March 20 / 22, 1846 in Franklin Co., Oh. buried at Wesley Chapel Cem., Hilliard, Ohio (ref.

Rev. Benjamin Britton settled on land, next south of Brunk, at the same time. He was a Christian, "New Light" preacher and early organized a church of that denomination. Members of the church, afterwards joined with the congregation at Dublin." This is believed to be the father of Benjamin Britton (1797-1868) based on Ben Jr's. marriage (when almost 19) To Elizabeth Brunk (aged 15½] in 1816 in Franklin Co. and the proximity of the two families as indicated in the county history. Rev. Benjamin and Elizabeth may have had the following children, but proof via original records has not been obtained: Elizabeth, John, Matilda, James, and Noah.

During the depression she helped make a | | large garden each year and canned all of the vegetables and fruit needed to feed herself and Edna and the boarders, William and John | | Lomax, and later, Hallie Johns, for the rest of the year. A coal-burning cook-stove was used to heat water (pumped from a cistern) for | | all washing and bathing. Even when there was little food in the house, she always fed a hobo who stopped and asked, and let them do | | a little work in return (they always volunteered). She greatly enjoyed baking and decorating fancy cakes. Nellie was a kind and gentle | | woman who was a devoted wife and mother and who raised one grandchild. After Edna died, she was sorely tried when she had to | | keep house for John James. She died as the result of a heart attack. | | His two-column obituary is partially quoted: ".... Mr. Britton has been in the employ of E.A. Vandeveer, deceased, and Major W.T. | | Vandeveer, since coming to Taylorville in 1891, later becoming cashier of the Vandeveer Bank. At the death of E.A. Vandeveer he was | | chosen to manage the numerous farm properties of Mr. Vandeveer's heirs. He was always prominent in the Methodist church of this | | city, taking an active part in all of the church's work. He was superintendent of the Sunday school, holding that office for the last | | twelve years. Mr. Britton was a deacon of the church|and a member of the building committee. For many years Mr. Britton was | | honored by the presidency of the district school boards and was a member of the Taylorville library board at the time of his death. He | | served years ago as deputy under Sheriff H.W. Johnson. He was a member of the Hyperion lodge I.O.O.F. Amprehel encampment and | | the Rebekah lodge. Mr. Britton was born in 1860 near Clarksdale, receiving his education |in a nearby country school, later teaching | | near Palmer and Stonington. ...... | | In the death of Ben Britton, Taylorville loses a most valuable citizen. Always good-natured, and charitable in his judgement of others | | he had made and held thousands of friends, who were shocked by his untimely death.

I was graduated from Ursuline in 1939 with scholarships to Webster College and Marquette University, neither of which I was | | able to accept because of financial restraints. At that time there was no such thing as a student loan, nor even high school counselors to | | guide and encourage. I had taken some commercial classes during my high school years and was able to secure a secretarial position with | | New England Mutual Life Insurance Co., where I worked until the outbreak of World War II at which time I went to work at National | | Bearing Division of American Brake Shoe Co. While employed there I attended night classes in philosophy at St. Louis University for | | two years. I did not pursue a degree and have regretted it ever since. The only other college courses I have taken were the three Art | | classes I took a few years ago. My mother saw to it that I had violin and piano lessons for a time in grade school, and I resumed the piano | | lessons after I began working. I stayed at Brake Shoe, moving up over the years from secretary to Priorities Administrator to secretary to | | the Division President. About six months after his first wife's death, Howard invited me out for dinner. We were married May 3, 1958 and | | had three girls. After Howard's death in 1966 (in Akron Ohio to which he had been transferred), I moved "home" and have been here at | | this address ever since. The children were 3, 4 and 5 when Howard died. I stayed home with them until Sally was 9 or 10 at which time I | | began working at my present office, which afforded me the flexibility in hours I needed to continue caring for the children, car pooling to | | get them back and forth to Ursuline, etc., and being home when they got home from school. | | I'm still in the same office. At age 65 I learned to operate a computer and enough accounting to handle the payroll and accounts payable | | for the school and church, about 45 employees. ... | | With a business college education my dad worked for the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad; then the Frisco Railroad, as a telegrapher, | | until the depression. After that he worked as a public transportation motorman until he retired. He was reared in Quincy, Ill. ...

I am attempting to locate references to original records or reminiscences that are somewhat contempory -- I've about given up finding any original records. My address is: John B. Lomax 6 Russell Court Menlo Park, CA 94025-2934 John - Thank you very much for your listing of the Britton family. You appear to have made much progress in piecing it together. My congratulations!I am going to suggest to you that the Benjamin Britton who married Elizabeth Brunk is NOT the same as the Benjamin Britton who married Elizabeth Grace. Please see the attached file in Rich Text Format for my reasoning and the records that I've found about this family. I am guessing that some of the information in your listing is from my file in the RootsWeb WorldConnect website listing under Samuel Lomax And His Descendants, a book that I published in 1991. The attachment lists the references and the biographical text from which that listing was abstracted.I gather that you have access to the James Grace Genealogy. Is that where the information about Elizabeth Grace was derived? If so, I would greatly appreciate receiving the full reference to that book as well as a copy of the pertinent data from it for Elizabeth and her immediate family. John Britton.rtf (90K) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- John, Sorry it has taken some time to get back to you. Very hectic week. You asked how I was connected to the Grace Family. I gleaned the information I have from the LDS information on line, submitted by David Bowers. We apparently share the same great grandparents. Harrison “Harry” Hommon & Rachael Loraine Dildine Hommon. David’s grandmother Matilda Hommon Bowers & my grandfather Oscar Hommon/Homon/Homan apparently were siblings. Note* I don’t know how accurate David’s info is. If I have found proof of any thing I will note it . This is how he has us connected to the Grace Family My father: Arguyle Clifford Homan, b.1915 in Harvey Co, Kansas (near Peabody) d. 1951, Huron, SD His father: Oscar Adophus Homan b.1876 in Hilliard, Franklin Co., OH Note***(some family say 1876 but tombstone in Peabody, Marion Co., KS says 1875-1945) Note***Marriage licence for Oscar Homan obtained from state of Illinois says : he was b. in Hilliard, OH...Father: Harry HOMON.....Mother: Lorain Dildine Father of Oscar: Harrison “Harry” Hommon b. 13 Aug 1846 in Hillard, Franklin Co., OH Note*** (his tombstone says 1847-1899 in Wesley Chapel Cemetery, Columbus, OH) Wife of Harry: Rachael Loraine Dildine b.7 Mar 1840 d. 16 Nov 1929 Hilliard, Franklin Co., OH Father of Rachael: Henry Dildine b. abt.1812 in N.J.

A friend did a very detailed list for me of specific surnames in some of the Ohio Cemeteries. When you have the list, grave by grave it’s very interesting to see the inter family relationships & how the different surnames intertwine. I was born in KS, but have lived in Arizona for 19 yrs. My grandparents died when I was 7. My parents separated shortly after, later divorced, & Dad died when I was 13. I really never knew him. I had very little contact with the Homan family, but am trying very hard to find my roots. I know this is pretty long for an email, but if it helps you, maybe in time it will help me also. Have more Grace, VanSchoik, Van Schoyck, Britton, Elzey, tombstones if you want them. Your Cousin , I think?

I don't have your John on my list, but I'msure my little list is not complete. I am a descendant of Thomas Gilmore,Mary Grace's first husband, by his first wife, therefore I am not a Gracedescendant. My maiden name is Gilmore. I have pasted in below a little groupsheet showing the four daughters of James Grace that I am aware of. My maininterest though, is daughter Mary since she was married to my ancestor.

However, I do not believe the one that settled in Franklin Co. PA is the one that arrived in Phildelphia in 1738. He was 52 when he arrived. However,there was another Johann Frederick Krafft, age 21, who arrived in the ship Samuel in 1737. Anyway, the Johann Frederick Krafft who settled in Franklin Co., PA married first Barbara Salida 15 Oct 1739 and their first son, Frederick, was born in 1741. Barbara died before 1746 and he married Mary Margaret Kusein in 1746. Johann Frederick's will in Somerset Co. PA says, "to my beloved son Frederick", but does not say where his son Frederick was at that time. I have reason to be his son Frederick could be my ancestor, Frederick Croft, born 1741, and in Greenville Co. SC by 1785, so I would like to know where Johann Frederick's son was when the will was probated in 1802. I am also interested in any info on Johann Frederick's descendants that might help answer the questions, including the location of the Philip Wegerline. per cme11981@cs.com Mel Croft GERMANY BY JANET DAVIS I AM WORKING ON MY FAMILY TREE ON THE CROFT'S WHO CAME FROM GERMANY. THE INFORMATION THAT YOU HAVE WILL BE VREY HELPFUL TO ME WITH MY FAMILY WORK. ANNA DORTHEA FRONICA KRAFT THAT WAS MARRIED TO PHILIP WEIGHLY (OR WEGERLINE} THANK YOU VANESSA HEPFER jhepfer@supernet.com "Probably emigrated to Pennsylvania on the ship "Winter Galley" from Rotterdam, landing at Philadelphia, Sept. 5, 1738. On the same vessel was Johan Jacob Krafft, who it is believed, was the brother of Frederick. The tradition in the 'Croft' family is that soon after their arrival in PA they came up the Cumberland Valley through Shippenburg to the site of Chambersburg, where they lived at or near the graveyard of the Falling Spring Presbyterian Church. Here the brothers disagreed and separated, according to tradition, Johan Jacob settling in New York State. Besides Frederick and Johan Jacob Krafft, who emigrated in 1738, there were two others, apparently brothers, Frederick and Heinrich Krafft, who came on the ship "Shirley", landing Sept. 5, 1751. (Who are these two???) . . . Frederick Krafft, the ancestor of the Krafft family named at the beginning of this artiel obtained an order for survey for 292 acres of land in Guilford township, 9 Apr 1768. the survey was made 14 Sep 1768. This land was north of the Witherspoon farm, now owned by Hon. John W. Witherspoon, and nearly a mile east of the Chambersburg and Greencastle road. Mr. Krafft sold it to John Miller, 1 May 1779, and thirty years afterward it became the property of Miller's grandson, Christian Miller. Later Mr. Krafft bought from Henry Shryock, of Chambersburg, a farm in Brothers Valley Township in what is now Somerset County. The agreement for the purchase was dated 3 Nov 1792 and he was a taxable in that township in 1796." from "Biographical Annals of Franklin County PA". per http://home.inreach.com/jjudd/Elaine%20html/d0002/g0000067.html Conrad KYNER / KEINATH grandfather-in-law to Elizabeth (Mock) Kiner Conrad KYNER / KEINATH b. 1755 in New Holland, Lancaster Co, PA Christened: New Holland, Lancaster Co, PA d. 11 Mar 1816 , Southampton Twn, Franklin Co, PA Buried: Spring Hill Cem, Shippensburg, Cumberland Co, PA married Elizabeth STUMBAUGH in 1787 |-Jacob KYNER b. before 1798 in Shippensburg, Franklin, Pennsylvania |-Philip KYNER b. before 1796 in Row, Franklin Co., Penn. | |-Michael KYNER b.

Both brothers were in the Revolutionary War and are sons of John ( perhaps John Jacob)Link who was Killed by Indians while defending his farm in 1781 near Middle Wheeling VA (now W. VA).

In 1772 John Markly was imposed with the first tax, having 200 acres, 10 acres improved, 4 horses, and 5 cows. In 1786 John purchased 242 acres called "John's Fancy". John and Eve were the first white settlers in Bedford/Somerset County in 1754. Long before 1786 when the survey of John's Fancy was made he lived in Elk Lick Twp. The first assesment of Brother's Valley Twp. was made in 1772. In it is found the name of John Markley with 200 acres. John Markly had other surveys of land made to him, 355 acres "Grassy Run" in 1775, 175 acres "Flog Hill" in 1775, 460 acres "Mount Joy" in 1785. Flog hill got its name because John and another man laid claim to the same land and the deal was settled by a bout of "fisty-cuffs". John Markley won. "John's Fancy was his favorite and became his home. In 1785 a tract of 300 acres was surveyed to his wife Eve. All the lands except John's Fancy, were located on the west bank of Castleman's River. The records show that John Markly lived in Somerset County as early as 1772. The treaty of Fort Stanwick in 1768 opened the land to settlement as it had previously been Indian land. In the history prior to 1768 a number of settlers had penetrated the land and were called trespassers. John Markly was one of these. In 1788 John sol John's Fancy to his son Joseph. He sold Grassy Run and Mount Joy to his son in law Jacob Keagy. The disposition of Flog Hill Is not known. John's will was executed on October 5, 1796 and admitted to probate October 11, 1796. John and Eve's house has been moved to Spruce Forest Artisan Village, at Penn. Alps, Grantsville, Maryland.

Note: History of Ashland Co, by Knapp: Joseph Markley emigrated from Somerset Co. Pa to Montgomvery twp in March 1815 and settled upon the land which he had the previous october purchased of the widow Trickle-said land being the east 1/2 of section 17, and now adjoining the town of Ashland on the east. Those members of his family who accompanied him to the country consisted of his wife and 7 sons, 2 daughters, five sons remaining in Pa. David Markley now a resident fo Stark Co, Il was a man of considerable influence during his residence in Uniontown. He was 6 ft 2 inches in height, of fine physical development, and proportionage strength. He owned a distillery, and would grasp a full barrel of whisky, and raise it from the groung and place it in a wagon without making extraordinary effort. He appeared to possess the concentrated strenght of 2-3 ordinary men. since his residence in Illinois, he was been repeatedly elected a member of the legislature of that Stage, and has held other official positions, in all of which he appears to have discharged his dutied satisfactorily. There have been several reports that Joseph died in 1831, but he was buried in 1825 according to the cemetary. And I have the following will abstract:1825 July: Abstracts of Wills, Richland co. Ohio: 1 July 1825: To wife Susanna: entire estate, including northeast quarter, section 17, twp 22, range 16 To eldest son Phillip: $200 after decease of wife To son s Peter, David, Joseph, Jonathan, and moses $500 each, given previously To sons aaron and Horatio: $400 each, given previously To son Solomon, $400 To daughter Matilda Markley $400 To youngest daughter Francis $400 To sons John and Matthias $500 each, given previously Executors: Wife, Susannah Markley: son, Matthias Markley. Witnesses: John Crider, Seth Benton, Conrad Cline (Note no mention of a son named Seth) From Joseph Markley, Canton, Ohio from his "History of the Markley Relationship". However I, Steve Guthrie have occassionally found some discrepancies, but decided to include anyway:West Salisbury, Pa: this ancient village was planned or laid out in 1796 by Joseph Markley, son of John, on part of a tract called John's Fancy, patented to John Markley in 1787. Joseph born 1752 married Susanna, daughter of Philip Weigley who was the first settler of Brothersvalley Twp, now Somerset Co. In 1815 Joseph sold his property in Pa and moved with part of his family of twelve boys and 2 girls to Ashland, Ohio. Joseph and Peter Shirer operated a general store in Bedford County, Pa. It was the largest store in the area. Joseph donated the lot for the school in Salisbury. He sold 18 of 56 lots and buildings were erected by 1802. The highest price he received for any one lot was $10.00 and the fire station was built upon it, lot #54. Joseph operated the first still in Elk Lick Twp. He was also one of the first incorporators and subcontractors for the Plank Road from Wellersburg to Berlin. 1796: Laid plotted and laid out the town of Salisbury. 1862 is was incorporated into a town and there were 39 voters with a population of about 200. In 1875 the coeal industry began to be developed on the west side of Castleman's River and the town took a new start in growth and soon it had a population of near 1000 people. And this place is today known as Elk Lick. 1815: sold his holding in Pennsylvania. and moved to Ashland, Ohio Aletter dated April 30, 1765 from Winchester Va. staed; "The pionerr inhabitants of this colony and Maryland are fast removing over the Allegheny Mountains, in order to settle and live there" The people referred to and others for several years settled chiefly in the Valley of the Redstone, at Turkeyfoot and some other points below on the Youghiogheny, In the Valley of Cheat River, and in Gist's Neighborhood, just west of the Laurel Hill now termed Mount Braddock. These settlements were all made during the years 1763 to 1768 inclusive and with Fort Pitt embraced continued until 1770. It is said that between 1771 and 1773, 25000 people were driven from their places of birth, westward by the repacity of their landlords. This was just before the Revolutionary War began. The sruggle with the English Government was aided by these immigrants and many went into battle for the American cause. The Tory was unheard of among their ranks . They were found as military leaders in all times of danger and were among the most prominent lawmakers, through and after the lonf struggle for freedom and human rights. Everett Eugene Markley claimed that Joseph was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and that he settled in PA after the war was over. this is porbably true, for if he was born in 1752, he was 23 yrs old whn that war started and 31 yrs when it ended. "John Markley Descendants" by Ruth Markley: Joseph puchases 242 acres east of the Casselman Riber from his father in 1788. This land was then knwon as "John's Fancy". The town of Salisbury now sits on this once rich beautiful farm land. In 1815 Joseph sold his holdings in Pa. he had a family of 12 boys and 2 girls, eight of the sons and 2 daughters moved to Ohio with him. In 1823 another son Peter and family followed him there. It is not known whether other grown sond Philip, David and Joseph followed their father to Ashland co Ohio. At least there is no record of it and as to what became of them is not ascertained. He brought with him his family members who were under age and the records of Ashland Co. Ohio have the following: Joseph Markley emigrated from Somerset Co. Pa to Montgomery Twp, Ashland Co. Ohio March 1815, and settled on the land which he had previously in Oct 1814 purchased from the widow Trickel. That portion of Mr. Markley family which moved from Somerset Co. Pa to Ashland Co. Ohio consisted of himself, wife, eight sons, Jonathan, John, Mathias, Moses, Aaron, Horation, Solomon, and Seth and 2 daughters Matilda and Frances. The left 4 grown up sons in Pa. They drove through in a fine covered waton, following the state road by way of Canton, and wooster. They brought with them some necessary cooking utensils, provisions, 7 horses and 6 milk cows. At that time the forests were filled with grass, pea vines and shrubbery, upon which the cattle and horses fed.They moved unto a cabin which was a 12 x 12 strusture. When he arrived tehre was a camp of Indians on the present site of the residence of Jerry Fulkerson in south Ashland, and 2 or 3 camps down the streat about a half a mile, all of which contained about 50 indians, including their squaws and papooses. They were engaged in hunting and making sugar and had 20 or 30 ponies and a number of dogs with them. They left early in the summer. During the first season of their residence tehre, this family endured provocation such as they had never known before. None were skilled in the use of the rifle and consequently could not supply themselves with wild game. The famly having consumed their supply of corn, 2 of the boys, Jonathan and Horatio were dispatched with Jack horses to Shrimplans Mills over an old indian trail, there being no road which had been traveled by wagon. One dollar and 25 cents per bushel was the price paid at the mill fo rthe corn. During the spring the family had made a large supply of maple sugan and maple syrup. Their diet consisted of corn bread and maple syrup. The first summer Mr. Markley, wife and 2 daughters slept in the log cabin, and the boys in and under the covered wagon. Conrad Cline who had purchased the Carter farm, and John Miller were kind enough to supply Joseph and family with corn meal at a neighborly price until they could purchase corn adn get it ground at one of the mills. Aaron, one of the surviving sons who lived in 1880, and the only one of the family left at that time said that "corn bread, hominy and a little port with a tin of milk consistitued their luxuries that first summer and winter. The old gentleman for at that time he was 63 yrs of age, assisted by his 8 sons, soon prepared a few acres of corn which they cultivated with care and which yeilded a tolerable crop. Their next case was to put up a hewed log cabin, sufficient in size to accomodate the large family, and by the time it was completed the fall of the year was at hand. having gathered in their scanty crops, Mr. Markley then went to Mansfield about 9 miles distant and purchased 3 large hogs at a cost of 84 dollars, and the winter mear supply fo rthe famly was thus purvided for. About this time Jonathan and Horatio took 5 horses with pack saddles, and following indian paths procedded to Owl Creek, the 'Egypt" of Notehrn Ohio, and there they purchased 5 loads of shelled corn. They then proceeded til another point known as Shrimplens Mills to get it ground into meal, but the mill was out of order and unable to work, so they then brought it home and crusshed it on the honing clock by pounding. After this process it was sifted and the course gragments being separated, were convered into hominy and the balance into corn bread. Thus the winter of 1815 and 1816 passed off luckily and happily for the sturdy Markleys. This family soon became noted and famous because of the uncommon size and strength of the members. Joseph Sr. was a tall mand and weighted 200 and 60 pounds. His wife Susannah tipped the scales at 240 pounds, while the boys with the exception of Aaron averaged abou t6 feet and 3 inches in height and 250 pounds i nweight. It is said tha tthe four sons left in the east were of similar build. Aaron Markley one of the sons was called the "runt" of the family, but nevertheless he was 5 feet 7 inches in height and weighed 230 pounds. It is said that David, the 3rd son, could lift by the chimes a barrel of sugar water and drink from the bung hole. It was rare thing in those days to find such a family of giants, and many of the older citizens to this day relate feats of strength perfomed by these pioneers, as handed down to them by theri forefathers, indicating that they were wonderfully blessed by nature i nmatter of health and strength" www.salisburypa.com:Salisbury was founded April 15, 1795 by Joseph Markley. The tract of land, "John's Fancy", was given to Joseph by his father John Markley. John, his wife Eva, and oldest son Jacob came from Wurtemberg, Germany in August 1749. The town had a few different names prior to becoming Salisbury. These names included Brushtown and Salsburrich. The Dutch settlers decided on the name Salsburrich because of the salt deposits in the area. When the first post office was established the name was officially changed to Salisbury. In 1862 the borough was incorporated under the name "Elk-Lick". When these settlers first came into the Salisbury area it was inhabited by Cornplanter Indians 5/2000: born 1765 according to the cemetary.

He also made large quantities of maple syrup and sugar and worked very hard to make a living | in that wild and wooded country. about 1860 he started to cross the great plains with an emigrant train of 5 or 6 covered | wagons bound for Colorado.

They were | friendly and never gave us any trouble whatever. My father located on what was known as Big Thompson Creek in | Colorado, near the base of the mountains from where we could see the Snow Range most any day in summer time unless | there were clouds hanging over the mountains as they sometimes did." This farm ow which she speaks was located on a | branch of the Platte River about 25 miles north of Denver, and josephs first wife, Emily Allen who died in 1864 is buried | there. Sarah continued "the people who emigrated with us to Colorado just looked around a day or two, then started back | east to the homes they had left some weeks previous. Our family was the only one that stayed in Colorado and we stayed | there 8 yrs, then father brought us back to Ohio, except my oldest brother John N. who did nto come back. We lived on | Thompson Creek for 6 months before my mother ever was another white woman. There were many Mexican and Indian | women there at the time but we could not understand their language so they were not much company for us." After the | death of Emily, Joseph disposed of his farm and returned to Monroe Co in 1866 with all of his children except John N. | who came five years later. he married Margaret about 1867 and moved into West Virbinia, where he lived with her and | his children until her death about 1872.

