Annin Wiggins Dewey

Noah Dewey

Noah Dewey the 3rd great grandfather of Emil Burbridge, is referenced in  Pike County, Missouri - People, Places and Pikers,  published by the Pike County Historical Society in 1983. It states on page 373, referring to Gola Dewey, Emil's grandfather;
"His ancestor, Thomas Dewey emigrated to America from Sandwich, Kent, England, as one of the early settlers under Governor Winthrop and the Reverend Warham and arrived at Salem, Massachusetts July, 1630"

It further states, "Annin's father, Noah Dewey was a shoemaker who served in the artillery in the War of 1812, and came to Cincinnati in 1816."

1830 Champagne Co., Ohio (click to see census image) 
The only Noah Dewey listed in the 1830 Federal census of any spelling. He is in Ohio, in which  Annin, Charles and  Oscar list as their birthplace. All ages match the family members and all members are accounted for. However, there are three additional adults, two 20-30 year old males and one 20-30 year old female. There is also a child under 5 who could have died or belongs to another adult in the household. The name is spelled Duey. I have not located Noah in 1820, the first census in which he was of age.
Family researchers indicate Noah was born February 1, 1793 in Vermont and that he married Hannah Wiggins on February 5, 1816, who was born April 26, 1796, in Oneida Co., New York .

His three known sons, Annin (who was given his mother's maiden name as his middle name), Charles and Oscar, according to several census, were born in Ohio. So  Noah was in Ohio until at least 1832 after the birth of Oscar. I have not located Noah in the 1840 census in either Indiana or Ohio but  he is in the Elkhart County, Indiana Census in 1850.

In 1860, Hannah, wife of Noah is listed in Clinton Township living with her son Charles B. Dewey next door to Oscar. Annin, her first born son, is listed in Cicero, Hamilton Co, Indiana. Noah died in Clinton, Elkhart Co., Indiana in 1854. He is buried in Oakridge Cemetery of that county. Verification of the sources for the service of Noah in the War of 1812, the marriage date for Hannah and Noah and the death of Noah, has not been substantiated at this time.

Annin Wiggins Dewey

The first born son of Noah and Hannah Dewey and the 2nd great grandfather of Emil Burbridge, was born October 14, 1818 at Cincinnati, Ohio. Though never listed with Noah and Hannah in a federal census by name, his parentage is listed in The Dewey Family History by Louis Marinus Dewey in 1898 and confirmation is provided by his middle name, Wiggins, the maiden name of his mother and by her presence in his home in the 1870 Hamilton Co. Indiana census. The  Pike County, Missouri - People, Places and Pikers continues to say;
"In 1817, Nathaniel Benjamin, a building contractor, later a banker, also state commander of Masons of Ohio, came from Morristown, New Jersey, to Dayton Ohio. His daughter, Catherine, married Annin Dewey, M.D., graduate of Ohio Medical College, Cincinnati."
He married Katherine Benjamin on April 14, 1842. She was born October 16, 1819, in New Lexington, Ohio. Katherine is the daughter of Nathaniel Benjamin and Hannah (Johnson) Benjamin.  Please visit the Benjamin family page on this site.

His death is recorded in Hamilton County, Indiana estate records page 164.

From the Dewey Family History
wdbar.jpg - 3561 Bytes

The following document on the "Dewey Family History" was given to me by descendants of Noah Dewey. The information in this document is supported by many internet sources and is believed to be correct. There is, however, a missing link between Noah Dewey (father of Annin Dewey) and his father. Several of Thomas Dewey's descendants had children named "Noah". The location of his birth, marriage, and family names all support a direct link to the Thomas Dewey family from Vermont and Massachusetts. I am transcribing this document exactly as it was sent to met but will add my own notes and research in italics.

Family History
by LMD

The writer (LMD) first began the collection of material for the Dewey family history back in 1883, by questioning his grandfather, then over seventy years old, about the origin and early history so far as he knew. Then the Noble Genealogy furnished much data concerning the several families in the third and succeeding generations. Brief notes on the Dewey family collected by Rev. B.W. Dwight of Clinton, N.Y. while at work on his Strong and Dwight family histories, furnished a still boarder basis for a grand superstructure; all these printed records have been verified and corrected by consulting the original town, county, church and other records; and correspondence and personal interviews with living representatives of the family during the last fifteen years have added to the collection until it is finally presented to the public for inspection.

The family as a whole have taken a pride in preserving their records, many of them back to the settler himself.

After the great victory at Manila Bay, when interest in the Deweys took a sudden start, Mr. Adelbert M. Dewey of Washington, D.C., who had been collecting material for a life of Commodore George Dewey, came forward and asserted the "now or never was the time put out the History of the Dewey Family," and proposed to publish his "Life of George Dewey" as a preface to the family history. This additional inducement to subscribers has increased the list to such an extent that we are able to bring the work to a successful close.

To determine the origin of a family as old as that of Dewey is a task beset with difficulty; the further back one goes the less complete and more unsatisfactory the records become. The Dewey was an old Feudal family in French Flanders, from which the town of  Douai in France takes its name; some of the family came to England with William the Conqueror and settled in Lincolnshire, northeast of London. One authority says a nobleman named the De Wey (pronounced De Vay) came with William the Conqueror, after whom Weymouth, in Dorset, England was named.

