I am planning a trip to Orleans County the last week in April. Can someone
advise me on how to figure out where my ancestors lived in various towns
just by looking at the census or do I need to go to the Town Clerk of each
town and check something there? I have no idea where to begin. I will be
researching the Capwills/Capwells and the Canfields.
Hi Maureen. I have to ask you... Is there a Betsey CANFIELD in your line?
In my notes I have an ancestral aunt, Sarah Elizabeth VanBUREN, who married
a Canfield W. COLE from that area about 25 Dec 1859. His parents were
Timothy COLE and Betsey CANFIELD. I am not related to the CANFIELD name, so
I do not have any further info on Betsey. If you are related, it would
really help me to know where this family was about 1840ish. I have a Civil
War pension reference, 1850 and 1860 census records. Thanks.
