Alfred 'the Great'
Born at Wantage, Berkshire, in 849, Alfred was the fifth son of Aethelwulf, king of the West Saxons. At their father's behest and by mutual agreement, Alfred's elder brothers succeeded to the kingship in turn, rather than endanger the kingdom by passing it to under-age children at a time when the country was threatened by worsening Viking raids from Denmark.
Since the 790s, the Vikings had been using fast mobile armies, numbering thousands of men embarked in shallow-draught longships, to raid the coasts and inland waters of England for plunder. Such raids were evolving into permanent Danish settlements; in 867, the Vikings seized York and established their own kingdom in the southern part of Northumbria. The Vikings overcame two other major Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, East Anglia and Mercia, and their kings were either tortured to death or fled. Finally, in 870 the Danes attacked the only remaining independent Anglo-Saxon kingdom - Wessex, whose forces were commanded by King Aethelred and his younger brother Alfred. At the battle of Ashdown in 871, Alfred routed the Viking army in a fiercely fought uphill assault. However, further defeats followed for Wessex and Alfred's brother died.

As king of Wessex at the age of 21, Alfred (reigned 871-99) was a strongminded but highly strung battle veteran at the head of remaining resistance to the Vikings in southern England. In early 878, the Danes led by King Guthrum seized Chippenham in Wiltshire in a lightning strike and used it as a secure base from which to devastate Wessex. Local people either surrendered or escaped (Hampshire people fled to the Isle of Wight), and the West Saxons were reduced to hit and run attacks seizing provisions when they could. With only his royal bodyguard, a small army of thegns (the king's followers) and Aethelnoth earldorman of Somerset as his ally, Alfred withdrew to the Somerset tidal marshes in which he had probably hunted as a youth. (It was during this time that Alfred, in his preoccupation with the defence of his kingdom, allegedly burned some cakes which he had been asked to look after; the incident was a legend dating from early twelfth century chroniclers.)

A resourceful fighter, Alfred reassessed his strategy and adopted the Danes' tactics by building a fortified base at Athelney in the Somerset marshes and summoning a mobile army of men from Wiltshire, Somerset and part of Hampshire to pursue guerrilla warfare against the Danes. In May 878, Alfred's army defeated the Danes at the battle of Edington. According to his contemporary biographer Bishop Asser, 'Alfred attacked the whole pagan army fighting ferociously in dense order, and by divine will eventually won the victory, made great slaughter among them, and pursued them to their fortress (Chippenham) ... After fourteen days the pagans were brought to the extreme depths of despair by hunger, cold and fear, and they sought peace'. This unexpected victory proved to be the turning point in Wessex's battle for survival.

Realising that he could not drive the Danes out of the rest of England, Alfred concluded peace with them with the treaty of Wedmore. King Guthrum was converted to Christianity with Alfred as godfather and many of the Danes returned to East Anglia where they settled as farmers. In 886, Alfred negotiated a partition treaty with the Danes, in which a frontier was demarcated along the Roman Watling Street and northern and eastern England came under the jurisdiction of the Danes - an area known as 'Danelaw'. Alfred therefore gained control of areas of West Mercia and Kent which had been beyond the boundaries of Wessex. To consolidate alliances against the Danes, Alfred married one of his daughters Aethelflaed to the ealdorman of Mercia (Alfred himself had married Eahlswith, a Mercian noblewoman), and another daughter Aelfthryth to the count of Flanders, a strong naval power at a time when the Vikings were settling in eastern England.

The Danish threat remained, and Alfred reorganised the Wessex defences in recognition that efficient defence and economic prosperity were interdependent. First, he organised his army (the thegns, and the existing militia known as the fyrd) on a rota basis, so he could raise a 'rapid reaction force' to deal with raiders whilst still enabling his thegns and peasants to tend their farms.

Second, Alfred started a building programme of well-defended settlements across southern England. These were fortified market places ('borough' comes from the Old English burh, meaning fortress); by deliberate royal planning, settlers received plots and in return manned the defences in times of war. (Such plots in London under Alfred's rule in the 880s shaped the streetplan which still exists today between Cheapside and the Thames.) This obligation required careful recording in what became known as 'the Burghal Hidage', which gave details of the building and manning of Wessex and Mercian burhs according to their size, the length of their ramparts and the number of men needed to garrison them. Centred round Alfred's royal palace in Winchester, this network of burhs with strongpoints on the main river routes was such that no part of Wessex was more than 20 miles from the refuge of one of these settlements. Together with a navy of new fast ships built on Alfred's orders, southern England now had a defence in depth against Danish raiders.

Alfred's concept of kingship extended beyond the administration of the tribal kingdom of Wessex into a broader context. A religiously devout and pragmatic man who learnt Latin in his late thirties, he recognised that the general deterioration in learning and religion caused by the Vikings' destruction of monasteries (the centres of the rudimentary education network) had serious implications for rulership. For example, the poor standards in Latin had led to a decline in the use of the charter as an instrument of royal government to disseminate the king's instructions and legislation. In one of his prefaces, Alfred wrote 'so general was its [Latin] decay in England that there were very few on this side of the Humber who could understand their rituals in English or translate a letter from Latin into English ... so few that I cannot remember a single one south of the Thames when I came to the throne.'

To improve literacy, Alfred arranged, and took part in, the translation (by scholars from Mercia) from Latin into Anglo-Saxon of a handful of books he thought it 'most needful for men to know, and to bring it to pass ... if we have the peace, that all the youth now in England ... may be devoted to learning'. These books covered history, philosophy and Gregory the Great's 'Pastoral Care'- a handbook for bishops, and copies of these books were sent to all the bishops of the kingdom. Alfred was patron of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle (which was copied and supplemented up to 1154), a patriotic history of the English from the Wessex viewpoint designed to inspire its readers and celebrate Alfred and his monarchy.

Like other West Saxon kings, Alfred established a legal code; he assembled the laws of Offa and other predecessors and of the kingdoms of Mercia and Kent with his administrative regulations to form a body of Anglo-Saxon law. 'I ... collected these together and ordered to be written many of them which our forefathers observed, those which I liked; and many of those which I did not like I rejected with the advice of my councillors ... For I dared not presume to set in writing at all many of my own, because it was unknown to me what would please those who should come after us ... Then I ... showed those to all my councillors, and they then said that they were all pleased to observe them' (Laws of Alfred, c.885-99).

By the 890s, Alfred's charters and coinage (which he had also reformed, and extended its minting to the burhs he had founded) referred to him as 'king of the English', and Welsh kings sought alliances with him. Alfred died in 899, aged 50, and was buried in Winchester, the burial place of the West Saxon royal family.

By stopping the Viking advance and consolidating his territorial gains, Alfred had started the process by which his successors eventually extended their power over the other Anglo-Saxon kings; the ultimate unification of Anglo-Saxon England was to be led by Wessex. It is for his valiant defence of his kingdom against a stronger enemy, for securing peace with the Vikings and for his farsighted reforms in the reconstruction of Wessex and beyond, that Alfred - alone of all the English kings and queens - is known as 'the Great'.

From Robin Dane Pierce:
Michael PIERCE - b. 1615 in England ; d. Mar. 25,1676, Cedar Falls,
RI. Little is known about his ancestors. He was commissioned a Captain
by the Colony Court in 1669. On Sunday March 26, 1676, while leading a
company of about 65 Englishmen and 20 friendly Indians, he and his
company were ambushed by a band of Narragansett Indians led by chief
sachem Canonchet at Attleboro Gore on the banks of the Blackstone near
present day Central Falls, RI. Nine of his men were captured and taken
to a spot in Cumberland, RI, now called Nine Men's Misery, and
tortured to death. Arriving too late, a relief force found and buried
the bodies of the nine. A few days later, Canonchet was captured and
executed. Capt. Pierce's will, dated Jan 15,1675, was proved Jul. 22,
1676. Will can be viewed at web site of Stephen M. Lawson
From Michael Pierce (
The actual birthdate of Michael Pierce, usually found as Captain
Michael Pierce, is not known, although it is generally given as about
1615. This is based upon his first wife's birthdate and the age of his
children. He first shows up in the records of Hingham, MA in the
1640's. He later moved to Scituate. There is still a street there
called "Capt Pierce Rd." He was active in the affairs of the town, as
his name appears in a few official records. He was killed at Central
Falls, RI on March 26, 1676, as was most of his command. There are two
plaques in Central Falls which commerate this fight; one is in the
park at Pierce Park and Riverwalk.
As far as the line being traced back 24 genrations, some genealogists
have taken the line that far, however, I have been unable to
substantiate it. There have been at least three names given for his
father, but none of these have been proved either. It is said he had
brothers Richard, John, and William. Again, there is no absolute proof
of this.
His son Ephraim later lived in Providence, RI, and Swansea and
Rehoboth, MA. My line is Michael, Ephraim, Mial, Job, Job Jr.,
Benonia, Hiram, Benonia, Frank, and Lawrence.
I have some information on some other branches of the family, as well
as information on some of the related families. Several of these lines
go back to England in the 1500's. If you are interested, or if you
have additional information for me, please let me know.

"To get their mail the first settlers had to go to Memphis. Later Willie Darnell carried the mail from Kirksville to Memphis and dropped mail at Willmathville and Bible Grove after which a postoffice was established. Mrs. Matilda Hunt said in her account (In the summer of 1855) a man by the name of Cheatem set up a little box house and put in some groceries and a few notions to sell. It went by the name of "Hardscrapple". Later it was sold to Tom Humphrey who kept a store during the Civil War and they kept the Post Office also."

