Descendants of Johannes Zeh

 

Generation No. 1 1. JOHANNES1 ZEH was born 16681,2, and died Aft. 1746 in Schoharie, NewYork 3,4. He married ANNA MAGDALENA UNKNOWN 5. She was born 1672, and died 07 Jul 1750 in Schoharie, NewYork 6,7.

 

Notes for JOHANNES ZEH:

 The Zeh family have been traced to Rudelsheim, a village replaced in 1830 by Ludwigshohe, just south of Oppenheim, Germany. The village was destroyed by a flood at that time, then rebuilt and renamed on higher ground. Since Johannes was listed by occupation as a vine dresser, he was probably involved in grape growing and wine making in this location. He and his family were Catholics; and, apparently left, possibly to escape religious persecution in the area. 02 Jun 1709: 3rd list: John Zeg, 43, wife, sons aged 1, 6, 1/2 , note reads "first son should read 11" (I am now doubting this as he would have had to be at least 18 years old, and I feel that the original list should be scrutinized), list of Husbandmen and vine dressers, p.22, London Lists in Public Records Office, London Third List of Palatines taken at St. Catherine's, 02 Jun 1709, 1,745 persons Vol. 2, No. D 68, from Palatine Families of New York by Henry Z. Jones. "Johannes Sech was a Palatine Convert from Popery when he was admitted to the Lord's Supper in the Protestant communion at the Lutheran Church at the Savoy in London shortly after 09 Oct 1709" - from "More Palatine Families" by Henry Z Jones, 1991, p. 410. Johannes is listed in Jones' Palatine Families, p. 1127 as having died on 07 Jul 1750, the same year and age which is listed for his wife, Magdalena. Could this be an error or coincidence? I am taking it as an error because the exact same date is listed in the Records of St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church (Vosburgh's Transcript) as the date and age of death for Magdalena Zeh. Until something new comes to light, I will leave it this way. According to Vosburgh's Transcript, St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church Records, Schoharie Congregation, Register of the Schoharie Congregation, 1746., Johannes Zahe, Magdalena Zahe and ch. Adam and Christian appear there as members. This is the last known mention of Johannes in the church records.

 

There is mention of a Johannes Zeh having moved to Beaver Dam, settling next to the Warner family, between what are now the hamlets of Berne and East Berne in 1765. Here the Zeh and Warner families operated a saw mill as evidenced by a 1787 land survey of lands belonging to Stephen Van Rensselaer III done by William Cockburn. The purpose was to force leases on the squatters who had been living there rent free, some of them for almost half a century. Survey notes for Lot 564 say: "This is a Middling good Lot, Well Watered by the foxen Kill on which is a fine Sawmill, with a gang of Saws. The Werners & Sees are the Chief proprietors of it. Chiefly Pine & Oak Timber." This sawmill was on the bank of the Foxenkill, on the western edge of the 71 acre Lot 564; and lot 565 was farmed by Christian See. The Zeh and Warner families burying ground, with the earliest known burial in 1777 was located on the eastern part of the sawmill lot. The Zehs and Warners were instrumental in the 1790 incorporation of what became the Zion Lutheran Church in Beaver Dam. July 1797, the church leased Lot 564 where the sawmill and burying ground were located. Using planks sawed at the mill, a frame church was constructed near the burying ground, now known as the Lutheran Church Cemetery (Old Pine Grove Cemetery). Source of the above information: http://www. albanyhilltowns.com/ It is almost certain that the Johannes mentioned above is the son of Johannes, not the father.

 

Notes for ANNA MAGDALENA UNKNOWN:

There is a story which appears out of the mists of time regarding Magdalena Zeh. This story has been reported in several books, some of which are: The Appalachian Frontier by John Anthony Caruso published by the University of Tennessee Press in Knoxville, Tennessee, 2003, page 28; The Old New York Frontier by Francis Whitney Halsey published by C. Scribner's Sons, 1901, page 36; and History of Schoharie County and Border Wars of New York by Jeptha R. Simms published by Munsell & Tanner, Printers,Albany, 1845, pages 69-71. Some thought of the hardships endured by not only Johannes and Magdalena Zeh and their children; but, in truth, the rest of the German Immigrants who had been sent to New York by the English Crown, is needed in preamble of this story.

The Zehs were Catholics who were attempting to avoid religious persecution in their own homeland. They had already been to England, where they and many others were put up in tents during the cold winter there. Queen Anne had given them clothing, blankets, food, and even some money; but, all this was resented by the poor English people who looked on with envy. They had been attacked by these same poor native English peoples; and, the Crown thought it best to try and resettle them elsewhere. This was not an easy task. No one wanted them because they were without any means of support. Finally it was agreed to send them to New York, in America, where the Crown could use them to make pitch and tar for their naval vessels; and, thereby, keep them afloat. There were many pine trees in America from which to make pitch and tar. They finally concluded to resettle the Germans on land which had formerly been the property of a man named Bayard, granted to him in a rather large grant in Schoharie, New York. The land had been taken back from him as he had neglected to make the necessary improvements upon it.

When the immigrants arrived in 1710, not only did they have to build log huts in which to live; but, plant crops for food, and make everything they needed in order to survive. Before they even left, the Zehs were required to become Protestants because the Crown would not settle Catholics on the land or pay their passage to America. It they had refused to become Protestant, they would have been sent back to Germany. While living on the land, they were to make pitch and tar in addition to everything else they had to do. They understood that the land was to be given to them after a period of time. However, this did not take place. Some time later, around 1715, Mr. Bayard was deputized by the English Crown to give titles or deeds for the land to the Germans. However, when he went to visit them, he was virtually run out of town. He hid in a house while a mob of Germans waited outside asking for him to be turned over to them. His side of the story was that he was only trying to give them deeds to the land; but, in view of the intensity of further events, I believe he was probably trying to either get money out of them or find a way to get his land back again. He managed to escape the house and make his way to Albany where he told his side of the story.

Albany supposedly sent a Sheriff Adams to Schoharie to arrest the miscreants. At this time, the people were being told that they would either have to buy the land, pay rent, or leave. During the time elapsing between the hasty retreat of Mr. Bayard and the deputizing of Mr. Adams (who probably was deputized specifically for this occasion as there is no mention of him being a Sheriff anywhere in Albany), the Governor of New York had decided to sell the land to Mr. Bayard and six other partners. This created a group thereafter referred to as the "Seven Partners".

When Sheriff Adams arrived in Schoharie, the Germans were having none of it. Magdalena was considered to be the ringleader and self appointed captain of the mob, consisting solely of women, which beat Sheriff Adams and literally ran him out of town on a rail. They pranced him through the small German settlements for the 6 - 7 miles to the bridge on the road to Albany. Here, Magdalena grabbed a fence stake and beat the Sheriff about his body hard enough to break a couple of ribs, and put out one of his eyes. Some accounts say that she then urinated in his face and left him laying in the road.

I have searched the court records of Albany to see if I could find some documented evidence of the outcome of this incident. Some further references to this incident say that some of the miscreants were arrested; but, the court records in the minute books are missing between the years 1702 and 1717. This leaves out the time period in question. Surely, this momentous incident had a bearing on some of the immigrants moving to Pennsylvania.

The immigrants sent emissaries to the British Crown in London; but they were robbed on the trip, and arrived in debt, for which they were locked up in the Tower of London for about a year. They stayed on, trying to plead their case to the Crown; but, Queen Anne had died in the meantime, and the news of how Bayard and Adams were treated had reached London. Upon their return to New York, five years later, they told the immigrants about land that was available to them in Pennsylvania. They advised them to either buy their land, pay rent, or move to Pennsylvania.

Son, Johann George Zeh, seems to be the only one of the Zeh family to move to Tulpehocken Creek in Pennsylvania. The rest stayed behind in New York and either payed rent or bought land in the area; raised families; and, lived out the rest of their lives there.

Notes for JOHANN GERHARDT ZEH:

Since his mother and father, Johannes and Magdalena, were shown on the New York Governor's Subsistence List of 1710 as having no children under the age of 10 years, Johann Gerhardt must have died before 1710. However, it is not known exactly where he died.

Notes for IGNATIUS ZEH:

Since his mother and father, Johannes and Magdalena, were shown on the New York Governor's Subsistence List of 1710 as having no children under the age of 10 years, Ignatius must have died before 1710. However, it seems that he must have died in Germany, as they were listed in London with a total of 3 children in 1709 and the ages of the other sons match Johann Gerhardt, Johann George, and Johann Peter.

Notes for JOHANN GEORGE ZEH (SEE):

Johann George Zeh was confirmed at New German Colony (West Camp Lutheran Churchbook, a List of First Communicants pp. 81-86) on 30 Apr 1711. However, I do not believe that he could have been the usual age for confirmation of about 12 years or even the usual age of first communion at 7 years. This would calculate his date of birth to be about 1699-1703, as would the Third List of Palatines in London in the year 1709. This cannot be because one of his oldest children, Frederick See, was born about 1712 in New York. This would make him 14 years old at Frederick's birth. It is a well known fact that the churches of the time did not sanction marriages of boys this young. Usually a male would be at least 21 years old and be able to prove that he could support a family. Therefore, I am estimating his date of birth to be at least 21 years before the birth of Frederick; and, his wife to be about the same age. Consideration of the fact that the family entered the protestant faith from the Catholic faith, leads one to believe that he could have been much older at first communion or confirmation. He appears on the list of Names of Male Palatines, Above Twenty-one Years Old in Livingston Manor, New York in the Winter 1710 and Summer 1711, which would support a year of birth of about 1689. In addition, more research is needed to ascertain whether or not the marriage date of 1709 in Switzerland, mentioned in A Chronicle of the See Family by Irene See Brasel is correct.

The further I go with this, the more I am doubting exactly what the maiden name of Mary Margaret was. I am starting to get that old feeling of trying to put a square peg in a round hole; and, this usually means that something does not add up. Hence, more research is on the menu.

I found something on the CD of St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church of West Camp, New York Records which I think is significant for showing that George WAS older. I first found it in the transcription section, at the end of the book. It appears there on page 8 (it is a transcription of the Kocherthal Records page 18). ....but, it is page 110 of the page counter at the top of the CD page (confusing). It represents the line above the Baptism of Johan Adam Zech which took place on 29 Sep 1710. We first must agree that the subsistence lists of 1710 show that Johannes and Magdalena were 3-0 and in 1712 they were 3-1 (meaning no child under 10 in 1710 and one child under 10 in 1712). This had to mean that Johann Peter, Johann Gerhardt, and Ignatius all died before that day in 1710, therefore there could only be one Johann Zech, that one being Johann George Zech, since his father had no middle name and was known because of this as "Johannes". This is according to German naming patterns of the time. Only those Johns who had no middle name were known as Johannes. Those who were named Johann, with a middle name, were known after the day of their Baptism/Christening by the middle name because the first name was actually a Christening name and the name of a favorite Saint. This pattern was in operation in Johannes & Magdalena's children that were born in Germany because they were Catholic at that time. They became Protestant in England so that they would be allowed to come to America. The line above Johann Adam Zech's Baptism reads: Baptism date: 24 Sep 1710 Child: Maria Sophia Parents: Gerhard Schafer & Anna Maria Sponsors: Johann Zech, Maria Apollonia Wustin (two dots above the u), and Anna Sophia Koppin I went back and checked this on the image of the original and it clearly is what it says in the transcription. I am sure that there is no way an 11-12 year old is going to be a sponsor in a baptism. He surely must be of age on this day.

