More than a quarter of a century ago, I began to 
ask myself "Who were my forefathers?" and to set 
about trying to answer the question. I took up this 
quest and have carried it forward in the midst of an 
exceedingly busy life, and of many engrossing cares. 
The results accomplished have required much time and 
study. Great numbers of letters have been written, 
records and documents have been examined, and hun- 
dreds of town and local histories and published gene- 
alogies have been consulted. Necessarily the work has 
not been continuous. Other occupations prevented do- 
ing very much at any one time. But the purpose has 
been always in mind, and more or less correspondence 
usually on hand. 

Genealogical research is a subject of much interest, 
and the pursuit and identification of a family ancestor 
a source of very great pleasure to the pursuer. Then, 
too, the incidental study of American history is to the 
genealogist exceedingly valuable.

This work came to me also as a duty. I have been 
informed so often, that some one not long dead could 
have answered my questions, or that some person once 
had a family record but it was now lost, that I felt it 
incumbent on me to collect and put together what was 
yet available, lest, after another passing generation, 
much of it would be lost forever. 

It is too much to hope that what I have gathered is 
free from errors. Great care has, however, been taken 
to make it a record of facts, and much that has been 
reported as family tradition has been left out, because 
not sufficiently authenticated. 

In following the lives of my early forefathers, I have 
become more familiar with the settlement of the At- 
lantic coast, and with the struggles of the hardy pio- 
neers who made the first homes of white people there, 
and whose descendants pressed westward from genera- 
tion to generation. My ancestors no longer seem to 
me far away. I know them. For instance, in my 
thoughts I have hunted and fished and walked and 
talked with Peter Gunnarson Rambo, along the Dela- 
ware, many years before William Penn came to give 
his name to the unbroken forest which stretched away 
five hundred miles to the West. All his simple, rugged 
life has pictured itself in my mind, and he has become 
a real person to me ; and he is but one of the many of 
those sturdy, honest men who were laying the founda- 
tions of a nation. 

Jenkins Family Book. 9 

I have been peculiarly impressed with the longevity 
of our early, forefathers and mothers. They were often 
in the midst of privations and exposures, and their 
manner of living was plain and often hard, — but how 
long they lived ! And how much, too, of real good 
they did ! Most of them were Christians, — and were 
people of great faith. They were not troubled with the 
doubts and questions which meet one everywhere in 
this modern time ; their families were large, and they 
were reared in the fear of God. And out of that sim- 
ple, rugged religious life came the great men of the 
Revolution. There are twenty-five times as many peo- 
ple in our country today as were in the colonies Vvhen 
they declared their independence. If the manhood of 
our time were as strong, or true, or righteous as then 
we ought to find twenty-five each of W^shingtons, 
Hamiltons, Jefifersons, Franklins, Adamses, Morrises, 
and others who were the mighty heroes of that era. It 
is a comfort and an encouragement to mankind, that 
modern arts, and luxurious living are not necessary to 
the production of the best and truest and greatest man- 
hood. Rather it has been from homes where life was 
plain, and where there appeared to be a poverty of 
pleasures and amusements that men have come who 
have been the leaders and benefactors of mankind. Let 
this fact, demonstrated so fully in our history, be an 
encouragement to those wnose worldly circumstances 
are straightened. Luxurious living and pleasure seek-

ing have been the blight and ruin of many noble souls. 
Character, not condition, measures success in life. 

Every man inherits composite blood and natural ten- 
dencies which do much to make him what he shall 
become. The farmer knows this well as regards the 
lower animals, and he gives most careful attention 
to the pedigree of his horses and other stock. How 
much more important the genealogy of man which in- 
volves not only physical being, but also the higher 
intellectual, moral and Christian faculties. 

We seldom remember that our ancestors double with 
each generation. Each of us has, or had, two parents, 
four grandparents, eight great-grandparents, sixteen 
great-great-grandparents, and so on. Going no farther 
back than the tenth generation, beginning with our- 
selves as number one, we find five hundred and twelve 
ancestors of that degree. In the eleventh there are 
one thousand and twenty-four. In the twenty-first the 
number is more than one million and in the thirty- 
first more than a thousand millions of ancestors ! Yet 
the thirty-first generation carries us back only about 
one thousand years, or a little beyond the time of Wil- 
liam the Conqueror. This seems astonishing and im- 
possible, but it is a fact. It must also be remembered, 
however, that as we ascend in the family lines the 
number of ancestors is rapidly reduced by intermar- 
riages between blood relations. In fact, if all hnes 
could be traced out, the people of each clan or race 
would all be seen to be many-sided cater cousins to

each other, and the whole social structure to be a com- 
plicated mosaic of interwoven genealogies. Verily, 
"God hath made of one blood all the nations of the 

A few persons are able to trace out their remote 
progenitors until they reach some one who has worn 
a crown ; and they can show you the line of what they 
call their royal descent. They are not rare exceptions 
if all the records of every person were known. They 
are unusual in that the facts have been preserved. 
Probably every one living would find a crowned head 
in some of his lines if he could follow them all far 
enough. This, however, might not always be a matter 
of especial satisfaction. 

Most people over-emphasize the father lines. Very 
many of them hardly know the maiden names of their 
mothers; while ignorance of either name of their ma- 
ternal grandparents is very common. Each of us is 
as really a descendant of his mother as of his father ; 
and her father and mother, and her lines of ancestry 
have contributed just as much to make us what we are, 
as have our ancestors in the father's line. It is only a 
matter of name. For instance, about 1730, John Jen- 
kins married Rebecca Meredith, their descendants bear 
the Jenkins name but are just as much Meredith as 
i Jenkins through all their generations. If they had 
carried the mother's instead of the father's name this 
j would be evident. In recognition of this I have sought 
to follow up maternal Hues as far as possible, to the 
\ first American immigrant.

The Jenkins-Raymond ancestry in all its lines is a 
most worthy one. Nowhere among all these families 
is there a word or suspicion of dishonor. For the most 
part these ancestors have been well-to-do farmers and 
tradesmen, belonging to the great class of honest and 
industrious citizens which has ever been, and ever must 
be, the reliance and hope of the nation. 

The Jenkins genealogy and the larger portion of 
other facts brought together here have not been here- 
tofore published. 

I cannot make separate acknowledgement of all the 

sources from which I have gathered information. 

Where family genealogies have been published as is 

the case with the Raymonds, Putnams, and others, they 

have been freely consulted.

First Generation 

David Jenkins — ^Iargaret Rees (?). 

David Jenkins emigrated from Wales about, per- 
haps before 1700, and settled in the Great Valley of 
Chester Co., Pa. An old family Bible gives his place 
of settlement as "near Great Valley Church." This is 
not definite as there were four churches so known. 
The reference is supposed to have been to St. Peter's 
Episcopal, which was the first of the four. The early 
Jenkinses were usually Episcopalians, later Presby- 

A thorough investigation made by Gilbert Cope, a 

genealogist of recognized standing at West Chester, 

Pa., seems to identify this original American ancestor 

with David Jenkins of Whiteland township, a weaver 

/and farmer, whose estate was administered in Phila- 

[delphia under letters issued to his son David, Oct.