Prof. Pius B. Humphrey. The claim of Prof. Pius B. Humphrey upon the esteem and confidence of the people of Caney, Kansas, is based upon five years of faithful and efficient service in the office of superintendent of city schools. When he came to this city, in 1911, he was admirably fitted to take charge of the institutions in which the mind of youth is molded and developed, and since that time he has through steady and constant endeavor built up a school system which may be said to be second to none of a city this size in the state. His entire career has been devoted to work of an educational character, and in whatever community he has centered his activities he has always gained the good will and respect of his fellow-citizens.

Professor Humphrey was born in Scotland County, Northeastern Missouri, April 7, 1872, and is a son of Thomas P. and Sarah Jane (Stough) Humphrey. The family originated in England and the original American progenitors cnme to this country long before the Revolutionary war, being early settlers of Kentucky. From that state the family branched out to other parts of the country, one going to West 'Virginia, in which state was born in 1803, William Humphrey, the grandfather of Pius B. In 1838 William Humphrey came to the West, locating in Lewis County, Missouri, and twenty years later went to Scotland County. After a long and successful career passed as a farmer and stockraiser, he retired from active pursuits and moved to Knox County, Missouri, where his death occurred in 1885. He was a man of industry and progressiveness, honorable and trustworthy with his business associates, and a man who wielded a distinct influence in his community because of his general information and good judgment. He married Eliza Pettit, who was born in 1801, in West Virginia, and died in Scotland County, Missouri, in 1887, and among their children were the following: Ann, who married David Stice, a retired farmer, and resides at Downing, Missouri; Marten, who is a retired farmer of Hurdland, Missouri; and Thomas P.

Thomas P. Humphrey was born in March, 1832, in Kentucky, and was six years of age when taken by his parents to Lewis County, Missouri, where he was reared and educated. He was brought up to farming pursuits, and on attaining his majority followed in the footsteps of his father and adopted agriculture and stockraising as his life vocations, pursuits in which he was engaged throughout his career, with the exception of several years passed in merchandising. Through good management and industry and operations carried on along well-directed lines, he accumulated a good property and was in fairly comfortable circumstances at the time of his death, which occurred in Scotland County, September 4, 1911. He had been a resident of that county from 1858. Mr. Humphrey was a citizen who always supported measures for the benefit of his community, but did not engage in politics, save to cast his vote in favor of the candidates nearest his ideal. His religious connection was with the Baptist Church.

Mr. Humphrey married Miss Sarah Jane Stough, who was born July 30, 1842, in Ohio, and who died on the home farm in Scotland County, Missouri, May 18, 1916, and they became the parents of the following children: Melissa, who became the wife of Jesse E. Epperson, a farmer and stockraiser of Adair County, Missouri; Bettie Elizabeth, who is the wife of L. H. Ashby, a farmer and stockraiser of Knox County, Missouri, and the rural mail carrier of his community; Marten, who taught school for twenty years before becoming the owner of a large and valuable ranch in Garfield County, Washington, on which he died in 1895; William, the owner of a ranch and a stockraiser in Knox County, Missouri, who has also taught school for many years in his community; Thomas, who is engaged in operations on the old home farm in Scotland County; J. H., who is a resident of Denver, Colorado; Alice, who is the widow of Thomas Cashman, and resides at Keokuk, Iowa; Nora, who is the wife of J. E. Burns, a dairyman of Hannibal, Missouri; Pius B., of this review; Pearl, who is the wife of F. M. Long, engaged in merchandising at La Platte, Missouri; May, who is the wife of Virgil Donoehew, a farmer of Scotland County, Missouri; A. A., who is a farmer and stockman of Adair County, Missouri; Zoe, who .died in 1903, in Scotland County, Missouri, as the wife of Ed Donoehew, a brother of Virgil, who now resides in Kansas and is a farmer and stockraiser; Mina, who died young; and P. C., who is unmarried and resides on the home farm in Scotland County.

Pius B. Humphrey received his early education in the public schools of Scotland County, Missouri, following which he took a course at a preparatory college at Hurdland. He began his career as an educator in 1893, in the State of Washington, and remained there during that and the following year, when he returned to Missouri and for seven years taught in the public schools. During that time, in 1902, he entered the Missouri State Normal School, at Kirksville, from which he received a life teacher's certificate in 1906. In 1908 he was given the degree of M. P. from that institution, and three years later the same school conferred upon him the degree of B. S. Mr. Humphrey resumed teaching in 1906 and for two years was principal of the schools at Bolckow, Missouri, then going to Centralia, Missouri, as superintendent of schools, an office which he held for three years. After one year in a like capacity at Lebanon, Missouri, he was brought to Caney, Kansas, in 1911, and here has since held the position of superintendent of city schools. Under Mr. Humphrey's supervision are four schools, thirtyfive teachers, and approximately 1,300 scholars. He has done much to improve the system and to elevate the educational standard here, and during his administration several new schools have been erected and a great many improvements installed. Professor Humphrey is a member of the Kansas State, Montgomery County and Southeastern Teachers' associations. He is a democrat in politics, a member of the Presbyterian Church, and fraternally is connected with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, at Centralia, Missouri.

Professor Humphrey was married in Adair County, Missouri, in 1893, to Miss Lula Rankin, daughter of David and Mollie Rankin, the former of whom died in 1892, while the latter still survives and makes her home at Kirksville, Missouri. Mr. Rankin was a successful farmer and stockraiser. Two children have been born to Professor and Mrs. Humphrey, namely: Cleo, who died in infancy; and Jewell, born November 27, 1898, who is now a member of the junior class at the Caney High School.

Grand duke of Kiev (1019-54); son of Vladimir I. Designated by his father to rule in Novgorod, he became grand duke of Kiev after defeating his older brother Sviatopolk, who succeeded Vladimir I. A shrewd statesman, he consolidated the power and prestige of Kiev. He regained W Galicia from the Poles (who had obtained it in return for supporting Sviatopolk), crushed (1036) the Pechenegs (nomadic invaders), and suppressed rebellions by Lithuanian and Finnish tribes. In 1043 he organized the last Russian campaign against Constantinople, in which his troops were routed. At home he encouraged learning, codified laws, erected magnificent buildings and churches, including the famous Cathedral of St. Sophia, and founded (1039) a patriarchate in Kiev. Yaroslav was in close contact with European dynasties; his daughters were married to Harold III of Norway, Andrew I of Hungary, and Henry I of France. Before his death Yaroslav divided his kingdom among his heirs, designating the oldest, Iziaslav, as grand duke of Kiev; the others were told to obey Iziaslav as they had their father. Yaroslav's sons did not follow his advice, however, and civil war ensued.

Robert III's 11 (12)-year old second son James had been captured by the English on his way to France where his father had sent him for safety to protect him from his uncle, the Duke of Albany. He was a prisoner of the English for the next 18 years but was well educated by the English at the English court. At his father' s death in 1406, he was recognized by the Scottish parliament and was finally released for a ransom of 60,000 merks payable over six years (the Treaty of London) and allowed to return home at the age of 21.

During his reign, he restored respect for the monarchy. When he returned home he found that corruption prevailed, the country was in decline and taxes were not being paid. He set out to restore order to the Kingdom. He beheaded the Duke of Albany's son, Murdoch, his sons and the Earl of Lennox, the first state executions in over 100 years.

Being brought up at the English court, he tried to reform the Scottish parliament in the style of the English but he endeavored to weld these into existing Scottish practice. The nobles opposed him but he passed restrictive laws curbing their power and bringing them back into line. These laws were passed without the approval of the King's Council and broke all the rules of law in Scotland. His attempts at innovation were not immediately successful but his reign is a landmark in the constitutional history of Scotland. He tried to make parliament more efficient not because he wanted to share his authority but because he wanted to ensure that his subjects should be obedient and enjoy good laws, justly administered. After James had brought the nobles into line, he turned his attention to the Church which had also fallen into disrepute and forced the Church to exercise more control over its clergy. A group of nobles who were resentful of the laws James had passed conspired together to put an end to his rule. The conspirators hoped to win the throne for Walter, a son of Robert II by his second marriage. The King gave a party at Blackfriars in Perth. When all the guests had arrived, the dissenting nobles showed up even though they had not been invited. The servants warned the king and he, fearing for his life, went to a secret stone in the floor to escape. He went down the steps to an underground room that he thought would lead him to safety outside of the building. However, a week before the party the exit had been blocked off, the story being that croquet balls were always running through the exit and getting lost. The nobles, under the leadership of Sir Robert Graham, searched the castle but could not find the king. They soon discovered the stone and the king in hiding. James begged for mercy but was told that he had had no mercy on others and was stabbed with a dagger. The murderers did not have the support of the country and Queen Joan was determined to bring them to justice. She had them captured and tortured mercilessly for two days. They were killed or died of their torture. James is buried at Perth where he was murdered.

David was the youngest son of Margaret and Malcolm III. No one expected him to become king but his reign proved to be an outstanding one for Scotland. He married a granddaughter of Earl Siward of Northumbria and through that alliance had a legitimate claim to a large part of northern England. He had been a prisoner of his uncle Donald Bane but escaped and was brought up at the court of Henry I. He became familiar with English and Norman ways. He was treated well by Henry who arranged a marriage for him to the heiress of vast Northumberland estates. Henry appointed him the ruler of Cumbria, thereby increasing his power. When Henry died he took advantage of the confusion and inaction to press into England taking Carlisle and Newcastle before he was defeated at the battle of the Standard. King Stephen (of England) at the time was not in a position to alienate the Scottish king and by the Treaty of Durham David gained control of Northumbria. As Earl of Huntingdon, David had to swear an oath of loyalty to the English king. Having been brought up in England when he returned to Scotland to succeed Alexander, he took with him powerful Anglo-Norman influences which would eventually transform Scottish society. David's Norman friends soon held most of the important positions within the Church and State. He issued the first Scottish coinage and honored his mother's piety by establishing monastic center. David gave the Normans lands which meant they the Normans gained landowner privileges and authority over the lives of those living on their land. In the lowlands the Celtic ways of tribe and kinship were replaced by the new feudal system of laws and regulations. David influenced language development so that while Gaelic was spoken by highlanders, Inglis, a Scottish variant of English, was adopted in the south. His reign enhanced the prestige of the monarchy. He maintained order, and overcame his enemies partly with the support from the Normans by establishing royal burghs and shires and a system of control over the people. He was deeply religious as was his mother and he founded many abbeys. The king assigned lands to the abbey and in return gained protection and spiritual support from the abbots, monks and clergy. His only son Earl Henry died in 1152. He was married to the daughter of the Earl of Surrey and they had three children, Malcolm IV, Will the Lion and David. He appointed his grandson Malcolm as his successor.

