As this book is a book on family history, and involves Information 
on many people, It Is obvious that vrlthout the assistance of many 
people, the task would have been impossible. Much of the material was 
gleaned from books, periodicals, letters, and from other sources which 
written, or typed, in years past. For one person to ro to basic 
documents and prepare a book of this size would be a task that could 
notbe accomplished in a lifetime. Also, I have written many letters 
asking for information. For all those who sent the requested 
information I do offer my heart felt thanks. 

Some have helped me by going beyond the point of supplying 
Information. Some have spent hours, while others have spent days, 
weeks, or months securing information which is in this book. 

J. Harrison Harding, Sr. spent several years finding out about his 
Harrison. Harding, Cosby and other ancestors. The wealth of information 
which he found, is in the Cosby section of the book. Ve spent some time 
together, and as we talked, his enthusiasm just overflowed as he talked 
of what he had discovered! 

Elsie Knabe gave me much Information about the Knabe family and 
their relations. 

Pattie Grady shared her information about the Wilkinson family that 
she had accumulated, plus what had been given her from Col. and Mrs. 
Eanes. 

Ruth R. Cosby was gracious and gave me information about the Cosby 
family. 

James V. Clark has been collecting information for a number of years 
on the Clark (Clarke) family, and his contribution Is appreciated. 

The cover was designed and prepared by Judith Lynne Bradley. 

Many others supplied information which is acknowledged throughout 
the book. 



About 1980, some family conversations seemed to center on family 
ancestors. It was fascinatinK to hear how much information could be 
remembered about f^reat grandparents, going back to the early parts of 
the 19th century. Ve all seemed fascinated about the old times, and 
going back to the civil war, and even before, seemed so easy. Of 
course, most persons, and things discussed were rather sketchy, and a 
lot of names, dates, and events had been forgotten. 

Mrs. Geneva Clarke Guss remembered her early childhood in the Ridge 
area of Henrico County, her family moving to Amelia County, when but a 
teenager, and how their family life changed, especially with the early 
death of her father, "Dave" Clarke (the Clarke family always spelled 
their name with an e! ) "Dave" had been a stonecutter, and one of his 
Jobs was on the Richmond City Hall, From his occupation he suffered the 
stone cutter's disease. Her grandfather John Wesley Clarke had moved to 
Richmond, from Williamsburg a long time before she was born, but she 
knew that he had an accident in the James River and had drowned. Her 
grandmother Clarke, who died as a young woman in Williamsburg, was, 
before her marriage, a Ball. One of her older brothers had an accident 
on the RFSiP Railroad, as a teenager, and he was killed Instantly. 

Her mother was Annie Jackson Wilkinson, born in Powhatan County, but 
like many others, her father, a Confederate soldier, for a livelihood 
had to move to Richmond to survive. The Wilkinson home, in Powhatan 
County, was known as the "Milky Way Plantation". The fact that the name 
has not survived has no bearing on how great that plantation was. 

James "Jim" Corbett Guss could look back on his family life and tell 
how his grandfather John Guss had bought a farm in Powhatan County, 
sight unseen from a friend, while living in Wood County, Ohio, near 
Toledo, Ohio. They moved here, puting their belongings in a wagon, and 
managed to move 550 or so miles by "horsepower". They might have 
expected to find the old southern plantation, but instead they found red 
clay to cultivate, and a hard post Civil War economy to face. When his 
father died in 1912, "Jim", his mother, and sisters (one not yet born; 
times were really hard. 

With this. Just as starters, the road to searching for the unknown 
ancestors and the unknown information, seemed such a real challenge, and 
source of enjoyment. It would be a great understatment, to say that the 
search has been enjoyable. I hope this book will bring you a little bit 
of the Joy I have experienced in the research and writing of this book.

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK 

As ttie title of this book. MY WIFE'S FAMILY, would su;?gest, the 
purpose is to tell about her family, and her ancestors. Her ancestral 
chart is listed on pages 10-a through 16c, 

The amount of information about each ancestor varies, but the 
location of this information is listed under the Table of Contents. 

A few abbreviations are listed in the family trees. These are b- 
born, d-died, m-married, dau-daughter , bur-buried, bapt-baptized, <1)- 
flrst spouse, <2) second spouse, c-circa, and div-dlvorced. In addition 
months and states are abbreviated. 

An attempt has been made in this book to list all members of 
families, at least until two families merge, by marriage, into one new 
family. Where family histories have been published, the names of such 
books are listed. The numbering system, used in this book, is not a 
unique one, and a number of books on family histories employ the same 
system. 

The purpose of the system is to assign a number to each person in a 
family. The first (single) digit identifies the earliest known person, 
or persons, in a family history, with number 1 being the oldest known 
ancestor, and the other single digits being brothers or sisters oi #1 . 
For families with 10 or more children, X will be the tenth person. 
Starting with the 11th person, the alphabet will be used starting with A 
as the 11th person, B as the 12th person, etc. 

The children of each person of the first column, will be listed in 
like manner in the second column; so the first child of the first 
ancestor will be 11. The first child of 11 will be 111 (grandchild of 
#1). The second child would be 112, etc. 

An example of the way the system works may be shown by looking up 
the ancestors of Dennis Collins (Wilkinson family): 

Dennis Collins (father would be 131183324) 
Clifford E. Collins (.mother would be 1318332) 
Iva Estelle Wilkinson (father would be 131833) 
Beverly Ludwell Wilkinson <.father would be 13183) 
Beverly Randolph Wilkinson (father would be 1318) 
William H. Wilkinson (father would be 131) 
Gallio Wilkinson (father would be 13) 
Thomas W. Wilkinson (.father would be 1) 
Nicholas Wilkinson 

The 6th great grandfather of Dennis Collins is Nicholas Wilkinson! 
The ancestry of any other name can be traced in like manner.

<3h:a.rle:s ous; 



Charles Guss was born in Baden, Germany in 1732. Vhen he was 18 years 
of age, in 1750, he immigrated to Trappe, Pennsylvania. By education and 
training he was a teacher and a scrivener. On July 12th, 1761 he married 
Mary Shunk, who was born on May 4, 1741 and they lived on French Creek, 
Chester County, Pennsylvania. According to their tombstones, Charles died 
on September 1, 1795 and Mary died on April 30, 1821. However, the 
inventory of his estate was dated 30 August 1794, at which time he was 
termed "deceased" and his will was dated 9 August 1794, so he must have died 
between those two dates. Mary was the daughter of Simon Shunk and Anna 
Magdalena Shymer. 

As was common with the names of many persons of German origin, Charles 
Guss and his descendents had their last name spelled in different ways. 
Guss has been written Gass, Gos, Goss, Guess, Gus and Gust. One member of 
the Gust family was stopped in his research of the family name, as he ran 
into the name Guss and knew that that was not his family! 

An early taz record in Pikeland Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania 
in 1765 listed Charles as being a school master and owning one cow. The 
same year, Pastor Handschuch, in his report to the Lutheran synod said, "In 
Vincent township there is a good school, an excellent teacher, and about 
sixty scholars". The "Lutheran Observer" of 17 October 1884, also stated, 
"In those early days in the Lutheran Church, the school went hand in hand 
with the church, and In accord with the custom of that age, when the 
schoolmaster stood next to the minister, Charles Guss often officiated at 
religious meetings in the absence of the preacher..." Vhile no record has 
been found showing which church Charles attended it is thought that he 
substituted at Augustus Lutheren Church in Trappe, Upper Providence 
Township, Montgomery Co, as it appears to be less than five miles from where 
Charles lived. 

On 30 September 1765, Charles Guss, Upper Hanover Twp. , Philadelphia 
Co., was naturalized under Act of 13 George II, "giving those qualified by 
seven years residence in any colony, with a few limitations, the rights of 
natural-born subjects of Great Britain upon their taking the prescribed 
oaths before the Chief Judge or other Judge of the colony wherein they had 
resided" 

The following is the will of Charles Guss: 

"In the name of God Amen. This 9th day of August in the year of our 
Lord 1794 I Charles Guss of the Township of Vincent, County of Chester and 
State of Pennsyia. Husbandman being Sick of body but of Sound mind and

Jno. Hannum Regr. 

The following were the children of Charles Guss and Mary Shunk: 

1. Mary Magdalain Guss born 29 March 1762 married Yeost Smith 

2. Charles Guss, (Jr. ) born 3 January 1765 married Martha Limburg 

3. Rachel Guss born 29 March 1767 married Conrad Holman 

4. Catharine Guss born 30 January 1770 married Corl 

5. Elizabeth Guss born 30 January 1770 never married 

6. Simeon Guss born 15 Feb 1773 married Barbara Knerr 

7. Salome Guss born 10 September 1777 married Conrad Holman 



Charles Guss (Jr. ) was born 3 January 1765 probably in Vincent Town- 
ship, Chester County, Pennsylvania. The date is unknown but he married 
Martha Limburg. Possibly the name of Limburg had other spellings, and 
possibly George Limbert, who arrived on the ship Chesterfield 2 September 
1749 in Philadelphia was her father or other relative. 

Charles lived with his great grandfather, Conrad Shymer, and great 
grandmother, Anna Margareta Scheimer, as a boy, at least until 1780, when 
his great grandfather died. Conrad Shymer 's will provided that should 
Charles stay with his great grandmother until her death that he would 
inherit their place and moveable assets. By 1786 he had moved to Windsor 
Township in Berks County, paying taxes, which record showed that he was 
married at the time. In 1800 he was living in Tulpehocken Township, Berks 
County. 

Charles had moved to the borough of Hamburg, where he was listed in 
both the 1810 and 1820 census. In 1830 Charles was listed as a mason and a 
citizen of Hamburg, Pennsylvania, in a Berks County history. Charles and 
Martha's children Samuel, John, Casper, Lewis, Christiana and Sophia 
Catharine are listed as members of the Lebanon Evangelical Lutheran Church, 
later known as St. Paul's (Smoke) Union Church, Windsor Township, Berks 
County, Pennsylvania, The church record list Sophia Gossin, Johannes Goss, 
Catharine Gossler, Kasper Goss and Christina Gass so we see some of the 
variant spellings of Guss in one church's record. In the early 1830' s 
Charles moved to Schylkill County, where he died near Pine Grove. 

Son John Guss moved to Louisiana, Casper moved to Sandusky County, 
Ohio; Lewis moved to Winimac, Pulaski County, Indiana, and Samuel moved to 
Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. 

Samuel Guss was buried in Kimmel's Churchyard, East Brunswick Township, 
Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. His daughter Elmira married William F. 
Voute and moved to Chicago, Illinois. His son Wallace was born 28 January 
1843 in Pine Grove, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania and was a very prominent 
citizen, and in 1872 was elected to the Pennsylvania General Assembly. 

It is believed that at least some of the daughters moved to the 
counties of Juniata and Susquehanna in Pennsylvania

Casper Guss, the son of Charles Guss (Jr. ) was born cl796 in Berks 
County, Pennsylvania and married Mary Magdaiena Seltzer, the daughter of 
John Seltzer, was born cl793 in Windsor Township, Berks County, Pennsylvan- 
ia. In 1834 they moved from Windsor Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania 
to Sandusky County, Ohio. At that time all transportation in this section 
of the country was done by wagon, and it is quite probable that the 
wagon was the family home until a log caoin could be erected in the forest 
where the new homo: was located. Mr. Guss was one of the hardy pioneers of 
Sandusky County and he labored assiduously in the clearing and development 
of his farm. He was a hatter by trade, but gave his attention to agricul- 
tural affairs in his Ohio home. Recreational activities were limited but, 
one activity he enjoyed, which also supplied food, was fishing! 

After moving to Ohio, Casper Guss bought the following land recorded in 
deed book volume G, pages 542 and 543, of Sandusky County, Ohio; 

"This Indenture made this first day of October, in the year of our Lord

James Corbett Guss, the son of George Montgomery Guss and Lena A. Knabe 
was born 1 April 1891 Powhatan County, Virginia, in the log cabin on the 
Guss estate which his grandfather, John Guss, had purchased. On 12 February 
1920 he married Geneva May Clarke, the daughter of Octavious Clarke and 
Annie Jackson Wilkinson, who was born 5 September 1899 in Henrico County, 
Virginia. The whole family farmed and their cash crop was tobacco. In 1924 
he was hired by the Southern Railroad and he worked for them until 1940 or 
1941. Most of the time he boarded in Richmond, so he was separated from the 
family a lot of the time, except for weekends. Vhat was left over, after 
paying for room and board, helped the family at home. During the World War 
II years, he worked part time, locally, at Wagner's stave mill. 

While still a boy, his father cut enough oak timber off the farm to 
build a home for them. He contracted Chesley Dorsett, a local builder, to 
build the home. The Guss family moved into the new house about 1905. His 
son, James Guss, Jr. and wife Charlene, remodeled the house in the 1970' s, 
where they now live. 

After the death of George Montgomery Guss, times were very hard for the 
family. John Guss and his wife, Lena, helped the family by taking Clara 
into their home to raise; and so doing, filled some of the loneliness of 
their lives as they were childless. 

About 1924 James had the log cabin remodeled and added a kitchen onto 
the back, and frame siding was added to the home. The family soon moved 
back into the "new" home. Jane had her hands full taking care of the 
children, growing her garden, and milking the family cow. They lived in the 
house until 1937, when a neighbor, who worked in New York, offered them his 
home, in which to live, and the farm for their use. They lived there until 
1951, when the neighbor sold the farm and they then had to find another 
home. 

They soon found a farm in Henrico County about 2 miles west of Laurel 
on the southside of Hungary Road. Jane was so happy to have a home of her 
own. The three story frame house, with an English basement, might have been 
built a hundred years before, but it had a lot of space, and at one time or 
another all the children, and most of the grandchildren, came back home and 
lived tor a while. In the 1970' s James health became a source of real 
concern, and after an operation, he lived for about 2 years, before dying on 
21 May 1977, at St. Lukes Hospital, Parham Road, Henrico County. James was 
buried in the Genito Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Powhatan, Virginia. 

When sister Annie was going to business school in Richmond, she met 
Henry West, a career army soldier, who bacame her husband. Sisters "Lizzie" 
and Kate moved to Richmond in 1940, where they still live. Sadie continued 
to live on the home place until her death in 1948. Mother Lena continued to 
live in the home that she and her husband George had built until 1954, when 
it was necessary for her to have some assistance. She moved to Richmond and 
lived with daughters Lizzie and Kate until her death in 1957

HAZEL ]yiAY OUSS 

Hazel Hay Guss vfas born 14 September 1920 on the Guss estate, the first 
child of James Corbett Guss and Geneva May Clarke. She was born prematurely 
and only weighed about one and a half pounds. Hardly anyone, including the 
family doctor, Dr. Burton, thought it possible that she would survive. 
However, at her first birthday she weighed twelve pounds. 

In 1926 she started to school at the Genito School, which she attended 
for 3 years. Before the time of school buses, it was necessary for her to 
walk to school, much of the winter starting for school before the sun rose, 
a distance of three or four miles! The roads during the winter could be 
muddy and rutted, or covered with ice, or frozen water. It was sure quite a 
lot different from todays modern roads and heated and air conditioned buses! 
In 1929 she attended another school, the Clayville School, which was a 
little closer, and she could walk down a comparatively good rail road track 
to the school. This school she attended until 1932, when she was 
transferred to the beautiful brick school at Powhatan Court House, which 
accomodated the upper grades for the entire County of Powhatan. Vhile In 
high school she played on the girls varsity high school basketball team. 
She was graduated from Powhatan High School in the class of 1939. 

Not long after her graduation from school, since there were no 
opportunities of employment in Powhatan County, she went to Richmond, and 
secured employment in the Crawford Manufacturing Company. She lived in a 
boarding house about 18 blocks from where she worked, and most of the time 
she walked to and from work to save the seven cents it cost to ride on the 
street car. Later her sister Blanche and then aunts Lizzie and Kate also 
moved to Richmond and worked at Crawford Manufacturing Company. 

The company was not always flourishing with work, but the beginning of 
Vorld Var II brought a flood of work, and full time work was available for 
all employees, and new labor was always sought. The work was piece work, 
which enabled the hard worker to make more money. 

Hazel like so many other young women of the day, joined the USD, which 
took time. She attended some functions, and one of these was a trip to the 
City of Petersburg in the fall of 1944. There she met a soldier by the name 
of Noah "Harry" Bradley, who was in the Signal Corps, stationed at Camp 
Pickett, Virginia. Shortly, thereafter, he was transferred to Ft. Bragg, 
North Carolina. Later, he was transferred, on detached service, to Fort 
Leonard Vood in Missouri. After his return, his outfit was sent to Okinawa, 
and after the war to Korea. During all this time, the letters went back and 
forth between the two, and on March 2, 1946 they were united in marriage at 
the Methodist Church parsonage in Chester, Virginia. 

By June 1946 Hazel and Harry had moved to Bowling Green, Ohio where he 
attended Bowling Green State University in business administration. Both of 
them also worked for Thomas Ohns in the restaurant business. They bought a 
home, added a couple of rooms to the rear of the house and had a half dozen 
college students living in their home. They were busy. 

After college they moved to Cairo, a little town north of Lima, Ohio 
and lived with Harry's parents for a while, while he was employed by 

13 



Vestlnghouse Corporation. On a visit to Virginia, they found out about a 
restaurant, in Powhatan County, that they could rent, so the next move was 
back to Virginia, where Hazel, Harry, and Hazel's brother, James and his 
wife, Charlene, went into partnership in the operation of The Sandwich Shop 
at Flat Rock, Virginia. After about a year, James went to work as a 
mechanic, and Harry went to work for the Continental Life Insurance Company. 
Both families had the births of their first children, with Douglas Bradley, 
and Michael Guss making their parents happy. 

Hazel and Harry were the parents of the following; 

1. Harry Douglas Bradley born 4 November 1947 Stuart Circle Hospital, 

Richmond, Virginia 

2. Joseph Daniel Bradley born 1 February 1949 Retreat Hospital, 

Richmond, Virginia 

3. Soah Harrison Bradley, III born 13 June 1957 Richmond Memorial 

Hospital, Richmond, Virginia

Seltzer, was born 16 September 1814 in Hamburg, Berks County, 
Pennsylvania. He did 26 April 1889 in Elmore, OMo and was buried at the 
Union (Guss) Cemetery. He married on 23 March 1848 Eliza Ann Sarnes, the 
daughter of William & Mary Sarnes, who was born on 17 August 1324 in 
Pickaway County, Ohio and died on 12 August 1906 in Elmore, Ohio and 
buried next to her husband. 

He lived in Pennsylvania until 1831 when his father moved, with the 
entire family, to lower Sandusky County. For some years he lived and 
farmed on Volt Creek some miles south of Fremont and moved to Elmore in 
1860. 

The Guss Cemetery Association was formed in 1871, on land purchased 
originally from Alexander Guss, at a meeting held in the office of John 
Jenney. Six trustees and a clerk were elected. Every person purchasing a 
lot would become a member of the association. The lots were laid out 20 
feet square and were to bring $10.00 each when sold. A portion oi the 
ground was sold to the township trustees in 1372 "consisting of three 
tiers of lots the entire length of the cemetery, for which they paid 
$280." These lots were to be known as "potter's field." An ordinance was 
passed in 1896 changing the name to Union CeiKtery. 

In the Fremont Journal, 3 May 1889, the following death notice was 
written: "Thursday morning about seven o'clock Alexander Gust an old 
resident of Elmore, was found dead in his barn yard. Mr. Gust was feeding 
his stock when he suffered a stroke of heart disease, and died instantly. 
Mr. Gust was well known and highly respected, and is a brother of George 
Gust of this city. The deceased was 73 years old and leaves a wife, two 
sons and two daughters. 

Mr. Gust and daughter, of this city went to Elmore last night to 
attend the funeral."

FRAHK A. GUSS #12413 

The following is the obituary account published in the Fremont Daily 
Messenger, January 28, 1908: 

"Frank Guss Dropped Dead in His Chair 

Frank A. Guss, one of the best known and most popular of the 
citizens of Elmore, and of Ottawa county, died in Fremont Monday evening 
at the home of his cousin, Ralph L. Gust on Napoleon street. The death 
was a very sudden one and was a sad surprise to the relatives, although 
the deceased had not been in good health for some time. He had been 
suffering from a cancer of the tongue which caused him to have 
hemorrhages. He had been doctoring with Dr. Reiff of this city for some 
time and Monday came to Fremont to consult him. In the afternoon, Mrs. 
Gust and her sister. Miss Maud Tuttle, of Clyde, went down town, Frank 
Guss remaining at the house with Grant Smith and "Brownie" Ellison. Mr. 
Smith had been partially taking care of him and assisting him when the 
severe attacks of pain would seize him. About 5 o'clock Mr. Guss went out 
for a short walk returning in about ten minutes. He removed his overcoat 
and rubbers and sat down in an easy chair to rest. As he sat down he 
threw his head back and instantly became motionless. 

Ellison and Mr. Smith hurried to his side and found him dead. The 
family was informed as soon as possible. His relatives were greatly 
shocked to hear the news. The dead man was an Odd Fellow and a Mason and 
a prominent member ot the Elmore lodges. This morning three members of 
the mason order, Mr. Elisha Sarns, an uncle of his: Henry Puffenpaugh, and 



Mr. Burnham, of Elmore came to Fremont and carried the remains to Elmore, 
where the deceased will be buried with service of the Kasonic order. 