5, 1745. The name of wife was Margaret, perhaps 
Margaret Rees. Administrator's bond four hundred 
pounds sterling. One of the appraisers was David 
Meredith, probably the father of the wife of John 
Jenkins, next following. There are no papers or rec- 
ords on file giving names of children. The old Bible 
record referred to above mentions the said John, but 
says nothing as to whether he had or had not other 
children. If he has been properly identified in David 
of Whiteland, then he had also the son David of whom 
nothing more has been discovered by the writer of this 

Second Generation. 

John Jenkins — Rebecca Meredith. 

John Jenkins of Windsor, son of the first David, 
born 1711, died at Windsor, 1777. Married about 
1730, Rebecca, daughter of David Meredith. (See 
Meredith and Rush ancestors.) John Jenkins settled 
in 1733, in the Conestoga Valley, in Carnarvon town- 
ship, near Churchtown, and was the first settler there. 
He represented William Branson, an English gentle- 
man, for whom he purchased a large tract of land and 
erected the Windsor Iron Works, which were among 
the first in Pennsylvania. They afterwards became the

property successively of his son David Jenkins and of 
his grandson, Robert Jenkins. His wife, Rebecca, died 
Sept. 5, 1 77 1, aged 64. Both John and Rebecca were 
buried in the Episcopal Churchyard, Churchtown, Pa. 
Thev were members and supporters of that church. 

Children of John and Rebecca (Meredith) Jenkins.

4 Margaret Jenkins, born August 14, 1735, died October 4, 


5 George Jenkins, born December 14, 1736, married Miss 

Middleton and resided in Philadelphia, Pa. Probably

6 William Jenkins, born September 29, 1738, married 

Mary, daughter of Rev. Samuel Blair. Had one son, 
v/ho died on a voyage to the West Indies.

10 Benjamin Jenkins, born September 28, 1747, died August

18 Jenkins Family Book. 

John Jenkins left a large estate. His sons, John 
Isaac and Joseph were made executors of his will, and 
his "loving friends Jacob Morgan and Robert Armor'* 
were therein appointed "overseers of this my will to 
take care and see it performed according to my true 
intent and meaning." The will was dated in 1774 and 
proved May 17, 1777. He devised "that plantation and 
tract of land whereon I now live" to his son John. He 
also gave "plantations" to his sons Isaac and Joseph, 
and money bequests to David, William and Rebecca, 
also to his granddaughter Mary, the daughter of his 
son George. He mentions "my kinswoman Annie 
Rees." Then we get a glimpse of the "peculiar in- 
stitution" which afterward led to the Civil war, and 
which then existed in a mild form in Pennsylvania. 
He says : "Whereas, I have hired my negro man Quash 
to my son John for eleven years from the first day of 
March, 1772, at the end of which time I do allow my 
said negro man to be free from serving any person on 
my account. And I give my negro woman Cooba to 
my daughter Rebecca. But if my negro man Quash 
will be able to pay my daughter the sum of forty 
pounds at any time within three years after the ex- 
piration of the said eleven years, then it is my will 
that my said negro woman be free, and serve no per- 
son any longer than till the said forty pounds are 

The old Jenkins homestead at Churchtown has been 
in the family through all succeeding generations, and

is now owned by Miss Blanche Nevin, the well-known 
sculptor, a lineal descendant of said John Jenkins, the

Third Generation. 

John Jenkins — Elizabeth Douglas. 

John Jenkins, second son of John and Rebecca (Mer- 
edith) Jenkins, born Sept. 24, 1732, married EHzabeth 
Douglas of Douglasville, Pa., Oct. 30, 1770 (see

7 Elizabeth Jenkins, born November 15, 1787, married 

Isaac McCalmont, died in Chester County. Left a ' 
family of two sons and seven daughters, some of 
whom were recently still residing on the family 
homestead near Mast P. O. in the Pequea Valley. 
There was one daughter named Mary D. and one son 

8 Hannah Jenkins, born February 15, 1790, died August 

11, 1795. 

This John Jenkins was a prosperous yeoman, both 
he and his wife inheriting and sustaining the names 
and prominence of the two leading families to which . 
they belonged. 

There is a tradition noted in letters received by the 
writer, that he served in the Revolutionary army in 
the batallion commanded by his brother David, but this 
has not been verified. His granddaughter, the late Mar- 
garet (Jenkins) Hendricks, used to tell the writer of 
how he hauled grain to Valley Forge to feed the Amer- 
ican army, and of the trials and dangers which he en- 
dured on these expeditions. 

Fourth Generation. 

George Jenkins — Catherine Hamilton. 

George Jenkins, first son of John and Elizabeth 
(Douglas) Jenkins, born Aug. 30, 1776, married Cath- 
erine Hamilton, Aug., 1800, (see Hamilton- Jenkins 
ancestors) died in Chester Co., Pa., Aug. 15, 1829. 
Buried at Pequea. Catherine (Hamilton) Jenkins died 
Aug. 28, 1833. 

He was a farmer and miller, having a prosperous 
start in life, but met financial reverses. In a letter to 
the writer of this genealogy, from Martha Jenkins 
Nevin, written in 1884, after referring to the original 
Windsor homestead, she says : "The adjoining place 
was inherited by your grandfather George Jenkins, 
son of John Jenkins, second, who built on it a very 
large and costly mill at a time of great financial em- 
barrassment, and it caused his failure, as also the fail- 
ure of David Jenkins, a brother of my father, who had 
endorsed for him, and who lived on an adjoining farm 
higher up the creek."

ber 12, 1862. 

13 Benjamin Amzie Babbitt Jenkins, born July 22, 1828, 

died October, 1900. 

The first ten were born in Lancaster Co., and last 
three in Chester Co., Pa. 

Elizabeth Jenkins, No. i above, married William 
Smith. They lived in Pennsylvania and had two 
daughters, one of whom died unmarried; the other 
married a Mr. Long of Oxford, Pa., but died early in 
life, leaving one daughter, Mary Josephine Long, who

grew up and married Taylor Rogers ; lived at Oxford, 
Pa. ; died in 1875, leaving two sons, one of whom has 
since died unmarried; the other son, Howard Smith 
Rogers, a young man, resided, 1899, in Philadelphia, 

Margaret Jenkins, No. 2 above, married first, in Pa., 
April 3, 183 1, Elisha Wilson, who died Aug. 12, 1834. 
She came west with her brother, and married, second, 
at Fairfield, Iowa, May 29, 1844, William A. Hen- 
dricks of that place. He died there about 1855. She 
afterward died at the home of the family of her 
brother Robert, near Alexandria, Mo. Her body lies 
in Wolf Cemetery, St. Francisville, Mo. There were 
no children of either marriage. Mr. Hendricks left 
a son, William T., by a first marriage. She resided at 
Fairfield, Iowa, for many years, and was a member of 
the Congregational church there until her death. She 
was a faithful Christian, and a true and noble woman. 
Her disposition was cheerful, and she was always hope- 
ful and courageous. After the death of Elizabeth, the 
first wife of her brother, Robert, she took his infant 
son, the writer, then eight months old, to her home at 
Fairfield, where she watched over and cared for him 
during his infancy and early childhood. She could not 
have done more than she did for him for a child of her 
own. After the death of Mr. Hendricks, she went with 
the boy to live with his father in Missouri. 

