Harold, I think the 1860 census records below are your Durhams. I also think the Asa S. Durham in Ontario Co. in 1850 is yours. In 1860 he is married to Laura B., age 31. There is a 14 year old Phebe in the household. In 1850 Asa S. is living with the John & Phebe Thatcher family. There is a Laura B. Thatcher, age 26, & a Phebe, age 4 in the household. Laura B.`s age does not match up in 1860 but the census is full of age errors or she may have fibbed about her age because of the gap between her age & Asa`s. Let me know if you want the full record for the Thatcher family in 1850.
