Nathan, m. Elizabeth* YONGS, the evening following the 28th day May 1730, by Jonathan Hoit, J.P *("Ezebaell" in Huntington's Register)

From the Vol I,"Thurlow Weed Autobiography", edited by his daughter Harriet in 1884. He wrote, "My parents were natives of Connecticut. My father, Joel Weed, was the son of Nathan Weed, a soldier of the Revolution, who removed with a large family from Stamford, Conn., immediately after the close of that struggle, first to Dutchess and then to Greene County, New York."

When I found the marriage date of Nathan Weed, the Patriot, married to Mary Scofield was 1787.... and then read the autobiography by Thurman Reed who is supposedly his grandson, state he was born in 1799, I knew the line was not correct.

http://genforum.genealogy.com/cgi-bin/pageload.cgi?weed,ludington::weed::404.html
[After the Revolution a descendent of one of the brothers, Joseph Weed, who married Ruth Ann Ludington, was living in Catskill, N.Y. Here his son, George Ludington Weed, was born January 30th 1800. In 1825 we find him with his bride, Eliza Huntington Lathrop, whose ancestor, Reverend John Lathrop, had reached New England at about as early a date as had the Weed brothers, leaving Pittsfield, Massachusetts, for a wedding journey by wagon and canal boat routes to far western Indian lands]

Edward) THURLOW WEED (1797-1882)
Posted by: Walker Weed Date: April 05, 1999 at 19:00:19
of 1091



The lineage usually given for Thurlow WEED is (Joel6, Nathan5, Nathan4, Nathaniel3, Daniel2, Jonas1) see http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Meadows/7588/month.htm.

This evidently is derived from the Vol I,"Thurlow Weed Autobiography", edited by his daughter Harriet in 1884. He wrote, "My parents were natives of Connecticut. My father, Joel Weed, was the son of Nathan Weed, a soldier of the Revolution, who removed with a large family from Stamford, Conn., immediately after the close of that struggle, first to Dutchess and then to Greene County, New York."

Also in Vol II "Thurlow Weed Memoir", written in 1897 by Thurlow's grandson Thurlow Weed Barnes, Barnes wrote, "Jonas died in 1676.............It is believed that Thurlow Weed was his lineal descendent though Nathan who lived at Stamford about 1785."

I am certain that placing Thurlow's lineage back through Nathaniel 3 and Daniel2 is incorrect. Someone got the wrong Nathans.

My family line is: Walker9, Nathan8, Samuel 7, Joseph6, Nathan5,4, Capt Nathaniel3,Daniel2,Jonas1. It was carefully proven by my great uncle Edward Franklin Weed who was a reputable weed genealogist.

There were no Joel Weeds in our line. Our Nathans 4&5 lived, died and were buried in that part of Stamford which is now Darien, CT. Neither was a soldier in the Revolution.

The children of our Nathan 5 were born (1788-1811) in Thurlow's generation rather than Joel's. My first cousin has the Nathan Weed Bible. There are no Joels, Thurlows or Georges recorded.

My great, great grandfather Joseph6 (1801-1888) would have been a brother of Joel if Joel had been a child of our Nathan 5, but in Joseph's own 1880 autobiography he wrote, "I was blessed with a kind father. His aim was to make his only son (for my brother William was not born until I was nine and one half years old) an industrious and virtous man."

An examination of the WEED family database shows that there was another Nathan5 (Nathan4, Jonas3, John2, Jonasl), but he died young in 1731. Perhaps he had a later brother Nathan who was Joel's father.

____________________
*Geoerge F. Tuttle has discovered, as he believes, that the eminent journalist and politician, Thurlow Weed, was a grandson of Susanna (5), and furnishes the genealogical particulars which follow. Joseph Eells bought land in New Haven in 1773, and when he sold it in 1801 he was called "of Huntingdon, Conn." Mary (6) dau. of Susannah (5) and Joseph was born in New Haven;

Joel removed to N. Y. S. abt 1802, to Cincinnatus 1808. Bred a farmer, he became a cartman in Catskill, N. Y. "Everything went wrong with him, and he was always poor, sometimes very poor."

Thurlow (7) was born 15 Nov. 1797, in Cairo, Greene Co., N. Y.; m. 26 April 1818 at Cooperstown, N. Y., Catharine Ostrander; she d. 26 April, 1858; he d. 22 Nov. 1882 in N.Y.C.;

He edited various journals, including the "Anti-Masonic Enquirer"; and in 1826-7 he was twice elected by the Anti-Masonic party to the lower house of the State legislature. His tact as a party manager and his services in securing the election of DeWitt Clinton as governor (1826), brought him to the editorship in the Albany Evening Journal, a position which he occupied until sometime in 1862. He was a political leader of the Whig and Republican parties. He was prominent in procuring the noominations of Harrison, Taylor, and Scott. In Nov. 1861 he was sent to Europe by President Lincoln in a semi-diplomatic capacity, returning in June, 1862. In 1865 he became a resident of N. Y. C.
In 1866, he published "Letters from Europe and the West Indies. Mr. Tuttle writes "Thurlow was one of the most remarkable men ever produced in this country, -- unique in
type and history.

Nathan*

Name: Nathan Weed
Birth: in [resident of Stamford, Connecticut]
Note:
Some compilations show this man as the soldier who married Mary Scofield. This is not possible as this latter man was too young to be father of Joel Weed. Nevertheless, the Thurlow Weed autobiography states his grandfather Nathan was a Revolutionary War soldier -- apparently just an older man than the one who married Mary Scofield.
*
A correspondent indicates that an unspecified Greene Co., NY document lists a Nathan Weed who d. 24 May 1815, age 83. This may be the man.
*
In Munson, Myron A., The Munson record : a genealogical and biographical account of Captain Thomas Munson (a pioneer of Hartford and New Haven) and his descendants New Haven, 1895, p 1_168, Nathan listed as a resident of Stamford, CT at one time.
