===================Satterlee-ly-ley Surname DNA project

Satterlee-ly-ley Surname DNA project
« on: Mar 1st, 2009, 11:31am »
Dr. Chip Satterly is looking for some assistance.

His request:

If you are aware of any living and  KNOWN descendants of Benedict or William that are keenly interested in Satterlee-ly-ley family history and genealogy, I would like to contact them.

I already have two volunteers from the Nicholas line.

I have set up a site through Family Tree DNA that can be accessed easily and outlines our background and project goals.

http://www.familytreedna.com/public/Satterly-lee-leySurnameDNAProject/default.aspx

Katie Jaques and others have suspected for a long time that Goldie’s Nicholas of R.I.,  Benedict of Connecticut and William of L.I. may not all have been sons  of William, the Vicar of St. Ide in Exeter, Devon, England. Were they even half-brothers??

Also, there are many “disconnected” Satterlee-ly-ley families who would like to know more about their historical and genealogic connections.

I am hoping that the Satterlee-ly-ley Surname DNA project will help shed some scientific light on our historic and genealogic  origins.

Hi everyone,

My name’s Chris Satterley and a managed to stumble on this site by the virtue of some casual web-browsing.

I’m from the UK, but am travelling New Zealand at the moment after graduating from St Andrews University in Scotland.

There’s a few of us Satterleys in Lancaster I’d be pleased to hear of other locations for our ‘relatives’.

Weird as it is David I think we were on the losing side of the war of the roses, as although I am a Lancashire Lad born and raised, my great grandfather Francis was a Yorkshire man.

I think there is a town in Devonshire called ‘Satterleigh’, but I’m not sure.

thanks for the reply Chris , as far as I know a Rev . William  Satterlee  crossed the pond around 1715 or so , settled in New England .  Then a hundred years or so later they all moved to Michigan which is where I’m from .  Do you know what the conflict { war of the roses) was all about?   Good chatting with you – David

Hello,

I’m Jeff Satterlee of Romulus Michigan.  My sign-on is Vicatoa, which I share with my wife Victoria.  I too stumbled on this website in researching geneology regarding the Satterlee name.  I must say I am rather overwhelmed by the amount of information regarding the Satterlee surname and how far back it has been researched.  It is a pleasant surprise.

Hello David,

Yes, Romulus is outside Detroit.  I live right near the Detroit Metro Airport.  Off the top of my head, I do not know any relatives in the Fowlerville or Lansing area, but it is certainly possible.  It is my intention to start putting some of these puzzle pieces together to determine items such as these and build a family tree.  My parents were Ebert and Elizabeth Satterlee of Romulus, MI.  I believe our Satterlee family has been in the Romulus/ Dearborn / Detroit  areas for close to the last 80 plus years.

Good chatting with you.  Keep in touch.

I am a Satterlee from New York.  My whole family is here from the Utica area.  I am from the capitol area and I went to school with a Satterlee that I am not related to.  There are so many out there.  In a way we are all related.  Send me an email to chat.  I have also made a contribution to this site during my research.

That’s funny…I was actually going to edit my post today because I meant New York Mills and not Yorkville.  My grandmother lived in Yorkville and I inexplicably switch the two all the time.  My grandfather’s brother, Norman lived on New Hartford Street.

I just talked to my father.  Your aunt (Jean) is my father’s first cousin.  Who is your father?

Wow, Steve, what a surprise to find a Satterlee-ley who came RECENTLY from Devon!

The Satterlee lines that were researched from the 1960s to the 1990s by Goldie Satterlee Moffatt Fowler are descended from the Rev. William Satterlee, b. 1610, who was the vicar at Ide in Devon.  Four of his sons emigrated to the colonies between the 1650s and the 1680s.  They settled in Rhode Island, New York and Connecticut.

Goldie traced the Rev. William’s descent back to the Sotterly manor in Suffolk, which goes back at least to 1066 since it is listed in the Domesday Book.  It was granted by Henry III to Phillip Bocland in the 1200s.  You can read all about it if you click on the “History” link on the left-hand side and then on “A Brief History of Satterlee-ley-ly Families in England.”

The Rev. William had other sons who stayed in England.  It’s entirely possible that your father is descended from one of them.

hi all, doing family research myself my grandma was a satterly and she was born in ide devon my dad did research with his brother about 15/20 years ago and found out that william was the vicar of st ida’s church in ide but found out that he was defrocked? so my dad just assumed he must have done something naughty ie commited adultery and so was expelled friom the church.
it wasnt until i stumbled upon your site that i found out the real reason it is so fascinating to find out your ancestors were sirs etc, there was a family bible with a lot of the information in it but as to where it went my dad is unsure but would love to hear from anyone who has more information

In Goldie Satterlee Moffatt Fowler’s Satterlee/ley/ly Genealogy, Vol. I (1971), p. 92:

“C-8 William fought in the Revolutionary War and was injured by a shot from an Indian, while hiding behind a hemlock log in the north of Vermont.  His house with wife Eunice (Clark) and eight children was a constant rendezvous for the soldiers of the Army.”

Unfortunately Goldie does not tell us the source of this information.

That’s all I have about his Revolutionary War service.

I’m a descendant of Helen Satterlee (daughter of James Satterlee & Theodosia Wells) born 31 Dec. 1816 & died 18 June 1885. She married Albert James Hovey & they had 5 children. My relative is Albert Hovey (born 1 Apr. 1841 & died 5 Mar. 1925) who married Eleanor Dally. After a family dispute, Albert changed his name to Albert Price, a neighbor’s surname.  I’m related to their daughter Augusta “Price” who married William Powell in Elmhurst, NY. I have originals of letters sent by Helen Satterlee & some Belgian lace that belonged to Theodosia Wells. Does anyone know about this line?

Yes, Helen was a descendant of Benedict Satterlee (1657-168, who was one of the four sons of the Rev. William Satterlee who migrated to the colonies from Devonshire in the mid-1600’s.  Benedict was the youngest of the brothers and was a sea captain who traded between England and the colonies for years before marrying a widow, Mrs. Rebecca Bemis Dymond, and settling down near Gales Ferry, CT in 1682.

Benedict and Rebecca had a son named William (I), 1683-1711, who married Anne Avery.  They lived at New London, CT.  One of their 11 children was Benedict (II), 1714-1638, who was m. #1 to Elizabeth Crary and #2 to Rachel Park(es).

Benedict (II) and Elizabeth Crary had 6 children, including William (II), 1740-1799, who married Hannah Sherwood.  (Benedict had 7 more children with his second wife, Rachel Park(es)).

