Went to Vermont.

SOURCE:  Tim Esch, who with others compiled a valuable family history.Thank
you Tim and to all of those who worked with you for thiswonderful body of
family history.   July 2002.

SOURCE:   Marilyn Solari. "In Porter Matteson's "Colvins In America,"he notes
that Rufus-3 "went to Vermont."   While traces of Rufus-3remain scarce, it
appears that he was the father of Rufus-4 who isfirst recorded in Vermont on
25 Dec 1783 when Rufus-4 and wife Diadamaare listed as among the original
members of the Ira Baptist
Rufus-4 Colvin was probably of the line of Rufus-3, Samuel-2, John-1Colvin.
His wife was probably Diadama Collins. Rufus-3 Colvin was bornca 1736 in Rhode
Island. He was left 50 lbs. in the will of hisfather, Samuel-2 Colvin.
Unconfirmed data states that Rufus-3 "went toVermont."

Notes for Russell COLVIN

"Rutland Herald"  [Rutland Co., VT]   April 3, 2004Title: History: Amissed
date with the hangman      Stephen Boorn knew he would diesoon. In fact, he
knew when - Jan. 28, 1820. That was his date withthe hangman.
Everyone in Manchester knew that he and his brother, Jesse, had killedtheir
brother-in-law, Russell Colvin. People had speculated about itfor years, and
now a jury had proved them right. The brothers weresentenced to death, though
the Vermont Legislature had reduced Jesse'ssentence to life.     As his
execution date neared, Stephen swore hehadn't done it.     "I am as innocent
as Jesus Christ!" he told avisiting minister who had encouraged him to
confess. "I don't meanthat I am as guiltless as He was, I know I am a great
sinner, but I amas innocent of killing Colvin as He was."     If he was so
innocent,people wondered, why had he originally confessed?     The
answer,like everything else in the case, is complicated.     The
troublestarted when the Boorns' sister, Sally, married Russell Colvin.
Thedating scene in early 1800s Manchester must have been pretty bleak.Russell
wasn't a great catch. By all accounts, he was a bit deranged,and, even when
coherent, he was not the sharpest ax in the woodshed.Worse yet, people said he
drank a lot.     Still, the Boorns' father,Barney, decided to help Sally and
her difficult husband. They wouldlive on the family homestead, he declared,
while the two brothersfended for themselves. Jealous, the Boorn boys took to
feuding withColvin.     Then, one day in May 1812, Colvin vanished. At
first,people didn't think much about it: He had wandered away a few
timesbefore, though always with his son.     This time his
disappearancestretched into months. After three years, Sally became pregnant
againand people knew it wasn't Colvin's child. The law prevented her
fromcollecting support from whoever the father was if she had becomepregnant
while her husband was alive. Sally needed Colvin dead, atleast in the eyes of
the law, so she finally began a halfheartedeffort to find him.     Stephen
and Jesse told Sally that she couldcollect support from the child's father,
because Colvin was indeeddead. He had gone to hell and was "where potatoes
would not freeze,"Stephen said cryptically.     Colvin had been murdered,
people said,and soon people became suspicious of the Boorn brothers. The
brothersprofessed their innocence. The words about hell and potatoes had
beenjust talk, Stephen said. They had been working with Colvin that day
in1812, Stephen remembered, when Colvin had just walked into the woodsand
vanished. No, he corrected himself, they had actually been workingon different
farms that day. In reality, Stephen then recalled, Colvinhad eaten supper at
home that day, had left the house and never beenseen again.     As Stephen
struggled with the facts, the noose seemedto tighten.     And he was all but
hung when his uncle Amos begantelling people in town that he had been visited
by Colvin's ghost, whohad taken him to the field where he had last been seen
working withhis brothers-in-law. The ghost then led Amos to a cellar hole in
apotato field.     This, people decided, must have been the placewhere
"potatoes would not freeze" and they excavated it at once.Inside, they found
pieces of crockery, a button, a penknife and ajackknife, but no human remains.
Sally identified the items as herhusband's.  A few days later, a fire broke
out in the Boorns' sheepbarn. This must be related to the murder, people
figured. Then a dogunearthed some charred bones in an old tree stump. Three
localphysicians compared the bones to a recently amputated leg and
declaredthem human.     The amateur detectives in town had the case cracked
-the Boorn boys had killed Colvin and buried him in the cellar hole.Sometime
later, they had decided they should move the body to thebarn, where they had
tried to burn it. They had then hidden theremaining pieces in the stump.    
The authorities had all theevidence they needed. Jesse was arrested, and
constables searched forStephen, who had recently moved to New York State.    
Jesse'scellmate was a forger named Silas Merrill, who told authorities
thatJesse had confessed. According to Merrill, Jesse admitted that Stephenhad
bludgeoned Colvin with a club during an argument. While Colvin waslying on the
ground, Barney Boorn had happened by and decided tofinish Colvin off with
Stephen's penknife. Then, Merrill said, theBoorns had disposed of the body
just as townspeople had conjectured.For his information, Merrill won his
release.     Feeling thenoose around his own neck, Jesse confessed, but gave
himself a smallerrole in the deed, perhaps hoping to save his life. Apparently
thinkinghis brother was out of harm's way in New York, Jesse exonerated
hisfather and pinned most of the blame on Stephen.     At about thistime,
Stephen was headed back to Vermont. A Manchester constable hadtracked him down
and Stephen had agreed to return to clear his name.Learning that his brother
had been caught, Jesse recanted.     Thetrial went badly for the Boorns.
Witness after witness testified aboutthe hostility between the brothers and
Colvin, about threats thebrothers had made, and about how the three had been
working togetheron the day in question.     Under the strain, Stephen
confessed. Buthe said Colvin had hit him first, perhaps believing that
themitigating circumstance of self-defense would save his neck.     Itdidn't
work. The jury was not deterred, even after the physiciansdeclared that upon
further review the bones, the key evidence, weredefinitely NOT human.     So
Stephen Boorn sat in his cell, prayingfor a miracle.     As his execution
loomed, a chance encounter in NewYork City changed everything.     Tabor
Chadwick, a traveler from NewJersey, was in the lobby of his New York hotel
when he overheard agroup of men discussing an article from the Evening Post.
The storywas about a strange murder case in Vermont in which the killer
hadbeen caught with the help of a dream.     What really caughtChadwick's
attention, though, was the name of the victim.Chadwick had known a Russell
Colvin, who had been working for severalyears as a hired hand on a farm in
Dover, N.J. Chadwick fired off twoletters, one to Manchester's postmaster, the
other to the Post, eachdescribing the Colvin he knew.     The postmaster did
nothing withthe news, which is strange since he was one of Stephen
Boorn'slawyers.     The Post, however, published Chadwick's letter on Dec.6.
That's where James Whelpley read it. Whelpley, a Manchester nativethen living
in New York, had coincidentally been part of the hotellobby conversation
Chadwick had overhead, and he had known Colvin inVermont. Whelpley went
immediately to the farm in Dover andencountered the farmhand, who had
originally gone by the name RussellColvin but had since changed it.     The
farmhand acted strangely. Hesaid he used to be Colvin, but wasn't anymore, and
that he knewnothing about Manchester. Then, however, he proceeded to
describeminute details about the town.     Whelpley had his man.     But
hisman refused to return to Manchester. Whelpley had to devise anelaborate
plan to dupe Colvin. First he tricked him into visiting NewYork to meet a
young woman, who quickly deserted him. Then, when itwas time to return to New
Jersey, Whelpley told Colvin they had totake a circuitous route because
British ships were threatening thearea, this being in the years after the War
of 1812.     So Whelpleyessentially kidnapped Colvin and escorted him by
stagecoach back toManchester.     They arrived on Dec. 22, a month ahead of
theexecution date. Word of their arrival had preceded them and a crowdgathered
at Black's Tavern, where the stage stopped, to see if itreally was Colvin.
Stephen Boorn was brought before Colvin in legirons. Colvin seemed surprised
to see his brother-in-law and asked whyhe was in chains.     In the most
memorable sentence of his life, thenow-vindicated Stephen said, "Because they
say I murdered you."
" The Times Argus"  [Montpelier-Barre, VT)] October 25, 2005
Title: Historic Vermont murder case captured in 1874 British novelCHICAGO -
As executive director of the Center on Wrongful Convictionsat Northwestern
University's law school, Rob Warden is an expert onmiscarriages of justice. So
it's natural that he would be drawn to thetale of Stephen and Jesse Boorn. The
two young Vermont farmers werefalsely convicted of murdering their
ne-er-do-well brother-in-law, andeven though it happened in 1819, it's
precisely the sort of case thecenter handles.... But the Boorns don't need
exoneration. Stephenescaped the gallows and Jesse was released from life
imprisonment afew months after they were convicted because of the
dramaticreappearance of their so-called victim, Russell Colvin. Colvin
hadn'tbeen dead; he'd merely been in New Jersey.

