  • ID: I08186
  • Name: Ann CORWINE 1
  • Sex: F
  • ALIA: Anne (Anna) /Corwin/
  • Birth: AFT 1754 in Hopewell, Mercer, NJ
  • Birth: ABT 1745
  • Birth: ABT 1750 2
  • Death: ABT 1820 in Amwell Twp, Hunterdon, NJ
  • Note:
    The Corwin Genealogy (TCG) estimates that Ann was born c1750, and lists her after Ruth in the order of children. Ruth was born in 1754, which would place Ann born after that date. TCG states that she married Joseph Hayes. Those three items (approximate birth year, relative order of her birth and spouse) are all of the details that TCG gives about Ann.

    The NEHGR article lists the marriage of George Corwin & Abigail Hixson, but only lists the first 6 children (with their respective birth dates) in the same order as TCG. I am assuming that the last 3 children (Ann, Amos & Elizabeth) are not listed because the source that NEHGR used did not cover anything past 1754 when Ruth was born. I am therefore assuming that Ann, Amos & Elizabeth are indeed the last 3 children born, and they were born in that order; of course the 3 children could have been merely overlooked in the NEHGR article. TCG estimated the birth year of both Ann & Amos as "about 1750?", but that seems to be a very broad estimate--not based on any particular reasoning.

    In examining the birth dates given to George & Anne's children in World Connect, I note a large gap (8 years) between Nathaniel and Richard. If TCG is correct in Anne's birth order (after Ruth b. in 1754), and in marrying a Joseph Hayes, then I would consider it likely that Joseph Hayes died soon after marriage and Ann married George Snook soon after that. Furthermore I believe that George Snook may have also been previously married, having his 1st two children (Elizabeth b. 1765, and Nathaniel b. 1767) by some unknown 1st wife and the rest starting with Richard (b. 1775) by his 2nd wife Anne. I have not separated George Snook's children according to the presumed "unknown first wife" who died after Richard was born in 1767, as it is entirely possible that Ann was just overlooked by the NEHGR article that listed only 6 children of George Corwine and Abigail Hixon, and that she was born c1745 as many on the internet estimate (probably based on the birth of the children starting with Elizabeth in 1765).

    --------------------

    According to "Genealogy of Charlie Cook" (World Connect db=charliecook), Anne was a witness to her husband George Snook's will in 1803 as well as being mentioned in the will.

    According to Frederic Lathrop (World Connect db=fredericlathrop, title=Hunterdon Co, NJ, inhabitants 1700-1800), Anne was mentioned in her father George Corwine's will (but I wonder if it was just "Anne" or was it "Anne Snook"?). These were the references to the wills:
