Father*Jacob Montross2 born 23 April 1717, died between 1773 and 1790

Life Events

Noteas further evidence of this relationship, one of Samuel Montross’s known sons, Jacob b. abt. 1774, is found still in the Town of Clinton on the 1810 Census with a nearby neighbor of Benjamin Southard. This Benjamin is probably the son of Benjamin and brother to our Barend who married Elizabeth Ostrander. Their daughter Catherine married Samuel Montross Worden.

Moreover, on a single page in the 1810 Census in the Town of Clinton, I find not only this Jacob Montross and Benjamin Southard but also several Barnes and a Carman. Catherine Barnes was Benjamin Southard, Sr.’s mother, and Grace Carman was his great grandmother.3 
Name-OthMatross; which was the spelling adopted by some members of the Montross family around the time of the Revolutionary War, "possibly in an attempt to dissociate themselves from the branch of the family whose members fought on the British side, that is, the sons of Peter (11)."4 
Birth*about 1744; Roslyn Harbor, Queens, New York2 
Marriage*about 1769; Principal=Phebe Ann Velder5,6 
Census*1790; Philipstown, Dutchess, New York; with 1 male over 16, 2 males under 16,six females.7 
Residence*1796; Clinton Hollow, Dutchess, New York; from Tarrytown, NY. He "bought the Zephie Carpenter place aand worked the old mills."8 
Note*1796; "The old homestead of Samuel and Phebe Ann Montross was located where the house of Phebe Ann Mott now [Aug. 1911] stands in Clinton Hollow. The building just north on the same side of the street and once used as a shoemaker's shop is where the home of Hannah & Ed. W. Briggs was. It contained three rooms -- a living room, one bedroom downstairs and one upstairs.

"The old house of Benjamin Briggs and his wife Deborah Wickes who came from the east is where the house of H. Van Dyne now stands."9 
Census1800; Clinton, Dutchess, New York; with 2 males 16-25; 1 male 45 and over; 3 females 10-15; 1 female 45 and over; total 7 in household.7 
Death*18105,6
