Does anyone have any information on Noah or Ephraim Wetherell/Witherell/Witherill who were in Conquest & Auburn early 1800's. I am trying to fill in some holes, especially since I have a Harvey/Hervey as son of Ephraim, but his obituary in Michigan says that he is the son of Noah,.. Any help would be appreciated.

Just a little more on the Hiram/Harvey Witherell in Cayuta, NY. I show he was son of Ephraim Witherell III (1773-1849) and Ephraim was son of Ephraim Wetherell (1745-1785)and Tabitha Harvey (1742-1798). Ephraim Jr. and Tabitha Wetherell had: Rhoda, Noah, Selah, Epjhraim (above), Josiah, Tabitha, Asa/asph, and Lydia.

Ephraim Jr. was son of Ephraim Wetherell (1721-1774/6) and Barsheba (or Bathsheba) Wilde (1724-?)dau of John Wilde, Jr. and Abigail Bass. They had nine children.

Ephraim Jr. was son of Nathaniel Wetherell b. Norton, Mass (1696-1760) and Mary White. Ephraim Jr. was son of William Wetherell (1651-1729) and Elizabeth Newland (?-1700). William was son of William Wi(e)therell (1627-1691) and Dorothy? ) That William was son of ? Witherell of England and that ? Witherell was son of ? (prob. Roger) Witherell by ca 1565 in northern England. According to tradition, he married a dau or gr-dau of Rev. John Rogers, the Martyr and Adriana Pratt. Hope this helps.

I show Ebenezer Ackerman b 1801 Madison Co, NY m. Hannah B. Welch b1807, chenango Co, NY. Ebenezer is POSSIBLY son of Isaac Ackerman and Sally ?. This is a very tentative identification, however.

They had the following children (per our records); however, I have not verified this.

1. Almira (Alma) b 1831, NY
2. Naboth b 1833 Sterling, Cayuga Co., NY
3. Job Riley (called Riley) b 17 Mar 1835 b Wolcott, Wayne Co, NY
4. Henrietta (Annette) b 1837, Cortland Twp., Cortland Co, NY m. Henry Witherall
5. Nelson P. b 1839, Cortland Twp., Cortland Co., NY
6. Olive E. b 21 Nov 1841, Cortland twp., Cortland Co., NY.
7. Gertrude b 1845, Cortland twp. Cortland Co., NY
8. Roscoe E. b 1848, same, same, same
9. Charles Isaac b 1850, Mc Grawville, Cortland Co., NY.
10. Mary (?mother 46), Mc Grawville, Cortland Co., NY

They are mentioned in the 1820, 1830, 185, and 1860 Census but I have not had time to analyze them, nor am I sure that I actually have a copy of the census record. Please let me know if you have more information on Henry Witherell and his family or any of the others I mention.

Thanks Jerry. I am searching for Henry Witherell 1835/37, possibly Tioga Co. NY. He married Henrietta (Anjette/Anette) Ackerman dau of Ebenezer Ackerman. I have been unable to find more positive info on this Henry Witherell/Witherall, but believe he lived in Cayuga County and possibly Cortland. Are you searching this Ackerman line?

Tjanks for the quick response. The Witherell I am looking for in Cayuta County is Henry or "Hank" Witherell/Witherill born ca 1835/37. In 1892 he was a resident of Barton, Tioga Co. NY. I have not found a death date or burial place. It is possible the name is also spelled Henery. He married Henrietta Ackerman, dau of Ebenezer Ackerman and Hanna B. Welch. They had two children, Henry Edgar "Ed" Witherell and Editha "Eda" Witherell, twins, born 1 Feb 1860 (or 1864. This Henry Edgar married Elizabeth Ann "Libby" Brown on 4 Oct 1888 and he died 3 May 1939. Are you searching the Ackerman line?
