Mary and Dorothy Hellums, PA, NY, 1800

I have a Mary HELLUMS that married Jacob Yost Carpenter. She was born in 1800 in PA. I am pretty sure her mother was Dorothy HELLUMS because a cousin of mine has a pitcher that is said to be the Dorothy pitcher and has been handed down to the Dorothy's in the family since Dorothy Hellums. Another family story is that the Hellums were Tories and spent the revolutionary war in Canada. The Carpenters were living in Yates County in New York when their daughter Sarah Carpenter was born in 1836. Mary died there in 1872. I would love to know more about Mary's parents and family. Thanks in advance. Jan, Lake Mary, FL
