Rouse Northup was born 17 Mar 1734, the sixth child of Nicholas Northup He married Sarah Congdon, whose parents, Stukely and ?? died in her infancy, and she was brought up by her grandparents, in 1755. Nicholas and Freelove Northup deeded to Rouse, 52 acres of land on Boston Neck, in North Kingstown, land once owned by Grandfather Stephen. The Northups were farmers and ferry keepers, and owned the ferry from Plum Beach to the Island of Jamestown. Rouse and Sarah as well as his brother, Gideon and his wife, Avis were members of the original Baptist Church of Allentown and his house was converted into the church in 1782. Sarah died in 1783 and Rouse moved to New York State and died there. He was buried in the old M.E. Church burial ground at Kingston, New York, now Gloversville. There is quite a bit of historical data available on this family and I will be linking in some of these State of Rhode Island records in the near future. Please check back often for updates.
