An Ecclesiastical Book Belonging to the First Presbyterian Church of Whitehall

Part Two--Marriages

Lewis WILKINSON to Maria OSBORNE, Sept. 25, 1822, of Whitehall (According to an advertisement in the Chronicle of April 4, 1845, Lucius WILKINSON was the captain of the packet boat W.E. Caldwell, plying between Whitehall and Buffalo. His name also appears in the list of advertised letters in the Democrat of Oct. 3, 1845. Since writing the above I see I was confused. The above WILKINSON is Lewis, not Lucius. I do not recall ever seeing Lewis' name. (C.E.H.--C.E. HOLDEN, compiler of these records.) Yes, see X-406. Lucius married Mrs. Mary E. WARNER. See VII-29).
James W. COLLISON to Jane MCCHESNEY, Oct. 15, 1822, Brunswick.
Willis OSBORNE to Elizabeth JAKWAY, March 13, 1823, Whitehall (These OSBORNES were probably children of Russell, who died in 1823, and I imagine Mary mentioned on the previous page was his wife. See XV-286 for something about them. C.E.H.)
John OSBORNE to Olivia WISWELL, Sept. 13, 1824, of Whitehall.
Rev. Mr. LATHROP of East Florida to Miss LATHROP of NY, Nov. 19, 1824, Whitehall.

Ebra STOCKBRIDGE to Barbara WILLARD, Feb. 14, 1825, Whitehall.
Orla HOUSE to Amanda BOARDMAN, 1825, Whitehall (Orla HOUSE was a son of John HOUSE who came here in the early days and was a partner of Peter J.H. MYERS. He died Jan. 2, 1866, and is buried in Boardman's. Her name was Mary Amanda. She was a daughter of Samuel (H.E.S.) Died April 17, 1863, aged 63, and is buried in Boardman's C.E.H.)
Mr. John PARKE to Eliza WING, 28th June 1825, Whitehall (I think this is meant for John C. PARKE, who was the son of John and Barbara PARK. The old people did not always use the final 3, but the children did. C.E.H.)
Mr. Roswell CORBIN to Miss Charlotte SIMMONS, 18th July 1825 (I think she was a daughter of Shubael SIMMONS and a sister of Mrs. Peter KETELTAS. C.E.H.)
Mr. William CARNEY to Rosey MCDERMINT, 29th August.
John J. PANGMON to Miss Linorah GILBERT, Sept. 8th, 1825 (John J. PANGMON was born in 1804 and died soon after his marriage, that is, in 1828. He left one son, John Jay, who was born the year of his fathers' death. Leonora GILBERT was born in 1808 and survived her husband 53 years, dying in 1881. They are all buried in Greenmount. C.E.H.)

Sophia S. KIMBALL to Elias BROWER, Whitehall, 7th Feb'y. 1826.
Gilbert MCNALL to Laura LOOMIS, Whitehall, 24th May 1826.
Robert ORR to Caroline TAFT, Whitehall, 30th June 1826 (Robert ORR died Jan. 13, 1851, aged 51. Buried in Boardman's. Next to him is the grave of Caroline, wife of Geo. W. MASON, died April 1, 1866. I do not know it, but it seems probable she was ORR'S wife who married MASON after his death. A son, Charles A., died Feb. 21, 1852, aged five months. There are three other graves marked Caroline Elizabeth, dau. of R & C, died July 25, 1832 aged 2 years, Caroline E., dau. of R & C died July 11, 1840, aged 11 mos. and Caroline E. dau. of R & C died July 29, 1844 aged 18 days. One would think that they would have grown supersititious of that name. See IV-144 and XIV-310 for notes on Robert. C.E.H.)
Ira MILIARD to Clarissa GOODRICH, Whitehall, 30th July 1826.
Thomas DEWEY to Esther FISH, in the Town of Whitehall, 30th July 1826.

