Benjamin SIAS, Sr.
Susannah __?__
ATTENTION:  I'm seeking a patrilineal descendant of our subject for Y-DNA testing.  I am offering to fund a 67-marker Y-DNA test of this individual (this is over $200 worth of DNA testing!).  Conditions are 1) that the individual is a male surnamed SIAS (or close variation) who descends in a direct male line from this Benjamin SIAS; 2) that the individual's patrilineal line genealogy is shared with me in sufficient detail that I am convinced the connection to Benjamin is valid; 3) that this individual join the SEARS Project hosted by WorldFamilies.net, which means being tested by FamilyTreeDNA; and 4) that the individual sign the Release allowing sharing of his results, including upload to Ysearch (a public database sponsored by FTDNA).  Note that sharing of results does not necessarily mean sharing of one's identity (beyond, obviously, sharing it with me).  If you are interested, please contact me.

1.  Letter, dated 19 Jun 1858, from Keziah (GREENLAND) SHANAFELT (click her link for a full transcription) of Clarion Co., PA, to her son, Thomas.  Keziah is a granddaughter of Benjamin & Sarah (SIAS) CORBIN.  The letter is in the possession of  Laurel Shanafelt Powell of Colorado, and Lorinda Clendenon Greenland generously posted a transcription at her web site. 
My mother's father was Benjamin Corbin; her mother Sarah Sias.  I think they both came from England.  Their ancestors lived in England where some of them still remain...  Grandmother had two brothers -- Joseph and Benjamin Sias.  I remember seeing them many years ago. They moved to Ohio...
Unfortunately, there was no 1800 census in Ohio
