People seem fixated on the Woodstock location, I guess to affirm the connection to Clement.

Louisa has to be Amanda's mother, Lodamia (RATHBONE) CORBIN.  Frank CORBIN appears to be son of Amanda's brother, Eli Lyon CORBIN.  Lavenia HAMLIN appears to be the orphaned daughter of Amanda's sister, Lavinia (CORBIN) HAMLIN.  I don't know who Mary is.
