AMERICAN ANCESTRY. 



THE purpose of this work is, principally, to register in a convenient and simple form 
the pedigree of any one person, and thus record for all time many important facts in 
the history of families which would otherwise be lost. Another primary object is to publish 
here the ancestry of a person as complete as it is known, as a means of obtaining additional 
information regarding it. It is also designed to be a convenient work of reference, to show 
the origin of the various American families. However indifferent some may affect to be 
regarding this question of ancestry, those who have a good pedigree will usually have a 
natural pride in it. Many lineages must of necessity contain nothing but simple records 
of uneventful generations, but they will preserve facts of great interest to descendants which 
would otherwise in many cases be lost in the history of a family. The plan of the work is 
somewhat similar in idea to the well-known linglish works, but altered to suit the conditions 
of American society, and in detail is as follows: 

The surname or family name is given first, with the given name, residence, birthplace, 
and date of birth. This is followed by remarks of a brief biographical character, giving the 
principal events in the individual's life, such as occupation, college degrees if any, author- 
ship, public service, experiences, and if married, date, wife's name and parentage, with 
remarks relating to her ancestry. If the individual whose lineage is given had brothers 
the same facts may be stated respecting each of them, in order of their birth, commencing with 
the eldest. This completes the first generation in tracing back the lineage. Next is given 
the father's name, followed by same class of facts, and so continued back in male line as far 
as can be traced. The name of son, father, grandfather, etc., in direct male line are printed 
in black type. As the abbreviations are all of the most ordinary kind, it is unnecessary to 
mention them here.

the Ritter family in Maryland was Elias 
Ritter who settled on the western shore of 
the province in 1650. He was a native of 
Budingen, Hesse Darmstadt, Germany, 
where it is said he possessed an estate cov- 
ering twenty-four square miles of land, em- 
bracing three towns within its bounds. 
Budingen, the main town, was fortified, and 
contained the " Ritter castle," the walls of 
which were still standing in 1848. The 
family furnished men and munitions to the 
Protestant cause during the " Thirty Years 
War." and at the close of that struggle was 
sent into exile and their property confis- 
cated. Elias Ritter went to England dur- 
ing the protectorate of Oliver Cromwell, 
there joined one of the expeditions sent by

Lord Baltimore to Maryland, and settled 
in the western part of Anne Arundel 
county. At the time of the formation of 
Frederick county the family was located on 
the banks of the Monocacy river. The 
names of the principal members of the 
family at that time were Elias, John, Wm., 
Tobias, Michael and Louis. John, a son 
of the founder of the family, assisted Wm. 
Penn in surveyiug the province of Pennsyl- 
vania in 1682, for which service he received 
5,000 acres of land in Berks co. Pa, A 
descendant of this Ritter occupied a seat 
in the 28th and 29th Congresses. Wm. 
and Elias Ritter were members of Captain 
William Keeport's company, Strieker's 
battalion, Maryland line, 1776. The Ritter 
family came into prominence in the twelfth 
century for the part taken in the Crusades; 
and for services rendered at that time a 
tract of land at and around Budingen, 
Hesse Darmstadt, Germany, was granted 
the family. It is believed the *' Ritter 
Castle " at Budingen was built early in the 
thirteenth century. A member of the 
family in 1848 saw the records of the family 
which had been handed down through a 
number of generations, giving a history of 
the family prior to and during the " Thirty 
Years War." Every effort has been made 
to trace this particular history, but so far 
has failed. A relative in Philadelphia saw 
it just before the late war, but no one 
knows anything of it now. The written 
history of the family during the seven- 
teenth and eighteenth centuries was de- 
stroyed by fire in May, 1848. The arms of 
the Ritter family are thus described: Parted 
per bend or, between two fleur de lys, the 
first argent the second azure. Helmet 
front faced and crowned or: Crest: a demi- 
man issuing out of the helmet, holding in 
his dexter hand a fleur de lys argent. The 
bend in arms indicate the belt of a knight. 
The Crest indicates that the bearer of the 
arms in some of the wars captured many 
prisoners who were ransomed. " Or " 
means gold, and is an emblem of great 
worth. " Argent " signifies silver and 
issued in arms as an emblem of purity. 
" Azure " means blue and is an emblem of 



truth and constancy. Ritter defined in 
Latin is Miles; in French, Chevalier; in 
English, Knight; in German, Ritter.

