The family moved to Kalamazoo in about 1922 and lived near Western Michigan College (now University) which he attended for about two years. It is here that he met Dorothy Galbreath. While at Western he was a member of their tennis team. He was a tall, handsome man: between 6'2" and 6'3" tall, with blue eyes and wavy hair. He could not afford to finish college but did retain some beautiful architectural pencil sketches from one of his classes, and related several times his frustration in one class at being docked a significant number of points on an essay exam for misspelling a simple word in haste.</p> <p> <table border=1 align=right><tr><td> <img src=../jpeg/2&3wed.jpg height=328 width=199></tr> <tr><td align=center><font size=-2>Dorothy and Truman Gilbert<br> June 30, 1936</tr>

</table> As a wedding present, Dorothy's mother gave them her equity in her small bungalow at 1930 East Cork St., later 2002 East. Cork, in Milwood, a southern suburb of Kalamazoo. The house was on two and one half acres of orchard, half of a five-acre plot that Eva purchased in April, 1925, from the Fischer family. It was in this house that Dorothy's grandmother, Margaret Lydia (Bortle) Tenbroeck died. With the help of college friends, Truman and Dorothy refurbished the house and moved in after their wedding, living there until their first son, Walter, was born. They then bought a house on Egleston St. in Kalamazoo and lived upstairs and rented the downstairs portion. During this time, Dorothy's mother died. They also continued to renovate the house at 1930 Cork St. having the painting done by Harry Marlette in exchange for their cow.</p> <p> In this late depression time, Truman worked as a carpenter, finding work for a while in Alabama and later at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. He was called for service in WW&nbsp;II but failed the physical in Detroit because of a grapefruit-size goiter he had at the time. From the time they moved to 2002 East Cork Street until some time after the second World War, they always had a pen of chickens and at least one cow. Truman built a small barn and chicken coop for the animals and provided most of their care. The cow provided milk and enough butter to have excess which was sold to neighbors. Hand churning several gallons of cream was a task often performed by the children. After the butterfat had coagulated, it was extracted from the buttermilk with cheese cloth and formed into one-pound pats. It was then stored in a large, old, commercial-style chest freezer in the basement. The buttermilk was bottled for drinking. Often the cow was bred for a calf which was used for meat for the family. The chickens provided eggs and were also eaten. Before chicken feeds were supplemented with vitamins and minerals, eggs shells were saved, baked, ground, and mixed with their feed. The baking operation produced a stench usually sufficient to drive the family from the house.</p> <p> During this time, the early 1940s, Truman acquired an exterminating company from ____ Barker. Dorothy had dated the Barker's son, ____, until he died of a floor burn from playing basketball. They remained close and when ____ Barker wanted to retire from his business, he offered it to Truman. Truman renamed it "Gilbert's Exterminating Service" and operated it out of the family home. This entailed storing hundreds of pounds of DDT, canisters of other

poisons, and carboys of sulphuric acid in the workshop building that Truman built about 50 feet behind the house. Fortunately, no accidents ever occurred with these materials except the time when someone who was assisting in the preparation for a fumigation opened a carboy of acid while standing down wind&#151;the vapors ate large holes in his pants. Occasionally, when explaining his father's occupation at "show and tell" in school, one of the children would take a small can of pyrethrin and describe how it was used. Then, with the class thoroughly impressed by the toxicity of the material, he would eat a pinch of it, much to the horror of the teacher and class. It would then be explained that pyrethrin is harmless to humans.</p> <p> After the war, Truman returned to carpentry and built several houses in the Kalamazoo area, including one for his sister, Iva Mohl, and her husband. The shop building was often used to make items for these homes, usually those requiring finer woodworking. This shop was about 20' by 24' and had wide workbenches along the two long walls, except for a break at one end for a garage door. A large radial arm saw was built into the middle of the complete workbench and there was a small door in the walls at the end of the workbench so the very long lumber could be slid in and cut. The shop also had a fine table saw built of oak by Truman's father, Walter, who, with his wife, had lived in a house built between the main house and the shop. Walter also built a wood lathe and many smaller, specialized hand tools. There was also a drill press. The facilities were such that the children had ample opportunity to learn basic woodworking and other skills. Several go-carts were assembled here, and son Walter used it several times for overhauling automobiles. The shop stood until 197_ when it was dismantled during a family reunion, having degenerated significantly from neglect.</p> <p> After having been his own contractor and carpenter for a few years, Truman went to work for the Ray Stevens Construction Company as their field superintendent. In this capacity he supervised the construction of many buildings, schools, churches, etc., in southern Michigan. The company failed in November, 1958, which had a serious physical and psychological effect on Truman. He was unemployed for eight weeks, refusing to apply to the Miller-Davis Construction Company which had forced the Stevens company out of business. However, Miller-Davis eventually offered him a job, which he accepted, because other attempts at finding work had not been fruitful. His annual salary with Stevens had been $11,000, a princely sum at the time, but he was offered only $8,000 by Miller-Davis.

They had no work for him for the first several months and then he was sent to various construction sites out of town where he could return home only infrequently. He died of a heart attack while building a Holiday Inn in Danville, Illinois. He did not appear at work on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and was found dead in bed at his rooming house.</p> <p> His son, Walter, relates the following about the death of his father. <blockquote> For several months before my father's death, I had the same terrifying dream about twice a week. In it I could see him sleeping in a single bed against a wall in an unfamiliar room with the nitroglycerine pills that he took for his heart condition on the nightstand beside the bed. He awakens at night with severe chest pains and reaches for his medication which, due to the darkness and the severity of the pain, he knocks onto the floor. He thinks or says, "Oh dear, damnit!" and dies quickly, being unable to move to retrieve the fallen bottle.</p> <p> Every time I would have this dream, I would awaken completely shaken, and would not be able to return to sleep for some time. After his death, the dream never recurred. </blockquote> Truman enjoyed hunting and was active in Little League Baseball with his sons Eugene and Harry. He also enjoyed occasionally playing the piano and had several pieces he played from memory remarkably well considering that he had probably learned them in his childhood and had not practiced them for many years.</p> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 2A +nm Gilbert, Walter John +sx m +++ SSN: 362-40-3944 +bd 26 Apr 1938 +bp Kalamazoo, Kalamazoo County, Michigan +++ad6700 Cipriano Rd.; Lanham, MD 20706; (301)552-9191 +spouse #2As +child #2AA +child #2AB +spouse Prochazka, Janet Cushing Barnes +bd 23 Mar 1941 +bp Boston, Massachusetts +md 7 Feb 1975 +mp in the Court House, Upper Marlboro, Prince George's County, Maryland +mn same +dv on January 28, 1977, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. +pa Barnes, LaVerne Almon +ma Wight, Eleanor Cushing +spouse Linz, Elizabeth Gertrude

(Don't worry, I'm not going to get maudlin or wildly philosophical here.) I've had a great life. I've certainly reaped the benefits of the collective ambitions and struggles of my many immigrant ancestors and the subsequent defenders of the United States.</p> <p> Each phase of my life&#151;infancy, childhood, education, parenting, career, and retirement&#151;has been happy and successful with just enough grief to make me appreciate the good times. The transitions between them have been seamless and without anxiety.</p> <p> <b>Infancy:</b> I was the first born of a family of five children and benefitted from the attendant attention and status. I even survived the era which required that visitors wear surgical masks to visit the baby.</p> <p> <b>Childhood:</b> We lived in the suburbs of Kalamazoo, Michigan, on 2&frac12; acres of farm land. My father, a construction superintendent, and grandfather, a cabinet maker, built a large workshop behind the house which had every tool and supply a child could imagine. I was taught to use them safely. My mother taught me arithmetic at age three: addition, subtraction, simple multiplication and division. At five I could do long division. I was also taught to cook, type,

and use a sewing machine. We had apple and pear trees to climb, larger trees in which to build houses, and plenty of space to grow things. We had cats and dogs, sometimes a cow and pen of chickens, and whatever wild creatures we would bring home: a crow, an opossum, a raccoon, snakes, frogs, turtles, etc. </p> <p> We had a piano and I was given (an expensive) clarinet in the fifth grade which I played in the school band. Then I took up the baritone horn, then some time on the viola, french horn, double bass, and trombone. My piano lessons in junior high school included a lot of music theory. I wrote and arranged my first piece for band in seventh grade. However, the only failing grade I ever received was in music; I didn't show up for a concert.</p> <p> <table border=1 align=left> <tr><td><img src="../jpeg/2a-hs.jpg" width=141 height=193 alt="Walter John Gilbert, highschool"> <tr><td align=center><font size=-2>Walter John Gilbert<br>High School</tr> </table> <b>Education:</b> In high school I took as much music, science, and mathematics as I could. I did not enjoy history, English, and similar classes; after the first semester, I never took a study hall. My social skills were rudimentary. There was never any doubt that I would go to Western Michigan College (now University) in Kalamazoo. I worked summers for my father in construction or for a housing development mowing unsold lots to pay my tuition and fees; I lived at home.</p> <p> Realizing that the future of a music major was teaching school band at a mediocre salary, I opted for physics and math but spent most of my time in the Music Dept. I was selected as music director of the school studentwritten musical in my junior year, the first time a non-music major or non-senior had been chosen. I wrote most of the music and conducted the orchestra. In my senior year, I wrote the words and music for the school's new fight song and the music for the alma mater; they are still in use. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with all of the available honors in physics.</p> <p>

I met my first wife in the Music Dept.; she was a year ahead of me. My parents already knew her family since her father had been our milkman for years. We were married after I graduated. We moved to Maryland so I could attend graduate school in physics; they had a good graduate assistant program. I chose to bypass the Masters Degree and go directly for the Ph.D. Then our family started. Since this was the era when it was forbidden for a teacher to be pregnant, I got a job a the National Bureau of Standards and continued school part-time. I completed my classes but did not finish my research to complete my Ph.D.</p> <p> My transition to breadwinning was transparent albeit the one and only time I ever had to look for a job. I sent resumés around the Washington, DC, area; the only response I received was from the National Bureau of Standards (now the National Institute of Science and Technology). I was a physicist going to work for a key government science agency. I worked in infrasonics (very low frequency sound). It was interesting and critical to the national defense (detecting underground nuclear testing) so I missed the Viet Nam war experience.</p> <p> Kitty was a delightful baby; all anyone could ask. While she was not planned, John was. He was more of what one expects of a boy baby but, nonetheless, delightful. They were and always have been each other's best friend.</p> <p> <b>Career:</b> During this time, I discovered computers and made a deliberate career change; one of the few major decisions I ever had to make. This was despite a 1968 omen from an experienced coworker that "all useful computer programs have already been written." My first real computer experience was on <i>Pilot</i>, a huge vacuum tube affair. I was totally caught up in the technology and worked long hours. This didn't help our young marriage and we divorced. I then valued the time I had with the children which I had been taking for granted.</p> <p> Even though I was a scientist, I moved into management in the Administrative Computer Center of the University of Maryland. I also married Betty Linz; probably the best thing I have ever done. For seven years I learned how the other half (administrators) lived; it was a good lesson. Then I went to the

academic side of the University where I was head of systems programming (and later, networking). During a 1988 reorganization, I opted to move to the service side; a very smart move for me.</p> <p> Soon I was asked to take a million-dollar grant from AT&T and build "the world's greatest classroom." I did: the AT&T Teaching Theater. But with able coworkers, I realized that success in teaching with technology was helping the early-adopting faculty to succeed, not in the technology itself. Several classrooms and many successful faculty later, I was given an opportunity for early retirement. I took it. Financially, it was a "no-brainer".</p> <p> <b>Retirement:</b> It's great.</p> <p> Betty and I built a cabin about two hours away in West Virginia in 1979. It is the rare month that we have not spent time there. I did all of the electrical work, the plumbing, and even built some of the cabinets; it was satisfying. <a href=http://www.otal.umd.edu/~walt/cabin/ target=_new>Take a tour</a>. When we're not there, we encourage family and friends to use it.</p> <p> <b>Music:</b> I have always maintained my interest in music, both performance and composition. In the Washington, D.C., area there was a great demand for double bass players for theater orchestras, pit bands, etc. I usually played several shows a year; all volunteer. However, my real love was composition. Unfortunately, it is incredibly difficult to have one's music played.</p> <p> I started doing arrangements for some of the shows, mainly the annual Old Time Music Hall at the British Embassy. In 1987 I started playing for an annual satirical show, Hexagon. Soon I was writing and arranging several pieces each year. This has continued. It is a lot of work but it is great to have a my music performed to about 10,000 people.</p> <p> Also, in about 1990, I bought a high-quality electric piano and attached it to my computer. Thus began a new phase of composition. I was frequently limited in composition by my shortcomings as a performer. Now the computer could play

perfectly anything I wrote. I then learned how to specify the loudness and duration of every note of a composition so that the resulting performance would sound as I would play it <i>if</i> I could play it. In effect, I was converting my musical style to a series of numbers (loudness and duration); this realization was one of the most exciting moments of my life.</p> <p> <b>Genealogy:</b> I never liked history and never really thought about who my ancestors were. However, in about 1972, I made several trips to the National Archives to search census films for my mother and her cousin. All of a sudden I was hooked. It was probably seeing the names of some early ancestors in those old records that did it.</p> <p> I immediately started to keep track of the information on the computer, a Univac mainframe. It was a struggle because there was absolutely no appropriate software and keyboard access was clumsy. Once I reached a critical mass of information, I realized that I needed to write some software to format it in a readable way. Design and implementation of this took several years but the result, with a few simple changes, is what now generates my web pages.</p> <p> Odds and ends:<ul> <li>A <a href=http://users.erols.com/bettygilbert/AJuicyStory.htm target=a> Juicy Little Story</a>. <li>What my brother, Harry, did with the above: <a href=http://users.erols.com/bettygilbert/HMGcartoon.htm target=a>Cartoon version</a>.</ul> <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>This is an autobiography</ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 2As +nm Borden, Sandra Jean +sx f +bd 30 Aug 1937 +bp Kalamazoo County, Michigan +md 18 Jun 1960 +mp Portage Methodist Church, Portage, Michigan +dv on February 15, 1972, in Montgomery County, Maryland. +pa Borden, Harry Eugene +ma Wheeler, Violet +tb <a href=../misc-htm/Borden,SandraJeanPedigree.htm target=p>Her pedigree.</a> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 2AA +nm Gilbert, Katherine Ann

During her junior year an opportunity arose for her to be an au pair for a family in Belgium.

He very much enjoyed outdoor activities and participated in many sports, particularly baseball. Despite his outdoor bent, he played the tuba in the junior high school band for several years.</p> <p> After graduating from Kalamazoo Central High School in 1958, Jud applied for admission to Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. A delayed response convinced him that he had not been accepted, so he joined the Air Force. Shortly after his enlistment, his acceptance letter arrived.</p> <p> Jud was sent to Lackland Air Force Base in Texas for basic training. He had the highest aptitude score in his group and was selected for surveillance equipment training in Denver, Colorado. His next assignment took him to Victorville, California, where he did maintenance on F104 fighter radar systems. He kept in close contact with his high school girl friend, Bonny, and returned to marry her in June of 1960. He had been taking instruction and theirs was a full Catholic wedding. Their first child was born in Victorville, where they lived until the Cuban missile crisis of 1962 when they

were sent to Homestead Air Force Base in south Florida. Their second child was born here.</p> <p> Life was not easy for the young couple; this young marriage was a sudden change that neither was prepared for. Bonny, a National Merit Scholar runner-up, had not completed high school and was now having to work as waitress in the base NCO club. They suffered a bitter separation and Bonny took the children to an unknown location outside of Florida. In the interim, Jud married Patricia Stroud who had a daughter, Susan; Bonny married _____ McDowell.</p> <p> In 1966 Jud decided to leave the Air Force. He was very interested in the new and exciting field of computers and talks with his brother, Walt, who was already in the field, cinched the decision. His first civilian job was with Digital Equipment Corporation in Maynard, Massachusetts, as field service engineer. Here he devised and taught an improved method for tuning computer memories.</p> <p> Jud was eager to advance and moved to Orlando, Florida, as the field service supervisor for the State. This move also suited Pat who could not cope with New England winters. Here they raised siamese cats which won several prizes in cat shows. The new job entailed much driving to cover the entire State, often at unusual hours. To lighten his driving burden, Jud bought a Corvette sport car which he kept and maintain for many years. From that time on, he always owned a high-performance car for pleasure driving.</p> <p> In April of 1969, Jud accepted a job doing computer-based research and development for the Psychobiology Research Center of The Florida State University in Tallahassee. He had many notable achievements in this creative environment, both in hardware and software. His concepts were always at the cutting edge of the technology and his results were always much more capable and sophisticated than originally called for. He and Pat were divorced during this time.</p> <p> <table align=left width=258 border=1> <tr><td><img src=../jpeg/Gilbert,Jud&family~1975-256x256.jpg

Several of his developments were patented by the company. He progressed through head of the software design group to the manager of engineering of computer products to the manager of engineering of communications systems. Here he acquired a deep understanding of the importance of marketing and the powerful influence it had on product design and manufacture. During this time Jud was able to locate Bonny and their two children whom he had not seen for many years. After a cautious courtship, he and Bonny remarried.</p> <p> Offered a more attractive position, Jud and the family moved to Newtown, Connecticut, to work for General Data Comm, also a manufacturer of communications equipment. One of Jud's most satisfying accomplishments while at GDC was leading the company softball team to the league championship. The softball autographed by all the members of the team remained one of his most prized possessions.</p> <p> Again finding the New England climate a rude shock, and finding many of the promises of the new position unfulfilled, they soon moved to San Jose, California, for Jud to accept the position of vice president of engineering with Prentis Corporation. He usually worked 12 hours a day, arriving at work at 6:00 a.m. after a 30- to 45-minute drive, and not leaving until evening. He frequently went in on Saturdays and brought work home. Tiring of hardware and engineering, he changed to vice president of marketing. This required him to travel extensively making major presentations and organizing regional sales offices.</p> <p> After some serious conflicts within the company, Jud left and went into business for himself as a communications consultant. He had an incredibly broad knowledge of the field and found his services in great demand. Jud was active in tennis, golf, skiing, and followed many other sports. The back yard

of their house in San Jose was dominated by a swimming pool.</p> <p> Jud and Bonny again separated and were divorced. Bonny moved to North Dakota and married Robert Kent; Jud married Lynn Olsen whom he had met at Prentis. By this time, Tina and Geoff were married and on their own but Lynn had four children and Jud revelled in being a father again. However, as much as he tried to spend more time at home, he was now an entrepreneur, active in several small businesses and always seeking new opportunities. During this time he suffered a myocardial infartion which he either was not aware of or chose not to disclose. It left a 2x4cm scar in the postero-lateral aspect of the left ventricle, as would be discovered later during his autopsy.</p> <p> In mid November of 1985, Jud suffered severe chest pains but kept postponing treatment to follow his busy schedule, including a business trip to Paris to confirm an important business arrangement. He and Lynn attended a computer hardware convention and show in Las Vegas, Nevada, on about November 20th. During this time, his pains were so great that he had to sleep in a seated position. He promised Lynn that despite having no medical insurance, he would see a doctor Monday morning. On Sunday morning, November 24th, they arrived at the airport with ample time to spare before their flight, as was his custom. He was eating a hot dog at a concourse snack bar when he suffered a heart attack. He slumped to the floor and was unable to get up. Prompt paramedic attention was unable to revive him and he was pronounced dead at 12:07 noon in the Desert Springs Hospital emergency room. A complete autopsy was performed and the opinion of the coroner was "that the decedent, Judson Truman Gilbert, came to his death as the result of acute coronary insufficiency, due to coronary artery sclerosis. Contributing conditions: healed myocardial infarct." He was 45 years old.</p> <p> His death was completely unexpected by his family. He had visited his brother, Walt, in Maryland the preceeding month and showed no signs of trouble. On the contrary, he was quite energetic for his 240-pound weight. The eulogy read at his funeral was written by his wife's sister, Ruth Summers. <blockquote>

Judson Gilbert was a friend, a husband, a father, a father to those who never had a father, a grandfather, a son, and an uncle very much loved. He gave his love and knowledge to those around him. His smile was something that could brighten the dreariest days. His patience was to be uncompared.</p> <p> He was a man of intellect and pride. His pride was of his family and his friends more so than himself. He was a man of strength, courage, and understanding.</p> <p> Everything Jud got involved in, he did wholeheartedly. He once said: "I wish God would give me a woman's brain for one hour just so I could figure out how it works." He was interested in everything and everyone around him.</p> <p> Jud Gilbert was loved and respected by all who knew him. He is close to our hearts.</p> <p> We needed him, we depended on him, and we loved him.</p> <p> Thank you, Lord, for the time we had with him. May everyone have a person like Jud in their life. </blockquote></p> <p> The <a href=http://ssdi.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi/ssdi.cgi target=ss>Social Security Death Index</a> gives Jud's SSN as 367-40-6787 and confirms his birth and death dates.

