Can you please tell me your source for Catharine CUYLER who married Abraham LIGHTHALL born 1735? The information I have seen says he married Catherine BELLINGER 12July1775. They had 4 daughters: Magdalena (Lena) born 1776 who married Daniel GIBBS; Anna Margaret born 1783 and married Benjamin HUNTLEY in 1802; Anna Elizabeth born 1784; and Catherine born 1887. Abraham died in Richfield Twp., NY 1831. His widow Catherine was listed in the 1840 census in Sandstone, Jackson County, MI living with her daughter Margaret and son-in-law Benjamin HUNTLEY. Catherine died 5June1843, age 111. The gap in years between the first 2 girls opens the possibility there may have been another child or two who died. My interest in Abraham and Catherine makes me question the dates of their births~~~~if he was born in 1735 ( or 1740 as has also been recorded ) and she was born in 1732 as recorded,where were they until their marriage in 1775? Were they both married previously? Did he have children by another wife who were grown by the time he married Catherine? Guess I am just curious!!!! Would like to hear ideas from someone else.
