My ancestor Delana (Delia) Gorham was born in Poultney NY (isn't it VT?) in 1808, daughter of John Mary Gorham. She married Lyman Burt in Montgomery MA. I would like to find information on John Mary Gorham.

Here is some info I pulled from "History of Pittsford". Hopefully it will help you.

Seth Gorham was born in Fairfield CT and married Millicent Dunks(?). They had Betsey, Barlow, Eli, Deming, Judson, Alonzo, and Laura. Seth moved to Pittsford VT (from Rutland VT)with his family in 1835. Deming was born 6/6/1789 Poultney VT and died 11/14/1861 Pittsford VT. He married Sabra Gates on 2/11/1808. Sabra was born 8/22/1790 Rutland VT and died 6/23/1869.

Also, maybe the following might help. It is a listing of Gorhams from Poultney, Pittsford Rutland VT from censuses.

Wow, finally a bite. My gx4 grandfather is Lyman who married Delania Gorhman. I have his line from me to him if you could give me info on Delania. I have some questions.

Do you happen to have any more information on the William Gorham who appears in your 1850 census? The records that I can access omit 1830, 1840, and 1850. And the William I'm looking for was born in Vermont, 1824.

Any information would be helpful.

That William was 30 years old and born in Vermont but he was living with a Smith family and his relation, if any, was not stated. The only William born in Vermont in 1824 that I can place is William Densmore Gorham. He is listed in the censuses as Densmore. According to some info I got off of the internet he was born in Kirby VT on July 14, 1824 to William Gorham (of Yarmouth Mass) and Rachel Wilcox . I don't know how accurate this is. William Densmore married Abigail M Gleason and they were in Kirby at least up to 1880. If this sounds promising then I can try to help you dig up more info.
