Bob, I reviewed my notes on Benjamin and do not have a definitive, primary record tying him to John. There is strong circumstantial evidence though and here's what I have in my records regarding your Benjamin:

Son of John Schofield and Hannah (Turner) per Hoppin. On pp. 268-269 Hoppin notes “Another son, Benjamin, is mentioned as living at Warwick, Orange County in the 1810 U.S. census, having a wife, one son, and two daughters; later he lived near his uncle, David Schofield, in Pompton Township, Bergen County, New Jersey. Years later he, with his wife Sally, and their children, removed to Strongville, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, as is proved by the deed of sale of their real estate in Bergen (now Passaic) County, New Jersey, recorded on page 23 of Liber U-3 of deeds at Hackensack.. Found in 1810 US NY Census in Warwick. In 1820 it is unclear which he is or if he is in NJ for which no census records survive. In 1830 US OH Census there is a Benjamin Scofield in Middleburgh, Cuyahoga Co., NY – he is age 50-60, wife 40-50, two sons 15-20, one son 10-15, one daughter 15-20, two daughters 5-10. In 1840 US OH Census there is a Benjamin Scofield in Strongsville, Cuyahoga Co., OH – he is age 60-70, wife is 50-60, son 15-20, daughter 15-20. Definitely same ones in 1830 and 1840 but no proof yet tying this Benjamin to the one in Warwick in 1810.
