INTRODUCTION. 



The work of compiling this book should have been done by other 
hands in days long past, and we have taken it up simply as a duty and 
labor of love, and not with hopes of any pecuniary gain. In the main, 
written records have been relied upon; written statements from in- 
dividuals have, in some instances, been inserted, and where tradition 
is given, it is so stated. 

This work is compiled and published especially for the home circle 
of the Borton and Mason families, and those who have descended there- 
from ; and we hope and desire that it may be received in the same spirit 
in which it has been written. Some families will not appear owing to a 
lack of proper data concerning them; but knowing their ancestors for 
two or three generations, will be able to trace their genealogy and family 
history back to the progenitors. Much authentic history has been in- 
serted, believing that it will not only add interest to the book, but will 
help to preserve it for those who may come after us. 

There will doubtless be mistakes in geneological data, compilation 
and construction of this volume; but when we think of the wa' c, stu- 
pendous in its nature, which has been done during moments of .vme as 
they could be snatched from a busy professional life, and also think of 
the vast correspondence and research required, we believe that all criti- 
cisms will be considerate and charitable. 

THE COMPILER. 



EXPLANATORY NOTES. 



The arrangement of the work is by generations, and the names of 
the children in each generation who married are carried forward as 
parent of the following generation. 

The index includes the eighth and ninth generations, and the 
numeral placed, in each instance, before the name Borton and Mason can 
through the above arrangement be readily traced back to the progenitor, 
assisted by the number of each generation given at the margin of each 
page. , 

The abbreviations are: b., born; d., died; m., married; gen., gen- 
eration. 

These families will be known and spoken of as follows: 

New Jersey Bortons. 

Ohio Bortons, descendants of 

Benjamin, Sr. of the IVth gen., immigrated to Gurnsey Co., Ohio, 
1804. 

Samuel, Sr., of the Vth gen., immigrated to Stark Co., Ohio, 1808. 

Daniel, Sr., of the Vth gen., immigrated to Stark Co., Ohio, 1810. 

Josiah, Sr., of the IVth gen., immigrated to Clinton County, Ohio, 
1812. 

Sons of Bethuel, of the Vth gen., immigrated to Fulton County, 
Ohio, 1836 to 1839. 

Indiana Bortons, Ira Borton, and Sons of Samuel, Jr., Vlth gen., 
immigrated from Stark County, Ohio, 1858. 

Masons, "Evesham" Burlington County, New Jersey. 

Masons, Ohio branch, descendants of John Mason, of the 5th gen., 
who immigrated to Fulton County, Ohio, 1839. 

In preparing this history of the Borton and Mason families, search 
has been made in Friends Records of monthly meetings in Philadelphia, 
Pa., and also in Friends Records, London, England, also local church 
records in that country. A thorough search in the Congressional 
Library, Washington, D. C, also, in Friends Library, Philadelphia, and 
in the University Library, Urbana, 111., and all books have been examined 
that would probably give information with regard to the history or 
genealogy of these families. We have given the biographies of noted 
persons in the Mason family, compiled in part by Miss Eleanor Lexing- 
ton, while others have been taken from Encyclopedias and other authen- 
tic sources of information. While the present work has to do with the 



BORTON FAAIILY 

Evesham New Jersey branch of the family, we believe a short history 
of the family at large will not cause a lack of interest in the work. Fur- 
ther, we wish to acknowledge our obligations to the following named

THE BORTONS IN EUROPE. 

The ending of the name in "ton," and the location of a townnamed 
Boiirton in Gloucestershire, a county adjoining that of Northanipton, 
would indicate that the ancestors of John, the immigrant to America, 
were of Norman origin, and were no doubt one of the tribes who came 
into England at the time of the Conquest in 1066; and that Bourton in 
Gloucestershire was their county seat, ^Imd which was devised to theny/ 
by William the Conqueror. Tradition says that the chief of this tribe 
was John of Bourton, and that later the crest on the arms was a boar's 
head. 

We quote the following from Joseph Besse's "Collections of the 
Sufferings of the People Called Friends for the Testimony of a Good 
Conscience." Two Vol., London, 1753. 

"In I mo., 1660, John Bett and John Borton, of Aino, Northampton- 
shire, were taken out of their own houses by soldiers, and committed 
to prison for refusing the oaths. Also, in the year 1665, John Bett, 
John Barton, Edward Hardley and John Holcroft, (poor laborers) had 
their goods taken by distress for a fine of four shillings each, imposed 
for four weeks' absence from their parish church." 

In the year 1674, Oxfordshire; taken by distress for meetings this 
year, from John Holcroft, John Borton and .Thomas Mercer, i pound, 
15 shillings. From a search made in Friends' "Records, London, it is 
probable that John, the immigrant, with Ann, his wife ,were the only 
converts to the Friends' faith in the Borton family; and being .persecuted 
not only by the established church of England, but possibly by members 
of his own family, he sought a home and refuge in the new country. 
He became a Friend, as shown above, many yeJirs prior to immigration; 
and the dates of births of all of his children except the youngest daughter, 
who was born in America, are to be found in Friends' Records of Eng- 
land. There are Bortons who still reside at Aynho and vicinity, and^^ll 
Bortons in America, so far as known, descended from John and Ann; 
and the ancestry in all cases has so far been traced back to these pro- 
genitors.

10 BORTON FAMILY 

Jersey, 1765, page 151-152, "Transactions of the Assembly of West 
New Jersey, Session 1682, ist to nth, i mo.," states that John Borton 
was chosen in connection with William Brightwen for constable of 
London tenth. John Borton in his will left his sons, John Jr. and 
William, shares which he owned in the above named tenth. Throughout 
the county of Burlington, a tenth of land was considered as 32,000 acres 
and the inhabitants thereof were entitled to ten representatives in the 
General Assembly of West Jersey, which Assembly was empowered to 
appoint persons to fill all public offices from Counsellors to Constable. 

We have been able to trace the genealogy of the Borton Family, 
in America, back to John Borton and Anne, his wife, who came from 
the Parish of Aynho. Northampton county, England, in the year 1679, 
in company with several families of Friends. In this company of 
Colonial Immigrants were the progenitors of the Gardiner, Moore, 
Prickitt, Evans, Collins, Engle, and Troth families. 

John Borton, with Anne, his wife, and seven children, two boys and 
five girls, settled at Hillsdown, on the Northampton River, now known 
as Rancocas Creek, New Jersesy. The land which he entered was a 
tract in Evesham township, now Mount Laurel, Burlington county, New 
Jersey. The tract of land extended from a line now occupied by the 
Mount Holly and Moorestown turn pike to Rancocas Creek, and was 
known as the "Borton Tract." 
f his six daughters, but does not name them 

John Borton died at Hillsdown in the year 1687, leaving a will dated 
28th day of the 5th month, and proved the nth month and 14th day of 
the same year. He named his son John and William and enumerates -i* 

The "Borton Tract" of land, by will, became the property of John 
Jr. and William; and from them to their descendants. A portion heired 
by John Borton Jr., he felt to his son John, from whim it descended 
to his son, Abram Borton. 

Abram was a son of'John Borton and Elizabeth Lord. He married 
Rachel Engle. They had a son, Uriah Borton, who married Mary 
Collins. He heired a portion of the "Borton Tract" on which he lived, 
and at his death, left the same to Joseph Borton, their only son, who 
married Sarrah Jessup. 

Joseph was born on the homestead of his ancestors, April 29th, 
1800; here he resided until 1835, when he purchased 127 acres of land 
Jf in possession of the family as late as 1882. We insert a cut taken from 
on the Rancocas and Burlington road, in the township of Westhampton. 
Here he resided until his death, April 9th, 1868. His wife Sarah, died 
26-9 mo., 1876, age 53 years. X Portions of the "Borton Tract" remained 
a photo of a portion of the "Borton Tract" showing the farm buildmgs 
at the present time. (See Frontispiece.)

John Borton, Jr., and William Borton purchased land on North- 
ampton River, Burlington County, New Jersey, in lo mo., 1681, one 
hundred and seventy-five acres, and one hundred and fifty acres respec- 
tively.

and signed by a number of persons who vouch that they have "Known ye 
sd John and Anne Borton these many years, and that they have walked

It may seem strange, but yet we believe it to be true, that the 
original log house, built by John Borton, the inniiigrant in 1682, is still 
in existence and is being put to daily use. This building is about 18x24 
feet in size and one and one-half stories in height, and is made of hewn 
Red Cedar logs, brought down to a uniform size of 4-6 inches. It was 
formerly a part of the residence of John Borton Jr., and later of Pember- 
ton. See page illustration. In 1850. it was moved from the "Borton 
Tract" to Masonville, the distance of one mile, by Charles Darnell. 
It has been resided without and plastered within and is occupied for store 
purposes by A. A. Zelley. See cut on page opposite. What proof do we 
have as to its identity? First, it formed a home on the "Borton Tract." 
and is built of Red Cedar, a timber which dees not decay. It was built 
before saw mills were introduced into Burlington county. New Jersey,, 
as with access to mills no one would incur so great an expense, in pre- 
paring the material ; further, the logs have been hewn by an expert. 
The writer has observed much timber craft and knows full well that ai 
broad-ax cannot be skillfully used, except by one who has been carefully 
trained, and has had much practice with that tool and the person who 
did this work in so early a day must have come from the ship-yards 
of England. How home like it must have seemed to the Borton immi- 
grants, when they took up their abode in this clean, cedar scented, neat 
little home, so snugly tucked away in the great, primeval forests of New 
Jersey.

III. A Testimony from Evesham Monthly Meeting m New Jersey,. 
Concerning Obadiah Borton. 

"He was Ijorn in the township of Evesham, New Jersey, in the year 
1708 and the influence of divine grace made early impression on his 
mind whilst young in years, which led him to love solitude and sobriety, 
and to shun those vices incident to youth. About the twenty-second 
year of his age, a dispensation of gospel ministry was committed to him. 
He was very awful at times in his public approach before the divine 
majesty in prayer, and often engaged to exhort friends to humility, and 
to shun arrogancy and pride, being a good example herein himself; so 
that his upright, innocent deportment, gained him the good esteem 
of his friends and others. He departed this life the 7th of the seventh 
month, 1761, age fifty-three years. A minister thirty-one years and 
was buried at Evesham, New Jersey."

Stockton Borton, Sewing Machine Liventor. 

By the death of Stockton Borton, on 7-1 mo., 1907, the sewing ma- 
chine industry sufifered a loss in a man to whom it owes a huge debt, as it 
is probable that but for his inventive genius and mechanical skill those 
manufacturers who are large users of sewing machines would be unable 
to turn out the enormous product in their respective lines which the 
growing trade of the world requires. Manufacturing in many lines has 
been made easier both for the employer and the employee by means of 
Mr. Borton's numerous inventions. 

Mr. Borton died at Lakewood, N. J., a few days after returning 
from Jamaica, where he had gone for his health. 

He was born in Moorestown, Burlington county, X. J., in 1853. 
his parents being members of the Society of Friends. 

Borton's boyhood days were spent in his nitive town, and on the 
occasion of his funeral Dr. Haines, a practicing physician, made an in- 
teres+^ino; address, having been a student in the same class. 

Mr. Borton leaves a widow and two sisters. The funeral ceremonies 
w.-re held in the Friends' Meeting House in Moorestown on Thursday. 
]0-i mo.. 1907. interment taking place in the Colestown Cemetery, near 
Moorestown. 

His ear;v tastes led Mr. Borton to meclianical lines and lie first 




Stockton Borton 



GENEALOGY. 31 

started to work in Philadelphia, becoming- interested in the sewing' 
machine business in' the '70s. In 3rd mo., 188 1, he was employed by the 
Willcox & Gibbs Sewing Machine Company, his immediate superior be- 
ing Mr. Charles H.. Willcox, of that company, who was present at the 
funeral. At the time of his death, the immediate cause of wdiich was 
hemorrhag-e of the brain, Mr. Borton had been in the continuous service 
of the Wilcox & Gibbs Company for over twenty-five years. 

Some of Borton's inventions are marvels of the sewing machine 
industry. For Willcox & Gibbs alone, he took out over fifty patents. 
His wonderful mechanical mind was specially directed towards the in- 
vention and perfection of high-class sewing machines capable of being- 
operated at great speed, with the maximum productive powder and con- 
sequent reduced cost to manufacturers. 

One of Borton's inventions had particular reference to the upholstery 
trade, namely, the Overlock Lace Edger. This machine was primarily 
designed for finishing underwear, on which work it is extensively used, 
but it w^as soon found to be of even greater service for making a strong 
and sightly edge on lace curtains. It is estimated that since 1896, when 
the Overlock corded edge first , appeared on the market, upwards of 
250,000,000 pairs of lace curtains have been finished on this machine. 

It is to inventors like Borton that a large part of the material 
prosperity of the United States in the manufacturing line is due. 

Most of J\lr. T)3rton's work in connection with the Willcox & Gibbs 
machines invented by him had been for a number of years carried on at 
the Brown & Sharp Manufacturing Company's works. Providence, R. I., 
where all their machines ^re made.

Biographies of Japheth L. and Phoebe S. Prickitt, together with 
family and neighboorhood history, written by D. J. Prickitt. 

Phoebe S. Prickitt was the eleventh of twelve children born to 
Josiah and Margaret Sharpe Borton, six sons and three daughters being 
born in N. J. and three near Lumberton, some seven miles north of 
Wilmington, Court House, of Clinton county, Ohio, where the subject 
of this memoir was born, 5-8 mo., 18 [5, dying near AA'est Unity, Ohio, 
26-1 mo., 1901, aged 85 years, 5 months and 21 days. 

Her ancestors came from England and are of Scotch-Irish and 
Welsh lineage. Her paternal ancestors came to America in 1677 and 
settled in Burlington county, N. J. and judging from the Bortons, Sharps, 
Engles and others there and elsewhere their number is legion. But 
you never heard of a Borton being in the penitentiary, however guilty 
they may have been. 

Josiah Borton and family came to Ohio in 1812, settling on the lands 
on which he died in 1844, in his 64th year, and accumulated some eleven 
hunderd acres in Clinton and Auglaize counties, giving each child a 
farm and retaining one hundred sixty acres for himself. He engaged 
in farming, even had a small distillery, I am sorry to say, but it was 
not disreputable then. His better judgment caused him to discontinue 
the business very soon. He also had a smithy and he and two or three 
of his sons were experts for the times. 

Her mother died about 1819 and in 1820 Plannah Fairfield, a native 
of Virginia, took the mother's place to whom were born two sons. She 
dying in 1824, Sarah Pendry took her place as stepmother in 1828 or 
1829, dying in 1846. She came from Charleston, S. C, to Kentucky, 
starting in the month of February as the peach was coming in bloom 
and although six weeks on the road the peach was just blooming in 
central Kentucky when she arrived. They came on horseback or on 
foot, carrying their worldly efifects on their backs or pack horses. Those 
were the days that tried the souls of men and women as the red man 
was troublesome. Mrs. Pendry was left a widow by a former husbn nd 
and had given shelter to a sickly young man. When the Indians came

returned she found the boy had been thrown into the fire. She dressed 
his burns and when able to travel took such g-oods as were needful and 
fled on horseback across the Ohio river. 

Phoebe o-rew to robust womanhood inured to the labors and toils 
of the hardv pioneer life. Could shear the sheep, card, spin and weave 
wool cotton or flax, the latter of which she would pull and put tlirough 
all the processes — break, hackle, scutch, spin, 'weave, bleach, cut a'ld 
make into garments. Within the past three years she spun som^ tlax 
on the "little wheel" which ]\Iary Crumrine wove into toweling- and her 
oldest son is in possession of a checked linen apron of her make from 
raw material which he wore in his infantile years. She. like son^e of 
her bv'itliers. was a born mechanic, and could cut and make almost ai^y 
g-arment without a pattern — after the olden style and some of tli.! newer 
ones. Could decorate them with needle work and trimming. She un- 
doubredlv stamped the aptness for mechanics on her children. 

J\e]:giouslv her ancestors were Friends and her father srroxe against 
the impression that he had a call to the ministry of that church. Her 
aunt, Sarah Engle, mother of Edith A. Thorne, whom a very few re- 
member, was an acceptable minister among Friends. 

She became a n.iember of the United Brethren church in AA'est Unity, 
I think, during the ministry of John Northland and so far as know re- 
mained such and although not demonstrative her older children can 
remmebr her reading the scriptures to and praying for them. Hers w^as 
a busv life, full of cares, toil and much sufTering. 

Japheth Leeds Prickitt, second of seven sons and four daughters of 
Isaac and Dorothea Joyce Prickitt, was born three miles east of Medford, 
Burlington county, X. J., died 14-4 mo.. 1893, ^&ed yj years, 8 months 
and 9 days. 

His father's family are all gone, the father, mother and brother 
next younger dying within three days, and the youngest on the U. S. 
man of war, Kickapoo, in Mobile Bay, 1864. 

J. L. lived at home, tilling- the soil, cutting and hauling cedar and 
maple timber from swamps, attending the country school in the neigh- 
borhood, thus securing a sufficient education to conduct such lousiness 
as fell to his lot. 

About his twentieth year he engaged with his grandfather, Danine 
Joyce, who owned a saw mill and lathes and manufactured material for 
chairs, which was hauled to Philadelphia, twentv miles distant. Here 
he was engaged for a number of years, mostly doing the team work, 
hauling chair stuff to the city. 

