33. Ruth3 Case (Abraham2, Philip1) was born 8 July 1791 in Hebron, Washington Co., NY.146 She married Robert McCracken before 1832.147

     The Case manuscript states in a handwritten annotation that Ruth Case married John O. Rotch in 1820. No indication of Dr. Case's source for this statement was presented. I have found no other evidence for this marriage and I found no mention of a John O. Rotch in Washington County records searched to date. Her father's probate file, however, does confirm that by 2 July 1832, Ruth's married name was McCracken.

     Ruth appears with Robert McCracken, apparently her husband, in the 1850 federal census of Birdsall, Allegany Co., NY. Living next to them is a Naaman Case, age 31, and his new wife Naomi. Ruth's granddaughter, Mary R. McCracken, is enumerated with this couple as Naaman's niece in 1880. This relationship suggets one of two possibilities: either Naomi is Ruth's daughter who happened to marry an as yet unidentified Case; or Naaman is Ruth's illegitimate son. I have not found Ruth (Case) McCracken in earlier censuses and can give no evidence to support either hypothesis. Ruth was not enumerated with her husband in the 1860 federal census and was probably deceased by 1 June of that year.

Mary Nelson, the daughter of Phineas and Hannah (Lane) Nelson of Nelson's Landing at Fishkill, NY, was born 8 May 1787 in Dutchess Co., NY.193 She died 15 November 1867 in Commerce, Oakland Co., MI.196 She was buried in Commerce Village Cemetery, Commerce, Oakland Co., MI.193
Known children of Samuel3 Ingersoll and Mary Nelson were as follows:
  •     197.  i.   Hannah4 Ingersoll was born 19 February 1809 in Tioga Co., NY.51 She married Anthony Dickinson November 1832.51 She died 27 January 1883 in Carlton, MO.51
  •     198.  ii.   David Ingersoll was born 15 December 1811 in Tioga Co., NY.51 He married Susannah Buckel September 1831.51
  • +  199.  iii.   Francis Ingersoll, born 2 January 1814 NY; married Frances A. Armstrong.
  •     200.  iv.   Lydia Ann Ingersoll was born 18 November 1817.51
  •     201.  v.   Nelson Ingersoll was born 14 February 1820.51
  •     202.  vi.   Mortimer Ingersoll was born 12 September 1822.51
  •     203.  vii.   Byron Ingersoll was born 20 December 1824 in Genesee Co., NY.51
  •     204.  viii.   Solon M. Ingersoll was born 22 June 1827.51 He married Anna Cleveland 1855.51
  •     205.  ix.   Joshua R. Ingersoll was born 6 October 1829.51 He died in Honolulu, Sandwich Islands, where "He had charge of convict Chinamen, and was found murdered."51
  •     206.  x.   Mary Amelia Ingersoll was born 10 March 1832 in Genesee Co., NY.51 She died December 1901 in DeKalb, IL.51

48. Timothy3 Ingersoll (Rachel2 Case, Philip1) was born circa 1794 in Washington Co., NY.197 He married Lydia Sisson circa 1821 in Genesee Co., NY.198 He died 17 June 1874 at the County Home in Washtenaw Co., MI.105

     The family of Cook Sisson is enumerated immediately before Timothy's. Cook is also 30 to 40 years of age, has two males age 5 to 10 and a female age 20 to 30. This supports the identity of a Lydia Sisson as Timothy's wife, but does contradict the 21 Oct 1837 marriage date found in the Ingersoll Genealogy. This date may actually be the result of misplaced punctuation. The line reads, "m. Lydia Sisson, Oct. 21, 1837. Timothy Ingersoll and wife sell land in Bridgewater township, . . ." I don't have this land record, but I suspect it is dated 21 Oct 1837.

     Timothy and Lydia (Sisson) Ingersoll probably married in Genesee Co., NY, where their children were born. The family left New York and removed to what would become Sharon Twp., Washtenaw Co., MI, sometime before the 1840 federal census was taken. They were the parents of three children, a son and daughter born between 1820 and 1825 and a son born between 1825 and 1830.199 The older of the two boys, Peter, is in his father's household in 1850 and 1860. The younger, Louis, married and raised a family in Sharon Twp., MI. These two are named by Avery in the Ingersoll Genealogy, but she fails to mention a daughter. The online database, Descendants of Richard (1608-1684) and Mary (d. 1692) SISSON of Rhode Island, does include this daughter, calling her Louise and giving her a birth date of circa 1827. This date is too late as both the 1830 and 1840 federal censuses place her birth between 1820 and 1825. This daughter may be the mother of the Amanda Adams living with Timothy Ingersoll in 1860 and with Peter in 1870.


Lydia Sisson, the daughter of Phillip and Susannah Sisson, was born 30 January 1803 in Tiverton, Newport Co., RI.200 She died before 1 June 1850 as she does not appear with her husband in that census, possibly in Sharon Twp., Washtenaw Co., MI.
Known children of Timothy3 Ingersoll and Lydia Sisson were as follows:
  •     207.  i.   Peter4 Ingersoll was born circa 1824 in Genesee Co., NY.201

         The birth date of Peter Ingersoll, Timothy's oldest son, varies from as early as 1823 (age 37 in the 1860 federal census)202 to as late as 1826 (age 44 in the 1870 federal census).203 Given the presence of a boy born between 1820 and 1825 in the Timothy Ingersoll household of 1830 and 1840, a pre-1825 date of birth is probably correct. He and his father appear together in the Comstock Hotel in 1850 in St. Clair Co., Michigan, where both men are called sailors.201 The two men reside together in Saginaw Co., Michigan, in 1860, with a young woman, Amanda Adams and her daughter.202 Peter, son of Timothy Ingersoll, is identified as the Peter Ingersoll of Clayton Co., IA, by the presence of this Amanda Adams in his 1870 household.203
  • +  208.  ii.   Lewis Ingersoll, born 19 November 1826 Genesee Co., NY; married Sarah J. Middlebrook.

49. Chestina3 Ingersoll (Rachel2 Case, Philip1) was born circa 1794 in NY.204 She married Caleb Nelson say 1808.51

Caleb Nelson was born circa 1788 in NY.205
Known children of Chestina3 Ingersoll and Caleb Nelson were as follows:
  •     209.  i.   Judson C.4 Nelson was born 3 June 1824 in Danby, Tompkins Co., NY.102 He died 11 July 1895 in Cortland Co., NY.102
  •     210.  ii.   Susan Nelson was born circa 1835 in NY.206
  •     211.  iii.   Luther Nelson was born circa 1837 in NY.206
  •     212.  iv.   Napoleon Nelson was born circa 1841 in NY.206
  •     213.  v.   Jane Nelson was born circa 1843 in NY.206

50. Josephus3 Ingersoll (Rachel2 Case, Philip1) was born 12 June 1799 in Washington Co., NY.207 He married Elizabeth B. Easton 25 January 1824 in NY.208 He died 13 September 1883 in Leon, Cattaraugus Co., NY.209

Elizabeth B. Easton was born circa 1804 in NY.210 She died 1 April 1882.51
     Elizabeth, wife of Josephus Ingersoll, is called Elizabeth B. Easton in Avery's Ingersoll Genealogy. It's interesting that she doesn't postulate that Elizabeth and Sally, wife of Dorus Ingersoll, are sisters. The hypothesis is very likely. John Easton and his family live near Francis Ingersoll in Middlebury, Genesee Co., NY, in 1820. His family includes a girl of Elizabeth's age and possibly the recently wed Sally and Dorus. Known sons include Samuel, Almineas, and Erasmus, all but the latter, born ca. 1822, apparently part of the 1820 John Easton household. Strengthening the supposition that Elizabeth (Easton) Ingersoll was the daughter of John Easton is the presence of Samuel Easton, now insane, in the Josephus Ingersoll household in 1860.
211

  • +  214.  i.   Alzada4 Ingersoll, born circa 1825 NY; married Hiram Remington.

57. Sylvia3 Case (Reuben2, Philip1) was born 18 April 1795 in Hebron, Washington Co., NY.223 She married Russell Palmer, son of Jareb Palmer and Esther Rice, 1 March 1814 in Alba, Bradford Co., PA.224 She died 23 November 1879 in Le Roy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.225 She was buried in LeRoy Cemetery, Le Roy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.226

     Family group sheet A164153 of Lydia Case (Palmer) in the E. E. Case manuscript contains information compiled from letter no. 1535, December 1907, of Dr. S. E. Palmer. Reuben Case's third child was not Lydia, but Sylvia. Either this was an error on the part of Leonard Case or it was a misreading by Erastus Case. The handwritten words "Sylvia" and "Lydia" can be easily confused. This error in relationship may help in the analysis of Erastus Case's manuscript. First, Stephen E. Palmer was the son of Anson and Mary (Barnes) Palmer, grandson of Stephen and Lydia (Case) Palmer. The information he provided on this misassigned group sheet consists of his grandparents' names, the name of his grandfather's second wife, his parents and his father's years of birth and death, and the names of the aunts and uncles he was probably familiar with. Lydia's birth date on this sheet, 18 April 1795, was the only complete date present and was probably added by Erastus Case from the information on the Reuben Case family. A complete analysis of family A164153 of Lydia Case (Palmer) is presented in the discussion of her family.

     The information on Sylvia Case found in the papers of F. Marshall Case is written on a letterhead page dated 26 September 1986. Although this predates The Settler article on the Palmer family written by Gertrude Palmer Kelley,227 the information duplicates that found in the article and may be a result of a conversation with Mrs. Kelley, Sylvia's great-granddaughter. This page gives Sylvia's place and year of birth, her parentage, the date of her marriage to Russel Palmer, date of death, and burial in Leroy Cemetery. It repeats Mrs. Kelley's statement that Experience (Nichols) Case, Sylvia's mother, was a Quaker. The page also includes the name Gertrude Palmer Kelley, her date of birth, and minimal information on her life.

Russell Palmer was born 19 March 1791 in Rutland, Rutland Co., VT.229 He died 6 March 1859 in Le Roy, Bradford Co., PA.226 He was buried in LeRoy Cemetery, Le Roy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.230

         Timothy Russell Palmer enlisted on 5 April 1862, in Shawnee, Shawnee Co., KS, as a private, Company K 2nd Kansas Cavalry.232
         Timothy R. Palmer enlisted as a private in Company K, 2nd Regiment Kansas Cavalry, 5 April 1862 in Shawnee, Kansas, for a three-year term, and he mustered-in the same day at Camp Blair. His name appears on the company muster rolls from this date through that of November-December 1864, with the exception of a missing roll, that dated July-August 1864. In June 1862, he was on daily duty in charge of the extra company horses. He was absent on detached service several times in 1863: escort duty by order of the Regimental Commander since 26 February 1863; messenger since 27 March 1863; escort duty since 28 May 1863; escort duty since 22 October 1863. His detachment was mustered 26 December 1863 at Ft. Smith, Arkansas by Major Weed, by which date he had been promoted to the rank of Wagoner. Palmer was part of a party despatched to Ft. Smith 26 May 1864, by order of Col. Cloud. The November-December 1864 roll reports him "Missing in action at Battle of Cow Creek C.N. [probably Canyon] Nov 1" 1864. Supposed to have been killed by Bushwhackers."

58. Esther3 Case (Reuben2, Philip1) was born 30 January 1800 She was "the first child to see the light in Troy borough" in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.233 She married Milton Hugg, son of William Hugg and Lydia Hunt, 11 October 1818 by Phineas Spaulding, M.G in Danby, Tompkins Co., NY.234 She died 6 November 1878 in Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.235 She was buried in North Spencer Cemetery, North Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.236

     Horace Hugg, Esther's son, provided the information on her family for the Case manuscript's group sheet A164154 in letter no. 1337 dated August 1903. At the time, Horace was 65 years old and his parents had been dead for about 25 years. Some of the dates he provided differ slightly from those found in other records. For example, Horace states that his mother was born 13 January 1800 in Troy, Pennsylvania. Heverly calls her "the first child to see the light in Troy borough", born 30 January 1800. Esther's age at death found on her tombstone yields a birth date of 6 February 1900. Regardless of these slight differences, Horace does seem to provide a complete picture of his mother's family, including spouses and residences for himself and all his siblings.


