525 According to Irvineclan.com, "When Capt. Peter Simons Fayssoux died in 1833, his eldest son, Edwards Smith Fayssoux, was appointed to fill his position, which position he held until his death in September 15, 1852, unmarried.  After Edwards Smith Fayssoux's death, the family left the Arsenal. Peter Simons Fayssoux's grave was removed many years ago from a Philadelphia burying ground to the Leiper Presbyterian Churchyard near Swarthmore, PA.  His widow, Rebekah (Irvine) Fayssoux spent her last years with her daughters, Mrs. Thomas Sumter Mills and Mrs. Samuel J. Randell, in Chester, SC., where she is buried in Evergreen Cemetery." Fayssoux, Peter Simons Jr. (I3105)
 
526 According to Acadians in Gray, "René Jean Baptiste, son of Pierre Hacker and Marie Louise Mahe-Desportas of New Orleans, married Émile Léocade, daughter of Samuel Charles Meyer and widow of Ursin Gonsoulin, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in December 1835. They crossed the Atchafalaya Basin and moved to the New Iberia area, where they raised a large family. The New Iberia priests tended to call René Jean Baptiste an Achée or Haché, but he was neither." There is a Hacker St. in New Iberia, apparently.

He died, with his daughter Leocade, and a nephew un-named in newspaper reports, in the burning of the steamer "Gipsy”; see an image here: http://steamboattimes.com/images/artwork/giantsteamboats_hippolytesebron1600x1100.jpg. I assume that this nephew was his sister Amelie's son Octave Florian Pitard, who would be the same age as this nephew, described as a "lad of 13" in contemporary newspaper accounts. Newspapers says that the fire occurred on a wharf on the Mississippi at the “mouth of the New River” or at “New River Landing.” The New River doesn’t empty into the Mississippi any more; according to Wikipedia, “Before the levees were built to contain the Mississippi River, the New River was a distributary and a much larger river than it is today.” It entered a few miles south of Placquemine in Ascension Parish. The “lad” is probably Octave Florian Pitard, b. 1841, his nephew (son of his sister Marguerite) who would have been about that age.

He appears in an episode of Who Do You Think You Are as the GGG Grandfather of actor Jim Parsons. The episode (Season 4, Ep. 8) mentions a tribute notice by the social group the “Cannoniers” appeared after his death in the Southern Sentinel. It’s not clear where the newspaper was published, though the tagline is “Plaquemine,” the county seat of Iberville Parish. Some discussion of the episode can be found on Ancestry.com’s blog, here: http://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/2013/09/11/jim-parsons-finds-storied-ancestors-from-new-orleans-to-versailles/. Another is on the blog Ancestral Discoveries, here: http://ancestraldiscoveries.blogspot.com/2013/09/who-do-you-think-you-are-jim-parsons.html. 
Hacker, Dr. Jean Baptiste (I9592)
 
527 According to Siebermacher's Wappenbuch,
"Ein Sohn erster Ehe: Otto meldete sich 1620 bei der Kurländischen Rittererbank, musste aber damals wegen nichtgenügender Adelsbeweisen abgewiesen werden und erlangte erst laut Ritterbankabschied vom 2. Angust 1631 die Eintragung in die Kurlandische Adelsmatrikel sub Nr. 93 (94 der heutigen Matrikel) und zwar bei classe II (,,Familien, so ihren Adel durch Siegel und Briefe, d. h. durch Urkunden bewiesen haben");
"A son of [Otto Blomberg's] first marriage, Otto [Hahnebohm], registered with the Kurlandisch Ritterbank in 1620, but had to be rejected at the time because of insufficient proof of nobility and, according to Ritterbank, only obtained entry into the Kurlandisch Register of Nobles on 2 August 1631 under No. 93 (94 in today's register), and then in class II ('families that have proven their nobility by rules and letters, i.e. by documents')."

About the Adelsmatrikel in general, see the Wikipedia article about the "Baltic Knighthoods." "Rosenberg" is one of the Kurland families. These are the families whose genealogies appear in the Kurland Ritterschafts Archiv. 
von Rosenberg, Otto Hahnebohm (I3203)
 
528 According to a descendant who owns the painting of her, “The painting is unsigned, but is painted in the a style similar to [her daughter] Marie Ernestine Bres McLellan, who was an accomplished painter.” Benedict, Alice Louise (I4528)
 
529 According to a descendant, “She and Robert moved to Bond Co., Il in March 1864 from Blount Co. TN with several other family members.”

In 1910. she was living in Illinois with her son James Archibald Strain and his family. 
Grisham, Elizabeth Serena (I5039)
 
530 According to a history of Lancaster County, Pa., "Lewis Walker, one of the descendants, became a follower of George Fox, who was at this period establishing the Quaker or Friends Society, and thereby was disowned by his kinsmen and ancestry, and in every manner separated from them in social, secular, and religious interests, and deprived of all government honors heretofore inherited or possessed; or, in the language of a follower of George Fox, ‘he laid down these honors conferred by government.' He left his mother-country about 1684, settling at or near Valley Forge, Chester Co., purchasing from William Penn (his particular friend and companion and co-worker in establishing the doctrines of the Society of Friends or Quakers) one thousand acres of land, continuing to pursue his original occupation, that of husbandry, in a style much like his ancestors of England."

He is included on the Quaker Ancestors page.

This is about one of his descendants: "William Thomas, the father of Sarah (Thomas) Anderson [. . .] was the second child and eldest son of Reese and Priscilla (Jarman) Thomas, and was born in the old Thomas "Mansion House" erected by his father, July 8, 1762, and lived there all his life. He married, April 5, 1768, Naomi Walker, born February 17, 1765, died May 4, 1817, daughter of Joseph and Sarah (Thomas) Walker, granddaughter of Isaac and Sarah (Jarman) Walker, and great-granddaughter of Lewis Walker, who had come from Merionethshire, Wales, in 1687, [. . .] removed to Tredyffrin township, Chester county [. . .] Here Lewis Walker died in the winter of 1728-9, his will dated December 14, 1728, being proven January 24, 1728-9. He had married at Haverford Meeting, April 27, 1693, Mary Morris, a native of Wales, who is said to have crossed the ocean in the same ship with him. She died in 1747." 
Walker, Lewis (I4548)

537 According to a study quoted in Noyes, he "was a 'Captain of a troop of horse' and was killed in a battle at Andover, 1696, by the French and Indians. This seems to have been of the many errors in that remarkable book. He was evidently only serving temporarily for the protection of Andover when he was killed by the Indians, August 13, 1696." Peters, William (I4348)

548 According to Alma Julie von Rosenberg's notes, she was "repeatedly referred to as the aunt and guardian of the Froelich girls, who became orphans and went to old Garossen and then to Russia as governesses and never returned." von Ruckteschell, Ottilie Amalie Nadia "Ida" (I5471)
 
549 According to an article about a lawsuit she attempted to bring to recover money her ancestors lost on being expelled from Cuba in 1809,

"She is said to have been a woman of marked ability: she headed the Matthey-Picard Institut of Esplanade avenue, which was know throughout the state, and was an authority on French Literature." 
Hacker, "Emma" Louise Ursule (I13625)
 
550 According to an IRS lawsuit following the divorce from her husband:

Calvin H. Sugg, hereinafter called the petitioner, married Inis H. Sugg, his former wife, on August 1, 1920. They were married in California, and lived there until January of 1926. when they moved to Irion County, Texas. They lived there until June of 1927, when they returned to California. Since June of 1927. Inis Sugg has lived in California. There are two children of that union, Eleanor and Marion born August 7, 1921, and December 6. 1924. respectively. In 1928 Calvin Sugg and Inis Sugg separated permanently. On January 25, 1929. petitioner filed a suit for divorce against Inis Sugg in the District Court of Irion County, Texas. She did not contest the divorce suit. The District Court entered final judgment in the divorce proceeding on February 26, 1929. There was no appeal taken. The decree became final and remains in full force. The judgment dissolved the marriage and granted a divorce to petitioner. The divorce decree was brief. It made no mention of or reference to alimony, to the disposition of property, community or other property of the parties, or to the custody and support of the two children.

In the 1930 census she is HOH, and she is not living with her husband, though Sugg is her last name. No-one in the household is given a profession. There is a housekeeper living there, Harriet Salinger, aged 53, born in New Hampshire.