Donald Ban or Bane (Fair) was the younger brother of Malcolm III. Donald claimed the crown on the grounds of tanistry at the age of 60, but was deposed a year later by Malcolm's son, Duncan, who was backed by the English King.

For a shot time, Duncan II, son of Malcom III became King. Then, again, Donald Ban became King. After being deposed he had joined forces with his cousin Edmund (note: in looking at the relationships, Donald would be an uncle of Edmund) who was a son of Malcolm and Margaret. They managed to kill Duncan II and together ruled Scotland (Donald in Scotia and Edmund in Lothian). They were opposed by Edmund's brother Edgar who declared himself a vassal of the King of England and with the help of an English army overthrew the pair. Edmund was pardoned and became a monk. Donald Ban was blinded and sentenced to life imprisonment. As a reprisal, Donald strangled his nephew David's eldest son.

England was the preferred goal and largest source of income for the Vikings. The country was divided into a number of small kingdoms which were often at odds, a situation the Danes knew how to make the best of. In 835 they plundered the area surrounding the estuary of the Thames. These plunderings can be considered the beginning of Danish activities in England throughout the next few centuries. There were plunderings, conquest of land with subsequent settlement. The end was the conquest by Svend Tveskæg and Cnute the Great of the entire country at the conclusion of the Viking era.

In 865 a large army of Vikings planted itself in East Anglia where it began several years of war and conquest. The crucial event took place in 876 when the military leader Halfdan allocated land to his men in Northumbria. This gesture was repeated the following year in the kingdom of Mercia where the Vikings received land and became permanent settlers on farms. The rest of the army was given land in 879 in East Anglia. This meant the creation of Danelaw, the country living under Danish law and reign. Together with the royal quarters at York, the five towns of Lincoln, Stamford, Nottingham, Derby and Leicester became the strongpoints of the Danish reign.

In the south, in the kingdom of Wessex, the English King Alfred continued to reign. In 866 a peace treaty was concluded between the Viking King Guthrum and King Alfred on peaceful relations between the two groups of people. Apparently the Danes did not consider the peace treaty particularly binding since already in 892 the Danes once again tried to subdue Wessex. A large Viking fleet arrived from the Frankish empire to England and with this as their ally the permanently settled Danes attacked Wessex. The battle went on for four years without the Vikings managing to vanquish King Alfred whereafter the Danish army disbanded. King Alfred died in 899 but his descendants gradually recaptured the Danish possessions, and by the 920s Mercia and Northumbria were once more under Anglo­Saxon supremacy. Today the Nordic settlement in England is easily discernible in the many surviving geographical names. The Vikings had brought their own name custom from home and we have examples of a number of place names identical to those used in the North, among them ­by, ­toft and ­torp. Place names alone ending on ­by are known in the former Danelaw .

Through long periods of the 900s it was relatively peaceful along the west European and English coasts but by the end of the 900s hostilities returned. From 980 on sources tell of frequent raids and huge demands of silver for the marauding Vikings. In 1013 Svend Tveskæg subjugated all of England. He died in 1014 but in 1016 his son Cnute the Great reconquered power. King Cnute died in 1035 and with the conclusion of his reign stability in England was no more. The last Danish king occupying the English throne was Harthacnut who died in 1042.

As already said, it is not possible to discern Norwegians, Danes and Swedes from each other in the ships crews arriving at the west European coast and England. The crews were often a mixed lot but sources clearly show that the Danes dominated in raids on England while the Norwegians played the most prominent part in the northern English isles, the Isle of Man, in Scotland and Ireland.

After the death of Raoul, Robert's brother-in-law and successor, Louis was chosen by the nobles to be king.

Malcolm was known as the Maiden because he never married and maintained a vow of chastity. Malcolm was only 11 years old when he came to the throne. There were several rebellions during his reign because his succession was disputed. However it was during his reign that the first references were made in written charters to the "Kingdom of Scotland." He was forced to renounce his rights to Northumbria when Henry II became king of England. Although this improved Scotland's relationship with England, the Scottish nobles were not pleased.

On the death of Eadred, who had no children, Eadwig was chosen to be king since he was the oldest of the children in the natural line of the House of Wessex. He became king at 16 and displayed some of the tendencies one could expect in one so young, royalty or not. Historians have not treated Eadwig especially well, and it is unfortunate for him that he ran afoul of the influential Bishop Dunstan (friend and advisor to the recently deceased king, Eadred, future Archbishop of Canterbury and future saint), early in his reign. An incident, which occurred on the day of Eadwig's consecration as king, purportedly, illustrates the character of the young king. According to the report of the reliable William of Malmesbury, all the dignitaries and officials of the kingdom were meeting to discuss state business, when the absence of the new king was noticed. Dunstan was dispatched, along with another bishop, to find the missing youth. He was found with his mind on matters other than those of state, in the company of the daughter of a noble woman of the kingdom. Malmesbury writes, Dunstan, " regardless of the royal indignation, dragged the lascivious boy from the chamber and...compelling him to repudiate the strumpet made him his enemy forever." The record of this incident was picked up by future monastic chroniclers and made to be the definitive word on the character of Eadwig, mainly because of St. Dunstan's role in it.

Dunstan was, after that incident, never exactly a favorite of Eadwig's, and it may be fair to say that Eadwig even hated Dunstan, for he apparently exiled him soon after this. Eadwig went on to marry Ælgifu, the girl with whom he was keeping company at the time of Dunstan's intrusion. For her part, " the strumpet" was eventually referred to as among "the most illustrious of women", and Eadwig, in his short reign, was generous in making grants to the church and other religious institutions. He died, possibly of the Wessex family ailment, when he was only 20.

Robert the Bruce, 2nd Earl of Carrick and grandson of the old Competitor had supported Edward I against Balliol but, when Wallace renounced the guardianship of Scotland Bruce and Balliol's nephew,John "Red" Comyn replaced him as joint guardians. After a quarrel with Comyn he returned to Edward's camp and obtained a pardon. Bruce, seeking a reconciliation with Comyn, impulsively stabbed him at Dumfries in a church. He was again outlawed by Edward and excommunicated. Bruce claimed the Scottish throne as great-great-grandson of David I and was crowned at Scone in 1306. He went into hiding in a cave on an island off Ireland after he killed Red Comyn. This is where we get the legend of Bruce and the spider. We do not know if this is a true story but it makes a good legend. He watched the spider spinning its web and attempting to fix the web to the ceiling. At last the spider succeeded. According to the legend, this inspired Bruce to overcome his many hardships and persevere until he had won back Scotland. He made plans to take back his original home, Turnberry Castle. As they made their way to the castle, the plan was that if all was well, a light would be showing at the castle wall. They did see the light but upon nearing the castle, discovered that it was an enemy fire. Nonetheless, Bruce attacked and by this surprise attack gained food, armour and horses. He learned that three of his brothers and his wife, daughter and two sisters had been imprisoned by the English. Although he was now King, he was not well supported by the nobles and so Scottish lands and castles remained in the hands of the English. He knew that he would have to fight castle by castle in order to regain Scotland and drive the English out. Through his perseverance, by 1324 all castles in Scotland except Stirling were in Scottish hands. By this time Edward II was on the throne of England and was much more ineffectual than his father.

Bruce's much smaller force spectacularly defeated Edward II's 20,000 strong army at Bannockburn. I will say no more here about the Battle as it has been so well written by Skye.

The Declaration of Arbroath, an affirmation of Scottish independence, was sent to the Pope but the Pope did not recognize Bruce for four years as the rightful king of Scotland. After Edward III ascended to the throne, Bruce's army harassed the English so much that Edward III was forced to acknowledge his sovereignty and Scotland's freedom.

Not long after the peace Bruce died. He was buried in Dunfermline Abbey. He had always wanted to go on a crusade. When he died his heart was placed in a silver casket and kept by Sir James Douglas who planned to take it on a crusade to the Holy Lands. Douglas joined the army of the King of Spain and while fighting a battle was killed. But before he died, he threw the casket in the midst of the battle crying, "Now go before, brave heart, as you always did, and I shall follow you or die." The casket was recovered
and returned to Scotland.

At the end of Bruce's life, he had achieved what he had fought for years to accomplish. Scotland was once again an independent kingdom. Scotland remembers him as "Good King Robert" and his triumph at Bannockburn is a rallying cry to Scots everywhere. Scotland would never again be conquered. Bruce's final legacy was to confirm "Scotland as separate and distinct, not just as a kingdom but as a community, a people and ultimately a nation."

[NOTE: TANISTRY. The Pictish system of succession was matrilineal. The Scottish system was determined by tanistry - the succession by a previously elected member of the royal family. During the lifetime of the king an heir was chosen and known as tanaiste rig (second to the king). This manner of rule remained until Malcolm II decided on the principle of direct descent. After Malcolm died the succession was based on direct descent.]

