(Fkom a late English Writkr.) 

"The long-descended squire of earlier days had no paltry snobbery. His 
younger sons followed honest trades without shame: his brother, the London 
merchant, visited him all unknowing that commerce was a grease spot on the 
pedigree. The great interest of the shire is not in the titled houses, but in 
the plain landed gentry, honorable tradesmen and skilled artisans. The new 
genealogy is a li\ing instrument : it may uphold or cast down pretentious 
pedigrees : but it suggests possibilities of honorable descent for the unrecog- 
nized Commoner."

Preface to New Edition 

An authority on the subject has written, "The Subject of Genealogy or 
Family History is one of great and increasing interest to a large portion of 
our citizens; it meets a desire of our human hearts to know from whence we 
have sprung and the relation we bear to our fellow mortals. No virtuously 
disposed mind can look back upon a long line of venerable ancestors without 
feeling his motive to an honorable career strengthened." 

It is also to be noted with great satisfaction that the desire to be con- 
nected back to a line of royalty has been supplanted by the fact that an ances- 
try of brain and brawn as found in the substantial ranks of a virtuous people 
furnishes an honorable basis of satisfaction and enduring pride. 

With due appreciation of the very general interest of the various mem- 
bers of "the family." it yet still seems best to mention as valued co-operators in 
the work Gilbert Cope, Genealogist, of West Chester, Pa.; Prof. William T. 
Lyie, of the Lafayette College. Pa. : ^latilda Jacobs, of Aurora. X. Y.. and 
Hon. Geo. E. Chamberlain, late Governor and now U. S. Senator of Oregon, 
as having furnished especially valuable data. With the correction of errors, 
the addition of new data and the improvement in illustrations there is indulged 
a good hope for a fair measure of appreciation of the contents of the book."

It is the hope of the writer that the plan which has been followed is such 
that all can understand it, yet a few observations may be of service. The 
work has been divided into tico parts, in order to keep the lines of the Trim- 
bles in a more compact form, believing this will give the best satisfaction. 
The children of each family will be found in regular order by the number of 
their parents in the succeeding generation. The maiden names, when ob- 
tained, are given, to show the family connections. The occupation and ad- 
dress always refer to the husband when the numbered name is a married wo- 
man, and in other cases to the numbered name, unless specially stated. When 
a small figure thus ^'^ is attached to the right of a name, it indicates that the 
person belongs to that generation. 


■ Ch. or ch. for child or children. 
b. for born. 

d. for died. 

M. or m. for married, 
unm. for unmarried. 

dau. for daughter. 

The usual terms of Xo. for number, mo., Jan., Feb., etc. for the months, 
are adopted to economize space, as are also Mtg. for meeting-house, twp. for 
township, etc. 


As a fitting frontispiece to this work a view of Concord Friends' Meetinghouse 
is presented. Concord Meeting was established in connection with one at Chichester very 
soon after tlie arrival of William Penn and his Colonists in 1682. They came to estab- 
lish a State and set up the "Holy Experiment" of a government on the basis of Peace. 
The first official record of the meeting is 17th of First month (March O. S.) 1G84; the 
meetings being held for some time at the houses of Friends until they could afford to 
build their meeting house 

The first land for the meeting house and grave yard was conveyed as follows 
(See also accompanying illustration)

The nature or any description of these original buildings has not been discovered. 
In 17i?8 a brick meeting house was erected; which stood until 17S8 when it was at least 
partially destroyed by fire. The present building was then erected being considerably

"The name — Concord— was probably bestowed on this locality by the first setlera 
as illustrative of their harmonious feelings." — Smith History of Delaware Co. Pa. Here 
they worshiped according to ihe dictates of their own consciences; here their love-vowa 
were fulfilled at the marriage altar; and close by, in the graveyard which is immediately 
back of the house, lies the dust of 

"Brave hearts that dared the lough broad seas 

For homes and freedom in the wood- 
Strong arms that felled the giant trees, 

And tilled the earth where once they stood. 

"They came not here to carve a name 

On Honor's tablet high and grand: 
Their humble works, unknown to Fame, 

Still live and bless their chosen land. . , 

"To that young land their needful aid - ^ . 

Helped to achieve results sublime, i,:. 

And each progressive step they made 

Has left Its mark for com ins: time. 

"Their duties were their chief desires. 

Their faith no narrow creed confined; - 

And we inherit from such sires 

Full right to freedom of the mind. 

"And where they sleep small flowers bloom. 

That scarcely catch the passer's gaze: 
It was their wish no flaunting tomb 

Should be emblazoned with their praise."— JACOB PAINTER. 

In the work herewith presented the author has not preceded the settlement of 
Pennsylvania, excepting by an occasional note that has fallen into his hands, or to 
discover the origin of some of the principal surnames connected with its progress. It 
may be proper to observe that the cause of this is owing to the lack of positive records 
and difficulty in obtaining correct information; and so, with the materials at hand, I 
proceed to their arrangement. 

The word Palmer as a surname traces its origin from the time of the Crusades in the 
twelfth and thirteenth c<^ntu:ies. The emblem of supriorlty or triumph had for a long 
time become associated v/ith the palm tree. It is said, from its peculiar nature of regain- 
ing its tnie position after being bent or pjessed out of shape. See Webster Dictionary 
Definition 5. The evidence of its emblematic nature may be seen by reference to a 
few passages from the Bible 

In relation to the Feast of Tabernacles (Leviticus xxili. 40): "And ye shall take 
you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and boughs of 
thick trees and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven

one, probably having a view of their return to the Land of Promise, in the twelfth verse

After visiting the Holy places they embarked for Italy, but only a remnant of two 'thous. 
and arrived safely in their native land. Ingulphus a secretary of William the Conqueror 
was a companion of this pilgrimage; he observed that 'they sallied from Normandy thirty 
stout and wel appointed horsemen, but that they repassed the Alps twenty m serable 
palmers with the stati in their hand and the wallet at their back ' " 

With these records of derivation it is easily perceived that there could be no com- 
mon patriarch to many of the various families of the name that now exist; therefore 
though the name may often figure in the records of the Old World, it will require the 
mcsc definite proof to connect their Transatlantic relationship. 

Besse records the name a few times in his "Sufferings of the Quakers" from 
which I extract: ^.^wiu 

r^ r a u'-^° ^u^!' T^omas Palmer and Richard Mills, coming to a meeting in Banbury 
Oxfordshire, had two mares taken from them valued at £5." 

"In 1659, Thomas Palmer and two others were subpoenaed into the Exchange at 
the suit of John Dyke, a priest, for tithes, valued at 14s.: they appeared accordiuglv 
but refusing to swear to their answer, were imprisoned for contempt in a low dungeon 
at Warwick, twenty steps deep, where the said Thomas Palmer lay ten months." 
.,.v. '^P ^^^^' ^°^^ Palmer and others committed close prisoners to the Bottom in 
Aldburgh, for frequenting meetings at Ipswich, Suffolk." 

"In Buckinghamshire seventeen persons, including one Thomas Palmer were 
taken out of a meeting by soldiers and carried to justices, who, upon their refusing to 
swear, sent them to prison." 

"In 16G4 Ezekiel Palmer of Cambridgeshire had seven cows taken wonh *''2 
for nonconformity to public worship." 

"In London this year there died in Newgate, or by sickness contracted there 
twenty-five persons— viz., John Clark, John Wilkinson. John I^wis, William Tomkins' 
John Hales, Robert Twynn, Henry Haster, Joseph Stonehouse, Marv Draper John Pal- 
mer. John Cooke, Edward Biker, Andrew Andrews, John Wildbore, Richard Twynn 
Mary Davis, George Hide. Hannah Cooke, Mary Mile, Henry Woodward, Richard Aud- 
ley, Mary Travers, Roger Evans, Hannah Drury and Benjamin Greenwell. When the 
relations of some of the deceased desired their bodies in order to bury them. It was not 



granted; but they were privately interred in the ground belonging to the gaol, that their 
deaths might be concealed as much as jiossible from the observation of the people." 

In the chancel at Snoland in Ktnt, where Thomas Palmer, who married the 
daughter of Fitz Simon, lies buried, is the following epitaph: 

"Palmers all our faders were 
la Palmer lived here 
And travelled still, till wud age 
I ended this world's pilgrimage 
On the blest Ascensian day 
-^^ In the cheerful month of May 

A thousand with four hundred seaven 
I took my journey hence to heaven." 

Bailey in "Clark's Introduction to Heraldry," thus defines the difference between 
a palmer and pilgrim: "A Pilgrim had some dwelling-place, a Palmer none; a Pilgrim 
travelled to some certain place, the Palmer to all; the Pilgrim must go at his own 
charge, the must profess poverty, whether real or willful; the Pilgrim might 
give over his profession, riut the Palmer might not." 

Burke's "Encyclopedia of Heraldry" describes forty-five coats-of-arms under the 
name of Palmer, one of which is herewith presented. It will Illustrate the range of 
thought in those times, even though it may have no connection with our family: 

On a few of them were mottoes, for example: 

"Par sit fortuna labori." 
Trans. — By labor there is fortune. 

"Palma Vlrtuti." 
Trans. — A palm to valor, i. e.. There is a reward to courage. 

"In Deo est mihi omnes fides." 
Trans. — All my trust is in God. 

In later times Lord Nelson had for his motto: ' ' 

i^ "Palmam qui merint ferat." v - . - 

Trans. — Let him who has won it bear the Palm. 

The name early found recognition in literature. Chaucer uses it in The Prologia* 
to the Canterbury Tales. 

"When that Aprilis with his showers swoot, 
"The drought of March has pierced to the root, 

"When Zephyrus eke with his swoote breath ' " , 

"Inspired hath in every grove and heath 

"The tender croppes. ♦****« 
•■ ■ "Then longe folks to go on pilgrimages 

'•^''' ' "And palmers for to seeke strange strands 

"To feme hallows couth in sundry lands; 

Prom Spencer's "Fairie Queene we extract — Piook 2. Canto 1 — 
"Him als acompany'd upon the way 

"A comely Palmer clad in black attire; 
Of ripest years and hairs all hoarie gray 

"That with a staff his feeble limbs did stire 
"Lest his long way his aged limbs should tire,

Extract fiom "The Palmer" by Felicia Hemans — 

"Art thou come from the far-oiT land at last? 

"Thou that wandered long! 
"Thou art come to a home whence the smile has passed, 
"With the merry voice of song. 

"Say what hast thou brought from the distant shore 

"For thy wasted youth to pay? 
"Hast tho\i treasures to win thee joys once more? 

"Hast thou vassals to smooth thy way? 
"I have brought but the palm branch in my hand 

"Yet I call not ray bright youth lost! 
"I have won but high thought iu the Holy Land, 

"Yet I count not too dear the cost! 
"I look on the leaves of the deathless tree 

"These records of my track; 
"And better than youth in its flush of glee 
"Are the memories they give me back! " ^- 

"A rich light thence o'er my life's decline, 

"An inborn light is cast; 
"For the sake of the palm from the Holy Shrine 

"I bewail not my bright days past." 

Savage in his "Genealogical Dictionary of New England" gives an account of a 
great number of Palmers who settled in that region, and who doubtless are the progeni- 
tors of many of the name scattered through this country. Of whom the following may 
t>e mentioned as important — 

1. William Palmer who came from Nottinghamshire, England, in the ship Fortune. 
the second vessel after the Mayflower, iu ltji;i, landed at Plymouth and settled at Dux- 
bury, ^lass., and has left numerous de-cendants. 

2. Walter Palmer also from Nottinghamshire in 1629, landed at Charlestown Mass. 
He was one of the original setlers of that place. Afterwards he was one of the founders 
of Rehoboth, Mass.. in 1643; and of Southerton now Stonington, Conn., in 1633. He fmally 
settled at Wequetequook Cove where he had purchased a large tract of land, a short 
distance North East of Stonington and in Rhode Island, and in a nearby graveyard he 
and many of his family were buried. A view of his residence is herewith given. He 
was twice married and had twelve children whose descendants are very numerous. He 
was an influential man in his day both in State and church affairs and many of his 
descendants have been persons of talent and distinction. A re-union of the family wa3 
held at Stonington Conn, in ISSl and again in 1SS2 of which an interesting Book was 
published by Noyes F. Palmer of New York. 

3. Thomas Palmer from Bradford, England, came in the ship Expectation in 
1635 and founded the town of Roxley, Mass. 

4. A Lieutenant William Palmer was made a freeman at Yarmouth, Mass., June 
7, 1638. He afterwards settled on Long Island. 

5. A William Palmer settled in Virginia at an early date and has many descend- 
ants through the Southern States. 

6. A Thomas Palmer from Kelso, Scotland, in 1790 settled in Philadelphia, Pa., 
where theie are yvt his descendants. 

7. In the purchase that gave the name Nine Partners to a locality in Dutchess 
County New Yoik, there was one partner to that extensive undertaking named Mathew

Palmer who came from Nottinghamshire. Ergland. to New York In 1720. From 
accounts he appears to have been a F'rit^ml (or Quaker). His descendants are numer- 
ous, among: which were said to Iv? John I^ilmcr and his sister Catharine Palmer Foulke, 
of Stroudshurg. Pa., who were influential mini.^ters In the Society of Friends. 

