     John R. Ross, a retired agriculturist, who has tilled the soil of one

farm for sixty years, and who retired from his three-score years of farm labor

in 1900, is a native of Pymatuning twp., born near Sharpsville, PA, 24 jan

1839, a son of john and Elizabeth (Barr) Ross, both natives of Westmoreland

Co., PA.  The father was born in 1798 and died in 1852, while the mother was

born in 1800, survived until 1877.  They were united in marriage in

Westmoreland Co. and had three children:  Eliza, John R., of this memoir, and

Sarah C., wife of John W. Snodgrass, residing near Jamestown, [Mercer Co.]
     The grandfather of John R. Ross was John Randall Ross, a native of the

North of Ireland, but of Scotch and Irish parentage.  When a young mane, he

emigrated from Ireland to this country, married here and reared a family of

five sons and two daughters, the father of John R. being the second child in

order of their birth.  He could have easily purchased a farm on land upon

which the city of Pittsburg now stands, but he desired to raise grain on

higher lands, so he settled near West Newton, Westmoreland Co., PA.  He

among the pioneers of that section of Pennsylvania.  Under his farm was

discovered a 12-foot vein of coal.
     John Ross, the father, reached manhoon on the old homestead.  Soon after

his marriage he wended his way to Mercer county, and located near

in Pymatuning twp., where he lived a number of years, then purchased a farm

near Sharpsville, known today as "Shadyside Farm," where he spent his last

years, dying at the age of fifty-five years.  He never cared to hold public

office, but was an ardent defender of the principles of the democratic party,

while in church faith he was of the old Seceders' church of the Presbyterian

     His son, John R. Ross, spent his youthful days working on the old

homestead during the summer months and attending school winters, having to

walk more than two miles to the school house, which was anything but a

of our modern-day school buildings.  He has remained on one farm more than

three score years, doing general farming.  Politically, he is a supporter of

the Republican party, and in church connection is of the United Presbyterian

     During the dark days of the great Civil war, Mr. Ross enlisted in Co. D,

211 PA Regt. Vols., the dat of enlistment being 2 Sep 1864.  He served one

year and was honorably discharged 2 Jun 1865, at Alexandria, VA.  He

participated in all the skirmishes and battles which his regiment was engaged

in, including Fort Steadman, and was in front of Petersburg during the great

siege of that place.
     Mr. Ross was married 16 Jul 1872 to Eleanor B. Snodgrass, born in

Co., PA, 17 Jun 1837, and who died 14 Sep 1896 at the age of 59 years.  She

was the daughter of John Snodgrass and wife.  The father was born in the

of Ireland of Scotch and Irish parentage, and came to American when a young

man, becoming one of the hardy pioneers of Crawford Co., PA.  He was
          among the

early settlers who were compelled to cut away the dense forests, in order to

clear up land for cultivation.  At that date all was an untamed wilderness,

infested with Indian bands and wild beasts, far from companionable to the

human hand.  Here he reared a large family, having three boys and eight girls

around his fireside.  He was a Seceder in church faith, and politically he

supported the old line Whig party.
     To Mr. and Mrs. Ross was born one son and one daughter:  Preston C., an

electrician, and Lida Belle, a teacher in the Sharpsville public schools.

     Samuel C. Wilt is the proprietor of the widely known "Glendale Farm,"

situated in Sugar Grove twp., this county, near the line of the old Erie

canal.  He is not only widely known as a farmer but his reputation  has

extended over much of western Pennsylvania from the fact that for 21 years he

operated a portable saw mill.  It was the first mill of its kind in this

section of the state and during the period mentioned Mr. Wilt succeeded in

cuttiing over two million feet of lumber.  In these days it is almost

impossible to estimate the extent of his usefulness to the pioneers of

Pennsylvania in the conduct of the enterprise mentioned.
     Mr. Wilt is a native of Venango Co., PA, born 17 Oct 1836, son of George