William succeeded his unmarried brother, Malcolm IV. He got his name because of the emblem he adopted for his armor. Armor encased a knight from head to toe and made him unrecognizable. Therefore, each knight adopted an emblem to be recognized by one another. William's was a "roaring, clawing beast of blood in red on a yellow background" - the Lion Rampant. This became the emblem of Scotland. William ruled for 49 years which made him the longest reigning monarch in Scotland up to that time. His brother had made peace with King Henry of England but William led an army to Northumberland to take Alnwick Castle. He was defeated, captured and imprisoned in Normandy. The price of his release was his kingdom. He was released after he accepted Henry II as overlord of Scotland. Henry died 15 years later and Richard Coeur-de-Lion came to the English throne. Richard's ambition in life was to go on a crusade. He needed money for such an undertaking and William the Lion was able to buy back the sovereignty in 1189 by giving 10,000 merks to Richard I's third crusade, thereby being released from being a vassal of the English king. William produced a son (and several daughters), Alexander II. He paid a dowry of 15,000 merks to secure the marriage of his two daughters to King John's sons but this bargain was broken by the English king.

Capt. Wright L. Coffinberry [Grand Rapids Eagle]

Capt. Wright L. Coffinberry was born at Lancaster, Ohio, April 5, 1807. His father, George L. Coffinberry, was born in Berkeley county, Va. He was a farmer and cut the first road from Wheeling, W. Va., to Zanesville, Ohio, and drove the first team over it. He went to Chillicothe, Ohio, in its earliest days and four years later removed to Lancaster, at a period when it was first laid out. The mother of the deceased, Elizabeth (LITTLE) Coffinberry, was a native of Berkeley county, Va. His parents fixed their residence at Mansfield, Ohio, in 1809, when their son was two years old. He received a common school education and at eighteen years of age left the farm to learn the trade of millwright and carpenter, which calling he followed thirteen years, winning a good repute as a. mechanic. At the solicitation of the Civil Engineers' Corps of Ohio he enrolled himself in that body in 1836 and has seen much active service in civil engineering in the States of Ohio and Michigan.

In 1844 he went to St. Joseph, this State, and in 1846 came to this city, where he opened a watch and clock repair shop which he carried on for four years. In 1850 he was elected first city surveyor and three years later was engaged by the government as surveyor of lands in the northern part of the State. In 1854 he was again elected city surveyor and held the position three years. He has platted about one hundred and fifty additions to the city. In 1859 he surveyed a State road from Grand Rapids to Northport, in the extreme north of Leelanaw county, the location of which cost a month's travel on foot carrying a knapsack. In 1860 he fulfilled a contract to construct a road forty miles long north of Newaygo, cutting and bridging it. In 1861. he enlisted and raised a company of 100 men in this city (Co. C, First Regiment Michigan Engineers and Mechanics). He Served as captain One and one-half years during the war of 'the Rebellion, when he resigned.

His collection of plans and drawings and curious remains of his career in his profession is novel and affords matter for much entertainment. In 1881 he was elected county superintendent of the poor, which position he held for six years, discharging the difficult and delicate duties with marked ability and faithfulness.

He was married August 18, 1831, near Mansfield , 0., to Jane BEACH, who was born in Pennsylvania and reared in Ohio. August 18, 1881, they celebrated their golden wedding. Mrs. Coffinberry survives him, aged nearly eighty-four years. They have had four children: Emma, who died in 1844; Andrew B. , married and residing in this city; Rebecca J. and Julia F., who have long been widely useful teachers in the city schools.

Mr. Coffinberry had had an experience covering a list of vicissitudes equal to most men who were representatives of the old pioneer period. He began the work of temperance here many years ago and labored unremittingly in its interest. He was, one of the earliest members of the republican party, and never swerved from fealty to that party.

He had been connected with the Odd Fellow and Masonic orders for many years. During his early residence in this city he was a member of the Lyceum This was, superseded by the Lyceum of Natural History. During the war the latter barely existed, and finally was merged in the Kent Scientific Institute, which is an important institution of the city. Of this he has always been an active member, serving at different periods as the president of all these societies, and for several years he was chairman of the committee on archaeology He had made many explorations in that line, collecting many valuable relies in archaeology.

He was a man of abounding kindness of heart, of the most absolute integrity with profound religious convictions which actuated his every moment of life, and with a reputation as a man and a citizen which is a rich legacy for his family. His death will be mourned in many a household besides his own, and his wise counsels and exemplary life will be remembered with Pleasure by all who have had the rare good fortune to, know him.

Mr. Coffinberry left his home in Grand Rapids, Mich., Tuesday morning, March 26, 1889, in his usual health, and expired in a street car, without a moment's warning. He was a gentleman of unusual vigor, both of body and mind, and this continued until the day of his death.

Captain William Pierce in the early history of the colonies was the
most celebrated master of ships that came into the waters of New
England. He was on very intimate terms with all the leading colonists,
and was a warm friend of Winslow and Bradfor. He was first noticed in
the early records of the colony in 1622, when he was master of
the"Paragon," the owner of which ship was his brother John Pierce of
London. In 1623, Capt. Pierce brought over to Plymouth the "Anne" with
her noteworthy company. In 1624, he came in the "Charity," conveying
Winslow, with his cattle which were the first brought in New England.
In 1625 he was at Plymouth in the "Jacob," again bringing Winslow and
more cattle.
In 1629, he commanded the renowned "Mayflower," and in her he took a
company from Holland as far as the Bay on their way to Plymouth; and
in the next year, Feb., 1630, he came with the "Lion" from Bristol,
England, which was a part of Winthrop's fleet. Owing to the
destitution at the Bay, he was hurried back for provisions, with which
he returned November 22, just as the crisis of the famine had arrived.
He also brought sixty passengers, including Roger Williams and his
wife Mary. november 29, 1631, he came over again in the "Lion," and
with him John Elliot and Governor Winthrop's wife. In 1632 he sailed
once more to Boston and Plymouth in the "Lion;" but after carrying
Winthrop to Weymouth lost his ship on the Virginia coast, for which
place he sailed October 27, 1632. In 1634 he was gathering Oldham's
corn in the "Rebecca," and taking observations in the "Narragansett,"
and the next year commanded the defense of London, and was first in
the West Indies, and then later on in ice, rescuing refugees from the
Connecticut Valley and returning them to Boston. In 1636, with the
fine new ship "Desire," one hundred and twenty tons, built for him at
Marblehead, he went with Endicott's force to Block Island. In 1637, he
carried supplieds from Boston for the soldiers of the Pequod War and
acted as tender. In 1638, he sailed between Boston and the West
Indies; and it is sad to relate that according to the usage of the
times, he took out several Pequod prisoners as bondmen, and returned
with a few negro slaves, though even then some leading citizens
condemned this traffic. At this time he seems to have presented
Winthrop with what the latter calls an alegarto - an animal which much
interested the grave Bostonians. In 1638, he cleared the "Desire" from
London with passengers for Boston; the English officers writing his
name "Piers." From Boston he kept on to the West Thames in
twenty-three days -a passage which would even now reflcet much credit
on such a craft and its captain.
It is well known that Pierce's Almanack for 1639 was the first thing
in book form printed in the English colonies.
"Saints and Strangers" by George F. Willison pg 242 A week or two
later the Charity reappeared in the harbor, again under the command of
Captain William Peirce, renowned as the "ferryman of the North
Atlantic" because he brought across so many of New England's early
settlers, later settling down himself at Boston. Master of ANNE - of

Chicago:Chapman Brothers,1885, pages 339-340.

Stephen W. Gilkison is one of the industrious, frugal and successful
agriculturists of Burr Oak Township, and is worthy a place in an Album of
this description. He is a native of Mansfield, Richland Co., Ohio, where he
was born on the 12th of June, 1843. His father, George C., was the son of
James Gilkison, a native of Kentucky, and a pioneer of that county. He was
fully established in business as a mason, to which he was succeeded by his
son, the father of our subject. Besides George he was the father of twelve
children, of whom four daughters are now living.

George C. Gilkison, the father of our subject, came to Michigan and located
at Centreville in the year 1844, remaining there about twelve months.
Thence he removed for about two years, and then went to Clingers Lake.
After that he came to Sherman in this county, finally locating in Burr Oak,
in the year 1866. The maiden name of his wife and faithful life companion
was Mary KEASEY, who bore him nine children, of whom our subject was the
fourth born.

The subject of our sketch is a man of character, wide information, and with
large ability as a farmer, a faithful and true friend as well as citizen.
In the spring of 1846 he enlisted in defense of the Union, becoming a
member of Company G, 11th Michigan Infantry, and served almost two years.
During that time he saw many of the larger and more important engagements,
besides other service. Among the battles in which he fought may be named
those of Peachtree Creek, Resaca, Atlanta and others. He came out of the
military service unscathed, excepting as his constitution had been strained
by exposure and camp life. He received an honorable discharge in 1865 at
Nashville, Tenn.

On the 10th of April, 1870, Mr. Gilkison and Priscilla FREED were united in
marriage at Burr Oak. The wife of our subject is a daughter of John and
Priscilla FREED. It was her misfortune to lose her father by death when she
was about three years of age. Her mother subsequently removed to Ohio, and
later married Mr. James C. BLANCHARD, of Burr Oak, one of the venerable and
much respected pioneers of this county. Our subject's marriage has been
blessed by the birth of ten children, whose names are as follows: Salathiel
S., Zavala V., George R., Leston T., Clarion M., Amcy, Nina L., Joy L.,
Sherman Blaaine and Mary Gertrude.

Our subject, although not a leader in political affairs, is always glad to
bear his full part and responsibility as a citizen and as a member of the
Republican party, with which he has worked and voted for many years.

