Ancestors of Sibyl Milholland



First Generation






1. Sibyl Milholland,1 daughter of John Harrison Milholland and Dorothy Alberta Brabb, was born on 16 Oct 1919 in Buhl, Twin Falls, Idaho, died on 4 Apr 2005 in Baldwin Park (Vista Specialty Hospital San Gabriel Valley), Los Angeles, California at age 85, and was buried ashes to be scattered near Sweetwater Ranch, Lyon, Nevada.

Noted events in her life were:

• Early Life:The following is Mama's story by me, Darlene Grace Leggitt, her oldest daughter, written in the third person, as best as I can recall:

Sibyl Milholland and Earl Osborne met at Hermosa Beach, CA where they were part of the National Youth Administration program which was started by President Roosevelt to help the youth of America. They married in 1939 on Christmas Eve in Fresno, CA. They choose Christmas Eve, as the church was already decorated for Christmas and there was no need to order flowers. Money was tight.

Their home was quite small, one room served as the kitchen, living and dining room. They had to crawl through a window to get into the bedroom.

• Children: Their first child was born in Fresno, California on January 20,1941. They named her Darlene Grace. Eighteen months later, July 30, 1942, their second child was born, Daniel Earl.

The family eventually moved to Sacramento where they bought a small home on Bell Street. There was enough land to allow them to have a milk cow and chickens. Earl worked for the government on airplane carburetors. World War II was going strong and Earl went down to join the Army. Because of his government work, the fact that he had two children and one kidney, he was denied. Sibyl was a stay at home Mom, taking very good care of her family. She was a great cook and also did a lot of sewing.

• Fulton Avenue: In about 1949 they bought a piece of property on Fulton Avenue. The family and their dog Cinder, moved into a trailer and a single room building on the property. It was a beautiful place to raise their family….a big old oak tree in front and a creek full of ducks running through the property. Sibyl and Earl began work on adding the family room, dining room kitchen and their bedroom to the existing building on the property. The building was converted into Darlene and Danny's bedroom and a bathroom. The new addition was made of adobe with a knotty pine interior. The front door to the home had two large blue windows, one on each side.

Sibyl was a Brownie troop leader, keeping busy creating projects for the girls. She was very good with children and they all loved her.

She kept them busy with the projects, one making a baby cradle out of the round Quaker Oats cardboard container. After cutting the box to resemble a rocking cradle, each girl got to choose what fabric they wanted to cover it with.

One summer Earl decided to go into the insurance business with The Farmer's Insurance Company. He needed help in the office so Sibyl worked in the office taking calls, making appointments and keeping the office in order. During this time, they sent Darlene and Danny to a home during the week where they would be taken care of. Even tho the lady and the home were quite nice, Darlene and Danny hated it, counting the days until Friday when they would see their Mom and Dad driving up the driveway to pick them up and take them home for the weekend. The time flew and before they knew it, Sunday night had arrived and it was time for the trip back to the baby sitter.

This arrangement ended up not working out. It was hard on the whole family so Earl went back to work for the government.

In an effort to bring addition money into the family, they purchased a male and female Chinchilla. It was the big thing going then and many people were getting into the business. Just before the crash of the Chinchilla business, they sold out, breaking even. Darlene still remembers watching her parents dancing with glee and throwing the money into the air. Many people lost everything.

• Band: Earl started a band and played every Saturday night.

• Kathleen: On August 4, 1951, Sibyl gave birth to Kathleen, Renee. Darlene and Danny waited anxiously in the car, while their Dad went into the hospital to gather up their Mom and the new baby.

The family vacations were usually up to Yerington, Nevada where they visited Earl's family and down to Chula Vista, California where they visited Sibyl's family.

Not long after Kathleen was born, the family bought 12 acres in Rio Linda. Earl continued to work for the government, play in the band and now grow hay on a portion of the land. Sibyl continued to care for her family cooking great dinners and sewing new cloths for them.

The family got their first television and on many occasions the family would awake very early in the morning to watch the atomic bomb being exploded in the Nevada desert.

Two years after moving to Rio Linda, Sibyl's life fell apart. Earl had found someone new and had made the decision to leave his family.

Even tho Sibyl was devastated, she gathered her family and moved them to Fresno California where she could be near her sister Eileen.

She took in ironing and did housework to help with expenses.

• Yosemite: While in Fresno, Sibyl with her three children and her friend Elva Cole with her daughter and mother, decided to take a vacation in Yosemite National Park. They rented a tent. This was in the days before the pop up's. It was a heavy canvas tent that could sleep six. They also rented cots and a cooking stove. Sibyl and Elva struggling with the heavy canvas and with the help of the kids finally got the tent set up. After putting the camp in order they began exploring Yosemite. Darlene and Danny slept in the car while everyone else slept in the tent. This was a real happy time for her and her children.

• Chula Vista: Sibyl and her children took a couple of trips on the train to San Diego to visit her parents, John and Dorothy Milholland, who lived in Chula Vista, California.

In about 1954 Sibyl decided that she wanted to be closer to her parents, so the family again packed up and made the move to, National City, not far from Chula Vista.

Shortly after, the family moved to Nestor, a small community near the Mexican border. The family settled into their small home, attending church every Sunday. Darlene and Danny began school at the Southwest Junior High School and Sibyl continued taking in ironing and doing house work. In an effort to save money, the family would periodically take trips into Mexico to get Danny's hair cut and to fill the car up with gas. This all came to an abrupt end when she not knowingly parked in front of a house of ill repute, which was next to the barber shop. She walked Danny into the barber shop and came back to the car to stay with Darlene and Kathleen. She was shocked to see the activity taking place right in front of car. As soon as Danny was done at the barber, she headed out of town, never to return.

Sibyl wanted to find a father for her kids remarrying several times. Sadly none of these marriages worked out and after several moves she and her family returned to the original home in Nestor.

• Nevada visit: On a couple of occasions she took the family to Yerington, Nevada to spend time with Earl's Mother Grace, who she called Momda. The children enjoyed these visits with their Grandma Dini. They could sit in the living room by the hour, listening to her play the piano, always with a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye. Momda and Sibyl, (she called her button) had a very strong bond and seeing them together it was clear that they loved each other.

• Hard times: Money was always quite tight but Sibyl would go beyond the call of duty to see that her kids had what was needed. On one occasion, she sold her accordion to buy a dress for Darlene which was needed for one of the school functions. Her children were top priority in her mind and actions. She tried her best to make her kids happy, scrimping to save money so she could take them places. On one occasion she was going to take them to the circus. The family dressed in their best, piled into the car and drove to the circus. Upon turning into the parking lot there was something very very wrong. The parking lot was totally void of cars. It seemed she had gotten the date wrong and the circus was long gone. She was so devastated. The children did their best to make her feel better.

Sibyl was very protective of her children. This was probably one of the reason's Danny at age 15 left his mom and sisters and went to live with his dad. At one point, Danny returned to his mom and his sisters. His mom did everything she could to help make him happy, even giving up her room for him and moving in with Darlene and Kathleen. He became restless again and moved back to be with his dad. Sibyl was deeply saddened by this. She had lost her husband and now she felt she had lost her son. Of course she hadn't lost her son but she didn't realize that then.

• Square dancing: Sibyl loved to square dance and she was very good at it. She made all of her beautiful outfits. Her parents lived and worked for a household above Mission Valley and they would come to stay with Sibyl and her family on the weekends. This worked out real well for Sibyl as she did not have to worry about leaving her kids home alone while she went to the dance. Even tho her daughter Darlene was 16, she was afraid to leave the sisters home alone. Yes, it did seem she was over protective, however she feared that someone could take her family from her if she was, for what ever, accused to be an unfit Mother. Her family was her life and she was not about to put this at risk.

• Darlene marries: At age 17, Danny got special permission from his Dad and joined the Navy. At age 18, Darlene married Bruce Osterberg in Yuma, Arizona. Bruce had joined the Army and was being sent to El Paso, Texas for training. Sibyl scraped enough money together to buy Darlene a new dress for the wedding, a bouquet of flowers for her to carry and flowers for Darlene and Bruce's reception that was held in the home of Sibyl's brother and sister in law, Kenny and Karin Milholland.

Bruce went onto El Paso and Darlene remained with her mother and sister until June, 1959 when she graduated from Mar Vista High School. Darlene went to El Paso to be with her new husband. Sibyl was not able to keep the home in Nester. She no longer had child support for Danny and Darlene and had to find a much less expensive home for her and Kathleen.

• El Paso: In the summer of 1959, Sibyl, Kathleen and Danny (who would be leaving for the Navy soon) drove to El Paso to visit Darlene and Bruce. It was such a great visit for them all. They took a day trip up to see the Carlsbad Caverns and all were totally taken back by their beauty.

• Spring 1960: In the spring of 1960 Sibyl and Kathleen moved to El Paso to live with Darlene and Bruce. They had a nice two bedroom apartment with plenty of room for the four of them. However Darlene was pregnant and soon they moved into two separate apartments in the same complex.

• Bakery: Sibyl got a job at a bakery and was very content and happy at work. She enjoyed being near her daughter and being able to watch her go through the pregnancy.

• Jess: Darlene gave birth to a healthy baby boy on December 21, 1960. He was named Jess, Howard. Sibyl so enjoyed helping Darlene care for her new grandson and was so proud to be a grandma. Kathleen was equally happy to be an aunt.

Three months from Jess's birth, Bruce received his orders and was being sent to Okinawa. After Bruce, Darlene and Jess set out for California, Sibyl and Kathleen were on her own in El Paso Texas for a while. After a short time she and Kathleen returned to California. They settled in El Cajon near her parents. She got a job at J. J. Newberry, in charge of the Men and Boy Department.


• Father dies: On December 9, 1961, her father John Harrison Milholland died.

• San Diego: Sibyl, Kathleen and Dorothy, her mother, lived together. In the fall of 1962, after Bruce returned from Okinawa, the family moved to El Cajon. Bruce enrolled at San Diego State. Sibyl quit her job and recommended Darlene for the position. While Darlene was at work and Bruce at college, Sibyl cared for her grandson, Jess.

With San Diego in a major recession in 1963, jobs were at a premium. When Bruce graduated from San Diego State he needed to take his family to Los Angeles, where he and Darlene could find employment so that he could continue his education at UCLA

• Valley Hospital: Sibyl was able to get a job at the El Cajon Valley Hospital working in the kitchen. She was very happy there. She made lots of friends. Unfortunately, the pay was not the greatest and eventually, Sibyl, Kathleen and her mother Dorothy moved into the only apartment they could afford. It was located in an alley in down town El Cajon.

• Meets Bob: Unfortunately Kathleen and her grandma did not get along. Eventually, Kathleen decided she wanted to go live with her dad. This, of course, hurt Sibyl but she knew that Kathleen would probably be better off with her dad. She would live in a nice house, and would have her own bedroom. Sibyl being the loving mother that she was gave Kathleen a big going away party.

Falling ill with Hepatitis B, Sibyl was forced to quit her job and was bed ridden for months. After she got well, she began to go to square dancing again.

Here she met Bob Walsh and they began attending the dances together. She was so happy. Bob was born on April 15, 1908. He joined the Army but was never sent to war. His early life was spent working as a cowboy on ranches. He had appreciation for finer things, and had many pieces of fine crystal and silver that he gave Sibyl when they met.

• Baker: Sibyl was a great baker. She made countless cakes for her family and friends for their birthdays and weddings. Each cake was full of her love for whomever she was baking and decorating it.

• Marrys Bob: On the thirty-first of May, Bob Walsh and Sibyl Osborne got married at the First Church of God in El Cajon, California. It was a joyous occasion and everyone was so very happy for both of them.

A week after the marriage, Bob was diagnosed with cancer. That didn't stop them. They lived the next eight and a half years with gusto, traveling the United States in their camper. Some times, they even brought Sibyl's mother with them. They shoved more happiness in that time than many people have in a life time

• Sweetwater Ranch.: They moved to Nevada, to live on the Sweetwater Ranch with Earl's sister, Ellen Sceirine. They stayed in a little cabin on the property. Bob did odd jobs around the ranch and Sibyl helped where she could. They still took little trips in their camper; however it became too difficult for Bob to get in and out of it. They bought a trailer, giving them more room. Unfortunately, Bob became very ill and they never did get to take a trip in it. They did however go out and sit in it pretending they were on a trip.

In time, Bob became so ill that he had to be taken to the hospital in Reno. Sibyl stayed in the camper in the hospital parking lot. On November 18, 1981, Bob lost his battle with cancer and was gone.

• Ashes: Sibyl carried Bob's ashes to the top of a hill near the Sweetwater Ranch. Alone, she opened the box and released the ashes into the wind. Imagine her alarm when pieces of bone dropped onto the sand at her feet. Later, her son Danny collected these pieces and placed them in a container and buried it there.

• El Cajon: After selling the trailer, Sibyl moved back to El Cajon and took an apartment with her Mother, who was now in failing health. She took on the responsibility to care for her mother who was now becoming a little difficult to live with. Sibyl ignored the negatives and accepted her responsibility to make her mother's life as comfortable as it could be. They visited her daughter Darlene, in Poway, now divorced, on many occasions. During this period, lots of dinners, picnics, attending the Poway Rodeo, and of course holidays were enjoyed by Sibyl, her mother and her family.

Sibyl, even with the loss of her love Bob, continued to be a very positive and happy person. All of her family loved to be with her as her smile made them feel happy and loved.

In 1984, Dorothy became very hard for Sibyl to care for. Eileen, Sibyl's youngest sister decided it was time to move Dorothy up to Fremont, California to live with her.

No longer responsible for her mother, Sibyl, made arrangement to travel to the Forester's Haven in Mount Dora, Florida. She sold all of her possessions except the clothes she had. Darlene sent her off to Florida from the San Diego airport in 1984. She was a very young 65 year old lady, with great expectations on entering a new life. And that she did.

The Foresters was a retirement home with all of the activities, beautiful apartments for the residents, a dining room, doctors and nurses, even an allowance. Sibyl had bought the policy many years prior and boy did her investment pay off. She would be taken care of for the rest of her life. Such a deal.

• Foresters: She was so very happy there, making lots of friends and having so much fun. She joined in the band, playing the drums, joined into the bells group, joined the crafts class, making beautiful things for her family. Her most memorable items were the clocks she designed and built from slices of trees, which she varnished, and decorated with the appropriate numbers and hands. These were prized gifts for the newly weds. She also became very talented with figurines, many angels and other forms of art that she matched with her family's interest.

Her visits with each of her children were cherished events. Not only for her but the family she was visiting. She loved to help, cook, dust, clean and iron. She didn't get the concept of 'wash & wear'. She missed doing these things and loved being able to do them when she was a guest in her family's homes.


• Mother dies: On January 3, 1986, after a long period of illness, Dorothy Alberta Milholland passed away. Sibyl never got over the feeling that she should have been stronger and remained in El Cajon to care for her mother. Her family however, knew that this would have been too hard on her.

Sibyl was able to make the trip from Florida to San Diego to attend her Memorial service.

Darlene and Roy flew her to San Diego, so she could attend their wedding on April 26, 1987. She arrived early so that she could help in the preparations. The wedding was held in their back yard, so there was lots to do before hand.

In October of 1988, Darlene and Roy traveled to Florida. They got her a hotel room and took her to Epcott Center and Disney World. She sure did enjoy herself and was almost little girl like, as we went from one ride to the next. After taking her back home, Darlene and Roy drove to Miami to catch the cruise ship to the Caribbean.

• Joe: While in Florida, Sibyl met Joe Pufka, one of the residents. She and Joe spent a lot of time together and eventually got married in June of 1991. Her daughter Darlene traveled back to attend the wedding. Joe's daughter and husband also attended the ceremony. The Haven put on a beautiful wedding and reception for them.

Joe was quite a bit older than Sibyl and soon it became apparent that they needed to move to the Foresters Haven in San Fernando Valley, California before he become too ill to make the move. The rule was, if you wanted to join the Foresters in San Fernando, you needed to be well enough to make the trip. It was very important to Sibyl as she wanted to be on the west coast, closer to her family.

Joe was of the old school, born in Poland. He was a very domineering person, keeping Sibyl on a short leash. Even tho she loved him, in time this became very hard for her to accept. Her daughter Darlene, visited from San Diego once a month and tried to help her mother get through the situation, but eventually it became apparent, Sibyl was so unhappy, it was affecting her quality of life. She had no say in her life or actions. After struggling with this for many months, she decided to divorce Joe.

Even tho they were divorced and were living in separate apartments, she never stopped caring for him. She visited him every day making sure that he had what he needed. Basically, she continued to take care of him as a wife….she just wasn't living with him. They got along wonderfully from that time on. She remained his best friend until he died.

• Washington: Sibyl enjoyed her life at the Foresters. Her family visited and brought her to visit them many times. In the summer of 1997, Darlene and her husband Roy Leggitt flew Sibyl to Washington D.C. They rented her a cabin at the RV park they were staying. She was so happy, having her own little home that she could enjoy. They felt so lucky to get a tour of the White House. She was totally overwhelmed with the fact that she was actually in the White House, walking the halls where the President's walked. She got a kick out of watching the men in black suits talking into their watches. The next stop was the Capital Building. Her eyes widened with amazement as she and the Leggitt's sat in the gallery of the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives watching speeches from the floor. At the Vietnam Wall she slowly walked, taking in all of the names she could. At the Memorial for World War II, she stood, looking for a very long time at the life size men in full battle garb, frozen in time.

• Co-pilot: She so enjoyed being the co-pilot in Roy and Darlene's Motor Home. She really enjoyed being able to watch the world go by from her front row seat.

She was able to visit her daughter Kathleen and husband Vic Deaton in Huntsville, Arkansas. They live on 40 acres of mostly virgin land. On one visit, she caught a huge fish out of their pond. After having a picture taken to prove the catch, they released the granddaddy back to his watery home.

• Acton: It became a tradition in the last several years of her life for her children to gather at Acton, California to spend several days, with her at the Thousand Trails Camp ground. A couple of trailers would be rented to house her daughter Kathleen and husband Vic who had driven over from Arkansas and of course Sibyl. Her son Danny and wife Haydee would drive down from Nevada in their RV. Her daughter Darlene and her husband Roy would be there in their motor home. Her grandson Jess and family along with her ex-son-in-law Bruce with Teri would drive up from San Diego. She was the reason for the gathering and every one enjoyed her so very much. It was a pleasure for all of her family to be able to enjoy this special time with her.

• 84th birthday: An effort was made to celebrate her birthdays with her family in the San Diego, however, due to her health not every one was celebrated with a big party. The last big party, October 16, 2003, her 84th birthday, was celebrated at Bruce Osterberg and Teri's home. Her family and several friends were able to join in the celebration. It was a wonderful day, and she truly enjoyed seeing her children, grandchildren, great grandson, nieces and friends.

Four months after her 84th birthday, February, 2004, she fell very ill with lung infections. Darlene and husband Roy, being retired and living in a motor home, were able to stay in the area, allowing Darlene to be with her. She regained her strength and was able to return home after Easter.

The Forester's sold their contract to care of their residents to The Kensington located in Alhambra. Darlene had helped her pack up many of her things in preparation for big move. Sibyl was looking forward to her new home and having a new apartment.

In August, 2004, she fell gravely ill. Near death, she was put on a respirator, and put in an induced coma for over two weeks. It was discovered she had mold growing in her lungs. She fought her way back and was finally released from the hospital after over six weeks. She was the last resident from the Foresters to be admitted to The Kensington. She was not well enough to go to her new apartment and was put into their Health Care Unit, where she had 24 hour nurse assistance. She was anxious to get to her new apartment, but was aware that she needed to get a lot better before that would happen.

• The end: Her planned 85th birthday party at grandson's Jess and Karin's home had to be cancelled. She was too weak and sick to travel. Jess's family drove up from Poway. They along with Roy and Darlene took her out to dinner to celebrate her birthday. She was so very weak but the trooper she was, managed to enjoy her day.

Between Christmas and New Year, she took a fall, breaking her arm and hip. At the time, it was not realized that she had broken the hip but on January, 2, she began bleeding internally and was taken to the hospital.

There, it was discovered that she had a broken hip. Her hip was replaced. Sadly, she was never able to use it. She was so weak that she would not get the rehabilitation sessions necessary to get her up and walking.

Darlene was told that her mama was losing ground, not able to eat. Her doctor suggested inserting a feeding tub in hopes of getting her strength back. After discussing this with her siblings, it was decided to give it a try. Sadly, Sibyl's immune system was at this point non existent, her quality of life, also non existent. Soon the infections were coming faster than they could be dealt with. She spent most of the time sleeping, too weak to awake.

Sibyl fought the good fight. Even tho suffering, she managed a smile or a wink now and then. Sometimes so weak that her “I love you” was just moving her lips.

She told Darlene that she had dreams that she had passed and was on her way up to heaven when she would awake.

One day, the nurse came in to administer more antibiotics, and found that the needle was no longer working and she would have to redo it. Sibyl said, “Guess I blew out another one”. The nurse thought that was so cute. She began trying to get another needle in place, having success on the third try. Sibyl said to her daughter Darlene, “I wish they would just stop. I'm so tired”. Darlene asked her, “Mama, are you ready to go he heaven?” After a pause, Sibyl replied, “Maybe not quite yet.” She was aware that her son Danny and wife Haydee were coming to see her the next weekend. She was able to say “I love you” to each of her children before she died.

In one of Darlene's conversations with her mama, Sibyl, she talked about being with her mother, father, siblings Arlone, Eileen, Kenny and especially her special Bob. She almost seemed anxious to join them.

On April 4, 2005, her heart, growing very tired after trying to keep her body working as it tried to fight off the infections that were consuming it, finally stopped. She fell into an everlasting sleep, allowing her spirit to begin the journey into heaven to be with her family and friends who had made the journey before her.

All of her family and friends know she is with her Lord. She truly believed in her Lord and that she would be with him one day. She is truly missed by those of us still here on earth.

• Correspondence: This concludes the report celebrating Sibyl Walsh's life and ancestry. Following are several pieces of correspondence exchanged by various family members shortly before and after her death.

