Grandchildren of Ann Barnum/Lois Barnum and Nehemiah Gregory

"Nehemiah Gregory II (son of Nehemiah I), died 1770. Descendants say he married Ann Barnum of Kent, Connecticut. Vital records have the marriage as October 3, 1759 for Nehemiah Gregory and Lois Barnum, who may have been his second wife, sister of first. He moved by 1755 to Gregory Point, New York [actually CT; see note following], where Jehiel was born. By 21 Aug 1770, he lived in Bedford, Westchester Co., NY, where he appears to have mortgaged land there to John Concklin and Jesse Lyon. Gregory Point may have been in Bedford." -- Ancestors and Descendants of Henry Gregory (see page at right). Note that Ann could not have been a (full) sister to Lois, as her father Jehiel Barnum married Marah Ferrey/Berry in 1741; Ann is older. It is possible that Jehiel had a first marriage that produced Ann, but no supporting evidence has been located. Jehiel Barnum died in 1758, after Jehiel Gregory was born ~1755. Unfortunately, Jehiel Barnum did not write a will as he reputedly died in an accident; clearly he would have mentioned his namesake grandson, only child of a deceased daughter, if this had been the case.

Nehemiah is known to have died prior to his father Nehemiah: Oct. 31, 1770, Nehemiah I signed his will, giving his Cranbury dwelling to his son Stephen, adjoining land of Denton Gregory; mentions his wife Elizabeth, son Daniel, surviving children of his son Nehemiah, and daughters Ruth and Olive. Lois Barnum is thought to have been deceased by then too, although I have not ascertained why other researchers are certain of this. It is unknown who raised the three Gregory orphans, although it seems likely that they stayed in Bedford, NY, as Nehemiah Gregory III says he was born there on August 29, 1862 and still lived there prior to enlisting as a Patriot in July 1779.

Note: Genealogist William Perry Hay (1871-1947 - descendant of Elizabeth Gregory Howsmon) researched (92,93,94,95,96) the locale of Gregory Point in the 1930s and 1940s, to determine whether it was in NY or CT. He concluded there is only one Gregory Point, and it is in CT not NY -- located at the east side of the mouth of Norwalk River in Fairfield County, CT. A very short distance up this river are the towns of South Norwalk on the west side and East Norwalk on the east side of the river; two or three miles above is the town of Norwalk.

Gregory Point USGS Norwalk South Quad, Connecticut, Topographic Map. Gregory Point is a Cape in the state of Connecticut (county of Fairfield), located at latitude - longitude coordinates (also known as lat-long or GPS coordinates) of N 41.08704 and W -73.40151. Gregory Point is shown in the center of the topographic (topo) map, which is sourced from the United States Geographical Survey map USGS Norwalk South quad. The nearest major town is East Norwalk, CT.

It may be impossible to find documentary evidence as to the identity of Jehiel's mother, Nehemiah's first wife. Unless mentioned in a will, there often are not records that remain for women, who are not identified on the census (unless they are heads of households) or own land, which usually is only as an older widow. Both the names Jehiel and Annis come from the Barnum line; they are not found in the ancestors of Nehemiah Gregory II -- this could be a clue, however, there are two Jehiel Gregorys born ~1755 in CT, so this is not as definitive as it would appear. Since Ann died at a young age, she may not be mentioned in any will, further complicating research. Birth and death records from this period are incomplete, complicating research further still. It is expected that the certainty of Jehiel Gregory's grandchildren that their great-grandmother's name was Ann Barnum was not a confusion with his second wife being Lois Barnum; Jehiel's wife (Elizabeth Andrews Gregory) lived to age 99 in 1857, and should have been certain of her mother-in-law's name -- it is assumed that the grandchildren's stories originated with her.

Note that early female mortality, especially in childbirth, was not uncommon at this time. It was also not uncommon for the widower to marry a younger sister of his deceased wife, especially when there was a child. This would have been even more likely if the child had been named for the deceased wife's father.

