Your information is helping me to fill in another incomplete name on the 1810 Charleston census. I just did a sherlock search and found you.
I grew up near the Ira Corbin homestead. Ira married Sarah Rusco. I began looking up information again to help someone who made a query on the Montgomery Co. Board,
The transcriber had difficulty making out the word Ira. Strangely enough, Ira was identified by an E-mail from New Zealand.
From there I found that Sarah had 3 brothers; Bennet, Rueben, and Russell. You can look this up yourself. It is through usGenWeb then New York, click Montgomery County and then Charleston. Ira is about #70 on the census. Next , I noticed the name of Bennet Rusco about 5 lines up. It is kind of a one of a kind name. I thought it must be Sarah's brother.
Just below the Ira Corbin household is a name close to Rusco or Rosco. The transcriber could not read the first name. When you added the name of Adam born in Charleston in 1809 it makes me even more sure that it must be the household of Rueben Rusco. Perhaps Sarah Lawton's mother is living with them as a widow? There is one more person to be explained.
There is so much conflicting information. Sarah Rusco Corbin's children are listed as being born in Conn. and Otsego, N.Y. in different entries. Yet here is the family in the Charleston census in 1810. They had children born both a year before and a year after the 1810 census out of the area? I think not.
Russell Rusco and Nancy Corbin were not yet married, so it cannot be Russell.
I find both Sarah Boughton and an Esther listed as the wife of Benjamin Rusco. Later a child is named Esther and Boughton is also used as a middle name. Perhaps Esther was a first wife who died?
You state you have more information. Can you help to make our local history here in Charleston more accurate and complete?
