In 1867 from TX Ednesss Patterson Austin applied for Widow's Petition for the Estate of John Larkin Austin in Kaufman County, TX. The AFAOA has a copy of this petition on file.
I am also looking for any information about the parents of William Austin 1793-1853 amd wife Mary _____.; have not found a clue yet. An assumption by some is that his mother was a Crittendon, but this has never been proven. That family was living too far from this Austin group to make that connection viable. Any information on John Larkin Austin also will be appreciated. I am willing to share any family history with you. Thank you.

Subject: Seeking information on children of William L Austin lighthouse keeper
I am interested in the lighthouse at Point Conception, California, where William L Austin and Martha Avila Bunce lived and worked at the start of the 20th Century.
I read in your summer 2002 Newsletter that the couple had 8 children. Could you tell me their names and birth dates if possible?
The reason is I'm trying to develop a time-line of events in that region, and the birthdates could indicate the proximity of other events at that lighthouse

Subject: Diah Austin
In the late 1820's and early 1830's, 3 Pratt siblings married 3 Austin siblings in Stark County, Ohio. Through extensive research, we have been able to put together our Austin line from these unions: James Austin/Mary Ann Pratt, Joseph Austin/Huldah Pratt, Mary Austin/Daniel Pratt. However, the Pratt line is still unsolved. Through the on-line records of ancestry and family search, I finally located a daughter and granddaughter of Mary Austin and Daniel Pratt. This lead me back to another Austin family, that of Edward P. Austin. I was able to find him in Marion, Livingston Michigan, in 1850. Edward P. Austin is 12, David Austin is only months old, Jerusha Austin is 19 and then a Diah Austin is 35. Does anyone know of these 4 Austins? Thanks so much for any help you could give!

Subject: Caleb Austin
Looking for information to link Caleb Austin to Robert R. Austin. Caleb was living with Robert in the 1850 Federal Census in Erin, Chemung, NY and was of the age to be his father. Robert was born in 1813 suppossedly in Rhode Island. Caleb was 65 in 1850 so suppossedly born approx 1785.
Quite a few people on Ancestry claim that Caleb and wife are the parents of Robert. I have never been able to find the documentation to verify that. Besides Robert was born 1813 and Caleb and his wife were married in 1815. No other children of this marriage is listed with these people.
When I email and ask where they found the information, all I got was they copied another persons tree.
In the NY state 1892 census living with my Orrin Eddy Austin (1850-1928) who is the son of Robert is a John Austin age 68. I have not found this name before in my research. They were living in Erin, NY. Can anyone help me out with either of these problems.

Subject: John DELOS Austin in New York
I am looking for information on John Delos Austin, my Great Great Great Grandfather. According to census records, he was born in New York about 1807. He was married to Anna Maria Yolman / Golman, who was born in New York about 1813. By the year 1840, the census shows that John Delos and Anna Maria Austin had left New York and resided in Redford Township, Michigan. It is here that John and Anna began raising their family, beginning with the birth of their eldest son, Charles W., on 10 October 1844. Two years later, on 20 April 1846, their second son, Abner Delos (my Great Great Grandfather), was born. According to family legend, John Delos and Anna Maria Austin died in Detroit around 1851, possibly of cholera. No death records seem to exist and their graves have never been located. Their young sons were orphaned and later indentured to two prominent Michigan families. Both Charles W. and Abner Delos Austin volunteered in service to their country during the Civil War and both survived.
I am trying to locate birth and marriage information for John Delos and Anna Maria Austin and, of course, to connect them to their parents and other family members back in New York. I firmly believe that a key to making this connection is the very unusual middle name of "DELOS". If you have any Austin ancestors who share the name "DELOS" as a first or middle name, please contact me! I have been trying to connect with my New York ancestors for a very long time to no avail. I am considering planning a trip to New York soon but knowing which county or counties or even a general region in which the name "DELOS" is found would help me narrow my search a great deal.

