Samuel is the father of Mariah, who married Byington Root; Olivia "Olive" who
married Urotus Erastus Bardwell; Chapin Calvin (or Calvin Chapin) who married Jane E.
Sample; Frances; Manly Brace; Samuel Dwight who married Mary and Harriet. When Samuel
died in 1847 his wife (per administration paperwork) was Chloe. Chloe is living with the
children in 1850 in Barre, Orleans Co., New York. In 1860, she is living with Chapin and
his family in Green Lake Co., Wisconsin. Because her date and place of birth are right,
and because on Chapin's name, I have always assumed she was Chloe Chapin, daughter of
Jehial & Ursula Bement, who was born 12 Feb 1792.
I have just found a listing of Barre Center Cemetery, which shows Samuel burried next to
his wife Sophia!! She died in 1833, 14 years before Samuel. It looks like all the
children are Sophia's, and Chloe is a 2nd wife.
Does ANYONE know anything about this family??
