Notes for Millison or Millicent GILBERT
“In 1798 the Northampton Circuit was organized as part of the Albany District by the Methodist circuit riders of that day. This area is where the villages of Northville, Fish House, Edinburg, Osborn’s Bridge and Mayfield were located. Several years after this Wells and Lake Pleasant were added.”623 Very few records survived. The records that did survive did not include John and Milicent Brownell.


“John Brownell and Millicent Gilbert were married at the Gilbert Homestead, half-way between Fish House and Northville, Fulton County, New York.”58

John resided in Northampton, Montgomery Cnty, New York.612,575

John is about 26 when his family moves to Hope Falls, New York.555
According to an insolvency document dated 6 Dec 1813, Daniel’s son, John, is residing in Greenbush, Rensselaer Cnty and is owed a debt of $2.50 from David Thayer of Northampton, Montgomery Cnty who is the party claiming insolvency. David Thayer also owes Daniel, listed as residing in Northampton, Montgomery Cnty, New York, $11.50(?).577 Since these legal records take time to assemble, the addresses for Daniel and John may or may not be current to the date of the document.

John Brownell and his family live in the Town of Northampton, Montgomery Cnty, New York. His family probably includes his wife Millison, sons Ira and Gilbert, and daughters Eunice and Mary. Two older boys between the age of 10 and 20 included in the household are unknown. Two individuals in the household are engaged in “manufacture.”604

On 6 Jul 1824, John Brownell of Northampton in the County of Montgomery sold to Gershom Gilbert of the same place two parcels of land situated in the Town of Northampton and part of lot number twenty six of the Northampton Patent, bordering the Nathaniel Pease land and the highway that divides the Sacandaga and Northampton Patents.613

Millison “died in her 36th year.”131
