Jeannie, Thank you very much for the information you provided. It was the key I needed to continue my research. Right now I can tell you that Jonathan and Wealtha were in New York, in the Lisbon area, in the 1840 census. I couldn't find them after that, so my research on that line got stymied. Jonathan died October 28 1867, but I haven't found any information for Wealta yet, with the exception of her family of origin. I've sent for the obituary for Jonathan and we plan a visit to Chemung. I'll keep you posted. Please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
