1.  The founder of the Applegate Family in America was Thomas Applegate who left Norfolkshire, England and settled in Holland with a group of fellow Englishman during the Puritan disorders.

 

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~applegate/

All traditions say Thomas moved to Holland to escape political or religious persecution. There is no factual evidence for this that I have found. The sole reference to his religious biliefs says he was an adherent of the Church of England (Lewis Historical Publishing Company. 1922. History of Monmouth County, 1664-1920. 3 vols. 3:12). Of his issue, only the religious preference of Bartholomew is known - Church of England (Weeks, L. H. 1912. Genealogy. 2 vols. 1:230). This does not prove he did not suffer religious persecution; it does make it unlikely that he did though.

 

His stay in Holland (if he did go) is said to have been short (Salter, E. 1890. History of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. p. v). Hardeman (Hardeman, M. G. N. 1957. Genealogical Data of the Applegate Family. Film 858665, Church of Jesus Christ of Later-Day Saints. p. 2) quoting Harvey L. Applegate says Thomas left England for Holland about 1625. This date, if true, supports the earlier birth date. It also means he was in Holland no more than 10 years since the ferry license is dated 1635.

*****

About 1635, he came to Massachusetts Bay Colony and on Mar. 31, 1635, he was licensed for a year by the General Court to run a ferry between Weymouth and Braintree. However, he lost the license when the canoe he was using as a ferry overturned and several persons were drowned.

 

The following was taken from the official records of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Thomas Aplegate  was "licensed on Sept. 2, 1635 to 'keepe a ferry between Wessagascus and Wolliston for which he is to have jd for any persons ii jf a horse"'. Thomas Aplegate was discharged of "keepein a ferry of Waymothe and Henry Kingman lycensed to keep said ferry at the pleasure of the Court". At the Quarter Court held Oct. 14, 1638, it was decided that, "Aplegate wch owned the canooe out of wch the 3 psons were drowned/& it was ordered that no canooe to be used at any ferry upon paine of S' nor no canooe be made in or jurisdiction before the next General Court upon paine of 10"'.

 

Also an order was appointed to be given to Richard Wright to, "have that canooe our of wch these persons were drowned".   At the next Court held on March 5, 1639, Willi Blanton, Willi Potter, Robert Thorpe, Henry Neal, John  Fitch, and Thomas Aplegate, appearing, were discharged with the admonition not to adventure too many in any boat.

 

However, the record is confusing as Thomas Aplegate's canoe was ordered to be staved in by the court  orders making it unusable; then the Court ordered that Thomas be given 29 shillings for his canoe, provided that he returned the arms he had borrowed and that they were in good condition. (Shurtleff, I:249).

In 1641, testimony by George Allen, son of the George Allen who later purchased the land of Thomas, also connects Thomas with a boat:

 

Thomas Rawlins of Weymouth in New England ffisherman aged about 33. yeares sworne upon his oath that in or about Oct last he heard John King of Weymouth seaman undertake unto Thomas Applegate of Weymouth planter to goe in his boate as Master thereof if an other man could be gotten by either of them to goe wth him the said John King to help manage the said boate and they agreed together that the said John King should have his owne parte of the fishe taken by himself in the sd boat freight free & that the said Thomas Applegate should have the 4th penny of freight of goods carryed in the said boate and that if the boate or any goods therein should be miscarryed cast away or hurt by ill ordering or laying of the said boate the said John King should beare the damage thereof and their words & agreement were to this purpose.

 

George Allen of Weymouth in New England planater aged about twenty one yeares sworne saith upon his oath that about the begining of November last one day late wthinnight he was present in the house of John King of Weymouth seaman Master of Thomas Applegates boate & there heard the said John King say to William Newland that he would not stand to the adventure of the goods of the said William Newland laden in the said boate if that one hogshead of salt more of his were put into the same boate, whereto the said Newland answered that not withstanding he would have the said hogshead put into the said boate that night & if the boate were overladen in the morning some of the said goods might be again taken out thereof or words to that purpose and hereupon this deponent wth others did help put in the said hogshead that night into the said boate & in the next morning the boate did not rise but sunke to that side where the said hogshead lay and this deponent knoweth thatrhe said boate did rise well enought one tyde when the resr of the said goods besides the said hogshead were in it (Hale, E. E. 1885. Note-book kept by Thomas Lechford, Esq. Lawyer in Boston, Massachusetts Bay from June 27, 1638 to July 29, 1641. Transactions and Collections of the American Antiquarian Society, 7:215).

 

In a footnote to the above, it is observed that in 1636 Thomas was discharged from keeping the ferry but from later entries, it appeared that Thomas continued until 1638 as owner of the ferry although William Blanten may have actually managed the ferry.

 

Just one day after the sinking, Newland filed suit against Thomas for eight pounds - and won. George Allen testified it was Newland's salt that had been in Thomas' boat and therefore Newland was entitled to damages (Chamberlain, G. W. 1923. History of Weymouth, Massachusetts. 4 Vols. 4:443).

 

The ferry and the Allen family were connected later. George Allen, the purchaser of Thomas' land, came to Weymouth with the Hulls in April 1635. One of his sons, John, was granted land "in the plaine" prior to 1643. This land had originally been given to Thomas (Chamberlain, 3:11). George Jr., another son, complained to the general court "about the ferry at Weymouth" on 10 March 1640.

 

According to Chamberlain (3:14) Thomas' first land was "in the plaine" and then given to John Allen. Later, Thomas was given land "on the west side of Great Pond." Chamberlain goes on to say, without documentation, that Thomas was in Weymouth prior to 1635. He then given another version of the famous/infamous canoe. According to him, John King was the captain when the drowning took place. Besides the passengers, the canoe carried a load of salt that caused the capsizing.

 

The last land record for Thomas in Weymouth is 02 February 1651 when he was given lot 28 on "the east side of Fresh Pond." (Nash, C. G. 1863. Historical Sketch of the Town of Waymouth, Massachusetts)

 

The final item on the land of Thomas is given by Nash, p. 255:

 

The land of John Allin

ffive acres on the plaine first granted to Thomas Applegate bounded on the East by a lot of Joseph Shawes on the East & south with on the West by Ralph Allins lot the sea on the north two acres at the same bounded with the sea Eyght acres on the necke the land of Henry Kingman on the East Thomas Holbrooke on the west the common on the north first granted to George Allin Two acres and a quarter twelve rod of meddow in the wester neck first giuen to George Allin bounded on the East with the marsh of Richard Silquester on the west with the marsh of William ffrie the sea on the north the land of Henry Kingman on the south ...

 

In 1641, Joshua Coffin noted that he saw Thomas in Weymouth (Farmer, J. 1964. A Genealogical Register of the First Settlers of New England).

