Query

FROM ARLONA MAYHUGH

I was wondering if you would have any information on James Olin, who was born 7 Nov. 1773, East Greenwich, Kent Co., Rhode Island, son of Giles and Anna (Reynolds) Olin. According to some data that I have found on the Internet and the IGI, he married Sarah Ellis (parent's unknown) about 1804 who was "of" Schoharie, Schoharie, New York. Children:

Zebulon Utter, 1805; Esther, 1807 (my line) born in Schoharie Co.

Roxanna, 1808; born in Schoharie Co.

Giles, 1810, born in Schoharie Co.

Henry, 1812 born in Kortright, Delaware Co., NY

Hiram W., 1817, born in Kortright, Delaware Co., NY.

According to another source from the Internet and the IGI, James Olin, same birth date as above, married Esther Reyneld, "of" Western Oneida Co., NY (parent's unknown) with children: Julia,1800, born Western, Oneida Co., NY; Roxanna O., 1808, born Schoharie Co., NY and Henry, 1812 born Cartwright, Delaware Co., NY. This source also has that James was born in Shaftsbury, Bennington Co., VT. There was a James Olin in an 1800 Western, Oneida Co., NY census with 1 female, -10. Something does not jive here. I know that probably both James's are the same person and probably he had only 1 wife so which is the correct one?

Esther Olin married Charles Eaton, May 1824, Virgil, Cortland Co., NY. Their children are: James Olin Eaton; Sarah Jane; Jeanette Harriet; Hiram W. and Francis E. They had an older daughter, name unknown, born and died in 1825. James Olin came to Tompkins Co., NY between 1810 and 1820. Eventually Charles and Esther also moved there and James Olin was in their household in the 1850 census. It said that he was born in Rhode Island. I do not have the death date of James or Sarah or their daughter, Esther (she was in the 1870 Tompkins Co., census)

Any information that you might have for James Olin and Sarah Ellis, I certainly would appreciate, as well as any information for the rest of Giles Olin's children. There are only 2 listed in the Olin Family Web site.
