    Genealogy 1645 - 1908
    Thomas Alvord went with his father to Middletown, Coll., about 1725. As his wife was of Guilford,
    Conn., and his first child was baptized at Durham, Conn., it would appear that he lived near the
    Durham-Guilford border. In Litchfield, Conn., deeds he is called ot Guilford in 1734, and of
    Litchfield in 1737. He returned to Meddletown where he renewed his covenant with the First
    Church, Mar. 4, 1739. His wife brought her letter from the Litchfield church to the Middletown
    church Jan. 6, 1740. In Nov. 1743 Thomas Alvord is named as one of the original members of the
    parish of Middlefield. His death, or burial, is recorded on the Middletown church records as follows:
    "Buried, Mar. 16, 1786. Thomas Alvordd, aged 76, paralytical, asthmatical, dropsical, cacexy."

    ------------

    Jonathan Alvord sellted in that part of Middletown know as Eas Hampton and possibly lived also
    in what is now Middlefield.
    In Oct., 1748, he was commissioned Lieut. of the 17th Co., 6th Reg. of Conn., and was Captain in
    the same regiment and comany June, 1753.
    In 1770 he removed to Winchester, Conn, and lived in a house long since take down, near where
    the dugway road turns west to Winchester Center. There he lived uuntil he sold to Joshua Knapp in 1773.
    His famr of thirty acres in East Hampton, Conn., he sold Jan. 18, 1770, before his removal to
    Winchester to Nehemiah Gates for 120 pounds lawful money.

    Strong #5328 and Mehitable King #5329). Aaron died ___ __ 1767, Torrington, Litchfield Co.,
    Connecticut. From Alvord Genealogy 1645 - 1908
    Aaron Alvord was farmer in Durham, Conn., until 1745 when he sold his farm and moved to
    Torrington, Conn,. where he and his wife were members of the church in 1760.
    Administration on th estate of Aaron Alvord was granted Mar. 3, 1767. (Litchfield Prob. Rec.)
    The history of Goshen, Conn., states that William Alvord was the first miller in town. The mill
    was locate ten rods nort of the road leading from East St. to Middle St. over Pie Hill. It also states
    that William Alvord's daughter married Chauncey Beach. It is therefore probably that the above
    reference is to Aaorn Alvord.

    Oct. 15, 1747 Elisha Alvord of Durham, Conn., purchased land in Fairfield, Conn., of Lockwood
    Gorham of Fairfield. He we admitted to Greenfield Church Aug. 13, 1749, by certificate from Rev.
    Chauncey of Durham. He was appointed Ensigh in 4th Reg. May, 1761, Lieut. Oct., 1765, Capt.,

    Mrs. Mary, wife of Elisha Alvord, was recommended to the church at Greenfield Hill from Rev.
    Mr. Dickinson's churce in Norwalk, Conn., Apr. 16, 1758.
    In the Durham Cemetery there is a gravestone at the grave of "Abigail, wife of Elisha Alvord"
    who died in 1743. It is believed that this is the oldest Alvord tombstone in America.

    is this my Elisha? "Apr. 12 1761, Saul Alvord of Northampton, in consideration of one hundred and sixty-three
    pounds, lawful money, paid by Elisha Alvord," conveyed "a certain small piece of land in
    Northampton situated near the Meeting House in said town, being in quantity about seventy-three
    rods, with the Dwelling House, Shop, and all the other buildings of every sort, standing thereon; the
    said piece of land lies circumscribed by the line as is herein after mentioned. That is to say; the first
    line begins at a young button wood tree standing in the corner of sd. Tract, and runs East forty-three
    degrees North four rods and one link from ye end of that line; the next line runs North ten degrees,
    thirty minutes East, nine rods and twenty-two links; and from the end of that line, etc., etc."
    (This is the land that Elisha Alvord sold to sundry persons, upon which the court house now stands.)"Apr. 12 1761, Saul Alvord of Northampton, in consideration of one hundred and sixty-three

