LORD, Nathan (1657-1733) & Martha TOZIER; 22 Nov 1678; Kittery, ME {Kit tery 319, 438, 531, 588, 780; Wentworth 1:143; Lord 11; Hodson 27; GDMN H 443, 640; Reg. 16:134, 18:50; Coltman Anc. 133, 187} 
Family F11151
 
10003 They had twelve children. Family F11184
 
10004 They had two sons and one daughter. Family F11186
 
10005 They left Mass. and migrated to the Rutland County, Vt. (Tinmouth, Vt.) area prior to 1800. According to Betty Harvey.
DNA test results link this line to Thomas Harvey b. 1617.
Research Note:
There is a known Y-DNA connection from a descendant of Marshall Harvey to Thomas Harvey b. 1716.
There are both an Edmund Harvey and a Marshall Harvey in the 1790 Woodstock, Vt. census.
Edmund Harvey married his second cousin, Mary Harvey, (daughter of David Harvey & Content Byram)so that narrows his possible ancestors quite a bit.
Edmund's grandfather is likely Joseph Harvey, son of Nathaniel b. 1673 and Susannah. If so, assuming Edmund and Marshall are brothers, then likewise for Marshall Harvey.

Source: David Williams and the capture of Andre:
a paper read before the Tarrytown Historical Society , Marcius Denison Raymond,
Tarrytown Argus, 1903

For and in consideration of the services David Williams hath rendered his country in apprehending and securing the British Deputy Adjutant General, Major Andre, who was returning to New York after having in the character of a Spy concerted measures with the infamous Benedict Arnold, then commanding the posts in the Highlands, for betraying the said posts into the hands of the enemy; and for his virtue in refusing a large sum of money offered by the said Major Andre as a bribe to permit him to escape; and for and in consideration of a further sum named, the said Commissioners granted and sold unto him, a certain tract of land late in the possession of Edmund Ward in the town of Eastchester, being altogether 252 J acres, for which the total price was £1,360, 12s., 6p., less the £500 awarded him by the Government. The date of this conveyance was June 16, 1783, but he re-conveyed a portion of the same to Stephen Ward the same year and he may never have lived there, or only for a short time. His purchase of a part of the farm of his father-inlaw, Joseph Benedict, of Lower Salem, 140 acres, for which he paid £640, occurred June 23, 1789; at least he did not take title till that date. In this connection it should be stated, on the authority of Simm's Frontiersmen of New York, to which we are indebted for other data, that David Williams' father, Aert Williams, removed early in the war from near Tarrytown to Cross River, Lower Salem, and lived on lands belonging to Joseph Benedict, whose daughter, his son David, afterwards married. And there he, Aert Williams, continued to reside until his decease.

One was of Boston, and had by wife Joan children Abigail b. 1640, Thomas b. 1641, Experience b. 1644, and Joseph b. 1645.A person of this name, probably the same, by wife Martha, had children William b. 1651, Thomas b. 1652, and John b. 1653.He died Aug. 15, 1658, and his widow married Henry Tewksbery, Nov. 10, 1659.The other William Harvey was of Plymouth maried Joanna, 1639, removed to Taunton; was rep. 1664 and 13 years after.Query: May not the Plymouth man be the same as the Boston man and the Taunton man be a different person?---EDITOR.]

