    Notes 
    • Submitter’s notes: James Sencabaugh (1804 - 1898) was the seventh child and sixth son of William Sencabaugh, the Loyalist, and his wife Ruhamah Hugh or Hughes. In 1830 he married Charlotte Brehaut (1810 - 1895), a daughter of Henry Matthew Brehaut and Elizabeth Pullem, who had emigrated from Guernsey in 1806.
      James’ sons William (twin to Henry) and David apparently died in infancy. Of the four sons who survived to adulthood, three (Henry, John Thomas, and James) moved to Cleveland, Ohio, leaving only Benjamin as heir to the family homestead.
