Edward Richmond #937 of New York

My lineage is proved up to Elijah Richmond (#2456) and (#941a).  Elijah may be either the son or the brother of Edward Richmond (#937) per the JBR book (or neither).

937.  EDWARD RICHMOND(6) (Edward 5, Benjamin 4, Edward 3, Edward 2, John 1) was born in Spencertown, N.Y., about 1770, and died in Steuben County, N.Y., December 30, 1856.  He married Huldah (Polly) ______, who died in Herkimer, N.Y., aged forty years.  They resided in Oneida, N.Y.  He served in the Revolutionary War.

2456.  Elijah (7), born in 1778; married Elizabeth Fowler, --
2456a.  James(7), born in 1791; married Sarah Cartwright
2457.  Ebenezer(7), born Dec. 26, 1793; married Louisa Gott
2458.  Edward(7), born March 23, 1796
2459. Peleg(7), born about 1800.
2460. Rebecca(7), married Gershom Truesdale
2461. Ruth, married John Painter of Herkimer County, N.Y.

If Edward was born in 1770, he couldn't be Elijah's (born 1775/1778) father.

I've started to look in deeds in order to trace Edward Richmond and family.
