1654: IMMIGRATION TO AMERICA

The Goodfellow sailed for New England. On 10 May 1654, not knowing the language of the country, PHILIP (JR.) and another young lad, William Downing, were sold for six and twenty pounds in corn merchantable or live cattle at or before the end of October next to Samuel Symonds.

We were brought out of our own Country contrary to our own wills & minds, & sold here unto Mr. Symonds by the master of the Ship, Mr. Dill, but what agreement was made between Mr. Symonds & ye said master, was never acted by our consent or knowledge, yet not withstanding we have endeavored to do him the best service we could these seven complete years. Which is 3 years more than the you used to sell them for at Barbados, when they were stolen in England. And for our service, we have no callings or wages, but meat & clothes. Now 7 years service being so much as the practice of old England, & thought meet in this place, we being both about 21 years of age, we hope this honored courts and jury will seriously consider our conditions.

In the original plan of Delaware, the square now bounded by North, Sandusky, Winter and Franklin Streets was set off for church purposes, and included a cemetery, which was subsequently vacated; a few graves were in Court House Square, then Brier Hill. In 1812, a lot each of Henry Street was used as a burying ground, and the following winter and spring, numbers of soldiers were buried there; many old settlers are buried there without anything to mark their graves. Later when the railroad line passed through Delaware, all vestiges of remains were taken up and removed to a later cemetery, joining the old one on the north. Since the publication of that history in 1880, and within a comparatively few years, more land was needed for the railroad, so all stones and remains were again removed to Oak Grove Cemetery which had been opened in 1850. Those who had friends or relatives to claim and car for their remains were placed in family lots in the new cemetery While those claimed by no one were removed and placed in several long rows in the outer part of Oak Grove Cemetery.