According to the IRS suit, “Inis Sugg remarried on November 14, 1936,” though her second husband’s name is not mentioned. California Death Records have an Inis Kinsey, b. 22 Aug. 1898 in Indiana and d. 1 Aug. 1965 in LA County, CA. Her mother was born _________ Hutton. 
Hubbard, Inis Hutton (I5153)
 
551 According to Arliss, "Edmund and Mary Jenings . . . lived for many years on the Anne Arundel County estate of his uncle, Edmund Jenings Esq., who had left the property in their care, but not ownership thereof, in his will of 1756. The Maryland land devised to their heirs lay in Montgomery County, Maryland." Jennings, Edmond Sr. (I5354)
 
552 According to Badger, he was "In Revolutionary War, 5th Md. Regiment. Disch. 1780." Linthicum, Francis Jr. (I12105)
 
553 According to Baldwin,

"The earliest traceable ancestor was Richard Wawen of Staindrop in Yorkshire (Wawen, Wawne, and Woane being some of the variant spellings which are seen in the early records). Nearby, in the parish of Chipping, co. Lancaster, was the prominent Waln family of Thornley, which can be traced back at least to the early 15th century [see the Victoria County History of Lancashire, under Chipping], and it is reasonable to speculate that there was some kind of relation, but the connection, if any, has not been found.
First generation:
Richard Wawen, of Staindrop, in the township of Newton in Bolland, and parish of Slaidburn, Yorkshire, husbandman, is known only from his will, which was written 5 July 1605, and proved at York on 12 Sep 1610. [Will in York registry, vol. 31, p. 418, FHL film #99497] The name of his wife is not known. In addition to his wife and children, he had two illegitimate sons by a woman whose first name is not recorded, but whose last name was presumably Procter. He left one third of his estate to his wife, one third to his legitimate children, and the other third to his two illegitimate sons. There seems to have been some concern on his part that his children might challenge the will, as he made provisions against such a possibility.
Children of Richard Wawen, by his unnamed wife:
1. Richard Wawen, md. Jennett.
2. daughter, md. William Sharples.
3. Katherine Wawen, md. 17 Sep 1598, Bolton by Bowland, Yorkshire, Richard Swinlehurst.
Illegitimate children of Richard Wawen (presumably by a Miss Procter):
+4. Nicholas Wawen alias Procter, d. July/Oct 1648, md. Jane
5. Thomas Wawen alias Procter, of Slainmerow, co. York, bur. 30 May 1635, Slaidburn, co. York. The will of Thomas Wawne of Slainmayraw in Bolland, Yorkshire, bachelor, written 3 December 1634, proved 1 October 1635, mentioned, among others, his brother Nicholas Wawne, executor; Jane and Elizabeth Wawne, daughters of his half-brother Richard Wawne; the (unnamed except for a son Richard) children of William Sharples by his half-sister; the children of Richard Swinlhurst by another half sister; Jennett and Issabell Wawne, daughters of his brother Nicholas Wawne, and Richard his son; Jennett, wife of Richard Wawne; and Jane, wife of Nicholas Wawne. [Will in York registry, vol. 42, p. 663; FHL film #99518]." 
Wawen, Richard (I10936)
 
554 According to Baldwin,

"Nicholas Waln (also spelled Wawen/Woane/Wallne) alias Procter, of Hey Heade, or Slainmerow, in the forest of Bolland, parish of Slaidburn, Yorkshire, d. July/Oct 1648, md. Jane _____, who d. 6 8mo. (Oct) 1669, Settle MM, Yorkshire. He does not appear to have actively used the alias of Procter, as that part of his name is known only from his father's will.

His will (as Nicholas Woane), written 29 July 1648, proved 26 Oct 1648 [Original Will, Exchequer Court of the Archbishop of York, FHL film #99556], mentioned his wife Jane, his son Richard, daughters Issabell and Jenet, and son-in-law William Torner [wife not named, but possibly the above Jenet].

Children of Nicholas Waln (presumably by his wife Jane):

+1. Richard Waln, d. 7 2mo. [Apr] 1659, md. Jane Rudd.
2. Isabell Waln, bap. 23 Nov 1634, Slaidburn, md. 6 1 Imo. [Jan] 1666/7, Settle MM, Jonathan Scott.
3. Jennett Waln, living 1648 (same as #4?).
4. dau. (same as Jenet??) md. William Torner." 
Waln, Nicholas (I10935)
 
555 According to Barnes, "he was in Baltimore Co. by 1692 as a taxable in Spesutia Hundred; had s. Thomas Jr., who first appeared as a taxable in 1695 in Spesutia Hund." Gilbert, Thomas Sr. (I11138)
 
556 According to Barnes, "she was a sister of William Marriott who d.s.p. in Towcester, Northamptonshire, and half-sister of George Marriott." Marriott, Dorothy (I12111)
 
557 According to Barnes, he "matric. 25 May. 1658 at Christ's Coll. Camb., age 16; was ordained a deacon and then priest in 1662; was Head Master of Leeds School from 1662 to 1690; m. Dorothy Hargrave on 1 Mar. 1668." Gilbert, Michael Jr. (I11152)
 
558 According to Barnes, he "matric. at Christ's Coll., Cambridge Univ. in 121; took his BA in 1624; was Vicar of Aldborough from 1629 to 1677, having temporarily been deposed during the Commonwealth, 1653-1659." Gilbert, Michael Sr. (I11156)
 
559 According to barnes, he was a "descendant of Robert II of Scotland, and thus a descendant of Charlemagne" Magruder, Alexander (I16541)
 
560 According to Barnes, he was a descendant of Louis VI of France. Lee, Philip (I8470)
 
561 According to Barnes, he was born at Aldborough, and Matric. Christ's Coll. Camb. Gilbert, Joshua (I11976)
 
562 According to Bernard, he was “a guild merchant of Presont, 1602, who resided in Chipping parish. He was twi married, his first wife being burin 1 Oct. 1603; his second wife was bur. 23 Feb. 1623, but in neither case are the Christian names recorded.” His son James was from his first wife. Dilworth, James (I10944)
 
563 According to Bernard, “Daniel Cheston went from Bristol in 1720 and settled in Kent County, Maryland; m. 1740 Augustine, dau. of James Frisby, and d. 1765, leaving a son.” Cheston, Dr. Daniel (I7967)
 
564 According to Bowen's history of the Childs, he had 9 children; she traces 3 lines via Cassandra, Henry, and Cephas. Childs, Henry Jr. (I10065)
 
565 According to Boyd, "Dr. Richard Waters, of Revolutionary Fame, was born about 1760, and served as a surgeon in the war for independence, and was noted for his skill as a surgeon as well as a practicing physician. After the close of the war, he purchased a large estate called "Spring Garden," on the road leading from Goshen to Gaithersburg, and the road from Mechanicsville to Clarksburg. Dr. Waters was born in Prince George's County, where he married Miss Margaret Smith, by whom he had several children. His son Richard was a prominent man in the County, and held the office of Sheriff, while his brother Somerset was a prominent Commission Merchant in Baltimore, and served a long time as a Tobacco Inspector."

See Finding Your Roots, season 7, episode 1, about the ancestry of the film-maker John Waters. 
Waters, Dr. Richard (I5306)
 
566 According to Boyd: "Hon Richard Waters, son of Dr. Richard Waters, of revolutionary fame, was born December 19th, 1794, on the old homestead "Spring Garden," and at an early age took on an active interest in politics in the County. In his canvass for the legislative assembly, he found a great many young men who could neither read nor write, and, on investigation, he discovered that the money appropriated by the State for paying the tuition of those parents who were unable to pay for the schooling of their children, was often used by the board of trustees, as they were called, in paying for children whose parents were able to pay, but their political influence was such as enabled them to divert moneys intended for the instruction of the poor, to the payment of the education of their own children.
This led Dr. Waters to make a spirited canvass of the County, and he was elected to the Legislature by an overwhelming majority. One of his first efforts in the legislative assembly was for a change in the old system of school education, and he succeeded in having a bill passed for Public School Education in the State of Maryland, that resulted in the abolishment of the old system and inaugurated a new era in the education of the people. It was the initial movement, which has, by improvement, resulted in the present School System.
He was re-elected for a second term, and filled the position with honor, both to himself and his constituents. He is still living [in 1879], and is about eighty-five years old. He has four sons and one daughter living.
His son Lemuel is an eminent Divine in the Missouri Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. William is the agent of the Adams Express Company, in Cincinnati, Ohio. Somerset is a Physician of a large practice in Carroll County, and has served in the legislature several terms from that County. George still resides in the County, near the old ancestral acres, and has occupied several public offices of trust in the County. Rebecca, the daughter, married Jesse T. Higgins, of this county, formerly a prominent merchant of Poolesville, and now a merchant of Baltimore" (102-03). 
Waters, Hon. Richard Rawlings (I5335)
 
567 According to Bradley, "He lived at Wiscasset and sailed a schooner between that port and Boston. In 1772, his vessel was wrecked at Seguin island, off the mouth of Kennebec river, and he and his son Josiah both perished. His widow was subsequently twice married." Bradbury, Josiah (I14348)
 
568 According to Brinton's history, "He remained on his father's farm until after the Revolution. He was a loyal patriot and wore a blue coat and cocked hat in spite of the shock to his Quaker relatives. Caspar Wistar, whose name marks a bridge over the Brandywine nearby, purchased his farm in 1782. Through his patriotism he insisted upon Continental notes in payment, and these soon became worthless."