----------2b. Luther S. Gregory (1829 Bloomville,Delaware,NY-<1900 South Bend,IN) married Elizabeth Unknown (~1847 OH-) -- 1+ child (census: 1880
----------2b. Marietta Gregory (6/20/1841 Bloomville,Delaware,NY-6/22/1929 Oneonta,Delaware,NY)(Bloomville cemetery) married George E. Scott (8/28/1835-12/24/1901 Oneonta,Delaware,NY) -- 2 children (census: 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920)
----------2b. Charles P. Gregory (1848 Kortright,Delaware,NY-3/19/1893 Stillwater,MN) married Ida B. Coombs (widow Gaskill; stepdaughter Anne Inez Gaskill)(6/1852 ME-<1930 CA?) -- Charles practiced law in IL and also in MN where he formed a partnership with his uncle, Judge Edmund Butts; was elected to legislature. -- no children (census: 1880-note that Charles is living in rooming house where Ida lived, 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930)

----------2b. Edmund G. Butts (~1831 NY-)
----------2b. Elizabeth Butts (~1834 NY-)
----------2b. William Butts (~1836 NY-)
----------2b. Nehemiah Butts (~1838 NY-)

----------2b. Caleb Sheldon Butts (~1844 NY-)
----------2b. James H. Butts (~1847 NY-)
----------2b. Mary Butts (~1851 NY-)
But the Henry Gregory descendants book at right has 10 children listed as: Amasa, Sheldon, Harvey, Henry, George, Molly, Dwight, Florence, Adele and Millicent; I cannot locate a Butts family on any census data with these 10 children -- and this is not even close to the 10 listed above on the census data; I believe the census data. Curiously, no census data can be located for the parents or children after 1860 even though they are expected in Kortright as of 1889.
-----2a. Isaac Gregory (2/1/1810 Kortright,Delaware,NY-2/12/1887 Jefferson,Schoharie,NY)(pneumonia) married Maria Fuller (9/22/1817 VT-2/12/1887 Jefferson,Schoharie,NY)(heart attack;Stamford cemetery) -- owned land in Stamford,NY; blacksmith; in 1855 bought 2 farms in Schoharie Co., NY, one was his homestead.-- 9 children (census: 1840, 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880)

E, 3rd NY Cav.; When his brother Howard was captured, he escaped by hanging to stirup of his swimming horse. -- 8 children (census: 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930)

----------2b. Adeliza Marie Gregory (12/23/1847 Stamford,Delaware,NY-11/12/1925 Stamford,Delaware,NY) married Samuel Coley G. Maynard (~1843 NY-) -- 2 children (census: 1870, 1880, 1900?, 1910?, 1920?)
----------2b. John Peck Gregory (12/9/1849 Stamford,Delaware,NY-Hobart,Stamford,Delaware, NY) married Sarah J. Champlain (2/18/1847-Hobart,Stamford,Delaware,NY) -- rancher in KS in 1880s, returned to NY by 1900 where he was farmer, assessor, trustee at M.E. church. -- 2 children (census: 1880. 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930)

-----2a. Cynthia? Gregory (? Kortright,Delaware,NY-?) married Unknown Storm -- 1 child
----------2b. Milton Storm (born prior to 1841)
Can't find Cynthia Storm on any census data, or a confirmed child Milton. The best possibility I found on the 1850 census was Lydia A. Storm in Schoharie county, age 32 (b.~1818 which would make her mother ~48 at her birth) married to minister Martin J. Storm, 43, with three children -- James 10, Martin 5 and George 1 (census: 1850 p2). Note that John Colby Gregory (b. 1907, son of Amasa J. Gregory and grandson of Isaac Gregory) who supplied this information for this part of the Gregory descendants book only mentioned there was another daughter, perhaps named Cynthia, who married a Mr. Storm and had a son Milton who was mentioned in the grandfather's will; it is uncertain if he was the only child alive in 1841 and if the mother, Nehemiah's daughter, had died by 1841. But this Martin, b~1845, was born after the grandfather died; this would only work if there had been another child named Martin, born prior to 1841, who died by the time of the birth of the second Martin in 1845, a seemingly unlikely scenario. Note that Lydia could be a second wife too.

3. Annis Gregory (~1765 NY->1814 Bridport,Addison county,VT) married Frederick Carter (12/1/1761 Litchfield,CT-1810s? Bridport,VT) on 2/20/1785 in Christ Church,Salem,NY -- 6+? children (census: 1790, 1800, 1810) The census data has Frederick Carter living in these locales in VT: 1790 in Pownal,Bennington; 1800 in Monkton,Addison; 1810 in Bridport,Addison; (the 1820 listing in Cavendish,Windsor is thought to be their son). It appears that Fredrick and Annis likely died in the 1810s, but without individual enumeration, it is not certain -- either or even both could theoretically be included in the household of a son or son-in-law, especially if widowed -- see deductions.
-----3a. Sarah "Sally" Carter (11/18/1785 Pownal twp, Bennington Cty, VT-1821 Madison,Fayette,OH) married William Bostwick (1775 Litchfield,CT-1829 Madison,Fayette,OH)(will) ~1802 -- 9 children -- (census: 1810, 1820)(note that the Bostwicks moved from Bridport,VT to Yankeetown,OH next door to Jehiel Gregory some time between 1810 and 1817; William was a witness to uncle Jehiel's 1817 will).
----------3b. Adoniram Bostwick (6/10/1803 Bridport,VT-1/7/1897 Pancoastburg,OH) married (1) Roxenia Buckley (11/7/1801 CT-1/2/1870 Pancoastburg,OH) in 1822 in Madison,OH and (2) Martha Unknown (~1838 OH-?) in 1870s -- 8 children (census: 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880) Helen Overmeyer Dudleson filed DAR#368156 (Adoniram Bostwick-Eliza Ann Bostwick-Lena Pancoast-Grances Gordy-Helen Overmeyer)

