I have ruled out d/o Wm Straw and Polly Roberts/Robarts [they married 1813]

Was she a d/o Valentine Jr and Eunice Taylor? [they married Apr 1807 and in the 1810 census there is a female born 1800-1810 unaccounted for] Other researchers claim she was a d/o Deacon David Straw and his first wife Sarah Smith but I find no evidence of any children from this union...Deacon David moved to Waterbury, VT and married Mary Cady in 1795 and they did have a daughter named Mary born 1803 in Waterbury but she married in 1829 and again in 1844 and died in Indiana. The Deacon David household in Waterbury, VT in 1810 had 2 females born 1800-1810 but they are accounted for as daughters Mary born 1803 and daughter Sarah born 1805. Valentine did relocate to Duxbury, VT [proximal to Waterbury] in 1830 and one of his sons [Laban] married and lived in Duxbury, VT....there appears to be a connection there...