According to the Darlington history, his wife was "b. in Birmhingham [Chester Co.]; was m. 12m. 28, 1763 at Birmingham Meeting, to John Brinton, of Kennet (now Pocopson township, son of John and Hannah (Vernon) Brinton, of that place. John Brinton, the elder, was a brother to Edward Brinton, whose daughter was the wife of Thomas Darlington. . . . Rebecca lived but a few years after marriage, and in 1770 John married a second wife, Phoebe Osborne, daughter of Samuel and Francis Osborne. For this marraige, ‘by a priest,' he was disowned 3m 6, 1771. About 1776 he married a third wife, Mary Rogers, widow of Robert Rogers. John Rogers, a son of the last wife, says of his step-father that he had two children by the first wife and three by the second.
"John Brinton's residence was on the hill above Lenape Station. At the time of the Battle of Brandywine some of the British soldiers passed by, and finding the owner of the property a strong sympathizer with the American cause, arrested him and with threats compelled him to Hurrah for King George, to which he defianty added ‘Washington!' Finding him incorrigible they took him a prisoner to Philadelphia, where he suffered much abuse and hardship. His step-son says that he went as a volunteer in the American Army, and when he returned home, by his intemperance and mismanagement, he spent the whole of his property and became poor, and worked at his trade, which was that of a tailor.
"He was probably obliged to mortgage the property in order to pay legacies to his brothers and sisters, and the indebtedness increased until finally Sheriff John Gardner conveyed the homestead, August 1, 1782, to John Franklin, of Philadelphia. In 1785 it passed into the possession of Caspar Wistar, whence came the name fo Wistar's Ford, on the Brandywine. In 1837 the property was conveyed by Sarah Pennock, daughter of Caspar Wistar, to John Entriken, who resided there many year [sic].
"John Brinton died in West Bradford, at the residence of his son-in-law George Entriken, December 4, 1825, in his 87th year." 
Brinton, John Jr. (I11348)
 
569 According to Butler, "at least two of Peter Covenhoven's uncles--Dominicus and Cornelius--seved with Ezekiel Dye in the Revolutionary War."

Further, "[Phoebe or Phebe] was born on October 18, 1743 in Middlesex County, New Jersey and she died after August 20, 1831. Pheby married Peter Covenhoven - his brothers served with Ezekiel Dye (Dey) in Captain Nixon's Troop of Light Horse in the Revolutionary War. Her son, John Covenhoven, married Lydia Duncan, the daughter of Anne Dye, the daughter of William Dey, Joseph's brother." 
Covenhoven, Peter (I9472)
 
570 According to Butler, he was famous for having captured the spy Captain Andre during the Revolutionary War. If this is so, he was an awfully old man--since the war was about 80-90 years after his marriage! This seems like an incorrect story.

According to a helpful e-mail, he was actually the father or grandfather of John Paul[d]ing, who captured Major Andre. 
Pauling, Joost (I9421)
 
571 According to Byron Lee, "She was hired by Eleanor Roosevelt in 1914 to be a social secretary. In July 1917 she joined the Navy as a female yeoman third class, attached the Navy Department, where there were daily opportunities to see Franklin Roosevelt, the Asst. Secretary of the Navy; however, she continued as social secretary. Lucy Mercer and Franklin Roosevelt had an affair that threatened his marriage between the years of 1914 and 1919. Eleanor found out about it in Sept. 1918 and the affair ended sometime after that. Lucy married a widower with five children, Winthrop Rutherford, on Feb. 10, 1920. Winthrop Rutherford was a descendant of the first Governors of New York and Massachusetts. . . . They had one child named Barbara. . . . Lucy and Franklin [Roosevelt] remained friends and she was with him when he died on April, 12, 1945." Mercer, Lucy Page (I12410)
 
572 According to Caughron, "David was the son of Christopher (Christian) Housemen who, with his family emigrated from Holland to America in the early part of the 17th century. He died in route, and his family completed the voyage and settled in Berkeley Co., W. Virginia near the Maryland line" (46). Hauseman, David (I12017)
 
573 According to Caughron, "David was the son of Christopher (Christian) Housemen who, with his family emigrated from Holland to America in the early part of the 17th century. He died in route, and his family completed the voyage and settled in Berkeley Co., W. Virginia near the Maryland line" (46). Hauseman, Christian (I12018)
 
574 according to censuses Helmstetter, Eugenia W. (I14530)
 
575 According to Chase, "The name of Decker appears on Jeremy Squam [Island} in 1771, when William and Molly Decker of that island were published in Boothbay records. The following year on Joseph Decker of Freetown (Edgecomb), a descendant of the Delano family [?], whose trading post was on the northern end of Jeremy Squam, married Sarah Davis. This was the Decker family whose vessels were employed by Col. James Swan in his salt and spar trade with Frrance." Decker, William Abraham (I6155)
 
576 According to Clark, "He was a justice of the peace for Kent County in 1661, 1674-77, and 1680. The Major had one son, Thomas, by his first wife and four children by his second marriage with Mary Vaughan, daughter of Capt. Richard Vaughan, commisioner of Port Kent form 1647 until 1652. Major Ringgold's will [was] made May 18, 1686, and proved September 28, 1686" (87). Ringgold, Mayor James (I7938)
 
577 According to Clark, "This Joshua left no will, but he and his wife were alive on a deed of 1811 when they deeded 'Woodstock Enlarged' to Dr. Charles Duvall. In 1812 he agreed to Dr. Charles Duvall being guardian to his children for hte benefit of his property to be inherited form Richard Jones Waters, brother to my wife. . . .: 'Charles Duvall, Jr. of Prince George's County appears in court and makes application to be appointed guarding to William W. Marriott, Richard Marriott, George W. Marriott, Thomas Marriott, Alice Marriott, and Julian Marriott . . . Mar. 31, 1812.' . . . 'I Joshua Marriott renounce all rights and pretentions to guardianship of my children (same names as foregoing) to Dr. Duvall being the person chosen by them and that their choice had my approbation. /s/ Joshua Marriott.'" Marriott, Joshua (I5362)
 
578 According to Clark, David Gregg was "born in Scotland . . . a Captain in Cromwell's army. He, his wife, and a son were assassinated by Catholics near Coleraine, Ireland" (95).

FYI: There are many genealogies for this Gregg family, and other related Gregg families, on the internet and in print. This is not a branch of the tree on which I have done original documentary research; I have, instead, attempted to choose among what seem to be (by their citation of source information themselves) the most authoritative studies possible. I have also noted conflicting data in the notes, where authoritative sources seem to differ. Caveat litterator. 
Gregg, Capt. David (I6058)

586 According to Cope and Fulthey,

"Joseph Cope, [John's] younger brother, inherited the homestead, and upon a part of which he continued to reside until his death, 4, 4, 1870, in the seventy-sixth year of his age. He visited England in 1820, partly on account of his health, and in 1839 returned thither to procure improved stock of cattle and sheep, of which he was a most enthusiastic breeder for many years. He was a great admirer of the standard English writers and poets, and seldom penned a letter without a familiar quotation from one of them.
He married, 11, 27, 1823, Rachel, daughter of Samuel and Sarah Cope, of Fayette Co., Pa., by whom he had children as follows: 1. Ann, m. to Darlington Cope, of Franklin township. 2. John, m. first to Caroline Baldwin, who left one child, and second to Hannah M. Cooper, of Parkesburg. He was assistant superintendent of the West Chester and Philadelphia and Philadelphia and Baltimore Central Railroads at the time of his death, 3, 4, 1867, and was instantly killed by the cars. His widow and daughter Lucy conduct a boarding- and day-school at Toughkenamon. 3. Paschall, m. to Amy A. Baily, of West Chester; d. 8, 25, 1873, leaving one child, Lydia, now the wife of Prof. Isaac Sharpless, of Haverford College. 4. William Cowper, m. to Margaret M.