10049 Umholtz, Juanita

Family-Placed Obituary

Juanita Umholtz was born in Frankston, Texas, on February 20, 1925, to Edgar Campbell and Mila Myrtle (Caldwell) Campbell and passed away on July 20, 2004, in Austin, Texas. She grew up helping with the family truck farm and at the family's feed store, post office and cafe in Frankston. Juanita graduated at the age of 16 from Poyner - La Rue high school and move to Tyler to obtain her secretarial degree from business school. In 1943, she married her beloved husband, Charles (Chuck ) Umholtz in Big Springs, Tx, where Chuck was stationed with the Army Air Corps. After WW II, they moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas. They lived in Deep Eddy married student housing while completing their degrees. Juanita received her Bachelor of Science in mathematics and physics in 1949. While Chuck completed his Ph.D., they began their family and enjoyed Austin in the early 1950's. In 1954, they moved to Baytown, Tx, and Juanita stayed home to raise their three daughters. She was a devoted wife and mother who always found ways to show her love and support. Whether it was sewing all her children's clothes, being a Girl Scout Leader or just listening, Juanita found countless ways to give to her family. She was very involved with her extended family as well and did not miss a Caldwell reunion for 25 years. Juanita gave to her community through her work with the United Way, the Opportunity Center, Sterling Public Library, Center for Battered Woman, San Jacinto Hospital volunteer, and sponsoring foreign exchange students through AFS. Juanita also enjoyed activities with her garden club and the Texas Exes. In 1968, Sterling High School needed a teacher for analytical geometry and gave her an emergency teaching certificate. She truly enjoyed teaching and was a volunteer tutor for any student who asked for help in math. Juanita made many friends during the 45 years she lived in Baytown. Her Brownwood coffee club formed during the late fifties and remained close friends even after losing their homes in Hurricane Carla in 1961. Throughout the years they continued to gather for birthday lunches and share family news. After the storm, Juanita and her family moved to Country Club Oaks and felt fortunate to find such wonderful neighbors around her. In later years, she became an elder at First Presbyterian Church of Baytown and treasured her close friendships within the congregation. Juanita was preceded in death by her son, Thomas Charles Umholtz; husband, Dr. Charles Umholtz; sisters, Martha Dickerson and Wanda Nell Childs. She is survived by daughters, Robbie Blaha and husband, Michael of Austin, TX, Rebecca Hewett and husband, Steve of Sandwich, Ma, and Debbie Stark of Austin, Tx; grandchildren: Chelsea and Alex Stark, Isaac Blaha, Katy Hewett; step-grandson, Emil Blaha; sister, Blanche Munson of Waco; brother-in-law, Bob Umholtz of Glendale, Arizona; nieces, Barbara Brown, Susie Leavey; nephews, Cecil Perry, Richard Reynolds, Joe Reynolds. The family wishes to express their deep appreciation for the wonderful care given to their mother by the staff of Westminister Healthcare Center of Austin. A memorial service will be held at on Friday, July 23 at 2:00 p.m. at The First Presbyterian Church, 715 Market St., Baytown, TX, 77521. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that those who wish to honor Juanita may do so with a contribution to The Glaucoma Research Foundation, 490 Post St., Suite 1427, San Francisco, 94102.

History of New Bedford (Volume 4)
.
ELIPHALET WILLIAMS HERVEY, JR.

As business man, scientist, author and citizen, Mr. Hervey, during the active years of his life, was a prominent figure in New Bedford, and now walking amid the lengthened shadows is living in honored retirement in the citv of New Bedford.

Berkeley, Bristol county, Massachusetts, has been the home of his people for more than two and one-half centuries, dating from 1653, when William Harvey was proposed as a candidate for the rights of a freeman of Plymouth Company, and from 1643, when Thomas Harvey's name appeared on a list of those "able to bear arms." The surname is written both Harvey and Hervey, the ancestor of the New Bedford family represented in the twentieth century by Eliphalet W. Hervey being William Harvey, a distinguished citizen of Cohasset, which then included Taunton, Berkeley and Raynham. Both William Harvey and his brother held positions in Plymouth county and owned much land. William Harvey was a deputy to the General Court for fourteen years, selectman for twenty years, and held about every important office in the town. A mortgage made by Philip the Sachem to Constant Southworth was made over to William Harvey and John Richmond in 1672, and described land
"Four miles square down Taunton River and next unto Taunton bounds." William Harvey married, April 2, 1639, Joan Hucker, of Cohasset, and among their children was a daughter, Experience, born in 1644, who married Thomas Harvey, of Taunton, and they were the parents of William Harvey, of Berkeley, Massachusetts, who died January 7, 1745.

James Hervey, as he spelled the name, son of William and Hopestill Harvey, was born June 13, 1701, and lived in the town of Berkeley, where a tombstone in the family plot in the cemetery near Berkeley Common asserts that he died December 28, 1795, in his ninety-fifth year. James (2) Hervey, a son of James (i) and Rebecca Hervey, married Rachel Phillips, and had James (3) Hervey, who was a substantial farmer and ship builder at the Weir on Taunton river, building sailing vessels which were loaded with lumber, and both vessels and cargoes disposed of at Bristol and other ports. He married Lucinda Paull, also
born in Berkeley, and they were the parents of Dr. Eliphalet Williams Hervey. a graduate from the medical department of Brown University in 1826, and a successful practitioner in Wareham and neighboring towns. In 1827 he was a commissioned surgeon of the Fifth Regiment, First Brigade, Fifth Division, Massachusetts Militia, his commission signed by Governor Levi Lincoln. He married Dorcas Fearing, of Wareham, and among their children was a son, Eliphalet Williams (2) Hervey, who made New Bedford his home, and for half a century was closely identified with the Mechanics' Bank.

