Reuben Rockwell (b. c1779) of Ridgefield, CT, and North Salem, Galway, and Enfield, NY [R77 in the 1st edition, R76 in the 2nd edition]:

Shortly after I went to print with the first edition, I found a record with important details on the identity of Reuben's wife. It was a Ridgefield land record, from Deed Book 9, folio 43 (FHL Film #5500). On 13 April 1804, Reuben and Urania Rockwell, for $125, quit-claimed to Benjamin Barberry all right, title, etc. that they might have in a piece of land "that our honored grandfather Benjamin Stebbins of Ridgefield gave to our mother Elizabeth by deed of gift to her... and also to one certain tract of land which our said mother by the name of Elizabeth Barberry obtained of Nathaniel Keeler of North Salem..." Those two deeds may be found in Ridgefield Deed Book 8, folios 142 and 156. (FHL Film #5499)

So what Boughton heard, that Reuben married "a Stebbins" was incorrect, but not by far; rather his wife was Urania, daughter of Elizabeth (Stebbins) Barberry. Elizabeth's husband was Benjamin--probably the same one to whom they quit-claimed. I suppose this to mean that Urania's mother had recently died.

This record also confirms my conclusion that Reuben Rockwell of Ridgefield is the one who ended up in Enfield, Tompkins Co., N.Y., since Urania's name appears on a headstone there from her death in 1829.

I happily entered details on the above into my master file, so that when I printed the second edition in the fall of 2007, it identified Reuben's wife as Urania Barberry. Unfortunately, I should have dug a little deeper, and I would have found that her mother, born Elizabeth Stebbins, was married twice. Her first husband, Josiah Keeler, was the actual father of Urania, and her birth (on 7 April 1772) is recorded in Ridgefield's vital records. Josiah Keeler (b. in June of 1741) died between 1 Jan. 1776 and 2 Feb. 1778, when his father Isaac Keeler made his will. Elizabeth (Stebbins) Keeler married, second, Benjamin Barberry on 3 Sept. 1786 at Ridgefield. They had one child, Ira, born 9 Dec. 1786. She died in Ridgefield on 28 Oct. 1799, in her 54th year, and was buried in Titicus Cemetery. Reuben and Urania's quit-claim deed of 1804 transfers title of Elizabeth's land to her widower, Benjamin Barberry.

Urania (Keeler) Rockwell had a brother named Josiah, and he settled at Galway, Saratoga County, N.Y. by 1804. He may have played a role in the decision of Reuben and Urania to move to that location before 1810.
