I perused the complete 1790 Federal Census for Dutchess County, N.Y. This included all the townships. Each page was closely examined for any Satterlee-ly-ley surnames or variations.
Two families were identified:
#1) William Satterlee found in Fishkill, Dutchess, N.Y. One male over 16, presumably William. Three females in residence. Presumably includes William's wife. Perhaps two female children.
This William Satterlee likely the grandson or great-grandson of William II Satterly b 1660 d 1722 in Setauket, Brookhaven, Suffolk, N.Y. William can be found in Goldie Satterlee's Vol. IV of her book on Satterlee-ly-ley & Allied Families Genealogies.
#2) Richard Satterlee found in Phillipstown, Dutchess County, N.Y. Two males over age 16, and one the HOH, presumably Richard. One female in residence.
In 1812, Phillipstown became part of Putnam, County, N.Y.
According to old Dutchess/Putnam County cemetery records, this Richard Satterlee was born in 1705 in "Long Island" and died in Dutchess/Putnam County in 1798 at age 93!!
If the record is accurate, this man was the second son of William II Satterly who was the son of William The Immigrant Satterlee. This Richard b 1705 is named in the Will of William II Satterly d 1722 which was proved 1729.
According to historical records and the research of Goldie Satterlee, most of William II Satterly's children except the eldest, Elnathan, moved to the Orange County, N. Y. area around 1760.
I believe that both William Satterlee and his older relative Richard Satterlee moved to Dutchess County before part of it became Putnam County.
Furthermore, I beieve that this Richard Satterlee b 1705 d 1798, is the father of several "dis-connected" Satterly-lee lines. There are two brothers, James Satterlee-ly b abt 1770 d 1820 and Edward Satterlee-ly b abt 1776 d 1831 living quite close to each other in the 1800 Census of Phillipstown, Dutchess, N.Y. and I believe that they are related, perhaps sons or grandsons of Richard Satterlee b 1705 d 1798.
The above mentioned James Satterlee had a son named Richard Satterlee b 1801 d 1869 in Berlin, Delaware, Ohio.
Since it was quite common for a man to name his first son after HIS father, I believe that the father of James Satterlee-ly b 1770 was a Richard Satterlee, perhaps the Richard Satterlee named in the 1790 Census.
So far, I do not yet have a proven link of Richard Satterlee b 1705 and James Satterlee b 1770 and Edward Satterlee b 1776.
However, the circumstantial evidence is mounting.
I have a James and Edward Satterlee family tree posted on Ancestry.com This tree has a lot of information on these two men.
