Subject: Bruce obit and Rose Schoolcraft info

I found this obit on bklyn-genealogy-info dot com. It has a wealth of information including a link that will get you Free baptisms and marriages from very early Kingston and Schenectady records and others. Go down to Marriages and Indices, then go to Very Early Marriages 1600's to 1800's from Robert L Billard's family search database. As a matter of fact he gives up all copyrights and says he believes in free genealogy. This same info was being sold by Ancestry dot com so here it is for Free.
I'd also like to mention that I've found enough info on the William Rose/Roos/ Roosa/Rosa and Elisabeth Schoolcraft family to put them in Kingston in the 1780's and Not in Pepacton, Delaware/Ulster County. So just maybe I'm right when I've said they are not the ones whose son was kidnapped at Pepacton during the Revolutionary War and the history book is wrong.
Don't know if I've mentioned this before, but there is a Pepacton Creek near Grahamsville, Sullivan Co, that is very near the location of the Battle of Graham's Woods that took place during the Revolutionary War. You will need a local map to see it.
