Saw your posting in GenForum Audrey and immediately
wondered if your Ben built the Adsit Cobblestone Farmhouse in
Honeoye Falls, Mendon, NY?
He was age 64 in the 1855 census and had lived there
for 5 years. He came from Columbia County, NY first. His wife Ann
was 63 during the same census, George a son, 40, Mary A 34, Ruth
30 and Rhoda 21. We have not yet been able to place this
particular Benjamin in our ancestry.
The house is presently owned by Craig & Leslie
Carlson at its original location known as One Dixon Woods in
Honeoye Falls, NY. It is in the State and National Registry of
Historic Places as of 1997. They very kindly sent me two photos,
a real estate blurb and an extract from some book. Everything is
in my computer if you would like something by e-mail.
In the Adsit Book by Newman Ward Adsit there is
another Benjamin b: May 5, 1795 m: Deborah Frost b: Oct 19, 1802
in Rensselaer Cty, NY d: at the home of her daughter Emily in
Girard Kansas, no date. They had 12 children of which one was
Mary Jane b: Feb 12, 1824 d: Feb 8, 1877, unmarried. However,
there was no Elizabeth Serena or similar.
Ben Sr. d: at the home of their son Benjamin
(Traverse City, Mich Mar 26, 1867) b: March 5, 1822 m: Ellen
McGee and had Kate b: Aug 13, 1866 at Traverse City m: Elisha
Stewart. Ben and Ellen also had Archibald b: Oct 14, 1868 d: Feb
Do you have the book "Descendants of John Adsit of
Lyme, CT. by Newman Ward Adsit"? It is no longer in print but you
may find a copy at www.Higginsonbooks.com . There was a 168 page
supplement issued in 1988 by Kay Adsit, wife of Earl Adsit who
has since made pencil and pen amendments and issued a fourth
printing in 1997 but sent me his last copy in 1999. He has given
me permission to make photo copies and the price would depend on
a total of interested persons placing a deposit in advance in
order to arrange the most economical cost of production.
Hope this helps.
