My interest in the Heverly History is due to the fact that my wife, Joanne Rinebold Rockwell is related to them. Her grandmother, Arvilla Heverly Carner Richar, was a sister to Clement Heverly. While most of the Heverlys lived in Overton on the Bradford county side, several did marry and move to Sullivan county. Therefore I thought it might be of interest to those doing research in the area to have access to my database on Heverly.

You will discover in the following history that two branches of the Haberle/Haberlig/Heverly/Haverly family came together in the marriage of Daniel D. Heverly and Jane Elizabeth Haverly. Although spelled differently, these surnames reflect the same ancestry. In fact, Daniel and Jane were actually second cousins! Their common ancestor was Johannes Adam Haberlig, and his wife Anna Maria Jarrett. Johannes emigrated from the Western Palatinate Region of Germany on the Loyal-Judith in 1739 (at age 25). This information can be found in 18th Century Emmigrants [Volume II, by Annette Burgert]. The list of passengers includes "Adam Heuerley", Bpt. at Reischweiler Reformed Church, sponsored by Christian Wenger & Adam, son of Henrich Dietz of Eschweiler. After marrying Maria in 1744, they lived in the Whitehall Township area of Lehigh County of Pennsylvania. [Source: Lehigh County Historical Society, Allentown, PA].
Johannes and Anna Maria (Jarrett) Haberlig had several children, two of whom were brothers named Philip Haberle and Daniel Haberly. Both spellings are used in the records. All of the children of Daniel and his wife, Catharina Ott, were baptized at the Jordan Reformed Church, South Whitehall Township, Lehigh Co., PA, with their last name spelled "Haberly". They apparently changed the spelling of their name to Heverly sometime after moving to Overton! Philip's descendants instead used the "Haverly" version of the name. Philip was born in 1768 and Daniel was born in 1764.
Philip, who married Polly Wright, was the grandfather of Jane Haverly, with Janes parents being Jacob and Mary (Dunmore) Haverly. Daniel D. Heverly, who married Jane Haverly, was the son of Daniel and Magdalena (Wilt) Heverly, and grandson of Daniel and Catharina (Ott) Heverly. So, to sum up Daniel and Jane had the same great grandparents, Johannes Adam and Anna Maria (Jarrett), and were therefore second cousins. The Haberlig family record extends back into Germany.

He was Justice of the Peace for Windham Twp., PA., for many years. John's father died when he was quite young. Despite John's young age he assumed his father's business ventures and dealt largely in lumber staves, plaster and all the products of the forest and farm. These products were transported by raft and the crude ark of the time to Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., PA., and other city markets. The return trip home would be accomplished by either a packet boat or on foot. As he became prosperous he began to buy and sell land, and was probably the largest land owner in the Windham Twp. area. It is said that he has at different times owned over two thirds of the land in Windham Twp., and at the time of his death was by far the wealthiest man in the county. John established the first Post Office and was the first Postmaster at Scottsville. He was a prominent Mason being one of the charter members of Franklin Lodge, and a devout Presbyterian. Besides the office of Justice of the Peace, he held nearly all the offices of the town at different times and good roads being one of his hobbies, he was supervisor of roads for many years. At his own request he was buried on the farm in Scottsville, PA., where he had been born and raised.

9.     JACOB HAVERLY (PHILIP) was born 6 Feb 1805 in SCHOHARIE CO., NY He died 2 Apr 1886 in Overton, BRADFORD CO, PA and was buried in HEVERLY CEMETERY, Overton, PA.