Rupp's 30,000 Immigrants list George Zeh among 33 German Palatinate families arriving in New York in 1710, spending 1710-1711 winter and summer in Livingston Manor, Sullivan County, New York, on page 448; then moving in 1713 to Schoharie County, New York. He is also listed on page 465 among the "Names of Early Settlers in Tulpehocken, Berks, and Lebabon Counties", where as early as 1723, thirty-three families of Germans who had come to New York in 1710, settled in Schoharie in 1713, then many moved to Tulpehocken Creek in Chester County, Pennsylvania, where George joined them in 1728 and was a member of the Lutheran Congregation. He appears on the list of "Names of Early Settlers in Tulpehocken, Berks and Lebanon Counties, as having arrived in 1728 with another group of settlers who came from Schoharie. He also is listed by Mr. C. Lindemuth on his list made from land deeds and land patents which was published in The Pennsylvania German in Lebanon, Pennsylvania in 1904, V, 191. Although the map drawn up by Mr. Lindemuth, locating the patents, was dated by him "1723", it obviously should be of some later date, certainly after 1728, according to Early Palatine Emigration Appendices in FTM CD 267 German and Swiss Settlers in America, 1700s-1800s copyrighted by MyFamily.com, Inc. George may have come to Tulpehocken as early as the fall of 1725, as there is a "Hans Jery Say" on the Tulpehocken Township Tax Assessments, a handwritten list of 36 names. Hans is a shortening of the name Johannes and Jery was used in the lists for other men known to have been named George in other documents. This information was contributed by Sara Patton.

Conrad Weiser, an early Schoharie Palatine Immigrant, in his autobiography, which was not published until 1875, states that the first group who came to Tulpehocken in 1823, comprised of fifteen families, floated down the Susquehanna in dugout canoes, up the Swatara, and then moved on to Tulpehocken, "and drove their cattle over land." George was included with the early settlers of the 1740's to present day Hardy County, Virginia, settling near the present village of Lost River on the stream of Lost River. Since he appears on a list of members of the Tulpehocken Lutheran Church 1743-1746, made by Rev. Tobias Wagner, he probably arrived in western Virginia about this time.

Extracts from the Diary of Leonhard Schnell and John Brandmueller of Their Journey to Virginia, October 12 - December 12, 1749:

"Above the gap, we came to the Germans, where we called on George Zeh (See). Here we appointed a sermon for the next day. When the neighbors heard of our arrival, several came at once and implored us to baptize their children. I turned them off as well as I could. This continued for a long time. In the evening our host asked us: Why do you teach that the Savior accepts all men, and yet you refuse to baptize these children? I told him because these people give their children such a poor training. On November 7th, a woman came very early to us asking for the baptism of her child. In the same way, six others came whom we could not refuse. Brandmueller preached on the words: Behold the Lamb of God. After the sermon, a general request was made for baptism. Hence, I baptized two girls and a little boy. In the afternoon we went back part of the way to Mr. Joachim, where we had appointed a sermon. George Zeh took us twice through the river on horses."

Estate of George See may be found including administration by Frederick Sea of 27 Aug 1751, with inventory listed on 27 Aug 1752 in Augusta County Will Book 1, 1745-1753, Reel 41, Pages 375-377, at Virginia State Library at Richmond, Virginia.

The origination of the name Johannes "Ludwig" See may have come from the following source which was listed in A Chronicle of the See Family and their Kindred by Irene See Brasel: "Philadelphia was the point of entry and its docks and wharves were scenes of activity as the vessels made return trips with regularity. Passenger lists named the heads of families and boys under sixteen years of age; females were unlisted. The immigrant was required to sign an oath of loyalty to the government upon his entry. The original lists of the names of these Swiss, German and other immigrants were on file in the Secretary’s office in Harrisburg and published in 1857 by Prof. Daniel Rupp in an edition called A Collection of Thirty Thousand Names, etc. In list 32, September l8, 1733, was Palatines, the Brigantine, Pennsylvania, Merchant of London, John Stedman Master, from Rotterdam last from Plymouth. Passengers were 71 males above 16; 56 females, 37 males under 16, 64 males and females under 16 - in all 191. The name of John Ludwig See appears." Actually, the name "John Ludwig Sees" is listed on page 90 of "A collection of Upwards of Thirty Thousand Names of German, Swiss, Dutch, French and other Immigrants in Pennsylvania From 1727 to 1776" by Prof. Israel Daniel Rupp, Leary Stuart & Co., Philadelphia, Pa, 1898 by Edwin S. Stuart, which is the same book referenced previously for George having entered the country. So, it seems quite possible that Johannes George See and Johannes Ludwig See were two different individuals who have been spliced together by some researchers into one person named "Johannes George Ludwig See/Zeh".

 

LAND HOLDINGS:

360 acres surveyed on 01 May 1751 in Augusta County, Virginia. Parts of Augusta later became Greenbrier County, Virginia.

Notes for MARGRET UNKNOWN:

One of the earliest wills on record is also that of Margaret See, the widow of George See, dated 28 Mar 1757 in Hampshire County, Virginia. Margaret names three sons in her will: Frederick, George, and Michael. She also names two grandsons Felty and Jacob Yokeham. In addition to these she names Mading, Barbara N., Mary, and Jacob See. Many researchers have presented that Margaret See was Mary Margaret Tschudi when she married Johannes George Zeh. I have not been able to find any support at all for this idea.

Notes for JOHANNES ZEH:

When Johannes and Catharina were married, they both were living in Huntersfield, according to their marriage record in the Schoharie Reformed Church Records transcribed by Royden W. Vosburgh. Johannes, Catharina, and their children moved to an area called Beaver Dam near what later became Berne, Albany County, New York about 1765. Here they operated a sawmill with the Werner family. Both families settled on farms surrounding the mill site. The location of these tracts of land may be seen on a survey map drawn up by William Cockburn for Stephen Van Rensselaer III in 1787. Many squatters, including the Zeh and Werner families had been living on Van Rensselaer's land for decades without paying rent; and he wanted to force leases upon them. The map shows, in the area that now includes Berne and Knox, about 90 irregularly shaped lots. This is evidence that they had settled prior to the survey because the shape of their lots matched the land actually cleared and settled. Other land was surveyed into lots of 160 square acres each. The names of Johannes and Catherine's sons, Henrich and Christian, may be seen on the 1787 survey map, occupying lots 584 and 565, respectively. The sawmill was located on lot 564.

According to "First Lutheran Church in What Became the Town of Berne" by Harold Miller, Altamont Enterprise, 01 Aug 2002, Dominie Peter Nicholas Sommer (1709-1795) who provided the earliest known Lutheran ministry in what is now the Town of Berne, preached for the first time in Johannes Zeh's house in February 1765. Here, in Johannes' log cabin, surrounded by towering pines and oak trees, he administered the "Lord's Supper". Beaver Dam was then included in a large area called the Town of Rensselaerville, which included all of the Hilltowns in the Helderberg Plateau in Western Albany County. When this church was incorporated in 1790 as the "German Lutheran Congregation of Rensselaer Ville", the first trustees were Christian Sand, Frederick Warner, and Christian Zeh, a son of Johannes, at whose house Dominie Sommer had administered Communion in 1765. Another article presented on the Berne Historical Project site (http://www.bernehistory.org/) gives the location of the church as having been built near the Zeh and Warner homesteads, halfway between what are now the villages of Berne and East Berne, just east of the present day Pine Park residential area, the site of the old Pine Grove Cemetery.

Notes for CONRAD YOKUM:

After the massacre at Muddy Creek on 15 Jul 1763, the Indians under Chief Cornstalk proceeded to the Big Levels, and on the next day, they performed the atrocious acts of the previous day. Every white man in the settlement except Conrad Yoakum was killed, and every woman but Mrs. Clendenin. Conrad Yoakum, being some distance from the house, alarmed by the outcries of the women, took in the situation and fled to Jackson's River, telling the story. The people there were unwilling to believe him until convinced by the approach of the Indians. All fled before them, and they went on to Carr's Creek in Rockbridge, where many families were also murdered and others captured (History of Augusta County Virginia, pg. 138).

She was born 30 Jul 1725, and died Abt. 1806 in Tuscarawas County, Ohio 204,205,206. He married (2) MARIA OTTILIA STEMPEL 207,208 22 May 1744 in Swatara, Tulpekhocken, Pennsylvania 209,210.

Notes for JOHANN FREDERICK SEE:

Regarding the birth date and birth place of Frederick See (Zeh), no direct evidence has ever been found as to what year he was born or the locality of his birth. Based upon certain circumstances, such as the year of his first marriage to Maria Stempel of 1744, his father reported on a List of Males Above the Age of 21 in Livingston Manor, New York in 1710-1711, and the known child-bearing years of women being 20-30 years duration, his year of birth could be estimated to have occurred between 1710 and 1725. Frederick being born before 1725 would place his birth in Schoharie, New York; and, birth occurring afterwards would have taken place in Tulpehocken, Chester County, Pennsylvania. An effort to uncover any existing records which prove the time and location of his birth is now underway, as of 03 Feb 2012. His name has been reported to be Frederick Michael See (Zeh) by many researchers; but, there is no real evidence for this. There is documentary evidence in the records of Rev. John Casper Stoever, who recorded Frederick's first marriage to Maria Ottilia Stempel in Swatara that his name was "John Frederick Zeh"; and, I am, therefore, accepting that as his true name.

MUDDY CREEK MASSACRE

On Saturday, July 16, 1763, a party of 80 or 90 Shawnees, led by Chief Cornstalk and assisted by the Great War Chief Puksinwah, having crossed over the Ohio River, swept up the Kanawha on a murderous rampage. Simultaneously, they hit the 9 member See Family and the 6 member Felty Yocum Family. Suddenly the Indians appeared at the See cabin, with all the appearance of friendship, grinning and laughing. The Sees welcomed them, and as it was near mealtime they offered to share food with them. The Shawnees agreed, and when the meal was finished, they lounged around for a bit and rested. Suddenly with a whoop the Indians fell upon the whites, killing the father (Frederick) and the son-in-law, scalping them before the eyes of their families. Other men & older boys were also killed. The remaining family was placed under guard and hurried along the back trail to Old Town, Ohio.

LAND HOLDINGS: 480 Acres surveyed on 24 Apr 1751 in Augusta County, Virginia. Parts of Augusta County later became Greenbrier County, Virginia.

Notes for CATHERINE UNKNOWN:

Some researchers believe that Catherine's maiden name was Vanderpool, however, I can find no documentation in support of this.

Catherine See and Children in Indian Captivity:

 After the Muddy Creek Massacre, the destination of the Shawnees was Old Town near the present city of Chilicothe, Ohio, on the banks of the Scioto River. The captives were forced along at the tireless pace of the Indians. They tried valiantly to keep up, for well they knew that it was a matter of life or death; any who weakened and fell behind, any crying babe was ruthlessly killed. The distance ahead was long, a distance of 165 miles as the crow flies, over some of the most rugged terrain east of the Mississippi River. Two mountain ranges lay ahead, the Blue Ridge and the Allegheny, not to mention streams and rivers to cross.

Catherine See, keenly aware that her younger children would soon be exhausted, resolved with a courage born of desperation to save them from an inevitable fate. One of the warriors rode along the trudging line made up of about 150 women, young boys and children, many burdened with the loot that the Indians had collected. His mount was a horse, the property of Frederick See. It was perhaps the third day on the trail that Catherine requested that he give up the horse that her children might ride. This the Indian angrily refused to do. Seizing a pine knot from the ground, Catherine knocked him off the horse. He sprang up brandishing his tomahawk and would have killed her then & there, but for the interference of the other Indians who admired her fearlessness and called her "The Fighting Squaw". Catherine was permitted to keep the horse and use it for her family.

One ceremony which provided the Indians with entertainment was an ordeal to which nearly every prisoner was subjected, it was to run "The Gauntlet". A large number of squaws and boys armed with clubs and switches lined up in two rows facing each other, then the prisoners were compelled to run between the lines while the Indians struck them with their sticks and threw dirt or rubbish in their faces. Catherine was now about 48 years old and had spent the last 25 years of her life on the frontier, where to remain alive was to become physically tough and mentally alert. Doubtlessly, the story of her triumph in getting the horse had spread through the village and the Indians were eager to see the "fighting squaw" undergo this test. They were not to be disappointed, for to their astonishment, Catherine suddenly seized the club of the nearest Indian, and swinging it lustily right and left, soon overcame and scattered the Indians.