He worked for Isaac Newton in Pennsylvania one summer, farming 
and hauling dairy products to the Philadelphia market. Newton was 
one of the first, if not the first. Commissioner of Agriculture, and it is 
said was so interested in the improvement of sheep husbandry as to

ask Congress for an appropriation of five thousand dollars for the im- 
portation of Hydraulic Rams. 

In 3rd month, 1838, he and Aaron Borton, brother-in-law to J. R. 
Cliffton. Sr., and Benjamin Borton came to Clinton county, Ohio, carry- 
ing their effects in knapsacks, the journey occupying three weeks. They 
stopped at the home of Josiah Borton, uncle to Aaron. 

I mig'ht say in passing that J. L.'s father had before this time been 
engaged in l)utchering at Cincinnati and was considered an expert. 
None of his descendants follow the business from choice. 

After his landing in Ohio, he engaged to w^ork for John Borton, wdio 
carried on a cabinet shop and farming, wdiere he soon became a fair 
workman, as a few pieces of furniture in possession of his children will 
attest. 

Here he became acquainted with Phoebe S. Borton. The acquaint- 
ance ripened into friendship, and with the approval of her father they 
were married, 27-12 mo., 1838. No wedding arch or march to sound of 
pealing organ or jingling piano, costly supper, wedding tour to Chicago 
or Niagara in palace car, but on a timber wagon to the squire's and home 
to a supper of mush and milk. Not much sentiment in that! 

Gathering together a few of the nc'cessary articles of furniture they 
began housekeeping in a log cabin west of Lumberton, where their son, 
Daniel J., was born. Soon after they moved to a one and a half story 
log house near the paternal home, w here Sarah J. and James H. were 
born. 

In 1844 they built a house on forty-two acres of the home place, 
which was deeded to the wife 1)}' her father, where they li\'ed till 10 mo., 
1845. Here their fourth child, Anna ]\I., was born. 

John R. Cliffton Sr. came do\\'n from A\'illiams county and praised 
the country so highly that they sold out, and leaA-ing the associations 
of brothers, sisters, and friends, journey to the nonli, accompanied by 
S. L. Seward and wife, who was Martha Anderson. After eleven days' 
journey they reached their goal, staying the last night at Benj. Borton's. 

They purchased of George Kellog the quarter section now occupied 
by the heirs of Henry Emerick and Israel Mattern, in the northeast 
corner at the elm tree south of Fayette, S. L. Sew^ard taking the north- 
west corner forty, where Stahl now lives. Here they engaged in farm- 
ing. S. L. Sew^ard's brother, Amasa, soon came and a cabinet sho]) was 
erected, and furniture and undertaking went together with toils of fell- 
ing the forests and culti\-ating the virgin soil. 

The howl of the wolf was heard and the deer pastin-ed the wheat 
too closely at times. Game was plenty, so plenty that Giles Harrington 
wished he had not promised to carry all the squirrels Sam and j\Iace 
would kill in an afternoon. AA'hat they killed in less than three hours 
satisfied him. 

^^'hile living in Gorham to\\-nship, the father niade a journey on

horseback to Clinton county by way of W'apakoneta. also to X. J., 
from which pkice he was accompanied by his sister, Sarah S. Prickitt, 
who in time l^ecame the wife of Adam Gettings. 

The nearest markets were Ach'ian and Maumee. The jurist mill 
nearest was Bird's mill, on Mill Creek, three-fourths mile southeast 
of what is no^\• Zone postoffice, but usually they went to Canandaigua, 
on Bean creek, and for lumber to Chatfield's on Bean creek, east of 
Zone. 

Hosea Harrington manufactured black and white salts from the 
ashes left from the log heaps of the clearings, selling the salts usually 
in Adrian, Michigan. 

Hosea was the nearest neighbor and preachecl some excellent ser- 
mons from the Free Will Ba[)tist standpoint. l)ut went insane on the 
question as to ^\•hether the dead will recognize each other in the s])irit 
world. His was a mild insanity and he alternated between the jail at 
Ottokee and his home. 

The courts in those early days were held in Maumee, and 1 remem- 
ber of father going on horseback to Maumee as juror. Uncle Jimmy 
Riddle was on the same jury. AX'hen father came home T got m\- hrst 
school reader, Sander's Third Reader. Heretofore I had used AX'ebster's 
Elementary Spelling Book and The Introduction to the English Reader, 
b}'^ Lindley Murray. 

Here was born their tifth child, John B. In 1848 or '49, I'\dton 
county was struck off from AA'illiams, Defiance and Eucas, and they were 
in Fulton instead of Lucas count\'. 

AA'hile lixdng here in the spring of 1846 an orchard was planted. 
The trees were from the nurser}- of Benjamin Borton. who carried 
the grafts from Xew Jersey. 

The children attended school in the log school house a few rods 
west of the elm tree. Of the teachers, .Vnnette Deming. now the wife 
of Uncle John (Tand)er, of Fa}'ette, and Hope Jane Verity, sister of 
Judge O. B. Verity, of Fulton county, are remembered. Hope Jane 
taught two or three weeks at the home of Joseph Ely, father of Mrs. 
Hannah Mclntvre, which, of course, was contrary to law, but fake and 
Dan got what they needed in "lickings" and she was sent to the school 
liouse to finish the term. 

Th.e Presbyterians held services often at Air. Ely's, and Hosea Har- 
rington preached in the school house often and acceptabl}'. W hen he 
warmed up with his subject he would pull off his coat and if necessary 
his vest. 

Camp meetings were held on camp grounds about a mile northeast 
of S. B. Darby's, on the lands owned by O. G. Greeley, who, by the way, 
was born a few miles from wdiere the writer of these lines was. 

In the late summer or early fall of 1849 the farm was sold to one 



74 BORTON FAMILY 

Singer, and the following March, 1850, the family moved into W'm. 
Cliff ton's house, staying there till July 17 following. 

While here a scourge of scarlet fever \'isited the neighborhood, and 
the oldest daughter, Sarah Jane, died of it. D. J. and Anna Maria were 
very sick and neither ever fully recovered from its effects. Here Abby 
E. Drake was born in May. 

The father alternated between home and \\'est Unity , where he and 
S. L. Seward purchased the saw mill of S. N. Baker. He also bought 
the "New Orleans Drug and Grocery Store" of E. E. Thorne and Dr. 
Jos. Thorne was made his agent to carry on the store. Meantime, a 
house was built on what is now a part of the public school ground. The 
house was changed and is now the home of Comrade John Robnolt. 

17-7 month they moved into town, sleeping the first night at Dr. 
Thome's. Of those who lived in Unity at that time Ijut few remain 
who live there now. Those of the Bohner family — Comrade Jacob and 
Katy Mohr, Mrs. Skinner, Geo, Rings, and those of H. H. Peppard's 
family, born in 1850 and before, Justus Mimson and his mother, I think 
are all. 

The mill and store engrossed attention till the store was sold to 
Benjamin Borton. AVhile in possession of the mill a good living was 
made, but no fortune. Seward, after two or three years, sold his interest 
in the mill to his partner and everything went as usual. 

The Plank Road was built from the northwest corner of G. H. 
■Ritchie's east across Bean Creek a few rods from Johnson's mills. The 
school house, which is now a part of Denman's drug store, stood where 
AA^m. Clay's residence is. and was used for religious services. 

Rev. A\'ood and H. yi. Taft had a select school in the upper part 
cf the foundry, which stood al)out on the line between Mrs. Gill's and 
Jo'iU Hollington's. It is now used as Combs' li^^ery stable. 

The old school house was replaced by the two story house 32x52, 
built in 1854, G. AA'. Money, contractor and Inulder. John Rings, J. L. 
Prickitt and P. D. Benson, I think, were directors and l)uilding com- 
mittee. 

Anna ]\[., the second daughter, died in 1831, and Josiah B., Mary E. 
and I. C. F. ^vere born. Life in the usual way went on. Sickness and 
death are ever present. 

L). I. and I. H. attended the village schools regularly except wdien 
someone came with oxen to haul logs on the skidway, then J. H. 
objected to going — would rather drive the cattle. In 3rd month, 1854, 
the Pike's Peak fever struck Daniel J., so he and Thos. J. Coslet started 
west, and as the fever seemed to have partially subsided they only 
got to Palmvra. Mo., where Eli Anderson was living. They hired out 
to work on the farm, Coslet returning after har\est and D. J. taking

an eieht months' term of school, returnino- in 6t]i month, i860, after the 
nomination of A. Lincohi for president. 

The okl mill was al)out worn ont and in the winter of '60 and "61 
a new one, a portable, was pnrchased and D. J. concluded not to return 
to Missouri, wdiere he had contracted to teach a twelve months' term. 
The new mill was started in April, 1861, after a few days' instruction 
from Uncle Joseph Burkholder, and run ])y home forces. 

In April came Lincoln's call for seventy-five thousand men and D. 
T. packed his valise to become a soldier in the old 14th O. V. L, with 
Allegar, Moudy, Ewers, Burwell and others, l)ut his parents prevailed 
on him to stay until the mill was paid for. So on August 20 he enlisted, 
his brother, J. H., A\'m. Rings, Allegar, Allgire, Russell, Hinman. Hart- 
man, Scannel, Hansey, Skinner and a host leaving the 10-9 mo., for 
Columlnis to become a part of the ist O. \\ C, but not liking the 
situation went to ]\Ionroeville and became Co. H. 3rd O. \\ C. In 
1864 the mill and other property was sold to the Grindles. John B., 
Thom. Russell and John Rings in the fall of 1864 went to Gallatin, Tenn., 
and were employed in the commissary and (piartermaster departments 
under A\'. A. Hunter, formerly editor and proprietor of the firs" paper 
published in this town. 

The war ended in April and D. J. and J. H. were paid oft at Colum- 
bus, 15-8 mo., 1865, having served almost four years. D. J. married 
Lvdia G. Borton, 4-10 mo., following and has ever since li\-ed on the 
Benjamin Borton farm. 

Li the spring of 1866, father's family moved to the Geo. Carpenter 
farm one mile east and half mile north of town. James w^ent west and 
worked at bridge building and carpentering for the B. & ]\L railway in 
Iowa. He came back and married ]\Irs. Eunice Axtell in 1869. \\'ent to 
Redwillow county, Xeb., in 1872. accompanied by Abby E. ; J. H., after

J. B. learned blacksmithing, working in Hamer with John Kosier, 
Ft. AWavne and Kendallville. Ind., Lexington, Ky., and with Nate Stoner 
in Unity, leaving A\'est Unity in 6th month, 1872, with his wif? — having 
married ]\Iarie IMcCue in 1870 — going to Portland, Ore., and to Jack- 
son county, wdiere he engaged in hydraulic mining and is now in Forest 
Grove, Ore., farming, smithing and threshing. 

Abby E. married I. N. Drake late in 1872 at Ft. McPherson and 
followed the life of a soldier's wife at Ft. ^McPherson and Ft. D. A. 
Russell, near Cheyenne. A\'yo.. accompanied the army, after the Big

1878. Went west to j. II. Prickitt's in l.linois, in 1880, then to Los- 
Aneeles and Pasadena; then to San Francisco, caring- for Mrs. Ma\'herr\\

four lots and moved to town in 1888. where father died in the spring of

IV. Benjamin Borton was born 5-4 mo.. 176:, in Burlington county, N. 
J., was married to Charity Rogers, 16-3 mo., 1780. Obadiah Borton Sr. 
died before Benjamin, and Job Borton, his sons, had reached their 
majority, and a provision was made in his will, that they be taught a 
trade, or otherwise, as his executors might elect. Benjamin l)ecame a 
distiller of essential oils. It is not definitely known whether he was 
apprenticed to the trade or not. Tradition says that lie distilled tlie 
first peppermint oil ever distilled in .\merica, and Borton's l)ran(l of this 
oil stood at the head of the eastern market, in all of tlie early vears 
of the drug trade. The business of distillino- these oils has been fol- 
lowed l)y tlic descendents of Benjamin and Charity Borton, e\-er since 
his day. and this fact has helped in tracing out this brancli of the 
Borton family. 

Benjamin Borton immigrated from New Jerse}' to (Oxford Tp., 
Gurnsey countv, Ohio, in 1804, and entered a section of land, situated 
in that townshi]), on the old Wheeling road, about two miles west and 
a little soutli of l-'airNiew, and about one mile north of the Baltimore 
(^ Ohio railroad. 

Benj'i mill's remoxal to Ohio was. no douljt, due to the abundance 
of Sassafras timber and jjennyroyal, from \\'hich the oil could be ex- 
tracted, that brought ready casii on the Philadelphia market — a coni- 
modit\' \\liich was much needed b)' the early settlers of the west. The 
homestead where Benjamin Borton wrought and toiled has passed into 
other hands. The present farm house and Fletcher M. F. Church built 
on this land are shown in cuts on opi)Osite page. .\lso, the graves where 
Benjamin and Charity liorton, and some other members of the family

Bethuel Abies said that he felt as if the Good Being had been

goodness of God. I am amongst the first residents of the township. I 
was born in 1806, within a mile of this spot, amongst the wolves, Indians, 
and snakes. My father died when I was six years old, and left me the 
oldest of the family upon mother's hands. John, who has just spoken, 
was next oldest. ■ One night he and I, as the wolves were troublesome, 
penned the sheep right up against the cabin. In the night the wolves 
came and howled and pushed about the house. The slieep were killed 
and wounded. It made our little hearts quake at the danger. Once I 
went for mv uncle, Reuben Borton. through a wheat patch for water. 
I was terribly afraid of snakes. I stepped in my bare feet on t\vo 
copper heads while I was going, and also on an old hoop which flew 
up and struck me. I jumped so high each time that 1 brought no water 
back. My uncle found and killed the snakes. This is the way the 
children ^vere brought up. ^iliere were no near neighbors; for miles 
around there w^as nothing Init paths. One day 1 was riding on an 
errand through the woods on "Kate,'* and suddenly a man's hand came 
from behind a tree on my thigh. I told of it and was informed it 
was a robber looking for land buyers, who had money. I escaped be- 
cause I w^as a boy. In a few days we heard of a murder on the Maginnis 
farm. The hand of Providence was around us. or we could not have 
lived. We suffered. I was out after the cows one day. and in crossing 
a creek walked on a log into the stream and jumped to get over. I lit 
in the mud and w^ent down and down, and could not get out — the 
more I stepped the more I was fastened. I would have l)een there to 
this day, if providentially some chips had not floated near me. and 
enabled me little by little to reach a slim branch above me. I learned 
the blacksmith business. I made the tools to clear this country. I 
made the hose, the axes and the mattocks for the settlers as they camo 
I was once wdien a boy about frozen, being taken from the horse in- 
sensible when coming from Gilliland's mill. I had to ride several miles 
after night, and it was only Providence that led Uz. Shores to save my 
life. I was here when there were not thirty people in the township, 
and had this meeting been thirty years ago I would have seen here 
many people I knew in earliere and subsequent days. I know all of 
, Pennyroyal, and know how to make the oil too. In the early days we 
boiled it in kettles; now^ a four-horse load is needed to fill a "gum." It 
was hard work to gather Pennyroyal. It grows by "grasshopper 
springs." The springs near it are generally filled with grass-hoppers, 
and the field with w^eeds, etc. 

The above is an extract from a talk given by Bethuel Abies, at the 
"Pennyroyal Reunion," which is held annually in Oxford Twp.. Guernsey 
County, Ohio. Bethuel Abies, was the oldest son of John Abies and 
Ann Borton, daughter of Benjamin, whose early home was in Oxford 
Twp. He resided there before the township had a name.

104 BORTON FAMILY 

\Vm. Borton, Esq., then delivered an address, the "Histcrv of 
Pennyroyaldom/' as follows: 

Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: — By reference to the pro- 
gramme you will see that the duty assigned to me is to give a brief 
history of Pennyroyaldom. Many inquiries are made as to the meaning 
of Pennyroyaldom, its boundaries and how the name originated, etc. 
In answer I will state that my grandfather, Benjamin Borton, emigrated 
to this township from the State of New Jersey in 1804 and settled on 
the line of the Old Wheeling Road, leading from Wheeling to Zanes- 
ville, said road having been previously marked out by Colonel Zane 
under a contract with the government. Pennyroyal, being of a spon- 
taneous growth, soon made its appearance upon the newly cleared lands; 
and he, having learned the art of distilling it in the State of New Jersey, 
soon commenced the process of distilling the well known oil of penny- 
royal in this township; and his sons, grandsons, and great-grandsons 
have kept it up ever since. The pennyroyal plant is a native of North 
America and differs from the English pennyroyal and all other plants 
having the same name and possesses valuable medical qualities. But 
the name Pennyroyaldom, as applied to Oxford township, is compara- 
tively of recent date and originated from a reply of our worthy citizen, 
Mr. Morris Morton, while Commissioner of the county, to some com- 
plaint in reference to high taxes, "that when every thing else failed we 
would go out and pull pennyroyal enough to pay them," and at the ex- 
piration of Mr. Jonathan Rose's term of otitice as County Commissioner, 
also of Oxford township, at a social meeting called by him, it was said 
to be "in honor of Pennyroyaldom." Its boundaries are not limited, but 
Oxford township is claimed to be the center. But a "history" of penny- 
royaldom means something more than has been said and indeed more 
than time will permit to be said on this occasion. Hence we will con- 
tent ourselves with a few facts and incidents connected- with it. some 
of which are written and others traditional. Guernsey county, was 
erected or organized in 1810 from territory formed by territory formerly 
included in the counties of Belmont and Muskingum and was so called 
because a large number of its inhabitants were from the Isle of Guernsey. 
James Killon of "Tinker Hill" in Oxford township was one of the first 
Commissioners. Oxford township was organized, of course, at the 
same time, but there is no record until the year 1813. 

