Note: Aunt Helah Moreh Dale (sister to Lucinda Elliot Dale) married to Charles Crain/Crane in Warren County, Ohio on March 13, 1867. It is indicated that by the time of this marriage, Elliot Dale was already deceased. Per the 1880 Census, Charles and Helah's family (themselves with three daughters) were living in Xenia, Greene County, Ohio. From this statement from Helah Moreh Miller to her older brother in Newton Elwood Miller's write-up of his life in "Reminiscent Notes" Douglas Lloyd Buchholz was able to discern the ancestry of Lucinda Elliot (nee: Dale) Miller's ancestry.
From the Phillips County Historical Book page 24 and 25, Mrs. Adelia Wilnerd, wife of Dean Wilnerd of Almena, Kansas...stated, "The Millers, with their first three children, left Ohio in the Fall of 1880 by Prairie Schooner. They traveled through Indianapolis, Springfield, and crossed the Mississippi River at Warsaw. After six weeks of travel they crossed the Missouri River and spent the fir winter in Brownville, Nebraska. In the Spring of 1881, they came to Republican City, Republic County, Kansas and spent two years there. In the Spring of 1884, they came to Phillips County, Kansas and purchased land eight miles northeast of Phillipsburg, Kansas. The land was in the Johnson Neighborhood and was sometimes called Big Creek. The original 160 acre farm was purchased for $125.00 dollars. A dugout built into the bank on the north side of the draw was their first home in the area.
The front was sod laid up as brick. the second Spring they built a frame house. Later they built a cyclone cellar, a cave in the hillside, as protection from the windstorms. The cave often served as an extra bedroom when there were guests visiting. The children attended a sod school located one mile north of their home' Miss Lou Crysler was their teacher. When Byron Miller was 18 years of age he went to Marshall, Illinois and on August 01, 1862 he enlisted in the Civil War. "Lord" Byron Miller served as a private in Company F., 79th Regiment of the Illinois volunteer Infantry. He served 3 years, 3 months, 3 days and was discharged June 12, 1865 at Springfield, Illinois. His death came on May 05, 1928, in Phillips County, Kansas. His widow Lucinda Elliot (nee: Dale) Miller died January 15, 1938, also in Phillips County, Kansas. Both are buried at Pleasant Hill Cemetery.

Notes for Newton Elwood Miller:
Newton Elwood Miller states in his write-up entitled "Reminiscent Notes" page 6, " The next Spring (1887 or 1888), I went two miles west of Phillipsburg, to live with Edward Sawyer. I did the chores for my board and attended the McIlvane School, with L.E. Countryman as teacher. Sawyer was an infidel and his wife was a 7th Day Adventist. He asked me hard questions and refused to accept my answers unless I could find them in the Bible. This led me to search the Scriptures and proved to be
helpful to me. The next Spring I worked again for Edward Sawyer on the farm and to counteract his influence over my thinking I went to church in Phillipsburg nearly every Sunday. In those days my Sunday school teacher was J. Fred Morse. To be in his class every Sunday was a source of help in those days of temptation and uncertainty."

quiet to the public feeling, and to wipe away those foul reports now staining my character abroad--I have thought it my duty to give a particular description of his person, and request all those who have a feeling for suffering innocence, to ive me information by letter, or by publishing in some public paper that circulates in this country, of the said Charles Woodward, if any can be had of him (dead or alive) -- wherefore, to the end that information be had, I humbly solicit the Editors of newspapers throughout this country, to give the foregoing a place in their respective papers, and much oblige their humble and obedient servent.

Robert's son Andrew Blair, along with Elihu Sabin, Reuben Smith, Elisha Sheppard, Reuben Crosby, Thomas Ransom, Azatiah Boody, and Ephraim Perrin, were the earliest settlers of Goshen Gore (now called Stannard) VT, around 1803. The Vermont Historical Magazine noted that Andrew Blair, the magazine reports: "Had the Olympic races come down to our times, Mr. Blair, according to report, might have, become a successful competitor for a crown. It is current that he once ran down and captured a fox, and was overheard holding a parley with the captive, whether the thing was done fair. But, unlike the Olympic races, not having an impartial judge to decide the points, the fox seemed to dissent from his victor's boast of fair play. Now,' says Mr. Blair, 'if you think the thing was not done fair, we'll try it again.' Whereupon the fox was let go, and was allowed to have a few rods the start, when Blair took the track. Away went the fox-away went Blair; one for life, the other for victory, over hill, over fence, over brush, till Blair caught the breathless trophy, a second time, in triumph.

Notes for Joseph Fish:
In the winter of 1795, Joseph Fish, with his wife Sarah and their eldest son, Lemuel, then a babe of eight months, left their home in Reading, Vermont and with an ox-team loaded with their household stuff and a limited supply of provisions, found their way through the woods to Durham, Quebec. After remaining a short time at that place, the sent back their team and set out on foot to seek a home on the eastern side of Lake Memphremagog. Sarah (nee: Spear) Fish carried her baby all the way in her arms, and Joseph loaded with a pack of no small dimensions. After crossing the Lake and staying
a day or two at the log cabin of Captain Hovey, the directed their course to a place on Negro River, about a mile above Borough's Falls. Here they put up a temporary shanty on a rising ground near the river. The place is still known as "Shanty Hill". They were poor, and their hardships and privations were for many years very severe. Some time elapsed before they were able to clear land sufficient to raise their bread, and still a longer time before they could get their grain ground into meal. During the first seven years of their experience, there was not a grist meal within the distance of twenty
miles from their dwelling. From 1795 to 1802, they pounded their grain in a large mortar made from a heavy block of maple. For variety, they sometimes boiled and ate their wheat and Indian corn whole. The supply of fish from the lake and river was abundant and contributed materially to their support. From 1802, their difficulties began to lessen. The wooden mortar was thrown aside (although long preserved as memento) and they enjoyed the luxury of loaves baked from well-ground flour. The shanty had, meanwhile, been superceded by a substantial log house of limited
dimensions, and which furnished them with a comfortable home. In 1795, Mrs. Fish was playfully called "the handsomest woman in the town", there being no other woman in the settlement. In the mean time, their family increased, and, by industry and economy, their means increased; after residing some seven years in this locality, they removed to No. 9, 1st Range of Hatley near Charleston-now Hatley Village, which lot Mr. Fish had drawn as an Associate of Hovey and Cull. here they passed their last days in comfort and prosperity, and lived to see their children and grandchildren well settled in life, and with hardly an exception sustaining respectable and useful positions in the community.

97. Mary Lawrence, born 1757 in Orange, North Carolina; died 20 Apr 1802 in Jefferson County, Tennessee.

Notes for John Cate:
The family name of Cate is an old one of Norman origin. It has been through many changes. It was originally Auchatour, meaning "steward or caretaker of a royal castle." From this it gradually changed ( in England) to Chater, Catte, then Cate.
Whether the family came to England before, during or immediately after the Norman invasion in 1066 is unknown. The name spelled Chater, Catte and Cate even in cases of the same household may be found in Domesday Book, Ragmans Rool and The Roll of Hundreds, the first three censuses taken by the Normans for tax purposes between the years 1085 and 1185. In literature about the Norman people we find Cate, Cates or
Catt. After residing in England for more than 500 years the Cate Family started westward. James Cate and his brothers came to New England for religious liberty because of the oppression of the Anglician Church enforcement by the English government. James and William Cate settled in New Hampshire in 1657. After an
English Colony at Edenton, North Carolina was attacked by Indians in 1715 a Joshua Cate left the Edenton Colony and settled in Orange County, North Carolina. It is thought that Joshua Cate was the father or grandfather of John Cate, Sr. who is the ancestor of many of the East Tennessee Cates. John Cate, Sr. was born in 1753 in Orange County, North Carolina. Records have him listed as a patriot who
rendered public service during the Revolution in North Carolina, being paid for this service. He was married the first time and had a son, William, c. 1768-69. He was married the second time in 1770, in North Carolina to Mary____. He left Orange County, North Carolina in 1782 and went west for a greater religious freedom
than existed there where English prejudice prevailed. He went to Dumplin Valley when this region was called Washington County and was a part of North Carolina. This was a journey of 300 miles across mountains and rivers and through trackless forests into a wilderness, a valley used by Cherokee Indians as a hunting ground. He located near the present site of Dumplin Church, Jefferson County, Tennessee. He was the first settler in Jefferson County. He was also the first member enrolled in the Dumplin Baptist Church when it was organized in1797.

