East Kill Valley Genealogy

The people buried in the East Jewett graveyard were, with a few exceptions, residents of the Town of Jewett, New York, and nearby communities during all or part of their lives. They were the pioneers and sons and daughters of pioneers who settled in the East Kill Valley in the 1790’s and early 1800’s and whose descendants are now scattered throughout the length and breadth of our land.

The larger graveyard is at the rear of the Methodist Church, on land given for the purpose by Lemuel and Lydia Woodworth in 1835; the small, older one is in a farm field about a mile west of the church.  In this record, the arrangement of names is by the position of the gravestones, the Roman numerals designating more or less regular rows of stones, the Arabic numerals the individual graves in each row.  Names in the older cemetery have the letters O. C. and one number.

Unless otherwise indicated all places mentioned are in New York State.

For some years after the Government made regular discharged soldiers pensioners, he received a pension; but after he had paid for his farm and felt himself able to feed and clothe his family without help, he signed off his pension rights because “his beloved country was in debt and in need of all her income.”  He later moved his family over the mountain to Big Hollow (now Maplecrest) so that he might bring up his children “in the wilderness, apart from Sabbath breakers with loose habits and principles.”

There is no stone but no doubt she is buried by the side of her husband, Oliver T. Fuller, as her death certificate states that burial was in East Jewett, N. Y.

Oliver T. Fuller and Lydia Woodworth were m. 31 Dec. 1819 at Hunter (Now East Jewett).  At present nothing is known of his antecedents although considerable checking has been done in Conn. as death certificates of several of his daughters indicate that he was born in Conn. One in particular pinpointed Salisbury, Conn., and a check there shows the birth of an Olive Fuller b. there 10 Oct 1786 to Eleazer and Hannah (Larribee) Fuller of the line of Amos, Benjamin and Robert Fuller of Salem, Mass.  So far, there is no proof that this is the Oliver T. Fuller who first appeared in Greene Co., N. Y. in the 1820 census, and died there in 1852.  Some time after that Lydia (Woodworth) Fuller and her minor children moved to Pittsfield, Mass. Oliver T. and Lydia  (Woodworth) Fuller had: (1) Sarah Eliza  b. 1821 (1850 census –29)  d. unm. 12 Mar. 1884 Pittsfield, Mass., and is buried at Canaan, Columbia C., N.

Dakin b. 1858 at Austerlitz d. 8 May 1877 at Pittsfield, Mass. and buried at Canaan, Columbia Co., N. Y.; (2) Lydia Ann b. 13 Feb. 1824  d. 10 Dec. 1896, Cairo, m. 14 Nov. 1844 Frederick L.

(Additional Information: From Patricia Morrow - Windham Town Historian:

Luther died in Windham on 17 Mar 1880, his death being reported in the 18 Mar 1880 issue of The Windham Journal, a day before he supposedly died.

Luther's first wife, Lucy Hosford, died in East Jewett of billious dysentery on 21 Nov 1870 at the age of 57 years, 6 months and 20 days, a year previous to the date carved on her gravestone.

Luther married Margaret Fisher at East Jewett on 24 Nov 1875. So far I've been unable to locate a death notice for Margaret, although she apparently died before the 1880 census was taken.)

This stone replaced an old broken, eroded one. John Beach was descended from Jacob, John, John, and Thomas who, with brothers Richard and John, came from England in 1643 and settled in New Haven, Conn. (See I  1).  He was a soldier of the Revolution, born 28 Apr. 1757 in Goshen, Conn., m.

In 1840 John Jr. moved to Bridgeport, Conn. Where he became a merchant, d. 1847. His children, all b. in East Jewett, were:

              Kill, Malinda, eldest dau. of David Woodworth (See O. C. 5). Their children were:

              John who m. 1886 Miss Sears of Baltimore; Cora; Sally; Daisy; Madison; Ella; and N.
             William  b. 1857, d. 1881;

(4)      Caroline F. who m. William Distin, probably son of William and Electa (See I  6), lived in Poughkeepsie;


        (5)      John P. who m. Lucinda ______, remained in Jewett until after 1850, moved to

Horatio Nelson Beach attended private school in Bridgeport for three years, succeeded to father’s business in 1847.  In 1856 moved to Brockport, where he established the “Brockport Republic,” of which he was owner and editor until his son, Lorenzo, took it over in 1871.  He was prominent in civic affairs in Brockport and in politics.  Political offices he held at various times were:  State collector of canal tools at Brockport; U. S. consul at Puerto Cabello, Venezuela; consul to Guayaquil, Ecuador, and consul general to Ecuador, where he “Resided at Quito and discharged the general duties of U. S.