son. Elbert and Marten Adriaense were 
the sons of Adriaen Reyerse of Flatbush 
L. I. who with his brother Marten Reyerse 
came from Amsterdam. The history of 
this family strikingly exhibits the early 
(Dutch) habit of changing names. 
Reyerse, itself no surname but a patro- 
nymic, was retained by the descendants of 
Marten and who now bear the name of 
Ryerson. Of the two brothers, Elbert 
settled at Flushing and his posterity there, 
in Dutchess county and elsewhere, com- 
pose the Adriance family. Marten (junior) 
remained in Flatbush and his sons took 
the patronymic Martense and became the 
progenitors of the Martence family. (An- 
nals of Newtown, p. 386.) [The name is 
really a very old one and was originally 
spelt Reyertzoon, shortened in the Dutch 
fashion to Reyerz, hence in Canada we 
have to-day two spellings. Those de- 
scended from Samuel call themselves 
Ryerse, and those whose ancestor was 
Joseph, Ryerson. One Willem Reyerzoon 
was burgomaster of Amsterdam in 1390; 
Claes Symon Reyerzoon burgomaster, 



1414; Willem, again, 1418; and so on until 
1585, when the name disappears from the 
records of Amsterdam. They took an 
active part in the expulsion of the Spanish 
from Holland, two of them were banished 
by the Spaniards for heresy and one, Al- 
bert Reyerzoon was beheaded with two 
other burgers for the same offense on

The family of Waller, one of the most 
ancient and distinguished among the Eng- 
lish gentry, was founded by Alnred de 
Waller, a Norman, who settled in the 
county of Kent and died in 1183. From 
him descended the Walkrs of that and 
other countries. Richard Waller of 
Groombridge, Kent, distinguished himself 
very highly at the battle of Agincourt, 
where he took prisoner the French prince, 
the Duke of Orleans; amd Henry V of 
England, in honor of his services, added 
to the ancient arms of the family (which 
were " sable three walnut leaves or, be- 
tween two bendiets ar "), the crest " an 
oak tree proper, on the sinister side an 
escutcheon pendant, charged with the 
arms of France (three fleurs de lis) with a 
label of three points," and the motto, 
" Haec fructus virtutis." Among the 
other distinguished men of the family were 
the parliamentary generals Sir William 
and Sir Hardress Waller, who were of the 
Kentish branch, and Edmund Waller, the 
poet, who was of the Wallers of Beacons- 
field, Buckinghamshire, sprung from a 
young son of the Groombridge family. 
John Waller, second son of George Waller 
of Groombridge, had a son Robert of 

Beaconsfield, who married Elizabeth 

and died in 1558, leaving issue: i, Francis 
(will dated 1549), married Anne ; ii, 



Thomas; iii, Edward, married 



Cecil, 



and had a son Robert, who married Anne 
Hamden (sister of John Hamden) and

old at his father's death; iv, Ralph, who 
had a son Francis alive 1549; v, daugihter,

Gresham; v.ii, son, married 



Smith. Edmund Waller, the poet, first 
married Anne Banks; second wife Miss 
Breese, ishe was the mother of five sons 
and six daughters. The first to whom the 
Virginia family can be directly traced was 
John Waller, M. D., born 1617 (a grand- 
son of the poet), a prominent citizen of 
Newport Paganel, Buckinghamshire. He 
married Mary Key and emigrated from 
England to Virginia 1635, and was alive in 
1688, with the 'following issue by his wife 
Mary Key: i, Leonard; ii, William; iii, 
John; iv, Mary; v, Thomas; vi, Steven; 
vii, Benjamin; viii, Edmund, M. D., a 
senior fellow of Saint John's college, 
Cambridge, where he died in 1745; Tx, 
James; x, Jemima. Col. John Waller,