Charles II or Charles the Bald

823-77, emperor of the West (875-77) and king of the West Franks (843-77); son of Emperor Louis I by a second marriage. The efforts of Louis to create a kingdom for Charles were responsible for the repeated revolts of Louis's elder sons that disturbed the latter part of Louis's reign. When Lothair I, the eldest and heir to the imperial title, attempted to reunite the empire after Louis's death (840), Charles and Louis the German marched against their brother and defeated him at Fontenoy (841). Reaffirming their alliance in 842 (see Strasbourg, Oath of), they signed (843) with Lothair the Treaty of Verdun (see Verdun, Treaty of), which divided the empire into three parts. The part roughly corresponding to modern France fell to Charles. He was almost continuously at war with his brothers and their sons, with the Norsemen (or Normans, as they came to be known in France), and with rebellious subjects. When Charles's nephew Lothair, son of Lothair I and king of Lotharingia, died in 869, Charles seized his kingdom but was forced by the Treaty of Mersen (870) to divide it with Louis the German. In 875, at the death of his nephew Louis II, who had succeeded Lothair I as emperor, Charles secured the imperial crown. His reign witnessed the growth of the power of the nobles at the expense of the royal power and thus marked the rise of local feudalism. Charles's chief adviser was Archbishop Hincmar.

The Harvey Book, Oscar Jewell Harvey, 1899, pages 35-37:

THOMAS Harvey,(Thomas), born in Somersetshire, England, in 1617, came with his brother William to Dorchester, Mass., in
1636. [Sec page 26 ante.] Two years later he was settled at Cohannet, as is evidenced by the following deposition recorded in Plymouth Colony Records, Deeds, Vol. I., p.38:

"The deposition of Thomas Harvey of Cohannet yeoman aged xxj yeares or thereabout" (taken before Thomas Prince, gent., Goyr.. the eight day of Nov. in the xiiij yeare of his Maj’ Y Reigne of England 1638)."

"The said Thomas Harvey deposeth and sayth, That he this deponent having a bond or writing under the hand and scale of Walter Knight, Carpenter, whereby the said Walter Knight stood endepted in the sume of five pounds sterling unto Mr. Christopher Derby, which was paid for his passage over, for which five Pounds is to be payed unto Mr. Richard Derby here, as this deponent was reading the same (at sd Knights re-quest) in the ship as they came over, the said Walter Knight snatched the said bond or writing out of this deponents hand and immediate! tore the same an pieces."

Thomas Harvey was not one of the "first and ancient purchasers" of Cohannet (one reason for this being that he was under twenty-one years of age when the purchase was made), but between 1639 and 1642 he and thirteen others were adraitted as "proprietors of Taunton" upon the payment of twelve shillings each; by virtue of which payment, it was voted, the new proprietors - known as "12-shilling men" - had "“and shall have a right in future divisions of land."

In 1643, by order of the General Court, a list of "all the males able to beare Armes from xvj Yeares old to 60 yeares, within the seurall
Towneshipps," was made. Taunton’s list (see Plym. CoL Rec., VIII.: 195) contains fifty-four names, and the only Harvey in the list is "Thom Harvey." (His brother William was at this time living in Boston.)

Thomas was married about 1642 to Elizabeth Andrews (born in England in 1614), sister of Henry Andrews* of Taunton. Thomas Harvey died in Taunton in 1651, aged thirty-four years; and a year or two later his widow was married to Francis Street of Taunton, to whom she bore a daughter named Mary, who was living in Taunton in 1724, unmarried. Francis Street died early in 1665 (William Harvey was one of the appraisers of his estate in June, ‘65), and on the 10th of the following December the widow Elizabeth was married (3d time) to Thomas Linkon, or Lincoln, the Taunton miller, whose grist.mill (built in 1652 or ‘3) stood on the west side of Mill River, between the present Cohannet and Winthrop streets.

* HENRY Andrews was included in the list of freemen, from Cohannet dated 7 March, 1636; was one of the purchasers of Taunton in 1637; Was one of the Seven men admitted end sworn as freemen 4 Dec., 1638; was one of the Deputies to the General Court in 1639 when the town was first organized, and also in 1643, ‘4, ‘7 and ‘9. He built the first meeting-house in Taunton, in payment for Which (in whole or in part) the town conveyed so him the “calves’ pasture” in 1647. He died at Taunton in 1653, and in his will (dated 13 March, 1653, and recorded In Plym. Col. Records) bequeathed so his sister Elizabeth Harvey, " widow * * * in Taunton * * a cow which is now in the keeping of George Macey, which my will is shall belong so her children."

War; he was active in the town, elected as a Trooper in 1671 for 5
years and in 1685 was, along with Joseph Alden, Surveyor of Highways.

Cyrus was one of the first in Maine to engage in boot and shoe manufacture on a large scale. He and Noble Munroe bought out and reorganized the old Minot Shoe Company in 1843, doing business under the firm name of Packard & Munroe. This move laid the foundation of much of the Munroe and Packard fortunes. The Minot Shoe Company had been organized in West Auburn and chartered by the Maine Legislature in 1835.

Daniel Williams line is highly speculative. There is nothing to
substantiate the placekeepers in this genealogy for his parental line,
other than the migration of several Williams' from Taunton area, and
probably a finite potential from those Williams' living in Easton at
the time. He could have as easily been a descendant of John, or
Benjamin, two of the earliest settlers from Taunton, or of other
Taunton family members who settled there. The Keith and Dean names
are also prevalent in Taunton, Bridgewater-- as in later Easton.
HISTORY OF EASTON: "The first industry at the Morse privilege, South
Easton village was a saw-mill. In 1739 Daniel Williams bought a large
piece of land on the west side of Mill River at this place, with
house, barn, orchards, fences, etc. Between that time and 1747 this
saw-mill was errected. . . .in 1747 Daniel Williams brought a suit
against Daniel Keith ...The case was won by Daniel Williams. He
carried on the business here for many years, probably until his death,
which occurred in 1782." HISTORY OF EASTON: Origin of the furnace

David J. Stice, a well-known farmer and stock dealer of Mount Pleasant Township, was born near where he now resides, August 2, 1837, and is the son of Jesse and Lavina (March) Stice. The father was born in Kentucky, January 7, 1809, and was of German descent. He came with his parents from Kentucky to Howard County, Mo., when a boy, and lived in Monroe and Boone Counties until coming to Scotland Conuty. He was the first white man to build a house in the county, coming here in 1827, and remained there until he moved to Queen City, in 1877. He was a farmer the principal part of his life, and was a well-respected citizen. He died in Schuyler County, Mo., April 27, 1887.

The mother of our subject, also a native of Kentucky, was of German descent, and died in Scotland County, Mo., about 1841. Both parents were members of the Christian Church. David was the eighth of eleven children, eight of whom are now living. He received his education in the common schools of Scotland County, and remained with and worked for his father until his marriage, which occurred September 25, 1866, to Miss Ann Eliza Humphrey, a daughter of William K. Humphrey, and a native of Washington County, Ky., born April 26, 1833. To them were born nine children, five now living: Sarah E., Arthur C., Cornelia, Melvina, Ruth; and those deceased are William H., Asa, Lillian and Augusta. Mr. Stice has a fine farm given him by his father, which he has improved, and of which he can be justly proud. During the late war he served six months in Col. Purmort's command, and was in several skirmishes. He and wife are worthy members of the Christian Church, and he is decidedly in favor of the prohibition of the liquor traffic. He is a good citizen and excellelant man.

Edgar was made King of Mercia and Northumbria in 957 and succeed to the throne of Wessex at his brother, Eadwig's, death in 959. With this, Edgar was King of Mercia, Northumbria and Wessex (the three most powerful kingdoms in England at that time), simultaneously and could be considered the first ruler of a United England. Some of his predecessors were Kings of All England by virtue of being King of Wessex and, at the same time, enjoying a temporary military ascendancy over the other kingdoms.
He was formally crowned in 973 and received the ceremonial submission of all the other kings in Britain. He wisely recalled (St.) Dunstan from exile and made him Archbishop of Canterbury and his closest personal advisor. His reign was prosperous and peaceful and he is generally credited with the revival of the English church.

"Killam's wife was the widow of Millie Weston, Sister of Edmund Harvey, and a well taught woman for the times. It is a little remarkable that her two husbands, Weston and Killam, were both drowned in the Connecticut while engaged in rafting. She died in November, 1781 and was buried at the corner of the Cushing cemetery where the roads meet. By her side John Killim, brother to Charles, was buried not long after that, but no headstones were ever set up for either. "[note on this article indicates that the information source was Miss Mary Harvey, 1870]

"Next above Josiah Clark's place came the farm and residence of Edmund Harvey, who was born in Attleborough, Mass., 1757, where he spent his boyhood. On the breaking out of the Revolutionary War, he enlisted in a company under the command of Captain Goldsmith, and served through a portion of the war. Having finished his period of service in of the army, he came with his father's family to Hartland, whence be found his way into Woodstock about 1781. In the early part of 1782, he married in Bridgewater, Mass., Mary Harvey, his second cousin, and the next year, in the month of February, started for Woodstock with family and stores. On his way he left baggage and stores at No. 4, and pushed forward with wife and child to Cornish, where he put up at Chase's tavern. After being weather-bound here a few days, taking the ferry-boat the 5th day of March, they succeeded in crossing the river safely. Wife and child now pushed forward to Hartland and put up at the house of Mr. Luce, while Mr. Harvey returned to No. 4 for baggage and stores. It took him between four and five weeks to get through and back to Cornish again. No need of ferry-boat now. Such had been the severity of the weather during his trip to No.4 and back that Connecticut River, though in high flood, and though it was now the second week in April, was frozen over solid, so that he crossed it with his loaded teams on the ice. He then pushed on through Hartland, picked up wife and child by the way, and reached and camped down on his own farm just six weeks after the first crossing of the River at Cornish. The farm consisted of twenty-five acres of land purchased of Josiah Clark, not a rod of which was cleared as yet, and the snow was still plentiful and deep, though it was past the middle of April. Harvey occupied at first the log hut Clark had vacated, but after two years he built a better one twenty-five or thirty rods further down the road. This log house had two large rooms on the ground floor, in which the family ate and slept and performed all their domestic labors, including spinning and weaving, making butter and cheese, and preparing fowls for market. ln the summer of 1795, Mr. Harvey put up a frame house about fifteen rods further down the road. This building, after standing many years, was taken down by George W. Harvey, in August, 1878.

