Paternal Ancestry of Sarah (Heath) Palin

Updated 15 Sep 2008


Since posting my original page on the ancestry of Gov. Palin (, which only carried her paternal line as far as her father, I received a number of letters regarding her possible paternal ancestry.  One correspondent, Tom Brown, suggested that #2 was the Charles Richard Heath who according to the California Birth Index was born 24 March 1938 in Los Angeles County (mother Brandt).  Another correspondent, Michael Hurdle, confirmed that identification from obituaries and other documentation and carried the ancestry back further.  The information below on #2 and his ancestors is mostly quoted from Mr. Hurdle’s posts to me, with some minor changes in format.  My own additions appear in this color.  Others provided additional information and are credited in the relevant areas.

NOTE for #s 18-19: message from Tom Brown (dated 5 Sep 2008):

I've done some searching on Francis H. Oriel and discovered that he was married to Ellen Dee on 31 January 1870 at St. Catharines, Niagara, Ontario, Canada.  Both were residents of Rochester, NY


Looking at the 1860 and 1870 census, one can tell that Francis was married before to a woman named Hellen who most likely passed on before 1870.  Francis' children from this first marriage consisted of Eliza Helen "Birdie", Blanche A (possibly died in infancy), Florence, and Emma.  It seems that after Francis married Ellen, that he soon departed for Chicago leaving his three surviving daughters to live with Frank's elder unmarried sister Eliza.  (Source Citation: Year: 1880; Census Place: Rochester, Monroe, New York; Roll: T9_864; Family History Film: 1254864; Page: 426.1000; Enumeration District: 112; Image: 0675.)


The 1900 census record is misleading.  Frank and Ellen (listed as Allna) state they had five children together and been married for 45 years (ca. 1855).  Apparently, Frank was attempting to say that he's been married since 1855 and that he was adding the total number of children he had from both marriages.  So technically, Alice Addie Oriel only had one full blooded sibling - Nellie.


I also found a Frank H. Oriel living at Oak Grove, IL with his third wife Mary (b. ca 1850 in NY) in 1910.  However Frank's age is incorrect.  Should be 77 instead of 67.  However, all other data seems to indicate that this is Gov. Palin's ancestor.  Source Citation: Year: 1910; Census Place: Oak Park, Cook, Illinois; Roll: T624_239; Page: 16B; Enumeration District: 75; Image: 913.


So we can assume that Ellen Dee Oriel passed on before 1910.


And in conclusion:  the Illinois death index states that Frank H. Oriel died at Genoa, De Kalb Co, Illinois on Sept 30, 1916 Certificate #0009684.  No age is given but because his surname is so rare, I'm almost certain this is him.

pp. 37-38

Judge Ernst Brandt, former judge of probate for Brown county, former county commissioner and for twenty-two years editor of the newspaper Fortschritt, at New Ulm, now living retired from the more active duties of life in that city, is a native of Germany, having been born in Roga, by Friedland, Mecklenberg-Strelitz, October 1, 1838, son of Carl Christian and Wilhelmina (Plath) Brandt, both natives of Friedland, who were the parents of four children, of whom the subject of this sketch was the second in order of birth, the others having been Charles C., Fritz and Wilhelmina.


Carl Christian Brandt was the youngest of the four children born to his parents, Julius Brandt and wife, the others having been August, Eda and Theresa. Julius Brandt was a school master and took an active part in local church work in his native land. Both he and his wife died in Germany. Carl C. Brandt was carefully reared and received an excellent education, for some time in his young manhood having been a school teacher in his native land. He was trained to the millwright's craft and became a very proficient artisan in that form of industry. He married in the Fatherland Wilhelmina Plath, youngest of the three children born to her parents, the others having been Hans, who died in New Ulm, this county, and Herman, who is now living, at the age of eighty-four years, in Yakima, Washington.


In the year 1852 Carl C. Brandt and his family came to the United States, locating at Cleveland, Ohio, where they remained until 1856, in which year they came to Minnesota, locating in Brown county, thus being among the pioneers of this county. Carl C. Brandt homesteaded a quarter of a section of land in Sigel township and there established his home, quickly becoming recognized as one of the leading pioneers of the county. He had brought a complete set of millwright's tools with him from Cleveland and shortly after settling here erected on his farm the first grist-mill ever constructed in the state of Minnesota.  This mill was operated by wind power and its great wings for many years were familiar objects in the landscape there. The stone for the buhrs of the mill was taken from the bed of Cottonwood river and for years this substantial old mill faithfully performed its office of grinding the corn of the neighbors for miles about in that vicinity. In addition to his extensive farming and milling operations Carl C. Brandt was active in promoting the general interests of the new community and took a prominent part in civic affairs. He was for years a member of the school board in Sigel township and served the county for some time in the capacity of county commissioner. When well past middle age he and his wife moved from the farm and located in New Ulm, where they spent the remainder of their lives in the comfortable frame house they erected on the site now occupied by the residence of Doctor Fritsche. Mrs. Brandt died at the age of sixty-eight, her husband surviving for some years, he being eighty-one years of age at the time of his death.

