Polley Kimmel Creller


 David Creller  - Unconfirmed

Philip shows  on the NY microfiches files as  being baptized 1742   , in the Church records at the time of burial it was stated he was 76 years old when he died. 

From the information collected as late as  Apr 2003, we know that Peter Creller was born in Red Hook NY. The names of the above children were culled from the records in the register office in Bedford Qc, the known dates from tomb stones in the area. No records of a burial ,nor stones has been found for Philip's wife so it has to be assumed that she passed away before the family arrived in Canada, the fact that Polly Creller had been given the name Kimmel , allows us to assume that her mother may just have beem a Kimmel or ( Cammel ) as that particular family was among those who appear to have emigrated into the St Armand/ Stanbridge area at the same time as the Creller. (The records i have been lead to belive have been transferred to  Quebec City  rather than being kept in the   land records office in Bedford where I first came across them) 

Philip is found listed on the 1795 Oaths of Allegiance  signed as the Loyalists came into Canada   seeking to restart thier life one more  time

In 1801 the land grant records show that Peter was allocated 1200 acres of land in the Stanbridge township.   Lot 2 of concession 6  and lots 22,23,24,25,and 26  in concession 7

In 1801 the land grant records show that Peter was allocated 1200 acres of land in the Stanbridge township.   Lot 2 of concession 6  and lots 22,23,24,25,and 26  in concession 7  .The  allocation of lots in the township of Stanbridge had been begun in 1796 with  a formal request to the then Governor of Lower Canada  to have the lots surveyed . After several years  and much correpondance the Patents for the land lots were granted  (1801) by then several of the inhabitants had managed to clear and improve the principal lot they were expecting to receive legally . Peter  had also bid on lots in the township of Sutton but  for what ever reasons did not floow through on those purchases.


Land records

Rufus inherited lot number 2 , concession 6 in Stanbridge East from his Uncle Peter, whom he kept in a manner suiting to his station until his death  Rufus was obligated to ensure that Peter his brother upheld his end of the bargain as he also had inherited a lot of land from his uncle 

In 1804 Peter Cruller was also listed as owning one half  lot number 127 in the St  Armand Concession

What happened, in fact, is that the 1881 census taker confused Milo's last name. John Hauver was married to Hannah Creller. This couple had no children who lived, and so they adopted Milo (who was the son of Hannah's deceased sister, Mary Creller). They raised Milo, and later, they also took in and raised another teenaged neice, Florence Sawyer (who remained behind when her parents moved to Iowa) (Florence was the daughter of Hannah's other sister, Adaline Creller)

In time Milo and Florence married.

In his old age, John Hauver moved in with Milo and Florence, and at the time of the 1881 census, it was John who answered the door and gave the information. In error, the census taker put Milo's name down as Milo Hauver.

Milo Clow is the son of John Edward Clow and Mary Creller. It is believed that Mary Creller died shortly after the birth of Milo. John Edward died in 1853, when Milo was only 8 years old. John Edward is the son of John Clow Jr. and Catherine Primmerman. John Clow Jr. was the son of Johannes Clow (Clauw) and his wife Bathsheba (Bata) Huyck. Johannes Clow was a Loyalist who settled in Highgate, VT after the American Revolution.
