                                              GRIFFITH RECORD

1st Generation
Thomas Grifficts - born Jan 28, 1830 in South Wales, Great Britain
          or ths - died May 4, 1891, buried in Oil City, PA
Elizabeth Jones - born May 10, 1832 in North Wales, Great Britain
                  died May 10, 1891, buried in Oil City, PA

                   Both were brought to America when they were children. They met and married in Pennsylvania.
          Grifficts is the Welsh spelling of the name Griffiths. On the tombstone the name is spelled "Griffiths". They
          are buried in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, off Innis Street in Oil City, PA.

                   Elizabeth was from Landvelah Triggeatial Amleith (spelling?), North Wales. She was on her way to
          visit Wales on a ship of White Star Line, Celtic when it was involved with a collision with the ship Brittania
          or Brittanic. It was a month before anyone heard from her. Elizabeth Nixon remembered having a book
          written about the accident but was unable to find it or remember the title. She died before sending Helen
          Griffith any more information about the family.

          U. S. Census of 1860 under Porter Township, Clarion County, PA, listed what appears to be our Griffith
          family, with slight inconsistencies of ages and spelling.

                          Owned $325 worth of personal property.

      U. S. census of 1880 under Salem, Clarion County, Pennsylvania listed our Griffith family. There were
     also several other families in Clarion County who listed members born in Wales. One, Samuel Griffith, who
     was boarding or living with a family of Taylors in Beaver Township was called a cousin. There were other
     Taylor families on the same page.

Excerpts of letters to Helen Loomis Griffith from Elizabeth Griffith Nixon in 1979:
                                           Feb., 19, 1979
                  ...I haven't forgotten you are working on the descendants of Grandpa Griffith. I was going
       through 40 years of pictures when Merle took sick ...I have births and deaths of all the Griffith
       children, pictures of all but the ones that died young. Have a good picture of my dad's mother &
       father taken day they was married, one several years later. almost know place of birth in Wales.
       While you have access to a library, Grandma Griffith (Elizabeth) was on her way to Wales to visit her
       people. She was born in North Wales May 10, 1832. She was 51 years old when accident happened.
       The ships names Celtic and Lusitania had an accident she didn't make it to Wales, it was a month
       before they had word from her whether she was all right or not. I know there is a book about this for
       we had one when I was home. My mother was sick 17 years before she passed away, was only 49
       years old. I was married several years before she died. She got to see our oldest daughter, there was
       so many people in & out taking care of her. I looked for the book after she died, the book along with
       a lot of things was missing. I think she left from New York. If you find a book of it buy me one & I
       will pay you. On these papers I have this is the way Griffith was spelled. Thomas and Elizabeth
       Grifficts. On the tomb in Oil City its spelled Griffith. I was named after my Grandma Griffith and
       the Bell after Grandma Hoskinson. ...

                                                Feb. 23, 1979
                       I have hunted for 2 1/2 years for this information, have been cleaning drawers while
       waiting for our 14 in of snow to leave. This was on a cardboard, had fallen down back of the drawer.

                        Elizabeth Jones (Griffith)
                        born Landv(?)elah Treygeatial Amleith, North Wales

                Left on White Star Line from New York. Accident Celtic run into Brittanic Ship. She didn't
               get home for 30 days, they thought she had drowned.

        Helen Loomis Griffith put in a request at the St. John Parish Library in an attempt to find more about the
       ship collision, to no avail. In April 1988, Debbie Griffith Southerland was able to find records of the New
       York Times for the era. Together they searched these files, with the following result:

       The articles appeared from the Dec. 29, 1883 issue through the issue of Jan. 16, 1884. The ship Celtic was
       first reported overdue, then reports began coming in from other ships that her main shaft was broken and that
       she was proceeding under sail. There was considerable criticism because she did not return to New York
       City, as the damage occurred shortly after getting under way. It was said that the reason for this decision was
       economic - the ship owners did not want to lose the business. Eventually four of the Salon passengers and the
       mail were taken onto another ship, the Argosy. Once the Celtic neared land she was taken in tow by the
       Britannic and all reached Queenstown safely.

       So there was no collision, no loss of life, and we were unable to find a list of the passengers, other than the four
       businessmen who transferred to the Argosy.

1879 HISTORY OF VENANGO COUNTY contains the following brief write- up, pp. 649:

       William Crispen first saw the light of day on the shore of the Susquehanna, Dec. 4th 1818. He received a good
       education in the common schools. At an Early date in his life he moved to Centre Co., PA with his parents,
       where he remained about 12 years, when he came to Venango. He married Sarah McClain (sic), of Clarion
       County. He is the owner of a very fine farm and pleasant home in Sugarcreek Township.

William and his wife, Sarah, are buried at the Bethel Methodist Church in Oakland Township where their stones read:

       William Crispen, died March 29, 1890, aged 71 years, 3 months, 25 days

       Sarah, his wife, born Feb. 6, 1821 (no date of death given)
Note: Other sources indicate she was buried in Ohio.

               William Crispen died intestate and letters of administration for his estate were granted to his son,
        George Chrispen, of Oil City, after the widow, Sarah, renounced the right to administer. (George consistently
        used the spelling Chrispen, although his brothers and sisters retained the original spelling.) In a petition
        recorded in Venango County Orphans Court Docket 11, pp. 425, dated Jan 7, 1892, George Chrispen states
        that William Crispen died in March 1890, leaving to survive him a widow, Sarah, and the following children:

               Sarah Whitman, formerly Crispen
               Elizabeth Wilt, formerly Crispen
               George Chrispen
               William Crispen, Jr.
               Edward Crispen
               E. M. Crispen
               O. F. Crispen

       Also surviving were Willis Weikal, minor child of Phoebe Weikal, deceased, and David Crispen, minor child of
       David C. Crispen, deceased. The petition asks the court's permission to sell a certain property to pay debts
       against the estate. The main farm was sheriffed to pay debts against the estate. It was described as 100 acres in
       Sugarcreek Twp. containing a two story frame house, large bank barn and out buildings, orchard, good well of
       water and about 70 acres cleared. (Venango County Deed Book 200, pp. 332)

 “Why Write a Book on the Strawn Family”

Curt Frederick Strawn-Miller is the 6th great grandson of Lancelot Strawn. He was born in Westchester County, New
York on the 30th of November 1947 in United Hospital in Port Chester. He was baptized on the 4th of April 1948 (the
exact same day as his wife Bonnie was baptized in Baltimore, Maryland) at St. Thomas Church in Mamaroneck,
Westchester County, New York. In 1952 Curt’s father Joseph David Strawn, Jr. was divorced from his wife Florence Mary
(Feldt) Strawn. At this time Curt had no further contact with his father even though the divorce decree stated that visitation
was to be granted. Joseph David was residing in Florida and Florence Mary in New York. In 1956 Curt’s mother married
Albert Miller and in October of 1957 Albert Miller made the decision to adopt Curt Frederick Strawn and thus changed his
name to Miller. When Curt and Bonnie (Miller) Strawn-Miller married in 1993, Curt found out quickly that a passion of
Bonnie’s was genealogy. What especially peaked her interest was that Curt and her had the same last name. At the time
when she started questioning Curt about his family, he was not even sure of his father’s real name. Curt’s father (Joseph
David Strawn, Jr.) had died when Curt was only 23 years old and Curt had felt his entire life that his father wanted nothing
to do with him. Even to this day we have only been able to find out bits and pieces from different family members and
only guessing about the true story. When Bonnie started tracking down the Strawn family she had no idea what a rich
family heritage they possessed. Oh, yes and by the way Bonnie and Curt are related!! No, not by blood but by the marriage
of Curt’s Mary Buckman Cooper line who married Lancelot Strawn and Bonnie’s Peregoy line of Baltimore County,
Maryland. Curt’s son Jared Michael Strawn-Miller is the only surviving male that will carry on his direct bloodline of the
Strawn’s from his 4th great grandfather David Strawn (1818-1873). All others of the David line were either daughters or
sons that had no male children or male children that died or did not marry. Curt’s direct line of descent is:

Lancelot, Jacob, Isaiah, Jeremiah, David, Herman, Joseph Sr., Joseph Jr., Curt. At this writing (1996) Curt is using his
adopted name Curt Frederick Strawn-Miller (since his mother and adoptive father are still living) but in the future both
Curt and his son Jared plan on changing their surname back to their rightful family name and thus they will continue to
uphold the heritage of the Strawn family. It is our quest to investigate every Strawn (past and present) in the United States
and Canada, and to input that information into a very narrative manuscript for all future generations, so they will never be
denied access to their Strawn birthright as Curt was for many years.

Generations of Strawns beginning with Lancelot

Copyright © 1996 by Curt and Bonnie Strawn-Miller Permission must be obtained from authors before reproducing.

FIRST GENERATION
1.Lancelot Strawn (Strawhen, Straughan). Born in POSSIBLY, Kincardineshire, Fife Co, Scotland.
        Died, 1720, in Newtown, Middletown Twp, Bucks Co, Pennsylvania.

