James Stancliff(e) 1686 - 1712 in CT & descendants history into Chasm Falls, NY

First and foremost, I am NOT in ANY WAY related to the Stancliff's.
In doing my own family research I came upon an old article from a 1933 issue of The Malone Farmer:

file : malone-farmer-1933-april-june-0033.pdf

The article which appears to have been a continued series titled "EARLY CHASM FALLS FAMILIES", featured the James Stancliff (originally Stancliffe, with an "E" at the end) family of Middletown, Connecticut.

This article lists ALL of James' descendants and those that eventually settled in Chasm Falls, Malone, NY. This article is very RICH IN DETAILS giving names of children, wives, death info, locations, etc. It could be a gold mine for someone trying to locate Stancliff ancestors. I have the article saved in jpg format. it is rather large so to view it you would need to be able to open it within the body of an email or with a program that has magnification and scrolling capabilities such as Microsoft Picture It, etc. It appears nicely and easy to read in AOL and Yahoo emails. When opening it to view it on your computer screen it is very difficult to read.

I am only saving this article for a limited period of time. But anyone wishing to have it, I will gladly email it to you both within the body of an email and as an attachment. This is a fantastic article. It would make it so easy for everyone if everyone's family history was summarized in articles like that of the James Stancliff family and descendants.

If you email me PLEASE INSERT "JAMES STANCLIFF ARTICLE" in the SUBJECT line so that I know it is not spam as I do not open emails from those I do not know so, again, PLEASE, use the subject line "JAMES STANCLFFE ARTICLE".
