In Reply to: Re: Loya, Thomas, Chazy NY by Elizabeth Jessie Loya of 544

Hi Elizabeth,

I sent out mail to four or five of the regulars in this forum, and nobody answered -- albeit, it looks like most of the postings regarding the Chazy Loya's are a little old now. If you'll reference messages number 236 and 237 in this forum you'll see some details of my recent discovery. I have lurked in this forum for a while, only posting a couple of times -- but have long suspected my Loya belonged to the Thomas and Lucy couple. I only recently received documentation backing that up. My great grandmother, Elizabeth Louise Loya is the daughter of Thomas Loya and Lucy Donner (as written on her death certificate). Elizabeth was born in Chazy, NY on June 17, 1871 (presumably a twin to Emma?). She married Theodore (aka Theophile) Beaudry in 1888, bore 17+ pregnancies and died in childbirth in 1911 in Rutland, VT. Many of the family documents are recorded in the same towns that the Loya clan is traditionally located in, Shoreham, Orwell, Rutland, Chazy, Ticonderoga, etc. I am in a quandary regarding the apparent unknown connection of Elizabeth with Thomas and Lucy. Was she an outcast? Pregnant before marriage? She married a Roman Catholic, was that an issue? She would have been sixteen when she and Theodore married. Does anybody have a copy of Emma's birth record? Would there be mention of a twin? Thanks if you can help or drum in a few more of the Loya clan to hash this out.

Many blessings,
Heidi Agin -- apparently another descendant of Thomas and Lucy.
