  1. I got this email from Naomi Killgore one of my researchers/descendant 9/14/12 thought it would help for those researching in this area~
    (Start) I see you posted the James Chagham deed to Oliver Delown on Barkhampsted Site.
    I have attached a deed that Oliver Deloon’s heirs (Uriah and Mary Rodman along with an Oliver Corbin) used to convey land to Isaac Mills. I think this is significant since Pat Morey and I share the Rodman line. I also attached a deed which shows my William Rodman was living in New Hartford in 1855. I don’t know where or with who?? Also attached is a death record of Pat’s Christopher Greene Rodman or Greene C. Rodman who died in 1854 in New Hartford. We can not find a place of burial for him. I read that one of the factories in town has burials but I don’t know which factory to be able to check if he is one of the burials on that factory property. My Rodmans worked in a cotton mill with Charles Strong in East Hampton/Marlborough area and I believe they probably worked with him in his New Hartford
    mill. I believe it was his mill that was burned by arson according to a letter I have which indicates that one of my relatives, David B. Rodman, had to get out of town fast because he had knowledge of it and left a personal trunk behind. I hope that trunk had his name on it and shows up at a New Hartford antique shop one of these days when I am looking.
    Oliver Delown/Deloon, Indian, was doing business with James Chagham, Indian, who had Rodman heirs. My Rodmans and Pat’s were in New Hartford as the whole family relocated to New Hartford in the 1850’s. After the death of Christopher Greene Rodman and David’s getting out of town, my William Rodman, Sr. relocated his family back to East Hampton/Chatham while William Rodman, Jr. enlisted for the Civil War from New Hartford
    but no mention is made of that on their memorials as his records were mixed up with his cousin, William C. Rodman, and his father, William Rodman, Sr. who both enlisted from East Hampton. Take care, Naomi
