Levi Mayhew died around 1840 in Dutchess County, NY. He was survived by, among others, a daughter, Laura Mayhew Filkins and a son, Orrin Mayhew. I am descended from an Orrin Filkins who was born in either Dutchess or Columbia County, NY around 1810. I am trying to find out who was the Filkins that Laura married. This may help me find out if she was the mother of Orrin Filkins (and named him after her brother Orrin Mayhew).
