Maltby Genealogy

American Lineage

Rev. Jonathan (4) Maltby wrote: "Ann was here" (New Haven) "one time in Miss Mary Bradley's school, and was living in 1848." (This would make her birth about 1828-1830).

In 1853. "Anna Eliza Maltby--only daughter of S. E. Maltby of Geddes, was married May 5, 1853, in Geddes, to Alonzo C. Yates, of Syracuse."

From this we learn the 2nd dau. was dead by 1853, and possibly died unmarried.

Stephen Elutherous evidently married again, as we find: "1857. Stephen E. Maltby mar. Sarah Cudderbeck, he of Syracuse, mar. June 2, 1857, in Skencateles."

"1857. Stephen E. Maltbie of Syracuse, died Aug. 3, 1876 ae. 80."

"1863. Mrs. Sarah Maltby died Sept. 5, 1863, in 50th year, at the residence of her son-in-law, Richard Paine, Jr., in Syracuse, form- erly of Skencatelis."

"1863 Will of Sarah C. Maltby of Syracuse, N.Y. Dated June 14, 1862. Proved Oct. 8, 1863." She gives all her property to her son Seth Cuddebeck and her daughter Mrs. Emily Paine, one half to each. Israel S. Spencer, Exex. Evidently there were no children by this marriage.

Mrs. Annie C. Maltbie of Syracuse, N.Y., wrote: "There was a family here" (Syracuse) "long ago, whose accquaintance I wish we had cultivated then--Seth E. Maltby. They were excellent people, had a daughter Annie Maltby, an elegant woman, who married a rich batchelor named Yates and had two daughters."

Note. Mrs. Maltbie should have written Stephen, not Seth. From my Grandmother Maltby's album I have a photograph of these two Yates daughters.

     Children of Stephen Elutherous Maltby and Ann Lucas:
VI.1005.  Ann Eliza Maltby, b. prob. about 1828-30.
VI.1006.  Daughter, dead by 1853.  Doubt she ever married.

V.363. Julia Ann Maltby, born in 1810 (Stephen 4, Benj.3, Dan.2,Wm.1).

"Auntie Bidwell" was my great-great aunt. She was still living in New Haven, at the home of her son, when I was about seven years old. I recall sitting over an hour in the carriage waiting for my father and mother who had gone to see her when she was dying.

The compiler has her Daguerrotype picture. Her hair, quite dark, is parted in the middle, combed smoothly down over the ears; eyebrows arched, face oval. From the back of the hair, at either side is a fine lace ribbon, falling over the shoulders. It is a strong face. A satin faced jacket seems to be worn over the gown, which is opened over a white vestee.

I also have a photograph of her. My Grandmother Maltby laughed very seldom but I have seen her laugh until the tears rolled down her checks when she looked at this picture of "Julia." It was the day of hoop-skirts, but what "Julia" did not realize was that even hoop skirts did not conceal the fact that a child was soon to be born. I gather "Julia was exceedingly vexed" when she saw the photo- graph: Briefly, from the waist down, the result is startlingly enormous. She is wearing an elaborate "bonnet" tied under the chin with wide white (?) satin ribbon, small bow but the ends must be