    226. Elisha Alvord #11446 (93.Asahel4, 26.Thomas3, 5.Thomas2, 1.Alexander1) b. May 16 1748, prob. Colchester, CT. SOURCE: Alford Genealogy 1648-1908, S.M. Alvord This is a family about which the compilers of the 1908 book were uncertain. On page 60 in the fourth generation they listed Elisha but with no children or further information. On page 103 he is listed with birth data and the following note."No effort was spared to secure data regarding Elisha Alvord. While no positive evidence can be brought forward to fully establish it, it seems reasonable to believe that he was the father of Elisha Alvord b. Dec. 4, 1778, (see appendix [supplement below]) who married Mary Cowles. Reasons for so believing are as follows: 1st, the transmission of the name Elisha for two generations; 2nd, Russell Alvord, son of Elisha and Molly, used to say that his father was a cousin of the Alvords of the Salt Works, Syracuse; 3rd, Elisha and Molly Alvord lived at Canaan (New Lebanon), N.Y., a brother, William Alvord, lived in Livingston Co., N.Y. and nephews of Elisha, Sr., lived at one time
    in Hancock, Mass., (formerly a part of Canaan, N.Y., and also in Livingston Co., N.Y., which would indicate a possible connection."
    In the Supplementary Data on page 681 they listed him and his children with the notation below. We are placing him here in what might be his normal position in the genealogy to make it easier to follow and relate his descendants. Be cautioned that he may not belong here. The "brothers" William and John mentioned below are not in the genealogy."No effort was spared to discover the parentage of the above Elisha Alvord. From the facts gathered,--chiefly from his grandson, Elmus F. Alvord--it seems reasonable to believe that he was the son of Elisha Alvord (No. 148, born probably at Colchester, Conn., May 16, 1748), whom see.
    Elisha Alvord, the head of the above family, had brothers, William and John, of whom the latter was probably brought up by some one outside the family, since his parents died when he was very young. It is possible that he is the John Alvord who died at Brookfield, N.Y., about 1815. (Surrogate Rec.). Russell Alvord when about fifteen years old went with his uncle William Alvord,
    from Livingston County, N.Y., to Geauga County, O., to drive his stock. William settled in Geauga
    Co., O., and had family, but nothing further regarding him could be learned. Russell Alvord always
    claimed that the Alvords of the Syracuse Salt Works were his cousins. U.S. Census of 1800 gives
    the following: Elisha Olverd, head of family at Canaan, N.Y. In the family were, 1 male 10-16
    years old, 1 male 16-26, 1 female under 10, 1 female 16-26.
    The will of Asa Cowles of New Lebanon, N.Y., Oct. 1837, mentions daughters; Molly Alvord,
    deceased, Lucy Hand and Tirzah Carpenter. The Hand family was prominent at New Lebanon,
    N.Y."

    Elihu died Jul 13 1863, Davenport, Scott County, Iowa. From Alvord Genealogy 1645-1908
    An old record dated Apr. 10, 1818, mentions "Elihu Alvord formerly of Fairfield, Conn., nowof
    Black Rock, N.Y." Mr. Fish, grandson of Elihu Alvord writes that hsi grandfather lived for a few
    yeard after leaving Conn. at Albay, N.Y., and was employed in the shipyards there. He removed
    from Ellicottville, N.Y., to Scot Co., Ia., in 1837 settling on a claim 18 miles north of Davenport. He
    was the oldest member of the Scott Co. Pioneer Ass. and was probably the oldest settler in the
    county. In 1857 when Mr. Alvord was eighty-one years old he visited his old hoe in Conn. By
    occupation he was a cabinet maker and had considerable mechanical genius, so that he was wont to
    spend hours at a time endeavoring the perfect perpetual motion. He was fond of horticulture, a great
    reader and highly esteemed by all who knew him. His home, during the last yeard of his life was
    with his daughter Mary Ann Fish, at Walnut Grove, Ia. When eighty-eight years old he walked from
    Walnut Grove, Ia., to Davenport, a distance of 18 iles, to visit his son C.C. Alvord. It was in July
    and the sun was very hot. The next day he was taken with an attack of cholera morbus from which
    he died on the second morning after leaving home. At the organization of St. John's Episcopal
    Church at Ellicottville, N.Y., Elihu Alvord was chosen vestryman, Sept., 1829.
    Property was deeded to Elihu Alvord of Milton, Saratoga Co., N.Y., in 1806; to Elihu Alvord of
    Marcellus, N.y., in 1810; from Elihu Alvord and wife of Cayuga Co., N.Y., in 1812, of Ellicottville,
    N.Y., in 1833.
    Mrs. Alvord was a member of the Episcopal Church and in her youth highly regarded in society.

