The History of Otsego, NY Middlefield Pioneers: Among other old settlers were the following: Jeremiah Irons.

In the 1800 Census, Samuel Irons has one son living in his household between the ages of 16-26.  I assume this to be Daniel Irons only because he shows up in no other census.  Documents have him marrying Maria Atchinson (some say Atkinson) as early as 1798 and as late as 1802.  If this is Daniel in the 1800 Census, he is not yet married, because the other female is older and Maria was born about 1780.

We come up with a different birth date than most for their (Daniel & Maria) son
Eseck.  According to Eseck's stone he died at age 75 years, 6 months and 19 days in 1778.  That would make his birth date January 6, 1803.  If born in 1803 his place of birth would be Richfield, Otsego Co., NY.
