His mother was 1733 Sara Haus. He was married Dec. 21, 1801 to 1784 Sarah Van Kleek, in Schoharie County, New York. They had these children together: Sarah Livingston (Rhodes) born Dec. 24, 1801, died 1899 Hugh Solomon Livingston born Apr. 3, 1803, died 1869 Jacob J. Livingston born Jan. 22, 1804, died 1883 Harriet Ariantje Livingston (Stevens) born Apr. 22, 1806, died 1859 John H. Livingston born Oct. 17, 1808, died 1855 Margaret Livingston born Aug. 9, 1809, died 1810 Ahasuerus Benjamin Livingston born Jul. 15, 1810, died 1896 Hannah Livingston born Oct. 15, 1812 Mary Livingston born Apr. 9, 1813, died 1813 Stephen Livingston born June 14, 1815, died 1895 Catherine Livingston (Lord) born Oct. 18, 1817, died 1892 Nancy Livingston (Brazie) born June 29, 1819, died 1867 Ruth Livingston (Swatling) born Apr. 5, 1820, died 1897 Elizabeth Livingston (Burton) born Dec. 31, 1822, died 1885 Jane Caroline Livingston (Watson) born Dec. 31, 1822 * Burton Allen Livingston born July 14, 1827, died 1879 Thomas Tobias Livingston born Sept. 3, 1829, died 1917 * Another entry I found showed Jane Caroline Livingston born Dec. 3, 1825 however from reading the listing apparently written by her parents, it seems that Elizabeth and Jane were born twins on Dec. 31, 1822. There are some discrepancies between this list and data I found elsewhere, notably on ancestry.com. At upper right is a photo of the family bible, owned by their son, 1829 Thomas Tobias Livingston and currently in the possession of my cousing, Kelley R. Petrucci. N.B.: I was unable to find any reference to "Brayman's Corners" in either Schoharie County or Schenectady County and I have information that it was in either one or the other. It may also be called "Scotch Bush". Here is a photo and transcription of a page from the family bible, showing names and year of birth of Jacob, Sarah, and their children. Genealogy HOME Search Tool