Frank Guss had many friends. His was a whole souled genial 
personality which readily attracted friends. Everybody in Ottawa county 
knew him and liked him. He gained considerable local fame as an 
auctioneer at horse and cattle sales and always kept the crowd in a good 
humor while making profitable and rapid sales. He was an expert horseman 
and made buying and selling horses a profession. 

He has always made Elmore his home. He was born there about 1860. 
He attended the Elmore public schools and broadened his education with 
considerable travel. He often visited the larger eastern cities, his 
profession taking him around the country in various localities. He was a 
good Democrat and served several times as central committeeman. His 
mother and father are both dead and the later years of his life he spent 
in batchelor apartments which he rented in Elmore. His relatives in 
Fremont include Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Gust, Mr. and Mrs. George Gust and 
Frank Stahl . " 



ELIZABETH KATHERINE GUSS #12414 

Elizabeth Katherine Guss married Frenk E. Stahl. The following is 
the obituary account which appeared in the Fremont Daily News, November 
29, 1913: 

"OLDEST ODD FELLOW 
WAS CHRISTIAN STAHL WHO DIED FRIDAY AT THE AGE OF 86 

Funeral of Prominent Pioneer Will Be Private Owing To Illness of His Aged 
Wife - Was the Youngest in Family and Last to Die 

The funeral of the late Christian Stahl, whose death took place 
Friday afternoon at his home on Croghan Street, will be held Monday 
afternoon at 2 o'clock at the late residence. Owing to the serious 
illness of Mrs. Stahl who is in a serious condition, the luneral services 
will be private. The Odd Fellows will have charge of the funeral services 
at the grave in Oakwood cemetery. Those wishing to view the remains may 
do so between the hours of 2 and 4 o'clock Sunday afternoon. 

Christian Stahl was the youngest of a family of four brothers and 
one sister, who with their parents in 1832, crossed the Atlantic in fifty- 
four days in a sailing ship, and was the last member oi his family to die. 
Mr. Stahl was born on March 7, 1827, at Guerstheim, in the province of 
Alsace, France, and upon arrival in America with his parents, lived for 
several years at Tonawanda, near Buffalo, and then came to Ruggles Beach, 
where he lived until 1842, at which time he came to Sandusky county, in 
which county he has since claimed his home. 

In 1843 he learned the cooper's trade from his brothers, John C. and 
Philip Stahl, and became and was known as one oi the best tight barrel 

33 



coopers then working at the trade. After learning his trade he travelled 
extensively throughout the United States, working at his trade in making 
molasses barrels at New Orleans and along the Mississippi river in the 
winter time and fish barrels at Mackinac in the summer time. 

In 1858 he was married to Miss Julia Tyler, and to them was (sic) 
born five children, four of whom survive their father and are living in 
the city of Fremont, namely; Cora A., Frank E. , Nettie Margaret, and 
Harriet M. , one son, Harry H. having died in 1888. He is also survived by 
his three grandchildren: Marguerite, Robert and Dorothea, children of his 
son, Frank E. , of which grandchildren he was very fond. 

After Mr. Stahl's marriage, he settled on his farm two miles 
southeast of Fremont, where he resided until 1882, when he removed to 
Fremont and at once, with his son, Frank E. Stahl, became actively engaged 
in the buying and shipping of hay, grain and farm produce, in which 
business he was very successful. He retired from business several years 
ago, and spent the balance of his life in the enjoyment of his family 
circle and many friends. 

In early life Mr. Stahl became affiliated with Croghan Lodge, No. 
77, I. 0. 0. F. , and after the death of C. R. McCulloch, was the oldest 
living member of the Odd Fellows fraternity in this city, both in age and 
in years of membership, residing in Sandusky county. In politics, Mr. 
Stahl was an ardent Republican and thoroughly believed in the principles 
of the Republican party and was steadfast and unswerving from his party's 
principles and platform. 

Mr. Stahl's father, after fourteen years service in the French army, 
and after the fall of Napoleon at Waterloo and the accession of Louis 
Philip to the throne, emigrated to the United States with his family in 
order to prevent any of his four sons from serving in the army under a 
Bourbon king; and these marked characteristics of the father of fidelity 
to principles, was always strongly marked and noticeable in the subject of 
this sketch." 



CHARLES GUSS #12421 

Charles Guss, the son of John Guss and Angelina Rollins, was born 12 
August 1844 in Ballvllle Township, Sandusky, Ohio and died on 7 March 1925 
in Michigan. On 14 March 1872 in Whitley County, Indiana he married Hulda 
L. Munger who was born 1843 and died 10 March 1911. Both were buried in 
the Medina Cemetery 

Charles Guss was a Union Civil War veteran, a private in Co. F. , 8th 
Regiment of Ohio Volunteer Infantry. He volunteered at Fremont the 7th 
day of June 1861, for the term of three years and was honorably discharged 
at Camp near Harrisons Landing, Virginia on the 24th day of July 1862. 

"That while in mid service in the line of his duty at Woodstock in 
the state of Virginia, on the 1st day of April 1862 he was attacked by 
brain fever produced by exposure while on duty and removed to Hospital at 

34 



Strasburg, Virginia and remained there nearly four months. That during 
the attack oi this fever, he became deaf and lost the entire use of his 
hearing, and still remains deaf and entirely unable to hear." Information

ELLIS L. GUSS #124212 

The following obituary, from an unknown newspaper, gives the account 
of death of Ellis L. Guss: 

"DEATH and BURIAL OF Ellis Guss. 



Vlrac. P. I. 
Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Guss, 

Medina, Mich. , 

Dear Friends: 

It is my sad duty to inform you that Ellis has passed away. He died 
this morning at ten minutes of two. For several days he had been 
improving and we thought he was out of danger, but Tuesday he was suddenly 
taken worse and from then until last evening he grew steadily worse. He 
as conscious up to within a few hours of his death. 

He told us several times that he did not expect to get well, but 
said he was prepared to die. He often talked of you all, and told me to 
tell you all good-bye and to meet him in heaven. He said he wished it had 
been possible for him to come home again, but as he could not he was 
willing to submit to the Lord's will. 

Ellis had the best care during his illness. The doctor visited him 
several times a day, and did all that could be done. He had the best of 
nursing, both by the men at the hospital and by the men of his company. 
Everything was done for his comfort that possibly could be done. He was 
buried this afternoon, at five o'clock, with military honors. I will 
describe the funeral procession; First came the company musicians; then 
the firing squad, who fired the salute; then the pall bearers with the 

35 



coffin draped in the stars and stripes; next the oiilcers, and last came 
the company marching in columns of fours, all dressed in full uniform and 
wearing side arms. After reaching the grave, the 5th chapter of Romans 
was read by Theodore Harris, of Philadelphia, a member of the Methodist 
church. After lowering the coffin in the grave a salute of three volleys 
was fired and taps were blown by the musicians. 

Several Spaniards attended the funeral, also a number of Chinese, 
and any number of natives, all of whom showed the greatest respect. 

Ellis's death has been a sad blow to the company, as every man was 
his friend. 

The officers respected him as a non-commissioned officer, who did 
his duty at all times as a true soldier. His comrades respected him as a 
true comrade as well as a true friend. As for Sam and I, words cannot 
express what we feel. Since we enlisted Ellis had been more a brother to 
us than a friend, and being separated from home, he seemed to take the 
place of a father to us. If we were in doubt about anything, we would go 
to him and he was always willing to help us in any way; not only with 
advice, but he helped us many times to keep up courage when we were about 
ready to give up. 

I find I cannot put into words what I would like to express. I feel 
as if I had lost a brother, as, indeed, I have. I have often imagined 
what a happy day it would be when we all came home, but now I know the joy 
of that day will be mingled with sorrow, because the Lord has seen fit to 
take one of our number into His own care and keeping. Deep as I know your 
sorrow will be, you will have one comfort, and that Is that he was 
prepared to go. Only a few days before he died he said to tell "father, 
mother, Lewis, Carl and Florence good-bye," and for you all to meet him in 
heaven. He seemed to find great comfort in the Lord's prayer, saying it 
was the prayer his mother had taught him. 

He said if any one had any grudge against him he wanted them to 
forgive him; and he forgave all who had ever wronged him in any way. Vhen 
I am called to go hence I hope I may have the assurance he had that all is 
well with my soul. I know if we live right we shall meet him above, and 
much as we miss him, I feel as though his was the better lot. He has 
risen above the troubles here below, and with him all is now peace. I 
cannot at present say more. His burial here was, of course, only 
temporary. His remains will be sent home. 

I was with him almost all the time during his illness and have much 
to tell you If I am permitted to go home 

You have lost a noble son; his many friends have lost a good friend; 
we, his comrades, a true comrade, and his company a brave soldier and 
loyal patriot. 

Yours in sorrow, 

Ira W. Robinson"

"Fremont, 0. 
Feb 20th, 82 
Dear Brother, 

We received your letter and was very glad to hear that you 
were all well. I gave your letter to Tom Fry. If you know of a good 
piece of land that is cheap please let me know as it may tempt me to come 
out and look at it, that is if it can be had at a bargain, for $1,500 or 
$2,000 cash, as I am getting old working around by the day goes hard with 
me, and thought perhaps I could farm but you could advise me on that as 
you have farmed more than I have. All the relatives are pretty well 
except Aleck who has not been able to be out much this winter. 

I would like to change climates on account of my dissease, the 
Chronic Diorhea, which I have had ever since I had the Typhoid fever. We 
have got annother new railroad in Fremont from Wheeling, Virginia to 
Toledo for which company I have been working all winter up to the present 
time. 

I Hope you are all well. Write soon and let me know how you all are. 

Your Brother af f ectinately 
Samuel Gust" 

"HIS LIFE ENDED 

Last night at midnight Samuel Gust met his death off of the Lake 

Shore Railway bridge, on the ice forty feet below. The manner in which 

the sad event occurred cannot but impress upon ail a doubt as to whether 

it was accidental or that he crossed the bridge with suicidal intent. For 

40 



some twenty years the effects of a severe attack of typhoid fever hs been 
noticeable on the deceased, and each year he grew more morose and 
despondent, his fancy latterly being that he was wanted by the law and 
must go to the penitentiary. To escape his fancied punishment he wanted 
to leave Fremont. In company with Geo. Gust he visited Elmore yesterday, 
returning with his brother. About midnight he went out of the house and 
was seen to pass the window. He ran up the railroad track and across the 
bridge, being closely followed by his friends. Reaching within a few feet 
of the east end of the bridge some one shouted to him to turn to the right 
on account of a train and a moment afterward he reeled from the bridge, 
falling headlong, and was found in a few minutes dead, his neck being 
broken. It would seem that if he desired to commit suicide he would have 
done so as soon as the bridge was reached. No inquest will be held upon 
the body and the funeral will take place Thursday at 3 p. m. "

CASPER GUSS (Jr. ) #1247 

Casper Guss, the son of Casper Guss and Mary Magdalena Seltzer, was 
born 4 January 1831 in Berks County, Pennsylvania and died 21 September 
1904 in Tiffin, Ohio, and was buried in Greenlawn Cemetery. On 8 April 
1855 he married Malinda (Bookworth on marriage license) Bookwalter, who 
was born 8 May 1834 and died 22 February 1864. On 17 March 1870, 
inSeneca County, Ohio, he married Annie C (Nesnire) Nienuir, who was born 9 
November 1835 in Prussia, and died 30 November 1905 in Tiffin, Ohio, with 
burial in Greenlawn Cemetery, Tiffin, Ohio. 

