Notes for Thomas Page and Sarah Coate

1772 Thomas Page Sr had a son (no name given in the source) born on 13 September (first day of week, Sunday), from a Quaker physician's records in Burlington County near Crosswicks. [1][2][3]. We have assumed that the unnamed son was this Thomas Page Jr, who married Sarah Coate, daughter of Daniel Coate [4]. We further assume that Thomas and Sarah Coate Page was the couple that moved to Ohio in about 1805 [5]. We have further assumed that Alice Scott was the minor daughter named in the 1746 will of Thomas Scott of Burlington County, New Jersey [6], which provides a family link between the daughters of this Thomas Page Jr, by his second marriage; and Barzillai Scott, likely the grandson of Thomas Scott (died 1746 in Burlington County); who lived in the same household with those daughters in Clermont County, Ohio in 1850 [7]. We welcome further evidence to support or refute these assumptions.

c 1793 Plausible date of marriage of Thomas Page and Sarah Coate, based on the birth date of first child, John, in 1793 likely in Burlington County, New Jersey. [8]

1804 Thomas Page deeded land to Nathan Middleton in Burlington County, New Jersey. "This Indenture made the nineteenth day of July in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and four Between Thomas Page Junior of the township of Chester in the county of Burlington and state of New Jersey and Sarah his wife of the one part and Nathaniel Middleton of the same place yeoman of the other part; witnesseth that the said Thomas Page Junr and Sarah his wife for the consideration of the sum of six hundred and forty one dollars and sixty seven cents to them in hand paid or secured to be paid to the said Thomas Page Junr by the said Nathaniel Middleton do grant bargain sell and convey unto the said Nathaniel Middleton and to his heirs and assigns a certain lott of land situate lying and being in the township of Chester." [9] The names in this deed are consistent with our assumption that this Thomas Page was the son of Thomas and was married to Sarah Coate.

1804 Thomas Page's wife Sarah Coate was named in her father's will: Daniel Coate, late of Evesham Twp owned 250 acres North Twp, died intestate. Division of land on May 30, 1804 to Children: John, Michael, Asahel, and Samuel Coate, and Sarah Page wife of Thomas Page, Jr. Each of the sons received 2/9ths and Sarah received 1/9th. Sarah and Thomas conveyed their 1/9th share and John Coate his 2/9th share to Asahel. [10]

1804 On 6 November, the account of Daniel Coate, made by Asahel Coate, was presented to the Burlington County Orphans Court. Payments included, on 25 December 1803, one to Thomas Page. [11]

1805 In the Spring, Thomas Page, perhaps this Thomas Page Jr and Sara Coates, moved from Burlington, New Jersey to a farm in Tate Twp, Clermont County, Ohio (later owned by the Simpsons)[12][13]. They settled near where the present town of Bantam, Ohio is and built the first brick house in Clermont County. [14] Thomas Page came from Burlington, New Jersey, to be a part of the Jersey settlement, founded by Rev. John Collins. [15] "The settlement commenced in 1803 by Collins, Higbee and McCollum, was the beginning of what was long known as the Jersey settlement. It was sometimes called Collin's settlement. The first log school-house erected there in was near the present grave-yard, and near what is now called the Bethel meeting House. Before 1807 the following heads of families lived within the school bounds of this school-house, without including any family west of Ulrey's Run, namely: Cornelius McCollum, Isaac Higbee, John Collins, Edw'd Doughty, Alexander Blair, John Drummond, James McIntosh, Robert Burnet, Thomas Cade, George Higbee, Michael Strickland, Widow Reeves, Jeremiah Foster, David White, John Jenkins, Edward Kinnan, Benj. Clark, Robert Loeds, Edward Barton, Robert Doughty, Daniel McCollum, Jesse Justice, and Thomas Page. These were all from the State of New Jersey. ... Thomas Page settled on the west side of Sugar-tree, and south of the turnpike, about three-fourths of a mile from what is now the turnpike bridge. In 180?, he dug a long mill-race on the west side of Sugar-tree, and erected a saw-mill within sight of the old State Road. Mr. Page inherited considerable wealth; he bought five hundred acres of land, and in addition to the saw-mill, made costly improvements on his land. After living on it eight or ten years, he engaged in merchandizing and a tan-yard at the mouth of Big Indian Creek; he was not prosperous, and sold his five hundred acres to a Mr. Simpson, who lived many years at Mr. Page's homestead, and his son Samuel Simpson, now lives there, and owns a large part of the land." [16][17][18]

1808 Thomas Page and wife Sarah sold 82 acres at East Fork, Little Miami River to Samuel Earheart [Everet] for $750, dated 31 Oct. 1808, signed by Sarah for her dower rights. [26][27][28] "This Indenture made the thirty first day of October in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and eight Between Thomas Page of the County of Clermont and State of Ohio of the one part and Samuel Everet of the same county and State of the other part.

