(copied exactly as written)
"Camp Valley Forge, 27th Apr 1778
Dear Wife:
A sense of my conjugal obligation and tender afection for you and the children whom God hath given us induces me to write at this time and I doubt not you have earnest desire to hear from me as you have frequently manifested. I have been very sick and nigh to Death for a long time, but God of his infinite mercy has lenthened out my life and so far restored my helth that I have returned to the Camp under circumstances of comfort and am able to attend the exercises of the _____ and am gaining strengh very fast. Hope soon to enjoy a confirmed state of helth, great and maniford have been the favors and Blessings which God of his infinite goodness has bestowed on me who am unworthy of any motive from him, may his name be suitable praised, and all his benefits Remembered by me and all concerned for me: I received your letters my :Majs" Curtis camp, am obligated to you for the care and concerne for me therein manifested.
Rejoiced greatly to hear of your welfare, but am not without the greatest concerne and anxiety for you and the Children. I know the times are difficult and I consider the care upon you to be very great under your particular circumstance--the duty of parents to children is very important and as it is necessarily devolved upon you, I cannot forbare, nor do I think it inconsistent with my Duty to express my concerne for them and earnest desire that they may be well instructed in the ways of virtue and piety, if they are not, Sin lieth at the Dore and we must be answerable for the neglect, and I can do my duty in no other way than by recommending them to your care and the care of a kind and indulgent Providence.
I understand the neighbors are kind and careful for you which I am very glad of, as I think it must of no small comfort to you and greatly softens your cares, be not discouraged but surmount the difficulties with all becoming Patience, and God bless your indeavors and preserve your helth __________.
I intend to come home but now do not expect, this summer--it would be very agreeable and gratifying to me to see you once more and hope I may at the close of another campaign, but that is uncertain. We appoint and God disappoints and it becomes us to prepare for the event of his will with all due submission and that His blessing may ever attend you.
Peace be restored to our land and our hearts prepared for the receipt of so great favors is the desire and prayer of your Loving Husband.
EZEKIEL SANFORD"

6002 The following was written by Drew Burdett - with help from his father - read at his mother's memorial service in Liberty, TX June 7, 2012.
My Mother's parents were both from Fall River Massachusetts, They dated for five years while her Dad put himself through college. In 1967, after college they were married and moved to Rochester, New York where her Dad worked for Kodak. They had a daughter Michelle born in 1968. My mother wrote in a biography for a school paper that before she was born her parents were expecting a boy and had the name Daniel Jeffery picked out - they found out at her birth in 1973 that she was a girl - so they changed the name to Danielle, with no middle name. My mother wrote about many issues in her early life that she carried with her always and struggled with letting go. However, nothing in the past affected her love of being the best mother to me. To me she was the worlds greatest and everyone that saw the two of us together could see that she cared and loved me more than any mother could. My father tells me how happy she was when I was born and how fortunate I was to have such a caring, loving and sensitive mother. When I was in pre-k my mother was the teacher at the catholic school I went to. My mother loved animals, especially her dogs (Ky, Penny, Ty, Tica and especially Skylar). Any dog she saw on the side of the road or abandoned, that didn't have a collar, she would take home, fix them up, and help them find a new home. She always liked cleaning and never liked having a cluttered house. Sometimes I would leave my toys on my dresser and I would come home from school and they would be put away in storage totes. She was always smiling and laughing and loved hearing me tell her jokes. She enjoyed listening to the stories I wrote for school and was always after me about my grades. When we did my homework together she would use a calculator to check my work, I sometimes would surprise her and get the answer before she could on the calculator. My mother loved waterfalls and nature, but just not the mosquitoes. If a mosquito landed on her she would run inside. She also loved birds, especially blue birds, the state bird for New York. If you saw a bird she could tell you what it is. There are so many other things about my mother that everyone should know and I wish she was still here today so I could hear her last words to me once more - “BYE, I LOVE YOU"