Cope, Joseph (I10841)
 
587 According to Cope and Fulthey,

"Robert and Ruth Miller settled in East Caln, and had children,— Margaret, Solomon, Dorothy, Patience, Hannah, Hannah (2), Warwick, Isaac, Jacob, Rebecca, Rachel, Joseph, Rachel (2), Sarah, Ruth, Benjamin, and James.
James Miller, son of James and Rachel (Fred) Miller, born 10, 30, 1728, married, 8, 16, 1751, Sarah Way, and 5, 25, 1758, Phebe Jones, and settled in Sadsbury." 
Miller, Robert (I4448)
 
588 According to Cope, "James was a farmer in the county of Cavan, whence he came to Pennsylvania, in 1712, and settled in New Garden township. In 1714 he was chosen Clerk of Newark Monthly Meeting, and overseer of New Garden Meeting. Upon the establishment of the latter as a monthly meeting he served as clerk from 1718 to 1726; was appointed an elder in 1727, and in 1731 removed with his family to Charlestown township, at the present site of Phoenixville. His children were Mary, Joseph, John, James, Rachel, Moses, Samuel, and Susanna."

According to Myers, he was received from Catterlaugh [Carlow] Meeting, Ireland, 4 mo. 7, 1712, and he was a farmer from County Cavan. 
Starr, James (I4490)
 
589 According to Cope, "Richard Truman with Martha his wife, and some children, came from England about 1715 and settled in what is now Montgomery Co., PA. By deed of Nov. 17, 1716, Stephen Jenkins, of Springhead, in the township of Abington, yeoman, nad Abigail his wife . . . conveyed to Richard Truman of Cheltenham townshop, weaver for #105, all that said messuage or tenement and plantation knows by the name of Springhead, together with one hundred and forty acres of land thereunto belonging, in toe township of Abington. This was close to Abington meeting. March 9, 1716-7, Richard Truman, of Abington, weaver, and his wife Martha, mortgaged this property . . . Inn the 5th mo. 1722, Richard Truman took a certificate from Abington to Gwyneed Mo. Mtg. for himself, wife, and mother-in-law (who is not named), and probably settled at this time in what is now Berks County, where he purchards 212 acres of land on ‘Menokejee Creek,' in the township of Olney. Here he made his will, 11, 20, 1729-30, which was proven March 14, 1729-30. Soon after his death his widow, Martha Truman, moved to Philadelphia with some or all of her children, and there died about the 22nd of 6th mo., 1758, at the age of nearly 85 years. and was buried in Friends' ground" (203). Truman, Richard (I2497)
 
590 According to Culver, "William Cromwell arrived in Maryland in 1667, according to his own statement. He appears first in Calvert County, but soon removed to Anne Arundel County, taking up land the south side of the Patapsco, River, on the west side of Curtis Creekn. He possessed lands also in old Baltimore County, where he resided, being known as William Cromwell 'of Baltimore County.' According to the records, on 8 Co. 1679, 'came William Cromwell of Baltimore County, and proved his right to 50 acres of land for transporting himself to the Province twelve years hence.' A land warrant was issued to him the same day" (387-88).

A friend (William Ball) d. in 1685, and in the will dated 10 Apr. 1684 bequeathed property to Elizabeth Cromwell, widow of William (390).

Culver notes that he had brothers named John, who was living in Calvert Co. in 1670, and Richard, named in William's will in 1684; and a sister Edith, who married (1) Christopher Gist, (2) Joseph Williams, and (3) John Beecher.

Culver's theory, only a theory, is that the Cromwells were related to a family in Wiltshire. 
Cromwell, William (I12101)
 
591 According to Cutter he was "a surveyor of Duxbury in 1674, and a constable in 1687." Barker, Isaac (I12697)
 
592 According to Cutter, "Walter Briggs, the the immigrant ancestor, was in Scituate as early as 1643, when his name appears on the list of those able to bear arms. In 1651, he bought a farm of Mr. Hatherly on the north side of Farm Necknad the cover there still bears the name of Brigg's Harbor. . . . His will wad dated in 1684."

According to Deane, he "appears in Scituate 1651, when he purchased a farm of Mr. Hatherly, on the north side of Farm Neck. The cove within the glades still bears the name of Briggs Harbour. He was long a useful man on the plantation." His will is dated 1684.

Windsor doubts that he lived in Duxbury; more likely, he says, Walter lived in Scituate.

See: L. Vernon Briggs, History and Genealogy of the Briggs Family, 1254-1937. 
Briggs, Walter (I10376)
 
593 According to David Dye, "Henry arrived at Sulphur Rock (Independence Co, AR) in 1837 and purchased several hundred acres three miles west of town. At the beginning of the Civil War he owned 1339 acres of land and one slave. He was post master of Sulphur Rock from Jan. 2 to Nov. 5, 1839 and represented Independence Co. in the House of Representatives for the 7th General Assembly (Nov. 4, 1848-Jan. 10, 1849)." This refers to the State House, not the U.S. Congress. Dye, Henry Clay (I9354)
 
594 According to Deane and the Hingham history, he was in Hingham, Massachusetts by 1637.

According to the Hingham history, "Thomas, had a grant of land in Hingham at 'Goose Point,' 1637. On Apr. 13, 1646, he sold his est. here, consisting of five acres of land with a dw. house thereon, which was located where St. Paul's Catholic Church now stands, to John Otis, Sr., together with two acres in the Broad Cove meadows, and twelve acres beyond Crooked Meadow Bridge, which has previously been granted and laid out to him by the town. In 1659 he complete a contract for finishing a 'barke' at Boston, and prob. removed from here about that time, or shortly after. In 1644 a Thomas Turner was one of four young men who were permitted to build a gallery in the first meeting-house, but whether it was this Thomas or his s[on] is a problem for investigation. Deane's history [of Scituate] says the name aft[erward]s appears in Scit[uate]." 
Turner, Thomas Sr. (I2699)
 
595 According to Deane, "John Booth was in Scituate as early as 1656. He purchased lands in the Conihassett proprietary, and settled near the hill which now bears his name. His house was where that of Rowland Bailey now stands [in 1850]. He had several sons . . . and four daughters."

Lines on this tree descend via two of his children, John Jr. and Mary. 
Booth, John Sr. (I10460)
 
596 According to Deane, "William Barstow was a brother of Michael Barstow, a representative of Watertown 1653. He settled for a time at Dedham, where Joseph his son was born, and probably John also. He was a freeman in Scituate in 1649. He house was about one hundred rods north-west of Hanover corners, on the east side of the Plymouth road. He built 'Barstow's Bridge', 1656." Barstow, William (I10478)
 
597 According to Deane, Cornet John Buck's "wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Samuel of Weymouth." Holbrook, Elizabeth (I10427)
 
598 According to Deane, Cornet John Buck's "wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Samuel of Weymouth." Holbrook, Samuel (I12708)
 
599 According to Deane, he "appears in Scituate 1680. He owned a considerable tract of land at Henchman's corner, half mile west of the south Meetinghouse, adjoining Dea. Joseph Cushing's and Philip Turner's land. His house stood twenty rods east from the parting of the roads, on the north side of the street. He sold it to Rev. Mr. Eells 1714. It was a spacious house. Thirty years since it was taken down, and a slight habitation built with its ruins: and the whole removed 1826. . . . He had also a sister Elnathan, who married Eliab [sic] Turner 1694. This family came from Massachusetts and returned thither; probably to Chelmsford. We take him to have been the son of Thomas Hinchman, Esq. of Chelmsford. There was, however, a Mr. Hinckesman in Marshfield, 1653, who may have been his father."

Savage does not make a determination as to his parents either. The "Hinckesman" in Marshfield was Edmund; Savage gives him the date of first record of 1653. 
Henchman, Joseph (I10465)
 
600 According to Deane, he "came, we believe, with Mr. Hatherly from London 1632, and took up a farm on the north side of Scituate Harbour, very early. In 1646 he was one of the Conihassett partners. . . . The house which was erected by John Williams as early as 1634, has been built upon since, and if tradition be true, there is one part of the original building preserved. . . . It was the oldest house in Scituate, if this be the original house."