            b. 29 Feb. 1840  d. 16 Jul 1899

Son of Henry and Mary (Brooks) Lockwood, probably a descendant of Timothy Lockwood who came from Dutchess Co. in 1797 and settled in upper East Kill Valley on the Treat and McLean Patent, which included what is now the Tri-Mount Boy Scout Camp property.  After five years he returned to Dutchess Co. but later came back to East Jewett, where he remained about fifteen years, then moved to Mentz, Cayuga Co.  Since an old map of about 1825 shows a James Lockwood owner of a 200 acre section of the Patent, and since Henry Lockwood and his descendants lived there until the property was sold to the Boy Scout Camp Organization, it seems likely that James was  a son of Timothy, Henry a son or possibly a brother of James.

O. C. 1   MATTHEW WINTER  b. 21 Aug. 1773  d. 3 Mar. 1844

 2      Anna (Woodworth) his wife b. 13, Aug. 1780, d. 24 Feb. 1841

 3       In Memory of Reuben, son of Matthew and Anna Winter who d. 1 Sep. 1827, aged 21 yrs. 11 mo. 11d.

 Matthew was the son of Moses (?) Winter and brother of Lydia (IV 1), Rogers (XII 1), David, and George, who in 1800 were living in the old town of Bristol in Schoharie Co. or possibly in the town of Rensselaerville just over the Albany Co. line. On 27 May 1795, he m. Anna, sister of Lemuel Woodworth, Jr., his sister Lydia’s husband, and the two couples each with their three eldest children moved into Greene Co. and settled in the East Kill Valley in 1806.

Matthew and Anna’s children were:

(1)      Daniel b. 1796 of whom nothing is known

(2)      Elizabeth  b., 1797, who m. Stephen Mead  (VII 6);

      (3)      Lydia, who m. Daniel Mead (See VII 6);

      (4)      Sally b. 1801, who m. Edward Fairchild, son of Jonathan (See O. C. 6);

      (5)      Robert  b. 1803  (X 3);

      (6)      Reuben  (O. C. 3);

(7)      Anna  b. 1808, who m. Aaron Wolcott, d. in Ohio;

      (8)      Cordelia  b. 1810, who m. Hilon Woodworth (son of Joseph of Fenner, Madison Co., 
Lemuel’s (IV 4) brother, whose first wife was the dau. of Peter Barber by whom he had
             Edgar  b. 5 Au. 1829) and had dau. Anne, moved to Cattaraugus Co., later to Illinois;  

(9)      Moses  (VI 1);

(10)  Nancy b. 1815 who m. David Loop, lived in Cattaraugus Co., had Charlotte, Mary and David;

      (11)  Matthew b. 1817  d. 18 May 1880, aged 62, in Woodbine, Harrison Co., Iowa, m.
             Harriet Lord and had Emily, Adeline, Lydia I. who d. 15 Feb. 1851, Hensonville, aged
             4 yrs. 1 mo. 11 d., Luella, Adna (?), and Matthew Henry.

According to family tradition Matthew’s and Lydia’s parents and brother George settled in East Jewett in a cabin next to the others, but there is no evidence they remained. They are not mentioned in family records, 1810 census does not account for them anywhere in Greene Co., the numbers in the households of Matthew, Lydia, and Rogers are known and could not have included the parents and brother in 1810.

In the late 1800’s George I.  b. Dutchess Co  d. 29 May 1883, town of Windham, son of George I. Winter  b. Otsego Co. and Emma Ferris Frayer, town of Windham, was a blacksmith and merchant in Big Hollow (now Maplecrest).  George I, Sr. may well have been Matthew’s brother, and the David Winter living in the old town of Windham in 1810 and in 1830 probably was also.

The will of John Winter (s) of Greenville, recorded in Catskill 23 Jan. 1828, names children Martha, Mary Kezia, Anna Mariah and Matthew, executor.

The first Dutchess Co. census (1790) states that a Matthew Winter was head of a family in town of Fishkill consisting of two males over 16, one male under 16, and three females; and there was a second Matthew


Winter listed in that census. A Moses Winter served in the Revolution from Dutchess Co.

                  Tenn., where he built two great tanneries, later owned by the U. S. Leather Co., the
