1. Earl Richard Osborne,1 son of Sidney Phelps Osborne and Grace Watson , was born on 20 Jun 1919 in Yerington, Lyon, Nevada and was christened on 10 Jul 1921 in Methodist Church, Yerington, Nevada.

General Notes: Source of children's births and marriages: Osborne family records.

Earl was born and raised on a farm in Yerington, Nevada. In his early teens, after the separation of his parents, he lived with his mother and stepfather. (His sister Ellen was already married and his brother Roy lived with their father.) Earl's mother and stepfather moved often and at the age of 14 he went with them to Montana and later to Logan, Utah before returning to Yerington where he finished high school. He was very shy as a young man. He was interested in school sports but wasn't allowed to participate because he had lost a kidney from a fall from a horse. This was a blow to his ego. As the old song goes "You Gotta Be a Football Hero to Get Along with the Beautiful Girls."

The May 10th 1937 edition of the Reno Evening Gazett had an article entitled Roll of Honor Given at Lyon. The honor roll for the Yerington high school for the past six week period was announced as follows: Eighty-five to ninety - ... Earl Osborne.

The June 1st 1938 edition had an article entitled Yerington Class to Graduate Friday. Thirty-five seniors will receive their diplomas from the high school here on Friday evening at commencement exercises to be held at Rink Hall. This is one of the largest classes ever to graduate from the local high school. The past weekend has been taken up with student activities which began Saturday evening with the junior - senior banquet and the senior ball. The banquet was held at Spangler hall and members of the junior and senior classes and the faculty were guests... The following seniors will receive their diplomas: Roy Alazzi, Fred Barrett, Charles Booth, Frank Booth, Jim Borge, Victor Bernard, Ray Charlebols, Joy Chiantelli, Mario Dini, Eleanor Fabri, Norma Fabri, Claude Farrell, LaVerda Fitzgerald, Pat Gallager, Bernice Gastman, Marie Gomes, Easter Hanson, Ruth Hansen, Etalo Lommori, Bill Mathews, Frank McGowan, Gerald McGowan, Florence Malonchi, Leona Osborn, Stanley Osborne, Earl Osborne, Idanne Perry, Gene Powers, Louie Romani, Peter Rosaschi, Lela Sciarani, Florence Strosnider, Anne Wagoner, Frances Willis and Arthur Warken.

On Feb.13, 1940 the Nevada State Journal carried an article entitled Birthday Fete Held on Friday. Dayton - A birthday dinner was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Kraai Friday evening honoring Mr. Kraai. A birthday cake was the center of attraction and dinner was served to Mr. and Mrs. Al Lungrum, the Masters Lyle and Douglas Stoner, Max McCallum and Mulligan from Como, Earl Osborne, Sidney Kraai, Miss Wanda Kraai and the host and hostess.

He became involved in the Roosevelt NYA (National Youth Administration) where he met his first wife Sibyl. The military wouldn't accept him because of his kidney condition. However, he spent most of his working career as a civil servant with the military. He started as an aircraft carburetor mechanic and later became an aircraft engine inspector. At approximately age 35 he began studies of electronics and then worked at the Sacramento Signal Depot as an Electronic Technician. He continued his civil service career at Norton Air Force Base in San Bernardino, California where he was employed as an Atlas Missile Inertial Guidance Systems Analyst (trouble shooter.) Much of his time was spent at various missile sites throughout the USA.

In 1965 Earl began working for Naval Operations at Point Magu Naval Base as a Communications Electronic Technician. He was able to take advantage of a federal employee's early retirement program and retired in 1974 at age 55.

Earl and Tommi built their retirement home in Smith Valley, Nevada where he enjoyed doing church work and playing the accordion for various occasions. Torn and disconnected tendons and muscles in his shoulders prevented his playing the accordion any longer. Therefore he began playing the electronic keyboard. Music is his hobby and he now plays the keyboard for parties at the South Lyon County Hospital and the saxophone with a band at the Senior Center in Yerington.

Earl has played trumpet and saxophone in various dance bands as a part-time professional musician for most of his working years.

Some of his friends and acquaintances don't know his first name. He is known for the most part as "Ozzie." 2,3

Earl married Sibyl Milholland , daughter of John Harrison Milholland and Dorothy Alberta Brabb , on 24 Dec 1939 in Fresno, Fresno, California. The marriage ended in divorce. Sibyl was born on 16 Oct 1919 in Buhl, Twin Falls, Idaho.

General Notes: Source of birth, marriage, and children: Milholland family records.

Sibyl and Earl met at Hermosa Beach, CA where they were part of the National Youth Administration program which was started by President Roosevelt to help the youth of America. They married in 1939 on Christmas Eve in Fresno, CA.

The August 31st 1944 edition of the Reno Evening Gazette contained an article sub-titled Many Visiting in Mono Region. Bridgeport, Calif., Aug. 30 ... Mrs. Earl Osborne and children visited at the Jack Scierini home at the Point ranch during the week. Mrs. Scierini is a sister of Osborne's. Miss Jean Wendell of Los Angeles was also a guest of the Scierinis.

A later article said Frank Robinson was a business visitor in Reno Tuesday. He was accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Jack Scierini and sons Stanley and Jack, and Mrs. Earl Osborne and children. Mrs. Osborne and children, who have been visiting at the Scierini home for the past two weeks, continued to their home in Sacromento.

After they divorced, she moved the family to the San Diego area, where she did house work and ironing while her children were growing up.

Her hobby was square dancing and this is where she met and fell in love with Robert Walsh, born April 15, 1908. They married May 31, 1973 and moved to Sweetwater, NV, where they lived in a quaint cabin on the Sweetwater Ranch. After eight and a half wonderful years together, Bob died of cancer on November 18, 1981 in Reno, NV.

After spreading Bob's ashes on the hill above their cabin, she returned to El Cajon to care for her mother. In 1984, it became necessary to place her mother in a nursing home. Sibyl decided it was time to go to the Forester Haven in Mount Dora, Florida and now (1998) resides at the Forester Haven in San Fernando Valley, CA where she is closer to her children and grandchildren. 2

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Darlene Grace Osborne was born on 20 Jan 1941 in Fresno, Fresno, California. 4

         ii.   Daniel Earl Osborne was born on 30 Jul 1942 in Fresno, Fresno, California.

        iii.   Kathleen Renee Osborne was born on 4 Aug 1951 in Sacramento, , California.

Earl next married Tommi Doris Hansen , daughter of Iver Hansen and Hannah Beatrice Patterson , on 29 May 1955 in Roseville, , California. Tommi was born on 8 Apr 1920 in Sisseten, Roberts, South Dakota.

General Notes: This was prepared by Tommi Osborne in April 1998:

Born 8 Apr 1920 on the "Miller Ranch" - wherever that was. I've a few sketchy memories of hearing the adults talking of the Sioux Indians eating our big malamute dog. The ranch was across from the Indian reservation. I was impressed as only a three year old could be.

Other memories are of traveling in a huge car - Scripts-Booth I think. We left the dairy (and Indians) when I was five to "find a good climate for mother." Actually I believe we became the first members to the "moving of America" albeit early.

I have fine juvenile like memories of the hurricane in Alabama - about 1927, the "crash of 1929 when we became suddenly "poor" and attending several schools in one year.

The final move was to California from Texas in 1932. Six kids, two adults, two cars, one dog and one cat, all arriving safely except the coyote who stayed in the desert.

Graduated 1939 - a week after Joe and I were married. Gary was born 13 July 1940 - 8 lbs 14 oz of joy.

The war came along and Joe was drafted in June 1944. I went to work at De Witt Army General Hospital at Auburn, California. Joe was killed April 9, 1945 in Germany.

There were some "hell" years after 1945 but then in May 1952 I went back to work for the government at McClellan Air Force Base, Sacramento, California. To get my secret clearance I needed a birth certificate and sent for mine. No problem! Got a certificate saying I'd been born. 24 ½ years later when I retired and wanted to travel I found I had no name, just "girl baby" on the birth certificate. So, being chicken, I put "DORIS" on it so I'd not have to take a chance on losing my work record. (Remember, I worked for the government!!) So now I'm gonna add "TOMMI" as a first name - I've been that (Tommi) since 1945 and Doris since 1924.

Oz and I were married in 1955 and happiness began.

2. Sidney Phelps Osborne,1 son of Charles Barton Osborn and Emily Barton , was born on 9 Sep 1877 in Burlington, Calhoun, Michigan, died on 31 Oct 1948 in Fallon, Churchill, Nevada at age 71, and was buried in Yerington Cem., Lyon, Nevada. The cause of his death was Blockage in his intestinal track. Ancestral File Number: 2035-CX.

General Notes: The 1920 Federal Census for Lyon County, Spragg Precinct, West Mason Valley, Mason Town, enumerated on 31 Jan - 2 Feb 1920, lists Phelps Osborne with his wife Grace and children Ellen, Roy, and Earl. Phelps' occupation is farmer. (Interestingly, his mother listed as Emma Osborne is enumerated in the previous entry with her son-in-law Frank V. and daugher Alice Perry with their children George, Francis, and Grace - all three children were born in California.)

Source of children's birth and marriage: Family records maintained by Earl Richard Osborne.

According to Tommi Osborne his nickname was Pops. (Grace's was Momda.)

Sidney Phelps Osborne, known as Phelps or S.P. Osborne, was born in Michigan 9 September 1877 to Charles and Emily Osborn. Emily returned to Michigan to give birth to Phelps as she preferred to have her firstborn child in a more civilized environment than existed in Nevada at that time. (RCL note: for years I have tried to find the reason he was named Phelps. The only rationale I can find is that Phelps was a prominent family name in the Tekonsha area where his grandfather Cornelius lived in the mid 1800s. In fact, the 1850 census shows Cornelius lived very near a Phelps family. Sidney, of course, comes from his gradfather William Sidney Barton.)

Ranching was Phelp's primary occupation, but he did enjoy prospecting for gold. However, he never did strike it rich in that field.

Phelps and Grace Watson were married on 28 March 1912 and Ellen, Roy and Earl were born of this union.

Phelps was a Methodist and enjoyed attending church. He also enjoyed the social activities of the Mason Valley Improvement Club, a group of relatives and friends and neighbors who got together on Saturday nights to entertain and enjoy each others company. Phelps joined in many a skit or play, and also loved the dancing. The Mason Valley Improvement Club was unique in its time. No liquor was to be consumed in the building, a rule that was strictly enforced.

After Grace and Phelps were divorced, Phelps continued to ranch until WWII. During that time he worked at the Hawthorne Munitions Ordinance Station. He retired after the war but continued prospecting as a hobby.

Phelps died on 31 October 1948, leaving a legacy of love for the land and particularly for Mason Valley. He died of a blockage in his intestinal track.

Vernon Pursel provided a newspaper obituary dated November 4, 1948.

3. Grace Watson,1 daughter of David Bain Watson and Mary Ellen Jordan , was born on 28 Jul 1894 in Guelph, Wellington, Ontario, Canada, died on 7 Jun 1970 at age 75, and was buried in Yerington Cem., Lyon, Nevada.

General Notes: THIS IS THE EULOGY OF GRACE (MOMDA) WATSON OSBORNE DINI AS PREPARED BY TOMMI OSBORNE

MOMDA

Grace Watson was born July 28, 1894, one of fourteen children born to David B. Watson and Mary Ellen Watson (nee Jordan) at Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Grace's father, David B. Watson, was a Scottish dance master from Aberdeen, Scotland and a brewer by trade.

After the death of her husband in 1903, Mary Ellen remarried in 1906 and moved to the boom town of Rhyolite, Nevada. Grace, Freda and Edwin, the three youngest children accompanied them. Grace, as a young girl worked as an operator for the telephone company at Rhyolite.

When the Rhyolite boom was over the family moved to Tonapah, then to Mason Valley, Nevada and lived on what was known as the Morris Ranch at the southern end of the valley.

In Mason Valley Grace met and married a prosperous valley rancher Sidney Phelps Osborne. Children from this union were Ellen L. Osborne (Scierine, Large), Roy E. Osborne, and Earl R. Osborne. In later years, after a remarriage and divorce, Grace married Edward Dini, a local farmer. She cared for him through many years of multiple sclerosis. Grace died June 7, 1970.

These are the facts and figures of Grace's life; but they cannot reveal the life of Grace. She was truly the "blithe spirit" of the poem. He happiest moments were playing the piano. With no formal musical training Grace really brought life to any music she played. In her last years, and ill herself, she spent hours playing for those "poor old souls" (her words) at the convalescent home in Carson city. Momda (as all of her children called her) never acknowledged that her stay in the home was necessary, or permanent. With that attitude of course, she soon could come home to Yerington. She continued to visit and play for the people in the convalescent home as long as she could.

Momda was a singularly uncomplicated person. Direct, and loving, she didn't need to look for the best in people .. that was all she truly saw.

To see and hear Momda laugh was a joy in itself. As her grin grew wider her eyes disappeared and her laugh was so infectious that you found yourself joining her in laughter, even if you didn't know the joke.

Momda loved people and parties, but she was also a dedicated homemaker, caring for and serving those she loved all her days. Even in the worst times there was joy in living around Grace.

She loved and worked for the church in Yerington even though her attendance was irregular in her later years.

Momda died July 1970, but her loving joyous spirit lives on in her children.

-----

Family lore has it that there is Indian background in the current Osborne generations. There are several photographs of Grace in which there is a striking resemblance of Grace's facial structure to that of an Aleut or Eskimo (in the eye of the author, RCL). In a family photograph taken in about 1901, Grace is the only one with this appearance, but there is no question of the resemblance. Grace's son Roy shares this striking resemblance, especially in his earlier photographs. Even at the age of 76 there is no question as to the genetic influence. To a certain extent, her daughter Ellen also had this appearance. Her other son, Earl, has a slight American Indian appearance.

Surprisingly, photographs published in The Jordan/Stanchfield Family History, written by Linda Von Rueden Troolin and Jan Jordan Lokensgard in 1994, show both of Grace's parents have Indian facial appearances. This is especially amazing because David Bain Watson was born in Scotland

The Jordan/Stanchfield Family History written by Linda Von Rueden Troolin & Jan Jordan Lokensgard, 1994, Chapter III has:

12. GRACE (MOMDA) WATSON was born in Guelph, July 28, 1894. The information on Grace was written by her son Earl Osborne, and will be paraphrased or quoted in the following sentences. After her father's death her mother remarried a man named Jack Holly. She was one of three children who migrated from Canada, with her mother Mary Ellen and new step-father, to Rhyolite, Nevada, September 1, 1907. Shortly after they arrived there Jack Holly died. While in Rhyolite, Grace worked very hard to help her mother support the family. She stayed out of school the first year she was there to assisted her mother with her laundry business, by ironing. Grace helped to care for her two younger siblings Freda and Edwin. She also worked at the Miner's hospital her mother ran and was one o the first telephone operators in Rhyolite.

When her mother married a third time the family moved to Mason Valley and soon after Grace joined them. In Mason Valley Grace met and married a prosperous valley rancher, Sidney Phelps Osborne, March 28, 1912. He was born in Burlington, Michigan September 9, 1877 to Charles and Emily Osborne. Phelps' mother returned to Michigan to give birth to Phelps as she preferred to have he firstborn child born in a more civilized environment than existed in Nevada at that time.

Ranching was Phelps' primary occupation, but he enjoyed prospecting for gold but never did strike it rich. Phelps was a Methodist and enjoyed attending church. He was involved in the social activities of the Mason Valley Improvement Club, a group of relatives, friends, and neighbors, who got together on Saturday nights to entertain and enjoy each others company. Phelps joined in many a skit or play and also loved the dancing.

Grace and Phelps divorced, and Phelps continued to ranch until WW II.
During that time he worked at the Hawthorne Munitions Ordinance Station. He retired after the war but continued prospecting as a hobby. He died on Halloween of 1948, at Hobart Wray Hospital, Fallon, Nevada. He is interred at the Valley View Cemetery in Mason Valley, Nevada. He left a legacy of love for the land and particularly for Mason Valley.

Grace married Edward Dini, a local farmer. She cared for him through many years of multiple sclerosis.

Those are the facts and figures of Grace's life, but they cannot reveal the life of Grace. She was truly the "blithe spirit" of the poem. Her happiest moments were spent playing the piano. With no formal musical training, Grace really brought life to any music she played. In her last years, ill herself, she spent hours playing for "those poor old souls" (her words) at the convalescent home in Carson City. Momda as her children called her, never acknowledged that her stay in the home was necessary, or permanent. With that attitude, of course, she soon came home to Yerington. She continued to visit an play for the people in the convalescent home as long as she could.

As her grin grew wider, her eyes disappeared and her laugh was so infectious that you found yourself joining her laughter even though you didn't know the joke.

Momda loved people and parties, but she was also a dedicated homemaker, caring for and serving those she loved all of her days. Even in the worst of times, there was joy in living around Grace.

She loved and worked for the church in Yerington even though her attendance was irregular in her later years.

Momda died June 7, 1970 but her joyous spirit lives on in her children.

Grace married Sidney Phelps Osborne 1 on 28 Mar 1912 in So. Mason Valley, Lyon, Nevada. The marriage ended in divorce. Sidney was born on 9 Sep 1877 in Burlington, Calhoun, Michigan, died on 31 Oct 1948 in Fallon, Churchill, Nevada at age 71, and was buried in Yerington Cem., Lyon, Nevada. The cause of his death was Blockage in his intestinal track.

Grace next married Wildord Bauman about 1931 in Yerington, Lyon, Nevada. The marriage ended in divorce. Wildord was born about 1907 in , , Utah and died about 1985 in Probably Yerington, Lyon, Nevada about age 78.

General Notes: After he married Grace, he sharecropped on several ranches, including the Wise and Van Fleet ranches. Phelps Osborne even gave them several heads of livestock to get them started, but George was never was successful in Yerington.

Roy Osborne lived with his father and Ellen had married. Earl lived with his mother and George.

In about 1933 George and Grace moved to Montana after they sold their worldly possessions for $525. They made a down payment on a farm in Pleasant Valley. Unfortunately, before planting, all of the trees would need to be cleared before a crop could be planted. George didn't have time to do this and worked as a sheepherder. Earl cleared some of the trees for fuel. Later, George and Earl worked gathering and putting up hay. They used this money to move on to Logan, Utah where Earl went to high school for one semester. By mid-winter time, the family had moved back to Yerington.

Earl graduated from high school in Yerington in 1938. After working in the area for about a year, he moved out to start his own life.

George and Grace worked for Jack Sceirine (Ellen's husband) for some time and lived there on the ranch.

After Earl had married, George and Grace joined them in Fresno, California. Shortly thereafter, in about 1942, they separated. George and Grace separately returned to Yerington. They runited for a time, but by 1950 they had divorced.

George wandered around California following the fruit crops.

George remarried and had children. In fact, Drew Osborne married his daughter Rose.

There is an entry in the Social Security Death Index as follows:

GEORGE W BOWMAN 21 Aug 1906 09 Mar 1991 (not specified) (none specified) 530-05-2715 Nevada. However, Earl Osborne recalls George died while he was working at the Anaconda Mine that has been closed since at least the 70s, so this in all probability not the same person.

Grace next married Edward Dini about 1957 in Yerington, Lyon, Nevada. Edward was born on 28 Jan 1900 1 and died in Aug 1975 at age 75.

General Notes: Social Security Death Index: EDWARD DINI 28 Jan 0000 Aug 1965 (not specified) (none specified) 530-01-2397 Nevada. However, the Osborne family recalls he and Grace were married about 18 years, making his death in about 1975.

4. Charles Barton Osborn,1 son of Cornelius Osborn and Matilda Aldridge , was born on 1 Jan 1847 in Tekonsha Twp.Calhoun, Michigan, died on 10 Jan 1915 in So. Mason Valley, Lyon, Nevada at age 68, and was buried in Jan 1915 in Yerington Cem., Lyon, Nevada. Ancestral File Number: 2035-5W.

General Notes: Source of children's birth and marriage: Family records maintained by Earl Richard Osborne.

The following Bits of Historical Items About the Osborn(e) Family as told to Ruth Batchelder Fraias by her mother Emma Adel Osborn Batchelder:

A man by the name of Hod Raymond owned the ranch just south of Grandpa Osborn's (Charles Barton Osborn). Fred and Mary (Allum) Dunn lived on that ranch while I, Ruth, was growing up. After Dunns left there, the Fenili family lived there and two of the Fenili men died there with the flu in 1918-19. Dave Menesini now owns the ranch.

Grandpa Osborn willed his ranch to Uncle George Barton Osborn(e). It was later sold to Fidel Canales and is now owned by Herman Ogle. When Charles and Emily Osborn separated and were later divorced, she took the northern part of the ranch and built a two-story (story and a half) house, which burned about 1930, or thereabouts.

A Mr. Holland rented Hod Raymond's ranch. He was a brother to Mrs. Kaufman, who was the mother of Lulu Belle Kaufman Anderson, Georgianne Kaufman La Baron and Chester Kaufman. Mr. Raymond was a bachelor who worked around on various ranches when needed. About 1880 Grandpa Osborn was gone somewhere, and Grandma Osborn went to a church meeting of some kind. Phelps and George were left at home with Mr. Raymond to watch out for them. Emma and Alice were left at the Bill Baker place.

While the parents were away there was a big flood. A ditch (big) ran past the Raymond ranch to the Walker River, Mr. Raymond disappeared and his body was later found in the river channel, weighted down by irons. Mama thinks Uncle Phelps found him (the body) but is not sure of that. Uncle Phelps would have been about ten (years of age) then. Everyone thought that Mr. Holland killed Mr. Raymond, but nothing was ever proved. Emma heard afterwards that her father, Charles Barton Osborn, was suspected because he was jealous of Mr. Raymond's attention to her mother (Emily Barton Osborn). Mama (Emma) thinks this is untrue, because she does not think that Charles cared enough about Emily to be jealous at that time. Of course Emma was only about eight years of age so she would not know much about it, and would have been told less (as time went by).

Emma also heard later that Grandpa (Charles Barton Osborn) killed a man in California. He lived in California for about a year after his marriage (to Emily Barton) at Modesto. However, he was never convicted of any crime.

Mama thinks Aunt Alice was between one and two years old when Grandpa and Grandma separated, but she does not know when they were divorced.

Charles Osborn and Emily Barton were related in some way, but Mama does not know just how. They were children together in Michigan, and Charles was very fond of her brother Charles (Barton). He (Charles Osborn) had no middle name, so he took Barton as his middle name -- explaining the similarity in names. Charles spelled his name "Osborn" but Emily added the "e" to her name and the children's names when she divorced Charles.

Cornelius Osborn and his son Nelson: Cornelius was Charles Barton Osborn's father and Nelson was Charles' brother. They are supposed (credited) to have planted the first (successful) field of alfalfa in Mason Valley (small patches had been raised before). It was raised in the field directly west of the corrals at the (later) George Edmund Batchelder ranch, where Leland Burr now farms. Everyone (some persons) wanted Nelson to plow up the alfalfa because they were sure it would kill cattle - some cows had bloated on it.

Grandfather Cornelius Osborn had married four times. The second wife was the mother of Charles, Mary (Greely), and Nelson. The first wife was the mother of Frank and a daughter who's name Mama (Emma) does not know. She thinks that the girl became a nurse and lived at Hawthorne, Nevada (at one time). Cornelius second wife's name was Matilda - his third was Anne. He didn't know the fourth wife very well when he married her, and after they were married he found out that her name was Matilda Anne, so he just called her "Wife".

Charles was the youngest child.

Anne was always described as a "devil", but Matilda Anne was a very nice woman. She was an aunt of Carrie Conklin of Dayton (Nevada). Carrie married Fred C. Batchelder, a brother to George Edmund Batchelder who married Emma Adel Osborn.

Chas. B. Osborn found in: AZ, CA, ID, NV, 1850-1951 Marriage Index
Primary Person: The gender of Chas. B. Osborn is male.
Spouse: The gender of Emily Barton is female.
Marriage: The marriage date was Oct 19, 1876. The location was Gold Hill, Storey Co., Nevada.
Source Location: This record can be found in the marriage book at the County Courthouse located in Storey Co., NV in Volume A on Page 380.

Emily Barton (Osborn(e)) came to Mason Valley in 1875, to teach school.

She returned to Michigan for the birth of her first child, Phelps, in 1877.
She also visited her Michigan home about 1884 and brought back some bees to Mason Valley -- supposedly the queen bee first domesticated bees introduced into the valley. She always kept bees and Mama can remember that honey was used almost exclusively as a sweetener - sugar was kept in hand in a limited quantity for special occasions.

The 1880 Federal census for Mason Valley, Esmeralda, Nevada contains the following:

In 1876 Sidney Barton of Calhoun County, Michigan, granted 280 acres in Mason Valley, Esmeralda County, Nevada to Emily Barton of Mason Valley for the sum of $6,000. Its legal description was SW 1/4 of Section 10 and W 1/2 of SE 1/4 of Section 9 and SE 1/4 of SE 1/4 of Section 9, all in Township 12 North Range 25 East Mount Diablo Base. The transaction was notarized in Calhoun County by James M. French on 26 September 1876. However, it was not recorded in Lyon County, Nevada, Deed Book J, page 780 until June 30, 1886, apparently in conjunction with her divorce proceedings..

1880 Nevada census, Esmeralda County, Mason Valley, lists her brother, Wilbur F. 34, as living with them. He was born in Michigan. Their father is listed as born in Vermont and her mother in New York.

PIONEER RESIDENT OF MASON VALLEY IS DEAD

Yerington, Nev., April 9, - (Special)-One of Mason Valley's oldest pioneer residents, Mrs. Emily Barton Osborne, died suddenly last night at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Emma Batchelder, and funeral services will be held at the Methodist church here at l:30 p. M. Tuesday with Rev. Carol G. King officiating.

Mrs. Osborne's death occurred while she was walking from one room to another in the house, and was due to a heart attack. She had not been ill for over forty-five years and had been active in church and other work until the of her death.

Born in Burlington, Mich., on May 11, 1848, she received her early education in Michigan and after being graduated from college came West in 1875 to teach in Mason Valley. On October 17, 1876, she was married at Gold Hill, Nev., to Charles Osborne, and after spending a year in Modesto, Cal., they returned to Mason Valley to engage in ranching and were among the pioneer ranchers of the valley.

Mrs. Osborne was one of the builders of the Methodist church here and was a lifelong trustee of the church.

Mr. Osborne died several years ago. Four children, Sidney Phelps Osborne, George Osborne and Mrs. Emma Batchelder, all of Mason Valley and Mrs. Alice Perry of Reno, survive. She also leaves fourteen grandchildren.

A brother, Harry Barton, resides in Kalamazoo, Mich. She was a third cousin of Clara Barton.

(RCL note: I have been researching the Barton genealogy for well over a decade. I have not been able to make a connection to the Clara Barton line. From my research Clarissa (Clara) Harlowe Barton's ancestry is firmly traced to Edward Barton who immigrated to Salem, Massachusetts prior to 1639. Emily Barton's ancestry is firmly traced to Rufus Barton who was born in Warwick, Rhode Island in the 1740s. It is highly probable that this Rufus is the great great grandson of the immigrant Rufus Barton who first settled in New York City (New Amsterdam) about 1640, but because of the Dutch persecution of the Quakers, he removed in Rhode Island shortly thereafter. However, descendents of Wilbur Barton, Emily's brother, also claim a relationship to Clara Barton. Wilbur's great grand daughter Jane Townsend Antonetti recalls her mother telling of her mother and she visiting with Clara Barton in the early 1900s. In fact, Jane's mother was named after her. I'll leave it to the reader whether or not to claim a relationship to Clara Barton.)

THE WATSON FAMILY
as remembered by Thomas Watson
16 Jan 1965

This is near as I can remember, I am 77 years old. David Bain Watson came to Guelph Ontario Canada from Peterhead Aberdeenshire Scotland in his twenties. Later he met and married my mother, Mary Ellen Jordan, when she was about 17 years old. They bought a small house on Waterloo Road, third house from the Sleeman residence. They later bought the Rock Maple home and moved into it in the 1890's. I do not remember the exact year. The former owners of Rock Maple were the Chadwick family who were reasonably wealthy and built the tower to the house for observation purposes as it was rumored that they gambled considerably.
Father died Nov 19, 1903 and from this marriage there were fourteen children, eight boys and six girls. The property was left in trust for my mother as long as she lived. George Sleeman was the Executor. It was then sold and the moneys divided between the living children. After father died, on advice of my brother Albert, my mother built the large building attached to the old house for a pickle factory which turned out to be a dead horse as mother married again about that time and all the older children which was all the help she had namely, Mary, William Bain, Anna and myself, Tom, deserted the lines. We four left home to go on our own way and the balance of the family were left with mother. I believe September 1, 1907 mother sold out and rented the property and moved to the state of Nevada, U.S.
Shortly after that her second husband died and she (again) remarried and moved to Alberta, Canada. She took up a homestead there. Later, about 1933, she came to Guelph, Ontario, Canada and lived with my sister, Mrs. William Pinder, until her death.

General Notes: Was an orphan.

The Jordan/Stanchfield Family History written by Linda Von Rueden Troolin & Jan Jordan Lokensgard, 1994, Chapter II has:

MARY ELLEN JORDAN was born February 8, 1855 according to the bible entry and February 20, 1855 according to her family. We have conflicting information as to her place of birth. Some say it was in Guelph, her daughter Freda said Peel Township, others say it was Maryborough Township. She was the third child of William and Rosanna Jordan.

Like her brothers before her, we have very little history of her early years. Her daughter, Freda, with whom Linda Troolin corresponded for ten years, said when the Jordan marriage ended her mother, Mary Ellen, was placed with a family named Nolan. She was about six years old at the time. The family was alcoholic and abusive to Mary Ellen so at the tender age of eight she ran away. She supported herself by working for different families. She probably did not have time for school, since she supported herself from such an early age, because she could not read or write.

When she was a teenager, working at the home of a brewery owner named Sleeman, in Guelph, Ontario, she met her future husband, David Bain Watson. He was very ill and staying at the Sleeman home. Mary Ellen helped to take care of him. During his delirium he thought Mary Ellen was his mother. The couple fell in love as she nursed him back to health. He was born June 12, 1842 and was from Peterhead, Aberdeenshire , Scotland . David worked for Mr. Sleeman as a cellarman. He played the violin and had a great love for music. David was also a Scottish dance master.

Mary Ellen married at age 17, March 4, 1873 according to the bible, or February 24, 1873 according to a record of Grace and Leslie Young. She and David became parents to fourteen children, twelve of whom survived to adulthood.
The following information was given by Mary Ellen's son, Tom Watson, and granddaughter, Freda Fox: They first lived in a small house on Waterloo Road, third house from the Sleeman residence. In the 1890's they bought Rock Maple or the Chadwick Farm as it was sometimes called. Rock Maple was built by a man called Gentleman Jackson and it was copied after his former home in England.
It was also on Waterloo Road. The former owners of Rock Maple, the Chadwicks were fairly wealthy family and built the tower as an addition to the large fourteen room, six bedroom house. It has been said that they gambled a great deal and wanted the tower for observation purposes. The handsome Watson family picture was taken at Rock Maple, Christmas of 1902, less than a year before David Watson died.

Ralph Edie wrote the following about Mary Ellen and it has been paraphrased here. Mary Ellen was a wonderful seamstress. She also hooked rugs and was an extraordinarily fast knitter. She could even knit in the dark! She hand knit wool sweaters, stockings, scarves and mittens for her children and underwear for her husband. When the seventh child arrived Mary Ellen told her husband she could no longer knit underwear for him. After that, much to his disappointment, he had to wear "store bought" ones.

David had heart problems and fainted easily. However, his death came as a result of blood poisoning caused by either the scratch of a rusty nail or by a blister on his toe that became infected. Both stories have been given as the cause. Freda Edie had written, " David Watson died from blood poisoning which started from a blister on his toe and got infected from a colored sock. The Dr.
put cuts in his leg to bleed him, but they couldn't stop the infection so he died 17 days after he first got the infection". The doctors in those days believed that releasing the bad blood would help to cure people. Unfortunately in David's case they bled him to death. He died November 19, 1903. His obituary follows:

DEATH OF MR. DAVID WATSON

On Tuesday morning occurred the death of Mr. David B. Watson, who passed away at the General Hospital at the age of 63 years. He was a native of Aberdeenshire, Scotland and had resided in this country for nearly forty years.
He was in the employ of Mr. Sleeman as cellarman for thirty three or thirty four years. Retiring three or four years ago, he has since lived on the Chadwick farm, Waterloo Road. He leaves a widow and a family of six sons and six daughters the youngest being four weeks old. *This must be a mistake because Edwin, the baby, was born in 1900. Mr. Watson was a man of the strictest integrity and in the words of an old friend, "honest as the sun"; quiet and genial in disposition, had not an enemy in the world. He was a member of Reidance (blurred so may not be the correct spelling) Lodge and Wellington Encampment, I.O.O.F., and was a charter member of the local lodge of the K.O.T. M., in which his is the first death. The cause of death was blood poisoning, from which he had been ill for a little over a week.

After David's death the property was left in trust for Mary Ellen as long as she lived. George Sleeman, David's former employer, was the executor. The Watson's owned some houses that they rented and other land. Some of their properties were sold and the money divided between the children.

At the advice of her son Albert, Mary Ellen started a pickle factory. She was well known for her delicious pickles and even hired people to come to Rock Maple to help her can them for sale. Thinking she would be able to support herself and the children this way, she had a large building erected which was attached to the house and enlisted some of her children as help, Mary, William Bain, Anna, and Tom. The factory was a white elephant. Freda Fox remembered, "Grandma lost the money grandpa left her because she invested it in the pickle factory. Never made a pickle, and the equipment was seized and all that was left was the four walls and a huge hole about one third of the first floor, where they took out the boiler. She did receive the rent from the house and the lot in town, the small farm at the edge of town and Rock Maple. When Uncle Will died she received a monthly allotment from the government." Relatives have said that Mary Ellen did not have a knack for business and invested poorly. The children left to make their own lives in the world after the pickle factory closed. Apparently it really never even got started in the new building, before it folded. However, because she had sold so many pickles from Rock Maple, previously, it was dubbed "The Pickle Factory".

Freda Fox said the people who rented Rock Maple did not take care of it so Mary Ellen's daughter, Nellie Pinder and her family, moved in. Later Lizzie Ball, another of Freda's daughters lived there. Lizzie was Freda Fox's mother.

After the pickle factory closed, Mary Ellen had fallen in love with a Guelph man by the name of Jack Holly. Because of a dispute with his children he left Guelph for Rhyolite, Nevada. Mary Ellen followed him there taking her youngest three children with her, Grace, Freda and Edwin. This was September 1, 1907. Some relatives say she married Jack Holly in 1906, before she left Guelph, others say it was after she went to Nevada.

The following history was written by Grace Watson: We lived in Rhyolite, the metropolis of the Bullfrog District, from 1907 until 1911. The big silver boom had quieted down and Rhyolite was just a dusty, placid town of hard-working miners.

On the main street were several blocks of businesses. The bank was an impressive concrete building with apartments upstairs. The Porter Brothers had general store in another concrete building. We bought dress material and groceries there, and also got groceries from Cook's grocery store. There was one ice cream parlor and many saloons. There was a telephone- telegraph office, a bookstore, hotels and boarding houses. The red light district was one block off main street. A two story concrete school house was built within a year of our arrival. Houses were small but many people had planted trees and quite a few had lawns struggling in the dry desert sand.

The small house my step-father had rented for us had porches front and back a cellar, and an outhouse. We were pretty crowded when everybody was home.
Mama and Jack Holly slept on a roll- down bed in the front room. Eddie had a cot in the kitchen. Freda and I shared a cot in the clothes closet. I wouldn't have minded the smallness and in the summertime having the heat, but having clothes hanging right above us in there did make it an oppressive place to be.

I stayed out of school our first year in Rhyolite, helping Mama with the washing and taking care of the younger kids. I specialized in ironing. Mama said I was awfully fast at it. My ironing board was a plank covered with cotton batting, balanced between a table and a chair. I used six irons at a time, pressing with one while the other five heated on the stove.

I did housecleaning for neighbors at two bits an hour. For awhile I worked regularly at Mrs. Wieburg's boarding house, helping her with cooking and washing up after meals. I didn't like the job for a couple of reasons. She never used leftovers, so each evening she threw out enough food to have fed my family. It went into a garbage pit in the back yard that attracted cats. Some of them had their kittens in the yard or the cellar, handy to this wonderful source of food Mrs. Wittenburg made me drown them by putting them in a ten gallon can of water

Jack Holly died while working at the Tonopah and Tidewater Railroad Yard, lifting heavy machinery off freight cars. The exertion was too much for him.

We were so bad off at that time we had to belittle ourselves and borrow money from a neighbor lady to buy me a pair of shoes so I'd be presentable at the funeral.

Thereafter Mama had to work harder than ever. She got a job as a janitor at the bank. A little later she took over the Miner's Hospital. She did well enough to let the bank keep her janitor's wages in a savings account. That little nest egg never hatched. The bank closed up and she lost all that she had saved.

I quit school to work too. We always did washing and ironing. I did housecleaning and I guess that is how I got my job at the telephone company working for Mrs. Munger. Her husband managed the AT & T office and she was the switchboard operator. She recommended me when the job got too heavy for her alone.

I was paid $45 a month when I began, at age 15. I worked four or five hours each afternoon-- sometimes alone sometimes with Mrs. Munger. The phone office was nn a one story concrete building. In back was the telegraph office, a store room, and a place for the telephone system's power supply. The telephones were powered by huge electrical batteries. On a hot day, and we had plenty of them, we'd open the doors front and back, and let the wind sweep through.

My mother's hospital workday routine was long and tiring. Mornings she collected and delivered laundry. In the afternoon she heated water for washing.
In between times she was nursing the patients, making beds and shopping. Mama made dinner while I worked at the phone company. We bought vegetables from Los Angeles, lettuce, tomatoes, radishes and potatoes. We had a standing order for
once a week shipment. Meat, bread, dry goods and canned things we bought in town. Sometimes we made our own bread.

My days were busy too. In the morning I did housework around the hospital. In the late morning I began making lunch for the patients. They usually got a hot meal, meat, potatoes, a vegetable and dessert. For dessert I made cakes or jello or served fruit. I worked in the telephone office until six or seven o'clock. When I came home I ate dinner and then ironed for several hours.

One July fourth was clouded. My girlfriend Marie Wexelburger and I took a train at 6 am to a picnic at Springdale. Getting up before dawn to dress Freda and Ed in the dark had given me a sick headache. Marie realized on the train that the shoes she had put on in the dark didn't match. So she hid out all day and I hid with her. There was a dance after the picnic lunches were eaten. I learned to dance while I was babysitting. I had gone to a schoolhouse dance as nursemaid for the babies and children too young to leave home. One of the bookstore woman's sons talked me into a few minutes away from the nursery, and showed me how to do a little two step dance.

My only other social activity was church. I taught Sunday school, sang in the choir, and played Piano at services. I never felt quite at ease with the preacher because he seemed awful anxious to get me alone somewhere.

The most common animals were burros. Miners left them at the outskirts of town when they came in for the day, and these burros got pretty lively in mating season. A bunch of them, 18 or 20, would come roaring through town, trampling of porches, leaping low fences, and knocking pedestrians aside.

Maude was a burro who stood out from the rest because of her unusually sociable ways. She'd poke her head through the swinging doors of the saloon and wait until some animal lover bought her a beer. Trouble was, she made the round and the saloons were full of animal lovers. When she got drunk she would lie down in the street and sleep it off.

I had a few bad times at the hospital. One winter we had a portable coal-oil heater in one fellow's room. I heard him yelling and found the whole machine in flames. Somehow I grabbed it and ran outside without getting burned.

There were several other calamities too. Once there was a big cloudburst over Rhyolite and the rain swept everything loose before it. On one of the more prosperous streets, water came in the back doors and out the front, leaving mud on the carpets and ruining the wallpaper. It filled our cellar. We had canned goods stored down there and when the water went down the labels had come off the cans. We had to guess the contents and had some quite interesting mealtime combinations that way.

Mama's laundry business got her another husband, Richard Fisher. He dealt faro at the Sixty-Six Club and was a sharp dresser. I admired the clothes mama washed for him, pastel-colored, silk, knit underwear, and silk shirts.
In 1910 he married Mama and joined us at the hospital. Maybe Mama didn't approve of his job as a gambler, anyway he quit the club and signed on at the Shoshone Mine processing ore.

Our four years at Rhyolite came to an end when Mr. Fisher decided to move to Tonopah. I was happy with my job as chief telephone operator at $75 a month, so I stayed, boarding with a family I knew. Letters from Mama said the high altitude in Tonopah made her sick. After six weeks I quit my job to join Mama in Tonopah. I'd been in Tonopah about six weeks when we moved to the Morris Ranch in Mason Valley. Mama wanted to get back to farming. *Mason Valley is now known as Yerington.

*Grace was married in Mason Valley in March of 1912 and remained in Nevada all her life.

********

On April 22, 1912 Richard Fisher filed for land in Alberta. The following exerpt was written by Ralph Edie: Two brothers of Mary Ellen Watson Fisher, Tom and Dan Jordan had already settled in the Sprucefield district and encouraged the Fishers to come north and file on nearby homestead land. The family was met at the Fort Saskatchewan railway station by Dan Jordan with a wagon drawn by a team of oxen.

Two days were required to travel by ox team from Fort Saskatchewan to Sprucefield. Along the way the road gradually deteriorated to a mere trail through the bush. The road was characterized by numerous mud holes in which at times the wagon wheels became mired in mud and water up to the axles. Progress slowed to a standstill and the oxen were obliged to strain every muscle to inch forward. Commonly the road detoured around sloughs but along certain boggy stretches, where it was impossible to detour, the road had been made passable by surfacing it with logs laid together across the trail.

At Sprucefield the summer of 1912 seemed to be unusually cool and Edwin wore his sheepskin coat most of the time to keep warm. A neighbor, Emmilia Flaska remembered, "While their new log house was being built on the homestead, four posts were set up with a canopy above, under which Mary Ellen cooked for the men who were building the house." While neighbors were helping to build their two story log house - still standing on NE 24-60-20-4, a log slipped and broke the neck of Richard Fisher, and he died within hours.

************

Mary Ellen's fourth husband was Mr. Heyland. Since Richard Fisher died the summer of 1912, she probably married him in 1913 or 1914. Emilia Flaska Warak recalled, "Mary Ellen later married Richard H. Heyland who was related to the Pete Knight family and had a homestead not far from Knights. They met when Mary Ellen attended Mrs. Knight at the birth of one of her babies." Heyland lived at Mary Ellen's homestead after they were married. He was described as red-faced and bow legged. Edwin Watson used to tease his step-father by bowing his legs and walking behind Heyland in that fashion when he wasn't looking.

Emilia Flaska Warak wrote, "The couple broke up when Mary Ellen and her husband were on their way to a dance at the home of Beryld Hemphill's mother. (This would have been after August of 1915 or before Edwin's 16th birthday in 1916) They stopped at Levin's where a group was gathering to go to the dance together. While there, Mary Ellen learned that her husband was instrumental in getting Ed Watson who was only 15, to enlist. The couple had a falling out and he went home, (next farm north) while Mary Ellen went on to the dance. He gathered up all his belongings, including some sheep, and left, returning to his own farm, probably SW 59- 20-4. He must have died not too long after that."

After Richard Heyland's death, she married Matt Laiture, August 8, 1918. Matt could speak no English and was 52 years old. Matt was a bachelor, hunter and trapper from Finland. He built a log cabin several miles north of the homestead where Mary Ellen lived. The cabin was built without a single nail. The logs were all put together with wooden pegs. The door was on wooden hinges made from lumber hewn by axe, as was the floor, wooden bedstead and table.
Matt had tanned furs sewn together as blankets on the bed. Neither Matt or Mary Ellen wanted to leave their own homes so after they married they never lived together for any length of time.

Mary Ellen was 63 when she married Matt, her fifth and final husband. Her daughter Freda made her wedding dress and stood up for her at the wedding along with grandma Flaska. Rev. Artemas Seller married the couple.

Emilia Flaska Warak said, "Matt left Mary Ellen some time later, Mary Ellen thinking the Finns had lured him away. She being thoughtful and kind used to invite Finnish families to visit, just to make Matt feel more at home. They always remained friends. He would stop at her house to or from a trip to the store or P.O. and she'd give him a good meal or lunch and walk part way home with him. She liked and missed him but would not humiliate herself by asking him to come back. He died at Bragges and Mary Ellen sent Ed Watson and Colin Edie to Bragges to bring his belongings to her. She sold them and his farm and sent the money to his children." Years later one of Mary Ellen's grandchildren asked if she would ever get married again. Her reply was, "No! The darn things just die anyway." Mary Ellen had married and buried her last four husbands in a period of eleven years. She probably felt it was enough heartache to last anyone a lifetime.

Although it was reported in Dorothy's book, by Lela Robinson, that Dan Jordan was killed by being cut in half by a saw blade, recently uncovered information disputes this. Other people thought it may have been one of Mary Ellen's last two husbands who met their demise this way, but this doesn't seem to be the case either. Earlier, Mary Ellen mentions her husband Mattie Laiture being ill and not able to do much, so he may have died from natural causes.
The most likely explanation for the mix up comes from Ralph Edie who wrote, "I am sure that if any of my mother's step-fathers or uncles had died being cut in half in a saw accident, I would have heard about it. There was a man by the name of Henry Van Manen who was cut in half by a buzz saw near Waskateneau, Alberta in the 1930's, but it was no relation to us."

The next paragraph is taken from a piece written by Ralph Edie: Early years on the homestead were a lesson in survival. The family always had a large vegetable garden, a few cows and some chickens, and together with wild berries and meat from wild rabbits, deer and fish, and moose they eked out a living. One of Mary Ellen's prized possessions was a large Singer sewing machine with foot pedal, ordered from Eton's catalogue from Winnipeg and transported by boat up the North Saskatchewan River to Pine Creek Landing. In later years Mary Ellen gave this sewing machine to Freda Edie who continued to use it many years after she married.

