FOREWORD

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow if I can.

Pursuing it with weary feet,
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say

-----------J. R. R. Tolkien

I. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

At the heart of this genealogy is the hard work of many, many others. Numerous secondary sources have been used as a framework without which new research on the McCarty Family would have been impossible. To those persons, some living, many long since passed on, I am truly grateful. Their work is acknowledged at the conclusion of each entry.

Those rare genealogies, long out of print, have been used as a basis to keep alive a love of family. May those who follow this work, credit me as honestly as I have endeavored to acknowledge them.

I am deeply indebted to those persons and groups of persons who helped me acquire prime source materials: Evelyn Bryan, Evelyn and Laurence Higley, Donovan Champ McCarty, Rev. D. Gene Patterson, Carol Bird, Kermit Bird, Nedra Snyder at the Sullivan County Historical Society, Mr. Rupert at the Muncy Cemetery, the folks at the Library of Congress, Spruance Library, National Archives, Boston Public Library, Haverford College Library and the others, too numerous to mention, with whom I have spoken and corresponded over the years.

I am especially grateful to Louise Molyneux Woodhead who has contributed greatly to the success of this book. Her own writings and updates have been of invaluable help.

And, finally, I wish to thank my son, Charles David Bailey for his tireless efforts. In addition to many other things, he has copied every extant McCarty family gravestone in Quakertown, Muncy Bradford and Sullivan Counties.

II. THE BOOK AND ITS CONTENTS     

The Descendants of Silas McCarty and Sarah Carrell is divided into the ten generations which follow the line. In addition to the standard genealogical data, a number of historical sketches and essays have been added, allowing the reader to better understand the context of the world in which our ancestors have lived; to set the stage, so to speak. To that end, also, a number of appendices are to be found at the end of the book. They are in the chronological order of the text and the reader is referred to each at its appropriate time.

Once the reader has traced his or her own line, it is hoped that they will begin at the beginning and read through the fascinating history of the McCarty family, a chance to journey with explorers, missionaries and travelers in their own words. 

  III. ORGANIZATION

The numbering system in this book has been chosen: 

1. to establish a manner by which any individual may immediately and accurately be identified;

2. to clearly establish family lines and;

3. to facilitate the inclusion of additional family members or persons for whatever reason previously omitted.                                                                                   

Each generation (or chapter) is comprised of a set of family groups, parents and their children. Then, in each subsequent generation (or chapter), each of those children has his or her own individual listing with their own family group. In addition to giving each person an individual identity, the book is thereby set up for further expansion without disrupting its momentum.

The numbering system is quite simple. Each number represents a child in his or her birth order. This book begins with Silas and Sarah. Their children were: 1. Carrell; 2. James; 3. Silas; 4. Benjamin; 5. Lydia; 6. Elizabeth; 7. Hannah; 8. William; 9. Thomas; 10. Peter; and 11. Paul. Each of those numbers represents a first number of

all of the names in this genealogy. Most readers will be of either the 4 or 9 lineage, as those are the lines of which we have the most information to date. The 4 means you are descended through Benjamin, the 9 through Thomas. Here, then, is the way the rest of it works:

My number is 967(10)321

I am the first child of 967(10)32 Kenneth Lee Bailey, Jr.

He is the second child of 967(10)3 Gladys Maude McCarty

She was the third child of 967(10) Doctor Fremont McCarty

He was the tenth child of 967 Joel McCarty

He was the seventh child of 96 Joel McCarty

He was the sixth child of 9 Thomas McCarty

He was the ninth child of Silas McCarty and Sarah Carrell

In other words: find your number, remove the last digit, back up a chapter, and you'll find your parents; remove the next digit and back up a chapter, your grandparents, and so on...

Your own children will be your number plus their birth order.

So my children are 967(10)3211 and 967(10)3212.

Each listing begins with the bloodline name, regardless of gender, and carries through into the following generation. In the case of multiple marriages, the numbering of children does not re-begin, but continues according to bloodline.

In the case of family lines inter-marrying, each partner has an individual listing with his or her complete family grouping. In the next generation, however, those children are listed only under the number which falls the earliest in the lineage. 

For instance: If #765 married #87, their children would be found under 871, 872, 873, etc. because that line is the closest to Silas and Sarah.

For the reader's convenience there is a one-time reference to the other number:

7651 SEE #871       

            7652 SEE #872

            7653 SEE #873

                 ...and so on

While this might seem a bit troublesome, it was necessary, for the sakes of both brevity and indexing purposes. To help some, the Spouse Index at the end of the book cross-references intermarriage of lines where it occurs.

Within entries, every effort has been made to give information in the following order:

# Name; parents; place born; date born; place died; date died; burial; married to (name); parents; place born; date born; place died; date died; burial; other pertinent biographical information; sources; children in order of birth.

IV. LITERARY SOURCES

The pieces added at the beginnings of sections of the book were placed there for no other reason than this author likes them and believes them appropriate transitional material.

Before the Foreword and the Appendices are two versions of a poem by J.R.R. Tolkien, one near the beginning and one near the end of his Lord of the Rings. They fall at the beginning and end of a very long journey.

At the beginning of the genealogy proper and each generation are found sections of Charles Dickens' A Child's Story, which describes a different sort of journey.

Before the Introduction and Background is an anonymous poem from old Irish describing the members of Clan MacCaura or Carty.

 V. MOVING ON

This genealogy has been several years (to say nothing of ten generations) in the making. It is, to be sure, an unfinished history. We are busy researching Silas and Sarah's other children and the unfinished sections of Thomas and Elizabeth's family. There is a nearly definite relationship between this family and the branches in the Southeast. There is also a possible connection between us and a McCarty family in southern Canada. Also looming is the question of whether Billy the Kid (his mother was a McCarty!) is of our lines.

This is meant to be a living history and has been set up to readily accept both new and heretofore hidden persons and their stories. All contributions, corrections and comments are gratefully accepted and encouraged.

      ...The Road goes ever on...

 

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE MCCARTY HERITAGE

 

In chasing the red deer what step was the fleetest
In singing the love-song what voice was the sweetest
What breast was the foremost in courting the danger
What door was the widest to welcome a stranger
In friendship the truest, in battle the bravest
In revel the gayest, in council the gravest
A hunter today, and a victor tomorrow?
Oh! Who but a chief of the princely MacCaura!

 

THE NAME McCARTY

                                       The McCarty family is probably descended from the ancient family of MacCarthy, which was the dominant family in Desmond, or South Munster, Ireland. The MacCarthy (or McCarthy) family is said to descend from Milesius, King of Spain, through the line of his son, Heber. The founder of the family was Cormac, King of Munster, A.D.483. The ancient name was Carthann, which means "kindness." The chief of the sept was McCarthy More, Prince of Muskerry, King and Prince of Desmond, King of Cashel and Munster. The possessions of the McCarthys were located in the present counties of Cork, Limerick and Clare. The sept comprised the families of McCarthy More, McCarthy Riagh, O'Donovan, O'Keefe, O'Mahoney, McAuliffe, O'Cowley, O'Curry, O'Collins, O'Dunnady, McCartney, McCurten, McCutcheon, McHugh and O'Scanlon. The McCarthys took their name from Cartagh (Cartay), King of Desmond, A.D. 1100. Under the Irish Kings, and long after the advent of the Anglo-Norman invader, the McCarthy family maintained their princely prominence.

                                       They endured long contests for their independence against the Fitzgeralds, Earls of Desmond; the Butlers, Earls of Ormond, as well as other Anglo-Norman and English settlers, and held their title as Princes of Desmond, with considerable possessions down to the reign of Elizabeth I. They were divided into two great branches, the first being the McCarthy More, of whom Donal McCarthy was created Earl of Glenclare, or Clanclare, A.D. 1565, by Queen Elizabeth; the other branch, called the McCarthy Riagh, were princes of Carbery. Besides the Earls of Clanclare, the McCarthys were also created at various periods Barons of Valentia, Earls of Clancarthy, Earls of Muskerry and Earls of Montcashel, and had several strong castles in various parts of Cork and Kerry. It is told that the McCarthy More was inaugurated at Lisbon-nacuhir, in Kerry, at which ceremony presided O'Sullivan More and O'Donoghue More; his captains of war were the O'Rourkes, probably a branch of the O'Rourkes, Princes of Brefney; the MacEgans were his hereditary Brehons, and the O'Dalys and O'Duinins were his hereditary poets and antiquarians. In the twelfth century we find Cashel, fortified by Brian Boru two centuries before, in the possession of Cormac McCartyh, King of Munster and Archbishop of Cashel.

                                       This famous building, at once both a fortress and a church, was considered to be of the finest type of medieval architecture, the equal of any in England or Normandy of the same date.

                                       The celebrated Blarney Castle was built in 1449 by Cormac McCarthy Laidir (the Strong), Lord of Muskerry. During the later wars between the Irish and the English this castle was the scene of many battles. Its walls were eighteen feet thick, and resisted many an attack and seige under the name McCarthy. The fortification covered a space of eight acres; but with the fall of King James the Second, Earl Clancarty, who had espoused his cause, lost his estates, and Blarney Castle passed into the hands of an English commercial company. The castle stands to this day, and houses the famous "Blarney Stone," which the visitor may kiss while hanging by his heels, to insure good luck.

                                       The Abbey of Mucross, a splendid medieval ruin, of which N.P. Willis writes: "It is more beautiful in its loneliness and decay than it could have been in its pristine state of neatness and perfection," was also erected by the McCarthys, Princes of Desmond.

                                       Ross Castle, Killarney, is another memorial of the power and prowess of the McCarthys of Desmond. It was taken from them in 1588 by Sir Valentine Browne, founder of the house of Kenmare, but recaptured in 1651 by Donagh McCarthy, Viscount Muskerry, Earl of Clancarty. He had been the leader of the Catholic forces of Munster against the Cromwellians. With 1,500 poorly equipped men, he successfully resisted the English general, Ludlow, commanding 4,000 foot and 2,000 horse soldiers, at the seige of Ross Castle. He retired to Spain, and afterward was created Earl of Clancarty by Charles the Second. His estates were restored to him by act of Parliment. His son, Charles, entered the military service of France, and served with distinction in the Low Countries. He afterward entered the English service, and was killed in a naval engagement against the Dutch, June 3, 1665.

                                       Charles' younger brother, Justin McCarthy, Viscount Montcashel, entered the English army, where he rose to the rank of Lieutenant-General. After the outbreak of the Revolution against James II in 1688 [James was trying, with great resistance, to restore the power of the papacy in all of Great Britain.], Justin was appointed Munster Master-General and Lord Lieutenant of the County of Cork by Tyr-Connell, and upon the landing of James the Second received command to raise seven foot-regiments. In 1689 he was created Viscount Montcashel and Baron of Castleinchy. Also in that year, Justin passed over to France, probably in the company of James himself, who had been allowed to "escape" from the Tower of London and flee the country. Justin received the rank of Lieutenant-General and received command of the 6,000 Irish troops that had now entered the service of King Louis the Fourteenth. His command gained great distinction in Savoy, and afterward served under him in Catalonia and on the Rhein.

                                       In September of 1688, the heads of the Church party in England invited William of Orange to be their champion in the cause of religious and civil liberty against James. With the landing of William on English soil, James' army literally melted away. Scotland, engulfed in the Reformation, posed no resistance at all. Ireland was quite a different matter, with much of their population having remained loyal to the Pope all along, the Earls of Clancarty among them. James took advantage of their feeling and returned to Ireland complete with French troops. William decided to take to the battlefield himself, and, he too, traveled to Ireland where he landed at Carrickfergus. On July 12, 1690 was fought the infamous and bloody Battle of the Boyne, which decided the fate of James and his followers, the "Jacobites." This time James was not "allowed to escape," he had to flee to France. William of Orange wasted no time in punishing James' followers. Lands and property were seized. The Jacobites were forced to either conform to the state church or exile themselves. Many did leave. It is very possible that the family of Silas McCarty fled to Scotland or secreted themselves in Ulster and, out of self-preservation and because of the times, were swept into the growing wave of Presbyterianism espoused by John Calvin. Best evidence tells us that the McCarty family is descended from the Earls of Clancarty, family McCarthy, lords of Blarney Castle.             

                                       The author has created a genealogical trace that leads back at least to Charlemagne and, in a more fanciful version, back to Adam and Eve. You can look over this "ancestral tree" at The Royal Ancestry of the Descendants of Silas McCarty and Sarah Carrell.

THE SILAS McCARTY FAMILY IN AMERICA

                                       Early history of the McCarty family in America is very hazy and only begins factually on the 11th of March, 1724 with the appearance of the name of Silas McCarty on a map of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The second solid piece of evidence is the conveyance of land to Silas by John Thomas and Richard Penn on the 3rd of March 1738. The final contributing fact establishing their residence was the uniting of Silas' wife, Sarah (Carrell) with the New Britain Baptist Church on the 16th of July 1755. From that point on, fairly accurate family records have been passed along, with many corroborating materials.

                                       Earlier information, or rather, speculation, is, quite frankly, a muddle, and has been open to much conflicting speculation. The two main sources have been the Harry Fred Lancaster Genealogy of the Lancaster and McCarty Families and Clarence Vernon Roberts' book, Early Friends Families of Upper Bucks.  Also, Ezra Patterson Carrell's Genealogy of the Carrell and Dungan Families, long considered the primary source on the McCarty family, copies the Roberts text on early family history verbatim. The words "doubtless," "certainly" and probably" are used all too often and tend to further tangle things. The confusion concerns Silas's immediate family background and from where and whence he came.

                                       The first theory, espoused by Roberts, says that the family was established in Bucks County by Cornelius McCarty of Middletown (New Jersey) and Silas and Edward McCarty of Haycock, all born near the year 1700. He goes on to say that an effort had been made (but not by whom) to make these three brothers, together with Dennis McCarty of Middletown, Monmouth County, New Jersey, "and one or two others of record at the time," all sons of John McCarty of Piscataway, New Jersey and Ann Harmon of Woodbridge, New Jersey who were married the seventh of September, 1684. Roberts continues by saying that the McCartys of New Jersey and Pennsylvania were "doubtless" descendants of the Earls of Clan Carty who were driven out of Ireland and disposessed of their large estates under William of Orange in 1690. The latter is the article's most cogent point.

                                       The first difficulty with the Roberts version is, if John McCarty and Ann Harmon were married in 1684, they could hardly be "descendants" of those driven from Ireland by William of Orange in 1690! The second difficulty is with Roberts' alleged researcher and his attempt to group all those with the surname of McCarty into a single family.  

                                       The second theory, put forth in the Lancaster book, states simply that family tradition has it that Silas McCarty left Scotland at about age fourteen with his brother, Roland. They lived together in Ireland for a few years, then emigrated to America. Roland settled in New Jersey, Silas in Pennsylvania. This is certainly a less confusing explanation, but it is not clear how the brothers came to be born in Scotland, and then emigrate to Ireland. It would seem more likely to been the other way around.

                                       Both theories are inconclusive and problematic. The fact is: We don't know! So, let us play with each of the above scenarios by filling in some missing data, albeit hypothetical. This author will then offer yet another possible solution to the mystery.

