will now connect to Alexander Coventry (NOT Dr.) who was born and died in Columbia Co., NY
(ca. 1764-1839) and was the father of Phoebe Coventry (b ca. 1811) who married John H.
Jenkins. Alexander was the son of William Coventry and an unknown Native American woman.
William acknowledged him as his son, but the out of wedlock birth has made the ancestry of
the whole family hard to trace. Thanks to Dee Curry who found information in diaries and
other records plus the Richmond family history, which lists Phoebe's birth to
Alexander Coventry and Rachel Richmond, I have been able to research the family through
the 19th century. Still hoping to find out where Phoebe died in Illinois. Will be adding
to my database over the next weeks, but for now it at least adds Phoebe's siblings.
