I am curious--what proof do you have that RUFUS DeFOREST was the son of EBENEZER DeFOREST (Rev War, lived Westchester Co NY 1790-1835) & MERCY his wife?

I am currently researching the Westchester Co NY DeForest family.

My ancestors SAMUEL BROWN & wife RHEUA/RUHAMA lived next door to EBENEZER DeFOREST and/or his sons JAMES DeFOREST and SAMUEL DeFOREST from 1800 until 1850 in Corlandt and Pound Ridge, Westchester Co NY.

I have long suspected that RHEUA was a daughter of EBENEZER DeFOREST, but have not been able to find any proof.

RHEUA/RUHAMA, wife of SAMUEL BROWN, JAMES DeFOREST & his wife PENIA BROWN, and SAMUEL DeFOREST & his wife ELIZABETH CHAPMAN all named daughters "Harriet", "Clarissa" or both. Not sure why.

In 1850 Pound Ridge, Westchester Co NY census SAMUEL N. DeFOREST age 22 , son of SAMUEL DeFOREST & ELIZABETH CHAPMAN, was living in the household of SAMUEL & RHEUA/RUHAMAH BROWN. I suspect SAMUEL N DeFOREST was RHEUA/RUHAMAH's nephew.

Yours, Betty Tartas