and Mary (Wiker) Wilt.  The father is a native of Center Co., PA, born 12 Oct

1800, and in 1833 came to Venango county and continued to engage in

until lhis death, which occurred at the home of his son, Samuel C., of this

sketch.  His wife, who is also deceased, was born in 1799, daughter of John

Wiker, who was long engaged in farming near Franklin, PA.  There were five

children born to Mr. and Mrs. George Wilt, of whom Samuel C. is the only

now living, his deceased brother and sisters being:  Jacob, Mary, Joannah, and

     Samuel C. Wilt received his education in the district schools of Venango

Co., for which privileges his parents paid one dollar per term, accordiing to

the rates then prevailing in the old time subscription establishments.  After

leaving school he gave his entire time to the assistance of his parents on the

farm and remained with them until he was thirty-three years of age, when he

came to Sugar Grove twp. and located on the tract of land which he now

occupies.  It was then partially cleared and he has since not only prepared

the land for cultivation but made the improvements which have fashioned it

into a desirable piece of country property.  In 1883 Mr. Wilt purchased a

threshing machine, which by his mechanical ingenuity was transformed into a

portable saw mill.  this he moved from place to place, and the business proved

so profitable that he continued in it for 21 years.  He then returned to

farming and has since devoted himself to the development of his property,

which is widely known as the "Glendale Farm."  It contains an interesting

memorial of the old Erie canal in the well-defined two-path, which still may

be traced over its surface.  Mr. and Mrs. Wilt are members of the Methodist

church.  He is a faithful Democratic voter, but has never desired prominence

in any walk of life, being content to do his duty modestly and without hope of

present reward.
     On 24 Sep 1863 Mr. Wilt was married at Franklin, PA, to Miss Elizabeth

Chrispen, daughter of William and Sarah (McLean) Chrispen.  Her father, well

known as a substantial farmer of Pennsylvania, died in 1890 at the age of 71

years.  His wife survived him until 1903, when she passed away, aged 84

Four children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Samuel C. Wilt.  Their eldest was

William Edward, born in 1865 and who is engaged in farming on a place

adjoining the old homestead.  He married Miss Margaret Snodgrass, daughter

John and Sarah (Kline) Snodgrass, well known residents of Crawford Co.,

Their children are:  John and Virgil, aged respectively 16 and 14, and Eva and

Florence, 6 and 5 years of age.  John, the second son of Samuel C. Wilt, is

deceased, and Ralph, the third, is living at home with his parents.  Frank

Leslie Wilt, the youngest of the family, married Miss Elizabeth Wilson and is

also living on a farm adjoining the old family homestead.  mr. and Mrs. Frank

L. Wilt have become the parents of two children--Clayton Leon, Randall E.

Besides Mrs. Samuel C. Wilt there were ten children in her family, as follows:

George Chrispen, a farmer now residing at Oil City, PA; Manuel, a farmer

residing at Franklin, PA; Osborn, living at Oil Field, OH; Sarah, now Mrs. J.

Whitner, whose husband is a farmer of Franklin; George, who was a soldieer

the Civil war; and David, Phoebe, Permilla, Ann, and William, all of whom are

also deceased.

     Ervin E. Reed is well known in the business circles of Greenville as a           
member of the house of Hecker and Reed, dealers in flour and feed.  He is
numbered among the Spanish-American war soldiers, having enlisted on 10

1898, in Co. K, 15th Regt. of PA Vol. Inf.  He was called out on 27 Apr

for he had first enlisted in 1895, and served with the PA National Guard.  He

served as the corporal of his company, and received an honorable discharge on

17 Nov 1898.  He is now a member of Thomas Evans Camp No. 12, Spanish

Veterans, and also has membership relations with Custer Lodge No. 469,

of Pythias, and Alhambra Lodge Nor. 293 I.O.O.F.  Mr. Reed traces his

to Ireland and Scotland.  His grandfather, Michael Reed, was born in 1806 in

Lawrence Co., PA, and from there came to Mercer Co. and worked at his
          trade of

cabinet-making.  He was also numbered among the pioneer agriculturists of

this county.
     John Mathew Reed, the seventh of the ten children born to Michael Reed,

