Daniel Andrus Benedict in 1830, 1840?

I think I may have found Daniel Andrus Benedict in Ledyard, Cayuga, New York in the 1830 and 1840 censuses. Both correlate with how his household would have been in those years. That could mean the information I had showing him having been born and having died in Canandaigua, Ontario, New York could be in error. I found his widow, Lydia in Canandaigua living with her daughter Lydia Sanford in 1850. I followed some of Simeon Benedict’s siblings through the 1850 – 1880 censuses as well. The information is in my Benedict leads file.

If Daniel Andrus Benedict did, in fact, live in Cayuga County then it’s quite improbable that Simeon was not born in Canandaigua. I haven’t yet found any indication of where Daniel lived in 1810 or 1820.
