Harmon (Herman) Jackson Hodgkin

M, (27 August 1799 - 25 February 1833)
     Harmon (Herman) Jackson Hodgkin was born on 27 August 1799 at Cornwall, Litchfield County, CT, USA.1,2 He was the son of Oliver Hochkin and Cynthia Jackson. Harmon (Herman) Jackson Hodgkin died on 25 February 1833 at New Haven, New Haven County, CT, USA, at age 33. He was buried at Grove Street Cemetery, at New Haven, New Haven County, CT, USA. Lot 49, Laurel St.3

     The Connecticut Hearld March 26 1833, New Haven Cemetery Inscriptions 215, pg 61 and Jacobus give information on the birth and death of Herman (Harmon). It is probably that he never married as he is buried with his sister and their parents with a common tall monument, parents names on one side and children on the other side. In examining the monument in 1990, the dates are not readable as someone has put a white coating on the stone to reduce deterioration; there are also no dates on the cemetery record cards. He is buried in 49 Laurel, a plot acquired by his father from Lavina Kingley according to a deed recorded in Vol. 126, Pg. 359 of New Haven records.4

Harry (Harvey) Hodgkin1,2

M, (18 February 1779 - 1869)
     Harry (Harvey) Hodgkin was born on 18 February 1779 at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, USA.3 He was the son of Noah Hodgkin II and Elizabeth Kimberly. He married Harry-wife Unknown. Harry (Harvey) Hodgkin appeared on the census of 1830 at Kirkland, Oneida County, NY, USA. The census lists the family as: Hotchkin, Harry, 1 male 15 to 20, 1 male 50 to 60, 1 female 10 to 15, 1 female 15 to 20, 1 female 20 to 30, 1 female 40 to 50.. He resided at Kirkland, Oneida County, NY, in 1830. He died in 1869 at NY, USA. Family search genealogies.

     Little is known of Harry, but it is presumed that this is the Harry Hotchkin that is listed in Kirkland, Oneida Co., NY at the 1830 census. This census gives him a wife, age 40 to 50; three daughters, 1 age 10 to 15, 1 age 15 to 20, and 1 age 20 to 30; and one son, age 15 to 20. It is also very possible that Harry is (Henry) whose wife Sarah is buried in Lebanon with brother George and his family. Sarah died 3 April 1851 at age 75 which would place her close to the age of Harry's wife at the 1830 census.

John Hodgkin1,2,3,4,5,6,7

M, (before 1633 - 28 October 1687)
     John Hodgkin was born before 1633 at Essex County, England.
     On this date, 11 May 1654, Jno, Hodgkin was appointed as a "Freeman" in Guilford. He must have been at least age 21 at this time in order to be a Freeman.
He married Mary Bishop at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, USA, on 4 April 1670. Guilford Vital Records, married by William Leete..8,4 John Hodgkin died, according to conflicting information, on 28 October 1687 at Guilford, New Haven County, CT. He was buried at Village Green, at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, USA.