         Excerpt from a letter of Lily Strawn Painter dated March 24, 1939 relating the origin of Lancelot
         Strawn
        ―My great grandfather, George Strawn’s family, conversed in their home and among their friends and
        neighbors the Holland language only. My grandfather, Enoch Strawn, related this to my father, when he was a
small boy and sat upon his grandfather’s knee, Jacob Strawn II who married Susannah VanBuskirk.‖

         “Enoch asked his grandfather if he had a nice grandpapy when he was a little boy like he had and this is some
         of the conversation that followed:” “In the early part of the sixteen century in Scotland an unknown babe was
         found in a blanket in a pile of straw and was taken and reared by an old bachelor, he naming the babe
         Straughn, because of being found in the straw pile.

         This little highland lad became a trader early in life, and did some bartering in Wales. He Lancelot Straughn
         emigrated from Scotland to Wales before coming to the Colonies of North America. Also he said that after the
         children of Jacob and Christiana had grown up there were lots of hard feelings among them. That the old folk’s
         lives were saddened by their children’s conduct: Isaiah taking up arms to kill and Jacob II marrying Susannah, an
         outsider of the Friends faith and all their girls marrying outsiders also; consequently, my great, great grandfather
         Jacob willed his share of the estate to his baby brother, Enoch, your line down. There were such a devotion
         between the two brothers that I take notice even today that their lines down are more alike. It seems to be more of
         a tie‖......

         Sincerely,
         Lily Strawn Painter

         (Lily was the 4th great granddaughter of Lancelot Strawn, who began her research in 1907 & continued          until
her death in 1988)

Lancelot Straughan, the first American ancestor of the Strawn family of Upper Bucks, is said to have been a native of
Wales. There has been much speculation among the descendants and local historians as to the proper          spelling of his
name. The above form is believed to be the manner in which he himself spelled it. The name        is frequently spelled on
the early records as Strawhen. The will of the widow of Lancelot Straughan is written in the name of Mary
Strawhen, but so far as we can learn none of her children wrote it in that      form and practically all the descendants
have used the name in its present form, Strawn.

         Tradition relates that Lancelot Straughan was a native of Wales and came to this country in search of
         adventure in the wilderness of Pennsylvania during the first decade of the eighteenth century. He married
         Mary (Buckman) Cooper, and died in Middletown Township, Bucks County, early in 1720, letters of
         administration being granted to his widow on June 10, 1720. Thomas Baynes signed her bond with her.         The
inventory was taken 8 4th mo. 1720 by John Wildman and Thomas Thwailes and came to L 34/16/6,               one item of
unusual interest being a desk, so Lancelot Strawhen was undoubtedly literate. This being the        only occasion when his
first name is recorded in contemporary document except for his presence at a      Buckman wedding as witness.

Mary (Buckman) Cooper, the wife of Lancelot Straughan, was born in the Parish of Billinghurst, County of
          Sussex, England, 9 mo. (November) 23, 1680. She came to Pennsylvania with her parents, William and
          Sarah Buckman, in the Ship Welcome, in 1682, with William Penn, the founder. William Buckman died in
Bucks County in 10 mo., 1716, leaving a will dated 2 mo. 4, 1716, which contained the following clause.
                    ―ITEM - I give unto my daughter Mary Strawhen Fifty Shillings current money, to be
          payed 12 months after my decease and to her five children, Ruth, Sarah, William, Henry                 and
John, fifty shillings apiece to be paid to them respectively when they arrive at twenty-                one years of
age.‖

Mary Buckman married in 1706 Henry Cooper of Newtown, Bucks County. He died in 1710 leaving her with five small
children. William, Henry, John, Sarah and Ruth. The family were members of the Society of Friends                   before coming
to America, and the Coopers           were also Friends. Mary Cooper was disowned by the Society                    on her
marriage to Lancelot Straughan and probably never reunited with the Society. Her daughter Sarah                     married first
Joseph Strickland, a Friend, in 1727, and second in 1737 Jonathan Abbott.             The other          daughter Ruth Cooper
married Denes Pursel of Dover, Kent County, Delaware, a son of Thomas Pursell,                  both father and son being
natives of Ireland. Denes Pursel (as he wrote the name) on January 22, 1732,          transferred his interest in a large tract of
land in Kent County, Delaware, to his brother, Daniel Pursell in             exchange for a tract of land owned and occupied
by Daniel in Wrightstown Township, Bucks County. He                later removed to New Jersey and little is known of his
history, but he and his brother Thomas are supposed to be the ancestors of the Pursell family of Upper Bucks. After the
death of her second husband Lancelot            Straughan, Mary Strawhen resided with her daughter Ruth. Her will, dated
June 7, 1738, at Bethlehem,           County of Hunterdon, and Province of New Jersey, was probated September 10, 1740,
and it gives specific        legacies of forty shillings each to her five children by Henry Cooper, and the residue of her
estate to her      son Jacob Strawn, whom she names as her executor. In the year 1848, Lancelot’s great grandson, John
          Straughan, as he spelled the name in his later years, prepared an account of his own life which was shown me
by the late J. Donald Strawn (1888-1966) of Chardon, Ohio, with whom I long collaborated on a Strawn genealogy as
yet unpublished. This John Straughan, born 1776, died in Columbiana County, Ohio,               in 1856, was one of the 18
children of Jacob’s son Daniel. He was about twenty-five when his grandfather died in 1800. In this document John
Straughan made the claim that Lancelot Strawn was a Welcome                  passenger, crossing the Atlantic on the same ship
as his future wife, and this claim has been repeated by            certain descendants. No evidence has been found to support
the claim.

                (Copied from ―The Welcome Claimants Proved, Disproved and Doubtful‖ by George E.
         McCracken and ―Early Friends Families of Upper Bucks‖ by Clarence V Roberts)

         He married Mary Buckman Cooper, daughter of William Buckman Sr. and Sarah, 2 June 1716, in
         Newtown, Bucks Co, Pennsylvania. Born, 23 Nov. 1680, in Billingshurst, Sussex Co, England. Died,
         1740, in Bucks Co, Pennsylvania.

Mary Buckman, third child and second daughter of William Buckman (Edward) by his first wife Sarah ( ), was born
in England, probably in Billingshurst, Sussex, on 23 9 th mo. 1680, and she was baptized by Anglican             rite in
Billinghurst on 13 Jan. 1680/1, which fact may suggest that her mother was not a Friend. With the rest of the family she
came to America on the Welcome in 1682. Tradition among her Strawn descendants                says that she sat on the lap of
William Penn while at sea, and since she was then a child of two, his interest      in her would make this plausible. There
has been handed down in the             Strawn family through ten generations of Strawns, all of whom were named Jacob, a
sea shell which she brought with her as a toy.
          She married, first, on 30 Nov. 1703 under the auspices of Middletown Monthly Meeting but at the house of
          William Twining in Newtown, Henry Cooper or Couper, as the name was often spelled in contemporary
          documents. He had been baptized by Anglican rites in Low Ellington, Yorkshire, on 13 Jan. 1674/5, son of
          William Cooper by a wife who may or may not have been the wife Thomasine, mother of the six younger
          children of William Cooper.
          There was a Richard Strawhen who witnessed the marriage of Joseph Lupton to Mercy Twining at Middletown
          Monthly Meeting on 10 7th mo. 1713, and is thereafter not found. An attempt to find the original of this
          certificate in order to verify the first name has failed. Lancelot Strawhen similarly signed as witness the
09/01/2011                                                                                                Page*16*
                                        GRIFFITH-LOOMIS FAMILY RECORD


        marriage certificate of Mary’s brother William Buckman to Esther Penquite, as 21st name in the left-hand
        column, 27 9th mo. 1716, two months after the condemnation. We hear nothing more of Lancelot until he is dead
        and there are no deeds of record and no will, for he died intestate, administration granted to the Widow in Bucks
        County on 10 June 1720. Thomas Baynes signed her bond with her. The inventory was taken 8 4th mo. 1720 by
        John Wildman and Thomas Thwailes and came to L34/16/6, one item of unusual interest being a desk, so
        Lancelot Strawhen was undoubtedly literate.

         After the death of Lancelot in 1720 Mary and such of her brood as had not flown the nest probably
         removed about 1728 to Kent County, Delaware, where her son-in-law Dennis Pursell owned land, but by 1738
she was in New Jersey for she made her will in Bethlehem Township, Hunterdon County,
         7 Jan. 1738 (1738/9). She names daughters, Ruth and Sarah, sons William Cooper, Henry Cooper, John Cooper
         and Jacob Starwhen (sic) who is named executor. This will was written by an exceptionally poor speller, and it
         was probated in Bucks county on 10 Sept 1740 by the oath of Daniel Ashcraft and on 2 Oct. 1740 by the
         affirmation of Richard Mitchell. The third witness, Robert Hazlet, did not appear. She had survived the making of
         her will by about a year and a half.

          Jacob Strawhen, as he generally spelled his name, or Strawn, as most descendants spell it, was the only child
of Mary Buckman (William, Edward) by her second husband Lancelot Strawhen. He was born,                    probably in
Middletown Township, and in the year 1717, since in 1739 he was old enough to be named his       mother’s executrix. As
his father died in 1720 and his parents were married in 1716, he can not have been     born before 1717 or after 1721.

