Jehiel B Hathaway and Hulda Baker

Jehiel B Hathaway and Hulda Baker

I am searching for documented proof as to the parents of Jehiel B Hathaway, 1811-1894, who was born in New York according to every federal census, and later moved his entire family to Trimbelle, Pierce, Wisconsin. At this point the speculation points either to that of Benjamin Hathaway and Elizabeth French; or to Benjamin Hathaway and his 2nd/3rd wife, Lodema Beardsley. I am a descendant of Lodema and her 2nd husband, Levander Carpenter. This would make Jehiel Hathaway my 2nd great grand uncle if Lodema was his mother. Thank you in advance for any help you might be able to give me. Mary

Surnames: Hathaway, French, Baker, Beardsley
Am not related. There are numerous posts for Jehiel Beardsley Hathaway at Rootsweb World Connect. typical;
Father: Benjamin Hathaway b: 28 MAR 1747 in Freetown, Bristol, Massachusetts
Mother: Elizabeth French b: 14 JUL 1768 in Berkley, Massachusetts
In one of the DBs Jehiel is listed as one of 13 children. Assuming Elizabeth was his mother, she would have been about 43 when he was born; reasonable age. None of the DB's indicate an alternate marriage. Also found no indication of a Beardsley "legacy name".
