Notes for WILLIAM KNOWLES:
WILLIAM KNOWLES (1710 - 1794)

Knowles Progenitor: CT-05 (Litchfield Co.)

(based on research by Larry Daniels; Bowie, Maryland)

William Knowles (b c 1710) of New Milford, Litchfield Co., Connecticut, a Quaker, sold a house in
Warren, Bristol Co., Rhode Island to Ephraim and Rebecca Sheldon on 14 November 1752. The
deed indicated William was the son of 'After' Knowles.

No other record of 'After' Knowles has ever been found, but there was a William Knowles, a
cooper, who came from England and lived in Newport, Newport Co., Rhode Island in 1701 and had
land in Swansea (later called Warren). On 18 September 1701 this elder William Knowles of
Newport and his wife, Mary sold six lots in Swansea to John Child. Warren was incorporated in
January 1746/7, and this William Knowles was admitted freeman in Warren in 1747. William
died intestate in Warren 2 March 1747/8. His wife, Mary, died 4 January 1750/1. William's estate
was administered by Ephraim Sheldon, the same man who bought the home from the younger
William Knowles of New Milford in 1752. Therefore, Larry Daniels believed from his research
that William of New Milford, son of 'After', was the son of William of Warren.

In any event, the younger William Knowles married the widow, Innocent (Butts) Phillips in 1740.
Innocent was the daughter of Idido (Hodijah) Butts of Little Compton, Newport Co., Rhode Island.
She married first, Elisha Phillips in Little Compton on 30 September 1736 and had a son, John
born 28 May 1737. After her first husband died, Innocent married the aforementioned William
Knowles. William and Innocent had two children of their own: Elizabeth born 20 February 1741
and Arthur born 29 December 1743. An 1897 book quotes her grandson that indicates Elizabeth
had been born in Dartmouth. So William and Innocent presumably stayed in Dartmouth on
Swansea (Warren) for the next ten years. The Quaker Dartmouth records don't begin until 1792,
too late to help establish the residency of William and Innocent.

In 1751, this Knowles family moved to New Milford, Connecticut. New Milford had been first
settled in 1707 and organized in 1712. New Milford had a good-sized and growing Quaker
population. On 25 December 1751, William bought 32 acres of land in New Milford. Following the
local custom, William and Innocent then registered the births of all three children; John Phillips
as well as Elizabeth and Arthur Knowles in the New Milford town records.

The son, John Phillips married Ann Burden in New Milford on 17 November 1757. The daughter,

                                                 1
Elizabeth Knowles married Aaron Benedict on 21 November 1759. This marriage was recorded at
the Oblong, New York Monthly Meeting, witnessed by William, Innocent, Arthur, John Phillips
and his wife, Ann. The son, Arthur Knowles married Abigail Hamlin (or Hamblin), the daughter
of Ruth Seeley, a single woman in New Milford on 15 January 1761. William became one of the
regular New Milford Quaker delegates to the Oblong Monthly Meeting in the 1780s.

Innocent (Butts) Phillips Knowles died sometime after November 1759, and William later
remarried, widow Ann (Barlow) Sturges of Stamford, Fairfield Co., Connecticut. William and an
unnamed wife (undoubtedly Ann) appear in New Milford in the 1790 Census.

William himself died in New Milford in 1794. His will, dated 20 September 1794 and presented
for probate on 5 November 1794, mentions his 'aged wife' without naming her, and calls Elizabeth
and Arthur his only daughter and son.

The daughter, Elizabeth and her husband moved to New York, c 1795, and in 1812 they moved to
Ohio. The son, Arthur and his wife Abigail had at least four children: William, Elizur, Salvine
and Gideon Bennett. Two others, who were probably Arthur's children were: Arthur Knowles, Jr.
who married Urania Lamson in 1787 and Abigail Hopestill Knowles (called Hopen) who married
Eli Perry in 1796.

Arthur and Abigail died sometime between 1790 and 1800 (between censuses). Arthur's son
Elizur married Joannah Hill and had eleven children in New Milford.

The Little Thornapple River slides under the road bridge in Carlton Center and
snakes to the Thornapple which flows to the Grand which empties into Lake
Michigan that laps the shore of Illinois a few miles from where this typewriter is
clicking.
Some two hundred feet north of the bridge, on the river's east side I was born in
a still-there small frame house on June 6 in 1906 (6-6-6), to Theron Allo Cain
(1879-1972) and Mary Usborne Cain (1881-1948). Their first child, we moved to
Hastings that fall, to a rented house at the north-east or entrance corner of the
Barry County fair grounds, close to the Grand Rapids Bookcase Company
factory where Dad was foreman of the finishing room.

