Here is a sneak preview of what I am working on: Tidewater
genealogists have discovered a documentable naming pattern in early
Tidewater Virginia (tidewater is north of the James River in those
three peninsula's sticking out into the Chesapeake): the first male
is usually named after the husband's father's father and the third
son is usually the father's name. Names are usually Biblical or
surnames of other people. As far as we know, Nicanor's first son was
William and his third son was Ambrose. In 1704 William Pilkinton was
claimed as a headright (land for bringing someone over as indentured
servant) by Thomas Tinsley in Essex County, Virginia. I have found
several records for this William and know exactly where he lived. In
the mid-1700's there is an Ambrose Pilkinton born circa 1720 in the
exact same area. In the late 1700's to early 1800's there is a
Parmenas in this same area (probably same tract of land). Now, here
is the tricky part: The two names Parmenas and Nicanor are found
only one time in the protestant Bible. They are BOTH in the same
verse in Acts (6:5). I do not believe this to be mere coincidence.
Take this with the fact that Nicanor had a son William and a son
Ambrose and couple that with the fact that a Larkin Pilkinton,
Revolutionary vet of Virginia stated that he was born in Essex
County, Virginia (Nicanor had a son Larkin probably named after this
older Larkin) and the circumstantial evidence points to Nicanor
originating from Essex County, perhaps a grandson to William of
Essex and a son to Ambrose and brother to Parmenas. Still, it is
just a theory and I hesitate to offer it at this time. I finally
received the paperwork from the Library of Virginia. Like most
genealogical documents they are somewhat problematic. The first one
is the estate settlement of Ambrose Pilkington (entered in court at
Tappahannock 15 Dec 1777 ) who died in Essex County on March 9,
1774. There is no will. There were many purchasers. The only three
Pilkingtons named as purchasers were Sarah, Permenus, and 'Icaner'.
The latter name I have examined in detail and am positive that it is
Icaner. I have to assume that this is Nicanor Pilkinton. Both
Permanus and Nicanor purchased coats while Sarah purchased household
items such as bed, pans, beans, etc. I can only assume that she is
most likely Ambrose's wife but of course may be an unmarried
daughter. There are several other men who purchased items and they
may be the daughter's husbands. While this is problematic and not
the clear cut document I was hoping for, I think it lends credence
to Ambrose being Nicanor's and Permanus' father. The Icaner name at
first appears to be a capital J followed by an e or c then
definitely "aner". An examination of the word "Iron" written nearby
on the same document demonstrated that the writer used the same
capital J for his I and his J. I examined the name James also on the
same document and it is definitely different than the Icaner name. I
can think of no other name that fits except Nicanor.
The other paper was the will of William Pilkinton of Essex County

proved in court at Tappahannock on 21 Mar 1748. It is short and
names his "well beloved wife" Appalonia, and three unmarried
daughters : Appalonia, Jane, and Frances. It was proved by two
witnesses:
Isaac Hawes and Ambrose Pilkinton. I am of the opinion that Isaac
Hawes was married to a Pilkinton and that Ambrose was William's son.
Ambrose could of course be this William's brother but the wording
gives me a different feeling. William is "weak in body" which may be
just legalistic wording used in every will but William says that his
three daughters Appalonia, Jane and Frances are to stay on his
plantation as long as they are single and not be "hurried off". This
indicates to me that they are probably old enough at the writing of
the will to be of marriage age. Just speculation of course. If this
is the will of the older William who was born around 1680, then it
indicates a second marriage. The land transactions of William in
1708 name his wife as Ann. Perhaps I will attempt to find some more
information in Essex County.

From aka Jamess
If you go to this fantastic website:
http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/repehtml/repehome.html
You can browse religious petitions from the 1700's in all Virginia
Counties. I browsed through two tidewater counties (King And Queen and
Caroline) that were once a part of Essex County and discovered Nicanor
Pilkinton's signature (looks like Nicanah Pilkinton). The petition was
dated October 16, 1779 and concerned the parishioners' opposition to
dividing Drysdale Parrish which was in both counties. The Caroline
County petition is just a hand written copy of the King And Queen
County petition including the exact same names. The copy verifies that
the name on the first petition is Nicanor (although it mispells the
last name as Pilkerson). This places Nicanor in the Essex tidewater
area where Ambrose was in the 1750's. I believe this helps confirm
Nicanor and Permenus' relationship as well as makes him the likely son
of Ambrose.

I found this in a genealogical publication: "Tidewater Virginia
Families:A Magazine of History and Genealogy" Volume 11, number 3,
page number 169. Virginia Lee Davis, Publisher:
"A Day In Court, Essex County May 1774"
Indictment Against : Nikynor Pilkenton, James Mariner, Jeffery Mariner.
A Grand Jury having found a True Bill against the Defendants, it is
ordered that they be summoned to appear at the next Court to answer
the same and that the King's Attorney prosecute on the said Bill."

No charge is mentioned. I would love to get my hands on the next term
court records! It must not be very serious as the Sheriff was not
ordered to arrest them. It could be sonething like not attending
church. I noticed some other prosecutions for church attendance.
Anyway this pretty much seals up Nicanor being from Essex County in my
mind. It may be why he moved to next county Caroline or to Culpeper.
It is interesting to note that Ambrose died in march 1774. We might
assume that Nicanor is 21 years old here as that was the legal age
then, so that might further narrow his birth date down to between 1750
and 1753. Jim

You are both very welcome. I am thrilled to find this information and
have a lot of fun doing it. Now if I can just prove that the William
Pilkinton who immigrated to Essex County circa 1690/1700 was the same
one that left Liverpool aboard the Submission for a 5 year endenture.
I have not been able to find any evidence that our William in Essex is
the same one, but the William that left Liverpool in 1698 was from
Brindle (in the traditional Pilkington Lancashire area)according to
the ship's manifest and at least one published book lists his parents.
That would take use across the pond so to speak.The problem is,
believe it or not, that at least three William Pilkinton's apparently
immigrated at around 1700 to three different areas of Virginia:
Henrico, Nansemond, and Essex. Add to the confusion the fact that (it
is reported)a person who was already in Virginia could sell himself
into endenture. I am not sure if these latter endentures could be
claimed for the headrights. Also adding to the confusion is the fact
that headright claims were sometimes made many many years after the
endenture was over or sold from one person to the other (I originally
thought there were four Williams but discovered that one of them was
claimed by two men). However, William Pilkington from Brindle left
Liverpool, England (about 20 miles away) in late 1698 (October as I
recall)endentured for five years and destined for Virginia. His
endenture should have ended in about 1703 or so and if my memory does
not fail me, Mr. Tinsley claimed the import of William Pilkinton as
well as many others in Essex County in about 1704. It appears to fit.
I am also tracing down the Isle of Wight/Brunswick/Lunenburg group
that went to Johnston/Chatham/Wilkes counties in NC, which is quite a
nightmare at present. I have traced down all of the lines in Tennessee
and Alabama back to at least 1800. I started doing this to keep the
different Pilkington clans separated. One day we'll get them all
connected somehow. I am convinced that our Essex Pilkintons and the
Brunswick ones are separate groups (which connect way back in England
of course), however they appear to meet in Chesterfield County,
Virginia as I know for a fact that the David Pilkinton there in 1800
or so is from the Brunswick line whereas Larkin is from the Essex line
(in his pension application Larkin claims to have been born in Essex
County, Virginia). So, it is somewhat difficult to divide them up. I
have alot of this information in my gedcom at Rootsweb. I will go back
to digging now... Jim


Here is my Pilkington line from Chesterfield and Amelia Counties, VA,
and I've been in touch with James Pilkinton who has done a lot of
research on these lines and he thinks mine is somehow connected to his
and yours (Nicanor) from Essex County. My Drura (Drury) was involved
in a land transaction with Micajah Pilkinton in Chesterfield County in
1784 and James tells me Micajah was connected to Nicanor and Ambrose
Pilkinton of Essex. I've also included that old land deed for your
info. I'd like to stay in touch just in case James is able to come up
with a definitive link, as all indications currently seem to point to
one between mine and his and yours. Thanks very much for responding to
my query. I just happened to stumble across your email address on one
of the genie sites.

Best,

[NI0136] As most everyone knows, George Washington Pilgrim, Jr., and Isaac Timms Pi lgrim served in the Confederate Army during the War Between the Stat es as did many of our ancestors.

George and Isaac were mustered into the Confederate States Service on
July 11, 1861, at Lynchburg, Virginia. They were members of a group of
men called "Sardis Volunteers". Most members of the Volunteers were
from Georgia, however there were some from other states.

George and Isaac were enlisted in Colonel John T. Mercer Trimble's
Brigade, Ewell Division, Jackson Corps.

This company subsequently became (Old) Company E, 21st Regiment, Georgia
Infantry. It was detached from the 21st Regiment, Georgia Infantry, by
S.O. No. 106, A. & I.G.O., dated May 8, 1862, and subsequently became
Company G, Calvary Battalion, Smith's Georgia Legion. The 21st
Regiment, Georgia Infantry, originally consisted of nine companies and
was known as the 4th Battalion (Mercer's), Georgia Infantry. Captain J.
B. Akridge's Company, Georgia Volunteers, was attached to the battalion
and with the nine other companies constituted a regiment by S. O. No.
144, dated September 5, 1861.

Isaac spent 1861 in Company G ((Old) Company E), 21st Georgia Infantry,
serving under Captains Hood (June-July) and Hart (November-December),
stationed in Richmond, Virginia.

On May 21, 1862, the whole of Company G was transferred to the Army of
Tennessee and became known as Smith's Legion on July 1, 1862 under the
leadership of Colonel Sumner J. Smith. Smith's Legion was also known as
Georgia's Partisan Rangers and was made up of both calvary and infantry
battalions.

In 1863, Isaac transferred to Company G, 6th Georgia Calvary, Iverson's
Brigade, Martin's Division, Wheeler's Corp, commanded by Lieutenant
Colonel John R. Hart and Major Benjamin F. Brown. In Company G at this
time was Isaac's brother George.

While serving in the War, George participated in many battles, most
probably those conducted at the Battle of Seven Pines, Virginia, in
1862; the Seven Days Battle, the Battle of South Mountain, Antietam and
Chancellorsville.

In the spring of 1863, the 23rd left Virginia for North Carolina and
then posted to Charleston, South Carolina, where it performed duty at
Battery Wagner, Johns Island and Fort Sumter. The 23rd then moved south
to Florida and participated in the Battle of Olustee.

After the Battle of Olustee, the 23rd returned to South Carolina and was
then posted to Virginia in the spring of 1864 where it fought at
Drewery's Bluff, Cold Harbor and Petersburg.

On the afternoon of November 10, 1864, the 23rd, under the command of
General Wheeler, attacked a encamped contingent of the Union Army at
Frankin, Tennessee. This attack came to be known as the Battle of
Franklin, Tennessee. The Battle of Franklin, Tennessee, came to be
recoginized as one of the pivotal battles that hastened the end of the
war. The losses incurred by the 23rd and the Union forces during the
Battle of Franklin rendered both forces almost completely ineffective as
fighting units. Several weeks later the 23rd was almost annihilated at
the Battle of Nashville, Tennessee.

George was wounded in the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee.

Shortly after the Battle of Nashville, General Robert E. Lee, realized
that the Southern cause was lost and began preparations to end the war.

The 23rd surrendered to Union forces in North Carolina in February, 1865
and were subsequently discharged in April, 1865, at Charleston, South
Carolina.

On August 10, 1913, George filed a Soldier's Application for Pension for
Use of Soldiers in Indigent Circumstances with the State of Texas. At
that time George was a resident of the Confederate Home in Austin,
Travis County, Texas. He was granted a monthly pension of $50 on
September 1, 1913. George is buried in the Texas State Cemetery in
Austin, Travis County, Texas in the section reserved for Confederate
veterans. One of George's witnesses testifying on behalf of his pension
application was his former Captain of Company G, John R. Lay. The
second of George's witnesses was Curtis Green who originally enlisted
with George and Isaac as members of Sardis Volunteers. After the war,
Captain Lay moved to Saratoga, Hardin County, Texas. Curtis Green had
moved to Oglesby, Coryell County, Texas.

Issac Pilgrim's second wife, Sarah Emmaline "Emma" Powell Pilgrim, filed
a Widow's Appliation for Pension at Camp County, Texas, on July 12,
1911. This application was not approved and she subsequently filed a
second application and was granted a Veteran's Survivors pension under
Pension Number 28792 in the amount of $500 on August 1, 1914.

Testifying for Sarah was G. R. A. Brison who was a recruit of Sardis
Volunteers in 1861. Mr. Brison testified that he personnaly knew Isaac,
commenting "I served in the same company and was in the same "mess" with
the said I. T. Pilgrim for two years". Curtis Green also testified on
Emma's behalf.

When Sarah passed away, her casket, dress and burial equipment was
provided by a firm named Ellis Hardware, Furniture, Gas Stoves,
Undertaker Goods and Farm Implements at Pittsburg, Camp County, Texas.
Her casket cost $200, dress $12.50, hearse $10.00 and equipment $7.50
for a total of $230 which was paid out of her estate.

[NI0222] In an article "An Old And Beloved Town Lungenburg" by Mrs. Leeda Mankin O' Neal, Sidney, AR 72577 she writes:

"Two of the carpenters known to have helped in the construction of the n ew building (school) were William Ragan and E. G. Landers. Joseph Ragan fa ther of William is creditied with much of the work. He hand planed a ll of the inside paneling and ceiling boards as well as the outside weathe rboarding. Planer mills had not come into use....

A cabinet shop run by William Ragan was also something the town was pro ud of. He was a builder of fine furniture of all kinds and it was though t hat he held a patent on a special kind of loom."

"Mrs. Lillie Shannon Smith furnished a list of old settlers of Lunenbur g. They are: Landers, Hinkle, Gray, Carney, Smith (3 sets), Jenkins, Willi ams, Kidd, Darnell, Lacey, Walker, Shannon, Majors, Arnold, Adams, Crai g, Owens, RAGAN, Sims, Rose, Sipes, Sishop, Bland, Dixon, Hannah, Lee, Ric hardson, Bruce, Byler, Haley, Cooper, Marchant, Milligan, Hodges, Twille y, Ward, Wilson, Tate, Banning, Cypert, Denton, Gilbert, Gibson, Gilliha n, Harvell, Horton, Johnson, King, Mankin, Lamb, Mynatt, O'Neal, Phillip s, Pentecost, Wallace, Yates, Meeker, and many others."

"Joe Ragan, (the same old man that helped build the school house) bui lt a four-wheeled wagon that could be uncoupled in the center to make a tw o-wheeled cart for use in small jobs around the farm. When they went to ch urch he put the two carts together and one team pulled the entire fami ly in the coupled wagon.

One day they started to church to hear old preacher Mordachi Halliburton p reach one of his long sermons. Just before they got to church they h ad to cross a deep stream of water. The grown girls were all dress ed up in their Sunday best and riding in the back half of the wagon. Wh en they started up the steep grade out of the stream, the wagon came uncou pled and the back half rolled off down the bank and dumped the three gir ls head first into the water. To them that was a cold sermon."

>From Elizabeth H. Ragan's book:

A letter from the Office of G. T. Ragan, Neoga, Illinois, dated
September 17, 1889 addressed to Hon. John H. Reagan, United States
Senate.

Dear Sir,

My brother, S. R. Ragan of Greencastle, Indiana, had some
correspondence about a year ago with you in regard to a common origin of
our families. I have accidentally come into possession of a picture of
yours in an old number of Frank Leslie's Magazine. The likeness is
almost a perfect one of my brother, R. S. Ragan, in every respect and
his son who left here today verifies my opinion. have you seen the
picture above referred to, and is it a good likeness of yourself? If
the two families are not of the same stock we cannot explain the
coincidence.

Recently I saw an article in the Philadelphia Medical Journal
contributed by J. A. Reagan, M.D. of Weaverville, North Carolina. I
wrote him inquiring as to his antecedents and received a prompt answer.
And he seems to be very intelligent man and can tell more about the
family than anyone I have found. I will quote from his remarks:

"I too feel a great interest in knowing more of the Reagan family.
>From the best information I can get, the family was called O'Ragan in
Ireland . . . See Irish History. After Cromwell's defeat there were two
brothers of the Reagan family, or rather O'Ragan family, that came to
the United States as they were in the rebellion. One of these brothers
settled in Pennsylvania and the other in Virginia. After the
Revolutionary War . . . they were all true Whigs . . . there were four
of the Reagans who left Virginia: one, my grandfather settled in Green
County, Tenn.; one of the brothers settled in Washington County, Tenn.;
one in Sevier County, Tenn., from which family Judge Reagan sprung; The
Virginia family dropped the O' as did the Pennsylvania family. And the
young ones retained the 'e' and added the 'a', while many of the
Pennsylvania families turned the 'e' onto 'a', as they were universally
called Ragans as well as the Virginia family. There was another
brother, a fourth one, as I said the four left Virginia, who settled on
the Savannah River in Georgia. I know very little of the Pennsylvania
family, having never seen any of that family except W. H. Ragan of High
Point, N.C. I know very little of the Savannah branch ... never saw but
one of that family.

"Any information I can give you I will do at any time. I know that we
all sprang from the two families who settled here many hears before the
Revolution. Am next to my father's youngest child and am 64 years old.
Glad you wrote me; the Reagan blood will tell."

I quote this as it seems to be more authentic than anything from any
other source and corresponds with what you wrote to R. S. Ragan. Pardon
me for taking so much of your time, but the matter was brought up by
meeting my nephew from Greencastle yesterday, and I thought I would ask
you for a photograph of yourself, and as some compensation I mail one of
myself.

Most respectfully,
G. T. Reagan


I will try to submit other information from Mrs. Ragan's book as I have
time that is not of a very personal nature.

I will also share some of the other data received from Mrs. Ragan sent
to me in a letter dated August 11, 1977, as I have time. She was a very
special person.

Hospital in Belgium Handles 19,041 Patients in War's Closing Months

Liege, Belgium----A total of 19,041 patients were treated by the 298th Gen eral Hospital during the final eight months of the war in Europe, it was a nnounced recently as hospital personael recounted their experiences duri ng the heavy fighting that led up to the collapse of the "Ehrmacht".

Now serving U.S. troops awaiting redeployment in Belgium and France, the 2 98th weathered the mud, snow and buzz bombs while handling as many as 7 00 patients a day during the crucial battle of the winter and spring. T he entire hospital of 1000 beds under canvas was set up for operation duri ng a two week period last November. More than 600 patients were receiv ed up until midnight on the first day of operation.

In the second month of the hospital's operation the Germans smashed throu gh Allied lines in their last big effort of the war and the 298th met i ts suprise test as patients poured in from the "Battle of the Bulge" eve ry minute of the day while the nights were made harrowing by the continueu al rain of buzz bombs. Although some 3000 V-1 bombs fell in the Liege ar ea during the siege, many of those exploding near the hospital, the 298 th lost only one man during these attacks.

The hospital's facilities were taxed to the limit at times when direct hi ts by buzz bombs temporarily put other hospitals in the area out of operat ion. During one period all water had to be hauled to the hospital d ue to a bomb hit on a water main.

In early spring when the bomb attacks ceased an air evacuation operation w as begun at the hospital air strip and in this way several hundred patien ts were evacuated every day for three months.

Although the personnel of the 298th General Hospital are grateful for t he peaceful routine of operations in the Liege today they can look back wi th pride to their accomplishments during the days when Liege was one of t he most buzz bombed cities in the world.

[NI0333] Margaret died about 6 months after her marriage to Benjamin.

[NI0334] Note: Benjamin was a tailor.

[NI0335] During the Civil War Benjamin Franklin (Frank) was shot clean through wi th a revolver. He recovered and lived a long life.

[NI0336] Ruben was a farmer and also worked at Boone furnace. While serving the ho me guard on Tygart's Creek during the Civil War he recalled how his gro up once accidently shot and killed a 14 year old boy. With heavy hearts t hey had to bare the boy home to a sorrowful mother. In 1869 he sold his f arm at Gesling with plans to join the migration west to Missouri or Arkans as. After a visit however, he changed his mind as the "fever" was rampa nt there and he feared for his family. Instead he and his son Bill boug ht another farm on McDowell Creek. In the 1850 Carter County Census recor ds show that Ruben held real estae valued at 300.00. The 1850 census al so shows that living in Ruben's household were a John McGinnis, age 73 bo rn in Maryland and a Rebecca McGinnis, age 65 born South Carolina. Presum ably, John is a brother to William McGinnis, ruben's father, making John a nd Rebecca, Ruben's aunt and uncle.

[NI0339] David McGinnis and his brother Benjamin bought a tract of land up on Tygar t's Creek. It was part of the Canifax land grant which extended several m iles along Tygert's Creek. The upper end of the land was the best becau se there was more bottom land, so they drew straws for the better half a nd Benjamin was the winner.

The Canifax grant was an old settlement and had been well developed. A go vernment whiskey still stood on the upper end of the property adn there w as a grocery store where the whiskey was sold. Being slave owners, much f arming was done. They probably raised their own corn for the still.

The slave cabins stood at the foot of the hill back of where William, s on of Benjamin, would later build his home. The old rock walled spring c an still be seen and still affords water. Alma Glore, in 1994, said she c ould remember the old rail fence that was built along the section of la nd where the slave cabins had stood.

From the book Westmoreland County and the American Revolution, by Paul Mye rs, published by Clossen Press, 1935 Sampson Drive, Apollo, PA, copyrig ht 1988, IBSN#1-55856-001-7 comes this bit of information:
" Westmoreland County Frontier Rangers"
When nearly daily border depredations by Indians began in 1777, ma ny young men chose to join small ranging companies in preference to the mi litia or to entering the regular service. These ranging companies were co mposed of men who lived cosest to each ranger captain. During the years 1 778-1783 the following men were a few of the most prominent captains in t he ranging service: James Guthrie, Thomas Stokely, Matthew Jack, Michael H uffnagle, James Smith, Joseph Erwin, William Cooper, Samuel Shannon, Samu el Brady, Van Swearingen, _________ Wallace, the Barrs, Col. Wilson, the B rownlees, and the Shaws.

The men mved about Westmoreland County in small parties, generally und er a single officer, seeking out maurading bands of Indian warriors who we re conducting forays south and east of the Allegheny River. Rangers dress ed in homespun, and carried their own rifles, knives and hatchets. They c ould be characterized as "minute men of the frontier," always ready to has ten together for a mission when an alarm was given. It was their du ty to alert settlers when an attack had been made or was anticipated, a nd they were obliged to escort women and children to a place of safet y. As the conflict continued, these men continued, these men becamse so e xpert in this manner of warfare that their natural senses became so high ly developed that they could travel by night like an animal and could dist inguish sounds of danger which were unheard by others. They could endu re lack of food and long forced marches, becoming agile and swift of foo t, as well as deadly with their weapons.

The following list of Westmoreland County rangers and their officers has b een abstracted from undated rosters previously publish in the Pennsylvan ia Archives. These names appear to be the only surviving records of the m en who served in the ranging companies. Names listed appear to be those w ho lived under Westmoreland County jurisdiction east of the Monongahela Ri ver, between the years 1778-1783. The names of over 3,300 rangers are lis ted. Washington County was organized on March 28th, 1781, from "Old Westm oreland County." It is believed that the researchers who prepared the lis ts of the rangers of publication in the Pennsylvania Archives during the l ast century were able to distinguish from the extant records those individ uals who, prior to 1781, lived in what was to become Washington County, we st of the Monogahela River, Washington County has a list of 1,600 range rs to her credit as well."

Francis McGinnis is listed among those Westmoreland County men who we re in either the Militia or the Rangers and had enough time in servi ce to qualify for deprecation pay, Series 5, Vol.4.

Francis McGinnis is also listed The Westmoreland County Soldiers of the Re volution.

The Underwoods took them in a nd did what they could, but the boy died. Bill alway had a high regard f or the Underwoods after that, in spite of their reputation. He and Matil da farmed on Smith Creek, Carter County, Kentucky, USA.

This is a bit of a rerun, just in case I missed someone out there. I'm
researching my husband's grandparents. His grandfather, Marshall LAWSON
passed away in 1998 at 98 years old. LAWSON'S live a long time!! Better
yet, LONG LIVE LAWSON'S!!
Anyway, Marshall was born and lived out on Perryville Road as a child. I
don't know if this is in Mercer Co., KY or not, but it must be close b y. If
anyone knows if this is a different county, please let me know. His mothe r
was from the PEACH family. He married Viola McGINNIS, also born in 1900 a nd
died abt 1985, she also lived out on Perryville Road as a child. After
they married they lived in Harrodsburg, Mercer Co., KY. Marshall retired
for Hover's Food Store as a butcher. Hover's Food Store was on Main Stree t
in Harrodsburg. They lived just down the street from the store. Viola
worked for AT&T in Harrodsburg. They had one child, a daughter, Rena Well s
Lawson, b 1921. If anyone has any info on this family, or anyone who is
searching the lAWSON's, McGINNIS or PEACH family in or around Mercer Co ., KY
please contact me. I don't have much info now, but I plan to get more fro m
Rena by Christmas.
Thanks, Sandy

Sorry this took so long. I probably don't have more than you already kno w.

Hiram Campbell: He died sometime after 1870 and before 1880. I convers ed a little with another cousin whose name of course I didn't write dow n. He said his research had led him to the information that Hiram di ed in a Furnace accident. He thought the name of the Furnace was the "St ar Furnace" and that he might have been buried on the company propert y. I have not been able to verify this or find much on the "Star Furnac e" . There is a lot of info on other furnaces (i.e. Amanda, etc). He w as evidently a highly sought after Furnace man. Hiram was born about 18 24 in Kentucky, probably in Greenup County. That is where his brother a nd his family are buried.

Elizabeth: Died Aug 20 1855. I have seen her tombstone. It was layi ng on the ground on a farm in Greenup co. The owners were not taking ca re of the family cemetery. That was 15 years ago. The stone is probab ly gone now. She probably died from the "Great Flu" that when around th at year. Several other family members died that same year form this flu.

Reuben: Reuben P Campbell. Born in Greenup Co KY; Died about 1884 in Kana wha Co WV. Married Matilda Halbert abt June 3 1877 in Greenup Co KY.

William: Married Harriet Evans abt Oct 20 1874 in Greenup Co KY

Cambridge: Died Feb 1 1934 Greenup Co KY (Kentucky Death Certificates V ol 13 DVol 34 Cert#06274, supposedly buried in the Baker-McGinnis Cemete ry in Greenup Co); Married abt Sep 9 1880 in Greenup Co KY(Greenup Co Marr iage Bonds) Lavina died Feb 10 1940 in Greenup Co (Kentucky Death Certific ates Vol 8 DVol 40 Cert#03890)

George Allen: Born Dec 3 1881; Married Oct 16 1909
Julia Ann: Born Dec 26 1889; Married Frank Weber
Cora Francis: Born Dec 19 1891; Died May 23 1961(Buried on Lick Fork of Pa int Creek WV); Married John Canterbury
Earl: Born Jun 15 1901; Died Jul 29 1974 in Greenup Co KY (Kentucky Dea th Certificates Vol 38 DVol 74 Cert#18969); Married Ellen Johnson

I don't know anything about the infants.

Rufus W:Born Aug 6 1859 in Portsmouth, Scioto Co OH; Died Nov 21 1919 in L atrobe, Logan Co WV; Married Victoria Sullivan Feb 13 1889. Victoria w as Born in 1859 in Fort Gay VA (probably WV now); Died Aug 4 1930 in Ashla nd, Boyd Co KY(Buried in the McCormick Cemetery in Boyd Co)

I show a Hettie Lou Campbell as another daughter of George Allen Campbel l. She was born about 1922. Twin of Genevieve I believe. Died shortly af ter birth in 1922. Buried in the McCoy Cemetery, Eclipse WV.

I hope some of this helps.

apparently dies before 9 March 1848 because on this date his son, Simon

administrator in place of his father Jacob Lakey for the Boater Bales
estate.
The heirs of Jacob Lakey's estate are listed as; Widow Phoebe, Simon

After Jacobs Lakey's death, a court case seemed to develop with Phebe
Hyden, Simon Lakey, John Pack and Ruth, Jackson Hodges and Anne on one
side. Jacob Lakey, Phoebe Lakey and Lydia Lakey on the other side with the
first group seeking 1/4 of Jacob Lakey's land estate for Phebe as a dower,
but the case was dismissed because the first did not prosecute.

In August 1974 Bill and Ruth Lakey and nephew, John Bauman, visited
land once owned by Jacob Lakey and sold as his estate in 1861. The
gentleman living on the land is about 90 years old.
The house he lives in on the hill is over 100 years old. It overlooks
the old foundations below of a log cabin and one or two houses dug into th e
side oh the hill and river where an old flour mill stood. The pilings for
a flour mill dam on the James River were there until a few years ago wh en a
new bridge was built and major land changes made. The river seems a natura l
for a dam and has a very large area where the water would back up causing
an immense swimming area. The place is about 4 miles south and a little
west of Marshfield, Webster County, Mo. This is very heavily wooded lan
Ezra had stated that Simon's land lay about 4 miles south and a little wes t
of St. Louis. We believe Ezra was confused about the name of the town and
the river. This area could be very marshy. It is low sloping hills with
many springs coming out and flowing into James River. The old house
foundations are down among the springs.
There are two cemeteries very close. The Clifton Cemetery where only
one stone is left readable in the old section. It reads; 1st grave 1840
Baby Bales. The Bale's land in the census was numbered on one side of
Simon Lakey and the Clifton's on the other side in the 1860 census of the
area. The other small old cemetery is the Friendship Cemetery, lots of
stone markers but the inscriptions are all worn off.
From descendants of Simon Lakey's brother, Lewis Lakey, we find that
several of the Lakey brothers and sisters came west in a wagon train led b y
Andy Lakey in 1861, probably right after settling their father, Jacob
Lakey's estate.
Phoebe married a Mr. Harrington and went to Washington State. She is
buried in 100F Cemetery, Ellensburg, Washington . The farm that belonged t o
Jacob and Phoebe Bales Lakey is located about four miles southwest of
Marshfield, Webster County, Missouri (LeRoy Ford Lakey)

[NI0990] Isaac Badie Pilgrim, born 29 March 1878, Upshur County, Texas, died 5 M ay 1913 at Scott and White Hospital, Temple, Bell County, Texas, buried Wi llow Oak Cemetery, Upshur County, Texas. He married Noby Elizabeth Turnag e, 6 November 1899, Camp County, Texas. Noby was born 14 October 1881, t he daughter of Isaac Turnage and Lethia Carpenter. She is buried in Will ow Oak Cemetery. Her death date recorded on the tombstone is recor ed as 13 February 1909, however this proves to be incorrect as her younge st son R. E. was not even born at this time. After many years of searchi ng for proof of the correct day, recent information proves that she di ed 13 January 1910. They were the parents of five children, Ester Mae, Hil ler Isaac, Roy Vernon, Raymond Fred and R. E. Pilgrim. Badie has a Woodm an of the World tombstone.

After the death of Noby, Badie ask Dallie and Ada Petty Pilgrim, his broth er, to take R.E. for a while. The remaining children stayed with Badie. Li zzie Sworfford, a niece, daughter of Badie's sister, Florence Rebecca Pilg rim Sworfford, lived with the family for a while until she decided to atte nd business college. According to her sister, Iva Sworfford, Badie gave h er a gold coin when she left. She never spent it and had it made into a ne cklance, which she wore for many years. The necklace is now in the possess ion of Badie granddaughter, Lilma Hart Godsey.

Badie's daughter, Ester stated that he got hurt working at Cope's sawmil l, and that ws the begining of all of his problems. At one time it was tho ught that he died from tuberculosis, but this proved to be incorre ct as he died in Temple, Texas after having several surgeries. Some of t he related families said that he grieved himself to death, as his wife di ed so young, leaving him with five little children to care for.

After Badie died, the children we to live with different family members. E ster went to live with Sam and Sudie Honeycutt Turnage, who was a broth er to Noby. Hiller lived with Willie and Maggie Weem Turnage, Noby's broth er. Raymond lived with Mack and Frances Virginia Pilgrim Stewart, sist er to Badie and also with Charles and Annie Turnage Efurd, Noby's siste r. Roy went to live with George and Allie Lewis Pilgrim, Badie's half brot her. R. E. remained with the care of Dallie and Ada Petty Pilgrim.