On the 29th of April, 1807, Mr. Harvey went with his son Nathan over to Mr. Burtch's store in Hartford, to settle an account. On his return in the afternoon, he attempted to cross the river above Taft's dam in a canoe. The river was high from a spring flood, the current proved too strong for the rowers, and the boat was swept over the dam. The young man escaped, but Mr. Harvey was carried down the stream and drowned.2

Footnote 2: Fortunately the latter (the son, about twenty years of age), after being carried down the falls for some distance, was preserved by means of some flood wood from receiving any material injury. Edmund Harvey's body was accidentally found on Tuesday, May 12th, following, near the mouth of Quechee River. (Spooner's Vt. Journal, May 18, 1807.)"

page 99
"After the death of Edmund Harvey the Farm continued in possession of the family, and is still occupied by George W. Harvey, grandson of the above."

Research Note:
*There is a known Y-DNA connection from a descendant of Marshall Harvey to this Joseph Harvey's ancestor Thomas Harvey b. 1716 and this is the only Thomas Harvey descendant that fits all of the known facts regarding Marshall Harvey if the Edmund and Marshall, below, are brothers. 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)
*Edmund's grandfather is likely this Joseph Harvey, son of Nathaniel b. 1673 and Susannah. If so, assuming Edmund and Marshall are brothers, then likewise for Marshall Harvey.

Edmund II (981?-1016), Saxon king of the English (1016). Edmund was King of England for only a few months. After the death of his father, Æthelred II, in April 1016, Edmund led the defense of the city of London against the invading Knut Sveinsson (Canute), and was proclaimed king by the Londoners. Meanwhile, the Witan (Council), meeting at Southampton, chose Canute as King. After a series of inconclusive military engagements, in which Edmund performed brilliantly and earned the nickname "Ironside", he defeated the Danish forces at Oxford, Kent, but was routed by Canute's forces at Ashingdon, Essex. A subsequent peace agreement was made, with Edmund controlling Wessex and Canute controlling Mercia and Northumbria. It was also agreed that whoever survived the other would take control of the whole realm. Unfortunately for Edmund, he died in November, 1016, transferring the Kingship of All England completely to Canute.

Edward Greenlee came from Ireland when only five years of age and
lived in Botetourt Co., VA; removed from that part of the state to the
western part of the same state, now West Virginia, and settled in
Mason Co. He had two brothers, John and Frank, both of the pilots on
the great Kanawha River -- said to have been the best pilots that ever
made the run from Charleston to Cicinnati. He was in the Revolutionary
War and stood within a short distance when Cornwallis surrendered.

Edward was probably a brother of William Greenlee of West Virginia, He
came from Ireland sometime after 1771 as his son, William, was born

brother, William, who had been living in Botetourt County Virginia,
since 1766. The two brothers, with their families, moved to what is
now Mason County, West Virginia, about 1800. Edward Greenlee was a

The family name is in fact Bruges and this is what Henry wrote in his will dated 06/12/1537 (Probated London 29/01/1538). Sister Joan only had two children by Gifford - whatever his first name was - namely John and Anne. Henry mentioned only them as grandchildren in his will. Joan did marry a Mr. Thornehull before the date of the will. Henry also mentioned his wife Margery late deceased who had a son Robert Bedford. Henry was indeed the son of the Thomas Brugge (Bruges) mentioned and Florence Darrell. Henry additionally mentioned and left money to Anne Darrell daughter the daughter of Constantine Darrell. So all of Henry's information ties up very nicely. The line from brother Sir George Darrell through Margery ties into the line of the ancient family - Longs of Wraxall and that ends with very aged Catherine Long spinster (1717-1814). Ironically her residuary legatees were a Reverend Chas. Coxwell and an ancester Thomas Bruges of Seend. Thomas died in 1835 after his wife and three daughters and nearly all the land and money passed into the Ludlow family.

Sir Richards wife Jane Spencer was also burried in Ludgarshall and there is a sculpted monument there, pretty impressive I am told but I have not seen it yet.

Regards, hope that this is helpful,

Peter Bruges

(descending from Thomas's nephew Thomas! who also died 1835!)

Brydges, Henry (I11925)

Embarked on the sailing vessel "Humboldt", March 1, 1854. On the 22nd of April following he landed in New York City and made his way directly to Jo Daviess County Illinois.

Portrait and Biographical Album of Jo Daviess and Carroll Counties, Illinois (1889), p. 471-72

Fred Oldenburg: This gentleman may be classed among the most prosperous and prominent farmers and stock-raisers of Jo Daviess County. He has been a resident of Northern Illinois over 30 years, and first settled on land now occupied by the present site of Galena. Next he removed to another farm in the same township, and from there, in 1871, to the valuable homestead which he owns. This comprises 329 acres of land, located on section 1. It is nearly all in a productive condition, and stocked with excellent grades of cattle, horses, and swine. As a farmer, Mr. Oldenburg has been uniformly successful; while as a business man and a member of the community, his record does him great credit. He began life here very poor in purse; and, by the exercise of his native energy, has arisen to an enviable position, socially and financially.

The native place of our subject was on the other side of the Atlantic, in the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg, Germany, where his birth took place Nov. 27, 1831(sic). His parents, Christian and Mary (Burns) Oldenburg, were natives of the same Province as their son, and there spent their entire lives; the mother dying at the age of sixty-four years, and the father when seventy-three. They were most worthy people, and members in good standing of the German Presbyterian Church. Their family consisted of four sons, namely: Christopher, who married a lady of his own country, and continues to reside there, engaged in farming; Fred, our subject; Christian, who came to America, married Miss Lena List, and, with his family, resides in West Galena Township; and John, a shoemaker by trade, pursuing his calling in Galena. Henry died in July, 1882, leaving a daughter, who lives in Galena.

Mr. Oldenburg, our subject, received a good education in the free schools of his native Province, and remained there until a young man twenty-three years old. Then, desirous of bettering his condition, he determined to cross the Atlantic, and embarked on the sailing-vessel “Humboldt,” at Hamburg, March 1, 1854. On the 22d of April following he landed in New York City, and made his way directly to this county. He was ready to accept whatever came to hand in the way of employment, and was soon engaged as a farm-laborer. With genuine German thrift and prudence, he soon began to save money; and thus obtained sufficient means to make his first purchase of land. In the meantime he was married in Galena, in November, 1865, to Miss Rosa McCarty. This lady was born in County Fermanagh, Ireland, Feb. 29, 1833, and is of Irish ancestry. Her father, Patrick McCarty, was a farmer of modest means, and died in his native land, at the advanced age of eighty years. Later, his widow came to the United States, and died at her home, in Galena, in 1888. She was in her girlhood Sarah McCormick.

Mrs. Oldenburg was reared and educated in her native country, and, when reaching womanhood, came to America with other members of the family. Her first home in this county was Galena, where she lived until her marriage. She is now the mother of six children, namely: Henry, Sarah M., Rosanna C., John B., Fred D., and Nathan, Jr.; all of whom are at home with their parents. The latter are members in good standing of St. Michael’s Catholic Church at Galena. Mr. Oldenburg has always voted the Republican ticket, and has held the various township offices. He was largely instrumental in laying off Rawlins Township, believing that in many respects it would be of great advantage to the people.

Research Note: "where his birth took place Nov. 27, 1831" is incorrect. The Tombstone date is Nov. 27, 1830 which does otherwise agree with the ages and dates in this article.

First Reverend in Bridgewater

For nearly a hundred and sixty years, till 1822, the people went to town-meetings in what is now West Bridgewater, the old centre of the town; and for fifty years they attended Sunday services at the same
place, till 1716, when this southern part of the town was organized as the South Parish for church and school purposes, and a meeting-house was built near the site of the present First Parish, or Unitarian,
church, the Rev. James Keith preaching the dedication sermon, August 14, 17I7 The house was forty-three feet by thirty-eight, without tower or belfry. A low partition up the centre separated the men and women, who sat on very rude benches; and the deacons sat in front of the pulpit, facing the people. August I8, the First Church in this parish, of more than fifty members, was organized• Benjamin Alien was immediately engaged to preach and on July g, 1718, was formally settled. He probably lived in the Edson-Lazell house, now occupied by Miss Clara Washburn, or certainly very near this site. After thirteen years he was released by a council in I730, and was afterward settled in Maine, dying there in 1764 Source::The Bridgewater Book

"To These fity-four were added Samuel Edson, the first miller, who came from Salem, and Rev James Keith, the first minister and Edson's son-in-law, educated at Aberdeen, and installed at
Bridgewater 1664 at the age of 21. "

According to Jarvis Edson: Born in Scotland, educated at Aberdeen and at the age of 18 emigrated to this country, arriving in Boston in 1662, and introduced to the church in Bridgeweater by Dr. Increase Mather.

From the Portrait and Biographical Album of Jefferson and Van Buren Counties 1890, published online: VanBuren Co. Ia Biographies Forum,, Posted by Fran Hunt on Sat, 27 May 2000

Charles E. Mosher, the owner of seven hundred and sixty acres of land in Van Buren County, his home being situated on Section 12, Jackson Township has resided in this community since 1854. In September of the previous year he came west and made purchase of three hundred and twenty acres of land in this county, to the cultivation and improvement of which he has since devoted his energies with excellent success.