William (II) and Hannah had 9 children, including Judge James Satterlee, 1777-?), who married Theodosia Wells.  Helen was one of their daughters, b. 13 Dec 1816 at Lyons, Wayne Co., NY, m. 2 Sep 1835 to Albert James Hovey.  A note says that Albert James and Helen moved to Chicago in 1864.

Helen and Albert Hovey had 5 children, including Albert Price.

All of the above information comes from Goldie Satterlee Moffatt Fowler’s Satterlee-ley-ly Genealogy, Vol. IV (Benedict & William).  Goldie thought Price was Albert’s middle name.

BTW, this post is not from joesatt, although it looks that way.  It’s from Katie Jaques.  I just happen to be sitting in joesatt’s house, using joesatt’s computer!  You can reach me at katiej_1958@nullyahoo.com.

===================Looking for descendents of Alpheus Lamphere

Looking for descendents of Alpheus Lamphere
« on: Jun 24th, 2004, 9:54pm »
Hello-

I  am trying to trace the descendents of Alpheus Lamphere and Hannah Lamphere.  Your site shows that they had a child named Hannah Lamphere, and from records I have read on the internet, it appears that there was a child named Alpheus Jr.  who married a Bathsheba.

I am wondering if you have any information regarding this Alpheus Jr. and his posterity?  Anything you can share would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to find my gggg grandfather’s (Squire Lamphere) mother and father.  There is no record, so far, of his parentage so I am doing a process of elimination to try to figure it out.  The Alpheus Lamphere’s would be contemporaries of him and are buried in the same area where Squire resided – Alpheus Jr. would have been the right age to be Squire’s father.

Thanks!

Nathan Lamphere

Well now I have found some more info – it appears that in several instances they were named Alpheus and Hannah Lanphere

From this website: http://www.rootsweb.com/~nychauta/CEMETERY/Sripley.html

LANPHERE,  Asa Clark, died July 11 1909 age 77-9-3 Father, Alpheus,
Mother, Bathsheba

from this website: http://fp.enter.net/~mkuhn/b202.htm

Elizabeth Elira LANPHERE was born on 5 Feb 1827 in Hoosic, Rensselear Co., NY.7 S. Ripley Cemetery Book has Elizabeth’s birth as Nov 1, 1823. She died on 11 Feb 1892.7 She was buried on 14 Feb 1892 in S. Ripley Cemetery, Ripley, Chautauqua Co., NY.7 Parents: ALPHEAUS LANPHERE II and BATHSHEBA WALWORTH.
Spouse: Thomas B. HOUGHTON. Thomas B. HOUGHTON and Elizabeth Elira LANPHERE were married on 5 Feb 1843.7 Children were: Olive HOUGHTON, Franklin Jerome HOUGHTON, Henry R. HOUGHTON, Ellen J. (Nellie) HOUGHTON, Jennie Jane HOUGHTON, Lena HOUGHTON.

Spouse: Dewitt CARRIS. Dewitt CARRIS and Elizabeth Elira LANPHERE were married after 1862.7,129

And WOW – here this might be great for you all!  Check out: http://fp.enter.net/~mkuhn/b200.htm#P3010

Hannah Satterlee is spelled Satterly here, but has all of their children, plus links to each one.  Here is the copy of it:

ALPHEAUS LANPHERE Sr. was born on 4 May 1771 in Westerly, Washington Co., RI.7,1154 He died on 9 Apr 1850.7 He was buried on 11 Apr 1850 in Salisbury, NY.1154 Parents: NATHAN LANPHERE JR. and AMY CRANDELL.
Spouse: HANNAH SATTERLY. ALPHEAUS LANPHERE Sr. and HANNAH SATTERLY were married in 1793.7 Children were: Hannah LANPHERE, ALPHEAUS LANPHERE II, Armatus LANPHERE, Cynthia LANPHERE, Isaac Merrit LANPHERE, Rebecca LANPHERE, Daniel LANPHERE, Louisa LANPHERE, Betsey LANPHERE.

———————————————————————— ——–
ALPHEAUS LANPHERE II1167 was born on 13 Apr 1796 in CT.7 World Family Tree has Alpheus as being born in NY. He died on 17 Nov 1852.7 Parents: Nathan LANPHERE and Amy ERANDELL. Parents: ALPHEAUS LANPHERE Sr. and HANNAH SATTERLY.
Spouse: BATHSHEBA WALWORTH. ALPHEAUS LANPHERE II and BATHSHEBA WALWORTH were married in 1820 in Hoosic, Rensselear Co., NY.7 Children were: Asa Clark LANPHERE, Permelia LANPHERE, James Irwin LANPHERE, William Henry LANPHERE, Elizabeth Elira LANPHERE, Joshua Prentis LANPHERE, ASA CLARK LANPHERE, Mary Antonet LANPHERE.

Spouse: Margaret TANNER. ALPHEAUS LANPHERE II and Margaret TANNER were married in 1841 in Cornish, NY.7 Children were: Sharlot Adelia LANPHERE

Well, this looks like it eliminates the Alpheus Lamphere family being related to Squire at this point.  Hope my searching helps you all!

Sincerely,
Nathan Lamphere

Hi, Nathan,

Yes, thank you, you have added to the information we had in Goldie Satterlee Moffatt Fowler’s books.  We know that Hannah Satterly was b. 1776 at Westerly, RI, the daughter of John (II) Satterly and Hannah Hyde, and that she was m. 1793 to Alpheus Lanphere.  The Lanphere/Lampheres and Satterlee/Satterlys were members of the Seventh-Day Baptist congregation at Westerly, which Hannah’s great-grandfather, Nicholas Satterlee, joined as an immigrant from Devonshire in 1669.  There were several other intermarriages between the two families; in fact, Hannah’s grandmother was a Lamphere.  It is possible that Hannah and Alpheus were some degree of cousins.

Goldie did not have any information about the children or grandchildren of Hannah and Alpheus, so we thank you for that!

Hello. My name is Raymond Satterley III, and I live in Louisville, Kentucky. I have only recently begun to ponder about my familys’ origins. I have only made it as far back as the late 1890’s – early 1900’s in my own searches (this is when my Family came to Kentucky) I stumbled across your website and wondered if there might be a relation to my Family. If there is any help or advice anyone can give me to aid in my research, It would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Hi folks,
Congratulations on such an interesting and informative site.
I am a descendant of John Satterley, of Ide, near Exeter, Devon.  John was born in 1821.
Having seen Satterleys on your site who had lived in this small village many years before that, I was wondering if anyone had traced the line down to more recent times?
If anyone has any more information, I would be delighted to hear from them.

