Ezra Trim was my 3rd great-grandfather. He is not buried at the Mt. Adnah Cemetery in Fulton, NY; rather, he and his wife, Rosannah, are buried at Palermo, NY, in Oswego, County. (This is a few miles away from Fulton.) Ezra Trim's parents were Moses Trim and Mehitable Pendle Trim. Moses Trim was from Lyme, CT and Mehitable Pendle was from Bolton, CT. Mehitable was born in 1714, the daughter of John Pendle and Elizabeth Carpenter. Moses and Mehitable were married in 1737. Their children were: John Trim, born 1738; Elizabeth Trim, born 1740 or 1741; Mathias Trim, born 1743; Katherine Trim, born 1744, Mary Trim, born 1746; and Ezra Trim, born 1750. The children were baptized at the Congregational Church in Bolton, CT. Moses Trim and his family moved to Pawling, Dutchess County, N. In about 1762 or 1763, they went with the Susquehenna Company to a settlement in northeastern Pennsylvania on the Delaware River--a place called Lackawaxen--where several members of this family, excluding Moses Trim and Ezra (age 13), were killed in Oct. of 1763 when the Delaware Indians raided the settlement. Ezra Trim was taken hostage, and turned back to the British at Old Fort Niagara, NY in July of 1764. After his release, Ezra Trim returned to Dutchess County, New York. Moses Trim, Ezra's father, also returned to Dutchess County, and was alive in 1790, according to the U.S. Census of 1790. As you already know, Ezra Trim served in the Revolutionary War. He enlisted in the Connecticut Militia, and also served in three different militia units in New York. He and his wife, Rosannah, had 7 children: Moses Augustus Trim who married Lavina Hurlbert; John Trim who married Sarah Evans; Simeon Trim who married Cynthia Shumway Oviatt; Sally Trim who married Rev. George Hills; Mary Trim who married Humphrey Dolbear; Elizabeth Trim who married Nathaniel Barsley Whitehead (my great-great grandparents); and Ebenezer Trim who married Mary Eisenlord.
