Gone but not forgotten
A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is still,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled,
God in His wisdom has recalled,
The boon his love had given,
And though the body slumbers here,
The soul is safe in Heaven

General Notes: Joseph Burke owned (bought from the Ovellsand one other family) a farm in Weedville, PA. He built the Burke house in 1902. His early work life was as a woodsman in the lumbering business. He was the horse teamster- working with a team of horses as they moved logs down the river. A freak accident where trees fell on him broke his hip and caused him to walk with a limp the rest of his life. He turned to other occupations such as a blacksmith shoeing mules in the Shawmut coal mine(1902-1926), a Raleigh Salesman ( household goods and ointments) . Herode around in a yellow Raleigh buggy with one-two horses, then eventually going to a truck( 1926-1944). Retired in 1944 at 70 years.

Birth place was initially thought to be Reading Pa based on Brumbach genealogy information and J Burke's eath certificate. But it makes more sense that it was Spring Run based on when Robert Burke moved to Jay, Elk County and Robert and family in 1870 Jay census.

General Notes: Notes from Nora Burke: After reading the clipping following on pages 126 to 129, I ( Nora) decided to record some happenings of my youngdays during those same years.
I was born in the year of 1881 and started to school when I was five years old. It was a small one room school house ? sometime there wereonly ten pupils, sometime 20 according as families moved to this neighborhood or moved away. I think the teachers received about $30.00 a month and paid about $8.00 a month for board. They boarded at the home of one of the pupils. As years passed I think both the salary and the board increased in price.
That little (Gray) school house is the only school I ever attended. That was to my 15th year.
My mother was a very efficient house keeper and general worker and a fine business woman. We had a farm of medium size, maybe 30 acres of cleared farm land, kept about 3 milk cows, a flock of sheep (15 or 20), some pigs and chickens. In those days we fenced our crops and let the cows and sheep run loose to pick or graze their living through spring, summer and fall.
Mother made plenty of butter (very good job). On Saturday P.M. it was like a holiday for us. Mother and Dad would hitch the team to our two seated hack (that?s a light spring wagon) and we would drive to town either to Caledonia or Benezett to trade the butter and eggs for groceries. Some times there would be other farm produce to sell or trade such as fruit or vegetables or maybe a butchered lamb.
We always had lots to eat at home due to mother?s thriftiness and planning. Hundreds of quarts of home canned fruit each year. Two or three butchered hogs, some put in brine, canned sausage for keeping the year around. On Sundays or holidays we had chicken dinner.
Then through the summer when we wanted a special spell of meat we would butcher a good size lamb, likely sell half of it and put the other half on ice to keep a few days till we got it eaten. We always had our ice house full of ice buried in sawdust. In the winter time when they sawed it out of ponds or deep creeks and hauled it home on sleds with the team of horses. These blocks of ice would keep well until thelast of July or first of August so we could make ice cream on Sundays.
Our neighbors enjoyed coming to our house to eat ice cream. On Saturdays, mother made a habit of baking cake and pie. Always the cookie crocks contained white cookies, ginger cookies and doughnuts. She never allowed us to stuff or over eat on the pastries. We had enough andplenty. When company came she was never caught unprepared.
When I was a child I didn?t realize what a wonderful manager she was but as I grew older I appreciated these fine business habits and thrift, and wished I had told here so but when young it seemed to me like just a lot of hard work. Many other neighbors were grand workers too, while quite a number lived skimpy both as to food and clothes because they knew not how to manage or in some instances it may have been laziness or ignorance.
For about 14 years we lived in an old fashioned unpainted farm house. Upstairs there were three bedrooms and an attic room. Downstairswas a good size living room (called sitting room then), two small bedrooms ? two pantries, a fair size kitchen, we ate in our kitchen.
Our kitchen was plain (middle class style). We had rag carpet in tworooms ? the living room and spare bed room. Mother sewed the rags, then in the afternoon when the house work was all done she walked to a neighbor?s house and used their carpet weaving loom to weave our carpet. She wove extra yard for strips to put on the floor as rugs where we did the most walking. She made window curtains of cheese cloth. We thought it looked very nice.
The wool peddler came once a year with his big covered wagon and team. Then we traded the sheared wool for wool bed blankets, yarn and for yard goods that mother used to make up into coats, dresses, underwear for the whole family. Dad?s pants and lumber jack coat. From the age of 8 years we were taught to knit our own stockings and mittens. In winter we were warmly clad. So when we were fully dressed we lookedquite plump. Likely folds now would sooner go cold than wear such thick clothing.
Our folks had about 80 acres of timber land. They sold logs or use them for their farm and home. Then hauled logs to the sawmill to be sawed into lumber for their new house. The sawmill burned down one night and they lost all their lumber. So they cut more logs and hauled them to another mill.
Then they built a large twelve room house with a cellar under the entire house. The carpenters came there and stayed while building the house. He got $125.00 dollars and his board and room. I think it was the year of 1896.
My grandparents lived twenty-four miles from our place. Every so often we drove there for a week end visit. Sometime we drove the team and hack ? other times one horse and buggy. Those trips and visits areone of the nicest memories of my life.
I also cherish the memories of the way we observed and celebrated holy days and holidays. Of course Christmas was the best of all. Always spent at home with our tree, new toys and special eats. In our estimation no other place could be half so grand.
Mother always prepared for and observed every holiday (no matter how unimportant) in the proper manner. Such fun. On 4th of July we went to town. Maybe it wasn?t much of a celebration but we thought so, forthat was when we ate at a hotel, watched folks dance on the pavilion and saw a parade, and ate extra amounts of candy, peanuts and oranges. Several times in the course of our childhood Mother took us to an animal circus. Then we were sure we had seen everything in this worldworth seeing.
As far back as I can remember Sister Stella and I attended Sunday school at Mt. Zion. (Except when we had gone to visit Grandma) Nancy andWilliam Luce always stopped for us as they drove by in their two seated hack. We had church service every other Sunday P.M. and Sunday school each Sunday. Mother attended then (Sunday school that Sunday as it was just before the preaching service.
The preacher, Rev Ebersole on his twice a month trip from Sterling Run to Toby nearly always stopped (He and his good wife) at our place over night. The spare bed room was always ready for them or any other visitor.
These are a few of the incidents of life as I remember them from about 1886 to 1895.
Nora Burke
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Nora's birth date being before Michael and Lovern's wedding date has led to a few stories of being born out of wedlock. Lovern as her mother is consistent. Nora's father is not as solid . Lovern may have had a premarital affair with someone or even Michael or some forced event. Michael moved into Jonathon Stephens house after Michael's parent died when he a Lovern were teenagers. . If Michael was father why didn't they marry before she was born vrs a couple years later. In the 1900 census the birthplace of her father is listed as unknown ( whereas Michael Ovell born in Penna was known) No matter Nora grew up as their child from the beginning. Just want to give some explanation of date issues..

Noted events in her life were:

• Hobbies/ Enjoyments: Church; Gardening; Having Company Around; Cooking And Canning.

• Cause of Death .: Coronary Occlusion; Insufficiency.

Nora married Joseph Burke 6 on 8 Jul 1896 in Brockport, Elk Co, PA.

A. M. Ent Recorder

REBECCA HICKS and her sister, Mary Elizabeth, married Winslow brothers. Rebecca and Charles married in 1845 and Mary Elizabeth and Ebenezermarried in 1847. The brothers were two of the children of Beulah Keene and Carpenter Winslow, who had come to the Punxsutawney area from Massachusetts/ Maine about 1818, with their two eldest sons. They had ten more children after they arrived in Punxsy. The Winslows (Charles line is not a direct decendent) and Keenes were descendants of the Pilgrims in Plymouth Colony. Eventually, Beulah and several of her children made their way to Benezette, where the men engaged in the lumberingand railroad industry. Rebecca and Charles were the parents of eight children, all of whom were raised in Benezette. Each of their children had several children of their own, and the tradition of large families continued. Rebecca was widowed in 1869, after 24 years of marriage. At the time, her youngest daughter, Harriet was only nine years old. In her later years, Rebecca made her home with Hattie and her husband, John Tuttle. The copy of her will indicates that she left her homein Benezette to the Tuttles. (( Hattie died in 1904 after will was written but before Rebecca died))

Noted events in her life were:

• She appeared on the census in 1880 in Living With Son Clarence.

Rebecca married Charles Keene Winslow 7 on 20 Feb 1845 in Benezette, Elk Co., PA.

10. Andrew J Johnston, son of William B Johnston and Margaret Keener, was born about 23 Apr 1832 in Prob Shelocta, Indiana Co, PA, died between 1880 and Jun 1905 in Maybe Dubois, Clearfield Co, PA (Death Date Unknown),9 and was buried in Couldn't Find Grave In Rehobeth Comm Cem Dubois As Wife Was.

General Notes: Middle initial 'J', may have been Jackson or James. Johnston was originally Johnstone. Among "Taxables of Winslow Township Jefferson, Pa in 1860" were: ...... William B. Johnston, Reuben Johnston, Andrew Johnston, Jacob K. Johnston, James Johnston ......Truman B. London,Jr.

AJ's birthdate: "about" 1832 from census records. Found Andrew and Eliza in the same census household in the 1860 (Aug. 7) A. J. Johnston, age 28 & wf. Eliza M., age 24 with 4 children in Winslow twp., Jefferson Co., Pa., Brown's Mills, P.O. 1870 Census (July 6) Andrew, age 37, with wf. Eliza age 36 & 9 children in Bell twp., Jefferson Co., Pa. 1880 Census, June 2 Eliza, age 46, marked "widow", with 8 children still @ home, Hill St., Reynoldsville, Jeff.Co., Pa. 1900 Haven't found either of them. 1910 Microcode Clearfield co., Pa. ED 55 Fam. # 215. Adison Weaver husband (meaning head of h/h in this index) Eliza M. Johnson age 76 mother-in-law b Pa. Adison Weaver was the second husband of Eliza and Andrew's daughter, Susan "Susie" Johnston. Susie first married A. S. Beard.

AJ's death date: Eliza had no children after Charles born abt. 1873 so assume Andrew J. died between 1872 and 1874. If there was a divorce it certainly wouldn't have been talked about . Suspect the died of the "Johnston heart" as so many have, and at ages rangingrom young to elderly. In Beers History published, 1898, it says Andrew Johnston was living in Washington County. Did he leave Eliza? Did he and Eliza have an interest in the family farm with Jacob?

AJ's parents:
From Kathy Myers: Found a deed from William B. Johnston to AndrewJohnston and Jacob K. Johnston for 59 acres and 96 perches in WinslowTownship. It does appear that the deed from William Johnston to Andrew Johnston and Jacob Johnston ( Jacob K. Johnston, son of William, grandson of Andrew, and brother of Andrew) was from father to sons. The deed was dated May 17, 1853 and recorded January 28, 1868. Part ofthe deed, on the next page was an assignment, wherein Andrew Johnstonand Eliza M. assigned their interest in 50 acres to J. K. Johnston.I wrote down that the notary date as November 6, 1858, so now I am wondering if I miscopied the date of the deed and it should be May 17, 1858 (it is difficult reading old deeds). Regardless, I know the date of 1868 for recording is correct. Possibly Jacob K. had to pay them for his share and once he did, they had the deed recorded. This does show that A. J. was still alive in 1868.

Found a deed from A. J. Johnston and Eliza M. to Andrew McCreary for 105 acres in Winslow Township, Jeff. Co., The deed was dated January 3, 1867 and recorded December 30, 1867. Found a Power of Attorneygiven by Jonas Foltz to A. J. Johnston of Winslow Township, recorded July 17, 1872. I did not find any entries for A. J. after that.

email from M Breene Julia died of the "Johnston Heart", as we call it. You had asked me what that is. They die in their sleep, totally unexpectedly. Often have no idea there is a heart problem of any kind. Sometimes they know there is some relatively minor problem, but with theJohnston "gene" for this, it means one may not wake up some morning and that is it. Always unexpected. I expect that this is what happened to Andrew J. Johnston, husband of Eliz Maria nee London. I She is called a widow in the 1880 census, yet I keep finding genealogies on the net that state he died after 1900. Eliza Maria was a widow in the 1900 census also. Why these two census's are ignored I don't know. There isa weak possibility that he left and that was hush hush and cover up.I don't think that is the case. I think she was simply widowed and the other county he was supposed to be in at one point could mean he was working there, perhaps died there. I see someone says he is not buried by Eliza. I was at the cemetery once and could not go into the tall grass. Therefore I was not sure if there was a tombstone for him ornot. I sure wish I knew if it was just missing, vandalized, or if there was never one there. It would seem he would have been buried in Jeff. co. and the cemetery where Nanny is is very over grown. I went there looking for her tombstone and could not find it. Pat Steel who wrote the Tombstone Hoppin books has it in her books. She insists it was there (obviously) and thinks it still is and that I just didn't dig around far enough in the woods, etc. If I could ever get over there, dressed properly to avoid hateful things like snakes, and get her with me, maybe we could find it. I would think that is likely where Andrew would have been buried. the family had money then and it does not make sense there is no tombstone for Andrew.

Noted events in his life were:

• He had a residence between 1860 and 1880 in Based On Census Both Lived In Jefferson County, PA == Winslow Twp; Bell Twp; Reynoldsville.

• He appeared on the census in 1860 in A. J. Johnston, Age 28 & Wf. Eliza M., Age 24 With 4 Children In Winslow Twp., Jefferson Co., PA., Brown's Mills, P.O.

General Notes: She was called Eliza Maria.. Elizabeth's obit. was in DuBois paper June 1(or 11), 1914. Death Cert. states she is widowed; cause ofdeath- shock caused by attack gall stones. In History of Jefferson Co., PA, 1888 : Eliza Mariah and "married to Andrew Johnston, a resident of DuBois, Clearfield Co., and the wise mother of an interesting family."

Brockwayville Record, June 12, 1914
Well Known Resident Died Monday at DuBois
Mrs Eliza M Johnston Passed Away While Visiting at the Home of Her Son
Eliza Johnston died Monday at 2:00 at the home of her son, Charles, of DuBois. Cause of death was given as gallstones. She had been making her home for the past five years with her daughter, Mrs Susan Weaver near Salem and went to DuBois on Thursday last to visit with her son. While she was there she was taken sick and her condition grew worse until death came Monday morning. The deceased was 80 years of age last March. She is survived by the following children: J. K. of Reynoldsville; Mrs Susan Weaver of Salem; David, Trenton,NJ; G.M. McKees Rocks; William, Youngstown,OH; John of Buffalo; Mrs J. O. Lenkerd of C&M Junction; Joseph of Driftwood; Charles of DuBois. One child is dead. The husband of the deceased, A. J. Johnston, died 10 years ago. The deceased had lived at that section since 1891 and was a woman quitewidely known having many friends who will regret to hear of her death. The funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at 2:00 at the home of her son, Charles at DuBois. The services were conducted by RevHenry Johnston of the Baptist Church. Interment was made at RumbargerCemetery. Following close to the death of Mrs Johnston came word of the death of one of her Daughters, Mrs Winslow, which occurred at the Loch Haven Hospital Tuesday. Mrs Winslow had gone there fours weeks ago to undergo an operation and had expected to return home this week.Details of her death have not been received but it is thought that the shock of hearing that her mother had died was in part responsible for the suddenness of her end. Her body was taken to the home at Benezette and burial will probably be made today.

((son George McClelland Johnston living with sister Mary and husband William K Winslow in 1880 census)

Notes from Kathy Myers:
Eliza's last will and testament was dated July 2, 1900, no mention ofa husband, leaving all to her children, which she named. When she died in 1914, property listed in the inventory was something valued at $100 in Reynoldsville. She had money on deposit at Deposit Bank in DuBois and had a small amount of stock if I recall correctly in the Reynoldsville water department. Anyhow, when her will was made she was Eliza M. Johnston of DuBois. No mention of a husband.
In looking at the deeds, I located one where she sold a property in DuBois along with David Johnson and Elizabeth, his wife. This deed wasdated May 2, 1891, so there was apparenty no A. J. in 1891.
The prior deed to this property was into the name of D. C. Johnston.It was dated October 13, 1885. The deed contains a life estate for Mrs. E. M. Johnston. So, A. J. wasn't alive in 1885. The children must have brought her to DuBois to be closer to them.
The next deed is Eliza purchasing a property in DuBois dated June 25,1892. She later sold it to Charles L. Johnston, deed dated June 4, 1900. In this last transaction she was listed as a widow.
So, my conclusions. She apparently went to live with someone in 1900when she sold her property in DuBois. A. J. was deceased prior to October 13, 1885.
I believe we will find A. J. in Jefferson County, but again, I didn'tnote him in Caldwell's Atlas at least for Winslow Township.
I have previously looked at the Will of Truman London in Jefferson County. He left Eliza several properties. Possibly she and A. J. livedin Reynoldsville or nearby.

Noted events in her life were:

• Other: Supposedly From A Gifted Musical Family.

• Other: Died At Home Of Son C L Johnston.

Elizabeth married Andrew J Johnston before 1856 in Jefferson Co., PA.

12. Robert Edward Burk,10 son of James Burke and Jane Neff, was born on 8 Mar 1844 in Northumberland Co. , Pennsylvania, died on 19 Feb 1924 in Caledonia, Jay Township, Elk Co, Pennsylvania at age 79, and was buried in 1924 in MT Zion Cemetery, Weedville, Elk Co, PA.

General Notes: Robert Burk(e) was the fifth son of six children born to James and Jane Nieff Burke on March 24, 1844. In Northumberland County, Penna. Robert's mother, Jane, died when he was eight years old, and from the time of her death until he was seventeen, Robert followed the canal.

Bob had a sister Sara who lived in DuBois married to an attorney named Gleason. Bob would not acknowledge his sister Sara over a dispute involving religion. Bob had a falling out with the Catholic Church, and became a Protestant while Sara remained a Catholic causing irreconcilable differences between the two that were never resolved).

Was a Sargeant in the Civil War in the 152nd PA Volunteers- 3rd HeavyArtillery Co D. Per discharge papers Part of Army of the James serving in the Petersburg-Richmond campaigns;Bermuda Hundred; headquarteredat Fort Monroe, Norfolk, Virginia. Fort Monroe - Built 1819-23, it is the largest moat-encircled masonry fortification in America and an important Union base for campaigns throughout the Civil War.
(Historical Note: Capt E Evans Company D also served as a Headquarters ( Fortress Monroe) Guard unit. After capture in Georgia on May 10, 1865, Jefferson Davis and others were shipped on the Clyde to Fortress Monroe as a prisoner of war- 5/1865 to 1867. Jeff Davis was moved into Capt Evan's room at the Fort. Bob Burke was stationed with Company D 's guard unit until it was mustered out of service in Nov 1865)

ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-SECOND REGIMENT-THIRD ARTILLERY.

The Third Pennsylvania Heavy Artillery was formed in the spring of 1863 by the consolidation of the commands of Colonel Segebarth and MajorRoberts, and organized with Joseph Roberts, colonel, B. V. W. Howard,lieutenant colonel, and John A. Darling, major. Though originally designed for special duty at Fortress Monroe, the regiment performed a large share of field duty. One company was stationed at Baltimore, but with this exception detachments from the entire regiment participated in a number of engagements of more or less importance on the James, Chickahominy, and Nansemond rivers, and also in the capture of Fort Fisher, North Carolina. During the campaign before Petersburg, Companies D, E, G, and M served in the Army of the James, and were posted at Bermuda Front. After the downfall of the Confederacy these companies returned to duty at Fortress Monroe, and during the incarceration of Jefferson Davis at that place he was under guard of detachments from this regiment.
Battery D was principally from Northumberland county, and was composed as follows;-
Captains: Henry A. Colt, Edwin A. Evans.
First Lieutenants: Frederick R. Kent, James F. Kline, Sylvester W. Marshall.
Second Lieutenants: William E. Dorsey, E. W. Sheibner, Lemuel Shipman, Loren M. Leonard.
Sergeants: Josiah B. Edwards, Charles C. Jones, John Hawley, Robert Burk, Benjamin F. Cox, William Cook, John McLane, Francis M. Thomas, A.W. Minich, George H. Borger, Joseph Randall, John McLeod, John V. Walker.

After the war in 1865, Bob returned home where he was employed by the Philadelphia and Erie railroad for four years; three years as a fireman, and later being promoted to an engineer.

Following his employment with the railroad, Robert moved to Jay Township and worked at Oliver Dodge's sawmill in Spring Run as a sawyer. The breast works of the mill pond, located just a short distance upstream from the Spring Run bridge, is still noticeable to this day. Robert's last residence was Caledonia, and here he worked for the Putnam lumber company.

Bob's grandson and namesake, Robert E. recalled the following story told to him by his father-Ambrose "Rip" Burke: Old Bob was living in Caledonia, and caring for his garden in Spring Run. At that time he hada temporary ailment in the form of a skin rash on his arm. One day Bob and Rip were walking over the hill from Caledonia to tend the family garden in Spring Run, and as they traveled on their way. Old Bob was rubbing and scratching his itchy rash, causing his arm to turn red. As they were passing the Hess residence, they were greeted by the roadside by Betsy Hess. As they talked Betsy noticed Bob's rash, and asked him to come with her over by the pig pen where she picked some "smart weed". She handed Bob the weed, together with giving him verbalinstructions to boil the weed in water and when the concoction cooleddown, to rub the broth on his rash. After leaving the Hess residence. Bob called Betsy a gypsy quack together with making a figure of speech comment concerning her illegitimate ancestry. He made a jester of throwing the weed over the bank, but didn't. A little farther downthe road they came to a watering trough. Against his better judgement. Bob soaked the smart weed in the water, rung it out, and rubbed iton his rash. According to Rip, the string of the remedy tickled the old fellows chin whiskers, and poor Betsy caught hell all over again.Low and behold, the next day didn't the rash begin to clear up and within several days it was gone completely. Could this give credence tosupport that some of the old medical remedies did actually cure some ailments, even it they did tickle your chin whiskers.

Bob Burke was a tough Irishman, of whom I have vague recollections ofbeing told by my grandfather Joseph, that his father was not once, but twice struck by lightning. Whether he was struck once or twice this writer is not certain. However, we do have two different accounts of one of the lightning attacks. Bertha Ovell, Bob's granddaughter. Recalls that lightning struck his house while Bob sat at his table. The family dog who was under the table at the time, sought refuse from future lightning storms outdoors. Joseph Burke, Jr. Account of this attack as told to him by his father was that Bob was laying in a metal frame bed, when lightning struck his house, came down a metal stove pipe chimney, and jumped to his bed, tearing up some floor boards in theprocess, causing a serious injury to Bob's foot. One thing is certain, Bob Burke was hit with lightning on at least one occasion, and worethe scar of the attack to his grave. The following poem, written by Elmer B. Howard, made mention of Bob's encounter with lightning.

Caledonia
(in the 1890's) Excerpt Composed by Elmer B. Howard, who died in NewKensington in 1947. Given to Ambrose 'Rip" Burke by George Dixon, son of E. H. Dixon.

My memory takes me back again to days that have gone by,
To a little town on Bennett's branch, we lived there, you and 1. There lived old E. H. Dixon, he was the village squire;
His son George played the organ in the old church choir.
Bill Layberger lived across the bridge and on top of the hill,
And before my memory fails me, I must mention Henry Sill.
Phillip O'Reilly was some man. And no job would he shirk.

And in the first house of the "row" lived tough old Robert Burke the man whom lightning could not kill, and who never feared to work. .....................

From Charlotte Erin Burke email : Haunted Burke House (My grandfather was Bob Burke he lived in the Burke family house in Caledonia. Which my grandma Leanore still lives in today-2007.) some other interesting things about the house in Caledonia. There is said to be 3 ghostsin that house. Several of us being witness to some form of activity at sometime or another. Grandpa Bob even said he saw the ghost of hisfather one night after coming home from work. When he got home he sat in the living room and watched a little tv and headed up the stairsto his bedroom. When he turned his head up to climb the stairs he saw what looked like his father, but he could see through him. I have acousin(Terry's oldest daughter) who said when she was little and was staying with my grandparents, she too saw this old man at the top of the steps. She said he looked like he had just got done working a hard day and was wearing work clothes. It was until years later when she was looking through an old family photo album and recognized the picture of Rip as the old man she had seen. My older brother Rick said he has seen, going up the stairs also, what looked like the bottom part of a womens long dress at the top of the staircase. He said he did not raise his eyes any higher and bolted back down the steps. He was pretty scared. So there are lots of neat old stories about the house. It has been there for over 150yrs.

onto settle in Elk Co. Pa. (Which was even before it was Elk Co. It then was
Clearfield Co). Mike "homesteaded" the property that became the Ovellfarm
in Mt. Zion, he set aside some acerage for his pal Ebenezer Stephens to come
and live near him. What ever became of this, I have no idea but it maybe one reason why the Stephens ended up in NW PA.

It is also interesting that Jonathan Stephens took in Michael Ovell #2 when Jacob and Sarah Ovell died since he was only 12 years old. Jonathan is Loverns' dad. That means that Mike and Lovern grew up together being very close to the same age. There is some mention of Mike going there because of Ward Stephens being his Uncle so I am sure there is a family connection to Ward somewhere.
As a side note to this whole mess, in an 1880 census it lists the Stephens
family household and Michael Ovell as a "servent" to them. This wasa "common" way to record persons who lived in a household were not actually blood family or Mike was made to "work for his keep". Either way, he was not really thought of as family.
Now moving a bit closer in time......My grandmother Bertha Dodd Ovell wife of Ernest and sister-in-law to Nora) told me horror stories about Lovern. Seems she was a mean, nasty lady. Even my dad, who remembers her said how mean she was.
Grandma Bertha moved into the Ovell home at about 17 years old, to help take care of an aging Mike and Lovern Ovell. She married grandpa Ernest Ovell mainly to prevent Lovern from treating her as a "servent",plus it was scandlous for her to live under the same roof as a young man ( my grandpa) at that time and age. Anyway, Lovern always made a point of being as mean as she could be to Grandma and telling how her husband, Michael, was a "servent" in the Stephens house. When you getgoing into genealogy, you can dig up lots-o-dirt.

General Notes: Based on the following I'm assuming William B is Andrew's father, andJacob K(eener?) is a brother::per Kathy Myers- I found a deed from William B. Johnston to Andrew Johnston and Jacob K. Johnston (from father to sons) for 59 acres and 96 perches in Winslow Township. The deed was dated May 17, 1853 and recorded January 28, 1868.

History of Reynoldsville and Vicinity, including Winslow Township:
"Jacob Smith and William Johnston were the principal trappers in whatis now Winslow Township"
Under Early Settlers: "The heads of families living in Winslow township in 1845 were:.......William Johnston, born in Butler"

"In 1846 the first timber raft went from Reynoldsville to Brookville via the Sandy Lick Creek, said creek having been declared a highway bythe State in 1826......William B. Johnston was the pilot of the firstraft and he and his crew found it hard work to cut the trees which had fallen across the stream and to clear out the obstructions. Afterthe creek became passable, it required four or five days to make the trip to Pittsburgh via Red Bank Creek." After the timber was sold, the raftsmen returned home by boat as far as thet could go, then they walked the rest of the way.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Andrew Johnston the father of gunsmith William B Johnston left Ireland with his parents when he was four years of age and the family firstsettled in Cinncinnatti Ohio. Later the Johnstons moved to Butler County Pa where William was born on December 20, 1796. Somtime prior to1825 the Johnstons moved to the Shelocta area of Indiana county, where William married a local girl Margaret Keener. During their long marraige the produced 132 children.
Next to nothing is know of Johnstons early life, but some reasonalbleconclusions can be constructed thru analysis of various sourses. In the 1830 census Johsnton is lead of head of houselhold in Armstrong townshiop, Indiana county, witha wife very much his junior and two femalechildren under 5. These chilren would be daughters Mary and Nancy.His wife Margaret , born Feb 10, 1810 was approx 14 yrs younger than her husband. We are uncertain of the birthdate of their third child Andrew Johnston, but in the 1850 census he was listed as age 18 suggesting 1832. Jacob the 4th child was born in Shelocta county Armstrong twsh in Mar 1834 when his mother would have been 24. Assuming these were the only children and none were lost at birth we can estimate that Margaret Keener was 16 or a bit older when she marred 30 yr old William Johnston in 1826.
Recorded history reveals that he was a gunsmith by trade when he migrated to Winslow tshp Jefferson county about 1841 and tax records indicate that he had a hand in the armsas long as he lived but his early years are very much shrouded. He came out of an area in Indiana county that was next door to Armstrong and Westmoreland counties and this region was well supplied with gunsmiths. Perhaps future studies will turn up his teacher.
Lumbering was the prime occupation of the area at that time and Johnston was listed as the first river pilot on a raft at Brooksville in 1846 It took 4-5 days to go from Reynoldsville to Pittsburgh via Red Bank Creek and the Allegheny River.
He died on 12/17/1872 and was buried at Prospect Cemetery in Winslow Township between West Libirity and Prescottville. HIs wife Margaret died 7 years later and was buried by his side.

Noted events in his life were:

• Moved: 1841, To Winslow Twp, Jefferson Cty, PA.