In accordance with Indian custom, a general council decided the division of spoils and the fate of the prisoners. The older daughter, Elizabeth, was given to Chief Cornstalk's Son for his wife. This girl could hardly have been more than fourteen. How the older boys were placed is unknown and Catherine and the younger girl were taken into some family. All were under shelter except little John, who had to stay outside with the Indian dogs. Housing was strained by the sudden addition of 150 prisoners.

It so happened that one day when most of the tribe had left for some special purpose, Catherine was left behind in charge of an aged squaw. The old woman was subject to seizures, and having one, fell into the fire. Catherine calmly placed her foot on the old womans head and held it down until she died. When the Indians returned and heard her report of the happening (what she chose to tell) she received no blame as the old woman's condition was generally known. There was one less in the wigwam and John could then sleep inside. Later he was adopted by an Indian family.

Appeals for relief, at length were heard, and the British Government ordered Col. Henry Bouquet to make an expedition against the Indians to put an end to these raids and force the return of their captives. The Indians, impressed by the boldness of Col. Bouquet decided to make peace and give up their white prisoners. On November 9, 1764, the Indians delivered 206 prisoners at the stockade and on the 18th they were taken to Fort Pitt. The Shawnees had about 100 remaining prisoners which they promised to deliver in the Spring. Among the list of prisoners sent by Capt. Lewis to Fort Pitt on November 15th were the following: the two See boys, and Mary See, which could be Mary Catherine See, the mother or the younger sister. The list reveals the physical condition of the children and the fact that some did not know their own names.

When the day had come for the captives departure, scenes of grief and sadness prevailed for many Indians did not wish to give up their adopted children. Only a night or two after leaving, little John See stole away from the encampment and rejoined the Indians. Tradition tells that his Uncle Michael See gave a trader $100.00 to get him back and John See returned to Hampshire to live with his Uncle's family.

Catherine See had her burden of grief for her daughter, Elizabeth, did not return with the captives. Legend tells that she was the mother of an Indian babe and either remained with the Shawnees by choice or by restraint. The See family returned to Hampshire County to live with their kindred. Catherine See may have married John Hardy, pioneer of Hardy County, who returned to Greenbrier, and appears in the county tax list of 1783-1786.

Notes:

I have encountered two trains of thought when it comes to the parentage of Catherine Vanderpool. There is one that says that she was the daughter of Wynant Vanderpool and Catherine de Hooges. I have not found any evidence for this idea. I have acquired a reprint of a book entitled "Van der Poel" which was reprinted by the Higginson Book Company of Salem, Massachusetts; and is a research of the family origins and descendants. This book names the children of Wynant and Catherine; but, there is no daughter named Catherine. The last child was born in 1722 and named Maria. She was the youngest of eight children. While it is true that there may have been more, there is no proof that there was indeed any more.

The second train of thought, presented by Irene See Brasel in her book, "A Chronicle of the See Family and their Kindred", is that Catherine was probably the daughter of Abraham Vanderpool who came to Pennsylvania in 1738 and traveled to Virginia and Western Virginia to the same places which the See Family also traveled. I have found nothing to support this scenario either. There is nothing to even suggest the age of Abraham Vanderpool in the murky records of the time, so that he could just as easily be a brother or a cousin. I note that Wynant and Catherine Vanderpool had a documented son named Abraham born 1709. It follows that if Catherine were truly their daughter, he would then be her brother.

Abraham Vanderpool and wife, Rebecca, sold to George Yokum, lot 10 which was held by patent of Lord Fairfax, South Fork of Warraconee or Great5 South Branch of Potomac, 430 acres, in May of 1751 (Chalkley 3, pg. 293).

I have decided, therefore, to list Catherine as an Unknown, for the time being, without any parents. Until such time as evidence to the contrary should come to light, I will present her in this way. She is buried in the Robinson Family Cemetery in Conesville, Coshocton County, Ohio. Date of death may be 1808 rather than 1806.

Notes for ELIZABETH SEE:

Elizabeth's date of birth and date of death are undocumented. She may have been a twin of Catherine, as some researchers claim; but, there is no documentary evidence of this. Death dates for her from other researchers vary from 1791 to 1834. Locations for her death also vary from Kentucky to Adams County, Ohio. But, apparently, she and her husband, Peter Shoemaker settled in Coshocton County, Ohio in the late 1790s to early 1800s. Her sister, Margaret See Robinson, also settled here and is supposedly buried in the Robinson Family Cemetery just outside of Conesville, Coshoction County, Ohio. Tradition recounts that Elizabeth also died in this vicinity. See Findagrave Memorial No. 54392733.

While in captivity of the Shawnee Indians, it is said that Elizabeth was given in marriage to the son of Chief Cornstalk and that she stayed with him until he and his father were killed, returning home only after his death.

Notes for NICOLAS ZEH:

Nicholas Zeh was denied a Revolutionary War Pension because he failed to furnish proof of six months military services as required by law. He applied for pension 20 Sep 1842 while a resident of Williamsburg, Dundas, Canada, and alleged that while a resident of Schoharie, he enlisted and served in the New York troops as follows: in Aug or Sept. 1775, six months as a minute man in Captain John Bouck's Company, Colonel Peter Vrooman's Regiment.

Was on an expedition against the Scotch Tories, commanded by Colonel John Harper, and served four or five days. From Jan. 1778, six months under Captains Noble and John Tillmans or Dillmans. He then immediately enlisted as a boatman in the batteau service at Albany under Captain John Lefeller, length of service not stated. While in this service his house and barn were burnt by the British or Tories and his brother (name not stated) killed. He served one month at Middle Fort in Schoharie, date and officers not stated.

20. HENRICH BELLINGER 3 ZEH (JOHANNES2, JOHANNES1) was born Bef. 28 Dec 1740 in Schoharie, NewYork 298, and died 30 Nov 1802 in Berne, New York 299. He married ANNA MARIA SCHAEFFER 300 21 Dec 1766 in Schoharie, New York 300, daughter of JOHANNES SCHAEFFER and ANNA STARING. She was born 07 Oct 1741 in Loonenburg, Greene, New York 301,302, and died 13 Nov 1817 in Berne, New York 303.

Notes for HENRICH BELLINGER ZEH:

Johannes, Catharina, and their children moved to an area called Beaver Dam near what later became Berne, Albany County, New York about 1765. Here they operated a sawmill with the Werner family. Both families settled on farms surrounding the mill site. The location of these tracts of land may be seen on a survey map drawn up by William Cockburn for Stephen Van Rensselaer III in 1787. Many squatters, including the Zeh and Werner families had been living on Van Rensselaer's land for decades without paying rent; and he wanted to force leases upon them. The map shows, in the area that now includes Berne and Knox, about 90 irregularly shaped lots. This is evidence that they had settled prior to the survey because the shape of their lots matched the land actually cleared and settled. Other land was surveyed into lots of 160 square acres each. The names of Johannes and Catherine's sons, Henrich and Christian, may be seen on the 1787 survey map, occupying lots 584 and 565, respectively. The sawmill was located on lot 564.

"Hendrick" Zeh was enumerated on the 1790 US Census of Rensselaerville, Albany County, New York. Recorded were 2 free white males over 16 and 3 free white females.

Isaiah was the son of Asa Dibble of Saybrook, Connecticut and of the eighth generation from Robert Deeble and wife who joined the Dorchester Congreagation in Plymouth, England in 1629.

27. MARGARET4 SEE (JOHANN FREDERICK3, JOHANN GEORGE ZEH2 (SEE), JOHANNES1 ZEH)403 was born 1745 in Swatara, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and died 11 Mar 1815 in Franklin, Coshocton, Ohio 404. She married WILLIAM ROBINSON. He was born 18 Apr 1743 in Augusta County, Virginia, and died 18 Oct 1815 in Conesville, Coshocton, Ohio 405.

Notes for MARGARET SEE:

Margaret was married twice; but, there is no documentation as to the name of the first husband. It has been included in traditional tales of the Massacre in which her father was killed, that his son-in-law was also killed, and Margaret had a baby when taken captive which was later killed on the trail. However, the earliest tell of this incident, by John Stuart on 15 July 1798, does not mention this at all. Later telling of the tale relates that the son-in-law was a "Littleberry" or "Greenberry" Roach. Again, there is no documentation to support this later addition. Margaret could possibly be the daughter of Frederick by his first wife, depending on the actual birthdate of Margaret. Her tombstone inscription reads that she was 70 when she died, placing her birth year about 1745. Since he married Maria Stempel in 1744; and, there is definite documentation to support this; and, no documentation to support when or where he actually married Catherine, this question as to who her biological mother was is brought into play. Both Margaret and William are buried in the Robinson Family Cemetery in Conesville, Coshocton County, Ohio. Inscription: 70y; She was a good and faithful wife, A tender and affectionate mother, A kind and benevolent neighbor. She lived and died a Christian.

Notes for WILLIAM ROBINSON:

Major William Robinson served in the Revolutionary War as Adjutant of the 5th & 9th Regiments under Col. O. Towles. He was also a provider of material assistance to the troops. During Lord Dunmore's War, William experienced a unique and historic adventure. The following was reported in many histories, including Theodore Roosevelt's "The Winning of the West, Vol. 1" (NY 1906: G. P. Putnam & Sons), pages 243-244. William had been living in a fort in 1774 in order to be protected against Indian attack. He served in the fort militia. He may have earned the commission as major through training provided by his father, who served in the Virginia Militia. One day, outside the walls of the fort, William and two friends were working on the flax crop. They were attacked by Chief John Logan and his warriors of the Mingo Tribe. William was forced to run the gauntlet, then tied up to be burned at the stake three separate times. He was removed from the stake each time as the debate about his merit raged on amongst his captors. He was verbally defended by the Chief, himself, against the hostile element who wished to burn him. He was spared when Chief Logan adopted him. After about four months with Logan, Major Robinson escaped and returned to his family in Clarksburg, Virginia (now West Virginia).

It is interesting to note that his wife, Margaret See, had been a hostage of the Shawnee, after her first husband, father, and others were killed in the Muddy Creek Massacre of 15 July 1763. Margaret's mother and siblings were among the captives in the village of Chief Cornstalk until a hostage exchange was arranged. When William and Margaret moved to Ohio, her mother moved with them, along with a large group of family and friends. Some of these pioneers are buried in the cemetery beside William in the Robinson Family Cemetery, while others are interred in Bethany Cemetery. The inscription on William's tombstone reads "72 y 6 m An honest man's the noble mark of God". William had acquired 4,000 acres in what would soon become Franklin Township, Coshocton County, Ohio, near the town of Conesville. Prior to moving to Ohio, William had served as Mayor of Clarksburg; and, as the third Sheriff of Harris County, Virginia (WV).

Child of MARGARET SEE and WILLIAM ROBINSON is:

44. i. JAMES5 ROBINSON, b. 15 Nov 1787, Clarksburg, Harrison, West Virginia; d. 07 May 1856, Conesville, Coshocton, Ohio.

28. MICHAEL4 SEE (JOHANN FREDERICK3, JOHANN GEORGE ZEH2 (SEE), JOHANNES1 ZEH) 406 was born Abt. 1750 in Augusta County, Virginia 406, and died 14 May 1792 in Mason County, Virginia 406,407. He married ELIZABETH MORRIS 408,409 Abt. 1780 in Greenbrier, Virginia 410,411,412,413, daughter of WILLIAM MORRIS and ELIZABETH STIPPS. She was born 08 Aug 1753 in Culpepper, Virginia 414,415,416, and died 1800 in Kanawha, Virginia 417,418,418.

Notes for MICHAEL SEE: A CHRONICLE OF THE SEE FAMILY by Irene See Brasel The lives of the two brothers, George & Michael See, ran parallel. Together they had experienced the Muddy Creek Massacre, Indian captivity, participated in the battle of Point Pleasant, served under Capt. Arbuckle in border warfare, established their homes in Greenbrier and later moved on down the Kanawha Valley. Michael See, born about 1751 in Hampshire County, Virginia, married Elizabeth Morris in 1776. She was the daughter of William Morris, Pioneer of Kanawha who settled about 20 miles above the present site of Charleston, West Virginia.

