You are the first person ever to communicate with me on any of these lines.

Here is what I have:


Hannah Skiff m. Stephen Losey.
She d. in Tioga County, PN. He was b. in Morristown, NJ and d. in Tioga County, PN.

They had six children:
Zebulon, 1800-1883 m. Julia Ann Amos
Joseph, 1805-1873, m. Electa Blake, 1810-1886
William, 1807-1868, m. Susan Ann Faulkner, 1821-1870
Mary Frances "Polly", b.1808-?, m. William Decker, b. 1797-?
Henry, b. 1813-1876, m. Mary Burleigh
Stephen Jr., 1818-1869, m. Deborah (unknown)

(Any info on this group would be appreciated.)

I don't have any children listed for any of the children above except Mary Frances.

Mary Frances m. William Decker.
They had the following child:

Catherine "Kate", b. Arpil 23, 1828, Dansville, NY, d. Oct 20, 1909, Gratiot Co., MI., m. Dennis Lincoln on Feb 8, 1845, Tomkins Twshp., MI (They had a bunch of children.)

William Decker (mentioned above) had a brother Stephen who had a daughter Myrtle.
I don't know anything else about the Decker's but somehow I'll bet our two Decker families are connected. Do you have anything on my William or his brother Stephen?
Back to Hannah Skiff and Stephen Losey.

I have Stephen's father listed as Zebulon Losey, b. 1743, Hanover, NJ, d. ca. 1765, Pequannock, NJ. He m. Phebe (unknown) who d. in 1776. Notes: Zebulon, wife and 5 children moved to Walpack, New Jersey. Two girls and Isaac stayed in Walpack. other sons, John and Stephen moved to Penn. and NY state.

It is unclear weather his wife was also named Phebe, along with his mother?

They had 5 children:
Stephen (see above)
John, b. 1783, NJ, d. ca. 1835, MI, m. Mary Charlotte Custer (several children listed)
Isaac, b. 1781, d. 1860, Walpak, NJ, m. Eleanor (unknown) (several children listed)
also m. (unknown) and I have 5 children listed for this unknown wife.
1st girl, b. Morristown, NJ, d. Walpak, NJ, m., Johathan Thompson
2nd girl, b. Morristown, NJ, d. Walpak, NJ, m. unknown Norris.


Zeblulon Losey's parents were:
William Losey, b. ca. 1695, Jamaica, NY, d. May 22, 1780, Hanover, NJ. and Phebe unknown, b. 1710, d. Aug 30, 1786, Hanover, NJ.

Jacobus (James)

William also m. a Seversmith and had 2 children.

Do you have anything else on these families? I have been stuck on these lines for along time.
