North Dakota Death Cert Index says MARTIN, JULIA F died 05/11/1956 in Stark Co., FEMALE 84 Years born 07/17/1871 North Dakota Resident Golden Valley Co. The 1900 US Census for Billings County, ND gives her birth year as 1871.

There was a Julia Farmer in Wilton, Monroe, Wisconsin who was two years old in 1870 and eleven years old in 1880 Censuses. This may be her. If so, what is her birth date?

64 (Research):Presumed the daughter of Ludwig Kling and Anna Frantz. Kling, Magdalena (I638)
 
65 (Research):Ruth Stebbins has addressed the idenitity of John Simmons' father. She believes that the history given in "Moses Simmons" by L. A. Simmons is incorrect, as explained in "JohnSimmonsFatherNotes.pdf". (I think the book "Moses Simmons" is probably "The History History of the Simmons Family from Moses Simmons, 1st. (Moyses Symonson)
Ship Fortune 1621 by Lorenzo Albert Simmons, Lincoln, Nebraska , 1930).

John's birthdate needs investigation. The Jonathon Simmons ancestors family tree gives it as 1671 but the handwritten notes as 1667 or 8.

Annis - "Annis (Austin) Littlefield age 38 and 6 children sailed on the Bevis of So. Hampton for New England in May 1638 at the same time Richard Austin of Bishopstoke, Hants and his family sailed. With her came John Knight, carpenter and Heugh Deudal, servants." (from Austin Families Assn of America (AFAOA) ) (Sources: - 1) (Sources: - 2)

Annis - "Joseph had a sister Annis who mar. Edmund Littlefield, who came to New England in 1638. Francis of Dedham and Matthew of Maine are thought by some authorities to be brothers of Joseph. It is thought by some that Richard of Charlestown might have been another brother but proof is lacking.

85 Acknowledgements: I thank Frank Martin and Mary Lou Finn for their contributions to my knowledge of the early generations of the Martin and Green Families. I have had very interesting e-mail discussion with each of them. Frank pointed me to information on Rensselaerville and provided documents on Samuel's land in Ontario. Frank also provided information on Silas Martin, as did Mary Lou.  Martin, Samuel (I27)
 
86 Note on Stephentown, Petersburgh and Little Hoesack
Before 1784 -- Most of what is now Rensselaer County was the East Manor of Rensselaerwyck, and the vast majority of the land belonged to the Van Rensselaer family. It was part of Albany County.
1784 -- The East Manor was divided into two parts; the eastern part, bordering on Massachusetts, became the Division of Stephen Town, and the western part, bordering on the Hudson River, became the Division of Rensselaerwyck.
1788 -- The Town of Stephentown was established. Parts of Stephentown were included in Petersburgh (1791), Berlin (1806) and Nassau (1806) when they were formed.
1791 -- The Town of Petersburgh was established. Parts of Peterburgh were included in the towns of Berlin, Nassau and Grafton (1807) when they were formed.
1791 -- Rensselaer County was formed from Albany County on 7 Feb 1791.

Little Hoesack may refer to a settlement along the Little Hoosick River or to the river itself, as settlers lived throughout the Little Hoosick Valley. The Little Hoosick flows north through the Towns of Berlin, Petersburgh, and Hoosick in Rensselaer County. Little Hoosick appears on the 1767 map of the Manor of Rensselaerwyck by Jno. R. Bleeker.  
Tanner, Nathan (I132)
 
87 Research: The problem of Samuel's ancestors.

The only record I know for Samuel's birth year is his grave monument, which gives his date and age at death (73 years).

It is possible Samuel was born or raised in Lanesboro, Massachusetts. Samuel's wife's family (the Greenes) lived in Lanesboro and probably neighboring Cheshire after it was formed, and Silence's sister Huldah married Samuel Baker in Lanesboro. (See the History of town of Lanesborough, Massachusetts, 1741-1905 [Book on Ancestry.com]) Five of the Greene siblings (Levi, Rowland, Huldah, Silence and Mary) and their families moved to Rensselaerville, New York; all were in the 1790 US Census for Rensselaerville.

Our Samuel did live in Massachusetts, as his son Silas was born there circa 1783 [See Silas Martin (I533).]

