      GEORGE STANTON OF GARDNERTOWN, NEWBURGH, NY
      A Faulty Genealogy
      George Stanton First Appears in the Orange County records during a subscription for the building of the Presbyterian Church in Marlborough, Ulster County, on August 8, 1763, when he contributed 1 pound, 5 shillings. A George Stanton later appears as a signer of the Revolutionary Pledge for the town of New Marlborough, Ulster County. This George was given land bounty rights for the militia, 4th Regiment, Ulster County, NY. Credit in the D.A.R. has been given to George Stanton, the son of Henry Stanton and Mary Warner (or Blank) of New York City. This George was a carpenter and married in 1757 Agnes Blank. This George, however, died in 1809 and had the following children: Mary, Henry, Jasper, Mary (Wilkins), Agnes (Little) and Elizabeth (Boyles). I believe credit for the Revolutionary Service in Ulster County, New York, has gone to the wrong George Stanton.

      George and William Stnton, relationship unknown, were assessed in 1785 for road repairs in the Town of Newburgh. Newburgh, originally in Ulster County, became a part of Orange County in 1798. I believe George and William lived in the Newburgh area from the 1760, only the towns and counties changed. George Stanton, wife unknown, left a will in Orange County Will Book H/349 naming his daughter, Philena Belknap; son, Samuel Stanton; daughter-in-law, Catherine Stanton, the wife of his deceased son Richard, and their children, James Stanton and Grace Wood. The will was written Oct. 1, 1824 and witnessed by George Hedges, Martha Belknap and Mary Robinson. It was probated Oct. 31, 1827, with executors Philena Belknap and Isaac Wood. George Stanton was one of the founders of the M.E. Church of Gardnertown, and died probably 1827 in Garnertown. (Sources: HISTORY OF ULSTER COUNTY, NEW YORK, Sylvester; NEW YORK IN THE REVOLUTION AS COLONY AND STATE, Vol. 1, 1904; ORANGE COUNTY WILLS of George Stanton and Jonathan Belknap, Jr. in Goshen, NY.


      Descendants of George Stanton (1)
      (2) Samuel Stanton, further information unknown.
      (2) Susannah Philena Stanton, b. 1778, married 1/6/1793 at New Windsor Presbyterian Church, Jonathan Belknap, Jr. Jonathan's will names wife Philena and minor daughters. One of these is probably Phebe Belknap, b. 1807, wh married Alsop Stewart. When Phebe was 21 years of age, Philena deed land to her in Orange County. Philena Stanton Belknap died in New Windsor Township on Feb. 16, 1850 (Source: Irene Gibson, Constantine, MI, 1980s correspondence)
      (2) Richard Stanton, died probably between 1820 and the date of his father's will, as he appears in the federal census index in Newburgh in 1820. He may have been the Richard Stanton who married Nov. 1, 1793 in the New Windsor Presbyterian Church, to Phebe Carpenter, of N.B. If so, he appears to have married a second wife, Catherine, named in his father's will. The son, James Stanton was probably the James Stanton who appears in the 1850 census, Newburgh, aged 40.

      (3) James Stanton was born about 1810 and died, according to the Whig Press, Sept. 2, 1854, aged 44 years in Newburgh. His wife was Margaret, born 1812. The children listed in the census for 1850 were: Richard, born about 1829; George, born about 1832; Martha, born about 1833; Catherine, born about 1835; Rachel, born about 1839/40; James, born about 1840; Mary, born about 1849/50.
      (3) Grace Stanton, married by 1824, ___ Wood.
