Submitted by Ken Ives, 2000.


Generation No. 1

1. AMASA6 IVES (STEPHEN5, NATHANIEL4, JOHN3, WILLIAM2, WILLIAM1)1 was born Nov 10, 1747 in Wallingford, CT, and died Feb 22, 18332. He married (1) MARY EMMES (AMES?) in North Adams, MA. He married (2) BETHIA UNKNOWN.

Notes for AMASA IVES:

Alternate birth date is November 22.

Amasa reported for active duty in Adams, Berkshire, MA, March 1776. He was released from active duty September 1776.

In November 1998, at the behest of some of the Roberts family descendants of Amasa Ives Jr., a headstone provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs was placed to mark the grave of Amasa Ives Sr..

The headstone is in the Clarks Corners cemetery in Chautauqua County N.Y.. The location is adjacent to the headstones of Betsey Ives and Amasa Ives Jr. and records his birth date as Nov. 22, 1847 and year of death as 1835.

The research that led to the placement of the marker was part of the process to establish eligibility for the descendants of Amasa Ives Sr. to become members of the DAR.

7. HENRY A.9 IVES (STEPHEN8, AMASA7, AMASA6, STEPHEN5, NATHANIEL4, JOHN3, WILLIAM2, WILLIAM1)15 was born Jan 19, 1824 in Lenox, NY, and died Aug 09, 1890 in Batavia. He married ANNA ROSS Jun 29, 1854. She was born Abt. 183416.

Notes for HENRY A. IVES:

There is some confusion concerning the family of Henry Ives. ACI gives names of two children, Harry and Arthur. Henry, his wife, Anna, and three children appear in the census of 1860, living very near Stephen and Harriet Ives. The three children listed in the census are Hattie, William, and Peter (who was only a few months old). To add to the confusion, Arthur's birthdate as given by ACI and Peter's birthdate as calculated from the census are very close. Lacking any better information, all five presumed children are shown here.
