I am trying to identify the parents of my 5th great-grandmother Rosanna ROE Mosher. Rosanna was born in New York in 1764. She married Cornelius Mosher in Dutchess Co., New York in 1782. Rosanna died in Columbia Twp., Bradford Co., Pennsylvania in 1848.
Cornelius Mosher was born in Nobletown, Dutchess Co., New York in 1760. He was the son of Hugh Mosher and Sarah DAVOL. Cornelius died in Columbia Twp., Bradford Co., Pennsylvania in 1825.
Rosanna and Cornelius had a family of nine children, viz: Hugh, Samuel, Ruamy, Nicholas, Christopher, Hannah, Lemuel, William, and Julia. The older children were born in Nobletown, Dutchess Co., New York, and the younger children were born in Coeymans, Albany Co., New York.
1790 - I have not been able to locate the household of Cornelius Mosher in the 1790 census record.
1800 – Cornelius and Rosanna are enumerated in Coeymans, Albany Co., New York. Residing next door to Cornelius are Joshua Row, Basell [Basil?] Row, and Samuel Row. A few households away are John Row and Nathan Row. All of the Row males are 26-45 years of age in 1800, i.e., born between 1756-1774. They may be the brothers or close relatives of my Rosanna ROE, born 1764.
1810 – Cornelius and Rosanna are enumerated in Kortright, Delaware Co., New York. There are no Roe/Row/Rowe families enumerated near the Mosher household.
1820 – Cornelius and Rosanna are enumerated in Columbia Twp., Bradford Co., Pennsylvania.
I have searched the Columbia Township tax assessment records for Roe males and found Nathan Roe and Timothy Row listed there, in 1839. Nathan B. Roe is enumerated in the 1840 census of Columbia Township; a Nathan Row is also listed in the 1850 census, aged 69 years (b. ca 1781) and born in New York. I have not been able to connect Nathan or Timothy to my Rosanna ROE. Also, there is a Schuyler Roe in Columbia Township circa 1870 but he was born in New Jersey.
Any information that might help me identify the parents of Rosanna ROE Mosher (1764-1848) would be much appreciated.