Lines on this tree descend through his daughters Ann and Mary. 
Williams, John (I10449)
 
601 According to Deane, he "married Rachel Buck, daughter of Cornet John Buck, 1693, and left fifteen children, principally in Hanover." Dwelley, John (I10384)
 
602 According to Deane, he "was early in this town [Scituate], having married Lydia, daughter of Humphrey Turner, 1649. . . . He was a soldier in Philip's war, and 1678, was paid by the Town for nine week's campaign in 1676. This family may have removed to Connecticut." Doughty, James (I10374)
 
603 According to Deane, he "was in Scituate 1650. He married Mary, the daughter of John Williams Sr. in 1651. His land was on the east of John Cowen's, and his house [stood] near where the house of the late Roland Litchfield stands. He had Conihassett lands in the right of John Williams, and was much employed as a surveyor, by the partners." Dodson, Anthony (I10453)
 
604 According to Deane, he "was in Scituate 1664, or earlier, probably the same that was in Lancaster 1654 and Hingham a few years afterward. His farm was on the road leading from the third Herring brok to the harbour, about one mile north of said brook, and his house stood where stands [in 1850] the house of Capt. Seth Foster, late deceased. In 1676, he was a solder in Philip's war, and receive a grant of land for his services, between Cornet's mill and the Plymough road. He had meadow land at Till's creek, which subsequently is knowna s Dwelley's creek. He died 1692. There is no record of his family here."

According to Fenn, "He came from Somerset, Eng. to Lancaster, MA before 1654, maybe ca. 1645, and one source says as early as 1631. He was the first of this name in the country so far as can be shown . . . He was one of the Incorporators of thelown of Lancaster, MA Feb. 18, 1854; moved to HIngham, MA ca. 1660; and in 1665, moved to Scituate, MA to a farm about a mile nort of Third Herring Brook. In 1666, he was named in a list of constables for Duxbury, MA. He was a farmer. He served in King Philip's War of 1675-76, for which he received a grant of land in 1676" (183).

His first wife, by whom he had his children, is unknown.

Fenn says that she uses two sources--but the second contains virtually no information, so the first must be her major source:
1. Five Generations of American Dwelles, by Ben and Alice (Dwelle) Dixon; and
2. Vital Records of Scituate, Massachusetts to the Year 1850., 3 vols 
Dwelley, Richard (I10426)
 
605 According to Deane, he "was in Weymouth 1633. We find that he gained an unfortunate notoriety, by espousing certain religious sentiments, to liberal for the age in which he lived. Mr. Robert Lentha, minister at Weymouth, advanced the sentiment, 'That all baptized persons should be admitted to the Communion without further trial.' This was a heresy to be noticed by the government, and he was orderd to retract in presence of the General Court; with which order he complied. Richard Sylvester, who held the same communion, adhered to it, and in consquence was fined and disinfranchised by the government. This put him upon removing from the Colony, and he came to Scituate 1642. Thomas Rawlins, Thomas Clap, James Torrey, and William Holbrook, came about the same time, and probably on account of holding the same sentiments. Sylvester settled in Marshfield, or rather in that part of Scituate called 'the Two Miles.' He married the sister of Capt. William Torrey."

His wife's name is given in Savage, but this has been questioned; see Frederic C. Torrey, The Torrey Families and Their Children in American, 1.342-44; he gives Naomi Torrey's husband as John Lowell (see 1.35) and argues that Savage is mistaken. 
Sylvester, Richard (I10476)
 
606 According to Deane, he "was the son of John Barker of Duxbury, and Anna, the daughter of John Williams Sr. of Scituate (married 1632). John Barker Sr. was at Jones's river (now Kingston) 1638. He was drowned, 1652. [He had purchased the ferry (now [1850] Little's Bridge] of John Brewster, son of Elder Brewster, 1641, and was there drowned].
John Barker, Jr. was a serjeant in King Philip's war, and freed from bearing arms at hte close of that war, 'on account of wounds received.' He was afterward a Justice of the Peace, and is mentioned as a lawyer in the Colony records in 1674. His brother-in-law, Capt. John Williams, having no children, gave his farm in Scituate, 1694, to Williams Barker, his grand-nephew, son of John, Esq. This is the well known Barker farm north of the Harbour. . . .
John Barker, Esq. lost his first wife Desire, 1705, and married Hannah Cushing, (the widow of the Rev. Jeremiah), 1706." 
Barker, John Jr. (I10464)
 
607 According to Deane, he was in Scituate in 1680.

Note that there are two apparently unrelated Thomas Turners: this one, and the Thomas Turner who is a son of Humphrey Turner, tanner, and the husband of Sarah Hyland. I am not sure how, or even whether, the two families are related. Humphrey Turner's family also lived in Scituate, but had no members named Caleb. 
Turner, Thomas Jr. (I10387)

617 According to Doliante, "Basil served both as a Sgt. and as an Ensign, in the Pr. George's Co., Militia, in Capt. Jacob Duckett's (his uncle's) company., during the French War of 1799" (138). Duckett, Basil (I8580)
 
618 According to Doliante, Baruch Duckett owned "Fairview" in Prince George's Co., Maryland, where he lived and died. Duckett, Baruch (I6636)
 
619 According to Eaton he "drowned when sailing out of the mouth of George's river." McLellan, William (I14335)
 
620 According to Eaton's History of Thomaston, "[1850] was an unfortunate year for the public State institutions, as, besides the fire in the State Prison, the Insane Hospital in Augusta, was burnt Dec. 4th; and, in it, one of the citizens of this town, Ephraim McLellan, who was afflicted with insanity, lost his life by suffocation."

His birth date might be a year or so early; he is listed on his gravestone as dying at 57. 
McLellan, Ephraim (I3219)
 
621 According to Eaton, for the year 1843, "Travelling was so impeded about Feb. 11th, that the New York mails were eight days in reaching here. Among other disasters, the Brig "Raymond" went ashore Absecom Beach, N[ew] J[ersey], on the morning of that day, when the captain, Orris Levensaler, the first mate, George W. McLellan, both of this town, and four of the crew were drowned; whilst only two, John Howard of Warren, second mate, and Wm. Comery, escaped. It afterwards appeared that all might have been saved had they remained on board, instead of taking to the long boat." McLellan, George W. (I1309)
 
622 According to Eaton, for the year 1843, "Travelling was so impeded about Feb. 11th, that the New York mails were eight days in reaching here. Among other disasters, the Brig "Raymond" went ashore Absecom Beach, N[ew] J[ersey], on the morning of that day, when the captain, Orris Levensaler, the first mate, George W. McLellan, both of this town, and four of the crew were drowned; whilst only two, John Howard of Warren, second mate, and Wm. Comery, escaped. It afterwards appeared that all might have been saved had they remained on board, instead of taking to the long boat." Levensaler, Capt. Orris (I3555)
 
623 According to Eaton, he "came from North of Ireland about 1749 and settled on Mr. North's lot, No. 48." He had 8 children by his first wife, and none with Mary Webster, his second. Porterfield, Capt. Patrick (I3423)
 
624 According to Eaton, he resided in Boston, a mariner. Levensaler, William B. (I12717)
 
625 According to Eaton, he resided in Thomaston, and was a painter. Levensaler, Edward R. (I12719)
 
626 According to EdwardsGenerations and the Edwards history, he was a farmer from Gorham: He and Martha had 10 children between 1793 and 1816. Also according to the Edwards history, "Samuel Edwards lived on South St. in Gorham in a house which had the first plastered room in that town" (66). Edwards, Samuel (I1558)
 
627 According to EdwardsGenerations,

"Albert M. Edwards graduated from Gould Academy, Bethel, Me., 1856. In 1857 he entered the University of Michigan, where he took the Latin Scientific Course. Because of financial reverses he was obliged to leave college at the end of three years. In 1859 he became Associate Editor-in-Chief of the "Young Men's Journal and Temperance Advocate." At the breaking out of the Civil War he enlisted for three months' service in Co. K, 1st Mich. Regt. Inf. At the battle of Bull Run, June 21, 1861, he was taken prisoner and held for ten months in Confederate prisons. After his release he returned to Michigan, raised a Company, and entered service again as Capt. of Co. F, 24th. Mich. Regt. Inf. At the battle of Gettysburg he was one of three officers in his regiment who escaped uninjured. He took command of the regiment in the field. He was promoted to rank of Major, Nov. 1863; to that of Lieut. Col., June, 1864; and because of meritorious service to that of Brevet Col., Mar., 1865. At the funeral of President Lincoln he was in charge of the military escort. He was mustered out with his regiment and honorably discharged, June 30, 1865. Returning to private life, he accepted a position in the Detroit Customs House, where he remained until 1885. In 1889 he resumed this position, and held same until 1893, when he retired on account of impaired health. Member of Palestine Lodge, AF&AM of Mich.; Detroit Post, No 384, GAR of Mich." 
Edwards, Albert Marshall (I1651)
 
628 According to Effie Bowie, he was a London merchant who immigrated to Prince George's Co., and came to Maryland before 1669.