claimed Mercer county as the place of his nativity, as he was born here on 20

Feb 1843, and he died on  26 Dec 1907, one of the highly esteemed citizens

business men of this community.  He attained to mature years on the

farm in Mercer Co., but sometime in the '60s he drifted westward to Indiana,

Illinois, and Iowa, where he worked at his trade of marble-cutting until he

returned to his old home here.  Resuming his trade of marble-cutting, he

worked at that and at stone-cutting until he returned to the farm in 1888, and

from that time until his death he followed the tilling of the soil for a

livelihood.  He served his town of West Salem well and faithfully for a number

of years as a school director, and at the time of his death was the incumbent

in the office of supervisor.  His politics were Democratic, and he was a

stanch and true member of the United Presbyterian church.  In his early

manhood he married Mary E. Snodgrass, born in Greene Twp., her natal day

8 Jun 1851, and she is now living on the old homestead farm in West Salem

twp.  Alexander Snodgrass, her father, was a farmer, and he spent his days in

Pennsylvania, a true and faithful member of the United Presbyterian church,

and a Democrat in his political affiliations.  He was of Irish parentage.

John Mathew Reed and Mary E. Snodgrass were married in Greene twp., and

union was blessed by the birth of nine children, namely:  Elsworth, who died

at the age of 29 years; Alpheus, who died at the age of 19 years; Harry A.,

Milton A., Ervin E., Jennie E., Elsie L., Frederick P., and Lulu B.
     Ervin E. Reed was born in Hempfield Twp., Mercer Co., 28 Aug 1877,

remaining at home with his parents until sixteen years of age, he then became

a clerk in a gro  He next became associated with the Bessemer & Lake Erie

Railroad Company, but some time afterward resumed his grocery clerkship,

in the fall of 1905 he became associated with J. S. Hecker in the flour and

feed business in Greenville.
     On 26 Aug 1903, Mr. Reed was united in marriage with Clara M. Bortz,

was born in this city on 19 Jan 1879, a daughter of Tilgman and Sarah

(Beckman) Bortz, both of whom were born in Mercer Co.  Tilgman Bortz was

in the twp. of West Salem, and he learned and followed the trade of

shoemaking, the larger part of his life having been spent in Greenville.  He

was a member in good standing of the Lutheran church, and was identified

politically with the Republican party.  He had been twice married, and by his

first union he had two children, but both died in infancy.  mrs. Bortz, of

German parentage, survives her husband, and she is the mother ot two

     Lewis S. Yeager, who is a substantial farmer of Perry twp., conducting

both a farm and a dairy on one of the old picturesque homesteads of Mercer

county, was born on the farm which he now occupies on 21 May 1870.  His

grandparents and father were all born in Prussia, the former being Peter and

Mary C. (Wadenphul) Yeager, who landed in New York City from the
          fatherland on

26 Oct 1840.  The mother of the family died just before landing, and on 12

of the same year the father brought the children to Pittsburg, where he was a

truck farmer of Chartier township until his death.  He reared nine children,

of whom Peter, the father of Lewis S., was the second in order of birth.

Peter Yeager, Sr., was a veteran of the German army, with which he was

connected for nine years, serving as an officer in the war of 1812.  Peter

Yeager was reared a farmer, and on 7 Mar 1848, married Mary, daughter of

F. Smith, of Woods Run, Allegheny Co., and five years afterward located on

homestead in Perry twp., which was the birthplace of most of their eleven

children.  The mother, born 10 Jun 1832, is living with her son, of this

sketch.  Her father, a native of Germany, died in 1880, aged 75, and her

mother, Mary Magdalena Ochner, passed away at the age of 62 years.  she

the daughter of Geroge Ochner, a native and lifelong resident of Germany. 

wife was burned to death.  The house in which she lived caught fire and she,

rushing to to get her babe, was overcome, and both she and her child perished

in the flames.  Mr. and Mrs. Smith came to America about 1844 and settled

near Pittsburg, and from there moved to Greenville on the old Jamestown

in 1853, which made them among the pioneers of that section.  Besides Mrs.