                                       Regarding the Roberts theory, it is conceivable that the McCartys did end up in Freehold, Monmouth County, New Jersey. At least one other famous Sullivan County, Pennsylvania family, that of Theophilus Little, had its American origins in that place. One Lewis Morris wrote to the Bishop of London in 1700, concerning the state of religion in the Jerseys. In that letter he states that "Freehold was settled from Scotland...About one-half of the Inhabitants there are Scotch Presbyterians and a sober people." Silas would have been at the right place at the right time. The attempt at establishing the relationship between all the McCarty boys of northern New Jersey, as well as the parenthood of John McCarty and Ann Harmon, is purely conjectural, and should be dismissed until further facts make their appearance.

                                       A brief digression: For the purposes of this essay we will assume that Silas McCarty was born into a Presbyterian family, perhaps even a recently-Presbyterian family. What we do know is that Silas married into a very prominent Baptist family; his wife Sarah's grandfather was the founder of the first Baptist Church in Bucks County. In his will, Silas even deeded land to the congregation of the New Britain Baptist Church for a meeting house and graveyard. Silas and Sarah's son, Thomas, however, was identified in early life with the Tinicum Presbyterian Church. He later married into the Lancaster family, well-known Friends. You can see the Ancestry of Sarah (Dungan) McCarty and other Dungan relatives at many locations on the Internet. 

                                       That having been said, another possibility is that Silas McCarty (assuming for a moment that he was born in America, to John and Ann) came early under the influence of the Quakers while in Freehold. One of the founders of that town was George Keith, an important, albeit controversial, voice in the Quaker movement in America. Keith was a native of Aberdeen, Scotland and raised a Scotch Presbyterian. He became a Quaker to secure patronage by Robert Barclay, a follower of George Fox. Following persecution in his native country, Keith emigrated to Freehold where he was engaged as a surveyor to mark out the lines between East and West Jersey. In 1689, Keith was called upon by William Penn to participate in his "Holy Experiment" by opening a school in Philadelphia. This school later became the William Penn Charter School and the Friends Select School. His followers were known as Keithian Quakers or Quaker Baptists, and, though he later became the subject of much criticism, his influence is clear in the early Quaker movement in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. And, several years later, when the Quakers from New Jersey began to gravitate toward that area in Bucks County, known as "The Great Swamp," young Silas McCarty may have been with them.

                                       It is also possible, however, that quite a different picture can be formed, somewhat agreeing with the Lancaster theory:

                                       In 1720 there were more than a million Presbyterians in Ulster being persecuted by the much larger Catholic population. By mid-century more than half of that population had migrated to America. John Fiske, in The Dutch and Quaker Colonies in America, tells us that "the great majority (of Presbyterians) came to Pennsylvania and occupied the mountain country west of the Susquehanna." In Wayland F. Dunaway's The Scotch-Irish of Colonial Pennsylvania, we are told that "A characteristic Scotch-Irish settlement was effected in present Bucks County, beginning about 1720 and still receiving additions in 1740. Scotch-Irish settlements were made in Tinicum and Bedminster Townships and in Deep Run, Plumstead, and New Britain Townships..." These are all very familiar names in early McCarty family history. It is possible that Silas, and perhaps a brother, arrived directly in Pennsylvania on this wave of migration.

                                       Accept the following only as a possibility:

                                       The members of Clancarty were papists (Catholics). Given that the McCarty family is descended from that clan, there can be no doubt about that fact. Clancarty fought long and hard in defense of James the Second. With the coming of William of Orange, all of their land and monies were seized.

                                       Members of the clan were then faced with a choice: remain papists no matter what, convert to Protestantism, or flee the country. Many did remain papists; many chose to run to France with King James; still others decided to convert and begrudgingly follow the Church of England. Conversion, however, presented a new problem: the scorn of the remaining papists. The McCartys (Clancarty no longer existed, thanks to William of Orange) would have had to leave their traditional home country and escape to Ulster where a large "Williamite" settlement was in existence. Interestingly enough, Ulster held a huge Scottish population (over 50,000) at the time. The family would there have come under the influence of Presbyterianism. Silas McCarty was possibly born there in Ulster about 1700 to, by then, Presbyterian parents. By 1720 things were sufficiently unpleasant for the Protestants that Silas left the country, possibly with his brother, Roland. They went first to Scotland, where Presbyterians were most welcome. A couple of years later, when emigrations from Scotland were in full swing, they sailed to America. They probably landed first in Boston, then traveled down the coast and up the Delaware River to Philadelphia. Silas and Roland went their separate ways, Roland to New Jersey, Silas directly to Bucks County. And there we find 1724 and our first solid piece of evidence.

                                       It is interesting to note that, a few years later a very famous ardent Presbyterian and scientist, the discoverer of oxygen, Joseph Priestly, would come to live in Northumberland County. His son, also Joseph, who preceded him to America, would become the first large landowner and developer in what would become Sullivan County. 

                                       Hopefully, more facts will come into our hands to enable a solution to this riddle. Neither published theory is sufficient to make a case, and this author's theory is only a possible scenario. A fascinating puzzle!

SILAS McCARTY AND SARAH CARRELL

 

            Silas McCarty, born c.1700, died 1750; married c.1722, Sarah Carrell, daughter of James Carrell and Sarah Dungan of Warminster, and grand-daughter of Rev. Thomas Dungan, founder and pastor of the first Baptist Church in Bucks County (1684), born c.1700 in Northampton Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

On a map of Bucks County, dated 11 Mar 1724, Silas is represented as the owner of a plot of land in the southwestern part of Plumstead Township, near the Buckingham line.              

            Silas later took up a tract of 350 acres in what would became Haycock Township, just over the line of the present Richland Township, adjoining the Logan tract on the west, the Bryan tract on the south, and the Jacob Strawn tract on the east. The patent for this tract of land from John, Thomas and Richard Penn to Silas McCarty is dated 1 mo.3, 1737/8, but he was probably located there under a proprietary warrant of survey for some years prior to that date.

            He died seized of this land in the year 1750, leaving a will dated January 3, 1749/50, probated on May 1, 1750, which devised to his wife Sarah his plantation for life, then to all his children, his son Carrell excepted. To Carrell he gave 100 acres off the end of his plantation.

Silas also gave 1 acre of land to William Bryan, Isaac Evans, and others, in trust, for the use of the Baptist congregation at New Britain, in an area known of as Strawnstown, upon which they would erect a church and locate a burial ground. A small log church was built and has long since disappeared. Sarah (Carrell) McCarty united with the congregation "July ye 16th, 1755." Silas and Sarah are probably buried in the graveyard, though the stones are broken and illegible.
[Lancaster, Carrell/Dungan]

FIRST GENERATION

 

He traveled along a rather dark path for some little time without meeting anything, until at last he came to a beautiful child. So he said to the child, “What do you do here?” And the child said, “I am always at play. Come and play with me.” So, he played with that child, the whole day long, and they were very merry.

 

The first generation of McCarty’s in America were born and lived their early lives in Upper Bucks County, Pennsylvania in the area now known as Quakertown, specifically Richland and adjoining Haycock and Springfield Townships. The following slightly-paraphrased excerpt from Old Richland Families, by Ellwood Roberts, will serve as a backdrop for this first generation:

 

Located less than forty miles from Philadelphia, the vicinity known successively as Great Swamp, Richland and Quakertown, is one of the most interesting in Eastern Pennsylvania. It was settled over two centuries ago by English and Welsh Friends or Quakers, and by Germans who, like them, sought a refuge from the assaults of religious intolerance at home.

Among the first settlers were Edward Roberts (his great-grandson, Hugh Foulke, married into the McCarty line), Peter Lester (his great-granddaughter, Elizabeth Roberts [#911] married Hugh Foulke), and Thomas Lancaster (whose daughter, Elizabeth, married Thomas McCarty [#9]).

The settlement included a large tract of country, embracing several townships adjoining Richland, as it was termed when organized and laid out in 1734, extending even into the adjoining counties of Lehigh and Montgomery. While the settlement now (known as) Quakertown was the central point, members of the meeting were located in Springfield, Rockhill, Milford, Saucon and elsewhere.

The settlement was peopled by those who left home on account of their religious convictions, and there   was thus a common bond of sympathy. It was William Penn's foresight in providing a place of refuge for his people, and his liberality in throwing it open to all comers, regardless of creed or nationality, that gave to the population of the state he founded its cosmopolitan character and brought together such apparently incongruous and discordant elements to form a community which has retained its peculiarities for over two centuries. From the date of location of some of the original surveys, much of what is now comprised within the limits of Milford and Springfield must have originally been called Richland. This view is borne out by the fact that much of the land surveyed as part of Richland Manor was located in adjacent townships. Tradition tells us of the early settlers finding the place covered with a luxurious growth of grass. It was mostly heavily timbered but the forest was interspersed with small prairies, with a rich soil, hence the place was called Richland.

 

                        ...the proportion of prairie was, however, small. Nearly all was wet and swampy, and in the spring of the year covered with water, until cultivation had effected

a change.

                        ...the circumstances which gave rise to the name "Swamp," though, were rapidly modified under the benign ministry of the axe and the plow.

 

                        Wolves, bears, deer and panthers were abundant and continued so for years. Rattlesnakes were very troublesome to the early settlers for many years. Mowers were compelled to wrap their legs with hay or other protective substances to ward off their bites. At Great Swamp was organized a branch of the first Society for maintaining friendly relations with the aboriginal inhabitants. It was called "Ye Friendly Association for Regaining and Preserving Peace with ye Indians." All through the bloody and devastating wars with the infuriated red men, lasting for years, there was no clash between them and the followers of Penn at Richland. Samuel Foulke (father of Judah

Foulke, who married [#94] Sarah McCarty and grandfather of Hugh Foulke, who married [#911] Elizabeth Roberts) was Treasurer and guiding spirit of this organization. The Association continued until the Peace of 1759.

                        The first settlers had no facilities for building houses. They came in detached parties and probably at first depended almost entirely upon the Indians of the

vicinity, who, fortunately, were kindly disposed toward these peaceful followers of Penn. The first dwellings were of bark and were erected beside great rocks or under the shadow of trees.

 

It should here be noted that the Silas McCarty family was not the only McCarty family in the environs of Haycock Township at this time, There was at least one other, the family of Nicholas and Unity McCarty. Research has yielded no definite connection between the families. This has caused confusion over the years because then, just as today, some names were more popular than others. The causing the most problems for us has been the name “Thomas.” Some have attempted to identify our Thomas, ninth child of Silas and Sarah (1741-1804) as another Thomas, who was born in 1759 and died after 1833 having fought in the American Revolution.  That hardly would have pleased our Thomas’ in-laws, the Lancaster’s, devout members of the Society of Friends.

THE CHILDREN OF SILAS McCARTY AND SARAH CARRELL

 

1          CARRELL McCARTY, first child of Silas McCarty and Sarah Carrell, was born          in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 15 Sep 1723; married Tamar_________ of  "Adjacents of Springfield Township," by which name Haycock Township was known prior to 1763. He inherited 100 acres of his father's Haycock plantation and are known to have made a conveyance of part of that land 20 August 1759. [Carrell/Dungan]

 

2          JAMES McCARTY, second child of Silas McCarty and Sarah Carrell, was born          in Bucks County, Pennsylvania 1 Jan 1725/6; married Sarah__________. With his wife, he joined with the heirs of deed in 1760. [Carrell/Dungan]

 

3          SILAS McCARTY, third child of Silas McCarty and Sarah Carrell, was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania 16 June 1727. He appears on the tax list of Richland Township as a single man in 1783 (so probably never married) and evidently moved to Northampton County, Pennsylvania prior to 4 Jun 1785 when he conveyed land in that county. [Carrell/Dungan]

 

4         BENJAMIN McCARTY, fourth child of Silas McCarty and Sarah Carrell, was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania 5 Oct 1731, raised on his father's farm in Haycock Township, then known as "adjacent of Springfield," died in Richland Township, Bucks County 27 Oct 1794; married, about 1757, Margaret Walton, daughter of Isaac Walton, Sr. and Alice Davis of Richland Township, born 1736.

     The Waltons were members of the Richland Monthly Meeting of Friends. Benjamin McCarty not being a member, Margaret was disowned by the Society for marriage "out of unity."

     Isaac Walton was a descendant of one of the first pioneer Walton brothers who settled in Byberry Township, Philadelphia County, on the upper boarder of Bucks County, about 1683. [EFFUB pp.373-375] He was at the time of his daughter's marriage to Benjamin McCarty, and for many years thereafter, a tenant on one of the plantations of the Logan tract in Richland, his son Isaac Walton, Jr. being a tenant on another division of the same tract.

     It is possible that upon his marriage to Margaret Walton, Benjamin McCarty took charge of her father's farm. The two tracts "in the tenure of Isaac Walton,Sr., and Isaac Walton,Jr.," were devised by the will of William Logan to his daughter Sarah, wife of Thomas Fisher. On 13 Feb 1787 Thomas and Sarah Fisher conveyed 195 acres, part of both tracts, to Benjamin McCarty. Benjamin and his family lived there until his death in 1794. His will (see below), executed on his deathbed, left his entire estate to his wife for life or widowhood, and then to his children. His executors, his wife and his brother-in-law Daniel Walton, were directed to hold the share of his daughter Mary, wife of Peter Ashton, paying her the interest and paying the principal to her children at her death. The share of another daughter, Sarah Mitchell, a widow, was divided between her and her daughter Mira. Most of the children of Benjamin and Margaret (Walton) McCarty moved to Muncy, Northampton (now Lycoming) County, Pennsylvania. [Carrell/Dungan, EFFUB, Will

9          THOMAS McCARTY, ninth child of Silas McCarty and Sarah Carrell, was born         12 Apr 1741, died in Muncy, Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, 9 Oct 1804, Lucetta McCarty Wilson records indicate that he was buried in the graveyard at Pennsdale Monthly Meeting; married 1765 Elizabeth Lancaster, twelfth child of Thomas Lancaster and Phebe Wardell, born, probably in Richland, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 26 Aug 1749, died in Quakertown, Bucks County, 26 July 1806, having returned there after Thomas's death.  

     Thomas McCarty was raised on his father's plantation in Haycock Township. He was probably reared and educated in the tenets and faith of the Presbyterian Church, and identified with the old Tinicum congregation established among the rugged hills of Tinucum Township prior to 1740.

     [The following is a somewhat paraphrased version of Ezra Patterson Carrell's descriptive material found in the Carrell/Dungan genealogy, pps.73-74]:

 

     A few miles north of Ottsville, Pennsylvania, is an old burial-ground on what is known as Clay Ridge. That those connected with this burial-ground held it in veneration is shown by the order in which it was maintained. It is surrounded by a well-built wall,       with beautiful iron gates, and gives every indication   of being the burial-ground of people well able to care for it. When Carrell visited it in the 1920s, it was           still in fairly good repair as to the wall and entrance, but the forest was reclaiming its own, and          forest trees were growing un-forbidden over the graves of those reposing beneath. There were, at that time, several gravestones showing the name Lancaster. [When this author visited the graveyard in 1991, although the wall was still fairly in tact, there was little left within except fragments of gravestones.]