6003 The founder and patriarch of the family in North America was Johannes
Verveelen, a brewer from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, who arrived in
New Amsterdam in 1657 with his wife, Anna Jaarsvelt, daughters Anna
and Maria, and his widowed mother, Anna Elkhout. His son, Daniel, had
preceded him here five years earlier. His ancestors were from the
Rhineland, his grandfather and father, the latter a shopkeeper, having
moved to Amsterdam in 1610 to escape the oppression of Calvinists at
Cologne.
With a partner, Isaac de Forest, Johannes founded the Red Lion
Brewery in New Amsterdam on what is now Beaver Street in downtown
Manhattan, New York, two blocks south of Wall Street and east of
Broadway. Subsequently, in 1661, he became one of the five original
land grant recipients and residents of New Haarlem (now Harlem). He
was the proprietor of the first inn in Harlem. He also operated
ferries east across the Harlem River at what is now 125th Street and,
later, across the Spuyten Duyvil Creek to the north (Map). Later he
served as Harlem Constable, Magistrate, and Delegate to the General
Assembly at Albany, New York.

6004 The funeral of John Pestle, who died on July 14, was held from his late home on Friday morning, Rev. J. Scott Ebersole of the Baptist church conducting the funeral services. His death was due to a complication of diseases. A native of England, he came to this country in his boyhood, and had long been a resident of this village. He is survived by four and one son, George Pestle, of Livonia. Mr. Pestle was a member of the A. M. Murray Post, G. A. R., of this village, who attended in a body and supplied the bearers. Burial was made in Woodlawn cemetery in the soldiers plot.

6005 The funeral of Mrs. Ann Stewart, who passed away at her home two miles east of this village, December 19th, 1901, was largely attended from Christ church at Richland, the 22d. Mrs. Stewart had been in poor health since last May, although able to be about the house most of the time until within a few days of her death, She was a great sufferer, her disease being hardening of the liver. Her children tenderly care for her, and all that loving hands could do to relieve her suffering, was done. Last May she went to Chicago to visit her sister, but her health being so poor she soon returned home and gradually failed until the end came. She never made a public profession of religion, but believed, on the Lord Jesus and was ready and willing to go to that land where sickness and death cannot come, Mrs. Stewart's maiden name was Ann Marpole born in Machynlleth Wales, in 1832. When about sixteen years of age she came to America with her oldest brother, Edward Marpole, and lived
with an uncle in Rome for a time, then came to Richland where she married Draper Stewart, in 1850, and there resided
until her death. Nine children are left to mourn her loss; namely, Mrs. Mary B. Wood, Draper H. Stewart, Ethel Stewart, Mrs. Nellie Price, Mrs. Anne Stinson, RiChland; Mrs. Sophia
Yoodre, Dexter; Mrs. F. S, Richards, North Bay; Edward Stewart, New Haven; Lemuel Stewart, Syracuse; and one sister in Chicago and one in Wales. Many beautiful flowers were sent by friends as a last token of love.

6008 The Great Swamp Fight (also known as the Great Swamp Massacre) was a crucial battle fought during King Philip's War between the combined colonial militia in New England and the Narragansett tribe.
On November 2 1675, Josiah Winslow led a combined force of over 1000 colonial militia including about 150 Pequot and Mohegan Indians against the Narragansett tribe living around Narragansett Bay. The Narragansett tribe had not yet been directly involved in the war, but had allegedly sheltered many of King Philip's men, women and children and several of their warriors had reportedly been seen in Indian raiding parties[citation needed]. The colonists distrusted the Narragansett and feared the tribe would join King Phillip's cause come spring, which caused great concern due to the tribe's location. The decision was made to preemptively strike the Narragansett before an assumed uprising. Several abandoned Narragansett Indian villages were found and burned as the militia marched through the cold winter around Narragansett Bay. The tribe had retreated to a large fort in the center of a swamp near Kingston, Rhode Island. The building of such a defensive structure gives credence to the argument that the Narragansett never intended aggressive actions, thus the colonist's preemptive attack may have been unwarranted and overzealous.

