• Occupation: Farm Implement Dealer, Albany, Whiteside, IL.

• Obituary: Obituary Charles C. Byers, Dec 1908, Albany, Whiteside, IL. 7 City Clerk Charles C. Byers, a local insurance agent and prominent citizen, met with death at an early hour Monday morning, at his residence at the corner of Church and Cedar streets, from the explosion of a can of kerosene.

Mr. Byers thinking that the fire in the stove of the living room, which adjoins the family bedroom, had gone out and that the temperature was too low for the welfare of his convalescing wife and two weeks old babe, got up in his night clothes to replenish it, the fire appearing to be dead, he brought a partially filled can of kerosene and poured a small quality on the ashes, then holding the can in his left hand he struck a match and threw it in the stove, and it is supposed the gas generated in the stove flashed out ignited the oil in the can ... at once there was a terrific explosion which threw oil over the room and saturated the clothing of the unfortunate man and he was enveloped in flames. The first effect of the explosion was to render his hands useless, and finding efforts to open the front door to be useless he ran back through the flames around the stove to a back window in the kitchen and kicking out the lower pane managed to squeeze through the narrow aperture into the back yard, where with agonizing scream, he writhed in his fight with the devouring fiend until his scant clothing was completely consumed. M. S. Rosenkrans, whose dwelling is but a few steps away, heard the cries but a moment after the explosion and ran to the rescue bare -footed and in his night clothes, but the horrifying moments fled do fast that he reached the sufferers side only in time to conduct him across the street to Dr. Robinson residence, and hurry back to fight the fire that had gained some headway in the building.

Meanwhile Mrs. Byers seeing the only door leading from her bedroom chocked with flames, gathered her two children in her arms and leaped from the window, the distance was but a few feet and alighted safely - escaping the fire with her hair singed and the babe's face slightly burned, she was immediately joined by her attendant, Miss Maude Thomas, who had escaped from her upstairs bedroom by the stairs and through the back door of the kitchen, when they hastened across the street to the home of Mrs. Byers' sister, Mrs. Will E. Wood.

One of Mrs. Rosenkrans' fast acts was to send the emergency call in to Central, and the alarm was soon spread. Mrs. Rosenkrans, although in delicate health, bravely pumped water from the cistern, while her husband carried until the threatening fire was subdued, with little property loss.

When the blackened, scared nude apparition of a man entered the Robinson home the stout hearted doctor was appalled, but summoning Dr. Dimond to his assistance, they did everything possible for his relief, but they all realized from the start that the end was at hand; and Mr. Byers, after being assured of the safety of his loved ones, began calmly and methodically to arrange his business matters, which was done with a deliberation and clearness that astonished the many friends who had gathered at the bedside - astonished at the will power that held the excruciating pain in check while dictating his unfinished affairs.

Mr. Byers' premonitions were correct, and after four and a half hours of acute agony the relief came.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Charles Chamberlain Byers was born May 25, 1873, on a farm in Newton Township, about 5 miles east of Albany, and died in Albany December 21, 1908. (note, he was actually born in Newton TWP, Cumberland Co., PA)

He was the sixth son in a family of nine children born to Jacob S. and Elizabeth C. Byers; the former passed away eighteen years ago, while the mother and eight other children live and were present at the burial of the first one of this large family to be called -- mingling their tears with those of the stricken widow and children. The brothers and sisters in order of their ages are: John, of Coleta, Ill.; Rev. Harvey, of Garfield, Kans..; Rev. Willis, of Severance, Kans.; Benjamin, of Powhattan, Kans,; Mrs. Anna Rennecker, Mrs. Lydia Hege, Stacy, all of Albany, and Jesse of Clinton.

Charles was married June 18, 1902 to Miss Harriet Smith of Albany, to which union was born three children, two of whom live, Catherine aged 5 and an infant son.

The funeral services were held at the Will Wood home Wednesday morning, December 23, all the business houses of the village being closed during the solemn hour, under the auspices of the Knights of Pythias, and were conducted by Rev. McMacken of the Presbyterian church, who delivered an impressive address. The services were largely attended -- about 50 Knights and the Village officers leading the long precession to the grave in Oak Ridge cemetery.

Charles married Hattie May SMITH 8 on 18 Jun 1902 in Albany, Whiteside, IL. Hattie was born on 23 Nov 1876 in Albany, Whiteside, IL 8 and died on 29 Aug 1955 in Albany, Whiteside, IL 8 at age 78.

