I have a DNA link to sourced siblings of Thankful Partridge including Elizabeth Van Auken here on wikitree. Thankful married Henderick Zettle baptized in Schenectady in 1772.....and the 1800 Berne,Albany census places her in close proximity to Henderick. Thankful's first son was named after her father 'James' Partridge. Thankful's first daughter was named after her mother Elizabeth (Stephens) Partridge. I need to find a marriage certificate for Thankful and Henderick Pieter Zettle.......re. the 1800 Berne,Albany census......unfortunately it does not include the names of the children but the age range of the female's listed could include Thankful who was born circa 1779

The only thing I can recommend is going to a Family History Library and looking at this record - Marriage Index: Selected Areas of New York, 1639–1916
I did not find a marriage for her at Ancestry (library edition).

Her WikiTree profile references FamilySearch/Family Tree, which in turn references WikiTree.

Her birth/baptismal dates are not sourced at FamilySearch/Family Tree, nor is her marriage.
Thankyou,,,,I  do know they were probably married in New York because their first child James  Settle was born there before they moved to Ontario Canada. I appreciate your  suggestion

I typically look at the churches that were in the area within walking distance of the home. (If you know the cemetery where relatives are buried this might point you to the right denomination). If the church records are not available at a free site, ask a friend who has a subscription to check for you. If still nothing, send an email to the churches themselves. I've found them happy to assist. The more details you can provide them the better. If you can include "timeline analysis" that's bonus!
