The family profiles of Judah Burton and his wife Huldah Stanton, of Charleston, Montgomery County, were donated by Ron Humphrey. Ron thinks we have a "DYN-O-MITE web page". We think so too, because of great contributions like this! Both profiles contain names of many persons residing in Charleston and Fulton County. Ron points out that the two profiles, although from the same book, offer conflicting genealogical information. Ron's interested in all history of the Town of Charleston, Montgomery County and looks forward to sharing info with other Charleston researchers.
The Ancestry of Judah Burton
Charleston, Montgomery County, NY

The historic origin of the Stantons in England was in the times of William the Conqueror; the family seat in Leicester, where lived Sir Malgerus, Lord of Stanton. This is undoubtedly the original Stanton family. No claim is made nor any attempts to connect the Stantons of Stonington with this remote period. Their history in America has been one of honor and achievement. On the monument erected on Groton Heights in 1830, "in memory of the brave Patriots who fell in the massacre of Fort Griswold, near this spot on the 6th of September, 1781, when the British under command of the traitor Arnold burned the towns of New London and Groton and spread desolation and woe throughout this region," are the names of three Stantons who perished on that day. Captain Amos Stanton of Groton, Lieutenant Phineas and Sergeant Daniel Stanton were all killed "fighting like tigers." In all the wars of the United States, Stantons have borne a prominent part, down to the civil war, when Edgar M. Stanton, as secretary of war under President Lincoln, rendered valuable service.
(I) Thomas Stanton, born in England, came to America in the merchant ship "Bonadventura," sailing from London, England, January 2, 1635. He settled first in Virginia, later in Boston, and in 1637 was of Hartford, Connecticut, where he married. In 1650 he established a trading house in Stonington, Connecticut, on the Pawtuck river. The family home for a few years was in New London, Connecticut, until they were permanently settled at Stonington. Thomas Stanton was very prominent in the public affairs of Colonial Connecticut. He understood the Indian signs and dialects which brought him in contact with Governor Winthrop, for whom he acted as "Interpreter General of the New England Colonies." Miss Caulkins says, "On the Pawkatuck river the first white inhabitant was Thomas Stanton. He appears to have been always upon the wing, yet always within call. He was required to be present wherever a court, conference or treaty was to be held. Never perhaps did the acquisition of a barbarous language give a man such immediate widespread and lasting importance. From the year 1636, when
he was Winthrop's interpreter with the Niantic Sachem to 1670, when Uncas visited him with a train of warriors and captains to get him to write his will, his name is connected with almost every Indian transaction on record." He was county commissioner and judge for twelve consecutive years; member of the Connecticut general assembly seven years, Indian commissioner many years, and a successful man of affairs. He owned a great deal of land and was active in his business right up to his death. His name is first on the list of members of the First Congregational Church of Stonington, which he was instrumental in organizing. He died December 2, 1677, at the age of sixty-two years. He married, in Hartford, Connecticut,
in 1637, Ann Lord, daughter of Dr. Thomas and Dorothy Lord, of Hartford. Dr. Lord and Dorothy were married in England in 1610, came to America, April 29, 1635, in the ship "Elizabeth and Ann." Children of Thomas and Ann (Lord) Stanton: 1. Thomas, born 1638, in Hartford, Connecticut; married Sarah, daughter of Captain George Dennison. 2. John, born 1641,

He was a pupil of that famous old teacher of the Puritans, Elijah Corlet. In 1654 John Stanton and John Minor were selected by the court commissioners to be educated as teachers of the Gospel to the Indians. Both young men,
however, left their studies and engaged in other pursuits. In 1664 John Stanton was first reader in the Southertown (Stonington) Church. February 16, 1675, he was commissioned captain of one of the four Connecticut regiments raised to fight in King Philip's war. He served with distinction and was in command at the capture of Canonchet, the chief Sachem of all the
Narragansetts. This service was acknowledged later by the "Courts" in the remission of a fine imposed for "boldness" in protesting against certain laws passed by the assembly. He married Hannah Thompson, daughter or sister of Rev. William Thompson, missionary to the Pequots, who resided in Stonington and New London until 1663, when he removed to Surrey county,
Virginia. His grave is in the old burial ground at Wickaquack Cove, Connecticut.

