In Reply to: Benjamin South/Keziah 1740 NJ by judi palumbo of 1529


Benjamin South DID marry a Keziah (called Kzia in the bible). Bible records: Benj was born 1 April 1740 and died 19 March 1799. (Death date an error as he did not make his will until 10 Oct 1799 which was probated 13 May 1800.My 'guess' is he died 19 March 1800 as inventory of
estate was made 25 March 1800). Kzia (Keziah) born 2 Nov 1736 died 4 June 1789. Benjamin married 2nd Mrs. Amy Eldridge an Amy is mentioned in his will.

Children: Mary born 8 Oct 1761 who married Oakey Van Osdol
and she died in NJ. After Mary's death Oakey took his children and went to Clermont Co, OH. James born 25 May 1763 who married Jemima Quigley and went to Clermont Co, OH. Settled in Tate Twp. Lydia born 29 July 1767 and married William Ford, Jr and went to Fayette Co, KY. Charlotte born 1 April 1771 and married Major Updike. Major a name and not rank. They went to Fayette Co, KY about 1800. Benjamin born 12 July 177? married Mary Gordon 5 Jan 1797. In the 1850 census Mary appears in the home of John Gordon. Ezekiel South ws born 29 Jan 1780.

A daughter Jemima is mentioned in Benjamin's will but is not listed in the bible.

The other children you have listed ARE NOT children of Benajmin and Keziah.

How do ou fit in?
