The mystery of Ezekiel Mayo

Updated: Jan 23, 2022

Continuing my search for the lineage of Ezekiel Mayo, I would like to propose that of the three known lines mentioned in my previous post, it seems most probable that Ezekiel was the son of Edmund Mayo who was the 3rd great-grandson of Rev. John Mayo of Barnstable, Mass.


Lydia Mayo was the wife of Charles Decker. (They were the parents of Mary ("Delaphina") Decker who married William Henry Dickinson). Lydia was the daughter of Oscar Mayo, who was the son of Raymond H. Mayo, who was the son of Ezekiel Mayo. Ezekiel is said to have been born abt. 1800 (age 50 in 1850 according to census) in New York and moved to Great Bend, Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, in 1832. He married Rebecca Hazard.

Rebecca was the daughter of Edward Hazard and Deborah Ballard. She lived from 1801-1872. Edward was born in Kingston, Rhode Island. They are buried in Great Bend, PA.

In the index of "The Reverend John Mayo, genealogy", there is one Mayo named Ezekiel. He was born abt. 1791, and was the son of Edmund Mayo (1758- ), who is detailed on p. 102-103, as follows:

Edmund's ancestry is given on page iv.
