6204 WE have no record of the time when Thomas Wilder first settled in
Charlestown, or of his business relations. He was there, a citizen in
1640, and remained until 1659. We do not know that he held any public
office. That he was a substantial, capable man, respected in the
community, an active member of the church, a thorough Puritan, jealous
of the rights of the brotherhood, and willing to resist the
encroachments of the ministry, as he estimated them, there are
indications in the old records.
In 1652 a settlement was made on the Nashawena River, about forty
miles westerly from Charlestown, by purchasing from the Indians a
tract of land, eight miles by ten, which in 1653 was confirmed by the
General Court, which the legislative power of the colony was then
called. After sending a committee to inquire respecting the character
of the settlers and the suitableness of the land for a settlement, and
receiving a favorable report, the purchase was confirmed and they were
incorporated as a town. There were then but nine families, but they
were soon increased to thirty. A church was gathered and a minister
It was on the first day of July, 1654, that Thomas Wilder arrived with
his family, and took up his abode with them. His farm, of five hundred
acres, was situated near to, and easterly from the center of the
present town of Lancaster, as indicated by the "Burial Ground" given
to the town by his son Thomas, and in which the father's remains were
the first deposited.
In 1660, Thomas Wilder was elected one of the selectmen, an office
which, it is said, he held until his death, in 1667.

6206 We published last week a brief notice of the death of Mrs. Mathias Kershner and we give this week the following communication: The wife of Mathias Kershner was a most estimable lady and forty-four years of age. She had been failing in health for nearly a year, and during the past four or five weeks endured constant physical suffering, from which death released her on Monday last. She has been a true wife and faithful mother. Her many excellent qualities have gained her many friends, as was shown by the large concourse of people who gathered to pay their last respects to the deceased. Her last words were addressed to her husband and she expired with a smile upon her lips.
She has borne the heat and the burden, The toils and cares of the day. Her hope was anchored on Jesus, She smiled and passed away. The wife, the mother the loved one, Has answered the death angel s call, But she'll live In our hearts, aye live, Till upon us the death warrant shall fall.
From another communication we learn that Mrs. Kershner's maiden name was Caroline Deiter. She was a daughter of John Deiter and was born in Mohr township, Northampton county, Pa. , removed to this place in the fall of 1848, was married to Mathias Kershner Oct. 31, 1854, and was the mother of six children, three of whom survive her.

'Mr. West Almond' remembered - Chester Gosper left a legacy of
WEST ALMOND - Former town highway supervisor Leonard Watson said there
was one way to describe Chester "Chet" Gosper, the recently-deceased
former highway superintendent - Mr. West Almond.
That distinction was one of many glowing ways West Almond residents
described Gosper, who served as highway superintendent from 1958-90.
Gosper, who was born on Tuttle Road Jan. 24, 1928, died Monday at his
Turnpike Road home, leaving behind many accomplishments. He served in
the U.S. Army during World War II and worked at the Erie Railroad and
a dairy farm from 1949-58, before beginning a long career as town
highway superintendent.
Those who knew him say honesty and humor were his greatest traits.
Gosper's wife of nearly 57 years, Eleanor Gosper, said West Almond was
"Chet's town."
"He was the most honest, truthful person in town," Gosper said
Wednesday. "He was just a remarkable person. He never wanted to rile
people up. Just simply a great husband, father, grandfather and
great-grandfather. He was very loving of everyone."
The Gospers were married Feb. 10, 1948 in town hall and would go on to
have four children, nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
Leonard Watson, a former town board member, began a renovation project
this summer in Gosper's name on the 151-year-old former Methodist
Church and grange on County Route 2 with the help of a large donation
by resident Bruce Hitchcock. His decision came after Gosper had been
diagnosed with diabetes and had both of his legs amputated. Watson
said working with Gosper in the past had been a pleasure.
"Chet would spend many hours sitting in on town board meetings,"
Watson said. "He was so nervous about how people felt and thinking of
ways he could better help the residents. He knew what everyone was
thinking, and was so concerned about the taxpayers. Also, he never
bought or did anything without the board's approval. He was
conservative in his proposals and didn't waste anything ... He was Mr.
West Almond."
Eleanor Gosper said her husband always asked to be taken on his
wheelchair to see the community center with his name on it, and said
he was thrilled with Watson's idea to go through with the renovation
in his honor. She said her late husband took the town highway
superintendent job in 1958 when the old superintendent became ill.
"He wanted to take the challenge," Gosper said. "At the time, the town
wasn't in that great of shape but he helped change it around. He
really enjoyed his work. Years ago, during a large blizzard, he helped
open a road to Angelica, which he was very proud of. He enjoyed
plowing snow and other duties of his job. He took the current highway
superintendent (Mike Sherman) under his wing when he worked there and
helped him."
Gosper's grandson, Chester Gosper IV, said his memories of his
grandfather were and always will be warm and caring.
"He was so honest and humorous," said Gosper, a director at Brown &
Powers Funeral Home in Hornell, Canisteo and Angelica. "Everyone just
loved him. He always had a lot to tell me in his later years and I
liked to listen. Even when he lost his legs, he never blamed it on
anyone, which is amazing because he was always a person who did
everything for other people. He never once lost his sense of humor or
Don Hoffman, the town supervisor, said Gosper suggested he get
involved with the town board back in 1985, before becoming supervisor
in 1989.
"He'd been a fixture in West Almond," Hoffman said. "He was a great
guy and was here as long as I can remember. He was well-liked and
respected by many people."
In addition to being town highway superintendent, Gosper's wife said
he was an active member of the Allegany Highway Superintendents
Association and lifelong member of the Almond Rod and Gun Club. He was
also an avid hunter and enjoyed barbecues and holidays, especially
Christmas, said Eleanor Gosper. She said Gosper had attended
Alfred-Almond School until he reached the ninth grade, and said the
two had met when she grew up on nearby Jersey Hill Road and they would
go sliding down snow hills on sleds as teenagers.

