Trying to learn the names of all of the children of Moses GRIFFITH of Lee [a.k.a. "Western"] Oneida Co. NY.
Also trying to find out when he and his possible wife Sarah (RUSSELL) died. They do not seem to have headstones in Oneida Co., but prob. died there.
Perhaps land records might give some clues.
Moses GRIFFITH was born estim. 1755. He died prob. aft.1830.
His wife may have been Sarah RUSSELL( b. abt. 1765 maybe Johnston RI).
Moses GRIFFITH, in 1800, lived in Western(twp), Oneida Co. NY. That same Moses GRIFFITH seems to be enum. in 1820 and 1830 in Lee (twp) [created from Western (twp)]; but in 1830, no female of an age for his wife, is shown, therefore Sarah(?) may have been deceased by then.
In 1820 census, living with Moses GRIFFITH, there are also two males b. btw.1804/1810,
and 1 fem. 1810/1820. These could be additional ch. of Sarah(?), or possibly her grandchildren.
By 1830, the only ones living with Moses are a male b.c1805 and a fem. b.c1805
(prob. being Wm.G. and his wife Harriet Searles, recently married).
Moses GRIFFITH [ and Sarah (RUSSELL)?], prob. had the following children
(daus. based on 1800 census):

i. dau. GRIFFITH was born estimated 1787 in perhaps N.H..

ii. dau. GRIFFITH was born estimated 1791 in perhaps N.H..

iii. dau. GRIFFITH was born estimated 1794 in perhaps N.H..

iv. son GRIFFITH was born about 1804 ( based on household members in 1820 census; and if
indeed son, he prob. would have been b. in Lee, Oneida Co. NY).

v. William G. GRIFFITH was born about 1806 in prob. Lee ("Western") twp. Oneida Co. NY; married Harriet SEARLE or SEARLES . Harriet was born about 1807, (dau. of Saul SEARLE/SEARLES) [she had a brother Lyman SEARLES, and a sister Sarah WILLSON (wife of Fowler WILLSON).]
In 1840, William G. GRIFFITH seems to be living on the same property which Moses GRIFFITH was living on in 1830 (adjacent to Saul "SEARL", Wm.'s father-in-law).
In 1850, still in Lee (adjacent to his sister-in-law Sarah WILLSON).
By 1858, Wm. G. may have lived in Hillsdale Co. MI, when his daus. Mary and Huldah mar. there.
Wm.'s and Harriet's residence after that, or place of death, not yet known. Some of their ch. lived in Steuben Co. IN for a while; but most eventually returned back to Rome NY.
The known ch. of Wm. G. and Harriet GRIFFITH: [prob. all b. Lee, Oneida, NY]
Mary 1831 NY; d.abt.1911 Rome NY; m: David CALBETZER. [ch: Wm. and Mary].
David 1833 NY; d.1923 Buffalo NY; m: Rosina (MARCHAND).
Annis 1835 NY; d.1906 Rome NY; unmar.
Russell 1836 Lee NY; d.1922 Rome NY; m: Catherine (LeSUER); [no ch.].
?son b.abt.1838?[based on household members in 1840]
Hulda c1841 NY; d.aft1916 [lived Sacr.,Cal.] m: Jerius LYTLE; Harris CAPWELL; [no ch.].
William Edward 1849 NY; d.aft.1910; unmar.?.
[David GRIFFITH (1833-1923) was prob. the only one with living descendants of Wm.'s branch aft.1923.]