Her name was selected in part because it did not have a ready nickname; her mother wanted her called "Mary Ellen" and she always was. Mary Ellen attended Milwood Elementary School and Junior High School which went through the ninth grade. Her first two years of high school were at Kalamazoo Central High School which her mother and older brothers had attended. Her last year of high school was in the first class to attend and graduate from the new Loy Norrix High School. She was assistant editor of her junior high school year book. Her major areas of high school study were English, history, and mathematics. Although she considered science a difficult subject, her favorite class was seventh- and eighth-grade science, and her concentration on mathematics was with great difficulty because she felt it was expected of her.</p> <p> Mary Ellen was in her second year at Western Michigan University when President Kennedy was assassinated on November 23, 1963. That event had a great

impact on her, causing an immediate reassessment of her goals and ambitions. Her college major was Education but she realized she was not interested in teaching; she did not return to classes.</p> <p> <table border=1 align=left> <tr><td><img src="../jpeg/2c-navy.jpg" width=160 height=236 alt="Mary Ellen Gilbert, Navy Wave"> <tr><td align=center><font size=-2>Mary Ellen Gilbert<br> 1964 Navy Photo</tr> </table> <table border=1 align=right> <tr><td><img src="../jpeg/2c-baby.jpg" width=200 height=236 alt="Mary Ellen Gilbert, Navy Wave"> <tr><td align=center><font size=-2>Mary Ellen Gilbert</tr> </table> In March of 1964, Mary Ellen enlisted the Navy as a Wave. She was sent to Bainbridge, Maryland, for her basic training, about an hour's drive from Rockville where her brother, Walter, lived. She spent most of her two years in the Navy in Bainbridge, graduating at the head of her class in machine accounting. At that time, machine accounting relied on the key punch and data processing cards for data entry, and wired plug-board tabulating machines for processing. Having never had a sister or really close relationship with a brother, Mary Ellen very much enjoyed living with other girls: "There was always someone to do something with." For her Company song, she adopted Western Michigan's fight song, which was written by Walter, and set new words to it. It was very popular with her classmates.</p> <p> Mike Puckett spend most of his youth in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with his adoptive parents. Is it reported that the Puckett side of the family is related to Secretary of State Seward who arranged for the purchase of Alaska from Russia. Mike was an National Merit Scholar finalist. He had a dog named Joe that he found as a puppy in a snow bank while delivering newspapers in about 1955. Joe liked to eat chili peppers from plants in the family's front yard.</p> <p> Mary Ellen met Mike on December 12, 1964, at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds NCO (Non-Commissioned Officer) Club. They were married six weeks later. She made her street length, white satin wedding dress. The day of the wedding was so cold that her mother, and brothers, Walter and Harry, and

Walter's wife, Sandra, had difficulty driving from Rockville to Bainbridge because Walter's Volkswagen had no heat and the windows had to be scraped constantly to remove the frost. A few months after they were married, Mike was sent to Massachusetts for six months. She would take the Greyhound bus every weekend to visit him, sometimes standing most of the way to New York City in the crowd of other service men and women on weekend passes. Then he was transferred to Charleston, South Carolina, where he was a nuclear submarine mechanic alternating three months at sea and three months on shore. She was permitted to join him there since, even as head of her class, she had not been given her choice of duty station after graduation. She soon became pregnant with Sean which immediately terminated her naval career, not against her wishes.</p> <p> After about two and one half years in Charleston, Mike was sent to Connecticut as an instructor in a nuclear submarine training facility. They lived in Southwick, Massachusetts, and had a St. Bernard dog with an appetite for socks; this was discovered when it died with one as an intestinal obstruction. Mary Ellen took a job in Springfield as an insurance claims reviewer for The Travelers Insurance Company for $75 a week. After a year, she changed to the St. Paul Insurance Company in Springfield where she started at $400 per month as a rater in the (business) package department. They lived in Southwick for about two years, then Mike left the Navy and they moved to Westfield, Massachusetts, where he completed a college degree using the GI Bill. They bought a duplex house and rented the upper half to cover mortgage payments. Mike went to work for Bechtel Power Corporation which specialized in building nuclear power stations. In mid-winter, the family, Mike, Mary Ellen, and Sean, moved to nearby Montgomery, Massachusetts, where they lived for a year. Their house was a raised ranch-style on an acre of partially wooded land on a small mountain top. This was Mary Ellen's favorite house. The presence of many wild birds&#151;grosbeaks, huthatches, and many unknown species&#151;began her interest in bird watching. During this time, Mary Ellen

was still working for St. Paul Insurance. After accepting a job in Florida, Mike sold the two family cars and bought a Corvette, a two-seat sports car, which made further travel by the family of three quite difficult. They moved to Homestead, Florida, so that Mike could take a job as a health physicist at the Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant. Mary Ellen had advanced to a full underwriter by this time and was making $12,000 annually. Finding that Homestead top salaries were $7,000 in her field, she enjoyed a few years as a housewife and mother.</p> <p> In February of 1979, when it became clear their marriage probably would not last, Mary Ellen took a part-time job with the T. R. Jones Insurance Agency in Homestead. Mike moved to Atlanta, Georgia, to work for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Their divorce became final on December 12, 1979, exactly 15 years from the day they met.</p> <p> About this time Sean was becoming interested in the new microcomputer field. Unable to afford one, he spent hours at a local Radio Shack store programming one of their TRS-80 models. When his mother's 35mm camera outfit was stolen, she used the $400 insurance claim to buy him an Atari system. Soon his interest became a consuming passion, even interfering with high school. Having considerable talent for programming, Sean was soon earning money at it. Several of his ingenious games were featured in national magazines and other publications.</p> <p> Mary Ellen began working full time for the Jones Agency as an underwriter at $600 per month, far from her Massachusetts salary. She supplemented this by accepting the contract to clean the offices in the evening. In 1981, a lump under her left arm was diagnosed as cancerous and was removed along with many of the surrounding lymph nodes, which proved to be cancer-free. Another breast cancer was discovered in the same area 18 months later. It was also removed and followed up with daily radiation therapy. At this time, 1983, Mary Ellen had to give up her cleaning job, but continued as a full-time underwriter. In spring, 1986, a cancerous lump was found in her left breast

and a radical mastectomy was performed. Later that year, it was discovered that breast cancer had metastisized to the liver. It also spread to her bones and she steadily deteriorated until she died at home with her family present. </p> <p> Mary Ellen was always a rapid and voracious reader. She also loved animals and nature. She frequently visited the Miami Zoo and Everglades National Park. She almost always had a pet dog or cat and was very concerned about wild and stray animals. Like her mother and her mother's mother, she enjoyed playing a wide variety of games. She was highly regarded by her company and was selected to receive the first "Employee of the Year" award in 1987. This included a cash award to be used for travel anywhere east of the Mississippi River. She spent the time in Maryland with her family.</p> <p> The <a href=http://ssdi.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi/ssdi.cgi target=ss>Social Security Death Index</a> gives Mary Ellen's SSN as 374-48-4723, confirms her birth and death dates, and gives her last residence as Homestead.

He was always active in sports and played in Little League Baseball for several years with his brother, Harry. His father was also active and coached one of the teams. Gene held the family record for largest number of broken bones and other injuries, including osteomyelitis which developed after being hit in the arm with a baseball. It was a family joke that the hospital nurses knew Gene on sight. In 1963, he moved to

Florida to live with his brother, Jud, and to attend high school.</p> <p> Finding the schools behind those he had left in Michigan, he quit and joined the Army on December 16, 1963. He took basic training and advanced infantry at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. He was then accepted into the Honor Guard and sent to the 1<sup>st</sup> Battalion, 3<sup>rd</sup> Reinforced Infantry at Ft. Myer, Virginia. While undergoing the rigorous training for the drill team, it was discovered that he had a slight limp, the result of being spiked in the leg during a baseball game.</p> <p> Gene then became a cook. After a year in the mess hall, he was assigned to cook for Lt. General Dick, and lived in his quarters. Gene met Rita during this time, on December 18, 1965, at a party. On April 20, 1966, he was riding his motorcycle when a car suddenly turned left in front of him from the oncoming traffic; he hit the car and went through the windshield into the front seat. As in several past injuries, he owed his life to modern medicine. He spent several months in the hospital in traction and did not have the steel pin removed from his leg for a year and a half. During this time, while still on convalescent leave, Gene and Rita were married. Like Jud, Gene had taken Catholic instruction and theirs was a Catholic marriage. Gene left the Army on November 20, 1967, and went to work as an engineering assistant for MelPar Inc. in Falls Church, Virginia.</p> <p> In August, 1969, the family moved to Cooper, Michigan, just north of Kalamazoo. Gene first worked for the Allied Paper Company as a production scheduler. To advance in the company, he finished high school, but the mill was soon closed. He worked at odd jobs until he went to Virginia in May of 1972 to seek work as a carpenter. While at Ft. Myer, Gene and Rita had bought two lots in a development called Lake of the Woods in Virginia. He found work in this area as a carpenter for B and B Builders. Rita and the children stayed in Cooper and Gene lived in a tent. He was caught in a hurricane which destroyed his car and tent. He sought refuge in a model home with eight other

men. He went to work for the developer of the home, American Timber, on July 4, 1972.</p> <p> After buying a used car, Gene was able to return to Michigan to visit his family. On the return trip to Virginia, he had two flat tires near Ann Arbor, Michigan. Tired and frustrated, he returned to Cooper, gathered up Rita and the children, and drove to Ocean Pines, near Ocean City, Maryland. There they camped on a lot owned by his brother, Walt's, exwife, Sandra. After much looking, they bought a house in Selbyville, Delaware. Gene worked building houses in Ocean Pines and Ocean City. This was a time of high unemployment but he was able to acquire a contract to build an office for a USDA poultry inspector. Next he worked for H and H Poultry in building and equipment maintenance. He left this job in August, 1975, as a maintenance supervisor and returned to Michigan where he found work in building and equipment maintenance for the Charles River Breeding Laboratories in Portage.</p> <p> Rita and the children joined him in Michigan in February, 1976. They bought a house in Portage within walking distance of his mother's apartment. On December 19, 1977, Gene was transferred to the company's headquarters in Wilmington, Massachusetts. They bought a house in Plaistow, New Hampshire, where they lived for the longest continuous period in their lives together. On November 9, 1981, Gene left Charles River and went to work for Kellogg American as a maintenance supervisor and facilities supervisor. Three years later, he changed to Photo Fabrication Technologies.</p> <p> Gene continues to enjoy baseball, playing in the New England semi-pro league for the Haverhill AmVets as pitcher, first base, and third base. Gene and Rita enjoy the distinction of being the only family among his brothers and sister not to suffer a divorce. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Personal interviews and knowledge</ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 2DA +nm Gilbert, Colleen Marie +sx f +bd 2 Nov 1967 +bp Accotink, Virginia +md

When labor began, Eva simply went up to her bedroom and called down to her mother to bring up some hot water. A doctor was summoned after the birth and he recorded the event at the court house, giving the name of "Bertha Galbreath". Her name as recorded in the family Bible was Dorothy Allene Galbreath, and the name she always used was Dorothy Aileen. The court house records were changed to Dorothy Ailene Galbreath in 1963 when the discrepancy was discovered.</p> <p> Dorothy lived on the Dye farm for her first several years. She remembers typical farm scenes: the great rows of corn, the fruit trees, the pigs and piglets, and the large watering trough for horses in front of the house. The Dye house is eight miles north of South Haven and was still there in 1982.</p> <p> The family left the Dye farm where they were share croppers and moved to the <i>octagon</i> house nearer South Haven. Dorothy remembers climbing up the dark, carpeted stairs to the attic, with all of its old house smells and shadows so frightening to a young girl. Here she would look out the windows on the eight sides of the cupola.</p> <p> From there, the family moved to the <i>big</i> house on Phoenix road. This was a large, elegant, red house with a windbreak of stately evergreen trees with their soft cushion of needles underneath. There was trumpet vine on the side of the house that attracted hummingbirds in the summer. There Dorothy had a pet hen named Biddy who followed her around whenever she was outdoors. She also had a pet pig. It was a runt and had been raised in the house until strong enough to join its littermates.</p> <p> This house had a smaller tenant house down the lane and Dorothy's Uncle Roy and his family lived there. The house also had a smoke house made out of the

stump of a huge, grey tree. This is where the hams were cured.</p> <p> The big house had a large parlor. One Christmas the family blocked the door with large sacks of beans, one of that year's crops, so that Dorothy could not get in. On Christmas eve, sleigh bells were clandestinely rung outdoors, the sacks of beans were removed, and the doors opened to reveal a fully decorated Christmas tree, which everyone assured young Dorothy had been left by Santa Claus.</p> <p> The family moved to Jericho, half way between South Haven and Bangor. It is here that Dorothy started school. The soil there was very sandy, and down a lane behind the house was a brook with a sandy bottom and a beechnut tree leaning over it. When the nuts were ripe, Dorothy would crack them open and pick out the meats with the patience only available to children. Sandburs abounded in the area, and since she often went barefoot, there were many places she could not visit. Once she found herself trapped in the middle of a sandbur patch and had to be rescued by her grandfather, Benjamin Franklin Youngblood.</p> <p> <table border=1 align=left><tr><td align=center> <img src="../jpeg/3-fav-pic-42.jpg" width=90 height=146 alt="Dorothy Gilbert"> </td></tr> <tr><td align=center><font size=-2>Dorothy G. Gilbert <br>1956 &#151; age 42<br>Her favorite picture</tr> </table> Dorothy started school at Jericho School, a small building of tan brick. It was a one-room school house with the same teacher teaching all classes. Dorothy was very good at spelling and was looking forward to showing off in front of the class but there was never a spelling time. When she finally asked the teacher why there was no spelling, she was told that spelling was held after the afternoon recess. Until that time, she had always assumed that afternoon recess was the end of the school day and had gone home. After that, she stayed for spelling. The teacher would work with each class in turn, giving commands such as "Seventh grade, turn, stand, pass" to which the seventh grade students would turn in their seats, stand, and on the command "pass", would march to the front of the room to the recitation bench. The fact that one group was in the front reciting never seemed to distract the others who were in their seats studying.</p> <p> At Christmas, names would be drawn, and the entire community would gather for a party with a Santa Claus that would call out each person's name and deliver presents.</p>

1910 thru 1916. Records are available from 1832.</p> <p> George left South Haven and sought work in Buffalo, New York. His first job was as a piano tuner for the Wood and Brooks Piano Company. He soon met and married May. He apparently never told anyone of his first child back in South Haven. May's father was a lawyer and quite a wealthy land owner. During the First World War, George worked for the Curtis Company; after the war he worked as an automobile mechanic. He was always very adept at fixing things and for a time owned and operated George's Fixit. Next, he bought a garage and did auto repairs but lost this during The Depression. At the same time, May's father lost most of his real estate fortune. George worked for the WPA then the Kaiser Burnett Coal Company. After the Second World War, he worked at the Library Garage with his son, Edwin. He retired at about age 62 from the Simon Brewery.</p> <p> George loved family gatherings when all of his children would come to visit. He would sit by the window anxiously awaiting the arrival of the last one, then would sit in his chair and read, apparently oblivious to everyone around him. He loved to eat as evidenced by his size and weight. He also enjoyed taking pictures. He was very meticulous and would often spend 15 minutes adjusting his camera while his subject waited impatiently. According to his daughter-in-law, Dorothy, he was "one of the nicest father-in-laws I could ever ask for." With May, he enjoyed birds and animals. She always had a pet cat.

When she moved to Grand Rapids and lived with her brother, Jesse, she obtained a job at a hospital, perhaps on the housekeeping staff as she had no nursing training. Later she got a job nearer home working at Hales Department Store in South Haven where she soon became buyer for the china department. This was a stable position by means of which she could support herself nicely including buying a cottage on the beach at Lake Michigan and later an Overland touring car.</p> <p> Eva, like her brothers, had not had an opportunity to attend high school. However, she was determined that her young sister would have an education. In 1913 she had Emma come to South Haven and live with her in furnished rooms while she worked for Hales and Emma went to high school. One evening they both attended a party given by a Hales employee; George Galbreath was one of the young men also present. He was strongly attracted to Eva even though his age of 19 would seem to make him a more suitable partner for 17-year-old Emma than for Eva at 31. Eva acquired the cottage about this time. George could call on her and Emma there; respectable young women could not receive male visitors in furnished rooms.</p> <p> On July 4<sup>th</sup>, 1913, Emma went on a holiday outing with friends. When she returned to the cottage in the evening, Eva was not there. She came in with George the next day and told Emma that they had taken a train the previous day and were married. Two months later Emma married Eugene Duffy and dropped out of high school. For reasons that are not clear, Eva moved back home with her parents, possibly renting out her cottage. It is also not clear whether George lived with her at the farm or was there only part of the time. According to his sister, Ethel, George was an expert stringer at the Everett

Piano company. When George left for Buffalo, it was understood that he would send for Eva when he was settled. Family legend has it that when he got in touch with Eva he was told that a baby was expected and he said in effect, "it is all right if you come, but no baby." The outcome was that George never came back and Eva never went to New York. There is some suggestion that Eva obtained a divorce on the grounds of desertion in 1921. Since no records have yet been located, much of this hearsay account remains unsubstantiated.</p> <p> Dorothy was born at the Dye farm where Eva lived with her parents. Eva continued to work for Hales and kept her cottage for several years. In 1920 Eva and her parents and daughter moved east from South Haven to 68th Street, half way to Bangor, in the Jericho school district where Dorothy started in the third grade at the age of seven.</p> <p> In 1924 the family of four moved to Kalamazoo where Eva had found work in the trimmings department of the J. R. Jones department store. At first, they all lived with her brother, Harry, and his new wife, Frances, on South Westnedge Avenue. Then Harry and Eva jointly bought "the Fisher Place" on Cork Street in Milwood. Eva worked at Jones's, Harry worked at the bakery, Frances worked in a paper mill, Frank farmed, took care of the cow and chickens, Maggie and the other women shared the household chores. Eva's parents had the downstairs bedroom, Eva and Dorothy shared the bedroom at the top of the stairs, Harry and Frances had the west bedroom.</p> <p> All lived together until Frances and Harry started a family. The five acres was then divided into two 2.5-acre parcels and Eva built a bungalow in the orchard at a cost of less than $1000. She moved into it with her parents and daughter.</p> <p> Eva, now in her forties, had no lack of suitors. She was an intelligent, thoughtful woman and favorite with her family. She liked playing cards and other games; when a new game came on the market, she would buy it and play it with anyone who was interested. She grew flowers, did various crafts, cooked,

sewed, and enjoyed children. Since she was unable to get her little sister to finish high school, she was doubtless glad to have a daughter who graduated from college, although not as a teacher as she had hoped.</p> <p> In 1928 Eva married Fred Snook, a garage mechanic, and moved with her parents and daughter into 1234 East Cork Street with the Snooks: Fred, his daughter, Lillian, and his son, Ralph. Fred and Eva are remembered for the Boston terriers they raised and sold.</p> <p> This was not a happy move for the Youngbloods. "Grandpa Youngblood" was no longer the man of the house, there was nothing for him to do. He died in 1930. Dorothy graduated from high school in June of 1931 and entered college in September. This was the time of The Depression, and Eva, now working in the fabrics department of the prestigious Gilmore's Department Store, was the only wage-earner for the family. Dorothy temporarily dropped out of school and got a WPA job as a nursery school dietician. Fred was unemployed but was able to get a good deal of auto repair work in his own garage behind the house. As soon as she was able, Eva resumed paying Dorothy's college tuition, even through her marriage in June of 1936; Dorothy graduated in 1937. Eva gave Dorothy and Truman her equity in the bungalow as a wedding present.</p> <p> In the meantime, Maggie Youngblood's eyesight deteriorated until she could not even see well enough to do the dishes. Since Eva and Fred were both working, and Dorothy was married and living in the "little house", it was necessary to hire a companion to stay with Maggie during the day. This was unsatisfactory, and finally "Grandma" went to live with Dorothy and her husband and baby. She lived long enough to hold her great grandson, Walter, in the rocking chair; Walter was five months old when she died.</p> <p> Eva had developed an interest in china because of her work at Hales department store. She had purchased several items that appealed to her, some for herself some for gifts. She had just started to collect pitchers when she left the Hales store.</p> <p> After Dorothy married, Eva and Fred were finally living by themselves.

They bought a new Ford and took a trip to the Mount Rushmore Memorial in South Dakota. This was a very memorable occasion for them and they enjoyed showing their pictures and relating their experiences.</p> <p> Eva and Fred spent many happy hours, days, weeks, fishing and camping. They rented lake cottages every summer, finally bought their own cottage at Pine Lake and had their own motor boats. There were usually many friends and neighbors sharing the fun; Dorothy was always glad to go fishing with them.</p> <p> For years, Eva suffered from varicose veins, a condition that plagued many members of the Youngblood family. It was aggravated by her job as a salesperson requiring her to be on her feet all day. A varicose ulcer developed in her ankle. Conservative treatments failed, so it was finally necessary to have a ligation of the saphenous veins at the groin. Eva ultimately died in Bronson Hospital from thrombophlebitis just over a year after the death of her mother.</p> <p> Fred always liked sharing his interests: show the children how it works and then let them do it. He seemed to enjoy letting his stepdaughter drive his new car and use his new motorboat. He was patient showing her how to shoot his guns and how to use his fishing tackle. Fred went on to outlive a third wife and marry a fourth one, living into his 80s. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Dorothy Galbreath Gilbert <li>Edward Galbreath <li>Eugene Galbreath <li>Family interviews and family Bible records <li><a href=http://ssdi.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi/ssdi.cgi target=_ss>Social Security Death Records</a></ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 6t +nm Thayer, Mary Ora +sx f +bd 15 Jul 1892 +bp +tb She was called May. +md 29 Jan 1916 +mp Buffalo, New York +dd 28 Sep 1973 +dp Depew, New York +spouse #6

He didn't smoke, either.</p> <p> He taught me many things, like how to play chess, and how to figure cryptograms. He loved those and crossword puzzles. He was like the <i>king</i> of crossword puzzles.</p> <p> All my life he was disabled. We had been in a car accident a long while ago and his leg got messed up, so he couldn't work. He became a bit lazy, but he had worked very hard up to about age 45 so from then on he kind of deserved being lazy. Up 'til we got into the accident he worked at Rich Products in Buffalo. So when we moved out to Arizona, he didn't do much. He got Social Security and disablity payments.</p> <p> He volunteered a lot for about 6 or 7 years at old age homes and stuff.

disbanded group of people who helped seniors get around.</p> <p> I don't know what he would liked to be remembered for, but probabaly his smarts.

He was a kind hearted man deep down, although to know him, it wouldn't seem like that most of the time.</p> <p> About my Grandma, I knew her a bit before she died, by that I mean I was alive about 5 years before but really don't remember much. I think I may have a pic of me on her lap at Christmas. She died, I think, on Dec 4th and that we sprinkled her ashes up on Fremont's Saddle here (a mountain range [N 33° 24' 56.8", W 111° 21' 52.8"]). After Uncle Paul died, he went up there too, I hiked his ashes up. And then I did the same with my dad's. All three of their ashes are in the same place. </blockquote> +++ George & Donna alive in 1999 <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Edwin and Dorothy Galbreath <li>Colene Amy Guzowski <li>Christopher Lee Nealon, March & June, 2002</ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 6BBs +nm Buddemeyer, Donna +sx f +bd 23 Mar 1943 +bp Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. +spouse #6BB +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 6BBt +nm Krahling-Laudico, Rita Marie +sx f +bd 14 May 1956 +md 1 Mar 1975 +mp Buffalo, New York, U.S.A. +pa Laudico, Vincent +ma Wood, Nellie +spouse #6BB +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 6BBA +nm Nealon, Hayley Dawn +sx f +bd 19 May 1965 +bp Buffalo, New York, U.S.A.

We were encamped there on the 6th of July and in a few days 100 or more of us took the camp diarrhea some claiming the cause to be a change of climate, others the water but the most probable was the use of a kind of light breads that was drawn as rations which was said to have been raised by a process in which soap was used."

The name comes from the county seat of Lord Clive, an English General who has been called the founder of the British Empire in India. In February, 1767, settlement of the town began in earnest. By 1775 the population was 523 with fewer than 100 families.</p> <p> Per <i>History of Claremont New Hampshire 1764&#150;1894</i>, Benedict was very involved in town meetings and surveying projects.

They stopped using the cemetery in 1771. Up until 1806 Meriden was part of Wallingford, so for the vital records you would have to write to the Wallingford town clerk.

Egle, a noted Pennsylvania historian, wrote <i>Pennsylvania Genealogies</i> which included much information on early Galbraith families. Unfortunately, he did not have all of the information that has been found by subsequent researchers, and became confused by the multiple Jameses and Roberts. Many other writers have taken his information (and mistakes), including the authors of <i>The Descendants of John and Elizabeth Aikman Galbreath</i> which this author relied on for some time.</p> <p> On page 14 of section 3 of <i>The Galbraith Families of Donegal Township...</i> begins a detailed analysis of the lineage of the several Roberts and Jameses from the original John of Ireland.

He fought in the American Revolution and is listed in the Second Battalion of these Northampton County Associators in <i>Rosters from the Pennsylvania Archives</i>. Within this Second Battalion, Samuel is listed as a private in the Second Company, commanded by Captain Henry Hagenbuch. He enlisted on July 9, 1776. Pension applications of other members of this company indicate that they fought in the battle of Brooklyn (often called Long Island).</p> <p> Samuel was last reported alive on August 6, 1776, in South Amboy and died well before May 11, 1777, when his letters of administration were filed with the Northanpton County Register of Wills, Estate #721. From the inventory of Samuel's estate, we can conclude that:<ol> <li>Either Samuel or Juliana could read: there was a Bible and hymnal <li>They wove linen: there was flax seed, both uncombed and combed flax, a flax comb, spinning wheel, and weaver's tools <li>He rode a horse, raised cows, plowed with oxen, and raised pigs for slaughter <li>The family probably lived a basic existence: there were no china or pewter items</ol></p> <p> There is no mention of the fate of Samuel's young wife, Juliana, except that she paid debts from the estate to 14 people including <pix Wirt, Nicholas>, <pix Wirt, Christian>, <pix Wirt, Jacob>, and <pix Wirt, Ulrich>. (Note that Samuel had brothers named Johan Jacob, Christian, and Johan Nicholas; and his father was Johan Ulrich.) Juliana was clearly not able to care for her young family because records of the Northampton County Orphans' Court on June 17, 1778, show that <pix Pobst, Michael> and <pix Ebert, John> were appointed guardians of their four children.</p>

<p> Finally, on June 24, 1790, court file #173, folder #9876, Samuel Wert, Weisburg Township, page 221, the court decides that Samuel's land (170 acres more or less) cannot be divided between the four children without destroying its value; therefore, it is valued at &pound;145 and given to Peter, the eldest child, with the stipulation that he pay off his siblings for their shares in the next year. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li><i>Rosters from the Pennsylvania Archives</i>, Series 5, vol 8, pp. 12&#150;13 <li><i>ibid.</i>, Series 5, vol 8, pp 99&#150;100 and 531&#150;534, includes: "Muster Roll in the Second Battalion of Associtors [sic] in the County of Northampton, and Province of Pennsylvania, which is to compose part of the Flying Camp of Ten Thousand Men, Commanded by Col.