So far as learned, the name Burton had its origin in England, where it is first recorded in public life in 1460, when Sir Edward Burton was created Knight Banneret by King Edward after the battle of St. Albans. The family is known in England, Ireland and Wales. In America the name dates to 1630, in the town of Lynn, where lived Boniface Burton, said to have died at the
great age of one hundred and fifteen years. There were others of the name at that early period whose descendants spread over Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut. The history of the present family begins with Solomon Burton, who settled in Stratford, Connecticut, where he purchased his first land on the east side of "Clapboard Hill" and built a tannery. He married, August 1, 1687, Mercy, born in 1665, daughter of Jeremiah Judson. They had six children.
(II) Joseph, eldest son of Solomon and Mercy (Judson) Burton, was born in Stratford in 1690. He married Anna Uffoot. His widow married (second) William Patterson.
(III) Judah, son of Joseph and Anna (Uffoot) Burton, was born June 9, 1739, in Stratford, Connecticut. He was reared in Connecticut, where he married, and later settled in Dutchess county, New York, where he was living during the revolutionary war. He enlisted in the Sixth regiment Dutchess county militia, in which he was lieutenant, and he held the same rank in the
Dutchess county "Associated Exempts," Colonel Zepaniah Piatt. After the war he located on a tract of land in Charlestown, Montgomery county, New York, situated on Schoharie creek. He was the pioneer of the vicinity, where in 1758 he built the first saw-mill and grist-mill in the town. A village grew up around the mills, which still retains its early name, Burtonville, given in 1837. The original mill stood about half a mile below the present Burtonville mill. It was carried away by high waters in the spring of 1814 and never rebuilt. Burtonville was first called "Mudge Hollow," after Captain Abraham Mudge, who kept the first hotel there. When
a postoffice was first established there, the name of Eaton's Corners was chosen, but in 1837 it was changed to Burtonville in honor of Judah Burton, whose son Judah was one of the early postmasters; he built the first church in Burtonville, giving the lumber and having the building erected by his own workmen, paying for their labor himself. He married Huldah Stanton,
born April 17, 1740, died May 26, 1777, daughter of Daniel and Dinah Stanton, of Preston, Connecticut. Huldah Stanton Burton is mentioned in her father's will as the wife of Judah Burton. He bequeaths her forty shillings and mentions her having previously received her share of his estate. Daniel Stanton, father of Huldah, was a son of John (2) and Mary Stanton, of Preston, Connecticut. John (2) was the eldest son of Captain John Stanton (1) born in Hartford, Connecticut, 1641, died in Stonington, Connecticut, October 31, 1713. He married, in 1664, Hannah Thompson. He was the first recorder of the town of Southerton (now Stonington),
Connecticut. He was captain in one of the four Connecticut regiments in King Philip's war, and was in command at the time of the capture of Cannonchet, the chief sachem of the Narragansetts. Captain John Stanton was second son of Thomas Stanton, the emigrant ancestor of the Connecticut Stantons and their descendants. Thomas Stanton was born in England. He
embarked at Lodon [sic], England, January 2, 1635, in the merchantman "Bonaventura." He settled first in Virginia, then in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1637, he located in Hartford, Connecticut, where he married Ann, daughter of Dr. Thomas and Dorothy Lord, of that place. In
1650 he established a trading house in Stonington, Connecticut, on the Pawcatuck river. Thomas Stanton was a most important man in the colony. He had acquired a complete knowledge of the Indian signs and language, and was the official interpreter between the Indians and the whites, and always required to be present wherever court, conference or treaty was to be held.
He owned a large amount of land and was accounted a wealthy man. He died December 2, 1676. Ann, his wife, died in 1688. They had ten children. (See Stanton.) Judah and Huldah (Stanton) Burton had issue, including a son Nathan (see forward), and Judah (2), who succeeded his father as the neighborhood miller, building a mill of his own which has since been operated by a number of firms.
(IV) Nathan, son of Judah and Huldah (Stanton) Burton, was born in Stratford, Connecticut, May 1, 1764. He was a part of the family emigration to Montgomery county, where he was a farmer and a miller associated with his father. He married, in Charlestown, Montgomery county,
New York, August 24, 1796, Eleanor Cowenhoven.
(V) Elias C., son of Nathan and Eleanor (Cowenhoven) Burton, was born in the town of Charleston, New York, May 21, 1809. He married, January 18, 1832, Catherine J. Conover, born May 12, 1811. In early manhood he moved with his father to a farm just north of what is now Gloversville, Fulton county, New York, but a few years later left the farm and came to
Gloversville (then called Stump City) and embarked in a general store business, continuing until 1890. He was prominent in all the public life of the community, was a member of one of the first boards of education, and held several other important offices. In politics he was a Whig and Republican, in religion a Congregationalist. He died June 19, 1908. His wife Catherine died September 25, 1890. Children: 1. Seth C.; see forward. 2. Nathan J., born July 4, 1834; married Anna E. Leonard, June 15, 1854. 3. Ann E., married Edward A. Wells (see Wells). 4. Jacob
Woodhull, born July 30, 1838; married December 1858, Harriet Smith; children: Charles, Henry, Anna, Lucius, Jacob W. 5. Janette, married James S. Todd (see Todd). 6. Emmet Elias, married Frances Moak; children: Clyde, married Mayme Tyrrell; Rena and Leon.

