At Montrepose Cemetery in Kingston, NY, the name Dellevie caught my eye so I photographed Otto Dellevie's grave. I assumed the name was French. It wasn't. In trying to connect, I found the German immigrant widow, aged 90, living with her 4 single children in their 60s. How the heck can that be connected? Turns out, one of the sons had been briefly married. She died at 24, no children. But I found her family, and the connection quest was on.
I followed some relations out to Missouri from New York, who married someone with Tennessee ancestry, and from there back to colonial North Carolina. I made a couple connections along the way, including a large unconnected cluster that includes Jeremiah York.
Jeremiah's profile is a mess. It's also project protected, though I don't know how to determine which project that might be. I suspect maybe two different men married those two women. Maybe there was a bad merge once upon a time. The profile has lots of managers. Much of the family cluster relies heavily on findagrave. FAG can be a wonderful source, but its quality varies enormously. And it's a mess for this family cluster just like here on WikiTree.
Anyhow, I know hardly anything about colonial North Carolina or the York family. I think I need to toss this out to those who do and quietly back away. It's a very large unconnected cluster. I started out wanting to connect the Dellevies buried at Kingston, NY. I will work out from somewhere else to see about connecting it all.
My heartfelt thanks to anyone willing to tackle this Jeremiah York problem I've stumbled upon. I'm not qualified to do anything but call attention to it!
