Hoyt families in Delaware County, NY
Posted by: Marilyn Hoyt (ID *****7744) Date: December 30, 2004 at 11:22:13

David W. Hoyt's major work on the Hoyt family notes that most of the children of Elijah Hoyt (1734-1804)of Norwalk, CT (md. 1st Mary Raymond and 2nd Abigail Bishop)settled in Delaware Co., NY. Except for Elijah's son Samuel, DWH does not gives names of grandchildren of Elijah by second wife, Abigail. I am wondering if anyone has records that show the families of the children of Elijah as follows:

Andrew Hoyt b. 1768 md Ruth Richards
Benaijah Hoyt md. third cousin Rhoda Hoyt
Eunice Hoyt md. third cousin Seth Hoyt
Abigail Hoyt md. third cousin Stephen Hoyt

I have been able to determine that Andrew and Ruth had a daughter Melissa Hoyt who married George Palmer. Census reports 1810 through 1840 suggest that Andrew and Ruth probably had three daughters and two sons.

Any information or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