Mr. Mosher was born on August 29, 1820 in Vermont, of which state his parents Alanson and Eunice Emerson Mosher were also natives. His maternal grandfather was one of the leading citizens of Windsor County Vermont; in fact he had a statewide reputation, especially in the Congregational Church, of which he was a prominent and active member. He was a contractor and builder by trade, and in connection with that carried on farming and operated a saw and gristmill. His business was an extensive one and he became a wealthy citizen. The father of our subject spent his entire life in the Green Mountain State, his death occurring in 1825. His wife survived him many years, dying at the age of seventy-five years. They were parents of four children, the youngest of whom died in infancy. Our subject is the only one of the family now living; George C. died in Vermont some years ago; and Francis T. died on September 2, 1890 of heart disease, in Rochester Vermont. He was then seventy-two years of age and was one of the most prominent and leading citizens of that community. His popularity was due to his upright life, which won him the respect of all with whom he came in contact. He filled various offices of trust in the county and his public and private career was alike above reproach. He became a well to do citizen, which leaves his family in comfortable circumstances. A wife, four children and his brother Charles were left to mourn the loss of one who had never forfeited a claim to their affection, but, had bound himself to them by closer ties of love, as the years rolled along. His memory will be cherished, by his brother who remains.

Mr. Mosher spent the days of his boyhood and youth in his native county, whence he came directly to Van Buren County Iowa. Having previously attained to mature years, he chose as a helpmate in life's journey Miss Caroline T. Whiting, their union being celebrated in July of 1850. The lady was born November 16, 1832, and was a daughter of Stephen A. and Rebecca Morris Whiting. Seven children were born unto them, four sons and three daughters, namely: Napoleon, Charles, George, Frank and Eunice wife of George W. Gillson; Rebecca and Carrie. After a happy wedded life of thirty-six years, Mrs. Mosher passed away in 1886, dying of consumption. Mr. Mosher was married the second time to Lutherie Cutler Hervey in November 1887, and in whom he finds a most agreeable companion and helpmate.

As before stated, on his arrival in this county, Mr. Mosher purchased three hundred and twenty acres of land in Jackson Township and the following year purchased an adjoining eighty-acre tract. To this he has added from time to time as his financial resources have increased, until he is now one of the most extensive landowners of the county, his possessions aggregating seven hundred and sixty acres, the greater part of which is under a high state of cultivation and finely improved. In connection with general farming he is also engaged in stock-raising, which branch of his business has proved very profitable, he keeping from thirty to forty head of horses, from forty to fifty head of cattle, and seven hundred head of sheep of the medium breed. He is a member of the Anti Horse Thief Association, and in politics is a Republican when questions of State or national importance are brought up for settlement, but at local elections he votes for the man who he thinks will best fill the office. Mr. Mosher is an independent thinker. He arrives at conclusions unbiased by the judgment of others, but independently determines each question for himself after careful consideration. To others he allows the same privilege, and although he may differ radically on many points, those opposing him recognize his fair and upright spirit and render him respect accordingly.

Mr. Mosher, though not a soldier, was one of the most active supporters of the Union cause. He was a member of a home company known as the "True Blues," whose object was to guard the interests of the Union at home. Mr. Mosher was the Captain of the company.

Johnann Christian Bodenhamer

From the Book by Ione Huess -

Settled in Hunterdon Co. NJ where his first 4 children were born. He moved to Rowan Co. NC in 1774. It should not be forgotten that in the County of Mecklenburg, a Declaration of Independence was passed 20 may 1775, more than a year before the more celebrated instrument of the same name was adopted by the continental Congress at Philadelphia. North Carolina probably had a greater number of Loyalists in proportion to its population than any other colony.

Only fragmentary records of the roles the Bodenhamer men played in the war with Great Britian exist, but family traditions canot be disregarded. Seven pay vouchers are found in the Archieves at Raleigh showing payment to
Christian , William, Peter, and Christian.

Christian probalby received his pay as a patriot, one who furnished supplies to the Continental Army. The story is told that Christian 1) often hid sons of his neighbors from the Tories. 2) Peter came home from the army to visit and three Tories followed and grabbed him. Peter held onto the door frame of their home while his mother Charity, a small wowan, yell, " Rise boys, rise. The Tories are here." She was calling her other sons. The Tories ran thinking they were surrounded.

Christian was not long in assuming responsibility in his new land as shown by numberous entries in the court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions. In Feb., 1777 he signed a bond in the sum of 500 pounds with Charles Hinkle for the gardianship of the orphans of Peter Hinkle, deceased. He was an overseer for the Dan River Road and appeared on the 1778 tax list. During the years 1780 through 1783 Christian was often summoned for juryduty and was appointed assessor in the Hpewll District. By 1785 he was deeding some of his land to
his children. On 1 Feb. 1786 he witnessed the will of Barnett Idol with James Evans and Henry Davis. The last entry found for him was on 10 Aug. 1786 when he and his son, William received a grant for 400 acres on Water of Hambey's Creek.

Administration of the Estate of Christian was on 6 Nov. 1788.

In a letter written by Christians grandson, Joseph Bradford Bodenheimer , a great grandson, wrote that he had been in the log house of Christian and It was of logs, puncheon floor, cabin roof, stick and clay chrmmey, a fire place then feet wide. the arch was of Poplar log hewn with three cornered and so high the writer has stood straight under it.

They had worshiped in New Jersey at German Reformed Church.

Abbots Creek Primitive as the first Baptist Church in northeastern Davidson Co. and was constituted in 1756. From the early church minutes of 1818 a petition was brought forward to " pale over the burying grounds" with Joseph Spurgin and William Bodenhamer as superintendents.

Lower Abbotts Creek cemetery is located at this church and Upper Abbott Creek Cemtary is accross the road from a split of the Church in 1832 lead by Ashley Swaim who had declared non-fellowhsip against the Baptist State Convention Bible Societies, Sunday Schools, and all aids to the the Baptist State Convention.

Blossom, Levi (I2904)

He was King from 1371 to 1390. He Suceeded his uncle, King David II on 22 FEB 1370. Robert II became King at the age of 54. He had been appointed Guardian of Scotland twice during the reign of David II and was an experienced statesman. Apparently, he was experienced in other things too since he produced 21 children (13 legitmate and 8 illegitimate). His first wife was Elizabeth, the daughter of Sir Adam Mure of Rowallan (9 children) and his second wife was Euphemia, daughter of Hugh, Earl of Ross (4 children). As with his uncle, David II, he did not have the fighting spirit of his grandfather and was a passive person who had a hard time controlling his family or his kingdom. Once again, there was war between England and Scotland. Scotland was assisted by France under the terms of the Auld Alliance.

One son of Robert II was Alexander, the Wolf of Badenoch, whose son abducted the widowed Countess of Mar and assumed the Earldom. Other sons included the Earl of Strathearn and the Earl of Atholl.

Regardless of the weakness of the Crown and the strength of the nobles, Robert II was still the 99th King of Scots (counting from the mythical Fergus).

Henry Harrison Sell disappeared from his home Sept. 18, 1887, leaving a family of eleven. Henry was a cooper by trade and an educated man. He and his wife Nancy (Comer) moved their family to Kansas in 1882, and lived in several places, among them being Parsons, St. Marys', St. Paul and Erie.

Henry organized a literary society. They met every Tuesday night when weather was good, people came from as far away as Erie and Parsons', to attend these meetings. Henry was considered a well to-do man and had a Farm in St. Paul. A railroad condemned some of his land and there was a bitter litigation over it. He finally gave up the fight and planned to find another farm. He left the morning of Sept. 1887, with a considerable amount of money and was never heard from again by any of the family.

Henry's disappearance was a mystery that all pursued through many years; there were many rumors that accounted for his disappearance but none were ever proven.

His wife Nancy said that while they lived in Kansas near Jacob Sell, Henry Harrison disappeared. He left because he was scared over his brother's murder and would not go out of doors. One story states that later, before he died under a false name in Oklahoma,he made a confession to the murder.

His will read as follows:
In the Name of God Amen the first day of December Anno Domine 1623, George Packard of Stonham Aspal in the County of Suffolk being of perfect mind and memory made his last Will and Testament nuncupative in form following, viz: He did will and bequeath unto Mary Packard his wife all his moveable goods the paying his debts and bringing up his children and he appointed the said Mary Packard his wife the Executrix of this his Will.
The following are witnesses:________Bloomfield, Robert Dennie.
Taken from the book "The Packards" p. 34, #94, #96, #98, by Brigadier
J. John
Ancestral File says "George Packard, b. ca 1579 Colmans, Stonham,

It appears to be a fair inference from the records cited in Appendix B, "Packard Documentary Mentions Ante 1612," in that the parents of George Packard of Stonham Aspal were John Packard and Joan Unknown of Earl Stonham. Unfortunately a definitive record of George's birth and/or baptism and parents has not been found.

In 1689 Maj. Wm .Bradford having made some claim to all the territory comprehended within the limits of Taunton, the town paid him £20 for his alleged rights, and he gave a deed of release and confirmation, to John Poole, William Harvey, Thomas Harvey, Sr., Thomas Harvey, Jr., and others, " propritors" [See orginal deed in possession of the Old Colony Historical Society, Taunton.]

William Harvey's death occureed at Taunton in the Summer of 1691. As the name of his wife is not mentioned in his will it is supposed that her death took place some time before. The following is a copy of his will taken from the Bristol county (MA) Probate Records, Book I., page 41 :

"William Harvey was probably quite a young man at the settlement of the town. He was married April 2, 1639, to Joane Hucker, the second recorded marriage in Cohannet. He was admitted a freeman in 1656, but strangely his name is not on the military list of 1643. His first home lot was on the easterly corner of the present Winter Street, fronting on Dear Street, and a strip two rods wide was sold to the town for the town Way, then called Hoar's Lane, since Winter Street.