LONDON, TRUMAN BEAMAN. The progenitors of T.B. London were English, and
his grandparents on both the paternal and maternal side lived and died in Luzerne County, Pa. These were Edward London, a native of New Jersey, and Samuel Callender, born in Virginia. They won an honorable right to the soil of the Republic, for themselves and their posterity,by patriotic devotion to the spirit of 1776, during the long and trying carnage of the Revolution.
His father, whose name was Isaac, was born in New Jersey, and his mother, whose maiden name was Sarah Callender, was a native of Conn. Theformer died in Luzerne county in 1843, and the latter in Jefferson county in 1846.
Truman Beaman London was born in Luzerne county (now Lackawanna)
on the 11th day of October, 1808, and was the second child of a family of nine. By self endeavors and in the public schools he received avery thorough education in the place of his nativity, where he grew up to manhood, and where he was engaged in the lumber trade until 1837. He manufactured lumber and marketed it at Harrisburg, Columbia, Marietta, Port Deposit, and other points on the Susquehanna River.
On September 13, 1831, he was united in wedlock to Sally Mariah Slawson, which union was blessed with offspring, numbering six, divided equally as to sex. Their names, in consecutive order of birth, are Martha Jane, born July 28, 1832; Eliza Mariah, March 9, 1834; Truman Beaman, March 10, 1836; Isaac, September 3, 1838; Moses Slawson, January 31, 1841; Mary Ann, May 29, 1842. The first and the last two are deceased. Their mother died June 23, 1842.
Of those living, Isaac is a wide awake and successful merchant of Reynoldsville, and a man greatly esteemed by all who know him; Truman B. is a successful farmer of Winslow Township; and Eliza M., who married Andrew Johnston, is a resident of DuBois, Clearfield county, and the wise mother of an interesting family.
The subject of this biography emigrated from Luzerne county to Jefferson, locating in Brookville in 1837. Upon his advent there he found such representative citizens as Judge Heath, John Heath, the Dunham, Dr. Jenks, Barclay Jenks, Drs. Bishop and Darling, who were the physicians of the town, Samuel Truby, Jared Evans, Levi G. Clover, Thomas Hastings, John Dougherty, etc. Barclay Jenks was the most brilliant member of the bar, and Mr. London, in his enthusiastic reminiscences of him, says: "It took somebody better than a Philadelphia lawyer to equal our backwoods Blackstone." Dr. Jenks, his father, and also father of the present Solicitor-General of the United States, George A., was then one of the associate judges. Judge Evans was in the banking business, known at that time as a "shin-plaster office". He issued notes invarious denominations up to a dollar, which were made current in the community, and when any one had accumulated these to the amount of five dollars or over, they were redeemable at the counter of the Judge,who gave large bills in exchange. Mr. London, who was in the mercantile business in a limited way, enjoyed the benefits of Evans's bankingsystem.
In 1840 Mr. London removed from Brookville, where he had been engagedin lumbering, to Perry township, and there cleared a farm purchased of C.C. Gaskill; and in 1843 he settled in Bell township in the midst of his lumber operations. Six years later he located permanently in Winslow township, near the site of his present residence, on the farm now occupied by Fulton Henry. He contracted matrimony again in 1846, by leading to the altar of Hymen Mrs. Sarah (Wilkins) Rea, who succumbed to the inevitable in 1878.
The record of T.B. London's life is that of an active and useful man- useful to himself, his family, his community, and his county. Asidefrom clearing and working many farms, his lumber operations, in whichhe was a pioneer on Sandy Lick Creek, gave employment to hundreds of men at a time when the less venture some and poorer classes needed just such an enterprising spirit to lead them. He opened up roads, often at his own expense, leading into remote districts, thus creating settlements and adding to the population and welfare of the county. In his later years his capital has erected a score of houses in Reynoldsville and Winslow Township, and was invested in a mercantile enterprisein the town mentioned for about eight years. His life has ever been identified with the best interests of the local public, vigilant at all times, and always ready to do good. He served one term as auditor of the county. To the church, too, he has been kind, giving generously to every creed that knocked on his heart, asking for help. His character and career may be summed up in this sentence: Honest, liberal, true, enterprising, companionable, intelligent, sagacious - and what more can be expected of a noble man!

Carpenter Winslow Sr and family moved to Penna around 1815 ( maybe 1818). Came up the Susquehanna River to Clearfield by building a bridge across the river. Then they went down the Wilderness Road to Punxsutawney and became crop farmers. Sons Reuben, then Carpenter and Ebenezer returned to Benezette area to work in the lumbering business/ farm.

(from George Porter Bio) " Carpenter Winslow and that portion( 5 sons-Reuben, Carpenter, Ebenezer, Joseph, James) of the family that came with him to Pennsylvania made the trip from Maine to Baltimore on a sailing vessel. From Baltimore they came up the Susquehanna and finally arrived at Clearfield and from there they journeyed to a place near Punxsutawney known as the Winslow settlement. It was no easy task to travel over the rough and rugged roads, sometimes mere paths, some three hundred miles. They had a hard struggle for a time living principally on game until they cleared sufficient land on which to raise some grain and vegetables. Reuben, Carpenter, and Ebenezer settled at Benezette while Joseph and James remained in the Winslow settlement."

Brother Reuben is sited usually as the founder of Benezette Township and held many offices in both Benezette and Jay Townships. Carpenter's son George gave the name to Winslow Hill. Carpenter was a farmer. Reuben started both the Winslow Colliery (coal mines) and the Winslow Colliery Railroad spur in Benezette area.

He cleared about 30 acres of land,which, in 1812 he sold to Jacob Burge. He then moved up stream on Bennett's Branch to the mouth of Hick's Run where he cleared a farm and lived the remainder of his life. Levi was thirty-five when he moved to the area and had the honor of making and running the first raft ever taken down the Sinnemahoning. He is listed in the tax assessment for the Sinnemahoning district of Clearfield County in 1814. In 1823 his house was designated the polling place for Gibson Twp. He is listed in the 1810 and 1820 Gibson Township census.

Following John Jordan, he settled on the Second Fork in 1806 and then up the Bennetts Branch.

The following information was taken from "History of that part of The Susquehanna & Juniata Valleys Embraced in the Counties of Mifflin, Juniata, Perry and Union and Snyder." Rev. Charles Beatty was an early minister in Pennsylvaniaand printed a book entitled "The Journal of a Two-months' Tour." The August 21, 1768 entry mentions a Levi Hicks, who may or may not have been the father of this Levi Hicks. "After sermon we rode eight miles to Capt. Pattersons' where we were kindly received. Here we met with one Levi Hicks, who had been captive with the Indians from his youth, and we being desirous to know their present situation and circumstances, he gave us the following relation, that about one hundred miles westward of Fort Pitt was an Indian town, called Tuskalawas, and at some considerable distance from that was another town named Kighalamegha." In the August 25, 1768 entry: " Sat out from Captain Patterson's this morning, as early as we could, on our journey, accompanied with Joseph, the interpreter, and Levi Hicks (mentioned before as being many years a prisoner among the Indians). I understood he was considerably impressed under the Word yesterday, and therefore was desirous to here more sermons."
Taken from the History of the Early Settlement of the Juniata Valley,complied by U. J. Jones in 1889 and published by Harrisburg Publishing Co. Gersham, Moses and Levi Hicks and their family were held captives by the Indians for six or seven years. It is believed that after their release they went to Water Street, Huntington Co. and settled there. Gersham and Moses did not marry. Levi, the elder, brought with hima half breed as his wife, by whom he had a number of children. They all settled at Water Street and commenced the occupation of farming. Subsequently, Levi rented from the Bebaults, the tubmill at or near the mouth of Spring Creek. When the Indian troubles began in the spring of1778, he refused to seek safety in Lytles or Lowry's Fort which was across the river from the mill. On May 12, 1778 he was shot and scalpedby Indians at his home. His wife, a son of about 10, and three other children survived. Another child, a daughter of about 3 or 4 was also scalped but survived only be remain feeble-minded the rest of her life. I've entered this story because the boy of 10 mentioned may possibly be our Levi Hicks. Rebecca: According to the 1850 Census she was living with her son, John. Thus Levi probably died before that time.

(Linda Valetta) I desperatley need to get back to Belfonte to search the early land records of Clearfield county that may give us a hint of where our Levi and Rebecca came from.. I last find him in the Census in 1830 and not 1840. He was listed there as between the ages of 50 & 60. The next item we have on him is that the elections of Fox and Gibson Twp was moved from his home in 1831 to the home of Thomas Liggett. After this He and Rebecca give the power of attorney to Richard Gellat in 1835. From this I figure he died between 1835 & 1840.

The next year, 1806, Jordan was followed by Levi Hicks, Andrew Overturf and Samuel Smith, the two former having families, and the latter being a single man. Levi Hicks settled between the First Fork and SecondFork, on ground afterward known as the Shaffer farm, now occupied by Maiden Wykoff. He here cleared about thirty acres of land, which, in 1812, he sold to Jacob Burge, who had settled near him a year or two previous. Hicks then removed up the Bennett's branch to the mouth of Hicks' run, and took up land which is now occupied by his descendants. His son, John, is still living, a man seventy- eight years of age, whose memory is still clear touching the history of those early days. John was eight years old when the family first moved here, and has beena resident of this county over seventy years. Levi, the father, was thirty- five years of age when he moved to the country, and had the honor of making and run-fling the first raft ever taken down the Sinnemahoning.
-------------------------------------Early Settlers
(From internet rootweb eilenn)There were no settlements in what is now Cameron County until 1804, when a hunter named John Jordan and his five (or four?) sons built a solid tent of rough hewn logs at Second Fork (known as Driftwood today). These were the taxable inhabitants of the Sinnemahoning District (Lawrence Twp, Clearfield Co) in the year 1814:

Hicks Run (aka Hicks Hollow, Little Hicks Run, or Jack Hicks Run) is named for the Levi & Rebecca Hicks family, who
settled on the flat in 1812. Most of the branches of this run are in Shippen Township
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Lumber was king along the Sinnemahoning stream for many years. Levi Hicks, who first came to Gibson Twp in 1806, is said to be the first white man to build and run a raft down the Sinnemahoning, ushering in the lumber era. Rafts of lumber were floated down the Sinnemahoning to the Susquehanna River, where they made their way to Marietta, PA or asfar as Philadelphia. The trip took a week or more and was not very profitable until the canal to Lock Haven was completed. Once the canal was finished, settlers made high profits on their goods because of lower freight rates, and they had more access to finished cloth and othermanufactured goods. And once the railroad came through, business boomed. Sinnemahoning itself had three stores. In Driftwood, J.O. Brookbank had the good fortune of being the only store in town. By 1900, the store was so large that it had its own railroad siding.

TRUMAN B. LONDON, late of Winslow Township, a resident of Jefferson county for over seventy years, was eminently worthy of the place accorded him in the ranks of its best citizens. In his death the township and county lost one who could always be depended upon as a valuable factor for progress in all directions, for though he was a man who devoted himself to his private affairs and domestic interests, who had no ambition for the power of public position, no selfish aspirations of any sort, yet he did more than the average toward the uplifting of goodstandards in his community. In all this he walked true to the lines laid down by honorable ancestry. Both his great-grandfathers, Edward London and Samuel Callender, natives of New Jersey and Virginia, respectively, were soldiers in the Revolutionary War, and it is interesting to note that the latter's descendants have erected a monument to him at Scott, Lackawanna Co., Pa.
Isaac London, grandfather of the late Truman B. London, was born in New Jersey, son of Edward London, who was of English descent. He died in 1843
in Luzerne county, Pa., where his father settled and spent the remainder of his
life. Isaac married Sarah Callender, a native of Connecticut, daughter of
Samuel Callender, above, and she survived him a few years, dying in 1846
in Jefferson county. They were the parents of nine children, seven sons and
two daughters, the sons being: Truman Beaman, Nathan, Isaac, Hiram, Samuel,
Stephen and Edward, all of whom located in Jefferson county.

Truman Beaman London, second child of Isaac and Sarah (Callender) London, was born Oct. 11, 1808, in what was then Luzerne (now Lackawanna)county, Pa., and there acquired a very manhood he engaged in lumbering, which he followed for seven years on the north branch of the Susquehanna river, manufacturing lumber and marketing it at Harrisburg, Columbia, Marietta, Port Deposit, and other points along that stream. He was so engaged in his native county until 1837-38, when he came to western Pennsylvania, locating at interested in large lumbering operations, but in 1840 removed to Perry township, settling on a farm he had purchased of C.C. Gaskill, which he cleared and cultivated. In 1843 he made a new settlement, in Bell township, in the midst of his lumber operations, and in 1848 made a permanent home in Winslow township, on thefarm afterwards occupied by Fulton Henry, near the site of the residence which was
his home at the time of his death. He was a pioneer lumberman on Sandy Lick, cleared and worked several farms, for eight years was a partner of Dr. J.C. King in a mercantile business at Reynoldsville, and by his building operations there and at Rathmel was largely instrumental in the material development of both laces, having constructed a numberof residences in those villages. His activities gave employment to many at a time when industrial operations were needed to attract a substantial class of settlers. He was public-spirited as well as enterprising, the roads he opened in new or remote districts, often at his own
expense, having been an important feature of the advancement of the county
in pioneer days. He served one term as auditor of Jefferson county. Mr. London
lived retired for some time before his death, which occurred April 11, 1891, on
his farm in Winslow township. Though not active in any church, he gave
liberally to all denominations in his neighborhood.

On Sept. 13, 1831, Mr. London married Sallie Maria Slosson, a native of Luzerne county, who died June 23, 1842, the mother of six children:Martha Jane, born July 28, 1832, is deceased; Eliza Maria, born March9, 1834, married Andrew Johnson, of DuBois, and had a family; Truman Beaman, Jr., was born March 10, 1836; Isaac H., born Sept. 3, 1838, following merchandising in Reynoldsville and later was a farmer in Winslow township; Moses Slosson, born Jan. 31, 1841, died in infancy; Mary Ann, born May 29, 1842, died young. For his second wife Mr. London married Mrs. Sarah Rea Wilkins, who died May 2, 1878. They had no children.

Truman B. London (2) was born March 10, 1836, in Blakely township, Luzerne now Lackawanna) county, and lived at home until he was thirty years old. He was allowed such educational privileges as were possible and led an active life from boyhood, assisting his father in the various important operations which the latter handled so successfully. Whenbut fourteen years old he began to raft umber and continued lumberingfor twenty-five years, giving it up after his arriage and devoting his energies to agriculture. For a number of years he lived on the farmin Winslow township where his death occurred Aug. 2, 1909, and here his widow is still residing. He is buried at Reynoldsville. Mr. London was a man of intelligent mind, with a discriminating appreciation of the best things in life which made him a leader in his own community, where he was held in the highest esteem. With his wife he held membership in the Soldier Run Baptist Church at Reynoldsville, and he also belonged to the P.O.S. of A. camp at Rathmel. He was a Democrat, following in the footsteps of his father, who cast his first vote for Andrew Jackson, the son giving his to Buchanan.

General Notes: He was a carpenter by trade. His youngest son Moses, Jr. in speakingof his father to a cousin George W. Slauson as late as Easter Day 1918 said:

"My father was a man of some ability in the acquiring of property, but lacked the faculty of taking care of it. He was swindled out of a farm in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, for which he had taken JudgementNotes, having through slack of business methods failed to have them recorded, which resulted in a complete loss of the porperty as he neverrecovered one penny through the transaction. He was possessed of a considerable genius in the writing of verse, which he uttered of time in the exploiting of his friends and acuqaintances, but it was of no profit to him."

Reported in the Reading Eagle Daily Friday August 15, 1873 DEATH OF JACOB BRUMBACH
We yesterday announced the death of the old and respected citizen of this city and county, Jacob Brumbach, in his 93rd year.

The subject of this notice was born in Amity township, this county, in 1770. His parents, Hermanius (Hermanus) Brumbach and Catherine Pott, were also born and raised in the same township, and were people universally respected for their integrity and uprightness. Deceased was one of twin brothers, both of whom lived until 1801, when deceased's twin brother died, aged 21 years. Mr. Brumbach, in 1809, married Dorothea Bear, of Exetor township, and one year later, in 1810, moved over and took possession of the property at present known as Schartz's mill,on the other side of Schuylkill. At this place carried on the manufacturing of domestic cotton and woolen goods, and did an excellent trade. In the year 1812, in order to increase his business he moved down along the Antietam creek, Exeter township, near the Black Bear tavern, when he continued the same trade. In 1815 he built a very fine residence opposite his factory where resided and continued his business until1843, and one year later, in 1850, he took up his abode with his son,Jacob B. Brumbach, North 8th street, and continued there up to his death, nearly 23 years.

His first wife died in 1822. By this union, nine children were born. On March 14, 1824 he remarried, the second wife being, Susan Gumbert, whose parents resided above Kutztown. By this marriage 4 children wereborn, making 13 in all. His second wife died May 26, 1836, since which time until his death deceased remained a widower. In 1867, Mr. Brumbach received an apopletic stroke, which very nearly resulted in his death. In 1868, it is thought, he received another slight stroke, at which time he fell and fractured his hip. This laid him up and confined him to his bed from which he never arose. During the 5 years of his confinement, all to within a few months prior to his death, his appetitewas very good and his constitution appeared very strong. Thursday, August 7th, it is thought he received another slight stroke, from which time he commenced sinking, and so continued until his death, when his soul passed silently away from earth.

Mr. Brumbach was one of the oldest citizens of this community, and from the nature of his business he gained a large circle of friends and acquaintances. He laid the foundation of what was at one time of the most flourishing branches of trade in this county. We have reference tothe St. Lawrence Woolen mill, in Exeter township, that were burned about the close of the late rebellion. They were built by son Wm. Brumback, and were largely engaged in the manufacture of cotton and woolen goods. Deceased was a thorough businessman, and never mingled in politics to any extent except to hold several minor township offices from time to time. He was treasurer of the Schwarzwald Church congregation for a number of years.

There are at present four of his children living, three of the first wife and one of the second. There are forty grand children and thirty-five great grand children; the entire family being people held high inthe estimation of their friends and acquaintances. The announcement of the funeral may be found eslewhere.

General Notes: After Catherine's death, Michael moved to Indiana County, PA with 3 of his children ( Eliza, Jacob, and Amy). Then ca 1840 he moved to Clearfield Co ( now Elk Co) Here he married Mary English Thurston. Around 1839 is when Michael took ownership of what would be the Ovell farm in Weedville. At that time it was Caledonia, Clearfield Co., PA. Michael probably could not write and if he was an immigrant from France (?) his accent may have made Ovel sound like Obel. In 1820 census of Nicholson Township his name was Michael Obel.

Marriage Notes for MICHAEL OVEL and CATHERINE FELTON: m. March 12, 1817,
from Vol. X of Proceedings & Collections of Wyoming Historical & Geological Society

Mary English Thurston has been widowed 3 times before and had 5 children by her marriage to George Thurston.

64. James Winslow,37 son of James Winslow and Elizabeth Carpenter, was born on 6 Aug 1725 in Freetown, Bristol County, Mass, died on 16 Nov 1802 in Farmington, Franklin Co., Maine at age 77, and was buried in Farmington, Franklin, Maine.

General Notes: Excerpts from Winslow Memorial regarding James Winslow(1725-1802)
James and his brothers who lived in Portland received a large tract of land from their father in Broad Bay Maine and moved their in 1752.Indian troubles forced them to move to Pittston area as one of the first settlers in the fall of 1760. His wife Anna and daughter Sarah were the first white females in Pittston. His son Jonathon was the first white child born there (3/23/1761). the Winslows and McCauslands built a log cottage which they occupied together.
James Winslow was a drummer in the fort at Falmouth as a young man. He converted to the Friends of Society and abhorred all aspects of war refusing to serve in the Revolution due to his Quaker principles. But he made 50 paddles for (Benedict) Arnold's expedition. They moved to the back of their farm to avoid British parties traveling by.

Who's Anna's parents??:
In the Winslow Memorial James Winslow with James and Henry McCausland left Broad Bay and moved to Gardinerstown ( Pittston). The McCausland's and Winslows occupied the same cottage. James Winslow married Anna McCausland Huston, a widow of Isaac Huston and daughter of maybe James and Sarah McCausland (per William Huston of Falmouth book).
From McCausland documents, James McCausland of Falmouth on 12/18/1729sold part of his property to William Huston Jr. and signed by James and Mary McCausland (his wife). Which James is Anna's father Was James married to Mary then Sarah or vice versa?

"James Winslow was the first of our inhabitant who joined that [Quaker] society. He came from Plymouth colony before 1728."

The HISTORY OF INDUSTRY, MAINE by W. C. Hatch, page 820 states James and Anna Winslow and daughter, Sarah, sailed from Falmouth in the fall of 1760 to the mouth of the Kennebec River and up the river to their destination (in Gardinerston, now Pittston, Me.)


Anna "Granny" (McCausland) Huston Winslow was very energetic. She was the first white woman ashore in Pittston on 3/23/1760. She gave birth to Jonathan Winslow, the 1st white child born in Pittston. She was much relied on in case of sickess. "Granny W" was only physician in whom early settlers believed.

James and Anna were married on 5 July 1753 in Falmouth. They are buried in Farmington.



James Winslow was a wheelwright by trade. and his family were among the first settlers in Gardinerston, now Pittston, Me. It is said that Mrs. Winslow and her daughter Sarah, aged six years, were the first white females known to have landed on Pittston soil. Mr. Winslow and family, with others, met at Falmouth, now Portland, in the fall of 760, and sailed from thence to the mouth of the Kennebec River, and up the river to their destination. Here they built log-huts in which to spend the winter. Jonathan Winslow, born in March, 1761, was the first child of white parentage born in that town. Mr. Winslow worked on the mill which was built in the spring following their arrival. For his labor he received a deed of ninety acres of land from Dr. Gardiner, which had been previously cleared by the Indians. It is said that this is now the north-western lot in the town of Pittston. After the completion of the mill at Gardinerston, Mr. Winslow went to Damariscotta and worked on the mill at that place. While he was away Mrs. Winslow and her daughter did all the work on the farm, such as planting corn, potatoes, etc. They took a batteau and repeatedly crossed the river and went to the Great House, owned by Dr. Gardiner, where they obtained dressing which they applied to their land, and in the fall, as a part of their crop, harvested forty bushels of corn. Mrs. Winslow, or " Granny Winslow," was the only physician in whom the settlers believed, and she frequently went long distances to visit the sick. When a young man, James Winslow was a drummer in a fort at Portland, but he became converted to the principles of the Friends. He carried out his Quaker principles, and refused to serve in the Revolutionary War. When his son Jonathan was drafted his father did not object, but the distress of his mother caused the lad to escape by pleading Quaker education. His son James, Jr., an early settler in Industry, was born in Pittston, April 28. 1774. In 1787 the family moved to Farmington Falls, and were among the early settlers in that town.

66. Reuben Colburn,39 son of Jeremiah Colburn and Sarah Jewell, was born in 1740 in Dunstble, Middlesex Co, Mass, died on 16 Sep 1818 in Pittston, Kennebec, Maine at age 78, and was buried in Riverside Cemetary, Pittston, ME.

General Notes: In 1763 came to Pittston/ Gardinerston/ Kennebec area after the end of the French and Indian War. As a staunch well-known Patriot he played an important role as a shipbuilder in the 1775 Arnold- Quebec campaign ( now the Arnold Trail is a state historical site). He promised and built over 200 bateaus-flat bottom boats for carrying heavy loads-for Benedict Arnold's troops. His house in Pittston/ Agry Point is still used by the genealogy society there.

Maj. Reuben Colburn, built some of the first vessels on the Kennebec River. He was a man of great energy and earnestness of purpose, in illustration of which it is related by Hanson in his history of Gardiner and Pittston, that it was the major's custom, throughout the Summer months, to take his family in a canoe every Saturday, and paddle down toGeorgetown, thirty-five miles, to attend church, returning on Monday.Hanson also relates that on the breaking out of the Revolution, the few surviving warriors of the Kennebec Indians were persuaded by Paul Higgins, who had lived among them from childhood, to join the Americans. Headed and guided by Maj. Colburn, they went, to the number of twenty or thirty, in their canoes to Merry Meeting Bay, whence they proceeded on foot to Cambridge, arriving Aug. 13, 1775, and tendered their services to Gen. Washington. Washington, however, did not fancy the introduction of their style of warfare into the contest, gave them but little encouragement, and they returned.
Maj. Colburn built the bateaux for transporting Arnold's troops abovetide water, in his expedition to Quebec, and accompanied the expedition; but as late as 1852 neither he nor his heirs had ever been paid for these boats, though they had repeatedly asked Congress to reimbursethem. ( It is somewhat interesting to read excerpts regarding these boats in which Benedict Arnold was not pleased with the quality of the workmanship nor materials used- Colburn used what he really had available which may not have been the best and did complete this projectin haste as probably was required )

From a 1975 article written by Cecil Pierce , Arnold Expedition Historical Society: Reuben Colburn- unlike the other great landowner across the river from him, Sylvester Gardiner- was a staunch Patriot and well known as such to those who were dedicated to freedom in Bostonand other posts. He was destined to be, next to Arnold, the most important man as regards the expedition to Quebec. For without the driveof this man there would not have been built the crucial bateaux. In 1759, the formidable Wolfe had taken the fortress of Quebec with a resulting treaty, in 1763 signed by France giving up Canada. This was the end of the French and Indian War. The Redman was no longer a menace to Maine lands. It was this year and undoubtably the cessation of hostilities threat brought Reuben Colburn ( later he would be Major Colburn) and others to Gardinerston on the Kennebec. He settled on 250 acres on the east side of the river where the town of Pittston is today. Here he proceeded to build a shipyard and back of it a fine dominating home which stands today much as it was originally built. Indeed he must have been a man of extraordinary energy and prevision for in the next ten years he was to acquire additional land by the square mile. In August of 1775 Colburn made three trips by horseback to Cambridge where planning for a Quebec campaign was going on. He acted a a consultant on all matters relative to the route, type of conveyance, andavailability of provisions on the Kennebec. On the third trip he brought home with him an order the likes of which few men would have had the courage to accept; an order to construct 200 bateaux complete with800 oars, 400 paddles, 400 setting poles, all to be, hewn by hand. When completed the bateaux placed end to end would reach up the river amile. In about 20 days Arnold and 1100 men would be in Gardinerston for them. The journey home which was to take two of his precious days must have been laden heavily with thoughts of accomplishing this tremendous task of construction. Where would he get the 20,000 board feet of long wide boards? Would the sparce working population, half of them Torys rise to the occasion? It would take thousands of hand made nails; were they or the iron to forge them available? Of one thing he was certain this bountiful region had unlimited supply of virgin pine and oak needing only to be cut and sawed but would the water power mills on the little Nahumkeag Stream and Togus Stream up river have enough water running in late summer for operation? We today only know thathe was successful in mastering all problems for when Arnold and the expedition arrived the boats were ready. ( In addition he assembled food supplies for the trip and sent shipbuilders along for repairs) After the Revolution this influential man was a very successful shipbuilder and lumber producer, active as a town officer and the Region's first representative to the General Court. Today the granite shaft of his monument towers above the little graveyard across the highway from his home much as he did to his contemporaries in life.

Reuben Colburn served on a Committee of Safety: Committees of Safety, executive bodies established by towns and legislatures in colonial America, just before the American Revolution, to direct the struggle against British rule. As the conflict between the colonies and Great Britain deepened, many colonial towns created local Committees of Correspondence, Committees of Inspection, and Committees of Safety. TheCommittees of Inspection were charged with the task of checking and reporting violations of the boycott of British trade initiated by the First Continental Congress. The Committees of Safety for corresponding on a local scale to the Continental Congress. One of their tasks was supplying the Continental Army with men and equipment.
The first Committee of Safety appointed by a colonial legislature wasprobably that established in October 1774, by the first Provincial Congress of Massachusetts, to function as a general executive body for the entire colony.
The decision of the Committee of Safety established by the second Provincial Congress of Massachusetts in February 1775, to occupy Charlestown and Dorchester Heights, led to the Battle of Bunker Hill. The New York Committee of Safety in the same year seized British arms and stores and virtually compelled the British to evacuate that city. When state constitutions were adopted, these committees were replaced by constitutional bodies, but many functioned unofficially during the AmericanRevolution.

According to the cemetery records of Riverside Cemetery in Pittston, Maine, Reuben Colburn served in the Revolutionary War.

" The History of Gardiner, Pittston, West Gardiner, Maine 1602-1852" by J.W. Hanson, published by William Palmer, 1852
"November 9, 1763, Reuben Colburn [Wiscasset Records] received 250 acres on the eastern side of the river. The conditions specified were substantially the same as those attached to the other settlers' lots. Hewas required to build a house 20 feet square, and 7 feet stud; was toreduce 3 acres to tillage in 3 years; he or his heirs were to occupy the land for 10 years, and work two days each year on the ministerial lot. Jan. 1, 1773 he bought a lot five miles by one half a mile, of James Bowdoin, excepting one lot of 100 acres, granted to John Shanny. Maj. Colburn built some of the first vessels on the Kennebec, and took an active part in the Revolution. His location was near Agry's point."Page 71

" On the breaking out of the Revolution, the few remaining warriors of the Kennebecs gathered at Gardinerston, where they were persuaded by Paul Higgins, a white man who had lived among them from childhood, to join the Americans. Headed and guided by Reuben Colburn, they went,to the number of twenty or thirty, in their canoes to Merry-meeting Bay, whence they proceeded to Cambridge on foot, and arrived August 13,1775 (Drake, B, III. p. 156) They were not much encouraged by Washington, and returned. Swashan, (Ibid) a chief formerly distinguished around the western part of the State, but who lived in 1775 at St. Francois, came to Cabbassa with the Canibas, designing to aid the Americans. He told Washington that half of his tribe, and nearly all of the Canadians, were ready to fight against the English, who seem to have made efforts to obtain their favor and that of the Canadians, in vain. In 1795 there were but seven families, and there is not one of all that noble race now on the earth."
----------------------------------------------------------------
From Bertha Colburn memoirs: Major Colburn was quite prominent in the war of the Revolution. He trained a regiment of Indians and took them to Cambridge for Washington, but Washington would not ac-cept their services, fearing treachery. He (Major C.) was always a friend of the Indians, and they would come to the house and spreading their blankets on the floor, would lie down to sleep before the open fire.

