Obadiah Sands / Odyssa Weed

PDF VERSION

A Daughter of James Weed/Sarah Richards of Delaware County, New York was the First Wife of Judge Obadiah Sands (1774-1858)

Maralyn D. Tolman and Richard L. Tolman, Ph. D.

    DNA evidence has now established that a dau of James Weed (named perhaps Odyssa)[simple_tooltip content=’1. cf. Anson-Sands III, note 13.’]1[/simple_tooltip] of Delaware County, New York was the first wife of Obadiah Sands. They had one son Obadiah Sands, Jr. (1801-1840); the wife probably died in childbirth. Obadiah married[simple_tooltip content=’2. Sands/’Tidd’ marriage: Roebling, Emily Warren et al.

Tolman ‘The Anson — Sands Connection of Delaware County New York, Part III: Antecedents of Maria L. Sands’, hereafter Anson-Sands III, online at www.29deadpeople.com.

    Primary records of the birth of Obadiah Jr. and the identity of his mother are non-existent. The birth occurred in 1801 at Deposit (Tompkins Township), Delaware County, New York (on the banks of the Delaware River near the western edge of the county). The settlement of Deposit around 1800 was, in the words of a local historian, ‘nothing but a mud hole’. No records. This was an intractable problem for which a solution seemed hopelessly beyond reach.

    Obadiah Sands (‘the Judge’) was born 1774 at Sands Point, Long Island, the ancestral home of the Sands family. He came to Deposit, Delaware County (then called Cookoze, Ulster County) in 1795[simple_tooltip content=’5. Halsey, Francis W. The Pioneers of Unadilla Village 1784-1840 (Unadilla, NY: privately printed, 1902) pp. 124-126; online at Ancestry.’]5[/simple_tooltip] with a cook (a Negro boy) to engage in the booming lumber business, met and married a wife abt 1800—she probably died with the birth of their son Obadiah Jr. in 1801.

    The first DNA strategy for discovering the name of the first wife was to explore the MDT at-DNA matches for individuals who may have lived in Delaware County around 1800 (MDT = Maralyn D. Tolman, a ggg-gdau of Obadiah Sands Jr.). One can search matches by place (Delaware County, NY)—so far so good. But when you pull up the full family tree of the match, the Ancestry search algorithm does not allow for a search by place. To search these trees by hand is laborious and mind-numbing and one soon tires of it. Another strategy was needed.

    Figure 1. 1895 Map of Delaware County, New York (orange); Deposit is on the western edge just above where the Pennsylvania line turns south (dcnyhistory.org).

    We have long been aware of the preoccupation of the family of Obadiah Sands Jr. with William Butler Ogden,[simple_tooltip content=’6. Wheeler, William Ogden The Ogden Family in America, Elizabethtown Branch, and their English Ancestry (Philadelphia, PA: J. B. Lippincott, 1907); lots of detail about their settlement in Delaware County; online at Ancestry; hereafter The Ogden Family.’]6[/simple_tooltip] the first mayor of the city of Chicago, 1837-1838 (see Anson-Sands III). He was the one who instigated the digging of the canal connecting the Chicago River with Lake Michigan, which changed the city of Chicago forever for the better. No less than five of the children and grandchildren of Obadiah Jr. have named their children after the illustrious mayor. ‘The Mayor‘ was born in Delaware County in 1805, the son of Abraham and Abigail (Weed) Ogden. In his words ‘I was born close to a saw mill, was cradled in a sugar trough, christened in a mill pond, early left an orphan, graduated at a log schoolhouse, and at 14 found I could do anything I turned my hand to, and that nothing was impossible.’[simple_tooltip content=’7. Murray, John David Delaware County, New York, history of the century, 1797-1897 (Delhi, New York: William Clark, 1898) p. 63.’]7[/simple_tooltip],[simple_tooltip content=’8. Online at www.chipublib.org/mayor-william-b-ogden-biography. ‘]8[/simple_tooltip] It is clear that the two families (Sands and Ogden) were acquainted with one another, perhaps related? Obadiah Jr. would also move later in life to Boone County, Illinois—adjacent to and southwest of Chicago.

    A second DNA strategy was to explore a possible connection between the families. The Mayor’s father’s family, the Ogdens, were from Morristown, Morris, New Jersey, but his mother’s family, the Weeds, lived in Walton, Delaware County (yes!) New York and before that came from Fairfield County, Connecticut.[simple_tooltip content=’9. Online at FamilySearch Family Tree. ‘]9[/simple_tooltip] A search of MDT at-DNA matches turned up no less than 38 Weed matches, not counting CA’s (common ancestors) and private trees. Out of curiosity a search of MDT’s at-DNA for ‘Teed’ (Obadiah Sr.’s 2nd wife; no relation by blood or DNA) produced no genuine hits as expected.

    Laurie Jane Hillyard (LJH) is a 1C of MDT and Noreen Olvis-Coffey (NO) is a 3C1R of MDT; NO is descended from Obadiah Jr. through his dau Odyssa Adeline Sands (1835-1921). The NO at-DNA has abt 160 Weed matches and the LJH at-DNA has 220.
