Does anyone know if the Philo Hoadley on the 1790 federal census for New Haven Co., CT, had a descendant of the same name who ended up in Brazoria County, Texas, in 1838? I have seen two index listings of Philo Hoadlys in Delaware County, OH (1810 and 1830) and one for a Philo Hoadley in Livingston County, NY (1830). Are all these Philo Hoadl(e)ys related? Also in Delaware Co., OH, in 1844, a newspaper reported the death of Helen M. Hoadly (age 13), daughter of Thomas L. and Laura Hoadly. Might these be related to any of the aforementioned?

I can tell you something about Philo (Philander) Hoadley of Delaware Co, Ohio:

Philo: b. 12 Oct 1763, d. 1847 Ohio. He is also in the 1820 census for Berlin Twp, Delaware Co. (p 118 - image is on census images) His brother Chester also in the same Twp in 1820. Philo married Esther Hine in 1783 in New Haven Co, CT.

Parents: Ebenezer Hoadley b. 18 Mar 1738/39 Branford, New Haven, CT, d. 24 Sep 1814 New Haven Co, CT & Sarah Lewis b 9 apr 1743 New Haven Co, CT, d. 22 Jun New Haven Co, CT.

Philo went from CT to Delaware Co. about 1808-09: here is a portion of an account which I found on the Internet about them (I am researching Lovell Caulkins, who came with him):

"The Hoadleys and Scott, anxious to secure a soil less sterile than their native State presented, were glad to believe the exaggerated description of the West, and, purchasing their land, started in two wagons. Philo Hoadley, besides his wife and three boys, afforded accommodations for Lovell and Lucy Caulkins". (Look at this site which has a ton of info about this group - Hoadley, Caulkins, Lewis, etc.

So, I don't know if the Ohio Philo was the ancestor of the one who would up in Texas, but he is definetely the one who came from CT. If you need more info/sources/ or further back in Ebenezer's family, reply to this message.

My reference to Philo's brother Chester is incorrect - he did have a brother Chester, but the Chester in the 1820 census in Berlin was Chester Lewis, not Hoadley.

Patricia, Thank you for the additional information on the Hoadly family of Delaware County, Ohio. Unfortunately, other than the marriage recorded in Brazoria County, Texas, I have no information about the Philo Hoadley who married Mrs. Felia Winney on 1 February 1838 in Velasco. I would like to find out where they went from here. I can't find any Hoadleys in Texas on the 1850 or '60 census, nor on the 1840 tax lists throughout the Republic of Texas. I am wondering if he might have been a preacher.