The children of John Cate, Sr:
1. William, by first marriage, c. 1768-69, maybe other children.

2. John Cate Jr., born September 16, 1771, married Mary Koontz.

3. Thomas Cate, born 1776, married Ava Wilhite.

4. Jesse Cate.

5. Annie Cate, married _____Turner.

6. Pricilla Cate, born 1780, married ______Koontz.

7. Samuel Cate, born 1783, married Barbara Wilhite. Settled in Iowa.

8. James Cate, born 1790, married Elizabeth Lindsay, born 1790, Virginia.

9. Mary ( Mollie) Cate, born 1790, twin of James married (1)Abraham McCleary,(2) Robert Bales.

10. Joshua Cate, born March 10, 1792, married Elizabeth Wilhite.

11. Elijah Cate, born August 3, 1794.

12. Rachel Cate, youngest in family, married Alexander England.

It is interesting to note that John Cate, Jr. and Priscilla Cate married Koontz', while Thomas, Samuel and Joshua married Wilhites.
John Cate, Sr. died in 1828 and is buried in the Dumplin Baptist Church Cemetery. The cemetery in on a hill behind the Dumplin Baptist Church. The gravestone has a DAR plaque , which reads:

Notes for Thomas Cate:
Thomas Cate was born in 1776 and died August 14, 1846. He is buried in the Cate Family Cemetery, Elijah Cate Farm in Niota, Tennessee. He married Ava (Avy) Wilhite April 23, 1802 in Jefferson County, Tennessee.

According to Goodspeed, "History of East Tennessee", he was born in Virginia ( possibly section owned variously by North Carolina and Virginia and later a part of Tennessee). Ava was a native of South Carolina. In November, 1820 Thomas Cate purchased 160 acres in the Hiwassee District at the rate of $7.60 per acre. In the Jefferson County Tax List for 1822, he had 300 acres and 1 black person. He probably came to McMinn County shortly thereafter. In 1836 McMinn Tax List, he is the
owner of 376 acres and four slaves. In March 1854 disposition was made of Thomas Cate's estate. Evidently he was in poor health, and wanted the "arrangement" drawn up while he was still able to do so. His real estate was transferred to his sons, Greenberry and Lea, with careful and full provision made for "Avy", his wife.
Gravestones in the old cemetery on Big Spring Farm bear these inscriptions:"In memory of Thomas Cate, aged 70 years": "In memory of Ava Wilhite Cate, aged 75 years".

120. Robert Thomas Curren, born in Ireland. He married 121. Margaret.

121. Margaret, born in Ireland.

Notes for Robert Thomas Curren:
Robert was reportedly a Irish Barrister. When his wife died, Robert brought his three children to America in 1789. They came to Tannytown and then moved to South Western Virginia.

From David Curren:
Legend has it that Thomas Curren was a barister in Northern Ireland, that he had lost one leg, and that he and his wife, Margaret, brought their two young children, Mary and Joseph, to Washington County, Virginia in 1784. Legend does not tell us how Thomas lost his leg, but, it goes further to say, once he and Margaret became settled in their new enviroment on the southwestern border of Virginia, in the foothills of the Cumberland Mountains, they had a second daughter, born 1790, and they named her Pherriby. How Thomas and Margaret spent the remainder of their lives is not recorded. Thomas, being a lawyer, most likely "hung a shingle" over his door and performed legal work for the sparse population......preparing wills, land deed, or representing a neighbor in a minor dispute. One wonders, too, what propted them to emigrate in the first place? Religious/political unrest, which had been stirring in the British Isles for s
ome time?.....Margaret and Thomas were Protestant. Perhaps just hearing about this distant "America" a peoples striving for freedom of thought and opportunity.....a place where one could purchase their own land and be their own person?
The children were raised in Virginia and thereafter lived in proximity to each other the rest of their lives. All three, and their repsective spouses, are buried in Marlborough Cemetery, Delaware County, Ohio. Mary Curren had married Joseph Cole in Virginia, and they had five children by 1808. It was that year Joseph Cole and his brother-in-law, Joseph Curren, drove a four horse team pulling a covered wagon from Virginia to De
laware County, Ohio where each purchased their own land......Curren from proceeds he had earned teaching school in Virginia. The two friends helped each other build their houses; the first house, not completed, had the wagon canvas covering the roof.....several days of hard rain caused leaks, and the two men spent Christmas day splitting wood to shingle the roof.
When the homes were completed, Joe Cole retured to Virginia and brought Mary and the kids to their new home in Ohio. They also brought the younger Pherriby Curren with them. A few years later, Pherriby married Elisha Bishop.
Joe Curren rode to Cumberland Gap with an extra horse, married beautiful brown-eyed 15 year old Elizabeth Hopkins, and they too, returned to Ohio and their new home. Joe continued with his interest in teaching, and was instrumental in establishing the first organized school system in the rural areas of Delaware County.
I do believe it was a contest, but each family, Joseph and Elizabeth Curren and Joseph and Mary Cole, had ten children who lived through infancy.
Most of those children married neighboring acquaintances, setting up house keeping in Delaware County, and some in Marion County, just to the north. The following generation of children began moving westward to Iowa, Kansas and Missouri.
Our next direct descendat was Stephen Curren, son of Joseph and Elizabeth. Stephen married a neighboring young woman, Clarisa Stratton, whos parents Isaac Stratton from Vermont and Smith from Massachusets. The Stephan Curren's had seven children, the eldest being Joseph Francis Curren

Children of Robert Curren and Margaret are:
i. Mary Curren, born 05 Aug 1778 in Ireland; died 06 Jul 1865 in Delaware County, Ohio; married Joseph Cole in Washington, Virginia; born 12 Dec 1775; died 01 Mar 1849 in Delaware County, Ohio.

Notes for Nathaniel Woodward:
Declared "unfit for military service-unable to bear arms". SOURCE: 1777 Military Census Index Page 4.

Land Records:
Dec 1751, Nathaniel Woodward late of Providence, RI, mariner to John Lavary, of Provindce--trader & Shopkeeper (default on debt). Dec 05, 1754, Thomas Woodward of Smithfield, RI to "my son" Nathaniel for 600 pounds for (30) acres of
land in Smithfield, RI plus one room in Thomas Woodward dwelling house.

Dec 18, 1764, Nathaniel Woodward for (9) pounds sold to Jeremiah Robinson of Smithfield (6) acres of land in Smithfield. Nathaniel & Mary couldn't sign but by their mark. Undated (1760's?) Thomas Woodward for (800) pounds sold (20) acres to Nathaniel Woodward.

Thomas & Nathaniel Woodward deeded the farm on which they lived in Smithfield, Rhode Island which was about (15) acres of land, to Ezekial Angell of Smithfield for (462) pounds. Both Nathaniel and his father signed with their mark.

June 1767, Moses Brown of Providence, RI, merchant, had a land conflict with Thomas Woodward, Jeremiah Woodward, Robert Woodward, John Young, Jeremiah Robinson, and Nathaniel Woodward regarding a partition of Smithfield, Rhode Island land held in common (by fee) since before June 1765. This conflict went on into 1768.

January 01, 1772, Thomas Woodward and son Stephen Woodward of Smithfield, RI deeded to son Nathaniel Woodward (4) acres for the sum of (30) pounds.

March 01, 1779 Nathaniel Wooward of Smithfield, RI deeded to Ezekial Angell, for (526) pounds, the land and dwelling house in Smithfield, Rhode Island.

Speculation has it, that if Nathaniel Woodward did not die about 1780 in Smithfield, Rhode Island that he did so enroute to, or while traveling on, the Bayley Hazen Road leading to Peacham, Caledonia County, Vermont and points northward.

v. Clergy Woodward, born 1765 in Smithfield, Providence County, Rhode Island; died 23 Nov 1864 in Cabot, Washington County, Vermont; married Deborah Taylor; born Bet. 1770 - 1778.

Notes for Clergy Woodward:
Per Zoe I. Coburn Notes.
Clergy Woodward obtained a legal residence in Peacham, Caledonia County, Vermont and later moved to Hardwick, Caledonia County, Vermont of the same county aforesaid. While in Hardwick, he and his family became a public charge, and Peacham had to pay Hardwick $130.00 dollars for his support in 1820. The constable, George W. Clark, was severly blamed for not having warned Woodward out of town (Peacham) on Jan 04, 1808. The family was again warned-out-of-town (Danville) on Mar 17, 1812; and again while in Hardwick, Vermont on Jan 26, 1816. The altercation
with the Town of Hardwick required a vote of the next town meeting to absolve the constable from liability. Clergy's brother's Jeptha Woodward, Amaziah Woodward, and a Benjamin Woodward (either Benja. was a brother or nephew to Clergy) gave testimony at the hearing over the matter.

