- From: W. L. Irish - [from notes on Joseph and Susannah, pg 71] " . Mrs. Susannah (Gallop) Goodspeed, widow of Gideon Goodspeed. She was born in 1768 in Rhode Island and died after 1850 in Ira, Vermont."
[from notes at the end of the section, pg 72]
"Susannah Gallup, born about 1760 near Scituate, Rhode Island."
From: Joe Travis
W.L. proposed two dates of birth. Please consider that if Susannah is b.
1768 and d. 1850, she would have been aged 82 at death and if b. 1760 she
would have been 90. I can accept that, but also consider that she is the
second wife of Joseph, who presumably married her after the death of the
first wife, Phebe. Phebe's date of death is given as "1830-1840". If we
take the earlier date, 1830, then Susannah would have been aged 62 (or
70) at the time of the marriage - if Joseph married her immediately
following Phebe's death. Joseph would have been 52. When you combine this
with W.L.'s report that Susannah's first husband, Gideon, is brother to
Joseph's mother - it just sounds kinda' strange. See notes of Joseph and
