Northup Family Genealogy Forum
i have a david northrop married a sarah harrington david was born in 1756 died erie co. ny 1832 i find him on a 1790 census with an amos jones who was on a deed we found later in skaneteles ny with david son jospeh wanton northrop who went by wanton northrop.
david and wanton lived in swanton vermont for a while1801-1814'ish before going to ononadaga co. ny. in 1820 then onto erie co. ny then into michigan joseph wanton northrop died in 1854 in dowagiac mi, which is where i was born. he was my ggggrandfather.my problem is finding the right david northrop we know he was in the rev. war because his son in law was david moon which we found in the rev. war pension papers.we have a paper with family info so far it has been right it was from the seattle genealogical society. joseph wanton states he was born in greenville rhode island which is now smithville ri. i think they may have made a mistake on this because greewich has david northup with amos jones which as i said we find him as a witness with wanton northrop.we have traced this line for sometime now.forgive me for jumping all over but david in the rev war papers states he walked from northkingstown rhode island to join the service.but the conflict comes in because consuelo northrop bailey family came from conn. migrated up into swanton and fairfield conn. he fits this profile. i am confused to whether he is origally from rhode island or conn. there are two david's on the rev war rooster,ours is the one from northkingtown rhode island but i cannot find him in that line due to his age matching up. he said he had a brother stephen who was a fisherman he too was in the rev. war. but there is also two of them. just wondering if you have seperated these two and have any more info. thanks linda northrop sturgill
