The Find Ley Family 

The collection of the records for this genealogy has 
been done as a hobby for over twenty years and it has been 
interesting and a pleasure. I have received so many inter- 
esting letters along with the records. When I started col- 
lecting records I had no idea that it would become a geneal- 
ogy. After I had received so much valuable genealogical in- 
formation and history from the descendants, county records, 
wills, deeds, cemetery records, histories, military service 
records and census records, I decided that it should be 
printed so that it would be preserved for the use of all who 
may ba interested. I have also included addresses. 

With permission, I have included the Findley ancestry 
back to the year 1236 from "Torrence and Allied Families". 
I learned that a few of the descendants had started keeping 
the Findley records many, many years ago and never completed 
them, 1 was fortunate in being able to use these early re- 
cords, without which I may not have been so successful. 

No doubt, there will be some errors in a genealogy of 
this size. I have been able to verify some records, espec- 
ially dates, which have been sent to me incorrectly. Some 
few descendants to whom I have written for records did not 
send them, this is regrettable, but I have done my best. It 
is hoped that the present generation and those to come will 
continue with each family record. There are some lines which 
are not continued and all record of them seems to be lost. I 
will welcome any further information or clues to their location, 

I want to express my sincere gratitude to all of those 
who have assisted me.

Attention: Librarian ... ^ 

Under separate cover, I am mailing you a copy 
of my Fowler Genealogy ( John Fowler, 1799-1891) published in 
1974, as a gift. John Fowler is my husband's ancestor. There 
are copies of this book in the following libraries: D. A. R. 
Library, Washington, D. C. ; ; Indiana State Library, Indianapolis, 
Indiana and the Kansas State Historical Society Library in Topeka, 
Kansas. 

You have copies of two of my other books , 
Willicim Brown Genealogy and Findley Genealogy (David Findley, 
1762-1849) in your library. These were gifts from Mrs. Harold 
Anderson. 

Concerning the Fiiidley. Genealogy, after I had 
mailed all of the books, I discovered that 1 had copied or failed 
to copy one-half line, I should say, and I am sending you the 
correction. This early Findley record was copied from "Torrance 
& Allied Families" by Robert M. Torrance in 1933. On page 7 in 
paragraph 12, James Finley, in my book, please paste this correction 
where it belongs. Note on page 3 that I have: James Finley, bapt. 
May 16, 1629, at St. Andrew's Church, Inchervie, Fif'i, Scotland, 
which is correct. I mailed ftes, Anderson this correction shortly 
after she bought the book from me, but just in case that you may 
not have received it from her, I am mailing one to you, 

I had the pleasure of working in your great 
library three years ago for a few days Tvhilo I was visiting my 
aunt who is a LDS member. 

I might add that I also had the Hughes Genealogy 
(Ellis Hughes, 1776-1850) published in 1970 and that t here =; copies 
of it in the Indiana State Library, Indianapolis, Indiana, and in 
the D. A. R. Library in Washington, D. C. This book is about the 
size of the Findley and the Brown Genealogies, I should have had 
a few more copies printed.

FINDLEYS 

The name FINDLEY is quite common in the colonial history 
of our country. Early in the 18th century there were settlers 
in Virginia and Pennsylvania bearing the name. In Pennsylvania, 
they were associated with the Scotts, Sneers, Galbraiths, 
Mitchells, Westbays and other oioneer families. The name has 
a variety of soellings: Findlev, Findlay and Finley, even in 
the same families, however, the spelling Findlev is used by 
all the descendants of David and Jane (Mitchell; Find ley. All 
of them anpear to have come from a common stock in Scotland 
and the North of Ireland. The Findleys were descendants of 
one of the old signers of the "Solemn League and Covenant of 
Scotland" and another ancestor bore a prominent part in the 
memorable siege of Londonderry. Ref: Biog. of Wm. Findley (1741- 
1821), "Colonial and Revolutionary Families of America" by 
Jordan, Pub. 1911, page 678. This Wm. Findley was a half- 
brother of our David Findley (1762-1849). They were a religious 
people of the Presbyterian faith and gave themselves to the 
founding and maintenance of church, both in Ireland and in the 
wilderness of America, 

Our ancestor, James Finley, bapt. May 16, 1629, at St. 
Andrew's Church, Inchervie, Fife, Scotland, left Scotland be- 
cause of the persecution of Presbyterians, going to Londonderry, 
Ireland, It is recorded that he was the one who changed the 
spelling of his name to FINDLEY because of the large number of 
Finleys in Ireland, William Findley, from whom our branch of 
the family descended, resided in Belfast, County Antrim, Ireland, 
was in the woolen trade in Londonderry and Belfast until 1773 
when, with his family, came to America on the brig "Eagle Wing". 
Some of his sons by a former marriage preceded him to America. 
His son, Hon. William Findley (1741-1821) of Latrobe, Pa., by 
his first wife, Jane Holland Steele, says that, while under his 
father's roof he had the advantage of a larger number of books 
than was possessed by most of his neighbors, books on church 
history and divinity. He also says that his father came over 
to Pennsylvania late in life and was well received, 

William Findley, Sr, , had the following children by his 
first wife, Jane Holland Steele, who died Feb. 21, 1857, in 
Belfast: Archibald, Alexander, John, James, Hon, William, Samuel, 
and Andrew. He married second to Mrs. Martha Drennen, nee 
Dreamer, the widow of Daniel Drennen and mother of three children 
born in Ireland, a son and two daughters, 1758, Rev. Phillip 
Howell Drennen, bom Feb. 26, 1826, a United Presbyterian 
Church minister, was a grandson of Mrs. Martha Drennen Findley. 
To this union were born three children: 

1, Margaret Findley married Matthew Bigger, Westmoreland Co,, 
Pa, (See Bigger records,) 

2, David Findley, (1762-1849), County Antrim, Ireland, married 
Jane Mitchell, April 17, 1787, Westmoreland County, Pa, 

3, Jane Findley married James McConnell, had 8 children. See

J, Ralph Wilson, Morning Sun, lowa , pub, 1956, 



Find Ley Ancestry 

1. Fearchar was chief of a powerful clan known as Clan Fion- 
nladh, a sept of the great confederation, Jlan Chat ton, 
which held large possessions in Strathdie in the Pj^i^h of 
Crothie, in the Braces of Mar, at the head of Aberdeenshire, 

Scotland, in the year 1236. . j ^ j • 

FioAnladh, from which the name Finley is derived is a 
combination of the Gaelic words, Fionn, meaning Fergus, 
and Ladh, meaning boy or child. From this root have come 
the different spellings, such as Finleg, Finlegh, Finley, 
Finlay, Findley and Findlay. All are pure Scotch and id- 
entical in origin. ^ ^ * 
Fearchar is said to have been a lineal descendant ot 
the ancient Thanes of Ross and Moray, of whom the most fam- 
ous was Macbeth. Malcolm II, was King of Scotland from 1005 
to 1034, A. D. His second wife was Aelifu, of whom he had 
three daughters. The youngest of these, Donada, married 
Finlegh, or Finley McRuaidhri, the Earl of Moray, Chief of 
Clan Fionnladh, who ruled over a large portion of northern 
Scotland, including the present Shire of Ross. Their son 
was McBida McFinlay, or Macbeth, born circa 1005 A. D. who 
became King of Scotland from 1039 to 1056. Macbeth married 
Gruach, a daughter of Bodhe, and the widow of Gilcomgain, 
The succession is carried on by MacBoetha McFinlay, Thane 
of Cromarty, 1060 to 1093, who married Bethoca, daughter of 
Andrew McBrad. Their son, Rory or Ruari McFinlay, was Thane 
of Cromarty in 1152. Their son, Fergus McFinlay, was living 
in Cromarty in 1210. Their son, Eochiod, or Euginius, some- 
times Shaw McDubh, was murdered by Walter Seneschal of Scot- 
land, in 1223 A. D. His son, Fearchar, Chief of Clan Fion- 
nladh, was living in 1236 in Aberdeenshire, and married a 
daughter of Patrick MacDonachadh. (Genealogists have traced 
this family connections through the various kings of Scotland 
and Ireland, to the House of Heremon, but for the ourpose of 
this sketch, a start will be made with Fearchar, and if space 
will permit, the earlier records will be inserted later). 

Fearchar' s descendants settled on the borders of the Shires 
of Perth and Angus. It appears that his large family of sons 
adopted the following names: McFarchar, or Farquharson, McFinlay, 
Finlay and Finlayson. 

Fearchar' s second son, Archibald Fynlay, or Finlay, will 
be the only one mentioned. 

2. Archibald Finlay, distinguished himself in the battle of 
Largs, in Ayrshire, on Oct. 2, 1263, between the Socts and the 
Norwegians, in which the Scots were successful. From this 
Archibald are descended the Finlays of Balchristie, Fife. In 
a charter, dated, Nov. 12, 1314, Archibald Finlay is mentioned 
as occupying one- ha If marcote of land in Rousknot, Perthshire, 
and as having married Margaret, a daughter of William Robertson. 
Children of Archiblad and Margaret Finlay were three. 

3. William Finlay , third child, married Isabell Dempster. He 
is mentioned in the Aberdeen Charter, No. 8, as follows: "Of 
the Prior of Rousknot Abbey concerning purchase of King Robert 
I, of lands of Rousknot and their land in Perthshire." Inquis- 



itlon has been made by WiLllam Flnlay, the Forester, and 
others of the King's tenants-in-chief in Perthshire, and 
confirmed at Dundee, Mar. 16, 1307. The said William Finlay 
married Isabell, daughter of Thomas Dempster, Laird of Murisk, 
and his wife Eleanor Forbes, a niece and co-heir of Viscount 
Forbes. Child of William and Isabel (Dempster) Finlay: 

4. Andrew Finlay is mentioned in a Royal Charter dated August 
3, 1366: "Confirmatory Charter of the Prior of Rousknot, that 
Andrew Finlay son of William Finlay, and Andrew Demoster, the 
uncle of the said Andrew and John Finlay of Cullace, por- 
tioners of Menmur, in Perthshire, confirm the gifts of an 
annual of eight pounds of goods, as tithe of the lands of 
Menmur, Perth, to the Prior and Cannons of Rousknot, given at 
Kennelli, Oct. 8, 1360, confirmed Aug. 1366". "Grant of King 
Robert II, to Andrew Finlay, of certain fees for exercising 
the office of Sheriffdon, Perth, amercements granted to Andrew 
and his heirs to be held as their fees, hereditary, forever, 
confirmed at Kyndrocht, July 9, 1379." Andrew Finlay had mar- 
ried Marjorie McDonald, niece and co-heir of John McDonald, 

of Perth. Children of Andrew and Marjorie (McDonald) Finlay 
were four. 