          Aside from his mother’s will, the earliest record of Jacob is found in a Middletown marriage certificate     dated
22 3rd mo. 1740, when Robert Lucas married Sarah Croasdale of Newtown, daughter of William Croasdale. The name
of Jacob Strawhen is next to the last among the men, but neither his mother, who            was dead by September of that
year, or his wife signed. He probably remained with his mother until her           death and accompanied her, if not to
Kent County, Delaware, at least to Bethlehem Township, Hunterdon County, New Jersey, where she made her will. He
married about 1741, probably in Bethlehem Township,              Christiana Pursell, baptized at the Dutch Church at
Readington, that county, daughter of John Pursell (Thomas) by his wife Henah or Hannah whose maiden name has
not been determined. Thus, Jacob Strawhen became the nephew by marriage of his half sister, Ruth (Cooper) Pursell,
since John Pursell, her     father, was an older brother of Ruth’s husband Dennis.

          Christiana had been named for her paternal grandmother, Christiana Van Woggelom, who in Dutch
          records was regularly called Stintje Jan., that is in English, ―little Christina, daughter of John.‖ by coincidence
this Stintje Jan. was daughter of another     Christiana Pursell, being daughter of a John, could also be called Stintje
Jan. by the Dutch and, at any rate, was called Stintje. To the English ears at Richland         Meeting, this sounded like
―Staunchy,‖ and she was so recorded as such for many years. As a result,              some descendants have supposed that she
was so called from staunchness of build or character—she did survive the birth of twelve children. In any case, Jacob and

                                           GRIFFITH-LOOMIS FAMILY RECORD


Stintje began having children while living in      New Jersey, since the births of the first three children are not found
recorded at Richland Meeting,      Quakertown, Pa.

          If this supposition is correct, the move to Haycock Township, which lies east of Richland Manor and
          Township, and now the Borough of Quakertown, took place between the spring of 1748 and the fall of
          1749. It would appear that the family must have lived first on rented property. There is an unrecorded deed dated
6 May 1752 whereby Joseph              Tomlinson of Makefield, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, yeoman, sold to Jacob
Strawhen            of Haycock Township, aforesaid county, for a consideration of five shillings (doubtless a fictitious sum
used to conceal the real price), a certain Messuage, plantation and Tract of Land in Haycock           Township, containing
255 acres and 98 perches, deed witnessed by Samuel Twining and Tho: Chapman.
          According to Richland Monthly Meeting’s Men’s Minutes Jacob Strawhen and Christiana his wife (and son,
John) requested to be received into religious fellowship on June 15 th, 1769. In the same minutes dated           October 19th,
1769 it is said, ―Friends are of the opinion that it may be best to leave the three eldest of Jacob Strawhens children (to
wit) William, Daniel and Mary, until they come to make application for                themselves and that all the younger ones
to be taken under the care of Friends with their parents‖.

           In 1779 Jacob Strawhen lived in Haycock Township on 350 acres, had 4 horses and 6 head of cattle. In
           1781, 360 acres, 3 horses and 7 cattle. In 1782, 360 acres, 2 horses and 7 cattle. In 1784, 360 acres, 5
           horses, 5 cattle and had 5 dwellings with 5 outhouses, which were inhabited by 25 whites. In 1783 he was taxed
4 pound 14 shilling           and 6 pence. In the year 1784 Jacob Strawhen erected a fine stone house near the village
called Strawntown about three miles east of Quakertown. The house remained in possession of                Jacob to his death in
1800 and then became the home of his youngest son Enoch until it was sold after his               death in 1849. The house has
been owned in late years by Mrs. Natalie Platoff Nichols and her sister, Mrs.           Ahlum, who operate the property as a
farm, having inherited it from their father, Col. Platoff, USA As this is being written (1970), there are reports that the
property may be condemned in order to build a highway                 and how long this beautiful building will be allowed to
remain standing is therefore doubtful. The entire          original wing attached to the which was not long ago destroyed by
fire. In the neighborhood of Strawntown           are a number of houses on the northwest. The large barn nearby is a new one,
replacing one built in 1809             similar stone houses, some of which were occupied by sons of Jacob Strawhen, the
one immediately to the        west having been the residence of Enoch’s next older brother, Abel Strawn, until his death in
1848. These         houses can be approached by driving south from the village of Pleasant Valley on what used to be called
           the Bethlehem Pike to a point where a road leads off to the left. In the northeast angle of this intersection is the
stone house formerly occupied by Ed and Laura Roudenbush. Shortly farther on, a road runs west from                 a point just
beyond the Roudenbush house,            and on this lane, as it really is, Jacob Strawhen’s house is the first on the right, his
son        Abel’s the next on the left. At the formation of the Bucks County Committee of Safety on 15 Dec. 1774 Jacob
Strawhen was the member for Haycock Township, but when it became evident that the colonies would resort to arms, he
and Thomas Foulke, the member for Richland, resigned                  on 21 July 1775, unable, as Friends, to serve further. This
brief service, however, has been accepted as qualifying female descendants for membership in the Daughters of the
American Revolution. In 1779            Jacob Strawhen Sr. was recorded as the owner of 350 acres in Haycock Township,
with four horses and          six head of cattle; in 1781, 360 acres and three horses and seven head of cattle; in 1782 350
acres, two          horses and seven head of cattle; in 1783, taxed L4/14/6; in 1784, 360 acres, five horses, five head of
cattle, five dwellings, five outhouses, inhabited by 25 whites and in 1785 he had 360 acres, three horses, nine               head
of cattle. At this period, of course, several of the children must already have married and had            children of their own.
It is obvious from the acreage stated that Jacob Strawhen had added to his              original 255+ acres, and in 1767 he
bought 167 acres adjoining, but no deeds of sale or purchase are on            record at Doylestown.

         Jacob and Christiana were faithful members of Richland Meeting, as were at least some of their children, but
the Strawn family was not uniformly Quaker in background. The parents are undoubtedly buried in          the graveyard
at Richland Meeting, no stones now visible for them. The earliest Strawn stone now visible I    s for Jacob’s grandson
John, who died in 1868. The earlier graves were opened in rows as deaths occurred,      and husbands and wives might
be separated from each other by considerable distance.

         In addition to farming, Jacob Strawhen is said to have engaged in pottery making, a trade followed by
         several descendants. His grandson, John Straughan (son of Daniel), recorded in 1848 that his grandfather was a
man of veracity and candor, five feet, ten inches, tall, stout of brain and limbs. He also says that Jacob died at age 86,
which is too high, and that Christiana died at age 97, which is all of fifteen years too      many.

        Jacob Strawhen died on 20 Dec. 1800, not 1801 as often deduced from the probate record that administration
was granted, 13 Jan. 1801, to his son Daniel Strawhen, and to Israel Foulke (1760-       1824) the securities being John
Cooper and Henry Cooper, undoubtedly his nephews. The inventory         of 13 Feb. 1801 came to L942/18/8. Christiana
Strawhen also died intestate, administration granted
        28 April 1807 to Israel Foulke, with inventory made by Israel Lancaster and George Sheive, L300/8 and ¾
        pence.

                  He married Christiana “Stintje” Pursell, daughter of John Pursell and Hannah Hall,
         1741, in Bethlehem Twp, Hunterdon Co, New Jersey. Born, 1722, in Readington,
         Hunterdon Co, New Jersey. Died, 2 May 1805, in Haycock Twp, Bucks Co,
         Pennsylvania. Children:

i.Thomas. Born, 1742, in Bethlehem, Hunterdon Co, New Jersey. Died, 2 Jan 1814, in Madison Co, Kentucky. He

        1772, in PA.

         Thomas Strawhen was born in New Jersey in 1742, and returned to Haycock with his parents where he
         bought land in 1772. He purchased of John Chapman on 12 mo. 24, 1772, forty acres of land in Haycock
         Township, and later purchased of his father twelve acres adjoining. Roberts says he remained on this farm until
1797, when he went to settle to Washington Township, Fayette County, Pennsylvania on the east bank of the
Monongahela, but local records indicate that he came to the Tenmile before 1786, for in that        year he signed the will
of Thomas Blackledge, while on October 26, 1785, he warranted the tract of land            adjoining Blackledge. This was
the land on the road to Clarksville from Jefferson, where the high bridge         crosses Laurel Run. He must have been
living here when he witnessed his neighbor’s will. He was twice          married, first on June 8, 1769, to Mary Heacock,
who was born in Bucks County on May 11, 1752. She                        died on March 27, 1770, and he took a second
wife, whose first name was Sophia. A record dated the 25 th of September 1800 was found at the Westland Monthly

Monthly Meeting, dated the 20th of April      1799 was endorsed to Redstone Monthly Meeting in Fayette County,
Pennsylvania on the 3rd of October 1800.

iv.William Sr. Born, 17 Jan 1749/0, in Hunterdon Co, New Jersey. Died, 12 June 1809, in Strawntown, Haycock     Twp,
Bucks Co, Pennsylvania. He married, first, Ann Van Horn, daughter of Garrett Van Horn and Mary         Neal. He
married, second, Mary Raudenbush, ca 1790.

