Is Abigail Bellows the dau of James Bellows

+1 vote
Rodrick H Burnham in his book has Abigail Bellows b estimated at Abt. 1788 as the dau of James Bellows b Abt. 1756 Long Island, New York, USA and Tryphena Chandler b 11 Nov 1758 Ashford, Windham, Connecticut, USA.  Others say she is the dau of John Bellus with no further information.

My research shows that it is very likely James Bellows, and Daniel Chandler met at the battle for Westchester, NY during the Rev War.  Both were there.  James Bellows married Daniel Chandlers daughter Tryphena.  James and Tryphena are buried in Safford Cemetery,  Fairfax, Franklin, VT, USA

George Majors Sr was in the Rev War first as a Hessian who was wounded at the Battle of Ticonderoga in NYand cared for by a Colonial Family.  He later served on the side of the Colonials at the Battle for Bennington in VT. From there he relocated to Arlington, VT then to Sunderland, VT then to Essex, VT then to Fairfax, VT where he lived for more than 30 years.

The Bellows Farmhouse is of wood and brick, and well kept, the Majors farmhouse is of stone, and in good shape, and is a fence neighbor just south of the Bellows farm.  I have been to both.

George Majors Jr married Abigail Bellows---George and Abigail were married 30 Dec 1813 in Underhill, Chittendon, VT, USA by Justice of the Pease Caleb Sheldon placed in record at Undehill 8 March 1814.

No proof of Abigail's relationship to James Bellows and Tryphena Chandler.  Circumstance say it is probable.

I found some of your information by putting in Tryphena in the search field, it is on page 453 of the Bellows Genealogy. 

Bellus is the old spelling of Bellows, but you probably know that.
