Eliphalet Barden (1779, Norfolk, Litchfield, CT - 1854, Barton, Tioga, NY).Married Miriam Priest: (Abt. 1782, CT - 5-16-1857, Barton, Tioga, NY).You can see my earlier postings on this family.
I am still searching for Miriam's parents.A clue could be Aaron Priest, Jr. (1745, CT, probably Simsbury, Hartford, CT) who married a Miriam.He and Miriam had a least three children: Aaron, Rosabelle and Olive.Source:"Philo Webster, his ancestors and descendants", James Cozart, 1966.On Heritage Quest books.
Eliphalet's wife could have been named after her mother.Plus they had a child named Olive.Named after her sister?
Wondering if anyone else has looked at this Priest family.