Hi, Dorothy,

Alas, I don’t have any information on the descendants of our progenitor, the Rev. William Satterlee/ley, who remained in England.  As you know if you have read the historical material on this site, he was the vicar at Ide in the 1600s.  Four of his sons emigrated to the colonies, and we have quite a lot of information about their descendants, but he had other sons who stayed in England.  It does seem likely that there is a connection, based on geography if nothing else, but one would probably have to go to England to research it.

The Rev. William was b. 1610 at Silferton, Devon Co.  He was imprisoned by Cromwell but was restored to his vicarage at Ide at the Restoration of Charles II.  After that, however, it is reported that he got a little too friendly with some of the ladies of the parish, and was forced to retire to Dorset, where he died in 1678.  I believe he is buried there.

I know of two sons who did not emigrate to the colonies; there may have been more.  One was Richard, who matriculated at Wadham College, Oxford 18 Mar 1665, at the age of 18, so we figure he was b. 1647.  Another was Giles, matriculated at Exeter College, Oxford 1 Mar 1671 at the age of 16, so b. 1655.  Giles received a B.A. degree at St. Mary’s Hall 8 Mar 1675, and was the vicar at Cornworthy, Devon, in 1682.  I have no information about any descendants of either of them.

I just started really researching SATTERLEE.    What I have is: John Abram Satterlee married Nancy Jane Hager in Kansas. After her death in 1901, he went to Washington and remarried.
What I found was that his parents were Abram Satterlee and Susan Frances Demarest.
His children with Nancy Jane were: Willard/George/Beula/Sherman/Alice/Fredrick
If any of these names sounds familiar, let me know. I
am looking for living decendents.

This is for Jon (I answered Grace’s questions on the GenForum Satterlee board).

I have actually done a little research on your family, with uncertain results, alas.  But I can give you some information about your own and your father’s generations, which may lead you to some cousins.   This information is from Goldie Satterlee Moffatt Fowler’s Satterlee-ley-ly Genealogies, Vol. II (1972), p. 59-61.  To help keep the generations straight, I’ll use Goldie’s alphanumeric system, whereby a letter designates the generation (starting with the immigrant generation, Nicholas, as A) and the number designates the order of birth in the family, as far as that is known.

Your great-grandfather, John Nelson Satterlee, was b. 8 Apr 1878 at Wiota, Lafayette County, Wis., and d. 18 Nov 1940 at Gratiot, Lafayette Co., Wis.  He was m. 31 Jan 1900 at Gratiot to Anna J. Granshirt, who was b. at Gratiot 31 Jan 1877, d/o Stephen Herman Granshirt and Rose (Bosch).  John Nelson is designated G-3 by Goldie, but actually he was the youngest of six children himself; he had two older brothers, whom Goldie identified, but also three older sisters who are not “in the book.”  I verified the sisters by researching Lafayette County records in the summer of 2003.

So we’ll call him G-6.  G-6 John Nelson and Anna had six children, including your grandfather, Harry Steven Satterlee:

H-1  Cathryn Emmarilla, b. 18 Nov 1900 at Gratiot  She was m. 19 Dec 1922 to Ralph Wm. Munger, b. 8 Apr 1893 in Chicago, s/o William A. Munger and Caroline Cecelia (Eggert).  They had three children:

i-1  John Willliam Munger  b. 23 Jun 1925 at Gratiot
i-2  Dorothy Cecelia Munger, b. 22 Sep 1928 at Gratiot, m. Norman D. Hubner
i-3  Ralph Arthur Munger, b. 12 Nov 1931

H-2  Arthur James Satterlee was b. 4 Jan 1903 at Wiota, m. 28 Feb 1924 at Gratiot to Harriet L. Burmeister, b. 24 Mar 1905 at Gratiot, d/o Jonas John Burmeister and Hilda Elizabeth (Doring).  They had five children:

I-1  Paul Nelson Satterlee, b. 4 Feb 1926 in Wisconsin, m. Sep 1949 at Leland, Ill. to Florence Hoadley, b. 31 Oct 1930 at Leland, Ill., d/o Lawrence Hoadley and Ora (Bend).  They had four children, who would be your second cousins:

J-1  Paul Michael Satterlee, b. 22 Dec 1951 at Sandwich, Ill.
J-2  Patricia Ann Satterlee, b. 22 Dec 1953 at Sandwich, Ill.
J-3  John William Satterlee, b. 24 Oct 1955 at Sandwich, Ill.
J-4  Susan Kay Satterlee, b. 4 Oct 1957 at Rockford, Ill.

I-2  Beverly Ann Satterlee, b. 26 Oct 1928 at Gratiot., m. 24 Nov 1951 at Gratiot to Wm. Dougherty, b. 1 Sep 1925 at Freeport, Ill., s/o William Dougherty and Lauretta (?).  They had no children as of 1971.

I-3  Rev. John Arthur Satterlee, b. 9 Apr 1931, ordained Roman Catholic priest at Madison, Wis. in 1963.  My cousin John Orvar Satterlee, who lives in Ft. Atkinson, Wis., visited the Rev. John Arthur a number of years ago; he was living in Wiota or Gratiot, I forget which, at the time.

I-4  Phillip LeRoy Satterlee, b. 7 Apr 1937 at Gratiot., m. 8 Apr 1960 at Earlville, Ill.  to Joan Hanow, b. 22 Jan 1940 at Waterman, Ill., d/o John Hanow and Ora (Bend).  Joan Hanow and Florence Hoadley (who married I-1 Paul Nelson Satterlee) were half-sisters.  Phillip and Joan had three children, more second cousins to you, all b. at Rockford, Ill:

J-1  Jacquelin Joan Satterlee, b. 22 Jan 1961
J-2  Philip James Satterlee, b. 17 Jan 1962
J-3  Sharon Ann Satterlee, b. 23 May 1963

I-5  Robert James Satterlee, b. 13 Jan 1943 at Monroe, Wis., m. 5 Sep 1960 at  to Ilona Ihm, b. 11 Jul 1944 at Frankfurt, Germany, d/o Charles Ihm and Gerta (?).  They had four children:

J-1  Lana Marie Satterlee, b. 5 Mar 1961 at Darlington, Wis.
J-2  William Patrick Satterlee, b. 13 Feb 1962 at Rockford, Ill.
J-3  Thomas Edward Satterlee, b. 20 May 1963 at Rockford, Ill.
J-4  Robert Anthony Satterlee, b. 18 May 1964 at Rockford, Ill.

H-4  Harry Steven Satterlee (your grandfather), b. 4 Oct 1909 at Hazel Green, Wis., m. 5 Feb 1929 at St. Joseph, Mo. to Mary Whalen, b. 26 Aug 1911, d. Dec 2004 (thanks for the information), d/o Thomas Whalen and Jeannette (Uren).  They had one child, your father:

I-1  James Nelson Satterlee, b. 7 Nov 1929, d. 1996.  Goldie’s note says he was single in 1969, so she had no data on his marriage or on your generation.