Eliphalet Williams (2) Hervey was born in the town of Berkeley, Bristol county, Massachusetts, July 27, 1834, and now resides in New Bedford, at No. 191 Hawthorne street. His father died in 1834, and Ebenezer Hervey, uncle of the boy, and a teacher in New Bedford public schools, took him to his heart and home. He passed all grades of the New Bedford public schools, finishing with high school graduation in 1849. He began business life as a bank clerk, serving the Marine Bank two years before going to the Mechanics' Bank as teller. In 1857 he was elected cashier of the Mechanics' Bank, and for a quarter of a century held that responsible post. In 1882 he resigned, but was elected a director, a position he still holds. While Mr. Hervey, as the record shows, was an able business man, holding responsible positions, he is a botanist of note and wrote a large amount of interesting matter concerning local flora. He published in i860 a catalogue of the "Plants found in New Bedford and Vicinity," arranging the flowers according to the season of their flowering. In 1890 a revised and enlarged catalogue was
published under the title "Flora of New Bedford and Shores of Buzzards Bay, with a Procession of the Flowers." For many years he was a member of the New England Botanical Club and of the "L'Academie Internationale de Geographie Botanique" of France. He contributed otherwise to the literature of botany, and is a recognized authority in his special study.

Other interests served and public service rendered by Mr. Hervey were six years' membership on the school committee, 1859-1865 ; two years as representative in the State Legislature, 1885-87 ; secretary of the old Young Men's Christian Association for many years ; member of the present Young Men's Christian Association (sustaining member) ; director of the American Tack Company ; trustee of St. Luke's Hospital (original member) ; trustee of the Five Cents Savings Bank from 1885. He is a life member of the Old Colony Historical Society, the Dartmouth Historical Society, and a member of the North Congregational Church, and for many years secretary of the New Bedford Bible Society.

Mr. Hervey married, in 1862, Emmeline K. Homer, daughter of Daniel Homer, of New Bedford. They were the parents of three children: Homer Winthrop, of further mention; Hetta M., married Pierre E. Richards ; Emma F., married Gilbert T. Thompson.

Homer Winthrop Hervey was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts, February 10, 1866. He completed preparatory study at Friends' Academy, then entered Harvard University, whence he was graduated Bachelor of Arts, class of "88." He completed legal study at Harvard Law School, receiving his degree of Bachelor of Laws with the class of "91." He at once began practice at the Bristol county bar, locating in New Bedford, where he has been in the continuous practice of his profession
until the present (1917). He is a member of the County and State Bar associations, and in his profession has won high and honorable standing. His practice is satisfactory in volume, and the clientele he serves is representative of the best interests of the city.

Mr. Hervey married, August 19, 1908, Helen Lucretia Shaw, daughter of Dr. John C. and Mary H. C. Shaw, of New Bedford. Mr. and Mrs. Hervey are the parents of two children : Homer Winthrop, Jr., born September 10, 1909; Mary E., born April 30, 191 1. Mr. Hervey has his law offices on Pleasant street, opposite Masonic building, the family home being at No. 189 Maple street, corner of Tremont street. New Bedford.

The Summers family is said to be of Flemish origin, SUMMERS and to have been first known in England at the time of the Reformation. Property was granted to them at a former religious seat a short distance from Worcester, and this became the family seat. Here they resided and here they entertained Queen Elizabeth in her progress through Worcestershire in 1585. Many of the members of this family became men of distinction and renown. One branch of the family moved into Dorsetshire, England, and it is from this branch that the Virginian family is descended. The name is variously spelled Somers, Sommers, Sumers and Summers, but the Virginians of this stock have in general used the form Summers. As is well known, the tracing of ancestries in Virginian families is attended with much difficulty and many dangers of error, so that the results are often incomplete or uncertain, if not both. In the present case there is much more material for judgment than in many, and the following account is based on good evidence and confidently believed to be correct from the time of the settlement of the family in Virginia, which cannot have been greatly posterior of the coming of the family to America.

