I just learned the name of my ggg-grandfather--Simeon Williams who (acc. to later census data on his daughter Sarah Williams Doolittle) was born in Vermont and married to a woman from Massachusetts. I would love to hear from anyone who might recognize the name.
Sarah Williams was born in 1806 in NY, married in 1828 in Preble County Ohio and died in 1889 in Rush County Indiana.
I found a few possibilities in the 1790 census:
Simeon Williams New London, CT 1790
Simeon Williams Dighton, Bristol, MA 1790
Simeon Williams Taunton, Bristol, MA 1790
Simeon Williams Dracut, Middlesex, MA 1790
Simeon Williams Washington, Dutchess, NY 1790
Simeon Williams Hartland, Windsor, VT 1790
ANd I found a Simeon Williams who died Aug. 29, 1808, aged 27 yrs, and is buried in the Potter Road Cemetery Potter Road, City of Rome NY.
