I'm looking for information about Sylvanus (Silvanus) Greatreaks (Greatrax).He is listed in the 1790 and 1800 New York censuses and as an enlisted man in the Ulster Co. Militia during the Revolutionary War.
There is also a Silvanus Greatracks (Greatreaks) born 21 June 1745 in Wrentham, Mass. to John and Patience (Pray) Greatracks (Greatreaks).
Are these two the same person?
Does anyone know anything about Sylvanus' children?
I'm especially interesting in seeing if there is a connection between Sylvanus and Oliver Greatreaks.The latter is my great-great-great-great grandfather.
