Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Mar. 16, 1817

Columbia County
New York, USA

Born a British subject, died an American citizen.

Sarah STUART was the daughter of Abiah and John Robert STUART.

She married Thaddeus PATCHIN, a shoemaker by trade, on 25 December 1750 in Wilton, Fairfield Co, CT.

Columbia County, NY became a popular place for members of the Shaker community. Among the first settlers were families named Patchin. An inn was kept at Lebanon Springs for several years before the close of the Revolutionary War.

The community of New Lebanon was formed from the former village of Canaan on 21 April 1818. Most records pertaining to Thaddeus' wife Sarah show Canaan as her place of residence after Thaddeus' death. Columbia County in this couple's lifetime experienced the predations of escaping British soldiers and became a stop on the Underground Railroad.

The known children of Sarah and Thaddeus:

1) Thaddeus Patchin
2) Nathan Patchin b. 1754 d. 1838.
3) Sarah Patchin Austin
4) Zebulon Patchin b. 1763
5) Hezekiah Patchin

In his will made in 1797 Thaddeus left Sarah his "life estate in all real estate and one cow", with their son Nathan as executor.
