Re: Distins of Greene Co., NY

In Reply to: Distins of Greene Co., NY by Lynn Kenney of 80

William Distin, born 30 May 1780 in Wallingford, CT, was a son of Joseph Distin, Sr. and Olive Parker. He came to Lexington, Greene Co., NY, where the 1820 census indicates he was employed in manufacturing. He does not appear in the 1830 Greene Co. census, which squares with your indicated death date of 1829. He had a brother, Joseph Distin, Jr. (1782-1864), who settled nearby to him about 1813, and who moved with his family first to Augusta, Oneida Co., NY, then to Volney, Oswego Co., NY.