 

3.  Stillwell cites trouble that Elizabeth Applegate, Thomas' wife had in the Massachusetts Bay Colony as  follows: "She appears to have been one of the unfortunate persons who suffered from the ecclesiastical tyranny of that Puritanical age, for she was 'censured to stand with her tongue in a cleft stick for swearing,  reviling, and railing"'(Boston Court Sept. 6, 1636).

 

4.  These experiences were obviously too much for the Applegates and they left the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1640 and went to Rhode Island. There, Thomas appears to have engaged in several real estate  endeavors and was identified as a weaver.  Thomas was also involved in several Court suits.

 

5.  http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~applegate/

Characteristaclly, the first data from Rhode Island is of Thomas in court (Chapin, H. M. 1916. Documentary History of Rhode Island. 2 Vols.). He filed suit against John Room(e) of Newport for use of a house on 01 December 1641. In a complicated set of suits, Thomas, Room(e), Nicolas Cotteral and William Heavens sued and countersued each other up to 03 December 1643 (Chapin, pp. 135, 138, 142, 150, 152).

 

According to Rhode Island Colony Records (1:7), the land had been granted to William Heavens by the town council. Heavens, identified as a carpenter, mortgaged the property to Nicholas Cotteral and, with the money, built a house on the lot. Later, Cotteral foreclosed and sold the porperty and house to Thomas. He, in turn, attempted to sell it to George Cozzens. The property apparently is on what is now Aquidneck Avenue, Middletown (then part of Newport).

 

Our next record of Thomas is also a court case (Rhode Island Colony Records, 1:135). A Jermey Gould filed against Thomas. Both are identified as being from Newport. Mr. Coggesdall was appointed as referee and both Thomas and Jermey were ordered to abide by his decision no later than the last day of April, 1642. Neither the cause of the dispute nor the resolution are listed.

 

Edward Browce sold Thomas, identified as a weaver, a four-acre house lot between the lots of George Cleer and Thomas Roberts on 21 January 1643 (Rhode Island Colony Records, 2:3). The same records show that George Gardiner switched lots with Thomas Applegate. The lots are in the region of Newport's main post office - Thames Street at Memorial Boulevard. In the 1650's all these home lots were purchased by Benedict Arnold, the great-grandfather of the traitor. Their separate identities were lost at that time.

 

On 20/21 March 1643, James Rogers sold three parcels of land to Thomas Applegate, weaver (Rhode Island Colony Records, 2:1): 1) Roger's house and lot; 2) a four-acre lot between the lots of Edward Andrews and Michaell Spence; 3) the western half of Roger's "30-acre great lot."

 

On 06 May 1643, Edward Andrews sold to Robert Jefferies two four-acre lots (Rhode Island Colony Records, 2:4). The land north of the lots was described as being owned by Thomas Applegate, weaver. However, Thomas had sold that land to Jefferies nine months earlier.

 

Thomas took time out from his real estate dealings (but not for long) to engage in another court case. On 07 June 1643, William Dyer of Newport filed suit against Thomas Applegate, weaver, of the same town for "detayning of goods to the damage of 40s the D:acknowledged wrong & was injoyned to aske forgiveness of the pl and his wife for wronging of them & so carry back the goods to the Pl. house" (Rhode Island Colony Records, 2:141).

 

On the same page (and probably on or near the same date) Henry Bull filed suit against Thomas for trespass. Applegate was to "Satisfie" the claim by order of the court.

 

A few months later, 20 August 1643, Thomas sold to Robert Jefferies two home lots of four acres each (Rhode Island Colony Records, 2:3). One lot was that sold Thomas on 21 January 1643 by Edward Browce. The other lot, location unknown, was given Thomas by the town.

 

Thomas also held land to the south. It is now known as Price's Neck. By the original deed, William Dyre bought the neck from Thomas Applegate who obtained it by a town grant. On 20 December 1644, Dyre sold it to George Gardiner (Rhode Island Colony Records, 2:5). On 14 December 1652, Gardiner sold it to John Price (hence today's name).

 

Appelgat's Plaine is mentioned in Rhode Island Land Evidence, 1:71. William Dyre was colony secretary and he was one of the men who originally laid out the roads, farms and lots. In 1654, he wrote:

 

An other high-way from the Entrance of mr. Coggesdalls farme to goe to castle hill and soe leadinge to all the Lands and Comons upon the neck wch way was layd out by us to the Brooke that came down by Apelgates Plaine the rest is not detirmined as yett where to runn - A highway from the Towne layd out of 2 poles wide to wi. Dyres farme and soe to lead to the lands on the north side of the Towne girt the meadows, mr. Coggingtons Cow-pasture the Artillery Garden mr. Clarkes land and Willia Dyres Land soe by mr. Dyres meadow a way into the land that the said Dyre bought of Apelgate to fetch off the wood of that land for the townes use which land was layd forth by Captn Clarke and mr. Robert Jefferays as alsoe byn them was the wood reserved and the way appointed only for that use.

 

6.  He sold his 15 acre farm on May 5, 1644 and probably left Rhode Island and came to New Amsterdam where he settled briefly at Flushing, Long Island. He was one of the original patentees there receiving a patent on Oct. 10, 1645. (Thompson, B. J. 1962. History of Long Island 3rd ed. 3 vols.).

 

The following is the Charter of the Town of Flushing NY granted by Gov Kieft to the various patentees, some of whom became Monmouth County settlers.

The Laws and Ordinances of New Netherland 1638-1674, by

E.B. O'Callaghan (on the Cornell MOA site) has the Flushing Charter on

pages 48-51.  Dated 10 Oct 1645.  Patentees were:

     Thomas Farrington

     John Townesend

     Thomas Stiles

     Thomas Saull

     John Marston

     Robert Field

     Thomas Applegate

     Thomas Beddard

     Laurence Dutch

     John Laurence

     Robert Firman

     John Hicks

     Edward Hart

O'Callaghan in his History of New Netherland vol. I, p. 357, says they "were forced to remove from Massachusetts in the spring of this year".  Brodhead in his History of New York vol. I, p. 410 says the patentees were "Engish emigrants".

Both reference Thompson's Long Island vol II, pp 67-69,

 

 

7. Thomas sold this patent and secured a patent of land on Nassau Island at Gravesend from  John Ruckman, one of the original patentees of Gravesend on Nov. 12, 1646 where he apparently remained the rest of  his life. (Gravesend, 1:4. Records of the town were transcribed in the early 1900's. The transcripts are in the James A. Kelly Institute for Local Historical Studies, St. Francis College, Brooklyn, New York).

 

8.  On 17 December 1646, the town council of Gravesend included Tho. Aplegate in the list of those required to keep twenty poles for a fence to be erected between the various lots (Gravesend, 1:9). Thomas failed to keep up his part of the fence. On 13 April 1647, the town council decided to "hyer a man to doe it" and have Thomas chared with the costs (Gravesend, 1:10). Later, in February 1648, Thomas agreed to help fence the common pasture.

