[NI0087] Mayor of Olney Il (years?)

[NI0091] His first wife, Ella Craft, had one child, Mabel. His second wife, Alta Hill, bore most of his children. William and his brother George lived in Decker township, and were traders. (E.G. they would buy a crop from a farmer, and resell it). William developed stomach cancer and died at the age of 50. He joined the South Freedom church in Decker Twp, and was rather devout in his last years.

Hate to include this, but after he died, Alta claimed that she had always hated him. She moved into Olney, where she had her own home, and did various domestic tasks for other households (housecleaning, canning, ironing, etc.). Her children contributed to her upkeep.

Another nasty little tidbit; William had a fondness for women; his son William Berlin caught him with some local 16 year old neighbor in the family barn.

[NI0099] I haven't been able to track down any documentation that proves this date, but we did find that Mary's son-in-law, Joseph Preston was paying her taxes (researched at the Clay County Historical Society; tax documents upstairs) The land was sold following this death date.

[NI0101] The 1850 Census entry for Margaret contains at least some of Elijah's children from his first marriage, but doesn't contain all of her children. (why?) The youngest Margaret was possibly Mary Margaret with an incorrect age. Hamilton, Mary & Elijah were children from the first marriage.

Aunt Cora was evidently a bit eccentric in her later years, who didn't care much for family connections (at least her own). She was a beautiful woman, and was often likened to Wallis Warfield, the Duchess of York. She had black hair which she wore in a bun, and very fair skin. She left home early, and some people theorized that she was actually embarrassed by the number of siblings in the family. She married Ben London who came from New York City, whose religion was Jewish. (One can only speculate on the trouble she stirred up with that.) They owned a successful women's wear shop in Pierre, SD for many years. Cora became a friend to many of the senators and legislators in LD, and her hobbies included collecting antiques. She died alone, and in spite of overtures from her siblings (namely, Bernice, Marshall & Neil), she never re-established close ties with her own family.

DUNLAP, Alex
DUNLAP, Jam


According to various sources (i.e. FamilySearch.com), Margaret Dunlap was born in 1770, daughter of Robert Dunlap/Dunlop and Mary Gay. She married a William Deniston. Robert was son of Captain Alexander Dunlap, Jr., and Anne McFarland. Alexander was son of Alexander Dunlap, Laird of Dun...(something). This looks a lot like wishful thinking, but it's recorded here for reference purposes.
Robert Dunlap served in the Revolutionary War, and evidently died in battle. (Robert Dunlap was killed at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse during the Revolutionary War. House of Dunlap Website---http://www.ohiowebdesign.com/OHIO/History_Dunlap.html). Ensign Robert Dunlap evidently refused to follow an order to retreat, held his ground, and was overrun by the British. Robert's will lists all of his children, including a child named Margaret. He owned land in Kentucky, which his family moved to some time after his death, which is how we see the marriage of a Margaret Dunlap to William Denison.

There is a book on the Denison family, which states that Margaret, the daughter of Robert, married a William Deniston, and lived in Missouri. I have been unable to find any census records that bear this out.

History of Rush County Indiana
1888
Brant & Fuller
Chicago

Jonathan G. Wright, a farmer and citizen of Orange Township, Rush County, was born February 5, 1846, and is the son of Ephraim and Polly (Buckley) Wright. The father was born in Pennsylvania, February 26, 1818, and was the son of Justice Wright, who was an early settler of Fayette County, Indiana. The father of our subject was a farmer by occupation and a minister by profession. He was a zealous member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and lived to be forty-five years old. He was a progressive man and was universally respected by all who knew him. The mother of our subject was born in York State, May 20, 1808, and was the daughter of Nathan Buckley. She was a widow of John Hardy, when she was married to the father of our subject. Her second marriage was blessed with five children, three sons, and two daughters, viz: Alfred (deceased), Jonathan, Henry, Amanda, and Olive. Our subject was reared on a farm and received a common school education. He has followed farming as his occupation. He had a limited capital to begin life, but by untiring energy and frugality, he has been successful as a farmer, and is a progressive and representative citizen. In 1869, January 24, he was united in marriage with Sarah Selby, daughter of Harrison Selby. She was born in Rush County, Indiana, April 3, 1849. Four children, one son and three daughters, have been born unto the marriage, viz: Drurie, Almy, Estella, and James. Our subject served two years in the Civil War in Company M, One Hundred and Twenty-first Regiment of the Ninth Indiana Cavalry. He is in sympathy with churches and schools, and has aided all laudable public enterprises.

