I am interested in Gideon A. Knowlton, who I assume was Gideon Ackley Knowlton, son of Thomas Knowlton and Abigail Ackley. He was born April 12, 1758 in East Haddam CT, and died August 15, 1810 in Whitestown, NY. His second wife was Mary (Polly) Hayden. Lydia Smith Knowlton was their daughter. I believe their son was Ackley Knowlton born in 1786. Did this Ackley Knowlton have a son, also named Ackley who died April 24, 1891 at 74 years of age, buried in Drake Cemetery in Otsego, NY? Are most of the Knowltons in Otsego related? I think there were other Ackleys who married into the Knowlton family. Ackley, Gideon and Sanford Knowlton were all living in Otsego in the mid 1800s, but I do not know if they were all related to Gidean A. Knowlton above.
Gideon A. Knowlton was a Methodist minister and was assigned to Saratoga County, NY in 1805. He died in Whitestown, NY in 1810. A wife and two daughters were apparently at his side right before his death.
