Notes: Samuel was born and raised in Madison County. After he married Esther, he went to work for her father. The father was so annoying, Samuel rented a farm, but Esther refused to leave her parents. so he divorced her, and married Rachael, who died the same year they were married at the age of 19. His third wife Martha also died relatively early in the marriage, so Samuel remarried Esther. Shortly thereafter, Samuel himself died.

Samuel's obituary from Madison Crhonicle, Saturday, January 31, 1857:

"We learn that on Saturday last, as Mr. Samuel Melvin, son of B. Melvin, descendant of this County, was on his way from marion County where he resided, on a visit to his friends in this neighborhood and after having crossed Little Darby Creek at the Old Post Road, his horst stumbled and threw him off. There being one or two other persons riding along side of him, dismounted and raised him to his feet and inquired of him whether he was hurt, to which he answered, no.
A wagon happened to pass the spot where the accident happened, he was requested to ride in it. After riding a few miles he ordered the team to stop and died in a few minutes afterwards. The only injury that could be perceived that he received from the fall was a slight bruise on the face. Mr. Melvin was about 29 years old and leaves a wife and several children to mourn their loss."

Samuel is buried at the Lower Glade Cemetery in (Madison) OH.

26. Ackley Curtis was born around 1821 in NY, and died between 1867-1870 in OH. He married Mary Rogers before 1850.
27. Mary Rogers was born around 1826 in VT, and died after 1880 in OH. She married (2) George Slocum. She married (3) Orson Beach.

Notes: Ackley and Mary lived in New London (Huron) OH in the 1850 census--no children at that time. By 1860, the family was living in (Franklin) OH. Incidentally, also in (Franklin) OH that year was a convict named George Slocum, in prison for murder. By the 1870 census, Mary had been widowed and she married Slocum, who was nearly 20 years her senior. Presumably, he was freshly out of the penititiary and looking for a wife, while Mary was seeking a husband to keep her children by Ackley out of the orphanage. By 1880, she had been widowed and remarried again, this time to Orson Beach, a widower with children of his own.

30. David Rader was born 16 February 1802 in VA, and died 27 October 1881 in (Delaware) OH. He married Rachel Custer 30 December 1824.
31. Rachel Custer was born 1804 in VA, and died 14 September 1889. She was the daughter of 62. Joseph Custer and 63. Sarah Rader.

Notes: I could not find this family in the 1850 census. The above Arewine family apparently also eluded the 1850 census-takers. In the 1840 census though, I found the Arewines in Hocking County, and the Raders in neighboring Fairfield. My theory is that the Arewines headed north into Fairfeild, where they met the Raders, and the families migrated to Delaware County together. In the 1860 census, the family of David and Rachel Rader, including 15 year-old Elizabeth, were living just next door to a presumably widowed Amy Arewine and her children.

John Adair settled on Deer Creek, on land now owned by James Wilson, in 1806. About the same year came William Blair and John Blair and settled on Glade Run, on the Plimell place.

320. James Melvin was born around 1714, and died 1778 in Lower Milford (Bucks) PA.

Notes: James Melvin, a Bucks County non-Quaker farmer and 11-term assemblyman, generally supported the legislature’s stance on defense matters during the French and Indian War.

By June 1742, Melvin was living in Bucks County. By a 1750 warrant, a 135-acre property in Rockhill was surveyed to him. A farmer, Melvin evidently established his home plantation there. His social origins and religion are not known, although an unsubstantiated genealogical account identifies him as a Scots-Irish Presbyterian. He was a non-Quaker, for he swore an oath, instead of affirming, when qualifying for grand jury duty.

In 1771, Melvin moved to Lower Milford, acquiring a 103-acre plantation there. Evidently to help finance the purchase, Melvin borrowed 300 pounds, by mortgaging his Rockhill plantation. The next year he borrowed an additional 100 pounds, by mortgaging his new home. These debts were settled by his estate. At least prior to 1767, Melvin was rarely, if ever, involved in litigation over debt at Bucks County court.

The Will of James Melvin, written 24 September 1777, proved 08 December 1778.

Whereas, I James Melvin of Lower Milford in the County of Bucks, (Pennsylvania), being weak in body but of sound mind and memory and considering the uncertainty of time, do make and put in writing this my last will and testament in the manner and form following:

First, I will that all my just debts and funeral expenses be carefully paid and discharged.