***********

Life on this frontier was not all work. Freda Edie said that Mary Ellen had weekly dances at her home. The family greatly enjoyed the music, fun, and food that became a regular event.

The last years of Mary Ellen's life from about 1923 until her death of pneumonia, January 4, 1944 she spent living between two of her daughters, Grace in Nevada and Nellie in Guelph. It was during one of her stays, in Guelph, in the mid 30's, that her brother James' two children, Mary Jordan Linehan and Jim Jordan along with Jim's wife Lena and daughter Bertha, came to visit. We have several pictures from their trip. Mary Ellen also made at least two trips to Minnesota by train to visit her brother James. One visit must have been about 1929 because James had already had his stroke and died within a year. By the pictures taken during that trip it is obvious that James has had a stroke.

Freda Fox wrote, "Grandma loved working in the soil, had a green thumb and grew beautiful flowers and the best vegetables, even celery. She loved being outdoors - was out as much as possible. Could knit anything without patterns, socks, sweaters, caps, even children's dresses. She drove my mother (Lizzie) crazy keeping her in wool pieces, like men's longjohns, dresses etc. as she would cut them into strips and braid and hook rugs. The underwear had to be dyed so it seemed the boiler was always on the stove, dying these strips for the rugs."

MRS. MARY LAITURE PASSES IN HOSPITAL

Following a brief illness Mrs. Mathew Laiture 88, passed away at St. Joseph's Hospital yesterday.

The former Mary Ellen Jordan, Mrs. Laiture was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Jordan, and was born in Guelph where she resided the greater part of her life.

8. Cornelius Osborn, son of Stephen Osborn and Martha Barton , was born about 1814 in Lansingburg, Rensselaer, New York, died in 1879 in , , Nevada about age 65, and was buried in Yerington Cem., Lyon, Nevada. The cause of his death was Brights Disease (Kidney failure).

General Notes: Little is know about Cornelius during his childhood and youth. Earl Osborne has an intuition that Cornelius was raised in the Quaker faith. In 1998 I reviewed a microfilm about Lansingburgh and did see there was a Quaker cemetery there. There were both Bartons and Osborns buried there, but I didn't trace them directly to our known family. I do plan to revisit this microfilm sometime in the future.

His parents apparently left Lansingburgh and moved further west to Monroe County, New York while he was still young. There is no record of Cornelius there, but his mother and younger brother Rufus are mentioned in real estate records.

According to History and Directory of Calhoun County, ca 1870, page 198, in the spring of 1836, Rufus and Cornelius Osborn came to the place (Tekonsha), stopping for the time being in the village. The Osborn brothers came from Rochester, N.Y., with a horse team, and were fourteen days making the trip; eleven from Rochester to Detroit, and three from Detroit to Marshall, where they arrived May 3, 1836. The fourth, they came to Tekonsha, and looked out their lands, and Cornelius then took a horse, and started for Bronson, via Marshall, to locate their places. The seventh, they bought a plow, and started for their place. The eighth, they went to breaking up. February 8, 1837, Rufus Osborn, with his widowed mother and three sisters, moved to the place which he now owns, on section 29. Although he has been disabled from infancy, and has labored hard, having, by his own exertions, cleared over three hundred acres of timber, he still possesses remarkable powers both of body and mind, has quite a large family about him, and resides on the old place.

The following are from various land records recorded in Calhoun County:

On October 25, 1836, Cornelius Osborn of Calhoun County, Michigan purchased
On January 26, 1837, Cornelius Osborn and his wife Deborah of Calhoun County, Michigan sold
On March 2, 1837, Cornelius Osborn and his wife Debby of Tekonsha, Calhoun County, Michigan sold to Martha Osborn
On March 22, 1837, Cornelius Osborn and Deborah his wife of Calhoun County, sold
On April 17, 1837, Cornelius Osborn and Debby his wife of Calhoun County, sold
On August 12, 1837, Cornelius Osborn of Marshall, Calhoun County, purchased
On August 18, 1837, Cornelius Osborn of Marshall, Calhoun County, and Deborah his wife sold
On June 20, 1838, Cornelius Osborn of Tekonsha, Calhoun County, and Deborah his wife sold
On January 1, 1842, Cornelius and Matilda his wife of Tekonsha, Calhoun sold

The Automated Archives New York 1850 census indicates there was a Cornelius Osborne on page #150 in the Monroe County, Greece Township. It also shows Stephen Osborne on page 56 in the Monroe County, Parma Township.

He is listed in the 1850 Michigan census as a farmer with real estate value of $2,000.

History of Calhoun County, Michigan, 1877, L. H. Everts & Co., on page 148 under Tekonsha Township mentions that the first blacksmith-shop in the village was started by Cornelius Osborn, who now lives in the State of California. He did the first horse-shoeing in town, having only a nail-hammer to work with.

In June of 1997, after doing some genealogical research in Marshall, we drove through Tekonsha. The city limits sign said "Tekonsha, the little town with the big heart."

According to Osborn lore, Cornelius walked from Michigan to Mason Valley, Nevada in 1864. However, according to an obituary of his son Charles, Cornelius and his family moved to Illinois about 1858 for about two years. Then, in 1860, Cornelius, Nelso, Mary, Charles and a number of relatives crossed the plains to California by ox team. Some lore says they lived in Modesto, others say near there in Angels Camp near Sonora. When Charles was 20 (about 1867) the family moved to Silver City, Nevada.

The Nevada Directory for 1868-1869 lists Cornelius Osborne as a blacksmith in Silver City, Nevada. (Coincidentally, this directory also includes the following:
C. H. Osborne Divide st., Gold Hill, Nevada miner
Henry Osborne Main st., Gold Hill, Nevada mill wright )

Charles thought the family lived in Silver City until 1872; however, Cornelius is listed in 1870 Nevada census as a black smith in Lyon county.

In the 1875 Nevada state census C. Osborne is listed as age 61, born NY, farmer, residing in Esmeralda County.

The following are notes provided by Emma Batchelder in the 1960s:

Cornelius Osborn was born about 1815. He married and fathered three children of whom Frank was one. I don't know who his wife was or whether she died but Cornelius later married Matilda who bore him three children, Nelson, Mary, and Charles. When Charles was 13 years old Cornelius left his wife in Michigan and crossed the plains with Nelson and Charles, I don't know about Mary. They came to California for a while (the Angeles Camp area I suppose) and later came to Virginia City, Nevada. He had a cook by the name of Ann (Anna) whom he married.

Ann was so mean that Nelson dared not go into the dining room unless other men were present. Cornelius finally divorced her.

He then met a lady whom he married within a short time. After they were married he asked her her name and she said "Matilda Ann(e)" - he always called her "wife".

Cornelius sold his business in Virginia City and went to Mason Valley. He homesteaded all the land he could by law and then had his children homestead more.

Mary came west and became the wife of A. L. Greely. They homesteaded what is now known as the Dave Borsini ranch.

Previous to this Mary had married a man in Michigan by the name of Wartout. They became parents of a daughter born in Michigan; however, she died there in her early years. Her name was May.

Cornelius homesteaded the ranch where Dr. Jenkins lives (four miles south of Yerington on the highway). He died in the house Dr. Jenkins had torn down (1960s).

Other holdings were the present De Andre, Shehady, Freitas, Ralph Pursel, and Emma Batchelder ranches.

Cornelius homesteaded the ranch owned by Emily B. Osborne in the name of her father, Sidney Barton.

Charles Barton Osborn homesteaded the ranch where I (Emma) was born and later deeded it to my brother, George Barton Osborne.

Nelson Osborn homesteaded the present Strosnider and Francesconi ranches.

Cornelius raised sheep.

Following the death of Cornelius his widow Mrs. Matilda Roach Osborn, sold the holdings with the largest track being bought by Albert J. Barrett.

The following is from Jessie Conklin Montegue, Monticristo, Santa Barbara, California.

Matilda Roach Osborn, widow of Cornelius Osborn was the aunt to Carrie Conklin who married Fred Charles Batchelder, brother to George Edmund Batchelder.
Fred and Carrie made their home in Petaluma, California most of their married life.

Mrs. Mary Bowland Shaw of Reno, Nevada, the former Mary Shirley, was a close friend of Carrie's mother, Mrs. L. Conklin and also of Matilda Osborn.

Pease, a resident of San Francisco, California was a cousin to Cornelius Osborn.

Nelson Osborn was the father of a daughter who died - and of Myra Osborn and Harry Osborn.

Last address of Myra Osborn who married Leo Smith was 315 South Pine Street, Lansing, Michigan.

Sidney Barton and Cornelius Osborn were second cousins.

Charles Osborn and Emily Barton were 3rd cousins.

Tidbits mentions that Cornelius Osborn was a wheel wright or blacksmith at Virginia City, Nevada during the gold rush mining days in that town. He took up land in his and his children's names in Mason Valley. The land included from Keema Lane to the Old Plummer place, excluding the Joe Mathews farm. It included the Batchelder, Old Mr. Barrett, DeAndre, Wise or Glock farms.

Nelson at one time lived on the Old Plummer place between Mianchi and Isaac Strosnyder farms.

Cornelius also took up land for Sidney Barton (Emily Osborn's father). Sidney came west to this land. We know this land as "Grandma's" Emily Osborne. It includes the place where she lived and the Lancaster farms.

Michigan Pioneer Collections, Vol III, 1879-80, Calhoun County Indians, page 369 has the following:

Statement of Cornelius Osborn.

Cornelius Osborn, of Mason Valley, Nevada, says that about thirty years ago he knew an Indian chief called "Leather-nose"; he, with a small band of Indians, ran to Canada when the Indians of this section were removed west. Mr. Osborn gives it as his recollection that Leather-nose and an Indian trader of Coldwater whose name was Marsh got the payment due the Indians from the government, and it is said they never paid it over; and when the Indians were removed, Marsh, who had the contract for the removal, let Leather-nose and his followers go to Canada for presents before going west, and they failed to return in time to go; and for many years Leather-nose, with his little band of forty, was seen at several places in our country in search of Fech and Barnes. Leather-nose was a terror to all the children of the country; he is said to have killed his son's squaw, a beautiful person, for stealing away his keg of whiskey when he with some of his comrades were having a drunken row, and that she took the keg of whiskey to Osborn's and then went back to the tent near Mr. Holt's house on the bank of Nottawa lake, Calhoun county, Mich., and in the night old Leather-nose came up, and finding the daughter asleep, cut her head off with a single blow, and her remains were buried near the old home of Mr. Holt near Nottawa lake, in Tekonsha township, Calhoun county. Tekonsha was an old Indian town of two or three hundred Indians.

The 1880 Mortality Schedule for NV indicates Cornelius Osborn died in Jun 1879 at age 64 in Esmeralda County of Brights disease. He had been a farmer.

On Memorial Day in 1995 we visited Cornelius's grave in the Yerington Cemetery in Mason Valley, Nevada.

4       iii.   Charles Barton Osborn (born on 1 Jan 1847 in Tekonsha Twp.Calhoun, Michigan - died on 10 Jan 1915 in So. Mason Valley, Lyon, Nevada)

         iv.   Cornelius Osborn was born on 15 Feb 1852 in , , Michigan, died on 7 Sep 1853 at age 1, and was buried in Windfall Cemetary, Tekonsha, Michigan.

Cornelius next married Ann .

General Notes: See notes by Emma Batchelder. She indicated that shortly after his arrival in Virginia City, Cornelius had an eat house and a blacksmith shop. He had a cook by the name of Ann ( Anna ) whom he married. Ann was so mean that Nelson dare not go into the dining room unless other men were present. Cornelius finally divorced her.

Cornelius next married Matilda Anne Roach . Matilda was born about 1815 in , , Massachusetts.

General Notes: The 1875 Nevada state census lists M. J. Osborne, age 63, born in MA, housewife, residing in the household of C. Osborne in Esmeralda County.

1880 Nevada census, Esmeralda County, Mason Valley, lists Matilda as head of household and farming. She was born about 1815 in Massachusetts.

Her niece, Carrie Conklin, is listed with her. Carrie is listed as teaching school. She was born in Illinois in about 1862. Her father is listed as born in Ohio and her mother as born in New York.

Both of Matilda's parents are listed as born in Massachusetts. 9


9. Matilda Aldridge, daughter of Nelson Aldrich and Elizabeth Hooker , was born about 1823 in , , New York.

General Notes: Apparently Cornelius had two separate wives named Matilda. The Matilda to whom he was married in Michigan was born in New York about 1823 according to the 1850 Calhoun County, Michigan federal census.

The Florence Ellis material provides the surname for Matilda, Aldridge. This was also confirmed in July 2001 while at the Calhoun County Court House in Marshal, MI. The death record for her son Nelson David Osborn indicates his mother was Matilda Eldridge. (The History of Calhoun County only mentions a Mary Eldridge as a member of the Regular Baptist Church of Tekonsha which was organized July 19, 1838. A George Eldridge is mentioned in Battle Creek.)

While in Calhoun County I attempted to find Matilda's parents and ancestry. From the above it is already confusing whether her surname was Aldridge or Eldridge. After researching in Marshall, Tekonsha, and Battle Creek libraries and the county court house, there was no absolute proof of her ancestry.

I had found that Cornelius' wife Debbora had died on April 5, 1840 and that Cornelius and wife Matilda had recorded a property transaction on January 1, 1842. Therefore, Matilda must have married sometimes between those dates. Matilda would have been about eightteen years old then.

While reviewing the 1840 federal census for Calhoun County, Tekonsha Township, I found Cornelius Osborn on page 174 and his mother Martha Osborn on page 176. Nestled between them on page 175 was a Nelson Aldrich. Since Cornelius and Matilda named their first child Nelson Charles Osborn on February 5, 1842, Nelson Aldrich caught my attention.

The 1840 census showed that Nelson Aldrich was born in NY and had a boy and three girls under five, two boys between 10 and 15, a boy and a girl between 15 and 20, and a girl between 20 and 30. Nelson was between 40 and 50. No apparent wife was listed. The 15 to 20 year old girl could very possibly be Matilda. For now, I will assume this is true and list Nelson Aldrich as Matilda's father.

The Florence Ellis material indicates that Charles B. Osborn moved with his parents to Illinois about 1858 and resided there fore two years. The text then indicates Cornelius, Charles, Nelson, Mary, and a number of relatives crossed the plains to California. There is no further mention of Matilda. However, after the family settled in Nevada, Earl Osborne says Cornelius married another Matilda. 10

Matilda married Cornelius Osborn . Cornelius was born about 1814 in Lansingburg, Rensselaer, New York, died in 1879 in , , Nevada about age 65, and was buried in Yerington Cem., Lyon, Nevada. The cause of his death was Brights Disease (Kidney failure).

10. William Sidney Barton, son of Nathan Sisson Barton and Lucinda , was born about 25 Apr 1815 in , , New York and died on 13 Feb 1883 in Burlington, Calhoun, Michigan about age 67. The cause of his death was Cancer of stomach.

General Notes: Source: 1880 Nevada census for children Wilber F. and Emma indicated father was born in Vermont and mother was born in New York.

However, a page entitled Tidbits, dated 12-25-89 and included in an Osborn history prepared by Earl and Tommi Osborne, indicates the following:

Sidney Barton was born in Skene Attles, New York. He married Louisa Olds who was born in Wells, New York. (RCL note: Skene Attles is now spelled Skaneateles. Likewise, Louisa was very probably born in Wells, VT, not Wells, NY.)

As mentioned elsewhere, Cornelius Osborn homesteaded property in Mason Valley, Nevada in the name of Sidney Barton. On 26 September 1876, Sidney and Louisa Barton of Calhoun County, Michigan, granted this property (consisting of 260 acres) to Emily Barton of Mason Valley, Esmeralda County, Nevada, for $60.00 gold coin.

Alice Louisa Osborn Perry wrote the following:

The mother of Louisa Olds was full blooded Spanish - hence the descendants had large brown eyes and olive skin.

None were very prosperous until late in life. Physiques were short and fat. (Many) had good educations. Eben was a lawyer, Harry and Emma taught schools (Emily sometimes known as Emma was really Emily Barton Osborn(e)).

They were long lived but had leg troubles. Sidney Barton had one leg (shorter than the other) shortened with sciataca in his forties. Wilber was on crutches before he died.

The 1850 Michigan Calhoun County federal census taken 19 July 1850 for the Town of Marshall indicates the following:

Page 278, house 252, family 265:

The 1860 Michigan Calhoun County federal census taken 25 June 1860 for the township of Marshall indicates the following:

The Calhoun County business directory for 1869-70 lists Wm. S. Barton as a farmer in Burlington, Section 11. Of interest, there is also a Wm. Olds in Burlington, livery stable, and a Chas. Osborn, building mover listed.

The index to the 1870 Michigan Calhoun County census was finally completed. For the township of Burlington Township, I found the following:
Dwelling and family number 30 contains the following entry:

Barton, William 55 m Farmer $5,000 $493 New York

Louisa 50 f Keeping house Vermont

Eben 16 m Works on farm Michigan

Sidney F. 13 m At school works on farm Michigan

Dwelling and family number 31 contains the following entry:

Barton, Nathanel 79 m At home Rhode Island

Lucinda 78 f Keeping House New York

The 1880 Michigan Calhoun County federal census for Burlington township indicates the following:

To eliminate future confusion, there is a Wm. S. Barton listed in the 1870 Lincoln County, NV federal census in the Meadow Valley enumeration district. However, this is a 25 year old farmer who was born in Illinois whose wife was born in Iowa.

History of Calhoun County, Michigan, 1877, L. H. Everts & Co., page 158 under Burlington Township, Civil Organization, William S. Barton is mentioned as a Justice of the Peace.

On a visit to the Calhoun County Court House at Marshall, Michigan in 1997 I finally solved the mystery of the parentage of our Sidney Barton.

Record of Death Book 2, page 28, record 223 indicates the following:

William S. Barton died Feb. 13, 1883 at Burlington, Calhoun County, Michigan of stomach cancer. He was born in New York and was a farmer. His father was Nathan S. Barton and his mother was Lucinda Barton. Date of Record: May 27, 1885.

Based on his age at death, his birth date would be about May 24, 1815. 6

William married Louisa L. Olds . Louisa was born on 2 Apr 1820 in , , Vermont and died on 12 Apr 1906 in Tekonsha Twp.Calhoun, Michigan at age 86. The cause of her death was Consumption.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Lucinda Barton was born about 1842 in Michigan.

         ii.   Charles S Barton was born about 1845 in Michigan.

        iii.   Wilbur Fisk Barton was born in 1847 in , , Michigan, died on 13 Jun 1933 in Oshtemo, Kalamazoo, Michigan at age 86, and was buried in Windfall Cemetary, Tekonsha, Michigan.

5        iv.   Emily Barton (born on 11 May 1848 in Burlington, Calhoun, Michigan - died on 7 Apr 1934 in So. Mason Valley, Lyon, Nevada)

          v.   George Barton was born about 1852 in Michigan.

         vi.   Eben Clark Barton was born about 1854 in Michigan.

        vii.   Sidney Barton was born about 1857 in Michigan.

       viii.   Harry L. Barton was born in Mar 1860 in Michigan.


11. Louisa L. Olds, daughter of Joseph Jenkinson Olds and Olive Clark , was born on 2 Apr 1820 in , , Vermont and died on 12 Apr 1906 in Tekonsha Twp.Calhoun, Michigan at age 86. The cause of her death was Consumption.

General Notes: In January 1998 I posted the following query on an Olds genealogy mailing list on the Internet:

According to family lore, my wife's 2great grandmother Louisa L. OLDS was born about in Wells, New York. However, 1850, 60, and 80 census information indicate she was born in Vermont. The 1880 census for her indicates both her parents were born in New York.

She married William Sidney Barton in New York and by 1840 they were living in Calhoun County, Michigan where their family was born and raised. Her husband died there in 1883 so I imagine she did sometime later.

Earline Killian <ekillian@tcoe.trinity.k12.ca.us> responded with:

I have the families of Luther Olds and he was born in New York also. In fact, of what I know of the Olds they were almost all born in New York. A couple in Vermont.

Luther's father was Isaac Olds and his mother's name was Martha B. last name unknown. Luther Olds stayed in MI and is buried beside his wife Dorcas Young in the Young Cemetery in Calhoun County, MI. We descend from Luther's son David Olds and his wife Martha Lamb both from Michigan. Part of the family came West to Genoa Nevada when it was the territory of Utah. They stayed in Carson Valley area and then went down to around Bishop, CA. and died and are buried there.

We have two Louisa's in the family both born much later than your Louisa Olds. Both born in Nevada. At this time, I can not find any help for you.

I feel there may be a connection, because all of these Olds were in New York and all born about the same time. I will let you know if I find anything definite. Please let me know if you get good response. Olds are hard to find.

Based on this, I began seeing a possible pattern. I responded with the following message:

Earline, like you, I feel there is probably a connection here. There are just too many similar circumstances. While I have very little on the Olds line, I will include some Barton and Osborn(e) information at the end so we follow the time line.

You said Luther's father was Isaac Olds and his mother's name was Martha B. last name unknown. Luther Olds stayed in MI and is buried beside his wife Dorcas Young in the Young Cemetery in Calhoun County, MI. We desend from Luther's son David Olds and his wife Martha Lamb both from Michigan.

Where in Calhoun County is the Young Cemetery located? Louise Olds and her husband William Sidney Barton were living in Burlington at the time of his death in 1883. (See his story at the end - they had apparently lived there for some time.)

You said part of the family came West to Genoa, Nevada when it was the territory of Utah. They stayed in Carson Valley area and then went down to around Bishop, CA. and died and are buried there.

As you can see from the Cornelius Osborn notes below, some of the family moved about 1864 to Gold Hill, NV (about 10 miles NE of Carson City.) Genoa is down at the south end of Carson Valley just a little NW of Smith Valley where my wife's brother and father still live today near Wellington. Immediately east of Smith Valley is Mason Valley where Cornelius Osborn eventually settled in Yerington.

You said you feel there may be a connection, because all of these Olds were in New York and all born about the same time.

Earline, Please read these notes and see if any of it rings a bell with you.

(Here, I included the notes from the tid bits provided by Alice Louisa Osborn Perry that are included in the notes for Cornelius Osborn pertaining to the Barton family history.)

Shortly after this exchange, I was reviewing the census records for early New York attempting to trace Cornelius Osborn's ancestry back to Suffolk County on Long Island where Thomas Osborn had settled in 1640. The Cornelius Osborn enumerated in the 1855 Greece, Monroe County, New York census was born in Suffolk County in about 1790. By 1820 he was in Washington County, New York when his first child was born. While checking the census for Washington County for Osborns, I was surprised to find several Olds families there. Tracing back through the 1810 and 1800 censuses I found Olds families there.

In 1800, Elijah, James, Samuel and Zebulon Olds were in Cayuga Co (just west of where William Sidney Barton was born in 1823.) James, and Timothy Olds were in Onondaga County (where William Sidney Barton was born.) John and Stephen Olds were in Washington County (just north of where where Nathan Sisson Barton was about the same time.) In addition, Joseph and Rufus Olds were in Ontario County and Mediam Olds was in Saratoga County.

As said above, the ancestry of our Louisa Olds is not clear. Both the LDS International Genealogical Index and Ancestral File contain a Louisa Olds that could very well be ours. Louisa Katherine Olds has a significant pedigree going back many generations. We know our Louisa Olds was born about 1820 very probably in the area near the New York/Vermont border. Family lore says she was born in Wells which is about 40 miles west of the border. The LDS IGI indicates that Louisa Katherine Olds was born 23 Nov 1824 at Ft. Ann, Washington County, New York. This is only a few miles from where William Sidney Barton's grandfather Rufus settled about 1791 and remained there until he moved again to Lansingburgh about 1810. Lansingburgh is only 20 - 30 miles further to the southwest.

Since all of Louisa Katherine Olds' ancestors are from the LDS IGI and Ancestral File, there are only the vital statistic information provided. There is no accompanying text.

Readers should take into consideration the fact that this link is not proved.

Jane Townsend Antonetti's notes: William & Louisa had three other children who died. Wilbur, Eben and Harry were partners in 2 peppermint distilleries north of Burlington. Harry beat Wilbur out of his share. (Per my Aunt Eleanore Townsend Kemp)

Also, according to records that my cousin Larry Pio found in Michigan (1860 & 1900 census, local newsletter etc.. William S. Barton was also referred to as Sidney, his father was Nathan S. Barton and his mother was Lucinda. William was born in New York.

Jane (Townsend) Antonetti's notes: According to my Aunt Shirley and Aunt Eleanore (great-grandaughters of William Barton and Louisa Olds) Louisa's Father was Joseph J. Olds (also called Carmi) and his wife's name was Olive Clark. Carmi was said to be a Methodist minister and that he is buried in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

I was also told that Louisa had a nephew named Schyler Olds who was a politician.

According to the 1860 &1900 Michigan Census and the Calhoun County death records, Louisa is listed as Louisa L. Olds, born May 1820, though the death certificate indicates 4/2/20. The birthplace listed is Vermont. The 1900 census indicates 9 children, 7 still living. Her father was listed as Joseph J. Olds (born in New York). Her mother is listed as Olive Clark (born in New York) Both are also listed as being born in Michigan in another source.

While at the Calhoun County Court House in Marshall, MI in July 2001 I found the following:

Record of Calhoun County Deaths, Book 3, page 224 #188. Apr 12, 1906, Louisa L. Barton Tekonsha Twp age 86 - 10, Consumption, Born Vermont, Father Joseph J. Olds, Mother Olive Clark, both apparently resided in Michigan.

Louisa married William Sidney Barton . William was born about 25 Apr 1815 in , , New York and died on 13 Feb 1883 in Burlington, Calhoun, Michigan about age 67. The cause of his death was Cancer of stomach.

12. John Watson was born of Peterhead, Aberdeen, Scotland.

General Notes: Peterhead is a relatively small village about 35 miles north of Aberdeen on the eastern shore of northern Scotland. The parish records are well documented in various LDS microfilms. While the village is quite small, there is always the possibility that there could be more than one John Watson. During the period of 10 Jan 1819 to 31 Dec 1854 (on LDS MF 0102527), there are three marriages involving a John Watson. These are:

Page 10. September 24, 1820. John Watson, Sailor, and Elisabeth, both of Peterhead.

Page 61. December 22, 1831. John Watson, shoemaker, and Isabella Boyd, both of Peterhead.

Page 100. June 12th, 1838. John Watson, shoemaker, and Rachel Milne, both of Peterhead.

From these, I would assume the two John Watson, shoemaker, are the same individual.

During this relative period the following children were christened in Peterhead with the father listed as John Watson. No mother was listed.

James WATSON 21 May 1804 John WATSON
26 Feb 1806 Isabel WATSON
2 Jun 1808 Lachlan WATSON
15 Jan 1810 David WATSON 31 Mar 1813 John WATSON 28 Aug 1814 Alexander WATSON 13 Apr 1819 Mary WATSON
29 Aug 1819 Elizabeth WATSON
9 Sep 1821 James WATSON
16 Sep 1821 Alexander WATSON 6 Jul 1823 Mary WATSON 28 Sep 1823 Jean Rainy WATSON 28 Sep 1823 George WATSON
16 Apr 1826 Jane WATSON
11 Jun 1826 William WATSON
18 May 1828 Flora WATSON 13 May 1832 John WATSON 8 May 1834 Garden WATSON 29 May 1836 Mary Anderson WATSON
1 Apr 1838 George WATSON
12 Jan 1839 Mary WATSON
19 Mar 1839 Alexander Boyd WATSON 5 Apr 1840 Rachel WATSON 10 Jan 1841 Isabella WATSON
10 Jul 1842 David WATSON
6 Nov 1842 Margaret MILNE WATSON
17 Feb 1844

The following children were christened in Peterhead with the father listed as John Watson and the mother as Rachel Milne:

John WATSON 19 Oct 1846
Christina Mitchell WATSON 27 Jul 1848
William WATSON 25 Apr 1850
Alexander WATSON 7 May 1852
Lexey Ross WATSON 16 May 1854
James WATSON 30 Jan 1856
Patrick Robb WATSON 22 Mar 1858
Martha MILNE WATSON 1 Mar 1861

While strictly circumstantial, from these marriage and christening records, I assume that this John Watson and Rachel Milne are probably the parents of our David Bain Watson. It could also be assumed that the John Watson christened in 1806 could be the same John Watson that married both Elizabeth Boyd in 1831 and Rachel Milne in 1838.

Of additional interest are the following two marriage entries:

Page 128. 10th June 1842. John Bain, laborer, and Elizabeth Watson, both of Peterhead.

Page 149. 22 September 1844. David Bain, currier, and Margaret Stephen, both in this parish.

Finally, there were numerous Milne marriages listed during the 1819-1854 period.

By the way, a Scottish friend of mine, Mhuirich MURDOCK, told me in 1994 that Peterhead is more than a village, its a full blown town (small city?). Toward the end of the 18th century it set itself up as a health resort because of the local springs. He said the fad did not last all that long but it did bring a good number of folks to the area. Another friend pointed out that in 1960, Peterhead had a population of 12,500.

During my research of the Peterhead records I noticed a great number of names ending in "son". Along with this I noticed that there was an early family named Watt. I wonder if by chance our Watson name came from originally being the son of a Watt.

The LDS IGI for Great Britain in 1999 shows only one John Watson christened in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland between 1808 and 1818. That John Watson was christened on 28 Aug 1814. His father is listed as John Watson, no mother is listed.

John married Rachel Milne on 12 Jun 1838 in Peterhead, Aberdeen, Scotland. Rachel was born of Peterhead, Aberdeen, Scotland.

Children from this marriage were:

6         i.   David Bain Watson (born on 12 Jun 1842 in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland - died on 19 Nov 1903 in Guelph, Wellington, Ontario, Canada)

         ii.   John Watson was christened on 19 Oct 1846 in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

        iii.   Christina Mitchell Watson was christened on 27 Jul 1848 in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

         iv.   William Watson was christened on 25 Apr 1850 in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

          v.   Alexander Watson was christened on 7 May 1852 in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

         vi.   Lexey Ross Watson was christened on 16 May 1854 in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

        vii.   James Watson was christened on 30 Jan 1856 in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

       viii.   Patrick Robb Watson was christened on 22 Mar 1858 in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

         ix.   Martha Milne Watson was christened on 1 Mar 1861 in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.


13. Rachel Milne was born of Peterhead, Aberdeen, Scotland.

Rachel married John Watson on 12 Jun 1838 in Peterhead, Aberdeen, Scotland. John was born of Peterhead, Aberdeen, Scotland.

14. William Thomas Jordan was born about 1829 in Possibly, County Cork, Ireland.

General Notes: From Chapter 1 of The Jordan/Stanchfield Family History by Linda Von Rueden Troolin and Jan Jordan Lokensgard, 1994:

Most of WILLIAM THOMAS JORDAN'S life is still shrouded in mystery. Over the years we have hunted high and low for him throughout Canada and have found only one definite record of his existence. In the 1851 census for Maryborough Township, Wellington County Ontario, Canada, living near the town of Arthur, was William Jordan, farmer, age 22, Catholic, from Ireland. His wife ROSANNA HEBNER JORDAN is listed as 19, Catholic and Canadian. At this time they had already had their first child Thomas Jordan who was one year old, Catholic and born in Canada. Anything else we have learned about William Jordan is only speculation or educated guess except that he was born around 1829.
There were two other Jordan families, a James and a Thomas, living in the same area as William and Rosanna. We think they may have been uncles to William or possibly one could have been his father. Perhaps they all came over from Ireland together to escape the potato famine and start a new life. We will probably never know for sure. Family stories that have been passed down say that William was from County Cork.

William married Rosanna Hebner . Rosanna was born on 27 Jul 1833 in Brock Township, Simcoe, Ontario, Canada, died on 13 Nov 1899 in Scotland, , South Dakota at age 66, and was buried in Rose Hill Cem., Scotland, , South Dakota.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Thomas William Jordan was born on 20 Jun 1851 in Maryborough Twp, , Ontario, Canada, died on 4 Mar 1919 in Pine Creek, , Alberta, Canada at age 67, and was buried in Pine Creek Cem..

         ii.   James Anthony Jordan was born on 8 Feb 1853 in Maryborough Twp, , Ontario, died on 18 Dec 1930 in Hickley, , Minnesota at age 77, and was buried in Sandstone, , Minnesota.

7       iii.   Mary Ellen Jordan (born on 20 Feb 1855 in Poss. Peel Twp., Maryborough Twp., Ontario, Canada - died on 4 Jan 1944 in Guelph, Wellington, Ontario, Canada)

         iv.   Daniel Jordan was born on 15 Apr 1856 in Maryborough Twp, , Ontario, Canada and died on 11 Mar 1924 in Sprucefield, , Alberta, Canada at age 67.

          v.   Henry Jordan was born on 29 Jan 1860 and died on 9 Aug 1887 at age 27.


15. Rosanna Hebner, daughter of Henry Hebner and Mary Elizabeth Schell , was born on 27 Jul 1833 in Brock Township, Simcoe, Ontario, Canada, died on 13 Nov 1899 in Scotland, , South Dakota at age 66, and was buried in Rose Hill Cem., Scotland, , South Dakota.

General Notes: The Jordan/Stanchfield Family History written by Linda Von Rueden Troolin & Jan Jordan Lokensgard, 1994, Chapter 1 has:

Now we come back to Rosanna Hebner's life with William Jordan. Since their first child Thomas was born June 20, 1851 according to a bible record, we assume Rosanna and William were married in 1849 or 1850. We believe this bible, now in the possession of Mary Grimes, may have belonged to Rosanna's youngest daughter Maria. The place of their marriage is unknown but we are guessing it was somewhere in Ontario.

The records on Rosanna Hebner's birthdate vary. Rosanna's gravestone in Rose Hill Cemetery, Scotland, South Dakota says she was born July 27, 1833. This would coincide fairly well with her age on the 1851 census, although we have found that census records are often inaccurate. The bible record we found state Rosanna's birthdate as July 27, 1837, born in Brock Township, which is in Simco County Ontario. It is also recorded that her brother Daniel was born there. For anyone that goes in search of material on Rosanna, a word of warning. Most of the records we have found on her are inaccurate. Even her own children did not know her nationality or place of birth. On a death record of one of Rosanna's daughters, it states that Rosanna was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. On other death records we have found of Rosanna's children, it always asks for the place of birth of the mother. These death records have said the mother was Canadian or Irish. To make things even more interesting on the 1871 census for Lambton County Ontario, Enniskillen Township, Rosanna is listed as being of Dutch descent. Both Canadian and U.S. relatives have been told the family story that Rosanna was Pennsylvania Dutch. But it seems there may have been some confusion on this point also. Pennsylvania Dutch is a religion not a term used to describe nationality. Rosanna was of German descent on her father's side. If they told a census taker they were Deutsch, the census taker might have thought that meant Dutch, but it means German. Some of the contradictions on Rosanna's birthdate and place may be explained as the rest of her story unfolds.

William and Rosanna Jordan had moved from Wellington County by 1861 and were not found on that census. We also checked Peel, Kent, and Lambton Counties and did not find them there. During the years from 1851 to 1860 Rosanna and William had five children, Tom, James, Mary Ellen, Dan and Henry. It is not known why but something happened to end the marriage. Freda Edie, a granddaughter of Rosanna said, "She (Rosanna) left her first husband and children and their father put them in foster homes". We assume this happened around 1861 because their only daughter Mary Ellen was placed with another family at about this time. The youngest son Henry stayed with his mother, until 1865, when according to a letter she wrote at that time, placed him in another home. She was still signing her name Rosanna Jordan then. It is not known what happened to the other three sons during this time period. We believe that one of the reasons the information on Rosanna and William is so confusing from source to source is because the family was fragmented at this time. Some of the children never live with either parent as a family again. Subsequently the children had to guess at information about their mother and father because either they never knew in the first place or had forgotten.

Rosanna did marry a second time. An original copy of the marriage certificate of Rosanna Hubner - the spelling of the name on this document was different than the earlier spelling to JAMES BERRY was found. The couple was married July 20, 1867 at Port Huron, Michigan. James is listed a age 34 and from Petrolia, Ontario. Rosanna is listed as age 30 and from Bothwell, Ontario.
They were married by Michael McArron, Justice of the Peace and their witnesses were William B. Bourner and Bridget Cassidy. Could Rosanna have fibbed about her age to make herself appear to be younger than her husband They were married a week before her 34th birthday according to her tombstone birthdate, but at the age of 30 according to the bible record.

James Berry was born June 3, 1835 in Warwickshire, England according to the bible entry. His occupation on the 1871 census is listed as engineer. One story handed down through the generations has been that James did some wildcat oil drilling. Being from a town called Petrolia which isn't far from Oil City makes us think that the information may have been correct.

Rosanna and James Berry had their first child Selina born December 3, 1870. When found on the 1871 census in Enniskillen Township Lambton County Ontario they had their first daughter Selena and Rosanna's youngest son Henry Jordan, by her first marriage, living with them. Another daughter Maria was born in 1872. They were still living in Lambton County, Enniskillen Township according to the 1881 census.

On the 1871 Lambton County census in Dawn Township, which is close to Enniskillen, we found a William Jordan. He is listed as age 35, born in Ireland a farmer, and Baptist living near Bothwell. He is living with his wife Flora, age 32, who is Scottish and an older man Tom Jordan, age 62, who is listed as English. To aid researchers in the future this man was proven not to be our ancestor through his obituary.

Early in 1882, the Berry family moved to Hutchinson County, South Dakota just north of the town of Scotland. According to land records, they bought property in Kaylor Township on March 27th, from Rosanna's son, Thom Jordan, who had move there with his family sometime between September of 1874 and July of 1878. On June 19, 1882 they bought a second parcel of land also in Kaylor Township. On November 5, 1890 they homesteaded another piece of land in Kaylor Township. It had been told through family stories that James Berry built the first brick home in this area.

Not very many stories have been passed down from this period in Rosanna's life but the following is one: Freda Fox, referring to a story she remembered hearing about Rosanna and her daughter Mary Ellen, wrote, "Her mother did write to her but, as grandma (Mary Ellen) could neither read nor write, grandpa did it for her. Her mother, (Rosanna) always started her letters this way ... I now sit down with pen in hand, to write you these few lines to let you know that I am fine." Rosanna appears to have been a prolific letter writer. She was even writing a letter when she died.

Rosanna Berry died in Scotland, South Dakota, November 13, 1899. The following articles taken from the Scotland Journal give some details about her death:

Mrs. James Berry who lived with her husband on a farm near Scotland died very suddenly Monday night while setting at the table writing a letter. She had been failing for over a year, but at the time of her death was apparently as well as usual and had been about her daily duties. About five o'clock in the evening she sat down to write a letter, and without any warning of impending dissolution, dropped off the chair and was dead when help reached her. It is supposed that the immediate cause of her death was heart failure. Mrs. Berry was about sixty years old; a grief stricken husband and several grown children survive her. None of the children were home at the time of her death.

SECOND ARTICLE: A large funeral procession passed through the city Wednesday to Rose Hill Cemetery. It was that of Mrs. James Berry and the procession was that of her late friends who came to pay the last sad rites to a departed friend.

By May 9, 1902, James Berry had sold all three parcels of land that he had purchased in Kaylor Township. We do not know where he went after this time. We could not find him in Sioux City, Iowa where his two daughters lived or in Nebraska where his step-son Tom Jordan lived. James died January 28, 1911 according to the bible. Where we do not know. Neither Iowa or South Dakota had death record for him. The Scotland Journal ran no obituary for him on that date Hutchinson County had no record of probate or wills for either Rosanna or James Berry. Since a picture was found of James and Rosanna, in their later years, taken in Wapakoneta, Ohio, that area's newspapers were checked for an obituary for James, without success. Lillian Collinge Lux, a relative of Tom Jordan's first wife Sarah Collinge, remembered her father saying he drove the hearse when one of the Berry's died but she didn't know if it was Rosanna or James.

When the Troolin family visited Rosanna's grave site in Scotland, South Dakota during the summer of 1992 they discovered another little puzzle. Rosanna is buried next to her daughter Maria Grimes. The spot on the other side of Rosanna was not marked. Later in talking to the man who kept the cemetery records, they were allowed to see a map of all the graves in the cemetery. In the unmarked grave next to Rosanna was a James Berry but the date of burial is listed as 1946! We do not know of any son being born to Rosanna and James and assume that this is her husband and that someone made a mistake on the date.

Rosanna's tombstone is located right behind the tool shed at the Rose Hill Cemetery in Scotland. The inscription was very worn and hard to read so a rubbing was made of it. The words were crudely carved and oddly spaced but revealed this heartfelt poem:

"One precious to our hearts is gone
The voice we love is stilled
The place made vacant in our home
Can never more be filled."

We wish the information on Rosanna, William and James was more concrete but it wasn't for a lack of trying. We have spent many hours over the years trying to verify information and just learn more about them. Unfortunately this is all we have been able to uncover on this very elusive trio.

Rosanna married William Thomas Jordan . William was born about 1829 in Possibly, County Cork, Ireland.

Rosanna next married James Berry on 20 Jul 1867 in Port Huron, , Michigan. James was born on 3 Jun 1833 in , Warwickshire, England and died on 28 Jan 1911 at age 77.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Selina Berry was born on 2 Dec 1870 in Pertolia, , Ontario, died on 8 Apr 1939 in San Francisco, , California at age 68, and was buried in Woodlawn Cem., Colma, California.

         ii.   Maria Berry was born on 28 Nov 1872 in Pertolia, , Ontario, died on 12 Dec 1923 in Sioux City, , Iowa at age 51, and was buried in Rose Hill Cem., Scotland, South Dakota.

16. Stephen Osborn, son of Cornelius Osborn and Hannah Hedges , was born on 12 Nov 1786 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York and died before 1835.

General Notes: All we know about the father of Cornelius Osborn is that he was definitely dead by 1836 when Cornelius, Rufus, their widowed mother, and their sisters moved to Calhoun County, Michigan. He probably died before 1830 because Martha Osborn is the head of household in the 1830 federal census for Monroe County at Gates.

Stephen married Martha Barton 11 on 12 Sep 1812 in Lansingburgh, Rensselaer, New York. Martha was born on 9 Jul 1785 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island, 11 died on 2 Feb 1853 11 at age 67, and was buried in Windfall Cemetary, Tekonsha, Michigan. 8,11

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Martha Osborn was born about 1813 in Lansingburg, Rensselaer, New York. 11

8        ii.   Cornelius Osborn (born about 1814 in Lansingburg, Rensselaer, New York - died in 1879 in , , Nevada)

        iii.   Mary Osborn was born about 1815 in Lansingburg, Rensselaer, New York.

         iv.   Hannah Osborn was born about 1816 in Lansingburg, Rensselaer, New York.

          v.   Rufus Osborn was born on 5 Jul 1817 in Lansingburg, Rensselaer, New York, died on 26 Feb 1891 in Tekonsha Twp.Calhoun, Michigan at age 73, and was buried in Windfall Cemetary, Tekonsha, Michigan. 8

         vi.   Julia Osborn was born about 1821 in Lansingburg, Rensselaer, New York.

17. Martha Barton,11 daughter of Rufus Barton and Prudence Cole , was born on 9 Jul 1785 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island, 11 died on 2 Feb 1853 11 at age 67, and was buried in Windfall Cemetary, Tekonsha, Michigan. 8,11

General Notes: Martha is assumed to be the mother of Cornelius and Rufus based on land records and census records that place them all near each other. (In 1835 and 1836 she and Rufus both owned property on Spring Street in Rochester. Spring is only a couple blocks long.) In fact, in the 1850 census, she at age 64 is living with Rufus and his family. That census record indicates she was born in Rhode Island.

Since Martha was born in Rhode Island and we know that her daughter-in-law Emma Barton's grandfather Nathan S. Barton was also born in Rhode Island, this may account for the statement made by Emma Batchelder (in Cornelius's notes) that Cornelius Osborn and Sidney Barton were second cousins. This would follow if this Martha and Nathan S. Barton were first cousins.

She must have had considerable money when she came to Calhoun County in 1836. Between 1837 and 1839 she was involved in the purchase of three parcels of land.

In 1839 and 1841 she sold two parcels of land to Rufus Osborn in Calhoun County.

All of this was confirmed in 1998 when I found the 1953 edition of East Hampton History and the detailed Osborn genealogy contained therein. However, this book had one mistake in it that almost lead me on a wild goose chase. The Osborn genealogy indicated that Stephen Osborn married Martha Baker. To complicate things, the book also had a detailed Baker genealogy in it. Fortunately, I could not find a Martha Baker that fit the time and place. Almost immediately it dawned on me that this Martha could not be a descendant of the East Hampton Baker line since, as I said above, later census records indicated she had been born in Rhode Island.

I promptly checked the 1790 Rhode Island census records and found a Jessee Baker listed only a few lines from Rufus Barton in Warren, Bristol County. This is where the wild goose chase would have really begun!

Fortunately, for some reason, I decided to check out an older version of East Hampton History which was compiled by Judge Henry P. Hedges in 1897. The Mesa, AZ Family History Center had a microfilm copy of the text. It was dark and unreadable in spots, but its account of the Osborn genealogy indicated that Stephen Osborn had moved to Lansingburgh, NY and had married Martha Barton. Since Rufus and Prudence Barton had also moved to Lansingburgh about this same time, I checked and they in fact had a daughter named Martha born in 1895. This matched the later census age of the Martha that apparently was the mother of our Cornelius. All of this was almost immediately confirmed when I found a microfilm copy of marriage notices posted in the Lansingburgh Gazette. The September 15, 1812 edition clearly indicated on page 3, column 5 that Martha Barton and Stephen Osborn were married there on September 12, 1812.

Thus, after many years of searching, we have finally proved the statements made in the notes prepared by Emma Batchelder in the 1960s that Sidney Barton and Cornelius Osborn were second cousins and Charles Osborn and Emily Barton were 3rd cousins.

In about 1839 Martha received 240 acres from the Government Land Office in Tekonsha Twp Section 32.

In Calhoun County Index to Deeds, Book 1, Jan 25, 1838, sold property in Section 32 to her nephew William S. Barton.