When he arrived, there was a camp of | Indians on the present site of the residence of Jerry Fulkerson, in South Ashland, and two or three camps down the stream about 1/2 a | mile, all of which contained about 50 Indians, including their squaws and papooses. They were engaged in hunting and making sugar, | and had 20-30 ponies, and a number of dogs with them. They left early in the summer. Mr Markleys family consisted of himself, wife | and seven sons-Jonathan, John, Matthias, Moses, Aaron, Horation, and Solomon; and 2 daughters, Matilda and Frances. They left 4 | sons, grown, in Pennsylvania-Phillip, Peter, David and Joseph. They came by Canton and Wooster. The brought 7 horses, and a fine | covered wagon, and 6 milch cows. The forests were filled with grass, pea vines, and shrubbery, upon which the cattle and horses fed. | The first summer, Mr Markley, wife and 2 daughters slept in the little cabin, and the boys in and under the covered wagon. Conrad | Kline, who had purchased the Carter farm and John Heller, were kind enough to supply Markley and family with corn meal at a | neighbory pirce, until they could purchase corn and get it ground at one of the mills. Aaron Markley, the only member of the family in | this county says:"Corn bread, hominy, a little port, and a tin of good mile constituted their luxuries the first summer and winter" | The old gentleman, aided by his seven sons, soon prepared a few acres of corn, which they cultivated with care, and which yielded a | tolorable crop. Their next care was to put up a hewd log cabin. It was completed and ready to be occupied early in the fall. | When winter began to approach, Mr Markley went to Mansfield and purchased 3 large hogs, for which he paid 84 dollars and 50 | cents. This contituted the winter meat for the family. Johnathan and Horation took 5 horses with pack saddles, and following the | Indian paths proceeded to Owl Creek, the "Egypt"or northern Ohio for corn. They purchased 5 loads of shelled corn, and went to | Shrimplins mill to get it groung; but the mill having given out, they brought it home, and it was crushed in the hominy block by | pounding. After this process, it was sifted, and the course fragments being separated, were converted into hominy, and the balance into | corn bread. Thus the winter of 1816 passed with the Markleys. The Markley family sooon because famous for their | uncommon size and strength. The old gentleman weighed 260 pounds, the old lady 240 and the boys, when grown, averaged about | 250, while Aaron, the runt of the family weighted 230. The boys, with the exception of Aaron, averaged about 6 feet 3 inches in | height-Aaron being about 5 feet 7. It is asserted by the early settlers that David, the 3rd son, could lift by the chimes a barrel of sugar | water, and drink from the bung-hole. It is rare that such a family of giants is found in a new country. No one had the temerity to | content with David. Samuel, Thomas and Solomon Urie, all 6 feet high and very stout, sometimes had a little tilt with the Markleys, | but rarely won a laurel. Aaron, now (1880) resides on the old homestead, is 79 yrs old and is the only member of the family in this | county. Joseph Markley, sr died in 1831 (this is incorrect date, he died in 1825 according to cemetary records), aged 60 yrs and | his wife soon followed him to the tomb. Most of his sons went west, where several of them have risen to posts of honor. | History of Ashland Co, by Knapp: Joseph Markley emigrated from Somerset Co. Pa to Montgomvery twp in March 1815 and settled | upon the land which he had the previous october purchased of the widow Trickle-said land being the east 1/2 of section 17, and now | adjoining the town of Ashland on the east. Those members of his family who accompanied him to the country consisted of his wife | and 7 sons, 2 daughters, five sons remaining in Pa. David Markley now a resident of Stark Co, Il was a man of considerable influence | during his residence in Uniontown. He was 6 ft 2 inches in height, of fine physical development, and proportionage strength. He | owned a distillery, and would grasp a full barrel of whisky, and raise it from the groung and place it in a wagon without making | extraordinary effort. He appeared to possess the concentrated strenght of 2-3 ordinary men. since his residence in Illinois, he was been | repeatedly elected a member of the legislature of that State, and has held other official positions, in all of which he appears to have | discharged his dutied satisfactorily. During the first season of their residence i nthe county, the Markley family endured privations | such as they had never before known. None of the family were skilled i nthe use of the rifle, and consequently could not supply | themselved with wild game. The family having nearly consumed their stock of corn meal, 2 boys (Horation and Jonathan) were | dispatched with jack horses to Shrimplins mil for a new supply. The journey occupied 3 days, and their route was on an Indian trail- | there being no roads which had been traversed by wagons. One dollar and 25 cents per bushel was the price paid at the mill for corn. | During the spring, the family had made a considerabel quantity of sugar-and corn bread and sweetened water, without a pound of | butter or meat, bormed the only food for the family during the period of several weeks. These were the families of William | Montgomery and Conrad Kline. When the town was laid out by Mr. Montomery, there was not a cabin or family upon the town plot. | Henry Gample and John Smith settled in the neighborhood during the same spring that Mr. Markley came to the county. | "John Markley Descendants" by Ruth Markley: he was the first merchant to start in business in Ashland Co. Ohio operating a small | general store until 1817 when he disposed of it. After htis, he operated a small distillery for a short time. 2 of his children, julian and | Bolivar, aged 6 adn 3 yrs respectively, lost their lives the same day, 11 April 1830 at Sahland, Ohio as they accidentally fell into some | liquid mash and were drowned, after which this business was discontinued. About 1830 David moved away to | Monterey, Fulton Co. Il and soon after to Canton, Il where he bought out the only business concern, beoming therefore the second | merchant in that place, which has since developed into a bustling city. he entered Fulton Co. IL in teh prime at about the age of 32 and | became prominent in the affaris of the state. He was judge of the County Court and such rode the circuit of that county in those days | with Abraham Lincoln and Stephen A. Douglass. 1 or 2 of these is quoted as having said that "Judge Markley can eat more sauerkraut | and pull more voted that nay other man in Fulton County". he also seved a term in the State Senate of IL. | "The markley Relationship" By Joseph Milton Markley 1923: He laid out three additions to the town of Ashland and with each | addition, he deeded a lot or square to the town to be used as a public square or park. After the Civil War, his son Ephriam went back | to Ashland from Illinois to see about these parks. In David's deeds it was stipulated that if at any time these parks or squares ceased to | be public property, they would then revert back to the original owner of his heirs. Sure enough he found that one of these blocks was | still used as a park; one had a church bult upon it, and the other had been appropriated by a doctor, who had built a nice residence on | it. Ephriam did not distub the church people but went to the doctor wh offered several thousand dollars for a quit claim deed from | David's heirs. The terms were contitionally accepted but the deed never was executed on account of one of the heirs refusing to sing it, | so that accroding to our informant, David still had a claim there.....Everett Eugene Markley of St. Louis says: "I remeber my | grandfather David for I was about 14 yrs old at the time of his death in 1870. I can recall the day of his death. it was on a Sunday in | the summer time and I rode on horse back to Canton to summon his son Philemen, my uncle, to his bedside. He arrived the next day, | but too late to see his father alive. I often heard my grandfather, David, tell about his being one of a family of 12 boys and each having | 2 sisters, trying in a jocular way to convey to his heareres that there were 24 girls instad of 2." Everett further relates that David told | him that when he was a small boy, to the effect that Davids mother, Susannah markley lined him and his eleven brothers up along the | side of the house and whipped them with an ox whip when there wer almost young men. They were suppsed to be working in the field | in the summer time, but were jumping, wrestling and goot racing and when they heard the Couch shell blow or signal for dinner they | all wet their shirts in the creed or river to fool their mother but she was spying upon them and was to smart for their game. | married Susannah Fadely 1812 in Salisbury, Somerset, Pennyslvania b: 3 Aug 1791 in Salisbury, (Elk Lick Twp) Somerset, Pennyslvania | |-Polly Markley b: 12 Mar 1813 in Salisbury, (Elk Lick Twp) Somerset, Pennyslvania | |-Isabelle Markley b: 15 Jul 1817 in Salisbury, (Elk Lick Twp) Somerset, Pennyslvania | |-Julian Markley b: 13 Dec 1824 in , Ashland, Ohio | |-Bolivar Markley b: 20 Apr 1827 in , Ashland, Ohio | | | |-Charlotte Markley b. 6 Oct 1814 in Salisbury, (Elk Lick Twp) Somerset, Pennyslvania d. 14 Feb 1896 in , , Iowa | | Note: "The Markley Relationship" by Joseph Milton Markly 1923: lived in Campaign Co.

Flog hill got its name because John and another man laid claim to the same land and the deal was settled by a bout of "fisty-cuffs". John Markley won. "John's Fancy was his favorite and became his home.In 1785 a tract of 300 acres was surveyed to his wife Eve. All the lands except John's Fancy, were located on the west bank of Castleman's River. The records show that John Markly lived in Somerset County as early as 1772. The treaty of Fort Stanwickin 1768 opened the land to settlement as it had previously been Indian land.In the history prior to 1768 a number of settlers had penetrated the land and werecalled trespassers. John Markly was one of these. In 1788 John sold John's Fancy for five shillings to his son Joseph. He sold Grassy Run and Mount Joy to his son in law Jacob Keagy.

Joseph Sr. was a tall man and weighed 260 pounds. whilethe boys, with the exception of AAron, avewraged six feet and three inches in height and 250 pounds. It was a rare thing to find such a family of giants,and many of the older citizens related to feats of strength performed by these pioneers, indicating that they were wonderfully blessed by nature in matter of health and strength. Joseph and his wife were buried on Markley land. In 1788 Joseph bought John's Fancy and in 1794 he laid out the village of West Salisbury upon this land. In 1815 Joseph sold his holdings in Pa. and moved to Montgomery Twp. and on to Annapolis, Crawford Couty, Ohio in 1824. It became Sulfur Springs in 1890.

Death: AFT. 21 FEB 1627 in London, Middlesex, England Note: 8/20/99: My response to Mary Anne: Mary Anne, I appreciate your warning; however, his daughter married a Grissette and I have the documentation for that. The son, I believe died rather young though I have no proof of that. I do not claim descendancy from either of his children. In putting together the Stallworth and Perryman documentation I found WBT. It had long been a rumor in our family that my gr gr grandfather, Julius Joseph Pressley, was a cousin of WBT of the Alamo. When I found out his mother's maiden name everything fell into place. Perhaps over time, my documentation may not prove out -- but so far it has. Again, I appreciate your information and will add it to my database as a warning to others who may want to look at what I have found. Nanci 8/19/99: From Mary Anne C. Rick: Nanci, Be careful of claiming descent from WBT of the Alamo. I know two in-depth researchers, Albert E. Casey and Marty Hirons, who say both of WBT's children died young. The information I put up last night on WBT's descent from John Grigsby is not recognized and you will note that no children are shown for Charles, son of WBT. I've seen this in my own family - claim of descent from a famous person - in my case Henry Clay the statesman. It's even on one tombstone! Henry was a very distant cousin. These stories get passed down in the family and become the accepted truth when often the actual lineage is more interesting. The lack of documentation of the children of John Travis (1713-?) makes things hard. I have no solid proof that my Martha (1736-1829) was the d/o John and probably will never have anything more than an educated guess. Such is the nature of genealogy. Between the fires Gen. Sherman set on his tour of the South and the burning of old wooden courthouses, much of our heritage has been lost. If there were any family Bibles, they seem to have been lost as well. The information I gave you that agrees with the new book seems pretty solid. It represents recent research by a man who is kin to Gen. Travis and who set out to prove Gen. Travis' work. He couldn't. For those of us who descend from Dr. Edward Travis of Bath, NC, our line changes very little. We are descended from William rather than Edward, both sons of William and Agnes (Lathom) Travers. We can still trace our lineage back to 1066 in the Travis line and through the Lathoms back to the dawn of history. I know how you feel at this point. The Clay line seemed so 'taken care of' and then I couldn't prove the family stories. It all turned out fine, but sure took alot of digging. I have quite a bit of information I gleaned from Prodigy back in the early 1990's. I'm in the process of going back, using an Ahnentafel, checking each generation. I've been over the Travises before! New information is coming to light all the time. MA Information on William family from FTM Vol 27 #2942. WFT 5-0082: William Travers of Nateby and Tulketh, Arm. was born July 1563.

Information on William III's family from FTM Vol 27 #2942. 6/3/2000: From Edith Wilson at edithandbob@aol.com: In reference to William Travis (Travers), I copied from the Garland Library from "Cavaliers and Pioneers, abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants, Abstracted by Nell Marion Nugent, and Indexed by Claudia B. Grundam, Vol. II 1666-1695, Virginia State Library, Richmond 1977. It shows : Mr. William Travers, 2650 acs., N.side of Rappa.Co., 27 Feb 1667/8, p.112. 2250 acs. granted to Mr. Thomas Cherwood & George Hassellock & by them assigned to sd.

I am copied this from p. 31 the Patent Book No. 6 With what Bill Walraven put in his notes, would this be Wm Travers, III who was born in 1624( County Cork Ireland) died 1685 in North Carolina. Wife was Sary West. Then in Anson County, North Carolina, Abstracts of Early records, Compliled by May Wilson McBee., Baltimore Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc. 1980 I found which I copied a William Travis #4852-16Nov. 1790. This was page 21. I wonder if this Wm Travis was a brother to John Travis(1715-1809) his wife was Elizabeth Wilson. His Brothers were Wm Travis and Thomas Travis? Food for thought? What you are saying is that Wm, Sr. never made it to America, but Wm, Jr. did? That is the way I understood it. Isn't this a puzzel? I guess that is what makes this so much fun?

When they reached their new farm home, they found it a swampy tract covered with forest, but Casper cleared it off and built a log cabin of one room, doing all the work himself. It had rounded poles and no nails were used because nails were too expensive. Later their larger home was built and eleven children were brought up there."

Edward Wright. This was the German Reformed Church at Shippensburg. This was a list of Communicants eight days before Pentecost, on May 24, 1800. It listed Michael Maack and wife Susanna Charlotte. Does any one know if this is the Michael Mock, Son of David and Elizabeth (Bowser) Mock and grandson of Peter Mock of Bedford Co, PA? This Michael Mock was married to Susanna Biesel. I thought that the latter Michael Mock was associated with the Church of the Brethren faith, and these records seem to be from a Reformed Church. Also I thought it of interest that the name of Bouser was also associated with the estate of Johan Nicholas Maak of York Co, PA whose 1756 will I posted yesterday to MOCK-GEN-L. <> Date: Tue, 31 Dec 1996 12:06:38 -0500 Reply-To: "Mock, Mauck Genealogy Discussion Group" Sender: "Mock, Mauck Genealogy Discussion Group" From: Steve Lapp Subject: Re: PA, Cumberland Co, Michael Maack Ron - That is Joh.

Steve by the Golden Gate Date: Wed, 1 Jan 1997 19:14:24 -0500 Reply-To: "Mock, Mauck Genealogy Discussion Group" Sender: "Mock, Mauck Genealogy Discussion Group" From: Paul Swan Subject: PA, Cumberland/Franklin, Michael Maag Ron, Thanks for the Communicant's record for Michael Mock and wife Susanna Charlotta Waltz. Did you by any chance copy down all of the names listed? Michael Mock (abt 1744 - bef 15 Oct 1813) of Franklin Co., PA has been identified [Burgert, 1983] as the Michael Maag of Ittlingen, The Palatinate (now Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany) who married in nearby Adelshofen and emigrated in 1764. The evidence to support such an identification apparently consists of the wife's given names in the two records. The emigrant Michael Maag's wife was Susanna Charlotta (Waltz), while Michael Mock, in his will, named his wife as Susanna Charlotte. I accept this identification tentatively on the basis of that limited evidence, and the fact that their ages, in so far as they can be estimated, are compatible. Note however that we as yet have no record of Michael in this country between 1764 and 1798, so this is cause for considerable concern in such an identification. In various documents the name in the first generation is spelled Maag (in The Palatinate), probably Mag (signature on immigration, but readable only as May), Mack (in the 1800 census), Mauk (on a land record and in administration records after his death), Mock (as written in his will and final accounting of his estate) and Mug (his signature on that will). For the second generation, by the time they had moved to Ohio, the family name was consistently spelled Mock. According to the Adelshofen Lutheran KB [Burgert, 1983], Joh. Michael Maag from Ittlingen, single, and Susanna Charlotta, daughter of Georg Heinrich Walz, citizen and weaver, were married 8 May 1764. The record goes on to say that "Michael and his wife, along with Johannes Seiz [Seitz] and his bride [who were married on the same day] left 8 days later to go to America". Burgert also reports, presumably from the same Kirchenbuch, that Susanna Charlotta Waltz was born 6 Oct 1746, daughter of Georg Heinrich Waltz. Finally, she notes that Michael emigrated 1764 on the 'Richmond', citing Strassburger and Hinke and noting that his name appears on the list as Michael May (in this she was almost right -- the given name however is clearly written Michauel) along with that of Johannes. Barbara, citing notes from Caral Mechling Bennett, identifies Johannes Seitz as a half-brother to Susanna Charlotte through her mother's first marriage to J. Andreas Seitz. Johannes and his wife Anna Catharina Ribb/Rueb brought with them to America the illegitimate, sixteen month old son Ludwig/Lewis Welck/Seitz of his cousin Dorothea Welck. It is known that Lewis married ca 1788 in York Co., PA, and this may give a clue as to where the Seitz's and Maags might be found during that time. Laurie Aubrey provided me with family group sheets with citations, census transcriptions, and copies of will and land records on Michael. Working charts for both Michael and Johann Welck were given to me by Barbara, based in part on Aubrey, but adding new material.

I believe that Mary Mock Parr may have been her great grandmother. The obituary does not name Mary's parents, siblings or even all of her children, but she believed Mary A. Mock's father was Michael Mock who was married to Elizabeth, which was shown on a cemetery card in the possession of Mary A. Mock. Mrs Anderson pointed out a conflict in evidence received from another Mock researcher, a Mrs Glenna Kiner Baptist of Stamford, CT, who had evidence that the wife of Michael Mock was a Grace Whisner. She did not have an answer for this and wondered if maybe her full name may have been Grace Elizabeth Whisner. The Michael Mock referred to here is thought to be Michael Mock, Jr whose father lived in Franklin County, Pennsylvania as Michael Mock, Sr, and whose wife mentioned in his will was Susanna Charlotte. The only two children noted of this Mary Mock Parr was an Effie Bickel, grandmother of Mary Anderson and Effie's sister, Mary Ellen Mettle noted in the obituary below. Mrs Anderson lists the children of Michael and Elizabeth Mock, all born in Franklin Co, PA as: 1. Michael Mock 2. Elizabeth Mock 3. Catherine 4. Jacob b. 3 Oct 1841, d. 26 Mar 1888 m. Catharine Markley 5. John (remained in PA) 6. Samuel 7. Joseph 8. Mary A. b. 14 Dec 1858 and d. 26 Dec 1906 m. William Parr 9. Unknown 10. Unknown 11. Unknown 12. Unknown [it is not certain if the order of birth was correct, but Mrs Anderson had only the names of 8 of the known 12 children] I also have a copy of the will of Michael Mock, Sr. of Franklin Co, PA which was proved on 15 Oct 1813, and copied by Glenna Kiner Baptist, which I would be happy to either post or abstract if anyone is interested. <> Listowner and Moderator MOCK-GEN-L rmoore@cybergate.com __________________________________________ JOURNEY TO OHIO MADE BY WALKING Mrs Mary Mock Parr, who died last week, [died 26 Dec 1906] Walked as Child from Pennsylvania Found Forest and Swamp Where Columbus Stands -- Many Early Hardships. Trudging at the side of a wagon which contained all the family's worldly goods, the only means of transportation in the early day, Mrs Mary A. Mock Parr, who died Wednesday, then a girl of 5 years, with her father and sisters, traveled, in 1827, all the way from Carilsle, PA, to the village of Columbus, where she was to make her home for nearly 80 years. Mrs Parr was the last to die of a family of 12 children. After being an invalid for several years she fervently prayed and asked her sister to pray with her that she might die on Christmas day. Death came to her by 8:30 the next morning. Many were the interesting anecdotes that Mrs Parr would relate of early Columbus, as it appeared when she first came here and settled near what is now Linden. Often had she told how, on that eventful and difficult trip to this city, her father managed to secure food for them on the way by shooting game, and how they relished the milk they received from a cow which they drove with them. Not Much of a Town There was little of Columbus in those day, but a flourishing town existed west of the Scioto river, known as Franklintown. What is now known as North Columbus was then only a forrest, and subsequently became a corn field. What is now the east part of the city was a swamp, and in many different parts of what is now the business portion of the city, blackberry patches flourished. The very spot where, for the last few years, she had made her home with her daughter, Mrs George Mettles, 721 McAllister avenue, was then a part of a large farm. Often have her relatives listened to her stories of olden times, when she would relate how they wore the "linsey" dress, which people of that day considered their Sunday clothes, and of how proud they were of them; of how they wore the blue Dutch goods for aprons. She would tell of times when their shoes had only three eyelets and how often, when people were poor, they got along with no shoes at all. Wenenever making comparisons of the early Ohio days with the present days of the twentieth century, Mrs Parr would declare that those living now did not have the hardships of early times. Often would she declare that the present days were the good days in which to live. Learned Milinary Trade. Soon after Mrs Parr left school she entered the Snowden millinery establishment in the Nell block, where the Nell house now stands, and learned the millinery trade. In those days the establishment was quite a noted place as the proprietor managed a hotel in connection with his millinery establishment and lodged and boarded all his girls. Two of her younger girl friends, Misses Katie Smith and Sarah, now live at 199 South Ohio avenue. Miss Sarah Smith is a principal in the Columbus public schools. Mrs Parr is said to have had a remarkable memory. She could distinctly recall when her father obtained the right of way in 1835 and constructed the Mock road, which is named after him. For many years Mrs Parr attended services with her parents in the Old Town Street Methodist Church. Forty years ago she transferred her membership to the Third Street M.C. Church. <> --------------------------------------------------------------------- Visit the MOCK FAMILY HISTORIAN Home Page at: http://www.cybergate.com/~rmoore/mock.html Explore the Mock/Mauck/Mauk/Mack archives at: http://home.ease.lsoft.com/archives/mock-gen-l.html --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, send the command (without quotes) "SIGNOFF MOCK-GEN-L" to LISTSERV@HOME.EASE.LSOFT.COM.

Mock (m. William Parr) whose obit you refer to in your query. Mary "Effie" Anderson was my cousin. My research indicates: Michael Mock m. Margaret {generally believed surname was Whissinger/Whisner} about 1797 in Pennsylvania. I have only been able to confirm her first name as "Margaretha" and have, as yet, been unable to locate any record of marriage for this couple. They had ten children I can document: Susanna Charlotte (b. 1799), Elizabeth (b. 1800), Michael (b. 1800/1810), Margaret (b. abt 1804), Catherine (b. unk), Samuel (b. 1818), Jacob (b. 1815), John (b. unk), Joseph (b. 1819), Mary A.(b. 1822) -- possibly Henry & George were additional sons. After Margaret died, Michael, in 1851, m2) Catherine O'Ferrell in Franklin County, Ohio [see DAR transcripts -- marriage record 5/347 Franklin County Probate Court]. There was no issue. The records at Greenlawn Cemetery for Mary Mock - Parr indicate that her mother's name was Elizabeth. My best guess is that someone erred in giving the information to the cemetery. There is no evidence that I can locate to indicate her mother was anyone other than Margaret. It would be an easy mistake to make (I misquoted my father's middle name on my marriage license!!).