An Illustrated History of Los Angeles County, California - Chicago, The Lewis Publishing Company, 1889. Page 618.



Among the prominent capitalists of the East who have located in Los Angeles County, seeking its genial climate, etc., as a desirable place of residence, is the above-named gentleman, who is residing at 317 Grand avenue, Los Angeles.  Mr. Ruddock is largely interested in real estate in the county and is projecting and carrying out some, of the most extensive citrus-fruit planting in the San Gabriel Valley. He is the owner of 1,100 acres of land in the Puente, San Dimas, Glendora and Azusa school districts. Of this choice land 378 acres are located two and a half miles south and west of Glendora and three and a half miles southeast of Azusa. Mr. Ruddock is planting the whole of this tract to citrus fruits. He is sparing neither time nor money in his improvements, and is destined to build up one of the most magnificent orange groves in the United States. Of the 160 acres planted in 1889, he has the following choice varieties: 800 Jaffa, 1,500 Malta Blood, 500 Sanford's Mediterranean, 1,000 Hart's Tardiff, 400 Mediterranean Blood, a large acreage of Washington Navels, ten acres in lemons, and a variety of other citrus fruits, such as Ruby, Jell, etc. He is an enthusiast in his horticultural pursuits, and gives the matter his personal attention. He is seeking and obtaining the choicest varieties of citrus fruits to be obtained, and is planting many varieties heretofore unknown in that section of the San Gabriel Valley. He is the owner of 730 acres of land two miles west of his fruit lands, which is devoted to general farming. Mr. Ruddock is a successful business man and the founder of his own fortune. He is conducting his large horticultural pursuits upon the same basis that has secured his success in the various business enterprises of his life. He is a strong believer in the future wealth and prosperity that awaits the San Gabriel Valley, and recognizes no such word as failure in his enterprise. The brief facts obtained as to Mr. Ruddock's life and business successes are of interest. He is a native of New England, dating his birth in Franklin County, Massachusetts, in February, 1818. In 1831 his father moved to Onondaga County, New York, and was there engaged as a farmer and miller. Mr. Ruddock was reared to farm life, receiving such educational advantages as were afforded by the common schools. In 1842 he determined to strike out in the great West, and in that year located near Racine, Wisconsin, where he took up Government land and commenced life as a pioneer farmer, after which he located at Berlin, Green Lake County. In 1849 he came to California, and for the next four years was engaged in mining in Placer County and on the middle fork of the American River. Returning to Berlin in 1853 he entered into extensive business operations, conducting a large mercantile establishment and lumber business. He also built steamboats and established a packet and freight line on the Fox River and portage to the Wisconsin River, thus establishing water transportation from the Lakes to the Mississippi River. He extended his operations and established large lumber yards in Milwaukee and Chicago, and for twenty years was largely engaged in the manufacture of lumber in Manistee, Michigan, owning a mill and extensive pine lands in that vicinity; was also largely interested in the pioneer railroads of his State and the establishment of banking interests in Berlin. He became one of the most prominent business men in his section, building lake and river steamers, establishing machine shops, foundries, etc. In 1870 he took up his residence in Milwaukee. He was one of the first to raise cranberries in Wisconsin. In 1879 moved to Chicago, where he resided until 1888. In that year he took up his residence in Los Angeles. Mr. Ruddock is a man endowed with a strong constitution, and in early life was reared to industrious and energetic habits. With that as his capital he started in life and success has followed. In 1847 Mr. Ruddock married Miss Maria N. Newell, the daughter of Asa and Nancy M. Newell, of Massachusetts. There are three children living from this marriage, and three are deceased. The son, Charles H., married Miss Sarah Billings; he is now residing in Chicago, and is conducting his business enterprises at that point and in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The two daughters are May B. and Nellie M. Mr. Ruddock's parents were both natives of Massachusetts. They were Justus and Rhoda (Damon) Ruddock.

Calvin RUDDOCK, M D was the son of Edward RUDDOCK who emigrated from Scotland when he was about 18 years of age. His mother was a native of Whately, Mass. Edward enlisted in the American army at Bunker Hill and

served during the war.


Calvin's step-grandfather was STAFFORD, and his grand-father on his mother's side was Thomas SANDERSON and both were soldiers in the Revolutionary war as well.


Edward RUDDOCK first settled in Boston and did milk peddling. Then he moved to Wately, Franklin County MA. After his marriage he moved to the town of Buckland, making his permanent home. His wife's maiden name was Martha SANDERSON. She was 17 at the time of the marriage, her husband being three years her senior.