Yeager, there are two members of the family living-- George Smith, a farmer

Jamestown, Mercer County, PA
The first Snodgrass reunion was held Saturday at Sunset Grove when 
descendants of John Snodgrass, who came to Jamestown in 1817, from
Ireland, met for their first reunion. The homestead at Jamestown 
is now owned by a grandson, Alexander Snodgrass.  A delightful 
dinner was served with places for 60 relatives and friends. A short
program in charge of Stanley Rodgers was enjoyed. An interesting 
address was given by Rev. J. D. Gibson. Mrs. John Jaradet gave a 
clever reading. Short recitations were given by several of 
the children.

The following officers were elected: President, William S. 
Snodgrass; vice president, Anna Lutton; secretary, Mrs. James 
Rodgers; treasurer, John Snodgrass; chairman of the table 
committee, Mrs. Fred Loutzenhiser; entertainment committee, 
Edythe Snodgrass and Helen Lutton.

The remainder of the day was enjoyed by visiting and playing
games. It was decided that the next reunion will be held at 
Sunset Grove, August 28, 1930.

     I certify that I have this day searched the indexes to the marriage

records filed in the Division of Vital Statistics, Bureau of Health, of the

City and County of Philadelphia, Pa., from 1870 to 1877, and during that

period I find no record of marriage under the name of Alpheus S. Snodgrass,

Harry G. Carlton, Henry G. Carlton, or similar names.  This search made for

the reason that it is suggested that the soldier had a marriage prior to his

enlisted which might have influenced him in changing his name.

Case of Elizabeth C. Carlton, #15648.
     On this 15 day of September, 1922, at Philadelphia, county of

Philadelphia, State of Pennsylvania, before me, Frank J. Bain, a Special

Examiner of the Bureau of Pensions, personally appeared Elizabeth C.

     I am 53 years of age.  My postoffice address is 1112 South Twenty-ninth

Street, Philadelphia, Pa.  Occupation, housekeeping.  I live here with my

children, Arthur, Charlotta, and Albert Carlton.
     My full and correct name Elizabeth Canon Carlton.  I am generally called

"Lizzie" by my friends.  My maiden name Elizabeth Canon.  My parents were

James Canon and Catherine Canon, nee Jackson.  My father died when I was

two years old.  My mother remarried a man named William Dorff when I was

three years old.  I was reared by my step-father Mr. Dorff and I always went

by the name of Dorff prior to my marriage.  I was the only child of my

parents.  My mother had no children by Mr. Dorff.  Both my mother and

step-father have been dead for many years.  I was born in Philadelphia, Pa.,

and have lived in this city all my life.  My parents had no brothers or

sisters to my knowledge and so far as I know I have no relatives living

outside of my own children.
     I had no child or grandchild, or other relative in the U.S. Military or

naval service during the late World War and I performed no such service

myself.  I am not a beneficiary or applicant for compensation under the

provisions of the War Risk Insurance laws.
     I am not a pensioner and have never received a pension in my life.  I am

an applicant for pension as the widow of Henry G. Carlton, who served in Co.

B, 6 U.S. Infantry, in 1876 and 1877, in Indian Campaigns in the West.  He

served in the Army under the name of Alpheus S. Snodgrass.  My husband
          was an

Indian War pensioner and received his pension under the name of Alpheus S.

Snodgrass.  He died in the U. S. Soldiers Home, Washington, D.C., on

7, 1921.  He was buried in the Soldiers Home Cemetery.  I was present at his

     The soldier's full and correct name was Henry Gray Carlton.  He had the

nickname of "Harry" and that is what I always heard him called.  I never heard

anyone call him Henry, although that is his correct name.  I believe it is a

very general thing to call persons named "Henry" by the name of "Harry". 

soldier was born in Philadelphia, Pa., so far as I know.  I know from his

remarks that he lived in Philadelphia from boyhood.  His parents' names are

unknown to me, except it now comes to my mind that he spoke of his mother

being named "Mary".  From his remarks I judge that his father was harsh with

him and he had very little affection for his father.  I never met either of

his parents.  They had died before I became acquainted with him.  The soldier

had no brothers to my knowledge.  He used to speak affectionately of a sister

Charlotta who was dead and it was for her that our girl child named.  I never

met his sister.  She had died prior to the time I became acquainted with the

soldier.  So far as I know the soldier has no living relatives outside of his

own children.  we both used to remark that neither of us had nay kin, and our

children have commented on the fact that they never had Uncles or Aunts.
     The soldier enlisted in the U.S. Army under the name of Alpheus S.

