Re: Joseph Lizotte + Sophia - Chazy NY

In Reply to: Joseph Lizotte + Sophia - Chazy NY by Myrle Morgan of 541

Hi Myrle,
Joseph, son of Louis A. Lezott & Mary Polly Monty. was born 1795 in Chazy NY. Joseph married Sophia Belanger about 1819 In NY. I do not know Sophia's birth date. I received this information from the library at the Northern NY Canadian-American Geneology Society in Keeseville NY.

I also found Joseph and Sophia in the 1870 US Census living in Altona NY. Joseph was 79 and Sophia was 78.
Someone else found Joseph and Sophia in the 1860 Census living in Chazy(includes the Village of Coppersville) and Joseph was 75 and Sophia 65. The years of age for Joseph between his birth year and the years of the census don't add up right but as someone has said it was not uncommon for elderly people to not really know their ages or the information was provided to the census taker by someone else. I hope this information is of some help to you.
