Biographical Information

  • Christened 10 Apr 1791 in Amherst, MA
  • Chester Elmer, Sr., with his father, Elijah Elmer (who was a native of Massachusetts), came with his family to the town of Addison, in 1802, and bought a farm which is still owned by his descendants.
  • He was a successful farmer.



  • Mercy's last name sometimes listed as "Goodell".
  • Ester's last name sometimes listed as "Strong" rather than Smith.
  • The Sequoyah link didn't actually give all that much additional info about Chester himself, but it includes a pedigree that goes back thousands of years all the way to the Biblical Adam and includes hundreds of kings. And yes, I know the quality of that data, but I wanted to capture it as a source, cause it will be much fun going through it all as I get further back in the generations.
  • Note that this is Chester Elmer Sr, as distinguished from his son Chester Elmer Jr
  • Some source give Harriet's last name as "Severance" rather than Johnson
  • Mother also listed as "Murcy Goode"
  • Note father is Elijah Elmer Sr, there is also an Elijah Elmer Jr who would have been one of Chester's brothers.
  • Lucretia also known as "Crucy"
  • Chester Elmer's mother Mercy Goodale and Lucretia Wright's mother Eleanor Goodale were sisters, making Lucretia and Chester first cousins.
