misinformation on your site - so I'd like to correct it.

The wife of Andrew Loyster was NOT Betsy Briggs, as stated in the December 1962 issue of

His wife was Elizabeth V. Van Dorn, daughter of John Van Dorn and Alchey Voorhees.  

This Elizabeth was born 22 Feb 1807 in Charlstown, NY. She married Andrew Loyster on 14 July 1831
in Skaneateles, NY. The Reverend Brace married them.

This information comes from two sources:
1) My grandmother's diary (Florence Ogden 1877-1952) Andrew and Elizabeth were her mother's parents,
and her "Grandma Elizabeth lived until she was 16 years old.

2) A DAR application of Fannie Ogden Day (Fannie was Florence's older sister, who was 21 and married
when Elizabeth died.

Thanks for listening. I hope that I can ultimately spread this information to other descendants of
Elizabeth Van Dorn.