     The story is, that here was originally located the old Ottsville Presbyterian Church, and the foundation outlines of its location were clearly marked; but as the community developed, and the Durham Road became principal highway for communication with Philadelphia, which was the main market for the produce of the farms - the only source of livelihood to those settlers - development became more general along this main road, and the old meeting-house bid fair to be isolated from the life of the community; there arose a division in the church, and finally it was moved to Ottsville, Pennsylvania, along the Durham Road, where it stands today.

 

 

                        

    Even after the removal of the church itself, it was unable to stop the trend of changing conditions, and gradually the Irish gave place to the German element until the Presbyterians were unable to support a pastor, and services were held alternately in German, for the German settlers one Sunday, and in English, for the Presbyterians, the next, but even this failed to stem the tide of change, until at last services of all kinds have been abandoned, and this old church, standing in good repair, the graveyard surrounding it fairly well-kept and enclosed by an excellent wall, is yet an empty testimonial to the fact that churches, like those who people them, have their day.

 

     Carrell was able to secure the old session and trustee-books of the church, and deposited them at the Presbyterian Historical Society in the Witherspoon    Building, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

     Despite his Presbyterian roots, Thomas McCarty, a mason by trade, was associated with the building of the Friends' Meeting House at Quakertown in 1762.

     Elizabeth Lancaster had been strictly reared in the faith of the Society of Friends. Both of her parents were accepted ministers and traveled extensively in "the service of truth." (see note below on Lancaster family) Thomas McCarty applied for membership in the Society prior to his marriage to Elizabeth but, though the committee appointed to investigate his character reported favorably, his admission was opposed by some members of the meeting and he was denied membership. The marriage took place though Elizabeth was disowned for marrying outside her faith. They continued to attend the meeting however and, after nineteen years, were both admitted to membership in the Richland Meeting.

     Thomas and Elizabeth McCarty settled on a 40-acre farm in Richland inherited by Elizabeth from her father. They lived there until 1775, then sold the farm to William Foulke, together with fifteen acres of land bought from Moses Lancaster, 5 Dec 1767, and moved to Northampton County, residing there until 1794 when the whole family moved to Muncy, Northumberland (soon to be Lycoming) County, Pennsylvania. They took certificates from Richland Monthly Meeting of Friends to the Monthly Meeting at Exeter, Berks County, then the Monthly Meeting nearest to their destination. They were soon followed by several of the children of Thomas's brother, Benjamin.

     Thomas is said to have owned the first gristmill in Lycoming County. Their farm was located between Muncy and Clarkstown on land, which was owned by the Shipman family in 1902. In the following item, taken from the Lycoming Gazette dated 3/33(?)/1809-2 we find what appears to be the sale of the property:

 

TO BE SOLD AT PRIVATE SALE

     A Grist-mill, Sawmill and thirty-nine acres of excellent land with a two-story frame dwelling house, three rooms on a floor, a log kitchen with a well of           good water before the door; the mills are on an excellent stream of water [Glade Run], two pairs of stones, one pair of burrs, three bolting cloaths, suitable for either merchant or country business. The Grist-mill is stone, forty ft. by thirty, situated in Muncy Creek Township, Lycoming County, well known by the name of McCarty Mill.

     The land is about 2/3 cleared. About 5 acres of excellent meadow and much more may be made, a young orchard of about 100 trees; the mills and lot in good repair, any person inclining to purchase said mills, will apply to the subscriber - conditions will be made known by

     Following the death of Thomas McCarty in 1804, some of the youngest children returned to Richland with their mother where she died in 1806.

A NOTE ON THE LANCASTER FAMILY:

 

Thomas Lancaster, father of Elizabeth and ancestor of the family in Pennsylvania of that name, was born in Warwickshire, England in 1702.

Thomas and his sister Mary, who was probably a few years his senior, were brought to Pennsylvania by Ann (Chapman) Parson, an eminent traveling Friend and a daughter of John Chapman of Wrightstown, on her return from a religious visit to England in 1711. They were reared to maturity in Wrightstown. Mary Lancaster, Thomas’ sister, married in 1723, Jeffrey Burgess of Wrightstown. They settled on a farm in Lower Solebury. Jeffrey died there in 1755, leaving four sons and four daughters. Mary survived him.

Thomas Lancaster married at Wrightstown Meeting, 8 mo. 19, 1725, Phebe Wardell. She is said to have been the daughter of John Wardell, a native of Wales, who first came to Boston and later to Wrightstown. The name of Wardell, does not appear on the marriage certificate. Phebe is said to have been a beautiful woman, bright and intelligent.

In 1729, Thomas Lancaster purchased a farm of 108 acres on the eastern line of Wrightstown Township in what later became Upper Makefield Township. In 1736 he purchased 100 acres adjoining this tract. He lived on a farm of 208 acres until 1741 when he removed with his family to Richland.

Thomas and Phebe were earnest and active members of the Society of Friends, and both entered the ministry at an early age. They took their certificate from Wrightstown to Gwynedd Monthly Meeting on their removal to Richland, and became members of the Richland Monthly Meeting on its organization in 1742.

Thomas Lancaster purchased of Jonas Preston by deed dated 6 March 1741, 450 acres of land in Richland. It included the eastern portion of the present borough of Quakertown, and the house in which he resided was located on the eastern side of the Doylestown Road where it approaches Licking Run and bends to the southward. He resided on this plantation until his death in 1750, the land later being partitioned into eleven different tracts by the Orphan’s Court, and adjudged          to his children.

Thomas Lancaster entered the ministry about the time of his removal to Richland, and on 2 mo. 19, 1750, he acquainted the Meeting with his “concern to visit Friends in ye West Indies, particularly those of the Islands of Barbados and Tortola,” and requesting a few lines by way of a certificate from the Meeting, proceeded on his journey. Subsequent certificates returned by his widow to the Meeting from the Meeting at Barbados and Tortola show that he was accompanied on the journey to Barbados by John Bringhurst, a traveling Friend from Philadelphia, and Peter Fearon of Burlington, New Jersey. John Bringhurst died 7 mo. 30, 1750, on Barbados Island and Peter Fearon and Thomas Lancaster took passage to Tortola Island and after a short visit there took passage homeward. Thomas Lancaster’s health had become impaired by the climate of the islands and died during the voyage home. He was buried at sea. The certificate granted them by the Meeting on Tortola Island for their return is dated 8 mo. 19, 1750.

A COLLECTION OF MEMORIALS OF DECEASED MINISTERS AND OTHERS, printed by Joseph Cruikshank, Philadelphia, 1787, contains the following testimony from the Richland Monthly Meeting:

About ten years of the latter part of his time, (Thomas) was a member of this meeting; he was sound in the ministry, and exercised his gift therein with great fervency and zeal, his life and conversation corresponding therewith. In the second month, 1750, he laid before our meeting his concern to visit Friends on the islands of Barbadoes and Tortola, which the meeting approved of, and gave him the certificate in order thereto: Toards (sic) the latter end of the same year he performed said visit, and had good service there, as appeared by certificates from Friends on each side of the said Islands. On his return homewards, it pleased Divine Providence to visit him with sickness, of which he died at sea; his removal being deeply felt and lamented by his family and friends at home.

                a little while without meeting anything,

                until at last he came to a handsome boy.

                here?” An the boy said “I am always

                But they were not always learning;

                they also had the merriest games ever played.

 

                As to friends, he had such dear friends…

THE MIGRATION NORTH

An Introduction

 

            The second and third generations of the McCarty family in Lycoming and Sullivan Counties, Pennsylvania, have been well documented through property records, diaries and journals, and the records kept by the various Meetings of the Society of Friends.

We have little information at this time about most of the children of Silas McCarty and Sarah Carrell. Of the eleven, this document will concern itself chiefly with descendants of (#4) Benjamin and (#9) Thomas. Best evidence suggests that Thomas was the only member of that first generation to leave Bucks County and settle in the Muncy, Lycoming County area. Though his wife and some of the children returned to Quakertown following his death, he is recorded as being buried in the graveyard of the Pennsdale Meeting House. Very soon thereafter, however, many members of these two branches had settled in the Muncy area.

Travel from Bucks County to Muncy was no easy matter. The reader is directed to the article on (#91) Phebe McCarty Roberts (below), and her letter describing the journey to Muncy over the "blue mountain" (which now, of course, is tunneled through by the Pennsylvania Turnpike). This mountain separates the rolling county-side of southeastern Pennsylvania with the rugged mountainous region to the north. Also noteworthy is the diary of the trip to Upper Canada by Phebe in the winter of 1820/21 in her pursuits as a Quaker missionary. That diary will be found below.

The following selections from Now and Then will serve to illustrate the difficulties and miracles of life in those early days. Now and Then was a periodical "Devoted to Local History, Amusement, Instruction and Advancement of the Borough and the Valley of Muncy, Pennsylvania."  It was published "now and then" from 1868-1878 by J.M.M.Gernard, then revived in 1929 by Dr.T.Kenneth Wood, and has been published under the auspices of the Muncy Historical and Museum of History to this day.

       p1. The town of Muncy was commenced in 1797, when  (#42) Benjamin McCarty...bought a considerable portion of its present site and laid out its lots and streets, though there had already been a settlement where it stands for upwards of twenty years. "Muncy Manor" - comprising about 1615 acres, and first surveyed in 1768 - was in 1776 divided into five farms, and in a few years after was sub-divided into a number of smaller lots.

 

From Volume I., No.17, September 1877:

 

                        OUR PIONEERS FROM BUCKS COUNTY

 

       About the year 1787 a small party of young men came westward from Bucks County, this state, to settle in the Muncy Manor. James, Ezekiel and Isaac Walton, (#41) Silas, (#42) Benjamin, (#43) William and (#44) Isaac McCarty. All strong, healthy young men, determined to hew out for themselves and families a home in the then vast wilderness of middle Pennsylvania.

       A few years previous to their coming, the Muncy Manor had been surveyed and divided into farms, and had been sold to actual settlers. Among the settlers were

Capt. John Brady, John Scudder, Mordecai McKinney and others. These settlers had been compelled to abandon their improvements on account of Indian depredations and to flee for their lives. There was one exception to this general abandonment of the manor by the settlers. Mrs. John Brady left her husband behind, in his grave so hastily made, a sacrifice to his generosity and noble deeds.

       Some of the original settlers returned, others did not. Many titles lapsed and were resold by the Penns. It was under such auspices that the father of the McCarty brothers made up his mind to accompany his sons to the Muncy valley, and as he was the oldest

member of the party claimed the first choice of  property for sale there. The Scudder farm on account of its situation on the bank of the river was considered the most desirable. That naturally proved his choice, but before starting the old gentleman changed his mind about emigrating and concluded to remain in Bucks County. The young men came on without him. On arriving James Walton being the oldest member of the party claimed the Scudder farm as his. This the McCarty brothers had to accede to as the precedent had been established by their father before their coming, and the Walton brothers had reluctantly agreed that such should be the rule. James Walton located on the Scudder farm, William and Benjamin McCarty settled on the John Brady farm, which adjoined it on the east, Isaac Walton located on the McKinney farm adjoining the Brady farm on the east. These three farms lay side by side and comprised all the best bottomland in the manor. They each contained about 300 acres. The other members of our pioneer party went outside the manor and settled in different localities. William McCarty married Miss Mary Lloyd of Bucks County before coming to the Muncy Valley; they had fourteen children, eight boys and six girls. Thirteen lived to grow up. Uncle John McCarty was the third son, and Lloyd McCarty the youngest child. Both yet live in Muncy (September 1877), hale and hearty old gentlemen, one of the few links that yet bind our thoughts to ye olden time.

 

 

Benjamin McCarty, the brother of William and the founder of Pennsborough (afterwards changed to Muncy) married Miss Mary Smallwood of Harrisburg and had ten children, six boys and four girls. William and Benjamin McCarty divided the Brady farm between them. William took that portion between what is now West Water Street and Muncy Creek, Benjamin that portion between West Water Street and the southern boundary. Main Street now represents what was then the boundary between the Brady farm and Isaac Walton's. William built a temporary home on his tract between the site of Fort Brady and the banks of Muncy Creek, where he lived until he built a house where Uncle John McCarty now resides. At the latter place he passes the remainder of his days in domestic quietness. His remains lay in Walton's graveyard, marked by a marble slab.

       Benjamin built a public house on his tract, on what is now known as the "burnt district" in Muncy, where he kept tavern until the year 1810 when he moved up to Glade run and settled on what is now the Isaac Turner farm, where he died. He was buried in Walton's graveyard, but his grave was not marked permanently, hence its identity is lost. In the year 1797, ten years after coming to the Muncy valley, Benjamin McCarty conceived the idea of starting a town. He accordingly commenced laying out lots on his portion of the Brady farm fronting on what is now Main Street, and sold them out to different parties. His example was by his brother William north of Water Street, and by

Isaac Walton who owned the land on the opposite side of Main Street. The town was called Pennsborough in honor of the Penns, but for many years it bore the name Hardscrabble," we have no doubt to the sorrow of its founders. The street of Hardscrabble we fancy where now the youth and beauty love to promenade then were given up by the few inhabitants to the jamboree of wolves and panthers, bears and wildcats, and the boys and girls of that time did not importune their parents to be out after dark as they do now.

       Such was the commencement of the town of Muncy, and such the part played in its founding by the Bucks county pioneers. Their descendants yet live in and around Muncy, enjoying many of the fruits brought by civilization and our old settlements, but alas! The

pioneers themselves sleep beneath the clods of the valley."  Geo.G.Wood

                                                                 (Excerpt)

 

       p.3  When (#435) "Uncle John" McCarty was a boy- seventy years ago- wild animals in this region were still wondrously numerous. Game often approached the cabin doors. Uncle John one recent afternoon, at the spot where he was born, and where he has lived now for eighty-two years, related to us many of his boy-day recollections. Pointing to a spot a few feet from where we sat, he remarked, "I remember seeing my father stand there and shoot a deer that stood out there in the road. The deer ran up to where Dan.Clapp now lives and there fell dead." The wolves were almost nightly serenaders. "It beat all," said Uncle John, "what a noise an old she wolf with a parcel of cubs could make." Sometimes a bear would venture to crawl into a sty and kill a hog. But such visitors seldom got away from the little embryo village. The Waltons' and McCartys'- of whom there were then five

or six families - "had dogs enough," said Uncle John, "to eat a bear right up." Jacob Hill... was a great admirer of these hounds and mastiffs. "I believe," he said on one occasion, "if der Defil was to kum down there among der Waltons unt McCartys als he nefer gits

away."

       p.188: "...it was not until 1799 that a Building Committee, consisting of Joseph Carpenter, BenjaminWarner, John Carpenter, and William Ellis, was appointed to build a substantial stone house for the meeting (at Pennsdale). Benjamin McCarty, a Friend who was a mason, was designated to construct it out of locally quarried Oriskany sandstone, full of interesting fossils. Work began March 4, 1799. The interior was divided into two sections by wooden shutters, and when the monthly business meeting was held, men and women met separately. On benches which faced the meeting and were elevated a step or two sat ministers and elders.

THE McCARTY HOMESTEAD IN MUNCY

 

If the early settlers found the migration to the Muncy area difficult, the trip just a little further north to what would later become Sullivan County must have seemed nearly impossible to all but the heartiest souls.

