5851 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.

5861 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.

5887 The area of the Palatinate where the Anabaptist Oberholtzers lived is today known as the Kraichgau. This region was depopulated during the Thirty Years War. The Oberholtzers and other foreign families were needed in the area by landlords who sought to rebuild their manors and estates. In exchange, they were given some religious toleration. Consequently, the majority of the Anabaptists emigrated from Zurich, whose officials had resorted to execution, imprisonment, confiscation of property, and any other means of cruelty, in hopes of banishing them.

The Geneallandearchiv, Karlsruhe, gives this quote from the seventeenth century: "A number of the Wiedertauffer wish to settle here, which people practice their religious exercises partly in the forest, partly in their houses, and some have their land on the church support land. Many adapt well, among them is Marx Oberholtzer, who announced that he plans to marry his brother's servant, but does not intend to have his marriage announced publicly."

Marx Oberholtzer was among a group of 53 Anabaptists meeting for worship near Sinsheim on the evening of March 2, 1661. While they were singing, the meeting was abruptly ended by German authorities. Their names were taken, which included other familiar Pennsylvania names such as Groff, Hess, Landis, Meyer and Miller. They were to report for punishment on March 29th. Appearing on that date, they stated that they had come into the country from Switzerland in 1655 and had been meeting for worship secretly in the forests near Steinsfurt. The government fined them but they continued to meet. In 1662, Elector Karl Ludwig ordered that the Mennonists should no longer be forbidden to meet, but that every participant must pay a tax. Warfare, economic difficulties and religious suppression would later entice members of the Oberholtzer family to America. The Anabaptists in the Palatinate became known as Mennonists, for a group of Holland Anabaptists who took the name from an early leader, Menno Simons. 
Oberholtzer, Marcus (I38974)
5888 The article from which the following statement is compiled was written by Miss Caroline Whiting, of Norwood, Mass., from information that she obtained from Joel Talbot, Esq., of Stoughton, and the Misses Anna and Catherine Talbot, of Norwood, and printed in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register for April, 1855.

"Peter Talbot was born in Lancashire, England, and while a youth, at a boarding school in Edinburgh, he, with two other of his fellow students, were seized one day, while out in a boat, by a press-gang and taken on board a man of war, bound for the American coast. When near Rhode Island, he escaped from the vessel in the night, and by swimming reached the main land in safety, leaving on board his more timid companions, who had tried to dissuade him from so rash an undertaking. From his place of landing, he travelled northerly, and after a journey of some days, arrived in Dorchester, where he considered himself safe from pursuit. Here by industry and frugality he secured the means to return home, never intending to settle in New England. He paid his passage and took his effects on board, himself staying on shore during a storm, which detained the vessel from sailing. The weather having cleared, the vessel sailed early in the morning, leaving him behind, but taking his effects, and he losing his hard earned passage money.

He bore his misfortune with courage, and soon after married. Again he made preparations to return to England, this time taking a wife with him, but strange though it may seem, from the same cause as before, the vessel sailed without them, again depriving him of all his property. Hearing afterward that the vessel with all on board was lost, he concluded that it was intended that he should remain in New England, and made no further attempt to return home.

Some years after his mariage he removed to Chelmsford, Mass. During his residence in Chelmsford, while he and hs eldest son were absent, the Indians came to his home, seized his wife, and carried her away with them, first killing her infant child. the Indians were pursued by the town's people, and Mrs. Talbot was soon rescued and returned to her home. Her children, Sarah and George, and probably Elizabeth, were out of doors together, when the Indians appeared and safely hid themselves in a ledge of rocks, not far away from the house.

The eldest son was killed while fighting the Indians, either at this time or at a later period. After these disasters, the family returned to Dorchester and made it their future home. It is supposed that he died about 1704; his widow, surviving him, lived with her son George, in that part of Dorchester now Stoughton, probably at the original homestead. Sarah, his daughter, married, but to whom it is not known, and Elizabeth Talbot, who was probably another daughter, married Eleazer Puffer."

The genealogical part of the article is found, after careful investigations, not to be absolutely correct, and has not been copied.

The only events relating to Peter Talbot, contained in the family record of his son George, and thus preserved, are, that he was "born in Lancashire old England" and that he "died about 1704." This is from my father's copy; but happily there are other sources of information, from which we are able to follow him during a great part of his life, after he settled in Dorchester. How early he arrived in this town is not known, but the first date we have is 1675, when he is found on the Dorchester tax list. He was in the military service before October 14, 1677, for on that date his military account is made up by the province treasurer, showing the amount due him to be 18 pounds, 16 shillings, 08. In 1679 he removed to Milton, where he remained until 1684, if not later, he being taxed there in a rate made in January of that year. December 14, 1686, he was one of fifty persons who bought a large tract of land in that part of Chelmsford which has since become the city of Lowell. Two years later he sold his undivided interest in this land, but retained a home lot that had been set off to him. He remained in Chelmsford until after March 16, 1691-92, for at that date he was on the rolls of the west regiment of Middlesex; but soon after, returned to Milton, where he was taxed in 1693 and 1694.

The latest date that has been found relating to him, is May 4, 1704, when with his wife Hannah, calling themselves of Boston, they sold six acres of land in Chelmsford. His son George was a witness to the deed. It is probably a hundred years since Richard Talbot made this entry in his family record, relating to his great-grandfather, "died about 1704," and it was his belief, that about that time he undertook to make a visit to England, and not being heard from afterward, was supposed to have been lost at sea, or to have died soon after his arrival there. At any rate no positive evidence has been found as to his decease.

