Subject: Hi Cousin!

Dear Kari

I have just visited your rootsweb page and your home page and am quite impressed. I call you cousin because you see, we both descend from Daniel Eells (1781-~1844) and Polly Thomas (dates not established in my research). I descend from Maria Eells and David Orson Hickox. I took notice of your establishment of birth places for the last three named children in the family group of Daniel and Polly and have some questions to which I would love to know the answer. I always knew it is important to establish Daniel Eells and Polly in the place in New York to which they emigrated, but had not yet pursued that information. I do have some information on them in Ohio, although not likely as much as you have.

My reason for wanting to establish them in New York is simple. The marriage of Maria Eells to David Orson Hickox had to have taken place in New York, because their eldest child, Malina was born in New York, whereas, my 2 great grandmother Eliza Jane Hickox was born in Ohio as was her brother David Daniel Hickox. That knowledge led me to determine that they migrated into Ohio about 1828 give or take under a year. Thus I found Daniel Eells in Denver Township, Ashtabula, Ohio in 1830 with a number of apparently-married young couples and numerous children under his leadership. I have not had the opportunity to follow up further on that in Ohio but will get to it as I can. I was always interested in determining where they had lived in New York to see if I could find out more regarding David Orson Hickox, or as he is designated in the settlement of estate of Daniel Eells: “Orson Hitchcup”. I was aware that there were some HICKOX families in Cortland County because my 3 great grandfather Nathaniel CALVERT had lived there with his immigrant father John CALVERT before moving on to Mercer County Pennsylvania and in researching in that locale I did see the name Hickox. I always had a question in my mind as to what brought Eliza Jane Hickox together with William Nathaniel Calvert, and feel that if there is a Cortland County connection in this family that could account for their meeting.

I cannot share a lot with you at this time, but will share with you what I know. I would definitely like to know your sources on this family group. Here is an extract from the estate settlement of Daniel Eells that I have in my notes:

The settlement of Daniel EELLS estate says " Polly EELLS, Relick of Daniel EELLS late of Greenwood Township, Crawford county, aforesaid dec'd, presents her petition to the said court, setting forth that your petitioners said husband died late leaving a widow, to wit, your petitioner, with issue of 14 (sic) children (to wit:) Edward, Lewis, Lorin, Daniel, Maria intermarried with Orson Hitchcup (sic), now dec'd and Minerva, intermarried with Otis Wait, and that the said intestate died seized in his demise as of fee or deed in the following lands and tenements, to wit: ----" Note that the petition names 6 children but clearly states issue of 14 children, therefore, at least 8 must have died young, or moved away, and this needs further investigation.

I look forward with great anticipation to your reply

Sincerely

Charlene Calvert Pinkowski
