  • The New York genealogical and biographical record
  • 5. Jacob2 Corey (John1), of Southold, d. 15 Feb., 1706. A list of Jacob's lands will be found in the Town Records. He was Overseer, and Patentee of Southold, in 1676. He was worth L92 in 1683, while three years later his household was composed of two males and five females.
  • Griffin in his Journal names Jacob Corey in his list of the thirteen earliest settlers of Southold. This oft-quoted list is not supported by any documentary evidence whatsoever, as has been ably shown by the late Mr. J. Wickham Case, and also by Dr. Epher Whitaker, in his History of Southold. The will of John Corey first, mentioned above, is proof that Jacob was of the second Corey generation.
  • He married, as early as 1672, Ann (Tuthill?), who died on the 11 April, 1739. Issue, named in the order given in the Census of 1698: ...
  • ii. Abijah (probably). An Abijah Corey, probably of a later generation, m. Mary, da. of Stephen and Mehitable (Tuthill) Bailey, in Jan., 1792.
  • The entry of Margaret Corey's marriage in the King Family Record seems to indicate that she was a near relative, perhaps a sister, of Mary Corey who married Ensign John King ; it is also a suggestive fact that this John King had a great-grandson Lynde King, b. 6 July, 1792 ; his gravestone at Orient reads : " Capt. Lyndes King, died Oct. 18, 1854, aged 62 years and 3 months." He was the son of Nathaniel King, Jr., whose wife was Mehitable Tuthill, and grandson of Major Nathaniel King whose wife was Experience Young.
  • Tuthill.— Abigail Tuthill, da. of John and Deliverance (King) Tuthill, b. 17 Oct 1670, d. 6 June, 1705, wife of John Parker. Abigail's first husband was Joseph,3 son of Capt. John2 Concklyne (John1 ). Was Abigail Tuthill the mother of Abigail Parker, wife of Joseph Wickham? L. D. A.
  • Capt. William Booth was a mariner. He owned the present site of Greenport, L. I., then called Stirling, which he purchased of John Youngs. The original deed is still owned by his descendants at Greenport. He m. in 1688, Hannah,3 da. of Samuel2 and Frances (Ludlam) King, b. 26 Jan., 1666; who d. 22 Dec, 1742. (Records of the King Family of Southold, Suffolk Co., N. Y., N. Y. Gen. and Biog. Rec, Apl., 1901; Ludlam Gen.) Issue:
    • William,3 b. 28 May, 1689; d. 22 July, 1712.
    • Hannah, b. 22 Feb., 1691; m. in all probability, Henry Tuthill, b. 1690. If so, she d. 1 Dec, 1715, leaving a son Henry Tuthill, ancestor of the late President, Benjamin Harrison. It is possible, however, that this Hannah Booth m. Rich. Hudson in Jan., 1723. ...
    • Mary, b. 27 Aug., 1703; she probably m. on 4 Oct., 1721-2 Jonathan Bradley, probably son of Christopher Bradley, of New London, Conn., and grandson of Mary Christophers, who m. successively Peter Bradley, Lieut. Col. Thomas Youngs, and Nathaniel Lynde. (Tombstone of Mary Lynde at Southold.)
    • Jonathan Bradley's wife d. in 1738. His will dated 31 July, 1739, proved 23 Nov., the same year, names his children: Peter, Grant, Mary, Mehitable, Hannah, and Martha. Grant is to be given a child's coat the gift of Mr. Sueton Grant. Lieut. Constant Booth brother-in-law, and Daniel Tuthill, brother of the testator are to be executors. (Lib. 13, p. 358, N. Y. Wills.)* ...
    • * It has been conjectured that Peter Bradley, whose widow, Mehitable Horton, m. Daniel Tuthill, was brother of Jonathan Bradley above, as there seems to be no other way in which to account for Daniel Tuthill being called "brother" of Jonathan Bradley.


Will of Jonathan Horton - NY Historical Society Collection, vol. II pp.4-6. It is dated 21 Feb 1707, proved 2 Jun 1708. "He also makes bequests to: ...dau. Mehitabel, wife of Daniel Tuthill.."