He was accustomed to go in an open boat thirty or thirty-five miles to church to Georgetown. The first Ecclesiastic Council met in our house. A church was built where the Chapel now stands.

Major Colburn, besides his ship yards, owned a mill up in the country. He received very little for building the bateaux for Benedict Arnold. Washington wrote in his diary "Paid Reuben Colburn 9 lbs." The major rode on horseback through the woods to Washington to collect the money. He arrived to a day's journey, and heard of Washington's death.

Later, the Colonial debts were outlawed. Rev. Mark Trafton, who married a cousin, tried to get the amount owing us. The papers are on file in the Archives in Washington. If James G. Blaine had been elected President, there might have been some likelihood of the debt being paid, for he and my father were friends.

Among the officers who came with Arnold on his march to Quebec was Colonel Bigelow, for whom Bigelow Mountain is named. Aaron Burr was also a guest of Major Colburn. All of the officers stopped in the house. The soldiers built ovens around outside.

Major Colburn was financially ruined by the embargo of 1812. A large ship belonging to him rotted on the stocks. All his debts were paid by his son David-my grandfather-for it was considered the right thing to do, to pay one's debts. Grandfather had eight children (I haven't my records here but I know there were at least eight) and died when my father, the youngest, was only three years old. How Grandmother brought up her children and kept the place intact is a marvel to me.
At George Washington's request, Major Colburn built, in September 1775, 220 bateaux (small boats) to be used by Arnold's men to travel up the Kennebec River in their march on Quebec..

There is an unverified legend that while Aaron Burr was a guest of Major Colburn, he and a beautiful Indian maiden, Jacataqua, went hunting and brought home a bear and a cub. A great barbecue was held at Fort West-ern (Augusta) and all of the people round about attended. Colonel Agry from Agry's Point, Squire Oakman, the Major, etc. Burr took Jacataqua to New York and she died later, having borne him a child. Burr was about 19 years of age at that time.
Before 1779, the area that includes the present-day towns of Pittston and Gardiner was called Gardinerston (or Gardinerstown) after Dr. Silvester Gardiner, the Kennebec proprietor who established the settlement there. On February 4, 1779, the Massachusetts legislature passed "An Act incorporating the Plantation of Gardinerston . . . into a town by the name of Pittston." Pittston was named for the family of John Pitt, the justice who introduced the bill for Pittston's incorporation. On February 17, 1803, all of Pittston lying west of the Kennebec River was incorporated as a separate town called Gardiner.

Major Reuben Colburn built the bateaux and guided Benedict Arnold on the ill-fated expedition to Quebec. His story is told by Great....Grandson Mark A. York in Patriot On The Kennebec: Major Reuben Colburn And The March To Quebec 1775: His Life And Times.

72. Levi? Hicks was born in 1746 in Grand Cove Valley, PA and died on 12 May 1778 in Wyoming PA at age 32.

General Notes: Not verified; See Levi Hicks (1771-1850) notes regarding father- parent relationship. married an Indian half breed whom he met while he was held captive by the Indians for 10 years. Had 5 children.

The lands lying at the mouth of Spruce Creek were warranted June 4, 1762, but were not patented until many years afterwards. On the east side of the creek the Bebault brothers erected simple mills ( around 1775) in the colonial period, and made other slight improvements. During the Revolution this property was occupied by Levi Hicks, who operated the mill. He was a brother of Moses and Gershom Hicks, both unmarried men, who had their home at Water Street. Levi had a half-breed for a wife and several children. This fact led him to believe that he would have immunity from Indian attacks, and he subsequently paid no heed to the warnings of his neighbors, who urged him to go to some fort, in the spring of 1778, when Indians were reported to be about. Onthe 12th day of May that year (1778) he started his mill as usual, early in the morning, and then went to get his breakfast. While at the house he procured a needle and thread to mend his moccasins, and returning to the mill seated himself in the door to do this work. He soon heard rustling of leaves near the mill, but having no idea that Indians were about, he imprudently, and contrary to his custom, went to seewhat caused it, leaving his wife in the mill. While advancing towards the spot from whence the noise issued, he was shot through the heart. Mrs. Hicks heard the gun and ran down to the river, crossed the fording, and sped with all haste toward Lytle's Fort. On the way she met a horseman, but could hardly make him understand her, but when he comprehended the story he quickly rode to the fort. Mrs. Hicks then for the first time saw her boy, about ten years old, following her, which recalled her thoughts to her children. Arriving at the fort, the men there refused to go in pursuit of the Indians, on one pretext or another until the next day. They then found Hicks scalped on the spot where he fell. A little girl who had ventured out to see what the Indians were doing to her father was knocked on the head, scalped, and left for dead. The Indians left without entering the house, into whichthe little girl managed to crawl, where she was found the next day sitting in the corner and gibbering like an idiot. Her face and head were covered with clotted blood. Two children were lying on the floor crying, and the infant in the cradle was moaning for nourishment. Thescalped girl lived a number of years, but, not having had medical attendance, became feeble-minded. No clue of the Indians could be obtained, nor did any other depredation follow the murder of Hicks.

From the History of Juniata Valley by U J Jones
P. 253 story of Gersham Hicks - Indian Guide Interpreter, brothers Moses, & Levi.
Levi, the elder, brought a half breed wife and a number of children &settled in Water St. He rented from the Beboults, the tubmill at or near the mouth of Spruce Creek. Indian trouble began in 1778. He was urged to go to Lytles or Lowry's Fort, but he refused. He was murdered and scalped. When his wife saw what was happening, she ran towards the fort. Her 10 yr old son followed her, but she didn't think of the restof the kids till after she got to the fort. One little girl went outside and saw the Indians scalping her daddy. She cried and asked what they were doing. They scalped her, too, but she lived for some years. She was not right in the head because the Indian had hit her in the head with his hatchet and fractured her skull. The rest of the kids wereok though they were left alone and starving for awhile.
Previously, the brothers Hicks had been captured by the Indians and taken to Detroit. They were in Captain Blairs Command.
P 494 Marcus Hulings died in Tennessee in 11 17 1802. He married Massy Dougherty 12 24 1764. They had 8 children. The 5th one, Samuel, born 1780 d. 1854. married first Elizabeth Hicks and had 5 children.

Marriage Bond dated August 11, 1779 for Edward London and Sibilla Sharp in the County of Burlington, NJ. The co-signer of the Marriage Bond was Isaiah Hunt.
In 1799 Edward was shown in Salem Twp., Wayne CO, PA where he took up400 acres of land. In 1804 he sold out and removed to Providence TWP, Luzerne CO, PA (now a portion of Scranton). Edward died there in 1816. Son Isaac was administrator of his estate in March 1816. Page 180, Vol. 10, 'Proceeding & Col. of Lycoming CO Historical & Genealogical Soc., Wilkes-Barre, 1909.

Per Edwin Huff, Jr., graves of Edward and Sybillah along with sons Jonathan and Isaac are in upper Blakely (now They are outside the wall and opposite a church,originally "The Callendar Memorial Church". The graves are unmarked,probably due to Sybillah's Quaker heritage.
This is probably our Edward: 1810 Census: Providence Twp., Luzerne Co., PA -

(Per Fred London, 7/98, date of 3/2/18l6 is actually the date Isaac was appointed administrator for his father's estate.) A year later on March 25, 1817, his land was divided into 4 equal parcels to be distributed to the heirs. Soon after on May 7, 1817, Isaac bought out the entire interest of his sister, Elizabeth Callender for $500. No legal division of the land among the heirs was made until November 27, 1835,at this time Sybillah was still living.

General Notes: Notes from"Samuel Callender- Patriot in the War of Independence" by W. D. Callender
Samuel Callender was one of the young men who inspired by the American Cause turned his back on loyalist Virginia parents and the comforts of his plantation home and joined the army. He probably served about three years after which he turned to Conneticutt (home of a fellowsoldier) where he met and married Martha Slosson ( brother of his soldier friend). His name has been enshrined at Valley Forge upon a bronze plaque along with other heroes (in the Washington Memorial Bell Tower).

His father was supposedly an ardent loyalist. Samuel is alleged to have become estranged from his family due to his participation in the Rev War. Other Am Rev info S40814 Continental Line (PA) and VA line; Enlisted in VA & PA After war lived in Wallkill, Orange, NY 1818 resident of Greenfield, Luzerne, PA married an aunt of David Slawsonat Stamford, CT 1778 received 100 acres from VA for Rev War service( did not accept and went to Conneticutt )

Per Samuel Callender--"Enlisted in 1776 for a term of two years in the standing army and in the Ninth Virginia Regiment commanded by Colonel George Mathews in Captain John Hay's company of foot in November 1776-October 1777" Was at the taking of Burgoyne after two severe battles at Saratoga NY and that in November they marched back to Whitemarsh Hill where they joined Washington's army. Participated in the Battle of Monmouth and other parts of the New Jersey campaign of 1778 which followed the winter at Valley Forge.

Samuels parents are a mystery to me also. Have been unable to find them in any Va. site available.
I do know that they had a farm in what was Loudon County at that time. Loudon County was the fartherest west. Of course also at that time Va. streached as far west as what is now western Ky. and part of what is now Tenn.
Samuel was offered a land grant for his war service from Va. 28 Feb. 1797,100 acres , but he refused it as it was in what is now Western Ky. and at that time was the wilderness with few settlers.
In the booklet Samuel Callender Rev. War Soldier from Virginia by Willard D. Callender,it refers to the "Callender Plantation". Samuel enlisted in Loudon Co. so the assumption is thats where the plantation was. It also states generally that the family came from Scotland but these recolections were hazy. It further states that its doubtful he descended from the New England Callenders.It states "I have no doubt that all Callenders whether the name is spelled this way or by one of the several variations , have a common origin in the town of Callendar in Scotland. the booklet has about a page and one half on the N.E. Callenders.
Samuel is now buried in the Scotts Valley Cemetery outside Blakley Pa. He was originally buried in a cemetery in Blakley.

He is buried outside of Blakley Pa.,Scotts Valley Cemetery, near Scranton. I( Bruce Smith) have visited his grave several times, and took pictures. On his marker are the following--SAR marker,DAR flagholder,Rev.War flag holder,Society of the descendants of Washingtons Army at Valley Forge marker.

He was described in the booklet "Samuel Callender Patriot in the War For Independence " by Willard D. Callender as one of the 200 men knownas Life Guards who protected The General,all being over six feet or more tall.He served the cause with

After one year in the army Samuel Callender returned for a visit homebut his displeased and loyalist father refused to see him. He never returned home again. Samuel Callender was one of the soldiers in the Continental Army which suffered through the Winter of 1777 and 1778 atValley Forge. He as a corporal was one of the two hundred men known as "Life Guards" who protected the person of General Washington. (He may also be the same Samuel Callender who served as Corporal and Sergeant in Captain William Henderson's company of Colonel Daniel Moprgan'sRifle Battalion Continental troops. )

Valley Forge: It is believed by many that Valley Forge is the birthplace of the American Soldier::::" . . . you might have tracked the army from White Marsh to Valley Forge by the blood of their feet." - George Washington

Few places evoke the spirit of patriotism and independence, representindividual and collective sacrifice, or demonstrate the resolve, tenacity and determination of the people of the United States to be free, as does Valley Forge. Here, despite setbacks and hardships, the Continental Army under General George Washington's leadership built upon itsgrowing military competence. Through intensive training, the army honed its skills and became a professional force that marched on to victory over the British and secured America's independence in 1783.

Valley Forge, historic site, where American Revolutionary leader George Washington kept his winter quarters, in Pennsylvania, in Chester County, on the Schuylkill River, about 32 km (20 mi) northwest of Philadelphia. Valley Forge National Historical Park encompasses the historicvalley where some 12,000 men under General George Washington encampedfor the winter on December 19, 1777. After the American defeats at the battles of the Brandywine and Germantown and the subsequent Britishoccupation of Philadelphia, Washington chose Valley Forge for his winter quarters because it was defensible and strategically located to enable him to protect Congress, then in session at York, Pennsylvania, from a sudden British attack. Because of lack of supplies from the commissary department of the Continental Army and the bareness of the surrounding countryside, the men were without adequate shelter, food, or clothing and lived in crude huts built by their own hands. Many died ofstarvation and cold, and at no time were more than half of them fit for active service. The period was one of the darkest of the American Revolution. It was at Valley Forge, however, in February 1778, that Baron Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben trained, disciplined, and reorganizedthe army. On June 19, 1778, Washington abandoned his camp at Valley Forge in order to pursue the British across New Jersey." ( MicrosoftฎEncartaฎ Online Encyclopedia 2000)

The name of Valley Forge has come to stand, and rightly so, as a patriotic symbol of suffering, courage, and perseverance. The hard core of6,000 Continentals who stayed with Washington during that bitter winter of 1777-78 indeed suffered much. Some men had no shoes, no pants, no blankets. Weeks passed when there was no meat and men were reduced to boiling their shoes and eating them. The wintry winds penetrated the tattered tents that were at first the only shelter. The symbolism of Valley Forge should not be allowed to obscure the fact that the suffering was largely unnecessary. While the soldiers shivered and went hungry, food rotted and clothing lay unused in depots throughout the country. True, access to Valley Forge was difficult, but little determined effort was made to get supplies into the area. The supply and transport system broke down. In mid-1777, both the Quartermaster and Commissary Generals resigned along with numerous subordinate officials in both departments, mostly merchants who found private trade more lucrative. Congress, in refuge at York, Pennsylvania, and split into factions,found it difficult to find replacements. If there was not, as most historians now believe, an organized cabal seeking to replace Washingtonwith Gates, there were many, both in and out of the Army, who were dissatisfied with the Commander in Chief, and much intrigue went on. Gates was made president of the new Board of War set up in 1777, and at least two of its members were enemies of Washington. In the administrative chaos at the height of the Valley Forge crisis, there was no functioning Quartermaster General at all. Washington weathered the storm and the Continental Army was to emerge from Valley Forge a more effective force than before. With his advice, Congress instituted reforms inthe Quartermaster and Commissary Departments that temporarily restored the effectiveness of both agencies. Washington's ablest subordinate, General Greene, reluctantly accepted the post of Quartermaster General. The Continental Army itself gained a new professional competence from the training given by the Prussian, Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben. Steuben appeared at Valley Forge in February 1778 arrayed in suchmartial splendor that one private thought he had seen Mars, the god of war, himself. He represented himself as a baron, a title he had acquired in the service of a small German state, and as a former lieutenant general on the staff of Frederick the Great though in reality he had been only a captain. The fraud was harmless, for Steuben had a broad knowledge of military affairs and his remarkable sense of the dramatic was combined with the common touch a true Prussian baron might well have lacked. Washington had long sensed the need for uniform training and organization, and after a short trial he secured the appointment of Steuben as Inspector General in charge of a training program. Steuben carried out the program during the late winter and early springof 1778, teaching the Continental Army a simplified but effective version of the drill formations and movements of European armies, proper care of equipment, and the use of the bayonet, a weapon in which British superiority had previously been marked. He attempted to consolidatethe understrength regiments and companies and organized light infantry companies as the elite force of the Army. He constantly sought to impress upon the officers their responsibility for taking care of the men. Steuben never lost sight of the difference between the American citizen soldier and the European professional. He early noted that American soldiers had to be told why they did things before they would do them well, and he applied this philosophy in his training program. His trenchant good humor and vigorous profanity, almost the only English he knew, delighted the Continental soldiers and made the rigorous drill more palatable. After Valley Forge, Continentals would fight on equal terms with British Regulars in the open field.

9th Virginia Brig. Gen. Peter Muhlenberg Most of this regiment had been captured by the British during the Battle of Germantown on October 4, 1777. Fragments of this regiment were represented at Valley Forge

"On Saturday, Sept. 14, 1889, the descendants of Samuel Callender to the
number of one hundred and seventy-five met at the Scott Valley Baptist Church,
for the purpose of dedicating a monument to the memory of one who came to that part of the country and settled at what is known as Green Grove. Samuel Callender was not only a soldier and a patriot, but during the days of peace that followed the Revolutionary war was a man of progress, and by his energy that part of the county soon became one ofits brightest spots. He was born in Virginia in 1756. His boyhood days were the same as others at that period of our nation's existence, and but little is known of his early history save that he was ever ready to strike for the right and never shrank from any duty that he was called upon to perform. He left a name covered with honor and an example that yet today is set before those who have the name of Callender as a model after which to pattern. The monument is the workmanship of Burns & White, of Tunkhannock, is of granite and bears the following inscription:

"Samuel Callender, born in Virginia in 1756, died in Green Grove, Pa., March 12, 1830. One of Washington's body guard during the Revolutionary war. Mary Slosson, his wife, born in Connecticut 1775, died March12, 1836."

"The monument is a very neat bit of work, and is a fitting tribute totwo worthy people who did all that they possibly could for the good of the community in which they lived and died. "The exercises were held in the church and the following was the programme:

"Hymn of Praise..........................Callender Choir
Reading of Scripture..............Rev. D.J. Williams
Prayer.....................................Rev. Wm. Miller
Patriotic Song.............................Callender Choir
Reminiscences of a Patriot of the Revolutionary
War..................................Rev. Nathan Callender
Reading names of those who donated money for
its erection.
Sword of Bunker Hill....................Clark Lowrey"

"Short addresses were made by Revs. N. Callender and D.J. Williams, E.S. Miller and William Miller. These exercises closed the literary part, and the
audience was dismissed to indulge in a grand basket picnic and informal visiting
among the different branches of the family which had gathered from far and
near. The number was increased by the presence of many of the people of Scott,
Green Grove and other small settlements, until it reached nearly two hundred and fifty. At two o'clock they assembled in the cemetery, and there the closing exercises were held. After the benediction was pronounced the group was photographed, and they were soon on their way to homes many miles apart."
---------------------------------------------------------
Much of the information about this family line was taken from Mr. Alfred Lister's records which are now in the Geroge H. Catlin Memorial Museum in Scranton, PA. He was historian of the Callender Reunion for many years.
Library of Congress: "Marriages of Some Virginia Residents" 1607-1800 vol 1, Dorothy Ford Wulfeck, F225.W8, 1986,. Section #2 page 7: Samuel Callender 1756, VA, died 1830 Luzerne Co, PA, American Revolutionary War from VA, married, 1780, Martha Slosson (or Slawson) 1755-1836, DAR # 65 391, 79 625, 84 935.
Info taken from material gathered by the Callender Family Assn. - Oral family history says Samuel was the son of the elder Samuel of VA (probably Loudon Co.) He believed his grandfather had come to America from Scotland about 1700. Samuel's father was a member of the Church of England and an ardent Tory. This led to permanent estrangement of father and son because Samuel had strong sympathy toward the American revolutionary cause. Grandson Nathan remembers Samuel as nearly six feet in stature, heavy build, expressive black eyes, persistent and resolute where right or wrong were concerned. In 1776 he joined the armyin Loudon Do. VA, Ninth VA Line. His years of service are well documented. He spent the terrible winter of 1777 at Valley Forge in a unitknown as the Life Guards - they were to protect General Washington. Samuel went home with a fellow soldier, David Slawson and courted his younger sister Martha. They were married in 1778/80. They settled inWallkill, Orange Co., NY. All 7 of their children were born there. By 1818 they had moved to Luzerne Co., PA with some of their then grown children. Samuel applied for a pension at age 62 (Apr 14, 1818) a pension of $8.00 per month was awarded. In 1820 they were living with son Stephen and family in Greenfield Twp. At that time the need for pension was reviewed and he was disqualified for further payments because of his excess property holdings (including 50 acres of land in Greenfield Twp). Son Stephen died in 1821 leaving 4 small children and Samuel and Martha lived out their lives with the family. Samuel was 74 years old when he died, He was buried in the Callender Burial Ground in Blakely, a short distance north of Scranton. Martha died 6 years later and was also buried there. Over a half century later, funds were raised within the family to move the couple's remains to a donated plot in the Scott Valley Cemetery at Montdale. This was done on Sept 18 and 19, 1889. A beautiful monument was erected, the dedication of which was part of the program of the 1st Callender Family Reunion held in September 1889. Many Callander descendants were in attendance. The Rev. Nathan Callendar was one of the grandchildren they lived with, spoke at the memorial service. The family is listed in the 1790 Census of New York, Westchester Co., Poundridge Town: Samuel Callender, 1 male age 16 and over, 3 males under age 16, 4 females. (the youngest daughter had not been born). Samuel's name is enshrined at Valley Forge, PA on a bronze Plaque.
----------------------------------
I recently came across a paper saying that Samuel Callender's certificate for money owned for service in Virginia regement at the end of the war was received by Eppa Hubbard. I have been trying to explore hisline to find if there is a connection between Samuel Callender and the Hubbard family as their must have been some basis for giving it to him, and wondered if any of you have anything in your files along those lines. I am excited to have at least a new possibility for finding the family of Samuel Callender!!!
I am also interested in the documentation for Samuel Callender's having been at Valley Forge (or one of Washington's body guards). I have been to Valley Forge site and they do not seem to have a record of Samuel being there and have not yet been able to find any documentation for that. I know his name is on the DAR memorial but understand that those names were placed by family members for a fee and do not what or any documentation was required to substantiate the claim.

General Notes: Notes about David Slawson written by Dr. William Bell Slauson to hiscousin George W. Slauson about their grandfather.

You wrote me as to what I remember of our Grandfather's capture and imprisonment in the Revolutionary War. You know they were called "Minute Men" at that time, who stayed at home and attended to business, only when the "Red Coats" came around in organized bands through the country, when an alarm would be sounded for each one to shoulder his musket and go without a commander, to shoot down as many "Red Coats" as hecould, from any hiding place he could find. Our grandfather was one of these, being about 45 years old. He saw from behind a stone wall acompany approaching, into which he discharged his gun, and immmediatly began to reload and I think had completed the task when he saw fivemen standing on the wall with their guns pointed at him. Whereupon he threw down his gun, and saying, "I surrender as a prisoner of war". But one of the number swore he would kill him, because he had justkilled his comrade and to this end he directed his bayonet at grandfather's belly, but he (grandfather) turned so suddenly that the weapon did not reach his vitals but plowed its way along through the muscles and came out at his side. Another bayonet thrust, he (the enemy) struck him in the forehead, at or near the temple, (I think twice) and then turned the breech of his gun and gave a blow that split the scalp for the length of two or three inches, when one of the Red Coats told him to let him alone or he would kill him, saying, "He is a good fellow and not made to be killed."

He had five wounds, but I am unable so say where the fifth one was. They were pronounced mortal by the surgeon at the "Sugar House" where he remained for six months in the midst of the exhalations of smallpoxand fevers and where many died, yet he was spared to beget more children, or you had not been born: for your grandfather was not born for fifteen years afterwards. It is a noteworthy fact that grandfather had never had the smallpox and escaped its attach in after life, thoughthey were reeking with it in the "Sugar House". In regard to the time of the removal of David (my grandfather) from New Canaan, FairfieldCounty, Conn., to Salem, Westchester County, New York; it must have happened in the year 1789. Then in 1793 my grandfather moved from Salem to the town of Wallkill, then Ulster County, but now Orange County,where he put up a log cabin, where he remained till his wife died; but she did not die at home as she went on horseback to see her friends, left behind at the time of remova, and never returned, for she sickened and died among her old firiends. Then it was that grandfather gave up the land to my father and his brother David, b. 1769, and the land that he had purchased concluding that he would not be able to pay for it. But meanwhile his daughters, Esther and Prudence, had been married, Esther to Michael Vail and Prudence to Joshua Sayer, (the grandfather of Mrs. Amanda Brooks of Elmira).

The death of the grandmother caused a general breakup, and the then youngest sister, two years old, went to live with her sister, Prudence,and stayed there until she married (to William Christie), and the other members of the family, I think were "farmed out" between my father (Nathan) and cousin Lemuel's father (David, born 1768). My Uncle Samuel (father of Masseen) was with my father six years; for he told me so as late as 1849. This in the town of Erin, where he died sixteen years later.

After the breakup, grandfather returned to New Canaan, Conn., his native town, and married again a wife who bore him a son and a daughter,(Rufus and Jemima); but whether he lived in Conn. when she died, I do not know; but I do know from my eldest sister, Katie Godfrey, thatRufus came to my father's house to live when about six years old, afterwards going to my uncle David's (born 1768) with whom he learned carpentering, as my uncle ws both a farmer and a carpenter. What immediate movement grandfather made after the loss of his second wife, I never knew; but from hearsay, he married a third time and moved into a neighborhood in Orange County quite remote from the place he gave up to my father and Lamuel's. I cannot tell the distance, but it was above twenty miles, certainly. They called it "Pochue" and I have now and then seen the name in the papers; but I was told by anybody that he hadbeen there. My father used to tell me that it was in the town of Warwick, and was malarial in atmosphere, producing many chills and fever,of which desiase the foundation was laid for something that proved fatal. It was on the 7th day of May in 1805 thaat he died, 68 years, three months and 22 days old, according to my father's statement -- justtwo months and seven days after I was born. If what I have stated benot correct, my informers were incorrect, for I state the matter as Iheard it. There can be no doubt about the fact of our grandfather's dying at Pochuc, Orange County, New York, but I suppose "Not a stone tell where he lies.".

You and cousin Lemuel seem anxious to hear more of me than I know, and I would gladly tell you more, if I knew more. Indeed it does not worry me becauseI am a "link between a silent minority and a living andinquisitive majority" seeking information of the past. It gives me much pleasure to commly with any requests in that direction. But I bear in mind the fact that I am ignoble by nature in the light of my standing before God; and niether honorable "blood" can exalt me, mor ignoble blood depress me; therefore I can only say with hope:
"Mean, though I am, not wholly so,
Since quickened by Thy breath:
O, lead me whereso'ere I go,
Through this day's life or death."

As to the metal and moral standing of our grandfather, I can say but little, since I myself know nothing. Cousin Gabriel Sayer could remember him well, though he must have been less than ten years of age whengrandfather died. He said that his connection with his Slauson put more in his blood than he derived from his paternal grandsire, yet it flattered me not into the belief that I myself profited by such a transfusion of blood.

Of one thing I am certain -- taht both my father and grandfather hada love of mimicry, and odd comparisons; as, saying one could accomplish a thing, "through living to be so old that the moss would grow on his heels". Then again, the comparison of a poor grain cradle to "an old jack knife tied to a thorn bush" as my father told his father did,when the grain flew from the "fingers" of his cradle. "Whew", he said, "I would as lief have an old jack knife tied to a thorn bush. My grandfather never professed religion, but I never heard of his uttering a single work of profanity. Had he been addicted to that evil practice, he would have undoubtedly said "damn" instead of "whew" when thegrain flew from his cradle. But in fact, my father told me that his father never "cursed".

Notes and reminiscences of Lemuel H. Slauson of Middletown, New York

My father's father was a native of Danbury, Fairfield County, Conn.I have a few reminiscences given by my father in regard to the War ofRevolution, my father then being about ten years of age. His father being a soldier during tht great struggle, he remembered distinctly the burning of Danbury Mills, there being a batle near there during thetime. The thurnder and booming cannon and whizzing of firearms, the smoke of the burning mills, and powder with missles whizzing through space on their deadly mission, fairly darkening the sunlight. The fearful forebodings of a mother with a family of helpless children, knowing as they did that the husband and father was in deadly conflict, cast an indescribable gloom over their minds that none but those that have passed through such experiences can realize. The Red Coats being the strongest, the Americans were driven from the field. My grandfather and three others, who somehow became sparated from the others, werepursued by a detachment of British soldiers, loaded their guns as they ran and sent back their compliments to their pursuers in a pour of cold lead. After reloading and firing a number of times, while passing a clump of bushes they were surprised by four or five British soldiers who leaped bhind the bushes with loaded muskets and fixed bayonets, demanded their surrender. Seeing their helpless condition, they surrendered as prisoners of war. At this time one of the Red Coats, knocked my grandfather down with the butt of his gun and was about to dispatch him with a bayonet, declaring that he had killed one of his fellows, a companion with a higher sense of honor, took the incensed and would-be murderer by the collar sternly ordering him to desist, telling him at the same time that he was acting the part of a coward and that if he laid hands on his prisoner again he would run his bayonet through him, reminding him that even if the fallen man had shot his comrade, t'was the fate of common warfare. The four prisoners were marchedto the will of their captors and imprisoned in an old coffee house, literally alive with smallpox. After remaining there about three months, my grandfather and a comrade succeeded in making their escape, the other two having been removed to some other place of confinement. After getting out of their filthy prison, they made their way to the EastRiver. There being no way to cross but to swim, being somewhat weakened by their prison life, the comrade of my grandfather not being a good swimmer, at first, declined to make any attempt to buffet the waves, but after some delay spent in considering the danger of recapturing, finally concluded to venture; so they plunged in and as his companion seemed to waver, my grandfather swam around him several times before reaching the shore, but at length succeeded in crossing safely. Mygrandfather's family not having heard from him in three months, thought him dead. I think after a brief rest, he returned to the army, butwhether he stayed until the close of the war, I know not.

