Enjoyed your site very much. My 3g grandfather, Ozni HILDRETH was born 13 Jul 1794, Herkimer Co., NY. He married Jane STARK 4 Mar 1817 in Oppenheim, NY. He served in the New York Militia during the War of 1812, and he received a pension for this service. Ozni Hildreth's parents were Edward Hildreth and Sarah FARR. They were from Chesterfield, NH and children prior to Ozni were born in NH. I will be happy to answer any correspondence concerning these families and exchange information. Does Oppenheim, NY still exist? Is it in Herkimer or is it in Montgomery county? Ozni Hildreth's wife, Jane Stark, is said to be a grandaughter of the General John Stark of Revolutionary war fame. Does anyone have anything on this? Thank you very much for the opportunity to post this query. (Note: Oppenheim is now part of Fulton County.)