Marriage Notes: "Byers-Whittaker.

At the Presbyterian manse in Albany at 6 o'clock Friday evening, Dec. 17, 1915, the marriage of Mrs. Hattie Smith Byers of Albany and Mr. Elmer Whittaker of Haskel, Okla., was solemnized, the bride's pastor, Rev. T.J. Clagett, officiating. This was a very quite affair, only the immediate relatives being in the secret.

The bride's wedding gown was of Alice blue messaline with trimmings of white-silk and lace and she wore a hat to match. The bride has lived here all her life, was educated in the village schools, first married here, children born here, left a widow after a brief married life and has been a brave and faithful mother winning and retaining the respect of all. The man of her choice is not known to Albany people, this being the first visit; their acquaintance having commenced while the bride was visiting her sister in North Dakota a few years ago. He is a pleasant appearing man and will doubtless make a good husband. They are at home for the present in Mrs. Whittaker's residence on Church and Walnut but will probably return to Oklahoma in the near future. Post-nuptial dinner party will be given for them Christmas at the home of her sister, Mrs. W.E. Wood, to which the brothers and sisters will be bidden." 9

• Obituary: Oct 1919, Albany, Whiteside, IL. 9 The obituary has no source, and is as follows:

"Again has a home been robbed of its dearest treasure the comforter and advisor, the sunshine and one who never failed her family, neighbors and friends in rejoicing or sorrowing with them. Elizabeth Catherine Salehamer Byers, who was born near Newberg, Cumberland county, Pa., Aug 15, 1841, and passed to her reward at her home near Albany, Ill., Oct. 19, 1919, aged 78 years, one month and 24 days.

On Dec. 25, 1860, she was united in marriage to Jacob S. Byers at Chambersburg, Pa., and shortly after their marriage they were converted and united with the United Brethren church both remaining faithful and loyal to God and the church to the close of life.

Nine children were born to this union, seven sons and two daughters, all growing to manhood and womanhood. One son, Charles, met a tragic death in Albany 11 years ago, the husband and father passing on Feb. 17, 1891. The remaining children are: John of Coleta, Ill.; Harvey of Geneseo, Kans.; Willis of Kansas City, Kan.; Mrs. Anna Rennecker of Albany; Benj. of Mercedes, Tex.; Jesse of Clinton; Lydia and Stacy at home all of whom; with the exception of Benj., were present at the obsequies.

There also remains to morn the loss of a loving grandmother, 21 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren; also four brothers and two sisters, one in Illinois and the others in Pennsylvania.

The funeral services, while exceedingly sad, were also beautiful, the life of the departed having been too beautiful that nothing but lovely and comforting things could be said of her. After a short service at the home the funeral cortege of relatives and friends came in to Albany to the Methodist church where a great number of the townspeople joined them to pay the last tribute of love and respect to Mother Byers> Rev, Bohn, paster of the Presbyterian church of Gardenplain read the scripture lesson and offered prayer, the choir composed of Mesdames Dimond and Daw and Messrs. C. A. Olds and M.S. Rosenkrans sang to Mrs. C.C. Ewing's accompaniment, a number of the favorite hymns of the loved one. Rev. Grace Smith Lutts of Mt. Carroll spoke so tenderly and affectionately of the one who been as a mother to her in her girlhood and voiced the sentiment of all when she said never had she known a mother who had such devotion and loving care from her children. Interment was made in the White church Cemetery in the family lot. The flower laden ed casket with the beloved form was borne to its last resting place by the following friends: C.E.Peck, A.J. Beardsworth, E.C. Lewis, W.E. Rowland, A.J. Huggins and Edward Coffey."

Lydia married Jacob SAILHAMER 31 59 in 1838. Jacob was born on 29 Jan 1816,31 died on 14 Jun 1898 in , Franklin, PA. 59 60 at age 82, and was buried in Lurgan, Franklin, PA..61 62

12. George Washington SMITH,69 son of Andrew SMITH, IV and Sarah HART, was born about 1785, died on 15 Mar 1857 about age 72, and was buried in Harbourton, Mercer, NJ.

General Notes: George's birthdate is given as 1790, but his mother Sarah Hart died in 1789. His daughter Sarah was born in 1805 ... making him 15 years old at the time. The 1850 census lists his age as 65, which would give his birthdate of 1785. This seems to be a more probable date.

