Badgley and Wisner Deed Abstracts, Onondaga, NY

When I was beginning my genealogy research I visited the Onondaga County Clerks office and looked at deeds. There were far too many to copy so I made notes on each, not really knowing what information would be important later. I will have to go back and gather more details but for now here is the information that I have for the Badgley and Wisner surnames. There are land sales for which I have no information about how or when the land was acquired. I can not place Josiah Badgley or the James Badgley of 1852 and 1857. I have bolded all names for easier reading. All names that have been highlighted have some family connection, even if I haven't figured out exactly what it was.

1784 - July 28. Josiah Badgley, late a lieutenant in the 1st New York Reg’t Commanded by Col. VanSchaick, sold the land he recieved for his service, located in the town of Fabius, Onondaga Co, NY, part of lot 17, for 11 pounds 4 shillings, to Samuel Broome of the city of New York, merchant.

Deeds are my hangup! I am impressed with your list --- gives me inspiration and a jolt to get started. Thanks

Barbara Poole said...

I've never done deeds, so I am also impressed. It must have taken a long time to go through the books and write it all down, or did you make copies and transcribe later? Either way, you shine in deed writing.

Joan and Barbara - Deeds are easy to look at here, just time consuming. I could not afford to copy all of them so I just made notes. Next time I go I'm going to make up a form so I get more of the information. Pam Warren at Granny's Genealogy currently is running an impressive series on the deeds she's found.

I've discovered some previously unknown (to me) relationships and sometimes wills or portions of will are found in the deed books. You should give them a try. I recommend starting in a small city/county rather than a big place as the clerks usually have more time to help you and are friendlier because there are fewer people needing their attention.

The Onondaga Co. deeds are somewhere on my to do list. Probably have to start with the microfilm version even though I prefer going to the Register of Deeds office in person. After reading your post, I wish I was looking at the Onondaga deeds right now.

I agree -- Pam Warren's meticulous work with her deeds is a thing of beauty.

Cathy,

Who are you researching in Onondaga County? I don't know when I'll get back to the clerks office - when I go to Syracuse the focus is on Mom these days - but you never know. I hope to have some extra time after school is out.

I also walk for exercise and cemeteries are more pleasant than my 55mph road so if you have any photos you need from the northern part of the county, let me know!

Apple, better late than never in answering?! Don't know how I missed your comment to me. I just looked at the microfilm for Onondaga Co., NY, Deed Records for my Richmonds yesterday. I found a deed in 1816 where Elijah & Elizabeth Richmond are the grantors. Of course it's the one thing that didn't copy well! It's in Volume "S" and page __ 4 (could be 24, 74, 84...?). I might try to get Onondaga Co. to send the deed to me, otherwise I'll try to view it on microfilm. Thanks for the offer.
