Generation No. 1

  1.  JOHN KILLAM7 KELLAM  (SAMUEL KILLAM6, JOHN KILLAM5, AUSTIN (AUGUSTINE) (KILHAM)4, HENRY (KILHAM)3, WILLIAM (KILHAM)2, UNKNOWN1 KILHAM) was born September 07, 1698 in Wenham, Massachusetts or Preston, New London, Connecticut, and died Bet. September 1753 - January 1754 in Preston, New London Co., Connecticut.  He married (1) SARAH ROSE May 17, 1718 in New London Co., Connecticut.  She was born Bet. 1698 - 1700 in Stonington, New London Co., Connecticut, and died December 05, 1729 in Preston, New London Co., Connecticut.  He married (2) ABIGAIL KIMBLE KIMBALL February 13, 1729/30 in Preston, New London, Connecticut, daughter of JOHN KIMBALL.  She was born October 11, 1709 in Watertown, Litchfield, CT, and died Bet. 1735 - 1737 in New London Co., Connecticut.  He married (3) HEPSIBAH UNKNOWN Abt. 1737 in New London Co., Connecticut.  She was born Bet. 1712 - 1715 in Connecticut, and died Aft. 1753 in Connecticut.

  Notes for JOHN KILLAM KELLAM:

John had appeared in Preston about 1718, when he bought land of Samuel Reynolds (Bk. 3-pg 125.)  He later made a mutual agreement to make a division of a tract of land "which lyes within the limits of a certain deed of sale which Samuel Reynolds late of Preston, gave to said John Killam"  John's will, written 9 Feb 1753, proved 1 Sept 1753 names wife: Hepsibah, sons, Zadock, Amasa, Jeptha, Nathan and John, daughters: Sarah, Abigail, Mercy, Hepsibah, and Olive Killam.  Probate recorded Norwich, Vol. I.  Witnesses:  Thomas Woodward, Joseph Bundy, Ebenezer Witter, appeared (in court) on 1 Sept 1753. The will was probated 1 Feb 1754:  to beloved wife, Hepsibah Killam (probably the town household). To son, Phineas Killam 20 S (around $5 at that time), to son, Zadock 20 S, to son Amasa, 20 S, to son Nathan Killam, east end of farm with dwelling house.  To son, Jeptha, all the rest of my farm, on the west end and with all buildings, 6 acres of woodland, and the other half of my farming tools, my riding horse, saddle and bridle and all my cyder barrels and casks.  To my son, John Killam, $900 to be paid to him at age 21 and my will is that my son John should go to a trade at age 16 years. To my daughter Sarah Rose, and my daughters Abigail, Mercy, Hepsibah, Olive, all the moveable estate. Perhaps the older sons received their portions as they left to establish their own homes.  There was some trouble over the estate and will, mentioned following.

  Jeptha, altho not the eldest son, seemed to have inherited the largest share of the estate. He didn't survive his father by long, unfortunately. (sss/fss)

  Inventory of John Killam, late of Preston, was taken/ dated 4 Feb 1762 (when son, John, was 16 years old).

  Probate Records, Vol. 12, May, 1766.  The petition of Benjamin Tracy and Olive Tracy his wife, Mercy Killam and Hepsibah Killam, all of  Preston, represented to this assembly that John Killam, late of Preston, deceased, by his will gave to his three said daughters certain estate of which they had not received full value.

  In October, 1766, a committee having been appointed and having submitted a report, the court decided  money must be paid back by the following persons who were also heirs of Jepthah Killum late of Preston, deceased. John Killam, Eliab Farnum and his wife, Abigail,  Robert Rose and his wife, Sarah.  (each of the mentioned heirs were directed to pay to the 3 "deprived daughters"  varying amounts of money.

  Notes for HEPSIBAH UNKNOWN:

Information on this came partly from Ricardo C. Hitchcock of Buhl, Idaho, in 1983.

  Hepsibah has been said, over the years, to have BEEN a Park(e)(s).  Yet no evidence surfaced despite long and hard looking, to determine anything about her.  In the past year,  due to area, timing, and proximity, perhaps she was a young-ish widow--of a Parke.  This is advanced as a plausible, workable theory only, NOT documented.

  Notes for ZADOCK KELLAM:

Zadock Killam appears among the names among the first of the settlers  of the Wallenpaupack Settlement, about 1774.  He was probably one of the older ones to pioneer the area.  It seems  3 of the sons came with him, while other members of the family, including his wife, arrived a bit later on.  This happened among a number of the men, makes sense, the area was uncleared, there were no houses yet.  Records show he settled on Lot # 6,  the time span being when the lands were surveyed for Moses Killam, Sr., youngest of the sons who settled there.  When Ephraim Killam wrote his manuscript,  he noted he "could well remember when the old log house was standing upon this lot.  It stood a little north from the house "now occupied by George N. Killam, and where he "now has his garden."  "At the time we remember it, it was used for cooking feed for the hogs, and as a kind of work shop.  It was built about 10 ft. high to where the rafters rested.  The poles supporting the upper or chamber floor, being about two and a half feet lower down, a hall extended from side to side through it and on either side of this hall were rooms.  The attic served for a sleeping room for the older children and work hands.  The fire place was large with stone walls built up for the jambs and the pots, kettles used for cooking were suspended on trammels supported on what was called the lugpole.  In this house was a fireplace and chimney in each end of the house, the western half  being used as the kitchen or room in which the cooking was done and where the family ate their meals.  We think this old house was not taken down until about 1826 or 1827, and we remember one of the men engaged in the work was seriously hurt by falling  from the building.  We already mentioned the fact Zadock Killam and three of his sons, the names of these being Ephraim, Silas and Moses, and a daughter, Elizabeth.""  

"The settlers for the most part left the Settlement in 1778, returning in 1783.  Elizabeth was not with them.  Zadock lived with his son, Moses for some years after the return, but at the time of his death had been staying with his son, Silas Killam, having been with this son for a few years.""  (direct quotes from the Ephraim Killam Ms  pgs. 217-218)

  Zadoc was one of the first farmers near the Wallenpaupack Fort.  He is buried in the old Paupack Cemetery, Pike Co. Pennsylvania, with a  plaque is on a pine tree. He is listed as "Sadoc Killem" on the 1790 Federal Census, Wallenpaupack Settlement.

  "" Ruth Ensign md (2) about 1783-- SILAS KILLAM, b. 1757, probably Stonington, Conn., died 8 May 1818, age 61, Paupack Cemetery;  (Stover: " Ancestors and Descendants of Timothy Kellam"  priv. pub. 1981-1982)

  From Jim Bedwell quoting from "Ancestors and Descendants of Timothy Kellam",( Sheila Spencer Stover - 1981) ) the author quotes from John Killam's will, probated Feb 1, 1754 and lists the following sons: Phineas, Zadoc, Amasa, Nathan, Jeptha, and John.  Daughters are not listed by name.

  Zadoc's estate papers are filed in Pike Co., need a good going over, as do his land transactions.  It's unclear, whether it is meant he had sons who went west, or grandsons.  Several of his children, grandchildren, disappear from view prior to or shortly after, the migration into NY and PA.

  6.  JEPTHA8 KELLAM (JOHN KILLAM7, SAMUEL KILLAM6, JOHN KILLAM5, AUSTIN (AUGUSTINE) (KILHAM)4, HENRY (KILHAM)3, WILLIAM (KILHAM)2, UNKNOWN1 KILHAM) was born October 23, 1733 in Preston,  Connecticut, and died 1759 in Preston, Connecticut.  He married PHEBE PARKS October 24, 1754 in Preston, Connecticut, daughter of ROBERT PARKS and DOROTHY BACON.  She was born June 25, 1736 in Voluntown , New London Co.,  Connecticut, and died Abt. 1774 in New London Co., Connecticut.

  Notes for JEPTHA KELLAM:

Jeptha  inherited his farm, land, and money from his father, making him one of the wealthiest men in Preston.  On 16 June 1755, his brother, Nathan Killam, quit claimed all right to the tract of land left him under the same will to Jeptha, described as "lying in a bog meadow to ye west of the house where Jepthah now lives,about 5 acres."  (Land records 7-22)  

Evidently  Jepthah died suddenly, because he died without a will.  His wife, Phebe, and Eliab Farnum, were appointed administrators of his estate.  On 12 October of that year, the administrators applied to the courts for permission to sell part of the lands of the estate.  It was sold to the highest bidder, which was Nathan Killam.

  They also sold, to Ensign Silas Parke,  seven acres one half and twenty five rods.  The bonds mentioned give Silas Parke as owner of adjoining lands, and on the same date, land was sold to Elijah Witter of 13 1/2 acres and twenty rods, bounded by Joseph Witters land, and Jacob Kimball's land.  The co-administrators had begun selling off Jeptha's land May of 1759, as the Colonial Records stated they were allowed, at that time, to sell enough land to raise 112 pounds, in order to pay debts and have living expenses.

  Records show   "Upon the memorial of Eliab Farnum and Phebe Geer, late Phebe Killam, administrators on the estate of Jepthah,  late of Preston, deceased, asking permission to sell part of the real estate.....permission granted."

        Child of ESTHER KELLAM and OZIAS BUDDINGTON is:

27.              i.       BELINDA GATES10 BUDDINGTON.

  11.  PHINEAS9 KELLAM (ZADOCK8, JOHN KILLAM7, SAMUEL KILLAM6, JOHN KILLAM5, AUSTIN (AUGUSTINE) (KILHAM)4, HENRY (KILHAM)3, WILLIAM (KILHAM)2, UNKNOWN1 KILHAM) was born Abt. 1745 in Connecticut/Pennsylvlania, and died Bet. 1803 - 1805 in ?Monongalia Co., Va (Now W.Va).  He married UNKNOWN (???) INDIAN Bet. 1762 - 1765.  She was born Bet. 1744 - 1745 in Pennsylvania or Virginia/West Virginia.