Snodgrass. He often related to me the circumstances under which he enlisted

that name, and he also repeated it to our friends.  It seems that he had had a

quarrel with his father, with whom he never got along pleasantly, and his

father had beat him up, so he decided to enlist in the army.  He enlisted with

some boy friend, or "buddy", and this friend counseled him to take an assumed

name so that his father could not find <him>.  This he did and he said he took

the name of a deceased cousin, Alpheus S. Snodgrass.  He said that that was

the first name he thought of and he knew the man was dead and that the name

would answer his purposes.  He enlisted in Philadelphia, Pa.  I think he was

discharged at some Fort in the West, Fort Lincoln, Neb., I think it was.  At

least, I have heard him speak of being at Fort Lincoln.  He talked freely of

his service.  He used to speak of the Little Big Horn River.  He told me that

his outfit went to bring in Custer's men after Custer's Massacre.  He was not

in the Custer Fight but was among the men who was sent to relieve Custer. 

spoke of them picking up the dead and bringing back the wounded.  I have

heard him mention the names of his officers but I can't remember them to save

my life, nor do I know the names of his comrades.  None of his comrades ever

visited him.
     Q.  Was the soldier sick while he was in the army?
     A.  Yes.  He said he had the measles while he was in the army and was

under the doctor's care for about six months.  He used to speak of how well

was fed in the Hospital, and how poorly he was fed when he was well.  He

to say they fed him on chicken while in the Hospital.  I do not know where the

Hospital was located.  I think he was discharged from the service on account

of disability.  He said he was discharged on account of chronic lumbago and

muscular rheumatism.  He used to suffer greatly from rheumatism and always

claimed he contracted it in the army.
     Q.  Describe the personal appearance of your husband?
     A.  He was about 5 feet and eleven inches in height.  He had blue eyes,

fair skin and dark hair, almost black.  His hair turned silver white before

his death.  I think he was about 18 years old when he enlisted.
     Q.  Are you sure he enlisted in Philadelphia?
     A.  I think so.  He lived here before <he> enlisted, but he might have

run away and enlisted somewhere else.
     Q.  Are you sure he was born in Philadelphia?
     A.  I have always understood he was born here.
     Q.  The records show the soldier enlisted in Newport, Ky.  Can you

explain this?
     A.  If that is true, he must have run away from home and enlisted.
     Q.  The records, soldier's own statements, show he was born in West Va.

Explain this?
     A.  I think that was the birthplace of his cousin Alpheus S. Snodgrass,

whose name he assumed.
     Q.  Did the soldier have any permanent marks or scars on his person?
     A.  None that I can remember.
     Q.  Have you a photograph of the soldier?
     A.  Yes.  I have a small snapshot of him taken with another soldier, a

boy in the neighborhood, a World War veteran.  I hand you this for use in my

claim, with the request that it be returned to me when my claim is settled.
     Q.  I now read to you the names William Brinkman, John Duffy and

Vermillion, who were members of the soldier's company.  Are these names

familiar to you?
     A.  No.  I never heard him mention those names so far as I can recall.  I

remember that he used to speak of a German doctor who treated him while he

sick.  He used to joke about this doctor and said they called him Dr.

     I do not have the soldier's original discharge certificate and so far as

I can recollect I never saw it in my life.
     Q.  When did the soldier first apply for pension?
     A.  I don't know.  I used to urge him to apply for pension long before he

did and <he> told me that he had applied through Gen. O'Neill in Philadelphia,

Pa., and that he had died while the matter was being settled and then he could

not find his papers.
     Q.  When did you first learn that your husband enlisted under the name of

