…and here ends my line of Dates in CT. I suppose next I should trace Ludowick, James, Hiram and Fred from II above.
From CT State Library records:
1806 Lyme land records record David Beebe's deed to his daughter Deborah Beebe, who became the wife of Thomas Date and was the origen of all the sons named David Beebe Date.
1810 Census has Thomas Date living in Lyme at age 45 presumably with his wife (2 person household.) Simple arithmetic puts his birth around 1765.
1816 Lyme Vital Records record Thomas’ death on 20 Feb. 1816.
1846 Lyme Vital Records record marriage of David B Date to Mary Hughes 2d Jan 13.
1850 Census has David B. Date living in Lyme at age 39 with his wife and children (4 person household.) Census lists Ellen A. (age 1) David B Jr. (age 3) and Mary (age 25) as the household.
1861 Lyme court documents list Date minor children as David B, Ellen A, Frederick W, and Hiram H in a proceeding.
1873 Franklin First Congregational Church records memorialize David B Date marrying Emily E Hyde on 1 Jan., and further records them at various times as “in profession” for the church.
CT Military Records show David B Date in Co. K, 5th CT in the Civil War.
I can find nothing for Date before Thomas, thought it was prossibly Deitz or something similar before him.
I hope this is of use to someone.
