51 "Charles Zimmerman was born in Germany Feb. 3, 1827; was reared on a farm and educated in the public schools of his native country; is a tailor by trade, and came to Mishawaka in 1868, where he carries on merchant tailoring, and is doing a good business. He was married in 1856 to Miss Magdalena Linsenmyer, by whom he had one child, Magdalena. Mrs. Z. died in 1857, and in 1861 he married Elizabeth Weise, by whom he has 5 children: William, Emma, Mary, Edward and Clara."

53 "d. May 22, 1825 age 20 yrs". She is not listed in 'Index to Vital Records of VT, Early to 1870' (transcribed by the LDS, but she is listed as a daughter of "S and M" in 'Cemetery Inscriptions of Rutland Co.' - buried at Whipple Hollow Cemetery. It is possible that her first name was Armarilla rather than Irmarilla - her probable older brother Samuel named a daughter Armarilla.

will of her grandfather Henry Penny.

Much information about Catherine Chapin and her ancestry is from by Douglas McMartin.

73 "Governor of the city of London in the 1st Edward I and d. in the 15th of the same reign". Burke names his wfe as Amy, daughter of Sir Morris Fitz-Morris but there may be problems with that. Clare, Thomas de (I22515)
74 "Great Alan". 2nd baron. In 'Annals of the House of Percy' Edward Barrington de Fonblanque writes that not much is known of the three generations following William de Percy. "We are not informed for what achievements Alan, the second baron, was by his contemporaries honoured with the surname of "the great". He probably gained military distinction in the wars waged by Henry I".

John Burke lists Alan as the father of William who married Alice de Tunbridge and who had no surviving sons and was survived by two daughters: Maud and Agnes. Other sources say Alan had a son William who married Alice de Ros or Rous, daughter of Everard de Ros, and they were the parents of William who married Alice de Tunbridge (daughter of Richard, third Earl of Clare and granddaughter of Gilbert Strongbow).
Percy, Alan de (I22665)
75 "Had three children and resided in Murray, Orleans NY in 1886." Harwood, Julia Ann (I5493)
76 "Harrison" age 10 in 1850 census and born IL. 1870 census of Aurora IL lists "AH" Hale age 26 b. IL with Mary Hale age 62 b. CT, listed just after Horace Hale family. In 1850 and 1880 Mary used her 2nd married name Goodale, or Goodell, in the census, in 1870 she used Hale? 1850 census lists Mary Goodale with Harrison Hale age 10 (looks like age 10 anyway). In 1900 A.H. Hale at Aurora IL, age 59 (b. Oct 1840), widower, with son Francis age 9. Could "AH" be Harrison? Could his name have been Albert Harrison Hale, or Harrison Albert Hale? An "H. Hale" is listed at Aurora in 1870 residing with the R.C. MIX family, laborer, age 30 and b. IL - age and birthplace is right to be Harrison who was 10 in 1850.

May have been first married (before 1868) to an Alena? (Kane Co divorce court record -Albert H. Hale - Alena Hale May 1868, case #9282, box #74, divorce). IL Marriage Records: Albert H. Hale - Alenia Ferre m. 24 Jan 1865 Adams Co IL. The 1860 census lists a Jerome and Amelia Ferree family at Beverly, Adams IL with daughters Helena age 19 and Ellen age 16 - all born Canada.

An article in the 27 Jun 1898 issue of Daily Register Gazette (Rockford IL) list the death of a 4 year old son of Albert Hale (byline dated 27 Jun 1898). "Aurora Ill. While turning a corner at Prairie Street and West Avenue this morning, Albert Hale's 4-year-old son, who was riding by his side, fell out, the wagon ran over him and he was instantly killed". The son is not named in the article.

78 "He was in membership with Friends, was a man of considerable influence and frequently represented (then) Chester County in the Provincial Assembly."

Daniel Williamson came from Cheshire to Pennsylvania in 1682 as a servant with Robert Taylor, of Little Leigh in that county, whose daughter he calls "cousin" in his will. His sister Ellen was married to Bartholomew Coppock, of High Leigh, and another sister, Mary, was the wife of John Howell, of Budworth, all in Cheshire. Howell and wife came over in 1683 in company with Robert Taylor's wife and children and settled in Marple Township. Bartholomew Coppock and wife settled in Springfield. By agreement with Robert Taylor, Daniel Williamson was to receive 50 acres of land for his services, in addition to the 50 acres granted by Penn to servants. The whole 100 acres were laid out Oct. 22, 1683, by warrant of Oct. 20, 1683, along with 300 acres, the purchase of John Howell, in Marple, and all patented to Howell July 25, 16S4. The latter, by a codicil to his will, directed his executors to confirm the 100 acres to Daniel Williamson, to wliom it was subsequently patented, Jan. 10, 1708." - Genealogy of the Smedley Family, p 59