 

9.  At Gravesend, both Thomas and Elizabeth were caught up in court cases as they were apparently strong  minded and believers in free speech. According to Stillwell, "this brought them (the Applegates)  oppressive punishment from their neighbors. But such was the habit of the times. Few or none escaped from conflict of this sort.  Their isolated life gave small opportunity on mental development on wholesome and broad lines, and their talk degenerated into gossip of a dangerous, personal nature, readily embellished and circulated over the convivial cup at the tavern. The habit grew in the community till it became customary to air the most petty grievances in court, and the contest savored much of a pastime.  So great a nuisance did it became, that the court finally for its own protection, passed a rule laying the expenses of a suit upon the plaintiff in the event of his failure to successfully prosecute his case".

 

 12 Sep 1648":Ambrose London plaintive agt:ye wife of Tho: Aplegate defent in an action of slander for saying his wife did milke her Cowe"

 

"The defent saith yt shee said noe otherwise but as Penellopey Prince tould her yt Ambrose his wife did milke her Cowe"

 

"Rodger Scotte being deposed saith yt being in ye house of Tho: Aplegate hee did heare Pennellopy Prince saye yt ye wife of Ambrose London did milke ye Cowe of Tho: Aplegate"

 

"Tho: Greedye being deposed saith yt Pennellope Prince being att his house hee did heare her saye yt shee and Aplegates Daughter must com as witnesses agat: Ambrose his wife milking Aplegates Coew"

 

"Pennellope Prince being questationed adknowled her faulte in soe speaking and being sorrie her words she spake gave sattisfaction on both sides." source: Gravesend Town Book, vol. 1, Sept 12, 1648.

 

One such reference is the following: (Diggs, The Two Baxters of New Amsterdam, NYG & BR 8, 70).  "One Thomas Applegate of Gravesend owned a farm there but seems to have spent much of his leisure in the public stocks on the outside of Lady Moody's door. Scarcely had Stuyvesant returned from Hartford with his suite when Applegate was brought up for trial on a charge of slander. Sergeant Hubbard, who had  accompanied George Baxter on several expeditions against the Indians, was 'plaintiff in ye behalf of his  wife against Thomas Aplegate in an action of slander in saying ye plaintiff hath but half a wife'. 'Aplegate thee utterly denied that hes ever spake such wordes'. Thus the issue was joined and the Court consisting of George Baxter and his two fellow magistrates, call for the witnesses. Robert Clarke (whose daughter Bridget married Thomas Baxter) being deposed saith that Thomas Aplegate, Sr., being some time at  Manhattan, there waiting three days to have ye company of ye said Robert Clarke to ye plantation of  Gravesend, on ye way as thee, his wife and said deponent come long, ye said defendant said: ' Heare' said  thee, 'ye Governor Stuyvesant hath raved out your daughter for Ensign Baxter, but I hope you will be  wiser'. 'Why' said ye depone". Ye defendant replyed saying: 'thee is a beggerly scabb and most of his  maintainance he hath in the place we are going to; and when he is there ye Serjant Hubbard hath but half a wife. Ye wife of Mr. Clarke of ye age of 48 being deposed witnesses the same. The defendant being

questioned by the Court why and wherefore thee had given forth such slanderous reports and where tree  could prove the truth of it, thee answered and said that thee never spoke ye words.

 

Notwithstanding this, the Court directed him to stand att ye Public Post during ye pleasure of ye Court with a paper on his breast mentioning the fact that thee is a notorious slandalous person. 'Now is Open  Court hee has confessed ye wrong done her in raising reports and was sorry for it and desired her to remitt  it and pass it by; and she did and he gave her thanks'.

 

The magistrates who sat at this trial were George Baxter, Nicholas Stillwell, Sergeant Hubbard, and  Robert Clarke, all interested persons. Poor Thomas Applegate did not have a chance; he gave a bond of 500 guilders to speak no more scandal. Furman (Furman, J. P. 1983. Thomas and Elizabeth Applegate of Gravesend. mss.) has analyzed the court cases of Thomas while in Gravesend. He concludes there is some evidence that Driggs overstated both Thomas' offenses and his penalties.

 

10.  The very next record (1650) in this court is another complaint  against Mr. Aplegate for slander, charged by Nicholas Stillwell who claimed that he had been maligned since Aplegate stated that if he (Stillwell) paid all his debts, he would have nothing left. 

 

On Jan. 8, 1651, he was again before the magistrates, charged by Mrs. Robert Clarke with slander for  saying Governor Stuyvesant took bribes. Mr. Robert Clarke, assistant magistrate, testified:

Thomas said, 'I cannot have my rights, ye Governor is bribed'; but said hee, 'now the Governor is going  in to ye North (to Hartford) and if time would permit, I would goe in to ye North and I would lay him up  fast and there I should have justice though I could have none here'. This being at ye same time ye Governor was in Hartford. "Bridget Baxter (Mr. Robert Clarke's daughter) being deposed witnesseth that  this Thomas Aplegate, Sr., said in effect as her father above said hath declared. Ye defendant said he never spake any such words. The court therfore do adjudge ye said Aplegate deserves to have his tongue bored through with a read hot iron and to make a public acknowledgment of his great transgression therein, and  never to have credit in way of belieff in any testimony or relation and meantime to lye in prison until further order from ye Governor.

 

The above sentence being publicly read in our General Court in ye presence of most of ye inhabitants, ye  said Aplegate did then and there publiquely acknowledge and confess he had slandered ye Governor in his untrue charging of him, and took ye blame and ye shame of it upon himself and did humbly request forgiveness of ye said Governor and that ye Court and ye town would intercede for him hoping it would be a warning to him and to others not to offend in like kind".

Fortunately for Thomas, he was pardoned by the Governor.

 

11.  http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~applegate/

On 06 October 1651, Richard Gibbons filed suit against Thomas for "violateing ye gates belongeing to ye common field" (Gravesend, 1:90). On 09 November 1651, Thom. Aplegat Senior sued William Auldridge for a debt of 9 guilders 7 stivers. William Vowne said he would try to pay the devt in a weeks time "if he can pcure ye money to see it pd." The court ordered Auldridge to pay it in 14 days if Vowne did not pay (Gravesend, 1:92). On the same day, Thomas brought suit against William Goulder for a devt of 35 guilders 10 stivers.

 

Thomas was in trouble again for his fence on 08 January 1651. He failed to maintain it so the town repaired it and charged him for the costs (Gravesend, 1:61). On the same day, son John was at Thomas' house. The court sent for John to pay his fine for breaking of the peace. John refused and told the court to "doe theyer worste" (Gravesend, 1:61).

 

The last reference I have found for Thomas is 15 January 1656 when he appraised the estate of John Morris (Gravesend, 3:445). Thomas' wife, Elizabeth, and sons, Bartholomew, John and Thomas appear as freeholders of land in Gravesend in 1657 (Thompson, B. J. 1962. History of Long Island 3rd ed. 3 vols. 3:117). Thomas Sr. may have died sometime in the years 1656-1657. Those listing his death in 1652 are mistaken.