  Notes for PHINEAS KELLAM:

Patented land for 280 acres in Morgan Township, Greene Co., Pennsylvania--called "Sugar Tree".  Surveyed 1784.

  Phineas lived in Western Pennsylvania near a place then called Kellam's Settlement. Left his land in West Virginia, (then Virginia) to "Heir at law" Asa Kellam of Hardin, Kentucky.  This area of West VA and PA is between Morgantown, West  VA and Pittsburgh, PA now.  Earl Core's history, "The Monongalia Story", Vol. III, pg. 29, mentions Indians attacking the Kellam settlement on the Kellam Fork of Dunkard's Creek, in 1786, killing and capturing some of the settlers, burning their cabins. Mr. Core's source was given as Lynn Hastings "School and Local History, Batelle" pg. 106.   Dan L. Tennant and Grace H. Youst, teachers, in 1922, are the names on the leaflet about the Battelle School Dist., Monongalia Co.

"Wana"  is the name given the community taken from the "kindly old Delaware Indian chief" who formerly traversed Dunkard Creek, was well known , fairly treated by the early settlers. This entire region was Indian land, primarily settled by the Delaware, who at this time, were acting as Peacekeepers for the  Iroquois Confederacy.  The land was turned over to the  white man, having been "bought" under the Treaty of Fort Stanwyx (now Rome, NY) by the English.

  Artifacts were easily turned up in the  mid to late 1700s--it was the site of an encampment, an Indian cemetery, and a "sacred circle" within which the Green Corn Dance,  other seasonal ceremonies, prayers  would have been performed. Contrary to what was written by the teachers of 1922--- the "stake" they professed to have seen in evidence was NOT used to burn white victims on.  (that's pretty much Hollywood stereotyping)

  Phineas Kellam was thought to be the second white settler of the area, taking into his name some 400 acres. The originals were written on sheepskin-- signed by Patrick Henry--then governor of Virginia.

An Indian raid did take place, brief, the Doddridge family was reputed to be slain in their house.  One of their sons escaped,  Phineas Killum attempted to divert attention, but, as the few Indians involved retreated, they  grabbed the boy, Willie, who was hiding under a rock--taking  him with them.  Some years later, in 1793-1794- he was exchanged back, but being raised with the Indians, had no desire to live/act as his "white" neighbors,  so " they could not rid him of the Indian Ways of Life."   The 1922 write up mentions Phineas took the smaller boy who had escaped--but he  isn't mentioned any further.

  This is the only incident known to have happened in this particular settlement, otherwise life was hard, but peaceful.

  In describing the usage of furs, skins, etc., for the home furnishings--rather than the  usual home made quilts, more "standard" items, it is necessary to realize, these  pioneer families had long been intermarrying with Indians,  male and female.  White women were at a premium on the frontier.  Indian and white settlements often lived in peaceful, helpful, proximity, with one another, especially on the farther borders of the Frontier.

  Phineas' wife is not mentioned--yet such specifics as what land was where-- what bridge did what, how much was tilled, what was built, are lengthy.  Other families are mentioned in some detail.  No wife signed off on her dower, no name is mentioned in connection with the land, the work, or the settlement.  It is highly probable, Phineas wife was either Native, or of enough  mixed blood, her being included-- with rights-- would not have been allowed.  As much for her  protection as any reasons of prejudice.

  Phineas patented land for 280 acres in Morgan Township, Greene Co., Pennsylvania --called "Sugar Tree".  Surveyed 1784.

  11 Feb 1799 - Phineas Killums already owned land, it being mentioned as bordering land of Philip Scritchfield, John Scritchfield, Arthur Scritchfield, Henry Scritchfield, Nathaniel Hull.  This entry mentions the land was  surveyed by Phineas Killums, assignee of Christian Cofman,

  23 Sept 1799-heirs of Arthur Critchfield to William John 396 acres at the mouth of Three Lick Run on Dunkard Creek, adjoining Phinehas Killam and Daniel Barton, originally patented to Christopher Rever assignee of Ralph Hunt, assignee of Asa Killam.

  Phineas was alive 8 March 1802,  he again being mentioned in conjunction with his land and it's borders.--the entries are on pages 158-159 of Monongalia West Va  Deed Book Records, 1784-1810 (Old Series Vol. 1-4) by Rick Toothman.

  Deed in Monogehela County , West  Va. states the property was to go to heir in law Asa Kellum of Hardin County, Ky.  Original property belonged to Phineas. See info from Jim Bedwell.  Spelling in deed is Kellum, altho again, it is spelled various ways.

  To give an idea of area, and paths of migration, settlement, this excerpt from "State Book of Pennsylvania" by Thomas H. Burrows (originally . pub. 1846) may be helpful.  He writes  "after the close of Pontiac's War in 1763, pioneers from the settlements of Cumberland Valley and Bedford.....established themselves within the present boundaries of Washington Co.; chiefly along the Monongahela."

  Phineas shows up  in (now)  Monongalia area---circa 1769 (his son, Asa, would have been quite young?)  Washington Co. was formed from Cumberland in 1781.  Westmoreland Co. was formed from Bedford Co. in 1773--and Bedford had been taken off Cumberland in 1771.  As is easily seen, Phineas could have been on the outer reaches of the territory of his father, Zadock---and, with changing  county boundaries, actually not have moved much at all.  

Please  keep in mind, West Virginia wasn't formed until 1861--- the territory we are dealing with was, in the time frame mentioned, STILL Virginia----which extended into what is now central Ohio-- hearing  these Kellams may have come from "Virginia" doesn't indicate at all we mean the Eastern Shore--home to an entire Kellam group not tied to these by any known cords.  

Another point of interest:  Phineas probably had more children, unknown at this point. The existence of at least two brothers has been raised by one Joe "Blue Sky" Johnson, a Shoshone-Bannock  (via his Mother, Shawnee/Wyandot via his father)  Indian client for whom I did work a few years back.  In discussing upper Kentucky, lower Ohio, tribes, traveling with explorers (he descends from Sacajawea's clan of Rogers and Clark fame) we were talking about other expeditions, how necessary the Indians were to anyone tromping through their territory--my mention of the Kellam's having a long affinity for marrying Native/Native mix, gave rise to  the oral history of Killen/Killeen brothers who came from the east--the mountains-- were with a white expedition on the Ohio, in Shawnee Territory.  Their Mother was an Indain, they "knew their way around, could speak  to the Natives--- two married into the tribes, the other settled in Simon Girty's  old territory-- which would be--- upper Kentucky.

  The Shawnee were all over Hardin/ Breckinridge,etc-- -Ohio/Indiana was their land base until all the take overs-- Tecumseh-- -( killed in the War of 1812---)  adopted / blood  brother, Bluejacket, a red haired, blue eyed (supposed) white man---original name Swearingen, and  he was from -- - Monongalia Co., WV.   This is an oral story,  worth researching further.  (remember;  I didn't know any of  the Asa group existed  when this letter writing was going on--and I wasn't interested back then-- in much past the Pennsylvania borders.)    You can see the plot thickening as we dig (and dig) !!

  Source for Monongalia lore came from the papers and letters of Jim Bedwell,  Greenwood, Indiana sent to to Orie Kelm.--Jim a Kellam desc., perhaps of James who died in Clay Co.

  Feb. 2002 addition:    For  Greene County, Pennsylvania researchers.

Greene County, Pennsylvania was named for Nathaniel Greene on Feb. 9, 1796. The county was born when John MINOR sponsored a bill in which legislated that this southern portion of Washington County, Pennsylvania become a separate county. Waynesburg, the county seat is named after General "MAD" Anthony Wayne who led the army in 1784 to defeat the Indians in the Northwest territory, what today is the Ohio Valley. Greene County, Pennsylvania is located in the southwestern corner of the state of Pennsylvania. It's bordered by the counties of Washington to the north, Fayette to the east, Monongalia County, West Virginia to the south and Marshall County, West Virginia to the west. At one time, Greene County was part of Mononghela County, Virginia. This part of the state was once disputed with Virginia in 1800. Greene County was also known as part of the Ohio Company area very early. For research purposes prior to 1800 look in Washington County, Pennsylvania and Monongalia County, West Virginia and Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.

Notes for UNKNOWN (???) INDIAN:

Several desc. feel  her first name was Sarah-- common, possible, there were other Sarah's tied to family members, nothing has shown up to confirm this--or dispute it.

        Child of PHINEAS KELLAM and UNKNOWN INDIAN is:

28.              i. ASA10 KELLAM, b. Bet. 1762 - 1765, Pennsylvania; d. 1831, Hardin Co., Kentucky.

  12.  EPHRAIM9 KELLAM (ZADOCK8, JOHN KILLAM7, SAMUEL KILLAM6, JOHN KILLAM5, AUSTIN (AUGUSTINE) (KILHAM)4, HENRY (KILHAM)3, WILLIAM (KILHAM)2, UNKNOWN1 KILHAM) was born July 07, 1751 in Stonington, New London, Connecticut, and died December 02, 1836 in Paupeck, Pike Co., Pennsylvania.  He married (1) LUCY BUNDY Abt. 1773, daughter of SIMEON BUNDY and EUNICE MEECH.  She was born Bet. 1753 - 1755.  He married (2) ABIGAIL BUNDY 1785 in Palmyra, Pike Co., Pennsylvania.  She was born October 20, 1750 in Connecticut or Pennsylvania, and died Bet. 1831 - 1836 in Scottsville, New York, at home of son, Charles.

