Dods Family

Generation #1


Bartholomew Dods and Mary Doremus

baptized 1 August 1767 at Dutch Reform Church Pompton Plains N.J.

Elizabeth Manderville (Mandeviele) (Ref #7B) abt 1789 perhaps Pompton Plains


2.1.1  Maria Dods bpt 11 May 1790 at Pompton Plains DRC (N.J.)

2.1.2  John Dods born 27 December 1792 (Ref #7B) bpt 7 March 1793 at Schenectady DRC Sponsers John Schermerhorn, Annatje Frederikse

2.1.3  Antje Dods born 9 November 1795 (Ref Pearson First Settlers of Schenectady) bpt 7 Feb 1796 Schenectady DRC

2.1.4  David Mandeville Dodds born 27 August 1798 baptized 5 February 1799 at Dutch Reform Church at Schenectady (Pam Sears gives Bpt date of 27 Jan 1799 at Schenectady DRC)

2.1.5  Caroline Dods born 1804 at Phelps Ontario Co N.Y. (Ref # 2d)

2.1.6  Daniel Dods born about 1814 perhaps his mother was Margaret (Ref Aber History of Hamilton County) (Ref #4) Daniel and his wife Hannah were still in Benson in 1847 but had left the Town by 1860 (Aber Ref #21) There was a Daniel Dodds show in the 1840 census of the Town of Florida, Montgomery County and in the 1850 census of the Town of Hope in Hamilton County.

It is likely this "John Dod 1767- ?", was the one referred to by Abner in his history of Hamilton County Page 361 (Ref #21) as living on or near Lots 65 and 66 in the Benson Tract (on North Street approx 1/2 mile north of present Hamilton County Road #6).  He is also likely the "John Dodds" that appeared in the 1825 Census of the Town of Hope (Ref #13) (Ref #21) as head of the family.

It is possible that the John Dods of the 1810 Saratoga County census was John Sr. as well (Info anyone ?)

It is likely this "John" is the one that signed the petition in 1825 asking that Hamilton County be dissolved and that Benson be attached to Fulton County (Ref #21)
