Tim,
The plot thickens. I do know that my Elias Clark enlisted for the Revolutionary War in Orange County New York in 1775. He mustered out there too. The 1850 Federal Census states that his sons Samuel (1785-1871) and Peter (1790-1857) who is my line were born in NJ, but, the grandchildren's biographies give Orange County as their birth location. This confused me until I found out the there was a boundary change between NY and NJ in the late 1700's. I do know that my Hannah was born in 1792. I know of one other Hannah Taylor from Jefferson County born in 1792, but, the actual birth date is different than the dates on my Hannah's Tombstone. A DAR researcher helped me to find that information. I do know from Elias'Revolutionary War Pension papers that Elias was in several battles in NJ and in NY.
Elias born in 1753 and died in 1845 so I hope that I come from both of those gene pools.
I also have land records that put Peter in Bath in Steuben County for a period of time.
Most of the time he was in the Catharine/Veteran area in what is now Schuyler/Chemung County until around 1832 when they migrated west into Medina County Ohio. Thanks for your responses all information is appreciated.
