Dear Margie:
Good luck with your search!
In my earlier message I forgot to mention that I checked my records and did find Isaac Chauncy listed in the 1790 Federal Census. (He's listed in the census index under "Isaac Channey" but a check of the original record shows the name was "Chauncy".) He and his family lived in Buckland Town, Connecticutt: 1 free white male 16 yrs and over; 2 free white males under 16; and 4 white females. So in addition to Isaac, Jerusha and Pauline, there appear to have been 2 sons and 2 other daughters (unless an older female relative lived with them). The 1788 financial record I mentioned previously identifies Isaac as "of Ashfield, Massachusetts." Isaac and his family were living in Onondaga County, NY, in 1800. Possibly he is the "J. Chancy" [J for I is an often misreading by inexperienced indexers] in the 1810 census. However, the number of young children in the listing makes this seem less likely.
Just some thoughts,
