John married at least twice, and possibly three times. His first wife is believed to be Clara Requa, daughter of Elijah and Eustatia (Comb) Requa, also of Tarrytown, NY. From the book "The Family of Requa: 1678-1898," compiled by Amos Conklin Requa, 1898, p. 44:

"Clara, daughter of Elijah, married John Buckout. They lived in Newburgh, N.Y., afterward bought a farm in Cayuga County, N.Y. They had eight daughters and one son."

"Believe this John Buckhout is the son of Jacob & Jane (Hammond) Buckhout, born July 16, 1804 near Tarrytown (Greenburgh), Westchester Co., NY. His first wife was Clarissa [Clara?] Requa and they were married in Tarrytown, NY. She died in about 1848. He then married Elizabeth. His third wife was Mary Ann Coles. He moved to Waseca County, Minnesota between his second and third wife [Eliza died in 1859 in MN - Carol M]. I think Mary Ann's mother was a Requa from New York. (Deborah, Mary Ann's sister, lived with them in Minnesota and later died in Illinois. Her death certificate lists her mother's maiden name, Requa, and her father's full name, William Coles)."

Marriage Notes: From the "Records of Marriages & Baptisms of the Presbyterian Churches of Rumbout & Poughkeepsie" as copied from NY Genealogical & Biographical Record, Volumes LXVIII, LXIX and LXX, Sept. 12, 1941:

Marriages, p. 41
"Jany 15, 1766 Isaac Vail & Esther Buckhout"

These records are very meticulous about noting "widow" and "widower" status. Since there is nothing noted against (H)esther Buckhout, I am suspicious that she was not a widow and; therefore, was not the same Hester Buckhout who married Hendrick Lott in 1755, as many other researchers have reported.

Noted events in their marriage were:

Marriage Location: Rumbout Presbyterian Church, Dutchess Co., NY, United States.

General Notes: Isaac appears in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Patriot Book as a Captain serving in the Revolutionary War. This is confirmed in the "Military Minutes of the Council of appointment of the State of New York, 1783-1821," vol. I, 1901, p. 68, where Isaac appears as a Captain in Dutchess Co., NY as follows:

"Dutchess County

1786
Isaac Veal [sic], captain, No. 7; Zephaniah Platt, junior, lieutenant, No. 7; Albert Monford, ensign, No. 7."

On Jan. 28, 1792, Isaac & Hester Vail, of Fishkill Town, conveyed one hundred and fifty five acres for 250 to Robert Elliott, of Bedford, Westchester Co., NY. The land beginning at a corner of the lands of John Van Voorhees and the late Elias Van Voorhees, running to the partition line of Britt and Van Voorhees, to the corner of the farm of Gerritje Van Voorhees and back to beginning. This land was previously conveyed by William Rue Van Voorhees (son-in law) to Isaac Vail on Jan. 27, 1792. (Source: Original Deeds, Town of Fishkill, Rumbout Precinct, Dutchess Co., NY, Libre K, p. 309)

Isaac's will (written July 6, 1808 and proved Oct. 18, 1808) appears in the Dutchess Co., NY Wills, Vol. C-D 1806-1815, Pg. 252-255:

Margaret married Rufus Greene Jr.,437 son of Rufus Greene and Martha, on 10 Jul 1768 in Poughkeepsie, Dutchess Co., NY, United States 436.,438 Rufus was born on 17 Jan 1747 in East Greenwich, Kent Co., RI, United States.439

Marriage Notes: Rufus & Margaret (Boekhout) Greene were married on July 10, 1768 at the First Reformed Dutch Church in Poughkeepsie, Dutchess Co., NY as recorded in the parish register, p. 15:

"1768 July 10; Rufus Greene of Rhode Island and Maragrieta Boekhout of Vischkill [sic - likely Fishkill]"

Noted events in their marriage were:

Marriage Location: First Reformed Dutch Church, Poughkeepsie, Dutchess Co., NY, United States.

General Notes: After marrying in Dutchess Co., NY in 1768, Rufus and Margaret are found in East Greenwich, Kent Co., RI for the birth of their first child. The following is from the Town Clerk's Vital Records, v. 2, p. 131:

"Nancy Greene, first Daughter of Rufus Greene Jr., and born of the body of Margaret his Wife in East Greenwich March ye 12th AD 1770 the second Day of the Week about 7 o'clock in the evening."