Martha's 1840 entry in the 1840 federal census for Tekonsha Twp, Calhoun County, MI indicates a girl under 5, a boy 5<10, a girl 10<15, a male 20<30, and apparently herself in her fifties. The adult male is probably her son Rufus and the girl under 5 is Rufus's daughter Catherine. I have no idea who the girl 10<15 is. 11

Martha married Stephen Osborn on 12 Sep 1812 in Lansingburgh, Rensselaer, New York. Stephen was born on 12 Nov 1786 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York and died before 1835.

18. Nelson Aldrich 12 was born about 1796 in , , New York.

General Notes: See the notes for daughter Matilda for basis of Nelson being her father.

According to the 1840 and 1850 census, Nelson and his family of four sons and five daughters moved from NY to MI sometime between when his last son Henry was born in 1837 in NY and the 1840 MI census where they appear in Tekonsha Township.

The History of Calhoun County 1877 page 151 indicates "Among the old settlers who came in 1836-37 were Deacon Nelson Aldrich, and Heman and John Ellis. The vicinity of Aldrich's settlement is known as Aldrich's Corners." Aldrich's Corners is at the intersection of Sections 11, 12, 13. and 14.

An early Tekonsha plat map indicates that N. Aldrich owned 160 acres in the NE part of Section 14. Interestingly, 160 acres in the SE corner of Section 14 and another 160 acres in the SW corner of Section 13 is owned by C. F. Aldrich. H. P. Aldrich owns 109 acres in the upper NW part of Section 13.

The 1850 Tekonsha federal census listed Nelson's profession as a farmer and his worth as $7500. In 1860 his real estate was valued as $8000 and personal property as $1500. (Note that in 1860, Nelson's son Charles lives adjacent and has real estate valued as $5000.)

There is a Nelson Aldrich listed in the 1870 Federal Census for Tekonsha on page 821R. 6

Nelson married Elizabeth Hooker . Elizabeth was born about 1792 in , , New York.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Daughter Aldrich was born from 1810 to 1820 in , Probably, NY.

9        ii.   Matilda Aldridge (born about 1823 in , , New York)

        iii.   Charles Aldrich was born on 12 May 1827 in , , New York, died on 16 Apr 1899 8 at age 71, and was buried in Riverside Cemetary, Tekonsha, Michigan. The cause of his death was TB.

         iv.   Russell Aldrich was born about 1828 in , , New York.

          v.   Marion Aldrich was born about 1830 in , , New York.

         vi.   Catherine Aldrich was born about 1832 in , , New York.

        vii.   Rebecca Aldrich was born about 1835 in , , New York.

       viii.   Henry Aldrich was born about 1837 in , , New York.


19. Elizabeth Hooker was born about 1792 in , , New York.

General Notes: Burial records for her son, Charles, identify her as Elizabeth Hooker.

Elizabeth married Nelson Aldrich . Nelson was born about 1796 in , , New York.

20. Nathan Sisson Barton, son of Rufus Barton and Prudence Cole , was born on 8 May 1791 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island and died after 1870 in Burlington, Calhoun, Michigan.

General Notes: While at the Rhode Island Genealogical Society in 1997 I photo copied a microfilm record of the actual birth recorded by the Warren city clerk.

Surprisingly, several years before I made the discovery that Nathan was the father of William Sidney Barton, I now find that my notes indicated Nathan Barton, 69, Carpenter, $500, $200, NY, is listed in the 1860 Tekonsha Township, Calhoun County, Michigan federal census in household 1717, the Rufus Osborn residence! (I wonder where Nathan's wife Lucinda was during this time.)

The 1850 Calhoun County, Town of Marshall federal census has the following:

Barton, N S 59 m Carpenter Rhode Island

L 56 f New York

The index to the 1870 Michigan Calhoun County census was finally completed. For the township of Burlington Township, I found the following:

Dwelling and family number 31 contains the following entry:

Barton, Nathanel 79 m At home Rhode Island

Lucinda 78 f Keeping House New York

This is adjacent to their son William S. Barton who is family 30 in the above census.
----------------------------------------------
The fact that Nathan S. Barton, father of William S. Barton is the same Nathan Sisson Barton, son of Rufus and Prudence Barton has not been proved. However, this similarities are striking. The have the same first name and middle initial. According to several Calhoun County census records Nathan S. was born about 1791 in Rhode Island. Nathan Sisson was born on Feb. 11, 1791 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island.

The source of Nathan Sisson Barton, his siblings and his parents is the 1988 International Genealogical Index, Batch #: C502171, Source Call #: 908271 ITEM 2. They are also listed on page 67 of The Descendants of John Cole of Plymouth 1633.

The notes for Nathan's mother Prudence gives us a major clue on the family migration from Warren, Rhode Island to Washington County, NY between the date of birth of her last two children (1796-1799).

While at the Calhoun County Court House at Marshall, Michigan in June, 1997 I found several records pertaining to a Charles A. and Lucy Barton. The birth records did not indicate they were children of Nathan S. Barton, but it appeared they were related due to time and place. I have added them as children until I can find more information. There was also a Nathan Barton of Chicago who purchased several properties in Calhoun County.acent to Cayuga County.

Nathan married Lucinda . Lucinda was born on 8 Jan 1794 in , , New York and died on 13 Feb 1880 in Burlington, Calhoun, Michigan at age 86. The cause of her death was Old age.

Children from this marriage were:

10        i.   William Sidney Barton (born about 25 Apr 1815 in , , New York - died on 13 Feb 1883 in Burlington, Calhoun, Michigan)

         ii.   Charles A. Barton was born about 1820 in , , Vermont. 13

        iii.   Lucy Barton was born about 1815.


21. Lucinda was born on 8 Jan 1794 in , , New York and died on 13 Feb 1880 in Burlington, Calhoun, Michigan at age 86. The cause of her death was Old age.

General Notes: Record of Calhoun Co. Deaths 1867 - 1882, pagd 249, Burlington Twp #64 Lucinda Barton, female white, widow, age 86 y 1 m 5 d died in Burlington of old age. Born in NY, no record of parents names. Died Feb 13, 1880.

Lucinda married Nathan Sisson Barton . Nathan was born on 8 May 1791 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island and died after 1870 in Burlington, Calhoun, Michigan.

22. Joseph Jenkinson Olds,14,15 son of John Olds and Dolly Clark , was born abtout 1788 in New York Or Michigan.

General Notes: As mentioned in Louisa L. Olds' notes, Jane (Townsend) Antonetti <jantonetti@juno.com>, in July 2000 told me that according to her Aunt Shirley and Aunt Eleanore (great-grandaughters of William Barton and Louisa Olds) Louisa's Father was Joseph J. Olds (also called Carmi) and his wife's name was Olive Clark. Carmi was said to be a Methodist minister and that he is buried in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She also had been told that Louisa had a nephew named Schyler Olds who was a politician.

Later, while at the LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake City I had access to a microfiche version of The Olds (Old, Ould) Family in England and America - American Genealogy by Edson B. Olds - English Pedigree by Miss Susan S. Gascoyne Old of London, England - Compiled and Published by Edson B. Olds, Washington, D. C., 1915. After much squinting and searching I found a Joseph Jenkinson Olds who had married an Olive Clark. They had children Louisa and Carmi C. Carmi had a son named Schuyler Seager Olds. Viola!

The text indicated that Joseph lived in Grandville, NY, where he had a house standing on the State line.

The 1820 Vermont Federal Census shows Joseph Olds living in Wells, NH. Looking at a map, it shows that Granville and Wells townships both are immediately on opposite sides of the NY/VT state boundary. Apparently the 1820 census taker knocked on the door on the NH side of the house.

This also possibly explains why Emma Batchelder (Louisa's granddaughter) many years later thought that Louisa Olds was born in Wells, NY. She must have always entered through the NY side of the house and looked out the back window at Wells.

Emma Batchelder's statement that her grandmother being born in Wells, NY, caused severe difficulty in finding the Olds ancestry. There is in fact a Wells, NY. Fortunately, the 1850 and later MI census did indicate that Louisa was born in VT. This was further complicated that Louisa's children Emily and Wilbur indicated in the 1900 NV census that their mother was born in NY.

This is what makes genealogy so much fun!

Joseph is not listed in the 1810 Rutland census. There is a Joseph Olds listed in the Marlborough, Windham County, CT about 60 miles to the south east. However, he is also listed there in the 1800 census when our Joseph would have only been 12 year old. However, Joseph's father was born in Ashford, Windham County, about 24 miles north east of Marlborough.

Joseph married Olive Clark on 22 Sep 1808 in Saratoga, Saratoga, New York. Olive was born on 29 May 1792 in New York Or Michigan and died in 1826 at age 34.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Carmi C. Olds was born on 31 Mar 1815 in Granville, Washington, New York and died on 21 Nov 1889 at age 74.

11       ii.   Louisa L. Olds (born on 2 Apr 1820 in , , Vermont - died on 12 Apr 1906 in Tekonsha Twp.Calhoun, Michigan)

Joseph next married Maria Schlusser after 1826.

23. Olive Clark 14 was born on 29 May 1792 in New York Or Michigan and died in 1826 at age 34.

General Notes: Jane Antonetti indicates death as 1851. However, The Olds Family of America and England indicates her death as 1826 and a second marriage to Maria Schlusser.

The 1810 Federal census for Wells, Rutland Co., VT shows three Clark families: Roswell, Stephen, and Stephen, Jr. All are on page 107.

Olive married Joseph Jenkinson Olds on 22 Sep 1808 in Saratoga, Saratoga, New York. Joseph was born abtout 1788 in New York Or Michigan.

30. Henry Hebner, son of Nicholas Henry Hebner and Catherine Margaretha , was born about 1801 in Markham, York, Ontario.

General Notes: The Jordan/Stanchfield Family History written by Linda Von Rueden Troolin & Jan Jordan Lokensgard, 1994, Chapter 1:

Nicholas Henry Hebner was born May 3, 1776, probably in the border area of Germany and Denmark, near Hamburg. It is believed that he and Margaretha were one of 40 or 50 couples brought to Canada by William Berczy. The Berczy census of 1803, shows Nicholas, Margaretha and children Henry, Anna and Charles.
They were one of the families to settle in the Province of Upper Canada, and located in the Township of Markham, in the County of York, from June of 1794 until March of 1798. A patent was granted to them on the 26th of September, 1805 for 200 acres of land, in Markham Township. Nicholas Hebner died in Oxford County, Ontario, April 5, 1855.
Henry Hebner was listed as being on the Markham militia list for the year 1825. He married Mary Elizabeth Schell Cook, December 31, 1833. Elizabeth was the widow of a John Cook. She married John Cook, at an early age and was the mother of five children by him. Elizabeth was the eldest daughter of Mark Schel and Delila Casler. Elizabeth was born in 1796 in New York and died in 1885 at Lexington, Michigan. Elizabeth and Henry Hebner had four children, Rosanna being the oldest, followed by Daniel, Mary (Polly), and Eliza. It is unknown what year Henry Hebner died but Elizabeth married a third time on October 11, 1849, to John Tool at Pickering, Ontario. He was a widower with 14 children.

Henry married Mary Elizabeth Schell on 31 Dec 1833. Mary was born in 1796 in , , New York and died in 1885 in Lexington, , Michigan at age 89.

Children from this marriage were:

15        i.   Rosanna Hebner (born on 27 Jul 1833 in Brock Township, Simcoe, Ontario, Canada - died on 13 Nov 1899 in Scotland, , South Dakota)

         ii.   Daniel Hebner .

        iii.   Mary "Polly" Hebner .

         iv.   Eliza Hebner .


31. Mary Elizabeth Schell, daughter of Marcus (Mark) Schell and Delia Casler , was born in 1796 in , , New York and died in 1885 in Lexington, , Michigan at age 89.

32. Cornelius Osborn,11 son of Thomas Osborn and Jane Conklin , was born on 15 Jan 1754 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York, 11 died on 24 Sep 1810 11 at age 56, and was buried in South End Burying Ground, East Hampton. 11

General Notes: East Hampton History, 1897 by Judge Henry P. Hedges indicates that Cornelius resided in Jericho (about a mile WSW of the center of East Hampton) and that in 1808 his son Stephen moved to Lansingburgh, NY. From the following I assume that Cornelius either went with or soon followed his son Stephen.

The 1830 Federal Census Index indicates the following:

Osborn, Cornelius 1830 GREENWICH, WASHINGTON CO., NY 163

Of special interest, Cambridge, Washington Co., NY is where our William Sidney Barton's grandfather Rufus settled in 1799 before they moved on to Lansingburgh, NY, about 15 miles SW before 1820. Cambridge is about eight miles SE of Greenwich.

In the 1820 Federal New York Census C. Osborne is listed in Greenwich on page 203.

The 1810 Federal New York Census does not contain a Cornelius Osborn. However, there were 22 Osborn families in Suffolk Co., one in Rensselaer Co., one in Onondaga Co., and two in Washington Co.

The 1800 Federal New York Census shows Cornelius Osborn in Suffolk Co. on page 89 with 21001-10110-00.

East Hampton History, 1953, page 495 indicates Cornelius 5 served during the American Revolution as a private in Suffolk County 1st Regiment of Minute Men. He lived at Jericho, East Hampton.

An early reference to Cornelius Osborn is found in the Index to Miscellaneous Records, Book I, 1791-1831, Washington County, NY, page 337 makes reference to an assignment and discharge of assignment to A. B. F. Ormsby.

While at the East Hampton Public Library in May of 2001 I found a copy of a letter written by Florence Huffman Ellis in 1977. She is Earl Osborne's second cousin. They share Cornelius Osborn and Matilda Adlridge as great grand parents. (See Duetta Florence Huffman.) The letter is filed in VF 929.2 Osborne.

June 18, 1977
11285 Shadow
Las Vegas, Nev 89102

Dear One,*

Have been doing a bit of cleaning out my cedar chest & came across the pillow case. This is the information written on the note - The flax from which this case was made was raised and spun by Cornelius and Hannah Osborne, you great grand father and grandmother . Cornelius was born Sept. 24, 1753 - married Hannah Hedge - died 1810, aged 57. Both the above were baptized by Samuel Buel 1786; as given in Church Records, East Hampton, Suffolk Co. Long Island. This case to be kept in the Osborne family.

Sent to Mary Osborne Greeley in the possession of Julia Greeley Mc Gowan from the time of Mary Osborne Greeley's death June 18, 1914, until the death of Julia, June 9, 1932, then given to Paul Greeley, brother of Julia. After Paul's death the pillow case was given to Florence Huffman Ellis, daughter of Mary Swartout Huffman, oldest child of Mary Osborne Greeley.

Mary Osborne Greeley was my grandmother so you would be the fifth generation removed from the Osbornes that made the pillow case. Isn't it interesting that you would be the one to return to live on Long Island.

Thought you might do a bit of research before you come out.

It would probably be easier ... the letter ends here. In fact, it appears several pages of the complete file are missing. There is a hand written genealogy as the next two pages that cover 5. Cornelius and 6 Stephen. It appears that the first four levels are missing.

* "Dear One" appears to be to Florence's daughter Annette Ellis Fisherman, 11 Shoreview Rd, Port Washington, NY. (See Annette Marie Ellis.) 11

Cornelius married Hannah Hedges .11 Hannah died on 20 May 1816 11 and was buried in South End Burying Ground, East Hampton. 11

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Silas Osborn was born from 1780 to 1790. 11

16       ii.   Stephen Osborn (born on 12 Nov 1786 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York - died before 1835)

        iii.   Susanna Osborn was born on 23 Oct 1788 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York and died in 1789 at age 1.

        vii.   Mary Osborn was born in 1797 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York.

       viii.   Phoebe Osborn was born on 20 Jan 1800 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York and died on 7 Apr 1848 at age 48.


33. Hannah Hedges,11 daughter of Matthew Hedges and Hannah Hudson , died on 20 May 1816 11 and was buried in South End Burying Ground, East Hampton. 11

General Notes: The East Hampton History does not specifically identify this Hannah Hedges as the Hannah Hedges born March 2, 1766, daughter of Matthew Hedges. However, with the circumstantial evidence available, I (RCL) am making that connection. 11

Hannah married Cornelius Osborn .11 Cornelius was born on 15 Jan 1754 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York, 11 died on 24 Sep 1810 11 at age 56, and was buried in South End Burying Ground, East Hampton. 11

34. Rufus Barton,16 son of Samuel Barton and Lillis Turner , was born on 20 Aug 1749 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island 16 and died on 10 Jun 1807 in Lansingburg, Rensselaer, New York 16 at age 57.

General Notes: ====================== Rufus Barton's Early Life====================

The IGI lists Rufus' birth as 20 AUG 1749 Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island. This indicates only his wife as Prudence Cole. Another IGI listing shows birth as 22 Feb 1743, Kent, Rhode Island. One record indicates his parents as Rufus Barton and Catherine. Another indicates his parents as Rufus Barton and Honour. At least two of his living descendants feel that his parents are Samuel and Lillis Turner Barton. Each will be discussed below.

For background we must know that Warren, Rhode Island was founded 1747 from MA towns of Barrington, Swansea, and Rehoboth. Also, Bristol was called Mt. Hope in 1679. Founded 1681 as part of Plymouth Colony. Became Bristol Co., MA in 1686. Ceded to RI in 1747.

There is little doubt in my mind that our Rufus Barton of Warren descends from the Rufus Barton who settled in Warwick and died there in 1648. A common genealogical ploy is to work down from your known line and work up from the immigrant at the same time. Eventually the two will connect. However, until we make the actual connection, all general Barton information will be included here.

As a starting point, the Census of the Inhabitants of Rhode Island, 1774 include the following at Warren:

Name Males >16 <16 Females >16 <16 Indian Black

Haile Barton 1 1 1

William Barton 1 2 1 1 1

Rufus Barton 1 2 2

Lydia Barton 1 1 2

Richard Barton 1 2 2 1 4

Benjamin Barton 1 3 2 1 1

(This census also included 15 Cole, 7 Luther, 15 Miller, and 3 Sisson heads of household in Warren.)

The History of Warren, Rhode Island, in the War of The Revolution, 1776 - 1783. By Virginia Baker, Published in Warren, R.I. in 1901 contains some historic information that may help make the connection.

Page 5 indicates that the pioneer settlers of Swansea, Massachusetts, of which the town Warren originally formed a part, were a strong and steadfast race of men, resolute, courageous, and liberty loving. The characteristics so marked in them descended to their posterity.

Page 10 indicates the population of Warren in 1776 was 1,005 including slaves. The town was required by law to furnish ten men for military service, but in September it was voted to increase the number to twelve.

Page 13 describes how Lieut. Col William Barton (later promoted to General) in July 1777 raised the hopes of Rhode Islanders by capturing British General Prescott, Warren being especially gratified at this brilliant achievement of one of her sons.

Page 38 lists the Roll of Capt. Ezra Ormsbee's Company of Militia in the Town Warren, 1776. It included Haile Barton, David Barton, Thomas Barden, Richard Barton, Joseph Barton, Jr.

Page 41 includes a True List of all the Soldiers in the Town of Warren both in the Alarm and Militia who were Drafted the 28th day of Sep't'm., A. D. 1777. They included William, Benjamin, Richard Barton.

Page 43 lists Warren men who were members of the Alarm Company of Bristol County in 1779. It included Benjamin Barton.

Page 44 lists the names in Captain Robert Carr's Company of the Senior Class in the County of Bristol in Gen. Miller's Brigade, 1780. It included Rufus and William Barton.

Page 45 lists Capt. Curtis Cole's Company in Cur'nl Nathan Miller's Regiment. 1781. It included David Barton.

Page 59 indicates Rufus Barton's loss during the War was £9 9 6.

The First Census of the United States in 1790 lists Rufus Barton in Warren, Bristol County, Rhode Island with two males of 16 years and upwards, three females under 16 years, and three females including heads of families.

====================== Rufus Barton's Parents======================

I am not sure who are the parents of our Rufus Barton. However, because this Rufus Barton named one of his daughters Lillis Turner Barton and one of his sons Turner Barton, I originally assumed his parents were Samuel Barton and Lillis Turner.

From the fact that Warren was once part of Swansea, Massachusetts, I found something in the Vital Records of Swansea, Massachusetts to 1850 that might be a lead to Rufus Barton's ancestry. Book B: Marriages 1705 - 1775 indicates that Samuel Barton and Lillis Turner were married March ye 23: 1737/8 by Samuel Maxwell minister. Since our Rufus named one of his daughters Lillis Turner Barton, based on time and place, I would suspect that Samuel and Lillis Barton may be his parents.

Book B: Births 1705 - 1775 indicates Lillis the Daughter of William Turner and of Patience his wife was Born February the 26: 1714/5.

The source of this Rufus Barton's birth date, birth location, marriage date, and marriage location is the 1994 RI IGI.

Page 22 of the Barton Family manuscript lists Rufus and Prudence (Cole) Barton, Mar. Apr 7, 1771, and their eleven children. However, there is neither a link to this Rufus nor reference to his parents in the manuscript. (Nearly every other entry in the manuscript has both a to and from reference for every family head.) It does list the eleventh child, Ebenezer Cole Barton b. Aug 14, 1799 Cambridge, N. Y.

As stated above, it appears Samuel and Lillis Turner Barton may be the parents of this Rufus. In July 1997 I ran across an Internet web page sponsored by David Cole. In it, there is circumstantial evidence that Rufus's parents are David and Susanna Barton, married about 1735, or Samuel and Lillis Turner Barton, married in 1737.

A final bit of evidence is that General William Barton and our Rufus Barton were cousins. ( The DAR application submitted by Margarett Hodges Matavia, under the section "Ancestor's Services", she typed the following: " Col. William Barton was a cousin of Rufus Barton and was reared in his home so they were like brothers.") William Barton's father was Benjamin Barton, brother of Samuel Barton. This would make William and Rufus cousins. However, there were three other brothers that could be Rufus's father: Andrew, Rufus, and Anthony. In fact, this brother Rufus had a son named Rufus born 1743 of whom we know nothing further except his LDS IGI entry listing his parents as Rufus and Catherine. But, brother Anthony had a son Nathan - remember that our Rufus named one son Nathan. Oh, how twisted this web becomes!

Within an hour of writing the previous paragraph I completed my initial review of Rufus Barton's pension package. The very last page of the file was a letter from a Jos. J. Barton of Greensboro, N.C. dated March 6, 1909 to the Pension Office in Washington, DC. In that letter he said:

I am advised that I may obtain a copy of the application for a pension of our Rufus Barton who was born Feby. 22, 1743 in Warwick, R.I. and lived in Warren R.I. at the beginning of the Revolutionary War. He is supposed to have served in a Rhode Island regiment. I would like to obtain the date of his death and such information as your records may sho. He married April 7, 1771, Prudence Cole. ...

This all but proves that our Rufus is the son of Rufus, son of Andrew mentioned above. However, a living descendant of Jos. J. Barton now feels that Rufus is the son of Samuel and Lillis Barton. Maybe if we could find the actual age of Rufus when he died in 1807, it would narrow the search.

Seth Sargent Barton and others feel that Rufus is the son of Samuel and Lillis Barton. In 2004 Seth participated in the Barton Society DNA project. Here are the results reported by Terry Barton:

Roy, we got the DNA test results back yesterday. Seth is a 25/26 match to the first two participants who were tested from the Rufus line. While, this doesn't prove which of the three brothers were father of Lt Rufus, it does confirm that your wife's Lt Rufus line shares a common ancestor with Betsey Perra and that the common ancestor is likely the immigrant Rufus.

The one mutation is a 16 (instead of 15) at DYS437. Without additional testing, we can't say where the mutation occurred. It could be anywhere in the line from Seth up to either of the grandsons of Rufus (Benjamin & Rufus James), and back down to the twins Stukely & Benjamin. As time goes on, I hope that you will find other descendants and potential descendants to test and fill out the detail on your family. In the meantime, you have a solid claim on Rufus' son, Benjamin b 1644, as the common ancestor of all three participants. And, through traditional genealogy, to the immigrant Rufus.

=================Rufus Barton's Revolutionary Service================

Rufus Barton's widow was placed on the pension roll, 1836, for his service as orderly sergeant and ensign, and, 1777-78, as lieutenant in Capt. Benjamin Church's company, Colonel Tallman's regiment; also, 1778-79, as Deputy Commissary of Issues. He died 1807, in Lansingburgh, N. Y. (See great grandddaughter Fannie Osborn's notes.)

State of New York
County of Rensselaer
City of Troy

On this 16th day of August AD. 1836 personally appeared before the Justices Court in and for the City of Troy, Prudence Barton, a resident of Lansingburgh in the county of Rensselaer and State of New York. Aged last October 82 years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on her oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the provision made by the Act of Congress passed July 4, 1836. That she is the widow of Rulus Barton who was a Lieutenant and a Commissary in the Army of the Revolution in the Rhode Island State Troops - That her said husband Rulus Barton first entered said service as a Lieutenant in the month of February AD. 1777 and continually served as such Lieutenant until the month of March 1778 when he was reappointed such Lieutenant and served continually in that capacity until the spring of the year of 1779. That during about nine or ten months of the latter part of the last mentioned term of service, he acted as issuing Commissary for the Regiment. That in the month of January 1779 according to the best recollection of this deponent - she went with her said husband to Little Compton in Rhode Island where the troops were stationed and that she remained with him there until the latter part of April or first of May in the year 1779. That while there she well remembers that her said husband acted as Commissary and distributed rations, clothing and other articles to the Regiment and that she this deponent during that time, herself baked bread and done other cooking for the soldiers there stationed - And that her said husband remained at Little Compton and acted in his capacity of Commissary after his second year's commission as Lieutenant expired, but for what term this deponent does not recollect. And this deponent further says that her said husband first began his service in the revolution upon the breaking out of hostilities in Rhode Island about two years before he was appointed Lieutenant and went to Boston and served at different times as an orderlie (orderly) Sergeant and Ensign, but for what period he served in those capacities she has no means of recollection.
That she and her said husband removed from Warren in Rhode Island to Cambridge, Washington County in this state in the month of March 1797 and resided there until October 1802 when they removed to Lansingburgh, where she now resides. That her said husband died in the month of June 1807 and that there all her husband's books and papers fell into the hands of her son
Rufus Barton, since which she has not seen them, but most of which she believes to be lost or destroyed. - That she has no Documentary Evidence in support of her claim unless the same may be found at Washington.
She further declares that she was married to the said Rufus Barton on the 7th day of April 1771: that her husband, the aforesaid Rufus Barton died on the tenth day of June A.D. 1807 and that she has remained a widow ever since that period as will more fully appear by reference to the proof hereto annexed.

=================Rufus Barton's Migration to New York================

Rufus and Prudence in New York (where William Sidney Barton was born.)

Since William Sidney Barton was born in New York in 1815, supposedly in Skaneateles, Onondaga County, Nathan Sisson and Lucinda Barton were there by that time. The 1800 New York census has several Barton entries that are of interest.

Ruphis Barton is listed in the 1800 Federal New York Census in Washington Co. on page 365 as 31201-11101-00. Seth and Timothy Barton were also in Washington Co.

Alpheus, Benjamin, Josiah, and Stephen Barton were in Onondaga County. Thomas Barton was in Cayuga County, immediately to the west of Skaneateles.

Of special interest is Azariah, Edward, Samuel, and William Barton are in Rensselaer County. This could be especially meaningful because in 1819 Rufus Barton of Lansingburgh in the county of Rensselaer was involved in two land transactions in Camillus in the county of Onondaga.

Probably the most convincing evidence of the migration path is that The Descendants of James Cole of Plymouth 1633, page 67 gives us some very meaningful additional information. The text indicates Prudence's and Rufus' first ten children were born in Warren, RI and the last one was born in Cambridge, Washington Co., NY. The family lived near Troy, NY.

The 1800 NY census indicates a Ruphes Barton in Washington County, page 192.

Cambridge is approximately 23 miles northeast of Troy in Rensselaer County, NY. It is also only two miles from the Vermont/New York boundary.

A deposition by David Smith to support Prudence Barton's request for Rufus' pension indicates Rufus and Prudence moved to Lansingburgh about 1802 and that Rufus died there in 1807..

The 1820 New York federal census lists Prudence and Rufus Barton in adjacent entries in Lansingburgh, Renssalaer County. (Lansingburgh is a community in the northern part of current Troy, NY. Based on later evidence, this Rufus would be her son.)

Rufus married Prudence Cole on 7 Apr 1771 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island. Prudence was born on 22 Oct 1753 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island, died on 29 Nov 1845 in Lansingburgh, Rensselaer, New York at age 92, and was buried in The Village Cem..

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Benjamin Barton was born on 21 Sep 1771 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island and died before 1850.

         ii.   Caleb Barton was born on 11 Mar 1774 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island and died on 9 Jul 1779 17 at age 5.

        iii.   William Barton was born on 1 Aug 1777 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island and died before 1850.

         iv.   Caleb Barton was born on 3 Jul 1780 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island and died in May 1809 at age 28.

          v.   Mary Barton was born on 20 Nov 1782 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island and died before 1850.

17       vi.   Martha Barton (born on 9 Jul 1785 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island - died on 2 Feb 1853, buried in Windfall Cemetary, Tekonsha, Michigan)

        vii.   Rufus Barton was born on 27 Jun 1788 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island and died after 1850.

20     viii.   Nathan Sisson Barton (born on 8 May 1791 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island - died after 1870 in Burlington, Calhoun, Michigan)

         ix.   Lillis Turner Barton was born on 30 Aug 1793 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island and died after 1850.

          x.   Turner Barton was born on 24 May 1796 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island, died on 13 Aug 1873 at age 77, and was buried in Lansingburgh, Rensselaer, New York.

         xi.   Ebenezer Cole Barton was born on 14 Sep 1799 in Cambridge, Washington, New York and died after 1850.


35. Prudence Cole, daughter of Ebenezer Cole and Prudence Miller , was born on 22 Oct 1753 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island, died on 29 Nov 1845 in Lansingburgh, Rensselaer, New York at age 92, and was buried in The Village Cem..

General Notes: Source of birth and marriage is 1988 RI IGI.

The Burial Grounds of Lansingburgh, Rensselaer County, New York, Broderick, page 17. Buried in the Village Cemetery. Text indicated Prudence Barton (Mrs. Rufus Barton) born in Warren, RI Oct 22, 1753, died in Lansingburgh Nov 29, 1845.

Prudence married Rufus Barton 16 on 7 Apr 1771 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island. Rufus was born on 20 Aug 1749 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island 16 and died on 10 Jun 1807 in Lansingburg, Rensselaer, New York 16 at age 57.

40. Rufus Barton,16 son of Samuel Barton and Lillis Turner , was born on 20 Aug 1749 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island 16 and died on 10 Jun 1807 in Lansingburg, Rensselaer, New York 16 at age 57.

Rufus married Prudence Cole on 7 Apr 1771 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island. Prudence was born on 22 Oct 1753 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island, died on 29 Nov 1845 in Lansingburgh, Rensselaer, New York at age 92, and was buried in The Village Cem..

41. Prudence Cole, daughter of Ebenezer Cole and Prudence Miller , was born on 22 Oct 1753 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island, died on 29 Nov 1845 in Lansingburgh, Rensselaer, New York at age 92, and was buried in The Village Cem..

General Notes: Source of birth and marriage is 1988 RI IGI.

The Burial Grounds of Lansingburgh, Rensselaer County, New York, Broderick, page 17. Buried in the Village Cemetery. Text indicated Prudence Barton (Mrs. Rufus Barton) born in Warren, RI Oct 22, 1753, died in Lansingburgh Nov 29, 1845.

Prudence married Rufus Barton 16 on 7 Apr 1771 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island. Rufus was born on 20 Aug 1749 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island 16 and died on 10 Jun 1807 in Lansingburg, Rensselaer, New York 16 at age 57.

44. John Olds,18 son of James Olds and Sarah Kingsley , was born on 31 May 1757 in North Asford, Windham, Connecticutt and died about 1830 about age 73.

General Notes: The Olds Family of America and England says, "It is possible that he is the same line as the foregoing and may be the same person as the "John," brother of Daniel, but no proof of this has been obtainable. (In 1915, nor is there in 2000.)

For the purpose of this genealogy I am assuming that this John is the brother of Daniel and the son of James Ould mentioned on page 275 of the text. Anyone using this genealogy must consider that there is still no proof of this John's ancestry.

The text also says John was a farmer and a Revolutionary soldier and lived in Granville, N. Y.

There is a John Olds in the 1810 Washington Co., NY federa census. He and a female are over 45 years of age and have a boy 11 -15 and a girl 16 - 20. The children could have been Avery and Dolly.

The John Olds documented in The Olds Family text as the son of James could very well be this John. As the reader will see, there are coincidences in time and place. This is what the text says about him: John Olds (son of James), born May 31, 1757 North Ashford, Conn.; married Lucretia _______ (born 1750); enlisted in the Revolutionary Army, 1776, from Wells, Rutland Co., Vt. and was in the Battles of Trenton and Princeton, N. J.; in 1820 he was living in Wells, Vt., and in 1825 in Wilna, Jefferson Co., N. Y.; he was a pensioner of the Revolutionary War, and the above facts were taken from his signed statement in in the Pension Office, Washingtron, D. C.

The text lists his only child as John, born 1791; died November 21 1875, Wilna, Jefferson Co., N. Y.; married at Tolland, Mass., December, 1816, Orphana Fowler; he was a Drum Major in the Conn. Militia, War of 1812; moved to Tolland, Mass., about 1814 afterwards lived in Wilna, N. Y. (Wilna is no longer listed as a town; however, there is a Wilna township in Jefferson Co., NY about 20 miles ENE of Watertown, NY.)

General Notes: The Jordan/Stanchfield Family History written by Linda Von Rueden Troolin & Jan Jordan Lokensgard, 1994, Chapter 1 has:

Mark Schell married Delila Casler who was born in the Mohawk Valley and moved to Markham, Ontario, 24 miles north of Toronto. Their family was born here and the lived there until 1842 when he moved with his son Peter to Sanilac County, Michigan. Delila died in Markham before 1842.

Mark Schell died from an accident when he was crossing a creek stepping from stone to stone, with a washboard under his arm, missed his step and fell. The sharp edge of the washboard punctured his side and slowly he died from the results of his injury. During the time of his brother's illness, Henry then 75, would walk all the way from Ingersoll, Ontario to Sanilac County to visit his brother. They remained close to the end. Mark died in Worth, Sanilac County, Michigan, in June of 1845 and was buried in Bardwell Cemetery. Henry died at Ingersoll, Ontario, April 12, 1859.

64. Thomas Osborn,11 son of Joseph Osborn and Mary Hedges , was born on 13 Sep 1713 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York 11 and died on 27 Dec 1753 11 at age 40.

General Notes: The 1776 Census for East Hampton, Suffolk Co., NY listed Thomas 0121100.

These columns decode as: Males (above 50, 17-49, under 16) Females (above 16, under 16), Negroes (above 16, under 16).

East Hampton History, 1953, indicates he inherited "Pudding Hill."

Three Osborn brothers - Abraham, Jacob and Conklin, married three sisters - Phebe, Charity and Abigail, daughters of Stephen Hedges of Sagg. Jacob 6 and Conklin 6 moved to Blenheim Ridge (South Gilboa) N.Y. in the Catskills, where they raised families; some of their descendants have returned to E.H. Letters written to Abraham and Phebe Osborn, and to Jared and Ruth Hedges (shortly after leaving E.H.) in 1809 by Abigail Hedges Osborn are kept by J. Howard Hand of Wainscott.

It is likely that the name "Pudding Hill" applied since Revolutionary times to the place at the right hand corner of Woods Lane and Main Street as one enters from the west, concerns the family of Joseph 5. One of his wives must have been heroine of the incident put into verse years ago by a local ballad writer and set to music recently by Miss Louise Mulford of Amagansett. The story goes that the mistress of the house, one day during the British occupation of L.I. was busy boiling a berry pudding for noonday dinner (huckleberry or Montauk blackberry duff), when she was surprised by foraging British soldiers. Rather than feed the enemy, she threw the boiling hot kettle, pudding and all, down the sandy hill to the chagrin of the hungry invaders. It was only a few years ago that a handful of British uniform buttons was upturned by gardening operations on Pudding Hill. The place is owned today by John R. Peddy. 11

Thomas married Jane Conklin in 1739. Jane was born on 20 Sep 1720 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York and died on 8 Mar 1758 at age 37.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Deborah Osborn was born on 14 Feb 1742 in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York and died on 29 Nov 1753 at age 11.

         ii.   Thomas Osborn was born on 24 Feb 1744 in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York and died on 5 Jun 1788 at age 44.

        iii.   Jane Osborn was born on 14 Apr 1746 in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York and died on 27 Mar 1776 at age 29.

         iv.   Mary Osborn was born on 18 Apr 1749 in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York.

          v.   Elizabeth Osborn was born on 15 Jul 1751 in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York.

32       vi.   Cornelius Osborn (born on 15 Jan 1754 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York - died on 24 Sep 1810, buried in South End Burying Ground, East Hampton)


65. Jane Conklin, daughter of Cornelius Conklin and Deborah Mulford , was born on 20 Sep 1720 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York and died on 8 Mar 1758 at age 37. Ancestral File Number: 1D6S-8CF.

Jane married Thomas Osborn 11 in 1739. Thomas was born on 13 Sep 1713 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York 11 and died on 27 Dec 1753 11 at age 40.

66. Matthew Hedges,11 son of Stephen Hedges and Amy Mulford , was christened on 15 Jun 1735, 11 died on 27 May 1817 11 at age 81, and was buried in Jericho Cemetery, East Hampton, Suffolk Co, NY. 11

General Notes: The East Hampton History does not mention Matthew Hedges's first wife. His second wife was Naomi Wells who died May 25 1795 at age 40. That would place her birth at about 1755, which is much too early to be the mother of the first few children and certainly our Hannah who was born in 1766. Therefore, all children will be listed under Matthew's first marriage.

He lived at Baiting Hollow in Southold from 1766 to 1776. He signed the Association in 1775. He was a Private in Captain Josiah Lupton’s NY Company in 1775. He was a refugee to Connecticut during Revolutionary War, brought over by Captain Thomas Leete in Sept 1776 (Southold to Guilford); but no mention is made of the removal of his family. Having to seek refuge caused him much suffering, and cost his first wife her life. His two oldest daughters, Julia and Ruth, m. Corwin brothers, John and Abel. The mother, Hannah, and
three daughters, Julia, Ruth, and Charlotte, lie in the Cemetery at Baiting Hallow, a few rods from where Matthew lived, from 1766 to 1776. Soon after his return from Connecticut he went to East Hampton and
with his second wife, rests in a private burial plot on what was his farm. The baptisms of four children between 1768 and 1776, and one child in 1779, are recorded. A son, Matthew, bapt. Nov. 3, 1773.(Aquebogue Ch. Rec.) The baptisms of 11 more children are recorded at East Hampton.

68. Samuel Barton, son of Andrew Barton and Rebecca Low , was born in 1705 and died before 13 Apr 1752.

General Notes: The 1988 LDS IGI for RI indicates the marriage of Samuel Barton to Lilas Tanner 23 March 1737, Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island. However, Vital Records of Swansea shows that Book B: Marriages 1705-1775 indicates the marriage was performed March ye 23:1737/37 by Samuel Maxwell minister.

The source for William is the MA IGI that lists the parents as Samuel Barton and Lillis Turner. William is also listed as Captain William, b. June 4, 1745 in the Bates Collection, Vol. 54, page 121, as is Patience, Mar 26, 1739 and Benjamin, June 26, 1741.

See the notes for son Rufus for rational of including him as a child of Samuel Barton and Lillis Turner.

The Bates Collection, Vol 76, page 121 indicates Samuel's inventory was conducted on April 13, 1752.

The Barton Family manuscript has only two children for Samuel and Lillas (Tanner) Barton, Patience and Benjamin. There is a number 3 written in but there is no name.

Samuel married Lillis Turner on 23 Mar 1738 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island. Lillis was born on 26 Feb 1714 in , Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Patience Barton was born on 26 Mar 1739 in , Kent, Rhode Island.

         ii.   Benjamin Barton was born on 26 Jun 1741 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island.

34      iii.   Rufus Barton (born on 20 Aug 1749 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island - died on 10 Jun 1807 in Lansingburg, Rensselaer, New York)

         iv.   William Barton was born on 26 Oct 1745 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts.


69. Lillis Turner, daughter of William Turner and Patience Hale , was born on 26 Feb 1714 in , Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts. Ancestral File Number: 1004-VKK.

General Notes: Her husband, Samuel Barton apparently died sometime between 1749 when his last child was born and when his will was proved on April 13, 1752.

The NEHGS in Boston has an apparently original book entitled Manual of the Baptist Church of Warren, R. I. November 15, 1764 * March 1, 1886, published in Phenix, R. I. 1886. Member 29 is Ebenezer Cole and 30 is Lillis [Turner] [Barton] Cole. They joined with the original congregation Nov. 15, 1764.

There was a pen and ink addition in the margin indicating they had married in 28 June 1763. The text indicates Ebenezer was removed July 9, 1798 and an ink change indicates re 83-. It indicates Lillis was removed Mar 8, 1775. An ink change indicates ae 60 b. 26 Feb 1715.

Lillis married Samuel Barton on 23 Mar 1738 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island. Samuel was born in 1705 and died before 13 Apr 1752.

Lillis next married in 1763 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island.


70. Ebenezer Cole, son of Ebenezer Cole and Mehitable Luther , was born on 27 Oct 1715 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts and died on 9 Jun 1798 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts at age 82. Ancestral File Number: HP3Z-69.

General Notes: The Descendants of James Cole of Plymouth 1633, page 46-47 indicates Ebenezer Cole was a private, Captain Pleg Peck's Company, Colonel Carpenter's Regiment, enlisted Aug 3, 1780; was the deputy from Warren, 1760, '62, and '70.
Ebenezer Cole was the founder of "Cole's Hotel" in Warren, RI in 1762. This hotel became famous. In his will, dated Sept. 29, 1787, to his sons, Curtis, Edward, and Ebenezer, he gives land, which is described. To each of his daughters he gives small legacies. The balance of his property (including the hotel) he give to his youngest son, Benjamin. He to provide for his mother during her life.

Rhode Island Genealogical Register, Vol 5, page 313 contains the following will abstract:

Cole, Ebenezer, advanced in years. Will dated 29 Sep 1785, proved ca 1798, Pgs 197-198. Mentions: Sons Curtice Cole, Edward Cole, Ebenezer Cole, and Benjamin Cole. Daughters Rosebilla Child [both names unclear], Elizabeth married but no surname given, Marcy Sisson, Sarah Eddy, Ruth Thurber, Prudence Barton, and Robebeth no surname. Grandson Caleb Eddy. Land of the heirs of Amos Thomas and land of Allen Cole. Witn: William Barton, Allin Cole, Samuel Luther.

RCL note: His twelve children were all born in the same location. However, in 1747 their area was broken away from Swansea, Bristol County, Massachusetts and designated as Warren, Bristol County, Rhode Island.

Ebenezer married Prudence Miller on 29 Jan 1737 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island. Prudence was born on 16 Mar 1721 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts, died on 23 Aug 1762 at age 41, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.

        vii.   Edward Cole was born on 25 Oct 1751 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island.

35     viii.   Prudence Cole (born on 22 Oct 1753 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island - died on 29 Nov 1845 in Lansingburgh, Rensselaer, New York)

         ix.   Ebenezer Cole was born on 22 Feb 1756 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island.

          x.   Abigail Cole was born on 28 Dec 1758 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island.

        xii.   Roby Cole was born on 13 Dec 1761 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island.


71. Prudence Miller, daughter of Samuel Miller Lieutenant and Ruth Curtis , was born on 16 Mar 1721 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts, died on 23 Aug 1762 at age 41, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.

General Notes: The Kickemuit Cemetery, Warren, RI has the following inscription:

In Memory of Prudence Wife of Ebenezer Cole Esq who died August 28th 1762 in ye 42d year of her Age

Prudence married Ebenezer Cole on 29 Jan 1737 in Warren, Bristol, Rhode Island. Ebenezer was born on 27 Oct 1715 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts and died on 9 Jun 1798 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts at age 82.

General Notes: The Olds Family text says in 1770 he was one of the subscribers to the pews in the Congretional Church at Ashford, and marched on the Lexington alarm, 1775. He was possibly a son of Ebenezer Ould, son of Robert Ould. All of his children were born at North Ashford, Conn.

Readers must realize there is no proof that James is the son of Ebenezer.

Gary Brittian's Ancestry.com database says: In 1770 he was one of the subscribers to the pews in the Congregational Church at Ashford, and marched on the Lexington alarm, 1775. He was possibly a son of Ebenezer Ould, son of Robert Ould. All of his children were born at North Ashford, Conn. Gary Brittain Note: If he was a son of Ebenezer Ould, son of Robert, then the book "Olds of England and America" establishes a pedigree of the family in an unbroken line to Roger Wold (pronounced Old) who lived at Yolthorpe, in Yorkshire, England, in 1189 during the rein of Richard I. A copy of the book available through the Inter-library loan act and can be ordered though your local library or you may contact me at my current email address for help.

======================================

James Olds, Also listed as Oles and Ould(s), has origins in the area of Ashford and Windham-Hampton, Hartford co., Connecticut.
Although his parentage is not known by me, there were also several other Olds' living in Hartford Co., Conn.
Robert Ould (Olde) of Sherbourne, Dorsetshire, Eng. (b. 1645) married Susannah Hanford on Dec. 31, 1669 in Windsor, Hartford, CT. His first wife died,and then he married Dorothy Granger. As a third wife he married Joanna Adams, but I don't know if there were any children fronm this union.
This Robert is probably the greatgrandfather of James Olds. His sons from the first marriage are:
Robert (b.9 oct.1670); Jonathan (b.24 dec. 1692; d.19 Dec 1696; no wife listed); Hanford
(b.24 Mar. 1677); William (b.28 Aug. 1680).
Sons from Robert's second wife are:
John (b. 11 Jul 1691); Ebenezer (b. 22 Jan 1693); Josiah (b.4 Mar 1695; d. 28 Dec. 1712; no wife listed); Jonathan (b.8 June 1698); Nathaniel (b. 2 Mar. 1702), and Joseph (b. 3 Feb. 1704; no wife listed).
Again, I have no proof that James Olds is descended from this Olds family, only that they hailed from the same area.