Item: I give and devise unto my son Samuel Melvin, his heirs and assigns, forever all my Plantation and Tract of Land whereon I now live in the Township of Lower Milford aforesaid, containing one hundred and three acres and a quarter or thereabout;

Item: I give unto my daughter Susanna Dungworth living with me, her bed and all its appurtenances and her wearing apparel, and I give her also the sum of forty pounds in current money of America;

Item: I give unto my son Thomas Melvin the sum of ten pounds, and to my son John Melvin I give the like sum of ten pounds, and to my son Joseph Melvin I give the sum of ten pounds, and to my daughter Jane Barnes I give the sum of ten pounds, and to my daughter Mary Crossley I give the like sum of ten pounds, currency aforesaid;

Item: I give to my son Samuel above named all the residue of my goods and effects whatsoever that shall remain after the payment of my debts and legacies aforesaid, and I do hereby ordain and appoint my said son Samuel Melvin to be my executor of this my last will and testament.

In witness hereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this twenty-fourth day of September in the year of our Lord, One Thousand Seven Hundred and Seventy Seven.

Signed and sealed and declared by the said testator to be his last will and testament in the presence of us.

The nature of this will and inventory strongly suggest that most of his children had already been given the bulk of their inheritance. The household belongs (84 pounds) inventoried consist of only a few items (with a desk, a bed, and pewter worth 65 pounds), not the long list of belongings usually found in inventories of farmers of even quite mosdest means. Moreover, in June 1779, Samuel Melvin sold the farm he inherited for 1125 pounds, a sum that suggests his father had been a man of fairly substantial wealth. (Thanks to Bruce Warnock for this info.)

Notes: John Adair and his wife came to America in 1771, landing in Baltimore, MD. After a year, they moved to Pennsylvania where they remained only a short time. Adair became interested in the pending settlements in North Carolina and joined a group which made its way down to Sullivan County, NC (now Tennessee) in 1772 or 1773. For about twelve years they lived there, near the present city of Bristol.

His reputation grew in his community and the governor of North Carolina appointed him the entry-taker of the county in 1776. His duties were to collect the small fees charged by the State for lands granted to settlers. This position enabled him to contribute greatly to the victory at the Battle of King’s Mountain in the Revolutionary War, although he was forty-eight years old and ineligible to serve in the army. Thereby hangs a tale.

By the summer of 1780, the British had overrun the South and the morale of the patriots was poor as a result. Lord Cornwallis had dispatched Major Patrick Ferguson to put a stop to guerilla forays, some of which were conducted by patriots from the Watauga Settlements on Upper East Tennessee. Ferguson threatened to cross the mountains, burn the Wataugans’ homes and lay waste to their farms. When Colonels John Sevier (who would become the first governor of Tennessee in 1796) and Isaac Shelby heard this, they made plans to meet Ferguson head on instead of waiting for his attack. The Wataugans pledged their aid enthusiastically, but they needed money to buy equipment, ammunition and food. They had no money, since it had been spent in buying their land and building their homes. But Sevier and Shelby thought of John Adair whose entry-taker funds (around $13,000) were all that were available. When they made their request, Adair’s reply revealed his patriotism:

Colonel Sevier, I have no authority by law to make deposition of this money. It belongs to the impoverished treasury of North Carolina, and I dare not appropriate one cent of it to any purpose. But, if the country is overrun by the British, liberty is gone. Let the money go too. Take it. If the enemy, by its use, is driven from the country, I can trust that country to justify and vindicate my conduct. Take it.

The Overmountain Men from Watauga contributed greatly to victory at King’s Mountain in October 1781, a turning-point in the war. The battle was won, Ferguson was slain and the discouraged commander-in-chief, Lord Cornwallis, moved his army into Eastern Virginia and surrendered at last to General George Washington at Yorktown, ending the war. Sevier and Shelby kept their pledge to refund the money Adair had provided and the Treasury of North Carolina was repaid on January 31, 1782.

In recognition of his services to his country, the State of North Carolina granted John Adair a section of land (640 acres) in Hawkins County (now Knox County), Tennessee in 1788. Adair built a log cabin surrounded by a stockade of logs. Two springs outside Adair’s Station (or Fort Adair) supplied water. Although attacked by Indians on several occasions, it was never captured.

Adair’s neighbors were five miles away at Whites Fort (now downtown Knoxville), where General James White and James Conner, Adair’s contemporaries, had settled. The largely self-reliant Adair family took their grain to the miller there and eventually attended church at the First Presbyterian Church near Whites Fort.

One of the favorite routes to the Cumberland Settlements (Nashville) was via the Cumberland Road or Cumberland Trace. Settlers assembled at the foot of Clinch Mountain and, when enough had gathered, were conducted to Nashville by the Cumberland Guard (North Carolina militiamen). The route was so heavily traveled that by 1787 the Assembly authorized the militia to widen and level the road to accommodate the “vast emigration pouring into the country beyond the wilderness.” John Adair was named Commissioner in charge of purchasing supplies for the Guard in 1788 and opened his supply depot for that purpose and to take advantage of the travelers who crossed Beaver Ridge, then Hind’s Valley across Black Oak Ridge and into the Fort in Grassy Valley. The settlers followed the old Indian path near the former location of the Belcaro estate through what is now the Lynnhurst Cemetery property and to Adair’s Fort, the last place where the hundreds of emigrants could procure supplies before plunging into the wilderness. Adair’s business prospered.

