Biography

Children: Orilla (Lillian) Josephine (May 12 1861 Fort Ann NY), Orrie Ann (Jan 7 1863 Granville NY), Benjamin Harvey (Aug 7 1866 – Aug 25 1868), George Wendell (May 11 – 13 1868), Josie Belle (Isabell, May 25 1869), Leona Belle (May 25 1871 Fort Ann).

Benjamin, it seems, started off as a farmer before moving from Granville NY to Moreau NY before 1880 to work as an agent and then after 1880 across the country to Plano IL where he ended up being a school teacher. He may have had several other jobs as well.