My father's mother (my grandmother) maiden name was Ferris. She had one brother, whom I remember seeing around the house, and his name wasSamuel Ferris. But to return to my father's family. My father was born in Danbury, Conn. He married three times. His first wife was Fannie McClain whose parents came from Scotland. She had four sisters whom I always called Aunt. The eldest, Nancy, married Bryant Durand, ofwhom Elder Cyrus Durand is grandson. The next in point of age, was Lydia, who married Daniel Moore. Mrs. Maria Everetts, a very old womanstill living in Middletown, is the only one of my mother's family still living. The next was Fannie, the first wife of my father, to whom were born four children.

General Notes: The early home of this old and honored family of Pennsylvania was in Switzerland. This family has been identified with the interests of Berks county, particularly in the manufacturing line, since prior to the Revolutionary war. Hermanus Emanuel Brumbach arrived in America about 1770, probably through the port of Baltimore. There is a tradition that he was a silver miner in Switzerland.The assessment for Amity Township, Berks Co., Pa., for 1779, shows that he was a "weaver" and owned 5 cattle. He was also a farmer, and was later assessed in Oley Twp.

The cemetery site is on the west side of Rd 662 in Amityville Township, Berks County. On the 1996 map road 662 is also called Old Swede Road in Amityville, and further north in Oley Township it's call Pleasantville Road. The cemetary at the intersection between Weavertown Rd and 662 is on the grounds of St. Paul's UCC (United Christian Church?).The picture above shows the church in the background, thus easier to find the grave when at the cemetary. In the same area is a Brumbach Street and the old Brumbach house and still some of the remains of the old weaving mill operated by the Brumbachs. Brumbach Street is a short street that starts at the T-intersection with St. Lawrence Ave. and ends two blocks later at an L intersection with Orchard Ct. It slopes down hill towards Antietam Creek, which was essential to the woolen mills and the factory was on the banks of the creek.

Research Notes: From David Lindsley info as with other Lindsley notes

Lindsley Corners, Fulton Co., NY: Latitude: 431022N Longitude: 0742209W

Is Ephraim the son of Jacob?
Since he is not mentioned in his fathers will, we must look at all the facts we currently have to draw this conclusion. First we must put him in Connecticut, we have the following information to do this:
1. The following paragraph was found in the Gazetteer and Business Directory of Montgomery and Fulton Counties, N.Y., for 1869-70: "BLEECKER, named in honor of Rutger Bleecker, a patentee of the town, was formed from Johnstown, April 4, 1831. A part was re-annexed to that town in 1841, and a part of Caroga was taken off in 1842. It is the centraltown upon the north border of the county. The first settlements of this town were commenced about 1800 by emigrants from New England, amongwhom were James Morse, William Rood, Ephraim Lindsley, James Landon, Samuel Shaffer, William Eglan, Frederick Mills, George Hamilton, and --------- Goodwell".
2. It states in the Wisconsin 1870 census that Ephraim son Elijah, was born in Connecticut, and since its prior to 1800, it follows the same track. This information would have probably been obtain from Elijahhimself.
3. The following was written by his grandson Daniel Hall Lindsley, found in the Business Directory of Jefferson County, N.Y. 1890: "EphraimLindsley, a native of Connecticut, located in Bleecker, Fulton County, where he died, aged 80 years." Since we know he died on 15 Dec 1844and he was 80 years old, we can say he was born about 1764, and sincewe know his parents were marry 18 Aug 1761 this would probably make him the second or third oldest child in their family.
4. The last piece of information is his son William, who died 23 Dec 1853 age 63 (Fulton County Court House, N.Y.), and is buried next to his parents in Bleecker. Since we have a record of a child name William, who was born on 16 May 1790 to Ephraim and Polly Lindsley (Lindsly)in Cornwall, CT (Records at Connecticut State Library), we can assumebecause of the age at death, that this is the same person.

From the above information, we can say it's a good bet that Ephraim was from Connecticut, and with that in mind, lets look at the following:
1. I believe he was not mention in his fathers will because of the following document, it was obtain in Bristol, CT and it states that Ephraim received a quitclaim from his father on 8 Oct 1804. Ephraim also had a brother named Jesse who did the same thing on 5 Sep 1804, this would have wrote both of them out of their fathers will. Now in Jacob's will, he left each of his three other sons three hundred and thirty three dollars and thirty four cents, and through the quitclaim Ephraim and Jesse both received three hundred and thirty three dollars and thirty four cents [quitclaim (kwit'klam'), 1. a transfer of one's interestin a property, esp. without a warranty of title. 2. to give up claim to (property) by means of a quitclaim deed].
2. In the Direct Index To Deeds where the above information was firstlocated, it states that Ephraim and Jesse are Jacob Lindsley's heirs.Land Records, Bristol Connecticut page 306
3. I believe Ephraim was very interested in moving to Bleecker, Fulton County, New York, and needed the money to purchase land. Our first record that we can find of Ephraim purchasing land in Bleecker is 7 Sep 1808, when he bought land from Anthony Bradt for $225. This is lessthan four years after he received the quitclaim.
So my conclusion as of this date, is that Ephraim was born and raisedin Connecticut and the son of Jacob and Mindwell (Pond) Lindsley.

Burial: Stephens, Cemetery 1
Note:
Mark and his brother, William arrived in America as young boys (they were of Scotch-Irish descent). It is not known if they arrived with their parents or how old they were. They may have arrived with William Harkins. William Hartley settled near Port Deposit MD. Mark stopped at Harrisburg where he married and where his first child was born, his second child was born in Northumberland. He first settled land in Hopbottom colony in Brooklyn Twp. PA as the first settler on the Frederick Bailey farm. He built a cabin in the central part of the township. MarkJr. was born here. In 1797 Mark Sr. and family moved to Lenox
Township (Glenwood) and settled on the Tunkhannock Creek, just east of where the two branches meet. His farm was still in the possesion ofhis descendents 100 years later (and probably became a part of the Gardner Greene Farm. Mark Sr. and Cathern were the parents of nine children. The estate of Mark Sr. was settled in Orphans Court in Montrose some years after his death. The first item is a request for guardians for James and Sally Hartley (minors). The second request was for a division of the lands of Mark Sr. into two tracts. The first tract consisted of 196 acres and was assinged to the eldest son, William, the second tract was of 184 acres and was assigned to the second son, Mark Jr.The Court determined that the heirs to the estate were Cathern Phillips (Cathern having remarried before 1824 to a John Phillips. All of the other children are listed except the eldest and youngest even though they were still living at the time. The 1790 census lists Mark Hartley Sr. with two males over 16 (himself and one other) and three females. In 1800 Mark Hartley is listed with three boys and two girls. On the 1810 census Cathern Hartley is listed as head of household with 9 children (three sons and six daughters), she is still less than 45 years of age. She does not appear again with the Hartley Families but maybe found as the wife of John R. Phillips on the 1820 census. Mark wasprobably less than 50 years of age when he died. His death was announced in a Wilkes-Barre newspaper on 24 Nov. 1809. He is probably buriedin the Stephens Cemetery in the south-east corner where a number of Hartleys are buried. The section of the farm deeded to William eventually passed to Layton Greene.

128. James Winslow,46 son of Job Winslow and Ruth Chase ??? Cole, was born on 9 May 1687 in Assonet (Freetown), Bristol County, , Mass and died on 19 Oct 1773 in Falmouth (Portland) , Cumberland, District Of Maine at age 86.

General Notes: James Winslow, son of Lieutenant Job Winslow, was born in Freetown, Bristol County, Massachusetts, May 9, 1687, died October 19, 1773. He moved from Freetown Mass to Falmouth, Maine, about 1728, and settled on land granted to him in 1/28, on which he was to erect a mill. He owned a large tract at Portland (then Broad Bay), which he gave to his sons. He was the first Friend in Falmouth and "lent a most important support to the doctrines of that respectable people in this neighborhood." He became a member, with Nathan and Benjamin Winslow, at a monthly meeting, May, 1751. He married (first) Elizabeth Carpenter, (second) intentions dated November 12, 1750, Ruth Gatchell, of Brunswick. Children, recorded in Freetown: Mary, June 20, 1709; Nathan, mentioned below; Job, March 30, 1715; Benjamin, June 19, 1717; Elizabeth, May 6, 1721; James, August 6, 1725; Sybil, October 3, 1727.

Accessions were made continually to the society from among the people here, particularly from that part of Falmouth in which James Winslow resided ;' preachers from abroad occasionally visited and aroused the people, and some of their own members too were early stimulated with zeal to spread their religion. In 1759 certificates were granted to Patience Estes and John Douglass "to travel on truth's account," and in August of the same year, Mary Gurby from England, and Elizabeth Smith from West Jersey, came here as traveling preachers. In 1768 a meeting-house was built by subscription near the Presumpscot river, in that part of the town which retains the ancient name, forty feet long and thirty-two feet wide, on the same spot where their first house, quite a small one, was erected in 1752.1 Previous to 1774, the Quakers had been required to pay taxes for the support of the ministry in the first parish ; but at the annual meeting in that year, perceiving the injustice of compelling persons to contribute to the support of a mode of worship from which they derived no benefit and of which their consciences did not approve, they passed the following vote: "Voted that the following professed Quakers, living within the bounds of the parish be exempted from parish rates the current year, viz: Benjamin Austin, Nathaniel Abbott, Samuel Estes, James Goddard, Benjamin Gould, Solomon Hanson, Robert Houston, Daniel Hall, Enoch Knight, John Knight, John Morrill, Stephen Morrill, Jacob Morrill, Elijah Pope, James Torrey, Ebenezer Winslow, Benjamin Wins low, Job Winslow, William Winslow, Oliver Winslow, John Winslow, Samuel Wiaslow, and James Winslow."8 None of these persons lived within the present limits of Portland, and it was not until several years after the revolution that a sufficient number had gathered upon the Neck to constitute a separate meeting for worship.1 Liberty was first granted to them in 1790 by the monthly meeting, to hold a separate meeting for worship for five months to be held at the house of William Purington.3 The brick meeting-house of the society, corner of Federal and Pearl streets, was commenced in 1795, and finished in 1796: it is two stories high and its dimensions are thirty-six feet by forty.
'James Winslow had a grant of land on Fall-cove brook, at Back Core, to erect a mill on, In 1728, but this falling within an ancient grant, he removed before 1748 northerly to the Presuropscot river, near where its course is turned noutherly by Blackstrap Hill. He died respected, leaving a large posterity, in 1773. His children were Nathan, Benjamin, James, Job, two daughters, mar. ried Hatevil Hall and James Torrey, who all joined the society of Friends The privilege of Fall brook for a corn-mill, was voted to him in 1729.
The unchanged simplicity of their dress, carried us back to the dark day when their ancestors took their lives in their hands and ventured all things for the faith, an they believed, once delivered to the saints.

• Questionable date: One Source Showed April 13, 1715 But That's Before The Birth Of James.

Elizabeth married James Winslow 46 in 1708 in Freetown, Bristol, Massachusetts.

130. James ? McCausland 47 died in See Notes.

General Notes: Name: James McCausland Birth: ABT 1724 in Fruit Hill, Finlagan Parish, Derry Co, Ireland 1 Birth: 1707 in Ireland 2
Death: 1776 in Gardiner, Kennebec Co, Maine 2 Note: The IGI entries for Henry and James suggest that these are the two brothers that left Ireland for Falmouth Maine and sired the Maine McCausland's. This has not been proved and the actual IGI entries have not been investigated. However, the time frame fits and they were recorded in Maine as being brothers. James was one of Gen. George Washington's body guards. (Source History of Kennebec Co. Maine by Kingsbury & Deyo Pub. 1892). Father: Robert McCausland b: ABT 1685 in Fruit Hill, Finlagan Parish, Derry Co, Ireland Mother: Hannah Moore b: ABT 1689 in Garvey, Ireland Marriage 1 Mary Poor b: ABT 1724 married: 3 JUL 1746in Falmouth, Cumberland Co, Maine 3

Noted events in his life were:

• Other: This Info Is Unverified..

James married Sarah McCausland.

The child from this marriage was:

65        i.  Anna Mccausland Huston


131. Sarah McCausland .

General Notes: Potential ancestors include James and Mary McCausland( MacCaslin) who in 1717 immigrated from Ireland to Falmouth Maine. They were descendents of a colony which went from Argleshire in Scotland and settled in the north of Ireland about the middle of the 17th century. They were rigid Presbyterians and fled Scotland to avoid persecution of King Charles I.

Sarah married James ? McCausland.47

132. Jeremiah Colburn,48 son of Ezra Colburn and Lucy Nelson, was born about 1710 in Dracut Mass and died after 1787 in Pittston Maine.

General Notes: According to Illustrated History of Kennebec County Maine: July 5, 1763, Jeremiah and Hannah (Varnum) Colburn came to Pittston and bought 800 acres of land on the eastern side of the Kennebec river. On May 6, 1765, he sold to his son, Reuben, 107 acres, on which the latter builtthe homestead now standing. About the time of this purchase Reuben married Elizabeth Lewis. The house is the oldest in Pittston.

This creates a couple problems on previous family history where I hadhis wife a Sarah Jewell- I'm leaving in Sarah as one wife but putting in Hannah as the preferred wife. Another problem is also that I have a Hannah Varnum as the wife of Ezra Colburn

" Settlers. - The first settlers made their clearings along the river.... In 1761, four brothers, Reuben, Jeremiah, Oliver and Benjamin Colburn, settled above Agry's, and formed a settlement then known as Colburntown. Here they built vessels, and where the late Gustavus A. Colburn resided, Major Colburn, his grandfather, constructed the bateaux for the Arnold expedition to Quebec, the beautiful growth of white oaksthat covered the bank of the river making it a most suitable spot forthe work. He was assisted in his labors by the Agrys, Edward Fuller and other, all settlers on the river.... page 712. John Taggart boughta farm, in 1773, of Major Reuben Colburn;.... Page 713. The west siteof the town, along the Kennebec river, was of the most importance in those early days. Shipbuilding was carried on at every available placealong the river; a ferry was run from near Smith's tavern, to the opposite side of the river; and the tavern itself was the central gathering place for town meetings well into the present century. On the uplands the early settlers found an abundance of oak, and in the intervales, pine, from which vessels were made, and of which large quantities were rafted to other localities. The first saw mill and the first gristmill stood at the mouth of Nehumkeag creek..... Page 713. The tax list of 1803 shows these residents-Reuben Colburn, Benjamin and Joseph Colburn, Widow Margaret Colburn, Captain Oliver Colburn.... Page 714. Town meeting had been held at the inn of Henry Smith for several years but when the old Congregational Church was sold to the town, in 1820, religious and town meeting were held in that building. This old churchwhich stood where the hearse house now stands, on G.A. Colburn's farm, was begun by Major Colburn and others in 1788, but the society was unable to finish it, and it was used as above stated until 1846 when it was again sold, and tradition says that it is now in part doing service as a barn for Mrs. E.H. Lapham, near Grange Hall.... Page 715. North Pittston---- The post village of North Pittston is beautifully situated in the northeast corner of the town and was early a central location for that portion of the community. It was usually called Colburn's Corners having been settled by George Colburn, on the land where James Crowell now resides..... In olden times Colburn's Corners was a lively center. In the school house ministers discoursed and singing schools were held....George Colburn's shoe shop was the first store established...... About 1860 Joseph G. Colburn started a store which during the war he disposed of... Page 716. Other localities----- The river road running the length of the town, is a beautiful drive through a rich, thickly settled district, with many historic spots on either side. Here was Colburntown, above Smith's tavern, where Jeremiah, Reuben ( who was such an earnest Congregationalist), Oliver, and Benjamin Colburn settled in 1761 and also their four sisters--- Lucy, Sarah Elizabeth, Hannah and Rachel Colburn. Below was Henry Smith's tavern, early and opportune built, where the town meetings of old Pittston were held for so many years. The hogsheads of rum dealt out there have not been lost in tradition. Still further below was Agry's point, where Arnold's bateaux were built for transporting troops and stores up the river;and down along the street, winding with the river, cluster many otherspots of early interest.... Page 719. Civil lists--- The first pages of the original town records have been lost or destroyed. The oldest volume contains the record of the town meeting of 1782, which was held at the " dwelling house of Cap't Henry Smith, Innholder, June 6th at 50'clock in the afternoon." Reuben Colburn was the moderator at that and the two following meetings..... Benjamin Colburn was the selectman in 1782, Reuben Colburn in 1798.... Page 720. Ecclesiastical---- It issaid that Major Reuben Colburn would,on Saturdays, if the weather were suitable, take his family in a canoe and paddle them down the riverto Georgetown, thirty-five miles away, attending church Sunday and returning Monday... Page 721. A Congregationalist society was formed Nov. 2, 1812, in the east parish, at the house of Major Rueben Colburn...." Page 722.

" The History of Gardiner, Pittston, West Gardiner, Maine 1602-1852" by J.W. Hanson, published by William Palmer, 1852

"The following year, 1761, four brothers and their four sisters removed from Dunstable to the eastern side of the river and settled in whatis now sometimes called Coburntown. Their names were Jeremiah, Reuben, Oliver, Benjamin, Lucy, Sarah, Elizabeth, Hannah, and Rachel COLBURN. Lucy m. Dr. Zachariah Flitner; Sarah Elizabeth m. Maj. Henry Smith.Hannah m. Josiah French of Winthrop, and Rachel m Thomas Jackson. Jeremiah soon removed to Orono, and his daughters were the first white Americans who inhabited that place."

November 9, 1763, Reuben Colburn [Wiscasset Records] received 250 acres on the eastern side of the river. The conditions specified were substantially the same as those attached to the other settlers' lots. He was required to build a house 20 feet square, and 7 feet stud; was to reduce 3 acres to tillage in 3 years; he or his heirs were to occupy the land for 10 years, and work two days each year on the ministerial lot. Jan. 1, 1773 he bought a lot five miles by one half a mile, of James Bowdoin, excepting one lot of 100 acres, granted to John Shanny. Maj. Colburn built some of the first vessels on the Kennebec, and took an active part in the Revolution. His location was near Agry's point.
-------------------------------------------------
From Bertha Ccolburn memoirs: Jeremiah Colburn came from Dunstable to Gardinerston, as Pittston was then called, in 1763 and bought land extending five miles east and a quarter of a mile on the river. Maine was then Mass. He divided this land among his four sons, and Major Reuben Col-burn chose the location and built our house. I think the original purchase made by great great grandfather was 800 acres.

Jeremiah married Sarah Jewell 49 about 1735 in Mass.

Children from this marriage were:

66        i.  Reuben Colburn

         ii.  Oliver Colburn was born in 1744 in Dracut, Middlesex County, Massachusetts and died on 10 Jan 1788 in Pittston, Kennebec County, Maine at age 44.

        iii.  Benjamin Colburn was born in 1747 in Dracut, Middlesex County, Massachusetts and died on 18 Apr 1814 in Pittston, Kennebec County, Maine at age 67.

         iv.  Jeremiah Colburn was born in 1736 in Dracut, Middlesex County, Massachusetts and died in 1811 in Orono, Hancock County, Maine at age 75.

          v.  Lucy Colburn was born in 1748 in Dracut, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.

         vi.  Hannah Colburn was born in 1752 in Dracut, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.

        vii.  Rachel Colburn

       viii.  Sarah Elizabeth Colburn

Jeremiah next married Hannah Varnum about 1735.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Oliver Colburn was born in 1744 in Dracut, Middlesex County, Massachusetts and died on 10 Jan 1788 in Pittston, Kennebec County, Maine at age 44.

         ii.  Benjamin Colburn was born in 1747 in Dracut, Middlesex County, Massachusetts and died on 18 Apr 1814 in Pittston, Kennebec County, Maine at age 67.

        iii.  Jeremiah Colburn was born in 1736 in Dracut, Middlesex County, Massachusetts and died in 1811 in Orono, Hancock County, Maine at age 75.

         iv.  Sarah Elizabeth Colburn was born in 1750.

          v.  Hannah Colburn

         vi.  Rachel Colburn

        vii.  Sarah Colburn


133. Sarah Jewell,49 daughter of Thomas Jewell and Martha Blood, was born between 1710 and 1714 in Dunstable, Middlesex, Mass and died after 1754.

General Notes: According to Pittston History Jeremiah Colburn came to Pittston with wife Hannah Varnum and bought 800 acres on the eastern side of the Kennebec River.

This creates a couple problems on previous family history where I hadhis wife a Sarah Jewell- I'm leaving in Sarah and Hannah as his wives. More often I hear Sarah Jewell is the proper wife. Another problem is also that I have a Hannah Varnum as the wife of Ezra Colburn

Sarah married Jeremiah Colburn 48 about 1735 in Mass.

136. Josiah Keene, son of Josiah Keene and Abigail Little, was born in Jun 1658 in Marshfield, Plymouth, Mass and died between 1728 and 1732 in Pembroke, Mass.

General Notes: We have in our notes that Lydia Keen was taken into the First Church in Marshfield on 2 May 1708, and that nine of her children were baptized there on 24 October, 1708.

Josiah, Jr. and his family lived in Marshfield, in Duxbury, and perhaps in Pembroke since Pembroke was part of Marshfield until 1712. The towns of Duxbury, Hingham, Pembroke, and Marshfield are near each otherin southeastern Massachusetts and may not have kept separate records in the early days. Josiah, Jr. bought 9 acres next to his father's "range" on the southerly side of Pudding Brook, we assume in Duxbury. Another note of interest was, "Josiah Keen, Jr. and Elnathan Weston with5 others at the March 7th Town Meeting, 1709/10, entered protest against all the acts made at Town Meeting in Duxborough, Jany 30th 1709/10for dividing the town's Commons, the said meeting being continued by adjournment till the 7th of March above said."

Noted events in his life were:

• Other: Mayflower Descendent.

Josiah married Lydia Baker in 1681 in Duxbury, Mass.

Children from this marriage were:

68        i.  Hezekiah Keene

         ii.  Benjamin Keene was born on 26 Jul 1682.

        iii.  Abigail Keene was born on 3 Apr 1685 and died on 22 Apr 1715 at age 30.

         iv.  Eleanor Keene

          v.  Lydia Keene was born about 1689.

         vi.  Nathaniel Keene was born on 11 Nov 1692.

        vii.  Bethiah Keene

       viii.  Samuel Keene

         ix.  Isaac Keene

          x.  Josiah Keene was born on 27 Sep 1683.


137. Lydia Baker, daughter of Samuel Baker and Elinor Winslow, was born on 18 Feb 1660 in Marshfield, Plymouth, Mass and died after 10 Jan 1732 in Pembroke, Mass.

Lydia married Josiah Keene in 1681 in Duxbury, Mass.

138. Prince Howland, son of Arthur Howland and Elizabeth Prence, was born in 1686 in Marshfield, Mass and died before 8 Jan 1713 in Marshfield, Mass.

Prince married Deborah Barker on 13 Mar 1706 in Duxbury, Mass.

The child from this marriage was:

69        i.  Alice Howland


139. Deborah Barker, daughter of Robert Barker and Alice Snowe, was born on 7 Nov 1686 in Duxbury, Mass and died on 7 Oct 1736 in Duxbury, Mass at age 49.

General Notes: Here it is interesting to note that Prince's widow, Deborah, married Benjamin Keen, older brother of Hezekiah, the husband of her daughter,Alice. This made her not only Hezekiah's mother-in-law but also his sister-in-law. This does not seem odd when one realizes that Benjamin was 20 years older than Hezekiah, Benjamin being the first born of the eleven children of Josiah and Lydia Keen and Hezekiah being the last born.

Noted events in her life were:

• Other: Mayflower Descendent Of Richard Warren.

Deborah married Prince Howland on 13 Mar 1706 in Duxbury, Mass.

Deborah next married Benjamin Keene in 1710, son of Josiah Keene and Lydia Baker.

Elizabeth married Elisha Wadsworth on 9 Dec 1694 in Duxbury, Plymouth, MA.

176. John London, son of John Ambrose ?? London and Unknown, was born in 1728 in Maybe Little Egg Harbor, Burlington, NJ and died between 20 Aug and 27 Oct 1778 in Little Egg Harbor, Burlington, NJ.

General Notes: . Married to Weaver, Elizabeth, ca. 1752 at Little Egg Harbor, Burlington County, New
Jersey
. London, Isaiah (1) born aft. 1752 at Little Egg Harbor, Burlington County, New Jersey
. London, Joanna born aft. 1752 at Little Egg Harbor, Burlington County, New Jersey
. Married to Weaver, Elizabeth, ca. 1753 at Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
. London, Edward (1) born aft. 1753
. London, Joseph (1) born aft. 1753 at Little Egg Harbor, Burlington County, New Jersey
. London, John (2) born ca. 1755 at Little Egg Harbor, Burlington County, New Jersey
. London, Ralph (1) born 1760 at New Jersey, USA
. Died 1778 at Little Egg Harbor, Burlington County, New Jersey
Referred to as John, Jr., so likely his father's name was also John London.
First found as Private in Capt. Peter Schuyler's Company for Nov. 1760, British Colonial Service. He was taxed for 22 acres and 2 cows in Little Egg Harbor TWP, September, 1773. (p. 24, NJ Genealogist Magazine, vol. 37, #1, January, 1962). John's will, dated 20 August. 1778, mentions Edward, John, Joseph and Isaiah. Proved 26 June 1779. Inventorydone 10 October 1778 before which date he had died. Executors: Peter Wever and Joseph Wever. We know from a land transaction dated 8 April 1786 (PANB F6226, A-I, p. 122) that John, son of John, and Ralph London were brothers. So why does Ralph's name not figure in his father's will? Father John may have been a revolutionary and we know that both John Jr and Ralph were loyalists. If Ralph had already declared his allegiance to the British in 1778, it may be that his father had disowned him. Another possibility is that Ralph, the eldest, had already come into his inheritance and was independent at the time of his father's death. However, this is unlikely, given his age, born in 1760.
The Town Historian for Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey, a Mr. George Czurlanis, in a telephone conversation with Lisa Zajkowski 16 August 1997, notes that John London was a member of Capt. Isaac Andrew's Company, a colonist under General Pulaski's Legion. So this John was not a loyalist, though his children were. Mr Czurlanis believes John's remains lay in a building which is now a historical monument. The Colonial Troops were surprised by the British Troops in Little Egg Harbor, and over 40 men were in a building when the British burned it, killing them all. It is likely John later died of his wounds incurred at this time. At least he had a chance to make a will just before he died

Slawson, names Eunice Scofield b. 9 Sep 1707 of Stamford, CT as a daughter of Samuel and EuniceBuxton. But I recently read on the Fairfield County website of Early Stamford Settlers, that Eunice is the daughter of Jonathan Scofield b.1698, Stamford, and Ruth Brown, daughter of James Brown and Rebecca Ruscoe.

General Notes: From Jim Burke mini novel:::::Philip was a veteran of the French and Indian War. When Philip died, about 1770, he had seventy-five living male descendants. Philip?s oldest son Cyrus was by granddaddy.

In 1771, Cyrus and two of his brothers, together with several others from New Marlboro moved to Vermont, establishing the town of Poultney. This settlement was just getting started when the Revolution brokeout. Cryus served on the Committee of Safety for Western Mass. He was a private under Caption Zenas Wheeler?s Company, in Colonial John Ashley?s Regiment. He reenlisted in July of 1777, and served 39 days with the unit that marched to Fort Edward in New York. In 1777, Burgoyne?s army came down Lake Champlain in an effort to conquer New York. The general made a tactical blunder of invading Vermont. The men of Poultney, concerned for the safety of their families, sent their women and children through to sanctuary in various towns in Massachusetts, while men assembled to fight the British invaders. It believed that these men were at Bennington or Hubardton and fought bravely in defeating Burgoyne. After Burgoyne?s surrender at Saratoga, in October of 1777, most of the original settlers of Poultney returned to their homes there. Cyrus reenlisted again in October of 1880, for six days in Caption Adam Kasson?s Company when the unit marched north on an order issued by General Fellows in response to an alarm.

236. Jacob ?? Lindsley, son of Jonathan Linsley and Damaris Barnes, was born about 1739 in Branford, New Haven Co., CT and died on 24 May 1810 in Bristol, Hartford Co., CT about age 71.

General Notes: From David Lindsley Info in all notes
This seems to be the first spelling change in the Linsley line, whether it's intentional or not, it does seem to have changed. Looking at the land records as far back as 1785, we notice our name spelled as follows, L-i-n-s-l-e-y, but then around 1797 the spelling has change to L-i-n-d-s-l-e-y. When we look at Jacob's will, we also find the "d" included in his name, and all his heirs, this spelling of our last name is done by the person writing the will and not by Jacob himself, this is evident by the way Jacob has signed it, with his mark. Jacob's second wife Hannah also used the second spelling, this can be found in theWidows Claim where she has signed her name.
Jacob appears to have settle in Bristol, part of Farmington, CT, where he is of record in the Congregational Church as a Baptist contributing to the Southington Society (12 Apr 1780). On 16 Sep 1793 he is recorded as having a child that died, and then again on 1 Nov 1799 as having a son that died at age 20, in both cases there's no name. On 8 Jun1798, he is among those not paying tax, and then in Nov 1799 he is listed as being a Methodist. He died at Bristol, CT on 24 May 1810 age 70 years. (All from Congregational Church Records)

And, "He is a member of the Pennsylvania Society of the Sons of the Revolution on the records of Eliphalet and Ebenezer Stephens and Daniel DeWitt."