"Casper Guss was a boy of 3^ years when his father and family moved 
from Pennsylvania to Ohio. His educational opportunities were few, on 
account of the conditions of the time and place, although he took 
advantage of all that he could secure. Vhen he was nineteen years old he 
went to Fremont, Ohio, where he remained at work in a blacksmith shop for 
two years, but, finding that this line of work was injuring his health, he 
returned to the farm. Here he remained until his father's death, and then 
managed the estate for his mother until 1871, when he purchased a farm of 
eight) acres in Pleasant township, which he operated for five years. 
Selling this farm, Mr. Guss bought another containing sixty five acres, in 
Eden township, and this he managed with success until he decided to 
somewhat limit his activity, and sold it, purchasing his home on 
Greenfield Street, Tiffin. Here he had enough land to enable him to take 
exercise in the raising of his choice fruit and vegetables, and to also 
enjoy the comforts and conveniences of city life. He was Democrat and 
during his residence in Sandusky County held a number of the local 
offices. He was a member of the first Reformed Church".

CHARLOTTE "LOTTIE" GUSS #12475 

Charlotte "Lottie" Guss was born on 26 September 1867, and like her 
brothers and sisters, in a log cabin, the fifth child of Casper Guss and 
Malinda Buckwalter. By the time of Lotties' birth, her three older 
brothers had died as infants or small children. Only her older sister Eva 
lived into adulthood. Her mother and father were people who were 
described as being poor, and it was a struggle to survive. Charlotte, 
from all that was said later in her life, was a young girl who was 
exceptionally beautiful, excitable, intelligent, and a person with a 
strong desire to learn, 

Shortly after her birth, her mother died, and in 1870 her father 
remarried. Probably this made an impression on the young girl. Both 
Casper and Annie, her stepmother, loved Lottie very much, and if Lottie 
lacked for anything, it was probably discipline. Her step-mother had 
known her father for 7 or 8 years before they were married, so Lottie 
probably knew her very well. Mrs. Guss helped Lottie as much as she could 
and would cut up her own clothes and make them into garments for her. 

Lottie had some habits that were of real concern to her parents. 
She had a habit of going away from home frequently, without the consent of 
her father or step-mother. Sometimes she would be away for a whole day in 
Tiffin, and sometimes she would be absent for a week or ten days at a 
time. Every time she would be located with her uncle, Romanus, in 
Fostoria. Also, she was very untidy and concerned her parents by going to 
bed with her shoes and stockings on. 

Vhen, but 15 years of age, she was teaching school in the public 
schools of Seneca County, Ohio, near Elmore. Vhen she was nineteen years 
of age, she left, without telling her parents, and went to Michigan and it 
was three or four weeks before they learned of her whereabouts. Her only 
reason for going, they found out, was that she objected to their concern 
about her going into Tiffin, with no reason for going. She staid at the 
home of her sister, Eva, and brother-in-law Daniel Hill. Vhile in 
Michigan, she sought employment as a school teacher, and caused real 
concern to her sister, Eva, as she kept company with a man, Marshall Vood, 
who they considered a man of poor reputation. The romance, however, ended 
with a disagreement between Lottie and Eva, and Lottie went to Chicago. 
Vhen Charlotte "Lottie" Guss went to Chicago, she stayed with Mrs. E. V. 
Barney (a relative?), St. Laureine (Lawrence ?) Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. 

She soon was employed by a Mr. Bair, a wealthy man of the wholesale 
millinery firm of Bair and Stetthelmer, as governess of his home. Soon 
she met, was courted, and married to a wealthy business man in Chicago by 
the name of Morris (Maurice?) C. Stetthelmer, a partner of Mr. Bair, on 
January 16, 1391, at Vesley M. E. Church. He was very interested in 
having her with him in his social life, but was concerned about her lack 
of education to be in society. For this purpose he sent her to Europe, 
where she acquired polite knowledge and a conversational knowledge of 
French. Upon the return trip she met Reuben M. Hoyt, who was a passenger 
on the same boat with her and a relationship sprang up between them which 

45 



led to a divorce between her and her Jewish husband. 

Reuben M. Hoyt, the millionaire cosmetic manufacturer, married 
Charlotte Guss Stettheimer, November 30, 1891 in the Transfiguration 
Chapel, in New York. Charlotte's father-in-law was so delighted with her 
as his new daughter-in-law that he gave her $25,000 as a wedding present. 
She used this money to buy herself a nice home at 326 V. 88th Street in 
New York City. Later she bought real estate on Lamartine Terrace in 
Yonkers, New York City. Lottie's marriage to Ruben Hoyt was one, in which 
money was, apparently, no problem. Apparently, she bought whatever she 
wanted, and she seemed to have securities to fall back on when her money 
supply would get low. She assumed the management of the Hoyt home, and 
was very excellent in her supervision of the affairs of the home. Lottie 
in private conversations told of her trips to Europe. She was introduced 
to the court circles of England, and on one trip had met Queen Alexandria. 

From the time she went to Michigan until she married Reuben Hoyt, in 
New York, she had no communication with her parents. After her marriage 
to Reuben Hoyt, she came to Tiffin frequently, and was always friendly 
with her father, stepmother and two half-brothers. She purchased a home 
for her father on at 246 South Greenfield Street in Tiffin. 

In 1901 she moved to Tiffin, Ohio. On May 15 the following article 
appeared in the Tiffin Advertiser newspaper: 

"LIVED LIKE A QUEEN 

FAIR YOUNG GRASS VIDOV IN TIFFIN IS SUED FOR DIVORCE 

Millionaire Husband Says Wife Got Quarter of a Million of His Wealth, 

and He Wants it Back 

Tiffin, 0., May 15 -(Special)- A handsome young woman came to 
Tiffin, last winter, from New York. She engaged a splendid suite of rooms 
at the leading hotel, surrounded herself with a corps of liveried 
servants, drove stylish equipages every day, and lived the lavish life of 
a queen. 

For months she has been the most conspicuous figure in the city, yet 
practically nothing was known of her. Her presence and style of living 
has created a mild sensation, and she has been talked about in every home 
in the city. 

At last, however, the mystery which surrounded her identity has been 
cleared. She is Mrs. Charlotte Hoyt, of New York, the wife of Reuben M. 
Hoyt, who inherited a large interest in the $12,000,000 estate of Jesse 
Hoyt, the cologne manufacturer. 

Hoyt is suing for divorce, and has also started suits in New York to 
have the courts set aside transfers of property to her. Hoyt alleges that 
his wife received too much attention from Ralph S. Townsend, a rich and 
handsome young New Yorker. 

Hoyt says he transferred to his wife a $40,000 house, $5,000 worth 
of furniture, $88,000 in securities, his interest in a trust fund which 

46 



yields her $5,000 a year, and his interest in an $80,000 estate. 

Hoyt says that after his wife got this property, in her own name she 
became addicted to intoxicating drinks. He says that he was forced to 
leave his own home, at times, because of his wife's condition. In 
addition to this he says she had a habit of having large bills charged to 
him, until he notified dealers not to extend credit to her and expect him 
to pay. Mrs. Hoyt denies all the allegations and says she hopes for a 
speedy trial of the property cases." 

The following day a followup article appeared in the Tiffin 
Advertiser as follows: 

■HAKES A COMPLETE DENIAL 

"Does Mrs. Charlotte Hoyt Vhen Interviewed by an Advertiser Reporter 

Says that She is the One that Has Been Wronged and Makes Many Startling 
Countercharges, Vhich She Claims Will be Proven at the Trial. 

Mrs. Charlotte Hoyt, mention of whose divorce proceedings in New 
York City was made in Wednesday's Advertiser, was seen by a representative 
of this paper in her home on Melmore street Wednesday evening and at her 
request. 

She was greatly chagrined at the publicity which the article has 
given to her domestic affairs, but greeted the reporter kindly, only 
expressing regret that the matter had gotten into the paper. 

She vehemently denied all of the allegations set forth in her 
husband's petition, and in order that the people of Tiffin might know her 
version of the affair, voluntarily gave the following statements for 
publication: 

She said that she was married in 1887, when but 19 years of age, to 
a Jewish gentleman in Chicago, by the name of Stettheimer, a member of the 
well-known mercantile firm of that name. They lived together for a number 
of years until 1891, when she obtained a divorce from him in New York. 

Soon afterward she married Hoyt, her present husband. She asserts 
that they lived together until Oct. 13, 1901, when, because of his vicious 
habits, she was forced to leave him. Among other things she claims that 
he is a degenerate of the very worst order, drank to excess, beat her 
cruelly, and consorted with other women, three of whom are named as co- 
respondents in her cross petition for a divorce. 

In reference to getting goods charged to her husband, she denies the 
statement vehemently, and refers to the well-known firms of Tiffany & Co., 
Stearns, Louise & Co., the Knickerbocker Trust Co.. and her counsel, 
Josepht T. Brown, Jr., all of New York, to substantiate her statement. 

Regarding the alleged attentions of one Ralph S. Townsend, hinted at 
in the former article, she said that he is an architect, and that he 
superintended the building of six houses on her property in Yonkers, a 
suburb of New York; that by reason of her husband's dissolute habits, she 
herself, was forced to attend to the business, and was thrown constantly 



in contact with the architect, and that their relations were simply those 
pertaining to the business. 

It is said that Mr. Hoyt was in Tiffin for several days three weeks 
ago. In reply to the question of his mission here, Mrs. Hoyt said that he 
came here for the sole purpose of making up with her, but that his 
treatment toward her in the past had been such that she could not 
entertain his proposition to live together again. 

In regard to the divorce proceedings, she said that the trial would 
come up some time in June and that it would develop some startling facts, 
which would not redound to the credit of the plaintiff in the case. 

It was sought by Hoyt to have the hearing in chambers, which means 
before the judge in private, but Mrs. Hoyt has, through her attorney, 
secured a jury trial, and full publicity will be given to all proceedings. 
She expressed a determination to contest the suit at every step, and 
expected to go to New York today to assist in the preparation of the case. 

It is also said that Mrs. Hoyt has a suit pending to enforce the 
payment of trust funds which have been made over to her and which her 
husband is attempting to have taken from her custody. 

The Advertiser has now given both sides of the story of this most 
interesting case, and in the meantime the outcome of the trial will be 
watched with unusual interest." 