Led by an Indian guide, on December 16, 1675 on a bitterly cold storm-filled day, the main Narragansett fort near modern South Kingstown, Rhode Island was found and attacked by the colonial militia from Plymouth Colony, Connecticut Colony and Massachusetts Bay Colony. The massive fort occupying about 5 acres (20,000 m2) of land and was initially occupied by over a thousand Indians was eventually overrun after a fierce fight. The Indian fort was burned, its inhabitants, including women and children, killed or evicted and most of the tribe's winter stores destroyed. It is believed that about 300 Indians were killed (exact figures are unknown) in the fighting. Many of the warriors and their families escaped into the frozen swamp. Facing a winter with little food and shelter, the whole surviving Narragansett tribe was forced out of quasi-neutrality some had tried to maintain in the on-going war and joined the fight alongside Philip. The colonists lost many of their officers in this assault and about 70 of their men were killed and nearly 150 more wounded. The dead and wounded colonial militiamen were evacuated to the settlements on Aquidneck Island in Narragansett Bay where they were buried or cared for by many of the Rhode Island colonists until they could return to their homes.

The Great Swamp Fight was a critical blow to the Narragansett tribe from which they never fully recovered.[1] In April 1676, the Narragansett were completely defeated when the Wampanoag sachem Metacom was shot in the heart by John Alderman, a Native American soldier.

6010 The Harvard graduates' magazine, Volume 28, March 1920 p.504:
Frank Waldo Burdett, a temporary member of '83, died suddenly of cerebral hemorrhage, on Nov. 0. He was stricken while reading a paper in Ihc Harvard Church of Brookline, at the exercises attending the seventyfifth anniversary of its founding, and where he had been a deacon for many years. The son of Horatio Stearns and Mary Melvina (Martin) Burdett, he was born at Boston, Oct. 29, 1859, and prepared for College at the private school of G. W. C. Noble, '58. Leaving Harvard at the end of Freshman year, he entered business, first with the clothing firm of Burdett, Young & Ingalls, of Boston, and next as a partner of W. A. & P. \V. Burdett, wholesale paper warehousemen. In 1887 he entered the publishing house of Silver, Rogers & Co., of Boston, the firm name changing to Silver, Burdett & Co. with which he was identified for thirty years. The business had grown into one of the largest school book and college text-book publishing houses in the country, with branch offices in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Dallas and in London, England. He was a lifelong resident of Brookline, a member of the Harvard Musical Association and the Commonwealth Golf Club. He was married, Oct. 19, 1887, to Carrie Starr Dana, who died July 12, 1895, leaving three children: Dana Stearns, now in the office of the Boston & Albany R.R.; Carolyn Starr, Vassar, "15; and Alice Martin, who survive their father. Although Burdett was with us only for a year, he always felt the Class ties very strongly, and was a welcome figure at all '83 gatherings, where his cordial, frank and sympathetic nature made him a favorite. ? Thirty-one men assembled at the Harvard Club, on Jan. 17, for our Class Lunch, and on entering the room, found each table decorated with a beautiful bunch of orchids from the Beverly greenhouses of A. C. Burrage. There was no formal speaking, but those present listened delightedly to an hour's talk by C. P. Perin, who gave a vivid and detailed account of his work in India, on behalf of the British Government, by furnishing the supplies of iron and steel that were largely responsible for the winning of the Mesopotamian campaign.

6011 The Historical Gazetteer of Steuben County, New York, by Millard F.
Roberts listed Charles Fremont as living at Purdy Creek and working
as a farm laborer.
The Steuben County Historian Census Listing shows Charles F. Hendee
first in 1860. This date for his birth would fit with the dates of
his siblings.Birth date may have been February 26, 1856. Uncle
Fremont was married twice but had no children. I vaguely remember him
from a visit to N.Y. when I was 8. I recall him as a very kindly,
soft-spoken gentleman.(Beverly Mills [pbmills@filertel.com]

