Ms. Murray- my name is Ronald Benton. I believe I may be able to shed some, but not all, light on your inquiry into Henry Liddle. I believe that Henry Liddle is the eldest son of William and Phebe Liddle of Williamson, Wayne, New York. In the 1830 and 1840 US Census records, only heads of families are listed with the age ranges of members of their families. You no doubt already know this. In the 1830 US Census of Williamson, Wayne, New York, my Great x3 Grandfather, William Liddle lists 1 male in the 15-19 year old range. That would put this son as being born between 1811 and 1815. This son is not listed in the 1840 US Census- probably married. In the 1850 US Census I then have Henry and his wife Sarah also residing in Williamson, Wayne, New York with Nancy (13yo), Leroy (11yo), Delia (10yo), David (8yo), Sarah (6yo), Samuel (4yo), and William (2yo). As Nancy, the eldest, is 13yo in 1850 Henry and Sarah may have been married around 1836 and would explain why Henry is not on William's 1840 US Census report.
I, too, have no record of them after 1850.
I am currently trying to piece the siblings together. As I said, I believe that Henry is the eldest followed by an unknown sister. She is listed in the 10-14yo range putting her birth between 1816 and 1820. She is also living with her parents (William and Phebe) on the 1840 US Census. The next in line are two more sisters in the 5-9 yo range putting their births between 1821 and 1825. One of them is named Desire also spelled Desiah on some of the later Census reports. Next is a brother and a sister in the under 5 range putting their births between 1826 and 1830. The girl probably passed away as she is not listed on the 1840 US Census but the boy is. Finally, came my line. William Reynolds Liddle was born Jun 1830.
I am grateful for Henry's wife Sarah's maiden name (Cole). That will help me immensely. If I may, do you happen to have the name of her parents?
Please, lets collaborate and perhaps I may be able to shed some more light.
Ronald Benton
