Let,s keep it simple in the beginning to avoid any confusion .Lockwood , Adolphus and Frederick Baxter received grants of land REMSHEG Grants in 1785 .All formerly of Westchester N.Y. I need to establish which one of these brothers was the ancestor of Adolphus Baxter my maternal Great Grandfather. Next is the dates of death and place of burial of Adolphus and his wife Caroline. born Ward 1st marriage to Marcus Chappell . 3rd records indicate my grandmother Alice Baxter had an older sister Agnes ; any information on her will fill a void.
