I am interested in finding information about my ancestor William HORTON who resided in Wayne County, NY in the 1850 & 1860 US census. Any guidance I can get about where to find more information would be appreciated.
The family in 1850 living in Butler, Wayne, NY, included:
Wiliam W Horton 40, Jane Horton 38, Amelia E. Horton 11, Emma Horton 5, George H Horton  3, William Horton 0.
In 1860 Jane, Amelia, Emma and William Jr are gone and William Sr is married to Phebe Ray-Davidson-Horton and their family is blended living in Savannah, Ontario Twp, Wayne, NY.
William Horton 50, Phebe M Horton 39, George H Horton 12 (his), William M Davidson 11 (hers), Merret P Horton 9 (his)
The son, George Hiram Horton, was married 10 Nov 1865 in Manchester, Ontario, New York to Anna Almira Wilkinson. She was a niece of his step-mother Phebe Ray-Davidson-Horton. The Horton and Ray families left New York by 1867-68 and relocated to Wisconsin & Iowa. The family movements after 1870 are fairly solid. It is the New York early history that I am struggling to find details on.

Hello, fellow researchers! I am trying to break a wall in my tree and hope you can assist me. My GG-Grandfather (James N. BREWER) is supposed to have been born in Mt. Morris in 1796. I know this was before birth records were kept, but I am hoping for some leads on the surname. Were there other BREWERS in the vicinity around that time? I can't find much in the way of town histories for that area. He was on the 1830 census but by 1840 had moved to Michigan. He was married to Almira Rankin who was there with her parents in 1820. They had three children there (Harriet, Clarissa and Franklin). Her parents were Samuel Rankin and Azubah Whitcomb. Any help you can provide would be much appreciated. Thank you.

VREDENBURGH/CONVERSE  I am trying to prove a marriage between George VREDENBURGH and Sally CONVERSE (beyond two Wayne Co Gazetters and the Wayne Landmarks book that mention this union) in order to prove they are the parents of my ancestor Ellenor VREDENBURGH,  born 8 Feb 1825 in Wayne County, NY.

My 4th great grandfather was Joseph WHEELER, born 15 Dec 1775 in Connecticut. He married my 4th great grandmother Hannah (unknown maiden name), likely in New York about 1795-1796.
