My Family Research Pages


Nothing I have posted here should be trusted without documentation
Very little of this is documented but Clearly Fanny Hosner is a descendant of Nicholas & Fanny Hosner

The material on these pages is not complete and not up to date.
Visitors are warned that if proofs are not listed it is not documented.
Family Notes will be added to and updated as time and inquiries allow.


NO DOCUMENTATION for these families or names other than what I have listed here.

This is the beginning of a webpage and still has lots of work yet to be usable

  John Hosner Family   —     William D & Hannah (Hosner) Sweet


All the known children of Nicholas & Hannah (Conradt) Hosner.  Appears Nicholas
died sometime between 1834 and 1850 as Hannah is married to another man in 1850.
About 1857 or so most of the family relocates to Van Buren County, Michigan.
Appears that Hannah lived with Philander & Abigail in Antwerp Township.

The Sentinal
South Haven, Michigan
May 3, 1884:

One of the most heart-rending scenes ever presented to the people of this
county was enacted at the county farm at two o'clock Wednesday morning. At
that hour by one of the inmates the county house was discovered to be on fire and
in less than an hour it was a mass of smoldering ruins with the bodies of fourteen
of our pauper poor engulfed within. From the location of the flames at first it is
surmised that an inveterate smoker, Josiah Myers, had arisen from his bed to
enjoy an hour with his pipe and from his thoughtlessness the building took fire.
The total loss is estimated at $12,000, on which there was an insurance of $5,300.
Superintendent Cash and family barely escaped with their lives so rapid were the
flames. The building contained thirty five paupers and Superintendents W. W.
Hodge and Sam Holmes were thus left with twenty one entirely destitute people
with not so much as a shingle to cover them. Their especial fitness for their
positions is evidenced in the fact that arrangements were at once made for the care
of their charges in the cultural society building at Lawrence and they we already
more comfortable than many anticipated they could be. The dispatch announcing
the fire was delivered to Will Hodge about half past nine. He immediately
harnessed his Ned Allen trotter and before noon was on the farm attending to the
wants of the needy, Mr. Holmes having already arrived by train from Paw Paw. A
list of the dead are:

Henry Baker, liked by everybody and a county charge since before the present
farm was purchased.

Benjamin Bogardus, aged 46, from Breedsville
Elizabeth Curtis, an insane woman.
Fred Eckenburger from Decatur, aged 19.
Peter Golden of Keeler.
Deborah (Debby) Gravatt, of Waverly, aged over 70, was seen trying to
get to the room of Caroline Shearer to assist her out, otherwise would
have undoubtedly have escaped.
James Johnson, an Old sailor 88 years of age from Covert.
Caroline Long, aged 40 from Covert
Josiah Myers of Geneva, 83 years of age and supposed to have been the
unwitting cause of the fire. Father of H. J. Myers and Mrs. S. Hosner of Geneva,
Mrs. Charles Thayer of Bloomingdale and Mrs. Milo Baker of Watervliet.
The
old gentleman was addicted to an excessive use of opium and tobacco and if not
watched would smoke his pipe while lying in bed. His children humored his
wishes and provided some comfort for him during his life there.
Benjamin Reynolds of Columbia, aged 46.
Caroline Shearer from Covert, aged 35, as sister of Henry Shearer of this
village, one of the kindest and best natured person ever on the farm as an inmate,
being very faithful in all instance.
Jonathon Sargent, of Waverly, over 70 years old.
Thomas Sawyer, an insane colored man recently from Kalamazoo asylum, being
cared for here to make room in the asylum for one of our insane.
Mrs. Lovina Williams and her eight year old daughter from Bangor, two of her
little boys escaping. The husband and father is now in the State house of
Corrections for ill treating the wife and children. Supt. Hodge had arranged to
send the little ones next week to the State School at Coldwater.
Thirteen of the fourteen paupers were burned beyond recognition. Their
remains were gathered in one coffin and buried on the county grounds. The board
of supervisors have been notified to assemble and will undoubtedly at once take
step to provide further for the Necessities of those still living. Sheriff Van Auken
was prompt with his duties and is one of the best fitted men for an official that
there is in the county.

