Joshua is my 8th great-grandfather, 9th to my children, 10th to grandchildren.
Joshua is the 3rd of 7 children of Barnabas HORTON and his second wife, Mary LANGTON. Barnabas married first to Anne Smith in Leicestershire, England, about 1623, and they had 3 children; she died shortly after their 3rd child in 1628.
Joshua HORTON was born in 1643 in Southold, on Long Island, New York. Approximately 1665, he married Mary Tuttle/TUTHILL who had been born approximately 1647. Her parents are suggested to have been John & Joan Tuttle, but this has not yet been proven. Several online trees suggest they were Henry and Bridget Tuttle, but there are significant differences in children's names making this couple not proven.
Children of Joshua and Mary, all born in the town of Southold, all birthdates are only approximate:
1. Elizabeth, b. 1665
2. Joshua [jr] [ancestor], b. 1669, d. 1744 Elizabethtown NJ; m.
Elizabeth GROVER, about 1690; 8 known children
3. Joseph, b. 1671
4. Sarah, b. 1673
5. Bethia, b. 1679
6. Ephraim, b. 1686
7. Mary, b. 1687
8. Zerviah [or Zeruiah], [female] b. 1689
Note the approximate 6 year gap between the 5th and 6th children, perhaps due to one [or more] unknown child's death.
I have a long list of further suggested research, mainly at the NEHGS site, American Ancestors, for wills, probates, land records, taxes, and additional church records. I have no marriages nor death records for the children other than my direct ancestor. Hopefully by next year I may have found more and relevant records!
This family descends by marriage through my BUELL line, and then to the TERWILLIGER LINE.
If these are your ancestors, I am happy to share what little I have on these ancestors. And if there are errors, please do let me know, via calewis at telus dot net, or in the Comments below and I will get back to you either by email or in the Comments. I appreciate the opportunity to correct any issues in these family trees.
