DaughterMaria Royce (b. 13 June 1796, d. 11 September 1860)
SonWilliam Royce+ (b. October 1804, d. 16 October 1864)

Biography

NoteThis man is based on the Cemetery Abstracts, New York State, collection on the NYG&B website, from their volume "Hillside Cemetery, Peekskill NY, Inscriptions prior to 1888, Volume 1 (Westchester County)" which lists a burial for Elizabeth, wife of William.

This may be the correct father, because this family had a son William who also had a son William.
Birthabout 1770William Royce was born about 1770.
Marriageabout 1792He and Elizabeth Sr. were married about 1792
Census-not found1800William has not been found on the census of 1800 Cortlandt Town, Westchester County, New York, Scrolled through all 10 pages of 1800 census, no Royce.

Likewise, no Royce's in Greenburgh, New Castle.

There are three "Royce" names in Mount Pleasant for 1800. Mount Pleasant incorporated after the Revolution, when the Philipseburgh Manor was broken up and sold. It included Ossining (originally Sing Sing) until 1845. Sing Sing (named after an early Dutch family Sint Sincks) was chartered as a municipality in 1813 and renamed Ossining in 1901.

Allen Ryce: One male 26 - 45

Abraham Royse:
One male 10-15
One male 45 and over
4 females under 10
1 female 26-44
1 female 45 and over

In this case, Abraham and his wife could be the grandparents of the young girls, with their father already deceased, or Abraham's wife could be the female 26 - 44 and the older female could be the mother of one of them.

John Royce:
One male 10-15
One male 16 - 25
One male 45 and over

One female 16-25
One female 45 and over

If we create a hypothetical family for Elizabeth Royce with sister Maria and brothers John and William, as of 1800 we would have 2 girls under ten and one boy under 10. None of these families fits that pattern.

This census is alphabetical for Mount Pleasant.
Deathbefore 1810He died before 1810 In the 1810 census his wife is the head of household.