… I had to split this up because the post was too long.

H-5  Agnes Satterlee, b 18 Sep 1911 at Hazel Green, Wis., d. 15 Jul 1938 at Hazel Green, m. 24 Sep ? at Gratiot to Daniel Curran.  They had three children:

i-1  Bonita Curran, b. 22 Nov 1930, m. Aug 1952 to Spencer Okerland
i-2  James Curren, b. 18 Nov 1932, m. 31 Apr 1956 to Anna Silver
i-3  John R., b. 2 Jan 1936, m. 31 Jul 1956 to Janice Edwards

H-6  Harold John Satterlee, b. 26 Mar 1916 at Hazel Green, m. 13 Mar 1942 at San Diego, Calif to Virginia Dage, b. 30 Jan 1925 at Chicago, Ill., d/o Val Dage and Mary (Pillon).  They had four children:

I-1  Larry John Satterlee, b. 19 Mar 1946 at Freeport, Ill., m. 30 Oct 1965 at Richland Center, Wis. to Rita Maria Slaback, b. 23 Dec 1946 at Richland Center, d/o Merlin Loyd Slaback and Doris (Deckert).  They had one child:

J-1  Dawn Marie Satterlee, b. 11 Mar 1969 at San Diego, Calif.

I-2  Cheryl Ann Satterlee, b. 26 Oct 1947 at Rockford, Ill., m. 27 Sep 1969 at Richland Center, Wis. to Rodney Davenport; no children as of 1972.

I-3  Gordon Douglas Satterlee, b. 12 Mar 1955 at Hawthorne, Nev., single in 1971

I-4  Frederick Scott, b. 12 Mar 1955 at Hawthorne, Nev., single in 1971

Continued …Since you seem to be mainly interested in finding or at least identifying living relatives, the foregoing may be all the information you really need.  A good thing, too, because when I go back beyond G-6 John Nelson things get murky.  His father was also F-? John Nelson Satterlee, who died at Wiota on February 24, 1891.  He left his widow, Catherine Nicholson Satterlee, and six children, including G-6 John Nelson.   But I have not been able to identify F-? John Nelson’s parentage.  Goldie thought he was F-6 Nelson L. Satterlee, who was b. at Monroe in 1844 and was the s/o Willliam Irving and Mary Ann (Nobles) Satterlee.  But Nelson L. was WAY too young to be the father of G-6 John Nelson’s older sisters, and anyway, he moved to Iowa with his parents by 1870 and was still living with them there, unmarried, in 1880, according to the census.

I believe my cousin John understood from Father John Arthur Satterlee that there was a split in the family because an ancestor had married a Catholic.  I suspect the Catholic spouse was Catherine Nicholson, and it is entirely possible that F-? John Nelson was written out of the family because of his marriage.  Hard to see how he could have been written out of the census records, though!  So I am mystified as to his parents.  For sure, William Irving and Mary Ann (Nobles) Satterlee settled in Lafayette County, and most of their children were born there.

If you want more detail going back, I can give you that.  However, there is a missing link.  I’m reasonably certain, though, that F-? John Nelson is connected in some way with William Irving Satterlee’s family, either a son or a nephew.  William Irving had a bunch of brothers and sisters, including my great-great-grandfather Ossian Satterlee, and a lot of them settled in northwestern Illinois and southwestern Wisconsin in the 1850’s.  Two daughters of William Irving’s youngest brother, Zenas, married Rice cousins in the 1870’s, and their descendants have an annual Satterlee/Rice family reunion near Stockton, Ill. every June.  I think this year it is scheduled for June 10.  If you are interested in attending, or at least getting in touch with that branch of the Satterlees, I can probably get you the information.

===================Ezra Satterlee’s line

Ezra Satterlee’s line
« on: Jul 12th, 2006, 6:00pm »
Hello! Just wanted to say hi to everyone on this forum.  I just found the Satterlee website today, and I think it’s wonderful!

I am wondering though, why Ezra Satterlee is not listed among the other names here, as one of the sons of Ethan Grant Satterlee? Ezra’s is the line I descend from.

Ezra married Adeline Demorest, and then here is my line:  their daughter ELMA SATTERLEE & her husband George F. Rice > their son ARTHUR F. RICE & his wife Mary Holbert “Holly” Taylor > their daughter DOROTHY MARY RICE & her husband Archie B. Fugate > their daughter GRACE MARY FUGATE & her husband Joseph E. Andrews > and me and my siblings.

So even though I am 4-5 generations removed from the Satterlee name, I’m still an avid fan of the Satterlee history, and want to find out all I can about them.

Anyone else descended from Ezra?

Well, I can’t explain why Ethan Grant, Jr. is the only one of Ethan Grant Satterlee’s children who shows up in the database here.  Ethan Grant and Anna Luce Satterlee had 11 children, of whom Ezra fell about in the middle.

Goldie Satterlee Moffatt Fowler, who spent 40 years researching the Satterlee genealogy, was a granddaughter of Abram Isaac Satterlee, 1829-1855, who was a younger brother of Ezra’s.

I don’t recall seeing any other descendants of Ezra on the Satterlee boards at Ancestry or GenForum, but I’ll keep a lookout.

Hm.  It’s an even smaller world than we think.  I just did a search on “Ezra” on the GenForum Satterlee forum, and found an exchange between you and me a couple of years ago.  I was so pleased that I had found an Ezra connection for you — until I came back here and realized that you and my GenForum correspondent were one and the same!  I was about to e-mail you your own e-mail address <G>.

Have you been in touch with Emma Powell?  She is an Ezra descendant who has posted on the Ancestry.com Satterlee board.  I can e-mail you her address if you like, though I can’t guarantee that it is current.

Hey, my name is Jessie Satterlee, daughter of William S. Satterlee, son of Jack Satterlee and Virginia Satterlee. I don’t know if anyone knows anything about us or even if we’re related to anyone here. All I know is that my dad once had a complete geneology report done (it was destroyed during the Northridge ’94 earthquake) and it said that we are decendants of William the Conqueror. Is that the case for most Satterlees? My dad told me earlier this week that his sister Lynn Cauble might have a copy of the geneology report. I’ve been really excited about this and hope that I can go search her house for it soon!
Anyways I mostly just wanted to know if we “William the Conqueror” Satterlees are related to anyone here.
Thanks,

My family is from the Los Angeles/San Diego area (currently in La Jolla), so I know there are a handful of Satterlees in California! My grandfather, Harold Satterlee was from Minnesota before relocating to the LA area. My dad is Kenneth and my aunt is Virginia (Ginny). We still have the geneaology books from Goldie and I as I recall we too have  descended from William the Conqueror. Feel free to e-mail me and we can figure out if we’re related.

