Jonathan Stout, s/o Richard and Penelope, b 1660 at Gravesend, Long Island, NY, d 24 Nov 1722 in Monmouth Co, NJ.
Noted events in his life were:
1. Story. 354 Jonathan Stout was a militia captain. He lived near the Baptist Meeting House at Hopewell, NJ. In 1681, he was president of the county court. In 1688, he received a patent for 30 acres of land from his father at Middletown and Conesconk. He was a slave holder. He was one of the first settlers of Old Hopewell and the first permanent white settler in the northeast part of Hopewell Township, locating on the hill one mile north of Stoutsburg.
2. Story, 1706, Hopewell, Hunterdon County, New Jersey, United States. 360 One of the three families, who first settled in the tract, now called Hopewell, was that of Jonathan Stout, who arrived here from Middleton, about 1706. The place then was a wilderness and full of Indians. Mr. Stout?s wife was Ann Bullen, by whom he had nine children, namely Joseph, Benjamin, Zebulon, Jonathan, David, Samuel, Sarah, Hannah, and Ann. Six of these children are said to have gone to Pennsylvania for baptism. Thus it appears, that Mr. Stout?s family, including the father and mother, furnished eight members for the church.
3. Will, 24 Nov 1722, Hopewell, Hunterdon County, New Jersey, United States. 3792 The will of Jonathan Stout, dated 24 Nov 1722, describes him as of Hopewell, Hunterdon county, NJ. No wife is mentioned. The will was proved 25 March 1723, Lib 2, p219.
4. Probate, 25 Mar 1723, New Jersey, United States. 3792 The will of Jonathan Stout, dated 24 Nov 1722, was proved 25 March 1723, Lib 2, p219.
5. Story. 357 I shall now introduce Jonathan Stout, the third son of Richard the first. He married a woman of the name of Bullen, and moved to Hopewell, in Hunterdon County, by whom he had six sons and three daughters, viz: Joseph, born in the year 1686; Jonathan, born in 1701; Zebulon, born 1699; Benjamin, born 1696; Samuel, born 1709; David, born 1706; and Sarah, Hannah and Anne.
The eldest son, Joseph, married a woman of the name of Ruth Greenland, by whom he had four sons and four daughters, viz: James, John, Joseph, Jonathan, Mary, Anna, Rachel and Ruth. James married a woman in Maryland who possessed an Honorary title, by whom he had one son named St. Lege-Cod Stout.
John married Catherine Stout, the daughter of Richard the second whose family I have already described. Joseph married a woman of the name of Rebecca Grover, by whom he had children, viz: Grover, Saftz, Joseph, and one daughter name Esther, who married Peter Sortor. Grover married a daughter of James Mitchell. Saftz died single. Joseph married a daughter of George Garrison and raised a large
family. Jonathan married Elizabeth Hunt, a daughter of Wilson Hunt, by whom he had three sons and one daughter, viz: Joseph, Wilson, Daniel and Ruth. I now introduce the daughters of said Joseph, beginning with Mary who married Harmon Rosenkrance, by whom she had three sons and four daughters, viz: Alexander, Joseph, John, Catherine, Anne, Mary and Rachel. Alexander married and has two sons living named Alexander and William. Joseph was a soldier in the Revolutionary war and I have been told that he died there. John married Allaire Kyse (Allice Kise, third daughter of Joseph) and went to Kentucky. Catherine married Samuel Pethro and Annie married John Hudnut and had a number of children. Mary married John Dildine and Rachel married John Stout,
and had a number of children. Anne married a man by the name of Worth, and raised a family of whom I have but little knowledge. Rachel married a Stockton by whom she had two sons, Joseph and Richard, and after the death of her first husband she married a man by the name of Reddal, by whom she had one daughter - Anne. Ruth married a Leonard by whom she had children but I can give no particular account of their number or names.
I now close this history of Joseph's family and introduce his brother Jonathan, who married a woman of the name of Mary Lee, by whom he had four sons and two daughters, viz: Zebulon, Samuel, Jonathan, David, and Anne (Anna) and Sarah. Zebulon I believe died single. Samuel married and raised a large family of sons and daughters. Jonathan married a woman by the name of Swym and raised a family. David married Sarah Park, and raised a large family. He moved, when
his family was young, to the Western Country by reason where, I can neither tell their names, nor number. The two sisters, Anne and Sarah, married Andrew Stout, by whom they had a number of children, Sarah, David, Jonathan and Ruth, who all have families. The said Sarah was first married to Moses Morgan, by whom she had a number of children.
