Roxanna (Roxa) Leete

F, (19 August 1806 - 17 January 1875)
     Roxanna (Roxa) Leete was born on 19 August 1806 at Milton, Chittenden County, VT, USA.1 She was the daughter of Miles Leete and Elizabeth (Betsey) Hubbard. Roxanna (Roxa) Leete married James Prentiss Goodwin, son of Benjamin Goodwin and Abigail Hutchinson, in 1826 at Peru, Clinton County, NY, USA. US & International Marriage Records 1560- 1900.. Roxanna (Roxa) Leete died on 17 January 1875 at Sacramento, Sacramento County, CA, USA, at age 68. Copied from findagrave.com: created by NEBORD


Roxcy's nickname is seen variously as "Roxy," "Roxey," and "Roxcy."

Roxcy was married in Peru, Clinton Co, NY on April 11, 1873 to James Prentiss Goodwin. James died in Bremer County, Iowa Feb. 26, 1873, after which Roxcy went to live with family in Sacramento, California.

Her funeral was at 11:00 AM on January 19, 1875 in the home of her niece, Mary E. Michener 1813 H Street, Sacramento, California. Mary Michener was the daughter of Roxy's sister Mrs. Richard (Elizabeth) FitzGerald.

In 1998 the following information came from Tom Henry (family researcher): Roxcy was buried in New Helvetia Cemetery at Alhambra and "J" streets in Sacrament, CA. It was Sacramento's very first cemetery. But in 1955-56 the city removed the bodies from that cemetery to build Sutter Junior High School on that spot. Those graves that were unmarked and unidentified were reinterred at East Lawn Cemetery at 43rd and Folsom Blvd. Those graves with markers but no claiming heirs were reinterred at City Cemetery, 10th and Broadway. Those having markers and claimed by heirs were reinterred in various cemeteries in the Sacrament area, including St. Joseph's; Masonic and the I.O.O.F., among others. So where is Roxcy buried? No one knows! It is an unmarked grave in one of several cemeteries in Sacrament.

From the Sacramento Union newspaper 19 January 1875: "Died -- Sacramento 17 January -- Roxy L. Goodwin, a native of Vermont, 69 years. Funeral from residence of Mrs. Michener, H Street, between 18th and 19th, at 11: A. M. today. Friends are invited to attend."

Died of Typhoid Pneumonia, Dr. Clark. Cemetery--N.H. From the "Register of City Cemeteries." filmed at Sacramento, CA. (Note -- we've learned that N.H. means New Helvetia Cemetery.)

Levi Franklin "Frank" 1827-1881
Morlandorf Orleff "Moe" 1829-1910

Died: April 16, 1683, Hartford, Connecticut
William Leete was born about 1613 in Dodington, Huntingdonshire, England, the son of John Leete and Anne Shute, daughter of Robert Shute, a judge of the king's court. His grandfather's legal experience may have influenced William to go into the practice of law. He became registrar for the Bishop of Ely's Court at Cambridge, England, which was investigating the activities of the Puritans, and became converted to Puritan beliefs. In May 1639, he, with his wife, Ann, and their young child, left England for Quinnipiac (New Haven) with the Rev. Henry Whitfield's party.
Leete was an original planter (settler) of Guilford, being one of the 25 who signed the covenant of the Whitfield Company on June 1, 1639 and among those who purchased Indian lands in 1639 and 1641. On June 19, 1643 he became one of the seven founders of the First Congregational Church of Guilford. In that year he also served as a representative from Guilford to a meeting in New Haven that led to the formation of the New Haven Colony.
William Leete's civic service continued through the following years. He served as Guilford Town Clerk for 22 years and was Magistrate of Guilford from 1651 to 1658. He was one of the Deputies from Guilford to the General Court of the New Haven Colony for every session between 1643 and 1649, and was Deputy Governor of the New Haven Colony from 1658 to 1661. While Leete was serving as Deputy Governor and Chief Magistrate of the New Haven Colony, royal agents sought his assistance in capturing Edward Whalley and William Goffe, two former English judges known as "regicides", wanted by King Charles II for signing the death warrant of his father, Charles I. Leete cooperated enough to avoid charges of obstructing justice but not enough to insure the capture of the fugitives.
William Leete became acting Governor of the New Haven Colony when Governor Francis Newman died on November 18, 1660. He was officially elected Governor of the New Haven Colony in May of 1661. In 1662, John Winthrop gained a charter from the Crown for the Connecticut Colony granting it lands from the Pawcatuck River westward to the "South Sea" (i.e., Pacific Ocean). The charter also merged the New Haven Colony with the Connecticut Colony. Neither colony had legal status). Leete initially protested to the United Colony commissioners in Boston. Many residents of the New Haven Colony were so upset by the union that they left for a new settlement at Newark, New Jersey. Lands were laid out for Leete there, but by the summer of 1663 he had begun to work towards the union of the New Haven and Connecticut Colonies. He ultimately chose to remain in Connecticut.
In October 1664, prior to the absorption of the New Haven Colony by the Connecticut Colony, William Leete received a provisional appointment as an Assistant to the Connecticut General Court. His efforts to insure that unification was done "in a righteous & amicable way" and willingness to serve in the unified colony's government helped dispel the concerns of many unhappy residents of the New Haven Colony. As a reward for his efforts in the unification, Leete was granted 300 acres "for a farme" by the Connecticut General Court in 1667.
Leete was reelected Assistant yearly until he was elected Deputy Governor of the Connecticut Colony in May 1669. He assumed some of the duties of Governor when Governor John Winthrop went to Boston to attend meetings of the New England colonies and more of the duties later as Winthrop's health began to fail. At Winthrop's death in 1676, Leete became Governor of the Colony and was requested by the General Assembly to move to Hartford "to attend the occasions of the country as governor." There he faced issues related to the recent wars with Native Americans, adjustments to the border with Rhode Island, and the planning of countermeasures against New York Governor Edmond Andros' efforts to encroach on Connecticut's sovereignty.
William Leete married three times. While still in England, he married Ann Payne, daughter of Rev. John Payne of Southhoe on August 1, 1636. She bore him ten children and died on September 1, 1668. He then married Sarah, the widow of Henry Rutherford, on April 7, 1670. She died on February 10, 1673/4. His third wife was Mary, widow of Francis Newman (a governor of the New Haven Colony) and of Rev. Nicholas Street. She survived Governor Leete by a few months, dying on December 13, 1683. There were no children by the last two marriages.
Following his election as Governor of the Connecticut Colony, William Leete moved from Guilford to Hartford. He is buried in Hartford's Ancient Burial Ground. Leete's Island in Branford/Guilford is named for him.
According to the Genealogy on William Leete,2 he sailed from England on the ship St. John, commanded by Capt. Russell, and arrived at New Haven, between July 10 and 15th, 1639. He was one of the signers of the Plantation Covenant on 1 June, 1639 and when the group decided on Guilford, he was one of the six selcted to buy the land and sign the contract.2