Dad had come to Carlton Center in Michigan's Barry County in 1884 from the
equally small village of Carlton in Upstate New York, close to Lake Ontario, with
his parents, Lymon Dillazon Cain and Sarah Shorten Cain, to live in a typical two-
story frame house west of the river. They had been attracted to the area by
Washington "Wash" Cain, Lymon's brother, who had taken up a tract of land
east of Carlton Center. Lymon, always known as "Dill", was a house painter all
his active life.

Dad spent all his early life in Carlton Center, with his brothers Clarence and
Dorr, and sisters Gazella and Stella. While he was still a small kid, a church was
built close to their house. As the steeple was finished, a haul rope was tied to Dad
and he was pulled to the high-up cross, a thrill he never forgot. Once, as a small
kid, he was in Hastings with his father and saw the foundation being installed for
the Barry County courthouse, the stones being broken and shaped by man-
powered sledge hammers. The Civil War monument, already installed nearby,
was never fully paid for, the story went.

With oxen and horses for transportation, Carlton Center was in fact a
commercial center, with education and religion added on. The general store came
first. Owned-operated by Bill McCally, it sold a variety of goods and foods, and
was an impromptu gathering spot, with a pot-bellied stove in cold months. Dad
"grew up" there and told stories of the place.

It was a blustery cold day. Mrs. Bagley, a stooped old woman came in, a burlap
sack over her shoulder. She purchased a load of groceries and had them "put on
my bill." When she left, trudging to her cottage through the snow, a man said to
Bill McCally, "There goes your money. Why'd you do it?" Said McCally, "I wish I
could depend as much on you. I'll get every cent." And the day a big man drove
Dad, a kid, away from the heating stove. His dad, my grandfather Dill, yanked off
                                         8
his coat, ready to thrash the big guy who backed away to the front door.

School--A one-room, one teacher building across the road from the store,
looking north down a dirt road into hardwood forest country; today Usborne
Road. The school's "kids" were from six up into the twenties, attending only
when farm work permitted, not in planting/harvest seasons. The teacher, always
a robust male, taught the three Rs with determination and discipline - and a wide
leather pants belt. Here Dad met Mother. "The best thing I ever did in my life,
when I asked her if I could walk home with her," he related to me some fifty
years later. That was about 1901; they married in 1904.

There were two Protestant churches. The nearest Catholic was in Hastings. One I
have mentioned, where Dad was pulled to the cross. The second was across from
the store, east. In fact, the road was a T at this point, not a I or a +. Today, the
second church has been taken to Barry County's Charlton Park, an ever reminder
of early days in now no-store, no-school Carlton Center.

Mother? She was born and raised in Michigan's town of Shelby, on her parents'
fruit farm north of Grand Rapids. In 1895 her parents, John Usborne I and
Emily Burden Usborne, purchased and moved to a farm about a mile north-west
from Carlton Center Retired from the farm about 1914, they lived in a house on
the north side of Hastings (still there) where John died in 1919; Emily in 1920 at
the home of her son William/Laura in Grand Rapids. They are buried in
Hastings' Riverside Cemetery; on the same lot as Maty (1948) and Theron (1972),
my mother and father. As indicated before, Dad and Mother met at the Carlton
Center school.

Largely, Dad worked as a painter with his father, and as a day farm hand about
the village. It was probably in the fall of 1900 or 1901 that things changed.
Mother was Dad's girlfriend. He was calling on her at the farm home. He and her
brother William were hand cutting corn in a field by the village, likely as dollar-a-
day hands. As Dad related it to me, "We were fed up." They decided to quit.
They did.

William went to Grand Rapids, eventually to become a career United States Post
Office employee to retirement, living with wife Laura Harrison Usborne at 848
Geneva Avenue; three children blessed their marriage. Dad went to Hastings and
the Grand Rapids Bookcase Company, where he became finishing room
foreman, quitting about 1908 to become a farmer, to retirement in Hastings in
1950; Mother had died in 1948. They had three children.

The Usborne farm was largely a happy farm. The Usbornes were quiet, friendly,
warm, generous people. John and Emily farmed their acres and reaped their
crops. Their children--Bertha, who died at birth in New York state; Theron, the
next oldest, who married and remained in Shelby when they moved to Barry
County; Alexander, Lafayette, William, Mercy and Mary, and John.

