My son and I are doing a genealogy project for scouts and we are looking for information on Louisa or Louise Brink. She was born 1818 and died 1876. She was born in Albany Co. NY as per the 1855 NYS census.She was married about 1844 (oldest son born 1845 in Albany Co. NY). In 1850 census she and her husband Abram Reed were in Johnsbough, Warren Co. NY and in the next household was Ausker Brink. In 1855 and 1860 they were in Otego, Ostego Co. NY and from there went to Lindley, Steuben Co. NY. Louisa is enumerated in 1875 in Lindley but not in 1880. LDS site has her buried in Presho Cemetery in Steuben Co, Ny. As she was in the area at the time I can suspose that she was indeed buried there. On personal inspection of the cemetery I didn't find her grave, but many stones were damage with the weather conditions and such.I believe that Louisa's first two children were named from the Reed side. (Charles and Phebe.) I'm hoping that the next two were named from the Brink side. The names being Catherine and Oscar. Oscar is my g-g-grandfather. I would like to trace further back on the Brink side but have no idea where to start. Any help greatly appreciated feel free to contact me at Thank You Nancy S, Reed-Tracy