Circumstances:  The Boorns, ne'er-do-well brothers, were condemned in1819 for
the murder in Manchester of their mentally derangedbrother-in-law, Russell
Colvin.  Colvin's body had not been found, butthe prosecution claimed that the
Boorns killed Colvin out of jealousy.Colvin, along with his wife and children,
had been supported by theBoorns' parents and had stood to inherit the bulk of
the parents'property.  According to the testimony of Lewis Colvin (Russell's
son,who was 10 at the time of the alleged murder), SB accused RC of notpulling
his weight on the farm and of ruining SB's father (BarneyBoorn) financially
because of the cost of support RC & his family.  RCreplied that he was a hard
worker who had made a valuable contributionto the family income.  SB called
him a "damned fool" and a "littleTory."  RC hit SB with a small stick, and SB
then beat RC to deathwith a tree limb.  Lewis then fled to his grandfather's
house -- andRC did not return home.  Leewis asked his uncles where RC was, and
they answered, "one of them, that he had gone to hell, and the otherthat they
had put him where potatoes would not freeze."  Sally Colvin,who had been out
of town at the time, asked her son, Lewis, when shereturned, "where Russell
was; he answered gone to hell."
Public sentiment ran against the brothers in part because theirsister,
Colvin's wife Sally, became pregnant by another man soon afterher husband's
disappearance (indeed, she had two illegitimatedaughters after RC's
disappearance).  That led the jury to suspectthat she had colluded with her
brothers to get rid of her husband.The Boorns, fearing conviction and perhaps
hoping for leniency,confessed.  They soon recanted their testimony and
professed theirinnocence.  But the Boorns were convicted at the next term of
thecounty court and sentenced to hang.  They were spared at the lastmoment
when Colvin (or a convincing impersonator of Colvin)miraculously reappeared. 
The defense claimed he had simply wanderedoff in a fit of amnesia some seven
years before.  Some Vermontersconcluded from this case that the legal system
was too flawed to handdown death sentences.

