Sixth Generation


72. Sarah ALLEN38 was born after 1766.22 She died on 20 July 1821 at the age of 55 in Mayville, Chautauqua County, New York.

Samuel Woodworth was said to be of Mayville, Chautaugua County NY [Formed in 1808 from Genesee Co which had been formed out of Ontario Co in 1802]

Found in WAYNE SENTINEL of Palmyra, 8 Aug 1821:
Sarah Woodworth, wife of Samuel, died 20 July 1821 in Mayfield.
Since Palmyra in Wayne Co was nearer Chautaugua Co it seems likely this was Sarah Allen Woodworth. Mayville is in Chautaugua Co

However, there was a Samuel Woodworth living in Mayfield, Montgomery Co which is some distance from Western New York.

Sarah ALLEN and Samuel WOODWORTH were married.24 Samuel WOODWORTH1 was born (date unknown).

Woodworth or Woodward. Samuel and Sarah were said to be of Mayville, NY - I suspect this is an error. O. Turner gives county as Montgomery Co; GNIS says Mayville is in Chautaugua Co - Montgomery County is in central eastern part of NY. There was a Mayfield in Montgomery Co.

Chautaugua County NY formed in 1808 from Genesee Co which had been formed out of Ontario Co in 1802.

Found in WAYNE SENTINEL of Palmyra, Wayne Co NY, 8 Aug 1821:
Sarah Woodworth, wife of Samuel, died 20 July 1821 in Mayfield.
It seems likely this was Sarah Allen Woodworth since there was that Samuel Woodworth living in Mayfield, even though Montgomery Co which is some distance from Western New York.
Also Sarah's sister Mary lived in Palmyra.
Mayville was in Chautaugua Co.

I found no indication of a Samuel Woodworth [or alternate spelling] in Chautaugua Co.

1790 Census. Montgomery Co, Caughnawaga [which later became Mayfield]
Samuel Woodworth, 1m and 1f over 16
Serenius (Cyrenius) Woodworth, 1m and 1f over 16

No Samuel in Montgomery Co in 1800. There were four Samuel Woodworths in New York, plus one Samuel Woodward in Ulster NY that I can likely eliminate. Two Samuels were in Herkimer, one in Onondaga, one Cayuga - all were between the ages of 26-45.
Cyrenius Wordworth was in Deerfield, Oneida Co; James Wells, first husband of Sally Blowers was in Mongomery Co.

Online databases list a Samuel Woodworth, son of Cyrenius Woodworth & Abigail Chatfield as born in Salisbury CT, 20 Aug 1763 and dying in Mayfield [then Fulton Co NY] on 13 Jun 1854. He is given two wives - Sarah Ward Allen born about 1769 who he married 22 May 1783 in Mayfield, and Sally Maria Blowers [likely a widow]. It is possible the same Samuel married both Sarah's but Sarah Allen, daughter of Moses & Chloe would not have been anywhere near Mayfield in 1783 - the Allens had not yet come to New York - that's a puzzle to be solved.

1830 Census. Mayfield, Montgomery Co NY

Samuel Woodworth. Revolutionary Pensioner or Military Service, age 76


Pension W.26095 is on Fold3. Samuel did confirm in his testimony that he had served as a substitute for his father, Cyrenius Woodworth, from Salisbury, Litchfield, CT. He had removed to Mayfield soon after the Revolution where he resided until his death, 13 Jun 1854. He was born, Salisbury, 20 Aug 1763 and married Sarah "Sally" Wells, widow of James Wells on 4 Dec 1821, in Mayfield. (this would be about 6 months after the death of the first Sarah) Her maiden name thought to be Blowers. Nowhere in the pension files is there any indication Samuel had been married previously, although he appeared to have a wife with him in the 1820 census - and even as far back as 1790. But it is possible Sarah Allen was a first wife.
