Looking for parents and siblings of Benjamin Flandro (spelling could differ) who was born about 1800 or earlier in New York. The 1820 census lists him in Stamford, Delaware, NY. We know he was married to Roxanna Fowler, though we know nothing more of her. The couple's two known sons were William Fowler Flandro (born 26 Jan 1826 in Delaware Co.) and John Flandro.
The family story is that when William was a small child, there was a fire at the family home. Both Benjamin and Roxanna were killed. John was older and stayed in NY (Albany), but a family by the name of Cleveland took young William and raised him in Quincy, Illinios.
Does anyone have any information about this family or where Benjamin might connect up with the notorious Flandreaus of New Rochelle, NY? This has been a puzzle to my family for many years. Any help is greatly appreciated!