Rufus Greene and his family fled the US at the close of the Revolutionary War and appear in a Post War Settlement, Provision Return, along the St. Johns River in New Brunswick, Canada as follows:

"Provision Return for the Number of Men, Women and Children, belonging to no particular Company of Loyalists, at St. Johns River, for Thirty one Days commencing the 1st & ending the 31st May 1784 inclusive Vizt.

Rufus Green
1 Man, 1 Woman, 2 Children above 10 years, 2 Children under 10 years. No. of Rations per Day -- 5"

(Source: Great Britain, Public Record Office, Treasury, Class I, Volume 609, Folio 334)

Some additional details are found in Appendix VIII Alphabetized List of Refugee Loyalist Households: 1783-84 as found in D.G. Bell's "Early Loyalist Saint John: The Origin of New Brunswick Politics 1783-1786," New Ireland Press: Fredericton, NB, 1983, p. 204. According to the author, p. 172, the above is extracted from records at the "...Public Record Office, London, contained in WO60/33 pts1&2 (company musters at New York and passenger lists on board ship) and T1/609 (victualling lists as Saint John and in the lower Saint John Valley)."

Green, Rufus; S [meaning refugee travelled in the Spring Fleet of May 1783]
Family at New York: 1 adult male; 1 adult female; 3 children > 10 yrs; 1 children < 10 yrs; 1 servant
Family on Arrival: 1 adult male; 1 adult female; 2 children > 10 yrs; 2 children < 10 yrs; 1 servant
Family May 1784: 1 adult male; 1 adult female; 2 children > 10 yrs; 2 children < 10 yrs; 0 servants

From the above, it would appear that either one of Rufus and Margaret's children (> 10 yrs) died between leaving New York and arriving in NB in 1783 and another was born, or one of their four children was classified incorrectly at NY.

Rufus submitted a claim, with respect to losses suffered as a result of loyalty to the British Crown during the Revolution, as noted in "American Loyalist Claims," vol. I, by Peter Wilson Coldham, F.A.S.G., National Genealogical Society; Wash., DC, 1980, p. 201:

"Green, Rufus, Cortland Manor, N.Y. Fled within lines in N.Y. Aug. 1776. Memorial 15 Feb. 1786 Kingston, N.B. Claim: House; bonds; half of sloop 'Sally,' sloop 'Resolution.' (AO13/21/198-99)"

Abstracts from Public Record Office, Audit Office Series (AO), 13. His loss was estimated at 620. This was noted in "Biographical Sketches of Loyalists of the American Revolution" by Gregory Palmer, Meckler Publishing: Westport, London, 1984, p. 339.

In the file, housed at the National Archives in England, Rufus Greene details his allegiance and claim as follows:

"No. 248, Capt. Green's Claim - New Claim D'd 14 March 1786 Deferred 22 March 1786

Rufus appears in a Land Petition of fifteen names, submitted by Thomas Coambs [sic] in 1785 in Queens Co., NB. He is also listed in a Land Petition filed by John W. Gill, with 23 others, in Kings Co., NB in 1791.

Esther Clark Wright, in "The Loyalists of New Brunswick," Lancelot Press; Hantsport, NS, 1955, p. 287 identifies Rufus Greene as a Loyalist:

"Green, Rufus; N.Y. D. Co.; Sussex"

The above means 'Rufus Green from New York, Dutchess Co.,' and his first land grant would have been in Sussex Co., NB.

In the New Brunswick Land Petitions, Original Series 1783 onwards, there is a petition dated Jan. 25, 1809 by Joseph Stackhouse Sr., Joseph Stackhouse Jr., Henry Taylor and James Stackhouse in which they are praying as applicants for lots of land "in any vacant situation between the rear of the Grant to Abijah Waters & others, on the South East side of the River Kennebeckacis.. the lots on the Cumberland Road..."

In the petition there is the following "Note - The above memorialists to wit & expect to have included in their application the lands formerly surveyed for John Buckhout, Aaron Delong & Isaac Hall - as no Improvements whatever has been made on said Lands..."

