About 1862 John Delevan had a daughter, Corintha Delevan in the County of Niagra. His wife's name is Phoebe. These Delevan's did not stay long in Niagra County as a daughter was born in Wayne County in 1864. I would estimate that they were in this area from after the 1860 census to the summer of 1864. What I would like to know is if John and Phoebe got married in Niagra County, and if there is anyway I could maybe get a birth record for Corintha - March 2000