In 1777, the Ohio Indians, agitated by British agents, again became troublesome. Chief Cornstalk came to the garrison at Point Pleasant to give warning that the tribes planned to join the British as allies. Capt. Arbuckle thought it best to detain the chief, his son Elinipisco, Redhawk, a Delaware Chief, and another Indian as hostages. Here in November 1777 all were murdered by soldiers of the garrison to avenge the death of a Virginia soldier, one Gilmore, killed while the Indians were prisoners. The Governor of Virginia offered a reward for the arrest of the murderers; but, they went unpunished; and, for this act of treachery, Chief Cornstalk's followers took to the warpath to avenge his death.

In July 1778, an Indian Band of 200 warriors crossed the Ohio River and failing in their attack on the garrison at Point Pleasant, set off up the valley toward the Greenbrier Region. Capt. McKee, in command of the garrison, noting the route taken by the Indians, sent two scouts disguised as Indians, at the risk of their lives, to warn the settlement in Greenbrier. Although the Indians had a two day start, the scouts, Phillip Hammond and John Prior, overtook the band about 20 miles north of Lewisburg. Passing on with great speed to Col. Donnally's, they gave the alarm of the approach- ing raiders.

The aroused settlement fled to Donnally's Fort. Dick Pointer, the Negro servant of Michael See, was one of the 60 men, women & children gathered in the stockade. The two young scouts warned Col. Donnally to store a supply of water. they told of the suffer- ing for water at Point Pleasant in the same emergency. A hogshead of water was secured and placed against the kitchen door. Early next morning, John Pritchard, a white servant of Donnally's, left the fort, leaving the gate ajar. He was tomahawked. The sentinel, William Hughart, saw Indians and spread the alarm.

The gate still open, the outer yard was soon full of Indians who began cutting down the kitchen door. Dick Pointer, jumping about with a gun in his hand called "Massa, what must I do?" "Shoot, and quick at the bunch, damn you!" Dick obeyed, killing nine Indians with his Blunderbuss loaded with a variety of missiles. The recoil laid the Negro flat. Hammond fired another shot and the door was closed. The sleeping refugees were now aroused and soon opened fire through the port holes. The battle continued throughout the day. The Indians tried every conceivable way to take the fort.

Meanwhile, a relief party of 67 from Lewisburg under Capt. Johnson started for the fort and though the Indians opened fire, managed to enter without casualties. By nightfall, the Indians withdrew, having lost 17, while the whites had 4 killed. For this heroic act, Pointer was given his freedom and the public built a cabin for him on land given by one John Davis. Dick died in 1827 and was buried in Lewisburg Cemetery.

In 1776, Capt. Mathew Arbuckle built a fort at the mouth of the Kanawha River. It was called Fort Randolph. Prior to July 12, 1779, Fort Randolph was evacuated, after which it was burned by the Indians. In the year 1785, a third fort was built at the Point on the Ohio River. New Fort Randolph was commanded by Col. Thomas Lewis and from that time on, the white man has never ceased to reside at Point Pleasant.

Ten years after the Revolution, Indian hostility on the frontier of the young nation still made life for the settlers unsafe. By this time, the Sees had joined the tide of westward land seekers and had moved down the Kanawha Valley and settled on Crooked Creek about a mile above the mouth of the Kanawha River. Michael See, his wife Elizabeth and their four children, George, Michael, Frances and Frederick were living at the fort with the other settlers near Point Pleasant. For several years these pioneers were forced to spend more time in the forts than at their homes. Michael See was a signer of the petition to the Governor of Virginia, Sept. 19, 1791, asking protection for citizens of Greenbrier County against the Indians. In Virginia State Papers, Oct. 3, 1791, John Morris, John Hansford, John Jones, Reuben Slaughter, and Michael See were recommended as fit persons to execute the office of Magistrates in Kanawha County.

On May 23, 1792, Michael See was supervising the cultivation of the crops for the settlers at Fort Randolph. A squad of 10 soldiers had been sent from the fort to guard the men while they worked. The day was warm and the soldiers retired to the shade of a tree and engaged in a game of cards. A band of Wyandottes slipped up and under their very noses, killed Michael See and Robert St. Clair and took Thomas Northup and a Negro boy, Jonathan Pointer, who belonged to Michael, prisoners.

That night at the Fort, Elizabeth See gave birth to William, from whom are descended the Sees of Mason County, West Virginia. Michael See was buried near the fort. The story told in later years is that the Mason County Court House was built with one corner over Michael's grave and another over the grave of Chief Cornstalk. Today a two acre state park, Tu-Endie Wei marks the site of the famous battleground.

The Revolutionary Service Record of Michael See, Jr. was accepted by the Daughters of the American Revolution June 6, 1940. Anne Weller Ready lists the name of Michael See on page 70 in West Virginia Revolutionary Ancestry. At the Virginia State Library at Richmond is an original document, Public Service Claims. It states (in part): "At a court held for Greenbrier County, June 10, 1782, the following claims were allowed and ordered to be certified: To George See 74 Rations State 3 14 G To Michael See 74 Do State 3 14 From "History of the Great Kanawha Valley Vol II" by J. P. Hale, Page 278: "Before the founding of Marietta and while the owl hooted among the branches of the lofty trees, the howl of the wolf and the scream of the panther resounded through the forest, and while the fox dug his hole "unscared", on the site where that city now stands, daring pioneers among whom were Daniel Boone, John Van Bibber, John Reynolds, Isaac Tyler, Michael See, Robert St. Clair, Benjamin Eulin, and Lumin Gibbs were dwelling their cabin homes around the walls of old Fort Randolph at Point Pleasant."

Notes for FREDERICK SEE:

Few traces of this fourth child of Michael and Elizabeth Morris See are to be found. His name is on the deed that Michael's heirs made to Andrew Donnally for 400 acres of land on 10 Aug 1807, Deed Book D, Page 311. Miss Clara See gives an account of Frederick as related by her father, who was a nephew. He was said to have been with a show boat which traveled up and down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. In New Orleans he made the acquaintance of a well to do widow from Texas. They married and he returned with her to live in Texas. The last reference to Frederick was during the Civil War when young Charles Michael See, son of Shull M. See, came in contact with a couple of brothers named See, who were confederate prisoners under his guard. They identified themselves as the sons of Frederick See as described above; but, the details have not survived the passage of time.

Notes for GEORGE SEE:

Greenbrier County, Virginia Court allowed on 10 Jun 1782, allowed George See's claims for rations. This proves that he served in the Revolutionary War. Unfortunately, at the time of his application for a pension, this proof was not made available.

30. JOHN 4 SEE (JOHANN FREDERICK3, JOHANN GEORGE ZEH2 (SEE), JOHANNES1 ZEH)440,441 was born 10 Oct 1757 in Augusta County, Virginia 442, and died 15 Dec 1836 in Decatur, Macon, Illinois 442,443. He married MARGARET JARRETT 444,445 09 Sep 1780 in Kanawha County, Virginia 446,447,448, daughter of DAVID JARRETT. She was born Abt. 1761 in Kanawha County, Virginia 449, and died 1836 in Koscuisko County, Indiana 449. Notes for JOHN SEE: Most See family histories give John's date of birth as 10 Oct 1757 in Hampshire or Hardy County, Virginia, but without documentation. The year fits with his pension record, but the location is more likely to be Augusta County, near the Jackson or Cowpasture River Settlements since that is where Frederick and Felty fled after the attacks on Baughman's fort in summer of 1755. Based on militia records, they were in the Jackson/Cowpasture area in Oct 1756. We can also argue that Frederick was not in South Branch in 1757 when his mom wrote her will, because she made her younger son, George, executor, nor Fred, probably because he was not around. This argument is contributed by Sara Patton.

There is no evidence for the date of birth of John See other than the following: State of Indiana Henry County Circuit Court September Term, 1832 On this 29th of September in the year 1832 appeared before the Honorable Henry Circuit Court in the State of Indiana, John See, aged 75 years, who being duly sworn according to the law depos- eth and doth upon his oath, make the following declaration to obtain the benefits of the provision of the act of the 7th of June 1832: That he enlisted in the army of the United States in the year 1776 under Captain Arbuckle in Greenbrier County, Virginia for the term of one year for the purpose of defending the western frontier of Virginia from the incursions of the hostile Indians. He was then marched to the mouth of the Kanawha where they remained for nearly twelve months and, in the meantime, they erected a fort at the mouth of the said Kanawha and was dis- charged in September 1777, having served one year. That he thinks it was in the year 1779 he enlisted in the Army of the United States for the term of three years in Bottetourt County, Virginia under Captain Lapsley in the 12th Virginia Regiment in General Scott's Brigade, from thence he joined the main army at a place called West Camps in Pennsylvania under the command of General Washington. He then went into winter camp at Valley Forge, at this time the applicant was under the command of Captain Breckenridge. From Valley Forge, the main army was marched to Monmouth, New Jersey where a battle was fought where the applicant engaged with the rest of the army. The army was then marched to White Plains, then returned to New Jersey and went into winter quarters at Middleboro. During the next winter, the army encamped on the North River and the applicant was discharged the next spring at Camden, South Carolina, having served three years. During this service, he was at the battle of Monmouth under General Washington at Stony Point, General Wayne and in Germantown under General Washington and the aforesaid John See, the applicant, relinquished every claim whatso- ever to a pension or annuity except the present and he declares that his name is not on the pension roll of any agency in any state or territory in the United States. Sworn and subscribed in open court this 29th day of September 1832. His witness John Elliott Clk. John X See (mark) And the said Court do hereby declare their opinion that the above named applicant was a Revolutionary Soldier and served as he stated. Judges Byrone Cadwallerader John Anderson

Death date and place is still in question as there is no good documentation and lots of disagreement.

Notes for FRANCES SEE: I

NFORMATION PROVIDED BY SYLVIA WHITTAKER OF FAIRVIEW WEST VIRGINIA: Frances See Morris has been described by her sister-in-law, Nancy Greenlee See, wife Michael See III, as being tall and very strong, having piercing black eyes and dark complexion. It is said that she could stand in a half bushel measure and lift a two bushel bag of wheat to her shoulder. It is also related that she shot a wild turkey which was sitting on the limb of a dead tree on the opposite bank of the Kanawha River, a distance of some 300 yards.

Notes:

After Carroll's death, Frances Morris married Christopher Ringsberry and lived in Mason County, VA until at least 1840, when Christopher Ringsberry is in the Census there with a family. Sometime after 1840 and before 1850 they moved to Montpelier, Muscatine County, Iowa. Frances died there sometime after the 1856 Iowa State Census; but before the 1860 US Census. Christopher was still living by the time of the 1870 US Census in the same town with their married daughter, Elizabeth Watts, and her family. Frances is buried in the Blue Grass Cemetery, Scott County, Iowa. Her tombstone reads that she died at the age of 76 years. If this is true, she would actually have been born in 1782.

Notes for CARROLL MORRIS:

Carroll Morris was a member of the general assembly in 1805. He was also the father-in-law of John Hansford, himself a member of the general assembly from 1812 to 1816 and in 1819. He was the brother-in-law of Isaac Noyes as well. The Department of the Archives and History of West Virginia, page 125, names Caroll Morris in Capt. John Morris' Company of Rangers of Kanawha County, called into service by General Henry Knox, Secretary of War, May 1, 1791 until September 30, 1791. He drowned while attempting to swim across the Kanawha River, just below Upper Creek Shoals. He was an excellent swimmer, but the strong current drew him under.