Wm. Borton: Last year I was restricted to a history of pennyroyal; 
today I am free to say what I will, but have no speech. I will refer 
only to three circumstances: In 1833, when I was only seven years old, 
in the days of horse mills, people got up early. My father rose early 
one morning to go to the horse mill. He found the heavens ablaze with 
meteors, seemingly falling like snow flakes, and as thick and fast. He 
wakened the family, and I saw the great sight, and it so impressed me 
that I remember it vividly to this day. ]\Iy father went on to the mill, 



GENEALOGY. 105 

whilst everybody else, through alarm, stayed at home. He soon got his 
grinding. He ever prided himself upon the courage which made him 
go. The second incident was at school at Center, when Daniel Patterson 
announced to the astounded pupils that there would be a "Polemic." 
Yes, a "Polemic." What that horrible thing was I could not imagine, 
for the teacher was a terror. Samuel \'\ and Robert Armstrong and 
William b'errell knew something of it. It was explained. We were to 
debate, "Which is the most useful animal, the cow or the horse?" I 
was put up barefooted for the horse. My speech was, "You can go to 
mill on a horse, antl you can't on a cow." The horse won. The other 
incident is as to my procuring a school certificate, in 1848, from Charles 
Armour. l)efore the school system of the state was reformed. T went 
with fear and trem1)ling. J. O. Grimes was in the ofhce, with his feet 
on the table. Grimes' sole was worn. I wished him out of my sight. 
"Bound Ohio," said Armour. I did, and told its capital. "What is the 
capital of Pennsylvania?" he asked. I had fortunately just heard and 
answered. I was proud of the beautifully printed and elegantly filled 
certificate he gave me. He was a pretty writer.

THE PENNYROYAL REUNION. 

This annual gathering is held in the township of Oxford, Guernsey 
county. Ohio. It was in this township that Benjamin Borton and 
Charity Rogers, his wife, located a home of one section of land in the 
year 1804 and many of their descendants still reside in the locality of 
the early home, hence we have thought proper to insert some extracts 
from letters sent to. and speeches made at this re-union, by some of 
those connected with and descended from Benjamin Borton. 

Col. I. D. Taylor and Hon. \\'m. Borton were on the ])rooram to 
speak on the "Recollections of Old Center." The former was absent, 
but the latter responded as follows: 

I do not consider myself a very old man. and to give me this 
subject is not a compliment to a man of my looks and age; but. after 
thinking the matter over. I find that I can go back prettv far in the 
past. And to do so we must leave these green fields, these present im- 
provements — leave the mowing machine and the threshing machine — 
and we find ourseK'es in imagination in an unbroken forest, where the 
tinkle of the cowbells, the sharp crack of the hunter's rifie or the hea\'y 
stroke of the woodman's axe are the only sounds to break the solemn 
stillness. And to come to old Center: The original house was burned 
down, and one erected near the present site of hewed log's. My first 
teacher's name was Anguish, and I thought that the man's name and 
nature corresponded, for he did i)ut more anguish into his administra- 
tion than I thought to be proper. He taught a loud school, where every 
scholar studied out loud, and tlie noise produced was a perfect bedlam. 
Here he gave a specimen of reading. "A hungry bear in walking mood, 
came from a leafy neighboring wood." etc. I'hen a man named Patter- 
son taught for a number of years. Oh. those long, dreary years, to me. 
at least. I went into the room a: little late my first morning and began 
out loud to get my lesson, when bf)th teacher and scholars commenced 
laughing. The custom had been changed. I remember of going to the 
old Pisgah church to hear Rev. Keil. who is still livingv-and it was be- 
fore the fioor was laid. Strangely enough, I can still remember the

August LO, 1881. 
To My Friends of Pennyroyaldom : — 

It is impossible to be with you in the flesh, but I am with you in 
spirit at your grand re-union today. There can be no passion, no emo- 
tion any purer than that which bears us back to the spot which was the 
cradle of our childhood, the playground of our boyhood, the theatre of 
our manhood. Has the Holy Book a passage more deeply touching 
than that which pictures to us the daughters of a captive race, in their 
desolation of soul, weeping by the waters of Babylon when they remem- 
berer their lost homes and the vanished towers of Zion? Has profane 
verse a line more exquisitely eloquent than that which tells us of the 
brave young Greek — beautiful and radiant as his native land — bleeding 
;ind dying on the plains of Latium, with his darkening eyes fixed on 
Greece? Has political ki.story a grander incident than that of Warren 
Hastings, the dictator of India, in the midst of all his ambitious schemes, 
all through his struggles, his triumphs, his crimes and splendors, ever 
and always cherishing in his purer heart the hope and purpose of once 
more returning to his ancestral home and spen<ling there in calmness 
and cfoodness the evening- of his stormy life? And so it is today with all 
the Pennyroyalists who are out of Pennyroyaldom. "In our minds," 
we are ail there with you at the re-union. We all landed there this 
morning, in the exact spot where we were best acquainted, on the spot 
most endeared to us, and which the dust of our people for generations 
has sanctified. 

Yes, we are all with you today. We are visiting around among the 
old patriarchs and their posterity. We are at the Dillons. Marlows. 
Fergusons, Morton, Heads. Wherrys, Moores. Cranstons. Taylors, 
Andersons, Kennons, Ableses, Likeses, Fairview. Middletown, Bunker 
Hill, on the "Pike," on the "old Wheeling road." We are in our visions 
and memories, riding down young hickory trees by the Center school 
house, carrying water from the "cool spring," going to spelling schools, 
playing "blackman" with the Taylors, Scurrs, Marlows, Merrymans, 
Mortons. Fergusons and Wherrys, all boys together, having a general 
good time. Wc are planting mint and tobacco, pulling pennyroyid. 
hoeing corn, climbing cherry trees, borrowing w itermelons from 
neighlxn-s on the sly. distilling wormseed, going to ap])lc cut- 
tings and debates, running ot¥ to "Putney." (.ccasionally to a 
dance. The old chestnut trees, bee trees, coon trees, and the great 
oaks, which to us boys were held in as great esteem as were the sacred 
oaks (.f Dodona by the (irecians, in the rustling of whose leaves the 
voice of the supreme divinity was believed to be heard. 

It is astonishing how we have scattered from our nilive Penny- 



114 BORTOX FAMILY 

royaldoni. From the field to the forum, to pulpits, to senates, to gold 
fields and to foreign lands. How many of our playmates have fallen in 
battle? How many have faced the mouths of belching cannon, and 
whose blood has crimsoned the limpid waters of our fair land from 
the rock-ribbed slopes of the Cund^erland Mountains to the blood-stained 
fields of Chickamauga, who have been roused a thousand times from 
their midnight slumbers to the tented field by the long-roll and sprang 
to arms to meet to foe in defense of their own loved countrv, and today 
they wear crowns that, like the laurels of Tiberius, shall be fore\'er 
green, defiant of time and imperishable. 

How many young scholars in Pennyroyaldom today, fresh from 
their books, with the fire of sunny Attica in their brains, pant and l^urn 
to one day fiing the glory of their intellect o\'er all the country, and with 
their eloquence launch it into ecstacies and lead it captive. The pul)lic 
displays of these young chanters of the paeans of the nation swell the 
glowing current of each one's glorious career, and are so many waves 
that lift him from the strands of private life, carrying him \\ith fiving- 
colors under a full press of shining sail, out upon the broad sea, where 
all the land beholds him with delight and cheers him on his venture. 

Hoping that these re-unions may be kept ali\'e until I can attend 
one in person, I am your old schoolmate antl friend.

'•" ■ From the Borton Family. 

Clyde, Kan., Aug. i6. 1884. 

To all Pennyroyalists to whom these presents shall come, greeting: 
Know ve that we, the undersigned, sons and daughters of Pennyroyal- 
dom. hereby send greetings. W'e are with you in spirit at your re-union 
and regret we cannot be with you in the flesh. We shall ever remember 
our native land, our fathers and our mothers. The brightest diamond 
in the Kremlin of-;Russia is not good enough to deck their l)rows. We 
earnestly hope these re-unions may be kept alive, as we expect to send 
a car load of- Pennyroyalists next year. With best wishes for your 
success, we remain your friends.

John W. Borton, Baker Borton and all their wives. 

He sai"d that he was there with very little to say. He had no 
.politics to. preach, no axe to grind. My old honie was within four hun- 
dred yards of where I now stand, and about fifty years ago, if you had 
been here, you could have heard me crying. I used to sit under that 
tree "with Col. Taylor, conning our lessons and thinking of being presi- 
dent. We may be president yet. I have the size and he the intellect. 
My name is Lewis Wetzel Borton. M3' father was a great admirer of 
the old Indian fighter and named me after him. I have traveled a great 
deal since I left Pennyroyaldom; but I don't come here to advise you 
to leave. If you have a good thing here, do not leave it. I am like the 



GENEALOGY. 511 

man who always took hash when away from home, because then he 
always knew what he got. There are many tender recollections in this 
place. Yon have forgotten all your trials and tribulations, your labors 
and your cares, and have come together for a day of joy and happiness. 
You have left your plows standing idle in the furrow, while you devote 
one day to old memories and old friends. Small incidents change the 
whole course of a man's life. \ly life was changed when I went west 
to the gold mines. I have no reason to regret that step, yet I do not 
come here to blow up the west. 

A\'hile we have big crops this year, we may not have so big next 
year; and I advise you to stay right here, if you are fixed. Col. Taylor 
has told you about the railroads, those great iron arteries that span our 
continent from ocean to ocean, and from lakes to gulf. Of the white 
winged sails that dot the ocean, and of the telegraph wires that reach 
across the Atlantic, carrying the news down among sunken vessels and 
over dead men's skulls. But in a few years I expect to see ships sailing 
through the clouds, and to hear of collisions several miles in the air. 
Why, I expect to see the Capitol at Washington lifted up l:)odily and set 
out somewhere in Kansas. The people of this country can accomplish 
anything. That same fire and jyatriotism that met scarlet and steel in 
deadly combat still burns in the hearts of the American people. I have 
hel]>ed to l)uil(l up that western country, and I have built several towns 
myself. Come out "and see. You will find my latchstring hanging clear 
out in the street. I came here to see you through coal dust, and hot 
sun. tra\'eling hundreds of miles, and I want you to come to see me — 
if not all at once, come one at a time. I lo\-e Ohio, my native state, 
e\en as a man lo\es his motlier better than his wife; he could get 
another wife, but never another mother. Look at California, bright, 
aft'luent, with ri\-ers of gold, the gem of the continent. Look at Nevada, 
her brow en'circled with the pure tiara of sih'er stars. Look at all the 
inter\eiiing states, some rich, some beautiful, some magnificent. But 
liere is Ohio, last but not least; my nnother's state — the state where I 
went to school a poor bo}', knowing nothing, seeing nothing; yes, and 
reading nothing except that old United States spelling book . And in 
that I read, "M>' son, do no ill." I didn't, come here to tell you whether 
\'Ou c ught to be Democrats or Republicans — only came here to shake; 
liands with \ou. tC' meet \-(hi once again in God's country where reel

there, is the place to be. I thank God that I was made out of good old

THE OLD MUSICIAN AND HIS HARP. 

Many years have passed away, 
Golden locks have turned to gray; 
Golden ringlets once so fair, 
Time has changed to silvery hair. 
Yes, I'm near the river's side, 
Soon I'll launch upon the tide, 
Soon my boat with noiseless oar, 
Safe will pass to yon bright shore 

Chorus. 
Bring my harp to me again. 
Let me sing a gentle strain, 
Let me hear its chords once more. 
Ere I pass to yon bright shore. 
Oh, those chords, with magic power 
Take me back to childhood's hour; 
To that cot beside the sea. 
Where I knelt at mother's knee. 
But that mother, she is gone. 
Calm she sleeps beneath a stone. 
While I wander here alone. 
Sighing for a brighter home. 

Chorus. 
Soon I'll be among the blest. 
Where the weary are .nt rest ; 
Soon ni tread the golden shore. 
Singing praises evermore. 
Yes, my boat is on the stream, 
' can see the water's gleam ; 
5oon I'll he where angels roam 

Chorus. 

The day's pleasure was enlivened by the singing of "Auld Lanj; 
Syne," with words written specially for the occasion by John D. Talbot, 
Esq., of Barnesville, as follows: 

AULD LANG SYNE. 

Should oldacfjuaintance be forgob 

Old memories never come? 
)( Dear old harp. I'm going lionitv - . , -., 

Should old acc|uaintancc be forgot 

And Pennvrovaldom ?

Chorus. 
For Pennyroyaldom, my friends, 

For Pennyroyaldom, 
We'll take the cup of kindness yet, 
For Pennyroyaldom. 

Our feet have trod these hills and vales, 

We've heard the forests hum; 
The woodman's axe hath reared these homrs 

In Pennyroyaldom. 
Chorus. 
The honored name will soon be lost, 

Old Oxford will be mum. 
By name more glorious "twill be known, 

'Tis Pennyroyaldom. 
Chorus. 
The Mortons, Bortons, Taylors, Macks, 

And many more to come, 
ihe Bells and Wherries hold their name 

In Pennyroyaldom. 
Chorus. 
The days of old make memory wild, 

Our hearts beat like a drum- 
Should old acquaintance be forgot 

And Pennyroyaldom ? 
Chorus.

AVe copy the following facts from "History of the Early Settlers 
of Franklin Township, Ful.ton County, Ohio." Compiled by A. \V. 
Fisher. Joseph Bates married Rebecca Borton, widow of Joseph Bor- 
ton. They had three children, Steven, Elnathan and Rhoda. He was 
also a grandparent to Elizabeth Bates, wife of Rolapd Borton and 
daughter of Joseph Bates, Jr. 

I find that the first settlers within the present limits of Franklin 
and the old limits of Brady, were Joseph Bates and family, wdio in 1832 
settled on the southeast quarter of section 2, town 7, north range 4 east, 
and all this country for years was known as the Bates settlement. From 
a letter from his daughter, combined with the statement of several of the 
first settlers, I have obtained the following sketch of Mr. Bates' life, 
which had become almost legendary, but I have been very careful to 
give only the facts on which the majority agree. Joseph Bates was born 
in Vermont in the year 1787. From Vermont he went to Canada, where 
he married Harried Dodge, by whom he had eight children, four sons 
and four daughters, who came with him to A\'illiams county. Truman, 
who moved with the Packards to Missouri in 1840; Thomas, who died 
on the Isthmus of Panama, while on his way to California about 1849; 
Joseph, who died in Iowa in 1867 or 1868; James, who now resides in 
Boon county, Iowa; Harriet, Mrs. Theron Landon; Belinda, Mrs. War- 
ren Hancock; Mary, Mrs. Cyrus Barrett, and Elizabeth, Mrs. Hiram 
Alvord, now of Reading, Michigan. Mr. Bates moved from Canada to 
New York, and from there he moved to Richland county, Ohio, where he 
settled in a very early day. In the summer and winter of 1830 and 183 1, 
Ezekiel Masters says: "He -took his gun, dogs, bear and wolf traps and 
150 muskrat traps and came to Harden county, where he hunted and 
trapped till spring and lived on muskrats and other game which he 
caught or shot. He bought his land in Williams county with the money 



120 BORTON FAMILY 

that he got for the bear's oil and skins, wolf scalps, coon, muskrat and 
bever skins, and had $130 in money left." In February, 1832, in the 
dead of winter, he started with his family for his new home, and cut 
his road through an unbroken wilderness from Ottawa to Defiance, and 
stopped a short time with John Perkins at Brunersburg. From there 
he went to where Pulaski now stands, and cut the road through to what 
is now the Shilling's farm where he lived for three days in his wagon 
until he built a cabin. The cabin stood near the confluence of Bates and 
Ayres runs, on the farm now owned by John Shillings, and his nearest 
neighbor was Mr. Opdyke, 12 miles away. Here he cleared some land 
and raised the first grain within the present limits of Fulton county, but 
spent the greater portion of his time hunting and trapping. In the 
spring of 1835 ^""^ ^"^'^-^ elected the first supervisor, and the first fence 
viewer in Springfield township. On June 7, 1836, his daughter, Harriet, 
married Theron Landon, who was the first person married in what 
afterwards became Millcreek township, and Miss Bates the first in the 
old limits of Brady, and no doubt the first within the limits of Fulton 
county. In 1840 he sold his farm to Wm. Ayres and bought of Asher 
Ely, the farm now owned by Jacob Schenk in sections 10 and 11. He 
first lived in a log house which stood in the field southwest of the 
present graveyard. Here on the 20th of March, 1845, his first wife died, 
and the following year he married Mrs. Joseph Borton, a sister of Ben- 
jamin, Nathan, John and Job Borton, who are so well known throughout 
this country. In the year 1852 he erected a large frame tavern, which 
was the first within the present limits of Franklin township, which he 
ran for a number of years, and the building remained as an old land- 
mark till December 30, 1885, when it was destroyed by fire. He called 
it *'J- Bates' Inn," and it was largely patronized, as the Angola road was 
then the great thoroughfare for travelers and the movers to their west- 
ern homes. He and Theron Landon cut and logged out the Angola 
road from Joseph Ely's to his place, and Mr. Cogswell cut the road from 
there to Cogswell's corners, west of the St. Joe. Mr. Bates lived on this 
farm till 1861, when he moved to Iowa and died in Storey county of that 
state, August i, 1866, at an advanced age of 79 years. 

