I am a descendant of Elizabeth Orvis & Samuel Vail. Elizabeth was the daughter of a Roger Orvis.
I've been a little confused though. I need to know if there is only one Roger Orvis who married both Ruth Howe and later Mary Anna Roxanna Seward, or if Elizabeth Orvis's parents were Roger Orvis & Mary Anna Roxanna Seward and that Roger Orvis had a father named Roger Orvis whose wife was Ruth Howe.
I assume the latter because one of Elizabeth Orvis's daughters was named Roxanna Vail, apparently after Roxanna Seward. But I have seen it suggested that there was only one Roger Orvis.