5. John Finlay , second son, married Eleanor Stewart. John 
Finlay was Bishop of Dumblain in 1406; died in 1445. His title 
was that of Reginald of the Isles, of the whole Thange of 
Glentilt, being three devaches of land for his faithful ser- 
vices, to be held by himself in fee heritage forever for the 
pajnnent of eleven merksmen and the carriage of four horses 
once a year for hunting in the Forest of Bencromby. He mar- 
ried Eleanor, daughter of John Stewart, of Fothergill, Child- 
ren of John and Eleanor (Stewart) Finlay were six. 

6. John Finlay , first child, married Mary MacRae. John Finlay 
is mentioned in a Retour at Logyrate, in the Court of John, 
Earl of Atholl, whereby, on 29, July, 1457, he granted Glen- 
tilt to his son, John Stewart, which formerly belonged to 
Finlay, Tochach (meaning Chief, or Earl), and by which h« vol- 
untarily resigned the Thanage of Glentilt, comprising seven- 
teen townships. On July 29, 1457, John Finlay is served as 
heir to his father, John Le Thane, of Glentilt, in the hands 

of Pepnocrife in Stralhguay. The said John Finlay, son of heir 
of John, Bishop of Dumblain, evidently sold this land, as he 
is represented in the rental books of the Cupar Angus Cist- 
ercian Abbey, as living in the townships of Kethyk, in Cupar 
Grange, Forfashire, 1457-1461, having obtained, on Oct. 10, 
1457, a lease of a one- twelfth portion of the Grange for five 
years. He died in 1461, having married Mary MacRae, who was 
a widow in 1462. As relict of John Finlay, she is described 
on Jan. 20, 1462, as obtaining; from Cuoar Angus Abbey a re- 
newal of her husband's one- twelfth portion for five years, pay- 
ing on entry a tax of five marks. Child of John and Mary 
(MacRae) Finlay: 

7. John Finlay married Joneta Rogers. John Finlay is ment- 
ioned in a Retour as having in 1463, one- sixth portion of 



of Combreyeland at Pentacoast, Forfashire, and he figures in 
different leases up to 1497. He died prior to t 507 , having 
married Jonets Rogers, who, as widow and relict of John Fmlay 
is described on March 9, 1507, as obtaining a lease of a por- 
tion of the lands of Downey, in the Barony of Glenisla. She 
was the daughter of William Rogers, a renter of Cupar Range, 
who, in 1457, had a lease of one- twelfth portion for seven years, 
and the lease was renewed, in 1468, by his son, William Rogers, 
Jr., who died in 1508. His son, William Rogers III, married 
Marjorie Blair, daughter of William Blair, Bailiff of Cupar 
Angus. On May 1, 1542, he obtained from Abbott Donald Campbell 
a life lease of that portion of land leased by his father and 
by his grandfather. William Rogers III appears as Sheriff De- 
puty on April 23, 1544. Children of John and Joneta (Rogers) 
Finlay were two. 

8. Andrew Finlay , second son, married Janet Hay. Andrew Finley 
(The change in spelling from Finlay to Finley is found in var- 
ious documents relating to this family.), according to the re- 
ntal books of Cupar Angus Abbey, leased a one- fourth portion 

of Aughinlyth, at Pentecoast, for five years, and figures in 
different rentals up to 1546. In 1507, he appears as Bailiff 
of Cupar Angus, and in 1542, as Sheriff. In this capacity, he 
was associated with Donald Campbell and David Campbell, the 
grandsons of the Earl of Argyll. There is an Aberdeen Charter 
of Sale, 1491, by Andrew Finley, of Aughinlythe, to John Stewart 
of Fothergill, of the lands of Achnamackmore, and this was fol- 
owed by a notorial instrument taken by John Finley, son and 
heir of the late Andrew Finley, April 27, 1547, of the rights 
and reversions of the lands for twenty pounds payable in one 
day between sunrise and sunset. There is then a precept of 
sasine by Andrew Finley in favor of Neill Stewart, as son and 
heir of Neill Stewart, given at Glentilt, June 4, 1545, in 
presence of John, son of heir of Andrew Finley, and on Aug. 
13, 1501, a Charter of Sale to Eleanore, Countess of Atholl.

died at Aughinlyth, Cupar Angus, prior to 1547, Andrew Finley 
married Janet Hay, a daughter of John Hay, of Erroll, Perthshire, 
a descendant of David De Haya, Sheriff of Forfashire, 1214, A.D. 
and also of William de la Haya, Cup Bearer to Malcolm IV, as 
he styled himself in a Charter in 1172, when he received the 
lands of Erroll in Perthshire. John Hay of Erroll was a great 
grandson of Sir Gilbert Hay, a steadfast adherent of Robert 
Bruce. The Parish Register of Cupar Angus Abbey records the 
baptisms of their children. Children of Andrew and Janet (Hay) 
Finley were five.

DAVID FINDLEY (L762-1S49) 

David Findley was born In Belfast, County Antrim, Ireland, 
in 1762, died in New Concord, Muskin.e;u'n County, Ohio, in 1849. 
He came to America with his father, William Findley, in 1773-4 
and resided for a time in CuTiberland County, Pennsylvania, but 
later crossed the mountains and settled in the "Forks of the 
Yough", in that portion of Westmoreland County which, in 1788, 
was organized as Allegheny County, Here he was a land owner, 
his name being on the tax list of Elizabeth township and in 
1790, he was listed among the heads of families in the census. 

The year of 1782 was a time of unrest along the Western 
Frontier. The country was still at war with Great Britian and 
the Indian allies of the British were making furious attacks 
upon the scattered settlements. Hannastown, the capital of 
Westmoreland, was burned by the Indians, and all along the border 
many settlers with their families were killed. In the campaign 
of this year, the Westmoreland militia was called into service 
and on the roll of its soldiers are the names of David Findley, 
Matthew Mitchell and James Scott. Ref. Penn. Archives. 

In 1806, David Findley, true to the pioneer spirit of his 
people, moved again with his family to Muskingum County, Ohio, 
following the "Zane Trace" and settling in Union township. This 
township was surveyed in 1893 and its first settlers were Wm. 
Hardy, Henry Reasoner, a family by the name of Wilson and David 
Findley. Here David Findley purchased land of Henry Reasoner 
who had entered a tract of land two years before, the southwest 
quarter of section one. 

The first houses in the settlement were built of logs 
and roofed with clapboards held down with weighted poles. 
Judge David Findley, being more prosperous than most of his 
neighbors, covered his house, in 1809, with lap shingles and 
wrought iron nails, the latter being a luxury few could afford, 
the first in the county outside of Zanesville. The first brick 
house built in Union township was that of Judge Findley in New 
Concord in 1828. He had the first apple orchard in the area. 
In 1815,, he bought the John Reasoner grist mill on Salt Creek. 
The first carding and fulling mill in New Concord was built 
by Judge Findley. He laid out the town of New Concord along 
the line of the National Road. The new Concord United Pres- 
byterian Church was originally known as "Crooked Creek Church", 
the first meeting-house being situated about one mile southwest 
of the village of New Concord, It was connected with what was 
then known as the Associate Reform Church. It is said that 
the first Associate Reform Church preaching in this county was 
in Judge Findley' s bam, not far from the nresent residence of 
David Stormant, (1882), Ref: History of Muskingum County, Ohio, 
Pub, 1882 by J. Everhart. 

James Findley first introduced short-horn Durham cattle 
from Kentucky in 1840. In 1852, James Findley and John Patter- 
son built a grist mill at New Concord, near the railroad depot, 
with three run of buhrs. 

Judge Findlev was defeated for U. S. Senator in 1809, but 
was elected Associate Judge in his county from 1813 to 1820; 
in 1828, the village of New Concord was laid out on a portion 
of his farm. On July 9, 1836, citizens met to consider the 



10 

establishment of an academy. Judge Findley was chosen as 
chairman and among the members of the first board of trustees 
was William Findley. This academy became Muskingum College. 

Our ancestor apoears to have been a man of quick temper, 
at times stem and brusque in his manner, but of great kind- 
liness of disposition. It is related of him, that one year 
when there had been a general failure of the harvest, he was 
fortunate in having a good croo of wheat. One day a stranger 
from a distant place came to him to buy seed wheat. Mr. Findley 
asked him if he had the money to pay for his intended purchase. 
The stranger replied that he had and pulled the gold out of 
his pocket. "Then" said Mr. Findley, "go over yonder to my 
neighbor, he will sell you wheat for your money, I am saving 
mine for some poor devil who has no money." 

Mr. Findley was not an abolitionist or a reformer in the 
modern sense. Yet he was highly esteemed for his integrity 
and public spirit; he was one of the men who "won the west", 
laying in the wilderness the foundations of industry, educat- 
ion and religion, upon which have been builded the institutions 
of a Christian community. In politics, he was a Whig.

Excerpt from History of New Concord and Muskingum College, 
Ohio, written by Rev. Wm. A. Findley, grandson of Judge Findley. 

"My Grandfather with his wife and six sons, Matthew, Abel, 
William, John, David and James came to the place now occupied 
by the town and college when it was almost in its original 
state of forest. Clearing soon began, blacksmith shop, coop- 
erage, saw-mill and water grist mill were started and later 
on when grain began to be raised, a distillery was started to 
put into cashable form the surplus grain. Grandfather had taken 
up a very large body of land making large farms for each of his 
sons, reaching from the Guernsey County line on the east, north 
and south of the road to the west, to the county road that leads 
from the main road to the south to the old Crooked Creek Church 
to which they all belonged. The need of a town appeared and 
they laid it out, calling it New Concord, They started stores 
of different kinds. Uncle William was the storekeeper and fin- 
ancial head of the family. Uncle Abel was the distiller. John, 
my father had his farm on the east. The whole country in and 
around New Concord was owned and entered by my Grandfather and 
his sons. One more thing I wish to say here to show that this 
Grandfather of mine had a good level business head on him. When 
the National Government sent her representatives to survey a 
route for a road from Wheeling, West Va. , (The National Road), 
Grandfather exerted enough influence to cause them to adopt 
the present site which the National Turnpike occupies today. 
True, it was a great thing for his large holdings, but it was 
an even greater thing for the entire community, the college, 
and the town, even unto this day."