Daniel Williamson and Mary Smith declared their intentions at Chester MM 7 mo. 7, 1685 and were approved 8 mo. 5, 1685. A patent was granted Jan. 29, 1684, to Thomas Rudyard for two tracts of 450 acres and 50 acres, in Newtown township. On July 15, 1685, Rudyard
conveyed the same land to Andrew Robeson, of Philadelphia, and he to Daniel Williamson, Nov. 24, 1692. The latter appears to have settled in Newtown and there remained till 1723, when he removed to Edgmont township, taking a certificate from Goshen to Chester Monthly Meeting, dated 4 mo. 7, 1723, - Genealogy of the Smedley Family, p 60

84 "Immigrated to Sheboygan Co WI in 1854. Several years later Gerrit Willem [father] and Jan Berend [brother] attempted to immigrate to America. My grandfather claims that they were involved in a boating accident in the English channel. When Gerrit Willem and Jan Berend went on deck, they were pushed into life boats. One ended up in England, the other in the Netherlands. I presume that Elsken, and Jan Berend's wife and children perished on the boat. Later, Gerrit Willem and Jan Berend successfully emigrated to the United States and settled in Sheboygan County. Jan Berend told the story of the boating accident to his pastor, Rev. Roth, who submitted the story to one of the Dutch newspapers. I have not been able to find the story." - Barry L. Wynveen, great-grandson of Jan Willem Wynveen.

Parents named as Garrit Willem Wijnveene, age 27, and Elsken Huinink, age 31, in birth record.

87 "J.P. Sweet", age 58 in 1860 census of Batavia, Kane IL and "James P. Sweet" 67 in 1870 census of Niles (1st ward), Berrien MI. The list of children here is from those two census records - the 1860 IL page is difficult to read and some of the names and ages may by incorrect (as transcribed by me). The 1870 census page is very readable. Possibility that the same child may be listed twice here because of the difficulty in reading the 1860 census (Lorona or Lucretia in 1860 may be the Sedana in 1870 - and the ever present possibility that a child may be listed by one name one year and another name another year (middle and first names used interchangeably sometimes)). Despite the difficulty in reading the 1860 page, this is the same family who resided at Niles in 1870 - J.P. = James P., wife named Polly, daughters named Diana and Sally in both records, and son Clark Wilkerson Sweet died at Niles MI. As noted in James' father 'Unknown Sweet's' notes I don't know James to have been a brother of either Henry ("Huey") or Benjamin. I have no proof that any of them were brothers to each other, just a batch of coincidences which makes it seem likely they were related in some way and I am attaching them together in my file to keep track of further info.

The family may have been at Stephentown, Rensselaer NY in 1850. Details of that census are close enough to think it is, but not enough to say definitely - and some of the names not real easy to make out (see details in 1850 Census Event record). 
Sweet, James P. (I12200)
88 "Jacob H. STEARNS, md. Cynthia Manahan, and settled in Ohio" (Stearns genealogy - source citation). Records in Ohio give his middle initial and "L". J.L. and Cynthia Stearns at Cleveland, Cuyahoga OH (1st ward) in the 1850 census. "J.L." age 30 b. NY, a grocer; Cynthia age 37 b. NY. Living with them a Stephen E. "Manohan" age 8 b. OH. In 1860 Jacob Stearns age 40 b NY, Cynthia N. age 46 b. NY and S. Hannahan age 18 b. OH at Amherst, Lorain OH. In 1870 Jacob and Cynthia at Middleton, Wood OH. In 1880 Jacob L. age 60 farmer, b. NY parents from MA & NY, Cynthia age 67 b. NY both parents from NY, and "granddaughter" Myrtte age 14 b. OH both parents from OH at Middleton, Wood OH.

'Marriage records, 1810-1941 Ohio, Probate Court (Cuyahoga Co)', transcribed by the LDS, lists the marriage of Jacob L. Stearnes and Cynthia M. Manahan on 3 Mar 1847 in Cuyahoga Co OH. From this, and the census records, it would seem that Jacob was Cynthia's 2nd marriage, that she was previously married to a Manahan and had a son Stephen from that marriage. Jacob and Cynthia may not have had any children (none listed in the 1860 census). These records also give Jacob's middle initial as "L" rather than "H" (possible his middle name was Lepper, his mother's maiden name).

