I have noted that the Senior Azel Abel of the 1810 NY Census is connected to the Abell family that is outlined in the book "The Abell family in America". In fact the makeup of his family in theNew York Census fits in nicely with that of the Azel mentioned in the book. However that record gives no mention of the other Azel. It is noteworthy that Azel in Michigan gave names to his children that were used by the family in the book, i.e. "Oliver", "Eunice", "Lydia", "Azel" and "Willis".
There is much information showing that Mary Regina Basney was the daughter of Joseph Bazinet and Madeleine Huyet dit Champagne, The name Bazinet having been anglisized to Basney in Clay Township. MI. Through the works of fathers Denissen and Tanguay, I have traced the Bazinet and Huyet lines back to the early settlements of Detroit, Montéal and other areas of "New France" - a fascinating story there.
Caril, You appear to have hit the same wall that I have, and perhaps someone out there can help us out.
