The Frederick Family Tree


Joshua Braffit died (UNKNOWN). He married Mary Mapes about 1780 in Monroe, Orange Co. NY.

Mary Mapes [Parents] 1 was born 13 Jun 1757 in Monroe, Orange Co. NY. She died before 1830 in Monroe, Orange Co, NY, USA. Mary married Joshua Braffit about 1780 in Monroe, Orange Co. NY.

Other marriages:
Smith, Samuel

In her father Henry Mapes Will ( dated 1812) , Hezekiah Braffit, her son by her first marriage,  is to receive his inheritance when he comes of age. That suggests to me that he was born no earlier than 1791 (1812-21=1791). From this it is logical to assume that Mary Mapes was still married to Braffit as late as 1790. Therefore, she probably was a second wife to Samuel Smith (who has at least three children known to be born before 1790  -ie. Eleanor born 1777) They probably married Circa 1791 as Moses Smith (known to be a son of Mary Mapes Smith was born 1792.
Since Mary was not mentioned in the will of Samuel Smith (which was long and precise)  it is probable that she was deceased before 1830 when the will was first written. Nor is she mentioned by name in her father's will written 1812 - Nor are any of her children by Smith mentioned. It appears that the elder Mapes was not at all pleased with his daughter marrying into this family - even if Samuel himself was a Patriot. However it is also possible that Mary and Samuel already had received something from the Mapes at the time of their marriage although I have never found any legal record of Land etc changing hands.

'Hank is the male nickname for Henry  (Hendrick), wherefore 'Hanky' is the female nickname for Hendrickje and should not be read as 'Hannah'... Henry Mapes Junior the father, has no revolutionary pension record of his own, but his service as a soldier can be proved through that of his son John, whose pension claim is S.13831. John Mapes, son of Henry Mapes was born in Blooming Grove in 1761. Name of mother not given. He enlisted in 1776, 1777, 1778, 1780, 1781, and 1782.

Peter Meekins 1 was born about 1790. He died 1850 in Lucas co., OH. Peter married Hannah Smith about 1820.

Peter Meekins appears as Meekins, Mickens, and McMeekins. In the 1825 Census for Orange Co. NY he is listed as Peter McMeekins (2m-9f -with 7f under 16). I have recently been informed that he had three other children (which I do not doubt if he is the one in the census). These are named Mickins and as follows: James (1820-1887 m Angeline), Peter (1828-), and Ellen (1821-1849, m. Peter Miner,1820-1873). These three are also listed in the IGI but no wife is listed for Peter. Peter Mickens (McMicken) father's name was apparently James Mickens of Delaware, New York; and is apparently listed there on the 1800 and 1810 Censuses. James was born about 1756. Walter Becktel also informs us that a Peter McMickens is found on the 1820 OCNY Census living next to Hophnia Smith. This seems to corroberate Hannah Smith as a wife (She is sister to Hophni). However Walter says "Peter's oldest son was James -- according to Mormon records; but he apparently also had an older daughter who was born about 1798.So that would mean that Hannah was born about 1780 and that Peter was born about 1775.There also seems to be at least two brothers -- William S., and James -- who both attended the War of 1812 as privates in the new York Militia; and there appears to be a James McMicken who married a certain Phebe Allis on 07-09-1760 in the town of Philadelphia, but as I said before, this family seems to have mostly come from Connecticut." All this is possible. Hannah could be from Samuel Smith's first family. Born c 1779. But I have not made those changes yet. Note: the 1825 Census gives Peter's wife in the 16-45 range. The surnames above do not appear in the 1835 census.

Hannah Smith [Parents] 1 was born about 1793. She died (UNKNOWN). Hannah married Peter Meekins about 1820.

LIL'S NOTE: Hannah is a bit of a mystery. My original sources have her born C 1893 to Mary Mapes and Samuel Smith. Information I have received since then on Peter Mickins from Walter Becktel has me thinking that perhaps she was born much earlier c 1780. That would mean her mother was NOT Mary Mapes but Samuel Smith's first wife, whose name is another mystery. Add to this, the fact that I cannot find my source for Hannah's death. If she indeed died in 1878 she would have been a  woman of almost 100 years if she was born circa 1780 as I suspect she was.  Her death probably would have been in Ohio or Michigan. She had one son - James(b. 1818) living in Washington Twp, Lucas Co., Ohio in the 1880 Census. She had another son - Peter (b. 1828) living in Michigan. It seems to me that there should be some news report of a woman of 100 or thereabouts in 1878. It all is VERY tentative, but I put this here so someone can correct me.

