My great great great grandmother was Betsy J. Ismond born 25 Sep 1803 in Middlefield, Otsego Co., NY, the daughter of Elias Ismond, and died 28 Jun 1890 in Hartwick, Otsego Co., NY.She married 8 Oct 1820 Samuel D. Jones.They had three children: LeRoy E. Jones b. 1821, Malvina Augusta Jones b. 1824, and Emily J. Jones b. 1825.
Elias Ismond was probably born in the early 1780s in Chatham, Columbia Co., NY and moved to Middlefield, Otsego Co., NY.He had nine children.Their names probably were: James (married Caroline Murphy), Levi M., Hiram (married Elizabeth Marks), Betsy J. b. 1803 (married Samuel D. Jones), Janet, Permelia or Pamela, Electa, Clarinda, and Polly.One of his daughters moved to Janesville, Wisconsin.
Elias Ismond married Betsy (Elizabeth) Pitts, also born in Columbia Co., NY.On Betsy J. Ismond Jones' death certificate it says that her parents were Elias and Jane Ismond.I would like to know if Betsy J. Ismond's mother was really Betsy Pitts, not Jane.I would also like to know more about Elias Ismond, who his parents were, and the rest of his ancesty.