After the massacre of St. Bartholomew's Eve, in August, 1572, many thousands of families, including persons of intelligent minds, industrious habits and austere morals, left France for the Netherlands and England: in the latter country they erected silk factories, in the eastern suburb of London; and taught the Saxons to make the stuffs and hats which France had long enjoyed the monopoly. In England these people were known as Walloons, and landing at Sandwich, then an important seaport of count Kent, they spread out over southeastern England; Norwich was one of the cities to give them the most welcome. In a few years there were fifteen hundred Walloon in this place alone.

Thomas Dewey, the Settler at Dorchester, Mass., sailed from Sandwich, which leads us to believe he was of Huguenot extraction. His descendants, even in the second generation were millers, carpenters and wheelwrights. In the third generation, the sons of Israel were weavers and tailors which is strong evidence to support this opinion.

There are Douai and Douay families now living in France. Deweys from England, Ireland, Denmark and Norway. In the United States, some Dunig families from Ireland have adopted Dewey as their name, such a one being at Northampton, Mass.

My Note: The numbers next to each name represent the number assigned to that individual in the Dewey Family History Book.

Thomas Dewey, the Settler
wdbar.jpg - 3561 Bytes
Thomas Dewey, the emigrant ancestor of a large and influential family, in early manhood seems to have become a dissenter and emigrated to America from Sandwich, Kent, England, as one of the early settlers, under Governor Winthrop and Rev. John Warham. Details of his arrival and his witnessing a will are given, allotment of land, April 3, 1633 under the Massachusetts charter. The Charter had been drafted for a trading company. Also "the oath of a Freeman", sale of lands on the 15th August of, 1635, and many legal records given in detail.

He married June 1, 1663 at Dorchester, Constant Hawes, daughter of Richard and Ann. They came to Dorchester, Massachusetts in ship "Freelove", Capt. Gibbs in 1635. They had a daughter Ann 2 1/2 years old, Obadiah, 6 months. Richard was 29 and his wife, Ann, was 26 years old. Richard Hawes, father of Constant, died in 1656 at age 50. He signed the church covenant in 1636 and granted land in 1636 and 1646.

Constant was born July 1642 at Dorchester and died April 26, 1703. Her tombstone reads: Mrs. "Constant Dewey Dye on Apr the 27, 1702, aged 58 year Cort, The Dewey wife." She joined Westfield Church March 24, 1680.

1. Thomas Dewey b. 1613 Sandwich, Kent, England d. 1648 Windsor, Mass
m. 22 March 1647/48 to Francis Clark d. 9/27/1690
Children; *Thomas, Josiah, Anna, Israel, Jedediah.

Thomas was the first Dewey to live in the colonies, what is now the United States. He is thought to have arrived on the ship "Lyon" in February, 1630, when he was 16 years of age. He is first mentioned in the Massachusetts Bay Colony Records in Aug. 1633.

There is a discrepancy in the various records on the lineage of Josiah. Is he the brother of Thomas the Settler or his son? Dates do not add up. If Thomas Dewey the first is the father of Josiah why is marriage 6 years after his birth. If he is the son of Thomas the Settler then the first Thomas must have had more than one wife.

The town records of Dorchester are cited as the source of this data. The family of Thomas and Constant or Constance is also listed in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. VI, pp266-271. Some variances are noted between the two citations.

Thomas II spent most of his lie at Windsor, Ct, but removed to Westfield, Mass, where he died. He was married to Constant HAWES on 1 Jun 1663 in Dorchester, Norfolk County, Massachusetts.

NOTE: According to the dates of record, this would be Thomas Dewey the father of Thomas Dewey the Settler. If he did not emigrate to the Colonies I do not understand why the inventory to his estate was filed in Connecticut.

An Inventory of the Thos. Dewey Estate May the 19th, 1643 in Connecticut. The distribution of the estate was by the courte the 17th October 1648, as appears by the records of that Courte and provision made for the children's portions at ye Courte thee 6th June 1650

(Additional notes from 1959)
Aunt Edna Smiley, Port Richey, Fla. (Sister of Gola Dewey) wrote me the following information and also sent the family record of the Benjamin line, Dewey line, and Allison line.

Nathaniel Benjamin (the 2nd great grandfather of Emil Burbridge) born June 25, 1795, married Hannah Johnson, born May 29, 1797. They were married November 7, 1814. He 19 and she 17. He was a builder and contractor and later a banker. He was buried not far from Dayton, Ohio. He was a Mason and Knight Templar. Their children: Catherine was born October 16, 1819 and Mary Anne born February 12, 1824. Nathaniel Benjamin left Morristown New Jersey for Ohio on September 15, 1817.

Catherine Benjamin married Dr. Annin Dewey. (2nd great grandparents of Emil Burbridge). He graduated from the Ohio Medical College at Cincinnati, Ohio and they moved to Indiana where he practiced medicine in Indianapolis and other places until the Civil War began. The he enlisted in an Indiana regiment and served as a Major which is the rank of M.D. in the Army. He also wrote war news for the Cincinnati paper. His son N.B.

The Dunham-Wilcox-Trott-Kirk Site (1800 data files for CT, MA, RI, NJ, NY & MI) is a great site which researches the history of New England; including Vermont, Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts. It includes many references and a descendants report on the Thomas Dewey family.

This Vermont site has several Dewey families listed. Vermont is the state that Noah lists as his birth place on the census. Almost certainly includes Noah's parents if we can just figure out which ones they are.

A very attractive site on New England Genealogy which also lists the Thomas Dewey family and a descendants report.