WILLIAM REYNOLDS William Reynolds [John2 John1] was born 5 July 1735 in We thersfield, Connecticut, son of John Reynolds and Rebecca Mann. William we nt to Albany, New York, and married Elizabeth Mudge who was born 28 May 17 50, daughter of Capt. Micah Mudge and Lucy Spencer of Sharon, Connecticu t. William and Elizabeth settled at Kinderhook, New York, in 1769 and h ad eight children in that place. They are listed in the 1790 Census at Hud son, the county seat. William was a British sympathizer during the Revolut ionary War and served as a Coronet in Georgia. In 1793, William and his el dest son, William, Jr., went to Upper Canada and after looking around deci ded to take up land in the area along the River Thames, west of what is to day Ingersoll. While in Canada, William, Jr., married Sarah Stephens and t ook up land in Burford. William, Sr., returned to New York and gathered to gether the settlers he was to take to Upper Canada. He received the land g rant "In Council" at Newark (Niagara) in 1794 for his promise to bring set tlers into Upper Canada and for his service on the British side. This gro up left New York and departed for their new homes in Canada in 1796. Willi am emigrated to Dorchester, near London, Ontario, Canada, in 1796. He w as one of the early settlers of the Burford, Dorchester, Ingersoll area a nd was the first white settler in Dorchester. He arrived with Major Ingers oll, who settled at Oxford. Reynold's family at that time consisted of h is wife, two daughters, and five sons. William received 1250 acres for h is part in organizing the settlement. Two hundred acres of land was grant ed to his wife and each of their children. Reynolds settlers were:. Willi am Reynolds Elijah Mudge Justus Stephens Sarah Reynolds John Mudge "Old Mr ." [Samuel] Sage William Reynolds, Jr. Jacob McKay Major Ingersoll Nathani el Reynolds Thomas John Lucy Reynolds Dudley McAfee Richard Reynolds Jam es Scosel John Reynolds Isaac Andrews George Reynolds Dennis McAvay Hen ry Reynolds William's wife, Elizabeth, took up her two hundred acres in Bu rford, Concession 6, Lot 1, and the family resided there until 1799, at wh ich time they moved to the Dorchester area and built saw mills. Copi es of letters written from Burford in 1798 and 1799 show that the wo rk of building and operating a mill was being planned for the land in Dorc hester. By deed dated May 26, 1809, William and Elizabeth, both of Dorches ter, sold 70 acres in the northern part of Lot 1, Concession 6, in Burfo rd Township, Oxford County, to Abner Mathews. The land is described as "h er inheritance" and the deed witnessed by Artemas Rogers of Blenheim, yeom an, and John Fowler, Junior, of Burford, yeoman. Since Elizabeth's fath er was still living, the "inheritance" refers to her interest in the lan ds granted to her at Niagara in 1794 and not to any land actually receiv ed by inheritance. William, Sr., is said to have known Joseph Brant in N ew York and renewed that friendship after he went to Upper Canada in 179 3. William, Jr., was invited to many Indian feasts and was friendly with t hem, although he wasn't above taking violent action when something of h is was stolen. One story, handed down through the family, described how t he Indians with their blankets and weapons would sit on the doorsteps of t he Reynolds farm in West Oxford, not saying a word, but after they were gi ven something to eat, they would leave without a word, but within a d ay a deer or fowl of some sort would be left on the doorstep as payment. W illiam, Sr., died intestate in January of 1810 at Dorchester. Considerab le legal work was necessary before title to the various pieces of proper ty were cleared up and disposed of. The last parcel of Dorchester land w as sold to Thomas Ingersoll in 1850. On September 22, 1810, Elizabeth, wid ow of William Reynolds, of Dorchester, sold the remaining 130 acres in L ot 1, Concession 6, in Burford Township, this time to Jacob Yiegh of Burfo rd. Witnesses were Benajah Mallory of Burford, Esq., Reuben Dayton of Burf ord, yeoman, and Joseph Baker. She removed to West Oxford and resided wi th her eldest son, William, Jr., and passed away at his home in Decemb er of 1810. William Reynolds and Elizabeth Mudge had the following known c hildren: 1. Sarah Reynolds [1769-<1837] never married 2. William Reynold s, Jr. [1771-1871] married 1) Sarah Jane Stephens 2) Mrs. Sarah Eplel in 3) Mrs. Mary Barns 3. George Reynolds [c1774- ] 4.

Henry Alexander Reynolds [c1791- ] married 1) Victo rie Stephaine "Fanny" Descomps dit Labadie NOTE: A Sylvanus Reynolds' fath er owned a mill on Lot 18 or 19, Concession A, in 1810, for in that year W illiam McClary finds his millpond marked on Hambley's chart of 1810. Late r, William Putnam built a saw-mill at Putnamville on Reynolds's Creek. T he CHILDREN of WILLIAM REYNOLDS 1. Sarah Reynolds2 [William1] was born abo ut 1769, at Clyneskill, New York, daughter of William Reynolds and Elizabe th Mudge. She died without issue prior to 1837. 2. William Reynolds, Jr .2 [William1] was born January 1, 1771, nr Kinderhook, New York, son of Wi lliam Reynolds and Elizabeth Mudge. His father was a British sympathizer d uring the Revolutionary War and that may have encouraged the family to rel ocate in Canada, although his William's maternal uncles were of the opposi te conviction. In any event, William was included in his father's gro up of settlers in Dorchester Twp., Middlesex Co., Ontario, Canada, in 179 4. In 1880 Dorchester North was bounded on the south by Elgin County, nor th by Nissouri Township, east by Oxford County, and west by Westminster a nd London Townships. The name dates from the division of the original town ship. The south branch of the Thames enters at a point northeast of Putnam ville, and, flowing westwardly, leaves the township at the southeast corn er of London Township. Several creeks, such as Reynolds's, Dingman's and C addy's Creeks, nearly all tributaries of the Thames, rise north and sou th of the river, while Kettle Creek may claim to have its headwaters her e, the stream assuming river shape at Belmont, in the southwest corner. T he township was first settled by refugees from New York and Vermont. The R eynolds and their group of settlers were the first in Dorchester Townshi p. Among the pioneers who came in afterwards were Abram Carroll, who, in 1 826-27, built a log house on Dundas Street in London; Patrick Heron and He nry Scramblin, the early postmasters; James Choate, Peter Slaight, Abram K ilbourn, Set, Joshua, Thomas and William Putnam, and Jacob Cooley. Willi am Reynolds, who was in Dorchester in 1801 or 1802, in his affidavit, ma de before Samuel Peters, P.L.S., December 11, 1858, while he was a reside nt of West Oxford, says that he came to live on Lot 20, Concession A, Nor th Dorchester, south of the Thames, fifty-six or fifty-seven years pri or to the date of the affidavit, and remembered the old surveyor's po st in the cedar swamp between Concessions A and B, Lots 20 and 21; and al so a post on the bank of the river, between Lots 19 and 20, where a gro ve of wild plum trees was standing in 1858. For fifty years, from 180 8, he was absent from Dorchester and was a resident of Oxford West, a nd it was not until December 9, 1858, that he revisited his old home, a nd then came with Albert Burdick to point out the places he knew. In 18 01 or 1802 William Reynolds was assisted in coming to the township by h is father-in-law, Justus Stephens, and not by Samuel Sage, as the latter a sserted. Old Mr. Sage mowed grass by the acre near Dorchester Station wh en 104 years old. He was paid a small sum per acre, got his board, and o ne quart of whiskey per day. The 1851 census of West Oxford shows Willi am living with his third wife, Mary, and William's daughter, Margaret w ho apparently never married. Both Mary and Margaret were indicated as bo rn in the United States. William's son, David Smith Reynolds, was living n earby with his wife and six children. There was also a Joshua Reynolds, a ge 45, born in Canada, living in the same township, but no connection h as been established. The Reynolds family land transactions are numero us in Oxford and Middlesex County records. On April 6, 1807, William Reyno lds, Junr, yeoman of Dorchester Township, sold 200 acres in Lot 1, Concess ion 4, in Burford Twp., Oxford Co., to John Evans of the latter place. Wit nesses were William McCartney, trader, of Dorchester, and George Reynold s, of Dorchester, yeoman. On June 3, 1809, Samuel Burdick of Oxford Twp ., yeoman, sold 98 acres in the south part of Lot 14, Concession 2, Weste rn Division of Oxford, to William Reynolds, Junr, of Dorchester, yeoman. W itnesses were Henry Reynolds of Dorchester, laborer, Enoch Burdick of Oxfo rd, yeoman, and Caleb Stafford. William is mentioned as a resident of Oxfo rd West in 1837. William Reynolds, Jr., served jury duty in the London Dis trict Court on June 14, 1810, and again on July 8, 1817. Within three yea rs of his settlement, whether at West Oxford or Dorchester, William marri ed Sarah Jane Stephens, a daughter of Justus and Jane Stephens of nearby B urford Township. Jane was born about 1780, probably in Connecticut or Mass achusetts, and died at West Oxford on 13 January 1832. Although William m ay have remained with his father in Dorchester, it seems he might have ma de his way in his father-in-law's family until 1801 or 1802 when William a nd Sarah settled in Dorchester Township. About 1808 they relocated in We st Oxford. After Sarah's death, William Reynolds immediately married Mr s. Sarah Eplelin. The marriage bond was taken out on 9 January 1832. Sar ah died 3 May 1836 at the age of 52. It was just over two years before Wil liam Reynolds' married his third wife, the former Mrs. Mary Burns. Their m arriage bond was dated 18 June 1838. William survived his wives by many ye ars. He died at West Oxford at the age of 100 years and 8 months, on 29 Se ptember 1871, and is buried to the left of his three wives in the Methodi st Church Cemetery at West Oxford. William and his wives had embraced t he Methodist Church perhaps with some influence of William's uncle John Re ynolds who was the Methodist Episcopal Bishop of Canada. William's monume nt in the cemetery was impressive but has since been taken down and plac ed flat in cement to preserve the artifice. His three wive's markers are p lain, simple devices, following in a row side by side to William's left. W illiam belonged to the Ancient Free & Accepted Masons of Canada and w as a charter member of the chapter established in 1803 at Ingersoll. Willi am Reynolds and Sarah Jane Stephens had the following known children: 2. 1. David Smith Reynolds [c1799-1895] m. Lois Janes 2.2. Minerva Reynolds [ c1800/01- ] m. Jonathan Simmons 2.3.

He was ordained a Deacon at Genes ee Conference at Lyons, N.Y., 20 June 1810. Since he was American born, a nd Americans were not much liked during the War of 1812, he withdrew fr om Church activities. John Reynolds married Miss Mary Gilbert of Bellevill e, Ontario, in 1810 and settled at Belleville where he engaged quite succe ssfully in the fur business. In 1824 he returned to the Methodist Episcop al Church in Canada and was made an elder. In 1835 he was ordained Bisho p. In 1837 he was living in Bay of Quinte. John Reynolds died in 1857 at B elleville. 8. Henry Alexander Reynolds2 [William1] was born about 17 91 at Clyneskill, New York, son of William Reynolds and Elizabeth Mudg e.

Note: In addition to being a landowner, Richard
Jenkins was also an overseer of roads, having been
appointed in one of George Garrettson's stead in
November 1733. If Amos was employed by Jenkins, it is
presumed that he worked on some of the roads under
Jenkins authority.

According to an instrument of indenture (a lease
agreement) dated August 16, 1742, Amos leased 100
acres in the northeastern part of Baltimore County
from one Benjamin Tasker at a cost of ten shillings
yearly. The location of this land was on the north
side of Broad Creek at it's confluence with the
Susquehanna River. This location came to be known as
Pilgrim's Rest. The land known as Pilgrim's Rest, was
laid out by survey on October 1, 1739. However, no
records exist to show that Amos actually took
possession of the land. The lease language leads on to
believe that Amos leased the land and was granted the
right to subsequently lease it to others.

as a surveyor. Some Pilgrim surname researchers
speculate that Amos and Rachel moved to Henry County,
Virginia, but no verifiable evidence to that fact has
yet been uncovered.

References to Pilgrim's Rest, Pilgrim's Grove and
Pilgrim's Neighbor can also be found in the Maryland
State Archives (MSA S 1161-1, pg. 82) wherein an
individual named Samuel Henry is referred to. It is
not known just who Samuel Henry was or what the
reference means.

Neither Amos or heis sons appear again in official
records until 1768 in Anson County, North Carolina and
again in 1782 in the Henry County, Virginia Personal
Property Tax List:

"1782 Henry County, Virginia Personal Property List"
Amos Pilgrim, 1 tithe, 0 Negroes, 0 horses, 9 cattle
Amos Pilgrim, Jr. (III), 1 tithe, 0 Negroes, 3 horses,
18 cattle
Michael Pilgrim, 1 tithe, 0 Negroes, 3 horses, 0
cattle
Thomas Pilgrim, 1 tithe, 0 Negroes, 2 horses, 1 cattle
William Pilgrim, 1 tithe, 0 Negroes 4 horses, 5 cattle

C. Adams, (Bassett, Va., 1973) pg. 29. Source: Dorothy
Doyleen Turner, Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Lists Amos Pilgrim, Amos Pilgrim, Michael Pilgrim,
William Pilgrim and Thomas Pilgrim.

Amos Pilgrim III is shown in Surry County in 1786 but
Amos is not. Therefore the assumption is that Amos
died in Henry County, Virginia between 1782 and 1786.

That concludes the list of references for Amos
Pilgrim.

John Dykes is referred to as a victualler. He was a
Londoner and was an agent who contracted individuals
to become indents, apprentices and laborers n the
British Colonies. In the late 17th and early 18th
centuries, labor was a scare commodity in the
Colonies. At least 29 references exist which refer to
John Dykes as an agent for people going to Maryland,
Pennsylvania, Virginia, South Carolina and New
England. In return for acting as an agent to the
Colonies, people like Dykes were either compensated
monetarily or received land grants in the Colonies,
although there is no record of Dykes ever having
acquired land in the Colonies in return for furnishing
indents to employers or land owners there.

Maybe there is something here that is of use to you.

Take care.

Well, Cheryl, here's one little gem from the History of Middlesex county t hat's
relevant. I just received an intact copy of the book today and the re is a brief
mention of Reynolds in Nilestown. I'll try to get that transcribed for yo u
tomorrow. There are several other ODELL biographies as well. Note in the
following that "Nebstown" is an error and should read "Nilestown". This
reference is not known for it's accuracy. I guess they made their best sh ot at
Fanny's surname.

FREDERICK A. ODELL.

Frederick A. Odell, blacksmith, at Nebstown, was born in Lower
Canada, in 1826, and is the son of William and Caroline (Wilson)
Odell. The Odells are from an American family from Poughkeepsie,
New York, and are of German origin. William Odell was born in
Poughkeepsie, and came when a young man to Odelltown. He was mar-
ried there, and became the father of these children : David, John H.,
James, William L., Frederick, Alfred, Adolphus, Johanna, Deborah,
Sarah, Marietta and Amelia. In 1837, Mr. Odell moved to West-
minster Township, and settled where the Warrior Hotel now stands.
Afterwards he resided in London, and then in Putnamville, where he
died. He was a member of the Methodist Church, was a hard-work-
ing, industrious citizen, and in his early days was a man of consider-
able property. He was a man who was upright and honorable in
every respect, and had the esteem of all who knew him. He died at
the age of 64 years. His son, Frederick A. Odell, was a lad of eight
years when he came to this county with his father. He learned the
blacksmith trade in early life, and married Miss Fannie W. Reynolds,
daughter of Henry and Fannie (LaBodo) Reynolds, of Windsor. This
union resulted in the birth of six childrenHenry, Gertrude, Nellie and
Myrett and two others. Mrs. Odell is a member of the Methodist
Church. Mr. Odell has always been prosperous in his business rela-
tions, and is a man of means. His son Henry married Miss Lizzie
Lewis, daughter of George Lewis. Gertrude married Frederick Giles.
The rest of the family are at home. Mr. and Mrs. Odell had the
misfortune to lose one son, Frederick, at the age of twenty-two years.
He was a young man of unusual promise. Mr. Odell is one of the
many intelligent and enterprising citizens of the county, and is noted
for his honesty and integrity.

COMMUNICATIONS.

Communication from Hon. William B. Beach.
Providence, RI, January 13, 1887

Dear Sirs: As requested, I write you my early impressions of Boone Count y. As I am neither historian, novelist, or poet, you must be conte nt if "I a plain, unvarnished take relate," concerning men and thin gs as I now remember them.

In the spring of 1845 I received my license to practice law. My uncle, Jud ge William J. Peaslee, with whom I had studied, advised me to locate in t he "State of Boone." He was then presiding justice in that circuit. Taki ng his advice, the next Monday morning I took a seat in his buggy and in t he evening of the same day I was landed in Lebanon, at the hotel Joseph Fi sh. That night the judge was eloquent in his praises of the future Boone C ounty. It was to be the foremost county of the state in agriculture. It 's swamps were to be drained and thus rendered the best producing lan ds in all the state. It's broad acres were pictured as covered with fine s toc, horses, cattle, etc, etc., feeding upon richest pastures, her fiel ds pouring out their bountiful harvest of wheat, corn, oats, etc. I said b ut little in reply to his fancey sketch, as I then regared it, for inste ad of the future, my mind would go back to those abominable, yes, frightf ul cordaroy bridges, floating in the interminable seas of mud and water, o ver which we had passed from Royalton to Lebanon, with scarcely an intermi ssion of a rod, while both of us were fighting with might and main, arm ed with green boughs, to keep the greedy hoard of flies and mosquitoes fr om draining the last drop of our percious blood.

Morning came, and as we dressed perparatory for breakfast, I could but no te the sad condition of our apparel. Mud and blood gave evidence that t he conflict had been no mere skirmish. Breakfast over, the judge bade me g ood-bye and returned to Indianapolis, first giving me a few words of encou ragement; probably he thought he saw evidence in my countanance of a wilti ng tendancy. I went at once to the "weightier matters of the law," my fina nces. I found $2.50 the amount of available assets, and already one night 's lodging due the landlord. What could be done? The more I pondered the m ore I was puzzled; it was as deep and dark as Boone County mud. I beg an to think my good uncle had been mocking me and was now "laughi ng at my calmity." But that could hardly be, as I felt he wished me succes s, and probably he was only applying the old doctrine, "root hog or die

There is I believe a "silver lining" to every cloud; Saturday night broug ht to me that best of good Samaritans, Dr. James McWorkman. I settled wi th the landlord and took up my abode with the doctor in a small house ju st opposite the Methodist church. I need not tell you the good people of B oone County that he was a specimen of G-d's noblest work. Many of them wi ll long remember his genial face and manly form, and many of G-d's unfortu nate ones, in both Indiana and Missouri, will bless the day when Dr. McWor kman was elected superintendent of the Institution for the Blind in both t hose states. And scarcely with less gratitude will they cherish the memo ry of his noble and devoted wife, who was matron in both institutions. Bo th rest from their labors in honored gravs. I took an office in the northe st room of the courthouse, put out my shingle and waited. After the del ay usual to young attorneys, I recieved my first fee and began to feel qui te well established in business.
At this time there were but three other members of the bar; Jacob Ang le, Joseph E. Hocker and Stephen Neal. The later, however, gave but litt le attention to the law, being mostly engaged in farming. Angle and Hock er were substantial lawyers and valued citizens; both "went west" many yea rs ago. Subsequently, Lorenzo C. Dougherty located in Lebanon and soon aft er became my partner. He attained high standing in the profession and w as honored by the citizens of the county, first as representative and afte rwards as senator. He died in the height of his usefulness. a. J. Boone w as a few years later admitted, and like Dougherty, attained high rank at t he bar. It was my good fortune to know him intimately, and all who did wi ll testify to his high standard of integrity. He, too, died in early manho od. Others also might be mentioned, O.S. Hamilton, T. J. Cason.

The year following my location at Lebanon, feeling that there was a bett er future in store for Boone Co, I began to feel permanently located. I h ad made many valued friends whose memory I shall cherish while reason hol ds her throne. Some I have already named. William Zion, many years a forem ost merchant, Chauncey King, hotel keeper and merchant, Abner Shepard, hot el keeper and tailor, Westley Martin, my partner in the first carding mach ines at Lebanon, propelled with bull power at first, subsequently with ste am. Levi Lane, "honest Levi," as we were wont to call him, long the accomp lished and accommodatin clerk of the court, his brother Josiah, also a mer chant and still another brother Addison, merchant and preacher. He sto od up for me in the most momentous moment of my life; he officiiated on t he occasion of my marriage. Joseph T. McLaughlin, the faithful guardi an of the county funds, William Staton, once sheriff of the county a nd my colleague in the legislature of 1851-2, Father McCann, for years cou nty recorder, whose life was continuing benedictions and whose memory wi ll for years be cherished by all who knew him. His son, Robert McCann, sti ll one of the most valued citizens of the county. Robert Newell, my partn er in a breif mercantile career and as true a specimen of honest manho od as it was ever my good fortune to know. He is now a citizen of Missour i. His son, Olney Newell, I need but name, as he was until a recent da te a citizen of Lebanon, and well known as a gifted writer and genial gent leman. He is now a citizen of Denver, Col. and assistant editor of te Colo rado Live Stock Record. There are many others whom I might mention, but y ou space will not permit. In the fall of 1845, I was invited bo a corn hus king at Uncle Jake Kernodle's. At the time I had but a slight aquaintan ce with him. Of course I attended. A good jolly party it was. Red ears mea nt something to take -- Uncle Jake had ? and that which was good, for he m ake it himself -- apple brandy, peach brandy, whisky and cider. But, Unc le Jake was not the man to permit a too free use of the cup which cheers a nd inebriates, and I do not remember that even one of the party became mel low. I should say, with Bobby Burrus.

"They were not fou
But just had plenty"

The husking over, a bountiful supper was spread and dispatched, and th en on light fantastic toe we chase the glowing hours with flying feet unt il early morn. On this occasion I met his daughter, Sarah M. Kernodle. S he became my wife in the following August. Forty years have passed and we ll has she earned the proudest title due to womanhood, faithful and affect ionate wife and mother. She died November 22, A. D. 1886. Jacob Kernodle s ettled in Boone County in 1836 and remained a citizen of the county, a nd on the same farm, until his death in 1865. His was the model farm of t he county for many years, and until his death. Located one mile east of t he court-house, and having ample room in both house and barn, where man a nd beast found company, especially when the courts were in session. His fa rm consitsted of 300 acres of excellent land, cultivate with great ca re in meadow grain, orchards of apples and peaches. Coming to the coun ty at an early day, when mechanical facilities were poor, he was forc ed to do all such work himself, or go a long way for it. The result w as he became miller, carpenter, wagonmaker, shoemaker and blacksmith. H is great crop of apples and peaches must go to waste or be made into cid er and brandy. He became a distiller, and his peach and apple brandy gain ed a wide celebrity. No farm in the county was better supplied with eve ry kind of farm utensils, nor was there one where they were put to a bett er use. Nothing went to waste. Of course he prospered and became one of Bo one County's most independent citizens. His large family of four sons a nd seven daughters were comfortably provided for as they married and all b ecame prosperous and repected citizens of the county. The only one of t he daughters remaining, so far as I am informed, is Margaret, wife of Capt ain James Bragg, of Lebanon. Captain Bragg, though not enjoying the be st of health, has earned a competency for the evening of his yearfs, and a lso that which is more abiding than worldly possecssions, the respect a nd confidence of all who know him. He faithfull and able served his count ry from nearly the beginning of the rebellion until the return of peace. L et me close this recital by saying, I long since forgave Judge Peaslee f or locating me in the State of Boone County, which he gave me on that memo rable night, has become a reality, and that she stands to-day in the forem ost rank of rich and enterprising counties in the state -- a monument to t he wisdom, intelligence and liberality of her citizens in draining their s wamps, building gravel roads and railroads. By the way, let me claim a mod est share of credit for your railroads. At the solication of you lament ed Colonel Harvey G. Hazlerigg, I make several speeches in the county, urg ing the citizens an the county to take stock in the Indianapolis & Lafayet te Railroad. The county took, I think, $25,00. This was the beginning. I h ope I may again, ere life is spent revisit my old and dearly-loved ho me in Boone County. I know I shall find my many dear friends, to some of w hom I owe much for honors bestowed. Their names are still found in the Leb anon papers, which I see and read with a pleasure. Three cheers for old Bo one.

[NI1553] Jacob Kernodle was among the first to build a brick dwelling in the coun ty on his farm, 1 1/4 miles east of Lebanon, built about the year 1846. J acob Kernodle settled in Boone County, in 1836 and remained a citizen of t he county and on the same farm until his death in 1865. His was the mod el farm of the county for many years, and until his death. Located on E m ile east of the court house, and having ample room in both the house and t he barn, where man and beast found good cheer in abundance. He always h ad plenty of company, especially when the courts were in session. His fa rm consisted of 300 acres of excelent land. Coming to the county at an ea rly day when mechanical facilities were poor, he was forced to do all su ch work himself, or go a long way for it. The result was he became a mill er, carpenter, wagonmaker, shoemaker and blacksmith. His great crop of ap ples and peaches must go to waste or be made into cider and brandy. He be came a distiller, and his peach and apple brandy gained a wide celebrit y. His large family of four sons and seven daughters were comfortably pro vided for as they married and all became respected citizens. Margaret mar ried Capt. James Bragg, Sarah married Hon. Wm. B. Beach.

In 1845 there was a cornhusking at Uncle Jake Kernodle's farm. He had set tled in Boone County, 1836. More is to be found in Dr. Fires book on Mora vians in N. C. published in 1926 and in Albert Laurence Rohrers book on t he Ozias family.

If memory serves, he said he was also go ing to provide copies to some of the libraries, so it may be on the she lf at Lebanon, and could also possibly be in the collection of the India na State Library's Genealogy section.

Anywho, it seems to start with Michael Witt, Jr., born in 1795 in Guilfor d, NC. Michael ended up in Lebanon, died in 1861, and is buried in Ced ar Hill Cem., according to Robert's book.

Mary B. Cason, mentioned in my earlier message this morning, was sist er to Margaret Cason, who married a John D. Witt (1819-1900). John was ev idently the son of Michael and Susannah Wyrick Witt. Hope this helps.

Micheal may have been Sarah Sally Witt's brother...and Micheal and Susann ah Wyrick Witt her parents... Need to prove this.

Found Sarah buried next to her husband Jacob in Indiana/Oak Hill Cemeter y. They are in the 2nd to last section, 2nd right section if you enter ce metery from Main Street in Lebanon, Boone County, IN. Large granite mak er and they are on the other side of the marker with small granite headsto nes. Near by is a maker for Jacob Kernodle, Jr. Further down towards t he entrance to the cemetery is another Kernodle sibling buried. Tri ed to locate Cason Cemetery, it's out in the country on a gravel roa d. It is very, very small.

According to Sarah's headstone she was born in 1790 and not 1787 as previo usly suggested. But, headstones can be wrong, too...

[NI1643] Notes for JOHN WILLIAM LEAKEY:
John William Lakey and his family lived on a rented farm two miles
south and one and a half miles east of Wanette, Oklahoma, on the south sid e
of the road overlooking the South Canadian River. When Lydia died her
husband bought some walnut lumber from one of the saw mills on the Washita
River and made her casket. She was buried on the Northeast corner of their
farm. Less than a year and a half later, John died. He was buried in the
new Sappington Chapel Cemetery. John's brother, Thomas Jefferson Lakey,
moved Lydia's body from the farm to Sappington Chapel Cemetery and buried
her next to John. This is the same farm where their daughter Alice
Richardson was living when the tornado blew everything she had away and
killed Alice's daughter Lizzy Walker on April 9, 194

Lydia died when Henry was five days old. John's brother Thomas and hi s
wife Martha Lakey kept him. Henry lived four months. After John died on
February 23, 1894, Thomas and Matt kept the children for sometime. Bell,
the oldest child of John and Lydia married Will Harvey on October 7, 1894
and took her brothers and sisters to live with them.

