Notes for Judge Joseph Malin:

Joseph Malin was the son of William Malin and Esther Berry, of Quaker

background, and Welsh background on his father's side. William Malin

was descendent from Randal Malin, one of the first emigrants to Chester

PA.

Judge Malin, at the age of 15, was apprenticed to Samual Russell in

Jefferson Co VA on 30 Nov 1808, Charlestown VA signed by his father,

William Malin and Samuel Russell and witnessed by Jacob Crawell and

Nathaniel Offut. . He was to learn the art, trade, and calling of a saddler.

He was to receive six weeks of schooling per year and five dollars, or one

week in harvest each year.

A clipping from the Madison Daily Free Press, February 20, 1872, reads:

"A Document of Ye Ancient Time. Our old friend Judge Malin has

handed us the following indenture of his apprenticeship, which we

publish as a relic of the ancient manners and customs of our fathers.

Very few men in this State, if any, have, we presume, such a document as

this in their possession. The Judge cherishes it, together with his

discharge from the army in 1812, with great care. how well he profited

by this ridged discipline his prosperity in life will testify, and Solomon's

2

injunctions verified. The following is the document:

" This indenture made on the 30th day of November, 1808, in the year of

our Lord 1808, witnesseth that William Malin, of Jefferson county,

Virginia, hath put and placed, and by these presents doth put and bind out

his son, Joseph Malin; who, on the 30th day of November, 1814, next,

will be of the age of 21 years, as an apprentice to Samuel Russell, to

learn the art, trade and mystery of a saddling. The said Joseph Malin,

after the manner of an apprentice, to dwell with and live with the said

Samuel Russell and serve the said Samuel Russell from (the date of this

indenture) until the 30th day of November, 1814, in the year 1814, at

which time the said apprentice, if he should be living will be 21 years of

age; during all which time and term the said apprentice his said master

shall well and faithfully serve, his secrets keep, and all his lawful

commands everywhere, at all times, readily obey. He shall do no damage

to his said master, nor wilfully suffer any, to his knowledge, be intended,

he shall give his said master reasonable notice thereof. he shall not waste

the goods of his said master, nor send them unlawfully to any one. At

cards, dice, or any unlawful game, he shall not play. Fornication he shall

not commit, nor matrimony contract during the said term. Taverns, and

places of gaming, he shall not frequent. He shall not get drunk, or swear,

on any account. From the service of his said master he shall not absent

himself, but in all things, and at all times, he shall behave himself as a

good and faithful apprentice ought to do, during the whole time or term

aforesaid. And the said Samuel Russell, on his part, doth hereby

promise, convenent and agree to teach and instruct said apprentice, or

cause him to be taught and instructed in the art, trade and calling of a

saddler, by the best way or means he can; and also teach and instruct said

apprentice, or cause him to be taught and instructed, to read, write and

cipher, as far as the rule of three, if said apprentice be capable to learn;

and shall well and faithfully find and provide for the said apprentice

The copy of the newspaper is very old and torn, with pieces missing. In

the book, HISTORY OF SWITZERLAND COUNTY, under the Judge's

profile, some of the above information is given, including the names of

the two witnesses: Jacob Crawell and Nathaniel Offut.

Since Joseph enlisted for the War of 1812 on about the 20th of August,

1814, at Charlestown VA, it would appear the Samuel Russell released

Joseph early from his apprenticeship, as he was to serve until November

3

30, 1814. Joseph served as a private, being discharged at Charlestown

on or about the 30th day of September 1814. In the affidavit given by

William ....... and Humphrey Keyes, they state he was released in the city

of Washington. Joseph was a soldier in "the Volunteer Corps of

Riflemen from Jefferson County Virginia under the command of Captain

George W. Humphrey in the war with Great Britain declared by the

United States on the 18th day of June 1812, and that they are acquainted

with Joseph Malin and that the said Joseph Malin was a private in said

company, and that he served as a soldier in said company for a term of

more than fourteen days, in actual service, that he volunteered in said

company on or about the 20th August, 1814 ...."

The Treasury Department, third auditor's office showed that Joseph

Malin, Private, served from 20th Aug. 1814 to the 24th of September

1814, and was listed on the rolls of Capt. Geo. Humphrey's Company of

VA Militia.

After Joseph was released from service he next shows up in Urbana,

Champaign Co. Ohio. His father, William, also moved to Urbana - it is

not known if they came together or not. Joseph married Nancy Elizabeth

Mendenhall, daughter of Dr. John and Betsy (Jenning) Mendenhall on

August 4, 1815. In 1816 Joseph and Elizabeth moved to Switzerland Co.

Indiana, becoming one of the founders of Vevay. They probably were

part of the group who arrived with Elizabeth's father, Dr. John

Mendenhall (see John Mendenhall notes.)

The book EARLY OHIO SETTLERS, shows Joseph, as well as Dr. John

Mendenhall, his father-in-law, and James Dalmazzo purchasing land:

Joseph was very active in business. he excelled in the quality of

manufacturing saddles, " with some of them being taken across the

Atlantic Ocean, and hundreds of miles to the interior of the continent of

Europe, where they were much admired." One of the first established

businesses in Vevay was Joseph's saddle and harness making business.

