Thomas Scofield (1765) & Rhoda Bennett, Tioga (Chemung) & possibly Chautauqua NY

I'm trying to trace all of the children of Abraham Bennett & Jerusha Wanzer, so I'm looking for info on their daughter Rhoda who married Thomas Scofield. There is a Thomas Schofield who died 8/16/1831 at 66y 3m (b. 4 or 5/1765) who is buried in Sing Sing (Pioneer) Cemetery in Big Flats, Chemung Co., NY who is probably this Thomas. Thomas married Rhoda Bennett, probably about 1803 in Orange Co., NY, and census records indicate they had at least 6 children. The family is listed on the 1820 census of Elmira, Tioga Co., NY, with 4 children ages 10-16 and 2 children under age 10. I do not know names for any of their children except possibly on named Anna. The family is listed on the 1830 census of Big Flats, Tioga Co, NY - at that time there is a female under age 5 who may be a granddaughter. I'm not sure what happened to Rhoda after Thomas died in 1831. There is a Rhoda Scofield Russell who is buried in Chautauqua Co., NY, but she died in 1851 at age 67 so she is about 10 years younger than I have estimated Rhoda Bennett Scofield to be. She is living in 1850 in Chautauqua Co., NY with husband John and on same page as several Scofield families who could be children from her first marriage. At that time Rhoda is listed as being age 66 and John is only 63, so if it is the same Rhoda she may have been self-conscious about how much older she was than her husband and didn't tell the truth to the census taker. Would appreciate any input to help me sort out this family