(I) John Summers, the first member of this family about whom we have definite information, was born in Maryland, in 1687, died near Alexandria, Virginia, December 4, 1791. Coming early into Virginia he settled on the Potomac, where the city of Alexandria now is, and his cabin was the first building erected on the site of this city. The first framed house ever put up at this place was prepared under his direction and on his land, being afterward hauled therefrom to its intended site. The country abounded at that time in deer, bears, wolves, wild turkeys and other animals, and his earlier years were largely passed in hunting. He became an active leader of the white settlers and a pioneer in the campaigns against the Indians west of the Blue Ridge. Hunting, however, was still a favorite employment. So little did he care about the acquisition of land that he refused a deed from the patentee for the land on which Alexandria has been built and on which he lived in exchange for a rifle. In his later years he was much engaged in pointing out the best vacant lands and in conducting surveyors and others through the forests. At last he did acquire from four hundred to six hundred acres of land for each of his sons, but he did not do this for his daughters. He lived to see Alexandria become a place of some importance. The home, on the Little river turnpike, about four miles west of that city, which he bequeathed to his son Francis was long known as one of the finest estates in Fairfax county. At the time of the revolution John Summers was too old to take a part. He was a man of robust constitution, broad of chest and powerful, and retained his faculties to a remarkable degree, although he lived to be more than one hundred years old, but about a year before his death he was disabled by a severe fall. He was a member of the Church of England. The name of his wife is not known, but among his children the youngest son was Francis, of whom further.

(II) Francis, son of John Summers, was born in Fairfax county, Virginia, March 3, 1732, died at "Summers Grove," October 14, 1800. "Summers Grove" is the estate which he had inherited from his father, four miles west of Alexandria. His life was the quiet and uneventful life of a Virginia planter. For many years he held the office of magistrate. Being, like his father, a member of the Church of England or Protestant Episcopal church, he was a vestryman of Christ Church, Alexandria. He married Jane (Watkins) Charlton, born in 1735, died August 22, 1814. Children, so far as known to us: George, born October 5, 1758, died January 10, 1818, married, in 1776, Ann Smith Radcliffe; Thomas, of whom further; Francis; Samuel. All these sons settled in the Kanawha valley in 1810; George, accompanied by his daughter Jane, made an exploration of the Kanawha valley and of the Ohio valley between Wheeling and Guyandotte, and settled three years afterward at Walnut Grove, Kanawha county, Virginia, to which he brought his family in the winter of 1813-14. From him has come a prominent family of West Virginia.

(III) Thomas, son of Francis and Jane (Watkins-Charlton) Summers, came from Fairfax county, Virginia, and settled on the Kanawha river, in Mason county, Virginia, one mile above Winfield; according to the best information his settlement was made about 1816. He was a farmer. He married Hooper. Child, George W., of whom further.

(IV) George W., son of Thomas and (Hooper) Summers,

was born, probably in Fairfax county, Virginia, January 17, 1812. He was a farmer, and about 1838 became a member of the state militia. He was a Democrat and a Methodist. He married, January 29, 1835, Sarah A., born in Cabell county, Virginia, May 12, 1813, daughter of Adam and Elizabeth (Cockburn) Black. Children: 1. Quintilian L., born March 12, 1836, died September 28, 1842. 2. Sylvester Adams, born January 23, 1838, died May 8, 1912; a Confederate soldier. 3. John William, born May 15, 1840. 4. Constantine Ruf us, born October 9, 1842; Confederate soldier. 5. Edgar Lewis, born October 29, 1844. 6. Thomas Bascom, born March 11, 1847. 7. Tyra Campbell, born November 6, 1849. 8. Matthew James, of whom further.

(V) Matthew James, son of George W. and Sarah A. (Black) Summers, was born in Cabell county, Virginia, June 9, 1852. His home is now at Huntington, West Virginia, and he is a baggage master on the Chesapeake & Ohio railroad. Mr. Summers is a Democrat and a Methodist. He married, February 24, 1875, Elizabeth Handley, born June 6, 1855, daughter of Warren P. and (Handley) Rece. Children: 1. Gertrude Medora, born January 1, 1876. 2. Frederick Lindley, of whom further. 3. Olive June, born November 11, 1879. 4. Lewis Rece, born May 31, 1882, died December 5, 1883. 5. Florence Buffington, born June 6, 1885. 6.

