General Notes: Recollection of sayings of the parents of Martha Geraldine Wells and Margaret Wells and (88-0004) "If at first, you don't succeed, try, try again. If you can't say something nice about someone don't say anything. Don't judge a book by its cover. If you take it--you eat it. You can take a hourse to water but you can't make him drink. You can't teach an old dog new tricks. You can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear. Don't cry over spilt milk. One bad apple spoils the barrel. Wah'ts done, is done. As a twig is bent so grows the tree. Don't talk with your mouth full. Don't speak 'til you're spoken to. Idle hands are the devil's workshop. Roads to hell are paved with good intentions. Monkey see, monkey do. Children are to be seen and not heard. The only dumb question is the question you don't ask. The Lord helps those who help themselves. Good things come in small packages. Time waits for no man. Has the cat got your tongue? Raining cats and dogs. Grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence. A fool and his money are soon parted. A watched pot never boils. Mouth's dry enough to spit cotton. Don't get your feathers ruffled. Don't "sass" your elders. The old gray mare ain't what she used to be. Spare the rod, spoil the child. Sticks and stones may break my bones but dirty names will never harm me. Make hay while the sun shines. Save it for a rainy day. Whistle while you work. If you cross your eyes the'll stay that way. If you make a face it will freeze that way. If you want to be alittle lady you sit with your legs crossed and your skirt over your knees. Don't use a toothpick in public. You don't scratch in public. You don't comb your hair in public. If your right hand itched -- company coming. If your left hand itched -- going to get money. Drop spoon, fork or knife -- company coming (child, woman, or man) A disappointment may be a bitter pill but you swallow it anyway. Swallow your pride. Experience is a hard teacher. A bird in hand is worth two in the bush. A little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing. Education is something no one can take away from you. He doesn't have enough sense to come in out fo the rain. They fight like cats and dogs. We'll be there 'til the cows come home. We'll get ther if the creek don't rise. Went to bed with the chickens. Drunk as a skunk. Lips that touch liquor will never touch mine. Red sky at morning sailors take warning- Red sky at night, sailors delight. If the shoe fits, wear it. Your bark is worse than your bite. Pride goes before a fall. They are both tarred with the same brush. It's like the pot calling the kettle black. He who laughs last, laughs best. Give them an inch and they'll take a mile. It smells to high heaven. It'll be a cold day in July. When hell freezes over. Cut off his nose to spite his face. Rob Peter to pay Paul. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Familiarity breeds contempt. Out of sight, out of mind. Dead men tell no tales. Its just sour grapes. Bad news travels fast. Politics makes strange bed fellows. Birds of a feather flock together. You can't ell a book by its cover. Its a horse of another color. Feed a fever and starve a cold (or vice versus). A diller, a dollar, a ten o'clock scholar. He's not dry behind the ears yet. Still wet behind the ears. If in doubt, don't. Let your conscience be your guide. He who hesitates is lost. Don't play with fire. Too many coolks spoil the broth. From rags to riches. There'll be the piper to pay. Don't cross your bridge 'till you come to it. Don't burn your bridges behind you. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Don't count your chickens before they hatch. Your always the last to know. Button up your overcoat. Between you, me and the gatepost. He who dances must pay the piper. Sugar catches more flies than vinegar. Let a smile be your umbrella. Son't wear your heart on your sleeve. Every cloud has a silver lining. A couple three. Don't eat like a pig. No snese in locking the barn door after the horse is gone. Feeling his oats. Penny wise, pound foolish. More than you can shake a stick at. Consider the source. You can't be a winner all the time. Straighten up and fly right. It takes two to make an argument. The means don't justify the end. Virtue is its own reward. It really "rang a bell". Sharp as a tack, shiny as a dollar Last one in is a rotten egg. Bad penny always comes home. Birds always come home to roost. Take the last "piece" and you'll be an old maid. Don't do anything you wouldn't want shouted from the public square. Don't run it in the ground. Still water runs deep. Don't toot your own horn. Get on your soap box. Bee in her bonnet. Ants in her pants. Honesty is the best policy. Penny saved is a penny earned. Granddad Wells: More ____ than a cat has fleas. He would say about foods, "if its too hard you soften it with butter, if its too soft, you hardent it with butter. Grandmother Barton: I don't know, I don't care- the object in question stayed there 'til you did know or care!

1903-1947 Elected to Ciruit Clerk for Montgomery Co.

"Since 1892 Everett Barton has served as circuit clerk for Montgomery, this being his fifth consecutive four-year term. During this time he has proved himself to be a man of thorough reliability--always a man of his word--and his friends, who are many, speak of him in terms of the highest regard. He is a native son of Montgomery County, having been born in Americus on his father's farm. His father was Joseph Barton, a native of Pennsylvania, whose death occurred in 1871. In 1851, during the gold rush, he went to California, and ten years later, during the Civil War period, bought a farm in Montgomery on which he resided until his death. For many years he conducted a country store and he also served as a justice of the peace for some time. He was licensed United States Internal Revenue Gauger, and while residing in Kansas in 1858, immediately following his marriage, he was lieutenant of cavalry in the state troops. It was on the 16th of December, 1858, in Richmond county, Ohio, that Joseph Barton was married to Adaline Reiff, a native of Richmond, Ohio, whose father was for many years engaged in farming in Ohio. She was an aunt of the celebrated jockies, Lester and Johnny Reiff. Lester won the English derby for W. C. Whitney, and Johnny won two English derbies. The paternal grandfather of Everett Barton, was David Barton, who was born near York, Pennsylvania, where he engaged in farming until his death. He was a son of Dorothea Umberger[ed. note by RJC 7/1995-I think this is incorrect. Perhaps transcription missed a sentence or writing was incorrect. I believe David Umberger was Everett's great grandfather. Evidence indicates John Barton was Everett's grandfather.], a daughter of John George Marsch [sic - should be Maisch] who came to America, landing in this country on the 16th of October, 1751. The Marsch [sic -Maisch] family lived principally near Frankfort, Indiana. "In the acquirement of an education, Everett Barton attended the public schools of Montgomery county until he reached the age of sixteen years at which time he put his textbooks aside and secured employement in the store of W. A. Crockett at Americus, where he remained for a period of twelve years. His position was that of general clerk. This store had been established by his father, Joseph Barton, some years before. During the years, 1889-1893, he, in connection with James J. Merritt, operated a country store at Mineola, Montgomery county, and in this venture achieved a substantial success. In 1894 Mr. Barton was elected county treasurer in which office he served for one term, and in 1897, he left for the Klondike in the spirit of adventure. The published account of his trip reads like a romance, for in this land he passed through the hardships and adventures of which one reads, and he met many of the world's celebrated men, among them Jack London with whom he corresponded until the former's death. Mr. Barton spent fifty-four days packing his equipment through the Chilkoot Pass, and he spent two years in that wonderful country, prospecting and mining. In August of the year, 1899, he returned from the Klondike and resumed his position in the general store at Americus for two years. In 1892 he was nominated and elected circuit clerk for Montgomery county and has since held that position, now serving his fifth consecutive four-year term, which has broken the record for this office. In every election but one he has led his ticket, and he has never had opposition in his own party. "On May 21, 1893, Mr. Barton was united in marriage to Miss Georgia E. Huddleston, a daughter of Dr. David B. Huddleston, of Mineola, Montgomery county, who for many years practiced his profession throughout the county and was recognized as one of the most able and progressive physicians of his day. His wife before her marriage was Miss Florence Taylor, a native of Virginia. Two children have been born to the union of Mr. and Mrs. Barton. Joseph C. Barton is a mining engineer in charge of the Griesemer Graphite Company of Ashland, Alabama. His position is that of general manager and he has full charge of the work. He married Miss Jewel Evans, a native of Montgomery and they have one daughter, Mildred Jackquelin. Catherine Barton is at present finishing her course at Stevens College, Columbia, Missouri. "Since age conferred on Mr. Barton the right of franchise, he has been a staunch support of the republican party. Mr. Barton was reared in the faith of the Methodist church and his wife is a Baptist. Fraternally his is a Knight of Pythias and belongs to Willsville Lodge No. 102. Mr. Barton has always been more or less interested in farming, and he is owner of a fine farm in Manitoba, Canada, located about one hundred and fifty miles northwest of Winnipeg, on a beautiful lake, which he bought as a speculative proposition. The popularity of Mr. Barton is manifest in his continuous service as a circuit clerk of Montgomery county, and one of the judges of the St. Louis court of appeals has pronounced him to be the most efficient clerk in his district. Mr. Barton is deeply interested in all that has to do with the material, intellectual and moral progress ofhis community and his cooperation can be counted upon to further any project or enterprise for the public good."

Obituary, Montgomery Standard, July 7, 1955
"Everett Barton, son of Adaline and Joseph barton was born at Americus, Montgomery County Missouri, on November 2nd, 1868: and died of coronary thrombosis at the Audrain Hospital in Mexico, Missouri on July 2, 1955--age 86 years and 8 months. He was married to Georgia Huddleston on May 21st, 1893. Three children were born of this union, one son dying in infancy. Mr. and Mrs. Barton have made thier home in Montgomery City for fifty-three years: forty-six of which Mr. Barton spent in the service of his county, he having served as Circuit Clerk for 44 years, from 1903 to 1947, and as County Treasurer two years prior to that. Mr. Barton was a charter member of Kiwanis a kind neighbor and friend and a devoted husband and father. He is survived by his wife of sixty-two years; one son Joseph Barton, of tucson, Arizona; one daughter Catherine Barton Wells, of Jacksonville, Illinois; six grand-children, seven great-grand-children; and one half brother, Barton Baker, of Americus. A brother, Lincoln Barton, and a sister, Mrs. Minnie Ward , preceded him in death. We can truly say the community has lost a faithful citizen and that a good man has gone to his reward."

General Notes: Copy of letters from Joe J. Taylor and Florence Susan Taylor to Georgie and Everett Barton from:

"Pala, California January 22, 1931 Dear Georgia, and family:- "I take "Unks" pen in hand, (because I have none) and will endeavor to drop you a line (hope you can read it) to thank you for the nice remembrance we received when we returned from Forest's. I am not used to such nice paper and it has been years since I wrote with a pen and when you begin to get old you will find a typewriter does not get so nervous as a pen. "I have just finished sweeping and thought I could sit down here by fireplace and write with a pen but it is about the hardest job I have tackled for some time; as this pen is not hitting on all four I find: so here goes to the machine I think you can read it easier. [switch from handwritten to typewritten] "I meant to write Everet that I think he owes me an election debt- I forgot he was running and did not ask anyone to vote for him and so made him no enemies, if I had thought to ask some folks I am sure if I recommended him to them they would have voted against him so he owes me something for keeping still for once in my life. "Glad to know you had nice Christmas, we did, and for the first time in twenty years we visited at Christmas some of our folks, it made it seem more like a holiday. We found Forests folks well but Forest Jr. is complaining, he is staying in Willows going to school, taking some special work, has decided he wants to study medicine now, he will be all right if he will diet and get rid of Diabetes which is not bad so far, and he looks well and is gaining weight. "We left here on Dec. 22, and staid over night in Riverside with DaVaults, they were smudging-had to light fires in their orchards, they burn oil and it was so smokey when we started out of town at nine that we had to put on our lights, drove to Bakersfield for the next night, then to near Sacramento for next and staid in a camp there and next morning the water was frozen in pipes and we could get no water for drinking or to wash our faces, so drove to Sacramento by ten and could get no water at filling station they were still frozen, went on to Forests by about three oclock- Lou and Mary were busy as usual, they had both been in school till the day before, we had nice Christmas eve and Christmas day with them, took a drive and went to Chico in afternoon to a picture show, had other nice drives- went out to a ranch Sunday afternoon to see that Old Bass negro that had just returned from Mo. and had called on your mother, he was full of his trip and we got the low down on Mo. "We left there early Monday and came back to Modesto to look for Cousin Lucy McConnell- your mother can tell you who she is if you do not know- but as usual we could not find her at her last address, so went to Ceres and found Cousin Etha McKnight and then found Cousin Lucy and her married son, staid over night with her. Came to Bakersfield and staid again with my Cousin C. J. Patterson and brought his wifes mother home to Los A- next day and we went on to Santa Ana and staid over night with Miss Addie, and old chum of Sister Ibbie's, she is eight one, we had spent New Years eve with her four out of the five we have been down here, came home New Years day. "It has been quite cold here for our part of the country, our geraniums have not frozen yet, but the morning glory vines were caught in Dec., and other tender vines frosted too. I do not think the oranges around here have been hurt.

