In Reply to: Re: Theophilus Ruscoe-NY area-b. circa 1760? by Penny Rusco Allen of 273

Hi Penny,
I've been trying to straighten out what I have since I received your e-mail. Most of the information I have is from the Beck Hill Cemetery tombstones that I've transcribed, census records, and the book "Norwalk" by Rev. Charles M. Selleck which was written in 1896. What I have is the following:

My great-great grandparents:

Sylvester Scofield and
Abigail Ann Rusco – b. 7/28/1825

Abigail’s parents:
Hezekiah Ruscoe b. 1782 – d. 1868
Wife: Sally Dean – b. 1799 – d. 1889

Both buried in the Beck Hill Cemetery, Lewisboro, NY.

Hezekiah and Sally had:

Mary Esther Ruscoe b. 1821
Silas B. Ruscoe b. 1823 – d. 1894
Cyrus R. or F. Ruscoe b. 1828 – d. 1915 – m. Olive Knapp 1st in 1848 – 2nd m. Helen Sparks
Jeremiah B. Ruscoe b. circa 1835 – m. Julia Ann Cogswell in 1869
Harrison D. Ruscoe b. 1823 – d. 1832
Nancy N. Ruscoe – b. circa 1840 – d. 1863
Abigail Ann Ruscoe – b. 1825 – d. 1909 – m. 1st Sylvester Scofield 1850 (my line)

Hezekiah Rusco(e)’s parents:

Theophilus Rusco b. after 1712 – d. 1812 – m. Abigail Bouton b. circa 1742 –married 1763

Children:

Hezekiah Ruscoe b. 1782 – (my line)
Gamaliel Rusco – b. 1779
Lois Rusco – m. Andrew Bishop
Theophilus Rusco b. 1769 – m. Sarah Dean. B. 1763
Sally/Sarah Rusco – m. Solomon Williams
Dorcas Rusco
Mary Rusco
John Rusco

Theophilus Rusco’s parents:

Theophilus Rusco – m. Mary ?

Theophilus’s parents:

Thomas Rusco b. 1653 in Norwalk, CT - d. 1739 – married Abigail

Children:

Thomas Rusco 2nd – b. 1680 m. Elizabeth Campfield
John Rusco
James Rusco
Josiah Rusco
Samuel Rusco
Mry Rusco
Abigail Rusco – m. ? Wendall
Rebecca Rusco – m. Samuel Smith
Theophilus Rusco – m. Mary (my line)

Thomas Rusco 2nd’s parents:

John Rusco b. 1623 – d. circa 1702 – m. Rebecca Beebe in 1650 in Hartford, CT

Children:

John Rusco
Mary Rusco
Rebecca Rusco m. James Brown
Sarah Rusco m. Thomas Rockwell
Ruth Rusco m. James Abbott
Mehitable Rusco m. William Lees
Thomas Rusco b. 1653 – d. 1739 – m. Abigail (my line)

John Rusco’s parents:

William b. 1594 in England m. Rebecca

I hope this makes sense. I would love to have some of the blanks filled in on this line.

Also, in the cemetery, there are some names that I cannot figure out who they belong to and wondered if you could help.

Chauncey Rusco who died Oct. 16, 1892 at age 75 yrs.
Eliza Jane - wife - d. Oct. 8, 1881, age 63

-

Emma L. Ruscoe - wife of John E. Bunting 1850-1885

-

William W. Rusco - died April 18, 1911 - age 65 - He has a Civil War stone which states that he was with Co. B. 17th CT

Note: My husband and I are Civil War enthusiasts, and I would love to be able to connect this Rusco with mine. I assume he has to be related somehow, but I don't know how.

-

Ezra Dean
Samuel L. or I. Ruscoe - b. April 13, 1852 - d. May 14, 1914 - wife: Mary Eliz. Bouton - b. June 8, 1856 - died March 12, 1921

-

Charles H. Rusco - b. 1849 and his wife ? (couldn't read it)
Note: He is on the same stone as Cyrus F. Rusco - 1828-1915 and Olive E. Knapp - 1833-1882, so I assume it's their son.

-

Charles F. Ruscoe b. 1858- d. 1879 - also on the stone:
Frederick W. Ruscoe

-

George Ruscoe b. 1860 - d. 1908
Annah E. Brown - wife - b. 1830- d. 1899

-

Charles H. Ruscoe - b. June 16, 1832 - d. Nov. 12, 1869
Co. C - 2nd CT HA
Note: Another one I would love to find out who he belongs to!

Now, in the 1860 Lewisboo census on pg. 38 is listed Hezekiah and Sally Rusco, my g-g-g-grandparents. Next door to them are:

Cyrus age 26 and Alice age 26. I have to assume that this is Hezekiah and Sally's son, however, not only do the dates not quite match, but Alice certainly doesn't fit in as his wife.

Hopefully I haven't confused you too much. Any help would be appreciated.
