Seeking information about the parents, siblings, and ancestors of Huldah
ROWE of Davenport, Delaware Co., NY.

The 1840 Federal Census for Davenport, Delaware Co., NY enumerates the
following ROWE individuals as Heads of Household. Some [or all of them] must
must surely have been related to Huldah:

and died 30 March 1867. She married (1) CONRAD BURGETT1 Abt. 1799, son of
HENDRICK BURGHARDT and LYDIA [MNU]. He was born Abt. 1779 probably in
either Schoharie Co. or Delaware Co., NY, and died 03 February 1819 in
Davenport, Delaware, NY. She married (2) MICHAEL J. SMITH Aft. 1831, son of
JEREMIAH SMITH and SOPHIA HERDER. He was born 06 September 1788 in

SOURCE: 'Remarkable Records of Rev. Gideon Bostwick 1770-1793, Great
Barrington, MA,' Transcribed and Indexed by Arthur C. M. Kelly, Kinship,
Rhinebeck, NY, 1998.

Rev. Gideon Bostwick was a circuit-riding Minister of St. James Episcopal
Church of Great Barrington, Berkshire Co., MA. He kept records of his
baptisms, marriages, and burials in Great Barrington and the surrounding
areas in MA, as well as NY, VT, and CT from June 17, 1770 to May 30, 1793,
the year of his death.

This source confirms the names of the wife of Hendrick6 as Lydia [maiden
name unknown] and three of their five children as: Coonrodt [#937--bp. 19
Jul 1779], Lydia [#1340--bp. 1 Jan 1783], and Priscilla [#1474--bp. 3 Aug
1784]. All three were baptized at Nobletown [now Hillsdale], Columbia Co.,
NY, which is located over the MA/NY state line just to the West of Great

In trying to account for the other two children [both sons], it seems likely
that one son had probably died [and may not have been baptized], and the
other had not been born by 1793.

Davenport, Delaware Co., NY, 1997.

Coonrad BURGETT and Joseph GOODRICH were Commissioners of Highways, Seth
GOODRICH was Town Clerk, and Hugh ORR was a Commissioner of Common Schools
when the Town of Davenport was organized in 1817.

Revolutionary War soldier, Hendrick6 BURGHARDT, as well as his older
brother, Jehoiakim6 BURGHARDT [my ancestor], were both listed as Heads of
Household in both the 1790 Federal Census for Harpersfield [Kortright],
Montgomery Co., NY as well as in the 1800 Federal Census for Kortright,
Delaware Co., NY. [Same town, but there was a reorganization of counties
between 1790 and 1800].

SOURCE: 1810 Federal Census for Kortright, Delaware Co., NY

This census listed a Conrad BURGET as a Head of Household as follows:

*1 male 26-45 [b. 1765-1784]
1 female 16-26 [b. 1784-1794] [wife]
3 females under 10 [b. 1800-1809]

Conrad Burger was elected as a poor master in 1817 at the first town meeting
of the Town of Davenport.

The commissioners of the common schools of the town met on the 26th of
April, 1817, to divide the town into school districts, which they described
as follows:

No. 3.--Beginning at James Harlow's northeast corner; then running southerly
to the south bounds of Charlotte patent; then easterly so as to include Rowe
and Conrad Burge, and all the settlers in the neighborhood, on to Ezra
Denninger's southeast corner; then northerly on said Denninger's east line
to the Charlotte river; then northerly and westerly so as to include all the
settlers on the north side of the Charlotte river until opposite the place
of beginning.


The Town of Davenport was formed from the Town of Kortright in 1817; and it
is highly probable that this same area was included in that area which had
previously been transferred from the Town of Harpersfield to form the Town
of Kortright in 1793--therefore Hendrick and Jehoiakim probably lived in
what is now Davenport during the Census of 1790 and 1800 [see above].

Some individuals of BURGETT family and some of their descendants remained in
the Delaware Co., NY area after other BURGETT families had subsequently
migrated on to Chenango Co. I am currently researching around the Town of
Davenport and vicinity for BURGETT individuals and such allied families as

According to the History of the Town of Davenport; both John BANNER, who m.
Priscilla Burgett a daughter of Hendrick and Lydia Burgett, and Conrad
BURGETT, a known child of Hendrick and Lydia, were chosen as officials of
the Town of Davenport at its first town meeting in 1817.

Based on dates and locations, it is likely that Catherine Burgett, who m. A.
Hermance Smith, a son a Seymour Smith, of Davenport, was either a child of
Hendrick and Lydia or of Hendrick's son, Conrad and Huldah Rowe.