6012 The History of Needham would be Incomplete without some reference to Dr. Vesta Delphlne Miller, who was devoted to many good causes, particularly to that of Temperance. For more than thirty years she practiced medicine, and was skilful, faithful and self-sacrificing, often in emergencies acting as nurse for many hours at a time, regardlessof her own health. Many families depended upon her as their physician and friend, and her comparatively sudden death on February 23, 1908, caused sorrow in numerous homes. Her funeral was on the afternoon of the 25th, and was largely attended, the Rev. Charles E. Sawtelle and the Rev. Robert L. Webb officiating. Mrs. Miller brought comfort and hope not only to many, who recovered from illness, but to others who could not, and no one was more sincerely esteemed than she was. She received the degree of M.D. from the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Boston, but had previously studied at the New England Female Medical College, 1865, and at the Cincinnati Medical College. Subsequent to obtaining her degree she attended the New York Post-Graduate Medical School. Freeman, Doctor Vesta Delphine (I12730)
 
6013 The Hon. A.B. Haynes died suddenly and unexpectedly at his place eight miles from Memphis at an early hour this morning. He had an attack of malarial fever about 10 days ago, but was able to sit up until yesterday morning. At 6 o'clock last evening, he was suddenly taken worse and at 6 this morning he was deceased. A native of Giles County, he came to Shelby county when a young man to practice law but married Miss Buntyn, daughter of Geraldia (sic) Buntyn, soon afterward and turned his attention to farming at which he was highly successful. A member of the Baptist Church, he was an upright and respected citizen, greatly esteemed by neighbors and the community at large. He was elected to the lower house of the legislature on the Democratic ticket in 1872 and was elected to the Senate in 1874, making both times an efficient and influential member. Since then, he has not taken part in politics but has been active in promoting the interests of the Granges. For some time, he has been master of the State Grange. He died at the age of about 46. The funeral will be tomorrow at Elmwood Cemetery. Haynes, Honorable Amos Bell (I45373)
 
6014 The Justus Stewart, Jr. was Chester Stewart Jr. in the 1850 census of Almond with wife Adeline. Edward Stewart named in Almond records for Civil War service names his father as "Justis Stewart" This same Edward is shown in cemetery records as Charles E. Stewart(died 1864 age 19 yrs) and 1850 census as Charles E. Stewart (1855 living with the Abram Wyant family as an apprentice).

  • Justus and Adeline's son, Ira, is found in the 1855 census in Scio, adopted by the Furnald family. So it appears Justus and Adeline may have died before 1855. I don't find any probate record or any record of them after the 1850 census. Nor do I find any record of their other younger children; either they too died or they were adopted and names changed.

    6015 The Land Patent Books of Virginia, Book 1, page 23, shows Robert Bennettgranted 700 acres...for transportation of 14 persons, including JamesLeonard, June 26, 1635. One theory is that James came first to Virginia,then to Maryland, then to Providence, then to Lynn. Source: The LeonardDictionary, Volume III (manuscript). Duplicate record August 18, 1637.Another source is Charles Edward Banks' "Topographical Dictionary of 2885English Emigrants to New England 1620-1650," Baltimore, GenealogicalPublishing Co., 1963, 3rd edition, p. 148, citing Various References:NEGR 5/104. Apparently, employees and recruits of John Winthrop weresometimes not listed as passengers, since they were not paying passengerson those particular vessels crossing the Atlantic.

    He arrived before 1650 from Pontypool, Wales, although some sources sayhe first came to Providence, RI, in 1645. He was paid for bringing hisgoods from Providence by the Lynn/Saugus Ironworks in 1651. On January10, 1645/6 in Providence, 25 acres of land were granted to a number ofinhabitants, including James Leonard, but his name had been crossed out.He was the Ironmaster of Taunton, having first participated developmentof the iron works at Braintree and Saugus.

