Joshua Hathaway two daughters
You state that Joshua had two daughters and I think I know who they are.

There is much circumstantial evidence pointing to Joshua Hathaway born 1760 Freetown Bristol Co MA as the father of Deborah and Rebecca (on her tombstone her name is spelled Rebekah) Hathaway. Both are listed as sisters in the Hathaway book.

Deborah 1791-1860 married Cushing Gardner. Rebecca 1795-1876 married Ruben Tower.

1 Joshua's first wife divorced him and remarried in 1789. So it is very likely Joshua remarried at about that same time which fits the birth dates of Deborah and Rebecca.

2 From "The History of Jackson County, Michigan" Deborah's son Lebeus Gardner states his mother was the daughter of Joshua Hathaway and a Mayflower descendant. We need ask how many Joshua Hathaway's were there that were born about 1760 and were Mayflower descendants?

3 In the death record of Deborah's sister Rebecca it states she is the daughter of Joshua and Rebecca Hathaway.

4 The book Hathaways of America lists Deborah Hathaway daughter of Alanson Hathaway and Rebecca Battles married to Cushing G Gardner page 194. But then Deborah's son states his name is Joshua and they are Mayflower descendents. Alanson nor his wife were Mayflower descendants.

5 Joshua's birth date fits for being the father and he is a Mayflower descendant.

6 Joshua was born in Freetown which is very close to Plymouth which is where Deborah and Rebecca are said to have been born.

I do not know if there is any relationship between the Lamberts/LeClairs and the LeClercs as Wilfred LeClerc has no info to trace lineage. There is no Donat LeClerc but there is a Donat LeClarc in St Mary's Cemetery; again with no info to trace lineage. There is a Doris LeClair Courtemanche who was the daughter of Donat and Lea (Lambert) LeClerc. Donat married Lea on April 24, 1922 in Claremont. Donat was born on October 27, 1896 in Wheeden, Quebec, Canada and it looks (not verified) that he died in 1961.

Isaac Hathaway (1704-1749) Dupe - Plummer Burial Ground

Thanks for the up front honest admission. Third Isaac Hathaway dupe since 2010 - so not the last. The last was a bitter contest between two non-descendants who even swapped cemeteries to declare supremacy! Ridiculous. One finally went up to prove he is in Plummer Cemetery - then clarified the cemetery location. Both agreed to transfer to me, the descendant.

I loath these batch uploads of data without checking first, especially of this era.

Having looked long/hard over many years, I find the parents citation (burial location) highly dubious but have linked it anyway. If true, I welcome it, of course. I requested grave photos - let's see if they really are there. I'd like to see a source for her middle name as Ruth. On your page for Jacob, "Versailles, Elizabeth Starr" is the editor, not author, Hathaway Family Association the publisher, not added author, and printer merely that.

The Hathaways are well and voluminously documented so in such situations, I try to keep it about the grave itself, thus the case with my 6th gr-grandfather Isaac Hathaway I (1704-1749). My particular interest is EXACTING epitaphs and photos - something F-A-G can add better than any other format or repository to the general Hathaway knowledge bank.

I try to add new/unknown information and try to keep it scholarly, thus I ONLY consider "sources" to be vital records, period ephemera, and well-researched genealogies - not contemporary family trees, internet compilations, side comments, etc.

That said, toward your request, I have:

linked as requested - but proof they are there is welcomed,
cleaned up the "bio" to a more scholarly format but not cited family tree "sources" etc. for reasons stated. There was one more child (thus 8) but I believe Rebecca Hathaway was a child mortality, which I try not to overlook when I can prove. She was born about 1730 - not sure so won't post.
I have no control over children linked TO Isaac Hathaway I except that of my 5th gr-grandfather, Isaac Hathaway II (1729-1798)
I hope you will delete yours BEFORE all of the six remaining children link to Isaac - which could take a very long time. . . .

Thanks for the update,

Philip in NYC

The research currently posted came from resources available through I am currently in the process of doing more in-depth research into each of the families buried in Ancestry. As I get updated information, I transfer it to FindAGrave but the resources and trees are all available through Ancestry.