If so, is she still living at the same address as in 1984? This obituary for Mary A. (Mock) Parr also has her picture, although the one I have is not very good quality. It appears to be from the Newspaper, and appears to be a copy of some other copies. Someone in the family probably still has the original. Maybe John Grace may have evidence that her name was Margaret E. Whissinger. If so, maybe the "E" stood for Elizabeth. A logical place to look for her name would be the grantor deeds in both Franklin County, PA and Franklin County, Ohio, if they sold any property before she died, to see if her name is listed. Have any of you found a will for Michael Mock, Jr? Also, since Michael remarried in 1851, I wonder if Margaret may have still been alive in 1850 and in the 1850 US Census? I now see that I did make a major error in my last message, on the date of birth of Jacob and Mary A Mock, children of Michael Mock, Jr. I listed the birth of Jacob as 3 Oct 1841 and Mary A. as 14 Dec 1848 and these are obviously incorrect and should have been the marriage dates and not the birth dates. I did not have a date of birth for any of the children on the chart that I have from Mary Anderson. Thanks for calling this to my attention, Laura Toms. Also, Laura Toms, on your list, you have Samuel listed twice. Does everyone agree to the date of birth of this Michael Mock, Jr as being 12 Oct 1764? That means he would be 63 when he brought his family to Ohio and 89 when he died. This would seem reasonable, but does anyone have the source for his date of birth? It is possible he may have put off moving until the death of his mother who may not have been able to make the trip. Again, the 1850 US Census of Franklin Co, Ohio would be helpful here to confirm his age. Also, this Glenna Kiner Baptist which I have mentioned and who has actively researched this line would appear to be a cousin of yours, Laura Toms, since she is also descended from Elizabeth Mock and Casper Kiner. In a letter from Glenna Baptist to Mary Anderson, she lists the 10 Kiner children with the year of their birth. I will not put that list up unless you request it since you no doubt already have that information. Maybe you would like to put it up because your information may be more complete than mine. Glenna is descended from John Kiner born in 1841 and who married Pauline Amanda Denune. He was her great grandfather. If you do not have Glenna's address, I can send it to you. I am not sure it is still good since this was in 1983, but I believe she has been a member of the Mock Family Historian, and Barbara Dittig can probably tell us if she is still active. Also John Grace noted that Susana Charlotte Mock, wife of Michael Mock, Sr was Susanna Charlotte Waltz and I believe he is correct on this. There is evidence they were married in Germany 8 May 1764 and left for America eight days later. (that would be an interesting honeymoon) Michael Mock, Jr must have been their first child. Also it would certainly appear to me that Johann Michael Mock is the same as the Michael Mock listed in the will below. This would conform to the common German practice of the middle name being the name that they commonly went by. I was going to post a copy of the will of Michael Mock, Sr which was translated by Mrs Glenna Kiner Baptist of Stamford, CT. I was going to scan it but my scanner is not working right now for some unknown reason, so I will type it since it is only a couple of pages. _____________________________________________________________________ 1809 WILL OF MICHAEL MOCK, SR OF FRANKLIN COUNTY, PA Franklin County--on the Fifteenth day of October in the year of our Lord One Thousand Eight Hundred and Thirteen, John CLIPPINGER, one of the witnesses of the foregoing testament of writing appeared before me the subscriber Register for the probate of Wills and granting letters of administration in and for the County of Franklin who upon his solemn affirmation duly administered deposeth and saith that he was present and saw MICHAEL MOCK, now deadwrite his name unto and heard him publish the foregoing instrument of writing as and for his last will and testament and that at the time of doing thereof he the said deceased was of sound and disposing mind, memory and understanding according to the best of his knowledge and belief that his name thereto subscribe as a witness is of this deponants own proper handwriting done at the same time and that he also saw FRANCIS HERRON, the other witness, sign his name and cosign at the same time.

Signed and Acknowledged to be my Last Will and Testament in the presence of John CLIPPENGER and Francis Herron. To all whom it may concern, I, Joseph SCOTT hereby decline taking upon my self the Executorship of the Last Will of MICHAEL MOCK, dead, Test my hand and of. Nov. AD 1812. ___________________________________________________________________ Appreciation expressed to Glenna Kiner Baptista for the translation and transcription of this will. ___________________________________________________________________ One other issue that I would like to raise, is who is this grandson Henry Mock mentioned in the will of Michael Mock, Sr? Although Michael Mock, Jr was the only other male heir mentioned in the will, I would doubt that he is his son since only $1.00 was left to him. It appears the main intent of the will was to leave everything to his widow with the exception of his youngest daughter where he appeared to leave her more than the rest. It would be my suspicion that this Henry Mock may have been the sole surviving heir of another son of Michael and Susanna Mock who may have been already deceased by the time this will was written in 1809. If he intended to leave a special legacy to this grandson, it seems to me it would have been substantially more than $1.00. I am not a legal expert, but this seems to be the way I read it. I wonder if we may have any lawyers subscribed to this list who may want to comment on this? It is my suspicion that someone may have presumed that this Henry Mock was a son of Michael Mock, Jr since he was the only other male Mock to appear as a child of Michael Mock, Sr. Am I right on this, or does someone have evidence to the contrary? Michael Mock, Jr appears to have had other children who were born before the death of his father, Michael Mock, Sr in 1812, so why was this Henry Mock singled out over the others for a meager $1.00, when there were other children of Michael Mock, Jr who were born before the death of Michael Mock, Sr in 1812? Again, some may say that a dollar was worth much more then than today, and I will grant that, but the leaving a person $1.00 in a will seemed to be a standard practice to recognize that person as a potential heir but not leaving him anything substantial. Later on someone might come back and say that he forgot to list him in the will, therefore this way, it would seem to make it harder for someone to challenge the will. I wonder if this Henry Mock didn't go with Michael Mock, Jr to Ohio and I also wonder if this may be the same Henry Mock in the list of children by Laura Toms? I have also studied over the working charts of Barbara Dittig for Michael Mock, Jr, which she has compiled from multiple sources, and she has eleven of the twelve children of Michael Mock, Jr. She has his wife as 1. Margaret Grace Whissinger who died 14 May 1850 in Clinton Co, Ohio and 2. Catherine O'Farrell. The children of Michael and Margaret were: 1. Susanna Charlotte Mock 2. Elizabeth Mock 3. Henry Mock (she has noted, not on L. Aubrey's list) 4. Michael Mock 5. Catherine Mock 6. John Mock 7. Jacob Mock 8. Samuel Mock 9. Joseph Mock 10. Mary A. Mock b. 14 Jan 1822 in Franklin Co, Ohio 11.

The following items were received from these members. 1. in 1798 Michael Mauk Sen. of Southhampton twp. Freanklin Co PA, for $99.67 bought land from John Culberson (L.Aubrey). >From V.

At the time of her family's sojourn from PA to OH, Susanna Charlotte, the dau. would have been 27/28 yrs. old, however the above referenced church record provides the only background to her connection with the Michael/Margaretha Mauch family. No clue to her adult life. A brother, George (Mauck)Mock seems to have escaped the recording pens of history: no inscribed birth records or of his adult life. However a FranklinCo.

Similar library index card for other members of that family whose residence there has been proved lend a smattering of support to my theory concerning George. 1.5 - Michael Mock Jr. >From Laurie Aubrey 1806 - Michael Mock Jr. purchased for $1800 a tract of land known as Emsworth (Southamton Twp., FranklinCo,PA 1824 - Michael Mock purchased for $527. 100 + acres in Southampton Twp. Note: None of these deeds mentions his wife & I have nocopies of deeds showing the sale of PA properties. Michael married a Catherine O'Farrell in 1851. Joseph vouched for him. Interesting to note: in 1836 James O'Farrell & wife Catherine sold a farm to Michael Mock Jr. 1.5.4 - Michael Mock II - s/o Michael & Margaret, b. ca1800/1810 PA. Note: in my chart someone gave me the information that this Michael married Catherine O'Farrell.in 1851. I don't believe this is accurage (B.D.) 1.5.8 - Samuel Mock m. ca 1836 Catherine Boyer b. 1 Mar 1819; d. 14 Jan 1846; m. (2) Mary Ann Keyes. Samuel & Catherine had 4 children: John Leroy Mock, MaryA. Mock, George W. Mock, Michael Fletcher Mock. When Catherine died, Michael Mock & wife, (Parents of Samuel) took John & MaryA. Mock. An Aunt, Mrs. Sarah Mock Vorhees took Fletcher Mock. Uncle Joseph Mock took George Mock. Samuel & Mary Ann had 6 children. They were: Wm. Humphrey Mock, Angaline Mock, MaryCaroline Mock, Alice Mock Orlando Mock & Leaphart Mock. This family moved to Anthony, Harper Co., KS. Note: I am in the process of putting together an article for the next newsletter regarding this family and another Mock family from North Carolina. Both families went to Anthony, KS and there is some confusion over who belongs to whom. B.D. Mary A. Mock Parr, the youngest child of Michael & Margaret - Obit. 30 Dec 1906 - Came to Columbus, OH at age 5 with her family. Was the last to die of 12 children. They walked all the way from Carlisle, PA. She recalled when her father obtained the right of way in 1835 and constructed Mock Road, which is named after him. I'm in the process of updating my "working chart" for this family. Still a lot of unanswered questions and blanks to fill in.

She died in 1988. I am trying to contact one of her children who I believe is still residing in the Columbus area. The obituary for Mary Mock Parr appeared in the Ohio State Journal of 30 Dec 1906. Yes, the picture is dismal and I've had no luck in getting anything clearer. The Columbus Dispatch also carried an obit for Mary -- 27 Dec 1906, page 10. No picture and quite brief. If there is an original copy around I'm unaware of who might have it -- again, if I can connect with Mary Anderson's son, perhaps in her papers. . . If Margaret was alive in 1850 I haven't located her. Michael Mock was living with Joseph Mock, his son, in Clinton Twp in 1850; age 86. Without going thru every family record, I believe I have obtained census records for each of the 10 children I can verify and no Margaret with any of them. If Henry & George are also children, she may have been there. Most folks working on this line believe she died 14 May 1850. I don't know the source. No will has been located in Franklin County, Ohio for Michael Mock, Jr. I'm guessing the land he owned may have been transferred to his children in earlier years. A search of the deeds would help confirm/deny this. The dates of birth/death for Michael & Margaret were obtained from Vern Wright of Columbus. Evidently he transcribed them from an old family Bible in the possession of another descendant. Who, where, when, etc I could never ascertain. I tried to locate a burial place for these two thru the Clinton Twp clerk -- nothing. No record at Greenlawn; nothing in the Franklin County Cemetery books. Regarding the children of Michael & Margaret: There are some who believe this couple had 12 children. Mary's obit is often cited as that source. But I quote from her obit: "...Mrs. Parr was the last of a family of 8 (EIGHT) to die of a family of 12 (TWELVE) children..." Something of a conflict. I've spent years working on this line and while I certainly don't have all the answers and don't claim to be an expert I can only confirm 10 children. The names show up in various obits, county histories, etc with an attempt to confirm parentage with death records, cemetery records, etc. Laurie --------------------------------------------------------------------- Visit the MOCK FAMILY HISTORIAN Home Page at: http://www.cybergate.com/~rmoore/mock.html Explore the Mock/Mauck/Mauk/Mack archives at: http://home.ease.lsoft.com/archives/mock-gen-l.html --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, send the command (without quotes) Subject: [MOCK-GEN-L] George Mock of Franklin Co, OH Date: Sun, 8 Mar 1998 18:57:15 -0700 From: laubrey Reply-To: "Mock, Mauck, Mauk, Mack (Germanic) Genealogy Discussion Group" To: MOCK-GEN-L@HOME.EASE.LSOFT.COM To all, Is it possible the George (Mauck) Mock Barbara referred to was not the son of Michael but the son of Samuel Mock & Catherine Boyer? This couple had a son, George W. b. abt 1843. Catherine d. 1846 leaving 4 minor children to be cared for. Since case #2066 is a Guardianship perhaps this is the George referred to?

Dont know whether you've gotten corrected info from anyone yet, so I thought Id throw a few things at ya: Mathij Jansen Van Keulen is the name of the subject. 1622 doesnt work as a birthdate, since he signed (as 1 of 19 Lord-Directors) the original charter of the Dutch West Indies Company on 3 Jun 1621, and became Patroon of Zawaanendal in 1635. He was actually christened 2 Feb 1601 at the DRC of London, father Jan Mathijs Van Keulen. Actual birthdate is unknown. I would hope that Mathij and Margriet Hendrickse were married long before 1644, since daughter Catryn was born 1640, Fort Orange, N Y. First generation after Mathij used only the surname Matthyssen (Matthysz in the Old Dutch Church records) All of the Matthyssens(children and grandchildren of Matthys Matthyssen) and Thomas Jansen (son of Jan Matthyssen) changed to Van Keuren in 1716. Matthys Matthyssen was born in 1648 at Fort Orange, same year His father, Mathij, died. (d.16 Oct, 1648, as recorded in the Journals of Killaen Van Rennsalaer). He died in 1730, at Wildwyck. Mathij owned land at KingsBridge, not to be confused with Kingston. He also owned land at Harlem, near his Brothers land (Conraet Jansen Van Keulen). The wildwyck estate at Kingston was actually purchased in 1668 by Matthys and Brother Jan. I have a copy of that court record. If you have questions, or would like to know more...just e-mail me, anytime. I have copies of Legal documents from 1621, church records from 1660, and a mound of miscellaneous. D G Van Curen aka Van Subject: Re: Van Keulen Date: Wed, 6 May 1998 22:39:38 EDT From: Vancuren53 To: jtgrace@slip.net Where do I start. First, my files arent from gedcoms, I have the research documentation to back me up. I have copies of court records back to 1632, copies of Dutch West Indies papers to 1621, Old Dutch Church records from 1660, and many misc. records including family wills. Mathij Jansen Van Keulen was baptised at the Austin Friars Dutch Church in London on 2 Feb 1601 during a family trip. Mathij became one of 19 original Principle Partner Lord-Directors of the Dutch West Indies Company in June, 1621. The original Document bears his name. He was named Patroon of Zawaanendal in 1635 after the death of Sam Godyn. Somewhere between 1635 and 1638 he arrived in New York to take charge of Zawaanendal. His name appears twice on a shipping manifest of the West Indies Raven on 27 Jun, 1639, sending consignments back to Holland. Also, on the Crew list of the Raven are two of Mathij's brothers, Klaes and Cornelis. A third brother, Conraet, owned an adjacent land parcel to Mathij at Harlem, Manhattan. They owned 50 Morgens each(however much a Morgen is), according to the Land Patens. Mathij also owned land at Kingsbridge and Fort Orange. He married Margriet Hendrickse, who was the first child christened at Fort Orange in 1624(birth likely much earlier, probably in Holland), in 1639 or 40...first child, Catryn, was born in 1640. Last Child, Matthys, was born in 1648, same year his father died. (died 16 Oct 1648, Fort Orange, according to the Journals of Killaen Van Rennselaer, Mathij's business partner). >From 1660 on I have full dates taken from Church or Court records. I have Subject: Re: Van Keulen Date: Fri, 8 May 1998 08:23:22 EDT From: Vancuren53 To: jtgrace@slip.net Looks good from where I am sitting. couple of FYI's: Tjaatje Charity Dewitt was one of the children taken by Indians, at the raid on Kingston in 1663. She and sister Jannetje were later rescued by soldiers who overran the Indian encampment on the Esopus. I have a copy of her fathers will, and of the land record where he received permission to build his home in 1669...a house that still stands, today. Marytjen, christened Matthyssen, as were all of this line who were born before 1716, married Jan Masten. I dont have marriage info on Elizabeth Masten on file and it doesnt appear to be in the Kingston RDC book. If I knew what church to look in, I could check it, to be sure. I have most of the Ulster County Church registers, and could develop these lines a bit better, but my focus has always been on the Primary line. Side families, i usually only take 2 or 3 generations. Anything you need on the Van Keulen/Matthyssen/Van Keuren/Van Curen line, just ask...I probably have it...wills, court records, church records, etc. Most of my names and dates I got from actual records, rather than from other researchers. I can tell you the name of the church where Mathij was christened in London, the date he signed the Dutch West Indies charter, and the date his brother Klaes was charged with theft and publicly whipped. My family tells me this research thing has become an obsession, and they are probably correct. But, I am writing a book on the family genealogy, and I don't wish to publish a bunch of errors, I want it to be right. And I like to help others in their endeaver to "get it right", as well....let me know.

It workedthis way - Eleanor GRACE married Robert TRAVIS, Jr and they ended up inMarion, OH. Then their daughter, Nancy TRAVIS married Harvey Clark andhad Nancy Ann Clark. She married John Switzer CUNNINGHAM and they movedin 1863 to Woodland, CA. and my family has been floating around thestate ever since.:-)) Sure wish they'd bought a whole lot of land andstayed in one place, but oh well. :-))) Have you ever found a story/narrative or some such about themigration out of Rockingham? I didn't know there were so many familieson that trek, but it's sounding more and more like there must be somestory behind it all? Wonder if one of the Franklin Co, OH countyhistories might have one? My genealogy files are on a different computer, so I'm a littlelimited in what I can export. But if you can take a Rich Text Formatfile as an attached file or a GedCom file, I'd be happy to send you whatI have. I should tell you that most of the research has come from otherfolks on-line, but I keep bumping into more and more of us :-))) Can you export a GedCom? That would be absolutely terrific. Or aRich Text File? Please let me know.Regards, Carolyn John W. Grace wrote: > > Carolyn, thanks so much for your response. I just recently discovered my > connection to the Rockingham Graces.

JoAnnubject: Grace/Lehr Date: Tue, 08 Dec 1998 18:52:01 -0800 From: Richard & Carolyn To: "John W. Grace" Hi John, I'm sure hoping you came thru the power outage unscathed today! We had a momentary flicker - with both computers on. But everything seems to be okay and I'll hope yours are also. You are far too modest about your database! I can only imagine what the full thing must look like. :-))) Like you, I have a whole bunch of sorta-relations on mine, so I tried to limit the Gedcom to what I know of the Grace and related families. Am sending it separately as an attached file. It's no doubt way more than you ever wanted to know once it gets into the Cunningham bunch. (Eddy Clark CUNNINGHAM is my gr-grandfather) I only had a couple of Lehr/Lair folks - I knew they must hook up somehow, but didn't know about Catherine and her marriage to Benjamin. So I had only collected a couple of stray bits of information. Actually, I didn't know about Benjamin, nor that James Grace had a son. Since you exist :-))) obviously he did! Following is what little I had on them. You might want to contact Win Wood about these Rockingham folks. I've not heard from her for quite a while, but she's really terrific and was/is a marvelous researcher. She travels a lot, so may not respond right away. It'll take me a bit to "connect the dots" on what you sent, but this will really help. Many thanks, Carolyn FIRST GENERATION 1. Ferdinand, Sr. Lair (Lehrer) was born in GERMANY.

Grace" John, none of the names are my branch of the family tree as far as I know. Do you have a copy of the book which Harry A. Brunk compiled back in the late 70's or early 80's (available at the Rockingham County Historical Society) on the Brunks? My copy is currently on loan to someone, but I believe the title was "Jacob Brunck, the Willmaker" or something very close to that. It gave me more information than I have ever had on the various families of Rockingham County Brunks who stem from one of three brothers who came to the US in the late 1600's. My brother, Lloyd Sandy Brunk, is a physician out your way--in Napa; I believe Brunks have settled in areas throughout this country, although I have never actually met another one personally! I'm in Columbia, SC, where we've been the only Brunks in the phone book for 50 years (at least)! Thanks for your email. _____________________________ Sara Brunk Administrative Assistant Choral Department School of Music University of South Carolina 813 Assembly Street Columbia, SC 29208 Phone: 803-777-5369 Choral Department Fax: 803-777-4586 ============================================================================================================= THE BACKGROUND from http://www.shawhan.com/local_root_folder/Lair_history.html The story of the Lairs is the story of America. It is the story of a peace-loving people living centuries ago on the banks of the Rhine, tending their vineyards and their flocks until a great religious war shattered that peace. It is the story of their crossing the Atlantic in a sailing vessel; of their landing in Pennsylvania and their home life there; of their moving on into the fertile valley of Virginia and then moving on again over Indian infested trails to the Blue Grass region of Kentucky. From the landing of the first Matthias Lair two hundred and twenty years ago to the present day, this family of ours has spread to the forty-eight states, crossing plains and mountains in covered wagons to Oregon, California, Colorado and Texas, and has played a great part in the building of this country. The story begins with Matthias Lehrer, or Lair, a sturdy young German born in the Rhineland in 1714, who sailed on "The Nancy," William Wallace Master, landing in Philadelphia in 1738. On the same ship came Catharina Margaretha Moyer, said to be an heiress, and it was whispered that her father, Will Moyer, was bringing her to this country to avert an undesirable marriage The poor father died on shipboard and was buried at sea, leaving Catharina to face life alone in a strange land. Immediately after the ship landed, Matthias took the Oath of Allegiance to King George II and fidelity to the Penns, as the English Sovereign required of all male Germans and other foreigners within forty-eight hours of arrival. He also took the Oath of Abjuration which was required in 1729, renouncing the temporal power of the Pope of Rome and the claims of the Pretender and he paid twelve pence and forty shillings for the privilege of entering Pennsylvania. The British authorities required all ship masters to fiat male passengers, giving their birth place and birth date. According to their records Matthias wee twenty-four years old, was born in the Rhineland and landed in 1738. We, his descendants, are grateful for this information as it enables us to follow his footsteps through the intervening years. It is not surprising that the passengers of "The Nancy" tarried in Philadelphia for a time as it was a pleasant city and was filled to overflowing with Germans, so the late arrivals found friends while studying the country and finding their way about. Nor is it surprising that our lonely young Germans, Matthias and Catharina, should fall in love and marry in 1744 in their own church, nor that the Register of St. Michaels and Zion Church should record the baptism of the four children born to them during their stay in Philadelphia. Recorded in German, it is as follows: September 15, 1745. Johan Juwua Lehrer, son of Matthias and Catharina Margaretha. Born September 12, 1745. Sponsors, Josua Duer and wife Elizabeth, Johannea Ahlgeyer and wife Margretha Catharina. December 18, 1747. Catharina Margretha Lehrer, daughter of Matthias and Catharina (Reformed). Born November 5, 1747. Sponsors, Jurg Heppele and wife Margretha. February 18, 1750. Andreas Lehrer, son of Matthias Lehrer, and wife Catharina Margretha. Sponsors, Andreas Beller and wife, Catharina. April 6, 1752. Matthias Lehrer, son of Matthias and wife, Catharina, born February 15, 1752. Sponsors, Andreas Beller and wife, Catharina. As they had property in York County, Pennsylvania, it is good to know that Matthias was prospering. The tax list shows that he was possessed of land, cattle and horses in 1779. ============================================================================================================= from: http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/k/n/a/Laurence-E-Knarr/GENE6-0012.html Child of Jacob Brunk and Anna Stauffer is: 370 Daniel Brunk, born Abt. 1779 in Washington Co., MD; died 1851 in Norwich Twp., Franklin Co., OH; married Margaret Grace January 01, 1797 in Rockingham Co., VA. 742.

Neither was I acquainted with the Amvet Village which came after I started working at what is now Wight-Patterson AFB. Now that I am back on line your Mock info is intriguing and shows that some of it may have been from the Mock Family Historian. I can say that in recognition of my tenderfoot beginning in research when I did not always have the facts straightened out when I beamed the info to MFH. So without an admission of guilt on my part I will send an updated Family Group Record for Michael mock/Margaret Grace Whissinger family showing as much as I have about their whole family of twelve(12). The updating will also include any new info you are showing in your e-mail. The misnomer reference to Revolutionary Service is just that with Michael Mock's birth on 10-12-1764. May our pen pal/e-mail friendship show the way to our own special connection wit our common Mock line. I will be sending you copies of my family group records pertaining to the Mock family referred to above as well as their ancestors such as I have. They will follow by regular mail. Sincerely, Vern O.

Mr. John W Grace Jan Parsons of the Hilliard United Methodist Church gave me your address. She stated that you were looking for the same genealogical information that I was seeking. She suggested I contact you and that you could give me whatever she gave to you. My great, great, great grandfather James Elliott was born in Sherman. Valley Perry County, PA. He supposedly served in the Revolution. His son Robert, born in 1774 married Nancy Black, They migrated to Franklin County, Ohio. Nancy died and Robert then married Susanna Brunk, daughter of Daniel Brunk. David Mitchell Elliott was the youngest son of Robert and Susannah. David Mitchell married Minerva Adams. David Mitchell and Minerva Adams were my great grandparents. My immediate goal is to find evidence to prove that I am eligible to join the Sons of the Revolution. I have two missing links in the proof. Knowing I am eligible and proving it are two different things. I need to find records that prove that Robert Elliott was the father of David Mitchell and that David Mitchell Elliott was the father of my grandmother Mary Alice Elliott Bell. I doubt that Sue Parsons gave you the information that I wanted from her, but that is no reason why we can't share information on the Brunks, Harts, and Grace families. In April I received some infor from Sue Conway. She mentioned that she was corresponding with John Grace in Oakland Calif. I assume you are the one referred to by Sue Conway.