"VI. Benjamin Borton, son of Bethuel Borton and Rebecca Cliffton, mar- 
ried Abigail Borton. Abigail was a daughter of Isaac Borton and Sarah 
Peacock and a sister of Sarah Clififton. Their children were: — 

Sarah, b. 6-12 mo., 1836; m. Thomas Heaton, b. 27-6 mo., 1828,

years of age he hired to Levi Lippincott for $100.00 a year, to work on

Nathan Borton. son of Bethuel Borton and Rebecca Ctiffton, was 
born in Burlington count}'. New Jersey. 27-10 mo.. t8io. He moved 
from New Jerse}' to Eulton count}-, Ohio, and was one of the pioneers 
of that county. He tells h.is story as follows : 

"M}- brother Bethuel Borton and myself came from the state c>f 
.\'ev> Jersey in the fall of 1835, to enter land. We had to walk several 
hun-ttred miles of the way. ^^^e went to the Bates settlement and he 
shuwed us the north half of section 8. town 10, north of rans^e 5 east. 
Wc went to Lim:i, Ohii^ and entered the same. This land is in wliat 



129 BORTON FAMILY 

is now known as German township. In the fall of 1836, we nio\e(l out 
and began to improve the land. My Ijrother, Bethuel and family, 'and 
Joseph Borton and family came in one wagon and mother, mvself, [ob, 
John, Martha Ann and Samuel in the other \vag'on. We were six weeks 
and two days on the road and reahed our destination on the 22-10 mo., 
1836. A\'e had to cut our road the last mile and a hal^ of the wav. We 
lived in the wagons until we built a house, which, was of logs on three 
sides; the roof slanted one A\"ay and was of bark, as used bv the Indians. 
For the front, quilts were hung up and in front of these we kept a large 
log heap burning to keep out wolves and bears. The same winter fohn 
and myself walked to Lima and entered 80 acres apiece for John and 
Job Borton, near the Oak Openings. 

I was elected the first Justice of the Peace of German townshij), 
and married the first couple after the township .v\-as organized, d'heir 
names were Abram AX'est and Julia Roley, 10-10 mo., 1844. I bought 
the northeast quarter, section one, in township 10, north of range one 
west, 160 acres, and Bethuel moved on to it the same fall and nn'self 
the next summer." 

Nathan Borton married Mary J. Ayers, 23-10 mo., 1839. She died 
the 17-4 mo.. i'850 and left two small children. : He then married his 
brother's widow, ]\Iary G. Borton., 21-12 mo., 1850. She was left a 
widow with five small children, who grew up to man and womanliood. 
loving him as much as they could have lo\-ed their own father. Ide was 
for many years a minister of the Society of. Friends, and died the 16-6 
mo.,. 1889, in his se\'enty-ninth year, in Toledo,,_< Vhio, at the home of 
Alice Ross, his niece, and he is buried in Friends cemeter\', Franklin 
township, Fulton county, Ohio. A good man .gone to his rest and re- 
ward. 

In contrast with the hardships endured by the Borton ])ii)neers. 
who settled in the wilds of Ohio in the. early da}'s-, we ai)pend a short 
history given by Emi'.y A. Town, the youngest daughter of Xathan 
Borton and Mary T. Ayers. My father andj went to Lincoln Nel)raska. 
where we met James Town, to whom I was married b)- the Judge of 
Probate of Lancaster county, 3-5 mo., 1872. h'rom Lincoln we rode in 
a lumber wagon to Rulon Borton's, .thirty-five miles, and from there 
to Hamilton county, where my husband .had formerly loca:ed a (|uarl;er 
section of land^ on which a .sod hou.se .had .been, l)uiit, "a dugout," size 
12x14 feet, walls and roof of sods, floor. o.f. earth, and bedstead made of 
poles. My father accompanied us to this our:-future home and wlien he 
took leave '^f us, my husband provided him with a. compas, to gui<le him 
on his way back over the plains. Our neighbors were bachelors, nu 
woman living within five miles of us. Later we l)uiU a now sod dwcl ;ng. 
iising the sod as brick, first laying two lengthwise and tlien t\\ t) cross- 
wise to bind the will together. The roof was supported by jjoIos m 
which willtAv branches was laid, then scmIs lapped like shingles. ( ) ;r

well was one hundred feet deep and curbed with pine l)oards at the top 
and l-»ottom and the water was drawn wdth two wooden l^uckets, v/ith 
pullv and a rope. Here our first child was born on the 7-4 mo., 1873. 
Five days late'" a storm, called a "blizzard," came on and lasted for 
three days. It was so dark and the air so filled with snow that voii 
could not see a building' at an)' distance and the settlers tied ri3i)cs ^o 
guide tliem irow the house to the barn and l)ack, that they migh'L care 
for the stock. These times I shall never forget. .Cattle, driven by the 
storm into the Platte river, soon chilled and died and all stock that was 
not well housed died of cold. We also saw the great swarms of grass- 
hoppers like bees, looking at a distance like a cloud or sand storm, for 
which that country is noted, and when the wind ceased blowing, down 
they came striping every green thing; in three da}'s time not a thing 
was left except prairie grass, which indeed gave poor encouragement as 
to our future living. Pawnee Indians were going u]) and down the 
Piatt ri\'er and called on us quite often. Prairie fires often swept awav 
a settler's whole crop. The fire was a scene never to be forgotten as it 
advanced for miles in one unbroken line. 

Bethuel Borton, Jr., son of Bethuel Borton and Rebecca Cliffton. 
was born in Burlington county, X. J., 9 mo., 1814, and came with his 
brother, Nathan Borton, to Fulton county, Ohio, in 1835, to enter lau'l. 
He located a part of the north-east quarter of section 8, German town- 
ship. The brothers returned to New Jersey as they came, on foot, 
walking several hundred miles of the way. In the fall of 1836, he and 
his family, in company with Joseph Borton ,his brother-in-law, moved 
on to the land and improved the same until 1844, wdien he located and 
moved on to the north-east quarter of section one, townshii) 10, now 
known as Franklin township, Fulton county, Ohio. He resided here 
until 1847, in which year he went to Philadelphia on a visit. On his 
return he had reached Toledo, Ohio, wdiere he was taken sick and died. 
His brother l)rought his remains home, in a wagon, and he lies buried in 
Friends cemetery, Fulton county, Ohio. He; was one wdio helped to 
organize and build the church, and many times was called to deliver a 
message as he believed it was given to him for utterance. He died i r 
mo., 1847, aged ^;^ years and 2 months.

At his home four miles northeast of ^Vest Unitv, on July 12. 1899, 
John Borton, at the age of /(S years, 10 montlis and 8 d;iys, jrissed into 
that land which lies beyond- the valley of the shadow of deatli. 

John Borton, son of Bethuel Borton and Rebecc:i Clifftwu Borton, 
was born in Burlingion county, N. J.. 4-9 mo., 18^0, one of a famih' of 
eleven children. He traces his genealogy to one of three ''rotliers who 
came from England before the Revolutionary .War. 

In the fall of 1836, he, in company with his mother, four l)rothers 
and two sisters, came west and settled in Fulton county. ()h!o. 

b^rom his earliest boyhood he was inspired with a determinntioii 
and hoi)e that laughed at obstacles that would have been unsurmouiita])lc 
barriers to one of the same age and experience. 

He purchased his farm of eighty acres in 184.0 and went t(^ work 
to make a home in the wilderness. 

On two different occasions he walked the entire distance between 
his new home and his old home in" Burlington county. X .J. 

He chopped several acres to pay for the carpenter work on the 
house in which he lived and died, besides felling the might \- forests on 
his own lands. 

Deprived of school privileges, he mastered the three R's so ucl! 

that there were few men whose calculations were so nearlv c(^rrect ;!s 

his. Many could testify to his remark. "1 carry the scdes in jnv lie.'id." 

He possessed a largeness of \ision that enabled him to meet com.ng 

events uilh the spirit of a victor. bVesh from the field of victory he 





(Vi)

laughed at the discouraging- features which ordinarily accompany new 
opportunities. He made them his own door into larger possibilities. 

Noticing the dwarfed condition of the live stock of this section of 
the state, he brought Cotswool sheep from Canada, Moreno sheep from 
Vermont and Pennsylvania, short horned Durham cattle from Kentucky, 
and Poland China hogs from eastern Oiiio. His neighbors were many 
times amazed at the enormous prices he paid, which on one occasion 
reached the large sum of one thousand dollars for two cows. In all 
these ventures he succeeded, and his name became throughout this 
section of the country, and at the fairs for many miles in all directions, 
a synonym for high grade stock. 

Not only was he first in stock raising but in raising of all kinds of* 
fruits and grains. His name associated with stock, fruit or grain was 
a guarantee of its l)eing first-class in quality. 

He succeeded financially to the extent that the land distrrtjuted 
among his children an<l others was ten hundred and tVk^'enty-seven acres, 
while his gifts in money and chattels reached w^ell into thousands. 

He was a living example of what a young man can do, almost with- 
out money or education, if they have the one gift he possessed — a deter- 
mination to keep expenses inside the income. , 

Nor was this his only ambition. Whether acting as fruit grower, 
■farmer, stock-raised or shipper his must not only be as good, but he was 
not satisfied if his were not the best. 

He believed in the excellency of the Repu])]ican parly, the society 
of Friends, honesty, sobriety, loyalty. 

He was distinctively gifted in making home enjoyable. He re- 
tained his fami hands for }-ears in .succession. Almost a score of men, 
who had- toiled in his service, came to shed tears and take leave of 
one for whom they had worked day in and day out without jar or jangle. 

Mr. Borton bouiiht and sold a great manv farms. He dealt oidv in 
good'land. His motto was "Good land is cheap at any price, while poor 
land is dear at any price.'* 

He wa.s a lover of mus.c. while great ])ortions of the scriptuers were 
vividlv planted in his memory. 

He was twice married. 1^'irst in 1839 to Eii/.abetii Ann Tavlor. To 
them were born ten children, eight of whom survive him. His wife 
died in 1887 and that same year he was united in marriage to Rebecca 
Wise, the widow of Solomon Wise, of Fayette. Ohio. To them was born 
the comfort of their old age. Grace, who' is closing her eleventh year. 

It is a remarkable fact that Mr. Borton and two of his brothers died 
in the same year of their age. The age at death was as follows: Nathan 
Borton, 78 vears, 8 months and 19 days; Benjamin Borton, 78 years, 10 
months and 19 days, and John Borton, 78 years, 10 months and 8 days. 

John Borton leaves in direct line to mourn his loss, nine children.

thirty-three grandchildren, and thirty great-grandchildren. 

He was laid to rest in the Friends cemetery. A large concourse 
of people followed him to his grave. He will li\e longest in the hearts 
of those who know him hest.

THE -RISING SLN"' QUILT 
This quilt was pieced In Caroline Borton 
when a little Li:irl while her father (the preacher)

soft pinks; charning greens shading down to buff; 
and quaint browns. 

The stars in the corners are against a back-

colors produces a most pleasing effect, which with 
the harmony (^f the whole color scheme makes the 
quilt a work of ai"t.

GENEALOGY. 161 

In a letter written by Samuel Borton, dated Marlborouo-h, Ohio, 
30-12 mo., 1852, some five years before his decease, he portrays his 
belief as to the Great Ruler of the Universe in the following stanzas. 
That there must be a Great Supreme, 

Who rules both land and sea. 
And the planets in their orbits roll, 
With such velocity. 

He hears the young ravens when they cry, 

He formed the lions' den. 
And to the Pelican in the wilderness, 

He sustenance doth send. 

W^hy should we not such a being love ? 

And attend each secret call, 
For if he protection should withdraw, :/ 

We must into anniliation fall. 
His letter closes with the following: 
jfAnd now I bid you all adieu, 

I have nothing more to say. 
But hope our love and friendship to renew 
Upon some future dav-

VI. The passing" of Ezra Borton, as noted in last week's Reporter, from 
cut cf this life to the great eternitv beyond was the rounding up of a 
life fu'l (f Q-nrd (lecd^, rich in testimonx' for his r\laster. Rew J. P. 



174 BORTON FAMILY 

Stockton, who had known and loved him for thirty years, stated that he 
admired his even temper, his broad minded toleration of all branches 
of the Christian church and his sterling integrity. This would l^e the 
verdict of all who knew liim. 

Blessed beyond most men in the retaining of all his mental faculties 
up to the time of his death so near the century mark, he used his i)Owers 
always on the side of right and justice. The xample of such a life cannot 
be too hi.ghlv commended to the voung and risino- o-eneration. 

The funeral services were held from the M. E. church or. Thurs- 
day at lo o'clock, conducted by Rev. J. L. Hill, assisted bv Rr^-. J .P. 
Stockton, and the remains laid to rest in the Friends cemc*^f"'y in 
Franklin. 

The following account of his life is taken from the Rei)oru of 
March 7, 1906, which was written after various talks with him and had 
his a]3pro\al. 

Ezra Borton, the son of Samuel and Mercy (Owen) Borton. was 
born March 3, iSii. near the village of Lexington, two miles north of 
wdiat is now the city of Alliance, Stark Count v, Ohio. His father had 
emigrated from New Jersey the fall before his birth. 

The eyes of young Ezra first looked out upon the wilderness. He 
was the youngest of eight children — three daughters and five sons. With 
one exception theirs was a family of Bible names in the order of their 
birth, Rhoda, Ruth, Deborah, Samuel, Isaiah, Asa, Ira and Ezra. All 
the rest have long since passed aw^ay. With the exce])tlon of Samuel, 
who died at 55 years of age, all the sons li\'ed to a good old age. 

The sons all learned to farm and in connection became expert l)rick- 
makers in their father's brick yard. 

In sneaking of his earlv remembrances, Mr. Borton said that among 
tlie first things was that of his mother leading him to the log b'riends 
churcli in the village of Lexington, which was among the first cluu'clies 
of that denomination in Ohio. 

The memory of his mother was very dear to him. Her dec]) piety, 
her e\'en temper and good teaching have gone a h)ng ways towards 
making him the faithful man he has always been. 

His education was received at the old log school house common to 
those days. They were built by the settlers and the teacher hired bv 
subscription — a se'ect school. In the sunyner a school was held for 
the smaller children, for as the boys and girls got to the age when they 
were helpful at home they had to take their i)art in making a living. 

Thus his childhood passed going to school winters and working on 
the farm and in the brick yard summers. 

At the age of 20 he joined the Hixite or liberal branch of the 
Friends' church. 1\j that church he has proved faithful all these \-e:irs, 
striving to do his duty to God and man. 



GENEALOGY. 175 

His father and mother were raised Friends, but the former did not 
join the church till after the division occurred, when he joined the Hixite 
branch. This was about the time his son joined. 

March, 1832. when 21 years of ag'e, he was united in marria»'e to 
Jane Heacock. To this union were born three daug'hters : Emaline, 
now Mrs. Benj. Gaskill, of Nebraska; Angeline, Mrs. Webster Richards, 
of Nebraska; Jane. Mrs. Joshua Pollockj a widow, who lives in Missouri. 

His wife died in February, 1837, soon after the l)irth of her young- 
est daughter, with scarlet fever contracted from the doctor who at- 
tended her. 

One year after her death he was married to Ann Brown, of Stark 
county. It was shortly after this he moved to Portage county near Ran- 
dolph, where they lived for about 16 years. 

In 1854 they moved to Fulton county, where he purchased 160 acres 
of land nearlv all heavily timbered. This he went to work to clear u]> 
and soon had a comforable home. 

To this union were born four daughters and one son: — the t^\in.->, 
Almira and Alvira, who live at Alvordton; Sabina, deceased; Lucina, 
Mrs. Levi Haas, of Ithaca, ]\Iich.; Joseph, his only son, who lives in 
Morcnci, Mich. 

His second wife died in Septendjer. 1861, and he remained a widower 
until March, 1863, when he was married to Mrs. Sarah Barber Heacock, 
of Mahoning;- count v. who had four children to whom he became a true 
fatlier, and all of whom came to lo\'e him as their own father. 

Mrs. Borton, liking a country l)ctter improved than the part of Ful- 
ton count\' they lived in, the family moved back to her farm of 20 acres 
in ?^Iahoning county in 1855, \vhere they resided for eight years. 

It was at that time, 1873. that West Unity had taken on new life 
bv the promised Mansfield, Coldwater and Lake Michigan railroad 

Mr. Borton having exchanged his 160 for the farm now occupied 
bv his grandson, Wendell Borton, and West Unity being near the farn; 
and on the boom, they moved there, and Mr. Borton's was annong the 
first houses built during that time. 

AX'hile livino- in Fulton countv, Alice, now Mrs. W. T. Orton, the 
only child l)y this union, was born. 

For more than 30 years, Mr. and ]\Irs. Borton made this their home. 
Simple, uneventful life, but always on the right side — respected and 
beloved by all. 

He was keenly alive to all that was going on in the world, and, 
with an intellect unclouded by age, a delightful companion. He attri- 
buted his long life to simple living, and for years past, which had not 
been vears cf active work on account of his being crippled by rheuma- 
tism, his diet was largely bread and milk. He was an inveterate enemy 
of a'cohol drinks and tobacco. Perfect control of one's temper and 



17G BORTON FAMILY 

appetite, temperance in all things, he believed to be the key to long- 
evity. 

For 30 years he fought sla\-ery — being one of the original Garrison 
Abolitionists, and for more than 75 years had been a teetotaler. 

The victories that impressed him most during his long life were 
along moral and religious lines, rather than inventi\-e — the abolition of 
slavery and the religious toleration and fellowship that is taking the 
place of the old sectarianism.