The facts that I do have on him are as follows:
"James Oles of Ashford (married) Sarah Kingsley (of Windahm-Hampton) Mar 21, 1754"
(Bailey,F.W., edit., "Early Connecticut Marriages Prior to 1800", vol. 5, p. 72).
Sarah KIngsley was baptized 10 Dec., 1727 (Windam church records). She was the daughter of John Kingsley (son of John Kingsley and his wife, Sarah Sabin, a Mayflower descendant) and his wife Elizabeth Bass (dau. of John Bass and wife Elizabeth Neale).
Here is a list of their children. All are listed as being born in Ct.

Ebenezer 1755
John 1757
Daniel 1759
Sarah 1761
Timothy 1763
Tryphena 1765
Eliger 1767
Ellidise 1769
Elidicy 1767 (twin of Eliger?)

John, Daniel, and Timothy fought in the Revolutionary War. All three are said to have fought at Valley Forge.

As far as James Olds being in NY, I know that his son Timothy moved to Pompey, Onondaga co., NY in 1798. I don't have James' death date, but the list if his children provided in the query corresponds to the list I have. If you have any further information that you can share about James, I would be very interested to hear about it. I hope that my information leads you in the right direction! By the way, I have an extensive ancestry chart of James' wife Sarah Kingsley, if anyone is interested.

The first recorded message I have of James was in "Attleborough MA marriages", page 43: "Fuller, Elezebeth and James Owls, both of Attleborough int. May 12, 1744." Also, in the same book under "O" "Owls, James and Elizabeth Fuller both of Attleborough, int. May 12, 1744. Their first two children are listed in "Attleborough Births, page 188: "Ouls, Bethiah, d. of James and Elezebeth, April 6, 1745", same page: "Ould, James, son of James and Elezebeth Fuller, Aug 21, 1747." James Ould and Elezebeth were found in North Ashford, Windham County, CT in 1750, where Elezebeh died in 1753 and where he married Sarah Kingsley in 1754. This information researched by professional genealogist hired to research Olds connections to the Mayflower.

James and Elezebeth were found in North Ashford Windham County CT in 1750 where Elezebeth died.

28 Dec 1998 email from Joe Osborn
Got in the pension papers for Eli and Moses Olds. Eli married Laura Cherrytree in 1806 in Cayugo County, NY. Remember how I thought that it might be our Elijah in the 1800 Cayuga county NY census, along with James, who I think is his father? Marilyn Bourn said that she has a Moses Olds whose probate indicated that Eli, Sarah, and Ira were his siblings. Guess who Moses' father was? According to the pension papers, it is James; and Moses was forn in NY, died in MI. I have not been able to find a record yet that puts Elijah, Briggs, and Henry all together. Still working on it. 1 Jun 1999 email from Angie G Olds (daughter in law of Granville Olds). Excerpt as follows: I grew up in Ripley County, Indiana - just two counties east of Jackson County. I've been overt there a couple of times but just briefly. I found some land deeds for Elijah Olds and his wife Olive. They are dated 1820s and 1830s. This is probably Henry Forest's father.

Angie could be on to something here! I had read this message and assumedthat this Elijah was Henry's son. But, his son would have not been born yet, and Henry did name a daughter Olive. And, I'd forgotten that we do not have a name for Henry's mother yet!! (we got sidetracked with the Cherrytree connection, which as through Elijah's younger brother Eli's wife, Laura Cherrytree). I admit to being puzzled as to why Elijah Sr. and his wife Olive would name one son, Briggs Cherrytree Olds, after his sister-in-law's maiden name, but perhaps a Cherrytree served as god-parent; or perhaps, as Briggs Cherrytree Olds was born in NY, perhaps he was born at the home of the Cherrytrees, or a Cherrytree wife served as mid-wife.......who knows. It's obviously some tribute/namesake but not through direct descent as is usually the case. And without knowing whether the name was chosen by Elijah or by his wife, it's hard to know exactly what relationship or event was being gratefully/affectionately commemorated. 20,24

Also, remember I mentioned Sarah's aunt by the same name? I don't have all of my records here with me in Texas,but you could easily find her exact parentage through the internet or a family history center at a Morman church--they have the neatest collection af compact discs for computer. Here is what I do have written down from the Seattle library for her: from "Early Conn. Marriages..." by Fred w. Bailey,
"Nathan Lillie and Sarah KIngsley Aug.26 1753"

Also mentioned in Windham church records is "Mrs. Sarah Kingsley d. Ap.23 1842 99yrs 8 mos 16 days in Windham". This isn't either of the two previous Sarahs;
the age doesn't match up,and the other two were Kingsleys by birth, not marriage.

Finally, check DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution),; I seem to remember finding her mentioned with James Olds (Oles/Oulds). As far as her Mayflower lineage goes, this is verified in "Five Generations of Mayflower Desendants", Vol 5, pg. 135. Again, If I had my research with me, I could simply copy it for you and mail it off.

The Jordan/Stanchfield Family History written by Linda Von Rueden Troolin & Jan Jordan Lokensgard, 1994, Chapter 1 has:

The following information was taken from the book SCHELL compiled by Christian Denissen, Pastor of St. Charles Church, Detroit, Michigan in 1896.

The facts are quoted or paraphrased from that writing. Mary Elizabeth Schell's mother was Delila Casler and her father was Mark Schell. Mark was a twin born September 22, 1770.

Mark's father, John Christian Schell was born in Germany in the city of Baden-Baden around 1730, the son of N. N. Schell. John Christian and his brother John Schell came to this country as young men and settled about four miles north of the village of Herkimer, New York, in the Mohawk Valley, at an area called German Flats. They bought adjoining farms and married. John marrying Barbara ? and John Christian marrying Maria Elizabeth Petri who was born about 1835, the daughter of Johan Jost Petri and Cordelia DeMuth. John Christian and Maria had three daughters and five sons.

John Christian owned a large and prosperous
farm at a place that is still called Schell's Bush. He had received a liberal education in Germany and was a good scholar often busy with his papers and books. He was honest, respected and became the leading man of the district.

At the time of the Revolutionary War, Tyron County had a population of 10,000 under the influence of a few rich loyalists, who did their best to hold the people of the Mohawk Valley loyal to the English crown. However, it didn't work for long and Tyron County wrote a letter May 18, 1775, to the Committee of Albany assuring them of their support and reassuring the Continental Congress of their pledge to "be free or die".

John and John Christian Schell were members of General Herkimer's militia in January of 1776. In 1777 they were at war with the English. Tory officers were found everywhere leading bands of marauding Indians to plunder and massacre the colonists.

The colonists started to build their own forts to protect themselves. They were built of hewn timber. The first story had no windows, but loopholes through which those inside could fire upon the enemy. The second story projected over the first by two or three feet. Through this projection there were also openings through which a person could fire upon their enemy if they approached the fort to force an entry. John Christian Schell having the money, built his own fort on his farm and supplied it with arms and ammunition.

As the war went on the outlook for the patriots grew bleak and the spring of 1781 was the low point of the revolution. The Mohawk Valley had suffered more than any other district in the county. For seven hellish years it was invaded and overrun by an untiring and relentless enemy, Finally the whole area took on a look of desolation from the many battles fought, dwellings burned and murders committed.

John Schell, John Christian's brother, had become wounded during his long time spent with the American Army. He returned home ragged and literally naked having to hold his pants up with his hand. He could no longer fight for the patriot cause.

In the summer of 1781 the massacres and violence accelerated to the point that most people had taken refuge at Fort Dayton, 4 miles from Schell's Bush. One of the exceptions was John Christian Schell. He remained with his family attending to his farm and having trust that his fort would protect him should the occasion arise. His son Christian was away in the Army so he had only sons Denis and Frederick who were old enough to fight.

The Tories planned an attack on the Schells. They assembled a band of Tories and Indians and waited close to the farm for a chance to ambush the Schells.

John Christian and his sons were in the fields cutting peas and saw the assailants. They quickly went to the fort two miles away and the enemy did not follow. Mrs. Schell and the smaller children were there. The next day they left the fort to go back to their fields but were delayed by having to kill a large bear which had been flushed out of his normal haunts by the waiting Tories and Indians. The Schells were just outside the barnyard, over the fence, when they saw the Tories and Indians racing towards the corn-crib. The twins were there with the family dog, having gone to bring a corn-fan home. The Indians cut them off from their return, capturing one twin at the corn-crib. The other twin holding the Indians somewhat at bay through the dog, ran for home and succeeded in reaching the barnyard fence. However, the large dog who had kept himself, between the boy and the Indians during the chase, jumped the fence first. The Indians captured the boy while he tried to scale the high fence. They held him in front of them while they backed out of gunshot range. The twins were eleven years old at the time.

This incident started the famous battle at Schell's Bush. On August 6, 1781, at 2:00 p.m., Donald McDonald led a band of 66 Tories and Indians against John Schell, his wife Maria and seven of their children. Not exactly good odds, but the Schells had the advantage of the fort. They were working in their fields when they saw the attack coming but managed to escape to their fort. The battle started once they reached it, and continued until late in the day.

During the battle, Maria Schell loaded muskets. The Tory leader, Scotsman Donald McDonald, made several attempts to set fire to the building but each time was turned back. The stubborn Scot, alone, tried to crowbar open the door, but Schell shot him in the leg with his blunderbuss and in a surprise move, quickly opened the door and pulled McDonald inside the fort. Schell wanted the ample supply of ammunition McDonald carried as their own supplies were almost extinguished. They took the ammunition from McDonald and fired it upon his own men.

The Schells had killed and wounded several of their enemies and they withdrew to rest. Schell went upstairs and sang a religious hymn. Soon the enemy regrouped and rushed the fort, five of them sticking the muzzles of their muskets through the loopholes to force the Schell's surrender. However, Maria Schell took an ax and bent the barrels of their muskets so they could not be fired. The Schells drove them back with gunfire.

Just as it was getting dark John Christian Schell hatched an ingenious plan.
He ran to the second story of the fort and shouted to his wife in a loud voice that Captain Small was coming to their aid. To fool the enemy he hollered even louder, "Captain Small march your company around this side of the house! Captain Getman you had better wheel your men off to the left and come up that side" There were no troops but Schell's directions were given with such genuine authority and command that the strategy worked and the enemy ran taking the twins Henry and Mark as prisoners.

McDonald the captured, wounded Tory leader, was left in the fort with provisions and the Schells left for the safety of Fort Dayton. A few Indians had remained to see what had happened to their leader. Later hearing or seeing nothing of the Schells, approached the fort and went inside to search for McDonald. They found him too weak to travel, so they left word with McDonald, for Schell, that if their leader was well taken care of the twins would not be harmed. The next day McDonald was taken by Captain Small to Fort Dayton where his leg was amputated and he died from loss of blood. When Mc Donald was captured he wore a silver mounted tomahawk with 30 scalp notches. It was taken from him by John Christian Schell.

The battle had resulted in the killing of eleven Indians outright, and the wounding of a dozen or more, nine of whom died during their retreat, with the twins to Canada. None of the Schells had been hurt but they were very distraught over the loss of the twins. In the beginning they had hoped the boys would be returned or escape but as time went on they became convinced the twins were lost to them forever. The abduction of his twins did not set well with John Christian Schell and he promised a "warm reception" to any Tory or Indian who ventured near his place.

The enemy on the other hand who had sustained a loss of dead and wounded totaling nearly one half their number, 29 out of 66, swore vengeance against Schell and his family and constantly lurked near his farm. They surprised Eve Schell one of John's daughters in the woods, scalping her and leaving her for dead. A pipestem attached to the tomahawk, had become fastened in her head; when she regained consciousness, she pulled it out and struggled home. Happily she recovered, married a Mr. Plank and became a mother.

Christian Schell John's son returned home from the Army, after many years of service, the summer of 1782. In July of 1782, the Indians retaliated from their earlier defeat by ambushing Johan Christian Schell and two of his sons, Denis 19, and Frederick 17, while they were working in their wheat fields.
John Christian and Dennis were mortally wounded. The father called upon his sons, not to allow the enemy to scalp him. The boys kept the enemy at bay and would not retreat. Neighbors hearing the shooting came to the rescue and chased the Indians off. John Christian died three days after the attack and Dennis nine days after being injured. The revengeful Tories and Indians later set fire to the Schell's fort. John's rare books and papers were destroyed and the famous McDonald tomahawk probably was lost at the same time. Johan Christian's wife, Maria Elizabeth Petri Schell became a widow. With one son dead and two in captivity she still had six children to care for. Frederick was wounded in the leg and this caused him to be lame the rest of his life.

The war was coming to a close. The country was exhausted. Tyron County, whose name was changed about this time to Montgomery, had been laid to waste. There were 300 widows and 2,000 orphaned children.

The twins remained captive for another six years, after their father's death They were left with the Indians and the boys got along very well with them, even learning the Indian language. The Indians became quite attached to them too. They remained friends with the Indians the rest of their lives.

A Captain Laws, an officer in the British army negotiated the twins away from the Indians and kept them in his care in Canada. Mark was placed out as an apprentice to learn the trade of tailoring. Henry became the favorite of the Captain and was his companion in various journeys. It has also been recorded that twin Henry Schell, during his captivity in Canada from 1780 through 1788 lived for two years under the command of General Murray In Quebec. Six years with Captain George Laws at Quebec, and at Paspebiac on the northern shore of the Bay of Chaleur, on the Gaspe Peninsula. It is uncertain if his brother Mark was with him during this entire time or held at a different location. The boys were growing increasingly more homesick as they got older. Henry thought about staying with Captain Laws but wanted to return to see his mother before making his decision. Captain Laws agreed and the boys were released to make their own way home.

When they arrived home much had changed with their family and they were brought up to date on what had happened since their capture. Also of course, there was a joyous reunion with family and friends to mark the occasion of their safe return home. A few years later their mother Maria died. All the children married in the 1790's in the Mohawk Valley. One by one they moved to Canada until Henry being the last one in the Mohawk Valley joined his brothers and sisters in Canada.

125. Marie Elizabeth Petri,27 daughter of Johan Jost Petri and Cordelia Demuth .

General Notes: The Jordan/Stanchfield Family History written by Linda Von Rueden Troolin & Jan Jordan Lokensgard, 1994, Chapter 1 has:

Interestingly, Maria Elizabeth Petri Schell's parents, Johan Jost Petri and Cordelia DeMuth, were also captured during a different war. Johan Jost Petri was magistrate of the area in the Mohawk Valley known as German Flats. The lots Johan Jost Petri owned there were located in the center of what is now Herkimer New York. Johan was also a merchant and supplied goods to the British military. A record exists showing the sales of supplies to the garrison at Fort Oswego on Lake Ontario.
German Flats was attacked during the French and Indian War, in 1757. The Petri's survived a general massacre and the destruction of livestock and buildings. Johan, Cordelia, and their son and his family were taken as captives to Canada. They are recorded on prisoner lists which note their release at the end of the war. Johan died in 1770 at the age of 84. (The history on Rosanna's ancestors was quoted or paraphrased from research done by P. Don Porter.)

This article about Maria Schell has been transcribed from the original and contributed by Carol and Charles Marston. Does anyone know the complete article, date, author, and paper?

THE ANGEL AT THE FORTRESS GATE

The Angel at the Gate of this little Schell's Bush Blockhouse was none other than Maria Petree Schell. May God Bless her! And Maria Schell it was, who with the echo of every barking gun rushed to replace the exploded charge.

But loading muskets of that period was not the simple process of the present. To eject an exploded shell and insert a new one in the rifle of today takes no time at all. But there was nothing of that in the guns of the Schell Blockhouse. Henry Quackenbush and the Remington boys had yet to dawn in Herkimer County.

So, Maria Schell's job was far more complicated. First in order, the powder had to be measured out and poured in the muzzle of the gun. Then it must be wadded and rammed down. Next, the shot had to be inserted in the same way. And that, too, wadded and rammed down. Finally a percussion cap had to replace the one exploded. With every discharge this process had to be repeated. And all of this gruelling service we owe to that great-hearted defender of her embattled home, Maria Petree Schell. This is why the Savages were so often forced to seek safety in the forest.

The Lady of the Blockhouse.

My Mother insisted that Maria Schell was a daughter of Johan Joost Petree, militant Patriot of the Mohawk valley. This is not confirmed in Herkimer, but Cutter's Genealogical History has: "Johan Joost Petree died in 1770, leaving four daughters. One of the daughters married John Christian Schell, hero of Schell's Bush." Mother was so proud of the heroism of Maria Petree Schell. There never was any (---). Thought, quite so good as (---) of the Blockhouse. Mother never tired telling of the thrilling deeds of that invincible lady, of the (---). (unreadable text.) Mother love which stood adamant against every foe, which gave her all in every crisis. It matters not, she said, where we are, or when, thoughts of Mother will well up and fill and overflow until consciousness is submerged in the flood of precious memories that surge with the calm assurance, the blessed peace, of Mother love.

We may rear monuments to our Mothers. We may engrave their virtues in granite and bronze, but art has no element that can incarnate the dear form we know as Mother. Like the tendrils of that illimitable love with which our lives are intertwined with each passing day.

Lady Blasts The Battering Ram

Then Mother described the ferocious battering ram of the Savages. Cutting down a straight sizable sappling at the edge of the forest, they lopped off the limbs and top, making a formidable weapon about sixty feet long. The fifty husky Red skins, twenty -five on each side, grabbed that log and started on a madly plunging dash for the Blockhouse door. But there was one very important factor with which the Indian failed to reckon. "The Angel at the Gate". With the savages plunging headlong, butt-ended for the door, Maria Petree Schell grabbed her ready guns and with unerring aim brought down the leading Red skins on each side of the log, fumbling things topsy turvy and forcing the rest of the onrushing mob to drop their battering ram and run. Three times that exploit was repeated and every time, Maria Schell's faithful guns proved an insurmountable barrier between her front door and the infuriated savage mob.

General Notes: East Hampton History, 1953, page 490 indicates neither Judge Hedges nor other genealogists mention any wife of Joseph 3 earlier than Mary, dau. of William and Hannah Stratton Hedges whom he m. 1704; but it seems quite likely that he married earlier. A "Mary Talmage" is mentioned in his will made April 26, 1739, proved 1746 as a wife of Joseph; in Sept. 1696 the "wife of Joseph" died; and Elizabeth, dau. of Joseph, m. Dec. 6, 1711, Thomas Baker Jr. By Mary Hedges, b. 1672, d. Aug. 2, 1752 he had children Joseph, Jeremiah, Mary, Danial Baker Jr.; Thomas. Joseph 3 like his father, held various Town offices.

Rev. Nathaniel Hunting set down in the E.H. Church Records: "2 Oct. 1743, Joseph Osborn son of Thomas Osborn, Deceased, sunk down and died in ye meeting house just after morning prayer was begun abt a quarter after 10, aged almost 83 years, he never spoke a word but expired at once."

Then on August 2, 1752: "Died ye Widow Osborn, aged 81 and mother of Jeremiah, Joseph, and Thomas Osborn. Six persons have died in less than Six Days. Never did East Hampton know the like. O that for holiness to yt there never were the like."

Joseph 3 left to his son, Deacon Joseph 4, the homestead now Maidstone Arms property.

136. Andrew Barton,28 son of Benjamin Barton and Susanna Gorton , was born in 1675 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island and died on 19 Apr 1723 at age 48.

General Notes: Several of the IGI entries for Andrew Barton and Rebecah Low indicate the marriage date as about 1695 and 1702. The marriage place is Swanzea, Warren, Rhode Island. Since this area was part of Massachusetts until 1747 it was probably Swansea, Massachusetts.

The Barton Family is a handwritten, bound manuscript in the Rhode Island Historical Society Library. It is the source of the names, birth dates, and marriages of Andrew's children. The back of the manuscript is signed by a M. A. Benns, 1942.

General Notes: Inscriptions in Kickemuit Cemetery, Warren, R.I. indicates the following:

Here lyeth the Body of Ebenezer Cole aged 48 and dyed September 4th 1719.

In fact, there are many Coles, Luthers, Millers, and some Bartons buried here. See Genealogies of Rhode Island Families, Vol 2, Roberts, 1989, page 655-664. (Darlene and Roy Leggitt visited the Kickemuit Cemetery during their visit to Rhode Island in 1997.)

The Cole text does indicate that both Ebenezer and Mehitable Cole are buried in the Kickemuit burying ground.

Ebenezer married Mehitable Luther in 1697 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts. Mehitable was born on 26 Aug 1676 in Swansea, Bristol, Mass., died on 18 Nov 1764 in Warren, Bristol, RI at age 88, and was buried in Kickemuit, Burying Ground, MA.

General Notes: Another source indicates birth location as , New London, Connecticut.

Source of birth and parents is 1988 RI IGI. It indicates birth as 26 Aug 1676.

This agrees with her inscription in the Kickemuit Cemetery, Warren, RI.

In Memory of Mehetible Cole Wife of Mr. Ebenezer Cole, who died Nov. ye 18th Dom. 1764 in ye 89nd year of her Age.

The Luther Family in America pages 1260 says Mehitable (Luther) Cole lived her entire life in Swansea. Her nine children as here given were taken from an old book with Swansea Historical Society in 1948. Her husband was the son of Hugh Cole and Mary Foxwell; Mary was daughter of Richard Foxwell and Ann Shelly; Hugh was son of James (1) Cole and Mary Lobel; Mary was daughter of Mattien Lobel, a celebrated botanist and physician to King James 1, who discovered the medicinal properties of the Lobella plant.

Mehitable married Ebenezer Cole in 1697 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts. Ebenezer was born about 1671 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts, died on 4 Sep 1719 in , Warren, Rhode Island about age 48, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.

142. Samuel Miller Lieutenant, son of Robert Millard and Charity Thurber , was born on 17 Feb 1694 in Rehoboth, , Massachusetts, died on 6 Apr 1748 in Johnston, , Rhode Island at age 54, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.

General Notes: The Detroit Society for Genealogical Research Magazine, page 157 contains the following:

For a short time after his second marriage Samuel Miller lived in Bristol (then the shire town of Bristol Co., Mass., but now in Rhode Island); in 1718, 1719, and again in 1722 he was identified as a cordwainer (shoemaker), and in 1720 he was called "malster." During this same period Samuel, like his uncle Nathanial Millard and a number of his older relatives, bought and sold real estate in Ashford, Conn.

In 1722 Samuel moved to Swansea, where he took up ship building. From 27 Dec. 1723 for the remainder of his life he was described as a shipwright of Swansea (until Warren was set off as a separate town in 1746). Between 1723 and 1729 he bought up from his brothers and sisters their undivided shares in an eight acre plot inherited from their father; this property on the north side of Belcher's Cove near Brooks Pasture Point became, with surrounding areas, the locations of his shipwright's shop.

Probably this business was built up without any sizeable financial backing.
On 1 Oct. 1733, Nathaniel Bosworth of Bristol, cooper, secured a judgement against Samuel Millard of Swansea, shipwright, for a debt of £38.05.07 plus court costs, making a total of £43.08.01, which was paid on 27 July 1734. Nevertheless, indications are that the shipbuilding enterprise soon outgrew its location; between 1733 and 1737 Samuel bought additional property in Swansea, including nine lots laid out in Brooks Pasture. He also owned land in Barrington.

On 5 Feb. 1741/42, Samuel Miller, Gentleman, and his wife Ruth, Nathan Miller, shipwright all of Swansea, and Samuel Miller of Barrington, shipwright, deeded to Samuel Bowen of Swansea, four and one-half acres in Swansea. Witness: Barnard Miller. On 9 Feb. 1746/7, Samuel Miller of Warren, gentleman, and wife Sarah deeded to Samuel Miller Jr. shipwright 16 acres and dwelling house in Warren, reserving a right of way to the ferry.

The will of Samuel Miller, Gentleman, of Warren, dated 10 March 1747/8, proved 11 April 1748, bequeathed his wife Sarah, the household goods brought with her; to eldest son, Nathan Miller, one-half the real estate and the silver hilted sword; to his son Samuel, the other half the real estate; to daughters, Prudence, wife of Ebenezer Cole; Ruth, wife of Caleb Carr; Rebackah, wife of Jeremiah Brown; and Abigail Miller; to Mary Coomer, "daughter of my wife", fifteen pounds at age 18; to negro man-servant Prince, his freedom. Sons Nathan and Samuel Miller to be executors. The money old tenor, £573.13.06; in silver money, £7.14.06; three negroes, shop and goods valued at £1293.11.05 1/2.

His rank as lieutenant is derived from his second wife Ruth's tombstone inscription in 1742 identifying her as the wife of Lieut. Samuel Miller. His own inscription in the Kickemuit Cemetery at Warren is: In Memory of Samuel Miller Esq. died April ye 6th 1748 in ye 56th Year of his Age.

(Notice that the surname MILLER and MILLARD are both used. The LDS International Genealogical Index has many entries using both of these names applicable to Samuel, his siblings, parents, and children.)

Samuel married Ruth Curtis . Ruth was born in 1700 in Scituate, Plymouth, Massachusetts, died on 20 Apr 1742 at age 42, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Nathan Miller Col was born on 21 Aug 1717 in Bristol, Bristol, Massachusetts, died on 6 May 1762 at age 44, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.

         ii.   Samuel Miller was born on 7 Feb 1719 in Bristol, Bristol, Massachusetts.

71      iii.   Prudence Miller (born on 16 Mar 1721 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts - died on 23 Aug 1762, buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island)

         iv.   Ruth Miller was born on 22 Dec 1725 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts and died in Jun 1794 at age 68.

          v.   Rebecca Miller was born on 29 Jul 1728 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts and died on 3 Oct 1808 in North Cem, Warren, Rhode Island at age 80.

         vi.   Abigail Miller was born on 13 Aug 1731 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts, died on 31 Oct 1757 in Warren, Bristol, Massachusetts at age 26, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.

Samuel next married Sarah Carpenter on 17 Feb 1715 in Swansea, , Massachusetts. Sarah was born about 1689, died on 17 Aug 1715 about age 26, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.

General Notes: Inscriptions in Kickemuit Cemetery, Warren, R.I. indicates the following:

Here lyes ye Body of Sarah ye Wife of Samuel Millerd ye daughter of Joseph Carpenter aged about 26 years & died August ye 17, 1715.

Samuel next married Sarah Rogers . Sarah was born about 1705, died on 10 Aug 1758 about age 53, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.

General Notes: She was the widow of Rev. John Commers, by whom she had a daughter Marry Coomer, born 14 Jun 1731.

Inscriptions in Kickemuit Cemetery, Warren, R.I. indicates the following:

In Memory of Sarah the Wife of Samuel Miller Esq. Deceased, Who died Aug. 10th A.D. 1758 in ye 53d Year of her Age.


143. Ruth Curtis, daughter of Benjamin Curtis and Mary Sylvester , was born in 1700 in Scituate, Plymouth, Massachusetts, died on 20 Apr 1742 at age 42, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.

General Notes: Her tombstone inscription in the Kickemuit Cemetery, Warren, Rhode Island reads: In Memory of Mrs. Ruth Miller ye Wife of Lieut. Samuel Miller, Decd April ye 20th 1742 in ye 52d Year of her Age.

This date rather firmly fixes her birth as about 1690. This creates a problem in determining Ruth Curtis' ancestry. The LDS International Genealogical Index contains two references to a Ruth Curtis that logically could be our ancestor.

One record indicates a Ruth Curtis who was born 6 July 1690 in Salem, Essex, Massachusetts. Her parents were William Curtis and his wife Judith Needham.

Another record indicates a Ruth Curtis who was born 14 June 1700 at Scituate, Plymouth, Massachusetts. Her parents were Benjamin Curtis and his wife Mary Sylvester.

Our Ruth did not name any of her children Benjamin, William, Judith, or Mary. However, her daughter Prudence Miller who married Ebenezer Cole did name two of her children Benjamin and Mary. Ruth's son Nathan also named a daughter Mary.

Ruth's birth in 1690 would have made her 27 years old when her first child was born in 1717. Birth in 1700 would have made her 17. One is too old and one is too young.

Some of daughter Prudence Miller ancestral history involves residents of Scituate, Massachusetts and none resided in Salem, Massachusetts.

Scituate is approximately 35 miles from Rehoboth where Samuel and Ruth lived just after their marriage. Salem is on the other side of Boston and over 50 miles from Rehoboth.

The above factors lead me to lean slightly toward the Ruth Curtis who was born to Benjamin Curtis and Mary Sylvester. Therefore, I am including them as our Ruth's parents.

Ruth married Samuel Miller Lieutenant . Samuel was born on 17 Feb 1694 in Rehoboth, , Massachusetts, died on 6 Apr 1748 in Johnston, , Rhode Island at age 54, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.

176. Ebenezer Ould 29 was born on 22 Jan 1693 in Suffield, Hartford, Connecticut and died on 28 Oct 1732 in Suffield, Hartford, Connecticut at age 39.

General Notes: The Olds Family text gives very little information about this Ebenezer. It mentions his children as Dorothy, Rebeckah, Prudence, Ebenezer, and Isaac.

The author, Edson B. Olds, assumes this Ebenezer may have also been the father of James Ould. While there is no proof of this, I (RCL) am including this link so as to connect to Ebenezer's established Olds ancestry. The reader must seriously question this before incorporating it into any other genealogy.

Ebenezer married Rebecca Temple on 7 Nov 1718 in Concord, Middlesex, Massachusets. Rebecca died in Oct 1746.

The child from this marriage was:

88        i.   James Olds (born in 1724 in North Ashfield Windham County CT - died before 1824, buried in Chittenango Madiosn County NY)


177. Rebecca Temple, daughter of Temple and Unknown , died in Oct 1746.

Rebecca married Ebenezer Ould on 7 Nov 1718 in Concord, Middlesex, Massachusets. Ebenezer was born on 22 Jan 1693 in Suffield, Hartford, Connecticut and died on 28 Oct 1732 in Suffield, Hartford, Connecticut at age 39.

Rebecca next married John Towsley on 12 May 1736.


178. John Kingsley Jr.,20,23,30,31 son of John Kingsley and Sarah Sabin , was born on 26 Feb 1695 in Rehoboth, Bristol County, MA 23 and died after 9 Feb 1754 in Windham Becket CT 23 .

General Notes: See notes under wife, Elizabeth.

John Kingsley sold 33 acres in the Second Society in Windham to Benjamin Bidlack January 17, 1749.

There is no probate record for him in Windham District, and no death record has been found.

Rosalie Bisconer has different marriage information: December 25, 1717, Braintree, Norfolk, Massachusetts.

John Kingsley's first wife was Elizabeth; she is the mother of all hischildren, Freedom, Eldad, Enos, Edward and Renewed. His second wife was Mary, widow of Richard Jones, whose maiden name was believed, but not proved, to be Thatcher (KINGSLEY FAMILY OF AMERICA; HISTORY OF REHOBOTH,MA; MAYFLOWER FAMILIES IN PROGRESS JOHN BILLINGTON; DESCENDANTS OF CAPTAIN JOHN JOHNSON). Eldad Kingsley d. Rehoboth, MA, 30 Aug. 1679(REHOBOTH VR; HISTORY OF SWANSEA, MA; KINGSLEY FAMILY OF AMERICA). He had 6 children: Elizabeth, John, Samuel, Jonathan, Mary, and Nathaniel, all recorded at Rehoboth (REHOBOTH VR). Hezekiah Kingsley had 6 children: Thomas, Elizabeth, Jonathan, Lettice, Hezekiah, and David, all born at Swansea, MA (SWANSEA VR). The Hezekiah Kingsley who marched to Tiverton was the son. They did not change their name to Kinsley; the Stephen Kinsley branch spells their name that way.

This apparently is a well established line. The LDS FamilySearch.org database includes many additional generations.
Descendants of Deacon Samuel & Ann Bass: Elizabeth Bass, b. Braintree, Mass., 5 Sep. 1696, d. __. m. 25 Dec. 1717 Windham, Conn.,, John Kingsley, b. 26 Feb 1694/5, Rehobeth, Mass., d. 17 May 1732/33, Becker, Mass.

248. Johann Christ Schell, son of Christgen Schell and Anna Gertraut Mann , was born from 1697 to 1703 of Pfuhl, , Germany.

General Notes: Source: More Palatine Families, Henry Z. Jones, Jr., 1991. p230

The actual bpt. of this child is difficult to determine, as Christ Schell and Anna Gertraut had "A Son" bpt. Dom 6 p. Trin.: 1703 (?), and "A Son" bpt. on Dom. Oculi: 1697 - both of whom had male sp. named "Christ"; thus either of these two bpts. might be the correct one for the boy aged 11 on the 1711 Beilstein List (which is sometimes "off" as to exact ages when compared to an actual bpt. record). Johann Christ Schell, s/o Christ Schell of Pfuhl, md. 29 Oct 1723 Anna Elisabeth, d/o Christoffel Zebrung of Ritzhausen. The 1665 Beilstein Lists for "Retzhausen" mentions Best Zehrung and wife Kortell with their son Christoffel, aged 5 yrs.; the 1711 list for Ritzhausen notes Christoffel Zehrung, aged 53 yrs. After their marriage, Johann Christ and Anna Elisabetha Schell moved to the nearby village of Bach and had issue:

+ Anna. bpt. Dom. 15 Trin.: 1725 - sp.: Joh. Theiss Weber of Marienberg, and Anna - w/o Johannes Steupp of Pfuhl. Anna was conf. at Bad Marienberg in 1739. She md. in N.Y. Augustinus Hess (HJ).

Elsa Maria, bpt. Dom. 4. Epiph.: 1727 - sp.: Hans Henrich Schell of Ritzhausen and Elsa Maria - d/o Christoffel Zehhung of Ritzhausen. She was conf in 1742.

+ Anna Catharina, bpt. Dom. 20 Trin.: 1728 - sp.: Joh. Henrich - s/o Henrich Zehrung of Ritzhausen, and Anna Catharina - d/o Tonges Rubsamen at Bach. Anna Catharina, d/o Johann Christ Schell of Bach, md. 25 July 1751 Johann Henrich, s/o Johann Thonges Witterstein of Hoff. This then explains the connection between the Schell=Wiederstein families in the Mohawk Valley.

+ Johann Christ(1), bpt. Dom... (Feb) 1731 - sp.: Joh. Christ Schell of Langenbach, and Anna - d/o Bast Neb of Pfuhl (?).

+ Johannes(1), b. 7 Jan and bpt. Dom. 2. Epiph.: I733 - sp.: Johannes Zehrung of Marienberg, and Catharina - d/o Hans Henrich Schell of Ritzhausen.

Christianus, b. 8 April and bpt. 17 April 1735 - sp.: Christianus - s/o Christ Crumm of Pfuhl, and Catharina - w/o Jost Steupp of Bach.

General Notes: Source: The Palatine Families of New York, A Study of the German Immigrants Who Arrived in Colonial New York in 1710, by Henry Z. Jones, Jr., 1985. Page 719.

1) Johann Jost(2), bpt. 13 Oct 1689 - sp.: Joh. Jost Georg, and Anna Liess Petri - w/o the shepherd here (Breitscheid Chbk.). Johann Jost Petri made his initial appearance on the Hunter Rolls as #568 on 31 Dec 1710 with 2 pers. over 10 yrs. of age. Joh.

His will was dated 24 April 1759 and reproduced in the aforementioned Herkimer History on pp. 187 & 188. Johann Jost(2) md Cordelia Demuth (HJ).

Page 721. Another piece of genealogical cement leading the family of Johann Jost(2) Petri, the magistrate, back to Breitscheid is an item in Sower's Newspaper at Philadelphia, Pa. dated 1 April 1755 mentioning that one Anton Petri from Breitschit in Nassau Dillenburg had arrived in America last autumn and was seeking his Vetter (uncle or cousin) named Petri who had been in America 40 yrs. and was said to be a Justice in a region named zum Korb (N.Y.? - HJ). 32

252. John Kessler, son of Johannes Kessler and Unknown , was born on 5 Feb 1717.

General Notes: Source of marriage and children: Early Families of Herkimer County New York:

5104: John Kessler - probably the Johann born 5 Feb 1717 (son of immigrant John, as in Kochertal rec., bp sp., John Miller and Gert. Hetmann); possibly m1 by 1737 Margaret Folts (b 1721) daughter of Melchert Folts (check Bell family also for possible marriage of that Margaret Folts); m by 1757 Anna Maria ... (John and Maria sponsored Apr 1757 SAL bp of Maria Orlob). Probably the John Kessler jr on the 1753 Burnetsfield Church building subscriber's List (name alongside that of Jacob Folts) and the Johannis in Capt. Frank's 1767 German Flats militia, next to Jacob Kessler and John Eysaman. Probably the John Sr. on 1790 German Flats census (1-0-0). Notes of Mrs. Leonard Healton (33210 Baily Park Dr, Sun City, CA 92381) indicate that this John and Maria, rather than Jacob Joh. (of next generation, were the parents of Maria Elisabeth Kessler (b 14 May 1767, d Yates NY Dec 1813), wife of George Hausman.

This is also the source for his children and their spouses.

256. Thomas Osborn,11 son of Thomas Osborn and Mary Goatly , was born on 6 Nov 1622 in Ashford, Kent, England, 11 was christened on 24 Nov 1622 in Christ Church, Ashford, Kent, England, 11 died on 23 Sep 1713 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York 11 at age 90, and was buried in South End Cem, East Hampton, Suffolk, NY. 11 Ancestral File Number: 94K9-FS.

General Notes: According to East Hampton History, 1953, he served the town in various civil offices.

This text, p. 496 contains the following:

Children of Thomas Osborn 2 who are not usually given in genealogies may have been Jonathan and Bezaleel. Osborn Shaw thinks so. At any rate, there were Osborns here bearing those names at dates when they could have been sons of Thomas 2; although Judge Henry P. Hedges was inclined to think they were together with another Joseph, sons of a wealthy Boston merchant, William Osborn. William Osborn 1 was in Salem 1630, in Dorchester 1639, at Harvard College 1661; he had a son Recompence born in Dorchester 1644, at Braintree, Mass. had Hannah born Aug. 24, 1646, Bezaleel May 8, 1650, and in Boston had Joseph born April 6, 1652 and Jonathan born Nov. 16, 1656. He died 1662. His widow married John Mulford of East Hampton. (Widow Friedeswiede Osborn). Recompence 2 graduated from Harvard and later taught school in New Haven, then went to East Hampton and after 1665 disappears, probably died here; Jonathan went to Cape May, N.J. where he and his brother Joseph owned a house together in 1690. Joseph is probably the "Joseph Sr." who died in 1741 in East Hampton aged about 90.

As for Bezaleel, his "nuncupative" (oral) will recorded in the Suffolk County Clerk's office at Riverhead, L.I., gives these facts: His wife was Elizabeth Howell, sister of Arthur Howell of Southampton; he was brother of Joseph and Jonathan Osborn of East Hampton. He died at the home of his brother Joseph in East Hampton in 1686; the will mentions no children, although he may have had a daughter who married Ralph Dayton. East Hampton Town Records mention Bezaleel and his "share of whale," 1677. Brookhaven Town Records, under date Sept. 8, 1679, show that Bezaleel Osborn of East Hampton gives 50 acres of upland and 15 acres of meadow in Brookhaven to Ralph Dayton. The Daytons, Osborns, and Bakers all came from the same part of Kent. Tradition says that the grave of Bezaleel Osborn in South End Burying Ground, was marked by read cedar posts bearing the initials B.O. 11

Thomas married Elizabeth Rattray 11.,33

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Thomas Osborn was born in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York and died as an infant.

         ii.   Jonathan Osborn was born in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York.

        iii.   Bezaleel Osborn was born in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York.

Thomas next married Mary Bond in 1642 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York. Mary was born in 1642 in Lynn, Essex, Massachusetts and died in East Hampton, L.I., NY.

Children from this marriage were:

128       i.   Joseph Osborn (born about 1660 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York - died on 2 Oct 1743, buried in South End Burying Ground, East Hampton)

         ii.   Daniel Osborn was born in 1665 in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York 11 and died on 6 Jan 1713 11 at age 48.

        iii.   Abigail Osborn was born in 1671 in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York.


257. Mary Bond, daughter of Robert Bond and Hannah Ogden , was born in 1642 in Lynn, Essex, Massachusetts and died in East Hampton, L.I., NY. Ancestral File Number: JR2W-4Q.

Mary married Thomas Osborn 11 in 1642 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York. Thomas was born on 6 Nov 1622 in Ashford, Kent, England, 11 was christened on 24 Nov 1622 in Christ Church, Ashford, Kent, England, 11 died on 23 Sep 1713 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York 11 at age 90, and was buried in South End Cem, East Hampton, Suffolk, NY. 11

258. William Hedges .

General Notes: The Osborn genealogy clearly states that Josheph 3 married Mary, dau. of William and Hannah Stratton Hedges in 1704. However, the Hedges genealogy does not mention a William Hedges who would logically be the father of this Mary.

William married Hannah Stratton .11

The child from this marriage was:

129       i.   Mary Hedges (born about 1671 in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York - died on 2 Aug 1752 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York)


259. Hannah Stratton .11

General Notes: The Stratton genealogy contained in East Hampton History does no include a Hannah who could logically be the wife of William Hedges. John Stratton, baptized Aug. 14, 1621 in London, the third son of William and Elizabeth Stratton, married Sarah, whose surname is unknown, did have a daughter named Hannah who would be of the approximate generation. However, the genealogy indicates she married a Stephen Hedges before 1684. 11

Hannah married William Hedges .

260. Cornelius Conklin, son of Ananias Conklin and Mary Launder , was born in 1636 in Kings Swineford, Staffordshire, Nottingham, England, was christened about 1636 in Stpeters/Salemaf, Staffordshire, Nottingham, England, died on 21 Mar 1668 in Salem, Essex, MA at age 32, and was buried in Salem, Essex, MA. Ancestral File Number: 8VPR-X7.

Cornelius married Mary Aborn about 1669 in Salem, Essex, MA.

Cornelius next married Esther Hedges before 1690. Esther was born about 1669 of East Hampton, Prior Goni, NY.

Children from this marriage were:

130       i.   Cornelius Conklin (born in 1690 in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York - died in 1767 in East Hampton, Prior Goni, NY)

         ii.   William Conkling was born in 1695 in Salem, Essex, MA, was christened from 1695 to 1698 in Salem, Essex, MA, died in 1761 in East Hampton, Long Island, Suffolk, NY at age 66, and was buried in 1761 in East Hampton, Long Island, Suffolk, NY. Ancestral File Number: 1BBG-2VD.


261. Esther Hedges, daughter of Stephen Hedges and Hannah Stratton , was born about 1669 of East Hampton, Prior Goni, NY. Ancestral File Number: 1D6R-V90.

Esther married Cornelius Conklin before 1690. Cornelius was born in 1636 in Kings Swineford, Staffordshire, Nottingham, England, was christened about 1636 in Stpeters/Salemaf, Staffordshire, Nottingham, England, died on 21 Mar 1668 in Salem, Essex, MA at age 32, and was buried in Salem, Essex, MA.

262. John Mulford, son of John Mulford Judge and Unknown , was born in 1650 in East Hampton, , NY, was christened in 1650 in East Hampton, , NY, and died on 29 Aug 1734 at age 84. Ancestral File Number: 1618-GN6.

General Notes: The Mulford genealogy does have a John 2 (son of John 1) born 1650 and died 1734. His first wife died in 1705 and he married Martha, widow of Ananias Conkling Jr., in 1733. Only two children are listed for his first marriage - John 3 b. 1683 and Isaac 3 b. 1684. I am assuming Deborah was born about 1695 to this John Mulford.

John married.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   John Mulford was born in 1683 in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York.

         ii.   Isaac Mulford was born in 1684 in Probably E.H., Suffolk, New York.

131     iii.   Deborah Mulford (born in 1695 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York)

John married Martha Conkling .


264. John Hedges, son of Stephen Hedges and Hannah Stratton , was born in 1670 and died on 9 Jan 1737 at age 67.

John married Ruth Stratton .11 Ruth died on 22 Nov 1739 11 .

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Mary Hedges was christened on 17 Dec 1699 and died on 12 Aug 1712 at age 12.

         ii.   John Hedges was christened on 18 Jan 1702 and died on 12 Mar 1786 at age 84.

        vii.   Daniel Hedges was christened on 5 Oct 1712 and died on 11 Jun 1716 at age 3.

       viii.   Lemuel Hedges was christened on 29 Aug 1714.

         ix.   Ruth Hedges .


265. Ruth Stratton 11 died on 22 Nov 1739 11 .

General Notes: The East Hampton History shows several generations of the descendants of Richard Stratton and only two of John. The descendants of Richard do not include a Ruth Stratton. Since John Stratton had a daughter named Ruth, it would be more probably that this Ruth would be a descendant of John Stratton. 11

Ruth married John Hedges . John was born in 1670 and died on 9 Jan 1737 at age 67.

266. Timothy Mulford, son of Samuel Mulford Captain and Esther Conkling , was born in 1681 in <In Infancy> and died on 10 Dec 1741 at age 60. Ancestral File Number: 1618-H1F.

267. Sarah Dayton was born about 1685 in <In Infancy>. Ancestral File Number: 1618-H2M.

Sarah married Timothy Mulford . Timothy was born in 1681 in <In Infancy> and died on 10 Dec 1741 at age 60.

272. Benjamin Barton,27,28 son of Rufus Barton and Margrett Stafford , was born in 1645 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island and died in 1720 at age 75.

General Notes: Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island, page 251 contains significant information about Benjamin Barton and his next two generations of descendants.

The Haile, Hail, Hale Family, From Hale Genealogy in Re- W. J. Hale

Richard Haile, the ancestor of the Hall, Haile, Hale family of Swansea and Warren - as it is variously spelled by his descendants - first appears on Swansea records when he was admitted an inhabitant Nov. 14, 1677, and granted a ten acre lot north of ye old fence at Kickemuit; this would indicate that it lay between Market Street and the highway running along the west bank of the Kickemuit River between the bridges.

He had married probably at Rehoboth, Mary daughter of Richard & Elizabeth (Ingraham) Bullock, born 1652, Feb. 16, in Rehoboth. Their eldest son John was probably born there before they came to Swansea. In 1698 he was chosen fence viewer the only office he seems to have held.

