Are any of his children buried there? Census records from Litchfield county, CT suggest that he had 4 daughters, one son. We have identified two daughters--Martha Patty, who married Harvey Davis in Delaware county and died there in 1876, and Anna, married Marcus Morris in Connecticut and removed to Portage county, OH. I have tentatively identified the son as Stephen Ranney, between 1790 and 1795 in Litchfield county CT, died in New York before 1836, married Olive Jaques, daughter of Jesse Jaques and Maria Boice about 1820. Does anyone know about the other two daughters?

I believe the first Betsey was the daughter of Ebenezer Robinson and the later one the daughter of brother, Issachar Robinson. Then there is the whole confusion on the children of Nathaniel (1756) and his brother Samuel (born about 1752), eg, which one is the father of the Nathan Jenkins that married Lydia Morse; and which one the father of Jacob Kniffen Jenkins?

ROOT - I have spent many years trying to find the maiden name of my gg-grandmother Elenor Root. What I do know is she was born in Delaware Co. (Delhi) on June 2, 1821. I also know, from census records, that her parents came from CT. She had her first child (Harry V. Root) in 1837 in Bath, NY. She married David B. Root prior to 1837. I wondered if she had a connection to Erastus Rootof Delhi but I can't find an Elenor that fits among those Roots. David comes from Chenango. His father was Nicholas Root, Jr. originally from Great Barrington, MA. I would appreciate any information anyone might be able to provide. Eunice M. Bellinger - posted 01-2016