Also notice that there is a ten year gap between Mercy Woodward and Josiah S. Woodward. Almost ten years!!! Perhaps Deborah Taylor was a second wife and the first wife was possibly of Abenaki ancestry?!

In Clergy Woodward's descendency there is Indian oral history somewhat documented by a descendant; and also by her Aunt who is also descended from Clergy Woodward.

Notes for Deborah Taylor:
Clarification: Deborah Taylor may not be a daughter of this couple, as recently per the History of Sanbornton, New Hampshire Book on page 754: 3. Jeremiah Taylor (son of 2. Chase Taylor and Phebe Hayes, son of 1. Nathan Taylor and Anne Chase) and his wife Susannah Tilton, daughter of Deacon Nathaniel Tilton did have a daughter Debora of which nothing is mentioned in the book about her birth, marriage, or death.

Perhaps Clergy Woodward's wife Deborah Taylor is this Jeremiah Taylor and Susannah Tilton's daughter. More research will need to be done and documentation
found to confim her correct line of Taylor descent. In the meantime, I have placed her as being the daughter of Edward Taylor and Elizabeth Sarah Stevens merely because of the Woodward family and the Taylor family in Deweysburgh living close to each other, since many as the Taylor's and Woodward's were neighbors to the Sawyer family.

 562. Jonathan Chase and 563. Joanna Palmer.

Notes for Nathan Taylor:
Nathan Taylor was said by some to have immigrated to this country direct from England. It seems a more probable supposition, however, as claimed by others, that his father, being immigrant ancestor, came to Stratham, New Hampshire from Massachusetts, and that Edward Taylor, "of Stratham", grantee of Sanbornton, forty-fifth on the original "Petition", and drawer of Lots 5, 1st Division, and 26 in the 2nd Division, was Nathan Taylor's younger brother. Stratham, was at any rate, a "radiating point" of the Taylor's of this branch to various parts of New Hampshire. More recent investigation of the Stratham, New Hampshire records show that one "Benjamin Tailor" was there living in 1718 and was selectman in 1726. He was quite probably the father of Nathan Taylor and his older brother Edward Taylor. The latter was selectman of Stratham in 1749. Nathan Taylor resided in Stratham, New Hampshire, married to Anne or Anna Chase who was born in Stratham, N.H. in 1703. She died there in March 1740 age 37 years. Afterwards, Nathan Taylor relocated to Sanbornton, N.H. with his son Jonathan Taylor who was born Oct. 02, 1739.

There seems to be an undocumented child of Nathan Taylor and Ann Chase, being John Taylor who was born ca. 1723 who married to Phebe [Churchwell ?].

Children of Nathan Taylor and Anna Chase are:
140 i. John Taylor, born 1723 in Stratham, Rockingham County, New Hampshire; married Phebe Bef. 1749.

ii. Hannah Taylor, born 1725 in Stratham, Rockingham County, New Hampshire; died 1812 in Belknap County, New Hampshire; married ______ Mason.

iii. Chase Taylor, born Mar 1728 in Stratham, Rockingham County, New Hampshire; died 23 Aug 1805 in Sanbornton, Belknap County, New Hampshire; married (1) Sarah (nee: Putnam) Elkins; born 1742; died 04 Oct 1824 in Sanbornton, Belknap County, New Hampshire; married (2) Phebe Hayes 1752; born 1728 in Dover, Strafford County, New Hampshire; died 17 Feb 1786 in Sanbornton, Belknap County, New Hampshire.

Notes for Chase Taylor:
Chase Taylor married first to Phebe Hayes and first settled in Stratham, N.H., whence he removed to Sanbornton, N.H. in November 1768 with his family of seven children.
He is sad to have been "stuck in the mud" in the south edge of the township of Sanbornton, N.H. near the bridge., and to have been "helped out" and up to the square by John Sanborn. Though he drew, as grantee (47th on the "Petition" of 1748), Lots 25 and 13, and still kept possession of the same, yet he had already purchased, in addition, the more eligible Lot No. 38 in the 1st Division, and there made his first improvements.

iv. Anne Taylor, born 1731 in Stratham, Rockingham County, New Hampshire; died 16 Mar 1808 in Newmarket, New Hampshire; married Daniel Hilton; born 1725 in Exeter, Rockingham County, New Hampshire; died 06 Jan 1800 in Newmarket, New Hampshire.

v. Jonathan Taylor, born 21 Sep 1739 in Stratham, Rockingham County, New Hampshire; died 02 Mar 1816; married Rachel Moore 16 Oct 1760 in Stratham, Rockingham County, New Hampshire; born 1738 in Stratham, Rockingham County, New Hampshire; died 09 Dec 1808 in Stratham, Rockingham County, New Hampshire.

Notes for Jonathan Taylor:
Jonathan Taylor was of Stratham, New Hampshire on October 16, 1769. Accompanied his father Nathan Taylor to Sanbornton, New Hampshire about 1773, and settled where his grandson Andrew J. Taylor now resides, on Lot No 9, in the 2nd Division. There he kept one of the first taverns in the town of Sanbornton, N.H. Jonathan Taylor was one of the most worthy and substantial of the early settlers, and would doubtless have proved equally patriotic with his older brother, during the Revolutionary war, but for the condition of his young family and the charge of his aged father, to him committed.

In the Pennsylvania Aprchives, Series 2, VOlume XVII, immigrants who landed at Philadelphia August 28, 1735 are listed.

Three more children named as George Michael (5); Anna Barbara (03); and Johann Adam born February 1733 were evidently left behind until the family became settled in Pennsylvania. One of these children died in Germany.
The family is said to have remained some years in Pennsylvania, probably in Berks County, and Michael is reported to have died there July 29, 1749.
Another source reports that they moved to the South Branch of the Potomac River in Virginia and that Michael Busch's estate was settled there on March 21, 1775, indicating that he had died near that date. Also his wife was listed in the estate settlement as "Catherine", suggesting that Eva had died and Michael had remarried.

Encyclapedia: Vol. 9, page 30: "In the Augusta County Regiment....General Lewis's
Army...1774...Captain Nalle's Company of Volunteers...John Bush, Sergeant."
Janis Bush lived for some time in Pendleton County, as he is listed on the estate settlement of a Mr. Richardson May 21, 1760. In 1781 Janis recieved a certificate "...of 200 acres on the Buckhannon River, adjoining lands of John Hacker, to include his improvements made in 1773..." He married Mary Hacker in the present area of Buckhannon West Virginia. Dennis Rodgers wrote: "Within the territory of present day Lewis and Upshur counties there were two primary forts in those days, both privately constructed: West's Fort at Jane Lew (built by Edmund West Sr.) and the larger fort at Buckhannon called Bush's Fort (built by John Bush). Neither of these so-called forts was much more than a blockhouse or oversized log cabin enclosed by a wooden stockade fence." Bush's Fort was attacked by Indians in March of 1782 and on march 08, 1782 the fort was abandoned and the John Bush family and others moved to the Tygart's Valley. The family remained in the Tygart's Valley for a time and the moved to Kentucky.

Ebenezer Britton was active in church and town matters, serving as deacon and many times as selectman, and was representative in 1776, 1777 and 1778, and member of the Continental Congress 1777-1778.
Ebenezer Britton, fourth son of William and Lydia Britton, was born 1 June 1715 in Raynham, Bristol Co., Massachusetts, where he lived about 55 years, died 21 January 1788 in Westmoreland, Cheshire Co., New Hampshire, where he is buried in North Cemetery.

He bought one hundred acres of land there July 6 of that year, and also purchased a grist and saw mill with twelve acres -- the first mills built in that town. The grantor was James Minot, of Putney, "province of New York," the jurisdiction of Vermont then being in dispute. Putney is on the opposite side of the Connecticut River from Westmoreland.
Ebenezer Britton was a warm patriot in revolutionary days and signed the "association test." When his neighbors were troubled about the depreciation of continental money, he said: "I am not afraid of continental money; it will be redeemed in good time; redeemed or not redeemed, no soldier who has fought under George Washington shall go hungry while I have corn to feed him!" Several of his sons were enlisted in the army. He was active in church and town matters, serving as deacon and many times as selectman, and was representative in 1776, 1777 and 1778, and member of the Continental Congress 1777-1778. He died at Westmoreland 21 January 1788. He married first 20 May 1735 Tabitha, daughter of Seth Leonard, his cousin, who died in 1749.

