Closs of Herkimer/Montgomery & Wayne Co,NY

Hello, my Closs family are from originally the German/Prussian area before settling in Herkimer/Montgomery Co.'s and later Wayne Co NY. I descend from John Closs & Hannah Schill to their son, George Closs and Katherine Van Alstyne daughter of Martinus Van Alstyne, Katherine (Tieuntie) was 1/2 Native of the Mohawk/Mohican tribe of the Troy area.
George & Katherine had 5 children,4 boys,1 girl. I am from their first born son, Aaron Closs who married Catherine Elizabeth Laughlen of Ernestown,Ont.Canada, they had 5 daughters, their daughter Henrietta Closs is my g grandmother who married Samuel Northup in Lyons,Wayne Co, NY 1885.
Is anyone working on this line of Closs? I have some documents a lot of Pic's of headstones in Lyons and 1 photo of the Brothers Closs,1870, whom all came to settle Wayne Co from the Stone Arabia area of Montgomery & Herkimer area's of NY.