Milton Hugg was born 17 May 1790 in Canaan, Litchfield Co., CT.237 He died 19 June 1878 in Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.238 He was buried in North Spencer Cemetery, North Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.236
     Milton Hugg enlisted on 7 September 1812, in Spencer, Tioga Co., NY, musician and fifer, Captain Eli Bacon's Company, Col. Mead's Regiment, New York Militia.239 He was discharged from military service on 8 March 1813 Lewiston, NY.240
     It appears that by 1865, Milton Hugg has sold land to his son Horace. Although Milton still appears as head of household, his son is listed as the land owner.241

Known children of Esther3 Case and Milton Hugg were as follows:
  •     250.  i.   Experience4 Hugg was born 18 October 1819.242 She married Philander Wright Rockwell 2 June 1842 marriage performed by Rev. S. E. Shepard in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.243 She died 1 July 1846 in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.242 She was buried in Case Cemetery, Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.

         It appears that by 1865, Milton Hugg has sold land to his son Horace. Although Milton still appears as head of household, his son is listed as the land owner.241
  • +  257.  viii.   Mary Louisa Hugg, born 20 March 1842 Spencer, Tioga Co., NY; married William A. Hulbert.

59. Reuben3 Case (Reuben2, Philip1) was born 30 May 1801 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.246 He married Statira Hugg, daughter of William Hugg and Lydia Hunt, 5 December 1821 in Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.247 He died 7 August 1882 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.222 He was buried in Case Cemetery, Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.248

     The information for family group A164155 of Reuben Case was provided by his daughter, Mary Ann (Case) Banks in letter no. 4058 dated October 1905. At this time, Mary Ann was 74 years old and the only surviving child of Reuben and Statira (Hugg) Case.


Statira Hugg was born 6 March 1802 probably in Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.249 She died 19 December 1895 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.247 She was buried in Case Cemetery, Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.250
     Although the E. E. Case manuscript states that Statira was born in New Canaan, Fairfield Co., Connecticut, all census records place her birth in New York. The Connecticut birth place may come from information on the birthplace of Statira's brother Milton. Even here, it's likely that Case made a mistake as it seems that William Hugg removed to Spencer, New York, from Canaan, Litchfield Co., CT, not New Canaan.

Known children of Reuben3 Case and Statira Hugg were as follows:
  • +  258.  i.   Charlotte Melissa4 Case, born 18 January 1822 Troy, Bradford Co., PA; married John Sims.
  •     259.  ii.   Elihu Burritt Case was born 27 October 1823 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.251 He married Susan Ann Merritt, daughter of James Merritt and Mary Buckhout, 9 November 1848 by Elihu Case, J.P in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.252 He and Susan Ann Merritt were divorced on 9 March 1880 in Cass Co., MI, . "the defendant Susan A Case has been guilty of the several acts of Desertion therein charged."253 He died 13 September 1889 cause of death: cancer of the stomach, age 65 years at the Detroit St in Buchanan, Berrien Co., MI.253 He was buried on 15 September 1889 in Buchanan Cemetery, Buchanan, Berrien Co., MI.254

         Elihu's sister, Mary Ann (Case) Banks, provided only meager information on her brother's family A1641552 in the E. E. Case manuscript. Her letter no. 4058 was dated December 1905, six years after his death in Michigan. Elihu left Pennsylvania by 1879. His pension and court trial show that he was in contact with some of his family in Pennsylvania, but his sister obviously had little information on his life. The document includes his birth date and place, the name of his wife, his residence in Michigan, and a death date which is eight years too early. The middle name "Buttles" does not appear in any other source found to date.

         Elihu Burritt Case enlisted on 1 August 1862, in Troy, Bradford Co., PA, corporal, Company D 132nd Pennsylvania Regiment.253 "I find condition of applicant as follows: muscles and tissue of abdomen on left side protruding four inches. Scrotum enlarged to 3 times its natural size; retention of urine and painful micturition, with frequent desire to micturate. Urine albuminous. Hernia [---].

         Her sister, Mary Ann (Case) Banks, provided the information on Leaphie Ann's family A164155X in the E. E. Case manuscript. Dr. Case appears to have been careless in his data entry and he had difficulty in interpreting his source. First, he states that Leaphie Ann was born in Troy, Bradford County, Connecticut. Her place of death is entered as "Arrington (?)."

     E. E. Case obtained the information for family group A164156 of Timothy Case from his daughter, Mrs. Florence M. Crandall, in letter no. 1094 dated June 1903. Florence was the youngest of the six children listed on this sheet, 52 years old in 1903. Her father had been dead for almost 40 years, her mother for twelve, and only one sibling, older sister Betsey, was still living. Not included among the children are the Malvina Case, born circa 1848, who appears in both the 1850 and 1860 federal censuses, and the Augusta Case and Isabell Case, ages 8 and 3 respectively, who appear in the 1860 federal census enumeration of Timothy's family.


Adelia Cowell was born 15 December 1810 in Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.263 She died 15 September 1891 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA. She was buried in Case Cemetery, Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.
Known children of Timothy3 Case and Adelia Cowell were as follows:
  • +  269.  i.   Ephraim4 Case, born 19 October 1829 Danby, Tompkins Co., NY; married Harriet R. Hebe.

         Florence (Case) Crandall, Rhoda's sister, provided what little information appears on family sheet A1641562 in the E. E. Case manuscript in letter no. 1094 dated June 1903. The page contains Rhoda's birth date and place, her death date, and the name of her husband. There is also a note, "Inquire of William Wentz, Clearfield, Pa. Handwritten annotations add Rhoda's place of death and a hard-to-read name and address, "Mrs. Geo. Andrews Williamsport Pa. 348 Laurel St."

  •     271.  iii.   Alonzo Rufus Case was born 8 February 1836 in NY.265 He died 2 April 1865 cause of death: killed in battle [Muster Out Roll, 31 May 1865, reports, "Mortally wounded April 2nd 1865. Died April 3, 1865."] in Petersburg, VA.266 He was buried in Case Cemetery, Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.222

61. Ephraim3 Case (Reuben2, Philip1) was born 25 April 1808 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.269 He married Mary Bothwell, daughter of James Bothwell and Nancy Smith, 11 October 1835 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.270 He died 21 March 1879 2:00 am in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.80 He was buried in Main Street Cemetery, Canton, Bradford Co., PA.271

     Ephraim's daughter Nancy Helen, Mrs. Denton P. Elliott, provided the information on his family for the E. E. Case manuscript, family group A164157, in letter no. 1534 dated October 1903. Although all birth, marriage, and death dates are entered, her mother's birthplace was left blank and her parents are listed as being "of Washington County, New York (probably)."


Mary Bothwell, daughter of James and Nancy (Smith) Bothwell, was born 3 September 1813 in Granville, Washington Co., NY.272 She died 22 August 1884 in Marion, Marion Co., KS.5
Known children of Ephraim3 Case and Mary Bothwell were as follows:
  • +  278.  i.   Frances Adelia4 Case, born 21 September 1836 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married Milton Hugg Case.
  • +  279.  ii.   Alexander Ephraim Case, born 1 October 1838 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married Mary Margaret Moulton; married Maria H. Wooster.
  • +  280.  iii.   Nancy Helen Case, born 7 January 1842 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married Denton Perry Elliott.
  •     281.  iv.   Mary Lavilla Case was born 5 December 1846 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.273 She married (1) Edward L. Vandyke 1868. She married (2) Stephen Peter Bowen between 2 June 1880 and 18 September 1889 in Marion Co., KS.274 She died 7 November 1900 in Marion, Marion Co., KS.5

         What little information found in the E. E. Case manuscript's family A1641574 of Mary Lavilla Case came from her sister, Mrs. D. P. Elliott, letter no. 1534 dated October 1903, and her brother, Alex. E. Case, letter no. 1667 dated December 1903. As Mary lived in the same area as her siblings, it's likely that they were acquainted with the details included on the page. Handwritten additions appear on the page, but their source is not included by E. E. Case. The sheet is incomplete and contains no information on her first marriage. Her birth and death date and the name of her second husband appear, but the additional information on Stephen Bown is part of the handwritten annotations.
  •     282.  v.   James Milton Case was born 16 July 1849 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.275 He died 11 April 1868 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.276 He was buried in Main Street Cemetery, Canton, Bradford Co., PA.276
  •     283.  vi.   George Willis Case was born 5 April 1855 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.5 He died 15 April 1858 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.5

62. Phillip3 Case (Reuben2, Philip1) was born 25 July 1810 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.277 He married (1) Lydia P. Minton 31 December 1842 in Tompkins Co., NY.5 He married (2) Emma Jane Covert 11 November 1860 in Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.278 He died 14 April 1891 in Yonkers, Westchester Co., NY.5

     Mrs. Philip C. Kisor's letter no. 1476 dated November 1903 provided the information for Philip Case's family, A164158, in the E. E. Case manuscript. She appears to be Philip's daughter Charlotte, b. 1856. Despite the fact that Charlotte was only three years old when her mother died, this sheet includes her mother's maiden name and the names of her maternal grandparents. The identification of Philip Case's first wife differs in all compilations found to date, and this source is no exception. Further study of Tompkins Co., New York, records, especially those relating to the Hinton, Kisor, and Beardsley families is warranted.


Lydia P. Minton, daughter of Richard and Joanna C. (Oakley) Minton, was born 21 September 1822 in Genoa, Cayuga Co., NY.5 She died 23 October 1859 in Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.5
     The E. E. Case manuscript's pages are very thin, like onionskin, probably a carbon copy of the original. Frequently, letters are faded or blurred. I originally read Lydia's surname as "Hinton"; however, close examination suggests that it could be "Minton". Although the possibility that she is really Lydia Hinton is still open, the close connection with the Kisor-Minton family makes that identification more likely.

Known children of Phillip3 Case and Lydia P. Minton were as follows:
  •     284.  i.   Franklin P.4 Case was born 25 October 1843 in Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.5 He died 26 May 1844 in Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.5
  •     285.  ii.   Margaret E. Case was born 3 January 1847 in Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.5 She died 7 April 1859 in Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.5
  •     286.  iii.   Charlotte Ada Case was born 4 September 1856 in Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.279 She married Philip Case Kisor 1 February 1879 in Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.280 She died 16 May 1915 in Brooklyn, Kings Co., NY.281 She was buried in Quick Cemetery, Caroline, Tompkins Co., NY.282

         Charlotte Ada Case provided E. E. Case with information on her own family A1641583, that of her half- brother George, A1641584, as well as that of her father Phillip A164158. Her initial letter no. 1476 was dated November 1903 and dealt with all three families. A followup letter no. 10618 dated November 1915 may have been written by her husband. The annotations following this correspondence provide Charlotte's date of death and her husband's full name and parentage.

Emma Jane Covert, daughter of George Panton and Esther E. (Bassett) Covert, was born 14 March 1837 in Auburn, Cayuga Co., NY.278 She died 7 May 1900 Mrs. Philip Case. After a painful illness of eight months duration Mrs. Philip Case passed away last Monday at her residence, 2113 Madison avenue, New York. Mrs. Case, who was a sister of the late Mrs. A. B. Cornell and also a sister of the present Mrs. Cornell, will be remembered by all her friends in Ithaca with love for her genial and sympathetic nature, and her ever ready heart to help those in sorrow. She was an active worker in the mission work of St. Johns Church. Mrs. Case was a daughter of the late Deacon George [?]anton Covert and Esther Elizabeth Bassett Covert.
      Mrs. Case's remains were brought to Ithaca for interment in her family plot. A service was held in St. John's Episcopal Church in this city at 11 o'clock this morning Rev. S. H. Synnott, officiating and the remains were laid to rest in the family plot in the Ithaca Cemetery.
      The pall bearers were Fred K. [??]rus, Charles Tayleure, Eli Cole and [??]al H. Stamp in New York City, New York Co., NY.283 She was buried on 16 May 1900 in Ithaca Cemetery, Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.283
Known children of Phillip3 Case and Emma Jane Covert were as follows:
  •     287.  i.   George P.4 Case was born 14 March 1862 in Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.284 He married (--?--) Delancey before November 1903 the date of his sister's letter to E. E. Case.5 He died after November 1903 the date his sister replied to E. E. Case's request for information.5

         George's half-sister Charlotte provided the very minimal information in the E. E. Case manuscript, family A1641584, in letter no. 1476 dated November 1903. At the time, George was 43 years old. Only his residence is given and apparently his wife's maiden name are given.

