My husband's family came from the one you describe. Ezra Booth was the father of Isaiah Booth. Isaiah Booth, Sr. a native of Madison County and a pioneer settler of York State. This gentleman was the son of John Booth a Captain in the Revolutionary War. He came from England to Connecticut. He was accompanied by his brother in his journey from his native land, and these two were the progenitors of the Booth family in the U.S.
He made a brilliant military record, survived the vicissitudes of war, and received fatal injuries by being thrown from a horse while fighting on Long Island. It is supposed that he was married in Connecticut, where his son Isaiah was also married, the latter going to Madison County, N.Y. in 1800. He became a successful farm in that State and lived to the good old age of eighty years. His son, Ezra the only child of whom the family have preserved any account I will be glad to send you what material I have which came from Linn County Historical Book.

My husband is Floyd Gershom Booth. We came from Cedar Rapids IA and he is a grandson of one of the twins of Levi Booth (Merle and Beryl) his father was Merle G. Booth. I have three pages of material from the history book if you are interested. Strange enough my husband's grandfather Isaiah (married to Phoebe H. Jones with six children) disappeared while in CA (for his health) leaving from Woodland CA from the home of the F.M. Brown's for Pitt River country in November 1870. I would LOVE to find out what happened to this gentleman that he would leave his family deserted with six children.
