My Gifford have been found in the 1850 Federal Census for Town of Adams,Jefferson county,New York. They are
Giddeon age 63, wife Ruth age 59, son Denison age 25
Merritt age 32, wife Mary Ann Spink age 23, At the time they had two boys Hirem and Robert E.
William W ( also known as Willard W) age 24, wife Jane L Spink age 26, and twin boys Edgar W and Edward W Age, I year.
I know that the family stayed around Adams until between
1868( when Jane L died )and 1870. At that time all or some of the family moved to Illinois , were William(Willard) was married for the 2nd time, and then he moved to Lyon county, Minnesota,
Does anyone reconize any of these names. I have not been able to connect William(Willard) to Giddeon other than possable Father. It seems that the Town of Adams has had a few fires and not to many records remain.
Thanks for any help you might be able to give.
