3. Stephen Twitchell, b. 25 Jun 1753 Sherborn, Middlesex Co., MA. (377), d. 12 Sep 1845 in Windham, Windham Co., VT. (298) Stephen m. Lucy Norcross 22 May 1779 in Dublin, Cheshire Co., NH. She was b. between 1755 and 1765. The Twitchell Genealogy states Stephen and family moved to New York sometime after 1789 but Stephen is found on the 1790 Census of Cheshire, NH and there is no Stephen Twitchell found on the 1800 and 1810 U.S.. Census of New York. There is however a Stephen Twitchell on the 1797 Census of Andover, Windham Co., VT. and again on the 1800 and 1810 U.S. Census of Andover. A comparison of the ages of the children on the 1800 census with the known ages of Stephen's children shows enough similarity to make it almost certain that this was Stephen, the son of Gershom. Also on the 1800 Census of Andover were Stephen's younger brother Sawin and his nephew Luther Twitchell, the son of Gershom Jr.