their names that he and his sons used 
during life in their deeds and other im- 
portant papers), was a member of the 
houes of burgesses 1719, the first clerk of 
Spotsylvania county from 1722 to 1742, and 
was the third son of the English emigrant 
John Waller and his wife Mary Key. He 
married Dorothy Ring and lived on his 
estate, " Newport," Spotsylvania co., Va. 
He died 1754. Dorothy this wife born 
1675, died 1759, aged 84; both were buried 
at Newport, Spotsylvania co., their home- 
stead. His children were Miary, Edmund, 
second clerk from 1742 to 1751, William, 
third clerk from 1751 to 1759, John, fourth 
clerk from 1760 to 1774, iv son Thomas, v 
Benjamin, who became the celebrated 
Judge Waller of Williamsburg Va. The 
silver seal of CoJ. John Waller, gentleman, 
is still in existence, though it has passed 
into the possession of a family descended 
from his daughter Mary, and not of the 
Waller name. The 'coat of arms consists 
of a shield, the contour of which is highly

Hquely by a band, on which are three wal- 
nut leaves, one above another. The crest 
is an oak tree, from the branches of which 
is suspended on the right side -a shield on 
which are fieur de lis, representative of the 
arms of France. Mary Waller, the oldest 
ohild and only daughter of Col. John Wal- 
ler, gentleman, married Mr. Zackary

name was Jennings. She oame from Eng- 
land, and one of the heirs to the celebrated 
Jennings estate in England. Col. William 
Waller, third son of Col. John Waller, 
gentleman. He was the third clerk of 
Spotsylvania 'Co., Va. ; born 1714, died

He married Ann . Her family name is 

not given. He appears to have been a man of 
unusual business capacity, and greatly de- 
pended on by his family and by others in 
business matters. His mother Dorothy 
left him in her will, among other things, 
her large silver spoons, a mourning ring 
given her by her husband, a large Bible 
and Common Prayer Book, which shows, 
as is well known, that the old Waller clerk 
belonged to the Church of England, and 
the opening clause of his will indicates 
that he was a man of exemplary piety. He 
willed his seal to his eldest son, and wishes 
it to descend in right line forever. When 
this seal is applied to red wax there ap- 
pears the Waller coat of arms, crest and 
motto, " Haec fruotus virtutis." He also 
says in his will " he wishes his brother 
Benjamin Waller of Williamsburg to set- 
tle his account with our brother Edmund."

DUEL, WILLIAM DAVOL; wife's 
name unknown, although several 
times mentioned. Nothing has been dis- 
covered so far to indicate whence he emi- 
grated. The name is doubtless Norman- 
French, but given names of children is 
an indication that this family had been so 
long in England that their French given 
names had ceased to be used. The first 
record of him so far is when he applied for 
land in Duxbury Mass. Aug. 3, 1640 (see 
Duxbury hist.). At Braintree a son was

m. Mehitable Whitehead, b. , d. Mar. 

12, 1812. There is mentioned in the same 
irecord with the above three children the 
death of a Noe Duel Mar. 8, 1797, and a 
Jacob Duel d. 1754, who we suppose were 
also children of Wm.* Apphia probably d. 
unm., as she signed herself spinster in the 
receipt she gave her brother William 
Davol for " her portion of her father's es- 
tate (£15) and other legacies left her by 
her father's last will and testament." This 
receipt is dated Sep. 6, 1760, showing that 
her iather Wm. died before that date. In 
Feb. 5, 1750 Wm. Davell was appointed 
guardian over William Hudleston, aged 
14, at Taunton Mass. by George Leonard, 
judge of the probate of wills in the co. of 
Bristol. This Wm. was probably Wm.* 
In 1777 Wm. Due^ was constable at Dart- 
mouth Miass. It is probable that Wm. 
Divel" was in Dartmouth as late as Jan. 
27> 1783, as there was a receipt given that 
date for an account owed Bereah Goddard 
signed by Henry Howland, Exec. J. C. 
North says he had knowledge of the first 
three children of Wm.* from sources in 
Dutchess CO. N. Y. There was a Wm. 
Duel sold land in Stanford, Dutchess co. 
N. Y. in 1806, and it is believed that he 
was Wm. Duel,** as Ezra Duel, son of 
Wm.,° was from Dutchess co. N. Y. to 
Hebron N. Y., where he (Ezra) appears as 
early as Oct. 21, 1791. Of Jonathan Duel' 
(Wm.,* Jonathan,* Jonathan,' Wm.*) noth- 
ing is known for certain, but there was a 
Jonathan Duel who lived in Saratoga N. 
Y. and who d. at the age of 104 years, who 
may have been identical with him. His 
children, in part at least, were Jonathan, 
Gideon, Adosha, Seth, Bulah and Reuben. 
The children of Wm. Duel" (Wm.,* Jona- 
than,* Jonathan," Wm.*) were: i Levi, 2 

