Benjamin LAMPHIER b 9 May 1771,supposedly in RI came to STEUBEN CO. NY about 1810 with his wife Sarah.Her surname is unknown to me.
With them came daughter Louisa b 1796 in CT,
sons Benjamin b 1799 also in CT and Henry believed also to have been born in CT in 1807.A daughter Sarah whose birth place is undetermined also may have been in the original party as well as daugther Mary.
A youger son and daughter Samuel and Rosanna were born in Steuben co.Other than knowing of events that occurred involving all of these people I've never been able to actually
prove the existed.All of the suggested dates for births,deaths,marriages and the like seem to have gone unrecorded and thus undocumented with the exception of a few late deaths.Benjamin,Sr himself has been mixed up and confused with Alpheus Sr. largely because of a remarkable similarity in thier dobs and dods,however I doubt thier paths ever crossed and they are not twin brothers as suggested by some experts.He has often been confused with later generations.He has besides his son Benjamin,a grandson and a great grandson all by the same name .Anyone with any usable information on this family is urged to contact me,hopefully I'll be accessable here for a while.Thanks
Jack Lamphier
