I did add some links to some of your profiles. Could Jacob have had more children?

From what my grandmother has told me, Alpheus was the only child. Everything stopped at Alpheus. We are still unsure if Malony Sylvester is the daughter of Richard Sylvester. Somewhere I have a document that says he is.
Yes, she is the daughter of Richard I put his family tree on his profile. Familysearch.org is a free website.
That's good. I was beginning to worry I had the wrong family. :) I'll have more documents end of month but for now, what you see is what I was given.
Chris, can you look at this link and tell me if it is our Jacob. He is the in the same town that Alpheus was born. I'm bad at census.

Yes, I saw that before and I do think it is him. I added the link to his profile. To bad it does not tell us more but same

part of new york.
How do we determine his age of census? I'm still looking and I have a call into my grandmother.