In 1794 (Livingston County History) he apparently came with his son-in-law to Geneseo (then Ontario County, New York) making the journey in wagons. At this time Geneseo was a wilderness with only a few white settlers. He selected a tract of land near the village known as Lakeville, and assisted in organizing the First Presbyterian church in the town of Geneseo, of which he was appointed one of the Elders. He resided near Lakeville but a few years, then sold his land and bought for four dollars a tract of 100 acres in the southern part of the town. A hewed log house and a few acres of cleared land constituted his available estate. Here he resided till his death in about 1812. A few years before his death, John's younger brother, George, and his family came to Groveland.

1790 census-Northumberland Co.,PA-"John Duart" - 2 males>16, 0 males <16, 3 females. next to Widow Clemons, Hugh Lemond, Peter Smith, and near all the (Haynes)Haines's(Joseph, Jonathan, John, James, and David)

1800 census-Geneseo,Ontario Co.,NY-"John Ewert" - 1 male 16-25, 1 male 26-44, 1 female<10, 1 female 16-25. (NOTE: the numbers appear to be off by one column - if so it should be - 1 male 26-44(Samuel), 1 male 45+(John), 1 female 26-44(?) --- this leaves open that Mary may not have come to Geneseo and is buried in PA and the female 26-44 is a daughter of John or second wife) next to Benjamin Squires, Thomas Austin, John Hutchin (only 48 heads of household in the town of Geneseo in 1800)

1810 census-Geneseo,Ontario Co.,NY-"Jno Evarts" (written over "Jno Ewarts") - one male 26-45(Samuel), 1 male 45+(John), 1 female 45+(Mary or second wife?) to Benjamin Squires, Nathan Wheeler, Josiah Wheeler, David Warner.

The Ewart family, although from Armagh County, Ireland, where of Scottish ancestry.

The Ewart's grave is located in Temple Hill Cemetery, next to the main road(Rte 20), a large white marble marker has the insrciption of his son Samuel, and next to this are two illegable markers, believed to be that of John and his wife. His son Samuel and his family has another monument in the center of the cemetery - most likely were Samuel is actually buried (or moved from his orginal location).

6234 When about a year old his parents moved to Seneca County; lived there about 5 years, and moved to Tyrone,Schuyler Co.,NY. Joel being the oldest of the family, and in very moderate circumstance, it become his lot to be deprived of many of the advantages of aquiring an education which many even in those days of poor schools enjoyed. At the age of nineteen he commenced his time from his father for $75 and working on a farm (in Enfield,NY) by the month, when he was 24 years old he had not only paid his father, but saved enough to purchase 90 acres of land in Howard,NY, In 1878 he was an owner of 288 acres of excellant land.

The value of his estate was $4,180.52, including 107 acres of farm land in Howard,NY.

"A farmer from Howard was driving down Main Street[Hornell] yesterday afternoon behind a pair of spirited horses, when the animals took fright near the furniture factory and started on a brisk run. It was impossible to hold them and they ran across the bridge at high speed. In turning after crossing the bridge they upset the wagon and threw the man out. His head struck
on a stone cutting a bad gash in his forehead. The team came to a stand still near the harness shop. Dr. Parkhill dressed the man's wound and he was soon able to proceed on his way home with a borrowed wagon, his own having been wrecked. The farmer's name was Joel Russell, somewhat advanced in years. He is not considered seriously injured." Hornell Tribune, August 1884.