Notes for John Runnels:
Will in New Hampshire State Papers
Runnels Genealogy says married twice and first wife (mother of Abrham) unknown. This is most likely an error based on the date of his marriage and its relation to the birth of Abraham. Perhaps Quaker dates were used and misinterpreted. Parentage proved in York, ME Deeds 14:168 where John of Oyster River, NH sells to Thomas Perkins 200 acres belonging to his uncle John Runnels, deceased. The deed mentions his grandfather William and father Job, deceased and is dated May 1721

Notes for Johann Michael Wilheit:
---Source: Johni Cerny, P. O. Box 417, Salt Lake City, UT 84110 - found in parish records in Schwaigern, Germany.
---Source: Paul E. Lawrence
---Johann remained in Germany until 1717 and it is said that he spent a few years in England before coming to America about 1720 but no record of him has been found in England. A ship record has not been found. The first record of him in America was when he bought land from agents of Gov. Spotswood. Of his children born in Germany, only two, Tobias and Johannes, show up alive in VA.
---The two wives of Johann were cousins. The dates of the various records (birth, marriage and death) are as given in the Schwaigern records, but this was at the time of the change-over from the old to the new calendar.
Warren Wilhite says,"It was not that any hanky-panky was going on, they just didn't know what year it was. It even caused riots in England".
---Michael made a will Jan. 1, 1742 in Orange Co., VA. Text is located at Paul E. Lawrence's Web Site.
---He is believed to have been a member of the second Germanna Colony established in 1717. The first Germanna Colony consisted of Germans recruited by Governor Alexander Spotswood from the Nassau Siegen area as skilled laborers for his iron works. These immigrants have been thoroughly researched and documented. The second colony established in 1717 has been more of a mystery. Much of the mystery has been resolved by the examination of records in Wurttemberg and Baden by Cerni and Zimmerman in BEFORE GERMANNA NO. 1.
"The members of the second colony, comprised of Lutherans, left Germany on 12 July 1717 for Pennsylvania. Their choice of vessel was unfortunate. The vessel made the customary stop in London, but the colonists were detained for several weeks while the captain of the vessel was imprisoned for debt. Food supplies dwindled while the passengers waited for the captain's release. Starvation claimed several lives at
sea. There are no details of the crossing but the captain did not land in Pennsylvania. Instead, he took the approximately 100 passengers to Virginia where he sold them as indentured servants to Spotswood to pay for their passage and confiscated their belongings. Spotswood may have recognized the injustice done these immigrants, but he nonetheless profited from the situation to extract eight years of indentured labor from them. They were not released until 1725, a year longer than was customary. "
---Even though he was not among the 19 colonists being sued by Spotswood, the belief that Johann was part of the second colony is based on the fact that his name disappears from parish records in Schwaigern after 13 Dec. 1715, the birth of his son, Johan Cristian; he was granted land at the same time in 1724 and in the same
Robinson River area as other recognized members of the second colony; and his family attended the Hebron Church in Orange County where the German Lutherans of the second colony worshipped.

Nurse was found guilty the second time because of the reconsidered evidence and her failure to respond to questions because her poor hearing. Her reputation as a good and prudent women didn't help her escape the gallows. She was excommunicated, but her decendents had it revoked on March 6, 1712.

Another bit of information on Rebecca (nee: Towne) Nurse:
Rebecca Nurse was the daughter of William Towne, of Yarmouth, Norfolk County, New England where she was baptized Feb. 21, 1621. Her sister Mary (also accused and put to death for witchcraft) married Isaac Easty. Another sister, Sarah Cloyce, was also accused of witchcraft. Nurse's husband was described as a "traymaker." The making of these articles and similar articles of domestic use was important employment in the remote countryside. He seems to have been highly respected by his neighbors, and more often than anyone else was called in to settle disputes. Nurse had four sons and four daughters. Nurse was one of the first "unlikely" witches to be accused. At the time of her trial she was 71 years old, and had "acquired a reputation for exemplary piety that was virtually unchallenged in the community." It was written of Nurse: "This venerable lady, whose conversation and bearing were so truly saint-like, was an invalid of extremely delicate condition and appearance, the mother of a large family, embracing sons, daughters, grandchildren, and one or more great-grand children. She was a woman of piety, and simplicity of heart." That her reputation was virtually unblemished was evidenced by the fact that several of the most active accusers were more hesitant in their accusations of Nurse, and many who had kept silent during the proceedings against others, came forward and spoke out on behalf of Nurse, despite the dangers of doing so. Thirty-nine of the most prominent members of the community signed a petition on Nurse's behalf, and several others wrote individual petitions vouching for her innocence. One of the signers of the petition, Jonathan Putnam, had originally sworn out the complaint against Nurse, but apparently had later changed his mind on
the matter of her guilt. Unlike many of the other accused, during the questioning of Nurse, the magistrate showed signs of doubting her guilt, because of her age, character, appearance, and professions of innocence. However, each time he
would begin to waiver on the issue, someone else in the crowd would either heatedly accuse her or one of the afflicted girls would break into fits and claim Nurse was tormenting her. Upon realizing that the magistrate and the audience had sided with the afflicted girls Nurse could only reply, " I have got nobody to look to but God." She then tried to raise her hands, but the afflicted girls fell into dreadful fits at the motion.
At Nurse's trial on June 30, the jury came back with a verdict of "Not Guilty." When this was announced there was a large and hideous outcry from both the afflicted girls and the spectators. The magistrates urged reconsideration. Chief Justice Stoughton asked the jury if they had considered the implications of something Nurse had said. When Hobbs had accused Nurse, Nurse had said "What do you bring her? She is one of us." Nurse had only meant that Hobbs was a fellow prisoner. Nurse, however, was old, partially hard of hearing, and exhausted from the day in court. When Nurse was asked to explain her words "she is one of us," she did not hear the question. The jury took her silence as an indication of guilt. The jury deliberated a second time and came back with a verdict of guilty. Shocking as it seems today, it was not uncommon in the seventeenth century for a magistrate to ask the jury to reconsider its verdict. Her family immediately did what they could to rectify the mistake that had caused her to be condemned, but it was of no use. Nurse was granted a reprieve by Governor Phips, however no sooner had it been issued, than the accusers began having renewed fits. The community saw these fits as conclusive proof of Nurse's guilt.
On July 3, this pious, God fearing woman was excommunicated from her church in Salem Town, without a single dissenting vote, because of her conviction of witchcraft. Nurse was sentenced to death on June 30. She was executed on July 19. Public outrage at her conviction and execution have been credited with generating the first vocal opposition to the trials. On the gallows Nurse was "a model of Christian behavior," which must have been a sharp contrast to Sarah Good, another convicted witch with whom Nurse was executed, who used the gallows as a platform from which to call down curses on those who would heckle her in her final hour. It was not until 1699 that members of the Nurse family were welcomed back to communion in the church, and it
was fifteen years later before the excommunication of Nurse was revoked. In 1711, Nurse's family was compensated by the government for her wrongful death.

