Hi Ann, I saw your 2002 query concerning Thomas Rexford and wife Silva Everett. I was wondering if you might have any information on their daughter Cynthia? For years I thought my 4th greatgrandfather Jacob Collins's wife Cynthis might be a Spencer, possibly the daughter of Jonathan Lee Spencer and Levina Rexford, basing this theroy on the fact, Jacob Collins was on the 1812 tax list of Tioga Co., PA. and the fact when he moved with his family to Hocking Co., OH. he bought his property from Jonathan L. Spencer. It would stand to reason the son=in-law would buy land from his father-in-law. I do know Jonathan Lee & Levina had a son Jonathan, b. 1814 Tioga Co., PA. and when 11 yrs. of age he moved with his parents to Hocking Co., OH. After he married he moved to IL. and first went to Vermillion Co., Il, then to McLean Co., IL. where he spent the ret of his life. Ironically enough, Jacob Collins and wife Cynthis had among their children, two that also migrated to McLean Co., IL. so feel they definitely knew one another and most likely "some" relation to one another, but how?????? In a bio. on Jonathan Spencer (b. 1814) it said his grandgather had one daughter and 20 son's, so this tells me he was Jonathan Spencer who married (1) Ruth Mudge and (2) Martha Keech. While looking over the Rexford/Raxford material I have collected the name Cynthia, d/o Thomas Rexford and Silva Everett jumped up at me, and I thought have I been all this time tracing the Spencer's down when I should have been looking more closely at the Rexford's as a maiden name for my Jacob Collin's wife. Ironically enough, Jacob & Cynthia's son Oliver whom I descend from named a son THOMAS EVERETT Collins. I feel like I am so close but so far away. If you would happen to know anything about Thomas & Silva's daughter Cynthis, I would be most grateful.
