I was recently told there appears an Enoch White on the 1810 census record. Located in the town of Georgia, Franklin County. He shows 1 male under 10, 2 females under 10 and 1 female between 26-44. Any other info on this family would be greatly appreciated. In particular, I am looking for Almira (or Elmira) born 1808 who I believe is either a daughter, or perhaps a sister to this Enoch.

I could not find an Almira White or Elmira White....
there is a Alvira, of Georgia, and John Bowker, m. Jan 29, 1828. That is all I could find, you might want to try Fairfax, Vermont, also. Diane

Thank you so much for taking the time, and for the information. I will research this possibility further, and look into Fairfax as you suggest.

Thank you so very much for the effort. I do not see an Almira (or Elmira) among your listing. Many dead ends on this particular ancestor. My info came from a descendant who died several years ago, and we have never been able to find out where his info came from. His data says only...Almira White b. abt 1808 Branford VT, father Enoch, and that she married Robert Rickaby in New York abt 1825. From her marriage forward, we have a great deal...but nothing prior.

Should you ever come across Almira in your searches, I would love to hear from you. Thank you again. Karin

Dear Karin,
I don't think the Enoch you are looking for is in my line.
All the Enochs are pretty well accounted for from 1773
forward. None had an Almira or Elmira listed. However,
Enoch's and (John Kinney White my direct line and brother
of Enoch) father was Sylvester White whose father was
David White (mother Mary Story). It is believed that
Sylvester had two brothers named Enoch and David but
we have not trace of them since about 1773 when the
family moved from MA to VT. If I do find anything, I'll
write again. Gladys

There is an Alvira or Elmira White that was born in 1804, daughter of David and Betsey White. On Jan. 29, 1828 she married a John Bowker of Georgia, VT. This comes from "Families of Georgia, VT." by Arlene Martell.
