March 10, 1796, Betsey Stedman, dau. of Tristam  Stedman, of Tyringham,  who d. Nov. 8, 1841, aged 90 years, and Penelope Hazzard, his wife, of Rhode Island. Betsey was born Dec. 18, 1773, and d. Nov. 15, 1852, nearly 79. Amos died Oct. 12, 1835. Both buried in "New Cemetery," Peterboro, N. Y. In 1804 he went from Tyringham to the "Milestrip" in the town of Smithfield, Madison Co., N. Y., and took up lands, chopped out of the forest a place for, and built, a log house, and was there when his s. Rensselaer was born, Aug. 10,1804. His brother Barzillai had taken up lands near there the year before, and Amos secured lands adjoining his. In Feb., 1805, he and his wife and four little children removed from Tyringham to this new home, with the household goods and the family on a covered ox-sled, drawn by an ox-team, with a horse as a "leader." He ultimately purchased and cleared a farm of 160 acres. His wife was descended from a Rhode Island family.
