Josephine Scofield Moore Joslyn b1856 NY, with Chas & Aletta Moore Litchfield CT

Would be grateful for any info on the family of Josephine Moore b1856 NY. She is thought to have been the daughter of Charles H. Moore (b1835 Isle of Man) & Aletta b1836 NY. However on the 1860 Salisbury Ct census she is living with Charles & Aletta as Josephine Scofield 4 b NY. There is also a Susan Scofield b1795 NY. In the 1870 Winchester CT census she is living with Charles & Aletta as Jessie Moore 14. In the 1880 Winsted CT census she is living with Mrs Charles Moore as Josie Joslin 23 as niece. She had married Arlon Joslyn b1847 RI. Thanks for any help with this mess.

This doesn't answer your question but did you notice the Hattie Scofield listed under Jessie Moore in the 1870 census? That Hattie Scofield married Seba R. Beach, Josephine Joslyn's sons (Wesley, Wilbur and Eddie) are living with Mrs Harriet Beach in the 1900 US census for Winchester. The attached 1909 obit for Wesley Joslyn mentions the aunt and an uncle Rev F. S. Scofield of NY City.

The 1917 obit for Hattie A. (Scofield) Beach mentions that she was born in Wappinger Falls, NY and was the SISTER of Mrs Charles Moore.

Thanks. This is very helpful. I'm guessing that Aletta, Hattie & Rev F S Scofield are siblings and that their mother is Susan Scofield. And that Josephine is Hattie's daughter. Her birth may be closer to 1836 - see below.

Or... Josephine was the daughter of an, as yet, unknown Scofield who died young, a sibling of Aletta, Hattie and Rev. F.S.

In case you don't have these Joslyn death notices, I copied them while I was searching, see below.
