Birthplace Pedigree Chart

I saw several of these charts posted on blogs and Facebook, which come from an original post by J. Paul Hawthorne.  So I decided to follow suit and have created birthplace charts for both myself and my husband.

I went to seven generations (including myself and my husband).  It was really interesting to me to look at the data in this way because it really confirmed for me some key things…

  1. My family has been in the United States for many generations, pretty consistently across the various branches of the family.
  2. My husband’s family has much more recent immigrant roots on his mother’s side of the family.
  3. I have more research to do to find the roots of my mother’s family.
  4. I have more research to do on my husband’s father’s side of the family – there are a lot of missing information about that branch of the family.
  5. My father’s family is pretty much Irish and German immigrants to the New York area (mostly Brooklyn).  Very strong roots in that region.
  6. My mother’s family is primarily from Georgia and Mississippi, with a little migration from Virginia and South Carolina.
  7. My husband’s mother’s family were all Polish immigrants (even though the birthplaces are variously Poland, Prussia and Germany).  I find it an intriguing example of how much the history of Poland has been dictated by the political history of Europe as a whole.
  8. My husband’s father’s family moved around a lot and their roots are largely unknown… They were primarily in the midwest (Missouri/Oklahoma), but it looks like if we go back a little farther, there may be more roots in the area of Illinois/Ohio/Pennsylvania.  They were definitely the more migratory of all the branches of our families.

In the 1810 US Census, her husband William Golden is listed in Westchester, Westchester County, New York, and presumably, she is the female over the age of 45 noted on the census as well.  There is one boy between the age of 10 and 15; three girls under the age of 10; one girl between the age of 10 and 15; one girl between the age of 16 and 25.  Also listed within a few entries of William Golden are other Golden families (presumably sons): Isiah Golden, notated as 26-45 years old and Simmonds Golden, notated as 16-26 years old.[2]

In the 1820 US Census for Westchester, a “Mrs. Golden” is listed, and in addition to herself, a male over the age of 45 years is marked as living in the household.  This is probably son living in the home with her, as if it was her husband, the household would have been enumerated under his name.  Some of the same neighbors as in the 1810 Census are enumerated on the same page as her, including the Bathgate, Hunt and Leggett.  In addition, the several Ward households are also enumerated nearby, which is the family her grandson Isaiah married into in 1809.[3]

Annie died in September 1850 in West Farms, New York at the age of 101.  Her cause of death was listed as “Old Age”.[4]

52 Ancestors – #9: William Golden

William Golden was born sometime in 1740 and baptized on November 7, 1740 in Seal, Kent, England.[1]  Seal is a small village in the district of Kent in England, located about 30 miles southwest of London.  Seal is an ancient village, having been recorded in 1086 in the Domesday Book, a survey of England completed by William the Conqueror.[2]  At some point, William Golden came to the colonies and settled in New York.  William presumably died sometime between 1810 and 1820.  He last appears in the 1810 US Census, with his family, in Westchester, Westchester County, New York.  Living in his home at the time are; one man over the age of 45 (William); one woman over the age for 45 years (Annie); one boy between the age of 10 and 15; three girls under the age of 10; one girl between the age of 10 and 15; one girl between the age of 16 and 25.  Also listed within a few entries of William Golden are other Golden families (presumably sons): Isiah Golden, notated as 26-45 years old and Simmonds Golden, notated as 16-26 years old.[3] Listed as neighbors in the few pages of the 1820 U.S. Census covering the town of Westchester were some well-known founding New York families, including the Leggett, Hunt, Bathgate and Drake families.

The $75 Poodle Takes the Night Off

On 25 July 1893, the New York World published an article entitled “Where was the $75 poodle?”

The article is about a burglary that week at the saloon of Walter Noteboom, my 3rd great-grandfather.  The article states:

Burglars Robbed His Master in Park Row and He Did Not Object

When Walter Noteboom, who keeps a saloon at No. 143 Park Row, returned from Germany about four months agao he brought a poodle dog for which he had paid $75.  The poodle in Germany had enjoyed the reputation of being an excellent watch-dog.  Since his arrival in this country the poodle has slept at night in Mr. Noteboom’s saloon.

Somehow or other the poodle must have had a night off on Sunday, because burglars entered Mr. Noteboom’s place before midnight, or early Monday morning, and stole $5 in cash, seventeen boxes of cigars, some clothing and several bottle of brandy.  The burglars passed through the hallway of No. 265 William street and scaled a seven-feet fence.  Then they forced the door of the kitchen at No. 143 Park Row and cut a panel through the door leading into the barroom.

Now, one has to wonder how a burglary and a poodle made the news in 1893… At that time, Park Row was also known as Newspaper Row.  The New York World Building was located at 53-63 Park Row, just down the street from Walter Noteboom’s bar.  Maybe the editor or journalist who wrote this piece (there is no byline) was a regular patron of the bar.  Much of this area has been razed, with the New York World Building being demolished in 1955 to make way for a car onramp for the Brooklyn Bridge.  What is left of Park Row is closed to car traffic today, due to its proximity to One Police Plaza and New York’s City Hall.