"Joel Russell has rented his farm for the coming year to his son Harrison" Hornell Tribune, November 1884

6240 When the first Verveelen, young Daniel born in Amsterdam in 1635,
arrived in New Netherland in 1652, he came with Gideon and Agnietje
Moens (Moriaens) Schaets. And, he subsequently married their daughter,
Alida (Aletta). Gideon Schaets was a minister (Dominie) in the Dutch
Reformed Church, as had been his father. He had also been a
schoolmaster and tutor at The Hague and at Brielle in the Netherlands.
Agnietje was a governess whose family had previously been in the
service of the Dukes of Burgundy for generations and were high
government officials at The Hague.
The Schaets name is derived from the Norse word "skeatse"
meaning warior or sharp-shooter. The Schaets and Moens families, both
of Viking descent and long allied, settled prior to 1400 in the
Netherlands city of Tongeren, on the Meuse River, now part of Belgium.
It was an area of Germanic tribes that early on resisted the incursion
of the Romans.
Daniel, son of Johannes and Anna Verveelen, and then still a boy of
seventeen years, arrived in New Netherland in 1652, traveling in the
care of Dominie (The Reverend) Gideon and Agnietje Schaets. The
Dominie had received a call to become the second pastor of the Dutch
Reformed Church at Albany, known at the time as Beverwyck.
Daniel at first became a trader in New Amsterdam and Beverwyck.
About 1661, he married Aletta Schaets, daughter of the Dominie and
Agnietje Schaets, settled in New Amsterdam, and joined his father in
the Red Lion Brewery. He later also succeeded his father as
ferrymaster in Harlem. He and Aletta moved about, living as well for a
while in New Utrecht in what is now Brooklyn, New York, and finally
across the Hudson River to Hackensack, New Jersey. Over the years,
they raised seven children. Although the surnames changed with time
(e.g., Ver Valen, Van Valen, and Van Valer), their descendants are now
widely scattered across the nation from New York to Hawaii.
The Dominie's grandmother was Janne Schagen, a descendant of the
minor noble house of Schagen in North Holland. The first Lord Van
Schagen (died 1473) is believed to have been the brother of William
VI, Count of Holland, and the illegitimate son of Duke Albrecht of
Bavaria, who presented the Schagen family with a coat of arms.

6250 WILIMINGTON, N.C. - Shirley Marie Herington passed away peacefully on Jan. 25, 2006.

Shirley was born in Dansville on May 6, 1945, the seventh child of Charles and Irene Perry, who predeceased her.

Shirley married Roger Allen Herington, her soul mate, in 1965. They enjoyed 41 years of loving marriage and raised three wonderful women: Morella Marie (Michael) Breckenridge, Lorie Ann (Todd) Morgan and Virginia Irene Herington.

Roger and Shirley proudly guided their daughters through college graduation and on to successful careers, as well as going back to school and obtaining her own college degree. They also enjoyed the pleasure of watching the marriage of their daughters Morella to Michael and Lorie Ann to Todd.

Morella blessed Shirley and Roger with two beautiful grandchildren, Adam (age 15) and Autumn (age 11). Virginia blessed them with a beautiful granddaughter, Rochell (age 14).

Shirley is also survived by her deeply loved brothers Gerald (Doris) and Ken (MaryLou) Perry and sisters Dot (Dick Bennett), Eileen (Charlie Wright), Gloria (Dick Kreiley) and Barbara (Nelson Thorpe); Roger's mother Marjorie Herington and sisters Nancy (Lee Durkee), Beverly (Hugh Ross) and Virginia (Harry Tesch) and brother Ernie (Norma); and numerous nieces and nephews.

Shirley's greatest talents were in bringing joy to the lives of others and sharing her zest for life. She was able to enjoy teaching her grandchildren some of her greatest talents: cooking, sewing, quilting and midnight shopping trips to Wal-Mart.

In March of 2004, Roger retired after 20 years at General Electric, and he and Shirley set off on their lifetime dream-a tour of the continental United States, Canada and Alaska in their RV. On their journey they took in the beauty of areas of the country they had never before seen; the Dakotas, Wyoming, Montana, British Columbia, Moab Utah, Arizona, Arkansas and the highlight of their trip, Alaska. They spent the entire summer there. Shirley saw Denali three times during this trip, went whitewater rafting, fishing for salmon, and deep sea fishing. She caught the largest halibut in the picture above.

Shirley and Roger traveled from the beginning of April to mid-October and their family never saw them happier. During the past year she lived her dream. They returned determined to sell their home and begin their 'nomadic life' of continuing their travels around the U.S., with the plan to return to Alaska in 2007.

Shirley's death came suddenly; she had been very happy, feeling well, and enjoying an excellent quality of life right up to the end. She went to sleep quietly, peacefully, painlessly and then simply slipped away. Her family's sadness and loss is without bounds, but we are grateful that the Lord took her peacefully and without pain and suffering.

A service to remember and celebrate the life of Shirley was held at Andrew's Mortuary, 1617 Market Street, Wilmington, N.C., on Sunday, Jan. 29 at 3 p.m. The family received friends and family at 2 p.m., who brought with them their fondest memories of Shirley to share.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Attn: Thanks and Giving, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105. (GCE, February 2, 2006, p4)