The writer is that boy and desires to leave this record 
of his grateful remembrance of her love and care. Nor 

28 Jenkins Family Book. 

does he forget her husband, Mr. Hendricks. He was 
a genial, kindly, helpful man, and a good citizen. A 
native of Kentucky, he was an ardent Whig, support- 
ing General Taylor in 1848 and General Scott in 1852. 
He was a leader in the local politics of Fairfield. In 
1852 he resided on a farm about a mile east of the 
town, and there he set up a flag pole for me, from the 
top of which I kept flying in all pleasant weather a 
"Scott and Graham" American flag. It was great fun 
for me, a six year old child, to get together a few 
other little fellows, and go marching around that flag, 
shouting for Scott. I well remember how utterly 
broken hearted I was when I learned of his defeat.

Georg€ Washington Jenkins, No. 7 above, married, 
first, June 2, 1846, Mary Jeffrey, who died leaving no 
surviving issue. He married, second, at Fairfield,

They resided (1900) at No. 4268 Castleman Avenue, 
St. Louis, Mo. 

George Washington Jenkins was a merchant, first 
at Fairfield, Iowa, afterwards at Alexandria, Mo. 
Buried at Fairfield. 

Fifth Generation. 

Robert Jenkins — Elizabeth Rambo. 

Robert Jenkins, eighth son of George and Catherine 
(Hamilton) Jenkins, died on his farm near Alexan- 

Jenkins Family Book. 31 

dria, Mo., and his body was buried in Wolf Cemetery, 
St. Francisville, Mo. He married, first, in Chester 
Co., Pa., Elizabeth, daughter of Joseph Rambo (see 
Rambo ancestors.) They came West and settled in 
Clark Co., Mo., near the village of Chambersburg, about 
thirty miles west of the Mississippi river, where all their 
children were born. Elizabeth (Rambo) Jenkins died 
October 1 1, 1846. Her body was buried in the burying 
ground near Chambersburg, where it still lies. Robert 
Jenkins married, second, Martha Schee, widow of 
Arnold Schee of Clark Co., Mo. She was daughter 
of John McRea. It is said her parents came from the 
South. She had one child of her first marriage, George 
Washington Schee, who has led a successful business 
life. He resides at Primghar, Iowa. Martha (McRea) 
Jenkins died about 1857; buried in Wolf Cemetery, 
St. Francisville, Mo. 

Robert Jenkins removed about 1852, to the eastern 
part of Clark County, and purchased and settled upon 
a farm four miles west of Alexandria, Mo., and nine 
miles by the road from Keokuk, Iowa. He was a 
successful farmer, and left a large estate. His indus- 
try and energy were remarkable, and his tireless ac- 
tivity and exposure to the elements brought on his 
last sickness, from which he would doubtless have 
recovered but for his habit of persistent work, and his 
neglect to take proper precautions necessary to restore 
his health. He had a most unusual vital tenacity and 
lived and worked for four years after the disease 

33 Jenkins Family Book. 

which ended his life had fastened itself upon him. He 
had a strong individuality, and was frank, straight- 
forward and honest in all his dealings. 

Elizabeth (Rambo) Jenkins, his wife, was born Feb. 
26, 1813. Two years after her birth, her mother died. 
Elizabeth, when she grew older, did not remain at 
home with her father, but lived with the Russell family 
in Chester County, Pa., for some years previous to her 
marriage. In a letter written by her husband after her 
decease, he speaks especially of the Russells and he 
says Elizabeth ever cherished the memory of their 
kindness to her. Her father married again and his 
eldest child by his second marriage was Sarah Ann 
who married William James McKim, and between her 
and Elizabeth there was a strong sisterly affection. 
The western country to which Robert and Elizabeth 
came was new ; there was much sickness and few doc- 
tors ; they were remote from post offices and the roads 
were poor. They often referred to these matters in their 
letters to Mrs. McKim. The burden of her household 
and family cares, and the malarial climate were at 
length too much for even the constitution of Elizabeth, 
which was unusually strong. In the letter of her hus- 
band, already mentioned, he says : *Tt has been very 
sickly in this country this fall, we were all sick at one

sickness that she had had since we have been in the 
West." She belonged to a very long-hved stock, and it 
is sad indeed that she was called to leave her young 
children and pass over to the other side so early in 
life. She was a Presbyterian, and laments in one of 
her letters that there was no church of her preference 
near them. Her husband wrote of her : "She was a 
loving wife, a fond mother, and a sincere Christian. 
She was perfectly willing to try the reality of another 
world. It is a great comfort to me that she died in 
full faith of immortal glory." 

Pictures in those early days were not common, and 
none of our mother has come down to us. Her daugh- 
ter, Mrs. David Nelson Lapsley of Revere, Mo., re- 
members her well. Mrs. Sarah A. McKim, mentioned 
above, eighty-two years old in 1901, had also a dis- 
tinct recollection of the appearance of her half-sister, 
Elizabeth. From the information received from these 
sources, Elizabeth (Rambo) Jenkins may be described 
as a slender woman^ rather below medium height, 
with light golden hair and a fair complexion ; her eyes 
were also light, perhaps blue, her features regular, 
and her disposition quiet, but sweet and cheerful. 
She was an attractive young w^oman of rare good

same day the farm where she was Hving at the time of 
her death. It is located on a creek in the Fox river 
bottom, was then owned by a man named John Man^ 
tie. As we walked about this old Homestead, the 
thought of the hardships and privations she endured 
on the then frontier touched us very deeply. On the 
other hand, we remembered, thankfully, how her little 
flock of young children had all grown up and pros- 
pered ; hovv^ each one had counted for something on the 
better side of the world's life, and how at that day 
after the lapse of fifty-six years, all except Huldah, 
who was called away early, were alive and in good 
health (and still so in 1904) ; and we felt that truly 
the life of our mother, short as it was, had not been 
lived in vain. What joy would have been hers could 
she have known what was to be the future of her chil- 
dren in her dying hour ! But was it all hidden from 
her? Was not something of it realized to her faith, 
which sustained her and made her perfectly resigned 
to commit the care of her motherless little ones to the 
all-wise Father whom she so fully trusted? Yea, 
verily, ''Faith is the victory which overcomes the

The house on the Jenkins' farm near Alexandria was 
a two-story double affair with a great fire-place in the 
center, affording openings for log fires in the rooms 
on either side. It appeared to be frame, although one- 
half was built of logs and afterwards covered with 
weather boards. 

