Looking for information on the family of Benjamin & Lydia BAILEY.
According to land deeds from 1819, they were living in Dryden.
The 1820 census for Dryden, Tompkins County, New York has two different Benjamin Bailey's listed.
Are these Benjamin's related? If so, how?
My ancestor, Clarissa BAILEY VANMATER, was born in NY circa 1800. She married Gilbert VANMATER of Dryden, Tompkins County, New York circa 1822. Gilbert & Clarissa were still living in Dryden during the 1830 census.
I believe Clarissa may be the daughter of Benjamin & Lydia. However, I'm having a hard time finding proof.
Any help with the Baileys of Dryden would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
