Subject:  Surname - HOSMER family
This line comes from Thomas HOSMER (brother to James HOSMER).. who arrived from ENG into MA.. then became one of the founders of Hartford, CT.. with Rev Hooker.. in 1636. My line comes down several generations in Hartford Co, CT and finally winds up with Stephen HOSMER (1703/4 - 1761) m to Deliverance GRAVES (1713 - 1758). They had 13 children that I know of.. and from them.. the NY story evolves.... Tthe children, b. 1731 to 1756, were:
  • Sarah,
  • Stephen,
  • Marrianne,
  • Titus. Titus m Lydia LORD and remained in CT - in Middletown.
  • George,
  • Anne,
  • Deliverance,
  • Timothy. Timothy m Elizabeth SMITH and moved to Avon, Livingston Co, NY, although this was after all the children were born.. in Farmington, CT.
  • Esther,
  • John,
  • Prentice,
  • Mary
  • Graves Hosmer . . . . . . . . . [2]
2. Graves Hosmer, (276/51)b. c. 1756 in Hartford, CT. In Rev War out of New London, CT. He m. Amy CONGDON. They had 4 children in CT:
  • Prentice Hosmer, b. 1790 and d. 1846. He m. Helen Henry.
  • Sylvester Hosmer, b. 1794 and d. 1873. . . . . . . . . [3]
  • Titus W. Hosmer, b. 1796 and d. 1866, Wilson, NY.
  • Clarissa Hosmer.

From Avon, NY over to Niagara County:

3. Sylvester Hosmer, b. 1794 and d. 1873. He m. Rebecca Kittredge/Kitrage. She was b. 17 Mar 1800, perhaps in VT. Sylvester and Rebecca are buried together at Greenwood Cemetery and five of their children are named in Sylvester's estate papers. They died in 1873 and 1880 respectively. Children:

  • Maria,
  • James E. (d. young),
  • John (m Harriet Newell DWIGHT),
  • Stephen (m Angeline ASH),
  • Sarah (m. Edmund CASE),
  • Samuel C,
  • Jane
  • Charles Hosmer. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [4]

Children born between 1820 and 1841.

4. Charles Hosmer, b. 1841 in Wilson, NY. He m Isabel M MILLER (aka Libby and aka Elizabeth). She was b. in 1844. I have her NY death certificate and know little abt her parents except maybe her father was a "John" Miller? Charles died in 1923 and Isabel in 1926. They had just one child:

  • Ella S. Hosmer. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [5]

5. Ella S. Hosmer, b. 1865 in Wilson -- m. Calvin Lewis PRATT (b 1865 in Wilson)... and here we have come full circle to my great-grandparents... and the meeting of the PRATT and HOSMER lines. Again, still need marriage VR. Church records are going to be the way to go for that, I guess... (just have to figure out which churches!!) They died in 1902 and 1956 respectively. Daughter:

  • Marian Bell PRATT. She m. Edward Smith.

See anyone familiar? Have any sources I should be checking?