Notes for CHRISTOPHER RINGLESBY:

Christopher Ringsberry served in the 4th Regiment of the Virginia Militia as a Private during the war of 1812. He was in Capt. Mathew McCowen's Company from 20 Apr 1814 until 29 Aug 1814. His pension file states that he was drafted at Charleston, Virginia and discharged at Norfolk, Virginia. At first his application was returned for further proof because of the incorrect spelling of his name; and the application does include both forms of the name: Ringsbury and Ringlesby. The claim which he filled out shows that his family was living in Montpelier, Muscatine County, Iowa; but the post office was across the road in Blue Grass, Scott County, Iowa. The pension record also states that he actually served in the 3rd Regiment of the Virginia Militia rather than the 4th as stated in an index of the roles of the War of 1812. His declaration for pension states that he married Frances Morris at Mason County, Virginia in 1818. This declaration was made on 27 Jul 1871 and claims that Christopher is 92 years old on this date. If the declaration is true it would make his birth date in the year 1789 rather than 1782 and would have Carroll Morris dying sometime before 1818. I suspect that he is so old by this time that his memory is failing

Next to where Christopher Ringsberry/Ringsby/Ringsley/Ringlesby is buried in the Blue Grass Cemetery, there is a John Ringlesby buried there. He died 15 Apr 1855 at the age of 74. I believe that this could be a brother of Christopher. There also was a Fielden Ringsby, born in Virginia, who went to live in Hamilton County, Ohio; and, appears in the 1860 Census there with his family which includes a son named Christopher. I believe this Fielden Ringsby to also be a brother of Christopher. There were other possible brothers who were early arrivals with some of the first settlers of the area. They settled in Davenport, Scott County, Iowa. Their names were Lewis, Andrew, and Strother Ringlesby. John had also actually lived in Davenport.

 Note: Since writing the paragraph above, I have found a copy of the will of John Ringlesby. He divides his estate into quarters. One quarter is left to Christopher Ringlesby, one quarter to Lewis Ringlesby, one quarter to Fielden Ringsby, with the last quarter divided between Richard and Frances Bowman, John Emly (designated as his nephew), and Mary Sherman (designated as his niece). Even though he does not designate Christopher, Lewis, and Fielden as his brothers, I am more than convinced that they were indeed his brothers. Although, I do not yet know the names of the parents, I am chosing to represent them as brothers at this time. He also designated Christopher and Lewis Ringlesby as executors of his estate.

FROM THE "DAVENPORT DEMOCRAT" 20 Sep 1873:

Christopher Ringlesby, aged ninety-four years, died in Montpelier Township, Muscatine County, on Tuesday. He was born in Virginia in 1779, and had been a resident of that county about thirty years. He was the oldest man in Muscatine County.

SCOTT COUNTY W.P.A. RECORDS:

Ringlisby, Christopher died 09-17-1873 Blue Grass Cemetery, Blue Grass, Iowa Frances died 1857, aged 76 Blue Grass Cemetery, Blue Grass, Iowa Frances died 1855, aged 26 Chapell Cemetery, Rockingham Township, Iowa The second Frances above, born about 1829 was the wife of John Quincy Adams Ringlesby, the son of Lewis Ringlesby and, therefore, the nephew of Christopher. Her full name was Frances Roseman Ringlesby.

LAND HOLDINGS:

A Land Grant issued to Christopher Ringsby on 30 Jun 1843 for 50 acres surveyed on 05 Mar 1837 in Mason County, Virginia (now West Virginia), Warrant 2486, Grants No. 94, 1842-1843, Page 369, reel 160 housed in the Library of Virginia. A Land Patent was issued to Christopher Ringsby at the Fairfield Land Office on 01 Mar 1846 for 80 acres in Muscatine County, Iowa, Patent No. 11491 -IA1940_314. A Patent for another 40 acres was issued to his son, George Ringsby, adjoining this land on Patent No.11492 -IA1940_ 315 on the same date. I believe this is the same 120 acres which the Watts family later owned.

Notes for WILLIAM SEE:

William was born the very eve of the day that his father was killed by the Indians. Within the pages of "History of the Great Kanawha Valley Vol II by J. P. Hale, Page 282, we are told that William was a Volunteer in the Mason County Riflemen during the war of 1812. During this war, in the year 1813, he met and became acquainted with a Black Indian Chief who had originally been a prisoner taken during the same time as the massacres during which his father, Michael See, had been killed. This chief informed him that the Indian who had shot his father, though blind, aged and helpless, was still living. Young William besought the chief to tell him where this Indian was; but, fearing that William would kill the old man the chief declined to give him the information.

THE WEST VIRGINIA COURIER: Wednesday, April 26, 1876 The remains of the late Mrs. Letitia Whittaker were placed in their final resting place in Spring Hill Cemetery on Tuesday evening.

Notes for NORRIS STANLEY WHITTEKER:

Norris Stanley Whitteker was named after Captain Norris Stanley of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Norris Whitteker's father, William, had stayed in Philadelphia with Norris Stanley and his family while going to school to learn navigation. It was here that he heard Norris Stanley's stories of his adventures at sea. And, Norris Stanley had plenty of stories to tell. According to a story which was reported in The Southern Patriot Newspaper of 14 Apr 1848, Capt. Norris Stanley had come to America aboard the ship Caroline of Philadelphia with another young, poor boy, John Jacob Astor. Both later became very wealthy merchants. Norris Stanley's obituary, reported in the Trenton State Gazette of 12 May 1851 stated that he had served under Commodore John Paul Jones during the American Revolution in several actions. William was so impressed by his stories that he not only signed up to go to sea as a carpenter's mate on a ship sailing to China; but, he named his first born son after the story teller.

"History of Kanawha County" by George Atkinson - Page 280-281: Mr Whitteker is a man of great physical power and endurance. He is 5 ft 8 in tall and his average weight for 50 years has been 180 lbs. Norris S. Whitteker was born in Charleston, Kanawha County, Virginia on 3rd February 1807, where he has resided ever since. He has always claimed the honor of being the first white child born in the city limits of Charleston, and in this, no doubt he is correct. He established a reputation for being an expert fisherman and hunter in his younger years. He attended school at the Mercer Academy, under the instruction of Dr. Henry Ruffner, Jacob Rand, and Parson Chaddock, and obtained a fair English education. After he grew to manhood, he became a Keel boatman in the trade between Charleston and Cincinnati, which required about one month to complete the round trip. These boat were the only transportation, in those days, between the Kanawha and the Western cities. Mr. Whitteker's next occupation was that of Flat boatman, running salt to the towns on the lower Ohio. He next learned the carpenters' trade and there are a number of houses still standing in Charleston, constructed by him as architect & builder. He also learned the painters' trade and painted more houses in Charleston than any man. His Uncle Thomas Whitteker was the proprietor of a large saw mill at the mouth of the Elk River, and for 11 years, Norris was head sawyer at the mill, and superintendent of building boats, which was carried on as part of the business of all saw mills of the time. He was also engaged in steam boating in the employ of Armstrong Grant & Co. as Mate on the steamer "Emigrant" from 1828 until 1830. In 1831 he built three large brick houses on Kanawha Street, now owned by W. T. Thayer, Mrs. W. J. Rand and John C. Ruby. All of these houses were constructed of brick made by Norris' own hands. It was in this same year that he was joined to the Kanawha Presbyterian Church, the first Presbyterian congregation in Charleston, by examination. This is according to the original church records which are in possession of the Kanawha United Presbyterian Church of Charleston. It is said of him, in these records, that he was an ardent supporter of the missions and lived a consistently Christian life. Mr. Whitteker was an ardent supporter of the Union, and as a token of respect and confidence, he was appointed Postmaster of Charleston, in the Spring of 1861 by President Lincoln, which office he held until the Fall of 1866, when he was removed by President Johnson, because he refused to pay allegiance to him after he switched to the Democratic Party upon the Assassination of President Lincoln. During the War, Charleston was an important military post; and, on one memorable day his registry book showed that 40,000 letters passed through his office. For three or four years the average had been 12,000 per day. That is more than treble the letters now handled in the same office, although the town has more than trebled it's population. Mr. Whitteker was a noted temperance worker in Charleston and surrounding country for more than 40 years. During that time, he delivered more than one thousand Temperance speeches. In 1830 he joined the Washingtonian Temperance Society. During the rest of his life he never even tasted anything intoxicating.

NOTE: The West Virginia State Archives has the records of the first Temperance Society in Charleston in their special collection of manuscripts. It is a book of the minutes of the meetings which were held once a month. The book covers the years 1839-1841. I obtained copies of some of the meeting minutes which mention not only the name of Norris Whitteker as a member; but, also the names of Henry B. Whitteker, William Whitteker, and an "A. Whitteker". These names could represent the names of the three brothers of Norris as all were alive and possibly in town during the time of the meetings. This society functioned much like the Alcoholics Anonymous of today except that those who attended the meetings were required to sign pledges that they would not drink "ardent spirits" during the month until the next meeting and that they would do everything within their power to discourage others from imbibing as well. The copies I have show that William Whitteker and Norris Whitteker signed such a pledge at one of the meetings. There is no way of knowing if the "Wm. Whitteker" who signed this pledge was Norris' brother, William F. Whitteker, or his father, William Whitteker, Sr. "A. Whitteker" signed the bottom of one page as "secretary" of the society and Henry B. Whitteker and A. Whitteker were mentioned as speakers at the meetings as well.

From WV Newspaper Obituaries 1884-1894 by KVGS Saturday, September 7, 1889 Charleston, West Virginia September 4 Norris S. Whitaker, aged 83 years, who was the first white child born in the city limits of Charleston, was killed by the shifting engine at the Kanawha and Ohio Yard this afternoon at about 4:00 O'clock. All the wheels passed over the middle of his body.

Note: The Kanawha County Death Register reports the death as having occurred in 1890 on the same date. I believe this register to be in error. The inquest which was held into this death took place in 1889. From the Wheeling Register of 05 Sep 1889: Charleston, W. Va., September 4th, Norris Whittaker was run over and killed by an engine and cars on the K & O Railroad this afternoon. The remains were taken to his home. It was purely an accident, as the old man was hard of hearing.

Jurors: George Hall, foreman William Bleaker J. H. Caruther Roy Watson Morgan D. Stalnaker E. C. Lyme C. O. Scarbury S. Cohen Wm. Gilligan John M. Allen Perry Gatewood E. Langhorn

Testimony as to the accident was given, oddly enough, in the presence of the remains of Norris Whitteker, the deceased. The accident was described in this way. The engine was approaching the bridge at Elk River pointing in the direction of the river. There were three men on the engine, the engineer, another man behind him, and one more on the back of the engine. There was also a man standing at the front of the engine, on the bridge side. At the back of the engine, were Norris Whitteker and one other man, both walking away from the engine, toward East Charleston and away from the bridge. Norris was the closest to the back of the engine, according to testimony, only about three feet behind it when he stepped onto the track; the other man was further away, walking with his back to the engine, the same as Norris was. All of a sudden the engine started backing up, ringing the bell. The man on the back of the engine yelled something; and, Norris fell. The man at the back of the engine tried to grab hold of him; but, missed and Norris went under the wheel and was killed instantly, being cut in two by the wheel. The man who had been walking ahead of Norris testified that he heard the bell and noise, whereupon, he turned around; but did not see anything because the whole event had already transpired and Norris was dead on the track.

The jury found that the Railroad was not at fault in any way for this accident. It was Engine No. 51 which had been the engine involved in this accident. Newspapers later reported that it was a complete accident as Norris had been "hard of hearing". I had read in some history books that Norris had worked for the railroad later in his life; but, was never able to ascertain just what his job was because the railroad did not start to keep track of it's employees, historically, until a few years after this accident took place. Norris was 82 years old; and, apparently, still working on this day. To me it sounds as though the people who testified did so under the stress of keeping their jobs. The telltale clue is that the man walking in front of Norris had not even the time to turn around, after having heard the bell, and Norris had already been hit. I think it likely that Norris was too close to the back of the engine when it started to back up to be able to have escaped. I also do not think that the engineer rang the bell until it was too late (he had already started backing up) and that there should have been communication between the man on back and the engineer before the engine started backing up.