  Notes for EPHRAIM KELLAM:

The lot surveyed for Ephraim was # 8.  In conjunction with John Pellett, jr.,  an improvement on Lot # 12 was made, being surveyed in both names. They divided this lot, and Ephraim cleared a small field of about 4 acres, which some  years later was covered with  good growth of "sap" pine 10 to 20 in. around, some as tall as 100 ft.  When his son, Ira died young, Ephraim willed his property to Powell and Charles, the two (living) sons of Ira.  His signature was barely legible, altho speculation by Edith Kellam Brown's notes was he couldn't write, the age /disease that killed him (he died of cancer---EK manuscript) is more likely responsible.

  He served in the Revolution, drew a pension.     

  Name in records spelled as Killam.  Probably the Ephraim Killum next door to "Sadoc" - 1790 federal census, Wallenpaupack Settlement. Buried Pike Co., PA.  Ref:  "Cemeteries, Graveyards and Burying Grounds, Pike County, PA" by Victoria Fields, Vol. 1, pg. 55.

   13.  MOSES SR.9 KELLAM (ZADOCK8, JOHN KILLAM7, SAMUEL KILLAM6, JOHN KILLAM5, AUSTIN (AUGUSTINE) (KILHAM)4, HENRY (KILHAM)3, WILLIAM (KILHAM)2, UNKNOWN1 KILHAM) was born Bet. 1755 - 1759 in Preston, New London Co., Connecticut, and died May 15, 1831 in Pike Co., Pennsylvania-Bur. Old Paupack Cem..  He married MARY (POLLY) KING December 20, 1779 in Goshen, Orange Co., New York.  She was born Bet. 1757 - 1759, and died May 13, 1816 in Pike Co., Pennsylvania---Bur. Old Paupack Cem..  

Notes for MOSES SR. KELLAM:

As a young man, Moses resided in Goshen, NY. before moving back into the Wallenpaupack Settlement.  There he was active, becoming well known in business, political circles.  He served for some years as the Justice of the Peace, later taken on by his son, Moses.  Until the organization of Pike Co., (1814) he was a time agent under Coldwater of Philadelphia for the sale of the unsettled portions of the manor of W-P as seen from the recital of deeds on his return to W-P.  In 1783 he took charge of the business, where lands were surveyed 1805, lot # 6 was surveyed for him. He built a saw and grist mill on the Mill Brook.

   Moses was a Revolutionary Soldier, fighting with the Orange Co., Militia, taking part in  (among others) the Battle of Lackawaxen/Minisink, 22 July 1779, when he was 20 yrs. old.   He blamed the Officers for forcing the men into unequal contest  with Brant's forces, which consisted of 400-500 Indians and Tories.  Moses was slightly wounded.  His pension was used for DAR membership, original application # 102701. He's buried in Old  Paupack Cemetery, tombstone says he was 72.

   Sources:       "Minors History of Wyoming", p. 774.  Wyoming has reference to the Wyoming Valley of NE Pa which was claimed by Connecticut at one time. Census, 1830, Kellem, Moses  County/State: Pike Co., PA Palmyra Twp  Page #: 023

  Notes for MARY (POLLY) KING:

Mary's (Polly) tombstone reads she was 69 years old when she died, putting her age at the time of her marriage abt 32, rather late.  The family descendant records give her year of birth as between 1755-1759, which seems more reasonable.

  Notes for JEPTHA KELLAM:

Jeptha left Preston, probably moving to Pike Co., Pennsylvania about 1772, when his cousins, Zadock Killam, with  his wife, Hannah, their sons, Moses Killam, Ephraim Killam and Silas Killam moved there from Connecticut.  The families remained at Paupeck until the Revolutionary activities of July 1776 at Wyoming forced them to  consider moving to Orange Co., New York, living in the   Minisink Valley prior to settling there until the war was over. (1783)  Alfred Mathews "History of Wayne, Pike and Monroe Counties, Pennsylvania" (1886), pg. 948..."In the spring of 1779 five young men went back to the settlement to make maple sugar; Ephraim Killam, Jeptha Killam, Silas Killam..." during which visit they were attacked by Indians,  Ephraim was wounded in the arm.  

A tax list for Lackaway, Westmoreland District  (of Connecticut) which included the land now in Pike County, Pennsylvania, in 1778 lists Zadock Killam, Moses Killam, Ephraim Killam, Jeptha Killam and John Killam. Records of Jeptha's family are found in the Minisink-Machackemeck Dutch Reformed Church from 1786 to 1792.  Census records indicate several of the early children were actually born in New Jersey.

                traveling from the State of New York and New Jersey, where the

                small-pox was and is extremely prevalent, and thereby said

                town of Westmoreland.............................."

                      (pg. 60...Public Records of Connecticut, 1776-1780  Vol. II)

  Jeptha was a farmer, owning a large tract of land,  He was  very involved with the establishment of rafting on the Delaware River.  After Jeptha's death in 1804  his wife, Mary,  and Seth Wickham were appointed administrators of his estate. The sale of property and goods indicated Jeptha was a substantial  man for his time.  Mary was alive in 1810, according to the census of that year, then disappears.  No graves have been located for either of them. They may have been buried where the Wallenpaupack flooded.  It's more likely they were buried on their own property.

  Notes for MARY LOTT:

Mary Lott was Indian.  She, her family, as was often the custom, were baptized in the Dutch Reform Church, given names of their sponsors, or their sponsors families. This makes it difficult to separate the actual European individuals from the Native People who were baptized in the Church.

  Lyman Draper papers, held by  Wisconsin Historical Society, and published in part by Heritage Press, Bowie, Md, state, " prior to the Revolution, some 222 Cherokee, Shawnee, were pushed backwards from Ohio, settling on the banks of the Delaware near where Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York now join".  This would have been near the town of Port Jervis, an active stopping place on the river. Draper further wrote  "These Indians mingled with the settlers of that area, being kindly treated and encouraged to be taken into the churches of their neighbors."

  With both Delaware and Susquehannocks already in the area, and a small intermingling of  Mohawk--always highly mobile-- along with the Tuscarora on their way back  Northward--it would be difficult to state which tribe the baptized Lott family came from. The Lott surname (originally Dutch) fairly well researched, obviously entered the family, either by baptism, or thru intermarriage.  It appears among the Shawnee, the Cherokee old rolls early 1800s.

  One Lott descendant stated his Lott family, which was in Pike Co., were said to have ties to the Seminole-- this connection would have had to be later than the last quarter of the 1700s. The Lott's will be taken up in more detail in Vol. II or III.  

Mary disappears after the 1810 Pennsylvania census. She could have remarried,  gone to live with one of the children.  She was about 45 years of age at this time---young for any one in this family to die.

  Notes for LEBBEUS KILLUM KELLAM:

From the Manuscript of Ephraim Kellum, written between 1850 and 1888 when he died.   Copied ver batim from the typed copy in the possession of Sheila S. Stover, a gift  of Karen Stanton.  

""Lebbeus Killam son of John and Sally Killam married Sophie Ansley, daughter of Simeon and Sarah Ansley.  We know very little as to the children of this family, have heard that their oldest son was about ten years old when they moved from the Settlement and settled in Canada.  His name was Jason.

  They lived upon Lot # 4, settled first by his father, John.

  It was noted by his neighbors that he was financially prosperous, even above his industrious habits, and they were at a loss to account for his financial success.  He left for Canada under circumstances

 very discreditable to himself, and very surprising to his neighbors who had always looked upon him as above suspicion.  His prosperity however in a worldy manner proved afterward to be at the expense of several of his neighbors.  His departure from the Settlement was sudden and unexpected to his neighbors, and they could scarcely realize the fact their losses could be charged to his gain, and this was carried on for years without the neighbors suspecting anything was wrong with this man, such was their confidence in his integrity.

  When anything was discovered to be wrong he was always equal to the emergency and was able to explain everything to the satisfaction of his neighbors, sometimes seeing strange men in the neighborhood on such occasions, when afterward it was learned such men were at other places at the same time, one place in particular when the family were all gone from the house and one hundred dollars was taken out, he saw a certain individual leave the house and make for the woods.  And yet that same individual was in the State of Connecticut at the same time as was soon learned.  But, he (Lebbeus) became too bold in his ventures resulting in his being caught.  His brother-in-law stood by him and saved him from the disgrace of being incarcerated in the State Prison.  

Lebbeus visited the Settlement only one time after he took his family and settled in Canada.  But did not stay long visiting only his sister whose husband had aided him in his time of greatest need.  After he settled in Canada he mended his ways and was said to become a different man.  He gained deserved respect from the people among when he settled, his family were very much respected, and we have learned  of his descendants now living they are much respected and stand well in the community in which they live.

  During the time he lived in the Wallenpaupack Settlement but one person suspected anything wrong in this man, this was the wife of one of his cousins, and on her mentioning to her husband her suspicions, he told her he did not want to hear her speak of that again, he could not belive this man would do such a thing, yet this same cousin had lost eighty dollars under such circumstances.  it seems strange he did not see this man in the same light in which his wife saw him,.  This propensity seemed inherent in this man, and belonged to him only.  The rest of the family were above reproach, proving such to be the fact by a life free from suspicion."""  

(entries in Court Minutes confirm the surface of this story.  By selling his land to the family,  acceptable restitution was arranged, he was allowed to leave without a public hearing)

  Appears on  the 1851 Townsend Twnp., Norfolk Co., Ontario census. Lebbeus served in the military, 2nd Regiment, Norfolk Militia.  The Nominal list of transfers from the First to the Second  (Reserve Battalion) between 24 Dec. 1830 and 24 June 1831.  :Kellum, Libbeus dated 4 Jun 1831 co. or Reserve First (Men of Upper Canada Militia Nominal rolls, 1826-1829)  This information from descendant John Kellum, email : kellum_17@breathemail.net.1869 (Norfolk Co):

  Notes for ASA KELLAM:

For the lines down from Asa, I owe an enormous debt of gratitude to Ron Kellems, Orie Kelm, Jr., Pat Bruner, Georgia Scott Crawley. Peripherally to Beth Moore and Jim Bedwell, whose research appeared in information sent me.  Without their generosity, enthusiasm, sharing, encouragement, support, there is no way this line could have come together.  The packets of information sent to be included  pushed the  printing back by a few months--I felt there was no way  in good conscience, it could go to press without all of it entered/placed, to the best of our collective abilities.  