One doctor from New York, a Dr. Polk, stated that he had seen Lottie 
on a number of occasions for small matters from 1892 to 1901, but her 
primary concern was that she seemed to be sterile, and she could not have 
children for her husband. This was so much upon her mind, the doctor 
stated that she resorted to anodynes so that she could sleep. At times, 
perhaps in her fancy, Lottie imagined herself as a Russian spy, and at 
other times she would think that she was a French spy. 

While in New York City, she became a member of St. Ignatius Church. 
She became very devoted to the church and remembered it in her will. 
After moving to Tiffin, she attended the services of the church and was 
very devout in her devotions, however, she never moved her membership to 
the Tiffin Episcopal Church. Apparently, her ties to New York City were 
very strong. 

Somewhere, in the course of her life, she started drinking alcoholic 
beverages. During the time of her education in Europe, this habit became 
an increasing problem. During the early part of her marriage to Reuben 
Hoyt, the drinking, was not a serious problem, but it became an increasing 
problem, and probably led to her estrangement with Reuben Hoyt and her 
moving to Tiffin, Ohio. Before leaving for Ohio, she sued for divorce, 
but it was agreed that she would go to Ohio, and that once there she would 
seek the divorce through the Ohio courts. 

It was in Tiffin, Ohio, that she asked brother Rufus Guss for a 
recommendation for a lawyer, and he advised her to go to Judge Jacob 
Frederick Bunn. Judge Bunn had been the probate judge of Seneca County 
from 1878 until 1884. At the time he was a widower, his wife having died 
in 1880. On June 14, 1901 she soon went to Judge Bunn' s office and 
presented her business card to him, telling him that she wanted a divorce 

48 



from Reuben Hoyt. 

Lottie then bought the most prestigious home, called the "Maples", 
in Tiffin, and made extensive improvements on the home. The home had been 
the family estate of the John Loomis family, located on Melmore Street. 
She contracted Lewis Ullrich, a Tiffin florist, to place boxes of flowers 
on the portico and on the roof surmounting it. She liked palms, and had 
them included in her plans for the grounds. 

She made a big impression very soon in Tiffin. She was the local 
girl who had returned to her home and was now a socialite, wealthy, and a 
curiosity. If she had wanted to be inconspicuous, her elegant' green 
dress, her open green carriage, her coachman (who also wore green) were 
enough to draw the attention of everyone. She was seen almost every day 
coming into downtown Tiffin, and naturally she became known as the "lady 
in green". She shocked the "Proper Tiffinites", by walking into the 
saloon of Ben Vullenschneider at 19 Court Street and ordering her shot of 
whiskey, just like any man. 

After leaving New York and coming back to Tiffin, her lifestyle had 
changed dramatically and she was known by many as a person who drank to 
excess much of the time. Employees of Mrs. Hoyt had seen her open eight 
bottles of champagne in a day and she had been known to drink a quart of 
brandy in a single day. Also, she was known to be a constant user of 
morphine. 

Her relationship with Judge Bunn grew from him being her attorney 
to being her companion much of the time, and he became a nightly visitor 
to visit Lottie. He would go riding with her in her carriage, and would 
seem to be in complete charge of her life. At other times, Lottie would 
comment to Eva, while being helped by Bunn, "You support me sister, and 
relieve Judge Bunn." A few moments later she made the remark to Bunn, 
"Get away from me, your hair dye smells!" She talked to her sister and 
made accusations that Bunn "wanted to get all of her people away from 
her." 

As her relationship became stronger with Bunn, her attitude became 
unfriendly to her family. It even caused a temporary separation of her 
father and step-mother who had now been married for 33 years. She said 
her stepmother was too old and "that she should go away and live some 
where else. Mrs. Guss left accordingly and returned to her home on 
Greenfield Street. She staid there a week and then went to live with her 
sister. Mrs. Baker". 

The relationship of Lottie with sister, Eva, had been very cool 
during the time of her stay in Chicago and Hew York, but when Lottie moved 
back to Tiffin, the sisters were closer, Eva and her family moved in with 
Lottie at the Maples, and were of great assistance to her. However, the 
closeness ended, after having first established a line of credit for Eva 
at the Griggs Company In Tiffin, she called the store, and told them not 
to give any more credit to Eva, while she was in the midst of making 
purchases at the store. The call was made after the family learned that 
Judge Bunn knew of Eva being in the store, and going to Lotties before the 
telephone call.

Lottie was a person who had a very strong attachment to animals. In 
one case she had a dog called "Bobbie", considered more than Just one of 
the family. He not only was permitted in the dining room when Lottie ate, 
but had a place at the table, provided with a napkin, fed with a spoon, 
and was instructed to eat the things which did not suit his canine taste, 
simply because they were good for him. 

Ross Heabler stated that he "acted as sexton at the funeral of Mrs. 
Hoyt's horse, which met its death in the crash which occurred on 
Washington Street in April of 1902, between Mrs. Hoyt's carriage and a rig 
belonging to the Varrensents. The obsequies over the dead horse was laid 
beneath an apple tree, at the Maples, on Melmore Street. A grave had been 
dug and the interring was done at night, by the light of a solitary 
candle. Mrs. Hoyt and Judge Bunn both stood beside the grave while Mrs. 
Hoyt wept and sobbed exclaiming ' look at my eyes and see how deep is my 
grief . The horse was wrapped about with several thicknesses of sheets 
brought from the house. Before the animal was lowered into the grave Mrs. 
Hoyt cast herself upon the carcass and kissed the head of the dead animal 
repeatedly, though the nostrils were running with blood because of the 
length of time that the horse had been dead. Vhen the carcass was in the 
grave Mrs. Hoyt bent over the opening, supported by Judge Bunn. She asked 
the privilege of casting in the first earth, inquiring of Heabler if that 
would be proper. The ceremonies completed she and Bunn returned to the 
house. Heabler did not observe that Mrs. Hoyt was intoxicated." 

Paul Lehman, an employee of Lottie, added to the story of the burial 
of the horse, "adding to what has been told before about this peculiar 
ceremony, that Mrs. Hoyt had placed a wreath of flowers in the grave after 
the horse had been placed therein." He "would occasionally see Mrs. Hoyt 
kneeling beside the graves of her dead animals and she would continue in 
the attitude of devotion for ten and fifteen minutes at a time. 

Dr. Washburn, said that when Mrs. Hoyt brought her horses to Tiffin 
she committed them to his keeping, stating to him that the horses were 
well bred ones and she wanted them to have special care. He was present 
at the stable when Mrs. Hoyt's horse was brought there after it had been 
injured in the runaway and collision on Washington Street. On that 
occasion Mrs. Hoyt wept, prayed and cursed. She damned the people of 
Tiltin and later she damned the person who had brought her to T.'ffin. 

Leo Warnement was driving the rig th=it collided with the carriage of 
^'h's. Hoyr, when her horse was killed. On three occasions he went to see 
Mrs. Hoyt about paying him for the damages to his rig. On the second visit 
her reply to him was "'ifho is to pay my damages?" Not hearing a reply that 
ne would pay for her horse, she showed him the door. 

Frank Lang said that he "saw Mrs. Hoyt discharge one of her male 
servants on the spot for throwing one of her cats out of the house. Mr. 
Lang said that be had been shown her animal cemetery by Mrs. Hoyt. There 
was a concrete walk about the spot where the horse was buried and the 
grave was grown with myrtle." 

Before her death, she told brother-in-law Daniel Hill that she was 
going to get a divorce from Reuben Hoyt, just to teach him a lesson and 

50 



that after the divorce she intended to marry him again. To her friend and 
employee, Hiss Ella Manley, Lottie, a short time before her death stated 
that she wanted to be buried in the Hoyt lot in Greenwood Cemetery, 
Brooklyn, New York. Also, she was convinced that at her death, her will 
would be contested, and she said, "My dear girl, there will be a big fight 
which my people will institute. You will live to see it and I wish I 
could." Also, Miss Manley told of Lottie owning a red dress, which she 
called her fighting dress. Lottie said she called it her "fighting dress" 
because she had a fight everytime she wore it! Judge Bunn found it 
convenient, before Miss Manley, a woman of color, gave her testimony at 
the trial, to give her a nice chicken! 

While in Tiffin, she was a very generous person, and the fact was 
well known in the city, One of her last conscious acts was her giving 
each of here nine servants a check for $25. 

Mrs. Charlotte Guss Hoyt died on January 17, 1903, Private funeral 
services were held in the home, after which the body was taken to New York 
and buried on the Hoyt lot in Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn. 

After the death of Lottie, and due to the fact that one will (of at 
least five that Lottie had written) gave most of the assets to Judge Bunn, 
the matter wound up in court, as Lottie had predicted. 

One will, written in November, 1900, contained provisions for her 
relatives and for her dogs and was extremely long and painfully 
complicated. 

Another will written May 16, 1902 and made in Tiffin, Ohio provided 
for her dumb animals and gave the bulk of the estate to Rufus Guss, her 
half-brother. 

Still another will written July 8, 1902 gave to the St. Ignatius 
Episcopal Church, of New York, all of her estate, real and personal, the 
condition that the church pay $100 a month for the care of her dogs, in 
addition, there was a bequest of $50,000 to Judge Bunn. 

A will dated August 2, 1902 gave her father $100 a month, and made 
provision for her cats and dogs and $30,000 was set aside for these 
purposes. There was a clause in the will giving to Judge Bunn $50,000. 
The balance of the estate was given to St. Ignatius Church. 

On August 9, 1902, another will gave Casper Guss $1C0 a month and an 
additional $200 to be paid at his death and $50 to be paid at his death 
and $50 a month was given to the care of her animals. The fifth clause of 
the will gave Judge Bunn $50,000 but across the face of the will was 
written the words: Void, All paid. 

The following is the will of Charlotte M. Hoyt accepted by the 
court; 

"I, Charlotte M. Hoyt do make and publish this my last will and 
testament, hereby revoking all former wills by me made. 

First: It is my will and I direct that all my just debts and 
funeral expenses be fully paid; that I be given a simple but respectible 
burial in Greenwood Cemetery, New York, in case I should die without re- 
marrying, and in case I should re-marry then with my said husband or such 
place as he may select; and that a sufficient fund be provided and set 

51 

0199509 



aside out of my estate for the perpetual maintenance of my grave in a 
suitable manner. 

Second; I give and bequeath to my father Casper Guss one hundred 
dollars ($100) per month for and during his natural life, payments to be 
made monthly beginning immediately after my death, and an additional two 
hundred dollars ($200) to be paid after his death for funeral expenses. 

Third: I give and bequeath to the Society for the Prevention of 
Cruelty to Animals of the City of New York fifty dollars ($50) per month 
for the care and maintenance of all cats and dogs of which I may die the 
owner, payments to begin at my death and to continue so long as they shall 
maintain any of said animals. 

