202 A Lt. in the Revolution "and served with the marines on privateers and was twice taken prisoner by the British" (S37). A discussion of his wartime service appears in McLellan's History of Gorham. He owned a slave named Plato who also served, "enlisting in 1777 in Capt. Paul Ellis's company, Col. Bigelow's regiment."

The Maine Historical Society has this document: "McLellan, Cary, Account book, 1775-1793. Resident of Gorham, Me. Includes general store accounts."

McLellan, Cary, Gorham. 2d Lieutenant, Capt Hart Williams's co., which marched April 21, 1775, in response to the alarm of April 19, 1775, service, 3 days; reported enlisted into the army April 24, 1775; also, Ensign, Capt.

208 A medical doctor. Le Doux, Lucien A. (I14817)
 
209 A medical doctor. He was a Dr. and a major in the arm when he got married.

I take his vital information from his entry in the Register of the General Society of the War of 1812. He was a member tracing his line back to Zenon Le Doux Sr., m. Adelaide Armand, and Zenon Le Doux Jr., who m. Mathilde Vignes. This is his full biographical entry:

210 A member of Company A of the First/Second Maryland Cavalry, as with his brother David. Thomas, however, entered as a 1st Lieutenant and ended his service as Captain. He is included on the Civil War pageGriffith, Thomas (I2959)
 
211 A member of Company B of Mosby's Rangers; he was one of the sergeants appointed when the company was formed in October of 1863. Warfield, Richard Dorsey (I10294)
 
212 A member of the DAR, following her family back through her mother's side back several generations to Charles Glidden (b. 1713). According to the DAR, "Charles Glidden, (1713-1808), who had served in the early wars, was selectman 1775 and member of the General Assembly to act upon the Federal Constitution. At the Lexington Alarm the veteran soldier marched with one hundred volunteers from Nottingham. He was born in Nottingham; died in Northfield, N. H." Woodward, Anna Glidden (I82)
 
213 A member of the General Assembly representing Anne Arundel Co. in the 1660s.

Will probated 19 Feb. 1686/87.

The problem with saying that he was born in Truro, Wales, as it says on the sign outside of the church, is that Truro is in Cornwall? 
Burgess, Col. William (I6517)
 
214 A member of the Merchant Tailors' Company of London.

215 A member of the South River Club, and well connected in political circles. He was U.S. Charge d'Affaires to Belgium, 1837-42. He wrote The Maryland Resolutions, and the Objections to Them Considered, By a Citizen of Maryland (Baltimore, MD: E.J. Coale & Co., 1822), which was an argument against a new tax to benefit the Maryland public schools.

On his tombstone in the family plot at "Tulip Hill": "Killed by the bursting of a gun on board the Princeton 28 Feb., 1844 in his 60th year."

See this collection at the Library of Congress: "Galloway-Maxcy-Markoe family papers, 1654-1888 (bulk 1750-1860)." Here is the collection description:

219 A news report in the New Orleans Item, 30 Oct. 1921, p1, "Slaying of N.O. Man in Frisco is Police Mystery," tells of the murder of his brother Edward Pontico in San Francisco. Pontico, Joseph (I14520)
 
220 A note by Francis McDonald, to Metta T. Lansdale, dated 22 Oct. 1993:

Thank you for your card of 13 Sept in which you say that you never heard of Vera. She as you know now, was sister of Friench (Dr.), Stephen Harbert, & James Hendley Simpson.

My mother told me that she married a man named "Watts" who was from San Antonion. Mother said that Watts wa a man who did not and never amounted to much, & that she was afraid that Vera had a sad life. Watts was a _______. [his profession--word ends in "ber"?]

About 15 years ago I was working in my office looking up a point of law, and I am across a case--by the San Antonio Court of Appeals--dated about 1935 to 1940. The case was between Vera and her brothers. It seems that earlier on they had advances Vera some money, and had taken a deed to her interest in the Simpson Rance (some 700 acres in Fayette County belong orginally to g grandmother Emily Dye Simpson). Later on gas an/or oil was discoveredand the land became much more valuable. Vera & her children filed the case contending the advance of money was a loan - and that the deed was in truth a mortgage. Vera wanted to repay the money advanced and leave to deed cancelled. Her brothers said thte deed was a deed, and the money advanced as not a loan, but payment for her interest in the land. She lost the case in the District Court and also in the Court of Appeals.