In 1822 Page employed a young laborer, Jesse R. Grant to work in the tannery. Grant had just married Hannah Simpson, a local girl, the previous year.

The young married couple (Grant) rented the small, two-room cottage. In the north end was the living room with a huge fireplace at one end, serving for cooking and heating. At the south end was the bedroom in which on April 27, 1822 a future president was born. After the Grant's moved away, a lean-to kitchen was added. The Ohio Historical Society now maintains the house as a memorial open to the public." [46][47]

1820 Thomas Page built a tannery at Point Pleasant. [65]

1820 Jesse Grant "moved to Point Pleasant, on the banks of the Ohio River, some twenty miles upriver from Cincinnati, and commenced working at Thomas Page's tannery in order to accumulate enough capital to open his own business. He also wanted a wife. Page pointed him in the direction of Bantam, ten miles to the north, where John Simpson and his family, migrants from Pennsylvania, had settled on land purchased from Page. Jesse was soon courting Hannah Simpson" [66] "In 1820 Jesse worked at a tannery in Bethel, Ohio for a short time until the owner of the tannery, Thomas Page, hired him as a foreman at his Point Pleasant, Ohio tannery."

One person was engaged in agriculture and 2 persons were engaged in manufacture. Several of the neighbors were the same as were listed nearby in the 1830 census (Laurence Byrn, John Thompson), suggesting that the family stayed in the same house during the decade. [67]

1821 President Grant's parents were married by Rev Moses, in the old brick house that Thomas Page built in 1807.

1822 "Point Pleasant, a little village or hamlet on the Ohio, about twenty-five miles above Cincinnati, will ever be memorable as the birthplace of Gen. U.S. Grant. This event took place April 27, 1822. The next year the family removed to Georgetown, Brown county, which became his boyhood home. His father the year before had married Miss Hannah Simpson, of Tate township. At the time of his birth Jesse R. Grant was employed in the tannery of Thomas Page. The house in which the young and poor couple resided belonged to Lee Thompson. It remains as well preserved as originally built; a lean-to kitchen has since been added. It is a one-story frame, 16 x 19 feet, with a steep roof, the pitch being five feet, and on the right or north end is a huge chimney, affording a spacious fireplace. The window-panes are very small, and it was quite a humble domicile, having but two rooms; that on the right being the living-room, and that on the left the bedroom in which the general first saw the light." [68]

1823 Thomas Page sold Lot #5 in Point Pleasant to Joseph Cleany. [70]

1825 Sarah Coate Page's children were named in her mother's will, but Sarah did not inherit, suggesting she may already have died.

1826 Thomas Page sold Lot #12 in Point Pleasant to John Holyneaux [Molyneaux]. [71] Dower rights have been signed by Catherine Page. "This Indenture made the third day of August in the year of our Lord One thousand eight hundred twenty six between Thomas Page and Catharine his wife of the County of Clermont and State of Ohio of the one part and John Holyneaux of the County and State aforesaid of the Other part Witnesseth that the said Thomas Page for and in consideration of the sum of fifty dollars to him in hand well and truly paid by the said John Holyneaux the receipt whereof is hereby acknowledged hath granted bargained sold, conveyed and confirmed and by these presents doth grant bargain sell convey and confirm unto the said John Holyneaux his heirs and assigns forever the following described Lot of Land in the town of Point Pleasant at the mouth of Big Indian Creek and in the county and State aforesaid." witnessed by Daniel Page.

1843 Thomas Page lived on Race, between 15th and Row Street, Cincinnati, Ohio. [79]

1850 Few 1850 census records for this Page family have been found. Sarah Page (age 25, born Ohio) and Elizabeth Page (age 23, born Ohio), likely the daughters by Thomas' second marriage, lived in the household of Barcilla Scott (age 68, born New Jersey) in Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio. [80] Barzilla Scott was Thomas Page's first cousin through his mother's brother, Barzillai Scott, if the relationships that we show are correct.