OBITUARY:  The Agitator - Published 10 April 1900 Osceola, Tioga Co.,PA
Mrs. Ruth Colvin Born April 8, 1808 - Died April 10, 1900
Biographical Sketch of One of the Oldest Residents in Tioga Co.
Ruth, third child of Christopher Colvin and Elizabeth Hiltz, was bornat
Herkimer, N. Y., April 18, 1808. She died at Osceola Pa., April 10,1900. She
therefore lacked eight days of being 92 years old at thetime of her decease.
The Colvin family have been 200 years in America. John Colvin thefounder of
this family settled at Dartmouth, Mass., about the year1700. From Dartmouth he
removed to Providence, R. I., in 1705. Inround numbers the ancestors of Ruth
Colvin lived 100 years thereafterin Rhode Island. Not far from the year 1800
her father removed fromRhode Island to the Mohawk valley in N. Y., and for 100
years hasresided in New York and Pennsylvania. Ruth Colvin was of the
sixthgeneration in decent from John Colvin, the immigrant ancestor.
Elizabeth Hiltz, mother of Ruth Colvin, was a daughter of John Hiltz,a
Palatinate German, whose father settled in the Mohawk Valley in1722.
Ruth Colvin received such education as the primitive schools of theperiod of
her youth afforded. She was educated in the schools in thecommon branches of
the English language, although in her home shespoke with equal facility both
German and English. When she wassixteen years and six months old, she married
her cousin, GaylordGriswold Colvin, and their married life continued over a
period ofalmost fifty nine years. Their marriage took place at Shells
Bush,Herkimer county, N. Y., October 28, 1824, where they set up
theirhousekeeping in a very modest way. For eight years they lived in
fivedifferent places in Herkimer county. In 1832 they came to Alleganycounty,
N. Y., and lived at Independence and Spring Mills in thatcounty until 1848 - a
period of sixteen years. In 1848 they removed toPotter county, Pa., and lived
on three different farms in Binghamtownship until 1872 - a period of
twenty-four years. During six yearsof this period her husband was a
commissioner, and during ten years hewas an associate judge of Potter county
Pa. In 1872 they removed toOsceola Pa., where they purchased a residence known
as the "Gothic",just west of the village. In this home, in 1883, her husband
died,since which time she made her home with her daughter and with her
son,making in all a residence of twenty-eight years in this place.
Mrs. Colvin was the mother of seventeen children. Among these childrenwere
four pairs of twins. Fourteen of her children died at birth or ininfancy, or
early youth, thus leaving but three who grew to manhoodand womanhood. These
survive her, namely: B. F. Colvin of this place,D. C. Colvin of Woodhull, N.
Y., and Mary, wife of C. L. Hoyt ofHorseheads, N.Y.
Mrs. Colvin became converted to the religion of Jesus Christ under
thepreaching of the Rev. Thomas Sheardown at Whitesville, N. Y. She
wasbaptized by immersion by the Rev. V. Chase and became a member of
theBaptist Church in 1837. She remained in connection with thisdenomination of
Christian believers until about seven years ago, whenshe united with the
Methodist Episcopal Church of Osceola. Herreligious experiences were deep and
sincere, but she was quiet andundemonstrative in expressing them.
Mrs. Colvin was fond of society, and when health and strengthpermitted loved
to surround herself with company - especially thecompany of young people. In
this social inclination her husbandjoined, and their home for many years was a
neighborhood resort forboth young and old. Her disposition was very amiable.
She was alwaysinclined to be pleased with whatever was done for her. She
wasunselfish. Her first thought was for others, not for herself. Thisframe of
mind made her charitable and kind and helpful to those abouther. These
characteristics inspired love and after this longpilgrimage of ninety-two
years in this world, her remains were laid torest with feelings of veneration
and chastened sorrow on the part ofher kindred and many friends.
The funeral, in charge of her pastor, the Rev. John Segwald, was heldat the
home of her son B. F. Colvin, where she died, Thursday, April10th, 1900 at 1