General Notes: The Descendants of James Cole of Plymouth 1633, page 25-27 contains the following about Hugh Cole:

Hugh Cole, 2d son of James was born in London, England in 1627; he came with his father to Plymouth, Mass. in 1633, and was admitted as freeman of Plymouth in 1657. He first married Jan 8, 1654, Mary Foxwell, daughter of Richard and Ann (Shelly) Foxwell of Barnstable, Mass. She was born in Scituate, Aug. 17, 1635, and died in Swansea, Mass. (Richard Foxwell came from England with Governor Winthrop in 1631, and the same year removed to Scituate and was admitted as freeman. He removed to Barnstable and was a member of the Barnstable Militia in 1643.) He next married Jan. 1, 1689, Elizabeth, widow of Jacob Cook, former widow of William Shurtliffe, and daughter of Thomas and Ann Lettuce of Plymouth.
She died in Swansea, Mass., Oct. 31, 1693. He then married Jan. 30, 1694, Mary, widow of Deacon Ephrim Morton, former widow of William Harlow, and daughter of Robert and Judith Shelly, a cousin of his first wife.

The following appears upon the Plymouth records: "Apl. 8, 1634 It is agreed with James Cole that his son Hugh shall keep the Cowes from Apl. 15 to November, and shall have for his pay fifty bushels of corn. He shall bring them up every morning to be milked and then carry back to feed and bring them home at night."

He was made surveyor of highways at Barnstable, and granted 100 acres of land at Acushauett. In 1667 with others he purchased of King Phillip 500 acres of land on the west bank of what was named for him Coles River. He was a shipwright and civil engineer and many of the tracts of land of Swansea were surveyed by him. He was a selectman of Swansea for many years, and was representative and deputy of the general court in the years, 1773, '74, '75, '80, '83, '85, '86, and '89. He was for years the friend of King Phillip (the Indian chief). Having been requested by the Plymouth Colony Council to visit King Phillip and report the conditions made the following report:

"Swansea, Apl. 1, 1671. Most Honorable Sirs: -- Yours I received this day whereby I perceive you desire to know what posture the Indians are in. I do not find them to continue in a posture of war as they have been. I went to Mount Hope last second day on purpose to see their proceedings and was in many of their houses, but saw nothing as intending to War. But asking them of their reason of continuing together at Mt. Hope, they answered, it was to see Phillip's child buried, and I have seen some return, because the wind does not blow against them that they cannot go home with their canoes -- not else.
Rest assured I am yours to command what I am able. Hugh Cole, Oct. 27, 1669.

Hugh Cole was granted fifty acres of land lying between Manneonest Point and the Salt Marsh with all the appurtenances thereunto belonging, unto him and his heirs forever. (Page 149, vol 3. Plymouth Records.) He was granted by the court respecting his father's grand, he being an ancient freeman. Six score acres of land between the Mattapoiset River and the bounds of Asushassett.

In June, 1675, at the commencement of the war with King Phillip, two of Hugh's sons were made prisoners by the Indians and taken to Phillip at Mount Hope. Phillip ordered them see at liberty, because as he said, Hugh Cole had always been his friend. He sent word to Hugh that he could no longer restrain his warriors, and for him to take his family and immediately remove to Rhode Island. This he did, and one hour afterward his home was in flames. While he had been on such friendly terms with Phillip, his was the first house burned, and Gershom Cole was the first person killed. After leaving his home Hugh Cole located at Portsmouth, R. I. The town records of Portsmouth show that, Oct. 12. 1675, Hugh Cole was granted liberty to use some of the windfalls that are down to build a small frame, and to make wheels for the use of the townsmen for their money. Savage says: "Hugh was a sergeant in the war against King Phillip." After the war in his election as representative he is always spoken of as sergeant. After the close of the war, 1677, he returned to Swansea and built a house a few rods from where Miss Abby Cole now lives. The well walled by him on the bank of the Kickemuit River is still there.

This part of the land has descended by will, no deed having been made for it; it has never passed out of possession of the Cole family and is now owned by Miss Abby Cole. Part of the land owned by him in Swansea is now part of Warren, R. I.

He died in Swansea, Jan. 22, 1699, and was buried in the Southern extreme of Meadow Neck, now known as Howland Meadow in Barrington, in what is known as the Tyler Point Cemetery. He had ten children, the first seven were born in Plymouth, the other three in Swansea.

History of Swansea, page 154-155 contains the following:

Hugh Cole, son of James, born in 1627, probably in London, England, came to America with his parents in 1632, and with them probably went to Plymouth, of which he was made a freeman in 1657. He married (first) Jan. 8, 1654, Mary, born Aug. 17, 1635, in Scituate, daughter of Richard and Ann (Shelly) Foxwell, of Barnstable, Mass., her father having came from England with Governor Winthrop in 1631, and settled in Scituate. Mr. Cole married (second) Jan. 1, 1668, Elizabeth, widow of Jacob Cook, former widow of William Shurtliffe, and daughter of Thomas and Ann Lettuce of Plymouth. She died in Swansea, Mass., Oct. 3, 1693, and he married (third) Jan. 30, 1694, Mary, widow of Deacon Ephraim Morton, former widow of William Harlow, and daughter of Robert and Judith Shelly.

At the opening of King Philip's war in 1675, two sons of Mr. Cole were made prisoners by the Indians. Philip ordered them set a liberty, because their father had been his friend. He sent word to Hugh that for safety he should remove to Rhode Island, which he did. Perhaps in an hour after he left, his house was in flames. He lived for a time in Portsmouth, R. I. According to Savage, Mr. Cole was a sergeant in the war. He returned to Swansea in 1677, and built a house within a few rods of the home of the late Miss Abby Cole, in Warren, and this land on the Kickemuit River has never passed out of the possession of the Cole family, unless recently. Mr. Cole died in Swansea, Jan. 22, 1699. Of his ten children the first three were born in Plymouth, and the others in Swansea.

Hugh married Mary Foxwell on 8 Jan 1654 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts. Mary was born on 17 Aug 1635 in Barnstable, Plymouth, Massachusetts, was christened on 30 Aug 1636 in Barnstable, Plymouth, Massachusetts, died from 1678 to 1688 in Swansea, Bristol, Mass at age 43, and was buried in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts.

282. Samuel Luther,27 son of John Luther and Elizabeth , was born in 1636 in Taunton, Bristol, Massachusetts, died on 20 Dec 1716 in Swansea, , Massachusetts at age 80, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.

General Notes: The Luther Family in America goes on to describe Samuel Luther, the elder son of Captain John, was born according to an unvariable tradition at Yocumtown. No locality of this designation is known in Colonial history. The settlements were so few in 1636 and so well marked that this designation must be regarded as fictitious. However, one recent correspondent claims to have found evidence that this was one of the early Indian names of Taunton.

The text talks about his youthful voyage and capture by the Delaware Indians, of his subsequent ransom and return. (Unfortunately this part of the story was told in that part of the book I did not copy.) It continues saying we may believe that the qualities of initiative, endurance, and purpose which marked his later years may well have stood him in good stead in this tragic boyhood experience.

Elder Samuel's real career begins with the permission granted him by the Town of Rehoboth, "27th of ye 12 mo., 1661 (Feb. 27, 1662 new style) to be a sojourner to buy ore hire." Behind this grant lies a tale characteristic of the political temper of the Colony of Plymouth. The migrants had forsaken England for political, economic, and religious freedom, but they in turn quickly imposed fettering conditions on other would-be citizens. The situation is succinctly set forth in Weeden's Economics and Social History, viz: "The Bay expelled Roger Williams, the Hutchinsons, and others because they would not conform, and the spirit of this action manifested itself in many town. Lancaster in 1653 voted not to receive into the plantation "any excommunicant or notoriously erring agt the Doctrine & Discipline of chhs. of this commonwealth." This was the method adapted to New England circumstances and the political conditions of citizenship. The economic checks of the franchise were equally severe. They dreaded the approach of a stranger who could not be settled and taxed immediately. To prevent irresponsible persons from getting a foothold in the community, and a share in the common goods without giving an equivalent was the chief care of their lives. Statutes by the hundreds and penalties by the thousands might be cited to show this excessive municipal activity. The General Court in 1637 forbade the town allowing strangers to settle without the permission of the Council or of two magistrates."

It was a fundamental principle of English law that the inhabitants of a municipality were responsible for the and support of each other, "each for all and all for each." Whether they knew it, or not they were shaping their legislation upon Plato's Republic, he having ordained for that ideal society population, but should keep itself pure, and consist only of such as persevered in their own laws. Perhaps by the time Rehoboth granted this permission "to buy ore hire," something of the edge of the prohibition had worn off, for Samuel Luther at once takes his place as an active and prominent citizen of the town.

The migration to the "roomy place," (Rehoboth is Biblical for roominess), was probably coincident with another venture in life, his marriage to Mary Abel who had come to Rehoboth in 1645, two years earlier, founding the town. The marriages of both Samuel and Hezekiah occurred in the same year, 1662; Samuels in Rehoboth and Hezekiah's in Dorchester, he remained in Dorchester (Milton) where his sons John and Nathaniel were born, the one in 1663, the other in 1665.
Soon, however, he joins his older brother, probably after the death of his young wife Elizabeth, and for the remainder of their years the two brothers live and labor side by side, first in Rehoboth and after 1667 when the town was set off, in Swansea. There Elder Samuel sustained every office of honor and trust the town could bestow, as Mr. Tusten says in his memorial sermon of 1845.

We shall need to follow him step by step along this highway whereon we shall find the several stages definitely marked. It takes us through stormy scenes of religious controversy, through the tragic days of King Philip's War, the first stroke of which fell upon the very edifice in which he was worshiping, to his own participation in that sanguinary struggle, and on to peaceful and prosperous times in which many sons and daughters, physical and spiritual, rose up to call him blessed.

Facing as it did just across the river, Slate Rock, from which the Indians proclaimed their message of cheer to the outcasts of Massachusetts Bay, Roger Williams and his band of exiles, it was inevitable that some echoes of religious independence and freedom, set up in that plantation of Providence should be heard within the confines of Rehoboth, whose very name was an augury of hospitality. And so while Parson Newman was busy in his study in the preparation of that monumental three-volume work, "A Concordance of the Bible," the foxes were breaking down the fences in his ecclesiastical preserve.

Among the planters were Obadiah Homes, Edward Smith, Joseph Torrey, and others who back in Salem, had embraced the doctrine of Roger Williams and church under the very eaves of the church of the standing order (Congregational). Mr. Newman pronounced sentences of authority, the Baptist schism was for the time suppressed. The story in its entirety is much longer than this, and includes persecutions, whippings, and banishment. But the seed thus sown to the dividing of the town and the setting off of Swansea, and to a pastorate in the church thus formed more than three decades by Elder Samuel Luther, a trusted and successful leader.

Savage said SAMUEL, Rehoboth 1662, was sec. Baptist minister at Swansey, ordained 22 July 1685, died 1717. He had Experience, born 3 Mar. 1675. That town of Rehoboth sent many in the mad expedition of Phips against Quebec, 1690, of which one was SAMUEL, perhaps son of the preacher Progeny in that quarter is very much diffused. Benedict, Hist. I. 426.

History of Swansea, page 173 continues with:

Through Samuel and Hezekiah Luther, sons of Capt. John, have descended the Luthers of the territory to which we have alluded. Of these Samuel was born in 1638, probably in Boston or vicinity. He is referred to as of Rehoboth, Feb. 27, 1661. On Oct. 19, 1672, he made a claim or demand for his father's purchase in Taunton. In the year 1685 Samuel Luther succeeded Rev. John Miles as Elder of the Baptist Church in Swansea, Mr. Miles having died in 1683. Mr. Luther is referred to as Rev. Capt. Samuel Luther. He continued in charge of the Swansea Church for thirty-two years. He died Dec. 20, 1716, and was buried in the Kickemuit Cemetery, in what is now Warren, R. I., where also rests the remains of his brother Hezekiah, who died July 28, 1723, aged eighty-three years. The children of Elder Samuel Luther, according to Rehoboth town records, were: Samuel, Theophilus, and Mary; and in the father's will are mentioned also; Joshua, Ebenezer, Susannah, Mehitabel, and Martha.

Death date listed in "Vital Records of Swansea, Massachusetts to 1850" page 226 as "Elder Samuel Luther Departed This Life December the 20:1716 being about 80 years of age".

(Remember that Warren was formed from Swansea when the area was transferred from MA to RI in 1746.)

General Notes: The Millards of Rehoboth, Massachusetts contains the following:

Robert Millard Jr. lived on Rocky River in the southeast section of Rehoboth; he was a tanner and also part owner of a sawmill. On 11 July 1702, Robert Millard of Rehoboth sold to Thomas Bown of Swansea nine acres "given me by my honored father Robert Millard, deceased", bounded by lands left to Nathaniel Millard by our honored father.

The will of Robert Millard of Rehoboth, Tanner, dated 4 May 1709, proved 11 Sept. 1709, bequeathed to wife Charity, the west end of the dwelling house and one-half the land lying on the west side of Rocky River in Rehoboth, also one-half the salt marsh in Swansea during her widowhood, all moveable estate within doors and without and "my part of a sawmill in Swansea for bringing up my children"; to son John the other half of the land on the west side of Rocky River and the east end of the dwelling house, "also the other part of the house and land after my wife's decease or marriage", one fourth of the salt marsh in Swansea and of the land at Manwhaque (in southeast Rehoboth); to son Samuel "when he comes of age" all the other part of my homestead lying on the east side of Rocky River, together with one-fourth of the salt meadow and of the land at Manwhaque; to two sons Robert and Benjamin "when they come of age" all the rest of my lands and meadow dividends and individed lying in Rehoboth and Attleboro; to four daughters, Charity, Rachel, Patience and Mary, ten pounds each at eighteen years or marriage. The wife Charity was appointed executrix. Inventory taken 22 Aug 1709, filed by the executrix 7 Sept. 1709, totaled £573.16.09.

Even though the children were quite small when Robert died, there are no guardianships on file in Bristol County in connection with this estate; consequently it has been impossible to discover what actually happened to daughter Mary.

The tombstone inscription at Kickemuit Cemetery at Warren is: Here lyeth ye Body of Robert Millerd Aged 43 years & dyed August ye 17th 1710. This difference in time is acknowledged by McTeer and Warner.

496. Christgen Schell, son of Christ Schell and Elsa , was born about 1662.

General Notes: Source: More Palatine Families, Henry Z. Jones, Jr., 1991. p230

The N.Y. family was carried on by Christ Schell, the boy listed as 3 yrs. old on the 1665 list. Christgen, s/o Christ Schell of Hoff, md. 23 p. Trin.: 1686 Gertraut, d/o Christ Mann from Bach. The 1711 Beilstein Lists show him at Pfuhl and record the family as "Christ Schell, aged 51, and son Johann Christ, aged 1 yrs.": The actual bpt. of this child is difficult to determine, as Christ Schell and Anna Gertraut had "A Son" bpt. Dom 6 p. Trin.: 1703 (?), and "A Son" bpt. on Dom. Oculi: 1697 - both of whom had male sp. named "Christ"; thus either of these two bpts. might be the correct one for the boy aged 11 on the 1711 Beilstein List (which is sometimes "off" as to exact ages when compared to an actual bpt. record).

Christgen married Anna Gertraut Mann in 1686.

The child from this marriage was:

248       i.   Johann Christ Schell (born in 1697-1703 of Pfuhl, , Germany)

GERTRUDE PETRI 1TH (Hunter Lists #567)

JOHANN JOST PETRI (Hunter Lists #568)

The ancestral roots of this Mohawk Valley family were at 6349 Breitscheid (8 km w. of Herborn; Chbks. begin 1636, but gaps). The father-in-law of #567 Gertrud Petri was Johann Jost Petri. Johann Jost Petri and his wife Catharina had a so Johannes, bpt. 28 Feb 1664 - sp.: Joes Kappenstein. Although the marriage registers for Breitscheid are missing 1661 - 1692, the bpt. registers firmly show that Johannes Petri md. Anna Gertraud (--) and had issue bpt. at Breitscheid (HJ). Johannes Petri, called the elder, was bur. 24 June 1700. Johannes Petri's Widow of Breitscheid petitioned to leave Germany in 1709 (Nassau-Dillenburg Petitions). 32

Johannes married Anna Gertraud .32 Anna was born about 1666 of Breitscheid, , Germany 32 and died after 1710 32 .

Children from this marriage were:

250       i.   Johan Jost Petri (born in 1686 - died in 1770)

         ii.   Anna Elisabetha Petri was christened in 1691 in Breitscheid, , Germany. 32

        iii.   Jost Henrich Petri was christened in 1693 in Breitscheid, , Germany. 32

         iv.   A Son Petri was christened on 6 Jan 1695 in Breitscheid, , Germany. 32

         vi.   Anna Catharina Petri was christened on 5 May 1700 in Breitscheid, , Germany. 32


501. Anna Gertraud 32 was born about 1666 of Breitscheid, , Germany 32 and died after 1710 32 .

General Notes: Source: The Palatine Families of New York, A Study of the German Immigrants Wh Arrived in Colonial New York in 1710, by Henry Z. Jones, Jr., 1985. Page 719.

Anna Gertrude Petri made her initial appearance on the Hunter Lists 1 July 1710 with 2 pers. over 10 yrs. of age and 1 pers. under 10 yrs.; her last entry was aug 1710 with the same numbers. She was probably the Anna Gurtruydt, w/o Johan Joost Petri (this name in error - HJ), who had land at Burnetsfield (Burnetsfield Patent). 32

Anna married Johannes Jost Petri The Elder .32 Johannes was christened on 28 Feb 1664 in Breitscheid, , Germany, 32 died in 1700 32 at age 36, and was buried on 24 Jun 1700. 32

502. Jacob Demuth was born from about 1650 to 1665 in Probably, , Germany and died before 1723 in Probably, , New York.

General Notes: Source: Early Families of Herkimer County New York, Descendants of the Burnetsfield Palatines, William V. H. Barker, 1986.

2001: Jacob DeMuth - probably born ca 1650 to 1665; possibly m1 ... ; probably m2 in NY Maria Thonius (Maria "Deunes" widow of Jacob DeMot m2 at Kinston NY 1723 Peek DeWit). Was on the NY Palatine subs. list in 1710 (4A,2Y) and in 1712 (5A,0Y) and was probably the Jacob Dimouth in the 1710 West Camp list with one boy (age 9-15) and two girls (age 9-15). The counts for adults and dependents don't seem to quite square with the kids below, even with Cordelia off in the Petrie household. A guess that this Jacob was the one at Beckmansland on the 1717 Simmendinger census, with a wife and three children. Also seen on NY Palatine subs. list were Anna Maria Demuth (single adult in 1710) and Agnes Demuth (two adults in 1710, one was possibly the Peter Demott age 13 in 1711, who was bound out to Cornelis Wychoff of the Flatlands in Apr 1711 <and the Peter DeMuth at Hackinsack on the 1717 Simmendinger census>).

Jacob married.

Children from this marriage were:

251       i.   Cordelia Demuth

         ii.   Dietrich Demuth was born about 1696 and died after 1712.

        iii.   Dorothea Demuth was born about 1698.

         iv.   Jost Demuth was born about 1700 and died after 1723.

          v.   Anna Demuth was born about 1702 and died after 1715.


504. Johannes Kessler,32 son of Hans Jacob Kessler and Unknown , was born in 1686 in Ebersbach, , Germany 32 and died after 1760 32 .

General Notes: Source: Early Families of Herkimer County New York:

5101: Johannes Kessler - Presumably the john bp in 1686 at Ebersbach, Germany, son of a Hans Jacob and Magdalene (see Hank Jones' "The Palatine Families of New York"; probably living after 1760 (grandson Dietrich said to have remembered him); m probably in 1710 Maria Margaret or Anna Margaret ... (a guess that she was possibly a dau of George Laux and Eva Zout to explain Kessler selection as sponsors of later era Laux baptisms. Casler tradition in America say that he immigrated, along with Nicholas Kessler, from the Alsace area in Germany (Petrie book, page 7). John was on the NY Palatine subsistence list in 1710 (2A,0Y) and 1712 (2A,0Y) and by Hank Jones' findings seems to have been a brother of the Anna Maria Kessler whose name appears on the NY Palatine subsistence list in 1710 (1A,0Y) and in 1712 (1A,0Y). This same John Kessler was a resident of the Queensburry camp when he volunteered for the Canadian Expedition in 1711 and was naturalized at Albany NY 3 Jan 1716 (where his name appears in the list alongside that of John Miller). He was listed on the 1717 Simmendinger census at Queensberg (in Schoharie NY) with wife Maria Margaret and three children and in 1723 he received Burnetsfield Patent lot #45, next to that of Nicholas Kessler.

Two of Johannes' children, Catherine and John jr., have their baptisms in the early church records of Rev. Kocherthal and another child, Eva, is established as the wife of Marcus Petrie (Petrie book). Family traditions say that a John Jacob born in the early 1720s was a son of Johannes, so we have at least four children without the "probable" qualifier. Assuming the Burnetsfield Patentee Nicholas was a minor in 1723, we thus place the remaining second generation Kesslers under Johannes (this seems the better guess, although one or more may belong to the earlier immigrant Nicholas). We are merely guessing in placing below a daughter Magdalene (on the basis that she was named for the parental grandmother.)

This is also the source of his 7 children and their spouses. 32

Johannes married.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Nicholas Kessler was born about 1713 and died after 1723.

         ii.   George Kessler was born about 1714 and died after 1765.

        iii.   Anna Catherine Kessler was born on 21 Nov 1715.

252      iv.   John Kessler (born on 5 Feb 1717)

          v.   Anna Eva Kessler was born about 1719.

         vi.   Henrich Kessler was born about 1721.

        vii.   John Jacob Kessler was born about 1723 and died in 1811 about age 88.

       viii.   Magdalena Kessler was born about 1725.

         ix.   Margaret Kessler was born about 1727.

          x.   Peter Kessler was born about 1729.


506. Melchert Folts was born in 1676 in Probably, , Germany and died in 1757 at age 81.

General Notes: Source: Early Families of Herkimer County New York:

2801: Melchert Folts - probably born in Germany 1676; died 1759; m1 by 1711 Anna Eva ... ; m2 by 1717 Margaretha ...; and m3 by 1725 Anna Catherine ... (named in his will). Melchert appears on the NY Palatine subsistence list in 1710 (2A,0Y) and 1712 (2A,1Y). Melchior Voltz and wife Anna Eva sponsored Nov 1711 bp of Anna Eva, dau of Michael Freymeyer and Elisabeth. Probably arrived directly at New York in 1710, rather than via Philadelphia (as in 1974 ms. "The Descendaents of Peter Folts" by Charles P. Brown, Box 416, R.D. 2, Altamont, NY). Listed at Livingston Manor, NY 1710-11 by Rupp (Book of Early Germans) and at Haysbury Camp in 1711 when enlisting for Canada expedition (Book of Names, page 125). Melchert was naturalized at Albany 3 Jan 1716, on the 1717 Simmendiger census with wife Margaret and 3 children, and ca 1723 drew Burnetsfield lot #2. His will prepared Jan 1725 (Beers "History of Herkimer Co., New York", pages 247-8) mentions wife Anna Catrina, sons Jacob, Peter, Conrad, and daughters Anna Margaret and Elizabeth Catrina; executors were Fred. Bell, George Kast, and Lawrence Harter (will wit. by George S. Smidt, John Williams, and Anna Bell).

This is also the source of his 7 children and their spouses.

512. Thomas Osborn,11,27 son of Jeremy (Hieremy) Osborn and Joan Wyborne , was born from about 1594 to 1595 in Ashford, Kent, England, 11 was christened from 4 Apr 1594 to 1595 in Ashford, Kent, England, Great Britain, 11 died from 1677 to 1686 in Easthampton, Long Island, New York 11 about age 83, and was buried in 1688 in New Haven, New Haven, Connecticut. 11 Ancestral File Number: FZXG-MJ.

General Notes: The Thomas Osborne text indicates that another Thomas Osborn, the sone of John and Thomasin Osborne, was born at Ashford in 1595, and it is possible, but unlikely, that he, and not the son of Jeremy, was the American settler. But, as David Lines Jacobus has pointed out, circumstanial evidence favors Jeremy's son. For instance, he was known from Jeremy's to have been a tanner, and his second son was named Jeremiah, after his father. John's son named his fourth son Jeremiah.

After 1636 the family disappears from the Ashford records. Richard Osborne in his 1646 will names his own children and those of his brother Joseph but makes no mention of Thomas or his children, probably because they had removed to America.

Thomas and Richard Osborn arrived in Boston on June 26, 1637. They and the entire New Haven Colony stayed in Boston until the spring of 1638 when they continued on to the area where they Founded the town of New Haven, Connecticut. The entire trip is described in the book "The Colony of New Haven*" by Edward E. Atwater. The book describes life in England at the time, why they wanted to come to America, the trip aboard ship, and the way the land in New Haven was divided up.

(* The text was digitized in 2001 and is now viewable at the following URL: http://invictus.quinnipiac.edu/colony.html - Page 136-7 says: According to the schedule of 1641, the proprietors of the south-west square were, at that time, William Fowler, Peter Prudden, James Prudden, Edmond Tapp, Widow Baldwin, An Elder, Richard Platt, Zachariah Whitman, and Thomas Osborne. The town records show that the lot reserved for an elder had been originally assigned to Timothy Baldwin, who, removing to Milford, sold his allotment to the town. As no land within this square has been traced to Thomas Osborne, it may be inferred that he sold to Mr. Fowler at an early date, and before a record of alienation was required. Mr. Osborne owned and occupied a house and tanyard on the south side of George Street, between Broad and Factory Streets, doubtless preferring this location to his original allotment because of the facilities it afforded for his vocation as a tanner. He afterward became one of the first planters of Easthampton on Long Island; but this property, being given to one of his sons, remained in the name of Osborne far into the nineteenth century. With the exception of Osborne, the original grantees of this square removed to Milford. As they had all emigrated from Herefordshire, or its vicinity, the square was for some years designated as the Herefordshire quarter.)

History of New Haven County edited by J. L. Rockey, 1892, page 7-9 tells that the party of fifty men and another 200 women and children were part of the company of the Reverend John Davenport arriving on the Hector and her consort. The company was composed of men of wealth, education and influence. Almost immediately upon arrival there was civil and religious conflict with the current residents of Massachusetts. In the spring of 1638 the company moved on to settle the Colony of New Haven.

History of New Haven Colony, Edward R. Lambert, 1838, page 54 indicates that Planter Thomas Osborne was responsible for six persons and had an estate valued at 300 pounds. Richard Osborne was responsible for three persons and had an estate valued at 10 pounds.

East Hampton History Including Genealogies of Early Families, by Jeannette Edwards Rattray, 1953, contains detailed genealogies of our Osborn family and many of the collateral lines. However, before I cover the genealogies, there is a section in the book entitled, Where They Came From, and Why. Here are some excerpts from that section:

Most of East Hampton's first settlers had been in America for ten, fifteen, or even twenty years before coming here. None, as far as we know, had been passengers of the Mayflower although some married into Mayflower families. They crossed the Atlantic, most of them , in the great Puritan migration from England that followed the granting of a charter to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1629.

Some of our 17th century forefathers were born into the gentry, some were ministers or merchants, others tenant-farmers or servants. But most were sturdy yeomen who came from the rich agriculture district in and around Maidstone in Kent and so, in the early years, they called the new settlement "Maidstone."

It was said that serfdom was almost unknown in Kent; that to say your father was born in Kent meant that you were free-born. A Man of Kent was an honorable appellation.

In the very early 17th century, King James began to exert the theory of Devine Right of Kings which became increasingly hard to swallow. Then the Thirty Years' War in Germany created a slump in English trade, there was a depression which made the prospect of new lands still more attractive. The depression lasted through King James' death in 1625, into the reign of Charles I and into the civil war of 1641. When King Charles surrendered to the Puritans in 1646 the Devine Right of Kings idea exploded. King Charles lost his head in 1649, just as East Hampton pioneers were drawing lots for Main Street homesteads.

Thomas Osborne and his son Thomas were not among the original nine settlers of East Hampton but became their very early associates, possibly still in 1649. The old Osborn family is listed as an early builder of a house on Main Street in 1680.

The introduction of the Osborn genealogy is now quoted:

OSBORN OR OSBORNE

THIS NAME, variously spelled, has existed more than a thousand years. In ancient Saxon England it was sometimes spelled Osbjorn; the wife of King Egbert was an Osborne. Egbert of the house of Cedric, King of Wessex, united the seven Saxon kingdoms of Britain into one kingdom under the name of England in 827, A.D. Earliest record of the Osborn family appears in the will of Harjanna and Julian Osborn of Kent, bearing date of 1404. The family lived in and around Maidstone then, and is still represented there. The first Osborn in East Hampton was Thomas of Ashford in Kent who owned land in Hingham, Mass. before 1635, moved to Windsor, Conn. by 1637, and was one of the early settlers of New Haven, Conn. in 1639. Thomas came to East Hampton in 1650 to 1651. His son John 2 was one of the first settlers of Wainscott, five miles west of East Hampton village, and in the township. East Hampton was first named Maidstone because so many of its first settlers had come from that vicinity; and Wainscott was doubtless named after a hamlet named Wainscot in England, near Rochester, and not very far from Maidstone. Mrs. George Odell (born Mary Osborn of Wainscott) visited the English Wainscot looking up her ancestors; and Ernest Clowes of Bridgehampton has located church records in that parish which give marriage of early 18th century Osbornes.

Preparation of the following genealogy (which does not attempt to carry the family far out of East Hampton Township) would have been impossible without data furnished by Osborn Shaw of Bellport, L.I., Brookhaven Town Historian and himself a descendant of East Hampton Osbornes; by William E. Osborn of Mt. Vernon, N.Y.; by Raymond H. Osborn, Mrs. Ralph Frazee, Mrs. Amy Osborn Bassford, Nelson C. Osborne, Mrs. Alice Dayton LaPointe, also Dr. Frederick A. Finch's notes and Judge Hedges' genealogies have given some basic information. Miss Minnie L. Hunting, who with her brother Daniel Osborn Huntting occupies one of the few East Hampton homesteads which have never passed out of the family, has prepared the whole of one section: "Descendants of Daniel Osborn 3."

Early American Osborns were tanners; Thomas 1, trained in that trade by his father in England, was given liberty to cut trees on the common in New Haven for his tanning. In 1660 Thomas 1 deeded to his son Jeremiah his house and tanyard in New Haven. Deacon Abraham Osborn 6 (1776 - 1855) grandfather of the late Burnett Mulford Osborne who lived on the property now that of Maidstone Arms, said that Thomas 1 and 2, Joseph 3 and his three sons Joseph 4, Jeremiah 4, and Thomas 4, Lewis 5 and Abraham 6, all tanners, worked for six generations at that trade on the hill where he resided; also for generations the family and descendants of Daniel 3 and his son Deacon Daniel 4 so wrought.

A beautifully carved chest, said to have been brought from England by the first Thomas Osborne, was given to the John Howard Payne memorial house "Home, Sweet Home," by the late B. M. Osborne.

It is interesting to note that Thomas and John Osborn were promoters for East Hampton of an agreement between the offshore whaling companies of East Hampton and Southampton, in January 1667. Descendants of John 2, John M. and Oliver S. Osborn of Wainscott, were among the last of the offshore whalemen here - Oliver S. Osborn headed the crew that captured the last right whale off Wainscott in 1907.

According to East Hampton History, 1953, page 490, Thomas 1 was baptized April 4, 1594/5 in Ashford, County Kent, England and died in either East Hampton or New Haven between 1677, when he made his will, and 1686, when his son Thomas is called Senior. He is thought to be the son of Jeremy and Joan Wybourne Osborne (due to cousins being named Thomas, there is some doubt) and is known to be the grandson of Thomas and Wilmeth Osborne.

In 1897, Judge Henry P. Hedges wrote an earlier East Hampton History from which Ms. Rattray quotes frequently. Rather than copying the complete Osborn section, I will only include parts that are not in the 1953 version.

THE OSBORN FAMILY

Thomas Osborn, Sr., was father of Thomas, Jr. 2, John 2 and Benjamin 2, and conveyed to the latter in 1687 all his lands in East Hampton, see T. R. Vol. I, pp. 84, 300, 406. From Savage's Gen. Dictionary and otherwise we know that this Thomas 1 had in New Haven a son Jeremiah and other children, and a brother Richard, the tanner there. The tradition that he returned to New Haven and died there is consistent with the deed and all the known facts. The Thomas 2 dying in 1712 at age 90, was son of Thomas 1. The Joseph, Jr. 3 was son of Thomas 2 dying in 1743 at age 83, and by will proved Sept. 9, 1746, devised to his son Joseph 4 the old Deacon Osborn homestead, to his son Jeremiah 4 the house on the corner bought of Capt. Thos. Wheeler, and to his son Thomas 4, the Pudding Hill lot. Four generations of the family are traced and located on three homesteads, at so late a date and so clearly as to leave little if doubt so far. The same will names his brother Daniel 3.
....
In Munsell's History of Suffolk County, the Osborn genealogy is erroneously traced from Robert and Elizabeth of Maidstone, Kent, Eng., to Thomas 2 who died at age 90 in 1712, to Daniel 3 d. Jan. 6, 1713 at age 48 yrs., Daniel 4 d. May 18, 1757, Jonathan 5 d. Nov. 1, 1781, Joseph 6 b. 1754, d. 1844, Joseph 7 b. 1789, d. 1872, Sylvanus M. 8. The partial genealogy of this family by Judge Thomas A. Osborn, late of Maybille, Chautauqua Co., N.Y., County Judge in 1843, Member of Assembly in 1868, contains the same mistake. Thomas 1 Sen. father of Thomas 2 Jr. who died in 1712 may have been son of that Robert and Elizabeth, but not of Thomas 2. The Town Record proves Thomas 2 son of Thomas 1.

Deacon Abraham Osborn 6, son of Lewis 5, son of Joseph 4, son of Joseph 3, son of Thomas 2, son of Thomas 1 was a man of devout soul, good memory and good sense, versed in treasured traditionary lore.

"And many names he would repeat,
Whose pulses long have ceased to beat."

He said that Thomas 1, Thomas 2, Joseph 3 and his three sons Joseph 4, Jeremiah 4, and Thomas 4, Lewis 5 and Abraham 6, all tanners, worked for six generations at that trade on the hill where he resided, now the residence of his grandsons William A. and Burnet M. Osborn. For generations the family and descendants of Daniel 3 and his son Deacon Daniel 4 so wrought. Judge Thomas A. relates that the family have tradition that they are of Norman origin, and came with William the Conqueror. He had an account of the family Coat of Arms which writing from memory, is not given. Believing that what we do and not what our ancestors have done will be our true measure I have made no inquiry in that direction. Dea. Joseph 4, grandfather of Dea. Abraham 6 was a man of strong convictions and in the Revolution a resolute patriot. During the Revolutionary war, on his way to church, he was ordered by a British officer to appear forthwith with his team and cart, at an appointed place to do service for the British army. The Deacon inquired by what authority the officer commanded him and was answered "by the authority of the King." "What King do you serve?" asked the Deacon. The answer was "King George the Third." The Deacon replied "My King is greater than your King. I serve King Jesus. He commands me to go to meeting and I shall go." With this the old hero marched on to the church. To such a man titles and coats of arms are baubles. Having known the strong personality and power of Dea. Abraham, his grandson, I can better conceive the master manner of his grandsire.

The source for all of Thomas's children is the LDS Ancestral File with corrections and additions made from East Hampton History, 1953.

In preparing this compilation of descendants of Thomas Osborn, the immigrant, I have mostly limited the content to the direct ancestors of our Cornelius Osborn (1814 -1879). Exceptions to this are other descendants who settled in Rensselaer and Monroe Counties, New York where our Cornelius's immediate ancestors resided.

For the interest of other researchers, I have photocopies of most of the Osborn sections of the East Hampton History, both the 1898 and 1953 versions.

Here is a message I received after publishing the Osborn text:
Thomas Osborn and his brother Richard [b. 1598] came to America in 1637 aboard the ship "Hector" which was commissioned by the New Haven Colony by a Mr. John Davenport and Mr. Theophilus Eaton. You will find Richard's name on the Passenger List on the Olive Tree Website (http://www.rootsweb.com/~ote/neship.htm#hector ) Thomas and Richard arrived in Boston on June 26, 1637. They and the entire New Haven Colony stayed in Boston until the spring of 1638 when they continued on to the area where they Founded the town of New Haven, Connecticut. The entire trip is described in the book "The Colony of New Haven" by Edward E. Atwater. The book describes life in England at the time, why they wanted to come to America, the trip aboard ship, and the way the land in New Haven was divided up.

Thomas was still fathering children in Ashford, Kent, England in 1636, so he COULD NOT have been in "New England" in 1635 ! (Joseph Osborn [b. Dec. 4, 1636, Ashford, England] [d. 1732-1733 in Newark, Essex, New Jersey]).

I am a descendent of Thomas Osborn(1), Benjamin(2), Benjamin(3), Samuel(4), etc.

514. Robert Bond was born in 1599 in , , Kent, England and died in 1677 in East Hampton, L.I., NY at age 78. Ancestral File Number: 1R9M-5S0.

General Notes: Lineal Ancestors of Susan (Mulford) Cory, wife of Captain James Corey, Volume III, Part II, compiled by C. H. Corey in 1937, contains a rather extensive genealogy section on pages 240 - 269 starting with Robert Bond. (RCL note: I will include only excerpts from that section.)

The Bond Lineage

Robert Bond was one of the Puritans who came to America from the county of Kent, England in 1639. He was an educated man despite the fact that he gave his occupation as a blacksmith. His wife's Christian name was Jane, as found in Dr. John winthrop's medical journal, recording the treatment of their sixteen-year old daughter Mary, when he stopped in East Hampton, L. I., in 1658. This Mary was twenty-four years old, then the wife of Thomas Osborn, when she was taken ill again in 1666, and the doctor happened to be making the rounds of his itinerary when he stopped in East Hampton and was called for. Apparently at this time he also treated Bond's seventeen-year old daughter Rebecca. Robert may have married as early as 1640.

Rev. Edwin F. Hatfield, in his "History of Elizabeth, N. J.," says Robert's wife was Hannah, who was then sister of John Ogden. (RCL note: I have Hannah Ogden listed as Robert's wife in the database.)

In any case, it is thought that he and his wife lived first in Lynn, Mass., for a few years and then about 1643, moved to Southampton, L. I., to join Rev. Abraham Pierson and his party who went there first in 1640. He was one of the five newcomers who, by the town order of May 29, 1643 were given land.

Being a "smithy" by trade Robert may have made harpoons on an occasion for the Indians to use, with which the town was not pleased. On June 9, 1643, he was warned by the general assembly that he should "not make for any India, or Indians, any harping Irons, or fishing Irons, which are knowne to be dangerous weapons to offende the English." But this planked injunction was removed in January of 1650 after Robert had moved to the new settlement of East Hampton for his future home.

Apparently by a split on church matter, Robert was made one of the nine men who began the new settlement of East Hampton, east of Southampton, in 1649. He had a principal part in securing an extensive track of land. It contained thirty-one thousand acres from the Indian chieftains by purchase on April 29, 1648, through the good offices of Governor Theophilus Eaton of the colony of New Haven and of Governer Edward Hopkins of the colony of Connecticut for certain articles at the value of 30 pounds, 4 shillings and 8 pence.

The land was divided among those original settlers inproportion as each had advanced the purchase money. They were the :proprietors" of the town and, as in New England, were a distinct body from the rest of the inhabitants. There homes lots were in the southern part of the main street and on each side of what is now called "Town Pond."

The first election appears in the record of October of 1650. Robert was among the four men elected, with the Constable, "for ye ordering of ye affaires of ye Town."

Robert was made one of the three magistrates or townsment of East Hampton in 1560, 1651, 1652, 1654, 1656, 1660, 1661, and 1662 by town elections, and he represented the town in the general assembly of the colony at Hartford in 1660 and 1661.

Robert was among three men whose names were sugggested by the general assembly at Hartford, Conn., on March 11, 1663, "to be put in nomination at ye next Court of Ellections in May, 1663. On the fourteenth of that month the assembly met and Robert Bond was chosen Commissioner by this Court and hereby inuested with magistricall power on the Island. The following year, May 12, 1664, Robert Bond and John Mulford, our ancestor, were appointed by the assembly "Magistrates for East Hampton.

News was bruited in the town as early as 1665 of the founding of a new settlement on the Jersey coast to b known as Elizabethtown. Some of Robert's neighbors who were about to move there led Robert to cast his lot with them.

On leaving East Hampton for his future home on the Jersey shore, Robert may have made arrangements with his son-in-law, Thomas Osborn, junior, for the care of his homestead and land possessions. Thomas Osborn apparently purchased these properties from Robert Bond on September 7, 1668.

"On the high recommendation of the Connecticut govenor, Robert was appointed on January 2, 1668, by Gov. Philip Cateret a member of his council and an assistant to the justice.

Robert was a member of the first general assembly of New Jersey, May 26, 1668, and served in that capacity for several terms subsequently.

Robert married for the second time in Newark in 1672, Mary, who was the widow of Hugh Roberts, and the daughter of Hugh Calkins, an emigrant from Wales in 1640, who was first a resident of Gloucester, Mass., and later of New London, Conn., and then of Norwich, Conn. Robert made his home in Newark, as it was first mentioned in the Newark Town Records of January 1, 1673 of his election as one of the two "Assistants" in the office of Magistrate Jasper Crane and one of two deputies to the "General Assembly."

The text goes on for many pages about Robert's involvement in New Jersy government.

Robert kept up his interest in the welfare of the Newark colony until he was taken by death, in April of 1677, at the age of eighty-one years, leaving behind his wife, who survived him by twenty four years, dying in 1700.

Robert married Hannah Ogden about 1630 in , , Kent, England. Hannah was born about 1607 in , , Kent, England and died in East Hampton, L.I., NY.

Children from this marriage were:

257       i.   Mary Bond (born in 1642 in Lynn, Essex, Massachusetts - died in East Hampton, L.I., NY)

         ii.   Stephen Bond was born in 1645 and died on 9 Nov 1694 in Newark, New Jersey at age 49.

        iii.   Joseph Bond was born about 1648 and died in 1709 in Elizabeth, Essex, New Jersey about age 61.

         iv.   Rebecca Bond was born in 1649.

General Notes: According to the Conklin genealogy in East Hampton History, the first Conklin or Conkling (the name is spelled both ways) to settle in East Hampton was Ananias, born in Nottinghamshire, England about 1600. He came to Salem, Mass. in the 1630's with his brother John, perhaps there were other brothers, but certainly John was there. Ananias Conkling is recorded as a member of the First Church in Salem in 1639. The brothers were glass-makers by trade. They were first to manufacture window glass and bottles in New England. They were granted house lots in Salem. Ananias was granted, 1638, a ten-acre plot for a glass factory; this was still known, long afterward, as "Glass House Field." Ananias was made a freeman of Salem on May 18, 1642.

They left New England for Long Island probably late in 1649, John founding a family in Southold, later moving to Huntington about 1660. Ananias obtained an allotment of land in East Hampton, settling here about 1650. Jeremiah, oldest son of Ananias, was one of the first four settlers of Amagansett shortly after 1690. The house he built there is still standing, and was sold 1950 to Mrs. Donald Lamb. Amagansett has been called, facetiously, "Conklinville."

Historians will differ on some points, after 300 years. Chauncey L. Ditmars, Babylon Town Historian, wrote in 1936 about Huntington Conklins, calling the first settler of that name there "Robert." Frank J. Conkling, writing in 1894, called the first Conklin in Huntington "John." Still another genealogist, Joseph I. Conklin, Jr. stated that there was a third brother named Cornelius who remained in Salem, died there in 1667 leaving a widow who later married Robert Starr.