"Pala, California December 21, 1931 Dear Georgie and Everett: "I haven't forgotten you and this is Christmas, I haven't sent you a present since even this is the time of the great "depression" (I guess you have heard of it, we hear little else in this country now.) but as I have the two cents, time, and this paper is furnished by the Government, I really have no excuse for not writing except just plain "onriness", this is plain evidence that I think of you. I really and truly wish you were here to spend the Holidays with us. Everett, we'd go to San Diego, take the ladies, and since it is only 16 miles from here to Tia Juana, Mexico, while the ladies were window shipping in San Diego we'd drive down to Tia Juana and take a look at some of the signoritas who inhabit that famous or rather infamous border city, and say, boy you could get a drink of real beer, certainly you would not expect me to indulge, and you would not have to. You could just take a few glances at the dusky Mexican ladies, and watch the horses, you know this is the racing seasonnow, and I am reliably informed there is any season of the year to be found at any time you may choose to be there. "Since it does not appear that we can be together this Christmas we wish you all a very pleasant and happy Christmas, and as you will no doubt be with Catherine and her family a part of the time we know you will enjoy the holiday. Give Catherine and her little family my very best love and good wishes. I would so much like to again see them all. I enjoyed the little visit with them when we were last back in that part of the country. I have some hopes that we may come back this next summer, and if we do I am planning on driving back and as it is entirely possible that after June 30, 1932 I will be out of a job time will be about all I will have and should I have the wherewith to buy gasoline and oil, the water and air is free even in California, driving will help to pass away the time. You perhaps know that by act of Congress I was retired last June but upon reconsideration they decided that the Service would suffer if I got out they extended my time for a year. You perhaps know that Government employees are now retired at 65 years of age and I reached that age last June 12th. I guess they let me hold the job a year longer so I could get over the depression. The can if they want to give me another year. I do not know if I will ask for it. I have always wanted to drive a car back on a trip to Missouri. Look out I may come. "I would much prefer to have you folks come out here, I think it would be much nicer to have you visit us, and no doubt you are agreed so come along and I will put off my trip. Martha wrote us that Joe and his family had gone to New York to reside, I certainly would like to see them but doubt if I ever do now. Yet just a short time ago one of Stell's nephews by marriage from New York came by to see us and we werenot at home, never had seen him. it was too bad we had to be away from home just at that time. Better let us know if you are coming and we will stay at home. "My walnuts were not worth sending so far this year soyou need not look for any nuts this year. There are more "NUTS" in California than any place I have ever seen but since they are most all like my walnuts, of inferior quality, I wont send any of them either. "Since Stell has perhaps written you all of the gossip and it is late I have been on a trip just a little under 100 miles to-day and the hour is late I will bring this letter to a close. "Hope you will reciprocate in kind and write me a letter for my Holiday present. It wont cost much and I will appreciate just yes more, as much as if it cost money. I wish you all of the good things and none of the bad for Christmas and throughout the New Year. "Our love to you all. UNK. Joe J.

"Dear Georgie & Everett: [undated letter] "Got your letter, do not know what your Auntie has written you but guess most of it is true. Was intending to write you a letter but got switched off on some Indians and Mexicans and it is now too late for this mail. "Hope you are all well and have recovered from the Holiday festivities. I see by the California papers that all of you people in the Middle West -- Mo. Ark., Ill., Iowa, etc., are about to starve to death, which I know is not the actual truth, but really are the people, many of them really in need of necessities, I mean people who ever did have anything, of course I know a few Like Jack Sweazy and some of the Negroes are never very flush. You know I have seen several periods of hard times, drouth [sic], etc., but have never yet seen a time when country people such as I grew up with who lacked the necessities of life. It is really hard times here, many out of work and no jobs to get., people walking the country asking for rides, handouts, etc., but they do not have quite so hard times here since all of them carry their beds and it is not cold and sleeping quarters may be had most any place in this country and not get overcrowded as there is lots of room here. "We spend Christmas with Forrest and family, had a very pleasant visit, coming, going, and while there. All of them quite well. It was quite cold while we were up that way, but clear and pleasant, no rain not even fog, just simply cold. In the Orange districts they had to keep the smudge pots going every night for some two weeks or more to keep the oranges from freezing on the trees, but you wont see anything in the papers about it. "My best love to you ALL. Let us hear from you, or better come out and spend a good long visit with us, as long as you can stand it. Thanks for the Christmas remembrance, you see how I appreciate it since this letter is written on some of it. Lovingly, old Unk. Joe" [on the back of the undated letter] "Unk went to see a sick Indian this morning and a Mexican woman came to see him just now to get him to cut a needle out of her hand, she was here last night but he put her off till morning, and then left before she came. "I suppose Unk will be retired next June, he asked for an extension of two years, but they have not been granting extensions; so do not know if he will be retired or not. If he retires I suppose we will be at home to our friends in Riverside, we may remodel our shack up there and settle down for a good time when our relatives and friends visit us. "Our walnuts turned out better than last year, we had something like 3500 pounds, wished we might have sent you folks more but the postage is more than the value of the nuts. "Lou gave me a gunny sack full of nice grape fruit to bring home- we certainly are enjoying them. Forest gave me a small rug and silk hose, I told them I thought I would come again soon. Forest gave Unk a nice wool sweater. "I had to stop and move my machine up to the fire I went to a Ford Show in Oceanside and came home and felt as if I might be taking a cold, so many around here are having it. "Last week Dr. had to take his car- the Govt. one to have it fixed in Oceanside, he had to leave it till next day, so I took him down to get it and I drove our car home, it was the first time I had driven alone with this new make of Ford, but I got along all right, so when you come out I will take you for a joy ride. When are you coming???? "I thought I would do a lot of work this week but a traveling Govt. Dr. and wife were here Sunday and said they would be back for some work Monday and then again Tuesday, so I could not get to tack my comfort that I had meant to tack, then I went to Oceanside yesterday and have a cold today, so I may get started to work next week or the week after. "While in Bakersfield I went with C. J. and wife to a publick installation of officers inthe masonic lodge, Jane sang on their program, she is very good too. I enjoyed it very much. Unk did not feel good so sat by fire and read while we were gone, he says he seems to get sea sick when he first starts out to drive long distance over crooked roads, after he got over that was all right, but I had headache when we got to Forests Christmas eve. "Will leave other side for a word from Unk when he gets home. Again let me thank you for the nice box of stationery, especially as I can use it in typewriter. Love to all- Aunt Stell- P.S. Did Cathy's children get box of dates from Unk? He ordered them in Nov. to be sent later."

"Pala, Calif. April 1, 1932 Dear Georgia:- "We are anxious to hear from your mother, the last we heard she was getting better and we hope she continued to do so. "Unc is feeling fine for his years, he went up to other reservation- some 20 odd miles to see a sick baby- we have been away for several days, went to Saboba Indian Hospital then on to Riverside and got home last evening, Mr. and Mrs. Ed DaVault brought us home as we had no car with us. "I think Unc will quit this place in June, the work is not hard but it is too hard to have to listen to their tales of woe, especially after hearing them for so many years. "There was a circus in Riverside yesterday, It was hard to get Unc and Ed by the grounds, but we brought them on down here, we let Ed go back suppose?? he took it in in evening. "I want to go to Oceanside today if Unc is not too tired to make the drive after his trip this morning. "Did Forest come home? We have not heard from them for so long- they wont answer letters. Unc does not write them very often either. "I will leave the other side for Unc to write a note if he has time. "Let us hear from all soon- Aunt Stell. "P.S. Georgia do not work too hard and get yourself in bed. Get some help, I know caring for a sick and keeping two houses going must be some job. [on the back of this letter from Stell] "Dear Georgie & All: "Just got back from my trip and have few minutes before mail time so will add a line to Auntie's letter. "I got your letter regarding your mother, glad to know that she was to say the least no worse and since I have had no further word feel very much in hopes that she is improving, certainly hope so, let me hear from you as often as you have time, tell her I hope she recovers soon and that I would come back but I have been having flue a short time back and was not feeling any too good and was just a little afraid to make the trip back into your country at this time of year, since it is now here just about like your summertime. I have seen the time that I would not think of such things as a change in climate. "From your letter I think I go quite an insight into your mother's sickness, I judge from what you said that I have had some several cases of the same trouble two or three not so long since and they were in younger people and they were ordinarilly strong and healthy, but they were so sick and prostrated for several days that it looked as if they might die at any hour, however, with no better care than your old Unk could give them they got well and have had no further attacks since, two of the worst cases I had it has been some two years now since they recovered, but it took them quite a while to pull out of the attack. Give Florence my love and tell her I very much hope she will get well and will come back I hope, soon and make a visit. Time is up for mail. "Love to you all and let me hear from you soon. Unk. Joe J."

"Riverside, California 3234 Allen Place, December 20, 1932 Dear Georgie and Everett: "Since I am long on time and short on many other things I am going to draw on my largest asset and try to contribute to your Holiday good cheer by writing you a letter. We hope the Christmas Season is bringing to you both a large measure of pleasure and satisfaction and that the New Year will bring to you increased Health, Happiness, and a large measure of material Prosperity, throughout. We shall ask you to extend to Catherine and her family our love and best wishes. "We haven't heard from any of you since we came back, but hope you are all well. Since returnig to Sincust California we have located ourselves at least for the present in rented quarters, very comfortable and convenient, have a nice five room cottage, furnished at a very reasonable rent, may before long make other arrangements for living but if one did not own any property it would be cheaper to rent altogether and it is not any trouble to find any sort of property to rent and mostly at your own figure. If you care to purchase you can do that at your own price. I doubt if California has ever, at least not for many years had such a slump in business, even the election has not so far caused a ripple on the surface. I did not look for such a manifestation but many thought it would happen. I have ot even been offerec a glass of beer or wine though no doubt I could have found some of each. "We have been having a taste of real winter lately, snowed all over the country for one whole day and part of the night about like it does in Missouri sometimes but it did not lay on the ground to any depth except on the highlands and mountains, near us are some rather high mountains and the snow is heavy. The cold so far has not done much damage to citrus fruit and groves, the storm has passed and the sun is again shining and the weather balmy. We are both fairly well except I have had a cold for some days, not to serious but many have been having what is supposed to be flu but of a very light nature. I see you fols have also had quite a touch of winter. "Auntie is enclosing the only negative that was any good of those taken on the trip to Arkansas, this below the dam at Mammoth Springs, I guess you recognize it. Everett, I don't know which is the biggest, the dam, the river bed, or some of the folks, don't get sore now Georgie, I'm in the picture. I have many pleasing recollections of my visit this summer with all of you folks, now Georgie it is your time to come out to see us, if Everett wont come let him board with---well, there are a number of places he could eat whle you are away, so come along, we have plenty of room for both of you though if you will come, we'd so much love to have some of you people visit us here. "Well, I got to take my wife up town so willhave to quit. Write us. Our regards to all friends and love to you all. Merry Christmas. Sincerely, Unk & Auntie. Joe J. Taylor" [on the back of the Dec 20, 1932 letter - poem written by Georgia Huddleston Barton Sunset and evening star And one clear call for me And may there be no moving of the bar, when I put out to sea But such a tide as moving seems to sleep, too full for sound or foam, when that which forward the boundless deep, Turns again home Twilight and evening Bell, And after that the dark And may there be no sadness of Fanuill? when I embark For tho from out our bourne of time & place, The flood may bear me far I hope to meet my Pilot face to face when I have crossed the Bar.

"Riverside, California 1879 Linden Street Feb'y., 12, 1936 Dear Georgie & Everett: "I am going to give you a thrill of the year by answering your letter of January 3, 1936. I find also that you had written a card just a few days previous, so you see I do not have to tell you that I appreciate your letters. I just looked them both up to refresh my memory. The day, Sunday after Christmas, which you said was spent with your grand children, etc., we were that day at Artois with your Bro and family. Day after Christmas we filled up with gas and oil and beat it up north, stopped first night at Bakersfield, that day on the last 40 miles of road into Bakersfield there was, as I remember some 14 wrecks, resulting in several deaths, we fortunately saw only about 2 or 3 of them which was enough, all of them over before we arrived, saw only the results. It made you half in the notion to go back home, but we didn't, went on and the next night stayed near Stockton with some cousins from W.Va. now living in California. We stopped to call on them and found that one cousin "Lucy" was sick so upon the very cordial invitation of this cousin we stayed overnight with them and went out in the country to see the sick cousin, found her better, but since have heard she was not expected to live. The next day we drifted on through Sacramento arriving at Forrest's in the afternoon. It was just 538 miles from my place. Found them all well and enjoying the Holiday season. Mary V. was home from San Francisco for the Holidays, Forrest jr. stays at Artois, he and his wife have a nice cottage near the store and he works in the store, he is in a fair state of health and has a fine little woman for a wife and he is a pretty decent lad. Lou was having her Christmas school vacation of some two weeks and enjoying life and was just as nice as could be, as she always is. Forrest was just as usual, tickled crazy to have us come to see them and did everything possible to make us have a good time. Mary V. is one of the finest young ladies that I have ever seen, she is beautiful, accomplished, sensible, young lady, a lovely personality, knows what she wants to do and how to go about doing it. "Well, we had a fine visit, when we arrived Lou had the remains of a 25 pound turkey which they had had for Christmas, at least half of it, we fared on that until on New Years Day she cooked another turkey that some one had given her, some of her country friends, and which she had dressed and on ice during the Christmas holidays, and in addition to this some of their friends out in the country had "butchered" and sent them a whole mess of country spare ribs and back-bone---yes, we made it home, I had to leave in self defense, we left the day after New Year. Certainly had a fine visit but it rained nearly all the time we were up there and nearly all the way home, part of the time just poured, we thought how nice it would be to arrive home and find that we also had had lots of rain which we badly needed, but found we had had only a light sprinkle. Just now the past week or ten days we have been having some real rains which have been very badly needed, up to date our rainfall for the year had been very light. Since we came home both of us have had a spell of "flu" "or sumpin", I laid up for a week, not too sick but not well enough to cavort about too much, then your Auntie tried her hand at it, but at present both of us seem to be about normal. This morining I had a sort of "fling" with my heart, result I think of indigestion, made me feel like I might kick off, but I didn't, I had seen perhaps hundreds of similar capers in other people and as none of them died I did not get excited, in fact I have had it several times in my life when my digestion had been croweded too much. "I was glad to hear that Catherine and her family were well, also that you are in fair health also. You folks surely must be having one of the old-time winters since I notice in my paper to-night that you still have snow and zero weather---Herbert Hoover is making a political speech as I write this letter. He seems to be removing Mr. Roosevelts' hide and hanging it on a pole to dry, but that is natural in politics on election years and I do not get excited over either side, since I recall that it has been less than four short years since Mr. Hoover was having his own hide floating to the breezes, so why worry, if he wants it hung up again it is no affair of mine, if he gets burnt again it will be his fault this time. "Forget it". "You said Joe was in California, might be here for some time, where is he? If he gets near Riverside and does not come to see me I shall--well, I wont express myself on the subject, however, you can tell him that we shall certainly expect him to see us if he comes near about. "Now, that I have written you this letter, "dumb" if you know what it is all about, but you can know that I still keep you on my list of "preferred" relatives and friends, so when you get in the notion to come to California you will have a place to "light". We still live at the same place, found our house and all trees, house-hold goods as we had left them, well really two or three trees had broken pretty badly because of heavy crop of nuts. I put five tons of nuts through the packing house, the best crop I had ever had, price fair----This is now tomorrow so far as this letter is concerned, since what was written up to here was typed last evening. I gave out either from writing or listening to the political gabble, went to bed, slept all night, just had my breakfast, and it is 9:10 a.m. and I feel fine, poured rain all night last night and is still raining this morning, I do not think that I have seen such a rainfall as we are having the past few days since 1926. The worst part of it is that California will be compelled to have "Federal Aid" for damage done, haven't seen the paper this morning to find out if a delegation from the Chamber of commerce is on the way to Washington to see the President if not they are getting ready to start and the Governor will go along if he can leave his new wife. You know in California when we want Federal Funds we are all Democrats from the Gov. down, then as soon as we get on the train and start back home we start "Panning" the President the administration for spending so much money, this is a great life and not half bad at that. Personally I prefer living in a country with Republicans and Democrats rather than round-head nazis, gabbling facists, or Russian communists, etc. Lets forget it? "If you think this will do for an excuse of a letter I'll quit. It should since I have covered the whole category, civil, political, social, economic, and now religious as I expect to take your auntie down to the church this p.m. for some functional duty, while she "functs" I will drive around town or "sum;in". "She" says tell you that she will write next time as I want to get this off in the mail. Give my love to Catherine and her family, your ma and all kin, and friends if you can locate them or if the is such animals now extant, and you can reserve for your own personal use a large portion of sentiment, love, high regard, etc., etc. Put this down now as letter No. 1 for the year 1936. No, I am not writing this with the idea in view of coming back to Missouri this year, want to paint my house this year, so I'll stay home and you can come out and I'll take you to the San Diego Fair even though I paint my house. "Write us, come see us. Your Loving Uncle and Auntie. Joe J. Taylor"