Jacob married first, Miss Mary, daughter of Larry and Irene Fairchild Dunmore, of Susquehanna County, Pa. He had followed his brother Philip to Overton from Auburn, Susquehanna County, where they were raised on the family farm of their parents, Philip & Polly Wright Heverly. Jacob was the most successful farmer of the pioneers and always had more than enough. He eventually cleared more acres in Overton than any other man in his day. He lived with his brother Philip for a year and a half. He erected a plank house where his son Jacob "Fred" Heverly made his home after his parents passed on. In Clement F. Heverly's histories he quotes Jacob as saying "When I came in the place there were not more than a hundred acres cleared in all. "Uncle Heverly" lived in a log house near the residence of Widow Heverly; John Heverly lived down on the flats; Christian Heverly, on the Hausknecht place; Daniel Heverly, on the farm now occupied by his son Daniel; Henry Heverly lived adjoining his brother Christian; Leonard Streevy lived opposite his brother-in-law, Daniel Heverly; and Henry Sherman lived below Overton village, near Black Creek. The winter of 1827-28 was the mildest I ever witnessed with scarcely any snow, and much rain. " Jacob was the first in the area to own a mowing machine, the "Wood". Jacob was a man pleasant in demeanor and slow to anger, disclosing a strong and fearless will power when thoroughly aroused. He was frugal, and none ever questioned his honesty. As a father he was kind and indulgent, and never was guilty of improper language in the vicinity of his children. He was esteemed by his neighbors, enjoyed their confidence and was frequently called on by them to fill places of trust and honor. He originally belonged to the Democratic party, changed to the "Whig" in 1840, and become a Republican in 1856. He never missed a township or general election. The first election in Heverlyville (Overton) was held March 18, 1853, at the home of William Waltman, for the purpose of electing Township officers. The court appointed Jacob judge of this special election of which he says: "The day following the election I delivered the returns at the county seat, making the trip on foot and returned the same day." During this election Jacob had been elected one of five school directors.

Mary attended Sunday services regularly, sometimes walking, but usually rode her bay pony "Sal", taking a couple of the children on with her. Rev. Charles Wright, who preached the funeral sermon, in conversation with us, thus referred to her: " Mary Heverly was one of the best women I ever knew; She was of the salt of the earth. Her house was always a home for the ministers. My soul was sore with sadness when I was called to pronounce her eulogy." "Aunt Charlotte" Ormbsy paid this tribute: " I loved to visit Mrs. Heverly; She was an excellent Christian lady. She used to stop by the road-side, when overcome by fatigue, and read her bible while on her road to meeting. She was not a strong woman." Mrs. Heverly took great interest in the reading of her children, and installed in their minds principles, which bring forth golden fruits. Note: Personal visit to Heverly Cemetery September 24, 1993 as follows: Mary is listed on same stone as her husband Jacob Haverly, her mother & father.

He enlisted in the 52nd Regiment, Pa. Vol., as sergeant, October 11, 1861, and was discharged from the service for wounds received in the Battle of Fair Oaks, Virginia, May 30, 1862. He was discharged August 11, 1862. At this battle, he was shot through the head and the bullet entering just below the ear and passing through the head, came out in the neck just below the jaw. For a long time his life was under the skillful treatment of Dr. Becker until he could recover enough to return to his home. At home he continued his rapid recovery. As a soldier he performed his duty faithfully and well. He was detailed as recruiting officer and in the performance of his duty was compelled to do many disagreeable duties in the enrollment of old friends as well as enemies of the cause. He was many times threatened by those not loyal to the Government, but he never faltered from his assigned duties. While on recruiting duty he became suspicious that certain families unfriendly to the Government were concealing a deserter. He with a friend, went to the house in the night, searched it, found the man, and took him into custody. They delivered the deserter to Towanda, pa., turning his over to authorities. Alvah was considered one of the best business minds of Wyoming county. Carefully groomed in business by his father, Alvah gradually assumed the duties as head of his father's business. He eventually controlled and monitored all of his father's large interest. Upon the death of his father, Alvah and brother Charles, were assigned executors of the extensive estate. Alvah was a very active politician and a stalwart Republican, always ready to lend his honest and undivided support for his party. Aside from holding some of the town offices and one term as County Auditor, he never sought after or held any state office, although he was highly recruited many times. Like his father, Alvah was very ambitious and always found work a pleasure. He was a very kind husband and father, a man of no bad habits and a member of the Methodist Church. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity, but never took a great interest in its activities. His home was his castle. He took great pride in his new home that he built on lands of the old Whitcomb farm in Scottsville, PA. The old army wound began to show its effects on Alvah about the same time as his new home was completed. Alvah died August 8, 1888, and was buried on his farm in a family burial ground. On September 6, 1865, he was married to Mary J. Keeney, daughter of Seth L. Keeney, who was a grandson of Mark Keeney, one of the first settlers of Wyoming County, and a veteran of the Revolutionary War. Alvah & Mary J. had two sons and one daughter as follows: John Benton, Flora, and Seth Lee. Flora died at three years, and Seth Lee died at eighteen months.