In 1792, Adair became one of the members of the first Knox County Court and in 1794, he was named a member of the first board of trustees of Blount College (later the University of Tennessee). He became a member of the Constitutional Convention (1796), which would design the first Constitution for the State of Tennessee. In 1796, and again in 1800, he was a Presidential Elector. Known as a man of honor and of unblemished character, John Adair was chosen one of the original elders of First Presbyterian Church.

Upon his death at the age of 95, the following obituary appeared in the Knoxville Register:

DIED--On February 24, 1827, at his residence in this County, John Adair, Esq., at the advanced age of ninety-five years. He was among the early settlers in this County, a man of enterprise and respectability, for many years an Elder in the Presbyterian Church; unblemished in his deportment with the world, and continued to the end to evince the integrity of his heart and sincerity of his profession.

He and his wife were buried on his farm, now a part of Lynnhurst Cemetery. In 1924, the Bonny Kate Chapter of the DAR placed a maker over the grave of Adair.

When he spoke of his surname, he told someone that he came about his name because he had "naut" or nothing. So he called himself "Naughton" which was slowly changed to Norton. Land records show the spelling and it is said that he arrived in the area of Hartford County in 1720. There he married Susannah Henderson between 1720 and 1725.

596. Joseph Boynton was born 13 May 1644 in Rowley (Essex) MA, and died 16 December 1730 in Rowley (Essex) MA. He was the son of 1192. John Boynton and 1193. Eleanor Pell. He married Sarah Swan 13 May 1669 in Rowley (Essex) MA.

Notes: Joseph Boynton was a captain in Col. Francis Wainwright’s 1st Regiment. He was also the town clerk of Rowley and a representative to the General Court for many years. He was a pinder for the northeast field in 1670-71. He was made the constable in 1685, replacing Thomas Lamber, who had died. Joseph and his wife Sarah and their son Benoni and his wife Ann were dismissed from the church in Rowley to that of Groton 14 December 1715, but after Sarah’s death, returned to Rowley.

Capt. Boynton served in the Port Royal expedition in 1706 and 1707. Port Royal was a port on the western shore of what is now Nova Scotia. Many attacks on New Englanders during the French and Indian Wars began in Canada, but since the forests separating New England and Canadian towns were controlled by hostile Indians, the best avenue of attack open to the English was by sea. The Port Royal expedition of 1707, an attack based upon this theme, failed when the attacking forces were repulsed. However, in 1710, another expedition was mounted and the French surrendered in the face of overwhelming odds. The name of the town was later changed to Annapolis Royal.

No will for Joseph was ever recorded nor was there an administration of his estate. His gravestone still standing in the Rowley yard reads: “Here Lies Ye Body of Capt Joseph Boynton who died December 16, 1730 Aged about 85 years Make Christ your friend Before you die that You may live Eternal.”

736. Edward B. Banning was born around 1630 in England, and died before August 1710 in (Talbot) MD. He was the son of 1472. Stephen Banning

Notes: Edward Banton (Banning) 11 January 1635, bound to Darrell Sam for 4 years. We have not found Edward on a passenger list, so we presume he was brought to Maryland as an indentured servant. Darrell Sam may have been a ship owner and Edward worked his way as a seaman to America. He would have been very young, but this was not uncommon in those times. Some records have him listed as a sea captain.

Edwards father was Stephen Banning, who died in 1714 as an old man. Edward had a brother John, who was married in 1649 to Elizabeth Noyes of Wooton Rivers, Wilits; she was the heiresss of Noyes. John died in 1716 and she in 1719. They had six children and one of these was John, born in 1705 in Milton Wilts. He married Mary Ayers in 1744. The Reason she is included is to verify Edwards relationship with the above.

A great grandson of Edwards, Jeremiah Banning, was a sea captain for many years. On one of his voyages to England, he brought back various things given to him by his relatives. One was a sampler that was given to him by Mary Ayers, the wife of his father's cousin. This sampler is still in existence and is evidence that Edward belongs to the early English line of Robert Banning, 1539. One of the facts in the sampler is the marriage of John Banning to Mary Ayers. There is or was a museum in Oxford, Maryland dedicated to Bannings and they have relics of Capt. Jeremiah Banning. In the genealogical department of the Talbot free library in Easton, Maryland is a fine display case which contains "The log of Jeremiah Banning."

Edward Banning’s will was signed in 1704, submitted for probate 07 August.1710, and proved 1712 in Talbot County, Maryland. Children of Edward Banning