8. An Anthony Palmer was jiresidont ot" the Provisional Council of Pennsylvania 
and ex-officio governor from May o, 1747 to Nov. 2.*'., 174S. He was a gentleman of 
wealth and had come to this colony from the West Indies in 17(t8. He was married and 
some of his descendants are said to still reside in Philadelphia. (See Armor Lives of 
the Governors of Pennsylvania.) 

9. One name that would be noarly contemporary with the subject of this work 
has this to his record. "John Palmer born 1^67, son of John of Situate, son of first 
John of Situate and Hingham. Mass., who camo to this country In ship Klizabeth In Sep- 
tember 163r>. He was probably a brother to 'Ihomas of Poxley. Mass. (See No. 3 of 
these notes.) Both of these hav* a large progeny scattered over this country. 

10. There were also setlers of the name in New Jersey. Smith In his history of 
the state, mentions a John Palmer of Slaien Island having with others made a settle- 
ment on the Raritau about the Falls, and that "John Palmer was appointed by Deputy 
Governor Rudyard as one of six persons whom he a])pointed as a council for East 
Jersey, In which he was continued till lijS4, when a new council was appointed." The 
six names thus appointed were: Lewis Morris, John Berry, John Palmer, William 
Sanfford, Lawrence Andros and Benjamin Price. 

11. As another contemporary with John Palmer, the immigrant to Concord, there 
lived in London Samuel Palnier, an eminoni printer, in whose office Benjamin Franklin 
was one time eniployed. He died in 1732. And later in the eighteenth century fig- 
ured John Palmer, an actor of very considerable talents belonging to the Drury Lane 
Theatre, bom about 1742. In his profession he excelled. He died suddenly on the stage 
immediately after uttering the words, "There is another and a better world." 

12. There arrived in Penns\!vania about 1684, John and Christian Palmer in the 
ship Providence of Scarborough, Robert Hopper master, and settled in Bucks county. 
Pa. No known relationship existed between these and the Concord settler, and as 
there has never appeared any tradition concerning an affinity, it is highly probable 
they sprang from distinct families in the mother country. 

13. There were numerous settlements of Palmers in the lower part of the State 
of Delaware, a descendant of which was the late Maj. Gen. William Palmer of Colorado 
Springs. Colo., a noted Cavalry General of the Civil War. 

With the hope that these "Incidentals" rnay prove of Interest to the readers for 
want of further space they will have to suffice.

Palmer Division 


^^'ith an appreciation of the rich inheritance attached to the name — Palm- 
er — some^vhat sho\vn in the foregoing "Incidentals," and to be found in 
many other vahiable accounts; and with a desire that the name shall always 
be duly cherislied and i>erpetuated, the genealogy is herewith presented of the 
descendants of JOHN PALMIER, who settled in Concord township, Chester 
(now Delaware) county, Pa., previous to or about 1686. 

I— I. JOHN PALMER, b. in England: d. 1742. Concord, Pa.; m. 
MARY SOUTHER Y, dau. of Robert, of Bethel, b. ; d. 1745. 

A general tradition exists that John Palmer was either enticed or be- 
guiled to leavi the home of his mother in England (his father being dead) 
by those interested, to pay his way for the profit to result from his labor (a 
custom somewhat in vogue at that time), and that he embarked from London 
and came to Pennsylvania, where he served a number of years at labor for 
his passage. No authentic records have been found to corroborate this tradi- 
tion, but as it is very generally upheld by the elder members of the family, and 
as no other account is to be found as to his appearance in this country, it seems 
safe to give it a place in his history. This class of emigrants were called "Re- 
demptioners." Although he had evidently been in the neighborhood (as will 
appear by records given further on, in the year 1686.) yet the first reliable ac- 
count that appears of his permanent settlement is the purchase of one hundred 
acres of land of the patent for which a copy will be given. 

This tract was first surveyed 7 mo. 4. i6S^. to William Hawkes on rent. — 
it was afterwards occupied by Gideon Gambare (or Gambel) and in 1685 by 
James Browne. It is not known that John Palmer had any dealings v.ith any 
of these to obtain possession of this tract, nor is it of material consequence as 
his patent fully perfected his title.

*^'''"'°|si£ed) WM MARKHAM JOHN GOODSONN. 

He had contracted his marriage previous to this time as the following 
records will show, although no definite record of it has been preserved. He 
married Marv Sudderv (Southery) who was a daughter of Robert Southery, 
fuller bv trade, late of Westburv in the county of Wiltshire, England. Rob- 
ert was' the purchaser of two InuKired and fifty acres of land in Bethel and 
Thornbury bv deeds bearing date tlic tenth and eleventh days of October. 1682. 
and probablv resided on the Bethel tract. He died before 16S6; who his wite 
was or even her Christian name does not appear, the only clue being that 
Robert Sotithery and John Gibbons were brothers-in-law. Mary Sotithery 
Palmer had a sister. Margery, who married John Hannum. They also settled 
in Concord about a half a mile north of John Palmer. They were the only 
children and after their father's death they, with the co-operation of their 
husbands, disposed of his late possessions. These facts in relation to them 
are established bv the following extracts from the court records and deeds. _ 

In the records of the court proceedings held at Chester. Pennsylvania. 
4th mo. 1686. (on file in the Clerk of Court's office at West Chester. Pa.) 
it is noticed that a road is laid out from Bethel to Chichester 60 feet wide: 
beginning at the side of Concord toward the river on the street or highway 
of Concord: First, through land of John Gibbons, his house on the right 
side; then through land of Robert Southery. late deceased, his house on the 
left side; then through land of Robert Pile, his house on right hand, etc. 
From this it is reasonable to assinne that Robert Southery had built a house 
and resided upon this land and had lately deceased. 

This land appears to have been a part of 5CX) acres of the John Gibbons 
tract taken up by deeds of lease and release August 1-2. 1681. and conveyed 
to Robert Southery, his brother-in-law. by deed of same tenor. October lOii, 
16S2. It was surveyed November ij, 16S3. as 150 acres, and to make up the 
deficiency to 250 acres. John Gibbons on the same date conveyed to said Rob- 
ert Sotitiicry Too acres in Thornbury. By reference to the court records un- 
der date of 7 month \G%(\ this latter tract was disposed of as followeth : 
"John Palmer and John Hannum. by and with the consent of their v/ives. 
Mar>' Palmer and Margcr}- Hannum, made over a deed for 100 acres of 


land lying and l>€ing in t!ie township of Concord (Thornbury) to Edward 
Bennett, his heirs and assigns." This is conclusive evidence of their respec- 
tive marriages previous to this date. As to tlie Bethel tract, the records show 
that a deed was given by the .same persons, dated the ist day of the ist month 
(March). i68S. to Nicholas P}le. for 150 acres of land in Bethel. To confirm 
the title of these lands a l\qc(\ of release dated the 31st day of December. An. 
Dom. 171 5. between John Palmer, yeoman, and Mary his wife, and John Han- 
num, yeoman, and Margery his v.ifc. all of the township of Concord, county 
of Chester. Province of Pennsylvania, of the one part, and William Brinton. 
yeoman, of Birmingham, of the other part: in which it is fully set forth that 
"Robert Suddery in his lifetime became lawfully seized in his Dcmeasn as of 
fee of in the sd Two hundred and fifty acres of land with the appurtenances 
and Dyed seized thereof in his estate aforesaid after whose Decease the same 
Two hundred & fifty acres of land with the appurtenances Descended & came 
to the sd ?^Iary and Margcr}- parties to these presents as the Daughters and 
only heir of him the said Robert Suddery." 

There is also a court record of 4 mo. 16S6 in Avhich is noted a difficulty 
between Nicholas Newlin. of Concord, and John Hannum and John Palmer, 
concerning a hog; and also that John Hannum was given an earmark and 
brand mark for his stock, which also shovs-s their residerice here at this time. 

It is likely John and Mary were Friends, for a time at least, for their 
older children appeal c„ co have a right of membership in the Society, which 
was not the case with the younger ones until taken into Meeting, as will be 
noticed under their names. But the facts and traditions relating to that per- 
iod indicate that they left the Society through the defection of George Keith. 
a minister, who went oft because of non-agreement in doctrine, and that they 
soon after joined the Baptists. By records of the Baptist Society, which were 
in the possession of the late Robert Frame. Esq.. of Birmingham, it appears 
that on 6 mo. loth. 1607. Thomas Powell. John Palmer, etc., five in number 
were baptized : also on 7 mo. 27,1697. John Hannum. Margery Hannum. Mary 
Palmer, etc.. ten. in number, were baptized — all in Ridley Creek. 

On the return of Keith from England, whither he had gone soon after 
his schism, he records preaching at John Hanon's (Hannum's) in Concord. 
2 mo. 9, 1702. on the text ^Matt. xvi. 18. ar.d on the nth he preacb.ed at 
Thomas Powell's, and states that both these men were formerly Quakers, to- 
gether with several of their neighbors. In Smith's '"History of Delaware 
Count}'" it is noticed that there \vere quite a number in Concord who adhered 
to Keith. These facts seem to point quite definitely to their religious posi- 
tion, but their children seem not to have gone with them (or at least those of 
whom the records have come down to us), but to have continued members of 
the Society of Friends. 

Of the birth of either John or Mary nothing is known, but from the date 
of their marriage, and being no doubt in the bloom of manhood and woman- 
hood, we may reasonably conclude they came upoti this earth between 1660 
and 1670. They continued to reside upon the land he had purchased all their 
lives, but as to the nature of their dwelling-house, hi-tory seems to be silent. 
The present dwelling (see illustration) was enlarged by his grandson Moses, 
and is probably very nearly upon the original site. 
, An incident is preserved relating to Mary, that she drove a bear away

from a chestnut tree with a fire-poker orpoking-stick; and Stephen Hall. who 
died 7 mo. 26, 1815, at an advanced age, used to boast tliat he had ^een '^ix

was a httle white-headed Englishman, but he remembered his wife bette- 
tor she once gave him a piece of bread aiul butter.

II— 2. JOHX PALMER 2 (John i). b. al)out the year i6<>o. but the 
exact date does not appear. He was known by tlie appellation ot John Palm- 
er, Junior, and it is a traditional story that being- an only son his parents 
were fearful that their name might become extinct, as was the fate of his 
mother's: but subsequent events no doubt relieved their minds on this score. 
He m. Martha Yearsley 4 mo. (June O. S.) 9, 1714, dau. of John and Eliza-

hence crossed the ocean quite young with her parents. Thev brought a fam- 
ily of five children, to wit: a son John (who m. Sarah Conwav in 1710) and 
four daughters: Elizabeth, who m. Moses Key 12 mo. 18. 1701: Martha as

25. 1728. The land on which they settled was part of a tract of 1350 acres 
surveyed to John Simcock in 1684: John Yearsley purchased 500 acres of 
this by deed of 4 mo. 10. 1701. and John Yearsley. Jr.. obtained 254 acres 
i_mo.. 27. 1710. probably in the settlement of his father's estate. Portions 
of this land have remained in the family name until the present time (1900).

They remained in good standing in the Society all their lives, and their 
names frequently occur in the business of the [Meeting, especially as witnesses 
to numerous marriages. 

John followed the occupation of farming, at first on the farm be- 
queathed by his father, and subsequently on land purchased by him in the 
western part of Concord. (See map.) This tract of land, containing one 
hundred and seventy-five acres, he purchased of Henry Peirce and Sarah his 
wife by deed bearing date the 9th day of the oth month, A. D. 171 2. it being 
part of a tract of 500 acres surveyed to John Hazelgrove 8 mo. 5, 1683. from 


him it passed to Jeremiah Collet. Jr.. by deed of May 30-31. 1701 ; from him to 
Thomas and William Woodward. Ma\ 13. 1703: from them to Jasper Yeates 
May 5. 1709. and from him to Hcnr)- I'earce. Jan. 10. 1710. — See Smith's 
Map of Early Grants, etc. 

They probably did not remo\e to this situation until after the marriage 

of tlieir son Moses: as we find that in 17.1.8 they ,c:a\e tlie home-place to their 

son Moses by deed of gift, statin^'- the act to be from "the natural love and 

Affection they bear to him. as well as for his better preferment in the world."' 

A view of the old house and surrounding^ land is g^iven. 

John appears to have taken an interest in the affairs going on around 
him, and was one amongst others to be early concerned in schools. 

By his will, which is here annexed, it is apparent that of ten children 
which were born to him. only four were living when he made it. and that he 
either had given his two daughters a sliare of bis estate in his lifetime, as he 
had his son Moses, or thought that they did not need much.

Signed Sealed Published and Declared by the said John Palmer to ce his last will and 
Testament in the Presents of John Wilson William Walter Jo Hannum. 

He died 5 mo.. 1771, and was buried 5 mo. 3. 1771. B. Flawley in diary. 
near the graves of his paren.ts. .\ stOTie at the head of his grave bears the in- 
scription, "L P. 1771." Martha survived him a few years. Her most famil- 
iar name was "Patty Palmer." Rachel Arment, who died in 1855 in her 
95th year, remembered her quite well, and said she would often walk from one 
son's to the other's, a distance of two miles, when a very old woman. The 
time of her death is not recorded, but it probably happened before 1780. 