• Her daughter Kathleen: It seems that the majority of my happy and interesting Mama memories had to do with traveling by car from California to Nevada to visit Grandma Dini and the rest of the family there. Singing was common and I will never be able to hear “My Wild Irish Rose” without thinking of Mama.

I wanted her to stop at every souvenir shop and roadside attraction along the way. The reptile houses were cool, but the best ever was the mummified mother and baby supposedly found in the desert and was displayed for all to see. The mother had her arm around the child, trying to protect it to the end. That picture has stuck with me all these years.

In the summer of 1959 on a trip to El Paso to visit Darlene and Bruce, Mama may have wondered if she, Danny & I were going to end up that way too. We drove right into a really bad sand storm. Visibility was just about zero and Mama had to breathe into a cup of ice just to be able to breathe at all. Thinking back on how claustrophobic she was, the whole episode must have been nearly unbearable. But she hung in there and got us through it all safe and sound. I remember Danny & me laughing about how we could write our names on our sand-covered arms and on every inch inside the car. We thought it was quite an adventure. It's a wonder she didn't kick us out and make us walk the rest of the way.

Then there was the trip where I woke up in the middle of the night, we were pulled over to the side of the road and Mama was nowhere to be found. After the initial panic, I saw her outside by a refrigerated big rig. Our radiator had developed a hole and she and the driver were catching the melting water from the truck in cups and then pouring it into the radiator. It was enough to get us to the next town where we were taken in by the mechanic and his wife until the auto shops opened two days later. I cannot recall their names, but I know that all three remained friends for the rest of their lives.

It seems I have always loved horses and Mama would pull to the side of the road whenever she could so I could pet them across a fence. And if there were pony rides, no way would I let her go by without my getting my turn on one. She was so happy a couple years ago when I told her I had bought horses for Jessica and myself. It really pleased her to know that I could pet my Molly girl whenever I wanted.

Watching Mama square dance was another fun memory. She looked so very pretty and happy as she whirled around the dance floor. She was quite the dancer. And I loved her square dance outfits with their poofy slips.

Mama was so proud of being a member of Tony Orlando's fan club, Tony's Troops. She was able to see Tony perform just once, but what a wonderful time it was for her. During the "Boogie Tonight" segment, Tony chose Mama to Boogie with up the theater aisle and did not know at that time that she was my Mom. He said later he could just tell that she would be fun. What a great picture, Tony with his top hat with Mama on his arm. They were really strutting their stuff! And then backstage when I started to take her picture with Tony, he picked her up in his arms!! She was such a tiny little thing, but you should have seen her gigantic smile! I had that picture enlarged and framed, and she had it up in her apartment at the Haven until her "friends" there made her feel as though she was being too uppity by keeping it so visible.(I always just figured they were envious of Mama's zest for life and her sunny disposition. How sad for them.) Tony, who called her Mom for the rest of the evening, and everyone at the theater was so gracious to her. She told me later, that was one of the most memorable nights of her life. And when I would call her, she would never fail to ask how Tony was doing. He, his family, and the Troopers were saddened to hear of her passing.

Mama loved us all so very much, and she did all she could to take care of us the best she knew how. She worked hard all of her life to make sure we kids had clothes to wear, a roof over our heads and food on the table. It wasn't until I became an adult that I realized just how much she sacrificed for us. As she said during one of our talks, she made mistakes, but at the time she did the best she could and what she thought was right, and she always loved us. Then she smiled and said she must not have done too bad a job, because just look how well her kids turned out. I pray she realizes now just how much I appreciate all she did and how much I love her and miss her. The day that I am called home to our Lord, I know Mama will be there too, with a smile on her face and arms open wide.

Her loving daughter Kathleen

• Her son Danny: The following are some of my memories of Mom:

I can remember back when us kids were young how she used to go without so we could have clothes on our back and food in our bellies. She would wear the same dresses and shoes for years, but we would always have new cloths to wear every year. I can still see her standing at the ironing board all day trying to make money to make ends meet. She could have gone out and got another job doing something she liked but she wanted to stay home so she could be home when we came home from school or when we were out of school.

When I was younger, I could never figure out why Mom would not go bonkers because of all of the negative things that would happen to her in her life. We kids and even when we were older adults would let things bother us and act accordingly. But not mom. she has so much faith that she would always give it to the Lord. I asked her one time in one of her crises, how she could not get angry or complain or something. She told me that what good did it do and that the Lord will take care of it.

Mom was always there for us. She was there when I went on my first liberty in boot camp, when I graduated from the Naval Training Center in San Diego, at every orchestra or band recital in school. Even lined the road when Darlene and I were in the marching bands. I can not think of one time when she was not there for us.

I can remember the time when all of us lived in Nester in the big white house with the red roof. I was going through typical early teen stuff with the attitude and all. I really don't remember what it was about but I guess Mom asked me to do something and I did not think it was my job, and she was chewing me out and I was so angry I turned away from her and walked away. She told me to stop and I did not so she tackled me and we both went to the floor. After that I just tried to get away because I did not want to hurt her. I finally said, ok Mom I give. Later on we laughed about that for years. She we would say "Danny, remember when I tackled you and made you say I give?"

I don't think there was any better mom then our mom. Her quest for life was to show love and kindness to everybody so they would be happy. She was always so concerned about hurting peoples feeling because that was definitely not on her agenda.

Love Danny

• Her niece Ann Barton: Ann Barton, one of hr nieces, sent an email to Darlene shortly before Mama passed.

Dear Darlene, I'm so sorry about your Mom. I wish she could just get better. She is and always has been my favorite Aunt. When I was small she would come pick me up and take me to McDonalds for a hamburger and I can remember when her and Grandma lived on Vanhouton in El Cajon I used to ride my bike there to visit them before I got my license . I have very good memories of spending time with your Mom and playing Yatzee, oh yeh and lets not forget the wonderful lemon meringue pie. I continue to pray for her and all of your family. Please take care. Love, Ann

• Her grandson Jason Osterberg: Hello all,

It is a very sad day today. I feel sad, not for the passing of one of my most favorite people in the world, but for the loss felt by her kids. Mom, Danny, & Kathleen you have my most deepest sympathy and I send my best wishes for you to be strong and to remember that what makes you the good people that you came right from her.

When I woke up this morning I felt her with me, more so than ever before, She is in the air we breath, The grass that grows and the sun that shines. I have never known anyone with more faith in a higher power than Grams, it was inspiring that anyone could believe so easily what she could not see and I have never known anyone that never seemed to have a bad day, She was also happy and always there for anyone who needed a hug, a smile, or a simple word of encouragement. God Blessed her and she Blessed me... I LOVE YOU ALL

• Her grandson Jess Osterberg: Hi all,

In this sad time I would like to reflect on how Grandma affected my life in a positive way. She always had a smile on her face and a spring in her step. Sometimes it was hard to keep up with her! Every since I can remember Grandma was a great baker. In my childhood it was the animal pancakes; dogs, cats, or anything you asked for. In my teen years it was the bikini cakes and sugar eggs with a collage inside the Easter egg. The most outrageous cake was for my 21st birthday, she took the bikini off the cake! My friends were shocked and amazed that my Grandma baked me a naked cake. You can imagine what was said when everyone ate their piece of cake! When she retired, she went off to Florida and her baking skills went into her crafts. I will cherish our clock and nativity set forever and our ceramic angels look over us every day. When she came back to the west coast to visit she was so excited (beaming) to tell us all about what she did that year. She was very busy doing something different every day, from playing the drums to making clocks out of a slice of tree. She loved to give to others - especially birthdays and Christmas. From the special dollars in the card, to her personalized Christmas ornaments. One memory I will always cherish was last December when Karin, Eric and I went to visit her and took her outside. As sick as she was, she giggled as a squirrel bounced up a tree in front of her.

I know everyone has their own special memories of Grandma. I just wanted to share some of mine.

Love Jess

• Her niece Diana Selph: Well, as I opened up my email this evening, I find that we are not the first ones to share our feelings at the loss of such a beautiful aunt, inside and out. Not everyone can be as lucky as we were to have a such special person as she was in their lives. I have so many wonderful memories as a child, as do our daughters and grandchildren. She never missed sending birthday cards, always with a dollar tucked inside. Many memories swim around in my head right now, but a couple are fairly resent. In 1998 she took a bus from SAC. CA, where she was visiting a good friend of hers, to come visit with us in Fremont, CA. This was not long after my Mom had passed and getting a hug from my aunt was like my Mom was there too sharing that hug. In 2002 Wayne and I went down to visit her at "Forest Haven" for a few days. We asked where she would like to go and right off the bat she said, the "Getty Museum". We were there all day, and if Wayne and I hadn't stopped to rest off and on, she would have just kept going and going. We had dinner at a wonderful restaurant on site, while we watched a beautiful sunset slipping into the ocean. Before we had to head back home the next day, she insisted on fixing us breakfast, pancakes of course, which made her so happy (and our tummies too)! In April 2003 Laurie and I, along with Kai and Brandon, Laurie's two children, drove down to visit for a few days. We brought her to our hotel each day, went out to dinner, or lunch and just had wonderful visits. She could not wait to get away for the day and was always ready and waiting the next day for us to pick her up. We hated to say goodbye that is for sure, but we all went home with more beautiful memories. Sherry and her family were down visiting Disneyland that same year, and on the way home they stopped off to visit with Aunt Sibyl. They took her out to dinner along with a good visit, adding a special memory for Sherry and her two children Kyle and Sarah. The last time I was able to speak with Aunt Sibyl was in November, when I called to tell her we were about ready for our Big move to Ohio. Our phone visit was short because she was getting very tired. So, I told her we loved her very much and of course, with her sweet soft voice said, how much she loved us. We will miss her so very much, her letters, cards, phone visits and hugs more than anyone will every know. She left a love in all our hearts that will be there for ever, a very special, aunt, mom, grandma, great grandma and friend. As my daughter Laurie told her daughter Kai, another angel has been added in Heaven. lots of love, Diana, Wayne and family!!

• Her niece Shirley Lowe: As a young person Aunt Sibyl was always there for me to talk to and to just enjoy and over the years she was just a real joy in my life. I just always loved being around her as she always showed love and she had the greatest smile and laugh. My most recent memories of her though were the times she came to visit us and would stay with my Mom and then we would spend the day together. She loved the ferry ride out of Southport, N.C. across the river to Ft Fisher. We took her to a show in Myrtle Beach twice and it was a joy to see her and Mom having such a wonderful time together. They shared a lot of child hood memories together. She just had a way with Mom and with people that not many people have. She and I had a lot of time on the telephone and shared memories together. I remember also the time that we took Mom to Florida when she was living there. We had rented separate rooms so that they could spend some time together and I know that they had a wonderful time. The time that we went out to California to visit we spent the whole day together and it was really hard for the both of us to say good bye and it was the first time that I had ever seen tears in her eyes. I will always have a special place in my heart for her for she was very special to me as she was to all of us and all who knew her.

Lots of Love
Shirley, John and Family


• Her ex son-in-law Bruce Osterberg: Mom was always a giving person, of things, of love, of warmth, but her most precious gift was of herself to us.
Bruce and Teri

• Her daughter Darlene: Dear Jess, Jason, Diana and Shirley,

I just want to thank all of you for sending your memories, thoughts and love for our Mama.

It's very special to read how much she was loved and appreciated. She had little to give but herself and she gave it freely. I do not believe I have known a more giving person than she. On our shopping trips together, she would stand in the card shop and read every card until it said just the right thing. She was good at picking out the perfect card. After getting it home she would put in a dollar and a pound of her love and send it off. This made her very happy.

Thank you again for your beautiful thoughts that you took the time express.

Love Darlene and Roy


• Letter to Mama's Friends: Sibyl “Charity” Walsh - October 16, 1919 - April 4, 2005


Dear friends of Sibyl Walsh,

This letter is to let you know, my Mama, after being so sick and in and out of the hospital the last 14 months , has gone to be with her Lord.

In February of last year she became very ill and was hospitalized for over a month. She did recover enough to enjoy her family and a few friends at the four day reunion at Acton, California last June.

In August of last year we almost lost her. She was put on a respirator and put into induced comma for over two weeks. One problem was mold in her lungs. She remained in the hospital over six weeks, this time not bouncing back quite as well.

Jess, my oldest son and his family were able to drive up from Poway, California so that we could celebrate her 85th birthday. The big party in Poway had to be cancelled as she was too sick to travel. The picture is of her on her 84th birthday party held at friends, Bruce and Teri's home in Escondido California.

As the year came to a close, she became weaker, finally falling and breaking her arm in several spots and her hip. She was sent to the hospital again. Other than a week back home, she remained hospitalized three months until April 4, 2005. Her heart gave out, worn out trying to keep her body running, which now was being consumed with infections. She was able tell each of us kids, Danny, Kathleen and me, she loved us before she passed. She finally fell into an everlasting sleep allowing her spirit to make the journey to be with her Lord, family and friends that have made the journey before her. At last, her suffering is over and she is at peace.

You may or may not know that my husband Roy and I are retired and live in a motor home. Because of his true understanding, we spent a lot of the last 14 months in the LA area so that I could be with Mama. I'm very lucky to have him!

Darlene Grace Leggitt, Mama's oldest daughter

• Daughter Darlene's letter to her family: Thank you all for your support these past 14 months. I love you all so very much. I am so blessed that I was able to be with her as much as I was...thanks to my very understanding and loving husband. Think I'll keep him!

Mama, even tho she was just a little person, was a very strong lady and she gave it the good fight. Even tho she was so tired and feeling badly, she managed to bring up a smile and an "I love you" many of the days.

My comfort is that I know she had the strong belief in her Lord and that she would be with him and her family that had made the journey before her. She told me once that they (Her Mother, Dad, Arlone, Eileen and Kenny and her beloved Bob) were waiting for her in Heaven. She almost seemed anxious to be with them.

Her Doctor told me she went very peacefully. Her heart just got very tired trying to fight to keep her body working as her body tried to fight off all of the infections that were consuming her. Her heart just stopped beating and her body fell into an everlasting sleep allowing her spirit to raise up into Heaven.

She had told me on several occasions that she dreamed she had passed and was on her way up when she would awake.

Well, my dear family, I love you all so and at this time, that has a very special meaning. To love and feel loved is the greatest feeling in the world. Mama knew she was loved and no one could love more than she. Her eyes, as she looked and smiled at you, said it all. Also that wink she would give you made you feel very special. She gave a couple to Danny when she saw him last.

Well as usual, my short note has turned into a book. Thank you for letting me share. I, as I'm sure all of us, will really miss her.

Love Darlene and Roy


Sibyl married Earl Richard Osborne, son of Sidney Phelps Osborne and Grace Watson, on 24 Dec 1939 in Fresno, Fresno, California. The marriage ended in divorce.

General Notes: Source of children's births and marriages: Osborne family records.

Earl was born and raised on a farm in Yerington, Nevada. In his early teens, after the separation of his parents, he lived with his mother and stepfather. (His sister Ellen was already married and his brother Roy lived with their father.) Earl's mother and stepfather moved often and at the age of 14 he went with them to Montana and later to Logan, Utah before returning to Yerington where he finished high school. He was very shy as a young man. He was interested in school sports but wasn't allowed to participate because he had lost a kidney from a fall from a horse. This was a blow to his ego. As the old song goes "You Gotta Be a Football Hero to Get Along with the Beautiful Girls."

The May 10th 1937 edition of the Reno Evening Gazett had an article entitled Roll of Honor Given at Lyon. The honor roll for the Yerington high school for the past six week period was announced as follows: Eighty-five to ninety - ... Earl Osborne.

The June 1st 1938 edition had an article entitled Yerington Class to Graduate Friday. Thirty-five seniors will receive their diplomas from the high school here on Friday evening at commencement exercises to be held at Rink Hall. This is one of the largest classes ever to graduate from the local high school. The past weekend has been taken up with student activities which began Saturday evening with the junior - senior banquet and the senior ball. The banquet was held at Spangler hall and members of the junior and senior classes and the faculty were guests... The following seniors will receive their diplomas: Roy Alazzi, Fred Barrett, Charles Booth, Frank Booth, Jim Borge, Victor Bernard, Ray Charlebols, Joy Chiantelli, Mario Dini, Eleanor Fabri, Norma Fabri, Claude Farrell, LaVerda Fitzgerald, Pat Gallager, Bernice Gastman, Marie Gomes, Easter Hanson, Ruth Hansen, Etalo Lommori, Bill Mathews, Frank McGowan, Gerald McGowan, Florence Malonchi, Leona Osborn, Stanley Osborne, Earl Osborne, Idanne Perry, Gene Powers, Louie Romani, Peter Rosaschi, Lela Sciarani, Florence Strosnider, Anne Wagoner, Frances Willis and Arthur Warken.

On Feb.13, 1940 the Nevada State Journal carried an article entitled Birthday Fete Held on Friday. Dayton - A birthday dinner was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Kraai Friday evening honoring Mr. Kraai. A birthday cake was the center of attraction and dinner was served to Mr. and Mrs. Al Lungrum, the Masters Lyle and Douglas Stoner, Max McCallum and Mulligan from Como, Earl Osborne, Sidney Kraai, Miss Wanda Kraai and the host and hostess.

He became involved in the Roosevelt NYA (National Youth Administration) where he met his first wife Sibyl. The military wouldn't accept him because of his kidney condition. However, he spent most of his working career as a civil servant with the military. He started as an aircraft carburetor mechanic and later became an aircraft engine inspector. At approximately age 35 he began studies of electronics and then worked at the Sacramento Signal Depot as an Electronic Technician. He continued his civil service career at Norton Air Force Base in San Bernardino, California where he was employed as an Atlas Missile Inertial Guidance Systems Analyst (trouble shooter.) Much of his time was spent at various missile sites throughout the USA.

In 1965 Earl began working for Naval Operations at Point Magu Naval Base as a Communications Electronic Technician. He was able to take advantage of a federal employee's early retirement program and retired in 1974 at age 55.

Earl and Tommi built their retirement home in Smith Valley, Nevada where he enjoyed doing church work and playing the accordion for various occasions. Torn and disconnected tendons and muscles in his shoulders prevented his playing the accordion any longer. Therefore he began playing the electronic keyboard. Music is his hobby and he now plays the keyboard for parties at the South Lyon County Hospital and the saxophone with a band at the Senior Center in Yerington.

Earl has played trumpet and saxophone in various dance bands as a part-time professional musician for most of his working years.

After living in their dream home for nearly 25 years the maintenance of the vast yard and out buildings became a major chore. They sold their home in Wellington and now own and live in a double-wide manufactured home in Yerington near the senior center and hospital.

Some of his friends and acquaintances don't know his first name. He is known for the most part as "Ozzie." 2 3

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Darlene Grace Osborne was born on 20 Jan 1941 in Fresno, Fresno, California.4 Darlene married Bruce Howard Osterberg, son of Brunolf Host Osterberg and Marjorie Belle Hansen, on 17 Apr 1959 in Yuma, , Arizona. The marriage ended in divorce about 1980. Darlene next married Major Roy Clarke Leggitt USAF (Retired),4 son of Roy Alonzo Young and Clara Clark Leggitt, on 26 Apr 1987 in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, California.

         ii.  Daniel Earl Osborne was born on 30 Jul 1942 in Fresno, Fresno, California. Daniel married Carol Ann Senft, daughter of William Howard Senft and Rose Elizabeth Sellers, on 23 Jun 1962 in San Diego, San Diego, California. The marriage ended in divorce. Daniel next married June Ellen Gwaltney, daughter of Lowell William Gwaltney and Lois Josephine Pence, on 30 Sep 1988 in Carson City, , Nevada. The marriage ended in divorce. Daniel next married Josefa Haydee Chavez, daughter of Manuel Chavez and Dora Bonsell, on 16 Mar 1996 in Wellington, Lyons, Nevada.

        iii.  Kathleen Renee Osborne was born on 4 Aug 1951 in Sacramento, , California. Kathleen married Victor Arlis Deaton, son of Elmer Charles Deaton and Thella Fay Sanders, on 25 May 1975 in Pearl Harbor, , Hawaii.



Sibyl next married Robert Walsh on 31 May 1973 in El Cajon, San Diego, California.

General Notes: Not much is known about Bob's ancestry and early life. Online databases indicate that a vast majority of Walsh families emigrated from Ireland to the United States. The Social Security Death Index indicates Bob's Social Security card was issued prior to 1951 in West Virginia.

The 1920 federal census for Pennsylvania shows a Robert Walsh as a border in the James McCallin household in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. The census was taken in January 1920 so his age of 15 would coincide with his birth in April 1906. The census indicates he was born in Pennsylvania. His mother and father were also born in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, the 1910 and 1930 federal census neither contain any meaningful information on a Robert Walsh born in 1906 in Pennsylvania.

His wife Sibyl related that Bob had been in the United States Army, apparently as a member of the cavalry. He was too young to have been in WWI so it must have been later, possibly WWII. She also related that he had spent much of his earlier life as a ranch hand in the true image of a coyboy. They met while square dancing in El Cajon, California.

After their marriage on May 31, 1973, they traveled quite a bit in a small recreational vehicle. I remember Sibyl relating about many of their adventures including visiting Niagara Falls. Shortly before Bob fell terminally ill they traded the RV for a travel trailer. Unfortunately, the were never able to fully enjoy it.

The Social Security Death Index indicates ROBERT WALSH born 15 Apr 1906, died Nov 1981, last residence 89444 (Wellington, Lyon, NV), SSAN 233-22-7947, issued in West Virginia. Prior to his death he and Sibyl lived in a small cabin on the Sweetwater Ranch on the East Walker River. He died of cancer at the Reno Hospital. Sibyl scattered his cremated ashes on a hilltop overlooking the little cabin where they had spent the last years of his life.

General Notes: The California Death Index contains: MILHOLLAND JOHN H MALE 8 Dec 1897 9 Dec 1961 KANSAS SAN DIEGO 558125545 DAVIS

From the various census information, it appears John and Dorothy lived in Kansas when Arlone was born in 1918. By 1919 they were living in Buhl, Twin Falls, Idaho when Sibyl was born. By 1923 when Eileen was born, they were living again in Kansas. By the 1930 census, they were living in Fresno, CA.