[NI0227] Her death certificate states that she was born in Lawrence county, IL, but this is likely an error, as it also states that she lived in Illinois for 59 years. In that case, she came to Illinois in 1852

Death certificate lists parents as Wm. D.Leech and Martha Marsh Leech

Tuesday morning about 1:30 o'clock, Mrs. John Hardy passed away after several weeks illness. She had been seriously ill but a short time and the many friends of the family were unprepared for the sad news of her death. For many years she had been a sufferer which she bore uncomplainingly and was ready for the messenger when he came.

Martha Ann Leech was born in Hamilton Cty, OH. 8-28-1830, the eldest of William B. and Mary Leech. When a child the parents moved to Rush county, IN, where they made their home for a number of years. In 1852, the family removed to Crawford County, where they settled on the farm now owned by Vincent Dobbins north of this city.


December-18-1855 to John N. B. Hardy. He died months previously. To them were born four daughters, Mrs. Mary Prichard, of St. Louis, and Miss Olive Hardy, who has remained with her parents and card for them in the declining years of their lives. About 22 years ago they remoed from their farm near the Leech homestead, to this place where they spent the remainder of their lives.

She united with the Presbyterian church at Rushville, IN in 1854, and was a charter member of the Union Presbyterian Church.

She leaves four daughters and three sisters, Mrs. H.M. Wagner, Ms. Vincent Dobbins, of this city and Mrs. J. C. Wagy of Richmond Mo., besides a number of relatives and friends.

Funeral services were held from the Presbyterian church Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock, conducted by the paster, Rev. E.M.Williams, and interment made in the City Cemetery.

[NI0272] Noted for being the town drunk, his children were removed from their home and adopted out.

I know that some of them kept in touch with his brother William's children; there is a story that a few of them stopped by the ice cream store owned by Dow and Maude Hudson Higgins.

[NI0276] This Martha is listed in the 1870 census for Harter Twp, Clay Co. IL., in the home of William and Mary Hudson. Her birthplace is Kentucky, and she is 12 years old. Since Mary Hudson was 25 at the time, Martha must not be her daughter, so evidently William Hudson had been married before, and lived in the state of Kentucky. This is consistent with the family stories which said the Wm had come from Kentucky, and while he did live there, he was born in Indiana.

Another note: Margaret A. Aufields (name at death) was also born in Indiana, as was Mary Walding. They may have come from the same geographic area.

Sharon Hillis provided the text of a letter written in behalf of Abraham and Jennie Hillis, releasing them from their church. It was signed by James Magraw, whom I have found listed as a Presbyterian minister. If this is correct, their religion was Presbyterianism, rather than Quaker.

His Bio:
James Magraw, D.D. (1775-1835)
He was born in Bart township, Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, January 1st, 1775. He commenced the study of languages at a classical school near Strasburg, and completed his classical and literary course at Franklin College, Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He studied theology under the Rev. Nathaniel Sample, pastor of the churches of Leacock and Middle Octorara, and was licensed by the Presbytery of New Castle, December 16th, 1801. After spending some time as supply at New London, Chestnut Level, West Nottingham, Fagg's Manor, Little Britain, Chatham, and Deer Creek, and as a missionary in Luzerne county, Pennsylvania, he was ordained and installed pastor of the Church of Lower West Nottingham, Maryland, April 4th, 1804. At this time the church was comparatively feeble, but under his ministry it steadily prospered, and at the time of his death it was a large and flourishing congregation. During his pastorate, about 1810, the Upper West Nottingham Church was organized, and he became its pastor, giving it one third of his time, until 1821. In 1822 he became the pastor, for one third of his time, of the recently organized Church of Charlestown and continued to serve it until his death, which occurrred October 20th, 1835. The church soon afterwards became extinct.
Dr. Magraw was of a kind, genial and sympathetic nature, which had a magnetic influence, in attaching to him friends. He was endowed with intellectual powers far above the ordinary standard. He was emphatically a man of action. His administrative abilities were of a high order. As Superintendent of the West Nottingham Academy, which he was instrumental in establishing he was most efficient.