Mv old and esteemed friend : — 

Your letter of the 30-1 mo., 1907, after a run to Kalkaska, 'I'raxerse 
Citv, and Rapid City, was this morning dropped into our mail box. 

I think my grandmother's name was Tabitha Rodman, when a bf)y 
I had my head well filled witli family traditions by my mother iiid 
grandmother. For a year or more 1 made m)- home witli L^ncle Darling 



GENEALOGY. 181 

Borton, in Wood county, Ohio, and they named their first l)aby Tabitha, 
after her grandmother. 

Leonidas Hubbard, Jr., after graduating, I think, reported for a 
'.ii'iie for the Detroit Evening X^ews, then he struck out for Xew York 
and (hd wdiatexer came to hand until he got a l)erth in the Outing 
iVJagazine. Thi.s was his delight. He was first sent through the South- 
ern states, with camera and pen, to obtain copy for the magazine. He 
suijplied lots of graphic pen pictures and photos of the Moonshiners and 
their dogs. Again he was sent, for the same paper, into the wild- of 
C.'an.ula, with Indian trappers and dog sleds. For a year or more he had 
v'.ork on the editorial staff of the paper. 

The maiden name of his wife was Mina Benson, a Canadian girl of 
sb.ghl figure but as elastic and tenacious as steel. She could tramp 
tlirough the woods, with "Lon," from morning until night, carry a ritfe, 
and shoot game or catch trout with the best of them. Since his death 
.^he has followed his trail through Labrador, saw the place wdiere he 
died, and is now lecturing to crowded houses about the trip. 

I will note a few incidents of my father's life and may be of mv own. 
]\Iore than one hundred years ago, my grandfather, Ephraim Beech 
Hubbard and family, migrated from the state of Xew York to the 
"W^estern Reserve," and stopped in what became Deerfield township. 
Portage county, Ohio. Besides the parents, there were three boys and 
one girl, Sophia. Of the boys, Alexander, the oldest, had been ado])ted 
by Captain Kidd, of sea-faring fame, (not the pirate hung at the vard 
arm). The connection with Kidd did not bring him a "bag of gold," but 
led him to return to his old haunts, where he received a fairly good 
education. Among other acquirements, he became a good practical 
surveyor, just what was needed in a country that was filling u]) with 
settlers, and where the go\-ernment had only established townshi]) lines. 

This gave my father a monopoly of the surveying business for 
many miles around. The last time I saw Uncle Daniel Borton, as we 
were looking over his well improved farm, he said, "Your father came 
from Deerfield. 12 miles, and surveyed this land for me, and I went to 
Deerfield and mauled rails to pay him for it." My father was a good 
woodsman, a great deer and bear killer. An old German that I was 
working for, said to me, "Hubbard, I tells you what your daddy did, he 
gilled dwenty-five durkeys in one day." When Daniel Direr had his 
eyes shot out, in Deerfield, one night by Lidians, Alexander Hubbard 
was one of the hunters who followed and captured them. 

The Bortons were hunters, too, in the early days of uncivilization 
of the Western Reserve. I doubt not that the desire to prospect La1)ra- 
dor, rather than to become altogether absorbed in literature and city- 
life, was planted in Lon's make-up by his ancestors. 

As for nn'self. 1 think I have never committed anv acts worth 
recording in a book. I have always had a hankering for the wilds of 



182 BOR'iOx ^^\MiL^ 

nature, with Darling H. Borton for a comrade, we encamj^ed on the St. 
Jo river for a week, in 1842, where the Territorial road crosses it. The 
wolves howled around our camp every night, and it was music to our 
ears. 

I moved into Wright township, Hillsdale county, Michigan, in the 
year of 185 1. In 1852, I found a beech log where a mother wolf had 
raised her pups. I set a couple of traps and caught five of them. They 
were the last ever caught in Wright township, and I received a bounty 
of seventy-five dollars. In the year 1856, I went to California; I killed 
hundreds of deer there and sold the meat to the miners. One day, I 
shot a l)ig bear, knocking it down, but it got away from me. Another 
day, I killed three California lions — it took only three shots to do it. I 
have tread on and over rattlers, but was never bitten. This is enough 
of this stuiT. 

I am keeping over one hundred swarms of bees, and guess it will 
pay. I never saw a place where bees would collect as much nectar 
in a day.

Leonidas Hubbard, Jr., son of Leonidas Hubbard and Ella Van-

and Alexander Hubbard. Eliza was the daughter of Daniel Borton, the 
son of Samuel Borton and Rhoda Packer. Samuel was the son of Oba- 
diah Borton and Susannah Butcher. He was the son of John Borton, Jr., 
the oldest son of John Borton and Ann, his wife, who came from the 
Parish of Aynho, Northamptonshire, England, in 1682. 

Leonidas Hubbard, Jr., was for some time engaged as a reported on 
the "Outing Magazine." a sporting paper, after which he engaged to 
explore the interior of Labrador, a feat which he would have accom- 
plished had he not been diverted from "the trail," and perished from 
hunger. The death of Leonidas Hubbard, Jr., occurred in 1903. Later 
the work was taken up by Mrs. Hubbard, his widow, and we think fully 
accomplished. Mr. Dillon W^allace, a New York attorney who was in 
the former exploring party with Hubbard, also, later successfully ex- 
plored that country.

Eliza Borton married Alexander Hubbard and lived in Ohio. He 
died and later, in 1857, she with her children moved into Wrig-ht town- 
ship, Hillsdale county, ^Michigan, where she resided until her death, 
which occurred from a paralytic stroke, on the 23-10 mo., 1884. 

Alexander K. Hubbard, who married Eliza Borton, was born in 
Schoharie county, N. Y., 7-5 mo., 1787. and was the son of Ephraim 
Hubbard, who removed to what is known as the 'A\'estern Reserve." 
Ohio, and was an early settler in Deerfield township. Portage county, 
Ohio. He purchased a tract of tim1)er land and settled u]jon it while deer 
and wild turkeys, with smaller game, were yet to be found in abundance, 
and the howling of the wolves broke the stillness of the night. He was 
occupied in clearing his land and improving his farm, upon which he 
resided until his decease. 

Alexander K. Hul)bard was about fifteen years of age when his 
parents removed to Ohio. He remained there only a short time, how- 
ever, and then, returning to New York state, lived with Captain Ividd. 
and attended school. He paid particular attention to the study of sur- 
veying and after becoming skillful in that branch of science, he returned 
to Ohio and secured employment as a surveyor of land. He surveyed a 
great part of that section of country lying around Deerfield, but after 
his father's death he bought the interest of the other heirs, and took up 
his residence on the homestead. He was industrious and energetic and 
attended closely to his own business, in which he exercised good judgv 
ment. His usual recreation was found in the hunt and many a wild

animal fell before his unerring aim. He filled many offices of trust in the 
township and county, discharging- his duties with that fearlessness and

legislature and was defeated by only one vote. At the time of his de- 
cease he held the office of justice of the peace.

Rare Family Picture. Four Generations Now Living on James W, 

Matlack's Wea Farm. 
Review of Lives and Ancestry, 

One could travel far and not find many houses wherein exists a 
family such as exists in a Tippecanoe county household. On a beautiful 
Wea farm, three miles south of the city, four women reside wdio repre- 
sent four generations of a single family, the youngest member of which 
unique quartette is twenty-four years old and the eldest is nearing her 
ninety-second year. The "Call" takes pride in today presenting a group 
picture of these women. Their lives encompass the major portion of 
the country's historv, for that reason being doubly interesting. Their 
home is the James AV. Matlack farm. These four women are aged 
respectively: Mrs. Deborah Fox, 91; Mrs. James W. Matlack, 68; Mrs. 
Deborah Munn, 44; Miss Belle Munn, 24. 

By far the most interesting member of this unusual family group, 
is the great-grandmother. She is in the fullest possession of all her 
faculties and is very good natured. She is an entertaining talker and 
loves to tell of her Quaker ancestry, of her girlhood days spent on her 
native New Jersey heath and of her early experiences in the land of her 
adoption, Indiana, the dearest state of them all to her. She fell on 
the ice about a year ago and since .has been unable to w^alk. 

]\Irs. Fox was born June 15, 181 1, in New Jersey, in what is now 
Camden county. The first member of the family to come to the United 
States was her grandfather, Samuel Borton, who emigrated from Eng- 
land, landing in New York and going to New Jersey, where he settled 
in Eavesham township. The grandmother of Mrs. Fox picked liuckle- 
berries where Market street, Philadelphia, now runs. Samuel Borton 
was a speaker in the Primitive Society of Friends, being a prominent 
worker in that faith. One of ]Mrs. Fox's most cherished possessions is 
the old book of Quaker articles of faith, possessed by her grandfather. 

This book is bound in leather and is entitled "A Treatise Concerning 
Christian Discipline." It was printed in the year 1752 and as it bears 
no publisher's name was probably printed secretly as the Quakers were 
then among the persecuted of the earth. Its title page gives the in- 
formation that it was "Compiled with the Advice of a National Meeting 
of the People Called Quakers in the Year 1746, Held in Dublin," by 
John Rutty, M .D. It is divided into seven chapters, wdiich comprise all 
the early beliefs of this peculiar sect. In the preface the author sets 
forth his object as two-fold, to do justice to a people represented as en- 
thusiasts and madmen and to gain converts by their teachings. He says 



GENEALOGY. 203 

also that his faith is anomalous to the Church of England in as far as 
wishing for a restoration of the godly discipline of the primitive church. 
The book 1)ears all the characteristics of the printing facilities of that 
early day. It bears on the tly leaf this signature. ''Samuel Borton, His 
Book," 1780. Mrs. Fox has been offered a large sum of money for this 
rare old volume, but has steadfastly refused to part with it. 

Mrs. Fox tells an interesting anecdote of this vigorous ancestor 
of hers. Being a member of the Society of Friends when the war of 
the Revolution broke out, he did not participate directly in the struggle 
of the colonies. It so happened one day he was a passenger on a boat 
which was attacked by a party of Britishers. In the hostilities which 
followed, the redcoats were successful in getting to the side of the 
American Ijoat. A rope was dangling enticingly over the edge of the 
-deck and up this rope the British soldiers started hand over hand. Sam- 
uel Borton, leaning over the edge of the deck, whipped out his knife, 
shouting as he cut the rope in twain, "Take the rope if thee desire it, 
but I guess we still need the boat." That was a typical Quaker method 
of avoiding the shedding of blood and yet coming off triumphant. It 
was the total extent of his participation in that eventful war. 

Among her other relics which have come down to her as heirloomSi 
are two pewter platters, rare old daguerreotypes, shadow ])ictures, 
ancient china and pottery, and a handsomely engraved sih'er cream 
pitcher. The pewter platters are twenty-four and twenty inches in dia- 
meter respectively. Mrs. Fox says they are identical with those which 
were melted down into bullets by the colonists. They are extremely 
plain, having no markings other than those incidental to long usage. 
They were not to eat from Imt were used to contain meats and table 
dishes. The collection of daguerreotypes and shadow pictures is quite 
large and embodies valuable portraits of many of her ancestors. This 
collection is treasured l)y her for the old associations it keeps fresh in 
her mind and which this dear old lady never tires of telling about. The 
cream pitcher is hand engraved and is decidedly handsome from an ar- 
tistic point of view as well as valuable intrinsically. The china and 
pottery are largely of the eighteenth century and comprises many beau- 
tiful pieces. There are plates, saucers, dessert dishes, cups and bowls. 
Besides these valuable possessions there is the baby rocker in which 
Mr. Fox herself used as a child and which has perfromed the same duty 
for the other three members of the cjuartette. It is of wood and was 
carved by hand. It has been laid away to await the coming of succeed- 
ing generations. 

Mrs. Fox as Miss Deborah Borton, was wooed and won by Samuel 
C. Fox, in her native New Jersey in 1831. They continued to reside in 
that state until the year 1856, when they removed to Indiana. Mr. Fox 
was a lifelong Democrat and voted the ticket until the famous campaign 
of i860. He cast his vote that year for the great emancipator. It was 



204 BORTON FAMILY 

his last vote, for the clay that Lincoln was inaug-urated, ]\Iarch 4. 1861, 
his final summons came. His last words were, "Thank God I didn't vote 
for Douglass !" 

Mr. and Mrs. Fox were the parents of two children, both of whom 
are living. They are Mrs. James Matlack, born as Mrs. Fox quaintly 
says, "in first grass," in 1833, and Thom Fox, born in "tater diggin' " 
1836. With the former, Mrs. Fox now resides, while the latter is a 
prosperous merchant in Knoxville, Tenn. Mr. Fox was the first person 
buried in the Sickler cemetery, where now sleep many respected old 
pioneers of the county. There are six grandchildren and five great- 
grandchildren of this estimable old couple living. Three of the former 
reside in Tennessee and three in this county. Of the latter three live 
in Tennessee and two in old Tippecanoe. As pround as Mrs. Fox is of 
her ancestry and their honorable careers, she feels a deeper interest in 
those who have come after her. 

The next oldest of this quartette is Mrs. James Matlack. whose 
birth date was noted above. She was married March 17, 185 1, in New 
Jersey, her husband being of English descent and a native of that state. 
Mr. Matlack is well and favorably known throughout the countv. They 
are the parents of Deborah Munn, the next oldest, who was born in. 
1868 in Indiana. Miss Belle Munn, the youngest of the four women,, 
was borji December 22, 1878, and is still unmarried. She also is a native 
of Indiana. 

This is in brief, a history of the representatives of the four gener- 
ations. They enjoy a large acquaintance in Tippecanoe coimty and La- 
Fayette and are w'idely esteemed and respected. 

VI. Esaias Hunt, son of Ralph Hunt and Mary Borton, married ]\Iary 
Mason, daughter of Eleanor Borton and Aljraham ]\Iason. See Mason 
family, as to their descendants. 

VI. Deborah Hnut, daughter of Ralph Hunt and Mary Borton, married

Mary Borton, b. 9-3 mo., 1788, was the daughter of Samuel Borton 
and Rhoda Packer. Samuel Borton was the son of Obadiah Borton and 
Susannah Butcher. Obadiah was the son of John Borton, Jr., and first 
wife. John Borton, Jr., was the oldest son of John Borton and Ann, 
the progenitors of the Borton family. 

Deborah Hunt's home is at LaFayette, Indiana, and she is the only 
one living of her family, at the present time, tliis 1907, being 97 years 
of age.

Borton, mother of Jesse Packer Borton lived to be nearly one hundred 
years old, and became blind before her death. 

The Mason Fam/ly, by Eleanor Lex/ngton. 

The first who assumed the name Mason doubtless derived it from 
his occupation. It is supposed that the word comes from the old 
Latin, macio, or it may be a modification of marcio, from marcus, a ham- 
mer. Maceria, the Latin word, meaning a stone wall, has for its root 
mac. In Italian we find the macigno means a stone lap-mill. 

Le Mason, le Masson, le Masun are old forms of the name. In- 
French it is Macon. 

Mason is a favorite name in this country for counties, that is, many 
in eastern and western states are thus named. A township in North- 
umberland, England, is called Mason. Shall we say, without more ado, 
that it was tlic cradle of the Masons? Perhaps it was. One of the 
pleasures of genealogical research is that much must be left to tlie 
imagination. 



208 MASON FAMILY 

One of the first of the name, of whom records are preserved, is 
Charles Mason, born 1616. He was a minister and a writer. Some of 
his letters are preserved in the British Mnseum. There are also AISS. 
of his in the Bodician Library. Archdeacon Francis Mason was born 
in Norfolk, of poor parents. He rose to power, throug-h his own efforts, 
^'after making- a hard shift to rub on," as he expresses it. 

Martin Mason, son of John Mason, "gent." of Lincoln, was a Friend, 
who was continually being imprisoned for his opinions. He was con- 
cerned in the controversy about wearing the hat during prayer. He took 
a broad-minded y\e\v of this question, and said: "What matter whether 
the hat be on or off, so long as the heart be right?" He wrote an ad- 
dress to Charles H, which was considered so forciI)le and able a docu- 
ment that it was printed broadside. 

John Monch Mason was a Shakespearean commentator, and Sir 
Joseph Mason won lasting fame by not dying rich. He was one of the 
rich men of his day, and worth half a million. He founfled the Scientific 
College at Birmingham. 

The poet of the family, and regarded as one of the most eminent of 
his day, was W^illiam, of Yorkshire, born in 1725. A medallion of him 
may be seen in Westminster Abbey. He is now remembered as the 
biographer of the poet Gray. 

George, the artist, was the grandson of the potter, who invented 
the celebrated ware called Mason's ironstone china. Its manufacturer 
and iiiventor in the new world was Melancthon ^^"ells Mason, who de- 
signed parts of the first railroad engine. He is best known as the 
inventor of the locomotive headlight. 

The name of one of the family is perpetuated in "Mason and Dixon's 
Line." It was Charles Mason, associated with Jeremiah Dixon, both 
English astronomers, who in 1763-67 surveyed the line ever since known 
by their names. Another surveyor was Porter Mason, of Connecticut. 
During the early part of the nineteenth century he was a member of 
the commission for defining the boundary between ]\Iaine and Canada. 

In colonial history, the Masons play an important part. One state 
— New Hampshire — was founded by John Mason. Before the May- 
flower load arrived, John was exploring the New England coast. This 
was in 161 7, wlien he was governor of Newfoundland, h^ive years later 
he ol)taine(l a grant of land on the Merrimac river, and the following 
year sent over a shipload of settlers, who founded Dover and Ports- 
mouth. The name Hampshire was given to tlic state from Hampshire, 
England, John's birthplace. The rights in tlie state of the Mason 
heirs were sold out; in 1691 Governor Samuel Allen accjuired some of 
the property, and in 1746 a part was disposed of for £1,500 to twelve 
men of Portsmouth, known as the Masonian proprietors. Efforts to 
assert rights to part or all of New Hampsliire, l)y Mason's descendants, 
proved a source of litigation for o\'er a ct-ntur}-. 