Surname: McElroy Cole, Davis, Hall

My 4th great Grandmother,Mary McELROY may be the Aunt
of your Lydia. I am assuming that Mary McELROY was the
sister of Alexander McELROY and JAmes McELROY.
From the 1820 census, Alxander McELROY and his wife,..
(and by the way, I had not know her until your message,..)
Sally HALL McELROY were the heads of household,
even though, only Alexaner was listed.
I believe that Alexander McELROY was the person
in the "over 45" category?
I am guestimating, that my Mary McELROY was born ca. 1788
from the 1855 New York State census. She is with my ggg
Grandparents, Joel DAVIS (son of Gilluim DAVIS) and
Mathilda COLE DAVIS, her age is marked as 67 years, and she
must have been widowed by that time. Mary McElroy married
Abram or Abraham COLE and he may have been a Rev War veteran, and if so,
must have been quite a bit older that Mary McELROY.

One other piece of informaiton that I have found is that Alexander McElroy's
brother, James McELROY served in the Revolution, I believe in the
Continental Army and moved to Ohio, where he applied for a pension in the 1830s.

I know that you may not have any more informaiton, or have too
much of an interest in this branch, but I would very much like to
find out more and share anything that I may find, and that
you may find. I really would like to find the parents of both
Mary McELROY and Abram COLE

I dont think I can add much to what you already have on the McElroys. Most of my information comes from the work of Elizabeth S. Smith, who is a descendant of Lydia Mcelroy and Hophni Smith. I garnered what I have from the records she submitted to the OCGS, Goshen, NY and some letters from her. I am enclosing the data I have and copies of transcribed letters from elizabeth Smith which might be of some interest to you. You will see that i do not have your Charlotte in my records, although the DOB you give would make a fit...
You mightalso be interested in the following: The 1855 NY State Census shows the following living in the same house: James McElroy, age 60; Patience, wife, age 58; James E. McElroy age 23; Lydia age 18; Martha age 14; Henry K age 3; David Corter, age 11 grandchild; John Early age 30 servant, born in Ireland.
From Elizabeth S Smith: James & Patience are buried in the Hamptonburgh Cemetery. she died of 'paralysis" at age 75, 16 Oct 1872 (Hampton NY Roster of Hamptonburgh Cem Assoc 1927) Copy in OCGS research room.

I have the same information you have for #30 and 31 of your ancestor table (JamesMcElroy and Patience) Elizabeth Horton, Genealogist of Middletown Ny is my source. she did not always give source of her information.
Father of James was Alexander McElroy b. NYS who had a brother James McE.
Jan 29, 1993 Letter from Elizabeth S. Smith to thor N Trolsen as transcribed by Thor Trolsen for Judy Riley
I am sending you a copy of material on James McElroy, brother of Alexander, which came from Myrtle S. Edwards, a 3rd cousin of mine on the Smith side. I added notes- do not know their source- possibly Elizabeth Horton. I have to get Myrtle interested in working on McElroys, but she has several other concerns at present, which take priority and which I understand.
Also I added two more children for James. Alexander and William, but I have no proof that they are children of James. William I found right along in Monroe. Alexander only briefly.
I have suspected that possibly some descendant of James had been in contact with Elizabeth Horton. Her papers were given to OCGS research room. They are being sorted and filed. So far nothing has turned up on McElroy.
Another copy of material on James- one or two- was in Helen Ror Predmore file. You can see by my note I questioned it. She has your James- a son of James. If the date you have for James is correct and you can prove it, I think it rules out that possibility. Mrs Predmore did give a surname for Patience, which neither you nor I had. That may be something for you to pursue. If she was indeed a Strong - that could give you a Revolutionary War ancestor. On page 3, I copied information from DAR Patriot Index on James and also the Abstract of Rev War Pension Application for him.
If you have trouble understanding my notes, let me know and I will try to explain them more clearly. If you succeed in tracing the McElroy family I will be happy to have the information. I think you have to go further afield than Orange County to do so. Information does turn up in enexpected places.

Jacob Cocks, a son of Henry Cocks, was also a native of Long Island. To the parents of Mrs Shuit, Isaac B and Elizabeth Titus, were born seven daughters.  Sallie D., now deceased was twice married, first to Alexander McElroy, and then to Noah Brooks; Mary ann was the first wife of Mogan Shuit; Hannah C. deceased, married Robert L Gough of Westport NY; Martha died young; Susan C is also deceased; Phoebe B married Morgan Shuit after the death of her sister; and elizabeth is also deceased")
NB Sometimes people have confused the wives of the two younger Alexander McElroys. All three married Sarahs. This Alexander I cannot fit in as Grandson of Alexander. Elizabth S. Smith

Note by ES Smith: See Alexander McElroy- son of James. Would seem that this son of Alexander or this Alexander a mixture of 2 James McElroys. I find Mrs. Predmore has made wrong assumptions from time to time.
 
Lil's NOTE: Found on 1850 Census for Hamptonburgh living near to on page 154b line 18  James, John, Cornelius, is a Gilbert McElroy age 30 (1820). wife Phebe S age 28 (1822), anne E age 8 (1842), Margaret H age 6(1844) Mary J age 3(1847)  I think they probably belong in this family.