Richard, 3 Ruth, b. , d. Mar. 20, 1840, 

m. Joseph Tanner, 4 Bashba, m. 



Tripp, 5 Seth, 6 Jonathan, m. Patience 
Milk, 7 William Jr., 8 Ezra, b. July 21, 



1766, d. Mar. 30, 1844, was twice m.; no 
dates of either marriage have yet been 
found. Ezra's first wife was Deborah 
Stark, b. Apr. 26, 1766, d. Feb. 12, 1826. 
(Deborah Stark was, according to our 
tradition, a cousin of Maj.-Gen. John 
Stark of Bennington fame, but I never 
have been able to trace any relationship to 
that family, although I have learned that 
Archibald Stark, the father of Maj.-Gen. 
John, had two brothers that also came to 
this country at about the same time that 
he did. Their names were John and 
Nathan Stark.) Ezra Duel's second wife 
was Elizabeth Sherman, b. 1794, d. Jan. i, 
1878. She was the widow of Gideon Sher- 
man, b. 1795, d. Oct. 29, 1826, m. to Sher- 
man Oct. 16, 181 5 at Exeter R. I. Her 
maiden name was Dawley and she was a 
native of R. I. By Deborah Stark Ezra 
Duel had 11 children and by Elizabeth 
Sherman i child. Ezra Duel came to 
Hebron N. Y. with <his brother Jonathan 
Duel, whose wife was Patience Milk. 
There are numerous descendants of Jona- 
than now living in Hebron and about ad- 
joining towns. Jonathan d. of small-pox. 
There is no record of him or his wife so 
far as I can learn. In fact, the knowledge 
I (have of the brothers and sisters of Ezra 
Duel came from my gt. -uncle Morgan 
Duel. Ruth Duel, who m. Joseph Tanner, 
came to this town to reside, but her de- 
scendants are scattered. Levi, Seth, Rich- 
ard and William are supposed to have 
settled in Warren and Essex cos. N. Y., 
and I am certain from correspondence I 
have had that a part of them at least did 
so. Ezra Duel' (Wm.,' Wm.,* Jonathan,' 
Jonathan,* Wm.*) had by wife Deborah 
Stark: i Nathan Duel, b. Sep. 7, 1789, d. 
July 18, 1830, m. June 6, 1808 Sarah Whit- 
ney, dau. of Cornelius Whitney and

d. Nov. 26, i860, she was probably born 
in Granville N. Y., as her ifather came at 
the close of the rev. war, she d. in Mexico 
N. Y., the place of Nathan Duel's birth is 
uncertain, the remainder of the children of 
Ezra Duel were b. either at Hebron N. Y.