Per Loy: birth date was 5/10/1848, death was 7/14/1853 (my data taken from tombstone)

[NI0440] There is a broken headstone in Utterback Cemetery for a Son of J. & M.A. Smalley. The legible parts include a death date of August 14 (no year), and an age of 1 year, 3 months. [Source: Cemetery Inscriptions for Richland County]. Since Benjamin F. Smalley is noted in the 1860 census (home of his uncle, Harrison Bunn), this stone must be for John.

Per Loy Jones, John Richard Smalley: birth 5/12/1851, death 8/14/1853

[NI0446] Extract from e-mail
In 1816 William and Rebecca sold 1/2 acre in Princeton, Gibson Co., Ind
Territory to George HUMPHREYS. In 1818, William sold another 1/2 acre to
Oliver Mathewson in Princeton. There is no mention of his wife so it is
presumed that she died in 1818 probably giving birth to their last son,
Thomas.

Sometime between 1818 and 1823, William moved to Lawrence Co (now Richland
Co.).

Per Bureau of Land Management records, he made a purchase January 20, 1827, 83.33 acres (http://www.glorecords.blm.gov)


He purchased 83 acres there and his family was one of the original
families there.

By 1824, William m. again to a 42 year old woman, Susan -. They purchased
38 more acres of Richland property from William LETHCA in that year.

In 1847, William and Susan sold the entire Richland Co. property to their
son, Thomas. This was more than 200 acres and it was near Olney.

In Reply to: Re: Children of Elkanah Lathrop by W. David Baird of 117


I too descend from Elkanah by way of Russell Lathrop. I've been trying to find out who Elkanah married and where he died for a long time. According to the VT 1790 census he had 5 children. I only know the names of three:

Russell, Erastus and Elkanah. Russell married Cynthia Powell in Richford VT. She is a descendant of William Bradford of the Mayflower. Erastus married Delia ____ in VT. All three moved to Indiana. Russell later moved to Illinois. Erastus and Elkanah ended up in Decatur Co. IN.

Elkanah's father was Ezra Lathrop of New London CT. He died in 1754 before Elkanah was born. I have no information what happened to the family after Ezra's death other than what's in the Lo-Lathrop family history. Elkanah's sister Charity moved to VT and married a Galusha. Ezra was married to Charity Perkins Leonard.

Ezra's parents were Samuel and Deborah Crow Lathrop

Samuel was the son of Samuel and Elizabeth Scudder Lathrop.

Samuel was the son of Samuel and Hannah Adgate Lathrop.

Samuel was the son of Rev. John Lathrop.

Any additional information regarding Elkanah and what happened to him would be greatly appreciated!
Sue Lathrop


One posting on the net claims that Elkanah's father died when he was 6 years old.
Email: dedpepl@aol.com
Other: LATHROP/LOTHROP Posted by suellyn lathrop on Tue, 25 Aug 1998 Surnames: Looking for whereabouts of Elkanah Lathrop/Lothrop. Last known residence in 1790 census was Fairfax, Chittenden Co. VT. He was born Nov. 9, 1754 in Norwich CT, son of Ezra and Charity (Perkins) Lathrop. His father died when he was 6. No death information available on his mother. His sister Charity married in Shaftsbury, VT. Other siblings living in VT and NY. Known children of Elkanah: 1. Erastus b. ca. 1776, married 22 Feb. 1800 Fairfax, Franklin Co. VT to Delia Ingalls. Moved to Decatur Co. IN by 1820. 2. Ezra b. 1781, married Margaret (?) when or where? Moved to Decatur Co. IN by 1820. Died there in 1845. 3. Russell b. 1793, Fairfax, Franklin Co. Married 12 Jan. 1815 to Cynthia Powell, Richford, Franklin Co. Daughter of Rowland and Mary (Janes) Powell. Participated in the War of 1812. Moved to IN by 1830's. Did Elkanah have other children? Who did he marry? Claimed to have been a Baptist minister and possibly living in Canada. Will exchange information on known descendants. Thank you.