Three months later, on November 25, the people of Hatfield voted to build a suitable house for their new minister and to maintain his salary at &pound;60 per year, "two thirds to be paid in good merchantable wheat, and one third in pork," with the condition that "if our crops fall so short that we cannot pay in kind, then we are to pay in the next best we have."

On board were about 20 families, nearly all from Yorkshire, under the leadership of Rev. Rogers of Rowley, England, near Hull.

Rev. Rogers appeared before Mr. Wilson’s church of Boston in 1638 and requested for himself, and his people, to join with Mr. Wilson’s church. His request was granted. Rev. Rogers was urged to join a company, being formed to colonize Quinnipiack, now New Haven, Connecticut, but chose not to go. Before the winter was over, Ezekiel Rogers requested of the General Court a tract of land between Ipswich and Newbury. His request was granted and the settlement began in the spring of

1639.</p> <p> Hugh Chaplin became a Freeman in 1642, and most of the others soon followed. (Previous to 1664 a Freeman meant that they were members of some Congregational Church, had taken the Freeman’s oath, and were entitled to vote.)</p> <p> The Rowley Company purchased additional land for about &pound;800. Those who were able contributed the purchase money, and in the layout of the house lots, the amount given determined the size of the lot granted. Hugh Chaplin received the following, "To Hugh Chaplin, one lotte containginge an acre, and halfe, bounded on the south side by John Dresser’s house lott, part of it lyinge on the west side, and part of it on the ease side of the street."</p> <p> Although the first mention of the new plantation was in March of 1638, it was not incorporated until September of 1639.</p> <p> Hugh Chaplin was a respected citizen of Rowley, served the term of 1648 as juror; served on the trial jury and was Overseer January 3, 1650, and again December 19, 1641. Hugh had four boys, all born in Rowley. Three of his sons were minors at the time of his death. The lots that were Hugh’s in later divisions, were given to his heir and only living son, Joseph, in his father’s right. Hugh Chaplin only lived fifteen years after settling in Rowley; he made his will a week before his death.</p> <p> The will was not signed, but it was witnessed by Joseph Jewett and John Pickard, who proved the will in Ipswich Court, March 31, 1657. The will had not been proven by the widow within the 20 months allowed for the action, so she was sentenced to forfeit &pound;100 to the court. On April 6, 1657, Elizabeth Jackson petitioned the court for an abatement of the fine for neglecting to present her former husband Hugh Chaplin's will to be probated and on September 29, 1657, the count moderated the fine of Nicholas Jackson for not proving the will of his wife's former husband. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Schreiber, Joan "JC", A <a href=http://www.jcsisle.com/chaplin.html target=jc>website</a> containing research done by her great aunt, Bernice Choate Chaplin, unpublished and (currently: Aug. 2002) without references.</ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++

As the years went on, Humphrey Atherton became more and more a prominent in the town and the colony, ... <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; In 1644 there were "wardens" appointed to take care of and manage the affairs

of the first public school in Dorcheser. Blake in his Annals says that "they were to see that both the master and the scholar performed their duty, and to judge of, and end, any difference that might arise, between master and scholar, or their Parents, according to sundry rules and directions there set down." Humphrey Atherton was one of the first wardens, who were chosen for life. Thus was inaugurated the public school, which had no precedent in America. <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; In 1645, &pound;250 was raised to build a new meeting house, to replace the earlier one (which was a rude building, thatched with straw, with a stairway on the outside), and Humphrey Atherton was one of those chosen to attend to this matter. <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; He had decided taste for military affairs, organized the first training band in Dorchester in 1664, was early a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company, was its captain 1650 to 1658, commanded the Suffolk regiment with title of major general, was chief military officer in New England, many years Selectman and Town Treasurer, deputy to General Courts 1638&#150;1641, in 1659 was Speaker, and had great experience and skill in treatment of the Indians. <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; Capt. Johnson in his "Wonder-working Providence" speaks of Humphrey Atherton as a "lively courageous man," and says:&#151; "Altho he be slow of speech, yet he is down right for the business, one of cheerful spirit, and entire for the country." <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; In 1645 the commissioners of the United Colonies appointed a council of war, placed <ix Standish, Miles> Capt. Miles Standish at its head, with Humphrey Atherton as one of his colleagues. He is said to have been "a man of courage and presence of mind," for when he was sent with 20 men to Pessacus, an Indian sachem [chief] to demand the arrears to the colony of 300 fathom of wampum, Pessacus put him off for some time with dilatory answers, not suffering him even to come into his presence. Atherton finally led his men to the door of the wigwam, entered himself with pistol in hand, leaving his men without, and, seizing Pessacus by the hair of his head, drew him forth from the midst of a great number of his attendants, threatening,

if any of them interfered, that he would despatch them. Pessacus paid waht was demanded, and the English returned in safety. <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; Gen. Humphrey Atherton had a grant of 500 acres at Nonotucke, beyond Springfield, Mary 26, 1658 &#151; given to him by the General Court in recognition of his public service, Nonotucke being the Indian name for the region about Hadley and Hatfield. This grant interfered with other grants previously made, and so, in Nov. 1659, the Court granted an additional 200 acres (700 in all) which were relocated at Waranoke, now Westfield. The estate of Gen. Humphrey Atherton after his death, included in the inventory a "Farme of seven hundred acres at Waronoco." <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; The death of Major General Humphrey Atherton, by accident, in 1661, deprived the colony of one of its principal men. <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; "While returning home in the dark after reviewing his troops on Boston Common his horse was struck by a stray cow. In the collision he was thrown and killed. Sept. 16, 1661." <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; Epitaph on his tombstone at Dorchester: <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Here lyes our Captaine, & Major of Suffolk was withall; <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A Godly Magistrate was he, and Major Generall, <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Two troops of Hors with him heare came, such worth his love did crave; <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Ten companyes of Foot, also mourning, marcht to his grave. <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Let all that Read be sure to keep the Faith as he as don, <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; With Christ he lives now Crowned, his name was Humpry Atherton. </font></p></td></tr></table></center></p> <p> Humphrey Atherton was admitted as a freeman at Dorchester on May 2, 1638.

He probably died before his sons emigrated to America, believed to be the first Galbraiths to do so. The introduction to the above manuscript includes the following. <blockquote> From the note of the genealogist McKee we have the following: "James, on his accession to the throne, offered allotments to the Scots and persuaded the better class to emigrate, but Charles&nbsp;I succeeded to the throne and by all sorts of persecutions, fines, and confiscations, broke down their property. Rents on land were raised, reducing people to poverty. Rents raised further under Charles&nbsp;II and James&nbsp;II."</p> <p> The Scots began emigrating to Northern Ireland and thence to America. By 1729 it is estimated that 6000 had come, among them John and James Galbreath (Galbraith). John stayed in Philadelphia, James pushed out into Conestoga, afterward called Donegal. One record shows arrivals as "James Galbraith 52, wife Rebecca, eldest son John 28, wife Janet 25, son Robert 3, son Andrew 26". </blockquote> <p> From <i>CGANA</i> sec. IV, p. 5, comes

"In <i>History of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania</i>, Donegal Township, p. 757, is written "Among the pioneer settlers when Lancaster County was formed in 1729 were the following, <i>viz</i>: James Galbraith, 1718, John Galbraith, 1718, Andrew Galbraith, 1718, and Robert Galbraith, son of John, 1718."</p> <p> It is interesting to note the naming convention that was prevalent in Scotland in these times. The eldest son was named for his father's father, the second son was named for his mother's father, the third son for his father, and the forth for his father's eldest brother (which, under these conventions, would be the same as the father's father's father). Likewise, the eldest daughter was named for her mother's mother, etc. Looking thru these families shows a frequent adherence to this convention. Perhaps the times where there is a variation indicates that a child died very young. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>The Clan Galbreath Association of North America [<i>CGANA</i>], <i>The Galbraith Families of Donegal Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania; Collection of Works</i> <li>Moran, Clara Galbreath Royse; Flower, Mrs. C.

She always used January 31, 1876. It was recorded on May 4, 1877.</p> <p> Their marriage was recorded on page 15 of Liber 13 of Record of Marriage, Kent County, Michigan: Certificate of Marriage of <i>Walter J. Gilbert</i> and <i>Rose Judson</i> on <i>February 14, 1901</i> at <i>Byron Center, Kent County, Michigan</i>. Both are <i>white</i> and give their residence and place of birth as <i>Byron Twp., Kent County</i>; neither was married previously. His age at last birthday was <i>29</i>, hers was <i>26</i>. His occupation was <i>Farmer</i>. The witnesses were <i>Homer Judson and Gertie Van Splinter</i>; the clergy was H.O. Chamberlin[sic]. Through good fortune, their wedding date falls between

her conflicting birthdays (January 31 and February 28). However, her given age of 26 is inconsistent with either date. If she was born in January, she already would be 25 on February 4; if she was born on February 28, she would be only 24.</p> <p> The earliest information on Walter Gilbert's childhood is that he played the clarinet in school but had to give it up because "the notes just went by too fast." Although the Gilbert family had been farmers for many generations, he shunned that pursuit and became a rural parcel post carrier, making his deliveries on horseback.</p> <p> <table border=1 align=left><tr><td> <img src="../jpeg/4wg&5rg.jpg" width=300 height=371></tr> <tr><td align=center><font size=-2> Rose and Walter Gilbert &#151; ca. 1950</tr> </table> The marriage of Walter and Rose united two families that had been following in each other's footsteps for generations. The Judsons and the Gilberts had both come originally from Connecticut to the Connecticut Western Reserve, Northwestern Ohio, in the very early 1800s and were some of the original settlers of Portage County. Then, after about a generation, both families moved to Michigan, the Gilberts with a brief stay in Williams County, Ohio, then on to northwestern Barry County, and the Judsons some of the very first settlers of Byron Township, Kent County. They did not make these moves together and there is no evidence that the families even knew each other prior to the union of Rose and Walter.</p> <p> After Walter and Rose were married, they probably lived with her maternal grandmother on the family farm since their second child, Ina, was born in the house. This house was on land purchased by her grandfather, Washington Judson, from the government before Michigan became a state.</p> <p> In about 1910, Walter bought a lot in Wayland, Allegan County, Michigan and built a house: 129 West Sycamore Street. The house was constructed partially of glazed tiles about twice the size of an ordinary brick; the remainder was wood. It was a fine suburban two-story house. However, the family was not destined to live there long. First, Rose fell from an uncompleted stair landing while pregnant with their last child, Truman. From that time, she never felt good about the house. Second, Walter was apparently very allergic to something used in the

construction of the house. He developed asthma and often sat up all night in misery. They moved to Dorr, also in Allegan County, before Truman was born. At some time during these years, Walter delivered mail on horseback.</p> <p> <center> <table border=1 width=482 cellpadding=0> <tr> <td align=center><img src=../jpeg/Gilbert,Walter,DorrHouse480x268.jpg width=480 height=268><br><font size=-2 face=ariel,helvetica> House built by Walter Gilbert on Dorr farm. </td> </tr> </table> </center> The break in the links with the past generations of farmers and tenant farmers, begun earlier as Walter chose not to follow in the agricultural footsteps of his father, was significantly widened by the decision to encourage their children to attend college. In 1922, the family moved to 942 Bellevue Place in Kalamazoo, near Western Michigan Normal School. Here they offered room and board to students. After receiving the required education and certification, their daughter, Iva, found a job as an art teacher. Soon, she and Harry Mohl were married and lived in the house. The Gilberts, unable to continue paying for the house due to the depression, sold it to them for one dollar.</p> <p> In about 1934 Walter and Rose moved to Birmingham, Alabama. They lived there with their son, Raymond, and his family. Even there work was scarce. Walter spent much time building a large stall out of uncemented field stone to house the family cow. This structure reportedly stood for many years. A few years later they returned to Kalamazoo and lived on Hawley St. with their son, Raymond, and his family. At this time, their son in law, Harry Mohl, was working for the Sutherland Paper Company as a four color press operator. He found a job there for Walter as a maintenance man and cabinet maker. Walter took the position and remained there until 1945 when he retired.</p> <p> In 1943, in preparation for his father's retirement, Truman Gilbert built an addition onto his house on Cork St. in Kalamazoo for his parents. It was a

concrete block structure with a sunny, eat-in kitchen, pantry, bath, comfortable living room with a fireplace, and one bedroom. Walter built all of the cabinets and shelves in the house, and also some of the furniture. Later, a doorway was cut through between the two houses.</p> <p> They celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary in February of 1951. The following is part of an article that appeared in <i>The Kalamazoo Gazette</i> commemorating the occasion. <blockquote> Every St. Valentine's day Mr. and Mrs. Walter J. Gilbert, East Cork Street, have a special celebration. Not only are valentine greetings exchanged, but congratulations are in order, for it is their wedding anniversary.</p> <p> Feb. 14, 1901, the couple was married in her grandmother's Byron township home by the Rev. H. C. Chamberlain. To celebrate their golden wedding, Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert will hold an open house beginning at 2 Sunday afternoon, Feb. 18...</p> <p> Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert have a fine flower garden in the summer. Another hobby is "baby-sitting" with their nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Mrs. Gilbert pieces quilts, sews, and likes a good game of solitaire. </blockquote> The initial impetus for developing this genealogy came from information that Walter Gilbert provided. He had the following information about their children's ancestry, which he used to draw in a diagram of concentric squares, with each larger square representing another generation. The comments and spellings are his.</p> <center> <a name="diagram"></a> <table border=0 width=513> <tr><td width=511> <img src="../jpeg/4chart.jpg" width=511 height=510 alt="Gen.

About two years later, Rose's hip broke and she became bed-ridden. Her health deteriorated quickly and she died of stomach cancer in Matheson Nursing Home, Galesburg, Michigan.</p> <p>

Thelma graduated from Michigan State Normal College (now Eastern Michigan University), taught one year, met Ray, and left her career to marry and raise a family. They moved to Birmingham, Alabama, where Ray had found a job teaching Manual Training: drafting in one semester and wood shop in the next. Unfortunately they were just starting their family when the Depression began. </p> <p> They lived about four different houses in the Birmingham area, and for a while lived on a chicken farm where they had about 1000 white leghorns, a cow, several bee hives and a pecan tree. They might not have had much money but they ate well. There was always chicken and eggs. They made their own butter with young Raymond often being designated to crank the churn. During this time,

Ray's parents, Walter and Rose, came to live with them from Michigan since Walter could not find work. He found no work in Alabama, either. However, he did build a shed for the cow from uncemented field stones. They soon returned to Michigan.</p> <p> Ray had been in the National Guard and the First Cavalry Division of the Army Reserves for a long time. In 1936, after 11 years of teaching school, he and the family left Alabama so he could be the Mess Officer in a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp in northern Tennessee near Jamestown. After a few months, they moved to another CCC camp near Crossville where he was the Commanding Officer. In about 1939, the family returned to Kalamazoo and lived at 722 Hawley Street with Ray's parents.</p> <p> Altho he was over age, Ray very much wanted to be on active duty in the Army in the war he knew the U.S. would eventually be involved in. He wheedled and cajoled and finally got his wish on December 2, 1941, when he was returned to active duty and sent to Fort Knox (his serial number was 0276211). The rest of the family returned to Kalamazoo where they lived with Ray's parents. By now the horses of the cavalry had given way to tanks. Ray spent most of the war years training young men in the art of tank warfare. He was stationed at Fort Knox and Camp Campbell until the Army finally agreed to send him to Japan. His ship was four days out of San Francisco when Japan surrendered (August 14, 1945) and he went on to be in the Army of Occupation in Japan under General MacArthur, whom he always referred to as "that arrogant s.o.b.". He spent nine months in Japan and was prominent in the reconstruction effort.</p> <p> <img src=../gif/Gilbert,RCSignature256x57.gif width=256 height=57 align=right valign=top> Ray's men revered him because he was fair and because he was always willing to do anything that he commanded them to do, such as taking long hikes with full packs. However, he had a bad heart and suffered several heart attacks while in Japan. He was returned to the U.S. about May, 1946, on a medical disability. Back in Michigan, he was made Commanding Officer of a unit at Fort Custer near Battle Creek. He was on active duty for a total of 55 months (thru July, 1946) and earned 70 points. Ray held the rank of Captain until April 1, 1962, when he

was promoted to Major; he received his honorable discharge three days later on April 4th. His heart condition was determined to be "service incurred" and he was eligible for a monthly disability check for the rest of his life.</p> <p> In 1945 Ray's parents moved to a house their son, Truman, built for them attached to his house. Thelma and the children moved into the first floor of a house at 617 West Walnut street near Central High School. After his return, while serving at Fort Custer, Ray and his brother bought a barracks unit and dismantled it for the lumber. Ray used his half to build a house on 1005 Lum Avenue in Kalamazoo. Ray, Thelma, and their two sons moved into it before it was totally completed; Jackie was living in Carson City, Michigan.</p> <p> <table border=1 align=right><tr><td> <img src="../jpeg/4as-tg.jpg" width=223 height=301></tr> <tr><td align=center><font size=-2>Thelma P. Gilbert</tr> </table> During the war, Thelma worked at Gilmore Brothers, <i>the</i> department store in Kalamazoo, in the ladies ready-to-wear department. She was an excellent seamstress and worked briefly for a tailor who lived next door. A year or two after Ray returned from Japan, she took a job as a meat cutter at the Town and County Market; she worked there many years.</p> <p> Ray tried to work after his discharge but his heart slowed him down. The fact that he tried to work in construction didn't help matters. During this time of national anxiety about a nuclear attack, he tried to establish a business building fallout shelters but was not successful.</p> <p> Ray and Thelma would go north in Michigan deer hunting almost every year, usually with his brother and his wife and perhaps a few friends. They seldom got a deer but a good time was had by all. Ray also loved fishing, and playing poker. In later years, he learned leather tooling and made many gifts and other items.</p> <p> The family had a small summer cottage on Fish Lake, west of Kalamazoo past the Wolf Lake Fish Hatchery. As its name implied, it was a good fishing lake and

Ray often provided fresh fish for dinner. One Sunday in August, 1967, while at the cottage, Ray suffered another heart attack. He was taken to Borgess Hospital where he died a week later. </p> <p> Thelma lived in the Lum Avenue house for a few more years until the maintenance and yard work were too much for her. She then sold the house and car and moved to Regency Square Apartments down the hall from her daughter, Jackie, and granddaughter, Denise. She got her first cat there. After a few years, the three of them moved to a house at 3027 Pasadena Drive in the Milwood neighborhood of Kalamazoo. Her progressive disability from congestive heart failure prompted a move to a nursing home. Here she made it clear to her correspondents that she would welcome the ultimate release from her pain and infirmity. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Personal knowledge and interviews with immediate family <li><a href=http://ssdi.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi/ssdi.cgi target=_ss>Social Security Death Records</a>; Ray: 378-14-9737; Thelma: 379-12-6800</ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 4As +nm Perrine, Thelma Letha +sx f +bd 23 Jun 1905 +bp Holland, Michigan +mn Gilbert, Thelma Perrine +dd 25 Mar 1996 +dp Kalamazoo, Kalamazoo County, Michigan +++ad705 Regency Square, Apt. 206; Kalamazoo, MI 49008 +pa Perrine, Henry Herbert +ma Haynor, Blanche Orilla +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 4AA +nm Gilbert, Jacqueline Frances +sx f +bd 29 Jan 1927 +bp Birmingham, Alabama +++ad3027 Pasadena; Kalamazoo, Michigan 49001-4421 616-342-2380 +spouse Currier, Edward A. +bd 4 Mar 1924 +md 4 Jun 1948 +dv in 1951. +child none +spouse #4AAs +child #4AAA +child #4AAB +text

In January, 2000, his daughter, Susan, wrote: <blockquote> He was the chief in the early 70s when we were living in Seward. Kind of a strange story how he got the job. Work was hard to come by and dad was trying to sell a gun so Wayne could have some milk. The police found out about it and gave him a job. He looked like a outlaw with the handlebar moustashe, I still remember dad in his police uniform. He really enjoyed that job.

In 1934, she was living at 2513 Outlook Street, Kalamazoo.</p> <p> By 1942 the house at 942 Bellevue Place had been sold to Harry Mohl and he and Iva were living there. They had bought the house from her father for a token $1.00 when he was unemployed and could no longer maintain it. They were probably supplementing his income as a printer by renting rooms to students. He was a pressman for the Sutherland Paper Company. Between 1947 and 1948, the Mohls moved to 717 Royce Avenue. Their house was built for them by her brother, Truman, who also built the house next door. The house was the last one on a cul-de-sac, next to the "mill pond." The author recalls a favorite picture of a sailboat on the water that hung beside a table in this house. She had created it with crayon ironed into fabric. By 1952, they had sold the house and moved to Intermediate Lake. Later, they moved to Mile Point, Central Lake, near Traverse City, Michigan. There they owned and managed a series of vacation cabins on the lake.

The 1870 <i>History and Directory of Kent County</i> gives his address as (section) 3 Byron, North Byron. The <i>Atlas of Kent County, Michigan&#151;1873</i> shows, on the map of Byron Township, the southwesternmost township in the county, that T. Gilbert owned two 40-acre tracts in section three. Therefore, "T. Gilbert" on the map clearly refers to Truman.</p> <p> His death record (Allegan County, Michigan, Death Record, vol. 4, p. 155) confirms his parents' names and the states in which they were born. It gives his death date as September 18, 1919, and his age as 92 years, 5 months, and 11 days, while his <a href=../jpeg/Gilbert,Walter&HenriettaTombstone.jpg target=gwh>tombstone</a> gives it a day earlier: the 17<sup>th</sup>.

A visit to the house in January, 1983, showed that part of it was very old, having been built on a stone foundation, and that it had been added on to many times. The current owners, while replacing the roof, found that the original roof was cedar shakes that had later been covered over by a "tin" roof. They found an 1869 Indian-head penny in the cedar shakes as they were being removed. Also, in the wall of what is now the bathroom was found an 1888 newspaper. The barn and other out buildings have

been removed and the land sold. There is a contemporary, suburban house now standing where the barn stood. The current owners have just removed the old carpeting from the original floors revealing a rather old looking tongue-and-groove flooring on one of the many additions.</p> <p> The information in the following tables taken from the indicated census records.

He enjoyed hunting small game and anxiously awaited the opening of hunting season each year. He was also an avid fisherman. In his later years, when he was living with his son, Truman, he would frequently go fishing several times a day at the lake across the street from the farm. He would occasionally recount tales of encountering Indians camped on the Grand River during his hunting expeditions.</p> <p> He played the violin by ear. A favorite family recollection is John in his rocking chair, often behind the pot-bellied stove in the livingroom, playing familiar tunes. His daughter, Edna Clack, would often accompany him on the pump organ. One of the grandchildren could be depended on to request <i>Pop Goes the Weasel</i> of Grandpa.</p> <p> John had quite a temper. Donald Winchester tells the story of one time when John went fishing with his nephew, Walter Winchester (Donald's father), and his young grandson, Carl Gilbert (Truman's son).