Joseph Stackhouse Sr. being memorialized as "having serv'd as a Seargent nearly the whole of the American War..." For each they are requesting "to Joseph Stackhouse Senr, Joseph Stackhouse Junr & Henry Taylor all of whom have Familys Lots of three hundred acres each, & James Stackhouse Single Man a Lot of 200 acres.. " At the end of the Application there is also the following:

"25th Jan. 1809

The Lands described in this Memorial formerly surveyed for Rufus Green and others in 5 Lots of 200 acres each is vacant together with a tract lying southerly from the said Lots between the Grants described -

General Notes: The following excerpt is from "The Settlers of the Beekman Patent" Dutchess County, New York (an historical and genealogical study of all 18th C. inhabitants of the Patent) by Frank Doherty, vol. II, 1993, chapter 77 "The Bookout Family," p. 642 - 643:

"John Bookout noted as brother to Hester the wife of Isaac Vail of Fishkill in his will written July 1808." [Dutchess County Wills on file in the Surrogate Court, Poughkeepsie, NY. DCW Box refers to probate boxes in basement of Court house - C: 252] In Isaac Vail's will, John was bequeathed the sum of $ 50 payable one year from his death.

"John was in Fishkill in 1790 as 1-1-3 and near Mille Appelbee and Issac Vail. A John Bookout was in Beekman in 1810 with 0-1-1-0-1 and 2-1-1-0-1 and 2 cattle and next to James Alley. He was the John Buckhout who m. Anna Appleby 4 March 1784 at Fishkill and lived at Beekman before removing to Marcellus in Onondaga Co. where he d. 1820. He lived with Isaac Vail, the father of Rachel Van Voorhis, before he was married. His widow applied for a Rev. Pension 18 March 1839 when living in NY City. The had children (at least); William and Adeline, both of NY City in 1839." [Rev. War Pension File W16201]

In the "Additions and Corrections" section of Frank Doherty's work is the following notation:

"BUCKHOUT family
p. 641

This family name should be Boeckhout or Buckhout, not Bookout as we had it."

From the census records, it is possible to hypothesize that in 1790 John & Anna had one son and two daughters. By the 1800 Census for Beekman, Dutchess County, John is listed with three (3) sons under ten years of age and himself aged 26 - 45 yrs, with 2 daughters (one < 10 yrs and one between 10 and 16 yrs) plus his wife between 26 - 45 yrs = total of 5 children at this point. In 1810, Dutchess Co., John and Anna appear again with 6 children aged as follows: 1 male 10 to 16 yrs, 1 male 16 to 26 yrs, 2 females < 10 yrs, 1 female 10 - 16 yrs, and 1 female 16 - 26 yrs. It is worthwhile noting that one of the three sons in the 1800 census appears to be missing from the 1810 census. Could this son be living elsewhere or has possibly died?

From a set of Miscellaneous Papers of the Dutchess County Historical Society comes the following reference:

"Town of Beekman Records, p. 229

In pursuance of an Act of the Legislature of the State of New York passed June 19, 1812, we the undersigned commissioners duly elected do devise the Town of Beekman into a suitable and convenient school districts. Have distributed said town in the following manner viz:

District No. 5 House near John Billings

John Buckhout [one of twenty names listed]"

The following information is gathered from various letters/affidavits which comprise the Revolutionary War Pension File W16201, which was filed by Anna Buckhout in an effort to secure a widow's pension based on John's military service (Act Granting Half Pay & Pensions to Certain Widows was passed July 7, 1838).

William Hughson, Esquire, from Fishkill, attested John fought for three years in the Revolutionary War. His service included fighting at the Battle of Bennington in Vermont and at the taking of General Burgoyne at Saratoga in NY State. William also wrote that John returned to live at Colonel Isaac Vail's home after the war (prior to marrying Anna) and that he then re-enlisted as a wheelwright for the Continental Service. Frank Doherty noted in his "Additions & Corrections" section of "Settlers of the Beekman Patent" volume 3, 1993, p. 934 'Bookout Family':

"John Buckhout was paid $ 76 on 30 June 1781 for 76 days service as wheelwright ending 31 May 1781 at 8/ and $ 98 on 30 Dec. 1780 for 98 days pay as wheelwright ending 30 Nov. 1780 at 8/day. He was also paid $ 52.22 on 28 March 1781 for 77 days as wheelwright ending 28 Feb. 1781 at 8/."