    But there appear to have been Leonards in the Pontypool area since theearly 1600's. A Thomas Leonard mentioned in deed of July 29, 1633,bordering lands of John Powell, John Gerbon, and Phillip Morgan inTrevethin (Parish near Pontypool, with a bridge near swamp and pool therein 1490 -- pool later became forge pond). An ironworks was in operationbefore 1634, and there's a record of a complaint against John Wylde forfailure to collect monies from it, instead selling iron at a discount tohis friends. Thomas Morgan was recorded as selling charcoal to it in1640. The works were apparently owned by the Hanburys, probably Richardb. August 1618. Thomas, son of Jacob Leonard, was baptized January 9,1699; William, son of Jacob Leonard, was baptized July 23, 1696;Gwenllian, wife of Thomas Leonard, buried March 15, 1656; Mary Leonardmarried Alexander Lewis January 26, 1656; a son of Philip Leonard wasborn October 27, 1656. Sarah, daughter of James Leonard, baptizedSeptember 1, 1705; Ann, daughter of James Leonard, baptized March 13,1702. Local records include a mention of a Thomas Leonard in 1790, aJohn and Mary Leonard who died at age 84 in 1774. These indicate therewere Leonards and ironmaking in the Pontypool area after James and Thomasleft. These Leonards had names identical to or similar to those whoemigrated to America. There was even a Theophilus Leonard, iron refiner,who died March 31, 1900 in nearby Pontnewydd, Wales, perhaps just acoincidence. (Source: old documents at the Monmouthshire County recordsoffice near Pontypool, October 2003. A researcher with more time couldprobably find some interesting material here.) Elisha Clark Leonard paid5 pounds to a clergyman in Pontypool to check the records for James andHenry, but he reportedly found nothing. GML reported that laterresearchers found nothing about them either. So the theory is that Jamesand Henry were not in Pontypool very long.

    Probably James and his young family (and his older brother Henry) werealso ironworkers in the Bilston, Staffordshire (Cheshire?), area prior totheir immigration. Bilston became a center of the "Black Country" ironindustry. George Marston Leonard includes a note on one of his tablesthat "James, son of Thomas, son of Henry of Billston, Staffordshire..."from McKenzie, Colonial Families, Vol. IV. Apparently, the Leonards lefta claim to the ownership of some heavily mortgaged ironworks there,moving on as the mining districts became less productive. Years later(1821?) an ironworker in Bilston by the name of James Leonard sent aletter to James Leonard, ironworker in or near Taunton, MA stating thatthe extensive iron works there in Bilston belonged to the Leonards. TheLeonards in Taunton decided not to undertake the expense of an extendedsuit to regain the works. The Leonards may also have been involved insome of the ironworks in Somersetshire, England, and Pontypool,Monmouthshire, Wales, as well.

    James Leonard was but a short time at the Saugus Ironworks and atBraintree for a longer time. At sale of the Braintree works, he became apartner. With the invitation from Taunton, he moved there, erected aforge and furnace, and continued as masterworkman, a position he held forthe rest of his life. ECL believes Oliver Purchase was the one whoinduced Henry and James along with Ralph Russell to come to Taunton. Heconveyed the two hearths at Taunton to his sons, Thomas and James, andthey in turn conveyed them to their sons. He purchased a lot on MillRiver and erected a one-hearth forge, which he called Whittinton Forge.His son Joseph was the masterworkman at Whittinton Forge. His two othersons, Benjamin and Uriah, were also trained as "bloomers." About 1682James Leonard built a house for himself a short distance from the Taunton(Raynham) Ironworks on the north side of the road. It was a gambled roofhouse two stories in front and running back to one story in the rear.When he died in 1691, he left an estate valued at 500 pounds, a veryrespectable sum in those days (from Elisha Clark Leonard and GeorgeMarston Leonard's unpublished manuscript).

    More about the involvement of James and Henry Leonard in early ironworksin Massachusetts and New Jersey can be found in Bill Barton's articles,"The Establishment of the Iron Industry in America," "Pre-AmericanAncestry of Our Leonard Ironworkers," and "Leonard Siblings Henry, James,Philip, Sarah, and Thomas in America and Some of Their Descendants,",

    James Leonard was allowed to keep an "ordinary" (bar) in Taunton. Thelicense was revoked in 1664/5, but later conveyed to his son, Thomas.

