Does anyone have information on the parents of Celestia SPENCER?
Celestia SPENCER (b. 1817 or 1818, prob. Columbia CO, NY;
d. 1880, prob. East Chatham, NY)
m (1) Franklin H. CROWTER (1815-1848)
ch Robert H. CROWTER (1843-1857)
m (2) Egbert Selah BARRETT (1818-188?)
ch Celestia Ann BARRETT (1852-1937)
m (1) Gilbert Ezra CADY (1841-1879)
m (2) Ezra Cady WHITE (1860-1933)
ch Charles Ezra BARRETT (b. 1854)
In the 1855 NY census Celestia SPENCER (BARRETT) said she was a
life-long resident of Columbia County, and in the 1880 US census she
said that both of her parents were born in the state of NY. I think
she is descended from one of the Spencertown Spencers, but have not
been able to find a connection. The CROWTERs (her first husband's
family) and John HARMON of Austerlitz may have lived nearby.
Any information would be appreciated.
