Samantha MESNARD was born June 19, 1809. The Mesnards were very religious and successful. They would have been upstanding citizens and probably Masons. Smantha's maternal grandfather was at least the head of a lodge. His tavern still stands. When it was renovated secret doors were discovered that hid Masonic symbols marking the tavern as a Masonic building. Luther has a Masonic mark on his grave. I believe the Bakers were Masons and possibly so were the Everinghams.

1806 Records of the Congregational Church of Greenfield, N.Y. (Page 31)... "Wednesday, Feb 12, 1806, Married Mr. Andrew Mesnard to Miss Rebecca Hoit." from other's research it is probable that Andrew previously had children with and was married to Mary Hoit, possible cousin of Rebecca.

information from research of historian J. Roy Dodge, 1991
"On May 27, 1830 Enoch Everingham, who had removed to the town of Manlius with one of his older brothers, returned to LaFayette. He purchased sixty acres, adjacent to his brother's old home, on lot #91. This was a mortgage foreclosure by decree of the Master of Chancery, Abijah Yelverton, against Frederick and Rufus Freeman. (Bk. UU P.51) Upon this acreage Enoch lived from 1830 and in the year 1844, or so it is said, built the large house still standing thereon. "