Merging of material by GEDCOM ended up being problematical, caused glitches.  Orie and Ron had at proofing for me, trying to catch the errors, duplicates, make a few suggestions on text-- etc.  Easter Holiday weekend (2001), no less.  

Even though further work is needed to elaborate on Zadoc and Phineas, the data available, the migration pattern, indicate this line is correct as entered.  Should there be  proof, disproof, more information, it's welcome--- please contact:  RonsHoms@aol.com,  rausch02@swbell.net , patbruner@psci.net, okelm@chartertn.net,  jmlem@psci.net, Corliss1028@aol.com, ncrawley@juno.com - all part of this Kellems group "network."

  We're not sure of place of death and burial--also the surname is spelled differently everywhere you look : Kellam, Kelm, Calm, Callum,  Kellem, Kellum, Kellems.  

Listed in Nelson Co., Virginia, 1787 Tax List "C", taken by Philip Phillips, Esq. on 23

April 1787.  

  ""Asey Kellam  0 0 0 3 0    21-50 yrs and 1 other wm 21-50"

  Next door is a blank name, but the taxes were charged to and paid by Asey Kellam,

all zeros, listed as   "1 other wm 21-50"     Nelson Co. is now Kentucky, borders on Hardin Co.

  Per letter dated 9/9/41 from Jesse Randolph Kellems to OLK Sr. :  " Asa died in Breckenridge Co. about 1827-1828.  He also said  Asa Kellam (Kelm) was the Father of Andrew Jackson Kelm,  Asa married Eleanor Hinch Nelson County, Ky., 1783 (was 1788)"  verifying info given below:

  Marriage records show  Asa Married Eleanor Hinch in Nelson County, Ky. Asa homesteaded land in LaRue County after he married Eleanor in 1788. He received a land grant under land warrant # 464 for 300 Acres--on March 4, 1816 received title. This land had one corner 5 poles from the Nolin Creek north bank, was about 1 mile from the Lincoln Homestead in Ky.  Asa served on juries with Thomas Lincoln in Elizabethtown, Ky., per the Mather papers on file in the Filson Club, Louisville, Ky.

  The 1880 Census for A. J. Kelm said his father (ASA) was born in Pa. (per Jesse Randolph Kellem) See also info from Beth Moore.  

8 Sept. 1800- mention is made of the land owned by Asa Kellam, consideration of 100 pounds, Virginia money.  Individual: Kelm, Asa County/State: Breckinridge Co., KY  Page #: 451   Year: 1840

  Asa was deeded land by his father, Phineas:  "Asa Killam of Hardin Co., KY, heir at law."  This land was in Monongalia Co., VA, now West Virginia, on the Indian Creek Branch of Dunkard Creek.  Old maps show a "Killam Landing" in southwest Pennsylvania, with accompanying records of a Phineas Killam in the same area, same time frame.    Asa Kellam is listed as Inventory Appraiser of Nicholas Brashear, 5 October 1803, Hardin Co., Kentucky.  He had witnessed the will of Christopher Miller on 13 Sept. 1800.  

Orie Kelm sent the following references  early May 2001:

  There is reference to  what appears to be  Asa as a member of the George Rogers Clark expedition down the Ohio to the Mississippi in 1778--- interesting.

  Asa's ownership of land in the WV area was not limited to the land he appears to have inherited from Phineas and where  the father/son relationship established.  He was actively engaged in land ownership on his own.  ownership of the land described in Deed OS2:214. may have further information.

  Killan, Asa 6-1174 :  This reference found in a listing of personnel with George Rogers Clark in 1778, based on microfilm records in the  Virginia State Library.

The spelling of Killan may be a transcription error, reading "n" instead of the

"m", from the Microfilm record. (ref: URL:http://www.execpc.com/~sril/clark.html)

  Monongalia County (WV) deed OS2:214 transfers 325a from heirs of Authur Critchfield to William John, dated 9/23/1799.   Deed includes the statement:  "...assignee of Ralph Hunt, who was assignee of Asa Killam...".  Land was located on 3 Lick Branch of Dunkers Creek.  This indicates  Asa once owned this land in WV.  Asa was living on Nolin Creek (Ky) by 1788 when he was married to Eleanor Hinch.  He could have owned the WV land prior to 1788.

  Monongalia County (WV) deed OS2:209 transfers 200a from Samuel to Richard Cain dated 9/8/1800. Deed includes statement "..On the right hand fork of Dunkert Creek adjoining lands of Asa Kellum..."

  Monongalia County (WV) deed OS3:206 transfers 100a. from Asa Kellum to Peter Myers and Elias Flanagen, both of the Green County in the State of Pa on 6/11/1805. Property lying on the Head of Indian Run, a branch of Dunkard Creek.   This is the same tract of land "..which was granted by patent from the Commonwealth of Virginia to said Asa Kellum, heir at law to Phineas Killum, dec., & in whose name the entry and survey of said land was made, as may appeare by the office of the surveyor of Monongalia County where the Entry and survey aforesaid are recorded on which a grant has issued to the said Asa Kellum..."  This indicates (again) Asa is probably the son of Phineas and that Phineas was definitely deceased by 1805.

  Further Source/Credit:  Letter from Ron Kellems, Indiana:

  1. Pat Bruner ..................sent all I have except the desc. of Isaac Riley K.  Pat probably has more on this now. Actually received this from Mildred Kellems Graves  is mostly Pat's work product..

  2.Orie L. Kelm Jr..... ........his file on desc. of Phineas with some source detail and also his file on desc. of  Samuel Kelm who is Orie's GGgrandfather.

  3. Wayne Stapleton file... was doing a lot of research but dropped out of sight. This is re:  Asa and sons and has a lot of land record info but some detail is missing.

  "I think I have already sent my CLKellems/MLAnderson desc. file. Do have more now on their son Charles W. Kellems if you want it. We had lost track of this branch over 75 years ago- am pleased to have found them.

  I would like to verify whether Isaac Kellems was in fact a son of ASA . The question about Andrew Jackson Kellems was cleared up by his recorded census comment  "his father ASA" was born in PA.  Sounds pretty conclusive.

  Primary interest now shifts  to finding details on  PHINEAS, the deeding his land in VA / WV to "ASA KILLAM of Hardin Co, KY".    Am personally willing to accept....""

  1.Our ASA  was this PHINEAS' son

  2.The major portion of what I sent you, which came from Pat, Orie, and Wayne, is  accurate enough for me to concentrate on PHINEAS. (abstracted email from Ron K.)

Notes for ELEANOR HINCH:

Per Jesse Randolph Kellems- wife was Eleanor Hinch married in 1783 (actual date was 1788) . May have had two wives with Eleanor being second.  If this is true, it would appear Asa wasn't married long the first time---he was only abt 23 when he married Eleanor---unless the age of Asa is off.  Source for info on the un-named daughters is Beth Moore.

        Children of ASA KELLAM and ELEANOR HINCH are:

                   i. ISAAC KELM11 KELLEMS, b. Bet. 1797 - 1804, Hardin Co.,  Kentucky; d. Perry Co, Indiana--bur Kellems Cem., Clark Twnp; m. RHODA DODSON, February 25, 1832, Perry Co., Indiana; b. Abt. 1812.

  Notes for ISAAC KELM KELLEMS:

This Isaac is not proven, may not belong here, most of the descendants records have him listed.

                    ii.       CHARLES ISAAC KELLEMS, b. Abt. 1798, Hardin Co.,  Kentucky; d. Abt. 1845, Kentucky; m. (1) PHOEBE HINCH, April 18, 1821, Hardin Co, Kentucky; b. Bet. 1800 - 1810; d. 1831, Probably Breckinridge Co., Kentucky; m. (2) ELIZABETH LEFTRIDGE, 1832, Hardin Co., Kentucky; b. Abt. 1803, Virginia; d. August 04, 1882, Perry Co., Indiana.

  Notes for CHARLES ISAAC KELLEMS:

Record reads "Killiam".

  Notes for PHOEBE HINCH:

Marriage performed  by Thomas J. Chelton;  ages certified by Jas. Duffert, from Hardin Co. Marriages P. 28.  I have copy of marriage license, it was signed Charles Killiam, but in the body it is spelled Kellam.  (olk, Jr.)  Information and dates also  from Ron Kellems.

  Notes for ELIZABETH LEFTRIDGE:

Moved to Perry Co., Indiana by 1846.  Signed up for Charles pension, bounty land.  Son, Charles,  was a witness as  who she was.

  Sometimes seen as "Lethridge", other variants.  Elizabeth is buried Harding Cem., Perry Co., In.

                   iii.       SAMUEL KELM KELLAM, b. February 27, 1800, Kentucky; d. September 29, 1856, Melrose, Clark Co, Illinois; m. (1) MARY HUDDLESTON, February 17, 1819, Hardin Co., Kentucky; b. Bet. 1800 - 1807; d. 1835, Kentucky; m. (2) LOUISA BRIGHT, Bet. 1836 - 1837; b. 1815; d. February 26, 1876, Melrose, Clark Co, Illinois.

  Notes for SAMUEL KELM KELLAM:

Census of  1850 (Micro roll #100-National  Arch) shows Samuel to be age 50, Farmer and born in Ky.  Census of 1860 (Micro Roll, #162-National Arch) shows family with wife Louisa only, no Samuel.  Presumably he  died before 1860.

  Samuel's headstone is in the Medsker Cemetery, Melrose, Ill. Date of death was 9/29/1856 and the stone said his age was 56 years, 7 months, and 31 days.  This appears to make his birth 2/27/1800.  Orie Kelm, Jr. took video  pictures of the stone and cemetery. He also located his estate settlement (died intestate) papers in the Marshall Court House.  

