The following note was passed on by Darlene Bennett (Great-Grandmother was Margaret Jean Elijah, dau. of Abel Elijah)
Grass Valley, CA

The 1810 Federal Census shows Lewis Sr living in Middltown, Delaware County, NY. Some contend that Abel, the youngest child was born in Andes, Delaware County, NY, though I have not found proof of that yet. If it is true, then they had moved there before or in 1808, as Abel was born 13 Dec 1808.
Based on this information, Abel was probably born in the Middletown area of New York State, Delaware County
