Hi Barbara,

RE: What became of Whitestown?

The town of Whitestown was formed by an act of the Legislature on March 7, 1788. It is the site of the first settlement of the county. Hugh White removed from Middeltown, Connecticut in May of 1784 and arrived in Whitestown on the 5th of June. Soon several of his relatives arrived and began the settlement of Whitestown. Among other settlers of the town there included William G. Tracy, Seth Capron, John Green, William M. Cheever, Benjamin S. Walcott, Needham Maynard, Dr. Elizur Moseley, Alvan Bradley and Uriah Stevens.

Oneida County was formed in 1798 from Herkimer. Herkimer in 1791 from Montgomery. Montgomery in 1772 from Albany. So, depending on the time period, Whitestown was first in Montgomery Co., then in Herkimer, and lastly Oneida Co.

The town of Paris was organized from the town of Whitestown on April 10, 1792.

The town of New Hartford was erected from the town of Whitestown on April 12, 1827.

And on and on, and on and on ….. (and lots in between).

Below is a URL to begin researching the history of Whitestown. I am not sure what the physical boundaries are today, but around 1800 in was a goodly portion of Oneida County (including Utica, I believe).

Sorry, I have not researched Winch or Montenoy.

Below is what census index data I could find on Samuel Winch, I searched the entire state. I could not find him in 1810, 1820, 1830 or 1840. This data came from Ancestry.com, perhaps the index in incomplete? The Samuel of Montgomery/Oneida County was born before 1775 per the 1790 census and between 1755 and 1774 per the 1800 census (as was his wife). If your marriage date is close, this is likely not him – perhaps it is his father?

I also searched for “Montenoy” and any variations of same, no luck.
Sorry I could not be of more help.

Bud
