Descendants of Barnabas Horton

 

 

1. Barnabas Horton, b. 1600 in Mousely, Leicestershire, England (headstone). He married (1) Anne Smith. He married (2) Mary Langton, (daughter of _____ Langton and Mary _____). Barnabas died aft 10/MAY/1680.

Per Hortons in America, 1875: "His tombstone is of English blue marble, five feet long and about three feet wide. It is placed horizontally over the grave. The stone was re-lettered about fifty or sixty years ago by Jonathan G. Horton. It is elevated about eighteen inches from the ground, on a good stone base. The original base was of brick, but it had all crumbled down many years ago. The present base was put under the stone at the time it was re-lettered by John G. Horton. The inscription surrounds the border of the stone, and reads as follows:

 

"Here lieth buried the body of MR. BARNABAS HORTON, who was born at Mousely, Leicestershire. Old England, and died at Southold, on the 13th day of July, 1680, aged 80 years."

         In the centre of the stone we find the Epitaph, as follows:

                     "Here lies my body tombed in dust

                      'Till Christ shall come to raise it with the just;

                      My soul ascended to the throne of God,

                      Where with sweet Jesus now I make abode:

                      Then hasten after me, my dearest wife,

                      To be partaker of this blessed life;

                      And you, dear children, all follow the Lord,

                      Hear and obey His public sacred word;

                       And in your houses call upon His name,

                      For oft I have advised you to the same:

                      Then God will bless you with your children all,

                      And to this blessed place He will you call."

                      Heb. xi:4.--"He being dead, yet speaketh."

It is said that this epitaph was written by himself, and that it, together with the inscription, date of his death excepted, was all put upon the stone before he died. He was the only one of the original thirteen who brought his tombstone with him, and this fact seems to indicate a commendable desire to see that his name and memory should not perish from the earth."

HFA

Taken from the Third Publication of the Hildreth Family Association, "James Hildreth was living in 1677. His descendants are resident mainly in Binghamton, Long Island, New York. He was a carpenter, dwelling in Mecox prior to 1677. In 1697, with Henry Pierson and Theophilus Howell, he obtained a grant of Sagg Stream for a grist mill. Later the Hildreth's owned a windmill in Sagaponack, where James built a house. This substantial dwelling was standing until recent years, and is illustrated in Adam's History of Southampton. Besides this property and that at Mecox, he owned a house and land at Noyac. In 1720, James Hildreth, carpenter, being sick, made his will. Hi died in 1720 or 1722. Family records say 1720. In the 1698 census, the list of the inhabitants of Southampton, old and young, male and female, the family was "James, wife Deborah, Daughter Deborah, sons James Jr, and Joshua."

Hi Deby,

Here is some new info on Elijah GARRETSON...

Leslie Karpolorich found a 1942 letter at the Cumberland Co NJ Historical

Soc. It was from Emma Aldrich of Demount (Cumberland Co NJ) to Norman

Vanaman of Ocean View (Cape May Co NJ). Norman Vanaman was a southern NJ

genealogist.

Emma Aldrich was Emma ELDREDGE b c1845 (age about 97 in 1942) m 13 Feb 1866

Cape May Co NJ to Levi ALDRICH. Emma was the daughter of William ELDREDGE b

18 Sep 1820 m 3 Jan 1843 Cape May Co NJ to Elizabeth Springer GANDY. William

was the son of Nathaniel ELDREDGE b 7 Nov 1786 m 20 May 1805 Cape May Co NJ

to Rachel GARRETSON b 18 Mar 1780 Upper Twp Cape May Co NJ d 23 Jan 1855

Middle Twp Cape May Co NJ. Rachel was the daughter of Elijah &

Tobitha/Tabitha (GODFREY) GARRETSON.

Elijah GARRETSON died intestate ca Jan 1824 Upper Twp Cape May Co NJ.

Nathaniel ELDREDGE must of had something to do with his father-in-law's

estate. At least, he purchased Elijah GARRETSON's plantation and other

members of the family had to sign off on this. The papers involved were

passed down to Nathaniel ELDREDGE's son William, and William's daughter,

Emma, who apparently lived to be very old, wrote about them in 1942 to the

genealogist Norman Vanaman. Among these papers was a letter from Enos &

Mary, of Wayne Co IN (1821), and also Benjamin & Mary (sic) PARSON (sic)

(1824), which should say Benjamin & Martha PARSONS. Emma listed the names

of the children and who they married.

Tobitha/Tabitha (GODFREY) GARRETSON.

Elijah GARRETSON died intestate ca Jan 1824 Upper Twp Cape May Co NJ.

Nathaniel ELDREDGE must of had something to do with his father-in-law's

estate. At least, he purchased Elijah GARRETSON's plantation and other

members of the family had to sign off on this. The papers involved were

passed down to Nathaniel ELDREDGE's son William, and William's daughter,

Emma, who apparently lived to be very old, wrote about them in 1942 to the

genealogist Norman Vanaman. Among these papers was a letter from Enos &

Mary, of Wayne Co IN (1821), and also Benjamin & Mary (sic) PARSON (sic)

(1824), which should say Benjamin & Martha PARSONS. Emma listed the names

of the children and who they married.
