About Anneke Rushmore

Thomas Rushmore. Dates of birth and death unknown, but he must have

been born about 1693-5. He died about 1753, as on that date, H.T.R.

Vol 4, p 475, states:- "Plains near Jerusalem and 28 acres of land

paid out to the heirs of Thomas Rushmore, unto five ninths of the

patent right of Thomas Rushmore, which 128 acres lie on the north end

of above tract", He lived in Oyster Bay. H.T.R. Vol 5, p 49, of

January 13/1728, states that he was a blacksmith, and that he sold

for œ60, lot 36 in Oyster Bay to Thomas Carman, which be bought from

Joseph Clement on May 3/1725. Oyster Bay Town Records, Vol 5, p 162,

states that Thomas and Anekey Rushmore sold for œ220 to Samuel Prior,

50 acres of land at Little Plains near Cedar Swamp, on July 27/1730.

Same volume, page 22, says he bought from Giles and Letitia Seaman

for œl00.18.0, about 20 acres of land in Oyster Bay on March 10/1742-

3. He married, about 1715, Anneke Hendricksen, dates of birth and

death unknown: both H,T,R. Vol 5, p 62 and Hinshaw, confirm that

Anneke was his wife, a Quaker. I cannot find the names of her

parents: she died probably about 1741-2. All his children were by

Anneke. He married, 2nd, Elizabeth Seaman, born about 1680, daughter of Benjamin

and Martha (Titus) Seaman, and widow of James Worden. In 1753 Thomas

and Elizabeth were disowned by the Quakers for marrying out: in 1759

Elizabeth was re-instated. He had no children by her.

Issue:- (by his first wife Anneke Hendricksen)

2/1. Martha Rushmore, born September 14/1716, died young.

2/2. Jacob Rushmore, born August 5/1720, died December 28/1754. He

married in 1744 Mary Mott, born 1720, died May 5/1762, daughter of

James and Jane (Burling) Mott, see subject 282, page 2.

2/3. Sarah Rushmore, born October 1/1722, died 1765. She married on

April 27/1748, as his second wife, Daniel Cock of Glen Cove, L.I

born October 5/1699, died 1771, son of John and Dorothy (Harcourt)

Cock, see subject 306, page 1. The Cox Genealogy by G.W. Cocks,

New York, 1912, states that Daniel had married, 1st, after 1734,

Levine Kissam, born October 29/1706, daughter of Daniel and

Elizabeth (Coombes) Kissam, and widow (?) of John Carman, born

1707, died January 29/1771, son of Joseph and either Grace "Rock"

Smith or Martha Ellison, whom Levine had married on August

18/1731, and to whom she had borne two children, see subject 536,

page 4. See the "Genealogy of John Carman" by Henry Alanson

Tredwell, Brooklyn 1946, which says that John Carman married, 2nd,

on February 8/1739-40, Mary Smith, widow of Joseph Doughty, see

subject 534, page 2. Therefore either the Cox or the Carman

genealogy must be wrong, or else John Carman divorced Levine

Kissam before 1739. The Kissam Genealogy gives only Levine's first

marriage to Daniel Cock. After Sarah's death, Daniel Cock married,

3rd, Susannah Youngs, daughter of Richard and Phebe (Weekes)

Youngs, see subject 304, page 5 but had no children by her.

2/4. Thomas Rushmore, born January 1/1724, died a young man.

2/5. Silas Rushmore, born July 20/1727. In 1755 he freed his negro

slave. He married on February 3/1753, Phebe Titus, born October

7/1732, daughter of Edmund and Sarah (Titus) Titus.

proved March 25/1826, which mentioned wife Dinah and daughters

Rachel and Rosettie: executor Townsend Rushmore, witness Stephen


3/3. Jacob Rushmore.

3/5. Sarah Rushmore. She married Richard Weekes of Cedar Swamp and

had thirteen children.

born October 27/1735, died June 19/1775-6, daughter of Edmund and

Sarah (Titus) Titus. Isaac was a blacksmith with William Loines in

New York City. In 1765 he acknowledged at the Quaker Meeting,

enlisting, bearing arms and hiring a substitute. In 1776-7 he

freed his negro slaves Sambo and Micah.
