Dusenbury/Dusenberry Westchester NY
I am researching my Dusenburys from Westchester to WI.I found a reference at the LDS site that the parents of my William Dusenbury b. 10/16/1818 NY were Gilbert Dusenbury and Althea/Altheir Merritt yet I cannot find proof of that.William likely died in WI ca 1880-1900.William married Harriett Bouton/Boughton ca. 1840 per the LDS records and she died by 1870 when he was married to "Clarissa" (Clarisse Shays).Both were on the 1880 census as well.
Does anyone have a Gilbert and Althea Dusenbury in their line?I tracked an "Altha" Dusenbury in Rye, Westchester Co., NY on the 1850 census (b. ca. 1784)and guessed she was the Althea who married Gilbert.She likely died before 1860 in Rye.
Any help out there?