          William Strawn, son of Jacob and Christiana (Pursell) Strawn, born in Hunterdon County, New Jersey on
January 17th, 1749/50 and came to Bucks County with his           parents when an infant. He was living on a farm of 64
acres part of the old homestead at Strawntown in 1801, and continued to reside there until his           death. His home was
the old hotel property at Strawntown. He married, first, Ann Van Horn, daughter of             Garrett Van Horn of
Springfield, and second, Mary Raudenbush. Mary (Raudenbush) Strawn                   married George Unkel after the death of
her husband William Strawn. After William’s first marriage to Ann Van                Horn, he purchased land on the west side
of Bethlehem Road, that joined his father’s land, which           connected Philadelphia and Bethlehem. This place was
long known as the Strawntown Inn and has been            and is today a famous place. It was a stage coach Inn. Many
prominent people tarried here. At first it was a         small stone building, and later enlarged by two stone additions, just
as it stands today and when the        families of William lived in it. A deep cave at the rear of the hotel figures in the
Indian and legendary lore              of the neighborhood. During the early stage coach days the Strawntown Inn was
famous for the Old English             mutton chops and imported ale served by the host. At this place his first wife died and
he brought into it his        second wife, and his children by both wives were born at the Inn, and this notable place
William passed away from all his earthly works. The Raudenbush family carried on until his oldest son William Jr.
and       wife took the famous Strawntown Inn over, who later sold out the land and business of the Inn to Mary
          Strawn Seiple, the oldest daughter of William. The Old Tavern bar is still intact, liquors, mixed drinks, and malt
beverages have taken place of old ale. The Inn has a reputation for its fine steaks. It is the meeting            place of folks
of the stage and the arts. It has never been modernized but stands as it did a century ago and           makes it one of the
unusual Inns in Bucks County.

                                           MILLER RECORD

1st Generation
Samuel Miller, Sr.     born Nov. 17, 1793, Bucks Co., PA, son of Samuel M. and Sarah Miller.
                       died April 11, 1865, Chatham, Tioga Co. PA
       The Miller family was in Philadelphia before Wm. Penn, who secured propriety rights in 1681. Millers were
       among the few Dutch settlers already there. Samuel M. Miller lived in Upper Black Eddy, Bucks Co., PA.
       He was killed in the War of 1812.

       Samuel, Elizabeth and three children (Mahlon, Rachel & Samuel, Jr.) left Bucks Co. (where he worked as a
       shoemaker.) in 1826 and worked a farm near Ithaca, NY for 2 years. They then moved onto the farm now
               known as Miller Homestead in Chatham Township. Elizabeth drove horses while Samuel drove the
cattle         and blazed the trail. They bought the land from the Bingham Lumber & Land So. They built a log cabin
               (where Sarah and Eliza were born.) (Until c.1858 when a machine for stitching together soles and
uppers         was invented by Lyman Blake and developed by Gordon McKay, shoemakers worked at home or as
               itinerants.)
       In 1835 a Samuel Miller served as County Commissioner of Tioga Co., PA. Need to confirm this is ―our‖
               Samuel Miller.

                 Obituary from Westfield, PA newspaper:
                 John Bush passed away very suddenly at the home of B. R. Warren in Chatham, for whom he had
                 worked for the past nine years. (He was an itinerant farmer.) John was twice married. His last
                 wife died about 11 years ago. To these two unions were born eight children, six of whom are living.
                 The funeral was held from the Warren home at 11:00 on Friday, January 11, and the interment
                 was in the Champlin cemetery, near Westfield. Rev. Fay H. Chapman, pastor of the M. E. church
                 at Westfield, officiated. Mr. and Mrs. Warren, the children and brother wish to thank all who so
         kindly helped in their hour of sorrow and affliction.

                 Neal tells that they were eating beef stew when his father put his hand to his head, leaned back and
                         died, his head falling into the stew. John's death certificate states Heart Bloc as the cause of
death.

4th Generation
Gladys Bush married Charles Parke Loomis June 21, 1928
               Helen Marie          March 13, 1930

        GLADYS JUANITA BUSH LOOMIS

        Gladys was born on April 1, 1902 in Westfield, PA. She was the oldest child of Neva (Neal) and
        John Bush. Later children were Dorothy, Neal, Leslie, Wilma, and Ethlyn. Neva died of a
        hemorrhage following Ethlyn's birth, on December 5, 1912. The children went to various family and
        neighbors for their upbringing. Gladys went to live with her Neal grandparents, and later Dorothy
        joined the family, which also included four male Neal cousins.

        After graduation from Knoxville (PA) High School in 1921, Gladys attended Meeker Business
        School, working in a home for room and board. Upon graduation she went to work in Knoxville as
        book-keeper for Lugg's Department store. Mr. Lugg helped with her tuition in return for her promise
        to come back and work for him.

         She married Charles Parke Loomis, originally from Troy, PA., on June 21, 1928, in Elmira, New York.
They lived in Mansfield, PA where Charlie worked as a mechanic, then ran the Ford        dealership. On March
13, 1930, Helen Marie was born. Gladys's brother, Neal, was married to                   Elizabeth (Betty)
Howe. When Betty gave birth to their son, Lloyd Norman Bush, on December 5,              1933, she became very
ill. She wanted Gladys and Charlie to rear her son. She died within three                weeks of Lloyd's birth.
Lloyd was reared as Gladys and Charlie's son, although he was never adopted. His father maintained a close
relationship with him, even though Neal's second wife did not         want to take Lloyd into their home.

        As the Bush children grew up they became very close, which seems unusual, considering the different
        upbringing. Wilma was adopted and lived in southern Pennsylvania, so had little contact with the
        other children. But as adults they were all in constant contact with each other, as long as they lived.

        In 1940, Charlie moved the family to Covington, PA and opened a garage there. However, upon the
        outbreak of World War II, he went to Erie, where his brother, Luther, lived, and found a job in a
        defense plant. The family joined him there in the summer of 1942. About two years later, Charlie
        left the plant, and opened his own service station. He continued to run his own businesses the rest of
        his work life, with one exception.

        He suffered a "nervous breakdown" in 1946. Ultimately he had to be admitted to a state hospital for
        treatment. Gladys found work in the General Electric plant on the opposite side of Erie. She worked
        on a production line, and had to take the city bus across the city every day, in order to keep the family
        together. She also sold Avon products to help boost the family income. Charlie was in the hospital
        for six months. He was able to open a gas station, eventually, but Gladys continued to work at G.E.
        for 11 years.

        They lived first at 3113 Elmwood Ave., then in 1947 they bought a house at 906 East 21st Street,
        closer to G.E. Sometime later Gladys worked at Maynell Manufacturing Company as book-keeper,
        still doing Charlie's book-keeping as well.

        After they both retired, they were finally able to travel. Since Helen married and moved away, there
        were always grandchildren to visit. Lloyd worked in Erie briefly, then in North Carolina, before
        settling in Florida. He served two years in the U.S. Army, then returned to Florida. So that was
        another favorite place to visit. Charlie and Gladys also made a number of trips with her sister,
        Dorothy and brother-in-law, Hugh.

                                    GRIFFITH-LOOMIS FAMILY RECORD


       Some places they visited were: Canada, camping at Algonquin Park with Helen and Dale & their
       children; Nova Scotia with Dorothy and Hugh; Texas, and states between there and Pennsylvania
       with Dorothy and Hugh; Las Vegas; many visits to North Carolina while Helen and Dale lived there.
       After Helen and Dale moved to Louisiana they drove or flew there about once a year, and joined them
       in some of their travels: taking grand-daughter, Debbie, to New Mexico one summer, for example.

        Charlie died in January, 1978, less than six months before their 50th wedding anniversary. With Helen
and Dale settled in LaPlace, Louisiana by this time, and Lloyd and Merry in West Palm Beach, Florida, it was
decided to try to sell the house, and move Gladys to LaPlace. She lived with Helen       and Dale for three
years. Then an apartment complex for the elderly was built in LaPlace, so Gladys         applied for that. She
moved in February, 1981, when Place Dubourg opened. During her first years               in LaPlace she worked
as a volunteer in the RSVP program. She helped at the local nursing home,                and at the Senior
Center. When the River Parish Hospital opened, she signed up as a volunteer there,       and worked there for
several years.

       After Charlie died, Gladys still traveled. She flew to Rochester, New York to visit Dorothy, and to
       Florida to see Lloyd and his family nearly every year as long as she was able. She joined Dorothy
       and Hugh for a trip to Mexico. And in September of 1980 she flew to England with Helen and Dale
       to meet her first great-grandson, Jared. While in England she traveled through quite a bit of the
       country, and took a day trip across the English Channel to France.

       She was active in crafts, quilting, etc., at Place Dubourg as long as she was able to use her hands.
       Eventually it became too painful to do hand work. She joined the local Baptist church, and was active
in Sunday School, Women's Missionary work, Bible School, etc.

       Gladys always liked to listen to music and singing, but she was tone deaf and didn't sing. It was hard
       to say what kind of music she liked, but probably Christian music would be a good guess.