 

12.  Thomas married Elizabeth (Wall(?)). He purchased land from John Ruckman, one of the 39 original lots into which Gravesend was divided in 1646. On Dec. 29, 1650, he sold half of his farm in Gravesend to Thomas Southard and his wife, Anna  Van Salee. He apparently died either late in 1656 or early in 1657 as his wife was listed in the tax records in 1657.

Fourth Generation

—————————————————————————————————————————————

 

9. Bartholomew Applegate (Thomas3, John2, William1), 7G Uncle, 3061, M. Born abt 1620. Bartholomew died abt 1690; he was 70.

 

1.  In 1650, Bartholomew completed with William Wilkins, a tide mill on Strom Kiln.

 

2.  Over the next 25 years, Bartholomew's name appears from time to time in the records of Gravesend(Stillwell, p.3).

 

One of these records indicated that his wife Hannah and child were apparently abducted by the Indians and were ransomed with red cloth.

 

3.  On Mar. 7, 1674, Bartholomew Applegate ( Appelgadt ), Thomas Applegate ( Bartholomew's brother ), and Richard Sadler were granted permission to purchase lands from the Indians, near the Neversinks, in East Jersey. However, this was contested in April by John Bowne and Richard Hartshorne who filed notice that the grant was an infringement of their patent. The Council ordered them to prove their claim with six months, but by that time, the English had taken over the country and it was necesary to reapply for a new warrent from those in power.

 

4.   In 1684, Bartholomew was in Sussex Co., Delaware and was cited as delinquent in working on the highways (Some Records of Sussex Co., Delaware. C.H.S. Turner. Philadelphia, Allan, Land, and Scott. 1909. p116).

7.  John's will was dated Nov. 13, 1704 and mentions wife Avis, Exec'x; sons of brother, Thomas Applegate, with Avis to receive all of his estate and at her death to go to his brother, Thomas's sons. The will was probated on Jan. 24, 1712 with John Meredith of Newport, Rhode Island, one of the witnesses, swearing that John Applegate was of sound mind.

Thomas Applegate married Johanna , daughter of Richard Gibbons , the Monmouth County Patentee, whose estate of five hundred acres lay in Nutswamp, Middletown .

 

13.  Historical and Genealogical Miscellany, Vol. 3 

In 1678, Richard Gibbons gave one hundred acres of this land to Thomas Applegate , but as he does not designate him as a relative, I consider that he had not yet married Johanna , the daughter of the donor. This deduction would make her Thomas Applegate 's second wife, which I am the more inclined to believe, as Thomas Applegate , in his will, dated 1698, bequeathed the Gibbon 's tract, solely, to his two youngest children, Benjamin and Richard , who were yet minors and probably his issue by Johanna Gibbons . It was on this site, Nutswamp , I believe that Thomas Applegate died.

 

 

14.  Historical and Genealogical Miscellany, Vol. 3

1698, Feb. 1. Thomas Applegate made his will; proved before Andrew Bowne , John Hance and Peter Tilton , Justices, Mch. 29, 1699, by the witnesses, Richard Hartshorne , John Vaughan , Cornelias Compton and Mary Grover . In it he called himself Thomas Applegate , Sr., of Middletown , sick, etc., and mentioned:

Son, Thomas Applegate , received one shilling. Son, John Applegate , received one shilling. Son, Daniel Applegate , received one shilling. Son, Joseph Applegate , received one shilling. Daughter, Elizabeth Son, Benjamin Applegate ; fifty acres, at Nutswamp . Son, Richard Applegate ; fifty acres, at Nutswamp . Land which I had of my father-in-law, Richard Gibbons and which they are to enjoy at the age of twenty-one years and during the interim the house and one hundred acres to be enjoyed by his wife Johanna .

Loving wife, Johanna ; all his lands save the one hundred acres disposed of and all his personal estate, and makes her sole executrix.

 

He signed: Thomas Applegate , his mark. And letters testamentary were issued, May 19, 1699, to the widow, Johanna Appellgate .

 

Sep. 8, 1699, his personal estate was inventoried at £37-18-00.

 

In ~1678/79 when Thomas was 46, he married Johanah Gibbons, 6G Grandmother, 1434, F, daughter of Richard Gibbons, 2460, M (~1620-1684) & Elizabeth, 2461, F. Born in ~1652 in NJ. Johanah died in Monmouth Co., NJ, aft 1699; she was 47.

Historical and Genealogical Miscellany, Vol. 5

He died, probably, in 1710, his will being dated Oct. 15, 1709, and proved Sep. 7, 1710. In it he calls himself Daniel Applegate , Sr., of Middletown , names wife, Rebecca ; eldest son, John ; and children Jacob , Bartholomew , Ebenezer , Susannah , Hannah , Mary and Rebecca .

 

Historical and Genealogical Miscellany, Vol. 5 

After his death, Rebecca married, Jan. 9, 1710/11, William Leeds , (The original certificate for this marriage, issued by Obadiah Bowne , is in the possession of Dr. J. E. Stillwell .) whose record in Christ Church, Shrewsbury , reads that he died April 27, 1739; this is on the fly-leaf of the cover of the minutes of that Church.

 

Historical and Genealogical Miscellany, Vol. 5 

In his will, dated June 20, 1735, and proved Nov. 20, 1739, he refers to his wife, Rebecca , and leaves his personalty, after that wife's death, to Rebecca Gracey and Ebenezer Applegate , children of the said wife. Then follows a legacy to Abigail Applegate , daughter of Richard Applegate , that leads me to think Richard was a son, and Abigail a grand daughter of Daniel and Rebecca (Tilton) Applegate .

2.(History of Allegheny County, Penna. p94)

Probable years of settlement for the New Jersey settlement members are as follows: 1766-Thomas, William, Samuel and Benjamin Applegate, James and  Walter Wall

 

3.  He  died probably before 1790, probably in Allegheny or Washington Co., Pa. The name of Thomas' wife is unknown, but she is probably the Mrs. Applegate who married on Sept. 29, 1796 with Squire Joseph Beckett, officiating, to Andrew McKeth. Thomas joined the Tonaway Baptist Church in  Bedford Co., Pa. prior to 1770. He also appears on the list of members of Peters Creek Baptist Church on 10 Nov 1773 but not on the list for 1789.  (Roger Vaughn says "1775 list")

 

Thomas is supposed to have fought in the French and Indian War (family tradition).  He may be the Thomas Applegate who served 10 days (Roger Vaugh says 7 days) with an Maryland Unit during the French and Indian War.

 

He is listed on the taxpayers list for 1773 in Rosstraver Twp. which was then in Bedford Co., Pa.

