Hi Donna: I notice on your message posting that you are descended from Benjamin Lynde and Hannah Phipps through their son James Lynde. I would appreciate learning whatever you know about Benjamin and Hannah, such as dates, geographical locations, etc.Do you have names of any other of their children?
My interest is this:I am descendend from a John Lynde who, according to census and other data, was born somewhere in Vermont in 1784 or 1785.He went to NY and was married about 1813 to a Mehitable Horton; John served in the war of 1812 from NY State, and by 1815 he and Mehitable were settled into what is now Erie County, NY, and raising a family.We have been exploring the possibility that John was a son of Benjamin and Hannah (Phipps) Lynde, but have found no documentation.
Perhaps information you have may give me more clues, or even eliminate Benjamin and Hannah as his parents.I would appreciate hearing from you. Harman
