Joanna Wyatt

F, b. circa 1705, d. 28 March 1741
     Joanna Wyatt was born circa 1705. She was the daughter of Jonathan Wyatt and Martha Vose. She married Thomas Rose III, son of Thomas Rose II and Mary Gates, on 28 March 1728 at CT. She died on 28 March 1741 at Norwich, CT..1

Research completed by Helen Fitch Emery of Wayland, MA, in the 1960s and 1980s.

“Joanna Wyatt, wife of Thomas Rose, was almost surely born ca 1705/6, daughter of Jonathan Wyatt (1677- ?) and his wife Martha Vose, who were in the Stonington, CT/ Westerly RI by 1705.

Joanna was born between that couple's departure from Milton, Mass. about 1702 and the recording of 5 younger children's births in Stonington, Conn. 1707, 1709, 1711, 1713, 1717.

Joanna could possibly even be the "Gemina" bapt 3 Aug 1706 found in the records of the First Church in Stonington of Jonathan and Martha (Vose) Wyatt.

Supporting evidence is as follows:
Thomas and Joanna Rose named children Bashua, Martha and Mary, all names in the previous generation of the Vose family. Jonathan Wyatt's mother's name was Joanna Spurr. Preston adjoins Stonington. Joanna Wyatt definitely seems not to belong to the Connecticut Wyatt family, descendants of John of Hartford."2

Asa Burch1

M, d. 5 May 1778
     Asa Burch married Hannah Chase, daughter of Daniel Chase and Hannah Tallman, on 21 March 1769. He died on 5 May 1778 at Stephentown, NY..
(Comment: The source of Asa Burch Sr.'s marriage and death dates is a written family Bible record. In 1890, Thankful Oleva Burch, Asa Burch Jr.'s youngest daughter, transcribed the entire record and sent it to her niece Abigail Flagg, who was the family genealogist. I have a copy of that 1890 letter. Lucile Kimball of San Luis Obispo, CA. had the original letter, in 1999.
Asa Burch Sr. is most certainly a descendant of the immigrant Thomas Burch. However, the exact descent line has not been proven.


Research by Willard Emmons Burch and Helen Daggert in 1930s:
Asa Burch Sr. was the son of Benjamin (b. 1731) and Anna Udall who lived in Hartford, CT. [I have copies of that research, but there is no proof.]

"The Settlers of the Beekmanm Patent" written by Frank J. Doherty in 1990:
Two possibilites are listed:
1) Asa Burch Jr. was the son of Jonathan (b: 16 Sep 1740) and Eunice Burch. Given as source is the 18 Dec 1806 Stonington Deed, which listed children of Jonathan Burch. I have a copy this deed. The Asa referenced is another Asa Burch who lived in Herkimer Co, NY. Also, Bible records show that Asa Jr. was son of Asa Sr. Asa Sr married in 1769, and was too old to have been son of Jonathan born in 1740
2) Asa Burch Jr. wa[s the son of William Burch (b. 24 Jun 1742) and Thankful Towner. [Not possible because of Bible Records and wrong age, as stated above.]

"Ontario Loyalist Ancestors"
Asa Burch was the son of Jonathan (b. 16 Sep 1740). The 1806 Stonington Deed is referenced. [Not possible because of Bible Records, ages, and analysis of the deed, as stated above.]

Research by W. David Samuelson in 1996:
Asa Burch Sr. was the son of John Burch (b: 4 Jun 1711) and Mary Bessie. John was the son of Jonathan Birch and Mercy Rathborne.)
