I am looking for the same family. Hannah Vernold (1797 - 1873) married Grumman Elwood. They lived in Downsville, NY (Same town). In the 1820/1830 census of Colcester, there is a William Varnel listed next to "Drummond Elwood", and a John Varnel (B 1800-1810) listed on the other side of "Drummond Elwood". The 1850 census has Henry Vernold (age 51), wife Angelana (Age 46), and William H., Samantha (?) (16) Francis (11), Esther (9), Charles (5), John H (3), and Elizabeth (6 months). However, in the graveyard at Warren St. (Corbet, NY), There is Hanry Vernold d. 19 Oct 1859, age 60, Angelana, wife of d 9 May 1880, 75 years, 9 months, Charles O., son of, d. 27 AUg 1862 (Battle of Bristoc's) age 18 years, John H., son of, d. 5 Mar 1849, age 3 years 11 months, 16 days, George J., son of, d 1 Feb 1834, age 2 yrs, 6 months, and Susan, dau. of, D. 1 Apr 1837, age 1 year, 3 months.

Do you have any information on Elwood's wife Hannah or her ancestors? Also, I am trying to confirm that John, Henry G, and William Vernold (Vernal) were her siblings.

Hi Dean,

Actually what I have doesn't show Hannah Vernold, but possibly an earlier connection.

I'm searching for more information on a HULDAH ELWOOD who married GRUMMAN MOREHOUSE (no dates or information) who had a daughter HULDAH MOREHOUSE who married an Aaron Burr as follows:

BORN: 30 AUG 1778,
DIED: 12 NOV 1848,
MARRIED: Aaron BURR, 3 APR 1799,
Mary-Ann BURR
Abigail-Silliman BURR
Aveline BURR

I'm speculating the Grumman Elwood and Vernolds mentioned in this thread of posts may descended though one of these couples.

I would very much like to correspond with any of you who have an Elwood or Morehouse or Burr or Grumman in your database.

I have added a response to the Varnal forum. In my travels, I have found that some of the Asa Jones family of Poundridge, NY as well as possibly Dann relatives from Dantown migrated to Delaware county. There is a query on that board for Varnals living in Poundridge in 1790. It looks suspicious, but I have no data to make any connection.

This thread hasn't been active in a long time, but I'm hoping someone will see my post and be able to help out. I'm looking for a Phoebe Vernold / Varnold who married John Miller. They were born c.1808. Together they had children George William, Margaret Ann, James, Robert & John W. I can find several Vernold families in the area, but I can't find her parents and siblings.
