BRUNDAGE/COLLINS; Orange Co., NY; 1750-1850

Q. Who were the parent of Solomon and Mary (COLLINS) BRUNDAGE of
New Windsor and Newburgh, Orange Co., NY?

Solomon BRUNDAGE, possibly the son of a Benjamin BRUNDAGE, was
b. in [Orange Co.?], NY (Census Records) on 29 August 1763; he died
at [Fayetteville, Onondaga Co., NY] on 7 August 1831 at 11:15 pm.
Solomon was m. at New Windsor, Orange Co., NY on 14 April 1787 to
Mary COLLINS of Orange Co., by a Presbyterian Minister, John Close
(New Windsor Sessions Book: Marriages). Mary was b. in [Orange
Co.], NY (Census Records) on 16 May 1768; she died probably in
Orange Co. on 12 October 1848.
Nothing is know of Mary (COLLINS) BRUNDAGE's ancestry. Based
solely on the fact that Solomon and Mary named their eldest son,
Isaac BRUNDAGE, perhaps Mary was the daughter of a man named Isaac
COLLINS. An Isaac COLLINS of Newburgh, Orange Co., NY was the
instructor of the Warwick Cornet band (History of Orange Co., p.
519).
Following his Revolutionary War service, Solomon remained in
Orange Co. In the 1790 and 1810 Federal censuses, Solomon was
residing at New Cornwall, Orange Co., NY. In 1820, he was a
resident of Newburgh, Orange Co., NY.

Children, probably all b. in Orange Co., NY:

i. Isaac [Johnson], b. 16 Sep 1789.
ii. Martha, b. 22 Aug 1791.
iii. Benjamin S., b. 19 Sep 1793; m. Charity LANNING.
iv. Eliza, b. 12 June 1796.
v. John, b. Orange Co., NY 16 March 1799; m. Jemima
KNIGHT.
vi. Abby Ann, b. 14 Oct 1801.
vii. Jane, b. 14 July 1805.
viii. Alexander D.N., b. 28 May 1808; m. [Margaret
MCDONALD]; resided in Newburgh, NY in 1840.

I am seeking all genealogical and biographical details for the
family documented above including their ancestors, children, and
grandchildren and the spouses thereof, including the full names of
those spouses' parents. All additions and corrections, however
speculative, will be greatly appreciated.
