About Jethro Rockwell

JETHRO ROCKWELL (ELIJAH, JAMES, ADONIJAH, SAMUEL, JOSIAH) was born 05 Jul 1799 in Dutchess Co., NY, and died 30 Sep 1839 in Charleston, Montgomery Co., NY. He married Elizabeth MONTANYE 17 Jan 1822 in Charleston, Montgomery Co., NY. She was born 30 Aug 1801 in Raritan, Sommerville, NJ, and died 30 Aug 1840 in Charleston, Montgomery Co., NY.

Notes for JETHRO ROCKWELL: Jethro is the male under 10 on his father's 1800 census. He married 17 Jan 1822, at Charleston, NY., Elizabeth Montanye, born 30 Aug 1801 in Raritan (Somerville), NJ., daughter of William-6, Edward-5, Ide-4, Abram-3, Jan-2, Johannes-1 Montanye, and Sarah Clauson. Jethro and Elizabeth lived on the farm originally owned by Elizabeth's parents. The farm is in the town of Charleston, but the mailing address is Esperance, NY. This creates a problem when looking for records since Charleston is in Montgomery County, and Esperance is in Schoharie County. Jethro died prior to his father, Elijah Rockwell. Jethro's will is dated 30 Sep 1834, and he died 30 Sep 1839. Elizabeth died 30 Aug 1840. They are both buried in the Esperance cemetery. (Fulton, NY probate court records of Jethro Rockwell.) (Schenectday, NY probate court records of Elijah Rockwell.)
