Husband: George HADLEY
Wife: Esther (Hester) ?
There is the listing for the death for a Catharine Hadley, daughter of George and Esther, in the Platterkill Valley Community Ground, Ulster County, NY as Nov. 8, 1807 and at the age of 1 year 5 months and 22 days. This would calculated for her birth to be on May 17, 1806.
However, no indication has been found as of Feb 2008 this George was ever married or for that matter ever having a child. The child's death information is listed in that it is possible this George could have been married and had a child since his parents were from Yonkers NY and some of the Hadley's of this family found their way into southern Ulster County, NY where the Town of Platterkill is located. (Yonkers being south of Platterkill, NY)
Esther (Hester) ?:
On the probate record of her husband George in the County of Dutchess County, NY dated 22 July, 1826, Esther signed the probate with an "X" indicating this was her "mark" and was witnessed by John Barns and Daniel Weekes. On her husbands probate that was executed when she was alive, her name was spelled as Esther. However, on her own probate, her name was spelled as Hester. It is likely she may have used both names. Since the name that was used when she was living as it appears on her husbands probate is Esther, that is the name that is used in these records.