  •     288.  ii.   Mary Ella Case was born 9 June 1871 in Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.5 She died after November 1903 the date of her sister's letter to E. E. Case.5

63. Simeon3 Case (Reuben2, Philip1) was born 3 August 1830 in Danby, Tompkins Co., NY.285 He married Alvina Randall Breese 9 February 1853 marriage performed by Rev. Yelotus Grinnell, Baptist Minister in Horseheads, Chemung Co., NY.286 He died 13 April 1895 in Graham, Benton Co., MN.287 He was buried in Rice, Benton Co., MN.161

     Simeon Case's son, Frank J. Case, provided the information for the Case manuscript's family group sheet A164159 in letter no. 958 dated May 1903. Frank was only 47 years old at the time and had lived in his parents' neighborhood his entire life. Although relationships appear accurate in this source, some dates differ from those found in Simeon's Civil War pension. The birth date can only be approximated by pension information, but the death date, 4 April 1895, differs from that found in the pension by nine days, 13 April. No residence is provided for Frank and the family has not been followed.

     Simeon Case enlisted on 1 October 1861,, as a private, Company E 4th Minnesota Infantry . commanded by Captain E. LeGro.288 Transferred to the Invalid Corps, Co K, 23rd Regt V R C, by reason of chronic diarrhea & loss of right thumb.289 He was discharged from military service on 1 October 1864 Fort Snelling, MN.289

Alvina Randall Breese, the daughter of John and Mary (Moore) Breese, was born 3 February 1833 in Horseheads, Chemung Co., NY.290 She died 15 October 1902 in Spokane, Spokane Co., WA.286
Known children of Simeon3 Case and Alvina Randall Breese were as follows:
  • +  289.  i.   Amelia Ann4 Case, born 23 January 1854 Horseheads, Chemung Co., NY; married William Howard Russell; married David Hamelton Ervine.
  • +  290.  ii.   Frank Jerome Case, born 22 December 1856 Horseheads, Chemung Co., NY; married Helen Mary Cairns.
  • +  291.  iii.   Jennie Alvina Case, born 1 August 1865 Owatonna, Steele Co., MN; married Frank Breckenridge Bailey.

64. Leonard Franklin3 Case (Reuben2, Philip1) was born 1 February 1833 in Danby, Tompkins Co., NY.291 He married (1) Mary Hannah Morehouse 1 May 1860 in Owatonna, Steele Co., MN.292 He married (2) Delight Boyce 2 March 1891 in Webster, Day Co., SD.293 He died 9 April 1932 in Los Angeles, Los Angeles Co., CA.294

     Leonard Franklin Case provided the information for his own family group sheet A16415X in the E. E. Case manuscript. He wrote at least two letters to Dr. Case, no. 931 dated July 1903 and no. 9363 dated March 1915. If one assumes Dr. Case was accurate in copying this information, it should be reliable. However, there are a few minor discrepancies and Leonard Case was quite elderly at the time the letters were written, age 82 in 1915.

     Despite his presence in the 1880 federal census enumeration of Codington Co., Dakota Territory, and his 1891 marriage in Day Co., South Dakota, Leonard Case states that he resided in Owatonna, Minnesota, until 1888; then in Minneapolis, Minnesota, until 1905; and finally in Los Angeles, California. His residence, probably at the time of his 1915 letter to E. E. Case, was 238 Newland St. in Los Angeles.

Mary Hannah Morehouse, the daughter of Nelson and Sarah (Johnson) Morehouse, was born 2 July 1837 in Warren, Trumbull Co., OH.295 She died 3 June 1880 in Owatonna, Steele Co., MN.5
Known children of Leonard Franklin3 Case and Mary Hannah Morehouse were as follows:
  •     292.  i.   Levi4 Case was born 7 July 1866 in Owatonna, Steele Co., MN.296 He died 9 August 1872 in Owatonna, Steele Co., MN.5
  •     293.  ii.   Florus Case was born circa 1868 in MN probably in Owatonna, Steele Co.297 He died August 1869 at the 2nd ward in Owatonna, Steele Co., MN.297

Delight Boyce was born 5 May 1838 the daughter of Stephen McCabe and Delight (Booth) Boyce in Ontario, Canada.293 She died 5 March 1918 in Los Angeles Co., CA.294
There were no known children of Leonard Franklin3 Case and Delight Boyce.

65. Mary Jane3 Case (Reuben2, Philip1) was born 16 July 1835 in Danby, Tompkins Co., NY.5 She married (1) Daniel Shaw 4 July 1853 in Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.5 She married (2) Austin T. Peck 29 August 1865.5 She died after October 1903 the date of her letter to Erastus Case, possibly in Minneapolis, Hennepin Co., MN.5

     Like her brothers, Leonard and Merritt, Mary Jane Case provided the information on her own family, A16415XI in the Case manuscript, in letter no. 1098 dated October 1903. Although the information from Mary Jane may have been accurate, the resulting group sheet suffers from Dr. Case's transcription errors. For example, he records that Mary Jane's second marriage took place in Faribault, Rice County, Michigan, whereas Faribault is located in Minnesota.


Daniel Shaw, son of Enoch and Catherine (Conklin) Shaw, was born 16 May 1829 in Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.298 He died 7 November 1864 in Owatonna, Steele Co., MN.5
Known children of Mary Jane3 Case and Daniel Shaw were as follows:
  •     294.  i.   Albert P.4 Shaw was born 16 July 1857 in MN.298 He died January 1865 probably in Owatonna, Steele Co., MN.5
  •     295.  ii.   Emma Adelia Shaw was born 18 November 1859 in MN.298 She married Samuel Roy Ellsworth say 1879.5 She died after October 1903 the date of her mother's letter to E. E. Case.5
  •     296.  iii.   Wilbur G. Shaw was born 26 June 1862 probably in Owatonna, Steele Co., MN.5 He married Estella Davis say 1881.5 He is probably the Wilbur George Shaw who died 30 March 1951 in Meeker Co., MN.299

Austin T. Peck was born circa 1820 son of Edmund and Adria Peck in NY.300 He died in Pasadena, Los Angeles Co., CA.5
     Austin Peck married (1) Marietta Verzene, possibly in Valparaiso, Porter Co., IN, where his parents resided. He was a carriage maker and resided in Minnesota, Texas, Kansas, and California.

There were no known children of Mary Jane3 Case and Austin T. Peck.

67. Merritt Birdsell3 Case (Reuben2, Philip1) was born 15 March 1839 in Danby, Tompkins Co., NY.301 He married Chloe Ann Carlton 24 November 1867 ceremony performed by Edmund Gale in Faribault, Rice Co., MN.302 He died 6 May 1928 in Los Angeles, Los Angeles Co., CA.303 He was buried on 9 May 1928 in Forest Lawn Cemetery, Los Angeles, Los Angeles Co., CA.304

     Merritt Case provided the information on his own family to E. E. Case in letter no. 972 dated May 1903. His family sheet A16415XIII was updated by an apparently unnumbered letter dated December 1915. Merritt's information corresponds to that found in his Civil War pension. Unfortunately, he failed to enter his wife's birth date. Merritt's information, probably reliable, does not agree with the birth date provided by his brother Leonard for their father's family information. That date, 15 August 1841, does not fit the household shown by the 1840 U.S. census enumeration which includes a male under age 5. Again assuming Merritt knew his own birthday, Leonard's information on the birth date of his sister Susan, 6 June 1839, must be incorrect.

     Merritt Birdsell Case enlisted on 17 May 1861, in St. Paul, Ramsey Co., MN, as a private in Captain McKune's company, Company G 1st Minnesota Volunteers.305 Injured: "received a gunshot wound of right heel the ball cut out a portion of the heel and lodged under the ankle joint where it now remains and has ever since disabled him from performing manual labor."303 He was discharged from military service on 22 December 1863 Washington, DC.303
     Merritt Birdsell Case enlisted on 22 January 1864,, as a 2nd Lieutenant, (--?--) 23rd Regiment U.S.C.T.305 Taken prisoner of war and confined at Camp Asylum, Columbia, SC.303 Paroled.303 Granted leave of absence.303 He was discharged from military service on 29 December 1865 Washington, DC.305 Under an act approved 3 June 1884, his military record was amended to show him mustered in as 1st Lieutenant, 23rd Regiment, U.S.C.T., to date 9 Aug 1864 on 3 June 1884.303

Chloe Ann Carlton was born circa 1849 in WI.306 She, daughter of Dexter and Caroline (Lord) Carlton, was born 20 January 1849 in Andover, VT.307 She died 16 February 1938 in CA.294
Known children of Merritt Birdsell3 Case and Chloe Ann Carlton were as follows:

  • +  302.  vi.   Leslie Dwight Case, born 19 December 1878 Forest Prairie, Meeker Co., MN; married Josephine Granger.
  •     303.  vii.   Floyd Treadway Case was born 1 January 1881 in Forest Prairie, Meeker Co., MN.309 He died 26 September 1987 in Orange Co., CA.294
  •     304.  viii.   Leroy Frank Case was born 25 March 1883 in Morrillsville, Knox Co., NE.309 He died 19 February 1886 in Knox Co., NE.5

69. Moses3 Case (Aaron2, Philip1) was born 1790 in Granville, Washington Co., NY.310 He married Rachel Purdy circa 1810.311 He died before 7 February 1864 in Byron, Ogle Co., IL.312

     Erastus Case obtained his information for the Moses Case family from three sources: Mrs. Clara Andrews, letter no. 4404 dated March 1906; Mrs. Hattie L. Crowe, letter no. 6216 dated Sep 1907; and Mrs. Nancy Olds, letter no. 4841 dated Jan 1908. All three are granddaughters of Moses Case. Hattie L. (Case) Crowe was the youngest child of Loyal Luther Case and was born in 1861. Clara (Trumbull) Andrews, born in 1842, was the daughter of Abigail (Case) Trumbull. Nancy (Fulmer) Olds was the daughter of Mercia (Case) (Millard) Fulmer and was born in 1867. Of the three, only Clara would have known her grandparents. Her grandmother, in fact, apparently lived with the Trumbull family for a time.313 Nancy's mother, Mercia, kept house for Moses after her first husband's death in 1855. Nancy, Mercia's only daughter may have inherited family records. Hattie was only eighteen months old when her father, Loyal Case, died in 1862. Of the three granddaughters, her information would be the most suspect. Family group sheet A164132 of Moses Case contains many blanks and several "probablys". Typed birthdate entries appear for children Loyal, Abigail, and Mercia. Handwritten dates appear for Mary Ann and Diana, implying that information was not obtained from the sources shown on the sheet. No birth or death information is shown for Moses, nor is his marriage date entered. His wife's name and year and place of death are entered. The family group sheet also states that Moses resided in Troy, Pennsylvania, until 1838; after which, he resided in Byron, Ogle Co., Illinois, where he was the County Sheriff.5


Rachel Purdy was born 1788 in Rutland, Rutland Co., VT.314 She died 1877 in Aurora, Kane Co., IL.5

73. Elizabeth "Betsey"3 Case (Aaron2, Philip1) was born 30 December 1797 in Granville, Washington Co., NY.325 She married Ansel Williams, son of Caleb Williams and Abigail Andrus, 4 October 1814 in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.326 She died 9 December 1879 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.87 She was buried in Glenwood Cemetery, Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.67

     The Case manuscript contains no family group sheet for Betsey Case, wife of Ansel Williams. In fact, if the manuscript were to be believed, Betsey had no living descendants in 1903 when Simeon U. Case provided the information for the Aaron Case family.5 Although all Betsey's children had died by this time, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were known to be living in Bradford County and in Wisconsin and Illinois.