Their children were as follows, for further account see next genera-

II— 3. CATIIERIXE PALMER 2 (John i), the oldest dau; the rec- 
ords concerning her are very meagre. She. ni. Skears, but of her de- 
scendants I have been able to get barely a trace. The names of Hebart Sker 
and Rebecca Sker appear as witnesses 10 the marriage of William Trimble 
and Ann Palmer, and the names of Albertos Scare and Margaret Scare as 
witnesses to the marriage of James Trimble and Mary Palmer. It is reason- 
able to infer that at least Hebart and Albertos were her sons, and that Re- 
becca and Margaret were either daughters or daughters-in-law. This ends my 
research concerning her. 

II~4. EALS (Alice) PALMER 2 (John i), b. probably previous to 
1700, but no record of her birth or death been discovered. She m. Rich- 
ard Buftington about 1720 as his third wife, whom she survived. 

In 1679 RICHARD BOVEIXGTOX aixl John Grubb purchased a large 
tract of land on the southwest side of L'platul creek, of John Test, v.ho had 
obtained it from Albert Hendrix. which is n.otcd in the court records of Xo- 
vember 25, 1679. 

William Penn obtained a charter for the Province of Pennsylvania on 
the 4th of March 16S0 (1681 X. S. ) and on Sept. 13. 16S1. the'first court 
was held under the new dispensation. At that time RICHARD BL'FFIXG- 
lON appeared as a witness in one case, as a plaintiff in another and as a de- 
fendant in a third. He was a member of the Grand lurv. June 27th. 16S3.

court lield 6th of ist month 1687-8 lie was appointed "Constaple" for Chi- 
chester and it appears that a survey of 400 acres was made 7th month, 14th. 
1682 for Henry Hastings and Richard Buftington in Chichester township. 
He appears to have resided here for several years. When by a deed of April 
6, 1696, Ricliard Buftington and William Vestal purchased from the execu- 
tors of John Loftus a tract of 218 acres on the Brandy wine near its forks 
and by another deed of 6th month 2d. 1701, they purchased 218 acres more, 
the rest of the Loftus tract, and made division by \"estal taking the latter 
purchase, Richard But^ngton had settled on his part prior to the last date 
and was probably the first settler in what is now East Bradford township, 
though it was considered a i)art of Westown township until 1705, when Brad- 
ford was first organized. He was appointed constable for Westown for 1701, 
1702 and 1703. and was also supervisor of highways at the same time. In 
1 70S he purchased 210 acres from Thomas ^Martin, of Middletown, to the 
northward of his previous purchase, and after selling 100 acres to Nathaniel 
Ring, divided in 1721 a portion to each of his sons. Thomas and William, 
with a frontage to each on the stream. About this time he seated himself 
upon an unoccupied tract of over 200 acres immediately in the forks of Bran- 
dywine, upon which he erected buildings, probably under a lease or agreement 
with the owner. After his death his son Joseph purchased the land from 
Isaac Xorris, Esq., of Eairhill, Philadelphia, son of Isaac X^orris. who had in 
1 718 purchased it of Jacob Taylor, to whom it had been originally surveyed. 
It was here that he gathered around him his numerous posterity on an occa- 
sion thus referred to in the Pennsylvania Gazette of June 28 to Julv 5, 1739, 
and also noted in Watson's Annals of Philadelphia, to wit: "On the 30th of 
May past, the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Ricahrd Buf- 
fington, Senior, to the number of one hundred and fifteen, met together at his 
house in Chester county, as also his nine sons and daughters-in-law and 
twelve great-grandchildren in law. The old man is from Great Marie upon 
the Thames, in Buckinghamshire in Old England ; aged about S; years and 
is still hearty, active and of perfect memory." In religion, if ever a Friend, 
he afterwards became a Baptist and was present at the first Baptist organiza- 
tion in these parts in 171 5. and to this Sociey he bequeathed £20, as also 
£5 to its minister. Owen Thomas. However, some of his children and m.any 
of his posterity have been Friends or Quakers. He died in January 1747-8, 
when he must have been in his 94th year. 

Whether he was married before his arrival in this country is not known. 
The name of his first wife, Ann or Anne, is mentioned from 1689 to 1697-S. 
In 1710 and 17 12 a wife Frances joins him in conveyances and circumstances 
indicate that ^he was the widow of John Grubb. who died in Chichester in 
1708. His last wife was Alice Palmer, Xo. 4, of this work. She must have 
l)ecn much younger than he, and their inarriage occurred about 1720. Bv his 
first v.-ife there were ten children, none known by the second wife and three 
by his third wife. Of the latter. see next generation page . Of the first the 
following account is of interest because of their very numerous descendants.

II.— 5. MARJERY PALMER 2 (John i), b.- as nearly as can be de- 
termined about 1702. Her parents havii^.g left Friends' Meeting, she conse- 
quently was not a member, but at a monthly meeting of women Friends, held 
at Chichester Meeting-house "ye ist of ye 3 mo., 1724, John Gore fie Mar- 
jery Palmer declared their intention of Marriage ye first time, she producing 
a paper from her father signifying his and his wife's being willing she should 
proceed in marrying amongst Friends, she also Desiring to come under 
Friends' care. Hannah Oburn and Elizabeth Walter are to inquire &c." 

Women ]-Viends reported fa\orably and the marriage proceeded, but men 
Friends appear to have been a little negligent, as *"Those friends that were 
appointed to attend the marriage of John Gore and Marjery Palmer report 
through some occasion they were neither of them there, the which shortness 
is acknowledged, notwithstanding this meeting has received information that 
ye said marriage was accomplished orderly the 17th day of ye 4th mo. 1724." 

John lived but a short time after their marriage, and no records are to be 
found of any children. 

The next account of ^Marjery is, "At our Alonthly ^Meeting of Women 
Friends held at Concord ^Meeting house ist mo. 7, 1735, 

"Marjery Gore being a member for sometime of this meeting, but of 
late hath Entertained a man in her house and saith she is married to him by a 
Priest but Refuseth to tell ye time, and friends being with her but not Re- 
ceiving Satisfaction Edith Xewlin & Grace Eavenson are appointed with a 
man friend to give her another visit and if they tind occasion, to drav/ a Tes- 
timony against her and Produce it to ye next meeting." 

This was done, but not immediately carried into eftect. for "At our 
Monthly 2^Ieetin.g of Women Friends held at Concord ^vleeting House ye ist 
of ye 10th mo. 1735, 

"Marjery Gore or Carlin sent a paper which was no way satisfaction 
wherefore Aviary West & Grace Eavenson are appointed with a man friend to 
draw up a Testimony against lier and make report to ye next meeting." 

After a lapse of six years it appears — 

"At our ^Monthly ]^vleeting of Women Friends held in Concord meeting 
house ye 4th of ye nth mo. 1741, Marjery Carrel Produced a paper of ac- 
knowledgment for her outgoing, which this meeting accepts." 

Her husband's first name was Daniel, as "Daniel Carroll & ux }.Iargery 
relict and admr of John Gore," exhibit accounts of administration. 1736-7. 
He made his mark, and she signed Margery Carrell. The last of her where- 
abouts is thus determined : 

"At our Monthly Meeting of Women Friends held in Concord meeting 
house ye ist of ye i2mo. 174 1-2 Marjery Carrel Desires a fev.- lines by way 
of certificate in order to be joyned to a monthly meeting in the Jerseys, Mary 
Newlin and Rachel Pyle are appointed to enquire into her conversation & 
make report to the man friend appointed to draw the said certificate." 

In the men's meeting of the same date Moses Key is appointed to assist 
the women friends with the certificate; but her name on their records is 
si>elled "Carlin," and at the meeting held ist of ist month 1742. tlie certificate 
for Margery Carlin is approve;!. This is tlie last information concerning her 
that has been found.

The remaining two daughters of John and Mary Pahner — viz., Ann (No. 
6) and Mary (No. 7) — having married hrotlicrs — to wit. WiHiam and James 
Trimhle — it appears advisable to carry out the record of their descendants in 
a consoHdated form ; hence thev will be found in the Trimble Division.

child, but no record of her birth or death has been found. She was the 5th of 
seven ciriklren of Jolm Xewlin and ]\Iary Woodward, of }^Iiddletown (who 
were m. in 171 1.) John Xewlin, b. 12 mo. 2S, 1690: d. 1753; was also the 
5th of seven children of Xathaniel Xewlin and ]Mary Mendenhall (who were 
m. 2-17-16S5). 

His wife, :\Iary Woodward Xewlin, was the dau. of Richard and Jane 
Woodward. She survived him and d. 11-24-1790. aged loi years. It is a 
tradition in relation to her that she went out and reaped a sheaf of wheat the 
day s'le was one hundred years old.

brother and sister, John and Rachel. They came from Mt. ]Melick, County of

where the father took up 500 acres of land, which was surveyed 7-24- 16S3 
and for which he obtained a patent 3-1-16S5. It was resurveyed 2-2-1703 as 
552 acres, to his son Xathar.iel Xewlin. The mill thereon erected has on a 
stone built in the wall the inscription 

''Xathan'l and Mary Xczcliii, 1704." 

Some years afterwards William Trimble purchased land adjoining this 
tract on the sou:h. See Trimble Division, and see also Smith's Map 
of the Early Grants and Patents in Delaware Co.. Pa. Xathaniel 
Xewlin continued to reside on this plantation and was a prominent 
man both in the Society of Friends and in the community. He was for 
several vears a member of Provincial Assembly, a commissioner of property, 
a Justice of th.e county courts and a Trustee of the Loan Office of the Province. 
In 1724 he purchased a tract of 7.000 acres on the Brandywine to which was

riven the name of Xewlin township. }Ie m. a 2d wife. Mary Fincher, 2-17- 
1729, but only hved about a month thereafter. 

Of the 'immigrant Nicholas Xewhn, we find that his certificate from 
Friends in Ireland dated 12 mo. 25, 1682. expresses dissatisfaction with his 
removal for which he had given no satisfactory reason, "but our Godly jeal- 
ousy is that his chief ground is fcarfulness of sufferings here for the testimony 
of jesus, or coveting worldly liberty." He was described as a gentleman in 
easy circumstances. He was appointed in 1685 to a seat in the Provincial 
Coiincil and was also a Justice of the courts of Chester county. His conduct 
here showed him to be firm in the performances of duty under all circum- 

MOSES PAOIER m. second wife, ABIGAIL SHARPLESS, 11 mo. 
22, 1752, widow of William Sharpless, and mother by him of two children, 
of which one. Abraham, grew up and became an extensive landholder in As- 
ton and Concord. He died in 1835. See Sharpless record. 

In the proceedings relating to their marriage occurs the following: "At 
a monthly meeting 9 of 10 mo. 1752 Closes Palmer and Abigail Sharpless 
appeared and proposed their intentions of marriage. Caleb Peirce and Wil- 
ham Peters are to inquire as to his clearness relating to marriage and likewise 
to see that the widow's affairs are settled to satisfaction.'' Everything being 
satisfactory, they were allowed to proceed. 

At a monthly meeting 4 of 12 mo. 1752: "The friends appointed to at- 
tend the marriage of 2vIoses Palmer and Abigail Sharpless report that for 
reason satisfactory to this meeting they could not attend but have made en- 
quiry and fmd it was orderly accomplisl:ed in Concord meeting house and 
moderate at the house of entertainment." 

Abigail's maiden name was Sharp, dau. of Joseph Sharp and ^klary Pyle. 
of Chester co., b. 2 mo, 28, 1729; d, 2 mo, 14, 1805, surviving her husband 
over twenty years. 

Joseph Sharp was an emigrant from Ireland, Pie settled in London- 
grove, Chester county. Pa., where he d. in 1746. He m. ]\Iary Pyle, 9 mo. 4, 
1713. at Concord Mtg., who was b. 6 mo. 23. 1689. dau. of Nicholas Pyle and 
Abigail Bushell, Nicholas being an emigrant with his brothers, Robert and 
Ralph Pyle from the County of Wilts, England. 

In early life Moses Palmer appears to have been instructed in the mystery 
of cordwaining. but soon left it for the more congenial occupation of farming. 
He continued on the land obtained of his father in 174S for many years: he 
also purchased the adjoining tract on the south, to which he removed a few 
years before his death. He had acquired quite a considerable estate, which may 
be observed from the following extract from his will. From this instrument, 
dated 6 mo. 10, 1783, and proven August 27, 1783, the following is taken: — 

"Itam I give my beloved wife Abigail Palmer all my Parsonell Estate (except here

The following account of their marriage is taken from tlie records of 
Concord Monthly meeting: At a monthly meeting held at Concord 3 of 11 
mo.. 1746, "Complaint is made against Xathaniel Eavenson for h-eing married

Rev. L. H. A'lOrJacque, A\. A., we lind " In Languages of Teutonic origin when descent is iniplieJ merely

by a Priest. Caleb Peirce and Thomas Mercer are to pay him a visit and re- 
port how they find him." In women's meeting, same date. "Complaint is 
made against Elizabeth Palmer that was. now Eavenson. for accomplishing 
her marriage by a Priest. Lydia Mendenhall and Mary Pierce are to visit her 
and make report." At the next mectin.g, "2d of u mo., 1746, Nathaniel Eav- 
enson appeared hero with an acknow ledgment which is accepted and ordered to 
be read at the breaking up of a tirst-day meeting at Concord." In the wo- 
men's meeting "Elizabeth Eavenson's paper of acknowledgment joynt with 
her husband offered to this meeting, which is excepted (accepted) and left to 
men Friends for Publication." 