I was persistent and eventually got one of the jobs when an opening developed. Did that for about 3 years and then moved to the actual Payroll area where I did most all of the functions and ended up as the Supervisor. When Payroll areas started being consolidated, rather than take a transfer to Mansfield Ohio, I accepted a job in the Personnel area. I did all functions in that area but my main responsibility was Pension administration which was probably one of the most enjoyable positions I have ever had. </blockquote> <p> He retired in 1992 after 26 years with the company, part of an early buy-out program.

He had 40 acres west of Dorr, Michigan. When oil was discovered in the area, he worked for four or five winters hauling oil pipe and other materials to the drilling sites on horseback when no other mode of access was available. On the farm, he rotated his crops primarily between oats, corn, and hay. Truman often helped other farmers in need. For many years he actually ran two farms: his and that of his brother-in-law, his wife's sister and her husband. This brother-in-law had such severe arthritis that he was virtually crippled.</p> <p> Truman loved to fish. Across the street from his farm was a lake that he frequented. In the winter he would chop a hole in the ice and dangle a lure in the water to attract the fish. One foggy day he speared a 19-pound pike this way. He was very excited and proud of his catch and desperately wanted a photograph taken to commemorate the event. However, it was so foggy that photography was impossible; they had no flash equipment available.</p> <p> The <a href=http://ssdi.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi/ssdi.cgi target=ss>Social Security Death Index</a> gives Truman's SSN as 364-246175, confirms his birth and death dates, and gives his last residence as Hopkins, Allegan County.</p> <p> Cora worked in a Post Office before they were married. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Gladys Gilbert Nicolai</ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 8AEs +nm Spahn, Cora +sx f +bd 6 Mar 1893 +bp Hopkins, Michigan +dd 1 Oct 1974 +dp Hopkins, Michigan +tb She was living at 3091 22nd St., Rt 1, when she died. +pa Spahn, George +ma Knobloch, Laura +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 8AEA

He had a slaughterhouse on his farm. Since there was no refrigeration, the slaughtering had to be done very early in the morning while it was still cool. He would take his meat to the packing company.</p> <p> Ozro and Hannah and their family lived on the farm until the early 1920s when they sold it to their sons Walter and Orra.</p> <p> Ozro died of a rare disorder where his heart grew to the pericardium (the sac around the heart) which inhibited its pumping action.</p> <p> Hannah had very long hair.

I remember her sitting in a rocker, her long hair reaching the floor, and letting little Tom and me comb it."</p> <p> The Winchester family came to Michigan in the 1850s. They originally immigrated to Boston in the 1630s.</p> <p> Grandson LaVerne (Tom) wrote: Grandma Hannah often visited our home or, in some cases, spent some time with my family.

My recollection of her was as a quiet, old and serene woman who also liked a little adventure&#151;she was especially fond of going for airplane rides. In the summer of 1932 she was staying at our house helping to care for my younger brother Bob who was less than a year old at that time when my Dad came home to tell us a barnstormer was giving rides in a hay-field a couple of miles up the road near the little village of Burnips. My brother Don and I had our first airplane rides that day and Grandma Hannah also flew that day.</p> <p> The following biographical sketch of the parents of Ozro was taken from <i>History of Kent County</i>. <blockquote><font size=-1><div align=justify> Calvin Winchester was born in Chester, Geauga Co., O., June 20, 1837. His father, <pix Winchester, Layden>, of English descent, was born in Connecticut, Jan. 23, 1798. He is a hale old man of 83, seeing as well as ever without the use of spectacles. He lives with his son. Mr. Winchester's mother was born in a small town called Jericho, in Chenango Co., N.Y., Feb. 4, 1796. She is Scotch by descent and exhibits the tenacity of life of her ancestral race, being still remarkably active although 85 years old. When Mr. W. was 17 his father purchased 80 acres of land in sec. 10, to which 50 more were afterward added; 40 of this comprises the estate occupied by Mr. W. of this sketch. He was married in Dorr, Allegan Co., July 31, 1859, to Cleona, daughter of Alonzo P. and Caroline M. (Blakeslee) Terrell, who was born at Ridgeville, Warren Co., O., May 29, 1844.

Per the 1895 Grand Rapids City Directory, he worked for Grand Rapids Dairy Co. and boarded at 40 South Division. In 1903 he and Blanche lived at 221 Carlton, his occupation was listed as milk peddler. In 1906 the family lived at 959 Wealthy S.E. and owned a dairy also at that address. He became a citizen in 1910. In 1917 he is listed as the owner of Furniture City Dairy at 1145 Wealthy S.E. (in 1912 street numbers were changed and 959 became 1145); it was still his residence. He was still there in 1945.</p> <p> Research by <pix Nauta, John> indicates that Blanche filed for divorce from Theodore Groothoff [pronounced <i>Groat' hoff</i>] on the grounds of abuse and cruelty. The divorce records show that he sought custody of Isla and Robert and accused Blanche of being "intimate and friendly" with John VanderVeen. Blanche testified under oath that Robert was Groothoff's son; therefore, his parentage must have been an issue and implies that Theodore accused Blanche and John of being intimate and friendly at a time that could have lead to Robert's conception.</p> <p> Per the divorce testamony, Isla had learning disabilties and a hearing problem, and was attending Webb Academy in Grand Rapids.

In 1915, Blanche VanderVeen, pregnant with Adele, petitioned the Court to move to Middleville with her husband and children so John could go to work for his brother Harry VanderVeen. Theodore Groothoff contested this because Isla because he did not want Isla removed from the Webb Academy for which he paid the tuition as part of the divorce agreement. He asked the judge for custody of both Isla and Robert. He apparently was denied. At some point, Robert Groothoff was given the name Robert VanderVeen.</p> <p> Blanche was his second wife. He had one child by his first wife.</p> <p> John VanderVeen owned and operated a grocery store in Middleville. In April, 2001, their granddaugher, Jane, wrote: <blockquote> Middleville's downtown consists of one block of stores running on both sides of the road running eastish and westish. then the whole block of the northside had stores all around the complete block. The Thornapple River runs along the west of town with a couple of businesses accoss the river farther west. The original store was strickly a grocery store and was located at the begining of the block on the northwest corner of downtown. When I was growing up in Middleville, it was a Post Office. Mom says that the original store was there in 1915. Around 1921 they moved the store farther down the block moved into a larger store and had a combined grocery and dry goods store. Blanche and John were both active participants in these stores. 1928ish they built a new store farther up the block, they are now located on the northeast corner of the main drag of downtown. Soon after John died, the grocery store was sold to Margaret and Gerald Keegstra. Maggie went to school in Middleville with Bob, and Jerry was from Grand Rapids. </blockquote> <p> It should be noted that all written records concerning Mr. Groothoff refer to him as Theodore; however, some family members refer to him as John.</p> <p> In March, 2000, Donald Winchester related: <blockquote> "I knew absolutely nothing about Aunt Blanche's first husband, "John" Grothoff. The folks never mentioned him. That union produced one child, Isla. Isla married Ralph Kenyon, a farmer, and they had one daughter that died in infancy. Isla died in 1964, at age 59(?).

Aunt Blanche's second husband was John VanderVeen. They were the parents of Robert ("Bob"), and Adele. Bob passed away in September of 1998; Adele is still living. </blockquote></p> <p> "Mom told me that Aunt Blanche was a very kind and good person. She also died prematurely, due to a weak heart, caused by drinking raw milk when she was young, and this resulted in 'undulent fever'. This was before pasteurization." </p> <p> <table bgcolor=#F0FFFF border=1> <tr><td colspan=8 align=center> <b>1910 Census, Kent Co., Michigan</b><br> <font size=-1>City of Grand Rapids, Ward 3; <i>Archives Reel ____, vol. 1, E.D. 63/68?, sheet 9B</i></font></tr> <tr align=center> <td rowspan=2><i>Name</i></td><td rowspan=2>&nbsp;</td> <td rowspan=2>&nbsp;</td> <td rowspan=2><i>Age</i></td><td colspan=3><font size=-1><i>Birth Place</td> <td rowspan=2><i>Occup.</td></tr> <tr align=center> <td><font size=-1><i>Self</td><td><font size=-1><i>Father</td> <td><font size=-1><i>Mother</td></tr> <tr align=left> <td><font size=-1>Groothoff, Theodore</td> <td><font size=-1>Head</td><td><font size=-1>M</td><td><font size=1>41</td> <td><font size=-1>Hol Dutch</td><td><font size=-1>Hol Dutch</td> <td><font size=-1>Hol Dutch</td><td><font size=-1>Dairyman</td></tr> <tr align=left> <td><font size=-1>&nbsp; Blanche</td> <td><font size=-1>Wife</td><td><font size=-1>F</td><td><font size=1>30</td> <td><font size=-1>Michigan</td><td><font size=-1>Michigan</td> <td><font size=-1>Ohio</td><td><font size=-1>None</td></tr> <tr align=left> <td><font size=-1>&nbsp; Isla</td> <td><font size=-1>Daughter</td><td><font size=-1>F</td> <td><font size=-1>6</td> <td><font size=-1>Michigan</td><td><font size=-1>Hol Dutch</td> <td><font size=-1>Michigan</td><td><font size=-1>(at school)</td></tr> <tr align=left> <td><font size=-1>&nbsp; Winchester, Bert</td> <td><font size=-1>Bro-in-law</td><td><font size=-1>M</td> <td><font size=-1>25</td><td><font size=-1>Michigan</td> <td><font size=-1>Michigan</td><td><font size=-1>Ohio</td> <td><font size=-2>Money Clerk<br>U.S. Express</td></tr> <tr align=left>

Blanche Winchester Groothoff VanderVeen was a giving and loving mother-in-law to Marjorie. Marjorie tells of a weekend when she and Robert were still dating and they with another couple went to Chicago. The men rented a room and an aunt of the other woman, who lived near by, came and picked up the women for the evening and delivered them back to the hotel the next morning. After a great two days in Chicago, they came home and someone asked Bob what he had done over the weekend and he told them that he got married. When Marj came back to Middleville the next weekend, Blanche took her by the arm and introduced her to all of the merchants at their stores as Bob's new wife. When Marj went home, she told her mother what had happened and Grace told Bob that he'd better tell his mother the truth or get married. Bob always said that he was forced into a "shotgun marriage."</p> <p align=justify> Blanche and John both worked very hard at the store. Their lives revolved around the store and the other merchants in Middleville. Blanche taught Marjorie family recipes and gave her the acceptance and love that she had never found in her own family.

Those were the years when he worked on the railroad and also for some company where he had invented something that put him in good standing with the company and he also became very religious in that period after he married Hattie Jolly. These are bits of things I picked up by listening. When I met John, his dad was married to Gertrude House and after 12 years of that marriage he wanted to divorce Gertrude but decided to stick it out. Gertrude outlived him and lived to be in her90's when she died. Wilma cannot walk and uses a walker away from home and a wheelchair at home. She needs a lot of assistance.

She was going to go to work for three months to help pay bills and it turned into 23 years of working on the assembly line. The last two or three years were hard for her because she had lupus, too. My dad's insurance wouldn't cover her so she worked for the insurance.</p> <p align=justify> As far as temperment, she was a stubborn Greek. Would not change her mind about anything. She was a very loyal friend. <i>If she liked you,</i> she would do anything for you. If she didn't like you, she didn't pretend that she did. What you saw is what you got. If you told her a secret it went to her grave with her. She really didn't enjoy life like I wish she could have.

She was as strict with herself as she was with everybody else. We did have some fun times and when they were happening, I told myself that I was glad I could have some fun memories of her. She was quite rigid.</p> <p align=justify> My parents had a place they went to in Phoenix, Arizona for several years. I went there a few times and I love it to visit. I wouldn't want to live there, though. Not enough water around. I need water around me. I guess because I'm a cancer sign. Their place was on the desert and I loved to walk out onto the desert and find different stones and plants. My mother loved stones, too. She bought a rock polisher. They are beautiful after being polished. I have her stones. I think my dad got mad at me for getting so many pieces of dried cactus from the desert. It was so interesting.</p> <p align=justify> My mother was a good seamstress. She made a lot of my clothes and nearly all of her own. One time she made a suit for my dad, but she said never again. She had a hard time with the trousers. She made all my dad's suit jackets and all her own suits. There really wasn't anything she couldn't do. One time my dad wanted to buy an organ. She didn't know why because she couldn't read music. She took music lessons and did quite well. If she put her mind to it, she did it.</p> <p align=justify> My dad was on the U.S.S Gambier Bay which went down during World War II. She was the only aircraft carrier that we lost to a Japanese torpedo. He was in the water two days and two nights before being rescued. They lost a lot of men. I went to one of my dad's ship reunions and I don't think I want to do it again. It was too emotional for me.</p></td></tr> </table></center> <p> Elaine suffered with lupus for many years; she eventually died from it in Micosta General Hospital. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>John and Josephine Winchester; August, 2000 <li>James Kuikstra; March, 2001 <li>Sandra (Kuikstra) Pratt; March, 2001 <li>Marchelle (Pratt) Stewart [#8BBABAA]; March, 2001</ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 8BBABs +nm Kuikstra, Henry Louis

<font size=-2>Calvin Walter<br>Winchester<br>ca. 1912</font></td> </tr> </table> As young men, Walter and his brother, Bert, worked for the Grand Rapids Railway Express Company. Then, Walter and his brother Orra purchased the Dorr farm from their parents in the early 1920s and went into business together: <i>Winchester Bros.</i> Per Don Winchester, "I do not know when the partnership was formed, but they bought and sold livestock, machinery and real estate&#151;just about anything where they could turn a buck. Dad used to say:"<i>I'll sell anything I got except my wife, but if the price is right, I'll even think about her</i>". Mama would just laugh, of course. Uncle Orra could keep you entertained, talking about those horse/trading stories and the characters they did business with. Those were truly, "buyer beware" days. They did real well at it.</p> <p> In 1926, after their son LaVerne (Tom) was born, Walter and Florence moved onto the farm and his parents went to live with Orra and Emma.</p> <p> Walter and Orra convinced Bert to become a third partner because he was "good with numbers". When Bert died in 1945, the partnership was dissolved with Walter getting the farm and Orra the place in Corinth where they lived. After Walter and Florence sold the farm, they moved to Hopkins, then to Plainwell, and finally to Central Lake, Antrim County, Michigan.</p> <p> Walter was very strong from constantly carrying sides of beef. Even in his advanced years, he could hoist and carry an entire side of beef. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Walter Joshua Gilbert <li>Donald Winchester; February, 2000</ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 8BHs +nm Barber, Florence +sx f +bd 22 Feb 1904 +bp Diamond Springs, Allegan County, Michigan +dd 26 Feb 1989 +dp Bellaire, Michigan +db Winchester Cemetery, Byron Center, Michigan +++adTorch Lake, Michigan +pa Barber, John +ma Pearl, Mary Elizabety +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++

As a young man, Don liked to hang around the little airport in Allegan County. One blustery winter day, a friend encouraged Don to go with him to Texas where a friend could find them some work&#151;and it was warm. They left on the spur of the moment and Don never moved back, much to his parents' consternation.

</p> <p> "I came to Texas to find work in aviation. This was my first choice and what I was trained in. However, because of the returning servicemen after the war, there were few openings and not much demand for people of my skill and experience. I was forced by necessity to change my line of work and took a job as a sheet metal apprentice. The pay was 75 cents an hour. I have spent my entire career associated with the sheet metal field."</p> <p> "My fun things were fishing, following my favorite sports teams: the Detroit Tigers and Dallas Cowboys. Oh yes, to take an occasional trip with the family." </p> <p> In September, 2001, Don wrote: <blockquote> The Winchester Bros., Dad, Uncle Orra and Uncle Bert bought and sold livestock, farm machinery, real estate and anything else for a potential profit.</p> <p> One of their endeavors was buying hay in the summer when it was cheap. This enabled us to feed our stock in the barn during the winter and sell the surplus for a profit. By word of mouth at stock sales, etc., they had no trouble buying all the hay needed to satisfy these needs.</p> <p> There was one catch: We had to cut and haul it, and sometimes after we filled our barn, we would rent an empty barn somewhere and store hay there, too.</p> <p> To do this, we would move our equipment; mower, rake, and loader (baler for bales) to the hay field. For hauling, we removed the stock rack from our International truck and to increase the capacity, we bolted down plank extensions that extended back about 4 feet behind the bed.</p> <p> In the summer of 1944, when I was only 16, one of my jobs was driving this truck to and from the barn to the hay fields. Dad and Uncle Orra also traveled back and forth in another vehicle.</p> <p> On one of these trips to get a load of hay in '44, I traveled east through Dorr, crossed the Byron Center road(4-Corners?) and headed east towards 31(now 131). Soon after leaving Dorr, there was a very long and steep incline or hill to climb. On each side of the road, (now #142) was a long

and very steep and sizable drop to the ground below. I got nearly to the top of this hill and of all things, I ran out of gas. I remember getting out of the truck, looked back down the hill towards Dorr and saw the Sunoco station on the NW quadrant at the 4-Corners intersection. I got the bright idea that if I put the truck in neutral and pick up enough speed, I could coast back down, and maybe nearly to the station. How lucky could I be? And how wrong I was!</p> <p> I got back in the cab, put the truck in neutral and started to gain speed going backwards. I didn't get very far before I realized I was oversteering and the truck started sash-shaying and became uncontrollable. By then, the truck was going too fast to stop by braking. It went into a spin and came to a very sudden stop, cross wise on the 2 lane blacktop road. I got out and surveyed the situation. The rear wheels were just inches from going over the embankment and the long drop to the ground below, which certainly would have wrecked the truck and quite possibly injury to myself.</p> <p> Very soon (2 or 3 minutes) after this frightening experience, Dad and Uncle Orra drove up. They asked me what happened and after I told them, Uncle Orra said that because of "toe-in", it was impossible to steer any car going backwards. This of course was new news to me, but it makes perfect logical sense. A car with "toe-in" going backwards would be the same as a car with "toe-out" going forwards. It would have no directional stability and be virtually uncontrollable.</p> <p> Dad and Uncle Orra were not upset with me at all, and after they got some gas for me, I was soon on my way to the hay field.</p> <p> To this day when I hear the term "toe-in", I remember the day 57 years ago when Uncle Orra explained it to me. </blockquote> <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Donald Winchester; Feb., 2000; Sep., 2001</ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 8BHBs +nm Vaden, Norma Dee +sx f +bd 22 Feb 1929 +bp Blackwell, Oklahoma +pa Vaden, Carl

After one or two trips, they all moved to Alberta. Family pictures show the Lilly farm near Nanton, Alberta being large and successful enough to afford the large steam tractor shown in the picture. The land was absolutely flat and rich, having been formerly a prairie. During the fall harvest, there were enough men working to warrant a cook, a cook house, and the assistance of several of the Lilly daughters. In Fall, 1914, daughter Hattie wrote of being "a dining-room girl on the outfit this fall, the first time I have ever been out...". The cook must have

lived on the farm at the time since there is a picture showing her with Alma, Hattie, and Roy who is holding her cat.</p> <p> <img src=../jpeg/Lilly,Grove&Hattie-on-drill400x167.jpg width=400 height=167 align=right> While the steam engine was used for heavy tasks like plowing, horses were used for much else. For example, they had a 10' drill which was pulled by three horses. (A drill is a planter which creates a series of continuous furrows in plowed soil, drops in seeds at the appropriate rate, and covers them over.) The picture at the right shows Grove and daughter, Hattie, on the drill to see that the seeds are distributed properly.</p> <p> Library and Reference Services of the Provincial Archives of Alberta checked the index to the 1901 Canadian national census for Alberta. Unfortunately there is no listing for Grove Lilly. There is one for Howard Liley and one for William Lilley. Therefore, the Lilly family must have moved to Alberta after 1901. <center> <table width=352 border=1> <tr><td><img src=../jpeg/Lilly,Hattie,Alma(Gilbert),Etta,Alma~1918,350x192.jpg width=350 height=192></td></tr> <tr align=center><td><font size=-1>The Lilly Ladies: Hattie, Alma (Gilbert), Etta, and Alma<br>About 1918</td></tr> </table> <br> <table width=514 border=1> <tr><td><img src=../jpeg/Lilly,Gln,Roy,Et,Grv,Hat,Deb,Alm,Elt~1950,512x215.jpg width=512 height=215></td></tr> <tr align=center><td><font size=-1>The adult children of Grove and Alma (Gilbert) Lilly about 1950</td></tr> </table> </center> <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Correspondence with Ruth (Clark) Dann; March 2002 <li>Notes and interview of Walter Joshua Gilbert <li>Winchester Cemetery tombstones <li>Interview with Gladys Gilbert Nicolai</ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 8Es +nm Lilly, Grove +sx m +bd 3 Jun 1860 +bp Byron Center, Kent County, Michigan, U.S.A. +dd 8 Feb 1933

In 1806, when he was 11 years old, the family moved to Portage County, Ohio. Here he met and married Hannah Calvin. They lived in Paris Township of Portage County where their children were born. Between 1840 and 1844 the family moved to northwest Ohio, Centre Township of Williams County; then between 1853 and 1860

some of them moved to Middleville Township, Barry County, Michigan. Census records give his occupation as farmer.</p> <p> Their three daughters and son, Joshua, were married in Williams County between 1845 and 1858. In the <i>History of Williams County, Ohio</i> on page 497, Centre Township, it is written that the construction of the Disciples' Church was assisted by Isaac Ewan (Betsy's husband), $315, and George Miser (Urania's husband), $75. C.&nbsp;M. Gilbert contributed $120, although his relationship with the other Gilberts has not been established.</p> <p> Walter Joshua Gilbert, grandson of this Walter Gilbert, and son of Truman Gilbert, remembers that Walter and Hannah (Calvin) Gilbert had children: Sophronia, Betsy, Homer, Joshua, Truman, and another daughter with a married name of Miser, and there may have been others. He is the source of much of the information on his aunts and uncles mentioned above.</p> <p> Hannah's date of birth was determined from her age at death, 74y 4m 9d, as given on her tombstone. A visit to Parmalee Cemetery in January, 1983, found her stone, and her husband, Walter's, to be simple tablets. While hers was erect and quite readable, his had fallen over and was buried in snow and leaves. This may account for her presence and his absence in one available census of this cemetery. The stone was repaired and reset.</p> <p> <table bgcolor=#F0FFFF border=1 align=right> <tr align=center> <td colspan=21>1830 & 1840 Censuses for Paris Twp., Portage Co., Ohio</td> </tr> <tr align=center> <td rowspan=2>Walter<br>Gilbert</td> <td colspan=10>Males (ages)</td> <td colspan=10>Females (ages)</td></tr> <tr align=center> <td><font size=-1>&nbsp;0&nbsp;<br>5 </td> <td><font size=-1>&nbsp;5&nbsp;<br>10</td> <td><font size=-1>10<br>15 <td><font size=-1>15<br>20</td> <td><font size=-1>20<br>30 <td><font size=-1>30<br>40</td> <td><font size=-1>40<br>50 <td><font size=-1>50<br>60</td> <td><font size=-1>60<br>70 <td><font size=-1>70<br>80</td> <td><font size=-1>&nbsp;0&nbsp;<br>5 <td><font size=-1>&nbsp;5&nbsp;<br>10</td> <td><font size=-1>10<br>15 <td><font size=-1>15<br>20</td>

The LDS Web database in 1999 has an Anthony Rockhill who married a Rosetta Robins and lived in Eagle Creek, Clackamas, Oregon (northern Oregon, just south of Portland). Their daughter, Louisa Mary Rockhill was born 25 Dec 1848, died 27 Dec 1931, and married James William Foster on 28 Jan 1867. The coincidence of the names, the time, and place is just too great for Rosetta not to be part of this family. Also, Timothy Titus Robins had a sister named <i>Rozetta</i>.<br> BLM records show that on April 5, 1876, Anthony Rockhill bought 160 acres in Columbia County, Washington (sec. 6, twp. 10-N, range 40-E); on July 25, 1892, he also bought an adjoining 160 acres (sec. 7, same twp.).

