Here's hoping someone still checks this thread from time to time.
I am descended from Sally Tourtellotte and Joshua Bixby's dau Mary (1795-1864) who married Isaac Thornton (1796-1863) in New York and moved to Wisconsin in 1851. Their dau Anna Eliza was my gg-grandmother, who provided some of the information for the book "A Genealogy of the Descendants of Joseph Bixby" published in 1914. In this book, the chapter on Sally and Joshua indicates that Sally was the daughter of Israel and ____ (Jacobs) Tourtellotte, and that Israel was the son of Abraham Tourtellotte of Rhode Island.
I found a chapter on the Jacobs family in another book, "Colonial Families of the United States" (published in 1917), that Mercy Jacobs (b 1760), dau of John Jacobs and Sarah Plank, married Israel Tourtellot, but there is no listing of any of their children.
Just wondering if anyone has any "official" list of the names of Israel & Mercy's children. I've found the Bixby book to be amazingly well-documented for my more recent generations, but if anyone knows anything or would like to connect, I'd love to chat.