Anna wrote that Colonel Ethan Allen visited her father in NY City in approximately 1786 and identified him as a soldier in the Revolutionary War. Rachel (Vail) Van Voorhis also wrote in a letter that John spent time at Fort George and nearby areas while he was in the army. John did have the option to apply for a survivor's pension after the war, but he would have had to say he was destitute, which he was not, and thus, did not apply for his own pension.

Bernardus Germand wrote a letter from Livingston, Columbia Co., NY in which he stated that he had provided a promisory note to John Buckhout of Fishkill, Dutchess County, in the sum of 200 dollars dated Dec. 23, 1807 in exchange for conveyance of Lot 96 in Solon [present day Cortland County], Onondaga County. The land had previously been granted to John for his military service in the Revolutionary War. This was validated by Arch'd Campbell, Deputy Secretary of State, Albany, NY on October 23, 1838 with the following notice:

"I certify that John Buckhout was a Private in Lee's Legion and at appears by the balloting book of the commissioners of the Land Office of this state [see printed book p. 75] and that Lot #96 in the Township #20 of Solon in the Military Tract containing 600 acres was granted to him for his services. The said Lot was granted by Letters Patent under the great seal of this state to said John Buckhout bearing date the 13th of September 1790."

According to further letters from Adeline, John did leave Fishkill in about 1790 to travel to NY City to get his Patent. However, it does not appear that the land transaction with Bernardus Germand was finalized. Subsequently in 1809, while living in Dutchess County, John was approached by Paul Connell to sell his land bounty rights. Paul was a speculator in soldier's lands and he went to their house in Beekman again in about 1811/1812 and purchased John's land for $ 100.

Adeline writes on October 19, 1840:

"My father said it [Lot #96 in Solon] was so far off and in the new countries that it would never be of any use to him... In those days 300 or 400 miles was considered a greater distance than 3000 or 4000 is at this time. This Paul Connell appeared like a very good sort of man and promised us children all a present, but, we have not got it yet, but he has got all those old papers that my mother needs consequently they are beyond our reach for we do not know that he is living."

Adeline writes that her father, John Buckhout, was born August 1758 in Fishkill, Dutchess County, NY. John & Anna moved from Beekman, Dutchess Co., to Marcellus, Onondaga Co., in 1818. Two years later, John died on January 7, 1820 at Marcellus. Adeline indicates she was "17 in 1820" when her father died, placing her birth around 1802/1803.

A Bounty Land Warranty Record Card dated August 26, 1789 states that John Buckhout, Private in Lee's Partisan Legion, Virginia, was issued Warranty Numbers 11899 and 12858 for 100 acres. There is a further service card on file which states "Warrant No. 12858 for 100 acres issued the 26th Aug'st 1789 to John Buckhout a Private in Lee's Legion. It appears by the N. York "Balloting Book," page 112, that Buckhout was an inhabitant of the State of New York when he enlisted into Lee's Legion."

Recorded in the "Calendar of NY Colonial Manuscripts - Indorsed Land Papers 1643 - 1803" compiled by E.B. O'Callaghan, Harbor Hill Books; NY, 1987, p. 826:

"vol. XLIX July 6, 1790 Claim of John Buckhout for a right of bounty lands p. 79"



Noted events in his life were:

Residence: 1790, Fishkill, Dutchess Co., NY, United States. 447

Residence: 19 Jun 1812, Beekman, Dutchess Co., NY, United States. 448

John married Anna Appleby, daughter of Stephen Appleby and Amelia, on 4 Mar 1784 in Fishkill, Dutchess Co., NY, United States.449 Anna was born on 19 May 1762 in Fishkill, Dutchess Co., NY, United States,450 died on 30 Jul 1841 in New York, NY, United States451,452 aged 79, and was buried on 30 Jul 1841 in New York, NY, United States.450 The cause of her death was Lung Disease.

Marriage Notes: Anna and John were married on March 4, 1784 by Rev. James Philips, Pastor of the Fishkill Town Baptist Church. This was a small church, between 20 and 30 members, and no church records have survived. It was used by many different religious denominations before finally closing in the early 1800's. Anna returned to Fishkill in 1838 and spoke with William Hughson, Esquire, whose wife had been a member of the church and she indicated no one was left and the records were long gone.

