ATWELL family- Neversink and Rockland
Posted by: Dan Atwell (ID *****6520) Date: September 07, 2003 at 12:30:10

Does anyone have any connections or info on the following ATWELL family?

Richard ATWELL b.abt 1790 in CT -m- Hannah Betsey (-----) b.abt 1790 in CT. They settled in Neversink, Sullivan Co, NY by 1840. Richard and Hannah had at least 4 children:

1.) (son) ATWELL b.bef 1820 in CT (see below)
2.) (daughter) ATWELL b.1820-1825 in CT
3.) Lucy ATWELL b.abt 1827 in CT
4.) Clark ATWELL b.abt 1830 in CT

I don't yet have the name of son #1 above, but from the US census it looks like he had several children who were living with Richard in 1850:

James ATWELL b. abt 1838 in NY
John ATWELL b. abt 1840 in NY
Silah ATWELL b.abt 1844 in NY
Melissa ATWELL b.abt 1846 in NY

There was also another relative living with Richard in the 1860 census:

Alonzo Atwell b.abt 1848 in NY

My hunch is that this Richard ATWELL is the same man who was living in Danbury, Fairfield Co, CT in the 1830 census, and possibly the same man living in Sherman, Fairfield Co, CT in the 1820 census.

Any info appreciated.