Fourth: It is my will and I hereby direct that at least thirty 
thousand dollars worth of good securities or productive real estate remain 
under the management of my executor until the provision of items two and 
three of this will are fully carried out. 

Fifth: The residue of my estate, real and personal, I give, devise 
and bequeath to my friend J. F. Bunn of Tiffin, Ohio. 

Sixth: I hereby nominate and appoint my friend Joseph T. Brown, Sr. 
of the Knickberbocker Trust Co. , Hew York, as Executor of this my last 
will and testament. 

Vitness my hand this 9th day of September, 1902. 

Charlotte M. Hoyt (seal) 

The foregoing instrument was signed, declared and acknowledged by 
Charlotte M. Hoyt, as and for her last will and testament, in our presence 
on this 9th day of September, 1902. 

Raymond L. Simpson (seal) 
Robt. E. Swigert." 

Shortly after probation of the will, Judge Bunn offered Mrs. Hill a 
settlement, supposedly $15,000, and also offered monetary provisions for 
Rufus and Frank Guss. At first, Mrs. Hill seemed to approve the offer, 
but changed her mind, discharged her lawyer, and hired another lawyer from 
Fremont. 

In order to try to void the will, Reuben Hoyt, Eva, and her half 
brothers contested the will. However, before the case came to trial, 
Reuben Hoyt removed himself as a plaintiff in the case. Then the other 
plaintiffs tried to have Lottie found insane as this was their only hope 
of winning. Eleven people, many of whom were relatives, stated that 
Lottie was insane, but the defense had 51 witnesses who declared Mrs. Hoyt 
as being sane. 

Vhen the verdict was handed down in the case Judge Bunn was awarded 
everything that the approved will gave him. Judge Bunn certainly profited 
by his association with Mrs. Hoyt. However, both he and Dr. R. E. 
Swigart, her physician, were in disgrace. It was the firm opinion of the 
informed gossips that both of these men had deliberately abetted Charlotte 
in her weakness by keeping her supplied with her favorite brand of 
whiskey. But this was gossip and not acceptable evidence, and there was 
not a case for the Grand Jury, Both Dr. Swigart and Judge Bunn found it 
advisable to leave Tiffin."

with a sudden death Monday afternoon, the news of which was a great shock 
to his family, relatives and friends. 

53 



Tiie hour of his death was about 5:40 o'clock. At the time mentioned 
he was in St. Ann's Cemetery having driven there a short time previous to 
do some work for Mrs. McCormick. 

Reaching there in advance of the lady, he sat down in a shady spot 
and read a paper. In a few moments he looked up and saw Mrs. McCormick 
approaching across the cenetery and spoke to his son Ralph who was with 
him, "Our lady is coming." These were the last words he spoke. He 
folded his paper, started to get up on his feet when he staggered and fell 
and would have fallen to the ground but that he was caught by his son and 
tenderly laid on the ground. He neither spoke nor moved after he fell and 
expired immediately. Heart disease was the cause. Last winter an attack 
of the grip affected the heart and from time to time since he has 
complained of heart fluttering. The remains were removed from the 
cemetery to his late residence on Napoleon Street. 

George A. Gust was one of Fremont's best known business men, having

RALPH LEASE GUST #12493 

The following is the obituary notice of Ralph Lease Gust; 

"FUNERAL SUNDAY 
Tumor on the Brain, Not Meningitis, Caused Ralph Gust's Sudden Death 

The funeral of the late Ralph Lease Gust, whose sudden death was 
announced in Thursday's News, will be held at the late residence on 
Napoleon street, Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, under the auspices of the

severe pains in his head, combined with a dull headache. He consulted 
physicians and was given relief, but it was only temporary. Retiring as 

54 



usual Wednesday evening, Mr. Gust was taken seriously ill and several 
physicians were summoned and consultations held. The patient was 
unconscious and remained in that condition tor several hours, finally 
passing to the sleep that knows no awakening. A hemmorhage of the brain 
was the real cause of his death and was brought on by a tumorous growth, 
with which Mr. Gust had been afflicted for some time. It was first 
believed that his illness and death was due to spinal meningitis, but 
later developments showed the real cause to be tumor of the brain. 

The deceased was one of the well known business men of the city and 
was associated with his brother, George Gust, in conducting the Gust 
Monumental works on Justice street, established by their father many years 
ago. In business Mr. Gust had been very successful, due to his honesty, 
integrity and hustling abilities. His circle of friends and acquaintances

SIMEON GUSS #16 

"He was born February 15, 1773, and was five years old when the 
patriot army lay near by, at Valley Forge. His trade was that of a 
shoemaker and he resided near Kimberton (in East Pikeland Twp. ) . In 1803 
he moved near Landisburg, Perry County, near where Holman, the husband of 
his sister, and Zachariah Rice, Jr., the husband of his wife's siser, had 
moved previously. In 1315, Simon Guss and his son Abraham came over the 
luscarora Mountain to Milord township, in Juniata County, after the 
customs of those days, when tailors, shoemakers and such tradesmen did 
their work from house to house. Being pleased with the country and the 
business outlook in that region, the family moved over the next year. 

Simon Guss married Barbara, daughter of Henry Knerr, who came to 
America a poor boy, in 1752, served his time to pay his passage with 
Conrad Seiner, and as the result of a prosperous life, he died about 1805, 
leaving an estate worth near ten thousand dollars. In returning from a 
trip to Chester County, Barbara brought with her one time, tied on behind 
the saddle on which she rode, two small sweet cherry trees, one black and 
the other red, which were planted at her residence, where Ephraim Guss now 
lives, and were the first fruit of the kind planted in the region."

Casper Shunk (also spelled Schunck, Schunk, Shunck) was a tax payer 
in Vincent Township, in 1734. He was probably the father of Simon 
Shunk. 



Simon Shunk arrived in America on 24 September 1737 on the ship 
"Virtuous Grace" from Rotterdam. He was living in Vincent Township, 
Chester County, Pennyslvania by 1753 when he was listed as one of the 
taxables. In 1774, tax records showed him as owning 130 acres of land 
plus buildings, with 3 horses, 4 cattle and 7 sheep, for which he paid 
taxes of 1-0-3. By 1774 Simeon (probably Simon) Shunk and Conrad Shunk 
were listed as land-owners. They were the children of Simon Shunk as 
was Mary Shunk who had married Charles Guss, the immigrant. Peter Shunk 
and Isaac Shunk were appointed as two of the administrators of Simon 
Shunk, when his estate was ordered to be probated on 23 December 1785, 
in Chester County, Pennsylvania. 

The early records of the Reformed Congregation of Vincent Township, 
show that the first church of that name was an old log building was 
built and consecrated in May 1758. Simon Shunk was a member of the 
vestry of that church. From its beginning in 1758 until 1833 735 
persons were baptized. On November 1st, 1812 the congregation of the 
church met in their school-house, and elected a new building committee 
for the proposed new church edifice. In the graveyard, located next to 
the church grounds, are buried many of the early settlers in the 
vicinity. One of them, Peter Shunk (uncle of Governor Francis Rawn 
Shunk) has his birth year of 1756 and his death year of 1814 on his 
tombstone. 

The children of of Simon Shunk and Anna Maria Shlmer were:

Anna Maria "Mary" Schunck was born 4 May 1741, and christened in the 
Reformed Church, Spring City, Pennsylvania on 4 June 1741. The witness 
to her christening was her mother Anna Maria Schaumerin (Shimer, 
Shymer) . 

She was married, on 12 July 1761 in Chester County, Pennsylvania, to 
Charles Guss, the immigrant. Mary died on 30 April 1821 and is buried 
in the cemetery of Rhodes Church near Spring City, Chester County,

THIRTY THOUSAND NAMES OF GERMAN, SVISS, FRENCH, AND OTHER IMMIGRANTS IN 
PENNSYLVANIA FROM 1727 to 1776, by I. Daniel Rupp 



63 



John Conrad Shimer (also spelled Shymer, Schamerln) came to America 
in 1732, with his wife, Anna Margaret, and daughter, Maria. They came 
on the ship "Johnson of London" which sailed from Rotterdam, September 
19, 1732. 

Conrad Shimer, as he was known, settled in Vincent Township, Chester 
County, Pennsylvania, where he acquired considerable property and was a 
prominent citizen. In the 1764 taxes of Vincent Township, he was listed 
as having 520 acres of land with buildings. Also he was the owner of a 
grist mill, 4 horses 6 cattle and three sheep. He also had one servant. 

Upon his death the following will (a translation, as the original 
was written in German) was ordered to be recorded in Chester County, 
Pennsylvania: 

"In the name of God, Amen. I, Conrade Shymer of Vincent Township,

While the will directs that the farm on which he lived was to become 
the property of Charles Guss, there is no court record to verily this. 
However, when Conrad Shimer died, Charles was not of age, and the 
following document was recorded in Chester County Court: 

"To the Honourable Justices of an Orphans court to be held at the 
Red Lion the 16th of October anno Domini 1780.-

When the inventory of his personal estate was presented to court it 
included many items. Two thousand three hundred sixty one pounds, 18 
shillings and 6!^ pence were owed to him by bonds, notes and book 
accounts. It was noted, however, that of this amount, 2013.. 7.. 6 which

He had a riding horse with saddle and bridle; two red cows, two 
black & white cows, and two young red cows, a red heifer and two spring

large Bible; two spinning wheels so that his wife could have something 
to do! He had a cross cut saw, which kept the house warm, and him also! 
He also had cooper tools so that he could make his barrels. His many 
personal items were appraised at 2796 pounds, so he was financially well 
off.

Hans Jacob Seltzer was born In 1732 in the Upper Rhine Province, 
near Coblentz, in the vicinity of the famous Seltzer Springs in Germany. 
At the age of 20 Hans Jacob Seltzer sailed for America on the ship 
"Edinburgh" from Amsterdam, Netherlands and later from Cowes, England 
arriving in Philadelphia 19 September 1752. The same day he took the 
Oath of Allegiance at the State House in Philadelphia, signing his name 
"Hans Jacob Seltzer". He settled in Heidelberg Twp. where afterwards 
Vomelsdorf, formerly Middletown, was laid out. The Seltzers were among 
the first settlers of Vomelsdorf and were enterprising folk of the 
Tulpehocken region. They supplied the other settlers with flour made 
at Seltzer's Mill, which was located on Tulpehocken Creek at the lower 
end of Vomelsdorf. This mill was an old landmark. He married Catherine 
Hiester, of Bern Township, about 1753. She was born 20 February 1735 
and died 5 June 1817 in Berks County, Pensylvania. 

Hans' nans appeared on the tax list in 1759, and from 1767 to 1785. 
He was taxed for 25 acres of land, one horse and one cow in 1767, In 
1768 he was taxed for a tavern, one horse and one cow. In 1779 he was 
taxed as an innkeeper with 65 acres of land, two horses and two cows. 
In 1780 and 1781 he still had the inn, and the horses and the cows, but 
his land increased to 67 acres. In 1784 and 1785, no longer was he 
taxed for the inn, but he had 60 acres of land and two horses and two 
cows. 