(1761-1838) is the son of John Findley who was an older half- 
brother of our David Findley (1762-1849). John Findley was 
a son born in 1737 of our William Findley and his first wife,

Our David Findley (1762-1849) did not receive a pension for 
his Revolutionary War services. The following was noted after 
his name in the 1840 census. Union Twp. , Muskingum Co., Ohio: 
"David Findley, 78, served in Revolutionary War but has not 
applied for a pension". I have, personally, checked the pension 
records in the Archives in Washington, D. C. for a pension for 
him and there is none. I found the pension record for the 
other David Findley (1761-1838) and copied it. It gave the 
names of all of his children and their ages.

James Renwick Wilson was born Jan. 7, 1843 In Salt Creek 
township, Muskingum County, Ohio, the 5th of the family of 
Robert and Elizabeth (Jamison) Wilson. Robert Wilson bom 
in 1809 on the farm settled bv his father, southwest of New 
Concord. 

James R. attended school in Union and Rich Hill townships. 
In November, 1861, following the outbreak of the Civil War, 
he enlisted in Co. A, 78th Ohio Vol. Infantrv. He took part 
in battles of Shiloh, Vicksburg, Corinth and others. He was 
taken prisoner at Vicksburg and sent to Columbus, Ohio. He 
was later exchanged and rejoined his regiment. He fought val- 
iently under General Grant, being a sharp shooter, and for a 
time served as a body quart of Grant. He also fought under 
General Sherman, and in the bloody Battle of Atlanta, was 
wounded. A rifle ball stricking him in the left shoulder, 
passed under the shoulder blade and lodged in the vertebra 
This ball was never removed and it went into the grave with 
his body. Near the close of the war, Mr. Wilson was promoted 
to sergeant. When the war ended, he returned home and engaged 
in farming. 

Mr. Wilson was a good soldier. His patriotism and dev- 
otion to his country continued through life and at death a 
beautiful United States flag, draping his coffin, was lowered 
into the grave with his bodv. Thus he and the Stars and Stripes 
kept company to the end. 

Oct. 18, 1866, Mr. Wilson married Miss Jennie Thompson, 
of Peters Creek, Guernsey County, Ohio. She was a daughter of 
Gordon and Eliza (Walker) Thompson. Mr. and Mrs. Wilson were 
the parents of seven children: Clarence M. , Joseph F. , Bessie 
G. , Findley M. , J. Walker., Robert S. and Eva. 

May 31, 1882, Mrs. Wilson passed away after a lingering 
illness. She was forty years of age. She was a devout member 
of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of New Concord. Mr. Wilson 
was a life- long member of the same church, and contributed lib- 
erally of his time and means to its support. 

Mr. Wilson's second marriage occurred Nov. 6, 1884 to Miss 
Nannie A. Dew, a native of Monroe township, and a daughter of 
Thomas and Jane (Wallace) Dew. To this marriage one daughter, 
Edna M. , was bom. The mother died Oct. 23, 1887 at the age 
of 36. Mrs. Wilson was an estimable Christian woman, a member 
of the Reformed Presbyterian Church, to which she devoted much 
of her time. She was a former teacher at Fox Creek, 1882-1883. 

Mr. Wilson's third marriage was to Miss Elizabeth Galbraith, 
of Olathe, Kansas, on Aug. 5, 1897. Returning to Ohio, the 
couple resided in New Concord until 1905. Then after a two 
year residence in Pennsylvania with their sons. Walker and 
Findley, Mr. and Mrs. Wilson returned to Olathe, where they 
continued to live until the death of Mrs. Wilson, Dec. 30, 1928 
at the age of 81. Mr. Wilson then came to live at the home of 
his son, Dr. Findley Wilson, in Philadelphia. Here he remained 
until his death, passing away, Feb. 13, 1930, at age of 87. 

James R. Wilson was a consistent. Christian gentleman, 
mild, dignified and easy in his manner, hp held the confidence 
and respect of all who knew him. All measures of morality, 
education, temperance, and others of a like nature, found him 
a strong advocate. (Copied from "Historical and Biographical 
Memoirs of Fox Creek School" by F. E. Geyer, New Concord, 1945.

From the Evening Bulletin, Philadelphia, Pa., Mar. 18, 1929. 

(with picture; 

Guarded U. S. Grant before Vicksburg. Aged Veteran who saw 
Gen. McPherson killed comes to live with son here. 

After sixty- five years, James Renwick Wilson, a veteran 
of the Civil War, remembers the meal given to Union soldiers 
by the women of Philadelohia when he passed through the city 
one night in the winter of 1864 on his way to join Sherman in 
his march to the sea. 

Of the city itself he recalls nothing save the enthusiasm 
of the welcome and the meal - chicken, sweet ootatoes, Irish 
Dotatoes, tumios, oound cake and pie. Philadelohia, he says, 
has lingered in his mind along with other memories of the War 
of the Rebellion, as a symbol for good cooking. 

Mr. Wilson, now eighty- six, came to Philadelphia recently 
from Olathe, Kansas, to reside with his son, the Rev. Findley 
M. Wilson, 2410 N. Marshall St., oastor of the Third Church of 
the Covenanters, Franklin and Daunhin Sts. 

An eye witness of the death of General James B. McPherson 
during the fighting around Atlanta in July, 1864, Mr. Wilson 
carries a vivid recollection of General Grant at Vicksburg, and 
relates an unusual incident in the life of General John A. Logan. 

On the brief visit to Philadelphia Mr. Wilson relates: 
"I had been wounded and was returning to active service with a 
party of about 300 men. We were on the train several days, 
and were pining for a good meal. We were marched to a large 
hall, where ladies of the city had prepared one. It was one 
of the oleasantest memories of the war. " 

Mr. Wilson, who is a grand-nephew of James Renwick Wilson, 
famous chaplain of the War of 1812, enlisted in the 78th Ohio 
Infantry, at Zanesville, on Halloween night, 1861, and served 
to the end of the war, attaining the rank of lieutenant. Three 
brothers also served with the Union forces, an elder brother 
being killed at the battle of Shiloh. 

At the siege of Vicksburg he was detailed as a sharpshooter, 
as part of the guard thrown around the staff of General U. S. 
Grant, and recalls seeing the General visiting various posit- 
ions of his line. 

"General Grant passed my post on several occasions, always 
walking alone, and invariably with an unlighted cigar in his 
mouth." Mr. Wilson said. "He gave one the impression of being 
in deeo thought and seemed an unusually quiet and detached man. 
General Lew Wallace, author of 'Ben Hur,' was my division com- 
mander before Vicksburg." 

During the fightirig around Fort Donelson in Tennessee, 
General Logan mounted on a roan horse, was directly in the rear 
of Mr. Wilson's company during an advance. A bullet struck 
General Logan's horse and carried away part of the animal's 
mane, but did not seriously injure it. General Logan swore with 
rage, and jumped from his mount. Turning to his orderly, he 
said, 'Here, take this animal out of here before it gets badly 
hurt. • Then he walked out in front of our company and led 
the charge on foot." 

Mr. Wilson speaks of the day of General McPherson' s death 



43 



as "the bloody 22d of July." General Hood, a Confederate Com- 
mander, durinp the ni^ht, circled to the rear of McPherson's 
division, and his riflemen caught the Union force between a 
cross fire. 

"The fiehting was the hottest when the Confederates 
attacked a thicket occupied by our men," said Mr. Wilson. 
"General McPherson hurried to that noint on his horse, acco- 
mpanied by his orderly, a twelve-year old boy. A bullet killed 
him almost instantly, and what followed was one of the strang- 
est things I have ever seen. 

"General McPherson's orderly, this twelve-year boy, dis- 
mounted and stood there holding both animals while Southerners 
swept around him. Our men drove them back in a hand-to-hand 
fight, one of our standard-bearers saving the colors by beat- 
ing off several of the enemy with his fists. 

"During all this melee, the Southerners ignored the Gen- 
eral's orderly standing at the head of the two horses. 1 am 
convinced that they saw he was just a child, and were too manly 
to molest him. " 

During the day's engagement, Mr. Wilson's company, 100 
strong, suffered seventy-eight casualties. His fortune was a 
"minnie" ball which Pierced his left shoulder, and lodged in 
his back, close to his spine. The bullet was not located until 
an X-ray revealed its position. It is still there.

Clarence M. Wilson, oldest son of James R. Wilson 
received his grade school education at Fox Creek school in 
Muskingum County, Ohio, at age of 18, heeded Horace Greely's 
admonition "Go West young man". Locating in Kansas, he en- 
gaged in farming for some time. Attending Normal School a 
few months, and devoting much time to home study, he succeeded 
in passing teacher's examination. He taught in the public 
schools of the state for several years, and was eminently 
successful as an instructor. In the fall of 1894, he entered 
Western Dental College, Kansas City, Missouri, graduating in 
spring of 1897, with DDS degree, he established offices in 
Rosedale, Kansas. He later located inOlathe where he con- 
tinued his practice until his death in 1918. In connection 
with his work in Olathe, he continued to maintain offices in 
Rosedale, and in DeSota, Kansas. He was a hard worker, always 
applying himself vigorously, whatever the task. He was not 
ashamed to admit that he had gone in debt for most of his 
education. By close application to business and strict 
adherence to the principles of the Golden Rule, he became one 
of the leading dentists of the state. Inheriting many of the 
sterling principles of honesty and integrity of character of 
his father, he enjoyed the esteem and respect of all who knew 
him. 



Ada Marie Wilson, the eldest daughter of Clarence M. 
Wilson, graduated from Geneva College, June 1917, A. B. degree; 
attended Kansas University and Northwestern University. She 
taught in the high school at Turner, Kansas, for two years; 
Washington, Iowa, four years, and in the American Academy for 
Girls at Nicosia, Island of Cyprus, four years. 