Excerpts from Letter of Holloway Stephens, c. 1875-80: I regret exceedingly that the state of my health will not permit me to be present with you at the reunion of our kindred. I assure you that it would have given me great pleasure to have seen face to face and eye to eye the descendents of Ebenezer and Eliphalet Stephens, brothers of my grandfather, upon this spot where you have this day assembled, which placehas become almost sacred to my memory, from the fact that my grandfather when a young man, came to this then wilderness country, and upon the bank of the Tunkhannock near here, built a brush heap and inscribedhis name upon a tree, which act entitled him in those days to four hundred acres of land. He, marrying in Orange County, remained there, and gave his claim to his father, who came here with your grandfathers and took possession of the claim which has been the family homestead of this branch of the Stephens family.
The Stephens family is one of the oldest families of the United States. They date their arrival here when the May Flower landed on bleak New England's shore. the captain and owner of the May Flower was a Stephens, and I have not a question of doubt in my mind but what our racedescended from his loins, which spread over the New England states, from whence our ancestors came.
What a precious body of men and women came over in that May Flower! They have made their stamp and mark upon the world's history, for they are ranked first in order, they and their descendents, in
shaping and moulding our free institutions, and the Stephens family, their acts and deeds, will compare favorably with any family that madeup the passengers of that noble old ship.
Our Great Grandfather, Eliphalet Stephens, of what I have learned of my grandfather concerning him, was a man of powerful physique, a man of undaunted courage, who knew no fear, with a mind that grasped everything instinctively,- a characteristic of our race. We see these traits of his character manifested when taken prisoner by the Indians at the battle of Wyoming. After the battle the Indians were amusing themselves by running foot-races for prizes. They were thus engaged when he asked and obtained their consent to enter the race and compete for prizes. They were running for handkerchiefs. He outran the Indians, and demanded the prize. The prize-holder told him he was a prisoner,he could not have it. He up with his fist, knocked him over, seized his prize and left the Indians. They pursued him shot him in the flesh part of the thigh which wound did not impede his progress and he came back to Orange County. Grandmother in telling me of the occurrence said she said to grandfather, "Were you not afraid the Indians would run you down and kill you?" In reply he said he could outrun any Indian that ever lived.
Our great grandmother, Elsa Holloway, of what I learned of her through grandfather, was a woman of uncommon mould. She was a Quakeress, possessing that mild manner and truthfulness
charasteristic of that sect. And such was the impress she made on her children that nearly every branch of the family must have a Holloway to keep her in loving remembrance. My grandfather never
spoke to me about his mother what he betrayed in his speech the love and respect he bore her. My grandfather, who was named after his mother, partook somewhat of the nature of his mother; a man of a mild disposition; a man of few words; an honest and industrious man. But when his rights were invaded he showed the Stephens stock in his nature. It was like awakening a lion in his lair. Woe be to the intruder. Itwas a word and a blow and the blow came first. My grandfather married Amy Cooley. Her father was a major in the revolutionary army and my grandmother said she learned to read reading grandfather's speechesmade at Albany.
They had seven children, Ebenezer, Halloway, Eliphalet, William, Esther, Amy and Elsa. And from their loins descended five lawyers, three of them the most distinguished that Orange County ever
produced; three judges, and three Legislators. My kinsmen, you need to be proud of your grandfathers. They were Revolutionary soldiers, and drew pensions to the day of their death. Their memory and fame areyour family escutcheon. May you ever, my kinsmen, prove worthy
of being descendents of such an illustrious ancestry. Mrs. DeWitt, in her family reminiscences says that the original Stephens family were three brothers; two of them settled in the New England States,
and one in the South. Alexander Stephens was a descendnet of the onethat settled in the South. I saw him in 1859, heard him speak in Congress. I knew by his beardless face, characteristic of the old
Stock of Stephens, and that strong will power he showed in his speech, that he was of our race.
My father, after marrying his second wife, who was a Pennsylvanian, left Orange County and came to Pennsylvania. I, having three motherless little sisters, left a good salaried position in the Spring of 1849, and followed them into Pennsylvania to look after their welfare. Inever have regretted that move.

Nicholson History Excerprts
The first settlement was made in Nicholson [PA] in 1785 or 1786 - theexact date we are unable to discover. The families of three settlerscomposed the whole population of the vast wilderness extending from Tunkhannock, where a small settlement had been made near Binghamton.
XXXX (Note 2) Their provision was of the simplest kind. Their flour was principally meal which had to be ground in a mortar hewn or burnedout of a hard wood stump, with a stone for a pestle. They raised a few vegetables, obtained game and fish from the forest and streams. Ofgroceries they used but little, and of that only tea, sugar and tobacco and these they journeyed to Wilkes-Barre for. Considerable maple sugar used.
About twice a year, in the spring and fall two or three settlers would go to Wilkes-Barre to do the marketing. XXXX The nearest grist-mill up to 1800 was at Wilkes-Barre. These trips usually
occupied a week or more. Going when the water was high in boats, thetrip was easy, but on the way back they often had to push the boat, especially in the creek. (Tunkhannock Creek)
A bridle-path (Note 3) along the creek and river from this place to Wilkes-Barre existed before the beginning of the present century, probably from about the time of the first settlement. XXXX
Hunting parties were organized about two or three times a year to ridthe country of the animals of prey. In the spring the first warm daywas taken to kill rattle snakes.
In the spring of 1784 or 1785 Lemnel Halstead and his nephew Samuel Halstead followed the east shore of the Susquehanna River from Wilkes-Barre to the mouth of the Tunkhannock Creek, then pursued their way along the stream until they arrived at Thornbottom - the name given to this section by the early travelers. Building a shelter they spent the summer in clearing land for a home. XXXX They returned to Wilkes-Barre, their home in the fall.-- In the spring of the following year the family of Samuel Halstead and his uncle returned with the families of Ebenezer and Eliphalet Stephens, who
had been persuaded by the glowing descriptions of this new land, to locate here and hew out homes on these rich flat lands, covered with fine hard wood timber. XXXX They came up the creek driving their cattlebefore them - their few farming utensils being drawn by oxen.
Samuel Halstead settled on the tract of land embracing the southern half of the township and the farm now owned by Benjamin E. Stevens. Ebenezer Stephens took for his clearing the section now under the tillage of his descendants Edwin, Kirk and Loren G. Stephens. Eliphalet L.Stephens commenced the hewing out of a home on the flats now worked by George Candee [Candu?], George W. Walker and Ephram Pickering, which he soon after sold to John Felton. (Note 4) Sketch of
Ebenezer Stephens family from an interview with Sarah Shibley, his grand-daughter at the age of eighty-seven years.
My grandfather, Ebenezer Stephens, was born in Orange Co. New York about 1765. (Note 5) He was married when quite young to Rachel Squerrel. I have heard my grandmother (married in 1790?) say that in moving here, the father drown a cow, the mother rode a horse with a child in each
saddle bag. On of these children was my mother Sarah Roberts, wife of Caleb Roberts, the other Mrs. Elsie Jayne wife of Samuel Jayne. Their log cabin was built near the spring opposite the residence of
Kirk Stephens. They afterwards lived on the knoll, near the residence of their grandson, Edwin Stephens, (Note 6) Eliphalet Stephens, thefather, living in the house by the spring. I distinctly recollect thedeath of my grandfather's mother (Apr. 1820. H.F.D.). I was sent to get help to lay her out and when near the grave yard two large black snakes lay across the road. I was badly scared and the grass did not grow under my feet until I reached Mr. Halstead's. I have heard the story told of "Neze" Stephens, a cousin of Ebenezer, going out one morning to kill rattle snakes, a few rods back of their house where there was a den of these reptiles. After killing 75 or 80 of these snakes, in attempting to pull one out of its hole, he was bitten on his finger. He cut the finger off but the venom had spread to his arm and he came near dying.
Ebenezer Stephens was the father of nine children four boys and five girls. The sons Jacob, Holloway, William and Ebenezer. Jacob married Anna Miller and settled at Elk Woods near Dumdaff, [?] Holloway married June Wells and lived near his brother. William married Abby
Marcy and resided on the old homestead until their death. Ebenezer married Betsy Hartley. They also had part of the farm. The girls of Ebenezer Stephens married as follows -- Sarah married Caleb Roberts, Elsie married Samuel Jayne, Polly married Woodbury Wilbur, Amy married James Coil and Abby married Jacob Felton.
Ebenezer Stephens was Justice of Peace in 1801. Eliphalet L. Stephens, (brother of Ebenezer) entered this section about the same time thathis brother Ebenezer did and settled on the tract of land now the farms of George Candee and G. W. Walker, where he resided for about ten years when he moved to Pittston. For five or six years he had his homein that town. From there he came back to this town and took up the tract of land opposite Jos. Stephens on which he lived
until his death in 1841. (The examiner has not all the names of the family correct. We have the record from the family bible so I will not copy her.)
This Eliphalet L. Stephens was familiarly known by the title of Maj. Stephens. He got this title from having been in a militia company.

Who were those 118 men that 181 years ago, came into wyoming Valley to to start new homes ? Who began the first white settlement in the Valley- which now is Wilkes- Barre ? WHOSE VENTURESOME , PIONEERING SPIRIT AND EXPLOITS WILL BE COMMEMORATED THIS MORNING ON THAT SITE BY SIMPLE CEREMONIES AND THE UNVEILING OF A MODEST MARKER? Although in later years- long after many of them have perished- every effort was made totrace the names of the orginal settlers,only 73 authenic names are known today. Many of those unboubtedly died in the Battle of Wyoming; others in defense of their newly possessed lands in the Revolutionary War.That incomplete list is fraught with interest. Countless descendantsof the band still live in the Valley.Succeding generations, along with the iflux of new blood, helped to raise the first raw settlement and surrounding territories to a community of prosperity and wealth; and many of the descendants in Wyoming Valley bear those names to day. The Colonial Dames Society, Wyoming Valley Chapter, which is presenting the marker to the community- has invited any persons desiring to pay homage to those men, a partial list which appears below, to participate in the rites this morning at 11. It feels that is is adivsable that these places of historic interest be preserved before another generation. Speakers will be Mayor Con McCole, and Wesley Woodruff, local Historian.Dr. Lovisa I. Blair, secretary of the Colonial Dames Society will unveil the marker and Mrs. Charles P. Elliot, president, will turn over the marker into the keeping of the General Hospital, within whose grounds the site is located.

General Notes: Mark Stratton and his brother Emanuel, who left Market Harborough , Leicestershire for America in 1702...and settled (finally) in Evesham Twsp. , Burlington Co., New Jersey...lived,raised family there,and isburied there ....came from Market Harborough,Leicestershire. The Market Harborough source from a handwritten entry in Bible belonging to Mark Strattan's daughter (Jean Strattan Norcross) and scripted inher hand in the Bible, on the event of his death 3 April 1759, where she specifically states his birthplace as Market Harborough.

MARK STRATTON lived in Evesham Township, near the present town of Medford, New Jersey. October 8, 1713, he married Ann Hancock, daughter of Timothy and Susannah (Ives) Hancock. His marriage is found on the Haddenfield monthly meeting records.
May 16, 1716, Mark bought 120 acres of land of Felix Leech, a part of which he sold to his brother Emanuel in 1723. In 1755, besides hishomestead farm, he owned several other tracts of land, which by his will he divided among his five sons. He lived to see all his children married into good old Quaker families of the community, and settled in homes of their own, not far from the paternal roof. Among his descendants, now found in almost every part of our country, are stories of his devout Christian character, and noble, manly appearance, and of the sweet beauty of his wife, and her sisters, "the Hancock girls." According to the record left by "Grandmother Cowperthwaite," Mark died April 3, 1759, aged 67 years, and was buried "in a pieceof ground by the new schoolhouse." This piece of ground became the Friends' graveyard at Medford, and many of Mark's descendants are buried there. The exact spot of Mark's last resting place can never be known, but it is greatly to be desired that his many descendants should contribute toward the erection of a tablet in this burial ground(which still belongs to the Friends and is kept in good condition), inscribed with an appropriate inscription to his memory.

372. Joseph Ferris, son of Peter Ferris and Elizabeth Reynolds, was born about Aug 1657 in Stamford (Now Greenwich), Farifield, CT and died on 7 Apr 1733 in Stamford (Greenwich Now), CT about age 75.

General Notes: 2.1) JOSEPH FERRIS) was born (June?) August 20, 1657(?) at Greenwich (Stamford)CT and died April 7, (1727?)1733/36 at Stamford CT (will dated March 31, 1726, proved May 4, 1736). He was chosen as a "selectman"for Stamford in 1701 and served 7 years.

There is little other information about him available, except for hisappearance on various lists. On 14 Mat 1679, John Holly "set over" toJoseph land in Greenwich which the town had earlier granted to John. His name appears on the Greenwich voters list of 1688; the tax list for 1694-95, where he was taxed on an appraised estate of ฃ154; and the 1701 tax list with an appraised estate of ฃ72.02.06.

Joseph died in Stamford (now Greenwich) probably around April 1736; his will was probated on 4 May of that year. That will, written 31 March 1726, provided:
" In the Name of God Amen. I Joseph Ferriss Senr. of Stanford in ye Colony of Connecticut being in health & of Sound mind & memory yett knowing yt it is appointed for men once to dye do make & ordaine this my Last Will & Testament on this Thirty first day of march anno dom 1726 which is as followeth: first I Commend my Soul to God who gave it hopeing in his mercy through Jesus Christ for ye pardon of my Sins and my Body at my decease to a Comly Buriall at the discretionof my Execrs hereafter Named Nothing doubting but at the ResurrectionI Shall Receive it againe Through the mighty power of Christ my Redeemer & Respecting the Worldly Estate which it hath pleased the Lord to Intrust me with I dispose of in manner following.

& finally I do hereby Revoke & disannull all other Wills by me made and Confirm this to be my Last Will and Testament.
In Witness Whereof I have here unto put my Hand & Seal in Stanford the date first Within mentioned."

When the will was presented for probate on 4 May 1736, the court had some difficulty establishing whether it should be admitted. Unlike most wills of the time which were written shortly before the testator's death, ten years passed between the date Joseph wrote his and his death. As a result, the witnesses to the will "could Not Give a particularacct Whether yt ye sd Testator did sign or seal or pronounce or had his Right Reason" to execute his will. To avoid problems, all the heirsagreed to abide by the provisions of the will as though it had been admitted to probate.

Noted events in his life were:

• He had an estate probated on 4 May 1736 in Will Probated.

373. Mary Hoyt, daughter of Joshua Hoyt and Mary Bell, was born about 22 Dec 1664 in Stamford (Now Greenwich), Farifield, CT and died on 15 May 1739 in Stamford, CT about age 74.

General Notes: Some believe this Mary Hoyt, married Joseph Webb, however there is nothing in extant records to prove the connection and yet another unsupported claim says that Joseph married "Mary Smith". The Hoyt Genealogy does not say one way or the other. Information in this writing says she married Joseph Ferris and has there been placed based on the claim levied in "A Ferris Family Tree" (1995-Revised 1998), by James Gary Ferris. Chapter 2:25]. Research into this problem continues in 1998.

Mary married Joseph Ferris on 12 Dec 1686 in Stamford, CT.

416. Isaac Newton " Immigrant" Levan, son of Daniel Levan and Marie Beau, was born in 1700 in Hockenheim, Amsterdam, Holland, died on 7 Apr 1786 in Exeter, Alsace Township, Berks Co, Reading, Pennsylvania at age 86, and was buried in Levan Family Cemetery, Exeter Twp, Berks County.

General Notes: Levan Family Book, by Warren Patten Coons says: "The LeVan Family were among the refugees who fled from France to Holland, probably after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes (1685). Family tradition says they were manufacturers of brocade and taffetas in their native country,and that they were of considerable wealth" , also Rev. A. Stapleton, in his "Memorials of the Huguenots in America", pub. in 1901, & now out of print, says,--"About 1715 four sons of the refugee (Daniel LeVan) set out for Pennsylvania. They were Abraham, Isaac, Jacob & Joseph,the latter of whom died at sea. These were followed in 1727 by their bro. Daniel, & all of whom settled in the limits of Berks County (Pa.), also "Morton L. Montgomery, in his "Historical and Biographical Annals of Berks County, Pa.", pub. 1909, says, p 608, --"The family (Levan) was founded in America by three bros., Jacob, Isaac, & Abraham, whofled from their native land in 1715 to escape persecution & came to Pa."

"Our line descends from Isaac LeVan, second son of Daniel and Marie Beau LeVan." ( "Genealogical Record of the LeVan Family" by Warren Patten Coon, 1927.) Isaac was born in 1700 in Amsterdam, Holland. He and his brothers Jacob and Abraham arrived January 9, 1729 on the ship "Mary Gamby". Isaac died in 1783 in Exeter/Alsace Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. (Source: "Annals of Oley Valley in Berks County, Pennsylvania" by Rev. P.C. Croll.)
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph LeVan set out for Pennsylvania in 1715. Isaac settled in what is now Jacksonwald, Exeter Township, Berks County. He was probably the most well-to-do of the four pioneer brothers, owning over 1000 acres of land, including numerous lots in Reading.He was associated in business with the celebrated Conrad Weiser of Reading and Womelsdorf, Pennsylvania, who, for so many years was interpreter and intermediary between the Pennsylvania authorities and the Indians, preventing many uprisings of the latter. Together, Weiser and Isaac LeVan secured the original property for the congregation of the oldest Reformed Church in Reading. Isaac's niece, Esther, daughter of Daniel LeVan of Maxatawney Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania, marriedConrad Weiser's son, Benjamin, who lived in Heidelberg Township, Berks County, and Isaac's own daughter, Judith, married Samuel Weiser. Nogreater factor in the early settlement of Pennsylvania existed than Conrad Weiser, save William Penn, and it is of note how closely allied the Weiser and LeVan families were." (Source: "Genealogical Record of the LeVan Family" by Warren Patten Coon, 1927, Pages 8-9.)

Morton L. Montgomery, in his "Historical and Biographical Annals of Berks County, Pa.", published 1909, says, p. 608,--"The family (LEVAN) was founded in America by three brothers, Jacob, Isaac and Abraham, who fled from their native land in 1715 to escape persecution and came to Pennsylvania . . ." On pages 1048 and 1052 he also says these threebrothers came to America "in about 1730, this fact being established by the record of land grants made to him (Isaac) bearing the dates 1731, 1734, and 1737-38, as well as grants made him along the Schuylkill river, this land aggregating in all over one thousand acres, most of which was in Exeter Township, (Berks Co., Pa.). Some of the property has remained in the family ever since." Again, on p. 1066, he says,-- "Jacob LEVAN . . . came to America in 1717 with his two brothers . . .". Both Rev. A. STAPLETON and Mr. Morton L. Montgomery agree as to thedate of arrival of the fourth brother, Daniel LEVAN, namely, 1727. Naturally, for the State of Pennsylvania first began to keep record of its immigrants in 1727, and the name of Daniel LEVAN stands third on the list that numbered thousands, as witness the Pennsylvania Archives in loco. See also page 7, "Names of Foreigners of Penna., 1727-1808", by William H. Egle, late Librarian of the State of Pennsylvania.

"In the summer of 1727 Daniel LEVAN embarked at Rotterdam in the goodship
William and Sarah', Captain William Hill. The ship touched portat Dover, England, and then started on the long voyage to Philadelphia, where it arrived early in September . . . There were upwards of three hundred persons on the ship, of which 117 were males over sixteen years of age, and of this number sixty-two were ill on board at the time of arrival, and four had died on the voyage. Those who were well signed the Declaration, and the sixty-two, who were ill, were signed by the Clerk of the Board of the Provincial Council held at Philadelphia,September 21, 1727. Among the latter so signed was that of Daniel LEVAN." (See p. 1190, Montgomery's "Hist. & Biog. Annals of Berks Co., Pa., 1909).

Messers. STAPLETON, Montgomery and Egle all drew much, if not all, oftheir LEVAN data from the researches of the late Rev. Franklin Klein LEVAN (No. 2109), one of the Founders of the Pennsylvania-German Society. As the names of Jacob, Isaac and Abraham LEVAN, brothers of Daniel, do not appear in the record lists of arrivals after 1727, it is only logical to conclude they must have arrived here before that date. As to the "about 1715" or "in 1717" statements of STAPLETON and Montgomery, I presume they followed the data of Rev. F. K. LEVAN, who, in turn, must have followed family tradition. This is not unlikely, as the Rev. LEVAN was born a mere one hundred years subsequent to the arrivalof his progenitor, Jacob LEVAN, one of the four brothers.

The four pioneer brothers, and the one sister, Anna Elizabeth (No. 7), settled within the confines of Berks County, Pa.--Abraham in Oley, Isaac in Exeter, Jacob in Maxatawny Twp., as also Daniel and the sister Anna Elizabeth.

The first of the family to come to America was Isaac Levan, son of Daniel and Marie (Beau) Levan, who was born in Holland in about 1700. Hecame to America in about 1730, this fact being established by the records of land grants made to him bearing the dates of 1731 and 1734 and1737-38, as well as grants made him along the Schuylkill river, this land aggregating in all upward of 1,000 acres, most of which lay in Exeter township.

464. Phillip Brookins,58 son of William Brookins and Unk, was born about 23 Oct 1705 in Marlboro, Middlesex Co, Mass and died between 1770 and Nov 1773 in New Marlboro. Mass.

General Notes: The follwoning from Jim Burke: Philip married Sarah Keys when he was twenty-one. Sara was from the neighboring town of Lancaster, the daughter of John Keys who was among the most prosperous and prominent men in both Lancaster and Marlboro, taking a leading part in all most all religious and community affairs.

In 1741, Philip along with Philip Callender and Elias Keys together with other members of settlement moved from Marlboro and Lancaster to Berkshire County in western Massachusetts, and made a new settlement, which they called New Marlboro. This area at the time was a beautiful,but primitive land located near a village of Indians known as the Stockbridge Tribe. Here in their new settlement of New Marlboro they built a fort on Leffingwall Hill to protect them from the Indians.

The first known births of New Marlboro were twin sons born to Philip and Sarah. All in all Philip fathered seventeen sons. It appears that Sara was the mother to all seventeen, as there aren?t any records to suggest differently. Seventeen sons sounds like a record, but Sir William Philips, who purchased the ?Salutation Inn? from John Brookinswidow had twenty-six children who were all boys. They claim all these boys were of the same mother.

Nearly all, if not all, of Philip?s seventeen sons, together with several of his grandsons fought against the British in the Revolution, including by Grand Daddy Cyrus who was the oldest of the clan. Some of the Philips fought through the whole war. Son Artemas was personally attached to George Washington, and son Ephraim was at both Saratoga and Valley Forge. The service records of the Brookins men and boys fill several pages in the Revolutionary annuals of Massachusetts and Vermont.

Philip was a veteran of the French and Indian War. When Philip died,about 1770, he had seventy-five living male descendants. Philip?s oldest son Cyrus was by granddaddy.

Noted events in his life were:

• He had a residence in Berkshire) , Mass.

• Military: In French & Indian War And American Revolution.

• He had a residence in 1741 in New Marlboro, Berkshire, Mass.

General Notes: In "First Families of New Haven", we find "Lois Pond, daughter of Moses and Mary (Brainard) Pond born 20 Jun 1730 married Jonathan Linsley".

Lois gave deed 29 Jun 1771, she must have died soon after.

473. Damaris Barnes was born about 1711 in East Hampton, Long Island, Suffolk Co., NY and died on 16 Jul 1754 in Branford, New Haven Co., CT about age 43.

General Notes: per David Lindsley notes
The Branford, CT records show "Damaris wife of Jonathan Linsley died 16 Jul 1754.
The surname BARNES is ONLY a possibility; there is no evidence to date to suggest this is correct. The last name of Damaris has been a mystery for many years. So I'm an going to present what I believe is "some evidence" that BARNES may be correct.
1) When Jonathan's father died he was allow to pick his own guardian,this information can be found in the Branford, CT records: 21 Oct 1726 - Jonathan Linsley, minor son of Jonathan of Branford deceased, chose Benjamin BARNES of Branford for guardian. Benjamin was Jonathan's uncle (wife of Abigail LINSLEY).
2) Damaris was the daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth (DYKE) BARNES. Samuel was Benjamin's younger brother, and since Jonathan was living with the BARNES', he must have known Damaris BARNES.
3) I have not found any records that state that Damaris BARNES ever married someone else, if she did, it is possible that she married in Suffolk Co., NY.

Father: Samuel BARNES b: Abt 1675 in East Hampton, Long Island, NY
Mother: Elizabeth DYKE b: Abt 1685 in Hartford, Hartford Co., CT

476. John Rouse was born about 1717 in <Norwich, West Farms, New London, Conn> and died in 1779 in Windham, Windham Co., CT about age 62.

General Notes: John Rouse was considered "reckless and unsteady and deserted his family and never returned." From The Hazen Family in America, p. 67. Hazen" genealogy alleges that John Rouse's father was a clothier by trade, born near Salisbury Plain, England, in 1688, who was impressed whena youth and compelled to serve on board a British armed ship; he assisted in the capture of Port Royal, Nova Scotia, from the French; soon after, while the water casks were being filled off the coast, he deserted, and in time made his way to Norwich, CT, where he married and died at the age of sixty; two of his sons are said to have given the name to Rouse's Point, NY.

John married Alice Hazen on 16 Mar 1738 in Franklin Church, Norwich, New London Co., CT.

The child from this marriage was:

238       i.  Elijah Rouse


477. Alice Hazen, daughter of Thomas Hazen and Sarah Ayer, was born on 30 Apr 1722 in Norwich, New London Co., CT and died on 26 Aug 1799 in Hartford, Windsor Co., VT at age 77.

General Notes: Note: Court Records for the counties of New London, Tolland, and Windham, 1719-1910. Married: 16 Mar 1737-1738 in Norwich, New London Co., CT : Divorce 1758 in Norwich, New London Co., CT

The identity of Alice Hazen and Alice Chapman has been doubted by oneor two of the Hartford Hazens, simply because they did not remember hearing of any relationship between the families. Mr. L. Downer Hazen, however, was positive there was a relationship, and it is established,we believe, by the follow facts.
Thomas Hazen's will mentioned his daughter Alice Chapman, and Norwichvital records show no marriage of a Chapman to an Alice except that of Simon Chapman to Alice Rouse. The identity of Simon Chapman of Norwich with Simon of Hartford, Vt., is proved by the ages at death of Simon and Alice and other correspondences between Norwich and Hartford records. Chapman descendants remembered hearing "Grandfather Hazen" spoken of in their family, --a designation not used for a neighborhood patriarch, who would rather be called "Uncle." The Chapmans lived among the Hazens and were buried with them. Old letters show that Rodman Chapman visited the Hazen homestead on Christian Street with other cousins, on Dartmouth Commencement occasions.
The fact of a separation between Alice and John Rouse is indicated bytraditions written down by Lucius and Darius Rouse [the memories of the former dated 1845], in which it is stated that John Rouse was reckless and unsteady and deserted his family and never returned. Accordingto the same traditions, John Rouse's father was a clothier by trade, born near Salisbury Plain, England, in 1688, who was impressed when a youth and compelled to serve on board a British armed ship; he assisted in the capture of Port Royal, Nov Scotia, from the French; soon after, while the water casks were being filled off the New England coast,he deserted, and in time made his way to Norwich [Franklin], Conn., where he married and died at the age of sixty; two of his sons are saidto have given the name to Rouse's Point, New York.
John Rouse, after his separation from Alice Hazen, married at Windham, Conn., 13 Mar 1763 Zerviah Backus, by whom he had: Zerviah (b 3 Feb1772, d. 28 Apr. 1772), and Roxalany (b. 25 Oct 1773, d. 9 Aug. 1778). In his will, dated 13 Aug. 1773, proved 29 Mar. 1779, "John Rouse of Windham" mentioned his wife, Zerviah; sons, Elijah, Jabez and John Rouse; and daughters Elis Storey of Bennington, and Mary Rouse. These children correspond exactly to those credited to John Rouse by Lucius Rouse, except that the latter called the wife of Mr. Story of Bennington, "Polly."
Simon Chapman married first, at Norwich, 9 May 1744, Rebecca DeWolfe,by whom he had eight children; Rebecca died 9 July 1757. Simon Chapman of Norwich, Conn., sold 25 Apr. 1774 to Timothy Allen of Southold, L. I., now residing in Norwich, one acre with a dwelling house, small barn, and blacksmith's shop thereon, at the place called Pottapauge. On 15 Dec. 1774, Simon Chapman of Hartford, Vt., blacksmith, bought hundred acre lot no. 64 on the north side of White River from Thomas Savage; and 20 May 1779, he bought of Joshua Hazen a square acre on the southeast corner of Joshua's hundred acre lot, joining on Benjamin Bill's lot. On this plot he built his smithy, and here coals have been found since 1900. Simon Chapman and Erastus Chapman were privates in Capt. Joshua Hazen's Company, Col. Wood's Regt., that marched to Brookfield in the Alarm, Oct. 1780; three days, 40 miles [Vt Rev. Rolls, 284].Erastus Chapman also marched in two alarms in 1781. In his will, dated 24 Apr. 1789, proved 10 Sept. 1792, Simon Chapman of Hartford mentioned his wife Allice, and sons Becket and Elisha [they were by his first wife], Erastus, and Juniah; to Erastus' he gave his blacksmith's tools; witnesses, Joshua Hazen, Zebulon Delano, and Rubin Hazen

Alice married John Rouse on 16 Mar 1738 in Franklin Church, Norwich, New London Co., CT.