All indications are  Samuel had two wives.  Samuel's first son Ralph was a half brother to Jonathan and his birth date precedes Samuel's marriage to Louisa Bright.  There is also indication Samuel's first wife was Mary Huddleston, md.  2/17/1819   Hardin Co.,Ky. (Info from Beth Moore) However, info from Debbie Jackson said Maggie told her that her (Maggie's) Grandparents were Samuel and Melissa Hutchinson.

   "History of Perry County Indiana" says Samuel served in the War of 1812, Captain Samuel Connor's Company, Colonel Ephraim Jordan's Regiment (enlistment from Perry County and across the river in Ky.   Research on going to prove exactly which Samuel this is.

  Notes for MARY HUDDLESTON:

"I have a copy of the marriage bond and license.  The name is spelled Kelm, and signature of Samuel Kelm.  The Broderbund CD-2 says name is Helm, which I think is incorrect.  It is likely there were other children by Mary". (olkjr)  (may have been called Melissa by family?  (Debbie Jackson notes)  Mary probably had other children, none known or shown at this time. (April 2001)

  Notes for LOUISA BRIGHT:

Louisa's probate records were in the Marshall, Ill Courthouse.  She may have

been Samuel's 2nd wife?  Her name was spelled Bright and also Brite.  She was not buried in the same Melrose Cemetery as was Samuel.

  Notes for HINCH KELM KELLAM:

This information from June Vance, (codybug10@aol.com), and  Beth Moore. The second marriage of Hinch is recorded at the Perry Co. court house. Both Hinch, his second wife, Rebecca, were alive  in 1878, because at that time they were receiving pension monies for Rebecca's 2 children by her first husband on his Civil War service.  Hinch and Rebecca had been awarded custody of them.  (under the law she would not automatically have been awarded custody of her own children, usually).  By 1880 they may have been dead, because Alfred Crutchfield was then guardian for the children.  June Codybug states the pension and court records seem to suggest there many have been a problem with the received funds, some of it having to be paid back.

  Notes for SARAH UNKNOWN:

Info from Beth Moore.

  Notes for REBECCA ADER:

Rebecca had 2 children by her first husband who died in the Civil War. It is not known for sure if she had children by Hinch Kellam.

  Notes for VIOLA KELM KELLAM:

Source and reference for this line is Gayle Putt, desc. of Sarah (Sallie) Brown.   Viola is not document/proven to ASA this date (July 2002) but appears to fit  right area, fits with an unknown daughter of Asa as per census records, useage of the KELM spelling, other Kellam/Kelm families in the area accounted for.

  SOURCE: Family Bible of Mary Logan Jolly, Gr-grandaughter of Viola Kelms Walker.  1850 Census from Meade Co. KY  According to these family records, Viola's last name was Walker.  However, Meade Co. marriages 1824-1844 p. 30 states on 3 Jun 1840, Samuel S. Brown and Viola Kelms, both of age, were married by John G. Denton.  It appears the family records confuse the last names of Charles Logan Pate's mother, Mary Ellen Walker with the name of his wife's mother, Viola Kelms.

  An unconnected note: "" Robert Stockmeyer writes: My gggrandfather Harmon Kelms was born February 3, l805 in Virginia. In Indiania and Illinois he used the spelling Kellems. His oldest son in Tennessee used the Kellum spelling. Our family tradition is that the name was German and that we were sent into England because of hard times and religious persecutions (someone in the family may well hve been German Palatine, or Mennonite, as this history fits either  sss/fss)   then  to America out of New Castle upon Tyne, England.""

Pennsylvania-.  He married HARRIET CHAPMAN Abt. 1810 in Pike/Wayne Cos., Pennsylvania, daughter of ROSWELL CHAPMAN.  She was born June 12, 1796 in Pike Co., Pennsylvania, and died December 20, 1887 in Michigan - ae 91.

Notes for IRA KELLAM:

Ira, said to have  fathered 10 children, is the only one of this immediate family who stayed in Paupeck. ("History of Wayne, Pike and Monroe"  c1886)     He settled on lands originally held by his father, but never held title to them.  Like his  relations--all sides, he was a farmer, a lumberman.  He bought part of lot # 10, and 70 acres on the West Side of the Wallenpaupack Creek.  He also had 1/3rd interest in a tract on the Purdy Beaverdam Brook.   He seems quite successful for a business man considering the era in which he lived.    Measles are still deadly, and they killed him at the age of 41.

  Notes for HARRIET CHAPMAN:

After Ira died, Harriet remarried, and went to Michigan, taking some of the children with her.

  Notes for LUCY C. KELLAM:

EKB's notes state Lucy was erroneously given to Moses Killam  in the Howard Kimble book, but this was incorrect.  The naming patterns make it difficult, often, to put the children in the correct families.

  Notes for EPHRAIM JR. KIMBLE:

Ephraim settled at the Narrows, where he built a grist mill, clearing land that is south of where the railroad tracks went in. His log house left traces of it's foundation and the big frame house stood until 1950, when it was taken down for it's lumber.  

Ephraim served with the Pennsylvania 5th, attaining the rank of Capt.  He is mentioned in Pennsylvania Archives, Series 6, Vol. IV, pg. 693--the Brigade was mustered on 20 Oct 1798.

Old Paupack Cemetery.  

Notes for BENJAMIN TUSTIN KELLAM:

""Benjamin T. Kellam  was reared in Pike Co, where he attended the district schools.  He was also sent to Goshen, NY to attend school.  He first farmed on the land cleared by the native Indians along the flats of the Paupack stream, but later became interested in lumbering---like so many others.  Benjamin also served the community at large as a Minister in the Methodist Episcopal Church, but was well known for  helping everyone, no matter what their denomination might be.  His reputation  throughout Pike and Wayne Counties was that of a man of hospitality and hard work.""

  Notes for ELIZABETH WITTER:

Said to be the first white child born in the area.  Her parents had left the Wyoming Valley area about the time of the massacre.  For years, also, the date of birth of Benjamin  was skewed to  cover the fact he was a fair bit younger than his wife, 17 when his first child was born.

  Notes for MARCUS N. B. KELLAM:

Marcus N.B. Killam is representative of one of the oldest and most prominent, prolific, pioneer families of  North Eastern Pennsylvania.  He was born in Palmyra Township, Pike Co., (Born at the time the French were better liked than the English, his name of Marcus Napolean Bonaparte was the result.) living his entire life in this rural area.  He attended the "common" schools available, assisting his father in the work of the farm, the lumbering business until her was about 30---at which time he took full charge of both.  The family owned large tracts of valuable timber, in both Pike and Wayne Cos.  In 1869 Marcus sold 3, 400 acres to Farnham Collingwood and Co., besides houses, 100 acres of cleared land, and other property  he operated a saw mill he owned for many years, was active in the lumbering business until old age.  He and his wife settled on a 500 acres tract he'd purchased, living quietly, with great comfort and style.  He oversaw the lumber work until his very late years, was reputed to have an active mind, interest in politics and events of the day (Beers)

  He and his wife celebrated their Golden Wedding,  were given a surprise party by their children, friends.

  Marcus was elected Justice of the peace several times, joined the Republican party soon after it's formation, but held out against any public offices offered him.  Both he, his wife, were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

  An insert note by Edith Kellam who worked very hard on the genealogy, states Marcus served in the Revolution ---he well could have, but the statement he served under Washington does not, to date, show in the records in Washington, DC.

  35.  MOSES JR.10 KELLAM (MOSES SR.9, ZADOCK8, JOHN KILLAM7, SAMUEL KILLAM6, JOHN KILLAM5, AUSTIN (AUGUSTINE) (KILHAM)4, HENRY (KILHAM)3, WILLIAM (KILHAM)2, UNKNOWN1 KILHAM) was born October 02, 1783 in Orange Co., New York, and died October 06, 1861 in Pike Co., Pennsylvania   ae 78 yrs..  He married LUCY KIMBLE Abt. 1811 in Pike Co., Pennsylvania, daughter of EPHRAIM KIMBLE and EUNICE ANSLEY.  She was born October 02, 1793 in Paupack, Pike Co., Pennsylvania, and died August 02, 1851 in Pike Co., Pennsylvania.  

Notes for MOSES JR. KELLAM:

Moses Jr. was a surveyor with Jason Torrey, and followed his father as a Justice of the Peace.  He surveyed large tracts of land in Wayne Co., being, at one time Deputy Surveyor at the time Richard T. Leach was Surveyor General of Pennsylvania.  Moses, like most of the men of his family, in laws--was farming and lumbering.

  He inherited via his father's will all the lands owned by his Father, adding to these others he bought.    He, Otto Kimble, Enos Woodward were all appointed commissioners to see to straightening the turns and bends in the Wallenpaupack Creek, lowering the bed of the stream at Wilsonville.

  Moses Jr. built the first grist mill having burr stones in it, on north branch of Kimble Brook 3/4 of a mile above the log mill owned by Abel Kimble.

  Moses was once a candidate for Representative to the Legislature of Pennsylvania, but Wayne and Pike were to heavily Democratic to elect a Wig to the legislature.

  The double house where the Moses Jr. family resided from 1833 to when he moved up the hill to the old Kellam Homestead ( a claim which was Zadock's, then Moses Sr, Moses, Jr, Geroge Neldin Kellam and james Garfield Illam---the last Killam/Kellam owner)  It  sold after his death due to the attraction of Lake Wallenpaupack.

  He' s buried in Old Paupack Cemetery, stone says at age 78 years. Name spelled Kellam/Killam.  His wife, Lucy is also  buried there.  Her tombstone states she was age 51y 10 mo at death, which doesn't agree with the census, the Bible, or the age of her first child.

