Notes: Elizabeth Gregory was orphaned in 1824. Her parents, Jehiel and Sarah VanDolah Gregory, died in 1823 and 1824 respectively, leaving four children ages 0-6, with Elizabeth the oldest. Jehiel’s single younger brother Adley was the guardian for all four children, but only John, now 8, lives with him; the other three girls live with family friends: Elizabeth, 12 with Isaac Cook, Annis 10 with John Leavitt (not found on census), and Mary Jane 6 with Otho Williams. In 1830, Adley is 33 and just got married three years ago—the children in his home are unknown except for John, age 8. It is possible that Adley even moved into Jehiel’s home, leaving his mother Elizabeth Gregory alone in her home at age 73. Our 12-year old Elizabeth lives nearby with the family of Isaac Cook, also 33 (although it looks like he was entered as 20-30), who married Elizabeth Lewis in 1820 in a double-ceremony with Lettitia Howsmon and John Britton. Only the three youngest boys could be Isaac’s children—the other five children 11-30 are unknown.
