I haven't delved too deeply into the Sawdey side of the family yet, however, just from public family trees and such, I've seen conflicting info on who people think his father was. Some say a Benjamin Sawdey, others, Philip Sawdey. In Milo, NY there is Censuses for a Philip Sawdey and a Humphrey Sawdey. However, being the very early census, it only lists heads of households and ticks for children within certain age brackets. I do have the indictment records for the Sawdey's in Penn Yan, and Cyrenus is listed in one of them along with Philip. I've seen no mention of a Benjamin. If someone could tell me where they found their info so I could investigate myself, I'd really appreciate it.
