Backus Ancestors In Conesus


Note: My Richmond and Backus ancestors settled (and then left) the little town of Conesus in Livingston County, New York.

Hannah (Backus) Buskirk (named above) was my Laura (Backus) Richmond's sister.

Below is a hand-drawn chart given to me by my Dad's cousin, Marion George Allen.  It noted Laura Backus's birthplace as "Turkey Hill, N.Y."  Turkey Hill is mentioned several times in the Conesus history book.