Mr. Clark LOCKWOOD to (illegible), Dec. 31, 1827.
Mr. Daty ALLEN to Sarah BENJAMIN, 10th Nov. 1828 (He died June 17, 1840, aged 64. Williams Street Cemetery. Crisfield Johnson speaking of the outlet of Long Pond on which Amos COLLINS sawmill stood, says, paged 285-6, "Daty ALLEN subsequently built a sawmill on the opposite side of the creek." Under the name of Daly ALLEN, he was appointed a Justice of the Peace in 1821, serving one term. C.E.H.)
Mr. Washington Abraham TRAVIS to Miss Margaret MYERS, 3rd Feb. 1829 (She was Deacon Travis' first wife, one of the daughters of Peter J.H. MYERS. She did not live long. C.E.H.)
Henry J. DAY to Sally THURSTON, 9th Sept. 1829 (She was probably a daughter of Daniel THURSTON, as he is the only man of that name appearing in any of the old records. C.E.H. See I-258 for a receipt for money paid by Governor SKENE to Deacon Nathan DAY of West Windsor, Conn. In the old Williams Street Cemetery is a stone to Deacon Nathan DAY, born 1748, died 1821. Charles DAY was a resident of Whitehall Village in 1820, and had three children in school. Henry DAY was an early resident, but I find very little concerning him. He had a brother who was a preacher and married a daughter of Drake BENJAMIN. then there was an Orson DAY,a merchant of some prominence. I presume Deacon Nathan was the progenitor of the Whitehall family, and probably Henry, Charles and the preacher were his sons. Mrs. CONERY told me once that Henry J. was the son of Henry Sr. and that he had a brother Ed and a sister Helen who married John C. EARL. Henry J. must have been a visitor at Orson's house, as withess to the following ad from the Whitehall Democrat of April 14, 1847: Lost. On Wednesday evening last, between the dwellings of Orson DAY and H.J. DAY, in the village of Whitehall, a Black Merino fringed Cape. A suitable reward will be paid for its return to: H.J. DAY, Whitehall, April 2, 1847. I also saw a clipping from the Free Soil Advocate of Sept. 25, 1848 which gives some idea of the nature of his occupation at that time. Mrs. DAY died May 1, 1872 and was buried in Hartford. H.J. DAY. Is now prepared to jump axes, and to grind them fit for use. Old iron and most kinds of grain taken for pay. November 13th, 1847.)
Mr. Syant HARDY to Miss Mary HILL, Whitehall, May 29, 1829.
Dr. Benjamin OTTER to Miss Mary ALLEN, Dec. 29, 1829.
Mr. Austin DAY to Miss Mary Ann HESKILL, Dec. 30, 1829 (It is possible this was meant for Orson DAY. She was the daughter of Dr. Amasa ALLEN. She had a brother Horace. Their sister was the second wife of Michael J. MYERS. See IV-131.)
John H. BOYD, Esq., aged 30, attorney at law, to Miss Lucretia ADAMS, aged 21, Jan. 25, 1830, witness Peter J.H. MYERS, S. BAIN, Jr. and John KENNEDY (She was a daughter of Jeremiah and sister of J. Pliny. It is said that her father built the house next south of the Methodist church and gave it to Lucretia as a wedding present. She died within a year or two. H.E. SULLIVAN).
Mr. Joshua BLANCHARD, aged 30, to Miss Nancy DICKERMAN, aged 28, Whitehall, Feb. 3, 1830. (Comfort and Joseph DICKERMAN were residents soon after 1800. They apparently lived in the northern part of the town. The BLANCHARDS lived over in Egypt, that is the valley between the old turnpike and Wood creek, in back of VIRGILS. There was a large family of the BLANCHARDS, and practically all of them bore Bible names.)

Mr. Felander SAUNDERS to Miss Jane GILMOUR, Oct. 28, 1830. (Philander it should be. The only reference to him I know of is in a couple law suits in 1842, in which he was defendent. See III. C.E.H.)
Mr. Alfred H. GRISWOLD to Miss Susan WRIGHT, Oct. 28, 1830.
Mr. William COAL to Margaret MCEU, 24th Nov. 1830. (Probably MCCUE.)
Mr. Peter LEBELLE to Minish DODLIN, 4th Dec. 1830. (This name DODLIN, or something like it is the original French name of the family now known as DOUGLASS who lived for a great many years in the Elbow district. In later years the French gaelicized the English form to Dudlaw, variously spelled.)