GENEALOGY. 209 

Another pilgrim ancestor was Robert, who was one of Winthrop's 
company that settled in Roxbury, 1630. His son Thomas, one of the 
founders of Medfield, Mass., was a subscriber to the buildino- fund of 
Harvard college. Thomas's wife was Mary Partridge, descendant of 
Richard De Pertriche. 

Major John, born in England in 1600, after serving in the Nether- 
lands under Fairfax, came over to take a hand in subduing the Indians. 
He made short work of the Pequots. By his prompt measures a hand- 
ful of men within a few weeks annihilated the powerful trible and se- 
cured a general peace that lasted unbroken forty years. He then sat 
down, pen in hand, and wrote a history of the Pequot war. He was one 
of the founders of Windsor, Conn., and for thirty years held successively 
every office in the gift o fthe town. Truly a right worthy and noble 
ancestor! His son. Captain John, inherited the splendid traits of his 
illustrious father. Tracing the line from "Pequot John," we come to 
Daniel of Lebanon, Conn., and his wife, Dorothy Hobart. 

Here we must pause a moment, for she was the daughter, several 
times removed, as might be said, of a hundred earls, not to mention a 
few kmgs. Charlemagne and Alfred the Great being of the number. 
Dorothy, the Puritan maid, born in New England, was great-grand- 
mother of Olix'er S. John, Baron of Beauchamp, third cousin of Queen 
Elizaiieth, who made him Lord St. John of Bletshoe when she came to 
the tiirone. The grantlmother of Henry VH. Margaret Beauchamp, 
comes into the story, and, as the reader recalls, was a descendant of 
Gundred, fourth daughter of A\^illiam the Conqueror. Other little 
branches of this illustrious genealogical tree were Margaret of Scotland 
Edgar Atheling, Le^^•is the Fair. Charles the Bald and Hildegard of 
Swabia. Daniel left one son. Joseph. 

It was of another Jeremiah Mason, lawyer, that Daniel Webster 
said he was great through sound sense and sound judgment. His ( A\>b- 
ster's ) own professional al)ility, he declared, was due to daih- associa- 
tion with him for nine years. 

riie founder of the Virginia branch of the famil)' was George Mason, 
Englisli royalist, who took refuge here in 1652. He was j^rominent in 
colonial wars. It was George Mason, l)orn in 1726, who was a menil)er 
of the Conmiittee of Safety, in 1775. In the following year he prepared 
the declaration of rights and the constitution of Virginia. He was a 
memljer of the con\'ention that framed the Constitution of the Llnited 
States, \\hicli he refused to sign, and with Patrick Henr}', led the op])osi- 
tion to its ratification, partly on account of what he considered its 
monarchical features. A distinguished member of this branch of th.e 
family was John Young Mason, member of the cabinet during Tvler's 
and Polk's terms, and afterward minister to France. To know anvthing 
about the history of Virginia is to know of the "Masons of Gunstown," 
and of their military and adventurous spirit. The Masons intermarried 



210 MASON FAMILY 

with the other well known and illnstrious southern families — the Fitx- 
hughs and Lees. 

The Revolutionary records as well as colonial ones, reveal the 
names of Masons, and judging from the number of officers, they were 
always foremost in action. Stevens Thomson Mason enteren the army 
as colonel : he was a general at its close. Abner, of Medfield, was in 
the ranks; so was Phineas, who was present at the execution of Andre. 
The late war with Great Britain also had its representatives from the 
family — Brigadier General Thomas Mason among the number. 

The arms reproduced is argent, a bend wavy, azure between two 
spur rowels in chief, and a fieur-de-lis in base gules. Crest, a tower 
proper, masoned sable. Motto: Demeure Far La Verite — Keep fast 
b}' the truth. 

Regarding the symbolism : the l)end. representing the scarf, or 
shield suspender of a knight or military commander, signifies protection 
and defense. It is a ])earing of high honor. Shakespeare's arms sliow 
the i^end, with the addition of a lance. Alertness is betokened l)v the 
spur rowels, and purity or wdiiteness of soul by the flein"-de-lis ; like 
all flowers, it also signifies hope and joy. The tower, emblem of soliditv 
and e'randeiu', was usuallv p-ranted to him who had faithfullv held one 
for his king. As to the colors, argent means sincerity; azure, lovalty 
and truth; gules, military fortitude and magnanimity; sable, constancv. 

I am informed by Miss Kate Mason Rowland, of AA'ashington, D. 
C., a descendant of Colonel George Mason and also his l)iog"rai)her, that 
the arms he bore were not the same as those representetl b\' the cut. 
while Binkes' General Armory gi\-es arms for some eighteen families 
by tlie name of Mason. Arms were no doubt worn In' the ancestors 
of the quiker Masons, l)ut l)y these people tliemseh'es no attention was 
paid to chi\-alr}'. 

To tlie summary gi\-en 1)}' Miss Fleanor Lexington of the Mason 
family at large ; we might add those of Caroline Atherton ]\Iason Briggs, 
an American \erse writer, born in Marblehead, Massachusetts, ly-j 
mo., 1823. She wrote "Do They Miss Me at Home?" She died in i8qo. 

Sir Josiah Mason, an English philanthropist, born in Kidderminster, 
England, 2y2 mo., 1795. began life by selling cakes on the street. He 
began to make pens in 1829 and his business increased till he became the 
largest penmaker in the world. He died in Erdington, England, 16-6

JTc was a champion of the "h^st cause," which he beheved to be rig-ht,

brightly as his illustrious predecessor. 

William Ernest Mason, also an American legislator; born in Frank-

lie was an ardent advocate of Cuban Independence. 

■ It will be noticed in tlie biographies given of the Mason family at 
large, that it has been composed of three 1)ranches distinguished l^y 
leaders, great in military affairs, lawyer statesmen, and champions of 
religion. To the latter class belongs the branch of the family whose 
genealogy is more minutely traced out in these pages. 

THE MASON FAMILY IN EUROPE. 

Evsham, New Jersey, Branch. 

The earlv history of the Mason family is to a great extent wrapped 
in ol'Scuritw and i)articularh' that branch with which this history has 
to do. The family no doul)t lived in England from a very early day, 
and we believe it to have l)een of Anglo-Saxon origin. Among the 
first con\-erts to the Quaker faith was one, ]\Iartin. from whom the 
Evesham branch of the ]\Iason family is belie\'ed to have descended. 

The following is copied from the Dictionary of English National 
Biography: "Martin Mason, (from 1650 to 1676), Quaker, was the son 
of John Mason, 'Gent." of St. Swithians, Lincoln, whose will leaving his 
son ]\Iartin liis seal ring, \vas proved 1675. Mason recei\-ed an ex- 
cellent education, was well versed in Latin, and became a co])ious writer 
chiefly of controxersial tracts. He joined the Quakers early ,an(l be- 
tween 1650 and 1671 was continuall}- imprisoned for his oi)inions. Most 
of his u-ritings are dated from Lincoln Castle. He was concerned as to 
the schism of John Parrot about wearing the hat during prayer, dlie 
Vision of fohn Parrot, 1682, contains on the back of the title page some 
memoriam \-erses by Mason, date zy , 10 mo., 1676. He seems to ha\-e 
taken a broad-minded \-iew of the controversy, and wrote. "AMiat mat- 
ter whether hat be on or otT, so long as heart be right!" ( MSS. letters. > 
In II mo., 1660, ]\Iason wrote from Lincoln Castle an address to Charles, 
King of England, and an address to both houses of parliament. They 
are clear and forcible addresses, setting forth that all com])ulsion in re- 
ligion should l:e removed. They were })rinte(l in broadside. Martin 
IMason was one of the four hundred l!l)erated by the King's Patent 13, 
9 mo., 1672. The al)sence of any record probably implies that he left 
the S(:c'et\'. A \-olume of manuscripts left in the possession of a descend-

ant, contained verses and letters addressed to judges and deputy lieu- 
tenants of the county of Lincoln, besides correspondence with Albertus 
Ottis Faben, a German doctor, who cured him of a violent inward 
complaint. See Faberis Deauro Potable Medicale, (1677, P. 6.) Mason 
had a daughter, Abigail, buried among the Quakers at Lincoln, 4, 4 
mo., 1658, and a son Martin, Jr., married at St. Peters at Arches, Lin- 
coln 29, 7 mo., 1679, to Frances Ross, widow of Lincoln. 

We give the following data taken from Friends' Records, London, 
England, and various histories pertaining to the people known as 
Quakers. 

The following are the early Mason families of the parishes of Moul- 
ton, Crayland and Lincoln, monthly meetings of Spalding, Broughton 
and Wainfleet, County of Lincoln. 

Thomas, b. ; m. Ann , 

m. Bridgett Curtiss, 26-4 mo., 1664. 

Lidda, b. ; m. Steven Carnall, 4-7 mo., 1670. 

Simon, b. ; m. Susannah 

Martin, b. ; m 

Ann Mason, first wife of Thomas, died at Moulton, 14-4 mo., 1663, 
and was buried at Spalding. Her body was stolen away at night, and 
carried to Combect. Thomas Mason died at Moulton, and w^as buried 
at Spalding, 1667. Susannah Mason, wife of Simon, died 18-2 mo., 1687, 
and was burled at Crayland. Simon Mason died at Crayland i-i mo., 
1785, and was buried at Spalding. 

Bridgett Mason, the second wife of Thomas, after hi.s decease, 
married Thomas Head of Spaulding, Lincolnshire, (Husl^andman ), at 
the house of Thomas Summers, 11-8 mo., 1674. 

The children of Simon Mason and Susannah were : 

Mary, b. 2-10 mo., 1675; (-^'^^^^^ ^t Crayland, 6-5 mo., 1683. 

Simon, Jr., 1). ii-io mo., 1677; m. j\Lary Sharp. 

AA^illiam, b. 11-8 mo., 1682. 

Mary, b. 17-12 mo., 1686, (the second). 

Simon Mason, Jr., son of Simon Mason and Susannah, married 
Mary Sharp at the house of Thomas Summers, 11-7 mo., 1690. She de- 
ceased, and 13-5 mo., 171 5, he married Martha Stephenson, daughter of 
Thomas of Spalding. Martin Mason resided in the i)arish of Lincoln, 
and was a member of the monthly meeting of Broughton and ( i;iinsl)oro, 
whom he married, is not known, and the names of his children as far as 
can be ascertained were : 

John, b. ; m. 

Abigail, b. ; d. 4-2 mo., 1658. 

Martin, Jr., b. ; m. 29-7 mo., 1679, Francis Ross, (widow). 

There may have been other children. John ]\lason resided at or 
near the parish of Aynho, Northamptonsliire, and immigrated to Tur- 
lington county, Xew Jersey, between 1678 antl 1^)83, (). S. We l)elieve 



GENEALOGY. 213 

that Martin ]\lason instead of leaving the Society of Friends, as sug- 
gested in the quotation above, left England with other Friends, to make 
a home in America, as no star has been placed opposite his name, as 
was the custom of Friends wdiere members had repudiated the 
faith. He probably died on shipboard or very shortly after landing. No 
permanent record could well be kept, as Friends' records were not yet 
established in Burlington monthlv meeting of ''New Caesaria." later 
New Jersev. As to the wives of John and Martin Mason, nothing is 
known. 

In 27-12 mo., 1660, John Mason, while a lad, was taken by a con- 
stable, while in a Friend's house at Polebrook; and was sent to North- 
ampton Goal, for his religious belief. Besse's SuiTering of Friends, \'ol. 

I- page 551- 

From Samuel Smith's History of the Colony of New Casearia or 

New Jersey, page 276. we quote the following: 

In 1703, "Lord Cornbury arrived in New Jersey in the month called 
August, 1703, having published his commission at Amboy and Burling- 
ton. He returned to his government in New York, but soon came back, 
and convened the General Assembly to meet him at Pearth, Amboy. the 
loth of November *******"' 

The first representatives for the western division of New Jersey 
were Thomas Lambert, A\'illiam Biddle. William Stevenson, Restore 
Lippincott, John Kay. John Hugg, Jr., Joseph Cooper, William Hall, 
John Mason, John Smith. 

In 1704. (page 283) the members of this asseml^ly were Restore 
Lippincott, John Hugg, John Kay, John Smith, AN'illiam Hall, John 
]\Iason, Thomas Bryan, Robert Wheeler, Peter Fretwell, Thomas Lam- 
bert, Thomas Gardiner. Joshua A\'right. 

How varied the vicissitudes and conditions of life. We find John 
]\Iason in his native and home land incarcerated in the goal of North- 
ampton for his Christian loyalty, while in America, the land of his 
adoption, we find him sitting in the presence of an English lord helping 
to frame and enact laws to govern the Commonwealth of the West 
Division of New Jersey. "Truly, he that humbleth himself shall be 
exalted." 

As to John Mason, Gent., of St. Swithians. Lincoln, England, we 
have no knowledge except the statement quoted above. A\> infer, how- 
ever, for the following reasons, that he was rector of the above named 
parish of the established church of England. The title of gentleman in 
England belongs to what is known as the "upper middle class" of English 
nobility, and any person or family having a coat of arms, and not a yeo- 
man, was entitled to use this appelation. Most persons who made use 
of this title were supposed to be owners of real estate, and leasors 
of the same ; but tradesmen and the clergy were included. Martin 
Mason, son of John, joined the Society of Friends early, and was im- 



214 MASON FAMILY 

prisoned from time to time, dating- from 1650 to 1671. Xow, the will 
of his father, John Mason, was proved, or probated, in 1673, and we 
finrl that he was not disinherited, ])ut came into possession of the seal 
ring of his father, giving him all of the anthority which his father fuhn 
possessed. Such forbearance manifested towards his son Martin for 
twenty years would not have been tolerated by any one outside of 
the clergy. Further, it may be argued that his letters and manuscrii)t 
writing were dated from Lincoln Castle; such is no doubt the case, Ijut 
this does not prove that his faher John w^as in any particular way in- 
terested or concerned in said castle, for it was a common practice to 
incarcerate persons who belonged to the gentry of England in castles, 
and not in the coimtry goals with the average criminal class of ]:)ersons; 
and especially woidd this be the case with the son of a rector, a i^erson 
of good standing in the established church of the country, and whose 
crime, (so-called) was simply for conscience sake. 

I. A\"e learn from court records, at Trenton and Mount Holly, X. J., 
that John Mason, the progenitor of the Evesham ])ranch of the Mason 
family, came to Burlington county, N. J., in a \-ery early day, possibly 
with the Bortons, Moores, Fugles, Prickitts, Sharps and other families 
and possibly he may have immigrated prior to this time. He was, no 
doubt, settled in America as early as 1677, as a creek which empties into 
the Rancocas has been known l)y the name of Alason's Creek since Bur- 
lington county was first settled. He lea\'es a will dated 20-3 mo., 1706, 
and also in a deed dated 5-4 mo., 1786, mention is made of his ])urcnas- 
ing one hundred acres of land, deed dated 22-t, mo., 1689, of Thomas 
Olive, Colonial Governor of N. J. Fie was, no doubt, a mend)er and 
one who helped to organize the monthly meeting of Orthod(^x h'riends 
of Haddonfield, X\ J., and were it not for the fact that a part of rhese 
church records have been lost, or destroyed, we should be enabled to 
give a much f idler record as to the family's early history. He died at 
the home of his eldest son, James, in the year 1728. The name of his 
^^•ib is not positively kno\\n. Flis children were; — 

James Mason, b. ; m. 3-1 mo., 1718, Lidy Busb\v.

First Friends Church of Burlington. New Jersey, l^uilt in 1685. and 
in use until 1787. This was among the first Friends' churches built, if 
not the first. AVe wonder why it was that a plain people should build 
a church in this form and shape. This is no doubt due to the fact that 
in England there is still remaining two of the round churches built by 
the Saxons. One of these churches is located at Northampton, the 
former home of many of the Burlington Friends, and no doubt suggested 
the above form of structure. The first meetings of Friends at Burlington, 
New lersev, were held under a tent covered with sail cloth, then in the

log- house of Thomas G ir(hncr, and tlien in the home of John W'ooLston, 
whicli was the first frame liouse erected in Burling-ton and pro1)al)ly in 
New Jersey. Tliirteen couples passed meeting-s for marriaoe before the 
year 1681. The first yearly meeting' was held in Thomas Gar. liner's 
h( use. 28-6 mo., 1681. and was composed of the following, Shrewsl)ury, 
S£:lem. Burlington, Ancocas, Shackamaxon and Chester, ( Aloorestovvn ) 
on the west side ot the River De'aware. The first meeting of Friends 
was held at Shrewslnu'}' in 1670, Salem, 1675, first house at Chester Iniilt 
of stone, 1720, I1V Cadwalader. First meetings held in Evesham, 1695, 
and in the same year joined tlie Xewtown. (Haddonfield) monthly meet- 
ing. In 2-1 mo., 1685, Benjamin Moore and Joseph Haines subscribed a 
portion of lumber towards building the above church, which shows that 
i;aw nulls run b\' water power must have come into use about this time, 
otherwise this lund)er must ha\-c been sawed by hand or imi)orted from 
England, which is not probable. Elizabeth Mason Collins, and lohn 
Woolman, Jr., no doubt attended meetings and spoke in this church as 
the Spirit gave them utterance.