91 "John Harwood was a citizen of London, England, and belonged to a family that it would appear had long been settled in London. It is thought that he never came to America, or if he came, returned later to England and died in London. There was a John Harwood who with Dorothy, his wife, was a resident of London at that time. His will was dated Feb 16, 1653 and proved Feb 8, 1654, showing that he died between those dates. In the will he mentions only two sons, Nathaniel and John, and a daughter Anne. His wife Dorothy proved the will and had under it a tenement in Cranley, Surrey. We have not, of course, positive proof that John Harwood, who was father to the brothers and sister who settled in New England, was the same as the one who died in 1654, but it seems very probable that he was the same, as the time and place and names all favor such a conclusion." - Harwood Genealogy Vol. III.

92 "John Lewis, of Haverford, mason, married, 1725, Katherine Roberts, daughter of Abel and Mary Roberts, of Radnor, born 8, 28, 1702." - History of Chester County, Pennsylvania by John Smith Futhey, Gilbert Cope. p. 634

Radnor MM records
Catherine Daughter of Abel & Mary Roberts was born 18day 8mo, 1702
Catherine Daughter of Abel & Mary Roberts was born 8day 8mo, 1702
I'm using the earliest of the two Meeting records dates rather than Futhey and Cope's date. The dates are assumed to be Old Style.

Catherine Lewis wrote her will on 27 Jul 1778 describing herself as "widow of John Lewis late of Radnor township in the County of Chester". She left twenty pounds to be shared by her son Abel's three children, twenty pounds to be shared by her daughter Mary's four daughters, twenty pounds to her son Samuel, and twenty pounds each to her daughters Rachel and Elizabeth. She specified several interesting bequests, many involving yarn and cloth: her clothes press to her son John, his son Abel to have the Half Johannes [gold coins] lent to his father, an Oval Table to her granddaughter Tace as well as two blankets made of the yarn in the house, the dressing and weaving of which were to be paid for by John. The remainder of the yarn was to be put towards clothing her grandson Samuel as should the cloth in the house excepting enough fo her daughter Rachl's son John to have a jacket. Her son Samuel was to have his father's clothes, his daughter Catherine was to have a Feather Bed, Catherine's granddaughter, Catherine, by her daughter Rachel, was have another Feather Bed. Her son Evan was to have, "the Horse, Bees, Iron Bar and & His also my share of the grain he giving thereof to my daughter Rachel at his discretion the Rest & Residue of my estate not above bequeathed I give to my two daughters Rachel McCalough & Elizabeth Tucker to be equally divided between them both."

The transcriber of Catherine's will spelled her name, which she authorized with her mark, with a C rather than the K seen in most genealogies. For that reason I'm using her name with a C.

The Genealogy of the Family of Henry Lewis gives Catherine's death year as 1781 but her will was proved on 11 Jan 1779.

93 "John Sharples arrived, with his family, from Hatherton in Cheshire England on 14 Aug 1682 (old style) and settled on Ridley Creek near Chester."

"John Sharples of Ratherton in Cheshire England married Jane Moor of the same place in the year 1662. In the year 1682 the family removed to Pennsylvania, landing at Chester on the 14th day of the 6th month 1682, more than two months prior to the arrival of William Penn."

(a) Culleton indicates that JOHN was age 33 in 1513, hence born ca. 1480 and proposes that he was the son of ROBERTI LOWTHROP, also of Cherry Burton.

99 "Left Canada and went to Michigan and from there to Iowa, where he was when last heard from" according to one source. The memorial page to his father Jeremiah at contains a biographical sketch of Francis Drake Sheldon from 'Portrait and Biographical Album, Henry County, Iowa' (pub. 1888 - pages 254-255):
FRANCIS DRAKE SHELDON, farmer. Perhaps no man in Salem Township is more widely known, or is considered more of a peculiar character, than the gentleman named above. He was born in Leeds County, Canada, Dec. 26, 1809, and is a son of Jeremiah and Experience (Fuller) Sheldon. They were natives of Pittsford, Conn. [correction: Pittsford, Rutland VT], and emigrated to Canada several years be¬fore the birth of our subject. For many years before his marriage, and as long as he remained in Connecticut, Jeremiah Sheldon was a Lieutenant in the regular army. The eldest son, Horace, was born before the family removed to Canada, where the father purchased a farm, upon which Riley, Rustin W., Amelia, Richard, Francis D., Jane, Alexander and Experience, were born.

