Bill’s Family: Ancestors of Eldora Beahm

 
These pages are a compilation of my work and that of others. You are welcome to use anything on this page, but be aware that although I have been as careful and accurate as possible, I am not a professional genealogist. I have been working on our genealogy for over 25 years, and started the website in 2005. Some of the lines I have researched myself; some, especially on Rita’s side, we inherited the research of other family members over the past 75 years. Still, the majority of these pages are limited to compilations from published books and what I could find on the internet. The target audience was and remains our family, so the family pages are limited to our own ancestors. I have set it up so that each page is one set of ancestors, with their descendants. For the most part I have limited my scope to their great-grandchildren (second cousins to us); in some cases I list sources which may continue further.   HOME

Stephen Hand and Esther Osborn

 


 

3906. Stephen Hand was born in 1661 in East Hampton (Suffolk) New York, and died 13 Nov 1740 in Wainscott (Suffolk) New York. He is a son of Stephen Hand [7812] and Sarah Stratton [7813]. Stephen married in 1686 in Wainscott,

3907. Esther Osborn. Esther was born 1 Mar 1666 in Wainscott (Suffolk) New York, and died 26 Feb 1738/39 in Wainscott. She is a daughter of John Osborn [7814] and Marian ___ [7815].

Stephen and Esther had nine children:

3906.1. Stephen Hand (1687 NY - 1762) had descendants and is expanded below.

3906.2. Daniel Hand was born in 1689 in East Hampton (Suffolk) New York, and died 17 Nov 1709.

3906.3. John Hand (1694 NY - 1755 GA) had descendants and is expanded below.

3906.4. Rebecca Hand (~1696 NY) had descendants and is expanded below.

3906.5. Phebe Hand was born in 1700 in Wainscott (Suffolk) New York, and died about 1722. She married 19 Nov 1719, John Graves, son of John Graves and Hannah Davis. John was born 3 Mar 1695 in East Guilford, Connecticut, and died 8 Oct 1771. He was a blacksmith. They had no children; her death shortly after marriage suggests Phebe may have died in childbirth. After Phebe died, John married another of our relatives, 3910.3 Keziah Norton.

3906.6. Abigail Hand [1953] (1701 NY - 1730 CT) and David Blatchley are direct ancestors, separate page.

3906.7. Lydia Hand was born about 1704 Wainscott (Suffolk) New York, and died 19 Sep 1719 in (Georgia?), age 15. I have a problem with Lydia and her sister Pamela, as the website sources for this family have them both dying at a young age in Georgia. Their parents and most of their siblings died on Long Island, where they were born. It is possible that the family moved to Georgia for a time in the 1710’s, then moved back to New York, but New York to Georgia is an unusual move that does not fit the mainstream migration patterns of the time. I think it is more likely that Lydia and Pamela do not belong in this family, or that our Lydia and Pamela are confused with others of the same name in Georgia.

3906.8. Pamela Hand was born in 1706 Wainscott (Suffolk) New York, and died 6 Sep 1719 in (Georgia?), age 13. As with her sister Lydia above, I think there is something wrong with her dying in Georgia at 13 when the family appears to have remained in New York.

3906.9. Mary Hand (1708 NY) had descendants and is expanded below.

 


 

3906.1. Stephen Hand was born in 1687 in East Hampton (Suffolk) New York, and died in 1762 in East Hampton.

3906.3.1.2. unknown daughter Hand was born about 1750. The fact that we don’t know the first name might mean that she was an unnamed baby that died at birth, but not necessarily. There may be a baptism record yet to be found.
