5801 Stephen R. Eckert, 16, of Bank Street in Dansville died Saturday (June
20, 1987) as a result of a vehicle-pedestrian accident on Route 63 in
the Town of Sparta.
A son of Richard and Barbara Palmer Eckert of Dansville, he was born
here on Oct. 6, 1970. He was a junior at Dansville High School and was
enrolled in Conservation Department courses at the Charles G. May
Occupational Center at Mt. Morris. He was employed at McDonald 
Eckert, Stephen Richard (I3300)
5802 Stephen Tracy arrived in the Plymouth Colony just three years after the Mayflower, in 1623, aboard the "Anne". He is likely the Stephen Trace baptized 28 December 1596 at Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England, son of Stephen and Agnes/Anne (Erdley) Tracy.
He was one of the Separatists who had migrated to Holland to escape the persecution of the Puritans. It was there that he married his wife, Tryphosa Lee, on January 2, 1621. This is how their marriage record reads:

Leiden, Netherlands, January 2, 1621: "Steven Treas, sayworker, bachelor from England, accompanied by Anthony Clements his acquaintance, to Tryfoce Le, spinster, also from England, accompanied by Rose Jennings, her acquaintance."

They had their first child, Sarah, who was to become the next in my direct line, in Leiden, Holland in probably late 1621 or in 1622. Tryphosa then became pregnant again. At this juncture, the young couple makes a decision that must have been very difficult to make. Stephen is to come to Plymouth by himself (although he may have brought Sarah with him) leaving the pregnant Tryphosa to have her baby without him and come later.
Stephen arrived in the Plymouth Colony on July 10, 1623 and was given three acres of land when the land first was first available for private ownership. This means that two other people should have been with him, as the deal was an acre per person. The identity of those two people is unknown, but one might have been Sarah.

At any rate, Tryphosa, Jane (the second child), and possibly Sarah, if she didn't arrive with her dad, followed in 1625 on the "Jacob."

He settled in Duxbury, a settlement near Plymouth. Later, Ralph Partridge and George Partridge, other ancestors of mine, were to become his neighbors.

He is included in the records of the Plymouth colony as: Freeman: In "1633" Plymouth list of freemen, before those admitted on 1 January 1632/33; in list of freemen of 7 March 1636/7. In Duxbury section of 1639 Plymouth Colony list of freemen (with his name lined through).

Offices he held were:

Duxbury representative on committee to lay out highways, 1 Oct 1634
Plymouth colony committee to assess taxes, 3 March 1634/5, 1 March 1635/6
Coroner's jury, 2 March 1635/6
Duxbury representative to committee on the "nearer uniting of Plymouth & those on Duxburrough side," 14 March 1635/6
grand jury, 7 March 1636/7, 2 June 1640
committee to apportion hay grounds, 20 March 1636/7
Duxbury constable, 5 March 1638/9, 4 June 1639
Arbiter, 7 September 1642.
In respect to his name in connection with property records:
In 1623 Plymouth land division, granted three acres as passenger on Anne
In 1627 Plymouth cattle division, "Stephen Tracie, Triphosa Tracie, Sarah Tracie, Rebecka Tracie" were the fifth through eighth names in the tenth company.
Assessed 18 s in Plymouth tax lists of 25 march 1633 and 27 march 1634.
He appears to on the list of purchasers. Permitted to mow "within his own ground", 1 July 1633;
Assigned mowing ground, 14 March 1635/6, 20 March 1636/7, granted eighty acres with some meadow additional, at the North River.
Stephen Tracy returned to England, as early as 1643, but at least by 1654. Stephen Tracy is not included in the 1643 list of men able to bear arms, and is not seen in any later Plymouth Colony record. It should be noted that during this period of time Cromwell was rising to power and King Charles was beheaded. Perhaps this change in climate towards a pro-Puritan government beckoned him. Whatever reason beckoned his return to England, his kids were old enough to fend on their own, and decided to stay in the Colony.
On 20 March 1654/5, while in London, Stephen Tracy "at present of Great Yarmouth in old England" made his will, in the form of a power of attorney to John Winslow, disposing to:

son John "what land and houses I have there in Duxburrow" (along with some cattle)
to "my daughter Ruth Tracy one cow an done two year old mare,"
and "what cattle I have more (Marye's two cows being cast in amongst them) to be equally divided among my five children living in New England," noting that some of his children are married with children, and others are unmarried.
He died after 20 March 1654/5, the date of his will. We don't know for sure if his wife, Tryphosa, died in America or England, but speculate she died before Stephen, as she was not mentioned in his will.
His children, according to the Great Migration Begins, were:

1. Sarah, b Leiden about January, 1623; m Plymouth, November 1638, George Partridge
2. Rebecca, b Plymouth say 1625; m 1645 William Merrick
3. Ruth, b say 1628; living unmarried 1655
4. Mary, b say 1630, living perhaps unmarried 1655
5. John, b say 1632, married about 1661 Mary Prence, daughter of Thomas Prence

