Query - Message Board


I am looking for information about Mehitable Adams (1809-1892),
daughter of Charles Adams and Rebecca Morgan, her husband
Reuben Boyce Cobleigh (1809-1886), and a child they may
have had before they were married, Sophronia Adams (ca. 1826-1890).
I have been unable to find a marriage record for Mehitable and Reuben
or a birth record for Sophronia. Shortly after birth, Sophronia was sent
to Michigan, possibly to live with a family named Wray. Sophronia's name
when she was married in Michigan was Sophronia Abigail Ray. Sophronia revealed
in her obituary that she had been born in Vermont on August 12, 1826
with the name Adams. The date may not be exact since there were other errors
in the obituary. Any information about these people would be much appreciated.
Thank you,
Nancy Stimson
