MANCHESTER, Henry (about 1804 to 4/19/1886) married Sylvia Lorrinda (surname unknown) and had the following children: * Ralsman Curtis MANCHESTER (5/6/1832-4/15/1862) * Freeman MANCHESTER (1835-1915) * Joseph MANCHESTER (1838-1902) * Frances MANCHESTER (1846-?) * Mary MANCHESTER (1847-?) * Alfred MANCHESTER (1849-1921) Location of birth for each of these is unknown. They appear on the Chemung County, NY, census for 1850 but not before. Chemung County was settled in the late 1700's and early 1800's almost exclusively by Revolutionary War veterans on bounty land warrants. Many of them had served wtih Gen. John Sullivan's expedition in the area. Because of the abundance of Manchesters among Tiverton's early citizens, am hoping someone can help me with siblings and/or ancestors of Henry. Thank you for any help you can provide.
