Asenath BAILEY & Benjamin LAWRENCE  Family of Sullivan Township

1. Asenath1 Bailey, daughter of Robert Bailey and Asenath Wilson*, reference B1.12516 (#7744) was born in Connecticut 13 APR 1790. Seeny died 28 NOV 1870 in Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 80. Her body was interred NOV 1870 in Lawrence Corners, Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania.

She married Benjamin Lawrence BEF 1820. (Benjamin Lawrence is #7743.) Benjamin was born 14 AUG 1786 in Connecticut. Benjamin was the son of Mr. ? Lawrence ????. Benjamin died 25 AUG 1855 in Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 69. His body was interred AUG 1855 in Lawrence Corners, Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Benjamin registered to pay taxes 1816 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Sullivan Township was formed in 1816. It was taken from Covington Township. Its original boundaries included the southern half of Rutland formed in 1829, and the northern part of Ward which was formed in 1852.

Benjamin was listed as the head of a family on the 1820 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Benjamin registered to pay taxes 1829 in Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Rutland Township was formed From Jackson and Sullivan in 1828. William Howland, William Rose and Ezra Wood performed the first tax assessment.

Benjamin was listed as the head of a family on the 1830 Census in Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Benjamin was listed as the head of a family on the 1850 Census in Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Benjamin and Asenath were at thome with son William for thie census. Catherine Corzatt, age 18, born NJ, was also in the household. Benjamin Lawrence was here prior to the 1812 assesment and the 1816 formation of Sullivan. However the people I am interpreting as his children were born later than this in different places than Pennsylvania. Do not know if census is inaccurate or if these are not his sone. Although since they live next door to him there is every reason to believe they are his sons. Henry Lawrence also an 1816 taxable. Possibly a brother. Could this be Asenath Bailey # 16675 ??

Asenath Bailey and Benjamin Lawrence had the following children:

2 i. Francis2 Lawrence (#72546). Named in father's will in 1855.

3 ii. Asenath Lawrence (#72547). Named in father's will.
