I'm interested in the family of Johannes Cortright & Susanna Kittle. He was her 2nd husband & she was the d/o Richard & Sarah Van Etten Kittle. John & Susanna had 5 children baptized in the Machackemack RDC, Orange Co., NY. Gisbert Apr 3, 1763, Samuel Feb 9, 1767, Elizabeth Aug 17, 1795 (that's no typo, she was born 3/29/1772), Susanna Aug 24, 1777 & Johannes Nov 1, 1780.
Elizabeth's baptism was obviously recorded in 1795, probably so she could marry as she did c1798 to Josephus Westbrook. Other than Elizabeth I have no birth dates for these children, & not all the baptisms were of infants so we can't always assume they were baptized the same year they were born.
Which leads me to my problem. I believe that Johannes Cortright who was bap. in 1780 is my ancestor John Courtright. According to census records his birth varies from 1775-1780. He married Mary Clark 1797 in Sussex Co., NJ. They had a daughter Sarah in 1798 & her baptism is recorded in the same church mentioned above. However her bap. was not recorded until 10/14/1807. 35 children were recorded that day, a real record & most were born 1798-1800. Among the other 35 children was Jeremiah Kittle, s/o Peter Kittle & Elenor Shimer. Little Jeremiah was born 2/3/1799.
John & Mary Clark cortright moved to the Pittsburgh, PA area by 1800. In 1818 they moved to Columbiana Co., OH, in 1830 to Jefferson Co., OH where I last find a record of them in the census for that year. They had 10 chldren. Any & all clues welcome!
