I need more eyes on this and additional information, context. Peg Simmons attached "DavidElmerBeekman3" to David Elmer-Elmore, Thaddeus Elmore and Elizabeth Waldo. I believe the beginning of the page and the following page may shed light on the matter. The next page probably lists the rest of David's children.

...Smith of Sharon and Smith sued him in the May court of 1787 in Dutchess County. Uriah Gregory(6) and Abraham Palmer were witnesses to the note which was dated at Sharon, CT. Justus Gregory sued David Elmore in 1787. [CP 5 January 1787] David Elmore was elected an Overseer of the Highways in Beekman 4 April 1786. [SBP 1:222]
 

The Country Journal and Poughkeepsie Advertiser of 27 Dec. 1786 carried the following notice:
"Sheriff's Sale"
BY virtue of an Execution to me directed. I shall expose to public sale on the premises on Saturday, the 6th day of January next, the real and personal estate of David Elmore, of Beekman's Precinct. Herman Hoffman, Sheriff."


David Elmore is alleged to have died in Beekman in 1789 but there are no local records of his death or burial.
Children:

i. ?Thaddeus. b. 12 March 1752. Elizabeth Waldo(7) married Thaddeus Elmore of Sharon, son of David Elmore.(8) He died 25 Aug. 1807 at Canaan, Columbia County, NY. Thaddues Elmore...

------------------------------------
6. He was brother to Stephen Gregory who marrried Mary, b. 3 June 1759, probably dau. of David and Jemima (Curtis) Elmore. Justus Gregory was another brother.
7. She was probably of the Pawling Waldo family but not yet placed.
8.HT 27 Aug. 1955 #7910.


I've read this numerous times and am still puzzled. Is there more than one David Elmore?

27 Dec. 1786:
Specifically, the Sheriff's Sale. He's selling the estate of David Elmore. You generally have to die to have an estate, although there may be some archaic meaning to it. I am wondering if estate in this case is a legal term.

1787:
Justus Gregory sued David Elmore

1789:
David Elmore is alleged to have died in Beekman

Maybe we need to read the sources which Frank J. Doherty attached.

Regards,

Robert S. Elmore