Life goes on. Years gave way to years. Came 1904. On October 5, there was a
double wedding at the farm--Mary Usborne and Theron Cain; John Usborne and
Elma Verdie Knowles. The Theron/Mary first home was the cottage beside the
Little Thornapple River in Carlton Center, where I was born; John-Verdie's a
                                  9
                 farm a mile north of Carlton Center, where they lived their entire lives.

                 Lafayette "Lafee" Usborne married Achsa Eisenhood. In his youth, Lafe was
                 known at home as "Deacon," for, like his dad, he had a warm, kind heart, but a
                 seldom smiling face. When his parents left the farm, he and Achsa remained for
                 the balance of their lives. The greatest tragedy of their lives was the death about
                 1917 of their son Tom, a fine young man and student at Hastings High School -
                 poliomyelitis, "polio". I contracted the disease a year later, but largely recovered.

                 Today the John/Elma Verdie Usborne farm north of Carlton Center is occupied
                 by their son John III and his wife Betty, and their son John IV, unmarried.
                 Carlton Center is there, a square at Usborne and Carlton Center Roads on
                 Michigan's Barry County maps. Gone are the Cains and Usbornes of the 1890s,
                 gone with the westward breezes that brush the waters of the Little Thornapple
                 River.

Notes for SILAS GREGORY:
Obituary:Sila's Gregory
Silas Gregory died on Thursday morning, Oct.24, 1929 about seven o'clock after a serious illness of
about one week of pneumonia. Mr. Gregory had been employed for past eight or nine years as
janitor of the Stockport consolidated schools, a duty which he had performed faithfully and well.
For a number of years he was an employee of the Union Telephone Company at Stockport, for
several years was also the proprietor of a barber shop.He had reached the age of seventy last may.
Silas A. Gregory,son of Numidia and Zalinda Gregory, was born in Jefferson county, near
Richland, Iowa May 19,1859 and departed this life Oct. 24, 1929 age 70 years,5months and 5 days.
The family consisted of two brothers, three sisters, three half-sisters and one half brother. He
grew to manhood on the old homestead and from there he attended the church and public school
which were near. Jan. 11, 1880, he was united in marriage with Rosella Stalker, To this union one
daughter was born, Cora B. Gregory. In the fall of 1886, the family went to California in the hope
of finding health for the wife, but this happy home was broken by the loss of the wife and mother ,
March 31, 1887. He returned to Iowa in the fall of 1887, and on Oct.27, 1892 he was united in
marriage with Eva L. Knowles of Stockport, from the Hickory Grove neighborhood. To this union
one son was born Leslie Clyde Gregory. In the spring of 1894 they moved to Stockport where they
have since resided. He was a birthright member of the Friends church, but gave his heart very
definitely to God in early manhood; lived in close fellowship with his Master, a life given to those
who earnestly seek him. He was one of the charter members of the Friends church in Stockport.
To the cause of Christ he gave time, money and service without thought of reward. For the last
eight years he has had charge of the school property of Stockport. He loved his work as in it he
saw an opportunity to help all who were connected with the school to a knowledge of God's love for
mankind. His last moments were spent in song and praise, urging all his family who stood near to

                                                  15
accept Christ as their personal Savior; looking with confidence to his Maker as he stepped across
the bar, he sang,"There Is no night so dark but He is near." He leaves to mourn his passing the
wife, Eva L. Gregory; one daughter, Cora B Forbes of Mt. Pleasant; one son, Leslie Clyde Gregory
of Stockport; also two sisters, Mrs. Rebecca Bartoff of Osborne, Kan. and Mrs. Nina Cornell of
Fairfield; two half-sisters, Mrs. Ethel Dutton of West Liberty, Iowa, Mrs. Corda Morrow of
Packwood, Iowa; and several nieces and nephews, and eleven grandchildren. The church, school
and community feel they have a very dear friend. Life's labors done as sinks the day, Light from
its load the spirit flies, while heaven and earth combine to say, How blest the righteous when he
dies. The Christian church from which the funeral was conducted, was filled to overflowing with
relatives and friends who came to pay last tribute of respect to one they loved so well. The services
were conducted well. The services were conducted by his pastor, Guy Hunting of the Friends
church. The text, Psalm 17:15; " I shall be satisfied when I awake with His likeness." The male
quartet, Roy Beswick, Eugene Workman, Frank Smith and Perry Smith sang beautifully __" The
Touch of His Hand On Mine," " Asleep in Jesus" and " Shall We Meet Beyond the River?" Silas
Gregory was laid to rest in Peace.