Sullivan County is situated on the high ground and extensive ridges between the North and West branches of the Susquehanna River and remained a wilderness long after small communities had dotted the river valleys. The first "road," called then a packhorse road, was cut across the mountain from Muncy to Hillsgrove, probably by surveyors and pioneers for the purpose of bringing in provisions. It was called the "Wallis Road," after Samuel Wallis. By 1793 another path had been cut through, leaving the Wallis Road at the foot of the Allegheny, north to the left of Hunter's Run, and on through to the forks of the Loyalsock where Forksville is now located. This was the "Courson Road."

Finally, at the beginning of the nineteenth century the "Genesee Road" was opened. This was the first road allowing emigrants passage from southern Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia to the rich valley of the Genesee River. It ran from Muncy, climbed the Allegheny by Highland Lake, skirted the mountain's summit for a time, descended to the valley of Ogdonia Creek, and down to the Loyalsock. The road then followed the Loyalsock to the mouth of Elk Creek, crossing and re-crossing until Lincoln Falls, on to the valley of King's Creek, which it followed for some time. A steep ascend followed to the summit of Burnett's Ridge, then descended by heavy grades to the Valley of Millstone Run, down to the Schrader branch, connected with another road running along Towanda Creek to a point known at the time as Dougherty's tavern near Greenwood (now Powell, in Bradford County).

With the Genesee Road came the speculators, Joseph Priestly, John Vaughan, and others, buying their land chiefly from Samuel Wallis. Priestly (whose father was the noted discoverer of oxygen and by then retired in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania) sent three English families from Northumberland to improve the conditions of the existing settlement at Millview along the Little Loyalsock, known then as Strong's Branch. Mr. Strong had been earlier sent by Priestly for the same task and succeeded only in the construction of his own cabin. Strong built no new paths and traveled only by water. The three families of English settlers were given fifty acres of land each in exchange for improvements to be made on Priestly's property. The three families were those of Powell Bird, John Warren, and William Molyneux. Two of those three families, Bird and Molyneux, are deeply intertwined with the McCarty family.

Other early settlers whose names would be ever connected with the McCarty family are: Theophilus Little, who came with his family from Monmouth County, New Jersey and is credited with naming Shrewsbury Township, the oldest in Sullivan County; Samuel Rogers, whose purchase from Priestly became the present site of Forksville; and Joseph Pardoe who came to Elkland Township in 1813.

It was to Elkland Township that (#96) Joel McCarty and his wife Ellen Roberts came in 1803, thus founding that branch of the McCarty family in Sullivan County. What they found is well described by George Molyneux Pardoe in his often re-printed, William Molyneux and his Descendants of 1894.

 

I understand that in coming here these settlers came over the mountain from Muncy, past Abraham Webster's, and struck the Loyalsock at or below Hillsgrove. It is told that they forded the Loyalsock thirteen times from Hillsgrove up. That everything had to be packed on horseback or on their own backs, and as horses were scarce they frequently had to go on foot to Muncy, their nearest trading place (only thirty miles) and bring back what few stores they were compelled to use. The mortar and pestle was the only mill they had for years.

Game was plenty. Trout, deer, wild turkeys and bear meat could almost be had for the asking. I have heard my grandmother Molyneux, formerly Rebecca Bird  [believed to be the first white child born in Sullivan County], say that they could go out before breakfast and catch all the trout they could eat, and that some of them were eighteen inches in length.

There were dangerous wild beasts then, but I believe that there was but one casualty on their account, and that fortunately did not result in loss of life, except to the beast. In the year 1811 Job Summers, a lad about eleven years of age, living with Powell Bird, his grandfather, was sent across the creek and up on the side of the hill to bring the cows. When coming back with the cows he heard the cry of a panther, but as the sound was much like a human voice he concluded that it was his uncle George Bird, who was        then a young man of twenty one, and called back, "O, you can't scare me, uncle George," and went on with the cows. When they came to the creek, just opposite the Bird residence, the cows started to ford the creek, and little Job walked on down to where the canoe or dug out was tied in which he had "poled" himself over. As soon as he had left the cows the panther sprang upon him. Job called murder as loud as he could and fell on his face. The panther turned him over with his paw and endeavored to get at his throat, but he had on a hand made tow-shirt, with buttons sewed on with linen thread, which would not give way. The cry of murder was    heard at the house, and this same uncle George and the hounds hastened to the rescue. The hounds drove off the panther and treed him. By this time it was getting dark, and straw was brought and lighted so the panther could be seen, when a shot from Uncle George's rifle put an end to him. Job's wounds consisted of the loss      of one of his small fingers, and a terribly lacerated face, the scars from which were plainly discernable to the day of his death, which occurred March 1, 1887. The panther was opened, and it was found that he was starving, as his entrails contained nothing but the boy's finger and some of his blood.

One Abraham Webster was held by Indians while a boy and claims to have killed thirty bear in one season and that his son, Joseph once killed sixty deer in one season.

(#96) Joel McCarty himself was know to have remarked that he once counted thirty elk that came to drink at the same time from Thomas' Lake. The story is also told of Joel finding a wolf in one of his traps and, thinking it to be a dog, released it, gave it a good kick and bade it be-gone home.

41        SILAS McCARTY, first child of Benjamin McCarty and Margaret Walton, was born in Richland Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, about 1758. When about thirty years of age he migrated with his brothers Benjamin, William and Isaac, and his cousins, James, Ezekiel and Isaac Walton, his sister and her husband David Lloyd to Muncy, Northumberland (soon to be Lycoming) County, Pennsylvania. The migration could have been as early as 1787 as set by some descendants but was probably two to four years later.               

     The Waltons took a certificate from Richland Monthly Meeting to Exeter Monthly Meeting, Berks County (probably the nearest Friends' Meeting to Muncy at that date), in 1791, and settled with the McCartys at Muncy.

     There is no record that Silas McCarty ever married or had a family. [Carrell/Dungan]

 

42        BENJAMIN McCARTY, JR., second child of Benjamin McCarty and Margaret Walton, was born in Richland, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 2 May 1763; he married Mary Smallwood of Harrisburg, either just prior to, or soon after his migration to Muncy. Mary was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 10 May 1766, died in LaPorte County, Indiana, 1865.

Benjamin and his brother William purchased 300 acres of land in the "Manor of Muncy'" known as the John Brady tract, and divided it between them. Benjamin took the portion between West Water Street and the southern boundary of the tract. He built a public house on his tract where he maintained a public hostelry until 1810 when he moved to Glade Run, where he died. In 1797 he began laying out lots on his tract fronting what is now Main Street, and his town came to be known as Pennsborough, bore the local name of Hardscrabble and was the beginning of what is now known as Muncy.

43        WILLIAM McCARTY, third child of Benjamin McCarty and Margaret Walton,           born in Richland, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 11 Mar 1766, died in Muncy,

Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, 21 Jan 1813, and is buried in the Walton Cemetery in Muncy; he married, 1787, Mary Lloyd, daughter of David Lloyd of Springfield Township, Bucks County, born 26 Sep 1764, died in Muncy 12 Aug 1838 and is buried with her husband in the Walton Cemetery in Muncy.

Though the Walton Cemetery was in extreme disrepair in the fall of 1990 when visited by this author, the stones of William and his wife Mary were found laying flat underneath a large tree.

William moved to the Muncy area in 1789 or 90, together with brothers, Silas, Benjamin and Isaac, and his cousins James, Ezekiel and Isaac Walton. It is known that they moved to Muncy after the birth of eldest son, Benjamin in 1788. Immediately upon their arrival, William built a temporary log between Muncy Creek and Glade Run, a house which was torn down in 1804. Margaret was born in that temporary structure in 1790.

In the division of the tract purchased with his brother, Benjamin, William acquired 150 acres lying between what is now West Water Street and Muncy Creek. There he built his home between, one of the first true residences in Muncy. There he lived until his death in 1813. He and his family were faithful members of the Society of Friends and were active worshippers at the Pennsdale Meeting, three miles away. 

William's generosity was, ironically, the cause of his demise. Chiefly through his efforts, the Soldiers of the War of 1813 were allowed to encamp on his land along the Muncy Creek. Through contact with those soldiers, he contracted the "black fever," and died.

The McCarty homestead stands today on Main Street in Muncy, a block from the business section. Although its outward appearance has been "Tudorized," the simple colonial lines remain. Upon his mother's death, the house was inherited by "Uncle John" McCarty, who lived there for the rest of his life. Under his care, the house was probably a "stop" when John was a "conductor" on the Underground Railroad.

In 1884, William James [#43(14)1] and Mary Putnam McCarty moved into the house, it having been willed to him by Uncle John. The house then passed to their children Cornelia, Lydia, and William James, who lived there with his wife Myrtle and daughter, Wilina. The house was later purchased from the family by Thomas and Gloria Clegg who opened its doors as the McCarty House Inn, a fine restaurant, in late 1989.

For a lovely narrative on the history of the McCarty house, written from the viewpoint of the house itself, itself, the reader is directed to The Autobiography of An Old House, by Mrs. Emilie McCarty Sanders [#43(14)11] reprinted in Now and Then, April 1990, Vol.XXIII, Number 1.

CATAWISSA MEETING HOUSE

PHEBE (McCARTY) ROBERTS

 

91        PHEBE McCARTY, first child of Thomas McCarty and Elizabeth Lancaster, born in Richland, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 2 Aug 1766, died 30 Mar 1850; married, 4 Jun 1795, Levi Roberts of Milford Township, child of Abraham Roberts and Catharine Lester, born in Milford, 21 Oct 1759, died Milford, 4 Jan 1846.

     Levi Roberts was a grandchild of Thomas and Alice Roberts, early Welsh settlers in "The Great Swamp," which included Richland and most of Milford Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He was a great-grandchild of Peter Lester, another pioneer of the Quaker settlement in the "Great Swamp," who came from Leistershire, England about 1682.

     Levi Roberts inherited his father's homestead of about 100 acres, upon which he lived and died. He and his wife were members of the Richland Monthly Meeting of Friends.

 

A Note on this Roberts Family:

 

There were two families of Roberts in those early days in Richland. To distinguish the descendants of Thomas Roberts from those of Edward Roberts, so far as known not related, one family was known as the “Pot Robertses” and the other as the “Kettle Robertses,” but which was “Pot” and which was “Kettle” cannot now be determined.

 

Thomas and Alice Roberts, the founders of this Roberts family of Milford Township in the Manor of Richland, are supposed to have come from Wales. All we know in reference to their arrival in this country is a well-founded account given by Letitia and Ann Foulke, granddaughters of Thomas and Alice Roberts, to Joshua Foulke, who repeated it to Clarence Vernon Roberts for his book (see Sources below):

 

            Thomas Roberts and Alice his wife arrived in Philadelphia about the year 1715-20. They purchased a horse and cart and a few of the absolute necessities of life and proceeded to their new home beyond the lines of lands then taken up by other settlers. They traveled about thirty-five miles north of Philadelphia into what is now Milford Township, Bucks County, locating in a beautiful valley covered with luxuriant grass, which they thought particularly adapted for grazing. This little valley was watered by a small stream, which they named Butler Creek. Here they camped for a time beside a large rock, and proceeded to build themselves a log house, in which they resided until about 1740 or 1742. About the latter date they erected a stone house, which was still standing in 1882 but has since disappeared entirely.

 

            Thomas Roberts died in Milford Township 6 mo.5, 1767, at a very advanced age. His wife, Alice, died prior to April 5, 1750. It is possible that their nine children were born in Wales.

            Abraham Roberts, eighth child of Thomas and Alice was born 1 mo. 14, 1730. He was raised in Milford and spent his entire life there. He died 2 mo., 1815. He was a farmer and owned considerable land. He married, first 4 mo., 1757, Catharine Lester, born 9 mo. 23, 1733, died 1778, daughter of John and Dorothy (Greasley) Lester.

            Their son was Levi (above) who married Phebe McCarty

            As were her parents, Phebe McCarty Roberts was a devout Quaker and a missionary. The following brief account written by her, describes a journey from Quakertown to Muncy, Pennsylvania, and serves to illustrate the difficulties of travel in those days as well as the receipt of the news of the death of Phebe's father, Thomas McCarty. It should be noted that the trip from Quakertown to Muncy is now an easy morning's drive.

 

on the 2 day of the 11 month 1804 my husband and my self and our little daughter

Elizabeth about a year and nine months old accompanied by my sister Elizabeth McCarty we set out from home on our journey to see our parents and brothers an Sisters living at Muncy this day 6 of the week we traveled as far as Cross tavern next day 9 of the month we persued our journey took brecfast at Cartys town then crosed over the blue mountain  we met a man at the foot of the mountain who apprised us of the death of our father which was heavy and mallanedy  (sic) news indeed but thought best to go forward and see how those fared that survived  got as far as Clingermans that night next day 4 of the month and 1 of the week we reached the foot of mahonoy mountains  6 of the month got to Catawisa next 6 crosed the river and got to fishing Crek 7 of the month and 4 of the week    

 

            In the fall and winter of 1821/2, Phebe accompanied Jemima Burson, a minister in the Society of Friends, and others, on an extensive trip to northern New York State and Upper Canada (Ontario), a journey lasting five months, during which they traveled by carriage 2200 miles and held numerous meetings of worship both public and private. The following diary is not only a testament of faith, but a tribute to the bravery and dedication to their cause Phebe and Jemima and the courageousness and stoicism of the many pioneer families which they visited. The hardship experienced by these missionaries during those long, cold months seems almost fictional, and far removed from what we consider to be troubles in our daily lives. Please note, however, the way in which Phebe accepts their trials in the same, simple, matter-of-fact way that she accepts the good things that occur. Very fascinating also, are her descriptions of natural surroundings, particularly their stop at Niagara Falls, then in a wilderness. One wonders if Phebe would recognize the spot now. Permeating all, however, is an intense love of God and a singleness of purpose, which was, and is, inspiring.

            This edition of the diary is not the first. Clarence Vernon Roberts, author of Early Friends Families of Upper Bucks [EFFUB], was the first to tackle the task, presumably in the 1920’s. When Mr. Roberts copied the diary, he saw fit to correct all of Phebe’s spelling and grammatical errors as well as facts he deemed incorrect. There are also instances where entire sentences and phrases have been removed altogether. Several years later, Leslie R. Gray did an annotated version of Clarence Roberts’ work for the Journal of the Ontario Historical Society. Gray’s work is excellent, and very valuable for Canadian historians, having limited most of his annotation to north of the border.

            This edition is taken directly from the original manuscript, now in the possession of the Spruance Library, Bucks County Historical Society, Doylestown, Pennsylvania; they were kind enough to provide a copy from which to work. All of Phebe’s words are here as she spelled them. The pagination she used is noted. Any editing that has taken place is in parenthesis "( )", including punctuation - Phebe used none, except one exclamation point. Place names are usually only corrected once. Family and historical notes are in brackets [ ]. Without doing what Mr. Roberts did, much of the prose is tortuous but remains uncorrected. But…if one reads, and listens closely, Phebe’s voice may be heard loud and clear.

