SCOFIELDs / SCHOFIELDs of Goshen, Orange County, NY - 1800s

Hello, Schofield / Scofield fans:

My G2GM is Christina SCOFIELD/SCHOFIELD (~1826-1880), the 2nd wife of Horace D PARET (1825-1880). They married 29 Aug 1858 and went on to have 2 children who survived to adulthood, Margaret Eliza and Julia Emma. They lived mostly in Middletown, Orange, NY.

Her parents seem to be Henry SCOFIELD/SCHOFIELD and Julia _?_ who lived in the nearby Town of Goshen, Orange, NY area in 1840 and 1850.

I've found them captured in the 1840 and 1850 Censuses as follows:


1840 Census - [Town of?] Goshen, Orange County, NY

Henry SCHOFIELD:

Males ---
1 - <6 yrs
1 - 8 & <10 yrs
1 - 10 & <15 yrs
1 - 20 & <30 yrs
1 - 50 & <60 yrs

Females ---
2 - 5 & <10 yrs
2 - 10 & <15 yrs
1 - 15 & <20 yrs
1 - 40 & <50 yrs


1850 Census - Town of Goshen, Orange County, NY - 15 Nov

Dwelling 245, Family 257 ---

Adam SINSABAUGH, 48 yrs, Male, Farmer, Estate = $3500, Born = PA
Mary E? S., 38? yrs, Female, Born = PA
Wm Sinsabaugh, 15 yrs, Male, Born = PA, Attended school within the year
Jane B. S., 13? yrs, Female, Born = PA, Attened school within the year
Catherine S., 10 yrs, Female, Born = PA, Attened school within the year
George W. S., 5 yrs, Male, Born = PA
Henry S., 1/12 (1 month), Male, Born = PA
--> Christina SCHOFIELD, 24 yrs, Female, Born = PA
--> Julia Scofield, 18 yrs, Female, Born = PA
--> J. W. S., 22 yrs, Male, Laborer, Born = PA [Is this a Sinsabaugh or a Scofield? I lean towards Scofield.]

*** Nearly all the families on this sheet are dittoed for being born in PA. I think that's an error.


1850 Census - Town of Goshen, Orange County, NY - 16 Nov

Dwelling 277, Family 290 ---

Henry SCOFIELD, 59 yrs, Male, Farmer, Estate = $5000, Born = Conn
Julia S., 56 yrs, Female, Born = NY


Dwelling 278, Family 291 ---

John H SCOFIELD, 32 yrs, Male, School Teacher, Born = NY
Ann E. S., 27 yrs, Female, Born = NY
Christiana [Christina?] S., 24 yrs, Female, Born = NY
Joseph K. S., 22 yrs, Farmer, Born = NY
James S., 20 yrs, Farmer, Born = NY
[next page]
July [Julia?] SCOFIELD, 18 yrs, Female, Born = NY
Frances S., 16 yrs, Female, Born = NY
Thomas S. S., 10 yrs, Male, Born = NY


These names appear in Christina SCOFIELD / SCHOFIELD's will, dated 9 Jun 1878, in addition to her children:

Asaph L GREEN = guardian chosen for her children,
Julia GREEN = sister from 1850 Census?
James SCOFIELD = brother from 1850 Census?
Ann Eliza SCOFIELD = sister Ann E. S. from 1850 Census?
John H. SCOFIELD = brother from 1850 Census?


Is anyone aware of a Henry SCOFIELD / SCHOFIELD of Connecticut or any of his family from Goshen, NY?

Thank you.
