Please note that the given names of children listed here are typical of given names in the families descended from the "Emigrant" William (1) Maltbie. It is believed that Jonathan (4) Maltbie (1751) born at Branford, Conn., married a Lucy Culver, b. 1754 at Branford or Wallingford. We do not know of a marriage record for either of these persons, but their births are of unquestioned record. It is to be observed that the known daughter of the Jonathan found at Hebron- town (and Camillus), N. Y. was named Lucy. Also that her brother and wife, Jacob and Sarah (Miner) Maltby, named their daughter LUCY. It seems probable that in Jonathan of Camillus, N. Y., we have the Jonathan Maltbie whom Rev. Jonathan (4) Maltbie of New Haven wrote that "He married a Culver and went to Lenox, Mass.". See Appendix II in this compilation for a copy made from the hand-written MS. of Rev. Jonathan (4), the original of which the compiler owns.
Query. Did Jonathan Maltby have a son Samuel living when he moved to Camillus? Miss Lesley E. Voorhees of Baldwinsville, N.Y., sent this item: Lot 79, Book 123, p. 483, Onondaga Co., N.Y. Rec- ords 1856: "William Maltby bought land from S. B. Rowe and Ano in Camillus, New York." The compiler has from the New York Evangelist, Feb. 6, 1868, "Obituary, Maltby at the residence of her brother, J. H. Rowe, in Hillsdale, Michigan, Jan. 15, 1868, Mrs. Laura in her 75th year. Born in Connecticut, 1790, she went at the age of ten to central New York. At the age of 17 she married Samuel Maltby. He died in four years. Her first child was a son." Census reports of 1790 and 1800 do not preclude a son other than the known sons. This Samuel died before four sons sold by deed a part of Jonathan's land in the Town of Camillus, March 18, 1825, recorded Nov. 14, 1829. Records Book QQ, page 3. (Latter item by Miss L.E.V.)
VI.1065. John Molby, b. Apr. 14, 1817 (Chester 5, Jonathan 4, Sam.3, Sam.2, Wm.1). He was born in the town of Camillus, now Van Buren. Mar. July 22, 1837, Clarissa E. Holcomb, dau. of Edmond and Sally --- Holcomb; she was b. Sept. 27, 1818, Onondaga Co., N.Y.
John Maltby (sic) was a farmer. His farm was on Lot No. 19, on the East Dead Creek road in the town of Van Buren. This was the farm next south to the Harvey Walker farm. Harvey's daughter, Erma Walker Kraft, is the present owner of the John Maltby property.
The southern end of the East Dead Creek road has been cut off and is now part of the truck route 31. This leaves the old Dead Creek road a very short one. John Molby's old farm and Harvey Walker's farm are now on Route 31, in the town of Van Buren.