John married Dorothy Alberta Brabb on 23 Dec 1917 in Wakeeney, Trego, Kansas.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Arlone Milholland was born on 17 Oct 1918 in Wakeeney, Trego, Kansas, died on 14 Aug 2001 in Brunswick Cove Nursing Center, Winnabow, Brunswick, North Carolina at age 82, and was buried in Cape Fear Memorial Cemetery, Southport, Brunswick, North Carolina.

General Notes: Source of birth, marriage, and children: Milholland family records.

Buried at Glen Abbey Memorial Park, Bonita, California.

The following is part of a letter Dorothy wrote to a cousin in early 1975, entitled Alberta and John, apparently stating her sorrow that she could not attend a family reunion in the summer of 1975.

I think we left Buhl, Idaho, where Sibyl was born in 1919 - we moved back to WaKeeney, Kansas in the spring of 1921. We had 2 little girls, Arlone, 2 1/2 and Sibyl, 1 1/2 - in Sept. 1922. We had another little girl, Eileen.

In 1925 we moved to Colorado to a farm, but the rains didn't come in time to save the crops - so we decided to come to Calif. We left Colorado on Xmas Day 1926 - John got work on a large ranch 40 miles west of Fresno, driving a large tractor. In Sept 1927 we had our first son, William Lewis - but he contracted pneumonia the following spring and we lost him when he was only 6 months old. Three years later in August 1931, our second son, Kenneth John, was born.

John's health got bad and he had to give up driving the tractor, so we moved in to Fresno, where he could get work.

When World War II started, John and I both took a course in airplane building and in August, were sent to Chula Vista, Calif to the Rohr Aircraft Factory to work. Sibyl and Eileen were both married. Sibyl and Earl had a little girl, Darlene and son, Danny. Eileen and Bert did not have any children yet. Bert joined the Navy and was on a mine layer for the duration of the war. They had a daughter, Diana, before Bert got home. They made their home in Fresno for several years and Sibyl and Earl lived in Sacramento. In 1952 they had another little girl, Kathleen. Arlone met and married a man a work, they had a little girl in 1944, Shirley. Kenneth went into the Navy in July 1950, just before the Korean War started. He was shipped to Japan and spent 28 months there. After he came back and was stationed in San Diego, he met and married Kerrin in 1954. They had 3 little girls, Helen, Mary and Kathy, now they are all grown. In 1965 they had one more little girl, Ann, so we have 8 grand daughters and one grandson. ...

John was very ill for over 10 years and passed away in December 1961. In 1962 I was in the hospital 3 times, but since I have had very good health. I'm still working as a "home maker" for a lady, who is blind and crippled, I work 82 hours a month. ... I walk to town every day I'm not working. ...

Your Cousin, Alberta (Brabb) Milholland

In January 2003, John Lowe gave me a copy of a note apparently written by Dorothy about the Milhollands for her grand daughter Shirley:

Your Great-grand pa - James Christopher Milholland born Aug. 8th, 1851 at Greensburg, Indiana. Your Great Grandma Lucinda Milholland (nee Davis) born March 5, 1852. Eleven children were born to this marriage. 5 died early in life - six lived - Albert, Zella, Pearl, Allie, Lula and John. I don't have the dates.

Albert and wife, Anna - raised 7 of their 10 children - Albert Jr., Vernon, Morris, Bertha, Luch, Ruth and Buffia.

Zella and Mr. Seeley had - 4 - Neva, Bentorn, James and Alice Pearl.

Allie and Mert Daily raised 4 of their 7 - the ones that lived were Glen, Pearl, Donald, and Wayne.

Bula married Walter Parks - no children - John married Dorothy Alberta (Brabb) - they had 5 and raised 4 - Arlone, Sibyl, Eileen and Kenneth.

This all I know, I'll try to get some history, from the Milhollands - they probably have a lot of dates and information that I don't have.

I do know that the Milhollands came from Ireland in the first place, only 3 came in the beginning, so that any one that spells Milholland as we do, belong to the same clan.

The California Death Index contains: MILHOLLAND DOROTHY ALBERTA FEMALE 17 Nov 1898 3 Jan 1986 KANSAS ALAMEDA 558125513 GRISWOLD BRABB

Dorothy married John Harrison Milholland on 23 Dec 1917 in Wakeeney, Trego, Kansas.

Third Generation (Grandparents)





4. James Christopher Milholland, son of John Milholland and Jane Lynn, was born on 8 Aug 1851 in Greensburg, Decatur, Indiana, died on 23 May 1929 at age 77, and was buried in WaKeeney, Trego, Kansas, , WaKeeney Cemetery.

General Notes: On August 13, 1942 James' daughter Zella Seeley recorded an affidavit in Rush County, Kansas indicating John Harrison Milholland was the son of James Christopher Milholland and Lucinda Milholland, nee Lucinda Davis; that at the time of the birth of said John Harrison Milholland said James Christopher was 46 years of age and said Luncinda Milholland was 45 years of age, both parents of said John Harrison Milholland were both born at Greensburg, Indiana, the former on August 8, 1851 and the latter on March 5, 1852.

In 1998, Diana Selph, daughter of Eileen Milholland, provided me a copy of a handwritten narrative entitled "Milhollands" which contained the following:

Your Great Grandpa James Christopher born Aug 8, 1851 in Greensburg and your Great Grandma Lucinda (Davis) born March 5, 1852 in Greensburg, they were born in Indiana. They had 11 children but only raised 6. Bert, Zella, Pearl, Allie, Lula and John, your Great Grandpa. I can't give you their birthdays or the years they were born and died. I may be able to get it from some of the children - I'll try.

John Harrison Milholland was born in Kansas, December 8th, 1897, he died Dec. 9th 1961 in San Diego. His oldest brother Albert C., wife Anna, had 10 children, I think - Albert Jr., Vernon, Morris, Bertha, Lucy, Ruth, and Bruffia - thats all I can remember. Zella - had 4 - Brenton, James, Neva, and Alice. Pearl Allie - had 7 but 3 died - Pearl, Glen, Donald and Wayne. Pearl - had 4, 2 I think - but I don't have their names. Great Aunt Lula never had any. John - had 5, but only 4 lived - Arlone, Sibyl, Eileen and Kenneth.

Note: The Family Search IGI has an entry for the marriage of a James Milholland to a Lucinda about 1871. The location is indicated "of Jennings, Indiana."

The IGI also has an entry for a James Milholland born about 1849 "of Jennings, Indiana." His parents are listed as John and Jane Milholland.

There is an additional entry in the IGI that simply indicates the birth of a James Milholland in 1852 "of Jennings, Indiana."

The IGI shows a John Milholland marrying a Mrs. Jane Milholland in 1834 "of Jennings, Indiana."

Biography of Joseph Milholland

Posted by Wells CC on Wed, 23 Jun 1999

Surname: MILHOLLAND, PIERCE

Biographical sketch extracted from:
Biographical and historical record of Adams and Wells counties, Indiana.
Chicago: Lewis Publishing Co., 1887. pp. 1022-1023.

JOSEPH MILHOLLAND, farmer, residing on section 22, Lancaster Township, was born in Butler County, Ohio, September 10, 1840, a son of John and Jane Milholland, both of whom are deceased. Joseph was the second son and fifth child in a family of ten children. When quite young he was brought by his parents to Franklin County, Indiana, and later to Decatur County, where he was reared on a farm. He remained under the home roof until October, 1861, when he volunteered in Company B, Fifty-second Indiana Infantry, his regiment being assigned to the Army of the Tennessee. He received his baptism of fire at the battle of Fort Donelson. His regiment and the Second Iowa, the day before the surrender of the fort, charged the rebel right, meeting with severe losses. After the siege of Corinth the Fifty-second was engaged in repairing the railroad from Corinth to Memphis, and later garrisoned Fort Pillow, Tennessee. After the taking of Vicksburg the regiment was sent there and was under Sherman in the Meridian campaign, during which time Mr. Milholland re-enlisted as a veteran. His regiment, as a part of the Sixteenth Corps, under General A. J. Smith, fought at the victorious battle of Tupelo, Mississippi. After a long and exhaustive campaign the regiment returned to Tennessee, and participated in the battle of Nashville, under General Thomas, where the rebel General Hood's army was destroyed. The last campaign of his regiment was in the Gulf Department, and the last battle in which he participated was at Fort Blakely. He was discharged at Montgomery, Alabama, September 10, 1865, when he returned to Decatur County, and October 5 of the same year was married to Miss Sarah Ann Pierce, a daughter of Reuben E. Pierce. She was born in the State of Virginia, but reared from childhood in Decatur County, Indiana. Mr. and Mrs. Milholland are the parents of eight children: Charles Victor, Ida Belle, George Edgar, Willie Andrew, Hattie Eveline, Kendry Allen, Eugene Porter and Alpha Winfield. Mr. Milholland made his home in Decatur County until he came with his family to his present farm in October, 1875. His farm now consists of eighty acres of well-improved land. All the improvements have been made since he settled on the place. At that time only a small clearing had been made and a log cabin built, which his family occupied for a time. The log cabin has since been replaced by a substantial frame residence, and sixty-five acres of his land has been brought under a fine cultivation. In politics Mr. Milholland is an ardent Republican. Both he and his wife are members of the Baptist church. For disability contracted while in the service of his country Mr. Milholland now draws a pension.

Hello Darlene,
My grandfather was William Harrison Davis and among his possessions was a
photo of "Aunt Lou" and her husband. From my research I know that she was
Lucinda Davis, daughter of Harrison Davis and his first wife, Asenith P.
Jones. Family records said that she married a Milholland but that was all I
knew until I found your web page. My mother has told me that William worked
in Wakeeny, Kansas as a young man and now I know the connection. Harrison
Davis was the son of James Davis and Martha Smothers. James' parents were
Matthias Davis and Sarah Rulon. Martha's father was Hugh Smothers and her
grandfather was Andrew Smothers. I'm currently actively working on this
line but I'd be happy to share with you what I have so far, including the
picture of Aunt Lou.

Your cousin,
Patricia

Most other records indicate his name is John. Some records indicate his last name was spelled Mulholland, others Milhollen.

From the notes of his son Joseph, the family name is spelled Milholland. The family home prior to Indiana was Butler County, Ohio. Sometime just after 1840 they apparently moved to Franklin County, Indiana, and later to the next county to the west, Decatur County.

General Notes: Source of birth, marriage, death, and most children: Milholland family records and family group sheets provided by Kenneth Virgil Brabb.

The following obituary is from the files of Kenneth Virgil Brabb:

William Thirsk Brabb, one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens of Western Kansas, died at his home in Ogallah township, Wed. of last week, after an illness of 6 mo. or more.

Mr. Brabb was born at Romeo, Michigan, Oct. 3, 1833, died at his home in Ogallah township Dec. 12, 1906, aged 73 years, 2 mo. and 9 days. The deceased was married to Antonette Putnam of Rockford, Kent County, Michigan, Jan. 4, 1858. From this union there were born 5 sons and 1 daughter, all of whom are living in Trego Co., excepting George A. Brabb, who resides in Cado County, Oklahoma.

Mr. Brabb is the youngest son of George Brabb, Sr., who with his wife and 7 children came from Yorkshire, England, and settled in Michigan when it was a territory. There were 4 sons and 4 daughters in this family, W.T. Brabb being born about 2 ½ years after they came to America. Mr. Brabb is the last of his family, his parents, brothers and sisters having preceded him to the other shore.

Mr. Brabb came to Western Kansas about 20 years ago, settled in Ogallah township, where he resided until the time of his death. He was among the oldest settlers of the east part of the county, and was one of the best known men of the county. He was one of the few who stayed here and underwent the privations and endured the struggles incident to the development of a new country, and was just beginning to take life easy when he was taken from our midst, in answer to the summons of the angel of death, who came to bear him away to a land where changes never come--need not come.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Scott of this city. A large number of friends and neighbors were present at the services which were held at the house, and followed the remains to Ogallah cemetery.

The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community in their hour of sorrow.

Some Milholland records indicate W.T. Brabb was born at sea; however, we now know this is not true.

In 1995, when the British author James Herriot, best known for "All Creatures Great and Small", died, I found that his home was the village of Thirsk in the Yorkshire Dales of Northern Yorkshire, England. His obituary indicated that the entire area of one of the most beautiful parts of England became known as James Herriot Country, creating a prosperous tourist industry.

The Oldaker text contains:

WILLIAM THIRSK, born October 3, 1833 at Washington, Macomb County, Michigan. Died December 12, 1906. Married Antonette Putnam.

William T. Brabb and Antonette Putnam were married January 4, 1858 at Rockford, Kent County, Michigan. Rockford was just a few miles from Cannonburg. Both communities lay on the out skirts of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

William and Antonette's first child, William M., was born at Rockford, February 7, 1859. They probably lived there the first two years of their marriage and then returned to Macomb County.

The William T. Brabb family does not appear in the 1860 census in either Kent or Macomb County, Michigan (note: Kent County is on the west side of the state while Macomb is on the east side near Detroit). It is not known whether they were living somewhere else or if they were missed by the census takers. It was not uncommon for the census takers to not make a return call on families who were not at home when they were making their survey.

It is a good possibility that William was living on and operating his father's farm by 1860. The 1860 census of Macomb County lists the father, George Sr., as retired and living with his son, Thomas, in the nearby community of Bruce. The Brabb farm was located in Washington. William's older brother, Absalom, operated a farm in the vicinity as well as his sister Martha's husband, Archible Dewey. Another brother, Thomas, was a shoemaker. So William was the only other member of the family living there to run the farm of George Sr.

After the death of George Sr. in 1864, and the estate had been settled, William purchased from Thomas, George and Ann, their portions of their fathers land. He operated the farm until 1870, when he sold his property and moved West.

William and Antonette arrived in Missouri in April of 1870. They bought a small farm near Shelbina in Shelby County. They raised corn, beans, and alfalfa hay. They had a milk cow and some horses or mules to do their farm work with.

The area where they lived was the Salt River Township. In the local newspaper "The Shelbina Democrats is the notation about the township dated January 4, 1882. "Salt River Township is cut up some by the river from which it takes its name; but it contains much rolling prairie. Like the other townships of the area it is nearly all under fence and has many excellent and beautiful farms." Salt River Township was located a few miles east of Shelbina.

While they lived near Shelbina, the Brabb family became good friends with a man named George William Denny. Mr. Denny also worked for the Brabb's. After the Brabbs left for Oregon in the spring of 1882, it is recorded in the diary kept of the trip, they corresponded with Mr. Denny. Later, in the early 1900's, George Denny and his family moved to Trego County, Kansas. The family of William T. Brabb were living there also. In 1909 a daughter of George Denny's, Alice, married William T. Brabb's grandson, Oscar, the son of Ella (Brabb) and John Ruppe.

When William and Antonette left Michigan in the spring of 1870, they had four children, William M., George, Ella, and Charles. The oldest "Will" was eleven years old and the baby, Charles, was about three months. Two more children were born while they lived at Shelbina, Thomas and Lewis.

Antonette's father, Alpheus Putnam, passed away June 9, 1875 and was buried at Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan. Her mother, Sarepta, later came to Missouri and stayed with Antonette and her family. She was living with them in 1880, but did not go on to Oregon in 1882. She returned to Michigan and probably lived with her son by her first marriage, George Annable. She died March 21, 1885. She is also buried at Grand Rapids.

Many of the people in the area of Shelby County were interested in the land which was opened for homesteading in the Oregon Country. William was also affected by this westward move.

In the spring of 1882 several families and individuals formed a company and left for Oregon.

The newspaper from Shelbina, Missouri 'The Shelbina Democrat' dated May 3, 1882, reads:

"Eleven families started yesterday from this place and vicinity for Oregon."

May 10, 1883:

"W. T. Brabb, S. P. Heinger, :. S. Jurdane, Richard Winston, 8. F. Carroll, John Heathman, Wm. Fish and Jake McBroom left Shelby last week with their families in white topped wagons for Oregon."

Other known, but not named, members of the group were, Adam and John Ruppe, Lee and Will Cartwright. Lee cartwright'S wife was a daughter of Jake McBroom.

(Antonette's birthday came just five days after they started. Ella and Lewis also passed their birthdays on the trip.)

Notes on the trip:

William T. Brabb served as wagon master for the group. Will Brabb, son of William T., kept a daily account of the trip, dated May 3, 1882 to August 25, 1882.

The group traveled in covered wagons pulled by either horses or mules.

William Brabb and his family traveled in four wagons. William Fish and family had one Wagon. Adam and John Ruppe probably shared one wagon, but each had their own saddle horse.

At the start of the trip, the group agreed not to travel on Sundays unless it was necessary

The group apparently left together, then split up for a few days. Later, after crossing the Missouri River at St. Joseph, Missouri, they were re-united on May 13 and continued their journey.

The weather and roads were both very bad and caused many problems for the travelers.

Twice, William Brabb tried to get passage on the railroad for his family. The first time was May 15 at Hastings, Nebraska and then again at Laramie, Wyoming on June 21. His efforts were unsuccessful, because there was not room on the train.

More than once the livestock ran off or stampeded in the night.

George Brabb was a good fisherman as well as a very good shot and often provided the group with fresh meat.

It was mentioned several times that they were traveling to Oregon, but no town or area was spoken of; however, when they reached Pendleton, Oregon they seemed to have arrived at their destination.

Their travel route followed closely the route of the Oregon Trail, it was a follows:

Leaving Shelbina, Missouri they traveled west along the route of present day highway #36 to St. Joseph, Missouri. They crossed the Missouri River on a toll bridge.

Continued to follow route #36 through Kansas. Crossed into Nebraska near the Blue River, present day route #77. Traveled in a north west direction to Hastings, Nebraska, crossed the Platte River by bridge at Hastings, passed through Cheyenne, Wyoming and on to Laramie.

At Laramie they turned north and traveled toward Medicine Bow, Wyoming (highways #30 and #287). They returned to route #80 (present day) and traveled through Rawlins to Rock Springs, Wyoming.

At Rock Springs they turned to the northwest and crossed into Idaho near Montpelier. While in Idaho they passed through Soda Springs, Malad City, and then traveled toward Boise, probably following present day route #80 passing through Baker and LaGrande. They stopped at Pendleton, Oregon.

By the time the wagon train reached Pendleton, the size of the company dwindled to four families, Brabb's, McBroom's, Ruppe's, and Fish's. The others having stopped at other places along the way.

The McBroom family settled in Oregon, later some members of the family returned to Missouri. William Fish and his family may have stayed in Oregon. Adam Ruppe married Anette, "Nettie," Fish January 3, 1883, they lived in Pendleton and operated a wheat farm. A sketch of Adam is on page 125

John Ruppe married Ella Brabb, daughter of William T. Brabb, on December 3, 1882, at Pendleton. Later that winter they left Pendleton and traveled by boat down the Columbia River to the Coast and then on to San Francisco, California. At San Francisco they took the train to Shelbina, Missouri. They lived near John's parents for two years. In the summer of 1884 they moved to Trego County, Kansas. More information on John and Ella are on page 174

The William T. Brabb family, with the exception of daughter Ella, spent the winter in Pendleton. They either did not care for the area or were unable to secure land to their liking-whatever the reason, they decided to make a return trip and investigate the probability of locating in Kansas. In the Spring of 1883, they purchased a herd of eighty horses from the Umitillia Indians. The Umitillia Indian Reservation is near Pendleton.

The return trip was probably made over the same route. They did not keep an account of it. It is not known if they traveled with another group or not.

Driving and controlling a herd of untrained horses is not a small task and it undoubtedly took all the time and attention of everyone, who was not driving a wagon.

One incident that happened on the return trip was when the group crossed the Snake River in Idaho. The weight of the horses broke the bridge, causing them and some of the men to be thrown into the river. Lew Brabb was helping herd the horses when the bridge broke. He and his horse fell into the water with the others. Lew was only eight, but he managed to hang onto his horse while it swam to the shore.

They arrived at Council Grove, Kansas by September and spent the winter there. The following summer, William T. Brabb took his family and the herd of horses to Trego County, Kansas. He bought land near Ogallah, which is in the northeast part of the county. Later his sons took out homesteads in the same area. After the death of Antonette Brabb in 1928, the land was divided among the children, see will of Antonette Brabb, page 18 .

The horses that had been bought from Oregon, were either broke to ride or work, depending on which they were best suited for. They were sold to the farmers in the area.

John and Ella Ruppe left Shelbina, Missouri in 1884 and moved to Trego County, Kansas. They lived near Ella's parents and engaged in farming. Since John was skilled in the breaking and training of horses, it is possible that Ella's father may have invited them to come and help with the training of the horses.

William T. Brabb, with the assistance of his sons and son-in-law, John Ruppe, farmed their land near Ogallah for several years. They raised mainly wheat.

Following is an article published in the Hays Daily News, Hays, Kansas, November 5, 1967 on William T. Brabb, titled "Gold Is Where You Find It," by Kittie Dale.

"Before gold was discovered in Smoky Hill City, on the Kansas plains in the gay 90's, a homesteader living in a remote part of the short grass country might have passed up an opportunity to 'strike it rich' in his own back yard!"

"In the 1870's J. D. Brabb, of Ellis, paternal grandparents - William T. Brabb, and his wife Antonette, daughter of Scottish parents, Alpheus and Sarepta Putnam, came in a covered wagon to Council Grove, Kansas, from Oregon." [Note: the actual time was the summer of 1883.]

"Along the trail where they crossed the North Platte River, they tied cottonwood logs on the sides of the wagon to float it across the river."

"Once a bear scrounging for food, invaded their camp causing the horses to stampede. The runaways were found at the site where they had camped the night before by the weary and footsore owners."

"In 1881 [should read 1884] they homesteaded on land twelve miles east of WaKeeney. In surveys made by geologists, it had been discovered that a granite ridge ran underground northwest to southeast from Ogallah to Ellis. The opinion was, the ridge separated this land from a large body of water on the west side, but through seams in the stratum seeped large veins of water."

"Engineers probing for oil deposits in the surrounding country, estimated the ridge to be 3600 feet below the ground and speculated it could probably be part of a submerged mountain range connected to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado."

