#2.3.8 * Frances Emma Eglin born 1849 age 11 months in 1850 Town of Amsterdam Census
(written as Emery (female). Listed as Emma age 11 in 1860 census of Town of Amsterdam
        Peter's wife Cynthia Olmstead was born 1794 and died 19 October 1837 in her 43rd year and is buried as Synthia Eglin in the Willard Cemetery at Hope Valley, Town of Hope Hamilton County.
She was the daughter of Jeremiah Olmste(a)d born 1762 in West Stockbridge Mass and Mercy Wells born 16 July 1768, both of whom lived in the Town of Hope (they likely lived in the portion that later became the Town of Benson), Hamilton County.
        The following from Carl Hommel (winters) 5903 Princess Diana Court, Leesburg, FL 34748.
(Historian of Olmstead family see Ref Section A#42 ) Jeremiah Olmsted purchased his property in what was then Wells, later Hope, Montgomery Co, later Hamilton Co., in 1793. I copied his mortgage in the Fonda, (Montgomery County) Court House two years ago. On the same page there was another mortgage to Aaron Olmsted, both granted by Jeremiah Van Rensselaer, agent for the State for selling Loyalists's property. This property was along the river. I could not find a discharge of the Aaron mortgage, and in fact there was no other mention of him in the records. Gideon Olmstead came along a few years later. Again there is no other record of him, although it is said he was the first to die in the area.
Jeremiah's oldest children were born before 1793, but I have no idea where.

        Aber and King's page 360 of the History of Hamilton County refers to Silas W. Eglin born 1804 and Thomas Eglin born 1805 as sons of Peter. Silas was not Peter's son but his brother. Thomas, brother of Peter was born 14 July 1796 so it difficult to know who Aber and King' was referring to.
        The 1820 Federal census of the Town of Hope lists Peter Eglin as a resident. The 1825 Federal census of the Town of Hope page 4 lists Eglin, Peter D., 3 males, 3 females, one male entitled to vote, one subject to Military service, one married female under 45 and 2 unmarried females under 16.In analysis, we have Peter D. Eglin age 31 entitled to vote (age 21 and a land owner) and subject to military service, wife Cynthia age 30 (thus under 45) 2 males, one of whom was son John age 7, born in 1819/20 and the other was Isaac born 1824; 2 female children, one of whom might have been older than John, likely Kimma being the elder and Catherine the younger.
        Aber and King in their history of Hamilton County Page 393 states Peter Eglin of the Town of Hope (now Town of Benson) was paid a wolf bounty in 1826. He was still in the Town of Hope in
for the 1830 census (Tthe Town of Benson was not set off from Hope until April 1860). He was listed as Peter D "Eglon" one male between 5 and 10 years old (Isaac) and one between 10 and 15 years (John ) and one between age 30 and 40 (Peter). There were 5 females in the family one under 5 years (Mercy), 2 between 5 and 10 years, Catherine and Hannah) one between 10 and 15 years old (Kimma) and one between 30 and 40 (Cynthia)
        In 1840 the family was in the Town of Hope and listed as 7 in total one male 40 to under 50 years old (Peter) one male,20 to under 30 (John), one male 15 and under 20 Isaac) one female 10 and under 15 years old (Mercy) 2 females 15 and under 20 years sold (Hannah and Catherine) one female 20 to under 30 years old (not know unless daughter Kimma was counted tho she was married before 1840 and Peter had not remarried) 3 persons were engaged in agriculture and 3 were at school.
        Peter sold part of Lot 118 of the Benson Patent in June 1840 for $60. Peter moved to the Town of Amsterdam by if not before 1845 as the he stated in the 1855 census of the Town of Amsterdam that he had been in Montgomery County for 10 years.
        Peter was listed in the 1850 census of the Town of Amsterdam as age 53, a farmer with real estate worth $2310, born New York, wife Ann (Crane) age 43 and children Giles age 2 and Emma age 11 months. Living with them was a Margaret Crane age 72 and as Polly Crane in the 1855 census and listed as mother, Margaret Crane 30 (called sister in the 1855 census age 35) and a labourer,
Thomas Wooster age 21
        Peter is listed in the 1860 census of the Town of Amsterdam, age 65. occupation farmer. born in Amsterdam N Y., wife Ann Eglin, age 54 born Amsterdam and his children Charles (likely Giles) age 12 and Emma 11, both born Amsterdam, Mary Crane age 82 born Vermont, who was Ann's widowed mother, Margaret R Crane age 38, born Amsterdam (one of Ann's sisters) as well as Nancy Dodds 20, Cornelius Dodds 15 and Esther Dodds 12.all born Amsterdam.

