  1. Hi,
    Glad I found this website downloaded your guide to my computer. Hope to visit someday. I have been researching my roots that my ancestors the Livingstons’ two of them signed the Declaration of Independence and lived in New York. Being a descendant hope to trace my heritage.

  2. I am looking for my grandmother’s family and came across the name of the town of Livingston Manor. I believe the family’s name was Minor or some variation thereof. My grandmother’s name was Mildred, and she had a number of sisters and brothers. The ones I know of were Elizabeth and Muriel and possibly Wilbur. Can anybody please help me? I believe my grandmother was born around 1890 or so and subsequently married a man whose last name was Miller and then remarried later, to a Mahlon Hulbert, a general store owner in Hamden, NY. I would be so grateful to find out this information.

    interesting, my family was given the partner desk from the Livingston Manor House Museum as a gift to say thanks for all of the years the Ellsworth family caretook the property. We had it shipped to California when OPA Ellsworth passed away – but unfortunately, it was taken down in our home fire and no longer in any shape to be restored. Any other info. email me at the above address. – Collette Ellsworth

    Hello,

    We saw the THR article about the Beaverkill today. My husband said that when he was a boy in the late 30’s, his family went to this area to camp at a CCC campsite. Does that ring a bell to anyone? Is there still a campsite in this vacinity? We’d be interested to know. He said they would go to church in Lingston Manor.

    Thank you.

    I am trying to find information about the Palatines who arrived in Livingston Manor in 1710 and worked in the Tar Industry under Gov. Robert Hunter as “servants of the crown” producing resin or pitch used by the British Navy for ship building. I would like to visit the area insearch of information about my ancestry who were German but came over from England as Immigrants. The name of my ancestor was Johan Balthasar Anspach. Any help would be greatly appreciated for the planning of a trip this year. I live in Rockford, Il.

      You are looking at the wrong Livingston Manor – you want the former area up around Albany.

    • Chuckie says:

      I know the Anspach family history quite a bit. There is some information in a book called “Upstate History” by Phil Longo. The family ran a Gambling House and one of the largest prostitution rings in the north east around the 1800’s. After some a few nomadic bandits robbed the house and burned it down. It is now the local post office. If you look behind the building there is a tombstone that states, ” Here lies the WHORE MASTER”