(VII) Frank, second son of Seth C. and Harriet A. (Judson) Burton, was born January 16, 1861. His early education was obtained in the common and high schools of Gloversville, graduating from the high school in 1878. He entered Union College at Schenectady, New York, where he was graduated A.B., class of 1883. Between his academic and college years he had read
law with his uncle, A. D. L. Baker, and after graduation from college resumed his law studies and was admitted to the Fulton county bar November, 1885. He was at once admitted to a partnership with Judge Baker, under the firm name of Baker & Burton. In 1904 the firm became Baker, Burton & Baker, by the admission of A. J. Baker, the eldest son of the senior partner. He did not remain in the firm for many years, and on his retirement the old sign "Baker & Burton" was resumed, continuing so until February 1, 1910. At that date William B. Baker, former district attorney of Oswego county, New York, was admitted, and the business is now under the name Baker, Burton & Baker. Mr. Burton is active in his profession and interested in public affairs. He is a Republican politically, and has served as village trustee, alderman, water commissioner and trustee of the school board. Outside his profession he has many business interests. He is a director of the Fulton County National Bank, the Fonda, Johnstown & Gloversville railroad, the Gloversville Knitting Company and the Gloversville Real Estate Company; and a trustee of the Gloversville Library and Nathan Littauer Hospital. He is a member of the State and County Bar Associations, and of the Eccentric Club. He married, June 15, 1887, Emma McNab, born October 6, 1866. Children of Mr. and Mrs. Burton: Lillian McNab; Elizabeth Ashley, and John McNab.
Mrs. Burton traces her ancestry to Finley McNab, a native of the Highlands of Scotland, who married Christiana McDermid, who bore him children: John, married Margaret Walker; Peter, died unmarried; Archibald, married Christiana Walker; Helen, married Peter McEwen; Christiana, married _____ Carmichael. After the death of Finley McNab his widow and children
emigrated from Killin, Perthshire, Scotland, and settled in Gloversville, New York. John McNab, son of Finley McNab, was born in 1769, died August 28, 1848. He was a farmer, a quiet, sturdy man, one who was looked up to by his neighbors. In 1802 purchased the McNab farm, located in

[Comments from the copyist, Ronald G. Humphrey]
"Obviously, the ancestries of Judah Burton are completely different in the above two articles, and both cannot be accurate. I am a descendant of Lucy Brown, the widow of Henry Burton, one of Judah Burton's children. Although I am not a direct descendant of Judah Burton, I have a strong interest in the accuracy of any articles or genealogies referring to him.
I believe that the line tracing Judah Burton back to Capt. John Burton, as given in the first article above, is correct, and the second article is inaccurate. There are many reasons for this opinion. Perhaps the most conclusive reason is the birth date of Judah Burton. From his headstone at the Maple Avenue cemetery, Fultonville, NY, his birth date is given as June
9, 1739. This is the same date given in the Vital Records of the Town of Preston, New London county, Connecticut, vol. 1, p. 122, for the birth date of Judah, daughter [sic] of Isaac Burton. The birth, marriages and death of Isaac Burton are also given in the Preston records, as is the marriage of Isaac's father, Jacob Burton, to Judith Herrick. I have tried to verify the date of birth of Judah, son of Joseph Burton, in Stratford, Connecticut but have not located any official record. The Barbour Collection of Connecticut Vital Records shows nothing in Stratford (which is on the other side of the state, in the Bridgeport area).
The Montgomery County History and Archives Department, at the Old Court House in Fonda, NY has, in File #192-H, articles written by Alonzo J. Burton, a great-grandson of Judah Burton, Sr., and a grandson of Judah Burton, Jr. He repeats the lineage given in the Stanton article above,
although he says that Judah Sr. was born in Stratford rather than in Preston.
It is also disturbing to me that the second article above names both Nathan and Judah as children of Judah, Sr.'s first wife, Huldah Stanton. This second article lists Huldah (Stanton) Burton's death as May 26, 1777. Judah, Jr. was born (from his headstone, Maple Ave. cemetery) October 14, 1784, well after Huldah's death and Judah Burton's second marriage, to Eunice Morgan on 18 January 1778 at Preston, CT (Preston Vital Records, vol. 6, p. 72). This marriage record refers to Eunice Morgan as of Preston, and Judah Burton as Capt., of Nine Partners, which was an area of Dutchess county, NY at that time. It seems quite likely that a widower with tiny children (four born 1772 and after) would return to the town in which he was born in search of a second wife.
Since the second article appears to contradict itself concerning the ancestry of Judah Burton, I must assume it is incorrect. I believe the correct line of descent is that given in the first article, which appears to have been submitted by a member of DAR, who would want only the most accurate information to be presented.
I am always interested in exchanging information, about the Burtons, or any other families of Montgomery county, with particular emphasis on the Town of Charleston."
More about Ron's family search and interests: "FYI, I grew up in Burtonville, now live in suburban Chicago, have been interested in the local history of Montgomery, Schenectady and Schoharie counties for many years. Willing to share anything I have. Some of the Montgomery county surnames that I have a little info about include: Humphrey, Gordon, Herrick, Brown, Bussing, Hubbs, Bassett, Rickard, Bell, Eaton, Burton, Vosseller, Mabie and a few others. Main geographic interest includes Town of Charleston, Florida and Root in Montgomery county, Town of Duanesburgh and Princetown in Schenectady county, and the northern townships in Schoharie county."
