Do you still have the ROOT documentation?

I am seeking siblings and ancestors of Jeriel ROOT.

Jeriel was born 31 Dec 1780 in Conventry, CT

Married 16 Sep 1801 in Conventry, CT to Sarah Coleman who was born 17 Jun 1783 in Conventry, CT

Jeriel was a Pastor at an unnamed Baptist Church in Delaware County, NY.

In the Cooperstown Federalist newspaper on 3-9-1811 he was appointed as a Justice of the Peace.

Jeriel ensigned on June 13, 1808 and served for the Delaware County militia under brigadier general ERASTUS ROOT, esquire.

Jeirel and Sarah left Delaware County in 1817 for Ross County, Ohio.
