Narrative:

     Mary Lathrop was born on 10 Jul 1789 in Vermont.6,7,8 She was probably one of the five females listed in the household of her father, Thomas Lathrop, in the 1790 Federal Census of Wells, Rutland Co., Vermont.13 She was probably one of the two females age 10 to 15 listed in the household of her father, Thomas Lathrop, in the 1800 Federal Census of Shelburne, Chittenden Co., Vermont.14 She married Chester Root, widower of her older sister Betsey, and son of Elisha Root and Lucy Matton, on 4 Jul 1814.9,10,11
     She was probably the female age 26 to 45 listed in the household of her husband, Chester Root, in the 1820 Federal Census of Williston, Chittenden Co., Vermont.15
     At some point between 1820 and 1850 Chester and Mary moved south to Addison Co., Vermont. Just when is not clear since no evidence of where they were living in between has been found. (See map.) She and Chester appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of Monkton, Addison Co., Vermont, enumerated 30 Aug 1850, reporting real estate valued at $4,000.16
     Chester and Mary moved between 1850 and 1860 to Palmyra, in northwestern New York, and where their son Thomas and his family were living. Chester and Mary appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Palmyra, Wayne Co., New York, in the household of Thomas Lathrop Root and Mary Sophia Gordon, their son and his wife.17 Mary appeared on the 1870 Federal Census of Palmyra, Wayne Co., New York, in the household of Thomas Lathrop Root and Mary Sophia Gordon, her son and his wife.18

  13. [S2499] Thomas Lathrop household, 1790 U.S. Census, Rutland Co., Vermont, number of females is overwritten, apparently with a five and six, with the five appearing to be later. Since this census was actually taken after Vermont became a state in 1791, I am assuming this is because Nancy, who was born in Nov 1791 was initially counted and then excluded.
