Joseph Tillotson and Theodosia Youngs
Joseph Tillotson, son of
Joseph Tillotson and Hannah Messenger Graham,
was born about 1734, probably in Farmington, Connecticut.
He married Theodosia Youngs on February 15, 1759 in Farmington,
Connecticut. Theodosia was born in 1738, probably in Hebron,
Connecticut. She is often suggested to have been the daughter of
Lemuel Youngs and Martha Phelps; or the daughter of Eliphalet Youngs
and Margaret Loomis.
- Lemuel and Martha did not marry until 1742,
so their Theodosia could not have been born in 1738 unless
she was born well before their marriage.
- Eliphalet and Margaret did have two daughters
named Theodosia/Thedocia. The first Theodocia was born in 1758 and died in 1759.
The second Theodocia was born in 1762. She cannot have been
Joseph Tillotson's wife as he could not have married her
before she was born. So the identity of Joseph's wife remains obscure.
Joseph and Theodosia produced eight children:
Samuel Tillotson was born October 4, 1759
in Farmington, Connecticut. Samuel married Sarah Partridge on
March 16, 1786. Samuel died December 3, 1848 in Brunswick, Medina, Ohio.
Hannah Tillotson was born about 1761. She married Joseph Way on
January 13, 1780.
An unnamed infant was born November 11, 1762 and died the next day.
Joseph Tillotson was born November 28, 1763.
Lemuel Tillotson was born about 1766.
Theodocia Tillotson was born August 13, 1768 and died October 29, 1778.
Cynthia Tillotson was born August 15, 1771.
Silvia Tillotson was born August 15, 1771. She married
George Patterson on November 22, 1792.
Theodosia died on October 29, 1778, probably in Tyringham, Massachusetts.
Joseph died sometime after 1800, possibly in Oneida County, New York.
