Let me add one more piece to all of this:

Russell RUSCOE married Nancy CORBIN. Nancy was the daughter of Asa CORBIN and Mercy HARLOW. Asa was a cousin of Elkanah CORBIN and Mercy was the sister to Elkanah's wife,
Hannah HARLOW.

So, Nancy CORBIN and Ira CORBIN were cousins. I suspect their RUSCOE spouses were also cousins but don't yet have definitive proof.

Asa and Elkanah were both from Woodstock, Windham County, Connecticut. The HARLOW sisters were from Plymouth, Mass.

Asa CORBIN took his family to Williamstown, in western Mass after the Rev.War. Daughter Nancy then moved with husband Russel Ruscoe up into New York.

By the way, Nancy moved to Illinois with her son David and is buried there. Amazing how they got around back then.

Anyway, bit by bit we'll get these families straightened out!
