We are looking for ancestors of Roxanna Warner (born 1781 in CT or RI) and her brother, Boudridge (Bowdridge) Warner, born Jefferson County, NY, in 1792. They may have had a brother named Gad.

Roxanna Warner married Jonathan Hill. We believe he was also born in CT or RI. Boudridge Warner married Susannah Hill, born circa 1792-1793 in Jefferson County, NY. Susannah is the sister of Jonathon, and they had one younger brother, named Allen.

Both families eventually emigrated to Mason County, VA (WV) (on rafts and sleighs!) where they lived the rest of their lives.

Can someone in Jefferson County help us make a connection to either family? Could there be a Canadian connection to the Warner family? I have seen a map of Rutland during this time period, which shows much land owned by a "Mrs. Warner."

Thanks for any information you can pass along.