[NI1773] Cheryl, my name is Dorothy Timms Cooper from Fairfield County, Winnsbor o, SC. While visiting the US Gen Web project site I saw your querry and po ssibly I might have some info. on your Timms line. Years ago I start ed to research my Timms line; Layton/Leighton/Litton Timms/Tims who marri ed Sarah Minton in the Camden Dist. of SC in the late 1700's and met Mart ha Tunander of Columbia,SC who had a Minton/Sibley/Timms connection. Mart ha has since passed away but her info is in the Minton file at the Camd en Archives which is located on Broad Street in Camden, SC. Are these nam es in your history? Elrod..Quails..Woodall?
Here is an excerpt from her letter of 6 Oct.,1982. Panina Timms B-18 24 Anderson Co.,SC M- George Washington Pilgrim B-1818 in Pendleton Dist. ,SC. They were married ca. 1841-1843 in Cherokee Co., AL. They had a son-- Isaac Timms Pilgrim who married 1st to Hannah Davis--and this marriage to ok place in Floyd Co.,Ga. Martha said,"See--a lot of the above is not docu mented--some is--but so much just doesn't follow through--that I'm not su re if I have all the right data. It has struck me funny that in some of t he census---some Timms families just don't give out the data on their birt hdates to the censustakers!"
According to Martha, Elijah Timms--born ca 1805 or 1807--possibly in Ande rson Co.,SC--Died 07 Feb., 1877 was married 1st--to Sarah (Sally)______w ho was born ca 1805 or 1807 Died sometime between the 1860-1870 censu s. Elijah married 2nd to Elizabeth _____during the last years of the Civ il War.
These are children listed by Martha----Mahala Evline Timms B-1830--Sarah A nn Timms B-1835--Mary Elizabeth Timms B-1838--Frances Timms B- ?----Jes se T Timms B- 02 Aug, 1843--William V Timms B-1847--Panina Timms B-182 4. Martha's information was hard for me to follow, but maybe this will s ound familiar to you...Please let me know if this was what you needed. Ha ve you tried the Timms family Association Web Site? I have a cousin, Spenc er who is participating in a DNA study to see if the SC and other stat es Timms families are closely related. My Great-Grandfather, Charles Tim ms came into Fairfield County around 1820 and the family has stayed in t he Hickory Ridge Community ever since....Thank Goodness.....I hope to he ar from you soon. dottie cooper

[NI2234] In the "Border Cities Star" of Windsor, Ontario, Canada, Dec. 10, 1932, Se c. 3 is this article on our family entitled "FIRST LABADIE, FATHER OF 3 3, HERE IN 1769." "Thousands In Canada And U.S> Descendants"

By H. L. MacPherson, Staff Reporter of The Border Star

"Antoine Descomptes Labadie, who settle on the present site of the Wa lker distillery in 1769, gave this side of the river an impetus in populat ion and industry that it hadn't seen before, and may never see agai n. He was the father of 33 children.
The Labadies in the United States and Canada who can trace their ance stry back to Antoine are thousands in number. His descendants in the Bord er Cities alone, where members of the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh gen eration are living, run into hundreds.
Relatives Galore
Some of the most prominent families here and in Detroit either bear h is name or can claim relationship with him.
Antoine was not the first Labadie to come to the New World or to th is section of it. He, however, was the first to settle in the present Bor der Cities.
He was born in Quebec about 1734, and when 13 years old accompanied h is parents, brothers and sister to Detroit. His father, Pierre was bo rn in France in 1702 and coming to Canada married Angelique de Lecel le in Quebec in 1727.
Married in 1759
Pierre was a farmer and followed this occupation after moving to Detr oit. There, Antoine learned the lore of the soil, and there he married An gelique Campeau, daughter of Nicholas Campeau in 1759.
Ten years later, Antoine decided to step out for himself, so he cross ed the river and took a farm through which the Warkerville-East Windsor bo undary extends today. Part of the Walker distillery is located on the wes terly section of this farm.
Antoine, it may be said here, had more than his share of domesticit y. When his first wife died about 1767 leaving seven children he marri ed the daughter of a Sioux chief and of this union 17 children were bo rn in 17 years.
In 1784 he married the former Charlotte Barthe, daughter of a Fren ch Army surgeon and young widow of a British officer, Lieut. Louis Resum e. Vital statistics subsequent to this event show that the stork made ni ne more visits to the Labadie household.
The grand total of Antoine's three marriages was 33.
Had Grist Mill
Antoine did not stick exclusively to farming after moving to this si de of the river. He operated two mills -- a horse grist mill and a windmi ll. The latter, built about 1776, was a landmark on the river front for m ore than a century. It was not dismantled until 1874.
In edition to this he carried on an extensive trade with the Indian s, with whom he was popular. They called him 'Badishon' and the orig in of this name presents an interesting sidelight.
The Indians were unable to pronounce 'Labadie' so they short en it to the 'Badi.' The 'shon' was added , but its meaning is obscur e. The name Badishon seemed to catch popular fancy among the French settl ers and in time they, too, began to use it.
This name even appears in official documents, Antoine Descomptes obvi ously, did not object to it. Perhaps he was kept too busy walking the flo or with the hordes of young Labadies.
Kept Slaves
Antoine kept slaves but whether he kept them in Detroit or on this si de of the river is a matter of conjecture. Elsewhere on this page is a fa csimile of a certificate covering the purchase of a slave by him for 80 bu shels of wheat.
A free transaction of this certificate is given below: 'I certify hav ing sold and delivered to Sieur Badishon Labadie an Indian slave named Ma nnon for a consideration of 80 bushels of wheat, that he can p ay me as he has it between now or next spring. Given in Detroit the 10 th day of October 1775.'
The certificate was signed by James Sterling, with John Portcous as w itness.
As this side of the river was also called Detroit in those days, t he certificate does not definitely link slavery with the early developme nt in the future County of Essex. However, there is a strong suspicion th at Antoine did use slave labor on his Sandwich Township farm.
Slavery was abolished in Upper Canada by the Legislative Council in 1 793 and gossip at that time had it that this legislation was aimed at Anto ine Descomptes Labadie, who owned a large numbers of Negroes and Indian sl aves.
Died in 1806
Antoine died in 1806, and after this date most of his family mov ed to the garrison side of the river. His widow and son Louis, however, c ontinued his business here. That is they conducted the business with t he exception of the wind-propelled grist mill. In accordance with the ter ms of her husband's will. It was sold to one Lassaline in or about 1806.
In some details, dates given in records of the Labadie family do n ot conform with these listed in original documents that have been handed d own from generation to generation.
Pontiac a Realtor
For instance, family tradition is that Antoine moved from Detro it to L'Asumption in 1759 and settled on the present site of the Walker di stillery. The deed for this farm, however, shows that it was convey ed by Pontiac and another Ottawa chief to Alexis Maisonville, as a 'free g ift on September 18, 1765.
Pontiac had evidently decided to go out of the conspiracy business a nd to do some dabbling in real estate.
The original deed, bearing Pontiac's scrawl is owned by Mrs. V. E. M arentette of 831 Ouellette avenue. A Great Granddaughter of Antoine. T he deed to the farm lot No. 97, part of which is now in Walkerville and pa rt in East Windsor. Labadie's windmill incidentally, is presumed to ha ve stood on what is now the dividing line between East Windsor and Walkerv ille.
In 1769 Alexis Maisonville conveyed this farm lot of L'Aventure Resum e, who in turn sold it Labadie, presumably in the same year. From th is it will appear that the date on which Antoine moved on this side of t he river was 1769 and not 1759.
Records Hazy
Similarly, family records state that Antoine was born in 1744 and we nt to the altar with Angelique Reasume in 1759. According to those dat es he would have been only 15 years old at the time of her marriag e. It is reasonable to assume therefore, that he was born about 1734.
Again, tradition holds that he erected the windmill on his farm in 17 60. As the land was still Indian property at that time and was owned by M aisonville and Resume up to 1769, the assumption is that this mill was n ot built until 1770, at the earliest.
Louis Labadie, who took over the old homestead was the eldest s on of Antoine's third marriage. Little is known about him, other than t he fact he was one of Antoine's family of 33 and was himself the fath er of 11.
One of Louis' 11 children was Charles Frederick Labadie, father of Mr s. Marntette.
Another of Antoine's descendents was Moise Labadie, father of Dan Lab adie, well-known Borderite who lives at 249 Sandwich Street, East Winds or and of Mrs Noe Parent mother of Mrs. E. V. Joinville of 281 Sandwich St reet, East Windsor.
Moise and Charles F. Labadie were first cousins.
Adventurous Spirits
Louis sons were adventurous spirits. Three of them stacked their bel ongings in a covered wagon and headed for California where they are list ed among the earliest settlers in Yuba County.
Louis' brother, Nicholas D. was the youngest of Antonie's 33 childre n. He studied medicine and made his home in Galveston, Texas, where he w as for years a prominent physician. He was a surgeon in the American Ar my in the war with Mexico and saw other active service. Louis went to Tex as to visit him and never returned. He was drowned while on a fishing exp edition at Dallas.
Charles F. was born on the old homestead and as he grew up he develop ed ambitions to be something more than a farmer. When the Patriot's War b roke out in 1837 he was a private in Col. Prince's regiment, but he did n ot remain in the ranks. He won a captain's commission for 'valorous condu ct.'
In 1844 he was appointed deputy inspector and collector of inland rev enue for this district. In the following year he married Susan Janisse, d aughter of Camile Janisse, one of the river front's earliest settler'
Mrs. V. E. Mareniette
Charles Frederick's daughter, Susan Delphine (Mrs. V. E. Mareniett e) was born in Sandwich on the farm just west of Huron line, 75 years ag o. The Ambassador Bridge approach extends over part of this farm.
Mrs. Mareniette, whose husband operated Mareniette's bookstore on Oue llette Avenue prior to his death a few years ago, a business that is sti ll being carried on by members of the family, was the mother of 11 childre n.
Two of her daughters, Sister Mary of Merry and Sister Catherine of Je sus are members of the Dominican Order, Menlo Park, California. Other mem bers of the family living are Ernest V., Amanda, Mrs. Louis Janisse and M rs. Rose Mareniette.
Mrs. V. E. Mareniette is a member of the fourth generation of Labad ie family on this side of the river. The fifth generation is represent ed by Mrs. Rose Mareniette, Mrs. Janisse and others, the sixth by Mrs. Ber nadine Labadie Hogue of Parent Avenue and the seventh by Mrs Hogue's child ren.
Eight Generations
There are many other surviving members of the fifth, sixth and seven th generations. In fact, there are so many that it is possible to name o nly a few of them in this biographical sketch.
Strickley speaking, there have been eight generations of Labadi es in this part of the New World. If Antoine's father is taken as the fir st. However, as this deals with the Canadian history of the famil y, it is correct to begin with Antoine Descomptes, the first Labadie to se ttle on the Canadian side.
Even before Antoine's father came to Canada more than 200 years ag o, there was a Labadie in this country. He married Jeanne Hebert in Queb ec in 1671, and it is through this marriage that the name 'Descompte s' is believed to have originated.
There was a title, 'Lecompts' in the Hebert family and it is assum ed that 'Descomptes' was evolved from it.
It seems, however, that the first Labadie who came to Canada later re turned to France: and it was not until Antoine's father, Pierre, came he re that residence of the family in this country has been permanent.
The Pioneer Spirit
The Labadie women were not clinging vines in any sense of the word a nd a story that illustrates this fact is told about Antoine's eldest daugh ter, Cecile.
She married Augustin Lagrave in 1803 and they built a hotel on the Wa lkerville river front, where all went well until the War of 1812-14 got un der way. Then when Proctor retreated towards Chatham accompanied by all t he men in the community, Madame Lagrave stood on her doorstep and watch ed the approach of the pursuing Americans.
Madame Lagrave wasn't sure how the invaders would treat her and the r emaining inhabitants and decided to waste no time finding out. Armed wi th an improvised flag of truce, she went out to meet the invading army, dr ew the general to one side and demanded protection. She got it.

[NI2235] Another branch, Pierre Descomptes Labadie, was born in 1702, the son of Je an Bapte, of the Diocese of La Rochelle, came to Quebec and married the re in 1727 to Angelique de Lacelle, the daughter of Jacques de Lacelle, Sa vigny Sure-Oise, Disocese of Paris, and Angelique Gibaut, of Poitier s. He came to Detroit and took an interest in the affairs of the colony. T hey had the following children:

and Catishe who married J. Peltier.


He married a second time in 1784 to Charlotte Barthe the widow of Lieutena nt Louis Reaume, of the British army. They had children:
Cecile, who married in 1803 to Augustin Lagrave the son of Antoine and The rese Duberger, dit Sans Chargrin. ;
Felice who married John Hale and had two daughters, Antoinette (Langly) a nd Lizzie(Driggs) ;
Isabelle, married St. Luc Sedillot de Montreuil, one of her daughters, Fel ice married Alexander Chapoton, Sr and a son, Luc married Marie Rober

Marguerite, who married in 1829 to Elias John Swan, of Albany, New York, t he son of Elias and Elizabeth Palmer ;
Elenore, who married first to J. Reid, and second, in 1806 to Jean Bapte P iquiette had two sons, Jean Bapte and Charles. She married a third ti me to Thomas Sheldon in 1825 and had three children:
Thomas, who married Winnie Clark ;
Rose, who married Henry Geisse;
and Alexandrine Macomb who married first to Barnabe Campeau and had 3 chil dren: Charlotte, who died in infancy; Thomas ; and Albert. She married f or the second time to Richard Storrs Willis.

The second child of Pierre and Angelique(de Lacelle was, Alexis was bo rn in 1746 and married in 1769 to Marie Francoise Robert, the daught er of Antoine and Marie Louise Beconon, of Amiens, France. They had 10 chi ldren:

and Cecile who married in 1802 to Pierre LeDuc ;

Notice of this painful event was given in our last. The sad news reach ed us by telegraph, but we were unable to give any particulars. As some a ccounts of his life, particularly his last hours, will be looked for by t he readers of the Advocate, we have prepared the following brief notic e. Presuming that the Bay of Quinte Conference will, at it's next sessio n, appoint a committee to prepare an obituary -- should not a joint commit tee of both Conference be deemed preferable -- our notice will be brie f, as we do not wish to anticipate their action in the case.

Bishop Reynolds was born in Clynekill, New York, not far from the he ci ty of Hudson, Feb 9, 1786. His parents removed from Waterford, a town sit uated on the Hudson River, a few miles above the city of Troy to Canad a, in the year 1796, and settled in Burford, on the Grand River in 1797.

In 1803 when but seventeen years of age, he was awakened and converted und er the labors of Rev. Nathan (now Dr.) Bangs, himself being a youth at th at time. He soon after removed to the township of Dorchester on the Riv er Thames, where he filled the office of class-leader.

Nov. 3, 1807, he was sent by the Rev. Joseph Sawyer, Presiding Elder of t he Upper Canada District to Niagara, as a helper to the Rev. Whitehead.

He was admitted on trial in the New York Conference, which was held at Ame nia, commencing April 6, 1808 and received his appointment to the Augus ta Circuit along with the Rev. Daniel Pickett, since gone to his rewar d. In 1809 he travelled the Yonge St. Circuit. In 1810 he was received i nto full connection in the Genese Conference and was ordained Deacon by Bi shop Asbury. His appointment this year was to Smith Creek Circuit, und er the charge of Henry Ryan, P. Elder. He was married Oct. 7 to Miss Ma ry Gilbert, daughter of Able Gilbert of Sidney. In 1811 he was again on t he Augusta Circuit and the following year on the Bay of Quinte Circuit.

The war between the United States and Great Britian (War of 1812), which c ommenced this year cut off all communications with the Conference; but dur ing the three following years till 1815 he remained at his post as o ne of Zion's watchmen in those troubled times, directed by the P. Elder.

In consequences of the hardships in separable from itinerant life in Cana da athe that early day, the excessive labors he had to perform, the many e xposures consqent upon long rides through almost impassable roads and t he poor accomodation affored by the settlers at that time, his consituti on became so shattered and broken down that he was compelled to retire f or the itinerant work. He settled in Belleville -- which was then but bet ter than a cedar swamp -- where by industry, econmy, and strict attenti on to business he accumulated handsome property. Fro many years he fill ed the double office of Local Preacher and Recording Steward. He was orda ined Elder at the Hallowell Conference, August 24, 1824, by Bishop George.

In the year 1834 he was restored to the traveling connexion and in the win ter of 1835 was chose General Superintendent of the Methodist Episcopal Ch urch in Canada, ie which office he was ordained in June following by Re v. Joseph Gatchell, Daniel Pickett and David Culp. In this capacity he co ntinued to serve the church as his circumstances and the state of his heal th enable him to do, until his death, which occorred as pervilusly announc ed on Saturday, Jan 17, 1857, aged 70 years 11 months and 8 days.

In October last he visited his friends in Dorchester and a brother who res ides in Paw Paw, Michigan, whom he had not seen for about 40 years. He h ad a severe attack in Hamliton, while on his way, which confined him to h is bed for several days, and which it was feared for a while, would pro ve fatal. But he was so far restroed as to be able to proceed on his journ ey, which he was enabled to accomplish, though in a weak and feable stat e. We were convinced at that time that he could not last long, thou gh we did not anticipate taht his end was so near.

His death was sudden and to his friends if not to himself, unexpecte d. At 2 o'clock he ate a beauty dinner and appeared in better health a nd spirits than he had for some time past. After dinner he retired to h is office; but a little after he called his daughter Mrs. Shibley, and sa id he felt quite unwell and almost immediately fainted. He was got into b ed as quickly as possible, his feet put into warm water and such restorati ves used as were at hand. As he said to his daughter, "If I lose my sens es or die suddenly, tell my friends "All is well" and soon afterwards he s aid "Mary Ann, I think I must go" -- and exclaimed: Blessed Jesus, thou a rt my friend == my best friend." A little after, being very ill, and sitt ing in the bed, he exclaimed in an ecstasy " Bless G-d! Bless Jesus!" a nd then calmly sunk away into the arms of death. So calm and peaceful w as his exit, that it was sometime after he ceased to breathe before the fr iends present could be persuaded that the was indeed gone. The immedia te cause of death is supposed to have been an affection of the heart.

His last sermon was preached in Belleville, on the 4th insl., from Rev. x xi 25 -- "For there shall be no night there." He had made provisional arr angements to preach a missionary sermon on the 15th at Canniston, but d id not live to fulfill it.

Bishop Reynolds was deservedly esteemed for his many virtues, but only tho se who were intimately acquainted with him could form an estimate of his r eal worth. His character was unimpeachable, and in all his business relati ons and transactions he was governed by principles of the strictest rectit ude and integrity. Few men have ever had with so many persons of every gr ade in society, and transacted the amount of business which he did, and ma de as few enemies. He was punctual to all his engagements, and scrupulous ly exact and conscientious in all the relations of his life. In him the p rinciple of order was largely developed, he had a place for everything a nd everything in it's place.

He was mild in his disposition, strictly (rest of sentence lost)

Notes for EBENEZER MUDGE:
Ebenezer Mudge, son of Micah & Mary, b. in Northampton, Mass., Feb 26, 168 3. d. Sharon, Conn. April 21,1758, age 75 years. He married Abigail Skinn er, Jan 13, 1708. She was born in Malden, Mass Feb. 17, 1691 & died in N ew Lebanon or Canaan N.Y. about 1766
They raised a numerous family, six sons and six daughters, all of whom we re married and living when Ebenezer died. They were very prolific, he le ft twenty-five adults and some eighty grandchildren to mourn his death.
Ebenezer's family moved to Lebanon, Conn. about 1697, he farmed , bought a nd sold land there and in Hebron and Colchester till 1737. He apparently s old all his holdings at that time and with his wife and family and Nathani el Skinner(his wife's brother) and his family moved west to the new townsi te of Sharon, Conn.
In 1738 Ebenezer drew the twenty-fifth home lot lying on both sides of t he Town Street (now The Green) and enbracing properties later occupi ed by Capt. Lines, Baldwin Reed, Major Gould and Skinners. In 1740 he so ld the lot to Cornelius Hamlin and Mary (Mudge) Hamlin, a daughter and th ey built a house on the property.The Sharon Historical Society now stan ds on the same piece of property.
In 1743 Ebenezer settled on the western border of "Mudge Pond" a beautif ul small lake on the outskirts of Sharon. A section of Sharon was call ed Mudge Town. He served in various town offices and with his sons bui lt and owned the first sawmill, gristmill and ironworks in Sharon.
When he died in 1758 his widow, six sons, six daughters and six sons in l aw signed an agreement, as heirs, to settle the estate without administrat ion. It was percieved a remarkable document as it not only showed the lon gevity of the family but that they all had a good education. (in that d ay many of the higher classes could not write but all of his children sign ed their names.)

[NI2297] Notes for MICAH MUDGE:
Micah Mudge b. New London, Mass. 1650, d. 1784, Hebron, Conn, age 75 year s, son of Jarvis and Rebecca Mudge. He married Mary Alexander in Northamp ton, Mass. in 1670. Her father, George Alexander was one of the founde rs of Northampton in 1654. She died in 1728 at age 79.
Micah & Mary appear to have been among the original settlers of Northfiel d, Mass., but the indians burnt their village and drove them off in 167 5, as they were dissatisfied with the amount of the original payment in 16 71. A deed was signed by Micah Mudge and two others on behalf of the sett lers in 1682 paying the indians additional monies where upon they were all owed to resettle Northfield. There were twenty-three signatures includi ng those of George & John Alexander & Micah Mudge on the application fil ed with the General Court of Boston for the formation of the Northfield pl antation.
He moved to Lebanon, Conn. about 1679 and having had some experien ce as a surveyor assisted in laying out the town and was granted land at v arious times which appears to have totaled one hundred and twenty acr es or more. In 1705 he sold one hundred acres to Joseph Tilden (his son-i n-law) for eight pounds. Micah was one of the nine persons who organiz ed the First Congregational Church in 1700. His wife was the only fema le until 1707.
In 1717 he sold thirty acres of land for one hundred and fifty-five pound s. He seems to have bought and sold land for speculation. He moved to He bron, Conn. in the fall of 1717 where he stayed until his death in 172 4.

(written by Albert Mudge)

[NI2320] 1. Jarvis Mudge was prob. born in Strood, not Stroud, Kent England. I beli eve that Strood is the proper spelling, and Stroud in located in another E nglish County.
2. There are two dates given for Jarvis' birth in England, either 16 08 or 1625. There appears to be no good record to back either date.
3. I have seen no firm evidence to support that Jarvis' father was named e ither Jarvis or Thomas, although I have seen both quoted on web site s. At this point, I would leave his parentage unknown.
4. Jarvis wife was the widow Elsen or Elsing. She was married to Abraham E lsen/Elsing and he died prior to 1648.
5. Rebecca then married Jarvis Mudge abt 1649. She had either 2 or 3 child ren from the first marriage (all girls) of which 2 survived her executio n, the other presumably died in infancy.
6. Rebecca and Jarvis had either 2 or 3 children, Moses, Micah, and some r ecords show a girl, Charity. In any case, Charity leaves no record a nd if she were "real", she probably died in infancy.
7. Jarvis Mudge died abt March, 1653. Afterwards she married Nathaniel Gre ensmith. Both were accused of witchcraft and in the typical trial metho ds of the time, were convicted on there own testimonies. Both seem to ha ve turned on the other and both were executed abt Jan. 1663.
8. I have seen no reports of their being hanged, the court records of t he time just mark them as executed. In any case, it was a sad day for just ice.
9. Some provision of Rebecca's estate was made for her two daughte rs by A. Elsen/Elsing, but curiously, the court seems to have ignored t he 2 children by Jarvis Mudge. This has led some researchers to suggest th at maybe the children of Jarvis are from a previous marriage. To me, th is seems unlikely because there are too few years between the births of t he two sons and Jarvis' death in 1653. Jarvis would have had to marry Rece cca Elsen/Elsing almost months before he died.
10. Although no court records have yet been found, I beleive that the cour ts made provision for the two sons out of Jarvis' estate, and left nothi ng for the widow and her two daughters, except a remainder estate from Abr aham. This remainder estate was conficated by the court to support the t wo daughters after her execution.
11. Rebecca's financial problems may also have led to her marrying Nathani el Greensmith, who, by all accounts, was not a model citizen, having be en accused of theivery and other crimes.
The above argument is by David at about the Mudge Li ne and Rebecca.

Nathaniel Greensmith lived in Hartford, south of the little river, in 1661 -62, on a lot of about twenty acres, with a house and barn. He also had ot her holdings "neer Podunk," and "on ye highway leading to Farmington."

He was thrifty by divergent and economical methods, since he is credit ed in the records of the time with stealing a bushel and a half of whea t, of stealing a hoe, and of lying to the court, and of battery.

In one way or another he accumulated quite a property for those days, sin ce the inventory of it filed in the Hartford Probate Office, January 25, 1 662, after his execution, carried an appraisal of 137. 14s. 1d. - includi ng "2 bibles," "a sword," "a resthead," and a "drachm. cup" - all indicati ng that Nathaniel judicously mingled his theology and patriotism, his recr eation and refreshment, with his everyday practical affairs and opportunit ies.

But he made one adventure that was most unprofitable. In an evil hour he t ook to wife Rebecca, relict of Abraham Elson, and also relict of Jarvis Mu dge, and of whom so good a man as the Rev. John Whiting, minister of the F irst Church in Hartford - afterward first pastor of the Second Church - sa id that she was 'a lewd, ignorant and considerably aged woman."

This triple combination of personal qualities soon elicited the critici sm and animosity of the community, and Nathaniel and Rebecca fell under t he most fatal of all suspicions of that day, that of being possessed by t he evil one.

Gossip and rumor about these unpopular neighbors culminated in a formal co mplaint, and December 30, 1662, at a court held in Hartford, both the Gree nsmiths were separately indicted in the same formal charge.

"Nathaniel Greensmith thou art here indicted by the name of Nathaniel Gree nsmith for not having the fear of God before thine eyes, thous hast entert ained familiarity with Satan, the grand enemy of God and mankind - a nd by his help hast acted things in a preternatural way beyond human abili ties in a natural course for which according to the law of God and the est ablished law of this commonwealth thou deservest to die."

While Rebecca was in prison under suspicion, she was interviewed by two mi nisters, Revs. Haynes and Whiting, as to the charges of Ann Cole - a ne xt door neighbor - which were written down by them, all of which, and mor e, she confessed to be true before the court. (Note. Increase Mather regar ded this confession as convictive a proof of real witchcraft as most sing le cases he had known.)

THE MINISTERS' ACCOUNT -


"She forthwith and freely confessed those things to be true, that she (a nd other persons named in the discourse) had familiarity with the devil. B eing asked whether she had made an express covenant with him, she answer ed she had not, only as she promised to go with him when he called (whi ch she had accordingly done several times). But that the devil told her th at a Christmas they would have a merry meeting, and then the covenant shou ld be drawn and subscribed. Thereupon the fore-mentioned Mr. Stone (bei ng then in court) with much weight and earnestness laid forth the exceedi ng heinousness and hazard of that dreadful sin; and therewith solemnly to ok notice (upon the occasion given) of the devil's loving Christmas.

"A person at the same time present being desired the next day more particu larly to enquire of her about her guilt, it was accordingly done, to wh om she acknowledged that though when Mr. Haynes began to read she could ha ve torn him to pieces, and was so much resolved as might be to deny her gu ilt (as she had done before) yet after he had read awhile, she was as if h er flesh had been pulled from her bones, (such was her expression,) a nd so could not deny any longer. She also declared that the devil first ap peared to her, wherewith she was not much affrighted but by degrees he con trived talk with her; and that their meetings were frequently at such a pl ace, (near her own house;) that some of the company came in one shape a nd some in another, and one in particular in the shape of a crow came flyi ng to them. Amongst other things she owned that the devil had frequent u se of her body."

Had Rebecca been content with purging her own conscience, she alone wou ld have met the fate she had invoked, and probably deserved [NOTE: from th is compiler, I am disappointed that John M. Taylor, an educated man of t he 19th century, could make such a statement! The viewpoint of two centuri es earlier was clearly understandable given the beliefs of the time. But T aylor completely misses what was happening to the innocent victims, arrest ed on false accusations, imprisoned and too frequently executed on confess ions wrung out by fear and even torture. That Rebecca was a troublesome ne ighbor is likely true; that Nathaniel was perhaps just as troublesome is a lso likely true. That they possessed property that fell into the hands a nd ultimate possession of their accusers lends significant suspici on as to the real motive behind both Nathaniel's and Rebecca's convicti on and execution. - V.P.]; but out of "love toher husband's soul" she ma de an accusation against him, which of itself secured his conviction of t he same offense, with the same dire penalty.

THE ACCUSATION -


"Rebecca Greensmith testifieth in Court Janry 8. 62.

"1. That my husband on Friday night last when I came to prison told me th at now thou hast confest against thyself let me alone and say nothi ng of me and I wilbe good unto thy children.

"I doe now testifie that formerly when my husband hathe told me of his gre at travaile and labour I wondered as it how he did it this he did befo re I was married and when I was married I asked him how he did it and he a nswered me he had help yt I knew not of.

"3. About three years agoe as I think it; my husband and I were in ye wo od several miles from home and were looking for a sow yt we lost and I s aw a creature a red creature following my husband and when I came to h im I asked him what it was that was with him and he told me it was a fox.

"4. Another time when he and I drove our hogs into ye woods beyond ye pou nd yt was to keep cattle severall miles of I went before ye hogs to call t hem and looking back I saw two creatures like dogs one a little blacker th an ye other, they came after my husband pretty close to him and one did se em tome to touch him I asked him wt they were he told me he thought fox es I was stil afraid when I saw anything because I heard soe much of him b efore I married him.

"5. I have seen logs that my husband hath brought home in his cart th at I wondered at it that he could get them into ye cart being a man of lit tle body and weake to my apprehension and ye logs were such that I thoug ht two men such as he could not have done it.

"I speak all this out of love to my husbands soule and it is much again st my will that I am now necessitate to speake agaynst my husband, I desi re that ye Lord would open his heart to owne and speak ye trueth.

"I also testify that I being in ye wood at a meeting there was with me Goo dy Seager Goodwife Sanford & Goodwife Ayres; and at another time there w as a meeting under a tree in ye green by or house & there was there Jam es Walkely, Peter Grants wife Goodwife Aires & Henry Palmers wife of Wethe rsfield, & Goody Seager, & there we danced, & had a bottle of sack; it w as in ye night & something like a catt cald me out to ye meeting & I w as in Mr. Varlets orcherd with Mrs. Judith Varlett & shee tould me that sh ee was much troubled with ye Marshall Jonath: Gilbert & cried, & she sa yd if it lay in her power she would doe hin a mischief, or what hurt sh ee could."


The Greensmiths were convicted and sentenced to suffer death. In Januar y, 1662, they were hung on "Gallows Hill," on the bluff a little nor th of where Trinity College now stands - "a logical location" one most lea rned in the traditions and history of Hartford calls it - as it afford ed an excellent view of the execution to a large crowd on the meadows to t he west, a hanging being then a popular spectacle and entertainment.

13887. Rebecca [Elson] died in Jan 1663 in Hartford, CT. She died in Jan 1 663 in Hartford CT. She has reference number J 13887. FROM FISHER 10th g gm of Gordon Fisher She married first Abraham ELSON, then Jarvis (1) MUDG E, then Nathaniel GREENSMITH. Conceivably Jarvis (2) MUDGE of this databa se is direct descendant of Jarvis (1) MUDGE, 2 or 3 genera- tions apart. R ebecca and Nathaniel were executed for witchcraft. Rebecca the Witch Excer pt from William DeLoss Love, The Colonial History of Hart- ford, Hartfo rd CT (Connecticut Printers) 1935 (U S Bicentennial Edition, 1974, Centin el Hill Press), p 282-286 The most serious indictment that has ever been b rought against our early criminal courts is for their action in the witchc raft delusion, the explanation of which has been often made and is here le ft to others. It was an episode in New England history that should be judg ed in view of similar beliefs then current in the old world. In Connecticu t, all the cases where the condemned were executed occurred between 1647 a nd 1662. They were, therefore, tried in the Particular Court. Of the seven teen in the river towns who were charged with witchcraft during this perio d, nine were residents of Hartford. Three of these were executed. As the p rison where all criminals of Hartford, Windsor, Wethersfield and Farmingt on were confined was located in Hartford, it is probable that the entire n umber from these towns, which were hung in this delusion, suffered in Hart ford. Alse Young of Windsor was the first unhappy victim, but the court re cords give us no information concerning her trial. On cover of Mathew Gran t's Diary, Dr. J. Hammond Trumbull discovered the record "May 26, 47 Al se Young was hanged." This supplies the blank in Winthrop's History: "O ne ----- ----- of Windsor arraigned and executed at Hartford for a witch ." So far as known, this was the first execution for witch- craft in New E ngland. The next victim was Mary Johnson of Wethersfield [Rev. Henry SMIT H, our DIRECT ANCESTOR, presided at the trial]. In 1646, she had been sent enced to be whipped for theft, probably at Hartford, which was to be repea ted a month later at Wethersfield. On her own confession, she was indict ed by a jury December 7, 1648, as guilty of "familiarity with the Deuill ." Mather says [in Magnalia Christi Americana, 1698, VI.71- 78], "Her conf ession was attended with such convictive circum- stances that it could n ot be slighted." She confessed, he says, that she had murdered a child, a nd committed other faults of licentiousness. For some months before her ex ecution, she was imprisoned at Hartford, under the care of William Rusco e. A son was born to her while there. Nathaniel Ruscoe, the jailor's so n, agreed with her before her death to bring up and educate the child, whi ch agreement was afterward sanctioned by the court. The jailor was pa id 6 10s, for twenty-four weeks' charges to June 6, 1650, from which fa ct it is inferred that she was executed on that date. Rev. Samuel Stone mi nistered to her while in prison, and it is said that she became a penite nt woman. She was evidently a poor, misguided creature, who accounted f or her fault according to the superstition of the age. After the executi on of John and Joan Carrington of Wethersfield in 1651, and Lydia Gilbe rt of Windsor in 1654, a witchcraft tragedy was enacted among Hartford res idents. It is one story [sic] and has been written and published by Dr. Ch arles J. Hoadley ["A Case of Witchcraft in Hartford" in Connecticut Magazi ne, Nov., 1899, pp. 557-561.] Nine persons were involved, largely throu gh the statements of Rebecca Greensmith [DIRECT ANCESTOR , when wife of Ab raham ELSEN ]. She had been the wife of Abraham Elsen of Wethersfield [DIR ECT ANCESTOR], who died in 1648. Then she married Jarvis Mudge [Jarvis ( 1) MUDGE of our database], and was a widow when she married the unfortuna te Nathaniel Greensmith. Those who were implicated constituted a gro up of local acquain- tances, some of whom had a repute for misdemeano rs or immorality. Their names were Nathaniel and Rebecca Greensmith; Eliza beth, the wife of Richard Seager; Andrew Sanford and Mary his wife; Willi am Ayres and his wife; Judith Varlett and James Walkley. Of Rebecca Greens mith, Rev. John Whiting wrote to Inrease Mather that she was a "lewd, igno rant and considerably aged woman." Her husband had twice been convict ed of theft. The court had once censured him for lying. Elizabeth Seager l eft a record of shameless crime, being guilty of blasphemy and adultery. T hese were the leaders. The others kept such company. One night they h ad a merrymaking, under a tree on the green near Rebecca Greensmith's hous e. James Walkley, Goodwife Ayres and Goody Seager were present. They all d anced and had a bottle of sack. Other nocturnal gatherings were held. Susp icions were awakened in the neighborhood. Nathaniel Greensmith had a sma ll home-lot, house and barn, recently pur- chased. It was located just sou th of our present Barnard Park, on which green the dance of the witches w as doubtless held. Complaint had been made to the town that he had set h is barn on common land. James Walkley had a house-lot on the north si de of the road from George Steele's to the South Meadow. Sanford and Ayr es apparently lived on North Main Street. The crisis came in the spri ng of 1662, with the accusations of a young daughter of John Kelley, utter ed in the delirium of sickness. The child died. Immediate- ly, the neighbo rhood was busy with reports that she had been bewitched unto death. The ma gistrates examined several of those accused. Nathaniel Greensmith then su ed William Ayres for slan- dering his wife. She and her husband were so on arrested. The defendant Ayres, his wife, and James Walkley, took refu ge in flight. Ann, the daughter of John Cole, had strange fits about th at time. Her examination by the ministers, Samuel Hooker of Farmington, Sa muel Stone, Joseph Haynes and John Whiting of Hartford, only increased t he mystery and augmented the excitement. On June 6th, Andrew Sanford was i ndicted for witchcraft. The jury disagreed. A week later, Mary Sanford w as indicted and found guilty. This action furthered the ultimate indictme nt of Nathaniel and Rebecca Greensmith, which occurred December 30, 166 2. They were both found guilty [see Footnote below]. The woman's testimo ny implicated her associates. On January 6th, Mary Barnes of Farmington w as indicted, and was also found guilty. The tragic scenes, which closed th is horrible episode of our local history, can be all too clearly imagine d. Mary Sanford was convicted first, and was not long detained in jail. Li ke some weird spectre of the spirit world, she disappeared. Goodwife Barn es was confined three weeks, for which Daniel Garret, the jailkeeper, w as allowed 21s., to be paid by Goodman Barnes. The jailor was also allow ed 6s. a week for keeping Nathaniel and Rebecca Greensmith, to be paid o ut of his estate. His inventory states that he was executed January 25, 16 62-3. Hutchinson quotes the diary of Goffe, the regicide, under the date J anuary 20th, as saying "three witches were condemned at Hartford." On th is date the Particular Court met. He also says of Rebecca Greensmith: "Up on this confession she was executed, and two more of the company were cond emned at the same time." The scene was doubtless accompanied by the publ ic sensation common to such occasions in England. It was the last time a ny witches were hung in Connecti- cut, and forty years before the exciteme nt over the Salem witch- craft. Elizabeth Seager was indicted on the sa me day with Mary Barnes, and twice later. In 1665 she was convicted, but t he Court of Assistants found a way to release her, after a year's imprison ment. It seems probable that the witches were executed outside of the town -plot, on the road from the Cow Pasture into the Country. There the gallo ws of early times was located. On March 10, 1711-12, John Read sold to Jo hn Olcott a tract of about seven acres, bounded south on the "highway lead ing out of Hartford town towards Symsbury," now Albany Avenue. It is descr ibed in the deed as "near the house lately built by Joseph Butler, near wh ere the Gallows used to stand." The place is near enough identifi ed as on the north side of the avenue, on the east end of the present Good win lot. There, a large elm tree on a rise of ground might well memoriali ze the place where this tragedy of Hartford's early history was enacted. [ FOOTNOTE, concerning trial of Nathaniel Greensmith:] The indictment read s: "Nathaniel Greensmith, thou art here indicted by the name of Nathani el Greensmith for not having the feare of God before thine eyes; thou ha st entertained familiarity with Satan, the grand Enemy of God and Mankin d, and by his help hast acted things in a preter naturall way beyond hum an abilities in a naturall course, for which according to ye Law of God a nd ye established laws of this Commonwealth thou deserveth to die." The fo rm of the information, used in the Superior Court for many years, assign ed all crimes to the instigation of the Devil. The magistrates at this tri al were as follows: Mr. [Mathew} Allyn [DIRECT ANCESTOR], moderator, Mr [S amuel] Wyllys, Mr [Richard] Treat [DIRECT ANCESTOR if Richard (1) TRE AT of our database, otherwise son Richard (2) TREAT, brother of DIRECT ANC ESTOR Joanna TREAT], Mr. [Henry] Woolcot, Danll Clark, Sec., Mr. Jo. Ally n. The jury were: Edw. Griswold, Walter Ffiler Ensign [Nicholas] Olmste ad [sic: this may mean Walter Ffiler, ----- Ensign and Nicholas Olmstead - -- we have DIRECT ANCESTOR James ENSIGN, and Nicholas OLMSTEAD was father- in-law of Hannah MIX, sister of DIRECT ANCESTOR Daniel (1) MIX)], Samll Bo reman, Goodm [Gregory] Winterton, John Cowles [DIRECT ANCESTOR], Samll Mar shall, Samll Hale [DIRECT ANCESTOR], Nathan Willet, John Hart, John Wadswo rth, Robert Webster. The execution of the criminals then devolved upon t he Marshal, who was Jonathan Gilbert. One of the accused is said to have s een this worthy official in a dream, which seemed to presge the end. He w as the first of three appointed to settle Greensmith's estate. Jonathan Gi lbert succeeded Thomas Stanton in this office, and was followed by Geor ge Grave.

