      Recorded March 2, 1834 at 2 o?clock P.M. . Sml. Love Clk.
    • According to the Cornwall, Litchfield, CT Vital Records (Barbour) Abiah BIERCE married Lemuel JENNINGS 20 Jan 1773 by Rev. Hezekiah Gold. Recorded children were Benjamin, Mary, Wealthy and Hudson. Lemuel and family were in Cornwall through the 1810 census; by the 1810 census, sons Benjamin and Hudson are in Spencer, Tioga, NY (this area would become Danby, Tompkins, NY by early 1822). Lemuel JENNINGS and family were in Danby (then Tioga), Tompkins, NY by the 1820 census. Starr, page 434 mentions Abiah but cannot place her within the Cornwall families. If her age is indicated correctly in the 1810 census, she was born 1756-1774. The only Abiah that I can find who might fit in age is Abiah BEARSE, b. abt. 1752 to Austin (James/Abiah FORD; James/Experience HOWLAND; Austin) BEARSE and Hannah STETSON of Halifax, MA. Abiah had a brother, Austin BIERCE who died in Cornwall, Litchfield, CT (Ancestry gedcom). This makes her very interesting and promising. Could this Abiah have moved to Cornwall with her brother, Austin and be the Abiah who marries Lemuel JENNINGS in 1773?

      2. Cornwall Vital Records indicate that Capt. Joseph (James/Mary BUMPAS; James/Abiah FORD; James/Experience HOWLAND; Austin) BIERCE and Elizabeth EMMONS had two sons named Erastus; Erastus b. 13 Oct 1776 and Erastus b. 21 Dec 1778. There are no entries to indicate so but it would seem that the first Erastus must have died for them to name another son Erastus; however another gedcom on Ancestry.com indicates that Erastus, b. 13 Oct 1776 resided in Danby, Tioga, NY in 1819. Joseph and Elizabeth had two sons; Joseph b. 8 Jan 1772 and Joseph, b. 25 Sep 1773. An Erastus BIERCE and a Joseph BIERCE appear in the 1820 census for Danby, Tioga, NY. Joseph is no longer in Danby by the 1830 census, however, Erastus is last noted as being in Danby in the 1840 census.

      Erastus BIERCE and Lemuel and Abiah (BIERCE) JENNINGS are in Danby, NY by the 1820 census, as well as a Joseph BIERCE. I suspect but cannot prove that Erastus [and possibly Joseph] BIERCE and Abiah (BIERCE) JENNINGS were related simply because they moved from Cornwall, CT to Danby, NY roughly about the same time, and families did tend to move together. There is also evidence through wills at a later time that the BIERCE and JENNINGS families in Danby were connected through marriage. If Abiah, b. 1752, dau. of Austin and Hannah (STETSON) BIERCE is the Abiah who married Lemuel JENNINGS, she would have been a first cousin of Capt. Joseph BIERCE and a first cousin once removed to Erastus. Any help sorting this out will be greatly appreciated.