Obituary
        Harriet Myers was born in New York, April 13, 1838. When she was
eight years of age her mother passed away and a few years later the family moved
to Michigan and settled in Bloomingdale Township, where some of them have
since lived. She was married May 20, 1859 to Milo Baker of Antwerp. To this
union ten children were born, nine girls and one boy, all of whom are living.
        In 1866, Mr. Baker and family, in company with Sylvester Hosner, moved
to Geneva and cut down the trees which made their first house. About 1878 the
family moved to Watervliet township in Berrien Co., where they lived until the
spring of 1887, when they moved back to their present home. Mrs. Baker's death
occurred Sunday evening, Sept. 13, being the first death in Mr. Baker's family
after an illness of one week.
        To know Mrs. Baker was to respect her, and in her death a large number of
neighbors have lost a friend. She leaves to remember her an aged husband, ten
children, one brother and one sister, twenty grandchildren and one great grand
child, besides a large friends.
        The funeral was held from the Chambers School house Tuesday Sept. 15 at

History of Otsego County, New York 1740-1878

        NORTH BURLINGTON BAPTIST church - In giving the history of this church, the writer labors under difficulties from defective records, but in the main believes he is correct. On the 9th day of February, 1797, three brethren and four sisters met together to organize a gospel church, and agreed to meet on the 21st day of the same month, at which time they appointed Elder Ashbel HOSMER and Jonathan NICHOLS to draw up articles of faith, and a covenant. On the 7th of March following, the said brothers and sisters, with some others, met at the house of William MILLINGS ,and entered into a particular examination of the articles of the covenant, on which they found themselves agreed. On the 16th of the following May, the brothers and sisters again met at the house of Brother MILLINGS, and subscribed themselves to the articles of faith and covenant, and formed themselves into a gospel church, and agreed to be known as the North Baptist church, in Burlington. On the 14th of June, same year, a council of brethren from several churches convened at the house of Brother MILLINGS, and after carefully looking into the matter, did unanimously give their fellowship as a church of Christ in gospel order, and also fellowshipped the church in choice of Elder HOSMER as pastor. The council made the choice of Elder William FIRMAN as moderator, and Elder John BOSTWICK, clerk; Elder John LASURE preached a sermon; the moderator gave Elder HOSMER the pastoral charge and the right hand of fellowship.

        In December of 1802, the church agreed to unite with the Third church, of Burlington, but in July, 1803, withdrew on account of not agreeing upon a place to build a house of worship. Pastors: Elder HOSMER until 1806; Father TAYLOR, of Edmeston, 1806-1815; Elder David ROBINSON, March 1815-1818; various ministers until 1822; Elder Israel HODGE, 1822-1831; Brother VINTON, Jan. 1832; Elder Robert ADAMS, Nov. 1833-Apr, 1835; Father CUTLER, for nine years; Rev. L. CASLER, for three years; various ministers since: Elder H. FITCH; Rev. H. H. FISHER; present pastor, Rev. L. CASLER (for third time).

        The church held their meetings in dwellings, school-houses, and barns until 1829, when they united with other denominations in building the UNION church, which they occupied one in each month until 1837, when they erected their present house of worship. It is worthy of note that our present church edifice stands upon the same spot once occupied by Brother MILLINGS' dwelling; so we are occupying the same ground on which the church was first organized. ...

_________________________

Centennial History First Baptist Church Burlington, NY Compiled by Rev. H.H. Fisher. 1893:

        ....  During this period the church has had 22 pastors and the assistance of 10 or more neighboring pastors and helpers such as Taylor, Cutler, Casler, Church, Gregory, Chamberlain, Seymor, Furman, Hosmer, Bostwick, Raymond.