478. Joseph Hazen, son of Thomas Hazen and Sarah Ayer, was born on 30 Jun 1717 in Norwich, New London Co., CT and died on 26 Sep 1796 in Franklin, New London Co., CT at age 79.

Tenth Generation (7th Great-Grandparents)



512. Kenelm "Immigrant" Winslow,46 son of Edward Winslow and Magdalene Oliver, was born on 29 Apr 1599 in Droitwich , Worcestershire, England, was christened on 3 May 1599 in St Peters Church, Droitwich , Worcestershire, England, died on 12 Sep 1672 in Salem, Essex, Massachusetts at age 73, and was buried on 13 Sep 1672 in Salem, Mass.

General Notes: KENELM'S IMMIGRATION TO AMERICA: Kenelm Winslow (1599-1672) our 1st immigrant Winslow ancestor to America: The Winslow family from England emerged in the early 14th century England as a loosely knit clan living in the vicinity of the hamlet of Winslow, in Buckinghamshire (50 miles northwest of London) from which they adopted their name. A brother of Edward Winslow ( a Mayflower passenger and Plymouth diplomat and trade negotiator, and governor) , Kenelm was not in the 1627 Division of Cattle (a sharing of the common assets as the town of Plymouth grew). But he arrived at Plymouth before January 1, 1632-33 when he became a freeman (entitled to vote). Kenelm received various land grants and served on committees and juries.


One story of Kenelm's arrival was he supposedly came to Plymouth May 15, 1629 from Gravesend in a party of 35 on the second Mayflower- not the same ship as the first one."Mayflower" was apparently a very popular name for ships in those days! Another more plausable to me concept comes from the Plymouth Colony Records for 1631. In this, Kenelm may have come to Plymouth with his brother Josiah on the "White Angel" in 1631 See the Plymouth Records on Kenelm 1631 below. The Pilgrim Company and assorted others bound for Plymouth mostly came on the first Mayflower in1620, the Fortune in 1621, the Shallop and Sparrow in 1622, the Anne of London in 1623, and the second Mayflower in 1629. Of course, there were other ships that called at Plymouth too - the Little James, the Talbott, and the Handmaid, among others.

As the head of the family (because he was the oldest brother), EdwardWinslow was fittingly the first Winslow to arrive in the New World. Edward was only 25 years old when he made this tremendous change in his life. Gilbert, who accompanied him, was a mere 20. In 1620, Miles Standish was 36 and good, grey William Bradford (as one thinks of him) was only 31. Brewster was an exception: he was 54. John Winslow was about 24 when he emigrated in 1621, and Kenelm was 30 in 1629.

The Winslow ancestral home, the present Kerswell Green Farm, parts ofwhich date from 1340, is located in Kempsey (nr. Worcester), England.Kenelm?s grandfather (also named Kenelm) lived at Kerswell Green and was Churchwarden in Kempsey in 1593. His eldest son, Edward (father ofour Kenelm), left to become a salt manufacturer in Droitwich. While the four Winslow brothers left for the New World, some of the Winslow family remained in Kempsey. John Winslow was Churchwarden (1675-1690), his son, Richard, was the Bishop?s Bailiff around 1701 and also Churchwarden (1703-05) and another son was Curate from 1695-1702.

-----------------------------------------------------
About 1641 he moved to Marshfield, where he had received a grant of land at the place called Green's Harbor, March 5, 1637-38. This grant, originally made to Josiah, his brother, he shared with Love Brewster. He left the homestead to his son Nathaniel. He received other grants of land, and was one of the twenty-six original proprietors of Assonet, now Freetown, Massachusetts. He held various town offices; was deputy to the general court from 1642 to 1644 and from 1649 to 1653, eight years in all. He had considerable litigation, as the early court records show.
This homestead he gave to his second son, Nathaniel, and at his death it passed into the hands of his son, Kenelm, who m. Abigail Waterman; their son Kenelm, whom. Abigail Bourne, was obliged to sell the place in consequence of the failure in business of his younger brother Joseph, of Boston, which also involved his ruin. Other lands were granted to Kenelm Winslow at various times, and still others were purchased by him. He was one of the twenty-six original proprietors of Assonet (Freetown), Mass., purchased from the Indians 2 April, 1659, and received the 24th lot, a portion of which is still owned and occupied (1873) by Barnaby Winslow, his gr. gr. gr. grandson "to whom, by heirship, it has descended through successive generations of more than two hundred years."

He married Elinor (Ellen) Worden Newton Adams June 1, 1634. She arrived on the Anne at Plymouth on July 10, 1623. Elinor was a young widow of 25 when she emigrated, marrying John Adams, a carpenter, who died in 1633. Adams had arrived on the Fortune in 1621. Elinor died December 5, 1681 at Marshfield, MA (where she is buried), "being eighty-three years old."

He d. 13 Sept. 1672, '. seventy-three, Salem, Mass., where he had gone on business [Hon. Luther Hatch, of Marshfield]. According to Rev. L. R. Paige, he died there "apparently after a long sickness; for in his will dated five weeks earlier, 8 Aug. 1672, he describes himself as 'being very sick and drawing nigh unto Death He may have been in Salem on a visit to Mrs. Elizabeth Corwin, [Curwen] daughter of his brother Edward1 Winslow, or perhaps, for the purpose of obtaining medical aid."

FROM PLYMOUTH COLONY RECORDS FOR KENELM WINSLOW

(3) 1631: (2) c. 1629: (1,2,3) Emigrated to Plymouth, MA. (1,2) Came with brother Josiah. (3) Although he first appears of record in
Plymouth in 1633, he is paired in the early years with his brother Josiah WINSLOW, who is known to have arrived in 1631, and so we assume that Kenelm came at the same time. (1) Only about 1/3 of the Pilgrim Church of Leydon came over first, and in 1629 a long hindered portion of the original number came by way of Salem, in Puritan company, and proceeded thence to Plymouth. In was in the "Talbot" and the "Mayflower" (the same that came in 1620 to Plymouth) that 35 of the Leyden people smuggled themselves over. Some servants of the company came in the "Talbot," but the Pilgrims came in the "Mayflower." In 1631 Edward WINSLOW sent from London by the "White Angel" his brother Josiah.

Joseph was born in England probably about 1633, married Margaret Sutton, daughter of John Sutton, May 25, 1655. He was buried May 6, 1675, two days after the birth of the youngest child. There is no doubt but that he is the Joseph who was Plaintiff in Court at Hartford, Conn., in June 1648. Joseph was buried near the 100-acre cove in Barrington. Margaret (Sutton) Carpenter was buried in the East Providence burial ground. The stone is marked "MC DY 1700 A G 65" The letters on this stone are very plain.
Joseph was one of the founders of the first Baptist church in Massachusetts in 1663. Rev. Mr. Miles formed the fourth Baptist church in America, at Swansea , consisting of seven members. Joseph was one of the seven members who contributed to the building of the house in, consequence of which he was fined five pounds, prohibited from worship for the space of one month. The variance that appeared in their religious belief did not disturb his business relations with the family or settlers of Rehoboth, as he was one of the company of the North purchase anddrew one share. He moved from Rehoboth to Swansea in 1661 or1662, soon after his father died.
The Plymouth Colony Records say that on "May 25, 1657, Joseph Carpenter has eight acres of land granted him, adjoining the lot he now liveth on, which was given to John Titus."
His will was dated the 3d of May, 1675; he gives land to his three sons, namely, Joseph, Benjamin and John. He also gave unto them his rights in common of Rehoboth, likewise his rights in common in Swansea. His will also reads -"than now my wife is with child, shall have his part in the rights of lands before described." He gives his three sons his tools, excepting an ax and a hoe; these he wills to his wife. He gave his wearing apparel to Joseph and Benjamin. To his five daughters he gave ten shillings apiece, to be paid them by his wife. He gives his wife his housing, house, lot, and all his lands and goods, but if she married again, she was to give up one half , and the rest she was to enjoy while she lived, and was to be at her disposal to "some or one of my children" as was most dutiful to her. He gives her all the rest of his real estate, and she was to pay his daughter's legacies and debts. He appointed his wife the executrix; and he desired his loving brothers William and Samuel to be his overseers.

Chapter 5: Quaker Ranters, Baptist Schismatics, and Indians with Tongues Running Out (1657-1675)
xxx Thomas Prence, that "Terrour to evill doers," was not known for his compassion towards Quakers. And few families were more identified with the Quakers than those of Arthur and Henry Howland, the two brothers of Mayflower passenger and erstwhile Assistant, John Howland. As early as 22 December 1657, Mr. William Collier and Capt. Josias Winslow,having knowledge of a Quaker meeting to take place at Arthur Howland's [p.94] house in Marshfield, sent Constable John Phillips of Marshfield to interrupt the meeting and arrest a Quaker leader, Robert Huchin. As Phillips testified, he could not apprehend Huchin, being hindered by Howland, who told Phillips "hee would have either a sword or a gun in the belly of him." Seventeen-year-old Samuel Hunt testified thatZoeth Howland, son of Henry, had told him he would not go to a churchmeeting with him "to hear lyes, and that the devill could teach as good a sermon as the minnisters." Henry Howland himself was disenfranchised, along with William Newland, on 6 October 1659 for being an abettor and entertainer of Quakers.10 Governor Prence would not have relished being related to this conglomeration of radicals.

Originally named Metacomet, he was called Philip by the English settlers. In 1662 Philip succeeded his brother and formally renewedthe treaties of his father, which he honored for some years. The colonists, however, made continual encroachments on native lands. In retaliation Philip formed a confederation of tribes and in 1675 led an uprising now known as King Philip's War. They burned towns and killed manyof the inhabitants. In return the colonists captured Native American women and children, destroyed crops, and promised immunity to Native American deserters. In December 1675 the colonists won a major victory.During the spring of 1676 the Native Americans held out, but their numbers steadily diminished, and in August, Philip was killed. The war then ended, and resistance to further colonial settlements in southern New England ceased.

716. William Stratton, son of Caleb ?? Stratton and Mary ?? Adams, was born in 1676 in Market Harborough, Leicestershire, England and died in Oct 1709 in Albany, NY at age 33.

General Notes: from "A Book of Strattons" p. 239:
In the autumn of 1713 two daughters of Timothy Hancock married Strattons. These two young men, Emanuel Stratton and Mark Stratton, were brothers. The records of their marriages give no clew to their parentage or former residence. In each case the record simply says, "he being a single man." From this date much is known of them. More than a thousand of their descendants have been satisfactorily traced.

Conflicting traditions are found concerning their ancestry.

Cregar's Haine's Ancestry, published in 1887, contains this:

"Emanuel Stratton of Gloucester County, New Jersey, yeoman, a native of Long Island and a member of the Society of Friends is said to have descended from a William Stratton, of Stratford, England, four of whose sons emigrated to America. Emanuel died in 1725 appointing his 'lone brother,' Mark Stratton of Evesham, executor of his will."

This is the belief of many branches of his descendants, founded, as far as the writer has been able to learn, upon tradition only. By a careful study of the original will at Trenton, the word which Cregar supposed to be "lone" proves to be "lovin" as published in Vol. XXI, N. J.Archives, page 479, goes to prove that both occurred prior to May 1, 1690:

"1690, 1st d., 3rd mo. Deed: Daniel Mills of Northampton River, Burlington Co., Yeoman to Timothy Hancock on Cropwell Creek said Co., and wife Susannah, formerly Susannah Ives, for 80 acres to be taken up in West Jersey." And from the same source is a mention of a deed given in 1690,
by Walter Humphries of County of Gloucester, England, by his son and attorney, Joshua Humphries, "to Timothy Hancock and his daughter Elizabeth by his former wife Rachel Firman." Several published works claim that Ann, daughter of Timothy Hancock (wife of Mark Stratton), was thedaughter of his first wife. The above proves that this is not true, as Ann Hancock was born August 11, 1691.

William married Abigail ?? Moore.

Children from this marriage were:

358       i.  Mark Stratton

         ii.  Emmanuel Stratton


717. Abigail ?? Moore was born in Hartford, CT and died in 1709 in Salsbury, CT.

Abigail married William Stratton.

718. Timothy Hancock, son of John Hancock and Anne, was born on 1 Dec 1653 in Brailes, Warwickshire, England and died in 1713 in Evesham, Burlington, NJ at age 60.

General Notes: In 1681 the ship 'Paradise' brought a body of colonists to New Jerseyamong who were Timothy Hancock and his sister Mary, from Warwickshire.
Mary married William Matlock, who came in the 'Kent'. Timothy settledon a tract of 100 acres of land in Burlington County, between the forks of the Pensauken Creek, about two miles from the present town of Moorestown. In 1682, in connection with William Matlock and John Roberts, he bought a piece of land of the Indian chief Tallaca, the originaldeed that is now preserved by a descendant of William Matlock.

"Timothy was a young man when he came to New Jersey. Three years later, -- November 16, 1684, -- he married Rachel Firman, in Evesham monthly meeting. Rachel died before 1690 and Timothy married Susannah Ives.He was a prominent man in the colony.

Timothy Hancock and his sister, then about fifteen, came from their home in Brayles, Warwickshire, England in the ship 'Paradise' arriving in West Jersey on March 7, 1681. Timothy was able to pay the passage money for the two of them. When they landed they had little worldly goods; they were a humble pair and the community readily accepted them. Ayear later Mary let several suitors know that she was spoken for as her heart favored William Matlack. The Quaker ceremony in 1682 was a joyous event; William was thirty-four and Mary sixteen.

Timothy Hancock married first in 1684 Rachel Firman. His second marriage was to Susannah Ives. His 100-acre tract adjoined the Matlack homestead. As more settlers came into the area, William Matlack and Timothy Hancock thought it a good idea to set up a Friends Meeting and withthe consent of the Burlington Friends this was established in the Hancock home in 1685.

General Notes: Samuel was among the signers of "New Plantation and Church Covenant" of Branford on 20 Jan 1667. From Trumbull's Connecticut Colonial Records, we learn that: "At General Court", held at Hartford, Connecticut on 9 May 1672, Samuel Pond of Branford, was propounded for a Freeman. Residence in the country then was not considered sufficient to entitlethe resident to the elective franchise. It appears they were made such by a special act of the General Court (Legislative body), as a favor granted, being previously propounded as a fit subject for such favor; and before they could enjoy the elective franchise they had, also, to take what was called the "Freeman's Oath", which latter feature wasretained in some, if not in all, the Eastern States for a number of years subsequent to the American Revolution, requiring all citizens on arriving at the age of majority to take the "Freeman's Oath" before they could enjoy the elective franchise.

Samuel was a Deputy to the General Court from Branford in 1678, 1682,1283, and 1687. When first elected Deputy in 1678 there were but twenty-two towns, and forty-two Deputies, all but two electing two Deputies each (Branford had two).

MARRIAGE CORRECTION BELOW!!! MARRIAGE RECORD FOUND IN ENGLAND!!Number16 in the Carpenter Memorial by Amos B. Carpenter (1898).AFN V6TJ-CO& LSD9-5L on this William has major errors. Sources below usedfor corrections. Captain of the Colony.

!FOUNDER: Captain William Carpenter is concidered the founder of the Rehoboth MA Branch of the Carpenters.

!BIRTH: Probably in Wiltshire. He spent time in Wherwell (Whirlwell orHorwell). Born 23 or 25 (in some records) May 1605. CHR: 1611 in Somerset per one record. This is about 150 miles away, however
and may have belonged to another.

!DEATH: 7 Feb 1658/59 in Rehoboth per some records. However this was the datehis will was proven. See WILL note below.7 Feb 1659 was the date that William's will was PROVEN. In many records his
death date is listed as 7 Feb 1658/1659. His will was WRITTEN 21 Apr 1658.Part of the confusion is the old calendar used and adjusted to the moderncalendar. The time period between Jan and Apr is the confusion. Under the oldcalendar, what we call March 25, April 1 in some places, was the start of the
new year under the old calandar. It is confusing to those who are unawareof the calendar changes done in 1752.

!BURIAL: His grave is in the Newman Cemetery in Rumford, RI which used to bepart of Rehoboth, MA. His maker is an ordinary field stone with the initials"W.C." carved with "1658" chisled below it. John L. Carpenter of Walpole, NHhas an excellent picture which he has digitized for e-Mail use.

!Some records given Abigail Sales (Searles) as wife and others AbigailBennett, Ralph his step-brother is also listed as a spouse to AbigailBennett.It is likely that this Williiam was married at least twice. Abigail Bennettdied in 1687 in Rehoboth. If this is true the first three kids are AS andothers to AB. In at least one record, Abigail Briant(Bryant) is listed asspouse.If she was a spouse, she would have been number one or one of the Abiailsabove under a married name? FOUND!!!

Major-General Humphrey Atherton of Dorchester, is said by Farmer to have come from Preston, Lancashire, England. One of his descendants Charles H. Atherton, says, "he arrived in Boston in the ship James in 1635, and was between fourteen and fifteen years of age when he married, his wife being between thirteen and fourteen, and that they brought children with them. Her name was Mary, probably a daughter of Nathaniel Wales, Sen." He early showed a decided taste for military affairs, andsoon became a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company, and was its captain from 1650 to 1658. In 1644, he organized the firsttrain-band in Dorchester. Later on he commanded the Suffolk regiment with the title of Major-General, and was the chief military officer inNew England. For many years he served as selectman and town treasurer, and in 1638 and 1641, was Deputy to the General Court. General Atherton was employed in several expeditions against the Narragansett Indians, and when they became tributary to Massachusetts, was sent severaltimes to collect the tribute of wampum. Upon one occasion when sent with twenty men to demand of the Sachem, Pessacus, the arrears due the colony of three hundred fathoms of wampum, his courage, presence of mind and quick decision were strikingly exhibited. Pessacus had put him off
with dilatory answers, not suffering him to come into his presence. At last, his patience exhausted, he led his men to the door of the wigwam, entered alone pistol in hand, and seizing Pessacus by the hair ofhis head, dragged him from the midst of his warriors, threatening anywho interfered with instant death. It is to be assumed that the wampum was paid. In 1645 the Commissioners of the United Colonies appointed a Council of War, which was composed of Captain Standish, Mason of Connecticut, and everett and Atherton of Massachusetts.

Soon afterwards ( March 1675) during the King Phillip's War, the Wamesit Indians burnt 3 or 4 housed that belonged to Edward Colburn. The Colburns and their neighbors- the Varnums- while ready to defend their homes, were also willing to live peacefully withthe Indians; often granting their requests and complying with their demands. After clearing the lands and building houses the settlers found it easier to make money payments to the Indians than to abandon thesettlement. He was a soldier (corporal) in the local Military Company of Chelmsford during King Phillips War of 1676-77.

(Salt Lake City Library-Archives) "New England Marriages Prior to 1700" by Clarence Almon Torrey and (Vital Records of Births in Lynn, Massachusetts), page 54.

Richard and Isabel lived in Lynn, Massachusetts until about 1657. He probably worked at the first iron foundery in the colonies. He also served as a Constable of Lynn in 1657. "Story of the Bloods" by Roger Deane Harris, page 6.

After moving to Groton, Richard was chief of the original proprietorsand was granted sixty acres of land. The other land grants were for twenty or fifty acres. Richard was one of the signers of the petition to have Groton become a town. "Bicentennial for Silas Blood 1775-1976"by Marion B. Lawrence, page 43.

In 1668, Richard BLOOD and several others, were chosen as overseers of the highways. He was also Town Clerk and sat on the Board of Selectmen in 1669. In some of the records, Richard's surname is spelled as BLUD and as BLOUD "Early Records of Groton, Massachusetts" by Samuel A.Green, page 24-25 & 57 and (Groton Vital Records) page 204.

War broke out with the Indians and in 1675, during King Phillips War,the town of Groton was attacked. Richard and his family, along with many others inhabitants, fled to Concord, Massachusetts and stayed there until the fighting was over. Groton was resettled by 1678 and Richard returned with the others. There were many clashes with the Indians and James BLOOD, Richard's son was killed at Groton 13 September 1692.Three of Richard's grandchildren were captured by the Indians on 20 June 1707 and taken to Canada. Sarah TARBELL was placed in a Convent. Her brothers, John and Zechariah became Chiefs of the Coughnawaga Tribe. They were among the founders of St. Regis and in 1883 still had descendants living there. "Groton During the Indian Wars 1655-1790" by Samuel A. Green, page 106 & 124, and "Memorials of the Descendants of William Shattuck" by Lemuel Shadduck, page 369.

Richard passed away 7 December 1683 in Groton, Massachusetts. He had deeded land to his sons shortly before his death. Administration of his estate was granted to his widow and his three sons, James, Joseph, and Nathaniel on 1 April 1684. His widow, Isabel gave bond on 8 July 1684 with Joseph PARKER and Zachariah FERRIS as surities. She had movedin with her daughter, Hannah and Hannah's husband, Joseph Parker, Jr.in Groton after Richard's death. It is not known when Isabel died. Her son-in-law, Joseph PARKER, petitioned to sell her land in 1705. "Story of the Bloods" by Roger Deane Harris, pages 164-166 and (Court Records of Middlesex County, Quarterly Court)

Some researchers have Richard BLOOD listed as a brother of Robert BLOOD with their Father being James BLOOD. James was born about 1600 and would have only been seventeen years old and unmarried when Richard was born in 1617. James was married in St. Peter's Church in the city of Nottingham on 7 February 1630/31 to Ellen HARRISON. Richard and Robert lived in the same area and may have been brothers or cousins. "Story of the Bloods" by Roger Deane Harris, page 1.

Richard and Isabel had seven known children and their descendants arescattered from Massachusetts to California and from Canada to Florida. I'm pleased to know that I descend from people who had the imagination and fortitude to leave the security of their homeland and take a chance on finding a better life.

1094. Richard "Mayflower" Warren, son of Christopher ?? Warren and Alice Webb, was born between 1578 and 1590 in Prob London, Middlesex, England and died in 1628 in Plymouth Colony, Plymouth, Mass.

General Notes: 1620 Mayflower passenger, signer of the Mayflower Compact. Richard Warren appears to have been a merchant, who resided in London, and became associated with the Pilgrims and the Mayflower through the Merchant Adventurers. Richard Warren participated in several of the early explorations made by the Pilgrims in 1620, while looking for a place tosettle. He appears by land records to have been fairly well-to-do.When he came over on the Mayflower, he left behind his wife and five daughters, planning to have them sent over after things were more settled in the Colony. His wife and daughters arrived in America in 1623,on the ship Anne.
Nathaniel Morton wrote in his book New England's Memorial, first published in 1669, the following about Richard Warren: This year [1628]died Mr. Richard Warren, who was an useful instrument and during his life bare a deep share in the difficulties and troubles of the first settlement of the Plantation of New Plymouth.

Richard Warren's ancestry is unknown though he was said to be of London [Mourt's Relation, London, 1622, p. 15.]. Born, prob abt. 1578, He married by about 1609 Elizabeth ______, who survived him for many years and whose identity also remains unknown. [MD 3:46] The next year, 1628, he died at Plymouth, leaving his widow to care for a family of five daughters (four of whom were under seventeen), and two sons under four. Nathaniel Morton, in writing of the year 1628, speaks of his death as follows: [New England's Memorial, p. 68.]This year died Mr. Richard Warren, who hath been mentioned before in this Book,ง and was an useful Instrument; and during his life bare a deep share in the Difficulties and Troubles of the first Settlement of the Plantation of New-Plimouth. [MD 3:50] Mrs. Elizabeth Warren died at Plymouth, 2/12 October, 1673, aged above ninety years, having survived her husband forty-five years and lived to see at least seventy-five great-grandchildren. It seems impossible that her funeral should have been delayed for twenty-two days, and it is probable that there is an error in the record of her death, which follows:? Mistris Elizabeth Warren an aged widdow aged above go yeares Deceased on the second of October 1673 whoe haveing lived a Godly life Cam to her Grave as a shok of Corn fully Ripe shee was honoralbey buried on the 24th Bradford's Passenger List: mr Richard Warren lived some 4 or 5 years, and had his wife come over to him, by whom he had 2 sons before dyed; and one of them is maryed, and hath .2. children So his Increase is .4. but he had .5. doughters more came over with his wife, who are all maried, & living & have many children.

Plymouth Colony: History and People by Eugene Stratton

Elizabeth Warren, was given [p.368] the unique distinction of havinga law passed unanimously by the whole court to give her the Purchaserstatus her deceased husband had , "hee dying before he had performed the bargaine, the said Elizabeth performed the same after his decease,and also for the establishing of the lotts of lands given formerly byher unto her sonnes in law, Richard Church, Robert Bartlett, and Thomas Little" (PCR 1:54). The three sons-in-law had married respectively daughters Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna, and the other two daughters were married later, Sarah to Mayflower
passenger John Cooke, and Abigail to Anthony Snow. Richard and Elizabeth Warren had two sons born at Plymouth, Nathaniel, who married SarahWalker, and Joseph, who married Priscilla Faunce? see the second revision (1986) of the Families of the Pilgrims booklet on Warren. Widow Elizabeth Warren's servant, Thomas Williams, was charged with speaking profane and blasphemous speeches to her, but the court released him with a warning after he made a humble acknowledgment of his offence (PCR1:35). She died at Plymouth 2 October 1673, aged above ninety years, "having lived a godly life, came to her grave as a shoke of corn fullyripe" (PCR 8:35). The English origin of the Warrens, though much searched for, has not yet been found, but she was definitely not ElizabethJowett, as some have claimed. Although Warren's granddaughter Elizabeth Warren had a child by Joseph2 Doty, she did not, as has been written, marry him. Some early generations are given by Claude W. Barlow, "Richard and Elizabeth Warren," MQ 42:125, 43:12. See also Mrs. Washington A. Roebling, "Richard Warren of the Mayflower and Some of His Descendants," NEHGR 55:70, which contains some errors. See also Ruth Berg Walsh, "The Search for Pilgrim Richard Warren's Parentage," MQ 51:109).

Richard Warren died in 1628. His wife Elizabeth outlived him by 45 years, dying at Plymouth in 1673. Her death was noted in the Records of Plymouth Colony (PCR 8:35) : "Mistris Elizabeth Warren, an aged widdow, aged above 90 yeares, deceased on the second of October, 1673, whoe, haveing lived a godly life, came to her grave as a shocke of corn fully ripe."

During the long period of her widowhood, Elizabeth Warren?s name appears in the records of Plymouth Colony. She appears first as executor of her husband?s estate, next paying taxes owed by a head of household, and finally as an independent agent in her own right.

An article by Edward J. Davies in the April 2003 issue of The American Genealogist gives evidence that Elizabeth Warren may have been the daughter of Augustine Walker. An Elizabeth Walker, daughter of Augustine Walker, married a Richard Warren in Great Amwell, Hertfordshire, on April 14, 1610. The will of Augustine Walker, dated April 19, 1613, refers not only to his daughter Elizabeth Warren but also her 3 daughters : Mary, Ann and Sarah. These three Warren daughters correspondto three of the Warren daughters who were passengers on the Anne in 1623.

Noted events in her life were:

• Misc: Considered A Founding Father ( Surviving Settler) Of New Plymouth.

• She emigrated on 10 Jul 1623 from On Anne With Daughters.

Elizabeth married Richard "Mayflower" Warren in 1610 in (Great Amwell, Hertford, ) England.

1110. William Collier was born between 1585 and 1590 in St. Olave, Southward, Surrey, England and died before 5 Jul 1671 in Duxbury, Mass.

General Notes: Arrived in Plymouth in 1633. One of the Adventurers-benefactors of Plymouth Colony.
Held several key offices for the United Colonies; commissioner; Council of War.

One of the few Adventurers to come to live in New England, he was praised by Nathaniel Morton (New Englands Memorial, p. 91): "This year [1633] likewise Mr. William Collier arrived with his Family in New-England, who as he had been a good Benefactor to the Colony of New-Plimouthbefore he came over, having been an Adventurer unto it at its first beginning; so also he approved himself a very useful Instrument in thatJurisdiction after he arrived, being frequently Chosen, and for divers years serving God and the Country in the place of Magistracy, and lived a godly and holy life until old Age." He was often elected an Assistant between 1634/35 and 1665, and he appeared to side with the moreconservative leaders, such as in the 1645 fight with Vassall. James Cudworth wrote that "Mr. Collier last June would not sit on the Bench, if I sate there" (Bishop, p. 176). He was on the Council for War, and he served at times as a commissioner of the United Colonies. He resided in Duxbury, and in 1649/50 he deeded ten acres of land in Duxbury to "my kinsman William Clark" (PCR 12:182). Collier married Jane Clark at St. Olave, Southwark, 16 May 1611, and he and his wife had four daughters with them in Plymouth Colony: Sarah, who married (1) Love Brewster and (2) Richard Parke of Cambridge; Rebecca, who married Job Cole; Mary, who married Thomas Prence; and Elizabeth, who married Constant Southworth. Robert S. Wakefield, "More on the Children of William Collier," TAG 49:215 and 51:58, identified eight other children in England (at least four having died young), and he showed that Collier had lived in St. Mary Magdalen Parish, Bermondsey, Surrey, and St. Olave Parish, Southwark. In the St. Olave register he was called a grocer. Bradford referred to a "brew-house of Mr. Colliers in London" (Ford 2:125). On 7 June 1653 Mrs. Jane Collier made a claim on behalf of her grandchild, the wife of Nathaniel2 Warren (MD 3:141). The grandchild was Sarah (Walker) Warren, who was baptized at St. Olave, Southwark, 10 November 1622, the daughter of William Walker (TAG 51:92). On 2 December1661 William Collier of Duxbury, gentleman, with the consent of Mrs. Jane Collier, sold all his house and land that he was living on in Duxbury to Benjamin Bartlett, who was not to enter into possession until the death of both William and Jane Collier. Collier died before 5 July1671, when men were appointed to administer his estate (PCR 5:68).

