I looked into the Henry Platner/Lucy Colony possible my last trip to the library, but looks as if Henry Platner married Lucinda Nobles on 27 Jan 1830 in Delaware County, NY. (LDS Microfilm 860,311 Item 1, page 18). Henry and Lucinda (Lucy) had at least 1 daughter married in Delhi, Delaware County, NY, Sophronia Platner married George Hughes on 19 Dec 1849.

Note: Mary Ann COLONY (1823-1904) is a candidate for being a daughter of Joseph or a niece. However, she's not listed in DW Colony petition, so niece is probably more likely. Do further research to find her parents.

Info from Calvin Ingram [cingram@inficad.com].
I had another Masonville, Delaware County, New York "Colony" listed in some written notes that had not been placed in the computer. Some of the info is from ancestry.com records, and I have not looked into how accurate the information is.

Mary (Ann or C) Colony -
Born - December 04, 1823 in Masonville, Delaware County, New York.
Died - June 16, 1904 in Springfield, Bradford County, Pennsylvania
Married to George William Pettingill on January 11, 1845 in Daggett, Jackson Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania.
George was born September 13, 1804 in Providence, Providence County, Rhode Island. He died September 30, 1892 in Springfield, Bradford County, Pennsylvania
I cannot confirm these exact dates, but find a George W. and Mary C Pettingell listed in the Leona Cemetery, Jackson Township, Tioga County, Pennsyvania. The cemetery information only gives the years these two were born. George looks to be correct listed as 1804-1892. Mary's middle name is C on this transcription not Ann. She is listed as 1822-1904. This not uncommon.
I cannot find any Colony's in this Township, but do find the Seely's, whom my Henry Colony's wife belongs to. The 1840 township census may show Colony's, but the 1850 Township census does not.
Henry Colony Jr was located nearby, on the Tioga County, (Tioga Township) Pennsyvania federal census in 1850.
Thought you may want this info, as it fits into Joseph Colony's timeframe, and may give you locations to look into.

I am placing your Joseph Colony with the Henry Colony family of mine (with a note stating that this is not proven out) (Just too many coincidences)
I am also placing the Knox County, Ohio John Colony (bn Dec 1820 in Delaware County, NY) with your Joseph Colony (with a note stating this is not proven) (more for my benefit, as I try to find some ties)
I am placing Mary Ann Colony wife of George Pettingill with your Joseph Colony. (also stating this is not proven) George was from Rhode Island and this make me wonder if our elder Henry Colony may have married a member of this family, after his first wife died.

Here is some rough theory, but it shapes up well:

1820 - Joseph Colony listed in Masonville, Delaware County, New York census.
           2 males age 0-10       (Likely Leonard & John Colony born between 1810-1820)
           1 male age 16-26       (This would be Joseph Colony)
           1 female age 16-26.   (This would be Linda Beals)

1830 - Joseph Colony listed in Masonville, Delaware County, New York census.
           1 male age 0-5          (likely D. W. Colony born between 1825-1830)
           1 male age 5-10        (likely John Colony, bn Dec 1820  - born 1820-1825)
           1 male age 10-15      (likely Leonard Colony bn Feb 1814 - born 1815-1820)
           1 male age 30-40      (This would be Joseph Colony)
           2 females age 0-5     (likely Lucy Colony born between 1825-1830)
           2 females age 5-10   (likely Mary Ann Colony born between 1820-1825)
           1 female age 30-40   (This would be Linda Beals)

1830 - Henry Colony listed in Ledyard, Cayuga County, New York census.
           1 male age 15-20       (likely Henry Colony born between 1810-1815)
           3 males age 10-15     (likely Charles, Elijah, and George born between 1815-1820)
           1 male age 50-60      (This would be Henry Colony - born between 1770-1780)
           1 female age 20-30    (Unknown at this time 1800-1810)
           1 female age 30-40   (This would be first unknown wife, bn NJ).

Note: __ ___ ____ Other Colony leads to follow.

Ancestral File - Arthur Lamonte Colony born abt 1805 Peekskill, Westchester, NY - wife Anne Eliza Mandeville - submitter = Terry M Mandeville 1933 NE 124th St Kirkland WA 98034 (206) 823-8018. DAR vol 47 pg 185. Marr in Westchester Co. Distant cousin so she's not working on this line. Most info from Gen Record of the Mandeville Family by Weltha Woodward which is on film SLC 00003902.

New York Counties that Colon(e)y's are in per IGI - Orleans (974.791), Clinton (974.75), Saratoga (974.748).

Camel and Cammel families are found in Rensselaer County so check there for Cordelia background?

IGI - Catharine Cammel married David Bulson 5 Jan 1845 Cooperstown, Otsego, NY batch 712770698 source film 538965 - Check source to see if person submitted (not an extract of something) as Leonard has daughter Hannah Colony who married a Bulson and Cordelia's name was Camel. Too much of a coincidence to pass up.

Connelly Van Valkenbury showed a Charles M Colony born 1809 possibly in Delaware NY. Marr 1 prior 1840 in Chenango NY. Marr 2 circa 1842 in Bradford Co PA. He pretty thoroughly searched Bradford County and found nothing on Leonard. However, Leonard was back and forth to PA so maybe there's a connection.

Mary C. Colony of Homer, Cortland, NY does not seem to be connected.