 

ALVA married Mary J. KENNEY on 6 Sep 1865 in WYOMING CO., PA.

JANE married Daniel D. HEVERLY, son of Daniel HEVERLY and MAGDALENE WILT, on 30 Jun 1850 in Overton, Bradford, PA. Daniel was born 25 Oct 1828 in Overton, Bradford, PA. He died 8 Sep 1918 in Overton, Bradford, Pa. and was buried 11 Sep 1918 in ST PAUL RFMD CEM, Overton, PA.

Daniel was a Civil War Soldier-Private, Co.F, 61st Regiment, 3rd Calvary, from September 27, 1864 to June 20, 1865. He was married by James Heverly, Esquire, in Overton, PA., June 30, 1850. They celebrated their 69TH wedding anniversary together before being separated by death. He owned a farm that had been handed down from his grandfather. It is now owned by "Skippy" Carner. His death certificate, file number 101321 lists cause of death as "Old Age", also uremic poison. His age at death was 89 yrs, 10 months, 13 days. Source: Bradford County Historical Society, Towanda, PA., card file on the Heverlys, as follows: Bradford Star dated June 21, 1900 lists the anniversary of Daniel & Jane Elizabeth Haverly Heverly on June 30th. (50th). Then the Bradford Star dated June 30, 1910 listed their 60th wedding anniversary. Bradford Star dated July 5, 1900 listed in detail their 50th anniversary, listing the parents of Daniel, Daniel & Magdaline Wilt Heverly, and the parents of Jane, Jacob & Mary Dunmore Haverly. They were married June 30, 1850. The Bradford Star dated July 1, 1915 listed their 65th wedding anniversary. The 1900 directory lists Daniel Heverly, r 15 1/2, 23 dairy cows, and farmer with 200 acres. The following is from his obituary in newspaper; "Daniel Heverly, a life-long resident and Overton's oldest citizen, died Sunday morning, Sep. 8, 1918, at 4 o'clock, after a week's painful illness of bladder difficulty and complications, aged 90 years. he was born Oct. 25, 1828, the son of Daniel and Magdalena (Wilt) Heverly. His grandfather, Daniel Heverly **, and sons were the first settlers of Overton, moving thereto in 1810. Here in the wilderness Mr. Heverly was born and grew to manhood, inured to all the hardships and privations incident to life in a new country. He was one of the builders of the town and his association with its history covered a longer period than that of any other person ever living in Overton. He was the last of the pioneers whose memory carried him back to the original settlement and his grandfather's family. He was a voter before Overton became a township and was one of the most helpful in its settlement and development. He opened the first store and public house in the township and for almost half a century his home was the center and rallying point of the settlers. Mr. Heverly was a man of many activities. He engaged successively as a farmer and lumberman, storekeeper, hotel proprietor, stockman and farmer and dairyman. At one time he owned eight different farms, which he bought and paid for. He retained the homestead where he was born and had always lived, the old mansion having sheltered six generations. He married June 30, 1850, Elizabeth Haverly, who has been his most faithful and devoted helpmate for more then 68 years, a union that has blessed to the fifth generation by a progeny numbering almost a hundred. During the Civil War, Mr. Heverly served as a member of Company F, 61st P.V. He was always greatly devoted to his old comrades, took an active interest in the Post, attended all the local soldier gatherings and many of the big soldier occasions of the State and Nation. He was not only attached to his country but enjoyed seeing it in its greatness and attended the Expositions and other notable gatherings.

 He took deep interest in local history and its preservation and was a member of the Bradford County Historical Society. He attended all the old people's meetings and at the last one, held in June, carried off the honors as the oldest gentleman and oldest soldier present. Mr. Heverly was a personage of splendid qualities, sterling integrity and honesty. In all things tending for the food or uplift of the community, he was a ready and liberal contributor.

For the poor and needy, he had an ever ready hand and no man, white or black, was ever turned away from his table or door. Of friendly nature, he enjoyed the companionship of comrades and friends. His fondness for children was supreme and possibly his greatest delight. He was ever mindful of the welfare of his family. As a worthy citizen, kind and obliging neighbor, he will not only be sadly missed by the family but by the community and wide circle of friends."

Sullivan Review dated 1894;

Mrs. Libbie HEVERLY, wife of Joseph HEVERLY, of this place, died Sunday evening, October 28, aged 26 years and two months. The funeral will be held today (Wednesday), the friends meeting at the house at 10 o'clock. The interment will be at Bahr's Hill. Deceased was of a peculiarly lovable disposition, and her death at this untimely age is sad in the extreme. But the dread disease, consumption, had laid its blighting finger upon her and the flower of youth and beauty faded at its touch. Much sympathy is expressed for the husband, who has been the tenderest and most patient of nurses, and who is now left with the care of a little daughter to face the world alone.

Heverly, who passed away Saturday morning at his home at No. 202 Miller Street from angina pectoris. Sayre loses one of its best known valued and highly esteemed citizens, and one who will be missed from church, civic, business and social activities of the community. His sudden death came as a distinct shock to the entire town. He had been about Sayre the day previous and appeared to be in his usual health. Saturday morning he planned to go to Waverly to participate in the Armistice Day parade and had been washing and polishing his automobile in preparation for the trip. He had been in the house talking to his wife and daughter for a few minutes and had gone out again to work on the car when a neighbor noticed that he had fallen to the ground. His daughter ran to him and found he was unconscious. Drs. H.S. Fish and J.M. Higgins were instantly summoned. They found that death had resulted from heart trouble. Mr. Heverly, son of Reuben and Elizabeth Heverly, was born at Dushore, PA., Feb. 22, 1863, and was 59 years of age. When a young man he learned the blacksmith trade and for a number of years worked at that business in Overton, Bradford County, PA. Later he went to New Albany, where he ran a grocery store for a time and then became a commercial traveler for the wholesale grocery firm of D.B. Stewart & Co., of Ithaca, NY Twenty years ago he became a resident of Sayre. For several years, he had been vice president of D.B. Stewart & Co. and his business took him over the greater part of Bradford county where he had an extensive acquaintance among the merchants and business men generally. His never failing courtesy, square dealing and tendency to always look out for and protect his customer gained him a large circle of loyal friends. He served one term as a member of the Sayre town council, representing the fourth ward. He belonged of the Masonic Lodge at Monroeton, PA., and was a member of Irem Temple, Order of the Mystic Shrine of Wilkes-Barre, and of Northern Commandery, Knights Templar, of Towanda. He was one of the most valued members of the Sayre Rotary Club, and was affiliated with United Commercial Travelers. Since residing in Sayre he had been active in the work of the Presbyterian Church and was a member of the Sessions, the highest honor that can come to a layman in that denomination, and taught a class in the Sunday School.

The Bradford Star, dated 23 March 1918. Another Soldier Boy Dead.

