I asked about Lemuel’s middle name because the letter V seems unusual and may provide a clue to his ancestry.
I purchased the Hitt book from Maurice Hitt several years ago and, in 2011, I donated it to the Steele Library, Elmira. Unfortunately, I did not begin my Roe family research until early 2012 so I may have missed some clues in that book. My 4th great-grandparents are William Holliday and Catherine HITT Holliday. They are buried in the old Downsville Cemetery.
I have read some of the posts by Russ Miller and he seemed to have a research interest in Polly ROE Ellett, wife of Samuel Ellett. Perhaps he believed Emeline ELLETT Miller (1858-1939) was the daughter of Polly and Samuel. In one post, he theorized that Polly ROE Ellett may have been a sister of Nathaniel Roe (1801-aft1879), whom resided near Polly, in Davenport. Russ Miller noted that Nathaniel’s family and Polly’s family both had daughters named Lydia and Emeline.
My 5th great-grandparents were Cornelius Mosher (1760-1825) and Rosanna ROE Mosher (bc1764-1848). In the 1800 Federal census of Coeymans, Albany Co., New York, Cornelius Mosher is enumerated next to five Row (Roe) males who are of the same age as my Rosanna. I believe they are related to her, perhaps, her brothers. That Roe family group migrated to Schoharie and Delaware counties; later, to Otsego and Chenango counties of New York.
I have been trying to stitch together that Roe family with the goal of identifying the parents of my Rosanna ROE Mosher (bc1764-1848), hence, my interest in Polly ROE Ellett’s ancestry. Polly may have been a daughter of Joshua Roe (bc1764-aft1839) who was enumerated in Coeymans, 1800.
Thanks for your help.