(VI) Frederick Lindley, son of Matthew James and Elizabeth Handley (Rece) Summers, was born in Cabell county, West Virginia, near Milton, December 26, 1877. His education was received at Huntington, West Virginia; there he attended the public schools, including the high school, and he pursued also a business course at Marshall Business College in the same city. December 19, 1899, he became a stenographer at Parkersburg, West Virginia, for the Ohio River railroad, in the maintenance of way department, and in this position he remained until October 1, 1903. From that date to the first of May in the following year he was assistant cashier at Parkersburg for Armour & Company, Then he was general bookkeeper for the General Distributing Company, of Clarksburg, West Virginia, until August 15, 1906. He was secretary of the Penn Table Company, at Huntington, West Virginia, from August 15, 1906, to February 1, 1911. Since that date to the present time he has been a partner in the firm of Logan & Summers, insurance agents at Parkersburg. In this city also Mr. Summers now makes his home. He is a member of the United Commercial Travelers, Council No. 35, at Parkersburg. In Masonry he is a master mason, member of Mount Olivet Lodge, No. 3, of Parkersburg; a Royal Arch Mason, being a member of Adoniram Chapter, No. 11, at Clarksburg; a member of Huntington Commandery, No. 9, Knights Templar, at Huntington; and of Beni Kedem Shrine, Ancient Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, at Charleston. He is also a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Lodge No. 198, of Parkersburg. Mr. Summers is a Democrat. He and his family are members of the Baptist church.

He married, at Parkersburg, October 26, 1904, Donna, daughter of John A. and Mary E. (Cochran) Hutchinson, who was born at Parkersburg, February 26, 1879. Her father was a lawyer of this city. Children: Frederick Lindley, born at Clarksburg, July 23, 1905; Mary Elizabeth, born at Huntington, August 1, 1909.

The Summers family is said to be of Flemish origin, SUMMERS and to have been first known in England at the time of the Reformation. Property was granted to them at a former religious seat a short distance from Worcester, and this became the family seat. Here they resided and here they entertained Queen Elizabeth in her progress through Worcestershire in 1585. Many of the members of this family became men of distinction and renown. One branch of the family moved into Dorsetshire, England, and it is from this branch that the Virginian family is descended. The name is variously spelled Somers, Sommers, Sumers and Summers, but the Virginians of this stock have in general used the form Summers. As is well known, the tracing of ancestries in Virginian families is attended with much difficulty and many dangers of error, so that the results are often incomplete or uncertain, if not both. In the present case there is much more material for judgment than in many, and the following account is based on good evidence and confidently believed to be correct from the time of the settlement of the family in Virginia, which cannot have been greatly posterior of the coming of the family to America.

(I) John Summers, the first member of this family about whom we have definite information, was born in Maryland, in 1687, died near Alexandria, Virginia, December 4, 1791. Coming early into Virginia he settled on the Potomac, where the city of Alexandria now is, and his cabin was the first building erected on the site of this city. The first framed house ever put up at this place was prepared under his direction and on his land, being afterward hauled therefrom to its intended site. The country abounded at that time in deer, bears, wolves, wild turkeys and other animals, and his earlier years were largely passed in hunting. He became an active leader of the white settlers and a pioneer in the campaigns against the Indians west of the Blue Ridge. Hunting, however, was still a favorite employment. So little did he care about the acquisition of land that he refused a deed from the patentee for the land on which Alexandria has been built and on which he lived in exchange for a rifle. In his later years he was much engaged in pointing out the best vacant lands and in conducting surveyors and others through the forests. At last he did acquire from four hundred to six hundred acres of land for each of his sons, but he did not do this for his daughters. He lived to see Alexandria become a place of some importance. The home, on the Little river turnpike, about four miles west of that city, which he bequeathed to his son Francis was long known as one of the finest estates in Fairfax county. At the time of the revolution John Summers was too old to take a part. He was a man of robust constitution, broad of chest and powerful, and retained his faculties to a remarkable degree, although he lived to be more than one hundred years old, but about a year before his death he was disabled by a severe fall. He was a member of the Church of England. The name of his wife is not known, but among his children the youngest son was Francis, of whom further.