Research Notes: The following e-mail message was from David Blackwell, an expert on Hopewell, NJ: [BlackwellsIsland@aol.com]

"Hi Carol:

I do have some data on your man, G. W. Smith. I have a few deed transcriptions that will tell where he lived, and who his brother and father were, as I recall. I'm at my office right now, so I'll have to look at this more in the next few days at home. He lived two farms north of Harbourton, and the farmstead on the property can't be seen from the road. Off hand I believe his brother was Nathaniel on the adjacent farm to the north. That house I've been in, and its a great example of our local post revolutionary "Federal" farm houses.

One of the Andrew Smith's was an early owner of about 500 acres that started east of Harbourton. Adjacent to that property on the east were Charles Smith and Thomas Smith, the one who went to NC. William and Jonathan Smith owned land to the morth of these tracts in the uppper corner of the Twp above Harbourton. In all a couple thousand acres at one point.

Your ancestry will be within this context. I'll see what else I have.

David "

"Hi again:

There are two genealogical works that we turn to first for our area: Ralph Ege's "Pioneers of Old Hopewell" and Rev. Cooley's "Early Settlers of Trenton and Ewing". The first is a pretty well researched secondary source, and the second is a sometimes maligned compilation of family oral history, including mistakes and confusions, but often pointing in the right direction.

Cooley has a brief history of the Andrew Smith family, because the early Andrew Smith bought land in "Hopewell" in 1688 at a place now in Ewing Township. Cooley says:

George W., by his first wife Mahala, daughter of Samuel Ege, had children: Benjamin; Sarah, wife of John Atchley; Mahala married Joseph Rue Sexton, and moved west; Alfred; and Andrew Evans. By his second wife Phebe, daughter of John Smith, a son, George.

Nathaniel, married Eleanor, daughter of Jonathan Stout, and by her had Jonathan; Wellington; Sarah, wife of Humphrey Hill; Andrew; Alexander; Ralph, married Catherine Baker; and Joanna.

On pages 85/86 of Ege, he gives the Cordova marriage of Sarah Marshall, born 1826, to J. Evans Smith, son of George W. Smith, Esq., of Woodsville, NJ. Their children were Phebe, Ella, Julia, Judson, John, Alfred, Jacob, and Elizabeth.

I hope this is new to you,you may already have seen this. Unfortunately, there is confusion in the two accounts on Andrew Evans vs. J. Evans Smith. In any event, at least the Sextons and Evans Smith of George's family went to Cordova, and the name Alfred appears.

There was an Andrew Stout among Nathaniel Smith's in-laws who could be the source for Nathaniel's son to be Andrew S.

Ege says the Hopewell caravan left NJ in the Spring of 1838 and took 53 days to get to the Mississippi. There was a national recession beginning in 1837, so whatever the reasoning, it must have been a financial choice to try farming in a new developing area, and to leave NJ behind.

Ege is pronounced with long E's and a hard G. Hope this helps, and I can find more.

Best,
David "

05 Feb 04, More from David Blackwell:

"Carol: I guess I should have asked what you already had. Let's move on. I abstracted four deeds concerning G.W. that will at least give you a date when he was already married to Phebe. Reference is to Hunterdon County Deeds in the Hall of Records in Flemington, NJ, by Book and Page

33-382 8 Mar 1822 Whereas Andrew Smith, Sr., dec. by will dated 16 Oct 1784 devised to son Charles a parcel purchased of Jonathan Smith, Taylor, for his support for his lifetime, and after his death to go to son Andrew Smith and his heirs, and whereas Andrew Smith,Jr. had sold this probably to William Houghton verbally, on the dte captioned, George and Phebe Smith,and Nathaniel and Eleanor Smithgave the deed to Wm. Houghton. (It appears that Charles Smith's abilities were limited, and he probably rented this farm out for an income, and it was assumed he would not survive to old age. The land lay across Harbourton - Rocktown Road on the north edge of the village, and bordered G.W. Smith on his south side. - DLB)

37-374 15 May 1824 George W. Smith & Phebe to Benjamin Quick 54 acres that G.W. had purchased from Benjamin Quick in 1820. (Land was adjacent to G.W. on North, and to Nathaniel on West. - DLB)

53-208 31 August 1832 George W. Smith to Nathaniel Smith. Quit claim for 200 + acres which was part of the previously undivided land they inherited from their father.

