Despite having a number of New England ancestors, I have very few in the 1790 census. Certainly half of my ancestry is Slovak. The New England part is 25% Scottish, and almost 50% via Atlantic Canada. So only 1/8 or 12.5% of my ancestry is in this country at that time.
- Thomas Pinkham 1752-1820
- Ebenezer Runnels 1765-1851
Those two I did do sketches for in the New Hampshire volume one. The son of Mr. Pinhkam married the daughter of Mr. Runnels and became my great-great-great-grandparents.
- Stephen Berry 1724-1820, New Durham 2-0-3
- Isaac Stanton 1732-1829, Middleton, 1-2-3 (under the name Isaiah)
- Nathaniel Wallis 1746-aft. 1830, Epsom 2-6-3
- Benjamin York 1761-1845, New Durham Gore, 1-2-3
- Benjamin York 1725-1803, Middleton 1-1-1
- Abner Coffin not enumerated, maybe part of William Chadwick's household
- Reuben Heard 1722-aft 1806, 1-1-1
- Jonathan Heard, 1758-aft 1823, 1-1-3
- Moses Hayes (Jr.) 1763-1838 unfortunately, there are 3 Moses Hayes households in Rochester. Which is which is a question. I descend from two of them, father and son.
- Moses Hayes 1726-1813
- Benjamin Learned Dublin, 1741-1818, 3-4-3, under Larnard
- Josiah Dudley, 1745-aft 1820, Newport (already published)
- Daniel Dudley, 1719-1811, Newport (already published)
- Gideon Denison (Conn.)
Part of the reason I waited on many of these people was that I had incomplete data and was always hoping to find just that one bit more. Wallis, Reuben and Jonathan Heard and Josiah Dudley all do not have certain death dates. In fact, it really was just this year, that I perfected what I knew about Nathaniel Wallis. I'm still missing a daughter for Jonathan Heard. Moses Hayes and son are well done in Katherine Richmond's John Hayes of Dover Genealogy, so I'm thinking it would be superfluous to do them. Likewise, Benjamin Learned is done well enough in Eugenia Learned James' Learned Genealogy. The Dudleys were done by someone else, although not well, in my opinion. And, of course, Gideon Denison is my only 1790-er not in N.H. So perhaps an upcoming goal would be to write up Nathaniel Wallis and submit him.
