I'm looking for information on the Lorenzo D Billington who lived in Orleans Co, NY from at least 1830 until his death prior to 1865.
I think his father was a J. Billington, probably John. Need info on Lorenzo's father, his wife's maiden name, marriages of children, etc.

Family info:

Lorenzo D (b. 1804 Oneida Co, NY)
Alzina (b. 1805 Rensselaer Co, NY
1. Lorenzo (b. 1837)
2. Emeline (b. 1839)
3. John N (b. 1846)
4. Mary (b. 1847)

Lorenzo Jr may have married and had a daughter named Ella (b. 1859). She was on the 1865 census with Alzina but listed as a daughter which could not have been correct.

There was also a Sobrina Billington (b. 1805) on the 1860 census with Lorenzo in addition to Alzina. This may have been a sister to Lorenzo but is probably more likely a wife to as yet unknown brother.

Lorenzo was in Murray on the 1830 and 1840 census, was in Clarendon on the 1850 census, and in Barre on the 1855 and 1860 census.

I'm a descendant of Lorenzo's son John N Billington (b. 1846). John married Celia Carpenter and moved to VanBuren Co, MI around 1870, he was in Lapeer Co, MI in 1880, and back in VanBuren Co,MI by 1890 at about which time he was divorced by Celia.

Please E-mail me if this looks familiar to anybody.