"Riverside, California "September 26, 1938 "My dear Georgia and Everett: "Don't fall over. I'm writing you, presumably because I am just getting my second wind. Dropped you a partnership card from Virginia City in Nevada in July when we visited Jewell and Jackie and I was going to say Joe, but he had to leave the day before we arrived and did not get back before we left, then first of this month they left Reno presumably for good to locate amy-be-so in California, headed for Riverside for a visit, both of them, Joe had to switch on the way down. Jewel came on alone stayed about ten days expecting him all the time and the first thing she knew he telegraphed her that he was in Reno and headed for New York and for her to drive up to reno and go with him. It was over 500 miles of all desert, only about one town for more than 100 miles so we would not let her drive it alone and she left her car and the dog and went on the bus, got through in good time but had to make a 50 mile detour on the bus on account of storm. They left last Monday for New York and you will likely see them on the way back I think. They can tell you. We certainly enjoyed the 10 days with Jewell but disappointed that Joe never arrived as he expected. Consequently we have two each cars and dogs. Jewell can tell you all about it when you see her, if any. "I hope you are both well and enjoying life. We are as usual. I see Everett is again running for C.C. Guess you'll get it again. After laying around for some time, 4 or 5 years thought I'd start out again so am well on my way to a political career. I'm enclosing a card which is self-explanatory. This card was for nomination but in my case means election since I have no opposition at general election except "write in". You will understand Everett my office &c. Our Council consists of 7 members, a city of over 35,000. I was high man on all of the city candidates, beat a woman opponent incumbent. I consider it quite a honor and that is about the biggest thing in it except responsibility and "cussing". But I hope to live over it and will feel natural again. I may go on to Mayor if I get young enough. ????. "Letter from Jackie today, she and baby well and getting on fine, had card from Jewell on the way, two in fact. Will see her when they get back. Georgie you had better come along with them and see your old Unk the City Alderman, some boy eh. "Got company must stop. Our love and best wishes to you both and regards to all friend if any. Write us once again for a trial. "Lovingly your Unk. Joe J. Taylor"

Barton, - was born December 30, 1861; also a sister, Exmenia Barton, known as Minnie Barton, was afterward intermarried with one John Ward,-was born in the State of Kansas. About the year 1863, Joseph Barton and family, removed to Montgomery County, Missouri, as the Records in the Recorder's Office of said county, show, that on September 13, 1863, in SUPPLIED RECORD "A" at Page 473, he purchased from one Abraham Baldwin, 260 acres of real estate situate in Section 2, Township 46, Range 6, West, of said County. Lincoln C. Barton, born December 30, 1861, and now past the age of 74 years.-and coming to Missouri with his parents about the year 1863, shows conclusively that he is past the age of Seventy (70) years. The Records in the Recorder's Office of Montgomery County, Mo., at Danville, then the County seat of said county, having been destroyed by fire in the year 1901, -Marriage License Record No. 2, in which the Marriage License of Lincoln C. Barton and Fannie Ellis was recorded,-was likewise destroyed. Lincoln C. Barton and Fannie Barton, nee Ellis was, to my personal knowledge married in the year 1882." [letter written by Everett Barton]

From: William E. Connelley, A Standard History of Kansas and Kansans, Lewis Publishing Co., New York, Vol. 2, 1918 (ancestry.com) p.767 "Finding that he [Gov. Carney] would be obliged to depend upon his own resources, he investigated the situation thoroughly. The state had no money, no arms and no ammunition, but this did not discourage him. On visiting the menaced regions he found that the people were beginning to seek places of greater safety, and he foresaw the probability that the region would become a desert, unless decisive steps were immediately taken. He raised a force of 150 men and employed them as a patrol along the border, so that no hostile movement could be made without detection and the people would thus have time to rally to the necessary points for defense. The patrol was hired by the governor and paid out of his private means, he giving $1 a day for a man and horse, the United States Government furnishing the rations. He put the men in the field and kept them there, at a cost to h imself of more than $10,000. At the same time he was a captain in the hom guard and often on duty in that capacity. Through his patrol he preserved the border from invasion, but, at a later period, he was notified by the commander of the federal forces to abolish the patrol, as the regular troops would be able to care for the safety of the state. He carried out the order, and within three days Quantrill made his raid into Kansas. Lawrence was in ashes and 180 persons were fouly murdered."

I did not see these, Martha E and John A., in my visit in 8/1996, but there were a number of stones stacked up in a corner of the cemetery and they may have been among them.)

Will of John Barton found on microfilm at the Historical Society of York Co. Pa. Will was written on 3/2/1850 and recorded in York Co. Will Book T page 328. Will was probated 8/17/1850. There was a note added 8/26/1850 that since Joseph was not yet of age, Catherine, John's widow, was the executrix. All was left to widow and inventory was to be filed on Oct 9, 1850. This matches the known age of Joseph Barton who would have been 17 in August 1850.

Atticks and wife Elizabeth to Catharine Barton took place on April 7, 1855 for the sum of $25. [following received from Doug Church who corresponded with Kim Everingham] "Hi Doug, [Doug Church] Thank you very much for finding and contacting me. I gather you found my information on WorldConnect. I'm descended from John Stickel (1791-1870) and his first wife Mary (Bentzley) Stickel (1791-1862). They were settlers in Macon County, Illinois in the late 1830s. A couple of years after Mary's death, John married the widow Catherine (Umberger) Barton (1806-1895). I'm only beginning to learn about her family and look forward to finding out what you know. They were married a little over 5 years when he died. My sources for the Barton/Umberger family are: Macon County, Illinois Estate Papers, Macon County Clerk, Catherine Stickel, Box 151, Case 2112. _Decatur Daily Republican_, 30 Mar 1895, pg. 3, col. 5, Catharine Stickel obituary. Greenwood Cemetery Gravestone Inscriptions, Block 5, John Stickle and Catherine Barton Stickel.
I should also mention a letter written by Isaiah Stickel (John's son) to his nephew (John's grandson) 29 Jan 1865 in which he says: "Father stated that he thought of changing his mode of life and of setting up housekeeping on his own account. I think it a good plan providing he gets the right kind of a companion and if he gets one to suit himself nobody need complain. The lady is a Mrs Barton living in Penn. She is a dutch lady - has considerable property and Father says she is religious and a good House Keeper."
The obituary is as follows: GONE HOME Death of a Venerable Lady, Mrs. Stickel, at 150 North Street The death of Mrs. Catharine Stickel, occurred at 3 o'clock Friday afternoon at 150 West North street, the home of her daughter, Mrs. F. A. Leforgee. She had been ill a week, and was nearly 89 years of age. She leaves two daughters, Mrs. Caroline Floyd, of Mt. Zion, and Mrs. F. A. Leforgee, of Decatur, also three sisters in Pennsylvania and a brother, Captain Umberger, in Kansas. Catherine Umberger was born in York county, Pa., Sept. 4, 1806. Her father was a captain in the war of 1812. She was the fourth of twelve children, nine girls and three boys, all of whom lived to be honored and respected. Both of her parents lived to be over 80 years of age. At the age of 22 years she was married to John Barton, a pioneer school teacher. Eight children were born to them, six of whom grew to manhood and womanhood. Two died in infancy, and four died after having attained their majorities, Mrs. Floyd and Mrs. Leforgee being the only two children left. On March 7, 1865, she was married to John Stickel, who died five years later. She was a member of the Church of God for sixty-five years, and for thirty years she had lived in Decatur. For a number of years she has made her home with her daughter in Decatur. I can send you copies of her estate papers that detail her heirs. That's pretty much all I know. I'd very much like to know more. Best wishes, Kimball G. 'Kim' Everingham [email protected]"

Taylor of Cortez, Colo., and one daughter, Mrs. Dr. Huddleston of Mineola, Mo., survive him. In early life Brother Taylor professed faith in christ and united with the Baptist church, and ever lived a devoted Christian life. He loved the "Old Book" and made it the man of his counsel and guide. He was rooted and grouned in the Baptist faith, and demonstrated by his every day life that he was really and truly what he professed to be, and with firm and implicit faith in his Master he meekly and calmly met death and sweetly fell asleep in Jesus."

Bryant Cemetery, near Mineola Mo. Left on N from John & Martha Sue Lynch's home, cross bridge over Loutre R., turn left on #278, (at Loutre Creek sign), Cemetery is on left hand side of road. Visited by Martha Geraldine Wells Coraor and Margaret Wells Becker on 8/30/1991.

"Golden Wedding" "Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Taylor who live just outside the city limits on the Montgomery City-Belleflower road celebrated their fiftieth anniversary on Wednesday, April 9, 1902, entertaining about 30 friends, who were there to extend congratulations upon the rounding out of 50 years in which each partner has stood loyally by the other, each in turn assisting the other as they needed help and encouragement. "On April 9, 1852, Mr. G. W. Taylor and Miss Martha Skaggs were married in Fayette County, West Virginia, Rev. Allen Wood officiating. In February 1871 they came to Missouri and first settled in Morgan County, but came to Montgomery County the same year, where they have since resided. Mr. Taylor is 77 years of age, and Mrs. Taylor has just reached her three score years and ten, and both enjoy splendid health. Mr. and Mrs. Taylor were assisted in entertaining by their son, Dr. Joe J. Taylor and wife and their daughter Mrs. Dr. Huddleston. [this is Florence Taylor Huddleston] A most sumptuous dinner was served, to which all did ample justice. They were the recipients of quite a number of handsome and useful presents. Following were present; Dr. and Mrs. Hudson, Mr. and Mrs. Mahlon Bibb of Americus, Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Williams, Mr. and Mrs. Reynolds, Mr. and Mrs. J. Marlow, Mr. and Mrs. Woodson Walker, Mr. and Mrs. James Walker, Dr. and Mrs. Taylor. Mrs M. T. Bibb, Mrs H. M. Jamieson, Mrs. Jane Williams, Mrs Dr. Huddleston and daughter, Mrs. E. Sisk of Wellsville. "---- "I presume this was from a Montgomery County paper of LONG AGO. *** This above was sent to me (Martha Taylor Huddleston Dickinson) by my great-aunt Stell (wife of great uncle Joe Taylor-son of the 50th anniversary Taylors) in August 1963 when Aunt Stell was 92. In her letter she said she always told her husband (Joe Taylor) that she'd heard Grand Dad Taylor speak of Austed, West Virginia, and they'd been there together on their way to the Jamestown Exposition. She would joke and tell him she was born the year his parents came to Missouri (1871) and that he must have started looking for her then, but it took him 25 years to find her. Aunt Stell was clever and joked much...sounds just like a remark she'd make."