WILLIAM HAMMOND, farmer, was born in Delhi in 1806. His father, Gideon
Hammond, was one of the early settlers of Delhi. William married Maria A.
Burgett, of this county, who died in 1869, leaving seven children. Gideon
Hammond was a shoemaker of pioneer days. A son-in-law, Mr. Gardinier, of
Deposit, a member of Company E, 109th N.Y. volunteers, lives at the
homestead with William Hammond.

SAMUEL M. WHITE, a practical and prosperous farmer of the town of Tompkins,
was born in the town of Kortright, September 10, 1838. He is of Irish
descent, his parents, James and Catherine (Pursell) White, having been born
in the Emerald Isle, the former in the year 1793 and the latter in 1798. In
1818, soon after their marriage, the emigrated to America, landing in New
York City after a voyage of fourteen weeks. They proceeded directly to
Kortright, where Mr. White bought one hundred and fifty acres of land, on
which many improvements had already been made. He labored with unceasing
energy, and, as time passed on, bought other land, owning at the time of his
death a valuable farm of two hundred and fifty acres and being classed among
the leading farmers of the town. Politically, he was identified with the
Democratic party, and held liberal views in regard to religious matters;
while his good wife was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church. They
were the parents of nine children, five of whom are now living, as follows:
James, a farmer, lives in Unadilla. John, also engaged in farming, resides
in Kortright. Susan, the widow of John B. Burdick, lives in Davenport.
Samuel M. lives in Tompkins. Amelia is the wife of E. N. Thompson, a farmer
of Meredith. The deceased are: Edward, who died when sixteen years old;
Mary, who passed away at the age of twenty years; Henry, who died when
forty-five years old; and Catherine, at the age of fifty-one years.

Young Samuel spent the earlier part of his life in the town of Kortright,
obtaining his elementary education in the district schools and afterward
attending the Delhi Academy two terms. He remained under the parental
roof-tree until twenty-nine years of age, working most of the time on the
home farm, although for three years he worked out as a farm laborer,
receiving for his wages three hundred dollars a year, a portion of which he
saved. In 1871 Mr. White purchased the farm where he has since resided, and
which was known at that time as the Brundage farm. To the eighty acres that
then consisted the farm he has since added by purchase, and now has a
beautiful homestead of one hundred and seventy acres. Here he is interested
in general farming and dairying, keeping twenty-four cows and young cattle,
the proceeds of his dairy yielding him an annual income of one thousand
dollars. He also makes a specialty of raising sheep, having a fine flock of
twenty-six, of the Shropshire breed.

Mr. White was united in marriage October 15, 1867, to Catherine M. Hammond,
born in Delhi, April 5, 1848, being a daughter of William and Maria
(Burgett) Hammond, both natives of Delaware County. Her father was born in
Delhi in 1806, and her mother in Davenport in 1812. William Hammond's father
Gideon Hammond, served in the Revolution, and afterward, became one of the
pioneer settlers of the town of Delhi, where he took up a tract of wild
land, and made his home thereon until his death.

Mr. William Hammond is still living on his farm in Delhi, and is an active,
hearty old gentleman, bearing well his burden of eighty-eight years. He has
always been an industrious and energetic man of business, evincing excellent
judgment in the management of his affairs. In religious matters he is
liberal, and in politics is an uncompromising Democrat. Mrs. Hammond passed
to her rest in 1868, being then but fifty-six years old. Three of the
children born of their union are yet living, as follows: David G., who lives
in Peoria County, Ill.; Walter W., on the home farm in Delhi; Catherine M.,
Mrs. White. Their other children were: Harmon S., who enlisted to serve his
country in the late Civil War, in the Sixth New Jersey Volunteer Infantry,
and died in Andersonville Prison, aged twenty-five years; and Hulda A., the
wife of J. D. Gardener, who died at the age of fifty-one years.

Mr. and Mrs. White have three children living, namely: Florence A., born
June 26, 1872; Marsha M., born July 25, 1880; and Susan H., born April 16,
1886. A son, William H., born September 22, 1875, passed to the life eternal
on February 17, 1891. Mr. White is one of the useful and valued citizens of
his town, and is contributing his full share toward its prosperity and
advancement. Mrs. White is a conscientious member of the Methodist Episcopal
church, and he is liberal in his religious views. In politics Mr. White is a
sound Democrat, and invariably casts his vote in support of the principals
of that party. Socially, he is a member of St. Andrew's Lodge, No. 289, A.
F. & A. M., at Hobart.
