Mary HOAG m. John GRIFFIN in Troy, New York

Journal by delorash

I'm searching for the parents of Mary HOAG, b.17 Jun 1798 in Pittstown, Columbia, New York. Some say her father was Abraham, but I find so many Abraham HOAGs with daughters named Mary born within a year of her birth that it's confusing. I need proof.

She m. John GRIFFIN b.29 Mar 1795 in Lee, Berkshire, MA in 1816 in Troy, New York and they have the following children: William H., Henry G., James M., Sarah, Huldah G., Mary E., Septimus, and George. I descend from Huldah.

She was a Quaker and our family has a black bonnet and a cape that belonged to her...they are precious to us.

Loved ones wrote a poem for her 89th birthday party in 1887 and I have a copy of it that I will be happy to share. This poem points out that she did weaving for her family and for others...I have a small piece of a sheet that she wove.

Hi, I'm wondering if you received my previous message. I have LOTS of information about the Hoag family, including Mary's parents. She was my 3-great grandmother. I am tickled to learn that she was a Quaker and I would love to read the poem written for her birthday party.

I hope you are still around. I was hoping to get this information. I am related to the Griffins but I have been trying to fill in Mary's information. I can't seem to find it anywhere.