The idea that James Elliott was the father pf the Robert Elliott born in 1774 came from "The Centenial History of Columbus and Franklin County Ohio." The article begins on page 102. It is the biography of one Daniel Elliott. The article states that Daniels father was Rober Elliott, born in Sherman Valley, Perry County, PA in 1774.. The biography states that Daniel's grandfather was a James Elliott born and raised in Sherman Valley, PA. Daniels grandmother was Jean Hart. According to the biography James Elliott and Jean Hart had the following children, Robert (the eldist), William, John, Sally, and Betsy. Betsy Married William Nelson. Robert Elliott had six children with his first wife Nancy. They were James, William, Robert, George, Nancy, and Polly. Robert and his second wife Susan Brunk had Sally, Samuel, Margaret, Eliza, Jackson, Daniel, and David. Susan Brunk married James Nelson son of Betsy and William Nelson. James Nelson was 7 years younger than his wife Susan Brunk Elliott.

David Elliott Bell, Sr. and Florence had a son (me) David Elliott Bell, Dir (me). My sister has David Mitchells family Bible. I have a copy of the will of a Hugh Hart that mentions his daughter Jean Elliott, James Elliott's first wife. This doesn't mean that Jeans husband was a James.

THE HEADS OF THE HOUSEHOLD HAVE BEEN GIVEN SPECIFIC IDENTITIES SO AS TO DISTINGUISH ONE FROM THE OTHER. IE: JOH MICHAEL MAAG (MAG), MICHAEL MAUCK/MOCK.

THAT THE FATHER BECAME KNOWN AS MICHAEL SR. AND THE SON AS MICHAEL JR. IS VERY COMMONPLACE. THE WILL GAVE THE SON AND FOUR DAUGHTERS FAMILY STATUS.

WHEN IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT MICHAEL MAUCK /MOCK HAD A WIFE, MARGARET GRACE WHISSINGER AND TWELVE CHILDREN YOURS TRULY CEASED THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO IN SEARCH FOR EVENTS OF BIRTH & MARRIAGE.

I had a hot tip that *maybe-perhaps* Robert Travis, Jr ( who married Elenor GRACE, dau. of James) was the son of Robert, Sr. and Phoebe L'Estrange. You'd think that one (given Phoebe's last name) would be a slam-dunk. Wrong! So haven't checked any further. Has anything turned up on James GRACE, father of the various "girls" -- Elenor, Mary, Margaret, etc.? That would be a neat thing to find.

I only found my Lair or Lehrer connection on Sunday so some of the information on the Andrew and his family I pulled off of the GenForum and some from the internet. I am sending you a copy of what I have on my family at the bottom of this message. I have a question about the information on Matthias' oldest child, Joseph. The information which is on the internet has Joseph being born seven months before Johan and in a different area. Most of the older children of Matthias were born in Philadelphia and Matthias and his wife were married there. Why would they go to Virginia to have the oldest child and then back to Philadelphia to have the next one seven months later? Do you have any thoughts on this? I am still looking for information about my Betsey (Elizabeth) and Thomas Pope's children. So far, I have only been able to find my connection and that is through a copy of Betsey's marriage record. Betsey was married to a Brady before she married Thomas Pope. I am not sure if that will help you with connecting lines or not. I do not have the first name of her first husband, she is just listed a Betsey Brady. Andrew and one of her brothers are listed in the record with her. Do you have any idea where they got the information that Betsey died in MO? I have information from one source that says that Thomas Pope married wife number two in 1834 and that he married his niece. I am going to have to do some more research and see what is going on. Let me know if there is any more information about my line that you would like. As I said I just found my connection to Andrew's wife and ancestors on Sunday so I have not had much time to do any more research. I will talk to you again later.

In your last e-mail you asked me if I live in Hillard. No I never lived in Hillard, but my grandmother Mary Alice Elliott Bell and my great grandfather David Mitcxhell Elliott were born in Hillard. I along with my parents, three of my grandpparents and two of my great greeat grandparents were born in Columbus, Ohio. My parents brought me to Orange County , California when I was 2 years old. The geneological lineage I gave you is definitelly correct from the 1774 Robert down to me. I was in Columbus in .April. I wish I had been awaear o f I was hoping to find out three things in particular. 1. Was 1774 Robert’s father’s name realy James?. 2. Is it true that the father of 1774 Robert was a soldier in the revolution? 3. If 1774 Robert’s father was in the rovolution, was he granted land in Franklin . county and did 1774 Robert settle on part of his father’s grant?. If the biographt of Daniel Elliott Centennial Hisstory is correct the answer to the above is in the afirmitt. I we knew who furnished the information in the article we would have a good cllue to its athensicty. In about 1958 Daniel Elliott’s daughter, Nette Schrum died leaving no will and no known living decendennts. Her estate was divided between the heirs of her grandparents, one half the heirs on her paternal grandparents and one half to the heirs of her maturnela grand parennts. Her paternal grandparents were listed as Robert Eliiott, Nancy Elliott (roberts first wife and Sausannah Elliott (Robert’s 2nd wife. I still have a copy of the names of all the heir receiving part of the estate, Theire were 106 heirs on the Elliott half annd 57 heir on the wwwwwwwwyncoop side. The people listed with Elliott Surnames are Homer, Llucy, Jack R., Richard C., Harold E. Russell R., George T., Lawence D. , William Victor. William Victor and Lawrence D. were my grandmaoother’ brothers. My received about $600 which was given as 1/76 of the Elliott half. The law firm that did the genealogical researc took 40% right off the top. David Mitchell Elliott and his wife Minerva belonged to the Weslley Chapel in Hilliard.

Wright - Laurie Aubrey’s ongoing research centered on a book containing the records of the Reformed Church at Shippinsburg,PA in which he found that Michael & Susanna Charlotte Maluch were sponsors for the baptisms of Susanna Charlotte, 29 Mar 1799 and Elizabeth 30 Oct 1800, d/o Michael & Margretha Mauch. At the time of her family’s sojourn from PA to OH, Susanna Charlotte, the dau. would have been 27/28 yrs. old, however the above referenced church record provides the only background to her connection with the Michael/Margaretha Mauch family. No clue to her adult life - resided In PA or elsewhere: married and had family of her own. A brother, George (Mauck)Mock seems to have escaped the recording pens of history: no inscribed birth record or of his adult life. However a Franklin Co. Genealogical Soc. library index car bearing hisname & the followiing info: FranklinCo. Probabe Court, Case 2066, year 1849, Guardianship records: …is modest witness that he was one time a resident of that county in OH.

Michael Welck & Margareta Barbara Roecklin 1.8.6 - infant stillborn (Written in church book & book 700 Years Adelshofen) An illegitmate child was still born on 09 Aug 1744 to Michael Welck; the mother was Margareta Barbara Roecklin; see 700 Jahre Adelshofen pg 227-228. The marriage with Anna was separated/ divorced, Michael Welck must leave the land of Graf Neipperg. Documentation Notes from Caral Mechling Bennett Michael Maag and Johannes Seitz are both listed, as you know, as: “…in May 1764, eight days after their marriage, emigrated…” (and appear on the ship’s listed together). This info also comes from the book, 700 Jahre Adelshofen/ 1287-1987 . As the book states, there were times when the ruling factor of the area forbid marriages and births of children, so the young persons had no other choice, but to emigrate. I believe the reason for forbidding children and marriages at that time was the scarcity of land for division - on which new couples/families could settle. This is probably the main reason that Johannes took Ludwig (probably by birthright, a Welck, not Seitz) to America. Not only was Ludwig’s mother, Anna Dorothea Welck, not married, but having a child at that time, was forbidden…! And then there was the incident with her father [Michael - 1.8] (a tailor by profession)…see 1.8.6 Infant stillborn… seems there was a child born to a gal in the tailor shop, but neighbors didn’t know what became of it. When investigating, the authorities found the remains/bones of an infant buried in the basement……that they could not prove Michael Welck and the gal had committed any wrong doing, but banished them anyway. If I have the Welk/Welcks straight, this Michael Welck was a brother-in-law to Georg Heinrich Walz, being Susanna Charlotta Walz’s uncle and my 6th great grandfather…! C. Bennett 1.8.4 Dorothea Welck/Welk - There appears in the Adelshofen Evangelical church book this birth record: Dorothea Welck/Welk, (single daughter of Johan Michael Welck, a dairymaster &/or tailor, whose family livced and worked at the Dammhof near Adelshofen, a large tract of land and farm controlled by the Landlords, the von Gemmingen family), registered in the church records under the date of 05 January 1763, the birth of a son, Ludwig. The entry reads: (translation) Dorothea Welkin, the single daughter of citizen Johann Michael Welken; the father of her child (titles) Johann Philipp von Gemmingen from Babstatt, also single. Sponsors: Johann Ludwig Speck, fellow tailor, single, Anna Chatharina, citizen Christoph Fricken’s wife, Dorothea, citizen Conrad Stollen’s daughter.” I believe that Johan Michael Welck (1.8) was a brother to Anna Dorothea Welck (1.5), the mother of Johannes Seitz, the immigrant. This would make Johannes Seitz and Dorothea Welck, mother of Lewis/Ludwig, first cousins. Also that this child, Ludwig, born to first cousin Dorothea Welck , single, was sent to America with Johannes Seitz, simpligying matters in Adelshofen/ Dammhof, and giving him a better chance in life…his age would have been 1 year 4 months. Lewis Seitz: Who are you? In the 223 years since Lewis first arrived in America, his birth date and place had never been established. The familiear traditional story passed down over the years, is that Lewis sailed with his parents from Germany on board ship Richmond, arriving Philadelphia, PA in 1764. His sister, Catherine, was born 77 days after their arrival in America. In the will of Johannes (John) Seitz, he is called, “my son Ludwig”. Even at death, Lewis Seitz is a mystery to us . We can figure that he died CA 1820/22, perhaps in Washington Co.PA (Probate record - Seitz N.L. Vol. I #2, pg. 16) This flowery report of his last days: “Circa 1821/22 Lewis took a trip on horseback to Rockingham Co., VA and York Co, PA, preaching at the different Baptist churches enroute, and visiting his old home and relatives. Rev. Edward Seitz Shumaker wrote, ‘With these sweet memories to cheer him, Lewis started on his homeward journey, still preaching as he went,but God had other plans for His servant, for in Washington, PA, Lewis sickened, and in the land of strangers, perhpas alone with God --Good took him to be with him. We do not know the date of his death neither do we know of his burial place, and it is quite probable that his grave is unmarked, as he slumbers in that strange land, awaiting the resurrection of the just. ‘“ From the Probate records at Lancaster, Fairfield Co., OH : “Know all men by these presents, that we, Daniel Sites, John Hite, Jacob Beeri and Jacob Huber of the county of Fairfield and state of Ohio …… signed 21 May 1823 Listed in the newspaper, the OHIO EAGLE, dated 27 Oct 1825 -- notice was hereby given that the accounts and vouchers in the following estates were presented for settlement at the May term -- among them, that of Lewis Sites. ======================================================== Received: from imo21.mx.aol.com [198.81.17.65] by mx01 via mtad (2.6) with ESMTP id 942DgNwRu0127M01; Wed, 14 Jul 1999 22:17:20 GMT Received: from Amcclosk@aol.com by imo21.mx.aol.com (IMOv20.21) id xRLCa25600 (4231) for ; Wed, 14 Jul 1999 18:15:47 -0400 (EDT) From: Amcclosk@aol.com Add To Address Book Add To Junk Mail Blocker List Message-ID: Date: Wed, 14 Jul 1999 18:15:40 EDT Subject: Re: [Brittons] To: JWGRACE@netscape.net MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="part1_c64ab794.24be660c_boundary" X-Mailer: AOL 4.0 for Windows 95 sub 215 I'll attach my gedcom file.

Joseph supposely settled in Pennsylvania. Benjamin born Sept.11,1779 in Frederick Co. Virginia, died Sept. 26, 1860 in Hilliard,Ohio. Hosea was born abt. 1780 in Frederick Co., Virginia, married Rachel Taylor abt.1800 in Monongalia Co., Virginia.

Rev. Benjamin1 Britton He possibly was born 14 September 1779 in Fredrick Co., VA, and later married Elizabeth Grace, born 20 January 1780 in Rockingham Co., VA. [Information from internet forum, no reliable sources offered.] The following is from the History Of Franklin And Pickaway Counties (Ohio): "The first settlers in what is now [1880] known as Norwich Twsp. were Daniel Brunk and family, who settled half a mile south of the Hayden run, in 1807. Rev. Benjamin Britton settled on land, next south of Brunk, at the same time. He was a Christian, "New Light" preacher and early organized a church of that denomination. Members of the church, afterwards joined with the congregation at Dublin." This is believed to be the father of Benjamin Britton (1797-1868) based on Ben Jr's. marriage (when almost 19) to Elizabeth Brunk (aged 15½] in 1816 in Franklin Co. and the proximity of the two families as indicated in the county history. Rev. Benjamin and Elizabeth may have had the following children, but proof via original records has not been obtained: Elizabeth, John, Matilda, James, and Noah. [Information from internet forum, no reliable sources offered.] Rev. Benjamin Britton had the following child: + 2 i. Benjamin2 Britton was born 2 June 1797 and died 21 January 1868.

Elizabeth died 18 August 1854 in Sangamon Co., IL, at 53 years of age. When Ben was about 10 years old his family moved from Virginia to Franklin Co., Ohio. "He was there married, in April, 1816, to Elizabeth Brunk. ...... They had four children in Ohio, and moved to Indiana in 1824, and from there to Sangamon Co., Ill., arriving in Oct., 1825, in what is now Cotton Hill township, where they had seven children." It was remembered that "Benjamin Britton hired Nathaniel Duncan to haul a load of corn to Springfield, which would be a day's work for a team. The price agreed upon was $1.37 1/2. Twenty bushels was all he could haul. Mr. Britton went along to do his own selling. Arriving there, with all his efforts, five cents per bushel was the highest price he could obtain. He sold the load, paid over the whole proceeds, $1.00, but how they settled the other thirty-seven and a half cents, he does not remember. That was in 1836."

During the depression she helped make a large garden each year and canned all of the vegetables and fruit needed to feed herself and Edna and the boarders, William and John Lomax, and later, Hallie Johns, for the rest of the year. A coal-burning cook-stove was used to heat water (pumped from a cistern) for all washing and bathing. Even when there was little food in the house, she always fed a hobo who stopped and asked, and let them do a little work in return (they always volunteered). She greatly enjoyed baking and decorating fancy cakes. Nellie was a kind and gentle woman who was a devoted wife and mother and who raised one grandchild. After Edna died, she was sorely tried when she had to keep house for John James. She died as the result of a heart attack. His two-column obituary is partially quoted: ".... Mr. Britton has been in the employ of E.A. Vandeveer, deceased, and Major W.T. Vandeveer, since coming to Taylorville in 1891, later becoming cashier of the Vandeveer Bank. At the death of E.A. Vandeveer he was chosen to manage the numerous farm properties of Mr. Vandeveer's heirs. He was always prominent in the Methodist church of this city, taking an active part in all of the church's work. He was superintendent of the Sunday school, holding that office for the last twelve years. Mr. Britton was a deacon of the church and a member of the building committee. For many years Mr. Britton was honored by the presidency of the district school boards and was a member of the Taylorville library board at the time of his death. He served years ago as deputy under Sheriff H.W. Johnson. He was a member of the Hyperion lodge I.O.O.F. Amprehel encampment and the Rebekah lodge. Mr. Britton was born in 1860 near Clarksdale, receiving his education in a nearby country school, later teaching near Palmer and Stonington. ...... In the death of Ben Britton, Taylorville loses a most valuable citizen. Always good-natured, and charitable in his judgement of others he had made and held thousands of friends, who were shocked by his untimely death. He was all that could be desired in a city -- he was progressive, always on the right side of all public questions. ...... He was a high type of man and his place in the community cannot be filled."

"I attended St. James Catholic Elementary School in St. Louis, was graduated in 1935 with a scholarship to Ursuline Academy in Kirkwood. I was graduated from Ursuline in 1939 with scholarships to Webster College and Marquette University, neither of which I was able to accept because of financial restraints. At that time there was no such thing as a student loan, nor even high school counselors to guide and encourage. I had taken some commercial classes during my high school years and was able to secure a secretarial position with New England Mutual Life Insurance Co., where I worked until the outbreak of World War II at which time I went to work at National Bearing Division of American Brake Shoe Co. While employed there I attended night classes in philosophy at St. Louis University for two years. I did not pursue a degree and have regretted it ever since. The only other college courses I have taken were the three Art classes I took a few years ago. My mother saw to it that I had violin and piano lessons for a time in grade school, and I resumed the piano lessons after I began working. I stayed at Brake Shoe, moving up over the years from secretary to Priorities Administrator to secretary to the Division President. About six months after his first wife's death, Howard invited me out for dinner. We were married May 3, 1958 and had three girls. After Howard's death in 1966 (in Akron Ohio to which he had been transferred), I moved "home" and have been here at this address ever since. The children were 3, 4 and 5 when Howard died. I stayed home with them until Sally was 9 or 10 at which time I began working at my present office, which afforded me the flexibility in hours I needed to continue caring for the children, car pooling to get them back and forth to Ursuline, etc., and being home when they got home from school. I'm still in the same office. At age 65 I learned to operate a computer and enough accounting to handle the payroll and accounts payable for the school and church, about 45 employees. ... With a business college education my dad worked for the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad; then the Frisco Railroad, as a telegrapher, until the depression. After that he worked as a public transportation motorman until he retired. He was reared in Quincy, Ill. ... I have no facts about [my mother's parents] origins but seem to remember hearing about Kentucky as a child. My mother was reared in Iberia, Mo., the daughter of a carpenter."