The descendants of Nathaniel and Elizabeth Eavenson being all through 
their daughters, it was with considerable difficulty that those given herein were 

Nathaniel became the owiier of a large tract of land in Thornbur}' and 
Westown townships, Chester co.. Pa., his deed calling for four hundred and 
fifty acres, but v.hich probably overran five hundred acres. He and Elizabeth 
resided thereon until his death. He made no will, an.d some time after his 
death his daugluers proceeded to liave the land divided among themselves, 
♦agreeably to the "advice of twelve of their friends." There were five of them 
at his death, but one appears to have died licfore th.e division, as only four of 
them are mentioned in the ^\•^itings. The deeds are dated 3 mo. 14, 1783, 
and set forth their object of giving to each sister a clear title to her share of 
the property. 

Before this time, Elizabeth, m. her second husband. ]\'iUia',n Hazclcy, both 
of whom agreed to the above .settlement of the property. She was his second 
wife. (His first having been Hannah Taylor.) The m. took place 10 mo. 12, 
1769, for which she was dealt with, by Concord Meeting for being m. by a 
Justice. She. however, made an acknowledgment 5 mo. 7, 1774. which was 
accepted, and died in membership with Friends. They were probably buried 
at Birmingham. No issue by tiieir marriage. William Hawley. a son of Ben- 
jamin and Dinah, the immigrants, b. 9 mo. (Nov.) 28. 1737; d. 6 mo. 2, 1826. 

Her children by first husband. Nathaniel Eavenson, were: —

(^. (no record); m. WILLIAM CHAMBERLIN 9 mo. 16, 1748, in Con- 
cord M.-H., son of John Chamberlin and Lettice Key, b. 11 mo. 24. 1724; d. 
(,ii.» record), probably 1S08 to 18 10. 

John was the son of Robert and Mary, b. 10 mo. i, 1692. The latter 


emigrated from England, and no doubt were "Friends." They purchased 
land in the northern part of Aston, near where is now Stony Bank Methodist 
meeting-house, and also in Concord adjoining it, and appear to have erected 
their dwelling-house in the latter twp.* 

The Concord tract of lOO acres was purchased 9 mo. 27. 1686, being part 
of Thomas King's land patented 5 mo. 22. 1684. Robert obtained a subse- 
quent patent for 251 acres in Concord and Aston, April 10. 1706. The Aston 
tract appears to have been occupied previous to him by Charles Brooke and 
Andrew Job. it being part of a tract of acres surveyed to Thomas 
Brassey in 16S4. John Chamberlin and Lettice Key were m. 10 m. (Dec. 
O. S.) 21. 1 72 1, in Concord Mtg. 

Lettice Key was the dau. of Moses Key and Elizabeth Yearsley (see No. 
2), b. II mo. 26, 1703. Martha's mother being a sister to William's grand- 
mother, it will be seen that they were what is known as first cousins once re- 

This was noticed by Concord Monthly Meeting, held the 3 of 8 mo.. 
1748. as follows, when they proposed their intentions of taking each other in 
marriage: "William Peters and Joseph Gilpin are to enquire into his clear- 
ness Relating to marriage as well as how he stands related in Consanguinity to 
her ye s'd Martha S: report to next meeting." At the next meeting, the 7 of 
9 mo., 1748, it may be supposed that some discussion took place in respect 
to their relationship, for "their s'd intention was allowed of by Permission 
they having consent of Parents and Relatives concerned." 

It seems probable that William and Martha continued to reside within 
the limits of Concord Meeting, but the place of their residence has not come 
to my knowledge, though he no doubt had a share of his father's property. 
They were buried at Concord. 

Their children were: — 

35. Moses, b. 1750; d. 

36. John, b. 1 mo. 6, 1752; d. 4 mo. 18, 1825.

nob'e houses and courts : his office was to take charije of the King's treasury and answers to the trea- 
surer of the household at present.— History of Names. 

t F'yle— The surname Pyle is claimed to be svnonymous with or derived from that of "Peel." 
meaning a fortified farm house. A Northumberland clan adopted this name with the spelling "Pyle'" 
as their surname.— History of Names.

that of Jolm's. She d. 12 mo. 20, 1802. Botli were buried at Concord Mtg. 

Joseph Pyle. b. 11 mo. 5. 1692: d. 1754. was a son of Robert Pyle and 
Ann Stovey. emigrants from Bishop's Canning. Wiltshire. England, m. there 
9 mo. 16. 1 68 1. Ann was the dau. of William Stovey of Hilperton. Sarah 
Gibbons appears to have been the widow of John Gibbons. Jr. ; her maiden 
name was Pennell. Robert Pyle was one of "three brothers.'' the others be- 
ing Nicholas and Ralph, all immigrants. They all became prominent citizens 
in their new country. Robert obtained a tract of 130 acres of land in Bethel 
May 1-2. 1683. upon wliich he resided until his death about 1730. Religious 
meetings were frequently held at his house and no other member was more 
active in church affairs.. 

John and Hannah Palmer resided on his father's farm in the western 
part of Concord, working in conjunction with his father while he lived, and 
after the lattcr's death he inherited it by his father's will. By tradition he 
is represented as fond of outdoor recreations and an enthusiastic disciple of 
Isack Walton. In 1S69. when I was making inquiries which led on to this 
work. I visited Thomas Dutton, a venerable centenarian of his neighborhood 
and in answer to the question whether he knew John Palmer (referring 
to this man), his immediate and animated reply was, "Yes. indeed: 
I went fishing with him many a time." John is said to have attained to the 
great weight of four hundred pounds, and is historically known as "fat John 
Palmer." It is probable that his disposition to obesity tended to shorten his 
life. Aaron Beale, a life long resident, of Concord, who was b. 3-1-1 786. and 
d. 1 2-3- 1 878. at the advanced age of 92 years, has related to the author that 
he remembered this John Palmer, that when a boy he had been to see him in 
company with his father and that he was the fattest man he ever saw. He 
made no will and letters of administration were taken out on his estate 5 mo. 
4. 1793. His farm eventually becoming the property of his sons Asher and 

Their children were (but the order here given is not certain) : — 

43. Asher, b. 1759; d. 5 mo. 20, 1817. 

44. Hannah, b. d. 2 mo. 25, 1803.

1748, of Isaac Xorris, the homestead of over 200 acres for £100. which evi- 
dently did not include the value of the improvements made bv his father. 
Here he lived at the time of the Battle of Brandywinc. which was near the 
ford on the east branch of that stream long known as Buffington's ford. He 
is described as being of a benevolent nature and often concurred to administer 
to the wants of the needy in his neighborhood. By his v.ill he devised his es- 
tate to his sister, Abigail Fling, and to her children and to the children of 
his deceased sister, Alice Hance.

2 mo. 18. 1753; d. 4 mo. 11. 1842, and sister to Benjamin (see No. 44.) They 
were considered a "sprightly young couple." And the evidence indicated that 
their wedding was of a hvely character as the Friends — Wilham Peters and 
John Brinton — who were appointed to attend the marriage reported "that it 
was orderh^ accomphshed and a good degree of moderation at the house of 
enteiiainment and where the youth appeared otherwise advice was adminis- 
tered." However, they soon settled down to the active duties of life, and were 
much esteemed in their neighborhood. 

John erected buildings on the eastern part of the original Palmer tract, 
which his father afterward gave him by will, and in connection with farming 
carried on the business of saddlery. His death appears to have been rather 
sudden, as he made his will 9 mo. 17. 1801. the day previous to his death. 
His widow survived him over forty years, continuing at the same place with 
her son John, who obtained the farm by his father's will. Both were buried 
nt Concord Friends' Grounds. By this will it appears: — 

I do give and bequeath unto my beloved wife Hannnh Palmer my sorrel mare, her 
choice of a cow, with their keep, various articles of furniture, what pewter we hare. 
the use of the west end of the hou-^e to be fixed up and kept in repair to make it a

Wilmington. Del., for themselves and three children. Margaret. Abraham and 
Robert. After which the meeting records seem to ha\e no further notice of 
jthem. His death, it is said, occurred in the following manner: He was work- 
ling in the garden, and being taken suddenly ill went into the house to pro- 
cure some medicine; in a mistake he partook of something poisonous, which 
paused his death in a short time.

Of Gilpin it Is related that he was an officer of the English army, but joined the Society 
of Friends after the battle of Worcester. September 3. 1651. He was detained in Oxford seven weeks 
for refusing to take an oath. He was fined ;<f20 for having a meeting held at his house -May 29. 1670. 
and for having another June 26. the same year, his house was broken' open by order of a Justice and all 
his household goods removed. In 1672 he was one of 15 persons liberated from O.xford jail by order of 
the King. 

^ He was a descendant through a long line of ancestry from Richard De Guloyn, to whom in 1206, 
uarir.g the reign of King John, the baron of Kendal! gave the .^\anor of Kentmere, for his achievement 
in slaying a wild boar, which infested the forests of Westmoreland and Cumberland. Though there is 
no document earlier than this account, the name is no doubt of Norman ori^n and came with or fol- 
lowed Vvilliam the Conqueror in 1016. The prefix Oe denotes this, and Giipin the name of a family 
^2^te in Norraandv, from which surnames were largely taken. The Saxon influence in time causing 
the prefix— De—to'be dropped.

No. 21). In regard to this m. we find that a complaint was made at Coi>l 
cord Monthly :\Itg. i mo. 6. 1790, that Hannali Martin, formerly Palmer, 
has accomplished her marriage by the assistance of a magistrate with one not 
in membership with us. She, however, made the following acknowledgment, 
which was accepted and she was retained in membership with Friends. 

"To Concord Monthly Meeting the 5th of 5th mo., 1790. ;.. ,, 

Dear Friends: . • • 

Whereas I through unwatchfulness or inattention to the dictates of Truth 
have so far gone out of the right way, as to accomplish my marriage with a man not 
belonging to our Society by the assistance of a Justice of the Peace, without the knowl- 
edge of my Parents; for all which conduct I am sorry and do condemn as inconsistent 
with the purity of Truth professed by us as a people, hoping by my future conduct 
to evidence the sincerity of this my offering and desire to be continued under the Chris- 
tiaoi care of Friends." 


Benjamin and Hannah resided in Aston Twp., where he inherited the 
land of his ancestors. He was distinguished as a public spirited man and suc- 
cessful fanner; he survived his wife within one day of forty years. They were

By his will dated 9 mo. 23, 1839, Joseph left his property to be sold and 
the proceeds to be equally divided amongst his children except son Samuel, to 
have $200, and daughters Sarah and Amy i^ioo each extra. Samuel and Sus-

hood of Concord and brought a certificate from Kingswood ^Itg., N. J., dated 
II mo. 14, 17S2, which was accepted by Concord Mtg. 4 mo. 9, 17S3, hence 
she was a resident here at the time of their marriage.

a farm and settled in Pine Grove, Eldred twp.. Lycoming Co., Pa., and fol- 
lowed farming. In her later years Anna v/as called "Aunt Nancy." They 
were buried at Quaker Hill. 

I have been unable to determine whether any relationship existed be-

made concerning it. but the projx^rtionate shares were so small that it did not 
pay to go to the expense of their collection.

citizen of this county for many years, died at Greeley on Saturday last, after 
a short illness, of congestion of the lungs. He was in the seventy-fourth 
year of his age. Mr. Welsh came to Kansas in June, 1857. and settled 
just west of Centropolis, Franklin Co., where he improved a farm. He after- 
wards removed to Minneola, and served as justice of the peace for several 
years. For the past few years he has been residing on a farm near Greeley, 
Anderson Co. Air. Welsh was for forty years an ordained preacher in the 
Methodist Church, but never took an appointment with any particular church. 
He had been a member of the ^Masonic fraternity for over fifty years. Every 
one who knew 'Father Welsh' respected him, for he was exceedingly kind- 
hearted, a consistent, conscientious Christian, who lived his profession day 
by day. He died in full assurance that he was going to a heavenly home."

