Notes for Betsey Ranville?
Ranville, Renvill or perhaps Reynolds (see below).

Because vital records from this time and place are in short supply, there is no proof that Betsey was the wife of Chester Langworthy.

I’ve tried to use available records, primarily censuses and cemetery records, to piece together a story about about Betsey and her family. It shows them starting in White Creek, Washington Co., NY, moving to North Adams, Bennington Co., NY and then to Cavendish, Windsor Co., VT.

Betsey first married Chester Langworthy of White Creek, NY. They had children, among whom were Chester Jr and John. Chester Sr died before 1845.

Betsey then married John H Carlton of White Creek. They had Charles, born in NY ca 1847, and then the family moved to North Adams, MA where they had Horatio in 1852.

Chester Jr married in 1853 and was also living in North Adams with his wife in 1855. He seems to have made his home there.

John Langworthy moved to Cavendish where he married Abby Barnard in 1856.

John Carlton, Betsey, Charles and Horatio were in North Adams for the 1860 census but seem to have moved to Cavendish shortly afterward, because John Carlton enlisted in the Vermont Infantry there in January, 1862. Chester Jr and John Langworthy enlisted together in Cavendish in August, 1862.

John Carlton, Betsey Carlton, John Langworthy and Abby Langworthy are all buried in the Cavendish Village Cemetery. Chester Jr is buried in the military cemetery in Bennington.

The marriage record of Horatio Carlton (May 24, 1873 in VT) says that his mother’s name was Betsey Rainville, though the record is very hard to read. Findagrave says that her maiden name was Reynolds, but there is no gravestone and the source, “Cemeteries of Cavendish, VT” is reputed to have some errors.