Noted events in his life were:

• He was employed in Grocer In England.

• Military: Considered A Founding Father ( Surviving Settler) Of New Plymouth.

1136. William "Mayflower" Bradford, son of William Bradford and Alice Hanson, was born before 19 Mar 1590 in Austerfield, Yorkshire, England and died on 9 May 1657 in Plymouth, Plymouth, Mass.

General Notes: 1620 Mayflower passenger; key leader of Plymouth colony; 2nd and manytimes governor of Plymouth colony; historian of the Pilgrims. William Bradford came on the Mayflower with his wife Dorothy (May), leavingson John behind in Holland. Dorothy fell off the Mayflower and drowned on 7 December 1620, when it was anchored in Provincetown Harbor. This was an accidental drowning. The story of the suicide, affair withCaptain Christopher Jones, etc. comes from a fictional "soap opera" story published in a national women's magazine in 1869--a story published as truth by the author, based on "family stories", but which the author later admitted was an invention of her own imagination.
After the death of John Carver in April 1621, Bradford was elected governor of the Plymouth Colony, and continued in that capacity nearly all his life. In 1623 he married Alice (Carpenter) Southworth, widow ofEdward Southworth. A description of the marriage is found in a letter written by a visitor to Plymouth Colony, Emmanuel Altham, in 1623:
Upon the occasion of the Governor's marriage, since I came, Massasoitwas sent for to the wedding, where came with him his wife, the queen,although he hath five wives. With him came four other kings and about six score men with their bows and arrows--where, when they came to our town, we saluted them with the shooting off of many muskets and training our men. And so all the bows and arrows was brought into the Governor's house, and he brought the Governor three or four bucks and aturkey. And so we had very good pastime in seeing them dance, which is in such manner, with such a noise that you would wonder. . . . And now to say somewhat of the great cheer we had at the Governor's marriage. We had about twelve pasty venisons, besides others, pieces of roasted venison and other such good cheer in such quantity that I could wish you some of our share. For here we have the best grapes that everyou say--and the biggest, and divers sorts of plums and nuts which our business will not suffer us to look for.
William Bradford died in 1657((67 years old), having been governor ofthe Plymouth Colony for almost the entire period since 1621. William Bradford wrote of Plymouth Plantation, chronicling the history of the Plymouth Colony, and the events that led up to their leaving England for Holland, and later to New England. William Bradford also wrote part of Mourt's Relation: A Journal of the Pilgrims at Plymouth, and he recorded some of the important letters he wrote and received in a letterbook which still partially exists.

• He was employed in Magistrate.

• Other: Mayflowr Passenger.

General Notes: Thomas RICHARDS was born about 1590 in Dorchester, England?. He died about 1650/51. BY GEORGE ERNEST BOWMAN
THE wills of Thomas Richards of Weymouth, Mass., and his widow, Welthian Richards of Boston, will interest many descendants of Plymouth .Colony families, since their daughter Mary Richards was the first wife of Thomas2 Hinckley ? (Samuel1), afterwards governor of Plymouth Colony, and bore him eight children, all but one of whom married. The daughter Alice Richards became the wife of William2 Bradford ? (Gov. William1) and bore him ten children, all of whom married.
The will of Thomas Richards was made at Hull, Mass., at the house of Thomas Loring, on 27 December, 1650, and the inventory of his goods atWeymouth was taken 18 January, 1650/1; he must, therefore, have died between these two dates;' None of the papers relating to his estate were recorded, and the following abstracts, with the literal copy of thepetition of the heirs, were made from the original documents, now in the Suffolk County Probate Files in Boston.

[THE WILL OF THOMAS RICHARDS]
The will of Thomas Richards of Weymouth was made at the house of Thomas Loring, in Hull, Mass., 17 December, 1650, and was proved 28 January, 1652/1.

General Notes: John Alden, one of the Pilgrims, born in Southampton, England. He went to America on the Mayflower in 1620 and was a signer of the Mayflower Compact. He was one of the founders of Plymouth, the first permanent English settlement in New England. In 1623 Alden married Priscilla Mullens, another Pilgrim. In 1627 or shortly afterward, together with the Plymouth colonist Miles Standish, he founded Duxbury, where he lived until his death. Alden was active in the affairs of Plymouth Colony, serving alternately as assistant to the governor and as deputy fromDuxbury. He lived longer than any of the other signers of the Mayflower Compact.
Alden's fame rests chiefly on the romantic tale written by the American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, "The Courtship of Miles Standish" (1858). In the poem, Alden, deeply in love with Priscilla Mullens, proposes to her on behalf of his shy friend Standish, whereupon she inquires, "Why don't you speak for yourself, John?"

John Alden was an assistant for the Plymouth colony for many years, and was deputy governor for two years. His marriage to Priscilla Mullins was the subject of the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow poem, "The Courtship of Myles Standish", which although a classic has little factual basis. John and Priscilla were among the founders of the town of Duxbury.
In his later years, John Alden was on many juries, including even a witch trial--though in Plymouth's case, the jury found the accuser guilty of libel and the alleged witch was allowed to go free. Plymouth Colony only had two witch trials during its history, and in both cases the accuser was found guilty and punished.
John and Priscilla Alden probably have the largest number of descendants of any Mayflower passenger, but with stiff competition from Richard Warren and John Howland. They are ancestors to Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams, poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Vice President Dan Quayle.

"John Alden was hire for a cooper at Southampton where the ship victualed, and being a hopeful young man was much desired, but left to his own liking to go and stay when he came here, but he stayed, maryed here," wrote William Bradford in his History of Plymouth Plantation. A hopeful young man indeed, John Alden was about 21 years of age when the Mayflower sheltered at Provincetown harbor in November of 1620, and hew one one of the 41 men who signed the Mayflower Compact in her cabinshortly after their arrival. His skills and strength must certainly have been a great aid to the weary Pilgrims in their race to build shelter on the shore before the hard set of winter, and his wise counsel and efficient administration were to serve the colony for the next 67 years,.

In 1623 John took part in the division of the land, being in the group that received land on the north side of town, but because the record is worn, exactly how many acres he received is unknown. In the division of cattle in 1627, with his wife, Priscilla, and children Elizabeth and John, he was part of the 4th lot that received four Raghoren heifer that had come on the ship Jacob. Also in 1627, Alden joined with seven other men -- Bradford, Standish, Allerton, Winslow, Brewster, Howland and Thomas Prence -- who assumed the debt of the colony from themerchants in London. His trustworthiness and popularity were rewardedby positions in community government for more than 55 years and underfive different governors of the Colony. He served at various times asgovernor assistant, deputy to the General Court, treasurer, deputy governor, and on various committees to review laws, redress abuses, and handle disputes. He also served on the councils of war against the Dutch in the 1620's and 50's and the Indians in 1675.

John and his wife, Priscilla, received grants of land in Duxbury in 1627 and lived there during the farming season, returning to Plymouth for Sunday worship and the winter season. In 1632 a permanent settlement in Duxbury was established by the Aldens, the Standishes and others. John's (and perhaps Priscilla's) later years were spent in his son Jonathan's house, which had been built in 1653 and still stands today.A portion of this house is believed to be the old house built by John, moved from its nearby foundations and added to the new house.

From his own deposition made in 1682 when he stated he was "aged 83 or thereabouts" and have been "one of the first comers into New England to settle at or about Plymouth which is about 62 year since..," we know that John Alden was born about 1599. The place of birth is assumed to be England, but no more specific origin has been proved. He diedin Duxbury on September 22, 1687, the last surviving signer of the Mayflower Compact. He left no will, having distributed his lands to his children before his death.

John Alden's wooing of fellow Mayflower passenger, Priscilla Mullins,is probably the best-known story of the Pilgrims, but little is actually known of their years together. They were probably married by 1623 or 1624, and Priscilla died before John, sometime after 1689, but no more specific dates are known for these two important events. William Bradford recorded in his list of Mayflower passengers that John and Priscilla Alden had 11 children. However, at another place in his manuscript, Bradford's calculations seem to indicate there were only 10 children.

John Alden joined the Mayflower in England. At the time, he was about 21 years old. William Bradford writes that he "was hired for a cooper, at South-Hampton, where the ship victuled; and being a hopefull yong man, was much desired, but left to his owne liking to go or stay when he came here; but he stayed, and maryed here." John Alden was a cooper, or barrel-maker, by trade.

John Alden married Priscilla Mullins, also of the Mayflower. The date of their marriage is not known. They were probably married by 1623 since Priscilla is not listed separately in the 1623 Division of Land.By the 1627 Division of Cattle, they were married and had two children, Elizabeth and John.

The legend of the rivalry between Miles Standish and John Alden for the hand of Priscilla Mullins was first published in Rev. Timothy Alden's 1814 Collection of American Epitaphs and Inscriptions. The story was popularized in the poem, The Courtship of Miles Standish, published by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in 1858. There is no documentation for the legend in the records of Plymouth Colony.

Alden became one of the Purchasers and Undertakers. He was an Assistant in the Colony government for many years and presided occasionally as deputy governor. He also served as colony treasurer and was a member of committees in charge of revising laws.

John Alden was one of the founders of Duxbury. He owned several pieces of property but seems to have deeded all his real estate to his children during his lifetime. John Alden died intestate (without a will), but we do have an inventory of the property he owned at his death (click HERE for John Alden's inventory).

The Alden homesite in Duxbury contains the excavated foundations of the first Alden home (c1627) as well as the still-standing 1653 Alden House. The homesite was acquired in 1907 by the Alden Kindred of America (the Kindred is comprised of descendants of John and Priscilla Mullins Alden).

. Most of us here trace our ancestry back to the brothers Daniel and Richard Scofield, who came to the states in 1635. They are said to be the sons of an Alexander Scofield and related, some say as grandchildren, some say as nephews, to Sir Cuthbert Scofield of Rochdale, Lancashire, England.

Noted events in his life were:

Hannah married John Mead on 10 Jul 1657.

1468. Clement Buxton was born about 1615 in Huntingdonshire, England and died on 2 Aug 1657 in Stamford, Fairfield, CT about age 42.

General Notes: Where did Clement and Unica Buxton come from? Of course we assume they are from those parts of England associated with the Parlimentarians, but have no evidence to suggest what town or shire. Mrs. Robert Buxton of Albuquerque, NM did much correspondance with areas associated with the name "Buxton" but found nothing. Robert Charles Anderson compiler of the "Great Migration Study" at the New England Historical & Genealogical Society felt it unlikely that evidence of Clement & Unica will be found in Colonial records prior to their appearance in Stamford, CT. He also found no evidence in English records while researchingother families for the Study. Some earlier Buxton researchers made him the brother of Anthony Buxton of Salem, MA but the current(1998) Historian for that group, Beatrice Buxton, has disproved the relationship beyond doubt. Also earlier researchers suggested he was associated with Oliver Cromwell during the rebellion, perhaps in Cromwell's army but no evidence was cited nor has any been found. He appeared in Connecticut about 1647 when the English soldiers not needed for garrisons or for service in Ireland were being disbanded.

Another curiousity is whether Elizabeth Buxton, who was apparently born in England, was their daughter or his sister. Judging from their apparent ages she could have been his sister or even some other relative.

When Clement died in 1657 an inventory of his estate was taken givingus the opportunity to consider how his material possesions indicated his lifestyle in Stamford. He was living well for the time and place,not rich but comfortable. He owned tools and supplies for shoemakingas well as for farming. His furnishings and clothing were more than many others and he had some things that were rare. He owned a desk (writing box) often used by army officers and others who traveled and wrote or kept records. He owned 3 Bibles, since printing was quite costly this was very unusual. At his death, his children, except Elizabeth were minors. His son reached the age of majority while his mother was married to Nicholas Knapp, when his inheritance from his father wastransferred to him.

1488. Jeffrey Ferris was born about 1610 in Leicestershire, England, died on 31 May 1666 in Greenwich , CT about age 56, and was buried in 1666 in Sound Beach Ave Cem, Greenwich, Fairfield, CT.

General Notes: JEFFREY FERRIS, founder of his branch of the family in America, was born in Leicestershire, England, about the year 1610. He came to this country about the year 1634, was first recorded at Watertown, near Boston, Massachusetts, and was admitted a freeman at New Towne, then a part of Cambridge, May 6, 1635. His name appears among the first settlers and is on a list of those who paid for a survey, and received ten acres at the first assignment of land at Stamford, Connecticut. He removed to Wethersfeld, Connecticut, where he owned a tract of land consisting of forty-five acres, which he later sold to John Deming. The first purchase of land from four Indian chiefs was made by Robert Feake and Daniel Patricke, and included what was later known as the town of Greenwich, Connecticut. At the bottom of the deed making this conveyance is written: "Keofferman hath sould all his right in the above lotto Jeffere Ferris." This deed is dated July 18, 1640. He resided at Stamford but a short time and then settled at Fairfield going from there to Greenwich in 1642 where he was one of the first settlers. In 1656 he was one of the eleven men from Greenwich who petitioned to be accepted under the New Haven jurisdiction. He returned to reside in Stamford about the year 1658. There is no documentation to prove his birth place, birth date or when he came to America. (Researched by Forrest G. Ferris)

The name of Jeffrey's first wife and mother of his known children remains unknown. He married second, at Stamford, in May 1661, Susannah (Norman) Lock-wood, widow of Sergeant Robert Lockwood [dau of Richard]. She was born 1612, in England and died December 23, 1661 at Greenwich. Jeffrey's marriage contract with Susannah, dated May 28, 1661,pledges certain legacies to the children of Robert Lockwood-deceased,and mortgages his Greenwich lands and "housings".
Jeffrey, married 3d, in 1662 at Stamford, Judith (Feake) Palmer, widow of Lieutenant William Palmer, (not Henry as found in some sources to include Ye Historie of Ye Greenwich) afterwards the wife of John Bowers. Judith (Judah) was born circa 1621, London, England and died in 1667/8, Yarmouth MA - she was the dau of James & Audrey (Crompton) Feake, of London. Judith was also niece of Robert Feake, credited as oneof the founders of Greenwich. Soon after Jeffrey's death, she marriedJohn Bowers. He wills to the four boys he brought up, ten pounds sterling apiece, if they live with any of his children until they are eighteen years old, the money then to be put out for them until they are twenty years of age. His will names also his wife Judy, son James, son Jonathan Lockwood and Mary Lockwood, son Peter's three children, and son Joseph's two. Judy Bowers, his widow, receipts for her widow's portion, March 6, 1667. His marriage contract with his wife Susannah, widow of Robert Lockwood, of date May 28, 1661, pledges certain legacies to the children of Robert Lockwood, deceased, and mortgages his Greenwich lands and "housings".

Tradition invests the immigration of this family to this country withthe lines of romantic adventure. The ancestress, who was also high born, followed her lover out into this western world to share with him here the fortunes which English aris-tocracy would not allow. Againsther family's wishes she married her lower born lover, JEFFREY FERRIS,and went with him to the Western world to share with him there the fortunes which English aristocracy would not allow in England.
( There is no documentation to back this up.)

The name Ferris is from LEICESTERSHIRE, House of Feriers, Farers, Fereis, Ferrerr, Ferreis, Ferrers or Ferris, the first member of which (in England) was from Henry de Feriers (Ferrers), son of Guelchelme de Feriers, Master of the Horse of the Duke of Normandy, to whom William the Conqueror gave large grants of land in the three shires of Staf-ford, Derby, and Leicester. It is said that Guelchelme de Feriers took an ac-tive part in the Battle of Hastings (1066), having in-vaded England with the Conqueror. From Guelchelme de Feriers and Wil-liam de Ferers, Earl of Derby, descends the Ferrers of Groby, who bore for their paternal coat of arms gu seven mascles or, a can-ton erm, while their Westchester descendants carried gu a fluer de lis or a canton erm witha crescent for the difference, or multum in florius arte, freely translated is "much in the flowery arts", indicating that the family was distinguished for its love of horticulture. There are a couple of variations of the Ferris Coat of Arms as shown.

Story of One Pioneer (with RWN modifications) From "Greenwich Old& New":

In spite of the important part that Daniel Patrick played in the founding of Greenwich, it was men like Jeffrey Ferris and Angell Husted who actually made this settlement. They were the men who remained permanently, and raised large families, which con-tinued to live here for generations, forming the background of the town. So, to use Jeffrey Ferris as an example we must go back a few years to the settlement of Watertown just outside of Boston.
Along with a great number of restless, energetic Englishmen who left their homes for various reasons, Jeffrey Ferris came to American in 1634. Born in Leichestershire, England, in 1610, he was twenty-four whenhe came to Watertown. Over six feet tall, with blue eyes and red hair, he was a typical middle class Englishman, God-fearing, respectable,industrious and as later events proved, a good businessman. He was enough of a Puritan to be eligible as a citizen of Watertown, for his name was registered as a freeman of Boston in May 6, 1635. At that timechurch membership was the essential requirement for citizenship. This entitled him to be called Goodman Ferris.
From a number of small clues, it may be assumed that Jeffrey Ferris was not a rigid Puritan. He may have come to America for freedom of worship, but undoubtedly there were other more practical reasons as well. Goodman Ferris wanted land of his own, but he also wanted the rights of a free landowner. There was plenty of land around Boston, but little freedom. Not to repeat the well known story of how the citizensof Newtown, Watertown, and Dorchester separated from Boston and migrated to Connecticut, enough of this history must be told to explain howand why Jeffrey Ferris finally came to Greenwich.
At this time Boston was controlled by a few rigid Puritans who had organized a theocratic and completely undemocratic form of government. The citizens of the three settlements around Boston were not allowed togovern themselves independently, nor were they even fairly represented in Boston although they were subject to taxation. The rules and regulations regarding personal conduct were unbelievably strict. It wasnot only irregular characters like John Underhill and Daniel Patrick who were punished for minor crimes. Many very respectable law abidingcitizens were fined or put in the stocks for trivial offenses.
Men like Jeffrey Ferris who had broken home ties and sailed across the ocean to a wilderness for the sake of freedom were not likely to submit to such a situation. At the same time glowing statements were coming to Boston concerning the fertile meadows and rich valley land along the Connecticut River.
A separation from Boston and migration to Connecticut (Wethersfield in 1635) was inevitable, and in the company of a number of families from Watertown, Jeffrey Ferris acquired four acres of land and built a house. Evidently he planned to stay and settle down but within four years he was moving again ( to Stamford in 1641 where he was among the first settlers). He was vital to the community's development, and though he himself did move to Greenwich eventually, he gave homes in Stamford to two of his sons. At Stamford, Jeffrey had a mill complex complete with dam, head and tail races, the mill itself with its heavy grinding stones, and enough land along the sides of the river for both repairs and business expansion. He came with the first colony from Wethersfield, and in 1656 is one of the eleven Greenwich men who petitionedto be accepted under the New Haven jurisdiction. He later, settled within the bounds of present Town of Greenwich and in 1656 was one of the eleven Greenwich men who petitioned to be accepted under the New Haven jurisdiction, where he died May 31, 1666. Wethersfield is the oldest town in Connecticut. Pyquag, it indian name, was changed in 1635 to Watertown, and later to Wethersfield. JEFFREY FERRIS was among those restless men, who, with Rev. Richard Denton, quit Wethersfield for Toquams, afterwards Rippowams (Stamford) CT, in 1640-41, but remained in Stamford only a short time. He is on the list of first 29 landholders of Stamford. In July, 1640, his name appears as one of the 10 pioneers who settled at Monakewego, or Greenwich Point.

So far Jeffrey Ferris had made two moves toward freedom, but from thepoint of view of freedom Wethersfield proved a disappointment. Worsethat than, there was no peace because of several strong minded ministers who were all trying to rule the small settlement at once. There were infinite quarrels and disputes over religion, politics, and the distribution of land. Because of these unsatisfactory conditions at Wethersfield, Jeffrey came to Greenwich. Land, always land, was what he wanted more than anything, so this time, quite on his own, he negotiateda purchase with the Indians here.
July 18, 1640, is the commonly accepted date for the founding of Greenwich because the Indian deed was signed on that day. Although historians are literally quite accurate when they assert that the settlement was established after the purchase, there are, nevertheless, a number of reasons for assuming that a few pioneers came here before July, 1640.
As an addition to the purchase of Daniel Patrick and Robert Feaks, itis noted that "Keofram hath soulde all his Right in ye above sd necksunto Jeffre Ferris." This notation suggests that Goodman Ferris was here transacting a deal with the Indian Chief Keofferam before the coming of Daniel Patrick and Robert Feaks. When signing his mark, Sachem Keofferam made the picture of a blockhouse with a projection or lookout box. In front and behind the house he drew lines which may have been an indication of plowed ground. Indian signatures were really picture writing, and the marks usually depicted something significant inrelation to the document, which was signed. Such being the case, it is quite likely that there actually was a block house on this land bought by Jeffrey, and of course this house was his home. If so, it musthave been built before July 1640.
If we assume that Jeffrey was one of the first landowners, it is possible to go a step further and attribute the naming of Greenwich to this particular founder, who was born in LEICESTERSHIRE, England. About 1590 in England, there was an adventurer named Richard Ferris who served as messenger in ordinary at the court of Queen Elizabeth. At this time the Earl of Leicester was the Queen's favorite, so it is more thanlikely that this member of the Ferris family from LEICESTERSHIRE received an appointment through his influence. The favorite summer residence of Queen Elizabeth was at Greenwich where her yacht lay alongsidethe wharf in front of the palace. As a member of the court, Richard Ferris must have visited there frequently. In this way, Jeffrey Ferris, as a son or nephew (?), might have become very fond of the village of Green-wich and when he came to New England he followed the custom of other emigrants by naming the town after that place in England to which he was most attached.
Jeffrey Ferris was married three times. His second wife was SusannahLockwood, widow of Robert Lockwood, so from the very beginning of Greenwich history these two families were united. It is said that 10,000 of their descendants can be traced and many of them still live in Greenwich today.
Angell Husted is another founder of Greenwich whose family still lives there. Robert Husted, his father, owned land in both Stamford and Greenwich and was a witness to the purchase of Patrick and Feaks. Angell Husted was a special witness to the purchase made by Jeffrey Ferris, and it is claimed by the Husted family that he was here as early as1638.
It would be impossible to name all the families who came to Greenwichover the period of the next twenty or thirty years but it is interesting to notice that a majority of them came here by the way of Watertown and Wethersfield just as Goodman Ferris did. Some of these familiessettled for a time in Fairfield where Jeffrey Ferris also lived for afew years because, as a loyal Englishman, he resented the Dutch jurisdiction, which Daniel Patrick had forced upon Greenwich.
The Indians - Undoubtedly the dangerous situation due to the Indians was another reason why Jeffrey Ferris left Greenwich for several years. Almost at once the Indians became the most difficult problem with which the first settlers had to contend. There were numerous raids as well as individual attacks on helpless families.

From The Winthrop Woman - extracted
When on the morning of the purchase Elizabeth explained this to Daniel, he laughed, saying A So be it then! We'll sign this on the confounded rock, if you and your squaw are so set on it. 'm not the rascal to gainsay two determined women. What do we say, men? He turned to the five other Englishmen who stood by his hut door and were to act as witnesses. These were Jeffrey Ferris, a lean taciturn farmer of thirty, with a crest of auburn hair near as red as Patrick's. Ferris had decided to establish himself in Rippowam, or Stamford, five miles away since that tract had just been bought by the New Haven Colony, but Ferrishad already wintered on land west of Totomack cove and wished also toretain this small portion of Greenwich.
..... Jeffrey Ferris said nothing, because he never spoke idly and was in a hurry to finish these negotiations and get back to his patch of corn, which was ready for picking.

Jeffrey next married Sussanah Lockwood in 1659.

Jeffrey next married Judith Feake in 1662 in Stamford, Fairfield , CT.


1489. Mary Ferris was born in England and died on 31 May 1658 in Stamford Town, CT.

Mary married Jeffrey Ferris in England.

1490. John Reynolds was born between 1590 and 1612 in (Ipwich), England and died on 31 Aug 1664 in Stamford, CT.

General Notes: John Reynolds, the immigrant ancestor, was born in England around 1612. While his parentage is presently unknown, he may have been related to Robert Reynolds (1580?-1659) of Boston. John's homelot was very close to that ocupied by Robert's daughters Ruth and Mary.

He married SARAH ------ in England, possibly in Ipswich. She was bornabout 1614, in England; while several surnames have been advanced forher, including Chesterfield, the identities of her birthplace and parents are presently unproven. It is unclear exactly when John came to New England. Sarah Reynolds was a passenger on the Elizabeth which sailed from Ipswich on 30 April 1634, but there is no mention of John on the passanger manifest. While nothing in the ship's records names her as the wife of John Reynolds, significant circumstantial evidence establishes the connection. More importantly, Sarah's name appears between Robert Day and his wife and Robert Goodall and his wife. John's homelot in 1635 was located between the lots of these two men. It is probable that he came over before her to prepare the way, and that once hewas settled he sent for her and she came over with friends. He may have come in the 1630 Winthrop-Saltonstall fleet. One possible problem with this assumption is that if he did come in 1630 and if his wife wasborn in 1614, that would mean they were married when she was only sixteen. While not entirely improbable, it would have been a bit unusual for her to marry at that age only to have her new husband sail off to New England leaving her alone for five years.

In any event, John was settled in Watertown, Massachusetts Bay Colony, by 1635; on 6 May of that year he was made a freeman. His name appears in the records there only twice more. On 14 November 1635, he was named to a committee charged with "devis[ing] to every man his propriety and Meadow & upland that is plowable, and the rest to be common." The second mention appears in a section of the records describing the town land grants:

" John Reinolds: An Homestall of Five acres and halfe by estimation bounded on the North with the highway, the South with Isaac Mixer, and the East with John Sherman -- granted to him."

The phrase "granted to him" would imply that he was the first non-Indian owner, and that he was thus in Watertown at or shortly after its founding. His homelot was a short diatance to the south of Strawberry Hill.

At its founding, Watertown contained only about sixty families. But over the next four years its population swelled with new immigrants to the point that the towns of Dorchester, Newton and Watertown began encroaching on each other. The original settlers began to complain "of straitness for want of land, especially meadow." Some of them consequently began to set their sights on the unsettled lands to the south in the Connecticut River valley. In the summer of 1634, a small group of Watertown men led by John Oldham went south and settled Wethersfield, hartford County, Connecticut. After hearing favorable reports about thenew location, a larger group of about sixty families set off in October 1635 for Wethersfield followed by others. John set off to join themsometime between 14 November 1635, when his name last appears in the town records, and 25 July 1636, when it does not appear in the "Great Land Division."

His three and one half acre homelot there was on High Street, in the center of town, third from the meeting house between the lots of John Gibbs and Andrew Ward. On 11 February 1640/1, he received a houselot and several other pieces of land; they were eventually sold to John Hollister. In 1641, his ear mark for his livestock was recorded in the town records.

Internal dissensions soon arose among the members of the church, withthe result that the town quickly split into two opposing factions. When it became apparent that the rift could not be mended, the more progressive party -- led by Rev. Richard Denton -- decided to strike out and form their own town under the jurisdiction of the neighboring New Haven Colony. On 1 July 1640, Nathaniel Turner had purchased from the Indians -- on behalf of New Haven -- a large 128 square mile tract of land in southwestern Connecticut which today includes the towns of Darien and Stamford. On 30 October 1640, Andrew Ward and Robert Coe purchased the tract -- called Rippowanis -- from the colony on behalf of themselves and about twenty other planters. Thirty men, John among them, volunteered as pioneers for the new settlement. These men subscribed 100 bushels of corn to be paid to New Haven as the purchase price. Eachman received an amount of land in proportion to the amount of corn hepledged. John was eighth on the list of subcribers, pledging 3.2 bushels.

Of these thirty, twenty-eight removed to what became Stamford in the summer of 1641. On 19 October, they held their first town meeting, divided that land among the residents, and elected five men to form a provisional government; John received eleven acres. His homelot was located along the border with the neighboring town of Greenwich; he lived on the west side of South Street. At around the same time, the New Haven authorities decided that they were not satisfied with the 100 bushel payment. The new town members had to make an additional payment which was apportioned between them.

Noted events in his life were:

• He immigrated between 1630 and 1634 to From England; Immigrant Ancestor.

John married Sarah Chesterfield between 1633 and 1634 in Chesterfield, England Or Stamford, CT.

Children from this marriage were:

745       i.  Elizabeth Reynolds

         ii.  John Reynolds

        iii.  Jonathon Reynolds

         iv.  David Reynolds


1491. Sarah Chesterfield was born about 1614 in Ipwich, Suffolk, England and died on 31 Aug 1657 in Stamford , CT about age 43.

Sarah married John Reynolds between 1633 and 1634 in Chesterfield, England Or Stamford, CT.