(Note from Contributor:
In the case of the will abstracts, the first date is when the
will was written, and the second date is generally when it
was proven. Before 1752, March 25th (Feast of the
Annunciation) was the first day of the new year by traditional
acceptance of the ecclesiastical calendar. When the Gregorian
calendar was adopted double dates were used from January
lst until March 25th. In some case, the dates are followed
by the Will Book letter and page number.
I know nothing further on any person mentioned in any of
the abstracts or administrations. -- Thera)

*******************************************************************
from THE HISTORY OF CHESTER COUNTY PENNSYLVANIA, by Futhey and Cope (1881);
Pikeland - literally Pike's Land - was granted by Wm Penn to Joseph Pike,
merchant, of Cork, Ireland, by patent dated Dec 3, 1705. It embraced the
territory now included in East and West Pikeland, and contained 10,116 acres and
allowances. Joseph Pike died in 172 7 seized of this tract, and also of a tract
of about 1400 acres in Caln twp, on the southern part of which is now Caln
Friends' meeting-house, and by his will, proved in the Prerogative Court of the
Archbishop of Armagh, Ireland, devised all his lands in Pennsylvania to his wife
Elizabeth in fee. Elizabeth Pike held the lands until her death in 1733, and
devised tem to her son, Richard Pike, in fee. Richard died in 1752, and by his
will devised all his estates in Pa to his kinsmen, Samuel Hoare and Nathaniel
Newberry, merchants, of London, England, subject to the payment of certain
legacies. In 1756, Samuel Hoare purchased the interest of Nathaniel Newberry
and became sole owner. On Dec3, 1773, Amuel Hoare, by his attorney, Amos
Strettle, sold and conveyed the lands '''known by the name of Pikeland'', to
Andrew Allen and took from him a mortgage thereon for 16000 , part of the
purchase money.
Andrew Allen sold and conveyed parcels of it to 115 persons, and received
from them the purchase moneys. The mortgage given by Allen to Hoare was not
being paid, it was sued out against Allen, and the 115 purchasers from him, as
terretenants, and the entire twp was sold as one tract by Ezekiel Leonard,
sheriff of Chester Co, and repurchased by Samuel Hoare, the holder of the
mortgage, and conveyed to him by deed, 1789. The persons to whom Allen had made
sales had failed or neglected to procure releases of the lands purchased by them
from him of the mortgage, and consequently the sheriff's sale to Hoare divested
their titles. They generally, however, compromised with Hoare, and by making
additions payments of purchase moneys received deeds of confirmation from him.
Some of them, however, were unable to effect any arrangement and lost their
lands and whatever improvements they had made.

18. David Umberger, son of Adam Umberger and Mary Gertraut Wernan, was born in 1775 in "Path Valley" Cumberland Co. now Franklin Co., Pennsylvania,65,134 died on 26 Aug 1854 near Lisburn, York Co., PA.17,65,135 at age 79, and was buried in Lisburn Cemetery, Lower Allen Twp., Cumerland Co., PA..17

General Notes: "John Umberger, farmer, P.O. Lisburn. As early as 1770 the name Umberger was known in this county, and, though the family is really of Scotch and Irish nativity, the name is unquestionably German. Leonard was the first one of the family to come to Lancaster County, Penn., which then included this territory. In Rupp's History mention is made of Leonard Umberger purchasing Rupp's great-grandfather at public sale, the custom in those days, the vessel owners having the right to dispose of their passengers, in this way to obtain their passage money. Leonard Umberger was the great-grandfather of our subject, as he begat Adam who begat David, the father of John. Adam Umberger settled in "Path Valley, " now in Franklin County, in 1770, and by his wife, Catharine, had three children: David; Elizabeth, married to Mr. Heckart of Dauphin County; John who engaged in mercantile business in Harrisburg, but died while a young man. Adam Umberger, who was a millwright, was preparing to build a mill near his home when he died; his family then returned to Dauphin County and settled near Linglestown. David, the eldest son, was born in 1775, and was indentured to Mr. Berry, in 1791, to learn the blacksmith's trade (his mother about that time married Michael Umberger, a brother of her first husband, and moved to York County, near Lisburn). About 1796, David Umberger came to Lisburn, purchased property and established himself in the blacksmith's trade. In 1798 he married Dorothy Maish, of York County, Penn., by whom he had a large family; the oldest child, Mary, was born in Lisburn in 1799, and a few years later David Umberger (in 1809) sold his Lisburn property, moved to Warrington Township, York County, and there purchased a farm and carried on an extensive smithy. On this farm were born Ann, Elizabeth, Catharine, David and Rebecca (twins) and Sarah. About 1812 he purchased the Daniel Kahm farm, near Lisburn (where he resided until his death), and here were born Ellen, John, Jane, George and Esther. John Umberger, our subject, was born in 1816; in 1841, he married Susan Miller, of York County, Penn., daughter of Jacob and Susan Miller, and they commenced married life on the paternal homestead, and their two children were born: David M., in 1843, and Eliza J., in 1845. In the spring of 1846, our subject, with his family, came to this county, purchasing the farm, now his homestead, and which has been made beautiful by his own industry; every fence, the handsome stone house, commodious outbuildings, etc., were erected since the purchase, and the nice orchard was planted by the hands of himself and wife, and they have lived to see their labors crowned by beautiful harvests, which have filled their purse. Rachael E., John, Jr., Agnes J., George F., Lewis C., William M., Franklin P., Lilly E., Charles E. and Clarence S. were born on this farm. Always popular among the people, Mr. Umberger has been foremost in promoting every important feature of educational and social life. A lifelong Democrat, he has lived to see the rise and decline of numerous political parties, and to-day hails with delight the supremacy his chosen party occupies. For nearly half a century he and his wife have belonged to the Church of God, and have reared their family in that faith. Rich in experience, ripe in years, they remain as they have lived, beloved by all who know them."

David Maish sold land to David Umberger recorded Dec. 31, 1821 York County, Pa. (York County Courthouse, Recorder of Deeds, 3F 328).

He was married to Polly Umberger, a daughter of David and Dorothy (Maish) Umberger, who lived in York county, a short distance east of Lisburn. through living in the family of his cousin Edward, Andrew G. Miller became acquainted with Eleanor Umberger, a sister of his cousin's wife, which acquaintance ripened into love, and they became man and wife.

An early Lancaster county church record contains the information that Michael Umberger was married to Anna Maria Rambler, of Tulpehocken, on Oct 18, 1784, at the hands of Rev. John Casper Stoever." [Jeremiah Zeamer, Biographical annals of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania : containing biographical sketches of prominent and representative citizens and of many of the early settled families, 1907, p. 83-86]

Aurthur Umberger writes: "DAVID UMBERGER, the second son of Adam and Mary Gertraudt (Werner) Umberger, was born 1775 at Path Valley, Cumberland Co., (now Franklin Co.), Pa. He died 26 Aug. 1854 at Lisburn, York Co., Pa. He married 5 July 1793 [sic] Dorothy Maisch. She was born 29 Jan. 1782 in York Co., Pa., the daughter of George Maisch. She died 27 June 1863 at Lisburn, York Co., Pa. "David and Dorothy (Maisch) Umberger were the parents of three sons and nine daughters. David's father, Adam, settled in Path Valley, (now in Franklin Co.) in 1770. Adam was a millwright, and was preparing to build a mill near his home when he died (about 1779). His family then returned to Dauphin Co., and settled near Linglestown. DAVID born in 1775 was indentured to Mr. Barry in 1791 to learn the blacksmith trade. His mother, about that time married Michael Umberger (a bro. of Adam, her 1st husband) and moved to York County near Lisburn. About 1796 David came to Lisburn, purchased property and established himself in the blacksmith trade. In 1798 he married Dorothy Maisch. In 1801 David sold his Lisburn property and moved to Warrington Twp., York Co., and there purchased a farm and carried on an extensive smithy. About 1812 he purchased the Dan Kahm farm near Lisburn where he resided until his death." [Umberger Family Chart]

Several LDS IGI references to a David Umberger though not sure that these are the correct person: Film Number: 1239560, Page 1100, Ref # 23087 notes birth as 1772 in Chester Co., Pennsylvania and father as Adam Umberger.

His daughter's (Catherine) obituary said he was a Captain in the War of 1812.

It is clear that David Umberger who married Dorothy Maisch is a part of our family but the clarity and certainty of documentation for his father and earlier ancestors is doubtful. More work needs to be done to clarify this lineage. There seem to be several Umberger families that have probably been mixed together. RJC-Jan 2004.

26. Martin Felkins,112,181 son of John Felkins and Anna, was born in 1784 in Faquier Co., Virginia112,182 and died in Danville, Montgomery Co., Missouri.181

General Notes: "Notes for MARTIN FELKINS: MARTIN FELKINS came to Pulaski, Co. Ky. from Va. with his family sometime between 1789 and 1808 (sorry I can't be more specific at this time), when he first shows up in the Pulaski, Co. Ky. Census. This may have been the result of an early wagon train type exodus, since his wife and the wife of his brother JOHN were also from east Va. MARTIN and his brother JOHN were also married the same year (1808) in Pulaski, Co. Ky.(the other side of the mountains from Va.). The younger brother WILLIAM was married later (1813). MARTIN disappears from the tax records in 1814 but reappears in the 1820 Cumberland Co. Ky. Census. with a JOHN FELKINS. Whether this was JOHN Jr. or Sr. has not yet been determined. However an apparent daughter of JOHN Sr.(LUCINDA FELKINS) married ISAAC WELLS on July 15,1819. Neither JOHN Jr. or MARTIN had a daughter in this age range at this time (Per 1810 Census data). MARTIN at this time had 2 sons between the ages of 10 and 16, and 3 daughters less than 10 years old. MARTIN FELKINS is next mentioned in the letter from the Veteran's Administration concerning JOHN Sr.(which they had very little info about) as living in Overton Co. Tn. in 1830. But by 1840 he is listed in the Fentress Co. Tn. Census which is in the same geographic area. JOEL, his now married son is living in a separate household."

General Notes: Landed in America on October 16, 1751 in Philadelphia . First settled in Chester Co., but soon moved to the Quaker settlement in northern York Co.

Historical Report of Maish Family by Hon. D. F. Maish "Johann Georg Maisch arrived in this country at Philadelphia, Penn., on the ship the Duke of Wirtemberg, Captain Montpelier from Rotterdam and last from Cowes and qualified Oct. 16 1751. Number of passengers on board 406. (Pennsylvania Archives second series, Vol. 17; page 349, also found in I. D. Rupps., collection of thirty-thousand names, formerly in possession of Hon. Levi Maish). He settled at Chestnut Hill, above Germantown, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, prior to August 19, 1766 on which date he and John Jarrett gave a mortgage to Frederick Schenkel for a horse and plantation in the upper part of German township formerly called "Sommerhousen Chestnut Hill". In this record he is described as a turner. As evidence of this record there isnow in possession of Lieut. Aleander Maish, of Rock Island, Arsenal, Ill. a seal ring bearing the sign and implements of turner, and the initials "J. G. M." handed down through his family as the property of John George Maisch, the same being loaned to our organization to exhibit at this reunion, and a photograph of which appears upon your badge, and program at this meeting. On April 19, 1773, John George Maisch of German Township, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania bought of Joseph Whiteside, for 405 pounds, 200 acres of land in Newberry Township, York County, and was residing there March 27, 1776, when he mortgaged the said 200 acres to John Jarrett of White Marsh, Philadelphia County. In these two instruments he is described as a turner. John George Maisch was married to Catharine Ulp. (Date unknown). A man named Bigler, also married an Ulp, sister of Catharine; another sister was married to a man named Grissinger, all in the vicinity of Harrisburg, and New Cumberland Pa. This information given by John Umberger, Grandson of John George Maisch, in winter of 1881-2. The will of John George Maisch, written in German, dated Nov. 4th, 1802, and witnessed by Daniel Herr and Thomas Metzler, was proved March 6, 1805, the same being recorded in Will Book "L" Page 224, York, Pa."

Research Notes: Will is found in York County, Pennsylvania Will Book L page 224. Was dated November 4, 1802 and probated March 6, 1805. Looking at the microfilm of the will the names for the husbands of the daughters read differently in the abstracted cards than in the actual will. Actual will seems to have Henrich Kramer as married to Maria rather than Henry Reinard. Handwriting is difficult to read however. NOTE: Maria, Christina, Dorthea, Catherine, Joseph and David are mentioned. Frederick is not mentioned in the will. (Possible confirmation he is dead by 1802).

English Translation of the Will of John George Maisch "In the name of God the Father the Son and Holy Ghost Amen this is to be my earnest will, since I am alive and of good understanding. I direct and it is my will that my body shall be buried in the usual Christian manner and tehefuneral expenses and all other debts outstanding shall be paid by my estate. My 4 daughters, Maria wife of Henrich Kramer, Christina wife of Henrich Weitzel, Dorothea wife of David Umberger and Catharina (still single) shall equally be my heirs, excepting that Dorothea shall have L9 extra and Catharina shall have a good bed with bed clothing, a chest, a cow and a spinning wheel extra. It is my further will that my 2 sons Joseph and David shall posses and hold forever all that they have received from me in money land and cattle or whatever form, but shall inherit nothing more. It is my further will that my son Joseph shall be executor and I give him full power to do what I am indicating in this my last will, with my own hand and signature, November 4th A.D. 1802. N.B. Joseph shall have my bible and David shall have the Wahrenhrorlun (?). Johan Georg Maisch (seal) Witnesses: Daniel Herr Thomas Metzler

Johnn Georg Maisch" [listed as a passenger] p. 475, "Wednesday 16th October 1751 Present: The Worshipful Robert Strettell, Esquire, Mayor of Philadelphia. The foreigners whose names are underwritten imported in the Ship Duke of Wirtenberg, Capt. Montpelier, Commander from Rotterdam & Cowes England did this day take and subscribe the usual Qualifications. Johann Georg Maisch" [listed as passenger] p. 98, incorrectly states that John George Maisch was on "Duke of Wellington" and that it left Rotterdam on Oct 16, 1751. Copy of letter to Everett Barton inviting him to the First Annual Reunion of the John George Maisch Family. Lists the children of John George Maisch and the married name of the daughters. Note on Everett's copy "Dorothea Umberger is your great grandmother on your father's side." This reunion was reported in the Frankfort, Indiana papers at the time (Oct. 16, 1909) see ref. 107.

         vi.  Christiana Maisch

        vii.  Catherine Maisch


39. Catharine Ulp,205 daughter of Unknown and Unknown, was born in Switzerland.206

Research Notes: Ulp may actually be App or Upp which were names in the York area , or possibly Ulph which is English (from Annie K. Mikesell [[email protected]] Charles Ulph came to US in 1752 per "Passenger & Immigration Lists Index" by Filby & Meyer, reference: "Bonded Passengers to America" by Peter Wilson Coldham, Home Counties of Surrey, Hertfordshire, Kent, Essex, Sussex and John Ulph arrived 1749, reference: same, Norfolk Circuit for Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Huntingdonshire, Norfolk, Suffolk Counties.