            The following is a letter written from Judah Foulke to his brother-in-law, Samuel McCarty, giving us a picture of pioneer life in Ohio:

 

"Millwood, 3rd month 5th 1845

 

Dear Brotherinlaw

 

            having lately received a letter from my daughter Eleanor who lives in philadelphia which informed me, that thee lives at Mochchunk, I am willing to write a few lines to let thee know that I am still living, but much afflicted with the infirmities of old age; in addition to the rumatic pains which I have had for many years, in my arms, and other joints, the dropsy has now made its appearance, in my feet and legs;  they are swelled much and feel disagreeable; but I may not murmur, as health and strength has been so long bestowed upon me, being now in my 83rd year. but I  have cut all my stove wood this faul and winter and worked a little in the shop, I made three buckets last week, but shall be forced to quit having so many ailments about me. thy sister sarah is deceased, she died the thirty first of the tenth month last, with a cancer in her head, she said she was willing to die, and so passed away without sigh groan or struggle, and I hope is at rest where troubles are no more. Phebe Roberts is so reduced in her faculties that she knows nobody, nor anything, but talks continually, this Eleanor wrote in her letter to me, I have not heard from betsy Thomas lately. I suppose thee would like to know some things

about my famaly, as thee has not seen any of them lately; they are all married and have all families except Eleanor, she has none living. for of my children are deceased that is, samiel Elizabeth jane and Silas. it may be thee would like to know how their famalies run, as to numbers; I will set down the number of each one that are living; Samuel has

John has agreed to furnish me with the necessaries of life as long as I live, and then he is to have the place and movable property, which will amount to about five hundred dollars. I want thee to write, and let me know how it fares with thee, and also to let me know how many of

thy brothers and sisters are living and where they are; please give my respects to Martha, and let me know what her second and third husbands names are; some of my children married pretty rich, Ann and her husband are worth about ten thousand Dollars Amelia

SOME NOTES ON THE EDWARD FOULKE FAMILY:

 

Unless otherwise noted, the principal source for the following is: The Ancestry of Clarence V. Roberts and Frances (Walton) Roberts, comprising a chart and sketches of some fifty-six ancestral families who settled mostly in or near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Clarence Vernon Roberts, 1940.

 

EDWARD FOULKE, ancestor of the Foulke families of Gwynedd Township and later Bucks County, Pennsylvania, was born in Wales, 13 May 1651, died in Gwynedd Township, Philadelphia (now Montgomery) County, Pennsylvania. He married, in Wales, Eleanor Hugh, child of Hugh, grandchild of Cadwallader. She died in Jan 1733.

 

EDWARD FOULKES NARRATIVE OF HIS REMOVAL

 

            Four years after the arrival of the settlers, Edward Foulke wrote, in Welsh, an account of his removal. This is a unique document, translated into English many years later by his grandson, Samuel Foulke of Richland. Written by a member of his company, it is the only account of the Gwynedd immigration known to exist and is more circumstantial and precise than almost any which refers to the Welsh settlers of Pennsylvania. Many copies of the translated document are in existence, it having been printed several times. No version of the document differs substantially from the others except in some of the genealogical details. The version used here was that preserved by the late William Parker Foulke of Philadelphia, and now found in Historical Collections Relating to Gwynedd, by Howard M. Jenkins (Spruance collection)

 

                        A brief Genealogy of Edward Foulke, with an account

                        of his family and their removal from Great Britain to

                        Pennsylvania, written by himself, originally in British

 

            I, Edward Foulke, was the son of Foulke, ap Thomas, ap Evan, ap Thomas Robert, ap David Lloyd, ap David, ap David, ap Evan Vaughan (ap Evan), ap Griffith, ap Madoc, ap Jewert, ap Madoc, ap Ririd Flaidd, Lord of Penllyn, who dwelt at Rhiwaedog. My mother’s name was Lowry, the daughter of Edward, ap David, ap Ellis, ap Robert, of the parish of Llanvor in Merionethshire.

            I was born on the 13th of the 5th month, 1651, and when arrived in mature age, I married the daughter of Hugh, ap Cadwallader, ap Rhys, of the parish of Spytu in Denbighshire; her mother’s name was Gwen, the daughter of Ellis, ap William, ap Hugh, ap Thomas, ap David, ap Madoc, ap Evan, ap Evan, ap Cott, ap Evan, ap Griffith, ap Madoc, ap Einion, ap Meredith of Cai-Faidog; and (she) was born in the same parish and shire with her husband. I had, by my said wife, nine children, whose names are as follows: Thomas, Hugh, Cadwallader and Evan; Grace, Gwen, Jane, Catherine and Margaret. We lived at a place called Coed-y-foel, a beautiful farm, belonging to Robert Price, Esq., of Rhiwlas, Merionethshire, aforesaid.. But in process of time, I had an inclination to remove with my family to the province of Pennsylvania; and in order thereto, we set out on the 3rd day of the 2nd month, A.D., 1698, and came in two days to Liverpool, where, with divers others who intended to go to the voyage, we took shipping, the 17th of the same month, on board the “Robert and Elizabeth,” and the next day set sail for Ireland, where we arrived and staid until the first of the month, May, and then sailed again for Pennsylvania, and were about eleven weeks at sea. And the sore distemper of the bloody flux broke out in the vessel, of which died five and forty persons in our passage; the distemper was so mortal that two or three corpses were cast overboard every day while it lasted. But through the favor and mercy of Divine Providence, I, with my wife and nine children, escaped that sore mortality, and arrived safely at Philadelphia, the 17th of the 5th month, July, where we were kindly received and hospitably entertained by our friends and old acquaintances.

            I soon purchased a fine tract of land of about seven hundred acres, sixteen miles from Philadelphia, on a part of which I settled, and divers others of our company who came over sea with us, settled near me at the same time. This was the beginning of November 1698, aforesaid, and the township was called Gwynedd, or North Wales. This account was written the 14th of the 11-month (January OS) A.D., 1702, by Edward Foulke

 

Translated from the British into English by Samuel Foulke

 

            The Foulke ancestry, like that of the McCarty family, has been traced to the European nobility. Edward Fouke’s “tree” has been extended to include Charlemagne, King John of England and the Earls of Winchester, Norfolk and Surrey, to name a few

The above named Roberts book contains and extensive number of charts and other genealogical data.

 

HUGH FOULKE, second son of Edward and Eleanor, was born at Coed-e-foel, Merionethshire, Wales, 7 mo. 6, 1685, and came to Pennsylvania with his parents in 1698, as described in the above narrative of his father. The family settled at the site of Penllyn, Montgomery County, where Hugh resided until after his marriage in 1713. The date of his removal to the Great Swamp (Quakertown) is not definitely known. He probably located immediately on his arrival on the tract of 313 acres on the west side of the “Road to Durham,” now know locally as the “California Road,” marked with his name on the 1735 map of the Manor of Richland as well as that of 1754 (see above maps). It is known that he was located in the Swamp by 1730, as on the 8th month of the 27th of that year he was named as an overseer of Richland Preparative Meeting, and it is quite possible that he was a resident there at the time of the organization of the Preparative Meeting in 1725, and possibly ever 10 years earlier.

            Hugh Foulke married Ann Williams, child of John and Ann Williams, who was born in Pembrokeshire, Wales, eleventh month 6th, 1693 and died on the tenth day of the ninth month, 1773.

            Hugh was an accepted minister of the Society of Friends and served Richland Meeting in that capacity for nearly thirty years. Hugh Foulk, considered to be one of the pioneers of the Great Swamp, died in Richland, 5 mo 21, 1760.

            [For much more information on Hugh Foulke, see The Friend, vol.XXXIII, page 12, and vol.XXXV, page 276.]

 

SAMUEL FOULKE was the third son of Hugh and Ann (above), and was born 12 mo 4, 1718. He was named clerk of the Richland Monthly Meeting when it was established in 1742, and continued in that office for thirty-seven years. He was one of the most prominent men of Upper Bucks County during his active life. He represented the county in the Provisional Assembly from 1761 to 1768. He was also for many years a Justice of the Peace and did a vast amount of public business, writing practically all the wills and

deeds for English-speaking people of his section.

            At the outbreak of the Revolutionary War, he and his brothers, John, Thomas and Theophilus, signed the Oath of Allegiance to the Colonies as requested by the Pennsylvania Assembly. This was considered an offence against the principles of Friends by the members of the Richland Meeting,  and the four brothers were removed from membership. [Note: That seems to be family tradition. Roberts points out that no existing Meeting minutes support this.]  However, it later appears that Samuel has returned to sit at the head of the Meeting and acted as clerk throughout the period and did much to hold the patriotic cause in accordance with what he believed to be in keeping with laws of the State. He died in Richland, 1 mo 21, 1797.

            Samuel married 8 mo 21, 1743, Ann Greasley, daughter of Thomas and Dorothy Greasley, who had emigrated from England to Haddonfield, New Jersey in 1723, and to Richland in 1724. She was born in Richland in 1724, and died there 5 mo 12, 1797, their marriage being the first solemnized at Richland Monthly Meeting after its establishment as such. She was made an elder in 1762.

 

Two children of Samuel and Ann come into the McCarty family:

 

ISRAEL FOULKE, seventh child of Samuel and Ann, was born 2nd month 4th, 1760, died 9th month 27th, 1824. He married Elizabeth Roberts, child of David Roberts and Phebe Lancaster, born 7th month 4th, 1760, died in 1831. Their sixth child, Hugh Foulke, married ELIZABETH ROBERTS [#911], child of Levi Roberts and PHEBE McCARTY [#91 above] See next generation for this family.

 

And….

 

JUDAH FOULKE, eighth child of Samuel and Ann, was born 1st month 18th, 1763, died 1847, married SARAH McCARTY [#94 this article]

In addition to the above mentioned, please see: Early Friends Families of Upper Bucks, also by Clarence Vernon Roberts, Old Richland Families, by Elwood Roberts, and the records of the Gwynedd and Richland Monthly Meetings and Matlack papers which may be examined in the Friends’ collections at both Haverford and Swarthmore colleges.

95        MARY McCARTY, fifth child of Thomas McCarty and Elizabeth Lancaster, born        in Richland, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 19 Dec 1769, died 1826;                        married Christian Savitz.

            They immigrated to Upper Canada (Ontario) where Christian Savitz owned and operated a sawmill. They were living there in 1820, when Elizabeth's sister, Phebe, visited on her mission to Upper Canada. Leslie R. Gray, in his annotated version of Phebe's diary, tells us that they lived on con. 4, Yarmouth Township, midway between Sparta and Union, two miles from the meetinghouse.  See Phebe's diary entry of 26th of the month, 4th of the week, 1820. There is no record of descendants. [Sources:  Carrell/Dungan, Phebe, Gray]

 

96        JOEL McCARTY, sixth child of Thomas McCarty and Elizabeth Lancaster, born in Richland, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 16 Mar 1771, died, Elkland, Sullivan County, Pennsylvania, buried Friends burying ground, Shunk, Sullivan County; married, 27 Nov 1797, Ellen Roberts, daughter of Moses and Jane Roberts, early settlers of Catawissa, Pennsylvania, born 1781, died, Elkland, 30 Apr 1844, buried Friends burying ground, Shunk.

            Joel moved with his parents to Muncy, Lycoming County, Pennsylvania in 1794. He soon met Ellen Roberts and they were married in 1797. Their marriage certificate [Haverford College collection] reads:

 

            Joel McCarty, son of Thomas McCarty of Muncy, Lycoming County, Pa.

            And

            Ellen Roberts, daughter of Moses Roberts, deceased

            Married under the care of Catawissa Monthly Meeting

            at

            Catawissa Friends Meeting November 27, 1797

 

            Signed  Joel McCarty, Ellen Roberts [and thirty witnessess]

 

 

            In 1800, Joel, with his wife Ellen and eldest child, Aaron, moved to Elkland, Sullivan County, on one of the ridges of the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains. Along the crest of the ridge he purchased a tract of land for a hundred pounds, presumably from either James Ecroyd or Joseph Reeves, and erected a log home, some outbuildings and a barn. At that time their grain had to be carried forty miles on horseback to be ground until a gristmill was built by Ecroyd some years later. A large frame house was later built, but the cabin stands to this day, remaining in the family through the Pardoe branch. [Hampton Pardoe acquired the property about 1900. He married #96142 Catherine McCarty]

 

 

JOEL AND ELLEN’S CABIN

 

            At an early time, the oft-related story runs, Joel made a profitable business in hunting panthers and wolves. There was a bounty of eight dollars on each wolf killed. That bounty was later raised to twelve dollars.

            Not unlike her sister-in-law, (#91) Phebe McCarty Roberts, Ellen Roberts McCarty (two different Roberts families, see above) was an incredible person by any standards. Not only was she one of the pioneers of Sullivan County, raising a family of eleven in the wilderness, but she was one of the regions most formidable religious leaders of the time, ministering to the local Society of Friends as well as journeying to northern New York State and Upper Canada.

            Ellen was raised in a strict family of Friends, which was clearly not allied with the teachings of the liberal Elias Hicks. Her father, Moses Roberts, must have been somewhat outspoken, for an entry in the minutes of the Philadelphia Monthly Meeting dated 25 Oct 1780 records him, together with one Job Hughes, as being "unjustly" confined in the Lancaster gaol. [See below for more on Moses Roberts]

            When Joel and Ellen first emigrated to the Elklands it was known as the Beechwoods. Some sources say that Joel coined the name Elklands, due to the large number of Elk in those parts.

            At first, the nearest Meeting for the small settlement of Friends in the Elklands was at Muncy, some twenty hard miles away. Then we find in May 1804 the following minute in the records of Muncy Monthly Meeting:

 

            A request from the Friends of the new settlement in the Beechwoods, called "The Elklands", was produced expressive of their desire of being privileged to hold a Meeting of divine worship on the First-day of each week at the home of Jesse Haines until a house is provided for that purpose...

            The first Meeting House in the area was built in 1805 through the efforts of Daniel Thomas, James Ecroyd, Jesse Haines, Ezra Haynes and Joel McCarty, on land donated by Ecroid, northwest of Eldredsville, just east Eldred's Tavery (later Mahlon Mercur's farm), and close by the land settled by Joseph Reeves as early as 1800 which reached down to Lincoln Falls. [SEE:  An Early History of the Elkland Meeting of Friends elsewhere on this site, by this author and Joseph Reeves, Pioneer of Sullivan County]

            This earliest church has been described as a one-story building with two windows, one door and a clumsy fireplace and chimney. It was afterwards used as a Sunday School building. It is now completely overgrown and is represented only by the remains of its foundation. Any evidence of a graveyard, if one existed, has long since disappeared.

            The Meeting continued until early in 1809, when the following minute is recorded in the records of the Muncy Monthly Meeting:

            First-month 1809 Friends appointed to the care of the Meeting at Elkland, report that part of their number have lately visited that meeting and Friends there appear easy to have a discontinuance; with which this meeting unites, and discontinues it accordingly.

            In 1816, the Meeting was revived chiefly through the efforts of Joel and Ellen. At that time, a second Meeting House was built at Shunk, Fox Township, aptly named for the great Quaker leader, George Fox. That Meeting House, which was probably built with the assistance of Joel McCarty, has also disappeared. Its burial ground remains, however, and there we find the stones marking the graves of Joel and Ellen. In 1819, Ellen was anointed a minister by the Quarterly Meeting of ministers and elders.

 

            The Meeting was changed from that of an Indulged Meeting to a Preparative Meeting in 1833.

            A third Meeting House, still in use, is in Piatt, Elkland Township, on the road between Lincoln Falls and Shunk.