Skordas gives two Richard Lancasters as early immigrants: one was transported in 1669, the other in 1673. A Richard Lancaster entered into a bond with John Boyd in 1698 in Prince George's Co.

According to Digges and Poutney Davis, he appeared as a “merchant” in London in 1707, and was in PG County by 1712 when he witnessed a will. He was said to have married twice in England, and had his children by his second wife. 
Lancaster, Richard (I5500)
 
629 According to Effie G. Bowie, "Isaac Lansdale I, born in Leicestershire, England, about 1686; settled at Queen Anne, Prince George's Co., MD where he owned a plantation, "Rich Thicket"; merchant; imported goods from Philip South of London; Warden of Queen Ann parish; vestryman; d. before August, 1733, in which year Thomas Lancaster, his wife's brother, administered his estate. He married Margaret, daughter of Richard Lancaster, merchant of London and Prince George's County."

According to Barnes, he "arrived in Maryland by 1719" and was "in PG Co. by 3 March 1725 when he was listed as a creditor of Susannah Mitchell. He d. by 10 July 1734 when Thomas Lancaster was mentioned as his admin." 
Lansdale, Isaac I (I3912)
 
630 According to family history, "Apparently Nora used to sing opera on the radio. She and Philip lived in Gananoque, Ontario. There was a big scandal when she left Philip to run away with another man. The couple went to Toronto, where they lived in the centre of the city. Then, according to newspaper reports, Nora fell or was pushed down a flight of stairs. It was the middle of winter, but she managed to walk, barefoot and in her nightgown, to the Wellesley Hospital. There, she died of her injuries. The event was investigated as a possible murder, but apparently was never solved." Kenville, Nora Marguerite (I14934)
 
631 According to Frazee, he "m. twice, lived in Mississippi, daughter Lulu, d. ; m. Miss Taylor, teacher of Augusta, Kentucky, had a large family" (561). Hamilton, Patrick Henry (I4233)
 
632 According to Frazee, he never married.

I assume that the Lemeul Hamilton I find on the census, however, is him? In the 1850 census he is living with Matilda Hamilton, aged 30, and William F. Hamilton, aged 5. I assume that this is him. In 1860 the same family appears (in Mason, not Bracken Co.), with two more children, Laura and Samuel. Who are they, if not his wife and children, or is this not this Lemuel? His sister Matilda Hamilton (Gregg) was living in Indiana after 1850. 
Hamilton, Lemuel (I4235)
 
633 According to Frazee, he was "first mayor of Augusta, Kentucky; married twice; son by first wife, Courtney; son of second wife, Darwin, of St. Louis, Missouri, now in Florida" (561).

In the 1850 census he is the Mayor, living with two children (Courtney and Louisa); only his brother Oscar is living with him--no wife.

659 According to Harlan, "John and Mary Starr were life long residents of Old Castle, in the County of Meath, Ireland. He was a yeoman, and a member with Friends. Traditions say that the father of John Starr was a Captain of infantry in the Parliament Army during the Civil War in England. That after which he settled in Ireland, and the son resided for a time at Coatehill, in the County of Cavan." (57).

A partial biography from Cope:

"STARR, JOHN, whose father is said to have served in the Parliamentary army as a captain of infantry, and afterwards removed to Ireland, resided at Oldcastle, in the county of Meath. By Mary, his wife, he had children,— John, b. 7th mo., 1674; James, b. 10, 28, 1676; George, b. 2, 16, 1679; Mary, b. 7, 15, 1682; Elizabeth, b. 9, 12, 1684; Susannah, b. 9, 23, 1686; Jeremiah, b. 8, 17, 1690; Moses, b. 8, 27, 1692; Isaac, b. 9, 23, 1697.

Jeremiah married, 11, 10, 1716, Rebecca Jackson, b. 3, 25, 1697, daughter of Isaac and Ann, and towards the close of the year 1717 came to Chester County and settled in Londongrove, a little northwest of Avondale."

Other family researchers show that this John's father was named Carran Starr, b. abt. 1620, though I don't know what evidence there is for this. 
Starr, John (I4487)
 
660 According to Harlan, he "came to American in 1717, unmarried. He . 12, 20, 1723 at New Garden Meeting Margaret Lightfoot. In 1724 they settled in New Garden Township upon 200 acres of land he had purchased from Thomas Garnett, and resided thereon for five years, when he sold the same to Nathaniel Houlton" (57). Harlan lists 9 children.

Starr, Isaac (I4496)
 
661 According to Harlan, Moses was born "in the County of Meath, Ireland. He married there, in Friends Meeting, at Old Castle, 6, 12, 1715, Deborah King. They came to America in 1717, and settled in Kennet" (57).

According to Cope, "Moses Starr married, 6, 2, 1715, at Oldcastle Meeting, Deborah King, daughter of Merrick King, of that place. They came over with Jeremiah and his wife, and after a time removed to Maiden Creek, Berks Co., of which county he was the first, and for a time the only, representative in Assembly"

689 According to his death certificate, he was a cooper by profession. He had lived in Jefferson Parish, according to the receipts kept by the family. His ancestry is a mystery.

He and Catherine Klipfel divorced. Suit 5090, Parish Court, Mary B. Fields & Charles Fields, filed Dec. 1st, 1828. This is a citation for a separation, recorded on 1 Dec. 1828 and served on 3 Feb. 1829.

"The petition of Mary Barbara Fields residing in said city respectfully shows, that she is the wife of Charles Fields, also of said city and by him her two children, that the said Fields constantly refuses to make any provision for her or their said children and that when he is in a state of drunkenness he abuses your petitioner in the most vulgar and brutal manner and he frequently can [?miterd] personal violence on her, that in her last state of pregnancy he hit your petitioner in such manner as to put her life at hazard in consquence of which conduct in the past of her said husband it is impossible for her to live in safety or tranquility with him, wherfore she prays the said Fields may be cited to answer this petition & that a separation from bed, board and property be [?deemed] between him & your petitioner and that he be [?deemed] to pay your petitioner the sum of thirty dollars per month & the cost of this suit & she [?for] this prays your honor to a_____ ^[_______ ____]^ him to carry on the suit.

I hereby certify that I am willing for the court to give Mary B. Fields a separation but am unwilling to allow the thirty dollars per month as specified in the ____. [signed] Chas. F. Fields. [witnessed Dec. 1st, 1828]

The document was sent to "Mr. Chs. Fields" at the "corner of Girod & Tchoupitoulas Street at a tavern kept by Mr. Frederick," which is apparently where Fields resided.

"Mrs. Barbara Klipfel, widow by first marriage of Charles Fields, and by second marriage of John McMillen, residing in this City, who by these presents declares that her first husband, Charles Fields, a native of the State of New York, a cooper by profession, aged thirty-five years, died in this city of New Orleans in the year eighteen hundred and thirty four."

He did quite well running a grocery. (The New Orleans States’ article mentions age 18, but he appears on the 1870 census in New Orleans).

The articles say he is survived by Mrs. Flora Michel; Misses Grace, Lolia, Edna; and Charles and Roy. 
Feahney, Charles Sr. (I741)
 
703 According to his obituary, and that of Blanche Marie Elizabeth Pitard, he married his wife’s niece Blanche Coffee after his wife Agatha's tragic death.

One possibility for his parents are Brisbinall Turnbull & Louisa, who in 1880 have a 9 year old son named Paul. They also have a daughter named Leonora, 7, and a Leonora Turnbull married a "J.T. Sullivan," who appears in his obit in 1948.

But: "Mrs. J. T Sullivan, nee Leonora Turnbull," died in 1903 (obit, Times-Picayune, 16 June 1903): why would he list her as an apparently living relative in 1948?

The wedding notice, Times-Democrat, 9 Feb. 1896, p3:

718 According to Jellet’s biography of his father, Samuel followed as owner of his father's gardening business outside of Philadelphia. His brother Daniel started one in New Orleans.

His dwelling in 1850 is right next to his parents. Samuel was living with is wife, but the other folks in the household seem to all be working for the gardening business, and none of the names (Wickersham, Weiss, Smith, Gouin) are recognizable.