One candidate to be our Samuel's father is Captain Samuel Martin, the second settler of Lanesborough. Capt. Samuel Martin is the same person as the Samuel Martin (b 1722; I29 on this site) of Cothren's History of Ancient Woodbury, who married Ann Hurd and was the father of a Samuel Martin bapt. 1758. However, there is no documentary evidence connecting our Samuel to Capt. Samuel.

There was a Samuel Martin of Lanesborough who was in the Revolutionary War. The record of this Samuel Martin in All Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors in the War of the Revolution, 17 Vols. (Appendix IX) reads "Martin, Samuel, Lanesborough. Receipt dated Lauesborough, April 23, 1781, for bounty paid said Martin by Gideon Wheler, on behalf of the town of Lanesborough, to serve in the Continental Army for the term of 3 years; also, descriptive list dated Lenox, Aug. 20, 1781, of men raised in Berkshire Co., agreeable to resolve of Dec. 2, 1780, and delivered to William Walker, Superintendent for said county; Capt. Brown's co., Col. Simonds's regt.; age, 28 yrs. [i.e. b. 1753]; stature, 5 ft. 7 in.; complexion, freckled; hair, sandy; occupation, laborer; residence, Lanesborough; enlisted for town of Lanesborough; enlistment, 3 years; receipted for by Capt. Smith." Thus, the soldier Samuel Martin would be too old to be our Samuel, if the record in Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors and on our Samuel's grave monument are both correct. Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors listed seven Samuel Martins as Revolutionary War Soldiers.
 
Martin, Samuel (I27)
 
88 Who were David Benjamin Knapp's parents? A. A. Knapp's Nicholas Knapp Genealogy indicates that David Knapp (G-428, p. 274) had a son David (no birth date) who married Hannah Osborne about 1840. However, the evidence is not consistent with this relationship, and David's(G-428) brother Solomon appears to be David Benjamin's father. David Benjamin was born about 1813, but there was no male child of the correct age in David Knapp's (G-428) household in either the 1820 or 1830 US Censuses for Mayfield. Furthermore, David Benjamin was not named in David's (G-428) will. On the other hand, the 1820 and 1830 US Censuses show that Solomon Knapp's household included a male child of the correct age to be David Benjamin, and David Knapp and Axey Holbrook of Wisconsin were named in the heirs and next of kin section of Solomon Knapp's probate papers, although neither received a bequest in Solomon's will. (Achsa Holbrook and her sons lived with David Benjamin and Hannah Osborn Knapp for many years in Rockland, Manitowoc, Wisconsin.) This evidence suggests that David Benjamin was descended from Solomon Knapp rather than Solomon's brother David (G-428).

Other evidence is consistent with Solomon's paternal relationship with David Benjamin. The 1830 census lists Isaac Orsborn, David B.'s future father-in-law, just three households away from Solomon, and property records confirm that Solomon and Isaac were neighbors. Also, after he was married, David B. Knapp owned land in the same lots in Mayfield where Solomon owned land, and at least one of those parcels (in lot 229) appears to have been owned previously by Solomon.

A. A. Knapp's book and its supplement say that Solomon had a son David, born 1793, who married Amy (or Hannah or Ruth) Holbrook and had a son (Douw?). If true, this David could have been David Benjamin's father and Solomon could have been David B.'s grandfather. I have found no evidence of a David and Amy. There was a David Knapp b. abt. 1790-92 and wife Hannah living in Gloversville, Fulton, New York in 1850 and 1870 (US Censuses). However, they were not mentioned in either Solomon's or David's (G-428) will. The ancestry of the Gloversville David is unknown.

Considering all of this evidence, I have concluded that Solomon Knapp is most likely David Benjamin's father.

96 A Reuben Martin played in a baseball-like game on 4 Jun 1838 between Beachville and the Zorras, a team from the nearby township of Zorra and North Oxford. This probably was our Reuben. Most of the players are said to have been 15 - 24 years old, but the ages of several are unknown and one was called 'Old Ned' Dolson. Our Reuben would have been about 36, clearly not too old to enjoy a game.  Martin, Reuben (I543)
