  • Notes 
    • SIMEON COE, son of Andrew and Mary (Sanford) Coe, was born January 13, 1772, in Southbury, CT. His first wife, whom he marned there on April 8, 1792, was Betsy Ann Johnson. With his bride and his parents, he immediately followed his older brothers to Norway, Herkimer County, NY. His wife died during the early 1800s leaving him with four young children. About 1806 he married Roxy Lany Ellsworth, who was born January 19, 1785, in Bennington, VT, daughter of Stephen and Anna (Clark) Ellsworth. At the age of nineteen she had had a natural son, John Ellsworth, born March 10, 1804, in New York. On March 6, 1809, Simeon and his wife, Roxy, sold land in Norway to Arnold Willoughby for $625, comprising 50 acres. A couple of years later, in 1811, they moved to Scriba, Oswego County, NY, and were among the earliest settlers of that town.

      Simeon was a member of the 168th Regiment of Infantry at Fort Oswego, serving there during the War of 1812. In 1821 he was promoted from ensign to lieutenant Interesting was his old powder horn, which bore the date 1814, with a representation of the old fort, and the inscription, "The redcoat who steals this horn will go to Hell sure as you're born Sim Coe, his horn." Many years ago this relic was in the possession of a New York dealer, but was subsequently sold and all efforts to locate it have been fruitless.

      Roxy Lany died July 30, 1853, and Simeon followed her five years later, at the ripe age of eighty-six, on June 8, 1858. Both are buried in the old Sweet Cemetery at North Scriba. Their headstones with bold inscriptions still stand firmly. Simeon had thirteen children in all, four by his first wife, and nine by his second. Through the sons of this second set practically all the Coes of Scriba and Oswego, and most of those of Syracuse, are descended.