He studied medicine and the following is from a published account of 
his life : 

Dr. E. M. Pyle located at Richmond in 1832, where he continuously 
(with the exception of one year at Mt. Pleasant, Iowa) and successfully prac- 
ticed his profession until the date of his death. He was a warm and intimate 
friend of the late lamented Edwin }*!. Stanton, and at the age of 60 years, 
through Mr. Stanton (who was then Secretary of War), he tendered his 
service as volunteer surgeon for the Union army. Mr. Stanton acknowledged 
this patriotic tender of his service in a letter in which lie stated that his age 
would probably preclude his active services in the field, but that as soon as 
an opportune opening w'as presented in a local hospital lie would be pleased to 
recognize his offer. He was a warm friend of the Union cause, and did every- 
thing in his power to strengthen the Union arms. Pie gave two sons to the 
Union army, Thomas H., of the 8th O. V. I., and Samuel M., of the 52nd 
O. V. I. (Dan ^.IcCook's regiment), whilst his eldest son, W. H. Pyle, M^ D., 
of Kaufman, Texas, whose family and interests were identified v/ith the 
South, joined the Confederate forces as Brigade Surgeon of Gen. Carter's 
Texas Cavalry Brigade. Dr. P\de was always in the front rank in matters 
pertaining to the advancement of education. His family consisted of ten 
children, four boys and six girls, viz : —

there the lightning struck the tree under which was the father, shattering the 
top limbs, passing down the trunk and tearing off the bark, until it reached 
Mr. P., w^hen it glanced off, striking him near the hips, passing downward, 
burning the skin on parts of his legs and feet, and prostrating him on the 
ground. His son hastened to his relief, took off his own shoes, and carried 
water in them to pour on and revive his father. Assistance was soon ob- 
tained, and he was conveyed to his home and carried to bed, his nervous 
system being entirely prostrated. Mr. Palmer is sixty-nine years old, and by 
no means a strong man. Hopes are, however, entertained of his recovery. —

mington, Del., newspapers at the time of his death : 

"For many years John Palmer was one of the lepresentative citizens of the Ninth 
Ward, and his dcatii caused general regret. He made an exemplary record as a business 
man, and had a high regard for the welfare of the city, state and nation. He had served 
the people well as a member of the Board of Public Education, had identified himself 
prominently with the interests of the church of his choice and raised a large family, 
which brought him much comfort in his declining years. The city is much poorer by 
losing such a good citzen. 

"Mr. Palmer was one of the oldest residents of the Ninth Ward and had the re- 
spect of all who knew him. He was born when the 9th Ward was known as Brandyv.-iue 
Village, then a separate town from. Wilmington. In early life he began to learn the 
trade of a tinsmith, but he developed such ability as a bookkeeper that he was given 
that position by his employer. He was afterwards bookkeeper at Price's and also at 
Lee's noted Brandywine flcur mills. After this he entered the grocery business with his 
half-brother Adam Grubb. In IStlS the firm of Grubb & Palmer was dissolved and Mr. 
Palmer bought the store at 1908 Market St., where he continued in business the rest of 
his life, a period of thirty-three years. He was a member of the Mechanics Lodge, I. O.

Church and later a member of St. Andrew's Church, which he maintained until his

Note. — The following is from the West Chester Local News, of Feb. 4, 1907. 


"This morning a quarter before five John Hall, who has been regarded as the 
oldest citizen of West Chester, passed away peacefully at his home on North Walnut 
street. He was the last remaining brother, and now there is but one remaining mem- 
ber of the generation, a sister, Mrs. Dickinson. 

"When the news was passed about among the friends and relatives, much interest 
was shown, for the aged citizen had seemed to belong to the people at'lar?e, so wide 
•was his reputation on account of his advanced years and the manner in which he re- 
tained his faculties long after the period when the average man gives up his hold on 
earthly affairs. 

"The deceased was born August 17th, 1797, and consequently had he lived until 
the 17th of August next he would have been 100 years of age. This longevity is character- 
istic of the family. His brother, Thomas W. Hall, reached the remarkable age of 101 
years, 1 month and 4 days. He died less than a year ago at the residence of his daugh- 
ter, Martha B. Seltzer, in Cnln township, this county. His sur\iving sister, Sarah," is 
the widow of Edward Heston Dickinson, and is now in her ;^5th year, and still' in the "en- 
joyment of good health. There was originally nine brothers and sisters — Edward, Malin, 
Thomas W., Isaac, John, Jane, William, Sarah and Ann. Edward, Jane and Williani 
all passed the age of four score. 

Matthew Hall, who came to this country in 1701, was the founder of the Hall family 
in America. He v/as the great-grandfather of John Hall and his brothers and sisters. 
The parents of John Hall were Malin and Mary Heston Hall, of Philadelphia, and in 
that city their children were born and reared. 

"John Hall learned the trade of a potter, but never followed it, feeling a distaste

for it when he became free. His father owned two farms in what was then Bleckley town- 
ship, Philadelphia county. .John took one of them and went Into the milk business, 
which he followed for a number of years, selling milk in Philadelphia. The farm prop- 
erty located within what is now the solidly built up part of the city grew rapidly valu- 
able, and Mr. Hall prospered in business. "When he retired from farming he was able to 
do so with a compet'='ncy. It is probably forty-five years since he quit farming and 
retired. About thirty years of t-hat time he has sp^nt in "West Chester. He, as well as 
all the members of his family, belonged to the Society of Friends. He was a thoroughly 
conscientious man, upright in word and deed, and commanded the respect and esteem 
of all who knew him. He was firm in his convictions of right, and could vigorously 
maintain an arg^iment in behalf of the cause he espoused. He was naturally of a benevo- 
lent character and took an interest in the young men. He was thoroughly posted con- 
cerning the affairs of the outside v.-orld. and took pleasure in marking the indications 
of Its advancement, even though no longer himself active in its business schemes. 

"He gave away many thousands of dollars in charities. He was largely instru- 
mental in the building of the Friends' Boarding Home in West Chester, furnishing 
much of the money for its erection. He assisted greatly, too. in the education of the 
freedmen of the South. His brother connected with the underground railroad, and 
in his younger days John Hall many times drove a wagon that conveyed fugitives from 
slavery on their way to freedom. It was largely his experiences in that connection that 
led him to contribute so liberally toward the education of the blacks in later years. 

"John Hall was in politics a "Whis: and afterwards a Republican and voted for every 
nominee for Presidesit of these partie.- from ISIS to his death. When James Monroe was 
elected the second time, in 1820, John Hall voted for him and William J>IcKinley received 
his vote in 1896. That is a long record of participation in public affairs, and very few 
others have equalled it. He lived during the administration of everv- President but Wash- 
ington, having been born during the first year of John Adams' administration."

byterian Board, Bahia, Brazil, passed away. 'The Presbyterian Assembly Herald' said of 
him: 'The story of his life, when written, will make an inspiring book, and will cover 
the essentials of the history of the Presbyterian missions in Brazil. Through Rio, San 
Paulo, Parana, Bahia, Sergipe and part of Minas, he is the best known of American mis- 
sionaries, and the undeniable evidences of his work are found over this vast area. He 
may be justly called the builder of churches and the founder of schools. 

" 'Of great coui-age, matchless enthusiasm, and tireless energy, he traversed the dan- 
gerous regions of the interior on muleback, before the days of railways, and though 
repeatedly stoned, driven from the towns and threatened with death, he returned and 
delivered the message, won hearts, and churches grew up in his wake. A wise and sym- 
pathetic counselor to those in trouble, he was a high type of a true missionary. He car- 
ried into darkened lives the undying hope and the sure promise of the gospel of Christ.' 
His body was buried in the English cemetery at Bahia, Brazil, according to his 
'desire to be laid to rest in the land and among the people whom, he loved.' "

Rees came to W^est Chester in 1S49. ^"^^ learned his trade of a plumber 
with John Lent, after which he engaged in business at Newport. Perry Co., 
Pa. But He returned to West Chester, in 1857, and in conjunction with his 
brother bought out John Lent. Then under the firm name of R. & E. Palmer 
conducted a stove, tinware, heating, plumbing and furnishing business 
which grew from a moderate start to an extensive establishment, occupying 
two large stores on Market St., opposite the court house. After thirty-one 
years of a successful career, in 1888 they dissolved their partnership, each tak- 
ing one of the stores, doing this to avoid complications in the settlement of 
their respective estates. Rees had only the advantage of such education as 
afforded by the common country schools of his youth, but developed remark- 
able business qualities and in addition to this became a prominent citizen in 
matters of importance in local affairs of his town. He also built several houses 
and had his last residence at 32 S. High St. He and his family were mem- 
bers of the Methodist Church. Issue : —

Eli learned the same trade as his brother. Rees, and with the same man, 
John Lent; he went into the grocery business for a short time, but in 1857 
went into partnership with his brother in their chosen occupation, which con- 
tinued for thirty-one years. He continued in busin.ess by himself for twelve 
years longer, when he sold out to his nephew in 1900. 

The following account is taken from the "Ix)cal News" at the time of his 
death : — 

" With the death of Eli Palmer, which we regret to announce, West Chester has 
lost one of hei- most respected and valued citizens. Mr. Palmer was in business here for 
nearly half a century, and was known the country over for his staunch integrity and his 
kindly, pleasant disposition. 

"The deceased was educated in the public schools of his native place, and having 
at an early age to shift for himself, he formed a good acquaintance of men and of business 
methods which served him well in after life. 

"During his long business career he was identified with nearly every enterprise for 
the betterment of West Chester. When he first came here to learn his trade, the town 
was little more than a village. He lived to see it have a population of 10,000. The 
methods of plumbing were crude, and the accorr.modations deemed necessary in a house 
fifty years ago were few compared with what they are to-day. He did not grow rich, not- 
withstanding he transacted a large business for many years. Competition was sharp 
and he sought to do his work honestly and well, which may account for his not accumu- 
lating a large fortune. 

"He strove to do something to aid every good enterprise, even though it should 
not result in large monetary returns. 

"Mr. Palmer was in his 67th year at the time of his decease, the last fifty years of 
which he spent in West Chester. He v/as a member of the M. E. Church, and was 
actively identified with all its interests. He was for many years the Superintendent of 
the Sunday School and was a member of the Official Board. He was a sincere Christian 
man and sought to live a life that was blameless. Those who knew him best respected 
him most. He seldom lost a friend when once an intimacy began, and he was constantly 
widening the circle of his acquaintance. He ever sought to influence the young for 
their good, and many a man can testify that Eli Palmer advised him wisely and well. 
He was careful in the instruction of his children and was spared to see them grow up to 
follow in the pathway of righteousness and good citizenship. 

"He was a member of the Good Will Fire Com-pany. He did not seek office, and 
did but little to force himself into public notice, but was very willing to help others. He 
was charitable and kind to every one. Altogether, his a life well spent and he has 
passed to his reward with the benedictions of his fellow men freely bestowed upon his

Wilmington, Del., Oct. 27, 1908. — Two hymns, selected by her for the purpose more

before her death Mrs. Pass hid been remarkably healthy and retained the use of all her 
faculties, despite her great age.

limb splitting- off the former, allowed the oak to return with great force, carrying the 
popular limb back with It. Tho two men etaited to run, but had only gone a short di^- 
tanre before the falling limb struck Mr. Larkin with full force on the back part of the 
head, cru.shing his skull and killing him instantly. Mr. Larkin was one of our most

leaves a wife and four children to mourn his loss."

Resided in Upper Chichester, Belaware Co., Pa. He lost his life by 
a stroke of lightning. The following remarkable account thereof is taken 
from the "Belaware County Republican" of Aug. 9, 1850: 

"On Saturday last, about four o'clock, a storm of wind and rain, accompanied by 
lightning, passed over this county, during which a dwelling-house near Village Green — 
where a number of persons were in attendance at a vendue — was struck by lightning. 
The electric fluid entered the peak of the roof, passing down between the weather- 
boarding and plastering, scattering them in every direction until it reached the first 
story, where it divided, one portion passing in at a hook driven in the wall and from 
which a looking-gla^s was suspended, and striking Nathan P. Button, who was standing 
Immediately under the glass, upon the top of the head, leaving but a slight mark. The 
fluid passed to his left arm above the elbow, thence down his body, burning the skin 
in its passage. He li'^ed about five minutes, and was sensible of his approaching dissolu- 
tion. The fiuid also passed from him to John McCay, who was standing near, struck him 
in the back and ran down both, legs, burning the skin and clothes from his body, tear- 
ing his shoes to fragments, and leaving a small hole in the toe of one as if perforated 
by a bullet. The other branch of the fluid struck Richard P. Slawter, who was stand- 
ing outside of the house, and felled him to the ground. He was taken up, but expired 
in about fifteen minutes. Rachel Button, the mother of Nathan, was in an adjoining 
room, and on being told of the fate of her son, she came out and immediately com- 
menced to render every assistance in her power to restore him to animation. After lab- 
oring with great anxiety for nearly half an hour, she gradually fainted away, and 
continuing to lose respiration she expired in about three-quarters of an hour after the 
death of her son. 

"The remains of the deceased were all committed to the tomb on Monday. The 
■whole neighborhood and many persons from a distance turned out to pay the last tribute 
to their memories."

News" of Jan. i, 1908; 

Thomas Elwood Bennett, when a young man, opened a store at Radnor, 
Delaware Co., Pa. After a time he went to Upper Darby, same Co., and here 
formed a partnership with Charles B. Lear under tlie firm name of Bennett 
&. Lear, which lasted through life. Leaving here Mr. Lear went to West 
Chester, Pa., and continued business as the same firm, which store is supposed 
to be the oldest in Chester county contir.ued under one partnership manage- 
ment. It was opened in 1S66. Mr. Lear died in 1905, his son, William P. 
Lear, then taking his interest, and it is expected there will be no change now 
in the business. 

Mr. Bennett went to Pliilaielphia, where he was in business at 22nd and 
Market Sts., and later at 112-114 North 9th St., at one time under the firm 
name of Bennett & Colville and as T. E. Bennett & Co. He finally retired 
from business and last residence was at 3903 Powelton Ave. 

