    • While the gravestone does say 1853, there is contrary evidence that says 1852: Joseph Jacox's will dated 16 June 1852, and the 1850 Federal Census for Chesterfield that shows him as 96 years of age in September 1850, therefore born in 1754. Since his gravestone shows him as 99 yrs and 5 mos, this would place his birth date as 25 Dec. 1752.

  • Notes 


    • The surname has many spellings, Jacus, Jacox, Jaycox, Jecocks, Jicock, and others. Jacus is on Joseph's and Phebe's grave markers.

      Chatham and Hudson Monthly Meeting, Columbia County, New York, Quaker Records show entries in 1794, 1795 and 1796 for Joseph and Phebe indicating that they were Quakers.  

       In 1800 Joseph and Phebe Jacox were settled in Peru (in a part of which is now Chesterfield).  Where the family originally came from is still unknown.  They were in Duchess County, New York, in 1789 when Betsy was born.  They were in Granville, Vermont, at the time of the 1790 US Federal Census was taken.  They were in Peru, Clinton County, New York, at the time of the 1800 US Federal Census. (Analysis of that census indicates that both Betsy Jacox and Argyle Campbell possibly were in Peru at that time.)  Joseph Jacox bought land in November 1801 in what is now Chesterfield. [Jurisdictional lines changed from Peru, Clinton County in 1799 to Willsboro, Essex County and on 20 February 1802 became Chesterfield, Essex County.] Research indicates the land to be on one of the earliest roads around Keeseville.  Also a log house was built on the land.  All succeeding U.S. Federal Censuses 1810 through 1850 show Joseph living in Chesterfield.

      From the Public Laws of the State of New York, 31st Session, Chap CL, "An Act Authorizing the Raising of Money to Build a Bridge Over the Great River Sable," passed 6 April 1808, p. 327-328, in part "III. And be it further enacted, That Richard Keese, Robert Batty and Joseph Jecocks, be and they are hereby appointed commissioners, for the purpose of superintending the building of the aforesaid bridge, at such place within the limits directed in this act, as they or a majority shall think proper; and the said commissioners or a majority of them may contract with workmen and purchase materials for erecting said bridge ; .........."

      Joseph birth and death dates are by analysis as follows. Joseph died on May 25, 1852 (based on probate papers on file with his will written in 1852) although the year 1853 is on the gravestone and shows an attained age of 99y 5m. In his will signed April 6, 1852 he declared his age as 98 years. On 1850 U. S. Federal Census enumerated on September 16, 1850 shows his age as 96. Therefore he would have been 97 in December of 1850 and 98 in December of 1851 which is in agreement with his will. He therefore would have been 98y 5m at his death. His date of birth then would be December 25, 1753.
