I have researched your Charles Tainter/Taintor & believe him to be the son of GILES TAINTOR & MARY NEWELL WEST.Giles was born in CT to Charles Taintor & Mary Abbe.He married Mary Ann Nowell/West (depending on the source).
In the Charles M. Taintor book it lists Giles Taintor born July 1802, married Mary Nowell West of Boston, MA in May 1836.
Their children are listed as: Frank Lathrop Taintor, born March 1837 in Windham, CT. Charles Taintor born March 1840.Your 1880 Census or this could be off one year. Abby louise Taintor born March 1841. Henry Sherman Taintor born April 1842.
Giles Taintor is living in NY at age 75, in the 1880 Census.Dates of births are always suspect on Census' & other sources, but...