     Very little is known about our progenitor or his life in America. Burke’s and other Compilers of English Genealogy refer to the Hotchkin name in the 16th and 17th century; however, the family in America did not use the name until nearly 1800. He was not well known, yet he married into the prominent Bishop family and was closely associated with Gov. William Leete. None of the records give John’s birth date but he had to be at least 21 when he was made a Freeman, placing his birth before 1633. A book by P. R. Burke, Lincolnshire County, England, has assembled a family that shows some possibility of including our John and giving a birth date. It shows a John Hotchkin, born about 1591 in Coulsworth, Lincolnshire who married Smith, born about 1595 in Bourne. They were married on 28 Jan 1615/16 and had four boys. The oldest son, John, was born 20 Oct 1616, William 14 Dec 1617, Anthony 19 Dec 1619, and Richard 6 Jan 1621/22. Richard is given a death date of 27 Feb 1622/23. None of the others have death dates or locations. Our John appears in the records of Guilford as Hodgke or Hodgkin, but never as Hotchkin.
     William Leete was born 1612/13 in Dodington, England. He sailed from England on the ship St. John, Captain Russell commanding, arriving at New Haven, CT between July 10 and 15 1639. It is possible that John was on this ship, but Talcott, Families, says that he came from Essex, England to Guilford, CT in 1654; however, Talcott offers no proof of this date or location. Steiner says that he came about 1648 as Gov. Leete’s man.
     R. R. Hinman’s, Catalog of the Names of the First Puritan Settlers of Connecticut, offers proof that our progenitor was in Guilford in 1642. A list signed by John Fowler, William Seward and William Jonson, has the estate of John Hodgke valued at L35 0s. John Hodgkin took the Oath of Fidelity as a Freeman on 11 May 1654, as Jno Hodgkin. This Oath placed him in a class to own property and participate in the management of the church and village. On 4 September 1654, John Hodgkin was appointed by the Guilford town managers, as one of two “cow keepers to keep the cows beyond East River.” Steiner says, “In October 1667, the General Assembly granted Guilford, for there North bounds, from the sea into the wilderness tenn miles.” Lt. Munson was appointed to run these bounds in May 1671. To join with him, Guilford on 28 May appointed William Seward, John Grave, John Hopson, Thomas Meacock, John Hodgke and John Scranton Jr.
     Bernard Christian Steiner, History of Guilford & Madison Connecticut , describes the settlement of Madison and John’s move to that area. “In 1650, Guilford encouraged a removal to the area by offering a certain portion of cleared land . . . In 1656 the upland was surveyed and allotted to each planter in the town according to his lot . . . certainly as soon as 1658 the settlement began . . . The other settlers within the limits of this district were John and Ebenezer French, John French Jr., John Grave, Nathaniel Evarts, Cornelius and John Dowd and Thomas Hotchkin from Guilford, Jonathan Hoit from Windsor and Ebenezer Field from Deerfield, MA. Jonathan Murray from Scotland settled in 1688 in the neighborhood that is now called Scotland, and John Bishop from Guilford, sometime after settled in the same neighborhood. John Hodgkin soon removed from the Green and settled at the Horsepond, where Ebenezer Dudley also settled.” It is worth noting that Thomas has the surname Hotchkin and John has Hodgkin. No further information is given on Thomas and no trace has been found of him, nor do we know his relationship to John.
     John died in January 1681/2 in either Guilford or Madison but no exact date or burial location is known. On 3 November 1696, according to probate records, John’s land on East Creek, amounting to 10 acres, 3 roods and 3 rods, and inventoried at 25 pounds, was delivered to his eldest son John. As his double portion amounted to only 13 pounds, he contracted to pay, “when orderly demanded,” his sister Mary, her full portion, 6.10.0 pounds in current pay, and to give his brother Thomas the remainder of the estate, 5.10 pounds, in land, when the latter “shall come of age to receive his portion and orderly demands it.”
     It is likely that John Hodgkin was a substantial citizen of Guilford, although he does not appear prominently in the records. This belief is based on his net worth at death, his home on the Green at Guilford, his marriage to Mary Bishop, the granddaughter of John Bishop, signer of the Guilford Covenant, and his relationship to William Leete. The relationship as “Leete’s Man” 9was likely as a political advisor or supporter.10

Records of the 1st Congregation Church give a death date of 10 August 1782 at Hartland, CT. Guilford Private Records say that they were married at Haddam Neck Congregational Church, while Barbour says that they were married in Middletown, Middlesex, CT.
     Real estate records held by the Guilford Town Clerk show that John Hodgkin, sold to his brother Noah; a tract of land commonly called Walnut Hill and containing about 4 acres, for a sum of 28 pounds in current money. This deed was recorded 22 January 1747/8.

Joseph Hodgkin1,2

M, (25 July 1675 - 28 May 1756)
     Joseph Hodgkin was born at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, USA, on 25 July 1675. He was the son of John Hodgkin and Mary Bishop. He married Elizabeth Hill at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, on 1 March 1704. They were married by Rev Thomas Ruggles..3 Joseph Hodgkin married Hannah Lord circa 1727 at Guilford, New Haven County, CT. The marriage of Hannah and Joseph has not been found in the Guilford Vital Records and is only known from his Will. Internet postings give the name of Lord and birth and death dates and locations.. Joseph Hodgkin died on 28 May 1756 at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, at age 80. He was buried at Nut Plains Cemetery, at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, USA.

     The Guilford Town Hall has a fragile old book that contains cattle brands from the late 1600's. In this book is recorded Joseph Hodgkin's brand with a date of 17 October 1705 and the following brand description, "a hollow crop on the near ear and a split in the top of the off ear." Joseph is listed on a "List of Freemen of the Corporation of Connecticut Colony dwelling in the Town of Guilford, and enrolled in the open Freemen's Meeting on the last Tuesday in April in the 3rd year of his Majesty Reign, 1730." Two other Hodgkin's are also listed but the Compilers copy of the list is folded on their names. On 17 September 1750 a list of Freemen, presently living in Guilford, was published and Joseph and Thomas Hodgkin Esq. were the only two members of the family listed. On 10 March 1728/9, Joseph Hodgkin deeded to his brother Thomas a parcel of land containing 9 1/2 acres for the sum of fifty pounds current money.
     Joseph's Will, dated 12 March 1749/5, and its numerous codicils leaves property to his "beloved wife Hannah." This information gives us a marriage after the death of Elizabeth. It also leaves property to brothers John and Abraham and sons Janna and Joseph. A later codicil, that seems to be dated in 1755 says that Joseph shall have no part of his estate and his share shall go to his "loving son Janna." This codicil would seem to challenge our death date for Joseph Jr; as he wouldn't be removed from the Will in that manner if he was already dead.