    some rootsweb listings place avids brother, Elisha in New Lebanon NY. New Lebanon was formed from the Town of Canaan (named for Canaan, CT) in 1818. Prior to that it was King's District Canaan, Columbia County, New York.

    The Albany-Boston stagecoach route went through Canaan, NY. 1785 the year a stagecoach connection was established between New York City and Albany. many olmstedswere original settlers of Cannan with large amountsof land " Betsy Olmsted, a descendant of one of the original settlers of Canaan who also owned vast tracts of land to the south and west of the current house.". .New Lebanon was the main spiritual home of the Shakers.

    Not far from Chatham, NY. Although some listings have Alvord kids born in Kent, census listings have Sarah born in NY

    One of New Lebanon’s first settlers was “Lucky” James Hitchcock. He took a dip in the town’s warm springs in 1756. The warm springs were famous for many years. People came to New Lebanon to “take the waters” and cure their illnesses.


    The warm spring is at the top of Spring Hill Road in Lebanon Springs. Indians discovered the warm springs and brought the first white man, Lt. James Hitchcock, to the springs to bathe in the healing waters in 1756.

    “Lucky” James Hitchcock was one of New Lebanon’s first settlers.


    The Indian’s Blessing Fountain, located on Route 22 in Lebanon Springs, was erected by the Lebanon Valley Garden Club in 1940, to bring the curative waters from the Warm Spring for the benefit of mankind.