He was a school teacher.</p> <p> Since Timothy came from a long line of Quakers, it is reasonable to believe that he was a Quaker, too. Therefore, he probably would have lived in an area with a Quaker community. He was 52 when his daughter, Henrietta, was born and 68 when she married Truman Gilbert in Portage County, Ohio, in 1850, the family must have at least passed thru Ohio around that time. Truman and Henrietta's first two children were born in Ohio and the rest in Michigan; from the birth dates, the family must have moved to Michigan about 1858. Perhaps Eliza Robins and Joshua Gilbert accompanied them because they were married and their first child was born in Michigan in 1860.</p>

He reared a family of nine children, of whom the names of eight can be recalled to memory, viz: Charles, Truman, Lyman, Marvin, Walter, Champion, Ezra and Rebecca. [missing is Benjamin] </blockquote> In <i>History of Portage County, Ohio,</i> are found the following references to Truman Gilbert and his family. <blockquote> [p. 501] When Truman Gilbert was raising his house in 1806, and was being assisted by the neighbors, as usual, and some Indians, an eclipse of the sun occurred, which badly frightened the latter. They left the work, got out their bows and arrows and began firing their arrows up into the heavens in the direction of the slowly darkening sun, to scare off the evil spirit.</p> <p> [<i>Note:</i> This eclipse occurred on June 16, 1806. It began in eastern Canada and was full at local noon over northern Maine and proceeded southeast to northern Africa. It also should be noted that the Indians' primitive remedy was obviously successful.]

</blockquote> On page 503 of the same book, it mentions that on April 2, 1810 the first elections were held in Palmyra township in which Truman Gilbert was elected as a fence viewer and <pix Gilbert, Charles> as constable. The above information is also given in <i> Portage Heritage, History 1807-1957</i> on pages 402 and 403.</p> <p> The following paragraph is found in <i> Memorial to the Pioneer Women of the Western Reserve</i>. <blockquote> In 1806 Mrs. Truman Gilbert arrived with her family. They lived in their traveling wagon, till with the help of Indians and a few white neighbors, they got their house put up. Mr. Gilbert had to go twenty miles to mill, cutting his way through most of the distance. Once the barrel of meal failed, and they lived on turnips till he returned. They had eight sons and one daughter, Rebecca. Their eldest son, Charles, and wife Amelia also had <ix Gilbert, Amelia> eight sons and one daughter, Laura. <ix Gilbert, Laura> Forty-five years elapsed before a death occurred in their family. ...</p> <p> Palmyra, in Portage county, is a township of pretty good [<i>sic</i>] and more settlers than any other town on the Reserve, except Cleveland and Warren. The people, mostly from Connecticut, are distributed all over the town. The land is nearly all taken up.

Joshua and his family left Hunterdon County, New Jersey, in late 1786 or during 1787 and followed his brother, Robert, to Hampshire County, Virginia (now West Virginia). <center> <table width=80% border=0 cellpadding=8> <tr><td bgcolor=#EEEEE0><font size=-1><p> The following is taken from <i>The Calvin Families</i>, pp. 58-74.</p> <p align=justify> Joshua Calvin and family reached their destination at a time when Hampshire County was about to benefit from a momentous change. The enormous land holdings of Lord Fairfax, based upon a grant by King Charles II of England and amounting over six million acres, comprised all the territory between the Potomac and Rappahannok Rivers to their sources and included all of what is now Hampshire County. It had not been Lord Fairfax's policy to give settlers in this region full titles to their lands, but after a small down payment to require them to pay him an annual fee or rental. Now, with the close of the Revolution, the Virginia Legislature nullified the old English grant, gave fee simple titles to those occupants who had previously made contracts with Lord Fairfax, and declared the remainder of the lands to be public domain open to settlement. In may have been news of this reaching New Jersey which had impelled Joshua to move there with his family at this time. At any rate in Maxwell and Swisher's <i>History of Hampshire County</i> the name of Joshua Calvin appears in a list of the first 200 settlers to file on the newly-opened lands. His entry was made in the year 1788 and conveyed "400 acres on the waters of the Little Capon," a small tributary of the Potomac River. [Note: The

compiler of this genealogy, Walter Gilbert, also owns land on the same river, now called the Cacapon, at a place between Joshua's site and the confluence with the Potomac. It is a favorite place for resting and escaping from the stress of city living.] Here in a lovely valley between the first ridges of the Alleghenys not far from the town of Romney, Joshua was to make his home for 28 years; here his sons grew to manhood; and here or in the vicinity all of them except Mahlon and Robert were married. But the tillable land in this mountainous region was limited, and as the sons were married and wanted homes of their own the need for more good farming land was felt. David Calvin, after his marriage, is said to have gone to Loudoun County, Virginia, and to have lived there for a few years, but in 1804 David and his family, together with two of his brothers, Mahlon and probably Robert, made a trip westward over the Alleghenys to what is now Portage County, Ohio. Finding the county attractive, with plenty of fertle land, David settled near Palmyra with his family, while Mahlon and Robert, both then unmarried, after locating desirable land, returned to Virginia. In 1808, Mahlon and Robert returned to Ohio, and were accompanied by their brother, Benjamin, and family, all of them locating in Palmyra Township of the present Portage County, Ohio.</p> <p align=justify> A description of one of these trips from Virginia, evidently this second one, was given the writer [Calvin] some years ago by one of the old timers as it was told to him by a member of the pioneer party who made the journey as a boy of nine in one of the wagons. As the tale went, it took them a long time to get ready in Virginia for the great move. Wagons were prepared, good oxen teams obtained, meats cured, fruits dried or put up, and other supplies made ready. Finally, their movable effects were loaded, and, driving their cattle with them, they set out on the difficult journey over the Alleghenys and the country west of them. They traveled for weeks, sometimes stopping for rests. They would come to rivers which they crossed by cutting logs and constructing rafts large enough to ferry over the loaded wagons, after which they would let

the rafts float off and would proceed on their way, only to come soon to another river when the same procedure had to be repeated. At last they came to an enormous river (evidently the Ohio), which they had much difficulty in crossing, one of the wagons and some of the oxen and cattle having been lost, with several members of the party having a narrow escape from drowning. But at last safe on the other side, damages were repaired and the party continued onward for many more days, until one day the leader stopped, examined marks on some trees at one side of the road, and exclaimed: "This is the place; unyoke the oxen." They had arrived at the located lands in what is now Portage County, Ohio. Such were the journeys of the early Calvin pioneers.</p> <p align=justify> Favorable reports were evidently sent back to Virginia regarding the Ohio country, but Joshua Calvin and his wife, Sarah, were both now getting old and probably hesitated about leaving the Virginia farm which had been their home for so long. The two older sons, Samuel and Luther, who were also still in Virginia, may have felt the same way about it. However, finally in 1816, when old Joshua was 74 years old, all of them decided to make the move. After selling their lands in Virginia, the trip to Ohio was made in safety that year, this last party having consisted of Joshua and wife, their daughter in law, Sarah (Tate) Calvin and young son, John Tate Calvin, (the latter being widow and son of Joshua Calvin, Jr., who had died in Virginia), and the two remaining sons in Virginia, Samuel and Luther, with their families. On arrival in Ohio all of this last party located in Green Township of Mahoning County, adjoining Portage County where the other sons had settled. The date of arrival of this last group of the family was April 27, 1816. Here Joshua and his sons Samuel and Luther all purchased land around a locality which became known later as Locust Grove, which is situated a mile and a quarter east of the small town of Greenford and about six miles northeast of the city of Salem, Ohio.</p> <p align=justify> It is interesting to note that Joshua Calvin here bought 428 acres of land or just 28 acres more than he had made on in Hampshire County, Virginia, 28 years before. Here he built a large log house near the center of the tract, and

settled down to spend the rest of his days. Part of the land thus acquired, 132 acres, is now [1943] owned by John Elmer Calvin, a great great grandson of Joshua, and has therefore been in the family 127 years (1916-1943).</p> <p align=justify> The story has come down that when Joshua and party left Virginia early in 1816, the spring there was well advanced, but that when they arrived at their destination in Ohio on April 27th they found the weather still cold and snowy. Joshua's good wife, Sarah, is said to have wanted to turn right around and go back to Virginia without unloading, but Joshua, a man of few words, proceeded to unload the wagons and make camp without more ado. In fact, the family had unfortunately chosen an extremely bad year to make a start in the new country, as the year 1816 was long noted in Ohio as the year without a summer, ice forming every month in the year and measuring one eighth inch thick on July 5th. Happily, however, the following summer of 1817 was an unusually nice one, so that the good Sarah became quite contented with the new country and never again wanted to return to Virginia.</p> <p align=justify> Thus Joshua Calvin and his clan finally settled down in Mahoning and Portage Counties, Ohio, where many of their descendants still reside today. Here the Calvins prospered and multiplied. Particularly the Locust Grove neighborhood of Green Township in Mahoning County became a Calvin center. Samuel Calvin donated two acres to land for the Locust Grove School in 1834. David Calvin, son of Luther, gave two acres for church and cemetery purposes, and the Locust Grove Cemetery became the Calvin burial ground. </p></td></tr> </table></center> <p> In <i>Early Records, Hampshire County, Virginia</i> is found:<ul> <li>p.42; Land lease and release; 15 Oct 1788; 103 acres on the Little Cacapon River; from Hugh Murphy to Joshua Calvin, both of Hampshire County <li>p. 15; Land transfer; 14 Oct 1790; 426 acres in Hampshire County; from Benjamin and Mary Eli to Joshua Calvin, all of Hampshire County <ix Eli, Benjamin><ix Eli, Mary> <li>p. 19; Land transfer; 19 May 1795; 399 acres in Hampshire County; from John Foreman of Kentucky to Joshua Colvin of Hampshire County </ul>

In the first year of these sales, Joshua Calvin bought 400 acres on the Little Cacapon River.

There is a possibility that he went northward to Northfield or Deerfield, for there he met his wife, Mercy Warner. After their marriage he located not in Colchester, but in the town of Lebanon. His children were baptized by the pastor at Lebanon until 1717. About this time he removed and settled in Gilead Parish of Hebron and continued there until the end of his days. He was appointed Ensign of the North Company or Trainband in the town of Hebron in 1745 and Captain of the Trainband in Gilead Parish in 1749. His will (Colchester Probabate Records, vol. 3, p. 56), dated September 20, 1754, mentions five sons and five daughters. His personal estate was &pound;161.13.06. He was a large landowner.</p> <p> His first child was born before the youngest child of his parents. Therefore, some have assigned to him Lydia, born September 4, 1707, and Mercy, born October 4, 1708. But in his will he does not mention a daughter, Lydia, or her heirs. Hence, we conclude that Abilena was his oldest child. There are other indications that this is the correct assignment.</p> <p> On June 22, 1712, Mercy, wife of Samuel Gilbert, publicly owned the covenant at Lebanon. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Brainard, H.W., Gilbert, and Torrey, <i>The Gilbert Family&#151;Descendants of Thomas Gilbert, 1582(?)&#150;1659 of Mt.

According to Mrs. Grace (Calvin) Taylor, one of his great granddaughters, "... came from England and bought land in [what became] Frenchtown and a hotel on the Everittstown Road..." Both of these places are in Hunterdon County. In <i>Hunterdon County History</i>, by Snell, it is stated that the Frenchtown locality was known in 1759 as Calvin's Ferry and that a road lead from there to Everettstown. The inference is clear that this name came from Luther Calvin and that he had established a ferry across the Delaware River there, 24 miles up river from Washington's famous crossing.</p>

<p> Luther was probably the same Luther Calvin who was a 1<sup>st</sup> Lieutenant in the Associated Companies in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, across the river, in 1756 during the French and Indian War.</p> <p> Nothing is known of Luther's wife, but his name is mentioned in New Jersey records in connection with the administration of the estate of Mary Park, <ix Park, Mary> nee Heath.<ix Heath, Mary> in Bethlehem Township, Hunterdon County, in 1757. Claude Calvin speculates that Luther may have been Mary's son-in-law. <p> New Jersey tax records of 1778 do not show Luther Calvin as a land owner so it can be presumed that he had died before then.</p> <p> All of the children are believed to have been born in Bethlehem Township of Hunterdon County and to have grown up and married in that area. Near the end of the Revolution, four of the sons, Robert, John, Stephen and Joshua, emigrated from New Jersey with their families; Luther II and Elizabeth stayed in the state. Apparently Robert left first, about 1780, followed soon by John and Stephen; Joshua left late in 1786 or early 1787. Although the five sons lived in New Jersey during the American Revolution, no evidence has been found of them rendering military service. To the contrary, New Jersey records of the "Loyalists" of the period show that "Luther Colvin, Jr." of Hunterdon County "refused oaths, fined and baled" in 1777, and that "Stephen Colvin" of Hunterdon County also "refused oaths, fined" the same year. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Calvin, Claude W., <i>The Calvin Families</i>, 1945, (929.273 C139c) pp. 58&#150;74.</ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 138 +nm Opdyke, Benjamin +sx m +of Hunterdon County, New Jersey +bd 1721 +bp Dutch Hill, Long Island, New York +dd 1807 +spouse #139 +child Opdycke, Mary +sx f +bd 21 May 1742 +bp Bethlehem, Hunterdon County, New Jersey +dd 10 Aug 1801 She married first _____ Reynolds<ix Reynolds, Mary> who died; she married second <pix Campbell, Obediah><ix Campbell, Mary> on September 1, 1763.

He was a member of the militia, as every able-bodied man upwards of sixteen years of age was obliged by law to be. In October, 1698, he was commissioned Ensign of the North Train Band at Hartford. In July, 1705, he sold land in Hartford to his brother, Thomas Gilbert of Boston, mariner. He sold the inn property in Hartford to Captain Caleb

Williamson, who had come from Barnstable, Massachusetts, to Hartford. About the same time he leased to William Worthington a place on the highway running south from Wyllys Street in Hartford. Worthington bought the property in 1709 and kept an inn there until his removal to Colchester in 1717. This estate lay east of the South Green in Hartford, known now as Brenard Park. An inn was kept there for many years after Worthington left it, probably by Amos Hindale.</p> <p> Soon after this, perhaps in 1706, Ensign Gilbert removed himself and family to Colchester. In May 1707, he was confirmed the Captain of the Train band in Colchester. In 1709 he was Captain of a company in Colonel William Whiting's regiment in an expedition to Canada.</p> <p> "Roll of Col. William Whiting's Regiment, 1709. An accompt of Bounty Paid Coll Whiting's Regiment on the Late Expedition formed against Canada, 1709. The Colls. Perticular Compa. Capt. Samuel Gilbert $2." [Wyllys Papers, "Collections of the Connecticut Historical Society," vol. 21, p. 361.]</p> <p> On April 8, 1724, Capt Samuel Gilbert, then of Lyme but late of Colchester, sold to Joseph Otis of Scituate, Mass., for $770 "all my farm in Colchester, 280 acres." In the same month he gave or sold land to his son, Nathaniel Gilbert. He had removed to Paugwonk within the limits of Lyme. Paugwonk, consisting of territory partly in Colchester, partly in Lyme, became the town of Salem in 1803. The efforts of the inhabitants there to obtain convenient parish privileges is shown by the following docoments:</p> <p> "Petitions of Several Inhabitants of Lyme and Colchester, bordering on North Parish in New London. Your petitioners, being at so great a distance from ye Place of Publick Worship of God on ye Lord's Day in our respective Towns yt but few of them and those with great Difficulty, can attend Upon it there; and living so near to ye Place whereabouts we conclude the meeting house in ye said North Parish in New London will be erected, yt ye most of us may be able in a constant way to attend ye worship of God there, We therefore humbly desire that we may be annexed to and made a part of ye said North Parrish."</p> <p> This petition is preserved in Connecticut Archives, Ecclesiastical, vol. 3, doc. 131, was signed by the autographs of eight men, and was presented to the General Assembly at the May session of 1722. The signature of Captain Samuel Gilbert, clearly made and elegantly formed, followed after the

first signature on the petition, that of Col. Samuel Brown of Salem, Massachusetts, the largest (absentee) landowner in the vicinity, proprietor of about 3,000 acres.</p> <p> Another petition was presented to the Assembly May 13, 1725, this time asking for the establishment of a new parish in Paugwonk, and bears the names (not all autographs) of seventeen signers, of whom Capt. Samuel Gilbert was one.</p> <p> In October, 1725, thomas Gustin was Society Clerk, showing that the parish (not the church) had been legally organized.</p> <p> In May, 1726, the society was legally called New Salem, no doubt in honor of Col. Samuel Brown of Salem, Massachusetts, its largest landowner. About this time Colonel Brown sent a cordial letter to the inhabitants of the new parish, expressing his good wishes at the good work they were ingaged in and telling them to draw upon him to the extent of &pound;50.</p> <p> May 30, 1726, another petition, signed by thirty-eight names, was sent to the General Assembly, among which the name of Samuel Gilbert comes first. The parish, owing to its small numbers and low estate had great difficulty in settling a minister. It was some years before the first minister, Rev. Joseph Lovett, was settled. There exists, however, a warrent ordering James Harris, Jr., collector of the parish called New Salem, to collect "the minister's rate herein delivered unto you and to pay unto the Revd. Mr. Samuel Seabury the sume of &pound;52,15,6. you are forthwith to gather the onehalf part and to pay it to Mr. Seabury. Per order of John Holmes, Samuel Gilbertt, comtt." The rate bill on which the foregoing order is written contains thirty-seven names. Lieutenant Harris' and Captain Gilbert's names appear as the largest taxpayers.</p> <p> Rev. Samuel Seabury, here mentioned, afterwards became a Church of England minister and had pastoral charge of a number of parishioners, scattered over a considerable territory in eastern Connecticut, who owned connection with a church established at Hebron, Connecticut, about 1738, or with St. James Church in New London.</p> <p> Joshua Hempstead of New London, in his <i>Diary</i>, writes of lodging at Gilbert's, at Paugwonk. On Monday, August 6, 1733, Hempstead entered this: "Capt. Samuel Gilbert att Paugwonk died yesternight." Captain Gilbert left no will and no administration or distribution of his estate seems to be extant. Captain Gilbert's gravestone, much broken and decayed, might

have been seen in a neglected field east of the road running south through the New Salem Parish, somewhat south of the old meetinghouse, now standing, but abandoned. A new stone has been erected by descendants in recent years.</p> <p> Another entry in Hempstead's <i>Diary</i>, under a date of Jan. 5, 1741/2, page 387 of the printed volume, is of interest. Hempstead wrote: "I was at home all Day till evening. I went to Madm. Christophers to hear a young man preach that is stark blind and hath been so many years, his name is Prince of Boston. His mother was Capt. Samuel Gilbert's daughter, late of New Salem deceased. he is going to see his uncle at Southhold."</p> <p> The mother of this young blind preacher is supposed to have been Mary Gilbert, daughter of Capt. Samuel Gilbert, born Dec. 3, 1696. No other daughter appears who could have been the mother of the young man Hempstead mentions, as far as known. His father has not been identified among the inhabitants of Boston bearing the name of Prince. His Uncle at Southold may have been the brother of his father or of his mother. If the latter, he was a Gilbert, but no son of Capt. Samuel Gilbert is known who could have been the young man's uncle, unless he was the Jonathan Gilbert born June 29, 1685. But this Jonathan is supposed to have died young. In January, 1742, Mary, daughter of Captain Samuel Gilbert, if then living, was forty-six years of ages and could have had a grown son at that date. The sons of Captain Gilbert, Nathaniel, John and Daniel, are not known to have ever resided at Southold. </blockquote> The following is taken from Lyme, Connecticut, volume 5, p.227: <blockquote> A deed of Capt. Samuel Gilbert's negro man.</p> <p> To all people unto whome these presente Bill of Sale shall come Gilbert Bant of Boston in ye country of Suffolk and Province of ye Massachutes Bay in New England, merchant, sendeth greeting.

Joseph and his wife Mary were admitted as members of the 1st Congregational Church of Woodbury on June 21, 1729.</p> <p> Some of this information is questionable; for example, the existence of two sons named Joseph where the first lived long enough to marry and have children. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>The Barbour Collection of the Connecticut State Library. <li>Hurlbut, Henry Higgins, <i>Hurlbut Genealogy</i>, Joel Munsell's Sons Publishers, Albany, New York, 1888 (via <a href=http://www.hurlburts.com/genealogy/html/d0011/g0000052.htm#I1100

It is probable that he had been living for some time, perhaps a year, in the town previous to that event. This would bring his arrival there very close to his father's arrival at Windsor. After his marriage, Jonathan lived upon a lot near the corner of the present Sheldon and Governor Streets in Hartford, a portion of the lot of William Hills which he bought in 1648/9, Hills having moved across the Connecticut River to the locality still called Hockanum. The original lot was of one acre in extent. The northern part with Hill's original house had passed to the town of Hartford and this house was the first school house in Hartford, and was used as such for a number of years, housing the schoolmaster and his sixteen students of Latin Grammar. Gilbert lived upon the southern part of the original Hills lot in a small house. It was near the house of his father-in-law, Elder John White, who was, however, not an elder at this early

date, the Second Church of Hartford not having been founding until 166970.</p> <p> On January 9, 1640, the town of Hartford gave liberty to Edward Hopkins and John Haynes "To sett up a mill &amp; a bridge one ye Litell River ofer against the palisadoe att theare own proper charge." These were to be finished the following winter and to be kept in repair four years. This mill was on the north bank of Park River, just below the falls, which are near the present Welles Street. In 1655 a new and larger mill was built on about the same site. At a town meeting held June 6, 1646, liberty was given to the townsmen to exchange the mill house for Goodman Gilbert's house, he to have, "alowans of ground out of the meeting howse lot as they think may Resnabelly be spared," he to pay the town forty shillings. Thus the town became the owner of the whole of William Hill's home lot and Gilbert of the mill house and a valuable site near the town's center, not far from the public square. No record has been found to show that Gilbert actually operated the mill, but such was probably the fact. It is possible that this change was not effected, for Gilbert was still owning the south part of the Hills houselot in 1659, when the town sold the north part with the school house to Joseph Smith.</p> <p> In 1651 Gilbert with three other men acquired eighteen acres of woodland in the southern part of town, west of "Rocky Hill" (Rocky Hill is the ridge upon which the buildings of Trinity College now [1950] stand), and in 1653 the town voted that there was "liberty granted to Jonathan Gilbert to set up a warehouse at the common landing place in the little meadow, upon that land without Mrs. Hooker's lot." He erected the building at once. "It was a two story building, had a cellar beneath it and a staircase leading to the second floor. Very likely Gilbert stored here the corn he collected in 1654 for the trainband. He had charge of the military stores for some years." [W.D. Love, <i>Colonial History of Hartford</i>, p. 170.] This achievement gave Gilbert a foothold at the center of the expanding trade and commerce of the town and colony upon the Great River. He profited thereby, although his was not the

only warehouse near the river. This building stood for at least fifty years afters its erection. In 1660 Gilbert further strenghtened himself in the locality by purchasing two islands, called Bird's Island and the Dutch Island. These islands lay near the east bank of the river, opposite the public landing, and even there the channel to the east of them was beginning to fill up. It later entirely disappeared, the main channel of the river working its way westward and cutting away the western bank.</p> <p> On Sept. 5, 1663, he bought from Anthony Wright two acres with a messuage or tenement. It was situated between the market place on the north and Jeremy Adam's land on the south. This land was even then in an advantageous location, and is now in the heart of Hartford, between Central Row and the Travelers Insurance Company's building. Here Gilbert had his residence and kept the inn until his death, and was succeeded after his decease by his widow Mary and son Samuel as innkeepers. Jeremy Adams also kept an inn which was the official meeting place of the General Court and in which he entertained the lower courts and other public officials. No doubt Gilbert also had his share of this public patronage and he was most favorably situated to obtain the latest political and commercial news, an advantage he did not hesitate to avail himself of.</p> <p> Gilbert had meanwhile aquired various parcels of land, woodland and meadow in different parts of town. These need not detain us. In less than twenty years he had secured a firm position in the town and colony, at the very center of its commercial, social, and political life. His second marriage to Mary Wells had without a doubt helped him. From all that can be learned of her, it would appear that she was a keen and practical woman with an eye to business. In this she was like her husband. The two were well mated and worked together for common ends and had common ambitions. From this period also begins Gilbert's participation in public affairs. He is no longer Goodman Gilbert, but is called Jonathan Gilbert, Mr. Jonathan Gilbert and Mr. Gilbert in the records, a sure indication of advancing official and social status.</p> <p> In about 1646, Thomas Stanton, the first marshal of the colony, left Hartford and successor in his office was needed. April 9, 1646, the General Court passed the following order: "Whereas Thos Steynton by his long absence is

disabled to attend the Court according to his place, it is now ordered his sallery shall cease and Jonathan Gilbert is chosen to supply the place for this yeare and the Cort will attend him with reasonable satisfaction." [<i>Colonial Records of Connecticut</i> vol. 1, p. 139.] There is no mention of his re-election annually, but there is record of his appointment as Marshal in 1662, 1663 and 1664 [<i>Colonial Records</i>, vol. 1, pp. 382, 401, 430]. His successor, George Grave, was elected May 11, 1675. Thus we may assume that Gilbert served in this office 29 years altogether.</p> <p> Evidence indicates that the marshal had, either in person or by deputy, the powers and duties of the hangman. No other mode of execution in recognized by the law of the Colony. This power brought Jonathan Gilbert into a tragic situation in the witchcraft cases, which involved his own mother<sup>*</sup>. However it is not certain that he held the office of marshal in 1654&#150;5.</p> <p> The General Court or Colony government employed an official called the "marshall" to carry out its orders and decrees in both civil and criminal cases. He was a constable or high sheriff. He may also have been called upon to execute the orders of the lower or Particular Court as well. The office of marshal is mentioned in the Code of May 1650 and its duties and fees defined. The marshal was allowed 2&nbsp;shillings 6&nbsp;pence for every execution under &pound;5, and 4&nbsp;pence for every mile he goes "out of Town [Hartford] where he liveth"; and for every execution above &pound;5 and under &pound;10, 3&nbsp;shillings 4&nbsp;pence, and 4&nbsp;pence for every mile, and above &pound;10, 5&nbsp;shillings and his other just and necessary charges. "If he be excessive therein, it shall be redressed, and the Marshall is allowed for every attachment half as much as for executions and four pence per mile." [<i>Colonial Records of Connecticut,</i> vol. 1, p. 540&#150;1.]</p> <p align=justify><font size=-1><blockquote> The word "execution" is here used in its civil sense or meaning. Yet Dr. Love in his <i>Colonial History of Hartford</i>, p. 285, says that the execution of criminals devolved upon the marshal. I have been unable to find any record

which directly conferred this duty upon him, except one in which Marshal George Grave was relieved of it. "May 11, 1675, The Court have made chyse of George Grave to be marshall for one year ensuing and until a new be chosen; and in the matter of execution he is only required to provide persons to do it upon the Countreys accot, as he shall be appointed by anthoritie." [<i>Colonial Records of Connecticut</i>, vol. 2, p. 275.] I incline to the view that "execution" in this order means "execution of criminals," although admitting that it may mean only "execution" in the civil sense. Dr. Love is probably correct in his statement. Certain facts connected with the witchcraft cases support his view. One of those accused of witchcraft is said to have seen this worshipful official&#151;the Marshal of the Colony&#151;in a dream and was much distressed thereby. It seemed to presage the end. It may then be safely affirmed that the marshal had&#151;either in person or by deputy&#151;the powers and duties of the hangman. No other mode of execution was recognized by the law of the Colony. This power brought Jonathan Gilbert into a tragical situation in the witchcraft cases, which, as we have seen, involved his own mother<sup>*</sup>. However we cannot be sure that he held the office of marshal in 1654&#150;5. <br>&nbsp;<br> Thomas Stanton was the first incumbent in this office. He was also official interpreter of Indian languages. About 1646 Stanton removed from Hartford and settled in Stonington, then claimed by Massachusetts. A successor in his office was needed. April 9, 1646, the General Court passed the following order: "Whereas Thos Steynton by his long absence is disabled to attend the Court according to his place, it is now ordered his sallery shall cease and Jonathan Gilbert is chosen to supply the place for this yeare and the Cort will attend him with reasonable satisfaction." "Satisfaction" here means compensation. [<i>Colonial Records of Connecticut</i>, vol. 1, p. 139&#150;1 There is no mention of his re-election annually, but there is record of his appointment as marshal in 1662, 1663, and 1664 [<i>Colonial Records</i>, vol. 1,

pp. 382, 401, 430], and in 1663 the Court reaffirmed its former order regarding the "marshall's" fees. His successor, George Grave, was elected May 11, 1675. Thus we may assume that Gilbert served in this office twenty-nine years altogether. <br>&nbsp;<br> There are a number of records of special duties assigned to Marshal Gilbert by the General Court or by the Particular Court. These will be given chronologically. <br>&nbsp;<br> May 15, 1651. "Jonathan Gillburt is appointed by the Courte to goe to Wethersfeild and gather vp the seuerall Sums of mony, of those men whose Cattle did Jointe Damages with Thomas Ossmores, according to the destribution of the whole damage made formerly by the Courte, together with his Just fees and Charges in and about the same, and if any whome it Concerns refuse to pay him, hee is to warne them to appeare at the next particular Courte in Hartford to Answer the same." [Records of the Particular Court, <i> Collections of the Connecticut Historical Society</i>, vol. 22, p. 101.] <br>&nbsp;<br> March 6, 1653/4. Special warrant to Jonathan Gilbert to arrest Thomas Baxter for his misdemeanors and Jonathan to have power "to rayse such considerable forces as hee sees meete to execute his warrant." [<i>Colonial Records of Connecticut</i>, vol. 1, p. 252.] <br>&nbsp;<br> In 1656 Jonathan Gilbert and his brother John Gilbert desired a grant of land in what is now Westfield, Mass., but neither of them complied with the terms of the grant so far as to settle there, and the land was forfeited to Capt. Pynchon, Robert Ashley and George Colton. <br>&nbsp;<br> April 9, 1657. "Jonathan and John Gilbert to go with others to the sachem at Norwootuck and Pacumtuck [Northampton and Deerfield] to tell him of the horrible, bloody acts of some Indians at Farmington." [<i>Ibid.</i>, vol. 1, p. 294.] <br>&nbsp;<br> Jonathan Gilbert also advanced in the military arm of the government. Like all men between the ages of sixteen and sixty years, he served in the trainband or militia company of Hartford. On Feb. 20, 1650/1, he was chosen and sworn clerk

of the trainband in Hartford for the year ensuing. March 11, 1657/8, Jonathan Gilbert and others named to be troopers (i.e., horse soldiers or cavalrymen) under the command of Maj. John Mason.] [<i>Ibid.</i>, vol. 1, p. 309.]<br>&nbsp;<br> October 8, 1668. "This Court confirms Marshall Jonathan Gilbert Cornett of the Troope of Horse." [<i>Ibid.</i>, vol. 2, p. 101.] This made him commander of the Hartford troop. It was a valued distinction, and the title attached itself to him for the remainder of his life, for the title of Cornet appears upon his gravestone in the old Center Cemetery at Hartford.<br>&nbsp;<br> The warehouse, erected by Gilbert near the landing place in Hartford, has already been mentioned. It speedily became a bonded warehouse for imports into the Colony and Gilbert was in fact, if not in name, collector of the port, as records show. <br>&nbsp;<br> March 9, 1658/9, Wines and liquors entering the Colony to be taxed. Jonathan Gilbert appointed to see the entry and recording thereof at Hartford. Such persons to pay 2 shillings for every Butt of Wine and 12 pence for every anchor of liquors. [<i>Ibid.</i>, vol. 1, p. 323.] "Anchor," more correctly "anker," was a measure for liquids, nine or ten gallons capacity.<br>&nbsp;<br> Gilbert did not always comply with the law. May 4, 1663, "This Court doth determine that Jonathan Gilbert's Butt of Wine, seized for the country, be according to the law established, forfeited to the Countrey." [<i>Ibid.</i>, vol. 1, p. 401.] <br>&nbsp;<br> Two records show that Gilbert must have been on good terms with the Indians and able to speak their tongue.<br>&nbsp;<br> November 9, 1659. "Jonathan Gilbert appointed to require payment of that wch Farmington Indians are engaged to pay to this Court yearly, the first payment being due two years now past." [<i>Ibid.</i>, vol. 1, p. 343.]<br>&nbsp;<br> April 11, 166o. "John Allyn and Jonathan Gilbert are appointed to bound [i.e., mark the bounds of] the land of Tantonimo at Podunk to Thomas Burnham." [<i>Ibid.</i>, vol. 1, p. 346.] This land, upon which was an Indian village and

fort, was in the region between East Hartford and South Windsor. Many Indian relics have been dug up there.<br>&nbsp;<br> Such service to the Colony demanded and received material reward. Gilbert's land holdings at Hartford were important, but not extensive. He was not one of the proprietors. In company with his brothers he had leased the Hollister farm at Nayaug (South Glastonbury) for some ten years, probably surrendering the lease at the death of his father in 1659 or about that time. He was now to receive from the General Court a grant of many acres.<br>&nbsp;<br> August 28, 1661, "This Court hath granted to Jonathan Gilbert a farme to the number Of 300 acres of upland and 50 acres of meadow, provided it be not prejuditiall where he finds it to any Plantation yt now is or hereafter may be settled." [<i>Ibid.</i>, vol. 1, p. 372.] Mr. Gilbert had occasion in the course of his official duties to travel often between Hartford and New Haven, and he saw the need of an accommodation for travelers, or halfway house, since the journey between the two places or from more remote places required more than a single day. This was especially necessary after the union of the Connecticut and New Haven Colonies in 1664, since the General Court met alternately at the two places. But Gilbert did not wait until the union occurred in order to accommodate travelers.<br>&nbsp;<br> May 15, 1662. "This Court grants liberty to the Marshall Jonathan Gilbert to keep an ordinary at his house at Cold Spring for relieving of Travellers according to their needs." [<i>Ibid.</i>, vol. 1, p. 382.]<br>&nbsp;<br> This farm and inn were near the present city of Meriden. Mr. Gilbert also bought of Capt. Daniel Clark of Windsor and from the Indian Massecup large tracts of land on the Mattabeset River, now chiefly in the town of Berlin, where his son Ebenezer settled early in the eighteenth century, in the locality known as Christian Lane, so called on account of its being the site of the first meeting house in Great Swamp parish. This land was ordered to be laid out to him (surveyed), May 11, 1671. [ <i>Ibid.</i>, vol. 2, p. 151.] It is evident that he had occupied some part of it before the order of survey was made.<br>&nbsp;<br> The General Court of March 1661/2 and October 1665 granted to Capt. Daniel

Clark of Windsor three hundred acres of land, to be taken up partly on the branches of the Mattabeset River and partly upon the road from Wethersfield to New Haven, at or near a place called Cold Spring on the west side of a ridge of mountainous land commonly called by the name of Lamentation Hills. On Apr. 22, 1664, Capt. Daniel Clarke sold to Gilbert the three hundred acres of this grant. The original deed is still in the possession of Gilbert's Christian Lane descendants. The Clarke tract is described as "lying at a place called Meridam, where Mr. Jonathan Gilbert's farm is and bounded partly on the Mattabeset River, where it may be allowed by the town of Farmington." Four hundred and seventy acres of these two grants were laid out to Jonathan Gilbert at Cold Spring. He also purchased the native right to the land and to other lands at Pagonschaumischaug (the Indian name of the present town of Berlin or Kensington) of the Indian Massecup, son of Suckiauge, the sachem who sold the site of Hartford to its first settlers.</font></blockquote></p> <p> In his will, dated Sept. 10, 1674, at the time when his displeasure over the conduct of his oldest son Jonathan was at its height, Mr. Gilbert bequeathed his farm at Meriden to his son Nathaniel with &pound;30 more; and to his son Ebenezer he gave the three hundred acres he bought of Capt. Clarke, with &pound;50 more and the land he bought of Massecup. His son Nathaniel Gilbert died at some time after the will was made, probably after 1682, and Nathaniel is not mentioned in the will of his mother, Mrs. Mary (Wells) Gilbert, dated May 23, 1700. By the death of Nathaniel Gilbert, the Meriden farm passed to his heirs, his surviving brothers and sisters, of whom Capt. Andrew Belcher of Boston, the husband of his sister Sarah Gilbert, was one. Capt. Belcher by purchase acquired all the interest of the Gilbert heirs in this farm, and in October, 1703, the General Assembly sitting at New Haven confirmed the whole of the four hundred and seventy acres to Capt. Belcher, in consideration of the fact that Belcher had expended money upon the land in building dwelling houses

and settling tenants therein, and in other improvements, which "are like to be a public as well as a private benefit, the said tenements being conveniently situate for the relief of travellers in their journeying from place to place." David Rich, from Wrentham, Mass., and Eleazer Aspinwall from Brookline, Mass., were Capt. Belcher's stewards or managers of the farm for some years. A few other men settled on or near the farm. After a number of years, Capt. Belcher lost his interest in the farm, and after some vears it was sold to parties who divided it amongst themselves. A few traces of its ancient occupation still remain. It lies off the present routes of travel and is seldom visited.</p> <blockquote><p align=justify> Andrew Belcher<font size=-1>was born Jan. 1, 1647. When he grew to manhood, he owned several vessels employed in coastwise trade, besides being the agent of Connecticut Colony in purchasing arms and ammunition and the agent of Massachusetts in procuring provisions from Connecticut to be sent to Boston to supply its army and the Colonv. On one or more of his visits to Connecticut upon this business he stopped at Jonathan Gilbert's inn at Hartford, saw the landlord's fair daughter, fell in love and married her. They had two sons and five daughters. The younger son, named Jonathan after his grandfather Gilbert, graduated at Harvard College in 1699 and soon visited Europe, there making the acquaintance of the Princess Sophia Dorothea, queen of George 1, and also of her son, later King George II. Returning to New England, Jonathan Belcher was Governor of Massachusetts and New Hampshire from 1730 to 1741 and afterward Governor of New Jersey. He was instrumental in enlarging the charter of Princeton College, of which he was patron and benefactor. His son Jonathan Belcher, grandson of Capt. Andrew and Sarah (Gilbert) Belcher, graduate at Harvard College, studied law in London and was Lieutenant-Governor and Chief justice of Nova Scotia. Sir Edward Belcher, a grandson of the lastnamed, was a Commander in the British navy, commanding the expedition which went to the

polar regions in search of Sir John Franklin in 1852. [North's <i> History of Berlin, Conn</i>.]</font></p></blockquote> <p> On June 5, 1662, the Court granted, "liberty to Jonathan Gilbert of delivering upon oath to the Treasurer account of such goods that he doth at any time trade in that are subject to customs."</p> <p> During the years from 1654 to 1664, the records of the Particular Court (after 1666 the Hartford County Court) show that Jonathan Gilbert was a party&#151;generally the plaintiff&#151;in numerous lawsuits involving debt, transactions in trade, and the like. A few were cases of personal damage or injury, growing out of Gilbert's official position as marshal. Gilbert was generally successful in these suits and no indication of wrongdoing on his part attaches itself to any of them. On Oct. 13, 1669, the Court chose Jonathan Gilbert and John Gilbert, then living at Hartford north side, as freemen of the Colony. This gave them the right to vote for the highest officials of the Colony under the charter of 1662 and to hold office as deputies in the General Court or Assembly, which met twice a year, in May as a Court of Election and in October for general legislation. The executive, legislative and judicial functions of the colonial government were not then separated into three independent departments, as in the present state governments. The General Assembly at this time had almost unlimited powers and acted as a superior court of original jurisdiction as well as a court of appeal from the actions of the four county courts. Jonathan Gilbert was chosen Deputy from Hartford in 1677, 1678, and 1681. This was just after King Philip's War, when the colonies were all striving to recover from the ravages of the war and staggering under a heavy load of debt. Connecticut suffered less than Massachusetts and Rhode Island in this respect, but it was a most difficult time. The losses in men and property had been heavy. The records of the time show little if any legislation of interest or importance. Gilbert did not live to see the exciting times when Andros was demanding the surrender of the New England charters and Connecticut's charter was saved for better times through the

sagacity of her officials and the episode which has immortalized Capt. Joseph Wadsworth and the Charter Oak. When the revolution in England brought William of Orange and his English Mary to the throne of England, Andros was driven from his post of governor of all New England and New York, the Connecticut Charter was brought out from its hiding place, and government under it was resumed as of old. Later King William declared the charter of Massachusetts forfeit, but a technical flaw in the proceedings against the charter of Connecticut saved it. Government under it was continued until 1818, when a new state constitution was ratified by the electors.</p> <p> It remains to tell of Gilbert's last days, of his break with his eldest son and the tardy reconciliation.

Jacob is known to be the youngest child and it is possible that his mother was Andrew's second wife, Esther. +spouse Selden, Esther (Wakeman) +child none +text <p> It is probable that Andrew was born in Great Waltham, Essex, England, and lived there until he was about 12 when he moved with his parents to Hatfield Broad Oak. It is likely that he married and that at least two their first two children were born here. No record has been found of this marriage or of his wife, but Warner tradition has it that her name was Mary. The will of Andrew's mother, Mary, made May 12, 1627, gives 20 shillings to "the Two Children of Andrew my sonne". As Andrew was sole executor of her estate, he must have been living in England at the time.</p> <p> The reason for Andrew to uproot his young family and move to America was probably not the desire to own land but religious persecution. Since his family was fairly prosperous and he became a land owner soon after his arrival in America, he probably owned land in England. In 1625, Charles&nbsp;I ascended the throne of England. He at once assumed all the power of Church and State and escalated the existing war against Puritanism. The ministers of that religion were driven from their livings, or into exile, and the laymen were tortured and forced from their homes. Many sought refuge in the New World.</p> <p>

Among those who dared to oppose this policy was the brilliant preacher, <pix Hooker, Thomas, Rev.>. He was silenced as a minister of the church in 1626 but continued to speak as a lecturer in Chelmsford, Essex County, until 1629, when the persecution became so great that he left and escaped to Holland. At this, a large number of his followers emigrated to America, being known as the "Hooker Company" and also as the "Braintree Company", from Braintree, the town in Essex from which many of them came. Andrew and his family likely belonged to this company. Hooker arrived in America from Holland on the <i>Griffin</i> on September 4, 1633, to become the pastor of the church at Cambridge, made up primarily of his followers.</p> <p> Andrew's parents lived in Hatfield Broad Oak after 1609. This town is only 20 miles from Braintree and 16 miles from Chelmsford where Hooker lectured. Andrew and his family must have lived in or near Hatfield at this time as he was the executor of his mother's estate. Therefore, he had every opportunity to become a follower of Thomas Hooker, and his emigration coincided with that of the company. And since Andrew later followed Hooker to Hartford and was a deacon in his church, it is all together likely that he and his family left England to avoid religious persecution.</p> <p> The first direct mention of Andrew Warner in America is an entry in the town records of Cambridge, Massachusetts, then known as "Newtowne". On January 7, 1632/3, there are recorded several votes regarding the erection of houses in the town and the division of the fence to enclose the common, with the number of rods of fence each settler was to build. This is the first entry made in the records of the town save a single item on December 24 calling a monthly meeting. Of the 42 names given, the eleventh was "Andrew Warner, 20 Rod". Only 11 of the 42 settlers built as much as 20 rods of fence while 24 built less than 10 rods each. This would indicate that Andrew Warner was already a resident of Cambridge and was among the more wealthy members. There are many references to Andrew in the town records the nature of which indicate that he was prominent and well respected. On May 14, 1634, he was made a freeman of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.</p> <p> It is interesting to note that Andrew Warner and his family came to America near the beginning of that great tide of emigration which started in 1629.

By that time Plymouth and Salem had been settled, but the total English population of New England was hardly more that 800. In April of 1630, <pix Winthrop, John>, first governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, left for America. Later that year he was followed by 17 ships bearing over 1000 people. By 1634 the annual emigration had reached 4000. In 1640 the Long Parliament met, the power of Charles&nbsp;I was checked, religious persecution declined, and the flood of emigrants ceased. In those 11 years the population of New England grew from 800 to 26,000.</p> <p> The "Mary (Humphrey) Warner" source gives her birth as before 13 Feb 1603, Thaxted, Essex County, England <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li><i>The Descendants of Andrew Warner</i>, 1909 <li>Mary (Humphrey) Warner, The American Genealogist, vol. 26 (1950) , pg. 219 <li>Clues in Records of Essex, England to the Origin of Connecticut Colony Settlers, The American Genealogist, vol. 26 <li><i>Directories of New England Families, 1620&#150;1700</i> <font size=-2> Andrew Warner b.

Henry Castle received a land grant in Fairfield on December 25, 1678. His wife, Abigail, received a legacy in 1667 from the will of Daniel Finch ("&pound;7 to Henry Castle's wife"); his third wife was Mary, the widow of Thomas Dickerson.

From <i>Families of Old Fairfield</i>:<br> &nbsp; &nbsp; Thomas "ffayrechilde" was a merchant who came from England to Stratford, [in what is now] Connecticut, about 1638&#150;39. He was one of the original settlers of Stratford and a prominent citizen. He held many official positions: Deputy (Stratford) to Conn. Legislature 14 times: Apr. 1646, Sept. 1654, May 1655, Oct. 1655, Oct. 1658, May 1659, Oct. 1659, May 1660, May 1664, Oct. 1664, Oct. 1665, May 1666, Oct. 1666, May 1667; Judge (Stratford town), May 1664; Commissioner for Stratford, 1664 and 1666&#150;1670; war committee for Stratford, Oct. 1654.</p> <p> Land records of 1670 show that his sons, Thomas and Samuel, received gifts of land from their grandfather, Robert Seabrook. Later land records show that Zechariah received gifts of land from his brothers Samuel and Thomas, from Jehiel Preston, and his mother, Katharine Judson.</p> <p> His will was read January 10, 1670/1 and mentioned his wife, Katharine; son Samuel (who received the "ferry land"); son Zechariah; daugher Dinah; son Thomas; daughter Emm. It did not mention the children by Katharine.</p> <p> <i>Personal note</i>: This family is in the ancestral lines of both of my paternal grandparents. Samuel's descendants include the Judson family, leading to <a href=4.htm>Primrose Judson</a>; and Zechariah's descendants include the Gilbert family, leading to <a href=4.htm>Walter Joshua Gilbert</a>. Therefore, my father's parents were sixth cousins; unfortunately, they both died before this interesting fact was discovered. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Frost, Wright W., <i>The Frosts and Related Families of Bedford County, Tennessee</i>, 1962, p.53 (LDS Lib SLC). <li>Some data from United Ancestries Co. database, March 31, 1987. <li>Jacobus, Donald Lines, <i>Families of Ancient New Haven</i>, vol.