       In the summer of 1993, at the age of 91, Gladys developed a heart condition. She was also
       becoming quite senile. Helen then placed Gladys in Belle Maison Nursing Home in Hammond.
       Gladys died on August 26, 1994 at Hammond, Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, and was buried in Laurel
Hill Cemetery in Erie, Pennsylvania

       Dorothy was married in the home of Gladys Bush Loomis. She was married by Hugh Elliott's step-father,
       Rev. Peter van Duren. Those present at the wedding were Peter van Duren, Addie (Simpson) Elliott van
       Duren, Dorothy E. Wilcox, Gladys Bush Loomis, Ethlyn Bush, Neva Burt (later to marry Leslie Bush),
       Elizabeth Bush (first wife of Neal Bush), Charles Loomis, Neal H. Bush, and Helen Marie Loomis (daughter
       of Gladys and Charles Loomis).Neva O. Burt and Leslie G. Bush witnessed for the wedding.

        Dorothy and Hugh went to Jake Bush and his wife Hattie's home for their honeymoon. (Jake and Hattie ere
        Dorothy's uncle and aunt.) After Neva Neal Bush died in childbirth, Dorothy and Neal stayed with their father
for two years while Gladys and Leslie went to live with their Neal Grandparents. Then Dorothy and      Leslie traded
places. Neal and Leslie lived with the Warren family.

       Dorothy attended Meeker Business School upon completion of high school in 1924, cleaning house in
       exchange for room and board.

        She worked part-time for a while in a local Department store in Rochester, NY. She was known for her agility
with her hands: baking and crafts such as knitting and crocheting. During the Depression in the 1930's she baked pies
which her husband, Hugh Elliott, sold as a means to help financially during those hard years.    Dorothy and Hugh
took care of many foster children, among them Ruth Stewart who maintained a              relationship with them
through-out her life, becoming as one of the family. Dorothy died December 16, 1993 in Rochester NY.

       Elizabeth Catherine Howe Bush, or Betty as the family called her, was a missionary, or the child of
       missionaries and contracted an illness which lay benign until her pregnancy. While in the hospital after the
       birth of her son, Neal would walk to visit her through the hard winter snow. During these visits, realizing that
       Neal could not care for a child and work, she indicated to him that she wished Lloyd to be raised by Gladys
       and Charlie Loomis as she had met them, and thought their daughter, Helen, to be very nice.

       Letter of Administration
       Registrar's Office, Nov. 20, 1934
       This day was presented the petition of Neal H. Bush of Delmar Township, Tioga Co. Penna. representing:

       Lloyd Norman Bush, a son, 1 yr. old residing at Mansfield, Tioga Co. Penna.
                That the value of the personal property was about fifty dollars. The Petitioner therefore prayed that

                                              BUSH RECORD

        The Bush family is of ancient English origin. The progenitor of the family in this country was Reynolds Bush,
who settled in Massachusetts at an early date. He was one of the proprietors of Cambridge in 1641. In 1644 he
mortgaged his land, but redeemed it in 1657. Soon after this date he located in Connecticut, and from    this colony his
descendants removed to New York.

1st Generation:
John Bush, probably a descendant of Reynolds Bush, of Massachusetts, was born in Orange County, New            York.
He     attended the schools of his native county and was for many years a prosperous farmer in that county. He died
       there about 1820.
               Peter G. Bush
               Mary Jane                married Alexander Cushaw


2nd Generation:
Peter G. Bush born Aug. 4, 1819 (or 1816) in Orange Co. New York. (Helen Loomis Griffith searched the 1820
       census records of Orange Co. New York, and was unable to find any reference to John Bush.) Because of the
       early death of his father, he was reared by Jacob Puff Bush. He attended the schools of his native county and
       at an early date removed to Schuyler Co., NY where he engaged in farming until about 1842. He moved to
       Tioga County, Pennsylvania in 1843, locating at Knoxville, where he was engaged in the hotel business for
       two years. He moved to Westfield in 1854 where he operated the Red Lion and Boardman Hotels for the next
       five years. Then he was engaged in farming, bought and sold livestock quite extensively, and for four years
       operated a stage line between Westfield, PA and Addison, New York. Later he sold his hotel property and
       purchased a farm of fifty acres in Westfield Township, where he made his home until his death. He was a
       member of the Baptist church, and in politics was a Republican.
                P. G. Bush served the Methodist Episcopal Church of Liberty (organized in 1842) as pastor in 1864.
       He was a member of the I.O.O.F. and a stanch Republican. He died 01/07/1874 and was buried in Westfield
       Cemetery, PA.

Hi,

I was searching the LDS site and found the following frorn an Ancestral File that had been submitted.

John T. Bush
                b. Dec. 1792 at Warwick, Orange, NY
                d. Newfield, NY
                M. Newfield, NY to Mary Bensel

        Father: William Ter Boss Mother: Esther Bull

                Children: Sarah J. Bush b. 1818 at Newfield, NY
                 Peter Bush b. 1820 Newfield, NY

William Ter Boss was b. April 11, 1764 at Fishkill, NY and d. 1 April 1825 at Florida, Orange, NY. He
married Esther Bull about 1783.

What do you think? Sounds like our family, doesn't it?

In my mind, it certainly bears pursuing. I'm feeling rather excited right now.

Love,
Sharon

From Sharon, July 13, 1999

Helen and Chris,

Helen - the will/letters of administration summary will be repeat for
you.

Wanted to send it along with the attachment, which is what I have been able to piece together of what I think
may be our Bush line. I am wondering if some of the wills seem to fit anyplace in your minds. There is a
William T. Bush who d. in 1843. I was wondering if you thought the will, dated 1838/9 of William T. Bush,
that had a Henry(?) Bush serving summons on those named in that will in 1843 might be the same William T.
Bush. (I sure hope that makes sense - after you read the summaries and the attached file.)

Bear in mind, none of the attached is confirmed with original sources, at
least by me.

==========BEGIN SUMMARY OF WILLS/LETTERS OF ADMINISTRATION=========

The Wills and Letters of Administration I ordered from Orange Co. arrived today. They are not much help.
About the only additional information that is given in the letters of Administration that was not present in
the index is the last place of residence. The letters of administration for John T. Bush and Jacob T. Bush were
typed forms with blank spaces for names and dates as appropriate. The forms were slightly different for each,
so they must have changed over time. Information around the will of William T. Bush was somewhat
confusing, and difficult to read –they were hand written.

Anyway, the information as I can glean it would be as follows:

John T. Bush, late of the town of Walkill, Orange Co. NY letter of administration granted to Mary T. Bush
widow and William T. Bush Junr a brother, were granted March 20, 1820.

Jacob T. Bush, late of the town of Crawford, Orange Co. NY, letter of administraton granted to Stephen (S?)
Bush a son Nov. 28, 1898.

William Bush, late of the town of Bloomingrove, Orange Co. NY names Phebe (___sell) sole legatee and
devisee named in will July 30, 1873. (This entry consisted of 3 lines. If there was a will following,
it was on pages that were not copied - because they were not requested, based on the information I had)

William T. Bush, late of the town of Cornwall, Orange Co. NY. Henry T. Bush claiming interest in the estate
of William for proof of will of said deceased, on March 13, 1843, a citation was issued to:
George Bush of Piermont Rockland Co, Horatio N. Bush, Edward A. Bush, William Morrison,Jr and Harriet
Ann his wife, William Bush, Louisa M. Bush of the City of New York, Daniel Bush of Providence R. I.
Robert Govan(?) Carloline (sic) his wife, Mary Payne and Ann Burton of in England, the next of kin of
William Bush to appear to attend the probate of a certain instrument in writing perporting to be the last will
and testament of said dec'd bearing date of June 2, 1828.

And finally is the Will of William Bush, dated 1828, which names Daniel Bush, brother, executor, appears
probated April 4, 1829. Within the will, which was extremely difficult to read, was a Mary Payne, sister, of
London England. I decided this must be the will referenced above.

When I get a chance, I will try to make out more of the latter, it should
09/01/2011                                                                                 Page*43*

give the relationships.

Any suggestions/thoughts?

I thought I might be able to confirm something through Mary Bensel, at least confirm that she is the Mary,
widow of John T. Bush. IGI records at LDS online show Mary Bensel, b. Feb. 1, 1790, Montgomery, Dutch
Reformed Church, Orange, New York, daughter of Peter Bensel and Elisabeth Linderman.

        Sharon, I have just the one History book, sometimes there is quite a bit and others it's just a name in a
        list.