Maude Ward Lafferty's and Helen Lafferty Nesbit's essay on the Lair family provides a fascinating history of the origins of Bourbon County, Kentucky. Because of its historical value, I have included the complete history. Researchers of the Lair family will find this an invaluable resource in tracing their family roots. Hopefully, this history will also prove interesting to family researchers whose ancestors are closely linked to the Lairs. Bob Francis -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE BACKGROUND The story of the Lairs is the story of America. It is the story of a peace-loving people living centuries ago on the banks of the Rhine, tending their vineyards and their flocks until a great religious war shattered that peace. It is the story of their crossing the Atlantic in a sailing vessel; of their landing in Pennsylvania and their home life there; of their moving on into the fertile valley of Virginia and then moving on again over Indian infested trails to the Blue Grass region of Kentucky. From the landing of the first Matthias Lair two hundred and twenty years ago to the present day, this family of ours has spread to the forty-eight states, crossing plains and mountains in covered wagons to Oregon, California, Colorado and Texas, and has played a great part in the building of this country. The story begins with Matthias Lehrer, or Lair, a sturdy young German born in the Rhineland in 1714, who sailed on "The Nancy," William Wallace Master, landing in Philadelphia in 1738. On the same ship came Catharina Margaretha Moyer, said to be an heiress, and it was whispered that her father, Will Moyer, was bringing her to this country to avert an undesirable marriage The poor father died on shipboard and was buried at sea, leaving Catharina to face life alone in a strange land. Immediately after the ship landed, Matthias took the Oath of Allegiance to King George II and fidelity to the Penns, as the English Sovereign required of all male Germans and other foreigners within forty-eight hours of arrival. He also took the Oath of Abjuration which was required in 1729, renouncing the temporal power of the Pope of Rome and the claims of the Pretender and he paid twelve pence and forty shillings for the privilege of entering Pennsylvania. The British authorities required all ship masters to fiat male passengers, giving their birth place and birth date. According to their records Matthias wee twenty-four years old, was born in the Rhineland and landed in 1738. We, his descendants, are grateful for this information as it enables us to follow his footsteps through the intervening years. It is not surprising that the passengers of "The Nancy" tarried in Philadelphia for a time as it was a pleasant city and was filled to overflowing with Germans, so the late arrivals found friends while studying the country and finding their way about. Nor is it surprising that our lonely young Germans, Matthias and Catharina, should fall in love and marry in 1744 in their own church, nor that the Register of St. Michaels and Zion Church should record the baptism of the four children born to them during their stay in Philadelphia. Recorded in German, it is as follows: September 15, 1745. Johan Juwua Lehrer, son of Matthias and Catharina Margaretha. Born September 12, 1745. Sponsors, Josua Duer and wife Elizabeth, Johannea Ahlgeyer and wife Margretha Catharina. December 18, 1747. Catharina Margretha Lehrer, daughter of Matthias and Catharina (Reformed). Born November 5, 1747. Sponsors, Jurg Heppele and wife Margretha. February 18, 1750. Andreas Lehrer, son of Matthias Lehrer, and wife Catharina Margretha. Sponsors, Andreas Beller and wife, Catharina. April 6, 1752. Matthias Lehrer, son of Matthias and wife, Catharina, born February 15, 1752. Sponsors, Andreas Beller and wife, Catharina. As they had property in York County, Pennsylvania, it is good to know that Matthias was prospering. The tax list shows that he was possessed of land, cattle and horses in 1779. As we become interested in them we involuntarily ask: "Who were they? Where did they come from?" In order to answer these questions we should read a few German histories, such as: Menzel's "History of Germany," "The Thirty Years War" by Schiller, "The Story of the Palatines" by Cobb,"The Book of the Rhine," by S. Baring Gould and Wayland's "History of Rockingham County, Virginia," and should also search court records. On the base of a famous statue at Bonn is the inscription: "The Rhine is the River, not the Frontier of Germany." It might have been said with equal truth that it is the river of Europe, for no other European river has played so great a part in human destiny. The struggle for its possession is the struggle for supremacy in Europe, which has lasted nearly 2,000 years and is yet unsettled, notwithstanding the price paid in blood in many wars. As early as 57 B.C., the mighty Caesar built a chain of forts, walls and palasades along its banks to make the Roman Empire impregnable. From its source in the Julian Alps to its mouth in the North Sea, it measures 750 miles. Its basin contains coal beds and minerals. It waters a region of great fertility and it is not only important from a military and strategic standpoint,but as a channel of commerce. It is the most direct pathway from Italy and the Orient to the British Isles and to Scandinavia and the wines of the Rhineland, the fruits and oils of the Mediterranean, the ivory and spices, Bagdad silks and India shawls that come by way of Cairo. Its fertility makes the Rhine Valley the garden spot of Europe. The alluvial soil affords fine pasturage and their cattle are held in high esteem. Among their exports are Edam and Limberger cheeses and Rhenish wine is acclaimed the finest on the continent. The vineyards carpet the steep banks of the river, terrace above terrace, for 350 feet. Some of these have belonged to one family for centuries. A recent article in the New York Times chronicled the death of Germany's oldest grape vine which had produced 75 gallons a year for over 400 years, The great cash crop of the valley is the Rhine wine. It's the "Nectar of the Gods" to the dilettante: The most famous is the Moselle and the Bacharach is made at Dinkelsbuhl where children wearing wreaths of grape leaves in their hair, playing guitars and mandolins, dance through the streets to celebrate the Vine Festival. The difference in flavor of Rhine wines is due to the quality of the soil and the dampness of the hillsides. The choicest portion of this super-wine is selected from the most exquisite clusters. In early summer when the vine is in flower the busy hands of farmer, wife and children pluck off the superfluous blossoms which are preserved and dried, to be cast into the wine press in the autumn to give aroma to the wine. In order to keep the soil fertile, the people carry the fertilizer up the steep river banks in baskets. Obviously the wine-growers love their vineyards, and we wonder why Matthias and Catharina Lair left them willingly to live in a faraway land. Envious countries sought to destroy these people and to usurp thelr fertile hillsides. To do so, they instigated The Thirty Years War. The Thirty Years War was a religious war between Catholics and the Protestants. It originated in Bohemia, reached into Moravia, Austria, Germany, France, as well as Denmark and Scandinavia. It devastated countries, destroyed harvests, reduced villages to ashes and opened graves for thousands of combatants. Yet, out of this war, Europe came forth free and independent, a community of nations, and this alone reconciles the philosopher to its horrors. Religion, only, could have made it possible. For the State or the Prince, few nations would have drawn the sword, but for religion the merchant, the artist, the peaaant, flew to arms. They became hopeful of success when that good man, Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, took up arms for the cause. He was the only prince in Europe from whom the oppressed could look for protection. He was the hero of the age, the greatest general of his time. Before a battle he knelt in prayer. Finally at the Battle of Lützen Gustavus Adolphus spurred his charger too near to an exposed point and there received the bullet that took his life. His men rallied when they beheld his riderless steed and fought more viciously than ever, but the die was cast and when they knew that their great leader was dead, they had no recourse but to sell their homes, salvage what they could and set sail for America. The Lairs, natives of the principality of Palatine, known to history as Palatines or Palatinates, deeply religious, appreciating freedom in churches and in schools, fled their Rhineland following their participation in The Thirty Years War and made their long and hazardous trek to a new home and a new life in America. William Penn, an English aristocrat of great learning and vast wealth, had received from his sovereign in payment of a debt, certain lands in the New World, called "Sylvania." His King, with a twinkle in his eye, added the prefix "Penn" making it Pennsylvania. Penn was a Quaker who had the courage of his own convictions. Pennsylvania needed settlers, and he believed the Palatines would make good citizens. In order to be sure, he made a missionary tour of the Rhine which convinced him that he was right and the result of his labor was the great exodus of the Palatines to Pennsylvania. It proved to be an ideal arrangement and between 1730 and 1750, more than thirty thousand Palatines found homes in a free country where they could live in peace and happiness. It was not long before a second migration followed to Pennsylvania which gave that state the name of Little Germany. Great numbers settled in Philadelphia and Germantown, or Brocks Gap, bringing with them the same fine attributes for which they were known in their native land. They changed their names. Dewitt became Dwight, Groen became Green, Gouldschmidt became Goldsmith, etc., and by this means Americanized their names. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY OF VIRGINIA After the birth of their first children, our immigrant ancestors, Matthias and Catherina, decided to establish their permanent home in the rich Shenandoah Valley. They purchased several extensive tracts of hundreds of acres, each on Linville Creek, near Brocks Gap and Raders Meeting House in Rockingham County. Their neighbors were old friends, the Chrismans, Bowmans, Hites, Kizers, Cassels, Millers and Custers, some of whom were related by marriage. In this ideal community four more children were born to Matthias and Catharina; Elizabeth, Mary, Margaret and John. In the Shenandoah Valley they reproduced the homes they had enjoyed in the Rhine Valley, building them of stone with tile roofs, a huge chimney in the middle sometimes eight feet in diameter which made fire in every room possible and at minimum cost. Instead of grates, they used quaint stoves of tile, much like those still to be seen in German cities. Their barns were reproduced from the "Switzer barns" of the Rhineland, They were always built on a hillside with foundation of stone to provide warm stalls for the live stock. The second floor was for hay or grain. On the up-hill level there was always a huge revolving door, wide enough for a team of horses to drive in with a wagon, unload and drive out in turnstile fashion. The barns were of log, put together with wooden pins as there were no iron nails to be had. Scarcely were the Lairs settled in their new home until they were swept into the current of the Revolutionary War. Matthias and Catharina were too old for service, but according to the Militia vouchers of Rockingham County, 1788, the record shows slaves and horses given by them to help the cause, which designated them as patriots. Living was difficult during the Revolutionary War but they managed to get along. Catharina's granddaughter stated that she "made frequent trips on horseback to Philadelphia to obtain little luxuries necessary to her comfort," though that city was 260 miles from her stone house in the valley of Virginia. She even worked at the loom,which was the abomination of the pioneer housewives. In these days when we can buy our clothes and household linens from the stores all ready for use, it is difficult for us to realize how those grand old women wove and spun and sewed without machines. But Catharina met her emergencies face forward and played her part, according to the bits of family tradition handed down to us. One of the first household articles set up was the cumbersome old loom. It sometimes found its abiding place in one of the main rooms,but more often in a shed or an attic room. Sometimes there was a "loom house" set apart for it. Weaving, spinning and carding, were duties assigned to the women of the household. The mother usually took the weaving while her daughters did the spinning and spooling. During the spring months the loom was busy with making rag carpets, while in the fall, it was used for making the requisite amount of clothing and linen for the household. Jeans, usually grey, used for suits for men and boys, linsey in chestnut browns, dull blues and scotch plaids, were the materials used for the wearing apparel for the women and girls. Towels and counterpanes were made during the fall. The flax used was grown in a little patch near the house and was harvested by the women. My mother, Helen Lair Ward, who grew up at "Boscobel" at Lair, Kentucky, told me that the flax was so pretty when in flower that her mother (my little grandmother Kittie) would lift her up on the back fence and say: "Helen, dear, look away over there across the Licking River at your grandmother's flax patch. Isn't it the prettiest blue you ever saw? She says that is Rhine blue." When grandmother Kittie was a girl she asked for a flax wheel and as she was left- handed, it had to be made especially to meet her needs. It is now used to hold magazines and newspapers and is handy as well as a cherished keepsake. Sometimes the loom would turn out "kivvers" or coverlets, that highest form of the weaver's art. Every mother desired that each of her children should have one of these treasures of her skill as a wedding gift, and proud indeed is the housewife who owns one today. The wool blankets were also made on the loom. They were all wool and warm as toast. The one I inherited is light in weight and warmer than any present-day double blanket. These quaint old relics and the old carpets not only taxed the ingenuity but the artistic taste of the weaver and many a mother was famous for her "coloring" secrets. The coloring matter was largely vegetable and had to be boiled for hours before the rags could be immersed and hung on the fence to dry. Someone has calculated that in weaving three yards of close woolen cloth regarded as a day's work, the shuttle was thrown 3,000 times the tredle pressed down and the batten swung the same number of times. Our ancestors loved their home in the Shenandoah Valley and I have heard my mother and Cousin Dink Smith tell how their grandmothers used to sit on the banks of the Licking in the moonlight and talk in undertones of the glories and beauties of the Shenandoah homes and often tears coursed down the furrowed cheeks of Sallie Custer Lair as she sang a plaintive old song in which every verse ended in a wailing refrain "in the Shenandoah Valley." Some writers contend that the German element was not good for this country generally because it constituted 70% of the entire population and living isolated upon their own farms marrying and intermarrying as they did adhering to their own language publishing their own books writing their songs and conducting their religious services in German, they remained a separate and distinct people. Others however maintain that German thrift and religious zeal set a good example in every section where they located and that they gradually became so noted for their fine farming and staunch morality, that they commanded the respect of all. This was as true of the Holland Dutch who settled New York as of the German element in Pennsylvania Virginia and Kentucky. Matthias and Catharina Lair had for neighbors in their Shenandoah Valley home the Custers, prosperous store-keepers of Brocks Gap and also the Ruddles, Moyers, Huffmans, Rushes and Newmans. They all lived near their church, Raders Meeting House, which served as church, school and community center. Raders Meeting House, which was remembered by Catharina in her will, was built of logs in 1762. When it was organized, Adam Rader and Alex Painter deeded three acres of land to be used for a church. As that was more ground than was needed for a church building, the presumption is that it was intended for church, school and cemetery for members of the congregation. It was replaced by a more pretentious log building in 1806 and so the members of Raders Meeting Houee sent their children there to school and when they married, held the wedding ceremony in the same building. The school was taught by the preacher who opened it with prayer at eight o'clock in the morning and dismissed at six o'clock in the evening, allowing one hour for intermission. He taught them reading, spelling, writing, arithmetlc, grammar and geography. On Sunday they sat in the same seats while they listened to his sermon. The school had very severe rules. It did not allow games of any sort, nor were any "scholars" allowed to wear ruffles or "powder their hair" but they were allowed to work in the garden for recreation if they so desired. Matthias Lehrer (or Lair) died in 1787, aged 73, leaving his property to his wife who outlived him about 12 years. Her will, dated July 9, 1799, was probated in January, 1804. It is found among the burnt records of Rockingham County, Virginia, Will Book A, Page 80. After the usual formalities, she left a small sum to her church, Raders Meeting House, made arrangements for the freedom of her body servant, "Rebecca, daughter of Jude," then continued: "I give and bequeath unto my several sons and daughters, viz; my son, Joseph Lair, my daughter, Catharina Newman, my son, Andrew Lair, my son, Matthias Lair, dec'd or his heirs, my daughter, Elizabeth Trumbo, dec'd or her heirs, my daughter, Mary Ruddle, my daughter, Margaret Custer, and my son, John Lair, all my personal estate to be equally divided among them agreeable to quality and quantity. "After payment of the lawful debts and funeral expenses, I do hereby constitute and sppoint my well-beloved friend, Henry Stolph, executor of this my last will and testament and do hereby disallow all other former testaments, Wills, legacies, bequests, and Executors by me in any way before named, willed or bequeathed, ratifying and confirming this and no other to be my last will and testament in the presence of us and the presences of such others hereunto subscribed over our names, ninth day of July, 1799. (Signed) Catherine Lair witnesses James Barnett Benjamin Yount Frederick Prises Rockingham County. Probated January, 1804 In this document she anglicizes their names for the first time, also writing Lair instead of Lehrer. She even signed her name Catherine Lair. She had indeed become an American. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE WILDERNESS ROAD Three sons of Matthias and Catharina Lair, Andrew, Matthias and John, served in the Revolutionary War. There was a great deal of talk about the Wilderness of Kentucky where the rich farm lands were tempting farmers to settle in spite of the Indians on the warpath. Andrew, the oldest of the three brothers, took the lead and prepared to follow Colonel Benjamin Logan over Boone's Wilderness Road to Kentucky which Boone described as "a second Paradise." The importance of the Wllderness Road cannot be over-estimated. The English speaking colonles stretched like a ribbon along the Atlantic coast from Maine to Florida and the colonials were beginning to need more land. The only available territory unoccupied by Indlan tribes was Kentucky, whose fertility and desirability had been heralded by fur traders, The land seekers became obsessed with a desire to possess it. The opening of the Wilderness Road and the Revolutionary War were simultaneous. The pioneers came to Kentucky by tens of thousands over the rough, narrow path. In some places it was necessary to travel single file and even a horse had to pick its way. Creeks had to be crossed, or dry creek beds used for roads and laurel thickets had to be cut away before even a horse could travel through. The pioneers felled the forests, planted crops and played a most conspicuous part in the Revolutionary War by protecting their own interests and the back door of the seaboard colonies at the same time, so that they could give their undivided attention to the British on the eastern shore. With George Rogers Clark, they captured "Hamilton the Hair-buyer," the British commanding general at Detroit and conquered the Northwest Territory, out of which the great states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and part of Minnesota were later carved. Though would-be settlers had striven in vain to gain a foothold in Kentucky, the real settlement came through the Transylvania Company. This group of hard-headed, moneyed men of North Carolina, gathered the Overhill Cherokees at Watauga in 1775 for a powwow that lasted twenty days and finally succeeded in purchasing their claims to Kentucky, including the path," for the nominal sum of $50,000. Looking about for an experienced woodsman to lay out the road, they selected Danial Boone, who believed himself the instrument of Providence, foreordained for that purpose. It was a wise choice. This natural leader of men, fearless, strong, resourceful, had spent many months in exploring the land and he knew it well. Boone and his party, familiar with the land, crossed tbe Cumberland River without difficulty, an achievement not attained by any who followed them. The Cumberland, like many mountain streams, became a torrent after a bard rain and the current was swift. Out in the middle of the stream, firmly planted by Divine Providence, was a huge boulder, known to the pioneers as the "Ford Rock." This was their water-gauge. If it could be seen above the swirling water, they knew they could pass over it safely; if, however, the "Ford Rock" could not be located, the settlers dared not attempt to cross, even though they might be pursued by savages pressing hard upon them. There is no more human study of the Wilderness Rood than that contained in Calk's diary. Minutely he describes the events of each day, telling how "Abram's dog's leg got broke by Drake's dog," how "Daniel Drake bakes bread without washing his hands," how "Abram's mare ran into the river with her load and swam over and he followed her and got on her and made her swim back again," how "at Richland Creek they had to tote their packs over on a tree limb and swim their horses over," how "they turned up a creek that they had crossed about 50 times," etc. But bravely he came along and brought his instruments with which he surveyed Boonesborough. The first addition to the garrison of Boonesborough was Colonel Richard Henderson and members of the Transylvania Company "to the number of 30 guns," who followed Boone's Wilderness Road. Coming with them was Benjamin Logan and his party. He left the Transylvanians at the Rockcastle River, however, and followed an older trail to the present site of Stanford, Kentucky, where he established Logan's Fort, eleven miles beyond Crab Orchard. Twenty miles away was Harrod's Fort which was considered "the end of the trail." With Benjamin Logan came Andrew Lair. Colonel Logan made his first trip to Kentucky in 1775 and, with his friend, William Galaspey and two or three of his slaves, built his fort a mile from the present city of Stanford, Kentucky. He called it Logan's Fort, but some people called it St. Asaphs Fort. There they raised a crop of corn in 1775. Next year, 1776, he brought his wife and family and the rest of his slaves and his cattle. He placed his wife and family in Harrod's Fort, however, until he could make his fort safer for them. Logan's Fort filled up quickly with settlers who, less cautious than he, had brought their wives and children along. On May 20, 1777, in the early morning while the women were outside the fort walls milking the cows and their husbands were guarding them with guns loaded, a hundred Indians attacked them and during the attack a man named Burr Harrison was shot and fell. The others succeeded in getting into the fort in safety. The agony of the wounded man, his cries for help and the distress of his wife, were too much for Benjamin Logan and notwithstanding the danger of almost certain death, he dashed out of the fort gate, picked up the wounded man, threw him over his shoulder and ran with him into the fort, while bullets whizzed around his head. That was characteristic of Benjamin Logan who was recognized as one of the bravest and also one of the kindest men in pioneer history. He was a man's man, tall, handsome, courageous, a born leader and Andrew Lair made no mistake in following him. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LIFE IN THE FORTS The Kentucky forts were built in the form of a parallellogram, their site determined by the location of a good spring. Trees were cut down and the logs neatly picketed and set in a ditch or trench which had been dug the adze and shape desired. When the logs had been rammed tight, they made a solid wall from nine to twelve feet high, impervious to rifle fire and to the arrows of the Indians but not to cannon. The blockhouses, or bastions, built at each of the four corners, were two stories high and extended over the lower story about eighteen inches so that no enemy could make lodgement under the walls without risk of enfilading their fire. The cabins were built against the inner walls of the fort. They had clapboard roofs and slab doors hung on deer thongs, which served as hinges. The windows were covered with oiled paper or oiled doe skin as there was no glass to be had. All the cabins opened into the enclosure. The beds in the forts were constructed by forcing forked sticks into the earthen floor, running poles through the forks and between the logs of the wall, and stretching buffalo skins tightly over the frame work. Bedding consisted of homespun sheets and blankets, quilts and coverlets. In very cold weather bear skins or elk skins were added for warmth. The floor coverings were also of animal skins. Cooking was done at the open fireplace with spits, pothooks and kettles. Tables were made of slabs of wood into which pegs were driven for legs. Noggins, piggies and bowls were neatly turned and pewter plates and horn spoons were considered luxuries. In these forts friends found friends, neighbors sought former neighbors, kith and kin banded together in pre-empting land and soon built homes of log and stone outside the protecting enclosure of the fort. When danger threatened, a messenger was sent from home to home to warn the settlers to gather their families and a few necessaries and flee to the friendly fort. Not daring to light a candle, they hurried noiselessly through the savage-infested woodland to the friendly fort. Even the dog of the pioneer was trained in silence lest his bark betray his master's whereabouts to the wily savage. Such were the conditions under which the wives of Benjamin Logan and Andrew Lair, and thousands of others, lived during forting days. Many of the women had been accustomed to comfortable living and were, therefore, able to substitute many items at hand for the things they needed in their daily lives. At the beginning of the Revolutionary War there were only three forts, Harrod's, Boone's and Logan's, but by its close there were sixty forts, stretched like cities of refuge along the Wilderness Road and the Buffalo Trace, into which settlers "coming in" could spend their nights in safety and then proceed on their journey by day. The attack on his fort had convinced Benjamin Logan that he did not have sufficient ammunition to withstand Indian warfare. He was needed at his forts but he also knew the fort could not survive without gunpowder. The nearest supply was 200 miles away at the Holston settlement, far beyond the mountains. Selecting two trusty helpers, he slipped out of the fort as soon as it was dark and avoiding the Cumberland Gap and the travelled ways where Indians might intercept him, he went afoot at full speed up the steep mountain sides and down into the dark valleys until he reached the Holston. He procured the gunpowder and lead and left it for his trusty helpers to carry back to Logan's Fort while he hurried homeward alone, reaching there just ten days after he had left. When Logan built his fort in 1775, what we now know as Kentucky was West Fincastle County, Virginia. It was a vast tract of desirable land with a few scattered forts here and there, too weak to take care of themselves and too far from Williamsburg, Virginia, their seat of government, to secure aid in time of need. Some sort of organized government was urgent and the first step taken was to divide the unwieldy tract into smaller areas and to appoint a reliable officer to be responsible for it. Therefore Fincastle County, Virginia, became Washington, Montgomery and Kentucky counties. In 1780 Kentucky County was divided into Jefferson, Lincoln and Fayette. John Floyd was made Colonel of Jefferson County, Benjamin Logan Colonel of Lincoln County, and John Todd Colonel of Fayette County, while General George Rogers Clark was Commander in Chief, appointed by Virginia. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DESTRUCTION OF RUDDLE'S FORT As settlers became more numerous, the Indians were more determined than ever to drive them out of their "Happy Hunting Ground" and their atrocities were more severe and terrifying. The Indians were aided by the British who resented George Rogers Clark's conquest of the Northwest Territory and raised an army under Captain Henry Byrd of the Eighth Regiment of His Majesty's forces. This army of 1,000 men, consisting of British Regulars, Canadian Volunteers and Tories, came on June 22, 1780, to capture Ruddle's and Martin's Forts. The British came from Detroit and the Indians from their Ohio towns, they crossed Lake Erie, came down the Miami and the Ohio Rivers, paddled up the Licking and reached Ruddle's Fort just at daybreak and announced their presence by cannon fire. It was the first cannon shot fired south of the Ohio River. The forters were asleep but knew instantly what it meant. Captain Isaac Ruddle protested in vain but the savages dashed into the fort, tore the baby of Mrs. Ruddle from her arms and threw it into the fire, tore wives from their husband's arms, tomahawked and scalped men, women and children and adding the prisoners to those they had captured at Martin's Fort four miles away, drove 470 men, women and children, loaded down with plunder from their cabin homes, to Detroit, a distance of 600 miles. There they were divided among their captors and some were taken 800 miles farther to Mackinac and on to Montreal. The story of their capture, of the separation of families, of hardships endured during the six weeks journey and of the conditions under which they lived during the fourteen years of their captivity is one of the most shocking in the pioneer period of Kentucky's history. Mad Anthony Wayne's Treaty of Greenville set them free. In executing their plan, they waged the War of the American Revolution on Kentucky soil, for they came under the command of a British officer, flying the British flag and demanding surrender in the name of his Britanic Majesty, King George III. Captain Byrd made official report of the expedition to Sir Frederick Haldimand, the British Lieutenant General who was then Governor of Canada. This battle of the Revolutionary War was fought on land now known as the Matthias Lair farm and is where the Lair Association holds its reunions. Ruddle's Fort stood in the hollow pasture back of the house at "The Cedars" and it was Cousin Eliza Lair who erected the monument that marks its site on the banks of the Licking River. It is fitting that the Lair Association should commemorate the tragic event by holding reunions on June 22, or the first Sunday thereafter. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- EXPEDITION AGAINST CHILLIC0THE By way of retaliation, George Rogers Clark called all fort commanders to collect their troops and rendezvous at the mouth of the Licking, march in a body to the Indian towns of 0ld Chillicothe and Piqua and punish the Indians so severely they would not be able to make forays into Kentucky again. Boatloads of soldiers came from Louisville on the Ohio, others floated down the Ohio and the Licking. Then Clark gave the signal, the largest army of Kentuckians in pioneer history landed on the present site of Cincirnati and marched through the virgin forest to take the Mad River Indians by storm. Many historians including Collins, McClung, J.F. Smith, Mann Butler and Kerr, have described those battles and disagreed widely. Since Andrew Lair was a soldier under Benjamin Logan and was one of that army of 970 men, it seems advisable to describe it, giving the account by Theodore Roosevelt, the distinguished historian and soldier who had access to the best source material available. According to him: "Clark realized that he would have trouble raising an army of volunteers and the first thing he did was to close the Land Court and the next was to station armed men at the Crab Orchard, the point from which those returning to Virginia gathered as they were well armed for protection over the dangerous Wilderness Road. The soldiers were ordered to stop all men from leaving the country and to take eway their arms, if necessary as four-fifths of all grown men were drafted and needed immediately for the expedition against Chillicothe. "Logan went with Clark as second in command and carried with him a light three-pound gun on horseback. They began the march on the second of August in a drizzling rate, every night they encamped in a hollow square with the equipment and horses in the middle. "After their fifty-mile march, they found Chillicothe deserted and burning, so they pushed on to Piqua on the Little Miami, arriving at about 10 o'clock in the morning of August 8. "Pique-town was strongly built like all French towns. The stout log houses were far apart and the strip of land between them was planted in corn. A blockhouse with loopholed walls stood in the middle. Round about was a woodland. "Clark divided his army into four divisions, taking command of two of them in person and giving the other two to Logan. He ordered Logan to cross the river above the town and take it in the rear, while he crossed directly below and assailed the town in front. "Logan did his best to obey the orders but he could not find a ford and marched three miles upstream making repeated and vain attempts to cross, When he finally succeeded, the day was almost done and the fighting was over. "Meanwhile Clark plunged into the river and crossed it at the head of one of his own two divisions. The other was delayed for a short time. Both Simon Girty and his brother were in the town with several hundred Indian warriors. They were surprised by Clark's swift advance just as a scouting party of warriors were returning to the village. The warning was so short that the squaws and children had barely time to retreat out of the way. As Clark crossed the stream, the warriors left their cabins and formed in some thick timber. A long-range skirmish ensued with the warriors in the timber, but in the approach of Clark's second division the Indians fell back. After a slight running fight of two hours, the whites lost sight of their foes and wondering what had become of Logan's wing, they gathered together and marched back toward the river. The scattered detachments now sat down to listen for the missing wing. "After half an hour's silent waiting, they suddenly became aware of the presence of a body of Indians that had slipped in between them and the town. The backwoodsmen rushed to the attack, while the Indians whooped and yelled defiance. There was a moment's heavy firing, but as both sides carefully sheltered themselves behind trees, there was very little loss and the Indians steadily gave way until they reached the town about two miles distant from the spot where the whites had halted. They then made a stand and for the first time there occurred some real fighting. The Indians stood stoutly behind the loop-holed walls of the cabins and in the blockhouse. The Americans, advancing cautiously and gaining ground, suffered much more loss than they inflicted. Late ln the afternoon Clark managed to bring the three-pounder into action from a point below the town. A few shots from the three-pounder dislodged the defenders of the blockhouse and about sunset the whites closed in, only to find that their foes had escaped and disappeared. A few stragglers exchanged shots with the advance guard of Logan's wing as it at last came down the bank. This was the only part Logan was able to take in the battle. Of the Indians six or eight were slain, whereas the whites lost seventeen and a large number were wounded. "Clark destroyed all the houses and a large quantity of corn, then the army marched back to the mouth of the Licking and disbanded, most of the volunteers having been out just twenty-five days. "The Indians were temporarily cowed by their loss and by the damage they had suffered. Especially were they cowed by the moral effect of so formidable a retaliation foray following immediately on the heels of the victory of Byrd's inroad. Therefore, thanks to Clark, the settlements south of the Ohio were but little molested for the remainder of the year." The first court for Lincoln County was held in 1781 at Harrod's Fort, the earliest and strongest fort in Kentucky. As it did not have the required population, Colonel Benjamin Logan offered ten acres of land at St. Asaph's, or Logan's Fort and fifty acres at Stanford, on condition that a courthouse be built there as a permanent site. His offer was accepted and plans were made at once to build the courthouse. At the July term it was proven that Benjamin Logan and James Harrod were employed for twenty days, each of theme with one horse to ride and one pack horse, to transport from the Long Island of Holston to the Kentucky country. They were allowed 22 pounds for their services. This is in reference to Logan's 200 mile run to the Holston for ammunition after the Indian attack at Logan's Fort. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ANDREW LAIR RECORDS In an original document in the Virginia State Library and known as the "Illinois Papers," D. 156, is the pay roll of Captain George Adams Company in actual service in Lincoln County Militia 1782. In the above mentioned pay roll the name of Andrew Lair appears as having served as a private, he having enlisted June 29, and being discharged July 25. Sworn to before Benjamin Logan, by Colonel John Logan, that this service was performed. Certified copy can be obtained from Virginia State Library. In the Lincoln County Court Records of 1786, published in the Kentucky State Register, May 1922, Vol. 20, No. 59, Andrew Lair was commissioned "An Lieutenant, l779." Also in the index of Certificate Book of the Land Commissions in 1779-80 the name of Andrew Lair appears reference page 141 of Certificate Book. This index is published in the Kentucky Register September 1923, Vol. 21 No. 63. By the Act of 1779 "every person who had entered a claim and raised a crop of corn prior to 1778 was entitled to 400 acres at the sale (?) of $2.25 per hundred acres and were also given the right to pre-empt 1,000 acres in addition to be paid for at the higher rate of $40.00 per hundred acres." The Register of the Kentucky Historical Society for May 1923 Vol. 21, page 141, records the following: "And'w Lear this day claimed a pre-emption of 400 acres of land at the state price in the District of Kentucky lying on a small creek running into the Kentucky River about 13 miles up the said creek from the river by making an actual settlement in the month of March 1779. Satisfactory proof being made to the Court they are of Opinion that the s'd Lear has a right to a pre-emption of 400 acres of Land to include the above Location & that a Cert. issue accordingly." Jillson's Land Grants: "Andrew Lair 300 acres Book 4 Page 428 Date 3-25-1784 Fayette Ky. River " " 100 " Book 9 Page 532 Date 12-3-1784 Fayette Johnson's Fork Licking " 192 " Book 144 Page 101 592 Date 5-2-1786 Fayette Johnson's Fork Andrew Lair could not have chosen a more beautiful site for a home. The Dix River plunges down its steep banks into the Kentucky in a white froth. It was a favorable site for mill dams, necessary at that time, and court records show that Colonel Bowman, Colonel Logan, John Craig, Joseph Hunt and Robert Allen were granted mill sites there and were neighbors of the Lairs. It was on this land in Lincoln County that Andrew Lair spent the remainder of his very eventful life,and where he died in 1826. The Will of Andrew Lair, probated April 10, 1826, is to be found in the Lincoln County records, Book of 1824-1829, Book 1, and is as follows: "In the name of God Amen, I Andrew Lair of Lincoln County and state of Kentucky, being of a good memory and of a sound disposing mind, calling into mind the frailities of human life and the certainty of death, do make and constitute this my last will and testament revoking and disannulling all others in the manner and form as follows: "Item first, I recommend my spirit to God who gave it in full hope of a happy immortality through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus and my body to the grave to be buryed under the direction of my executors untyl the morning of the resurrection.