Thanks for info on Satterlees from Wash. County.  My Father was George Hayes Satterlee, born 1899.  His Father Geroge E. Satterlee died around 1917.  I remeber a Satterlee fire station in I believe Ft. Edward and I know they were some how related to my Dad.

I realize you are looking for info from farther back, but our family lived in Mechanicville, NY in the 70’s and early 80’s.  Weird, huh?  I had no idea some of our family lived there in generations past…

I am from Albany, NY originally.  Most of my family is in Utica area with some here.  I went to highschool with a Satterlee that I wasnt related to.  In a way we are all related.    But I am doing more research.  I am trying to connect my line.  I have a bit of a gap as to a certain person and I cant find him.  But if anyone wants to chat let me know.

To “Boats”:

According to Goldie Satterlee Moffatt Fowler’s work (Vol. III), your line descends from Nicholas Satterlee, one of the four sons of the Rev. William Satterlee who emigrated from Devon to America in the 1600’s.  Nicholas was b. c. 1649 and settled in Westerly, Rhode Island in 1669, where he joined a Seventh-Day Baptist congregation.  Fortunately for all of us in the Nicholas line, late in life he finally got around to having three children, Penelope (b. 169, John (b. 1701), and Mary (b. 1703).  Those who carry the Satterlee name down this line are descended from John.

Unlike his father, John (I) (1701-175 was quite prolific; he was married twice, to two Lamphere cousins, Experience and Amey, and had at least 10 children.  His son Sylvester (I) (1752-1825) married Bethany Coon in 1773.  Sometime between 1774 and 1777 they moved to Washington County, NY, in the Little Hoosick River valley, and established a homestead about a mile and a half south of Greenwich, NY (the locals pronounce it Green-Witch, not Grenitch, as I learned when I visited there last year).  At about the same time, before, during and right after the Revolution, a considerable number of the SDB congregation from Westerly, RI migrated to the Little Hoosick River valley, including Sylvester’s brothers Gideon (my gggggf) and William, who became the first full-time pastor of the SDB church at Berlin, NY (which is alive and well today and counts some descendants of the original settlers among its congregation).  Sylvester (I) joined the 13th Regiment, Albany Co. Militia in the Revolution.

Sylvester (I) and Bethany had 9 children.  Their son, Joel (I), was b. at Greenwich NY on 7/4/1782 and married Esther Young in 1805.  They had 6 children, and moved to Nunda, Livingston Co., NY in 1819, when the youngest (Leroy) was less than a year old.  Joel’s brother Sylvester (II) (1773-1864) and his sister Amy and her husband, Asa Heath, also moved to Nunda about that time.  Joel (I) and Esther had 6 children. Joel (I) died in 1856 and Esther in 1876, both at Nunda.

Joel (I) and Esther’s son Joel (II) was b. in 1806 in Washington Co., NY and moved to Nunda with his parents.  He married Phoebie Velie and they had the 7 children you listed.  Joel (II) died in 1862 and is buried in the Oakwood Cemetery at Nunda.  Their son Leroy (your gggf) was born in 1846 at Nunda and migrated to Michigan, evidently before 1868, because that is when he married Amanda Ferguson at Jackson, MI.  Phoebe evidently went with them, because she died in Michigan in 1895.

Leroy’s brother George was b. 1842 and enlisted in the Civil War (Co. A, 104th Reg., NYS volunteers) in 1861.  He was captured in action at Weldon Railroad, VA and died while a POW at Salisbury, NC in 1865.

To “Warren”:

Your line probably descends from George B. Satterlee, who was known as Sig Sautelle (Sawtelle).  He and his wife ran a circus.  I’ll have to dig back through some old posts to the GenForum Satterlee board to find the research, but I think I figured out a couple of years ago where Sig Sautelle fit into Goldie’s genealogy.

To “Warren”:

I found your line in Goldie’s Vol. IV, p. 64.  The George Satterlee who she became convinced was “Sig Sautelle,” the circus man, is indeed in your line.  However, I’m not so sure your George is the circus man.  Nevertheless, I can give you your line of descent back to the immigrant ancestor, Benedict.

To help keep things straight I’ll use Goldie’s alphanumeric system of identifying generations, where A is the immigrant generation, and the number signifies the order of birth in each family.  Benedict is A-6.

A-6 Benedict was one of the sons of the Rev. William Satterlee of Devon who emigrated to the colonies in the 1600’s.  He was the youngest emigrant, b. 1657, and was a sea captain trading between England the colonies until 1682, when he married a widow, Mrs. Rebecca Bemas Dymond, and settled near Gales Ferry, New London Co., CT.  He died in 1688.  His ggggg granddaughter, H-2 Alice Satterlee, in 1969 was living on property he bought in 1685 at Gales Ferry.

Benedict adopted Rebecca’s two daughters by John Dymond, and he and Rebecca had two sons, B-3 William (I) (1683-1733) and B-4 Elisha (b. 1684).  Goldie had no further information about Elisha, but William (I)’s descent is fairly complete.

Most of the famous Satterlees descend from this line, including G-2 Henry Yates Satterlee (1843-1866), the first bishop of the National Cathedral in Washington, DC, and G-2 Herbert Livingston Satterlee (1863-1947), who was J. P. Morgan’s private secretary and married Morgan’s daughter Louisa.  Captain Charles Satterlee (1875-1918), commander of the U.S.S. Tampa which was sunk by a German submarine off the coast of England in 1918 and for whom two successive U.S. destroyers were named, was also a descendant of Benedict’s son William (I).

William (I) married Anne Avery (1694-1754) in 1711 in Connecticut, and they had 11 children.  After William (I)’s death, Anne married Judge John Crary (1686-1759), who was the executor of William’s estate.  William (I) and Anne’s son, C-2 Benedict (II)(1714-1778), married Elizabeth Crary (b. 1717), who was a daughter of Judge John Crary’s from his previous marriage.

Benedict (II) and Elizabeth were married in 1738 and had 6 children.  Benedict (II) was married a second time, in 1757, to Rachel Park (1730-1771).

Benedict (II) and Elizabeth’s son, D-4 Samuel (1744-1831), married Prudence Rathbone (1757-1827) in 1774.  They evidently moved to Saratoga County, NY sometime between 1777 and 1780.  They had 12 children, all but the first two born in Saratoga County, NY.  Henry Yates Satterlee was Samuel and Prudence’s great-grandson, through their son E-3 Edward Rathbone (1780-1860).  Herbert Livingston Satterlee was also a great-grandson, through their son E-11 George Crary (1799-1872).  So Henry Yates and Herbert Livingston were second cousins, and they knew each other.

