Where in the World is Daniel Fenn?

Where in the World is Daniel Fenn?

This question has been asked by me many times as I research Daniel Fenn.  My records of him start in 1808, at the age of 21, when he married Huldah Rowley.  I have no record of Daniel's first 21 years of life.  Where in the World are you, Daniel?

Daniel Fenn is my paternal, third great grandfather, of parents yet to be identified. I don't have a place of birth for him. I have done some research with census records, that I don't have, and this is what I found.

  • 1790-Daniel would have been about 3 years old. There are 33 Fenn's in this census.
  • 1800-Daniel would have been about 13 years old.  There are 14 Fenn's in this Census with a boy between the ages of 10-15.  12 are living in Connecticut and 2 in New York. Narrowing it down further is hard because I don't know if Daniel had any siblings.
  • 1810-Daniel would have been about 23, married to Huldah Rowley, age 21. Daniel and Huldah were married in Shoreham, Addison, Vermont in 1808.  I could not find Daniel in Shoreham census records during this time.  I found Huldah's father, Hopkins Rowley, with a male and female living with him that were Daniel and Huldah's age.  Could Daniel and Huldah be living with her father in 1810?

More research and information needs to be conducted to determine Daniel's residence during his early years and to identify his parents!
