Hello Larry,
The dates of birth for the Parmelee children range from Rufus 28 Dec 1792, to Polly Ann 15 May 1807. I have been successful in locating all of them with their wives in mid 1800's census data. Nathaniel and his family first appear in Newtown in 1800, with appropriate tallies.

With due respect for "Newtown's History and Historian, Ezra Levan Johnson",
Nathaniel b. 1694, while I'm sure he was a remarkable man, could hardly have fathered children born 100 years later.

The person from whom I got my information gave me the descent of Olive as Stephen (1669) and Elizabeth Baldwin;
Stephen (1714) and (2)Hannah Touc(s)ey, (1) Elizabeth Sharp d.1754;
Nathaniel (1761) and Althea Whitmore;
Olive (1794); my ggg gm.

He also gave me death dates for Nathaniel (1834) and Althea (1837) with burials in Huntington Cemetery, Newtown.

My questions seem still to be with the mysterious Althea Whitmore.
I continue to wonder if Althea (1761) as I have been given, is related in some way to James Whitmore, also in 1800 Newtown census. Althea is not a common name, and another Althea Whitmore, (m. Rev. Joseph Lamson) was daughter of Rev. James, and sister of James and Timothy, both staunch Loyalists who migrated to Canada following the Revolution. The name Althea is carried on in that family. James, the Loyalist, had a son James who would be the correct age for the one found in the 1800 Newtown census. While information on other children of Loyalist James is available, I've been able to find little on this son James, and nothing that confirms that he went to Canada with the others in 1783. Thanks very much for your reply. I am grateful for your help and appreciate your checking church records.
Kate