1853 Thomas Page lived at 13 Arch, Cincinnati, Ohio. [81]

1854 On 26 September, Administration notes of Thomas Page, deceased reported "Administration granted unto William Highland. The widow Anna Page, having filed her relinquishment of right to administer on said estate. Israel Brown and William Hoon, sureties, Bond $700. John J Galloway, John Sowers and Anthony Highland appr. Bond taken and letters issued." [82] In March 1885, William Highland, administrator, petitioned to sell land for the estate of Thomas Page, widow Anna. The order was recorded in Volume 1, page 640 [83]. Note that the name of the widow disagrees with the marriages shown here. This may not be the correct death record, but no others have been found.

1854 On 9 October, John Gallaway, John Powers, and Anthony Highland presented the inventory for the estate of Thomas Page, late of Columbia Twp, Hamilton County, and set off for the widow provisions for her support "twelve months from the time of the death of the said deceased". The inventory refers to a widow and includes tools, animals, a brass clock, and bonds. [84]

1854 Land records for the estate of Thomas Page, deceased, have been indexed in Hamilton County, but I cannot find the record. [85]

1855 Thomas Page died in Cincinnati aged 83 years. [86]

c 1900 The old brick house that Thomas Page built in 1807 burnt down with multiple loss of life.

From "Recollections of an Old Pioneer" by J. B. Simmons: "As stated in a previous letter all of our roads in 1812, except the Round Bottom road, were individual by ways or blazed paths. The first regularly laid out road after 1812 was one from the State road, at a point two or three miles west of Bethel, to the Ohio River, at the mouth of Big Indian Creek, crossing the Round Bottom road, where Laurel now stands. This was called the Page road, because Thomas Page, sen., father of John Page, of Laurel, petitioned for the road. The starting point was near where he lived, and gave him an out-let to Point Pleasant. This was in 1815 or 1816. Mr. Page was one of the first to build at Pt. Pleasant, and soon after moved there and started the first store I think ever started in Point Pleasant. He also built a small warehouse. In this warehouse I heard the singular and famous Lorenzo Dow preach in 1816 ...." [87]

1882 Elizabeth Page, daughter of Thomas and Catherine Page, died on 22 October, age 58 of dropsy. She was born in Ohio. Lived last in 139 West 9th St, Cincinnati, Ohio. Buried in lot of John F Wiltsee. Spring Grove Cemetery, Cincinnati, Ohio. Interment record 37608.

Research Notes:

We do not know the relationship, if any, of the family of Thomas Page and Sarah Coate to the family of William Page, born 1772 in New Jersey, and died 1834 in Moscow, Clermont County, Ohio, who had a family home at Point Isabel (about seven miles from Point Pleasant). Our notes for William Page are at our Genealogy Page at this website. Census records suggest that this family lived in Kentucky for a while. Thomas' son John and Rachel Page were listed at Point Pleasant in the 1870 census.

The History of Connellsville, Pennsylvania mentions several male Page citizens, who might be related to the family of William Page. [88]

We do not know the relationship, if any, of the family of Thomas Page and Sarah Coate to the family of Benjamin Page, who wrote a letter in 1834, before his death [89], which is recorded at the Hamilton County probate court: Photocopy, of letter.
Our notes for Benjamin Page are at our Genealogy Page at this website.
The letter named wife Martha, son William B Page, son-in-law William J Madeira, son-in-law Thomas Bakewell, and witness John H Page.

"Mr. Page and some other man started up a tan yard at Point Pleasant at a very early day. Jesse R. Grant had rented and was running this tan-yard in 1822 when his son U.S. Grant was born. The writer was well acquainted with General Grant's father before he was married. He was an excellent Christian young man. Soon after his famous son was born I went to the tan-yard to see about some leather. He invited me to go up to his house and see his fine boy. I did so. He went to the bed, took him from the arms of his mother, and handed him to me. Thus I had the honor of nursing him before he was two weeks old. We had our fun over him, little thinking that I was holding in my arms one to become the greatest general, and most noted man of the age; one who should inaugurate the plan of settling National disputes by peaceable arbitration, instead of an appeal to arms, and one who should travel around the world, and receive the honors of all nations as no man had ever received them before since the world began...."
