Ezekiel Straw 2nd

  • Born: 20 Feb 1763, Hopkinton, Merrimack County, New Hampshire
  • Marriage (1): Elizabeth Brown on 7 May 1782 in Pembroke, Merrimack County, New Hampshire
  • Died: 22 Sep 1819, Albany, Albany County, New York at age 56

  General Notes:

There is descreptancy as to whom his biological mother was. A 1905"copied" record by the Clerk at Hopkinton, NH is attached indicating his mother was "Bettsy."
There is no source listed on the copied birth certificate [dated 1905] to confirm this. Other sources state his biological mother was Martha Gould. Until I find the original documentation I will leave his mother as Martha, whom his great daughter lists as his mother.