I shall now introduce Zebulon, a brother to Joseph (and Jonathan), of whose family I have just given an account. Zebulon married a woman whose name was Charity Barrows (Burrows), by whom he had two sons and seven daughters, viz: John, Zebulon, Anne, Hannah, Rachel, Mary, Charity, Sarah and one died single whose name is not within my memory. John married Mabel Saxton (Sexton), by whom he had two sons and five daughters, viz: Zephaniah, Amos, Elizabeth, Mabel, Kesiah, Rachel, Charity. Zepheniah married Rhoda Stout, by whom he had two sons, the eldest named Ebenezer, who studied law, and is yet living. The other son died young. Amos married a Morgan and moved to the Lake country, and of his family I know but little. Elizabeth married Nathaniel Hart, and had a number of children. Mabel married James Campbell, by whom she had a number of children. Kesiah married Lewis Gordon. Rachel married Jonathan Stout and they had by him a number of children. Charity married John Park, and had by him a number of children. Zebulon married Sarah Stout, by whom he had no children. After her death he married the widow Sutphen, whose maiden name was Demott, by whom he had a son, whose name is Zebulon. I now introduce the daughter of the said Zebulon the eldest, beginning the Anne, who was married to Ichabod Lugn (Leigh), by whom she had sons, Samuel, Joseph, Elijah, Daniel, Zebulon, John, Isaac, and daughters, Naomi, Elizabeth and Annie. Hannah married John Brinson, and had a number of children. Rachel married Stephen Bartow (Barton), and had sons. Andrew, Zebulon, John and David, no daughters. Mary married a man by the name of Carbine. Charity married Nathaniel Stout, by whom she had three children, viz: Lavana, Elijah (David) and Charity. Sarah married Abram Skillman who died a few months after, and left no children. Charity the wife of Nathaniel Stout, died about the same time, and left him t liberty to marry his first wife's sister Sarah, which he did, in a few months after, and by whom he had a number of children.
I shall now introduce Benjamin, a brother of Zebulon, whose family I have last delineated. Benjamin was born in the year 1696, and married Hannah Bonham by whom he had six sons and three daughters, viz: Jonathan, Hezekiah, Benjamin, Nathaniel, Ezekiel, Hosea and Mary, Hannah and Sarah. Jonathan married a woman by the name of Jewell, and raised a large family of children and lived till he was a hundred years old. Hezekiah married a widow Smith, they had no children, and after her death he married a widow Sortor, with whom he lived until he was between ninety and a hundred years old, and died without issue. Benjamin married Rebecca Dulhangal, by whom he had a large family of children, and after her death he married Martha Skyhauk and had another large family of children. Nathaniel married Charity Furman, by whom he had one child, a daughter, whose name was Rhoda. She married Zephaniah Stout, and had issue. After his death she married Burges Allison, by whom she had children. Ezekiel married a Drake by whom he had a large family of children. Hesea went into the back parts of Virginia a single man, where he married and raised a large family of children, as I have been informed. Mary married William Heabron, and had by him two sons and one daughter, viz; John, William and Hannah. Hannah married David Ollivent, and raised a family of children. Sarah married Andrew Bray and died without issue.
I shall next take up Samuel brother to Benjamin, whose family I have last detailed. He was born in the year 1709, and married the widow of James Stout, (who had seven children by her first husband, and whose maiden name was Catherine Simson,) by whom he had one son, whose name was Samuel, he was born in the month of February in the year 1732. He was a man of high respectability, he served in the Legislature, and was a Justice of the peace a number of years. He married Anne Vandyke, by whom he had seven sons, and three daughters, viz: Abraham, Samuel, John, Jonathan, Ira, Andrew, Jacob and Catherine, Anne and Sarah. Before I proceed further, I will state that Samuel the grandfather of these ten last mentioned children, lost his first wife, and married a widow Limbrook (Tinbrook), by whom he had two sons Jonathan and Andrew. The youngest died single, and Jonathan married Sarah Phillips, and raised a large family of sons and daughters. I now resume the history of the ten (eleven) children of the second Samuel. Abraham married Jane Pettitt, and by her had a
number of children. He served, with great reputation as an officer, throughout the whole of the Revolutionary war. His brother is next in order; he married Elinor Crinen (Helen Crueer or Cruser) by whom he had but one child, whose name was Abraham, and is a man of good distinguishing talent, and is now a member of the Legislature of this State, and has been for a number of years. He married Anne Hagemar, by whom he had two children, viz: Elinor and Samuel Holmes. I now take up John, who married Rachel Rosenkrance by whom he had
four sons and two daughters, viz: Washington, Montgomery, Samuel, Hezekiah, and Mary and Catherine. Washington married Hannah Stout, Montgomery to a Wyckoff, Samuel married Mary Labaw, Hezekiah is yet single. Mary married Phillip Servis, and Catherine married William Little. Jonathan married Rachel Stout. Ira married Sarah Burrows. Andrew married Sarah Stout. Jacob married Anne Burtis. Catherine married Peter Smith, a Baptist minister. Anne married Benjamin Stout, and Sarah married John Wyckoff.
