I just want to let you know I am not related to the Coventry family. I am the county
coordinator for the UsGenNet and have a website for Columbia County at:
I have accumulated a lot of resources for Columbia county and just like to share.
And you are correct for the date of Robert H. Coventry as being May 26 (I changed the
original post) - now I better check them all.
I was just intrigued by the Coventry name as it is not too common in Columbia county. I,
too, love www.fultonhistory.com
. It is where I found a legal notice for David Coventry
naming all his children. David married Maria Kesselburg in the Claverack Reformed Church
19 Nov 1809 and had:
William Henry, Peter Van Rensselaer, Mary Jane, Sally, Elizabeth, Charles and Edward.
Edward, Mary, Charles, and Sarah are buried in the Claverack Reformed Church Cemetery and
I don't think they married. Peter V. R. Coventry married Mary A. Rude in Cayuga
county, NY and he worked for and inherited his uncle Charles' tobacco company.
William Henry I haven't found yet but I'll keep looking.