I am sure she is dead - but I have not gone forward with find out about Uncle Friench's folks - except for what you have.
Let us hear from you,
Love. 
Simpson, Vera (I4165)
 
221 A note in Calvary Episcopal Church records says “removed to Texas Miriam Maupay Girard Ave.” Event date given is “1884-1901.”

She appears in city directories in Houston in 1887-1890, and in Galveston in 1893. She is living in each case with “A.R. Carter”: this would be Alfred Ross Carter (I14147), the husband of her niece Ella Amanda Maupay (I14133), the daughter of her uncle William Augustus). In 1893 William A. Maupay is also living with A.R. Carter; this could be William Augustus Sr. or Jr.—probably Jr., I’d expect.

In 1891 only William A. appears with A.R. Carter in the directory in Galveston, not Miriam.

She appears again in Philadelphia in the 1900 census. 
Maupay, Miriam Louisa (I6220)
 
222 A note in the Maryland GenSoc Bulletin 33.2 (Spring, 1992) page 404 mentions that "Richard Wells, Jr. married Sophia Ewen, daughter of Captain Richard Ewen, a Puritan from Virginia . . . his widow remarried to Henry Beedle."

For evidence that she is the daughter of Richard Ewen, her sister Susannah's will mentions "brothers Richard and John Ewen, sisters Anne Ewen, Sophia, Eliza: Talbott, and Susannah Burgess, brother-in-law Thomas Billingsley, Edward Parrish and Walter Carr" (MD Calendar of Wills, vol. 1). 
Ewen, Sophia (I8917)
 
223 A notebook of his was preserved at Essex (now at the MHS), full of how to do all sorts of mathematical problems. It seems to be from when he was a young man--1810 or so? This is a guess.

In 1832 he appears as the Sherriff of Anne Arundel County; see the Maryland State Archives website, Session Laws 1832, vol. 574, page 389.

Edward Marriot was the executor of his will in abt. 1864, according to a receipt (a blank one to have been used at the auction of his estate).

He appears in Franklin Waters' ledger book A, fol. 218, for 1856.

228 A physician, who moved to Atlanta. Hutchinson, Dr. Humphrey Grey (I2835)
 
229 A Pierre Arnaud, aged 70, died in New Orleans on 9 June 1840.

There are many families named Arnaud in Bandol, Var; between 1815 and 1840 a few are born every year. 
Arnaud, Pierre Auguste (I13656)
 
230 A Pierre Pitard married Périnne Drouadanne (daughter of Jean) on 25 Jul 1758 in Corps-Nuds. I connect that marriage to this Pierre: though the marriage record is not clear on Pierre’s parents, it’s a logical conclusion. Here is the logic:

1) no parents are named on the marriage record; presumably this is because both were deceased on 1758, and that fits this Pierre.

2) He’s a minor, which required a judge’s approval since his parents were deceased. He was 23 at the time, but the age of consent had to be 25.

3) Guillaume François Pitard, his half-brother (son of Bon’s first wife) was a witness to the marriage.

4) There aren’t that many Pierre Pitards to choose from in Corps-Nuds, and the marriage record says that the husband and wife are both from Corps-Nuds.

(Thanks to David Quénéhervé for help here.) 
Pitard, Pierre (I13968)
 
231 A politician and lawyer. His papers are kept at the University of Maryland and in the Maryland State Archives.

243 A section on him, taken from the biography of his father:

"Cooper, Asahel Walker, the lawyer, is a son of Asahel Walker Cooper, who was born in Lancaster County, Pa., Sept. 5, 1806, and died in New Orleans, May 22, 1883, and who was a son of a Quaker [ . . . ] Asahel Walker Cooper, who was born in New Orleans, Nov. 26, 1874, educated at Jesuit College, then took a preparatory course at Andover, Mass., and graduated from Yale College with the degree of A. B. in 1897, and in 1898 obtained his degree of LL. B. from Tulane University. He read law with the late Judge A. G. Brice and was associated with him in the practice of law until the death of Judge Brice. He now holds rank among the lawyers of New Orleans. He comes of an excellent family of New Orleans. His father was a prominent citizen of this city for many years, and numbered among that class of citizens who constituted what was known as the American colony in New Orleans. The elder Mr. Cooper was reared a Quaker, but in New Orleans was identified with the Presbyterian church. The present Asahel W. Cooper adheres to the church faith of his mother--the Roman Catholic."