        William isn't in the index at all but there are several listing of the Surname Different spellings.

        pg 123 under Members of the Assembly "Dutchess was not represented separately in the Colonial
        Assembly until 1713. Previous to that time when repesented at all, it was connected with Ulster
        country. The first resident represenative was Leonard Lewiss, who was elected and served in 1713-26
        being associated in 1715-17 with Baltus Van Kleek, who served till his death, and was succeeeded by
        Johannis Terbosch, who was admitted May 4 1717 ans served till his death when Henry Beekman was
        chosen his successor. The latter was admitted August 31 , and served continusiously until 1758. Their
        successors were Johannis Van Kleek, 1726-37, Jacobus Ter Boss 1737-43" .

        pg 125 Under heading of First Judges of county. "The first Judges of Dutchess county were: Leonard
        Lewis Nov. 24 1716, Jacobus Ter-boss Nov. 24,"

     "Accordingly a consultation was had with Major Daniel Ter Bos, Jonas Halstead , John Cook and Mr.
     Pine of Fishkill, August 8 1784"
     pg 507 Under hearing of Town of Fishkill, sub heading Rombout Patent "That deed covered all the
     land secured to them by the division referred to, excepting and reserving always out of said premises,
     one tenement grist-mill and water course thereunto belonging toughter with three hundred acres of
     land ajoining the said mill , now or late in possession of said Roger Brett, or his assigns, and also one
     hundred and fifty acres now or late in possession of John Terboss"

     pg 509 under heading of Town of Fishkill "For many years the progress of settlement was very slow.
     and not until about 1720 was there a blacksmith within the limits of the county, says Mr Baily. The
     nearest blacksmith to the Fishkill settlers was at Wiltwyck, (Kingston) In 1723 there only 195
     taxable inhabitants in the County, forty-seven of whom were in the south ward. Among them were the
     Mousiers, Lassinks, Lownsberrys, Schoutens, Walderns and Dinges. In that year, says Mr
     Brinckerhoff, Jacobus Swartwout was elected Supervisor; Peter Dubois and Thomas Ter Boos,
     Assors; John De Larger and Jocob Terboos, Overseers of the King's Highway; John Buys and Garret
     Van Vliet, Overseers of Fences. In 1730 the number of taxable inhabitants had increased to 71.
     Jacobus De Peyster was then Supervisor; Johannes Ter Boss and Jacobus Swartwout, Assers,"

     Pg 512 "The First Settlers in Fishkill village, says Mr Bailey, were Henry Terboss and Henry
     Rosekrame, but the name of neither appears in the list of inhabitants in Dutchess County, in 1714,
     though both appear in the list of freeholders in 1740. Treboss, he says, was an eccentric man, and
     since he locates him where he elsewhere locates Johannes Terboss (Terbush) we are inclined to think
     he has confounded the two names. The name of Johannes Terboss appears in the list of 1714.

     It is one of varied orthography, and has, says Mr. Brinckerhoff, who pronounces him one of the first
     repesentative men in this part of the County, either been changed from its original or otherwise has
     now become extinct among us. He was an early justice of the Peace and is spoken of in old
     manuscripts as being a Judge. He was admitteed as a representative in the colonial assembly May 4
     1717, on the death of Baltus Van Kleek, and was succeeded at his death by Henry Beekman, August
     31 1725. He owned lands about Fishkill village, including the site of the Dutch Church, which was
     purchased of him."

                                         HISTORY OF NEAL NAME
        The name of O'Neil was interwoven with the early history of Ireland for many centuries. The origin of the
        O'Neil clan has been traced to Nial (1800 BC), the son of Phenius Pharsa, King of Scythia.
        Our Neals are supposedly big Irishmen who immigrated to England, and the names O'Neal, Neale, and Neal
        are all the same. The Lord Mayor of London was of the same Neals (circa 1832).

1st Generation
John Neal                               July 10, 1765                  Aug. 18, 1854
                  married in Long Lane, Derbyshire, England
                 Catherine Ault         Jan 27, 1785                   Oct. 11, 1882
                 John                   July 15, 1815
                 Joseph                 May 21, 1813?                  April 24, 1856

        In May of 1832, the family took passage for America. After a voyage of 57 days they arrived in New York.
        They traveled to Corning, NY on the Erie Canal, the boats being drawn by horses. Mrs. John Goodall of
        Charleston Township, Tioga County, PA, a sister, had written home telling of the wonderful hunting and
        fishing and urging them to come. She and her husband met the family at Corning with oxen. They arrived in
        Charleston Township, PA on Nov. 30, 1832 and settled as soon as a house could be built, south of what is
        now Hills Creek Lake. They could hear panthers in the woods, and deer came to their barn and ate hay with
        the cows. One year they killed 87 deer; that was their food.

          In the fall Mr. Neal would walk to Tioga, an older settlement, and carry home a bag of corn on his back. Later
he had a large iron kettle upwards of three or more feet high, would slip a chain around it, hitch a horse to it and go
from neighbor to neighbor scalding their hogs in it. This kettle was given to the school scrap drive         for iron for
guns during the World War II. John, Jr. made barrels, tubs, churns, shoes, etc. He kept turkeys and as a side line
pulled teeth for people around there. The men in the family were large framed heavyweights           about six and one-half
feet tall. A pair of brothers, twins, were left in England who weighed 615 pounds,          together.

                                CELEBRATE NEAL CENTENNIAL

              John and Catherine Neal settled in Charleston Township, Tioga country, PA., November 30, 1832, on
     the farm still owned by members of the family. Their descendants celebrated the 100th anniversary of the event
     at the Whitneyville Grange hall Saturday.

             John Neal was born in England in 1765. He married Catherine Ault. Both were born and lived at
     Long Lane, Derbyshire, England. On July 15, 1815, a son was born to John and Catherine Neal. Later a son,
     Joseph was born. In the fall of 1832, the family, mother, father and two sons, took passage for America. After
     a voyage of 57 days they arrived in New York. They traveled to Corning on the Erie canal, the boats being
     drawn by horses. From there they came to Charleston township, arriving November 30, 1832.
             John Neal and his wife spent the remainder of their lives on the land they cleared and cultivated. He
     died August 17, 1854, and his wife died October 11, 1872. John Neal was 89 years old, and his wife was about
     the same age at death. The descendants of John and Catherine number about 200.

             William Penn Neal, aged 86 years, son of John Neal, was the oldest representative of the family at the
     celebration. Seventy-eight representatives of the family were present. James Ely acted as chairman and after
     dinner a program of community singing, vocal solos and recitations was given. Mrs. Olive Neal Thomas and
     James Ely and Mrs. Ed Ely gave readings, and William Neal, of Mansfield, gave several vocal numbers.

               Roy J. Dunham, of Wellsboro, presented a beautiful basket of chrysanthemums in honor of the
     occasion. William Penn Neal gave an interesting outline of the Neal family history. He said the brothers came
     to this section the same year the old covered Bridge at Tioga was built. A number of antiques were on view,
     among them a doll 80 years old, coverlets in blue and white, homespun blankets, a spinning wheel and a copper
     warming pan, the property of Mrs. Horatio Neal.

              Among the relatives present were: Mr. and Mrs. David Warren, Mrs. Eva Richardson, Mr. and Mrs.
     Fred Seasons, Mrs. Edith Morley and children, Mrs. Lena Irwin, of Wellsboro and vicinity; Mrs. Juliette White

      It is thought that John Henry bought the farm on Close Hill in about 1896. Carroll Neal tells of hearing about
      his having planted the apple trees. Dorothy told the story of John Henry buying a car, probably a model T,
      while living on the farm on Close Hill. He was so used to driving horses and being able to look around that he
      continued to look around while driving the car and kept putting it in the ditch along the side of the road on
      Close Hill. He finally gave the car to one of his sons, or Leroy’s sons who were living with them, who used it
      to take Dorothy and Gladys to school.

                Would you walk 200 miles in the dead of winter for $8 per month? WILLIAM SHAFF (1754-1829)
      traveled on foot from Junius, Seneca County to Salem, Washington County, New York, in 1822, at the age of 68,
      to have two friends sign an affidavit that he served in the Revolution. This enabled William to obtain an $8 a
      month pension from the federal government.

                William Shaff, a native of Germany, probably came to America before 1775 as his son, John was born
      1776 at Saratoga Springs. William enlisted May 1, 1775 in Washington County, NY, and served three separate
      terms of duty in the Continental Line, seeing action in the Battle of Bennington, St. John and at the taking of
      Burgoyne in October, 1777. He continued to serve until 1778 when he was discharged at Fort George in
      Washington County. In order for William to qualify for a pension in 1822, he had to demonstrate a need by
      providing certain personal information.

               Mr. Shaff. was in possession of about 79 acres of land and a small log house, with a mortgage of
      $1100 and several other debts. William stated that after all his debts were paid, his property would not be worth
      more than $10. He was a cripple, with a broken shoulder and not able to work.

                 His family then consisted of himself, his wife who was in poor health, his daughter, Nancy 20 years old,
      and two small grandchildren of his daughter Lydia Van Tassell. He could not support his family without the
      assistance of his country. An inventory of his belongings included; 1 handkerchief, 1 pocketbook, 1 "grate" coat,
      2 vests, 2 coats, 4 shirts, 1 looking glass, 1 pewter platter and 2 plates, 1 old chest, 1 jug, 1 churn, 1 griddle, 1/2

                     The Night Before Christmas

                      by Charles Parke Loomis

                    Circa mid-30's

           (If he didn't actually compose it, he let us think that he did.)