 

 

PIATT MEETING HOUSE

 

            In 1830 Ellen traveled to New York State to visit the Quarterly Meetings in Scipio and Farmington and then on to Upper Canada (Ontario). And though no formal record of her journey exists, the appreciation for Ellen's ministry is clear in the following extract from the minutes of the Society of Friends of Upper Canada, Yonge Street Monthly Meeting, held 13th of the 5th month, 1830:

 

            ...Also our beloved friend Ellen McCarty, companion to our friend Mercy Ellis, attended this meeting (having previously visited all the branches thereof) and produced a Certificate of concurrence from Muncy Monthly Meeting  [though they had long lived in Elkland, that Meeting was under the care of the Muncy Monthly Meeting], Pennsylvania, dated the 12th mo. 23rd, 1829, endorsed by Philadelphia Quarterly Meeting - her company and Gospel Labours of Love amongst us were truly acceptable.

 

            An un-named diarist, quoted by Kenneth W. Wright in his Quakers of the Shunk Friends Meeting described Ellen's appearance at the wedding 11 Jul 1814 of Rebecca Bird and Edward Molyneux in Loyalsock (Forksville, Sullivan County):

 

            [she had] raven hair capped with the small Quaker bonnet, sculptured features and clear skin...of all the women present, she was the most beautiful save for the bride herself. She had ridden since before dawn to get to the wedding in company of her fifteen-year-old son, Aaron, traversing what was little more than a wilderness trail past Eldred's place.

The same diarist also states:

 

            I have come to know many women over the years, but never one so passionate and at the same time so oddly innocent as Ellen McCarty; strong, impetuous, generous, startling frank. She seemed like a woman of noble origin. Her exuberance of expression, couched in Quaker Thees and Thous, had something almost imperious about it.

 

            The following articles from The Friend, printed here in full, will serve to illustrate the incredible strength and depth of character of Ellen McCarty. It is interesting to note that the two articles were published exactly fifty years apart:

 

From The Friend, Vol. 24: 91, 7 Dec 1850:

 

                              TESTIMONY OF MUNCY MONTHLY MEETING,

                         CONCERNING OUR DEAR FRIEND ELLEN McCARTY

 

            She was the daughter of Moses and Jane Roberts, who were among the early settlers in the neighborhood of Catawissa, [in Pennsylvania,] and at that time members

of Exeter Monthly Meeting. Her father dying when she was quite young, she was left under the care of her widowed mother and other branches of the family, in a situation not very favorable for literary or religious instruction; yet during this period she appeared to be preserved in a state of innocence and tenderness of spirit.

               In the year 1798 she was united in marriage with Joel McCarty, a member of Muncy Monthly Meeting, and soon after removed with her husband to Elklands, [in Pennsylvania,] where a small settlement of Friends was then forming within the limits of this meeting. In this retired situation, very much secluded from the busy scenes of life, and subjected to many of the privations attendant on the settlement of new countries, her mind became more deeply impressed with the importance of seeking those treasures which neither moth nor rust can corrupt.

               Under these renewed exercises she often expressed the concern she felt on account of their not having a meeting for worship, and encouraged her Friends to unite in making application for an indulged meeting, which was granted in 1816.

               She was very diligent in the attendance of our religious meetings, though frequently having to press through many difficulties and hardships in the performance of this important duty; often speaking of the sweet peace she was at times permitted to

experience, when sitting in their little silent meetings; and encouraged her own family and friends not to suffer any worldly business so to engross their attention as to prevent them from a regular attendance.

               Having thus learned in the school of Christ, the excellency of his government, and by yielding to the manifestations of grace in her own heart, she became qualified to invite others to come, taste and see, that the Lord is good.

               Though her literary accomplishments were very limited, she was enabled in her public ministry to express herself in clear and impressive language.

               Her early communications carried with them evidence that they were from that Anointing which alone can qualify for true Gospel ministry; and in the year 1819 were approved by the Quarterly Meeting of Ministers and Elders. By closely following the leadings of the true Shepherd, she became a lively and acceptable minister; was a firm believer in the doctrines and principals of our religious Society, as set forth in the approved writings of our early Friends; and opposed to all speculative views and unprofitable theories. She bore a faithful testimony against the unsound views of Elias

Hicks and his followers, being frequently led in her communications to express her full belief in the authenticity and Divine authority of the Holy Scriptures, and in the divinity and offices of our blessed Savior as therein set forth.

               She several times visited the families of this Monthly Meeting, a service for which she was well qualified; frequently administering counsel and encouragement suited to the condition of those present.

               With the approbation of her Friends, in 1830, she performed a visit in Gospel love to the meetings composing Farmington and Scipio Quarterly Meetings, [in the State of New York,] and to those of Friends in Upper Canada.

               Although domestic duties necessarily claimed much of her time, having a large family of children, yet these seldom prevented her from attending to the calls of duty.

               Christian love so warmed her heart towards the whole human family, that she was a truly sympathizing friend to the afflicted in body or mind. The last few years of her life were spent in nursing the sick; frequently having to endure many hardships and privations when attending on the poor and remotely situated families of her neighborhood. And while administering to the wants of the body, she was ever mindful of that more precious part, the immortal soul; endeavoring to turn their minds unto Christ Jesus, as the only hope and means of salvation.

               In the last meeting she attended, the day before she was taken ill, she spoke of the shortness of time to some present, and encouraged those who might remain a little longer, to greater diligence in the attendance of their religious meetings.

               From the first of her sickness, she was impressed with a belief that she should not recover, and was much engaged in fervent supplication to the Father of mercies, that he would be pleased to preserve her in patient resignation to his blessed and holy will.

               The evening before her close, being asked if she would like to see her physician, she calmly replied, "No, there will be a change before morning;" and soon after requested he children might be sent for; some of whom resided a few miles distant.

               On their arrival, her powers of speech had so failed that she could say little more than "I have told you the truth before;" and in a few minutes quietly passed away on the 20th day of the Fourth month, 1844, in the sixty-third year of her age.

 

From The Friend, Vol.74: 189, 7 Dec 1900:

 

                                                        ELLEN McCARTY

 

               The following was obtained by Jane Pierce from Ellen McCarty, during one of her visits at Ellen's home:

 

               Ellen McCarty was a baptized and much esteemed minister in the Society of Friends, living at Elklands, Pennsylvania, a remote and rather isolated district, even now, and sixty or seventy years ago abundantly so.

               In the early periods of her religious life she underwent great hardships and sacrifices. Living six miles from the meeting she attended, generally going thither on foot, often leading a little child, and carrying another in her arms. On one of these occasions, a heavy snowstorm overtook her on her return. Her discouragements were so great from the difficulties she met with, that she thought it could be required of her to undertake the same again; but when the next meeting-day came she persevered, and in that meeting was her first appearance in the ministry.

            Continuing faithful to her Divine Leader, she became a clear and convincing minister, evidencing the true anointing. Hearing that a company of militia had beenassembled by their captain to exercise on a ground some miles from her house, and feeling her mind drawn to visit the muster-ground, and seek a religious opportunity with the captain; she believed if she would be faithful, a Friend and neighbor, named Hoagland, would be willing to accompany her. So she dressed and walked toward the neighbor's house, when to her astonishment, she found the Friend standing in her door with cloak and bonnet on waiting Ellen's arrival, though entirely ignorant of her concern by any outward channel. This great confirmation increased her faith.

            When they reached the muster-ground Ellen had a powerful interview with the captain, who laid down his arms, never again to resume them. [1870 P.H.]

 

            Kenneth W. Wright tells us that Ellen's funeral was well attended:

 

            Folks from every part of the Elklands, Forks, Fox Townships, and from over the mountain in Bradford             County arrived in buggies and on horseback. Jonathan Rogers made a coffin from the finest Birdseye maple. Her children carried her remains in silent procession to the burying ground in Shunk. My great-grandfather, Charles B. Wright, a Methodist preacher from over at East Canton, and Ann Rogers Wright, his wife, came over the mountain and met with people of every suasion; old William Molyneux leaning bent and gnarled on his cane was there; and there were Quakers from Muncy and places even more distant; and as the coffin moved along the rutted road, shadows of people to whom she had ministered for forty years obscured the procession from the sun.

 

He goes on to say:

 

            Ellen was to be spared in her lifetime the great contention, which engulfed the nation, and so many of her descendants, over the question of human slavery. She would be spared the schism amongst those Elkland Friends who, while pacifists, none-the-less sent some of their sons off to war.

It apppears that they never came to Lycoming or Sullivan County. About 1928, when the book was published, it shows them living on a farm near Newtown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

                THIRD GENERATION

 

                   Still, one day, in the midst of all these pleasures,

                   The traveler lost the boy as he had lost the child.

                   So he went on for a while without seeing anything,

                   Until at last he came to a young man. So he said to

                   The young man, “What are you doing here?” And

                   The young man said, “I am always in love. Come

                   And love with me.”

 

                   So the young man fell in love directly. Sometimes

                   They teased; sometimes they quarreled and made up.

                   But they were never happy asunder, and sat very

                   close to one another by the fire, and were going to be

                   married very soon.

            "Uncle John" McCarty, as he was known by all, could well have been known as the 'grand old man' of Muncy. He was most certainly the most beloved and most often quoted man of his day. He was born, grew up, and lived out his days in the house on Main Street built by his father in 1789. Uncle John remained a bachelor throughout his life but was said to have given more dinner parties than the good housewives...and that his wine cellar was quite as famous as his roast geese. The contents of this cellar, however, were dispensed among the sick and infirm.

 

 

     UNCLE JOHN MCCARTY

 

            An extended sketch of him, probably by J.M.M.Gernard, appears in Now and Then, Vol.II.,no.10,pp.146-150, from which are taken the following excerpts:

 

            Here he was taught, by example and by precept, the lessons of honesty, charity, chastity, frugality and sobriety, to which he so faithfully adhered throughout his long and tranquil life. Here he spentall his days, save the one year that he served as an apprentice at the blacksmith trade with his cousin, David Lloyd, then living at Jerseytown, and a month or two that he afterwards spent in visiting with some friends in the West. Here, also, on the 29th day of January, 1884, he closed his long life, a 'fell asleep.' He loved the old home. No sum of money, it has been said, would have induced him to part with it. The wide world had for him no attraction so great. How comparatively few of the many millions already born in America have reached the ripe age of ninety? And of these how relatively few have always lived, and breathed their last, in the same domicile where they received the 'breath of life!' This is a noble circumstance.

 

       ...Had his ambition been duly stimulated when young, and had his intellectual powers been properly trained, he would likely have been a far more useful and influential man. The beauty and value of many a gem is never known because never polished. Uncle John was fond of approbation, but he had not quite enough self-esteem to give him a right conception of his power and value. Decidedly benevolent in constitution, yet he lacked the proper ambition, and, like too many on earth, did not seem to realize how much the world had need of his service.

       ...Remarkable was the serene, regular, quiet, kindly and irreproachable life of 'Uncle John.'  There is so little of stirring incident in such a life, that it is difficult to gather material enough than for a meager biographical sketch. Few men have perhaps been contented with the world. Frugal and industrious, yet never in haste or ambitious to berich.  A lover of children, and beloved by all the children of the neighborhood, yet he never married and never experienced the tender feelings of a parent. A near neighbor said to us that 'when Uncle John threshed his grain, his barn generally swarmed with boys.' No two figures on our streets were more dear, and none perhaps better known to them, than   'Uncle John' and his famous chestnut sorrel horse, 'Old Salem.' It was a blessed privilege for the small boy to sit behind Uncle John on Old Salem's back, and ride to the creek or elsewhere. Our esteemed contributor, Alfred Hawley, to this day recounts with boyish glee the happy moments he thus spent with Uncle John astride of Salem. Salem, like his good master, lived to a great age, and as the master was everybody's 'uncle,' so was Salem everybody's horse. But it could not be so always. One day, when he was already well advanced in his thirty-eighth year, several ladies borrowed him to take a load of baskets with refreshments to a Sunday school picnic, on Shoemaker's Island. He brought them home safe, but the instant they drove up to the stable door, the faithful old beast, without a warning symptom of illness, fell over and almost instantly gave up the ghost. Several friends came to assist at the burial. They were preparing to drag the body to the field, but Uncle John would not permit such seeming cruelty. Old Salem must be tenderly lifted on a wagon and hauled out. At the grave it was proposed to knock off his shoes. 'No,' interposed Uncle John, 'Salem must be buried with his shoes on.”

       ...'How cling we to a thing our hearts have nursed.

 

       ...A man of immense physical power, yet Uncle John avoided all broils in an era when strong men were often tempted by the bullies whose chief glory it was to be regarded 'the best man.' He never fought a battle. He was known as 'The Peacemaker,' for he loved best to still the tempests of angry passion. Blessed are the peacemakers. But he was just as fearless as he was strong, kind and gentle. When, in 1842, the old schoolhouse in the south end of Muncy was stoned, and an anti-slavery lecturer was threatened with violence by a mob of excited pro-slavery roughs, and his voice was so drowned by a horrible noise that he could not be heard, Uncle John fearlessly stepped out, and putting his foot on the horse-fiddle, said: 'Men, stand back; we have now had enough of this.' It was gratifying to all peace lovers to see how quickly the peacemaker's pronunciamento [sic] was respected. On another occasion, when there was a general street fight in progress, Uncle John boldly stepped in among the combatants, and, as we were told by an eye-witness, tossed them to the right and left and ended the battle. Two of  the most noted of the bullies threatened to punish him for his interference. He deliberately walked upto them and taking one in each hand, bumped their heads together. They were soon glad to be let alone, and glad to let Uncle John alone.

 

       ...He was always opposed to slavery as a terrible crime against humanity. It is known that he performed valuable services to the oppressed as a conductor on the Underground Railroad.

 

       ...When the word, 'Uncle John McCarty is dead,' flew fast from lip to lip, the entire community realized that a noble old man had fallen, and all were sad. His lifeless body was followed to its resting place in the Muncy Cemetery by many sincere mourners. He will not be forgotten by this generation. The handsome memorial window, donated to the Lutheran Church, by his nephew, William J. McCarty, and placed near the pew in which he was so wont to sit, was not needed by those who knew him best to keep his memoryfresh and green, but it is a well deserved tribute to his character. He was not a great man in the usual worldly sense of the term great, but in the lovely traits of character for which he was noted he was a noble pattern for all men and boys, and we may therefore rightfully claim that he was great.

 

         "Fond man! though all the honors of your line

          Bedeck your halls, and round your galleries shine

          In proud display, yet take this truth from me -

          Virtue alone is true nobility."

Mr.McAffee paid $400. For his claim of 400 acres. Here they erected a double log-house, and returned for the women and children.

            Chicago, ninety miles distant, was their only market. For many years their produce was hauled there by wagon where it was sold and goods for their own use carried back. Both Alexander McAffee and his brother John, who accompanied him, were prominent in the community and occupied positions of trust. [Carrell/Dungan]

SOME NOTES ON THE EDWARD ROBERTS FAMILY:

 

EDWARD ROBERTS was a native of Merionethshire, Wales, where he was born Third-month (May), 1687. He came to America with “his cousin Thomas Lawrence” (according to family tradition). It has been supposed that he was left an orphan early in life. He settled at Byberry and early became a member of the Abington Monthly Meeting, the nearest at that date.

