Sally Cross and Eldad Blackney end up raising a family in Cattaraugus Co NY. A notation
cites they had children: Charles, William, Nathan, Lewis P, Asa, Eldad jr, Belinda,
Caroline, Julia, Sally, Sarah, Esther, Clarissa and Delia. Lewis P is cited as being born
in New Lebanon NY (Columbia Co) May 30 , 1811.
I suspect Sally is the sister of Polly Cross who married Thomas Townsend and also went to
Cattaraugus Co NY. They were sisters of Abigial (Sherwood), Nathaniel, Asa and Zebulon
Cross. Zebulon is my ggg grandfather. they were the children of Nathaniel Cross and
Abigail Wallbridge. Abigail died in Chatham in 1813.
Any information greatly appreciated.