He was a great traveler and being possessed of a competency, he en- 
joyed seeing the world. He made nine tours abroad, seeing nearly all the 
European countries and also visiting Palestine and EgA-pt. His first tour was 
m?de in 1878 and his last in 1906. He v.-ent three ^. .'mcs to California, tv\ice 
to the Bermudas and on special trips to ^vlexico and the Grand Canon. He 
spoke delightfully of what he had seen and heard while away from home; so 
that old and young were both pleased and instructed with his stories. Being 
of a friendly disposition he made acquaintances everywhere and many will 
hear with regret that he has passed away.

Co., Pa. No children. 

The following is from a local notice printed at the time of her death : 
Her early life was spent in the locality of Willowdale. where she attend- 
ed the district school, and later went to Westtown Boarding School. Her 
tastes were literary and she taught in the schools of West Marlborough af- 
ter the close of her student life. In the early sixties she married William 
Harry, a native of the State of Ohio and at the time a resident of Kennett 
Square. They lived in that borough and for several years on the Ellicott 
place at Avondale. Later Mr. Harry purchased a tract of land in Virginia, 


where he remained for a year or so, and about 1870 or 1871, bought a prop- 
erty on South Union street, Kennett Square, where, for ten years or more 
the couple resided, until his sudden death in 1880. Since that time Mrs. 
Harry made her home in her sister's family. Her retiring nature and long 
invalidism made her much of a recluse, but she possessed the charm shared 
in common by the daughters of James and Margaret Pyle, of winning refine- 
ment, scholarly tastes, gentility and kindness. She was a member of the So- 
ciety of Friends and her life bore the fruits of the discipline of that peaceful 
sect. Elizabeth, wife of John D. Worth, of West Chester; Margaretta, wife 
of the late Sharpless ]Mercer, of Kennett Square, and Mary Ann, wife of B. 
F. Wickersham, Sr., of the same borough., were sisters of the deceased. 
Throughout the closing years of her life, while an inmate of the houseliold 
of the latter, she was tenderly loved and received the gentlest ministrations 
of her sister's daughters.

agriculturist and an influential citizen in his neighborhood and an actively 
concerned member of the Society of Friends, of which both he and Margaret 
were for many years and at the time of their deaths esteemed elders. His 
death, which was sudden, was an acknowledged great loss to the community 
and his meeting.

"Matthew Wood, one of the best-known and highly respected citizens of 
Delaware county, died yesterday at the_ residence of his son, in his 83rd year. 
Mr. Wood was of direct English lineage, his father having left the old coun- 
try in 1795, and settled in this county. This son was born in Chester in 18 19, 
and grew to manhood here, receiving a good common school education. While 
still a young man and in love with the occupation of his father, he went to 
farming, first in Concord and afterwards in Aston Twp., and became engaged 
extensively in agriculture. He also owned and conducted a feed and saw mill.

farm in 1S88, and retired from active br..-ines?. He was an attender of

He bias never married. 

The following account of his ca{)ture is from tlie [)en ui Captain Dr. R. 

B. Prescott: 

"During the winter of lStJl-3 it v,as the fortune of the writer to b;? in c-o'junund 
of 'Fort McConihe.' a small fort situated on tlie Bermuda Hundred front in Vii-ania 
about midway beiweeu the .lames and Appomattox rivers, which was built for t!ie pro- 
tection of the Union picket line. One exceedingly dark night it was absolutely necessary 
to knov,' which side held the pkket line. So volunteers were called for to go down and 
ascertain if possible how matters stood. All realized the dauiier of such an expedition 
and a second call had to be made when a voice responded "I'll go." quickly loUowed by 
another. The first speaker proved to be one of tlie youngest men in the garrison, .Tohn 

C. Palmer, a mere lad of eighteen. With strict injunctions to observe care and caution 
the two, the younger in advance, stole out into the darkness; then followed a few moments 
of silence and expectation, when suddenly a single musket shot was heard and a moment 
after the second of the two returned with haste and excitement, exclaiming, "They've got 
him! They've got him, and the rebs are down there in force.' It seems that they had 
advanced tint a short distance beyond the abatis when a .-tern voice said 'Halt.' and at 
the same instant a hea^y hand was laid upon the foreino^t man. the second Instantly 
comprehended the situation, turned and fled, followed by the shot we heard, ^ut which 
iu the darkness missed him. The youthful hero who voluntarily sacrificed himself to 
save his comiades never returned to his company. We heard indirectly that he was 
taken to a Southern prison pen and after a time exchanged. The writer never looks over 
the final muster-roll of Company C, without reading opposite the name John C. Falmer: 
•Captured by the enemy at Fort McConihe, November IS. 1SG4,' and recalling the thrill- 
ing experience of that eventful night."

Tioga Co., Pa. ; both buried in ^A'ellsboro Cemetery. 

He was raised on a farm and inured to all the tribulations of pioneer 
life, for in the days of his youth there were ver\- few of the comforts of to- 
day obtainable. He attended tnc district school two or three months during 
the winter, when he could be spared from work. Upon reaching manhood he 
married ]\Iiss Lydia Ann W'heeland and took her to his Tioga county home. 
She was an unpretending country girl, handsome but not vain. Her steadi- 
ness and firmness of character was the stay of the family all through life. 
She was always watchful over her children, but never austere and not opposcfi 
to their participation in innocent amusements. 

]\Ir. Cox started life as r. farmer, which he followed for eight years, 
during which time he cleared, fenced, and cultivated about seventy acres of 
land mostly with his own handr. In 1S54 he sold his farm and engaged '"n 
the mercantile and lumbering business. This he discontinued during the 
Civil \\'ar, but resumed again and continued from June 1865 until 1869, 
when he was elected to public office. 

He commenced an army record with a commission dated July 18, 1854, 
as Brigadier Inspector, with rank of Z\Iajor, and was again commissioned 
June 6, 1859, to June 1864. He was instrumental in raising several com- 
panies of infantry at the commencement of the Civil War. He was commis- 
sioned Major of the 171st Reg. Pa. Vol. Inf. X^'ov. 16, 1862. and saw severe 
service in the field in various campaigns, mostly in Virginia. He was commis- 
sioned Colonel of the 207th Reg. Pa. \'o!s. Sept. 28. 1S64, and was breveted 
Brigadier General April 9, 1865, and mustered out of service }*Iay 31, 1865. 
He published an interesting pamphlet of his "recollections of the War." 

In the civil line of service he was appointed Postmaster at Liberty, Ti- 
oga Co., Pa., April 13, 1869, having previously been elected a Justice of the 
Peace in February, 1S62, which office he held for five years. 

In 1869 he was elected County Treasurer of Tioga county for three years, 
and removed to Wellsboro in 1870. In 1S72 he was elected to the office of 
Prothonotary of that county, and re-elected six times thereafter, thus holding 
this office seven terms, for tweny-one years.

The following account of his life is taken from the Ottawa, Kansas, Re- 
public, Feb. 15, 1902: 


"Harlen P. Welsh died at 8.15 last night under startling circumstances. 

"For a considerable time Mr. Welsh has been in enfeebled condition; it v.-as ap- 
parent that he was growing weaker, and for the last few weeks his condition has been 
a matter of extreme concern to his friends. He has, however, with the firm dctrrmina- 
tlon that has been a dominant force in his character, regularly resorted to his ofifice, 
the family carriage and its resolute inmate, driven by the most faithful \^ife. being one 
of the most familiar sights on our streets. For several days past Mr. Welsh has be^n 
troubled with an accumulation, as or phelgm, that congested in his throat; yesterday 
afternoon, in his office, he was seized with a recurrence of this difnculty that was un- 
usually severe, and he narrowly escaped strangulation. By advice of Judge Robbins, 
who was in the office at the time of the attack, he went to hs home earlier than us^ual. 

"Shortly after the supper hour, Mr. Welsh had occasion to repair to the back part 
of the residence property. Rarely of late has Mrs. Welsh permitted him to go about 
alone, fearing that in his feeble and crippled condition he might receive a fall, but on 
this occasion she was temporarily busy, and he had been gone several minutes before 
she noted the fact. She immediately followed, and found the unfortunate gentleman 
prone upon the ground, unconscious. She immediately dispatched a servant for aid and 
telenhoned for Dr. A. H. Wright; neighbors promptly responded, and the oufierer was 
conveyed to the house. Dr. Wright arrived almost immediately, and found his patient 

; i... I 


r.VuA •, 


in a dying condition; he expired at 8.15. The cause was apoplexy, undoubtedly super- 
Induced by an attack of choking, as above described. 

"Harlan P. Welsh had but little advantages of education, limited entirely to com- 
mon schools in parts of each winter until he was fifteen, when he had the misfortune 
to lose his right leg by erysipelas of the bone. He then applied himself the best 
he could to acquiring an education, studying nights while working at his trade as tailor. 
At the end of the year he obtained a position in a store, and in this way obtained means 
to enter a Friends' seminary at Salem, Iowa. In the fall of 'o2, he entered a public 
school, and the next summer engaged as a teacher. In 1853 he commenced the study of 
faw with Harvey Tannehill. of Centerville, Iowa, walking two and a half miles 
and back each day on a crutch. That winter he taught the Centerville school, and for 
three years continued, studying law at night. 

"In 1854 he was elected county attorney of Appanoose county, and conducted that 
office most successfully for two years. 

"He came to Franklin county in 185S. making the trip wiih wagon 
and three yoke of oxen, with wife and one child, being four weeks on 
the road. He had no money, but had laid in provisions for a year. 
He sold a yoke of oxen to buy a cooking stove and other household necessities. With 
a hired man he cut and hauled logs to a mill at Centropolis, and by the next fall had 
a good frame house. 

"He was appointed the first district clerk of Franklin, but resigned in a short 
time because the duties of the office conflicted with his practice of law. 

"The great drouth of 1S60, which, paralyzed business, caused misfortune to come 
to Mr. Welsh; he sold his property and retired to a farm. He conducted it three years 
and cleared 53,000. 

"In 1863 he was unanimously elected journal clerk of the House of Representatives, 
and re-elected in 1864. 

"He has held county offices many times. In 1865 he was elected county attorney, 
holding the office for two years. In 1867 he was a candidate for the state senate, and 
was defeated by Dr. A. Wiley after a vigorous contest. In 1S6S he was elected to the 
house of representatives by a handsome vote. During his term he was a member of the 
judiciary committee and committee on ways and means. 

"Mr. W'elsh served as county attorney and also as attorney for the city of Ottawa. 
When Ottowa was incorporated as a town, June 18th, 1S66, Mr. Welsh was appointed one 
of the trustees, and was elected secretaiT of the board when the city was organized as a 
city of the second class. In 1867 Mr. Welsh was elected city attorney. He was elected 
mayor in 1869 and re-electd in 1870. 

"In 1871 he was nominated by the republicans for representative and elected, and 
v.-as chairman of the committee on elections, chairman of the committee on appropria- 
tions and a member of the judiciary committee. 

"Thereafter for a number of yeai-s Mr. Welsh devoted himself exclusively to the 
practice of law, but was again county attorney 3 years from 1805 to 1898. 

"He w^as an Odd Fellow for many years, passing all the chairs and was twice a 
representatve to the grand lodge. 

"Though originally a Methodist, for many of the later years of his life he was very 
prominently connected with the Baptist church." 

The following proceedings are taken from the Ottawa Herald of T^Iay 2, 
1902 : — 

"Resolutions of respect to the memory of the late H. P. Welsh were presented at 
a meeting of the Franklin county bar in district court room yesterday evening. Before 
the acceptance of the resolutions, members of the bar spoke of their relations and acquaint- 
ance with Mr. Welsh, The proceeding was given added interest from the fact that the bar 
was engaged in doing honor to the memory of its oldest member — to a man who was here at 
the beginning of things and who as a lawyer and a citizen, fought his way up through 
difficulties few men would have cared to face. It is not often — if indeed it has occurred 
at all — that the death of a citizen of this county has called out such expressions of sincere 
esteem as were spoken by the attorneys yesterday in reference to the life of H. P. Welsh. 
"The resolutions, which were drawn by C. B. Mason and ordered by the court to 
be made a part of the court records, are as follows: 

"To the Honorable the District Court of Franklin County, Kansas: 

"The undersigm^^d, heretofore appointed to prepare some fitting expression

The following obituary or eulogy on the death of Dr. William Hamilton 
Pyle was published in Kaufman. Te.xas, Star, his death having occurred on 
the night of Feb. 9, 1891, as the clock struck 12 midnight. 


"This announcement carried sadness and sorrow into the homes of all Kaufman 
Tuesday morning. Over a year ago death set his seal upon this distinguished man and 
slowly but surely bore him down to the grave. Monday night the &th inst. as the clocii 
struck twelve, his spirit pas.'^ed away as he lisped a prayer to the God of all. He was 
conscious until the last, and as the death damp gathered upon his brow, he knew his 
suiTeriug would soon be over and he would soon be "'gathered to his fathers. ' In the 
death of this man and that of Capt. Z. T. Adams, Kaufman has lost her truest and most 
steadfast friends. The hour was never too hot nor too cold, or the sacrifice too great for 
them to serve their friends and their beloved town. Strong alike in brain force and power; 
strong alike in likes; strong alike in passion and temperaments; strong alike in love 
and hatred; strong alike in suffering and endurance, they yielded alike to the rame dread 
disease, and were followed to the grave by the whole town, honored and injavned as 
only true friends are honored and mourned. Dr. Pylc, like all the race of man, had his 
faults, but he had more virtues. Possessing a mind of rare culture and power, when he 
arrived at a decision he adhered to it with knightly courage and stoic firmness. 

