      What I have is a series of items that connects the family.
      1) Luther Case's headstone indicates his family was from CT, and born
      around 1788-1789.
      2) He was a widower when he married Chloe Sisson in 1823.
      3) I have received a copy of a letter he wrote to his sister Lucy Northway, mentioning a sister Esther Knowles, and a sister Rachel still in VT. (Lucy later named
      children Luther & Tryphena).
      4) Luther Case married Tryphena Parmalee in Chittenden, VT abt 1808.
      5) I found reference on IGI connecting Luther Case as the son of Benejah & Lydia. It was not listed under Births, but Misc. - abt 1788 - though it states he was
      born in Chittenden, VT.
      5) I have the children of Benejah and Lydia: Abijah (died as infant); Benejah, Lydia, Levi, Abijah, Esther, Lucy, Luther, & Rachel.