I shall next take David, who I thought was the youngest son of Jonathan, but have discovered my mistake, and find that he was next to the youngest, which was Samuel, whose family I have last delineated. David was born in the year 1706, and as I do not mean to draw character, I shall content myself with saying, that as far as his acquaintance extended, he was reputed an honest man and a Christian, which I believe to be the two highest traits that human nature is susceptible of. He was married in early life to Elizabeth Larrison, by whom he had four sons and five daughters, viz: Jonathan, Andrew, James, David, Elizabeth, Anne, Mary, Sarah and Hannah. The above said Jonathan married Rachel Burrows, by whom he had a number of children, of which I am only able to name three sons, which were David, Moses and Job. David married Any Stout, daughter of Nehimiah Stout, who died some time after without issue. He then
married his first wife's sister Rachel, by whom he had a number of children. But I am acquainted with the name of only two sons, viz: Jonathan and Nathan, who are promising, well-informed young men. Job married a daughter of Abner Howell, and has a number of children, but as they live in the State of Ohio, I am not able to tell their names or number. I shall now take Andrew Stout, brother to that Jonathan, whose family I have last detailed. He married alternately two of Jonathan Stout's daughters, who were his own cousins, and whose history I have given under the head of Jonathan Stout's family. I now take up James, the third brother who married Catherine Stout, daughter of John Stout, by whom he had three sons and four daughters - Jesse, Amose, Charles, Rachel, Elizabeth, Catherine and Anne. Jesse married Abigail Lott, daughter of Phelix Lott, by whom he had five sons and I think seven daughters. Amos married Catherine Drake, the daughter of William Drake, by whom he has a number of children,
but as he moved to the Lake Country soon after he was married, I can neither tell the names or number of his children. Charles married Arlissa Saxton (Sexton), a daughter of Jared Saxton, by whom he had a number of children. Rachel married John Manners, by whom she had two sons, the eldest named James Stout, the other John. Elizabeth married David Stout, and after his death, to John Hoagland, but has no children. Catherine married James Bryant, and has a number of children, but as they moved soon after to the Lake Country, I am not able to tell their names or number. Anne married Philip Servis, by whom she had one son named James. I now take up David, the fourth brother; he married Charity Burroughs, by whom he had two daughters, who were named Mary and Elizabeth. Mary married James Saxton, by whom he had two daughters, who were named Mary and Elizabeth. Mary married Jared Saxton, by whom she had a number of children. Elizabeth married Nathaniel Burroughs, by whom she had a number of children. I shall now introduce the sisters of the last detailed brothers. Beginning with Elizabeth the eldest, who married Freegift Stout, her second
cousin, by whom she had a number of sons and daughters. The next sister was Anne, who married Timothy Merritt (Merrill), by whom she had four sons and one daughter. The third daughter was Mary, who married John Chamberlain, the son of Lewis, by whom she had a great number of children. The fourth was Sarah, who married Moses Randolph, by whom she had a number of children. The fifth was Hannah, who married James Wyckoff, by whom she had a great
number of children.
I shall now introduce the daughters of Jonathan Stout, the son of Richard the First. The eldest daughter was Sarah, who was born in the year 1689, and married Andrew Smith, by whom she had a number of sons and one daughter, viz: Jonathan, Andrew, George, Charles, Timothy and Anne. Jonathan married a Hixon, by whom he had a large family of children. One of his sons was a judge of the Court of Hunterdon, a number of years, which office he served with reputation and honor. His name was John. Andrew married a Mershon, by whom
he had a number of children. George married and had a family, but I know nothing about the family he married into. Charles married a daughter of Thomas * -- (Hunt), and had a son named Jonathan. Timothy married a Lott and had a family of children. His son George now lives on the farm where his father died. Anne married John Titus, by whom she had a number of daughters, and but one son whose name was Andrew, who died single with the small pox.
I shall now introduce the second daughter of Jonathan Stout. She was born in the year 1694, and was married to Jediah Higgins, and her name was Hannah. She had sons by Higgins - Joseph, Jonathan, Joshua and James; and daughters, Mary, Rachel, and I think some others, whose names I do not remember.
I now introduce Jonathan Stout's third daughter, whose name was Anne. She was born in the year 1704. She was married to Nehimiah Bonham, by whom she had but one child, whose name was Anne. She was married to Benjamin Reeder, by whom she had three sons and three daughters, viz: Nehimiah, Jacob, Joseph, Rachel, Mary and Anne. This Anne was an extraordinary child, after being born seventeen years or thereabouts after it was supposed her mother had quit bearing, and was near sixty years old. Her eldest son Nehimiah married Phebe Reeder, daughter of Jacob Reeder, his own cousin, by whom he had one child, being a daughter, whose name was Elizabeth. She was married to Thomas Drake, by whom she had children. Her eldest son was named Jacob and was married to Phebe, daughter of Ira Stout. I now introduce Jacob Reeder, brother to the above said Nehimiah, and I can only say he moved to the Lake Country, and as I have been informed, married and had a family of children. And now comes in Joseph Reeder, brother to the said Jacob. He was a man of uncommon strength and action of body, but he had also that which was far superior; and that was, he was a man of great piety, a retentive memory and uncommon knowledge of the Scriptures. He married a widow Stinson in Sussex county, and had some children, but I know neither their names or number. Rachel Reeder, sister to the above said Joseph, I think, was never married. Mary, her sister, was married to Samuel Hunt son of John Hunt, and has a family of children. Anne, the youngest sister, of whom it may be said, she was born out of her time, is still single.
Jonathan married Anna BOLLEN, daughter of James* BULLEN and Anne* VANQUELLIN, on 27 Aug 1685.354