     "Twas the night before Christmas when all through the flat
     Not a creature was stirring, not even a cat.
     The children were nestled all snug in their beds
     While visions of electric toys danced in their heads.
     While I in pajamas, likewise in a grouch
     Had gone to my patent convertible couch
     When out on the concrete
     There arose such a clatter
     I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter
     The arc light shone bright on our new garbage can
     Awaiting the call of the D.S.C. man
     And what did my wondering eyes devour
     But a touring car of a hundred horse power.
     With a business-like chauffeur so shining and slick
     I knew in a jiffy it must be St. Nick.
     I drew in my head and was turning around
     When in through the air shaft he came with a bound.
     His suit was of broadcloth; the finest I've seen
     Through it smelled rather strangely of fresh gasoline.
     A bundle of bank notes he had in a sack.
     He looked like a winner just home from the track.
     He said not a word, but the jolly old elf
     Went right to the mantle and laid on the shelf
     A letter typewritten in business-like style.
     Then he climbed in his car and with three loud "honk honks"
     Whizzed 'round the corner and off to the Bronx.
     I tore open the letter, the message I read
     Then I climbed silently back into bed.
     For here's what I saw in despair and disgust
     "Retired from business, sold out to the trust."

                           THE LOOMIS HOMESTEAD - WINDSOR, CONNECTICUT

        The Loomis homestead in Windsor, Connecticut, is located on a slight elevation above a bend of the
        Farmington River just to the north of Founders Hall, the main building of Loomis Chaffee School. As one of
        the oldest houses in the state, dating from 1640, its historical prestige and close ties with the early colonial life
        of Windsor have made it a shrine and a symbol of the enduring virtues of those who founded this country.

        One of the principal aims of the founders of Loomis Chaffee School was the preservation of the Loomis
        Homestead as a "hearthstone on the historic grounds, rich in traditions and hallowed by ancestral memories."
        The act of incorporation in 1874 provided that ---"the trustees above named shall have the power and
        authority, with the consent of the owners thereof, to select such portion of the original homestead of Joseph
        Loomis, taken up by him in 1639, and continued in the ownership and possession of his descendants from that
        day to this, situated upon "The Island", so called, in Windsor, in the County of Hartford, and State of
        Connecticut and any other lands immediately contiguous thereto..."

        Mr. James Lee Loomis, in his address dedicating Founders Hall, shortly after the school had opened,
        emphasized for the new school the importance of the Loomis Homestead by stating,

                "upon this spot our ancestor Joseph Loomis built his home in 1640. The work of his hands still stands
        as a part of the ancestral homestead. It has been occupied by his descendants from its construction to the
        present time, (1916), 276 years. The Founders understood the value of a site on ancestral and historic
        ground".

         The Loomis Homestead has not been outside the Loomis family and is in direct descent from Joseph Loomis
         who died in 1658. The inheritors and the years they probably possessed the house, following Joseph, are
         Deacon John, 1658-1688, and his widow until her death in 1696. Timothy Loomis held possession until 1710
and his widow until 1750. In the second half of the eighteenth century, Odiah and Ozias and his widow continued the
line of possession until 1807. Only two more families inherited the Homestead until it became the property of
Loomis Institute. Odiah and his widow resided there until 1859, and then finally Thomas          Warham Loomis, who
died in 1895. His wife and his daughter, Jennie, became the last members of the          Loomis family to live in the
old Homestead. Miss Jennie Loomis deeded the Homestead to Loomis Institute in            1901 and this deed marked the
first and only time that the ancestral home had passed from the direct family            line. Yet it remained in the
hands of the founders' spiritual descendants.

        The eight successive family generations living in this house over the space of three centuries constitute one of
        the most remarkable records of family tenure and tradition in the country. In 1944, at the death of Miss Jennie
        Loomis, the house became a residence for a member of the Loomis Chaffee School faculty. However, it
        remains a memorial to the Loomis family and a museum, that preserves the tangible and the spiritual past of
        the family.

        The earliest known mention of the Loomis Homestead is found in the will of Deacon John Loomis, the second
        owner of the dwelling. The document is dated August 27, 1685, and was exhibited in court December 4, 1688.
This recorded will gave his wife the use of the Homestead as long as she lived.

                "My will is that my wife shall have the product of the thirds of my land as long as she lives and that
                the house, homestead, and barn remayne to my wife as long as she lives and the free dispose of it
                amongst my children when she dies"

        The south wing is really the earlier part of the Homestead and is in its original position, although many
        changes have been made since Joseph Loomis constructed the "new house in the wilderness" during the years
        1639 and 1640. The later and larger addition in the latter part of the 17th or early 18th century is the main
        part of the house. The ell to the east, which became the family kitchen, was attached to the larger section of
        the house somewhat later. Reconstruction has uncovered various interesting details and helped to determine
        the periods when various parts of the house were built. The beautiful paneling of the north room of the main

                                  GRIFFITH-LOOMIS FAMILY RECORD


     part of the house was discovered by accident under a covering of laths and plaster. The 18th century paneling
     in the south room was evidence of an earlier and simpler colonial type. The excavation for the restoration of
     the foundations of the fireplace in the south wing uncovered the earliest origins of the original house in the
     17th century.

     The Homestead contains many excellent examples of earlier living. Especially interesting is an ancient cast-
     iron fireback from the 16th century with Mary Tudor arms. This antique piece, still serving its original
     purpose, is believed to have been brought from England by Joseph Loomis. An extremely rare earthen
     Bellamine jug also dates from the 16th century. Other objects of interest dating from the 17th century include
     a will signed by Joseph Loomis in 1652, a family account book and pewter dishes.

     The distinguishing architectural features of this colonial house include the massive fireplace in the original
     kitchen, the old hand-wrought hinges, the half-size window panes at the top and bottom of the windows in the
     south wing, and the charming main entrance. The rear stairway to the second floor is extremely narrow and
     closeted, in harmony with the other colonial aspects of the building. There is a written record of the
     construction of the old china closet in the large room of the main section of the house. Scattered throughout
     the house are choice antiques, collected through the centuries by the various members of the Loomis family.

     The southwest porch, which will be remembered by those who have visited the Homestead, was added
     presumably in the 19th century but was removed in 1953 to restore the house to its original early American
     beauty.

     The house has attracted the interest of antiquarians, architects, and historians who have found it a splendid
     example of the development of the American rural house. By careful reconstruction and planning under the
     sympathetic direction of the Loomis Chaffee School, the Homestead has become not only a treasured
     memorial to the Loomis family, but also a monument of early American living and the development of the
     colonial house through centuries of family life. It is now, and will remain, a priceless heritage.

                                 THE LOOMIS CHAFFEE SCHOOL

     In the early 1870's, four Loomis brothers, James Chaffee, Hezekiah Bradley, Osbert Burr, and John Mason,
     and their sister, Abigail Sarah, wife of H. Sidney Hayden, united by the loss of all of their children, decided to
     pool their considerable estates and found an institution for secondary education in the hope

             "that some good may come to posterity through the harvest, poor though it may be, of our lives."

     The founders were closely allied in their vision by a sense of family and obligation to their kin and the fact
     that the original Loomis family homestead, built by Joseph Loomis in 1639 at the confluence of the
     Farmington and Connecticut rivers and continuously a home for his descendants, provided an ideal site for
     their dream.

     The Loomis Institute was chartered in 1874. It was the hope of John Mason Loomis, expressed in his will
     that the Loomis Institute would be a

             "shrine upon which boys and girls shall take the highest inspirations for better and grander lives..."

     The charter for the Loomis Institute, unusual for private secondary schools at the time, stipulated that the
     Institute should offer a broad curriculum (vocational and college preparatory) and that

             "No officer, instructor, employee or student shall be made eligible or ineligible for or by reason of
             his or her religious or political opinions, nor be compelled to acknowledge or sign any religious or
             political creed or test whatever."

             "Free and gratuitous education" was to be provided as far as the endowment would permit.

     Upon the death of the widow of John Mason Loomis in 1910, the business of construction began. Nathaniel
     Horton Batchelder was chosen as the first headmaster in 1912. The Loomis Institute, a boarding and day
     school, opened in 1914 with an enrollment of thirty-nine boys and five girls.

     An increasing desire for stronger emphasis on elements particular to the education of young women led to the
     movement of the girls' division from the Island in 1925. In 1926 the girls' division was reopened in another
     part of Windsor with Mr. Paul Parsons as director. The name was Chaffee School. The boys' school became
     known as the Loomis School.

     In 1972 both schools were unified and became known as The Loomis Chaffee School. They have become
     largely college preparatory, as the demand for vocational direction abated.

     As of 1997, the student body consists of approximately 700 students, with a faculty of 125.

                                            THE PARKE FAMILY

        From: The Genealogy of the Parke Family of Connecticut. Compiled by Frank S. Parke 1009 Hobart St.,
        Washington, DC

                                              Origin of the name of Parke

      It is not a very difficult matter to trace the origin of our family name. Although we are not so plentiful as
      the Smiths, Browns, Jones, etc., there are enough of us to prove that we did not all come from the same
      ancestor unless we go back to Adam. He, however, lived in a kind of park and had he taken a surname in the
same manner that our recent ancestors did, would possibly have been called Mr. Parke.

        The book, Patronnica Britannica, an authority on English surnames published at London, 1860, has the
        following in regard to the sources from which the Parke families derive their names.