Jenkins Family Book. 35 

It was a comfortable hom€. The farm of several 
hundred acres was successfully conducted, improved 
and enlarged by the father of the family. After his 
death its management devolved upon John William, 
the eldest son, while the twin sisters were the house- 
keepers, and the family lived together until all were 
grown up, in harmony, happiness and prosperity. The 
boys all worked on the farm, going to school in win- 
ter, until they reached manhood. The great value of 
the summer "school" attended by these youngsters is 
so generally appreciated that comment is unnecessary. 
It was a home of hospitality and good cheer, and the 
occasions were rare when there was not company at 
the table and over night. 

The site of this home was not without attractions : 
To the east, four miles, across the flat bottom, at the 
confluence of the Mississippi and Des Moines rivers^, 
nestled the little town of Alexandria, in the "fifties/'' 
a place of very extensive business and great ambi- 
tions. Along its levee front, sweeping on toward the 
Gulf, rolled the great Father of Waters, a mile in width, 
and on its opposite side rose up from the river's edge 
the towering bluffs crowned by the city of Warsaw, 
Illinois. To the west of this home at about the same 
distance, stretched a long ridge of sand perhaps fifty 
feet high, then back of that the rising blue hills cov- 
ered with timber. On the sandy plain and along the 
foot of these bluffs were orchards and gardens and 
the commodious and hospitable farmhouses of well-to-

do inhabitants. One mile north of the Jenkins home, 
the historic Des Moines wound its way, in the summer 
time a shallow and harmless stream, among its shift- 
ing sand bars ; but swelled in its flood seasons to a 
mighty and resistless torrent, overflowing its banks 
and carrying destruction and terror to all the people 
of the plain. The Des Moines on its Iowa side was 
lined with high hills against the foot of which its 
waters beat continually, so that their fronts were un- 
dermined, and had slipped down and been carried 
away, leaving the faces of the hills to stand out bare 
and barren, justly called the yellow banks. 

Two miles south of the Jenkins' home, the Fox river 
came down, lined on either side with a fringe of tim- 
ber, a stream of considerable length and carrying a 
large volume of water. It will thus be seen that this 
homestead was situated in the midst of an extensive 
natural amphitheater, rivers on three sides, and bluffs 
to the east, to the north, and to the west. These natural 
boundaries enclosed some of the most productive land 
in the world. The soil was alluvium so required no 
fertilizing, and crops of corn yielding a hundred bush- 
els, and of wheat thirty bushels, to the acre, were not 

Six miles away at the north end of the sand ridge, 
on the Des Moines, was located the little village of 
St. Francisville. Here is the Wolf Cemetery 
where so many of our beloved dead lie buried. St. 

Jenkins Family Book. 37 

Francisville had been a place of some promise in the 
early days when an occasional steamboat found its way 
up that river, and when the building of a canal had 
been proposed and actually begun. But the canal 
died in its beginnings, business declined, and the peo- 
ple of St. Francisville devoted themselves chiefly to 
education, self culture and hospitality. 

There were no railroads in that country and few any- 
where in the ''fifties." The Mississippi and its tribu- 
taries were the great arteries of commerce. The 
steamboats of that day were gorgeous palaces. Their 
owners and officers wxre kings and princes in the 
monetary and business world. These mighty vessels 
as they ploughed the water, going up and down, could 
be distinctly seen, and their triumphant whistles heard 
at the Jenkins farm. When the water was high they 
towered up and stood out in the sun seem- 
ingly above the land. They were majestic; they w^ere 
grand ; they have gone. 

Along the main road the land was for the most part 
fenced and under cultivation but on the south there lay 
miles .and miles of open prairie. Here in those days 
was an abundant free range, affording pasturage for 
great numbers of cattle for more than half the year. 
This prairie also afforded the best of wild hay to be 
had by all comers for the harvesting. There were 
also bayous and sloughs and an occasional grove. It 
was a paradise for water fowl, and was frequented by 

38 Jenkins Family Book, 

thousands upon thousands of wild geese and ducks in 
their annual flights to the North and to the South. 
There were prairie chickens, too, in such numbers that 
their cooing in the spring time sounded a continual roar 
and their flight at times would almost darken the sun 
and shake the earth. It was a place to make glad the 
heart of the farmer as well as of the hunter and the

David Nelson Lapsley is shown in the following state- 
ment written by him, February 12, 1892 : 

*'My great-great-grandfather, Joseph Lapsley 
(then spelled L'Aspley) descended from French 
Huguenots, immigrated from North of Ireland to

a Lieutenant Captain in Col. Richard M. John- 
son's (the vice president) regiment of Kentucky 
volunteers. Was in the battle of Tippecanoe, and 
in several other engagements. He was a Presby- 
terian, and was a strong temperance man when 
nearly everybody used liquors. He paid about 
fifty thousand dollars security debts in his life- 
time, and died in moderate circumstances. He 
had twelve children of whom I was the youngest. 

My grandfather had two sons in the ministry 
Joseph B. and Robert A. and four grandsons,

and family moved from Kentucky to Clark Co., 
Mo. in 1836. 

My grandfather, William McKee, was born in 
the North of Ireland in 1724, and died October 
8th, 1 8 16. His father and grandfather moved to

Pennsylvania in 1725. My grandfather moved 
to Virginia about 1745, where he was married to 
Miriam Wear. He afterwards married a Mrs. 
Daviess who was the mother of Joseph Hamilton 
Daviess, a brilliant lawyer killed at the battle of

George Van Wagenen Jenkins, the only son, was a 
young man of much promise, a graduate of Parson's 
College, Fairfield, Iowa, and had already entered upon 
the study of medicine with his father. He was a born 
patriot, and when the tocsin of war with Spain sounded, 
he forsook the comforts of home, the pleasures of the 
'best social life, ana the studies of his chosen profession, 
and went forth at the call of his country. He enlisted in 
the Fifty-first Iowa, which became a part of General 
Lee's Corps in Florida. There he contracted the fever, 
his father went at once to him. He lived to reach his 
home, and there lingered a few days, and then, sur- 
rounded by those dear to him, he passed on — a beauti- 
ful young life, laid as a willing sacrifice upon the altar 
of his country.

I — Peter Gunnarson Rambo. 

Peter Gunnarson Rambo, born in Gottenberg, Swe- 
den, about 1605, died in Philadelphia, 1698. He came 
to America with Minuit in 1638, settled on the Dela- 
ware, was an important figure in the government of 
New Sweden until the conquest of that Province by 
the Dutch, was one of the two deputies sent to Peter 
Stuyvesant to answer his demand for surrender. He 
was also an official under the Dutch regime, and when 
the colony, along with New Amsterdam, passed to the 
Duke of York, he was a member of the Council of 
Captain Carr, the Governor. In 1674 he was a Justice 
of the Peace, and one of the first to sit in the historic 
Upland Court. He held other offices previous to, and 
subsequently under William Penn when he became the 
Proprietor of Pennsylvania. He was friendly to and 
popular with the Indians, and often acted as official 
interpreter between them and the English. He and 
his family were well known to William' Penn, and are 
referred to in Penn's correspondence in 1684 and later. 

