Here is some info I have on Philo. According to this he was going by thomas. The Hezekiah I have was born 1773 in Mass or Ct. His father is,John,JOSEPH, JABEZ, JOHN, RALPH, JAMES, JOHN, JOHN.What family member are you related through? Keep in touch, I have a lot of info on Philo's line. I hope it helps you.
Philo & Mariah's daughter Lucin Lucinda Goreham was born 2 April 1843 in New York. The sale of the Goreham's NY land and the birth of daughter Mary Mariah Goreham 11 July 1845 in Winchester Twp, Dundas Co., Ontario, Canada provides a very close estimate of when they went to Canada. When Philo is listed in the Canadian census, it would appear that he was using the name of Thomas, but that could be a middle name. Philo is not listed on the 1851 Canadian census with his family. Prior to this Philo appears on the first page of the 1848 censue ofSouth Grower, in upper Canada. Later this was known as the County ofGrenville and later it was known as Dundas.Only Philos name is on this farm census and it shows that he did own some farm land. From Rose Turner Does Josiah Goreham sound familiar to anyone? I received this from Justina Cook who is a relative through Rhoda (Wade) Goreham's third marriage (William Smith). The name doesn't ring a bell but his last name is spelled correctly for our clan! Margie Russell