Severe, indeed, are the afflictions of Mrs. John A. Benjamin of Durell, who buried her husband on March 17 and received a message the first of the week, announcing the death of her son J. Wayne Benjamin at Camp Upton, L.I., March 24 after a short illness of pneumonia. Impelled by patriotic motives Mr. Benjamin who was working at the watchmaker's business at Erie, Pa. enlisted about two months ago and was sent to camp. Only a few weeks before he married and with his bride spent the holidays with his parents at Durell--little dreaming that such sad changes would take place in so short time. He was 34 years of age, a young man of much promise and most highly esteemed. Besides his wife and mother, two brothers and five sisters survive. The remains were brought to the Benjamin home at Durell where funeral services will be held this afternoon at 2 o'clock; interment in Liberty Corners cemetery.

Arvilla was widowed when she was 40 years old. George fell from the Third Ward School building in Towanda, where he was working, & died a few hours later. He had suffered a sun stroke. Mrs. Carner was left with 7 small children, the youngest being but 5 weeks old. It was with a hard struggle that she raised her family. She was a charter member of the Overton Grange. About 1917, she married Otis Richar & resided at 412 Stevenson Street, Sayre, Pa. She learned the Millinery trade early in life, which she worked at for a time. Later, she became a school teacher & taught several terms. She had 8 children, 2 boys & 6 girls. She is buried in Overton, Pa., in the Reformed Church Cemetery. She was a member of the Sayre Methodist Church. She is listed as Emma A. Heverly on Daniel's Civil War Pension Records. She is listed as a surviving sister in Clement F. Heverly's obituary notice in the Daily Reviewdated January 7, 1924, as Mrs. Arthur Richar.

 

ARVILLA married (1) George S. CARNER, son of Henry WELLES CARNER and HANNAH Ann COOLBAUGH, on 25 Mar 1886 in Overton, PA, PA. George was born 22 Sep 1862 in MACEDONIA, Bradford, PA. He died 1 Jul 1901 in Overton, Bradford, PA and was buried 3 Jul 1901 in ST PAUL REFORMED, Overton, PA.

George was a carpenter and a dairy farmer in Overton area. His father was a carpenter. The family surname was originally spelled "Karner" and is of Holland origin. George died from falling off the third ward school building in Towanda, Pa., where he was working as a carpenter. He had fainted from a sun stroke. Source of burial place: The History of Overton, by C.F. Heverly, published in 1910 page 136. Also, I visited this cemetery and confirmed his birth & death dates. His death is recorded in the "Register of Deaths" in the Bradford County Court House, Towanda, PA. The cupola (steeple) from the third ward school was removed when it was torn down after the new school was built in Towanda. This cupola is now in the back yard of George's Great-great grandson Gene Rockwell of Spring Lake, Asylum Township, Bradford County, PA. (son of Lyle Rockwell)

Also, the Bradford County Historical Society, Towanda, Pa., card file on Heverlys as follows: TheBradford Stardated Sept. 6, 1900 lists the birth of a daughter on Aug 29, 1900, to Russell Heverly of Overton. Another source: The Settler, dated Sep. 1995 has a article "My Heritage," written by Debra Slocum (Allen), R.D.# 1, Ulster, Pa., who wrote the article for the course "Basic Composition" while in SRU High School in 1975. As follows: Many years ago the parents of my Great Great Grandparents were the first settlers of Overton, Pa. Daniel and Elizabeth Heverly are my Great Great Grandparents. Daniel fought in the Civil War. He felt strongly against slavery. The parents of my grandmother were Russell and Nancy Heverly. Clement Heverly, my grandmother's uncle, wrote a book on the History of Bradford County. He also owned and published the "Bradford Star," for many years. It was a very important paper at the time. William and Lena Slocum of Lockwood, NY, were the parents of Evert Slocum, my grandfather. On Mar., 28, 1918, he married Annabelle Heverly. They moved to Ulster July 5, 1940, and bought a farm. They brought up their eight girls and four boys. This family was and still is a very proud family. The people out of this family were brought up to do things their selves and therefore, rely very little on someone else to do things for them. During the "Depression," my grandfather worked on the W.P.A. My Uncle Evert was a small boy during this time, and often he had seen the WPA resting on their shovels. One day he stood leaning on a shovel, when he was suppose to be working. Grandma asked him what he was doing, and he said with all the seriousness possible, "I'm a PA worker!" They worked hard and lived off their land. They raised their own animals and only raised the type which would be of use to them. My grandmother had the best chickens, which during those days even laid eggs in the winter. They always had beautiful gardens, vegetables and flowers. My grandfather was a very strong and skilled man. He would take an unwanted snake and crack it like a whip. This seemed to kill them in a second. I used to be afraid of him, especially when he yelled. I guess Elmer Slocum, my father, inherited his bad temper. When he gets mad, you better clear out or you're liable to get something you don't want. I'm not saying that my ancestors are the best people that ever lived, but to me they were strong and determined people.