Testimonies during the Witchcrafting Trials of Salem, Massachusetts:
(Ann Putnam, Sr. v. Rebecca Nurse, Sarah Cloyce, Bridget Bisho, and Elizabeth Cary)
The Deposition of Ann putnam the wife of Thomas putnam who testifieth and saith that on the first day of June 1692. the Apperishtion of Rebekah Nurs did again fall upon me and almost choak me and she toald me that now she was come out of prision she had power to afflet me and that now she could for she tould me she had kiled benjamine Holton and John fuller and Rebekah Shepard: and she also toald me that she and her
sister Cloyes and Ed: Bhishop wife of of Salem village had kiled young Jno putnams Child because yong Jno putnam had said that it was no wonder they were witches for their mother was so before them and because they could not aveng themselves on him they did kill his child: and immediatly they did appere to me: six children in winding sheets which caled me aunt: which did most greviously affright me: and they tould me
that they ware my sisters Bakers children of Boston and that gooddy Nurs and Mistris Cary of Charletown and an old deaft woman att Boston had murthered them: and charged me to go and tell these things to the magestrats or elce they would tare me to peaces for their own blood did crie for vengance also their Appeared to me my own sister Bayley and three of hir children in winding sheets and tould me that gooddy Nurs had urthered them (Is Mistris Cary actually Martha Corey who gave birth to an illegitimate mulatto, whom lived with her and her second husband Giles Corey? Giles Corey had previously stolen food and tobacco prior to his arrest for witchcrafting. John Proctor previously accused him of setting fire to Proctor's house but John Proctor could not prove it. Giles Corey was the only victim to perish by being crushed to death, taunting his assailants saying to them "more weight" as they added heaviers stones on top of him, until his body collapsed. John Proctor was a native of Ipswich, Massachusetts, and moved to Salem, Massachusetts in 1666. Upon his father's death, he inherited a share of a profitable estate. He was a wealthy landown and owned a tavern on Ipswich Road. John was the first man to be accused of witchcrafting in Salem. He publicly supported and defended his 18 year marriage to his 3rd wife, Elizabeth when she was accused herself of witchcrafting. Elizabeth was in charge of running the family tavern, and had fought on two occasions with Robert Stone
regarding an unpaid tab at at the tavern. Her grandmother Ann B. Lynn was once suspected of witchcrafting. Since Elizabeth was pregnant at the time of her condemnation she was able to avoid avoid execution at her appointed time. By the time she had her child, those convicted of witchcrafting had been pardoned. Although
she was saved from being hung in the witchcrafting trials of the day, having been pardoned, she was still a convicted felon in the eyes of the law. Subsequently she could not claim any of her husband's property at the time of his death. On Dec 17, 1710 she was paid 578 pounds and 12 shillings as restitution for her husband's
death. Tituba, originally from an Arawak village in South America, was acquired by the unmarried merchant Samuel Parris, possibly was his concubine until she married to John, another Indian slave. Samuel Parris's family moved from London, England to Barbados where Samuel's father became a sugar planter and merchant. Samuel attended Havard College but returned to Barbados after his father's death in 1678. After a hurricane wrecked his business in the sugar industry, as a merchant, he decided to become a minister. Salem Village hired him as their minister in 1688.
Rebecca Nurse and Rev. Samuel Parris were in conflict over how much the minister would recieve as a salary and also in regards to the land & house which Samuel Parris wanted title to. Difficulties and acrimonious disputes over church affairs had long prevailed in this community, which reached a climax when the Rev. Samuel Parris was finally chosen, in 1689, to take charge of the parish affairs. Parris appears to have entered the ministry somewhat late in life and had spent considerable time in the West Indies in business pursuits. He brought with him to Salem Village two native servants, or slaves of West Indian and African blood, known as Indian John and Tituba his wife---the immediate instigators of the events which were soon to follow. Parris' difficulties began at once. He was at odds with his parishioners over salary, his parsonage, church
rates, and in fact, over all matters pertaining to the conduct of his office. This led to a degree of bitterness in the community unusual even in those times of agitated public feeling. Apart from church affairs, there were also many disputes as to land rights, and personal animosities were widespread and rancorous. The setting was complete for an emotional outbreak.
In the long and bitter winter of 1691-92, some young women and girls at Salem Village had some meetings to learn palmistry and fortune-telling from Tituba. She was skilled in necromancy and various magic arts --- perhaps African in origin, perhaps practiced by Indians---and found apt pupils in the children, who soon acquired proficiency in their use. Tituba claimed to know how to discover witches and the children may have
read about evidences of witchcraft, but at any rate those impressionable young people soon began to act queerly and have spasms and fits. These sessions apparently fired the imaginations of the girls, several of whom later started performing
nightmarish fits and telling tales of witchcraft and of being possessed of evil spirits amongst them in Salem.
On 20-Jan-1692, nine-year-old Elizabeth Parris and eleven-year-old Abigail Willams began to exhibit strange behavior, such as blasphemous screaming, convulsive seizures, trance-line states and mysterious spells. Within a short time, several other Salem Girls began to demonstrate similar behavior. Doubtless at the outset, all this was innocent enough, until it attracted the attention of the elders who were at first mystified and then alarmed. Instead of keeping the children quietly at home and breaking up the
meetings, their parents called in the local physician, Dr. Griggs. The doctor, who knew nothing about nerves and believed in witchcraft, finally decided, as was usual when the diagnosis was in doubt, that the actions of the girls in their fits and contortions could only be explained on the basis of witchcraft.
This group, known as the afflicted children, included: Elizabeth Parris, nine years old, daughter of the Reverend Samuel Parris. Abigail Williams, eleven years old, a niece of Mr. Parris and member of the household. Ann Putnam, twelve years old, daughter of Sergeant Thomas Putnam, clerk of the parish. Mercy Lewis, seventeen years old, who had been in the family of the Reverend George Burroughts while he was at the Village, but now was a servant in Sergeant Putnam's family. Mary Wolcott, seventeen years old, daughter of Captain Jonathan Wolcott, deacon of the parish. Elizabeth Hubbard, seventeen years old, a niece of Mrs. Griggs, wife of the Village Doctor. Elizabeth Booth, eighteen years old. Susannah Sheldon, eighteen years old. Mary Warren, twenty years old, servant in the family of John Proctor. Sarah Churchill, twenty years old, servant in the family of George Jacobs, Sr. These ten, with the occasional help of three married women, Mrs. Ann Putnam, mother of one of the girls, a Mrs. Pope, and Goody Bibber from Wenham, provided all the initial testimony on which nineteen persons were hanged, and well over a hundred more were cast into prison.
During the early spring of 1692 these children continued to have fits and convulsions at their meetings and attracted considerable attention to their antics and actions. They were all attributed by the people to witchcraft, and presently the children under this favorable notice began to extend their activities to the meeting-house on Sundays, crying out that they saw yellow birds sitting on the minister's hat, and other similar nonsense. It is not on record that Mr. Parris tried to suppress his niece and her friends and some of the parish grew annoyed and stayed at home. In late February Mr. Parris sent for the neighboring ministers to come to his house to conduct solemn services
to try to rescue the children from the clutches of the Evil One. Prayer services and community fasting were conducted by Reverend Samuel Parris in hopes of relieving the evil forces that plagued them. They corroborated the opinion of Dr. Griggs that the children's actions were the work of witches. In an effort to expose the "witches", Indian John baked a witch cake made with rye meal and the afflicted girl's urine. This
counter-magic was meant to reveal the identities of the "witches" to the afflicted girls.
Pressure was put on the children to tell who afflicted them an they began to name various people: Goody Good, Goody Osburn, and the old Indian woman Tituba, and warrants were obtained for their arrest. They were arrested on February 28, 1692.
On March 1, 1692, John Hathorne and Jonathan Corwin, the magistrates, proceeded in state to the Village to hear the cases, escorted by the marshal of Essex and the constables, and stopped at Nathaniel Ingersoll's tavern, but the gathering was so great that they had to adjourn to the meeting-house.

2186. William Towne and 2187. Joanne Blessing.

Notes for Mary Towne:
Two of Easty's sisters, Rebecca Nurse, and Sarah Cloyse were also accused of Witchcraft during the Salem outbreak, although there is ample evidence that all three were innocent. At the time of her questioning, Easty was about 58 years old and was married to Isaac Easty, with whom she had had seven children. Isaac owned and lived upon a large valuable farm. Her examination followed the pattern of most in Salem: the girls had fits, and were speechless at times, and the magistrate expostulated with
her for not confessing her guilt, which he deemed proven beyond doubt by the sufferings of the afflicted.
"How far have you complied with Satan?" "Sir, I never complied with him but pray against him all my days. What would you have Easty do?" "Confess if you be guilty" "I will say it, if it was my last time, I am clear of this sin." During the exam, when Easty clasped her hands together, the hands of Mary Lewis, one of the afflicted were clenched and not released until Easty released her hands, and when she inclined her head, the afflicted girls cried out to have her straighten her neck, because as long as her head was inclined their necks were broken.
Easty was committed to prison after her examination. For a reason not disclosed in any of the remaining records, Easty, after spending two months in prison, was discharged on the 18th of May. She and her family believed she would now be safe from further accusations. They were wrong. The release seems to have been very distasteful to the afflicted girls, they became determined to not let the matter rest, and redoubled their
energies to get her back into prison. On the 20th, Mary Lewis spent the entire day experiencing fits of unprecedented severity, during which time she said she was being strangled, and claimed "they will kill Easty out right." Several of the other afflicted girls claimed that they could see the apparition of Easty afflicting her, and people came from all around to see the fits. That evening a second warrant was issued for Easty's arrest.
At midnight, after experiencing two days of liberty and being reunited with her family, Easty was rousted from her sleep by the marshall, torn from her husband and children, and taken back to prison where she was loaded with chains. Once Easty was back in prisons with chains, Lewis's fits stopped. Easty was tried and condemned to death on September 9th. She was executed on September 22, despite an eloquent plea to the court to reconsider and not spill any more innocent blood. The court had long since
ceased to pay any attention to anything that was said by the condemned. On the gallows she prayed for a end to the witch hunt. Easty's parting communications with her husband and children were said by those who were present to have been "as serious, religious, distinct, and affectionate as could be expressed, drawing tears from the eyes of almost all present."
In November, after Easty had been put to death, Mary Herrick gave testimony about Easty. Herrick testified that she was visited by Easty who told her she had been put to death wrongfully and was innocent of witchcraft, and that she had come to vindicate her cause. Easty's family was compensated with 20 pounds
from the government in 1711 for her wrongful execution.