Descendants and Ancesters of William Concklyne/Conklin

The first Conklin or Conkling (the name is spelled both ways) to settle in East Hampton was Ananias, born in Norringhamshire, Eng about 1600. He came to Salem, Ma in the 1630's with his brother John, perhaps there were other brothers, but certainly John was there. Ananias Conkling is recorded as a member of the First Church in Salem in 1639. The brothers were glass-makers by trade. They were first to manufacture window glass and bottles in New England. They were granted house lots in Salem. Ananias was granted, 1638, a ten-acre plot for a glass factory; they were still know, long afterward, as "Glass House Field". Ananias was made a freeman of Salem on 18 May 1642.
They left New England for Long Island probably late in 1649, John founding a family in Southold, later moving to Huntington about 1660. Ananias obtained an allotment of land in East Hampton, settleing here about 1650. Jeremiah, oldest son of Ananias, was one of the first four settlers of Anagansett shortly after 1690. The house he built there is still standing and was sold 1950 to Mrs. Donald Lam. Anagansett has been called, facetiouly, "Conklinville".
Historians will differ on some points, after 300 years. Chauncey L Ditmars, Babylon Town Historian, wrote in 1936 about the Huntington Conklins, calling the first settler of that name there "Robert". Frank J Conkling, writing in 1894, called the first Conklin in Huntington "John". Still another genealogist, Joseph Conklin Jr stated that there was a third brother named Cornelius who remained in Salem, died there in 1667 leaving a widow who later married Robert Starr.
Ananias Conklin is thought to have owned property later C P B Jefferys and now divided by Jefferys Lane. The book "Lineal Ancestors of Susan (Mulford) Cory, " Vol 3, part 1, page 49 states that Esther, first wife of Capt Samuel Mulford, was propably dau of Ananias Conkling by his third wife, whom he married when she was the widow of Robert Rose; and that the dau was about 4 years old. Since he had a dau Hester, only about six years old when he died, who is thought to have married George Miller,
that seems unlikely. The writer has no proof of any marriage but the first, but there may have been others.
Annanias worked as a glassmaker in King Seinford, Stafford,England when he married Mary Lauder/Lavender, a spinster of St. Peter's Parish in Nottingham, England. the marriage is recorded in that church on 23 Feb 1631. Ther first son Jeremiah was born in 1634. Between 1634 and 1636 Ananias, his brother John, and their families came to America and settled in Salem, Ma. It is believed that Mary Lauder died in Salem (now Peabody), although her grace has not been located. Her death was probably between 1638 and 1639 after the births of Cornelius and Benjamin but before Ananias's marriage to Susan in 1639. Ananias and John were granted house lots in Salem in June 1638.
The following info taken from various books on early American glass. In 1638 Lawrence Southwick, A Quaker, and Obadiah Holmes formed a partnership to build the first glass factory in New England with ananias and John Conkling, practical glassmakers. Each were granted land adjoining their homes for the glass house. This land was located on the original road from Salem to Boston, and is now Abbott Street, a residential secition in Peabody. In the records of the Mass. Bay Colony, it says that the town of Salem lent the men 30 pounds for the factory to be repaid if the factory succeeded and when they were able. A descendent of Southwich was quoted as saying that bottles were made in lifht and dk green, blue and brown glass. Also, earthenware and "bull's eyes" for windows and doors were made. No samples of the work have been positively identified.
In 1639 Ananias married Susan, a member of the First Church of Salem. On 18 May 1642, John and Ananias were made freedmen of Salem and received more land. About that time they were also made freedmen of what is now Cambridge. In Vol II of Mass Bay Colony , under Oct 1645, it states that Ananias and John petitioned the General Court for a settlement with the undertakers of the factory, Holmes and Southwick. They said the works had been neglected for three years and they they had not been paid. It was at this time that Quakers were being harassed and persecuted, among them, Southwick. Ananias and John then requested a release from the agreement in order to seek work elsewhere. About 1649, Ananias and John with their families moved south and settle in Southhold, N.Y. "Southhold Town Records" Dec 1652 states the location of land holding of Ananias in Southold. "Whitaker's Southhold" shows a map of the holdings. In 1650, Ananias obtained an allotment of land in E Hampton. He shared the meadow on the N side of Hook Pond with Lion Gardiner, Thomas Charfield and William Hedges. In 4 Feb 1656, Ananias and Lion were chosen as chimney inspectors. While in E Hampton, Ananias married Dorothy. Lion disapproved of the marriage of Mary to Meremiah. He is said to have commented that the Conklings were bottlers from Nottinghamshire and that they were farmers and handymen without large estates. Ananias died in 1657 probably in E Hampton. He is presumed to be buried in Old South End Burial Ground but no stone has been found.

General Notes: East Hampton History, 1953, contains the following genealogy for Mulford:

According to some authorities, the Mulford family of East Hampton originated in the village of South Molton, Devonshire, England, where the name is also spelled Molford. Others are equally positive that the two brothers John and William Mulford who were among the first settlers here, were the sons of Thomas and Sarah Southcott Mulford of Maidstone in Kent. At a recent date there were Mulfords still living in both localities...

The two brothers came to Southampton, L.I. in 1643 from Salem, Mass. According to p. 29, Vol. 1 of the Southampton Town Records, John Mulford was granted two acres of land there on May 28, 1643 and on p. 55 it is recorded he sold his house in Southampton on Feb. 8, 1648, and in that or the following year was one of the nine persons who settled East Hampton; his younger brother William soon followed him there. The name of John Mulford appears many times in the council minutes of Connecticut, of which Colony Eastern Long Island became a part. He was commissioned a Judge in 1674. In Town affairs, keeping peace with the Indians, and representing the eastern towns in Hartford, and afterward in New York, he was prominent until his death in 1686.

When the eastern end of Long Island was first settled, a patent on certain lands was issued to the colonists direct by the reigning King of England; and under that charter the colonists instituted a government; the first Republic on American soil, it might be called. The chief magistrate was constituted the common court. A second court was constituted by a jury of twelve freeholders, and a third, the highest judiciary, was a general court, presided over by the magistrate, but in which the whole body of freeholders was constituted a jury. From 1650 to 1654, the name of John Mulford, and his only, appears as chief magistrate of this little republic, which had full treaty power with the Indians.

The name of John's first wife is unknown. He married 2nd Mrs. Fridesweide Osborn, widow of William Osborn of Salem, Mass. 11

John married.

Children from this marriage were:

General Notes: East Hampton History indicates Capt. Samuel 2 was a Town officer at an early age, member of the Provincial Assembly of N.Y. from 1705 to 1720; was Capt. of Colonial Militia. He engaged in whaling and commerce, with a warehouse and pier at Northwest. He had a good deal of trouble with the Royal governor and went over his head to London in 1716. By his pleading, the duty on whale oil -- unjustly levied so eastern Long Islanders thought -- was removed. It was on his visit to London that he earned the nickname of "Fishhook Mulford." 11

General Notes: East Hampton History says most historians give no last name for Esther. Dr. F. A. Finch says she was daughter of Stephen and Rebecca Shaw Hand. David Mulford, who has given the matter considerable study, says it is a mystery of long standing; but refers to the book "Lineal Descendants of Susan (Mulford) Cory, Wife of Capt. James Cory: Vol. 3, Part 1, p. 49 (in the Pennypacker L.I. Collection) which says of Capt. Samuel's first wife: "His first wife was Esther Conklin. She died Nov. 24, 1717, aged 64, according to tombstone; E.H. Church records give her age at death as 'about 80.' Exact date of her marriage is not known. Indirect circumstance seems to indicate Samuel's first wife was daughter of Ananias Conklin by his third wife, whom he married when she was a widow of Robert Rose. Conklin died about 1657, when daughter was about four years old. John Mulford with Thomas Baker and John Hand agreed on plan suggested by her oldest half-brother, Jeremiah Conkling, who was then administrator of the estate for 'her bringing up till she was eight years old.'" See Town Records, Vol. I, p. 116 taken from Book 2, p. 175. 11

Esther married Samuel Mulford Captain .11 Samuel was born in 1644 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York, 11 was christened in 1644 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York, 11 and died on 21 Aug 1725 of East Hampton, Suffolk, NY 11 at age 81.

544. Rufus Barton 27,28 was born in 1606 in , , , England and died in 1648 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island at age 42. Ancestral File Number: 8Q49-SK.

General Notes: Bicknell, Thomas Williams, The history of the state of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. New York: American Historical Society, 1920, 3211 pgs. has an interesting chapter entitled The Huguenots in Rhode Island.
In it, there is a statement: Rufus Barton, who came to this State from New Amsterdam in 1640, is said to have been a descendant of Pierre Berthon, also a Huge. If so, then in the fourth generation, following the male line we find General William Barton, the capturer of General Prescott; and following the female line, General Nathaniel Green, two more illustrious names which Rhode Island is proud to add to the long list of heroes which goes to make up her country's Roll of Honor.

In The French Blood in America, by Lucian J. Fosdick, 1975, there is mention of Pierre Berthon de Marign (Peter Berton, or Burton), who was descended from a prominent family of Chattelerault in Poitou. From this, it is possible that our Rufus' Barton surname may in fact be from French origin.

However, The Trail of the Huguenots by G. Elmore Reaman, says The Berton Family originated at Chatelerault, in the Province of Poitou, France. Pierre Berthon de Marigny and his wife Marguerite came to Narranganset colony, Rhode Island, between 1681 and 1685. There were forty-five families in this colony among them was Ezechiel Carre, a minister, and Pierre Ayrault, a physician, with Pierre Berthon de Mariguy, as head of the expedition.
This colony had been well equipped and for five years did very well, but owing to disputes over ownerships, they disbanded some going to Boston, some to New Rochelle, some to South Carolina, and the largest number to New York, Pierre Berthon, among the latter. Here Peter Berton was born in 1729. He became a New York merchant, was interested in shipping and master of a ship from 1756 to 1770. Declaring himself a Loyalist he was persecuted and sought refuge on Long Island. In 1683 as Captain of a company of thirty-one men, fifty-one women, twenty children, and thirty servants, he sailed in the 'Summer Fleet' of fifteen vessels carrying two thousand exiles for St. John, N.B.
Landing at Parr Town, Peter Berton went up the St. John River to 'Oak Point', where he gave land for a church, built in 1792. From there he removed to St. John. Thirteen children had been born to him and his wife, Ann Duncan, one of these being George (1774-1828), of whom the following notation was made in the family Bible--still extant--"He appears a fine straight Lad well maid a Good Complection Square Shouldered--for further Particulars Inquire of the Nurses". His son, George Frederick Street Berton, was born in Fredericton in 1808, married Delia Hooke.


The Life and Times of Samuel Gorton, Adelos Gorton, Philadelphia, 1907, page 165 has the following when describing Susanna Gorton's and Benjamin Barton's family:

His father Rufus came from England and first settled where the city of New York now stands, and is said to have been the first settler there, but left there to escape the persecution of the Dutch, he being a Quaker, and settled in Portsmouth, R. I.; lived later in Warwick and was a Magistrate there. He was in 1648 sent by the Commissioner, Samuel Gorton, who having just returned from England was detained by the Massachusetts Magistrates, in violation of the Parliament's letter, until after the Rhode Island election. The homestead at Warwick is now, or was recently, owned by Benjamin Rufus Barton, a descendant of the seventh generation. (Fuller's History of Warwick, p. 40; Austins Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island.)

The History of Warwick, Rhode Island, Oliver Payson Fuller, B. A., 1875, page 40 has the following: Rufus Barton came from England, but at what date is not know. He first settled where the city of New York now stands, and is said to have been the first settler there. He soon removed to Long Island and thence to Aquidneck, and finally to Warwick, where he continued to reside until his death. He built a "Thatch house" on the east side of the road that leads down the Neck at the head of Warwick Cove, south of the Gorton place. An old well in a vacant lot is suposed to bear some relation to the ancient dwelling. A portion or all of the homestead estate is now owned by Benjamin Rufus Barton, a descendant of the seventh generation. His religious views were of the Quaker order. His wife's name was Margaret. His children are mentioned in his will which was made for him by the town council in 1648. Benjamin married Susannah, daughter of Samuel Gorton. There were two daughters, Elizabeth and Phebe. Rufus Barton, son of Benjamin and Susannah (Gorton) married Sarah, daughter of Rowland and Mary (Allen) Robinson, of Narragausett, one of whose children, (Rowland) born April 7, 1709, married Freelove Stafford, daughter of Amos.

Before I cover Rufus' life in Rhode Island, I would like to illustrate the conditions that he must have faced in New York prior to his departure to Rhode Island.

"Portrait of New Netherland", by Ellis Lawrence Reesly, Columbia University Press, 1945. Chapter VIII, Men of Religion and Skeptics: describes the ordeal of Robert Hodgson, a lad of twenty-three who spent two months proclaiming his Quaker message throughout the towns of Gravesend, Jamaica, and Hempstead on Long Island without coming into collisions with the local authorities. However, in time he came to the attention of Governor Stuyvesant. The young Hodgson was whipped, imprisoned, and placed in a labor gang, but refused to pay his fine or perform work.

Even Stuyvesant's own sister Anna, who had followed him to America after the death of her husband and who like all the other women in the directorial household was almost conspicuous by what she thought of his behavior, took sufficient courage to tell her pompous brother what she thought of his behavior, and Stuyvesant was forced to give in. Hodgson was released from jail, was placed under medical care and when sufficiently recovered, was sent to Rhode Island to join the other vagabonds who, according to the general notion of the people of New Amsterdam, composed the greater part of the population of that lamentable corner of the world.

Not withstanding the comments of George E. McCracken of Drake University contained in the notes of his father notes, we don't know exactly what conditions forced our Rufus to leave New Amsterdam and "join the other vagabonds", but this gives us some insight. Now, on with his life in Rhode Island.

The Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island; Comprising Three Generations of Settlers who Came Before 1690, John Osborne Austin, 1887, page 250 contains a rather detailed description of Rufus Barton and three generations of his descendants. Some of the highlights are:

1640 - Portsmouth. He came here about this time, having fled from the persecution of the Dutch at New York.

1641, Feb 4 - He had a grant of land.

1647, Aug 8. Warwick. Town Council.

1647 - Town Magistrate

1648, May 22 - Having been sent with another messenger to petition the General Court Massachusetts (in matters then in difference between Warwick and Massachusetts), he learned at Dedham that the Court had adjourned, and hence wrote the following letter under above date, from the inn of Michael Powell, at Dedham.

"To the right worshipful Mr. John Winthrop, Governor of the Massachusetts: Humbly presented to your worship's consideration. That whereas I, with another, was chosen by the General Court held at Providence the eighteenth of this month and sent with an humble request to this honourable state concerning Shaomet business but when we came to Dedham hearing that the General Court was adjourned, I, your suppliant (being an inhabitant of Shaomet) seriously weighing my present condition there, I made bold to advise with Mr. Powell concerning the same, who advised me to repair to your worship, which (on consideration) I could not, till I had some knowledge of your worship's favourable acceptation. My humble request therefore is, that your worship would be pleased to send me your mind in a few lines concerning the premises. So, craving your worship's favourable constitution, I remain yours, most humbly, Rufus Barton, Dedham, May 22, 1648.

1648 - He died in this year intestate, and the Town Council made an inventory and distribution of estate.

Death: NEHGS Vol XII (1858) page 304, Settlement of Estates in Rhode Island. Rufus Barton died intestate and the Warwick Town Counsel ordered the disposition of his estate. His wife Margarett was already dead and his three children Benjamin, Elizabeth, and ffebie (Phebe?) were all under age.

On 6/29/1997 I received the following from Janel Woodbury <cinebit@fiber.net>:

I do know, however from the 1994 addendum and the 1996 ancestral file, someone submitted names for temple proxy listing Rufus who married Margaret as the son of Edward Barton born abt 1589 in England. (No mother given). His siblings were Enoch, Joseph, Thomas, Marmaduke, Elijah, Elisha, Noah, and Roger Barton. Noah and Roger were born in Westchester, NY and the others born in England. Edward Barton was the son of Edward and Elizabeth Barton, both born about 1563 in England. Edward said to have died in Cape Porporus Maine at the age of 98. Other siblings of Edward (II), were Thomas, William, Rufus, and Hugh.

However, the recent Barton DNA (2002-2003) study all but proves this is not the case. Rufus' ancestry is still unknown.

Savage said: RUFUS, Providence, had fled from persecution by the Dutch at Manhattan, and sat down 1640, at Portsmouth, R. I. In Winthrop II. 323 is a letter from him to the Governor in 1648, and a few months after he died in such a manner, as caused one to be charged with his murder, but without conviction. By the town council of Providence as Judge Brayton assures me, a sort of distribution as testament of his establishment was made 20 Mar. 1666 to the children Elizabeth and Benjamin, who was then under 21 years of age and Phebe, with widow Margaret, who married Walter Todd. Phebe married 23 May 1671, Richard Codner of Swanzey. STEPHEN, Bristol, perhaps son of the preceding or of Thomas, was representative 1690, at Plymouth, Connecticut and under the new charter 1692, at Boston. THOMAS, Mass. 1616, may have been brother of Rufus.

The following notes are from: http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/b/e/r/Dana-K-Berry/GENE2-0001.html

Notes for RUFUS BARTON:
Rufus is thought to have come to America in about 1640 from Lancashire, England.

An immigrant to the Americas in the years between 1620 and 1640, Rufus settled first near the Dutch settlement of New Amsterdam (New York). He left there, soon after arriving in Portsmouth, RI and then removed to nearby Warwick, RI. He was Quaker by faith and hence considered an "outcast" as was Roger Williams who settled Providence, William Coddington of Newport, Samuel Gorton of Warwick, and Ann Hutchinson. Samuel Gorton of Warwick was a neighbor of Rufus Barton and up to 1648, both were active with Roger Williams in the Civil Affairs at Providence. A letter sent by Rufus Barton to governor Winthrop requests safe passage and "favorable acceptation" into Massachusetts Bay. "Shaomett" was the Indian name for Warwick, Rhode Island.

From a chapter of a book presumed to be a history of Massachusetts, chapter on John Winthrop, Governor, p.311:

"To the right worshipful Mr. John Winthrop, Governor of the Massachusetts,

Humbly presented to your worship's consideration, That whereas I, with another, was chosen by the general court held at Providence the eighteenth of this month, and sent with an humble request to this honorable state concerning Shaomett business, but when we came at Dedham, hearing that the general court was adjourned. I your suppliant (being an inhabitant of Shaomett) seriously weighing my present condition there, I made bold to advise with Mr. Powell * concerning the same, who advised me to repair to your worship, which (on consideration) I could not, till I had some knowledge of your worship's favorable acceptation. My humble request therefore is, that your worship would be pleased to send me your mind in a few lines concerning the premises. So, craving your worship's favorable construction,
I remain,
Yours, most humbly
Dedham, May 22, 1648 Rufus Barton

* Michael Powell kept the ordinary, or tavern, at Dedham; but coming later to Boston, was one of the founders and ruling elders of the Second Church.

Rufus Barton had a grant of land in 1641, was in the Town Council of Warwick in 1647 and was also Town Magistrate in 1647.

Rufus Barton died in late 1648 from gunshot wounds during a dispute. The circumstances of the event are unknown. His wife and children were thereafter cared for by Samuel Gorton. The only son of Rufus, Benjamin, married Samuel's daughter, Susannah, in 1672. The Will and Testament of Rufus follows with a biography of Samuel Gorton. (Biography not included here) (Ed. Comment: Since the Will is dated 1666, well after Rufus' death, it is most likely that it is Margaret's Will couched in her late husband's name, permitting his only son and heir to claim his inheritance, he being twenty-one in 1666.) "Whereupon the Counsell of the town of Warwick now in being are constrained according to their engaged and trust committed unto them to renew the writing of the will of the above named Ruffus (sic) Barton as neere as it was before as can possibly be that of the Counsell now in being, being the same that were the Counsell in the year of the deceased partis.

Rufus married Margrett Stafford . Margrett died after 1648.

Children from this marriage were:

Hi, what was ... source for Margaret
Hunniwell?

In Arnold's History of Warwick, no parents are known for Rufus, and Rufus wife is Margaret Stafford. The Town Records show Margaret as the wife of Rufus.

You seem to have the names correct as I know them from there on down. There are other sources for Margaret, as well. As she was left a widow when Rufus was killed in 1648, I believe I have seen where the estate was settled. Their son Benjamin was a Town Official in Warwick at its early days. He inherited the original farm which was part of the Cowesett Purchase. Documentation of that information is in the RI Historical Society Vaults. The land was purchased from the Indians. I believe it is Chief Miantonomi's seal on the document.

...

Possibly Margaret remarried, and her 2nd marriage name was Hunniwell.

Thanks, Betsey Barton Perra

I have always know her as Margaret Stafford. I believe there was a document at the time of Rufus murder, stating that his wife, Margaret Stafford was to inherit with land to go to son Benjamin at her death. I believe that my aunt Ruth Barton had documented that. She used to pour through the old records at Warwick City Hall. I believe those documents have now are not allowed to be touched, but I think were transferred to microfilm a few years ago. Also one of the early books disappeared for a while, but I think was found. I also did get to look at that first record book way back in the 1950's. Went with Aunt and she introduced me to it.

I have that Margaret Stafford married Rufus in England, she being from Salisbury England.

I believe that info to be correct. I also believe that there were four brothers that came to America together. Landing at New Amsterdam (NY) One stayed there, Rufus went directly to settlement of Roger Williams at Providence RI, and one to Mass. I can't remember what the family lore on the fourth. Also we have never found ANY documentation of the parentage of those brothers. I have seen some lists on the internet listing Edward, and another listing Samuel. I think both are not correct. Someday with all the ancient files becoming accessable via microfilm etc. we may find the link. At the present, I will discard the idea of Margaret Hunniwell/Honeywell. It is possible that Edward married such a Margaret, and had a Rufus, but the RI Rufus was here in or before 1642. His son Benjamin was born in Warwick in 1645, and married Susannah Gorton, dau. of Samuel & Elizabeth Gorton. This Benjamin had quite a parcel of children. I have 5 listed on my computer, but I believe there were more. I saw Arnold's History of South County families(not positive of the whole name of book) In it all the children of the first three or four generations are listed. Not sure if that book is still able to be seen. I did some poor xerox copies over 25 years ago, and the book was in poor shape then. Also those old copies have faded a good bit. I have buried them someplace to keep them away from light, but not sure where they are just now. "Out of sight, out of mind".

Please copy me if anyone can document the brothers, or a parent. Rufus' parents were not mentioned in the original Warwick records.

Hope I have helped someone have a brainsstorm. Oh, I was always told that we were English. Didn't know about the Scottish or Welch. That's interesting. Today I met an Adelaide Barton (maiden name) who is decended from Issac Barton, whom she says came from Killcomonbegg, Ireland circa 1714. That's a new one on me. I did not know our heritage might have Irish. Not necessarily good or bad. Just interesting.

We are what we are. Gives it a new twist.

Well, enough I think, Can't remember any more at the moment. Got to look for those Xerox copies. The extra siblings may shed some light. Keep in touch Dorothy. That John must be there, The earliest John on my list was b. 1744, m. Mercy Card. I know you know about that one. I don't recall any John Jr.'s ....As Ever, Betsey

Margrett married Rufus Barton . Rufus was born in 1606 in , , , England and died in 1648 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island at age 42.

Margrett next married Walter Todd .


546. Samuel Gorton,27,28 son of Thomas Gorton and Ann , was born on 12 Feb 1592 in Manchester, Lancaster, Eng, was christened on 12 Feb 1592 in Cathedral Chr, Manchester, Lancashire, England, died on 10 Dec 1677 in Providence, Provience, Rhode Island at age 85, and was buried in Family Cemetery, Warwick Cove, Warwick, Rhode Island. Ancestral File Number: 8Q4G-FC.

General Notes: Samuel Gorton's life is well documented in The Life and Times of Samuel Gorton, The Founders and the Founding of the Republic, A Section of Early United States History and A History of the Colony of Providence and Rhode Island Plantations in the Narragansett Indian Country now the State of Rhode Island 1592 - 1626 - 1677 - 1687 with a genealogy of Samuel Gorton's descendants to the present time. Compiled from various accounts, histories, letters, and published and unpublished records by Adelos Gorton, Philadelphia, 1907.

Unfortunately I only copied those portions applicable to Rufus Barton from the text. However, Savage mentions Samuel Gorton frequently in his text.

SAMUEL GORTON, Warwick, a most active religious disturber of several places, born about 1600, at Gorton, where, he says, his family had been many generations. Came to Boston 1636, went soon to Plymouth, thence, in 1638, to Rhode Island. He was admitted as an inhabitant 27 June of that year but in the autumn of 1641 was disquieting Roger Williams at Providence; in 1643, with Holden, Greene, and others, made the great movement to purchase of Warwick from the Indians which led to hostile aggression by the government of Massachusetts who took all his settlers prisoners, and punished them cruelly not without some hesitation even sparing their lives. Next year he went to England with other sufferers and obtained just assertion of his right, and had peace near thirty years for his adherents in the cloudy doctrines. See good Memories in R. I. Hist. Coll. II. by Judge Staples; and critical disquis. by Charles Deane in Genealog. Reg. IV. 201. He had ch. Samuel, John, and Benjamin, beside the ds. Maher, who married Daniel Coles; Mary, who married perhaps, Peter Greene, first, and, next, John Sanford; Sarah, who married William Mace; Ann, who married John Warner; Elizabeth married John Crandall, and Susanna, married Benjamin Barton.

The Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island, page 302 contains the following:

His occupation in England has been that of a clothier. His family, he says, had been for many generations at Gorton (a chapelry within the parish of Manchester, in Lancaster County).

1635, Jun. 18. He (called Samuel Gorton, of London, clothier) had release from John Dukenfield of Dunkenfeld, Chester County, England, of all sorts and causes of action from the beginning of the world.

1637, Mar. He arrived at Boston from London, having with him wife Elizabeth, eldest son Samuel and other children.

1637. Plymouth. He hired part of a house of Ralph Smith with whom he soon had a difference of religious topics.

1638, Dec. 4. He was summoned to court to answer complaint of Ralph Smith (Elder of the church at Plymouth) and there he carried himself so mutinously and seditiously as that he was for the same and for his turbulent carriages towards both magistrates and ministers in the presence of the Court, sentenced to find sureties for his good behavior during the time he should stay in the jurisdiction, which was to be only fourteen days.

1639, Apr. 30. Portsmouth. He and twenty-eight others signed the following compact: "We whose names are underwritten do acknowledge ourselves the legal subjects of his Majesty King Charles, and in his name do heerby bind ourselves into a civil body politick, unto his laws according to matters of justice."

1640. His servant maid assaulted a woman whose cow had trespassed on his land and the servant was ordered before the court, but he appeared in her behalf refusing to allow her to come to court. He was indicted on fourteen counts, among the charges brought against being the following: That he had said "that the government was such as was not to be subjected unto." He called the magistrates "Just Asses" - He called a freeman in open court, "saucy boy and Jack-an-Apes" - He charged the court with acting the second part of Plymouth magistrates, who as he said "condemned him in the chimney corner ere they heard him speak" - When the Governor said "all you that own the King take away Gorton and carry him to prison," he replied "all you own the King take away Coddington and carry him to prison" &c. Having already suffered imprisonment, he was now sentenced to be whipped, and went soon to Providence.

1640, May 8. Providence. His democratic ideas for church and state, &c., soon led to division of settlement here and Roger Williams wrote to Winthrop under this date as follows: " Master Gorton having abused high and low at Aquidneck, is now bewitching and bemadding poor Providence, both with his unclean and foul censures of all the ministers of this country (for which myself have in Christ's name withstood him) and also denying all visible and external ordances in depth of Familism," &c.

1641, Nov. 17. He had taken up his residence with the Pawtuxet settlers before this time, and here too there was a division into parties, the majority adhering to his views. A letter was sent to Massachusetts at this date signed by thirteen persons, who complained of the "insolent and riotous carriage of Samuel Gorton and his company" and therefore petitioned Massachusetts to "lend us a neighbor like helping hand."

1643, Jan 12. Warwick. He and ten others bought of Miantonomi for 144 fathoms of wampum, tract of land that was called Shawomet (Warwick).

1643, Sep 12. He with others of Warwick, was notified to appear at General Court at Boston, to hear complaint of two Indian Sachems Pomham and Socconocco, as to "some unjust and injurious dealing toward them by yourselves.
" The Warwick men declined to obey the summons, declaring that they were legal subjects of the King of England and beyond the limits of Massachusetts authority, to whom they would acknowledge no subjection. Soldiers were soon sent, who besieged the settlers in a fortified house. In a parley it was now said "that they held blasphemous errors which they must repent of" or go to Boston for trial, and they were soon carried thence.

1643, Oct. 17. He was brought with others before the court, and the following charges preferred against him. "Upon much examination and serious consideration of your writing, with your answers about them, we do charge you to be a blasphemous enemy of the true religion of our "Lord Jesus Christ and his Holy Ordinances, and also of all civil authority among the people of God and particularly in this jurisdiction."

1643, Nov. 3. He was sentenced as follows: "Ordered to be confined to Charlestown, there to be kept at work and to wear such bolt or irons as might hinder his escape; and if he broke his confinement or by speech or writing published or maintained any of the blasphemies or abominable heresies wherewith he hath been charged by the General Court, or should reproach or reprove the churches of our Lord Jesus Christ in these United Colonies, or the civil government, &c., that upon conviction thereof by a trial by jury he should suffer death." All but three of the magistrates condemned him to death at the trial.

1644, Mar. He was released from prison (but banished from both Massachusetts and Warwick), and same year went to England with Randall Holding and John Greene to obtain redress for their wrongs. The were obliged to take ship at New York.

The Complete Book of Emigrants, 1607-1776 has the following: 19 April 1644. Copy of Act of submission by Pessicus Sachem and the Narragansetts Indians to the government of England. Samuel Gorton, John Wickes, Randal Holden and John Warner are appointed to execute the deed witnessed by Christopher Helme, Robert Potter and Richard Carder (CSPC).

From "The Greenes of Rhode Island":

Samuel Gorton, born 1592, at Gorton, near Manchester, England, where his family had been seated for generations, was one of the most prominent men of his times. He was a clothier in London, and emigrated to America, landing in Boston, March, 1637. He was leader of the pioneer settlers at Warwick, RI, and, though sharply criticized and cruelly persecuted, it was written of him: "He was a man of great ability and individuality, of perfect sincerity, of strong pertinacity in his very peculiar views of both religion and politics; a man who had the courage of his convictions; and the stocks, the scourge and the prison, and even the overhanging shadow of the gallows could not make him deviate a hair's breadth from what he deemed to be right. ... After the R.I. Charter was obtained he was one of the best and ablest citizens of the State, a sagacious counselor, a wise and able negotiator; he won the confidence of the red and white men alike, lived long in the land, and died respected" (see "The Providence Plantations for 250 Years", pp.30-31). He was successively Magistrate, Corporator, Foreign Commissioner, Assemblyman, Judge and Senator, and, in 1651, President or Governor.

Many of the founders of Rhode Island were persecuted and jailed by leaders of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, who tried to maintain control of Shawomet (Warwick) and lands of the Naragansett Indians. Samuel Gorton, John Greene (physician) and Randall Holden, all of whom had been persecuted, travelled to England in 1644 where their claims to Shawomet and the Naragansett claims were upheld; they returned to Boston on Sept. 13, 1646 with an order from the Governor in Chief, Lord High Admiral, and Commissioner appointed by Parliament for the English Plantations of America directing that they be allowed to return in freedom to the tract of land called Naragansett Bay and to inhabit and abide there without interruption. Thus this successful appeal and the stern rebuke it brought to the tyranny of the Puritan Hierarchy led in a momentous degree to the preservation of the whole Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, and the final emancipation of its entire territory from the usurpation of Massachusetts Bay.

From "Samuel Gorton of Rhode Island":

Removed first to Plymouth, MA, then to Portsmouth, Providence, Cranston, and Warwick, RI. He was President of the Providence Plantations in 1651 and founder of the town of Warwick. In the forefront of political reforms, he fought valiantly for the separation of church and state, played an important role in the movement to ban slavery, and stood for the rights of Indians, paying them for his lands when many other colonists merely appropriated their real estate. A lay minister, he was the author of numerous historical and religious volumes. On a mission back to England he was instrumental in obtaining a royal charter for Rhode Island and in defending its political independence from the threat of dominance by Massachusetts.

There is a website devoted to Samuel Gorton:

http://www.empire.net/~sgorton/warwick/warwick.html

It contains this description:

Samuel Gorton (1592 - 1677)

The Early Years, and Emigrating to America

Samuel Gorton was born February 12, 1592, and died December 10, 1677. The "Gorton" name appears to derive from the hamlet of Gorton, on the outskirts of Manchester, England. Samuel's father was Thomas Gorton, and he was a tailor before he came to the New World.

He emigrated from London to Boston in 1636, with strong (and unique) religious beliefs. He was thrown out of Boston, and later thrown out of Plymouth, Portsmouth, and Aquidneck Island. He later migrated to Providence, Rhode Island. There he quarreled with Roger Williams, a religious radical and Providence's leader, as well as other town members. Gorton's views on religion and government were not appreciated by the town.

Gorton did not believe in an organized ministry or priesthood, but instead felt that everyone should come to his own relationship with God. Additionally, Gorton saw no reason to listen to the colonial government, feeling that Rhode Island "had no authorie legally derived to deale with me. Neither had they the choice of the people, but set up themselves. ...and I thought my selfe as fitt and able to governe my selfe and family as any that were then upon Rhode Island."

Roger Williams wrote that "Master Gorton having abused high and low at Squidneck, is now bewitching and bemadding poor Providence, with his uncleane and foul censures of all the ministers of this country ... and also denying all visible and externall ordinances..."

In November 1641, a delegation from the Providence government attempted to confiscate the cattle of one of Gorton's followers. The "Gortonists" put up a fight, and rescued the follower and his cattle, causing a riot and bloodshed. Gorton and his followers would soon move again.

Oliver Payson Fuller, in his book The History of Rhode Island (1875) wrote while comparing Gorton to Roger Williams:

"Gorton was also a preacher and founder of a religious sect, and his views, both ecclesiastical and political, were not only obnoxious to the colonists of Massachusetts but also in a lesser degree to those of Providence and Aquidneck."

Samuel married Elizabeth on 20 May 1628 in , , , England.

547. Elizabeth 27.,28 Ancestral File Number: 9J62-2M.

General Notes: Both Savage and Austin, in their genealogical dictionaries, mention Samuel Gorton's wife as Elizabeth. Austin indicated she died 1677 +. However, looking at the LDS Ancestral File, it has his wife as Mary Maplett. I went back to Austin's Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island and noted an apparent correction cut and pasted to the bottom of page 302. (It is probably from American Genealogist, v.20, p.186-187 as noted in pen on that page. There are a series of corrections to Austin's work in several issues of the AG and are noted and included as notes and an addendum to the current edition of Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island.)

It reads in part: GORTON, 1st column. The mother of most of his children and prehaps his only wife, was Mary Mapplett, of John and Mary. If he had an earlier wife Elizabeth she was mother of his oldest son Samuel, (who was considerably older than the other children, apparently) and possibly of one or two more. In 1636 Mr. Gorton wrote (of his Plymouth, Mass. residence) concerning his wife, that she was "as tenderly brought up as any man's wife then in that town." This might well have applied to his wife Mary Maplett.
Her brother, Doctor John Maplett was one of the physicians extraodinary to King Charles II, as seen on his tombstone in Bath Abbey Church, Bath, England, where he latterly lived, though called of Middlesex County, England. 1646, Dec 7., Mrs. Mary Maplett in will of this date gives to "daughter Mary Gorton, wife of Samuel Gorton, living in New England, all the money which her said husband Samuel Gorton doth owe me and a herd of cattle which he hath of mine." Also £10 to buy her mourning. 1662, Apr 9, he and wife Mary deeded land.
1670, Apr 18, in will of Dr. John Maplett, of Bath, England, he gives to "my dear sister, Mrs. Mary Gorton of New England" - 20 s. and to each of her children 10 s. apiece.

Elizabeth married Samuel Gorton on 20 May 1628 in , , , England. Samuel was born on 12 Feb 1592 in Manchester, Lancaster, Eng, was christened on 12 Feb 1592 in Cathedral Chr, Manchester, Lancashire, England, died on 10 Dec 1677 in Providence, Provience, Rhode Island at age 85, and was buried in Family Cemetery, Warwick Cove, Warwick, Rhode Island.

548. Anthony Low 27,28 was born in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island and died in 1692.

General Notes: Savage said ANTHONY, Boston, son of John, a wheelwright, removed after 1654 to Warwick, had wife Frances, and son John, perhaps other children. He was afterwards of Swansey, when his home had been burned at Warwick in Mar. 1676, and in July afterwards performed good service for the famous Capt. Church.

The Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island, page 338 contains the following:

He was son of John & Elizabeth Low, his father being a wheelwright in Boston, where he died 1658, Dec. 1.

1666, Mar. 29. Warwick. He bought of Christopher Hauxburst, his dwelling house and land in Pawtuxet.

1676. He bought the terms of service of five Indians "great and small," for £8.
They had been taken captive by Providence men, and were to serve out a certain term of years and then be free.

1676, Jun. Captain Benjamin Church was negotiating with the Seaconnet Indians and much needed a vessel, but met with disappointment owing to false and faint hearted men, &c., "until at last Mr. Anthony Low put into the harbor with a loaded vessel bound to the westward, and being made acquainted with Mr. Church's case told him that he had so much kindness for him and was so pleased with the business that he was engaged in, that he would run the venture of his vessel and cargo to wait upon him." He brought him to Newport where Mr. Church disembarked.

1682, Oct. 31. His Indian servant James now living with him at Swanzey, having often solicited the court for his freedom, (he having been out in the rebellion) it was now ordered by the court that he should be free the Tuesday after March Court unless Mr. Low appears to give satisfying reason to contrary; and when he goes away his master shall give him a good suit of clothes.

1692, Aug. 6. Will. "The last will and testament of Anthony Low, this sixth day of August 1692; first I do will and bequeath to my loving wife the house she now lives in, during her life and after her decease to my son Samuel Low & his heirs forever. And to my eldest son John Low, all in right and title at Warwick to him and his heirs forever. And to my son Samuel, my sloop Dolphin which now I am in, my wife and my son Samuel taking care to maintain my daughter Elizabeth during her life; so resting with dear love to all my friends, this I leave as my last will and testament this sixth day of August, 1692. I also bequeath my plantation at Swanzey to my son Simon Davis, and all the rest that is mine to my wife and my son Samuel as aforesaid.

His wife's gravestone is still to be seen in the burial ground at New Meadow Neck, Warren, R. I.

His widow married Samuel Reape, of Newport, before the end of Jan. 1669; and the son Zechariah, died without issue. He had also some others. This name is often found without an h, but rarely in modern days.

General Notes: Savage contains:

WILLIAM, Dorchester 1642, freeman 10 May 1643, removed to Boston, and was one of the founders of the first Baptist church 1665; would, early in Philip's war, have formed a compliment of volunteers for service against the common enemy, but, as most of the associates were his religious persuasion, his and their offers were slighted. As the war grew more dangerous in the following spring, he was encouraged by the government and had command on the upper waters of Connecticut river on 18 May surprised the Indians at the place where the falls have since borne his name, and gave them a signal defeat, but on the return he was surrounded at Green river and the next day after the Falls fight was killed with fourteen of his men. See Niles strange. indistinct, in 3 Mass.
Hist. Coll. VI. 184. His wife was a widow of Key Alsop, and children were, probably by another perhaps Frances not all born in Boston, at least only Prudence, 12 Oct. 1665, is to be found in the records yet his will made 10 Feb.
1676, as he was suddenly called to the war, probably 21 July following provided for wife Mary and children without naming any, though he refers to his eldest daughter. Farmer notes that eight of this name had, in 1834, been graduated at Harvard eight at Yale, and six at other New England Colleges.

The descendants of Captain William Turner can feel consoled by the following from Savage:

EPHRAIM KEMPTON, Boston, gunsmith, married 7 Nov. 1673, Patience, daughter of Elder Thomas Faunce, had removed 1677 to Salem, but, perhaps, went to Plymouth late in life, and his widow is one of the instances, well authenticated (as very few are) of much exceeded 100 years of age. Her memory was accurate, if not happy, for she saw the head of Philip, the great Indian king, upon a pole at Plymouth, where it remained over twenty years from his fall, and said, that a wren used to make her nest in the skull, where she hatch. her young every year.

Dear Carl,
The only research I have done on this line was done several years ago at The Rundell Library in Rochester, NY which only had one source. The rest of the information I found on the Internet and I listed any info I found on the notes section of my computer program. I haven't posted my database on the internet because I haven't researched any of those notes myself and state that whenever I correspond with anyone. If you have things that will correct my information I would love to know about it.
I have tacked onto the bottom of this message 2 "Family History Report of 2 generations" of what I have only garnered from the internet. I too get very miffed when someone lists things without sourcing the info. I will also list the two places you can find Dave Lehman and Al Meyers....
http://members.cxp.com/DLehman/
http://www.ezonline.com/aem/ (who does NOT list Elizabeth Ingraham)
I haven't worked on this line for sometime so please forgive me for not being really "up" on it....
Please note the ***ed portion just below.
Again, any help that you can contribute would be greatly appreciated.

Death: Aug 1683, Northampton, Hampshire, Massachusetts
***NOT the son of Arthur Ingraham and Eleanor Slingsby!!! see:

Came to New England about 1640. Resided in Rehoboth as early as 1643. Proprietor Rehoboth, 1645.
Information from "Ancestral Lines" by C. Boyer, Eileen Tripple, the internet and LDS records.
"Ancestral Lines" says:
Ingraham
As explained below there is some doubt whether there was only one Richard Ingraham in New England in the seventeenth century.
1. Richard INGRAHAM, born about 1595, perhaps died in Northampton, Massachusetts Bay, in August 1683. That Richard Ingraham of Rehoboth, Plymouth Colony, and the man of the same name in Northampton from 1668 to 1683 are one and the same is open to question [Nichols, TAG, 21:190-191].
The name of the wife of Richard Ingraham of Rehoboth is not known. He may be the one who married (secondly, if so) Mrs. Joan (Rockwell) Baker, widow of Jeffrey Baker of Windsor Connecticut [Frost's Davol-Willits, 104-105].
He came to New England about 1640 and is recorded in Rehoboth land records as early as 1643. If the same man, he moved to Northampton in 1668.

RESEARCH NOTES: freeman 1646
some sources say Richard is the son of Henry Bullock [1595-1663]and Susan [1593-1644].
following information from "The Descendants of Colonel William Bullock of
Rehoboth, MA" by Virginia Miller Deagan, 1997
Richard Bullock's ancestry has never been satisfactorily proved in spite of research by many people. He first appeared in Rehoboth, Plymouth Colony, in 1644 when he purchased the lot that had been set aside for the Governor. The lot was valued at 200 Pounds. Richard was only about 22 years old at the time, if we accept the statement he made in testifying on a matter regarding the estate of Alexander Winchester in 1648. It is thought that Richard was born in Essex, England in 1622. There is no satisfactory proof of his parentage. It has been said that he came to America with two older brothers, Henry and Edward Bullock in 1635 and that since he was not yet 21, stayed with or near them until he received his patrimony when he came of age (Davis, Davis Family of Rehoboth). Another possibility which has not been researched is the Richard Bullock, son of John Bullock who was baptized 26 May 1622 in Pitchford, Shropshire, England.
Considering the fact that 200 Pounds was a large sum of money for such a young man at that time and that he apparently had a good education since he was chosen to be a town clerk, it would seem that his family in England were of a substantial class. It has also been said that Richard came first to Rhode Island and associated with Roger Williams, also with no proof (Pierce, A Bullock Family History).
On 7 April 1635, an Edward Bullock, 32, arrived in New England on the ship "Elizabeth". His
will was dated at Dorchester, Mass. on 25 May 1649 when he was about to return to England.
On 20 June 1635, Henry Bullock, age 40 and wife, Susan arrived with 3 children, Henry 8, Mary 6, and Thomas 2. He settled in Salem, Mass. No positive connection with Richard has been found with either of these men, but most of the original proprietors of Rehoboth came from either Dorchester or Salem. Rev. Samuel Newman who was the "real founder of Rehoboth" came to America in 1635 and resided for four years in Dorchester, then went to Weymouth, Mass. as Pastor. He remained there until the spring of 1644 when the majority of his church with others of Hingham Mass. migrated to the place that the Indians called Seekonk and to which Newman gave the name of Rehoboth, whose scriptural name means enlargement (Tilton, A History of Rehoboth, MA).
On August 4, 1647, Richard Bullock married Elizabeth Ingraham in Rehoboth. She is said to have been the daughter of Richard and Elizabeth (Wignall) Ingraham and a descendant of Sir Arthur Ingraham of Watertown, Mass. Elizabeth was born about 1629 and died at the age of 30 on January 7, 1659/60, shortly after the birth of her sixth child, Hopestill.
On July 21, 1660, Richard married Elizabeth Billington, daughter of Francis and Christian (Penn) Billington and grand-daughter of John Billington who arrived in New England on the Mayflower. The Billington family was described by Gov.William Bradford as "ye profanest family" and John Billington received the distinction of being the first man hanged in the Plymouth Colony for committing a murder.
Richard Bullock's home lot was along the road leading to the common opposite the lot of Rev. Samuel Newman. During his lifetime, Richard was given additional lands. He drew rights in the "Great (Seekonk) Plain " in 1644 and in 1647 he was allotted the rights of Nathan Pratt's land after Mr. Pratt left Rehoboth. In June 1653 he was one of 49 residents who were allowed to draw meadow lands and in 1658 he again shared in a drawing of lands in the northern part of the town. On 1 October 1661 he was given "soo much land at the watersyde, against the end of his lott as should be judged to be convenient to sell". In 1666, he also shared in the division of the Wannamoisett lands. He spent all of his life in Rehoboth. It has been widely accepted that he was in Newtown Long Island in 1656, but this was probably the Richard Bullock who was named as having a debt to our Richards estate - probably a relative, maybe a nephew. It could not have been his son, Richard who was only a baby when his father died.
Certainly, Richard was a farmer as were most of the men of that time, but in addition, he was the Town Clerk of Rehoboth from 1659 to the time of his death. Colonial records show he was made a freeman in May 1646 but do not state his residence. As town clerk, he was paid a salary plus an additional amount for each birth, marriage and death record that he inscribed. He appeared to be an honorable citizen of the town. He took the Oath of Fidelity in 1656. In 1662 the records show that he was appointed to serve on a committee regarding liquor and powder shipments and that on June 8, 1664 he was chosen to collect the "Assize" tax.
Richard Bullock was licensed to keep a ferry at Palmer's River on 1 March 1664 by the Plymouth Colony. This allowed him to ferry horses from Rehoboth across the Pawtucket (Blackstone) River to the Providence Plantation of Roger Williams . It appears that he already had a ferry and this allowed him to build a horse ferry in addition. He also was granted the right to sell liquor "to strangers and
passengers but not to town dwellers ."
It has been suggested that Richard was a member of the Baptist church of which the Rev. John Myles was pastor. We do know that shortly after Richard's death, several of his children were active in that church. As a respected citizen and a freeman, Richard almost certainly attended the Congregationalist Church of the Rev. Samuel Newman. Since the Bullock property was closer to Swansea and the church in Swansea was Baptist, the family may have attended it after Newman's death in 1663. Rehoboth town records show that in 1666, Richard protested at a town meeting that the church, rather than the citizens should choose the minister.
Richard died on 22 November, 1667. Books were listed among the items on his inventory along with a pewter spoon, arms & ammunition, and 3 blankets as the items with most value. Livestock consisted of "2 yearlings, 2 steers, one heefer, one horse and 6 cows". He had dairy vessels with beer barrel and was owed 23 shillings from Richard Bullock. This could not have been his son, Richard who was born shortly before he died, therefore, there must have been another Richard Bullock in New England at that time. Possibly the Richard who was listed in Newtown, Long Island was this other Richard Bullock.
"Richard Bullock of Rehoboth, 1644, and Some of His Descendants" by Hon. J. Russell Bullock (1815 - 1899), a handwritten manuscript in the Providence RI Historical Society Library.
"It has been stated that Richard was a son of Henry of Salem, who died there in 1652, but Henry came in 1630 on the ship "Abigail" with his wife, Susan and only children, Henry, Mary and Thomas and in his will, he names only one child, Henry. Of Henry's children none bear the name of Richard.
Edward Bullock of Dorchester came from London 1635, had a wife, Elizabeth. His will probated 1656 names only his wife and daughter, Hannah (Johnson).
Therefore, no known record exists of Richard's birthplace or or his parentage, or of the vessel in which he came over."