            At the monthly meeting held at Abington 10th month 27, 1714, the following minute was recorded:

 

            Wheras Edward Roberts and Mary Bolton having declared their intentions of marriage with each other before two monthly meetings, enquiry being made by persons appointed and found clear from all others on ye account of marriage did accomplish their marriage in ye unity of friends as is signified by their marriage certificate.

 

            At the monthly meeting held at Abington 11th month 28, 1716, the following entry was made in the minutes:

 

            A certificate was granted Edward Roberts and his wife in order for their removing hence to the Great Swamp.

 

            Thus they removed to the Great Swamp (later Quakertown) in the spring of 1716. Edward and Mary went on horseback and all of their belongings with them. They had one daughter at the time, Martha, who later married John Roberts, son of Thomas, another early settler. Soon after their arrival, Edward found that Mary had become infected with small-pox, probably from Indian neighbors. It became necessary to return along the Indian path to Gwynedd, the nearest settlement, where proper care could be taken of her. Here she was nursed back to health, and in five or six weeks returned with her husband and daughter back to the Swamp. She was the daughter of Everard and Elizabeth Bolton of Abington.

            Edward Roberts first erected a temporary shelter, composed mostly of bark, reared up against some of the large white oak trees that were so abundant in that vicinity. They lived there until 1728 when a more comfortable cabin was built, about a mile west of the meetinghouse in Quakertown. That cabin was built without lime, using clay for mortar and stood very firm for a century and a half.

            The Collection of Memorials of Deceased Minister and Others printed in 1787 by Joseph Cruikshank in Philadelphia, contains the following “testimony from Richland Monthly Meeting in Pennsylvania concerning Edward Roberts’ life and work in the ministry:”

 

            He was born in Merionethshire, in the principality of Wales, in the Third-month, 1687, and came into Pennsylvania about the twelfth year of his age; was early convinced of the principle of truth as held forth by Friends, with whom he joined in communion, and by his godly life and conversation through the course of time, was nearly united to them. His ministry was attended with great sweetness and energy, [he] laboring faithfully therein to the comfort and edification of the living whilst health and bodily ability continued; being a lively example of humility, plainness, temperance, meekness and charity, and of justice and uprightness in his dealings among men, which gained him the love and esteem of people of all denominations. He was a tender, affectionate husband and father, earnestly concerned to train up his children and family in the fear of God, and example and instruct them in the paths of virtue, and also manifested a true zeal for promoting and preserving peace and good order in Society, wherein he was often singularly serviceable. His bodily strength gradually diminishing, he was reduced even to a child’s state, in which he quietly departed this life without much sickness, on the 25th of the Eleventh-month, 1768, in the eighty-second year of his age; a minister above forty years.

 

            Edward’s wife, Mary, died Seventh-month 22, 1784, aged 96 years, 6 months, nine days.

 

DAVID ROBERTS, fourth child of Edward and Mary, born 1st-month 10, 1722, married 5th month 2, 1754, Phebe Lancaster, daughter of Thomas and Phebe (Wardell) Lancaster. Her sister Elizabeth married THOMAS McCARTY [#9 above]

 

ELIZABETH ROBERTS, third child of David and Phebe, was born 7th month 1, 1760, died 12th month 17, 1831. She married, 11th month 14, 1782, Israel Foulke, child of Samuel and Ann Foulke [see notes on the FOULKE FAMILY above], born 2nd month 4, 1760, died 9th month 27, 1824.

 

HUGH FOULKE, sixth child of Elizabeth and Israel, married ELIZABETH ROBERTS [#911, this article], child of Levi Roberts and PHEBE McCARTY [#91 above]

912      ABIGAIL ROBERTS, second child of Phebe McCarty and Levi Roberts, born near Quakertown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 16 April 1808, died in

Quakertown, 21 Mar 1882; married, at Richland Monthly Meeting, 16 Oct 1842, Joel Heacock, son of Jesse Heacock and Tacy Thompson of Rockhill Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, born 6 Mar 1794 (26 Mar?), died in Germantown, Pennsylvania,  17 Mar 1853.

            Joel attended school in Milford Township, Trumbauersville, and afterward engaged in farming and the general milling a lumber business. After locating on the family homestead, he continued those pursuits. In political views he was a Whig, and his religious faith was indicated by his membership in the Society of Friends. Joel died in Germantown while there on business.

            Joel had inherited a portion of his family's homestead in West Rockhill where the family lived there until after his death. In 1858, Abigail rented the farm out in order to pay for her son's education. She later lived for many years with her son, Joel Levi, in Quakertown. The farm itself later passed to other members of the Heacock family. [Sources:  Lancaster, Carrell/Dungan, EFFUB, Davis]

            Aaron was probably born in Muncy before his parents moved to Sullivan County.  He purchased the property in Elkland Township, Sullivan County in 1820 together with his brother Jesse. After clearing to woods, they built two log houses. Later, dissolving partnership, they drew lots to see which farm each should get. Aaron drew the farm nearer the road and afterward bought 200 additional acres at 1.25 per acre. The two log houses were later used as schoolhouses. The Aaron McCarty farm passed to his son Job and then to Job's son Francis. [Sources:  Lancaster, Carrell/Dungan]

            We also know of a family disaster from the Press and Standard, Saturday 22 June 1873, vol.1, no.32:

 

            At Saturday last at about eleven o’clock in the forenoon, the house of Silas McCarty in Elkland was discovered to be on fire. The fire, which was in the roof, spread with fearful rapidity, and in a few moments the whole building was engulfed in flames. All efforts to extinguish the fire were fruitless and there was no time to get the things out of the house; all the furniture and clothing of the family was destroyed. There was an insurance of about 1400. On the house which, we are informed, will not cover half the loss.

9(18)6    THOMAS LANCASTER LEEDOM, sixth child of Lydia McCarty and Charles Leedom, born near Newtown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 27 Mar 1828, died, Bristol, Pennsylvania, 19 Jul 1901; married 7 Jan 1858, Hannah A. Thomas, born 10 Mar 1834, died 3 Mar 1912.

            Thomas went to Cincinnati, Ohio when a young man and was a member of the firm of Shilito & Co. where he carried on a mercantile business until about the close of the Civil War. He then moved to Philadelphia and, in partnership with Aaron Shaw under the firm name of Leedom & Shaw, opened a retail carpet store at 910 Arch Street in Philadelphia, September, 1865. The following year they added a wholesale or jobbing department at 635 Market Street. Then, in 1869 Robert and Arthur Steward were added to the firm, and in 1870, the firm of Thomas L. Leedom & Co. began the manufacture of floor coverings. They established a large plant and manufactured carpets on a large scale in Philadelphia until 1885.

 

            The Leedom Family tells us:

 

            In those days carpets were woven on hand looms such as the weavers of rag carpets used. With the advent of what was known as the Gee loom(,) power was substituted for hand work, and from this was evolved the Murkland power loom, made by M.A. Forbush & Son. This loom was perfected by the necessary Jacquard attachment for producing designed fabrics, such as has been used in France and America for the production of   curtains and dress goods. Later, the Crompton-Knowles Loom Works perfected the highspeed Knowles loom, and afterwards the Crompton looms, making ingrain fabrics from twenty-seven inches and thirty-six inches to twelve feet wide.      

 

            In 1885, severe labor problems with the ingrain weavers forced the plant to relocate in Bristol, Bucks County and there increased their business to include dyeing and yarn spinning. Just prior to Thomas' death, the business was turned over to the Bristol Improvement Company, his son, Charles becoming the head of the enterprise.

 

            The Leedom Family tells us, further:

 

            During the (First) World War the plant was turned over to the government, and nearly 400,000 yards of cotton duck for tents were woven and accepted for the United States Army. And about 1,000,000 yards of horse-blanket lining for the Government was also made. This company installed the first seamless Wilton loom in America, and was also the first to install the wide ingrain looms for the manufacture of art squares or druggets.

 

     Thomas Leedom was a member of the Society of Friends. He was a member of the Union League Club and prominently identified with public affairs. [Sources:  Lancaster, Carrell/Dungan, Leedom]

        But the traveler lost the young man one day,

        As he had lost the rest of his friends, and,

        After calling them to come back, which they

        Never did, he went upon his journey. So he

        Went on a while without seeing anything, until

        He came to a middle-aged gentleman.  So he

        Said to the gentleman, “What are you doing

        Here?” And his answer was, “I am always busy.

        Come be busy with me.”  So, he began to be

        Very busy with that gentleman, and they

        Went on through the wood together.

4314    HARRIET McCARTY, fourth child of Benjamin McCarty and Sarah Van Fleet, born in Muncy, Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, 23 May 1823, died in Seward, Illinois, 18 Jan 1889; married, 6 Jan 1842, Amos Scott, M.D., born Fairfield, Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, 5 Oct 1820, died, Seward, Illinois, 19 Sep 1901. The following is taken from Carrell/Dungan regarding Dr. Scott:

 

            The best record that can be given of the life of Dr. Scott is contained in the resolutions adopted at the time of his death by his Post, G.A.R., from which the following abstracts are taken, viz:

 

            “Resolutions of Respect to the memory of Dr. Amos Scott, late Assistant Surgeon, U.S.Vol.

            “Be it Resolved the following sketch of the life of Dr. Amos Scott be spread upon the records of Nevin Post, No.1, G.A.R., and a copy sent to his bereaved family:

            “Dr. Amos Scott was born October 5, 1820 in Fairfield, Lycoming County, Pa. He was educated in the public schools and upon reaching manhood, studied medicine in Philadelphia, and on receiving his degree, settled in his native state, where he resided until 1857, when he removed to Seward, Ill., where he engaged in farming. Our comrade was a successful farmer, and blessed with a large family, who have honored his name by their scholarly attainments and upright lives.

            “He enlisted as a private soldier, February 8, 1862, in Co.C, 154th Regiment, Illinois Volunteer Infantry. He was commissioned Asst. Surgeon and was mustered out at the close of the War, September 21, 1865.

            “He returned to his home in Seward, Ill., where he established a large and successful practice.

            “Dr. Scott was one of Nature’s noblemen, endowed with a brilliant mind, and a generous heart, few men were duly honored by his friends and neighbors than was our comrade.”

 

            The following details of the life of Dr. Scott are supplied by his family:

 

            Dr. Scott and Harriet McCarty, his wife, and their six children, left Pennsylvania during the summer of 1857, and removed to northern Illinois. They traveled the first stage of that journey over the recently finished Northwestern Railroad to Pecatonica, Winnebago County, a small village on the Pecatonica River, something over 100 miles north-west of Chicago. Here they left the train and drove in lumber wagons about five miles southward into Seward Township in the same county, where they settled on virgin prairie land, and lived the life of the pioneers of the day, this point being five miles from a railroad and post office until 1889.

            They occupied different farms for a few years, but prior to 1861, purchased the 80-acre farm that was the family home until long after the death of Harriet (McCarty) Scott. Her youngest child was born there in 1861, and she has owned the farm ever since her father’s death, though she has not lived there for many years.

            Here Harriet (McCarty) Scott and her family endured the privations of the frontier, while her husband served in the Civil War.

            At the time Dr. Scott enlisted in the army, though he had attended lectures one winter in Philadelphia, he was not able to proceed further with his studies at that time. His family reports that he attended them, and practiced on his neighbors’ horses and cattle, as the exigencies of the frontier demanded of him, but he did not regularly practice his profession.

            After serving some time as a private soldier, he was sent to the Field Hospital for some minor ailment, and soon was attending and caring for sick and wounded soldiers. The medical officers, noticing his skill and knowledge, insisted upon his transfer to the medical department, saying, “We need him here more than you do in the ranks.”

            After his discharge from the army, he renewed his study of medicine in Chicago, and obtaining his degree, practiced medicine the remainder of his life, continuing to reside on his farm, and became the beloved physician of his section, traveling miles from his home, and remained a student all his life. His only son and four of his grandsons followed him in the same profession.
Editor's Note: In September 2007, Laura S. Trettevik of Bellevue, WA, sent us the information that Amos and Harriett (McCarty) Scott had produced five generations of practicing physicians, along with their photographs. You can access this information at the Scott Physician Heritage.

On the Fourth of July, 1850, he erected the first flagstaff ever erected in that section...a great event. He was in Minneapolis when there was but a single log house on the site. St. Anthony at that time was a mere trading post, and St. Paul an Indian village. During his pioneer life he visited Winona, at which time there were but a half dozen buildings where now stands a beautiful city. He spent about five years near Stillwater, Wisconsin as a farmer, and took up a claim where now stands the city of Black River Falls. In the 1870s he moved to Woodland, Wisconsin, where he married Sarah Smith. He lived there until his death. [Source:  Carrell/Dungan]

9121    JOEL LEVI HEACOCK, child of Abigail Roberts and Joel Heacock, born 2 Oct 1843, died Aug 1909; unmarried.

 

  

         

 

            A Genealogical and Personal History of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, by William Watts Hart Davis offers the following remarks regarding Joel:

 

            Joel Levi Heacock attended the public schools in his home district through several winter seasons, and in the summer months worked of the farm assisting in the labors of the fields. His father died March 17, 1853, while on a business trip to Germantown, and the family continued on the home farm until 1858, when Mrs. Heacock rented the place, for she realized that her son required better educational advantages, and removed to Quakertown in order that he might enjoy educational opportunities that were in advance of those afforded by the community schools. There he continued his studies in the Friends' school, and later became a student at what was known as the Bucks County Normal Classical School, conducted by A.R. Horne, a native of Springfield Township, Bucks County, and a graduate of Pennsylvania College, located at Gettysburg, this state.

            Following the completion of his normal and classical course, Mr. Heacock assisted as a teacher for one year in that institution, after which he joined James Brunners in the conduct of a school for the training of teachers that they might be prepared for the work of the public schools in the townships. Later Mr. Heacock became the principal in the Friends' school, occupying that position for a year. He next entered into partnership with Rev. George M. Lazarus, pastor of St. John's Lutheran church, and for a time conducted a school in the basement of that church. Many of the boys and young men who pursued their studies under his direction became active, prominent and influential in various departments of business life. Mr. Heacock has ever been deeply interested in the welfare and progress of his home locality, and has done everything in his power to promote its up building, but has never aspired to office outside of Quakertown. He served as chief burgess for six years, and as a member of the town council labored effectively and honorably for the improvement of the borough along substantial lines of progress. Interested in the advancements that would make Quakertown an attractive place of residence and also a good business center, he did everything possible to secure the lighting of the town by electricity. With this end in view he visited different places in New York, Ohio and Indiana, to investigate conditions and plans of lighting those towns. Few men have labored so untiringly and along such practical lines for the benefit of the borough as has Mr. Heacock. His efforts have ever been of the most practical character, and his fellow-townsmen recognizing the value of his services, in 1869 he was appointed notary public, and later became interested in the real estate business, which he conducted in connection with the performance of his duties as justice of the peace. In the last mentioned office he has ever been desirous of bringing to a friendly conclusion any matter of dispute or litigation between contestants who appeared before him.

            Mr. Heacock is now living a retired life [1905], and has gathered around him many friends who are deeply interested in the social, economic and municipal questions which elicit his earnest attention and cooperation. Everything that tends to benefit mankind is a matter of concern to him, and especially has he labored for the welfare of his home locality and native country.