"Given from under my hand this 7th day April in the year of our Lord Eighteen hundred and twenty five." ANDREW LAIR Witness: John S. Higgins James Withers Braddock Withers -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE FAMILY OF ANDREW LAIR Andrew Lair was born in Philadelphia in 1750 and died in Lincoln County, Kentucky, in 1826. In Virginia he married Lady Frances Hubbard, who was born in 1752 and died in Lincoln County in 1792. The following are the names of the nine children born to Andrew and Frances Hubbard Lair, in order of their birth dates, the married names of the daughters and such names as could be had of the next generation. 1. Catherine, born about 1773 in the state of Virginia, was brought as an infant into the fort home of her parents in the wilderness of Kentucky. She married a Mr. Stepp and all other records of her are lost. 2. Elizabeth Lair, born in 1774 in the Kentucky fort, was the second white girl baby born ln Kentucky, according to the Smiser Bible and letters from descendants in the papers of Eliza Lair. She lived in Kentucky for "three score years," according to the Smlser Bible, then moved to Missouri where she died at the age of 104. Cousin Lenie Euffman of Cynthiana, Kentucky, had a copy of a letter written by Elizabeth Lair Pope shortly before her death in which she wrote she had her teeth and eyesight, did not wear glasses and had spent the day before at the home of her son, walking a mile each way. She had declined an invitation to the Philadelphia Centennial. She first married a Mr. Brady and had two children by that marriage. After his death she married Thomas Pope and by that marriage had three sons; William, Andrew and Thomas. The latter had one son, Daniel Pope, who married Mollie Hatfield. There are no records of descendante of the first two sons. 3. William, born in 1775, married Mary Graham and died in Russell County, Kentucky,in 1875. There were eight children born to this union; Margaret,who married Dr. R. C. Hill, lived in Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, then moved to Oregon, making the trip in 1853 in a covered wagon; Enoch Green Lair married Lucy Stapp; Martha Jane Lair married John P. Buster of Texas; Almira Lair married Simeon Yakey; John Lair married Harriet Owens; Emily Lair married Edward Tiller; William Dixon Lair graduated in medicine from Transylvania, lived in Texas and married Marie Hayner and Thomas Lair, a farmer, married Kittie Anderson. 4. James Lair, born in 1778, married a Miss Robinson. The name of one son is given, William Lair, who later lived at Glennville, Missouri. One daughter, Mollie Lair. 5. Martha Lair, known as "Patsy," was born in 1780 in Lincoln County, Kentucky,and died in Harrison County in 1857. In 1803 she married George Smiser in Harrison County. This remarkable woman showed great courage at an early age as she escaped capture and possible death by an Indian when she was not yet in her teens. There was illness in the family of Andrew Lair and finding it necessary to make a trip through the woods to the mill, only Martha was well enough to go. Her father cautioned her to save her horse on the way to the mill as his strength might be needed for the return and told her to get her corn ground as quickly as possible. Reaching the mill she found many people ahead of her and when the miller finished her meal and fastened the sack to her saddle, lt was quite dark. Galloping through the dense woods, her horse suddenly shied and an Indian sprang from the thicket and tried to catch her bridle. She remembered her father's instructions and whipping her horse, calling "go, Billie, go," she flattened herself out against his neck, dashed through the woods, and watching every shadow reached her home in safety, where she fell sobbing into her father's arms. Martha Lair was twenty-three when she made her momentous visit to her relatives in Harrison County, taking three days to make the trip on horseback, a distance of scarcely 80 miles from her Lincoln County home Accompanied by a body-guard, she spent the nights along the way with friends, reaching the handsome home of her cousin, Charles Lair at Lair Station, on the third day. Since the death of the original owner, Martha's uncle Matthias Lair, the home was presided over by his son Charles. Living in the home was Charles' small niece, Betsy Smiser the three-year-old daughter of Charles' sister Catherine and their neighbor, George Smiser. Catherine died soon after the birth of her daughter Betsy and George Smiser then married another sister of Charles Lair, Mary, who died at the birth of twin daughters, who also died. Being left a widower a second time and evidently liking the Lair girls, it was not long until he was courting the lovely guest and cousin, Martha Lair. Thus the visit to the relatives in Harrison County lasted for a lifetime and George Smiser is known to the family as the brave man who married three Lair girls, Catherine and Mary, daughters of Matthias Lair, and their cousin, Martha, the daughter of Andrew. Martha Lair Smiser's home was across the Licking River and not far from "The Cedars." It had been built for George Smiser's first wife and was one of the earliest and most pretentious brick houses in Harrison County at that time. Built of small hand-made bricks two stories high with an attic, the four large rooms and hall on the first floor were done in "rice plaster" which had the glaze of fine porcelain. There were hard-carved mantels and chair-boards in the house and its furnishings were considered the last word in elegance. Martha made the outside of her house as beautiful as it was within and her flower garden with its intricate brick walks and pretty beds of blooming plants soon became the envy of the countryside. However, she was more widely known for her herb garden which her slaves called "old missus' yard garden." As there were no apothecary shops in those days, every doctor had to obtain his medicinal plants and roots and with other elements, mix his concoctions. Martha, with her knowledge of herbs, soon became a godsend to the medical profession and doctors were often her distinguished guests. Being deeply religious as were all the Lairs, she entertained her minister and his family and the work of her church was one of her greatest interests. Martha liked pretty clothes and gave the greatest care to her toilet, especially to the selection of "neckacher" cap and "breast pin" to be worn that day. She rode to Cynthiana on horseback to do her shopping, taking along her favorite maid, "Julie, " to carry her "carpet bag" of purchases. The merchants considered her an authority on fine goods and her adoring slaves thought she knew everything. Living as they did on the Buffalo Trace, the slaves working on the farm would frequently find bones of the mastodon and other pre-historic animals. These they carried to her and she had them cleaned and recognizing each one, stored them in the "saddle house" to show to distinguished guests. A good story of the loyalty of her slaves is told of "Ike," who opened the door of the "saddle house to show a neighboring slave "old missus' bones." The visiting slave sneeringly said: "Why man, my missus, she knows the name of every tree thet grows in this here woods," and Ike, not to be outdone, raised his powerful voice and shouted: "Hesh yo mouf, nigger, I'm a-telling you, my Miss Patsy Smiser, she knows de names ob de stahs in Hebben." Martha Lair Smiser was a noted housekeeper and her wines, cordials, pickles, jellies and preserves were famous. The vegetable garden was her pride and delight and she knew how to store her vegetables in her cellar for winter use. Her slaves became skillful in the curing of the fine old hams and in making the sausage by Martha's recipe and mixing it in a trench from a hollowed log. Martha had a gay disposition but she was also self-willed. Not agreeing with her in some small decision, she became irritated with George and said: "If you will not agree with me in this, I will jump out of the window," whereas George, without raising his eyes from the book he was reading, said in his broken English: "yump, Marthy, yump!" Her gay laughter made everything right again. George Smiser, the husband of Martha Lair, was born in 1772 in Virginia. As a young man of considerable means he came to Kentucky to make his home, selecting the location on the Licking River as an admirable one to carry on his business as he had learned the hatter's trade, a lucrative one in those days. Small dams were made in the river where the beavers were trapped and making use of the eighty or so slaves he owned, he soon had a thriving business at Lair Station. The pelts of the beavers were tanned by the negro slaves and the fine sewing of the watermelon pink silk linings was done by young women who lived in the neighborhood. These elegant tall beaver hats, so fashionable for the dandies of that day, were sent to Philadelphia where they sold for excellent price. Some slaves were also used in the lead mines George Smiser owned and in the operation of his distillery. A note in his Bible reads: "Put in a small copper distillery - made much of it, sold it in Maisville and Lexington at .10 and 12 1/2 per gal." Although his "it" was cheaply sold, George made money on it as he did on the large farm he operated. George Smiser was the grandson of the immigrant George Smiser who at nine years of age came to America with his widowed mother Barbara Smiser, his brother Matthias, 16, and his sister Margaret, 20. Sailing from Rotterdam on "The Britannia" they landed in this country September 21, 1731. The husband and father,Marton Schmeisser (Smiser) served as second in command under Frederidk V, and fell mortally wounded at the battle of Würtenburg, an important engagement of The Thirty Years War between the Catholics and the Protestants. This war was bitter as all rellgious wars are and as it was won by the Catholics, the Protestants found it advisable to seek new homes in America where they could worship God as they pleased. The family of Schmeisser, or Smeisser, is one of the oldest German families of free or noble descent, who flourished among the Silesian Knighthood. Known as "Schmeissers von Ehrenpreisberg" their castle was located on the Rhine and their coat-of-arms shows the crown and the lifted arm hurling a javelin, thus giving the name Schmeisser which means "one who throws." In America the name has been variously spelled; Schmeisser, Smeisser. Smizer, Smyser, Smiser. Martha Lair and George Smiser had the following eight children: Samuel Merritt Smiaer married Rebecca Frazer; John Hilton Smiser married Julian Edwards; George Smiser married (1) Mary Allen, (2) Margaret Collier, (3) Martha Wilson; Catherine Smiser married John Wesley Lair, a first cousin of her mother's; Darius Smiser married (1) Louisa Smith, (2) Sarah Jane Howe; William Smiser married Helena Lair, his first cousin; Mary Smiser married James Frazer; Celia Smiser who was unmarried. In explanatlon of the above Smiser-Lair marriages: Catherine Smiser, daughter of Martha Lair Smiser, was the granddaughter of Andrew Lair and she married John Wesley Lair, the son of John Lair who was a brother of Andrew Lair, thus John Wesley Lair was a first cousin of Martha Lair Smiser, his wife's mother. William Smiser, the son of Martha Lair Smiser and the grandson of Andrew Lair,married Helena Lair, the daughter of John Lair and the granddaughter of Andrew Lair, showing them to be first cousins. The two John Lairs are not to be confused. One was a brother of Andrew, the other was a son of Andrew. 6. Mary Lair was the sixth child of Andrew and Frances Hubbard Lair. She was born in 1782, and married William Pope. Their daughter Helena, married (1) William Faulkner and had one daughter who married William Huffman. Her second marriage was to John Miller Anderson and had four sons and three daughters. Married names of daughters are: Robertson, Thomas and Keller. 7. Hubbard Lair, born in 1783, married Julia Montgomery. Their children were: William Lair, who married a Miss Wilkinson; Andrew Lair who married Mary Ann Wilson, and John Montgomery Lair who married Mary Tatum. 8. Celia Lair, born in 1786, married William Anderson and had one daughter who married N. Carter of Dallas, Texas, It was Celia and her husband William Anderson who cared for Andrew Lair the last years of his life and to whom he willed his farm in Lincoln County. 9. The youngest child of Andrew and Frances Hubbard Lair was John who married Elizabeth Buchanan, said to be a relative of the President of that name, There were three daughters of this union: Helena Lair who married her cousin William Smiser; Elizabeth Lair who married Jonathan Smith and Catherine Lair who married Charles Smith. This completes the story of Andrew Lair, son of Matthias and Catharina Lair, the immigrants; born in Virginia; married Frances Hubbard in Virginia; came over the Wilderness Trail into Kentucky; fought under George Rogers Clark and Benjamin Logan; hero of Indian warfare; commissioned a Lieutenant for service in the Revolutionary War against the British and Indians; took up his lands in Lincoln County, Kentucky, where he died in 1826. As the first Lair in Kentucky, we can indeed think of him with pride. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MATTHIAS AND JOHN LAIR SETTLE IN KENTUCKY Sixteen years after Andrew Lair came over the Wilderness Road to make his home in Kentucky,his two brothers, Matthias and John, accompanied by their families, slaves and livestock left their fertile Shenandoah Valley ln Virginia to also make their home in the same state, Matthias, a man of 39, and John ten years younger, came by the river route and the Buffalo Trace and though the year was 1791, the route was equally as dangerous as the Wilderness Road had been when traveled by Andrew in 1775. England claimed the eastern part of the continent, Spain controlled the Mississippi at its mouth and both England and France desired the great Mississippi basin. Hemmed in as the colonies were between the Atlantic and the Alleghany Mountains, a Mystery Land lay beyond and both nations were alert to find a way to possess it. The beautiful Ohio River was the alluring avenue provided by nature to open up this country, and like a siren, it beckoned men of all sorts and conditions to follow its course. The Alleghany from the north and the Monongahela from the south join below Pittsburgh to form the Ohio, the river that filled the Indians with awe and was known to the Wyandotts as the Ohezhu, the Mohawks as Oheyo, the Oneidas as the Ohe and the Iroquois as the Oyo. Painted savages in undisturbed possession had crept silently through the dark forests that fringed the Ohio River and climbing into their birch canoes, had crossed it and paddled up its numerous tributaries into the heart of Kentucky, called by them, "Happy Hunting Ground." The first white men who followed the Indians into Kentucky were the fur-traders for fur--not gold, silver or oil, but fur was the lure that opened up this continent, and France and England struggled for a century to get control of the Ohio country. Bartering gaudy calicoes, whistles, combs, knives and looking glasses for the pelts the Indians discarded, these traders came and went but not making permanent homes in the state, were not molested by the Indians. As the white settlers came down the Ohio, the Indians on the northern bank concealed themselves behind the giant forest trees that grew down to the water's edge and attacked them whenever possible, using guns and ammunition supplied by England. Often they would force white prisoners to run along the bank of the river, crying to be taken on board by the settlers but woe unto the soft-hearted who went to their rescue, only to be taken prisoners also. There were dangers of whirlpools, sandbars and of large trees floating in the current with great branches to catch the small boats and crush them. There were two guide books which the settlers found helpful: Darby's "Emigrant's Guide" and "The Navigator." There are no records to tell us of the hundreds of boats destroyed and the thousands of settlers who were drowned or picked off by the Indians, yet on and on they came in a continuous procession to make their homes in Kentucky. Matthlas Lair, his wife, Ann Elizabeth Rush Lair and seven of their children with slaves, livestock and household goods, occupied several flatboats These boats were built at Redstone and could be purchased for about $35.00 each, although the larger ones with partial roof and sleeping bunks were more expensive. John Lair, his wife Sallie Custer Lair and two children, followed with their boats similarly loaded. The other children of Matthias and John Lair were born in Kentucky as indicated by the dates of their birth. We do not know whether our two Lair families embarked at Pittsburgh or at Redstone but, as the long string of flatboats, each with a man heavily armed for the night and day watch, began their perilous journey down the Ohio, they must have made an impressive departure. We can only imagine the hardships of that trip: the exposure and discomfort of the small boats; the difficulty in milking the cows and preparing the food; and the constant fear of river and Indians. We do not know, either, how long it took them to float down the Ohio but we can well imagine their great joy when they saw for the first time the great limestone cliffs jutting out into the river where the small settlement of Maysville was located. The unloading of the flatboats, the great scramble up the steep hill, took time, and arranging for the pack-train took even more time. The packtrains consisted of six or eight horses fastened together and on each horse was a pack-saddle in which was placed the many small articles, household goods and in some instances, the small children who were too young to go on foot and too heavy to be carried a great distance. A driver and a leader were required to handle a pack-train and having many slaves with them, it is possible the Lairs used their own men in the operation of the pack-train. Driving the livestock before them, the packtrains were followed by the slaves on foot end members of the families on horseback. The last lap of their Journey was less than fifty miles from Maysville to the land they had purchased on the banks of the Licking River but it took them several days. They spent their nights in "lean-tos," a make-shift shelter of boughs fastened together around a fire where the slaves took turns keeping a constant watch, guns in hand. This last stretch must have seemed the longest of all as they excitedly made plans for their new homes in the wilderness and traveled on the only highway of the state - the Buffalo Trace. The Buffalo Trace is the oldest road in North America. Beaten down by the hoofs of buffalos thousands of years ago, this trace is as directly cut as if designed by an experienced engineer. The buffalos came from the North and the West, trampling and beating the earth in their frenzy to reach the salt deposits found in abundance in this section of Kentucky. The Buffalo Trace was used by the Indians as they came to their "Happy Bunting Ground;" by the fur traders who came to barter gifts for pelts; by the backwoodsmen who hunted and explored the state; and by all the settlers who came this way. In making their decision as to the location of their lands, Matthias and John Lair must have taken into account the fact that the Buffalo Trace ran through their lands and that it would be a good place to build their permanent homes, facing the trace. All indications are that these Lair men made numerous trips into the state prior to 1791 in order to look things over before making their final decision as to location. Records show that they had owned some land in Kentucky near Maysville in Mason County and also in Lincoln County. They were entitled grants for their service in the Revolutionary War and they also had the means with which to buy additional land. With their background as farmers of the Rhineland, they were attracted by the Blue Grass region and by the rich land on the banks of the Licking. Between them, Matthias and John Lair owned more than 2,000 acres in the bend of the Licking River, according to the family records. The land on which they settled soon became known as "The Lair Settlement'" then as "Lair Station" and now is known as "Lair, Kentucky." As soon as they reached their destination' they set to work felling the large trees in order to make a "clearing" for the houses and also to get in as many crops as possible. The best logs were selected for the building of the cabins as logs were the best material at hand for those first homes Matthias built a double cabin for his family and John built a single one, well within sight of his brother's home. Cabins also had to be built for the slaves of the two men and close by the cabins of their master. The site of Matthias' cabin was where the smoke house later stood and back of the fine house built years later by his son, Charles. The double cabin consisted of two cabins built end to end with a "dog trot" between. This trot later became a hall connecting the two cabins, and still later a small porch or portico was added in front. There was a stairway like a ladder to the loft above where the children slept. Both cabins had a large stone chimney on the end. The floors were puncheon, logs smoothed on the up-side and laid close together; the windows were of doe skin, greased and stretched very tight, which permitted light to enter the room. These windows, however, had shutters of solid wood on the inside that could be quickly closed if Indians should attack, The doors were slabs of wood hung on deer thongs and each door had B hole cut through in order that the "latch string" could be put outside. Thus the expression, "The latch-string is hanging on the out ice" which always spelled hospitality. The inside was made comfortable and attractive by Annliss Lair with the few treasured possessions she had brought with her from her Virginia home and when she put the "kivvers" on the beds made of boughs fastened through the logs of the wall,the bright rag carpets on the floor and hung her cooking vessels by the large stone fireplace, she no doubt made a homey place of her log cabin. The single cabin built for John Lair and his family was located near the site of his stone house which was started almost immediately and the original cabin became the outside kitchen and was used by the family for many years. Matthias Lair brought his livestock with him when he came from Virginia and needing a pen for them used the stockade of the old Ruddle's Fort left standing after the masaacre by the British and Indians June 22, 1780, eleven years before. This made a splendid stock pen and when Matthias soon became an extensive mule buyer selling throughout that section of the state, the stockade became known to the family as the "mule pen" and remained so for several years or until a better pen was built near the barns. The old stockade was then torn down and the large logs used for buildings about the place. It is also interesting to know that the bones of the forters scalped and killed in that messacre were covered with rocks and dirt by men from nearby forts soon after the tragedy and the bones remained there until Charles Lair built the family vault several years later and placed them there. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MATTHIAS LAIR RECORDS Matthias Lair served aa a Captain in the Revolutionary War but his service was in the state of Virginia and records are not to be found in Kentucky. A careful search was made of The Register, publication of the Kentucky State Historical Society, Frankfort, Kentucky, but there is no mention of the service of Matthias Lair. Records in the posseasion of his descendants show: "Matthias, a Captain in the Revolutionary War spent his final pay, amounting to $600.00, for a pair of boots and a pair of silver cuff buttons." W. W. Stevenson of Harrodsburg said records there showed: "December 6, 1782, Matthias Lair entered 100 acres of land upon part of a Treasure Warrant, 11,065 lying in a 'bent' of Dicks River opposite the mouth of the Hanging Fork on the Trace leading from Jackmans to Downeys station to Southeast for quantity including the before-mentioned also same, adding the Warrant Records out of the office June 1783 " Matthias Lair - Henry Lee Va., Warrant 240. October 13,, 1779, 400 acres Lincoln's Rolling Fork. Matthias Lair - Beverly Randolph-Va., Warrant 3739. The above information is from bits of paper found in the papers of Eliza Lair, a descendant. These warrants were always for Revolutionary War service and all can be found in the Virginia records. As shown in the family records, Matthias Lair bought 463 acres in Harrison County from Robert and Nancy Hinkson for 580 pounds, this land having been patented by them. There is no record of the purchase of the additional acreage. Matthias Lair did not live long after coming into Kentucky for he died in 1795, at 42 years of age. The Smiser Bible shows: "Matthias Lair died from exposure fighting for our independence." His wife, Ann Elizabeth Rush Lair, known as "Annliss" out-lived him many years. Matthias' death dropped the burden of leadership upon the young shoulders of his oldest son, Charles, not yet twenty years old. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CHARLES LAIR Charles Lair, the oldest child of Matthias and Ann Elizabeth Rush Lair, born in Virginia in 1775, was a boy of sixteen when the family made the long and dangerous trek from their home in Virginia to their new home in Kentucky and no doubt was the principal assistant of his father and uncle. He lived to be 85 years of age, dying in 1860, and was well remembered by my mother, Helen Lair Ward, who described him as a large man, very handsome, with brilliant mind and known to her and the entire relationahlp as "Uncle Charlie" although he was a first cousin of her father's. This remarkable man of vision was farmer, stockman, architect, scientist and above all, a great scholar. It was he who developed the land in the wilderness until it became a magnificent farm; who added to his livestock until he became known in all that section for his successful dealings; who built the famous barn in 1811 without a planing mill and without nails; who designed and built his beautiful house in 1812, "The Cedars," known throughout Kentucky as an architectural gem and admired by the best architects in this country for one hundred and forty-five years. His library, built up through the years, was a remarkable one, showing his unusual taste and his great breadth of knowledge. Upon the death of his father, Matthias Jr., Charles shouldered the responsibility of his mother and the eight younger brothers and sisters, caring tenderly for them all. In 1801 he married Sallie Anderson and with the arrival of his own children, he found the double log cabin crowded and began making plans for the building of a magnificent house. Started by Charles Lair in 1812 and completed in 1828, this house was built at a cost of $40,000, a tremendous sum for that day, and could not be built today for many times that amount. In 1930 the main part of thia exquisite house was burned and today only the ell of the house and the old library wing are left standing. The porches, however, were saved and one can be seen on the ell where it is used by the present occupants. Also, if you dig about in the grass, you can plainly discern the foundation of the main section of the house. We have several pictures, two in this booklet, to show the perfect proportions of the house and to give one an idea of the grandeur of that house that Charles Lair built. For one hundred and two years The Cedars was the center of gay social life for that section of Kentucky and a guest in those days would have found himself in a small yard after entering by the gate at the side and would have followed a wide brick walk to the main door. There were many brick walks in the yard, laid out in a symmetrical pattern, flower beds between and with a sundial in the middle of the yard. (The original sundial is in the possession of the family now and copies of it have been made.) The house had a perfectly proportioned portico at either end of the main hall, these two porticoes having graceful small pillars set high on iron standards which gave the pillars the look of being suspended as they were unattached at the top. The roof of the portico was curved, giving the whole an exceedingly light and graceful appearance. The doorway into the hall was duplicated at the other end and these doorways were fan- shaped with leaded panes of glass that had been brought in from Philadelphla. The hall was tremendous with the stairway, long and shallow of tread, up one side, across on a long landing then up a shorter flight to the floor above and the bedrooms. The floors were of wide ash, the woodwork carved and painted white, On the left of the hall was the parlor, a large room running the full depth of the house with ample space for the large pieces of mahogany furniture brought in from Philadelphla and New Orleans. Around the wall ran a molding of wood with sandwich glass knobs on which hung pictures at even distances apart. These pictures, well remembered by members of the family, were scenes of Germany and the Rhineland and hung on silk cords. Other pieces of furniture were made by cabinet makers in Maysville and Lexington of the native woods; curly sugartree, wild cherry and walnut. But the wonderful piece of furniture in the parlor was the piano, one of the earliest in Kentucky. This instrument was made in Maysville by two brothers who were cabinet makers and had learned the making of spinets and pianos in "the old country." Only two were made by these brothers, and Charles Lair was fortunate in being able to buy one of them. The piano was short, more the type of a spinet than a piano, was ornamented in front by a brass sunburst and was lined with sky-blue silk. The magnificent clock from this house is now in the home of a descendant. From the parlor you went down several steps into what was called the "library porch," a small porch closed on the back but open on the side next the yard. Crossing this porch you entered the library, a beautiful room with windows front and back, a hand-carved mantel and with built-in bookcases, beautifully carved also with "butterfly shelves" for the many books Charles Lair had collected. He bought his books in Philadelphia and the larger cities in this country, often sending to London for one he especially desired. The most remarkable thing in the library was the ingenious way he provided for the study of his maps. On either eide of the back windows, behind the shutters, were small grooves with heavy cords and when these were pulled and the door in the ceiling was opened, the maps descended into the room from a small attic above, thus permitting the student to carefully study the map on either side. After getting his information, Charles would pull his cords and the map would be drawn up to the room above and the door closed. There were several cords, each attached to a large map and this novel idea of Charles Lair permitted them to be studied without using too much space in the beautiful room. At the end of the house, beyond the library, was a tool room and also a "saddle house" both used for the many things needed about the place. On the right side of the hall as you entered the house was the "family room" which was a very large room running the depth of the house Back of it was the "girl's room" and across a porch was a large room known as the "boy's room." Beyond it was the loom room. At right angles to the main part of the house and across this last porch was the "ell" with dining room, kitchen and a room back with attic above used as servant's quarters. The kitchen had a large stone open fireplace where the cooking was done and was equipped with cranes, cooking utensils of copper, etc. This ell was the first part of the house built by Charles and was occupied by the family during the years the handsome main part was being constructed. Crossing the yard from the ell and standing where the sundial stood, one could study the beautiful lines of the house: the roof line and the dormer windows in the bedrooms above; the perfect proportion of the windows of the downstairs rooms and the bricks, painted white, which were laid in what is known as "Flemish bond" by the students of our early architecture. These bricks were hand-made by the slaves on the place and the perfection of their work made them among the finest examples in the state. Just beyond the sundial was the spring house which was a small brick structure with conical roof and reached by several store steps. Within it was always cool, even on the hottest summer days, and as children we liked to go there and sit while we drank our milk from the crocks in the spring. This spring probably determined Matthias on the location of that double cabin of his when he first explored his land after arrival. In 1811 Charles Lair built his barn, which is said to be the oldest log barn standing in Kentucky. Patterned after the "Switzer" barns built by the Germans in Pennsylvania and Virginia which were copied from those built in the Rhineland, this great old barn had the roof raised in one day by 500 men who came for a big barbecue dinner as the guests of Charles Lair. Sheep, pigs and chickens were roasted in pits and the preparations went on for days before hand. It stands on a hillside on a foundation of stone and has stalls for the livestock below where it is protected against the hill. On the upside there is a tremendous revolving door, 40 feet wide, that turns on a huge squared log serving as pivot. This door enables the wagons to drive in on one side, turn round and go out on the other side. Two bins were on either side built for grain. At the beginning of the War of 1812, men in that section were mustered in at the barn. Charles Lair, standing in the great doorway, held a hat in which were placed slips of paper to be drawn by the men. A story in the family is that Charles drew a slip for service and his brother drew one that was blank. His brother said: "You have children and your family needs you. I will give you the blank slip and will take the one for service." The story related was that the brother was killed and that Charles grieved for the rest of his life, because his brother had sacrificed his life for him. Just which brother it was who so unselfishly gave his life in this manner has never been exactly clear but as Joseph died quite young, unmarried, and either in New Orleans or in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, it is believed it was he. In 1845 Charles Lair decided to build a vault on the banks of the Licking River just below "The Cedars" and to place in it the bodies of the members of the family who were buried in a nearby graveyard. He secured the best workmen possible and had a large room or opening dynamited out of the solid limestone cliff. A story is that one of the workmen wee blown into the river below by a large charge of dynamite but escaped with only minor injuries. After the stone vault was completed, a door of iron was hung and placed above, a slab of marble on which are the words: "Please do not disturb the remains of the Sleeping Dead" and the date 1845. A ledge was left before the door with room enough for a procession of people to stand during a service. A small iron gate was placed between this ledge and the pathway that led to the vault from the house. After completion of the vault, Charles bought in Maysville several large iron coffins which were being used at that time in some of the cities. These coffins were to replace those in the graveyard that had decayed and in some instances, fallen apart. For the ceremony of moving the bodies from the graveyard to the vault on the banks of the river, he invited all the relatives and friends who lived nearby. Cousin Dink Smith, a granddaughter of Charles Lair, was a small girl at the time and accompanied by her mother went to the ceremony. She said: "Grandpa had a sense of the dramatic and he asked that all hold hands as each coffin was opened and the bodies moved to the new iron coffins. The first to be opened was that of his mother, Ann Elizabeth Rush Lair, and as Charles Lair lifted her up all saw the beautiful woman's face, her bright dress, golden brown hair bound with a brown velvet ribbon embroidered in gold leaves. As they all pressed forward to get a better look, whiff, She fell into dust." Cousin Dink related that the negroes moaned and wailed and she, getting the fright of her small life, ran under her mother's tilters, nearly upsetting that dignified lady. As the iron coffins and such others as were in good condition were placed in the vault, the headstones used in the graveyard were placed at the head of each. After all the members of the family had been moved into the vault, Charles Lair gathered up the bones of the twenty forters who had been massacred at Ruddle's Fort and had them placed in two stone coffins and put in the vault. These bones are the only remains of the pioneer forters known to be in Kentucky preserved in this way and had it not been for Charles Lair and his thoughtfulness, they would have remained near the mule pen back of "The Cedars." In 1909 Cousin Eliza Lair, a descendant of Charles Lair and with her sister, owner of "The Cedars" met me at the vault with undertakers, photographers, cement men, etc., and after bringing the iron coffins from the vault in order to take pictuxes of them, they were placed in rows in the vault and cemented in, so as not to be disturbed in the years to come. There they are today and where they should remain. The vault and surroundings should be kept in better order, as Charles Lair left money for that purpose, and the Lair Association should see that it is done well. Charles Lair died in 1860, age 85, after a long and useful life, and was pieced in the vault he had built. He was indeed the Great Charles Lair. The children of Charles Lair and his wife, Sallie Anderson Lair, are as follows: Catherine and Betsey, died as infants; Isaac Newton Lair married Lucretia Jamison; Sallie Lair married William Redmon; Martin Luther Lair married Nancy Williams, and built the Colonial house across the road; Matthias Lair married Rowena Lair; Willism Lair married Mary Elizabeth Lair; Joseph Lair, unmarried; Eliza Lair married George Redmon; Cynthia Lair married John Redmon; John Lair married (1) Emily Redmon, (2) Varia Varnon. In explanation of the Lair-Lair marriages: Matthias Lair, son of Charles and grandson of the first Matthias in Kentucky, married Rowena Lair, the daughter of Matthias Lair and the granddaughter of the first John in Kentucky, Thus Matthias and Rowena were second cousins. William Lair, son of Charles Lair, married Mary Elizabeth, the daughter of Matthias Lair. Charles Lair and Matthias were brothers and the sons of the first Matthias in Kentucky. Thus William and Mary Elizabeth Lair were first cousins. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- OTHER CHILDREN OF MATTHIAS AND ANN ELIZABETH RUSH LAIR 2. Catherine Lair, born in Virginia in 1777 was the second child of Matthias and Ann Elizabeth Rush Lair and came over the trace with them to their new home in Kentucky. She died in 1800 and was placed in the family vault. She married their neighbor, George Smiser, and it was for her he built his home. They had one child, Elizabeth (Betsey) who lived in the home of her uncle Charles Lair after the death of her mother and until the marriage of her father to her aunt, Mary Lair. After the death of Mary Lair Smiser, the little girl returned to the home of her uncle where she lived until her father married his third wife, Martha Lair, when she then went to live with her father and step-mother. When Betsey was but fourteen years old she ran off and married Jacob Dove Harter, a young man who was serving as an apprentice to her father at his "hattery" conducted at Lair Station. In the middle of the night Betsey slipped to the attic of the home, located her saddle and bridle in the dark, and dropping them out the window to the waiting arms of "Jakie" stole out the front door and away they went to Falmouth, Kentucky, to be married at the home of her cousin, Paul Custer Lair. Returning some time 1ater, her father angrily shouted at her in his broken English but her step-mother, Martha Lair Smiser, kindly took them in. They did not remain there for long, however, but went to Ohio to make their home among the relatives of Jakie Harter, where they prospered, reared a large family and often returned to visit the Kentucky kin. The large fortune of the Harters came from the manufacture of their well-known medicine known as "Harter's Little Liver Pills" and "Harter's Iron Tonic." It was a bitter dose but every spring, whether we needed it or not, all five of us were rounded up and given a thorough course of treatment. Tears and protests were unavailing. Mama said firmly, waving the large tablespoon: "Open your mouth, you know it is a great medicine and that it is made by our Lair kinfolks." Verily there was no limitation to the Lair loyalty. 3. Mary Lair, the third child of Matthias and Ann Elizabeth Rush Lair, was born in Virginia and came to Kentucky with her parents. She became the second wife of George Smiser after the death of her sister Catherine. Mary Lair Smiser died after the birth of twin daughters who died also. It was after the death of Mary Lair that George Smiser married the first cousin of his first two wives, Martha Lair,the daughter of Andrew Lair of Lincoln County. George was the "brave man who married three Iair girls." 4. William Lair, the fourth child of Matthias and Ann Elizabeth Rush Lair, was born in Virginia in 1784. He married Emily Bell, and their children were: Charles Lair married Sarah Zimmerman; Saphronia Lair married Rudolph Zimmerman; John Lair married Elvina Williams; Emily Jane Lair married S. V. Helvie; Sarah Lair married Richard Thomas; Joseph Lair married Sarah Ross; Rachel Lair married Wells Willett; Ossie Lair married Frank Piper; Matthias Lair married (l) Martha Ross, (2) Discretion Ferguson, (3) Ella Sparks; Henrietta Lair married Albert Stiffler; Addie Lair married Dr. John Nesbit. 5. Elizabeth Lair, known as "Betsey" was the fifth child of Matthias and Ann Elizabeth Rush Lair. She was born in 1785 in Virginia and died, unmarried, at eighteen years of age. 6. Joseph Lair, the sixth child, born in Virginia and who also came over the trace with his parents, died unmarried in either New Orleans or Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It is believed he is the brother of Charles Lair who unselfishly offered to go into service in the War of 1812. 7, Matthias Lair, born in Virginia (birth date uncertain) was probably the youngest of the children brought over the trace by Matthias and Ann Elizabeth Lair. He married a MISS Sidle and no records give her first name. The children of this union are: Thomas Lair married (l) Mary Veatch, (2) Jane Megibben; MaryElizabeth Lair married William Lair; Sarah Ann Lair married John Lail. In explanation of this Lair-Lair marriage which is also given above: Mary Elizabeth Lair, the daughter of Matthias Lair, was the granddaughter of Matthias and Ann Elizabeth Rush Lair. She married William Lair, the son of Charles Lair and a grandson of Matthias and Ann Rush Lair. As the parent, of these two were brothers, Mary Elizabeth and William Lair were first cousins. 8. Sallie Lair born in 1789 in Virginia, the daughter of Matthias and Ann Rush Lair, married a Mr. Allon. She died at 20 years of age and was placed in the vault. 9. John Lair, son of Matthias and Ann Elizabeth Rush Lair, whose birth date is variously given, was probably born in Kentucky. He married Peggy Bell and their children are: Betsey Lair married Gen. Asbury Steele; Joseph Lair, died at four years of age; John Lair married Isabella Cook. This completes the names and the marriages and the children's names of the nine children born to Matthias and Ann Elizabeth Rush Lair. You will note that the four daughters all died young. Betsey was unmarried and Catherine, Mary and Sallie married but only Catherine left a child. Joseph died young probably in battle. The other four sons married and all reared large families. These were: Charles, William, Matthias and John. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- JOHN LAIR John Lair, the youngest child of Matthias and Catharina Lair, the immigrants, was born in Virginia in 1762. He married Sallie Custer, a neighbor, whose line is that of General George Custer, killed at the battle of "Little Big Horn." in l876. Two children were born to them while living in Virginia and were mere babies when John and Sallie Lair came into Kentucky by the river route, over the Buffalo Trace and to their new home on the banks of the Licking River. John Lair was ten years younger than his brother Matthias, but seems to have always "tagged along" with him as is shown by many records and stories handed down in the family. When Matthias went to enlist for service in the Revolutionary War, John, a very young boy, went along and the officer who was enlisting Matthias asked: "What can that strippling do?" Whereupon John drew himself up to his greatest height, which was certainly not much, and said: "I have a strong wagon and a good team and I can haul things, I reckon." Knowing the devotion of these brothers, it was a most natural thing that they should set out with their wives, children, slaves, livestock and household goods together to settle on their lands in the Blue Grass region of Kentucky. The story of their hardships on the trip from Redstone to Maysville, over the trace from Maysville to their land later known as "The Lair Settlement" and the building of their first log cabin homes there, has been told in the chapter on Matthias Lair, John's brother. Matthias being ten years older than John was definitely the leader on the trek to Kentucky, but John and his little family shared the same hardships on the perilous journey. As stated before, the two brothers set to work upon arrival, clearing their land for the crops and for their homes. John built a single cabin, well within sight of his brother's double log cabin. This cabin later became the outside kitchen for the larger house and was used as such for many years. Although Matthias Lair's family lived in their double log cabin until his son Charles began the building of the handsome house in 1812, John found his cabin too small for comfort and set to work in 1791 to build his house of stone, which is standing today. This was one of the earliest houses of that type in Kentucky and as all records read: "Was standing when Kentucky became a state in 1792." Built of field stone, the house consisted of two large rooms, one before the other, with an upstairs room for the children reached by an "in the wall" stair from the front bedroom. Windows of these rooms were deep and very high, as there was still danger of Indians lurking around. Soon after the completion of the log house, Sallie Custer Lair, her children and several of the slave women, were in her room when she noticed a horse galloping toward the house. This was always an indication that Indians were about and realizing all the men were felling trees a great distance from the house, she immediately gathered the women and children together and removed the rug over a hidden door in the floor that led to a dark cellar below. After they were all huddled in a dark corner of the cellar room, Sallie carefully closed the door and managed to get the rug over it so it would not be noticed. A few moments later they heard the whoops and yells of the Indians as they came into the house, exploring each room and looking everywhere for the occupants. A large ham was on the table, other delicacies were on the sideboard and in the closet. The Indians had a banquet and ate everything in sight, emitting great yells of satisfaction between bites. Sallie Custer prayed the entire time the Indians were in the room above and lest her baby cry out. She nursed him at the breast to keep him quiet. (This child is believed, by his birth date, to have been Paul Custer Lair, their first child born in their Kentucky home. After the Indians could not find anything more to eat, they noisely departed, leaving the house a complete wreck, Hearing the Indians yelling, John Lair and his slave men came running toward the house, expecting to find the women and children killed and the house burned, but instead found them in Sallie's room gathered about her as she prayed in thanksgiving. It is believed the Matthias Lair place was not called "The Cedars" until the fine house was built by his son, Charles, in 1828. On the other hand, John Lair and his wife, Sallie Custer Lair, named their stone house "Boscobel" at the time it was built in 1791 and so it is known today. Sallie Custer Lair had brought with her from Virginia many beautiful things, and a great many pieces of her white and gold china are in the family now. This china was added to by the next generation, John Wesley Lair and his wife, Catherine Smiser Lair, and it is interesting to study the difference in the pieces, the older ones having the panel in the rim. Furniture of the house was made by the cabinet makers, principally in Maysville, and were of the native woods. One very fine piece, a bow-front chest, was made in the late 1790s and is now in the home of a great-great-great granddaughter. As in the case of his brother Matthias, John Lair's service record of the Revolutionary War can be found in Virginia, as his service was there and there is no record to be found in The Register, publication of the State Historical Society, Frankfort, Kentucky. Records show that John Lair and Sallie Custer Lair owned land in Mason County, Kentucky, in 1789 on Johnson Fork of Licking, "part of John Lair's survey of 400 acres." John Lair bought part of his land in Harrison County from Samuel Anderson and the rest from George Kirkpatrick and a Mr. Callahan of Opolusa, in 1796. Sallie Custer Lair continued to live at "Boscobel" after the death of her husband. Her youngest son, John Wesley Lair, managed the extensive farm and cared for his mother until her death in 1847. 1. The oldest child of John and Sallie Custer Lair, born in Virginia in 1787, was Matthias Custer Lair. Be married Jane Anderson, The children of Matthias Custer and Jane Lair were: Rowena Lair married Matthias Lair; John Miller Lair married Sue Grimes; William Lair married (1) Sue Wyatt, (2) Mattie Clay; Margaret Lair married (1) Dan Shawhan, (2) Joe Taylor; Jacob Lair married Emily Lair; Abraham Lair married Fannie Dungan; Zerelda Lair married Ben Reynolds. In explanation of the Lair-Lair marriages: Rowena Lair, the daughter of Matthias Custer Lair and the granddaughter of John Lair, the first in Kentucky, married Matthias Lair, the son of Charles Lair and the grandson of the first Matthias Lair in Kentucky. Rowens and Matthias Lair were second cousins. Jacob Lair, the son of Matthias Custer Lair and grandson of the first John in Kentucky, married Emily Lair, the daughter of Addison Lair, granddaughter of William Lair and the great granddaughter of John the first of Kentucky. Jacob Lair and his wife, Emily Lair, were first cousins once removed as Jacob's father and Emily's grandfather were brothers. 2. The second child of John Lair and Sallie Custer Lair was William G. Lair, born in Virginia in 1789. He married (1) Mary Anderson, (2) Mrs. Bradley. Children were: Robert Lair, wife's name not given. Record states there were six children; Addison Lair married (1) Nancy Wood; (2) Nancy Blackford; George Lair, wife's name not given. Six sons,, four daughters; James Lair, wife's name not given. One son and one daughter; Wesley Lair. No other record; Susan Lair married a Mr. Vanskike; Margaret Lair married a Mr. Moss; Mary Lair married a Mr. Pepper; Mamie Lair married a Hr. Howell; Fannie Lair married a Mr. Davenport. 3. Paul Lair, the third child of John and Sallie Custer Lair, born in Kentucky; married Martha Frazer. There were no children by this marriage. 4. The fourth child of John and & Sallie Custer Lair was Jacob, who married a Miss Hall. Records show son, Johnnie Lair who married a Miss Turner and also state "others." 5. Catherine Lair, the fifth child of John and Sallie Custer Lair, married a Mr. Young and there were no children by this marriage and no more records. 6. Mary Lair, sixth child of John and & Sallie Custer Lair, married a Mr. Peyton and all traces were lost. 7. John Wesley Lair, the seventh child of John and Sallie Custer Lair, married Catherine Smiser, the daughter of his first cousin. John Wesley's father, John Lair, was a brother of Andrew, the grandfather of Catherine Smiser. Her mother, Martha Lair, daughter of Andrew, had married George Smiser. John Wesley Lair lived with his parents at "Boscobel" and continued to live there after his marriage to his cousin. Six children were born to this union: John Andrew Lair married Lida Bickham. He became a surgeon of note and served in the Northern Army with distinction; Helen Henry Lair married the Hon. A.H. Ward, famous lawyer who also served in the Reconstruction Congress; Arabella Lair married John Burton Maude of St. Louis; Mary Lair married Captain James M. Givens, Confederate officer; Frances Hubbard Lair married Rev. A. B. Griffith of Ohio; Lida Lair married Achilles Martin. These children of John Wesley Lair and Catherine Smiser Lair lived in "Boscobel" until the close of the War Between the States and the death of their father, John Wesley Lsir. Their childhood there as told me by my mother, Helen Lair Ward, was delightful. A small school for the many Lair children in the neighborhood was conducted on the Charles Lair farm and the little Lairs would be accompanied through the woods by one of the slave women, the school being a great treat. Their mother's parents, Martha Lair Smiser and George Smiser, lived across the Licking River and they made almost daily visits there where "Grandmother's sweet-cakes and goodies were eaten with relish." Aunt Lida Lair Martin told how frightened she was if her Grandfather Smiser spoke loud to them in his broken English. When they went on these visits, one of the slave women would accompany them to the river's edge, then calling: "Hello the boat. Hello the boat" and Grandma Patsy's servant would come from the other side in the boat and take them across. It was also delightful to sleep in Grandma Patsy's trundle bed and to feel the cozy warmth of the heavy curtains of the fourposter bed above. While the Wesley Lairs were there and the children were small,a strange woman appeared at the door of the home. She was dressed in rags, her hair tousled, and she spoke "utterly and was not easily understood. The kindly John Wesley Lair learned enough from her to know that she was homeless, without relatives, and wanted a place to stay. Having a vacant cabin on the place, he gave it to her to use, gave her chickens, pigs, a cow, and Catherine Lair gave the woman enough to make her comfortable in the house. The woman tended her garden, milked her cow, seemed to get along well, but had nothing to say to any who came to her little house. As this was the time of witchcraft in the New England states, some people in the neighborhood and especially the slaves on the Lair places nearby, believed the woman to be a witch and began to tell all sorts of tales of looking in the window and seeing her milking dishrags. About that time, some cows in the neighborhood went dry. They said the witch had cast a spell over the cows and the witch was getting the milk from her dishrags. Then the horses often stalled in the road near the house of the witch. As the tales grew taller and the feeling against the woman grew greater, John Wesley Lair came to her defense, calming the fears of the slaves by placing his hand on the horses' neck and the superstitious thought he broke the spell. Soon the woman was left to her little home and garden without bodily harm having been done. When she died, she was buried in the garden at "Boscobel" and the marker stated simply: "The Wandering Woman." This account as told by Paul S, Ward is as follows: "When the Proclamation of President Lincoln was published, John Lair, with the paper in his hand, went out to the farm bell which hung on the tall pole midway between the house and the Negro quarters, pulled three times as in calling the blacks out for orders. They assembled in front. Then, addressing them, he said, "Boys and girls, our President has issued a proclamation which declares you all to be free men and women. I know you can't know what that means. It means you can go anywhere to work and for anyone you like, that needs help. Miss Kittie and I have taught you all you know, gardening, farm work, spinning, weaving, knitting, sewing, and you, Alex, carpentry and smithing. We have planned ahead for meat, vegetables and all food and warm, comfortable clothing and shoes, and shelter, everything you need. If you want to leave us, you can take clothes, furniture and chattels you using; they are yours. But if you decide to stay, we will go on planning the same as now. I will pay you the top pay for freemen." When he finished, has eyes and those of his black folks were wet with tears. Only one mulatto girl left. When the daughters of John Wesley Lair were grown and their many parties made the stone house crowded, a wing was added with a hall and parlor downstairs and bedrooms upstairs. It was from that house that the daughters married and went to homes of their own, and the farm was sold after the death of John Wesley Lair who died on hls knees in prayer in 1869. His wife, Catherlne Smiser Lair, died in Cynthiana. 8. The eighth child of John Lair and Sallie Custer Lair was Sarah, who married James W. Berry of Harrison County. Their children were: Rhoda Berry married W. W. Chamberlain; Sarah Frances Berry married T. W. Bardy; Willie M, Berry, a daughter, married Claude Cantrill. John Lair, born in Virginia; Revolutionary soldier; brought his family, slaves, livestock and wordly goods to the wi1derness of Kentucky to settle on his lands in Harrison County in 1791 and to become a prosperous farmer and citizen of that section. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CATHERINE LAIR NEWMAN Catherine Lair, second child of the immigrants, Matthias and Catharina Lair, born in Pennsylvania in 1747, married Walter Newman. They were the parents of ten children, their oldest being Jonathan, born in 1768. Although Catherine Lair Newman did not come to Kentucky to make her home, her son Jonathan did come to Jessamine County, Kentucky, in 1793. In Virginia he married Hannah Spears and to this union were born seven children. David Newman, born in 1794 and their oldest child, was a distiller of peach brandy, a tanner, a breeder of horses, owned a blacksmith shop and was a Justice of the Peace. He was a large slave owner, many being valued by him as high as $1,000. He built a tavern on the Kentucky River, a ferry and warehouses for shipping down the "mucky River. David Newman married Esther Huston Boggs, built his beautiful Colonial house known as "Cedar Grove" in 1820." lt has been lived in by six generations, Mrs. Peyton Welch and her son, Robert, being the present occupants. Built high on a hill, the proportions of this exquisite house; the graceful Paladian windows, the portico supported by four white square pillars with a fan transom of leaded panes over the "double witch" front doors, indeed make this house an architect's delight. As in the case of "The Cedars" built by Charles Lair in 1828, this houee is also built of hand-made bricks, fashioned by the slaves on the place . Floors are of wide ash, the wood-work Carved and the hand-rail on the staircase is of wild cherry. On the first floor there is a parlor, dining room and two bedrooms and other bedrooms are on the second floor. The back door of the hall opens onto a porch which extends across the back of the house and leads to the stone kitchen with its walls two feet in thickness. There is a hand-made walnut press beside the great chimney that measures eight feet in breadth. The crane still hangs in the open fireplace. The Cellar shows great beams that are tree trunks with the bark left on Along the walls of the cellar lie hollowed logs used in bygone days to salt down the meat or for drying apples and vegetables for winter use, The beautiful house is surrounded by immense cedar trees, many eight feet in girth, hence the name "Cedar Grove." "The Cedars" passed out of the family's hands in 1950; "Boscobel" in 1869; "Smiser House" was sold many years ago. "Cedar Grove" is now the only house lived in by Lair descendants continuously in the state of Kentucky. Records show immense tracts of land in Kentucky owned by Jonathan Newman in Estill, Casey and in Jessamine Counties. Walter Newman who married Catherine Lair, the daughter of the immigrants Matthias and Catharina Lairs and his son, Jonathan Newman, were members of the First Independent Company in Dunmore's War. See Virginia History, May 1936, Vol. XLIV, page 102. Walter Newman served as private in the Virginia Militia. Although the son and the grandson of Catherine Lair Newman, Jonathan and David Newman, were the first in their line to settle in Kentucky, they selected for their lands a location some forty miles from the homes of the uncles, Matthias and John in Harrison County and Andrew in Lincoln County. Jonathan Newman came over the Wilderness Road into Kentucky as did his uncle, Andrew Lair, eighteen years before; he possessed thousands of acres of land; built a handsome house as his cousin, Charles Lair, had done, and his descendants became the prominent citizens in their community. It is to be noted that the four children of the immigrants, Matthias and Catharina Lair, described in the preceeding pages of this story, are not taken in the order of their birth dates, but in the order of their coming into Kentucky. First came Andrew, the Indian fighter in 1775, to be followed in 1791 by his two brothers, Matthias and John, and in 1793 by their nephew, Jonathan Newman, who took up vast lands in Jessamine County. But little is known of the other four children of Matthias and Catharina, as they did not come to this state and traces of them have been lost. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- JOSEPH LAIR Joseph Lair, first child of Matthias and Catharina Lair, the immigrants, was born in Pennsylvania in 1745. He married Persis Warren in Virginia and moved to Llcking County, Ohio, dying there in 1826. Joseph Lair was undoubtedly in the Revolutionary War as were his three brothers, but there are no records of his service in Kentucky and probably could be found in Virginia. It is interesting to learn that the census of 1820 taken in Monroe Twp., Licking Co., Ohio, shows Joseph Lair and his wife both listed as "over 45 yrs of age." Esther Lair, the eleventh child of Joseph Lair and his wife, Persis Lair, was born in Rockingham County, Virginia, January 9, 1799, and died some time after the census of 1850 as she is then listed with her husband, Preston Coulter, in Crawford County, Illinois. Their oldest child was born in Licking County, Ohio, in 1821. For this information we are indebted to Mrs, Addie Baker Stowell, a descendant. An interesting story handed down in the Newman family and related by Mrs. Peyton Welch, a descendant, is that a daughter of Catherine Lair Newman went to Ohio to live. While she and her child were on a visit to her Uncle Joseph Lair in Licking County, Ohio, the Indians killed her husband and a number of people in the settlement, and all were buried in one grave. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ELIZABETH LAIR TRUMBO But little is known of this daughter of the immigrants, Matthias and Catharina Lair, but we do know that she married Richard Trumbo, Jr. She died before 1799, as is shown by the will of her mother. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MARY LAIR Mary Lair, daughter of the immigrants, Matthias and Catharina Lair, married Ambrose Ruddle, a relative of Captain Isaac Ruddle of Ruddle'e Fort, and it is said that they were in that fort at the time of the attack by the British and Indians June 22, 1780. We have no records of descendants of this daughter. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MARGARET LAIR CUSTER This daughter of the immigrants, Matthias and Catharina Lair, married Jacob Custer in 1781. Records show two daughters: Dorah Custer who married a Mr. Corcoran and moved to Alabama, and Catherine Custer who married Charles Chrisman and had one daughter, Kittie, who married a Dr. Gray. Kentucky was admitted to statehood in 1792 and stood alone for four perilous years on the frontier of civilization. Her statehood was followed by the admission of Tennessee in 1796 and by Ohio in 1803. Thus Kentucky led the way to the West and the settlers pushed across the confluent to take up their lands where the great states of California, Oregon, Colorado and Texas were later carved. With the same intrepid spirit their ancestors had shown when they came over the Wilderness Road and the Buffalo Trace into Kentucky, the Lalr descendants of the fourth, fifth and the sixth generations have made their homes throughout the West and have placed their names in the annals of its history. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- AUTHORITIES CITED Menzel's "The History of Germany" "The Thirty Years War" by Schiller "Blue Rhine, Black Forest" by Louis Untermeyer "A Book of the RHine" by S.

