1. EBENEZER CALHOUN was born 1741 at N. Stratford (now Trumbull), Fairfield Co. CT. All of Ebenezer's nine children were born before the family left their home in Washington, Litchfield, CT. By 1800 they relocated to Frankfort, just over the border from Litchfield, Herkimer county. Ebenezer and his oldest surviving son Chauncey are recorded in the 1800 census of Frankfort under the name CAHOON. The obituary of Ebenezer's daughter Marilla notes that the family settled about three-quarters of a mile north of Norwich Corners (Litchfield) NY, in what was then an almost unbroken wilderness. Ebenezer joined the Congregational Society church at Norwich Corners on June 2, 1801. He and Dolly died there in 1825. By 1830 their children had left Herkimer county altogether.