Joseph Hodgkin1,2

M, (2 January 1755 - after 1810)
     Joseph Hodgkin was born on 2 January 1755 at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, USA. He was the son of Noah Hodgkin and Hannah Morse. Joseph Hodgkin was a Private, andserved in Capt Simeon Smith Co., Col. Philip B. Bradley Regt, during the Revolutionary War. He resided at Cornwall, Litchfield County, CT, USA, in 1779. He appeared on the census of 1810 at CT, USA. The census lists the family as: Joseph Hotskins, 1 male under 10, 1 male 26 to 45, 1 male over 45, 1 female 16 to 26.. He died after 1810 at CT.

     Joseph was born on the same day as his "name-sake" older brother died and was given the same name. It is rather unusual that he was born within nine months after the birth of his brother Joseph and it is possible that this is a dating problem due to the difference in the beginning of the New Year. E. C. Starr, "History of Cornwall," includes copies of some documents referring to individuals taken prisoners at Fort Washington and held in New York. In one letter dated 3 May 1779, Ketchel Bell Jr., Amos Johnson Jr., Jacob Schovil, Joseph Hochkin and Oliver Burnham claim that they were, "confined without necessary firewood or other comforts." It is claimed that these men were of the Alarms List, within the Limits of the 4th Co., of the 14th Regt of the State of Connecticut.

Noah Hodgkin1,2

M, (14 October 1716 - 4 May 1783)
     Noah Hodgkin was born at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, USA, on 14 October 1716.3 He was the son of Joseph Hodgkin and Elizabeth Hill. He married Hannah Morse at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, on 2 March 1740/41.4,5 Noah Hodgkin died on 4 May 1783 at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, at age 66.

     Noah bought from his brother John, a parcel of land on Walnut Hill containing about 4 acres on 22 January 1747/8. According to Mary Hoadley Griswold, "Yester-years of Guilford," Noah and Hannah built a home at 44 Fair Street in Guilford, shortly after 1761 and just before the war of the Revolution. Noah Hodgkin II and his father Noah I on 15 August 1761 bought a trifle over a half-acre of land of Silas and Sarah Benton and there built a house, the present home of Mr. and Mrs. E. Selden Clark. On 4 July 1769, the two Noah's, bought each, 53 rods of land, measuring 2 1/2 rods front and rear, from Philip and Ann Man (between the dwelling of Capt. Nathaniel Johnson on the north and that of Noah I on the south). Here Noah II, 27 years old and married, built a home, the present Spalding house. Upon the death of Noah, the settlement of the estate gave, "To Noah Hodgkin II, that part of the land that Noah Hodgkin formerly bought of Philip and Ann Man, with the dwelling standing partly thereon and partly on Noah II own land, together with other buildings." The Compiler visited Guilford in 1989 and again in 1990 and took pictures of Noah's home. The home is in bad need of repair where adjacent homes built at the same time have been totally restored. Griswold reports that in the division of Noah's estate in 1786, the south part of house and land was set to his widow, Hannah Hodgkin, as dower, while the North half of the house and went to his son, Beriah.
     Rev. James Hervey Hotchkin, in "A History of the Purchase and Settlement of Western New York," pg 283, comments on his grand parents: "...he was a respectable mechanic and though not a member of a visible church, yet strongly attached to religious order, a serious believer of the great truths of the Christian system, and observant of the duties of family religion through life. ... mother was a woman of strong intellectual powers, and of warm and consistent piety."6

Noah Hodgkin II1,2,3

M, (22 February 1741/42 - after 1810)
     Noah Hodgkin II was born at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, USA, on 22 February 1741/42.4,5 He was the son of Noah Hodgkin and Hannah Morse. He married Elizabeth Kimberly at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, on 28 March 1763.6,7,8 Noah Hodgkin IIserved during the Revolutionary War. He died after 1810 at Guilford, New Haven County, CT. He resided at Amenia, Dutchess County, NY, USA, in 1810. He appeared on the census of 1820 at Amenia, Dutchess County, NY. The census lists the family as: Noah Hotchkin, 1 male 45 and up; 1 female 45 and up..

     The NEHGR refers to Noah as a Presbyterian Minister. He served in the Revolutionary War with the Guilford contingency of Capt. Noah Fowlers's 1st Co., 4th Regt., on the march towards Boston. He is listed in Connecticut Military records as part of the "twelve half-day training program." Noah was a partner with his father in building a home at 44 Fairview, Guilford, CT. He appears in the Guilford censuses of 1790 and 1800 and in the 1810 and 1820 censuses of Amenia, Duchess County, NY; along with his brothers, George and Seth. Neither he nor Elizabeth appear after the 1820 census, so it is likely that their deaths occured circa 1825. The Compiler has searched all the cemeteries in the Amenia, NY and Sharon, Ct area without any luck in finding their burial location.