The parents both died on this farm, their children being grown and well educated prior to that time. Our subject fell from a tree when seventeen years of age, and broke both his wrists, which practically disabled him for farm work, but his father being in somewhat straightened circumstances, the son determined to shift for himself. He attended school for three years, and paid both for board and tuition, and when twenty-one years old began teaching, which he continued for three years. Not liking that profession, in 1823 he began clerking in a store, and in 1826 was married to Sarah, a daughter of Sheldon and Olive Stoddard, the former a member of the firm of Hartwell & Stoddard, in whose employ he had been.

Francis Sheldon had economized and saved money enough to purchase a farm at Rideau Lake, near Beverly, and the domestic life of the young couple was begun on this farm. The father of Mrs. Sheldon was, in his day, a very wealthy man, who owned extensive mills, and shipped large quantities of lumber to Quebec; and was also engaged in the mercantile trade. Later, they removed to Porter County, Ind., where they both died. One daughter, Olive, now deceased, graced the union of our subject and wife before they became residents of the United States. Their removal was made to Porter County, Ind., about 1836, and the next year they went to Cass County, Mich., where Mr. Sheldon purchased a farm. In Porter County, Ind., a son, Franklin, was born, who wedded Mary Vaughn, and at the time of his death, Dec. 19, 1883, was the editor of the McPherson (Kan.) Free Thinker. Olivia, the second daughter, now deceased, was born in Michigan. She became the wife of William M. Carter, of Lee County, Iowa.

Mr. Sheldon had erected a new house on his farm in Cass County, Mich., and after it was cleaned and ready to move into, the cabin caught fire and burned to the ground with all its contents. This was a severe loss to the young couple, as it swept away all their earnings; so they returned to Indiana, where the death of Mrs. Sheldon occurred the next year, Dec. 9, 1841. While a resident of Canada, our subject embraced the doctrine of the Friends, and for a term of years was a prominent member of that society. After the division in that body regarding slavery, Mr. Sheldon still remained in the church, though in sentiment he was an Abolitionist. He labored faithfully in the society even after his removal from Michigan, and after the death of his wife, returned to Cass County, Mich., and taught a monthly meeting school. The next year he returned to Canada, and while there was married to Miss Charlotte Booth. She was a daughter of Isaac and Thursey (Wing) Booth, whom, as is well authenticated, bore in their veins royal blood. Her father was born in Orange County, and her mother in Dutchess County, N. Y., but their parents were natives of England. Mr. and Mrs. Booth settled on a farm in Canada, and there their children grew to maturity. Charles, the eldest son, was a well-known surveyor, and also taught school, as did Mrs. Sheldon before her marriage. Her mother bore fifteen children, nine reaching maturity— Anna, Elizabeth, Caroline, May, Rebecca, Charlotte, Charles, James and Daniel. Mrs. Sheldon is the only one living, and was born July 9, 1822.

After their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Sheldon lived for three years in Cass County, Mich., and in 1845 came to Lee County, Iowa, where he purchased a farm. For many years after his coming to Iowa, Mr. Sheldon labored earnestly in the Society of Friends, but after careful consideration of the subject, aided by a liberal and intelligent study of moral and Divine law, he and his wife (who was born in that faith) asked for a discontinuance of their membership. Having fully investigated the subject, both have allied themselves with the great body of materialists, and with all their former zeal are now laboring for the welfare of their fellow-men. In 1878 they became residents of Salem, where they have a neat cottage on a nice little farm inside of the corporation. Six daughters and three sons have graced their union: Sarah, the wife of Charles Brown, a farmer of Henry County; Thursey wedded to Hiram H. Root, a farmer in Colorado; Hoag B. was a soldier during the late war, belonging to an Iowa regiment, and was wounded at the battle of Atlanta, but recovered, and is now a resident of Mesa County, Col., and is a bachelor; Rebecca is the widow of James South, and resides in Lee County, Iowa; Experience is the wife of Elihu Bond, and resides in Dawson County, Neb.; Rachel is the wife of Lemuel Kenley, a resident of the same county; Charles W. married Minnie Stamper. and resides in this township; Olive is the wife of William M. Steward, a farmer of Henry County; Franklin Sheldon, the other son, was also a soldier in the late war, serving three years, a part of which time he was connected with the hospital staff.

Mr. Sheldon and his wife, by reason of their long residence in the State, and their unswerving uprightness of character here, are entitled to and have the respect and esteem of the people who know them.
