Hello, Schofield / Scofield fans:
My G2GM is Christina SCOFIELD/SCHOFIELD (~1826-1880), the 2nd wife of Horace D PARET (1825-1880). They married 29 Aug 1858 and went on to have 2 children who survived to adulthood, Margaret Eliza and Julia Emma. They lived mostly in Middletown, Orange, NY.
Her parents seem to be Henry SCOFIELD/SCHOFIELD and Julia _?_ who lived in the nearby Town of Goshen, Orange, NY area in 1840 and 1850.
I've found them captured in the 1840 and 1850 Censuses as follows:
1840 Census - [Town of?] Goshen, Orange County, NY
1 - <6 yrs
1 - 8 & <10 yrs