 

            In addition, Joel is known to have made daily weather observations for the U.S. government.

            He was also deeply involved in family history. This compiler is in possession of copies of several pages of his family records, many regarding the Lancaster branches, as well as a correspondence between him and his cousin, Mary Lancaster Best. The original copies of these records are held by the Spruance Library, Bucks County Historical Society, Doylestown, Pennsylvania. [Sources: Lancaster, Carrell/Dungan, Davis]

(Source: Lancaster)

 

9293    LOUIS PHILLIPE McCARTY, third child of Lewis Walton McCarty and Abi O. Sheppard, born in Fairfield (Clearfield?), Ohio, 22 Apr 1836; married, 21 Jul 1878, Lilla D. Phelps, born in Boston, Massachusetts, 3 (2?) Jun 1855.

            Louis was an editor, author, inventor, merchant and publisher in San Francisco for many years. His monthly Statistician and biennial Statistician and Economist provided readers with a variety of information along the lines of a World Almanac. Others of his books included McCarty's Political Statistician and The Great Pyramid Jeezah.

            The following is a selection from his Health, Happiness, and Longevity (Health without Medicine, Happiness, without Money, The Result, Longevity):

 

                                                       SUPERSTITIONS

 

            Numerous are the dangerous superstitions about marriage. For instance, the bride must not try on her wedding gown, or ill-luck will follow. She must not look in the glass after she is fully dressed and ready for the ceremony. She must not enter her new home by stepping over the threshold, but must be carried over it by one of her relatives. A piece of the bride's cake must be broken over her head as soon as she is safely on the other side. It is very unlucky for her to be in a happy state on her wedding-day. She must be as dolorous as possible, violent fits of weeping being especially beneficial.

            It is a good idea for the brides-maids to throw away as many pins as possible on the wedding-day, as this will hasten marriage. The bride should throw away her slipper in leaving the wedding feast, and she who catches it will be the first married. The month of May is generally considered the most unfortunate for marriages. The lucky months are January, April, August, October, and November. January is especially lucky.

            Lovers should carefully avoid passing a sharp or pointed instrument from one to the other. Such things   tend to cause quarrels. The wedding should be put off by all means if a cat sneezes on the eve of a wedding-day. It should never take place if the cat is black. To sweep dust over a girl's feet or legs will be certain to make an old maid of her.

            Should the younger sister of a family marry first, the older sister will be condemned to lasting celibacy unless they dance at the wedding in their stocking-feet.

The wedding ring of the mother is an infallible cure for eruptions on the skin of the child. The ring must be rubbed three times around each sore. Cure is certain.

            The virtue of the dew that glitters and sparkles in every leaf and flower of a May morning has been recognized from the earliest times. If a young girl wishes to obtain and preserve a glorious complexion she should venture out of a May morning and wash her face in the dew.

            To spit in the hand before undertaking anything, whether in love, war, or business, will not fail to bring luck.

            If you are out fishing, do not step over your rod, or you will catch no more fish than did Simple Simon in his mother's pail.

            To recall a person after they have left the house is bad luck. To go back for something forgotten is also bad luck, unless you sit down before going out again.

            If, when you sit before the fire, a live coal jumps out, it is a sign that you are to have good luck, especially in money matters. To wash in water another has washed in is not only bad sanitarily, but also superstitiously. He who makes many crumbs at the table will never have any money to spare. It is flying in the face of fortune to sweep dust out of the front door or allow it to be swept out. In so doing you are sweeping out your good luck. To count one's gains brings luck, but to find money is the worst possible luck.

            The 4-leaved clover once found, should be    treasured, as every school child knows and believes. It brings luck of every description. Eve attempted to carry a 4-leaved shamrock of precious stone from Paradise with her, but it fell and shattered at her      feet. Think of the disaster thus entailed upon the human race!

            To see the moon over the left shoulder is as   unlucky as to hold the four of clubs at cards. But the new moon seen over the right shoulder, or straight in front, portends fortune as smiling as her own bright rays.

            One should be careful in writing a letter not to cross out a word in it. To do so means that any request you may have made in the letter will not be granted. It is very unlucky to dry a letter before the fire, instead of allowing it to dry slowly and naturally. But unluckiest of all is to drop the letter on the floor after finishing it.

            Birth, marriage and death are the three most important things in every life. Death, being the most dreadful, comes in for the largest share. One of the      best ways given us of avoiding it when sickness is upon us is to allow the report to be circulated that you are already dead. The chances are strongly in favor of getting well. Especially is this so if friends begin to arrange for the funeral. A sure sign of early death is for a person to scatter the leaves of a red rose upon the ground. It is extremely hazardous to an infant's life to pare its nails before it is a year old. They should be bitten off.

           

            Some superstitions of my early life which I still remember are -

 

            1. Turning a loaf of bread upside down creates family quarrels.

            2. Allowing anyone to pass between you and your companion evil and death to                  follow.

            3. Breaking a mirror, death in the family.

            4. Having your hair cut on Sunday, forgetfulness.

            5. Beginning an undertaking on Friday, ill luck.

            Job and Georgia lived on the Aaron McCarty homestead.Job was apparently both active in local politics and vocal in his beliefs.   In the Press and Standard, Saturday March 1, 1873, vol.1, no.15, we find:

 

Following officers elected in County last Friday:

 

Elkland:          Judge of elections       Allen Little

                        Inspectors                    Job McCarty

                                                            S. Bryan

                        Assessor                      J.W. Pardoe

 

            Then, in The Review, December 14, 1882, vol.5, no.42:

 

            The Republican party is still being reinforced in this part of the county, the young Republican having recently taken up his abode with Job McCarty in this place. But we think he will hardly count one for Blaine in 1884.

 

            In 1917, Job sold the farm to his son Francis but remained living there with his wife and spending winters in Vestal, New York.

            On November 13, 1922, they celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary when many who had attended the wedding in 1872 were present. [Carrell/Dungan, Molyneux I, II, III, Heess]

9617    Ellen McCarty, seventh child of Aaron McCarty and Elizabeth Pardoe, born 14 Jan 1842, died 1906; she was unmarried.

            Ellen taught at the Friends School in Elkland Township, Sullivan County for many years. She lived with her sister, Elizabeth, wife of Theodore C. Heess. [Lancaster,

Carrell/Dungan, Heess]

 

9618    ELIZABETH McCARTY, eighth child of Aaron McCarty and Elizabeth Pardoe, born in Sullivan County, Pennsylvania, 16 Aug 1844, died 4 Mar 1937, buried in the Friends Burial Ground, Elkland Township, Sullivan County, Pennsylvania; married, 29 Mar 1871, Theodore C. Heess, child of Christian and Dorothea Heess, born in Connstadt, near Stuttgart, in the Kingdom of Wurttemberg, Germany, 4 Feb 1845, died 6 Oct 1916, buried in the Elkland Friends Burial Ground.

            Theodore came to America in 1852 with his parents, three brothers and two sisters, when he was seven years old. He purchased a heavily-timbered piece of land adjoining his father's farm, and by very hard work he cleared it of the timber, stumps and stones and developed one of the best farms in that section. He had a power mill and ground all the grain for his livestock. He also had a blacksmith shop where he did all of his shoeing and repair work. Theodore's death, at the age of 72, was caused by a fall from an apple tree.

            The following item from The Review, November 16, 1882, vol.5, no.38, testifies to this family’s character:

 

            A correspondent from Elkland sends us the following communication:

 

            A little lad, apparently in very destitute circumstances, appeared at the home of Theodore Heess in Elkland on the evening of the first inst. He was taken in, and kindly cared for by the inmates. And, as he is a promising looking little chap, when “fixed up a bit” he will probably be retained in the family. It is hoped that he will show his gratitude to his benefactors by continuing in his present good behavior. Weight ¾ lbs .net.

 

            Theodore and Elizabeth were consistent members of the Society of Friends and were an inspiration to their children who greatly admired them. [Sources: Lancaster, Carrell/Dungan, Heess]

9653    JOSEPH PARDOE, third child of Jane McCarty and William Pardoe, born 30 Mar 1845; married 1. 25 May 1871, Eliza Ann Molyneux, daughter of John Molyneux and Martha Sadler, born 23 Sept 1838, died 13 May 1882; married 2. 18 Apr 1883, Mary Kelder.

            They lived in Eldredsville, Sullivan County, Pennsylvania. Joseph must have been very active in community affairs, for we find this amusing item in the Press and Standard, Saturday, July 12, 1873, vol.1, no.34:

 

            The citizens of Elkland vicinity assembled in a beautiful grove on the premises of Joseph Pardoe and enjoyed a picnic dinner with the “feast of reason and flow of soul,” which is usual at such gatherings. We understand that Judge Bedford was among the speakers, but the names of the others we are unable to give. Several of our correspondents must have been on the grounds, but why they have not reported we are unable to say. If we did not know Elkland in general, and our correspondents in particular, to be sound on the temperance question, we should suspect that they had not recovered from the festivities of the day.

 

            There were no children from either marriage. [Sources:Lancaster, Carrell/Dungan, Heess, Molyneux I]

            Lewis and his first wife built a home in Forks Township, Sullivan County on "a knoll between Winifred Clarks and Clifford Molyneux’s, on the left side of the road."Because lightning kept striking the hose, they built another home in 1888. This one was "down in the valley about a quarter of a mile south of Vernon Broschart's, on the west side of the road across from the stone row on the Broschart's property."

            The children all attended the Pleasant Valley School "now owned by Robert Caldwell and Ned Selwyn.”

9676    CHESTER McCARTY, sixth child of Joel McCarty and Ann Woodhead, born 7 Nov 1848, died 16 Sept 1876; he was unmarried.

            Family tradition tells that Chester went off to fight for the Union Army during the Civil War and never returned home. After his death, the family had to ship his body home, at great expense, but we have no record of burial location. [Sources:Lancaster, Carrell/Dungan, Heess, Woodhead]

 

9677    JOHN SYLVESTER McCARTY, seventh child of Joel McCarty and Ann Woodhead, born in Sullivan County, Pennsylvania, 16 Nov 1850, died in Michigan, 23 Jun 1909; married 1. 1874, Mary Jane Lemma, died 1875; married 2. 1876, Laura Jane Monroe (Nichols), born 1847, died 1900.

            John Sylvester moved to Michigan while a young man and spent the rest of his life there. His first wife died in 1875, probably in childbirth or complications thereof. His first child, Ellen was then raised by Cynthia (Monroe) McCall, possibly the sister of John's second wife, Laura Jane Monroe.    

            It seems that there were four moves: Ellen was born in Otisville, Lapeer County, Michigan where she was raised by Cynthia McCall; the next two children were born in or near Mt. Clemens (now a suburb of Detroit), Macomb County, Michigan; the next two were born In or near Columbiaville, Lapeer County, Michigan, some fifty miles northwest of Mt. Clemens; and, finally, in 1891, the whole family moved to Ironwood, Gogebic County, Michigan on the far northwestern tip, at the Wisconsin border. They also possible lived for a time in Otter Lake, Lapeer County, just prior to moving to Ironwood. While they were living in Otisville, John's brother, Wells was also. At least one of Wells' children, Mabel, was born there.

            Ken McCarty tells us that John Sylvester was deaf in later years. He was walking to work on the railroad track. He did not hear the train coming. The engineer said he looked back just as they hit him. He was killed instantly. His wife, Laura Jane Monroe McCarty, was walking across the family pasture in Ironwood. Their bull attacked and gored her. John went to the rescue and dragged her out while beating the bull between the eyes with a two by four. He managed to save her life, but she was confined to a wheel chair. She died at the age of 47.

9678    SEPTER McCARTY, eighth child of Joel McCarty and Ann Woodhead, born 17 Apr 1853. Septer never married and lived all of his life with various relatives in Forks and Elkland Townships in Sullivan County, Pennsylvania. It seems odd that no record of his death or burial place exists, though it is likely to be the Warburton Hill Cemetery.

            Uncle Sept lived most of the time with the family of his brother Lewis. The story is told of the night At Lewis’s farm that the lightning during a storm was so forceful that it knocked Septer right out of bed. [Sources:Lancaster, Carrell/Dungan, Heess, Woodhead]

 

9679    WELLS McCARTY, ninth child of Joel McCarty and Ann Woodhead, born in Sullivan County, Pennsylvania, 15 Mar 1855, died in Otisville, Michigan, 19 Apr 1922, buried in the Smith Hill Cemetery, just south of Otisville on State Route M15; married 1. 1876, Minerva Fawcett, daughter of John and Phebe Fawcett, born 1853, died in Michigan, 1896; married 2. in Otisville, Michigan, 1898, Lucy Ranney.

            He moved to Lapeer County, Michigan shortly after marrying his first wife where he worked on a farm for a short time. Soon after he purchased a farm in that county and worked it for about six years. While he was living in Lapeer County, so also was his brother, John Sylvester, who moved to Ironwood, Michigan in 1891. Wells later sold the farm to buy one in Genesee County, Michigan, where he lived for nearly fifteen years. He then traded that farm for one in Lapeer County, Michigan where he lived until March 1922 when he moved to Otisville, Michigan, only to die a month later. He and his family were members of the Free Methodist Church, which he joined early in life. [Sources: Lancaster, Carrell/Dungan, Heess, Woodhead, Smith MS]

            For a biographical sketch and some of the writings of "Doc" McCarty, see DOCTOR FREMONT MCCARTY: AN APPRECIATION. For background on Bessie’s family, see SOME NOTES ON THE LEE FAMILY.

            The family lived for many years on the farm on McCarty Ridge in Elkland Township. After Doc died, the farm became too much of a burden to maintain. Only the two youngest children, Benjamin and Donovan, were living at home to help their mother run the farm.

BACK ROW: GLADYS MAUDE McCARTY, UNCLE “SEPT,”
AUNT ANGELINE TEETER, BESSIE LEE McCARTY, “DOC” McCARTY
FRONT ROW: DONOVAN, BEN AND ROSCOE McCARTY

 

Late in 1925, the farm was sold and its contents put up for auction. Donovan McCarty describes what happened next:                                

            After the farm was sold, my mother and I went to live with Sadie Rogers down at Lincoln Falls. Her husband had died - that was Ed Rogers. And we were there that winter. Ben was there for a while then went          to Endicott. Roscoe, meanwhile, had come to Endicott to work in the tannery. After that winter, mother was looking for work, and she heard about this place out in Harrison Valley, Pennsylvania, out in Potter County.           There was this quite wealthy family; they were looking for someone to be a housekeeper and to care for the lady of the house who wasn't well at all. Mother got the job and I stayed with her at the home of this       woman's at Mills, Pennsylvania. We were there a year and they finally put the lady in a home, in an institution. Well, my mother went to Buffalo to work. Someone got her a job as a housekeeper.

            After a time she came back to Endicott here and she went to work at the Susquehanna Valley Home in Binghamton. She was one of the matrons in the boys' building. She lived right at the home. When she wanted to retire, she came to Union and kept an apartment for Ben and I. Ben got married first. After Ben got married, mother and I had a little apartment over here on West Main Street.

 

            After Donovan was married, Bessie lived alternately with the families of her children. At the time of her death she was living with her daughter, Gladys McCarty Bailey and her family in Westover, New York. [Carrell/Dungan, Heess, Woodhead, DCM]