Noah Hodgkin III1

M, (1769 - 9 May 1851)
     Noah Hodgkin III was born in 1769 at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, USA.2 He was the son of Noah Hodgkin II and Elizabeth Kimberly. He married Merab Turner at Killingworth, Middlesex County, CT, USA, on 19 April 1792.3 Noah Hodgkin III appeared on the census of 1810 at Caledonia, Livingston County, NY, USA. The census lists the family as: Noah Ho-kins, 1 males under 10, 1 male 10 to 16, 2 males 26, 45, 3 females under 10, 1 female 10 to 16, 1 female 16 to 26, 1 female 26 to 45.. He died on 9 May 1851 at Caledonia, Livingston County, NY. Belcoda Baptist Church records give the death as 11 June 1851.. He was buried at Caledonia Rural Cemetery, at Caledonia, Livingston County, NY, USA. He is buried in Lot 140 of the Presbyterian Stone Church next to his wife and son Augustus..

     Noah is the only child of Noah II whose birth is not recorded either in the Barbour Collection or the Guilford Vital Records, and he is not the same Noah as Noah II and Mariah’s first child Noah, born in 1763. That Noah's birth and death is clearly stated in the GVR as occurring on the same day. Noah III can only be tied to the family by a land record; where Noah sells "My brother Seth" an acre and a half of land in Guilford, between their respective homesteads.      Noah III appears first in the 1810 census of Caledonia, Genesee Co., NY as Noah Ho-kins, with four male children and five female children. We don't find him at the 1820 census but find him again at the 1830 census of Caledonia with three male children and three female children.
     Baptismal records are found at the North Madison Church for Sally and Augustus but not for any other of the children. Noah was a member of the Stone Baptist Church in Caledonia during the early 1800’s; the membership lists also show William and Abraham Eli. Abram may refer to either Abram Sr. or Abram Jr; William is possibly Augustus's son William A.
     Noah prepared a Will, dated 28 November 1850 and recorded 8 May 1845 in which he gives all of his possessions to his son Augustus for his kind care during Noah's lifetime. He lists a property in Caledonia, which he says has been recently occupied by him as a dwelling and grocery store. He asks that from the proceeds of his properties a monument be placed on the grave of himself and his wife Merab, Augustus' mother. No other heirs are mentioned in the Will as receiving property but a legal advertisement in the Albany, NY Argus, March 1854 identifies some of his descendants. "The people of the State of New York by the grace of God to Sally Jones, County of Crawford, PA; Daniel B. Hotchkin of Crawford, PA; Anna Jones, County of Jackson, MI; Elizabeth Cory, Wayne County, MI; Job Kennison and Alansing Kennison, place of residence unknown; Abram E. Hotchkin, town of Newfane, Niagara County, NY; James H. Hotchkin, town of Wilson, Niagara County, NY; George W. Hotchkin, special guardian for James Kennison and Mary Taggart, who were under 21 years of age; Hannah Delaney, late of the state of Michigan, believed to be deceased but have no way of knowing". Another document with the Will refers to Hannah Delaney, believed to be deceased, late of the state of Michigan, and not known whether she left children. This second document says that Mary Taggart was from Caledonia. This Mary Taggart, a minor must be a daughter of another female member of Noah's family that we don't have identified.
     The mention of Abram E. Hotchkin and James H. Hotchkin, the sons of Abram Eli Hotchkin Sr., is the only known evidence that Abram Eli Sr is a son of Noah III. At the 1850 census of Caledonia, Noah is shown as living with William and Elizabeth Sullivan, age 81 and also with his son Augustus, age 80.
     Noah and his wife Merab are buried in the Union Presbyterian Church Cemetery, 3177 Church St, Caledonia (Stone Church), Lot 140 (far west corner of the cemetery). The compiler has visited this cemetery and there are no markers on this grave; however, Mrs. Rives, the neighbor next to the cemetery, has a plot layout, which lists this group of graves as Hochkis. Augustus and his wife Adeline Nelson are believed to be buried in adjacent Lot 141, which was owned by the Clark-Nelson families, and Adeline's name is inscribed on a stone in this plot. Ella McGinnis did an early cemetery listing of this cemetery and she lists Augustus Kotchkin, Constable 1833. There are no markers on the grave as provided for in Noah's Will.
     In David Leathersick's written memories of Caledonia, Old Days In Caledonia, 1906, he writes that Noah Hotchkin and his sons were a well known family around Caledonia. Noah owned and operated "Noah's Ark," a restaurant located on Main Street. He had a peg leg made of an old time socket and a round stick strapped to his thigh.4