    James Leonard frequently entertained Massasoit and King Philip, whojourneyed from Mt. Hope to the hunting grounds at Fowling Pond. FowlingPond is in Raynham, was one mile north of the Ancient Iron Works onpresent-day King Philip's Street near the end of Mill Street. FowlingPond was said to be two miles long and three-quarters of a mile wide inKing Philip's time, but today has disappeared. James repaired their gunsand conferred favors that led to a lasting friendship. King Philipconveyed to James Leonard about two hundred and fifty acres atMattapoisett Neck in Swansea in October 1665, but the deed was lost bythe Plymouth Court. Tradition says that out the outbreak of KIngPhilip's War in 1675, Philip gave strict orders that his men were neverto harm a Leonard (although young Uriah Leonard was almost shot by KingPhilip's men early in the war, a bullet having passed through his hat ashe rode his horse to escape an attack). It is conjectured that becauseof the Leonards Taunton was not attacked during the war. (Philip'sorders were actually not to disturb certain families including those ofJames Leonard, John Brown, and Capt. Thomas Willett, all of Taunton --Hurd, p. 346).

    One peculiarity to check out: although several Leonards were officers inthe militia of the time, there's little mention of Leonards fighting inPhilip's War. Bodge in Soldiers of King Philip's War mentions Jacob asserving under Capt. Woodworth, Thomas credited under Capt. Thomas BrattleOctober 19, 1675, and Thomas at Lynn, August 24, 1676. More researchneeds to be done on the activities of the Leonards during Philip's War.

    One of the garrison houses used during King Philip's War was the SamuelLeonard house erected in 1653 by James Leonard at the site of Taunton'sAncient Iron Works Company now in Raynham. A memorial plaque marking thespot is located seven-tenths of a mile east from Route 44 along the southside of Route 104.

    Another traditional story is that Philip's head was deposited in thebasement of Leonard's house for safekeeping before being sent toPlymouth. However, none of the early historians indicated anything butthat the head was sent directly to Plymouth for display. (Philip wasshot by Alderman, a Sakonnet Indian, on August 12, 1676, in a swamp atthe foot of Mt. Hope in Bristol. His head was set on a pole in Plymouthand stayed there for a generation. For more on King Philip's War, seeEric B. Schultz and Michael J. Tougias, "King Philip's War: The Historyand Legacy of America's Forgotten Conflict (Woodstock, VT: TheCountryman Press, 1999)."

    ECL notes that James had 68 grandchildren. A chart gives those presentat a Thanksgiving family party in 1690, and I've checked all thegrandchildren alive then against the chart (there were 45 living in 1690).

    William Reed Deane in "Genealogical Memoir of the Leonard Family" listsall of the children but John (NEHGS Reg. 1851:414(3).

    James LEONARD and Mary Jane MARTIN were married in 1640 in England.2 Mary Jane MARTIN2 (daughter of Isaac MARTIN) was born before 1625. She died on 25 Feb 1663/64 in Taunton, Bristol Co., MA. She was also referred to as Margaret and Jennie Martin. A family ofMartyns lived in Newport, not far from Pontypool. Henry Martyn, yeoman,1573, John, William, Thomas, Morgan, Mary, Edmund, Catherine, 1583.William was keeper of the keys in Newport. Further research at Newportand the Monmouthshire County Records Office might turn up a relationship,although church records in that area do not go back to this era.

    6021 The lots marked John Northey and Sarah Martin, with the dwelling house thereon, were the property of John Northey of Marblehead, fisherman, in 1667. He subsequently built an addition to the house, and died possessed of the estate in the spring of 1691. The house and the land were then appraised at one hundred pounds. He devised to his son John Northy the new part of the house, and that part of the lot, the house apparently facing to the southeast. The old part of the house and that part of the lot he devised to his daughter Sarah Martin..

    Mrs. Martin was the wife of John Martin, and after his decease she conveyed her part of the estate to her sons, Peter, Samuel, Robert and Thomas, she having only a life interest in the property, under her father's will, Nov. 20, 1714..

    John Northey, the son, died possessed of his part of the land before March 31, 1732, when administration was granted upon his estate. the house was gone, apparently, before that date. .