He was chosen constable in 1661, in 1662 one of the surveyors, and in 1664 a deputy to the General Court. From that time until 1690 there were but two or three years that he was not in office as a deputy or selectman, and often holding both offices the same year. No man in the town seems to have been more constantly trusted by his fellow townsmen with the responsibilities of public office.

He died in 1691, leaving a will, in which he mention his sons Thomas, Jonathan, and Joseph, a deceased son, and Nathan Thare, Jr., who was the son probably of a deceased daughter."

William Harvey, first of Plymouth, became one of the first purchasersof Taunton, and married Joanna Huckin, or Joane Hucker, in Cohannet, April 2, 1639. He lived on the north side of Cohannet street, between the training field and Mill River. He removed to Boston and resided there from about 1641 to 1646. then returned to Taunton, and was several times chosen selectman and a member of the General Court at Plymouth, and also served in other town offices, as constable in 1661 and surveyor in 1662. He was a large landholder,and prominent in his time. It was at Mr. Harvey's house in Taunton that Governor Prince, Major Winslow, Captain Thomas Southworth and Mr. Constant Southworth met in 1668, and completed the sale of
Taunton North Purchase to Taunton men. His will was proved in 1691. His wife died at an earlier date.
He had children, viz.:
(1) Thomas, born in 1642, who married Elizabeth Willis, daughter of Deacon John Willis of Bridgewater, December 10, 1679. He died
about 1726-27.
(2) Jonathan, who died unmarried about 1690.
(3) Joseph, born in Boston, October 8, 1645, who married Esther. He died before 1690.
(4) Experience, born in Boston, January 4, 1644, who marriedThomas Harvey (probably her cousin), of Taunton.

In papers of the Illinois Adjutant General's Office, we find Henry
Bodenhamer described as 6' 1" tall, with light hair, grey eyes, and a
light complexion. He was enrolled on 11 Aug 1862 at Brooklyn, Illinois,
by Captain Blackburn for a term of three years. He was mustered in 1 Sep
1862 at Quincy, Illinois, by Capt Ewing.
He was a member of Company A of the 78th Illinois Infantry. This
regiment was first assigned on 19 Sep 1862, to guard prisoners in
Louisville, Kentucky, and then on 5 Oct to protect the railroad from
Elizabethtown to New Haven, Kentucky. On 26 Dec, John Morgan's guerillas
captured Companies B and C, and they were to spend more than nine months
under guard in St. Louis.
In early Feb 1863, the regiment traveled to Nashville, Tennessee via
the Cumberland River. On the 3rd, although they saw no action
themselves, their arrival at Fort Donnelson caused the withdrawal of
Confederate forces under Forrest and Wheeler, who otherwise seemed likely
to defeat the Union forces there. On the 12th, the 78th marched to
Franklin, Tennessee, where it remained four months, its first chance to
On 23 Jun, they marched to Murfreesboro, and on the 28th they
continued south, reaching Shelbyville, Tennessee on 1 Jul. From 6 to 19
Sep, they moved south past Lookout Mountain, through Rossville and
Ringgold, Georgia, and then back to Rossville, skirmishing all the way.
Their first major battle came at Chickamunga on the 20th and 21st,
where they suffered heavy losses in a charge on Longstreet's corps.
October, November, and December were spent tracking back and forth across
southeastern Tennessee, maintaining supply lines and skirmishing. They
wintered at Rossville. Their first action in 1864 came in May, with the
beginning of the Atlanta campaign. They were at Buzzard's Roost, then
Resaca, Rome, and New Hope Church. They suffered serious losses in a
failed assault on earthworks at Kenesaw on 27 Jun. July 17 found them
engaged at Peach Tree Creek, and by the 28th they were working their way
around Atlanta.
On 1 Sep, they accomplished the unusual by capturing trenches at
Jonesboro, with men and equipment; Clay Bodenhamer was reported wounded
on this day. Atlanta fell into Union hands on the 2nd. On the 29th, the
regiment traveled by train to Athens, Alabama, and then marched to
Florence, where they overtook Forrest. They were transported to
Chattanooga, and from there they once again marched through Gaylesville,
Rome, and Kingston, reaching Atlanta on 16 Nov. This time they continued
south and east, through Covington, Milledgeville, Sandersville, and
Louisville. They completed their march to the sea by taking Savannah on
21 Dec. With this they had managed to divide the Confederacy into two
unconnected parts. On 20 Jan 1865, they broke camp at Savannah and
started north, through Barnwell, Lexington, and Winnsboro, South
Carolina, destroying railways and other property as they went. By 11 Mar,
they had reached Fayetteville, North Carolina.
They encountered heavy fighting on the 19th at Bentonville, being for
a while entirely encircled by the enemy. Following this fight they
camped near Goldsboro. When the war ended on 26 Apr, they were encamped
at Raleigh, where they had been since the 10th. They then marched
through Richmond, Virginia, and reached Washington on 19 May. On the
24th, they took part in the Grand Review. They were mustered out on 7
Jun and transported to Chicago, where they received their pay on the
Of the original 862 recruits, only 396 reamained to make the trip
from Washington to Chicago. Ninety six had died on the field, 24 in
Confederate prisons, and 77 in hospitals. An additional two hundred or
so were lost to injuries.
After the war, Clay Bodenhamer returned to Schuyler County, until
about 1878, when he moved to Kansas. They had not been in Kansas many
years when the
family of an uncle was murdered, and a son of the family sent to prison.
The shock of this event undid Clay, and he was admitted to the insane
assylum at Osawatomie, Kansas. He remained there until his death, and
because the family was too poor to bring the body back home, he was
buried at the assylum.
When she applied for a pension based on his service, Jane Bodenhamer
stated that he, "while in said service & line of duty contracted severe
debility and heart disease. The same being super[?]nced & brought on
from impure vacination which continued to affect his left side, that he
died from these causes." 
Bodenhamer, Henry Clay (I22818)

In the census of 1860, he was listed as being eight years old. In 1889, he was living in Saratoga, California; in 1904 was living in California, and in 1916 in Campbell, California these two cities are in San Mateo County.

James went to California as a young man with his brother, George. Both of them taught school, but George later went to Nebraska. James married Ellen Brown when he was about 23 years old. James and his wife had 11 children. They were baby, baby 2, Bessie, Sarah (Lesuer), Mary Agnes, Margaret, Frances (Swane), Vera Brown (Rorke), John Brown, Winifred Brown (Burke), And James Brown.

In the early 1600s, many English men and women began to question some
of the teachings of the Church of England that had been founded by
Henry VIII in the previous century. Some of these individuals remained
members of the church but tried to "purify" it from within, and were
called "Puritans". One group of Puritans founded MA Bay Colony at
Boston in 1630.
More radical individuals believed that the church was too contaminated
by "error" to be salvaged, and these individuals separated from the
church. The so-called "Separatists" were persecuted by the monarchy
and to a lesser degree by the Puritans, and a few congregations of
Separatists fled to Holland, where the Separatists' religious views
were tolerated. Francis Cooke arrived in Holland as early as 1603, and
he was or became a member of the congregation of Clyfton/Robinson
Separatists who came from Scrooby, England to Leyden, Holland.
Francis' spouse Hester Mahieu was a French Huguenot (that is, a French
Protestant). Her mother was Jennie le Mahieu and her father may have
been Jacques Mahieu.
Although the Separatists were able to worship freely in Holland, they
found that it was very difficult to make a living there. (Most of the
Separatists had been farmers in England, and they had to learn new but
lower paying job skills in urban Holland. For example, Francis became
a woolcomber.) The Separatists also discovered that their children
were slowly slipping away from the Separatist faith in easy going
Holland, and in fact were becoming more Dutch than English.
Accordingly, the Clyfton/Robinson Separatists entered into an
agreement with a group of "Adventurers" (venture capitalists, really)
in England pursuant to which the Adventurers would pay for the passage
of some of the Separatists to America in return for a certain
percentage of the fruits of their labors. The Adventurers also
financed the passage of a number of passengers who came to America for
purely economic reasons and who were called the "Strangers" by the
Separatists. Francis Cooke and his son John came to America with the
first group of Separatists on the Mayflower in 1620. Francis Cooke was
a signatory to the Mayflower Compact, which first established the
principles of democratic government in America. Congregationalist
churches evolved from the Separatist congregations that came to
Either by accident or design, the Mayflower did not land as intended
at Jamestown, VA Colony but instead arrived at Cape Cod in November.
The Mayflower passengers founded a new colony at Plymouth. Francis and
John both survived the first winter in which almost half of the
passengers perished. 
Cooke, Francis (I2357)

In the year of Our Lord 966, the first Polish King, Mieszko I, embraced Christianity, forsaking the Pagan Gods of his ancestors and placing the protection of his kingdom under the shield of the Holy Roman Empire. Mieszko I is regarded as the first official King of Poland, and the founder of the dynastic Piast kings.

The Polish Baptism of 966 came about as a result of the concerns of Mieszko, or Mieczyslaw I, chief of the Polanie, raised by the establishment of the German Empire of Otto I (962). He decided to marry Dobrava, the daughter of Boleslav I of Bohemia, and accepted Christianity for himself and his people, thus preserving their independence. In 1000, at the Congress of Gniezno an independent Polish Church organisation was set up with the agreement of Otto III, but formed according to the Czech, rather than German, system. Thus the Polish Church could turn directly to Rome, and the Pope, for protection and would not fall under the influence of the Germans.