No marriage certificate was issued, as was not unusual at the time. Rev. Philips died around 1814, according to Anna's letter dated March 18, 1839, contained in her Rev. War Widow's Application File # W16201.

Noted events in their marriage were:

Marriage Location: Fishkill Town Baptist Church, Fishkill, Dutchess Co., NY, United States.

General Notes: The following information is derived from a series of letters written by Anna, her daughter, Adeline, and various other close friends or family members in support of her Revolutionary War Widow's Pension application (W16201).

Anna was born and raised in Fishkill, Dutchess Co., NY. She was a member of the Baptist Church and attended the town church in Fishkill, Dutchess Co., NY from at least 1784 to 1788. She and John were married on a Sunday afternoon or evening at the Fishkill Baptist Church. After the ceremony, a wedding party was held at Rachel Vail's father's home (Isaac & Hester (Buckhout) Vail) in Fishkill. At the time of their marriage, Anna was living a mile distant and John was living with Isaac & Hester Vail (his sister). Rachel Vail writes that the wedding was intended for some time and that the couple had a "large family of children."

On April 6, 1884, from Barrington Station, Illinois, Gilbert Adelbert Appleby, son of Levi Appleby Anna's brother, wrote a letter to his son William Harrison Appleby in reply to the latter's inquiry about the family history. Contained within the missive is a small entry referencing Rhoda and Anna Appleby:

"I now remember seeing an Aunt Rhoda. She lived in New York. And an Aunt Anna. She came West, to the western part of New York State. All on my Father's side."

(Source: "Our Roots Go Deep - Family Stories" by Tom Applebee, Cincinnatti, OH: Applebee Family Data, 2000, p. 30)

This is an extract from "Reminiscences of Mrs. Richard Lazier" written in August 1893, when she was in her 89th year. Mrs. Richard Lazier was Anna Bookhout Appleby, a niece of Anna (Appleby) Bookhout, daughter of Thomas Dorland Appleby, Anna's brother:

"Father [Thomas D. Appleby] had two sisters, Anna, who married John Bookhout, lived on Walker Street, near the theatre on Bowery Street in New York City. Her family was two sons and two daughters. Nancy married Edward Story, an engraver. John, the oldest son, was married and very wealthy. He lived in Brooklyn, and was a great contractor. He married a daughter of one of the wealthiest families. I forgot her maiden name. They had one child, a beautiful grown up daughter, Adelaide. And the other two, William and Adeline, died unmarried. They were all members of the Baptist Church and great singers."

After her husband's death in January of 1820, Anna stayed in Marcellus for a brief time and is found in the 1820 census records (taken Aug. 7, 1820) with her son William (as head of household) along with two daughters aged 16-26 years and one other son 16-26 years. However, she did move back to New York City not long after and took up residence in Manhattan not far from her sister, Rhoda (Appleby) Keese, and family.

Anna Bookhout is found in the 1840 NY City Census in the 14th Ward, between Broome & Mulberry St., as follows:

Anna Bookhout
1 FWM 20 - 30 yrs
1 FWM 40 - 50 yrs [likely William Buckhout]
1 FWF 30 - 40 yrs [likely Adeline Buckhout]
1 FWF 70 - 80 yrs [Anna Buckhout]

The following obituary was published in the "NY Evening Post," July 31, 1841, No. 11,984, p. 2, column 8:

"On Friday morning, 30th instant, in full confidence of a blissful immortality, Mrs. Anna Bookhout, in the 80th year of her age. Funeral on Sunday afternoon, August 1st, at 1 o'clock, from her late residence, No. 389 Broome street."

Anna was buried in the Old New York Marble Cemetery (2nd Ave. above 2nd Street) in Vault # 112, owned by John D. Keese (purchased 1830) who was the son of her sister, Rhoda. The cemetery records indicate Anna died of lung disease and was 79 yrs, 2 mos and 11 days at her death. If this information is correct, that would make Anna's birth date May 19, 1762.