Ansel Williams was born 20 July 1789 in MA.327 He died 5 May 1859 in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.328 He was buried in Glenwood Cemetery, Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.67
     Ansel Williams consigned about 60 acres of his land in Troy township to his son Oliver in 1853. In exchange for this property, Oliver agreed to care for his parents and for his uncle, Philip Case, for the rest of their natural lives. The agreement is interesting and quite specific.329

Known children of Elizabeth "Betsey"3 Case and Ansel Williams were as follows:
  • +  328.  i.   Julia Ann4 Williams, born 30 July 1815 Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA; married Edwin C. Williams.

74. Lucinda3 Case (Aaron2, Philip1) was born 8 December 1799 in Hebron, Washington Co., NY.334 She married Elon Cowles 1821 in Tioga Co., NY.335 She died 2 February 1894 in Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.336 She was buried in North Spencer Cemetery, North Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.337

     Lucinda (Case) Cowles's death record is one of only two sources found to date which give her mother's maiden name. This death entry, however, lists her mother as Marian Olmstead. The parents' names are corrected entries with the first entries being erased. It is possible that the first entries were simply miscopied, but the first names cannot be read.


Elon Cowles was born 4 September 1794 in Canaan, Litchfield Co., CT.338 He died 11 December 1872 in North Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.339 He was buried in North Spencer Cemetery, North Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.236
Known children of Lucinda3 Case and Elon Cowles were as follows:

  •     340.  v.   Elon Cowles was born 1831 in NY.343 He married Mary Ann Brown say 1855.344 He died 1865 in Granville, Milwaukee Co., WI.345 He was buried in Wauwatosa Cemetery, Wauwatosa, Milwaukee Co., WI.345
  • +  341.  vi.   Elizabeth Cowles, born 1835 Spencer, Tioga Co., NY; married Philo Kelsey.
  •     342.  vii.   Charlotte Cowles was born circa 1836 in Tioga Co., NY.346

         Lucinda (Case) Cowles was "the mother of ten children, only four of whom survived her" at her death in 1894. Evidence that one of these children was a daughter named Charlotte appeared in several letters written by relatives in the midwest home to Lucinda's sister, Betsey (Case) Williams in Troy, Pennsylvania. The New York state census entry, although it does not place her with the family of Lucinda and Elon, does confirm the existence of a Charlotte Cowles and gives an approximate birth year of 1836.
  •     343.  viii.   Isaac Cowles was born 1836 in Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.236 He died 19 September 1838 in Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.236 He was buried in North Spencer Cemetery, North Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.236
  •     344.  ix.   Harvey Cowles was born 1841 in Spencer, Tioga Co., NY.347 He died after 14 August 1902 the date on which he is named as a surviving brother of Jason Cowles.77

75. Martha "Patty"3 Case (Aaron2, Philip1) was born 1804 (possibly 11 April 1804) in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.348 She married Simeon F. Utter say 1822 probably in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA. She is possibly the Martha Utter who died 24 March 1891 in Sumner, Trempealeau Co., WI.349

     Good research requires us to examine all evidence, and to reach reasonable conclusions based on that evidence. Some of the information published on Martha, the daughter of Aaron Case, show that many researchers rely too heavily on secondary sources. When conflicts or questions arise, they make assumptions, but do not test those assumptions with new, more reliable evidence. One of the heirs of Aaron Case, as named on the 1829 deed of release, is Martha, wife of Simeon F. Utter.74 Martha Case, however, does not appear in the Case manuscript in the family of Aaron Case. Both her father's group sheet A16413 and her own, A164137, call the wife of Simeon Utter "Patty".5 An annotation written by Blanche (Bidlack) Lawton, Aaron's great-great granddaughter, also mentions this Patty Case: "I knew and remember and visited (3) three daughters of Aaron Case, Sisters of my Great-Grandmother Miriam Case Vorhis - Aunt Lucinda, Aunt Patty, Aunt Unice."17 Given what appears to be conflicting evidence, some researchers concluded that Aaron's children included both a Martha and a Patty.350 Rather than make an assumption, a search for new evidence would resolve the conflict. First, original documents covering the period 1829 to 1880 call the wife of Simeon Utter, Martha.351 Her age and birthplace are consistent in each census, and the 1880 census entry also identifies her as the sister of Eunice (Case) Gifford.352 Early census enumerations of the Aaron Case household confirm the presence of only five daughters in his household, and these five are identified in two Bradford County deeds of release as Miriam, Lucinda, Elizabeth, Martha, and Eunice.74 There is no room for an additional daughter named Patty. Next, consider the fact that each bit of evidence calling this daughter Patty originated in the family: a memoir written by a family member and group sheets compiled from family letters. Perhaps Martha Case was known as Patty within the family. A check on nicknames will show that Patty is a common nickname for Martha. Now, researchers should quickly conclude that Martha Case and Patty Case are identical.

     Erastus Ely Case compiled the family group sheet of Patty Case, no. A164137, from two sources: letter no. 4841 from Mrs. Nancy Olds, dated January 1908, and letter no. 9360 from Clarence E. Utter, dated April 1916. Nancy (Fulmer) Olds, born 1867, was Martha's great-niece, granddaughter of Martha's brother Moses. Nancy was born in Wisconsin and it is likely that she was personally acquainted with her great-aunt. Clarence E. Utter was probably Simeon Utter's nephew, son of his brother Joseph. This Clarence Utter was born in Wisconsin in 1860, and so would have known his aunt and uncle. The Case manuscript states that Patty was born about 1803 in Mansfield, Pennsylvania.5 The federal census enumerations, 1850 through 1880, all show Martha born in Pennsylvania about 1804. As her family, however, resided in Troy township, Bradford County, at that time, it is probable that Martha was born in Troy, not in Mansfield. Perhaps Martha's young relatives simply knew that she and her husband moved to Wisconsin from Mansfield, Pennsylvania. They equated her earlier residence with her birthplace. The group sheet states that Martha married Simeon Utter in 1820, also in Mansfield. The Aaron Case census enumeration of 1820 includes a young woman Martha's age in the household.75 As she was only sixteen at the time and Simeon only twenty, it is more likely that the couple married a few years later, perhaps about 1822, and in Bradford County, not in Tioga County.

     The Case manuscript states that Patty (Case) Utter died about 1885 in Black River Falls, Jackson County, Wisconsin;5 but the Wisconsin vital records index provided another possibility. There is a Martha Utter, wife of Simon Utter, who died 24 March 1891 in Sumner township, in neighboring Trempealeau County, Wisconsin.353 She was buried in Osseo Cemetery and was born 11 April 1804, a second correlation with Martha (Case) Utter. Martha had close relatives living in Osseo: her niece Abigail (Williams) Linderman and her family. Perhaps Martha returned to Wisconsin to live near the Linderman family and her Utter in-laws after the death of her sister Eunice in 1890. This is a likely scenario, but the death certificate does present some conflicting evidence: Martha's father is called Moses Rose. Even this could be explained. Martha had no living children and the remains of her immediate family resided in New York and Pennsylvania, so the informant on the death certificate might not have known her ancestry well. Her brother Moses Case had also lived in the midwest, in Illinois. It was his granddaughter, Nancy (Fulmer) Olds, who provided the Patty Case information in the Case manuscript. Perhaps father Aaron was confused with brother Moses. As state death certificates were transcriptions of county or town records, "Rose" could be a misreading of "Case". An obituary or examination of original county records may confirm or deny this identity.


Simeon F. Utter was born 31 May 1800 son of Joseph and Betsey (Russell) Utter in MA.354 He died 20 January 1874 in Utter's Corner, Walworth Co., WI.5
     Although the Case manuscript gives Simeon's birthplace as Pike Township in Bradford County, Pennsylvania, census data consistently states that he was born in Massachusetts in 1800.354 Simeon was probably quite young when his family left Massachusetts and moved to Pennsylvania. His father, Joseph Utter, was among the early settlers of Pike Township and appears as one of the taxpayers of the township on the 1812 assessment rolls.355 If the Case manuscript is correct, in 1820 he married a sixteen-year-old Martha Case when he was only twenty years old. However, Martha was apparently still part of her father's household in 1820,75 and it is more likely that the couple married a few years later, about 1822. They were probably married in or near their homes in Troy or Pike township, Bradford County, not in Tioga County as the Case manuscript alleges. Simeon's first appearance as the head of household in the federal census in 1830, where he is listed in Troy Township, enumerated next to the household of Joseph Wills. His household includes a young boy five to ten years of age, a boy age ten to fifteen, Simeon listed as age thirty to forty, a young woman age fifteen to twenty, and a woman age twenty to thirty, probably his wife Martha, then 26 years old.93

     Sometime between the 1830 census and September 1836, Simeon and Martha moved from Troy to Sullivan County, Pennsylvania. They resided in Sullivan County when Simeon bought his first piece of land in Tioga County, a fifty perch lot in Richmond Township, to which the couple immediately removed.356 In October 1837, Simeon purchased a second lot, lot number eleven in the village of Mansfield.356 Here he farmed and worked as a wagonmaker. The Utter household in Mansfield always housed some young people and the childless couple may have apprenticed many youngsters, one of them Philip Williams, Martha's nephew.357

     In 1852, Simeon Utter was elected Justice of the Peace for Richmond township and he posted a bond with Albert Sherwood in the amount of $1000 for faithful performance of his duties.356 This term of service began 9 March 1852 and lasted for a period of five years. His oath is also recorded in the Tioga County deed book:
I Simeon F. Utter, do affirm that I will support the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and that I will perform the duties of the office of Justice of the Peace in and for the township of Richmond in the County of Tioga, with fidelity to the best of my judgment and abilities and so I affirm.356
.

     In 1867, Simeon and Martha sold their land in Mansfield to Martha's nephew, Philip Williams. The deed, dated 22 February 1867, shows that the Utters had left Pennsylvania and joined Simeon's siblings in Wisconsin. They are called "of the town of Whitewater, County of Walworth and State of Wisconsin".356 Simeon died in Utter's Corner, Walworth County, Wisconsin, in 1874.5 His burial place is unknown by this author.

Known children of Martha "Patty"3 Case and Simeon F. Utter are:

76. Eunice3 Case (Aaron2, Philip1) was born 7 November 1805 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.358 She married William Gifford, son of Benjamin Gifford and Mary Tilton, 1826 in Columbia, Bradford Co., PA, marriage performed by Charles Taylor, Esq.359 She died 9 April 1890 in Richmond Twp., Tioga Co., PA.360 She was buried in Prospect Cemetery, Mansfield, Tioga Co., PA.333
Eunice (Case) Gifford,  photograph in possession of Jeanne Smith.
     Eunice was the youngest daughter of Aaron and Abigail Case. All evidence supports the 7 November 1805 birthdate found on her tombstone with one exception: an affidavit dated 30 July 1863 in her application for mother's pension lists her age as 56 years giving a birth date between 31 July 1806 and 30 July 1807.361 She was less than sixteen years of age when her father's death occurred. Although close families were probably the norm, the Case siblings maintained especially close ties throughout their lives. Perhaps the early death of their father contributed to this strong extended family.