Mr. Hutcheson is a graduate of Sterling College; Teacher's 
College, Columbia University, obtaining his AB degree from 
the former and his MA degree from the latter. Together the 
couple attended Biblical Seminary, New York, one semester. In 
February, 1928, they sailed for Syria, where they were engaged 
in missionary work for 13 years. Returning to the United States 
in 1941 on furlough, Mr. Hutcheson engaged in teaching. For 
two years he held the position of Professor of Social Science 
at Tarkio College, U. P. Tarkio, Missouri. Regarding Syria 
as the field of their remaining life work, they returned as 
soon as war conditions permitted. They taught in Reformed 
Presbyterian Mission, Latakia, Syria, 13 years.

Findley M. Wilson graduated from Muskingum College in 
1895. He entered the Reformed Presbyterian Theological 
Seminary the next fall, and was ordained Co the ministry in 

1899. During the next 13 years he held pastorates at Renfrew, 
Pa., Youngstown, 0., Parnassus, Pa., and Winchester, Kansas. 
In 1912, he was called to the Third Church of the Covenanters 
in Philadelphia, where he has remained for the oast 33 years. 

In conjunction with his duties as minister and pastor 
he is corresponding secretary of the Board of Foreign Missions 
of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America, a position 
with many responsibilities, and which he has held for the oast 
30 years. He is also President of the Board of Corporators 
of Geneva College, and a member of the Board of Superintend- 
ents Theological Seminary of the Reformed Presbyterian Church 
of North America, Pittsburgh. He was Moderator of the National 
Synod of the R. P. Church of North America, 1919-1920; is Sec- 
retary and occasional platform lecturer National Reform Ass'n 
of Pittsburgh. He was editor and publisher of "Olive Trees" 
a missionary magazine for six years; also associate editor 
of Covenanter Witness several years, and editor-in-chief for 
one year. 

"Who's Who" among the religious leaders of America places 
Dr. Wilson upon the highest pinacle of success in the eccles- 
iastical field, and his services and counsel are sought thr- 
oughout North America. 

In 1931, Dr. Wilson and his wife were members of a deput- 
ation sent to visit mission fields in the Near Elast, going by 
way of London, Paris, Geneva and the Mediteranian to the Island 
of Cyprus, Syria and Turkey. They visited the Holy Land by 
motor car, and later journeyed to Egypt and saw the mission 
work in Cairo. In a letter to the writer some years ago. Dr. 
Wilson refers to this trip as one of the most rewarding ex- 
periances of his entire life. 

In the heavy responsibilities carried by Dr. Wilson down 
through the years, he has been ably assisted by his good wife, 
the former Miss Laura Anderson, to whom he married July 17, 

1900. Mrs. Wilson is a cultured. Christian lady, eminently 
qualified for the many duties incident to her lot as the wife 
of a preacher whose duties and responsibilities are exception- 
ally heavy. 

Of the many Fox Creek boys and girls who achieved out- 
standing success in life, Findley Wilson stands high in the 
list. As a boyhood schoolmate and college classmate, the 
writer recalls that Findley was a good student, and early 
manifested an aptitude for public speaking. He has been em- 
inently successful in his chosen profession, and today is 
recognized as one of the outstanding preachers of the countrv. 
His old Fox Creek friends are proud of his success.

John Walker Wilson received his grade school training 
at Fox Creek. He continued his studies in the Department of 
Music in Muskingum College. He then took a course in butter 
and cheese making at Ohio State University, completing the 
course with highest honors. For some years he was employed 
in creameries in Byesville and New Concord as Operating Sup- 
erintendent. He then spent several years in Pittsburgh, Pa., 
and Youngstown, Ohio. In 1904, the family moved from Yovmgs- 
town to Beaver Falls, Pa. where Walker accepted a position 
with the Kaystone Driller Company, manufacturers of wall drills, 
pumps and power shovels. After advancing to the position of 
Chief Office Clerk and assistant to the General Manager in 
the sales department of the company, he resigned his position 
and established a business in Youngstown in order to represent 
Keystone Driller Company and other manufacturing companies as 
District Sales Agent. This business increased until he re- 
presented some eight or ten of the most prominent manufacturers 
on construction, industrial and mining machinery, under the 
name of J. Walker Wilson Machinery Company. He is a member 
of Associated Equipment Distributors, an international organ- 
ization. 

While his business made heavy demands upon his time, he 
always devoted much time to religious and educational work. 
He served as an elder in the Reformed Presbyterian Church for 
more than forty years. He was a member of the Board of Trustees 
of Geneva College for more than twenty years, and a member of 
the Board of Corporators of Geneva College for several years. 

Mr. and Mrs. Wilson are worthy m«nber of the College 
Hill Reformed Presbyterian Church of Beaver Falls. Their son 
Robert F. and wife and John Find ley are also members of this 
church. Mr. Wilson served as chairman of the Elders Conference 
of the National Synod of the Reformed Presbyterian Church for 
a period of two years, from June, 1943 to June, 1945. This is 
an Association composed of the Lay Delegates to the Synod. Mr. 
Wilson was also a member of a permanent committee of the Nat- 
ional Synod, whose function is to keep a complete file of all 
members of the Reformed Presbyterian Church who are in the 
armed forces, and also of those who are employed in war work 
which takes them out of the bounds of their respective cong- 
regations. This committee keeps in contact with these members 
by correspondence, and will untimately cooperate in their re- 
habilitation. These groups comprise more than 20 percent of 
the total membership of the denomination, 

Desoite the heavy responsibilities carried by Mr. Wilson 
down through the years, he and Mrs. Wilson have never lost 
interest in old Fox Creek. Both are regular attendants at 
our annual Fox Creek reunions and have done much to inspire 
interest in these happy affairs. Mr, Wilson served as Pres- 
ident of the Association for three consecutive years, 1942. 
1943, 1944.

Mercer Co., Pa., d. April 4, 1897, San Jose. Both are bur. 
in the Old So. Henderson U. P. Church Cem. near Oquawka. 
The family first lived near Oquawka, then Olena, 111., where 
this farm was their home for many years. The iater move was 
to Monmouth, 111., where the children attended college. They 
again moved in or near Bismarck, N. Dakota and then to Santa 
Clara Valley, Calif., chiefly in San Jose.

was b. Aug. 11, 1875 near Charlottsville, Va., died 
April 21, 1954, Taunton, Mass. He was reared in the United 
Presbyterian Church but his pastorates were mostly Cong- 
regational. He had a rather vatied career, after graduating 
from Monmouth College in 1882, A.B. and A.M. degrees, he 
and all of his family moved to Sterling, North Dakota and 
for some time, at least, he ran a newspaper in in Bismarck 
with Col. W. P. Moffat (brother of Hughe Moffat of Monmouth- 
Daily Review). Eight or ten years later he went to Calif., 
San Jose and thereabouts, where his father, mother and 
sisters had gone and eventually became a teacher of bus- 
iness subjects at the College of the Pacific, San Jose, 
and later at Tarkio College, Tarkio, Mo. (1905-10). For 
about three years he was connected with the Bobbs-Merrill 
Co., Indianapolis, and then moved to New Haven, Conn., 
where he taught in a business college and also worked with 
a firm of accoxintants. However, he had always felt he 
should have been a minister and in 1916-17-18 he studied 
at Yale University Theological School and was ordained 
while I was an undergraduate and he was approaching 60 years. 
After he got me through college he took the pastorate of 
the Presbyterian Church in Hanover, Indiana, 1921. From 
there he went to United Church, Congregational, in Beacon 
Falls, Conn., about 1923-7, thence to a Congregational 
Church in Mount Dora, Florida, for perhaps a year when he 
returned to Connecticut and was pastor of the Congregational 
Church at Burlington Center for over 13 years, retiring in 
the spring of 1943. (Above data written by his son, David.)

The unfinished letter below was supposed to have been 
written bv Matthew Findley (1793-1863) to friends back east 
in Ohio. The original letter is in possession of Mary 
Jamison Boyd, of Winterset, Iowa, the great granddaughter of 
Matthew Findley. 

Henderson County, 111., May the 19th, 1842 

Dear Friends 

Availing myself of the leisure of a wet day I sit 
down to write you a few lines informing you of our welfare and 
also of some of the news and gossip of our country. We are all 
enjoying good health at present for which blessing we hope we 
are all thankful to a merciful Providence and we fondly hope 
that these few lines may find you and all the friends enjoying 
the same blessing. "John Quincy has been suffering for nearly 
a year with a White Swelling in his ancle but his health is 
otherwise good. The Doctor thinks that all the unsoimd bone 
has been removed and that it will soon heal up. 

Our country has been tolerably healthy this spring 
although there has been a few severe cases of sickness in our 
neighborhood and one death. One of our neighbors went down 
the River to New Orleans last fall on a trading expedition and 
was away all winter he caught the Disentary before he returned 
and came home sick he used severe astringent medicines which 
threw him into a fever of which he never recovered. We have 
had a very early soring the earliest I ever Knew Vegitation was 
as forward on the first of Aoril as it often is on the first of 
May the prairies were as green as a wheat- field and the forest 
almost black with leaves on the first of April. We had a very 
soft and mild winter very little snow and scarcely any cold 
weather at all our worst storm was in Nov. 

The wheat crops looks very well in our neighbor- 
hood but I have been told that it is not so good in some other 
places. We have near forty acres in wheat which is very for- 
ward for this season of the year and admonishes us to prepare 
for an early harvest, we have been done planting for some time 
our com is up and struggling for life with the prairie ground 
squirrels and crows. We have court in Oquawka next week and 
perhaps it would do any of you good to step in and see the way 
business is done here. It is the most primitive court in our 
circuit and would form a drab comparison with some of your city 
courts and court-houses. Our court last season was held in a 
carpenters work shop this term it is to be held in a warehouse 
but we have a splendid courthouse being erected this summer 
perhaos you are not aware that we divided our covinty last season 
we had formerly belonged to Warren County and we helped them 
to build a courthouse which cost 10000 Dollars now that we are 
struck off in our- selves we have to raise another which will 
cost nerhans an equal amount. 

