1790 Census1790Canajoharie, Montgomery Co., NY, USA, Lemuel Hoten: 2 males 16+; 2 males under 16; 3 females.
B. Meritt: "But this was before the formation of Otsego County and Worcester Township, and the association of names before and after lemuel Hoten in the census of 1790 shows that in fact he was living in Worcester in that year, whither, as we believe, he had come directly from Westminister in Massachusetts during the preceding year. His family consisted of himself, a son of 16 years or older, two sons under 16, his wife, and two daughters. As the family reveals itself in successive census records it appears that the older boy was born probably more than a scant 16 years before 1790 and that he cannot have been Elijah5, because Elijah5 was already married and had children before 1790."..." We tentatively suggest that the older boy in Lemuel's family in Worcester in 1790 was born about 1771. The two girls were Dinah5 and Olive5 (bis); one of the younger sons was Lemuel5, and the other younger boy was probably Luke5 Houghton, who appears separately in the census of 1800..."
