JEFFERSON COUNTY NEW YORK
PIONEER STANFORD FAMILY
1. *GILES4 STANFORD (*JOSHUA3, *JOSHUA2, *ROBERT1) was born March 24, 1795
in New York, and died April 02, 1866 in Rockdale Township, Crawford Co.,
PA. He is on the census for Martinsburg, Lewis Co.,N.Y. from 1820 throught1835.
In 1835 he moved to Watertown, Jefferson Co., N.Y. and resided there until 1847
at which time he and his family moved to Crawford Co., PA.
He married abt 1819 in Jefferson or Lewis Co., New York
*BETSEY BUNCE , daughter of *JACOB BUNCE and *RACHEL SATTERLEE. She was born March 04, 1801 in New York, and died
April 01, 1887 in Rockdale Township, Crawford Co., PA. Their first child
Jeremiah was said to have been born in Watertown township in 1820, so the question
of which county they actually lived in is unresolved at this time. I think
they quite possibly lived close to the county line between Jefferson and Lewis
Counties. All of their children moved to PA with them except for Aurelia and
Aurisa - see below.
