      no. 94. Zadock Smith Huntley (Horn persistently calls him "Zodock" although subsequent authors have disregarded this ideosyncrasy), b. 8 Feb. 1761 at Lyme, Conn. (confirmed by Barbour Collection), d. 8 Aug. 1846 in Clayton Tp., Jefferson Co., N.Y. (date confirmed by Revolutionary War pension record, at Ancestry.com). He was of Lyme in his youth, and participated in the defeat of Cornwallis at Yorktown in 1781. He afterwards lived at various locations in New York, being enumerated with a woman, presumably a first wife, at Balls Town, Saratoga or Albany Co., at the taking of the 1790 census. Horn notes that he must have been married prior to his 1798 marriage to Elizabeth Balis, for when he was enumerated at Palatine, Montgomery Co., New York, in the 1800 census, he already had five daughters and one son. He has not been found in the U.S. 1810 census. According to Horne he was subsequently of Elizabethtown Tp. and of Lansdowne Tp. (both now in Leeds County), Upper Canada, but no dates are mentioned. Two daughters, Martha and Anna, are named in an online Huntley genealogy at http://www.irodgers.net/fam.his.HUNTLEY.htm, but no source is cited. Also, several web sources, including http://home.insightbb.com/~herbpaul/herb/Kyes0001.htm, distinctly state that Wait Huntley, wife of John Kyes, was a daughter of Zadock Huntley and Elizabeth Balis, and this seems to be borne out by the fact that they had a son with the exceedingly rare name of Zadock. We are also inclined to believe these statements because a group of marriages for four Huntley women, including three with these names, not only form a coherent sequence chronologically and geographically, but have overlaps in the names of the witnesses:
      1819. May 25th. Augustus Plumb, of Yonge, and Ann Huntly, of Elizabethtown,
      banns, witnesses Harvey Plumb, Jeremiah Mallory.

      1820. Feb. 15th. Festus Plumb and Martha Huntly, both of Yonge, banns,
      witnesses Augustus Plumb, Henry Guild.

      1830. May 19th. John Kyes [not a spelling error] and Weight [Wait] Huntley,
      both of Lansdowne, banns, witnesses Augustus Plumb, Abner Landon.

      1832. Jan. 11th. Allan Brown, of Leeds, and Betsy Ann Huntley, of Lansdowne,
      banns, witnesses Jacob Smith, Joseph S. Landon.