His will is dated August 30, 1694, and was proved

in Philadelphia, November 19, 1698. The name of his 
wife is not known. He left a large number of descend- 
ants. 'Some of his children were : Gunnar, born 
about 1649; Peter, Andrew, John, born 1661, and 
Catherine, who married Peter Matson. He owned dif- 
ferent tracts of land at different periods. He was one 
of the founders, and a staunch supporter of Christian 
institutions along* the Delaware, and was for many 
years a warden of the celebrated Old Swede's Church 
in Philadelphia. The worship of this church was 
Episcopalian in form, and it later became one of the 
recognized members of the local diocese.

Bible names are exceedingly common among his 
descendants, and the Rambo name is closely interwoven 
with church history among that people through suc- 
ceeding generations. 

He had a sister living in Gottenberg m 1692 — 
(Annals of the Swedes, 40.) 

He antedated William Penn on the Delaware more 
than forty years. ^

den in 1649, married Anna, daughter of Peter Larson

Cock, died in 1724, buried in churchyard of Old 
Swede's Church. He was a large land owner, was a 
member of the first grand jury under William Penn's 
government, and in 1685 was a member of the Penn- 
sylvania Assemibly ; was on the first tax list of Philadel- 
phia. He removed to Upper Merion about 1712.

Anna, was born in Sweden in 161 1, came to New 
Sweden in 1641, (Pa. Mag. 3, 94, 464), died 1688. 
He w^as one of the foremost men in the settlement, 
held many offices, was a large land owner. He had 
six sons and as many daughters. Among these were 
the said Anna, Captain Lawrence, Brita, who married 
John Rambo, brother of Gunnar. The name was also 
spelled Kock, and among his very numerous descend- 
ants came to be anglicized into Cox. Pa. Mag., vol. 
3, p. 94; Plazard's Annals, p. 394. It is very evident 
from the history of that early period, that Peter Gun- 
narson Rambo and Peter Larson Cock were two of the 
principal and best men in the settlement, and hence

Matthias Rambo, born 1716 in Upper Merion, died 
October 10, 1782. His eldest son was Ezekiel. 

The foregoing line of descent is established by the 
recitals in a deed from Matthias Rambo and Jane, his 
wife, to his son, Ezekiel. This deed, dated January i, 
1773, is of record in Recorder's office for Montgomery 
County at Norristown, in Book 4, p. 202. It recites 
that Gunnar Rambo, grandfather of said Matthias, 
granted and sold to his son, Gabriel, ''father of said 
Matthias," certain lands, and that these are now in 
consideration of good willand parental affection con- 
veyed to their son, Ezekiel. 

V. — Ezekiel Rambo — Elizabeth Matson. 

Ezekiel Rambo, born in Upper Merion, married 
Elizabeth, daughter of Peter Matson. Ezekiel Rambo, 

Jenkins Family Book. 105 

like his ancestors, was a good, substantial, well-to-do 
citizen. The fact that land continued in the family 
through so many generations indicates their prudence 
and thrift. He was probably a member of the Baptist 
Church. His body was buried in the Baptist cemetery 
about ten miles from Christina, Pa. 

He was a soldier in the Revolution, a private in 
Captain Amos Sturges' Company, First Battalion Phil- 
adelphia Militia (I Pa. Associates and Militia, 719). 
Upper Merion was then in Philadelphia County. 
There were three other Rambos in that company. The 
Sturges family resided in the same neighborhood. 


John, born 1778. 

Joseph, born July, 21, 1779. 

Nathan, born 1781. 

Anna, born 1783.' 

Elizabeth, born 1785. 



Matson Ancestors. 

Peter Matson, father of Elizabeth, was of the well known 
family, which gave name to Matson's Ford across the Schuyl- 
kill. He died 1778, leaving eight children and a large estate. 
He was probably descended from Peter Matson, who married 
Catherine Rambo, (No. 1.) 

In the History of Montgomery County, by Theodore 
W. Bean, p. 126, it is stated : "Nils Matson was a 
native of Sweden and very probably the ancestor of 

106 Jenkins Family Book. 

John Matson, mentioned In the Hst in 1693. The lat- 
ter is represented at that date as having eleven persons 
in his family. One of the same name, who VN^as prob- 
ably a son, is represented as having moved into Upper 
Merion on a large tract of land adjoining Lower 
Merion. As the country became settled a ford was 
established here and thus received the name of Mat- 
son's Ford. During the Revolution the American 
army crossed several times at this place. It was then 
owned by Peter Matson, and on his death the land was 
divided among his sons, leaving each a farm." 

VI — Joseph Rambo — Hui-dah Morris. 

Joseph Rambo, born July 21, 1779, died July 23, 
1850, buried in Reading cemetery, married Huldah

were English Quakers (see IMorris ancestors). He 
was by trade a blacksmith. Children of this marriage :

Reading, Pa., most of his life, died in New York City, 
July 29, 1894, leaving many descendants. His daugh- 
ter, Huldah, married John F. Boyer of Reading, died 
November 10, 1895, leaving a large family of children 
and grandchildren. (2) William G., died, unmar- 
ried. (3) Elizabeth, born February 26, 1813.

As history has been so often silent, the following is 
appended concerning 


It has been said that geographers and historians, 
"while they had been very particular in detailing the 
circumstances connected with the arrival and settle- 
ment of the English on the James River, and of the 
Pilgrims in New England, had scarcely mentioned 
that there was ever such a colony as the Swedes on the 

There is so much truth in this charge, that people 
generally regard William Penn and his colonists as 
the first settlers of Pennsylvania. But the Swedes had 
been there for forty years before Penn came. Gus- 
tavus Adolphus, Sweden's greatest king, and one of 
the greatest of all timie and all nations, cherished the 
purpose and took measures to found a colony in the 

110 Jenkins Family Book. 

New World. Under his inspiration, a commercial 
company was incorporated in 1626, with its head- 
quarters at Gottenberg. Says Bancroft, the projectors 
declared: ''Other nations employed slaves in their 
colonies; and slaves cost a great deal, labor with reluc- 
tance, and soon perish from hard usage; the Swedish 
nation is laborious and intelligent, and surely we shall 
gain more by a free people with wives and children." 

Sweden was then one of the most powerful nations 
of Europe. Gustavus kept the enterprise well in mind 
and warmly commended it to the people of Germany 
only a few days before his death in the battle of Lut- 
zen, ''in which Protestantism won a most signal vic- 
tory, but its immortal leader was killed." Oxensteirn, 
the distinguished Chancellor of Adolphus, "took up 
the idea of the American colony, and continued to ear- 
nestly promote the enterprise, and to him is due the 
first permanent colonization on the banks of the Dela- 
w^are." The expedition thus encouraged, sailed from 
Gottenberg late in 1637, under Peter Minuit, and 
landed on the Delaware early in the spring of 1638. 
It comprised a clergyman and about fifty settlers. 
They purchased land from the Indians extending 
along the river as far up as the falls where Trenton 
is now situated. Thus New Sweden began. Others 
came in 1641, and from time to time, although the 
total number never reached more than one thousand. 
The settlement prospered under successive Swedish 
governors, the Indians were treated justly, and there

was continual peace. The colonists were sober, hon- 
est, industrious, religious. 