In 1860, he was living with his wife Indiana, but also "Annatre Maupay,” aged 19, and his youngest sisters Emma, Mariam, and Regina. All ages are much younger than the 1850 dates. His house is next to his younger brother William's. It iss not clear that he had any children. 
Maupay, Samuel (I6217)
 
719 According to JL Sr's "Miscellaneous Notes" about his family, Richard later changed his named to Welsh, his mother's name. I've kept his birth name here. Iglehart, Richard (I11509)
 
720 According to JL Sr's notes, he moved out to Portland, Oregon, and left one daughter. Strain, Thomas Truxton (I5756)
 
721 According to Joe Spann, Steadman had himself changed his mind on Capt. John Spann's ancestry in later years. The link between The Elder and The Captain as described by Steadman apparently remains secure.

The following records come from the Alumni Dublinenses by Burtchaell and Sadleir (Dublin 1935):
—1704, April 19 - Samuel Span, entered Trinity College in Dublin at age 14.  
Span, Samuel, a Pensioner (ie. a fee-paying student), entered the college 19 April 1704, aged 14.  Also previously educated by a Mr Griffin in co Longford, Samuel was the son of Benjamin, a cleric, and was born in Chester, England.  He graduated a Bachelor of Arts in the spring of 1708 and received his Masters degreee in the summer of 1711. 
—1705, May 30 - John Span, a Pensioner, entered the college 30 May 1705, aged 16.  Prior to tht he was educated by a Mr Griffin in co Longford.  John was the son of Benjamin Span, a cleric, and was born in co Cavan. He does not appear to have proceeded to degree level.

722 According to John Gregg Fee's Autobiography,

"In 1848 I received a commission from the American Missionary Association - appropriation $200, as I now remember. Previous to this, for more than a year, my wife and I had lived on our own small resource. My wife was industrious; and I believe no man ever accused me of being idle. Aside from necessity, we had resolved that we would not only advocate free labor, but also, as far as we could, we would dignify labor by the work of our hands.
By this time we had a little frame house built by the community to be used as a school-house and church house. The Lord granted to us a manifestation of his presence. Twenty-one persons were converted, a prayer meeting and Sunday-school sustained.
   In this year, 1848, I began regular preaching in Bracken County, my native country and the native country of my wife. The place for preaching was in a school-house, distant from my home in Lewis twenty-five miles. To this appointment I came every second week. Here Wm. Goodell visited us and preached two or three sermons. I continued regular preaching. The first person who there came forward to confess Christ, was my mother-in-law, Elizabeth Hamilton. Next came John D.[eMoss] Gregg, her brother, a faithful man. One after another came. In process of time came Mary Gregg, mother of the first two who came. She had secured to a bondman a deed of emancipation before she joined the church. Thus the testimony of the church was kept clear from any appearance of connivance at any form of oppression" (56-57).

I'm not sure but that his sons Lycurgus (visible on the 1850 census) and Linnaeus (taken from Gregg's volume) aren't the same person. 
Gregg, John Demoss (I9845)
 
723 According to John Gregg Fee's Autobiography, the following incident happened at Vincent and Elizabeth Gregg's house in about December of 1859; reference to this appears in a biography of Fee as well.

"At this time I was on my way home from New York. Friends at Berea [College] importuned my wife to go and meet me, if possible, and tell me not to attempt to come home now, for men were waylaying me at three different places. Along with my daughter Laura I met my wife at Cincinnati, Ohio. The next day we met the exiles from Berea. It was deemed wise now to hold meetings in Cincinnati. From this place we went to an appointment, previously made for me, in Bethesda church-house, in Bracken County, Ky. Here, whilst in the stand preaching, some of my exiled children, not previously seen for months, came into the church-house. With these came other exiles. Among them was John G. Hanson and family.
    The Monday following this meeting was county court day in Bracken County. Already Bro. Jas. S. Davis had been driven from the church in Lewis County. J. M. Mallett, a teacher in the school at Bethesda, had been mobbed and driven out of Germantown, Bracken County. In sympathy with the slave power, public feeling was at white heat. It was estimated that 800 people gathered on that county court day at Brooksville, the county seat of Bracken County. A special meeting was called. Inflammatory speeches were made, referring to the John Brown raid in Virginia, the expulsion of Abolitionists from Berea, in Madison County, and from the "Abolition" church in Lewis County, and the expulsion of the "Abolitionr" [sic] teacher in Bracken County; and now it was claimed that the security of property and peace of society demanded that John G. Fee, John G. Hanson, and others associated with them, be not allowed to tarry, even for a short time, in Bracken County, their native county. Such a resolve against men unconvicted of any crime, present or past, and now in their native county, in the midst of relatives and life-long acquaintances, was as dastardly as it was vile. But the slave power was in its very nature one of oppression and outrage; and the great mass of the non-slave-owners had become servile; and, though not slave-owners, had consented to be slaveholders, and joined with or consented to the demand of the slave-owners. A committee of sixty-two men, of "high standing," was appointed to warn John G. Fee, John G. Hanson and others associated, to leave the county, "peaceably if they would, forcibly if they must." On the day appointed, the committee of sixty-two rode up to the yard fence in front of the dwelling-house of Vincent Hamilton, my father-in-law, where with my wife and children I was then stopping. These men then sent in a request that I come out. I did so, and listened to their resolutions. The committee then demanded from me a reply. I said, as my custom was on such occasions, "I make no pledges to surrender God-given and constitutional rights to any man or set of men. If I shall be convicted of crime, before an impartial jury, then I will submit to adequate punishment." I then proceeded with further defense of my claim to citizenship and free speech, when the captain of the band ordered, "Forward, march."
    One of these men I took by the arm. He had been a member of the State Legislature. In his house my wife, in girlhood days, had boarded whilst attending school. With his sons I had studied in the school-room and played on the playground. This man was then an elder in the Presbyterian "church" at Sharon church-house, where my wife and I, years previously, had made profession of faith in Christ, and from the hands of this man we had received the emblems of the broken body and shed blood of our Lord. I referred to these things, and said to him, ‘Is this the treatment that we, convicted of no crime, should expect from one who has known us from childhood, with whom we have lived as neighbors, and who is now an office-bearer in a professedly Christian church?' He replied, ‘It is not worth while for us to talk,' and rode off in pursuit of the committee-men. These committee-men served a like notice upon J. G. Hanson and others.
At first I thought I would not go from Bracken County, though it was not then my home. I had so expressed myself. Two members of the church there, John D. Gregg [Vincent Power Hamilton's brother-in-law, presumably] and John Humlong, men whose courage, fidelity and piety perhaps no man questioned, said, ‘Our first impulse was to take our rifles and stand with you; but other friends warned to leave have decided to go, and we find that we will be utterly overwhelmed by the opposing power, and if you stay we shall all be driven away.' My father-in-law made the same remark. This put a new phase on the issue. I might peril my own home, and had done so. I might no peril the home of another, especially when he had expressed his fear. A day of fasting and prayer was appointed, and a meeting of brethren and sisters in Christ was held at the church-house. The conclusion was, ‘There is now such a reign of terror all over the State that you cannot get a hearing anywhere in the State.' The same was the response from friends in Madison County. Thus persecuted, the admonition seemed pertinent, ‘When they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another.' I said, ‘It is possible I cannot reach my own home, and could not get the friends together, even if there; but 'tis a time not to be silent.' Therefore, John G. Hanson, myself and others, retired with our families for a time to the North and took up our abode in the suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio" (149-154). 
Hamilton, Vincent Power (I4227)
 
724 According to Jordan (S206), he had 9 children. Plummer, Yate Sr. (I9180)
 
725 According to Jourdan she had 10 children with her husband Thomas Williams. Prather, Eleanor (I10083)
 
726 According to Judy Henry, who has studied the Henry family, "Legend says that Samuel Henry b. 1762 was born in Hanover Co - not provable because of burned records there - but the family probably relocated from Augusta Co., VA area to Washington Co., NC (now Washington/Carter Co TN) by 1775. Samuel's brother James was married to an Augusta Co. girl. All their neighbors were from what is now Rockbridge Co. VA (then Augusta) and Samuel 1762 and his brother William went back to VA to marry about 1780. "

There are many, many Henrys buried in the Baker's Creek Cemetery. 
Henry, Samuel Jr. (I6023)
 
727 According to Kelley, "At one time Hill commanded the brigantine ‘Betty' out of South River. In the records he is listed as the son of Henry and Mary Hill. The bring was owned by Captain Richard Hill and Mordecai Moore of South River, William Holland, Richard Johns, Samuel Chew, Richard Harrison, Nehemiah Birkhead of Herring Bay, and William Coale of West River. All of them were Friends" (62). Hill, Henry (I10194)
 