    There were two major thoroughfares. One was the Boston to Albany stage route, which basically followed the path of the Wyomanock Creek. The other was the Harlem Extension Railroad, which paralleled the wagon road to Lebanon Springs, then turned north into Rensselaer County. There were railway stations in West Lebanon, New Lebanon, and Lebanon Springs, with good shipping facilities at each. The presence of flying cinders caused the Clark Bakery in Lebanon Springs to be the first in the country to ship wrapped bread, with each loaf being wrapped separately in brown paper.
    Columbia Hall in Lebanon Springs opened in 1794, thirty-eight years after Hitchcock’s first visit. It stood 300 feet above the valley. At full capacity it could service 400 guests. The historic register from 1820-1830 was signed by visitors including the Marquis de Lafayette, Henry Longfellow, Daniel Webster, and John Quincy Adams. It closed in 1900, its demise the result of social changes after the Civil War.
    There were several manufacturing companies which grew with the town. Sawmills and gristmills were found in most areas of town in the mid to late 1700s. They were initially water-powered. Cornmeal from the Elm Tree Mill in New Lebanon Center was particularly favored by Teddy Roosevelt.
    The most important manufacturing company in town was the Tilden Pharmaceutical Company, founded in 1824 by E. Gilbert (who learned the extracting trade from the Shakers) and Elam Tilden (a successful businessman). It was located on the Boston-Albany Turnpike (now Route 20). The plant began as an extract pharmacy
    IV – 2
    and progressed to producing standard medicinal products. Tilden’s sons succeeded him until 1884. In 1961 it was sold to Textron Corporation, but the plant closed shortly thereafter.
    The John Kendall & Co. Thermometer Factory was established in 1820 and produced both thermometers and barometers. It was the first company in this country to produce the tools that enabled them to provide consistent measurement of the current temperature.
    Other industries included a woolen mill, about 1806, and a cloth manufacturer. From 1873 –1876 the New Lebanon Glass Works produced 5000 to 6000 green and blue bottles each day.
    Jesse Torrey began the first lending library in the United States in New Lebanon in 1803 on what is now West Street.
    Samuel J. Tilden, son of Elam Tilden, was born in 1814 in New Lebanon. He became governor of New York in 1874. He won the popular vote for the Presidency in 1877, by over 200,000 votes, but lost to Rutherford Hayes in the House of Representatives, where the decision was made by one vote after the Electoral College could not produce a winner. Samuel J. Tilden is buried in the Cemetery of the Evergreens.
    The Shaker movement formed a prominent part of Town history. It began in France in the late 1600s and then became established in England. There they were called the Shaking Quakers because during worship services they would jump, whirl and shout for joy. Ann Lee joined them in 1758. After persecution in England, the sect emigrated to Watervliet, NY in 1774. They came to New Lebanon in 1780 at the request of several townspeople following a religious revival in the town. Mother Ann was expelled from the King’s District (as New Lebanon was still known at that time) in 1783, and she returned to Watervliet, where she died in 1784. Her followers remained, however, and prospered. At its height, New Lebanon was the principal Shaker site in America, the center for eight “families” – one in Massachusetts, five in New Lebanon, and two in Canaan. Each “family” was a separate, self-supporting community of 50 to 80 people, with men and women treated equally. It was a celibate community, with men and women living separately, but in the same house. All who were able worked at one of the community industries, such as seed production, agriculture, furniture making, etc., or supported the community’s daily life by washing or cooking. Children whose parents joined were educated and raised by the “family.” In 1930 the remaining Shakers decided to sell their land and buildings to a boarding school. The last Shaker left New Lebanon in 1947, moving to the Shaker community in Hancock, MA.

    For 160 years, from 1787 to 1947, the Shakers at Mount Lebanon led the largest and most successful utopian communal society in America. From this central community developed the Shakers’ ideals of equality of labor, gender, and race, as well as communal property, freedom and pacifism. From Mount Lebanon also grew the now famous Shaker aesthetic of simplicity, expressed in their objects, furniture, buildings and village planning.

    With over 6,000 acres and 100 buildings, Mount Lebanon Shaker Village was a driving force in the agricultural, industrial, commercial, and institutional activities of its day. The Village was divided into smaller :"Family" groupings (Center, Church, Second, South, East, North, and so on.), each with its own leadership, members, and commercial activities.  As the Shaker community declined in population in the early 20th century, the site was gradually sold to various private owners, including the Darrow School, which still inhabits Mount Lebanon’s Church and Center Families.

    Mount Lebanon also set precedents for commercial and industrial activity. Seed production, patent medicines and chair manufacturing were among the many lucrative industries that supported the community. During Mount Lebanon's most active period, several hundred institutional buildings served the Shakers' domestic, industrial and agricultural needs. However, by the early 1930s, Shaker influence in the area had all but vanished

    The United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing, or Shakers, remain the longest-lived communal society in the United States.The tiniest and most unique of the lesser Shaker communities was Tyringham, Massachusetts.1 At its numerical peak in 1830, it barely and briefly had one hundred members, one third of whom were indentured children.

    Tyringham Shaker village was begun in 1792.Established in the 1780s, Enfield was the only Shaker community established in Connecticut. The Mount Lebanon Shaker Society in New Lebanon, New York, was the largest and most industrious Shaker community from 1785 until 1947, and the spiritual center of Shaker society in the United States.

    was there any connection betweenhomeopathic medecine and the herbalist knowlege of the shakers? Dr. D.M. Bennett started as Shaker move to freethinker and theosophical interests.

