I've consulted the Wakefield book and already have the information you've listed.
My problem is that my Elisha Wakefield (my 3rd ggrandfather) arrived sometime before 1841 in Ellsworth, ME (Hancock County but not far from Steuben) with his grown son Elisha, Jr. and wife Sarah Cook.
I don't know if this is the same Elisha Wakefield who's listed in the Wakefield book. Of course, it seems highly likely.
If I can verify this link, then I have a Mayflower ancestry! (Not that this is my motivation. I'd just love to break down this brick wall.)
By the way, the house that Elisha and son built is still standing and is occupied by my first cousin. I used to play near there as a child.

Any further tips you can offer will be appreciated!
