  • Name SOULE, Benjamin 
    • Benjamin m. perhaps Dutchess Co., NY ca 1750 Elizabeth Davis daughter of Jonathan? and Martha?? (Howland) Davis. Elizabeth was b. perhaps Rutland (now Barre) 21 1mo 1730 and d. possibly Watervliet, (Albany) Ny after ca 1785 and probably ca 1808. Perhaps Elizabeth (Davis) Soule m. 2. Bangall, NY 11 Dec 1791 John Smith. She lived "a number of years after the death of her second husband and lived till near eighty".

      One Jonathan Davis is on Beekman tax lists June 1763 through June 1767, and Jonathan Davis Jr. from June 1765 through June 1766. Did Elizabeth (Davis) Soule remove to Sartoga, Albany, Schenectady Co., NY ca 1785 with her children?

      (Son) Jonathan ":Souls" is found for 1790 in Watervliet (Albany) NY with (1,1,2) along with [son-in-law] Abednego Rickertson with (1,3,2) [10]. On 22 Apr 1796 Jonathan Soule bought land, being lot 9 of Lot 1 of the snd allotment in Coeymans Patent (recorded 20 Oct 1808) {Albany Co., NY Deed Bk 20:116-117 (Peter W. Yates)]. [Son] Jonathan 'Solus' is found for 1800 in Coeymans (Albany) NY with (22010 221110 {11}. (Son-in-law) Abednigo Ricketson is found in Peru, NY for 1800 with (202 22010) along with William Banker with (20101 21010) {12}.

      The Bible of Jonathan Wooster gives the birth date of Elizabeth Davis, and of her son Jonathan Soule {13}. Jonathan Soule is linked to sisters Ruth and Martha {14}. [Daugnter Martha's marriage certificate in 1833 gives her parents" Benjamin and Elizabeth {15}. {Grandson Benjamin Soule and Susannah removed from Duanesburg, Ny MM to Rensselaersville, MM NY. about 30 8 months 1817 and returned to Duanesburg MM 23 Oct 1835 {16}.

      A joint deed dated 1808 names George Soule, Hannah Soule and Anna Soule, with the land being bounded on one side by that of George Soule {17}. Brothers Jonathan, George and Isaac Soule are supposed to have removed to Duanesburg, NY together {18}, although Isaac is probably son of Jonathan.

      Rechel Sole (wife of George) requests 25 1 mo 1809 to be taken into Coeymans MM along with daughter Sarah and Elizabeth {19}. Jonathan Soule was appointed 25 g mo 1830 as one of four representatives from Duanesburgh MM to the Quarterly Meeting {20}.

      (Son?) Joseph Soule enlisted 1 Aug 1776 as Sgt. ag 25 yr. in Capt. Pearce's Minute Man Company; he was 6' tall, pale complexion, with light hair and eyes (b. Dutchess Co., ) {21.}. (Son?) Howland is listed as dead 4 Aug 1777 in a Loyalist muster roll of Capt William Gray's Company {22} Jonathan Lapham is found for 1790 in Washington (Dutchess) NY with (5,3, 8) next to David Lapham with (1,2,1) {p. 94a}.

      Did Benjamin Soule also see Loyalist service and perhaps death in the American Revolution about 1779 {23}? Possibly in Plainfield, CT. "about March 1779 as "Capt. Soal" with "a Consumption" (2).

      NOTE: A letter dated 28 Dec 1948 to Lt. Col., Soule provided information on one Benjamin Soule and his wife Elizabeth Davis. It would appear Soule researchers from that time assumed this Benjamin Soule was identical with Benjamin Soule, son of George {see Family #521}, who m. Abigail Howland, and so assumed two wives for on Benjamin Soule. Since both Benjamin Soule's had children born in 1761, they have to be separate persons.
