Possible Breakthrough regarding JAMES MCNETT/MCNETT/ MCNITT born Jan 1 1739.I had found that no one has yet identified the James McN*tt Family.I think I have... info found in a book "Early Families of Herkimer Co NY by Wm. V.H.Barker"reference number #10011 JAMES MACGNOT (McNutt, MacDal)
James MacGnot was a British soldier stationed in the Mohawk Valley in 1763 when son James Jr was born (out of wedlock) by ELIZABETH BARBARA WEAVER daughter of ANDREAS WEAVER. Lived in the Susquahanna River area in July 1775 (MoHawk Valley in the Revolution, pg 169).[book quote] Assumes he, rather than son was father of Children from 1786 to 1794 - Surname MACGNOT
10012 James b.SAR 30 Apr 1763 (sp Geo Dackstader & w) 10013 Christopel b.GF 15 Sep 1786 (sp Hen Meyer, Elias Bekker) 10014 Elisabeth b. GF 23 Mar 1788 (sp Jac Meyer, Elis Hockstater) 10015 Debald b GF 19 Nov 1789 (sp Theobald Bekker & Cath) 10016 Margaret b GF 02 Apr 1792 (sp Theo Dieterich & Margaret) 10017 Michael b. GF 23 Jul 1794 (sp Mic Meyer , Maria Bekker)
But I personally believe the information should be that James Sr MacGnot/MacNuttmElizabeth B Weaver and had James Jr MacGnot/McNutt. (the other children/or siblings are questionable to me).
James Jr MacGnot/MacNutt m?? Mary/Margaret ?? and had a third James MacNutt/McN*tt (b. 1793/1795 - died 1827 NY) who married one Sara/ Sally Lindsey whose daughter Lucetta/Luzetta McNitt married John (Dana) Dennyof Jefferson County New York (My line).
I am curious if anyone else has come across this MacGnot Family surname.In the book it notates MacGnot is also McNutt or MacDal.
Please contact me..... because the mention of George Dackstader (or Doxtator?) is possibly the same line that has connections with the Doxtator-Denny Oneida Indian lines.This just might solve a bit of a mystery.