Before I get started, let me bring two errors (mine alone) to your attention. I misread my tombstone images. The actual stones read: Valentine Hart Born Sep 3 1769 Died Sep 21 1859 Aged 90 years 18 days Mary Hart wife of Valentine Hart Born Oct 7, 1775 Died Apr 29, 1862 86 years 6 months and 22 days I used my genealogy program to recalculate those dates and both agree with the stones. It has been several years since I visited these stones. They are a few miles northeast of Wytheville, VA. They are located on a flat pasture (bottom land) in the southern edge of Cove Mountain. When I last was there, the property was on the farm of a Dr. Zigler. I am not sure if he is still there. I am not sure if copies will turn out, but I will be more than happy to send copies to both of you if you will send me your addresses. I can say is that the Hart's picked a beautiful location for a home site (and burial location). The area looks south across a wide, perfectly flat creek bottom, into a very steep Cliffside with mountains in the distance as well as having mountains behind them. I grew up in Wythe Co. and I still miss those mountains. I understand that there is a reference to Valentine and Mary in a series of books by Mary B. Kegley, "Early Adventures on the Western Waters" Vol. III, pages 671-673. They are also listed on the Wythe County death register book, page 14. I have not seen either of these references, but I am sure that they are correct. You will not believe the amount of requests that my Rootsweb entry has generated and one person has already made me aware of my errors (I found them first). I hope this material will help both of you in your research. I keep hoping for a breakthru on my research line. If you find any information on a Valentine Brookman (sometimes Bruckmann) who also lived in Wythe County in this time period, please let me know. I traced him to Wythe County in the 1820s but I cannot find where he came from. Please keep in touch and I will sent your copies.

