Hi Sharon, Thank you so much for your generous offer.This is where I am now.
Bradford Drinkwater was the son of Zenas Drinkwater and Cynthia Ann Pendleton. He was married to Sylvina Morton in Northport,Hancock County,Maine on July 30, 1816.
I believe Sylvina's father to be Thomas Morton of Bristol.Thomas and his wife and children moved to Muskingum County, Ohio.Many of his already married children also moved to Ohio.I believe that daughter Sylvina also migrated to Ohio, but moved back to Maine with husband, Bradford Drinkwater.Here are the censuses that I believe track the movements of this family.