But this portion of America was claimed by 
the Dutch, and was known as the South River 
Country, in contradistinction to that of the 
North River at New Amisterdam. Sweden had 
been unfortunate in her European wars — Vv^as not able 
to defend the colony, and as a final result an expedi- 
tion came in overwhelming force under Peter Stuyve- 
sant, the Dutch Governor at the mouth of the Hudson, 
which forced the surrender of the Swedes in Septem- 
ber, 1655. This changed the government of the col- 
ony, but not its population. Again in 1664, when the 
English made conquest of New Amsterdam, this Swe- 
dish settlement passed under new sovereignty, and its 
people became the loyal and dutiful supporters of the 
Duke of York, and of Robert Carr, Governor of the 
South River Country. 

In 168 1 William Penn received his grant, and in 
1682 he made his first visit to Pennsylvania. Until 
that time there had been but few white people, except 
the Swedes, in all the Vv^ide expanse of his new province. 
After his coming, the Swedish settlers continued to be 
among the best of his colonists, and to merit his warm 
interesf and friendship. He wrote from London in 
1684 to the President of the Council : "Salute me to 
the Swedes, Captain Cock, Old Peter Cock, and 
Rambo * * -^ and their sons." * h< * ^'j i^iust 
need commend the Swede's respect to authority, and 
their kind behavior to the English. * * * As they

are a people proper and strong of body, so they have 
fine children, and almost every house full." * * * 
''I see few young men more sober and industrious." 

Thus, with this worthy, religious people for its first 
citizens, the great commonwealth of Pennsylvania was 
founded. A writer upon old Philadelphia in Harper's 
Monthly for April, 1876, says : ''There the Swan- 
sons, Keens, Bengstens, Kocks, and Rambos lived."_ 
''The Swedes and Friends did not like the Puritans 
shake the forests with their hymns of lofty cheer, nor 
din the ears of succeeding generations with tales of the 
persecutions from which they fled, but they quietly 
made their little village (Philadelphia) the only home 
of religious liberty then in the New V/orld." 

Bancroft estimated that the descendants of these 
original settlers amounted to about one in two hun- 
dred of the population of our country, and concerning 
the orisfinal colonv savs : 


''They cherished the calm earnestness of religious 
feeling; they revered the bonds of family, and the 
purity of morals ; their children under every disad- 
vantage of v.^ant of teachers and of Swedish books, 
were well instructed. A love for Sweden, their dear 
mother country and the abiding sentiment of loyalty 
towards its sovereign, continued to distinguish the lit- 
tle band; at Stockholm they remained for a century 
the objects of a disinterested and generous regard; 
aiiection united them in the New World, and a part of 

Jenkins Family Book. 113 

their descendants still preserve their altars and their 
dwellings around the graves of their fathers."

March 30, 1^3, there was dedicated in the city of 
Wilmington, Del., a granite monument to mark the. 
first permanent landing place on the Delaware of the 
Swedes who came with Minuit. The stone bears the 
following inscription : "This stone is a portion of the 
rocks on which the first Swedish colonists in America 
landed March 29, 1638. On this spot stood Fort 
Christiana. Here were held the first civil court, and 
in the chapel of the fort the Swedes celebrated the 
Christian v/orship in the New World. Erected by the 
Delaware Society of Colonial Dames March 29, 1903." 
The dedication services were held on the 30th because 
the 29th was Sunday. Full accounts were published 
in the Wilmington Morning News. This landing 
place is located in the city of Wilmington, and the pre- 
cise date of the great historic event was only recently 
discovered in an old document in Sweden. Here was 
the first beginning of the three States of Pennsylva- 
nia, Delaware and New Jersey. The scholarly ad- 
dress of the occasion was made by the Chief Justice 
of the Deleware Supreme Court, Charles B. Lore. 
Among other things, he said : 

"The first colonists in 1638 consisted almost entirely 

114 Jenkins Family Book. 

of Swedes and Finns, comprising farmers, traders, 
mechanics and soldiers." 

"The New World received no better people than the 
Swedes and Finns on the Delaware." 

"It is remarkable that during the whole period of 
the Swedish dominion * ^ * there is no evidence 
that a single human being lost his life in hostile con- 

"The conduct of the Swedish colonists toward the 
Indians bordering on their settlement, was not only 
consonant with the requirements of truth and justice, 
but with the dictates of a sound and enlightened policy 
as was found by happy experience. Their honesty, 
their kindness, their friendly deportment, disposed the 
Indians to peace. * * * The maintenance of such 
an intercourse so won their affection that they used to 
call the Swedes "their ow^n people." 

"Companius, speaking of the natives, says : 'They 
are very courteous in their behavior and fond of oblig- 
ing the Swedes. They take great pains to help them, 
and to prevent any harm happening to them. In this 
happ}^ state the colonists found a rich reward for their 
kind and nobe conduct toward the poor unlettered 
natives. Instead of a life of tenor and alarm — of war 
and all its horrors — the honest Swede could eat his 
bread in peace, and after the toils of the day, lay down 
his head in quietness, fearless of a midnight attack; 
undisturbed by dreams of the tomahawk and scalping 

Jenkins Family Book. 115 

**While in extent and population it was the least of 
any of the colonies; yet in the seope, liberality and 
humanity of its- design, New Sweden stood at the 
head of the American colonies." 

With an experience of forty years among white 
men of such honesty and uprightness, it can be well 
understood why William Penn found the Indians so 
kindly disposed when he arrived, and experienced no 
difficulty in continuing the same policy of justice and 
honor during his administration.

Note. — At the same time William Hamilton (No. i) 
was living in Salisbury township, another William 
Hamilton resided in the adjoining township of Leaoock. 
He died in 1782 and left a large family, among whom 
w^as a Col. James Hamilton, a Revolutionary soldier, 
and the founder of a distinguished family in South 
Carolina. It is supposed the two Williams were cou- 
sins, but the relationship has not yet been established. 

Jamies Hamilton, No. H, was a soldier in the Army 
of the Revolution, a private in Captain John Roland's

company of Militia, associated in Leacock Township, 
July 5th, 1775, and attached to Col. John Ferree's bat- 
talion. (See Everts & Pecks History of Lancaster 
County, Pa., p. 923.) 

Col. John Ferree commanded the loth Rifle Battalion 
(see same book, pp. 51 and 53 show active service of 
Captain Roland's Company). This battalion was in 
active service in 1775 and 1776. A portion was ordered 
to guard prisoners at Lancaster, another portion served 
on a tour of duty at Trenton and through New Jersey, 
Vol. X, Colonial Records, old edition, pp. 686, 690, 
692 and 699. 