[NI2329] 3. Jonathan Simmons2 [Erastus1] farmed most of his life, but taught count ry school in his younger years. He was born March 12, 1851, near London, M iddlesex Co., Ontario, Canada, likely in Lobo Township where his father re ceived a Crown Patent for 100 acres in 1854. Jonathan was a son of Erast us Simmons and Elizabeth Millard. He was living in Lobo Township near Lond on when his father sold the family farm and immigrated to Missouri in t he winter of 1867. The family settled in DeKalb County and made one crop b efore moving on to Saline County in the area around Sweet Springs. Jonath an was living in Salt Pond Township, Saline Co., Missouri in 1870. He marr ied April 2, 1871, in Saline Co., Missouri, to Elizabeth Ann Jackman. S he was born August 24, 1850, and died June 13, 1881, daughter of John a nd Sally Jackman. In 1880 they were living in Hogan Twp., Franklin Co., Ar kansas, where Jonathan had purchased a farm in the late 1870s.

Willie was a fine young man. When he turned 21, grandfather Erastus ga ve him a horse and saddle. He worked for his father, Jonathan, that summe r, and again in 1904 after his step-mother had passed away. He never seem ed inclined to marry but did eventually in his mid to late forties. He w as kind and gentle like his father.

Jonathan Simmons' second marriage was on April 4, 1883, in Saline Co., Mis souri, to Dorothy Evelyn Bridgwater. She was born January 1, 1857, in Coop er Co., Missouri, daughter of a Confederate soldier, Matthew Coleman Bridg water, and his wife, Martha Jane Harlow - both old family Virginians.

Jonathan and his new bride headed for Kansas where they filed a claim a nd immediately went about improving their farm. On May 22, 1886, Jonath an was naturalized at Pawnee Co., Kansas. Eva was weakened by the hardshi ps so common to pioneer life. By their eleventh anniversary, she had ni ne children, four dying before they reached their first year. She was n ot to see another decade. In 1900, Jonathan and Eva were living in Marshal l, Saline Co., Missouri. They returned to Nashville, Kansas where Eva di ed of dropsy on March 9, 1903. She was 46 years of age. Jonathan stay ed in Kansas only a few years more. In 1907 he and his son, Floyd, dro ve a team and wagon overland to the area around Gering, Scottsbluff co., N ebraska. Jonathan's daughters, Vergie and Lula took a coach and joined h im there where both daughters immediately married. Lula later removed to W yoming. Jonathan, with Floyd and Vergie, and their families remained in Ne braska the rest of their lives. By 1910 they were settled in at ..., a nd by 1920 at ...

Alvin Henry Kissick died 4 July 19 74 at Lockeford, California, and is buried in Cherokee Memorial Park Cemet ery, Lodi, California. Alvin Henry was working as a pressman and livi ng in Decatur, Macon County, Illinois, when he met and married Jennie B. W heeler. J. S.

During the difficulties of the depression era, Alvin Henry Kissick abandon ed his wife and children and was not heard from for several years. It is n ot known if a divorce was obtained, however, both he and Lula remarried. L ula married on 17 February 1933 to John Emil Judson Barnum. He was bo rn 8 September 1894 at Mayoworth on the John Landers ranch in Johnson Coun ty, Wyoming, son of Guy Percy Barnum and ----- Freeguard. His parents a nd an uncle, Thomas Freeguard, had homesteaded in the Hole-in-the-Wa ll or Red Wall area of central Wyoming, an area which later became famou s, or infamous, for its outlaw hideouts and frontier history. John, or "Po wder River Jack" as he was known among friends, was a colorful western cha racter in his own right. He served in World War I, lost a lung to musta rd gas, and was presented with a service medal. Living almost his entire l ife within fifty to a hundred miles of his birthplace, he was alternate ly a hunter and guide, a sheepherder, a song writer, and to some of u s, a gentle rascal. In 1958, John moved from the Condit Ranch near Kayce e, Wyoming, to live with his step-daughter, Tressie, where he shared a ro om with this compiler. It was cramped quarters for an old man and a you ng boy; two beds in basement corner shared with a small window and stai rs that led up to nowhere. The house was yet to be finished and the enti re family was living in the basement, weatherized until the main floor cou ld be built. John was a great story teller and enjoyed a good joke or pran k. It seems a twist of fate that he died on April Fool's day the followi ng year. John Barnum and Lula May (Simmons) Lynch Kissick had a stillbo rn child about 1933. The child was privately and mournfully buried in a sh oe box near the Platt River in east central Wyoming.

Alvin Henry Kissick returned to relatives in Illinois and on 28 July 19 32 at Springfield, Illinois, he married Margaret Ellen Doolin. She was bo rn 9 September 1909 in Decatur, Illinois, daughter of Charles Bartholem ew Doolin and Jessie Edna Dill. Alvin then returned to California with h is new bride and raised a third family. During World War II, Alvin was con vinced that the Japanese would invade California. To insulate him and h is family from this possibility, he moved to Marcola, Oregon, about 15 mil es northeast of Eugene or Springfield, Oregon, and did not return to Calif ornia until 1947. He eventually settled permanently in the central vall ey where he retired and, at the age of 80, passed away. His widow, Margare t, died in Stockton, California, where she had been living with her daught er, Nancy.

[NI2331] Erastus Simmons was born 14 November 1822 in Canada, probably in the Provi nce of Ontario, son of Jonathan Simmons and Minerva Reynolds. Minerva w as the daughter of William Reynolds, Jr., and Sarah Jane Stephens, and gra nddaughter of William Reynolds, Sr., and Elizabeth Mudge, who immigrat ed to Canada from New York in 1794, and Justus and Jane Stephens of Burfor d, Ontario. Erastus Simmons was a farmer and by 1851 was living in a log h ouse in Lobo Township near London.(1) This was the same farm for whi ch he received a Crown Patent on 16 March 1854, described as 100 acr es in the South East half of Lot Two in the Eleventh Concession in the Tow nship of Lobo.(2) For the next thirteen years, Erastus farmed and improv ed his property. In 1860, he built a fine brick structure, one and a ha lf stories high, for his wife and growing family which, by then, number ed seven children and would increase by another six within the next elev en years.(3) Although many of his relatives were Methodist and his great u ncle, John Reynolds, was a Methodist Episcopal bishop(4), Erastus and h is wife embraced the Baptist church, and were members of that denominati on throughout their lives. A brother, Charles Simmons, probably a broth er to Erastus, was of the Quaker persuasion and after locating in Lobo Tow nship, remained there his entire life.

Erastus Simmons married on 1 November 1846 to Elizabeth Millard. She was b orn 16 January 1825 in Canada, probably near London, Middlesex Co., Ontari o. It is not clear who her parents were. The only names mentioned in recor ds handed down through the family are Herbert and Rebecca Hampton. It m ay be conjectured that Rebecca was Elizabeth's mother; that she was marri ed to Mr. Millard who died, and then she married Herbert Hampton. There w as a David Millard in Lobo Township as early as 1830. He received a Cro wn Patent on 19 February 1830 for 100 acres in the southeast half of L ot 3, Concession 13, in Lobo Township. No trace of the Herbert Hampton h as been found by this compiler. Rebecca was living near London in 1861 wi th an unrelated family. She was 54, Catholic, and unable to read or write. (5)

Erastus sold his farm in Lobo Township on 26 January 1867 to John Trehar ne for $3,350.00, a considerable sum for the times.(6) By February, the fa mily was heading for Missouri amid the ice and snow of winter. When they r eached the Mississippi River at either St. Charles or Lexington, the riv er was only partially frozen as a thaw was setting in. About half an in ch of water covered the ice and it was over this treacherous path that t he family trudged to complete their crossing. Nannie Lewis, the youngest c hild in the family, wrote years later that her mother had carried Olive w ho was eleven months old. She held tightly to Clayton's hand, leading t he five-year-old across the ice. Emily, who was seventeen, carried Susie b undled tightly in her arms. Susie's twin sister, Rosie, was carried by Jon athan who also carried some of the family luggage. Eliza Jane and Milton j ust ran along and kept up while Erastus, Elery, Charles, and Seth carri ed the rest of the luggage.

The family settled first in DeKalb Co., Missouri, where they made one cro p. The following year, they removed to Saline Co., Missouri, where Erast us and Elizabeth spent the remainder of their lives(7). On 18 October 187 5, Erastus purchased a 150 acre farm from B. F. Coffey. On 21 May 187 8, he bought property from Tom Coffey. Two years later, on 1 April 188 0, he purchased property from W. B. Hopper. In 1875, Erastus was granted p ower of attorney to act on behalf of Samuel Wulph. Erastus and Eliza al so sold property to their son, Charles simmons, on May 6, 1878.(8)

The first death in the family was Milton who died in 1871 in his thirteen th year. Elizabeth Jane followed in 1885 in her twenty-sixth year. Six yea rs later the family suffer the loss of their beloved mother. Elizabeth di ed at Sweet Springs, Missouri, on 4 September 1891. Her funeral was on t he following day at Mt. Zion Church, six miles north of Sweet Springs. O ne of her young grandchildren, Addie (Simmons) Moomau, wrote to this compi ler about the procession. The preparations for the funeral were elabora te from a child's view and everyone wanted to attend. There was much comi ng and going and all manner of relatives visiting, hugging, crying, and co nsoling. The blustery skies threatened an early winter as they darkened a nd temperatures dropped. The cold turned to a soft rain, laced with spatte rs of ice, that dashed the children's hopes of tagging along. The servi ce commenced at eleven and once over, the hushed rustle of black umbrell as and the solemn grays and duns of great coats being donned filled the sm all church. Family and friends filed out, some walking, some climbing in to buggies or onto horses, and joined the procession. They wound along t he clay country road, already muddy and slippery from the rain which was f alling heavier than at first. The procession passed the farmhouse that on ly days before provided warmth and comfort to Elizabeth. The children with in rushed to the windows, wiped the haze from several panes, and pressed t heir faces to the glass. All was quiet in the house.

With Elizabeth's death, sixty-eight-year-old Erastus was alone for the fir st time in forty-five years. His children were grown and most had sizab le families of their own. Some moved away, scattering to the west. The hou se seemed empty but by the following summer that was changed. Erastus, w ho was acquainted with the widow Sarah E. Lamb, proposed to the lady and s he accepted. On 17 July 1892, at Mt. Leonard, Saline Co., Missouri, they w ere married by J. D. Thomason, a minister from Blue Springs, Missouri.( 9) Erastus' granddaughter, Addie Frances Simmons, was at the wedding and r ecalled years later that it was a well attended affair. Addie had just tur ned seven. Sarah was a native of Missouri, having been born in the Sh ow Me state in May of 1853. Her parents were born in Kentucky. Sarah was p reviously married to _______________ Lamb. There were no children.(10)

Erastus Simmons passed away on 30 May 1906 in his home at Mt. Leonard, Sal ine Co., Missouri, aged 83 years, 5 months, and 16 days, and was buried ne xt to his first wife, Elizabeth. The old cemetery where many of his fami ly are buried is located about seven miles north of Sweet Springs. At o ne time it was overgrown with sprouts and brambles, but by 1969 it was bei ng cared for by Charles Simmons, and was by then much like a park. The o ld church that housed their worship from baptisms and marriages to death w as long since been torn down. It was known as the Antioch Baptist or "Mou nt Zion" Church. Erastus Simmons' son, Charles, kept a Sunday School the re for as long as he lived in the area. It was through Charles Simmons' pe rsonal efforts that the Sunday School was kept at all and made availab le to his children and others. In those days, if a church was too far awa y, folks found it difficult and sometimes impossible to attend. The area a round the cemetery has always been known as Blind Pony. There see ms to be no specific boundary and the name appears to be purely loca l. In 1969, the State of Missouri made a recreational area there, includi ng a large lake and made plans for a fish hatchery nearby.(11)

Erastus had been relatively prosperous during his life. He and Elizabeth a nd their children were well educated and all could read and write. Th is is evidenced by the very fine penmanship of both parents and childr en on surviving documents and by family tradition. Several of the childre n, once grown, supported their farming endeavors by teaching country schoo l. Erastus' signature on his will, executed just months before his deat h, was firm and beautifully cursive and allowed no hint of his 83 yea rs or of the debility that had probably prompted the writing. At his dea th he owned his home in Mt. Leonard, Missouri, and four separate lot s. He had nearly two thousand dollars deposited in the Bank of Sweet Sprin gs at Sweet Springs, Missouri. Undoubtedly there were many personal posses sions, but his will is general, mentioning only the "cooking stove, heati ng stove, cooking utensils, and kitchen furniture" to his wife; the balan ce of the "household" furniture to be distributed by his wife and son Char les Simmons "as they may think best". The only other specific items, whi ch were listed on the inventory of his estate, were a watch(12), hand sa w, and square valued at $3.00 and "lumber on hand" valued at $47.00. In h is will, Erastus said he had already given his wife the house, so bequeath ed her a dollar and the items mentioned. He bequeathed the remainder of h is estate to his children and heirs of deceased children. His taxes for 19 06 were $2.57.(13)

Of the thirteen children of Erastus Simmons and Elizabeth Millard, the fir st eleven were born in Canada, all probably in Lobo Township, near Londo n. The youngest two, Anna and Nannie, were born in Saline Co., Missouri.(1 4)

[NI2343] There is a Kline Kill in the Town of Kinderhook and Town of Ghent. The se towns are quite a bit north of Livingston, so there is another pa rt of Columbia Co. to consider if that name is important. A
distant relative of mine was said to have been born at Kline Kill. Howeve r, there is no hamlet there by that name. My relative's house was on ma ps of the time so I know where he lived (house is
still there). The location was just a rural part of the Town of Kinderhoo k, along this creek. Kline Kill also means Little Creek.

[NI2346] Obit in Canada Christian Advocate, August 22, 1855:

Mary Reynolds, of Belleville, and wife of Rev. Joh Reynolds, senior Bish op of the M. E. Church in Canada, died August 13, 1855, aged 62 years 26 d ays.

Sister R. was the oldest daughter of the late Able Gilbert of Sidne y. In 1810 she was united in marriage to her now bereaved and aged consor t, to who she always proved a helpmate. The early settlers on the B ay of Quinte, were destitute of nearly all they comforts and convenience s, no to say luxuries, which now abound so plentifully. The best privileg es of the times were secured and employed for early culture and result ed in leading Mary to choose the good part in early life. To the acquirme nts of her youth she continued to make additions and her proficency throu gh life secured admiration and in many cases commanded respect. Of her pa st life we are authorized to write" The heart of her husband doth safely t urst in her. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eatith n ot from the bread of idleness." In the retriement of domestic life, her e xample will warrant imitation. Industry, economy and frugality were strik ingly exemplifed, and if her hospitality was ?? defussed, it was genero us and warm in it's excerise upon the more fortunate subjects. The streno us of the ago and circumstances that gave her charactor, were deeply stamp ed upon her whole practico. The relative duties of life were preformed wi th a vigor and energy rarely surpassed. The peculiar order of her mind, s trenghten by habit, affixed it seal upon her whole deportment. In the wor ld and careful and troubled about many things, the duties of religion we re never ca

On Jany. 3, 1699-1700 the farm of John's father was divided by a highw ay in Wethersfield. John chose the northern 13 acres and his brother, Jon athan, the southern 11 acres. It seems that none of Jonathan's male child ren had descendants, so that the Wethersfield Family of Reynoldses is a ll descended from John2.

This genealogy is an account of John and Naomi (Latimer) Reynolds of Wethe rsfield, Connecticut, whose known history extends from about 1650 to 1700.

It is said, upon the authority of a letter from the Reverend William T. Re ynolds, dated June 4, 1878, to Dr. H.A. Street, that John came from Cheshi re or from near Ipswich, England. We know that he was born before 1650, a nd that he died Nov. 15, 1682, at Wethersfield. His estate was apprais ed at 121-0-0, and the papers in the settlement of the estate mention h is son John, Junior, as aged about ten, and son Jonathan, aged six [Hartfo rd Probate Records; Hinman's Notes, and his Conn. Settlers].

The earliest records of Wethersfield [NEHGR 34:108], now kept in the Sta te Library at Hartford, Conn., do not go back of 1640. There is little men tion of John in them. His private earmark appears in the town records of J udge Adams deposited at Hartford:

"1673 - The ear mark which John Rennals gives all his cretures is an half- penny on the foreside the right ear and an half-penny on the under side t he same ear."

On the margin of the record, as an index, is written John's name.

In June 1678, John received by gift from his Mother-in-law, widow Ann Lati mer, "25 acres of land southeast side of Broad Street, next north of Jo hn Betts, and next south of John Latimer."

John was a member of the Wethersfield Church previous to January 12, 16 74 and his gravestone is there. He owned the lands where the Connecticut S tate Penitentiary now stands. This is designated in the town plots as t he "Pennywise" Tract. Robert Reynolds also held land in it in 1635.

Another John Reynolds and his kinsman Robert Reynolds came from Waterto wn and Boston, respectively, in 1635-36, and took up homes in Wethersfiel d, but both removed within a few years [Descendants of Robert and Mary Rey nolds of Boston, p. 17]. That John's home was on High Street, third from t he meeting-house and about the center of town, between John Gibbs and Andr ew Ward, some 3 acres. On March 11, Feby. 11, 1640-41, he received a hous elot and several other pieces of land. These were all sold to Lieut. Jo hn Hollister, recorded May 20, 1644, o.s. [Descendants of John and Sarah R eynolds of Watertown and Greenwich, p. 17; Stiles, History of Wethersfield ]. There was also a Robert Reinolds of Wethersfield, who "went to the fo rt and died in Saybrook in 1662. His children were: Reinold, Mary, and Han nah." Of this latter we have no further knowledge at all.

It is singular that these four different pioneers were all at different ti mes in Wethersfield, two Johns and two Roberts, and that no clue can be fo und to show relationship or identity. A careful search of the records in H artford should do much toward clearing that up. It is singular that the la st mention of John of Greenwich, then living near Stamford, was in a Green wich deed 1651, and that the history of John of Wethersfield begins abo ut that time. Yet the first John had sons, John and Jonathan, clearly trac ed through the history of Greenwich; and the John of Wethersfield likewi se had sons John and Jonathan who certainly were not the same two of Green wich. The brothers of Greenwich were born about 1636 and 1638 and were mar ried in 1656 and 1668; the two of identical name in Wethersfield were bo rn in 1674 and 1677 and were married in 1693 and 1697. Therefore, we mu st abandon the theory of identity of John and sons John and Jonathan of Gr eenwich with John and sons John and Jonathan of Wethersfield. There is alm ost a generation between them.

The wife of John of Wethersfield was Miss Naomi Latimer, born there Ju ly 4, 1648, whom he married probably about 1665, probably in that town. S he was the daughter of John and Ann Latimer. Her father seems to have di ed prior to 1678 when the above land was given to John Reynolds.

After the death of John, Naomi married (prior to 1700) Philip Goffe. He w as the second son of thirteen children of Philip & Rebecca Goffe (Gough? ), and was b. 1653, being about five years younger that Naomi. He di ed at Wethersfield March 7, 1724. They had a daughter, Naomi, who marri ed Samuel Westcott of Kingstown, R.I.

When John's property was divided up, son John took north side of Highway ( 13 acres); Jonathan south side of highway (11 acres).

The children of John and Naomi Reynolds were born in Wethersfield:
1 Keziah b. 1667. No more known of her.
2 Anne b 1669; m. Robert Davis of Providence (and Warwick), R.I. A mong their children were:
1. Robert Davis who married Mary Hopkins.
2. Keziah Davis m. Peter Greene of the old Greene family of Wa rwick (See Greene Genealogy). Their daughter, Jerusha Greene m. Sylvanus W estgate (or Westcott) of Warwick; whose daughter Sarah Westgate m. James R hodes of Warwick; whose son Malachi m. Betsey Sheldon; whose daughter Bets ey Rhodes m. Stephen Arnold; whose son Stephen Augustus Arnold m. Anne Sop hia Bosworth; whose daughter Frances Bosworth Arnold m. Cyrus Withington E ddy who had Cyrus Tourtellotte Eddy of 210 New York Ave., Providence, R. I. who supplies this information.
3 Rebina b. 1671; This name is unusual - could it have been Rebecc a, misspelled in the old town records? No more known.

Hannah was the daughter of Leona rd and Sarah Dix of Wethersfield. Marriage entered on Wethersfield recor ds Jany. 3, 1699-1700.

On Jany. 3, 1699-1700 the farm of John's father was divided by a highw ay in Wethersfield. John chose the northern 13 acres and his brother, Jon athan, the southern 11 acres.

This genealogy is an account of John and Naomi (Latimer) Reynolds of Wethe rsfield, Connecticut, whose known history extends from about 1650 to 1700.

It is said, upon the authority of a letter from the Reverend William T. Re ynolds, dated June 4, 1878, to Dr. H.A. Street, that John came from Cheshi re or from near Ipswich, England. We know that he was born before 1650, a nd that he died Nov. 15, 1682, at Wethersfield. His estate was apprais ed at 121-0-0, and the papers in the settlement of the estate mention h is son John, Junior, as aged about ten, and son Jonathan, aged six [Hartfo rd Probate Records; Hinman's Notes, and his Conn. Settlers].

The earliest records of Wethersfield [NEHGR 34:108], now kept in the Sta te Library at Hartford, Conn., do not go back of 1640. There is little men tion of John in them. His private earmark appears in the town records of J udge Adams deposited at Hartford:

"1673 - The ear mark which John Rennals gives all his cretures is an half- penny on the foreside the right ear and an half-penny on the under side t he same ear."

On the margin of the record, as an index, is written John's name.

In June 1678, John received by gift from his Mother-in-law, widow Ann Lati mer, "25 acres of land southeast side of Broad Street, next north of Jo hn Betts, and next south of John Latimer."

John was a member of the Wethersfield Church previous to January 12, 16 74 and his gravestone is there. He owned the lands where the Connecticut S tate Penitentiary now stands. This is designated in the town plots as t he "Pennywise" Tract. Robert Reynolds also held land in it in 1635.

Another John Reynolds and his kinsman Robert Reynolds came from Waterto wn and Boston, respectively, in 1635-36, and took up homes in Wethersfiel d, but both removed within a few years [Descendants of Robert and Mary Rey nolds of Boston, p. 17]. That John's home was on High Street, third from t he meeting-house and about the center of town, between John Gibbs and Andr ew Ward, some 3 acres. On March 11, Feby. 11, 1640-41, he received a hous elot and several other pieces of land. These were all sold to Lieut. Jo hn Hollister, recorded May 20, 1644, o.s. [Descendants of John and Sarah R eynolds of Watertown and Greenwich, p. 17; Stiles, History of Wethersfield ]. There was also a Robert Reinolds of Wethersfield, who "went to the fo rt and died in Saybrook in 1662. His children were: Reinold, Mary, and Han nah." Of this latter we have no further knowledge at all.

It is singular that these four different pioneers were all at different ti mes in Wethersfield, two Johns and two Roberts, and that no clue can be fo und to show relationship or identity. A careful search of the records in H artford should do much toward clearing that up. It is singular that the la st mention of John of Greenwich, then living near Stamford, was in a Green wich deed 1651, and that the history of John of Wethersfield begins abo ut that time. Yet the first John had sons, John and Jonathan, clearly trac ed through the history of Greenwich; and the John of Wethersfield likewi se had sons John and Jonathan who certainly were not the same two of Green wich. The brothers of Greenwich were born about 1636 and 1638 and were mar ried in 1656 and 1668; the two of identical name in Wethersfield were bo rn in 1674 and 1677 and were married in 1693 and 1697. Therefore, we mu st abandon the theory of identity of John and sons John and Jonathan of Gr eenwich with John and sons John and Jonathan of Wethersfield. There is alm ost a generation between them.

The wife of John of Wethersfield was Miss Naomi Latimer, born there Ju ly 4, 1648, whom he married probably about 1665, probably in that town. S he was the daughter of John and Ann Latimer. Her father seems to have di ed prior to 1678 when the above land was given to John Reynolds.

After the death of John, Naomi married (prior to 1700) Philip Goffe. He w as the second son of thirteen children of Philip & Rebecca Goffe (Gough? ), and was b. 1653, being about five years younger that Naomi. He di ed at Wethersfield March 7, 1724. They had a daughter, Naomi, who marri ed Samuel Westcott of Kingstown, R.I.

When John's property was divided up, son John took north side of Highway ( 13 acres); Jonathan south side of highway (11 acres).

The children of John and Naomi Reynolds were born in Wethersfield:
1 Keziah b. 1667. No more known of her.
2 Anne b 1669; m. Robert Davis of Providence (and Warwick), R.I. A mong their children were:

Hannah was the daughter of Leona rd and Sarah Dix of Wethersfield. Marriage entered on Wethersfield recor ds Jany. 3, 1699-1700.

On Jany. 3, 1699-1700 the farm of John's father was divided by a highw ay in Wethersfield. John chose the northern 13 acres and his brother, Jon athan, the southern 11 acres. It seems that none of Jonathan's male child ren had descendants, so that the Wethersfield Family of Reynoldses is a ll descended from John2.

Documented events in his life were:

1. Guardian; 8 Feb 1692/93; Haddam, Middlesex Co., CT 59. Grace Spencer, d aughter of John Spencer, late of Haddam decd., chose her Uncle Nathaniel S pencer to be her Guardian.

Nathaniel married Lydia Bailey 51, daughter of John Bailey and Lydia Backu s. (Lydia Bailey was born about 1659 in Hartford, Hartford Co., CT 51 a nd died before 1729 in Haddam, Middlesex Co., CT 51.)

[NI2368] Gerrard came to America with the first Winthrop Fleet in 1630. He was und er the leadership
of John Winthrop who established the Massachusetts Bay Colony in Cambridg e. The first
mention of Gerrard is in the Cambridge Town records "in the prime of Septe mber 1634, Lots
granted one west side River - Gerrad Spencer 4 ackrs." He moved to Lyn n, MA with his
brother Michael in 1638 and ran the ferry there. The ferry ran from Needha m's Landing in
Lynn to Biards Landing in Saugas. In 1661 he was one of the 28 purchase rs of the town of
Haddam. He was commissioned an Ensign for the town of Haddam on Septemb er 14, 1675. A
pewter flagon and Urim Basin are in the glass case in the rear of the chur ch sancturary at
Haddam.

Colonial Records of Connecticut, Volume 2, published 1852, states on p. 1 82 that "Ensigne
Jarrad Spencer is propownded for a freeman." This entry was made at a Cou rt session held
at Hartford, June 26, 1672. This session was presided over by Governor Jo hn Winthrop, and a
footnote indicates that this session was hastily called in response to a l etter from the King of
England that he had declared war against the States General. The King's le tter advised the
Colonies to make "speedy and effectual provision for their defence again st the Dutch."
Exactly what is meant by the entry regarding Ensign Spencer is unclear.

At page 260-61 of the Colonial Records of Connecticut, Volume 2, Ens. Gerr ard Spencer is
listed as a deputy at a "Generall Court by Speciall Order of the Gouernor ," which met on
July 9, 1675. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the Indian War whi ch broke out in
Plymouth Colony and the danger it presented to the eastern towns in Connec ticut. ("The
Court being mett, they were acquainted wth the occasion of theire meetin g, which was the
present trouble of the Indians now risen against the English, spoyleing a nd destroying of
them by fire and sword . . .")

DIVING EXPEDITION PROBES WRECK BELIEVED TO BE STEAMER LEXINGTON:
By Thomas J. Morgan, Journal-Bulletin Staff Writer

The marine news on the winter day in 1840 showed that the North Atlantic w as taking its usual toll of shipping. The schooner Neptune, bound for Bost on after it had lost over board Capt. Perry. The brig Nester of St. Stephe ns, NB was reported on fire at sea, her crew luckily rescued by another sh ip out of New York.

And the brig Orray Tatt, inbound from St. Marks to New York had been caug ht in a storm for six days when drawing near Long Island her lookout spott ed something in the water. The brig nosed over to investigate and fou nd 40 bales of cotton and a water chest bobbing around.

What the Orray Tatt probably had sighted, although her captain and crew h ad no way of knowing it in the days before radio, was deck cargo that fe ll or was tossed overboard in one of Long Island Sound's most horrendous m arine disasters - the sinking on Jan. 13 of the steamship Lexington. As ma ny as 150 lives were lost, including a number of Rhode Islanders.

The moldering old wreck now lies splintered into three segments about 3 1 /2 miles off Old Field Point on Long Island, according to Clive Cussler, w ho is directing an expedition sponsored by the National Underwater and Mar ine Agency.

Cussler, better known as Auther of "Raise the Titanic" is "85 to 90 perce nt sure" that what the volunteer divers found in recent weeks is the Lexin gton. He announced the discovery last week.

