Yes, it is interesting. And some of your names are strikingly similar to those in my line. I believe that my line in New York goes back to Benjamin M. and Ruth Spencer of Cherry Valley, NY. Benjamin was a Revolutionary War soldier who, after the war, was given land in Cherry Valley as compensation. He and Ruth raised four children: Sardius, Jasper, Alcena and Philander. Philander (b. 1784) apparently was named after one of Benjamin's brothers. This is where there is a gap in the lineage. The Philander of 1784 was born too early to be the Philander who came to Ohio around 1840. Speculation is that he married and/or and had a son which he also named Philander, although records don't bear this out. The Ohio Philander married Jane Callon (a mystery womanin her own right)in 1824. They had 12 children. A son William married Malissa Delancey and they had three children: Burton, Eva Jane and Alton, my grandfather who I knew. Alton married Ethel DeGaugh in 1900 and they had five children Leroy, Claude, Floyd (my father), Mable and Allen. Digressing a little, one of the children of Philander and Jane was named Susan Jane. As you can see I have a strong case for making a connection from Benjamin to the Ohio Philander but there is that nagging gap in Philanders. Why no records exist is a mystery in itself. We have everybody else. The Ohio Philander and Jane Callon appear to have come out of nowhere. Hopefully, it will all come to light someday.