The times have been dull here for a good while but 
now there is no times at all the word is do as you can. Those 
who have had plenty of wheat to sell this winter have done 
pretty well while those farmers who have been engaged in the 
pork line are complete used up. Some of the farmers went down 



91 



the River last fall with their oork -- they Renerally saved 
themselvea but lost their Dork. 

Wheat has been worth 62^ cents Pork last fall was 
worth from one to two dollars ner hundred Bacon this soring 
is worth 1^ cents oer Dound. They have been trying; to nut 
down our Bank this winter and they have in oart succeeded. 
Illinois State Bank naoer is onlv worth 75 cents on the dollar. 
This is a hard go on the farmers many of them sold their wheat 
althrouph the winter for State B-^nk naner and consequently 
suffer a loss of 25 ner cent but this is common now-a-davs 
and Cantain Tyler seems determined to continue the same state 
of things. Caotain Tyler is in bad renute among the oeonle 
here thev kick him about like old shoes and talk of not elect- 
ing him any more but sending him back to Virginia to raise 
Tobacco. I think he is best at that. It is bet^ining to be 
hinted strongly among the old Ladies at their wool pickings 
that Henry Clay is to be the next President and you know what 
the Women takes into their heads is oretty ant to be done. 
Well let it be so Women sometimes get worse notions in their 
heads than that. But I wont say a word about it for we live 
in the successor state and everybody knows there is more fools 
here than wise people and besides we exoect to have this state 
sold at Constable sale long before the election. We dont owe 
only about seventeen millions of dollars and you know that is 
a small circumstance only about 200 dollars to each voter or 
30 dollars to each inhabitant in the State. 

Mr. Van Buren the little Magician is on a tour 
through the west this soring he was at the Hermitage oaying 
a visit to the old Roman the last account, he is expected to 
pay Mr. Benton a visit at St. Louis and perhaps he may come 
up the River this far. I should like to get a oeep at him 
very much, but then I would not know him except by his ears, 
and then there is so many people here with long ears that it 
would be pretty hard to tell. But I must stop or perhaps you 
will think I am quite too saucy.

Welcome Address by Elder W. A. Findley, given at the 
Semi-Cent<2nnial Meeting, South Henderson, U. P. Church, 
Sat. July 4, 1885. Ref: "Story of South Henderson" 

Kind Friends: 

We are glad that so many of you have seen fit to honor 
us with your presence today; glad that so goodly a number of 
our friends and neighbors have come to help us commemorate 
the anniversary of the day of our organization; and we are 
especially glad to see the faces of so many of old friends, 
who have met with us, and with whom we have spent so many 
pleasant hours in day that are past. We extend to you our 
kindest wishes and cordial greeting. And we hope you may 
each one find something in our meeting today that may be in- 
teresting to you and prove a blessing to us. 

As we attempt to notice some of the events and circum- 
stances that have brought us together, so many thoughts crowd 
upon us that we scarcely know where to begin. Fifty summers 
and winters have succeeded each other and gone to an endless 
eternity, since the Banner of the Cross was first raised in 
this then new country. A few of our fathers had explored 
this region of country, and, seeing the broad and level pr- 
airies with their rich and fertile soil, concluded to make 
this land their future home. The face of our country at that 
time presented a beautiful appearance, much more so than at 
the present. There were no hedges, or shade trees, or or- 
chards to obstruct the view as at the present. The wide pra- 
iries, reaching in many places beyond the scan of vision, had 
the appearance of a vast and beautiful meadow covered with a 
luxuriant crop of grass interspersed with wild flowers of al- 
most every hue. The wild and uncivilized Indian, the prowling 
wolf and timid deer were the almost only occupants of the land , 
and roamed over the prairies unmolested. Our fathers, with 
heroic courage and self denial, conceived the idea of convert- 
ing these prairies into fruitful fields and pleasant homes; 
but the difficulties they had to encounter, the hardships and 
privations they had to endure, are known only to those who 
have themselves settled in a new country. They can be better 
imagined than described by us. Although there was no chopping 
or grubbing, or clearing off of timber to do, as in some other 
new countries, still the task, the labor of making farms and 
homes out of these prairies, was arduous, requiring much self- 
denial, patience and perseverance. The prairies were hard to' 
break up; the fathers had no lumber, but had to split slabs 
or boards, as best they could, for constructing houses of shelter; 
and oftep, very often, they had to pound the com into meal 
with which to make their bread. 

But these difficulties, serious as they sometimes were, 
requiring heroic courage to overcome, were not their only, or 
even their hardest trials. They had hours of solitude; their 
Sabbath-days were silent and lonely; they were deprived of the 
soul satisfying ordinances of divine grace. As the pious Jew 
in captivity hung his harp on the willows, turned his face to- 
ward Jerusalem and wept, so they sometimes turned their faces 



93 



backward toward the land of Beulah, and Longed and yearned 

for the consolations of the Gosnel and the communion of saints. 

It was on the 4th day of July, 1835, the day we celebrate, 
that a few of them associated themselves together and organized 
the society which, by the blessing of God, still continues to 
exist, and continues to worship in this house. To perpetuate 
the memory of that day, to mark what God has done for us as a 
congregation, to strengthen our hands and encourage our hearts, 
we assembled here today. We hope the time may be so spent, 
that, when we separate and go to our homes, although some of 
them are far distant, we may each one be enabled to say that 
it was good for us to be here. 

Of that band of devoted Christian patriots who organized 
our Church, we believe there are five or six still living; 
but none of them reside among us now. They are scattered over 
five or six different states of the West. We rejoice to see 
the faces of three of them, who have come long Journeys to 
meet with us today. God grant that we may meet them each one 
on the celestial shore. Your humble servant was not one who 
helped to organize; but he came and settled among them in the 
autumn of the same year, three or four months after the organ- 
ization. 

To our venerable friend, Father Blaikie, who assisted in 
our organization, and who has come so far to be with us today, 
we say: We are glad to see you and make your acquaintance. 
Grateful for what you have done for us in the past, we extend 
to you the hand of friendship and love, and hope you will ac- 
cept assurances of our kindest wishes for health and happiness. 
We bid you a hearty welcome. 

To the memory of our departed pastor, Rev. Ross, we drop 
a silent tear. We remember his work of faith and labor of 
love among us. 

To our former pastors. Rev. Dr. McGaw and Rev. Lorimer, 
we say: We are glad to see your familiar faces once more. Your 
presence recalls many sweet recollections of the past, in the 
days when your voices were heard, warming teaching and ex- 
horting us, and directing our feet in the path of life. We 
extend to you each our kindest wishes, and tender you the free- 
dom of our grovinds. 

What we have been enabled to accomplish as a congregation, 
is not for us to say; but we trust we have not been altogether 
idle in the Master's vineyard. Yet, while we have been enabled 
to do something towards evangelizing the world abroad, we have 
still, by divine grace, kept the coals alive and burning on 
the altar at home. 

Friends, ladies and gentlemen, one and all, we bid you a 
hearty and cordial welcome, and hope you may each one enjoy 
the hour.

"In April or May, 1904, the John Findley Henderson family, 
especially grandmother and grandfather had all their property 
swept away by a flood. It was such a terrifying experience, 
I remember it myself. 

My grandparents were fortunate to escape with their lives. 
They sat in the center of their bed and floated and whirled 
around in swirling waters all night. Their youngest son, 
Uncle Fred, was with them and saved their lives by pulling them 
to the bed. They sat there all night and saw their possess- 
ions, family Bible with records, and everything, also the 
postoffice which they had in their home float away. The din- 
ing table whirled around all night and the lighted lamp for 
some reason remained on the table. 

All that was saved was something that the water carried 
near enough to the bed for Fred to reach to pull on the bed 
with them. It was a flash flood caused by a cloudburst to the 
north. Three creeks that were usually dry were rushing tor- 
rents spreading out to a half a mile in width. 

All the family's live stock- cattle, horses and fine mules 
were caught and drowned. So all the family except Uncle Guy 
moved to a town, Ordway, and started over. Guy stayed on the 
ranch and started over again in the cattle business. His bro- 
thers and parents all eventually sold him all their land, acres 
and acres of that grazing land in Eastern Colorado. "

Glendale, Calif. In 1951, Mrs. Malmsbury, with the assistance 
of her daughter, was completing a novel concerning the oioneer- 
ing of the Hinkley Valley in the Mojave Desert. They came to 
Glendale in 1910, but in 1914, she and her husband moved to 
Hinkley, Calif., just about ten miles north of Barstow, It was 
a "pioneer" move in the strictest sense, because Hinkley at 
that time was just a wide-spread handful of tents and small 
shacks, with every family finding it necessary to develoD their 
own water supplies and build their homes amid sand and sage- 
brush that still was the home of wild animals, rattlesnakes 
and gila monsters. A basic philosophy is integrated in the 
novel, she explained, which can be summed up in the words, 
"Where we are living does not matter; it's what we make of what 
we have that counts." She is also an author of poetry and re- 
ligious works. Ref: Glendale newspaper item, Dec. 1951.

William Edward Hawthorne was bom June 7, 1859, in a log cabin 
on the farm in Granville township, which was the pioneer home 
of his parents, he was one of the twin sons of William and 
Susan Findley Hawthorne. His ancestral lineage for several 
generations has been distinctly American and he was of English, 
Scotch and Irish descent. After attending the public schools 
he pursued a scientific course at Northern Indiana Normal Sch- 
ool, now Valparaiso University. In early manhood he engaged 
in teaching school. It was at Marengo, Mich., while working 
in a grain elevator with his older brother, S. D. that he se- 
cured his first position. He returned to Granville in the early 
1880s, walking to Florida to teach the school in that village. 
Later he went to Vermontville, Mich., where he held his first 
princioalship and where his little bride was also an instructor. 
He taught his last school in Essexville, Michigan. 

Mr. Hawthorne's business life in Granville began in the 
fall of 1884 when he took charge of a general store for H. Bat- 
man. The following autumn, in connection with G. L. Brando, he 
established a hardware and grocery store in the building former- 
ly used as the Granville Academy. For fifteen years he was thus 
engaged, retiring after his election to the office of superin- 
tendent of schools of Putnam County, which office he occuoied 
for eight years. In 1901 Mr. Hawthorne organized the Granville 
Mercantile Company which he conducted for four years. 