  Bible of this family is noted --by both  Edith Kellam and Howard Kimble-- as belonging to Mrs. Dick Teeter of Hawley, in the 1970s.

        Children of MOSES KELLAM and LUCY KIMBLE are:

                   i.       DANIEL DIMMICK11 KELLAM, b. April 20, 1811, Pike Co., Pennsylvania; d. May 19, 1876, Pike Co., Pennsylvania- Bur. Old Paupack Cem.; m.

  Notes for DANIEL DIMMICK KELLAM:

The spelling is Killam/Kellam.  He spent his married life on lot # 25 which his father purchased from William Chapman, who moved to Ohio about the time Daniel was married.

The varying records do not show Clay Kellam as his son, but--the Clay Kellam family records, the DAR application, all document him.

  Notes for RUSH KILLAM KELLAM:

This family lived in Rock Co., Wisconsin, as per Juli Martin, email: mzvenus@mindspring.com

  ""Rush KILLAM, the father of Kimble KILLAM, was a farmer, and migrated to Wisconsin in

1839, entering a farm from the government, in the northern part of Milton, in sections 1 and 2. This property he improved, and resided on it until his death, which occurred in 1871, when he was fifty-seven. His widow stills survives, residing on a farm in Lima, owned by Kimble KILLAM. In religious belief Mrs. Rush KILLAM is a Methodist, while her husband was a Universalist. During his life Rush KILLAM was township supervisor and assessor.

   Five children were born to this worthy couple, one son and four daughters, four now living: Lucy A. Kimble; Harriet, deceased, who was the wife of S. F. MINARD; Cornelia I., wife of J. J. NEAL of Chicago; and Augusta, wife of August DAHBERG, of Chicago. "

Notes for EPHRAIM III KELLAM:

Ephraim III, a surveyor and justice of the peace in Hawley, gave great time and attention to the early settlers of Wallen-Paupack.  He was probably one of the most qualified, coming from a  family with close ties by intermarriage and blood  to all the other settling families, and generationally doing business within the settlement, personally or professionally.  Ephraim wrote reminiscences of most of the settlers.  He wrote specifically  of his double house, built by roofing over the stone steps which served two houses--his, and Ira Killam's which were built just alike, close enough together so one set of outside stone steps could serve both.  Once Ira died, the widow sold to Moses, Jr, making him the proprietor of the Old Killam Homestead claims of both Zadock and his son, Ephraim who was Ira's father, and lived with Moses  the 3 years he had left after 1833 when Ira's widow moved to Michigan and Ira's son, Powell, moved onto a farm west of the Paupack, in Wayne Co.,

Notes for JOHN C. GEER:

John C. Geer is listed in the records as having Mary for his Mother. However, from the dates of the  births of the children, it seems likely he was the last born of Hannah Kimball, perhaps she died at his birth. Often, babies raised by a rapidly married 2nd wife grew up remembering the Mother they had, not the one they lost so early.

  Oddly, whichever woman was his Mother, his father's mother was Meribah Killam/Kellam, daughter of Jeptha  who d. 1757.  Once again, cousins married.  And, if Hannah Kimball was his mother, he was doubly related to all of the families.  

                                             LONG EDDY AND THE GEER HOUSE

  This was in old times a famous landing for rafts. It is at the extreme south end of the town.  John Geer was the first and for a long time the only settler, and his son John resides there still. He had a log house, with two large rooms on the ground floor. Here he entertained raftsmen with such accommodations as he had. Frequently not one-half who came could not sleep in the house. The chamber floor, of rough hemlock boards, unmatched, was covered with straw, and on this the wearied raftsmen were glad to lie, packed in rows. When this was full and the floors below, the surplus went to the barn and slept on the hay, if there was any, and if not, on the floor. The raftsmen were a jovial and rollicking set, and at Geer's it was often after midnight before any one could sleep.

  One night, after the upper floor had been packed, a barrel of beans was overturned, and some fell through cracks. One of the boys called out,"There! Mr. Maples, you've knocked over the beans." (Mr. Maples, was a merchant and owner of several rafts, and was doubtless asleep.) Mrs. Geer went to the ladder and exclaimed, "Mr. Maples! You shall pay for every one of them beans."   And he did, for it was done purposely by one of his men. It was near midnight before all could be provided with supper.

  Notes for JOHN KELLAM:

John was christened in Bedford, Westchester Co., New York 13 July, 1788--indicating the family was at least, briefly, in this area.   John Kellam (Killam) was assessed in 1827 for 90 acres of improved land. He had settled, in 1816, at Pine Flat. In 1880, he was living with his daughter, Commertha Doyle. John died at the age of 90, in 1877, a conflicting date as to his death.  1874 date is more likely correct.

  Main source for details and clarification of this line forward is Patty Hankins, a double descendant.  While attending school, her own life, other  genealogical "puzzles" , her patience, quick responses are helpful beyond measure.

  Notes for MARY (POLLY) SOPHIA KELLAM:

There has been some discussion as to the correct name of Mary Kellam. The Lukens family researcher  records stated her to be a Mary Sophia. However, there was NO Sophia family in the area, state,  before, or after.  Several branches, not personally knowing of one another, stated--Derrick Lukens wife was Mary Kellam.  Mrs .Paula E.  Prindle, of Afton, NY, wrote (1981), she descended for Derrick Lukens, his wife, Mary Kellam,  Derrick was the son of  Polly North, who had also md. a Derrick Lukens.  Mary was 31 when she appears to have had her first child by Derrick Lukens. Was she a late marry-er, or did she have a husband before Derrick--widowed early with no children, perhaps? Gives her age as 63 in June of 1880, when she is shown living with her daughter, son in law, the Paul Ross' family.    The portrait photo of her has survived in the family of Patty Hankins, a desc., on it was written, "Mary (Polly) Kellam Lukens."

  Notes for JOHN ROSS KELLAM:

John is said to have been a "later marrier", as was his son. Living alone, 1860 Census,  #280 - listed as "retired country Gentleman".  John owned the Hankins Hotel,  was killed when he fell down the stairs in the hotel. (letter, Emadale Kellam)  

Residing Windsor, Broome Co., New York 1850, pg. 220 of the census.  In 1860, he was living Fremont, Sulivan Co., New York,  giving his occupation as Lumberman.  He seemed to be boarding with Susan Hankins. Altho not formally documented as yet, it appears this would be the Hankins Hotel, Hankins, New York--owned first by Susan Hankins, widow of John, and later by John Kellam, his wife, Frances ( Shafer).

  From Patty Hankins to Sheila Stover - April, 2000

  "Sheila - In one of notes  I sent to you - I included info  on John R. Kellam -son of John Kellam and Jane Ross was born on April 23, 1830 at Hankins, Sullivan Co., NY. Looking at the various sources of info I've got - I think this is incorrect. 1) In the 1860, 1880 and 1900 censuses - his birthplace is consistently listed as PA. 2) The 1830 census - taken June 1 - two months after John R's birth -has the family at Manchester, Wayne County, PA. 3) Town of Hankins wasn't founded until about 1840. At this point - I have no source that says he was born at Manchester,  Wayne County - but I'm willing to bet that he was. In my files - I'm

going to switch it to being born in PA - most likely at Manchester, Wayne Co.         Patty"

  Living Fremont, Sullivan Co., New York, 1900. (P Hankins)

Marriages from Delhi Republican Newspapers, 1860 - 1869    Electronic File by Alan Malz

  Nov 17   -- In Delhi,  , Nov 5th, by Rev. J. S. Pattengill, Mr ALEXANDER KELLAM, Hamden, to Miss JULIA A. NILES, Walton.

Notes for JULIA A. NILES:

Two of her daughters married:  one to C.F. Geary, whose home she died in, and one married E.O. Cole.  The obituary does not mention maiden names of anyone, nor  when her husband died, but does say, they moved to Ridgeway in 1888.    Family records give Niles for her last name, but her obituary, minister's return for the marriage stated Lukins.  With so much intermarriage,cousinship relationships, it would be an easy error.

63.  PHOEBE10 KELLAM (JEPTHA9, JEPTHA8, JOHN KILLAM7, SAMUEL KILLAM6, JOHN KILLAM5, AUSTIN (AUGUSTINE) (KILHAM)4, HENRY (KILHAM)3, WILLIAM (KILHAM)2, UNKNOWN1 KILHAM) was born March 23, 1790 in Minisink Valley, New York, and died January 1867 in Tyler Woods, Wayne Co.,  Pennsylvania.  She married WILLIAM (ROCK RUN BILL) TYLER Bet. 1810 - 1811 in Wayne Co., Pennsylvania ?, son of NATHANIEL TYLER and MARGARET ROSS.  He was born September 08, 1788 in Delaware Co., New York, and died November 27, 1876 in Tyler Woods, Wayne Co., Pennsylvania.  

Notes for PHOEBE KELLAM:

A maple ladder back rocker  was a wedding gift  from  Phoebe, a great favorite in the family, owned, in 1993, by Marjorie Thomas Anderson, Phoebe's great grand-daughter.

  On a night in the winter, probably snow up to the knees and cold, given the area--Phoebe was awaked by  pounding on the door.  The tale goes she opened up to see her son, Edward, standing at the door, with a tiny wrapped bundle in his arms, tears streaming down his face, freezing in place. His wife had just died, having given birth to the infant son in his arms.  Marjorie Anderson's book tells the same story, pretty much, and states the baby boy was named in honor of the mid wife who  was able to deliver him safely.

        Children of PHOEBE KELLAM and WILLIAM TYLER are:

                   i.       MARYBE11 TYLER, b. Calicoon area, New York; m. CORNELIUS WAINWRIGHT.

