WOODIN, Gilbert P. son of O. and E. Woodin died 6 April 1865 age 17.
Orson was the son of Sally Woodin and husband Arcie (probably Archie—many descendants). Sally came to Stilson Hill (out of Sugargrove) from Vermont driving a team of oxen and brought with her seven children. After she was here a while she married a Mr. Pomeroy. There is no data on Orson except a list of his children: Delia, Gilbert, Philena (twin); Philander (twin). He married Mary Rowley and had Mark, Clyde and Ralph who all died young and Thad who went to Oklahoma and as far as is known, left no survivors. Children of Sally and Archie available at Fenton Library.
WRIGHT, Sally, wife of Jacob Wright, died 1 May 1851, age 76. (The Wrights of Wrightsville, PA do not list any Jacob born circa 1775 though here is a Joab born between 1771 and 1776.)
A94 STICKLAND, Wanted (1) a list of the children of Marinus Strickland and wife Julia Lucas with dates of birth and death; (2) What religion was he? (3) Where was he married? (some of his children were born around 1850) (4) Is there a family Bible listing this family? (5) Is there a family crest? (6) Marinus was the son of Samuel Kelley Strickland and Pamelis or Amelia Waltz. They are buried in Cottage, NY. What is the name of Samuel’s father? Understand he came from Cherry Valley in Otsego County, specifically Salt Springfield. (7) Is there a Revolutionary service in this family? (8) Marinus taught penmanship. Where and when? (9) I understand there were 11 ministers in the family. How can I find out who they were? Some of the Stricklands came in to Chautauqua County. PH
A95 NEWTON, John, wife Sally Loomer, came to Busti 1832 from Norwich, NY. They had 5 children. One was Wm. M. who married Prudence C. Barber. Who were the others? What are the birth and death dates for John and Sally? Note from Fenton: John is buried in grave No 1 on lot 167 in the Busti Village Cemetery without a stone. No data on records. MPL
A96 BARBER, Elihu, wife unknown, was a resident of Town of Poland. They had a daughter Prudence C. who married William M. Newton. Wanted dates for Elihu and also for his wife and her name. Wanted names and dates for other children of Elihu. MFL (see answers)
A97 ATWOOD, Solomon Heath, born town of Tryingham, Berkshire Co., MA. Married Canaan, NY (?) 2-7-168. Betsey Strong of West Stockbridge. Lived Egremont, Berkshire County til 1811 when they moved to Victor, Ontario Co., NY. Served in the War of 1812 from Victor. Between 1829 and 1837 he moved to Harmony. His hymn book is dated "Harmony 1837." Their farm was on the south side "of the road a mile or so east of Niobe and on the road running east and west through it." (Is this near Cherry Hill—Kortwright?) In their old age they went to the town of Busti to live with their daughter Amelia who had married Edward Handy. They lived where there is now a golf club (Mapelhurst). There Betsey died, 24 March 1872, and was buried in Tillotson Cemetery near Niobe. Solomon went to Michigan to live with his son, Alfred Stron Atwood at Alma. He died there 24 Nov. 1874 and is buried in the Riverside Cemetery there. Query—where was the birthplace of Betsey and when was she born? Answer from Fenton: Betsey was 87-0-20 when she died according to her stone so she must have been born 4 March 1785. From another genealogy I recall that West Stockbridge was either 2 or 4 miles from Stockbridge and all records were kept at the Stockbridge church. Betsey Atwood Wilbor was her daughter.
A95 NEWTON-LOOMER MPL: John and Sally Loomer Newton lived on the Burton Road in Busti across the ravine from the present Carroll Blodgett farm, then the Hoyt farm. Among their children was Dr. Oman Newton. His wife was Fidelia (Delia) Blodgett, born March 22, 1829, died May 24, 1918, the daughter of Cephas and Sally (Hughes) Blodgett of Ellicott and Poland townships. Fedelia married (1) David Conic of Falconer area, (2) Dr. Oram Newton (3) Nathaniel Hurlbut (Blockville Cemetery, who died Sept. 3, 1873) (4) Aaron Scranton Jr. of Farmington Twp., Warren Co., PA. Delia is buried in the Foster Cemetery at Lander with Aaron Scranton Jr. Oman and Delia were the parents of one child, Meigs Charles Newton. In later life he went by the name of Charles but older people including his mother called him Meigs. The writer thinks that the 1855 census lists Delia and Meigs as lving with the John Newtons so that Dr. Newton is thought to have been dead by 1855. Delia was from the Falconer area. Further information on this family is in the Warren public Library under the "Starrett Records." They were provided by Ida Starrett Newton, second wife of Charles Meigs Newton married (1) Laura Scranton, daughter of Aaron Scranton Jr. by Aaron’s (1) wife Mary Cady. After Laura’s death he married Ida Starrett by whom he had a son named John. Charles lieved on the Jackson Run road, Warren County between Sugar Grove and North Warren. He inherited the formulas for extracts and medicines developed and peddled by his colorful grandfather Cephas Blodgett. Amng hem was "Blodgett’s Balm" which Charles advertised in the papers as "the greatest little pain killer of the age." Advise querist to look for probate records for John Newton at Chautauqua County Court House. May list the children. RCL
A96 Elihu C. Barber was born at Williston, NY 1 Feb. 1799, died Poland, Chaut. Co. 21 Jan. 1873. This is on his stone in the Myrtle Cemetery at Clark’s Corners. Beside him is Elizabeth wife of Elihu Barber born 27 Oct 1802 died 8 March 1893. Elizabeth should be recorded in the town clerk’s records. Mrs. Lauretta Hansen, Kennedy, NY 14747. Believe the charge is one dollar. Be sure to ask Mrs. Hansen to include the parent’s names.
EMS quoting the 1881 Chautauqua County Atlas and from family records: Hiram E. Knapp, a school supervisor, bought the Palmer Phillips farm in Busti which is the one by the Knapp Cemetery. His children by his first wife live in Warren, PA. He married (2) Mary Ann McKinley (Williamson) Matthews widow of John Matthews. He was the son of Lorenzo Matthews buried in the old Frank Settlement Cemetery. John is buried in the Busti Village Cemetery and Mary Ann beside him. By John she had Elizabeth Jane Matthews, a long time corsetiere in Jaemstown and Anna who married Dexter Mead of Busti. Anna lived in the Knapp home for a while after her marriage.
PHILLIPS, Ethel was a man. The Storams were Negroes and Sidney Wills is listed as a Negro in the census records. There was abolitionist activity in that area and these people may have been involved with it. RL
