Re: Elisha Churchill circa 1800 New York

Bruce, amazing! I thought this Elisha had died. "Churchill Family in America" (CFA) lists him as the third child and his sister Lydia as fourth, and Lydia and the two older brothers appear in the 1790 Connecticut census whereas Elisha does not. Obviously CFA got the children's order wrong.

I notice two minor points that I mention only in case they somehow have some relevance to your interests. CFA says that Nathaniel (Elisha's brother) settled in Genesee County and in 1850 was living in Stafford in that county. Probably he was living close to the border, as Stafford and East Bethany adjoin. Also, while the East Bethany cemetery shows his son George as George L, CFA lists this son as George W.

What you've discovered makes perfectly good sense, because all but one of the other Churchills who settled in Bethany or East Bethany were close relatives of Elisha. Genealogy is just full of surprises!