1 Richard BULLOCK
Birth: 16 Jul 1622, St. Lawrence, Essex, England
Death: bef 22 Nov 1667, Rehoboth, Bristol, Massachusetts
Occ: town clerk, ran ferry on Palmer's River in 1664.
Father: Edward BULLOCK (1580->1649)
Mother: Elizabeth Susan WILD (1602-)
One of 58 proprietors of Rehoboth in 1664.
RESEARCH NOTES: freeman 1646
some sources say Richard is the son of Henry Bullock [1595-1663]and Susan [1593-1644].
following information from "The Descendants of Colonel William Bullock of
Rehoboth, MA" by Virginia Miller Deagan, 1997
Richard Bullock's ancestry has never been satisfactorily proved in spite of research by many people. He first appeared in Rehoboth, Plymouth Colony, in 1644 when he purchased the lot that had been set aside for the Governor. The lot was valued at 200 Pounds. Richard was only about 22 years old at the time, if we accept the statement he made in testifying on a matter regarding the estate of Alexander Winchester in 1648. It is thought that Richard was born in Essex, England in 1622. There is no satisfactory proof of his parentage. It has been said that he came to America with two older brothers, Henry and Edward Bullock in 1635 and that since he was not yet 21, stayed with or near them until he received his patrimony when he came of age (Davis, Davis Family of Rehoboth). Another possibility which has not been researched is the Richard Bullock, son of John Bullock who was baptized 26 May 1622 in Pitchford, Shropshire, England.
Considering the fact that 200 Pounds was a large sum of money for such a young man at that time and that he apparently had a good education since he was chosen to be a town clerk, it would seem that his family in England were of a substantial class. It has also been said that Richard came first to Rhode Island and associated with Roger Williams, also with no proof (Pierce, A Bullock Family History).
On 7 April 1635, an Edward Bullock, 32, arrived in New England on the ship "Elizabeth". His will was dated at Dorchester, Mass. on 25 May 1649 when he was about to return to England.
On 20 June 1635, Henry Bullock, age 40 and wife, Susan arrived with 3 children, Henry 8, Mary 6, and Thomas 2. He settled in Salem, Mass. No positive connection with Richard has been found with either of these men, but most of the original proprietors of Rehoboth came from either Dorchester or Salem. Rev. Samuel Newman who was the "real founder of Rehoboth" came to America in 1635 and resided for four years in Dorchester, then went to Weymouth, Mass. as Pastor. He remained there until the spring of 1644 when the majority of his church with others of Hingham Mass. migrated to the place that the Indians called Seekonk and to which Newman gave the name of Rehoboth, whose scriptural name means enlargement (Tilton, A History of Rehoboth, MA).
On August 4, 1647, Richard Bullock married Elizabeth Ingraham in Rehoboth. She is said to have been the daughter of Richard and Elizabeth (Wignall) Ingraham and a descendant of Sir Arthur Ingraham of Watertown, Mass. Elizabeth was born about 1629 and died at the age of 30 on January 7, 1659/60, shortly after the birth of her sixth child, Hopestill.
On July 21, 1660, Richard married Elizabeth Billington, daughter of Francis and Christian (Penn) Billington and grand-daughter of John Billington who arrived in New England on the Mayflower. The Billington family was described by Gov. William Bradford as "ye profanest family" and John Billington received the distinction of being the first man hanged in the Plymouth Colony for committing a murder.
Richard Bullock's home lot was along the road leading to the common opposite the lot of Rev. Samuel Newman. During his lifetime, Richard was given additional lands. He drew rights in the "Great (Seekonk) Plain " in 1644 and in 1647 he was allotted the rights of Nathan Pratt's land after Mr. Pratt left Rehoboth. In June 1653 he was one of 49 residents who were allowed to draw meadow lands and in 1658 he again shared in a drawing of lands in the northern part of the town. On 1 October 1661 he was given "soo much land at the watersyde, against the end of his lott as should be judged to be convenient to sell". In 1666, he also shared in the division of the Wannamoisett lands. He spent all of his life in Rehoboth. It has been widely accepted that he was in Newtown Long Island in 1656, but this was probably the Richard Bullock who was named as having a debt to our Richards estate - probably a relative, maybe a nephew. It could not have been his son, Richard who was only a baby when his father died.

He took the Oath of Fidelity in 1656. In 1662 the records show that he was appointed to serve on a committee regarding liquor and powder shipments and that on June 8, 1664 he was chosen to collect the "Assize" tax.
Richard Bullock was licensed to keep a ferry at Palmer's River on 1 March 1664 by the Plymouth Colony. This allowed him to ferry horses from Rehoboth across the Pawtucket (Blackstone) River to the Providence Plantation of Roger Williams . It appears that he already had a ferry and this allowed him to build a horse ferry in addition. He also was granted the right to sell liquor "to strangers and
passengers but not to town dwellers ."
It has been suggested that Richard was a member of the Baptist church of which the Rev. John Myles was pastor. We do know that shortly after Richard's death, several of his children were active in that church. As a respected citizen and a freeman, Richard almost certainly attended the Congregationalist Church of the Rev. Samuel Newman. Since the Bullock property was closer to Swansea and the church in Swansea was Baptist, the family may have attended it after Newman's death in 1663. Rehoboth town records show that in 1666, Richard protested at a town meeting that the church, rather than the citizens should choose the minister.
Richard died on 22 November, 1667. Books were listed among the items on his inventory along with a pewter spoon, arms & ammunition, and 3 blankets as the items with most value. Livestock consisted of "2 yearlings, 2 steers, one heefer, one horse and 6 cows". He had dairy vessels with beer barrel and was owed 23 shillings from Richard Bullock. This could not have been his son, Richard who was born shortly before he died, therefore, there must have been another Richard Bullock in New England at that time.

Cheri,
When I was in Rehoboth last month I did some research and discovered that in the marriage records Samuel Bullock's wife Thankful is listed as Thankful Reneff. I looked through the birth death and marriage records and the surname Rouse does not appear anywhere. The name Reneff does appear several times. You're not the first person that has said her name was Rouse but it does not appear to be correct according to the Vital Statistics of Rehoboth.

Dear Roy and Cheri, This is a followup to correspondence with Roy, who quoted you, Cheri, on the Bullock-Ingraham lines. First, I understand your lack of documentation. I started out that way, as did most genealogists. I also had to straighten out some people I had dying at the age of 130 because I crammed generations together. Now you have the birth of Elizabeth Ingraham in Barrowby, England, on 7-10-1625. Is that a birth or baptism/christening? Is that the Barrowby in Lincolnshire I just found on www.uk.multimap.com? I see the registers there date from 1538, and they are on the IGI from 1562, so that is a positive development. Multimap lists no other Barrowby. Is the date July 10 or Oct. 7th? In another part of your message you have July 10, but it always pays to doublecheck when people use numbers for months. If the record said the seventh month, for example, that would have likely been September at that time. Now if Richard Ingraham was the son of [Sir] Arthur Ingraham and Lady Jane Mallory why is this not widely published, as in the Ancestral Roots of Certain American Colonists? I could not find the Al Meyers page on the internet, or "Dave's site." I used Yahoo, but maybe another search engine would work. The name Richard Bullock and the date 1622 are too common to make his parentage Edward and Elizabeth (Wild) Bullock credible without serious documentation. I am assuming there is no evidence that he was indeed the one "born" 16 July 1622 (and note that no parish is mentioned). It would be really helpful if people would source their statements. However, the Barrowby parish records are copied at the Society of Genealogists, and can be inspected. I assume the originals are in Barrowby, since the Phillimore Atlas does not show them deposited anywhere. I do hope you saw the skepticism in my book, Ancestral Lines, which is now out in a third edition (1998). If you are not familiar with Weis' Ancestral Roots of Certain American Colonists, it is worth looking at in any library with a basic genealogical collection. Just make sure you have access to the seventh edition, the only one with that exact title. I would be glad to correspond on this further, and perhaps hire someone in London to look at the Barrowby register copy, or at least put it on my list of things to do personally. I spent a day at the New York Public Library last week, my first time there. Have been to the Society of Genealogists in London several times. All the best, Carl Boyer

General Notes: While visiting the New England Historic Genealogical Society in Boston in 1997, Gary Boyd Roberts, the well known genealogist and author assisted me in finding many of the ancestors of Nathan Sisson Barton. One of the books to which he referred me was The Descendants of James Cole of Plymouth 1633 by Ernest Byron Cole, 1908. Page 21 - 22 contains the following:

The earliest information obtained of James Cole, whose name stands at the head of the family in America, dates from 1616, when he was living at Highgate, a suburb of London, England. He is spoken of as a great lover of flowers, and it is probably due to the fact that he had became acquainted with and married Mary Lobel, a daughter of the noted botanist and physician, Mathieu Lobel.

(RCL note - See information near the end of these notes that disputes our James Cole having married Mary Lobel and being in Saco, Maine in 1632 prior to settling in Plymouth, MA.)

James Cole and Mary Lobel were married in 1624. Their first children, James and Hugh, were probably born in London. They came to Saco, Maine, in 1632, and the following year, 1633, located in Plymouth, Mass., where he was admitted as freeman the same year. He was known as a sailor. His name first appears upon the tax list of Plymouth in 1634; Jan. 2, 1636, he had a grant of ten acres of land; Jan 2, 1637, the court deeded him seven acres of land to belong to his dwelling house. Three acres of land probably included all the land on the south side of Leydon Street, from the corner of Warren Street to the westerly lines of the lot opposite the Universalist Church. His dwelling stood on the lot next below the Baptist Church. He was the first settler of and lived upon what is still known as "Cole's Hill," the first burial ground of the Pilgrims. This land probably included the ground upon which rests Plymouth Rock. In October, 1642, he had a further grant of land at the same place. In 1662 a grant of land at Sacconet Neck. In 1665 he had thirty acres of land on the west side of the Namuet River. He was surveyor of highways in the years 1641, 42, 51, and 52; was constable in 1641 and 1644. In 1637 his name appears upon a list of volunteers against the Pequot Indians.

Soon after his arrival at Plymouth he opened the first inn or public house of Plymouth, and one of if not the first, public house in New England. This house was kept as a public house by him and his son James until 1698.

The Complete Book of Emigrants, 1607-1776, contains the following: 30 June 1634.
Copy letter from James Cole at Ipswich, England, to his wife and children, father and mother, kinsman Thomas Cole and friend Nehemiah Wallington, relating his sad condition upon his departure from home. Copy letter from Nehemiah Wallington in London of 19 July 1634 to James Cole admonishing him to return home. Copy letter from James Cole dated Warwick 1634 to his father and mother complaining of his troubles. Copy letter from James Cole to his wife dated Warwick 29 November 1634. My Lord's decision is to employ me in New England. Refers to his brother Scott. Your son is well and like to do well and is continually with me. Copy letter from John Wallington (in London) to James Cole dated 6 June 1635 urging him to return home. Copy letter from same to James Cole advising him of proceedings taken against him in the Star Chamber. Had I been able to come to you in New England I would have seen you long before this. Copy letter from James Cole in Hertford, Connecticut, to Nehemiah Wallington (in London). I discern that God will force many of his out of Old England to furnish New England. Copy letter dated London 22 August 1650 from Nehemiah Wallington to James Cole in New England giving an account of the Civil War. My son Joseph is yet alive. I find myself so weak in your business that it grieves me I could do it no better. I know business needs trouble and grieves your wife. (BL: Sloane 922, pp.175,179,181,185,189,191,195,333)

In 1668 he sold to his son James the land down to and including the lot upon which stands the Baptist Church. In 1689 his son James sold it to William Shurtliffe.

The author (E.B. Cole) was unable to find any record of the death or his wife Mary.

In August 1997 there was a genealogy on the Internet at:

http://library.monterey.edu/merrill/family/follett/d0033/I1768.html

That traces John's descendants up to Prudence Cole and Rufus Barton plus much other related individuals.

Another account of the Cole family is contained in History of Swansea, page 154 - 156. It says:

John Cole, a resident of Highgate, a suburb of London, England in 1616, who married in 1624, Mary, daughter of the noted botanist and physician, Mathieu Lobel, who was born in Lille, a son of Jean de Lobell a distinguished lawyer. Mr. Cole and his wife, with their sons James and Hugh, who were probably born in London, came to New England in 1632, and were for a time at Saco, Maine. Mr. Cole located in Plymouth, Mass., as a sailor. His name appears on the tax list of Plymouth in 1634. He was the first settler of, and lived upon what is known as "Cole's Hill," the first burial ground of the Pilgrims. This land probably included the ground upon which rests Plymouth Rock. He had various grants of land. He was surveyor of highways in 1641 and 1644. He was a volunteer in 1637 against the Pequot Indians. Mr. Cole kept perhaps the first public house or in Plymouth, and one of the first in New England. This inn was opened soon after Mr. Cole's arrival at Plymouth, and it was continued by himself and son James respectively, until 1698. The children of Mr. Cole and his wife were: James, born in 1625; Hugh, in 1627, John, Nov. 21, 1637 in Plymouth, and Mary, in 1639.

Hi Roy,
I just finished copying out the article in NEHGS from "The Great Migration Begins" by Robert Charles Anderson, NEHGS 1995 Vol.1 p 420-424 and thought you might be interested in it. It concerns James Cole and disputes old information saying that our James Cole was married to Mary Lobel....From what you can see below, James Cole didn't appear to be a very educated man and probably had very little in common with the OTHER James Cole of Highgate who married Mary Lobel. Unfortunately in the past researchers lumped together all the information on the TWO James Coles and made them all fit one man.....

Roy, I can not remember if I sent you George Luther's response to my writing him about the Great Migration article where I said that the article made James Cole seem like he was from a different "class" than Mary Lobel would have been in...thereby making it seem more likely that he married Mary Tibbes, and not Mary Lobel, and that another James (more posh and educated) would have been in the Lobel class.... anyway here it is so you can read it....either way, it is very interesting....

George Luther writes: "True; but James must have had some standing in the community to be admitted as freeman (1633), granted a license for the first pub in the colony, and also in having the means to acquire 20 acres including Cole's Hill (the site of Plymouth Rock), the most prominent feature as you approach Plymouth by sea. During altercations with the Pequots the Pilgrims were losing citizens to sickness, and in an effort to keep the deaths secret they buried the bodies in the darkness of night at the top of Cole's Hill, the colony's first graveyard. He later acquired much greater acreage. I have read (and written) about James' legal troubles regarding his liquor business, and your assessment that he liked to tip the bottle is no doubt correct, but remember that his business was situated in a town highly charged with religious fervor and probably a good supply of teetotalers. His status as a surveyor, Indian fighter, and town constable further testify to his standing in the community. "

Cheri

In March 2000 "Timothy Cole" <timcole@colescorner.com> wrote me the following:

It's been established that this James Cole did not marry Mary Lobel. Sufficient proof exists that his wife was Marye Tibbes of Barnstaple, Devonshire, England. No proof has been found that this James Cole ever lived or landed in Saco, Maine -- that may have been another James Cole if one was ever there. No substantial proof of James Cole's parentage has been uncovered.

I asked Tim to be more specific and he responded with:

This is evidence that was not known nor available when E. B. Cole published his book in 1908. Contact Gary Boyd again and ask him to look at the recent NEGHS publication "The Great Migration Begins." The marriage of James of Plymouth to Mary deLobel has been refuted by newly published evidence from the original documents found in Barnstaple, Devonshire, and compare favorably with documents at Barnstable, Mass. This has been a significant finding and most Cole researchers are accepting it. I have some of the documentation at my World Connect site, "The Coles of Porter Co., Indiana" or do a search for Marye Tibbes and look for "Timcole" as the submitter. And, yes, I did read the documentation in all the sites still claiming Mary deLobel as the wife. One, perhaps yours, includes a letter from James (from the Colonies?) to his family in London about not being too happy about his situation. I'm interested in seeing the context of that letter and reading it as it was written. There is still the unsettling possibility that another James Cole, probably descended from the family that went to Enniskillen, may have married the deLobel girl and may have gone to Saco, Maine, even though no evidence of his arrival there has been uncovered, and may have returned to England shortly thereafter, leaving all of us trying to piece things together many years later.
Thank you for replying and giving me the chance to explain further. Pam Thompson, who is trying to correct passages and lines (and extend them further) for James Cole of Plymouth has been compiling as much of the evidence as she can. You may want to contact her Pamrthompson@aol.com .


(RCL note - Savage thought James Cole had lived in Saco. His text says: JAMES, Plymouth 1633, first occup. of the little hill, where
the early pilgrims had been bur. was that yr. at Saco, perhaps, as in Haz.
Coll. I. 326, or Folsom, 33, 125; by w. Mary, had James; Hugh, b. a
1632, bef. ment.; John; Mary, wh. m. John Almy. He kept an inn
from 1638 to 1660, and he was liv. in 1688, very aged.)

In any event, I have replaced Mary Lobel with Mary Tibbes in my database.

The following notes were imported from the Tim Cole gedcom file:
The Barnstaple records (Devon County, England) often spell Cole as Coale and Tibbes as Tybbes
There have been references that many Cole's have resided in the town of Ashreighney; its location was given on the Devon site ( http://www.devon-genealogy.org.uk/ ) as:

"Ashreigny or King's Ash parish includes the hamlets of Riddlecombe and Great Hayes, and is in the Torrington union, county court district, Southmolton petty sessional division, Northern division of the county, Barnstaple archdeaconry, Chulmleigh rural deanery, and North Tawton hundred. The parish had 786 inhabitants (403 males, 383 females) in 1871, living in 165 houses, on 5663 acres of land. J.G. Johnson, Esq., M.P. is the lord of the manor formerly belonging to the Reigny and other families, but part of the soil is held by Earl Portsmouth and a few smaller owners

Tim and Pam
We are going to Devon this coming July. It is my brother who has the book on the Cole family of Ashreigney. It is Charles H.B. Cole who wrote the book. He is a farmer in mid-Devon. I did talk to him on the phone when I was there last year. I am willing to try to find some things for you if I can.
I know that the last time I emailed Tim I gave him my web site where I go back on my line, but it is a GIF, and can take a while to load. I actually will be going to Broadclyst, 5 files north of Exeter, in Devon. My Great Grandfather left Ashreigney at the end of the last century. Perhaps a few emails between us and we can work out what we all want to know. I also need to re-look at what notes I have here. Derek Davidson (mother's maiden name is Cole)

"Barnstaple (Devon or Devonshire are equally good)is ceratinly within 25 miles of Ashreigney. The book written by a farmer who now lives near
Crediton starts with:
Thomas Cole ~1525-1604
John Cole probable son of Thomas, ~1555-1641
John Cole probale son of John, ~1585-1656

Ralph Snr 1672-1730 = Honor Short 1678-1718
Ann Cole -1673
?Abraham - 1758

I only wrote down my line. The book also has other 'registrations' of The Cole family. The author of the book is a farmer and did ask that I not publish his address too quickly. Especially this time of the year he is hay making, and these farmers are always workin long hours. How ever he managed to write his book I do not know!
My brother has the book. The book identifies Cole 'clans' of another couple of locations on north Devon, such as South Molten. Your James Cole thus be at the level of the 'probable sons'. If nothing else when I next go back to England I can check if there are any James that may have gone to sea.
I think the locations are close, but I do not know how we could make the connections. With this type of stuff one has to be patient. Either spend time in census/registry offices, or wait for someone else to do the work. One of the problems was that the registry office in Exeter *Capital city of Devon) was bombed during the last war.

Listed as "Freeman" in Plymouth in 1633.
... 1633, located in Plymouth, Mass., where he was admitted as freeman the same year. He was known as a sailor. His name appears upon the tax list of Plymouth in £634; Jan. 2, 1636, he had a grant of ten acres of land; Jan. 2, 1637, the court deeded him seven acres of land to belong to his dwelling house. Three acres of land probably included all the land on the south side of Leydon Street, from tbe corner of Warren Street to the westerly line of the lot opposite the Universalist Church. His dwelling stood on the lot next below the Baptist Church. He was the first settler of and lived upon what is still known as "Cole's Hill," the first burial ground of the Pilgrims. This land probably included the ground upon which rests Plymouth Rock. In September, 1641, he had a grant of fifty acres of land at Lakenham meadow. In October, 1642, he had a further grant of land at the same place. In £662 a grant of land at Sacconet Neck. In £665 he had thirty acres of land on the west side of the Namuet River. He was surveyor of highways in the years, £64l, 42, 5l, and 52; was constable in 1641 and I644. In 1637 his name appears upon a list of volunteers against the Pequot Indians.
Soon after his arrival at Plymouth he opened the ifrst inn or public house of plymouth, and one of it not the first, public house in New England. This house was kept as a public house by him and his son James until 1698.
In 1668 he sold to his son James the land down to and including the lot upon which stands the Baptist Church. In 1689 his son James sold it to William Shurtliffe.
I have been unable to find any record of the death of James Cole or his wife Mary."
---------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:
[This following is DISPUTED by recently found records in England but is included here]

The earliest information obtained of James Cole whose name stands at the head of the family in America, dates from 1616, when he was living at Highgate, a suburb of London, England. He is spoken of a great lover of flowers, ...
"...and it is probably due to this fact that he became acquainted with and married Mary Lobel, a daughter of the noted botanist and physician, Mathieu Lobel.
Mathieu Lobel was born in Lille in 1538. He was the son of Jean De Lobel, a distinguished lawyer. Mathieu was a physician at Montpelier, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland; he also practiced medicine in Antwerp, being attached as physician to William of Orange; from Antwerp he came to London, and became physician to James I. He was a great student of vegetable physiology, and was the author of a number of books upon medicinal plants.

Subject: Mary Lobel
"Before the recent information on the identity of James Cole's wife as Mary Tibbes surfaced, questions regarding her published identity as Mary de l'Obel were already being asked. In fact, it is not clear at all that a James Cole of London married a Mary de l'Obel.

The Oct 1961 issue of the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, pp. 255-256, contains McClure Meredith Howland's article, "English Background of Three N.E. Families," based in part on research by C.W. Brand, a Fellow of the Society of Genealogists, London. This article says:
------
Boyd's Marriage Index and the Publications of the Huguenot Society, London, have been examined for this marriage [of James Cole and Mary de Lobel] without success. The registers of the old parish of Stoke Newington, not far from Highgate, where there are several Huguenot entries, have been searched, but there is no mention of the name of Lobel. Also examined were the registers of the French church on Threadneedle Street, as well as those of St. Dionis Backchurch, London, and several Lobel entries were found. The following which have been translated from the French are
the most interesting:
Marriage (French Church)
1605 16 December, Jacques Coole (James Cole) native of Anuers, and Louye, daughter of Mestre Matias de Lobel, native also of Anuers.
Baptism (French Church)
1600 6 April. Mathyas Le Myre, son of Louye LeM. and of Marye de Lobell. Witness Mr. Mathyas de Lobell and my Ladye Cliffortt.
Burials (St. Dionis)
1609 21 May Mathias Lobell, stranger
1616 10 May Mr. Doctor Lobell, died in the parish of St. Michaells in Cornhill, was buried here in the Chancel.
It is obvious that the marriage of Jacques Coole and Louye de Lobel does not refer to the Plymouth settlers.... The "Mary de LObel," wife of Mathyas Le Myre, was probably the daughter of Lobel, the botanist, in view of her son's first name, "Mathyas," and the fact that Lobel was a witness.
The "Mr. Doctor Lobell" who died in 1616 was doubtless the botanist. The "Mathias Lobell stranger" who died in 1609 was probably a son or close relative.
There is a bare possibility that Lobel, the botanist, had a younger daughter also called Mary who married James Cole; or, more likely, she may have been the daughter of "Mathias Lobell stranger," and the botanists niece or granddaughter and perhaps a member of his household. However, until
evidence of this marriage is found, it remains in question.
------
Further information on Mary and her father Mathieu can be found in MATHIEU DE L'OBEL, 1538-1616, by Armand Louis (Ghent, 1980). Written in French, copies of pertinent pages were sent to me in 1991 by John Cole of Newport, RI.
One more point: I have not seen information about a James and Mary in Saco, ME--James yes, but not Mary. Perhaps I missed it. I do not think we can assume that the James who is found briefly in Saco records is either James of London or James of Plymouth. In fact, I highly doubt both of these
conjectures.

On 8 March 1670/1 John Sprague was fined for "highly misdemean[ing]" himself at the house of James Cole, including riding his mare into the parlor. This was probably the house of entertainment kept by James Cole junior, who began business shortly before 7 June 1670.

Tim,
Your web site has more information than I have. It appears to me that Mary Tibbs is probably James' wife. I'm pasting my notes below and you might find something to ad to your file: Information from " The Decendants of James Cole of Plymouth, 1633", by Ernest Byron Cole, The Grafton press of New York, 1908. Some of his work is based on information supplied by Miss Asenath Wilbur Cole of Warren, RI. She had spent some time collecting records of the first four generations and decendants of Hugh Cole, the second son of James Cole of Plymouth. Many of the records from which this data was secured have since been destroyed.
I am not sure James Cole was born in 1616 as Ernest claims he married Mary Lobel in 1624. It was claimed that earliest information obtained of James Cole dates from 1616 when he was living at Highgate.

First - William Cole of Eniskillen is no longer considered an ancestor of James Cole of Plymouth. Only a few early sources ever said that, as a matter of fact. Do you have access to the new "The Great Migration Begins, 1620-1633" written for the NEHGS by Robert Charles Anderson. James Cole came from Barnstaple, Devonshire and married Mary Tibbes.
That out of the way - My descent is from James' son Hugh - down to my Grandmother, Lucy May Cole Russell. Most of my line lived in Swansea. I own my grandmother's copy of EB Cole's book . All the stuff before the 1st generation (James) is interesting - and I never gave it credence, though the Old King Coel reference which I also have from another place, is kind of fun. EB Cole's first generation - with Mary Lobel and her possible ancestry has been suspect for awhile, and I was really happy to see The Great Migration Begins give a definitive answer, even if it removed Mathieu
d'Lobel from my line :-)

• Misc: 1998. Internet Queries
From the COLE-L Family Forum, RootsWeb, Pam Thompson Feb. 17, 2000:

"There is no evidence that James Cole the immigrant went first to Maine. This is the info in my manuscript:
"E.B. Cole, p. 21, says that James and his family "came to Saco, Maine, in 1632, and the following year, 1633, located in Plymouth, Mass." Only one other source mentions the Saco arrival. Savage, p. 427, says "James, Plymouth 1633 ... was that yr. at Saco, perhaps, as in Haz. Coll. I. 326, or Folsom, 33, 125." The sources Savage is referring to are Ebenezer Hazard's Collections and George Folsom's History of Saco and Biddeford. There is no record of a James Cole in Saco, ME, in 1633. In an article in the Oct 1885 issue of the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, "Court Records of the Province of Maine," p. 360, one of the earliest entries is 25 March 1636 listing James Cole (also Coale and Coall) as being fined five shillings for being drunk. He is listed again on 6 March 1637, p. 363: "James Cole is to pay the constable 20s for his paynes in goeing to Cascoe [a town about 30 miles north of Saco]." The article states that there are no records for the years before 1636. The James Cole in Saco is almost certainly a different man. James Cole is found in Plymouth Colony in 1634, was probably there previous to that time, and was definitely in Plymouth in 1637.

Hi Harry,

"This side of the pond" we have a legend that Old King Cole (of Colchester, Essex, England and of nursery rhyme fame) was the father of Helen (later known as Saint Helen, finder of the "True Cross"). Reputedly, Helen married Constantius Chlorus a highly-placed Roman official in Britain at that time (4th century AD) and their son eventually became the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great, in honour of whom Byzantium was renamed to Constantinople.

From the Internet:
"James Coale married Mary Tibbes in Barnstaple 8 [not 1] May 1625 --Note: apparently the May 1 date is entered in the IGI and is published in The Great Migration Begins, but the actual record, which I obtained in Exeter, says May 8.
"James, son of James Coale, was bapt. in Barnstaple 11 Feb 1626/7 Hugh, son of James Coales, was bapt. in Barnstaple 29 June 1628--this record is particularly hard to read "The previously published and oft-repeated information about James Cole being from London and marrying Mary Lobel was incorrect.

Subj: JAMES COLE'S WIFE
Hi Albert. It's been a long time since we talked about our common ancestor, James COLE of Plymouth. I just got some information today from Betty Harris of this board from THE GREAT MIGRATION BEGINS IMMIGRANTS TO NEW ENGLAND 1620-1633, Vol. I, A-F by Robert Charles Anderson, pub. by the Great Migration Study Project, New England Historic Genealogical Society, Boston 1995. I thought you might find this of interest so I'll post it for you.
James COLE by virtue of being in Plymouth by 1634 is said to have migrated in 1633. His origin is listed as Barnstaple, Devonshire, England. His information is on pp. 420-424. This book is hot off the presses.
On p. 422-3:
BIRTH: By about 1600 based on date of marriage
DEATH: After October 1678 (his son sold land as "James Cole Junior" [PCLR
4:226]). (Savage states that "he was living in 1688, very aged.")
MARRIAGE: Barnstaple, Devonshire, 1 May 1625 Mary TIBBES [Thomas Wainwright,
ed., Barnstaple Parish Register of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538 A.D.
to 1812 A.D. (Exeter, 1803), cited herein as Barnstaple PR, p. 21]; she died
after 7 March 1659/60 [PCR 3:181].
Children:
i. James, bp. Barnstaple, Devonshire 11 Feb 1626/7 [Barnstaple PR 68];
in Plymouth section of 1643 list of men able to bear arms [PCR 8:188];
m. (1) Plymouth 23 December 1652 Mary TILSON [PCR 8:14]; m. (2)
by Sept. 1698 Esther _____; m. (3) in 1700 or later Abigail ____.
[TAG, 67:243-5 discusses the wives and children of this man in
detail.]
ii. Hugh, bp. Barnstaple, Devonshire, 29 June 1628 [Barnstaple PR 70];
in Plymouth section of 1643 list of men able to bear arms [PCR 8:188];
m. Plymouth 8 January 1654[/5] Mary FOXWELL [PCR 8:72, 74, TAG 64:
139-41].
iii. John, b. say 1630, possibly the John COLE whose inventory was taken
at Portsmouth, R.I., 15 Dec. 1676 [Charles Henry Pope, The Plymouth
Scrap Book (Boston 1918), p. 122].
iv. Mary, b. say 1632; m. (1) by 1668 John ALMY [PCLR 3:326; Austin 238];
m. (2) by 28 June 1677 John POCOCKE [Austin 154, 238].

Then it says in his comments that James COLE of Saco was not part of this family. I just thought you'd be interested in this updated information and now you can be sure that Mary LOBEL was not his wife. I know I was glad to finally learn the true identity of Mrs. COLE as well as get the dates of
birth of their first two sons. I hope this is of interest as well to any other COLE descendants.

Hi Barbara!
BP>Norah, The Great Migration Begins, Vol. I by Robert Charles Anderson
BP>pub. 1995, lists the wife of James 1 COLE as Mary TIBBES.
Yippee! It's really great to finally have a wife's name next to our James COLE! At least now we have a surname, place, and some dates we can pursue!
BP>He also found the births of James 2 and Hugh 2:
Great!!!!!!
BP>At last it seems that Mary's identity has been satisfactorily settled.
And glad I am. I wonder where everyone got the idea James 1 was married to Mary Lobel then, I suppose it was because our James was confused with another of the same name?
BP>I don't recall now sending you COLE information, but I'm glad it helped you.
Tremendously helped and thank you again!
BP>Here's to a problem free, healthy New Year for you.
And for you too. :)

Barbara, this is Mary, and I apologize for not contacting you sooner. We did go to SLC, and I did go through many pages of the Barnstable parish records. My problem is that I have misfiled
the "To Type" folder which I had planned to do--and send you. But I can share some info now. The Barnstable book is very large and was extracted by Wainwright in late 1880s and printed some 20 years later. I checked the IGI, and I believe it is all on the IGI. However, there are clues when you can read the church register in the order in which each event occurred. As you probably know, almost 95% of the extant English parish records are now completed on the IGI. I didn't get to study my notes before they went astray. What I thought might be really helpful were the recorded death records which are not on the IGI. One thing bothers me. There was not another person named Hugh in the Cole or Tibbes family, or in any family there in that time. That's unusual. Although I haven't done too much English research, in other parishes that I have done, I've found patterns of names very predictable. I notice (on IGI) that there was a Hugh Cole of London which was probably the reason that James' parents were identified as James/Mary Lobell Cole by earlier researchers. There were not many entries on the Tibbes family of various spellings. They may have moved into Barnstable from elsewhere. If I can't find my notes, I'm going to do it over again next year at SLC. THose death records are important as it may indicate an earlier generation. I'm mad at myself for losing these notes.

However, I am not ready to concede until I examine the document and its source material . I have always suspected the James Cole of Highgate and the Jame Cole of Plymouth of not being the same person. James of Plymouth just seems too young to have known King James well enough to have received a charter of land, to have met and married the daughter of the King's physician, and to have held onto the land charter for a number of years before exercising the option. It seems more likely that James of Plymouth is one of the sons of James of Highgate, and that some of the other sons also migrated to the Colonies.
More, later, I hope!

From: Margaret Olson <olson@shout.net>
To: COLE-L@rootsweb.com
Subject: James COLE of Plymouth, MA
<snip>
James COLE's origins are given as Barnstaple, Devonshire. His marriage is given as 1 May 1625 to Mary Tibbes [ref Thomas Wainwright, ed. Barnstaple Parish Registers of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538 AD to 1812 AD (Exeter 1903)]. Mary died after Mar 1659/60 [Plymouth Colony
Records 3:181]. The births of sons James and Hugh are on pages 68 and 70 respectively of the Barnstaple Parish Registers.

Margaret: What is Lucy May Cole's line?
In 1995, a researcher told me about the Barnstaple discovery. He did not mention the Migration book, nor had I seen it. He implied that he had hired a researcher in England, who discovered this info. This was the first I'd heard of the Barnstaple connection, although for years I had disbelieved the Mary Lobel story and had intended to put a detailed proof in the book that Mary Lobel was not the wife of James Cole.
Coincidentally, I had a trip to England planned in August 1995, right after getting this info. I therefore visited the Devon Record Office in Exeter and got copies of the actual old entries for the marriage of James Cole and Mary Tibbes (also spelled Tibbs and Tybbs in the records) and various other records. They include the birth records for James and Hugh as well as data on Mary's family.
I took with me to Barnstaple the notes from the researcher who first sent me this info. He had transcribed the original records, which are very hard to read. This transcription allowed me to easily find the records and make copies of the pages.
James Coale married Mary Tibbes in Barnstaple 8 [not 1] May 1625
James, son of James Coale, was bapt. in Barnstaple 11 Feb 1626/7
Hugh, son of James Coales, was bapt. in Barnstaple 29 June 1628--this record is particularly hard to read.
Mary was baptised in Barnstaple on 15 June 1598, the daughter of John Tybbs
John Tibbs married Margarett Harris married in Barnstaple on 11 Oct 1593
They had 9 children (except for Mary's, I did not copy these records--these names and dates are from the researcher's notes):
Nychole (female) bapt. 29 Aug 1594
Julian bapt. 14 March 1597
Marye bapt 15 June 1598
Francis bapt 25 Jan 1600

William bapt. 14 Apr 1603
George bapt. 25 Sept 1604
Christian (female) bapt. 3 Aug 1607
Robert bapt 30 Apr 1609
Margaret was baptised in Barnstaple 11 May 1573, the daughter of Thomas Harris
Thomas Harrys married Alse Thorne in Barnstaple on 10 Nov 1572 (these old records are very hard to read). They had at least 8 children in Barnstaple (except for Margaret's, I did not copy these records--these names and dates are from the researcher's notes):
Margaret bapt. 11 May 1573
Agnes bapt. 15 Oct 1575

General Notes: Savage said: FOXWELL, JOHN, Scarborough, eldest son of Richard of the same, died probably before his father, leaving widow Deborah, 1677, to administer his estate. RICHARD, Salem, or Boston, probably came in the fleet with Winthrop desired admission as freeman 19 Oct. 1630, and 18 May following was sw. perhaps went home, or removed soon to Scituate, and may have been there prior, certainly was in 1634, having married Ann Shelley, a servant who came over that year as the church record of Roxbury proves; was one of the founders of the first church at Scituate, with Rev. John Lothrop, 8 Jan. 1635; but the children following are on record of Barnstable, Mary, born 17, baptised 30 Aug. 1636, who married 8 Jan. 1655, Hugh Cole; Martha, 24 Mar. baptised 22 Apr. 1638, married 9 May 1669, Samuel Bacon; and Ruth, 25 Mar. baptised 4 Apr. 1641; removed to Barnstable before the birth of last; there his son John was buried 21 Sept. 1646, and he died 1668, says Deane.

Richard married Ann Shelly on 14 Mar 1635 in Scituate, Plymouth, Massachusetts. Ann was born in 1612 in , , , England and died in 1668 in , , Massachusetts at age 56.

Children from this marriage were:

         iv.   John Foxwell was born about 1643 in Barnstable, Plymouth, Massachusetts and died on 21 Sep 1646 in Barnstable, Plymouth, Massachusetts about age 3. Ancestral File Number: FSSS-HG.


563. Ann Shelly, daughter of Robert Shelley and Unknown , was born in 1612 in , , , England and died in 1668 in , , Massachusetts at age 56. Ancestral File Number: 4TQQ-FD.

General Notes: I cannot recall where I found it, but I recall reading that Ann Shelly came to America as a bonded domestic. Her father's name came from the LDS Ancestral File.

Ann married Richard Foxwell on 14 Mar 1635 in Scituate, Plymouth, Massachusetts. Richard was born in 1610 in London, Middlessex, England, was christened in 1631 in Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts, died on 21 Sep 1643 in Barnstable, Plymouth, Massachusetts at age 33, and was buried in , , Massachusetts.

564. John Luther 27 died in 1644 in Probably, , Rhode Island.

General Notes: According to The Abridged Compendium of American Genealogy, page 940, John Luther came to America in 1634, settled at Tauton, Mass, 1637, governor of Rhode Island in 1642, and died 1644.

This doesn't totally agree with The Luther Family in America by Leslie L. Luther, 1976.

It was the unanimous conclusion of Joseph Gardner Luther and Sylvester M. Luther (early family historians who was the basis of most of the referenced text) that Capt. John Luther came from Dorset, reaching Massachusetts Bay Colony soon after Winthrop's arrival in 1630. One of his early descendants Wheaton Luther (1793-1846) wrote that John Luther came from Germany in the year 1635 in a Dutch
vessel which arrived in Boston.

In Representative Men and Old Families of Southeastern Massachusetts it states that Capt. John Luther came to Boston in one of two Dutch vessels that arrived there in 1635, bringing a number of Flemish mares, cattle, and some passengers; that Mr. Luther was a native of Germany and a direct descendant of the mother of Martin Luther.

The Luther text indicates he was probably born in Great Canford, Dorsetshire, England and died on board ship in Delaware Bay in late 1644, O.S. (1645, N.S.)

Winthrop notes the arrival of these Dutch ships, (4th mo. 4 d.), which brought 27 Flanders mares at 34 pounds a mare and 3 horses; 63 heifers at 12 pounds the beast; and 88 sheep at 50 sh. the sheep. They came from the Tessell (Texel) in five weeks three days, and lost not one beast or sheep. No mention is made of the passengers, and since emigration from England rather than the Low Countries, it is fair to suppose they carried only freight. If Capt. John did come on one of them it must have been as a sailor.

The most fanciful variant of the tradition occurs in the return made to Sylvester M. Luther by Pres. Flavel S. Luther in 1882. He wrote that tradition says his name was Wilhelm, that he came from Europe before 1650, married an Indian girl, and reached the age of 108 years.

The Luther text goes on for fourteen pages discussing John's life but there is no mention of him being governor of Rhode Island.

The Luther text indicated that Captain John Luther died aboard ship in Delaware Bay, late in 1644. Savage supports this in his discussion of Luther by his statement that a captain of a vessel trading to Delaware, from Boston, of this name, in 1644, was killed by the Indians in that river. See Winth. II. 203, 237.

History of Swansea Massachusetts 1667 - 1917, page 172 refers to Captain John Luther as an early settler of Taunton, Mass. The author says (in 1917) the name Luther has been a prominent one, and the family was numerous in the town created out of Ancient Rehoboth, and in territory near by since the early settlement there - since the coming of John Luther to Tauton, 1637, where he was one of the original proprietors. One family record sets forth that he was a native of Germany and came to Boston in 1635. Another account states that he was a native of Dorset, England, and came to America in 1636, and in 1639 was a purchaser of Taunton, Mass. He and some of his men were killed by the Indians in 1644, while on a trading voyage in Delaware Bay. And on May 22, 1646 the General Court decreed that the Widow Luther have the balance of her husband's wages according to sea custom, after allowing to the merchants what they had paid for the redemption of her son. This act no doubt had reference to John Luther.

John married Elizabeth .

Children from this marriage were:

282       i.   Samuel Luther (born in 1636 in Taunton, Bristol, Massachusetts - died on 20 Dec 1716 in Swansea, , Massachusetts)

         ii.   Hezekiah Luther was born in 1640 in Taunton, Bristol, Massachusetts, died on 28 Jul 1723 at age 83, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.


565. Elizabeth .

Elizabeth married John Luther . John died in 1644 in Probably, , Rhode Island.

566. Robert Abell,27 son of George Abell and Frances Cotton , was born in 1589 of Stapenhill, Derby Lockington, Leic, England, died on 20 Jun 1663 in Rehoboth, Bristol, Mass at age 74, and was buried on 20 Jun 1663. Ancestral File Number: CGHZ-ZV.

General Notes: The Genealogist, Volume 5, Number 2, Fall 1984 contains an article entitled ABEL - COTTON - MAINWARING: MATERNAL ANCESTRY OF ROBERT ABEL OF WEYMOUTH AND REHOBOTH, MASS. by Neil D. Thompson, F.A.S.G. It begins:

The standard history of the descendants of Robert Abell, immigrant prior to October 1630 to Massachusetts Bay and an early settler of Weymouth and Rehoboth, publishes a line of descent through his mother, Frances (Cotton) Abell, from Charlemagne and other notables. Donald Lines Jacobus, having pointed out several errors in this line, provides an alternative, concerning which he says:

The following line is well attested except that further detail is desirable for the three generations immediately preceding Robert Abel.

This article reports, in two sections, the results of the author's investigation made to provide that further detail which Jacobus believed to be desirable. The first section discusses the family of Richard Cotton of Combermere, County Chester, maternal grandfather of the immigrant. The second part summarizes four generations of the ancestry of Frances (Cotton) Abell, the immigrant's mother, and points out a dozen or more royal descents traced through her.

RCL has a photocopy of the complete article.

The Luther Family in America page 64-65 says Robert Abell came to America with the Winthrop Fleet, 1630; of Weymouth, Rehoboth, and Swansea, Mass. His father's will, dated Cantebury, Eng., Feb 7, 1631 - "I bequeath unto my second son, Robert, only a Twentie Shillings p. for his child's part in regard of the charges I have been at in placing him in a good trade in London which he hath made noe use of, and since in furnishing him for New England, where I hope he now is," m.c. 1638, Joannah _______. Through their son Caleb Abel they were ancestors to Grover Cleveland, President of the United States.

Savage discusses Robert and several of his children. I will include that discussion here:

ABELL, BENJAMIN, Norwich, 1670. CALEB, Dedham, 1665, may have been son of the preceding. Removed 1668, to Norwich, there married July 1669 Margaret, probably daughter of John Post of Saybrook, had a daughter born 1671, died soon, Samuel, Oct. 1672; Experience, Dec. 1674; Caleb, Apr. 1677; John, Dec. 1678; Theophilus, Nov. 1680; Joanna, Nov. 1683; Abigail, Mar. 1689; and Hannah, Oct. 1692. His wife died Nov. 1700, and he married 1701, Mary, widow of Stephen Loomer of New London, who survived him. He died 17 Aug. 1731. JOSHUA, Norwich, perhaps brother of the preceding. Married 1 Nov. 1677, Experience, daughter of Nehemiah Smith of New London, and perhaps had second wife, daughter of John Gager. PRESERVED, Rehoboth, 1668, had Dorothy b. 16 Nov.
1677; Joanna, 11 Jan. 1682; was lieutenant of the company under Samuel Gallop in the romantic expedition of Sir William Phips, 1690, against Quebec. ROBERT, Weymouth, came, probably in the fleet with Winthrop, desired admittance. 19 Oct. 1630, and was made freeman 18 May following had Abraham, buried 14 Nov. 1639; Mary, born 11 Apr. 1642; removed next year to Rehoboth, there died Aug. 1663, leaving widow and four more children beside Mary.

Robert married Joanne .

Children from this marriage were:

283       i.   Mary Abell (born in 1642 in Weymouth, , Massachusetts - died in Probably, Swansea, Massachusetts)

         ii.   Abraham Abell was born on 14 Nov 1639 in Weymouth, Norfolk, Massachusetts, died on 14 Nov 1639 in Weymouth, Plymouth Co., MA, and was buried on 14 Nov 1639 in Weymouth, Norfolk, Mass. Ancestral File Number: G7K4-B0.

        iii.   Preserved Abell Lieutenant was born in 1644 in Rehoboth, Bristol, Massachusetts, died on 18 Aug 1724 in Rehoboth, Bristol, MA at age 80, and was buried in Newman Cemetery. Ancestral File Number: BGR9-BM.

567. Joanne . Ancestral File Number: CGJ0-00.

Joanne married Robert Abell . Robert was born in 1589 of Stapenhill, Derby Lockington, Leic, England, died on 20 Jun 1663 in Rehoboth, Bristol, Mass at age 74, and was buried on 20 Jun 1663.

