The husband of Zilpha Conger was David Sayles.They had one child - a son, Solomon Sayles.I'm really trying to learn more about David Sayles.Here's what I have:
1.DAVID8 SAYLES(EZEKIEL7, EZEKIEL6, JOHN5, JOHN4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1 SAOLE) was born Abt. 1790 in VT?, and died Aft. 1820 in VT?.He married ZILPHA "QUILLA" CONGER Bef. 1811, daughter of CODINGTON CONGER and ZILPHA ROSS.She was born Abt. 1793 in Danby, VT?, and died March 15, 1854 in Moira, Franklin Co, NY1.
Notes for DAVID SAYLES:
Since there is documentation that his son, Solomon V. Sayles, was born in Oct 1812, we can assume that David was also in Bangor in 1812 (but he is listed as David Sayle).However, he may have been away serving in the War of 1812.There is evidence that he served as Constable in Bangor, NY, chosen at the first town meeting on 6 Apr 1813 (source:Hurd, 1880).Did he go back to his family in Vermont when the War of 1812 broke out in (month)?
1810 census - not found
1820 census, Danby, Rutland Co, NY:David Sayle: males 1- 0 - 0 - 0 -1 (Solomon and David);females 0 - 1 - 0 - 1 -0 (daughter & Quilla).
Notes for ZILPHA "QUILLA" CONGER:
LDS records submitted by Jeanette Conger, of Gig Harbor, WA, show that Zilpha Conger was married to David Saylor.I believe his last name should be Sayles, and will show this in my database until proof one way or another can be found.
1850 census?She probably went to live with relatives after her husband died.
Child of DAVID SAYLES and ZILPHA CONGER is:
2. i. SOLOMON V.9 SAYLES, b. October 26, 1812, Bangor, Franklin Co,NY; d. November 22, 1898, Hermon, St. Lawrence Co, NY at age 86 yrs 26 days.
Generation No. 2
2.SOLOMON V.9 SAYLES (DAVID8, EZEKIEL7, EZEKIEL6, JOHN5, JOHN4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1 SAOLE) was born October 26, 1812 in Bangor, Franklin Co,NY, and died November 22, 1898 in Hermon, St. Lawrence Co, NY at age 86 yrs 26 days2.He married SARAH D. DAVIS April 12, 1834 in Bangor, NY, daughter of LEMUEL DAVIS and CLARISSA ALLEN.She was born April 12, 1816 in Bangor, Franklin Co, NY, and died August 03, 1906 in Hermon, NY at age 90 yrs, 3 mos, 22 days3.
Notes for SOLOMON V. SAYLES:
Where did he grow up?
Bangor was organized from Dickinson on 15 June 1812.The War of 1812 was fought in that area of NY and Malone, NY was occupied briefly by the British.We know from census records that he was a clergyman, a "Christian preacher."Seaver (1918) wrote that he was a minister at Brushton, Franklin Co, NY.It may be impossible to discover more about Solomon since the registers of Franklin and Moira counties were destroyed by fire on 9 May 1900. There was also a fire in Bangor in 1942 and all records of the Town Hall were destroyed.
1840 census:Bangor, Franklin Co, NY
1850 US census, Bangor, Franklin Co, NY:Solomon Sales (35), carpenter & joiner, wife Sarah (29), and children Carolina (14), Sidney (11), Clarissa (7), Rhoana (2), David (6 mons).

1870 census - not found
1880 census, Solomon and Sarah Sayles were in Hermon, St. Lawrence Co, NY; his parents were shown as born in Vermont - this needs to be checked.