He moved to Stratford in 1652, and was an original proprietor of Wallingford in 1670, but retained his Stratford residence. <p> He was called "John Beach Sr. of Stratford" in the probate records. The inventory of his estate included property at Stratford and Wallingford, amounting to about &pound;344. On November 6, 1677, an agreement of his heirs was signed by sons John and Thomas Beach, and daughters Elizabeth Preston and Mary Beach; they appointed <pix Curtis, Capt. William>, <pix Chauncey, Israel>, and <pix Preston, Jehiel> as overseers of the estate and minor children in Stratford, and <pix Moss, John> and <pix Preston, Eliasaph> for those in Wallingford. Names and birth dates of the ten children were given in his will. His wife was called Mary at the birth of their last child; nothing else is known about her.</p> <p> The land grant records for King Philip's War for New Haven, Conn., includes "Beach, John ( &nbsp; &#150;1677), (B); he was from Stratford, and returned thither." This was listed in the Wallingford, Conn., list of those in

civilian service. The "(B)" stands for "lower garrison".</p> <p>Note, however, that Jacobus, later states: "Further study of the Wallingford Rrecords leads t the belief that it was not the elder John Beach (d 1677) who served with the lower garrison, this man having removed to Stratford, but rather his nephew John (s. of Thomas) who was certainly then living in Wallingford."

However, the dates, places, and relationships given above are taken from <i>The English Origin of Thomas Gilbert...</i>; they are based on more recent research of English parish records. Most significantly, the former maintains that Lydia Gilbert, who was convicted of witchcraft and presumably hanged, was the wife of Thomas [Sr.] while the latter shows this to be very unlikely, proposing instead, that she was the second wife of his son, Thomas [Jr.]. The author of the latter wrote: <blockquote> <p align=justify> The English origin of Thomas&sup1; Gilbert has not been previously discovered. Since all his children were born before he emigrated, it should be possible to find him in an English parish&#151;if the parish register survives. Here the CD-ROM version of the LDS International Genealogical Index [IGI] is invaluable since it permits a large-scale search of all English counties. Hence I ran a search for any entries that showed a Thomas Gilbert as a parent in England in the 1600s. Because the surname is very common, I found many children born to men named Thomas Gilbert in this period. However, since the immigrant had sons named Ezekiel, Josiah and Obadiah, I searched specifically for them. I was able to locate a Thomas Gilbert who had three such children baptized at Yardley, co. Worcester, in the proper time period. I then made a full search for

all Gilbert entries up to 1650 on a microfilm of the Yardley parish register (Family History Library [FHL] film #1,520,013)....</blockquote></p> <p> Richard and Margery (Morken) Gilbert were living in Yardley parish when their children were born (1576&#150;89). (Yardley is now a suburb of Birmingham lying to the southeast of the city center. It was originally in Worcestershire county, but became part of Birmingham in 1911. The old church in Yardley is dedicated to St.Edburgha.) Likewise, their son, Thomas, married Elizabeth Bennett in Yardley, and the records of the baptisms of all of their children (except Sarah) are there (1612&#150;29). Later, in the Connecticut Colony, their son, Jonathan owned a farm between the present city of Meriden, Connecticut, and the old Kensington parish of Berlin, Connecticut. He named this farm Meriden and the name also appears in his will of 1682. There is a parish named Meriden about 12 miles ESE of Birmingham, very close to Yardley. One could hyphothesize that the Connecticut farm was affectionately named after the English parish. Something must have happened to cause them to uproot and move to America in about 1638 when Jonathan was about 21. For Jonathan to have such an attachment to the name Meriden, the family must have lived there satisfactorily during his late teen years.<font size=-1> <blockquote> The <a href=http://www.ccs.neu.edu/home/cdickins/meriden.html target=mct> Meriden, Connecticut, home page</a> gives the following. "Meriden, originally a part of Wallingford, was settled in 1661 when Jonathan Gilbert of Hartford was granted by the Connecticut Colony "a farm to ye number of 300 acres of upland and 50 acres of meadow." Mr. Gilbert called his farm "Merrideen" or "Merridan." The source of the name is the Meriden Farm, Warwickshire, England.</font></blockquote></p> <p> The earliest mention of Thomas Gilbert in any New England record is found in <i>Boston Town Records</i> (vol. 2, page 49 of the printed records). This is a record of grants of land to 32 men at Mt. Wollaston, formerly in the town of Braintree, but now within the limits of Quincy, Massachusetts. The record in part is as follows: <center> <table width=80% border=0> <tr><td>

The same 24th day of twelfth month February 1639/40 [<i>note</i>: at that time, March was still the first month of the year]... and at the same meeting there was granted to Thomas Place of Mount Wollystone for five heads 20 acres there upon the covenant of 3s per acre.... The like to Thomas Gilbert of the same for 7 heads 28 acres there upon the same covenant of 3 shillings per acre.</td></tr> </table></center> Thomas Gilbert's name stands eighth in the list of grantees, a position presumably of no significance. The expression "seven heads" means that his family consisted of the husband, wife, and six sons, the female children not being considered in the grant. He had also a servant or employee named Joel Jenkins. [This last sentence is incorrect because Thomas's eldest son, Thomas, did not accompany the family to the Colony; therefore, the "7 heads" was somehow alloted for Thomas, wife, five sons, one daughter, and one employee.] It thus appears that Thomas Gilbert with his large family and a servant was engaged in farming upon a grant of new land within the limits of the present town of Quincy from 1639 to 1646 (date of a petition against him; see next paragraph) or a little later. In 1668 the heirs of Thomas Gatlive of Braintree sold to Lieut. John Holbrook all their rights to the mill, mill-ponds, water and water courses, commonage, feedings, messuages, tenements or dwelling houses, together with 40 acres of upland lying near the said mill within a common fence, bounded with the said mill brook and pond toward the north and easterly with the land of Goodman Gilbert. [<i>Suffolk County Deeds </i>, vol. 5, p. 526.] Lands of Gregory Belcher are mentioned in this deed. As the site of the mill is known, the location of Gilbert's land can be approximated.<br> <font size=-1><br>The site of the mill is marked at "Fort Square" (Granite and Pleasant Streets) in Quincy, Massachusetts and was probably directly north of Gilbert's land. There is a small "Gilbert Street" nearby. See the blueprint of land grants at Old Braintree, 1640&#150;45, drawn in 1940 by Waldo C. Sprague of the Quincy Historical Society.</font></p> <p> A petition of 14 of the men of Braintree, dated May, 1646, was addressed to the General Court "for the prswading or forcing Thomas Gilbert either to forbeare feeding yt iland or upland with certaine medowes of their environs, or else to lett it on reasonable termes to the petitioners." The Court determined that an order of Court made in 1643 applied to this case. [<i>See Records of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay</i>, vol. 2, p. 49 and vol. 3, p. 67.]</p> <p> Around 1651 three of Thomas's sons, Jonathan, John and Josiah, moved from Braintree to Wethersfield (now Glastonbury, Connecticut) and leased a farm from <pix Hollister, Lt. John> of Nayaug. At an unknown time Thomas [Sr.] (and presumably his wife) also moved to Wethersfield and assumed the operation of the farm. Thomas was clearly in

Wethersfield by August 17, 1658. On that date a petition signed by him and others in support of Lt. Hollister was presented to the Governor and Magistrates of the Connecticut Colony.</p> <p> Governor John Winthrop, Jr., who for many years was governor of Connecticut, son of the Governor John Winthrop who was founder of Massachusetts, practiced medicine as well as politics. His medical journal has been preserved. In it is an entry indicating that Winthrop attended or prescribed for Thomas Gilbert in his illness in 1659 and giving his age as 77 years (while his age reckoned from the Yardley baptismal records would be 70).</p> <p> The inventory of the estate of Thomas Gilbert, accepted by the court on October 4, 1659, is on file at the State Library, Hartford. There is a copy of it, made in 1663, in volume two of the records of the Particular Court and Probate, page 127, probate side. The other documents concerning this estate are also copied in this volume, the original papers having perished.</p> <p> The estate of Thomas [Sr.] consists of 78 entries with a total value of &pound;189.7s.6d. It included: 16 cattle, 5 oxen, 3 horses, 11 pigs, bees; amounts of wheat, corn, oats, hemp, cheese; and a large assortment of tools and farm implements. Household effects were a bed, three pillows, bedding, a chest with "waring clothes wolen and lin'g"; a "forme" [table?], two stools, one chair, wooden ware, tubs, spoons, and trenchers [flat boards that served as plates], earthenware, tinware, pewterware, brassware.

The author believes that it applies to Thomas [Jr.].</p> <font size=-1> <p align=justify> Francis, Henry, and John Stiles, brothers, were early settlers in Windsor, Conn. Previous to February 28, 1640/1, Francis Stiles held lands described as follows: "A homelot granted by the plantation, with some additions, thirteen and a quarter acres, bounded north by William Gaylord, Jr., south by John Stiles, west by Rocky Hill, east by his own meadow; also nine acres of meadow lying east of his home lot; also some addition in upland, thirty-two acres towards Pine Meadow, bounded north by Joseph Clark, south by Mr. St. Nicholas; also fifteen hundred acres east of the Great River."</p> <p align=justify> About the time that Thomas Gilbert came to Windsor, Francis Stiles was preparing to remove to Stratford and had sold to William Hayden about 26 acres of his 32-acre piece of upland, and on January 24, 1644/5, he sold the remainder, about five acres, to Thomas Gilbert. The deed contains the words "upon good consideration to me secured," which indicates that Gilbert paid little or no money down. Some years later and prior to August 20, 1652, this lot was in possession of John Drake, Sr., and had upon it "a Seler," house, garden,

and fencings. These improvements were probably the work of Thomas Gilbert and probably built before April 22, 1649. The "Seler" was in all probability Gilbert's first habitation in Windsor, an underground house or dugout, commonly used by the first settlers, because it could be quickly and easily constructed, and thus afford shelter until a frame house could be built.</p> <p align=justify> On September 12, 1647, Francis Stiles sold all his remaining holdings in Windsor to Robert Saltonstall, gentleman, of Massachusetts, and describes part of it "as at present in the tenure of Thomas Gilbert and John Bancroft." Clearly Gilbert leased more of the land than the fiveacre lot which he purchased. It is not clear that the tenure terminated at the time of this sale or of the next in 1648, but it is probable that it terminated on or soon after November 24, 1648, when Saltonstall sold his Windsor holdings to Nicholas Davison of Charlestown, Mass. On March 31, 1665, Mr. Davison's widow sold the land to Josiah Ellsworth, and it continued in that family down to recent times. It is the land that lies about the Judge Oliver Ellsworth house, near Hayden's Station, in the northern part of Windsor. It is therefore possible to locate Thomas Gilbert's first residence in Windsor rather closely.<br> <blockquote> The Ellsworth House is owned and maintained by the Daughters of the American Revolution and may be seen on certain week days. Its location is indicated on the "Map of Haydens", 1885. See the <i>Record of the Connecticut Line of the Hayden Family</i> by Jabez H. Hayden, 1888; also Stiles, <i>Ancient Windsor</i>, maps facing pp. 145 and 149, vol. 1.</blockquote></p> <p align=justify> In the month of March or April, 1649, Thomas Gilbert associated himself with Henry Stiles, and this, although with entire innocence on Gilbert's part, led to great misfortune to himself and his family. Stiles was a man of mature age, being past fifty, without wife or family, and boarded in Gilbert's house. Mrs. Gilbert performed many services for him in making and repairing his clothing, tending him in sickness and the like. There is not the slightest trace of any discord or ill feeling of either party to this arrangement. On November 3, 1651, Henry Stiles was accidentally shot in the back and died in consequence of the wound. It was on a training day and the trainband, according to the tradition preserved by President Ezra Stiles, was waiting upon Gov. John Winthrop when he was embarking for England to obtain the Connecticut charter. This charter was obtained in 1662. Therefore this tradition cannot be correct. Tradition apart, the death of Henry Stiles did occur at the time and in the manner related, as the records of the Particular Court, held December 4, 1651, attest: <blockquote>

Indictment of Thomas Allyn. "Thomas Allyn, thou art indited by the name of Thomas Allyn that not having that due fear of God before thine eyes for the preservation of the life of thy neighbor, didst suddenly, negligently, carelessly cock thy piece, and carry the piece just behind thy neighbor, which piece being charged and going off in thine hand, slew thy neighbor to the great dishonor of God, breach of the peace, and loss of a member of this commonwealth.

This fact should be remembered in connection with another trial, soon to be related. </blockquote> <p align=justify> Thomas Gilbert brought in a bill against the estate of Henry Stiles. This bill shows that Gilbert, although careful and methodical in his business matters, could not write his own name, for he signs with his mark, a large "T". The account bears witness to the relations of Gilbert and his wife to Henry Stiles. It is more probable that Thomas Gilbert, after the sale of Francis Stiles's land in 1648, went to live in the house of Henry Stiles, than that Stiles went to live with Gilbert, because he was a landowner and Gilbert seems not to have been at this particular time. Of course both theories may be incorrect. They may have done these things as neighbors, without change of abode.</p> </td></tr> </table></center> <p align=center> <font face=ariel,helvetica>Who Was Lydia Gilbert?</font></p> <p> <i>The Gilbert Family ...</i> maintains that Lydia Gilbert was the wife of Thomas [Sr.], the father of this family, based largely on circumstancial

evidence. In contrast, <i>The English Origin of Thomas Gilbert ...</i> maintains that Lydia was most likely the second wife of his son, Thomas [Jr.], based of the following items.<ul> <li>Thomas [Sr.] was granted land in 1639/40 in "Mount Wollystone" Massachusetts <li>Thomas [Jr.] married in England and their first child, Mary, was christened there on December 12, 1641. Therefore, he did not accompany his father and the rest of the family to America in or before 1638. (This information was not known to the authors of <i>The Gilbert Family ...</i>.) <li>Court records show that Thomas [Sr.] was in Braintree, Mass., in 1646. <li>Therefore, the Thomas Gilbert who arrived in Windsor, Connecticut, and bought land in 1644/45 was not Thomas [Sr.], it was Thomas [Jr.]. There is no evidence that Thomas [Sr.] ever lived in Windsor. <li>Lydia Gilbert was convicted of witchcraft on November 28, 1654, in Windsor. While there is no record of her hanging, which would have been prompt, there is also no record of anyone at that time escaping the sentence "thou Deservest to Dye", either. <li>Less than a year later, in 1655, Thomas [Jr.] married Katherine (Chapin) in Windsor. <li>The wife of Thomas [Sr.] and the mother of his children is known to be Elizabeth Bennett. <li>Among the debts paid from the estate of Thomas [Sr.], who died on September 5, 1659, in Wethersfield, is "<i>charges of funeralls for him and wife&#151;&pound;9:17:06</i>". Therefore, we can presume that his wife died shortly before him, also in Wethersfield. </ul> Therefore, this author believes that Lydia Gilbert was the second wife of Thomas [Jr.] of Windsor, not the wife of Thomas [Sr.] of Wethersfield. However, convictions for witchcraft were such a shocking and memorable part of America's early history that some of the details of Lydia's fate will be presented here.</p> <p> <font size=-1>We must not ascribe to English law alone the inhuman laws concerning witchcraft. The witchcraft delusion prevailed throughout Christendom from the early days of the Church down to the eighteenth century. The absolute belief in the reality of witchcraft and of its divinely ordained punishment was based upon the Hebrew code and held enthralled all Christian Europe. To deny it was the greatest of heresies. Mr. Taylor, in the monograph already mentioned, treats of this phase of the subject. For more extensive discussions, the reader may consult <i>History of the Warfare between Science and Theology</i>, by

Andrew D. White and <i>History of the Inquisition</i> by J. Henry Lea and other works.</p> <p> <blockquote> <center> <font face=ariel,helvetica><b>Lydia Gilbert's Conviction of Witchcraft </b></font></center> <p> The dismal roll of witch hangings in Connecticut begins with that of Alse Young who was hanged May 26, 1647. No witches were ever burned in New England. Mary Johnson of Wethersfield went the same way in 1648, and on March 6, 1651/2, John Carrington and his wife Joan were convicted., There is a record showing that both were executed. The fifth victim was Lydia, wife of Thomas Gilbert of Windsor. We shall give as full an account as possible of her case.</p> <p> Who Lydia Gilbert's accusers were is unknown. Whether ignorant gossip or private enmities brought this ghastly charge upon her, it is impossible to say. That the charge of procuring the death of Henry Stiles could be brought against her seems incredible, when everyone of mature age in Windsor must have known that Henry Stiles met his death by the carelessness of Thomas Allyn, three years before. But this charge was brought against her. She was charged with other witchcrafts besides this, and it may be that she was one of those unfortunate women to whom suspicion of witchcraft clung, for reasons which cannot now be stated. The evidence upon which Lydia was convicted, and the names of the witnesses against her, are unknown. The juror's oath, the names of the jury and the names of the magistrates who heard the case are on record, as well as the indictment and the verdict. Six of the magistrates and jurymen were residents of Windsor, five of Hartford, and the rest belonged to Wethersfield. The Court considered the case in a special session beginning November 28, 1654. The jury brought in the indictment and the records seem to show that they brought in the verdict as well. These two functions of a jury are separate in our time, but in 1654 it was not so. This seems repugnant to our ideas of justice. We should like to hope that the Court proceeded after the ancient English manner, receiving the indictment from the jury, hearing the evidence and deciding in accord therewith.</p> <p align=justify> <font face=ariel,helvetica>The Juror's Oath</font><br> <i>You do sware by the Ever living god that you will diligently enquire & faithfully present to this Court what soe Ever you know to bee a Breach of any Established Law of this Jurisdictyon so far as may conduce to the glory of god and the good of the commonwealth as allso what Oreginall offences you shall Judge meete to be presented, as you expect helpe from god in Jesus Christ.</i></p> <p align=justify> <font face=ariel,helvetica>The Indictment</font><br> <i>Lydea Gilburt thou art here indited by that name of Lydea Gilburt that not having the feare of god before thy Eyes thou hast of late years or still

An accusation or even the suspicion of witchcraft was so deadly a thing that persons involved fled from the Colony in dread haste if possible. Ten years later, Katherine Harrison of Wethersfield was convicted by a jury, but public opinion had so far changed that the ministers were called in to advise, and although their advice was for technicalities only, the magistrates were divided in opinion and after a year's imprisonment Mrs. Harrison was allowed to go to Westchester in New York jurisdiction. There is no evidence that there was any intervention in behalf of Mrs. Gilbert. The governor of the Colony did not have the power of reprieve or pardon at this time. An appeal to the General Court was possible, but there is no record of such an appeal in this or in any of the witchcraft cases. An appeal to Parliament would have been beyond the means of the defendant, and impossible to obtain on other grounds. England had seen more than seventy executions in one county in the space of one year under the law of 1603. It is doubtful if Lydia Gilbert escaped. She may have suffered the penalty either in the jail yard at Hartford or more probably on the lot at the corner of Albany Avenue and Vine Street in Hartford, where the public gallows is known to have stood a little later. Perhaps the huge, ancient elm tree whose trunk and roots were removed about 1913, when in its vigor, witnessed the sad scene. It is incorrect to say, as does George L. Clark in his <i>History of Connecticut</i>, that the witches were hanged on the rocky ridge where Trinity College now stands. The ridge, however, was a place of execution during the Revolutionary period.</font> <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Brainard, Homer Worthing; Gilbert, Harold Simeon; and Torrey, Clarence Almon, <i>The Gilbert Family&#151;Descendants of Thomas Gilbert, 1582(?)&#150;1659 of Mt.

Nothing has been found of Thomas Wells before his marriage. His father was still living in February 1636/7 as he was included as a beneficiary of Thomas's will; however his name was not given and no likely candidate has been found in searches of the burial and probate records of Evesham.</p> <p> The identity of Frances Albret/Albright's parents or her residence before marriage has not been found, but she had brothers named <pix Albright, John> and <pix Albright, Richard>. Richard lived at Alderminster, Worcestershire (now Warwickshire); his marriage to <pix Kelbie, Ann> on June 7, 1631, is recorded there. Two children of this marriage were christened there, and Richard died there (inventory, March 6, 1638/3). Richard left bequests in his estate to his three children, and his "brothers" John Albright and Griffen Low. Richard and several of these same individuals were also named in the will of Thomas Wells. Alderminster is located about 10 miles east of Evesham. <p> Nearly all of the information about Thomas Wells comes from his will, dated "February 9, 1637" [originally thought to have been 1637/8 but probably 1636/7], in which he nominated his wife as executrix without giving her name. It is certain that this is the same Thomas Wells who married Frances Albret/Albright because he left bequests in his will to his brothers[-in-law], John Albright and Richard Albright.</p> <p> In 1636 Thomas was a resident of Evesham, owned his house, and was a weaver. He apparently raised hogs with the help of a laborer, for in his will he bequeathed "to my man <pix Whitell, Charles> a shire hog worth eight shillings and two hatchets which he doth work with." Thomas left bequests to each of his living children (his daughter Sarah had already died): eldest son Thomas, daughter Mary, and son John. He even left a contingency bequest "if my wife be with child." The christening of three children (Mary, Sarah, and John), and the burial of daughter Sarah, are recorded in the records and/or transcripts of the two parishes of Evesham: All Saints and St. Lawerence. The churches for these two parishes are located immediately adjacent to each other in the center of Evesham.<ul> <li>15 Jul 1630 - Mary d/o Thomas Wels, christened, St. Lawrence (transcript) <li>10 Feb 1632/3 - Sara d/o Tho.

