The info is from 1850 Hillsdale Co. census. Stephen and Hannah were living in Jefferson Twp.
Three brothers & families, Edwin, Elias and James owned adjacent parcels in Woodbridge Twp. James had a six-month old son named after his brother Elias.
The youngest brother, Hiram, then 12, and his sister Sarah, then 18, lived at the home of James & Elizabeth Purchase in Pittsford Twp. The Purchase family was also from New York.
In a subsequent census, Sarah stated that her parents were from New York & Connecticut.
This matches the answers given by Stephen and his wife on the 1850 census.(Stephen being from Conn.)
