Notes
a. Note:   JAMES B. BOUGHTON (son of Timothy and Martha Scott Boughton), was born in town of Ridgefield, Fairfield Co., Ct., Feb. 24, 1780. During his father's absence in the service of his country, in the trying period of the Revolutionary war, his family, embracing his wife and four oldest children--Martha, John, Sally and Thaddeus--were taken from their home in Poundridge, N. Y., to her father's, Capt. James Scott, of Ridgefield, where they remained until her husband, Timothy Boughton, returned from the war, which, when he did, he found himself pecuniarily embarrassed and settled on farming lands three miles east of Ridgefield village, where he lived until his death, September, 1806. He, James, continued to live in Ridgefield and vicinity until married, which he did January 1, 1800, to Sarah DeForest, daughter of Capt. John DeForest, of Ridgefield, where she was born March 20, 1778. They settled in Ridgefield, where they farmed for a time, then moved to Redding, where he burned lime at the lime kilns in Redding, moving about 1815 to Delaware county, N. Y., where he engaged in clearing land for a farm. The second season after settling there, 1816, the year of the great frost, the crops were cut off, and starvation seemed imminent; his father-in-law, Capt. DeForest, who was a well-to-do farmer of Ridgefield, learning of their suffering condition, took his teams and wagon and moved the entire family back to Ridgefield, from which, the following year, they removed to the banks of the Hudson river near Rhinebeck, N. Y., from which, not long after, they removed to Victory, Cayuga county, N. Y., where he bought a small farm and built a house and cooper shop, in which he made a large number of barrels for the flouring mills at Port Byron, on the canal, eleven miles distant. They continued living at Victory with several of their children married and settled in the vicinity, until some of the families of their children having moved to Illinois and Michigan, they sold their farm in Victory in 1846, and moved to Jackson, Mich., and lived with their daughter, Esther Van Alstine, where she, Sarah, died, Dec. 21, 1861. After her death he went to reside with his son, John D. Boughton, at Milledgeville, Ill., and from thence they moved to Hazel Green, where he died July 3, 1862, aged eighty-two years. source: Pages 493-494, "Bouton--Boughton Family.