His name appears on a number of transactions in Yohogania Co., Va. during the years, 1777-80. (Yohogania Co., Va. became part of Washington Co., Pa. in the 1780's). An example of one of these transactions(deeds) is one given on Sept. 24, 1778 by Andrew McMeans to Thomas Applegate of Yohogania Co. which was witnessed by John Rubicum and Henry Westley. In deed book "C", of Washington Co., Pa. shows a tract of 224 acres in the name of Thomas Applegate. A warrant was issued on Jan. 10, 1786, and the tract was surveyed on May 28, 1787; but the patent was issued to Richard Johnston on Nov. 14, 1806. In 1786, Thomas Applegate was listed as owning 300 acres in Elizabeth Twp., Allegheny Co., Pa. which was then Rosstraver Twp., Westmoreland Co., Pa. (Notes from Hugh Voress)

 

(In the late1760's a number of New Jersey families settled in the area between the Youghiogheny River and the Monongahela River, often called "the Forks of the Yough," in what is now western Pennsylvania. This area was claimed by both Pennsylvania and Virginia, a dispute that was not finally settled until 1785 by the U.S. Congress. Virginia divided this area into the counties of Yohogania, Ohio, and Monongalia, while Pennsylvania divided this area into the counties of Allegheny,Westmoreland, Fayette, and Greene. Records were kept by both colonies and this helps to explain how the Applegate family appeared to be in two states at once.)

3. Died May 31, 1823 in Allegheny Co., Pa. He married (1) Rebecca Wall,  born 1730; died Nov. 25, 1781; daughter of James Wall; (2) to Hannah_______, born ; died . (It is interesting to note                     what had happened since the will of Benjamin-3 was probated in Burlington Co., NJ on May 16, 1753. Several of  Benjamin's sons had settled in Allegheny Co., Pa. or what is now Washington Co., Pa., but at time claimed by  Virginia and called Yohogania Co. Harvey Linn Applegate, writing in 1915, gave the following account. "Benjamin-4 emigrated to Rostraver Twp., Westmoreland Co., Pa.(now Forward Twp., Allegheny Co., Pa.) in 1766, "in  company with James and Walter Wall(his brother-in- law)". They returned to "the east" in the fall of 1768, and they  brought their families to Rostraver Twp. in the spring of 1769).* Recently, it was discovered that the Applegate who                     accompanied the Wall brothers, was Benjamin's nephew, Thomas Applegate, Jr. Garrett  Applegate 1758-1837) perhaps the second son of Benjamin-4 after Walter, states in his Revolutionary War pension application (S32098) that  he was born in Berkeley Co., Va. on Nov. 2, 1758 and lived there until 1774. (Berkeley Co., Va. was formed in 1772 from Frederick Co., Va. and included what is now the eastern panhandle of WV, Morgan, Berkeley and  Jefferson Cos., WV). Benjamin-4 was in the Revolutionary War, serving with Capt. Thomas Moore's Co. of  Rangers(1778-83).(Pa. Arch. 3, Ser. Vol. 23, p.322). Benjamin was granted a tract of 397 acres of land on Nov. 23, 1787 by the Supreme Executive council of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The deed for this property was                     recorded in the Rolls Office in Patent Book, Vol. 11, page 407 in Harrisburg, Pa. Benjamin lived on this land and he and Rebecca were buried there. There are no traces of their tombstones now as a barn was built over that area, formerly his cemetery. Benjamin's will was dated Jan. 20, 1821 and it listed all of his children and a few of his grandchildren. (Notes from Hugh Voress)

 

Benjamin married Rebecca Wall, 2595, F, daughter of James Wall, 2596, M. Born abt 1730.

63. William Applegate (Benjamin5, Thomas4, Thomas3, John2, William1), 5G Uncle, 2591, M. Born abt 1733 in Burlington Co., NJ. William died in Corydon, Harrison Co., IN, abt 1838; he was 105.

 

1.   (This date  (1838) is mentioned in several references (e.g. History of Brown Co., Ohio) but has not been confirmed; in fact no official  record of him exists after 1801). He married in NJ to Mrs. Sarah Catherine Wiggins. He came to western  Pennsylvania about 1768-70, probably with his brother(s). The first tax list of Rosstraver Twp., Bedford Co., Pa. in 1772 lists William and his three brothers, Benjamin, Thomas and Daniel. He is taxed 3.0 in 1773. He was listed as a  "Ranger on the Frontier" Continental Line, 1778-83 and served in Hugh Goudy's Company. In 1783, the Westmoreland Co., return-transcript of property, lists William as possessing 300 acres of land, 3 horses, 5 head of cattle, 8 sheep, and 11 white inhabitants. In 1786, he was taxed 8.5 in Westmoreland Co., Pa. The 1790 census, lists  males over 16 (2); males under 16 (1); females(all ages) 5. He received a patent of land formerly owned by James Dean. This tract was surveyed on Sept. 16, 1790 and was patented to William Applegate on June 23, 1794 and which  was called, "Apple Orchard". In 1791, he was taxed 18.4 in Elizabeth Twp., Allegheny Co., Pa. On Apr. 15, 1801,  William and his wife Sarah, now living in North Beaver Twp., Allegheny Co., Pa. transferred this property to sons  Isaiah, William, and Robert. If he moved to Indiana, it is probable that it occurred after this property transfer. The 1830 census of Indiana lists a William Applegate, Sr.

William married Sara Catherine Wiggins, 2597, F. Sara Catherine died in ~1800.

64. Richard Applegate (Benjamin5, Thomas4, Thomas3, John2, William1), 5G Uncle, 2592, M. Born abt 1733. Richard died in Scott Co., KY, abt 1800; he was 67.

 

1.   He married (1) probably in  Albany, NY, to_______Wiggins,  died c1779; (2) probably in Allegheny Co., Pa. to Mrs. Rebecca Sparks,  died after 1800 probably in Scott Co., Ky. Richard served in the French and Indian War; his name appears on  the Muster Roll of Major James Burd's Co., 1st Pa. Regiment on Apr. 2, 1756, aged 23. (Pa. Arch. Vol. 1, 5th Ser.,  p60. Thomas L. Montgomery, ed. Harrisburg, Pa.; Harrisburg Publ. Co. 1906). Richard was listed among others in                    Ulster Co., NY in May 1768 where an indictment was drawn up against Cornelius Wood of Newburgh, NY who was fraudulently collecting taxes. On Dec. 24, 1769, Richard Applegate was assigned to prosecute Mr. Wood(Ulster Co., NY Records published in the National Geneal. Soc. Quart. 61, 296(1973). Richard apparently moved his family closer to New Jersey, possibly in Northhampton Co., Pa. about the start of the Revolutionary War. About 1778,  Richard enlisted in the Revolutionary War with two of his sons, Benjamin and William. His name appears on the roll                  on May 14, 1778 in the 6th Batt., Northhampton Co., Pa. Militia. (Pa. Arch. Ser. 5, Vol. 8, p435). Not long  afterwards, his first wife died and he placed his son, Daniel, with a "Dutch farmer". After the war, he apparently  moved to western Pennsylvania where he married his second wife. They moved to Scott Co., Ky. where he was listed as a member of the Great Crossing Baptist Church on June 1, 1785. He purchased property in Fayette Co., Ky. on Nov. 29, 1789 and was among the inhabitants of Woodford Co., Ky. who petitioned the Virginia Legislature on Oct. 25, 1790 for a division of their county. His will was signed on July 1, 1789 and was probated late in the year 1800. The records of the Great Crossing Baptist Church reported him alive on June 1, 1800; but dead in Nov. 1800.