        The Dodds children were children of John Dods (#2.5.6 of the Dods family) and Sarah Palmer and grandchildren of Cornelius Dods who was a brother to Peter's mother Catherine Dods Eglin
(see Dods family history). John Dods had died in 1858 and it is not know what had become of John's wife Sarah by 1860.
        In Peter's will of 1850 he mentions wife Ann and children Giles and Frances Emma, executors were Silas (likely his brother) William (likely Silas' son) and his wife Ann.
        On 4 January1866 , Jonas H Crane received a deed from the sheriff of Montgomery County for the property (74 acres) previously owned by Peter Eglin in the Town of Amsterdam. (for all land records see Reference #13D) This property had been sold October 1864 by the Sheriff. after an execution order had been issued on 29 August 1864. The suit had been initiated by Jonas Crane against Peter Eglin.
Jonas Crane was the highest bidder at $427 (no doubt to protect his interests).
        Peter's widow Ann Eglin paid $500 to both Giles Eglin in March 1872 and Frances Emma Eglin in March 1873 to give her clear title to another (or perhaps the same) 75 acres in the Town of Amsterdam. This likely discharged the provisions of Peter's will.
        Ann Eglin sold this property to William Quackenbush for the nominal sum of $1, However William Quackenbush paid the children of Peter Eglin the sum of $600 to release their claims on the property. Named in the Quit Claim to Quackenbush were Hannah Sliter and her husband, John Sliter, Wesley G. Lobdell and his wife Kimma A. Lobdell, William Bass and his wife Catharine, Byron Cole and his wife Amelia, Wm. F. Krouse, and Marietta Eglin, wife of Giles Eglin.
        The Indenture (Quit Claim) was signed by Hannah E. Sliter, Wm. Bass, Catharine Bass, Isaac Eglin, Elizabeth Eglin, John Eglin, Susan Eglin, W. G Lobdell, Kimma A. Lobdell, Amelia Cole and
Wm. F. Krouse. For some unknown reason Marietta Eglin did not sign the document and thus a Quit Claim deed had to be drawn up for her to sign (as the wife of Giles Eglin) on 12 August 1873.
        In the 1870 census Ann Eglin is listed age 57 is listed as a domestic servant in the household of Nathan A Seely a farmer of Ballston, Saratoga County New York (Family #131) With Ann was her daughter Emma age 18 and also listed as a domestic servant.
The 1880 census of the Town of Amsterdam lists Ann Eglin (indexed as Elgin) age 70, boarder, occupation house keeping and her daughter Emma age 30, single, no occupation in Town of Amsterdam as household #525 with Stephen Collins, a farmer.
        It is likely that the "Ann Eglin" that was admitted to membership on 6 June 1891 into the Cranesville Reform church in the Town of Amsterdam was "ANN the widow of Peter".
Apparently the Presbyterian church at Manny's Corners in the Town of Amsterdam had dissolved .
This Ann died 22 January 1892 (Jackie Crane confirms that she was the widow of Peter Doremus Eglin, and was about 85 years old)

 

GENERATION #2
 

JOHN EGLIN #2.3.1

        PARENTS
Peter Doremus Eglin #1.3 and Cynthia Olmstead
        BORN
likely 1818 very likely in the Town of Hope/Benson
He was between 10 and 15 years old in the 1830 census of Town of Hope and 20 and 29 year old in the 1840 census of Hope
        MARRIED
perhaps about 1845/6 to Susan U/K born maybe 1807/1810 likely Vermont / New Hampshire
        DIED
likely between 1880 and 1892
        BURIED
        CHILDREN
#3.3.1.1 Susan Adelia Eglin born about 1847 although every census seems to give her a different age.
She is listed in the 1870 census of the Town of Mayfair as age 20 and a teacher. It appears that Aber and King's references to Adeline Eglin (page 414) in the 1880 census as a teacher in Town of Hope census and as Adelia, a teacher in Town of Wells in 1877 (Page 951) both refer to Adeline, daughter of John and Susan Eglin. She seems to have been still single at age 46 in the 1892 census of the Town of Hope where she was living with her mother Susan. Thus it is doubtful if she had children. Not found 1900 census

#3.3.1.2 Abraham Eglin born about 1852 (Ref census). Not found after 1860 census of Town of Wells.