If the weather holds, the divers will do some more exploring today, he sai d.

The wreck lies in about 140 feet of water on "kind of a slope" said Cussle r, and she apparently slid down that slope when she hit bottom, because t he expedition's sonar was able to make out a scar she gouged in the bottom .

"Two years after she sank, salvage divers managed to raise her, " he sai d. "They used grappling hooks until they found her passed cables around h er hull, raised her for a few minutes and took off 30 pounds of silver th at had melted into one lump from the fire. Then the hoisting chains broke.

"She came apart. Our sonar showed three pieces and we dove on the larges t. We found hoisting cables and a large chain wrapped around the wreck.

It was never made clear how the fire started, probably because the death t oll - which included the skipper, Capt. Child - was so high. But there we re 150 bales of cotton aboard, according to Cussler, and they may have be en stacked too close to the smokestack.

One account of the tragedy came from Capt. John Brooks of the steamer Nimr od who met a Capt. Chester Hillard, who was a sailor on the Lexington a nd one of the few survivors. Brooks wrote the following:

"About half past 7 in the evening, heard the cry of fire. He (Hillard) r an on deck and saw the fire bursting thro the wood work around the chimne y. All was confusion and terror in a moment. He ran up to the wheel to add ress running for for the shore, which Capt. Child informed him they were d oing, he being up at the wheel....

"An attempt had been made to rig the fire engine on board, but did not suc ceed. They rushed for the boats and jumped into the number he thin ks of 20 in each and lowered them down, while the boat was was under fu ll head way, and they were filled immediately and he is of the opinion th at not one of them escaped.

"The Life Boat was thrown over but caught in the water wheel and was los t. He saw several floating with life preservers, but Capt. H. thinks non s urvived until morning. He advised to tumbling over the cotton bales and as sisted, he thinks in getting over 10 or 12 and lashed himself to one.

"When the steamboat stopped, which she did from some cause to him unknow n, a man by the name of Cox, employed on board got on with him about 8 o'c lock....

"(Hillard) remained on the bale of cotton and was taken off by Captain Mee ker of sloop Merchant, of Southport. They (the sloop) discovered the fi re soon after it broke out, and attempted to get out of the harbor, b ut it being shallow and the tide falling, they caught aground and did n ot get out until morning tide. Cox died about 8 o'clock on the bale with h im.

"Captain Manchester the pilot and Charles Smith, boat hand and Captain Hil lard are supposed to all that were saved."

Records show that the old paddle-wheeler, one of the fastest ships of it 's day when built for railroad magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt, was carryi ng $20,000 in paper currency and somewhere between $18,000 and $40,0 00 in silver coins (it would have been worth about more than $100,000. 00 at a conservative estimate today, Cussler said).

Vanderbilt put her to work ferrying to New York's upper crust to resor ts in Connecticut and Rhode Island, and sold her a year or two before disa ster struck.

Cussler said he hopes the divers will find some piece of undeniable eviden ce that the wreck is the Lexington - a ship bell or perhaps a signboard wi th her name. Segments of wood that they brought up have been dated by carb on-14 process at Pennsylvania State University and have proved to be 1 00 to 150 years old, he said.

Steamboat
Lexington

Construction on the paddlewheel steamship Lexington began during the mon th of September, 1834 at the Bishop and Simonson shipyard in New York, N ew York. Her hull was 120 feet long and 21 feet wide. The Lexington w as 490 gross tons. Work was personally supervised by Cornelius Vanderbuil t, who ensured that the finest grade of materials would be used. Season ed white oak and yellow pine was used in the box frame design of the hu ll and deck. The strength of the hull was derived from bridge plans in t he publication, Town's Patent for Bridges . Her wood burning, vertical-be am engine was built by the West Point Foundry. Ship furnishings includ ed teak railings, paneling, and stairways. The highest quality of fixtur es was used throughout the ship. Safety was considered in every aspect du ring the planning and construction of the ship. The single smokestack w as encased throughout all decks. Exposed combustable materials were not u sed near the boilers and steampipes. A pipe was fitted into the hull whi ch allowed the hot cinders from the boilers to pass into the water inste ad of on the decks. A fire engine was installed with hoses and pumps. Th ree lifeboats were placed on the Lexington near the stern and a life ra ft on the forward deck. These lifeboats could only carry half of the fu ll complement, but they fit the requirements of the day.

On June 1, 1834, she began service as a day boat between New York, NY a nd Providence, RI. Passengers enjoyed the fastest boat on Long Island Sou nd. Service and accommodations were first class. In 1837 the very succes sful service was moved to Stonington, Connecticut. The New Jersey Steamsh ip Navigation and Transportation Company purchased the Lexington in Decemb er of 1838 for $60,000. The boilers were converted to burn coal, and t he interior was refurbished at a cost of $12,000. The coal fired engin es were force fed by fans, which in turn would drive the steamship even fa ster and hotter.

Daybreak found the Lexington tied up in New York on January 13, 1840. T he morning air was very cold, about zero degrees. Ice was beginning to fo rm on the surface of the water. One hundred and fifty bales of cotton we re loaded under the promenade deck of the steamship. Some of these bal es were placed within a few feet of the smokestack casing. A fire had occ ured in the casing only a few days earlier, but no one took the problem se riously even after repairs were made. It was a mistake that would later p rove disastrous.

For the evenings Long Island Sound crossing, Captain George Child was in c harge of the ship and crew of thirty-four. The regular master, Captain Ja cob Vanderbuilt (Cornelius's brother), was home sick with a cold. A numb er of sea captains were boarding on their way home to see loved ones. Pass engers began arriving in the early afternoon and paid $1.00 for the tr ip to Stonington. The fare was 50 cents if passengers stayed on the deck s, but the temperatures were too cold for anyone. For those passengers tr aveling beyond the Connecticut destination, a train would continue their j ourney to Boston. Adolphus Harnden boarded with $20,000 in silver coins a nd $50,000 in bank notes for the Merchants Bank. The ship took on about 1 15 passengers and departed her dock for the last time around three o'clo ck in the afternoon. The twenty-three foot diameter paddlewheels propell ed the vessel down the East River and around Throgs Neck into Long Isla nd Sound. A brisk north wind was blowing, producing a heavy sea. Additio nal coal was thrown on the fire and the Lexington began to pick up spe ed as she began her journey into the open sea. White caps could be se en on the water as Manhattan drifted into the setting sun.

By six o'clock the passengers were settled in and enjoying dinner. They h ad a choice of baked flounder in a wine sauce or mutton with boiled tomato es. Conversations covered the lastest news, politics, and banking rate s. Some ventured out onto the decks for a short time, only to return quic kly to the warm interior. One table was engrossed in a game of card s. No one knew of the horror that was about to happen.

At seven thirty, a fire was reported by the first mate. Looking out the w heel house, flames could be seen shooting from the aft section of the prom enade deck, near the smokestack casing. Captain Child steered the vess el south toward the north shore of Long Island in an effort to beach he r, but soon the steering became unresponsive. The Lexington then turn ed to a heading of east, on its own, as if trying to out run the flames. T he lines between the rudder and the wheelhouse were burned through. Wi th her steam engine running at full power, the Lexington was now out of co ntrol. The fire quickly engulfed the entire aft section of the ship. Cr ew members in the engine room were forced out by the flames before the eng ins could be shutdown. Launching the lifeboats while the Lexington plow ed through the water was impossible. The fire fighting equipment was n ot deployed properly and any chance of stopping the fire was lost. The si lver coins were dumped onto the deck so the wooden box could be us ed in a bucket brigade. Flames were now as high as the smokestack. Th ey could be seen from the shoreline of Connecticut and Long Island. Ma ny boats in the shoreline marinas were blocked by low tide, ice, and rou gh seas in an attempt to reach the burning steamboat. Captain Child order ed the launching of the lifeboats.

The scene on the decks were of terror and panic. As the crew were prepari ng a boat for launching, passengers stormed the lifeboat, filling it we ll beyond capacity. In the wake of a trashing paddlewheel, the boat and e veryone in it was quickly swept away and lost. The Lexington was slowi ng down, giving some the chance to throw cotton bales over the side as raf ts. By midnight the steamship was burned from bow to stern. Its deck h ad collapsed into the hull. At three o'clock the next morning, the Lexing ton slowly sank into Long Island Sound.

Many people who remained in the water succumbed to the freezing cold wate r. In the end, only four people would survive. All but one of the surviv ors was frostbitten. The Second Mate, David Crowley was able to dig in to the center of a cotton bale to stay warm. He floated for forty-eight h ours until he was washed ashore. He was to keep the bale in his Providenc e, Rhode Island home for many years until he sold it for the Civil War eff ort.

On September 20, 1842, the Lexington was lifted by heavy chains to the sur face, only to break up and sink again into 130 feet of water. A thirty po und melted mass of silver was recovered from inside the hull.

Today the wreck lies broken up across the bottom in anywhere from 80 fe et deep to 140 feet of water. The wreck is covered in wire from the salva ge operation, fishing line, and other wreckage. The bottom is very dar k, cold, and extremely hazardous. Navigation lines are a must. A paddlew heel is located at Loran 26679.1/43979.9 in 80 feet. The bow is at 26652. 1/43962.8 in 140 feet.

[NI2467] Robert Thomas Kernodle was four times sheriff of Alamance County, NC, a nd also represented the county in the state legislature.

[NI2468] The Kernodle Coat of Arms, which is also of Dutch origin, follows:

Arms: Azure, a fret or.
Crest: A leopard passant guardant or.
Motto: Nec Timere, Nec Timide (Neither fear nor be feared)
Note: The above discription of the Kernodle coat of arms simply means th at the principal color of the shielf is azure (blue), with a fret of or (g old) color. The fret itself is an interwover cross with a mascle and bo th are indicative of service in the Crusades, which were Holy Wars to resc ue the tomb of Christ from the Mohammedans. The cross, which appears diag onally from corner to corner, is a symbol of the Cross of Christ and was u sed as an emblem by many Crusanders. The mascle is a diamond shaped figur e, supposed to represent the chain links whcih were wovern together to fo rm the armor worn by the Knights who fought in the Crusades. The leopa rd on the crest is a symbol of strength in similar fashion to the lion, a nd the fact that it is guardant (having it's face turned forward) is a sym bol of vigilance. The motto in Latin is "Nec Timere, Nec Timide" which tr anslates to mean "Neither Fear Nor Be Feared". The colors have meanin g. The blue is the symblo of truth and loyality, while the gold is the sy mbol of generosity and elevation of mind.

[NI2471] SIMON6 LAKEY (JACOB5, SIMON4 LEAKEY, THOMAS3, ALEXANDER2, WILLIAM1
LEAKE) was born April 22, 1822 in Green County, Indiana, and died 1865. H e
married MARTHA DELISA MILLER October 31, 1847 in Seymour, Green County,
Missouri. She was born 1829, and died May 1904 in Near Welch, Oklahoma

Notes for SIMON LAKEY:
Simon Lakey born 1822 Indiana, married Martha Miller 31 October 1847, Gree n
County, Missouri. They were married by an Elder of Christian Church, in
Seymour, Mo. and recorded in
Springfield Mo. the county seat.

Family history from a grandson and granddaughter, Ezra Lakey & Mary
Frances Lakey Shope, has it that this young Redhead immigrated from
Ireland. No family of any kind came with him. He was alone in the New
World. He came over by boat and passed through Pennsylvania, where he met
and married Martha Miller, a Pennsylvanian Dutch woman with flat feet and
floppy ears as characteristic of her people.
Simon was said to have landed in St. Louis, Mo.. There was a good
spring creek near. He was miller enough and knew how to make dams out of
logs. He built a watermill on this creek four miles south and west out of
St. Louis. Now it would be in the middle of St. Louis somewhere. He ground
corn and wheat into flour. This home was said to have been close to the
Mississippi River.
When the Civil War came along, Simon decided to stay home and run his
mill. He joined the homeguard. St. Louis was on the northern side. There
was only one little battle at St. Louis. They shot one horse and one man
down right in Simon's yard. An outlaw tried to take over the mill. Simon
and his sons were in continual danger of snippers, so finally they decided
to leave the mill.
All of the Simon's boys were born at the watermill in St. Louis, but
during the time of the war they moved out near the Kansas line on the
prairie.
After the Civil War was over, Simon took his family back to their hom e
in St. Louis. The mill and land had laid idle for 4 or 5 years, fungus had
gotten into the area. The timber was tall and soil rich. The sun could
scarcely hit inside the mill area. They all started to clear the area. Soo n
all were chilling and Levi had a big "ager cake" in his side. The doctor
told Simon he had to get the boy out of there or he would die. Simon's
decision was to sell and move west on the higher prairie. He sold their
property and bought two wagons and loaded them, but Simon died of "Swamp
Fever" before they could get out of there. Before they could get Simon
buried, the baby girl died.
If we follow research instead of family tradition we find Simon Lakey
was born in Indiana, not Ireland. Simon's son Levi Lakey stated his father
Simon's birth place as Indiana in the 1900 census. Census record of SimonL akey in 1850 census Green County, Mo. and the 1860 census of Falling
Springs, Mo. also give his birth place as Indiana. Both census show Martha
as being born in Tennessee.
9th March 1848 Simon Lakey with his wife, Martha D. was appointed the
administrator of his father Jacob Lakey's estate in Webster County, Mo.,
and also appointed to replace his father as administrator of Boater Bales '
estate in Webster County.

6th July 1848 Simon and his wife bought lot 5, either part of Jacob's
estate or adjoining it. Jacob had lots 6 and 7, Thomas Bales had lot 8. Al l
this land was sold to Pacific Railroad at the same time Jacob's estate lan d
was sold on 2 May 1861.

10 April 1851 Simon and Wife, Martha D. sold land in Green County (no w
Webster Co.) Mo. a little distance away from Jacob Lakey's estate land.
estate, and his wife Martha D., his mother Phoebe (Bales) Lakey, and othe r
brothers and sisters signed the land sale of their father's property in
Webster Co. to the Pacific Railroad. It is intresting to note that Jacob's
Estate included 1/2 of a grist mill sold for $150.

1 May 1865 a note was found indicating $150 was due to Lydia Lakey an d
$150 to Phoebe Lakey daughter of Jacob Lakey who had been minors when Jaco b
Lakey's estate had been settled 1 May 1861. We do not know if the money wa s
given them or not, it was due them through Andrew Lakey (which would
indicate that Simon Lakey was dead or away and no longer administrator)

Martha Delisa Miller
There are many discrepancies in the story of this lady. According to
Ezra, she was born in Oct. or Nov. of 1819 because when she died in May
1904 she was 84 years of age. By the 1850 and 1860 Census she is shown wit h
a birth date of about 1828 and Tennessee as her birthplace.
Thursey Delisa Lakey Wood (Granddaughter) said that she was named for her
two grandmothers, Martha Delisa Lakey and Thursey Jane Stevens.
Martha apparently had four sons and two daughters. When her husband
and baby girl died at the watermill leaving her with her home sold and two
wagons full of her possessions, it is not certain what she did. Ezra
speculated that she staid near and raised her family awhile because the
boys were reported to swim in the Mississippi River. On the otherhand, he
felt the story went something like William got a job and started out on hi s
own leaving Levi as man of the family.
Levi brought his mother and the family on west close to Pittsburg,
Kansas area but still on the Missouri side. The boys seemed to grow up
working in the mines and farming.
Martha married a Clem Kincaide and that was the scattering of the
boys. They all took a marrying spree with Levi getting married last.
Delisa Lakey feels Martha had a hard time in her
life. She said Martha had related picking cotton, taking seeds out of it,
spinning it into thread and weaving it into socks.
Martha married Kincaide while he still had girls at home. She helped
him to raise them. It is believed Martha had at least one child by Kincaid e
according to grandchildren, Ezra and Delisa at one time but later denied.
After Martha's son, Levi, had his wife suddenly die, Martha and her
husband, Kincaide, came to help with raising Levi's children. Levi built a
house for them in the Hog pasture. Martha
apparently was ill most of the time. Delisa Lakey reported that her grandm a
was company, but that was about all. She was poorly. Levi at one time hire d
Mary Frances Lakey, his brother
William's daughter, to come and care for her grandmother
Lakey's and Kincaides at one time were living in a schoolhouse which
was partitioned off with curtains. Mary Frances stayed a few months until
Martha was better. Levi didn't pay Mary Frances but gave her some cloths.
Martha Delisa Miller died at her son Levi's home in May of 1904 near
Welch, Oklahoma. She was buried in Lake cemetery near Bartlett, Kansas. Th e
only record of her death in the cemetery records is "Lakey" in the plot
right next to "Levi Lakey" no date.

Notes for LEVI LAKEY:
Levi was son of Simon Lakey and Martha Delisa Miller Lakey. His
birthday was stated as 15 November 1850 on his death certificate,
Birthplace stated as Douglas County, Missouri.
After Levi's fathers death, Levi took over looking after his mother
and the rest of the children. He didn't get any schooling and couldn't
write his name. It isn't known just when the family
moved but eventually they moved to western Missouri near Pittsburg, Kansas .
The boys all worked in and around the coal mines in Litchfield, Kansas and
Richhill, Missouri.
Levi came into the church young in life. His mother was someway
intrested in an old farmer preacher who held those old camp meetings and
thats where Levi fell in with his uncle in coming down into Oklahoma. The
Gregory's, the Brooks, Magees, Wilman, Stevens, Shopes, were all in
Arkansas around Eureka Springs. Levi met his wife to be, Mary Lavina
Stevens in Green Forest, Arkansas around the old fashioned camp meeting.
Levi didn't mary until after his mother had remarried Levi bought 26 0
acres close to the present Pittsburg, Kansas. He married Mary Lavina
Stevens in Berryville, near Green Forest, 15 September 1889. Marriage was
recorded in Carrollton, Carroll County, Arkansas. They had a son, Wiley, 2 0
July 1890 in Missouri near Southwest City. Then Levi became intrested in
free range land. Also there was no taxes in Oklahoma Territory. The Brooks ,
Gregorys, the Shopes and other friends were around Cowskin Prairie in
Oklahoma Territory. He sold his farm at an auction and they moved to
Oklahoma Territory where Ezra was born 1 August 1892 at Cowskin Prairie,
near Grove, Delaware County, Okla.
The free range should have been grand except it was down among the
Indiana and they stole everything they could. Delisie was born 12 February
1894 at Cowskin Prairie. Next came Grace, 23 April 1896. Then the fateful
year came. Mary was pregnant with their fifth child. Levi was away when sh e
became ill, Levi was driving a wagon for a living and would be away till
the next day, Mary was billious, Sallie Shope got a doctor to come to see
Mary. He was only an old Quack, but Mary had been billious before and had
seen him and it helped. This time there was a difference however, Mary was
pregnant. The doctor gave her Calomel. When Levi arrived home and found hi s
wife so terrible ill, he sent for the Doctor from Springfield, Mo.. When
the Dr. got there he said "all the doctors in the U.S. couldn't save her
now". Levi and Mary's fifth child, Dewey, arrived the next day, 10 April
1898. He was a seven month baby. John and Sally Shope took the baby to car e
for while Mary Lakey was so ill. Levi had a difficult thing to do after hi s
wife passed away in May of 1898. He had no way to care for a newborn. His
other children were small but manageable. Sallie Shope's little boy was
getting older and she wanted a baby to care for. This baby was Levi's
fifth child, Dewey.
When Mary died, Levi was making his home on Drowning Creek in Cowskin
Prairie. Later Levi moved his family to Cabin Creek which was four miles
west and three miles north by the
west side of the hill. From there they moved to Ft. Centralia and lived fo r
a year in an old schoolhouse. It was here Levi's mother became very ill. H e
hired a niece, Mary Frances Lakey, to come and help with her until she wa s
better. Next Levi took his family to a little stone house for a year, then
they moved westward to the Lafon place and stayed there two years. It w
here that his mother died. She was buried in Lake Creek Cemetery near
Bartlett, Kansas.
In 1914 Levi married Becky Harst. They stayed in Oklahoma until 1917
or 1919. Levi had two boys, Orland and Dennis when he and Becky left for
Oregon. There Becky and her new baby and his two sons died during a flu
epidemic in Klamoth Falls, Oregon. Levi returned to Oklahoma in 1921. On 2 3
June 1933 Levi died in the home of his son Wiley at Oswego, Kansas.

[NI2487] Notes for THOMAS LAKEY:
Thomas was born in 1858, the son of Simon Lakey and Martha Delisa
Miller Lakey. He lived with his family until the Civil War. When they
returned to their home after the war, his father and baby sister died of
Swamp fever. Thomas married Mary Alice Sabin, sister of Frank Sabi
Thomas' boys were a rough bunch. One time they had been drinking and
four of them were against another brother. They knifed him but he strong
armed them off. A woman saw it and
brought him into dress his wounds. One of the brothers came back and shot
him with both barrels right in the chest. He said if he couldn't get him
one way, he would get him another.
Ezra said Thomas was a very intelligent man, a fiddle player, a
songster, a real acrobatic, a horse trader and a hard working man. He coul d
pick locks with a wire for anyone getting
locked out, but was so honest none would accuse him of illegal entry.
Thomas could write with either hand.
Thomas died of a freak mine accident. He was bent over shoveling coal
when a small rock fell six or eight inches over his head and broke his
neck.

[NI2489] Notes for SARAH MATILDA LAKEY:
Sarah Matilda Lakey was daughter of Simon Lakey and Martha Delisa
Miller Lakey. She was born 22 December 1861 in Dade County, Missouri

ran a water mill grinding corn and wheat before the Civil War. During the
war they went to western Missouri near the Kansas line. After the war they
returned to clean up their mill and home area. Her father and baby sister
died of Swamp Fever. Levi then took
his mother and the younger children out to western Missouri, near
Pittsburg, Kansas.
Sarah married Frank Sabin, her brother Thomas married his sister, Mar y
Alice Sabin. The Sabins were Atheists. Sarah raised only one child, a girl
Louise or Lois, born in Kansas about 1917. Lois grew to maturity and h ad a
baby Billy. She died in childbirth.
Frank Sabin panned gold, fished, hunted and trapped. He rambled aroun d
a lot. Sarah and Frank visited Mary Frances Lakey and her family in 1920 i n

[NI2582] Left an estate bequeathed to him by his father and held by his descendan ts to 1880 + old Child homestead at foot of Miller Street, Warren.

From the book Plymouth Colony, Its History & People, by Eugene Aubrey Stra tton, comes this information...however, we are not sure if the Child fami ly mentioned here is related to ours....but the locations are close.

"In 1646 Robert Child, Samuel Maverick and some others in Massachusetts se nt a remonstrance and petition to the Bay Colony Court asking for religio us freedom and wider suffrage. It was not well received. Shortly after, o ne of the signers sailed to England in the Supply with a petition to Parli ament asking that the Presbyterian Church be allowed in Massachusetts a nd that the laws of England be established in the Bay under a governor gen eral. The Reverend John Cotton, Sr., preached a sermon just before the sh ip sailed in which he called the petition a Jonah and advised that the pas sage would be extremely rough and the passengers should toss the petiti on in the sea. The passage did get rough, and some of the passengers did t oss what they thought was the petition into the sea, though actually a co py was saved. When the ship reached England, Robert Child's brother John C hild, wrote a pamphlet entitled 'New Englands Jonas Cast Up at London ,' in which he repeated many of the petitioners' grievances, and denied th at a miracle had happened to quiet the sea after the so-called 'Jonas' h ad been thrown overboard. It was in part to answer this attack that the Ma ssachusetts Bay Colony authorities engaged Edward Winslow to go to Engla nd for what would be his last trip.

Winslow responded to 'New Englands Jonas' in a pamphlet of his own whi ch he called 'New England Salamander,' in which he identified William Vass ell as both the 'Salamander' and the real author of 'New Englands Jonas .' Winslow's pamphlet and his personal influence as agent for Massachuset ts were quite successful, and the petitioners' attacks came to nothing. 'N ew Englands Salamander' itself was brilliant political document, a nd in it Winslow shed new light on both Massachusetts and Plymouth."

Jeremiah was made a Freeman in Swansea in 1680 and a Selectman in 1682.
He conveyed a tract of land in Warren, RI, to his son John costing 8
pounds, 16 shillings, as recorded in the Town records of Taunton, MA. He
was called an innkeeper in one land deed, and a merchant in another. 1

John green, a mariner from Newport, RI, made his will at Rehoboth 4 Sept

His wife died 10 December 1723; and he died 26 Janua ry following. EPHRAIM, Watertown, freeman 18 May 1631, may well be thoug ht to have come in the fleet with Winthrop for he had married at Naylan d, County Suffolk 8 February 1625, widow Elizabeth Palmer, and req. ad m. 19 October 1630, had good estate, no children, was deacon, representati ve 1635, 1646, 1649, 1650, and often after, died 13 February 1663, aged 7 0. His will of 10 November preceeding, providing for widow Elizabeth, f or Richard and John Child, probably nephews and Ephraim, another nephew, s on of his brother Benjamin; beside William Bond, senior, made executor joi ntly with his widow and gave a liberal sum annually for support of a to wn school forever. She is conjectured by Dr. Bond, pp. 46, 7, and 15 2, to have been daughter of Jonas Bond of Bury St. Edmunds, grandfath er of our William of Watertown, for she in her will, 11 June 1667, prov ed 1 October following, made him sole executor, calling him loving, cous in i.e. nephew, beside naming his wife and five of his seven living childr en, and Richard, and Benjamin Child, kinsmen of her husband.

RICHARD, Barnstable, married 15 October 1649, Mary, daught er of Robert Linnell of the same, but of issue I am ignorant. RICHARD, Mar shfield, married 24 January 1665, Mary Truant. Miss Thomas, in Geneal. Re g. XII. 68, makes her daughter of Maurice. RICHARD, Watertown, broth er of John of the same, as Bond says, and he makes him born 1631, that m ay seem a year or two before his time, but sooner or later, they bot h, in my opinion were born on this side of the Atlantic, and probably neph ews of Ephraim, who showed them great kindness, as their father must ha ve died early, married 30 March 1662, by Bond, but one record says 17 Apri l, Mehitable Dimick, daughter probably of Thomas of Barnstable, had Richar d, born 30 March 1663, who died before his father; Ephraim, 9 October 166 4, died in few months; Shubael, 19 December 1663, who perished with co ld in confinement, was insane, after marrying and having two children befo re the death of his father; Mehitable; Experience, 26 February 1670; Abiga il, 16 June 1672; Ebenezer, and Hannah, twins 10 November 1674, of which t he son died soon; and his wife died 18 August 1676.

RICHARD, Barnstable, perhaps son of Richard the first, married El izabeth, daughter of John Crocker, who died 15 January 1716, had Samuel, b orn 6 November 1679, died in few years, Elizabeth 23 January 1681, died so on; Thomas, 10 January 1682, baptized 6 April 1684, the same day with Samu el, and their father; Hannah, born 22 January 1684; Timothy, 22 Septemb er 1686; Ebenezer, March 1691; Elizabeth again, 6 June 1692; James, 6, bap tized 18 November 1694; Mercy, 7, baptized 16 May 1697; Joseph, 5 March 17 00; and Thankful, 15 August 1702. He was a deacon. ROBERT, Boston, a physi cian, came from Northfleet, County Kent, was bred at Corpus Christi Colleg e, Cambridge, and proceed. A. B. 1631, A. M. 35, had studied, says Hutc h. I. 145, at Padua, and there, perhaps, had his M. D. may have resid ed a short time at Watertown, united with others of that town in petiti on for the grant of Lancaster; but he was not owner of any land at Waterto wn. In October 1645 he purchased a large tract in Maine, known as the Vin es patent, when the proprietor was going to Barbados, but of course he h ad no purpose to make settlement. See Folsom, 75, 8, and Willis, I. 52. Ne xt year, he greatly alarmed the government of Massachusetts by a petitioni ng for enlargement of privileges, which by Drake, 292, is oddly ascrib ed to Episcopalians, as if that depressed party could gain anything from t he triumphant Presbyterians in Parliament. Our General Court in November t hereupon issued a Declaration, strangely undignified against him and his a ssociates. Part of the denunciation against Child is that he was a bachelo r. Few state papers will afford so much amusement. See Hutch. Coll. 211, a lso Winslow's N. E. Salamander Discover. and Winth. Hist. II. 291. In 16 47 he went home, and did not come back. Of this name, including that of Ch ilds (who, though different, can by no means be distinguished in old recor ds) Farmer saw the graduates in 1828, were, at Harvard five; Yale, four; a nd only three at all the other New England colleges.

> Joseph KENT: Arrived in Dedham, MA, 1645,

....Joseph is one of three brothers....also Joshua and John....no one to
date has traced their uplines/parents, and no one really knows where they
came from in England....and the only/earliest record in the Plymouth Colon ie
shows him mentioned in Elizabeth Hardier's will...a simple bequest, that's
all...to date, that is..

removed to Block Island, RI,

...yes....Joseph joined a group of Braintree MA people who moved, "en
masse", to "New Shoreham", or..."Olde Pork Choppe"(take a look at Block
Island RI's shape...)...and....Susanna(h) Austin George was one of these
Braintree people, as were her parents, who also emigrated to Block
Island...and...this group included not a few Scots, who had been captur ed at
the Battle of Dunbar by Chromwell's troops, and transported to New England ,
and, to pay for their passage, indentured to the Saugus Ironworks....after
which, having worked off their indenture...some decided to go to Block
Island with these Braintree settlers...thus began the close friendship
between Joseph(2) Kent and William Cahoone(Colquahoun)...he later brickwor ks
master at "Swansey" MA...and later, one of the first at Swansea, to die in
the great "King Phillip/Metacom Indian War of 1675...William Cahoone's son
Joseph Cahoone became our Joseph(2) Kent's ward, and married Joseph(2)'s
niece Hannah Kent, daughter of his brother John(2) Kent m. Hannah
Griswold....

...during this time, Joseph is almost certainly the...."young Joseph Kent
who drummed all night and scared away the Indians

Near fight with the local Indians averted by Joseph Kent's drum!
(-Stitches of Block Island, 1876, taken from an account given by Capt. Jam es
Babcock)

"The Indians were wont to treat the English in a surly manner, which moved
the English to suspect they had some evil designs in hand....
The Indians, renewing their insults, with threatening speeches and offerin g
smaller abuses, the English, fearing the consequences, resolved, these
sixteen men and one boy, to make formal challenge to fight this great
company of Indians, near of full out three hundred, in open pitched
battle....
The English marched with their drum beating up a challenge (their
drummer was Joseph Kent, later of Swansea) and advanced....
Thither they came with utmost resolution and warlike
courage, standing the Indians to answer their challenge.
Their drummer being a very active and sprightly man, and skillful
in the business, that drum...was the best piece of their armor.

...he was also one of the three earliest Block Islanders to represent the
Island in the Rhode Island Colonial Assembly at Newport RI....

Arnold's HISTORY OF THE STATE OF RHODE ISLAND includes the following:

"May, 1664. the first regular assembly as established by the
charter met at Newport in May. the affairs of Block Island were definitel y
settled at this session. Three messengers, James Sands, Thomas Terry, and
Joseph Kent appeared from the Island to signify their obedience to His
Majesty's will."

It was during his years of Block Island that Joseph Kent married Susannah
George, whose parents had emigrated from England.

In May, 1664, Mr. Sands with Mr. Joseph Kent, presented to the
General Assembly of Rhode Island, a petition in behalf of the
Islanders that Joseph Kent, Thomas Terry, Peter George1, Simon Ray,
William Harris, Samuel Bearing, John Rathbone, John Davies,
Samuel Staples, Hugh Williams, Robert Guthrig, William Tosh2,
Tollman Bose, William Carboone3, Tristrome Dodge, John Clark, and
William Barker might be admitted as freemen of the Colony of
Rhode Island. The Assembly referred the petition to a committee

1. Peter George was Joseph Kent's father-in-law
2. William (McIn)Tosh was yet another Scots Ironworker from the Saugus
Ironworks come to Block Island
3. William Cahoone/Colquahoun, Joseph Kent's closest friend, also a
transported Scot, moved with
Joseph Kent to help found Swansea MA before 1675.

> Admitted as resident of Swansay, 15 Dec 1675,

....yes, they moved...along with friend William Cahoone/Colquahoun, to
"Swansey", which was just opening up....this was the far western edge of t he
old Plymouth Colonie....and the last part of it to be settled...not lea st of
all, because...immediately west of them, at "Sowams"...now....Warren, Rhod e
Island...was the main(and last) encampment of the Wampanoag Indian
Tribe....(yes, the very one which assisted the Pilgrims during their first
cold winter stay...and...yes, the very tribe who....figured out that they
were being overwhelmed by the white settlers....