In 1903 he established the Granville Echo, which was under 
the management of his brother-in-law, B. B. Blosser, until 1905, 
when he abondoned the mercantile business to take control of 
the newspaper and printing business. In 1933, after having pub- 
lished the Putnam Record for Hennepin a short time, the paoers 
merged, becoming the Putnam County Record. He served as 
secretary of the Granville Lecture Association, an organization 
which brought such speakers as William Jennings Bryan and Carrie

mittee of One Thousand which went to Washington in the cause of

W. H. Grurranon, School Director and Prominent 
Industrialist, died, 54. 

W. H. Grummon 54, of 514 WashlnRton St., member of (^Incy 
Board of Education and Ass't Treas. of the Gardner- Denver Co., 
died shortly after 4 o'clock Frldav afternoon in Blessing 
Hospital. In fallinji health for some time, he had been ser- 
iously ill since October, having been a oatient in Blessing 
HosDital since October 30. Prior to that time he had been to 
the Mayo Clinic in Rochester for examination. Unable to att- 
tend meetings of the board of education for several months, 
or to take oart in committee activities, Mr. Grummon' s death 
was announced to his colleagues of the board as they sat in 
special meetin Friday afternoon, the final action of the board 
at the meeting being the oassage of a resolution of svmnathv 
and condolence, with the secretary instructed to write to the 
widow, Mrs. Eva Conger Grummon. 

Mr. Grummon had been with the Gardner- Denver Comoanv for 
sixteen years, working to the resnonsible oosition which he 
held at the time of his death. Prior to that, however, he had 
been well known in Quincy, having served for sometime as sec- 
retary of the boys' deoartment of the YMCA nosition, leaving 
the YMCA to go with the Gardner-Denver Comoany. 

It was as a member of the board of education, during the 
last four and one-half years, however, that Mr. Grummon had 
come particularly to the public attention in Quincy. He was 
elected to the board in Aoril of 1931, he was re-elected in 
1934, and at the time of his death had a year and one-half to 
serve of his oresent term which would exoire in April in 1932. 
Mr. Grummon was one of the first members of the board of ed- 
ucation elected in what amounted to a transition of the board, 
which has resulted in recent years in virtually an entire 
change in board oersonnel. 

As a member of the board of education, Mr. Grummon took 
a most active interest in school affairs. He had served on 
various board committees, being at the time of his death, chair- 
man of the important education committee. Mr. Grummon was 
outspoken in meetings and orogressive in his views. 

The son of the late Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Grummon, Wm. H. 
Grummon was born in Clayton on Oct. 25, 18S1, came to Quincv 
as a young man, living with his narents, until his marriage 
to the former Miss Eva Conger of Quincy who survives him. 
One brother, Rev. Ray Grummon, pastor of the First Methodist 
Church of Decatur, also survives him and two children, Mildred, 
at home and Helen, who is a junior in the C^uincy Senior High 
School. Mr. Grummon was a member of the Vermont St. Methodist 
Church.

From Anril 14, 1933 issue of Staten Island Advance: 

A 79 year old grandmother, who 70 years ago moved with her 
father from Illinois to Kansas in a covered wagon, came to 
Staten Island yesterday to visit her son by airolane. The 
visitor, Mrs. Jane Moore, of Chautauqua, Kansas, hooped aboard 
a TWA airliner yesterday morning at Wichita, Kansas, in her 
first exoerience at flying. Was she frightened? "No'' she told 
her son, Bruce Moore, of 141 St. Mark's Place, St. George, "it 
was the most heavenly trin I ever had". Mrs. Moore was last 
in the East ten years ago. That time she came by train. She 
lived a while in Los Anaeles, where her son was bom, so she 
has covered much of the country by rail. 

Born in Keithsburg, 111., I-lrs. Moore was taken west to 
Kansas Shortly after the Civil War when the government gave 
away homesteads to encourage settling. Her father settled in 
Chautauqua. Two younger brothers and a younger sister make 
their home there with Mrs. Moore. 

The elderly v;oman is here with her son and daughter-in- 
law for an indefinite stay. She was greeted last night, also 
by her two granddaughters. Miss Barbara Moore and Mrs. Jane 
Schnackenburg of 26 Florence St., Great Kills, and her 
granddaughter's husband, Fred Schnackenburg.

From Merced, Calif, newspaper, during World War II. 

Merced Marine Gives Blood to Wounded Buddy on Battle Line. 
(The following story was written by Sgt. Benjamin Goldbert 
of Dorchester, Mass, a Marine Corps Combat Correspondent.) 

"Capt.Glouchester, New Britain- Delayed. A short distance 
behind the front lines. Marine Private First Class Carl W. 
Sawyer, 19 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter R. Sawyer of 
Route 2, Merced, Calif., gave a blood transfusion to save the 
life of a sergeant in his combat engineer outfit, then re- 
turned to the front lines, 

"The three bullets that just skimmed over my head hit 
the sergeant, who was 20 yards behind me," he said. "I didn't 
know it at the time. 

"Next day, the word was passed that the sergeant was in 
a tough shape. They'd given him blood plasma, but he had a 
rare type of blood and a transfusion might do the trick. 

"I have that type of blood, so I went back and the doc- 
tors took some from me. I returned to the lines. I felt all 
right. 

"When we dropped back a couple of days later, I found 
out that the sergeant had been unconscious for 36 hours, but 
came out of it and they figured he'd be all right after a 
time. " 

The Marine is a flame-thrower and worked with the infant- 
ry in clearing Jap pillboxes. He attended Merced High School 
and worked as a sign painter before he enlisted a year ago.

The Kan.sas Flndley FarnlLv. 

John Pierce FindLey and faiiilv travelled from Kelchsburg, 
(New Boston) Illinois, in IR70, by covered waeon and without 
firearms, with a family by the name of Scott, to Chetooa, Kan- 
sas, where he left the famllv for the winter and went on west 
and homesteaded a olace near what is now Chautauqua, Kansas, 
and brought his family to it Varch 4, 1R71. His son, Bruce, 
and daughter, Maggie Parker, still lived on the nlace when it 
was sold in the Snrin'^ of 1Q47. He never owned a fiream in 
his life and did not believe they were needed. He carried the 
Bible and several song books on the trio west. He cut logs 
for the homestead home from land where the town of Chautauqua 
now stands, the logs are still in the walls of nart of the nre- 
sent home. There was no timber on his nlace, onlv nrairie 
grass, when he settled on it, and the familv has watched the 
timber grow and now much of it is in timber, black jack oaks. 
He was a lover of orchards and during his life on the olace, 
planted three different orchards besides a bi^ vineyard, the 
first orchard was all aoole trees. 

The Findley home was alwavs onen to friends and neiehbors 
and a olace of entertainment for church delegates, oreachers 
and their families and church gatherings. It was a house of 
hosoitality for young folks on Sundavs and all the descendants 
loved to go to Grandoa and crandma Findlev's home. 

Grandma Findley got her first sewing machine at a cost 
of $45,00 at Sedan, Kansas. She had made all her family's 
clothes by hand uo until that time. Her family consisted of 
herself, Grandoa, and seven children. She dyed and soun all 
her yarn but hired a neighbor woman to weave the cloth. She 
also knitted all the stockings and mittens for her family. 
She did her sewing and knitting by candle light, making the 
candles herself until Grandna bought a lamo in Keithsburg. 
They saw the first Indians in Chetooa, Kansas, in 1870. 



From the History of the State of Kansas, by A. T. Andreas, 

Chicago, 1883, nage 1220. 

J. P. Findley, farmer, P. 0. Chautauqua Sorings, was born in 
Muskingum Co., Ohio, in 1832, and was raised and lived there 
until 1855, Thence moved to Mercer County, Illinois, and re- 
mained there until 1870, when he emigrated to Kansas, locating 
in Howard County and took a claim before the land was surveyed. 
The nearest ooint on a railroad was about 80 miles, and for a 
time he had to go that distance for suoolies and there were but 
very few settlers. His claim is on Sec. 10, Two. 35, Range 11. 
He has 200 acres, watered bv 2 fine sorings, which furnish 
Dlenty of water; has 120 acres of timber and 50 acres under 
cultivation, 90 acres fenced, 4 acres of orchard, in full con- 
dition and with a full variety. The olace is well stocked with 
40 head of cattle, a number of horses and other stock. Mr. 
Findley has been very successful, and has a choice olace now, 
3/4 mile from Chautauqua Sorings. He married in 1856 at Vao- 
ello, Iowa, to Miss Sarah Willson. They have seven children: 
Annie May, Lillie J., Maggie W. , Amelia, Bruce, Roy and Ed. 
He is a member of the United Brethren Church.

From The Weekly Times Star and The Sedan Lance, Sedan, Kans., 

Thurs. Nov. 4, 1909. 

John Pierce Findley was born in New Concord, Muskingum Co., 
Ohio, Mar. 17, 1832, and died at his home near Chautauqua, Kans., 
Oct, 26, 1909, age 77 vrs. 7 mo. and 9 days. 

On the 26th of June, 1856, he was married to Miss Sarah 
Willson who has shared with him the joys and responsibilities 
of life for more than 53 years, and who survives to mourn the 
loss of a kind, affectionate and devoted husband. The deceased 
was an old settler in this part of Kansas. He has resided upon 
the farm which was his home since Mar. 4, 1871. He lived a 
long and useful life and was held in the highest esteem by all 
who knew him. He was a good citizen, a good neighbor, and a 
faithful friend and above all a Christian gentleman. About 
thirty- four years ago he united with the United Brethren Church 
and remained a faithful and active member until the Master call- 
ed him from labor to reward. He was regarded as the father of 
the United Brethren Church at Chautauqua and perhaps next to 
his own family the church will miss him most but he will be 
missed greatly by everyone in this community. Father Findley 
was a quiet reserved man but a man of strong conviction? and 
sufficient courage to stand for his convictions. You always 
knew where to find him and upon questions pertaining to moral- 
ity, religion and social good you always found him upon the 
right side doing all he could for the right. 