Tracy, Stephen (I39384)
5803 Stephen was a carpenter by trade, and came to New England in 1635,
with his family, settling in Charlestown,MA. He was a freeman 07 Sep
1638. Charlestown records state that Stephen Fosdick was fined twenty
pounds for reading anabaptist books and was excommunicated 07 May
1643. It is noted that his neighbors were sill friends. He died
twenty-one years later in Malden,MA. 
Fosdick, Stephen (I622)
5804 Steuben County history names Eleanor as Eleanor Dow, born Tompkins Co.,NY. Newspaper marriage notice of Eleanor Dow and Joel Russell at Tompkins Co. Clerks office shows Eleanor "of Hector". The only Dow from that area for decades was one Hon. John Dow. John Dow stated in a autobiography that he married twice and had two children, both from his first wife. The children were Polly who married John Dunham and Lucy who married Greeley Davis. The mother of these two daughters would have been to old to be the mother of Eleanor. County histories state Roswell Shephard of Reading Center, married one of John Dow's daughters and resided in Reading Center. The daughter couldn't have been John's natural daughter, but an adopted daughter from his second wife Temperance Leek, who is shown as living in Hector in the 1820 census. In the 1865 census she is living with her son-in-law Roswell Shephard and daughter Anna Maria. The census indicates she had a total of 5(five) children. In Anna Maria Shephard's death cert., her parents are listed as Daniel Leek and Temperance Corwith. Back to Eleanor, as her name is given as Eleanor Dow, much like her "sister" Anna Maria Dow, it is extremely possible that Eleanor Dow is in fact Eleanor Leek, daughter of Daniel and Temperance Leek. There is no other evidence that shows otherwise. One additional note, in the 1855 Census, Eleanor is shown as being born in New Jersey, versus Tompkins Co.,NY as stated by the history. I would have to beleive the Census record more because she was most likely present when the census taker came around. The history was written alomst thirty years after her death and was given to the author by Joel Russell, who would believe she was born in Tompkins Co., because that is where she was from when he met her. Leek, Eleanor (I136)

5823 Submitted to Mrs Lou Chauncey Wheeler, Historian, Coldwater Chapter of
D.A.R. by M. Belle Huff Schmedlen (3rd child by 2nd wife of Henry
Henry Huff resided in New York for a few years prior to moving to
Michigan in 1834. He and his brother and family made the trip in a
covered wagon. The wagon became home until they could fell trees to
build a log house.
In 1840, Henry Huff married Mariah Franklin. Mariah died in 1847
leaving one daughter, Sarah.
In 1851, Henry Huff married Mary Briggs of Honeoye, New York. They
had three daughters; Fannie, Eva and Mary Belle.
Henry Huff bought two hundred and forty acres of land in Hillsdale
County, Michigan. He, with the help of one hired man, cleared the
land with an ox team. They often averaged two acres per day.
Huff rapidly acquired a fortune, by hard but ingenious labor. He
improved his stock by importing cattle from his native state, New
Jersey, and sheep from Vermont. He was one of the first importers in
Michigan and paid as high as $3,000 for one sheep. His stock was on
exhibition at fairs and received their merited first premiums.
Huff also gave great care to the raising of 1" bees and was a large
honey dealer. He was one of the men who established the Hillsdale
County Fair.
Henry Huff was also one of the founders of Hillsdale College. He
served the County as Supervisor for a period of nine years and served
in the Michigan State Legislature two terms as Senator. His portrait
still hangs in the Hillsdale County Court House.
Henry Huff was one of a few successful men who were willing to share
the honor of their prosperity equally with his wife. In describing
Mary Briggs Huff, it had been said; "A more thorough lady, and one
more willing to help and encourage her husband, and more ready to
assist the poor, is seldom found in any community."
Mr. and Mrs. Huff were members of the Methodist Church. They both
sang in the choir for many years.
Henry Huff died at the age of fifty-nine, honored and beloved by all
who knew him. His untimely death was caused from the effects of an
injury received when his team of spirited horses ran away at the
Hillsdale County Fair.

5835 Susan wrote her Will on 18 April 1864 and states the following regarding her personal property. "I give and devise to my Husband Edmund Hartman his heirs and assigns all that tract or parcel of land situate in the Town of North Dansville and bounded as follows: on east by Main Street, on the North by the Dutch Lutheran church lot; on the west by lot of Stephen Brown and on the south in part by Franklin Street and in part by lot of Mrs. Brown and being the same premises purchased by me of Aaron Brown and wife, together with all the hereditaments and appurtenances thereunto belonging or in any wise appertaining: To have and hold the premises above described to my husband Edmund Hartman his heirs and assigns forever."