18, 1756 to the American colonies. His 
army was stationed on the Canada frontier 
and James was at different times at Crown 
Point, Ticonderoga, Niagara and Fort 
Wm. Henry. He was at various times 
under the command of Gen. Johnson, 
Capt. D. Elle and Gen. Putnam. In 1759 
the British forces were divided into 3 
armies. James was assigned to that di- 
vision of the army that was under Gen. 
Wolfe that stormed Quebec. He was 
wounded on the Plains of Abraham by a 
sword cut and carried the scar through 
life. He received his discharge from the 
army Sep. 19, 1766 at New York. From 
N. Y. he went to Wallingford Ct. where 
he met Mehitable the daughter of Thomas 
Merwin and married her (no date of mar- 
riage). Mehitable Merwin was born Jan. 
5, 1744. Besides Mehitable Merwin there 
were three boys born to Thomas Merwin, 
namely, Thomas Jr., Samuel and Stephen. 
Of these boys Thomas Jr. and Stephen 
moved to Lexington N. Y. and raised 
large families. Samuel Merwin was a sea 
captain in the West India trade. During 
the American revolution he went to Ti- 
conderoga, was taken with dysentery and 
died and was buried there unmarried it is 
supposed. By James Swift and Mehitable 
Merwin there were 10 children as follows, 
all born at Wallingford Ct.: i William 
Swift, b. Sep. 28, 1769, d. Sep. i, 1858.

had four sons. They removed to Sheffield 
Mass., where they both d., he Sep. 14, 1870 
and she Mar. 20, 1878. I will give this 
family in full as the family is probably ex- 
tict unless the son George Jr., who went 
to Cal., m. there and left descendants, 
which is doubtful. The first son of George 
Swift and Zada Hollister was b. Oct. 29, 
1816, lived 8 hours. The second child, 
George Swift Jr., was b. May i6, 1819, d.

longed to the Campbell clan, their 
home was in the highlands of Scotland. 
They took a prominent part in the early

from 1865 to 1869, he was also County 
Judge. This was during a time when, in 
addition to the duties now devolved upon 
county judges of Illinois, they were re- 
quired to discharge the duties now per- 
formed by the Board of Supervisors. As 
a lawyer he had few superiors in the State. 
As a counselor he was safe and reliable. 
He practiced extensively in the Supreme 
Court, and was never known to lose 
case in that court. He was one of the 
charter members of the Edwardsville 
Lodge A. F. and A. M. Judge *Matthew 
Gillespie was an able and efficient public 
officer. In 1839 lie was elected judge of 
probate, which office he honorably filled 



for four years. Was enrolling and en- 
grossing clerk in the State Senate in 1839 
and '40; was appointed by Gen. Taylor 
Register of the Land Office in 1849, which 
office he held for four years. He was an 
old and intimate acquaintance of Presi- 
dent Lincoln. The house of Mr. Gillespie, 
when Mr. Lincoln was stopping at Ed- 
wardsville, was one of the latter's favorite 
places of " breaking bread," and where the 
family and friends enjoyed the rare treat 
of listening to the fun-loving anecdotes so 
peculiar to Mr. Lincoln. Judge ^Joseph, 
son of 'David (^Matthew and ^James) and 
Sarah (dau. of 'Joseph (only son of 
^David) and Sarah Breakey Gillespie) was 
born in New York City Aug. 22, 1809. In 
those days schools were the exception. 
His mother, however, who was well in- 
formed and extremely fond of reading, in 
a measure supplied the want of suitable 
opportunities. She gave her sons all the 
instruction she could impart, procured the 
best reading matter that the county af- 
forded, and by her endeavors awakened in 
them a thirst for knowledge. She gave 
them her views upon what they had read 
which strengthened their recollection and 
created habits of reflection; he was raised 
on a farm. In 1831 he went to Edwards- 
ville. Read law with the Hon. Cyrus Ed- 
wards. He lived in the family of Mr. 
Edwards for two years, and in that time 
read law under his direction and tuition. 
During that time the Black Hawk War 
broke out, he volunteered and made the 
campaign of 1831 and 1832. About this 
time he was ready to commence the prac- 
tice of his profession, he was elected pro- 
bate judge of the county, which position 
he held for two years. In 1840 he was 
elected on the Whig ticket to represent 
Madison county in the State Legislature. 
After his return he again went to the prac- 
tice of his profession. In 1847 he was 
elected a member of the State Senate, in 
which body he continued until 1857. In 
i86t he was elected to the office of Judge 
of the Twenty-fourth Judicial Circuit of 
Tlliniois. and occupied the position for 
twelve years. He was united in marriage