Samuel and Prudence’s son, E-6 William Henry (1788-1846), married Ruth “Lucy” Cady (1790-1852) in 1810.  William Henry and Lucy had 4 children, all born in Saratoga County.

William Henry and Lucy’s son, F-4 George (I) W., was b. 1820 at Burnt Hills, Saratoga County, and d. at Ft. Edward, Washington Co., NY.  George (I) W. married Mary Jane Davidson, b. 1820, in 1842 in Saratoga County.  They had 4 children, including G-3 George (II) W. (or B., or C. <G>) (1847-1892).

…Continued from last post …

George (II) is referred to in an 1894 history of Washington County as George W. Jr.  His tombstone in the Ft. Edward cemetery says George C.  And “Sig Sautelle”‘s middle initial is said to have been B.  Goldie was convinced that George (II) was the circus man.  However, I have been in touch with a Nicholas-line descendant, Sheryl Satterlee Bechtold, who says that Sig Sautelle was her gg-uncle.  And, indeed, there is a George B. in that line who would fit in both dates and general geography.  So I am not as sure as Goldie was that your George is the circus man.

Anyway, circus man or not, George (II) married Jeannie “Jane” L. Thomas (1849-1926).  They are both buried in the Ft. Edward cemetery.  He was married a second time, to Ida Belle Travers, who also is buried there.

G-3 George (II) and Jane had 3 children.  Their son, H-1 George (III) E. “Thomas” (1872-1920), married Mary Sheehan (b. 1872) in the 1890’sincluding a set of twins, I-1 Marie E. and I-2 George (IV) Hayes, b. 4 Mar. 1898 at Schagticoke, Rensselaer Co., NY.

I-1 Marie E. married Herbert W. Gardner at Mechanicville, NY on 1 Jun 1920.  In 1969 she wrote to Goldie that her father had always said his parents worked with a circus and that he was born on the road.  She said her father had no brothers or sisters, but the 1880 census shows two younger sisters, Louise Josephine and Helen Barbara.  Marie thought the George C. Satterlee who is buried in Hudson Falls (Ft. Edward??  right up the road) might have been her grandfather and might be Sig Sautelle.  But she did not know for sure.

I-2 George (IV) Hayes was married twice, to Ethel Mae Sparks (d 1935, b. Hudson View Cemetery, Mechanicville) and to Angiela Durante (no other info).  George (IV) Hayes and Ethel Mae had four children, according to Goldie.  Now we are getting down into what I think must be your generation, or your parents’.  Goldie shows the following:

J-1  William Earl, b. 16 Mar 1922 at Mechanicville, m. Beverly Janet Legacy on 19 Sep 1950 at Bennington, VT.

J-2  George (V) Hayes, b. 18 Feb 1924 at Mechanicville, d. Feb 1944 at Kearny, Buffalo Co., Nebraska.

J-3  Lorayne Marie, b. 3 Feb 1926 at Mechanicville, m. Edwin Coons

J-4  (notation says “half sister”) Gail Ann, b. 7 Sep 1945 at Troy, m. Carl Mason on 28 Aug 1965 at Mechanicville.  Gail Ann must have been the daughter of Angiela Durante, since Ethel Sparks died in 1935.

J-1 William Earl wrote to Goldie in 1970 that he understood his great grandfather (that would be G-3 George (II)) had worked as an animal trainer with the Sig Sautelle circus.

That’s as far as I can go with the information in Goldie’s Vol. IV.  Maybe you have some more information that bears on all of this.  It really would be interesting to finally figure out whether Sig Sautelle was G-3 George (II) or the George B. from the other line, who lived about the same time and around the same area.

To “dsatts”:

Your line, as you probably know, is descended from A-4 Nicholas Satterlee, while “Warren” is a descendant of A-6 Benedict Satterlee.  Such a coincidence that your family also lived at Mechanicville.

I’m sure you know, but others here probably don’t, that Satterlee Hall at SUNY Potsdam is named for your grandfather, Oel Ward Satterlee (1906-1970).   The college theater is in that building.

Your line is A-4 Nicholas S., B-2 John (I) S. & Experience Lamphere, C-9 John (II) S. & Hannah Hyde, D-5 Joseph S. and Dorcas Babcock, E-2 Zina S. and Mary Ann Bates, F-3 Emer Darius S. & Delia Brael, G-4 Zina Emer S. & Xenia Gaylord, H-1 Oel Ward S. & Adah Frank, I-1 David Ward S. & Sharon Denny, J-2 you!  This is in Goldie’s Vol. II.

I am descended from another son of B-1 John (I), C-7 Gideon, and “boats” is descended from their brother, C-10 Sylvester.  To get to a common ancestor with “warren,” though, we all have to go back to the Rev. Wm. in England, or Generation A minus one <G>.

Hi, Warren …

Seems like that George E. would have been George and Ethel Mae’s first child, since J-1 William Earl was born in 1924.

Do you know anything else that might shed some light on the Sig Sautelle mystery?

Katie, Only that my Father George Hayes used to tell us that his Grandfater ran away to the circus and became and elephant trainer.  I know when my brother  William Earle was in Fl.  he saw a lot of Satterlees in the phone book.??

My Father and his twin sister were born Nov. 4, 1899 the birth date listed was for their older brother Leo, the one that changed his name to Seehan.

Hello, all you Satterlees.   I am researching John Abram, son of Abram Isaac and Susan Frances Demarist.
I am hoping find more information for John Abram and Nancy Jane (Hager) Satterlee’s children. If the information that I have found is correct, it is a bit destressing. Does anyone have anything about these
children: Willard/George/Beula/Sherman/Alice/Fredrick?
Where did they go after 1920?  what happened to them?

We are of the same line because I have them listed in my family tree as well.  We are at a cross roads right before them in the line with one missing member that connects us to one of the brothers that came from England.  My father and I are going crazy to hit that link.  The mans name is John but there are several in that time period.   We just need to figure out which one.  My father has visited several places and I do believe that he even has a picture of the gravestones of your ancestors.

Hello, Thomas!  You and I are second cousins, once removed.  Pretty close relatives, as things go on these forums  <G>.  Pleased to meet you.

If you have not already done so, I’d suggest you go to the “history” tab in the lefthand margin and scroll down to “We Were Pioneers,” the memoir written by my grandfather, Elbert Elroi Satterlee, who was your great-grandmother’s brother.  There are two parts, because I transcribed it in two sessions, and actually there is a third part that I haven’t put up on the web site yet but is published in Goldie’s books.  It will give you a wealth of information about your Satterlee great-grandmother’s youth and family.

Grampie’s writing includes some information going back into previous generations, but some of it has been superseded by research that has been done since his time.

