Good Morning NY Researcher's-
I am looking for descendant's Of Thomas SARGENT/SERGEANT who settled the
South New Berlin area & New Berlin area from 1798 on. Thomas, it now
appears, was married twice. All his children were b. from 1802 on. They were
John b. 1802 m. Elizabeth JACOX in 1826 lived at Butternuts.
James(my ggg) b. 1802(twin to John)married Fanny HALE migrated to WI.
Lewis b. 1804 m. Mary "Polly" WENTWORTH lived in Cortland co & Deruyter.

Thomas Also had a twin brother Samuel that settled in South New Berlin area
and married Catherine MARVIN.
Their son's were: Hiram, Ely, Harley (who Morris Post master about 1830 I
I have been researching this line for about a year now and started with
names from a book published in 1908 by John Cassan WAIT, written by his
Ambrosia Sergeant WAIT. I am now at about 2,000 names but I still need much
more information. Who was Thomas's first wife, the book never mentions her,
only Sarah Sisson Deforest?
I found a census from about 1840 that says the male children were from VT.
I am putting up a web page but it is still in construction, visit and see
some of the allied families I have from the Chenango, Otsego, Cortland
and many more county areas in NY. GEDCOM is in Zipped version for download
It is located at: http://www.elknet.net/kresl/Penny/penny.html
Thanks for all replies.
