He was also known as Samuel Covenhoven. He was also known as Samuel Cowenhoven. He and Anna Patten (92746) removed to Muddy now Toronto,, Ontario, Canada, after 1808.

She was buried St. Peter's Anglican Church, Erindale, Peele County, Ontario, Canada. She was also known as Annetje Nancy Conover. She was also known as Annetje Nency Van Petten.

Generation Two

809. James2 Conover (92747) was born 1774; baptized Mohawk Valley Reformed Dutch Church; record is in Dutch; m. Julia Ann Lambert (92751), daughter of Corporal Cornelius Lambert (92753), April 6, 1802; d. 1847.

Julia Ann Lambert (92751) was born in 1788. She died on May 26, 1866 Ontario, Canada.

Children of James2 Conover (92747) and Julia Ann Lambert (92751) were as follows:

810. Rebecca Marrie2 Conover (92748) was born April 3, 1775; baptized Mohawk Valley Reformed Dutch Church; m. John Searle Harris (391358), son of Daniel Harris (391360) and Dorothy Rude (391361), January 24, 1794.

We have found John C. Harris in the 1800 Census records of Kortright, Delaware Co., NY. Also, in the same area are Daniel Harris m. Dorothy Rude and other Harris individuals who by their names appear to be his sons. It would seem therefore, that John C. Harris in Kortright is probably his son, John Seale Harris. This places John C. Harris in the same vicinity as Samuel Covenhoven/Conover of the Albany area whom we believe to be the father of Rebecca Covenhoven. Samuel Conover apparently died in Trafalgar Twp. in 1827. Another interesting coincidence that came to light was the family of Joseph Fish and Phebe Butt were also found on the 1800 Kortright census. Two of their sons married two of John C. Harris' daughters. The naming patterns of the children of John C. Harris and Rebecca Covenhoven are lending further support to what we know so far. It's looking very promising and we hope to find further records. I do believe the information I found on the IGI regarding the Harris family is incorrect when it states John Searle Harris and Rebecca Covenhoven married at Preston, CT. Kortright or Albany are more likely locations.

Will keep you informed of our progress.
