John Fay

David (OPF #6) (4/23/1679-4/10/1738) son of John and Susanna Shattuck

John (OPF #6) (12/16/1710 - 5/22/1789) son of David and Sarah Larkin

Hezekiah (OPF #18) (9/15/1737 - 2/4/1800) John and Thankful Taylor

Hezekiah (OPF #127) (10/7/1759 - 1/12/1832) son of Hezekiah and Esther

Emerson (OPF p. 238) (2/25/1786 - ) son of Hezekiah and Patty Brigham

  
This branch of the family started in Massachusetts. Emerson went to New York and his sons moved further West to Wisconsin. The new millenium finds many of Emerson's descendants still in Wisconsin with others in Minnesota, Michigan, Iowa and Illinois.

Descendants of Emerson Fay and Polly Sampson
(Sixth Generation)

Emerson and Polly Sampson were married in Watertown, Massachusetts, on the 4th of February 1807. They seem to have moved to New York right away; as far as we know, their children were born in New York. We know definitely of two boys, Samuel and Truman. I think there were others. In 1850, there is an Emerson living in Illinois with a man by the name of A. S. Fay, a police officer in Chicago. Emerson is 70, born in Massachusetts. I think this one is ours. If so, A. S. can only be his son. A. S. is 41, making a birth date of 1809. It is unlikely that Emerson had only two sons, one early in his marriage and one in 1815.
   
The material below is divided into two sections. First comes an annotated view of the descendants of Samuel and Truman. This is followed by overviews of various parts of these lines as follows:
   
Descendants of Samuel and Sara Ann
Descendants of Truman and Susan
Descendants of Frank Lester and Hattie Belle Carman
Descendants of Milton Percy and Jesse Lampman
Descendants of Ellsworth and Myrtle Boelter

....		+Lucy M. Burkite 1848 - 1936 (2nd wife of Truman)

The 1900 census adds a child:

Truman S. Fay; head; Sept. 1837; age 62; M for 5? years; born NY; father MA; mother NY; farmer
Lucy Fay; wife; Jan. 1848; age 51; M for 5? years; has born 4 children, 3 are living.
Erwin (could also be Irvine: has been written over) R.; son; Oct. 1874; age 25
Sherman S.; son; July 1877; age 22
Agnes E.; daughter; Nov. 1880; age 19.
   
..............	9  	Agnes E. Fay
..............	   	+Maurice Tiffany
   
It seems clear that Agnes is the child of Truman and Jennie. What is not clear is the entry for the number of children Lucy has born: did they misunderstand the question and she is counting her stepchildren? or was she married before, and these are children from her first marriage?
   
7  	Truman Fay	5/12/1815 - 11/8/1896
Truman married Susan, last name unknown, and had two children, George and Carrie.