The sale of land in Chelmsford in the early part of 1704, a circumstance of which those who fix the time of his death would not be likely to have had any knowledge, adds to the probability that the date of his voyage to England, if he made one, is correct.

Peter Talbot was married to his first wife, Mary WADEL, by Gov. Dudley, in Dorchester, January 12, 1677-8. With much time and research Mary Wadel has been completely identified, but the date of her birth, the names of her parents, and their residence has not been found. Mary GOOLE married, in Chelmsford, December 25, 1666, John WADEL, whose alias was WATTEL. He died before June 6, 1676, that being the date when the inventory of his estate was taken. In this inventory the appraisers returned "one bed and furniture to it, and one cow," prized at Dorchester, and valued at five pounds. His whole estate was valued at 38 pounds, 9 shillings, 6. It seems to be clear that at this date, his widow, for some reason, was living in Dorchester. He left three children who lived to grow up and marry. Their names were William, Mary, and Rose, and they, in 1710, made sale of their father's real estate in Chelmsford. At this date, 1710, Mary was living in Woburn, Mass., Rose in Preston, Conn., and William in Lebanon, Conn., which at the same time was the home of Dorothy Talbot, wife of James Cutting, daughter of Peter and Mary (Wadel) Talbot. Mr. Cutting in his will, made in 1746, appoints William Wattel, his friend, one of his executors. These facts, I think, are conclusive, that the first wife of Peter Talbot was the widow of John Wadel, and they also make doubtful the story that they made arrangements to return to England soon after their marriage, as the number of their family would seem to be a hindrance to such a procedure.

Mrs. Talbot died in Chelmsford, August 29, 1687, and on the same day John Fisk and Susanna, widow of George Byam, also died. Three deaths in one day, out of population so small as was that of Chelmsford when these deaths took place, must have been exceptionable; but it is not found that they were from other than natural causes, and the Indian raid and massacre as stated in the "tradition," has not been found to be related to these deaths. Peter Talbot married, December 29, 1687, for his second wife, Hannah Clarke, of Concord, widow of William Frizzell, to whom she was married November 28, 1667, and whose death occurred in Concord, January 25, 1684-5. Elizabeth Frizzell, their daughter, undoubtedly lived with her mother, as she was admitted to the Milton Church, August 11, 1700. No attempt has been made to follow the history of the other children of Frizzell. The ages of both these wives, judging by the dates of their first marriages, would indicate that the second husband, Peter Talbot, had been some time in this country before his marriage, or that he was older, when he arrived, than the "Tradition," would make him. The date of his death has been previously considered, but nothing has been found to fix that of his second wife.

5890 The baptism record for Gershom was found in the Register at the village of Eccles, near Banham, Norfolk, England. The record reads as follows: "Gersham Wheelocke filius Radolphi Wheelocke baptisatus fuit 3 die Jan:1632/33". (Source: "Mr. Wheelock's Cure", by Christopher Gleason Clark, published in the July 1998 issue of New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol 152.) William S. Tilden, "History of Medfield, Massachusetts, 1650-1886", 1886, writes the following about Gershom: "Gershom was in the list for Mr. Wilson's rate in 1657 [1], and probably came of age about that time. He married Hannah Stodder, daughter of John of Hingham, in 1658. In 1663, he had liberty from the town to cut "200 sedar plank" in the common swamp. His house stood on the Harbor Island road, a short distance south-west of the present residence of Charles Hamant. He rung the bell and swept the meeting-house in 1674, for which the town paid him 2 pounds, 15 shillings. The next year, he assisted in thatching the meeting-house. His house was burned by the Indians in 1676, and it appears to have been rebuilt on the same spot [2]. He died in 1684, and in 1690 his heirs sold the homestead to Joseph Plimpton."

5891 The book, "The Settlers of the Beekman Patent," vol.2, by Frank J. Doherty, 1993, mentions several Allen families from the Pawling area of Dutchess County, as well as the Chase family. The George Allen Jr. mentioned in the book is believed to be the father of George H., as this George Allen Jr. had a brother Weston, named after their mother's mother, Patience Weston. It's also possible that George H. is the son of Weston, but the book mentions some of his children, so I would tend to believe that George H. is a son of George Jr. that the author knows little about. Never-the-less I am certain George H. Allen, named above, is the grandson of George and Mary(daughter of John and Patience[Weston] Briggs) Allen, orginally of Dartmouth,MA left after 1736 and by February 1744 were living in Pawling,Dutchess Co.,NY. They had at least four children; Weston(b.1732), Anne(b.1734), Elizabeth(b.1736), and George(b.????). This Allen family is a descendants of George Allen(1568-1648) and his wife Catherine, who came from Weymouth,England to Boston,MA arriving 06May1635 and later settling in Sandwich,MA.

  • George H. Allen left Dutchess County about 1792 and moved to Northumberland, Saratoga Co., NY. He removed to Marcellas, Onondaga Co., NY in 1801. His eldest daughter, Bestey is said to have remained in Saratoga County where she had gotten married(she is NOT the Betsey Allen who married Selby Caulkins, of Saratoga County). George's son John and Weston remained in the Onondaga County area, Weston settling in Lysander. The rest of the Allen's eventually all moved to Allegany County between 1823 and 1824/5. George's son Dewitt Clinton is from his second wife Elizabeth Wightman.

  • Land record(Book ZZ, page 336) for his wife Betsey shows that they were still 'of Skaneatles,NY' as of Jun 1833.