I am connected to Catherine Applegate m. abt 1790 to Samuel Liming  in New

Jersey/PA.  Samuel b. 4 Feb 1753 in PA and died 22 Sep 1834 in Colerain Twp,

Hamilton Co, OH.  He was the son of Henry Liming and Sarah Delaplaine, of

NJ!

 

Catherine Applegate b. abt 1760 (NJ/PA/NY) was the daughter of  Richard

Applegate b. 1745, Middlesex, NJ and died Nov 1800 Kentucky.  Mother Kate

Wiggins b. abt 1745, possibly NJ and d. 1779 in Kentucky.  Note: some say

Catherine Wiggen birth. abt 1725 of, Albany, NY.

 

Richard first married Wiggins, 2991, F.

 

Richard second married Rebecca Sparks, 2992, F.

 

65. Daniel Applegate (Benjamin5, Thomas4, Thomas3, John2, William1), 5G Uncle, 2593, M. Born abt 1740 in Monmouth Co., NJ. Daniel died in Alleghany Co., PA, abt 1812; he was 72.

 

1.  He married Mrs. Elizabeth ( Harvey ) Brown, born ; died c1816 in Allegheny Co., Pa., supposedly of German parentage. Her son, Frederick Brown, born Dec. 1, 1759; died , was apparently adopted and considered Daniel's son in his will. Frederick Brown married             Christina Smith and their daughter, Ruth Brown, married William Applegate, Daniel's grandson and son of John  Applegate. Daniel was apparently under age at his father's death and was bound out to learn "a useful trade". Just when he joined his brothers in Allegheny Co., Pa. is not known, but he probably joined his brothers as soon as he  was released from "learning his trade". Daniel is supposed to have served in the Westmoreland Co., Pa. Militia or the Continental Line during the Revolutionary War, but did not receive a pension, probably because he died before the Act  of 1818 which was the first act to take care of aging Revolutionary War veterans. He patented his land in Allegheny Co., Pa., calling it "Orchard".

(Notes from Hugh Voress)

2.  Will of Thomas Morford.

#9131-8136 Made June 29 1790 recorded 26 June 1797.

Bequests were made to Ann, well beloved wife: Ann to recieve personal possession's.

To Joseph, son, 5 shillings. To daughter, Rebecca Prine: 5 shillings.( evidently Rebecca was already married to Peter Perrine.} To granddaughter, Ann Morford: 40 pounds {She must have been the daughter of Joseph, Michael or Thomas, but probably of Joseph. To grandchildren Peter Perrine and James Perrine.(These were the children of Elizabeth and Andrew Perrine.} forty pounds each.  To son John, 50 pounds.

 

The above bequests to be paid within 10 years of testators decease(by 1807) and then the estate was to be sold and divided equally between the 2 sons, James and John, to share and share alike.

 

 Executrix: Ann, Wife. (Since only John signed the proof of probate, it meant that Ann was either too ill to serve or that she had died. She died 2 years after the death of Thomas.

Executor: son John

 

Since Thomas and his brother John were very young when their father died in 1717, it is safe to suppose that both were born on the Morford land in Cranbury, Middlesex Co. N. J..

 

Since John spent his life outside New Jersey, it might be fair enough to suppose that his brother, Thomas lived on the property of his deceased father which was in Cranbury, Middlesex Co. N. J. because John(4) son of Thomas says that he "lived his whole life up to 1802 in the house in which he was   born" He lists it ,South Amboy, Middlesex Co N. J.

 

On 25 Sep 1739 when Thomas was 23, he married Ann Lawrie, 7201, F, in Monmouth Co., NJ. Born in 1719 in Ireland.

1.  Also seen as Catherine

 

2.  In his opening chapter of "Peddler To Suburbanite--The History of the Jews of Monmouth County, N.J." (1981), Alan Pine identified the original proprietor of Hart's Tavern, located in the center of Jewstown, as Levy Hart, a Jewish businessman in partnership with Jonas Solomon, another Jewish merchant in nearby Freehold.  Both men married sisters, Catherine and Hannah Applegate, members of a prominent Monmouth County Protestant family.

 

 

3.   After Levy Hart died in 1775, Catherine, his widow, married Joshua Huddy, who was to become Monmouth County's most illustrious patriot.  Huddy, a captain in the militia, used the tavern as a meeting place for his company.  Catherine's son, Ebenezer Hart, and his cousin John Solomon of Freehold, also served in rebel forces.  The British and local Loyalists did not need much more reason to mark “Jewstown” as an object of their scrutiny and enmity.

 

One of several homes in Freehold burned by the British during the Battle of Monmouth on June 28, 1787 belonged to Catherine's sister Hannah Solomon, already a widow by the time of the Revolution. 

 

3.  The fighting between local Patriots (Rebels) and Loyalists continued for more than four years after the British and American armies departed the battlefield at Monmouth.  One of these skirmishes occurred in 1780 when a band of 60 Loyalists attacked the “Jewstown” home of Captain Huddy.  Huddy escaped capture then but was not so lucky two years later when he was taken into British custody defending the fort at Toms River.

 

While a prisoner under the command of Loyalist officer Richard Lippincott, Huddy was summarily hung in retaliation for the death of Lippincott's brother-in-law at the hands of Rebel militia.  At the court-martial of Lippincott that ensued because of General Washington's strong protest to the British, the late Huddy was described as falling under the protection of King's law even though he were an "alien, Jew or outlaw." 

 

4.  After the war ended and the British and Loyalists departed, Jewstown faded from memory.  The Harts, and other families of Jewish ancestry who wanted to, soon fully assimilated within the surrounding Christian population.

 

5.   Elizabeth Poole Stillwagon d. 1831 in Connellsville, Fayette Co., PA age 103, was the widow of Peter Stillwagon amember of the 5th PA Regiment under Col. Anthony Wayne and by 1780 a resident of Shrewsbury, NJ where he served in the NJ Militia under Capt. Stephen Fleming, Col. Holmes and General David Forman. Captured near Eatontown, NJ and held in the Sugar House.  In her old age she applied for a pension as a widow of a war veteran and dicated a letter about her experiences during the war. Her house was looted and burned by "British Troops" probably loyalists under command of Capt. David Smith. She then moved in with the widow of Capt. Huddy's who had been hung after his capture.