Other possibilities are that the name could be Olp or Olb (or Ull or Ulb, or Oll). Mr. James Knipe ()researched the Olp family in Shrewsbury Township, York county, Pa. His research did not identify Catherine Ulp who married John George Maisch (per letters to Mrs. Witt 96-0006 and 96-0007).

Catharine married John George Maisch. John died in 1802 in Fairview Twp., York Co., Pennsylvania198 and was buried in Fairview Twp., York Co., Pennsylvania.199

General Notes: "Personal Glimpse of JOHN FELKINS: John Felkins was born in 1759 to William Felkins and his wife Sarah, in Fauquier County, Virginia. (See Deed Book 3, Paces 238-242 and page 503). After John married, he named his son William in honor of his father. John was in his teenage years during the American Revolutionary War. He served for three years as a private in the company commanded by Captain Payton, Heaths Virginia Regiment, under Colonel Marshal in the Virginia line. John Felkins' file number for his pension is S-39517 Rev. (Please note it is through this file number that his descendents may join the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution). At the Battle of the Blueford [sic - likely Buford's Defeat, RJC], John was severely injured in nine different places on his body. He was unable to travel, and thinking he was near death, his company had to leave him on the battlefield. He managed to get to safety, and after recovering sufficient strength, John made his way home. He could find no officer to report to for return duty, but wrote some letters indicating where he was and asking for information. The years passed and his children grew up and left home. By the time he was 71 years old, he was impoverished and his health was gone. He was afflicted with a chest complaint and so crippled in one leg that he was unable to work for a salary. His wife was 68 years old and infirm. They owned no real estate. In desperate need, John went to the Overton County Court, State of Tennessee on October 25, 1830 to declare his poverty and to ask for a pension on his service record. He presented an inventory of his worth to the court: (Clothes and bedding exempt)
One small mare about 15 years of age $30.00
One cow and two small heifers 15.00
One hog and six pigs 5.00
Tools and kettles 11.25
His total worth was $61.25

It was determined that John was entitled to full credit,on his oath, and was granted the pension. It was allotted at the rate of $8.00 a month, commencing June 7, 1831, with a retroactive payment in September, 1831 of $23.46. However, he could not seem to collect it. The old veteran was destitute. The cow and one calf died. John and his wife had to eat the pigs. Things went wrong financially in every way possible. On April 4, 1837, a friend, Willis Hiedleston, made a sincere effort to help John Felkins and other elderly men to receive their pensions. He wrote in part: 'It does seem to me a hard case that these old men should be put to so much trouble to get these little pensions. The government attempted to do something for them, but in the way it is managed, it is of little profit to them where they are not able to go in person, and most of them are not ... and the fact is lawyers and attorneys, for fees and expense, have got most of the money and the old men have went without ... I have been twice to Nashville to get this man's (Felkins) money. I could not get a dollar. I paid my own expense which was about $20, and twenty-days time lost.' When this was written, John was 78 years old. It is not known if he ever received any compensation for his war service and nine bodily injuries. Two years later, he died on January 21, 1839, at the age of 80 years. Blessed are the poor! Note: John's son was William Felkins who was born in 1788 in Virginia and died 1869 in Arkansas. He married Jane Williams on May 1, 1813, Pulaski Co., Kentucky. Siblings were John Felkins, Jr, born about 1780, Martin about 1784, (William 1788),Elizabeth about 1790, and Wilson about 1805. Three girls were born, names unknown. The brothers, William and Wilson, kept close track of each others families throughout the years - even yet today. (This brief story on John Felkins, Sr., was originally written by Mary Blanche Woods, born 1920, of Denver, Colorado.)"[James and Leon Felkins, [email protected], "The Descendents, Ancestors and Allied Families of John Felkins, Pvt."

Buford's Defeat
[Lancaster County Library, Local History & Genealogy: http://history.lanclib.org/resources/exhibits/buford/buford.htm , July 2007]

"With the fall of Charles Town May 12, 1780, there was only one organized military force left in South Carolina. A detachment of Virginia Continentals under the command of Colonel Abram Buford had been on their way south to assist in the relief of Charles Town. Learning of the surrender, Buford was retreating to American headquarters in Salisbury, North Carolina. Lt. Col. Banastre Tarleton, commanding the British Legion, was dispatched to destroy them.

At 3 o'clock on a Monday afternoon, the Americans were overtaken. The most notorious battle of the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution was about to begin. In minutes, the majority of Buford's men would be either dead or so badly wounded that they would not survive.

With the destruction of Buford's regiment, the British believed that South Carolina was theirs. However, the story of the slaughter of Buford's men galvanized American resistance in the Carolinas. "Tarleton's Quarter" became a proverb for wholesale cruelty -- and a rallying cry for the patriots.

In 1860, the citizens of Lancaster District erected a monument to the gallant Virginians. The final lines of the inscription on the monument quote Charles Stedman, Commissary General under Cornwallis. He remarked that, on this occasion,
'The virtue of humanity was totally forgot.' "

The Buford Massacre
May 29, 1780
by Louise Pettus

[https://sites.rootsweb.com/~scyork/RevWar/BufordsMassacre.html , York Co., S. Carolina GenWeb site, July 2007]
"About 9 miles east of Lancaster on SC Highway 522, a quarter of a mile south of Highway 9, there is a two-acre plot of land with two historical markers, a stone wall, and two mass graves. What happened there on May 29, 1780 is know variously as the Buford Massacre, Buford's Defeat, or the Battle of the Waxhaws.

Following a naval siege, Charleston had surrendered on May 12th. Col. Abraham Buford and his Virginia soldiers were the only organized troop left in South Carolina. Buford and his men retreated at a slow pace, partly because they waited on remnants of several South Carolina cavalry troops to join them, and partly because the Virginians were escorting SC Gov. John Rutledge and his party to Hillsborough, NC for safety.

Afraid that Governor Rutledge would escape, the British general, Lord Cornwallis, assigned his best commander of mobile forces, Col. Banastre Tarleton, to pursue. By the time Tartleton had caught up (at one point covering 105 miles in 54 hours), Rutledge had separated from Buford's 350 Virginia Continentals. Tarleton, who had 130 cavalry, 100 infantry, and 40 British Dragoons, found Buford's forces resting after a long march.

Accounts of what happened next vary considerably. One view states that Buford, realizing that it was futile to resist, ordered his men to raise the flag of truce. Tarleton came forward on horseback to accept the flag. Just as he did so, his horse was shot from under him. Tarleton fell, and the horse fell on him. Tarleton's men, mistakenly believing their leader was killed, attacked furiously.

Another version, and the one most popular with Patriot writers, is that Tarleton tricked Buford by offering the Colonials quarter, and when they laid down their arms, Tarleton ordered the British troops to attack without mercy. Alexander Garden of Charleston wrote that it was "one of Tarleton's most atrocious acts of barbarity, yet it exalted him in the favour of Lord Cornwallis, and raised his military reputation, in the opinions of the British nation, to the most exalted degree of perfection."

American casualties were 113 killed, 150 wounded, and 53 prisoners. Many of the wounded died within a day. An American officer who was there said that the average number of saber and bayonet wounds per soldier was 16. After this the Americans spoke of "Bloody Tarleton." Buford escaped, and most of those who did were mounted. The British lost only 5 killed and 14 wounded.

People in the neighborhood came to care for the wounded, and that afternoon buried 84 of the dead in a mass grave. The next day they buried 25 others in a second mass grave about 300 yards from the first.

The remaining wounded patriots were taken by wagon to Waxhaw Presbyterian Church to be tended. Among the nurses were Elizabeth Jackson and her son, 13-year-old Andrew Jackson.

A major result of Buford's Massacre was to stimulate a vast amount of hatred toward the British in the Scotch-Irish communities of Lancaster, Chester, and York. It was easy for Thomas Sumter to recruit soldiers in the area. Recruiters only had to shout "Tarleton's Quarter."

The oldest memorial on the site is a marble obelisk, 15' tall from base to top, which was erected in 1860. It was designed and cut by William T. White, a prominent Charleston stone-cutter. The monument is inside a two-foot wall of white rocks that outlines the larger of the two mass graves. The second mass grave is unmarked. There is also a single grave, dated 1894, near the rock enclosure. It is the only thing left of a church called Buford Monument Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, which adjoined the site from 1893 until 1902.

Because the writing on the 1860 could not be read and the stone was badly chipped by souvenir hunters, in 1955 the Lancaster County Historical Commission and the Daughters of the American Revolution, Waxhaws Chapter, erected a second monument repeating the wording of the first."

John Skaggs married to Katherine Hicks in LDS Ancestral File AFN:19XT-69V

John Skaggs was a Long Hunter and his brothers.

Marriage License, Kentucky.

John Skaggs was married twice, the name of his first wife is still not known today. There has been several folks that has conjecture as to who his first wife was but I have not seen any evidence of facts to would substantuate any close "proof" of such. One person thought his first wife was an Edna Enis who was married to a John Skaggs but this was not John Henry Skaggs, Sr. of Monroe County, Va.. That John Skaggs, born 1800 was the son of Richard Skaggs of Barren County, Kentucky.

He married Feb. 14, 1786, Katherine Hicks by Rev. Alderson at the Old Greenbrier Church which was the first church established in the Alleghanies and is still in existenance today where many of his descendants of Thomas Skaggs and Ann Wollard as well as Rev. John Alderson.

According to a Miss Eunice Skaggs of Sinks Grove, West Virginia, he was married before this date and had 16 children. The name of his first wife is unknown. There could be more I have 18 children listed for him.

>From the "Magazine of Virginia Genealogy, page 289: "Surv'd for John Scaggs, 270 acres, Greenbrier County, on Wolf Creek a branch of Greebrier River, including the place Thomas Scaggs formerly lived on near the land of Moses Hall and Jacob Doren, on part of Fr.

John Skaggs and Nancy Hicks, February 14, 1786, Philson Club, Louisville, Ky. (8 w (2), 199)

COPY OF A MANUSCRIPT: (Only part is quoted here)

"There were two later surveys made for John Scaggs. Enlargements brought the total acreage in time to 1088 acres. A good portion of land is still in the Scaggs family. An old sheepskin land grant given to John Scaggs in 1795 by the Governor Robert Brooks of Virginia, is in possession of Eunice Skaggs, Route 1, Sinks Grove, West Virginia. It has had mishaps from fire and water but is still legible.

On the survey books at Union, Monroe Counties, West Virginia, are the following entries (variation in spelling of the name, even in a single document, should be noted). John Scaggs, 270 Ares, in Green Brier County, April 25, 1787, Page 16 of Surveyors Book.

Surveyor for John Scaggs, 270 Acres, in Greenbrier County, lying and being on the waters of Wolf Creek, a branch of the Greenbrier River, including the place Thomas Scaggs formerly lived on and near the land of Moses Hall and Jacob Davis, beginning with and following the surveyors directions. This first survey for John Scags was made July 12, 1785. This date may have been the time of the recording in Surveyors Book, Page 423. Surveyed for John Scaggs, 668 Acres of land in Greenbrier County on the waters of Wolf Creek, a Branch of the Greenbrier River. Joining the land of John Hall, Jacob Doran and James Euing, of Augusta and 400 Acres, by virtue of a certificate granted by the Commissioner of Augusta and 268 Acres, by part of State Warrant for 1928 Acres No. 15150 as all of William Morris, and 20 Acres by Warrant No. 11257, including a survey of 270 Acres, made for and to wit. Beginning at a white oak tree by a branch N45 degrees, W 370 degrees, returning to the beginning. Dated October 7th, 1787, Alex Welsh, Surveyor of Greenbrier County, Virginia.

John Scaggs was married twice. (The name of his first wife is not known at present time.) His second wife was Catherine Hicks, whom he married February 14th, 1786. The officiating minister was the Rev. John Alderson, first pastor of the Old Greenbrier Baptist Church, the oldest Baptist Church west of the Allegheny Mountains. A few years ago, the register of his marriage was printed in the Monroe Watchman as an antiquity of great interest. "February 14th, 1786, John Scaggs united with Kitty Hicks", John, Katherine, Joseph, and Lucy Scaggs were charter members of the Old Greenbrier Baptist Church. Among their names with eight others, who are esteemed charter members, are being placed on a bronze plaque in the massive stone church over the site of the original structure. The Church is about ten miles distant from the Scaggs land."

(in part of the original Manuscript continued)

"Since the organization of the church is given as 1781, it is not certain that Katherine Scaggs listed with the charter members, was Catherine Hicks. This Katherine may have been the first wife of John Scaggs or his sister. Reference to the foregoing is the souvenir booklet of the 125 Anniversary of Greenbrier Baptist Church, 1906." (I personally believed that this "Kitty" is definitely Catherine Hicks, John's second wife, based upon thousands of hours of research and have not found a "Kitty" or any other females of John having any sisters. Also, I have not been able to find any documentation for John's first wife.)

"John Scaggs name disappeared from the personal tax list in 1829. The exact date of his death is not known. However, he met his death from a bull, he was riding to his mill on Hard Run, on his farm. An old Burrstone lies there today, marking the site of his mill and the disaster, which ended his life. A photograph of the spot is in existence, showing a beautiful secluded woody scene.

John Scaggs, the Revolutionary Soldier, Charter Member of the Old Greenbrier Baptist Church, Grantee of Land Tract, containing 668 Acres, from the Commonwealth of Virginia rest in the cemetery back of the Greenbrier Baptist Church at Alderson, West Virginia. His grave is marked by an old soapstone cut on the Scaggs land, very crudely done. The inscription on the head stone has entirely weathered away. But. J. S. is plainly in view on the foot stone. These old stones are surrounded by commercial stones to the more recent Skaggses.

