She was my great-grandmother and I would appreciate hearing from anyone else who is working on the Lavin line. (I also had James and Katherine (Kilkinney) Lavin as Thomas's parents.)

Clinton Co,NY-Plattsburgh: Balch, Ebeneezer b.30 Aug 1766 in East Hartford,CT married Sarah Birchard of Becket,MA 4 Oct1791. They moved to Plattsburg, Clinton Co,NY in 1800, and both remained & are buried there. Ebeneezer Balch died in 1852. He came to Clinton Co.NY to trade in lumber, and made numerous trips to Canada to do so. At times members of his family would stay in Canada for periods of time to operate the business...
I am a descendant of a son of Ebeneezer Balch, Horatio James Balch b.22 July 1806 in Plattsburgh. Horatio James Balch married Sophronia Allard in May 1827 in Plattsburgh. He worked for his father, Ebeneezer & he & Sophronia were apparently living in 'English Canada' when their 2nd child & daughter Elizabeth Selina "Betsy" Balch was born on 21 Nov 1830 in "English Canada"--
in the federal census she consistently gives that as her birthplace, as do her 16 children during their lives.
The information I am seeking is: information on the Allard family, especially parents of Sophronia Allard Balch who was born in Vermont in 1810. Secondly information on the Balch family during the 52 years or more they lived in Plattsburgh. And finally to discover why Horatio James Allard brought his wife and very young family to the West by 1840. It is said they first came to Ohio (via the Great Lakes?) & by 1840 they were living in S.W. Indiana near Vincennes, Gibson & Knox Counties...in 1846 Horatio James Balch died, by 1847/48 Sophronia Allard Balch had remarried in Knox Co,IN to William Sutterfield who had grown children plus at least one younger son at home. This son, Issac Sutterfield married his new stepsister, my gr-greatgrandmother Elizabeth Selina Balch. William & Sophronia had 2 children more of there own, plus raising the younger Balch children. Issac & Elizabeth Balch Sutterfield moved west into southern IL by 1852, They lived in Richland County, Decker Twp, IL for the rest of their long lives and are both buried there, Elizabeth out-lived Issac & did remarry in her old age, but stayed in Richland Co.
There are many, many Sutterfield & Balch descendants in IN, IL, MO, AR & OK. I have gotten almost complete pre-Clinton information on the Balchs....they were early Plymouth Colony then to Wethersfield,CT etc. What we are all seeking is to fill in the Clinton Co,NY years.
Thank you for any help, Judy Hammond Bowman Rhodes, Rantoul, IL Additional note: Only one of Ebeneezer Balch's brothers were said to have accompanied him from MA to Plattsburgh & remained there: that brother was Timothy Balch b. 1768 in East Hartford, CT. Timothy married Ann Whitman probably in MA, and they lived in Plattsburgh from 1800 & had 9 children, numbers 1 - 3 being born in MA, and #4 -9 being born in Plattsburg. Their first child born in Plattsburgh was b.1801. I do not have the names of Timothy Balch's children, and that is another missing piece of information we are seeking.....jbr

Their names were Edward (my great- grandfather), Emma (Obey), Francis, George, Delia (Patnode, Babbie), Roseanna (Silver), Agnes (morlock, Henry and Thomas.
