Fresh update, as new thread to show atop chronology of posts:
Here's how the surnames inter-relate:Lavina Taylor Hening Aplin's third husband Godfrey Aplin, son of Oliver of New England, had two sisters, Eliza and Rebecca, who both lived with Jacob Flint, Eliza's husband.These Aplins and Flints of New England are buried together in Rinard Mills Cemetery, at the Washington-Monroe County line.
Lavina's father Richard Taylor had had earlier (1824) land transactions with Jacob Aplin's father, Porter Flint Sr. (descendant of early Marietta pioneers.)Richard Taylor's Ludlow Township mill was right at those land transaction spots, at what became later called Flint's Mill, which later was renamed Bloomfield.Aplins, Flints and Taylors show side-by-side or nearby in early censuses before censuses break out family members by name.Aplins were mostly in Grandview Township, which later lost a chunk to become part of Monroe County, that contains Rinard Mills, but is adjacent to Lawrence and Ludlow where Taylors were.Henning doesn't show separately in the census; likely existed just within someone else's household or for a period between census years.
Aplins of Guernsey and Muskingum County are from Rhode Island, as are these Monroe-Washington Aplins, as were the Taylors of Mound Cemetery.Other references of variable basis also track across VT-NH-MA to southeastern NY/NJ.Exact relationships and sequences are yet fuzzy, but this is the ballpark.
