I am probably not descended from the same Jadwin that you are. My GGG grandmother was Phoebe Maria Jadwin. She married Titus Perry July 4, 1832 in New Lebanon Springs, NY. Witnessed by John Jadwin. Please contact me at

As far as we can tell, all Jadwins in the US trace back to John Jadwin, the Quaker immigrant, who settled in Westmoreland County VA in 1658 and then in Talbot Co., MD about 1665. He had two wives, sired two families. But there is always the chance of some Jadwins with a name change who may be descendants of a brother of John named Jonathan Jadwin of Lancaster County, VA who arrived with the family in 1658 and is "the lost Jadwin." Name may have been transmutted to Jourdan, Jordan, etc.

Hello, cousin. Yes, I am an Ohio Jadwin and would like to know some information on our great-grandmother and grandfather in Maryland as well. I do know from reading on the internet that they were quite wealthy plantation owners. I would love to find a portrait out there if one exists. If you know anything about our descendents, please let me know. Thank you so much.

Surnames: JADWIN and DALY
I'm not sure where this JADWIN line began, but Phoebe may have been the daughter of Jesse Jadwin and Rebekah Anderson. Their marriage (26 July 1788) is listed in "The New York Genealogical and Biographical Records" VOL. xii, 1881, page 137, under the heading "Records of the First and Second Presbyterian Churches of New York". They had quite a few children on the 1800, and subsequent Censuses.

I've verified that Jesse and Rebekah had a son named Renselaer, born in Rensellaer NY (1796). He married Lydia Look, and I know of 2 children, Truman Bragg Jadwin (b.1827, MA) and Phoebe Jadwin (b.1830, MA). Was she perhaps named after her aunt, Phobe?

Renselaer was intimately involved with my DALYS who settled in Grafton, Lorain County, Ohio ca. 1833, and in Pittsfield, Lorain, Ohio in 1836. In 1838, Renselaer is witness to John's and James' naturalizations. And in fact, James Daly named his son, "Renselaer L. Daly". I found "Renselaer" to be a "curious" name for an Irish lad, as it sounded Dutch to me. So as I searched for the reason behind this naming, and I found this connection! I don't know if Renselar helped my Dalys get a start in America, but he must have done something very wonderful for such an honor to happen. In addition to being friends with John and James, Renselaer marries John's widow, Mary Almira Daly in November, 1843! (John and James had both died in 1843).

Renselaer Jadwin died around 1871.

Phoebe was married to George Washington Lovejoy. They lived in Grafton, Oh in 1850 where they have a daughter born, and by 1873 when another daughter is born, they lived in Niles MI. In one of the Censuses, it shows Mary Almira as the step-mother, living with them. Truman also lived in Michigan.

I'd like to add and correct some information in my 4 Aug 2009 posting about the JADWIN Surname.

Correction: Renselaer's DOD is not 1871. After finding his Last Will & Testament, he died somewhere between 31 Dec 1876 when he signed a codicil, and 24 Apr 1877, when the will was probated.

Addition: Renselaer JADWIN and Lydia LOOK had a daughter Melvina A., born prior to Truman and Phoebe. She appears on the 1840 Grafton Ohio Census in the 15-20y column. This places her birth ca. 1821-1825. I don't know the date of her parent's marriage. Melvina married David A. Rawson, 1 Jan 1845. This appears to be his second marriage. David is buried in Nesbitt Cemetery, but I can't find where Melvina is buried.
