Isaac was the older brother of one of my ancestors, perhaps a great-great-great grandfather - Caleb Tichenor.
Issac was born in Newark, NJ on January 13, 1783. Caleb (also called Caleb, Jr. on some documents) was born in 1794 or 1796.Their parents were Walter Tichenor andHannah Howell (or Hannah Howell Denman, according to the Tichenor Family in America book). One of my great aunts insistted that Hannah's maiden name was Cole, and that she was the daughter of a Nathaniel and Abigail Cole.They were married in Springfield, NJ, but seem to have lived much of their adult lives in Newark, where both boys were born.
Walter was a private in the Essex County, NJ militia, Captain Lyon's Company, during the Revolutionary War.
Isaac Tichenor and Mary (or Sarah Mary) Megee (sometimes spelled McGee) were married in January 1801 in Elizabeth, NJ.Some records say that Mary was born in 1775 in Elizbeth, NJ. I believe that her gravestone or another Ithaca/Dryden area record says that she was born on December 2, 1782 in Essex County, NJ. Her father was Joseph Megee, who was born in 1739. I think that her mother was Rodah Horton, who was born in Springfield in 1740.Joseph and Rodah were married in 1763 in Elizabeth, NJ.
Many of the families in the Dryden area at that time seem to have moved to the frontier area of NYS after leaving the more crowded land in the Newark/Springfield area.
By 1820, both of Walter's sons, Isaac and Caleb, are listed in the US Census as living in Dryden, NY.Issac was already married, but Caleb married Clarissa Cooper, the daughter of Joseph Cooper and Ruth Smith Cooper.Joseph was a veteran of the War of 1812. Clarissa was born in 1814 in Scipio, NY.This must have been a town near Dryden, NY - just outside of Ithaca.
Caleb and Clarissa eventually had three children, a son named Isaac and two daughters, Harriet Tichenor Wicks and Jennifer Tichenor Graham.Harriet Tichenor Wicks was my great-great grandmother.She remembered Mary Megee very well and with much fondness, according to my grandmother.Mary died on August 2, 1844 in Tompkins County, NY.Joseph Addison Tichenor was one of their children.
I'm sorry that I don't know more.I recently picked up the family history project from my mother, who is not able to spend the time on this any longer because my father is in poor health.
I believe that the family record keeping might have been better among Isaac's children, but I don't know.
Having just adopted this project, I would appreciate any information you have, even scanned-in photos or tintypes.
