Raynor, Elmira - Wife of Caleb Halsey or Caleb Halsey Vail?
Rider, Penelope - Wife of James Moore and William-2 Downs



Raynor, Elmira - Wife of Caleb Halsey or Caleb Halsey Vail ?

The 1928 Hallock Genealogy (pp 482-3) shows Elmira-7 Raynor, daughter of Mary-5 Hallock md John Raynor (John Hallock-5,4,3,2, William-1), as married to Caleb Halsey and then lists 9 children, all with surnames Halsey.

The 1904 Vail Genealogy (pp 221-3) presents the exact same family as the wife and children of Caleb Halsey VAIL, son of Jasper and Mehitable (Halsey) Vail - all children with surname Vail.

I have no primary sources at hand to verify which is correct. One might expect the more recent (1928 vs 1904) genealogy to be correct, but it also would appear easier to have had a typo in the 1928 Hallock Genealogy than a completely wrong placement of a child, Caleb Halsey Vail, of Jasper and Mehitable (Halsey) Vail.
