  • Notes 
    • "Town of Spafford" Onodaga Historical Assoc. Dehler Press, 1917, UofC: F129.S75C7.
      Indicates Spafford has a Ripley Hill. Next to Skaneateles Lake. First settler: Gilbert Palmer in 1794. Was County of Tryon, then Montgomery, then Herkimer, then Onondaga (1794). Spafford created 1811. Jonathan Ripley settled in Spafford after 1806 (p. 22). p. 55: Jonathan Ripley and John L. Ripley both subscribed to Spafford Union Meeting House Society for church building, each $5, April 30, 1838.

      1800 Census, Rensselaer, Hoosick, p. 761:
      Ripley, Jonathan 40010 1001000
      4M< 10 (Joshua, James, John, +?), 1M 26-45 (Jonathan), 1F<10 (Rebecca), 1F 26-45 (Ruth)

      1810: No Jonathan Ripley found that fits quite right.

      1820 Spafford, Onondaga, NY Census, p. 221 Jonathan Ripley, 110101 2110203, 1M<10 (Silas), 1M10-15 (David?), 1M16-25 (Whitman), 1M>45 (Jonathan), 2F<10 (Maria + ?), 1F10-15 (Elsie), 1F16-25 (Meribah), 2F>45 (Ruth + ?), 3(? could be 2) engaging in agriculture.

      1830 Spafford, Onondaga, NY Census, p. 345:
      Jonathan Ripley 2M15-20 (Silas + ?),1M60-70 (Jonathan),1F15-20 (Maria),1F50-60 (Ruth),1F80-90 (?)
      The following are probably Jonathan's sons:
      John L. Ripley 2M<5,1M30-40,1F<5,1F20-30
      James Ripley 2M<5,1M5-10,1M30-40,2F<5,1F5-10,1F20-30.

      1840 Spafford, Onondaga, NY Census, p. 413, line 12: Jonathan Ripley, 1M10-15 (?), 1M20-30 (could be Silas), 1M40-50 (?), 1M60-70 (Jonathan), 1F60-70 (Ruth), 1F90-100 (?), total 6, 3 agriculture.

      Probably Jonathan's son:
      p. 413, line 11: John L. Ripley 2M<10, 2M5-10, 2M10-15, 1M40-50, 1F10-15, 1F30-40, Total 9, 1 agriculture.

      There is an older woman in the family in the 1830 (age 80-90) and 1840 (90-100) censuses. Perhaps a mother of Jonathan or Ruth. Priscella, Jonathan's mother would have been 85 in 1830 and 95 in 1840. We do not know when her husband, David Ripley died.
