Thomas Farrington
206 Somehow I don't agree that this is the correct placement of this Thomas Farrington who named his sons, viz, Thomas, born about 1740, Benjamin, born about 1742, Robert, born about 1744, Jonas, born May 26, 1754, and Marston, born 1756. The subject Thomas did not name a son Edmund, Edward, Matthew, etc.

Margaret's father Cornelius Marston refers to his daughter Margaret as NOW the wife of Thomas Farrington of Westchester County, and refers to his property at Jamaica, Flushing and "elsewhere."

Meanwhile, we have Thomas Farrington (9) born about 1650, Flushing, who was owed money in 1675 from George Tippett of Yonkers, according to the latter's inventory taken in 1675.

Thomas Valentine, born November 29, 1712, died December 21, 1796, Westchester County, was a son of Matthew Farrington and Hannah Embree, who married Susan Oakley. One of Matthew Farrington's daughters, Jane Farrington, born in Flushing, New York married a John NORRIS.

Until substantiated with further documented information, this cannot be accepted as an accurate genealogy.

222 Jeremiah is assumed to have married his first wife, unknown about 1719 before he was of age and to have settled on the 112 acre tract of land in Faulkner's Patent (Fox Meadow in Scarsdale), which his father had purchased from Caleb Heathcote in 1717. The land was deeded to Jeremiah in January 1721/22 by his father, Jeremiah (son of Henry 1.)

In 1723 Jeremiah Fowler, Jr., recorded his earmark of his cattle and was appointed assessor for Scarsdale. In the same year his father died and devised him only an acre of salt meadow "at a place called "Ye Pines", in Eastchester which he had purchased from Jacob Laswrence.

By December 7, 1728, Jeremiah Fowler had moved to Eastchester when with his oldest brother, Lieut. Joseph Fowler, one of the executors of their deceased father's estate, he sold the farm in Fox Meadow to his cousin William Fowler (son of William Fowler 2, son of Henry l.) taking a note of hand, and ten days later purchased from Samuel Thorn and Esther his wife, a homestead in Westchester.

Phebe Fowler
226 Reuben Fowler was probably born about 1722 at Fox Meadow in Scarsdale, the year his father received a deed to the land on which he was then living, from his father, Jeremiah Fowler of Eastchester. Reuben Fowler is wrongly given in "The Fowlers of America" as son of Jeremiah, son of William Fowler of Flushing, who settled in Harrisons Purchase in Rye, and died at Hempstead Harbor, although that Jeremiah Fowler made no mention of a son Reuben in his will of 1766.

Fox Meadow in Scarsdale where Reuben Fowler was born, was settled by Eastchester families, and extended along the Bronx River north from the Eastchester line to White Plains. Reuben Fowler's father owned the land there adjoining the land of Samuel Drake and his wife, Mary Fowler, daughter of Henry Fowler of Eastchester. Mary (Fowler) Drake was first cousin to Reuben Fowler's father.

Reuben, as the oldest son of Jeremiah Fowler who died intestate at Westchester, was probably heir to most of his father's property. In 1748 and in 1751 Reuben Fowler served as juror in the Westchester Court of Common Pleas, and in 1753 he witnessed the will of Jonothan Ferris of Throg's Neck in Westchester. In 1756 Reuben Fowler of Westchester, purchased land on Throg's Neck from John Mollineaux and Elizabeth his wife, of the same place. At that time Reuben was a cordwainer. It has not been determined when Reuben Fowler moved to Cortlandt Manor.

In 1765 Reuben Fowler of Cortlandt Manor, mortgaged to Stephen Johnson of Perth Amboy, NJ, farm number 14 in North Lot number one, on the north side of the road leading from Crompond Meeting house to Cornelius Mandeville's at Peekskill. It was the farm Reuben Fowler had purchased from James Lent, and was bounded by land of John Lee, Farm No. 13, land which Jeremiah Drake had purchased from James Lent, and land of Benjamin Barton.

Reuben Fowler died at Cortlandt Manor soon after making his will in 1777. He was then "very sick."
According to his will Reuben Fowler devised to his wife Jane, one thirteenth of his estate and the use of all until their youngest child came of age; one thirteenth each to sons, Stephen (less twenty pounds already received), Jeremiah, Reuben, James and John; the same to daughters, Abigail, Anne, Mary and Phoebe (each less twenty pounds already received), and Sarah, Jane and Dorothy. The executors were his wife and son, Reuben. Witnesses, Jeremiah Drake, John Ferris and Loue Creesy Hughson.

Because Reuben's wife had the use of the estate until their youngest child came of age, it appears it was not admitted to probate until that time. or after May 25, 1785. The two Reubens, father and son, have also been confused because the estate was not settled until 1785, and the older Reuben Fowler had been given the Revolutionary service of his son, Reuben. Reuben Fowler, the father, was too old to have done active service, the required ages being 16 - 50.

242 From the Mss. marriage records of the Tappan Church (NYG&B.Soc. Lib) we find the following item (p-99).
"June 1, 1789 Peter Willse and Famiche Gisnaer, both of Tappan were married." This shows that a Famiche Gesnaer married a Peter Willse as stated in the Gesner Genealogy, but it does not establish her parentage. It seems queer that in a family where the baptisms of 9 children are duly and chronologically registered that the baptism of the 10th should not likewise be recorded. It is noted that her date of birth is given in Gesner Genealogy, and while this date of birth as there given harmonizes with the marriage date, yet I am not convinced that this Famiche Gesner was the daughter of John (2), son of Hendrick Gesner, and give this record soley on the authority of the Gesner Genealogy."