There is misinformation on this forum regarding John Skaggs and Catherine Hicks. It seems to have been repeated and accepted by many people. The father of John Skaggs was Thomas Skaggs. This information can be found in Hardesty's History of West Virginia by Jim Comstock. The original book was written while John and Catherine's son John was still living. I quote, "John Skaggs - is one of the oldest native residents of Monroe County, having been born in Wolf Creek district, in 1795. His father, also named John Skaggs, and his grandfather Thomas Skaggs, were the first settlers in this district. The mother of the subject of this sketch was named Catharine Hicks." (Book located at Clayton Library in Houston.) The children of John Skaggs and Catherine are listed in A History of Monroe County, West Virginia. The book also names the children of their son John. The list is fairly correct. However, the listing of John and Catherine's daughter Sarah, should be Susan. Other children may have been omitted from the list. John and Catherine were married in Greenbrier County, Virginia, by Rev. John Alderson and were charter members of Greenbrier Baptist Church. My information does not agree with other folks' info that they were married in Frederick County, VA. I have not seen a source for the Frederick County data. John and Catherine did not ever live in Kentucky, contrary to other information on this forum. They raised their family in Monroe County, and their children and grandchildren can be found in Monroe County census records for 1850 and after. Catherine was still living in 1850, as she was listed in the home of her son John. (John Scaggs, 53; Sally, 53; John, 24; Mary, 20; Louisa, 17; Catherine Skaggs, 85)."

I think I lost a post. Anyway, regarding John Skaggs who married Catherine Hicks, his father was Thomas Skaggs of Wolf Creek, not John Skaggs. This can be proven from church records of Greenbrier Baptist Church.

The list of children of John and Catherine is quite different from mine. I have researched this quite thoroughly, and though I'm sure my record is not perfect, I do think it is fairly accurate.

I have sources and will send them to anyone who needs them.

There are an unusual number of problems in general with Skaggs genealogy. A lot of information has been handed down and believed and repeated without the citation of any proof. In my opinion the Skaggs researchers do this more than any line I have ever researched. I have heard the Thomas Skaggs and Ann Wollard thing repeated and repeated, but the Skaggs researchers I know who have spent much time living in that area (Shirley Ulaki and James E. Skaggs)say there is no proof that Ann Wollard was the wife of Thomas Skaggs of Wolf Creek. The Thomas Skaggs and Ann Wollard who married in England are not the same couple. Thomas Skaggs of Wolf Creek was born in Maryland around 1728. Mrs. Ulaki cites documents in her book that establish this. It is more likely that Thomas's wife was named Lucy, according to Mrs. Ulaki. My belief, not proof, is that her name was Lucretia, based on the numerous granddaughters and later generations who had the name Lucretia.

Even the most meticulous researchers (whether Mrs. Ulaki, me, James E. Skaggs, or anyone else) will make mistakes and draw incorrect conclusions, but we are wasting our time if we repeat things over and over without stating the evidence.

Another thing that gets repeated is the Henry part of John Skaggs's name. I have no idea what the proof is of that name and I never include it.

It is just so hard to shed the myths and dig out the facts.

Research Notes: Date: Mon, 23 Mar 1998 22:19:27 -0600 From: Ray Heller <[email protected]> To: [email protected] CC: sally heller <[email protected]> Message-ID: <[email protected]> Subject: John Skaggs - Barren Co., KY Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

John Skaggs md. Kitty Hicks 14 Feb 1786, by Rev. John Alderson, Jr. at Linville Creek, now Rockingham Co, and in Greenbriar Co., VA the latter now in WV.

John Skaggs came to Barren Co., Ky at an early date but returned to Virginia and died there about 1829. If this is true then he left his children in Barren Co. several years prior to his death. He probably was married twice by looking at the ages of some of the children.

At any rate, John's children must have been close to Richard their uncle. Richard signed his name along with Charles when Rebecca married William Warnell in 1817 in Barren Co. Again when John married Edna Ennis in Barren Co., one "Betsy" Skaggs signs for John to marry. I assume this Betsy is Elizabeth, the wife of Richard.

This information was given to me by Ann Nielson and was written by Norman Warnell.

The one John Skaggs is mine. He's the one that was in Greengrier Co. Va. and was a son of Thomas. As of yet there is nothing to attach him to the one in Ky. John Skaggs died Dec.9,1839 in Wolf Creek, Monroe Co. is said to be a Rwv war spy in 1780, married a cathline Hicks about 1773 had 16 kids from 2 wives. First wife also a Kathline I think.

John married Catherine Nancy Hicks 225 on 14 Feb 1786 in Old Greenbrier Church, Virginia 187.,226 Catherine was born about 1756187 and died after 1850 in Monroe Co., Virginia.227

Marriage Notes: IGI ref notes marriage in Greenbriar Virginia and a second one
indicates Greenbrier West Virginia
"John and Catherine were married by Rev. Alderson at the Old Greenbrier Church which was the first church established in the Alleghanies and is still in existance today where many of the descendants of Thomas Skaggs and Ann Wollard worshipped."

I've never heard of Ann Woodland.

Also, I don't think it is correct that Thomas Skaggs' descendants were the "Long Hunters" of Kentucky. The famous Long Hunters may have been his brothers, nephews, and cousins, but his children were probably not among them.

And I'm wondering how this author stood by Thomas Skaggs' grave. I've been to Greenbrier Baptist Church Cemetery where Thomas Skaggs is buried and there is no marker. I was told no one knows exactly where in the cemetery he is buried. Byt the way, the information on the tombstones of John and Catherine Skaggs is not entirely correct. In particular, the death date of Catherine is wrong, as she has been found in the census after that supposed death date. Someone put up that modern day marker without having all the facts.

Sorry to sound so negative. I just don't know how to stop the flood of misinformation.

General Notes: "Manheim Sentinel & Lancaster County Advertiser" established Jan 1846, Seventy-eighth Volume - No. 28, Manheim, Pa., Fri. A.M. July 13, 1923. Historical Sketch of HANS REIFF as compiled by Mr. J. C. Burkholder 722 North 16th St., Harrisburg, Penna. Source: Ref. 102 p. 3-7. "The history of the Reiff Family is submitted to the Sentinel by Mr. W. H. Reiff of Harrisburg. The article will be of interest to many of the patrons of this office on account of the Local connections. This family had connections with the development of Rapho Twp. "The date of the migration of Hans Reiff, to America has not been definitely determined, but he was located by Francis Daniel Pastorius in the Perkiomen Valley, Montgomery County, Penna., in 1718. There is no doubt whatever that his is the ancestor of the Reiff Family that lived in Rapho Twp., Lancaster Co., Penna., as the following data will show. "There were other families named Reiff, decendants of HANS GEORGE REIFF who lived in the same valley as early or possibly earlier than 1718. They belonged to the Reformed Church, while HANS REIFF WAS A MENNONITE. The Hans George Reiff family contributed the ground on which the first Reformed Church in America was built. Governor Pennypacker records the petitions of a settler in the Perkiomen Valley to the Colonial Council in Philadelphia dated 1723, praying for protection from Indians, to which were signed the names of the settlers, all in one hand. The name of Hans Reiff is among them. The Pennsylvania archives also record that Hans Reiff took the oath of allegiance, April 12, 1743 and Abraham, April, 1746. "Mr. Jacob Y. Heckler, in his history of Lower Salford Twp., Montgomery Co., Penna., records the fact that HANS REIFF was a Mennonite. That he lived there until 1745 and then went "West". Also that his wife died in 1741 and that her tombstone is the oldest dated stone in the Mennonite Church yard at Salford. "Mr. ABRAHAM REIFF, his brother, was one of the deacons when the Mennonite Congregation at Salford was organized about 1735. This is one of the oldest Mennonite Congregations next to the one at Germantown. "The next items of interest pertaining to HANS REIFF are found in the records of the Court House at Lancaster, Penna. "HANS REIFF bought 300 acres of land from his brother Abraham. This indicates that Abraham preceeded Hans to the Conestoga Valley. HANS REIFF died March 16, 1750. His will provides for his five children but does not mention his wife or widow. This agrees with the statement of Heckler. Heckler also states that Barbara Reiff, a daughter of HANS, is buried beside her mother at Salford. This is the only mention of this Barbara, except in the will of HANS REIFF."

Will of Hans Reiff included in : "In the name of God amen. The 16th day of March 1750 I, Hans Reiff of the Twp. of Rapho, in the county of Lancaster and the provice of Penn., Yeoman, being very sick and weak in body but perfect in mind and memory, thanks be given to GOD, therefore, calling unto mind the mortality of the body and knowing that it is appointed to all men once to die, do make and ordain this my last will and testament. That is to say princiapally and first of all I give and return my soul unto the hands of GOD that gave and for my body I recommend it to the earth to be buried in a Christian manner at the direction of my executors nothing doubting but at the general resurrection I shall receive it again by the mighty power of GOD and as touching such worldly estate wherewith it has pleased GOD to bless me in this life, I give, devise and dispose of the same in the following manner and form: ITEM: It is my will and I do hereby order that in the first place all my debts and funeral expenses be paid and satisfied. ITEM: I give and bequeath to my daughter, Barbara, the sum of twelve pounds and ten shillings lawful money of Penn. ITEM: I give and bequeath to my daughter, Ann, the sum of twelve pounds and ten shillings lawful money of Penn. ITEM: It is my will and I do hereby order that the remaining residue of my estate, real and personal, be equally divided among all of my children.

ITEM: I give and bequath unto my son John, the plantation whereon I dwell with one hundred acres of land with the improvements thereon made. ITEM: The remaining one hundred acres I give and bequeath to my son Abraham. ITEM: It is my will and I do order that the three hundred acres of land aforesaid be valued and appraised by four honest and indifferent men to be chosen by my executors hereafter named. ITEM: I order that all my personal estate after debts are paid shall be kept together for two years after my death and that none of my said sons who have the land shall pay any legacy to my children unto two years have expired after my death. ITEM: I do likewise make and ordain my well beloved brothers Abraham Reiff, and Jacob Reiff, and my trusty friend, Christian Hernley my only and sole executors of this my last will and testament with sole power to sell and convey the land or any part thereof to pay debts or otherwise as fully as I myself might have done and I do hereby disallow, revoke and annul any and every former testaments, wills, legacies and guaranty by me made in any way before this time named, filied and bequeather satisfying and confirming this and no other to be my last will and testament. IN WITNESS WHEREOF I shall hereunto set my hand and seal the day and year above written. Signed Hans Reiff Signed and sealed and enclosed by the said Hans Reiff as his last will and testament in the presence of Jacob Reiff, Emanuel Carpenter."

"The above was written in high German and this is the translation on record in the court house in Lancaster, Penna. "The records also show that the son HENRY REIFF died before the two years expired. His will on record gives his share of his father's legacy to his two daughters. "The readers attention is invited to the fact that Hans Reiff left two brothers, Abraham and Jacob, and three sons, John, Henry, and Abraham. There does not appear any record of the brother, Jacob. Abraham lived in Leacock Twp. His son, Abraham married Barbara Groff, the grand-daughter of Hans Groff the orginal settler in Graeffen Dahl (Groff Dale), the progenitor of the Groff family. This branch of the Reiff family is not numerous. "Henry Groff died within two years of his father's death. The descendents of John Reiff are not traced. Note that Abraham, son of Hans, names this brother Jacob in his will that follows: "I ABRAHAM REIFF, of Rapho Twp., in the county of Lancaster, Province of Penn., Farmer, being sick and weak in body, but of good understanding and faith (God be thanked) on the eleventh day of May, in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and seventy-four (1774), make and declare this my last will and testament in the manner following ('That is to say): FIRST It is my will and I do hereby order that all my just debts and funeral expenses shall be paid by my hereinafter named executors out of my estate.

ITEM It is my will and I order that if any of my executors should not sell my plantation then my son ABRAHAM shall have it to him, his heirs and assigns forever for an equitable price and it shall be appraised to him by four trusty men chosen by my executors and also how much he is yearly to pay to his brothers and sisters. But if the child with whom my said wife is pregnant should be a (boy) when born and carried, or shall have attained the full age of twenty-one years shall have the other half of the plantation to him and his assigns forever also for such price as it shall be appraised and valued by four trusty men and how much he shall pay yearly to his sisters.