"It has been established that whatever stream of water whose basic flow, however, remote, stems from the Rockies-tracings of gold have been found."

"Mr. Brabb's homestead was close enough to the ridge to effect an answer as to what happened when in 1900 he decided to dig a large well on his land from which he planned to fill an earthen reservoir to irrigate his alfalfa crops."

"The hand-dug well was 110 feet deep and 10 feet wide. A tripod of cottonwood tree logs was stationed over the well. On pulley ropes suspended from the center of the tripod, was a large oaken bucket or tub, big enough for a man to stand in. Each day Mr. Brabb stepped into the bucket carrying his wagon lantern, its wick burning in the wool tallow, and descended into the dirt cavern of his well with the ropes above manipulated by either of his five sons, George, Charley, Lewis, William and Thomas, the father of J.D. Brabb."

"At a depth of 110 feet, after he had reached a rock bottom ledge and when water began to trickle and flow over the ledge and through about six inches of course black gravel, he decided he had hit a vein of water."

"Suddenly, in the flickering candlelight, his eyes spotted something shiny in the black sand. He picked it up and discovered he held a gold nugget about the size of a hazelnut!"

"In great excitement and without a thought of searching for more, he called up to his sons to haul him up! Work was abandoned and a trip to town was made." The gold nugget was taken to Muhlheim Jewelry Store in Ellis. News travels fast and along Main Street the gold "nugget" was the topic of lively discussions and wild and weird speculations. Later it was polished and displayed in the window of the jewelry store where the space out in front was seldom without a spectator standing there "wool gathering."

"When questioned as to whether his grandfather stopped digging for a well and began digging for gold instead, Mr. Brabb said no, that after the excitement died down evidently work on the well was resumed without delay. It was his grandfather's logic that water was more precious than gold."

"Sandstone rocks were hauled from the old Asa Adair ranch on Section 28, in the Saline River country. The sandstone rocks were lowered to him in the oaken tub and once the first circular row was securely laid on the rock bottom, roughly hewn planks were lowered which he placed like a platform crosswise on the walling."

"He continued to build from side to side and as the water rose the planks were raised to each new height until the stone casing reached ground level."

"The well was pumped by a windmill with a wooden tower and steel head and fan. In all the many years it was used it never once went dry, fulfilling all Mr. Brabb's dream of irrigation."

"Through the years the well has long since been filled in and the golden nugget went glimmering. Mr. Brabb said he could not recall what its fate had been."

"Meanwhile the underground river, with endless energy, flows on its mysterious pilgrimage along the granite ridge."

"Did it one day in the year 1900 capriciously deposit a gold nugget to brighten the life of a weary homesteader--or was it a lure to tempt him with promise?"

It is not known how much the gold nugget was worth. William T. Brabb had a man check the well to see what the prospects were for mining. They decided that it would not be worth mining. A few smaller pieces of gold and some shark teeth were found in the fine sand.

The following information is found in the "Centennial History of Ogallah, Kansas" by James R. Simmons, published in 1979.

"Kansa" was a Sioux Indian word meaning "South Wind" and was originally connected with an Indian religious rite. Kansas became a state January 29, 1861. Trego County was organized from Ellis County in 1870. It was named for Captain Edgar Poe Trego, A Civil War hero in the Eighth Kansas Infantry.

Most of the Sioux names in Kansas were of Kansas or Osage origin. Oglala was a Siouan name which was taken from a tribe called the Oglala Sioux, also called the Ogallahah-hence the name Ogallah.

The town site of Ogallah was surveyed and platted in February of 1879. The first township officers were elected July 26, 1879.

Items about the Brabb family:

"T.O. (Thomas O) Brabb settled on a farm three miles north and four miles east of Ogallah in 1884 and Antonette Brabb settled on a farm three miles north and three miles east, section 3-12-21 and 4-12-21, respectively."

"Ogallah Township officers elected November 5, 1889 were: . . . Township clerks, A.E. McCollum, 'Old Man' Brabb (William T.) and Thomas Tarpy . . .

"Ogallah Town officers elected November 8, 1892 were : . . . Justice of Peace T.O. (Thomas) Brabb: . . .

"Ogallah Township officers elected November 7, 1893 were: . . . Constables, Charles Brabb and Lewis Howe;. . .

"February 28, 1898, W.T. (William T.) Brabb of Ogallah bought two large loads of lumber in WaKeeney. He will build his new home soon."

"The W.T. (William T.) Brabb family was listed as members of the Methodist Church in the Ridgeway area.

"Ogallah Township officers elected November 2, 1897 were: . . . Justices of the Peace, John Hixson and W. (William) Brabb; . . .

"Ogallah Township officers elected November 8, 1898 were: . . . Township Treasurer, W.M. (William M.) Brabb;

Church and Family History Research Assistance for Franklin County, Indiana

CHURCHES: LITTLE CEDAR GROVE

Little Cedar Grove Church was the first church organized in the Whitewater Valley. It was established by Elder William Tyner, who came with a colony from Virginia in 1797, and built a log church as early as 1805, about two or three miles southeast of Brookville. An article in the Primitive Monitor (1958) says the church was organized in 1806, and that Elder William Tyner, Conrad Saylor, John Milholland, Jabez Winship, John Hall, William G. Eads, James Winchel, John Quick, and their families were named among the earliest members of the church.

In 1812, they built a brick building. This brick building, with its balcony, and rifle ports, in the walls, is still preserved, and is the oldest church building in the state of Indiana still standing on its original site. The bricks used were larger than those commonly made today, and were moulded and fired on the site after oxen trampled the hard-packed clay into the right consistency. Thomas Winscott was the brick mason, and Thomas Carter was the carpenter. The building is 22 feet wide and 40 feet long. It was heated by charcoal placed in a shallow pit where the center of the floor had been removed.

Little Cedar Grove Church united with the Miami Baptist Association in 1806, at which time the church reported twelve members. Records indicate that the Whitewater Association was organized at this church, on October 28, 1809. Some of the Elders who were present on that occasion were Elders William Jones, Moses Frazee, James Lee, and Stephen Gard, who were appointed by the Miami Association to assist them in forming an association. Elder William Tyner was chosen the first moderator, and John Thompson of Mt. Bethel Church was chosen the first clerk.

Will and Probate Records Bk. A, Franklin Co., Ind. Terr. Page 1. William H Eads and Mary Milholland are confirmed as executors of the will of John Milholland deceased Feb. 28, 1814. John's will was dated July 5, 1813, and was witnessed by James McKinney, George Daford and Enoch McCarty. John mentions his wife Mary and his legal heirs and William Conner is listed as his stepson. He also mentions his son James.

While there is no proof or even evidence except for the above mention in the will that John Milholland is the father of James Milholland, the following inventory might be of benefit sometime in the future:

Court Records of Franklin County, Indiana by Maurice Holmes, Jan 1987, has several references to William H. Eads and Mary Milholland as executors of the will of John Milholland, deceased Feb. 28, 1814. John's will was dated July 5, 1813. John mentions his wife Mary and is legal heirs and William Conner is listed as his stepson. He also mentions his son James.

Hopefully, the Franklin Co. Will and Probate Records Book A, page 1 will have the complete will.

18. Henry Lynn,15 17 son of Moses Lynn and Unknown, was born on 11 Jan 1775 in Wellsburg Twp, Brooke, WV, USA and died on 10 Nov 1823 in , Franklin, Indiana at age 48. Ancestral File Number: MC63-KC.

However, in 2005, Bob Lynn sent me the following:

By the way, I have ancestry information on Jane Lynn, wife of John Milholland, that goes quite a ways back.Her father was Henry Lynn, whose wife Rebecca Cain born 17897 (I actually have a photo of her I can email, if you like) family goes way back to the 1600s through the Van Buskirk family. I will happily share everything I have. And, by the way, some years ago, I sent information to the LDS people about my family. Somehow or other, the got the name "Johnson" for where I don't know, mixed up into the family. The bottom line is, no one I know of came from any place named "Johnson." and the surname's "Johnson" are 99.9 % incorrect!!!! I'll be happy to straighten it it out for you. Your Jane Lynn was one of 13 kids of Henry Lynn and Rebecca Cain.- and most of them I have traced down to current times. Rebecca Cain's parents were Walter Cain and Mary Ann Van Buskirk - her parents were Captain Capt. Lawrence Van Buskirk and Rebecca Pierce: Back from Mary Ann Van Buskirk, it goes like this: Mary Ann Van Buskirk (abt 1752-1830) to Capt. Lawrence Van Buskirk (abt 1720-1802) to Johannes Van Buskirk (1694-1720) to Major Thomas Laurens Van Buskirk (1668-1745) to the immigrant ancestor Laurens Andriessen Van Buskirk(1636-abt 1694). Laurens Andriessen Van Buskirk; he was born at Slesvig-Holstein, Denmark, immigrated to the Netherlands, and thence to New Amsterdam which, of course, is now New York City.
Laurens Andriessen Van Buskirk;was prominent there: He was appointed a member of the Bergen Court on Feb 165, 1677, and was named president of the court on Aug 31, 1682. He was also a member of the Governor's Council for a number of years, appointed first on March 18, 1672.
With others he purchased, on January 6, 1676, a large parcel of land, then known as New Hackensack, on which he resided as early as 1688. After he married Jannatje Jans, widow of Christian Barantsen, he received a fortune consisting of her four sons by her first husband Christian, and about 1,400 florins "heavy money, ten wampum beads for one stiver."

Gordon Price's notes contain:
Our earliest known Lynn ancestor is this Henry Lynn, spelled "Linn" at that time. When half his children were born he changed the spelling to Lynn

The Lynns were from the State of Virginia and it was there that Mary had been born 28 Aug 1801.

The family left Brooke Co, WV, around 1823 and moved to Brookville, Franklin Co., In.

He is listed in the 1809 Business Directory of Charleston (now Wellsburgh), Virginaia (now West Virginia) as a tanner.

From, "A Gift In Love, the following is quoted, "The Fall 1995 issue of the Lynn/Linn Lineage Quartely magazine, on page 66 records that, "Henry Lynn and his wife came from the vicinity of Wellsburg, Virginia (now West Virginia) prior to 1823. They floated themselves and their household goods down the Ohio River to the Whitewater River, then poled up the Whitewater to Brookville, Franklin County, Indana, where they settled.

Henry married Rebecca Cain about 1799.

General Notes: Mr. and Mrs. Cain's daughter Rebecca wedded Henry Lynn of Virginia, who some years later with his family, floated down the Ohio to Cincinnati, in a flatboat of his own construction, loaded with one years provisions and settled on a farm near Brookville, Franklin County, Indiana. The bank in Virginia in which a large sum of money (as considered in those days) was deposited by them, failed. The pioneers found themselves in a dilemma, in a strange country. The husband soon died, leaving his widow Reabecca Cain Lynn with ten children for whom she must provide. She had faith in God and was possessed with energy and tact. She was of the Missionary Baptist belief and died at the age of 96. Her body rests in the village cemetary of Salamony, Ind, near Huntingtion.

When Henry died Rebecca went to live with John McWhorter family at Metamora, In, and then to Huntington Co, In, with her son in law Alexander Morgan husband of daughter Margaret Peggy.

She resided in Franklin Co, In, in November 1828

Rebecca married Henry Lynn about 1799.

20. James Davis,6 son of Matthias Davis and Sarah Rulon, was born in 1798 near Mt. Sterling, Montgomery, Kentucky and died in 1866 in Indiana at age 68.

General Notes: From: "Noah Smothers" <nsmother@socket.net>
Date: Mon, 16 Dec 2002 19:47:17 -0600

In the History of Decatur County, Indiana, on the subject of James Davis, it
reads. James Davis,born in 1798 died in 1866, was married in Kentucky to
Martha Smathers, a daughter of Hugh Smathers, a native of Ireland, who
immigrated to America, took part in the Indian wars and in the War of 1812
and went to Kentucky, where he married and prospered. In 1830 he came to
Indiana and ten years later emigrated to Iowa, where he spent the remainder
of his life. Hugh Smathers was married twice, his second wife who was a Miss
Hopkins, having been the mother of three children, Hugh, Sabina, and
Benjamin. .....

Note. According to all the Census Research and other records, the
information in this history is almost all wrong. Hugh did not immigrate from
Ireland, nor did he move to Iowa and spend the rest of his life. This
information has been checked against the Iowa State Records and there is
nothing to confirm this. Also his will in Franklin County, Indiana pretty
much tells us that this man died in the state and county. Maybe the Hugh
that moved to Iowa was Hugh Smothers Jr., instead... information from
Smethers Society Gazette, published Aug. Sep. 1999 Issue no. 2.

Martha married James Davis on 7 Feb 1819 in Floyd Co., Kentucky.

24. George Brabb(S),19 20 son of John Brabbs and Jane Morrall, was born on 9 Mar 1799 of Ricall, Yorkshire, England and died on 14 Apr 1864 in Vassar, , Michigan at age 65.

General Notes: George and Elizabeth migrated from North Cave, York, England in 1830 or 1831. Kenneth Virgil Brabb records indicate the family arrived 2 1/2 years before William Thirsk Brabb was born.

Source of marriage and first seven children: IGI, England, County of York, as of Mar 1988.

Source of connection to Isaac Brabb and thus to his father: Wilma Flach, Prodigy KGNW42A, 10 Nov 1990. "Geo. Brabbs and my ggGrFather Isaac were brothers. Geo and Elizabeth apparently followed Isaac and Wife Hannah to MI. Geo & Eliz's son Thomas came in 1830 w/Isaac and Hannah."

Source of birth and death: Family group sheet from Kenneth Virgil Brabb.

These records include death dates and locations and some marriage information for several children.

There is a text entitled John Boyer Ruppe & Ella Antonette Brabb - Their Ancestors & Descendants, compiled by Shirley Ann Ruppe Oakander, December 1985, that list the parents of George and Isaac Brabb as Absalom and Ann (Moore) Brabb of North Cave.

The Oakander text indicates the George Brabb family sailed for america in June of 1833. The tiny twin babies were only a few weeks old and created a lot of interest aboard the ship, and many of the other passengers gave them presents.

The voyage to America took a little over fourteen weeks. The ship's crew lost their bearing during ten days of heavy fog and the ship drifted northward. They found themselves surrounded by ice bergs and a large number of whales. Although it was during July and August, they were so close to the North Pole that winter wraps were necessary.

Their ship finally landed at Quebec, Canada. Family tradition maintains that as the family walked down the gangplank, George Sr. accidentally dropped the last of his money, a fifty cent piece, and it disappeared between the boards of the gangplank. Apparently, George Sr. was able to find work, and they lived in Quebec for awhile.

Later they traveled by boat to Michigan and settled in Washington Township, Macomb County. Michigan was still a territory at that time. George's brother, Isaac, and family were living in Washington Township at this time. George Brabb Sr. and his family arrived in Macomb County in October 1832. He obtained forth acres of land in Section 5. He cleared the land and built a house where he and his family resided for about eight years. Later he purchased adjoining land and built a larger home. He continued to buy additional land until he owned 322 acres of good land.

George and Elizabeth/s last child. William Thirsk, was horn October 3, 1B33, at Romeo, Wacomb County, Wichigan.

During the year of 1835, tragedy came into the Brabb home, with the death of the mother and the daughter Elizabeth. Elizabeth Brabb, the mother, was forty years old when she died, leaving a young family. William was only two years old. The daughter Elizabeth was nine at the time of her death. The cause of their deaths is not known. Six years later Mary, one of the twins, died at the age of ten. They were all buried in the Brabb Cemetery at Washington, Macomb County, Michigan. The father, George Sr., is also buried there.

After the death of his wife, George and his family remained on the farm. The oldest daughter, Ann, who was thirteen when her mother died, no doubt assumed the household responsibilities.

By 1860, George Brabb Sr. had retired and was living with his son Thomas and Thomas' wife Phebe, in the small community of Bruce in Macomb County. At the time of his death, April 14, 1864, George was living in Vassar County, Michigan with his daughter Mocha and her husband, Archible Dewey. The probate court records of his estate list that the cost of bringing his body back to Washington for burial and the funeral expenses came to a total of $50.00.

George Brabb did not leave a will. The following information on his estate was found in the probate records:

Probated May 3, 1864, Petitioned by Absalom Brabb. Property value $15,000.00. Surviving heirs: Thomas Brabb, Ann Tuttle, Absalom Brabb, George Brabb, Martha Dewey, William T. Brabb.

John H. Brabb was chosen to be the administrator. He was a son of Isaac Brabb, George Sr.'s brother. John was a successful farmer and businessman. He was also a director of the bank and a director in the Detroit Union Iron Company. He had worked with finances for many years, making him well qualified to handle the affairs of the Brabb estate.

After all debts, mortgages, etc. were paid, the land and the other possessions were divided among the six surviving children. Thomas and George sold their inheritances--land, animals, and machinery--to their brother William. Ann sold her land to William also, but retained the other possessions she received.

Sometime between 1850 and 1860, Steven and Ann (Brabb) Tuttle and family moved to Cannonburg, Kent County, Michigan. They lived near the Alpheus Putnam home. William probably was either working there or visiting when he met Antonette. George Brabb Jr. also moved to Cannonburg to work and married Francis Kent of that community on December 21, 1861. 19 20

George married Elizabeth Thirsk on 16 Nov 1819 in North Cave, York, England.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Thomas Brabb(S) was born on 22 Jan 1820 in North Cave, York, England, died on 17 Apr 1890 in , Macomb, Michigan at age 70, and was buried in Washington Twp, Macomb, Michigan, , Brabb Cemetery. Thomas married Phebe R. Bacheler on 19 Jun 1846 in Macomb, Michigan.

         ii.  Ann Brabbs was born on 10 Mar 1822 in North Cave, York, England and died in Sep 1875 in , , Wisconsin at age 53. Ann married Tuttle.

        iii.  Absalom Brabs was born on 13 Jun 1824 in North Cave, York, England and died in Jan 1900 in Or 1901, , Michigan at age 75.

         iv.  Elizabeth Brabbs was born on 3 Sep 1826 in North Cave, York, England, died on 19 Feb 1835 in Romeo, Macomb, Michigan at age 8, and was buried in Washington Twp, Macomb, Michigan, , Brabb Cemetery.

          v.  George Brabs was born on 30 Nov 1828 in North Cave, York, England and died on 24 Jun 1897 in Snella, , Oklahoma Terr. at age 68.

         vi.  Martha Manchester Brabbs was born on 29 Apr 1831 in North Cave, York, England and died in , Lapeer, Michigan. Martha married Dewey.

        vii.  Mary Manchester Brabbs was born on 29 Apr 1831 in North Cave, York, England and died in Romeo, Macomb, Michigan.

12     viii.  William Thirsk Brabb. William married Antonette Putnam on 4 Jan 1858 in Napoleon, Jackson, Michigan.


25. Elizabeth Thirsk, daughter of William Thirsk and Grace Ella, was born on 21 Oct 1792 in Cottingham, York, England, died on 23 Jan 1835 in Romeo, Macomb, Michigan at age 42, and was buried in Washington Twp, Macomb, Michigan, , Brabb Cemetery.

General Notes: Source of marriage: IGI England, County of York, as of Mar 1988.

Source of birth and death: Family group sheet from Kenneth Virgil Brabb. (Note: He indicated birth 23 Jan 1799 which is apparently supported by the IGI.)

However, a letter to me from David Sinclair Thirsk on September 12, 1999, indicated a birthdate of 21 Oct 1792. He said: Notes for ELIZABETH THIRSK: There is some question as to the birth date of Elizabeth. Some claim 23 Jan 1799 while others claim 21 Oct 1792. Her birth place is accepted as Cottingham, most probably in Skidby. Since her siblings William, born 1796, James, born 1798, and Richard, born 1799, were all born in Sculcoates it follows that a 1799 birth would have been there. Birth in Cottingham supports the 1792 date.

This is confirmed by David's later message: From: David Thirsk <dthirsk@mindspring.com>
Date: Mon, 18 Oct 1999 07:27:34 -0600

Further to this file: I have just received a letter from the man who does my research in Yorkshire and he has
checked the Cottingham parish register for the birth date of Elizabeth Thirsk and confirms the 1792 birth year.

Elizabeth married George Brabb(S) 19 20 on 16 Nov 1819 in North Cave, York, England.

26. Alpheus Putnam, son of Samuel Putnam and Ruth Spencer, was born on 29 Aug 1795 in Charlestown, Sullivan, New Hampshire and died on 9 Jun 1875 at age 79.

Alpheus married Sarepta Dudley 19 20 before 1843 in Napoleon, Jackson, Michigan.

The child from this marriage was:

13        i.  Antonette Putnam. Antonette married William Thirsk Brabb on 4 Jan 1858 in Napoleon, Jackson, Michigan.


27. Sarepta Dudley,19 20 daughter of Bela Dudley and Roxsea Phelps, was born about 1799 in Napoleon, Jackson, Michigan and died on 21 Mar 1885 about age 86.

General Notes: LDS IGI inidcates a Saropta Dudley born about 1799 of Napoleon, Jackson, Michigan. Husband Alpheus Putnam.

The LDS Ancestral File has Saropto Dudley as AFN: 17Q0-HDT born 1799 in Charlestown, Sullivan, New Hampshire with husband Alpheus Putnam. This entry was submitted by DAVID F. PUTNAM, 1173 N 350 W CENTERVILLE UT USA 84014 as Submission: AF83101810.

My personal submission to the Ancestral File in 1997 list her as Serepta Dudley AFN: 20SS-8R0 born about 1799 in Napoleon, Jackson, Michigan. This was based on family group sheets passed down through the Brabb/Milholland families.

"John Boyer Ruppe & Ella Antonette Brabb - Their Ancestors & Descendants" compiled by Shirley Ann Ruppe Oldacker in December 1985 is the basis of the ancestry of Sarepta Dudley. This text has information that conflicts somewhat with the information from the IGI and the LDS Ancestral File. It says:

Sarepta Dudley, born February 12, 1807, at Wocester, Otsego, New York; died March 21, 1885, probably at Rocford, Kent, Michigan, age 78.