My name is Kelly David (Maitland adopted last name) Austin. I have started my journey in my genealogy.
My dads name is Charles Robert Austin from Lyndon, Vermont, his dad was Albert Willard Austin, and mother was Stella Ruth Gero they lived in Franklin Vermont, and other relatives in Sheldon Vermont, I believe.
I have traced my lines back to Robert Austin of Rhode Island, I just wanted to be sure this is correct.
Also, I am trying to find more history of the Austins in this area, most seemed to be Carpenters, and Sheldon is a big Paper Mill town, and has been for a long time I want to say 150 years.
I have also visited a few cemeteries in the area to visit the graves of Austin ancestors, I have also taken pictures if anyone is interested.
I am looking forward to knowing my roots, and would like to be involved in the DNA project if you think this would be helpful.
Also, I am a big Revolutionary and Civil War 'buff' and am looking forward to the military stats when they become available.
Thank you for your time, and look forward to hearing from relatives.

Subject: JOHN and ROSE CURTIS-AUSTIN of SYRACUSE, ONONDAGA Co., NEW YORK & ESSEX Co., NEW JERSEY
TO ALL AUSTIN FAMILIES;
(From the SYRACUSE, ONONDAGA Co., NEW YORK & ESSEX Co., NEW JERSEY area)
I AM NOT a member of any AUSTIN family, "HOWEVER", I have in my possession a small family BIBLE that originally belonged to ROSE CURTIS-AUSTIN (b:06/24/1859) who was married to "JOHN S. AUSTIN" (b:09/26/1852). They lived in Syracuse, Onondaga Co., New York. They were married 01/26/1879 and had three (3) Daughters. Their names were;
GENEVIEVE LILLIAN AUSTIN-(ALLEN), BERTHA MILDRED AUSTIN-(PUTNAM) AND HARRIETT CURTIS AUSTIN-(PHILLIPS). This BIBLE, although printed at a later date (1936), probably by ROSE CURTIS-AUSTIN and has important family information in its family history area. I was able to trace JOHN S. and ROSE AUSTIN along with their Daughter BERTHA A. and her Husband RAYMOND E. PUTNAM (M: Aug. 30,1905) to SYRACUSE CITY, ONANDAGA COUNTY, NEW YORK (1930 U.S. CENSUS, Sheet# 11A, WARD 11, BLOCK 1128).
Some of the Vann Phillips family continued to live in MORRIS PLAINS, EAST ORANGE, ESSEX COUNTY, NEW JERSEY, but I have been unable to find any descendents there. HARRIETT CURTIS-AUSTIN-PHILLIPS married VANN RICHARD PHILLIPS in 1908.. Their Daughter is LORAINE AUSTIN PHILLIPS-YOUNG, (b: 6/12/1915=d: 07/1985) Married to HAROLD YOUNG on Oct. 25, 1941.. They continued to live near Loraine's Aunt Genevieve & Uncle Robert Allen in and around Morris Plains, Morris Co., New Jersey until their deaths.
GENEVIEVE LILLIAN AUSTIN-ALLEN Married; ROBERT L. ALLEN in 1917. They lived in and around Morris Plains, Morris Co., New Jersey until their deaths.
I located this family treasure while I was looking through our local church library (OLD TENNENT PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH located next to MONMOUTH BATTLEFIELD in TENNENT (Freehold area), NEW JERSEY). It seems our Pastor is an avid collector of old BIBLES and he puts them on the library shelves for all to look at. I am an amateur Genealogist and I happened upon this BIBLE and I asked if I could locate the family to return this treasure to them.
I would like to turn this bible over to a descendant of one of the Daughters if possible. It is Free as I feel that they would want this as a Family Keepsake for their future Generations to see and cherish... I also have amassed a lot of family information I will copy and send with the Bible…
"THIS BIBLE NEEDS TO GO HOME TO THE PROPER DESCENDANTS OF JOHN & ROSE AUSTIN!!!"

Michael, William and Eliza were b and d in Cherryfield, ME. Campbell was b in Portland ME. My mother's sisters went to Cherryfield and was told that many records were destroyed in a fire. Story has it that the women and children were sent from MA to Cherryfield before or during the Revolutionary War. I have not been able to confirm that information. I hope you can help me find William's father. I can't move any further without finding him. I have checked Ancestry.com, American Ancestors.org and RecordsBase.com. I am stuck and don't know where to go from here. Any suggestions will be greatly welcomed.