[NI1071] Mary C. David's marriage to Joshua Smalley is listed in the Richland county marriage books, and there is a Mary C. Smalley buried at Utterback cemetery in Richland county. The death date & age make it impossible for Mary C. to be the daughter of Mary Ann Bunn, so she must have been the daughter of the first wife.

Abram Cotterell was born July 31, 1834, in Hart County, KY., and when an infant his parents took him to now Richland County, and settled in German Township, where he was raised. He enlisted in July, 1861, in Company E, Eleventh Missouri Infantry and served his enlistment of three years. He participated in all the battles in Mississippi, Tennessee, Red River--in all numbering sixteen. Our subject was married in 1864 to Sophia Beckwith, of Crawford County. She died June 16, 1872, aged forty-one. They had four children -- Asa, Aden, Etta and Ella. Mr. Cotterell was next married to Mrs. C. Bryan in the fall of 1872. She was born in 1833, in Canada. They have one son, Omer L., and Mrs. Cotterell has one daughter by her former marriage. On Mr. Cotterell's return from the army he lived on his father-in-law's farm two years, but he now owns a farm of 320 acres, which is improved with the best house in the township. The house cost about $2,000. Mr. Cotterell was Township Collector in 1860.

[NI1189] 1860 Census, Lawrence County, IL lists her birthplace as IN.

[NI1227] Probable error in the Cemetery Inscription book; the census consistently shows that Wilson was born in the 1820 timeframe. By the 1870 census, Samantha was living alone, so it's likely that the book death date of 1879 is off by 10 years.

11 Jabez (Jacob2, John1) was born in Ipswich, Mass., May 15, 1677. He married, first, Hannah Lathrop, June 30, 1698.
She died April 14, 1721. Second, Charity Leonard of Middlebury, Dec. 17, 1722. He died Jan. 15, 1742.

The two brothers were leading men in the affairs of the town and church during their lives; their descendants are still quite
numerous in the region and are also found scattered over a great part of the United States and have continued to take
leading parts in the communities where they dwell.

The children of Jabez and Hannah (Lathrop) Perkins were:

45 Jabez, b. June 3, 1699; d. April 27, 1739.
46 Hannah, b. 1701; d. 1745; m. Joshua Huntington.
47 Elizabeth, b. 1703.
48 Mary, b.
49 Jacob, b. May 22, 1709; m. Jemima Leonard.
50 Lucy, b. 1709.
51 Luke (perhaps).
52 Judith, b. 1714.
The child of Jabez and Charity (Leonard) Perkins was:

William F. Musgrove. The gentleman whose name heads this sketch is one of the oldest settlers in Richland County, coming here with his parents in 1820. He was born July 13, 1816, in Jefferson County, Ky., and when he was about two years old his parents brought him to Lawrence County, Ind., and two years later removed to Lawrence County, Ill., and settled on what is known as the Stringtown Prairie. Here William was reared, and when a boy, drove team from Louisville, K., and Evansville, Ind., for John C. Riley, of Lawrenceville, Ill., working for him in the was for about five years. He afterward teamed for Steward about tow years, and since that time he has been engaged in farming. In about 1838 he entered forty acres of land, adding from time to time by purchasing as he was able to do so, until he now owns 300 acres, 160 acres of which he has under improvement. Files in the early time were so numerous, that on riding a horse across the prairie, he would drop instantly and roll; the rider would hurriedly dismount, and as the horse would rise, he would as quickly remount and proceed a short distance, when the horse would again fall, continuing in this way to the end of the journey. Wheat was hauled to Evansville at 37 1/2 cents a bushel, and pork sold at $1.50 per 100 pounds. A good cow could be bought at that time for $6.00. Mr. Musgrove has been Township Commissioner and School Treasurer. He also packed the mails from Mount Carmel to Lawrenceville, Stringtown, St. Marie, Newton, and to Greenup in Cumberland County. He was about two years engaged in this work. He was married in 1839 to Martha Bullard, of Illinois; Mrs. M. died in July, 1854, aged thirty-eight years. Six children blessed this union, five sons and one daughter. He was next married January 22, 1855 to Mrs. Sophia Burnell, daughter of Benjamin Sumner, in honor of whom the town of Sumner was named. She was born July 21, 1826. They have four children, two sons and two daughters. His son, John B., served in the late war.

