Benway / Beneway / Benaway all indications from census 1850, 1855, 1860, 1875, Angus b. abt. 1832, NY should be in Oswego Co. in 1870, I can only find Anthony/Author Benway, b. 1794, Canada

1855

Name: Angus Benway - 1850 - 1875 - 1880 -
Event Type: Census
Event Date: 1855
Event Place: E.D. 1, Granby, Oswego, New York
Gender: Male
Age: 21
Relationship to Head of Household: Head
Birth Year (Estimated): 1834
Family Number: 37

Household- Gender- Age- Birthplace
Head - Angus Benway - M - 21- b. abt. 1834, Canada
Wife - Angeline Benway - F - 19 - b. abt. 1836, Canada - later marries Jonathan Arnold Loomis ?
Child - Julia Benway - F - 12 - b. abt. 1843, Canada
Child - Mary Benway - F - 2 - b. abt. 1853, Oswego - this Mary is Jennet/Jennie ??
Sister - Justine Pigeon - F- 29 - b. abt.  1826, Canada
Sister - Mary Benway - F - 16 - b. abt. 1839, NY State - or this Mary is Jennet/Jennie ??
Sister - Ordelia Bennet - F - 17 - b. abt. 1838, Canada
Child - Angus Benway - M - 2 - b. abt. 1853, Oswego

Notes: Angus & Angeline as husband and wife, could not have had Julia, age 12

in 1860, Mary(1853) would be 7, and Julia (1843) would be 17, Julia is not listed in the 1850

 

Sister Justin Pigeon, a married name, sister to head of house Angus so she is Justine Benway, Justine Pigeon/Pigion nee Benway, in 1850 would be 24, Justine I can understand being married by then.

 

Sister Mary Benway, sister to Angus, b. 1834

 

Sister Ordelia Bennet, a married name, sister to Angus, b. 1834

and Angus Benway, age 2, b. abt. 1853, twin to Mary (1853), age 2, are the children of Angus & Angeline.

Angus of the 1850, age 18, b. abt. 1832, is he the same Angus, age 21, b. abt. 1834, 5 yrs later in 1855, should be 23, and the Angus of 1850 is born NY not Canada as this 1855 shows.

None of the Sister's are shown in the 1850 census, from the 1850 census, Joseph would be 21, George & Frances 18, and John 13, in 1855.  Neither are listed with Angus and Angeline.

 

And some do/did marry at age 14, so either Mary of 1855 census could have, not knowing how accurate their birth years per the census are married by 1880.

1860

 

It maybe that on the 1855 Census Jennet is referred to as Mary.  On 1860 Census she is JENNET.  Married by 1867 so not on 1870 with what appears to be her mum Angeline BENWAY nee ?? living with Arnold/Jonathon LOOMIS.

 

From Doc: Unknown their middle names or if some of the given names are their middle names have been used instead.

HI Doc

 

I found no record showing Jonathan living Flint, Genesee MI in 1886, do you have this source ?

This comes from his mother Eliza's will said he was living there.

 
 

Thanks for finding this it may lead somewhere??

 

I do find in the City Directories, living in Cicero, Onondaga Co., NY a
northern suburb of Syracuse on 77 acres

 

Name: Jonathan A Loomis
Residence Year: 1885
Street Address: 77 acres Cicero
Residence Place: Syracuse, New York
Publication Title: Syracuse, New York, City Directory, 1885

 

Not sure on any details re him Jonathon entering the States have just started this line of research.

 

Noted from your link to Flint G S there is no Angeline and/or Arnold John/Johnathon.  May they did not stay in Genesse MI too long.

 

And births in Genesse for a Loomis child maybe too late for anymore children for Angeline.

 

This all started as I'm trying to find out if Angeline BENWAY and ANGUS BENWAY (aka Angus VALOR)  are Jennet/Jennie COLLIER/BENWAY'S parents.

 

It maybe that on the 1855 Census Jennet is referred to as Mary.  On 1860 Census she is JENNET.  Married by 1867 so not on 1870 with what appears to be her mum Angeline BENWAY nee ?? living with Arnold/Jonathon LOOMIS.

 

When you look at the 1870 Census with Angeline/Arnold/Benway kids and one random LEBO (don't know who she is) and then you compare it to the 1860 Census with Angeline Angus Benway and kids it seems to add up.

 

Angus Benway is then in 1875 living with Julia La Rock/Benway in Oswego Palermo.

 

By chance if you come across Angus BENWAY (VALOR) on the 1870 NY census I would be most appreciative. 

 

So looks like Angus and Angeline split up he ends up with a very young Julia La Rock and Angeline ends up with Jonathon Loomis who is actually her sister-in-law's brother.

 

Angus brother was Francis BENWAY he married Sophronia LOOMIS, who is Jonathons sister crazy little family this one is.

 

What maybe a good idea for me to do is purchase Angus Benway's civil war record he enlisted deserted then re enlisted using the name VALOR.  These documents may just mention childrens names and if Jennie/Jennet (Mary?) Collier BENWAY is mentioned well that would be fantastic.  Kindest regards for reading my ramblings bye from a very HOT Sydney.  Dianna
