Hi - my husband's family includes a parallel to yours:our Rachel Oysterbanks was sister to your Elizabeth, and our James Batterson (Jr.) was a brother to your George!Here's what I have, for better or worse: _____
James Batterson Jr. b. ~ 1728 Fairfield Co, Connecticut m. 16 May 1754 Westport, CN d. in Unadilla, NY
his father: James Batterson b. ~ 1682 in Boston MA or in Gilford England m. 19 Dec. 1707 in Boston d. ~ 1730 occupation:clockmaker son of Richard Battison, whose other son was named Anthony
his mother: Mary Coverly b. ~ 1686 Connecticut? _____
Rachel Oysterbanks b. ~1734 Westport CN
her father: Johann Jacob Heisterbach (d. 23 July 1763 Westport CN) only child of of Johann Niclaus Heisterbach (26 Apr. 1657 Germany to abt. 1710 in NY) and Gertraut Gladbach (bef. 1661 - abt. 1709 or 1710) grandson of Melchior and Catharina Heisterbach
her mother: Patience Churchill (~1711 to 29 Nov. 1760 Westport) dau. of Robert Churchill (~1676 Manhattan NY - d. in Fairfield CN, will dated 3 Nov. 1733) and Rebecca Thomas (b. 20 Sept. 1680 New Haven CN) The family (or at least Rebecca and Patience) lived in Germany for awhile, where Patience must have met Johann Jacob.I recently came across another wife for Robert, but the dates don't jive (I figure most women can't give birth under the age of five...) and have come to the conclusion there may have been a divorce or some other event that triggered the move to Germany.
I've got names for a few more generations back on this side, and a little more detail if you'd like.I'd love to share what I have and see if we can fill in some blanks - please feel free to e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.Thanks!