Here is a second biography, taken from John Kendall Smith, History of New Orleans vol. 2 (Chicago: Lewis, 1922): 823-24:

"ASAHEL WALKER COOPER is a lawyer whose name has been associated with increasing distinction and service in his profession at New Orleans for over two decades. He is a native of the city and the Cooper family has lived in New Orleans for ninety years,

"His father, Asahel Walker Cooper, belonged to what was known as the American Colony of New Orleans. He was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, September 5, 1806, was the son of a Quaker and was reared in that faith, though in New Orleans he was identified with the Presbyterian Church. He acquired a common school education in Pennsylvania, learned the carpenter's trade as a bound apprentice at Philadelphia, and in 1830 came to New Orleans by sailing vessel. In a few years his skilled work proved the basis of an expanding business as a contractor and architect, and for many years he was one of the prosperous business men of New Orleans. He erected a large number of substantial structures in the business and residence sections of the city prior to and after the war, and continued in business until 1870. Prior to the war he acquired the Cooper Cotton Press, a noted piece of property which remained in the family possession until 1912, when it was sold to the Texas & Pacific.

"The first wife of the senior Mr. Cooper was Ann Sullivan, who died in 1870, the mother of two daughters, Sarah Jane, who married Alden McLellan, Sr., and Margaret Ann, who married Thomas G.P. Tureman. In 1872 he married Eliza A. Loney, of French and Irish parentage and a native of Ontario, Canada. She died in 1910, her only child being the New Orleans lawyer.

"Asahel Walker Cooper was born in New Orleans November 26, 1874, was reared a Catholic, the faith of his mother, was educated in the Jesuit College, and was then sent to New England and after attending preparatory school at Andover, Massachusetts, entered Yale University, where he was graduated with the A.B. degree in 1897. Mr. Cooper then returned to New Orleans, read law with the late Judge A.G. Brice, and received the LL. B. degree from Tulane University in 1898. Mr. Cooper was actively associated with Judge Brice until the latter's death and has always enjoyed a prosperous share in the work of his profession." 
Cooper, Asahel Walker Jr. (I4554)
 
244 A shoemaker, and early resident of Harlem, New Amsterdam. Snyderken, Jan (I9433)
 
245 A signer of the Mayflower Compact. He came to the colony as an indentured servant of John Carver; the Carver's left their entire estate to him, and he promptly bought his freedom.

See: Lucy Mary Kellogg and Ann Smith Lainhart, Family of John Howland: the First Four Generations of his Children Lydia, Hannah, Joseph, Jabez, Ruth, and Isaac (2006).

246 A site about the archaelogy of Jamestown, with information on the park site and history. Source (S452)
 
247 A soldier under Major Appletone in the wars at Narragansett in 1675, and under Captain Brocklebank when the capt. was slain in April, 1676. Boynton, Joshua (I14308)
 
248 A surgeon. Contee, Peter (I10173)
 
249 A Susie O. Gill, b. Apr. 1895, appears on the 1900 census in Tangipahoa Co., Louisiana. Gill, Ola (I14975)
 
250 A Thomas (age 21) and a "Zack" (age 17) Tureman appear as brothers on the 1850 census for Gainesville, Sumter Co., Alabama. Father is "Zach" Tureman, aged 50.

Streets give his last name as "Truman," I suspect because she was deep into Chester county Quakers, where there is also a family names Truman, in his wife Margaret's direct ancestry.

A Thomas Y. Payne was marred to Elizabeth A. Tureman in Mason Co., Kentucky on 9 Feb. 1827.

There is this record in Booth's compendium of LA Confederate Soldiers: "Tureman, T. T. P., 1st Lt. Co. G, 3rd Regt. 3rd Brig. 1st Div. La. Mil. On Roll not dated, ordered into the service of the State of Louisiana." (I assume "T." a typo for "Y."). I'm not sure what unit this was; "militia" would seem to indicate one of the Louisiana volunteer State troops, but Bergeron at least designates these with names not numbers.

There was also a "T.Z.P. Tureman" who was a private in Greenleaf's Company, Louisiana Cavalry (Orleans Light Horse).

There are two confederate pension applications with this name in New Orleans:
