I'm interested in the family of Johannes Cortright & Susanna Kittle. He was her 2nd husband & she was the d/o Richard & Sarah Van Etten Kittle.John & Susanna had 5 children baptized in the Machackemack RDC, Orange Co., NY. Gisbert Apr 3, 1763, Samuel Feb 9, 1767, Elizabeth Aug 17, 1795 (that's no typo, she was born 3/29/1772), Susanna Aug 24, 1777 & Johannes Nov 1, 1780.
Elizabeth's baptism was obviously recorded in 1795, probably so she could marry as she did c1798 to Josephus Westbrook.Other than Elizabeth I have no birth dates for these children, & not all the baptisms were of infants so we can't always assume they were baptized the same year they were born.
Which leads me to my problem.I believe that Johannes Cortright who was bap. in 1780 is my ancestor John Courtright.According to census records his birth varies from 1775-1780.He married Mary Clark 1797 in Sussex Co., NJ.They had a daughter Sarah in 1798 & her baptism is recorded in the same church mentioned above.However her bap. was not recorded until 10/14/1807. 35 children were recorded that day, a real record & most were born 1798-1800.Among the other 35 children was Jeremiah Kittle, s/o Peter Kittle & Elenor Shimer.Little Jeremiah was born 2/3/1799.
John & Mary Clark cortright moved to the Pittsburgh, PA area by 1800. In 1818 they moved to Columbiana Co., OH, in 1830 to Jefferson Co., OH where I last find a record of them in the census for that year.They had 10 chldren.Any & all clues welcome!