Anna's death is also recorded in the Manhattan Register of Deaths, 1795-1865, v. 11 as follows:

"Date of Decease: 1841 July 30, Name: Bookhout, Anna [note: clerical error in the Register shows first name as "Hamilton," this was first name of the prior entry], Residence: 389 Broome, Age: 79-2-1, Place of Nationality: Dutchess Co., Disease: Disease of Lungs, Cemetery: Marble Cemetery, Sexton: T. [or F] Halliday"

Anna Buckhout died intestate and her Letters of Administration were granted & recorded on Feb. 9, 1844 in New York Co., NY. Her son, John Buckhout, was appointed administrator of the estate. Noted on the Petition for Administration were the following survivors, her children alive at the time:

"John Buckhout, petitioner, son
Nancy King, widow
Eliza, wife of Stephen Southland
Amelia, wife of Stephen Gale [note: evidence suggests this is an error, should be Richard Gale]
Adeline Buckhout, single woman"

All were noted to be of "full age" at the time of filing.

It is important to note that Anna was finally issued a Widow's Pension relative to her husband John's Revolutionary War Service (New York # 8034) on January 27, 1844 in the amount of $100 per year, $500 total, retroactive to March 4, 1836.

She appears in the "Ledger of Payments 1818-1872 to US Pensioners" for the City of New York, from March 1836 to March 1841 as follows:

"Anna Buckhout, [Widow of:] John, Rank: Dragoon, Half Yearly Amount: $50, Commencement: March 4, 1836 - paid each March & Sept and concluding March, 1841."

(From Records of the Office of the Third Auditor of the Treasurey 1818-1872, National Archives Microfilm, T718, 23 rolls)

Sadly, since Anna passed away in 1841, this may have been the impetus for the Letters of Administration which were filed by her son John shortly thereafter.

Religion: Baptist, 1784.

   227 M    iv. William Buckhout was born between 1797 and 1798 in New York, United States,464,465 died on 7 Sep 1842 in New York, NY, United States,466,467 and was buried about Sep 1842 in New York, NY, United States. The cause of his death was Heart Disease.

General Notes: William appears as the head of household in the 1820 US Census (taken Aug. 7, 1820 and there was a thirteen month period allowed for completion of the return) for Marcellus, Onondaga Co., NY as follows:

"Bookhout, William
2 FWM 16 < 26 yrs
2 FWF 16 < 26 yrs
1 FWF > 45 yrs
1 engaged in Agriculture
1 engaged in Manufactures"

Williams' father, John Buckhout, had died on January 7, 1820 in Marcellus. The remaining family members moved from Marcellus to New York City sometime shortly thereafter. William's brother, John, likely having already relocated to the City where he was married in April 1820.

William Bookhout was appointed a Fireman, City of NY, as follows: Common Council Minutes, June 20, 1825, p. 25/6. "The following persons were appointed firemen the Chief Engineer certifying the Vacancies, viz \endash Hose Company No. 1. [among others] William Bookhout Carpenter 137 Pump St. [Residence] Vs John L. Ackerman, Time Expired."

(Source: Minutes of Common Council of City of NY 1784-1831, vol. XIV, Aug. 2, 1824 \endash Nov. 7, 1825, 1917, p. 649 [DAR Library; Wash., DC])

William died suddenly in 1842 as evidenced by this notice in the "New York Herald," Sept 8, 1842, p. 2, column D:

"SUDDEN DEATH. -- Mr. William Buckhout, carpenter, while standing at the corner of Grand and Orange Streets, yesterday, fell down and expired instantly. He had been as well as usual during the day, and an examination of the coroner resulted in a verdict of death from apoplexy."

The NY City, Manhattan Death Register, v.13, records William's death on Sept. 6, 1842:

"1842 Sept 6 Bookhouse [sic], William, residence: 224 Centre [St.?], age: 44 yrs, born: NY, cause of death: Disease of Heart, cemetery: German Lutheran, sexton: Louis Springer"

Because of his sudden death, a Coroner's investigation was performed. There is an entry in the "Coroner's Reports New York City, 1823-1842" abstracted by Kenneth Scott, vol. XII, NY Genealgoical & Biographical Society, 1989, p. 15:

"Bookhout, William - heart disease, b. New York State, age 44 or 45, carpenter by trade. Nancy King is his sister. (7 Sept. 1842)"