53-543 15 January 1833 Nathaniel Smith and wife Eleanor to Jonathan Hunt. (Appears that Nathaniel had plans to move, and so separated his land from his brother in the summer, and sold the next January. - DLB)

Hunterdon County Marriages - Deats You've probably seen this.
Nathaniel Smith married Eleanor Stout January 9, 1809, Rue.
Joseph Rue was the Presbyterian minister at Pennington. I looked at the Presbyterian congregants list, and I didn't find your Smiths. I have the Baptist membership also, so I will look at that soon. It has about 50 marriages in it, and gives memberships / withdrawals, etc.

Beyond this stuff, there would of course be a will at the New Jersey Archives in Trenton, which might mention the residence of a son Andrew. There might also be a Probate file with more than the will in the Mercer County Surrogates office, though these records are hit and miss. Also in Trenton. And there will be a deed of sale of G.W.'s farm at the Mercer County Clerk's office. If the heirs sold the farm, they will all be named with place of residence. That's also in Trenton. I checked the 1875 map last night - it had E. Mershon on the property. We have an 1849 and 1860 map as well. I'll check these next to see what names appear. We could send you our four maps from the Historical Society for $12.

Mercer County was formed in 1838, and took Hopewell Township with it. Any references you have to G.W. holding office in 1838 and after should read Mercer rather than Hunterdon.

General Notes: As was the custom in those days, those who could not afford the fare were sold as "indentured servants", to anyone in the New World willing to pay their passage, usually for a period of seven years. Nicholas and Elizabeth were in the debt of Michael Smith of Philadelphia and they resided there until Nicholas' enlistment into the service.

At the outbreak of the War for Independence Col. Proctor paid the indentured debts for many men with the provision that they serve with his unit[ thi has not been verified]. Nicholas enlisted in July of 1777 at Philadelphia. He served in the Company commanded by Captain Bartholomew Von Heer and Captain Robert Coltman (or Coultman), part of Col. Proctor's Regiment in the Army commanded by General George Washington as a artillery gunner. This was the same unit that the now famous "Molly Pitcher's" husband served with in New Jersey.

He was with that Army on September 11, 1777 at the Battle of Brandywine Creek in Pa. The Army was soundly routed by the British Forces in that engagement. Had the British chosen to pursue the retreating American Army it would have resulted in a complete defeat. As it was Washington had time to regroup. It is reported that Nicholas received a commendation from General Washington. In their haste many of the retreating soldiers had deserted their weapons. Nicholas had escaped with his cannon, with were in short supply. The British had captured the bulk of American cannons in New York during battles in August through October 1776.

On October 4, 1777 Nicholas was with Washington's reorganized Army that attacked Germantown (now part of Philadelphia) It was a daring plan that was poorly executed, due in a large part to a dense fog that hung over the area and made visibility difficult. The American Forces withdrew without taking Germantown.

On December 19, 1777 Washington took his 11,000 man army to Valley Forge, 22 miles northwest of Philadelphia on the Schuylkill River, to spend the winter. Nicholas was with the army at that time. It was an unusually harsh winter and the army suffered from the bitter cold, lack of clothes and semi-starvation, however there was time to train what had been a poorly trained army. On June 19, 1778 Washington broke camp at Valley Forge and attacked the British in Monmouth, New Jersey on June 28, 1778. The British retreated to New York and never posed a great threat in the North again. It is most likely that Nicholas was with the army at that time also. Nicholas was discharged from active service in March of 1781 at Trenton, New Jersey.

In 1794 the Federal Government placed a tax on liquor in order to raise funds to repay the National Debt. The farmers of Western Pennsylvania, who distilled and consumed whiskey in prodigious amounts, rebelled and attacked the federal tax collectors sent to collect it. In July of 1794 about 500 armed men burned the home of the regional tax inspector. George Washington ordered the men to return home and called up the Militia from four states to quell the disturbances. After fruitless negotiations Washington sent in federal troops and the uprising was quickly put down. It was a small event, notable only because it was the first time Federal troops were used within a state to enforce a federal statute.

Nicholas took part in the "Whiskey Rebellion", though it is unclear if he was part of the militia or the rebels. At any rate, while he was away, his son Jacob was born. His house in Middle Springs was also burned and the family bible, his military records and other papers were destroyed.

He has 3 boys and 1 girl. In 1800 he is in Southampton, Franklin Co. PA. There are 3 boys and 4 girls in the house. In 1810 he is still in Southampton and there are 1 boy and 1 girl living with him. 139