64.  GEORGE10 KELLAM (JEPTHA9, JEPTHA8, JOHN KILLAM7, SAMUEL KILLAM6, JOHN KILLAM5, AUSTIN (AUGUSTINE) (KILHAM)4, HENRY (KILHAM)3, WILLIAM (KILHAM)2, UNKNOWN1 KILHAM) was born July 21, 1792 in Wayne Co., Pennsylvania.  He married UNKNOWN Abt. 1813 in Pennsylvania. 

  Notes for GEORGE KELLAM:

George lived at Bramens, but settled at Pine Flat where he engaged intensely in farming, lumbering, and mercantile business.  He was considered very eccentric, he owned  a large mansion, where he had lived in solitude.  He died a very old man, the farm and mansion eventually passed into the hands of a Joseph Ross, who was probably a relative.  Was George's unknown wife a Ross, making this a natural progression of inheritance?  Was she a Lukins, accounting for the name of his supposed 1st born son?  The Lukens and Ross intermarried often--again, this would account for where the mansion and land ended up.

  There are discrepancies with this particular George. It was said he didn't marry-- yet  records point definitely to his marrying, having a family.  A 1950s a note in the files of the Binghamton Kellams said he lived alone most of his life-- that he" didn't see his children".

  Thanks to the  clear eyed view of Patty Hankins, here is an unproven theory, supported by some evidence, of what MAY be the correct or partially correct, answer.

Notes for JOHN KELLAM:

Marjorie Anderson's book lists John as the son of George, but gave George the wrong wife.  It appears John was married twice, Emily dying  after the birth of their child.  (Kingsbury family note on a child losing  it's mother)  Did the child also  die?  It doesn't show in the household of John and Jane.

    65.  JACOB10 KELLAM (JEPTHA9, JEPTHA8, JOHN KILLAM7, SAMUEL KILLAM6, JOHN KILLAM5, AUSTIN (AUGUSTINE) (KILHAM)4, HENRY (KILHAM)3, WILLIAM (KILHAM)2, UNKNOWN1 KILHAM) was born October 14, 1795 in New Jersey, and died February 02, 1868 in Long Eddy, Sullivan Co.., New York.  He married (1) HANNAH PIERCE May 27, 1818 in Sullivan Co., New York, daughter of HENRY PIERCE and MARIA/MARY EMANUEL/MANN.  She was born September 13, 1800 in Ulster Co. or Sullivan Co., New York, and died March 31, 1876 in Long Eddy, Sullivan Co., New York.

  Notes for JACOB KELLAM:

"History of Wayne, Pike and Monroe Counties" (1886) states " Jacob settled on the Delaware above the mouth of Little Equinunk Creek, where he cleared a large farm."

  In 1827, he  was  assessed for 60 acres of improved and 560 of unimproved land.  The large farm he cleared, with the necessary buildings, orchards and miles of stone wall --attests to his energy.  Lack of prudent financial  care unfortunately  left this large and good estate drastically tied up.  Jacob died intestate,  much litigation followed his death.  Between courts, attorneys, the property passed to them, with little remaining for his heirs.   Eventually, the bulk of the land was purchased by Warner P. Adams, a man who later  became his  grandson, Timothy's, Uncle in-law.     (see ADAMS chapter)

  According to the "Commemorative Biographical Record of North Eastern Pennsylvania"  ppg. 504-505..  "they moved by canoe to Little Equinunk, where Jacob purchased several thousand acres of land, erecting two sawmills on the Delaware River, at the mouth of the Little Equinunk Creek"  The arrival of the Jacob  Kellams via canoe has  popped up among relatives this author never even knew about  until the last 30 years.  It came to me first via my great Uncle, Lawrence Jeptha Kellam, a doctor in Binghamton, New York, brother to my  grandfather.    (date on my notes is 1960)

 "About 1820,  what appeared coming  along the Delaware in late Spring, but a birch bark canoe, gliding along in the mid-day sun, carrying Jacob, wife, Hannah, and a baby boy, ( William, their first born).  It would've been  after the worst of  the ice flows had dissipated.

  The version I heard included the tidbit Hannah's family,  other cousins of them both, had provided the canoe,  shortly  followed with a raft containing household goods and provisions, the men staying long enough to help with clearing and  building for the young couple.  ( It was good to see it partially  confirmed in a book published 1906.)

  Jacob made many improvements, building houses and barns clearing over 600 acres of land, which he placed in a high yield cultivation  pattern. This  is land he purchased  from John Lord, his wife, Lydia Adams Lord, in 1828 (date of recording)  In actuality, the purchase was for 650 acres.  It was part of a Pennsylvania Land Warrent issued to John Lord many years before.

  Jacob cleared the land at Equinunk flats in the Delaware Valley.  He built two saw mills and was known all over for the miles of stone walls he built on his land.  The cabin he erected was of  logs from his own woods  and sat up  at the top of a hill  overlooking the Equinunk Creek, but facing the state road. The fireplace in the large central room was of field stone,  big enough to  hold half of a good size tree. The original cabin held  the main room, and two similar rooms.  When more children were born, a huge room was added, using the fireplace, and a new opening on the opposite side, to heat the later room.   Eventually, the cabin was doubled in size, with rooms, lofts, and interior finished  to  make any signs of logs go un-noticed.  One of the new additions had a staircase that was between the walls, quite an innovation for the time. A root cellar was dug into the hill behind,  entered by going thru the kitchen at the rear.

  Always enterprising, and with a large family, Jacob built his own schoolhouse at the edge of town (Manchester Twnp) in 1827.  In 1834, Pennsylvania passed the School Law, but with Jacob's building already in place,  his school house stood.  The School Directors finally purchased it, with it's improvements--Jacob  never left ANYTHING the way it was when first built-- on 9 Feb. 1860, for $200 dollars (source: court records, town minutes).  This school was still in operation well into the early  1900s  

Jacob  was the principal businessman of his area,  one of the most generous and enterprising of citizens in Wayne County (PA).  Jacob was instrumental in laying out the old State Road, leading from Philadelphia to Hale's Eddy, New York, on the Delaware River.  Much of it is still in use today.  Jacob had no formal schooling, but had acquired, via his extensive  business and  area dealings, an excellent knowledge of men, affairs and business methods. He was known for a phenomenal memory, and it was said of him---- he would, without a note or figure on the books, settle correctly  any business done during the year.

  Jacob's generosity and liberal mindedness were well known, much admired throughout the entire eastern portion of Pennsylvania.  He was especially noted by those with whom he had dealings, and among the poor  whom he had helped.

  Jacob, via his mother, Mary Lott's family, was heavily Indian mix, (Shawnee/ Cherokee) as were  a large percentage of the settlers in that area.  (also see Pierce chapter) As well as farther back on the Kellam side.   Many of the qualities admired in Jacob  were those which thousands of years of  tradition instilled in the Native People. Care of the land, fair dealings with all, a helping hand to anyone who was in need.

 Jacob his wife, Hannah (Pierce) Kellam, were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, even though her families religious  background was Dutch Reform.

Jacob died in his own home. He didn't have a will---rather odd, considering he had always been a good businessman and forward in his views.  He had acquired over 1,700 acres,  which contained his mills, buildings.  Due to the court, legal, attorneys, fees (things  don't change much, do they?) his large estate was so depleted there was next to nothing left for his  heirs.  His wife, Hannah, died at the home of their son, Jeptha.  Both deaths occurred at Little Equinunk, and, according to their gt.gt. grandson, Larence Manning Kellam, they were interred in the private Kellam Cemetery, near Kellams Bridge -  Stalker.  A monument was later erected at the cemetery over the state line near Long Eddy, Sullivan Co., New York, (left hand side, as one drives North  towards Hancock)  giving rise to the oft made error they are buried there.

  Notes for HANNAH PIERCE:

No mention was made of siblings/ parents  of Hannah in the " Biographical History of Wayne, Pike and Monroe Counties,Pennsylvania" history.  Her obituary,  (lengthy to the extreme), extolled her "good Christian values",   spoke  endlessly of her children, home,  etc., made absolutely no reference-again- to  her parents, siblings, family, place of origin.

  Her grandson, Timothy, (she died in his home when he was well into his teens)  others, knew her,  no one spoke  of her, were evasive.  Would not talk about her, or their  kin.

  Lengthy research, working with tribes on the east coast, their history, naming patterns, migration,  finally solved the puzzle to a large extent.   She was Native American/Indian, and due to the social mores of the times,  attitudes, laws, it was neither wise, nor safe, to  admit, let alone be open, to such a fact. Everyone was pretty  much in the same situation in  that area. -It was a case of "hiding in plain sight".  It was an amusing anecdote to learn, Hannah was instrumental in helping get the Minisink Monument erected,(c1833) the People put the names on it as they knew them.  Knowing full well her Grandfather was not only a Tory, but an Indian, she  put his name on it, and it became a secret joke among those who knew, remembered.  Hardly the type of thing one would  splash in a biographical book, or in the obit!

  Hannah was living in Little Equinunk, Pennsylvania,  Wayne Co.,1870.  In the household with her was daughter, Barilla Kellam, and a Loretta Layton, age 12, b. 1858.

  Children of JACOB KELLAM and HANNAH PIERCE are:

                   i.       WILLIAM TYLER11 KELLAM, b. April 15, 1819, Little Equinunk, Wayne Co.,  Pennsylvania; d. April 20, 1887, New York State; m. JERUSHA JANE HUNTINGTON, Abt. 1850, New York State; b. 1827, Sullivan Co., New York; d. Bef. 1887, New York State.

  Notes for WILLIAM TYLER KELLAM:

William moved back to Jacob's land after his death, no doubt due to all the problems with the estate--he WAS the eldest son. There they remained, 1872 thru the end of the decade,when the land was put up for auction to settle Jacob's estate--- purchased by  George C. Waller, his wife, Elizabeth (Lizzie).