LAND HOLDINGS:

Norris and his brother, Henry B. Whitteker, bought from Isaac Noyes a lot in Charleston fronting 300 ft. on the Kanawha River bank, in 1832. This was Norris Whitteker's first purchase recorded in Deed Book H. Page 349. Four years later, in 1836 he, by himself, bought from John F. Faure and his wife a 2 acre lot in Charleston, Deed Book IJ, Page 199. Thomas C. Thomas sold him another 1/2 acre lot in Charleston the same year, Deed Book IJ, Page 357. The next year, he obtained from Frederick Brooks, two parcels 1 1/2 acre and 3 acres near Charleston, Deed Book IJ, Page 474. In 1842, in partnership with brothers Alfred T. and William F. Whitteker, he gained 152 acres in Kanawha County, Deed Book N, Page 180. Then, not until 23 years later, in 1865, did he buy another parcel, the Cox property back of Charleston from the heirs of William R. Cox, Deed Book Y, Page 565. Norris bought a lot on Brooks Street in Charleston from William T. Thayer and his wife in 1868; and the following year, in partnership with Virginia Whitteker, he bought from the George H. Porter Trust 110 acres on the point and 620 acres on the Elk at Two Mile Creek, recorded in Deed Book 25, Page 497. Another 100 acres on the Elk at Two Mile was purchased from the H. C. McWhorter Trust in 1869, Deed Book 26, Page 333.

60. MICHAEL SEE 6 MORRIS (FRANCES5 SEE, MICHAEL4, JOHANN FREDERICK3, JOHANN GEORGE ZEH2 (SEE), JOHANNES1 ZEH)900 was born Abt. 1812 in Kanawha, Virginia. He married JANE. She was born Abt. 1828 in Illinois 901.

Notes for MICHAEL SEE MORRIS:

From "History of Marion County, Iowa" by Wright and Young, 1915, Polk Township, pages 121-123: In 1850 Warren D. Everett, Michael S. Morris, and James Karr joined together and built a saw mill near the south bank of the Des Moines River. It was a crude affair, driven by horse power, but it answered the purpose in the absence of a better one, and much of the lumber used by the early settlers was made by this mill.

LAND HOLDINGS:

A patent was issued to Michael S. Morris 10 Apr 1849 for a total of 160.1 acres in Marion County, Iowa by the Iowa City Land Office. The acreage was contained within the "76-N" Township of the 19-W Range and 5th PM Meridian. In the 1850 US Census this land was not designated as a town; but was described only as Marion County, Iowa. Michael had already appeared in the 1847 Iowa State Census in Marion County as the head of a family of five people. They may not have stayed in this area long as there was a Michael Morris in the 1852 Muscatine County, Iowa State Census at Bloomington; and, the listing for a Michael in Marion County disappeared. Notes for JANE: The 1850 Marion County, Iowa Census shows two other individuals than those shown in the family group living with Michael and his wife. Elizabeth Hegwood, aged 17, born in Illinois could very well be the sister of Michael's wife, Jane, who was also born in Illinois. If this is the case, her full maiden name would have been Jane Hegwood.

viii. PANTHA C. WATTS 932, d. 31 May 1856, Montpelier, Muscatine Co., Iowa 932.

Notes for PANTHA C. WATTS:

There is some question as to the age of this child when she died. According to "History of Muscatine County Iowa Vol II", Page 504, she died in infancy. She does not appear in any of the Census records; not the US Census for the area or the Iowa State Census, both of which the rest of her whole family were recorded in. I believe she probably died as an infant. The Iowa State Census was taken every two years around this time; and, if she were any older she would have been in the 1856 Montpelier, Muscatine County, Iowa State Census with the rest of her family. The marker on her grave was barely readable by the time of the 1970s which was the last time a walk through and recording in the Blue Grass Cemetery was done. The marker looked as if it said "Pantha C. daughter of J. & E., died May 31, 1856" then it looked as if it read "7 yr 1mo 13 or 15 days". I hope to get a photo of it because I believe it is probably really " 1mo 13 or 15 days" only. If she were really 7 years old at the time of death, she would definitely have been in the 1852 and 1854 Iowa State Census.

ZEH, 82, of 182 3rd Ave., who has been a physician for 70 years, died this morning in Leonard Hospital, Troy, where he had a patient for one week. He had been in failing health for some time however, and in spite of it had been practicing at his home almost up until the time of his death. In 1953 he was honored by Watervliet residents not only as one of its physicians but at that time as one of the oldest practitioners in the United States. Dr. Zeh was born in Knox, Albany County, Aug. 2, 1867 son of the late Elias and Ann Elizabeth Osterhout Zeh. He was husband of the late Edna A. Miller Zeh. His survivors include a son, Arthur P. Zeh, and one daughter, Sister Lydia the Episcopal Order of All Saints who had been caring to her father for some time. The funeral is to be Tuesday at 9 a.m. from the Cummings Funeral Home, 643 3rd Ave. Watervliet, and thence to Trinity Episcopal Church, of which he was a communicant, where a Requiem Mass will be celebrated, Interment will take place in Albany Rural Cemetery.

He was a member of the Hudson River Chapter, RAM, and Evening Star Lodge, F&AM, at Watervliet. Members of his family, at the time of his testimonial, said that Dr. Zeh had delivered more than a thousand babies. He attended Knox Academy and received his teaching license March 25, 1884 for the Third School District of West Troy, now Watervliet. The doctor then studied pharmacy in West Troy at several establishments. He was the 305th licensed pharmacist in New York State. In 1887 he was appointed health officer of West Troy at a salary of $200 a year. He received his medical degree from Union University, Albany Medical College in 1889. At the time of his graduation his class numbered 41. He was health officer and surgeon for Breaker Island Foundries some years ago and was member of the auxiliary sfaff of the former Troy Hospital now St. Mary's Hospital of Troy. He became a qualified medical doctor at the age of 21, for in those years the medical course was three years. He qualified in two years, however because of his pharmacy training and high grades at Albany Medical College.

Notes for WILLIAM W. WHITTAKER:

William W. Whittaker, the son of William W. & Virginia High Whittaker, must have died between 30 Sep 1930, when he was listed as a witness in the Fiduciary Settlement of the Estate of Virginia High Whittaker, and the 18th day of Jul 1931, when the final settlement was made. He was listed as the administrator of the Will of his sister, Lena, on 21 Nov 1929, which was completed 25 Jan 1930. So, he must have died between the end of the year 1930; and, the 02 May 1933, when his estate was finally settled. This settlement states that there were $17,072.62 in property not subject to debts obtained on account of death by wrongful act. Exactly what this wrongful act was is not explained.

Since the above was written, the death certificate of William has been located. It was mistakenly filed under the name William B. Whitaker. He died of Bronchial Pneumonia on April 29, 1933. Information on the certificate was given by a Mrs. N. W. Crummitt of Charleston. The pneumonia was a result of an auto accident in which his 3rd and 4th ribs were fractured. His profession was boiler maker; and, the certificate states that he was a widower at the time of his death. The Charleston Daily Mail, Evening Edition, December 31, 1915 stated that he was very ill in his home at 147 Court Street. According to this piece, he was an employee of the Ward Boiler Works on the south side. Although his condition during this bout of illness was described as "very serious", he evidently recovered and went on to live for another 15 years.

74. WILLIAM WALLACE 7 WHITTAKER (LETITIA6 MORRIS, FRANCES5 SEE, MICHAEL4, JOHANN FREDERICK3, JOHANN GEORGE ZEH2 (SEE), JOHANNES1 ZEH)1119 was born 1842 in Charleston, Kanawha, Virgina 1120,1121, and died 19 Apr 1890 in Portsmouth, Scioto, Ohio 1122. He married VIRGINIA F. HIGH 1123 14 Jul 1860 in Gallia County, Ohio 1124,1125, daughter of JOHN HIGH and ELLANOR SHIELDS. She was born 18 Sep 1842 in Putnam County, Virginia 1126,1127, and died 02 Aug 1930 in Charleston, Kanawha, West Virginia 1128.

Notes for WILLIAM WALLACE WHITTAKER:

The 13th Regiment of the West Virginia Infantry was organized in October of 1862, when William W. Whitteker began his service in the Union Army. Within only a few months, he was injured by a box falling on his leg and dislocating his knee; and was discharged with a disability in March of 1863. He was crippled by this dislocation. He was even listed on one of his childrens' death certificates as "Bent" Whittaker under name of father. During his service, the 13th Regiment served in the Kanawha Valley, mostly doing guard duty and scouting. After his discharge, the Regiment went on to fight in many skirmishes and eventually fought in the Battle of Lexington and the Battle of Lynchburg. They displayed conspicuous gallantry in the Battle of Winchester, Virginia. After his service, his life only lasted until he was 47 years old. He died of tuberculosis as stated in the application for widow's pension by his wife, Virginia High Whittaker. He is buried in the Greenlawn Cemetery at Portsmouth Ohio, in the Soldiers' Circle, Section A, Row 4, Grave 9.

There is a photograph, which I believe, after much thought and research, to be of William W. Whittaker. It was amongst the photos which belonged to his sister, Roxalena Whittaker Garcelon and her husband, John Winchester Garcelon. This photo cannot be any of the brothers of John Winchester Garcelon. It cannot be William G. Garcelon born 10 Nov 1819 in Charlotte, NB, Canada. He married and apparently lived his whole life in Oak Bay, where he died on 08 Jan 1888. It cannot be John Anson Garcelon born 27 Jan 1821 in Oak Bay as he died 31 Jul 1832 in Oak Bay long before the Civil War. It cannot be George Moore Garcelon born 11 Oct 1825 at Oak Bay because he moved to Minnesota and there is no record of him having served. It cannot be Elhanan Winchester Garcelon born 03 Dec 1829 as he died 19 Dec 1830 in Oak Bay. It is not Isaac Warren Garcelon born 19 Oct 1835 in Oak Bay who also moved to Minnesota; but did not serve there. And, finally, it was not possibly Charles Wesley Garcelon born 09 Oct 1837 in Oak Bay who died 11 Nov 1837 in Oak Bay. On Roxalena Whittaker Garcelon's side of the family, she only had two brothers; William W. Whittaker and Henry B. Whittaker. Henry B. Whittaker was born in 1845 in Charleston, Kanawha County, Virginia. There was one Henry B. Whitaker who served in the 72 Ohio Infantry. I obtained his pension file and was able to disqualify him immediately as he was born in Ohio of totally different parentage and had a different wife and different children. There is no record of Henry B. ever serving during the Civil War then. Of Roxalena's sisters, Philena Whittaker's husband Fielding Stark fought for the Confederacy in the 8th Virginia Cavalry, Company D. The last possibility would have been the husband of Elizabeth Whittaker, Phillip Reece, born. 1823 in Kanawha County, Virginia. There was only one Phillip Reece who served in the Union Army and he was from Pennsylvania.

Once I had established that there was a real likelihood that William W. Whittaker, my great grandfather was the subject of this photo, I started to compare his likeness to the only available photos of his grandsons, my mother's twin brothers, Lawrence and John Whitaker. In the photo, William has a full beard which has not been trimmed. This covers the lower one third of his face, hiding the mouth and jaw line. The upper two thirds of his face, including the left ear, is quite visible, though. When I compare the hair lines and shape of the foreheads of all three individuals, they are almost identical. The position of the eyebrows is identical. Also the distance between the eyebrows and the eyes is identical. The shape and length of the noses are very similar. Unfortunately, the ears in my uncles' photos are not very clear; but the outline, size, and shape of the ears are the same. They say that the ears are one of the best identifiers of related individuals. I compared this photo to a photo of Roxalena from later in her life and the ears were similar and the shape and length of the nose similar. This photo brought something else to my attention; a line running from the corner of the nose down to the corner of the mouth. All in my mom's family, all brothers and sisters, Roxalena, myself, and the man in the Civil War photo have this line visible.