        Park from residence near a park. Anciently - at Parke -and - A. Parke -, see however, Peter. Park (1) may be a
        derivative of Peter and an intermediate between that and Perkins, or (2) a locale, whether from one of the
        places called Parc in Normandy, situated respectively near Dieppe and Berney, or from residence near some
        English Park, like the De la Parocke of the H. R.

        One writer gives the birthplace of Robert Parke as Gestingthorpe, Essex, and the late Stephen Cleveland of
        Preston, Connecticut left among his papers a statement to that effect, but did not give his authority for this
        statement - probably originated from the fact that there was a Parke family in Gestingthorpe.

        The following is found in the History of the County of Essex compiled by Philip Norant, London MDCCLXXIII.
Vol. 11, page 309 in the parish of Gestingthorpe.

        Parke is an estate in the parish of Gestingthorpe, Essex, which derived its name from a family existing here
        from the time of King Edward III to that of King Charles I. In 1391 Julien Att Parke and Walter De
        Geldford held here of William De Ufford, Earl of Suffolk, the fourth part of a King's Fee called Marshall which
is supposed to be the estate of Robert Parke,

        "dyed in 1400, Margaret, his wife, having outlived him 57 years, dyed Aug. 21, 1457, and both lye buried in
        their church with an epitaph. John, his son, was returned for a Gentleman of Essex in 1433. William seems to
        have been his son. His son, John, dyed in 1574, leaving by Alice, his wife, dau. of Richard Strutt of Maplestead,
        John, living in 1634."

        William, his son, married Hector, dau of William Strutt of Wickham St. Paul's and had by her William,   John,
Robert, Hester, Elizabeth and Sarah. John, second son, an attorney at law, sunk the estate in debt,     etc.

        From same history, page 412, Roger Att Parke, son of William de Parke of St. Osith resided in Stebbing, Essex
County, in 1293, from whom the name, Parke, was given to a capital Messuage in the Parish of Stebbing. The late
Stephen Cleveland of Norwich, Connecticut, left among his papers the statement that    Robert, the third son of
William, came to America. He married Martha, daughter of Robert Chaplyn,               whose wife was Elizabeth,
daughter of Frances Anstey of Bury. Sir Francis Chaplyn, Knight and Mayor of           London in the time of Charles
I, was her brother.

        There appears to be little doubt that it was our Robert who married Martha Chaplyn. It has been claimed
        that the first of the ancestors of Robert Parke came over to England with William the Conqueror and after
        the conquest was rewarded by the King with grants of land in the North of England.

        He was made Master of the Hunt and placed in charge of the Royal Parks, and granted the title of Baronet and
        was known as Thomas de Parke. Among his other descendants were Major William Parke and Col. Richard
        Parke, both Companions of the Order of Bath. Daniel, from whom is descended the Parke Curtis family of
        Virginia, was a relative of Robert Parke.

                                    GRIFFITH-LOOMIS FAMILY RECORD


1st Generation:
Robert Parke (or Sir Robert as he was sometimes called) born in Preston, England, about 1580. He was a man of
       some means. He did not come to this new world through dire necessity or to better his condition, but rather
       through a desire to have more religious liberty. He was of that large number of emigrants mentioned in
       Green's         History of the English People. He and his family sailed from Cower, Isle of Wight, for America
on     board the Arabella with seventy-six passengers, March 29, 1630 and landed in Boston, June 17, 1630, making
       the voyage in seventy-eight days. He lived for a time at Roxbury, Mass. He returned to England the same
       year carrying an order by our Governor to his son, John, in England to pay money -- probably the first bill of
       exchange drawn in America.

        In 1639, he with his son, Thomas, went through the wilderness to Wethersfield, Connecticut, with the first
        settlers there. He resided at Wethersfield about ten years, and in 1649 removed to Pequot (now New London)
        Connecticut. He was a resident of the town plot of New London for about six years, and then removed to
        lands, which he owned on the Mystic River.

        In the first of the town records of New London, the two Winthrops, John and Dean are uniformly entitled
        Mr. as are also Jonathan Brewster and Robert Parke when they appear in the records of the plantations, but
        all others are styled Goodmen or mentioned by their Christian and Surnames without any prefix.

        When Mr. Blinman, the first minister of the Gospel, who preached regularly in New London came in 1650,
        there was no meeting house during the first years of his ministry. He preached in the barn-meeting house
        , which stood on the corner of Hempstead and Granite Streets. It belonged to Mr. Robert Parke.
        August 29, 1651 the following vote of the town was recorded.

               "For Mr. Parke's barn the town does agree for the sue of it until Midsummer next, to give him a days
        work apiece for a meeting house to be by the Saboth (sic) come."

        In 1652, Mr. Parke sold his house lot to Mr. William Rogers of Boston. He was elected a Freeman of the
        Colony in April 1640; a Representative or Deputy to the General Court Sept. 1641, from Wethersfield, and
        again in August 1642. He was a Selectman of New London in 1651, and a Representative 1652. In 1658
        he      was a Selectman of Southertown, afterwards called Mystic, and now known as Stonington, Connecticut.

        Robert Parke married first Martha, a daughter of William Chaplyn at Semer, Suffolk County, England,
        Feb. 9, 1601 or 02. She was baptized at Semer Feb. 4, 1583 or 84. It is probable that she died in England before
the family came to this country as no mention has been found of her here. He married second at Wethersfield about
1644, Mrs. Alice Thompson. She was the widow of John Thompson of Preston,                 England, and the mother of
Dorothy Thompson, who became the wife of Thomas Parke.

                                     GRIFFITH-LOOMIS FAMILY RECORD


        There is upon record a curious order of the General Court of Massachusetts dated May 30, 1644 in favor of
        Robert Parke to the effect that he may proceed in marriage with Alice Thompson, without further
        publishment. He died at Mystic Feb., 1664, aged 84 years. The diary of Thomas Minor under date of Feb.,
        1664 has the following " The 4th of Feb. Mr. Parke departed this life and was burried the 7 day, being
        Tuesday in the year 1664" His grave is in the Whitehall graveyard at Whitehall, Mystic, Connecticut. His
        house was east of the present road and southeast of the burial ground and stood just south of a small knoll,
        somewhat rocky.

        His will is dated May 14, 1660, and was admitted to probate, March 14, 1664 or 65. This will mentions only
        three children, William, the oldest; Samuel, and Thomas. One authority has stated that his oldest son, named
        Robert, stayed in England and had the homestead. Others have held that he may have had other children,
        possibly Joseph, Richard, Edward and Ann.

                                         10, 1641.


2nd Generation
Thomas Parke: married Dorothy Thompson, daughter of Alice Thompson Parke, his stepmother, in 1639 in
         Wethersfield where at least two of her children were born. About 1660 he removed to the Pequot Plantation,
         New London, Connecticut, where he became a Deacon of the church of which the Rev. Richard Blinman, his
         brother-in-law (they having married sisters), was pastor. He resided in Pequot for about six years, and then
         moved to Southertown (or Stonington) where he became a Selectman. After residing in Mystic within the
         bounds of Stonington for a number of years, he removed with his son, Thomas, Jr., to lands belonging to them
in the northern part of New London, where in 1680 they were recorded as inhabitants.

        In 1681 he was Collector of Taxes for New London. In October, 1686 he was one of the petitioners to the
        Legislature for the incorporation of the town of Preston. This petition was also signed by three of his sons,
        Thomas, Nathaniel, and John. In 1698, he, together with his sons, Robert and John, and nine others,
        organized the first Church of Christ of Preston, and he became its first deacon.

                                  GRIFFITH-LOOMIS FAMILY RECORD


       He died July 30, 1709 after a long and well spent life. His will, dated September 5, 1707 and recorded in
       New London, provided for his wife, Dorothy, for children John, Nathaniel, William, Martha, Dorothy, and
       Alice: for grandson, Samuel, son of Thomas, and grandson, James, son of Robert.

       In New London about 1680 one hundred acres of land in one entire piece were voted to
       Mr. Thomas Parke, Sr., to remunerate him for furnishing cedar clapboards, nails and work for the parsonage
       house. The second entry in the town meeting book of Preston is as follows:

              "1689, Mar. 30 at a town meeting granted to Thomas Parke, Senior, one hundred acres of land    which
       was formerly granted by New London lying on ye east side of gt to sct Parke his land Ve".

from Four Gothic Kings edited by Elizabeth Hallam
      copyright 1987, page 125, Chronicle dated 1283

        A nobleman by the name of John Giffard granted land outside the walls of the city of Oxford, with other estates,
      to support thirteen monks of his choice from Gloucester Abbey, because he wished that Benedictine monks should
      offer prayers perpetually for his soul and that of his late wife, Matilda Longespee.

        (See #29 above. The same people, with errors, or coincidence?)

King John was a Plantagenant.

        Plantagenet, surname, originally nickname, of the English royal house of Anjou or the Angevin
        dynasty, founded by Geoffrey IV, count of Anjou (1113-51), husband of Matilda (1102-67),
        daughter of King Henry I of England. The name is derived from the Latin planta (“sprig”) and
