In re: message 758 - correction in error. Stephen is more closely related in age to Nathaniel, Jr.
Now awaiting info from a party who has a lead on connecting James with Hannah Beebe. That would be the last link needed for the immediate family.
Edwin Hungerford remains a mystery, but obviously of some relation to both Elias (Nate, Jr.) and Stephen.Do you have a location for Nathaniel, Sr.?Is his a documented line?Any connection to Green Hungerford?
I also suspect some relations around Ontario Co., NY.
Next step may be investigating 1830 & 1840 census forms for some Eastern states.