     Eunice was roughly 21 years of age when she married William Gifford. His untimely death in 1849 left the widow with seven children ranging from two years to twenty years of age. Her extended family came to her rescue. She appears to have left Seneca County, New York, and returned to Pennsylvania. The 1850 U.S. census enumeration of Richmond Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, shows Eunice living in a household with son Benjamin, age 21, listed as head, Julia A., age 19, and Hiram, age 3.357 The remaining children appear to have been scattered among the relatives. William was found in the household of James L. Linderman, listed as Bradford Gifford, age 12.90 Linderman's wife Abigail was Eunice's niece, daughter of her sister Elizabeth and Ansel Williams. Stephen Gifford, age 7, was found in the household of Oliver Williams,90 Eunice's nephew. Daughters Mary and Matilda have not been found in the 1850 census enumerations of Eunice's many relatives. It is possible that they went to their father's relatives after his death.

     The 1860 U.S. census indicates changes in Eunice's household. Her occupation is listed as "weaving." She owns no real estate, but has $200 in personal property. Daughter Mary, age 24, now resides with her and is listed as a "tailor." Son Bradford, age 21, is a farm laborer and son Hiram H., age 13, is a school boy.362 Her older children, Benjamin and Julia, were married with their own families; son Stephen still resides with the Oliver Williams household; daughter Matilda is still unaccounted for in this census year.

     The Civil War took a large toll on Eunice Gifford's family. All four sons enlisted and served during the conflict. Benjamin, William Bradford and Stephen enlisted in the same company, Company F of the 1st New York Light Artillery, in the fall of 1861. Her youngest son Hiram enlisted in June 1863 in Company B, 26th Pennsylvania Infantry Volunteers, at the age of 16. William succumbed to typhoid fever in 1862 and both Benjamin and Stephen received disability discharges due to phthisis.

     The death of William Bradford Gifford removed a significant source of income from Eunice's household. Nephew Philip Williams states in an affidavit dated 28 October 1863: "Wm. B. Gifford worked at day labor for the support of his mother Eunice Gifford & I, Philip Williams, further certify that I acted as agent for the said Eunice Gifford & hired out her said son Wm. B. Gifford & received his wages and applied the same to her support he also paid her house rent up to the time of his enlistment."361 Eunice applied for a mother's pension and received the sum of $8 per month commencing 19 May 1862, the date of her son's death.

     The Eunice Gifford household shown in the 1870 U.S. census of Mansfield Boro includes Eunice, age 64, son Hiram, age 25, a laborer with $300 in personal property, his wife Sarah, age 21, and their infant son William who was born in March of that year. Eunice is no longer listed as a weaver and now owns real estate valued at $800.363 A deed dated 9 December 1864 between Robert J. Brown and wife Harriet M. and Eunice Gifford shows that Eunice had purchased part of Lot no. 103, three-quarter acre in size, in Mansfield Boro for the sum of $275.356 This lot is shown on an undated map of Mansfield Boro as being in the east part of Mansfield south of Cory Creek. The lot is labelled as belonging to a "J. Gifford."364

     By 1880, all of Eunice's children are in households of their own. Sons Benjamin and Hiram reside in Michigan, daughter Mary lives in New York, sons William and Stephen are deceased, daughter Matilda lives in neighboring Sullivan Township, and daughter Julia resides near her mother in Richmond Township. However, Eunice is not alone in her home. Residing with her is widowed sister Martha Utter, age 76.352

     Eunice (Case) Gifford died at the home of her daughter and son-in-law Julia and Plinn Davis in Richmond Township at 1:40 p.m., Wednesday, 9 April 1890.92 The cause of death was a "paralytic stroke."365 She was buried in Prospect Cemetery next to granddaughter Fannie (Davis) Harris. This lot is marked by a large four-sided stone probably added long after Eunice's death. Her inscription reads "Eunice Gifford// born// Nov. 7, 1805// died// Apr. 10 [sic], 1890." A small stone marker is labelled simply "Grandma."333

     Eunice (Case) Gifford was widowed at the age of 44, still relatively young. She would remain a widow for the rest of her life, almost 41 years. With the help of her extended family, she raised her seven children, outliving three of them. She was survived by two sisters, four of her seven children, thirteen of her nineteen grandchildren, and seven of eight great-grandchildren. In the 41 years of her widowhood, her house was never empty.

William Gifford was born say 1802 possibly in Farmerville, Seneca Co., NY.366 He died 31 May 1849 in Ovid, Seneca Co., NY.361
     The life of shoemaker5 William Gifford was relatively short and he left few records behind him. He appears as head of household in only two federal census enumerations: the 1830 U.S. census enumeration of Bradford County, Pennsylvania,93 and the 1840 U.S. census enumeration of Seneca County, New York.367 In the latter, William is probably the male age 30-40 years, placing his date of birth between 1800 and 1810. The 1830 census enumeration includes two male candidates for William Gifford: a male age 20-30 years (born between 1800 and 1810) and a male age 30-40 years (born between 1790 and 1800). This census evidence, coupled with the date of his marriage, would place his date of birth sometime between 1800 and 1805. The only evidence found to date for his parentage is the March 1908 letter from his daughter Mary to Erastus Ely Case. She states that her father was the son of Benjamin Gifford and Mary Tilton,5 and that he was born in Farmerville, New York. Benjamin and Mary (Tilton) Gifford were natives of New Jersey, who had migrated to Seneca County, New York, in 1806. Therefore, despite the fact that his children appear to accept their father's birthplace as New York,368 it is likely that William Gifford was born in Monmouth Co., New Jersey, and came to New York as a very young child.

     There was quite a bit of movement between New York's southern tier counties and the northern tier counties of Pennsylvania.369 When and why William Gifford moved to the Bradford County, Pennsylvania, area is not known at this time. However, by 1826, he had met, courted and married Eunice Case of Troy Township, in a marriage witnessed by her brother Abraham and his wife Sarah.361

     William Gifford first appears in Bradford County records in a release dated 24 November 1829.74 This release marks William as the husband of Eunice Case, one of the heirs of Aaron Case. On 6 March 1833, the same day this release was recorded, William Gifford "of Troy Township, Bradford County and State of Pa.," bought land from his brother-in-law Aaron Case for the sum of $45.

. . . all that certain tract, piece or parcel of Land lying and being in the Township of Troy, Bradford County & State of Pa. and bounded as follows. viz. Beginning in the centre of the County road leading from Williamsport to Newtown adjoining James Hickock. Thence South forty two degrees East eighteen perches to a post standing on the South Bank of the Creek. Thence North Fifty seven degrees East fourteen perches and four tenths to a post. Thence North Twenty six degrees West nineteen perches to a post in the centre of said road. Thence South Fifty three degrees West Nineteen perches and five tenths along said road to the place of Beginning, Containing one acre and one hundred and fifty four perches of land. . . It being part of a Lot of Land granted from the Commonwealth of Pa. to Henry Drinker the Elder of the City of Philadelphia and from the said Henry Drinker to Aaron Case of Bradford County State of Pa. decd. and from Aaron Case by will to widow & heirs and from widow & heirs to Aaron Case & from Aaron Case to William Gifford.74
William and wife Eunice sell this same land for the sum of $100 to John Smith, also of Troy Township, in a deed dated 12 July 1833.74 Both deeds were recorded 2 April 1836. These deeds mark William Gifford's last appearance in Bradford County records.

     William Gifford's household in 1830 includes himself, probably the male age 20-30; a female age 20-30, probably wife Eunice born in 1805; a boy less than 5 years of age, probably son Benjamin born in 1829; and an unknown male age 30-40.93 Although this male may be a relative of William's or a farm laborer, it is quite likely that this is Eunice's older brother Philip who was born in 1792. He is currently unaccounted for in this census. Sometime between 1833 and daughter Mary's birth in 1836, the William Gifford family removed to Seneca County, New York. The household is found in the 1840 U.S. census enumeration of Covert Township in Seneca County.367 All members of the family at the time appear to be accounted for in this enumeration: one male under 5 [William Bradford b. 1838], one male 10-15 [Benjamin S. b. 1829], one male 30-40 [William]; one female under 5 [Mary M. b. 1836], one female 5-10 [Julia A. b. 1831], one female 30-40[Eunice b 1805].

     William Gifford died 31 May 1849 in Ovid, Seneca County, New York.361 He was less than fifty years of age. Although a rudimentary search for Gifford families in some Seneca County records was undertaken many years ago, a detailed study has not been made since the identification of William Gifford and his parents. Hopefully, more information will be found when such a study is made.

Known children of Eunice3 Case and William Gifford were as follows:
  • +  346.  i.   Benjamin S.4 Gifford, born 4 May 1829 Troy, Bradford Co., PA; married Julia Basset Rappleye.
  • +  347.  ii.   Julia Ann Gifford, born 16 May 1831 Troy, Bradford Co., PA; married Plinn Davis.
  • +  348.  iii.   Mary M. Gifford, born 16 January 1836 Covert Twp., Seneca Co., NY; married John Fralick.
  •     349.  iv.   William Bradford Gifford was born 23 December 1838 in Covert Twp., Seneca Co., NY.370 He died 19 May 1862 in a hospital near White House, VA.371

         William Bradford Gifford commonly appears as "Bradford," probably to differentiate him from his father, also a William. His date of birth is taken from the Eunice (Case) Gifford family information provided by his sister Mary M. (Gifford) Fralick in 1908.5 This date is consistent with all census and military information found to date. Census information gives his place of birth as New York, probably in Covert Township, Seneca Co. The 1840 U.S. census enumeration shows Bradford's father, William Gifford, living in Covert Township and his household contains a male less than five years of age, probably Bradford, then age two.367

         Apparently, Bradford went to live with his first cousin, Abigail (Williams) Linderman, after his father's death in 1849. He appears with her family in the 1850 U.S. census enumeration of Troy Township, Bradford Co., Pennsylvania.90 However, by 1860 he has returned to his mother's household in Mansfield, Tioga Co., Pennsylvania.362 He lists his occupation there as farm laborer. In fact, he is enumerated eight days later, 19 July 1860, with the household of farmer M. V. Swan as "Bradford Gifford, age 23, farm laborer." This listing states that Bradford was born in Pennsylvania, although the entry is simply a ditto mark.362 As the oldest son then living at home, Bradford's wages were used to support his mother and he also paid her house rent.361

         The outbreak of the Civil War changed this arrangement. William Bradford Gifford enlisted 10 September 1861 at Southport, New York, with brother Stephen. The two enrolled as privates in Company F, 1st New York Light Artillery Regiment. At the age of 23, William B. Gifford was mustered in as a corporal, 30 October 1861, at Elmira, New York, and began the march to Camp Barry, Washington, D.C. the next day. The muster rolls of Company F list him as present through March and April 1862. A note on this muster roll states that he was reduced from the rank of corporal 1 April 1862. No explanation is given. This reduction in rank occurred immediately before the company's advance on Fredericksburg, Virginia.372
         Frederick H. Dyer states in his Compendium that Battery F lost during service 14 enlisted men by disease. William Bradford Gifford was one of these men. The company's muster roll dated May and June 1862 contains this note: "Died in Hospital near White House Va. May 19 - 62. Typhoid fever."373 His place of burial is unknown by this author.
  • +  350.  v.   Matilda A. Gifford, born 23 January 1841 Farmerville, Seneca Co., NY; married Charles M. Rumsey.
  •     351.  vi.   Stephen D. Gifford was born 9 February 1843 in Farmerville, Seneca Co., NY.374 He died 9 February 1866 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.259 He was buried in Glenwood Cemetery, Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.67

         Stephen D. Gifford was probably born in Covert Township, Seneca Co., New York, on 9 February 1843. Two pieces of evidence support this birthdate: the information provided for the E. E. Case manuscript by his sister, Mary M. (Gifford) Fralick5 and his tombstone inscription which states "In memory of Stephen D Gifford who died on his 23d birthday Feb. 9, 1866."67 Although all other information supports the 1843 birth year, Stephen himself gives his age as 21 years five months on his 2 September 1864 Volunteer Enlistment paper.375 This age yields a birthdate in April 1843. Although he was probably born in New York, two pieces of evidence indicate a birthplace in Bradford Co., Pennsylvania: this same enlistment paper and information from the 1860 U.S. census enumeration of Troy, Bradford Co., Pennsylvania, which lists him as "Stephen Gifford, age 16, farm laborer, born in Pennsylvania."268

