You must be very frustrated, after 25 years of searching! According to my Chamberlain research notes here, your 23 Oct 2008 GenForum ChamberLAIN posting provided a somwhat similar message, and also made reference to the following website, containing some Chamberlain data <>. This website contains some additional information for this family, with several references to Chamberlain/lins in Connecticut records, but I don't understand why you suppose there might be any Chamberlain link in Connecticut. This, your latest posting, provides information for the four Perkins children by Euzebia's first marriage to (-?-) Perkins whom she married (c1798). I see you haven't identified this Perkins, only that he died c1814, in Ontario Co., NY (later partly in Monroe Co.).
Perhaps land/legal records in Ontario/Monroe counties might contain information about this family, since they evidently lived there between c1798 & c1814. One needs to pinpoint, if possible, exactly where they lived, and when. Cemetery & probate records in that location might also reveal more - since the four children were underage when Perkins died c1814, there might be adoption, guardianship or other records involved right at that time. You show that she was remarried c1815 to Moses Porter, and that the family remained there in NY State until after 1830 (per census data), and was in Metamora, Lapeer Co., Michigan, by 1835.
When I search the Internet (and the rest of my extensive Chamberlain files here), I find no mention of this Euzebia (also spelled Euzbia, Euzabia, Ezuby, etc. This is a very unusual name - Wikipedia says it is of Polish origin.
I don't see any likely connections with other Chamberlain/lins in Ontario/Monroe Co., NY, nor in Lapeer Co., MI, using census data, though there could be some. I maintain a complete listing of actual census data for all Chamberlains in the U. S. (1790-1880), which is very helpful in conducting such searches. I am somewhat familiar with some of the Chamberlain/lin families in Ontario/Monroe county during this particular period of time, by the way.
I didn't take the time to search the 1800 & 1810 census for the Perkins family in Ontario Co., NY, but this should/could be done, of course, to attempt to identify his first name. Please contact me via Email if you wish to discuss this information in greater detail.
