About Syphers Family

Added GPS readings for gravestones in the Portsmouth, Greenland, Stratham, Hampton, Portland 
areas for Syphers and Sterling graves I visited a while back. There are also other relatives 
from same or adjacent sites. GPS readings (if available) can be found in the comments section 
of gravestone photos.

 As I originally said when I first started this site, some of this info was from other folks  work 
 posted on Ancestry.com. Since checking more thoroughly, I've found that our Sterling / Starling  line has a problem before Joseph Starling, born 1721. Some folks have used his mother as  Abigail 
 Patchen but I and some others can't find verification of that. We find her children listed  without 
 any mention of Joseph or any other linking data. So I'll leave what I had put originally but it  may 
 well be NOT accurate!

10/16/15  INTERESTING READING found under Josiah Starling Sr. (born 1762). Includes and account  of 
 the original "modern" settlement and dividing of Monhegan Island and also an account of  Josiah's 
 service in the Revolutionary War!

9/7/15 LOOKS LIKE SYPHERS (CYPHER, SYFFER AND VARIATIONS) MORE LIKELY GERMAN. THIS IS BASED ON  A 
 BOOK I JUST FOUND ONLINE. 2ND PARAGRAPH HAS WILLIAM (A DIRECT ANCESTER) AS BROTHER OF JOHANNIS.  THERE IS INTERESTING READING INCLUDING ORIGIN OF THE NAME....TAKE A LOOK.  https://dcms.lds.org/delivery/DeliveryManagerServlet?dps_pid=IE197619 A DEFINITE DUTCH CONNECTION IS THAT OF WILLIAM'S WIFE PETRONELLA STORM WHO WAS OF DUTCH  ANCESTRY.
 9/4/15 I FEEL QUITE SURE THAT THE SYPHERS LINE IS DUTCH. THE CHILDREN OF WILLIAM (1705-1763)  FROM 
 NEW HACKENSACK, DUTCHESS COUNTY, NEW YORK WERE MEMBERS OF THE REFORMED DUTCH CHURCH OF NEW  HACKENSACK....
 Welcome to this site! This will be an ongoing effort at updating information by me, Dave  Syphers. I 
 welcome any information or pictures that our family would like to correct or add to this site.  You 
 may contact me via email at davidsyphers@gmail.com. 
 Currently I am keeping most editing capabilities to myself but may relax this sometime in the  future. (However, family members who join the site may edit their immediate family) Hope you enjoy exploring the site....I am constantly adding to information.  The oldest ancestors of the Sterling line are from other folks work. I'm not sure of some of it  and 
 will work towards verifying.
 But it looks like the Syphers line comes from the Dutch and the Sterling line came from  Scotland 
 and eventually to Monhegan Island, Maine.
 Syphers came to New York but our part of the line left for New Brunswick, Canada as "Loyalists"  (to 
 the King) when the Revolutionary war broke out. They later moved south to Maine and beyond.