Lawrence County history presents many pleasing records of the deeds, not of those who have become known to the nation at large, but whose lives have been spent in performing the quiet duties at hand. These men have not been called upon to face great hosts on a battle field, but they have done their duty as private citizens, and ever labored for the public good, setting an excellent example whenever circumstances demanded. Peter W. Shick beongs to one of the old and substantial families of Lukin Township, where he lives, and was born February 13, 1847, a son of John V Shick, now deceased, who was born in Brown County, OH, October 22, 1816.

John V. Shick was a son of John and Mary (Vandament) Shick, a farmer of Lukin township, also born in Ohio. He was a soldier in the Black Hawk War, and was interested in the land he passed through. Having married in Ohio, he brought his family to Lawrence County and resided upon and developed the eighty acres he obtained from the government.

In young manhood, John V. Shick worked on a flatboat, descending the Mississippi to New Orleans, but came to Lawrence County in 1836, and secure land in Lukin Township, entering 160 acres of land, on which he built a log cabin, where he and his brother Daniel lived. He afterwards entered land in Lukin Township. On February 5, 1845, John V. Shick married Elizabeth Mann, who was born in New Jersey, March 10, 1824, a daughter of John Mann, a pioneer of Dennison Township. Mr. Shick added to his holdings until he owned 373 acres, all of which he improved. He and his wife had twelve children: Francis J., Peter W., Mary E. (deceased), John Henry (deceased), David L., Joseph L. (deceased), Amanda J. (deceased), Sarah A., Quincy C., Hannibal H. and Exima E. (deceased), all born and reared in Lukin Township.

In 1861, John V. Shick enlisted in the Sixty-fourth Illinois Volunteers (the "Yates Sharpshooters") and served until the close of the war. His son Francis was in the Sixty-first Illinois Volunteer Infantry. A Republican from the formation of the party until his death, Mr. Shick was earnest in its support. Prior to that he had been a Whig. He was a member of the Christian Church, and died firm in its faith, March 30, 1881.

Peter W. Shick attended the district schools of his locality, and was brought up on the farm. He taught school two winters in Christy Township. On May 30, 1870, he married Jane C. Whitmer, who was born in Perry County, Ohio, September 5, 1847, daughter of Issac Whitmer, and Ohio farmer and school teacher, who enlisted during the Civil War and died of typhoid fever six weeks after his enlistment. While still in Ohio, he widow married D. A. Westall, a blacksmith of Sumner, IL. Mrs. Shick was about thirteen years of age when she was brought to Lawrence County, and she later taught school for several years in Christy township. After marriage, they located at Hadley, IL, and there Mr. Shick opened a general store, which he conducted for two years. In February 1872, he sold his store and moved to his present farm, now owning 209 acres, of which he has cleared 80 acres, and made all of the present improvements upon it. He has raised a great deal of stock, and been successful in all his undertakings.

Mr. and Mrs. Shick have become the parents of eight children: Ellis O., Florence, John C., Daisy P., Ira W., Ralph O., Ludia Elsie and Ida May, all born on the present farm, with the exception of the eldest, who was born at Hadley. Mr. Shick is a stanch Republican, a very intelligent and progressive man, and well liked in his community.

[NI1544] Genealogies of the Stranahan, Josselyn, Fitch and Dow Families in North America, Page 51

"(Rev.) JAMES FITCH, in whom we are more particularly interested, was born at Bocking, County of Essex, England, on the 24th of December, 1622, and was consequently in his sixteenth year when he accompanied his mother and brothers to this country, in 1638. After a long and thorough course of preparation for the ministry, under the Revs. Hooker and Stone, of Hartford, he was ordained, in 1646, as pastor of the Church at Saybrooke, Conn. Here he remained until 1660, when he decided with the greater portion of his congregation, to remove to the new settlement at Norwich. He labored there faithfully, as the pastor of the church which was gathered anew, until 1696, when he became disabled from further active service, by a stroke of the palsy. The Town evidenced its appreciation of his character and services by voting to him, for several successive years, a continuance of a portion of his salary, although he was a large landholder in Norwich, as well as in the towns of Lebanon and Windham. In 1702, he retired to Lebanon, where several of his children had settled, and where he died. "
