Have census records for William Preston b abt 1760 and Elijah Preston b 16 April 1799, "Upper Canada" - or Ontario -- together on same page in 1820 Cadiz twp, Harrison Co OH, and 1830 Dohrman twp, Tuscarawas, OH. Elijah's family is himself and wife in 1820. William is over 45, with his wife and six children under 15 (3 boys/ 3 girls). In 1840 Elijah is found on Monroe Twp, Guernsey Co, OH, with eldest son George signing just below him. 1850, same place, finds both again, and in the family of Elijah, there is a 69 year old woman -- Azuba Preston b. NY living with the family. If this was Elijah's mother... it places the line coming from NY via Ontario where Elijah was born in 1799. I have found two references to a loyalist William Preston in Ontario, but nothing solid. I did find an Elijah Preston b. 1799 no place listed with parents William Preston and Zuba Sweet on familysearch. I found the Othniel Preston family with son William born abt 1760 m. to a Hannah Sweet. Did Elijah have siblings -- does anyone know more about these Sweet girl/s?
If William was a loyalist, perhaps the family was torn apart by politics? Both Othniel's were in Rev - continental army... but I do know that other sibs moved to Ontario.

Thanks for any help/leads... Nancy Arnold Bumgartner
