Who were the parents of Elizabeth Fowler who married Elijah Richmond? Don't know the answer to that, but would like to, since she is a direct ancestor.
I may have accidentally gotten a little bit closer to identifying Elizabeth's Fowler relatives recently. While searching for more information about Elijah Richmond's father, Edward, in Onondaga County, New York, a deed between Elijah & Elizabeth Richmond and an M. Fowler was found in the deed index.
In the 1810 census, Elijah Richmond was enumerated in Onondaga Co., NY. Nearby Fowlers were Eliphalet, Justus, Luther , Oliver, Thomas and William. Since Elijah & Elizabeth (Fowler) Richmond's eldest son (my ancestor) was named Thomas; perhaps Elizabeth's father was Thomas Fowler. (In 1820 Elijah & Elizabeth Richmond were in Steuben Co., New York. Elijah and his son, Thomas Richmond, were living in Livingston Co., New York, in 1830.)
Thomas Fowler was Moses Fowler's father; was the Onondaga Co. deed between Elizabeth & Elijah Richmond and Moses Fowler? And was Moses Fowler Elizabeth's brother?
To investigate further, I've ordered the following Onondaga Co., NY deed records: (1) Volume "S" (to view the Elijah & Elizabeth (Fowler) Richmond deed; (2) Grantees Index v. 5, N-R (to further research Edward & Elijah Richmond's possible transactions); and (3) Grantor Index, v. 3, F-H (for Fowler deeds). The Grantee index for "Fowler" deeds can be ordered from the FHC at a later date.