...and plenty of "bad blood" and misunderstandings had taken place since
then, between 1620 and 1675...
....and Massasoit's son, the new chief of the Wampanoags, Metacom...or to
the English, "King Phillip"...
...realized it was "now or never", and began....(not without
provocation)...the first-and-worst of New England's
"conflagrations"...during which fully one-third of New England settler's
homes were burned...and over 1/4
of the settlers were killed....

....and ironically....the fathers at Plymouth had sent one of their own,
whom they made one of the "Assistant Governors"...Mr. James
Brown...to...parley with the Wampanoags, as Plymouth's main
"ambassador"...and hopefully...to prevent the imminent conflagration....(n ot
very likely, as Plymouth dragged Metacom to Plymouth in the
most...undiplomatic manner...)
...so...when our Joseph(2) Kent was "admitted as resident of Swansay, 15
December, 1675"...there was more to it than that....you see, the first
whites to be killed, just the month before, in November.... in the King
Phillip War of 1675, were from Swansea...and they included Joseph(2)
Kent's best friend, William Cahoone....so the town fathers of the new
Swansea obviously were well-advised to...register as freemen....any
able-bodied white settler in the area...


....It gets even more interesting.....you see, Joseph(2) Kent's lines beco me
very...intimate...with Asst. Governor of Plymouth's James Brown....through
his...niece-in-law Desire Cushman, wife of (your/my) Samuel(3)
Kent....Desire lived at James Brown's huuuuuggggeeee estate
"Wannamoisett"....with her (Mayflower arriviste) Elizabeth Tilley-Howland
grandmother....and Elizabeth Tilley-Howland's two daughters, Lydia Howland ,
who was James Brown's wife, and....her sister Ruth Howland, who had
married....Thomas Cushman Jr....himself a clergyman at Plympton, and son
of....prominent...Plymouth Colonie clergyman.....Thomas Cushman Sr. m. Mar y
Allerton...he....the only ward of Plymouth's chief religious head, William
Brewster...and...William Brewster's successor as head of the Plymouth Colo ny
Church....

....so you/i am through this Kent line, descendants of....the following fo ur
Mayflower passengers....Elizabeth Tilley...her husband John Howland....the
first Robert Cushman's wife's Mary Allerton's parents....Issac Allerton an d
Mary Norris....
...all through persons living in "Gentleman James Brown of Wannamoisett"'s
ample estate household....
(and for the next five generations....Browns continue to marry Kents....)

...and the scandal is....that....the man sent to "parley with the
Wampanoags"....and...avoid the war....
....ended up owning a huge chunk of the Wampanoag's former remaining lands
at Sowams....
...henceforth referred to as "Wannamoisett"....


Ensign in Swansea Malitia, 1697,

...1697....this is pretty close, if not "right on the money"...for the dat e
that the Plymouth Colonie ceased to exist...swallowed up, as it were, by t he
larger...and more politically successful....Massachusetts Bay Colony...

> Joseph Kent b. England, married 1663 on Block Island, Susannah Austin

...further comment on Block Island.....it's not such a coincidence that th e
Kents and the Cahoones left Block Island at or about 1670....for a numb er of
years, Block Island/New Shoreham was far enough removed from the (Rhode
Island) mainland to be vulnerable to...whatever raiding
ships....French....Pirates....decided to land there....for instance, we he ar
about the disappearance, about this timeframe, of one of the other
ironworks Scots at Block Island, one...William (McIn)Tosh...."kidnapped by
pirates, never to be heard from again"....

...and this couple, my direct Kent ancestors as well, deserves some furthe r
comment, as their headstones at Tyler Point Cemetery at Barrington (MA *an d*
RI)....bore the most interesting message, itself the subject of much
genealogical speculation over two centuries.....

Her tombstone at Tyler's Point, Barrington, reads: "Mrs. Desire Kent, Wido w
of Mr. Samuel Kent, of Barrington, Was the first English Woman's grand
Daughter on New England."

...and...barring....practically no...other direct reference to Desire
Cushman's upline....(until Elizabeth Tilley-Howland's will was scrutinized ,

cryptic message provoked much discussion...

...one last note for Kent/Swansea/Rehoboth/Bristol
County-in-both-colonies/states.....

the RI/MA line changed in the 1800s.....enough so that former Rehoboth MA
land came into the new boundaries of East Providence, RI...and other
machinations of the Warren/Bristol RI line took place as well...involving
the historic "Sowams" Wannamoisett lands....so genealogists working on the
Western Plymouth Colonie will do well to check out records on BOTH SIDES O F
THE STATE LINE....

BARNARD, TALCOTT, WADSWORTH -- On page 322 of the 1846 edition of Hinman 's "Puritan Settlers of Connecticut" appears this statement: "Wadsworth, C apt. Joseph, of Hartford, son of Hon. William, Sen'r., was born in 165 0. He m. for his first wife, Elizabeth, daughter of Bartholomew Barnar d, of Hartford; for his second wife he m. Mary, the widow of John Olcot t. She had been the widow of Thomas Welles, a grandson of Governor Welle s. Her maiden name was Mary Blackleach, daughter of John, Jr. His wife Eli zabeth d. Oct. 26, 1710. His second wife Mary survived him. His children w ere all by his first wife."

In the "Memorial History of Hartford Co., CT," printed in 1886, is a chapt er on the "Original Proprietors" of Hartford, "based on materials collect ed by J. Hammond Trumbull." On page 265 of the first volume it is stated r egarding Joseph Wadsworth, seventh child of William: "Joseph b. ab. 164 7; this was Capt. Joseph, the hero of the Charter, a man of prominence, a nd some turbulence of character; freeman, 1676; Lt. in Philip's War, and a fterward Capt. of the Hartford trainband. He m.

January 16, 1675.

The councill appoynted John Standly, Captaine of part of the forces belong ing to Hartford County; and Joseph Wadsworth to be his Liuetenant.

[NI2963] Died, Oct. 26, 1710.The "Talcott Pedigree in England and America," compil ed by SV Talcott, of Albany, was printed in 1876. On pages 35 and 36 of th is work is a notice of Elizabeth, daughter of Lt.-Col. John Talcott of Har tford, and wife of Joseph Wadsworth. In this notice the statement is ma de regarding Wadsworth: "He married for his first wife Elizabeth, daught er of Bartholomew Barnard, who died Oct. 26, 1710, for his second, Elizabe th Talcott, and for his third Mary Blackleach, widow first of Thomas Well s, and second to John Olcott. His children were all by his first wife."

[NI2964] Came on the ship "The Lion" from England.

Was among the wealthier and more influential proprietors and settlers of H artford. His house lot was nearly co-extensive with the square enclos ed by Asylum, Trumbull, and West Pearl Streets, and the road by the rive r; which continued in the Wadsworth family until 1773, when it went into t he hands of George and William Burr, who were relatives of the family.

The ship Lion cast anchor in Boston harbor Sunday evening, Sept. 16, 163 2. She brought, says Winthrop, "one hundred and twenty-three passengers, w hereof fifty were children, all in good health." They had been aboard twel ve weeks, and eight weeks from Land's End. The ship first made land at Ca pe Ann, and it being foggy could move only by using the lead. She was fi ve days in Massachusetts Bay before coming to anchor before Boston.

The ship Lion had made several trips to America before this one, and had e ach time brought over a few passengers and a load of supplies. Of the o ne hundred and twenty-three passengers on this trip, only the names of abo ut thirty are preserved, and of these the name of William Wadsworth hea ds the list, stating his family to consist of four persons.

William, with his family, went to Newtown, now Cambridge, only three or fo ur miles from Boston. He was a man at this time in middle life, at just wh at age is not known. It has been stated that he was born in the year 160 0, though the year or the place of his birth in England is not definite ly known. Hinman, in his history of the early settlers of Hartford, say s: "In what part of England he was born or emigrated to America from is n ot known. In Farmer's Journal, giving the biography of Hon. James Wadswort h, of Geneseo, New York, he (James) is described as having descended fr om a native of the county of Palatine of Durham," though other places ha ve been designated, probably with equal authority. Those people most famil iar with history incline to the belief that William was a member of Rev. M r. Hooker's church before he came to America. He went to Newtown with tho se people, and helped to induce the reverend gentleman to come to this cou ntry with others of his parishioners, after they arrived here. Rev. Mr. Ho oker's church in England, of which he had pastoral charge, was in Chelmsfo rd, about twenty miles north of the London district, which contained abo ut that time thirty parishes; but from which particular parish these peop le came is yet uncertain. In the reign of Edward the Confessor, Chelmsfo rd was a part of the pope pious of the Bishop of London. The members of M r. Hooker's church were fervently attached to him. Soon after their arriv al here they solicited him to come over; and after his arrival Mr. Wadswor th was in full communion and a member of his band. No one of the family n ow appear to know anything concerning his first wife, as no account is fou nd of her death. It is possible that she died before he came to this count ry. By this wife he had four children: Sarah, who married John Wilcox; Wil liam, who died in infancy; Mary, who married Thomas Stoughton, and John, w ho settled at Farmington. Soon after he removed to Cambridge he was the po ssessor of a house and a home. His residence was on the westerly side of H olyoke Street, near Harvard Square. On his removal to Hartford he sold h is house to Elder Champney.

William Wadsworth was made a freeman Nov. 6th, after his arrival, and wh en the town organized, was chosen a member of the first board of selectme n, holding the office in the years 1634-35. During these years reports we re continually coming to the ears of these settlers of the rich and valuab le unoccupied lands on the Connecticut river. Rev. Mr. Hooker, who h ad in the mean time arrived, and, with most of the members of his churc h, had resolved to remove thither as early as 1635. Several persons from t he Massachusetts Colony did go that year; but this company did not, on acc ount of the opposition of the other settlers. But in 1636 the journey w as undertaken and completed. Among them were William Wadsworth and his fam ily. The distance from Dorchester, where the company started, to what is n ow Hartford, at this time was a long one. There were no bridges and no roa ds. They pursued their course by blazed trees. There were one or two inval ids in the company, to be carried on litters, and lots of small childre n, with no canopy to cover them at night but the starry heavens. The journ ey lasted several days, they largely subsisting on the milk from their her ds of cattle, which they drove along with them. The settlement they call ed Hartford. In 1637 William Wadsworth was chosen collector; from 1642- 47 was one of the selectmen, and throughout his life was one of the most a ctive men of the colony, both in church and state. Hinman says: "In 16 39 he held several important offices in the town and colony, and sustain ed a high rank with the best puritan families of Hartford, both in charact er and wealth." In 1644 he married for a second wife Miss Elizabeth Ston e, daughter of Rev. Samuel Stone. The children by this wife were Samuel, J oseph, Thomas, Elizabeth, Rebecca and Mary. A further account of these chi ldren is given in the genealogical register. William died at Hartford, 167 5, his wife surviving him. In his will he gave nothing to his daughter Sar ah, and but 10 to his son John, by his first wife, who was then married a nd settled at Farmington. It is presumed that they had previously receiv ed their share. He gave to his son Thomas his lands, with buildings thereo n, at East Hartford, upon which he settled. Joseph, of Charter Oak fame, s ettled and died in Hartford; and these three sons of William--John, Thom as and Joseph--are all of his male children that have descendants by the n ame of Wadsworth now living. William's estate at death was 1677 13s 9d. H is widow died 1682.

In 1774, she marri ed a second time to Jacques Campeau, the father of Joseph and Barnabe, how ever these two had no heirs together. Barnabe, married in 1820 to Archan ge McDougall, the granddaughter of his step-mother, Marie Francoise, and h ad sons; Alexander and Barnabe.
The second child of Robert and Marie (Lothmade Barrois) was Marianne, bo rn in 1737 and married in 1760 to Jacques Adhemar St. Martin, frequently c alled La Butte. They lived in the Cass House, which was the St. Martin hom estead deeded to him in 1750. In 1770, Marianne Navarre, the widow of S t. Martin, remarried to Dr. George Christian Anthon who had come to Detro it in 1760. She died October 11, 1776, leaving no heirs by Anthon. Jacqu es Adhemar St. Martin died in 1766, leaving his wife, Marianne and three c hildren:
St. Martin, who died unmarried ;
Finon, who married Philip Fry ;
and Archange, born in 1765, and married August McIntosh, who later inherit ed the estates of the Earldom of Moy. The McIntosh homestead was locat ed on the Canadian shore, across from Belle Isle. They had 10 childr en of which the boys returned to Scotland, and two of the daughters remain ed in Detroit, Mrs. Henry J. Hunt and Miss Catherine McIntosh.
The next child of Robert and Marie (Lothmade) was Robert, also known as, R obishe, the Speaker and was born in 1739. He married in 1762 to Louise Arc hange de Mersac the daughter of Francois and Charlotte Bourassa. The re is also another, Charlotte Bourassa, a cousin, who married in 1760 to C harles de Langlade, a settler of Wisconsin. To Robishe was deeded by the P ottawatomies, their native village called "Ancient Village". This grant w as ratified in Detroit on July 15, 1772. He was blessed with several child ren:
Robert, born in 1764 ;
Jacques, born in 1766, who later settled at River Raisin ;
Francois, born in 1767, and settled in Monroe, where he was deeded 26 apre nts of land. He was also a Colonel during the War of 1812. He was captur ed at Brownstown, where he had gone to negotitate with the Native America ns and was taken prisoner, but fortuneately escaped. His son, Robert, serv ed under Captain Richard Smythe.
Fourth was Isidore, born in 1768 and married in 1795 to Francoise Descompt es Labadie, the daughter of Alexis and Francoise Robert. Their eldest so n, Isidore was born in 1795 and served in the War of 1812.

next is a discripancy, starting with the word, "He", with no given nam e, so I am not sure which Navarre, the source is referring :

He married in 1790, to Marie Suzord, the daughter of Louis and Marie Joset te Lebeau. Their children were:
Robert, born in 1792 ; Francois, born in 1793 ; Victoire, who married in 1 823 to Jacques Godfroy ; Agathe, no other information ; Julie, who died un married ; Monique, who married John Askin.
the next child of Robishe was Archange Louise born in 1770 and marri ed in 1796 to Dominique Gode de Marentette, whose children were :
Francoise Marie (husband: Col. James Askin) : Marianne Navarre (husband: P ierre Godfroy) ; Jeanne (husband: Timothy De Quindre and second: Willi am B. Hunt) ;
Charlotte Soulange, born in 1774 married to Cajetau Tremblay ;
Marianne, born in 1780 was gifted with musical and painting talents. She n ever married however, had several suitors, but remained faithful to a you ng man, that had died suddenly earlier in her life.
Catherine, born in 1782 married Commondore Henry Brevoort, of Lake Erie fa me and a member of the Brevoort's of New York. Their children were:
John (wife: Marie Navarre) ; Robert, who died young ; Anne (husband: Charl es Bristol) ; Elias who settled in New Mexico ;and last, Henry (wife: Ja ne Macomb) left 3 sons, William, Henry; and Elias.
The next child was Monique, who was born in 1789 and was the first wi fe of William Macomb. She died young, leaving one son, Navarre Macomb.
Pierre, born in 1787, settled at the mouth of the Maumee River in 180 7. He became a trusty scout during the War of 1812.
the source now skips to a Francois Marie born in 1759, which I am not ab le to match with the correct Navarre.
Francois Marie, born in 1759 and married to Marie Louise Godere, had the f ollowing children:
Robert, born in 1782 ; Jacques, born in 1788 ; Francois, born in 1790 ; Ar change, born in 1792 ; Antoine, born in 1796 ;
the next sibling to Francois Marie, was Jean Marie Alexis, born in 17 62 ; and married in 1789 to Archange Gode; they had Marie, born in 1793 a nd Alexis;
the next sibling is, Pluyette, born in 1742 ;
then Antoine, born in 1745 ;
Joseph born in 1748, who died young;
Marie Catherine, born in 1749 ;
Bonaventure Marie born in 1750, and died in 1764 ;
and last was Catherine, born in 1757 and married Alexander Macomb.

[NI3265] Dear Cheryl,
From the bottom of my heart I thank you for the wealth of informati on you have sent. The following is a letter I came across, which was se nt to my maternal grandmother, Mildred E. Willis, dated August 4, 1969:

Dear Mildred;

The Miller name came into the family through the first child of Capta in George Child, whose wife was Sarah Maria Beverly. Their first child w as Frances Virginia Child who married Henry F. Miller of Boston, who beca me the founder of the Henry F. Miller Piano Company of Boston.

This was kind of an interesting family. George Henry Child married R osalie Boyd of Providence and died July 18, 1855. Edwin Frost Child marri ed Sarah Wilbur of Providence, moved west and were among the first settle rs of San Francisco, California. Jeanne Beverly Child married Edwin Co le and was, of course, our common direct ancestor. William Comstock Chi ld married Mary MacFarlene and moved to Helena, Montana, where he worked f or Wells Fargo.

Of course, Captain George Child was the captain of the steamer Lexing ton when it burned and sank in New York Harbor. A stone erected in his me mory is in the Beverly lot in North Burial Ground where Sarah Maria Beverl y, her parents, grandparents, her brother and his wife and two of their ch ildren are all buried.

The story to which you refer was related to me by Annie as follows:

Sarah Beverly Child allowed a group of college students from Brown Un iversity to use the kitchen table in her home on Dorrance Street to disse ct a cadaver, which at that time was against the law. The money she recei ved she gave to her son-in-law, Henry F. Miller, so he could buy a pian o, take it apart and see how it was made. From this beginning came the fo unding of the Miller Company.

It is apparent from the examination of the records in Providence th at Sarah Beverly Child was cheated out of her share of her parent's estat e. She was one of three children; her father was one of seven childre n. Her brother and sister both left substantial estates. Her brother's e state exceeded $50,000 in 1864, which would have been very substantial f or those days. Her sister, Alice, left her entire estate to her nieces a nd nephews, children of Henry F. Miller and Frances Virginia Chil

I hope this fill in the gaps, and I'm very glad to hear that Dad is c oming along.

Sincerely,
Grafton H. Willey, III


Of course, most of this information you are already familiar with. W hen was the last time you had opportunity to visit North Burial Grou nd in Providence? Obviously, we share quite a few relatives who are buri ed there. Soon I'd like to sent you some photos of family and familiar pl aces. Do you have any photos of the monument to Capt. George Child?

Hello Cheryl:

I was very interested to read your genealogical webpage. At the Queens Hi storical Society we are researching Thomas and Harriet Truesdell who liv ed from the 1790s until the 1870s. We have gathered quite a bit of inform ation about them and their children. Harriet's maiden name was Lee and s he and Thomas lived in Rhode Island until approximately 1840. Thomas mov ed to NYC and pursued a business there; Harriet and their children join ed him a few years later. The Kennicutt surname figures prominently in h er genealogy. Possibly there is a connection between Harriet and Thomas T ruesdell and your family? Also do you know if David Lee Child is relat ed to your "Childs" or the "Childs" of Woodstock, CT. David and his wife L ydia were very prominent 19th century reformers and edited an abolitioni st newspaper in NYC from 1843 to 1854.

[NI3351] Cheryl,

I'm sorry I took so long to answer you. Somehow I filed your email witho ut responding. I did find an Abigail Crowell but my book says she di ed 14 April 1832 at age 40, not 1834. Could be an error in transcriptio n. It says she is buried with Joseph Crowell and Augusta Bearse and th ey are in Oak Grove Cemetery in the village of Hyannnis.
Joseph's inscription says he died 1836, age 50.
Bearse, Augusta C - died 1912 Aug 14, born 1831 June 2

Hope this is helpful - several people in the state of Missouri were qui te helpful to me recently in my own genealogical quests!

[NI3369] According to the book Genealogy of the Crowell Family, which is sometim es questionable, it lists Higgins wife Ruth as having a surname of Lewis.. .but I am unsure about this data. There is also a second wife listed, a wi dow Patience Coleman, June 1830.

[NI3382] From the book, Cape Cod Library No. 103 comes this: John Crowell (32) of B ass Ponds, married Experience Higgins of Orleans, and had issue: John bo rn in 1721, Ruth, born 1722;, married first Amos O. Kelia, November 26, 17 47, and second James Covel and removed to Bath, Maine; Jeshar, 1724, marri ed Deliverence O. Kelia, 1752; Abner, 1726, married Experience O. Kelia, a nd second Widow Ruth Nickerson of Chatham, daughter of Thomas Hinckley, Ab ner belonged to the Society of Friends, and was a speaker at their month ly meetings, till his second marriage. He was the father of Sylvanus Crowe ll, of whom we give some account. He died on board the British Prison Shi p, at Newport, February 8, 1778; Shubael, b. 1728; Thomas, 1731, married M ercy Stuart, 1750; Jedediah, 1734, married Azubah Baker, 1754 - he drown ed in Bass River; and Genna, 1736, married Bylvanus Baker, 1756.

[NI3387] After marrying James Covel they removed to Bath, Maine.

[NI3388] Also found a different spelling of Jeshar...not sure which is the corre ct one, so I just picked more common spelling for now until I can prove o ne way or another which is proven.

[NI3390] According to a book Cape Cod Library No. 103, Jedediah Crowell was drow ed in Bass River, no date give or year. He was married to Azubah Baker.

[NI3393] Abner is reported to have been a member of the Society of Friends (Quake r) and was a speaker at their meetings, till his second marriage. He was t he father of Sylvanus Crowell, of whom we give some account. He died on bo ard the British Prison Ship, at Newport, RI, February 8, 1778.

[NI3395] I also have her name as Deliverance. Not sure which is really correct.

From Plymouth Colony, Its History & People, by Eugene Aubrey Stratton, com es this bit of Yarmouth history on page 65:

Yarmouth
On 7 January 1638/39, the Court of Assistants granted lands at Mattacheese t, now called Yarmouth 'to Mr. Anthoney Thatcher, Mr. Thomas Howes, Mr. Jo hn Crow(e) and John Coite 'to be equired of.' Coite might have been the m an of that name of Marblehead, but apparently he did not move to Plymou th Colony. Thatcher, How and Crow were proposed as freemen of Yarmouth, al ong with Mr. Marmaduke Mathews, Philip Tabor, William Palmer, Samuel Ride r, William Lumpkin, and Thomas Hatch. It was also specifically noted th at 'Old Worden' (dead), 'Bernell, Wright, and Wat Decille were Psons the re except against,' probably meaning they were not eligible to be given fr eemen status and showing that some form of settlement had already be en in existence. In fact, on 4 September 1638 the General Court ordered t he inhabitants of Sandwich and 'Mattacheese or Yarmouth' to build a brid ge over the Eel River (which was just a bit south of Plymouth town, and h ad to be crossed for travel between Plymouth and the Cape). On 5 March 163 8/39 William Palmer was authorized by the General Court to be the one at Y armouth who would exercise inhabitants in arms, and William Chase was elec ted constable there. It is apparent that earlier Plymouth Court had grant ed land at Yarmouth to tohers also, for on 1 April 1639 in noted that lan ds at Mattacheeset (another confusion of the names, for it should have be en Mattacheeset) were granted to persons who should have inhabited there l ong ago, but did not, and the grantees 'are not likely to come to inhabi te them in their own persons, and lest such as are there should recei ve in unto them unworthy persons, whereof the Court hath lamentable experi nce....the Court doth order that onely such of them wch at persent are the re shall remayne & make use of some lands for their present necessity, b ut shall not divide any portions of lands there either to themselves of a ny others."

"Also on 5 March 1638/39, the General Court ordered that Mr. Nicholas Simp kins, William Palmer, Philip Tabor and Josiah Barnes of Yarmouth be add ed to Thatcher, Howes and Crow(e) as commissioners. They were to make a di vision of planting lands 'to eich man according to his estate and qualliti e.' Joshua Pratt of Plymouth and John Vincent were alson appointed to dete rmine if lands occupied by Andrew Hallett were prejudical to the other set tlers, in which case some rearrangement would be made. On 3 September 16 39 the court decided that Mr. Andrew Hallett could have his great 200-ac re lot. Otherwise, though, the court prohibited anyone in Yarmouth from pu rchasing tow or more house lots and putting up a single house on the m. On 7 October 1639 the General Court ordered the town of Yarmouth to bui ld a pair of stocks and a pound, and the constable was authorized to confi scate goods from anyone who refused to pay an assesment for the costs of t hese, as well as for the travel of Yarmouth commissioners to attend the co urt at Plymouth. Probably reacting from the experience at Sandwich, on 3 M arch 1639/40, the General Court ordered that Yarmouth could accept no mo re inhabitants unless 'they bring certificates from the places whence t he come, under sufficient mens hands of the sd places, of their religio us and honest carriage, wch certyficate shall first be allowed by the gov nr and assistants before such psons be admitted there.' At the same tim e, complaints against Yarmouth commssioners Thatcher, Crow(e) and Howes f or unfair division of lands were rejected, the court approving of their wo rk. By 1643 Yarmouth had forty-nine names on the list of men able to be ar arms.'

JOHN CROW

ORIGIN: Unknown
MIGRATION: 1634
FIRST RESIDENCE: Charlestown
REMOVES: Yarmouth 1638

CHURCH MEMBERSHIP: "Elishua Crowe" was admitted to Charlestown chur ch on 4
January 1634/5 [ChChR8].
FREEMAN: On 18 December 1638, "Mr. John Crow... of Mattacheese, alias Yar mouth," took the oath of allegiance and fidelity and he appears in the app ropriate list for 1639 [PCR 1:107, 8:185]. On 7 January 1638/9, he was pro pounded for freemanship, and on 2 June 1640, he was admitted [PCR 1:108, 1 55]. "Mr. John Crowe" is in the Yarmouth section of the 1639, 1658 a nd 20 May 1670 Plymouth Colony lists of freemen [PCR 5:276, 8:176, 200].
OFFICES: On 7 Jan 1638/9, "Mr. John Crowe" was one of the three men "to w hom the grant of lands at Mattacheeset, now called Yarmouth, is made" [PCR 1:108]. Committee to divide land at Yarmouth, 5 Mar 1638/9 through 7 Mar ch 1647/8 [PCR 1:117, 142,2:128-30].
Committee to hear small causes at Barnstable, Yarmouth and Sandwic h, 2 June 1640, 5 June 1644 [PCR 1:155, 2:73].
Deputy for Yarmouth to Plymouth General Court, 1 June 1641, 7 June 1 642, 6 June 1643 (as "Mr. Crowe, Sr.") [PCR 2:16, 40, 57].
In the Yarmouth section of the 1643 Plymouth Colony list of men ab le to bear arms [PCR 8:194].
ESTATE: In the list of those admitted inhabitants of Charlestown in 16 34 was "Mrs. Crowe who bought Mr. William Jennings [Jennison] his hou se at her arrival whose husband Mr. John Crowe arrived here the year follo wing" [ChTR 11, 15].
In the 1635 accounting of hayground in Charlestown, "MR. Crow" he ld 5 shares, soon increased to six [ChTR 19, 20]. In 1637 "MR. John Crow e" held four cow commons [ChTR 33]. On 6 April 1638, the town of Charlesto wn "agreed to have Mr. Crow's bull for the town's use for this year, allow ing him in consideration three cow commons for this year & liberty to wo rk his bull two days in a week" [ChTR 36]. In the Mystic Side allotmen ts on 23 April 1638,
"Mr. [blank] Crow" had parcels of 25, 50, and zero acres [ChTR 36
On 16 June 1638, "Mr. John Crow of Charlton" sold to "Matthew Averi e" his holdings in Charlestown: "his dwelling house..., with eight acr es of land thereto belonging, lying in Gibbines Field"; four milch cow com mons; five acres of meadow in Mystic Field marshes; twenty-five acres of w oodland in Mystic Field; fifty-five acres in Water Field; and "one ac re of meadow ... situate and lying before the house" [ChBOP 91-92]. (Th is sale was made just
before the compilation of the Charlestown Book of Possessions, and all the se parcels appear in the entry for Matthew Avery in that book [ChBOP 44-45 ].)
Sometime before June 1641, Thomas Makepiece of Dorchester "boug ht a certain house & farm of 200 acres of land whereof some is enclosed ly ing on the east part of Mr. Haynes his farm near Dedham of Mr. Crowe somet ime of Charlestowne" [Lechford 412-13].
On 14 May 1648, Mr. Thatcher, Mr. Howes and Mr. Crow came to an agree ment with the town of Yarmouth regarding their lands, resulting in an allo wance to "Mr. Crow {of} 4 score acres of upland and twenty acres of meado w, whereof some part is taken up already, and the rest to be taken up by h im where he shall find it convenient, and twenty acres he remits to the to wn" [PCR 2:128-29].
On 22 March 1704/5, "Seth Perry of Boston ... brewer and Deborah M an of the same town, widow," sold to "James Converse Junior of Woburn . .. Esq. ... a lot of upland and swamp situate in the township of Woburn af oresaid that did belong to our honored grandfather Mr. John Crow former ly of Charlestown ... gentleman deceased," which parcel of land "contai ns by estimation fifty-three acres" and "hath been for many years in the a ctual possession" of James Converse Jr., "the said Seth Perry & Deborah M an being the only
surviving heirs of Mrs. Elizabeth Perry, whose maiden name was Elizabeth C row, the daughter of Mrs. John Crow aforesaid, now also deceased" [MLR 14: 167-68].

BIRTH: About 1590 based on estimated date of marriage.
DEATH: Probably soon after 2 March 1651/2 (see COMMENTS below).
MARRIAGE: By about 1615 Elishua _______ (assuming she was the mother of a ll his children; the apparent gap between the first two children and the l ast two, however, suggests that there may have been two wives).
CHILDREN:
i YELVERTON, b. say 1615 (possessed one cow common at Charlesto wn in 1637 [ChTR 33]; m. by about 1642 Elizabeth _____(estimated bir th of eldest known child [NEHGR 125:236].
ii ELIZABETH, b. say 1617; m. (1) by 1637 Arthur Perry (eldest kno wn child
b. Boston 20 December 1637 [BVR 5]; m. (2) by 1654 John Gill et (only known child b. Boston 12 October 1654 [BVR 46]; m. (3) Boston (co ntract) 4 December 1657 WILLIAM WARDWELL (1633 Boston) [SPR 4:176; NEHGR 1 2:275, 96:323, Annis Spear Anc. 88,
GMB 3:1923].
iii JOHN, b. say 1635; m. by about 1656 Mehitable ______ (eldest k nown grandchild, son of daughter Mehitable, b. Yarmouth 2 February 1676[7 ?] [MD 2:208, 10:101 (citing Barn PR1:26)]). (John's wife is stated in se veral sources to be Mehitable Miller, daughter of Rev. John Miller, but t he evidence for this has not been seen.
iv MOSES, bp. Charlestown 24 Jun 1637 [ChChR 47]; no further record.

COMMENTS: On 7 September 1641, Plymouth court ordered that "Mr. Edmond Fr eeman ... inflict such punishment upon Mr. Crowe's maid servant, for pilfe ring goods in his house, as according to her fault shall be just and equa l" [PCR 2:24]. On 6 March 1648/9, "Mr. Crow Senior," was presented for rec eiving stolen goods, and was cleared [PCR 2:137].
On 2 October 1650, eighteen men sued "Mr. John Crow, Will{i}am Nicker son, and Lieutenant Will{i}am Palmer, in an action of trespass upon the ca se, to the damage of sixty pound" [PCR 7:50]. On 2 March 1651/2, Mr. Jo hn Crow successfully sued John Wing and Wing's partners [PCR 7:57].
Records for the name John Crow after 1652 do not include the honorif ic "Mr.," and it may be that the immigrant died about this time. The ne xt records for a John Crow are for service on a grand jury on 1 June 16 58 and on a coroner's jury on 6 October 1659 [PCR 3:135, 172], duties th at could have been performed by the son of the immigrant, who had presumab ly attained his majority by this date.
On 6 Mar 1665/6, "John Crow, son of Yelverton Crow," appears in the r ecords, and he is presumably the "John Crow Jr." who is seen on 3 June 16 68 [PCR 4:117, 183].
The "John Crow Senior" who had daughter Hannah born at Yarmou th on 1 April 1677, and who, with wife Mehitable, made a deed on 1 Janua ry 1678 [PCLR 4:279], would then be the son of the immigrant.

BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: In 1971 Stephen Gifford Jr. made a thoughtful examina tion of the relative ages of John and Yelverton Crowe, and concluded th at they were father and son, and not brothers, as had earlier been though t; and we agree with this assessment [NEHGR 125:231-36].
In 1959 John G. Hunt speculated on the English origin of the Crowe a nd Crowell families, and explored the possibilities that they were from Ea st Bilney, Carlton Rode and New Buckenham, Norfolk [TAG 35:173].

From Gail Komar came this note on the Crowell rootsweb.com list:
We research the name and its myriad spellings (about 40 found to date) bo th English and German. The site will tell you about our membership and ab out our DNA study. The Crowe/Crowells of Cape Cod came from Norfolk whi ch was called East Anglia and was given by the English Crown to "Saxons al ong the Rhine River" back in the 800's. And the German Crowls to Ameri ca were Saxons from along the Rhine River. Quite a coincidence don't y ou think!

& children.: [NEHGR 125 (1971):231] proposes that the original immigrants
were John Crowe and Elishua arriving by 1634. Elishua was admitted to the
Charlestown church Jan. 1634/5. That she was Elishua Yelverton is pure
speculation based on the unusual given name of her son, unless Richard
Morgan cited below has a source. Some earlier genealogists placed Yelverto n
as a younger brother of John(1).

Anderson in Grt Migration Begins has a sketch on John Crow and agrees with
Gifford's analysis that Yelverton was son of John (1). Elishua may have be en
the second wife and not Yelverton's mother, based on gap between births of
John's children -- Yelverton say 1615, Elizabeth say 1617, then John(2) sa y
1635. If Elishua is not Yelverton's mother, then she is unlikely to be
Elishua Yelverton. Yelverton and Elizabeth, however, did name their first
daughter Elishua.

Yelverton married Elizabeth --- about 1642 [NEHGR above and Torrey]
The Elizabeth Hammond postulated for her was dau of William of Watertown;
She married Samuel Howes and went to Barnstable; I am not aware of any
reliable source for Elizabeth's maiden name.
Yelverton signed his will "Yelverton Crowell alias Crow."

Yelverton and Elizabeth had first child
John(3) born about 1642; who married Hannah ---, about 1680. Surname
unknown.
First child of John(3) and Hannah from VR Yarmouth:
"Elizabeth Crow the dafter of the above sd John & hanah Crow was borne the
3rd day of agust in the year: 1682"

This John(3) was called Jr, "to distinguish him from his supposed Uncle
John(2), who was called John Sr after death of John" (1). [Gifford NEHGR].
John(2) married Mehitable [Anderson says no evidence she was dau of Rev Jo hn
Miller.]

Sadly, the genealogical fog has not lifted regarding the John
Crow/Crowe/Crowell family of Yarmouth, for many questions still remain,
as evidenced in the recent publication of Robert Charles Anderson's "The
Great Migration: Immigrants to New England" Vol. II (C-F).

1. The immigrant John Crowe's wife Elishua has not been positively
identified as Elishua YELVERTON.

2. Son Yelverton's wife Elizabeth has not been positively identified as
a HAMMOND.

3. Son John's wife Mehitable has not proven to be a MILLER.

4. The identity of grandson John^3 (Yelverton^2, John^1)'s wife Hannah
has also not been established with any degree of certainty.

Amos Otis writing in "Genealogical Notes of Barnstable Families" Vol. I,
p 458 (1888), reprinted by Genealogical Publishing 1979 and 1991, says
that he found no further account of Hannah Hathaway, the daughter of
John Hathaway and Hannah Hallett.

It might be wise to reference "The Hathaways in America" compiled by
Elizabeth Starr Versailles, a three volume work published consecutively
in 1965, 1970 and 1980 (NEHGS circulating library call #s CS/71/H363). I
do not know if Ms. Versailles found anything further on this Hannah
Hathaway.

According to the Records of the Second Church of Scituate [NEHGSR
57:178] the older children of Cornet John Buck and his wife Elizabeth
Holbrooke were baptized en masse on 4 Oct 1663 (including John, Hannah,
Elizabeth, Mary & Joseph), Susanna on 21 Aug 1664 and Benjamin on 10 Jun
1666 [NEHGSR 57:178], Deborah on 16 Apr 1671 [NEHGSR 57:180], and Rachel
on 4 Oct 1674 [NEHGSR 57:181].

The most current treatment of the John Crow/Crowe/Crowell family is
found in Anderson's recent Great Migration Vol. II, (C-F), which I
include herewith:

I have a question which maybe can not be answer by anyone!

I have seen the following information John Crowell married a Hannah ( ?
) before 1680 and had several children by this Hannah.

Elizabeth Crowell, August 03, 1682
Jabez Crowell, April 03, 1683
Deliverance Crowell, January 11, 1685/86
Hannah Crowell, December 01, 1687
John Crowell, December 05, 1689
Susannah Crowell, November 11, 1691
Experience Crowell, January 29, 1694/95
Joseph Crowell, September 30, 1696
Mary Crowell, June 26, 1698
Reliance Crowell, January 02, 1699/00
Mercy Crowell, May 15, 1702
Rachel Crowell, January 30, 1703/04
Ephraim Crowell, November 14, 1706
Vital Records of Yarmouth, Mass.

Genealogist and historians do not know who this Hannah was but I seen
Hannah Hathaway b: May 01, 1662 resided from Barnstable as a possible
spouse and I have seen Hannah Buck b: 1661 in Duxbury, Plymouth Co.

Now looking at the probability of naming the children at their
grandparents, this is the information I have.

Hannah Hathaway, father John Hathaway, mother Hannah Hallet
Hannah Buck, father Cornet JOHN BUCK , mother ELIZABETH HOLBROOK

Who are Jabez and Deliverance named for?

What is the probability of a marriage from Yarmouth John Crowell and
Hannah from Barnstable or Duxbury? One is definitely farther away.

John being the first born from Yelverton Crowell and Elizabeth ( )
would he not married someone local? Duxbury seems farther than
Barnstable.

Any insight would be appreciated?

[NI3424] The surname Bean (meaning lively one) is of old and acient origin, dati
from the dim and misty years of the 8th and 9th centuries. Scotland was t hen
a wild and savage land in which there was little government. The people h ad
wholly to take care of themselves. As time passed there was a tendency f or
several families to associate together into a band or clan for their mutu al
benefit. Typically, members of a clan were from one articular family, b ut
the clan included anyone within the clan chief's sphere of influence.

Many different opinions exist as to the origin of the name Bean. It is
commonly pronounced Bane, and being aspirated in the genitive, it becom
MacBhean. While some are of the opinion that the appellation was given fr om
the fair complexion of the founder of the clan, other believe that the te rm
simply arose from the circumstances of living in a high country; Beann bei ng
the Gaelic name for a mountain. The derivation from complexion seems
exceedingly probable, as that is the most usual mode of personal distincti on
among the Gal; and hence it will account for many of the name being fou nd in
disconnected parts of the highlands. One of the ancient Scottish King s, is
Donald Bn, and all those called Bain or Bayne, must have obtained the na me
from a "fair featured" ancestor. R. R. McIan Esq, "The Clans of the
Scottish Highlands, Illustrated by Appropriate Figures, Displaying Their

11-2-1738, at Kingston, NH, Mary (Prescott) (Coleman) Crosby, b. 6-11-1677 ,
d. 1-3-1740, Kingston, the dau. of James and Mary (Boulter) Prescott. The re
were no ch. by this m. She had been m. twice before the union with James.
1st she m. 11-2-1699, Jabez Coleman. He was b. 5-27-1668, the son of Tobi as
and Ann Coleman. He and his son, Joseph, were killed at Kingston, 9-4-172 4.
Six years later Mary m. 11-9-1730, Thomas Crosby. He d. and she then m.
James Bean. James joined Kingston Church 10-22-1725, his 2nd wife, Sarah,
was also a member and at her death the pastor of the Church included some
remarks about her in his Official Church Records.
She was a very devoted Christian, and a mother who served her family and
God with all her heart. She suffered a long illness before her death whic h
was a time of sorrow to the entire community.
She was a greatly beloved women in all of Kingston, NH, and the pastor tel ls
of her steadfastness in the face of the Valley of Shadow of Death. She wa s
one of the queens in the household of the Clan MacBean in America. Little
is known of James 1st wife. She prob. d. right after the birth of Edward.
James had 9 ch., 2 by 1st wife and 7 by 2nd.
James Bean became a large landowner in Kingston. His holdings began with
a plot of 30 acres he received as a grant from the town of Exeter 2-21-169 8.
He also had land deeded to him from his father. Old land records show tha t
he owned several farms in that part of Exeter which later became Kingston.
He was a man of high esteem in his community.
James Bean was one of those rare men about whom authors delight to write.
He was a rather small man, of slight build. He probably was several inche s
short of 6 feet tall, and was thin and wiry. He was a quiet man who talke d
only when required, but when he did he was listened to. Probably this tra it
came from his early days as an Indian fighter and as a hunter and trapper.
He served in the Indian Wars from the time he was a very young man until
after the withdrawal of the Indians from New Hampshire after 1710. James
Bean could well be looked upon as an Indian Scout of the first Water. Had
he the "yen" for publicity such as other Indian Scouts had in the early da ys
of New England, such as Daniel Boone of Kentucky had, his name could have
become famous in Indian lore. But his backward and quiet disposition
forbade this. He did his work in the wars with efficiency and dispatch an d
then quietly went back to his farm. It would appear that his normal actio ns
would betray the kind of man he was in different circumstances. At home o n
the farm he appeared to be one who could have no place in war, but on the
trail fighting Indians, he was a fighting man to be admired and feared. I t
is said that he could "smell" an Indian and "read" their presence when no
other white man could. He was crafty, sly and vicious when in action as a
Scout. The character of this man will be seen in the story of his attempt
to rescue his three nieces from the Indians who kidnapped them on July 22,
1710 and carried them away to Canada. In was James and his brother, Danie l
served as a team, and they perfectly complimented each other. Daniel w as a
large man and more of a flamboyant nature and big hearted. They both
learned the craft of the deep forests while trappers, and they learned it
well. When there was an emergency in the town where Indians were feared,
they usually called for James and Daniel Bean.
Among the sons of John (Mac)Bean of Exeter, James has the largest family o f
descendants by far. His sons and daus. were strong men and women, both
physically and morally and spiritually, and they all without exception
became very prominent men in their chosen community. John -3 lived at
Brentwood all his life and was a respected member of the community. Edwar d
moved to Nottingham, NH and was the father of "The Beans of Mt. Vernon, ME ,"
Benjamin lv. at Eastham MA but drowned in Exeter River as a young man.
Joseph lv. at Kingston and became the "father of the Beans of Salisbury, N H"
Jeremiah in late life settled his sons on land he bought for them between
Candia and Deerfield, NH. He was the famous "Deacon Bean of Kingston."
Samuel settled his sons as pioneers at Perrystown (Sutton) NH and became
"the father of the Beans at No. Hatley, Que., Glover, VT, and Corinth, ME. "
Even though Benjamin died so young he became the "father of the Beans at
Conway, NH"

[NI3433] Gustavus Franklin Swift was the founder of the Swift meat-processing
company in Chicago. He was born 24 June 1839 in Sagamore (then part of
Sandwich), and died 29 Mar 1903 in Chicago. GF Swift was selling
livestock even as a child in Sandwich. Around 1860, he apparently saw
opportunity in Eastham, setting up a butcher shop there, and he married
Ann Mariah Higgins there on 3 Jan 1861. They soon moved to Barnstable,
then Clinton MA, Chelsea MA, Albany NY, and finally to Chicago in 1875.
Ann (aka Annie Maria) was b. 13 Aug 1843 in Eastham, and d. 19 May 1922 in
Chicago. Their daughter Helen wrote that she lived in 6 places before she
was 6 years old.
Two of their children wrote books about the family. Louis Franklin Swi ft
(b. 1861 in West Sandwich, d. 1937 in Chicago) co-wrote, with Arthur Van
Vlissingen, "The Yankee of the Yards. The biography of Gustavus Franklin
Swift," 1927. Chicago & New York: AW Shaw). It's largely an homage to his
father and a description of the business. I've posted 2 chapters which
Cape Codders may be interested in, at
http://capecodhistory.us/books/GFSwift.htm.
Higgins decendent was part of the deleveopment of this company and anoth er was a manager in one of it plants in the Windy City.
Helen (Swift) (Morris) Neilson (b. 1869 in Barnstable, d. 1945 in
Chicago) wrote "My Father and My Mother" (Chicago: privately printed,
1937.) I found it to be a much more entertaining and informative book than
her brother's, with anecdotes about her siblings, grandmothers and uncles,
as well as her parents. I've posted the whole book, a large file (340 KB)
plus illustrations, at
http://capecodhistory.us/books/Swift-FatherMother.htm. Helen was energetic
and pampered, and this contrasts with her much poorer and thriftier Cape
Cod grandmothers. I particularly appreciate the anecdote about her uncle,
Noble Swift, teasing his former church congregation.

Many, many thanks for this highly informative posting, and especially f or the links to the books. My 2nd great grandfather was Joshua Warren Hig gins, brother-in-law and erstwhile business partner of Gustavus Franklin S wift. I actually have a photo (very faded and fragile -- needs restoratio n) of the Swift & Higgins butcher shop in Barnstable. After Swift relocat ed to Chicago, Joshua Warren Higggins removed to Lawrence, Massachusett s, where he and his sons established a prosperous butcher shop and groce ry store. I have photos of that shop as well, and of his spacious and att ractive home in Lawrence. The family business connection continued into t he next generation -- my great grandfather, Guy Irving Colby (son-in-l aw of Joshua Warren Higgins) moved from Massachusetts to Chicago in 18 87 or 1888 to work for the Swift Meat Packing Co., and he later managed th eir plant in Springfield.

Extensive information on the ancestry of Joshua Warren and Ann Maria(h) Hi ggins can be found in Katharine Chapin Higgins' monumental 792 page wo rk on the descendants of the immigrant Richard Higgins, who came from Engl and to New Plymouth Colony in 1632 or 1633. The addendum to this book al so has a fair amount of data on the children and grandchildren of Gustav us Franklin Swift and Ann Maria(h) Higgins.

In addition, I have quite a lot of information on the descendants of Josh ua Warren Higgins, including a virtually complete data base on all descend ants of his daughter, Lucy Maria(h) Higgins (my great grandmother). Incid entally, all of our family records (and Katharine Chapin Higgins' book) sh ow that family name to be spelled "Maria" (without the "h"), though fami ly tradition has it being pronounced as though the "h" were present.

I am copying this posting to my father's cousin, Dell Siscine Colby Southe r, who is not a member of the MABARNST list. So far as I know, she is t he only living great grandchild of Joshua Warren Higgins.

Thanks again for this great posting.

Cheryl,

Looks like she's in my line as well. She was a sister of my gr-gr-grandfa ther, Oliver Cason. Here's her family group. It shows John's father as T homas Cason, which we know. The next two generations, William and Roge r, are speculation still at this point, but there are so few Casons in t he area at that time (mid-1700s) that there are only so many suspects. Ho pe this helps!

Robert Cushman and son Thomas came to Plymouth (Plimoth) in the ship "Fort une" in 1621 - when Thomas was 14, Robert returned to England leaving h is son in the care of Gov. Bradford, ruling elder of the Church at Plymou th for many years.

From Plymouth Colony, It's History & People, 1620-1691, by Eugene Aubrey S tratton, comes the following infomation on Thomas Cushman...

"Governor Bradford wondered "How came it to pass that so many wicked perso ns and profane people should so quickly come over into this new land?" Pa rt of the was directed at the servant class, but he could not blame it a ll on servants. Thomas Cushman, son of the ruling elder who had secceed ed Brewster, was ordered in 1664 to pay 5 pounds for 'carnall coppulatio n' with his later wife, Ruth Howland, the daughter of Mayflower passenge rs John Howland and Elizabeth (Tilley) Howland, though the court obvserv ed in this case the sin had occurred "before the marriage but after contra ct." It would seem an unsually long contract, for the child being bo rn on 4 October 1664 and the marriage did not take place until 17 Novemb er 1664."

Also from this same book comes this: "An example of the conflicting vie ws in the mind of one person can be seen in Rev. John Cotton, the son of t he distinguished Rev. John Cotton, who has been called "the patiarch of N ew England," and the uncle of of the also justly famed Rev. Cotton Mathe r. The younger John Cotton graduated from Harvard in 1657 and in 1666 he w as invited to become minister of the Plymouth Church, a position he held f rom 1669-1697. For his oridination "Elder Thomas Cushman gave the charg e, and the aged Mr. John Howland was appointed by the church to join in im position of hands."

[NI3504] Cutter - New England Families, Vol. P. and Vol. iv Page 1941, 1695. Mayflo wer - 1620 AE 28 - 13th of list of 41 signers of the Mayflower Compact. El izabeth came with her parents and uncle none of whom survived the first wi nter in Plymouth.

John Howland, the immigrant ancestor, came to this country in the Mayflow er in 1620 at the age of 28 years, indicating a birth date of approximate ly 1592 - in England. His name was 13th on the list of 41 who signed the C ompact in the cabin of the Mayflower on Nov. 21, 1620 estabishing the init ial form of government for the colony. One writer, Prince, says that he w as one of Governor Carver's family at that time. He was one of the ten m en who chose the place of settlement at Plymouth (Plimoth) and, in the Ply mouth records, he is mentioned first as one of the freemen and as thi rd in the Governor's council of seven. He was an assessor in 1633, serv ed on a jury in 1636, was Deputy to the General Court in 1652, 1653, 165 4, 1655, 1656, 1661, 1666, 1667 and 1670, and was a selectman in 166 6. In 1670, he refused to serve in public office any further, being th en 80 years old. He was very active and prominent in the church and was Ma nager of the Colony of the trading post on the Kennebec River in Maine. H is home was in that part of Plymoth which was then called Rocky Nook. He d ied Feb 23, 1673 and his will is dated May 29, 1672 was proved March 5, 16 73. Though an inscription on his tombstone state that he married a daught er of Governor Carver, we know from Governor Bradford's history that Carv er had no daughter and that he married Elizabeth Tilley, daughter of Jo hn Tilley who came in the Mayflower. Since both John Tilley and his wife a nd his brother, Edward and his wife died in the first winter, it is like ly that the young Elizabeth, now orphaned was taken in and raised as pa rt of Governor Carver's family, since at the time of her parents' death, s he was 14 years old.

From the book Plymouth Colony, Its History & People by Eugene Aubrey Strat ton, comes the following information:

"The 23 of February, 1672/73, Mr. John Howland, Senir of the town of Plymo uth, deceased. Hee was a godly man and an ancient profesor in the way es of Christ; hee liveduntil hee attained above 80 yeares in the world. H ee was one of the first comers into this land, and proved a useful instrum ent of good in his place & was the last man that was left of those that ca me over in the shipp called the May Flower, that had lived in Plymouth; h ee was with honor intered att the towne of Plymouth on the 25 of Februar y, 1672.

John Howland had been part of Plymouth above fifty years. Though there we re still a few Mayflower passengers surviving outside of Plymouth, virtual ly all the old guard were gone now. Governor Prence, too, having arriv ed in 1621 on the Fortune, had spent more than fifty years in interwini ng his life with that of the Colony. Though reputed to be a strict ma n, a severe man, he must have been in some way, repesentive of at least t he freemen of the colony, for after the death of Bradford they continul ly reelected him governor until the day he died."

On page 98 of the same book comes this information: "Many of the famili es associtated with Plymouth in its earliest days removed to this newly op ened area, including the adjoining Saconnet, later to be called Little Com pton, where land was granted on 4 June 1661 to some of the former servan ts who had been promised land by their contracts. There were Howlands, fr om the families of Arthur and Henry, the brothers of John; several third-g eneration Aldens; some Soules; some Samsons; a Cuthbertson, now shorten ed to Cutbert; the Jennry family; Palmers; Delanos; and others. Of cour se not all of these were necessarily religious dissenters, but is a fact t hat Baptist and Quaker meetings were active in Dartmouth and Little Compto n, but no Congregational Church was estabished in either during the lifeti me of Plymouth Colony. As of 29 May 1670 Dartmouth had only seven freem en residents: John Cooke, John Russell, James Shaw, Arthur Hathaway, Willi am Spooner, Samuel Hicks and William Palmer."

From the book Mayflower, by Nathaniel Philbrick, comes these notes starti ng on page 32: "In the fall of 1620, the Mayflower's ability to steady her self in a gale produced a most deceptive tranquillity for a young indentur ed servant named John Howland. As the Mayflower lay ahull, Howland apparen tly grew restless down below. He saw no reason why he could not venture o ut of the fetid depths of the 'tween decks for just a moment. After more t han a month as a passenger ship, the Mayflower was no longer a sweet shi p, and Howland wanted some air. So he climbed a ladder to one of the hatch es and stepped onto the deck.

Howland was from the inland town of Fenstanton, Huntingdonshire, and he qu ickly discovered that the deck of a tempest-tossed ship was no place f or a landsman. Even if the ship had found her own still point, the gale co ntinued to rage with astonishing violence around her. The shriek of the wi nd through the rope rigging was terrifying, as was the sight of those towe ring, spume-flecked waves. The Mayflower lurched suddenly to leeward, Howl and staggered to the ship's rail and tumbled into the sea.

That should have been the end of him. But dangling over the side and trail ing behind the ship was the topsail halyard, the rope used to raise and lo wer the upper sail. Howland was in his midtwenties and strong, and when h is hand found the halyard, he gripped the rope with such feral desperati on that even though we was pulled down more than ten feet below the ocean 's surface, he never let go. Several sailors to up the halyard and haul ed Howland back in, finally snagging him with a boat hook and dragging h im unto the deck.

When Bradford wrote about this incident more than a decade later, John How land was not only alive and well, but he and his wife, Elizabeth (nee Till ey) were on their way to raising ten children, who would, in turn, produ ce an astounding eighty-eight grandchildren. A Puritan believed that evert hing happened for a reason. Whether it was the salvation of John Howla nd or the sudden death of the young sailor, it occurred because G-d had ma de it so. If something good happened to the Saints, it was inevitabley int erperted as a sign of divine sanction. But it something bad happened, it d idn't necessarily mean that G-d disapproved; it might mean that he was tes ting them for a higher purpose. And as they all knew, the true test was y et to come.

[NI3505] Though an inscription on his tombstone state that he married a daught er of Governor Carver, we know from Governor Bradford's history that Carv er had no daughter and that he married Elizabeth Tilley, daughter of Jo hn Tilley who came in the Mayflower. Since both John Tilley and his wife a nd his brother, Edward and his wife died in the first winter, it is like ly that the young Elizabeth, now orphaned was taken in and raised as pa rt of Governor Carver's family, since at the time of her parents' death, s he was 14 years old.

[NI3521] Cutter's New England Families. John Tilley and his wife Ann came over on t he Mayflower, but neither of them survivied the first winter. A broth er to John also came and died that same winter, leaving their daughter Eli zabeth alone.

[NI3524] In Nathaniel Philbrick's book Mayflower he makes the following observatio ns and comments, some taken from letters by Robert and others from lette rs and other documents of the time. After deciding they would leave Leide n, Holand for America, the Pilgrim's demonstrated an extraonrdinary tale nt for getting duped.

"With Brewster in hiding, the Pilgrims looked to their deacon John Carve r, probably in his midthirties, and Robert Cushman, forty-one, to car ry on negotiations with the appropriate offiials in London. By June 161 9, Carver and Cushman had succeded in securing a patent from the Virgin ia Company. But the Pilgrim's plans were still far from complete. They h ad a patent but had not, as of yet, figured out how they were going to fin ance the endeavor. But William Bradford's faith in the undertaking w as so strong that he sold his house in the spring of 1619.

Soon after, disturbing news came from London. Robert Cushman reported th at a group of very similar to their own had recently met with disast er on a voyage to America. Led by a Mr. Blackwell, 180 English Separtati st from Emden, Holland, had sailed that winter for Virginia. By the time t he ship had reached America, 130 of the emigrants, including Blackwell we re dead. '[T]hey were packed together like herrings,' Cushman wrote. "Th ey had amongst them the flux, and also want of fresh water, so as it is he re rather wondered at that so many are alive, than so many are dead." Stil l, the news was deeply troubling to those in Leiden and many of them beg an to have second thoughts about sailing to America. Even Cushman had to a dmit that he, a grocer and woolcomber originally from Canterbury, felt ove rwhelmed by the challenges and responsibilites of organizings the voyag e. "It doth often trouble me," he wrote, "to think that in this busine ss we are all to learn and none to teach."

"About this time some representatives from Holland having heard of the Pil grims' intention to relocate to America, "made them fair offers" concerni ng a possible settlement. But the Pilgrims declined. It would have been im possible to reassert their English identity in a Dutch colony. What th ey do not seem to have taken into account was the possible danger of spurn ing this particular overture. The Dutch, still several years from foundi ng a colony at Manhattan, appear to have begun work covertly to block t he Pilgrim's subsequent attempts to settle in this strategic location.

.....
As the Pilgrims prepared to depart in the spring of 1620, Weston's true na ture began to reveal itself. He now claimed that circumstances had change d, making it necessary to adjust the orginal agreement. He had hoped to se cure a fishing monopoly for the settlement, but it was now clear that th is was not possible. Many of his fellow Adventurers, he maintained were in clined to back out. If the merchants in London were to come forward with t he necessary funds, the Pilgrims must agree to dedicate all their ti me to working for the company. Instead of having two days a week for thems elves, they must spend every minute laboring for the Adventurers. Robins on and the Pilgrims in Leiden vehemently objected, claiming that the new t erms were "fitter for thieves and bondslaves than honest men." Making matt ers worse was that Robert Cushman had agreed to Weston's new terms witho ut consulting the rest of them back in Leiden."

In the end, Robert Cushman chickened out of the voyage to America. He h ad been under a lot of stress and complained of a heavy chest. but liv ed at least 5 years beyond that time.

[NI3526] The immigrant ancestor of this line of descent in America was

he was a "Saint" rather than a "Stranger", he was eventually forced
out of the colony because of questionable business transactions.

Mr. Willey was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar Association in 1951, a nd to the Rhode Island Bar Association in 1952. He then joined the Rhode I sland law firm of Swan, Kennedy & Smith.

In 1956, Mr. Willey started his own firm, and was soon joined by Hora ce A. Weller and S. Everett Wilkins, becoming a prominent corporate and es tate attorney. In 1971 his firm merged with one headed by the late Gov. De nnis J. Roberts, and practiced under the name of Roberts & Willey Lt d. In 1979 he left that firm and opened a firm with L.

Active in many civic, social and political organizations, Mr. Willey recen tly completed a four-year term as president of the Rhode Island Historic al Society. During his tenure, the Heritage Harbor Museum project was star ted. He was a 35-year member of the Providence Rotary Club, and a recipie nt of the Paul Harris Fellow award.

Banks of Cole River site of Old RR Station, late settled on ?

From the book Plymouth Colony, Its History & People, by Eugene Aubrey Stra tton comes the following passage about Hugh Cole and friends.

"Mr. James Browne was the son of the late liberal Plymouth Colony Assista nt John Browne. The court went on to observe that the continuance of of My les and Brown at Rehoboth was prejudicial to town and church; howeve r, if they would remove their meeting to some other place where there w as no church, and would 'give us any reasonable satisfaction respecting th eir principles, wee know not but they may be pmitted by this govment s oe to doe.' Hence there founding of nearby Swansea with Thomas Willett. Re cently discovered Swansea Church records mention the name of Thomas Willet t, but do not necessarily show that he was a member, and the probably atte nded the Swansea Baptist Church without joining. The nine freemen residen ts in Swansea as of 29 May 1670 were Thomas Willett, James Browne, John Al len, Nicholas Tanner, Nathaniel Peck, Hugh Cole, Zachariah Eddy, Samuel Lu ther and John Myles, Jr."

Salisbury, the first of this line who came to America from England in 1648 ,son of John Salisbury of
Llanrhaidr, Wales, 14th Generation. He disposed on May 12, 1656, that he w as
34 years of age, and if this be true he was born in 1622. He was in
Dorchester as early as 1648. He was, for a time, herdsman of the town catt le.
He settled in Milton, formally part of Dorchester and he signed an agreeme nt
regarding the parsonage land May 18, 1664. He removed to Swansea,
Massachusettes as early as 1671, being the first of the name in the tow n. A
list of the men of Swansea, eight soldiers recorded at Plymouth, includes
the name of William and John Salisbury. They were the first victims of Kin g
Philip's War. Both were buried June 24, 1675. John was doubtless the
unmarried son of William. William married Sussannah, who was admitted to
full communion at the Dorchester church, 7 May 1677, and was dismissed to
the Milton church 18 September 1681. Another marriage year is listed as 16 58

Swansea, Bristol, Massachusettes.

From the book, Plymouth Colony, Its History & People, by Eugene Aubrey Str atton, on page131 there is this about William and John Salisbury:

"It actually appears that the first man killed in the war (King Phillip 's War) was an Indian...John Easton, deputy governor of Rhode Island, wro te a narrative in which he describes events in the Swansea area of 23 J un 1675. The Indians were looting various deserted houses when two white m en, an old man and a boy appeared on the scene. Seeing three Indians run o ut of a house, the old man told the boy to shoot, which he did. One Indi an was hit, but got away. Later some Indians came to the garrison and ask ed why they shot the Indian, letting them know he had died. The boy sa id it was no matter. Some of the other tried to let the Indians know th at they did not feel so callous about the death, but the Indians went aw ay in haste. Easton wrote that the next day, 24 Jun, Indians returned a nd shot and killed the boy who had shot the Indian, his father and five ot her white men. A comtemporary letter from an unidentified Boston mercha nt to a friend in London reported something similar, saying that a m an at Swansea, his wife and his son of about twenty were shot Indians. T he wife was defiled by the Indians who also 'skinned her head, as also t he son.' Richard LeBaron Bowen, in his history of Rehoboth, noted that rec ords showed only one father and son killed, William and John Salisbur y, on 24 June. Thus, Bowen concluded that John Salisbury started the wa r, prompted by his father, whom Bowen called "a third rank inhabitant of S wansea." However, as is shown by her appearance in later records, Mrs. Sal isbury did not die in this fight, which brings into question whether Bowen 's supposition was correct. Benjamin Church later recalled that on a mar ch of 30 June past the burned houses of south Swansea, the English troop s, witnessed this gruesome sight: 'And soon after, eight more at Mattapois et, upon whose bodies they [the Indians] exercised more than brutish barba rities, beheading, dismembering and mangling them and exposing them in t he most inhuman manner, which gashed and ghosty objects struck a damp on a ll beholders...They marched until they came to the narrow of the nec k, at a place called Keekkamuit, where they took down the heads of eight E nglishmen that were killed at the head of Metapoiset Neck and set upon pol es, after the barbarous manner of the savages.' Vital records sent to Plym outh by Nicholas Tanner, Swansea Town Clerk, showed that nine males were b uried at Swansea, on 24 [sic] June: Gershom Cobb, Joseph Lewis, John Salis bury, John Jones, John Fall, Nehemiah Allen, Robert Jones, William Lohun a nd William Salisbury (a tenth William Hamon was killed later and buri ed on 29 June"

...and here is a contemporary account of William Salisbury's death/massac re,
along with his son John...
"A contemporary letter from an unidentified Boston merchant to a friend in
London reported something similar, saying that a man at Swansea, his wife,
and his son of about twenty were shot by Indians. The wife was defiled by
the Indians, who also "skinned her head, as also the son." Richard LeBaron
Bowen, in his history of Rehoboth, noted that records showed only one fath er
and son killed, William and John Salisbury, on 24 June.
Thus, bowen concluded that John Salisbury started the war, prompted by his
father, whom Bowen called "a third rank inhabitant of Swansea." However, a s
is shown by her appearance in later records, Mrs. Salisbury did not die in
this fight, which brings into question whether Bowen's supposition was
correct."

[NI3670] From the book Plymouth Colony, Its History & People, by Eugene Aubrey Stra tton.