In 1762 he built the first house in the newly laid out town of John 
Vomelsdorf, which later was operated as the inn for which he was taxed. 
The inn, or tavern, was known as the Seltzer House, as it is still known 
to this day. The original building was replaced by a two story building 
of large limestone blocks. George Vashington and party slept here on 
the 13th of November, 1793. The old road ran diagonally across what is 
now the Main or High Street of Vomelsdorf. 

His Revolutionary Var service is as follows: He was delegated to 
attend the public meeting of the Militia of Berks and other counties 
held at Lancaster, July 4, 1776, consisting of officers and privates of 
fifty-three battalions of the Associators of Pennsylvania, to choose two 
Brigadier Generals to command the Pennsylvania forces. He was then a 
private in the 5th battalion of Col. John Patton and Lt. Col. John Rice. 
In September, 1777, he served as a Committeeman on the Council of 
Safety, to collect arms and clothing. He also served in Capt . Benjamin 
Veiser's Company of Heidelberg in a German regiment commanded by Col. 
Nicholas Hausegger, 8th class. He is mentioned as having served as a 
Court Martial man in the oth battalion, western section of Berks Co. , 
commanded by Co. Henry Spyker in the company of capt. Conrad Veiser (4th 
Co., Heidelberg), June 14, 1777. 

He died in 1738 in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Both are buried in 
Zion's Cemetery, Vomelsdorf, Berks County, Pennsylvania. 

Hans 3i Maria Seltzer were the parents of: Michael, Jacob, Elizabeth, 
Eva Catharine, Mary, and Catharine Seltzer.

Michael Seltzer was born in 1753 and baptized 13 August 1753 and 
confirmed In 1772. He married Magdalena Lantzert, the daughter of 
George Lantzart, and died cl807. She married Frederick Valtz, after the 
death of Michael. Michael Seltzer was a Revolutionary soldier, serving 
under Capt. John Spohn and Co. McGaw. On 26 Aug 1776, Michael Seltzer 
enlisted as a sergeant in Michael Wolf's Company. He was taken prison 
16 Nov 1776 at the Battle of Long Island and died in prison. One of his 
comrades brought back to his family the news of his imprisonment and 
death. 

"My grandmother told me many times about her grandfather who went to 
war and was captured by the British and died in captivity either from 
exposure or starvation. The story of his imprisonment was brought back 
to the family by one of the prisoners from their section of the country 
who had escaped. He left a widow with three young sons of whom her 
grandfather, Abraham was one. John and Jacob being the names of the 
other two. 

In later years this information and knowing that at the time they 
lived in Berks County, near Reading, I began the search through the Var 
records in the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania 
Archives of the Revolutionary Var in the Philadelphia Public Library. 

The following are scattered accounts all relating to him and the 
conditions under which he lived and suffered during his short time in 
t he war . 

The Middle Dutch Church in New York City had 3000 prisoners, taken 
at Long Island and Fort Washington. Sick and wounded and well were 
huddled together by hundreds and thousands and large numbers of whom 
died by disease and many were poisoned by their attendants for their 
watches and silver buckles. 

For many weeks the dead cart visited the prison every morning and 
took away from eight to twelve corpses which were dumped into ditches on 
the outskirts of the city. 

Of the numerous prison pens in the New York City during the 
revolution (among which were the old sugar houses) only two yet stand 
like charred and battered monuments of cruelty and tyranny. The North 
Dutch Church on William Street and the Middle Dutch Church (The present 
Post Office). In the former edifice 800 prisoners were incarcerated 
without fuel or bedding during two of the coldest winters New York has 
ever known. Their provisions were scanty and of the poorest quality and 
as a natural result many died from cold and starvation. 

There was not a fire except in the lamps and not a pane of glass in 
the windows and nothing to keep out the cold except the iron grates. 

Adolph Mayer, a prisoner, said their allowance was one loaf of 
bread, one quart of peas, half a pint of rice and one and a half pounds 
of pork for six days. 

Many prisoners died from want. No care was taken of the sick and If 
they died they were thrown at the door of the prison and lay there till 

68 



the next day when they were carted out to the entrenchments beyond the 
Jews burial ground, where they were thrown into a hole promiscuously." 

HISTORICAL NOTES 

The following 4th Co. of Berks County Militia were on duty during 
August to September 1776 at South Amboy, New Jersey at the mouth ol the 
Raritan River opposite the southern extremity of Staten Island. They 
were at that place during the Battle of Long Island. 

In the battalion of John Patton: a Michael Seltzer was a sargent in 
Michael Volf's Co. They were Bathel and Tulpehocken Townships. (Page 
106, "Berks County in the Revolution") 

A Peter Daubert of Reading enlisted in 1776 in Capt. Biler's 3rd 
Regiment captured by the British at Ft. Washington and taken to New York 
and confined in a French Church. 

Record of Michael Seltzer (Found in the PA Archivess of the 
Revolutionary Var, 5th series Vol 5 and Berks County in the 
Revolutionary Var, at the Pennsylvania Historical Society, 13th and 
Locust Street, Philadelphia. 

Three companies from Berks County were in service at New York and in 
that vicinity in 1776. Two of them formed part of the 5th Battalion of 
Pennsylvania troops which were under the command of Col. Robert Xagaw 
of Carlisle. The Captains were John Spohn and Peter Decker both 
residents of Reading. The men of Spohns Company were from Reading, but 
those of Deckers Co. were mostly from the districts surrounding Reading. 
In the roll of Spohns Company were a private Michael Selser (Seltzer^, a 
Jacob Miller, and a Peter Miller. The command of the company was from 
Jan 5th 1776 to Nov 1776. 

On the 11th of June 1776 congress ordered this battalion with the 
5th, Col. Magaw to New York. On the 15th they marched, reaching New 
York from the 20th to the 25th and on the 29th they were put under 
the command of Brig. Gen. Mifflin. 

Both Battalions were marched towards Kingsbridge, encamped upon the 
ground on which Fort Washington was erected, and immediately employed in 
the construction of that fortress under the command of Col. Rufus 
Putnam. They remained there all summer. 

Sickness prevailed towards fall to so great an extent that little 
more than half of the men were fit for duty. They remained undisturbed 
until Battle of Long Island on the 27th of August when they were marched 
down to New York reaching the City in the afternoon after the battle was 
over. Early on the 28th they were transported to Long Island, marched 
down to the entrenchments at Brooklyn and posted at the left, extending 
to the Wallabout. Here annoyed by continual rain without tents they lay 
upon their arms keeping up incessant skirmishing with the British. 
After dark on the 29th of August orders were received to hold the 
battalion in readiness for an attack upon the enemy, but this only an 
artifice, these battalions with the Maryland battalions being detached 
to cover the retreat of the main army from the Island, 

69 



On the 31st of August they marched beyond Kingsbridge toward the 
Sound, and crossed the Bronx, encamped about 18 or 20 miles from the 
City. After this post was sufficiently strenghtened, the two battalions 
reoccupied their old ground at Ft. Washington. 

The main army remained on the heights of Harlem a period of five 
weeks. Magaws battalion constituted a part of it and did duty 
accordingly. 

For further information on the capture of the fort, etc. see 
Graydons Memoirs, for an account of the captivity of the officers, 230 
of them being posted. Lieutenant Forest escaped. 
Also Historical Magazine, New York City 1857, page 73 

Capt. John Spohns Co enlisted at Reading, Pennsylvania on the 28th 
day of May, 1776. His company numbered 78 men including officers. The 
entire battalion including Spohns company were captured at Ft. 
Washington 

Extracts from Graydon's Memoirs: "While from the advantage of 
bearing commission, we had the benefit of free air and the use of our 
limbs. Our poor devoted soldiers were enclosed within walls, scantilly 
supplied with provisions of bad quality, wretchedly clothed and 
destitute of sufficient fuel, if any. Disease was the inevitable 
consequence of such a situation, and their prison of course soon became 
hospitals. A fatal malady was generated and the mortality was 
deplorable. Once only I ventured to penetrate within these abodes of 
human misery and despair, but to what purpose repeat my visit, when I 
had neither relief to administer nor comfort to bestow. 

On the 16th of November 1776 Ft. Washington on the East Bank of the 
Hudson near New York City after a desperate resistance on the part of 
the Americans was surrendered by Col. Magaw of the Pennsylvania Line. 
Look up Lessings Field Book of the Revolution."

after Polly & Isaac Miller moved to Indiana their dog 
returned to Pennsylvania. The home folks were 
frightened, as they thought the travelers had been 
murdered by the Indians and that the dog had eluded 
them. Later they received a letter telling them about 
the dog's becoming frightened at the noise of falling 
trees when the land was cleared and running away. He 
came all the way home on foot from Indiana. He was 
exhausted and his feet were bleeding. How he found his 
way back was always considered miraculous. He probably 
suffered from homesickness also.

Andrew Miller, son of Andrew Miller, Jr. & Christina 
Deibert, b 5 Oct 1805 Schuylkill Haven d 15 March 1883 
Drehersville, PA 

In 1835 Peter Miller and his wife, Catherine, traveled 
by team to the central part of Ohio where the road 
ceased. From there they finished their Journey to 
Indiana on horseback. It was on this trip that 
Catherine changed horses from a small one to a larger 
one in midstream of a river they had to cross. Peter 
left the horses with Catharine and hunted for a bridge. 
Finding one, he crossed and came back up the other side 
and called to Catharine to swim the horses across. In 
mid-stream her horse gave out and she had to change to 
the other one. She was known as a good horsewoman, not 
because of this particular incident alone. While out 
there they bought a farm at Lower Sandusky, Ohio, for 
$600 and sold it for $1300, and remarking that 
Pennsylvania was good enough for them, they came home. 
The main object of their visit was to see Peter's 
father, Andrew Miller, Jr.

Sept 1766 d 25 Oct 1842 

After their marriage Jacob & Catharine moved into the 
public house built by his father, Hans Jacob Seltzer, to 
become for years the host Si hostess to the traveling 
public, the horde of wagoners that transported their 
grain to the Philadelphia market before the Union Canal 
was built, and to the men who hauled ore from Cornwall 
to Charming Forge. On November 13, 1793 Jacob and 
Catharine Seltzer were hosts for the night to General 
George Washington and other distinguished guests who 
were traveling from Philadelphia. These guests included 
Robert Morris, Financier of the Revolution, David 
Rittenhouse, astronomer and engineer, Vllliam Smith, 
Provost of the University of Pennsylvania, and Tench 
Francis, the land agent of the Penn's estate. In 1823 
Jacob's son Michael, born in 1800 and married to 
Catharine Hain, took over the operation of the inn and 
made many improvements to the property including the 
planting of shade trees and orchards, which Mrs. Cockill 
greatly enjoyed seeing on her visit there.