Source: Obituary notice as follows; Mrs. Ina Epley, aged 51 years, 9 months, 9 days, passed away at the home of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Bronson, 32 Third St., Johnson City, NY, on Mother's Day evening, May 11, 1947. Funeral services were conducted on Wednesday May 14, at 2 p.m. at the M.E. Church, Sayre, PA. Rev. Pieplo, pastor of the church, assisted by Rev. E.C. Musselman of Wysox, an uncle of the family, officiated. The many beautiful floral offerings attributed to the love and esteem in which she was held. Burial was at Tioga Point Cemetery. Pallbearers were Glenn Hunsinger, Daniel and Lawrence Rinebold, George, Harry and Francis Carner, all nephews of the deceased. Mrs. Epley, who was a daughter of George and Arvilla Heverly Carner, was born at Overton, August 2, 1895. On Dec. 25, 1910 she was united in marriage to Curtis Epley, also of Overton. After residing in Overton for a short time, they moved to Sayre where Mr. Epley was employed by the Lehigh Valley R.R. To them were born a son, Robert of 108 Parsons Ave., Endicott, NY, and a daughter, Pauline, Mrs. Robert Bronson. Mrs. Epley's love for her home and family was infinite. She was a member of the Sayre M.E. Church and a teacher in the Sunday School. Following her husband's sudden death about ten years ago, she took up practical nursing and her quite, pleasing manner made her much in demand as a nurse. In 1942 she moved to Johnson City where she was employed in the IBM until last July when she submitted to a major operation followed by another operation in September. All that loving hands could do was done for her but God, in His infinite wisdom, saw fit to take her home where pain and sorrow are no more. Besides her son and daughter, she is survived by three grandchildren, Ronnie Bronson, Curtis and Tommy Epley; a brother, Lawrence Carner of Overton, and the following sisters: Mrs. Emma Stephens of Rummerfield, Mrs. Fred Lyon of Sidney, NY, Mrs. Glenn Steiner of Johnson City, and Mrs. T.L.

He also raised a variety of farm animals such as beef cattle, guinea hens, turkeys, sometimes including ringnecks and other wildlife to release into the wilds for hunting purposes. He had a variety of friends who hunted and fished with him.

I remember the time Larry took me, and my 2 sons fishing down Satterlee Hollow for native trout. We put a fresh 6 pack of beer in the culvert near the Monroeton Rod & Gun Club, so when we returned from fishing the creek from top to bottom, there would be some "Cool-Ones" waiting for us. We also was fishing one time through the ice under the Towanda bridge that crossed the river on Rte 6. We had a fire built up against the concrete abutment, and the concrete exploded because of the hot fire up against the real cold pier. Curly's pipe went flying across the ice and broke in half. The rest of us went scattering from the fear. No one got hurt, but we all remembered the experience, even though we didn't catch any fish that day. Larry died at age 56 yrs.(Graduated from Towanda High School, Towanda, Pa. 1952.)
