I am interested in the descendants of Zebulon CROSS and Sarah HARTSHORN, m 3 Dec 1761, in Mansfield, Tolland, Conneticut. My ancestor, one Zebulon CROSS was born abt 1769 and married Keziah (surname unknown). The LDS on-line records list this Zebulon from Mansfield as the closest marriage date to have fathered my ancestor. I wonder if Zebulon and Mary may have had him as a son based on marriage date. My ancestor Zebulon has at least three children: Holdy or Huldy abt 1796, Asa abt 1798 and Sarah 1803-06 (all born in the US). The family appears in Ontario Canada by 1816 when my ggggrandfather, Elias is born, and appear on a census for Brighton Ontario in 1851. It's here that Zebulon lists his age as 82, born in the US (and the approx b date of 1769 from that info). Hoping someone knows of this family and the connection I'm looking for.

This is my most elusive ancestor to date. Can anyone help me with the parentage for Sarah Maria DIMOCK/DIMMOCK?
Sarah Maria DIMMOCK born 4 or 24 Oct 1828. She married Enoch C. COLEMAN in Mansfield 26 Jan 1851, "both of Mansfield," by Nahum TAITON. On the marriage certificate it says that she was born in Willington. Willington has no record of her. Sarah died in Brookfield, Mass., 20 Apr 1886. On her death certificate it just states only that her parents were Mr. & Mrs. DIMMOCK. I find her in 1850 living with Gardner and Julia REYNOLDS in the Eagle Section of Mansfield.
