Re: Mrs. Frances Elizabeth (Hoag) Berrey- wife of Reuben Berrey

In Reply to: Mrs. Frances Elizabeth (Hoag) Berrey- wife of Reuben Berrey by Dr. Stephen Berrey of 999

I'm trying to help you in this search. I live in a house in Webatuck, Dover, Dutchess Co., NY, that was probably built by a Nathaniel Hoag about 1785. I suspect that Nanthaniel was very likely an uncle of your Hoag ancestor. Some of the owners of our house were Hoags and Quakers, and you and I have difficulty tracing them because the Oblong MM either lost or did not keep records of births for about 40 years between 178? and 1831, that was a tough time for the Quakers and many left. The last two children in the Oblong MM records are Ann Elizabeth Hoag, b. 1831, and William Henry Hoag, b. 1834 to Henry Griffin Hoag & Lydia (Chadwick) Hoag probably in my house.

I have not found who your Walter Hoag is descended from, but that may not be his correct name. I have checked several censuses and have found what I strongly suspect is your Frances Elizabeth Hoag at age 13:
1850 U.S. Census, Kirkland, Oneida Co., New York

There is a Frances Hoag, 13, F, b. NY living with the Simon Gunn family and his wife Sarah Gunn, 40, b. Conn. I suspect that she is a dau. of a previous mar. of Sarah to a Hoag. Sarah is most likely the Sarah Carrington you found and is now in her second marriage.

I also looked for a Hoag in Dover, Dutchess who had a daughter age <5 in 1840, and found 2. I did not find a Walter Hoag in the 1840 census of NY.

William Hoag 0001100000000 1010100000000

Murrey Hoag is probably the son of Benjamin Hoag and his wife Hannah Gilbert. Benjamin is a nephew of the Nathaniel who I think built my house. Both are descendants of John Hoag, Sr. who is buried a few miles from here. I could not find William in the 1850 Census of NY. Is it possible that sombody confused William and Walter?

I'm continuing to look, maybe I'll come up with something.