Sarepta's first husband was Henry Annable. They had a son George, he was born at Avon, New York. Her second husband was Alpheus Putnam. They were married on June 9, 1835, this was the first marriage for Alpheus. Their daughter Antonette was born at Napoleon, Michigan.

Later, Alpheus, Sarepta and their two children moved to Cannon township, near Rockford, Michigan.

Sarepta and Alpheus are listed with her son George Annable in the 1860 and 1870 census. In the 1880 census, Sarepta is listed with her daughter Antonne and son-in-law William F. Brabb in Salt River Township, Shelby County, Missouri.

Alpheus and Sarepta are buried at Grand Rapids, Michigan. It is not known where Sarepta's first husband, Henry Annable is buried. 19 20

Sarepta married Henry Annable before 1829.

The child from this marriage was:

          i.  George Cowers Annable was born on 24 Jun 1829 in Avon, Livingston, New York and died on 20 Jul 1907 in Grand Rapids, Kent, Michigan at age 78.

Sarepta next married Alpheus Putnam before 1843 in Napoleon, Jackson, Michigan.

Sixth Generation (3rd Great-Grandparents)



32. Milholland History, son of Unknown and Unknown.

General Notes: I (RCL) have been tracing my wife's Milholland line for years and am at a dead end with her great great grandfather James Christopher Milholland who was born in Greensburg, Decatur County, Indiana in 1851. I am fairly sure his parents were James Milholland and Jane Lynn. There is a possibility that James's father is John Milholland who died in Franklin County, Indiana in 1814.

I am posting this genealogy on my Rootsweb Freepage so that other Milholland researchers might help me with my research. After you have read through this, go to http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~royc/milholland/ and take a look at my rendition of my wife's Milholland genealogy. Number 95, Sibyl Milholland is my wife's mother.

When I am a little more sure of myself and better organized, I will replace my royc-Milhollan database on Rootsweb/Ancestry.com.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For further research, I am including several unproved Milholland links to this record that have their origins in Butler County, OH and Franklin and Decatur Counties, IN in the late 1700s and early 1800s.

On the 24th day of March, 1803, the General Assembly of the State of Ohio passed "An act for the division of the counties of Hamilton and Ross," (Laws of Ohio, Vol. 1, page 9.) by which act the county of Butler was established, comprehending the country included within the following boundaries: Beginning at the northeast corner of section number seven, in the third township of the second range in the Miami purchase; running thence west to the State line; thence north with the State line to a point due west from the middle of the fifth range of townships of the Miami purchase; thence east to the Great Miami River; and bounded on the east by the Miami River and a line running north on the section line from the place of beginning to the Miami River.

For orientation purposes, Butler County is on the IN/OH border, contiguous to Butler County. Decatur County is contiguous with the western border of Franklin County. (Darlene Osborne Leggitt's great grandfather, James Christopher Milholland was born 1851 in Greesnburg, Decatur County, IN.) From looking at the IN/OH borders in Bill Dollarhide's Map Guide to the U.S. Federal Censuses 1790 - 1920, it apparent that the division between Franklin and Butler counties was not clear until Indiana was granted statehood in the mid 1810's. It appears that the division between the western edge of the Northwest Territory (which included Ohio and Michigan) and the Indiana Territory established in July 1800 ran almost vertically through the center of present Franklin County. Franklin County was established in 1811 in the Indiana Territory. Indiana became the 19th state to join the Union in 1816.

We will also see that where Thomas Milholland and George Drybread settled on Dry Fork and Paddy's Run in 1803. Morgan Township, Butler County, Ohio is contiguous with White Water Township, Franklin County, Indiana where we see a Milholland presence in later records. John Milholland was a pioneer settler in Brookville which is contiguous with the northwest boundry of White Water Township. This places a lot of Milhollands in a circle with a six mile radius.

As an aid to see this relationship, I will list the townships in their geographical order:

Blooming Grove, IN
Brookville, IN Springfield, IN Reily, OH
Highland, IN Whitewater, IN Morgan, OH


Thomas Milholland was among the original settlers in the Butler/Franklin Counties. Here are two sources to support that:

The following came from http://www.rootsweb.com/~ohbutler/cyc/433.htm and is recorded here for future research:

During 1803 there settled on Dry Fork and Paddy's Run the families of Jacob PHILLIS, John and Samuel HARDEN, Bryson BLACKBURN, George DRYBREAD, John HOWARD, and Thomas MILHOLLAND.

I found the following while searching the USGenWeb for Logan County, OH:
Milholland, William, M.D. ---- PBRA p. 319-320 Portrait and biographical record of Auglaize, Logan and Shelby counties, Ohio : containing biographical sketches of prominent and representative citizens ... -- Chicago : Chapman Bros., 1892.+

Go to William Milholland's notes and you will see that biography.

Here is an excerpt about Thomas Milholland. Thomas Milholland, was a native of the green isle of Erin, and came with his parents to America when but a small boy. They settled in Indiana at a very early date, and although the country where they decided to locate was wild and unsettled and Indians were plentiful, the grandfather was a good marksman and had little fear. He reared thirteen children, most of whom still live, and became prominently identified with that part of the State. His son, George Milholland, father of our subject (William Milholland, M.D.), was born in Indiana in December, 1811, and was reared in Franklin County of that State.

Various sources, including The History of Franklin County, Indiana and Early Ohio Settlers: Southwestern OH, 1800-1840, Surnames, M - N, show that:

Jonathan Milholland recorded land in Green County, OH Dec. 31, 1804 09 04 17.

John Milhollund is listed in the Pioneer Settlement of Brookville township in 1805.

Little Cedar Grove Church was the first church organized in the Whitewater Valley. It was established by Elder William Tyner, who came with a colony from Virginia in 1797, and built a log church as early as 1805, about two or three miles southeast of Brookville. An article in the Primitive Monitor (1958) says the church was organized in 1806, and that Elder William Tyner, Conrad Saylor, John Milholland, Jabez Winship, John Hall, William G. Eads, James Winchel, John Quick, and their families were named among the earliest members of the church.

Thomas and William Millholland are listed in the 1850 federal census for Franklin County in the White Water township on the same page.

A Thomas Millholland, born about 1780 in PA, was apparently an early Franklin County resident. The 1850 Franklin County federal census indicates that at least three of his children were born in Indiana, Joseph about 1820. There are many mentions of a Thomas Sr. and a Thomas Jr. in several of the Franklin County documents.

Thus, it is quite clear that at least three adult Milholland males were in the Franklin/Butler Counties area very early in the nineteenth century, at least as early as 1805. It is very possible they were brothers. The Thomas who was born in about 1780 was born in PA according to the 1850 Franklin County federal census.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To give a general orientation of the probably migration paths of the various Milholland families, Melvin Milholland of Fayetteville, AR posted the following on the Ancestry.com Milholland Board:

1. Ireland to USA---------1700's

2. Settled in the Upper Shanondoah Valley as farmers;

3. Several families of Milhollands

4. 1800+/- -- split into 3 groups over religious beliefs;

5. First group went west into Ohio, Ind., Ill., and have existing families I have talked to in Kansas City [ lawyers ] , Amarillo,Tex. [ railroad Engineer ] , Colorado Springs [band director of Air Force Acad.].

6. Second group: Stayed in the upper end of the valley and scattered out to the Northeast, NY, PA, and east coast, and some moved down to Florida.

7. Third Group: ( My Family branch ) Moved south in the early 1800's through the Valley into the NC area. The locations I have heard from my relatives were Stoney Point, Statesville & Ire dell County. In early 1980's, I contacted a John Milholland at Statesville--he was born there, worked in St. Louis [?] & returned to retire. His wife and children still live in the area. He gave me a name of an elderly Aunt of his that never married, she was near age 90 at that time. She told me the story of Ireland, Upper Valley, family split, and her family history. ( She even remembered something about my family moving to Arkansas in the early 1880's, which will be listed below ). She remembered as a child large green Irish buttons her families would keep and put onto new coats. She said her Grandfather had 9 boys and 3 or 4 girls, one of the boys which was John's father or Grandfather, and one of which was my Grandfather's [ John Quincy ] father. The names I remember are as follows; Frank, John, William (Fred), Ralph, Thomas, Elizabeth, Sarah, [ I will try and find my list and put on later ]. My grandfather, John Quincy, was 18 months old in the early 1880's when his father moved from NC to south central Arkansas, in Bradley County, near Warren, Vicki, Angles, and Hermitage.

8. In the 1920's, my grandfather, John IQ. moved his large family to the southeast corner of Arkansas, near Lake Village, Chi cot County, AR. Community called "16 Section". No Milholland now lives in Lake Village.

9. In 1930's, my father,Ester Lee, along with my Grandfather and others, moved to south end of Chi cot County, near Fedora, AR, about 2 miles from La. and 8 miles form Miss. River.

10. From Lake Village and Fedora, some Milhollands moved to Little Rock, others moved north or south, Mo. La., Texas, Ok la, Ill.

11. I, Melvin AL., raised near Fedora, AR., still live in AR., Fayetteville for the past 32 years. My e-mail is Milholland@Malcolm. If any of the above makes a connection with your family, I would like to tie the lose ends together, by sharing information, so please e-mail, or call 501-575-0149. Jerry Milholland on the message Board is my brother. I have brother named Fred William, M.D., Charles, and sisters named Peggy Louis, and Barbara Jean.

12. My father's family names are; Ester Lee, Paul, William Coy, Clarence, Jane, Sally, Elizabeth, Adrian & Gravis.

Here is another email Melvin Milholland posted on the Ancestry.com surname board:

My brother Jerry responded above re Epp Milholland and John Quincy Milholland. (Jerry Milholland had posted: Uncle Epp is buried in Bradley Co.in Ark. His family is in McGhee,Dermott and Monticello area. I grew up in southeast ark. My grandfather is John Q. Milholland. His father came from No. Carolina in the mid 1800's.)These two were brothers from Bradley County. I understand Uncle Epp's children settled around McGree and Dumas after he got killed in a saw mill accident. My grand father John Quincy would not be your grandfather, but an uncle. Uncle Epp and my Grand father John Quincy's father ( my Great-Grand Father ) is buried beind a county church on the southeast side of Arkansas 15 between Hermitage and Warren. From Hermitage it is about five (5) miles on Hwy 15 northeast toward Warren. The Church building is white and adjacent to the highway.

My Grand Father John Quincy's family came to Bradley County, Arkansas from the Statesville, NC in the early 1880's. The Milhollands roots in the Stateville, NC area came from the upper Shannondoah Valley in the early 1800's. In 1981, I spoke to an elderly lady Milholland in Stateville, NC area, then in her 90's and never married, who remembered the story of the move of John Quincy Milholland family to south Arkansas. and the story of the Milholland family moving down the Shannondoah Valley, as well as the history of the Irish backround of the Milholland family.
She said in 1700's, several Milholland familys came to the upper Shannondoah Valley and all farmed together. After some time, religious differences separated the family into three groups. The Ohio group went west to Ind. and Ohio; The NC, now some in Arkansas, group went south to NC, and the others stayed around the NY or northeast area of the states.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The 1790 federal census tends to support this early Milholland migration. It list the following entries for the various spellings: NC 1; NY 2; PA 5; SC 2.

The 1800 federal census has: KY 1; MS 1; NC 1; NY 2; OH 2; PA 5; SC 1.

There is one entry for 1807 for John Milholland in Dearborn County, IN.

From all of this, it appears that at least John, Joseph and probably two Thomas Milhollands were born in the latter half of the eighteenth century and were among the earliest settlers of the Butler/Franklin County areas. Lets get them sorted out!!

From the above information it would appear our Milholland ancestors arrived from Ireland in the mid 1700s. If Melvin Milholland is correct, they first settled in the Upper Shenondoah Valley in what is now West Virginia and northern Virginia.

By 1780 when Thomas Milholland and his wife Margaret Drybread were born, our ancestors must have moved slightly west to Pennsylvania.

By 1803 both the Milholland and Drybread families had settled in Morgan Township, Butler County, Ohio.

Two years later John Milholland was among the pioneer settlers in Brookville Township, Franklin County, Indiana. Mary Milholland recorded land in Township 9, Franklin County in 1811. James Milholland recorded land in Township 8 in 1813 (in the same section contiguous to where Thomas Milholland recorded land in 1812.)

A Thomas Milholland, born 1798 in Kentucky, married Susannah Wallace Richey on 21 Mar 1821 in Brookville. He apparently resided in Franklin County until sometime between 1838 and 1841 when his family moved to Edgar County, Illinois. Jim Henderson says this Thomas' father was the Joseph Milholland who died in 1830.

Joseph Milholland died in Franklin County on Nov. 19, 1830 with four adult heirs. Thomas Milholland Sr. was executor of his estate.

Thomas Milholland, Jr. is listed in the 1830 Franklin County, Indiana federal census. He is between 30 and 40 and his wife is between 20 and 30. They have one son under 5 and two girls under 5 and one between 5 and 10.

The biography of William Milholland, M.D. (mentioned above) says Thomas Milholland reared thirteen children. The 1820 federal census for Springfield Township, Franklin County, Indiana lists Thomas and his wife as between 26 and 45 with four boys and five girls less than 10 and one girl between 10 and 16. The three additional children born in 1822, 1824, and 1827, according to the 1850 White Water Township, Franklin County census would confirm this.

On11 Feb 2004 Richard Clingman posted the following to the Ancestry Milholland message board:

I've looked though all the current Milholland postings and was fortunate enough to find two names from the May 2003 posting by Roy Leggitt that fill in blanks of the considerable information I have about my line of Milhollands.

I'm posting this with the hope that the information I have will connect with others, fill in some more of those elusive blanks and turn up a few new distant cousins!

My mother was Ruth Ann Milholland (born Coldwater Ohio, June 19, 1918).

In 1988, her aunt (Marie Jane Milholland, born San Francisco, CA. on March 21, 1908) finished authoring a 121 page book titled: "Visions of Roots and Branches - Memories of Certain Branches of the Milholland Family Tree."

Two years ago when my mother died, I inherited this book.

Marie was a catholic nun who spent her last years at the Mount Carmel Motherhouse in Dubuque, Iowa. This publication appears to have been produced under their auspices since "Mount Carmel Press; Dubuque, Iowa; 1988" is printed on the title page.

In it, she documents 7 generations of Milhollands. The earliest generation is simply shown as Grandpa and Grandma Milholland, married Nov. 19, 1824. No birthdate for Grandpa, but Grandmas birthdate is shown as Oct. 15, 1798. They had a son born in Terre Haute, Indiana on Oct. 29, 1827 named David Powers Milholland.

The book documents the 1876 migration of David Powers Milholland from Greencastle Indiana to South Lake Weir Florida. There are 9 pages of excerpts from a journal kept by Davids daughter (Martha Belle Milholland) containing details of the trip.

Traveling with the Milhollands was Rufus Edgar McMahan (born Owens County, Indiana; Mar. 20, 1847) who married Martha Belle the following year.

She appears to have done an excellent job of documenting the family tree.

Surnames that are linked to this line of Milhollands in this document are:
Milholland; Newkirk; McMahan; Clelland; Gale; Uppencamp; Trickler; Osterholt; Fischer; Boles; Flemming; Clingman; Slover; Pleasant; Gann; Vindigni; Sloan; Adams.

She also acknowledges the research help of a Beth Mills of Jacksonville, Florida and Virginia Engstrom of Live Oak, Florida (both apparently descendants of the McMahan line).

If you think any of these may provide pieces to the puzzle you're working on, post a reply here or send me an email and I'll provide more info.

In particular, I'd really like to fill in the "7th generation and beyond" gaps. What were the names of the parents of David Powers Milholland, and so on...

In September 2004 Judy Gowin jigodwin@verizon.net posted the following on the Ancestry.com Milholland message board:

Roy and Darlene--It was good to hear from you. Here is my Milholland line:

Rozanna (Anna/Rosa) b. 3 May 1844, Brockville, Ontario, Canada. d. 30 Dec 1914 in Denver, Arapahoe Co., CO. This info is taken from her Death Cert. There was no info on her parents except for the last name Mulholland.

I've searched thoroughly for Anna with her family under all the spellings of this surname. Anna was married to James Reuben Parks on 3 Jun 1862 in Marion, Hannibal Co., MO as Anna Maholland. (After not finding her under the Mulholland name for a long time, I became fixated on the Maholland surname.) Then with the home computer I was able to be even more thorough in my search and more successful. Thanks to the computer I was able to find another surname, as well, that was messed up and when found all the pieces fit. Anyway, I've spent years searching for Anna's family, even paid a Mr. MacKenzie in Canada to search for me and he DID come up with an Anna Mulholland (only born two years earlier) that was born there and baptized in the Catholic Church there in Brockville, but he didn't carry that search far enough. He told me her family must have left Canada by 1850 because they were not on the 1850 census, but my library research did find the family in another area of Ontario both in 1850 and 1860. She would have been in the US. Well, I did finally find her with her family in Wisconsin--I almost fell over because she was the only one born in Canada and now I understand why (I was expecting a Canadian family). They had migrated from NY to Wisconsin, then to Michigan and it looks like they were farmers and probably found work across the border where Anna was their only child to be born there. They had a big family with some of the children being born in NY, some in Wisconsin and some in Michigan and then in Iowa.
On 25 Jul 1850 in Wawwatosa, Milwaukee Co., Wisconsin:

James Milholland (b. 1806 Sempronius, Cayuga Co., NY, d. aft 1880 , Dubuque Co., Iowa. md. abt 1830 ,,NY to Huldah b. 1816 , , NY.) age 44, NY;
Huldah 34 NY;
Perry 19 NY;
Emily 17 NY;
Loiza/Loviza 16 NY;
Isabard 13 male Wisconsin;
Cyrus 10 Wisc.;
James 8 Wisc.;
Rozanna 6 Canada;
Lorzes/Alonzo 3 Wisc.

On the 25 Aug 1860 Census in Centre twp, Dubuque Co., Iowa two sons were born.

William in 1860 was 9 from Iowa and
Stephen 6 from Iowa.

There has been a George Milholland that followed James around on all of these census. In 1850 George was 26 from NY--about 18 years younger than James, Sr. & George married by 1860, but was still with James on the census.

James answered that his father was from Ireland and his mother from Saxon on the 1880 Iowa Census. I've found those who had married or died in the Civil War in this family. I believe Emily Milholland (Markham) married in Iowa as her children were born there, but moved to MO by 1870 where she was found to be a widow. While searching the New York 1810 Federal Census I found only one Milholland and that was Henry, and then again on the 1820. Both in Sempronius twp, Cayuga Co., NY. Since James was born in 1806 the chances are good that in 1810 the only Milholland in NY (Henry) was his father. By 1830 Henry had passed on and it showed Susan Milholland the head of the family in Sempronius twp, Cayuga Co., NY. Of course I have compared the best I can, the children and their ages, to make sure they match up. If you have anything that you can add on this line I would love to have it. I know that I need to do all I can to find more, but feel I am on track. If you want the extended family, that is, the marriages and family of each of James' children, I will send that next. As far as my Rozanna Milholland Parks, she and her husband were in Denver by 1880 and was widowed in 1882 with 4 children. Her son, my grandfather Arthur Leroy Parks married for the first time at the age of 40 to my 18 year old grandmother, Opal Brown. That made my generation closer to Anna's (Rozanna). My grandmother Brown named one of her daughter's Rozanna. --My best to you and Darlene. Stay young and continue to enjoy your RVing. Judy in Coppell, TX (near Dallas/Ft.Worth)

Interestingly, based on Judy's lead above, I did a search of the 1880 federal census for individuals whose father was born in IRE (Ireland) and only found 29 individuals. 12 of those were born in IRE, 6 in Maryland, 5 in Pennsylvania, 3 in New York, 2 in Ohio, and 1 in Michigan. None were born in Indiana or Kentucky where many of our Milholland ancestors were born. The two born in Ohio were a young brother and sister whose parents were born in Ireland.

Of these 29, 14 were living in PA, 5 in MD, 4 in OH (see above), 3 in NJ, and one each in IL, MI, and RI.

Thus, there is no indication here that the KY, OH, and IN Milhollands had immediate Irish roots.

The saga continues!

A Genealogical and Biographical Record of Decatur County Indiana. Chicago: The Lewin Publishing Co., 1900. Pp. 423-426 contains a biography of his grandson Aaron Davis. It says Matthias Davis was born in Wales, of Welsh and Scotch parentage, and came to America at an early day, his first permanent settlement being in Kentucky near Mount Sterling. He was a farmer by occupation and served in the war of 1812. He raised his family on the Kentucky homestead and in 1830 he, with all his children, married and single, excepting three, came to Indiana and settled in Franklin county. He entered land and improved a farm on Salt Creek in the township of that name. (RCL: Probably is Sand Creek, near Westport, Decateur County.) Mr. Davis was a member of the New Lights church and was an honest, industrious man, well thought of in his community. He died in 1840. His children were ten in number; Melinda; James (father of our subject), Joseph, Elizabeth, Isaac, Daniel, Allen, Ambrose, William and Matthias.

Hi Roy and Darlene,
I'm going to send you three separate emails with three separate attachment.
One will be the picture, one the gedcom, and one, a biography of Lucinda's
uncle, Aaron Davis, which appeared in a Decatur Co. IN history. It was the
starting point for all my Davis research. There was one inaccuracy which
may turn out to be a great clue, nontheless. It says that Aaron's
grandfather, Matthias Davis, married a Miss McClellan, a relative of Gen.
George B. McClellan. I have corresponded with a descendant of Matthias
Davis Jr. whose family Bible said that Matthias Davis married Sarah Rulon.
Indeed there is a record of Matthias Davis marrying Sarah Rulon 1 March
1796 in Clark Co., KY. I haven't been successful in finding the Rulon
family in Kentucky, in spite of the rarity of the name. It seems to have
originated in the New Jersey/Pennsylvania area. George Brinton McClellan's
paternal ancestors were fairly recent Scottish immigrants to Connecticut.
His mother's Brinton ancestors were an old family of Philadelphia. I think
the "kernal of truth" to this story is that there may be some connection to
the Brinton family though I haven't found it yet.

