  • Notes 
    • The son of Leonard & Priscilla Gleason Spaulding, John was born in New Hampshire and lived in Chenango Co., NY for a while before moving to Stockbridge in 1827 with his mother & a brother. He married Margaret Peterson on December 5, 1814 in Munnsville, Madison, New York and they had 12 children (13 according to the sketch below). The following is adapted from a biographical sketch of John and Margaret's son Ira published in "The Leading Citizens of Madison County, NY" - 1894 Biographical Review Publishing Company SPAULDING, JOHN: Son of Leonard. Wife Margaret daughter of Philip Peterson of Schoharie County. Philip was a Rev. War soldier. Philip died in Stockbridge. He bought land from the Indians and kept enlarging his farm. He invested in land in Michigan and owned 3 farms there. Margaret died aged 76, John aged 86. Their funerals were held in the old Indian meeting house at Stockbridge. Children are enumerated as per this database. The father of our subject was married in his native State. At one time he lived in the town of De Ruyter. When he came to Stockbridge, it was but sparsely inhabited; and he was one of the earliest settlers, there being but one or two white families living in the vicinity. Indians still made their home here, and wild game was plentiful. These pioneers had to live in a primitive fashion,--their clothes of homespun, woven by the deft hands of the women, and their food the produce of farm and forest. Mr. Spaulding made all the shoes for his family. He was a hard-working farmer, and was shrewd and far-sighted withal. He bought land from the Indians, improved a good farm, and engaged quite extensively in raising and feeding stock. He invested in land in Michigan, and at one time owned three or four farms there. His death occurred on the old homestead, at the venerable age of eighty-six; and his wife died there, aged seventy-six years. They were people of true Christian worth, and were honored members of the Baptist church, attending the old Indian meeting house at Stockbridge. Politically, he was a sound Democrat. Seven of the thirteen children reared by this worthy couple are living, namely: Philander J., a resident of Lenox; Samuel, of Stockbridge; Margaret, wife of Miles Parker, of Stockbridge; Ervilla, wife of James Peterson, of Michigan; Solomon S., a resident of Vernon; Gilbert, of Fort Atkinson, Wis.; and Ira, our subject, the youngest of the family." Children not included in the list below include: Ervilla b: 23 Apr 1830 m: James Peterson John Gilbert b: 30 Jun 1835 m1: Adelia Cornelia Crawford, m2: Miriam Brown Lois b: 21 Dec 1841 d: 23 Dec 1841
