Looking for information on the HUNGERFORD lineage for Eliza HUNGERFORD (probably, nee NICHOLS)and May HUNGERFORD.
On a recently found family document listing the birthdays for various member of the DAVID and HANNAH NICHOLS family (of Royalston, MA and later Frankfort, NY) the name "ELIZA HUNGERFORD" appears with a birthdate of February 24, 1810.
I believe HUNGERFORD is her married name and that her maiden name was NICHOLS as the list includes other Nichols daughters each given with her married name instead ofmaiden.
One such sister is Nancy [Nichols] LEWIS, the wife of DAVID LEWIS of Frankfort, NY.This family has known HUNGERFORD connections.Their son James H. LEWIS married Mary E. STEWAER who was a granddaughter of Mehitable HUNGERFORD (Nathaniel>Green>Thomas) and husband John STEWART.
May HUNGERFORD, 17 years of age and born in Frankfort, is listed as living with the David & Nancy LEWIS on the 1855 NY State Census.Her occupation is given as "servant." The immediate next door neighbor is the David & Hannah NICHOLS family. Could May be a daughter of Eliza NICHOLS and her HUNGERFORD husband and be working in her aunt's house next door?
The elder NICHOLS's, HUNGERFORD's and STEWART's and some of the LEWIS family are all buried in the Graffenburg Cemetery in Frankfort, NY.The elder LEWIS's along with other members of the NICHOLS and HUNGERFORD families are buried down the road in the Norwich Cemetery in Litchfield, NY.
Would appreciate hearing from anyone who might know something about this ELIZA HUNGERFORD.
