Garlock Bible

I've "rescued" a very old bible which belongs to the GARLOCK and LEWIS Families of New York.

Based on limited research I do find David GARLOCK age 77 living in Newark, NY with his daughter Sarah Jane LEWIS age 49 and her husband Gideon L. LEWIS age 53 and granddaughter Lulu V. LEWIS age 20 during the 1880 census. Gideon is said to have been born in PA (parents born in PA & VT respectively), with the others all NY born, with both Sarah Jane and David GARLOCK noting that all their parents were also NY born.

I also find Frances GARLOCK, a widow living in Monticello, IA during the 1880 census with two children, a son George H. GARLOCK age 20 and a daughter, Minola GARLOCK age 8. George H. is said to have been born in NY and Minola in IA, providing some indication of the timing of the families move from NY to IA.

It appears that the LEWIS Family was living in Arcadia, NY during the 1850 census with Lyman LEWIS noted as the head of household and son Phinney LEWIS age 17 at that time. I also find Catherine LEWIS KELLEY age 45 and her husband Anson KELLEY age 54 living in Rutland, MI during the 1880 census with a niece Mary ENNIS age 9. Catherine notes that both of her parents were born in VT with Anson listing his parents as born in NJ and CT respectively.

Further I find Stephen HOELTZEL b. 12 August 1887 died Dec 1970 in Newark, NY and Robert HOELTZEL b. 1 April 1920 died 4 Jan 2004 in East Palmyra or Newark, NY. I'm hoping to locate someone from these families so that this precious family treasure can be returned to family. If you are a member of this family or know someone who might be, please contact me.
