Abraham and Maria (Schoeffer) NOXON
When Abraham Noxon and his wife, Maria (always called Maritje), bought a
40 acre farm in Wayne township Ashtabula Co., Oh. in 1835 from Lynds Jones.
Abraham was born in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. and married Maria in Albany.Both
were born around the time of the Revolutionary War.He was the son of Batholomew and Ann (Losee) Noxon. Schoharie County, N.Y.They
first lived in a log cabin beside a spring in the woods on Hayes Road on lots
93 and 94.
All of their ten children were born in N.Y.John, Richard and
Bartholomew stayed in N.Y.Peter, his wife, Eliza (Gillette), and family
lived in Jefferson Ashtabula Co., Oh. for a time and later moved to Buffalo.Pascoe and his
large family lived in Wayne Twp., Ashtabula Co., Oh. a few years and them "emigrated to N.Y.His wife, Sarah, is buried in Monroe cemetery.Their
daughter, Helen, married Robert Wilcox Jones and their two children were Lynds
Levant and Maizie.Abraham's youngest son, Abram, lived in the Wayne-Andover area of Ashtabula Co., Oh.
area.His children were Miriam McDonald, Alice, Helen Bates and Birdsall.
Anna, born in Albany, N.Y., in 1795 and husband Peter Shufelt, lived on
lot 34.Their children were Noxon, Alonzo, Angelica and Kate Bailey.Evalina
married Alonzo Platt and had two sons, Noxon and Joseph, who lived in
Cleveland.Almira married first Alonzo Wilder, then Phillip Hanson, the local
tailor, and had two sons, Claudius and Thaddeus Hanson.
The other daughter, Christine, was born probably in
1809.Upon the death of her father, 12 September, 1842, she bought the farm
from his estate and made a home there for her mother until Maritje died 11
December, 1863, age 86.
My interest is mainly in Alonzo Platt who m. Evaline Noxon before 1840 probably in Ashtabula Co., Oh. From there they show up in 1840 Wayne Twp. Ashtabula Co. Oh.

1870 Noxon is living in Cleveland occupation Railroad Engineer withwife Flora and son Clauda. 1880 Noxon still in Cleveland with wife Flora and son Claude. Joseph occupation Machinist, also in Cleveland in 1880 with wife Mary Anna, son Wilber and daughter Ada. 1880 Alonzo occupation janitor of High School. and Evaline in Kent Portage Co.
Niether Alonzo or Noxon found after 1880 while Joseph and wife Marianna are found thru the 1920 census living with daughter daughter Ada and son in law Bowen Lyman.
In the 1930 census only Ada Lyman d/o Joseph is found.
Looking for the parents of Alonzo Platt. I suspect he may be the son of Ebenezer and Abigail Trubee Platt of Richmond Twp., Ashtabula Co., Oh. but I have no proof.
Does anyone have any info on this line.
