Note Who was Joseph's wife?
Thru the years there have been many questions about who the wife or wives of Joseph DeSilva was/were. There are numerous possibilities as listed below:

1. Margaret ???? - Gilboa, NY Cemetery records call her Margaret and give her date of birth as 1755. Joseph DeSilva's Pension Application in 1821 he says, "...my family consists of myself and wife of about seventy two years...". Information from researcher Alan DeSilva indicates the name Margaret is written in pencil in the margin of the document and in a different handwriting than the original. He proposes that perhaps the penciled name was influenced by the Gilboa cemetery records. A Margaret ??? DeSilva was removed from Old Gilboa Cemetery by Grace Dudley Putnam (a great-great granddaughter of Joseph DeSilva) and reinterred in the new Gilboa Rural Cemetery where she is listed as DeSilva, Margaret.

2. Margaret Wood - Dwight DeSilva in his History of Joseph DeSilva shows this name as the wife of Joseph.

3. Margaret Compton - In "Some of the Descendants of Johann Peter Kniskern of Schoharie County NY" by Walter Walter Hamilton Kniskern, 1960 the author says of Anna Compton, "She was sister of Margaret who married Joseph de Silva. This establishes the Margaret ??? as Margaret Compton. He also provides the following taken from the flyleaf of a book owned by Anna Compton. "Anna Compton bought this book Dec. 7, 1791 before her marriage to Peter Kniskern. She came from Patterson, NJ with her sister and brother-in-law Don Jose desilva. She became acquainted and married Peter Kniskern.... Don Jose desilva was stolen by the British in the old revolution when only 8 years old and was brought up by Governor Bloomfield".

4. Hannah ??? - Born 7-Sept-1755 according to the DeSilva-Williams Bible.

5. Hannah Compton - In the Reformed Dutch Church of Blenheim records transcribed by Vosburgh show a 1794 baptism for Anne DeSylver, daughter of Joseph DeSyler and Hannah Compton.

6. Margaret Caroline Sternbergh/Sternburg - The DAR application of Irene Herdman Blass name Joseph DeSilva and Margaret Sternburgh as the parents of 4 sons: Ira, Abner, Joseph II and Archibald. (This is the only appearance of Archibald in any record located to date (2004).

Thanks to Joan Hess Mullin for organizing this information.

 
Note* Children of Joseph DeSilva, Sr.

Various records and sources provide many different lists of the children of Joseph DeSilva.

Dwight DeSilva in his "History of Joseph DeSilva" written in 1919 lists 3 sons by Margaret Woods.
Ira
Abner
Joseph, Jr.

The DeSilva-Williams Bible show the following children by Hannah ????:
Ohannah (perhaps Johannah with the 'J' missing?)

Abner
Mary and Johannah (Twins?)
Mary
Joseph, Jr.
Hannah (Twin (to Joseph, Jr.)
(There is no mention in this record of Ira supposedly the first born son of Joseph, Sr.)

Then there is Anne. Baptised 4 May 1794, according to the records of Reformed Dutch Chuch of Blenheim, daughter of Joseph DeSilva and Hannah Compton. Anne's birth record was spelled 3 different ways in different records: Desylvi in the LDS records, DeSylvi in the Vosburgh records and Desyler, again in the Blenheim Reformed Dutch Church records.

Hannah Sylva, found in the LDS records and the Blenheim Reformed Dutch Church records, who married Abraham Fuller on 14 Nov 1808.

Mary II ? - ( A second Mary?) who married Johannes Slaght and 2 children baptized in the Middleburg Reformed Dutch Chuch.

The above names are certainly tentative. The similarity of some of the names (Anne, Anna, Hannah and Johanna) indicates they may have been used interchangeably in various records. Until further research provides us with more definitive information there will probably be endless discussions and debates about who the children of Joseph DeSilva really are.