Captain John Roland and James Hamilton at this 
time resided near Mill Creek in the western part of 
Leacock Township. 

In 1777 nine battalions were organized and embodied 
in Lancaster County. Every one of them performed a 
tour of duty which lasted about three months. They 
were not, however, called out at one and the same 
time. The ist, 2nd and 3rd were at Brandywine, 5th, 
6th and 7th were at Trenton and in New Jersey. Cols. 
Grubb's, Thomas', Edwards', Huber's, and Jenkins' 
Battalions were in active service. A portion went with 
Cols. Hartley and Hubley to Northern part of State 
and with Sullivan. (See Hartley & Hubley's Journal in 
Colonial Record). 

Captains Feathers and Isaac Adam's Companies went 
to Western part of State under Broadhead. (See Co-

I — Captain John Rush — Susanna Lucas. 

John Rush commanded a troop of horse in Crom- 
well's army. At the close of the war he married Su- 
sanna Lucas at Hoenton in Oxfordshire, June 8, 1648. 
She was born about 1627. He embraced the princi- 
ples of tho Quakers in 1660 and came to Pennsylvania 
in, or before, 1683, with seven children and several 
grandchildren. Settled at Byberry, now within the 
limits of Philadelphia. In 1691 he and his whole fam- 
ily became Keithians, and in 1697 most of them became 
Bapi:ists. He died at Byberry in f699. The record 
of his children in his own handwriting was in posses- 
sion of Dr. Benjamin Rush in 1800. His sword and 
watch are now in the old State House in Philadelphia.

Aurelia, also called Sarah Rush, married David Mer- 
edith, Jan. 3, 1704-5. They resided in Whiteland 
Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania, where 
David died in 1754. She died Jan. 14, 1770, aged 
about eighty-six, and leaving about one hundred 
descendants. There is much uncertainty as to the age 
of Sarah Meredith. The Pennsylvania Chronicle of 
Jan. 29, 1770, in announcing her death stated that she 
was "aged 90 years." An old family record states she 
was "the first female child of English parentage born, 
in Philadelphia." These statements may be erroneous..

was born in a little log house, where the city of Phil- 
adelphia now stands (her maiden name was Rush), 
and there she lived until she arrived to woman's state 
w^hen she was married to David Meredith, and soon 
after settled in the Great Valley, Chester County, about 
28 miles from Philadelphia^ then the western-most set- 
tlement in the Province, being six miles beyond any 
neighbors, except Indians, who were very numerous, 
kind and inoffensive. * * * She was mother of 11 
children, grandmother of 66 and great-grandmother of 
31, in all 108."

IV — Rebecca Meredith — ^John Jenkins. 

Rebecca Meredith, daughter of David, married about 
1730 John Jenkins of Windsor. He was -our great- 
great-grandfather. See his record, ante p. 16 Jen- 
kins Genealogy. Rebecca (Meredith) Jenkins is de- 
scribed in letters from her descendant, Mrs. Martha 
Jenkins Nevin, late of Lancaster, Pa., as a woman of 
high spirit, with all the graces and accomplishments 
that belonged to the typical colonial dame. She was 
a fine horse woman, who could mount her steed with- 
out assistance by a single spring from the ground. 
John Jenkins was a man of large means in those days, 
and she presided over his home with becoming hos- 
pitality and dignity. 

The Rush famil}^ has been one of the most promi- 

Jenkins Family Book. 133 

nent in the history of Philadelphia. Its most distin- 
guished member was Dr. Benjamin Rush, born 1741, 
died 18 13, physician, patriot and statesman. He was a 
signer of the Declaration of Independence, exceedingly 
active in public life, an ideal citizen, and withal achiev- 
ing and holding a place among the foremost doctors of 
medicine that America has ever produced. From him 
Rush Medical College of Chicago has its name. His 
relationship to our family is shown as follows :

Shippey-Batcheller note : The Batcheller family in 
its various branches is one of the most numerous and 
best known in Am.erica. The original ancestors came 
early and their descendants have followed along the 
track of the pioneers and among the pioneers across 
the continent. The Batcheller Genealogy published in 
1898 by Frederick Clifton Pierce is a large book of 
m_ore than six hundred pages. The following outline 
has been taken principally from that publication, and 
parties interested may there find more complete details 
of the history of these and other Batchellers.

Col. Simonds had a most interesting and active 
career, both civil and military. He was a soldier in 
colonial wars, and also in the army of the Revolution. 
When only 19 years old, in 1745 during the old French 
war, he enlisted and was one of the defenders of Fort 
Massachusetts. The garrison only numbered twenty- 
tvvo persons when the fort was attacked by an over- 
whelming French force sent from Crown Point. The 
place was captured and young Simonds taken prisoner 
and carried to Canada, where he was kept for a year. 
Williamstown, Mass., now covers the site of the old 
fort. Simonds afterwards, about 1750, purchased part 
of the ground included in the fortification and built his 
home and lived there the rest of his life, except when 
in active service during the Revolution. He com- 
manded a regiment of Berkshire MiHtia in the War 

Jenkins Family Book. 147 

for Independence and fought in the battle of Benning- 
ton and many others. 

After the war, during the remainder of his Hfe he 
was one of the most useful and influential citizens of

(See History of the Putnam Family, by Eben Put- 
nam, 1891.) 

The ''History of' the Putnam Family'' contains a 
history of the family in England and America, and a 
chart showing the actual and supposed ancestors of 
John Putnam of Salem, mow Danvers, M'ass. The 
line of probable ancestry is traced and the names of 
ancestors given for sixteen generations in England' to 
Simon de Puttenham, A. D. 1199. It is not proposed 
here to outline the details of this English ancestry. 
Parties interested are referred to the work mentioned. 
The history indicates that the family there was import- 
ant, worthy and usully in well-to-do circumstances. 
Some members attained knighthood. 

The American descendants of John Putnam have 
been very numerous. The most distinguished were 
Maj. General Israel Putnam and Maj. General Rufus 
Putnam of Revolutionary service. This brief sketch 
begins with 


I — John Putnam — Priscilla Gould. 

John Putnam of Ashton Abbotts, Bucks County, 
England; born there about 1580, died, Salem, Mass., 
Dec. 30, 1662, married Priscilla, probably Gould, in 
England. Emigrated and settled at Salem. The pre- 
cise year of his emigration is an unsettled point. In 
the Putnam family history, it is said that tradition is 
responsible for the date, 1634. The author of that 
work cites a record of land exchanged in 1641 between 

168 Jenkins Family Book. 

John Putnam and one Skeltons, which described one 
hundred acres as having been "granted to said John 
Putnam formerly." That word formerly may cover 
a good many years. 

