PAGE ONE NOTES FROM LYNN STEVENSON FISHER:
This page of the census appears to cover the eastern area of the township near the village of Mecklenburg. The following notes present research possibilities, and, unless otherwise noted, the identity of the individuals has not been proven.

Cornelius HUMPHREY - The will of a Cornelius Humfrey of the town of Hector, N.Y., dated Feb. 20, 1811, was presented for probate April 8, 1812.  Executors were:  Wm. C. Humfrey and Charles Carman.  Children named were: eldest daughter Mary, wife of Charles Carman, received deed for 1000 acres in the “2nd allotment in the Royal Grant”;  eldest son Cornelius received a deed for 103 acre portion of lot 67 (Hector?) lying on the east side of Spruce Creek in the “1st allotment of the Royal Grant” and land on the south and blacksmith tools; grandchildren through deceased daughter Elizabeth;  son Wm. C. received remainder after debts. (Source: Seneca County RootsWeb.)

James BOWLY - A James Bowley was on the June 11, 1806, jury list for Hector, Seneca Co. (Source: Seneca Co. RootsWeb.)

Andrew STEVENSON, Jun. - Identity proven.  Andrew Stevenson Jr., born May 28, 1779, in Charlotte/Washington Co., N.Y., was the son of Andrew Stevenson Sr. and possibly either Susannah Gordon or Margaret Gilmore.  His father, Andrew Sr. is listed on page 2 of this census.  Andrew Jr. married Tabitha Dolph on Sept. 4, 1800, in Fort Ann/Westfield, Washington Co., and per this record his middle initial was “E.”   Tabitha, born Dec. 15, 1777, in Spencertown, N.Y., was the daughter of Abda Dolph and Mary Coleman.  Per a land deed, around 1804 Andrew Jr. and/or his father moved to Hector south of Mecklenburg.  (An Andrus Stevenson is listed on an 1804 jury list for Ulysses, Seneca Co. and in 1805 as Andrew.  This could be Andrew Sr. or Jr.) His brothers Gilbert, Alexander, and James also moved to the Hector-Enfield area;  his sister Elizabeth married William Austin and remained in northern N.Y./Canada;  he reportedly had two other sisters, Margaret and Susannah, whose whereabouts are unknown but one reportedly married a Toser and the other a Pitcher and a King.  Their father Andrew died in Hector in 1816;  his wife Susannah was alive in Jan. 1816 at the time of his will.  Between 1818 and 1820, Andrew Jr. moved to Dearborn Co., Ind.  Tabitha apparently died between 1815 and 1826, for he married Rachel Early in 1826 in Dearborn Co. He had a number of children with both, including reportedly: 1) Armour, born Dec. 16, 1802, in N.Y.; 2) Susan Susannah, born abt. 1803 in N.Y.;  3) Sylvanus, born abt. 1809 in N.Y.; 4) & 5) James and Thomas Horace, born March 27, 1815, in Cayuga (?)

Isaac AVERY -  An Isaac Avery was on an 1810 jury list for Ulysses twp., Seneca Co., N.Y.

Longstreet HARVEY - A Longstreet Harvey, son of Stephen Harvey Sr. and Lydia Longstreet, was born Dec. 10, 1778, in N.J., died Aug. 30, 1858,  and was buried in Shepherd's Hill Cemetery, Shelby Co., Ind.  On Aug. 20, 1801, in Cranberry, Middlesex, N.J., Longstreet married Charity Bennett, born May 1, 1781, in N.J., died March  27, 1869, and buried in Shepherd’s Hill Cemetery.  They moved from N.J. to Seneca Co., N.Y.;  then to Sharonville, Ohio, (building and floating a raft down the Ohio River from Fort Pitt, Penn., to Cincinnati, Ohio) where they stayed three years; then in 1817 to Mt.

Silivan HUBBEL - Page two of this census lists a Sulivan D. Hubble.  The two may be related, but it does not appear that they were father and son.

Henry’s brother John married Mary King in 1799 in Trumansburg and Maria Himrod in 1811.  (Source: RootsWeb World Connect.) A Henry McLallen was on an 1804 Ulysses, Seneca Co. jury list. (Source: Seneca Co. RootsWeb.)

Baker and Lydia Chase, who came to Enfield area in 1804 from Coxsackie, Greene, N.Y. (Source: RootsWeb World Connect.)  A Moses Lovell was an executor to the will of John Ink of town of Ulysses, N.Y., dated Aug. 9, 1815, and proved Sept. 26, 1815; Gilbert Stevenson, brother of Andrew Stevenson Jun. on page one of Hector 1810 census, was a witness.
