I am seeking information on the following information: Thomas Judd son of Stephen, married Mercy Scott. He removed from Watertown, Conneticut to Harpersfield, New York about 1786 and afterwards lived in Otsego County, New York at Chenago, NY in Luzem County PA, Ontarios County NY and finally removed to Mayfield Ohio. This information was passed to me via a third party so I cannot vouch for it's accuracy. I am trying my best to substantiate the information and I would like to know if there is a way for me to find out if our ancestor was there and where he lived there and when. Any advice or help in anyway would be gratefully appreciated.
