Subject: Timeline for Thomas Scofield & Rhoda Benett

Here is where I am so far on trying to figure out where everyone fits on the census records.

The 1800 census of Newtown, Tioga Co., NY lists Thomas Scofield as a head of household. The census page is damaged so the columns for males over age 26 are undreadable, but there is a wife age 26-45 who is Rhoda, and there are 3 males under age 10 (born 1790-1800) and 1 female under 10 (born 1790-1800) so children at this point were:

Son #1 born 1790-1800
Son #2 born 1790-1800
Son #3 born 1790-1800
Daughter #1 born 1790-1800

In 1810 Thomas Scofield is head of household in Elmira, Tioga Co., NY. The family now includes parents who are both age 26-44. Of the 3 sons on the earlier census, 2 are now age 16-25 (born 1785-1794) and one is age 10-15 (born 1795-1800). There are 3 more sons under age 10 (born 1800-1810). The daughter from the earlier census is now age 10-15 (born 1795-1800) with no new daughters under age 10. So combined with info from earlier census the children now are:

Son #1 born 1790-1794
Son #2 born 1790-1794
Son #3 born 1795-1800
Daughter #1 born 1795-1800
Son #4 born 1800-1810
Son #5 born 1800-1810
Son #6 born 1800-1810

In 1820 the family is still in Elmira, Tioga Co., NY. Both parents are now over age 45. The 3 older boys have probably left home, as the 3 remaining are the younger ones who are now age 10-16 (born 1804-1810) and there is a new son under age 10 (born 1810-1820). There is one daughter age 10-16 (born 1804-1810) - as she is not listed on the 1810 census she was probably born soon after the census was taken and is now age 10. There is also another daughter under age 10 in the household (born 1810-1820). So children now are:

Son #1 born 1790-1794
Son #2 born 1790-1794
Son #3 born 1795-1800
Daughter #1 born 1795-1800
Son #4 born 1804-1810
Son #5 born 1804-1810
Son #6 born 1804-1810
Daughter #2 born 1810
Daughter #3 born 1810-1820
Son #7 born 1810-1820

In 1830 the family is in Big Flats, Tioga Co., NY. Thomas is listed as age 60-70, and Rhoda is age 50-60. There is one male age 20-30 (born 1800-1810) who could be any of the 3 born in that time period. The youngest son is age 15-20 (born 1810-1815). There is one daughter left, and she is age 15-20 (born 1810-1815) - not sure if she is the one born in 1810 or the one born 1810-1815. So the children now are:

Son #1 born 1790-1794
Son #2 born 1790-1794
Son #3 born 1795-1800
Daughter #1 born 1795-1800
Son #4 born 1804-1810
Son #5 born 1804-1810
Son #6 born 1804-1810
Daughter #2 born 1810
Daughter #3 born 1810-1815
Son #7 born 1810-1815

Trying to put names in for the numbers now:

For the sons:

James Scofield is age 40-50 on the 1840 census for Franklin Co., Indiana. So born 1790-1800.

Benjamin Scofield is listed as age 57 (b 1793) on the 1850 census, but is age 64 (b. 1796) on the 1860, & age 74 (b 1796) on the 1870, so born 1793-1796 but see info for his brother Abraham

Abraham - you have him listed as born 26 SEP 1801 in Tioga County, New York and died 26 NOV 1844. There is an Abraham Schofield who is buried in Sing Sing (Pioneer) Cemetery, Big Flats, Chemung Co., NY who was born about August or September 1798 and died Nov. 26, 1841, wife Elizabeth & son Thomas also buried with him. Not sure which is correct, but still places Abraham as born 1798-1801. As the census info indicates there was only one son born 1795-1800 and the next ones weren't born until 1804 I think the 1798 one may be the right one. Abraham is probably the son born 1795-1800, which leaves a question for what age Benjamin was. It bothers me that 2 out of 3 census records indicate Benjamin was born in 1796, but that does not fit with the timeline I have if Abraham was born 1798 and there was only one son born 1795-1800. Since there is at least one census record indicating that Benjamin was born 1793 and that fits the timeline better I am going with the 1793 date.

Asahel is age 55 on 1860 census, so born about 1805

Daniel is age 44 on 1850 census, so born about 1806

Lewis is age 35 on the 1850 census, so born about 1815 and he is the youngest son.

John C. - only one I don't have a place for, and only spot left is one of the sons who was born 1804-1810

For the daughters:

Mary (Polly) is listed on your website as born about 1800

Rebecca married Curtis Miles - the wife of Curtis Miles is age 20-30 on 1840 census (born 1810-1820)

Anna I have no info on, so she is the other daughter born 1810-1820.

Either Rebecca or Anna was born in 1810, but I don't know which one.

So I think the children were:

James born 1790-1794
Benjamin born 1793
Abraham born 1798
Polly born 1800
Asahel born 1805
Daniel born 1806
John C. born 1804-1810
Anna born 1810-1815
Rebecca born 1810-1815
Lewis born 1815

Let me know if you have further info or if any other input you may have.

Thanks!

Kari