568. Robert Millard, son of John Millard and Unknown , was born about 1632 in Probably, , England, died on 16 Mar 1699 in Rehoboth, Bristol, Massachusetts about age 67, and was buried in Kickemuit Cem, Warren, Rhode Island.

General Notes: Like his father Robert Millard was a tanner at Rehoboth. In 1668 he was one of those who received lots in the North Purchase meadow (later Attleboro); and in 1689 he was listed among the Inhabitants and Proprietors of Rehoboth. In addition to the lands he had by propriety, Robert bought land at Palmer River from Anthony Perry, John Fitch and Joseph Peck and salt marsh in Swansea from Peter Hunt.

His name is included in various Rehoboth tax lists from 1671 to 1678, and on 26 Jan. 1676/77, "An account of the charges that several Persons have been at relating to the late Warr" (King Philip's War) shows Rob Miller -- £5.17.06". The Massachusetts towns were then required to equip and provision their own militiamen, and the money listed in this account was probably used for this purpose. Besides this financial contribution to the war effort, Robert Millard served at the Falls Fight under Capt. William Turner (RCL - Lillis Turner's great grandfather.)

Although Robert remained throughout his life a resident of Rehoboth, on 19 May 1685 he owned land in New Meadow Neck in Swansea (between Ruben's River and Warren River) and was listed as one of the proprietors of Sowams -- an ancient designation for the area which is now Barrington and Warren, R.I. including parts of Swansea, Seekonk and East Providence. Similarly the name of Robert Millart was listed on 23 July 1689 among "the several persons that live ... (torn) ..." in Swansea. New Meadow Neck was part of Swansea from the organization of that town in 1663 until it was set off to Barrington in 1717.

The will of Robert Millard of Rehoboth, Tanner, dated 11 March 1698/9, proved 29 March 1699, bequeathed to sons Solomon and Ephraim, dwelling house, barn and land belonging thereto, upland at Palmer River, and fifty pounds commange; to son Nathaniel, ten acres on Rocky River; to son Nehemiah, fifty acres "he now lives upon"; to son Robert, fifty acres at the northside of Rehoboth. To each son he gave in addition a piece of salt meadow in New Meadow. He bequeathed further to his grandsons, John and Richard Bragg, fifty acres of the northside to each; to daughter Elizabeth, a cow; to daughters Mary and Experience, ten pounds each; and to wife Elizabeth, all household goods, living space and her maintenance at the expense of the sons Solomon and Ephraim, who were designated executors. Witnesses: Timothy Blake, Thomas Bowen.

General Notes: East Hampton History says the first Hedges in East Hampton is thought to have come from Maidstone in Kent, England. The name still appears regularly in the Kent Messenger newspaper published in Maidstone; and the name is still represented here. Kentish records going back for centuries spell the name variously, Hedges, Hedge, Hodge, or Hodges.

Judge Henry P. Hedges, 19th century East Hampton historian, considered William Hodges who settled Taunton, Mass, in 1643, the same man who arrived in East Hampton by 1650 by way of Southampton and whose name was spelled Hedges here.

East Hampton History indicates William Hedges was there in 1650 immediately after the original nine settlers.

William Hedges was granted land in 1652 which remained in the family until 1923. The Hedges Inn, built about 1770 on the site of an earlier house, is located on property described in the 1652 grant as being on the "Great Plaine, more or less bounded with the hie way South, the litell Pond West, and the hie way North and John Mulford East."

The Suffolk County "Portrait and Biographical Record" of 1896 says that Hedges men have been largely farmers and with few exceptions have made a signal success of it; also they are notable for longevity, averaging 85 years with near-centenarians not uncommon.

It may be added that they often exchanged the plow for the whaling-irons. A Hedges (Tristram or William, the old records are dim and historians say the given names may be either; it was probably William) in March 1644, was named a member of the first organized whaling company in America. Forty-four men banded together at Southampton to take care of the valuable right whales off the beach on eastern Long Island. 11

William married Rose .

Children from this marriage were:

522       i.   Stephen Hedges (born in 1634-1635 - died on 7 Jul 1734)

         ii.   Isaac Hedges was born in 1637 and died in 1676 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York at age 39.

1046. John Stratton,11 son of William Stratton and Unknown , was christened on 14 Aug 1621 in London, Middlessex, England 11 and died in 1685 11 at age 64.

General Notes: East Hampton History, 1953, says John Stratton came here first; he is listed as one of the first "nine men." About a year later he was joined by his brother Richard. Richard was in Southampton according to Howell's History of Southampton, but there is no record of his having lived there. He probably returned to England where his father William Stratton died in Tenterden, County Kent, about 1647. Upon his return to America, John probably came directly to East Hampton.

John Stratton was one of the founders of East Hampton, a prominent citizen and man of considerable property. He was baptized Aug. 14, 1621 in London (parish of St. Leonard, in Eastcheap), the third son of William and Elizabeth Stratton first left Tenterden, in County Kent, England for America is not known; but he was twenty eight when he settled in East Hampton, where his brother Richard joined him within the year. He married Sarah, whose surname is unknown before 1645, and died early in 1685.

Book of Strattons, Volume I, page 118, contains the full text of John Stratton's will. It is nearly four pages long, so I will not include it here. John's will was dated August 30, 1684, and was proved before the Court of Sessions held in Southampton, March 16, 1685. 11

General Notes: East Hampton History, 1953, contains the following genealogy for Mulford:

According to some authorities, the Mulford family of East Hampton originated in the village of South Molton, Devonshire, England, where the name is also spelled Molford. Others are equally positive that the two brothers John and William Mulford who were among the first settlers here, were the sons of Thomas and Sarah Southcott Mulford of Maidstone in Kent. At a recent date there were Mulfords still living in both localities...

The two brothers came to Southampton, L.I. in 1643 from Salem, Mass. According to p. 29, Vol. 1 of the Southampton Town Records, John Mulford was granted two acres of land there on May 28, 1643 and on p. 55 it is recorded he sold his house in Southampton on Feb. 8, 1648, and in that or the following year was one of the nine persons who settled East Hampton; his younger brother William soon followed him there. The name of John Mulford appears many times in the council minutes of Connecticut, of which Colony Eastern Long Island became a part. He was commissioned a Judge in 1674. In Town affairs, keeping peace with the Indians, and representing the eastern towns in Hartford, and afterward in New York, he was prominent until his death in 1686.

When the eastern end of Long Island was first settled, a patent on certain lands was issued to the colonists direct by the reigning King of England; and under that charter the colonists instituted a government; the first Republic on American soil, it might be called. The chief magistrate was constituted the common court. A second court was constituted by a jury of twelve freeholders, and a third, the highest judiciary, was a general court, presided over by the magistrate, but in which the whole body of freeholders was constituted a jury. From 1650 to 1654, the name of John Mulford, and his only, appears as chief magistrate of this little republic, which had full treaty power with the Indians.

The name of John's first wife is unknown. He married 2nd Mrs. Fridesweide Osborn, widow of William Osborn of Salem, Mass. 11

John married.

1066. Ananias Conklin,11 son of William Conkling and Ruth Hedges , was born in 1610 in Nottingham C'nty, Not'shire, England, 11 died on 1 Oct 1657 in East Hampton, Suffolk, New York 11 at age 47, and was buried in 1657 in Old So.End, , Burying Ground. 11 Ancestral File Number: 46XT-NB.

General Notes: According to the Conklin genealogy in East Hampton History, the first Conklin or Conkling (the name is spelled both ways) to settle in East Hampton was Ananias, born in Nottinghamshire, England about 1600. He came to Salem, Mass. in the 1630's with his brother John, perhaps there were other brothers, but certainly John was there. Ananias Conkling is recorded as a member of the First Church in Salem in 1639. The brothers were glass-makers by trade. They were first to manufacture window glass and bottles in New England. They were granted house lots in Salem. Ananias was granted, 1638, a ten-acre plot for a glass factory; this was still known, long afterward, as "Glass House Field." Ananias was made a freeman of Salem on May 18, 1642.

They left New England for Long Island probably late in 1649, John founding a family in Southold, later moving to Huntington about 1660. Ananias obtained an allotment of land in East Hampton, settling here about 1650. Jeremiah, oldest son of Ananias, was one of the first four settlers of Amagansett shortly after 1690. The house he built there is still standing, and was sold 1950 to Mrs. Donald Lamb. Amagansett has been called, facetiously, "Conklinville."

Historians will differ on some points, after 300 years. Chauncey L. Ditmars, Babylon Town Historian, wrote in 1936 about Huntington Conklins, calling the first settler of that name there "Robert." Frank J. Conkling, writing in 1894, called the first Conklin in Huntington "John." Still another genealogist, Joseph I. Conklin, Jr. stated that there was a third brother named Cornelius who remained in Salem, died there in 1667 leaving a widow who later married Robert Starr.

Descendants and Ancesters of William Concklyne/Conklin

The first Conklin or Conkling (the name is spelled both ways) to settle in East Hampton was Ananias, born in Norringhamshire, Eng about 1600. He came to Salem, Ma in the 1630's with his brother John, perhaps there were other brothers, but certainly John was there. Ananias Conkling is recorded as a member of the First Church in Salem in 1639. The brothers were glass-makers by trade. They were first to manufacture window glass and bottles in New England. They were granted house lots in Salem. Ananias was granted, 1638, a ten-acre plot for a glass factory; they were still know, long afterward, as "Glass House Field". Ananias was made a freeman of Salem on 18 May 1642.
They left New England for Long Island probably late in 1649, John founding a family in Southold, later moving to Huntington about 1660. Ananias obtained an allotment of land in East Hampton, settleing here about 1650. Jeremiah, oldest son of Ananias, was one of the first four settlers of Anagansett shortly after 1690. The house he built there is still standing and was sold 1950 to Mrs. Donald Lam. Anagansett has been called, facetiouly, "Conklinville".
Historians will differ on some points, after 300 years. Chauncey L Ditmars, Babylon Town Historian, wrote in 1936 about the Huntington Conklins, calling the first settler of that name there "Robert". Frank J Conkling, writing in 1894, called the first Conklin in Huntington "John". Still another genealogist, Joseph Conklin Jr stated that there was a third brother named Cornelius who remained in Salem, died there in 1667 leaving a widow who later married Robert Starr.
Ananias Conklin is thought to have owned property later C P B Jefferys and now divided by Jefferys Lane. The book "Lineal Ancestors of Susan (Mulford) Cory, " Vol 3, part 1, page 49 states that Esther, first wife of Capt Samuel Mulford, was propably dau of Ananias Conkling by his third wife, whom he married when she was the widow of Robert Rose; and that the dau was about 4 years old. Since he had a dau Hester, only about six years old when he died, who is thought to have married George Miller,
that seems unlikely. The writer has no proof of any marriage but the first, but there may have been others.
Annanias worked as a glassmaker in King Seinford, Stafford,England when he married Mary Lauder/Lavender, a spinster of St. Peter's Parish in Nottingham, England. the marriage is recorded in that church on 23 Feb 1631. Ther first son Jeremiah was born in 1634. Between 1634 and 1636 Ananias, his brother John, and their families came to America and settled in Salem, Ma. It is believed that Mary Lauder died in Salem (now Peabody), although her grace has not been located. Her death was probably between 1638 and 1639 after the births of Cornelius and Benjamin but before Ananias's marriage to Susan in 1639. Ananias and John were granted house lots in Salem in June 1638.
The following info taken from various books on early American glass. In 1638 Lawrence Southwick, A Quaker, and Obadiah Holmes formed a partnership to build the first glass factory in New England with ananias and John Conkling, practical glassmakers. Each were granted land adjoining their homes for the glass house. This land was located on the original road from Salem to Boston, and is now Abbott Street, a residential secition in Peabody. In the records of the Mass. Bay Colony, it says that the town of Salem lent the men 30 pounds for the factory to be repaid if the factory succeeded and when they were able. A descendent of Southwich was quoted as saying that bottles were made in lifht and dk green, blue and brown glass. Also, earthenware and "bull's eyes" for windows and doors were made. No samples of the work have been positively identified.
In 1639 Ananias married Susan, a member of the First Church of Salem. On 18 May 1642, John and Ananias were made freedmen of Salem and received more land. About that time they were also made freedmen of what is now Cambridge. In Vol II of Mass Bay Colony , under Oct 1645, it states that Ananias and John petitioned the General Court for a settlement with the undertakers of the factory, Holmes and Southwick. They said the works had been neglected for three years and they they had not been paid. It was at this time that Quakers were being harassed and persecuted, among them, Southwick. Ananias and John then requested a release from the agreement in order to seek work elsewhere. About 1649, Ananias and John with their families moved south and settle in Southhold, N.Y. "Southhold Town Records" Dec 1652 states the location of land holding of Ananias in Southold. "Whitaker's Southhold" shows a map of the holdings. In 1650, Ananias obtained an allotment of land in E Hampton. He shared the meadow on the N side of Hook Pond with Lion Gardiner, Thomas Charfield and William Hedges. In 4 Feb 1656, Ananias and Lion were chosen as chimney inspectors. While in E Hampton, Ananias married Dorothy. Lion disapproved of the marriage of Mary to Meremiah. He is said to have commented that the Conklings were bottlers from Nottinghamshire and that they were farmers and handymen without large estates. Ananias died in 1657 probably in E Hampton. He is presumed to be buried in Old South End Burial Ground but no stone has been found.

Hi Roy,
Just wanted to mention something about your following entry: **************** Richard INGRAHAM

BIRTH: 1600, Of Rehoboth,Bristol,Massachusetts
CHRISTENING: Rehobeth,,MA
DEATH: 4 APR 1628, Northampton,Hampshire,England

REFERENCE: 1P8W-3J

Family 1: Elizabeth WIGNALL

MARRIAGE: 4 APR 1628, Rehoboth,Bristol,Mass ********************** Northampton is in MASSACHUSETTS and you have Richard dying on his wedding day...

I have Richard dying in Northampton in August,1683.

I found the following in 1989:

Information from "Ancestral Lines" by C. Boyer, and LDS records.
"Ancestral Lines" says:

Ingraham

As explained below there is some doubt whether there was only one Richard Ingraham in New England in the seventeenth century.
1. Richard INGRAHAM, born about 1595, perhaps died in Northampton, Massachusetts Bay, in August 1683. That Richard Ingraham of Rehoboth, Plymouth Colony, and the man of the same name in Northampton from 1668 to 1683 are one and the same is open to question [Nichols, TAG, 21:190-191].
The name of the wife of Richard Ingraham of Rehoboth is not known. He may be the one who married (secondly, if so) Mrs. Joan (Rockwell) Baker, widow of Jeffrey Baker of Windsor Connecticut [Frost's Davol-Willits, 104-105].
He came to New England about 1640 and is recorded in Rehoboth land records as early as 1643. If the same man, he moved to Northampton in 1668.
Children listed in notes by Lois M. Hudgens:
i. William
ii. Jarrett
iii. Elizabeth, b. 10 July 1625; i .[d.] Rehoboth 7 July 1659; m. there 4 August 1647
Richard Bullock.

Since then I have come across Elizabeth Wignall's information... I believe that Richard and Elizabeth were officially married AFTER the birth of Elizabeth Ingraham (7-10-1625 in Barrowby, England)....

I also believe that they had a daughter Joanna born abt 1632/33, and possibly Abigail b. abt 1637 and a son John b abt 1642.

Hope you don't mind the corrections....

Hi Roy,

I don't know how much you have on Richard Ingraham....
I have Richard Ingraham being the son of Arthur Ingraham and Lady Jane Mallory. Arthur is the son of Arthur Ingraham Sr. and Eleanor Slingsby.
Eleanor is the daughter of Henry Slingsby and Francis Vavasour. Henry is the son of Sir Francis Slingsby and Mary Percy. NOW you hit the Percy line!!!! and that gets you all sorts of royalty!!! this line is huge--you'll LOVE it!!! Once you hit English royalty the thing explodes into royalty from just about every Europen country. Al Meyer has all this stuff on his website, and my cousin Dave Lehman does too. Here are their addresses....

http://www.ezonline.com/aem/gen/d0021/g0000066.htm#I14102 (this is Richard Ingraham's page -- Al Meyers....go from there...Al has done tons of research, going to Europe and such....I feel very confident in his information)

http://www.lightlink.com/dlehman/ (this is Dave's site--most of it taken from Al's site, so scan down the left hand column and hit Ingraham, then click on Slingsby and then Percy and find Mary as #12 and so forth).

I ended up picking up 4 THOUSAND more direct ancestors once I hit this line....

I descend from Richard Ingraham's daughter Elizabeth who married Richard Bullock...then through their daughter Mary who married Richard Haile, through their daughter Elizabeth who married Jonathan Hill III.......

Hope this info helps.... Yep, LDS is always very suspect....

1136. John Millard was born in , , , England and was buried on 18 Apr 1680 in Rehoboth, Bristol, Massachusetts.

General Notes: The Detroit Society for Genealogical Research Magazine, Volumes 24, 25, and 26 serialized an article entitled THE MILLARDS OF REHOBOTH, MASSACHUSETTS, by Frances Davis McTeer of Detroit, Mich, and Frederick C. Warner of North Amherst, Mass. The following was abstracted from this article.

The early town records of Rehoboth, Massachusetts contains the name of Millard, Millerd and Miller used interchangeably -- according to the inclination of the scribe rather than as an indication to identify any one family or individual. Moreover all pre-Revolutionary inhabitants listed in the town's published vital records under any of these three names are found to have been descendants of the John Miller Sr. who was a proprietor of Rehoboth in 1643.

The authors point out that no comprehensive history of the Rehoboth Millards in all its ramifications has ever been published. They do mention that article entitled "The Millard Ancestry of President Millard Fillmore", written by Franklin H. Giddings and published in 1916 in Vol. 47 (pp. 245-251) of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, deserves the thoughtful consideration of anyone interested in this family.

From its founding as "Seaconk" in 1643 until its annexation to the Colony of Massachusetts Bay in 1692, the area between Taunton and the Providence River (later designated as Rehoboth) was legally a part of Plymouth Colony.

During more than four decades John Millard Sr. was a taxpayer and landowner, identified with the community of Rehoboth. As early as 1643 he was referred to as a proprietor and named seventeenth in the list of estates. Thereafter his name appears in succeeding years in connection with land allotment in "the woodland between plain and town" (1644), "the great plain beginning on the westside" (1645), the new meadow (1646), and the meadows on the northside of the town (1658). In 1648 he was "Servayer for the Hyewayes for Rehoboth" and constable in 1672. The town assessment of 22 Dec. 1657 list John Miller Sr., together with his two sons, John Jr. and Robert, and the following year were among those who drew lots for the "meadow lands in the North Purchase" (now Attleboro, Mass.).

In addition to these dates from Rehoboth and from Plymouth Colony records, some further information on John Millard Sr. is found in the estate settlement of his "cousin" Thomas Millard of Boston. Cousin was a somewhat broader term in the seventeenth century than it is today, the exact relationship between the two men is not indicated in the records. Thomas came to New England in 1637 and settled in Boston, where on 7 Sept. 1639 he was designated a husbandmand and allowed "a great Lott at Muddy River for 15 heads". Through the years he evidently kept in touch with John of Rehoboth; so in 1669, when Thomas was taken sick and died suddenly before he could make a will, his friends sent word to John and the latter came at once to Boston, even in the middle of winter.

At a hearing in Suffolk County Probate Court, on 4 Feb. 1669/70, several friends and neighbors of the deceased Thomas Millard testified as to his wishes regarding his estate: "He would give ... his land at Centry Hill ...
to his kinsman at Seaconk who brought up at his father's house"; "he intended cousin Miller should have good part of his estate ... because 'I have no other kindred in the country nor certainly do know that any other is alive'"

The estate referred to in this testimony consisted principally of two lots in Boston. One of these, described in the inventory as "a small parcel of land lying on the side of Century Hill and fronting the Common", was in fact almost the whole of the lot upon which the State House now stands, a half acre of which was Millard's by allotment and an additional acre bought of Zaccheus Bosworth in 1651. Unfortunately the article goes on to describe an heir, Alice Swift and a last will and testament which later materialized. Alice was apparently Thomas' sister and designated exectrix of the will which was written before Thomas left England in 1637. On 23 June 1673 John Millard quitclaimed the property in consideration for all the household goods and movables and money that Thomas died possessed of and twenty pounds in money additional. RCL - so much for deathbed testaments!

The last appearance of John Millard Sr. in the Plymouth Colony records is his acknowledgment on 30 June 1684 of the deed to his son Robert. On 7 Feb. 1689 in a List of Inhabitants and Proprietors of the Towne of Rehoboth the name of John Millard is conspicuously absent, though his family is represented by Sam'l Millerd Senr, Sam'l Millerd Junr, Robert Millerd Senr, Joseph Millerd and Benjamin Millerd. It is therefore presumed that John Sr. had died sometime between these two listing dates.

John married.

Children from this marriage were:

568       i.   Robert Millard (born about 1632 in Probably, , England - died on 16 Mar 1699 in Rehoboth, Bristol, Massachusetts)

         ii.   John Millard was born about 1636 in Probably, , England and was buried on 5 Jun 1684 in Rehoboth, Bristol, Massachusetts.

1139. Wright .

Wright married William Sabin .

1424. John Jr Kingsley,20,52 son of John (Kinniesley) Kingsley and Katharine Butler , was born on 7 Sep 1614 in Hampshire, England, died on 6 Jan 1678 in Rehoboth, Bristol County, MA at age 63, and was buried on 9 Jan 1678 in Rehoboth Bristol MA.

General Notes: Known as "Kingsley Lore", the origin of the family and the surname Kingsley started when William the Conqueror, the Norman King of England was succeeded by his third son, William the Second also known as "Rufus the Red King" who ruled England between 1087-1100 AD. Early in his reign he suffered a revolt of his Barons. Tradition says he went hunting in New Forest or Vale Royal one day and became separated from his companions and attendants. He became lost and wandered aimlessly through the forest and glades. Towards the eve of night he saw a light beaming from a forester's cabin. He approached the cabin and, without making himself known to the forester, the forester offered him a night's shelter. The forester by name of Ranulphus slaughtered a young goat and his wife prepared a savory meal. The King was refreshed by the evening meal and was offered a humble couch in which he slept that night, and in the morning partook of another bounteous repast. In the bright of day he discovered he was in his own lea. He was so delighted with the forester's hospitality that he bestowed the whole of that portion of his domain known as the King's lea, "Kyngesleigh". The forester became known as Sir Ranulphus de Kyngesleigh. Later the family crest contained a Baron's Crown surmounted by a goat's head. Some drawings and descriptions of the coat of arms can be seen in the book, "Kingsley Family of America" by William Arthur Kingsley.

The following notes courtesy of Peter Blackwell, posted on Kingsley GenForum 2/16/00 at http://genforum.genealogy.com/kingsley/messages/246.html:

Among the people who came to Plymouth in 1630 were two brothers, John and Stephen Kingsley, who came from Hampshire, England. In 1635, John Kingsley left Plymouth and moved north to Dorchester in the developing Boston area with a friend of Cotton Mather. He was followed by Stephen who by 1640 was the owner of a valuable property in the Braintree area. There he became a Court Deputy in Braintree and Milton from 1650 to 1666 and was also trustee of estates until his death in 1673. His family was to go on to found several towns in the Connecticut area.

John, along with seven others was a pillar of a new church founded on August 23, 1636 and was among the last survivors.

John Kingsley acquired the first grant of land in Taunton, MA area in 1645 and relocated there. The next year he became a shareholder in Great Lots (?). Three years later he moved to Rehoboth in Bristol County, MA.

The area around Rehoboth would eventually witness "King Philip's War".
The first generation of settlers who had worked out an uneasy alliance with Massasoit, chief of the Wampanoag Indians, were now replaced by people who wanted to expand their opportunities for development. The culture of the Indians differed greatly to that of the settlers in regards to the use of the land. A continuing problem was the trampling of Native cornfields by the colonists' livestock. While the colonists were legally responsible for the damage, such laws were difficult to enforce in remote areas such as Rehoboth and Taunton. Increased competition for these resources of land for planting, hunting and fishing caused much friction between the two groups.

In 1662, in an arrogant attempt to exert control, the Plymouth Court summoned Wampanoag leader, Wamsutta, son of Massasoit, to Plymouth. Major Josiah Winslow, with a small force of men, took Wamsutta at gunpoint. Soon after questioning, Wamsutta became ill and died. His death greatly angered the Wampanoag.

Wamsutta's brother, Metacom (also called Philip) succeeded him. Plymouth's continued unyielding policy toward Native leaders, as well as the events surrounding the murder of Sassamon, a liaison between the two groups, caused the breakdown in relations that led to war.

In 1675, hostilities broke out in the town of Swansea, and the war spread as far north as New Hampshire, and as far southwest as Connecticut. Not all the native peoples, however, sided with Philip. Most natives who had converted to Christianity fought with the English or remained neutral. The English, however, did not always trust these converts and interned many of them in camps or outlying islands.

Native soldiers fighting on the side of the colonists helped turn the tide of the war, which ended in 1676 when Philip was killed by a Wampanoag fighting with Captain Benjamin Church in the Great Swamp of southern Rhode Island.

The strain connected with the difficult relationships with the Indians over almost a thirty year period ending with the death of Philip caused John's health to suffer and he asked for relief in that year. He moved to Bristol, Rhode Island and died in 1678.

Kingsley Genealogy by Leroy Brown, M. D. St. Paul, Minn., 1907, available online at GenealogyLibrary.com contains the following:

JOHN KINGSLEY

In Vol. VI American Ancestry on page 207, we find the following: "John Kingsley of Dorchester, Mass., born at Hampshire, Eng., emigrated from there to Taunton, Mass., where he was one of the original purchasers. Remopved to Dorchester 1635. His ancestors spelled the name Kyngesley and bore these arms: Vert, a cross engrailed emine, chrest in a ducal coronet gules a goat head argent. Descended from Randulphus de Kyngesleigh of Chester 1120."

In the history of Dorchester, Mass. By the Committee of the antiquarian and Historical Society (Page 125) we also find the following: "John Kinsley or Kingsley was here as early as 1635. He was a grantee of land in 1635 and one of the original signers of the covenant in 1636 and a freeman in 1651. He had a son named Eldad born in Dorchester in 1638 and a daughter, Renewed, born Jan. 19, 1644. He had a son Enos who went to Northampton and a daughter who married Samuel Jones, son of Richard Jones. John Kingsley married a daughter of William Daniels of Milton and lived there in 1670.

From the vital statistics of Rehoboth, Mass., where he lived during the later years of his life, we learn that John Kingsley was buried Jan 6, 1678. Also that Alice the wife of John Kingsley was buried Jan. 4, 1673.

He was one of the seven original members who organized the Church at Dorchester in 1636 and signed the Covenant. Rev. Richard Mather the grandfather of Cotton Mather was the first pastor under the covenant. Kingsley was the last of the seven to survive.

He was a man of strong religious convictions and was obliged to leave England on account of his religious principles.

The first letter in the appendix gives us an insight into the character of the man. It is taken from the Public Records of the Colony of Conn. Vol. covering Records from 1665 to 1678. Pages 445 to 447.

Following is an extract from the Atlas of Portage Co. Ohio in connection with the history of Walcott Chafee who married Abigail Kingsley, a descendant of John Kingsley. "They were members of the colony of New Plymouth and arrived in 1630, the first bearing the name in this country being John Kingsley junior. The family name was continued in the person of Eldad who had a son John, etc."

Savage says: JOHN, Dorchester 1635, came prob. with some friend of Mather, and was here bef. him; at least was one of the seven pillars on format. of the new ch. for him, 23 Aug. 1636, and was the last surviv.; had Freedom; Eldad.b. 1638; Enos; Edward; and Renewal, 19 Mar. 1644; rem. to Rehoboth, aft. 1648, when he was in office, and 1658; there liv. and suffer. the Ind. hostil. of wh. in a letter of supplicat. for relief, under date of 5 May 1676, most sad pict. is giv.

General Notes: A family history of Richard Mowry of Uxbridge, Mass. An account of his ancestors and his descendants. Bibliographic Information: Mowry, William A. A Family History, Richard Mowry. Providence: Sidney S. Rider, 1878, available online at GenealogyLibrary.com contains the following:

In the records of Boston may be found the following: "Eighteen May, 1631, names of such as desire to be made freemen, [among them] Roger Mawry, Roger Williams." Soon after this without waiting to accept the duties and privileges of "ffreemen" in that colony, they both went to Plymouth and resided there several years, then Roger Williams moved to Salem, and Roger Mawry either went with him or followed him soon after, for in 1637 he was a member of the church in Salem and was appointed "Neatherd." His oldest son Jonathan was left in Plymouth, where he lived and died, and many of his descendants are there to this day. Subsequently he followed Roger Williams to Providence. The first record known of him in Providence was in 1649. He died January 5th, 1666. There is a tradition that John Mowry and his wife both died of small-pox and were buried on their farm on Sayles's Hill, on land now belonging to Benjamin Sayles, 2d. A document, well preserved, is now in the possession of Ephraim Sayles, Esq., of Smithfield, (to whom the writer is specially indebted for many kindnesses, particularly for the privilege of examining many valuable papers of great age now in his possession,) which "quit claims unto the aforesaid John Mowry a piece of land of two poles square, adjoining on the northeastern side of the said highwaye, at Page 13 the place where his father and mother was buried." This document is signed by James Bick, to whom John Mowry (son of John 1st) had deeded his farm. No reservation having been made of this burial ground, Bick quit-claimed it back to John. This quit-claim deed was written by Nathaniel Mowry, and witnessed by him and John Sayles, February 3, 1710-11. Below is a facsimile of his autograph in witness of the above quit-claim. Nathaniel's age at this time is proved by a deposition made by him about a month previous to the above date, viz.: January 6, 1710-11, in which he says he was then 66 years of age. He was therefore born about 1644. If John was he who came over in the Blessing in 1635, Nathaniel must have been born after his brother's departure from the old country. Nathaniel married in the fall of 1666, Johannah

Savage's Genealogical Dictionary says ROGER, Salem, freem. 18 May 1631, serv. as neatherd for the town 1637; may have had w. Elizabeth in 1641, but in few yrs. rem. to Providence, and was among the list of freem. there 1665, when he kept an inn, and was rep. 1658.

General Notes: The GREER, ELLIOT, SABIN, AND JEROME ANCESTRY of Mary Elliot Greer Bell and of Sarah Greer Slater, Rev. Jerome Greer, Vesta Greer Peeke, John Kingsley Greer, Frank Sabin Greer, and their Descendants, Compiled by Olive Bell Daniels, Madison, Wisconsin, 1940:

William Sabin, first progenitor of the line, appeared in the town of Rehoboth, Mass., at the organization of the town in 1643. He was a Hugenot whose father may have found refuge in England, though a William Sabin was in Kilsby, Northamptonshire, in 1543. William Sabin of Rehoboth was a man of considerable culture, possessing wealth, as shown in the account of his estate and gifts for relieving the wants of those who suffered from the ravages of the Indians. He was one of the leading spirits of Rehoboth in the school and church, and in affairs at Plymouth.

His first wife died shortly after 1660. His second marriage on 22 Dec. 1663, was to Martha, twin of Mary, the daughter of James and Anna Allen of Medfield, whose brothers Nathaniel and Joseph married daughters of William by his first wife.

William died about 1687. His will was made 4 June 1685 and probated in Boston 17 July 1687. The original will is on file in Boston. In it are mentioned sixteen of his twenty children.

2048. Thomas Osborne,33 son of Richard Osborne and Jane Broughton , was born on 18 Apr 1542 in Hartlip, Kent, England, 33 died on 12 Oct 1611 in Bur Ashford Kent 33 at age 69, and was buried in Ashley, Kent, England. 33 Ancestral File Number: 94KB-98.

General Notes: The LDS Family History Library contains a text entitled "Thomas Osborne of Ashford, Kent, England, and some of his American Descendants" by Daniel J. Weeks. In a section entitled Ashford: Ancient Seat of the Osbornes, it say at the dawn of the Seventeenth Century, Ashford, England, in the county of Kent, was a small market town of about 1,000 people. It is here in the very early part of the Seventeenth Century that we first encounter the Osborne clan, whose progeny were to make their way across the Atlantic to America during the years of Puritan migration to the New World. Because it is situated a few miles from the sea between the channel ports of the east coast of Kent and the City of London, Ashford benefited from the number of travelers who passed through Kent on their way to London. Kent itself was one of the most populous and wealthy counties in England in these years. Its prosperity was largely based upon diversified agriculture. The county was the premier fruit growing area in England during the Seventeenth Century, though it was also noted for its livestock and brewing. In the early part of the century Ashford had become a center of Puritan activity, thanks in large part to the lectures of one "Master Urdnay," whom Archbishop William Laud suppressed. It is quite likely that the Puritan agitation had a strong influence on the Osbornes, or at least on Thomas Osborne, who came to New England about 1637 and settled in the Puritan enclave at New Haven.

It should also be noted that the American settler of this particular line of the Osbornes was almost certainly a close relative of Thomas Osborne, the Earl of Danby and later Duke of Leeds, who became first minister to King Charles II. Danby's great-grandfather was Richard Osborne of Ashford.

Rosa Lee Trupp's notes add: Note: Most of what we know of Thomas Osborn of Ashford is contained in his will, which he made 27 Feb 1606/7, and which was proved 16Oct 1611. In this document, Thomas left 20 shillings to the poor of Ashford, and 10 shillings toward the maintenance of the preachers, "if they continue preaching at Ashford." He also bequeathed 10 shillings to Mr. Hawlden, the vicar of Sellinge.To his wife, Marie [Mary], he left 10 pounds and "all such wearing apparel as I have made for her since our marriage," some household goods, and "all wood work which I have made since our intermarriage." To Martha, "my wife's daughter," 20 shillings,and to Anna, "another of my wife's daughters," 5 shillings.Thomas left various goods and 10 pounds to his son Edward, and to Edmand Mellowe, son of Edward Mellowe, 20 shillings toward his apprenticeship. He also left 10 pounds to Nicholas Osborn's son Thomas. "Concerning my customary lands and tenements holden of the manor Ashfoorde whereof I have made surrender to the use of my lastwill according to the custom of the said manor, and all my other tenements and lands: to son Edwarde Osborne the copyhold purchased of John Adams sen. And the copyhold purchased of William Browne; to Jeremie Osborne my son the copyhold I purchased of Daniell Lowes alias Low and Martha his wife; to wife Mary during widowhood, the house I late purchased from Mr.Haulden, vicar of Sellindge, with the remainder to Jeremie Osborne.

2092. William Stratton 56 died from 1601 to 1604 in Shrivenham, Berkshire, England.

General Notes: Lived in London from 1606 to 1636. Removed to Tenterden, County Kent, where he died in 1647.

The Book of Strattons goes on to say that William Stratton, son of the above John, was apprenticed in London in 1599, then aged fourteen years. in the records of his company he is described as "son of John Stratton of Shrivenham."

At the end of his seven years' apprenticeship, at the age of twenty-one, he became a free citizen of London, where he resided for twenty-five years, in the parish of St. Leonard, in Eastcheap, at that time in the heart of the old city. He married Elizabeth _____ about 1612, and the records of the baptisms of their children are found in the parish register. Soon after the death of his wife, William Stratton gave up his business in London and retired to Tenterden, in the county of Kent. He married, second, Margaret _____ (a widow with two daughters), who became the mother of his three younger children, born in Tenterden. He made his will May 31, 1647, and died within the year. In his will he describes himself as "jurat," and is so described in the parish register at Tenterden.

His will is in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury; following is a full abstract of it:

"My executor to pay to my wife Margaret, 1,045 pounds, as agreed upon before our marriage; to my daughter, Elizabeth, 140 pounds, at her marriage, or when twenty years of age, and a trunk of linen appointed by her mother; to my sons John, Thomas and Nathaniel, each 120 pounds when 23; to Joseph, Benjamin and Samuel, my sons, each 100 pounds, when 23; to Bartholomew, my son, 90 pounds when 23; to my daughter, Sarah Pickering, 10 pounds for her children; to my wife's daughters, Rose and Margaret, each 10 shillings. All the rest of my estate to William, my son, and he to be my executor."

Of the sons of William Stratton of Tenterden, who settled in America, - Bartholomew and Caleb in Boston, and Richard and John on Long Island, - three, at least, have descendants living there today. Richard, it will be noticed, is the only son not to be named in his father's will in 1647. He was twenty-three years of age in 1642, - the age at which the other sons were to receive their portions of the father's estate. He had probably been given his portion and emigrated from Tenterden to America, settling on Long Island, where we find him in 1643; and where his brother John followed a few years later. (See Early Strattons of Long Island and Early Strattons of Boston.)

Genealogy of Captain John Johnson of Roxbury, Massachusetts

Attempt the end and never stand in doubt;
Nothing so hard but search will find it out.
-Herrick

The home of our ancestor in England has not been learned. As his known relatives resided about twelve miles from London on the River Lee, it is safe to say that he probably came from the same locality. Neither has the maiden name of his wife Margery been ascertained. Through the relationship mentioned in certain legal documents, it has been assumed by some that she was Margery Heath.
John Johnson, with his family, came to this country in the fleet with Winthrop, landing at Salem June 22, 1630. He settled in Roxbury, where he, with his son-in-law Richard Mowry, (Roger Ed.) was made Freeman May 18, 1631. He was active in the business of the Colony, as Juryman, serving on Committees, as Surveyor laying out the bounds of Towns around Boston. March 4, 1634/5 John Johnson and Richard Dumer were ordered to build a bridge across Muddy River. Five towns were to contribute to the cost. Mary 25, 1636 or 1635 he was chosen one of a Committee to determine the valuation of the several towns. September 8, 1636 he was again chosen for that purpose. May 17, 1637 he was chosen one of the Deputies to levy on the towns for raising fifty men to send against the Pequots. He was also chosen Surveyor General, an office, which at that time, included the care of the stock of arms and the ammunition of the Colony. An interesting account of the burning of his house, with the Colony's stock of powder, also the Town Records of Roxbury, of which he was Town Clerk, is given in Governor Winthrop's History, also in Drake's History of Roxbury. He was chosen Deputy to the House of Deputies to represent Roxbury in 1634, the first year of that Assembly; and was chosen for twenty-one years afterward, nearly all consecutively.
"Captain John Johnson was the first Clerk of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery. His son, Isaac, was its Captain, and leader at one time. It is the oldest military organization in this country, founded March 13, 1638, and which still proudly maintains its existence. Upon the rolls of its members are to be seen the names of men who in their day, through the entire history of Massachusetts, were foremost in peace and war, and who occupied the highest place in science, art, and literature, and in social, political and military life. At no time could any but a distinguished citizen have become a member of its society."
Late in his life, John Johnson was granted one thousand acres of land in consideration of his great service to the Colony.
Duties and position of the Surveyor General are described by Osgood in "American Colonies in the 17th Century" Volume I, page 513:
"In the Massachusetts Bay System the germ of the modern military staff appears chiefly in the office ordinarily designated as that of Surveyor of Ordinance, or later as General Surveyor of Arms. Early in 1631 the general court chose a Surveyor of Ordinance, to be allowed £10 per year. But from 1632 to 1642 the business of the office was mainly transacted through committees. In 1642, owing to fear of an Indian attack and the desire that the colony might be well supplied with powder, John Johnson was appointed Surveyor General of the Arms. From that time until the downfall of the Colony government, the many references to the office indicate its importance. The Surveyor General of Arms was a custodian of the Colony's supply of ordinance, arms and ammunition; under authority from the general court, he delivered powder to the towns, and received back from them any excessive supplies which might have been issued. He could also sell ammunition. He was empowered to recover arms belonging to the Colony from individuals or towns that had them in their possession, to either preserve them pending an order of the general court, or to sell them at a fair price and procure others in their place. The purchases of ammunition were usually made through the Surveyor General, though in co-operation with the treasurer. Orders of the general court that he should loan munitions to individuals are common. When in 1643, arms and stores were brought from Castle Island, an invoice of the whole was given to the Surveyor General and the arms were delivered into his custody...."
Captain Johnson was married second to Grace Negus, widow of Barnabas Fowler. Grace died on September 29th, according to town records.

SML Comment: For detailed information on his life and possible ancestry, refer to THE BIOGRAPHY AND GENEALOGY OF CAPTAIN JOHN JOHNSON FROM ROXBURY, MASSACHUSETTS, by Gerald Garth Johnson (2000, Heritage Books, Inc., Bowie, MD), available from the publisher.

He married Mary Heath, daughter of William Heath & Agnes Cheney, in England. Died on 9 Jan 1655. Buried Roxbury, Mass., on 9 Apr 1655.

Many authorities add JOHN to the list of children and generally as first child. This seems to be an error, perhaps stated by Farmer's General Register, page 163, which give "1 JOHN: who died in 1661." The JOHN who died in 1661 was a son of Captain Isaak Johnson as shown by the church records. It is certain that no JOHN came over with the family. There is no evidence whatever that there was any child other than the five given .

General Notes: See extensive notes on John Billington by Harry Hadaway on Caleb Johnson's Mayflower website which includes:

ANCESTRAL SUMMARY: The only clue to the ancestry of John Billington is a 1612 lease of 29 acres of land from the English Crown to a gentleman, Francis Longland, and two heirs of his choice. He chose Francis Billington, son of John, and Francis Newton, son of Robert. In 1650, a survey of the land stated that Francis Longland was still living in Welby, Lincolnshire, England, aged 70, and that Francis Newton was living in Swayfield, Lincolnshire, England, and that Francis Billington was living in New England, aged about 40. Research is currently ongoing into the Newton, Longland, and Billington families of Lincolnshire. Preliminary discoveries made by researcher Leslie Mahler show that Francis Longland was the son of John and Mary Longland of Welby. Mary Longland names her son Francis, and a daughter "Katherine Newton" in will of 20 August 1613. Also mentioned in Mary's will, among others, is her goddaughter Mary Newton. It seems likely that Katherine married Robert Newton, and they had a son Francis Newton. This would make Francis Newton the nephew of Francis Longland. The connection between Francis Longland and Francis Billington has not yet been discovered, but research in this area continues. There is a John Billington son of John baptized on 25 April 1604 in Thurlby Near Bourne, Lincolnshire, which seems like a good candidate for the John Billington II of the Mayflower. There is a Francis Billington bp. 24 June 1607 in St. Michael, Stamford, Lincolnshire son of William which should be "watched" when further research is made, because this shows there are two Francis Billington's of the same age in the same county.

BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY:

John Billington came on the Mayflower with his wife Ellen and children John and Francis. The Billingtons are recorded as a contentious family. Young Francis Billington nearly blew up the Mayflower while it was sitting in Provincetown Harbor--he shot off a gun near an open barrel of gun powder inside the Mayflower's cabin. Shortly after settling down at Plymouth, John Billington the elder was charged with contempt when he bad-mouthed and insulted Myles Standish, and was sentenced to have his neck and heels tied together, but he humbled himself and was forgiven. A few months later, John Billington the younger wandered off into the woods, and was taken by the Nauset Indians to Cape Cod, where he lived for about a month before he was returned. In 1624, John Billington the Elder was implicated in the Oldham-Lyford scandal, in which blasphemous letters were secretly being written and sent to England trying to undermine the Plymouth Colony. However, Billington claimed he was a scapegoat, and there was not enough evidence to show he was a party to the scandal so the matter was dropped. In 1630, John Billington the Elder was tried and executed for the murder of John Newcomen, whom Billington had shot with a musket in a quarrel over a past dispute between the two. He was found guilty by a grand and petty jury, "by plain and notorious evidence", and became the first Englishman to be hanged in New England.

Savage's Genealogical Dictionary says JOHN, Plymouth 1620, came in the Mayflower with w. Helen, and two s. John, wh. d. bef. his f. but after the div. of cattle in 1627, and Francis, bef. ment. He was hang. for murder in 1630, of John Newcomen. See Bradford's Hist. 276, and Winthrop I. 36.

xxx —The wife of John Billington, Eleanor was with him in 1620 on the Mayflower. Her maiden name is not known, though some have speculated that it might have been Newton, since her son Francis inherited land in Lincolnshire, England, with a co-heir named Newton. However, Billington researcher Harriett Hodge thinks that the surname could be Longland. On 1636 Eleanor was fined £5 and sentenced to sit in the stocks and be whipped for slandering John Doane (PCR 1:42). She was married between 28 August 1638 and 21 September 1638 to (2) Gregory Armstrong (PCR 12:33. 37), but there is no record of her having any children by him.

General Notes: From page 127, volume 1, "Boston and Eastern Massachusetts" by W. R. Cutter (1908):
"The surname Savel, Saville, Savell, Savill or Savile, is of ancient date in England. The surname was adopted by one of the most illustrious families of the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, as early as the twelfth century and in the thirteenth SAVILE was a large and flourishing family. Some writers have fanicifully ascribed to this name an Italian origin, but the name was originally Norman without doubt. The evidence tends to show that all the families of this surname had a common origin. Thomas Savile, Esq., of Savile Hall, Yorkshire, in the time of Henry III had two sons: John, his heir; and Henry, ancestor of the Savilles, baronets, of Copley and Meehley. Sir John Savile, sherriff of county York, in the fifth and eleventh years of Richard II, great-great-grandson of John, first mentioned, had two sons: Sir John, whose daughter and heir Isabel, married Thomas D'Arcy; Henry; ancestors of Savile, baronets, of Thornhill. Invarious parts of England the family bears this coat-of-arms or one closely resembling it: Argent on a bend sable three owls of the field. Branches of the family have been prominent at Oxton and Rufford Abbey in Nottinghamshire, in Derby and Devonshire."

The following notes are actually for this William's son. They are included here since our ancestor is William's daughter Anne Sutton Saville and the reader might not see these notes otherwise.

"WILLIAM SAVILLE was the immigrant ancestor as far as known of all of the early families of New England. He was a joiner by trade. He settled in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and was employed there by the notorious Nathaniel Eaton in 1641. He removed to Braintree where his descendants have been numerous to the present time. He married HANNAH TIDD, daughter of JOHN TIDD, tailor, an immigrant from Hartford, England, and she is mentioned in her father's will. She died Aug. 14, 1650, and he married (2) Nov. 2, 1655, Sarah Gannitt. He died April 6, 1669.
