researching: Cox and Fox

I'm not sure my family are Quakers but given the history I've read looking for them - there's a good chance they could be. Here's what I have so far ---- Charles Cox, b.1820, marries Elizabeth Burr, b. 1820-ish - their children are Hannah, Charles, James and Franklin. The younger Charles, b. 1853, marries Keziah Budden (unsure of her b. yr.) - their children are Hannah, Pauline and possibly Leon. All of this is from Barnegat, NJ. Hannah, b. 1879, marries Alfred Fox, b. c. 1873 (also from Barnegat), I can't locate their marriage record. They have one daughter I know of for sure - my grandmother, Charlotte, b. 1906. FOX - Alfred Fox, b. 1824, marries Rachel Chambers (maybe Chamberlin?), b. 1827. The only child I find them having is Job, b. 1849. He marries Martha L. (??) - their children are Rachel and Alfred. Alfred, b. 1873, marries the above Hannah. Up to the marriage of Alfred and Hannah - all this info is from Barnegat. My grandmother was born in Boston, Mass. Any of this sound familiar to anyone? Thanks for any help that may be forthcoming. --------------------------------------------------

John Leaver

e-mail address: soccer_jonathon@hotmail.com. au

researching: (Probably) LEAVER

My Parents JOYCE AND HENRY (HARRY)LEAVER,told me before they passed away, that a U.S.A Quaker family was trying to make contact with them. My parents lived in the Woolwich/Plumstead area of South East London. My name is JOHN LEAVER and I was born in Erith in the county of Kent in 1947. My father HENRY CHARLES Leaver was born in Woolwich on 29/06/1920. My Mother's name was KATHLEEN ETHEL JOYCE Leaver (nee Williams). They were married in 1946, probably at St. Margerets church in Plumstead. My Grandfather's name was CHARLES HENRY Leaver, and my Grandmother's name was DORIS Leaver (nee ?). As far as I know, none of my family were Quakers, but be that as it may, if there is a family out there, who were trying to contact my parents, I will try and put the last pieces into the puzzle for you. Although I live in Australia, my parents never left London. If anyone experienced in genealogy knows of another site to post this message, please advise me, as I am a beginner to this subject. Thanks.

researching: CHEW, LOWDEN(?)

I am searching for information about the parents of Emeline CHEW. She was born in Pennsylvania on August 21, 1814, I believe. Her father was Richard CHEW, and her mother was Hannah LOWDEN(?). It is believed that Richard was related to Benjamin CHEW of Cliveden in Georgetown. Emeline was married to John Nichols in about 1838, and they moved to Iowa and later to New Jersey, where John, Jim, Louisa, Anna, and Rebecca were born. Emeline died on December 30, 1908, in White Oak Township, Hubbard County, Minnesota. I have been told that Emeline was the "black sheep" of the family because she moved to Iowa. Perhaps she was disowned? If anyone can tell me about Emeline or Richard CHEW or Hannah LOWDEN, I would great appreciate it. Thank you.

Now thee requested me to give thee an account of myself and family, in the first place I’am John Woody’s son, was born in Orange Co NC. the 23rd of 2nd mo 1810 moved to Parke Co. Ind. in the fall of 1829. I married the 19th of the 7th mo 1829. It now looks about 4 months of being 57 years. We have 10 children, 5 of each sex, buried 1 son & 1 daughter, the rest are all married and have families. 2 of them, 1 son and 1 daughter moved to Kansas a few years ago. The others are living near me. We have obeyed at lest one of the commandments “be fruitful & multiply”. Our familynow our children, grand children & great grandchildren numbers 120 living, 12 died. Their children & companions have all been converted (this may not be correct as I had a hard time reading this word MW) and quite a number of the grandchildren. My brother Thomas Woody that lived in Annapolis when you were here died 2 years ago last fall. Brother Mahlon Woody died last fall. Cousin James Woody that is uncle Samuel’s son died the past year. So we see we are passing away. But very few that marry are premitted to live together as long as my wife and I. She is 14 1/2 mounths older than I’am. We live alone, do our oun work. I make out to feed & milk, we keep but one cow is all the stock we keep & a few chickens. My wife does the work in the house, I churn & help to wash.

For some days people have commenced to plow and sow oats, wheat looks tolarable well. If I knew what else to write to interest thee I would write it, but perhaps what I have written will not be of interest. I have but 1 brother and 3 sisters living. If thee meets with L. L. A. (couldn’t read this well MW) Lamb again, my love to him, tell him I was glad to hear from him. Thee father and I are 1st cousins. Write & give me a history of thee ups & downs since thee left Annapolis. Love to thee and thine. Truly thee cousin James Woody xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Again if your are interetsted I will scan these pages and send them e- mail. Of interest to me is; 1. The amount of children who died. My great grand father had 8 children of who only 3 grew to adults. 2. The eb and flow of life and times. 3. That most letters I have, mention, family and friends, the weather and some about how they make their living (mostly farming etc. in those days) Take Care.

Vanessa Stanton Butler

e-mail address: vsb1956@aol.com

researching: Stanton

I am researching the ancestry of my ggg- grandfather, Lewis Stanton (b.1772, VA). Family history has it that he was the descendant of Quakers. I know that his father was John Stanton who died in Charlotte County, VA in 1784. There was no wife listed in John Stanton's will, and it is possible that Lewis was orphaned at the age of 12. His siblings were: Salley (b. 1775; m. William Harp in Granville County, NC), William, and Zachariah (d. 1821 in York County, SC). Lewis next appears on tax lists and marriage records of Granville County, NC where he married his wife, Elizabeth Smith, in 1798. There are several other Stantons living in that area at that time: Jacob, Sr., Jacob, Abram, John, and William (obviously too old to be Lewis's younger brother). Any information about any of these Stantons would be greatly appreciated.

researching: Hiatt, Hiett

I am trying to compile any information for John Hiatt, Jr, the son of John and Mary Smith Hiett, probably born in England around 1696. His brother George has some information posted, since he was active in MM throughout his life. John is sort of a blank for me so far, and I wonder if he married outside the Church or was simply not an active member. John Jr married 1.Rachel Wilson and 2. Margaret Stephens and had 18 children. He died around 1764 in the Shenandoah, VA area where brother George was also living until 1754 (when Geo moved to NC). John Jr's daughter Margaret married John Cravens in 1759 and so on goes my lineage which is in research. Since I can find no evidence that John Jr's or Margaret's spouses belonged to the Society, I hope you can shed a little historical info...thanks! --------------------------------------------------

researching: Ackworth Coffins

Hello! I am researching Benjamin Franklin Coffin, born in Ackworth, Iowa in 1862(Quaker records) or 1863(death certificate). I have been reading the Quaker archives and the Quaker discussions. The references to Ackworth have caught my attention. From the Quaker records (that I have access to) & Coffin books, I have found his parents, John Milton Coffin (b. 1821)and his mother, Martha Delphina Ventress(sp?), along with 8 siblings. If anyone with a book on Ackworth has a reference to this Coffin family, I would appreciate hearing about it. One of the meeting records shows John becoming a minister in 1866. I have a lot of research to do and a lot more to learn. We are new to genealogy and do not have your expertise. Hope that this is the correct way to ask this question. Thanks for reading this & for all the knowledge you share each day. Thanks, Elizabeth Coffin --------------------------------------------------