Notes for Edward Taylor:
Edward was a ships carpenter who lived for a long time at Salmon Falls. In March of 1693 Dover granted him land. In 1699 he sold his Salmon Falls land and moved to Exeter. He lived at Lamprill River.
On July 18, 1694: Abenaki Chief Abomazine, almost 300 Penobscot warriors, and few French attacked the settlement today along the south side of the Oyster River, at modern-day Durham, New Hampshire. The Indians were trying to sneak into the village when their presence was discovered. Some settlers escape, others retreat to fortified homes. 104 settlers werel killed and 27 taken hostage before the Indians withdrew. Four months later, Abomazine approached the fort at Pemaquid, under a white flag. He was seized by the garrison for his part in the attack. Bomazeen, an Indian of the Abenaquis (in the area of Kennebec, in Maine) chief who controlled the Indian raids at Oyster River and surrounding area. He was a fearless warrior who killed many of the early settlers in 1694. He was captured and sent to Boston where he was put on trial. Several witnesses of the massacre spoke against him. Bomazeen escaped with his life at the trial, but was later slain in an attack on the Norridgewock's village in 1724.
Edward Taylor was killed, and his wife Rebecca and a son were captured near Lamprey River April 26, 1704. The captives were taken to Canada, whence Mrs. Taylor was afterwards redeemed, having endured severe hardship.
In 1722 the enemy appeared at Lamprey River. Again, August 23, 1723, eighteen Indians attacked the garrisoned house of Aaron Rawlins. Mr. Rawlins was shot through the walls of the house he was defending and afterwards scalped, while the head of his eldest daughter, twelve years of age, was cut off. Mrs. Rawlins was the daughter of Edward Taylor, who was killed, and of his wife Rebecca, who was captured from the same farm, April 26, 1704. She was made prisoner while attempting to escape
from the house with a son and daughter who followed her. The mother was redeemed in a few years.
The son was adopted by the Indians, and lived with them all his days.
The daughter married a Frenchman, and when nearly sixty years old visited with her husband her native place, hoping to recover the patrimony which she supposed was left at the death of her father.

Notes for Rebecca:
Rececca and child were captured and taken to Canada. She returned before June 07, 1711 and married Thomas Dudley. Rev John Pike recorded in his journal the attack on Edward Taylor as he was between Exeter and Lamprill.

Notes for John Emery:
John Emery was a Carpenter in England; a Carpenter & Innkeeper. John (and presumably, his family) migrated in 1635, aboard the James. On 5 April 1635, "John Emery and Anthony Emery of Romsey, carpenters" were enrolled at Southampton for passage to New England on the ship "James of London".
John made Freeman on 2 June 1641 as the 3rd in a sequence of 4 Newbury men. He took the Oath of Allegiance near the end of his life in November 1678 as "John Emery Sr., 80". He must have been admitted to the Newbury Church before he made Freeman on June 02, 1641. However on May 05, 1663, Hon Emery was hauled into Court for "entertaining Quakers" and for stating that, "if they come to my house they should be
always welcome and I would not forbid them". Henry Jaques, constable of Newbury, came to court in May 1663 and presented John Emery, "for as much and John Emerie Sr. is one of our grand jury men this last year of our town of Newbury and he himself having broken the law as I do understand in entertaining of travellers and quakers into his house and one Mr. Greenland in all which disorder he have boldly insisted whereby
reproach and scandal is come upon our town to the dishonor of God and damage and hurt some of our neighbors." "As early as 1669, and continuing into the events of 1671, John Emery was active in his opposition to the Rev. Mr. Parker.
He is the father of John Emery junior, husband of Mary Webster, daughter of Mary Shatswell from her previous marriage appointed guardian (along with his son John Emery) for Israel Webster (at 18) and Nathan Webster (at 16), at their request 26 Sept 1662. Sailed from Southampton, England, 3 April 1635, on the ship James of London. He landed at Boston, 3 June 1635, and went soon to Newbury to settle. Either he or his son were convicted of "hospitality to Quakers" in 1663."presented by grand jury for
entertaining Quakers, the deposition alleging that "two mennequakers wr entertained very kindlie to bed and table & John Emmerie shok ym by ye hand and bid ym welcome"

Submitter's notes about the will: The Abraham Merrell in the phrase in his will "my suns John Emry and Abraham Merrell" is the husband of one of his step-daughters, Abigail. It is not clear who the "sixe children" are since he had fewer than six children of his own and more than six including his step-children. Probably it means his sons John and Jonathan, his daughters Ann and Ebenezer and his step-sons Israel and Nathan to whom he was guardian. Alternately it could be six children not otherwise mentioned There are still more than six, but there might have been only six living in the area. The reference to "my grand Child Mary Emarson" seems not to mean his son John's daughter, Mary. According to Genealogical Record of John and Anthony Emery of Newbury Massachusetts, 1590-1890, Rev Rufus Emery, Salem 1890, her married name was Sawyer. This is probably a daughter of his step-daughter, Hannah Webster who married Michael Emerson. According to an LDS source (not checked further) they had a daughter Mary born 5 Oct 1660 and married 28 Aug 1683, so she would have been Mary Emerson when John Emery wrote his will. Possibly she was his godchild.

_Albion's Seed_, David H. Fischer, New York 1989 p 96 mentions that children in Calvinist families were not named after their godparents, implying that Calvinists/Puritans had godchildren.
In a footnote _Davis Ancestors_ vol 1 pp 527-531, also 521-526 with reference to this legacy states "His wife's grandchild, Mary Emerson, was alive and unmarried at this time, and I see no reason to suspect that the legatee was the child of an unknown Emery. This legacy, even with her share of the residue added, was not large. His first family, not mentioned in the will by name, was middle-aged and well established, and his wife’s young granddaughter may have lived with the Emerys and very possible gained a generous place in the affections of an old man of eighty-three, who, as we have seen, was given to strong feeling."

He married 2187. Joanne Blessing 25 Apr 1620 in St. Nicholas Church, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk County, England.

2187. Joanne Blessing, born 1595 in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk County, England; died 22 Jun 1675 in Topsfield, Essex County, Massachusetts. She was the daughter of

4374. William Blessing.

Notes for William Towne:
William Towne was baptized in the church of St. Nicholas, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England, on March 18, 1598/9. He was married to Jone (Joanna) Blessing in the same church, where between 1621 and 1634, their first six children were baptized. It is believe his mother, Elizabeth Towne died in the first year of William's birth, possibly after childbirth, as his father re-married before Wm. was age two. As a result, William was raised by his step-mother, Margaret (Walden) Towne.
The first record of William in America appears in the town book of Salem, MA in 1640 when he was granted "a little neck of Land right over against his house on the other side of the river." In the same year he sued John Cook in what seems to have been a boundary dispute and obtained a verdict and costs. It is probable that Towne was in Salem some years before 1640, however. The list of grants by the town to that portion of its territory called the North Fields isundated and the best opinion seems to indicate that the grants were made before 1635, when the town records begin. William Towne's name appears on this list, and it was in the North Fields that he lived. In 1651, Towne purchased land in the neighboring town of Topsfield from William Paine of Ipswich. This farm contained forty acres "part of which is plow land, another part is meaddow, another part is upland unplowed, all lying together," bounded by William Howard toward the east, Walter Roper on the north and a "Sertaine River" toward the south or southwest. There were also included two acres on the south side of the
river. He sold his Salem property to Henry Bullock in 1652 and bought additional land at Topsfield in 1656. In 1660 in testifying in a lawsuit his age was estimated at three score years. When his son, Joseph married Phebe Perkins, d/o Deacon Thomas Perkins in 1663, William deeded two-thirds of his real property to Joseph. He and his wife assumedly lived on that property the remainder of their days.

