Thanks for your quick response.I think we have a match.I don't have a lot of information and most of it has not been documented, but here goes:
Benjamin Beckwith b 18 Oct 1706 in Lyme, New London, CT - spouse unknown
Silas Beckwith b 27 Dec 1752 in Lyme, New London, CT - married 3 times: Alma Smith, Anna Atwell, Anna Reeves, d 13 Oct 1835 in Sumner, Lawrence County, IL
Samuel Beckwith b 15 Feb 1781 (son of Alma Smith) married Hannah English, d unknown
Alma Beckwith b 20 Jan 1818, m Henry Oldroyd,
d 2 Feb 1876.This is my great great grandmother and she is buried with Henry in Roseville, Tioga County, PA.(This is just below Elmira, NY)
I don't know if Samuel went west with the others as I don't have any death information for him, and I have searched all cemeteries in the vicinity of Tioga County, PA and Elmira, NY with no luck.
About 2 years ago, I corresponded with Wally and Mary Erickson who also have Beckwith ancestors.If you are interested in their e-mail address, please e-mail me privately and I will send it to you.