 

Cattrin first married Levy Hart, 18139, M. Levy died in 1775 in Monmouth Co., NJ.

 

1.   The original proprietor of Hart's Tavern, located in the center of Jewstown, was Levy Hart, a Jewish businessman in partnership with Jonas Solomon, another Jewish merchant in nearby Freehold.  The centrality of Hart's Tavern was probably the reason this little community was unofficially designated as Jewstown.

 

They had one child:

      133            i.          Ebenezer, 18141, M (1761-1831)

 

Cattrin second married Capt. Joshua Huddy, 18142, M. Joshua died on 12 Apr 1782 in Highlands, Monmouth Co., NJ.

 

1.  The Search for “Jewstown,” Monmouth County, 1787, By Jean Klerman

After Levy Hart died in 1775, Catherine, his widow, married Joshua Huddy, who was to become Monmouth County's most illustrious patriot.  Huddy, a captain in the militia, used the tavern as a meeting place for his company.

 

“The fighting between local Patriots (Rebels) and Loyalists continued for more than four years after the British and American armies departed the battlefield at Monmouth.  One of these skirmishes occurred in 1780 when a band of 60 Loyalists attacked the “Jewstown” home of Captain Huddy.  Huddy escaped capture then but was not so lucky two years later when he was taken into British custody defending the fort at Toms River.”

 

“While a prisoner under the command of Loyalist officer Richard Lippincott, Huddy was summarily hung in retaliation for the death of Lippincott's brother-in-law at the hands of Rebel militia.  At the court-martial of Lippincott that ensued because of General Washington's strong protest to the British, the late Huddy was described as falling under the protection of King's law even though he were an "alien, Jew or outlaw." 

 

“Although Huddy himself was not Jewish, his wife's first husband was, as were several of his neighbors and colleagues.  His sister-in-law's children as well as his own stepchildren were half-Jewish.  Lippincott was exonerated.  It was not murder, the court reasoned, if the victim was an "enemy" alien, Jew or outlaw.”

Some time during or just prior to 1787 Hezekiah moved from the Pittsburgh area of Pennsylvania to Montgomery County, VA and this would also coincide with the approximate time that his first wife Amelia died. Hezekiah appears on the 1787, 1788, and 1790 Montgomery County, VA tax lists. In 1790 his residence was along "Reed Creek, Crab Orchard Fork of Little Walkers Creek."

Hezekiah Applegate, a Revolutionary soldier and the first known ancestor of this branch of the family, was in Montgomery County, Virginia at an early date, and where he was married by Hezekiah Whitt, a Baptist minister, to Sarah Briton (Brittain), who was most likely related to the Britains who eventually settled in Southwestern Virginia.  Their marriage record appears on an undated list of marriages by Hezekiah Whitt in Montgomery County, Virginia.

 

Hezekiah Applegate migrated from Montgomery County, Virginia to Lee County where he was given a grant of land, February 25, 1793.  Then April 9, 1798 he conveyed twelve acres of the fifty-acres tract on which he resided to Stephen Thompson.  (Deed Book 1-87) And May 14, 1804 he sold forty-one acres, lying in Lee County on the North side of Wallens Ridge and the waters of Powell River, part of the 175 acres, acquired by grant____22nd, 1796, adjoing his survey, to Jacob Paulk for $120.  Test:  Stephen Thompson, Biram X Breading, Jonathan X Sowders.

/s/Hezekiah Applegate (Seal)/s/ Sarah X Applegate (Seal)

 

Hezekiah Applegate was a Baptist and took a leading part in the organization of the Thompson Settlement Baptist Church which was constituted in December 1800.  He was chosen the first clerk, January, the fourth Saturday, 1801, and was one of the most prominent and leading members for several years.  The church held their meetings on Saturday for one year in 1802 "at the house of Brother Hezekiah Applegate" and at the Meeting House on the Sabbath.  They frequently held the Saturday meetings at the house of Mr. Applegate.

 

The third Saturday in March 1816, Hezekiah Applegate was chosen to the Pastoral care of the church.  After serving as pastor for several months, in September 1816, he requested a letter of commendation for a traveling excursion with his ministerial gift.  The letter was granted.  After several months he returned and on the first Saturday in April, 1817, he was chosen moderator, and in November of the same year, he was appointed a delegate to the association.

 

At a Court held for Lee County the 27th day of May 1809:  Hezekiah Applegate and James Fletcher were recommended to the Governor, John Tyler for Coroners in the Room of Charles Noe (Order Book 1, p. 116).

 

At a Court held for Lee County, 28th day of March 1809:  "A power of attorney from Hezekiah Applegate to Aaron Applegate was acknowledged in Court and ordered to be certified to Cleek (sic) (Clark) County in the Territory of Indiana." (Order Book 1, p.71) A Hezekiah Applegate appears in a voter list in Clark Co., IN in 1807, pg 29.  Perhaps Hezekiah Jr. was with Aaron IN although he witnessed a deed in VA in 1813.

 

"At a Court held for Lee County the 23rd day of April 1817:  Hezekiah Applegate is appointed to solemnize the rights of marriage in this County in the room of Benjamin Sharp, deceased, on his complying with the provisions of the law in that case made and provided at this or the next court."(Order Book 1, p. 171)

 

Sarah (Sally) Applegate was granted a letter of dismission in October, 1806, and there were no further records showing that she ever rejoined the church.  Hezekiah Applegate requested a letter of dismissal, first Saturday in September, 1820, from the Thompson Settlement Baptist Church, which was granted.

 

Thomas J. Applegate, son of Hezekiah, witnessed a deed in Lee County, Virginia, October 27, 1806.  Hezekiah Daniel Havens was a witness to the same deed.  (Deed Book 2, p. 43) 

 

June 22, 1813, Lewis Milam conveyed 100 acres of land, lying on the North side of Wallens Ridge on Panther Branch, corner of Jonathan Sowder's line...witnessed by Hezekiah Applegate, Sr., Hezekiah Applegate, Jr. and Thomas X Applegate.  (Deed Book 2, p. 23)

 

At a Court held for Lee County the 28th day of May 1818:  It was recommended that Thomas J. Applegate be appointed Ensign in the militia as he had been wrongly commissioned in the name of Hezekiah Applegate, Jr., there being no person in the county by that name.  (This confirms that Hezekiah Jr. was deceased or had left Lee County prior to 1818.)

 

September 8, 1820, Hezekiah Applegate of Lee county, Virginia conveyed 120 acres of land, lying on the North side of Wallens Ridge, same place where Hezekiah lived and part of the tract of 175 acres by patent dated, September 22, 1796, to John Vandeenter for $700.  (Deed Book 4, p.73)

 

3.  Many folks at WorldConnect list birth as:  11 Jun 1745

 

4.  Roger Vaughn has copies of early Baptist records for the associations that covered the area that now encompasses Clark, Scott and Washington Counties, IN.  Ox Fork and Silver Creek Baptist Church records  show where Hezekiah ministered for many years. He is mentioned prominently in the church minutes and records all the way up to 1830.  He indicated that Hezekiah applied ( 1822) to be the pastor of Ox Fork when it was formed but he was passed over.