(II) Francis, son of John Summers, was born in Fairfax county, Virginia, March 3, 1732, died at "Summers Grove," October 14, 1800. "Summers Grove" is the estate which he had inherited from his father, four miles west of Alexandria. His life was the quiet and uneventful life of a Virginia planter. For many years he held the office of magistrate. Being, like his father, a member of the Church of England or Protestant Episcopal church, he was a vestryman of Christ Church, Alexandria. He married Jane (Watkins) Charlton, born in 1735, died August 22, 1814. Children, so far as known to us: George, born October 5, 1758, died January 10, 1818, married, in 1776, Ann Smith Radcliffe; Thomas, of whom further; Francis; Samuel. All these sons settled in the Kanawha valley in 1810; George, accompanied by his daughter Jane, made an exploration of the Kanawha valley and of the Ohio valley between Wheeling and Guyandotte, and settled three years afterward at Walnut Grove, Kanawha county, Virginia, to which he brought his family in the winter of 1813-14. From him has come a prominent family of West Virginia.

(III) Thomas, son of Francis and Jane (Watkins-Charlton) Summers, came from Fairfax county, Virginia, and settled on the Kanawha river, in Mason county, Virginia, one mile above Winfield; according to the best information his settlement was made about 1816. He was a farmer. He married Hooper. Child, George W., of whom further.

(IV) George W., son of Thomas and (Hooper) Summers, was born, probably in Fairfax county, Virginia, January 17, 1812. He was a farmer, and about 1838 became a member of the state militia. He was a Democrat and a Methodist. He married, January 29, 1835, Sarah A., born in Cabell county, Virginia, May 12, 1813, daughter of Adam and Elizabeth (Cockburn) Black. Children: 1. Quintilian L., born March 12, 1836, died September 28, 1842. 2. Sylvester Adams, born January 23, 1838, died May 8, 1912; a Confederate soldier. 3. John William, born May 15, 1840. 4. Constantine Ruf us, born October 9, 1842; Confederate soldier. 5. Edgar Lewis, born October 29, 1844. 6. Thomas Bascom, born March 11, 1847. 7. Tyra Campbell, born November 6, 1849. 8. Matthew James, of whom further.

(V) Matthew James, son of George W. and Sarah A. (Black) Summers, was born in Cabell county, Virginia, June 9, 1852. His home is now at Huntington, West Virginia, and he is a baggage master on the Chesapeake & Ohio railroad. Mr. Summers is a Democrat and a Methodist. He married, February 24, 1875, Elizabeth Handley, born June 6, 1855, daughter of Warren P. and (Handley) Rece. Children: 1. Gertrude Medora, born January 1, 1876. 2. Frederick Lindley, of whom further. 3. Olive June, born November 11, 1879. 4. Lewis Rece, born May 31, 1882, died December 5, 1883. 5. Florence Buffington, born June 6, 1885. 6. Harry Lee, born September 26, 1887. 7. Robert Pritchard, born November 1, 1889. 8. Herbert Sidney, born November 21, 1893.

(VI) Frederick Lindley, son of Matthew James and Elizabeth Handley (Rece) Summers, was born in Cabell county, West Virginia, near Milton, December 26, 1877. His education was received at Huntington, West Virginia; there he attended the public schools, including the high school, and he pursued also a business course at Marshall Business College in the same city.

10262 William Clayton received a patent for 500 acres in Chester Co.,PA. Moved from Chygoes Island, which was renamed Burlington by the Quakers, and is no longer an island.

It has been determined that Willliam Clayton is NOT the son of a London lawyer, or Oxford University dignitary that was previously claimed.

A Will Bond in lieu of a Will was signed by his son, William Clayton, Jr. and is number 119 for the year 1689 in the Register of Wills office of the City and County of Philadelphia, PA.

Exactly when William Clayton became a Quaker is not known, but he was active as a Friend before he emigrated on the ship Kent to New Jersey. Samuel Janney in his "History of the Religious Society of Friends" speaks of a William Clayton going on a missionary trip to Ireland in 1656. Joseph Besse in his "Collections of Sufferings for Sussex" has this entry: "On the 7th day of the 12th month of this present year 1663, Edward Hamper, Nicholas Rickman, Tristram Martin, William Turner, John Baker, John Sanfold, Richard Newman, William Clayton and Henry Wolger for the sake of truth they did profess in meeting together to wait upon the Lord with the rest of the Meeting (Chichester) then assembled, were by one Major Mills with his band of armed men and with guns and swords drawn and in a violent manner took out of the said meeting twenty persons and had them to an inn, where they were kept till midnight and in the meantime the said Major Mills sent for William Gratwick, called a Justice of the Peace in this County of Sussex, and for no other cause were the several persons afore named by him the said Gratwick, committed to goal and the rest he bound over to answer for that offence,, so called, who accordingly appeared at the Assize, but were not called for anything said to them in relation to that matter, but at the following Sessions the aforementioned persons who were committed to goal were fined every many six pounds for the said meeting, and because for conscience sake they could not pay their fines aforesaid, they were committed to the House of Correction for six months in the town of Arundel (about 10 miles to the east) where they lay until it was expired, but here it is to be noted that John Snasfold aforesaid was fined but three pounds, and for not paying it lay there three months. "