         Stephen would have been just six years of age when his father died. It seems that he went to live in the home of his first cousin, Oliver Williams, in Troy Township, Bradford Co., Pennsylvania. He appears with Oliver and his family in both the 1850 and 1860 U.S. census enumerations of Troy.90 268 Like his brother William, he worked as a farm laborer. Also like his brother, Stephen enlisted 10 September 1861 at Southport, New York, as a private in Company F, 1st New York Light Artillery Regiment. He was then eighteen years of age.375

         Stephen D. Gifford enlisted on 10 September 1861, in Elmira, Chemung Co., NY, as a private, Company F 1st New York Light Artillery.376
         Stephen D. Gifford was mustered in 24 September 1861 at Elmira, New York, and marched to Camp Barry in Washington, D. C., one week later. The March and April 1862 Battery Muster Roll marks him as "Absent. In hospital at Alexandria, Va." This notice is repeated on the Battery Muster Roll of May and June 1862. Stephen was discharged from Carver Hospital, Washington, D. C., 10 May 1862, by Wm. A. Bradley, Jr., Assistant Surgeon, U. S. A., in charge. Carver Hospital was located on a site just west of present day Howard University. It was one of the new sanitary hospitals, pavilion-style buildings, built in response to urging by the U.S. Sanitary Commission. The Columbia Heights area of Washington, D. C., was considered the healthful place to go to escape the heat, humidity and malarial fever, so it was a natural location for a hospital.377 Stephen's discharge paper states that he was incapable of performing the duties of a soldier because of "Incipient Phthisis."378 At the time of his discharge, he was described as "19 years of age, 5 feet 7 inches high, dark complexion, hazel eyes, brown hair, and by occupation when enlisted a Farmer."375

         Stephen reenlisted as a private 2 September 1864, Penn Yan, Yates Co., New York, again in the 1st Artillery Regiment of New York. He lists his occupation as carpenter.375 Although no company is designated on his enlistment papers, he appears to have rejoined Company F. He is listed as present on all battery muster rolls from September 1864 through April 1865 and appears on Company F's Battery Muster-out Roll dated 17 June 1865, Elmira, New York.379
         After his discharge, Stephen D. Gifford probably returned to either his cousin's home in Bradford County or his mother's home in Tioga County, Pennsylvania. He died in less than a year on 9 February 1866. He is buried in Glenwood Cemetery, Troy, Pennsylvania, in the Oliver Williams lot. Although his sister Mary states that Stephen never married, his tombstone is inscribed "In memory of Stephen D Gifford who died on his 23d birthday Feb 9, 1866. ...Death came to me & snatched away a husband from my side."67 No other evidence for this marriage has been found.

78. Aaron3 Case (Aaron2, Philip1) was born between 1807 and 1808 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.380 He married Lucy Ann Merritt 11 November 1841 by Thomas Wilkinson, Esq, J.P in Cassville, Grant Co., Wisconsin Territory.381 He died 27 March 1852 in Cassville, Grant Co., WI.381

     Aaron Case enlisted on 15 May 1832, in Galena, IL, as a private in Captain Allenworth's company, Colonel James M. Strode's Regiment . He served in the "Black Hawk War."382 He could prove service from 18 May to 6 September 1832.382 He was discharged from military service on 26 September 1832 Galena, IL.382
     Although the Aaron Case of Grant Co., Wisconsin, is presented here as the son of Aaron and Abigail (Olmstead) Case, no direct evidence has been found to date to support this statement. Indirect evidence does support the theory and no evidence has been found to dispute it.
      Aaron Case of Wisconsin was 41 years old on the 1850 census dated 26 Sep 1850 and 42 years old on a deposition dated 23 Dec 1850 yielding a birth date between 2 Jun 1808 and 23 Dec 1808. Aaron Case of Pennsylvania was apparently between 10 and 16 years old in 1820 and came of age before 30 Oct 1829, yielding a birth date between 1804 and 30 Oct 1808. Both men were born in Pennsylvania.
      Aaron Case of Wisconsin married Lucy Ann Merritt, a woman also born in Pennsylvania. Richmond Merritt, born in Bradford Co., Pennsylvania, is a witness to one of Lucy's depositions after her husband's death. No relationship is stated, but Richmond may prove to be a close relative, further linking Aaron of Wisconsin to Bradford County.
      There is no overlap in records created by Aaron Case of Wisconsin and Aaron Case of Pennsylvania. The execution of a power of attorney by Aaron Case (Pennsylvania) on 6 March 1833 suggests his decision to remove permanently from Bradford County. Unfortunately, I have not uncovered any document stating his new residence; nor have I found any statement of previous residence made by the Aaron Case of Wisconsin.
      Arguing against this identity is the fact that no mention of Aaron Case of Wisconsin appears in the letters of his supposed siblings retained by descendants of Betsey (Case) Williams. However, those few letters postdate Aaron's death by more than a decade.
      Readers of this document should understand that this statement of identity is a hypothesis at this time, not a statement of fact..


Lucy Ann Merritt was born 1810 in PA.383 She died before 28 October 1872 William Van Martin is named administrator of the estate of Lucy Ann Case who died intestate. She is stated as being late of Minnesota, but the document is filed in Lyons, Wayne County, New York.384 She was buried in St. Charles Cemetery, Winona, Winona Co., MN.385
Known children of Aaron3 Case and Lucy Ann Merritt were as follows:
  •     353.  i.   Aaron4 Case Jr was born September 1842 in Beetown, Grant Co., WI.386 He died 1 November 1862 cause of death: chronic diarrhoea at the King St. General Hospital in Alexandria, VA.387 He was buried on 2 November 1862 in Military Cemetery, Alexandria, VA.388

         Aaron Case Jr. enlisted on 14 April 1862, in Lancaster, WI, as a private, Company I 5th Wisconsin Infantry . He was a minor at the time and the consent was signed by Addison Burr, Justice of the Peace, Grant County, Wisconsin.387 Listed as "absent, sick, sent to Hospital."387
  • +  354.  ii.   Lauretta Case, born circa 1844 Grant Co., WI; married James L. Finch.
  •     355.  iii.   Thomas Case was born circa 1845 in Beetown, Grant Co., WI.389 He died 1904 in Winona, Winona Co., MN.390 He was buried in Bush Cemetery, Pleasant Hill Twp., Winona Co., MN.390

         Thomas Case enlisted on 5 January 1864, in Boscobel, Grant Co., WI, as a private, Company C 2nd Wisconsin Infantry . He signs with a mark.391 Transferred to Co. A, Independent battalion, 2nd Wisconsin Volunteers.391 He was discharged from military service on 8 July 1865 Madison, Dane Co., WI, . He had been paid $140 in bounty; $160 was still due him at this time.391
  •     356.  iv.   Reuben Case was born circa 1850 in Grant Co., WI.392 He died probably before 1852 in Grant Co., Wisconsin.393

         Reuben Case, the one month old child enumerated with Aaron in Grant County, Wisconsin, in 1850,392 probably died very young. The deposition of William H. Merrit, circa 1854, states, "That the said Aaron Jr., Laura, Thomas and Harriet were the only children of said Aaron Case deceased. All of said children now living according to deponent's best knowledge & belief."393 Although it is possible that Reuben may not have been a child of Aaron Case and Lucy (Merritt) Case, it is more likely that he died very young.
  • +  357.  v.   Harriet Case, born 14 February 1852 Millville, Grant Co., WI; married Addison Allis Boynton.

79. Lydia3 Case (Samuel2, Philip1) was born 4 March 1791 possibly in Washington Co., NY.394 She married Stephen Palmer, son of David Palmer and Eunice (--?--), 1807 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.5 She died 15 May 1854 in Sullivan Twp., Tioga Co., PA.395 She was buried in Palmer family cemetery, Sullivan Twp., Tioga Co., PA.396

     Although the Erastus Ely Case manuscript served as the kernel for this picture of the Lydia (Case) Palmer family, the present status is the result of much research and analysis. The research also provides insight into the methods of Dr. Case. Family group sheet A164144 of Lydia Case (Palmer) was compiled from letter no. 1083 dated May 1910. This letter, written by Mark P. Palmer, Lydia's son, presents a very complete picture of her family. Mark, born in 1827, would have been about 83 years old at the time.5 The group sheet includes the parents' names, birth and death dates and places, and the year of marriage. Twelve children are listed, with complete dates of birth, spouse names, and several dates of death. The two children still living in Sullivan Twp., Mark and his brother Alvin, are noted. Information this complete suggests that Mark Palmer's source was a family Bible. The missing death dates, those of Polly, Nathan, and Alpha, all post-date Stephen's 1873 death date, suggesting that the Bible was originally kept by Stephen Palmer, himself. One important piece of information is missing, however: Stephen's second marriage.

     A second picture of this family also exists in the Case manuscript files: family group sheet A164153 of Lydia Case (Palmer). This sheet was apparently compiled from information found in letter no. 1535 of Dr. S. E. Palmer dated December 1907. Dr. Case identified this Lydia as the daughter and third child of Reuben Case, Samuel's brother! Her birthdate, the only complete date on this page, is 18 Apr 1795, in reality the birthdate of Sylvia, Reuben's daughter and third child. The Case manuscript does not include information on this daughter, Sylvia Case, wife of Russell Palmer. It is likely that Dr. Case misread Leonard F. Case's information on the family of Reuben Case, mistaking Sylvia for Lydia. Given the similarity of the capital S and capital L in the nineteenth century hand, this would be an easy mistake to make. Given the fact that the only other dates on this sheet are the years of birth and death for one child, Anson Palmer, this birth date was probably assigned by Dr. Case and was not provided by S. E. Palmer.
      This mistaken identity would not have occurred if Dr. Case's project included the tracing of female lines. Dr. S. E. Palmer was Stephen E. Palmer, the son of Anson and Mary (Barnes) Palmer and grandson of Lydia Case and Stephen Palmer. Dr. Palmer was sixty years old in 1907 and a resident of Elmira, Chemung Co., NY. His information included his grandparents' names, the names of nine children, their spouses and residences. It also included the name of his grandfather's second wife, Betsey Morgan. The three Palmer children missing from this list were Junette, Charles, and William, all of them long-dead. The wife of William Provin, also long-dead, is included; however, her name is given as Julia A. Palmer. Either this is another misreading on Dr. Erastus Case's part, or it's a flawed memory of the name Delilah on Dr. Stephen Case's part. A comparison of the two group sheets shows clearly that they refer to the same couple.

Stephen Palmer was born 11 October 1787 in Unadilla, Otsego Co., NY.397 He married (2) Betsey Morgan before 27 July 1860.398 He died 22 January 1873 in Sullivan Twp., Tioga Co., PA.395 He was buried in Palmer family cemetery, Sullivan Twp., Tioga Co., PA.396
     Evidence supports two possible birthdates for Stephen Palmer: 11 Nov 17895 and 11 Oct 1787.396 The first date appears in the Case manuscript; the second is the result derived from Stephen's age at death as found on his tombstone. Other dates found in this Case manuscript family group sheet are accurate, but a 1789 year of birth does not fit with Stephen's age as documented by all census records;399 nor does it fit his brother's April 1790 birth date.400 It's possible that the year was misread by Erastus Case and Stephen's true birth date is 11 Nov 1787; however, in the absence of additional evidence, his 11 Oct 1787 calculated birth date fits both family pattern and census evidence. Census evidence places his birth in New York and the Case manuscript narrows that to Unadilla in Otsego (then Montgomery) County. Researchers should note that this Stephen Palmer is not the Stephen Palmer of Tinmouth, Vermont. The Stephen Palmer of Tinmouth is the son of Jareb Palmer. (See discussion under "Descendants of Jareb Palmer").