 

5.  Roger also feels that Sarah and Hezekiah show in the 1830 census as living with Zacheus Sutton and wife.

 

6.  Hezekiah died, most likely, in late 1830 or early 1831.

 

On 24 Sep 1773 when Hezekiah was 20, he first married Mezlia Douthit, 1475, F, in PA. Born on 27 Aug 1748 in PA.

 

1.  If Mezlia/Amelia (found both names in secondary sources) died about 1787 then the last two sons Hezekiah Jr. & Nathaniel are probably not hers as estimated birthdates indicate births of 1791 and 1792.  However, estimated marriage date for Hezekiah Sr. and Susan Britton is not until 1795.

 

Mary was supposedly born in 1784 which makes a big gap in ages.  It's also possible that the estimated dates for Hezekiah Jr. and Nathaniel are off.

 

2.  Birth date from Bible of Aaron Applegate.

 

3.  Roger Vaughn reports marriage in NJ

 

4.  Roger assigns only Aaron, Samuel and Mary as children of Amelia/Mezlia.  He reports her death as circa 1785 or before.

 

5.  Bible record of Aaron Applegate reports marriage in 1763.  The McGrew/Applegate Bible lists his birth in 1753.  I sure he didn’t marry at age 10!pjm1/2004

 

They had the following children:

      145            i.          Aaron, 3067, M (1779-1863)

      146           ii.          Samuel, 3068, M (1783-1870)

      147          iii.          Mary, 3069, F (1784-1867)

      148          iv.          Hezekiah, 3070, M (1791-1815)

      149           v.          Nathaniel, 3071, M (1792-1863)

 

Abt 1795 when Hezekiah was 41, he second married Sarah “Susan” Brittain, GGG Grandmother, 1427, F, daughter of Nathaniel Brittain, 2604, M (1734-) & Elizabeth Parks, 2603, F (1742-), in Montgomery, VA. Born on 31 Mar 1766 in Walker's Creek, Montgomery Co., VA. Sarah “Susan” died in Scott Co., IN, on 29 Nov 1828; she was 62. Buried in Old Ox Primitive Baptist Church, Finley Twnsp., Scott Co., IN.

 

1.  Jerry Applegate's page lists her as Sarah Susan Britton.

 

2.  Jerry Applegate's page lists death year as 1829.  Roger Vaughn feels she is listed in the 1830 census in the household of Zacheus Sutton.

 

They had the following children:

      150            i.          Thomas Jefferson, 2605, M (1797-1858)

      151           ii.          Susannah Catherine, 2606, F (1799-1848)

      152          iii.          Nancy, 82, F (1802-1885)

      153          iv.          James Monroe, 2607, M (1804-1874)

86. Thomas Jr. Applegate (Thomas6, Benjamin5, Thomas4, Thomas3, John2, William1), GGGG Uncle, 2600, M. Born in ~1745. Thomas Jr. died in Louisville, KY, in ~1808; he was 63.

 

1. Died 1808 in Louisville, Ky. He married Mary______; There is no record of Mary except her name. Thomas was the first Applegate who went to the vicinity of Allegheny Co., Pa. with the Wall brothers about the year 1766. He probably brought back the news of the land when he returned and the westward migration began. Thomas received a warrent for 137 1/2 acres in Westmoreland Co., Pa. on July 10, 1786 which was transferred to Robert McFarland on Aug. 20, 1805.

 

Thomas brought his family to Kentucky probably about 1781. It is thought that their son, Elisha, was the only one born in Kentucky, having been the first white child born in Jefferson Co., Ky.(p. 98 of Louisville, Past and Present; Its Industrial History). Thomas had no land grant in Kentucky so he purchased 79 acres of land on July 20, 1792 from the Alexander Hite heirs. He also bought several city lots in Louisville which were divided among his heirs.

 

His will, dated Dec. 25, 1806, names wife Mary and sons, Samuel, Hezekiah, Benjamin, Tunis, Elijah, and Elisha, and daughter Joanna. (Notes from Hugh Voress)

 

Thomas Jr. married Mary, 2993, F.

 

They had the following children:

      157            i.          Samuel, 3525, M

      158           ii.          Hezekiah, 3526, M

      159          iii.          Benjamin Franklin, 3527, M

      160          iv.          Tunis, 3528, M

      161           v.          Elijah, 3529, M

      162          vi.          Elisha, 3530, M (1782-1868)

      163         vii.          Joanna, 3531, F

 

87. Samuel Applegate (Thomas6, Benjamin5, Thomas4, Thomas3, John2, William1), GGGG Uncle, 2601, M. Born in ~1750. Samuel died in Grassy Fork Township, Jackson Co., IN, on 6 Jul 1824; he was 74.

 

1.  5F1B. Samuel Applegate, born c1750's; died 1824 in Grassy Fork, Jackson Co., Ind. He married Sarah _______, born ; died . In 1783, he was recorded in Rosstraver Twp., Westmoreland Co., Pa. with 6 members in the household. In 1796, he owned 86 acres, paying a tax of 2 shillings thereon. In 1790, he was listed in Elizabeth Twp., Allegheny Co., Pa. with 3 males under 16, and 5 females. He paid a tax of 4 shillings, 9 pence in 1791. He does not appear in anymore Penn. census records indicating his removal to Indiana.

 

He was living in Clark Co., Ind. in 1820 when he wrote his will(Jan. 3, 1820); it was probated in Clark Co. on July 17, 1824, he had died 11 days earlier. He was buried in Grassyfork twp. He probably served in the Revolutionary War on the Pennsylvania frontier.

While there, he served as JP in 1837, 1839, 1843 and 1849 and served also as a lay M. E. Minister.

 

Nathaniel and his 4th wife went to Story Co., Ia. in the spring of 1855 and purchased 11 acres of land on June 11, 1855 from Levi Hunter for $100, selling it three years later for $220. On June 20, 1857, Nathaniel purchased 10 acres from Francis Haine and Ellen Haine, between Neva and Iowa Center, Ia.; this was sold to his stepson, Thomas J. Spiller, in two 5 acre plots. He purchased two additional parcels of land(17 acres) in Indian Creek Twp., Story Co., Ia. in Mar. 1862 from William D. Cannon and Samuel Floyd for $500. It is probable that this land is the location of his homestead.

 

In the 1870 census, Elizabeth is listed as head of the household and had land worth $600. Nathaniel helped establish the Methodist Church in Iowa Center. He was probably a blacksmith as an inventory of his estate disclosed a set of blacksmithing equipment. He used the name, Appelgate.
