Capt. Jeremiah Blanchard, Jr., b. 10-4-1764; d. 1837; captain in Luzerne County Militia; m. Martha Hutchins, b. 10-22-1766; d. 7-20-1844; settled on land at Port Blanchard, Lot 6, opposite land at Port Blanchard that his father sold him later in 1792. He operated a ferry before 1796. Jeremiah was a blacksmith by trade. He owned a house and shop at Carbondale, Pa. at the time of his death, as well as other lands in Providence Township, also a farm at Hopbottom. He owned and operated, coal mines. In his will, 1837, son John was to operate the mines. He gave him one-half the homestead. Jeremiah,III, had the privilege of operating the ferry.

Jeremiah Blanchard, Jr.. onlv son of Capt. Jeremiah and Abigail Blanchard, was born in November, 1763, presumably in Rhode Island, and was between nine and ten years of age when he came to Wyoming with his parents. In 1790 he was a private in the 4th Company (Daniel Gore, Captain) of the "1st Regiment of Militia in Luzerne County", commanded by Lieut. Col. Matthias Hollenback. Some years later he became a Captain in the State militia. His wife was Martha ■ (born October 12, 1766). He died May 25, 1837, and his wife died July 26, 1844, and their remains lie in the old grave-yard at Port Blanchard. Three of their children were as follows: Jeremiah (married in Wilkes-Barre, Sunday, December 17, 1820, by Peter Winter, Esq., to Frances, daughter of "Sergeant" Thomas Williams, a sketch of whom will be found in a subsequent chapter), John (born in 1800; married in Hanover Township, Luzerne County, Sunday, February 9, 1823, by Samuel Jameson, Esq., to Sarah, daughter of George Lazarus of Hanover Township; she was born in 1803 and. died in 1802; John Blanchard died July 23, 1853), David (married October 0, 1828, to Lydia Sophronia, daughter of Salmon Lathrop, formerly of Sherbourne, New York). The following paragraph is from an obituary of Capt. Jeremiah Blanchard, Jr., published at the time of his death in the W yoming Republican ana Farmer's Herald (Kingston, Pennsylvania). "Among the early settlers of the Valley there were few, if any, who had enjoyed the advantages of regular instruction in the various trades and professions, so necessary to the enjoyment of civilized life. Thus circumstanced, the daily wants of the people were peculiarly calculated to elicit native ingenuity and talent. Among the many whose skill and ingenuity the necessities and the wants of the settlers called into exercise, none was more useful than Captain Blanchard. He possessed quite a mechanical talent, and could turn his hand to the fabrication of most of the necessary implements in wood and iron for the use of settlers in a new country. His residence being at a distance from any practical physician, he was frequently called upon by his neighbors—who fully appreciated his native good sense and sound judgment—for counsel and advice in cases requiring medical aid. Hundreds can attest the skill with which, for many years, he kindly and gratuitously supplied the place of the surgeon in the letting of blood and in the extracting of teeth, among his afflicted neighbors."

The Past and Present
Boonville Boys That Have Made Their Mark
About the year Cornelius B. Erwin started to seek his fortune in the manufacturing state of Connecticut, Benjamin Stickney and Jesse Knight, sons of farmers in moderate circumstances, who had early left their New England homes and sought larger farms in this new country, removed that they would follow the example of their friend and push out into the world. They had not yet acquired their legal majorities, but anticipationg the advice of a latter day philanthropist, advice which has been engraven on the heart and seared into the very brain of thousands and thousands of the youth of the county, that resolved to “go west young man.” Chicago was then in its infancy. The west was an indefinite not any unknown quanity, but they drifted to St. Louis, and the next step in the career of these two Boonville boys, they had become joint proprietors of the Planter House, then the largest and most important hotel in the western country. This was a long stride from their lives upon the wild farms in this new region. At this time the proprietor f a large hotel in a populous city was considered a magnate, his influence was widespread and socially he occupied a commanding position. These young men remained joint proprietors for a term of years. Mr. Knight finally transferred his interest to Mr. Stickner, and returned to this his native place, for which he had ever cherished a warm affection. He bought a farm located very near the ????? regions, and for a time devoted himself to fancy farming. His fine horses would even in this advance age proved the envy and admiration of all lovers of beauty, ????? and good points generally, in that latent development of civilization, a nearly perfect horse. Mr. Knight was a fine type of manly beauty, and a brother of the late Hon. Reuben Knight. He went to California in 1849, a victim of the gold fever which swept over the country, leaving his young wife behind him. Like many others he succumbed to a mortal sickness about the time he intended to return home, and was buried at Panama
