Family of Smith, Ephraim Jr and Weaver, Mary

Married Husband Smith, Ephraim Jr ( * 1788-05-23 + 1860 )

Fortunately, able to track Ephraim Smith (a very common name then) by close family ties to the Weavers. 2 sons married Weavers too. Neighbor of Caleb Weaver. I believe the association goes way back thru their fathers to Kent Co, RI:
1771: Caleb Weaver b. 1771 Coventry, RI
178?: Ephraim Smith Jr born in NY
1790: Ephraim Smith Sr in RI
Caleb Weaver Sr in Warwick, Kent Co, RI
1791-1794 Weavers and Smiths in Brattleboro, VT
1797: Caleb Weaver Sr m. Hannah Franklin
1800: Ephraim Smith Sr in Northumberland, Saratoga Co, NY
Caleb Weaver Sr in Greenfield, Saratoga Co, NY
1810: Ephraim Smith Sr in Greenfield, Saratoga Co, NY
Caleb Weaver Sr in Greenfield, Saratoga Co, NY
1818: Caleb Weaver Sr said to have moved to Arkwright, Chautauqua Co, NY (but not in 1820 Census)
1820: Ephraim Smith Jr in Stafford, Genesee Co ; I see his first 4 boys there - Daniel, William, Andrew, Jesse
Caleb Weaver Jr? in Stafford (note: Stafford formed March 24, 1820 from Le Roy and Batavia)
1822: Simeon Smith, jr and Caleb Weaver's sons purchase land in Arkwright
1823: approx. 5th son born - Royal
1825: Caleb Weaver in Villenova, Chautauqua Co,NY - but not Ephraim yet!
1830: Ephraim Smith's whole family (5 boys/1 girl) + Mary Weaver in Arkwright, Chautauqua Co, NY
(note - Caleb probably didn't move; Arkwright formed from parts of Villenova & Pomfret in 1829)
1840: "A J Smith" + wife + 2 daughters in Arkwright. Next door are William & Royal.
In Rockdale, Crawford Co, PA Daniel + Harriet Gage next door to Richard Gage
No trace of Ephraim.

===> no proof that Ephraim Smith, Sr is our Ephraim Smith's father! Caleb Weaver, Jr is son of Caleb Weaver, Sr
Also possible, In 1820 Stafford, NY, an older Moses Smith (b.1760-1770) and large family of boys lives not far from Ephraim.
This Moses Smith however is still in MA in 1790 census. In 1810, Greenfield Saratoga, matching Smith families are Ephraim Smith, William Smith (3 doors from Caleb!), and a John Smith. In 1800, the Ephraim in Northumberland and a William Smith in Ballston have a son of the right age. The William Smith, neighbor of Caleb Weaver in 1810, married Catherine Comstock and was born 6 Apr 1780 in Smithfield, R.I. d.10 Apr 1871.

Daughter not listed in Lucius Weaver's Genealogy - found in 1830 census only. Too young to be servant so conclude daughter. She is living with brother William in 1840 census.

In the Lucius Weaver genealogy, he lists the children of Ephraim and Mary Smith like this:
1.Royal D
5.William C

In 1820 Census, several older males I cannot account for - Ephraim's brothers?
4m<10 m16-18 2m16-26 m26-45 f26-45 and 3 workers in agriculture.

In 1830 Census, the whole family:
1m5-10 2m10-15 2m15-20 m40-49 1f<5 1f30-40