His funeral was conducted from the United Brethren Church 
at Chautauqua, Oct. 28th at 2 o'clock by the writer and his 
remains were tenderly laid to rest upon the farm where he had 
lived for more than thirty- eight years, A very large concourse 
of sorrowing friends were in attendance at the funeral and with 
sad hearts following the casket to its final resting place. 
Besides Mother Findley and the seven children of whom mention 
has already been made, he left seventeen grandchildren and five 
great grandchildren to mourn the death of a tender-hearted, 
sweet spirited Godly man who was a father to all in the 
community.

John ?. Donelson, who soent his bovhood In Sedan in back 
into the service of his countrv after a resnlte in an outstand- 
inz naval career. He will be reme^iberefi here as the grandson 
of the late Col. Samuel M. Donelson, with whom he lived in 
Sedan, and the prandson of J. P. '•"Indlev of Chautauqua. 

ThouRh the famllv home was near Elzln, John was born "down 
the creek a-wavs" in the Osaee Indian Territory. Thus when he 
erew un and attended the U. S. Naval Academy at Annanolls, he 
had the distinction of belne; the first native-born Oklahoman 
to attend that Institution and graduated In 1910. 

Uoon eraduatlon from the acac^.e^v^ Donelson went at once 
to sea, snendlne three years on the battleshlo Vlrp.inla. Then 
he was transferred to the Asiatic Squadron for three years from 
which he covered the Phlllnolnes, Jaoan, the China coast and 
cruised a thousand miles uo the Yanp-t7.e River. John F. Jonel- 
son is a llvine: examnle of a vounp man who joined the navy and 
saw the world. ;)urlnR the 'Vorld Var, he served ^s a Runnerv 
officer on the armored crvilser South Dakota, and after then 
was he elected another cruise In the Orient, rather than be on 
shore duty. He encaped In continuous sea service until Jec. 
1936, when he was retired because of ohvslcal disability. 

His retirement, however, was brief. With the country acain 
at war, >'r. Donelson has returned to service. '-/hile he no long- 
er mans the puns on a rolllnp shin, he has a nlace just as vital 
to America, servinp as Caotaln In charpe of the Naval Reserve 
tralnlnp at Norman, Oklahoma. Early day residents of this 
county who remembar Col. Samuel M. Donelson will not wonder at 
the unusual career of his prandson. The Colonel himself was a 
flphtlne man. A southerner, as his title Imnlles, he broupht 
his famllv from Texas to the Indian Territory where they lived 
only a short time before the government moved out the white 
settlers to make wav for the Indians. 

On July 4, 1S70, he made a soeech to a crowd of early set- 
tlers on the first Indenendence Day celebration ever held in 
what is now the State of Oklahoma. Old timers say of this 
occasion, "Old Glory was flunp to the breeze and the American 
eaple screamed as never before". 

The families who made un the little settlement In the 
territory loved their homes, the more so from havinp obtained 
them through hardship and difficulties, and the threat of evic- 
tion in order to turn these loved olacos over to the Indians, 
roused rebellion among them. Seventy-one years aeo on just 
such a May day as this, one of the last skirmishes with the 
Indians took olace in the territory south of Elgin. Charact- 
eristically enough, Col. Donelson was there, one of about a 
dozen men who encountered nearly a hundred angered Indians. 
In the fray, Joseoh Selter a white settler, was shot from his 
horse and lay in the dust begging for water. Tho his comrades 
ventured forth with a hatful of water from Turkey Creek, 
Joseph Selter died where he had fallen. 

After leaving the territory, the Donelson family estab- 
lished their home in Chautauqua County and remained here until 
their children were grown. After a long life of courageous 
adventure, the Colonel died at his home In east Sedan with 
his grandson at his side. 

From the Sedan, Kansas, Newsoaoer, Fall of 1941.

From The Oklahoma Daily, Norman, Ok la, 
July 6, 1944, University of Oklahoma 
publication. 

Though no huge bedecked birthday cake stood on his desk 
Wednesday, Capt, J. F. Donelson, commanding officer of the 
V-12 unit, as probably the oldest naval officer both as to 
age and service limit now on duty in the state, marked his 
39th service birthday. 

Now on his 40th year of navy record, he can easily cite hap- 
penings of his last day of "personal freedom" July 4, 1905, 
the day before he reported for navy duty- which he spent sail- 
boating on Chesapeake Bay with "fair damsels" of the day. 

Bom on the Osage Indian Reservation, Captain Donelson is 
listed as the first native Oklahoman ever to attend the naval 
academy at Annapolis. He was graduated from the school and 
assigned to active duty in 1910, Now, a veteran of naval sea 
action, the Captain jokingly tells men under his command that 
"the first 30 years are the hardest. After you once make it 
over the humps found in these years, you'll find navy life 
sailing," he points out. 

Appointed to the academy by Bird S. McGuire, delegate to Con- 
gress, Capt, Donelson was active in the sports program there 
and set a running broad jump academy record of 22 feet, 7^ 
inches which stood for 13 years. 

Before he was retired because of a physical disability which 
incapacitated him from sea duty in December, 1936, he had spent 
several years in the Asiatic sector which included the Phili- 
ppines, Japan and China; seen action in World War I, and been 
on a three year rour of duty for the navy department. At the 
time of his retirement he was executive officer of the navy 
cruiser Chicago. 

In 1940 he was recalled to active duty and assigned to the 11th 
naval district headquarters at San Diego where he was stationed 
until he was transferred here in February, 1942, as commandant 
of the NROTC. On July 1, 1943, when the V-12 program became 
effective. Captain Donelson was named commanding officer. 

While on active sea duty, Captain Donelson also served on the 
folowing ships: Virginia, Galveston, Helena, Saratoga, Con- 
necticut, South Dakota, Alabama, Idaho and Dickerson.

12 miles from the battle ground, Petersburp. . . . After dinner 
oroceed to Gen. Grant's headquarters... Write to M. . . Am 
assigned to the 9th Army Corns Field Hosnltal... raining hard. 
Can see the soires in Petersburg 3 miles distant, shells from 
the Reb's guns bursting off to our rieht; to our left heavy 
firing of musketry and roaring off cannon... I seat mvself on 
my blankets and read from Paul's Enistle to the Romans 7th 5. 
8th Chanters, also the l5th Chanter of the Acts. In the mean- 
time a company of Reb prisoners, 600 arrive... After dinner we 
see a great many wounded coming back from the field of action. 
Firing has almost ceased and we oroceed to the 5th Corns. Gen. 
Warren Connmanding. Gen. Mead's headquarters is just across a 
little stream in front of our tents... I visit the hosnltal 
tent taking reading material, and some dried cherries for a 
sick soldier... Oct. 9th "All quiet along the Potomac tonight" 
... We visit Gen. Mead's headquarters and nrocure his auto- 
graph... Oct. lOth, this is my birthday (25 yrs.) visit the

Arrive at Pits. 4 in the morning. So ends my exnedition. "

JAMES F1NDLEY(IR06.1SRR) 

James Findlev, son of David and Jane (Mitchell) ''Indley 
was born Seot. 13, 1S06 In Elizabeth townshlo, Alle^henv Co. | 
Pa., and died In Monmouth, Illinois, S*»nt. I, IHSS. In the** 
year of his birth his father and family removed to Muskingum 
County, Ohio, and his earlv life was snent on a farm near New 
Concord and In New Concord. 

In 1829, he married Eliza Sneer, a daughter of Judge 
Stuart Sneer and his wife, Jane Scott, of fJuernsey Co., Ohio. 
Eliza Jane Soeer belonged to an old colonial family and was 
a descendant of Colonel Abraham Scott and of Caotaln Moses 
McClean, both of whom served In the Revolution. She died In 
Monmouth, III., In IS76. 

At New Concord, James Flndlev was a considerable orooerty 
owner for those times; he was the owner of a farm, a grist mill 
and the village tavern. He was an elder In the church and a 
trustee of Muskingum College, which he with others, was Ins- 
trumental in founding. His farm seems to have been a station 
on the "underground Rallwav", for he concealed runaway slaves 
and aided them in their escane to Canada. In 1835, In comnany 
with his brother, Matthew, he made a journey on horseback to 
the Illinois country, going as far west as Henderson County on 
the Mississiool River, but it was not until twenty years later 
that he sold his orooerty at New Concord and removed to Mon- 
mouth, Warren County, Illinois, where he engaged in milling 
and other ooerations. 

Owing to the general financial conditions followlne the 
war, he was unfortunate in his business and lost most of his 
orooerty. Refusing to eo into bankruntcy, he assumed the debts 
of the firm of which he was a member. Out of the wreck of his 
estate he had left only his home In Monmouth and some twenty 
acres of land near the citv limits. Havlne eood health and 
abundant energy he went to work on this olece of land and made 
it into a profitable fruit farm. 

It was not long before his berries and his graoes were 
the best in the neighborhood; they were the first In the market 
and brought the highest orices. He labored on here until he 
had oaid the last of his debts and saved for himself a com- 
fortable home In Monmouth, where with his widowed daughter, he 
soent his last days, conscience clear and with an income suff- 
icient to secure for himself the rest and independence to which 
he was entitled in his old aee. 

For his genuine manliness, James Findlev was held In high 
esteem in the community, both at New Concord and Monmouth. At 
Monmouth, he was an elder in the Second United Presbyterian 
Church from the time of its organization until his death. He 
was a constant reader of good books and Periodicals, wrote 
occasionally to the oaners on agricultural and political sub- 
jects and was interested in all public questions. H^ was thor- 
oughly conscientious and generous bevond his means. In con- 
versation, he was serious, sometimes humorous and always In- 
teresting. He was not easily depressed bv misfortune; consid- 
ering the load he was carrying, his disposition was cheerful. 
Seated in a light wagon behind his old white horse, one of a 
team of fine carriage horses which he drove in his more pros- 
perous days, he would go singing to his work like a bov with- 
out a care In the world.

JOHN FINDLEY WALLACE "A MEMOIR" from American Ry. Eng. 
Ass'n and the Amer. Soc. of Civ. Engineers, (in part) 

In 1869, Mr. Wallace entered the service of the Charthage 
Sc Quincy Railroad as rodman. In 1370, was Ass't Engineer of 
Surveys of the Quincy, Alton & St. Louis R. R. From 1871 to 
1876, he was Ass't Eng. in the U. S. Eng. Corps at Rock Island, 
111. During that time he was also engaged in private surveys 
and other important work, one of which was excavation of a 
channel through the St. Louis chain of rocks by machinery of 
his own design and construction and by day labor, personally 
supervised by him. It is interesting to note that a previous 
attemot had been made to excavate the channel through this 
particular chain of rocks by the U. S. Gov't earlier in the 
century, but submarine blasting carried on at that time was 
unsuccessful. He also removed the foundation of the original 
Rock Island bridge, the first bridge constructed across the 
Mississippi River. 

