About Bethiah Reeves (Horton)

Tuthill family of Tharston, Norfolk County, England and Southold, Suffolk County, New York; also written Totyl, Totehill, Tothill, Tuttle, etc (1898) http://www.archive.org/stream/tuthillfamilyoft00aker#page/5/mode/2up 3. John Tuthill, Jr., or 2nd (Henry, Henry), of Southold, N. Y., b. 16 July, 1635 (in England?), d. at Southold, 12 Oct., 1717; m. there, 1st on 17 Feb., 1657, Deliverance, daughter of William and Dorothy (Hayne?) Kinge, "bapt. at Salem, Mass., 1641: 31 : 8." She d. at Southold, "25 Jan. 1688/89, aged 49 years." John, m., 2nd, on 28 May 1690 Sarah, probably widow of Thomas Young, and daughter of John Frost. She d. 8 Nov., 1727. John was a large landowner at Southold. The dates of the birth of his children are recorded in his Bible, and in Liber E., MSS. Town Records. Issue, by 1st wife: http://www.archive.org/stream/tuthillfamilyoft00aker#page/7/mode/2up 5. HENRY TUTHILL (John, Henry, Henry), of Southold, b. 1 May 1665; d. 4 Jan., 1750; m. before 1690, BETHIA HORTON (Capt. Jonathan, Barnabus), b. at 1674; d. 16 Mary, 1744. HENRY was Justice of the Peace, and owned land in the Towns of Southold and Brookhaven. The subject of the marriage date of HENRY and BETHIA is discussed in Keith's Ancestry of Benjamin Harrison. The daughter Rebecca attributed to HENRY, in Moore's Indexes of Southold Genealogies, is doubtless only an error of type, as HENRY's will (Lib. 17, p. 118, N. Y. City Wills) cited as authority, does not contain the word Rebecca. Issue, all of Southold Town: 12. i. Henry, b. in 1690. ii. Jonathan, b. in 1692/3; d. 8 Feb., 1741; m. 23 Feb., 1723, Susannah L'Hommedieu, who died his widow, 17 May 1743, in her 39th year. She was the daughter of Benjamin and Patience (Sylvester) L'Hommedieu, of Southold, and the granddaughter of Thomas Brinley, Esq., of Staffordshire, England, auditor of King Charles 1st.* Issue, all of the Town of Southold: 1. Jonathan*, d. 25 Feb., 1725/6, aged 2 years. 2. Benjamin (doubtless), who d. 16 Feb., 1748/9, in his 23rd year; he is buried near Susannah and Jonathan, at Orient. 3. Bethia, mentioned in the will of her grandfather, Henry Tuthill. iii. Nathaniel, b. about 1694, drowned at sea, 27 April, 1727,probably m. Mary Petty, 4 Oct., 1721. He or his brother Barnabas, was doubtless the father of John Tuthill and Deliverance, wife of Elisha Paine, named by HENRY TUTHILL, as his grandchildren, in his will, quoted above. iv. Barnabas, b. perhaps in 1699, certainly before 1698. It is still an open question whether this man be Major Barnabas Tuthill, or not. The weight of authority being against it, see Barnabas, the probable son of Henry, No. 12. v. Bethia, b. 12 Dec. 1703; d. 30 Aug. 1761; m. 26 May, 1721. She was the 1st wife of Samuel Landon (Nathan) of Southold; b. there, 20 May 1699; d. at Guilford, Conn., 21 Jan., 1782. Issue, ten children: Henry, daughter, Hannah, Samuel, Bethiea, Parnel, Nathaniel, Jared, David, and Jonathan Landon, born in Southold, between 1721/2-1743. --------------------------------------