It's too long and I always felt the chances of finding something great was pretty slim. I was amazed to find the information about the graves. If you would forward Earl's letter, I would appreciate it.My Joseph Hart married Sarah McFarson (might really be McPherson or some other variant) in Belmont Co, Ohio 10 Nov 1814. This is according to the marriage record that is recorded in Vol B, p. 69 of the Belmont Co. Ohio marriage records. However, in bible records it says they were married ? Oct 1814. Take your pick.Sarah is buried in the Forest Cemetery in Oskaloosa, Mahaska Co, Iowa and Joseph is buried in the Bayless Cemetery, Cedar Township, Lee County, Iowa. Joseph is buried next to his daughter Sarah Ann Hart Hyde and his son John Hart. I would love to share information with you. Now is a busy time for me, but I will do the best I can.Margaret ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ From: "Margaret Gee" To: Subject: Hart Graves Date: Fri, 8 Dec 2000 21:22:01 -0600 John, What did you think of the discovery of the Valentine Hart graves?

I tried the other one from 1998 also, may come back as a fatal error address: I am a double MARKLEY, my third gr grandmother was Mary Ann MARKLEY SIEBERT who died in 1851 and is buried in Sandy Corners Cemetery on Avery Rd. Her parents were Mary "Polly" KURTZ and Peter MARKLEY, Mary Ann's dau Catherine Siebert was raised by Catherine and Jacob MOCK. Catherine married Lemuel BALL. I have pictures of all the MOCKs taken while they were young first married. My photos date back to 1860's. We have a MOCK cousin here who also was for a while, into genealogy. I've been researching this family for over 10 years. What about Susie DAWSON, I remember her son Barney. Have a picture of Linnie Spicer in a bathing suit. Do you have a copy of the Joseph MARKLEY manuscript, written about 1920? Catherine SIEBERT BALL helped on that project. My maiden name is HOUSEBERG, both of my paternal grandparents were thru Joseph and Susannah MARKLEY and I have updated Susannah lineage a couple of more generations. Please, I hope this gets to you!

Thanks for your reply and the up-date news..always interesting about life on the Islands. I put a little more time into Bunyan/Breedlove search on the BEDFORD-L rootsweb and came up with the following assistance. I have not contacted the Harlington Heritage Trust (address given) mentioned by Lisa Waddup because it seems Harlington Manor was where J.Bunyan was "detained" on his first arrest...There is also another site (Angelfire) as some up-date-accounting (of The Breedlove Papers) though pretty much the same (material) though contacting the owner mention was the papers were given to him years ago by his father...who seems to have an abundance of old papers, books, etc. that has offered to look-see- what may be of help to determine the authencity of these papers. Browsing I also found the first President of Harvard College (1640) Henry DUNSTER ..from Eng. wrote about J.Bunyan(no follow up) and a Jeremiah Chaplin "Riches of Bunyan the Hand of Jesus"(?) 60 books written by Bunyan himself(?) About a hundred or so people named after him on the webpages--many lineages there. Hope this helps if it's new to you...

It will all be worth it once I am done. More later,Sally From: "DS Houseberg" |To: Subject: My grandmother Date: Mon, 28 May 2001 20:24:43 -0700 Pearl BROWN HOUSEBERG was best friends with Linnie, from what I understood. They grew up together as Anna and Mary, my greatgrandmother were also best friends. Mary's mother Catherine was raised by the Mock's after her parents both died, Catherine was only 4 at the time and John Ezekiel was about 2 if even that. I grew up knowing that Mock Rd was named after our family. One of the bonuses of having grandmother's who wanted you to know the family history and being the oldest grandchild on both sides. And thank goodness the pictures were saved. A lot of them are tin-types. My cousin has the albums, I copied all the pictures last fall so we would each have a set. You will be amazed at what I have. The old place off of Avery Rd is just now being turned into a housing project this year. It made me sad but I knew it would happen eventually. At least I got to go out there a lot before this happened. Another sister who lived out there for a while was Rachel MARKLEY CRING. She was the oldest of Peter and Mary KURTZ MARKLEY's children. Do you have any of your MARKLEY lineage at all? I have a ton of that. Mary KURTZ MARKLEY lived with Catherine & Jacob MOCK and helped raise the kids. She is buried with them in the Dublin !OOF Cemetery. Also there is Michael MOCK, Jacob's brother. GEORGE MOCK just passed away two years ago. I researched for a while with his daughter Dottie CRABTREE. Want to know how small the world is, in 1957 my family moved out on Leonard Avenue. I use to walk to Eastlawn Cemetery all the time as that is where a lot of my family is buried. My great grandmother, grandmother, great Aunt and two step grandfathers and a step great grandfather. I knew right where Amvet village was at the time. Did you go to Eastmore? My sister Sonnie HOUSEBERG was in their first graduation class, or did you go to Mifflin? I graduated from Linden McKinley in 1956. I only have Camille in your family line, that is where Joseph MARKLEY's book ended. I have managed to collect a lot of information however. But don't have anything knew on the FRANK's. Did manage to get John Ezekiel's stuff updated a little bit a couple of years ago, (more like 6 or 7) I started doing this in 1990. With your help I can get the MOCK's updated a lot more I hope. We haven't located Michael MOCK's burial place, some of the MOCK's were buried at McKendree Methodith Church on Cleveland Avenue between Oakland Park and Innis Rd., but the stones are all gone. All we have is an old listing. The MOCK's were related in another branch to the INNIS Family also, have known that since I was a child too. Also, Catherine MARKLEY MOCK is the one who picked the homestead out in Washington Twp. She had a choice between there and somewhere along what is now Broad St., close to Franklin Park, from what I was told as a child.

No charge, glad to do it. I enjoyed receiving your information. I know some of the data is duplicated, but for some reason I couldn't get my soft ware to print all the information that I wanted to send on the one bio sheet. Throw out what you don't want or need, or do whatever you so desire with it.I do think it fills in some data for you from the Philander Chase side. I do not have proof, but I think Philander was named after a well noted minister in Ohio by the name of Philander Chase. I can't think why they would come up that name,unless it belonged to someone.I use to live in Linda,CA. I have two nieces living at Davis. There is another cousin living up in Lompoc, Sandy Blair, she is Jessie Jo Britton's daughter. Also, a cousin in Tulare or Visalia, I get them confused. Her last name is Shannon. You have probably heard of the Shannon Trucking Company. Her husband is a son of the owner, or maybe he is owner now, I don't know. Also think they are large land owners. Her first name is Sharon.

As I looked the charts over, I am back to my original thought, Sarah Brunk that married Charles Field, I think Charles must have died young, or fairly young, then she married Noah Franklin Britton, for his wife is a Fields. What do you think? That would bring the Brunks again into the Britton genealogy. Just a thought. Like I said, I have a will that lists, Charles Fields as a notary.

I can only confirm thru documentation that Margaret Grace and Daniel Brunk were husband and wife and their subsequent children, plus their daughter Susannah married Robert Elliott and their children.The information I have collected thru the Internet, etc. is as follows, but I do not have documents to prove it:James Grace died 1796 in Rockingham County, VA. Do not know who his spouse was. They had the following children:Margaret Grace, born around 1780 in Rockingham County, VA or Maryland, married January 1, 1797 to Daniel Brunk at Harrisonberg, Rockingham County, VA and died before 1830 in Norwich Township, Franklin County, Ohio.Elizabeth Grace born January 20, 1780 in Rockingham County, VA, married Benjamin Britton on December 24, 1799 in Rockingham County, VA. She died March 22, 1846 in Franklin County, Ohio, and is buried in Wesley Chapel Cemetery, Norwich Township, Franklin County, Ohio.Mary Grace born in Rockingham County, VA, married Thomas Gilmore on June 18, 1801 in Rockingham County, VA and then married Nathaniel G. Hord. Eleanor Grace born August 15, 1786 in Rockingham County, VA, married Robert Travis, Jr. in 1803 in Rockingham County, VA and died May 7, 1849 in Marion, Marion County, Ohio.I hope this is helpful to you. Could you tell me more about the Grace family who lived next door to Susannah and Robert?I have been to the Wesley Chapel Cemetery some years ago, which is outside of the capitol city - Columbus, Ohio - in Norwich Township near Hilliard, Ohio. Many of the Elliotts and their relatives are buried in the little cemetery behind the church.Nice talking to you and I would love to hear more or help in any way I can.Joan From: Rjsturn@aol.com |Date: Wed, 30 Oct 2002 16:23:42 EST Subject: Re: The Grace Family To: jwgrace99@yahoo.com Thanks for your prompt reply. It does seem that somehow we are probably cousins. As you probably know Margaret Grace married Daniel Brunk and they had Susannah Brunk, who married Robert Elliott. They had a son named Jackson Elliott, who married Catherine Runkel(s), and one of their daughters, Effie Elliott, was my grandmother. Most of the Elliotts, from Norwich Township, are buried in Wesley Chapel Cemetery and did not move too far from there. One of Robert's children, David Elliott, had his home across the road from Wesley Chapel Church/Cemetery. That was sold and the ground is now a park.As I live in Arizona I would appreciate hearing from you if you find out anything more. I will keep in touch if I find anything more.

I have a scanner and I just scan the pictures on to photo paper and that makes it alittle more readable. Now refresh my memory, please. I have it that James Grace was the father of Elizabeth,"Betsy" Grace. I am correct? Also, was Ferdinand Lehr Grace a brother to Elizabeth? Betsy or Elizabeth is the lady who married Benjamin Franklin Britton, which is my lineage. Didn't Betsy have a sister that married a Brunk?By the way, what is the nationality of Ferdinand Lehr Grace? Is it French? I was trying to do some research on the Grace family, and I guess I didn't have the right information, for I was not able to get much.I will experiment with the attachment instructions, but in between times, I will just print this stuff out. I will send you the Britton information and pictures of Philander Chase, son of Benjamin Franklin Britton, my g.grandfather, his wife, (not a good picture), my grandmother, Sally Britton Cooper and my mother, Mamie Allie Cooper Brown. I think I have a really good picture of my grandmother;s sister, Veda. Both of those ladies were very pretty. Oh yes, I have a picture of my mom, sister, Olyn, and her brother, Joe. I think they were in their teens.I will try and get these off to you this coming week. If I don't, I have more company coming and I won't get it done before the holidays. I know I am always anxious to get the genealogy info.That is interesting you live in Oakland. My husband and I lived in Loma Linda,CA for 30 years.

Sandy From: "N.Johnston" |To: "John Grace" Subject: Re: Brittons Date: Sat, 23 Nov 2002 19:25:08 -0600 Hi John:Glad that you could use the information. Yes, I would be very happy to have information on the Grace family. It appears to me, such as it is, that most of my ancestry were protestants and were always moving ahead for religious freedom. According to some Britton history, Brittons/Britton is of Roman origin and they came up the coast of France, i.e., Coast of Brittany,then on to Southern England and into Ireland. Probably due to land grants or whatever, as was the case for alot of my relatives. I wander if the Grace/Britton combination started in England and then on to Ireland. The Brittons were listed as being military, scholars and ministers. I know that there is alot of military in the more immediate family, as well as the ministers. Teachers were a very prominent profession. It is all just quite interesting.I wouldn't be too surprised if the Grace and Britton family didn't come from the Pennsylvania area. When I lived back East, I found a book that listed all the Brittons and they were listed in the New England states. The Grace family was mentioned in the book with the Brittons, believe as Benjamin's wife, for that was further proof of Philande's parents. I was short on time and didn't get to spend much time researching.Again, anything you would like to share, I would appreciate receiving.If you would like a Xerox copy of the information on Britton migration, I would be happy to copy it off for you. It is about 15 pages in length, otherwise I would type it out and send e-mail.May you have a happy Thanksgiving and holiday season.