1492. Simon Hoyt, son of John Hoyt and Ruth, was born on 20 Jan 1590 in West Hatch, Somerset, England Or Upway, Dorchester, Dorset, England, died on 1 Sep 1657 in Stamford, Fairfield, CT at age 67, and was buried in Sep 1657 in Stamford, CT.

General Notes: Simon Hoyt, the immigrant ancestor, was born England before 1593. Although it is thought by some that he was the son of John Hoyt and his wife Ruth ------, this relationship is not proven. There is some question about his place of birth and his first marriage.

Simon and his family (whether from Upway or West Hatch) left England with his purported brother-in-law Nicholas Stowers and the Sprague family of Upway aboard the Abigail with Gov. Endicott which arrived in Salem, Massachusetts Bay Colony on 6 September 1628. His name appears onthe List of the Names of Such as Are Known to Have Been in Salem and About the North Side of the Masachusetts Bay Before and in the Year 1629. He may have moved to Charlestown, Massachusetts Bay Colony, shortly thereafter. Although his name does not appear among those who petitioned to be made freemen on 19 October 1630, he took the freeman's oath on 18 May 1631.

He removed to Dorchester, _____ County around 1630, and his name first appears in the records in regards to a land grant there on 3 April 1633. On that same date, he is listed as having two cows and thus was required to put up forty feet of fence on the marsh. On 8 October of that year he was chosen a member of a committee charged with "seeing to" the fences for the East Field. He was later charged with checking the fences in the North Field. On 6 January 1633/4, it "was ordered that the marsh and swamp before Goodman Hosford and davy Wilton shall bedivided between themselves and Symon Hoyte." On 2 June 1634, it was "ordered that Goodman Witchfield and Goodman Hoyte shall have to be divided between them the marsh that lies in the north side of the neck towards Boston over against Mr. Rainsford's house in Boston, being for 8acres by estimation." On 10 February 1634/5, he was ordered to keep one of his bulls on the neck.

The last mention of him in the Dorchester records was on 17 April 1635, when it was recorded that "the Lott of medow that was Symon Hoytes,next to boston side, Joyning to John Witchfield, shall be devided betwixt Mr. Rodger Williams and Gyles Gibbs." The use of the word "was" shows that by that date he had removed to his next home -- Scituate.

In his accounting of houses built in Scituate, Rev. John Lothrop included "Goodman Haite's" as the sixteenth, on Kent Street about midway in the section of those built between September 1634 and October 1636.Simon had planting land on the third cliff, and the third lot in the Green Field to the west of Bernard Lombard's.

Around the time he removed to Scituate, he married -- either in Scituate or Dorchester -- SUSANNAH [------] (No. 107:13:4365). Her parentage is presently unknown. The attribution to her of the surname Smith is incorrect and is probably due to an entry in old records which notethat one of the houses built in Scituate was "The Smiths Goodman Hait's brother." However, "the Smiths" most likely refered to the town blacksmith, and not to a family of that name. Colonial records almost always refer to a piece of property belonging to the head of household, rather than the family at large.

Simon sold his home to a Mr. Bower, and had removed to Windsor, Hartford County, Connecticut, by 1639; his name appears last on a list of those who joined Rev. Ephraim Hewett on his way from England to Windsor. On 7 May 1640, he was freed "from watch & ward untill there be further Order taken by the Courte." This may have been because he and thefamily lived away from the other settlers; they had enough to do to protect themselves from attack without having to travel to gurad those that lived in the village. He was deeply religious, and served as a church deacon.

He sold his lands in Windsor in 1646, and moved to Fairfield, Fairfield County, Connecticut. He purchased lands there from John Green, and received a land grant of two and a half acres on 6 March 1649. He eventually moved to Stamford, Fairfield County, where he lived on the north side of East Street, just before his death on 1 September 1657.

Simon Hoyt4 was born Abt. 1593 in West Hatch, Co Somerset, EN, and died 01 September 1657 in Stamford, CT5. He married (1) Jane Stoodlie6 Bef. 1618 in Marshwood, Co Dorset, EN. He married (2) Susanna(h)7 Abt. 1632 in [prob] Scituate, MA. Simon is also said to have had a first wife, Deborah Stowers, daughter of Walter Stowers. This has been proven to be in error and the first wife of Simon Hoyt is now proven to be "Jane Stoodlie". [Hoyt's Issue, Spring 1997, :1358]. [see GMB, II:1032 for explanation pertaining to second wife's maiden name, which is not "Smith".] Her maiden name remains undiscovered. The reference in early records to "the Smith" was reference to the village "Blacksmith" not to the maiden name of 2d wife, Susanna(h).

Noted events in his life were:

• He immigrated in 1629 to On Ship "Lyons Whelp".

• He had a religion on 19 Apr 1635 in Joined In Scituate With Wife Susannah.

• Freeman: 18 May 1631.

• He was employed in Planter.

• He had a residence in Charlestwon, MA; Dorchester-1633; Scituate-1635; Windsor, CT-1639; Fairfield, CT 1649; Stamford CT 1657.

Simon married Susanna in 1632 in Prob Scituate, Mass.

Children from this marriage were:

1494. Francis Bell, son of Abraham Bell and Katherine Bullfinch, was born in 1620 in England and died on 8 Jan 1689 in Fairfield, CT at age 69.

General Notes: Francis Bell (Abraham-1) was born aound 1620 in England. He was the son of Abraham Bell and his wife Catherine, and may have come from Yorkshire.

He married REBECCA ------ ; when, where and the identities of her parents are presently unknown. They had at least three children:

i Jonathan b.c. 1641 m. (1) Mercy Crane
m. (2) Susan Pierson
ii Rebecca b.c. 1643 m. Jonathan Tuttle
iii Mary b.c. 1646 m. (1) Joshua Hoyt
m. (2) Joseph Turney

It is thought that he came to Connecticut with Saltonstall from the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1630. He was an early settler of Wethersfield, Hartford County, Connecticut. He served as a lieutenant in the Wethersfield militia, although he was apparently not a freeman.

Around 1641, he removed to Stamford (then called Rippowams), Fairfield County, Connecticut, where he was one of the first settlers. He hada grant of seven acres there, and his house was on the corner of Eastand South Streets. On 28 February 1661/2, he sold land to John Holly (No. 106: 6:2178): "In ye East Feeld, three accres of upland . . . & apsell of mayzeland adjoyning to it."

In Stamford, he served as a Deputy to the New Haven Colony legislature for several years. Elected as the town's first Deputy on 27 October1641, he served again in May 1653 and was reelected to that post every May until 1659, and every May from 1661 through 1663 and in Januaryand May 1664. In addition, in 1644 he was appointed to a commitee charged with travelling to Boston to secure the services of a minister for the new town. He was elected Magistrate in Stamford in May 1652, 1654 to 1656, and 1658 to 1663. Finally, he served as a Lieutenant in the Stamford Train Band in 1643, and still held that post in May 1655. He was confirmed in the position by the new Connecticut legislature inOctober 1666.

In addition, on 22 March 1669, he was appointed to a committee to oversee construction of a new meeting house made of stone: "if thay can'ot git a house built w'th stone, thay have liberty to get it dun w'th timber." The subject of the meeting house ? its size, shape, and construction materials ? was a source of controversy in the community for two years. On 26 October 1670, he was named to another committee having"full power com'ited to them to procure a ston new meeting house . .. to be for ye publick worship of God in this place." But the disagreements persisted, and on 29 March 1671 Holly and another man were chosen "to take ye minds of ye town conscerned in the meeting house, to know their mindes . . . for what forme & figure they have a mind to build." Apparently, no compromise could be discovered; six days later, ata town meeting,

"it was agreede that the finall desition & diference respecting the forme or figuer of the new meeteing house is to be done p' a solem ordinance of God, in drawing of lott; & ye reason of this way is because the towne being not capable to desyde it . . . . The solem ordinance being as above voted, the lott carid it for a square meeting house as above . . . to be thirty & eight foott square & the height of ye wall tobe twelve foott . . . [with] a teurett on ye tope & for dementions ofit, is left to ye comity & carpenders to order itt."

On the following day, the town "doth chuse, conferme and apoyt" Hollyand four others to be a committee "for ye caring on ye work about ye new meeting [house]." Samuel Holly and Francis then resigned as Selectmen, the "reason is because they are chosen to be of the comity for the meeting house & desyerd theire release."

On 23 December 1670, "Left. Francis Bell" was appointed to lay out a house lot for Matthew Bellemy, the new schoolmaster. On 25 February 1673, he was one of a committee of three chosen to seat the townsmen in the meeting house.

Rebecca died in Stamford on 17 May 1684. An inventory of her estate included the following:

" A red broad cloth petticoat and a red tamy petticoat, A fine cloth westcot a gray serge petticoat, A serge gown a red serge wescot,A gray serge strait bodied gown a short loose coat, A mohair petticoat a homespun gown almost new, A serge green apron tamy green apron, Ablue apron 3 pieces of old silk, A caster hat an old caster hat, Dresings 3 caps and seven neckhandkechiefs, 3 single hankerchers & nine caps, 1 white cap 14 coifs 4 headbands 2 old neckcloths a pair of fore sleeves & a coyle, 5 long linen neckcloths 2 black caps, 1 fine homespun shift 1 hollon apron 1 linen apron, 1 linen shift 1 linen shift, 1 cotton shift 1 cotton shift 1 hollon shift 1 linen shift, 1 new cottonshift, 1 pair of fine sheets, 1 pair of fine sheets to Rebecca Tuttleon ye island."

Francis survived his wife by several years, probably living with -- or at least being cared for by -- his son Jonathan whose home was on the same lot. On 26 May 1685, he was issued a patent by the General Court of Connecticut confirming his ownership of lands in Stamford purchased originally from the Indians. That he is titled "Mister" in the record is an indication of his social standing.

He died in Stamford on 8 January 1689/90. Cotton Mather eulogized himas "a firm Puritan in form and principle." His will, dated 24 May 1689 and proved on 11 March 1689/90, provided:

1896. Samuel Pond was born in 1609 in Groton, Suffolk, England and died on 14 Mar 1654 in Windsor, Hartford Co., CT at age 45.

General Notes: At the same time that Robert Pond, of Milton was made a freeman (1642), there was one Samuel Pond who married and settled in Windsor, CT. He too, might have been a son of Robert of Dorchester, or of John, or of Thomas. In either case, he must have been a lad when brought by hisfather from England.

It is said that Windsor, CT was settled in 1635, mostly by emigrants from towns in Massachusetts, and so largely from Dorchester as to makeit necessary to re-organize the church there, as well as the town; and as that was the time that Thomas came from England, it is very natural to conclude that he, listening to the glowing accounts of a more congenial clime, joined in with the rest: and as Samuel might have beena son of Thomas, his residence might have been at Windsor on their coming from England, or soon after.

We hear no more of Thomas any more than we do of John. But Samuel marrying, acquiring land, dying, and having an estate to settle, there isa commencement of records from which we are enabled to trace, as we believe in an unbroken line. There is, therefore, a strong presumptive proof that the Ponds of America descended from one, or more, of three brothers. If there is no truth in the tradition it seems to me that itcould not have been handed down through all branches of Ponds to the present day. The case is here presented, not as an undoubted truth, but as a probable one.

His earliest existence in Windsor, Connecticut is when he purchased land on Silver Street in 1641.

Samuel married Sarah Ware on 18 Nov 1642 in Windsor, Hartford Co., CT.

The child from this marriage was:

948       i.  Samuel Pond


1897. Sarah Ware was born in Jan 1617 and died on 6 Jul 1665 in Guilford, New Haven Co., CT at age 48.

Sarah married Samuel Pond on 18 Nov 1642 in Windsor, Hartford Co., CT.

1898. Thomas Blatchley was born in 1615 in Colerine, Wiltshire, England and died on 15 Feb 1672 in Boston, Suffolk Co., MA at age 57.

General Notes: The history of the Blatchley family in America begins on 28 Jul 1635 when Thomas departed London, England on the vessel "Hopeful", bound for Boston, Massachusetts under Captain Thomas BABB, in the company of Thomas and Mary TREDWELL. They and others in their company carried certificates from the minister of St. Giles, Cripplegate, stating that they "are conformable to the Church of England." Though Thomas's name does not appear in the registers of that parish, the certificate may be taken as an indication that he did not belong to one of the non-conforming sects and did not emigrate for religious reasons.

Thomas's movements during the years 1635-1637 are not known, but after 1637 he was a resident in Connecticut, where he reportedly took part in the Pequot War, a war inspired by the alleged murder of a Bostontrader by Pequot Indians. The colonists sent an expedition into Indian lands to burn the corps and destroy the villages. Captain John Mason made a surprise attack on a Pequot fort and nearly annihilated the tribe. Following the war, in 1639, Thomas resided in Hartford, Connecticut, holding land on the east side of the Connecticut River at Hockanum. However, he was listed as a transient at Hartford, and removed to New Haven where he became active in a marine hauling business.

Thomas's reasons for settling in Connecticut are unclear, though it may be surmised that either religion or economics provided the motivation. The Massachusetts Colony was fundamentally a theocracy, and its leaders tended to be as intolerant of religious dissenters as the Anglican Church had been in England. Consequently, religious differences provided a major impetus to migration outward from the Massachusetts Colony. Economics was also a major motivation for migration (and has been though out the history of the nation): 1] the cost of land declined with distance from settled areas, 2] land grants from the Crown were easier to obtain in frontier areas, and 3] the intensity of business competition tended to diminish in the less populated areas. Whatever his actual reasons, he was among the earliest settlers of what is now knownas the state of Connecticut, having arrived there sometime between 1635 and 1638.

In June 1643, Thomas was one of the four persons responsible for plotting and surveying a new town called Branford, and for making arrangements for sale and distribution of land within the new town. In 1645, Thomas, Susanna, and Aaron moved to Branford where they remained for 28years. During these years, Thomas appears to have continued in business as a teamster, transporting cattle and other livestock for hire.

Noted events in his life were:

• He immigrated on 28 Jul 1635 to He Immigrated To The Us Aboard The Vessel "Hopewell" Whose Commander Was Capt. Babb.

• Misc: Died On Trading Ship Enroute To Boston, MA Burial: Bradford, New Haven, CT.

General Notes: "...came to America with his parents in 1635 and lived in Hartford, CT... first wife, about 1642, possibly Hattie Nickerson and settled in Saybrook, CT, about 1645...was there at the division of lands in 1648 and became a large landowner in Saybrook and also in Lyme...bought a large tract from the Indians in Lyme which land was subsequently exchanged with the town for various other parcels by his sons Thomas and Richard...He obtained for the town of Lyme the tract of land that afterwards made the town of Salem: in April 1669, Chapeto, a kinsman of Uncas, gave to William Lord of Lyme, eight miles square; subsequently known as the Paugwonk lands, and appears to have included all or nearly all of the present township of Salem; this deed was confirmed to his sons in 1681..."

William settled in Old Saybrook in 1639. There is a Lord Place in that town also, at a location where some of the Lord land was. The Old Saybrook Historical Society has much information and will do lookups for a price. He married twice and had 7 children by each wife. Wife #1was either Sarah Adams or Hattie Nickerson or unknown, depending on which source you read. Wife #2 was Lydia Buckland Brown.

I saw Thomas Lord's and Dorothy Bird Lord's grave(not original headstone, but put there later by the Historical Soc.) at the Ancient Burying Ground in Hartford. His name and sons Richard and Thomas Jr. are also inscribed on the Founders' Monument there and their land was right behind the graveyard. The Hartford Brook referred to was actually a small tributary of the Connecticut River that flowed past the Lord landsbut has since been redirected under downtown Hartford so that a street could be built over it. Thomas Lord sent his eldest son, Capt. Richard Lord, to Cambridge, Mass. in 1632 to select a desirable location for the Lord family and his friends, Thomas Hooker and Gov. Haynes. The family (including the five younger children) arrived in Boston in 1635 and lived at Cambridge for less than a year, going to Conneticut in 1636 where Richard hade scouted the area. They very likely were among the first party led by their friend Thomas Hooker. It is also interesting to note that some of the Lords, crossed the Atlantic several times (even with their families) and some even settled and died back in England after having being born and lived in America in the early days.
There is only a passing reference to William Lord, (b.1623) saying: "He was of Saybrook and afterward, about 1645, of Lynne, Conn."

General Notes: There is confusion around who Kenelm's wife was. Catherine or Elizabeth is the first name usually associated. Then there is Elizabeth Foliot, Catherine Bucke; or Catherine Morgan.

Notes for Elizabeth Foliot*:
Elizabeth Foliot*, born 1540 in Pyrton, Worchestershire, England; died Unknown.
NEHGR 124: 182-3 REF Winslow1. John G. Hunt conjectured in the 1960s that Kenelm's wife was:
Elizabeth Foliot (b. 1540), dau. of John Foliot, Esq (d. 1579) and first wife Eleanor Moore. Eleanor Moore was the daughter of John Moore of Dunclent, Kidderminster, Worcester, England (d. 1533) and Eleanor Milbourne. Eleanor Milbourne was the daughter of Simon Milbourne (1435-1522). REF Winslow1. The basis for the John G. Hunt theories are two letters where Herbert Pelham and Sir Arthur Hesilrige both write to John Winthrop and refer to Edward Winslow as "my loving cosen." It seemsthat their wives and Winthrop were all cousins. But how? Their ancestry is known and the only hole in Winslow's ancestry
is his paternal grandmother, the wife of Kenelm Winslow of Kempsey. The problem with the above theory (among other things) is that the cousinship is 5th cousins and good for only Hesilrige. Hunt himself ruled this out in 1985, but he conjectured that Kenelm may have married secondly Katharine
Folliot, later (a sister of Elizabeth). He did prove extension financial dealings between the Folliots and Winslows, but they lived only 10miles apart and this is not surprising. r. Kempsey, England

Children of Kenelm Winslow* and Elizabeth Foliot* are:
3852 i. Edward Winslow*, born October 17, 1560 in St. Andrews Parish, Droitwich, Worcestershire, Eng.; died 1620 in Droitwich, Worcestershire, Eng; married (1) Eleanor Pelham* 1583 in Droitwich, Worcestershire, Eng; married (2) Magdalene Ollyver* November 03, 1594.

General Notes: 1620 Mayflower passenger with wife Mary and sons Love and Wrestling;4th signer of the Mayflower Compact; Reverend Elder of the Pilgrims Church at Plymouth. William Brewster was the Reverend Elder of the Pilgrim's church at Plymouth, since their pastor John Robinson remained behind in Leyden, Holland with the majority of the congregation which planned to come to America at a later time. Brewster was a fugitive from the King of England, because he had published a number of religiouspamphlets while in Leyden which were critical or opposed the tenets of the Church of England. He had been a member of the Separatist church movement from its very beginning, and was the oldest Mayflower passenger to have participated at the First Thanksgiving, in his early fifties. William Bradford wrote a lot about William Brewster who playeda key role in much of Plymouth life in Of Plymouth Plantation.

Plymouth Colony: Its History and People 1620-1691
Biographical Sketches; Brewster, William
For all that we know about him, there is much more that we do not know; for example, we do not know the dates of his birth and death. Various accounts differ showing birthdates in 1559, 1560, 1563, 1564, or 1566-67, and death dates ca. 18 April 1643, or ca. 16 April 1644. Dexter, "The True Date of the Birth and Death of Elder Brewster," NEHGR 18:18, gives good reasons for believing that he was born in 1566 or 1567,and that he died in April 1644. John G. Hunt, "The Mother of Elder William Brewster of the Mayflower," NEHGR 124:250, makes a good case that his parents were William and Mary (Smythe) (Simkinson) Brewster of Scrooby, Nottinghamshire. He entered Peterhouse, Cambridge University,on 3 December 1580, but apparently did not graduate. He became an assistant to William Davison, one of Queen Elizabeth's Secretaries of State, and he went to Holland with Davison in 1585 on a diplomatic mission. When Davison was imprisoned by Queen Elizabeth as a scapegoat for the execution of Mary Queen of Scots, Brewster returned to Scrooby and subsequently was appointed to his father's old post there as postmaster, holding that position until 1607. He was imprisoned as the result of the betrayal of a ship's master when he was leading a group of Separatists fleeing England for Holland. On being released, he went to Holland, where he became ruling elder of the separatist church, supporting himself and his family by running a printing business (Lucy Hall Greenlaw, "Early Generations of the Brewster Family," NEHGR 53:109; Bradford [Ford] 2:342-50). William Brewster arrived at Plymouth on the 1620 Mayflower accompanied by his wife Mary and their sons Love and Wrestling. He continued as ruling elder of the Plymouth Church until he died. Bradford summed up his work: "He would labour with his hands in the feilds as long as he was able; yet when the church had no other minister, he taught twise every Saboth, and both powerfully and profitably, to the great contentment of the hearers, and their comfortable edification. He did more in this behalfe in a year, then many that have their hundreds a year doe in all their lives?. He had a singuler good gift in prayer, both publick and private, in ripping up the hart and conscience before God, in the humble confession of sinne, and begging themercies of God in Christ for the pardon of same" (Bradford [Ford] 2:348-50). His inventory (MD 3:15) shows a private library of hundreds ofbooks, mostly religious, but displaying a considerable breadth of interest for a man of his times.

Noted events in his life were:

• He was employed in Printer; Postmaster In Scrooby, England.

• He had a residence in Lived In Scrooby Manor, In England.

• Other: Mayflower Passenger.

• Misc: Considered A Founding Father ( Surviving Settler) Of New Plymouth.

General Notes: 1620 Mayflower passenger. from Caleb Johnson
The English origins of Mrs. Mary Brewster are not known. A number oftheories have been proposed over the years, including maiden names such as Wentworth, Love, Wyrall, and others. However, no proof to support any of these theories has been found.

We know that Mary was born about 1569, because she stated she was 40 years old in an affidavit filed in Leiden, Holland on 25 June 1609. She was presumably from the vicinity of Doncaster, Yorkshire or Scrooby, Nottinghamshire, as she married William Brewster there about 1592 and had their first son Jonathan born there a year later. She next hada daughter Patience, born about 1600 or somewhat earlier. About 1606, the church congregation began more formally meeting at the Scrooby manor, where she and husband William resided. About this time, pressure from the English authorities was mounting, and the meetings became more and more secretive. She gave birth to another daughter at this time, which they named Fear. The couple fled just over a year later for Holland with the other members of the congregation, and in Leiden they buried an unnamed child: presumably one that had died in infancy.In 1611, she gave birth to a son they named Love, and two or three years later gave birth to their last son, which they named Wrestling.

Mary came to Plymouth on the Mayflower in 1620 with husband William, and her two youngest children Love and Wrestling. Mary was one of only five adult women to survive the first winter, and one of only four women to survive to the so-called "first" Thanksgiving in 1621.

He was a planter in 1650, but before 1656 seems to have united with the church, as he is recorded as a freeman in the latter year. His will, made on August 27, 1670, leaves to his son, Thomas "the mare I usually rede on and my biggest brass kettle," "my best sute and my cloake and my bed and one payre of sheets and all my other bedding."

Richard, if our surmise is correct, came to New England with his brothers in 1635 when he was about 12 or 13 years old. It is probable thathe resided with his brother Francis in Salem, Massachusetts until their removal to Connecticut, by way of Long Island, but not liking the place, they came over to Guilford.

3806. Thomas Leffingwell was born in 1624 in White Colne, Essex, England and died in Norwich, New London Co., CT.

General Notes: About the year 1637, only a short time after the first settlement of New England, there appears among the forests of Connecticut a young hunter calling himself Thomas Leffingwell. The prototype, perhaps, of Cooper's "Deerslayer", he was even at that early day on friendly terms with the Mohegan Indians, and especially with their young chief, Uncas;nor is it improbable, that occasionally he lived among them, acquiring their language and sharing their adventures.

Born in White Colne, Essex, England and christen on Mar 1624, how didsuch a young men come to be hunting in the forest of Connecticut in 1637? The landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth had occurred only seventeen years before. Boston had been founded in 1630; Hooker with his little band of Puritans had pushed through the forests of Massachusetts and laid the foundations of Hartford in 1635; New Haven was settled in 1637, and Saybrook the same year. These are the earliest years of Connecticut history. If at this time, we find among these sturdy pioneersa youth, without parents, the more probable explanation would be thathe had emigrated in charge of some older relative. He may have emigrated and come to Saybrook in charge of an older married sister, who mayhave died soon after, leaving the youth to make his own way.

Let us now turn from the region of speculation, to the story of his life.

Our earliest witness is the record of the General Court of Connecticut under date of 20 Mar 1649/50. "Matthew Griswold and Tho. Leppingwell" had presented a "petition from the inhabitants of Saybrook," setting forth their reasons for feeling aggrieved and wrong by the previousaction of the General Court. This first establishes that Thomas was residing with a citizen's right group in Saybrook, and second, being associated with Mattew Griswold, indicates the high position that he held so early in his career in his new home.

The next public record which introduced him is that found in the samejournal of the General Court under the date of 15 May 1651. It statesthat "John Dyer testifieth in Court that uppon a time this spring, MrBlinman and another of Pequett, being at Seabrooke, desired this deponent to carry them over the River in a cannoe, towards Pequett, which hee did; and that when hee had sett them ashore, it being wett weather, hee tarried there awhile, in wch time of his tarrying there came three Indians to him, and Thomas Leppingwell was with them, wch said Indians desired this deponent to sett them over in the cannoe to Seabrook."

The testimony shows that the Indians were in search of some one to take them over, from the east side of the Connecticut river to Saybrook,and the journal proceeds to show they were put on board a Dutch vessel for the purpose of obtaining clothing.

Now a heroic story about Thomas Leffingwell from Dr. Trumbull's "History of Connecticut": "Uncas, with a small band of Mohegan Indians was encamped on a point of land projecting into the river, and there closely besieged by their most inveterate foes, the Narragansetts. Finding himself in danger of being cut off by the enemy, he managed to send tohis friends, the English Colony at Saybrook, the news of his extremity, with perhaps some appeal for help. Upon this intelligence, one Thomas Leffingwell, an ensign at Saybrook, an enterprising, bold man, loaded a canoe with beef, corn, and peas, and under cover of the night paddled from Saybrook into the Thames, and had the address to get the whole into the fort. The enemy soon perceiving that Uncas was relieved, raised the siege. For this service Uncas gave said Leffingwell a deed of a great part, if not the whole of the town of Norwich." In Jun 1659, Uncas, with his two sons, Owaneco and Attawanhood, by a more formaland authentic deed, made over unto said Leffingwell, John Mason, Esq., the Rev. James Fitch, and others, consisting of thirty-five proprietors, the whole township of Norwich, which is about nine miles square.

Thomas was one of the first settlers of Norwich, and its representative in 1662. He was an active partisan for many years when he was a lieutenant in Philip's war.

Thomas married Mary White about 1646 in Saybrook, Middlesex Co., CT.

3816. Edward "Immigrant" Hazen was born on 14 Dec 1614 in Cadney, Lincolnshire, England and died on 22 Jul 1683 in Rowley, Essex Co., MA at age 68.

General Notes: Edward Hazen was born in Cadney, Lincolnshire, England where he was baptized on December 14, 1614. He was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth Hazen.
We have not determined the exact date of arrival nor the ship on which Edward arrived. First mention of him is in a 1647 Rowley land transaction granting him three acres of meadow lying on the south east sideof John Smith?s meadow. We know he had a wife Elizabeth who died at Rowley September 18, 1649, but nothing more is known about her. He married again in March of 1650 to Hannah Grant, daughter of Thomas and Jane Grant. This couple, along with their four children, came from England in 1638.

By 1661 Edward Hazen had attained a relatively high degree of prosperity. He was also a man of influence and importance. Beginning in 1650, at a town meeting, he was chosen as one of the four overseers. This was repeated in 1651, 1654, 1660, 1661 & 1662. In I669 he was chosen as a selectman. He served on Trial Jury at times and was later chosen one of the four judges.

Edward died at Rowley and was buried on 22 July 1683. His widow married Lt. George Browne in 17 March 1683/84 at Haverhill. Lt. Browne adopted her youngest son, Richard Hazen. Hannah died at Haverhill in February 1715/16.
At least two of Edward?s sons took part in King Philip?s War and manydescendants served in the Revolutionary War.

He married about 1627 ANNE BUSBY, born 1607-08 in Norwich; daughter of Nicholas and Bridget (Cocke) Busby; died after 18 May 1686 at Monomoit and is probably buried near William. William was a tailor apprentice to his father in 1621 and was admitted a worsted weaver and freeman in Norwich 18 May 1632. He and hisfamily sailed from Yarmouth, England, 15 April 1637 on the ship John and Dorothy, arriving at Salem, Mass., 20 June 1637. Where the family lived for a few years is not known, but in 1641 they moved to Yarmouth, Mass. He first bought land at Monomoit from the Indian Sagamore Mattaquason in 1656 and a few years later, moved from Yarmouth with his children's families to begin the settlement of the present Chatham in the area which is now Chatham Port.

William's decision to emigrate to America probably was a result of the persecution visited upon Puritans and other nonconformists by Bishop Wren of Norfolk, coupled with a rise in taxes and a slump in the economy. These forces joined to drive over 3,000 small craftsmen out of the country over a period of several years. William and his family -- including his in-laws the Busbys -- were "desirous to go to Boston in New England and there to inhabit," and prior to their departure were examined by customs officials on 8 April 1637, in the port of Yarmouth,England. William gave his profession as weaver, his age as thirty-three, and that of his wife as twenty-eight.
