E A Doty cites circumstantial evidence when the lists prob. children for Jacob and wife of: Peter, William, Joseph, John.With the brothers (Jacob was next younger brother of Joseph) being in Oyster Bay, confusion may happen, as to who belonged to who.EAD states that Joseph was son of Joseph. Frank J. Doherty Sr. in his vol 4 of the Settlers of Beekman Patent (Dutchess Co. NY) shows Jacob to be in Dutchess Co. by Feb 1745 Joseph 4m. Lucretia Mar 1743 in Dutchess Co.Lucretia prob. b. about 1725 and Joseph a. 1715.Joseph 3 made his will in 1716 and left estate to wife Sarah, son Joseph, daus. Sarah & Elizabeth.Son Isaac prob. died young.Jospeh signed for his share in 1729, therefore was b. a. 1708 (age 21 in 29) Frank has other info that seems to supply further evidence of Joseph being Jacob's son. Frank's position seems more logical to me. My question, would 20 year old Lucretia have been more likely to marry a man of 27/28 or one of 35.