Not only were they sold around the world but they were in great demand

all over the country and throughout the bordering counties of Kentucky.

He had started his saddling business which he continued to carry on until

about 1833 or 1834. After Joseph gave up the saddle making business

his brothers-in-law, Miles Mendenhall, and James W. Cole, continued,

with his son, Ira Malin, finally carrying on the business alone for a while,

then taking on a partner, Mr. Browning.

He also served as a Justice of the Peace "when the old style of 'knock

down and drag out' was the order of the day, he was peculiarly practical

in quelling the rioters. With an ax handle in hand he rushed into the

crowd, commanding the peace, at the same time dealing blows right and

left, enforcing the command." He also served as an Associate Judge

(1829-1835), Sheriff and Treasurer(1821-25). In August 1841 William

Price was elected for two years, served but a short time, and gave the

office to Joseph Malin, who served as Deputy for Mr. Price.

Joseph Malin, Jacob Malin (his brother) and Ira Mendenhall (among

others) endorsed a note signed by Lawrence Nihell, concerned with the

Ohio Canal Lottery. The note was dated 27th day of January 1819.

He was also known for being in the forefront in providing relief for the

unfortunate.

Joseph was also lived in Florence, Switzerland, IN, where he was one of

the early merchants. Florence started in 1817 when it was laid off by

Benjamin Drake and called New York. Additions were subsequently

made by Joseph Malin, William Campbell and Benjamin L. Robinson.

5

Joseph sold his interest in the store, in 1856, to his clerks, Simon

Beymer and Lemuel Bledsoe, not demanding any money at the time of

the sale, but trusting to the young men's honor in regard to the final

payment. He also give them the benefit of his credit with the wholesale

commercial houses of Cincinnati.

Joseph also was a merchant, for quite some time, of the villages of

Fairview and East Enterprise. In Quercus Grove, started in 1815, "Jacob

Harris built the first house of any consequence in the village, and also

kept the first store, which he conducted for two years; then sold out to

Joseph Malin (ca 1817?). Malin afterward sold out to John Lampton."

In July and August of 1874 Joseph and his wife, Harriet N., of Jefferson

Co. IN, conveyed quit claims to Benjamin M. Bledsoe (for $50 - for Lots

14, 15 & 46 in Malins addition to the Town of Florence and lots 41 & 42

in Original Florence); and Lettie R. Beymer ($50 - for Lots 42, 43, and

45 in Malin's addition to the town of Florence and lots 57 & 58 in

original Florence.

In the book, GENEALOGICAL SOURCES, by Dorothy L. Riker, "The

young man [William Campbell] soon after [1832] went with his brotherin-

law, William Protsman, to Cincinnati to buy the Protsman farm north

of Vevay. making the trip on horseback, they beat Joseph Malin who

traveled by steamboat bent on purchasing the same farm." Could this

Campbell family have been connected with Joseph's wife, Ann

Campbell?

According to a story in the History of Switzerland County, at the time of

the 1832 presidential election several people were talking about the

upcoming elections, when someone remarked that Jackson would be

elected without doubt. "Joseph Malin in his jocular manner remarked 'I

wish the snow would fall a foot deep the night before the election.' 'What

do you make that wish for Squire' someone enquired, to which Malin

replied -- 'So that these barefooted Jackson men could not get to the

election.' This created a great deal of merriment. (p. 175)

The Switzerland Lodge No. 122, A.F.&A.M. was chartered May 30,

1851 (Vevay) and Joseph Malin was listed as one of the Charter

Members.

The Vevay Reveille - Thursday, May 10, 1877 (sent from Barbara Malin)

"Joseph Malin died at his residence near North Madison, Ind. on the 1st

day of May, 1877 aged 83 years and 5 months. Mr. Malin was born at

Charlestown VA Nov. 30th 1793. In the year 1814 he came to Ohio

where William Malin, his father, had located near Urbana. In the year

1815 he was married to Nancy Mendenhall, daughter of Dr. John

Mendenhall. In the year 1816 he removed in company with Dr.

Mendenhall and the family to Vevay, Ind. In and near which place he has

resided until his removal to Madison. The Malins and Mendenhalls were

Quakers and came from England at a very early day in the settlement of

this country. Mr. Malin was married four times, of the five children who

reached mature age only two survive him, but a large number of grand

and great grandchildren remain. Mr. Malin had an extensive acquaintance

in this and adjoining counties. Everybody knew Judge Malin. He was one

of those old time, practical, business, matter-of-fact kind of man, who

always gave free expression to his convictions regardless of frowns or

smiles, and although his outspoken character made him enemies, yet the

masses honored him for his manly decision of what he thought to be right

or wrong. He possessed warm and kindly sympathies for the sick and the

unfortunate, the poor and needy he never turned away empty. He took a

special interest in worthy young men, no matter how ever poor they

might be; to build them up in business, who will ever revere his memory

with gratitude.

