Eighth Generation


708. Orville COMSTOCK45 was born on 19 October 1805. He died on 8 March 1879 at the age of 73 in Avon, Livingston County, New York. He was buried in Allen's Hill Cemetery, Richmond, Ontario County, New York.

Orville married (1) Jane Garlinghouse and (2) Mary Garlinghouse.

In February of 1829, my collateral ancestor Nathaniel Allen of Richmond, Ontatio Co NY sold his various tracts of land to his son-in-law Robert Rose. He had owned Lot 38 of the town and had sold many pieces of it through the years - it was obviously part of the town. At the time of the sale Nathaniel mentioned several of the present owners of the small parcels - one of these was "Orville Comstock, the tavern stand". So once again is one of those genealogical coincidences where two families that would one day be related are acquainted many years earlier.
Orville was my cousin - sixth cousin, five times removed - or five generations closer to our common ancestors, William & Elizabeth Comstock.
Nathaniel Allen was my third great grand uncle.
