Sixth Generation


83. John L NORWOOD806 was born on 5 September 1780 in New York, NY, NY.807,808 He was christened on 7 March 1781 in First & Second Presbyterian Church, New York City, NY, NY.809 He lived in New York, NY, NY on 19 January 1805.810 John appeared in the census in 1810 in New York, NY, NY.811 He was appointed Ward Committee, Democratic Republican Party on 2 November 1826 812 In 1829/30 he was an upholsterer in Manhattan, NY, NY.813 In 1835 John was an Uphosterer at 240 Water in New York, NY, NY.814 He was appointed Vigilance Committee for 2nd Ward on 2 November 1837 815 In 1840 he was an Upholsterer at 240 Water & 26 Carmine sts in New York, NY, NY.711,816 John died on 18 January 1856 at the age of 75 in East Brooklyn, Kings, NY.817,818,819 St Nicholas Society Records, deposition of Margaret Morris Norwood, eldest daughter of Carlisle Norwood, states that "John Norwood the 5th day of September 1780, he has of late put the letter "L" to his name, now John L. Norwood."
This suggests that his middle name may have been Lester, and not Rysile (which I believe is an error and should be Riffle) as stated in the Presbyterian Church Records.
