Orleans Co., NY Hinckleys
Posted by: June Pixton (ID *****6584) Date: September 21, 2002 at 18:04:25

Hi! I am hoping someone out there can help me. I have run into a dead end (no pun intended). My g-g-g-grandfather was a man by the name of Bradford Hinckley. As far as I can tell, he was born in New York around 1824 and married Margaret Barry about 1846. They had 4 children that I know of: Mary born 1847, Eva or Emily born 1849, Abel Case born 28 May 1851 and Avery Smith born 3 Apr 1853.

Margaret died in 1857 in Orleans Co., New York and Bradford died the following year (1858) in Medina, Orleans Co., NY.

The boys were adopted by Jonathan Lyman Root, but I do not know what happened to the girls.

What I would like to know is if anyone has Bradford's parents or know where the girls went. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have tried contacting the county historian and the names don't sound familiar to him. I have also been to the Orleans Co. Genweb which is very complete and cannot find any further information on where Bradford was buried or who his parents are.

Thank you so much for any help you can give.