Read through “A Brief History of Satterlee-ley-ly in England” on the “History” page of this wonderful web site that Bill Satterlee has made available to us (thanks, Bill!); that will give you the English history, as far as we know it, from Phillip Bocland, Lord of Shaddingfield, in the 1200s down to the Rev. William Satterlee, vicar at Ide in Devon in the 1600s.  This material is transcribed from Goldie Satterlee Moffatt Fowler’s first volume of Satterlee-ley-ly genealogy, first published (privately) in 1966.  Goldie was a distant cousin of ours who became fascinated with the genealogy in the early 1950s and spent more than 40 years researching it.  My mother and Goldie were in frequent contact, and I have all of Goldie’s books, though not the last editions of all of them.

So the Rev. William, who is a fairly colorful character himself, had four sons who migrated to the colonies in the mid-to-late 17th century.  Our immigrant ancestor (probably) was Nicholas Satterlee, who was baptized at Ide in 1949 and emigrated to Westerly, RI on 18 May 1669.  His wife’s name was Mary, and we know nothing else about her, not even whether she came from England with him or met him here.  However, he came to the colonies as a young man in his early 20s, and had no children that we know of until he was nearly 50.  It seems likely that Mary was a considerably younger woman whom he met and married in Rhode Island, though we have no data on that.

In any event, Nicholas seems to have hooked up immediately with a Seventh-Day Baptist congregation at Westerly.  This has always seemed odd to me, since he was the son of an Anglican vicar, and the SDBs were dissenters in England at the time.  As it happens we know about ANOTHER Nicholas Satterlee who was in Devon at about the same time and who came from an SDB family; there has always been some doubt in my mind that our Nicholas was actually the Rev. Wm’s son, although Goldie was totally convinced.

Continued on next post …..

Continued from previous post (as usual, I’m too longwinded) ….

So, with that little caveat, we can go on from Nicholas, who was A-3 in Goldie’s alphanumeric system, wherein the letter designates the generation (beginning with the immigrant generation as A) and the number is birth order in the family, or assigned arbitrarily when we don’t know that.

Nicholas and Mary had three children, all born at Westerly:

B-1 Penelope, b. 15 Nov 1698
B-2 John, b. 24 Feb 1701
B-3 Mary, b. 21 Oct 1703

B-2 John was m. 4 Jan 1726 at Westerly to Experience Lamphere, d/o John and Ruth (?) Lamphere.  He was married a second time on 4 Dec 1748, also at Westerly, to Amey Lamphere, d/o Richard and Mary (?) Lamphere.  (Experience and Amey were probably some degree of cousins.)

Most of B-2 John’s 10 children probably were by Experience, although we have a 1752 date of birth for C-10 Sylvester, who seems to have been the youngest and no doubt was Amey’s son.  Our ancestor from this family is C-7 Gideon.  We have no date of birth for Gideon, but he was m. 3 Jan 1764 to Ruth Barber Bentley, so he was probably born in the early to mid 1740s.

Around the time of the Revolutionary War, several SDB families from Westerly migrated to the Little Hoosick River valley in upstate New York.  Caleb Bentley, Ruth Bentley Satterlee’s brother, became the rental agent for the Dutch patroon, Van Rensselaer, who owned all the land.  Caleb managed to get title to his own farm, however, and it is still in the Bentley family, near Berlin, NY.  Gideon and several of his brothers and sisters and their families ended up in that area.  Some of Gideon and Ruth’s 9 children were born there, including our ancestor, D-5 Elisha, who was b. 20 Sep 1784.

D-5 Elisha married Almira Curtis in Washington County, New York, near Cambridge, in 1803.  They started west in 1805 and settled near Skaneateles Lake, in Onondaga County, NY, where 7 more of their 11 children were born.  Sometime between 1818 and 1820, a group of the Satterlee kindred and their neighbors embarked on flat-bottom river boats down the La Belle (now the Ohio) River to the Evansville, IN area.  In 1820 they are listed in the census in Pigeon Township, with 8 children.  About 1830 they moved to La Porte Co., IN, and stayed until after the birth of their grandson, William Wilson (my great-great-uncle Wilson), son of E-6 Ossian and Susan Washburn (Pease) Satterlee.

They stayed for a time in Vigo Co., IN and across the state line in Edgar Co., Ill. near the town of Paris.  (Elisha owned property there; I’ve seen the records.)  From there they moved to Stephenson Co., Ill., on the Wisconsin border, and later to Green County, Wis., just over the state line.  They went back to Edgar County for a time and then moved back to Wisconsin in 1853, when they settled in Richland County near Woodstock.  Almira died there in 1857 and Elisha in 1858; we have not been able to locate their graves, and suspect that they were buried on one of their children’s farms in the area, possibly Ossian’s.

From Ossian on, it sounds as though you have the data, and Grampie’s manuscript will give you a lot more detailed information.  If you have more questions, let me know.   I don’t know all the answers, though!

WOW!  That is way more information that I have been able to gather.  Great.  Thanks.

Gertrude Satterlee met another person of English origin in Minnesota, a Stevens.  The Stevens’ side of my family arrived in this country between 1676 and 1678.  Three brothers.  I understand they were ship captains.  Decided to stay I guess.  They too settled in up-state New York early on.  My father’s cousin has a complete geneology of that side of the family going back to the 1200’s.

It is kinda ironic that two such families would get together in Minnesota.  But I guess it would be more common than we would think.  Most all are of English origin.

Thans again.

It’s too bad Grampie didn’t get far enough in his life story to tell us how and where Gertrude met her husband, although you may already know all about that.  I do think I probably have some photos that include the Stevenses and maybe some of their children.  I know I have pictures of Uncle Charlie and Aunt Mamie and their children, and Aunt Gertrude’s family may have been in there too.  If I find one I’ll let you know.

G’day All,

A brief intro. I’m Roger Pye, a spiritual healer and genealogist in Canberra, Australia. I’ve been researching Pyes for almost 30 years and in fact I do have a mailing list called Pyemeet <http://remsset.com/pyemeet> with about 60 other researchers around the globe.

Hi Roger,

I can put you in touch with John O. — my first cousin once removed.  He lives in Ft. Atkinson, Wis.  If you want his e-mail address, send me yours at katiej_1958@nullyahoo.com.

I hope you have looked at my grandfather’s memoir, which is available here on Bill’s site.  He talks a lot about Uncle Wilson, who was his father’s brother and a big influence in his life.  In fact, had it not been for Uncle Wilson my grandfather and his siblings might very well have starved in Wisconsin.  In which case I certainly would not be here!