Also included is a biography of Martha (Smothers) Davis's cousin, Eldridge
Hopkins, and his parents, William Hopkins and Sarah (Smothers or Smathers)
and family. I have additional information about other children of Andrew
Smothers but that isn't in the gedcom. I've concentrated on Hugh Smothers's
sister, Sarah, and her family because 1. Hugh's second wife was supposedly
a Hopkins; 2. The Hopkins also lived in Decatur Co. IN; and 3. The Hopkins
went to Iowa as supposedly Hugh did too.

Lucinda Davis' stepmother, Catherine (Blose) Himelick Davis was the widow
of Daniel Himelick, a brother to my father's great grandmother, Catherine
(Himelick) Underwood. A Thomas J. Milholland married another Catherine
Himelick, 14 Mar 1867 in Decatur Co. I think she may have been the daughter
of John and Sarah (Blose) Himelick. (brother of Daniel and Catherine
Himelick and sister of Catherine Blose). I don't know anything about this
Thomas or their family yet. My father grew up in Sand Creek Township,
Jennings Co. One of their neighbors were Silas and Mary (Tomlinson)
Milholland. I've found information on the Internet that Silas was probably
the son of Thomas Milholland and Matilda Gant who also married in Franklin
Co., IN. The family always called him "Uncle Si". It turns out that Daddy's
grandfather's step-mother, Lucy (Barr) Roane, had a brother Charles Barr
who married a Mary Milholland on 22 Sep 1886 in Jennings Co. According to
the IGI, Silas had a sister Mary so maybe this is why he was "Uncle". Whew!
My mother, of course is the Davis and though I've found that she and Daddy
are related to a lot of the same people, they aren't related to each other
(at least, not yet). These were all in-law and step relationships but I
have an interest in the Milhollands on both sides too.

I found our Sarah Rulon on a user page at Family Tree Maker:

http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/h/i/g/Stephen-K-Higham/GENE3-0006.html?Welcome=985368170

I don't know how accurate it is, but interestingly, she supposedly had a
sister who married a James McLeland. "Sounds like" McClellan! The question
is, what was she doing out the wilds of Kentucky at the tender age of 17
with her parents still in New Jersey? However she is supposed to have a
brother, Joseph, also in Kentucky. Her second listed son was named Joseph.
More research to be done, but it's a good lead.

In the History of Decatur County, Indiana, on the subject of James Davis, it reads. James Davis,born in 1798 died in 1866, was married in Kentucky to Martha Smathers, a daughter of Hugh Smathers, a native of Ireland, who immigrated to America, took part in the Indian wars and in the War of 1812 and went to Kentucky, where he married and prospered. In 1830 he came to Indiana and ten years later emigrated to Iowa, where he spent the remainder of his life. Hugh Smathers was married twice, his second wife who was a Miss Hopkins, having been the mother of three children, Hugh, Sabina, and Benjamin. .....

Note. According to all the Census Research and other records, the information in this history is almost all wrong. Hugh did not immigrate from Ireland, nor did he move to Iowa and spend the rest of his life. This information has been checked against the Iowa State Records and there is nothing to confirm this. Also his will in Franklin County, Indiana pretty much tells us that this man died in the state and county. Maybe the Hugh that moved to Iowa was Hugh Smothers Jr., instead... information from Smethers Society Gazette, published Aug. Sep. 1999 Issue no. 2.

Will of Hugh Smothers, Sr. Decatur County Indiana Will Record A

In the name of God Amen. I, Hugh Smothers, Sr., a citizen of the United States of the state of Indiana, and County of Decatur do make and ordain declare this instrument which is write by Joseph Himer, to be my last will and testament, revoking all others. 1" That after my decease my body will be decently interred. 2" That all my debts of which there are but few and none of magnitude are to be punctually and specially paid and the legally herein after bequeathed are to be attended to as soon as circumstances will permit. 3" That my daughter Martha Smothers is to have one hundred dollars and the bed and bedding that formerly belonged to her now deceased mother. 4" It is further my will that my mother Martha Smothers have my daughter Martha with the bed and bedding to exercise parental care over her so long as my said mother lives or until my daughter arrives at the age of eighteen years. 5" It is further my will that after all the above items are punctually attended to that my beloved wife Mary have all the residue of my personal worth and the control and benefit of my real estate so long as she remains my widow. 6" I further direct if it shall happen that if my wife Mary Smothers should marry then in that case the laws of the land are to be executed in settling up the estate. 7" And lastly I do hereby constitute and appoint Joseph Hiner to be executor of this my last will and testament. In witness of each and all the things herein contained I have hereunto set my hand and seal. Hugh Smothers (seal) Attest George P. Shelton Isaac C. Davis Eldridge Hopkins William Hopkins.

The State of Indiana Decatur County Set Be it remembered that on this day to wit the 7th day of September 1841,personally appeared before me the signed Clerk of the Probate Court of the county and State aforesaid, Joseph Hiner who being duly sworn says that the annexed instrument is the last will and testament of Hugh Smothers, deceased........sworn to and subscribed before me this day and year above written. Henry H. Talbott Clk. Probate Court Decatur Co., Ind. Recorded September 7, 1841.

Andrew Smothers, Hugh's father died in Bath County, Kentucky, and in his will he list's his wife as being Elizabeth at the time of his death, and his children as follows: Thomas, Joseph, Ann, Margaret, Martha, Sally, Hugh, John, Elizabeth and Susannah.....

The History of Decatur County, Indiana, says that Hugh Smothers, Sr., is an immigrant of Ireland, however the will of Andrew Smothers of 1824 proves this to be incorrect. Hugh is named as a child of Andrew Smothers, when his father died in Bath County, Kentucky.

Hugh Smothers, Sr., is listed in the 1810 Kentucky census located in Barren County, KY, at the age of 26-25, by 1819 Hugh Smothers Sr., and his family are in Floyd County, Kentucky, before 1824, Hugh Smothers, Sr. has moved to Franklin County, Indiana, which can be proved by the marriage of his daughter Sobrina Smothers to William P. Snelling in June 10, 1824 in Rush County, Indiana. Rush county being just northeast of Franklin County. On 8 July 1829 with a possible double ceremony, Hugh Smothers, Jr., married Nancy Snelling and Andocial Smothers married Bernard Snelling in Decatur County, Indiana. William P., and Bernard Snelling are the children of William and Margaret Snelling, proven by the will of William Snelling June 1822 - March 1831, in Decatur County, Indiana.

Hugh Smothers, Sr., in listed in the 1830 Indiana Census on page 310 along with his sons Hugh Smothers, Jr. on the same page, and Rueben Smothers on page 312 in Franklin County. In the 1840 census both Hugh Smothers Sr., at the age of 70-80 and his second wife Mary Hopkins Smothers at the age 40-50.

The fact remains, Hugh Smothers, Sr., was born in Washington County, Virginia, which is located in the southwestern part of Virginia, right below Smyth County and right on the Tennessee and North Carolina borders in present day. This makes one question if Andrew, Hugh's father came from Virginia or North Carolina. And who was Andrew's father? Is it Thomas Smothers or one of the many John Smothers?

There is 6 pages of information on Hugh Smothers, Sr., that is contained in the Smethers Society Gazette, this is just a small portion of it. This was published in August September 1999 Issue #2, by Loretta A. Smethers Stuber, L.A.S.S. Publications, 14606 South Alden Street, Olathe, Kansas 66062.

Hello everyone, I think I can help clear up some of the confusion as to the names of Hugh Smothers' wives. According to the biography of Hugh grandson, Aaron Davis, son of James Davis and Martha Smothers, which appeared in a Decatur Co., IN history, his mother was the only child of Hugh's first marriage. The name of this first wife was not given. Then according to the account, Hugh married a "Miss Hopkins" and had Benjamin, Hugh Jr. and Sabrina. As far as I know, this is the sole basis for thinking that this was indeed her surname.

Now to the evidence of the will of Hugh Smothers "Sr." I sent my mother to the Indiana State Library to get a complete copy. It is soon obvious from the contents that this is not the will of Hugh Sr. but of Hugh Jr.! Somewhere along the line someone must have misread or miscopied "J" as "S" into the records, since this is not the original but a clerk's copy. Hugh Sr.'s daughter Martha had been married since 1819 and was probably close to 40 years old by this time. She was certainly not a minor child. Based on the land records of Washington Co. VA, Hugh's parents' names were Andrew and Sarah. By the time Andrew made his will in Bath Co., KY, his wife's name was Elizabeth. In any case, her name wasn't Martha and she certainly couldn't have been still alive..

On 8 July 1829, Hugh Jr. married Nancy Snelling in Decatur Co. Apparantly she died, because Hugh Jr. remarried on April 18, 1833 Franklin Co. IN. to Mary Fitzpatrick. According to a message from Patty Carson, they had three daughters:

1. Rachel Smothers b/Jan. 24, 1834 IN. d/around 1910 married #1 Thomas Eubanks
m/ #2 Ben Douglas (I have a picture of Rachel and Ben Douglas.)
2. Sarah Ann Smothers b/July 13, 1837 IN. d/Feb. 13, 1877 m/ William Christy (5 children).
3. Elizabeth Ellen Smothers (our ancestor) b/Aug. 24,1839 d/May 11, 1916 Decatur Co. In. married/Oct. 4,1864 to George W. Carson.

Special mention was made for the minor child, Martha, because she was from his first marriage to Nancy Snelling. Mary Fitzpatrick Smothers (remarried William Eubank, 16 Sep 1847 in Decatur Co.) was her stepmother and inherited all the property to be able to look after her own children. Therefore, Mary WAS the name of Hugh Jr.'s wife and so his mother was named Martha. Interestingly, his father, Hugh Sr. was not mentioned. Perhaps he was already dead. Aaron Davis' biography said he died in Iowa about 1840.

By the way, the executor of the will, Joseph Hiner, was Hugh Jr.'s cousin by marriage. Joseph Hiner had married Abiah Hopkins, daughter of William Hopkins and Sarah Smothers. All the witnesses were probably kin too. George Shelton (a George P. Shelton married Hugh's cousin, Sarah Davis, in 1841. They were later divorced in Iowa), Isaac C. Davis (brother to Martha Smothers' husband James? He had a brother Isaac that I haven't researched) Eldridge Hopkins (another cousin) and William Hopkins (probably his uncle, Willliam Sr. since William Jr. was born in 1823 and was still under 21 but who knows).

A Martha Smithers married Greenup Herron on 13 Sep 1843 in Bartholomew Co., IN. Patty Carson thinks this is Hugh Jr.'s daughter Martha but she would have only been about 13 years old. Patty also says that they went to Shelby Co., IN. I haven't tried to track them down there yet, but hopefully such a distinctive name shouldn't be so hard to find (famous last words).

I think we can safely say that the name of Hugh Smother's first wife is still unknown and that his second wife and mother of Hugh Jr. was named Martha, said to be Hopkins. Obviously, more evidence needs to be found to verify that. The fact that Hugh Sr.'s sister Sarah married William Hopkins makes his extended the family the first place to look. It also makes it more a possibility that Aaron confused some of the facts. That's been known to happen too.

Martha married Hugh Smothers.

48. John Brabbs,19 20 son of William Brabs and Elizabeth Newsham, was born on 30 Aug 1761 in Riccall, Yorkshire, England and died before 6 Apr 1820 in Riccall, Yorkshire, England.

However, after reviewing some recent correspondence, a newly discovered book, and the current IGI, it appears that theirparents were Absalom Brabbs and Ann Moore.

While at the LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake City in the fall of 1999 I ran across a text entitled "John Boyer Ruppe & Ella Antonette Brabb - Their Ancestors & Descendants" Compiled by Shirley Ann Ruppe Oldacker, December 1985. (It may be available on microfilm or fiche.) Starting on page 155 there is a 35-page section of Brabb Family history. It even includes a photo of Dorothy Alberta Brabb as a child. The section starts with:

The first known progenitor of the Brabb family is Absalom Brabb. The first record of him is his marriage to Ann Moore in 1794 at North Cave, Yorkshire, England. Neither his parents nor his wife's parents names have been found in the parish records.

The names of two sons born to Absalom and Ann were listed in the parish records of North Cave. The older son Isaac was born October 6, 1794. He married Hanna Hudson Scalbut, November 26, 1817 at North Cave. The second son of Absalom and Ann Brabb, George, was born March 7, 1799. On the christening record of his son George, Absalom Brabb's occupation was listed as a skinner.

This is supported by the following message from a fellow Brabb researcher:

Roy,

I know that the IGI has John & Jane listed as the parents. I do have them listed in my database as "unknown parents" BECAUSE I have the following information:
1.)Absalom Brabb m. Ann Moore in 1794 at North Cave Parish, Yorkshire, England.
2.) The North Cave Parish records list the names of 2 sons born to Absalom and Ann: Isaac & George. Isaac, the oldest, was born 6 Oct. 1794. (Isaac later married Hannah Hudson in the same parish)
3.) The Macomb County, Michigan death record of Isaac Brabb lists his parents' names as Absalom & Betsey Brabb of England. There has been no confirmation at this point that Ann & Betsey are the same person or that Absalom married more than one woman.

Asabel married Jefts Rhody on 12 May 1837. Asabel next married Thankful Frances Davis on 31 Aug 1859 in Newport, Sullivan Co, New Hampshire.


53. Ruth Spencer, daughter of Joseph Spencer and Lucy Dart, was born on 9 Apr 1771 in Surry, Cheshire, New Hampshire and died on 21 Mar 1855 in Charlestown, Sullivan, New Hampshire at age 83. Ancestral File Number: P65X-0H.

General Notes: Note by RCL: I found that Ruth Spencer was in the LDS Ancestral File under AFN:P65X-0H. By the time I followed that line back 26 generations I had identified in excess of 3,000 ancestors and immediate relatives. These involved the Courtnay and Plantangenet families with many links to European royalty maintained by the LDS Medieval Unit. Since these records are easily accessible by anyone at any LDS Family History Center, I have only included five generations here (which only added 360 records to my database).

Some minor differences existed from the data I previously had and that contained in AFN:P65X-0H. I had the birth date as 9 Feb 1711 and the AF indicated 9 Apr 1711. This three month difference is quite common on dates prior to 1753 when the first month of the year changed from March to January. The second difference was the location of death. I had the location listed as Charlestown, Sullivan County,. NH (from Eben Putnam's text) , the AF has Acworth, Sullivan County, NH.

The final difference is that the LDS AF only has once child listed, Asahel, whereas this child is not listed in Eben Pubnam's "The Putnam Family in England and America."

Ruth married Samuel Putnam on 15 Nov 1789 in Surry, Cheshire, New Hampshire.

54. Bela Dudley,29 son of Noah Dudley and Submit Tallman, was born on 25 Dec 1765 in Either Guilford Or Roxbury, Connecticut 30 31 and died on 26 Jan 1855 at age 89.

General Notes: Bela lived at Sandsgate, Vermont at one time. Bela, Roxsea and their family were living at Williston, Chittenden, Vermont in 1810. The family also lived in New York for a while. Their daughter, Sarepta, was born in Worchester, Otsego County. In 1820 they were living in Dansville, Steuben County.

Bela and his family do not appear in the census records for 1830 or 1840, in the states of New York, Vermont, Connecticut, or Michigan. In 1850 Bela and Roxsea are living in the home of their daughter, Sarepta Putnam, in Cannon, Kent, Michigan.

Roxsea died October 1852 in Cannon, Michigan. Research has not revealed their burial place. Sarepta and her husband Alpheus Putnam are buried at Grand Rapids, Michigan, but the Dudley's are not there.

Census records list other children for this couple but no names or other information is available. It is not known if Sarepta is the oldest or not.

Information from Bettye Cooper Lowery, Aug. 25th, 2000. Notes from James Smithers, Miamisburg, Ohio.

The first Smithers that we know of this time is Andrew Smothers/Smithers from the city of Abingdon, county of Washington in the state of Virginia. It is said that Andrew and Sarah were born and married in England. I was in Abindon, county of Washington in the state of Virginia in July, 1996. I copied an indenture between Andrew Smithers and his wife Sarah and Edward and Agnes Farris for a parcel of land Containing two hundred sixty acres lying and being in the county of Washington, a branch of the middle fork of the Holstein River. Andrew paid 90 pounds the current money of Virginia. The date was May 1, 1793.

On November 23, 1793 Andrew and wife Sarah sold to a William Reagan the above same land for 150 pounds located on a branch of the middle fork of the Holstein River. I would say that he was a shewrd business man. They must have left shortly after this event because he shows up in Bath County, Ky. in the early 1800's.

(RCL note: He was still in VA in 1807 - CHRONICLES OF THE Scotch-Irish Settlement IN VIRGINIA EXTRACTED FROM THE ORIGINAL COURT RECORDS OF AUGUSTA COUNTY 1745-1800 CIRCUIT COURT RECORDS, SECTION "I." JUDGMENTS. page 246 Thompson vs. Thompson--O. S. 349; N. S. 126--Bill, 1810, by John Thompson, Jr. In 1805 orator was living in Louisa and went to Washington County to visit his mother and while there he proposed to purchase land from Elijah Carpenter. His uncle, Jno. Thompson, was living in Louisa and they together bought the land, and they both moved there. Uncle John conveyed all his property to Wilson Quarles of Caroline and sold his portion of the land to George Byars. Deed, 2d October, 1807, by Elijah Carpenter and wife Elizabeth to John Thompson, Jr. and Sr., of Washington County, 400 acres in Washington County, corner Andrew Smothers ...)

Andrew Smithers/Smothers wrote a will in Bath County, Ky., dated Sep. 4, 1824. In his will he states that his wife Elizabeth should have 50 acres of land, as long as she lives a single life. If she remarries, she is only to have her third of the place, and at her death it is to return to his children.

He also leaves his wife one third part of all his personal estate. The balance of hs estate was to be divided amongst his children equally, that is to say Thomas Smathers, Joseph Smathers, Ann Jackson, Martha Fowler, Margaret Bristo, Sally Hopkins, Hugh Smathers, and he leaves to John Smathers, Elizabeth Fuget and Susanna Gipson, one dollar each. He appoints John McNabb as his Executor in his last will and statement.

Given under my hand this 4th day of September, 1824.

Names taken from will of Andrew Smothers filed 1824 Bath county, Ky. Kentucky Genelogist Vol. 11 #4.

In May of 1827, his will was produced and proven to be Andrew Smither's last will and testament.

Names taken from will of Andrew Smothers filied 1824 Bath County, Kentucky. Kentucky Genelogist Vol 11 #4.

Also found in Washington County, Virginia a register of marriages listing Thomas Smathers and Rebecca John/St.John marriage on September 19, 1799. I found on the same list a mariage of Noah St.John to Cais Blomer on May 20, 1797. Could this be Rebecca's brother?

On Dec. 8, 1806 a parcel of land lying and being in the county of Washington, containing 100 acres for the sum of $400.00 was sold to William Smithers. This land was also on the waters of the Holstein River. Since this land is near Andrew Smathers land, could William Smithers be a brother to Andrew or another relative?

The records of Rev. Joseph Howe, Presbyterian minister, report that Andrew Smathers married Elizabeth Howe, April 30, 1807. The deeds of Washington county, Va., indicate that Andrew's prior wife was Sarah.

It appears that Russell county, Virginia may hold a clue to the father of Andrew Smothers, not surprising as Russell county was formed from none other than Washington county, Virginia. Two John Smothers living very close together, one served in the Rev. War, the other shows up later with Andrew, could be the John Smothers brother to Andrew.

ID: I19338 Name: Joel Rulon Sex: M Birth: 17 JAN 1703 in Kingston, Ulster County, New York Death: DEC 1773 in Stafford Township, Monmouth County, New Jersey Occupation: constable Note:

Joel Rulon (Rolland) was baptized in Kingston, Ulster County, New York on 17 January 1703 [Hoes B#1366]. The witnesses were Jan Roelan (sic), Catharina de Duytser, and Lean Matthyssen.

Joel Rulon lived in Jamaica, New York until at least 1727, when the birth of his daughter Sarah was registered in the records. She was said to be "daughter of Joel and Gertruy Rulon of Jamaica."

Joel Rulon was the constable for Stafford Township, Monmouth County (now Ocean County), New Jersey, in 1754 and 1755. In the 1755 Quarter Court Session he was absent from the meeting, "being so far distant."

Joel Rulon and Joel Rulon Jr. were sued for 148 pounds, 12 shillings (each) in the Quarter Court Session of July 24, 1751, in Monmouth County, New Jersey, by Grace Vahan. Nothing further is known about this suit.

Joel Rulon's will was filed in Monmouth County, New Jersey, in 1773; the probate and inventory were filed early in the following year. It is significant, considering what is known about Joel's son Luke, that alone of Joel's sons he was the recipient of only five pounds; apparently Joel knew his ne'er-do-well son well enough. All three documents are transcribed, verbatim, below:

I, Joel Rulon of Stafford in the County of Monmouth in the Province of New Jersey, being very weak in body, but of perfect mind and memory, do make this my last will and testament, discarding all other wills and testaments. First I will that my just debts and funeral charges be paid and discharged by my executors as soon as may be after my death. Item I give to my son Luke the sum of five pounds. Item I give to my daughter Sarah the sum of five pounds. Item I give to my daughter Desiah the sum of five pounds. Item I give to my daughter Phebe the sum of five pounds. Item I give to my daughter Mary the sum of five pounds. Imprimis I will and bequeath all the remainder of my Estate to be sold by my Executors, hereafter mentioned and equally divided between my three sons namely Nathaniel, David, and Ephraim, to them and their heirs and assigns forever and further do direct and appoint my three sons namely Nathaniel, David, and Ephraim to be my true and lawfull executors to this my last will and testament in witness thereof I have herewith set my hand and seal this twenty ninth day of November 1773.

Signed, sealed, published pronounced, and declared to be my last will and testament in the presents of us

I recieved about 15 pages of an article on William Bill Smothers today, it
has some interesting information.

William was 12 years old at the time of his parent's death. There were two
other children: James aged nine and Mollie aged seven. One of the neigbor's
a newcomer, having no place of his own, proposed to take care of these
orphan children for the rent of the farm. This was agreed upon and he moved
in. During that same year William went to live with an Uncle in Virginia,
who agreed to give him a good education and $100 in money when he became of age. This Uncle, whose name was Chrisman, was a man who worshipped the rich and scorned the poor. He was so cruel and overbearing to his orphan nephew that the latter ran away from him in a few years.