John Busby, weaver, of ]\lilton, in the Parish of Shipton, belonging to

HISTORY. 

This relic was no doubt brought from England in the "Good Ship 
Kent." 1677. by Thomas Stokes. It then passed into the home of Sarah 
Stokes, his daughter, who in 1693 married Benjamin Moore, the pro- 
genitor of the ]\Ioore Famil}' in America, and after whom JMoorestovvn, 
Xew jerse}'. is named. 

It was next used in tlie home of his son, Joseph Moore, who in 
1736 married Patience W'oolman. It descended from them to their 
slaughter, }ilar}- Moore, who married John !\lason in 1759. She died, 
and in 1761 John married her sister, Elizal)eth Moore. She also died, 
and in 1773 John Mason married Elizabeth Ballinger. From this home 
this relic came into tlie home of Alu'aham Mason and Eleanor Borton, 
jind from them descended to his son John }^Iason and wife. Charity Bor- 
ton, wlio l)rcught it from Burlington coimty, Xew Jersey, to Fulton 
oountw Ohio, in 1839. At his decease it was piu'chased by John Borton, 
the sixth, of A\'est Unit}', Williams count}', Ohio, and was presented to 
his (lau;4"hter Lvdia Borton and husljand, John R. INIason, now of Ship- 
shewana. Indiana. 

It will be noticed that wa.rming pans whicli were used in the latter 
part of the 17th centur}' were more elal:)orate in design and construction. 
This specimtn ante-dates the use of sto^■es and had done service for 
man\' \"ears before the United States government was organized.

prenticed to a trade, which she followed until 18 vears of age, when she 
united in marriage with John ^vlason, a memljer of Evesham Monthlv 
IMeeting, X. J., with vrhom she lived a little more than 4 vears, and of 
whom she speaks in her memoirs as a truly affectionate husband, and few, 
she believed, ever lived together in greater jiarmony and love. But He 
who I believe brought us together, saw meet to separate us. A short 
time 1:)efore he expired, in a very atTectionate manner, he said to me, 
''A\'ell, m_\' dear, I think \\-e have nearl}- fulfilled our marriage covenant, 
and shall have nothing to answer for upon that account." He also ex- 
pressed that he saw nothing in his way, and believed he shou'd go to 
rest, the remembrance of which always affiu'ded comfort and satisfac- 
tion to her mind. Being left a widow with two small children, life's 
burden seemed truly great, but lier faith in her Eord and Master. Inioved 
her up, and kept her through all trials and discouragements. In the 
year 1778, she was again united in marriage with Job Collins, of Eves-

1820, Northumberland count}-. Pa., came to Knox county, Ohio, wh.ere 
they resided until 1839, and then removed to Williams countv, Ohio. 
John was a born athlete. An exj^ert swimmer, a good woodsman a.nd 
could distance his fellow laborers in husking, l:iindin.g up wheat or using 
the scythe or cradle. His favorite sport was hunting and fishing. In 
lum'iing deer his favorite method was "belling" then.i, this was done 
l)y strapping a cow bell to the horses neck, he would then niount and

with loaded rifle quietly saunler tlirou§"h the woods. At this eaii\- day 
all cattle had to be pastured in the woods, hence each herd had its bell 
cow, and this being the case the deer became used to the bells and many 
times herded with the cattle, hence a hunter riding a belled horse could 
readily come within rifle shot of the deer. The favorite horse used for 
this purpose was a fine large sorrel stallion, owned we believe, by Asher 
Ely, and John Ely has located to the writer many places where deer 
have been killed by him, in this way. The horse was so trained that he 
would stop with head erect, while the rifle rested between his ears and 
was aimed and fired. The deer when killed would then be *'ierked." 
thrown across the horse behind the rider and taken to the cabin home. 
John Ely deceased the 26-9 mo., 1878, a man greatly loved and esteemed 
by all who knew him.

with his ])arents to Fulton county. Ohio, in 1839. being; a lad 13 years 
of age. 

He attended the public schools in X. J., and secured what education 
he could obtain from the pioneer schools of Fulttju count)'. Ohio. His 
boyhood clays were s])ent in helping to clear and improve the land taken 
up by his father and the raising and distilling of peppermint.

master, which office he held for se\'-eral years. 

He had some knowledo'e of la\v. althonoh iie\er achiiitted to the 
l)ar, and pleaded many cases in justice cciirt. 

His knowledge o-f medicine was such that he never employed a 
physician in his home, and although they passed through several epi- 
demics of fex'er, Ids children ad grew up to man and womanhood. 

In politics he was an ardent a1)olitionist until after the emancipa- 
tion of the slaves. \\ hen he l)ec'ime a Democrat. As to his religious 
\devvs, he clings to the tents of his early fathers, the Hicksite Friends. 

During the war of the Rebellion, he enlisted in the 38th Regiment, 
Ohio \^o]. Infantry, luit was rejected owing to weak eyes, (myopia) and 
other p]i\'sical ailments. 

in 1866, the famih' moved to Ransom township, Hillsdale county, 
Alich., wdiere he located on a large farm and later entered into the 
uiercantile Inisiness at Frontier, Mich. 

He is still li\-ing. in his 82nd year, and with his youngest sister, 
Naomi Prickitt. are all that sur\d\'es of his father's family, in which 
there weve nine children, four l)0}'s and hve girls. 

He gives man\' reminiscences of the earl}' days, and the hardships 
•endured, among others, how he and his younger l)rother, .Abraham, 
killed a deer, ddie gun rested on his shoulder wdiile Abraham aimed and 
fired it. The aim pro\-ed true and there was meat and great rejoicing 
in the Mason home. 

( )ne dour mill had to do the grinding for the pioneers scattered 
o\er a wide tract of country, so that a peck of corn was a grist for each 
famih'. hence, Reuben or his l)rother, Abraham, had to visit the mill 
each day astride of the old familx' horse, which they called Dave. The 
same uhich hitched to a one horse wagon brought the family from New 
Jersey and landed them in their new liome in ()hio. This noble old 
charg'er made one or two sul)se(pient \isits to New Jersey and Phila- 
delphia, Pa., carrying to that cit}', peppermint oil and returning with 
boots and shoes and other famil}' supplies, or in other u'crds, g'oing six 
hundred miles to market. 

Reuben Borton Alason was an educator and helped to l)uild up 
the pieneer schools of Franklin, Fulton county, Ohio. He was for many 
years an officer on the school board, was also one of the township trus- 
tees. After his removal to Michigan he was elected to the office of Justice 
of the Peace, which office he filled to the satisfaction of the i)ul)lic and 
all concerned. 

The village of Trenton would, no doul)t, ha\'e thrix-ed and became a 
business place, l)ut parties owning the adjacent land, refused to survey 
aufl dispose of \'illage lots, hence, tlie town ceased to grow and thrive.

Dear Brother: — 

I take this opportunity of writing a few^ lines to let thee know that 
I am just middling well, hoping that when thee gets this, it will find 
thee and all thy famih', and all the rest of my folks, and also others, all 
enjoying good health,. as that is one of the greatest blessings we have 
in this world. I heard of Bethuel's death, which was sad news to me to 
think that one so young and in the prime of life should be called away; 
but the Lord knows best, and what is best for us; so let His will be done,, 
not ours. Tell Father not to fret about it for all thino-s are for the best.

James Mason, the only male heir of John Mason, the Immigrant, 
who lived to raise a family, married Lida Busby. They left four sons, 
Jacob, Isaac, John and Solomon. The descendants of John and Solomon 
have been traced, while those of Jacob and Isaac but little is known. The 
'former married Rachel Tewksbury, and with his son William sold their 
landed estate in Evesham township, Burlington county. New Jersey, to 
James Mason, son of Solomon, wdio married Mary Lee. The deed is 
dated 5-4 mo., 1786, recorded at Mt. Holly, New Jersey, and the con- 
sideration was 415 pounds. After this sale, the family moved to Red 
Stone, Pa., and later William located at Marietta, Ohio, and his father, 
with other members of the family, journey on into Kentuckv, where 
sojne of his descendants still reside. 

Isaac Mason is believed to have also located in Pennsylvania, and 
is believed to have been the father of Ernest Mason, who was born in 
Pennsylvania, and later returned to the birth place of Isaac, his father. 
He was the father of William Mason, a millwright by trade. He lived 
to be a man past eighty years of age, and died at Mount Holly, New 
Jersey, in 1907, leaving two sons, William, Jr., and Josiah. The former 
lives in Camden, New Jersey, and the latter at Mount Hollv. Ernest 
Mason's home in Pennsylvania was near Brandywme. 

Other New Jersey Masons who were probably related to the Eves- 
ham branch, as to whom no positive data could be secured, were: John 
B. Mason. He had one brother who went west, and may have been the 
progenitor of the family in Indiana. John B. and his brother were or- 
phans. The former was brought up by a man named Joseph Brown of 
Shamong township, Burlington county, New Jersey. He married Eliza- 
beth Shinn. They had six children as follow^s : AA'illiam H., married 
Hannah A. Lippincott. He died 1-7 mo., 1880; Silas C. m irried Lvdia 
Willits; Joseph B., married Margaret Dobbins; Thomas S. married Mar- 
garet Mitchel of Richmond, Va. ; Samuel S. married Eliza Culterlv; Mar- 
garet S. married John Forncrook of Haddonfie'd, New Jersev. Another 
family is that of the Rev. John R. Mason of Collingvvood, New [er.>ev. 
His great-grandfather, he thinks, came direct from England, and settled 
near Honesdale, Pa. His grandfather was John Mason, who had one 
sister Nancy, who married a man by the name of Jameson. Thev were 
the only children. At the age of twenty-one years Jolm came to Xew 
Jersey, and settled at Cranberry. Pie married Ann K. Pessine. Thev 
had three children: Rcjjert P., father to John R. Mason; Marv, who 
married Abyele Dey and Margaret, single; Rol)crt P. Mason resides at

South Amboy, New Jersey. 

We give below some account of John and Thomas Mason of Salem, 
Salem county, New Jersey, by Thomas Shourds, from his history of 
"Fenwick Colony" of West New Jersey. Thomas Shourds married Sarah 
Thompson, daughter of Joseph Thompson and Ann Mason, a descendant 
of John Mason. John and Thomas landed in Philadelphia, Pa., in 1683, 
and were no doubt cousins of John Mason who settled in Evesham about 
1677. Search has been made in England, parish records of ^^"inchcomb, 
and all others in Gloucestershire, also various records in this count\', but 
positive proof giving the exact relationship could not be secured. After 
giving quotations taken from Shourd's History, we append data taken 
from Colonial Records, Trenton, New Jersey, and also from accounts 
of treasurer of Salem county, New Jersey, 11 mo., 1720 to 1728 in- 
clusive. 

Mason Famih- — Shourds' History and Genealogy of Fenwick's 
Colony of Salem county, New Jersey, pages 150-152. 

"John Mason was a native of Gloucestershire, England, and resided 
in the parish of A\'inchcoml). He emigrated to America when a young 
man, and landed at Philadelphia in 1683. Soon afterward lie came to 
Salem to live, and purchased a to\\'n lot in the town, containing sixteen 
acres. It lay on the south side of Broadway and was bounded on the 
west by Samuel Hedge's land. He erected a l)rick house there and 
lived in it for some time. In 1685 he purchased 5,000 acres of land. 
******* About the year 1690 John Mason purchased of Roger ]\Iil- 
ton, 1,000 acres of upland and salt marsh in the township of Elsinborough. 
It was bounded on the east by Samuel Nicholson's allotment of 2,000 
acres; on the west by Redroc Morris" land. In 1695 he built a substantial 
brick dwelling, left Salem, and lived on his landed estate before de- 
scribed. In 1704 he built a large addition to it, which made it one of 
the largest l)rick dwellings that was in the county at that early dav. lohn 
Mason married Sarah Smith, daughter of John Smith of And:)elbury; 
she was born near London, England, 27th of 10 mo., 1671. (Births of 
children as in Salem Mo. Mg-. Records). He owned land in various 
parts in Fenwick tenth. He purchased considerable tract of land in 
Monmouth precinct of Anna Salter, erected a flour mill about J 705. 
***** He was appointed a commissioner for the public highwavs in 
1706; was a member of the legislature for two- or three vears, and one 
of the Justices of Salem county for a number of vears. He was a lar^e 
landholder in the state of Delaware, likewise in Pennsylvania in the 
neighborhood of Chester. His descendants are not verv numerous. 
There are none at the present time by the name of Mason of his descend- 
ants in this country. John Goodwin ?/ason, who died in 1839, was the 
last of the male descendants. There are cjuite a number in the female line 
who are direct descendants of John Mason, the emigrant." 

"It is probable Thomas Mason emigrated from England to West 



246 MASON FAMILY 

New Jersey about tlic same time his brother John Mason (hd. He re- 
sided in the town of Salem some length of time. * * * * He i)nrchased five 
hunch^ed acres of land in Upper Mannington, being ])art of Fenwick's 
grove. He soon became a citizen of that township, and conti.'mto. /j 
reside there until his death. In 1720 he purchased of Samuel Fen'--''~k 
Hedge five hundred acres of land, being part of Hedgefield. Tht.^ is 
nothing to show that he even took an active part in the i)ublic affairs 
of the colony." (See page 534 d. ) "I see In- the court records he 
occasionally served as one of the grand jurors. { Births of children of 
Thomas and Elizabeth Mason as in Salem records. ) James Mason, son 
of Thomas and Elizabetli Mason, became in possession of nearlv all of 
the large landed estate in the township of Mannington. that belonged 
to his father, Thomas Mason. He married a daughter of Abe] Nicholson. 
They had no issue. He devised the greater part of his landed estate 
to his nephew, James Mason Woodnut. son of Jonathan W'oodnut. James 
left his mill and farm adjoining to his wife's niece, Ann. the daughter 
of John Nicholson."

Eeligions and P^raternal Affiliations 

In compiling this "History of the Borton and Mason Families," we 
should consider our task only partially completed, were we tc omit men- 
tion of the religious, political and fraternal status taken by the members 
of these families. 

The early fathers who immigrated to America were fruits of the 
religious reform inaugurated by George Fox, in England, in 1643. The 
Society of Friends to wliich these immigrants adhered was greatly pros- 
pered until the coming of Elias Hicks, through whose teachings a split 
was caused in the original church, in the year 1827. At this time and 
previous, many Friends were immigrating from New Jersey to Ohio and 
Indiana, which was then known as the "Far West " The Friends \vho 
thus sought new homes, in many instances reared up nt'v churches, 
either orthodox or Hixite, according to their faith. Others found a 
church home with the then existing denominations: Baptists, Metho- 
dists, Presljyterians, Disciples, Congregationalists, and later the United 
Brethren in Christ. In perusing these pages, the reader will notice the 
names cf many descendants cf these families who are and ha\e l^een 
]■> loiters in tliese churches. Atheists, Deists, Skeptics, and Universalists 
are ver\' rare, if they exist at all. and the members of the above named 
families are always found in favor of moraiit)', religion and g"Ood govern- 
ment. 

Poiitically, tlie Bortcn and Mason inmiigrants, in common with 
Friends did not engage in political affairs, and were non-combatants 
during the \^'ar of the Revolution and were, no doubt, divided in opinion 
as to the outcome. When the evils of the African slave trade l^ecame 
apparent, they laljcred in common with others, for its extermination, 
first in England and then in America. T.hev freed their own slaves and 
later l:elped to establish "the Underground Railway,'" and v\lien the 
clcud cf the Rebellion darkened tlie sky of the Republic, these families 
contril uLcd of their means and many of their young men went to the 
front, some cf \-.'hich returned no mere to the h.cme of their childhood, 
lut s'ccp in south_er!i graves. Pre\-icus to tlie war, these families, almost 
lo a man, cs])cused the cause lied l^y tlie abolition partv. -\fter the 
siave-'y question ut-s forever settled and cth::r political issues came to 
ihe front many becan-e adherents to the cause cf prohibition, others 
joined tlie r.inks of fr^e silver, some became Den.iocrats (free traders) but 
tlic great m -jority still help to hold aloft the banner of tlie Repu])lican 
party, at the present time, 1907. 



254 MASON FAMILY 

Fraternally. As to the fraternities, some meml:)ers of these families 
have united with the Free ]\Iasons and have 1)ecome recoo-nized leaders 
in that order. Others have become Oddfellows, while some mav be found 
as members of the insurance fraternities, and others who are eno-aoed in 
agricultural pursuits, have become patrons of husbandry and praise 
the Grange and its benefits, but the majority of the meml^ers of tli^^se 
families hold aloof from all secret societies, which is in no doul^t due to 
the teaching of Friends' discipline, and no desire for public preferment, 
as to offtce. A\'e will quote the article of discipline in question, taken 
from the rules adopted by Friends' yearly meeting, of the state of Ohio, 
and is in substance the same as all others. 

"Rule as to ^Masonry and other Kindred Associations." 

As a church, we have ever held that secret, oath-bound societies as 
Freemasons, Oddfellows and other kindred associations are contrarv to 
the example and teacliings of the Lord Jesus, hurtful to the best in- 
terests of his church and a serious hindrance to the spiritual life and 
growth in grace, of its members: we therefore aitectionatelv enjoin it 
upon our youth, not to connect themselves in membership with such ; 
and if any of our members are found to l)e active or adhering members 
of such societies or if any should join them, thev should l)e tenderlv and 
faithfully laljored with and if such lal)or prove ineiiectuil. the^' sliould 
be dealt with as in other cases of otTense." 