Alpheus S. Snodgrass?
     A.  Years ago.  Long, long before he was granted this pension.
     Q.  Did you know he was pensioned under the name of Snodgrass?
     A.  Yes.
     Q.  Did you ever suggest to him that he should have his name straightened

out before the Pension Bureau?
     A.  I never suggested to him, but it worried him and he said to me one

day, "Lizzie, I have done wrong, and just as soon as I get strength I am going

to take you down to Mr. Wray (pension attorney) and right this wrong,

it is an injustice to you and the children."  He never improved after that and

I never bothered him with the matter, tho' he mentioned it several times.  I

was more concerned over his health than I was the prospect of a pension.
     He had worked for nine yars before he became too ill to work for

Harrison's Chemical Works (Now Dupont's Works), 35 and Grays Ferry

would have paid his expenses in the University Hospital, Philadelphia, where

they maintain a couple of beds, and no doubt he would have received good

there, but he insisted on going to the Soldiers Home, D.C., and he had great

faith in the Home.  He was in the Home from Sept. 8, to Oct. 7, 1921, when

died.  I visited him once in the Home and also attended his funeral.  He

always used to say that he wanted to be laid away with his "buddies" meaning

that he wanted a soldier's burial with soldiers.
     Q.  How many times have you been married?
     A.  Only once.  My only marriage was to Henry G. Carlton.  I married him

under the name of Elizabeth Canon Dorf in Philadelphia, Pa., on February 3,

1898, by William H. Robinson, or Robertson, in his house at 45 and Baltimore

Ave.  Rev. Robertson was an Episcopal Minister.
     Q.  How many times was Mr. Carlton married?
     A.  Only once.
     Q.  He had been married before, hadn't he?
     A.  Oh no!  He had never been married before.
     Q.  He was a man well up in years.  How do you know he had never been

married before?
     A.  He was 41 years old when we were married.  I had been acquainted

him since January 1893, and I knew people who had been acquainted with him

long before that.  He was known to everybody as an old bachelor.  If you

him as I knew him you would know he had not been married before.
     Q.  Who knew him from the time he was a young man?
     A.  Mrs. Mattie Noross knew him before he went to the army and

too.  Mrs. Katie Maynes, who lives at the same address, 6633 Elmwood Ave.,

also knew him from the time he was a young man, and they knew me from the

I was a child.  Mrs. Noross knew me from the time I was almost a baby.
     Q.  Were you ever separated from Mr. Carlton or divorced from him?
     A.  N.  We lived together continuously from the day we were married to

the time he went to the Soldiers Home in Washington, which was just a month

before his death.  We were never separated a day after we were married until

that time and we were never divorced.  We had a number of children who died

infancy.  We have four living children namely:
          Arthur V. Carlton, Chicago, Ill., street address unknown, who is 23

years old.
          Charlotta Carlton, age 22, at home with me.
          Albert Carlton, age 20, at home with me.
          George C. Carlton, age 15, at home with me.
     Q.  Have you remarried since the death of the soldier?
     A.  No.  I was living at this address when the soldier died and have

lived here since.
     I have heard read to me a letter written by the soldier to the Pension

Office, dated April 3, 1907, 1515 S. Stillman St., Philadelphia, in which he

mentions that he had been traveling away from home.  This travel must have

taken place before I met him.  He lived in Philadelphia from the time I first

met him.  You have told me that he lived in Baltimore, Md., in 1892, when he

first applied for pension.  He must have been temporarily there because he

worked for the Atlantic Refinery in 1890 and 1891, and 1892 also, I presume.

In 1888 and 1889 he worked in the erection of the House of Correction at

Holmesburg, Pa.  In the time I knew him my husband was a carpenter by
          trade. I

do not know his occupation when he enlisted.  I think he was too young to

had a trade.
     I understand that I have the right to be present in person or by attorney

during the taking of further testimony in my pension claim here and elsewhere.

I do not wish to be present and waive all notice of further examination.  I am

willing for the government to go right ahead and do whatever is thought

     I employed no attorney in the prosecution of my claim and have no

agreement to pay a fee to any person in case my claim is granted.
     I have read the foregoing statement and it is correct.
Elizabeth C. Carlton

     I have one child under the age of sixteen years and that is George C.

Carlton, born in Philadelphia, Pa., on July 25, 1907.  He is living and in my

care and custody.  This has been read and is correct.