If we look at this article, printed in History of Daviess County, Kentucky
1883, then we know that William had a brother James and a sister Mollie.
Chrisman was the name of his Uncle, whom he went to live with in Virginia. 21

Smothers married.

The child from this marriage was:

84        i.  Andrew Smothers. Andrew married Sarah ___ about 1761 in Virginia Or England. Andrew next married Elizabeth Howe on 30 Apr 1807 in Probably Bath, Knott, Kentucky.

208. Seth Putnam, son of Thomas Putnam Sergeant and Ann Carr, was born in May 1695 in Salem Village, Essex, Massachusetts and died on 30 Nov 1775 in Charlestown, Sullivan, New Hampshire at age 80. Ancestral File Number: 2P4J-D6.

General Notes: Source: The Putnam Lineage, Eben Putnam, 1907.

Seth Putnam was one of the earliest of the Danvers Putnams to go forth into the wilderness and make a home for himself and family. In 1719, March 21, he bought of Samuel Walker, for £200, a house and sixty acres of land in Billerica, MA. His farm began at Shawshin bridge and was bounded by the river on the west. Here he lived until 1750 when he removed to wilderness post Number Four, now Charlestown, NH. This frontier post had been fearfully exposed to Indian attacks, and but three of the original grantees had settled there.

In 1746, Number Four had been abandoned by the inhabitants who took up their abode for the most part in Groton, Lunenburg and Leominster, Mass.

In 1747, the place was again garrisoned and on 21 June, 1751, a company of the settlers was organized with Phineas Stevens as captain. On the rolls of the company are found the names of two sons of Seth, viz., Ebeneazer and Thomas. The father was at Charlestown but not on the company rolls. Ebenezer Putnam also served under New Hampshire in 1755. In 1755 upon a petition of the inhabitants of Charlestown, fourteen in number, among whom were Seth and Ebenezer Putnam, Massachusetts again garrisoned the town. There had been ten Indian attacts between 1753-1755, and New Hampshire had failed to afford the town any protection.

On the 18 Feb., 1754, a committee which had been appointed by New Hampshire to examine into the claims of persons to lands at Charlestown, reported forty-three claims besides the heirs of Obadiah Sartwell. Among the forty-three were Mr. Seth Putnam, Ebenezer Putnam and Thomas Putnam, to each of whom was set apart 1/64 of the whole.

At the close of hostilities, Charlestown was no longer a frontier town and by 1760 a tide of emigration set in which soon filled the country with desirable settlers and gave the inhabitants of old Number Four, among them the Putnam family, the opportunity long wished for, to cultivate their farms and establish a flourishing town.

Seth Putnam helped form the first church at Charlestown and was one of the first ten members. He seems to have been highly respected by his neighbors.

On 14 Aug., 1753, the first town meeting at Charlestown was held and Seth Putnam was chosen tything man.

On his tombstone is the following inscription:
"The memory of the just is blest." on his wife's,
"Sweet soul we leave thee to thy rest till we shall meet thee above with Christ."

In "The History of Billerica" by Rev. Henry A. Hazen, printed in 1883, I found the following:

"PUTNAM. 1. Seth was the son of Thomas, of Danvers. John Putnam was the immigrant ancestor, who, with his wife Priscilla, came from Aston Abbot's, Bucks County, England, in 1640 to Salem. Three sons came with him, Thomas, born about 1618, the grandfather of our Seth, and of Gen. Israel; Nathaniel, born about 1621, grandfather of Israel (2), and John, born about 1630. Seth was born in May, 1695 and was "of Topsfield" on March 21, 1719, when he bought the house of Samuel Walker, for 200 pounds, house lot and 60 acres land here. His place was at Shawshin bridge, and was bounded by the river, west, and Hugh Ditson, south, whose line could not have been far from the highway to Woburn. He lived here for 25 years, and then became a grantee of No. 4, or Charlestown, N.H. and, with his family, was among the pioneers of that new settlement, where he died Nov. 30, 1775. His wife Ruth died Feb. 1, 1785, aged 92."

Seth married Ruth Whipple on 16 Sep 1718.

General Notes: The ancestors of Benjamin Badger were downloaded from the LDS Ancestral File (TM), data as of 2 January 1996. I only copied in about six generations. The Ancestral File contains many generations past this point.

213. Elizabeth Shailor 7 19 was born about 1701 in Haddam, Middlesex, Connecticut. Ancestral File Number: 31MK-2S.

General Notes: The Ruppe/Brabb text says Elizabeth Spencer probably married Timothy Olcott after John's death. Two facts point to this possibility. First, Elizabeth's son, James, chose Timothy Olcott, of Bolton, to be his gardian on May 24, 1743, James was sixteen years old at this time. Second, an Elizabeth Olcott from Haddam, was admitted to the Bolton church in July 1743.

John and Elizabeth's tow sons, James and Joseph, were living in Bolton in 1755 to 1757, when they sold some land they owned in Haddam.

Major Thomas Van Buskirk biography
by William Nelson


Tomas(2)Lourens(1) Andreisse Van Buskirk m. 1st Margritie Brickers; 2d, May 1720, Volckge or Volkertie Collier, y. d., on the Flatts at Lonenburg, now Athens, Greene county, N.Y. The entry in the records of the Zion Lutheran church at the latter place reads (translation):

1720 May 18
Thomas v. Boskerk of Hackensack, vid. Volkje colliers of Vlakte, Loonenburg.
In the records of the Luteran church at New York the marriage is entered under the dates May 15 and May 18, as follows;

At Lonenburg: Thomas Van Boschkerk, widower at Hackinsack, and Volckge Collier, Y.D., on the Flats, Lonenburg
He seems to have been a man of some prominence in his neighborhood. He was appointed a justice of the peace and an associate judge of the cournt of common pleas of Bergen county, January 21, 1714-15; he was again appointed a justice of the peace for the same county, August 25, 1725. Moreover, he figured in military circles, being referred to in 1724 as colonel. He seems to have become interested in Hunterdon county lands at an early date, which led to his ultimately removing thither. He was also concerned in the opening up of Morris county to settlement, as appears from this advertisement in The American Weekly Mercury, of Philadelphia, August 20-27, 1724
To be Sold by thomas Vanbuskirk of Hackensack and George Reyerson of Pacquenock, both of Bergen county, in New Jersey, a certain Tract of Land (commonly call'd or nam'd Bolens Lot;) containing about 1500 Acres Scituate in New Jersey in the county of Hunterdon, lying on both sides of a Branch of Pesayuck River, called Rockeway river about two miles above Humphrey Dewenports consisting of more than half low Land (fit for raising Wheat) with good Meadows; and the rest generally good high Land, well Timber'd. Those that are inclined to Purchase the same may Treat, and Agree with the Persons above mentioned, they being in Power to Sell the same.
The land in question must have been located about Montville, Morris (then Hunterdon) county.---N.J. Archives, II:82. He bought from John Johnson, of New York City, by deed dated June 3, 1718, for the consideration of £220, he being then of Bergen county, a tract of land on Saddle river, Bergen county.--West Jersey Deeds, Liber E, f. 128 He was again appointed a justice of the peace for Bergen county, August 23, 1725. It must have been later than that date that he took up his residence in Hunterdon county. On the occasion of the baptism of two of his childeren, in the Luteran church, Col. Abram de Peyster and wife Catharina, acted as witnesses or sponsors, by proxy. col. de Peyster was a prominent merchant in New York, and also figured lagely in the military and political events of the time. The fact that he and his wife were willing to appear as sponsors for Thomas's children, indicates a certain degree of friendship between the two families, perhaps founded on faithful service rendered by Thomas in th employ of de Peyster, or perhaps on notable military gallantry displayed by him under the doughty Colonel in some of the Colonial wars. In his will (which is without date), he describes himself as of Riding (Reading) township. The will was proved October 20, 1748 at Trenton. He gives to his wife an equal share with his sons, of his real and personal estate. He names children -- John, the eldest; Janetie, wife of Perter Van Orden, to have a trunk that belonged to her mother; Gertruy, wife of Wiert Banta, to have ten shillings; Andries, Laurens, Abraham, Pieter, Isaac, Michael and John to have the rest of his estate; Margaret, wife of John Church, and Fitie, wife of Andres Amack, to have the share of a son divided (between them). Executors---sons Laurens, Abraham and Michael Vanboskerk. Witness-- Jacobus Swart, Joost Schamp, Nicholas Wyckoff. --N.J. Wills, Liber 5, 539

328. Pierre Ruel Rolland Rulon,43 son of Pierre Rolland Rulon and Unknown.

General Notes: According to the manuscript compiled by John C. Rulon in 1870, "The Rulon Family and some of the Descendants", " one --- Rulon came to this country from France, during the persecution of the Huguenots, some time between the years 1684 and 1704. His brothers were Catholics and he a Protestant. They took the following means to assist him to escape from persecution. (Had it been known, they would no doubt have been01 persecuted.) To enable him to escape unnoticed, he was secretly headed up in a hogs bead, and taken to a vessel about to sail for the United States, put on board as merchandised, and after getting beyond the reach of the persecutors, was unheaded, (and not beheaded, as he would have been had he remained in France,) and reached this country, but at what port is not known, but from facts already obtained, I may safely say, New York,. My earliest dates is 1704, in Monmouth County, NJ, in close proximity too New York." This manuscript was written by John C. Rulon in 1870 at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is totally devoid of any documentations so there is no telling how accurate it may be. The document apparently was submitted to the National Library of the Daughters of the American Revolution by the Jacob Broom Chapter of the D. A. R. in Westmont, NJ. This chapter was organized on October 13, 1954. There is no indication of how the author is related to the family he describes. The manuscript lists descendants of David Rulon (1704 - 1774) in the first section and lists those of his supposed brother, Joel Rulon (1706 - 1783), in the second section . As the document on record with the D.A. R. is typewritten, it must be assumed that someone transcribed the original manuscript which was prepared in 1870. 26

General Notes: Source: The Putnam Lineage, Eben Putnam, 1907.

Sergt. Thomas Putnam had received a liberal education for his times. He took a most prominent part in the witchcraft trials. He was second to none but Parris in ferreting out the victims. He had an insane desire for notoriety. His wife also took a prominent part in those proceedings. She was also the sister of th wife of Mr. James Bayley, whose ministry was at large the cause of so much disension and which inadvertently added to the bitterness of the witchcraft persecutions.

By nature, Mrs. Putnam was a woman of a highly sensitive temperment, apparently easily wroght upon and deceived. The Carrs seem all to have had been rather weak in that respect, although of good social position.

Sergeant Putnam, on the contrary, was of a decisive and obstinate nature; he had great influence in the village and did not hesitate to use it; he had been in the Narragansett fight, belonged to the company of troopers and was parish clerk. Many of the records of the wichcraft proceedings are in his hand. He wrote a fine, clear and beautiful hand.

It was in the houses of Sergt. Thomas and of Rev. Mr. Parris that the "bewitched" children first met to accomplish their pranks. In the "circle" were the daughter Ann, and a maid-servant of Mrs. Ann Putnam, Mary Lewis by name.

Afterward, at the trials of the accused persons, Mrs. Putnam was often seized with strange attacks of imagination, evidently produced by the over-excitement and consequent strain on her brain. At these times she was a prominent witness, but after this was over and Parris was attempting to retain his hold on the parish and to dicker with the inhabitants over terms of settlement, she seemed to have refused to him her aid or encouragement.

That Sergeant Putnam and probably his wife were firm believers in the whole matter there seems to be but little doubt. He showed a lamentable lack of common sense, but so did many others. The strain was too much for him and he died shortly after the trials; his wife followed him to the grave a few weeks later.

Thomas married Ann Carr on 25 Nov 1678.

Source: A History of the Putnam Family in England and America, Eben Putnam 1891, contains the following:

Lieutenant Thomas, eldest son of John and Priscilla Putnam, baptized at Aston Abbots, Co. Bucks., England, 7 Mch., 1614-5; died at Salem Village, 5 May 1686; married, first at Lynn, Mass., 17th, 8 mo., 1643, Ann, daughter of Edward and Prudence (Stockton) Hollyoke. The Holyoke family were one of the most prominent and aristocratic families in the colony. Mrs. Ann (Holyoke) Putnam died 1 Sept., 1665.

Lt. Thomas married, second, at Salem, 14th, 9 mo., 1666, Mary Veren widow of Nathaniel Veren a rich merchant formerly of Salem. Mrs. Mary (Varen) Putnam died 16 (or 17th) Mch., 1694-5. In 1684, Mrs. Putnam in the apportionment of seats in the meeting house at the Village was seated in the first, or principal pew reserved for women.

Thomas Putnam, Sen., was an inhabitant of Lynn in 1640; freeman 1642; one of the seven men (selectmen) of Lynn in 1643; admitted to the church in Salem, 3 Apr., 1643.

The town of Salem granted to him, 20-10-1640, "fifty acres [of upland] and five acres of meddow." This was at the same time that his father received a grant of one hundred acres from the town ("in exchange of one-hundred acres formerly granted to him").

In 1645 the general Court passed the following order: "Mr. Thomas Layghton, Edward Burcham, & Thomas Puttman are appointed by this Courte to end smale causes for ye towne of Lynne for ye yeere ensewing" 18 June 1645. This commission was renewed the 20 May, 1648, "to end smale cawses, vnder twenty shillings."

11th, 9 mo., 1648, he was "Chosen for Gran-Juryman" in Salem, and 10-10-1655 was chosen constable of Salem in place of Mr. William Browne. The office of constable at that date carried great authority and covered the entier local administration of affairs.

He was also the first parish clerk at Salem Village and was prominent in the local military and ecclesiastical, as well as town affairs.

Thomas Putnam wrote a very fine hand and had evidently received a good education, as had his brothers. In 1679 he give to the Rev. James Bayley, upon his retirement from the ministry at Salem Village, three acres of meadow. during the long dispute over Bayley at the village, Thomas and John seem to have supported Bayley, while Nathaniel was in opposition.

Thomas Putnam during a number of years held, besides the offices above mentioned, the various positions of "Layer out of highways," "Inspector of bridges," "to care for rates for the ministers,
" etc. On the 29th day, 11 mo., 1658, "Jefferey Massey, Thomas Putname, Nathl Putname and Joseph Hutchensen are Impowered, or any three of them, to joyne the Topsfield about the Runninge & setlenge & full endinge of our sixe mile line in the extent of it so many places as they shall see meet, for a full conclusion of the worke." Oct. 8, 1662, the General Court confirms his appointment as Lieutentant in the troop of horse.

When on the 8th Oct., 1672, the General Court permitted the inhabitants of Salem Farms to become a separate parish, Lt. Thomas Putnam was made chairman of the committee chosen to carry on the affairs of the parish (11 Nov., 1672), and on 25 Nov., 1680, it was voted "that Lt. Thomas Putnam, and Jonathan Wolcott supply the place of deacons for year ensueing;" they were continued in office 27 Dec., 1681. The above is the first mention of deacons in the Village records.

In 1682 occurs the first list of tax-payers at the Village. There are ninety-four names on the list. Lt. Thomas Putnam was at the top of the list with £18, s6, d5. Nathaniel Putnam was number two with £9,s10, d0. Lt. John Putnam was number 4 with £8, s0, d0. Thomas Putnam, jr. was number 22 with £2, ds4, s0. John Putnam, jr. was number 23 with £2, s14, d0. Edward Putnam and Jonathan Putnam were also on the list if 94. (RCL summarized the list.)

It will be seen from the above that the three Putnam brothers and their sons-in-laws were by far the wealthiest of the "Village" or "Farms." Besides inheriting a double portion of his father's estate Thomas Putnam by his marriage with widow Mary Verene came into possession of considerable property in Jamaica and Barbadoes. The homestead of Thomas although much enlarged is still standing and is now known as the "Gen. Israel Putnam House." This house is situated a little east of Hathorne's Hill in the northern part of Danvers, not far from the Asylum, and was occupied by his widow in 1692. Here also his son Joseph lived during his opposition to the wichcraft proceedings.

There was also a town residence in Salem situated on the north side of Essex street extending back to North River, its front on Essex street embraced the western part of the grounds now occupied by the North Church and extended to a point beyond the head of Cambridge street.

In his will dated, 8 Feb., 1682, and proved at Boston, 8 July, 1686, he gives the eastern half of the above estate to his son Thomas, the western half to his son Joseph; another estate on the western side of St. Peter's street to the north of Federal, he gives to Edward. To each of his children he gives a large estate in Salem Village and a valuable piece of meadow land. To a faithful servant Joseph Stacey, he gives eleven acres.

The children by his first wife attempted, unsuccessfully, to break this will, claiming that undue influence was used to obtain for Joseph more than his share of the estate.

Mr. Upham in his Salem Witchcraft thus sums up the character and position of Thomas Putnam in contrast with his brothers "Possessing a large property by inheritance, he was not quite so active in increasing it, but enjoyed the society and friendship of the leading men lived a more retired life. At the same time he was always ready to serve the community when called for as he often was, when occasion arose for the aid of his superior intelligence and personal influence," also in writing the settlement of the "Farms" he says, "The Putnams followed up Beaver Brook to Beaver Dam, and spread out toward the north and west."

Eben Putnam's text goes on for ten pages giving the will of Thomas Putnam in full.

General Notes: The source of the descendants of Richard Dart is the LDS Ancestral File. The source of the narrative remarks is "John Boyer Ruppe & Ella Antonette Brabb - Their Ancestors & Descendants" compiled by Shirley Ann Ruppe Oldaker, December 1985.

That text says Richard Dart was born in 1635 and died September 24, 1724, at New London (or Waterford), Connecticut. He was 89 years old at the time of his death. His will was dated April 4, 1711 and was proved on November 9, 1724. His birthplace is unknown.

His wife's name was Bethiah, but her maiden name has not been determined. They were probably married about 1663-64. Bethiah's birth data or place of birth is not known, but she died about 1705. After the death of Bethiah, Richard married Mary (Roe or Stow) Dudley, the widow of William Dudley of Saybrook, Connecticut. William was a brother to Joseph Dudley an ancestor in the Dudley line.

Richard Dart was a member of a group that came to New London in 1663, this was about the time of is marriage. He lived there for sometime, but did not become a citizen of the town. Finally the town council ordered Dart and some of the other parties to either take out citizenship in the town or to leave. Apparently, he chose to become a citizen because on September 12, 1664, he purchased a house and lot in New London from William Welman.

Richard was one of the patentees of the town of New London. He was one of the grantees of Waterford, New London County, Connecticut, who received additional lands from the King of England. He apparently had influence in the community as his name appears frequently in the town records. The house he built in Waterford, of early architecture, was still standing in 1900. 19 20

General Notes: The source for the Dudley line from William to Sarepta, wife of Alpheus Putnam, is the text "John Boyer Ruppe & Ella Antonette Brabb - Their Ancestors & Descendants" compiled by Shirley Ann Ruppe Oadaker, December 1985.

This text includes the following Dudley Family history: of the settlers.

The first group that settled the area along the Connecticut coastline, later to be known as Guilford, came about 1637. The community of Guilford was established between 1638-39. Many of the early settlers had come from England.

William Dudley and his wife, Jane, sailed from Okley, England in 1639. Their son, William, was born June 8, 1638 on the voyage. The Dudley's settled in Guilford, Connecticut.

Tradition states that forty planters settled Guilford. However, due to the lack of records, the list of names cannot be made out completely.

The earliest list of settlers, after that time of the Plantation Covenant, is dated 1650 and contains forty-eight names. This list probably was arranged in order of precedence in the settlement. It furnishes the only means of knowing the relative standing of the settlers. The names of the covenant signers were marked with a star. Their high social standing, in comparison with the later settlers, is noticeable.

The first list of names were planters and freemen. William Dudley, the first known family ancestor on the Dudley line, appears on this list. There is a star by his name and the date of June 30, 1650. The second list of names were planters, but not freemen.

A "planter" is the owner of a plantation. A "freeman" is a citizen, or one who has political and civil liberty.

Another individual who was related to the Dudley's Benjamin Wright, is listed but without a star.

The Dudley family lived in Guilford and surrounding communities for many generations.

Source: World Family Tree CD v. 10 ed. 1, Tree # 81 cites the following story as coming from Genealogical and Personal History of the Upper Monongahela Valley, West Virginia - under the editorial supervision of Bernard. L. Butcher - vol. 1 - pages 534-538 - published in 1978. Dudley: A history fo the Dudley family written by Judge H.C. McDougal on the "Early Dudleys of Dunkard Mill Run," contains the following Genealogy of this illustrious family: "History shows that the Dudley family originated at the town of Dud, in England, in the seventeenth century, and that since that early day through the veins of the Dudleys there coursed the purest and tenderest blood of nobility of their native land. The early history of the family is filled with song and story; they led in thought and action both in old England and in early colonial days in New England as well, and from remote times may be traced in the historic books of the day the prominent Guilford Dudley." Just what year or how they migrated from Dud, England, is not known, but the direct descent of the particular family located on Dunkard Mill Run (now in Marion County, West Virginia (1700's)) is as follows: (I) William Dudley was born at Richmond, formerly Sheen, in Surrey, England, and from the town of Guilford, some thirty miles south of London, in county of Surrey, came to Guilford, Conneticut. He married Jane Lutman, by Rev, Henry Whitfield, rector at Oakley, in Surrey, England, August 24, 1636 as shown by the parish register of Oakley. In the good ship "Hector", William and wife Jane, in company with said Rev, Whitfield, and as part of the Eaton Hopkins expedition to the colony of Conneticut, sailed from London, England May 20, 1639 and thereafter settled in Guilford, Conneticut, so named after Guilford, England. William Dudley was a member of Whitfield's church in England and readily joined with him in the emmigration. When William Dudley and wife arrived at Guildford, Conneticut, they established their home on what is now Fair Street. William Dudley was a prominenet man in his day, was representative to the General Court at Guilford, and held other public offices. He died there March 16, 1683 and his wife Jane died there May 1, 1674. (II) William (2) Son of William (1) and Jane Dudley the immigrants is known in history as "Deacon William Dudley". (He is the brother of Ruth Dudley)

In 1686, Peter married his third wife Esther, maiden name unknown.

