Dear

The purpose of this web-site is, of course, to further the
construction of my personal family tree through the sharing of information.
However, this site it is hoped, will be of help to others in building their
family tree. In so doing, this site will also expose the rich history of the
counties of Huntingdon, Quebec and Clinton, New York as they were in their
original size. The history of other counties and /or townships may be
displayed if they relate to my ancestors.

It must be emphasized that my work in genealogy does
not promote the revival of old family feuds!

As many details as possible of the family life of my
ancestors does make genealogy so very interesting.

“SPECULATION”

Zephaniah & Jerusha were born in New Hampshire. After their
marriage in 1811, they moved to Vermont by 1812. Jerusha died & was buried
in Vermont.

In about 1815, it would appear that
Zephaniah Grimshaw moved to Clinton, Oneida County to be near a relative, Joseph
Grimshaw, who lived in Trenton Twp, Oneida Co. While there he met Roxie.
Supported by Bev’s search from the Clinton County GenForum – “John
Nelson Grimshaw was born 1817, Clinton, Oneida, NY to Zephaniah Grimshaw &
Roxie”
.

Unfortunately, I believe that the
similarity in names – Village of Clinton, Clinton Township, & Clinton County
– has caused some confusion. I no longer believe that Zeph ever went to Oneida
County. I believe it was Mooers, Clinton County that he came to in 1815.

He met a woman by the name of Roxie at Mooers, Clinton County
about 1815 shortly after his arrival. However, soon after, there were wife
problems again with Roxie & she left Zeph or she died and was buried at
Moores. Around 1820 he became romantically involved with his neightbour &
brother-inlaw’s wife, Asenath. He spirited Asenath (Noakes) away from her
husband, James Hunter, when finally, he headed north to Canada in 1822 and
settled in the Russeltown Corners area on the north edge of present day Havelock
Township, Huntingdon County, Province of Quebec.

Tired of the low flat country of the Russeltown Area always
flooding, Zeph moved again. This move was to his most lasting residence as he
took possession of the east half of Lot 47 (47b) on the first concession of
Hinchinbrooke Township, Huntingdon County, Quebec in time for the Canadian
Census of 1825. Note that this farm was transferred to Franklin
Township, Hinchinbrooke Region, when it was formed in 1857 from pieces of
Hemmingford & Hinchinbrooke Townships along with part of Russeltown &
Jamestown Regions of the Seigniory of Beauharnois.
Presently the
road past the property is known as Blackwood Road. From the CVHS Annual, 1982,
Sometime in the 1840’s, it appears that the Craiks built a gristmill
on the Mitchell Brook, a little north of the road, on the present Henry Wilson
farm, just over the Hinchinbrooke line. It was overhauled to an overshot mill in
1862, but seems to have faded from the scene shortly afterwards, being replaced
by more convenient and superior grist mills
.” That mill was just west
of Zeph’s farm on the opposite or north side of the road. His nearest post
office was at Frontier, NY, just one farm east of the south edge of his farm.
This post office served both Canadians & Americans. Apparently, Frontier, NY
had both a tannery & a brewery. The brewery, no doubt, motivated Zeph to
grow a large crop of hops. Zephaniah and Asenath together had 11 children but
were not married at that time. Finally, Zephaniah and Asenath experienced a
religious union in 1847 as shown by the marriage certificate below although it
appears James Hunter, Asenath’s first husband, was still alive.

Asenath became disillusioned with Zeph, possibly because of
Mary, a woman, that was staying with them at the time. As a result, Asenath took
Zephaniah Jr., Esther Mary & Harriet to Mount Forest, Egremont Township,
Grey County, Ontario in 1855. Lonely Zeph met Ellen Sheahan but she died from
consumption in 1860 at the tender age of 22 or 23. Adeline Covey was available
at this same time and kept Zeph company while producing five children together.
It appears that Zeph sold his farm in Hinchinbrooke Region, Franklin Township
maybe upon hearing of Asenath’s death in 1863 & the closing of the grist
mill up & across the road. He moved with Adeline & their children to
Clinton Township, Clinton County, N. Y. His last property was located at the
north-west corner of Clinton Mills Road & Bull Run Road. A school was
located right across the road on the north-east corner, making it easy for the
young children to get to school. Unfortunately, a year before his death in 1872,
it appears that Zeph & Adeline ran into great difficulties. Some if not all
of their children were placed with other families. This was family break-up big
time with the children separated from both parents simultaneously. Ten years
later, Adeline met an early death. She was not even 48 years old.

Were James Hunter and Jerusha Hunter
brother & sister? What relation was Joseph Grimshaw to Zeph? Who was Roxie?
When & did Zeph marry her? When did Zeph meet Ellen Sheahan and who was she?
When did they marry? Who was Mary and what happened to her? It is unknown where
or if Zephaniah & Adeline were married. Maybe they just lived common law.
Where are the graves of Zeph, James, Jerusha, Roxie, & Adeline? If you had
one child named Elizabeth, why would you name another child by the same name 8
years later, especially if the first Elizabeth was still alive? What is the
story on Adeline’s first husband, Mr. Spearman? Is Ellen Sheahan & Ann the
same person? The Hunter Family shown on the family chart is very speculative!

BIRTHS: At this time there is no official documentation to show
where Zephaniah, Jerusha, Asenath, James, Mr. Spearman, Roxie, Mary, Ellen or
Adeline were born.

1811 MARRIAGE

Hunter, both of this town were lawfully joined in marriage by me February 15,

1881 DEATH

Death of Adaline Covey.

Quotes from the Chateaugay Valley Historical Society
annual JOURNAL, Vol. 19, 1986 (ISSN 0319-1249):

Page 9:  “In 1822 Keyes and Hotchkiss got my father to clear half an
acre where the store now is on the Flats and where they did business.  My
father left and went to Ohio where he and two brothers died of fever.  My
brother Thomas and I were hired to clear a spot for a shanty put up by Grimshaw
on the lot where the Havelock Fair Grounds stands.”

Page 10:   ” The first store opposite the Russeltown church at
the Flats was by Keyes and Hotchkiss who started about 1819.  Keys was
drowned off a raft in Lake St. Peter.  John Forbes got the store about
1827.  He was a bad, drunken man, a native of Connecticut.  His wife
was also American.  There was a large settlement of Americans on the Flats:
Grimshaws, Allens, Huntingtons and others who moved west afterwards.”

Unknown where Jerusha died or was buried. It is unknown where
Adaline died or was buried.