    In 1793, a historic Shaker village, one of nineteen scattered from Maine to Kentucky, was established in the town. The Utopian religious sect practiced celibate, communal living, and is today renowned for its simple architecture and furniture. Membership eventually dwindled, however, and the village disbanded. The property has since been redeveloped by the Enfield Correctional Institution, still located on "Shaker Road."

    The populist principle in theology--the claim that the unlearned, even more than the learned, could discern theological truth--often countered traditional theologies. It could sometimes blend with the quite different idea that God continued to provide new truth through immediate revelation to faithful believers or to chosen prophets. From an assertion of private revelation it was easy to argue that the canon of scripture was not closed and that new truths required new canons. In America, this logic of private revelation produced more than one new claim to theological truth.

    The Hicksite Quakers were followers of Elias Hicks (1478-1830), a farmer from Rhode Island who, after a religious experience in 1774

    The Shakers, formally the United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing, followed the teachings of Ann Lee (1736-84). Starting in 1781, Lee preached in New York and throughout New England. "Like the early Quakers, they grounded their faith in the immediate experience of the Spirit. Even more than the Quakers, they derived a theology not only from scripture but also from immediate revelation." Shakers embraced the populist approach, criticizing refined theological argument and learned ministers alike.  Some Shakers also stressed "the dual character of God as Father and Mother," related to an earlier Shaker belief that "the Christ had been manifested in both a male and a female."

    Coming finally to the Mormons, it is clear that the logic of new revelation was sort of in the air. The Mormon revelation as it was delivered through Joseph Smith reflected a populist perspective, as did the preaching of the Quakers and Shakers. Joseph Smith differed from others who announced new revelation in that he produced a sizeable volume of new scripture, the Book of Mormon, rather than simply announcing or preaching new doctrines, practices, or insights following an inner light or the Spirit. But the Mormon experience reflected more than just the populist perspective; it also reflected the religious folk culture of the period.

    The early movement drew many of its adherents from a culture in which the miraculous and the magical were part of the texture of daily life. ... The earliest Mormon converts--people who lived on the margins of evangelical Protestant culture--were already accustomed to the use of seer stones, divining rods, amulets, astrology, healing objects, revelatory dreams and visions, and occult numerology. Despite the scorn of the learned, many of them lived in an enchanted world of esoteric rituals, magical symbols, and occult parchments. This was a folk culture they shared with other populist religious groups ....

    As a short commentary, note that claims of new revelation understandably bring a sharp response from other believers. In the days of early Mormonism, it was Protestant clergy who affirmed a closed canon that attacked Mormonism as too miraculous or magical for comfort. Now it is secular critics that portray Christianity as a whole and the beliefs of any denomination as too supernatural for comfort. They reject any revelation, old or new, and are beginning to ridicule any Christian claim with the same relish that Christian commentators have displayed in criticizing Mormon claims for over a century. Welcome to the 21st century.

    The Alvord clan was involed in a number of interesting endeavors. It appears Nelson Alvord, Sarah's brother, made quite a fortune with his carriages.

    Uncle Elisha?Elisha and Diocletian were from Farmington, CT The first settlers of Salina (Onadoga, NY) came In 1790, and principally located upon the summit of the bluff above the salt springs. Most of them came with the intention of entering Into the manufacture of salt. At first kettles suspended from poles were used exclusively ; but in a short time it was found more convenient to rest the kettles upon a pile of stones. The "works" were afterward covered to protect the manufacturer from the weather. Die first caldron kettle, set in an arch, was used by Jamos Vnn Vleck, in 1793; and in a short time caldrons were exclusively used. Two kettles were afterward used, and additions have bee u made from time to time, until 20 to 104 kettles are now put In a single block. The first salt made nuder a permanent building wai manufactured by Elisha Alvord, as agent of the Federal Company, organized in 1798, and consisting of Asa Danforth, Jedediah Sanger, Daniel Keoler, Thomas Hart, Eheiiezer Butler, and Hesekiah Alcott fm

    commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the Town of Salina, recognizing the importance of this historic milestone and the effect it has on so many throughout our community; and WHEREAS, The earliest settlers of what is now known as the Town of Salina began forming a community in the 1780s and 1790s because of the burgeoning salt industry; and WHEREAS, The first frame house in the Town of Salina was built in by Colonel Jeremiah Gould, who was very prominent in the salt industry along with many other well-known names such as Loomis, Olcott, Danforth, Gaston, Van Vleck, Alvord, Gale, Orman, Bellows, Riley, Gord, O'Blennis, Forger and Gleason; many of these names are still recognized on streets and buildings throughout the area today; and WHEREAS, In 1798, the Village of Salina was formed; it was incorpo rated in 1824, and eventually, became the 1st Ward of the City of Syra cuse; and WHEREAS, In 1808, Elisha Alvord formed the first salt block and laid out the Salt Road which ran from Salina through Cicero to Sackett's Harbor; and WHEREAS, On March 27, 1809, the Town of Salina was incorporated and the first official town meeting was held the following day, March 28th; at this meeting, residents elected Elisha Alvord as the first Town Supervisor, Fisher Curtis as the Town Clerk, and four elected assessors and three commissioners of highways; and WHEREAS, The Erie Canal was completed in 1825, and the Oswego Canal in 1828, both became great assets to the thriving salt industry as they allowed for easier transportation of goods; boat building became an important industry for a short time due to the many wooded areas in the Town of Salina; the completion of these new canals served as gateways to the rest of the state; and WHEREAS, The first paved road in the Town was completed in 1829, and was called Canal Street and is now known as Salina Street;

    J1220: Commemorating the 200th Anniversary of the Town of Salina

    n 1794, Elisha Alvord, then a young man, in company with several others came to Salina to reside. Mr. Alvord was elected the Supervisor of the town of Salina at its first town election. He was the father of Thomas and Cornelius Alvord, now residents of Salina.

    In 1794, Judge Richard Sanger, Mr. Andrews of New Hartford, Thomas Hart of Clinton, Oneida county, Mr. Butler of Pompey, Mr. Keeler of Onondaga, Asa Danforth of Onondaga Hollow and Elisha Alvord of Salina, formed a company called the " Federal Company," for the purpose of manufacturing salt. They put up some of the first six kettle blocks. The company failed in 1801 by inexperience in the business. They had wood merely by cutting it, and sold salt readily at high prices.

    Dioclesian Alvord came here in 1796, and hired 192

     

    part of the " Federal Works " with four kettles. He added two more, and with his six kettles he could manufacture eighteen to twenty bushels of salt per day, which he readily sold for fifty cents per bushel. The pump house was then out in the water, and Mr. Alvord had to take a skiff to reach it. The water was pumped by hand and conveyed in troughs to the reservoir made of hollow logs.

    Notes for Mary Burt:
    E-mail dated 22 June 2001 to Richard R. Wilson from Dr. Joan S. Guilford,
    author of "The Ancestry of Dr. J. P. Guilford" (1990):
    I got [Burt ancestral line] from Reel #18 of the Corbin Collection (all on microfilm and all available for rent from either NEHGS or
    Heritage Quest) for Southampton. Mary Burt's father and mother were Thomas-4 who was born in 1697 and died 29 Nov 1773 at
    Northampton, married to Mercy Phelps. His father was Henry-3 born 20 Aug 1660, died 26 Sep 1736, m. first in 1684 Elizabeth
    Alvord, daughter of Alexander and second, Hannah Denslow, and third, Mary Thayer (these other 2 wives not in Corbin) and Mary was
    the mother of Thomas. Henry's father was David-2, bpt. 18 Oct 1629 at Harberton, England, d. 9 Sep 1690 at Northampton, m. 18 Nov
    1655 at Northampton, Mary Holton and they're in my book. I am not perfectly certain about Henry's other wives so you should do some
    checking. The Corbins didn't know who Mary was.
    Another great source is the Judd manuscripts, especially the unpublished ones which are on microfilm and available at Family History
    Centers (or in Salt LakeCity) as he also specialized in western Mass.