Children of William Towne and Joanne Blessing are:
1093 i. Rebecca Towne, born 21 Feb 1621 in St. Nicholas, Yarmouth, Norfolk County, England; died 19 Jul 1692 in Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts; married Francis Nurse Abt. 1645 in Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts.

ii. John Towne, born 16 Feb 1623 in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk County, England.

iii. Susannah Towne, born Bef. 26 Oct 1625 in Norfolkd County, England.

iv. Edmund Towne, born Bef. 28 Jun 1628 in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk County, England; died 1678; married Mary Browning 1652 in Topsfield, Essex County, Massachusetts; born 1629 in England.

Notes for Edmund Towne:
Sergeant Edmund Towne was baptized in the church of St. Nicholas, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England, June 28, 1628. He came to New England when he was only nine years old as an apprentice of Henry Skerry on the ship "Rose" which sailed from Great Yarmouth in 1637. Skerry settled in Sale.
Edmund Towne m. Mary Browning, d/o Thomas and Mary Browning, about the year 1652, he was but twenty two and she fourteen years of age. They settled in Topsfield. He served on the trial jury of the County Court in 1655, was made a commoner in 1661, sat on the grand jury in 1663 and took the oath as freeman in 1664. He was appointed corporal of the Topsfield military company in June, 1666, and in 1675, during King Philip's War, he was one of the committee from the town which presented a petition to the General Court asking permission to form a military guard to protect the
settlers at their work. He was a selectman in 1673, town constable in 1675, and tythingman in 1677, when he is called Sergeant Towne.
He died in 1678, left no will, but his widow, Mary, proved a statement covering his "intent and purpose", saying "the mind of the deceased was as is mine alsoe; and is consented too by all partys conscerned that the four sonns shall have all the Lands Equally devyded amongst them, And the rest of the estate to be Equally devyded amongst the 5 garles only Sarah the secon dDaughter is already marryed and Hath rescieved to the vallue of twelve pounds already." There was a library in the 'goods' which denotes the family felt good books and reading was important.

Notes for Sarah Towne:
SARAH, bapt.

July 18, 1708.

The widow of Edmund Bridges and her children were ordered out of Topsfield by the constable, September 12, 1682. She was Sarah Town, daughter of William, and had probably returned to Topsfield after the death of her husband, which had occered a few months earlier. She soon became the second wife of Peter Cloyes and was accused of witchcraft, but was not executed.
(From 9/12/1682 - History of Topsfield)
* * * * *

On Monday, April 4, [1692] a complaint against Sarah Cloyse was presented to the magistrates of Salem Village, Massachusetts, on "Various charges concerning witchcraft." On Monday April 11, a hearing was held on these charges John Indian, Mary Wolcott, Elizabeth Proctor, Mercy Lewis, Ann Putnam Junior, and Abigail Williams, all testified against her, claming that she "hurt" them. The ruling was that. there was enough evidence to hold her for trial. Sarah was taken to Boston jail.
Before her trial Sarah along with her sister Mary Easty also accused of witchcraft, wrote this letter to the Court.
"The Humble Request of Mary Easty and Sarah Cloyse to the Honored Court humbly showeth that, wheras we two sisters, Mary Easty and Sarah Cloyse, stand now before the honored Court charged with the suspicion of witchcraft, our humble request is; first that, seeing we are neither able to plead our own cause, nor is council allowed to those in our condition that you who are our judges would please to be of council to us, to direct us wherin we may stand in need. Secondly that, whereas we are not conscious to ourselves of any guilt in the least degree of that crime whereof we are now accused (in the presence of the living God we speak it, before whose tribunal we know we shall before long appear), nor of any other scandalous evil or miscarriage inconsistent with Christianaity, those who have had the longest and best knowlege of us, being
persons of good report, may be asked to testify upon oath what they know concerning each of us; i.e., Mister Capen, the pastor, and those of the town and church of Topsfield, who are ready to say something which we hope may be looked upon as very considerable in thiis matter, with the seven children of one of us; i.e. Mary Easty. And it may be produced of like nature in reference to the wife of Peter Cloyse, her sister.
Thirdly that the testimony of the witches, or such as are afflicted as is supposed by witches, may not be called upon to condem us wiithout other legal evidence concurring. We hope the honored court and jury will be so tender of the lives of such as we are, who have for many years lived under the unblemished reputation of Christianity, as not to condem them without a fair and equal hearing of what may be said for us as well as against us. And your poor supplicants shall be bound always to pray, etc." At some point after this request Sarah Cloyse managed to escape from prison, saving herself from execution.

2242. Humphrey Wyeth, born 1591; died 1638 in Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts. He was the son of 4484. Benjamin Wise.

Notes for Humphrey Wyeth:
Humphrey Wise, the immigrant, was living in Ipswich, Massachusetts in 1635, although we do not know just when he came to America. He had a one acre house lot on the south side of the river, and apparently owned other property. His wife's name was Susanna (Susan), but her surname is not known. Humphrey lived in New England for a short time as he died in 1638; subsequently little information is available about
him. He did not leave a will.
After Humphrey's death Susanna married secondly in 1639, Samuel Greenfield of Salem, who was later accused by the court of having taken into his possession without legal order, the property which had belonged to Humphrey. On Jan. 13, 1639, the General Court of Boston ordered the Court at Ipswich "to examine and settle all things
belonging to the estate of Humfrey Wisse, including all the land sold and unsold." The Ipswich Court on Jan. 26, 1639, asked for an inventory of the estate which amounted to about 140 lbs. Mr. Greenfield must have been able to convince the court of his honesty, as it approved the sale of the house and land and such other sales as had already been made, and appointed him as administrator of the estate. He gave bond to handle the money and to bring up the five minor children until the boys were 21 and the girls 18 years of age, at which time each was to receive a cretain portion of the estate.
The court further agreed that with the consent of Samuel Greenfield and Susan, his wife, that Benjamin the oldest boy, should be apprenticed to his brother-in-law, Abraham Perkins, for seven years from Sept. 29, 1638. Since the apprenticeship was dated back it is probable that Benjamin had been living with his sister,
Mary, since that date. Humphrey and Susanna had eight children, all or most of whom must have been born in England. We do not have their birthdates or order of their births, except that the last five named were minors at the time of their father's death. The three oldest were apparently married and had received their share of the estate before Humphrey's death.

Notes for John Perkins:
John Perkins of Ipswich, Massachusetts was christened December 23, 1583 in Hillborough, Warwickshire, England. He emigrated from England to New England. John Perkins, Judith his wife, and their children came on the Ship "Lyon", which left England on December 1, 1630, and arrived on February 5, 1631 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts where the family stayed about two years before relocating to Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts. Their voyage was described as tempestuous.John died on September 20, 1654, in Ipswich, Essex County, Massashusetts. John married Judith Gates/Gator on October 9, 1608, in Hillmorton.
Judith was born on March 19, 1588, in Hillmorton, Warwickshire, England. Her parents were Michael Gater and Isabel Bailey. Judith Elizabeth died in 1684 in Ipswich. John and Judith's daughter, Mary Perkins, was accused as a witch in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. John was a freeman in May 1631. In 1633, he was a settler in Ipswich, MA. John's will was witnessed by William Bartholomew of Ipswich. John was a representative of the General Court in 1636. John owned a large island at the mouth of the Ipswich River, called "Perkin's Island." In 1856, this island was still owned by the Perkins Family. His house was near Manning's neck and close to the Ipswich river. John's will was dated March 38, 1654, and was proven September 1654. His estate was valued at 250 pounds, 5 shillings.

