JAMES, EDWARD V. GLOUCESTER CO. NJ 003 GLCSTRTN TWP JU-AU TX 1795
EV James then went to Lancaster, PA and then on to Cambria Co.
By 1814 E.V. James was living in Harrisburgh, where he could give Gallitzin no further trouble. This from Court House records, in Rec. of Deeds -vol.1, p. 417 "of the Borough of Harrisburgh, Dauphin Co.”. His wife Rachel [Atlee] had died leaving him with a number of children, and he could expect to find help with the children there. His wife’s father was a Justice of the PA Supreme Court.

[NI093830] Capt. Daniel Stoy, who came from Ireland to Lancaster Co., PA, thence to Somerset Co., with the earlier settlers of the northern part of Somerset Co.. He became the owner of a large amount of land, his 1st settlement being the present site of Stoystown, of which he is considered the founder. While he devoted some time to the primitive agriculture of pioneer days, he was at first more of a hunter than farmer. Tradition has it that during Indian troubles he was compelled more than once to leave his mt. home & take refuge at Ft Bedford; also that he killed an Indian from the door of his cabin, which was afterward burned by the savages. It is quite certain that he was a man of good standing & in 1783 was assessor for Quemahoning Twp. At a much later period he served several terms in the PA legislature. He served in the rev. war & held the rank of capt., his co. being known as "Stoy's Riflemen." His wife, Miss Higgins, b. Co. Down, Ireland, as was their dau.

Solomon Engle was witness to the will of Nicholas Beal. These farms are located to the East of Pocahontas between Flaughtery's run on the North & East , PA. MD.line on the south, Greenville Twp. At Conrad Beal's death in 1833 he is listed with 200 acres "more or less" adjoining land of Nicholas Beal , Greenville twp. In the History of Bedford & Somerset Co.s by Welfey, there is a timeline of twp formations. It appears that Greenville Twp.may have never been a part of Southampton Twp.,but originally belonged to Elk Lick Twp. Nicholas BEAL (abt 1773-1857) the s/o Jacob BEAL (1747-1795). The BEAL cem. & the McKenzie cem. are apparently the same. There are several rows of unmarked graves, but there are a number of McKenzie stones. A sign shows it as the BEAL cem. & many local residents know the cem. by this name. Only 1 marked BEAL grave, hard to read, but NOT Nicholas.