"Peter Lehman married Ann Reiff, their daughter Maria married Joseph Burkholder. Joseph Burkholder lived on the farm directly north of Manheim, Penna. He died in 1826, his wife Maria died in 1838. This farm passed into the hands of his son Peter Burkholder who sold it in 1842 and moved with his family to West Unity, Williams County, Ohio. "There is no record of the unborn child mentioned in the will. The son, Abraham took the homestead about 1793. He married Ann Hershey. He paid the sisters their several shares. He was evidently a good husbandman. He cleared his debts and had considerable money loaned on notes when he died in May 1818. The total of the inventoryof his personal effects was $3321.97. His executors accounted for $4539.72. The farm which had been in his family for three generations was sold in 1824. This Abraham is the father of the Reiffs who went to Olivesburg, Ashland County, Ohio with their daughters Ann and Veronica, and sons Joseph, Christian and Samuel. Jacob, Abraham and Elizabeth remained in the East. Abraham Reiff left no will. His estate was settled by Abraham Reist and Jacob Shoemaker. One son, John the oldest, became lost to the family. Ann Reiff the widow, died April 23, 1855. Ann Reiff married Christian Harnley; Elizabeth married Joseph Burkholder (son of Joseph and Maria Lehman Burkholder); Veronica (Frainy) married William B. Porter. The widow's thirds were distributed in 1856. The heirs of John were Mrs. Sherborn and Mrs. Houseal of Maytown, Penna., daughters. A son, Abraham, could not be located. The other heirs all signed their releases. "The history of the children of Abraham Reiff is not familiar to the writer except those of Elizabeth who married Joseph Burkholder, which will be found later in the record. NOTE: Prepared by J.C. Burkholder, 722 North 16th st., Harrisburg, Penna." ------------------------------------------------------ pp. 7-9. "The begining of the Mennonite settlement at Salford (known as Skippack in the early years) has its roots in the great 1717 migration of Mennonites and other Swiss-Germans from the Palatinate in what is now southern Germany to southeastern Pennsylvania. This migration was the result of several factors, including heavy taxation of religious sects, lack of open land, several harsh winters in the Palatinate, and the promise of religious toleration and much better economic opportunity in Pennsylvania. For several generations these humble Mennonites had been tenant farmers on hofs (farms) in the Palatinate on both sides of the Rhine River. They had migrated up from the Bern and Zurich areas of Switzerland, after the Thirty Years War (1650 and following), upon the invitation of the land-owning nobility. They were known to be good farmers, and so were sought after to reclaim the fertial farmland after the devastation of the war. (ref. see John L. Ruth, 'Maintaining the right Fellowship', Scottdale, Pa., 1984, Chapters 1,2, and 4.). "After learning of the inexpensive, and open land in Pennsylvania, available for settlement and ownership, many of these tenant farmers could not resist the opportunity for economic betterment. And so they migrated by the boatloads, arriving in the summer and fall of 1717. Once here in Pennsylvania, these Palatines settled in areas that were just opening for settlement, including the Manatant (Pottstown-Coventry area), Hereford (southern Berks County), the Great Swamp (upper Bucks County) and what in another ten years would become Salford, the unestablished area northeast of Skippack or "Bebberstownship." (ref. ibid. 97-100). "So many Palatine immigrants landed at Philadelphia in August and September of 1717 that the governor, William Keith and his Provincial Council became alarmed with the possibility of being overwhelmed by "Germans." The Council then ordered that the "masters of the vessels who have lately imported any of these foreigners" be summoned to give an account of the number and characters of their passengers, and that all who had already landed and scattered be ordered to report to a magistrate to "take such Oaths....as are necessary to give assurances of their being well affected to his Majesty and his Government." "But the Council also noted: "But because some of these foreigners are said to be Menonists, who cannot for conscience sake take any Oaths, that those persons be admitted upon their giving any equivalent assurances in their own way and manner." (ref. 'Minutes of the Provincial Council of Pennsyvania,' Philadelphia, 1852, Volume 3, pp. 28-29; September 9 and 17, 1717.) "At the Septmber 9th, 1717 meeting of the Provincial Council, the captains of three ships reported on the numbers of Palatines (mostly Mennonites) they had just imported. Captain Richmond reported 164 passengers, Captain Tower 91, and Captain Eyers 108, making a total of 363 Palatines in one landing. On these three boats ere many of the first Mennonite settlers at Salford as well as the Manatant, Hereford, and Great Swamp. (ref. ibid. p. 29.) "Skippack had first been settled in 1703 by Dutch-speaking Mennonites from Germantown, and was already fairly full of settlers. In 1709, a small wave of Palatine settlement at Skippack had swelled this community. The families in this migration included four Kolb brothers (Henry, Jacob, Martin, and John), Michael Ziegler, Andreas Schrager, Garret Clemens and his sons John and Jacob, who later moved to Salford. (ref. Ruth, Maintaining the Right Fellowship, 86-89.)" "In the fall of 1717 (September-December) the following immigrant Mennonite families settled and bought land in what whould be known as Salford, then still a part of Skippack: ....[list includes Hans Reiff from Ibersheim, Palatinate] (ref.

General Notes: Note from Margaret Wells Becker: " 1. Robert of Spottsylvania 2. Robert SR. These are known as the Huddlestons of Buckingham Co., Va. since they all lived and held land in the county. Spottsylvania became Buckingham County. The first Huddleston to appear in America was a Capt. John Huddleston who served the Virginia Company as Master of the Bona Nova in 1620. He had tracts of land in and around Jamestown. As to what became of him I know little; but there is listed in the York County, Va. census of 1670 a Mrs. Huddleston and it was Capt. John Huddleston who aided Plymouth in 1622. --gap-- "Next Huddleston found is Robert Huddleston of Spottsylvania. The earliest listings are those of land holdings & witness to several documents in 1738 by Robert of Spottsylvania. Robert did have at least 2 children, a Robert Sr. and a John. In 1770 John conveyed to his brother, Rober, Sr., land deeded to him (John) by Robert of Spottsylvania. This land transaction stated that Robert of Spottsylvania acquired the land in 1741 and that John lived in Johnston Co., North Carolina. Family tree is continuous -no gaps- from this point; stemming from Thomas, Sr. of Buckingham Co., Va."

From Ramona Armstrong Duff. P.O.B.95, Hydro, Ok 73048-0095:
Death: Will was dated 1794. Will was probated 24 Jul 1797 in Bedfored
Co., Virginia. In his will, he lists over 2,000 acres of land which he leaves
to his wife and sons. (As early as 1756, he granted this land on the south side
of Bedford County by the king. Parts of this land are still owned by Ayres
descendents). This land was in the vicinity of Rock Castle Creek between
Moneta and White House. He also had 2 negro slave boys. His land in Maryland
was left to his son James Ayers, Jr.
Other information: His name is found spelled both Ayers and Ayres. In
his will he mentions 10 daughters and 1 son by name and then states the other
sons have already received their shares. The order of births of these children
is not known.
In the land records of Bedford County, Virginia - Deed Book 7, pg 366:
This day came Katherin Nichols before us Justices of the Peace
for the County of Bedford in the State of Virginia and made oath on the Holy
Evangelist of the Almighty God, That she had known James Ayres of said county
of Bedford from his infancy and that he was born in the County of Prince George

General Notes: The following notes are prepared by James Elwood Skaggs, 401 Midway Drive, Matthews, North Carolina 28104: Telephone Number: 704-821-3495, E-mail address: [email protected]

"Thomas Skaggs and Ann Wollard were united in marriage at the St. Sepulcher Church, Cambridge, England in late autumn, October 31, 1734. The age old church still is in use today.

Old Thomas and Ann, whose descendants were destined to become the famous "Longhunters of Kentucky", lived their appointed years and now they sleep. A more beautiful setting could not have been found; the mountains were beautiful, the famous New River close by and congenial people busy in the separate walks of life. The crumbled head stone has been made of sand-stone, seemingly; close by, other Skaggs were interred.

1774 Mar. 12, Thomas Skaggs granted 270 acres on Wolf Creek, Branch of Greenbrier. This land was first in Agusta county, then Botetourt, then Greenbrier, and finally Monroe, due to county changes.

The following information was obtained from various sources: L.D.S. films of the Deeds, Order Books, L.S.D. Family Sheets, and Gene Skaggs of Panhandle, Texas and Ida Lancaster of Amarillo, Texas.

There was also an Isaac Skaggs in this area at the same time. This puts Thomas right up at the border of Maryland. I still have not found a Bussel Skaggs.

Research Notes: "Ida Lancaster wrote: P.S. This is something that I did pick up while I was in London in June of l995. Family Name History---Skaggs. It was not until the early Middle ages that surnames were first used to distinguish between numbers of people bearing the same personal or Christian name. With the growth of documentation in the later Middle ages, such names became essential, and a person whose distinguishing name described his trade, his place of residence, his father's name, or some personal or physical characteristic, passed that name on to his children, and the surname became hereditary. The English surname Skaggs may be of two possible origins. Firstly, the surname Skaggs is of patronymic origin. Patronymic surnames are those names which derive their origin from the personal name of the father of the initial bearer. In this instance, the surname Skagg is a variant of the personal name Skegg. The "s" ending signifies "son of or descendant of", thus, the name sigifies "son of Skegg". Alternatively, the surname may be of nickname origin. Nickname surnames are those names which are based on a physical characteristic or personal attribute of the initial bearer. In this instance, the surname Skaggs is derived from the Old Norse word "skegg" meaning "beard". This would indicate that the original bearer of the name may have been one who had a rough, shaggy hair or a beard. The surname Skagg is derived from the Old Norse word "Skegg" meaning "beard". Reference to the surname Skagg or to a variant include one Thomas Skegge who lived in Yorkshire in l379 (Yorkshire Poll Tax). Also, a record of one Thomas Skegges who resided in Kent in l7l4 who was registered at St. Peter's Church. One Anthony Springmore and Sarah Skeggs were married at the St. George's Church. One Anthony Springsmore and Sarah Skeggs were married at the St. George's Chapel l790. The arms described below were granted to the Skegg family of Huntingdon in the year of l568.

Beazon of Arms: Per fess or and azure a chevron counter changed, in chief a lion passant guard of the second. Crest: A Demi peacock azure wings expanded or, beaked and combed gold. Origin: England I don't know how true all this is --- so don't take it for the gospel truth. Ida at the top of Texas [email protected]"

In response to my $25 payment to the Genealogicy Centre, of Londonderry, Northern Ireland to research the Skaggs surname there, I have received a response package. Here is their cover letter, in its entirety:

Dear Mr. Skaggs

Thank you for your completed research form and payment of $25.

According to A Dictionary of Surnames by P. Hanks and F. Hodges (Oxford University Press) the surname Skegg originates in Northern England where it is derived from an old Norse byname "skegg" which means "beard". Many names of English and Scottish origin settled in the northern part of Ireland during the 17th century Plantation of Ulster.

As you can see from the enclosed copies from Passenger and Immigration Lists Index there are three references to Skaggs (including variants) emigrating to North America:

Name Date Destination

Tho Skag 1654 Virginia Elizabeth Skagg 1730 Virginia Mrs. Jonas Skagges 1693 Delaware

We next checked the following indexes, but without success, for reference to Skaggs: 1. The International Genealogical Index for Ireland 2. Derry Diocesan Wills 1612 - 1858 3. Flax Growers' Lists for Ireland for 1796

In our entire database of church and civil records for the years prior to 1900 for county Derry (see enclosed lists of sources computerized by the Genealogy Centre) there is not one record of the surname Skaggs or its variants.

Although our database cannot confirm the County Derry origins of your Skaggs ancestors, I hope you find this report of interest.

Yours Sincerely Brian Mitchell

144. Heinrich Umberger, son of Rudolf "Rudi" Umberger and Elizabeth Wilhelm, was born in 1688 in Reihen, Heidelberg, Baden, Germany197 and died in Mar 1787 in Lebanon Twp., Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania138,143,192 at age 99.

General Notes: Aurthur Umberger writes in his book: "HEINRICH UMBERGER, the immigrant and his family emigrated from Germany via Holland to America in 1733 arriving at the Port of Philadelphia on 28 Aug. 1733. He and his wife Julian(a) and their three sons and two daughters came on the Ship HOPE of London, Daniel Reed, Master, from Rotterdam. Their names and ages on Master Reeds Ship List are as follows: Henrick Humberger 45, Hans Lenart 18, Miegel 15, Jans 10, Julian Humberger 47, Julian 12, Lisbet 8. Heinrich and his eldest son signed their names on the Oath of Allegiance to Pennsylvania roll as; HEINRICH UMBERGER and HANS LEONHARD UMBERGER respectively. "Heinrich Umberger and his family settled in Lebanon Twp., Lancaster county (now Lebanon Co.) Pa. The first records pinpointing their residence in Penna. were found in Baptismal and Marriage records of Rev. John Casper Stoever and the records of Hill Church (Berge Kirche)--the first church erected in the area of Lebanon Twp. and parts west and north. Both sons, Hans Leonard and Michael, appear on the marriage record; they both married in 1742, and daughter Julian married in 1744. Warranty of land records for Penna. show that Heinrich and his two eldest sons received grants for a total of 550 acres of land in Lebanon Twp., Lancaster Co., Pa. at various times between 1743 and 1751. Lancaster county Deeds also indicate that Heinrich Umberger acqured additional land in Lebanon Twp. "In February of 1766 Heinrich deeded the homestead of 240 acres to his youngest son John for 200 pounds. Heinrich's first wife, Julian, apparently died shortly after arriving in America. His Will, written in 1766, indicates his wife's name as Anna Maria Catharine and a daughter by the name of Catharine. This daughter married on 10 Jan 1751. Quoting from Heinrich's Will--'If my wife dies before me then instead of said 30 pounds only 20 pounds my said son John is to pay unto her daughters--10 lbs. to Anna Mary and 10 lbs. to Anna Margareth.' This quotation indicates that Heinrich's wife Anna Maria Catharine, had daughters by a previous marriage. " In the late 1770's or early 1780's residents in the area inhabited by Heinrich Umberger organized the Humberger School Association for the purpose of building a school for the community. The school house was built on a piece of land orginally owned by Heinrich Umberger. In a publication of the Lebanon County Historical Socitey entitled 'THE HUMBERGER SCHOOL ASSOCIATION AND ITS SCHOOL' 1911 by Cyrus Boger, it is stated, quote; 'That Humberger was respected and honored among these early settlers no other proof is needed than that they perpetuated his memory by naming their school after him.' "Heinrich and his three sons, Hans Leonard, Michael, and John resided in Lebanon Twp., Lancaster Co., (now Lebanon Co.) Pa. at the time of their deaths. Heinrich died in 1787 at the age of 99 years. Sometime in the mid 1780's four of his grandsons migrated to Wythe Co., Va. and established residences there for their descendants."

Further, it is my will and I do order that my son John shall pay from the said sum of 200 pounds, 5 pounds unto the representatives of my eldest son Leonard, deceased lately, before hand, as a prerogative, these payments being paid and receipts produced, shall be deducted from the 200 pound, and the remainder thereof equally shared and divided amon the rest of my childre, viz: One-fourth part thereof to the representatives of my eldest son Leonard, lately deceased: 2nd, another fourth part o my son Michael; a third fourth part unto my daughter, Juliana, married unto Philip Olinger; the fourth and last fourth part thereof unto my daughter Catharine, who is married unto John Baker [Becker? ed. note RJC]; for which sums or their shares my son John is to give them lawful bonds, and pay them successively from the eldest to the youngest; the first part being first paid, all off and out, and then the next beginning until all are paid, the only payments and all and every payment not being more than 15 pounds in every year at or before the 25th of December and no more; and it is my earnest desire and faithfully request, that all my children divide peaceably and lawfully my whole estate with the assistance of two or three hones men among them, without making use of the law.