"Mr. Malin also possessed a broad and liberal spirit for the public good,

gave profusely of his means to build churches of all orders of faith;

although he had not been a member of any church for many years, yet he

viewed them as safeguards to the public prosperity, by no means to be

neglected. His mission on earth is finished - let us bow in humble

submission to the High behast.

"His remains were brought to Vevay on the 4th of May, when funeral

services were held in the Methodist Episcopal Church by the writer, in

the presence of a large number of sympathizing friends and neighbors;

after which his remains were conveyed to their final resting place in the

Vevay Cemetery.

"In behalf of the friends of the deceased, we tender sincere thanks to the

members of the Methodist Church, in kindly opening their house of

worship, and giving their presence, and also for furnishing music

appropriate to the occasion.

I.C. Smith

(Note: It would appear that no family members attended his funeral - yet

his 4th wife, Harriet, was still living and she at least would have been

there.)

Notes for William Malin:

William Malin served in the Revolutionary War. Records from VA state:

"Council Chamber February 2, 1785 -- I do certify, that William Malin is

entitled to the proportion of land allowed a Private of the State line, for

three years service." Signed P. Henry and Thos Meriwether. Warrant for

100 acres issued to the above February 3, 1785. (Ref. No 3730)

According to family history William was disowned by the Quakers for

fighting in the Revolutionary War. It was also stated that he was of

Welsh decent.

At one time William Malin lived in Charlestown, Frederick Co., VA

where he signed the indenture papers in November of 1808 for his son

Joseph, bounding him to Samuel Russell to learn the trade of saddle

maker.

From Charlestown William moved to Urbana, Champaign Co., Ohio,

living there until his death on 7 August, 1818. His first wife was Esther

Berry and nothing is known of her other then she was the mother of his

children: Jacob, Joseph, Mahlon and Mary.

William married Vashi Sharp on 18 July 1816 in Champaign Co. Ohio.

Sent from Barbara Malin: Estate record: Wednesday May 17, 1815

Champaign Co. OH, Adm on the estate of Joshua Malin dec was granted

to William Malin who together with Joseph Hedges and Joseph Malin his

surity gave bond in the sum of four hundred dollars for his faithful

administration and John Gutridge, Zephinah Lesse and Joseph Law an

appoints(?) appraisers to said estate. Would probably be related

somehow - cousin?

Received from Barbara Malin - William Malin's Will:

In checking over the Champaign County deeds that I have photocopies

of, I find that I have copies of three deeds for William Malin's land - one

when he purchased it in 1811 and two when it was sold by his estate's

executor John McAdam. Would you like me to send copies to you? Off

the immediate family as subject matter, this evening our genealogical

society speaker was Sandra Hargreaves-Luebking - title of her talk:

"Ladies of the Evening and Other Bright Lights". If you have a chance,

take the opportunity to hear a very good speaker. She'll be at our

seminar tomorrow too. I'm hoping for some jewel of information to help

get past the current walls in both my Malin and my Faulkner lines.

Anna Brown

On that same page in the History of Champaign County, is to be found

"William Malone was buried with Masonic honors August 18, 1818."

Could this have been our William Malin? An interesting thought.

13

Anna [William Malin died on 7 August 1818 in Champaign County OH

so dates would be correct.]

The passage I quoted is from the Beers 1881 History of Champaign

County, page 249; that book states that the Harmony Lodge was

represented in Cincinnati Jan 1, 1810, by its first Worshipful Master but

that the minutes were silent as to when the warrant for lodge operation

was granted. The first Masonic Lodge meeting convened in Urbana was

on Sep 20, 1809 at the court house.

Anna Brown

Following taken from "Early Settlers of Champaign County and

Surrounding Areas, Volume 1" by Pat Stickley & June Kiser - contains

weekly newspaper columns written by Champaign County Recorder

Warren Everhart, pages 101 & 102.:

"First Meeting of the Town Council, written October 9, 1957: The town

of Urbana was incorporated in 1836 [sic - I believe 1816] and under its

charter it assumed its corporate powers by electing its corporate offices at

an election held on March 2, 1816. The election resulted as follows:

George Fithian, mayor; recording clerk, A.R. Colwell; trustees, John

Reynolds, William Fyffe, William Glenn and Daniel Helmick; William

Niel, treasurer; John Wallace assessor; and WILLIAM MAHLIN, town

marshal. The election was certified by George Hill, Simon Kenton and

Anthony Patrick as judges and Samuel Ponge and William Patrick, clerks

of election." [Could this William Mahlin be our William Malin?]

Notes for Esther Berry:

A Thomas Berry was born 1718 in Ireland and died 1799 in VA. He

married 1st Esther Buchanan (born 1718-1755) and 2nd Esther Ward

after 1756. The family lived in the Augusta Co., VA area. (Information

was from Susan Michaelis).

Email from Barbara Martin - great, great granddaughter of Judge Joseph

Malin and Elizabeth Goddard:

"Esther Berry was born abt. 1772, father - Thomas Berry born 1718 in

Ireland and died 1799 in Virginia, Mother - Esther Ward, born about

1737 and married about 1772. Thomas married Esther Buchannan (born