The records show Peter Tallman had fourteen children. Three or four children were by his first wife, Ann. The fourth child, Ann, does not have a birth date recorded, she could have been from the first marriage and named for the mother Ann.

Was adm. chh. 4 Feb 1647

Source: John's genealogy is documented in A History of the Putnam Family in England and America Vol. II, by Eben Putnam, 1908.

John Putnam, the founder of the Salem family, was the son of Nicholas and Margaret (Goodspeed) Putnam, and was baptized 17 January 1579/80 at Wingrave, Buckinghamshire, in which parish he was undoubtedly born. His father, Nicholas, had inherited from his younger brother Richard, an estate in lands in Wingrave bequeathed him by their father John Putnam. No record of the transfer of this property by Nicholas has been found, yet at the latter's death in 1597, he then being of Stewkley, there is no mention of the Wingrave property. Nicholas, however, gave to his son John his houses and lands in Aston Abbotts, of which we have found no record as to how he became possessed.

The Putnam farm was probably in Burstone, a locality adjoining Rowsham in Wingrave. John probably lived in Stewkley with his parents until his father's death, and then being of age capable to conduct a farm, seems to have taken possession of the property given him by his father and to have continued in possession, occupying himself with its care, until his migration to New England. In 1614, when his name appears on his mother's marriage license as one of the sureties, he is described as husbandman. No further mention is found of him in England, except upon the occasions of the baptism of his children, who were baptized at Aston Abbotts. Who his wife was can only be conjectured, but there is good reason to beleive she was Priscilla Deacon, of the family of that name of Corner Hall, in Hemel Hempstead. The arms of Deacon of Hemel Hempstead were, A chevron treillisse between three roses. Crest: a demi eagle. This family has been of considerable note in Hertfordshire, deriving descent from Richard Deacon of Wyndruge, Herts., who died 1496, and whose three sons were in the service of the Crown, the elder as Secretary to Elizabeth of York, consort to Henry VII, and the other two in military service. There uncle married in 1611 or 1612. The marriage records for this period are missing from the Wingrave register, and the register for Hemel Hempstead is lost.

In 1658 (25 Nov.), Zaccheus Gould of Topsfield deputed "John Putnam of Salem, the younger, his cousin" to be his attorney. In an account book of John Gould, grandson of Zaccheus, born 1662, died 1724, is found and entry by him as follows, "Grandfather Gould lived in Buckinghamshire, and Granfather Deacon in Hertfordshire, in Hempstead town in Corner Hall." In this same book are references to John Putnam, a contemporary, alluded to as "cousin." Jeremy Gould, a brother of Zahceus, had wife (Pricilla Grover and was linving in Aston Abbots in 1631, but was in Rhode Island in 1638. Another brother of Zacheus Gould was John, who lived in Bovington, and had a daughter Priscilla (who married a Grover and had in turn a daughter married after her,) and also a niece-Priscilla Ware. Neigher of these were of suitable age to have been married with John Putnam. Both John Putnam and Zacheus Gould named daughters "Phoebe". Cousin was the term in use in the early part of the 17th century to indicate nephew, and as there appears no opportunity for a Putnam-Gould marriage either way, the only alternative is to adopt the suggestion that John Putnam and Zacheus Gould had married sisters.

According to Prof. Gould, Phebe, wife of Zaccheus Gould, was a daughter of Thomas and Martha Deacon of corner Hall. Thomas Deacon is said to have been born about 1585. Thomas Deacon of Corner Hall was the father of Thomas, born in 1609, who was B. A. Oxford, 1627, and grandfather of Lt. Col. Thomas Deacon, the Parliamentary soldier. It is probable that the Thomas Deacon of Corner hall, called grandfather by John Gould, was born some years prior to 1585. Bovington the home of the Goulds and of the Deacons is part of Hempstead, and is but eight miles from Tring. It is an interesting coincidence that Richard Deacon, the Queen's secretary, purchased the two chief manors in Stewkley, Baras and Littlecote, in 1503, which in 1521 he gave by will to his son Richard who was of Marston Morteyn, Beds., and died 1543.

There is an entry in Lechford's Note Book under date of 12-27-1639 (22 Feb., 1640, our reconing), "For drawing Articles for Mr. Cradocke & Gould and Putnam (6s.)" Just what these articles related to is not revealed, but the reference is either to John Putnam or his eldest son Thomas. It was in 1640 that John Putnam settled in Salem. There is no record of his having been in any other part of New England prior to his appearance in Salem. His son Thomas first settled in Lynn, and his coming is thought to have preceded his father's. In 1685/6, Nathaniel Putnam deposed that he was aged sixty-five years and his residence in Salem as about forty-five years, both of which statements agree with the date 1640 as that of the coming of their father. As it is not likely that the removal was effected in the winter season, either John arrived in the preceding year or else his son Thomas is the person referred to by Lechford. There is no authority for the date 1634, sometimes given as that of the arrival of John Putnam, other than family tradition, probably originating with Deacon Edward Putnam who left a grief genealogy of the family compiled in 1733.
In this same record is found the following account of the death of John Putnam, "He ate his supper, went to prayer with his family and died before he went to sleep."

Grants of land, which made by the town of Salem to John Putnam and to his sons on their own account. The first grant is not of record, and the land so granted was not occupied by him. The earliest recorded grant, which was that on which he established his homestead, was 100 acres, on the 20-11 mo., 1640, or January, 1641 new style.

In deeds John Putnam is described as both husbandman and yeoman. He was a man of substance and probably of as much education as his contemporaries, but neither seeking or desiring public office. In 1653 he divided his lands between his sons Thomas and Nathaniek, having evidently already granted his homestead to his younger son John.

From the Salem Church Records we find that Priscilla wife of John Putnam was admitted as a member of that church 21-1 mo., 1641, that he was admitted 4-2 mo., 1647, and his daughter Eliza in 1643.

There is no record of the death of his wife, nor settlement of either her or his estate. John Putnam died 30-10 mo., 1662.

At a general town meeting held the 7th day of the 5th month 1644 it was ordered "that twoe be appointed every Lords day to walke forth in the time of Gods worshippe, to take notice of such as either lye about the meeting house without attending to the word or ordinances, or that lye at home or in the fields, without giving good account thereof, and to take the names of such persons & to present them to the Magistrate, whereby they may be accordingly proceded against.

John Putnam and John Hathorne were appointed for the ninth day. The others were Stileman, Verir, Batter, Downing, Molton, Ingersoll, Pettingall, Porter, Barney, Johnson, Clark, Haynes, Hutchinson, Bishop and Ray, all men of prominence and to whom a perusal of the records shows that the town looked with respect.

John married Priscilla Deacon Gould about 1611.

Edward Holyoke (John, Thomas, ___) was baptized at Alcester, co. Warwick, 15 February 1585/6 and died at Rumney Marsh [Chelsea], Massachusetts, 4 May 1660. He married, first at Kimcote and Walton, co. Leicester, 17 June 1612, Prudence Stockton (PRs, on FHL microfilm 585,276), who was baptized at Alcester, co. Warwick, 20 December 1584, and died before 1648, presumably at Lynn, Massachusetts, the daughter of Rev. John and Susanna (___) Stockton. He married, second, by 1648, Anne (Taylor) Tuttle, born about 1594, the widow of Richard Tuttle of Boston, Massachusetts.

Edward Holyoke was mentioned in the 1587 will of his father, John Holyoke the elder [No. 3] of Alcester. While still a minor, he was named chief heir in the 1591 will of his great-uncle, Edward Holyoke, of Tanworth and Wootton Wawen [No. 1.-i. above], who bequeathed to him various Warwickshire properties in Tanworth, Wootton Wawen, Ullenhall, and Henley in Arden. He was mentioned also in the 1611 will of Margaret Holyoke, widow of his great-uncle Edward.

Following their marriage, Edward and Prudence lived in the parish of st. Lawrence Jewry, London, where he was a grocer, and afterwards at Tanworth, co. Warwick. In 1626 Edward signed as a witness to the will of his half-brother, Robert Wilcox the younger, of Alcester, and he was a legatee and overseer of the 1627 will of his stepfather, Robert Wilcox [Sr.]. In 1630, Prudence was named in the will of her father, Rev. John Stockton of Kimcote and Walton, co. Leicester, and Edward signed as a witness.

They left for America about 1637, settling first at Lynn, and afterwards at Rumney Marsh [now Chelsea]. Edward served as the New England agent for Lord Brooke. He was appointed Associate Judge of the Salem Court in 1639, and reappointed in 1640, 1641, and 1642. He served as Deputy to the general Court for Lynn in 1639-43, 1647-48, and as Deputy for Springfield in 1650.

General Notes: See notes for son Matthew for birth date and marriage date. However, there is an entry in the 1988 IGI for Bocking, Essex, England that Matthew Whipple was born 1554 and was the son of Whipple/Joanna.

RCL has an unsupported handwritten note that indicates Matthew Whipple, the elder was buried Jan 16, 1618/19.

The 1988 IGI for Bocking, Essex, England contains several entries that could be applicable to this Matthew Whipple:

1581, Matthew, born, son of Matthew Whipple/Joanna.

Blaine Whipple (blainewhipple@gbronline.com ), at http://www.whipple.org/blaine/overview.html#_Top says: The Ipswich Whipples Are from Bocking. The Matthew and John Whipple who settled in Ipswich, MA, were undoubtedly natives of Bocking. The author visited St. Mary's church in Bocking and found them in its parish records. He acquired a copy of Matthew Whipple’s will, proved in 1619, at a record office in London. It states that the family lived on Bradford Street in Bocking and identifies Matthew, Jr. and John as his sons.

Holman and Marvin3 and Banks10 also place Matthew and John in Bocking. That brothers Matthew and John did not leave England until 1638 is further confirmed by the parish records that show that Matthew's sons, John (later known as Lieut. John) and Matthew, were born in Bocking in September 1632 and ca. 1635; and that four of John's children were baptized there between October 1631 and February 1637/8 (William 2 October 1631; Ann 2 June 1633; Judith 4 August 1635; Matthew 7 February 1637/38).

It is very interesting that at the whipple.org site, Clara Barton is identified as a granddaughter (5 great) of Elder John Whipple, who was born in Bocking, Essex Co., England, and was settled in Ipswich, MA, by 1638.

The interesting aspect is that my wife, Darlene Osborne's great grandmother was Emily Barton who claimed to be a cousin of Clara Barton. After years of research this connection has never been proved. In fact, recent DNA studies have all but disproved it. Clara Barton's ancestry was through the Massachusetts Marmaduke Barton line and Emily Barton's ancestry was through the Rhode Island Rufus Barton line. DNA studies show no reasonable relationship between Marmaduke and Rufus Barton.

Since Darlene and Clara (Clarissa) share the Matthew Whipple as their ancestors, they would be seventh cousins, several times removed!

Hello,

I've copied your names from the World Connect Project at Rootsweb. What
you have in common is that the GEDCOMs you contributed to the Project all
have William DOUGLAS, b. 1610, as an ancestor. Some of you also list his
father, Robert DOUGLAS, and his wife, Ann MATTLE (or Anne MATTLE, or Ann/e
MOTLEY). By one path or another, your families are descendants of William
DOUGLAS or Ann MATTLE. However, if I was careful enough to notice, none of
you appears to be searching the DOUGLAS(S) surname down to the present
time. If I am wrong, please let me know!

I also have William as an ancestor. I can trace the male line down to
me. I also have in my data base William's male children and a lot of their
descendants. I would be happy to share what I've got with you.

We also have in common that none of us has been able to go back further in
time to the ancestors of William and his father, Robert. I would like
to. I am contacting you in the hope that since posting your GEDCOMs, you
have found out more about William and Robert and who their siblings and
parents were, and when and where they were born. If you have ANY
information about them, please let me know what you know and where you got
the information.

Some of you believe William was born in Ringstead, Northamptonshire,
England. Others believe he was born in Scotland, and particular, in Castle
Douglas. There are also some inconsistencies relating to birth and
marriage dates. I would imagine that all of us would like to resolve these
contradictions. Can anyone offer some solid evidence of where William was
born? How about his father, Robert?

If you cited a source for your information, it came from one of the
following sources (besides relying on each other).

1. "A Collection of Family Records with Biographical Sketches Bearing Name
Douglas" by Charles Henry James Douglas. Providence, RI, E. L. Freeman
Co., Publishers, 1879. This book has a library call number of
CS71.D734. Photocopy reproductions are for sale but I can't lay my hands
on the name of the firm right now. The last price I saw was $71 U.S.

You may be interested to know that C.H.J. Douglas' tome is available on
Family TreeMaker CD #156, "Mid-Atlantic Genealogies, 1340-1940" Rather
than images of the pages, the pages have been scanned using Optical
Character Recognition so the text can be edited and copied. The last
price I saw was $29.99.

C.H.J. Douglas was not able to go back beyond William when he published his
work in 1879.

2. The LDS Ancestral File: AFN: H10R-HB. I haven't seen the file, but
there must be information about Robert and William.
Good luck to you all.

Twelfth Generation (9th Great-Grandparents)



3072. John Brabes was born about 1580 in , Yorkshire, England.

General Notes: Source: IGI Yorkshire, England, 1988.

The first seven generations of this genealogy are derived from the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints' International Genealogical Index (IGI).

The information in the IGI originates from microfilm copies of various church and civil records. At the level available to me at the time of the compilation, only names (child, parents, and spouses), dates ( birth, christening, and marriage) and locations are stated. Therefore, the genealogy is based purely on the coincidence of names, dates, and locations.
I have no actual proof of the genealogy. However, this technique allowed interconnection of a great majority of the 1988 Yorkshire, England IGI pertaining to the Brabb name and its various spellings. Most were very logical connections - hardly any pure guesses were required.

If one would draw a box twenty miles square and place the upper left-hand corner of it at the town of York in Yorkshire, England, the lower right-hand corner would be about at the town of North Cave. Just about in the center would be the town of Bubwith.

There are approximately 850 Brabbs in the International Genealogical Index for England, the first appearing in Bubwith in 1632. It is 1701 before the IGI lists a Brabb outside of the shire of York. Throughout the IGI, well over 90% of the Brabbs are listed in Yorkshire. In about 1760 some Brabbs appear in Riccall, which is about 7 miles west of Bubwith. The families remained concentrated in Bubwith and Riccall until about 1818 when Isaac and 1820 George are recorded in North Cave. The IGI contains entries for nearly all of their children. We are all familiar with the fact that many of these two families came to America between 1830 and 1833. Many other Brabb entries are in the IGI with the last appearing in 1870. I'm sure one would still find many Brabbs still living in and around Yorkshire.

The genealogy from George Brabb(s), the immigrant, to Dorothy Alberta Brabb, my wife's grandmother, was provided to me in the form of family group sheets prepared by an unknown family member.

Wilma Jean Cunard Flach provided the connection between George and Isaac Brabb which allowed the completion of the genealogy.

John Stocton received his B. A. from Oxford University 8 March 1573/74. He became rector of Alcester, Warwickshire, 20 June 1578, and on 16 September 1580 he was appointed also rector of Beaudesert in the same county. Puritans strongly objected to this practice of pluralism, as the parish in which a pluralist did not reside almost always was left without a preacher. Stockton himself resided in the parish of Alcester and appointed a curate to serve the other parish, eliciting criticism from the Puritans, who claimed that he "hath a dumbe hireling, one Roger Smith, a common alehouse haunter" at Beaudesert.
In 1595 he was appointed rector of Kimcote and Walton, Leicester, and moved there shortly after 1606, remaining in that locality until his death.

6664. Thomas Holyoke, son of Holliocke and Unknown, was born about 1520 and was buried from 13 Jan 1568 to 1569 in Alcester, Warwick, England.

General Notes: Source: NEHGR Volume CXLVII, January 1993, Ancestry of Edward Holyoke.

Thomas Holyoke/Holliocke was born say 1520 and was buried at Alcester, co. Warwick, 13 January 1568/9. He married, probably by 1550, Anne (Fletcher alias Hawthorne) Dawler, who was buried at Alcester 4 February 1587/8, daughter of Phillip and Ann (___) Fletcher alias Hawthorne of Kinnerton, co. Warwick, and widow of William Dawler of Alcester who died in 1546. Anne's identity is deduced from a variety of documents, discussed below in "The Hawthorne Ancestry," pages 22-23. She married, third, by 26 November 1587 (and probably much earlier), William Abell, a smith, of Alcester, who was buried there 27 January 1597/8, after having married, second, at Alcester, 23 January 1588/9, by bond dated 20 January 1588/9 (CCWorc., 161h/1588, on FHL microfilm 097,938), Joyce Daye, who was buried there 11 November 1589. The surety of the marriage bond for William Abell and Joyce Daye was Edward Hawthorne of Alcester (nephew of William Abell's previous wife).

In his will, dated 28 September 1545, proved 13 October 1546 (Wills and Adm., Dean and chapter of Worcester [herinafter DC Worc.], 5, 1545-1553, No. 337, p. 132, on FHL microfilm 097,877), Wyllm Dowlar bequeathed his soul "unto Almyghty god to our lady saynt Mary and to all the holy company of hevin," and asked to be buried in the churchyard of St. Nicholas in Alcester. He left viii d for forgotten tithes and viii d to "the mother churche of Worcester," and "unto my ij sones that I had by my first wyffe every one of them a cowe"; all the rest of his goods he gave to his wife Anne, making her executrix, with "recorde berars Wyllm Walker, parson, Phillip Hawtharne, Roger Hawtharne, Robert Furste and other more."

Addition circumstantial evidence supports the marriage of Thomas Holyoke and Anne Hawtheorne. By the terms of her father's will, Anne (Hawthorne) Dawler was to receive for her lifetime an annual rent of no less than ten shillings from a family property in Exhall, co. Warwick. This would have been received during Anne's lifetime by her husband. Significantly, in the inventory of Thomas Holyoke's estate, taken in 1569, it is stated that "Mr. Walsingham of Exsell" owed Thomas Holyoke 10s 4d.

In his will dated 27 December 1568 and proved 10 June 1569 (CC Worc., 26/1569), Thomas Holyoke sycke in bodye" made bequests: "...to John my sonne xis ... to Jhon my yonger sonne xls ... to Thomas my sonne xls ... to Jane my dawghter xls and the fether bedde that y bowght of Richard Leye thes to be delivered to them when they be of xx yers of Age ...
to Jhon and Alys my brothers children vjs viijd a pece ... to Jane my servant xxd ... to An waryng xijd ... to Margerye Gregsan vijd ... to Rychard Barbar my my prentes [apprentice] a greate and a small panege. ... to Edward Hawtheren my best purse. ... to Ankar Hawtheren iijs iijd ... to Anne my wyfe the Reversyon of my leyse. All the rest of my goods unbequethed y gyve and bequethe to An my wyffe who y ordeyne and make my full executrix to paye my detts and to bring me honestely whom [home]. ... my supervisors to se this my last Wyll and testament to be justelye and trulye performed Jhon my eldest sonne and Edward Hawtherne.

Witnesses include Wllm Walkar parson, Thomas Fulford, Wllm Loughton, Wllm Joanes, and Edward Hawtherne. The inventory of Thomas Holyoke's estate was taken 13 January 1568/9, by Thomas Gower the young, Wyllm Langton, and Edward Philips [probably the same person called elsewhere Edward Hawthorne; the Hawthorne family of Alcester occasionally used the alias Philips]. the value of the estate was £19 6s 8d, including various debts owed to or by the testator.

In 1587, William Abell, who had become the third husband of Thomas Holyoke's widow, witnessed the will of his stepson, John Holyoke "the elder." In the same year, he was named overseer of the will of another stepson, John Holyoke "the younger."

Thomas married Anne Alias Hawthorne Dawler Fletcher before 1550.

Children from this marriage were:

General Notes: Source: NEHGS Register, Volume CXLVII, January, 1993, The English Ancestry of Edward Holyoke and of his Nephew, Thomas Morris of New Haven.

There may be a clue to her identity in the will of her husband, who mentions his "cousin" richard Smalbroke, gentleman, of Yardley. Although the relationship between the Stokes and Smalbroke families has not been determined, none of the other Stokes wills for this period mentions any kinship to the Smalbrokes, and Richard Smalbroke was possibly Mary's own relative.

6786. John Whitbread,19 son of Thomas Whitbread and Unknown, was born about 1548.

General Notes: The Ruppe/Brabb text says John Whitbead was living in Upper Gravenhurst in 1571. He was most likely the John Whitbead who was buried at Upper Gravenhurst November 28, 1598. Neither a will nor probate record has been found for him.

John's wife's name was Eleanor, her maiden name has not been proved. Her birth date is not known. She died November 20, 1628 and is buried at Upper Gravenhurst.

Eleanor's will was probated April 18, 1629, in Elstow. John and Eleanor's youngest son John was residing in Elstow, so she must have gone there to live after the death of her husband.

In her will, Eleanor leaves property and a measure of silver to her children and a silver spoon to each of her grandchildren. She wanted the silver to be a "standerd forever" to her heirs. This request suggests, that she was a woman of great family pride, although not possessing a lot of wealth. There is some evidence indicating that Eleanor was related, in some way, to a prominent and wealthy Radcliffe family, however, she does not appear on any of their pedigree charts.

Because the parish register, at that period, did not list the names of the parents, when the children were christened, it is not certain how many of the Whitbread children listed, belonged to John and Eleanor. Four children have been proved to belong; William, Henry, Alice and John. William, Henry, and John are named as sons in Eleanor's will and Alice's sons are named as grandsons in the will. Five other Whitbread children, on the parish records, may also belong to this family.

RCL note: In addition to the four children listed in the database, the following may be children of John and Eleanor:

Elizabeth, baptized September 28, 1581
Francis, baptized April 30, 1581
Judith, baptized June 6, 1591; m. Richard Poulter
Thomas, buried June 6, 1585, child
Elen, buried June 11, 1585, child. 19