I had tried, early on after first obtaining the photo, to find something on what the uniforms of the 13th West Virginia Infantry looked like. This is not easy to ascertain. The jacket that is worn in the photo is what is called a "roundabout jacket". A private's roundabout jacket should have had piping around the collar and down the front of the jacket; but this jacket does not have any. However, there are no visible stripes or other insignia, other than the patches on the shoulders which would denote his regiment. They, however, are not clear enough to tell. I am reasonably sure that some of these items of the uniforms may have been home-made and therefore, not entirely picture perfect. I believe the photo was taken a bit later than the actual war, possibly for a reunion. I think this because he looks to be in his mid thirties and the jacket does not seem to fit correctly with only the top button buttoned. The buttons of his vest show beneath the opening of the jacket. His eyes have a haunting quality to them and appear to be very glassy. I think this fits in with the scenario of his injury as he probably would have been in pain for the rest of his life. He may have even been on pain killers which were readily available without prescriptions in his day or may have taken advantage of some other means of deadening the pain. It is truly a shame that they did not know how to fix a dislocated knee back then.

The Wheeling Register of 14 Sep 1882 reported a huge reunion of all West Virginia Civil War surviving veteran soldiers at Parkersburg, West Virginia. The 13th West Virginia Infantry was well represented. I must admit that this photo stayed with me in my mind since the day I saw it. I could not let it go as it exerted a strange attraction upon me. I kept thinking: "Can this really be my great grandfather William"? The answer is it turns out: "Yes it can"!

Notes for VIRGINIA F. HIGH:

Virginia's Civil War Widow's Pension Certificate states that she received a total of $14.00 per month in 1890. This was to be reduced by two dollars for each of her three sons; Burlew, Charles, and Albert as they reached the age of 16 years. Lived at 209 Tennessee Avenue, Charleston, West Virginia. According to her death certificate, she died of senility, contributing cause was heart failure. Undertaker was John Barlow.

Notes for BENJAMIN E. WHITTAKER:

I never knew my grandfather, Benjamin Whittaker, face to face; but, my mom's tales of him made him seem bigger than life. He was a tall, husky man, with prematurely gray hair. It was he who was the disciplinarian of the family; especially doling out justice to my mother's twin brothers, John and Lawrence, who, according to her were the hellions of the family. They were strapped by Ben for such deeds as throwing their twin sisters in the Ohio River and telling them "Swim or Drown!", pushing my mom off of the hay loft into a pile of hay so she hit so hard that her front tooth came out in her knee; and, many other such things.

Ben was also the hard worker of the family, working in the foundry as a fireman, working on construction projects, piloting boats on the river, and even painting houses in order to support his family. Benjamin was the one who gave the nickname "Neva" to my grandmother; and, it was given to her so well that it is the name which appears in all of her documentation; even on her tombstone.

Benjamin seemed to be a Jack of all trades, doing whatever he could to make a living for his family. The family also moved around quite a bit, as he looked for work. He worked as a grocer and a barber in Charleston (the barbering position did not last long). He worked as a fireman in a steel mill in Wheeling. He worked on boats traveling up and down the Kanawha and Ohio rivers. He worked at painting houses in Cincinnati; and, I recently found that he was in business with his brother Charles, as the proprietors of a saloon in Columbus, Ohio in 1903-1903 when his son, Adam, died. This fact may be found in the Columbus City Directory of 1902-1903. Bartending did not last long either as they were gone from the following year's city directory.

Benjamin died in 1924 of pneumonia. His body was shipped to Charleston, West Virginia to be buried at Spring Hill Cemetery. I don't think that my mother ever went to the funeral or burial, both of which were held in Charleston. She never mentioned where he was buried, if she even knew. I tend to think she did not know because when I found his resting place, I also found that he was in an unmarked grave. My mother would never have let that stand, no way! So, I took care of it for her and got him a simple head stone, along with his brother, Burlew, and mother, Virginia, who also were in unmarked graves at Spring Hill.

I have since found his obituary in the Charleston Daily Mail of 09 Aug 1924, page 2:

BEN WHITTAKER Funeral services for Ben Whittaker, who died at the St. Francis Hospital in Cincinnati, were held this afternoon at 4 O'clock at the residence of his mother, Mrs. Virginia Whittaker, 209 Tennessee Avenue. Burial was made in the Spring Hill Cemetery. Mr. Whittaker is survived by his widow, his mother, five children, and five brothers.

I can say, with authority, that two pieces of information given in the above obituary were false. The first fact is that he had six still living children, not five. The second fact is that he was survived by four brothers; William W. Whittaker, John T. Whittaker, Albert T. Whittaker, and Burlew Whittaker, who died himself less than six weeks later. He had a surviving sister, Lena Whittaker Eisele, as well.

Notes for NEVORA "NEVA" PORTER:

THE GRANITE BRICK WALL PORTERS

My maternal Grandmother, Geneva Porter, has turned out to be the greatest brick wall of my life. I never knew her because she died twenty years before I was born. Thank God, I did ask some questions of my mother about her; although, back then, I didn't really know what questions to ask.

Today, more than eighty years after she died, she is still a big question to me. I wish with all my heart that I had known her. I was so upset that I didn't have but one grandparent when I was a kid that I asked my cousins' grandmother, Anna Zimmers, if she would be my Grandma, too. And she was the only Grandma I ever knew.

Where to start with Geneva? Her name. First, my mother was adamant that her real name was "Geneva". Mom said that her nickname was "Neva". This was a name which Benjamin Whittaker, Neva's husband, called her. Most all of her existing documentation lists her as either "Neva Porter" or "Neva Whittaker". Even her grave marker and her death certificate list her first name as "Neva". There is only one place that her name is noted differently. That is on the 1910 US Census of Benwood, Marshall County, West Virginia. Here her name is stated to be "Amelia". I believe this to be a mistake because a) this name appears no where else b) it cannot be another wife because Benjamin and Neva were married in 1890 and I have the marriage record, and c) I have tried to uncover any record of her under the name of Amelia Porter and no one matches her other qualifications such as age, parents, and birth place.

Birth Place is the other sticky wicket. She supposedly was born 04 Jul 1872 "somewhere" in Kentucky to John and Mary Porter. So, somewhere in the big state of Kentucky, with a common last name like Porter, was born my Grandmother, Neva. Try to prove that. Kentucky has had more court house fires than I have seen in any other state, in a myriad of different years, all of which encompass the time my Grandmother Neva was born.

Neither she nor her family show up any- where in the censuses of 1880 in Kentucky. This was the only census where you were going to catch her because by 1890 she had already married my Grandfather, Benjamin Whittaker. I am not even sure of this birth year because of the different ages she has been reported to be in her documentation. I believe it is just the year I am concerned with.....who would forget a birthday like July the 4th? It seems to be off just a year or two at times. So, say we are talking about a birth date of 04 Jul 1871-1873. This was a very bad time for record keeping in Kentucky.

Birth parents were not written in stone either. I tend to hang on to the names John and Mary Porter, though, because this was the information, although still tentative, that her sons gave both, on her death certificate and on her interment record at Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati, Ohio. I also must remember that she had a son named John and a daughter named Mary. I would think that if she had named them after her parents, she may have stated this fact to them or to the other children. For that matter, though, none of the names which she named her children match any names in the Whittaker family. I have tried looking for these names in the Porter families of Kentucky to no avail.

If, however, the sons were wrong about the names of her parents, I do have one candidate which could be her in the 1880 US Census of Riverside, Hamilton County, Ohio. There was one Geneva Porter aged 6 (could have been born in 1873) whose parents were William H. Porter b. Kentucky and America Porter b. Massachusetts, with brothers Decatur, Nevada, and Americus. This census states that the children were born in Ohio, however I know just how messed up the census takers can be on this question.

There was one other interesting census in 1880. The Charleston, Kanawha County, Census for 1880 had a "Nevora" Porter living with her widowed mother, Mary, and 4 black men out on Estill Road in South Charleston. Nevora was the right age, 8 years old, and the mother was the right name; but I couldn't reconcile in my mind the name "Nevora". Also both the daughter and mother plus the child's father were listed as having been born in Virginia/West Virginia. I still kept both of these families at the back of my mind, though I couldn't prove or disprove either one.

When my mother's sister, Ethel Whittaker Bastian, died last year at 96 years of age, on her death certificate it stated that she was born in Green River, Kentucky. I thought I had hit pay dirt; and that this would be the connection I was looking for.....that Neva had gone home to have her baby in 1909. This turned out to be one of the biggest wild goose chases involving Neva yet. It turns out that there is no town called "Green River" in Kentucky. There is just a river named "Green River" in Kentucky. I followed it around on the map of Kentucky and it meanders like a snake across over half the state of Kentucky. So, even if she was born on a boat traveling on the Green River, which is not out of the question because the family had been know to live on boats which my Grandfather worked on, then Ethel could have also been born "anywhere" in Kentucky! The apple does not fall too far from the tree. It was a big let down for this reason.

However, I was soon to find the present hidden within the death certificate from my Aunt Ethel. That was her son, Paul Ervin, whom I did not know where he might be. He was listed right on the death certificate as the supplier of the information, living in Wisconsin. I got his telephone number and immediately called him. I am so happy that at least we have found each other again. The sad thing is, that Paul did not know any more than I did about this puzzle; and, now there is no one left alive to ask.

I have gotten all of the Social Security Applications of my mother's siblings just to see what they had put for the names of their parents.....all state Benjamin Whittaker and Neva Porter. All of these children were born between 1904 and 1912. I have also tracked down all other documents upon which they may have stated where their mother was born. Each of them put something different! The following answers were given: Kentucky, Gallipolis Ohio, West Virginia, and Virginia! I have made it a project to study all of the main Porter families of Kentucky to see if I could place her somewhere within any of them. So far, I have not been able to do so.

I am also now studying the Porter family from the Riverside, Hamilton County, Ohio Census mentioned above. So far, they seem to be rather murky, too. I also checked out all of the answers given for the birthplaces of Neva referenced above with no cigar. I am not giving up on Grandma Neva for anything! However, I think it is at a place, where only the help of Neva herself will suffice. So, I am waiting for that help.

UPDATE - 04 July 2008: It is fitting that I post this update today on Grandma Neva's birthday. I have found Neva and her mother; and further research is underway to uncover the rest of her family and ancestors. This is a very happy day, indeed! It was through the City Directories of Charleston, West Virginia that I finally found out who Neva really was. Since she was listed as a resident of Charleston on her and my Grandfather's marriage record, I decided to try and find her.......and, possibly her mother, who was listed as "present" though un-named on the same record, in the City Directories around the time that they were married. So, I requested, in a letter, copies of all City Directory pages which contained the names of PORTER and WHITTAKER (in all the spelling variations) between the years of 1880 and 1900.

What I received from the State Archives of West Virginia was really pretty pitiful; only 6 directories were copied. In the 1889/1890 City Directory Neva Porter was there, at the age of about 17 years, as a boarder at 110 Clendenin Street with the occupation of "nurse". As I was looking through the other copies, I noticed that one of the other years, 1888, had no pages of Porters. I knew this had to be a mistake because the other 5 directories all had quite a few Porter families in them, both before 1888 and after. I decided to e-maill my good friend, Cristy Dunlap, who lives in Charleston; and, ask her to check up on these City Directories at the Archives for me since I did not trust the State Archives at this point to rectify this situation. Cristy went there and re-copied all of the City Directories that she could find. There were eleven of them......still pretty pitiful for a twenty year time span; but better, none the less.

When I received the package from Cristy, there were indeed Porters in the 1888 Directory. My jaw dropped almost to the floor when I looked at the 1897 Charleston City Directory. There, in all her glory, was "Nevora Whittaker"! Right then and there, I knew that Nevora Porter had really been my Grandmother all along. There was only one big family of Whittakers/Whittekers who had come to Charleston in 1806. They were four brothers from Princeton, Massachusetts and all of their descendants were identifiable as the Whittakers in the City Directories. The only one who had married a woman who even could be Nevora, by any stretch of the imagination, was my Grandfather, Benjamin Whittaker.