General Notes: "The American Link. [http://www.browsholme.co.uk/america.htm]
Since the 'five daughters and severn sonnes' produced by Edmund Parker in the early 16th C, the family has dispersed from Lancashire, with each generation, to other parts of Britain and then around the world. Some of those migrations are recorded, while for others the link to the 'Parkers of Browsholme' has been lost. However the most significant migration for the family was to the then Colony of Virginia in 1680 and this link to Browsholme is described below:
Robert Parker of Browsholme (b.1527) married (1554), Elizabeth Chadderton of Nuthurst, Lancs. They produced four sons, the youngest being William Parker who went to Cornwall about 1580. Robert's father Edmund (c.1490 \endash 1547) bought a new lease of Nether Browsholme in 1507 and for his wife, Elizabeth, the heiress of John Redmayne, he built the present house. (see Genealogy for earlier Parker ancestors).
William Parker (1560-1631) now Archdeacon of Cornwall married Joan Panchard (m.1589) and they had a two sons the eldest being James Parker.
James Parker (1590-1672) the eldest son of William, married Katherine Buller, of Shillington Cornwall on 12th December 1616; Richard was the 9th child and the 4th son of this marriage that produced 21 children!
Richard Parker (1630-1677 the 'emigrant') emigrated to the Colony of Virginia, arriving in Nasemond County in 1647 it is said due to a price being put on his head by Oliver Cromwell, for his support of Charles I and the royalist army.
I am grateful to Waunita Powell who has carried out detailed research into the confusion caused by the coincidence of three Richard Parkers residing in VA. during the mid 17thC. She has determined that Richard Parker (of Browsholme) married Mary Perkins a widow and former Londoner:
"Richard, ye 9th, Dr. of Physick went to Virginy, married a Londoner and had issue six children, liveth upon Saint James River, in ye Uplands of Virginy, hath been High Sheriff of sd County."
As time permits I would like to produce a family tree of Richards descendants; in the meantime Ican do no better than link to Waunita Powells manuscript. 'The Three Parkers of VA'."

General Notes: [Three Richards in Va.]
"My View of Dr. Richard Parker by Waunita Powell
Dr. Richard Parker was Christened in Nov. 29, 1630 at Warlegon in England. His father was James Parker, Knight, and Gentleman. James at age 25/26 married in 1616 Katherine Buller age 16. Their home was at Browsholme Hall in Yorkshire, England. The Buller family was an ancient and respectable family seated in Cornwall, dating back to the reign of Elizabeth (1558-1603). Katherine was a descendant of Geoffrey Plantagent. Dr. Richard Parker's Grandfather, William Parker, was Arch Deacon of Blisland, whose lineage is traced back to Giles Parker through his son, Edmund Parker, who died 1547, and to Monk Wm. Le Parker, seated in Lancashire, England. Wm. Le Parker received land 1395 and was styled "De Monk Hall in Extwistle".
Rowland Parker, a younger son of James, left an account of the family written Sept. 1, 1673. This account was found in an old Common Place Book now at Browsholme, the home of the Parker family in Yorkshire. Rowland listed 21 children. (ref. Va. Mag. Vol 5) He stated: Richard, ye 9th, Dr. of Physick went to Virginy, married a Londoner and had issue six children, liveth upon Saint James River, in ye Uplands of Virginy, hath been High Sheriff of sd Countyl."

[The Parkers of Browsholme http://www.browsholme.co.uk/genealogy.htm Genealogy
"The Parkers of Browsholme are descended from Peter de Alcancotes, who held the Manor of Alkincoats in Colne in the mid 13th Century. The succession went from his son Adam, living at Alkincoats in 1311, to Adam's younger son Richard le Parker of Trawden, to Richard's son Edmund Parker, park-keeper of Radholme Laund, near Browsholme, one of the two great deer parks in the Forest of Bowland. In 1393 his sons Richard and John were deputy parkers of Radholme, but from 1380 they had a lease of the vaccary, or cow pasture, of Browsholme, which was renewed in 1400.
Richard, who probably built the original house on the present site at Nether Browsholme (there was formerly an Over Browsholme to the north) received a pension in 1411 and was succeeded by his son Edmund Parker of Foulscales and Nether Browsholme. He was followed by his son Giles Parker of Horrocksford, tenant ofNether Browsholme in 1482, who is buried in Waddington Church. His second son Edmund Parker obtained a new lease of Nether Browsholme in 1507: it was he who built the present house and is commemorated in the cushion in the Hall, produced for Dugdale's Visitation in 1665. He died in 1547: his wife had been the heiress ofJohn Redmayne, and through her mother co heiress of her husband's great-uncle Robert, appointed Parker of Radholmein 1434.
Edmund's son Robert Parker, Bowbearer of the Forest of Bowland, married in 1554 Elizabeth Chadderton, whose brother William was successively Bishop of Chester (1579-1595) and Lincoln (1595-1608). Robert Parker's younger son Roger was Dean of Lincoln from 1613-1629; his youngest son William was Archdeacon of Cornwall. Robert Parker was succeeded by his second son Thomas, his eldest son Edmund having been drowned at Cambridge. Thomas Parker Bowbearer of the Forest of Bowland, purchased the freehold of Browsholme from the Crown in 1603 and proceeded to embellish the house, which had already been enlarged by his father. Thomas's wife Bridget was a Tempest, and it was presumably through her that he was able to buy the advowson of Waddington Church from the Tempests in 1630 in which year he was fined /J25 for not attending Charles l's coronation to receive a knighthood. He died in 1634.
Thomas was succeeded by his third son, Edward Parker (1602- 1667) who married in 1629 Mary Sunderland, grand-daughter of Sir Richard Saltonshall, Lord Mayor of London. In 1643 Edward Parker received letters of protection from Generals Fairfax and Lambert and in 1644 from Richard Shuttleworth of Gawthorpe, all Parliament men. In 1648 he received another from General Thomas Tyldesley, a Royalist. In 1660 he records among other losses suffered during the Civil War that his son Edward, then aged seven, was in 1643 taken prisoner and carried to the garrison at Thornton. His brother-in-law Captain Thomas Whittingham was killed at the battle of Newbury in 1644. As a justice of the peace he was ordered in 1660 to find and seize arms belonging to 'Quakers, Anabaptists and Fifth Monarchic Men'.
Edward was succeeded by his eldest son Thomas Parker (1631- 1695) a firm Royalist, appointed a Captain of Foot in 1660, an appointment renewed by the Duke of Buckingham in 1661. Thomas married Margaret, a daughter of Radcliffe Assheton of Cuerdale. In 1674 he had beautified Browsholme with 'rare perspectives', according to a letter from his uncle William, Archdeacon of Cornwall, which presumably alludes to the formal garden recorded in a drawing of 1719. Thomas's brother Robert (1633-1719) was not only the founder ofWaddington Hospital but also a noted antiquary and numismatist.
Thomas was succeeded by his eldest son Edward Parker (1658- 1721) who first married Catherine, heiress of Henri Bouch of Ingleton Hall, and secondly Jane, daughter of John Parker of Extwistle. He built the small east wing, begun in 1711. Thomas was followed by his eldest son, Thomas Parker (1689-1728) who left the estate to his half-brother and heir, John Parker (1695-1754) Bowbearer of the Forest of Bowland, who married Elizabeth daughter of Henry Southouse ofManaden in Essex. John replanned the front garden and built the new stables. His only daughter Elizabeth married her second cousin, Robert Parker of Alkincoats (1720-1758).
John was succeeded by his only son Edward Parker (1730-1794), Bowbearer of the Forest ofBowland, who in 1750 married Barbara Fleming, daughter and co-heiress of Sir William Fleming of Rydal Hall, Westrnorland. In 1755 her sister Catherine married Sir Peter Leicester of Tabley Hall, Cheshire. In 1771 Edward Parker was buying silver from Parker and Wakelin, the London goldsmiths: his son and successor John Parker (1755-1797), Bowbearer of the Forest of Bowland, was also a customer from 1773 to 1780. John accompanied William Gilpin, the celebrated discoverer of the picturesque in landscape, on his travels. In 1778 he married Beatrice Lister of Gisburne Park, sister of the first Lord Ribblesdale. In 1780 he was returned as one of the two MPs for Clitheroe, a rotten borough dominated by the Curzon and Lister families. John's election followed a quarrel between the two factions, but in 1782, never having spoken in Parliament, he resigned his seat, thus effecting a reconciliation.
'Calm was the day, the face of nature bright,
When thou, sweet babe! didst first behold the light,
Be this auspicious of a placid life
And soul unruffled with internal strife'.
So began a set ofverses by the Rev. Thomas Wilson (1747-1813), Master of Clitheroe Grammar School, to commemorate the birth of John's eldest son and successor, Thomas Lister Parker (1779- 1858), Bowbearer of the Forest of Bowland. They proved sadly unprophetic. Brought up at Marshfield, a house in Settle, T. L. Parker was a promising youth who already in 1797, when at Christ's College, Cambridge, his father's old college, cultivated learned society, including the Rev. Richard Buck, the collector, and Thomas Kerrick, the antiquary. At Browsholme his circle included Wilson, his old master, Thomas Dunham Whitaker, and Charles Towneley.
He first patronised Turner in 1798 and probably introduced the painter to his cousin SirJohn Leicester ofTabley and to his close friend Walter Fawkes of Farnley, two of Turner's great patrons. He also patronised Romney, Northcote, Callcott and Buckler, the latter assisting him in his alterations to Browsholme, part of which were designed by Jeifry Wyatt in 1805 and 1807. Landscape gardening and forestry were other interests, and he planted thirty-four acres of Bashall Moor from 1807 to 1813. After a grand tour to Russia, Italy and France in 1801 to 1802, T. L. Parker began to spend time amid the highest society in London, attending Royal Academy dinners and being noticed by the Prince Regent and the Duke of Clarence.
From about 1804 to 1806 his admiration for the young actor Master William Betty, led him to commission portraits from Northcote and Opie and to follow his idol from town to town with lavish presents. From 1813 to 1817 he had an elegant London house at 10 South Audley Street, of which Buckler did drawings in 1813. In 1824, having over-spent T. L. Parker was obliged to sell Browsholme, its contents and estate, to his heir Thomas Parker of Alkincoats and Newton at once his second and fourth cousin.
In 1827 T. L. Parker was appointed Sergeant Trumpeter to the King, a sinecure which produced little income. Even after Thomas Parker died in 1832 and Browsholme was inherited by his nephew, Thomas Goulbourne Parker (18 18-1879) T. L. Parker continued to take the most affectionate interest in his old home. From 1824 until his death he seems to have lived a nomadic existence, staying in the great houses of his friends, including Knowsley, Tabley and Stourhead, and befriending young architects, landscape gardeners and artists such as Salvin, Nesfield and Lear. His status as a great pioneer in antiquarian scholarship was recognised by the dedication to him of Shaw's Specimens of Ancient Furniture (1836), the first serious work on this subject. In 1857 he was carried round the great Manchester Art Treasures Exhibition, still full of knowledge and enthusiasm. The inventory of possessions taken after his death at the Star Inn, Deansgate, Manchester, is pitiful, but at Browsholme Notice issued by Thomas Parker, Bowbearer of the Forest of Bowland, in his antiquarian re-creation of a stately home survives remarkably intact.
T. L. Parker's successor but one, Thomas Goulbourne Parker, held Browsholme for 47 years. In 1845 he married Mary Ann Carr, co-heiress of the estates of John Carr (1723-1807), the great Yorkshire architect. T. G. Parker was friendly with Abraham Kirkman, a distinguished antiquary who had known T. L. Parker, and in 1865 Kirkman bequeathed his collection of armour and pottery to Browsholme. T. G. Parker also restored the house, using Mr. Shaw of Saddleworth as his architect. He was succeeded by his eldest son Edward Parker (1846-1894) a keen sportsman who died without issue.
The estate then passed to Edward's brother, John William Robinson Parker (1857-1938) whose wife Beatrice Burn-Murdoch was his first cousin, and also a descendant of John Carr. On his return from the Boer War his carriage was pulled up the drive under a series of triumphal arches by tenants from Browsholme, Alkincoats and Can Lodge. Among his many interests Colonel Parker was a keen antiquary, President of the Yorkshire Archaeological Society, the Yorkshire Parish Register Society, the Chetham Society, the Lancashire and Cheshire Antiquarian Society and the Harleian Society. He published several volumes of mediaeval records.
Colonel Parker was succeeded by his only son Robert Goulboume Parker (1900-1975). He was a distinguished soldier who repaired Browsholme in 1958 with the aid of the Historic Buildings Council, and from 1957 onwards opened the house to the public, personally guiding visitors. He left Browsholme to the present owner, his cousin and godson, Robert Redmayne Parker, a Chartered Surveyor, who is a descendant of John Parker, uncle of the Thomas Parker who bought Browsholme from Thomas Lister Parker in 1824. The branch of the Parkers of Browsholme now in residence is most remarkable for having produced distinguished judges in three successive generations, Robert John Parker, Baron Parker of Waddington (1857-1918), a Lord of Appeal, Hubert Lister Parker, Baron Parker of Waddington (1900-1972), Lord Chief Justice of England, and Roger Jocelyn Parker, Lord Justice Parker, who conducted the Windscale Enquiry in 1978. The present owner's father, Edmund Christopher Parker, a Chartered Surveyor, lives at Browsholme with his wife and helps to administer and restore the estate."
