Zachariah Deyoe was born September 24, 1774. On February 13, 1799 (or February 12 1800), Zachariah married Phebe Oakley at the Schaghticoke Dutch Reformed Church. Phebe Oakley was born around 1784 and died in 1825.
The website that had this information caught my eye because my third great grandfather’s name was Zachariah Deyo Oakley. Zachariah was born in Renesselaer county, New York, the same place as the location of the Schaghticoke Church.
I have searched to find if there are any connections between Phebe Oakley and Zachariah Deyo Oakley to cause Zachariah’s father John I. Oakley to possibly name his after Zachariah Deyo. John was born about 1786 and died in Schroon Lake, Essex county, New York on February 24, 1859. John married twice, first to Phebe Newville, who bore him 6 children and died in 1834.
John would then marry Temperance Lane in 1837. He would precede her in death in 1859 and her in 1877.
I wonder if Phebe Oakly could possibly have been John Oakley’s sister.