#3.3.1.3 Herbert Eglin born about 1860 he was not listed in the 1860 Town of Wells census with the family (age 11 in 1870 census and age 21 in 1880 census of the Town of Hope. Susan would have been nigh near 50 when he was born!! No further info on him either.

        John Eglin is listed as child of Peter and Cynthia Eglin in Olmstead family book
The 1850 Federal Census of Town of Gilman Hamilton County lists John Eglin age 32 farmer,
wife, Susan A. age 43 and daughter Susan A. age 3. The Town of Gilman was later absorbed back into the Town of Wells both Hamilton County (Gilmantown in 2005 is a hamlet in the Town of Wells in Hamilton County)
        The 1860 Federal Census of the Town of Wells, Hamilton County (Wells likely included the present Town of Hope at that time) lists John Eglin, age 40, with wife Susan age 50 ,born Vermont and
2 children Susan A. age 15 and Abram, age 8. John had real estate worth $1870 (listed as $187 which seems incorrect) and personal property worth $370. His post office was shown as Wells.
        The Federal 1870 census of the Town of Hope lists John age 57, (he was likely older),
wife Susan age 61 both born New Hampshire (this is likely an error as in all likelihood only Susan was born in Vermont) and a son whose name starts with an "H" age 11. (likely Herbert).
They were living with Mitchell, Kane, Jackson and Davis families (relationships if any unknown)
        It was likely this John Eglin who as listed in "Child's Gazeteer of the Business and Residents of Town of Mayfield 1869-1870 "as a farmer leasing 90 acres from Wm Ashton. John's Post Office was given as Cranberry Creek.
        The Federal census of 1880 of the Town of Hope lists John Eglin age 60 farmer born
New York State (with parents born New York State), wife Susan age 70 born Vermont with parents born in New Hampshire, daughter Adeline age 31 teacher born New York State and a son Herbert ,age 21, at home. It is very likely this "John" in the 1850 census of the Town of Gilman and in the 1860, 1870 and 1880 census of the Town of Wells and Hope are one and the same person as the "John Eglin" born in 1818 that Aber and King's refers to page 360 of the history of Hamilton County.

        Thus Aber and King's was in error as this John was the son of Peter rather a brother of Peter. The Town of Hope had a separate census listing in 1880 from the Town of Wells. Chances are that John Eglin did not move but the boundaries of the various towns did.
        Both John Eglin and his wife Susan Eglin signed the Quit Claim dated 4 November 1872 to
Wm Quackenbush on Ann Eglin property in the Town of Amsterdam. The signatures were done in front of James H. Brownell, a notary Public for Hamilton County. They were described as 'of Hope Center".
The 1892 State census of the Town of Hope lists Susan Eglin age 87 living with "Adelia" Eglin
age 46. It appears that John likely died between 1880 and 1892. Susan not found in the 1900 census so it is likely she died between 1892 and 1900

        Kimma A. Eglin is listed in Olmstead Book page 404 {Olmste(a)d Family in America by Olmsted and Ward} as a child of Peter Eglin and Cynthia Olmstead. She was named after her aunt Kimmie Olmstead also daughter of Jeremiah Olmstead and Mercy Wells

He along with several other labourers was with the family of Caleb and Jackson Green, who were farmers
        The 1860 Federal census of the Town of Spafford lists Isaac Eglin, age 36, farmer real estate worth $700 and personal property worth $700, Elizabeth Eglin age 33 born New York, Adelbert age 7 and a farm labourer. The 1868 atlas of Onondaga County, Town of Spafford shows, I. Eglin in the South West 1/4 of Section #90 about a mile due east of the Borodino Cemetery (no direct road between the two locations)
        The 1870 census of the Town of Spafford lists Isaac Eglin, age 46, farmer with real estate worth $7360 and personal property worth $1400, Elizabeth Eglin age 44 keeping house, Adelbert, age 17 farm labourer who attended school with the past year and Elizabeth's mother, Thersea Dedrick age 75.
He was listed in the 1880 census of Spafford as Isaac "Eglue" age 55, farmer, wife Elizabeth age 53, ,a farm labourer, Peter Lobdell ,age 26 who was his sister Kimma Lobdell's son.
        The 1900 census of the Town of Spafford, family #214 lists Isaac Eglin, born October 1828, retired farmer, wife Alice, born June 1858 and married 13 years.
        Elizabeth Dedrick first wife of Isaac Eglin died 4 April 1886 age 58 yrs 10 months and
25 days and is buried with Isaac in the Borodino Cemetery. The Dedrick family lived next to the Eglins at time of 1860 census of Spafford.
        Alice Case second wife of Isaac Eglin was born 16 January 1859 in New York (that is what it says and shows on G/S) died 14 December 1905 and buried with Isaac in Borodino Cemetery.
It is not likely that they had children.
        Both Isaac and his wife Elizabeth signed the Quit Claim dated 4 November 1872 to
Wm. Quackenbush on Ann Eglin's property in the Town of Amsterdam .The signatures were done in front of a notary in Onondaga County New York and they were in the Town of Spafford at that time.

        Neither Hannah Eglin or John Sliter yet been found in 1850 census
        The 1860 census of Town of Lansingburg, Rensselaer County lists dwelling #469 family #577 John Sliter age 38, some type of a brush maker born New York State, owns property valued at $1000 and personal property of $500 with wife Hannah E age 34, no children

MERCY EGLIN #2.3.6

        PARENTS
Peter Doremus Eglin #1.3 and Cynthia Olmstead
        BORN
Listed as a child of Peter and Cynthia Eglin in the Olmstead Family book
Born after 1826 and before about 1832/33
        MARRIED
likely married William F. Krouse as he signed the Quit Claim deed on Ann Eglin's property in the Town of Amsterdam along with his daughter Amelia Krouse Cole
        CHILDREN
#3.3.6.1*Amelia Krouse born about 1851 age 9 in 1860 census
        DIED
apparently before 1860 census was a taken

        By process of elimination it seems that as Mercy is missing from the Quit Claim Deed and that "a" William F. Krouse signed it and husbands of all the other Eglin girls are accounted for, that William Krouse must have married Mercy Eglin. Neither Mercy or William yet found in the 1850 New York State census
        In the 1860 census of the Town of Northampton (page 534) lists William F Krouse, age 34, tailor born Saxony Germany , wife Emily age 31 born New York and Amelia Krouse age 9 attending school In Nov 1872, Wm Krouse was living in Northville Town of Northampton. In 1880 census of Northville, William F Krouse listed age 55 born Saxony (Germany) wife Emily age 50, no children
        Amelia Cole (husband Byron) who also signed the Quit Claim was living next to the Krouse Family in 1880 . It appears that Mercy Eglin Krouse died before 1860 and that William remarried to an "Emily" Amelia was Mercy's daughter rather than Emily's as both William Krouse andA melia Krouse Cole signed the quit Claim Deed and Emily Krouse did not. William Krouse and Mercy Eglin have not yet been found in the 1850 census (they may not have been married when the census was taken

        Giles was listed as age 7 in 1855 State Census but as Charles Eglin age 12 in 1860 census of Town of Amsterdam. He and his sister Francis Emma were mentioned in his father's will. I did not find him in the 1870 census N.Y CD rom index (at Genealogical Society Library at Cooperstown N.Y.) but he signed a deed for $500 payment from his mother, Ann Eglin with regard to her lands in the Town of Amsterdam on 12 March 1872. This would release his mother to sell his father's lands and satisfy the terms of Peter Eglin's will.

        DIED
after 1880

        Emma received $500 from her mother Ann Crane Eglin to sign off on Ann's land in the
Town of Amsterdam deed recorded 31 March 1873. This payment was likely a payment to Emma as her share of her inheritance from her fathers will. She is listed in the1880 census of the Town of Amsterdam as age 30, no occupation with her mother Ann Eglin, both boarders with Stephen Collins, a farmer (#525 in the Town of Amsterdam).
        Jackie Crane believes that "Emma" daughter of Peter and Ann never married was in poor health in the late 1880's and died before 1901 or 1902. Jonas Crane (her uncle) made provision for her in his will proved that she outlive him otherwise the bequest was null and void. This despite the lawsuit, he had engaged in against her father.She was not the Emma Eglin that married Irwin DeGolia and buried Prospect Hill Cemetery, Northville, Saratoga County N.Y.?, This Emma's G/S says died 20 July 1886 age 29 yrs.