  The County history said there were no children of the marriage.  However, in 1850, and 1860, (Fremont, New York) they have living with them boys, who fit, age wise, naming pattern.  Then there is the cemetery--

  According to cemetery records, one son , who died without issue, is buried in the Kellam Cemetery - the one on the way to Hancock-  Until such time as records prove the sons belong elsewhere, to someone else, they stand as listed.

   From the current issue.)-- McKoon, Morgan L.)  "In the Days of My Youth" The Echo. Vol XVII No 6. Summer 2001. pp 4-5 p 4  Published by the Basket Historical Society.

  "Across the railroad, just opposite the depot, at the end of a stone walk flanked by apple trees still stands an old [sic] white house, now with leaking roof and wabbling frame, almost ready to fall down. It was the home of William T. Kellam, known as "Yawpee Bill" Kellam, not to be confused with William M. Kellam, known as "Lawyer Bill".   William T. "got into the act" as far a dabbling with real estate in these parts is concerned, about 1863.   He owned land along the Adams Brook.   "Lawyer Bill's" holdings were mostly along Geer's Brook, now known as Pea Brook.

  The header on the article says   "These early accounts, of his life at Long Eddy, were written down by Morgan L. McKoon (1879-1960)  in the mid-1950s. He was then a man in his seventies but with excellent recall, a keen wit, and the gifts of a born storyteller. He was the son of Horace and the grandson of Samuel McKoon, early residents and distinguished citizens of the village they called home."

                    ii.       JEPTHA KELLAM, b. September 21, 1820, Little Equinunk Flats, Wayne Co., Pennsylvania; d. February 05, 1889, Long Eddy, Sullivan  Co., New York; m. ELVIRA BEDA PARSONS, July 23, 1846, Delaware Co., New York; b. April 20, 1826, Meredith, Delaware Co., New York; d. December 10, 1882, Long Eddy, Sullivan Co., New York.

  Notes for JEPTHA KELLAM:

Jeptha has been a topic of conversation among descendants over the years.  He was  a rafter, logger,  "rough as a cob" in the words of  one of the older Lord  men, ( mid 1980s.)  He was also said to be charming, "a real good looker", tall-- with a dark complexion, hair,  unusually blue eyes not common in the Kellam family--at least the ones in  memory.

  An article in Hancock Herald, written about the history of Hancock, (Delaware Co.,)  New York reads:  "according to Moran L. McKoon's records, land was owned by Jeptha in the early 1840s when the first permanent settlers started to move into the wild "Basket country".  (a particular area along the Delaware River)  He had evidently begun acquiring land at an early age,  because by 1852, Jeptha sold approximately 1500 acres, referred to in records as the Basket Brook - even now known for it's great trout fishing -  to Joseph Yendes and James Brown.  He'd built a mill there, done some lumbering, he could have been residing on it during that period, or across the river in Pennsylvania, where he had cleared land adjoining his father's farm.  He actually appears to have done more business from there.  He built a home on it, raising his family there.  The house faced faced the river, all by itself on the flats, with the Erie railroad and the road to Long Eddy on the other side.  it was  katty cornered from the mouth of the Basket Brook. Jeptha next purchased the 100 acre tract up river from John Lord II ,his wife, Lydia Adams Lord, to  expand his lumbering business.  By the time he cleared all this,  he was almost to Long Eddy and at the northeastern end  of his father, Jacobs, fields. ( In 1882, Marjorie Thomas Anderson's grandfather bought that homestead portion, where  she was born in 1902.)

  The logs were hauled to a wide river beach used as a landing for the logs.  A busy spot, due to New York logs coming out of the Basket country, and all coming together to  be made up  into rafts.  Jep, as he was called, would then start down the Delaware  to Philadelphia, from the "Basket Eddy".

  He  is credited with operating a saw mill at an early date just below the Red School House, but most of his rafting activities were in Pennsylvania, opposite the Basket, and Long Eddy", as stated above.

  "Rafting on the Delaware" and "Holt! T'Other Way", both by Leslie C. Wood, mentions Jeptha  "Jep" Kellam as owning, operating the next mill above "Mrs. McDuffy's Mill".  It went on to say  he "employed a large number of men, got out thousands of feet of lumber"  These same books also state Jep Kellam was a steersman, and eventually given the title of "Basket Steersman".  

Through his marriage into the Parsons family of Merideth,  in Delaware Co., he was also peripherally involved in some of their milling work. Once he had cleared the 100 acres, he needed more timber, moved his family up into Delaware Co., New York. (Upper branch of the Delaware) Jeptha is on the 1860 New York census living in Delhi with his wife, Elvira, their first born child, Hannah Parsons Kellam, age 2.

  Jeptha took his usual  load of logs down river to Philadelphia, a common enough trek for the rafters in those days---leaving late spring 1863. No one heard from him for months--it was later learned, he had  decided to go to California, finally returning in May of 1864. Speculation has long been made as to why--did he go there to avoid the Civil War--everyone else in the extended family enlisted--a few current family members said maybe, due to harsh times, he was trying to  go to the gold fields, make some money.  Considering he was running a good business, owned a great deal of land, earned  monies rafting, had in laws who were "comfortable" - Knowing as much as was learned from court records about his businesses, I personally never felt monetary problems were behind his sudden disappearance.  None of his letters (few as they seemed to be) survived.  For Elvira's letters in full, see PARSONS chapter.  

From Hancock Herald , February 16, 1939: "Fifty Years Ago, Feb. 14, 1889"

  "Jeptha Kellam was buried at Long Eddy Feb. 7, aged 68. His father Jacob Kellam cleared up a farm at Equinunk in 1816. "

Jeptha is buried  in Long Eddy Cemetery, Sullivan Co., New York.  His obituary read: "The following is from the pen of an esteemed reader in Long Eddy."

  ""Jeptha Kellam was buried in the Halsey Cemetery in this place on Thursday last, February 7.  The funeral services were conducted by Rev Wm. Nelson of Equinunk, sited by the rev. Mr Turrentine of the same place and Rev. L. F.  Piper of Long Eddy.

  He died from paralysis from which he had been ailing for a long time and which for the last two or three years rendered him helpless.  He was 68 years old and was born on the Little Equinunk flats where his father, Jacob Kellam settled some time between 1816 and 1820.  He at one time owned what is known as the Halsey property at Long Eddy, on a part of which now stands a large portion of the village.  He cleared up the large farm now occupied by Coe, Youngs in Manchester, Pa., after which and when no longer able to labor from the disease then coming on him, he settled finally at Long Eddy.  

He was a man of much intelligence, good judgement -- affable and pleasing in his manner, and a model  of industry, sobriety and energy. His "excellent wife" passed on before, a few years since, and it was a singular circumstance that the morning before he died, he spoke her name, and upon being asked if he saw her, said " that he did and that he wanted to go to where she was."

  Notes for ELVIRA BEDA PARSONS:

Elvira was born in Merideth, New York, raised there and in nearby Franklin-the only girl in a family of boys.   She was educated at the Franklin Academy.  On the 1850 census, the family can be found living in Delaware Co., where her husband, Jeptha, had  purchased some land.  He was from a rafting family, his family having established the rafting on the Delaware River two generations prior.  They then lived in Long Eddy, New York, where he was both a farmer, and a rafter--referred to in the history of the rafting as "Jep Kellam", he was considered quite a steersman.  

There was a period when Elvira was alone with several small children, didn't even know for certain where he was.  Her letters to her sister in law, Barilla Kellam of Philadelphia are in the possession of the author /compiler of this book.  They show her to be well educated, capable, above all, devoted and patient, with a delightful sense of humor and enjoyment of pranks.   Elvira looked after her home, garden, infant children, friend without reported/recorded complaint.

  Jeptha was gone about a year--some of the family has long speculated he went west to avoid the Civil War--(see his bio) -he did return, they had more children--- from all reports, appear to have  "lived happily ever after", were quite devoted.

  An oil painting of her belongs to another descendant, she looks a bit stern, but that was the method photography in the period, not her personality!!!

  She's buried in Long Eddy, Sullivan Co., New York, having died young for this family, aged 56.

  ""In 1878, the Parminter house came into the possession of Elvira B. Kellam.   Her heirs conveyed the property to  "Aunt Betsey."  Well known among the children of Elvira were Milton C. and Jacob, wholesale grocers of Binghamton.  Another heir was Mrs Cyrus Peak. Betsey Kellam enlarged the building to accommodate boarders, and many a stone-cutter carried his dinner pail from her house each morning. Her brother, Preston, was instrumental in getting a dance floor built on the north side of the house, and for many years thereafter "Kellam's Hall" was widely know throughout the area. Even after Betsey's death, and ownership passed to Stephen Porter, the Hall was used for dances and entertainments. The Hall is now gone, but the house still stands, occupied by the Henry Doyle family.""   p 5

  Notes for BARILLA KELLAM:

Barilla Kellam did not marry.  She owned her own "fancy dress shop" in Philadelphia, PA for some time and was considered "one of the prominent and refined ladies of the area".  Those who remember hearing about her, or  knew her when they, themselves were quite young, remark she was of very strong opinions and will,  attractive, considered "stylish."

  Her niece, Lodusky (Dolly)  Barnes, is residing with her on the 1880, Manchester Twnp. census, again in 1910. Barilla appears to have been comfortable enough financially to have her own home. No small feat for a single lady of the times.

  Notes for PETER KELLAM:

Peter Kellam served in the Civil War with the 143rd NY volunteers.    He was on the  march with Sherman to the sea, and was wounded at the battle of Lookout Mountain, which left him crippled.  He later became a prominent business man, but never married.  In 1860, he was living with his sister, Loduska, and her husband, Thomas Barnes.  In 1880, he was living with Henry Pierce Kellam.  By 1900 he is living alone, and has Mary Thomas in his home as a servant.

  (it appears, in 1880, he was enumerated more than once, staying  for a period in the Thomas household.  The census was spread out over weeks,  it does happen.