"Coloniest were forbidden to trade alcohol and munitions with the India ns and the records are full of penalties for those who disobeyed. The reas oning behind the alcohol prohibition was exlained in a 1654 court orde r, ' Wheras there hath been great abuse by trading wine and other strong l iquors with the Indians, wherby they drinke themselves drunk and in thei re drunkenes comitt horred wickednes, as murthering theire nearest relatio ns, etc., as by sadd and woefull experience is made manifest, it is theref ore ordered, that noe pson or psons whatsoever, from this time, trade a ny strong liquors, directly on indirectly to the Indians.' On 2 October 16 58 Lydia, the wife of Henry Taylor, was fined five shillings strong wat er to an Indian; on 5 March 1660/61, James Cole and Gyles Rickard, ordina ry keepers, were each fined ten shillings for selling wine or liquors to I ndians; On 3 March 1662/63 Ephaim Doane, Thomas Ridman, John Knowles and J ohn Wilson were each fined twenty five shillings for trading liquors wi th the Indians; on 2 July 1667 Samuel Fuller, Jr. was fined twenty shillin gs for selling liquor to the Indians; in there were many other such cases ."

Page 57: "There were other things to do at Plymouth, the same court that p rovided for soldiers to help the Connecticut settlers, among other action s, also fined Edward Foster and James Cole for selling less than legal mea sures of alcholic spirts; gave notice to the towns of Sciuate and Duxbu ry that they had but a limited time to set up their stocks fr criminal pun shments and pounds for keeping stray animals, warned those who had not y et recorded their cattle brands that they would be fined ; and ordered th at there would be a guard of twelce musketeers to accompany the govern or on Sundays and special occasions."

On June 1, 1641 he received a gra nt for land near Follens Pond on Nobscusset Territory (now known as Yarmou th,Massachusetts). His grant was not within the bounds of Dennis,Massachus etts. In 1658 he had a grant of 10 acres near his father-in-law in Eastha m, Massachusetts. The town records list him as cooper, blacksmith and surv eyor.

Francis Baker is on the ship passenger list of the PLANTER (ship's capta in Nicholas Trarice), which sailed from London, England in April 1635 a nd arrived in Boston MA on Sunday, 7 June 1635. That passenger list is inc luded in an 1874 book with a very long title shown below, with the Intern et URL where the book was found: "2 April 1635 - Theis [sic- these] underw ritten are to be transported to New England, imbarqued in the PLANTER, Nic holas Trarice, Mr. [master], bound thither, the pties [parties] have broug ht certificates from the Minister of St. Albans, Hertfordshire, and attest acon [sic] from the Justices of peace, according to the Lords order. --- F rancis Baker, a tylor [tailor] -- 24 [years old]" (1)

"Genealogical Notes of Barnstable Families" states:

"The Baker families at Hyannis are descendants of Francis, who settl ed in Yarmouth. Their pedigree is as follows: Francis Baker, from Great S t. Albans, Hertfordshire, England, came over in the Planter, 1635, aged 2 4, married in 1641, Isabel Twining, and had six sons and two daughters. Sa muel, the eldest, born Oct. 29, 1670, married July 30, 1702, Elizabeth Ber ry, and had three sons and five daughters; the eldest son, Judah, born Au g. 19, 1705, married Feb. 15, 1728-9, Mercy Burgess, and had three sons a nd five daughters; the oldest son, Timothy, born Apr. 21, 1732, married -- ---, 1753, Kesia, and had six sons (one of whom was the father of the pres ent Capt. Timothy Baker), and three daughters.
The descendants of Francis Baker of Yarmouth, may be numbered by tens of t housands. None have been very much distinguished; but among them will be f ound very many able seamen, and good businessmen." (6)

"The First Settlers of Eastham, Mass." by David Hamblen, Member of the N. E. Historic-Genealogical Society:

FRANCIS BAKER, m. -------, chn. Samuel, b. May 1, 1648; Daniel, b. Sep t. 2, 1650. Both of the above born at Yarmouth." (7)

"Peirce's Colonial Lists" (pages 71-72) shows the officers of the Plymou th Colony militia:

Location: Duxbury [just north of Plymouth town]
Rank: Ensign [a rank below lieutenant]
Name of Officer: FRANCIS BAKER
Date of Commission: 2 October 1689
Date of Discharge: ....1691

It is questionable that this entry refers to our Francis Baker. Our Franc is was 78 years old in 1689 and 80 years old in 1691--pretty o ld to be an officer in the Colonial militia. Additionally, our Francis mov ed to Yarmouth on Cape Cod sometime before 1648. Yarmouth is quite some di stance south of Duxbury. (8)

"Peirce's Colonial Lists" (pages 14-15) states:

Yarmouth, Incorporated September 3, 1639, Indian name--Marracheese or Nobs cuset.
- 1653 Constables: Francis Baker. (8)

"Peirce's Colonial Lists" (page 20) states:

- 1648 Surveyor of Highways: Francis Baker (8)


It is said that Francis Baker and Isabel Twining were ancestors of Winst on Churchill, but I have not confirmed this.

Providence, RI

Dear Mr. Willey:

Thank you for your letter of 24 January and the family group sheets for Da niel Baker. Enclosed you will find the information for Benjamin and Thom as Gage. We have been searching for the home of Thomas Gage in England wit hout success. It was thought that Thomas was a brother or son of John Ga ge (who settled in Ipswich, Mass.). However, the link has never been estab lished.

I have researched and compiled information on all 5 branches of the Gage f amilies in America. In addition we find 2 Canadian families. Also, the re is the English family of Gage, known as the "Firle" Gages. This is t he family of Thomas Gage, the General of Revolutionary war fame. I do exce pt any and all Gage data. Everything is printed in the Gage Family Newslet ter which goes out each quarter. There is always need for filler material.

Hope I have helped you in some small measure. If I can send you anything e lse please let me know. Good luck and thank you for kind consideration.

Sincerely,
John A. Gage

THOMAS GAGE OF YARMOUTH, HARWICH, MASS

Information taken from a Memorial compiled by Dr. Howard Paker Moore, form erly of New York, NY. This material is in possession of the Columbia Coun ty Association at Valatie, NY.

He was probably born around 1620 to 1630 on English origin. When he ca me to America is not known. After 1640 large scale immigrations from Engla nd dried up. After 15 years Charles I, during a turbulent reign, lost cont rol when the "Long Parliament" (1640-1660) began. Fewer people had to fl ee the country. During this period nevertheless, settlers arrived in New E ngland from the old country in small numbers. Perhaps Thomas came as a you th. Hotten's lists do not disclose his name or any clue.

From the year 1650, a period of 35 years, he was always poor in this world 's goods. He failed to get ahead and few of his descendants have done mu ch better. Wether he lacked intelligent initiative, was set back by indlen ce or bad habits, or was simply overwhelmed by disaster on the sea or in o ccupations connected with it, was hazardous. After gains were establish ed by the hardest of the toil, bad luck, such as the loss of a vessel, how ever small, would have wipe out the rewards of decades of effort. An ev il hour of storms and stress would defeat the manliest of endeavors.

There is nothing in the records to impugn the character of Thomas Gage. T he character of his children, grandchildren and later progeny is ma de up by sterling traits. When, during successive migrations, the natu re of the soil was good, the Gages did well. When the ventures were ill ch osen, they were unsuccessful. Many families in New England made the mista ke of continuing to reside where Nature permitted few successes. They we re disinclined to risk costly removals. Few seem to have had the hardiho od to pull up stakes, sacrifice their little gains and try it elsewhere. F ewer still appear to have had the discernment that thin soil would not sup port many generations. The record of the Gage family was, perhaps, no bett er or no worse than many others.

HIS MARRIAGE TO HANNAH KNIGHT

There seems to be no record of the marriage of young Gage to Hannah Knigh t, the daughter of William Knight, from Berkshire Co, England. Knight appe ared in 1637 in Salem, MA. and bought land in Lynn, MA, 1638. That the mar riage was as early as 1648 is plain enough. The first bid of real knowled ge we have is in Plymouth Co., vital records of 1650.

The young couple left Lynn before her father died. Thomas Gage was a marin er, a calling flexible in point of residence. He had for some five years b een living with his young family in the town of Yarmouth on Cap Cod a lo ng way from Lynn and having no ascertainable connection with it. But, foll owing the sea was like that. It was not uncommon for men in that line in a ll settlements to be somewhat careless of the rigid regulations of the chu rch. In 1655 he runs afoul of one of them and was arrested of "prophani ng the Lord's day" in putting to sea from Sandwich (a nearby port) in h is boat. There may have been a fine, possible an admonition. The poi nt is that discipline had to be maintained. This would have especially imp ortant to newcomers. Thomas Gage was not then a citizen. Two years later ( in 1657) he took the oath of fidelity, the final step. In the very next ye ar he was one of the town Officals. "Surveyor of Highways." He served in t he same capacity in 1666, 1667 and 1678.

THE HOME OF THE YOUNG GAGE FAMILY

The house must have been a primitive structure. It was on "Gages Way" ne ar Boardman's island (sometimes Boreman's) not far from where the prese nt main highway runs east and west through West Harwich villiage, that pa rt of Yarmouth having become a part of the town of Harwich. There was a be nd in the little river, Herring River, and the "Way" (now called Smith's L ane) ran from Gage's housing and wharf as a means of communication with t he "island." The narrow river was a tidal contortion at one point almst ca used an island, and it was so-called when in 1690 Gage sold it to Major Jo hn Freeman, one of the most prominent citizens. The marsy area was term ed "Swan Point Neck" about that time.

In 1678 the island and been granted to Thomas Gage, Thomas Boardman and Wi lliam Griffith, their heirs forever as joint and equal proprieters in th is language; "That meadow in Herring River in neck almost compassed abo ut by the river on east and north and by cedar swamps on the west. A narr ow entrance into which neck at the south and in this neck two or three kno lls of upland which are compassed round by the aforesaid meadow, which kno wll or uplands, we have given and granted, etc."

The value of the marshland was fr hay, but the knolls, rising 5 or 10 fe et above the salt water level would be available for cultivated crops. T he area is practically worthless today and has been for most of the 300 ye ar history of white men. The sluggish river, but slightly changed by fresh ets from above or tidal action from the nearby sea, shows on the U. S. Geo logical survey of 1940 much as those early seekers of fortune found it.

There was, however, an important source of sustenance and profit in the co ming of vast quantities of alweives and other fish in the spring, to spa wn in the ponds of the upper river. Town regulations provided that any slu ices kept by the inhabitants must be left open at those periods to facilit ate the movement of the fish. The settlers depended in no small measu re on the fish, fresh and cured for food and fertilizer.

None of the primitive families ever got rich and the poor salt marsh count ry looks much the same as when they arrived in search of easier conditio ns tht farming among the rocky pastures and house lots of other section s. Populous seaside resorts and neat villages now surround the spot whe re Thomas Gage sought to raise a family and leave them better off.

His will named male issue (but there were probably some daughters) in th is order: Benjamin, Thomas, Adam, John, William, Henry and Moses. the nam es imply that the influence of the Gage antecedent was strong. If Engli sh records are ever looked into these names might be found as progenito rs of the Gage line.

THE END OF HIS LIFE

In the nineteen remaining years of his life, Tomas Gage felt his losses. T he declension of his hopes and plans continued but what the family d id is not shown even in the short and simple annals of the poor. Time w as running out with the immigrant ancestor of the family now possibly in h is 70's and perhaps feeble and useless. On 30 June 1695, feeling his end w as approaching, he called in his neighbors John Chase and Isaac Chase to w itness the cxecution of his will. He was illiterate or at least to i ll to sign his name. The instrument was short, as was perhaps his time--

"To my son Benjamin all my estate be it whatsoever and wheresoever it i s, only to my wife, I give one shilling and to my son Thomas 5 shilings a nd to all my other children each a shilling.

KING PHILLIP'S WAR

A terrible fight with the Indians took place near Seekonk on 26 March, 167 6. Captain Michael Pierce was slain and with him nearly every one of h is 55 men. Among them were no less that three sons of Thomas Gage. A lett er written by a clergyman after the event, gave the names of five soldie rs from Yarmouth who were lost on that day, three of them being in one fam ily, John, William and Henry Gage. Thomas Gage had in addition to his grie vious loss, to pay a heavy assessement to support the maintenance of the s oldiers to fight the aroused and predatory savages. The list of the 29 Apr il shows his share as 2 pounds 6 shillings and 9 pence. The sons were hard ly of of their teens. Later, two other sons went; Adam in 1691 went o ut as a soldier in their majesty's service and was slain, this in his fath er's lifetime. Thomas was killed at Port Royal, Annapolis, Nova Scot ia by cannon ball passing though his tent. Only Benjamin, the oldest and M oses the youngest child died in their beds.

Note: Canochet, the Indian Cheif in the "Seekonk fight" called by Fiske, n ear Pawtuxet suffered the loss of 140 of his best warriors. Ten days late r, Capt. Dennison with his Connecticut company defeated and captured Canoc het. The proud son of Miantenomo met the same fate as his father. He was h anded over to the Mohicans and tomahawked. The power of King Phillip was b roken and on 12 August he was killed in the last fight. The hearts of ever yone in the colonies was lightened, even those in the homes of the bereave d.

Land was granted the survivors of King Phillip's War and their heirs. Gran ted to the men from Plymouth Colony was Narragansett No 7 (now Gorham, Mai ne) and the heir4s of William, Henry and John appear as three of the grant ees of this township, 3 Feb 1738. From New England Historical and Genealog ical Register, Volume 53, 1899; 18 April 1735 the legislator made a gra nt of 7 townships so-called to such of the survivors of King Phillip's W ar and their heirs as could prove their claim, 120 to a township. Moses Ga ge, by a deed recorded with York deeds, book 23, folio 224, conveys to h is son John Gage of Dover, NH, Mariner two whole rights or shares in a cer tain township being General Court of Massachusetts to certain Narraganse tt soldiers, being that township which were entered to my two brothers Jo hn Gage and William Gage of Yarmouth, deceased. While Henry Gage was o ne of the three grantees listed there is no record of any person enteri ng an appearance to secure the grant, although to all appearences a gra nt was made. To whom is not known from the existing records.

A letter to the Secretary of State of Massachusetts brought a reply from t he Archives Division which included photostatic copies of the Archives Vol ume 114, page 109. They confirmed the grants were made but nothing to sh ow who exercised those rights. There were 39 grantees in this township fr om Yarmouth, Mass.

Samuel Barker for his father, Samuel William Gray for is father William Ri chard Taylour alived for himself. William Chase alive-for himself.

For the heirs of:
Daniel Baker James Mather Lammy Hodge
Samuel Baker John Gage Jonathan Smith
William Baker William Gage John Thatcher
John Chase Henry Gage Samuel Thomas
James Claghorn Henry Gold Thomas Thornton
John Crowell Jabez Gorham Joseph Welden
Yelverton Crowell John Gorham Ananias Wing
Thomas Felton William Gray Jonathan Whight
John Pugsley John Matthew Nathaniel Hall
Samuel Jones Samuel Hall Thomas Baxter
Joseph Hall

The names listed are of no particular importance except to show a communi ty of interest in the families living at Yarmouth at the time. The Gages w ere associated with them in various ways. Thomas Gage and Joseph Hallet te were charged with prophaning the Lord's day by putting forth to sea fr om Sandwich Harbor. The Gage brothers fought under Captain John Gorh am at Seekonk and Mt. Hope. Matthew Gage was married to Hannah Thorp by Jo hn Gorham and and various of the children of the Gage families living at Y armouth at the time married with the families of the Barker, Baker, Cromwe ll, Baxter, Hall and Smith families.

The heirs of John, William and Henry Gage were given grants in Narragans et No. 7 described in the Proprieter's record book, Town of Gorham, Maine.
William Gage received lot #49 for 30 acres, which drew later Right #24 f or 100 acres, Right #76 for 70 acres, a total of 200 acres.
Henry Gage received lot #50 for 30 acres which drew later Right #4 for 1 00 acres, Right #91 for 70 acres, a total of 200 acres.
John Gage received lot #54 for 30 acres, which drew later Right #117 for 1 00 acres, Right #25 for 70 acres for a total of 200 acres.
These shares, lots and rights could be sold by it's owner and most of th em were. Sometimes there is a York Deed transfer and sometimes only a nota tion in the Properieter's record book. These lots and rights were on on sa le in Falmouth (Portland). There is no mention of any Gage settling in Gor hamtown. There is a pretty complete tax list of 1763, just before incorpor ation of the Plantation, but there is no Gage recorded. They did not g et on any church record, although the church establishment goes back to 17 50.

The parcels of land involved are readily located today. Originally a sha re sold for about 10 pounds in silver. The price depended if there was a ny mast timbers on the lot. There were very few original owners settli ng in Gorham, and probably none from Yarmouth. Gorhamtown being away fr om the coast was not considered very desirable property except for timberi ng.

Moses Gage, as the oldest male representative of the surviving family clai med the lands granted to his brothers John and William, and he despos ed of this land by conveyance to his eldest son John by Deed recorded in Y ork deeds. This same Moses Gage, for services in an expedition of Sir Will iam Phips, against Canada in 1690, made two other claims for grants of la nd elsewhere. In 1735 the General Court of Massachusetts granted certain s o-called "Canada Townships" to the survivors or their heirs of soldie rs in the above expedition. These were at Halestown or Weare, NH. Subseque ntly on settlement of a boundary dispute between Massachusetts and New Ham sphire, in June 1765, a new grant was made to the survivors or heirs at Ra ymond, Maine. Moses Gage had two of these grants, one in his own rig ht as a survivor, and the other in the right of his brother Adam Gage. Aga in evidently as the eldest male representative of the surviving family. Ad am Gage had been killed in the acton of 1690 and though we know he was mar ried he evidently left no surviving male issue.

We have no record of a transfer in owership but we can presume that Mos es either conveyed in his lifetime or willed at his death the land to h is two sons, John and William. On 15 Dec 1766 John Gage conveyed one who le right in the town of Weare to Jonathan Dow. William Gage on 11 July 17 71 conveyed his right in the township of Raymond to Nathaneil Jone s. It is apparent that Moses was an alert man. He claimed everything he w as entitled to for his won service and as the eldest male, the rights of t hree brothers killed in two different wars. It is inferred that he would h ave claimed the rights of his brother Henry Gage also, if he had been lega lly entitled to do so.

Henry Gage's grant Lot 50 with rights #4 and #91 were sold at vendue (publ ic sale) in Falmouth (Portland) on 20 November 1743 for 13 pounds. Henry G age was a "delinquent proprietor." There was pressure on the propriete rs to build a meeting house, engage a minister and teacher, "spot" road a nd other matter, to bring forward the settlement. Henry Gage was delinque nt so his land was sold at public sale and he gave up his share. The rig ht was purchased by Gamaliel Pote, a young man who had married in August 1 743 and desired to estabish a home in Gorhamtown.

Henry Gage was not necessarily a resident of Gorhamtown, although for th at period between 1735 when the grants were made and 1743 when the share w as sold, he could have been. It is believed that Henry Gage claimed his gr ant and if he ever was at Gorhamtown, he quickly removed himself and was n ever really a part of the community. He is not on any of the community rec ords, tax lists or church records, and when his land was sold he was o ut of the picture completely.

Braintree men were dropped as selectmen. From then on John Brown was the
dominant power in Seekonk, then named Rehoboth, and Walter Palmer left.

Charlestowne church."
FROM: "History of Stonington"R A Wheeler, p 506. After inspecting the
area of Stonington, Palmer found that his preferred tract with salt marsh
grass for his stock was owned by Gov. Hayes so he visited the Gov, along
with his son-in-law Thomas Miner, and bought the 300 acres from him for
100, with such cattle as the Gov should select from Palmer's stock. The
contract, dated 15 July 1653, recognized the house and lands currently
occupied by Thomas Miner within the bounds of the Gov's grant and gave
Miner right of occupancy until he could build himself a new house.
FROM: "Groups of Palmer Families" Emily W Leavitt, 1901, pp 11-13
After his purchase from Haynes, Palmer added to his holdings to the south
and on the eastern slope of Togwonk, crossing Anguilla Brook so that his
total was about twelve hundred acres. Attending church in New London
required gowing by sea in rough weather or by land and crossing two
rivers. When Rev William Thompson of Braintree started missionary work
among the Indians he would also preach for the planters, his first
meeting was 22 March 1657 in Walter
Palmer's. When the planters also formed the "Asotiation of Poquatuck
Peple" Mass supported them and its Court decreed in Sept 1658 that from
the Mystic to the Pawcatuc Rivers would be part of Suffolk Co, Mass. and
be called Southerton. Local officials were then selected and the town
bounds extended 8 miles inland. By 13 May 1661 a first meeting house was
raised. Finally, John Winthrop Jr obtained a new Conn. Charter from
Charles II setting the Colony boundary at the Pawcatuc River and
Southerton became Stonington, New London Co, Ct.

As copied from the Proprietors' Records:

About the year 1643, a joint agreement was made by the inhabitan ts of Sea conk alias Rehoboth, ffor the bringing in of their estates; th at soe men's lotments might be taken up according to person and estat e, as alsoe for the carrieing on of all publick chardges both for prese nt and future; furthermore the means and interest of what is heare express ed is that by which lands, now granted by the Court of Plymouth to the tow ne, is to be divided according to person and estate, as is expressed in t he following list:

Listed is Walter Palmer...

This action was probably taken before any other division of la nd was made, unless perhaps it was that assigning house lots. A subseque nt meeting of the proprietors was held,the date of which was destroy ed in the records, at which it was voted that nine men shoud be chos ed to order the general affairs of the plantations; they were givenpow er to sell the lands "in lots of twelve, eight, or six acres, as in the ir discretion they think the quality of the estate of the person do requir e." This provision applied to the house-lots. Als that no person should se ll his improvements "but to such as the town shall accpt of'" also it w as voted "that the meeting house shall stand in the midst of said town."

A town meeting was held in Rehoboth on the 31st of June, 164 4, at which lots were drawn for a division of the woodland between the pla in and the town. Fifty-eight shares were drawn as follows:

18. Walter PALMER
Up to July, 1644, there had been three separate allotments of la nd made in Seekonk, and on the 5th of that month it was ordered that all w ho had allotments in either of the three divisions "presently to be laid o ut by Mr. OLIVER and his partner, Joseph FISHER," and who did not pay of t he surveys either at Boston or Dedham by the 28th of the following Octobe r, should forfeit their lands so laid out. The nine men chosen on the 9 th of December, 1644, to direct public affairs wee the following: A'exand er WINCHESTER, Richard WRIGHT, Henry SMITH, Edward SMITH, Walter PALMER, W illiam SMITH, Stephen PAYNE, Richard BOWEN, and Robert MARTIN. On the 10 th of the succeeding January, at a meeting of the townsmen, it was agre ed that eighteen men should forfeit their lands for not fencing them, " or not removing thier families according to a former order." These men we re the following: Ralph SHEPHERD, James BROWNE, Mr. LEONARD, The Governor 's lot, Matthew PRATT, Thomas DUNN, John MEGGS, Thomas COOPER, John SUTTO N, Mr. PECK, Obadiah HOLMES, James WALKER, Edward GILMAN, Thomas HOLBROOK E, John HOLBROOKE, Mr. BROWNE, Edward PATTESON and Ephraim HUNT. Probab ly these men conformed to the requirements and retained their lands. At t he same meeting all those men having lots on the neck ofland were reuir ed to fence so much as the number of his acres cometh to." by the 15th d ay of the second month, or pay two shillings for every rod not fence
Thus far the inhabitants of this large tract of territory consid ered themselves residents of Seekonk, and the meetings all bear that dat e. Though they purchased their land of the Plymouth Colony, yet their comp act made when they became inhabitants of Seekonk indicates that they fe lt a large measure of independence. They were subsequently claimed by bo th the Plymouth and the Massachusetts Colonies. In 1645 they submitt ed to the jurisdiction of the Plymouth Court and were incorporated with t he name of Rehoboth, which was given by Mr. NEWMAN, the pasto
Following this important action, the records contain the followi ng list of names with the register of thier lands; many of these have alre ady been mentioned, but there are also manynew ones, who became settlers s omewhere in the territory of the towns into which Rehoboth was afterwar ds divided:

Rehoboth, MA. Lenox and Sarah married in about 1714 in Scituate, MA.
Lenox owned land on Rocky River in the southern part of Rehoboth on what

Body of Message:

I have been to our library and reviewed all the published data on Leona rd Dix and Deborah Dix; Watertown, MA Vital Records; Torries early marriag es; histories of Watertown MA; Wethersfield, Brandford, New Haven and Wind sor CT.

The only record of a Deborah Dix was the notation of her birth 7/20/168 0, d/o John and Elizabeth Dix; There is no other record of her anywhere e lse. This Deborah is too young to be the mother of Leonard Dix.

But she may be the Deborah Dix who married Richard Barnes in Marlboroug h, MA. NO: DEBORAH DICKS MARRIED RICHARD BARNES 12/16/1667, 12 YEA RS BEFORE THE BIRTH OF THE ABOVE DEBORAH.

The only Dixs in the proprietor land records in early Watertown, MA are th at of Edward Dix and Joseph Dix.

In 1633, the 'Griffin' left England for Massachusetts Bay Colony. Among th ose on board were 3 emminant ministers: Mr Cotton (who remained in Boston ); and Misters Hooker and Stone. Mr Hooker was a pastor, ordained for a co ngregation at Newtowne (Watertown, MA), that came over with him from the a rea of Earl's Colne in Essex, England (neighboring Wethersfeild).

Abt 1635, Mister Stone accompanied Mister Hooker and members of his congre gation for the Connecticut River area. The group moved to CT along with la nd agents from Cambridge, MA, who had already scoped out the area.

Before them, in 1634, John Oldham led some of the impatient inhabitan ts of Watertown, MA overland and began a settlement at (1636 Watertow ne Ct -> 1638 Wethersfeild, so named by the General Court at Hartford.")

Leonard Dix may well have gone to CT in any of these groups or immigrat ed directly there from England, if he was not Dutch. Land records indica te he was there by 1645.

I found no birth or marriage record for him, nor records of the births / b aptisms of his children. Some of the early church records were lost or nev er existed. NOR have I found the name Leonard in any of the records of t he Dutch Reformed Church of New Netherlands. Leonard does not appe ar to be a Dutch name.

I know not where the identity of Leonard's children was obtained, althou gh it may have been from his will probated in Hartford, Ct.

Since the earliest publications, there is still no definative proof of t he pedigree of Leonard Dix of Wethersfield, CT. All I can say with any cer tainty is:
He is not the son of Edward Dix of Watertown, as Edward's children's birt hs /baptisms are on record.
The Deborah Dix of Watertown is not his mother.
He married Sarah.
Ultimately lived in Weathersfield, CT where he later died.

[NI4214] Died young...

[NI4367] Better luck next try. The Sauteuse name was Marie, married in a country we dding before July 1768. Her first child was born in April 1769. Pontiac al so was murdered in April of 1769 at Kahokia Downs in Illinois. She had on ly 8 children. She died in Feb 1783 3 months after bearing her last (8t h) child. There is proof as I have photostats from 35 mil tape of her bapt ism in 1782 and death record in 1783.
Mannon was bought as a "Panisse" slave for 80 bushels of wheat in the fa ll of 1775. That makes her a PAWNEE. The confusion rests in the fact th at Mannon was acquired as a household slave when the oldest child was bare ly 6 years old. By indian tribal custom, the women share responsibility f or the children. When Marie died, Mannon just kept on raising the childre n. Because of their ages they completely forgot Marie and accepted Mann on as the mother. The confusion of the number of indian children arises be cause it is believed that Mannon possibly also had children from another s lave Jean-Baptiste also owned by Antoine. Jean died at the age of 46 in 17 93, having been raised from birth as as slave by Pierre and passed on to A ntoine in later life.

Baptized in All Saints Church at Settrington, East Riding, (now North York shire) England 1587-02-20 Settrington, Yorkshire, England (1586 old-styl e)

He came over from England on the ship Mary & John, which sailed from Plymo uth, England on 1630-03-20, just a few days ahead of the Winthrop Fle et of 1630. They landed ten weeks later at Dorchester, Massachusetts. Abo ut 1635 he moved to Windsor, Connecticut, which is at the confluence of t he Farmington and Connecticut Rivers. Windsor is about six miles nor th of where the city of Hartford stands today.

He brought to the colonies with him three sons, James, John and Samue l. A daughter Mary, another son James, and his first wife, are assum ed to have died before Bygod left England and little else is known about t hem.

He married again, Mary, and again, her surname is unknown. Together they h ad seven children; Thomas, Mercy (Marcy), Sarah, Rebecca (Deborah), Abigai l, Joseph and Benjamin. Bygod was fined 20 shillings in 1645 for "bequeath ing his wife to a young man." The young man, a George Tuckye, was fin ed 40 shillings, but he took off and didn't pay.

Bygod survived his second wife as well, and married for a third and fin al time. Once again, her name is unknown. No known children came of this m arriage.

Much uncertainty about his mother. Could be Margaret Harker

[NI4979] Research
He resided at Weymouth from 1635 to 1644. We know he was the brother of
Samuel, and the two occupied the same lot, and probably the same house.
He was propounded a freeman in Plymouth Colony 4 May 1652, again in 8
Jun 1655, and yet again 6 Jun 1660.

He was a Constable of Rehoboth in 1660. He was one of 5 to have charge
of admitting inhabitants into Wannamoisett (Swansea) 5 mar 1667-68. He
removed to Swansea and died at Bristol, RI, shortly before 1 Sep 1708.

Sampson Mason of Rehoboth called John Butterworth his brother on 22 Aug
1672, and Plymouth Court deputed Mary Masons brother Butterworth to
assist her in settling her husbands estate 1 Nov 1676. The First Baptist
Church of Swansea was organized at his house in 1663.

In 1670 and 1677 John was surveyor of highways for Rehoboth. 16 Mar 1677
he and others of Swansea were to distribute relief, which had been
collected in Ireland, to sufferers from the Indian War. 1

In Sept 1708 the inventory of his estate amounted to 121 pounds, 19s,
2d, as reported by his administrators, his sons John and Joseph. On 2
Apr 1711 the division of his estate was made to his children:

to eldest son, John Butterworth, two shares..., the others named were
son Joseph, son Benjamins heirs, daughter Sarah Haywards heirs, Deborah
Jenkins heirs, Mercy Blood, Hopestill Eddy, wife of John, Mary Thayer,
wife of Samuel.

The reference to John wife's in his will as, "Mrs. Butterworth for her
part of her dower," and the names of daughters who were born later to
Deacon John, hints of a marriage that occurred later in his life. I
suspect he married again, perhaps in Bristol.

John was a cousin to Samuel Butterworth who was a proprietor at Weymouth
before 1651. Samuel was taxed at Rehoboth in 1643 and a proprietor
there in 1645. In his will dated Oct. 13, 1684, probated March 3, 1685,
he mentions his cousins: Abraham Butterworth of Rhode Island and his
daughter Ann, John Butterworth of Swansey and his 2 sons Samuel and
Benjamin Butterworth; Mary Mason, widow of Samuel and her sons Samuel
and Noah and Samuel Mason and William Hayward of Swansey. Source: The
Pioneers of Massachusetts, Charles H. Pope, Genealogical Publishing Co,

[NI4999] Research
We know John lived in Weymouth in 1635 for about ten years in a house he
shared with his brother Samuel. Around 1645 he removed to Rehoboth with
his sister Mary.

While it has been difficult to place the family groups together with
certainty in the absence of wills, it seems almost certain that John and
Mary are his children. Sarah and Elizabeth have been harder to place, so
theyre listed here on the basis of a best guess.
In correspondence with Mrs Pauline Graham, whose line goes back to Sarah
and Hezikiah, she confirms that Sarahs parents were John and Mary
Butterworth, but no references were provided as proof.

[NI5025] Research
The LDS files list Edward Butterworth, born ca 1556 in Rochdale,
Lancashire, England, and his wife Elizabeth as the parents of the four
Butterworths found in Weymouth in 1635- Henry, John, Samuel, and Mary.
There appears to be no evidence for that connection.

The earliest mention of a Butterworth immigrant seems to be Stephen
Butterworth, ...A list of the members of a congregation (John Robinson,
Minister) #36 Stephen Butterworth. Evidentialy these people were among
those who came to America on the first four ships. 2

Nothing further has been discovered about Stephen Butterworth. This
does, however, establish the family among the original band of Pilgrims.

What we know for sure is that in 1635 in Weymouth we have Samuel, John,
and Mary, who are siblings, and Henry, who very much appears to be their
brother.

From there we have lots of unsubstantiated theories about the family
groups and relationships, and all sorts of dates appearing the the LDS
files and Gen web databases.

We know we have a Widow Butterworth that received a land grant in 1651
in Weymouth. What we do not know is whether she was the widow of Henry,
or of John.

There is a tradition in some branches of the family that the
Butterworths came to New England on a ship called the Staghorn.