In 1879, he was apnointed Chief Engineer of the Peoria & 
Farmington Railway, of which he had charge of location, const- 
ruction and ooeration from Peoria to Keithsburg. Later this 
road was consolidated with the Iowa Central, and Mr. Wallace 
had charge as Master of Trains. At the same time he was eng- 
ineer in charge of construction and improvements on this line, 
one interesting piece of work being the construction of a tra- 
nsfer over the Mississippi River at Keithsburg. 

During the fall and winter of 1866, he was Ass't Engineer 
of surveys and other work on the Union Pacific Railroad in the 
Rocy Mountains. He was construction engineer of the Sibley 
bridge across the Missouri River, and a bridge across the Miss- 
issippi River near Fort Madison. 

Subsequently he was connected with E. L. Corthell in gen- 
eral engineering work, with headquarters at Chicago, his prin- 
cipal work at that time being the construction of the joint en- 
trance of the Santa Fe and Illinois Central into Chicago from 
the West, together with improvements of the Chicago & Alton 
terminal entrance. Mr. Wallace also made examinations and 
Plans of various railroad projects and reported on plans and 
estimates for a bridge at New Orleans over the Mississippi 
River. Before this work was completed, Chicago was giving 
thought to the World's Fair. The Illinois Central had a ser- 
ious problem in how to handle the traffic that would result 
from the Fair, and Mr. Wallace's suggestion to the management 
of the Illinois Central resulted in his being retained by that 
railroad as Chief Engineer to plan and put into execution the 
suburban service which so successfully handled the World's Fair 
crowds ever since been an important factor of transportation in 
Chicago. The elevation of tracks in the City of Chicago and 
the Lake Front improvement were not only under Mr. Wallace's 
general supervision, but he also assisted in the negotiations 
with the City which made this work possible. He also const- 
ructed extensive terminals in the City of New Orleans, planned 
and constructed the Stuyvesant Docks at New Orleans and exten- 
sive terminals at Harahan Yards, near New Orleans; also the 
improvement of terminals at East St. Louis, Louisville and 
Memohis. 

In the fall of 1897, Mr. Wallace resigned as Chief Engineer 



271 

of the Ill-Cent. Railroad to accent th*> -Position of the Vlce- 
Pres. and Gen. Msr. of the I'athlson AT'-all Vorks, of Saltvlllo 
Va., and while in that caoacitv was =>ros. of a orooospd rail- ' 
road known as the SaltviLle and Virfinla •'ailroad. 

He returned to the Ill-Cent. Railroad, Jan. I, 1SQ'\ na 
Ass't Second Vice-President, with general suoervlsion over th»» 
eneineerint^ den't and of natters connected vit^ the ooeration 
of the system. DurinR this tirre he had oersonal charge of the 
construction of the Fort Dodtre -"-x CNaha '.ailropd, fZ -niles in 
lenp.th, which pave the Ill-Cent, an entr-irce into . -naha .••nd 
Council Bluffs. Sent. 1902, he was amointed Generp.l r'anager 
of the Illinois Central R-ilroad. 

In 1904, he left the service of t'^^ Ill-Cent, to \ t^co-rt^ 
the first Chief Engineer of the Panama Cannl. > found tr^ere 
an obsolete, inadequate nlant which had to be scraooed and the 
work started anev; fron the vnrv teriminr, r> returned from 
the Isthmus in 190*^, an after ?. short oeriod of rest was re- 
tained by the Chicaeo .Si \'orth\.'estem and conceived and dost-ned 
the new oasseneer terminals for that railwav in Chicar-o. Short- 
ly thereafter he went to ..'ew York to become chairman and l;>ter 
President of '.'estinphouse, Church, l^err i Co., one of the lar- e 
eneineerinp organizations in the ccuntrv. --or over ten vears 
he directed the /activities of that comoanv. :-:is residence in 
New York broueht him in direct contact with the threat financial 
problems of the country, and his counsel wa 5? frenuentlv soueht 
on many matters outside the realm of ene ineerins. for the last 
five years, '-'r. 'Wallace has been a member of the Committee on 
Harbors and Shiminp of the Chamber of Commerce, St. of N'. Y. 

During the late war, ^■T'l I, he served as a member of the 
Transoortation Committee of the "'ational -Petroleum Advisory 
Board. In 1913, he was retained bv the Citv of Chicago in an 
advisory caoacitv in connection with the west side I'nion Station. 
The work done in this connection laid the foundation for the 
establishment in 1914 of the Chicago Rv. Terminal Commission, 
with Mr. Wallace as Chairman. During this time, in addition 
to working out the Union Station ordinance, he was sucressful 
in bringinc to a final conclusion, throuP'h his "reat abilitv 
to harmonize conflicting hum.an interests, the 1 1 1- Cent. Lake 
Front ordinance, after thirtv vears of discussion of this oro- 
blem of Chicar'o. 

At the time of his death, '-;r. \allnce was in Vashlneton 
attending hearinss of the Senate Comm.ittee on Interstate Com- 
merce in connection with the ."^oard of Economics and engineer- 
ing recently formed by the [N'ational Association of railroad 
security holders. 

Witness his advice to the l9lf eraduatinr class of 
Konmouth College: "::y first advice to you would be to cultivate 
friends. Begin with vour oi-m family circle and let your friend- 
shios extend to include your neighbor, vour citv, vour state, 
your country - and finallv broaden it out to include and em- 
brace humanity. Other thin'^s beine equal, the measure of vour 
success will deoend uoon vour f riendshios . " And surelv as he 
lived the above, he lived also this advice: "Cultivate a will- 
ingness to serve others, regardless of time, olace of circum- 
stances, not measuring vour services oound for oounri , as for 
comnensation, but let the measure of what vou eive be over- 
flowing. "

TVHO'S '-r-TO IN SOUTH DAKOTA, 3y 0. V. Coursey, 

Oct. 11, 1924. 

Rev. Dr. Williarr. Wallace (1356-1940) 

About two years ago when the enemies of the old- line 
orthodox faith began ass^xilinf? the virgin birth of Christ 
and other ooints of controversy in the Bible, one bis out- 
standing oreacher began going ut) and down this youne state 
of ours oouring forth torrents of eloquence, advisin.^ all who 
heard him to remain steadfast in their faith - the faith of 
their fathers - and to cling to the basic tenets of religion, 
the virgin birth, the insoiration of the scrioture, the re- 
surrection, the ascension. His name is Dr. William Wallace, 
and he hails from Sioux Falls. He is a nowerful oreacher, 
one who has thought his faith clear through, one who has 
oreachr^dit and lived it for so many years that it has become 
a vital Dart of his very being. 

Dr. Wallace came from a nrominent American family. His 
father was the first president of Monmouth ColleEe at Monmouth, 
Illinois, a Presbyterian institution. He held this nosition 
for 21 consecutive years. During this tim.e he was twice el- 
ected president of the National Education Association, one of 
the highest honors that can come to a school man. He was also 
president of the Pan- Presbyterian Convocation which convened 
in Philadelohia. 

William was born in the same house in V7hich his mother 
was born in New Concord, Ohio. He was only six weeks of aze 
when the family moved to Monmouth, Illinois. Here the bov 
finished the school work of the grades and then entered Mon- 
mouth College, graduating with the Class of 1378. Tx-^o years 
later he took his Master's deeree at Monmouth and in 1912 the 
same institution conferred uoon him his D. D. After graduat- 
ion, he first became a teacher and was elected nrincioal of 
the Academy at Savannah, Ohio. Later he served for several 
years as president of Norfolk College at Norfolk, Virsinia. 

However, the call of the ministry was ever uoon him; and 
so, in the later eighties, he gave un teaching and took uo 
preaching. He never regretted the Cihange and to him the min- 
istry is the outstanding, all absorbing profession of pro- 
fessions. He has succeeded well at it, too, succeeded because 
he loved his work, because he fitted into it; he's no sauare 
pee in a round hole, he is four-square man in a four- square 
job, and he fills it to overflowing. 

During his long successful experience he held pulpits at 
Metz, Lisbon, Bellaire, Ohio; Calumet, Michi ;an; Cambridge, 
Illinois; Hawarden, Iowa; Creston, Ohio; Sioux Citv, Iowa, and 
Parker, South Dakota. 7or the past eleven years he has been 
superintendent of Presbyterian >!issions in the southern half 
of South Dakota, serving 26 churches. During this time, there 
has been organized in his district 1^ new churches; there have 
been built 13 new church buildings ranging in value from S3000. 
to $25,000, and nine new manses in which to house the preachers 
and their families. He is raoirilv helping to bring the South 
Dakota Presbyterian churches to a self- supporting basis.

Autobiography of David Findley Bonner, AM, DD. 
I was born in Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio, April 2, 1842. 
We attended the Associated Presbyterian Church, Father's 
younger brother, John, was pastor at the time. It was a 
country church and has long since been disbanded. While there 
my mother died. 

In early 1851 we moved to New Concord, Ohio. It was my 
mother's early home; Muskingum College being located there, it 
would give an opportunity for the education of the children. 
My half-sister, Mary Findley Lorimer, acted as mother to us 
young children, and we almost worshipped her. 

I graduated from Muskingum College in 1860. I had a desire 
to go south and teach, but it was too late. Passions were too 
high. I taught near home for the next two years, and 
attended the theological seminary in Xenia, Ohio; the next two 
years at the seminary in Allegheny, Pa. I was licensed in 
April, 1864. I preached during the summer in the Presbytery 
in Iowa and preached for four months. I returned home and in 
April, 1865, I married Mary Smith and we went back to Knox- 
ville, Iowa, where I had been called as pastor. In 1970, 
I returned east and settled in Caledonia, N. Y. afterwards 
serving churches in Goodwill, Florida, and Endicott, all in 
New York State. (This was received from Mrs. W. H. Herron. )