A few words might be said with regard to tlie financial standing of 
tla^s families. A\ e l)e]ie^■e that the request of King Solomon. "That he 
bei-given neither poverty nor riclies" w^ould apply to their financial stand- 
ing^ which is the result of their own efforts and desires, to live modestly, 
do justly and owe no man, thereby keeping the injunction as given by the 
Apostle Paul. In one or two cases it might require seven figures to 
represent the accumulated wealth and in others only two or three, yet 
as tar as we know, avarice with its kindred vices has never led a mem- 
ber of either famih- into the penitentiary, nor a lack of industry and thrift 
compelled any to appeal for alms or shelter in a home for the unfor- 
tunate. Speculation in stocks and otherwise has ])een tal)ooed as fickle 
and uncertain and all games of chance which promise much for nothing, 
but the rule seems to have been to make the income alwavs more than 
the outgo and with prudence and perse\'erence, a competency for old age 
will be assured, ^^'e ai)end the following diagram of loss and gain whicli 
may be interesting.

GENEALOGY 255 



The Famous Packer vs Nixon Litigation 

On the following pages we append the opinion given by the at- 
torneys in the case of the representatives of Daniel Jones; also the 
afifirmation of Rhocia Packer Borton, "Packer vs. Nixon," in the matter 
of the estate of Mathias Aspclen. This snit at law was l)egun in 1828 
and decided in 1850. The object in bringing this action was to recjver 
under the will of Mathias x\spden, Jr., property which had descended 
through his mother from his great-grandfather, Daniel Jones. It will 
be seen from the above that the Packer heirs could not well claim 
under the Aspden will, but should have commenced in an early dav, a 
suit for ejectment, and recovery of the property. Daniel Jones, having- 
died intestate, according to the opinion given by the attorneys above, 
there are at least two undivided shares, one of which should go to the 
descendants of Rhoda Packer and Samuel Borton. 

Opinion ;'n the Case of the Representatives of Daniel Jones. 

AVe have examined, although but cursorily, yet satisfactorilv, th.e 
claims exhibited upon the part of the descendants of Daniel Jones, to 
certain real estate situated in the city of Philadelphia and Xorthern 
Liberties. Prima facia, there is no doubt resting upon the face of the 
title of those parties. The title to the property which they claim being by 
unequivocal and uncjuestioned documents, established to have been 
legally vested in l^aniel Jones, thc'r progenitor. If Daniel Jon.es has not 
parted with said property, and I ha\'e met with nothing to induce me 
to suppose he has, and if his daughter Rebecca and her husband, to whom 
it must have descended, did neither convey it nor suffer it to be sold 
under executions, then it must ha^'e come regularly down to the four 
children of the said Rebecca and Philip Packer, viz: Samuel, Daniel, 
Rhoda and Rebecca. Under two of those, viz., Samuel and Rhoda, the 
present claims arise, and the question put to us is, whether, in the first 
place, the title in Samuel Jones is regular and sufiicient ; scondlv, whether 
there is anything in the Act of Limitations calculated to bar us from a 
recovery. The title, as we, have said, is regularly in the said Daniel, 
and of course, unless parted with, he having made no will, descended 
to his daughter. We have examined the Register's office, in order to 
ascertain the extent of personal property left by Daniel Jones, and find 
that it but little exceeded two hundred dollars. This certainlv is but a 
small personal estate, when compared with the vast extent of real jjro])- 
erty of which it is alleged he died possessed. However, it must be re- 
membered — we speak of other days than those in which we live — that 
at the period of Daniel Jones' death, furniture to the amount of two 
hundred dollars was not altog"ether contemptible; and we must bear in 
mind, that although the real estate in question is at this time, of im- 
mense value, it was, at the time of the purchase or grant, ui)wards of 



256 MASON FAMILY 

one hundred and twenty-five years since, of little or no consideration, 
in a pecuniary point of view. So that, upon reflection, whatever may 
now appear to have been the disparity between his real and personal 
estate — a disparity brought about by the lapse of more than a century, 
which has diminished in our estimation the value of the one, and in- 
creased, almost beyond proportion, that of the other — we may fairly 
conclude, that there is nothing in the circumstance referred to, cal- 
culated to excite unfavorable suspicion of tlie title by which the property 
was helcl by Daniel Jones, and, as far as we have been able to learn, 
no conveyance was made by him of the estate in question. Indeed, he 
died shortly after it became his, and the probability of his having trans- 
ferred it to others, is diminished by that consideration. There is an-' 
other circumstance which infallia1)ly shows that he, as well as his 
immediate heirs, died, seized of the chief part, if not all, of the real estate, 
the deeds for which have been sulunitted to us. It appears, that in the 
year 1768 Rebecca Aspden and Daniel Packer, two of the children of 
Rebecca Packer, the only child of Daniel Jones, executed a deed where- 
in they recite the title in their grandfather to certain real estate, and 
that recital accords wnth the description of the estate now claimed. We 
rnay therefore say that the property in question came unimpaired in*o 
t]ie hands of the grandchildren, viz., Samuel, Rhoda, Daniel and Rebecca, 
the two last of whom, as we have said, executed a deed in 1786, unto 
Matthais Aspden and James Hartley, wherein they state that they are 
the only surviving children of Rebecca Packer. 

Now, whether this were true or false matters Imt little in regard to 
our claims. If Rebecca and Daniel were the only survivnig children, 
thev Vv'ere certainly not the only children, and it is equally certain tiiat 
the other-two children of Rebecca, viz., Samuel and Rhoda, left numercu-> 
issue or offspring, some of whom are still alive, and all of whom are 
legally represented in this claim. This being the case, the deed referj-ci 
to could, of course, convey no right or title that was not possessed by 
the grantors. They may have been the only children, Init thev wer.e 
not the only heirs. Hence, we take it as pretty well established tlint 
dowii to the time of the grandchildren, no appropriation incompatible 
with our claim had been made of the real estate in dispute, and there is 
no reason to suppose that since that time no appropriation has been 
made. As to the second f|uestion. or that having relation to the Statute 
of Limitations, we can only ol)scr\-e, that we ha\'c been much at a loss 
in respect to the chronological part of thi:: incjuiry, and, consequently 
that if it were essentially necessary, we should encounter great difficulty 
in coming to a satisfactory conclusion upon the sul)ject. 

But wc arc inclined to tliink that tlie case may be placed upon other 
and better footing. The present holders of the property mav l)e con- 
sidered as not holding adversely, but as tenants in common with the 
present claimants so that it is optional with us cither to proceed by 



GENEALOGY. 257 

ejectment, provided the statute should not bar iis, or. if it should, wc 
can at least proceed in partition against the present holders of the de- 
batable lands, as tenants in common with us of the larger right, no time 
can deprive us. 

After infinite labor and difficulty, and a most careful investigation 
of the documents and papers submitted to our inspection, and after ex- 
tracting from among the rust and rubbish of near a centurv and a half, 
all the light that could be possibly derived, although certainly less than 
might have been desired, we are inclined to the opinion: — First, that 
Daniel Jones had a complete legal title vested in him at the time of his 
death, which descended to the present claimants. vSecondlv, that there 
is nothing in the deed from Daniel and Rebecca Packer calculated to 
afifect our claim; and thirdly, that although the statute may bar an eject- 
ment, the remed}' of partition is still open to the claimants.

Affirmation of Rhoda (Packer) Borton. 

Rhoda Borton, aged about 84 years, residing in the county of Bur- 
lington, in the state of New Jersey, in Evesham township, widow. Being 
duly affirmed on the part of the petitioners, deposes as follows: 

My father's name was Samuel Packer, called Samuel Jones Packer, 
and he sometimes put the Jones first. He was the son of Philip Packer 
of Pensauken. He(Philip) married Rebecca Jones; she was his second 
wife, and the daughter of Daniel and Mary Jones, as I have been told, 
the children of Philip Packer, by Rebecca Jones, were Samuel, Daniel, 
no other sons that I have any knowledge of; daughters, Rebecca, Martha, 
Rhoda, Mary, and I believe the name was Sarah, not Mary. Sarah mar- 
ried John Carter, I don't know her children. I believe she left children, 
but they were out of my knowledge. Rebecca married Roger Hartley 
of Bucks county; she married secondly Matthias Aspden ; her children 
by R. Hartley were Roger, James, Benjamin, Ann, Jennet, Bathsheba 
and Rebecca; I don't recollect any others, and am not sure I have stated 
them in the order of their birth; she left a child by Aspden, a son named 
Matthias, he was the only child that I know of. I was personally ac- 
quainted with Matthias Aspden the younger, and with his mother while 
he went to England. I cannot tell if Roger Hartley the younger left 
any children ; he was living in Pennsylvania some time ago. James and 
Benjamin are both dead; James left no children that I ever heard of; 
he died more than ten years ago, soon after I was married. Benjamin 
left daughters; I don't know of any sons, don't remember how many 
daughters nor their names, some of them married into the Brick family. 
Ann, the daughter of the first Roger Hartley, is dead; she married Will- 
iam Hinchman, she left children, one named Ann, another William, one 



258 BORTON FAMILY 

John, who is dead; he lived in Moorestown. Jennet died a young- woman, 
unmarried. Bathsheba married a Nathan Zanes and left two daug^hters 
and some sons, the daughters are Hving and I believe some of the sons 
are; the daughters were named Ann and Sarah, Ann married a man 
named Ellis, and Sarah a Champion; Ann lived recently near Haddon- 
field, and Sarah in it. 

Rebecca, daughter of the first Roger Hartley, married John Kay. 
now both dead, leaving children, whose names I do not konw. They 
have both been dead more than ten years. They left a son named 
Matthias; he is dead; he was married. I don't know if he left children; 
he died not a great while ago, perhaps eight or ten years. My father, 
Samuel Packer, had ten children, Parthena, Rebecca, Susan, Sarah, Ruth, 
myself (Rhoda), Daniel, John, and Eleanor. Parthena married William 
Lopen. They are both dead; they died more than ten years ago, I ex- 
pect. They left Uriah, Rhoda and Ravhel, their children. I can't tell 
if Uriah is living; he went to the new country; I understood his father 
went after him, but he must be deceased if he did. Rhoda married a 
man named Bailey, I don't know if she is dead or alive. Rachel, I don't 
know whether she married, or is living or dead. These are all the chil- 
dren of Parthena I know of. Rebecca married Caldwell. They are both 
deceased; he has been dead many years and she too; they left one 
daughter named Sarah, a son Thomas, who died during the old war. 
Sarah married Thomas Sims and had some children, who are deceased. 
They had two grandchildren, I can't tell their names. Thomas left no 
children, Sarah, my sister, died childless; so did Samuel. Ruth married 
James Dufifield; she is dead, dying in the time of the yellow fever in 
Philadelphia. She left Samuel, James and Rhoda. Ther<: was also one 
Edward. Samuel is dead; he died an infant; James died a young man, 
out at sea. I expect he died unmarried. John is living, Edward is liv- 
ing; Rhoda is dead; she married James Reynolds. She died very lately, 
since the death of the testator. I married Samuel Borton. 

Daniel, my brother, has been dead many years. He left Samuel, 
John, Daniel, Susan, Elizabeth. These are all I can recollect. Samuel is 
living, I believe they are all living; there were children who died in 
infancy. Susan married Hugh Cox, Elizabeth is unmarried, my brother 
John is dead, leaving issue, his children were James, Edward, (I don't 
know which was first) Martha, Mary and John, John was the youngest. 
My brother John died a long time ago, more than thirty years ago. My 
husband has been dead more than thirty years. 

The children of my brother John are all living except John, who 
died twelve or thrteen years ago; he died a young man without children. 
My sister Eleanor married Amos Bee, they are both dead; he died a con- 
siderable time ago; she married again and died five or six years ago, her 
second husband was Isaiah Hunt, I think died before Matthias Aspden's 
death; her children by Amos Bee were Deborah, who died before her, 



GENEALOGY. 259 

■ '' '■*. 

Samuel, Ephraim, Packer, Eleanor and Rebecca. Deborah died in in- 
fancy. Samuel is dead, leaving no children that I know of. He died 
since his mother, about ten years ago. Ephraim died at seat, leaving no 
children, before his mother's death. Packer had one daughter; I don't 
know whether she is dead or alive, the daughter is named Deborah, she 
is married. Eleanor Bee was twice married, her first husband was Isaac 
Leeds, her second was Joseph Wiley; she died I guess as much as seven 
years ago, her children are living for aughht I know. Charlotte is just 
married to Joseph Sickler, Mary Ann is living, unmarried, and Ruth, I 
believe, had children by Wiley I don't exactly remember. Haywood is 
one; he is living; they had a daughter who died a child. Rebecca Bee 
married Asa VanSciever, they are both living. Eleanor Bee had by her 
second husband Isaiah Hunt, Samuel, Rhoda and Isaiah; they are all 
living I believe. Rhoda married Jacob Sickler. Rhoda, my aunt, the 
daughter of Philip Packer and Rebecca Jones, married George Hammitt. 
They are dead many years ago, sixty years ago; they left children. They 
had Daniel, who died a young man unmarried, for all I have heard. 
George was the next, Samuel, Rhoda, Theodosia, Rebecca, Benjamin, 
Joseph, Sarah, Elias and Thomas. George is dead, he died many years 
ago, before I was married, he left children, one son Daniel and some 
daughters, whom I do not recollect. Daniel lived in Moorestown. I 
don't remember the names of any of the daughters. Samuel Hammitt 
died, I believe, many years ago; I don't remember how many children he 
left nor their names. Rhoda Hammitt married a man. named William 
Wheaton, and had one daughter by him; they are both dead a long time 
ago. They did six or eight years ago. The daughter's name was Mary ; 
she married Thomas Haines, I believe. I think she and he are both 
living. Theodosia Hammitt is dead, it may be ten years ago; she mar- 
ried a man named Manning, I think, and left children, whose names I 
do not know. Rebecca Hammitt died a young woman, unmarried, 
iohn Hammitt is dead I believe; I don't know how long ago he died. 
I don't remember the children; he had sons and daughters, I believe; 
he had a son named Eves, but I don't know what became of him. I 
think he had a son Thomas who deceased lately. He kept a tavern, I 
don't know what children he left. I believe there Was a daughter named 
Hepzibah; I have not heard of her death. Benjamin Hammitt went out 
to the new country and settled there, I don't know if he had any chil- 
dren, and I have not heard of his death. Joseph Hammitt married and 
lived at the Rising Sun; he died 14 or 15 years ago. I cannot remem- 
ber his children. He had a son George, but I cannot tell whether he is 
living or dead. Sarah Hammitt married Wothon, who has been dead a 
good many years, and her husband, too. I don't know that I saw any 
of the children except John. There were others whom I remember see- 
ing when they were small. Elias Hammitt, son of George and Rhoda, 
I most think is dead, leaving a daughter or two. I think there were one 



260 BORTON FAMILY 

or two others. Thomas Hanimitt died many years ago. I know nothing 
of his children. Being examined on the part of the complainant, the 
witness says I cannot say whether my father was older than my Uncle 
Daniel, but I rather expect so. My father died first, some of us were 
young when my father died. My uncle Daniel left no children; he had 
one who died an infant. Daniel, my brother, was older than my brother 
John. I had but two brothers. My brother Daniel died about ten years 
after my marriage, as well as 1 can recollect. (Produces her marriage 
certificate. Married on the nth of November, 1766, Samuel Borton to 
Rhoda Packer). My uncle Daniel died about five or six years after my 
marriage. My brother Daniel died ten or fifteen years before my hus- 
band's death, which was about thirty years ago. Samuel was the oldest 
of my brother Daniel's sons. I cannot say if the oldest child, but believe 
he was. Samuel, my nephew, is living; I expect he is here now. 

Being examined on behalf of Job Packer, the witness says, I don't 
recollect a Philip Packer, who married Ann Coates. My grandfather had 
a son Philip, who married and lived in Pennsylvania ; he was not the son 
of Philip and Rebecca Jones, he was the son by a first wife. I remember 
a son of his namd Aaron, comig out of Pennsylvania to see my mother. 
I don't know the name of the first wife, he was an old man when he 
married my grandmother. I have heard my mother say that his head was 
as white as a sheet. I had not a good chance of knowing the Philip Pack- 
er's family of Pennsylvania. I knew my grandmother very well; she came 
and stayed with my mother; perhaps I was then two years old. 

Being examined on the part of Jone Zane and Isaac Zane, the wit- 
ness says, Matthias Aspden, the testator, his brother, James Hartley and 
waiting man came to our house after they returned from England, not 
long afterwards, a few years perhaps, Matthias Aspden, the testator, 
went with his father to England to get his, the father's eyes coached. 
This was when I was about fourteen or fifteen years old; he wrote to 
his mother that he was then going to school in England. I don't re- 
member when he went to England a second time. They came to see if 
uncle Daniel had signed his rights to lots in the city of Philadelphia, 
my grandmother wanted my father Samuel to have, because he bore 
the maiden name. 

Matthias Aspden came down with Hartley to get all us children to 
sign our right to him. I believe Matthias Aspden returned to England 
about the beginning of the war. I think he came home after it was 
settled. I don't know how long he stayed in this country; he was back- 
wards and forwards several times. I did not see him the last time he 
was here. RHODA BORTON.

Rhoda Borton, being examined on the part of the petitioners, de-

poses as follows: I have heard of Matthias Aspden bein^ twice married. 
The issue of the first marriage was a daughter, who was married to Cap- 
tain Harrison. I never heard when I was young, many years ago, any 



doubts of her being born in lawful wedlock.