Of course we know a lot about Adm. Pye, who is probably the most famous Satterlee of the Nicholas line.  (The other famous ones are descendants of Benedict.)   I’m glad to have the information about the later descendants of his line. Goldie, in the edition of Vol. II that I have, only got as far as Adm. Pye’s sons.

I never noticed before that William Satterlee Pye Jr. married a Pease (although her name is in Goldie’s Vol II).   Uncle Wilson’s mother was Susan Washburn Pease, and his father Ossian’s brother Milton was married to her sister, Rebecca A. Pease.  I wonder if there is a connection there.

Speaking (as I was earlier in this thread) of research that has been done since Grampie’s time, we are excited about a DNA study that has been started by Dr. Alan (Chip) Satterly of North Carolina.  He has not been able to tie his ancestry back to any of the immigrant brothers, and is attempting to do that by comparing his DNA with that of known male descendants of each of them.  So far we have discovered that John O. Satterlee, a known male descendant of Nicholas, has almost nothing in common with Chip!  We’re waiting for results from another known Nicholas descendant, but I expect he will turn out to be closely related to John O. but not to Chip.  These results so far support my suspicion that our Nicholas was NOT a son of the Rev. William, but came from another Satterlee family in England.  We’re also in touch with an English researcher who is looking for male descendants of the Rev. William in England for comparison.

Sitterley Descendants of Gideon Satterlee
« on: Sep 28th, 2009, 8:21am »
The following was received from Dan Pultorak:

I have been tracing my Sitterly line back to Montgomery County, NY.
Like many other researchers there, I attempted to attach my Sitterlys
to Johannes Sitterly and Catherine Sittel of Guilderland without
success.  There are just too many Sitterly families living in
Montgomery County to be descended from the known Sitterlys from
Hellenbergh, GE.  It was only when I looked into the Satterlees of
Mayfield and Johnstown, Fulton County that I found the connections
that made sense based on the info I had accumulated.

The Satterlees seemed to move freely between Salisbury, Herkimer
County, Fulton County and Saratoga County, but none seem to have made
it to Montgomery County, at least according to all the census and
even church records.  It seems the census takers in Montgomery County
were already familiar with the Sitterly name, and tended to lump
everyone with a similar sounding name to that same surname although
not without some variations in spelling (i.e. Setterly, Schitterly,
Sitterley, etc.)

My William J. Sitterly died in Utica, NY in 1910.  From his obituary
and cemetery records, we know he was born in Fonda to Jacob and Annie
Sitterly.  William and his family seems to be closely tied to
Christian Sitterly and his son Timothy of Vienna, Oneida County, NY.
It turns out that this Christian was actually Abraham Christian
Satterlee, born in 1802.  He is my John Jacob’s (father of my William
J.’s) brother.  It appears that at least one more brother, John Jr.
Satterlee moved from Fulton to Montgomery County between 1820 and
1830.  Over the years they apparently accepted this change in
surname, and became known as Sitterly’s.  These three brothers were
sons of John Satterlee, born in 1776.  This family moved to Mayfield
by the time of the 1810 census.  There were at least four other sons
of John, who either remained in Fulton County or went to other
locations where they pretty much maintained their Satterlee surname.
They are included in this GEDCOM that I am providing for your
consideration.

However, John 1776 had a brother, James abt 1767, and Joseph abt
1772, whose descendants may have made their way to Fulton County and
possibly Montgomery County.  Also, John’s father Gideon had siblings
including John 1745, who married Hannah Hyde 1753 and Sylvester 1752
marr. Bethany Coon 1752, whose son Sylvester settled in Saratoga
County.  These brothers of Gideon Satterlee may well have Sitterly
descendants some of whom may have also been converted to Sitterly’s
in Montgomery County.  But because my line descends directly from
Gideon and his son John, the GEDCOM I am attaching ties directly to
him and his son John 1776. This is the line I have focussed on, and
have the most confidence that it is fairly accurate.

The GEDCOM file is available for download at:  http://www.satterlee.org/sitterley/sitterley.ged

Many thanks to Dan for sharing his work.

Sitterly line description
« Reply #1 on: Sep 30th, 2009, 10:17pm »
This is a follow-up to my previously submitted message/GEDCOM.

My Sitterly line ended with Carrie Sitterly (my wife’s GGrandmother), who was born in Utica, NY in Dec, 1869.  She married Louis R. Gray.  Carrie was the daughter of William J. Sitterly and Hannah E. Phillips, both of Montgomery County, NY.  William was the son of John Jacob, born about 1793 and Ann (Annie) Sitterly, who was  his second wife.  John Jacob was  the son, of John Satterlee, born about 1776, who in turn was the son of Gideon Satterlee and Ruth Bentley.  John Satterlee Sr. (possibly with one or two of his brothers) settled in the Mayfield/Johnstown area in what is today known as Fulton County.  Although some of John Sr’s. younger sons were content to remain closer to home, some of his older sons chose to move away and begin raising their families.  Specifically, John Jacob and his brother John Jr. arrived in Palatine, Montgomery county sometime after the 1810 census was taken.  Another brother, Abraham Christian, born in 1802 also may have briefly settled in Palatine before relocating his family to Vienna, NY.

It is with these three brother’s who moved into the Palatine region where the Saterlee spelling of their surname began to disappear for them.  However, even in some of the later census records, there are some instances where  their name is spelled as Setterly and Saturely before the Sitterly spelling really took hold.  Even some of the next generation, who left home at a fairly early age, managed to hang on to a surname that more closely resembles the original Satterlee spelling.

It is worth noting that even though Johnstown and Mayfield, Fulton County was so close to Herkimer and Montgomery County along the Mohawk River Valley, there were no Satterlees listed in Montgomery County in the early 1800 census records.  This is an extremely unlikely situation since Satterlees were known to have settled in Herkimer, Fulton, and Saratoga Counties and moved freely back and forth.  My theory is that the Hellenbergh  Sitterlys ,who started out in nearby Guilderland, Schenectady County migrated to this Palatine, Montgomery County region first, and any Satterlee’s that subsequently arrived were blended in the records with this group.  Now, it’s a near impossible task for researchers to sort out these two families because both used many of the same common given names.  I had the advantage of cemetery records  and newspaper obituaries that placed my William Sitterly into this region, and once I firmly established his exact date of birth (no birth record found yet), by the process of elimination I was able to break out my family group and tie them into the Satterlees living in Fulton County.

Although I encountered no instances where some member of the original Sitterly family members were tagged with the Satterly spelling , I am  convinced there are other Satterlees in Montgomery County census and church records “masquerading” as Sitterlys.  My hope is that other descendants will be able to build upon the strawman GEDCOM I have provided for my direct line and other known connections, so we can sort out these two distinct family groups living side by side in Montgomery County.  All corrections/additions are appreciated.
