Jonathan's father, Jonathan (1737) was in the 1790 census in Rockland NY with 6 children, too many and too old for OUR Jonathan (1767) at that age. Even though Jonathan (1767) was 23, we can't find him in a census that year. He is always elusive , perhaps he was a craftsman or a laborer because we can never find land or tax records. Our Jonathan showed up in 1800 Walton, Delaware Co, NY with 7 household members. His father is listed, also in the same census. And Our Jonathan's brother, Alpheus is in Middleton, NY (near Walton and Hancock at that time.) Patience is (by logical conclusion as to number of children and ages) with her family in 1790 (John and Patience Gilson) in Delaware Co, NY. The Gilson Genealogist I contacted stated that Patience Gilson, in her family tree, was listed as married to a Bascom, but she didn't have which one in her research. I assume they got married there in New York soon after the census. In 1810, Patience Bascom is a widow in Conewango Township, Warren PA. Family history states that Jonathan died somewhere in western PA. We have no marriage or death records. Patience then went on to Columbia, Hamilton Co. Ohio in 1812 or 13, as far as we can discern, never remarried. We lost her after 1834. Through church records, etc. we are guessing that her children are (circumstantial evidence since they are always together):
We've been after proof, but every thing is circumstantial and logical because of names, times, etc.
Which one of Silas's children is your ancestor? I have pictures of 4 of them and am getting a pretty complete record done on them. My GGrandfather was Isaac Reece Bascom. Silas lived with his son, Sylvester, until Sylvester went to IL, then supposedly went back down south to see relatives and died in 1882. We have never found him. His wife, Charlotte, is buried not too far from where I in live in Round Lake cemetery. Let me know if I can be of any more help to you! I work with Brad Bascom who is our family genealogist and he would also be interested in your lineage. From my research, I would say New York is definitely where he was born. Susie
