Notes for Sheffield Langworthy (1775)
The Town Records of Ferrisburg, Vermont have the following references to Sheffield:

* In March, 1796 Sheffield Langworthy was sworn in as a freeman of Ferrisburg.

* At a town meeting on May 9, 1803 the freemen of Ferrisburg voted for a representative to Congress. Sheffield attested that the vote was “duly taken, sorted and counted”.

* On March 5, 1810, the constables of Ferrisburg were ordered to warn “Sheffield Langworthy and family now residing in said town to Depart sd town forthwith”.

* The town records provides “a list of children whose ages admit of a dividend of the public money for the year 1811 March”. This seems to be a list of all heads of household and the number of their children in a certain age group. Sheffield Langworthy had 7 children. The list for 1812 shows he had 5. He does not appear on lists for 1813 through 1815.

It’s hard to know just what these entries mean. But WFL says that one of his children, Eliza, was born in Charlotte, Vermont in 1809, so perhaps the family had moved from Ferrisburg and was less than welcome when they returned in 1810. They were still in Ferrisburg in 1811 and 1812, but probably left after that.