In the full transcript of the Inquest, which was held at Nancy King's home at 224 Centre St., 14th Ward, NY City, on Sept. 7, 1842, it was determined William died of heart disease. Nancy provided one of the sworn witness statements:

"Nancy King -- being duly sworn says I am the sister of Deceased - he was born in the State of New York. Think he is 44 or 45 years of age. He was carpenter by occupation, his health has been poor for several years past. He was in the habit of visiting me very frequently. Was in here last night at dusk. He appeared quite as well as usual at that time. That is the last time I saw him until [?] he was brought into the house today between 12 to one o'clock apparently quite dead. I do not know the case of his death. I never knew the Deceased to have a fit. He has complained a great deal of his heart palpitations etc. He has no family -

Nancy "X" (her mark) King"

A further funeral notice appeared in the "New-York Daily Tribune," 8 Sept. 1842, p. 3, col. 4:

"DIED

In this city, suddenly, Sept. 7 William Bookhout, aged 45 years.

His friends and acquaintances, and those of his brother John, are requested to attend the funeral, this afternoon (Thursday) at half-past 3 o'clock, from the house of his sister, No. 224 Centre-street."

Medical Notes: From the "Coroner's Reports New York City, 1823-1842" abstracted by Kenneth Scott, published by the NY Genealogical & Biographical Society, 1989, p. 15:

"Bookhout, William - heart disease, b. New York State, age 44 or 45, carpenter by trade. Nancy King is his sister. (7 Sept. 1842)"

The latter date in the transcription is the date of the coroner's inquest.

General Notes: After Adeline's death in 1849, a box of her belongings was shipped to her sister Amelia (Bookhout) Gale. A descendant of Amelia's through her daughter Theodocia Gale, Julie Gibson, who resides in Michigan has a picture of Adeline and a note that contains the following information:

"This daguerrotype is of Adeline Bookhout born in Dutchess Co., NY 1802 died in New York City in 1849. She was a Tailoress in City of New Y. and her mother Annie Mabie [?] Bookhout lived with her. Adaline Bookhout secured a pension for her mother ($8.00 per mo.) her father John Bookhout having served in the Revolutionary War. Adeline Bookhout was a sister of Amelia Esmond Bookhout Gale. This box was among Adeline Bookhout's belongings after her death & was sent to Amelia Gale & given to her daughter Theodocia Gale.

Note: a small note written at the top of the page says {given to Mrs. Cora [?] S. Darling by Josephine Gale 4-25-1917}"

However, Julia Gibson was unsure who actually wrote the note and when. The above was received via email, Sept. 4, 2011.

119. John Buckhout 260 was born between 1750 and 1760 in Fishkill, Dutchess Co., NY, United States261 and died on 13 Oct 1819 in St. John, NB, Canada.262

General Notes: John served in the Revolutionary War from at least 1777 to 1783, fighting on the British side. He appears in the Muster Rolls for the Loyal American Regiment under Lt. Col. Beverly Robinson throughout that time period. His first enlistment, name spelled as "John Bookhout," is in 1777 when he is shown as a Corporal. By December 30, 1777 he achieved the rank of Sergeant, a title he holds until the end of the war.

John's unit was at Norwich on July 1, 1783. His last appearance in the muster rolls is on August 22, 1783 at Camp New Town Heights where he is listed with the following notation in the column headed "for what reason absent," "on Furlough," and in the next column it looks like a further notation "country" is indicated. Is it possible he was at his home in Dutchess County transferring title of his father's leasehold farm to his mother? Much of the regiment were already gone at this point, some noted as having died or deserted, while a few had already relocated to Nova Scotia. (Source: British Military Records, "C" Series, Loyal American Regiment) John likely left shortly thereafter and was probably in St. John, NB by the fall of 1783.

It should be noted that members of the Loyal American Regiment were the last to leave NY City. The regiment left in 2 dispatches on the ships "Ann" and "Apollo" in the "fall fleet" arriving in NB on the Saint John River, Sept 27, 1783, according to research chronicled in D.G. Bell's "Early Loyalist Saint John," 1983, p. 28-29.