----------3b. William Bostwick (6/2/1812 Bridport, VT-4/8/1892 Fayette,OH) married (1) Eliza Armstrong (~1812 OH-1860s Ross,OH) on 1/1/1835 in Ross,OH and (2) Sarah L. James (11/26/1842 OH-1910s? OH?) on 4/20/1865 -- 10 children (census: 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910)
----------3b. Lucy Ann Bostwick (8/29/1814 Bridport, VT-11/8/1893 Louisiana,MO) married Lewis Harvey (~1810 OH-1880s/90s?) on 12/31/1835 in Mt. Sterling,OH -- 10 children (census: 1850, 1860 1870 1880)

----------3b. Haddock Bostwick (~1820 OH-1820s OH) -- died young (not in father's will)
-----3a. daughter Carter (7/21/1787 Pownal,Bennington, VT-?) -- this may be Beatrice, or this daughter may have died young, and Beatrice born later
-----3a. son Carter -- assume one son is Retrace Carter, a witness to his cousin Jehiel Gregory Jr's 1817 will in Fayette,OH (together with brother-in-law William Bostwick), and that he had at least one child, son James, the only Carter in Fayette,OH on the 1820 census. Curiously, absolutely no records found for Retrace Carter anywhere in America, not even census; it is assumed he had died in Fayette prior to the 1820 census.
-----3a. son Carter -- one son may be the younger Frederick Carter in VT on the 1820 census, who is also listed on military records for 1824-28.
-----3a. son Carter -- unknown
-----3a. 1+ others? died young? the census data appears to indicate at least six children; Indiana DAR record mentions five children.
Vermont ODM, #7450048 includes a Pownal birth record for Sarah in 1785 and unnamed daughter in 1787 on the specific dates above, children of Frederick Carter and wife Annis
Indiana DAR (source) lists daughters Sarah and Beatrice and three sons, submitted by descendant Dorothy Riggin Johnson.
DAR lineage book, vol51, p.216 -- Frederick Carter enlisted 1778 - private in Capt Jonathan Rudd's company, Col. Samuel Chapman's regiment, Connecticut militia; married Annis; daughter Sarah Carter (1785-1821) who married William Bostwick (1775-1823) in 1802. MISS STELLA MILLER. 50474; Born in Mt. Sterling, Ohio; Descendant of Capt. James Davis, Jeremiah Thomas, Frederick Carter and David Deshler; Daughter of Charles Henry Miller (b. 1846) and Sarah Bostwick (1848-95), his wife, m. 1870 -- Frederick Carter (1753-90) enlisted, 1778, as a private in Capt. Jonathan Rudd's company, Col. Samuel Chapman's regiment, Connecticut militia. He was born in Connecticut ; died in Vermont.
1810 Carters in VT: Andrew in Caledonia, Andrew in Orange, Asa in Windsor, Benj in Windham, Ezra in Orleans, Frederic in Windsor, Frederick in Addison, Gedeon in Rutland, Jno in Orleans, Jobe in Rutland, John in Rutland, John in Addison, John in Franklin, John in Rutland, Jonah in Rutland, Jonah in Windsor, Lewis in Chittenden, Luke in Windsor, Moses in Orange, Nehemiah in Franklin, Noah in Orange, Olander in Caledonia, Philip in Caledonia, Saml in Orleans, Samuel in Orange, Solomon in Addison, Vaml (Saml?) in Orange, Wm in Windham and Wm in Orange. Others that may be Carters (messy handwriting) include Chandler/Charrellen Carlen/Carter in Windham, David Carten/Carter in Bennington, John Bliss Cortis/Carter in Orange, and Willoby Carles/Carter in Orange. Obviously, Nehemiah Carter would be of interest, as it is Annis Gregory Carter's father's name, as would be Thomas, the name of Frederick's father (his mother's name was Sarah; he had siblings Thomas, Adoniram, Adonijah, Benjamin, Braddock and Rufus).