But, what of the assertions of my own mother who had said that her mother's real name was "Geneva"? Well, all I can say is this: my own mother did not like her given name, May Ada. After her mother and father died, she re-invented herself as "Jean Whittaker". I, myself, did not like the name (which my mother loved), Dolores, and did the same thing, turning myself into "Dee". I truly think that my mother and I came by this honestly and quite possibly Nevora did not like her name either; and, it was a really odd, uncommon name. I could not find another Nevora in the entire United States. So, I think that it is probable that my Grandmother Neva used her nickname instead, at first.

Now, along comes my mom wanting to know the real name of her mother and asking questions. Neva is usually used as a nickname for Geneva, so I think my Grandmother just told people that was her real name because she probably wished that it was. Now this cut-off branch of my family tree may finally grow, in time; and, out of respect for my Grandmother, I promise never to call her Nevora.

UPDATE: The new brick wall is Nevora's parents. I have not been successful in finding anything at all on her father or mother. The only document showing her mother is still the 1880 Census of Charleston, Kanawha County, West Virginia. I have since searched all marriage records and death records of the area for both of her parents and come up empty. I even checked to see if her mother had remarried since she was a rather young widow. The only small crumb I have found is that I have finally been able to place Neva and Ben in Charleston in the 1901 City Directory. Benjamin is listed there as a "grocer" and the home address as 24 Clendenin Street. I am now trying to find out who else might have lived at that address or next door at the time. I have also paid a researcher in Kentucky to check the birth records in the counties which border on West Virginia for the births of either Nevora or her daughter, Ethel Whittaker. This was not successful either. Since Neva's father would have been the right age to be in the Civil War, I have also checked both the Kentucky and West Virginia records on both sides of the conflict without any luck in identifying him. Right now, I am giving it a periodic rest, in hopes that something new will come to light.

Notes for JOHN T. WHITTAKER:

John T. Whittaker's death certificate shows that he lived at #1 Mary Street in Charleston at the time of his death; and he was a widower. I have not yet discovered any children he may have had. He was a painter by trade. He is buried in Spring Hill Cemetery. A newspaper story published 30 Jan 1889 in the Wheeling Register reported that a John Whittaker, who was convicted of Grand Larceny at the Circuit Court at Charleston, and sentenced to three years in prison had been pardoned by Governor Wilson. The petition was also signed by Judge Guthrie and the prosecuting attorney, Mr. Burdett, as well as others. Another story, published in the Wheeling Register of 06 Jul 1891, reporting on the tragedy of a horrible train wreck on the Kanawha & Michigan railroad near Charleston, West Virginia, in which nine people were killed outright and many others injured, listed among the injured who survived John Whittaker of Elk City and Paulina Whittaker of Elk City.

Notes for PHILENA F. WHITTAKER:

Information has been give by Sylvia Whittaker of Fairview, WV, that Lena married one Fred Isley; however, when she died and her estate was settled, she was designated as "Lena Whittaker, deceased". Also, when she bought the grave in which Burlew was interred at Spring Hill in 1924, she was listed on the deed as "Lena Whittaker". Information that Lena had lived in Ohio was first forthcoming from Probate Records of her mother's death. In fact, in the 1900 Census she was living in Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio. She was listed as having been divorced and having one child born of which one child lived. However, the child does not appear in the census with her.

Lena's name first appears in the Columbus, Ohio City Directory for the year 1887-88 and she is listed as a domestic servant living at 35 Selbach Avenue. She is listed already as Lena Eisele although she had yet to marry George F. Eisele. She is in Polk's Columbus Directory for 1890-91 and is shown as working as a cook and living at 797 South 6th. The last time she is listed as Lena Eisele is in Polk's Columbus Directory for the year 1891-92 without an occupation and living then at 709 East Town. Since she married George F. Eisele around this time, it would be fitting that she did not have an occupation especially since she would have been pregnant with William as well.

Upon finding her Ohio Death Certificate No. 70284, it was found that she died in Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio. The death certificate stated that she was divorced from George Eisele. With this unusual spelling, I probably never would have found her. However, it turns out that her son was named George Eisele and he apparently thought that he was named after his father.  She is shown to have actually been named "Philena" on her death certificate, which is the name she was buried as, "Philena Whittaker", in Spring Hill Cemetery in Charleston, West Virginia. The son, George Eisele, was living in Toledo, Ohio at the time of her death. Her address in Columbus was 90 West Noble Street. She was named in her brother, Burlew Whittaker's, obituary of 1924 as Lena Bernie, living in Columbus Ohio. I believe this to have been a mistake as she does not appear in the City Directories there at the time under that name.

Notes for BURLEW WHITTAKER:

Remembrances of Dolores

Burlew was my Mom's favorite uncle. She mentioned him quite a bit. I think he may have traveled around, because, in order for her to be so familiar with him, He would have had to visit Benjamin, Neva and the kids both in Benwood and Cincinnati.

A warrant was issued for his arrest in 1911 for misdemeanor trespass on a Rail Road Train (Kanawha County Court Case No. 1911-3. There was a complaint of felony larceny brought against him as well in the same year (Kanawha County Court Case No. 1911-11).

Burlew married Delilah Kidd in 1905, when he was 29 years old; and, she was only 15, according to the Marriage Record. However her birth date in 1900 US Census is given as June 1892, which actually would have made her really 13 years old at the time they married. There is no trace of what happened in this marriage. There is no record of any children born to Burlew and Delilah. By the time of the 1910 Census she was back living at home again.

During the World War I Draft, in 1918, Burlew registered; and, showed that he was working in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He put his mother's address, 209 Tennessee Avenue, Charleston, West Virginia as his permanent address, though. His death certificate which was issued in Kanawha County, No. 11009, states that he was a steamboat and iron worker.

The Charleston Mail of 03 Aug 1914 had this interesting little notation in it: "Officers invaded the dusty and rather odorous precincts of Ed Peck's Junk Shop out on Lorell Street Saturday afternoon with the result that Peck, Joby Bibby, James McAnn, William Staats, Alfred Huff, Albert Stalnaker, and Burlew Whittaker were arrested. Huff was fined $10.00. Staats was fined $5.00 for being drunk and $10.00 for resisting an officer; but the charge of petit larceny was dismissed. Peck was fined $5.00 and so was McAnn, while the charge against Whittaker was dismissed."

When Burlew died in 1924, just a few weeks after my Grandfather, Benjamin Whittaker, his brother, the death record stated that he was single. Lena Whittaker, his sister, bought the plot in Spring Hill Cemetery where he is buried. I bought the head stone 81 years later, as well as the one for my Grandfather, Benjamin. Both Burlew and Benjamin died of pneumonia.

Charleston Daily Mail, 17 Sep 1924, Page 11:

BURLEW WHITTAKER Burlew Whittaker, 48 years of age, died at the home of his mother, Mrs. Virginia Whittaker, 209 Tennessee Avenue, last night. He is survived by his mother, three brothers; William, John, and Albert Whittaker, all of Charleston, and one sister Mrs. Lena Bernie of Columbus, Ohio. Funeral services will be held from the home tomorrow afternoon at 3 O'clock. Burial will be made in the Spring Hill Cemetery.

Notes for DELILAH KIDD:

Delilah appears to have been named after her grandmother, Delilah Kidd, who was living with another of her sons, Willie S. Kidd, in the 1900 US Census of Charleston WV. Delilah is bured in Mt. Joy Cemetery on Connell Road in Charleston, Kanawha County, West Virginia. She died at the age of 29 of Tuberculosis. She and Burlew were probably divorced after being married for five years as by the next census after they were married she was back living with her parents; but still using the name Whittaker. However, when she died she was listed as single, as was Burlew.

75. HENRY B. 7 WHITTAKER (LETITIA6 MORRIS, FRANCES5 SEE, MICHAEL4, JOHANN FREDERICK3, JOHANN GEORGE ZEH2 (SEE), JOHANNES1 ZEH)1197 was born 1845 in Charleston, Kanawha, Virgina 1198,1199, and died 31 Jan 1896 in Winfield, Putnam County, West Virginia 1200. He married SARAH ANN KINDER 1201,1202 30 Jun 1869 in Charleston, Kanawha, West Virginia 1203,1204,1205, daughter of HENRY KINDER and MARY WELCH. She was born Abt. 1840 in Clay Township, Gallia, Ohio 1206,1207,1208, and died 26 Oct 1916 in Huntington, West Virginia 1209.

Notes for HENRY B. WHITTAKER:

I could never find any evidence that Henry had fought in the Civil War. This is reinforced in a statement, made by Sarah within her application to reinstate her widow's pension after Henry died, that Henry had never been in the army during the war. At the end of 1871 on the 16th of December Henry B. and Sarah A. Whittaker sold their house and property and transferred the deed to Bushrod Creel. They moved to Winfield in Putnam County, West Virginia, where Henry was a jeweler. I plan to investigate whether or not Henry is buried at the Winfield Cemetery near his wife, who was buried there in 1916.

LAND HOLDINGS:

Henry B. only bought one lot in Kanawha County which was situated on Dickinson Street from William A. Quarrier and his wife in 1874 which was recorded in Deed Book 29 on Page 512. A house and lot, located at the corner of Main and Third Streets in the town of Winfield, Putnam County, West Virginia, was purchased from John Bowyer on 01 Feb 1877, Deed Book 8, Page 190. Only Sarah's name is mentioned in later documents regarding this property as it became a bone of contention in her struggle to regain her widow's pension, as well as in her daughter's fight to be reimbursed for caring for her during the last months of her life. By that time, the property was smaller than it first was, as evidenced by the mention of a lot fronting 50 feet on Main Street which had already been sold to Mrs. Lida Martin.

Notes for SARAH ANN KINDER:

When Sarah A. Kinder married Henry B. Whittaker, she was already a widow at the age of 29. The writing on the Kanawha County Marriage Record of 1869, Page 66, is very hard to read; but looks like her last name when she was married was "Overalls". However, this marriage record provided the names of her parents, Henry and Mary Kinder.

Sarah enjoyed a Civil War Pension on the account of her first husband, James H. Overall; but, it was short lived, as she lost it when she married Henry B. Whitteker. She fought to reclaim it after Henry died; and, was successful. In fact, because of her age, the amount was increased first to $12.00 in 1903; and, then to $20.00 per month only a month before she died in 1916. According to her application to re-open this pension, she was the sole operator of a millinery store, earning only about $20.00 per month at the time. Sarah lived for many years in the house on the corner of Main and Third Streets in Winfield, which was described as "small" in the documents regarding it from her application to reinstate her pension. It was estimated to be worth $450.00. Sarah also states in the pension application that there were no children born of her marriage to James H. Overall.

Sarah and Henry's only child, a daughter, Ada, took care of Sarah in the last years of her life; and, great detail is given in Sarah's Civil War widow's pension file regarding her final illness. Her daughter claimed that she had gone "crazy" and "lost her mind" to such an extent that she had to watch her 24 hours a day, without any relief. She finally died of "blood poisoning" or septicemia at a hospital in Huntington, West Virginia. The government used this fact to say that the time which Ada cared for her occurred in Winfield, before her "last illness"; and, therefore, was not a part of the last illness so was not an allowable reimbursement. They then sited the sale of her house and land for $500.00, taking place on 22 Aug 1916, of which Ada was the only heir, as covering the allowable reimbursement of $175.93 instead of the $1,550.50 that Ada had petitioned for. Sarah had signed the deed for the sale of this property, so must not have been visibly crazy as of yet. Only two months remained before she would die on the day of the sale. It is stated in a letter from H. C. Brown, dated 25 Sep 1916 that Sarah was now 84 years old and so "crazy she could not tell anything" to help in her case to obtain an increase in her pension amount. If her given age were true, which I do not believe it was, then she would have been 13 years older than Henry, who was born in 1845, putting her birth date at 1832. But, it does show that she was noticeably out of her mind by the date of the letter. Sarah's body was transferred back home to Winfield, Putnam County to be buried in the Winfield Cemetery.

LAND HOLDINGS:

Sarah bought two lots in Charleston. The first, on Third Street, was bought in 1869 from B. H. Smith, Deed Book 26, Page 124. The second, was purchased in 1871 from William A. Quarrier and his wife and recorded in Deed Book 29, Page 512.