In the history of Danvers, by Hansen, published 
in 1848, he says : "John Putnam came from Bucking- 
hamshire, England, in 1629 with his three sons and 
owned a large portion of North Danvers" — says he 
oiwned Wenham woods, and mentions one Ray as own- 
ing land in 1634 near John Putnam. He also gives 
the inference that in 1632 he was one of the retainers 
of Gov. Endicott. Endicott came to Salem in 1628. 
Other emigrants came the next year, and it is not 
improbable that John Putnam and his family were 
among them. 

Children of John and Priscilla Putnam. 

Elizabeth, Thomas, Nathaniel, Sara, Phebe and John, all 
born in England before 1627.

born in England, baptized Aug. 30, 1629, died June 
24, 1688. They were members of the church in Salem, 
The Putnams were usually active Christians. He was

Joseph Logan, the first known American ancestor, 
is located as a resident of Birmingham Township, 
Chester County, Pennsylvania, in 1749. He was then 
on the tax list. He may have been there sometime 
before, or have lived previously in New Castle County, 
now in the state of Delaware. His father was prob- 
ably the emigrant, but his name and time of arrival 
have not been discovered. Originally Scotch, always 
Protestant, the Logan ancestors passed over into Ire- 
land, and later fell in with the Scotch-Irish emigra- 
tion, which added so much to the robust and worthy 
citizenship of Pennsylvania.

Logan-Harry Note. 
Mr. Gilbert Cope of West Chester, Pennsylvania, 

Jenkins Family Book. 201 

has written the genealogy of Mary Harry. The out- 
line is as follows : 

I — Hugh Harris, or Harry — ^Elizabeth Brinton, 

n — Hugh Harry — Elizabeth Wickersham. 

in — Benjamin Harry — Mary Cloud. 

IV — ^Mary Harry — Joseph Logan. No. II. above. 

I insert memoranda from Mr. Cope, as follows: 

Among the passengers on the "Vine of Liverpool'/'" 
which arrived at Philadelphia, 7 mo. 17, 1684, were 
''From Macchinleth in Montgomeryshire, Hugh Har- 
ris and Daniel Harris." 

Hugh Harris and Elizabeth Brinton, daughter of 
William and Ann Brinton, of Birmingham, declared 
their intentions of marriage at Chichester Meeting ist 
mo. 1st, 1685-6, and again 2d mo. 12th, 1686, and were 
doubtless married soon after the last date. He was a 
weaver and settled in Birmingham Township, Chester 
County, on land coonveyed to him by his father-in-law, 
where he died in 1708. 

The will of Hugh Harris, of "Brumingham, wever, 
being sick," &c., was dated i mo. 2^, 1708, and proven 
Sept. 28, 1708. He directed his wife and executrix, 
Elizabeth Harris, to sell the plantation and pay £5 to 
each of the children when of age. To his son Evan 
he gave the "waving Loom and Gares thereunto be- 

^03 Jenkins Family Book. 

longing." His children as named were Evan, Wil- 
liam, Hugh, John, Elizabeth, Ann, Jane, Lois and 

It is presumed that Hugh Harris, or Harry, as the 
name has been written by later generations, was a 
follower of George Keith, who created a schism in the 
Society of Friends about 1692, but some of the chil- 
dren afterward joined with Friends. 

Hugh Harry of Kennet Township, Chester County, 
and Elizabeth Wickersham, of the same place, were 
married i mo. 4, 1730, at Kennet Meeting. By deed 
of April 10, 1728, Hugh Harry, of Kennet, purchased 
from Joseph Taylor 150 acres of land in what was then 
Kennet, afterward Pennsbury and now Pocopson 
Township, for £75. 

The will of Hugh Harry, of Kennet, is dated 3 mo. 
29, 1760, and proven June 24, 1760. After providing 
for Elizabeth his wife he gives to son James 10 acres 
of land to be surveyed off the plantation ; to daughter 
Elizabeth Harry £20 **at her first marriage ;" to sons 
Stephen, Jesse, Benjamin, Nathan and Thomas £5 
each. The three younger children, Jesse, Benjamin and 
Nathan to be put to trades at 16. Residue of estate, 
real and personal, to son Evan who was also executor. 

Benjamin Harry and wife, Mary (Cloud), were dis- 
owned by Kennet Monthly Meeting of Friends, in 
1768, for marriage by a "priest" as they termed min- 
isters of other denominations. 

Jenkins Family Book. 203 

They had three children, Stephen, Jesse and Mary, 
of whom the last named married Joseph Logan. 

The genealogy of the Bailey family shows the Cloud- 
Baily lines as follows : 

I — Joel Baily — x\nn Short, married in 1687. 

II — Jeremiah Cloud — Ann Baily. 

Ill — William Cloud — Mary Pierce. 

IV — ^Mary Cloui> — ^Benjamin Harry, parents of 
Mary, who married Joseph Logan 11. 

Ill — William Logan — Hannah Pyle. 

William Logan,first son of Joseph and Mary (Harry) 
Logan, was born at East Fallowfield, Chester Coun- 
ty, January 4, 1788, died October 26, 1842. He mar- 
ried Hannah, daughter of Abner and Mary Pyle. She 
was born October 28, 1786. They resided near Coates- 
ville in Chester County, about three miles from 
Chadd's Ford, and nine miles from West Chester.

Mary Louisa Logan married, July i6, 1896, Howard 
T. McCrery. They live at Collamer, Pennsylvania, 
and have one child, Elizabeth Irene McCrery. 

Logan-Pyle Note. 

Mr. Gilbert Cope, before quoted, writes : 

"Robert, Nicholas and Ralph Pyle, or Pile as some 
of them wrote it, came from Wiltshire, England, I 
believe in 1683. They were doubtless sons of Robert 
Pyle of Stanton Barnard in Wilts. Robert was mar- 
ried in England but Nicholas married here. These 
two were Friends while Ralph was an Episcopalian, 
and all were at times members of the Provincial As- 
sembly. Ralph settled in Concord Township, Chester 
(now Delaware) County and died in 1741, leaving a 
son Wdlliam. The latter married Betty Chads and 
died in Birmingham Township, June i, 1746, leaving 
children, Ralph, Joseph, John, William, Elinor, Mary 
and Sarah. Of these Joseph inherited 350 acres of 
land in West Marlborough, married Ruth Hayes and 
died in 1793, leaving children, Abner, Alice, Betty, 
Ruth, Mary, Jacob, Jane, Sarah and Joseph. Abner 
died July, 1793, a few months after his father, leav-

ing widow Mary and children, Jehu, Hannah, Eli, 
Jonathan and Abner. The records of Orphans' Court 
represent that both Abner and his father were of East 
Marlborough, though Hannah Logan is said to have 
been born in West Marlborough." 

IV — William Pyle Logan — Sarah Jane McCombs. 

William Pye Logan, first son of William and Han- 
nah (Pyle) Logan, was born at East Fallowfield, Ches- 
ter County, Pennsylvania, August 27, 1822, and died 
in 1889. He married, March 20, 1845, ^^ her father's