    On Saturday night, March 13, Mrs. Carrie McMichael daughter of James Pierce, and wife of George McMichael departed this life at the residence of her father where she had been removed in her last illness. Everything that kind parents and friends could do to make the pathway to the grave easy and pleasant was done, and at midnight when she felt that she must leave them, she called her husband, parents, aunts, and relatives present, to her side, bade them adieu, kissed them, and calmly sank to sleep in Him who had sustained her through the pains and trials of a long sickness Carrie was born here, Was 27 years old, and outside of a large circle of relatives was endeared to all the young people. Her genial good nature and kindness will be long be remembered. The funeral services were held from the house at 1 1-2 pm, Monday, and from the M. E. Church, at 2 where a large congregation assembled to mourn with the relatives. The services were very appropriate and impressive, Rev. M. B. Gelston leading in prayer, Rev. H . VanBenschoten discoursing from Revelations 22:4. and singing by the choir, a portion of which was composed of her own cousins, who being members, it was thought their love and grief could not be better expressed than by beautiful songs. She now lies as she requested — between her own mother and grandmother in Rose Ridge.

    Hayes. She was born in Genesee county, this state, resided most of her
    unmarried life in Dansville, until 1859, when she married John Hartman
    and removed to Groveland wher she has since lived. Her intense love
    for the Episcopal church of which she was a devoted member for many
    years was shown by the great pleasure she always manifested in its
    work. Her sweetness of character which had won for her so many
    friends while in health and prosperity a shown out even more brightly
    by the great patience and superhuman unselfishness she maintained
    during her long and painful illness. She will be missed by her
    husband and children as "loss of a mother is always keenly felt, even
    if her health be such as to incapacitate her from taking an active
    part in the care of the family. She is sweet rallying point for
    affection obedience and thousand tenderness. Dreary the blank when she
    is withdrawn." Her funeral which was held Saturday was largely
    attended by her immediate neighbors and many friends from Dansville.
    The beautiful and impressive Episcopal service was obeserved, Rev.
    Charles Ricksecker of Mt.Morris officiating.[CI:224:?4:CI]

    Edith Allen Perished in the Flames at Bolivar This Morning.
    Bolivar, Dec 24 - [Special] - Flames broke out in the double dwelling occupied by four families between 5 and 6 o'clock this morning. One part was occupied by families named Dean and Aldenburg and the other half by a family named Burdick and another whose name cannot be learned. It seems to have been caused by an over-pressure gas, and was discovered in Burdick's part. All this part was burned and nothing saved. Edith Allen, a little girl four years old., step-daughter of the gentleman whose name cannot be learned, perished in the flames. The remains are now at the undertakers. Both fire companies responded promptly to the alarm and did good work saving a house across the street which was twice on fire. There was no insurance so far as can be learned.