<li>26 Jun 1636 - Sarah d/o Thomas Wells [Wills?], buried, All Saints</ul></p> <p> In addition to the bequests already mentioned, Thomas Wells left two shillings to each of the following individuals (some of whose family relationship, if any, has not been determined): <pix Clifford, Joseph> and John Welles, godsons; John Albright and <pix Albright, Catherine>, children of Richard Albright; <pix Albright, Ann> and <pix Tege, Jone>, daughters of John Albright; <pix Loe, John> and <pix Loe, Sara>, children of <pix Loe, Griffen> (Richard called him brother[-in-law] Low); <pix Pathit, Joel>; and <pix Orduay, Sara>. <pix Orduay, Edward>, <pix Lampit, William> and <pix Hardy, Thomas> were witnesses to the will.</p> <p> On February 13, 1636/37, a Thomas Wells was buried in the parish of All Saints. Initially it was thought this burial date seemed to indicate that this individual could not have been the Thomas Wells who wrote his will February 9, 1637/8, his father (name unknown), or his son, since all were still living at this "later" date. Further checking of the will has shown that it was a nuncupative will and had no probate date attached to it. The date on the front of the will is merely "1637". There is no probate act book for this period and the index in which it appears, apparently written in the 1700s, lists the will under 1637 with no other indication of whether it was 1636/7 or 1637/8.</p> <p> No further listing of any of these Wells has been found in Evesham records. Efforts to equate the widow Frances Wells's family in England with the one in New England yielded only circumstantial evidence to support the contention until the inventory of Richard Albright's estate was located in which are named "Thomas Coalman's children". Among other things, this shows that Frances (Albright) Wells married Thomas Coalman before March, 1638/9 (date of the inventory of her brother's estate), or about two years after the death of her husband Thomas Wells and not in Connecticut as had previously been presumed.</p> <p> Additional research by Douglas Richardson published in "The New England Historical and Genealogical Register" Vol. CXLVI, January 1992, also revealed that in "Aspinwall's Notarial Records" (a volume relating to the early history of Boston) a reference dated October 3, 1646, showed that

Thomas Coleman gave a power of attorney "...unto Captain <pix Harding, Robert> of Boston 'to aske &c all writeinges touching his house in Esstum [<i>sic</i>, surely Evesham] in the County of Worcestershire w<sup>ch</sup> are in the hands of John Albright or any other, & to said house do lett or sell & make seale & Deliver deeds or writeings of the same, & to receive the rent for the time past due; also to receive the Remainder of a Legacie in the hands of <pix Norton, John> of Cotherstock Esqr granted by the will of John Coleman of Cotherstock." This would seem to prove conclusively that the wife of Thomas Wells of Evesham was indeed Frances Albright.</p> <p> Many of the genealogies of this family identify the wife of "Hugh" to have been Frances Belcher. Yet, no proof has been offered to properly link the name Belcher with Frances Coleman except that it was the name of a man married by one of her granddaughters. Many attempts to detail the Belcher line have been made, but never has one proven that anyone by this name ever married a Wells in the proper period.</p> <p> The will of Frances Coleman appears to prove (circumstantially again) that the Deborah (or sometimes Deboro) mentioned in the will was indeed <pix Coleman, Deborah> as she is the only child who is not identified by last name in the will. Each of the Wells children is mentioned specifically as "Wells" on each occurrence. Deborah appears several times only by her first name clearly indicating that there would be no confusion to the reader that the child was Deborah Coleman not Wells. Obviously this does not prove that she was a natural daughter of Frances, as she could possibly have been a very young child by Coleman's first wife whom Frances raised and felt was her child more so than the other Coleman children. There is no record of the birth of a Deborah to Thomas and Frances Coleman.</p> <hr> <p> This web page originally read a follows. However, it appears that virtually all of it was wrong, including the existence of Hugh Welles/Wells. <ix Welles, Hugh><ix Wells, Hugh>A very convincing description of the parents of these children is given in a <a href=http://www.rootsweb.com/~wellsfam/genealgy/fam00002/n0000002.html

Served in the Pequot War. Indian Interpreter (Marshall), Conn. Col., Apr., 1638 (dismissed Apr., 1646), Jan., 1649; Deputy (Hartford) to Conn. Leg., May, 1651; Judge (Stonington town), Oct., 1664, May, 1665.</blockquote></p> <p> From <i>History of the Town of Stonington, ...</i>, pages 576&#150;578, is taken:<blockquote> THOMAS STANTON, who became distinguished among the first planters of Stonington, Conn., was in early manhood in England designed and educated for a cadet, but, not liking the profession of arms, and taking a deep interest in the religious principles of the migrating Puritans, lie left his native land,

embarking on board of the good ship "Bonaventure," in 1635, and landed in Virginia, but left there almost immediately for Boston, mingling with the natives on the way, and rapidly acquired a knowledge of their language and customs. On arrival in Boston he was recognized by Winthrop and his associates as a valuable man, worthy of the most unlimited confidence, for the very next year he was selected by the Boston authorities to accompany Mr. Fenwick and Hugh Peters as interpreter on a mission to Saybrook, Conn., to hold a conference with the Pequot Indians relative to the murder of Capt. Stone and Newton. After the close of the conference Mr. Stanton went up to Hartford, and there fixed his permanent abode in 1637. Mr. Stanton's accurate knowledge of the language and character of the Indians soon gave him prominence in the new settlements of Connecticut, for the very first year that he came to Hartford, the General Court gave him ten pounds for the service he had already done for the country, and declared that he should be a public officer, to attend the court upon all occasions, either general or particular, at the meetings of the magistrates, to interpret between them and the Indians, at a salary of ten pounds per annum. Mr. Stanton did not always agree with the policy of Capt. Mason and the court relative to the treatment of the Indians, and drew upon himself their displeasure; but being a man accustomed to speak his own mind and act upon his own convictions, maintained his position, though they discontinued his salary for two years, alleging long absence as the cause, and appointed Mr. Gilbert to take his place, but in 1648 they restored him to the place with its compensation. He became the intimate and especial friend of Gov. Winthrop of Connecticut, acting as his interpreter in all of his intercourse with the Indians. It was while thus employed, in an interview with Ninigret in the Narragansett country that Mr. Stanton became acquainted with the Pawcatuck Valley, and selected it for his future residence. He was the first white man who joined Mr. William Chesebrough in his new settlement. He petitioned the General Court of Connecticut for liberty to erect a trading house there, which

was granted in February, 1650. In the spring following he came to Pawcatuck and erected his trading house on the west bank of Pawcatuck river, in Stonington, in 1651, near a place ever since known as Pawcatuck Rock, for the reason that the deep water channel in the river touched the east side of said rock, where vessels trading with him could easily receive and discharge their cargoes without any expense for the erection of a wharf. Mr. Stanton did not remove his family to Pawcatuck in Stonington until 1657, where he had previously erected a dwelling house. The precise site of this house cannot now be ascertained, but no doubt it was conveniently near his trading house on Pawcatuck River. The object of building the trading house was to open trade with the coasting vessels which were cruising along our New England shores, gathering furs from the Indians and purchasing the surplus products of the planters, and selling the same either in Boston or in the West Indies. After the articles of confederation between the New England colonies had been established in 1643, among all of the distinguished interpreters of New England, Mr. Stanton was selected as interpreter general, to be consulted and relied upon in all emergencies. In this capacity and in their behalf he acted as interpreter, especially between the ministers employed by the Commissioners of the United Colonies, acting as agents of the London Missionary Society, and the Indians, to whom they preached. He also aided the Rev. Abraham Pierson in the translation of his catechism into the Indian tongue, certifying to the same in his official capacity. After Mr. Stanton became an inhabitant of Pawcatuck in Stonington he took an active part in town affairs, he became prominent, and was elected to almost every position of public trust in the new settlement. In 1658, when Pawcatuck was included in the town of Southertown, under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts, he was appointed selectman and magistrate. After Pawcatuck was set off to the Connecticut Colony by the charter of 1662, Mr. Stanton was appointed magistrate and commissioner, and re-appointed every year up to the time of his death. He was elected deputy or representative to the General Court of Connecticut in 1666 and re-elected every year up to 1675.

</p> <p> When courts were first established in New London County in 1666, Major Mason, Thomas Stanton and Lieut. Pratt of Saybrook, were appointed judges. Thus it appears that Mr. Stanton took a prominent part in town, county and State affairs from 1636, when he acted as interpreter at Saybrook, until near the close of his life. His name is connected with the leading measures of the colony, and with almost every Indian transaction on record. In 1670, Uncas, the Mohegan sachem, went from Mohegan to Pawcatuck for Mr. Stanton to write his will, taking with him a train of his noblest warriors to witness the same, giving to the occasion all the pomp and pageantry of savage royalty.

On March 10, 1614, the record of deeds shows that he bought 35 acres of freehold land consisting of garden, meadow, and pasture, for which he paid &pound;41.</p> <p> Hatfield Broad Oak is located about 25 miles north of London. It was originally known as Hatfield Regis, or Kings' Hatfield, to distinguish it from several other Hatfields in the kingdom, and because the manor was owned by the Kings of England. It is the supposed burial place of Harold, the last of the Saxon Kings.</p> <p> In the will of John Warner made on July 16, 1614, a few months after the purchase of the land, he calls himself a yeoman, that is, one who owns and works his own land. Therefore, he was of the "middle class"&#151;not a tenant farmer and not a landlord. This sort of land usually consisted of several

detached pieces; one for a homestead, another for pasture, and others for the cultivation of crops.</p> <p> The children mentioned above are mentioned in the will of John Warner, along with four grandchildren. The will of Mary, his wife, made May 12, 1627, 13 years later, lists 19 grandchildren. These two wills are given in <i>The Descendants of Andrew Warner</i>.

Gardiner was had been engaged by the proprietors of the Connecticut Patent, issued by Charles II to Lord Say and Seal, Lord Brooke and others, who were granted a large tract of territory on the banks of the Connecticut River, to erect a fortification at its mouth. Gardiner embarked at London in the 'Bachilor', of 25 tons, on August 11, 1635, with his wife, female servant and eleven male passengers. After a long and tempestuous voyage, arrived at Boston on the 28th of November. Gov. Winthrop, however, told that Gardiner sailed in a 'Norsey

Barque', (a fishing vessel of the coast of Norway), on July 10, 1635. It is supposed that Thomas Hurlbut was one of the eleven passengers, but who his parents were or where he was born, we have yet to learn. Yet we may be pretty confident that his birth occurred as early as the year 1610. (the Hurlbut Genealogy speculates that he was a native of Scotland).</p> <p align=justify> Thomas, while at Saybrook, was in an encounter with the Pequot Indians in 1637, and was wounded by an arrow. This appears in a letter of Lion Gardiner, written in June of 1660, some 23 years after the skirmish with the Indians, addressed to Robert Chapman and Thomas Hurlbut, detailing incidents regarding the Pequot War. Capt. Gardiner said that Robert Chapman, Thomas Hurlbut and Major Mason urged him to write the letter, 'and having rummaged and found some old papers then written, it was a great help to my memory.' The document laid in manuscript until 1833 (173 years) when it was printed in Vol 3, 3rd Ser. of the Mass. Historical Society Coll. The following is an extract.</p> <blockquote> <p align=justify> In the 22d of February, I went out with ten Men and three Dogs Half a Mile from the House (Fort), to burn the weeds, Leaves and Reeds upon the Neck of the Land, because we had felled twenty trees, which we were to roll to the Waterside to bring home, every Man carrying a Length of Match with rimstone-matches with him to kindle the Fire withal. But when we came to the small of the Neck, the Weeds burning, I have before this set two Sentinels on the small of the Neck, I called to the Men that were burning the the Reeds to come away, but they would not until they had burnt up the rest of their Matches. Presently there starts up four Indians out of the fiery Reeds, but they ran away, I called too the rest of our Men to come away out of the Marsh. Then Robert Chapman and Thomas Hurlbut, being Sentinels, called to me, saying there came a Number of Indians out of the other side of the Marsh. Then I went to stop them, that they should not get to the Woodland; but Thomas Hurlbut cried out to me that some of the Men did not follow me, for Thomas Rumble and Arthur Branch threw down their two Guns and ran away; then the Indians shot two of them that were in the Reeds, and sought to get between us and Home, but durst not come before us, but kept us in a Half moon, we retreating and exchanging many a Shot, so that Thomas Hurlbut was shot almost through the Thigh, John Spencer in the back into his Kidneys, myself into the Thigh, two more shot dead. But in our Retreat, I kept Hurlbut and Spencer still before us, we defending ourselves with our naked Swords, or else they had taken us all alive, so that the two sore wounded Men, by our slow Retreat, got home with their Guns, when our two sound Men ran away and left their Guns behind them.' The HULBERT FAMILY Genealogy, compiled by Dorothy Russ Taylor, adds this; 'I resolved to let them draw lots which of them should be hanged (for the articles did hang up in the hall for all to read), and they (Rumble and Branch) knew they had been

published. But at the intercession of old Mr. Mitchell, Mr.Higgison and Mr.Pell, I did forbear.</p></blockquote> <p align=justify> Gardiner does not mention his estimate of the number of the assailants, but Underwood, in his History, say there were 'a hundred or more.'</p> <p align=justify> Thomas Hurlbut was by trade a blacksmith, and after the war with the Pequots, he located and established himself in business at Wethersfield, Ct., and was one of the early settlers, as well as the first blacksmith. A single extract from the Colonial Records would seem to indicate that he was a good workman and charged a good price for his work: 'March 2, 1642. Tho: Hurlbut for exacting and incouridgeing others to take excessiue Rats for Worke and Ware is adiudged to pay to the Country 40s.' But this fine appears to have been 'respited' February 5, 1643. 'Tho: Hurlbut his ffyne is respited vppon Peter Bassakers tryall to make nayles wth lesse losse and at as cheape a Rate, then he is to duble the ffyne, otherwise to be quit.'</p> <p align=justify> He seems to have been a man of good standing in the community. He was Clerk of the 'Train Band' in 1640, Deputy to the General Court, Grand Juror and also Constable in 1644. It appears on the records that he received various tracts of land in several divisions of the Town, which were recorded together in 1647. In 1660, the Town of Wethersfield granted Thomas Hurlbut Lot 39, one of the 'four score acre lots' (in Naubuc, east side of the river), which he afterward sold to Thomas Hollister. For his services in the Indian wars, the Assembly voted him a grant of 120 acres of land on October 12, 1671. It is supposed that Thomas died soon after the last date, as no evidence appears that the land was set off to him during his life. In that early day of the Colony, land was plenty and cheap, and no attempt appears to have been made to avail himself of the bounty, nor even by his sons. it was not until 1694, on the petition of John Hurlbut Jr., of middletown, a grandson of the settler and soldier, that it was set off.</p> <p align=justify> The 'Particular Court' record also shows another side of our emigrant forefather; ' 1645, Samuel Hale for his mysdemeanor by excesse in drinkeing is ffyned twenty nobles. 'Tho: Hurlbut for the like is ffyned 4. 'Elias Trotte for accompaning the and drawing wyne wthout liberty is ffyned 40 'Will Crosse for houcing wyne sould in his howse wthout lycence is ffyned 40.' I would guess it paid for Thomas to have been the Constable the year before.</p> <p align=justify> It is told, and the tradition is not an unreasonable to credit, that the house in Wethersfield, where Miss Harriet Mitchell resided in 1888, stands upon the site of the dwelling of the first Hurlbut who lived in the settlement.(She was the sixth generation from Thomas) That house, as tradition gives, had particular attractions for the Indians, whether with the

purpose to inspect the architecture of the edifice, or to get a view of the owner, for he had been an Indian fighter formerly, it cannot be said. But often, when in the village, they were to be seen looking curiously in at the windows.</blockquote> <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Stiles, Henry R., <i>History of Ancient Wethersfield, Connecticut</i>, The Grafton Press, New York, 1904 <li>Index to the Colonial American Genealogical Library, LDS <li>Hulbert, Henry Carlton, <i>The Hulbert Family 1305 &#151; With the ancestry of Walter Hubbard, Thomas Hulbert, William Hulbert and their connection with early emigrants to The New World</i></ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 1041 +nm _____, Sarah +sx f +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 1046 +nm Dickerson, Thomas +sx m +bd in&#151;say&#151;1620 +spouse _____, _____ +childcount An unknown number of children were born, but included: +child #523 +child Dickerson, Elizabeth She married <pix Knapp, Roger>.<ix Knapp, Elizabeth> They had a daughter, Mary, who mentioned Abigail as her "aunt Casle" in her will 1711. +text <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Jacobus, Donald Lines, <i>History and Genealogy of the Families of Old Fairfield (reprinted with corrections)</i>, Baltimore, Genealogical Publishing Co., 1991 (1930); vol. 1, p. 138, 200.</ul> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++ +id 1052 +nm John Hawkes +sx m +bd in&#151;say&#151;1607 +bp Hingham, Norfolk, England +dd 30 Jun 1662 +dp Hadley, Hampshire, Massachusetts +spouse #1053 +child #526 +child Hawks, Nathaniel +sx m +bd before February 16, 1645 +bp Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut +dd after 1645 +dp Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut

He was at Watertown [Massachusetts] in 1637, & was, says Savage, "one of the lessers of the fishing grounds of that place." He was at Fairfield in 1648, where Feb. 2, 1648/9 he made an agreement with the town to erect a grist-mill on the stream running into the west side of Uncoway River, which he sold in 1653 to Samuel Morehouse. His home-lot was bounded n.w. with Nathan Gold's pasture lot, n.e. the Unocoway mill-creek at high watermark, s.e. highway, &amp; s.w. with his own land. He removed after selling the mill, to Pequonnock & purchased, the house & home-lot of Thomas Wheeler jr. He was made a freeman 10 Oct. 1669 and was one of the dividend land holders of the town.

Geo. Phippen of Truro in said county. It was taken from page 3 of <i>Fitzpen or Phippen and Allied Families</i>. It shows that the transition from Fitzpen to Phippen went thru several generations where the family used both names. It also shows that even in the 1600s, the name was "Fitzpen", not "Fitz Pen".</p> <p> The name "Phippen" is patronymic, and is a corruption of Fitz-pen or Fils-pen (Fitz or Fils from the Latin <i>Filius</i> meaning son), being a Norman prefix to an old British name. Camden says Pen, in British, signifies the head or top of anything, examples: the Pennine Alps and the Apennines, and Pennon's Hill in Devonshire. There is an old couplet still common [late 1800s] in Cornwall: <center><i>By Tre, Ros, Pol, Lan, Caer, and Pen<br> You may know the most of Cornish men.</i></center></p> <p> The name "Pen" or "Penne" occurs frequently in early English records, such as the <i>Hundred Rolls</i>, the <i>Patent Rolls</i>, the <i>Fine Rolls</i>, etc., extending back from the Crusades even to the time of the Conquest; and is found in the <i>Roll of Battel Abbey</i> (Sussex). <p> As is typical of the times, the spelling of "Jorden" appears in several variations: "Jordon" and "Jordaine". In the source of this entry, the "Jorden" spelling is applied to Cicelie, while all of her male forebearers have "Jordon".

From <i>A Genealogy of Samuel Hoyt and Betsey Webb, Stamford, Connecticut</i> is taken: <blockquote> In 1628 Simon Hoyt accompanied by his brother-in-law, Nicholas Stowers, and the Spragues who were also from Upway in Dorset, came to America, in the ship <i>Abigail</i> with Gov. Endicott arriving at Salem, Massachusetts, September 6, 1628. In 1629 he went to Charlestown [Massachusetts Bay Colony].</p> <p> In 1630 he was in Dorchester, his name appearing in the records as Simon Hoit. In 1635 he was at Scituate where he and his wife, Susanna, joined the church.</p> <p> In 1639 he went to Windsor, Connecticut, where he had fourscore acres of land granted him by the plantation, February 28, 1640. A house lot was granted him in Fairfield, March, 1649, and his name appears in the list of pioneers of Stamford.</p> <p> In the Stamford Town records there is on file an interesting document relating to the distribution of his estate.

However, when the calendar system was changed from Julian to Gregorian in 1752 in England and the English colonies in America, two things happened to cause him to change his birthday to the February 22, 1732, that we know today. First, 11 days (September 3 thru 13) were removed to correct the accumulated error. Second, New Year's Day was changed from March 25 to January 1.

(Note that March 25 is exactly 9 months before December 25; therefore, it was the presumed date of the conception of Jesus.) Some people who lived during September, 1752, left their dates of birth unchanged while others, like Washington, changed them so that they would be the correct number of days old by a simple calendar calculation. <br clear=all><hr>Sources:<ul> <li>Lewis, James R., <i>The Ancestry of Floyd Davis Lewis</i>, 1978.

He is the fourth of six children&#151;three sons and three daughters&#151;born to Edla [Ella] and Nancy (Harman [Harmon]) Judson, and of these children there are four still living, vis: Caroline, widow of Rufus Dibble and <ix Dibble, Caroline> <ix Dibble, Rufus> a resident of Trowbridge Township, Allegan county; Emeline, wife of Luther Clark, who was a soldier in the Civil War, <ix Clark, Luther> <ix Clark, Emeline> and is now a farmer at Jamestown, Ottawa county; Washington, the subject of this sketch, and Lewis, a married farmer of Byron township... <ix Judson, Lewis> <p> <table align=right width=338 border=1>

There was but one schoolhouse in Byron township, and not a church, during his boyhood days, and at his birth there were not more than thirty families here. Byron Center was a quagmire, and where the Union depot now stands in Grand Rapids was a swamp, not worth more than $1 per acre. But that spot is now a great network of railroads running in all directions, carrying thousands of people each week and conveying millions of dollars' worth of the resources of Kent county to the uttermost parts of the civilized world. Washington can remember when he was first permitted to go with his father, with ox-team, to the then Indian trading-post&#151;which is now a city of nearly 100,000 inhabitants. Canal and Monroe streets, of the city, known by the pioneers as Grabb's corners and now the chief thoroughfares, were unpaved and filled with mud, with scarcely a brick building on either street, and not one of the great factories of today was even dreamed of, nor was Campau square even given a thought. A little knoll, east of the site of the present Union depot, known as Whisky hill, has disappeared as if by magic; not a railroad existed in the place, but the Indians lounged around in great numbers, to collect their annuities from the government agent.</p> <p> Mr. Judson, in his early farming days, used the old-fashioned four-fingered cradle and scythe in cutting grain, and the first threshing he ever did was with the primitive flail, the next was by tramping out the grain on the barn-floor with horses, in truly pioneer style.</p> <p> Mr. Judson received his education in the little frame school-house, known as No. 2. The first log school-house No. 1, in the township of Byron, had a row of windows in one end, and the seats were slabs, with pegs for legs; No. 2 was the pride of the township, yet its methods were primitive, and the birchen rod and dunce-block were among its appliances. Some of the early pioneer amusements consisted of taffy-pulling, apple parings, log rolling, etc., and concluded with a dance, such as the Virginia reel, fisher's hornpipe, and so on.</p> <p> Mr. Judson began laboring out at the age of 14 years, at $7 per month, and his earnings he promptly turned over to his father, but at his majority had saved about $200. He became an expert shingle packer and spend about seven years in the shingle and lumber mills of Ottawa county. He was always industrious and active, and willing at all times to undertake any work that would net him an honest dollar.</p>

<p> March 17, 1875, Mr. Judson wedded Miss Mary McKenney, and to this union have been born five children&#151;two sons and three daughters&#151;of whom four are still living, vis: Rose, who has completed the eighth grade in the public schools, with a per centage of 90; she has received instruction in music, and is also a member of the Rebekahs, Leah lodge, No. 171, at Byron Center and holds the office of vice-grand at the present time; Viola has passed the eighth grade, has received instruction in music, and is now the wife of Henry Sadler, of Georgetown, Ottawa county; Mabel[<i>sic</i>] has passed through the same course of instruction, and Homer, now in the eighth grade, also assists his father on the home farm.</p> <p> Mrs. Mary Judson was born in Canada, August 16, 1850, and died in Kent county, Michigan, July 31, 1883. She was a daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth Jane (Norris) McKenney, and was a little girl when brought to Michigan by her parents... She was a model wife and mother, and although her married life was of short duration&#151;but eight years&#151;had always been her husband's faithful counselor and helpmate, and her departure was a sad loss to her husband and children, as well as to her neighbors, with whom she was a universal favorite.</p> <p> Mr. and Mrs. Judson began their matrimonial life on the Judson homestead, which Mr. Judson had purchased with his own earnings. All the improvements hereon he has himself made and has now a most excellent farm, with a clay-loam soil, adapted to such fruit, grain and vegetables as are usual to the latitude...</p> <p> <table border=1 align=right><tr><td> <img src="../jpeg/10acde.jpg" width=250 height=250></tr> <tr><td align=center><font size=-2> The children of Washington and Mary Judson:<br> Rose (and husband, Walter Gilbert)<br> Mable (seated), Ola,<br> and Homer (with wife, Agnes)<br> Young Harry Gilbert looks on.</td> </table> In politics Mr. Judson is democratic in sentiment, although he cast his first presidential vote for Abraham Lincoln. He has held the office of township commissioner three different times, having been the first to be elect to that position, after the law was changed for one man to hold the office instead of three. He has always been a friend of public education, and for 12 years was a school official, and has always had the full confidence of his party and the public at large.</p> <p> Fraternally, he a member of Halcyon lodge, No. 244, I.O.O.F., at Byron Center, and passed all the chairs, and also has acted as delegate to the grand lodge.</p> <p> Mr Judson has been very public-spirited and liberal in promoting the advancement of Byron township, and has aided financially in
