Sylvester Daniel Maltbie (Ezra (6), Zacheus (5)), wrote:
"Father, Ezra B. Maltbie, served in the War of 1812 for grand- father Zacheus--father being only fourteen or fifteen when he en- listed."
James M. Maltbie (Daniel (6), Zacheus (5)), wrote:--
"Grandfather was known and called by nearly everybody, "Uncle Zack." I have forgotten his father's name. I have heard him say that his parents lived in, or near, Lee, Mass. He moved into this State" (N.Y.) "when my father" (Daniel) "was very young, locating in the town of Groton, Tompkins Co., N.Y., but finally moving to Summer Hill, Cayuga Co., where he died.
He was a hatter by trade, and my father worked with him. He used to hunt and trap for furs, and was also a noted fisherman. He was a good singer, genial and a good story-teller, so the young people all delighted to get Uncle Zack telling stories."
In the "Maltby-Maltbie Family History," on p. 330, is a por- trait of Zacheus Maltbie; p. 331, a portrait of his wife, Reunah Burchard; p. 333, portrait of their son, Ezra Burchard Maltbie, and their dau. Mercy Burchard Maltbie, also their son Daniel Maltby and dau. Margaret Ann Maltbie.
Heirlooms of Zacheus Maltbie.
(p. 335) Cherry stand with glass knobs. The cover on the stand is yellow and white check linen--woven by Reunah (Burchard) Maltbie wife of Zacheus. The candlestick also belonged to Mrs. Maltbie. The chair is of maple or birch, with woven cord seat, both later belonged to their daughter Margaret. The walking stick belonged to Zacheus Maltbie.
I have a note that in 1808, "Zacheus described himself as of Locke in the County of Cayuga, N.Y."
A letter from Mrs. Alfred H. Beach, genealogist, of Casper, Wyoming, says: "David Burchard came from Lynighar (?) in 1775. His wife Mercy, is given in records as 'Mahsey'."