"Coming to Kaufman in his early manhood from Ohio, his native state, he began 
the practice of medicine. His culture, refinement and ability as a physician soon won 
the confidence, respect and esteem of all. After the war he was sent to the Texas 
Senate, where his ability was recognized among the ablest men of the State. He was 
a fine speaker, a brilliant writer and a gifted conversationalist. As a Senator he had

no superior and but few peers. In all Kaufman's contests he was the recognized nrain 
power behind the throne. Had he cho.sen and co comported him.-elf he could have Qll^-d 
the highest positions in the gift of our people. Whatever he undertook, he did it with 
all his power, and that meant success. There was no neutrality or hypocrisy in his 
nature, he was for you or against you. If he was for you his ponderous influence was 
felt and dreaded. He was untiring in his zeal, cautious in his counsel and unerrin? In 
his judgment. As friend he was true, loyal and zealous; a.> a father, generous, kind 2nd 
gentle; as a husband, devoted, tender and true; as a sinner tlie devil's best friend, and 
as a Christian consecrated, God-fearing and faithful. For long years he was an agnostic. 
but respectful to ministers and Christians. Over a year ago under the preaching of Dr. 
W. O. Bailey he was convinced of his errors and deeply convicted of his sins. To dispel 
the deep impressions made upon his conscious nature he quit attending the revival ser- 
vices held by Dr. Bailey, but when he was stricken down with the disease th^t finally 
carried him to the grave, he yielded to the promptings of his nobler nature and with the 
death-like pallor stamped on his features he was baptized into the Baptist church, and 
we trust into Jesus. From that hour he was as jealous as a Peter, as loving as a Tohn, 
and as faithful unto death as a Paul. Peace be unto his ashes, rest unto his soul and 
love that passeth all understanding unto his bereaved wife, who stands like a broken 
reed on the border of time. May God in his mercy comfort and bless her and her house-

The follovviiig are extracts iwjin the eulogy sp<jken at his iuueral by liis 
former Commander, Col. J. T. Ilohnes: — 

"It Is nearlj- fifty years since I first touched the hp.nds and brushed hearts -with 
Captain Rothacker, and when the nies;:-age came that his earthly career was ended it 
seemed to me that I must attend the last scene of all and lay upon his ca>kot and twine 
about his memory a bri^^f tribute. God gave him length of days, beyond the allotted 
span of three score years and ten, and they were years and days of a bu.~y and a dis- 
tinguished life. Here let me note the climax in his military career. It Wits at Kenesaw. 
Some of you have seen the ridge do%\Ti from which he charged and t!.t upwjrd slope 
from the little creek to the Confederate works, six hundred yards in all. Of the five 
thousand men who started down the slope on the charge fifteen hundred went down in 
fifteen minutes. It was a harvest of death. It is natural that our three years in that 
fierce and bloody struggle should be impressed upon the minds of participants as no 
such term of years could be impressed by the ordinary phrases and experi-^nces of civil 
life. Many of us care free in bounding youth with few responsibilities and no depend- 
ents could confront the duties and dangers of those times with light hearts. The young 
wife with little ones clinging to her knees, who gave up husband, closed her doors to 
weep in silence as he marched away and then alone faced the future and the 
dread of coming days for three long years, displayed a heroism equaling that of the 
soldier whether in camp or action. Vv'hen thinking and talking of the sacrifices, the 
suffering and the trials of war we should never overlook the matchless class to which 
Mrs. Rothacker belonged. 

"The capabilities of Dr. Rothacker in and out of his profession were equal to 
every task and demand that came to him in war and peace for more than sixty years. 
Of high intelligence and talents and principles, a commanding presence, an equable 
spirit, gentle manner, a just man, in all relations of life, professional, social, domestic, 
political and religious he deserved and was accorded the unalloyed esteem of his fellow 
men. What shall I say more? The world is better for his having lived in it and hia 
death illumines his life."

an exceptional brother, devoted to his sisters and home. He was the light 
and life of our home. He never married; always cheerful, uncomplaining, 
faithful to duty to God and man. His genial disposition made him a great 
favorite everywhere known, and he is widely missed. He has gone to his re- 
warcl and a reunion with the loved ones gone before."

A fifteen-year-old son of Dr. R. E. Palmer, of Doe Run, had a terrible expeii- 
ence in a woods near Laurel a few days ago and all one night and the next day a 
searching party scoured the country in search of him. 

The lad went into the woods, which is near his home, in the afternoon, for the pur- 
pose of cutting some canes and while there become so bewilderd that he did not 
know which direction to turn In order to reach his home. While he was wandering 
about the forest rain commenced to fall and darkness overtook him, but he walked 
about all night through the trees. A searching party was formed by the men of the 
nei<;hborhood and they searched the woo<ls all night in vain. The next day the search 
was resumed, but it was not until noon that the lad was found. He was then almost 
overcome with fatigue and hunger. He had kept up his wanderings about the woods 
until the time when he was found, but was so completely lost that he did not know 
where he was when the party found him.

The following notices are taken from the press notices after the time of his 
death : — 

Hi.s father dying when he was about fifteen years of age. deceased assumed charge 
of a largo farm and dair>' near Darline;, Dela^vare county, on which his father had lived 
and died of the same disease as hi? sou, typhoid fever. At a later age the deceased stud- 
led at Swarthmorc: subsequently law, but abandoned it to look after pressing interests 
on the farm near Darling, on which his mother and children yet resided. At a later 
period he had a creamery built at Chadd's Ford, since which time he has lived there. 
He manufactured butter at this place of such an excellent quality as to bring him pa- 
tronage from New York, Washington, Baltimore and other distant points. He was a 
prominent member of the Creamery Association, and was very earnest in advocacy of 
its cause. His wife and four sons survive him. He was very ambitious and industri- ■ 
ous, and it is thought by his many frienda that the fever from which he died was 
superinduced by over-work and anxiety connected with his business ramifications. 


At a me€ting of Upper Birmingham Lodge. No. 010. I. 0. 0. F., held August 
llth, 1894, these resolutions were unanimously adopted: 

WHEREAS, The great and supreme Ruler of the universe, has in His infinite 
wisdom, removed from among us our worthy and esteemed brother, Charles P. Dar- 
lington; therefore, 

Resolved, That the sudden removal of such a life from amongst our midst leaves 
a vacancy and a shadow that will be deeply realized by all the members and friends 
of this organization, and will prove a serious loss to the community and the public. 

Resolved, That with deep sympathy with the bereaved family of the deceased 
we express our hope, that even so great a loss to them may be overruled for good b> 
Him who doeth all things well. 

Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be spread upon the minutes of this 
lodge, a copy printed in the DAILY LOCAL NEWS, and a copy forwarded to the 
bereaved family.

was the champion and to him will be awarded at Commencement time the gold medal 
which has been given for many years by D. Webster Meredith, of New York, a former

Allen Darlington spoke the eloquent plea of Robert Eminett in his appeal against 
sentence of death as a traitor, giving well the fearless defiance of the injustice which 
had condemned him.

Mary D. Palmer, Jan. 22, 1892. 
How fle«t the years of measured being run, — 

The gracious years of beauty, fair and sweet; 
But who shall say thy life was incomplete. 
Though end and purpose seem to us unwon? 
How can we know when any task is done? 

We walk in twilight, full of doubts and fears. 

And oft our eyes ai'e blinded with our tears, 
And we heed not the glory of the sun-.. 
. , Sweet peace to thee, O friend, immortal grown, 

The morning brings, whose glory has begun 

In soundless dawn above our shadow-landl 
Why life should fail with budded hopes unblown, 
Or fairest lilies perish one by one, 

Perchance hei-eafter we shall understand.

In his forty-first year, Harry R. Sharpless. of Lacey street, died last evening at 
the Chester County Hospital, about six o'clock. 

Mr. Sharple?s had been fatally injured in fnlling from a forty-foot windmill 
tower et the home of Ritner Menough, near Gradyville, on Friday aiternoon. .\ 
broken ankle and internal wounds resulted. It was thought on Saturday morning 
that the left icot would be amputated, but the suigeons upon assembling' about his 
cot, decided that he v,-as not strong- enough to undergo the ordeal, and the operation 
was postponed. He grew weaker, suffering greatly until the end. 

Mr. Sharpless was boiii in We-t Goshen, remained on the farm until he was 
well grown, and then went to Minneapolis, where he made his home with an uncle 
and attended school during a period of about four years. Returning east he remained 
here farming and following other occupations, until his accident. For several years 
he was in the employ of Edward Brinton, and later was in business on North Walnut 
street. For about five years he had b-^en with George J. Palmer, West Chester, Pa. 

Mr. Sharpless was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, attending 'regular- 
ly, and his children belonged to the Sabbath School.

ance which gave hope to her family and friends that she would be spared for some 
years, even though recovery seemed remote. Her father was engaged in mercantile

nings and Hannah A. Clark, of Eldridge Hill. Salem Co., N. J., b. Mar. 9, 
1840; d. Aug. 22, 1907, at Eaton, O. ; bur. at Mound Hill. 

The following; is from an obituary, at the time of his death : — 

On the 9th of ^^aroh, 1S40. in Eldridge Hill, New Jersey, was born Clarkcon Jen- 
nings, the only sou of I.evi and Hannah Jennings. At the age of eleven he sufterc-d 
the loss of his mother, and grew up the idolized companion of his father, at whose side 
he learned the trade of a mason. Later he became the support of his aged father and 
two younger sisters. 

He early prepared himself for the work of a teacher, and was engaged in that 
profession when the Civil War called him to offer his service to his country. That call 
he answered and therewith came the loss of his health and the change in the course of 
his life to farming. 

Returning from the war, he married Margaret Silver, the sister of his college 
friend, and a few years after moved to Preble county, Ohio, where his subsequent life 
has been spent. The family circle consisting of parents and four children was unbroken 
to the time of his death. 

By birthright he was a member of the Friends' ciuirch, and he always adhered 
to her teachings, beli'?ving in the guidance of the spirit and forum of the conscience. 

His life portrayed the Quaker traits that his ancestry bequeathed him. Reticent 
and unassuming, but kindly and thoughtful. Pie cared nothing for outward show, but 
everything for inner worth. 

His was a peaceable disposition and many times has he suitered personal wrong 
rather than provoke contention by opposing it, nor did he like others wronged. A 
maxim which he always held before himself and family was, "There is good in all 
but none are all good." 

He had a well informed mind and was a great reader, when not working he was 
always found with book or paper. 

Not great as the world knows greatness, but good. His life was lived solely for 
those about him, and thus it was that every task he undertook, however humble, re- 
ceived the same careful attention that might have been expected in affairs of state. 

Not widely known but loved by the few who knew hira well. And if there be 
anything of value in the example of a simple life well lived, the example of high 
ideals in a humble spirit, of thinking much and saying little, of giving much and asking 
little, then Clarkson Jennings has not lived in vain, for there be those whose lives are 
far better for it. His life v.'as gentle and the elements so mixed in him that nature might 
Btand up and say to all the world, "this was a man." 

His widow and daughter continue at the home on Wadsworth St., Eaton.

The following- is an accoui:i" of his career to the time of publishing this 
genealogy- : 


Believers In the influence of heredity will find much to support their claims in 
the ancesti-al record of the Governor of Oregon, Hon. Geoi-ge Earl ChamberlaiiL The 
qualities that have given him an eminent position in the public life of the Northwest 
are his by inheritance from a long line of capable, scholarly and influential ance-stors. 
The family of which he is a member, came from England at an early period in American 
historj' and settled among the pioneers of Pennsylvania. His grandfather, Dr. Joseph 
Chamberlain, a native of Delaware was one of the distinguished physicians at Newark, 
that state. The lady whom he married also came of a prominent pioneer family. Her 
uncle, Charles Thompson, who served as secretary of the Continental Congress from 
1774 to 1789, was born in Ireland, of Scotch lineage, November 29th, 1729. Accompan- 
ied by three sisters he settled at New Cajstle. Del., in 1741, and there became a teacher 
in the Friends' .\cademy. In 1758 he was one of the agents appointed to treat with 
the Indians at Oswego, and while there was adopted by the Delawares, who conferred 
upon him an Indian name meaning "One who speaks with truth." The possessor of lit- 
erary ability, he left his imprint upon the literature of his age through his "Harmony 
of the Five Gospels," a translation of the Old and New Testaments, and an Inquiry Into

the cause of the alienation of the Delaware and Shawneee Indians. His private file of 
letters containing communications written to him while secretary of the Continental 
Congress and before that time, is among the most valued possessions of Governor 
Chamberlain, and contains letters from all the loading men of that day. 