    REFN: 2099
    E-Mail to Richard R. Wilson 21 June 2001 from Joan S. Guilford, author of
    "The Ancestry of Dr. J. P. Guilford, Vol. 1," (1990):
    "As soon as I got your letter (and thanks so much for the laudatory remarks) I contacted Margaret Guilford-Kardell, author of "The
    Guilford Families," a two-volume opus which includes all the Guilfords she could find in England and the U.S. and all the
    descendants. Your Paul Guilford appears on page 240 of Vol. I, but unfortunately, your Eleanor appears as a "miscellaneous"
    Guilford in Vol. II on p. 896 with her husband James Swinnerton.
    "Now, just because she hasn't connected Eleanor, don't despair. I found a record which said "Ellenor Guilford, daughter of Paul
    and Mary, baptized 8 November 1761" at Northfield. I wish I knew where I got it. Perhaps it was in the Corbin records which I
    have read all of, some several times. But in any event, I had some question about this because the marriage record for Paul dates
    their nuptials on 17 June 1761 which, of course, would mean that Eleanor was conceived before marriage. Maybe this is what
    made Mary [Burt, Eleanor's mother] feel so guilty that she had to go off and join the Shakers!
    "The bottom line here is that I think you've got it right [re Eleanor's parents as Paul Guilford and Mary Burt]." "

    ____________________
    From Donald F. Miller, Biography of Mercy Caroline (Loveland) Holderman,
    granddau. of James Swinnerton, http://66.20.139.107/Don/mclh.htm:
    On May 1, 1775, twelve days after the battles of Lexington and Concord, a
    seventeen year old boy named James Swinnerton enlisted in the Continental
    Army in the town of Oakham, Massachusetts. During the war, James
    Swinnerton reenlisted several times, and on October 18, 1776, was wounded
    in the neck and shoulder by a British musket ball fired at him in the
    battle of Pell's Neck on Long Island, New York. Following his injury, he
    was transported to Bedford, Massachusetts, where he recovered in a
    hospital. After his release from the hospital, he again enlisted in the
    army.
    When the war was finally winding down, James Swinnerton married Eleanor
    Guilford in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, on March 2, 1780. By 1800 James
    and Eleanor Swinnerton had moved to Leicester, Vermont, and had seven
    children living (six other children all died shortly after birth). Their
    fourth oldest living daughter, Mercy Swinnerton, was born March 30, 1792,
    probably in Leicaster. During the years following 1800, the family
    evidently spent some time living near Paradox Lake in New York, but by
    July 31, 1806, were clearly living in what was then Franklin County,
    Ohio, near the town of Delaware. On this date, James Swinnerton's oldest
    living son, James Guilford Swinnerton, Jr., was married to Lucy Carpenter
    in Franklin County.
    On March 12, 1810, the Swinnerton family witnessed the marriages of two
    of its daughters in (I believe) Hartford, Ohio. Lucinda Guilford
    Swinnerton married Ira Carpenter, brother of the Lucy Carpenter who
    James, Jr., had married four years earlier, and Mercy Swinnerton married
    a young man who had also grown up in Vermont, Merriness Willet Loveland.
    Merriness and Mercy Loveland established a residence near Delaware, Ohio,
    where Mercy became pregnant with their first child in January of 1811.
    10
    This child was born on October 8, 1811, in Delaware, Ohio, and was named
    Mercy Caroline Loveland after her mother. Tragically, the nineteen year
    old mother lived only thirteen days after the birth of her daughter after
    evidently experiencing complications during childbirth. She is buried in
    the Oak Grove Cemetery
