Scovills continued Paul, when I wrote the previous message, I had not done any personal research. Now that I have, I have found that Orrin's sisters, Sarah Bass and Lucy Scovil, were both born in New York - not in Connecticut. I have not verified previous siblings' places of births, so your comment that Lemuel went to Lewis Co., NY, earlier than 1809-1810 may be correct. I shall appreciate any corrections to my data.
Scovill Paul, I descend from Erastus's brother, Hinsdale, born in 1810 in NY. Their sister, Lucy, was born in CT ca 1809. Therefore, it appears that Lemuel and family moved to NY between 1809 and 1810.
Do you have research for this family. I have very little.