From the "Loyalist in Arms 1775-1783" by W.O. Raymond, 2005, p. 13:

"The Loyal American Regiment - This corps was raised almost entirely by the efforts of Colonel Beverly Robinson, a wealthy citizen of Dutchess county, on the Hudson River. Its officers and men were nearly all natives of the Provinces of New York. A few months after its organization the regiment took part in the expedition of Sir Henry Clinton against Forts Clinton and Montgomery. After their return to New York they formed part of the garrison there. They took part in the campaign in Pennsylvania and assisted in the capture of Stony Point on the Hudson River May 30th, 1779. Afterwards they were engaged in the campaign in the south under Lord Conwallis. They suffered very heavily at the disastrous battle of King's Mountain, where a band of the Loyalist troops, outnumbered by their enemies and surrounded on all sides, were obliged to surrender. Col. Robinson had as his Lieutenant-Colonel his son Beverley Robinson, Jr., and others of his sons were officers in the King's service in one or other of the provincial corps..."

According to the same source, p. 24, the Loyal American Regiment, under Col. Beverly Robinson, had a total of 10 companies with 33 officers and 394 non-commissioned officers & men. The earliest date of formation or commissions was Mar. 28, 1777.

John is mentioned as conveying his father's, Peter Buckhout's, farm to his mother, Jane Buckhout, on or about July 21/22, 1783 as follows:

"..formerly the farm of Peter Buckhout deceased and which by lease and release bearing date respectively the twenty first and twenty second days of July last [1783] was conveyed in fee to the said party of the second part [Jane Buckhout] by John Buckhout Eldest Son and heir to and the Devisee of the last will and testament of the said Peter Buckhout..."

Excerpt from Dutchess Co., NY, Mortgages, Libre 4, p. 146 - instrument dated June 4, 1784 mortgagor Thomas Brush to mortgagee Jane Buckhout.

One can only hypothesize now, with time and memory distant, how difficult it must have been for his mother and siblings during the Revolutionary War since John chose to align himself with the British. Fishkill was a 'hotbed' of activity on both sides during the many skirmishes and troop movements of the War.

John Buckhout or Bookhout, and family, is chonicled in the New Brunswick Archives, "First Families" records, as follows:

Manuscript Collection (MC3047), MS2D, Item 5 Donald P. Wright fonds, Chester Lucas notes -

"John Bookhout of Saint John, N.B., and Some of his Family

"John Bookhout, a Loyalist from Dutchess County, New York, settled following the American Revolution in Saint John, N.B., where he received a grant of Lot 1028, Parrtown. During the War, he had seen service as a Sergeant in Lt. Col. Beverley Robinson's Company of the Loyal American Regiment. On Feb. 26, 1819, John Bookhout, yeoman, gave to his son William, mariner, Lot 1028, Saint John, "in consideration of the Love good will and Affection" he held for him.

General Notes: Caleb was born in Connecticut and married Abigail Bookhout. They lived for many years in Delaware Co., NY as evidenced from this biographical sketch contained in the "Biographical Review: This Volume Contains Biographical Sketches of the Leading Citizens of Delaware County New York," published in 1895, Boston, NY, p. 533:

"Caleb married Abigail Bookhout, born July 8, 1782. They raised a family of seven children, namely: Jessie L., born July 9, 1807, died at an advanced age. Paulina A., born February 28, 1804, was the wife of A. Patton; and both she and her husband have passed away. Mary St. John, born August 27, 1811, was the wife of the late Solomon Robbins, and is no longer living. Belinda A., born February 25, 1816, died May 18, 1863, wife of Seba Beach. Sarah K., born July 2, 1818, died October 1, 1880, wife of Collins Brown. Seely K., born July 2, 1822, resides in Galesburg, Ill. Joseph R., born September 22, 1813, died November 23, 1892.

Caleb Wood came to Delaware County from Connecticut early in the century, and bought land near Walton, the country then being new and unsettled, and so primitive that the road was marked by notches cut in the trees, the wagons which passed being so few in number that they did not make a sufficient track to direct the traveller. After clearing the greater part of his land, he sold it, and bought one hundred acres of timbered land near Sidney Centre; and here he spent the rest of his life with his wife and numerous family. He was a member of the ancient Whig party, and a man of liberal religious views, far beyond his time..."
