Trying to find the name of the parents of Sylvester Scofield. Sylvester was born in 1817 in Pound Ridge, Westchester Cty, NY. He married Abigail Ruscoe, who was born in 1825, on February 24, 1850 in Lewisboro. In the 1850 census it shows that a son, William W., was 5 years old (I have to assume that Sylvester had been married before and his wife died.) and a son, Levi W., was born in 1850. Levi is my great-grandfather. In the 1860 census it shows Sylvester and Abigail having William, Levi, Polly, and Stephen living at home. Sometime between 1863 and 1870, Sylvester must have died. Abigail married twice more, once to a Chauncey Raymond and once to Sherman Buttery. It appears as though Sylvester and Abigail had children after the 1860 census: Henry, Sarah, and a Hezekiah R. who was born about 1863.
Abigail is buried at the Lewisboro Cemetery with a stone that has "Scofield" on the top of it. Many of Abigail's family are buried in this cemetery, and Levi Worth, and his family are also buried there.
Any help would be much appreciated. I've been working on this brick wall for many years!