    6048 The sketch of the life of a self-made man is always interesting, and is not without its useful lessons.
    The grandfather of our subject, Ebenezer Ferrin, was a native of New Hampshire. He emigrated from the State to Concord, Erie Co., NY, and was on e of the pioneer settlers of that town. He located and cleared a farm near the village of Springville, where he closed his days in the year 1851. Upon that farm, also, his son Adna P., father of Augustine Ferrin, died in 1854, and there the subject of this notice was born, March 9, 1843.
    Mr. Ferrin’s father moved to the town of Yoirshire, Cattaraugus Co., NY, about the uear 1845, but returned to the homestead farm in Erie County in 1851. He followed the pursuit oof agriculture, as had his father before him. He married (in 1842), Lucinda Sanders, daughter of William Sanders, of Erie Co., NY, but of Connecticut partentage. She died in 1861. Of this union, Augustine was the oldest child. Owing to the death of his father when young Ferrin was but eleven years of age, his advantages for acquiring an education – limited to a few years at the district school, and a few terms at the Springville Academy – were cut short. The maintenance of his mother and sisters depending largely upon his efforts, he started out in the life-sturggle at an earlier age than most youths, - being but thirteen years of age when he entered the printing office on his maternal uncle, Lucius C. Sanders, then publishing The American Citizen, at Springville. Six months later the office was sold, and the paper discontinued. Augustine returned to his books, and thus spent the year that intervened ere he entered the office of the Springfield Heald, as a apprentice to the “art preservative.: While serving his apprenticship, and with the consent of his employer, he issued from that office a small paper entitled the Penny Weekly, the labor of his own hands and brain, and the result of diligently employed leisure hours. This early manifestation of genius shows his penchant for journalistic honor.
    He remained in the Herald office until August, 1962, when he enlisted in Company F, of the 116th Regiment of New York Volunteers. He accompanied the regiment to Baltimore, thence to Fortress Monroe and New Orleans, was with it at the siege of Port Hudson, and in the Donaldsonville campaign; but upon the return of the regiment to Baton Rouge, LA., he was sent to the hospital for disability, from whence he was honorably discharged in the fall of 1963. He returned to Springville December 1, and in the January following took charge of the Springville Chronicle, remaining its editor and publisher until April 1,1865, when he became the “city editor” of the well-known Buffalo Express. This honorable position he was, on account of failing health, compelled to resign in September 1965. The following year and a half were spent in efforts to regain his health. The summer of 1866 he passed on the farm of Rev. J. B. Saxe, thereby restoring his health sufficiently to justify him in returning to his chosen field of employment. He then purchased the Springville Herald establishment, and removed the press and materials to Ellicottville, where he started the Cattaraugus County Republican, the first issue of which was dated Feb. 7, 1868, he removed his officer thither.
    Jan. 1, 1873, he associated with himself B. B. Weber as a partner, and a few months later they opened an office at Salamanca. The Republican thenceforward was dated at Salamanca and Little Valley, with offices at both places. In addition to the above, in February, 1876, Messre, Ferrin & Weber engaged in a pioneer newspaper enterprise in the oil region, - establishing the Bradford Semi-Weekly Era. The paper was continued as a semi-weekly until October, 1877, when it was changed to a daily issue, Mr. C. F. Persons becoming a partner in the business. To comprehend the magnitude of the enterprise of publishing a daily at Bradford, with full “press dispatches,” it must be remembered that at the time the place was but a city in embryo, and numbered less than five thousand inhabitants. The Daily Era was a success from its inception, and became at once the organ of the oil producers in the Northern oil field. In April 1877, the two first-named partners sold their interest in the Bradford establishment to Mr. Parsons.
    Mr. Ferrin married (Sept 24, 1868) Miss Anna E. Weber, of Springville, NY. She died Feb. 15, 1872, and Jan. 1, 1874, he married Miss Flavilla J. Van Hoesen, Preble, Cortland Co., NY. The result of the latter union has been one son, - Augustine W. Ferrin, Jr., - and a daughter,, - Susie L. Mr. Ferrin’s residence is at Little Valley.
    Thus far in his career, Mr. Ferrin has led an active and useful life, and now, in the prime of his manhood, enjoys an enviable reputation of a journalist not only in the home of his adoption, but throughout Western New York.

    6049 The son of Thomas "The Settler" Dewey & his wife Frances, later the wife of George Phelps. Dewey married on 6 Nov 1662 at Northampton, MA to Hepzibah Lyman the daughter of Richard & Hepzibah Ford Lyman. The Deweys located at Northampton, MA about 1663 where Josiah learned the carpenter's trade and became a freeman in 1666. During King Philip's War he was a Sargent of the Guard at Westfield, MA.

    He was a Quaker and in his religious discovery he says; "When I was entred into a married state I saw myself now under former ingagemnts of attending heart-searching & hearing Mr. Mather on the hearts hardness assert that there was no plague like unto that, I was affrighted there at & soon after hearing Mr. Eliot (now of Gilford) on a lecture sermon was so awakened as to resolve no longer to delay but to fall to search my own heart. But I found it hard & difficult work to keep my mind to it & sometimes I found that my heart would slip from ye work almost as soon as I was at it. So that I could find little rest."

    He seems to have found that rest as he became a Deacon in the church at Westfield. In 1696 he moved to Lebanon, CT where he helped found the town, and where his name appears often in the early records.
