  • Notes 
    • NOTES: According to the source below, Mary Fosdick is John Maroney's second wife and also had four children. However, John Maroney's youngest daughter Hylinda's mother was Elizabeth Weed. It is almost a certainty that Mary's four children listed below are children she had with Chauncey Grames [Graham?].

      NATHANIEL FOSDICK, the fifth child of Samuel Fosdick third, of Oyster Bay, was born in 1762, at that place ; left home early ; went to Nova Scotia ; lived there several years ; married his wife there ; returned to New York with considerable money, and was at one time Keeper of the Old State Prison at Greenwich Village, then a suburb of the City, about a mile and a half north of the present Duane street ; on leaving there, settled in Newburgh, Orange County ; after some years removed to Western New York with his wife and youngest daughter; was a farmer there, at Ashford ; about 1830 returned to Newburgh, where he died in 1835 or 1836, from paralysis, caused by an injury to his hand. He was engaged in the war, though very young, for it is stated that on one occasion when he tried to escape to see his mother, he hid himself in an old building, and when they attempted to take him prisoner he killed a Hessian soldier. It is also said that when he was about to sail for St. John's, his mother went aboard the vessel, and tried to persuade him not to go ; but he persisted, and it was a matter

      86 NATHANIEL FOSDICK AND HIS DESCENDANTS,

      of regret to him during life, for he never saw her again. During his stay in Western New York he met with his brother Solomon and family. His farming venture there was unsuccessful. He frankly stated that he could make more from his garden in Newburgh than from his whole farm in Ashford.

      His wife was Rachel Moral, of Nova Scotia, whom he married in 1788. She was noted for extraordinary physical strength. She survived him, dying in 1862, aet. 88, at the residence of her son-in-law, at Clyde, Ohio.
      His children were:
      1, MARY; 2, JOHN; 3, ELIZA ; 4, THOMAS ; and 5, ANN MARIA.