728 According to Kelley, "William Southbee (Southabee), together with John Pitt of the Eastern Shore and others from the Western Shore, including Anne Ayres Chew, widow of Samuel Chew I of ‘Herrington,' and Margaret Burrage Smith, wife of Nathan Smith of the ‘Lords Bounty,' made up a part of Friends who traveled the Eastern Shore and Delaware ‘in the service of Truth' in 1681" (58). Ayres, Anne (I7798)
 
729 According to Kendall, "George Gregg was a tanner for forty-three years retiring 1855, served in the War of 1812, was a kind gentleman of a sincere religious attitude; about 1823 he established the first ‘Gregg camp-meeting' grounds on his premises which was active for many years. In 1850 census George is listed as a farmer worth $40,235 in Clermont Co., Ohio" (250). Gregg, George (I9835)
 
730 According to Kendall, he "died on his way home on horseback from West Chester to the old Gregg homestead where he lived." Gregg, George (I12193)
 
731 According to Kendall, he was killed "at the Battle of Augusta, Kentucky, where he had hauled a load of wheat on Set. 24, 1862." Gregg, Virgil E. (I12538)
 
732 According to Kendall, her parents "moved from Sadsbury, [Lancaster Co.,] Penn. to the Warrington, Virginia (Irish) Friends settlement about 1759 after having left Lisburn, Ireland Mar. 23, 1734 and arrived at the colonies in Philadelphia Jan. 6, 1727-28" (136). Steer, Hannah (I12223)
 
733 According to Lash's summary of Lowell, "Joseph Decker was a small baby when baptized in Newington. . . . He married Rachel Boynton, daughter of Caleb Boynton, Jr., and his wife Christian (Parsons) Boynton. That he lived in Portsmouth before moving to Wiscasset, Maine, is evidenced by the fact that eh sold one half part of one acre of land at Long Beach, Portsmouth, with buildings thereon, to John Hodgdon (his sister Mary's husband) April 28, 1755, and Rachael his wife also signs the deed. In this deed he is styled 'shipwright' and of Wiscasset." Decker, Capt. Joseph (I6146)
 
734 According to Lee, "he became a Lt. in the U.S. Marines and later served in the Spanish-American War. He retired as a Major in 1901. He married . . . in 1888, a divorced woman, who was born in Norfolk and was remembered as a belle and heiress. Carroll retired at Minnie's request so they could devote themselves to society. . . . Minnie and Carroll separated after she lost her money. She moved to New York. In 1912 both Minnie and Carroll returned to Washington separately." Mercer, Carroll (I12392)
 
735 According to Levensaler, he served in the War of 1812 when he was mobilized to defend against a possible British invasion of Camden harbor. Levensaler, Peter (I6413)
 
736 According to Little, "He came to Kittery, Maine, with his father [Henry] about 1720, and settled at Scarborough between 1730 and 1736. The intention of his marriage to Lydia Came was recorded at Kittery, January 8, 1725. They had seven children . . . "

He arrived in Maine the same year as Bryce McLellan. 
Boothby, Thomas (I13289)
 
737 According to Little, "He was a captain of the war of 1812. He became one of the original settlers of Durham, Maine, the number of his lot being 89, and his farm was cleared by him from the unbroken forest; he also engaged in the manufacture of plows; ox yokes; and other implements for the use of farmers. He married Hannah, daughyter of John and Elizabeth (Dunning) Stackpole, sister of his brother Joseph's wife, who died at Durham, June 29, 1851."

This appears in the History and Genealogy of the Stackpole Family:

Hannah Stackpole (John, James, Philip, James) was born in Harpswell, Me., 17 Oct. 1778. She married, 12 April 1796, Capt. William Webster, son of William and Jane (Little) Webster, grandson of James and Isable (Armstrong) Webster of Cape Elizabeth, now South Portland, Me. He was born at Cape Elizabeth 30 April 1774 and died in Durham, Me., 1 Oct. 1843."

This is the only place I've seen his grandmother Isabel's last name. 
Webster, William (I13286)
 
738 According to Little, "James Webster was admitted to citizenship in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, August 17, 1727, though it is not known from what part of New England he had previously come; he died about 1765. He married Isabel _______; children: John, born September 5, 1726; Mary, married George McLellan; James, married, September 22, Patience Webber; Thomas; William."

I don't see records of whom his parents might be. Savage lists a James Webster born 27 Aug. 1688 in Boston to James and Mary Webster, but no connection is made. There is a Webster family in Cutter, but I don't see a James there. And Little tells of a different Webster family on 2.895, apparently unrelated. 
Webster, James (I3391)
 
739 According to Little, "William, the youngest son of James and Isabel Webster, was born about 1749, in Cape Elizabeth for Falmouth, Maine, and removed to Gray, Maine, where he became captain of militia, and also one of the first board of selectmen. He married, December 24, 1769, Mrs. Jane (Little) Yeaton, and they had three sons who lived in Gray, Maine. . . . William, the father, died December 19, 1808." Webster, William (I13281)
 
740 According to Little, "William, the youngest son of James and Isabel Webster, was born about 1749, in Cape Elizabeth for Falmouth, Maine, and removed to Gray, Maine, where he became captain of militia, and also one of the first board of selectmen. He married, December 24, 1769, Mrs. Jane (Little) Yeaton, and they had three sons who lived in Gray, Maine." Little, Jane (I13282)
 
741 According to Lloyd, "Lewis Jarman from Llangurig, Montgomeryshire, probably a kinsman of John, was in Chester County, Pennsylvania, before 1715, and Edward Jarman, or Jerman, from the same neighborhood, was early in Philadelphia." The name is also "Garman."

"Edward Jarman, of Philadelphia, the father of Sarah, wife of Isaac Walker, hereafter mentioned, was probably also a son of John and Margaret. Sarah (Jarman) Thomas died July 6, 1769, and her husband, Reese Thomas, did not long survive her, dying in his forty-fifth year."

Two issues with these notes, which are very confusingly written.

1. Was "Sarah (Jarman) Thomas here, wife of Reese, Edward Jarman's wife whoe got remarried? This is not clear--though, it doesn't seem to be Edward's daughter Sarah, also a Sarah Thomas by her second husband Jacob, since she died much later.

2. Maybe Edward was John's child; I'll wait for better evidence. One would have to assume he died fairly young relative to the rest of the family--less than 20 years after the birth of the last of John Jarman's children. Edward is not mentioned in Margaret Jarman's will, but that would make sense if he died so long before his putative mother. 
Jarman, Edward (I4552)
 
742 According to Louis Giles (S231), "John Giles, planter, emigrated to Maryland asa a freeman sometime prior to May 1666 when he assigned the fifty acres due to him to John Gray and Joseph Marley and settled in Anne Arundel County near the West River. It is unknown whether Giles arrived in Maryland as a Quaker; however it is likely that he was converted to the faith by the flourishing community of Friends along the West River Meeting as early as 1668 when the birth of his daughter Elizabeth was recorded" (3). Skordas also has a John Giles who immigrated bef. 1666.

The rest of his children are recorded in the Meeting minutes as well. His son John Giles Jr. sold all of his land at West River to John Galloway in 1723, so the family fades out of Anne Arundel family history at that point (see S231 for more on the descent in Harford County), though some of John Giles Sr.'s children (incld. Artridge and John) had married into local families at that point. He moved farther south to the north side of the Patapsco, living between the Middle and North Branch, an area where he owned most--over 1500 acres--of the land (Giles, S231, p. 4).

He is included on the Quaker Ancestors page.

On this family, see:

1. Giles, Louis F., "The Giles Family of Harford County," MGSB 35 (1) (Winter 1994) 3-21.
2. Giles, Louis F., III, "The Giles Family of Old Somerset," MGSB 27 (2) (Spring 1987) 226-232.

It might be worth noting that there is also a John Giles family on the Eastern Shore. Richard Giles, son of John Giles of the Isle of Wight, m. 4 Feb. 1725 to Phebe Martin, widow. His son John Giles married Ann Mulliken, dau. of Samuel and Ann Mullikin. See Peden and Wright, Colonial Families of the Eastern Shore (Westminster, 2000), vol. 7, 134-36.

He seems to be the earliest member of the Hodges family on this site. 
Hodges, Thomas Sr. (I8154)
 
747 According to Mackenzie (S166, p. 112):

THOMAS LANSDALE BERRY was educated at George G. CAREY'S school for boys, Baltimore, Md., now Dunham's Latin School for Boys, finishing there in 1872. Was in the employ of the (now National) Bank of Commerce in 1873-74-75.