An article in the same paper as her obituary(24Apr1873) states of "A Remarkable Case" in which Mrs. Edmund Hartman suffered close to ten years with dropsy and tumor. "Mrs. Hartman was a great sufferer during ten painful years, but a patient one, as became her sterling Christian character. She was an earnest, consistent member of the English Lutheran church from a child of twelve years, and her life of devotion to Christian principles causes many to bless her memory."

Fairbank-Burt Wedding
A very pretty wedding took place at 8 o'clock Wednesday evening at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur T. Burt in Dewitt, when their daughter,
Miss Ethel Burt, became the bride of Edmund Roy Fairbank. The
ceremony was performed by the Rev. M. M. Williams of this city. The
house was beautifully decorated, a color scheme of green and white
being carried out. Quantities of feathery white chrysanthemums and
Southern smilax were used in the decorations and formed a canopy for
the wedding party, palms being used for the background. Preceding the
ceremony George Hayward sang "Oh, Promise Me." The Lohengrin wedding
march and "The Flower Song" were rendered by Mrs. George Hayward
during the ceremony. Miss Burt was attended by Miss Clara Fairbank as
maid of honor and Miss Marian Burt as bridesmaid. Harry Burt acted as
Mr. Fairbank's best man and the ushers were Ray and Guy Fairbank and
Fred Burt. The bride wore a beautiful gown of ivory satin and
Georgette crepe with opalescent trimming and the tulle veil fastened
with a wreath of orange blossoms fell to the length of the skirt. Her
bouquet was a shower of brideroses. The maid of honor was gowned in
chiffon over pink silk with pink satin trimmings and carried an arm
bouquet of pink Killareny roses, and the bridesmaid wore a gown of
pink silk and carried pink chrysanthemums. After the informal
reception following the ceremony a wedding supper was served. The
bride's table was placed in the dining room and was centered with
brideroses. Upon their return from a short wedding journey Mr. and
Mrs. Fairbank will live in Dewitt.

5845 Tabitha's madain name has been written as Hastings, however in a baptismal record of her grandson Ezekiel John Bardwell in Arkansas it lists grandparents as Peres Bardwell and Tabitha Dickinson of MA. "I have not found the parents of Tabitha Dickinson or found confirmation that our interpretation of her maiden name as Dickinson found in Ezekiel Bardwell's baptismal record is correct. However, I did search the Genealogies of Hadley Families, Embracing the Early Settlers of the Towns of Hatfield, South Hadley, Amherst and Granby (Compiled by Lucius M. Boltwood Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1979)which gives a fairly good listing of Nathaniel Dickinson's descendants. There is no Tabitha listed in this publication although she could have been overlooked. I went through this listing and picked out the male descendants of Nathaniel Dickinson that were old enough to be Tabitha's father or grandfather who were indicated as having survived childhood and for whom there was no further information available. From this the most attractive prospect as a father of Tabitha is the following:
Joel Dickinson, son Nathaniel Dickinson (1670-1745) and Hannah White (1679-1756), born 23 March 1715/16 in Hatfield, Hampshire County, MA. This is the extent of the information in the History of Hatfield, but on-line sources indicate Joel married Rachel Coombs/Combs on November 3, 1738. She was born 6 September 1714 in Springfield, Hampden County, MA. Her father was John Coombs/Combs of Northampton, MA. She is said to have died 3 April 1787 in Conway, Franklin County, MA. According to one source, Joel "Removed to Whately about 1751 with a family of children and settled at the junction of the Mother George road with Chestnut Plain Street, directly East of the Stockade monument, and it was his house and about three-fourths of an acre of his land that was enclosed by the stockade where those living in that section could fly for safety. The family removed to Conway before 1771, perhaps as soon as 1767, and then later to Phelps, N.Y., where he died. Was Capt. Elijah William's company, expedition to Canada, 1755 and 1756." "early as 1750. at the "straits" (so called) by Joseph Belding, Sergt. John Wait, Elisha Smith. David Graves and Joseph Scott. Here they erected the first dwelling in the territory. A few years afterwards, houses were built on "Chestnut Plain Street" by Lieut. Ebenezer Bardwell, Thomas Crafts and Deacon Joel Dickinson, which were the first buildings in the central part of the town. " I have seen no authoritative listing of the children of Joel Dickinson, but considering he lived at Whatley when Perez Bardwell did, moved to Conway, where Perez Bardwell was living in 1790, is said to have died in Phelps, New York where Perez is also said to have died, and Perez and Tabitha had a son named Joel, perhaps Joel Dickinson is worth further research to eliminate or confirm him as a prospect as father of Tabitha Dickinson.

money; afterward went into the drug and notion business with E. R.
SMITH; shortly after went on the road again in the notion business,
which he continued about four years successfully; through industry
laid up about $6,000, and went into the cigar and confectionery
business in Beloit; in 1877, went on to the old GEER farm of 300
acres; this is one of the best farms in the town; from the ground near
