Re: Mary Elizabeth Capen b 1868
Caroline was born at Rushford, Allegany County, New York, on November 17, 1817, daughter of Lewis Persons and Rebecca Dodge. My main interest is the Persons family from which my Dad descends. I have good information on Caroline. I have long suspected that her Capen husband was of the family of Aaron or Philip Capen, who were neighbors and relatives of the Persons at Rushford; but I have been unable to find anything on Aaron's or Philip's families. If you have interest in what I have, please ask; I am quite willing to share.
