Does anyone know who this Oliver Walling is? My only references to him are from two deeds in Ontario County NY.

(1) Deed dated 12 Oct 1850 "between Oliver B. Walling and Jerusha C. his wife of the town of Phelps in the County of Ontario" and Harriet Benjamin . Property at issue is in the town of Phelps. Another excerpt: "described premises is hereby conveyed by reason of the said Jerusha C. Walling being an heir at law of Grove Benjamin deceased late of the town of Phelps . . . ."

(2) Deed dated 20 Sept 1849 between Phineas Kent, sheriff of Ontario County, and Benjamin Child of the town of Phelps. Excerpt: "whereas by the Judgment of the Supreme Court of the state of New York the roll whereof was filed in the Office of the Clerk of Ontario County on the twenty eighth day of July A. D. 1849 made in a certain action pending in said Court wherein Esther E. Whitney, William Deeson and Henry W.