And the same "Collection for Lancashire" has this entry for 1665: "As William Clayton was preaching in a Meeting at Padisham, the Priest of that Parish, attended by a Constable with a Warrant, came into the Meeting, pulled William out on the street,, tore his coat. The Constable then carried him before the Justices, who tendered him the Oath of Allegiance, and upon his refusal to take it, committed him to prison till the next sessions, when the Justices fined him five pounds for being at an unlawful Assembly, and committed him to the House of Corrections for three months. The Officers, for pretended fees and charges of carrying him thither, took his coat off his back. The keeper put him into a dungeon for five days and nights, till some moderate people of the town procured him the common liberty of the house for the rest of the time."

Two Quakers, Edward Byllinge and John Fenwick were partners in a proprietorship for West Jersey purchased for Lord Berkeley. Because of financial difficulties, Byllinge signed over his share to William Penn and two other creditors who in turn sold proprietary lots to two companies of Friends, one from Yorkshire and one from London. Commissioners were appointed to "purchase from the Indians" or "to extinguish the Indian title" to the land and they shipped ion the Kent. William Clayton was among those who came with these Commissioners. There were seventeen family heads listed on the Kent which started loading in March 4 1677 and finally sailed in the early summer. They passed the royal barge in the Thames and were given a blessing by King Charles II who was undoubtedly glad to see them go. After a stop in New York, the Kent sailed up the Delaware late in August and finally settled in "Chygoe's Island," This became Burlington, NJ. There were some scattered buildings from the Swedish settlement there, but during the first winter many of the settlers had to be sheltered in sheds, tents and stables. "The Concessions and Agreements of the Proprietors, Freeholders and Inhabitants of the Providence of West Jersey in America" had been drawn and signed before the trip was undertaken. This document of civil and religious liberty was the Friends first experiment in legislation. It created an executive and a legislative power, provided that a Governor be chosen by an Assembly which in turn was elected by the people, and became the basis for the common law of the province. This colony predated Pennsylvania by five years.

The fact that William Penn referred to William Clayton as "cousin" as well as "friend" has not been explained.

Time Line: William Clayton was born 1 year prior to the first town government in the colonies being organized in Dorchester, Massachusetts

10263 William G. Stuart

Few men are more widely, and none more favorably, known than William G. Stuart, who for almost half a century has resided here and during the greater part of that time has been identified with its commercial interests, always maintaining an unsullied reputation for enterprise and business integrity. For the past twelve years he has been engaged in real estate, fire insurance and bonds operations, and the substantial success he has derived from these fields of activity is an evidence of his ability, his sagacity and his progressive methods.

He was born in Lebanon, St. Clair county, Illinois, August 31, 1851, a son of John and Eliza (Glover) Stuart. The father was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, October 8., 1808, his parents being Rev. John and Anne (Alderman) Stuart, natives of Edinburgh, Scotland and Holland, respectively, who were married in this country. The former was a minister in the Presbyterian church and father of four children, two sons and a daughter growing to maturity.

John Stuart, the father of William G. Stuart, spent his boyhood days in Seneca Falls, New York, and received his education in the old academy at Rochester, that state. He played the flute in the band which assisted in entertaining Marquis de La Fayette, on his visit to that city when he was traveling through the United States. There also, during a three years' apprenticeship, he learned the trade of millwright, and afterwards built many mills in Canada, Michigan and Illinois. He was of a strong mechanical turn of mind and made a machine to cut grass, the first manufactured in the United States. He claimed that McCormick pirated his idea and derived benefits from his inventions which consisted of a stationary sickle and movable guards. With another he organized a clock company at Hartford, Connecticut, with a distributing center in Jacksonville, Illinois, and employed a number of men to sell clocks in this section of the country. For a time he was interested in a stage line, which he had helped to organize and which ran from Painted Post, Michigan to
