Daniel Dodge & Elizabeth Sternberg LIncoln & Oxford Counties Ontario
Frequently I respond to questions on Mailing Lists. I often spend a few hours researching for subscriber's ancestors. I thought it might be helpful to other descendants and researchers to see what I've found, so am posting bits of the original question, and my research into the family genealogy on Olive Tree Genealogy.
QUESTION ASKED ON MAILING LIST JANUARY 2007
Still looking for the parents of Daniel Dodge, born probably around 1775 He married Elizabeth Sternberg who was from the Mohawk Valley.The family emigrated to Ontario, Canada around 1800 and settled first in Lincoln county and then Oxford county. Children's names were Sarah, Adam. Jesse (male), Joseph, Lydia, Mary, Jane, Permilia. Adam and probably Sarah were born in the US.
MY ANSWERHave you looked carefully at the Caughnawaga Montgomery County New Yorkarea? There is a Daniel Dodge found there in the 1790 census
1st No.-Free white males over 16 years
2nd No.-Free white males under 16 years
3rd No.-Free white females
4th No.-All other free persons
I found your Daniel's wife (Elizabeth Sternberg) in theChurch records of Caughnawaga New York. Her baptism is found asElizabeth born 16 Oct 1772, baptised 2 Nov. 1772 to AdamSternberger and Maragriet Printup.
Her parents' marriage is also found in 1768 in the Recordsof the reformed Dutch Church of Stone Arabia :
Sternberger, Adam (son of Adam) Sternberger married Anna MargrethBrentop [sic] (no date but after 10 April 1768)
There are several DODGE individuals found in CaughnawagaChurch records:
Daniel Dodge & Mary Sikkels had the following children baptthere:
Daniel Dodge born 9 May 1782 bpt 19 July 1782. (Is there anychance this could be your Daniel, born 10 years later thanyou thought?)
Johnstown is another nearby area where DODGE families lived- in fact a Daniel Dodge died and is buried in Johnstown. Hedied 25 Feb 1805, age 60.
Many of these New York families ended up as Loyalists in UpperCanada (Ontario). Did you check Loyalist land petitions orLoyalist lists for Daniel?
