Looking for Harrington information
In researching my (Burdick) geneology, I had correspondence with a Joel Harrington, who mentioned that he had an ancestor named Philena.
In an 1850 census record from Frewsburg, NY (Chatauqua County) there is named:
Nathan Burdick - age 26
Joshua burdick - age 21
Philena - age 47
I am trying to find more about Philena.
Was she married to Nathaniel Burdick ? ( I am assuming by the age in the census that she could be Nathan's mother )
Was her last name Harrington ?
Was she a Native American ?
Does anyone have a current e mail for Joel Harrington ) the last I had was email@example.com, but it has evidently been changed as I can no longer reach him at that address. He had advised me (in 2005) that he had family in the Frewsburg area and the Philena mentioned above.
Knowledge about Philena might lead me to more about Nathaniel burdick, my gr. gr. grandfather.
Appreciate any reply/info
