MYSTERY MONDAY: 3RD Great Grandmother Mary (Hazen) Ogden was an Old School Baptist Lady


Mary Hazen married Gilbert B. Ogden Jan. 11, 1817. Elder Ball, a clergyman associated with the Old School Baptist Church at Brookfield, Orange County, New York, performed the ceremony. (Brookfield would later be known as Slate Hill.)

3rd Great Grandfather Gilbert was a War of 1812 veteran serving with the New York Militia in 1814 as a private. Please see my earlier post titled


If the facts provided by Mary in her application for bounty lands due her from Gilbert’s military service are accurate, she was born in 1801 and married Gilbert when she was about 16 years old. Some Brookfield Old School Baptist Church records exist but unfortunately, Mary and Gilbert’s marriage was not among them.

But there is good news! I was able to locate Mary Hazen’s name in the membership rolls dated Oct. 7, 1815. This would have been a few years before her marriage to Gilbert.

You’ll notice a Mrs. Hazen in column 2. Was she Mary’s mother? Where’s her father?

I didn’t find Mary again until June 7, 1834. Mary Ogden’s name was among the church members. The 5th name appearing after Mary’s was ‘Sena Hazen’. Hmmm, could she have been a relative?

Page 17 of the Articles of Faith of the Baptist Church of Brookfield noted Mary Ogden no longer associated with the church in their Dec. 1, 1849 session. By this time Gilbert B. Ogden had passed and Mary was a 48 year old widow. Great Grandmother was probably living in Sullivan County, New York with her younger children at this date.
