This is the archive for all information on our family. I worked with Frank H. Rathbun for over 25 years while he was the editor and publisher of the FAMILY HISTORIAN. He kept the spirit of the family alive with his early research and then with the publication of the FAMILY HISTORIAN. When he retired I decided to continue the work he had begun. We all are attempting to help in updating and correcting the family history that was written by John Clark Cooley of Oswego, New York in 1896-8.