     Stephen came to Pennsylvania with his father, probably arriving in Burlington Twp., then part of Lycoming County, about 1804. His marriage to Lydia Case took place in 18075 and he was baptized in the Baptist Church in Burlington 28 January 1810 having "related his Experience" the day before with Samuel Case.62 Whether this Samuel Case was his father-in-law or his brother-in-law cannot be determined from these records.

     In June 1841, Stephen and Lydia Palmer sold a one-ninth share in land in Columbia township to Peleg Peck for $33. No residence for the couple is entered in this deed. At the same time, one-ninth shares were also sold by Calvin and Theodotia Tinkham (no residence given) and by Eunice Button of Columbia township.74 These deeds are the only original documents found to date that support the relationship of Stephen and his parents, David and Eunice.

     Stephen, son of David Palmer, and Stephen, son of Jareb Palmer, are frequently confused. The two were almost the same age, both belonged to the Baptist church, and because Stephen (Jareb) died so young, he left few records behind. The two men seldom appear in records simultaneously. The 1820 federal census, Stephen (David) in Sullivan Twp., Tioga Co., PA,401 and Stephen (Jareb) in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA,75 is the one instance that effectively differentiates the two men. The family patterns shown by these two records differ significantly. Stephen (David) was the head of a family that included two boys and four girls; Stephen (Jareb) headed a family of four children, one boy and three girls.

Known children of Lydia3 Case and Stephen Palmer were as follows:
  • +  358.  i.   Polly4 Palmer, born 13 June 1808 Burlington Twp., Lycoming Co., PA; married William Mosher.
  •     359.  ii.   Junette Palmer was born 8 January 1810 in Burlington Twp., Lycoming Co., PA.5 She married Ira Mudge say 1827.5 She died 26 November 1828.5

  • +  369.  xii.   William Hiburn Palmer, born 1 May 1829 Sullivan Twp., Tioga Co., PA; married Huldah Adams.

80. Polly3 Case (Samuel2, Philip1) was born 1 April 1793 in Middlebury, Addison Co., VT.5 She married Eliphalet Ward, son of James Ward and Hulda Gibbs, 4 November 1810 by Elder Elisha Rich at the Baptist Church in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.402 She died 4 April 1876 in Alba, Bradford Co., PA.403 She was buried in Alba Cemetery, Alba, Bradford Co., PA.404

     The information on Polly (Case) Ward in the Case manuscript, family group sheet A164141, was originally provided by her son, Orrin P. Ward, in letter no. 1229 dated May 1907. He provided the names of seven children and their spouses and the birth and death dates of his parents. One known child, a son who died young, is missing from this list, so it is possible that Polly and Eliphalet Ward had other children not found in the Case manuscript.5 Erastus Case added annotations to the group sheet in his own handwriting. This additional information came from Mrs. O. K. Beardsley in letter no. 9362 dated February 1915. Julia Ann (Ward) Beardsley was Orrin's daughter, Polly's granddaughter. She provided birth and death dates for her father and three siblings, as well as middle names for Jane, Lucinda, and Orrin. Polly and her husband shared a birthday, a fact which was probably noted each year in their family. Although their tombstones give an age at death which yields a birth date of 31 March for both Polly and Eliphalet, the family manuscript states that both were born on 1 April. In this instance, it's likely that the family date is correct.


Eliphalet Ward was born 1 April 1789 in Barkhamsted, Litchfield Co., CT.405 He died 11 August 1865 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.406 He was buried in Alba Cemetery, Alba, Bradford Co., PA.404
     The regular army enlistment of Eliphalet Ward provides the first piece of direct evidence identifying the James Ward family of Bradford Co., Pennsylvania, with the James Ward family of Barkhamstead, Connecticut: his birthplace, Barkhamstead, Litchfield Co., Connecticut. While still a boy, Eliphalet would have removed with his family from Connecticut to New York and finally to what was then called Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, where he was probably one of the two males age 10 to 16 enumerated in his father's household in Wysox township in 1800. The conflicting land claims in this area provide researchers with an unusual source, the twelve-year-old Eliphalet's signature on the November 1801 petition to Congress submitted by the Connecticut claimants, one of whom was his father James.

     Eliphalet Ward joined the Baptist church in Troy, Pennsylvania, 16 February 1809.62 His future wife, Polly Case, was already a member of this church. The two were married by Elder Elisha Rich in this church 4 November 1810 or 1811. (The year cannot be stated conclusively as Polly (Case) Ward's application for a widow's pension contains both dates.)402 On 23 November 1814, in Homer, New York, Eliphalet joined the 29th U. S. Infantry as a private in Captain B. Schuyler's company. He was described as a farmer, 5 foot 7 inches tall, with blue eyes, and sandy hair and complexion. His five-year term of enlistment ended early when he was discharged 16 August 1815 at Greenbush, New York, due to the "loss of left eye and deafness."407

     Eliphalet Ward enlisted on 23 November 1814, in Homer, NY, as a private in Captain B. Schuyler's company, (--?--) 29th Regiment United States Infantry . He was absent on extra duty 30 Apr 1815; the Descriptive Roll of Captain and Brevet Major Stockton's Company, 6th US Infantry, Aug 31, 1815 reports him "never joined the Company since Organization of Regiment." There is no further information. Note that the 29th was made the 6th US Infantry on 17 May 1815.402 He was discharged from military service on 16 August 1815 Troy, Rensellaer Co, NY, on Surgeon's Certificate of disability.408
Known children of Polly3 Case and Eliphalet Ward were as follows:
  •     370.  i.   Horace N.4 Ward was born between 1810 and 1815 probably in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.409 He married Elmina Pierce say 1838.410 He died 7 February 1846 in Alba, Bradford Co., PA.411

         Horace N. Ward died shortly before 17 February 1846, the date his widow Elmina, father Eliphalet Ward, and brother Samuel Ward all renounced their right to administer his estate. There are few papers in his estate and it was apparently settled 28 March 1846 when a final bill of sale, containing no purchasers' names, was filed. Administrators were Horace D. Freeman and David Palmer. Evidently, Horace and Elmina had no children. His father's will does not name any offspring for Horace, nor are there any children living with Elmina and her second husband, Daniel Greenleaf, in 1850.

  • +  371.  ii.   Jane Ann Ward, born 29 May 1815 Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA; married Zina L. Scott.
  • +  372.  iii.   Lydia M. Ward, born 7 September 1820 Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA; married William Boyce.
  •     373.  iv.   Samuel Case Ward was born circa 1824 in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.412 He married Elizabeth Riley say 1851.5
  • +  374.  v.   Lucinda Powell Ward, born 28 February 1828 Alba, Bradford Co., PA; married William S. Patrick.

  • +  377.  viii.   Orrin Provin Ward, born 23 June 1835 Canton Twp., Bradford Co., PA; married Paulina A. Wright.

81. Samuel3 Case (Samuel2, Philip1) was born 3 September 1795 probably in Washington Co., NY.414 He married (1) Zeruah Thomas, daughter of Jacob Thomas and Susannah Rowley, 7 September 1820 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.415 He married (perhaps) (2) Mary (--?--) between 1844 and 1850 in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.90 He died 17 April 1875 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.404 He was buried in Alba Cemetery, Alba, Bradford Co., PA.416

     Erastus Case obtained his information for Samuel Case and his family, group sheet A164142, from Mrs. Arthur MacAfee, letter no. 1868 dated April 1904, and Mrs. Samantha Wood, letter no. 2191 dated September 1904. Samantha (Case) Wood, born in 1823, was Samuel's daughter and oldest child. Alice Amanda (Case) MacAfee, born in 1870, was Samuel's granddaughter, daughter of his fourth child, Eliza Ann (Case) Case. Although the dates given on this sheet are supported by other evidence, Samuel's birthplace is entered as Troy, Bradford Co., Pennsylvania, and wife Zeruah's birthplace is entered as Vermont. In 1795, Samuel Case pere would have been in Washington Co., New York, or Addison Co., Vermont. Zeruah Thomas was born in Canada.

     Samuel Case's marriage to Zeruah Thomas was confirmed by a deed dated 24 September 1845 in which Samuel, one of the heirs-at-law of Jacob Thomas deceased, sells his share in lands once owned by Jacob Thomas. Samuel is called the "survivor of Zeruah Case his wife formerly Zeruah Thomas."74


Zeruah Thomas was born 31 January 1800 in Canada.417 She died 18 October 1844 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.404 She was buried in Alba Cemetery, Alba, Bradford Co., PA.404
Known children of Samuel3 Case and Zeruah Thomas were as follows:
  • +  378.  i.   Samantha4 Case, born 15 February 1823 Troy, Bradford Co., PA; married Nelson Wood.
  •     379.  ii.   Amanda Case was born 18 June 1825 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.418 She married Daniel Randall after 25 October 1881 the date of Daniel's first wife's death, probably in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.419 She died 9 October 1901 in Canton Twp., Bradford Co., PA.420 She was buried on 12 October 1901 in Alba Cemetery, Alba, Bradford Co., PA.421

Mary (--?--) was born 1803 in NY.90 She died before 1860 in PA.90
There were no known children of Samuel3 Case and Mary (--?--).

82. Thomas3 Case (Samuel2, Philip1) was born 12 February 1798 in Washington Co., NY.422 He married Isabella Wilson 26 September 1822 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.423 He died 27 July 1872 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.423 He was buried in Windfall Cemetery, Canton, Bradford Co., PA.424

     Mrs. Alvin Dunbar, in letter no. 2975 dated November 1904, provided the information on the family of Thomas Case, family group sheet A164143, in the Case family manuscript. Isabel Deliverance (Case) Dunbar, born in 1832, was Thomas's daughter. She and her youngest sister, Augusta (Case) Ayers were the only surviving children of the family. Contemporary evidence found to date has verified most of the information provided by Mrs. Dunbar; however, some date discrepancies do exist.


Isabella Wilson, daughter of William and Margaret (Ballard) Wilson, was born 29 January 1804 in Burlington, Bradford Co., PA.425 She died 3 August 1873 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.426 She was buried in Windfall Cemetery, Canton, Bradford Co., PA.424
Known children of Thomas3 Case and Isabella Wilson were as follows:
  • +  384.  i.   Perry4 Case, born 6 November 1825 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married Valeria Augusta Bush.
  • +  385.  ii.   Theresa Margaret Case, born 4 June 1827 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married Henry W. Jennings.
  • +  386.  iii.   Isabel Deliverance Case, born 18 July 1832 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married Alvin T. Dunbar.
  •     387.  iv.   Lydia P. Case was born 27 March 1835 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.5 She died 4 April 1855 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.5 She was buried in Windfall Cemetery, Canton, Bradford Co., PA.424

  • +  389.  vi.   Augusta Martha Case, born 1 December 1845 Canton Twp., Bradford Co., PA; married Marcus P. Ayres.

83. Zina3 Case (Samuel2, Philip1) was born 12 January 1802 in VT.427 He married Aurelia Watkins September 1830 in Austinville, Bradford Co., PA.428 He died 1 February 1880 time of death: 2:00 p.m in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.429 He was buried in Glenwood Cemetery, Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.67

     The information on the Zina Case family, family group sheet A164145 in the Case manuscript, came from daughters Mary Jane (Case) Case, letter no. 964 dated June 1903, and Hester (Case) (Pennell) Watkins, letter no. 1231 dated April 1904. The death of Burton Hubble Case in May 1911 was added by hand. Many of the dates provided, as well as the birth order of the children, conflicts with census, cemetery, and vital record information.


Aurelia Watkins was born 19 September 1804 in Hartford, Hartford Co., CT.430 She died 21 August 1886 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.431 She was buried in Glenwood Cemetery, Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.67
Known children of Zina3 Case and Aurelia Watkins were as follows:

  •     393.  iv.   H. Burton Case was born 8 August 1837 in Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA.432 He died 6 May 1911 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.5

  • +  395.  vi.   David W. Case, born 8 August 1842 Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA; married Betsey A. (--?--).
  • +  396.  vii.   Margaret Augusta Case, born 23 July 1846 Troy Twp., Bradford Co., PA; married Alexander Kennedy.