In the family of Dr. Joseph Chamberlain was a son, Charles Thomson Chamberlain, 
a native of Newark, Del., and a graduate of Jeflerson Medical Collf^ge at Philadelphia. After 
receiving the degree of M. D., he settled In Natchez. Miss., in 1S37, as ogering a favor- 
able opening for a professional man. During the years that followed, he built up a 
large practice and established an enviable reputation for skill in the diagnosis and 
treatment of disease. An evidence of his kindly spirit of devotion to duty and self-sacri- 
ficing labors for others is shown by his record during the yellow fever epidemic of IS?]. 
At that time, when many physicians felt justified in considering their own health, he 
attended patients night and day, without thought of self, until at last he was stricken 
with the disease and soon died. 

The wife of Dr. Charles T. Chamberlain was Pamelia H .Archer, a native of 
Harford county, Md., and now a resident of Natchez, Miss. Her father, Hon. Stevenson 
Archer, was born in Harford county, and graduated from Princeton College, lb05, after 
whlch he became an attorney. He served in Congress from ISll to 1S17 from Maryland, 
and in the latter year accepted an appointment from Mississippi Territory- with guber- 
natorial powers, and resigned later. From 1S19 to 1S21 he again represented his district 
In Congress where he was a member of the committee on foreign affaii-s. In 1S25 he 
was elected one of the justices of the Court of Appeals of Maryland, which office he 
held until his death in 1S48, at which tim.e he was chief justice. His father, John 
Archer, M. D., was a n?.tive of Harford county. Md., born in 1741. After graduating 
at Princeton in 1760, he studied for the ministry, but throat trouble rendering pulpit 
work inadvisable, he turned his attention to medicine. The first medical diploma ever 
issued in the new world was given to him by the Philadelphia :\Tedical College. In 177S 
he was elected a member of the convention which framed the Constitution and Bill of 
Rights of Maryland. At the commencement of the Revolutionary War, he had com- 
mand of a military company, the first enrolled in Harford county, and was a member of 
the State Legislature. After the war he practiced his profession and several important 
discoveries in therapeutics are credited to him. In 1797 he was a presiedntial elector and 
from 1801 to 1S07 was a member of C<)ngress from Maryland. His death occurred in 
1810. The Archer family is of Scotch-Irish descent and was represented among the 
earliest settlers of Harford county, where for generations htey wielded wide influence. 
It is worthy of record that the portrait of Hon. Stevenson Archer appears among those 
of distinguished men of Maryland placed in the new courthouse in Baltimore, that 
state, and also adorns the courthouse in his native county. 

In a family of five children, Hon. George Earle Chamberlain was third in order of 
birth. His name comes to him from an uncle. George Earle. who who one of the noted 
men of Maryland, and assistant postmaster general of the Uiiited States during General 
Grant's term as President. In his native city of Natchez, Miss., he received such ad- 
■ vantages as the public schools afforded. On leaving school in 1S70, he clerked in a mer- 
cantile store. Two years later, entering college at Lexington, Va., he took the regular 
course of study in the Washington and Lee Univei-sity. from which he was graduated 
in July of 1876, with the degrees of A. B. and B. L. Shortly after his graduation he 
returned to Natchez, where he remained until after the presidential election. How- 
ever, prospects for success in the south were not encouraging at that time, and he de- 
termined to seek a more favorable opening. V.'irh this purpose in view he came to Ore- 
gon, which has been his home since his arrival December 6th, 1S76. Early in 1S77 he 
taught a country school and in the latter part of the year was appointed deputy clerk 
of Linn County, which position he held until the summer of 1S79. During 1880 he was 
elected to the lower house of the legislature and in 18S4 became district attorney for 
the third judicial district of Oregon. In the discharge of the duties of these various 
offices he gave satisfaction to all concerned, evincing wide professional knowledge and 
resourcefulness. His talents being recognized by the governor, he vx-as given the 
appointment of attorney-general of Oregon on the creation of that office by act of legis- 
lature in 1891, his appointment bearing date of May 21, 1891. For a short time before 
this he had been interested in the banking business at Albany, being connected first with 
the First National Bank, and later with the Linn County National Bank. 

At the general election following his appointment, he was elected attorney-general 
on the Democratc ticket, receiving a majority of about five hundred, notwithstanding 
the fact that the Republican majority in Oregon at that time v,-as about ten thousand. 
In 1900, he was elected district attorney of Multnomah county by a majority of eleven 
hundred and sixty-two, the county being then about four thousand Republican. The 
highest honor of his life came to him, unsolicited in 1902, when the E>emocrats nom- 



inated him for governor by acclamation. In the election that followed he received a 
majority of two hundred and fifty-six over the Ropublican candidate, although on the 
congressional vote the stale at the time was nearly fifteen thousand Republican. In 
1906 ho was again nominated by his party for Governor, and was re-elected by a ma- 
jority of twenty five hundied o\er his opponent, being the only Democrat elected. 

These figures are indicative of his popularity, not only with his own party, but 
with the general public. Among his large circle of friends and admirers are many who. 
though of different political faith, have yet such a warm regard for the man himself 
and such a firm faith in his ability to guide aright the ship of state, that many thousand 
votes were given him by people accustomed to vote another ticket than his own. It is 
dou"btful if any public man possesses greater sireneth among the people of the state. 
Through the long period of his residence heie, he has won and maintained the con- 
fidence of the people, and his upright life, combined with unusual mental gifts, has 
given him his present prominence and prestige. 

In Natchez, Miss., Mr. Chamberlain married Miss Sally N. Welch, who was born 
near that city, a descendant of an old Revolutionary family from New England. Her 
father, A. T. Welch, a native of New Hampshire, was a large planter near Natchez, the 
possessor of abundant means that rendei-ed possible the giving of valuable educational 
advantages to his children. Mrs. Chamberlain was graduated from the Natchez Institute 
and is a lady of culture and refinement, an active member of the Calvary Presbyterian 
Church and also a member of the Eastern Star. 

The Commercial Club, of Portland. Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club, University 
Club and Oregon State Historical Society, numljer Governor Chamberlain among their 
members. A life member of the Benevolent and Piotective Order of Elks in Portland, 
he is past exalted ruler of the local lodge. While at Albany he joined the Independent 
Order of Odd Fellov.'S, in which he is past noble grand and a demiited member of lodge 
and encampment. Interested in the Knights of Pythias, he is past chancellor of Laurel 
Lodge, No. 7 at .-\lbany. His record in Masonry is interesting and proves him to have 
been devoted to the lofty principles of that order. His initial experience with Masonry 
began in St. John's Lodge, No. 62, A. F. & A. M., at Albany, of which he is past master. 
At this writing his merabei-ship is in Williamette Lodge, No. 1 at Portland, and he is 
past grand orator of the Grand I^odge of Oregon. The Royal Arch degree was conferred 
upon him in Bailey Chapter No. 8 at Albany, in which he is past high priest, and 
he is also past grand high priest of the Grand Chapter of Oregon. He was raised to 
the Knight Templar degree in Temple Commandery No. 3, K. T., at Albany, in which 
he is past eminent commander. The thirty-second degree was conferred upon him in 
Oregon consistory No. 1, at Portland, and he is also identified with Al Kader Temple, 
Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. 

On January 19, 1909, the State legislature, which was Republican, elected him to 
succeed the Hnn. C. W. Fulton in the United States Senate. Governor Chamberlain's 
election to the Senate was one of the great anomalies of American politics, the people 
having chosen him by direct vote and the Republican legislature being compelled to 
elect him instead of a man of their own faith. It marked the triumph of the direct 
vote by the people for the office of United States Senator. 

It was also a great tribute to his personal popularity in the State, he having re- 
ceiv d thousands of votes from those not affiliated with the Democratic party. 

In the Senate, Senator Chamberlain has been named on the following committees: 
The Committees on Agriculture and Forestry, Expenditures in the Interior Departm.ent. 
Irrigation and Reclamation of Arid Lands. Pacific railroads, Philippines, Printing and 
Public Lands.

The following accouiit is taken from a local paper of ]\Iarch 14, 1906: — 

The announcement of the appointment of Henrietta Josephine Meeteer to suc- 
ceed Dean Elizabeth Bond, of Swarthmore College, was made yesterday. Dean Bond 
tendered her resignation to the Board of Managei-s last fall, to take effect at the end 
of the present year. 

Miss Meeteer's home is in Camden, N. J., and she comes from a Friend's family. 
She comploted the teacher's course at the University of Pennsylvania during the years 
189C-1900, and later took a special course in Latin in the graduate department. In the 
fall of 1901, Miss Meeteer was appointed to the Frances Sargent Pepper Fellowship in 
classical language at the University of Pennsylvania, which honor she held for three 
successive years, receiving the degiee of Doctor of Philosophy in June, 1904. 

Dr. Meeteer began her work as teacher in 1887. She taught in well-kno^-n 
preparatory schools in Philadelphia. In the fall of 1904, she was appointed Dean of 
Women in the University of Colorado, from which position she comes to Swarthmore. 
In Colorado, Miss Meeteer originated and has put into operation a system of unification 
among the girls of the university. So successful and practical has this system become, 
that she is now able to turn over to her successor the direction of the work without im- 

Miss Meeteer will begin her duties at Swarthmore next fall, well prepared for 
the work that is before her. In addition to her services as dean, she will teich two 
or three courses in the department of Latin and Greek. With her scholarship repre- 
sented by her work at the University of Pennsylvania, her experience as teacher in 
secondary schools and in a university; with a love for and faith in young people. Miss 
Meeteer combines the qualities and attainments desired in the women chosen to 
direct, the moral, intellectual, and social life of the young women of Swarthmore Col-

Note. — He was a vice president of the Universal Peace Union, and from its oigan. 
The Peacemaker, of Nov., 1910, tlie following testimony is taken:— "His bpneticent 
expression Is an index to his character — the purest treasure mortal times afford is spot- 
less reputation. For many years as one of our vice presidents, he was with his wife 
always ready and willing to promote the inteiest of our cause — his devotion to public 
and private philanthropic work was conspicuous. He had secured an enviable position 
in business as a manufacturer and was iionoied with several positions of trust. He 
served the "Grandon Trust," which dispenses coal to the poor, was a director of the 
Friends' Charity Fuel Association, treasuier of the Quaker City Div., Sons of Temper- 
ance, and for a time president of the Fifteenth Ward Organized Charities, but his 
presidency of the Friends' Home for Children in West Philadelphia was where he 
seemed to be in his truest element. As a member of the Religious Society of Friends 
and an elder of Race Street Monthly Meeting, he was attentive to all its i-equirements. 
and secured the aifection and confidence of his friends. When we can find such a 
consistent example of true living, such a model of real home life, with all its sacred 
obligation.^ and responsibilities, it is at once a legacy to our age and a tiibute to the 
conditions that make for true peace. 



factor)' recently to Camden, N. J., and he retired from the firm, with residence 
2013 Vine St., Philadelphia, Pa. 

The following is a fitting testimony to him in his devoted work. 


At a special meeting of the Board of Managers of the Friends' Home for Children 
held at the residence of George D. Miller on Sixth-day evening, Seventh month first, 
1910, the following resolution was unanimously adopted: 

The veil of death has been drawn between us and our friend and beloved asso- 
ciate, Alben T. Eavenson, and it is emineuily fitting that we should in some manner 
record our appreciation of his faithful and efficient service rendered to the manage- 
ment of the "Friends" Home for Children," a work in which he ever manifested a 
fatherly interest in all that pertains not only to the material interests of the children at 
the Home, but to their moral and religious training as well. Through his efforts many 
a lonely and neglected child has been afforded comforts, conveniences and instruction. 

Wise in counsel, generous in contribution, charitable in judgment, quickly responsive 
to every call of duty, he has left to us an example of fidelity and loving devotion which 
we may well emulate; and while we consider it a duty and a pleasure to record our 
estimate of our departed friend, nevertheless the parting is a source of profound sorrow. 
Long and lovingly will his associates cherish his memory and the beneficaries of his bounty 
^\^ll call him blessed. He wrought well and having gone to his reward, now rests from 
his labors. Of such the Master says, "Inasmuch as ye did it unto the least of these, 
my brethren, ye did it unto me. Well, done, good and faithful servant, enter thou 
into the joy of thy Lord." Blessed service, blessed reward. 

May his exemplary life influence us to greater devotion to the cause which he 
so generously supported. 

To the bereaved and sorrowing family of our departed friend and co-worker we 
extend our sincere and htcartfelt sympathy.

Note. — The following tribute to his motl\er was published at the time of her 
death in 1906: 

"The Friends' Home for Destitute Children in West Philadelphia is one of the 
Eood works in which she was deeply interested. Her voice was often heard in religious 
assemblies, briefly and earnestly bearing testimony to the love of our Heavenly Father: 
and especially will the hundreds of school children miss her pleasant smile and 
cheerful voice. Her chosen calling of physician was not neglected because of the 
numerous public interests claiming her attention. The breadth and scope of her activi- 
ties seemed to embrace all human ne^ds and the touch of her hand helped to bring 
healing and comfort; so that her presence was a well spring of joy."

non-explosive burning fluid. Pie poured some of his compound into a crock 
and took a light to see if it was full ; wlien the fire came near, the gas from 
the substance took fire and ig-nited the v.hole mass. The man undertook t'^ 
throw^ it out, but failed. Henry O. came in the back way, and the door being 
opened front, rushed into and through the fire, kicking it out of the house. In 
doing this some of the oil got on him, burning his legs and arms badly, but 
the fatality ensued from inhaling the flame. He survived for forty-two hours 
in great suffering.
