    Daughter ELIZABETH married a ROBERT BLOOMER of Rye and had issue of six sons and two daughters. ROBERT BLOOMER’S will was executed September 29, 1776 and probated December 23, 1783. Therefore, the ELIZABETH who married our TIMOTHY was not the daughter of ISAAC and PRUDENCE ANDERSON, but most likely their granddaughter, the daughter of ISAAC, JR.

    TIMOTHY and ELIZABETH removed from the Portchester/Rye area ca. 1741 to the Little Nine Partners Tract, Dutchess Co., N.Y. The children were able to enjoy the school advantages for which that area was noted. TIMOTHY and family removed farther north into Albany County (now Rensselaer County) probably to escape harassment by the British. In 1774, he rented Lot #166 in the SHEPHARD Patent at Pittstown. The following year, 1775, he purchased same from ABRAHAM J. LANSINGH of Stone Arabia, Albany Co., N.Y. The lot consisted of 256˝ acres with buildings thereon. Deed of record is on file in the County Courthouse at Albany in Book #10, page 122. Pittstown became part of Rensselaer County in 1792 when that County was formed from parts of Albany and Washington Counties.

    ELIZABETH was a granddaughter of ISAAC and PRUDENCE (WOODWARD) ANDERSON of Rye, N.Y., and most likely the daughter of ISAAC, JR. Some old records give her birth as 1714, but later data contained in the Addenda (p. 347) of reference 10 gives 1718 and that she died in 1802. Subsequently, STEPHEN

    MAHAB was devised 5 shillings in accordance with her father’s will, dated 12-4-1787 and probated 2-15-1806. NO mention of this WILLIAM STANTON is found in the STANTON Genealogy; family tradition records his son BENJAMIN probably was the grandfather of EDWIN STANTON, President LINCOLN’S Secretary of War. Research on the STANTON genealogy does not substantiate this family folklore. [Brian: agreed]