Notes for Mary Perkins:
On May 26, 1692, Mary [Perkins] Bradbury was named as a tormentor of Mary Walcott, Mercy Lewis, and Ann Putnam, Jr. She was arrested by Constable William Baker when she was 70 years of age. Her husband, Captain Thomas Bradbury, was disliked by Suzanna Martin for his suspected tampering with her father's will. On August 9, 1692, Mary's accusers depostions were taken. Suzanna Martin, enemy of her husband, was already hanged on July 19, 1692. Mary was supposedly seen signing the Devil's book. Other enemies were John Carr and his niece Anne Putnam, Jr. John
Carr desired to marry Mary Bradbury's daughter. Mary did not agree to his wants, since she thought her to be too young to marry. Later on, John Carr died in 1689. Mary Walcott and Ann Putnam, Jr. told the court that Uncle John appeared to them in a sheet as a spectre and told them that Mary Bradbury had killed him. John's brother William, on the other hand, felt that John Carr had died of natural causes. On Saturday, September 10, 1692, Mary [Perkins] Bradbury was sentenced to hang.
Most of the testimony against Mary came from the Endicotts and the Carrs. The Carrs were the brothers of Mrs. Ann Putnam, Sr. Samuel Endecott testified that butter he bought from Mary Bradbury turned rancid and full of maggots. They also said that she turned herself into a boar and charged Zerubabal, George, and Richard Carr's horses. James Carr was said to have been "behagged" when he was courting the same woman as one of Mary Bradley's sons. The flesh of the boar/swine was forbidden by Levitical law. Moses only warned about any "unclean" animals. The unclean mammals were those with cloven feet. Swines were thought to induce cutaneous disorders in hot climates. It was thought that leprosy was related to the eating of pork. Heathen nations like Palestine ate pork. A herd of swine (Matthew 8:32) allowed the devil to enter their herd. The wild boar makes its home in the woods (Psalms 80:13), which the English felt that pagan inhabitants in nature. After Mary's sentence a group of her supporters broke Mary Bradley out of jail. One of her accusers, Samuel Endicott, was said to have
left home around the same time as she broke out of jail. He never returned. Seven years later he was still not found and was declared legally dead. By Saturday, January 14, 1693 (four months later), Mary Bradbury was still in hiding, fearing that if she came back she would be charged for Samuel Endicott's murder. On Friday, May 12, 1693, Mary Bradbury rejoined her family and lived another seven years, until her death in 1700. By 1693, most prisoners were set free and the "Witch Hunt" was over.

Notes for Humphrey Wyeth:
Humphrey Wise, the immigrant, was living in Ipswich, Massachusetts in 1635, although we do not know just when he came to America. He had a one acre house lot on the south side of the river, and apparently owned other property. His wife's name was Susanna (Susan), but her surname is not known. Humphrey lived in New England for a short time as he died in 1638; subsequently little information is available about
him. He did not leave a will. After Humphrey's death Susanna married secondly in 1639, Samuel Greenfield of Salem, who was later accused by the court of having taken into his possession without legal order, the property which had belonged to Humphrey. On Jan. 13, 1639, the General Court of Boston ordered the Court at Ipswich "to examine and settle all things belonging to the estate of Humfrey Wisse, including all the land sold and unsold." The Ipswich Court on Jan. 26, 1639, asked for an inventory of the estate which amounted to about 140 lbs. Mr. Greenfield must have been able to convince the court of his honesty, as it approved the sale of the house and land and such other sales as had already been made, and appointed him as administrator of the
estate. He gave bond to handle the money and to bring up the five minor children until the boys were 21 and the girls 18 years of age, at which time each was to receive a cretain portion of the estate. The court further agreed that with the consent of Samuel Greenfield and Susan, his wife, that Benjamin the oldest boy, should be apprenticed to his brother-in-law, Abraham Perkins, for seven years from Sept. 29, 1638. Since the apprenticeship was dated back it is probable that Benjamin had been living with his sister, Mary, since that date. Humphrey and Susanna had eight children, all or most of whom must have been born in England. We do not have their birthdates or order of
their births, except that the last five named were minors at the time of their father's death. The three oldest were apparently married and had received their share of the estate before Humphrey's death.

Notes for Nathaniel Woodward:
Nathaniel Woodward seems to have been the standard bearer and later gallant captain of the Warwich Yeoman Guards, and was founder, or prominent supporter of the Standish Hall branch of these guards. He was a strong Puritan and apparently hot-headed for he was cited in 1632 by a bench of Anglican Bishops to the hall of Lord de Birlingham to take an oath to keep his Puritan teachings within his own family and home. He was unwilling to do this and was heavily fined by the cclesisstical court. He gave notice with his brother Ezekiel, likewise cited, that he would leave England for good. Some time late, Lord de Bradford of Castle Bromwich near Birmingham, England, who was interested in Nathaniel because of his gallant service in the Warwich Guards, ordered remittance of the fines levied against Nathaniel and Ezekial and severely censured the Warwickshire Episcopal Court for its arbituary procedure. A Grand Jury thereupon caused the British Government of Charles I to grant lands in New England to the brothers Nathaniel and Ezekial, now freemen. It is said that their Royal Grants were made in 1642 in the township of Roxbury, Suffolk County,
Massachusetts. Nathaniel came to Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts in 1633 and became a member of the First Church in Boston that year. He brought three of his sons with him but apparently was a widower since no wife joined the church with him.
Nathaniel was called "a mathematician" and was employed as a surveyor, supposedly having been sent by the King to survey the line between Massachusetts and Connecticut, employed, per Colonial Records Volume 1, Page 237, to run the line, in 1638, between Plymouth Colony and Massachusetts Bay Colony and also the line
between Massachusetts Bay and Connecticut. Afterwards he was sent to survey land north of the Merrimack, and the boundary between Charlestown and Lynn. He had sons John and Robert, born in England allowed to have lots in Boston 1637. Nathaniel Woodward recieved (28) acres when allotments were made at Muddy River (Brookline, Suffolk County, Massachusetts) on January 08, 1637. He was elected freeman on April 17, 1637. On July 18, 1661 Nathaniel Woodward, carpenter, and his 2nd wife Margaret sold to John Marion of Boston, Massachusetts, shoemaker, their dwelling house with land and orchard situated on the road leading to Roxbury, Massachusetts. By that time he had sold all his real estate in Boston, Massachusetts and was probably over (70) years old. He may have moved to Taunton, Massachusetts where his son Nathaniel Jr. was living, or he may have gone back to England where he may have had other children still living. Nathaniel Woodward left no will and no administration was taken on his estate. Nothing is found of him later than the deed in 1661. His property is mentioned as late as 1670, but in no record is he indicated to be deceased.

Nathaniel Woodward b. about 1590 - Warwickshire (County, WAR)
There is a lot of conflicting information on this Nathaniel Woodward and his family. He may have been from Lincolnshire or Wiltshire, England. He came to Boston prior to 1633, when he joined the First Church as a member. He was trained as a carpenter (builder) but the Colony used him as a surveyor on many occassions. He led the crew that laid the border between Mass. Bay Colony and Plymouth Colony, the later between Mass Bay and Connecticut. He was admitted as a freeman (to Boston) on 17 April 1637. The last reference to him is to be found in 1661, but the last reference to his property in 1670, but he is never referred to as "the late Nathaniel Woodward". He may have gone to Taunton, where he and his son had property, or even back to
England. He was by then at least 71 years of age. Named in the Journal of American Genealogy, it said that he came from Warwickshire, where his family held positions in the Magistry and the Courte Elite of the county. It said that a Nathaniel and a Samuel were cited by a Bishops bench in 1630 to go to the hall of the Lord de Bermingham to take an oath that they would not preach their Puritan outside their home. They
instead left with two yeoman, Henry Saterlee and Richard Sumner to Whitehaven, to take passage to Boston.
It also said that papers exist in the Archives at Aston Hall that prove this Woodward line (lineal decendents of Edgebaston, Birmingham Woodward line) is "closely related" to the main Shoevington Manor and Standish Manor, Lancastershire. These papers were deposited there, (Aston Hall) in 1840, and were a sworn copy of another set that were in the Borough Library at Birmingham, Warwickshire. A letter was found at Castle
Browmich Hall to Lord de Bradford written by Nathan Woodward in 1644, bearing the post mark of Roxboro, Massachusetts. (Roxbury, Mass).

From HISTORY OF THE TOWN OF LANCASTER by Rev.Abijah P Marvin
On the 26 of Oct 1708 Mr Thomas Sayer, his son Elias Sawyer and John Biglow were captured and taken to Canada. It appears that Sawyer was a very brave man as well as a good mechanic.When the party reached Montreal, Sawyer offered to put up a mill on the river on condition that the French Government would obtain a releae of all the captives. There was no problem with the release of Elias and Biglow but the Indians demanded the death of Thomas Sawyer.The Indians released Sawyer as he was already tied to a stake for lingering torture. A Frier appeaared and said that he held the keys to purgatory and if Sawyer was not released he would open the gate and thrust the Indians through. The Indians released him and Bigalow. Elias Sawyer stayed and finished the mill before going home.