84. Lucy3 Case (Samuel2, Philip1) was born 22 December 1804 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.5 She married David Stephenson Landon 8 April 1825 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.5 She died 2 February 1833 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.5 She was buried in Park Cemetery, Canton, Bradford Co., PA.433

     The information on Lucy (Case) Landon, family group sheet A164146 in the Case manuscript, was provided by her daughter, Mrs. Emily E. (Landon) Pepper in letter no. 1082 dated June 1903. At that time, Mrs. Pepper was 74 years old, a resident of West Burlington, Pennsylvania. Although the information provided has been verified to some extent, it is very incomplete. Her mother died when Emily was only four years old and her father soon remarried. In fact, he married a third time late in life. Neither remarriage, nor her half-siblings, appear on the family group sheet, showing the emphasis that Dr. Case must have placed on direct line information only.


David Stephenson Landon was born 2 March 1802 son of Laban and Elizabeth (Gilless) Landon in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.434 He married (2) Fiche Putnam circa 1835 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA. He died 9 May 1880 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.5 He was buried in Park Cemetery, Canton, Bradford Co., PA.433
Known children of Lucy3 Case and David Stephenson Landon were as follows:
  • +  397.  i.   Emily E.4 Landon, born 14 March 1829 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married Decatur Pepper.
  •     398.  ii.   Vanrensselaer Landon was born 2 February 1831 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.435 He died May 1855 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.

85. Philander3 Case (Samuel2, Philip1) was born 18 March 1809 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.436 He married Elizabeth Grantier 1830 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.437 He died 7 May 1881 in Canton Twp., Bradford Co., PA.437 He was buried in Windfall Cemetery, Canton, Bradford Co., PA.424

     The information on the Philander Case family, Case manuscript group sheet no. A164147, comes from two of his children: Mrs. Elizabeth Clarke, letter no. 5657 dated June 1907, and Herbert H. Case, letter no. 955 dated July 1907.5 Polly Clark would have been about 71 years old and Herbert about 55 years old at this time. Exact dates of birth and death of Philander and his wife are given, but exact dates of birth were not shown for two of the ten children. It is not likely, therefore, that these dates came from a family Bible or other family record.


Elizabeth Grantier, daughter of John and Catherine (Heverly) Grantier, was born 14 February 1811 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.438 She died 2 January 1899 in Canton, Bradford Co., PA.424 She was buried in Windfall Cemetery, Canton, Bradford Co., PA.424
Known children of Philander3 Case and Elizabeth Grantier were as follows:
  • +  399.  i.   Delight Delia4 Case, born June 1832 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married Erastus R. Covert; married George T. Wing.
  • +  400.  ii.   Elizabeth P. Case, born 28 March 1836 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married Courtland Clark.
  • +  401.  iii.   Delilah Case, born 23 November 1837 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married John Wesley Haflett.
  • +  402.  iv.   Philander Case Jr., born 3 September 1841 Canton Twp., Bradford Co., PA; married Lizzie Greer; married Louisa Janette Lewis.
  • +  403.  v.   Helen P. Case, born 1 August 1843 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married George Hewitt Haflett.
  • +  404.  vi.   Margaret Theresa Case, born 18 March 1845 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married Moses E. Foresman.
  • +  405.  vii.   Lucinda Delphine Case, born 3 February 1847 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married Benjamin Putnam.
  •     406.  viii.   Harriet Maria Case was born October 1849 in Canton Twp., Bradford Co., PA.439 She married (1) Hyman W. Bates say 1871.440 She married (2) Myers Case circa 1897.441 She died 1923.424 She was buried in Windfall Cemetery, Canton, Bradford Co., PA.424

         Although Harriet Case was living at the time Dr. Erastus Ely Case was compiling his Case family manuscript, it was Harriet's sister Helen who provided the meager information on her family. Family group sheet A1641478 of Harriet M. Case (Bates) (Case) states only that Harriet was born in Canton in 1850 and marriet first Hiram Bates and second Myres Case. She resided in Trout Run, Lycoming Co., PA, in 1908 and had no family.5
  • +  407.  ix.   Herbert Henry Case, born 2 July 1852 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married Mary Ann Nicholas.
  • +  408.  x.   Benjamin Franklin Case, born 9 April 1854 Canton, Bradford Co., PA; married Fidelia Nicholas.

86. Cynthia3 Case (Samuel2, Philip1) was born 26 May 1815 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.442 She married Dana Dunbar, son of Zina Dunbar and Bethiah Ward, 9 May 1833 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.443 She died 29 January 1871 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.444 She was buried in East Troy Cemetery, East Troy, Bradford Co., PA.445

     Family group sheet A164148 in the Case family manuscript tells the brief story of Cynthia (Case) Dunbar. Although this information supposedly came from Cynthia's son Thomas in letter no. 1984 dated March 1905, the page includes Thomas Dunbar's death date, 13 March 1905. Perhaps the letter was begun by Thomas and concluded by his wife. Two additional points of interest appear on the page: the only birth date not entered was that of Thomas Dunbar himself and no death date appears for Dana Dunbar. Although he died in 1889, the information in the Case manuscript states that he was a mechanic residing in Troy.


Dana Dunbar was born 25 September 1810 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.446 He married (2) Anna Ransier say 1875.447 He died 2 May 1889 in Bradford Co., PA.448 He was buried in East Troy Cemetery, East Troy, Bradford Co., PA.449
Known children of Cynthia3 Case and Dana Dunbar were as follows:
  • +  409.  i.   Thomas P.4 Dunbar, born 24 July 1845 Troy, Bradford Co., PA; married Jane Stiles.
  • +  410.  ii.   Harrietta A. Dunbar, born 4 May 1850 Troy, Bradford Co., PA; married Orrin Porter Peters.

87. John3 Case (Samuel2, Philip1) was born in Troy, Bradford Co., PA, possibly 18 August 1818.450 He married Julia Ann Ward, daughter of Aldrich Ward and Abigail Merritt, 18 September 1834 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.451 He died 26 October 1896 in Granville Center, Bradford Co., PA.452

     The Erastus Ely Case manuscript gives John's date of birth as 18 August 1818 in Troy, Pennsylvania. The information on the family came from John's son Samuel, but several contemporary documents dispute this statement: the 1860 U.S. census lists his age as 45 (born ca. 1815); the 1850 census shows him as age 38 (born ca. 1812) and his burial entry . The 1818 birth date is supported by the 1880 census (age 62) and that of 1870 (age 51). Although John is buried in Granville Center Cemetery, there is no headstone and burial records for him do not include any dates. Samuel and Hannah Case had two sons born between 1810 and 1820, John and Benjamin. The 1830 census shows that one of these two was born between 1810 and 1815, the other between 1815 and 1820. Family records seem to agree that Benjamin was the younger of the two boys, placing John's birth between 1810 and 1815. The 1812-1815 birth range also fits better with the 1834 marriage date and 1836 birth date for his first child. Only microfilmed copies of newspapers have been searched to date. These begin in 1900, so his obituary has not been read. There is insufficient evidence at this time to reach a conclusion as to John Case's exact date of birth.

     Children of John Case: A deed dated 10 January 1898 disposes of a small lot of land in Granville township. The grantors, S. R. Case, Emeline Case Calkins, Minerva A. Dickinson, Lyman Dailey and wife Fidelia A. Dailey sell the land to John H. Case for the small sum of $1 to each grantor. Although no relationships are stated, the date of the deed and the token monetary amount support the hypothesis that these are children of John and Julia Ann (Ward) Case.

Julia Ann Ward was born 22 April 1819 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.453 She died 24 March 1895 in Granville Center, Bradford Co., PA.318
Known children of John3 Case and Julia Ann Ward were as follows:
  • +  411.  i.   Minerva Amanda4 Case, born 11 December 1836 Troy, Bradford Co., PA; married Charles O. Dickinson.
  •     412.  ii.   Henry Case was born 13 March 1842 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.5 He died 29 June 1850 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.
  •     413.  iii.   Emeline Case was born 18 November 1844 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.454 She married Horace Calkins 16 September 1873 possibly in Granville Twp., Bradford Co., PA.455 She died 17 September 1924.455 She was buried in Granville Center Cemetery, Granville Twp., Bradford Co., PA.456

         The Case manuscript states that Emily Case married Horace Calkins in 1873. She did marry someone named Calkins; if her husband was Horace Calkins, he was twenty-four years older than she was. The couple may not have lived together very long. By 1880, both are living in separate households, although both state they are married. Horace Calkins's obituary does not mention a surviving wife and Emily's signature on an 1898 deed, Emeline Case Calkins, may imply she was divorced by that time. Her husband is not named in this deed.74
  • +  414.  iv.   Samuel Ransom Case, born 3 January 1849 Troy, Bradford Co., PA; married Mary E. Ludington.
  • +  415.  v.   Fidelia Abigail Case, born 15 July 1853 Troy, Bradford Co., PA; married Lyman Dailey.
  • +  416.  vi.   John Hiram Case, born 25 September 1858 Granville Center, Bradford Co., PA; married Cora A. Gee.
  •     417.  vii.   Milton Case was born 17 August 1864 in Troy, Bradford Co., PA.455 He died 5 May 1866.455

         Milton Case does not appear as a child of John and Julia (Ward) Case in Erastus Case's manuscript. The information on the family was provided by Milton's brother Samuel, and it is unlikely that he would forget a brother. After all, Samuel did include his brother Henry, who died in 1850, in the family listing. There is one possible explanation. Assuming Milton Case does belong in this family, his birth took place after Samuel enlisted in the military and he died shortly after the Civil War ended. Perhaps this explains why Samuel did not include this brother on a list made forty years later. The unknown compiler of the Samuel Case manuscript, however, does not include Henry Case in his (or her) list of family members. Henry's existence is shown by his inclusion in the 1850 census enumeration of the John Case family.90 No other evidence for Milton has been found to date.

89. George3 McGilvrey (Chestina2 Case, Philip1) was born 1810 in NY.457 He married Olive (--?--) say 1840. He died 10 May 1873 in Ithaca, Tompkins Co., NY.458 He was buried in Gibbs Cemetery, Enfield, Tompkins Co., NY.98

99. Bradley M.3 Pennell (Sarah2 Case, Philip1) was born 27 March 1817 probably in Niles, Cayuga Co., NY.477 He married (1) Caroline (--?--) say 1855.106 He married (2) Elizabeth Colvin 4 November 1875 in Berrien Co., MI.475

  •     441.  i.   Alice A.4 Pennell was born circa 1857 probably in Berrien Co., MI.477

         Although only 23 years old in 1880, the federal census of that year reports Alice's marital status as divorced.
    104

Elizabeth Colvin was born circa 1832 in OH.104
     The maiden name of Elizabeth, second wife of Bradley M. Pennell, is unknown at this time. She married Bradley as Elizabeth Colvin, not her maiden name as the Pennell household enumerated in the 1880 federal census of Niles, MI, includes two step-children: Rhoda, age 17, and Edward, age 13, probably Elizabeth's children by a previous marriage. A search for Colvins and Calvins in Berrien Co. in 1870 uncovered the household of Phillip Calvin, with a wife Elizabeth, age 38, daughter Rhoda, age 8, and son Edward, age 4. Elizabeth's birthplace is recorded as Ohio. A search of the Dibean marriage index did not uncover a marriage between Elizabeth and Phillip. As both were born in Ohio, it's possible that their marriage took place in that state. Phillip's death was not found in GENDIS.

There were no known children of Bradley M.3 Pennell and Elizabeth Colvin.

100. Comfort3 Pennell (Sarah2 Case, Philip1) was born 27 February 1819 probably in Niles, Cayuga Co., NY.104 He married Mary Lemon 27 February 1845 in Berrien Co., MI.478 He died 1897 probably in Oronoko Twp., Berrien Co., MI.102 He was buried in Storrick Cemetery, Oronoko Twp., Berrien Co., MI.102