They lived together for 78 years, Edward being 98 when he died, and Martha being 97 at her death.


Calvin was born Jan 18 1814 in Buckland, Franklin County, MA. His first practice was in the town of Pitcher, Chenango County, New York, which, by the way, is the burial place of all his parents.


His brother was Samuel A. RUDDOCK, at one time a successful merchant in Boston, had only one eye, and was appointed as the Topographical Surveyor for the western country. He experienced a number of adventures in the area

he termed the "Coast Range of the Rocky Mountains." He wrote a letter to his brother, Calvin, relating his experiences with the Indians near Fort Hall and his meeting with Kit Carson after Samuel was captured and released by the Indians.


in 1849 Calvin managed to see Kit Carson at Placerville and spoke to him on the subject. Kit Carson remembered Calvin's brother and there are some more tales regarding Samuel's sojourn in CA and finding gold prior to Marshall's

discovery in 1848.


Calvin left NY state in 1848 because of the letters from his brother. He tried to keep the information regarding the gold a secret but was unable to do so. He traveled to Wisconsin and practiced medicine for a year and then continued on when Marshall's discovery of gold was announced.


He finally arrived in Sacramento in 1849, on the site of the old French Hotel on Front Street. Then he went to  Placerville where he mined and practiced medicine. In the Fall of 1851 he came to the Sacramento Valley and

made his home there.


He first located on the Monument ranch on the west side of the Sacramento River, eight miles above the city. About 1857 he bought land at Willow Slough, half way between Woodland and Davisville, near where Merritt's

ORAN ALLAN KELLEY. Robert Kelley (I), the progenitor of Oran Allan Kelley, in Worcester county, was probably a descendant of the Kelley family of Boston, which was among the earliest in that town. Edward Kelley came to Boston on the "Hopewell" in April 1635, and settled in Boston. He had a son Edward, born November 4, 1664. He was, very likely, a relative of David Kelley, also of Boston. Elizabeth was the name of the wives of both. There was a Robert Kelley (Calley) in Charlestown about the same time, who left descendants, and who for several generations used this spelling, which was common in the Worcester county family, also down to recent times.

   David Kelley settled first on Hog Island in Boston Harbor, but bought a place in town, May 13, 1656. He died in 1662. His widow married Robert Smith, seaman, of Boston.....


(I) Robert Kelley, of Charlton, was the great-grandfather of Oran A. Kelley, of Worcester. He bought the farm, November 27, 1764, but seems to have lived in Charlton before purchasing this place. He had relatives there, as Richard Kelley was witness of some of his papers. David Kelley, of Upton, the adjoining town. There were Kelleys in Hopkinton, early; Hopkinton adjoins Upton.

   Although it is difficult and perhaps impossible to trace the line from Robert Kelley to the emigrant, there is no great doubt that the family is of English descent, that the Charlton settler was descended from the Boston family, and that other members of the family settled in Middlesex county from 1730 to 1760, when the movement of population from the old colonial towns was going on actively.

   Robert Kelley was a leading citizen of Charlton. When the revolution broke out he was lieutenant of the militia company of which Benjamin Richardson was captain. They were drafted from General Jonathan Warner's brigade to serve in the seige of Boston. In 1776 he was lieutenant of the same company, in Colonel Nicholas Dike's regiment. The records show that he marched with his regiment, September 26, 1777, to reinforce the Continental army under General Gates, in the northern department. He served during the greater part of the war.

   He married Ruth Wheelock (intentions declared September 22), 1759. He married (second) Lydia Marrs, of Western (Warren), Massachusetts, (intentions dated September 5,), 1771. The children of Robert and Ruth (Wheelock) Kelley were Abigail, born 1757; Chapin, born 1759, married Sally Thompson, 1793; Rachel, born about 1761; Joel, born 1764; he became a prominent man and dealt extensively in real estate, as the records show. The children of Robert Kelley and Lydia, his wife, were: Ruth, married Asa Newell, October 24, 1790; Mary, born 1772, married Thomas Town, April 27, 1794; Lydia, born 1774, married Isaac Patrick, of Western;  Robert, born 1776, married Lucretia -----, at Barre; Henry, born in 1778; William, born in 1780.  Abner Kelley, born 1783, mentioned below, (was a baby at the time of his father's death. Edward Wheelock, relative of their mother, was appointed guardian of Joel, Chapin and Abigail Kelley. The father's will was dated May 30, 1783, and proved July 1, 1783. Richard Kelley, possibly Richard's father, was a witness of the will and, to judge from the handwriting, was a very aged man. The guardian for the younger children was appointed at the same time. The records of the family were obtained from the probate records, the town records not giving birth, though it seems probable that the children were all born in Charlton -- certainly all but one or two of the older ones).