The Hiester families of Pennsylvania were descended from John and 
Catharine Hiester of Elsoff, in the domains of the County of 
Vitzenstein, province of Westphalia, now in Germany. John Hiester came 
to America in 1732 and Joseph and Daniel followed in 1737. They came to 
Philadelphia and settled there. That area is now in Montgomery County, 
Pennsylvania. 

Daniel Hiester settled in what is now Berks County, but in 1796 he 
moved to Maryland, and then to Washington, where he died in 1801/2. 
John moved to Chester County as a young man, and he and his family lived 
in Pottstown until his death. 

While Daniel and John moved from Berks County, Joseph stayed in 
Berks County, and many of his descendents. From the list of descendents 
of John and Catharine Hiester lists a lot of men, at least in the early 
days, records were not very complete for the women born into the Hiester 
family. One of the women was Maria Catharine Hiester who was born 20 
Feb 1735, who married Hans Jacob Seltzer. Possibly, she was the grand- 
daughter of Joseph, as he remained in Berks County. 

The Hiester family was prominent in the affairs of the Montgomery, 
Berks, and Chester Counties area. Many of their sons enlisted in the 
army during the Revolution. After the Revolution, they became involved 
in politics and served their country in the governing bodies of 
Pennsylvania and the United States. Joseph Hiester, the son of John, 
became Governor of the State of Pennsylvania. The family was 
industrious and labored hard and invested in the land of the area and 
besides being involved In the government they became financially well 
off.

P^ETER FAUST 



Peter Faust, the immigrant, came to America in 1733 from Rotterdam 
on the ship Elizabeth and landed in Philadelphia, PA 27 August 1733, and 
on the same day took the oath of allegiance to the King of England, b 1689 
Germany d Nov 1745 Exeter Township, Berks Co. , PA m Anna Elizabeth 

b cl693 in Germany. Vhen they arrived in America they listed the 

following seven children: 

Philip Faust age 20 

Micoll Faust age 13 

Johannes Faust age 11 

Johan C. Peter Faust age 9

Matelena Faust age 3 (died at sea) 

Johan Hendrick Faust age 2 

On the same day of the arrival of Peter Faust, he took the Oath of 
Allegiance to the King of England, a fact recorded in the Pennsylvania 
Archives. 

Peter, after three years, bought 100 acres of land in Oley Township, 
Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. The warrant (number 42) is dated 
October 26, 1736. He obtained another 100 acres on November 9, 1736. In 
1741 Oley Township was split into two townships and Peter's property was 
then in Exeter Township. Later, after Peter's death Exeter Township 
became part of Berks County. 

Peter died in November 1745. His will, filed in Philadelphia on 
January 22, 1745 was written in German, and translated as follows: 

"This 22nd day of January, anno 1745, I, Peter Faust, made my last 
will and testament. If the loving God should call me out of this world. 

First, Peter shall have the plantation and all what is on it, 
horses, cows, sheeps, swines, and all the household goods, except the 
mother's bed. Peter shall also give to the mother every year. First, 
fifteen bushels of wheat and 14 bushels of rye; fifteen pounds flax; and a 
cow, which she likes best of all the rest, and he must fodder the cow like 
his own creatures; also, a fat swine; the garden near the old house to her 
use; and every year, the wool of one sheep; one gallon of rum; and half a 
gallon of molasses; the third part of the apples; and every year five 
shillings in money; and shall have the use of the kitchen ware during her 
lifetime as much as Peter, and all that she does not want of these things 
above mentioned shall be Peter's. 

Johannes shall have fifteen pounds in money. Five pounds shall be 
paid to him by Peter, anno 1750, and five pounds, anno 1751, and five 
pounds, anno 1752, and he shall give him a cow, anno 1749, and a black 
mare colt now immediately. 

Michael shall have the thirty pounds which he had of his father for 
his portion, but the money he borrowed from Jhannes Schneider's widow he 
shall pay if he comes again.

PHILIF' FAUST 

Philip Faust, the son of Peter and Anna Elizabeth Faust, was born in 
February 1713 in Germany. After arriving in America he married Magdalena 
Albrecht, the daughter of Johannes and Anna Barbara Albrecht, in 
Pennsylvania. "Phillip took the Oath of Allegiance to the United States 
of America June 12, 1778. 

He bought his first land, fifty acres, in Bern Township, Lancaster 
County (later Berks County), on 17 May 1742. Then on June 2, 1746, he 
bought another 176 acres in the same township. On August 29, 1766, he 
bought another 71 acres of land. In 1785-86 Philip deeded all the above 
land to his son Ludwlg who signed bonds totaling 600 pounds. This 600 
pounds was to be divided among the other heirs of Philip faust. This farm 
remained in the Faust family until 1889, a total of 147 years. This 
homestead was located 2 miles northwest of Centerport on the road leading 
from Mohrsville to Shartlesville, Pennsylvania. 

Philip was very active in the Reformed Church as were the other 
early Fausts. Philip was one of the organizers of St. Michael's Church, 
organized August 6, 1769, just 2 miles from where he lived. Philip was 
one of the first elders. 

Philip Faust was a Revolutionary Var Patriot. His grave is marked 
by a historical marker. He Is burled in the old St. Michael's cemetery 
beside his wife, Magdalena. Their tombstones are in German. Philip's 
tombstone says "Here rests Philip Faust b. Feb. 1713, with hj s wife, 
Magdalena, he produced 6 sons, 4 daughters. Two sons of these in the 
everlasting. Died April 19, 1736." Magdalena' s tombstone reads, "This is 
the resting place of Magdalena Faust b. 1716, d. 1789. Age 73 years. 6 
months, and three days. She lived in marriage 43 years. Produced 10 
children, of which 8 are yet living, namely 4 sons and 4 daughters." 

On July 3, 1786, letters of administration in the estate of Philip 
Faust were granted to John Faust and Heinrich Moll of Bern Township, Berks 
County, Pennsylvania. Final distribution took place on January 22, 1789."

"Philip Faust was born in 1750 in Berks County, the son of Philip 
Faust and Magdalena Albrecht. He served as a soldier in the Revolution 
and is listed in the Upper Company of the Berks County Militia commanded 
by Col. Balzer Gehr. He owned 160 acres in Bern Township, Berks County, 
until 1792. He then moved to East Brunswick Township (later Schuylkill 
County) as did his brothers Johannes and Jacob. Only his brother Ludwig 
stayed in Bern Township. In 1792 he bought 100 acres from Richard Villits 
on the Little Schuylkill River in East Brunswick Township. He lived on 
this land the rest of his life, the property being near New Ringgold, 
Schuylkill County. In 1874 the land was patented to Simon Marburger, the 
husband of Philip's granddaughter, Catherine Seltzer Marburger. However, 
some of the land Philip sold on March 20, 1830, to the Little Schuylkill 
Navigation and Canal Company for the right-of-way for the famous canal. 
Philip lived to a very ripe old age and was highly respected in this area. 
His wife was named Susanna but her maiden name is not known. Both Philip 
and Susanna are buried at Freiden's Church Cemetery at New Ringgold, 
Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. Beside them rest the remains of three of 
their grandchildren, son of their son, Peter Faust."

FAUST-FOUST FAMIY IN AMERICA, by Dr. Howard M. Faust 



91 



Friedrich Anton Knabe was born 5 October 1805 in Prussia and died 21 

June 1886 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He married Anna C. who 

was born cl808 in Prussia 



Villlam Knabe was born in 1836 in the Royal-Prussian Province of 
Saxony and died the 10th of March, 1905, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He 
married Catharine Berger on the 23rd day of April 1861 in East 
Birmingham, Allegheny County, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, by Harm. 
Gilbert, the Pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran St. Paul's Church . 
Christ Knabe, Sara Ermin and Caroline Hartmann were witnesses of their 
wedding. Catherine was the daughter of Christ Berger and Catherine 
Ittel, and she was born in 1838 in the Royal Bavarian Palatinate in 
Germany. She died on the 7th day of February 1916 and is buried in the 
Genito Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Powhatan County, Virginia. 

William Knabe enrolled in Company G, of the 5th Pennsylvania Heavy 
Artillery Regiment on 23rd day of August 1864, as a private, and served 
until 30 June 1965 when he was honorably discharged at Vienna, Virginia. 
On the 28th day of August 1909 he applied for a pension for "chronic 
articula rheumatism" which occurred at Piedmont, Virginia in February 
1865. He slept all night in an open field, and during the night his 
blankets froze to the ground. 

While in the Union Army he was stationed in Virginia and one of his 
assignments was to blow up the bridge over the Appomattox River, which 
went from Powhatan County to Amelia County, very near his future home in 
Powhatan County. His future home fronted on Petersburg Road, which was 
the retreat route of General Robert E. Lee's army to Appomattox Court 
House. 

In his application for a pension, the following information was 
given by Dr. A. J. Barchfeld: 

"Oct 21, 1889 
Hon. James Tanner 
Commissioner of Pensions 
Washington, D. C. 
My dear Sir, 

In the claim for Invalid Pension No 693393 of Wm Knabe, he states 
his residence to be 1502 Washington Street 28th Ward Pittsburg Pa. that 
his occupation has been from the time of his discharge up to within 
seven years ago (1883) that of an Iron Bundler when in 1833 he moved to 
a farm in Powhatan County, Virginia, from which he returned to this city 
in March 1839 and re'^umed his old occupation that of an Iron Bundler at 
which he is at present engaged. 

During the fall of 1864, while on duty near Piedmont, they were 

92 



ordered to lay down for the night without making any alarm or camp 
fires. Vm Knabe states that during the night a very heavy frost fell 
and when he awoke in the morning he found his shoulders and hips almost 
stiff. He managed to stay around that day but, the next morning was 
compelled to seek relief from the company's surgeon. He, however, found 
himself greatly improved on the first medicine and in a few days was 
again doing service with his company, and stayed with them, until the 
Regiment was mustered out at Vienna C. H. in the spring of '65. After 
his discharge he went to work as an Iron Bundler but was compelled at 
different times, to resort to treatment which was furnished him by Drs. 
Duff 8i Phyloschody and myself the two former of which have however died 
several years ago. When he removed to Va. it was thought that the 
change of climate would be beneficial to his joints, particularly the 
right shoulder, elbow and hip-joint which were sore and inflamed that it 
was impossible for him to raise his hand above his head. This was in 
the spring of 1883, necessitating his withdrawal from manual labor for 
six weeks. 

Any further information you should desire on this point will be 
cheerfully answered by 

Yours truly. 

Dr. A. J. Barchfeld

In 1883 Villiam and Catharine Knabe moved from Pittsburgh, 
Pennsylvania to Powhatan County, Virginia. Catharine Knabe bought a 
large farm described in the following deed:

The foiling letter was written by "Billie", the widow of John V. 
Knabe, written to Louise Van de Reit Maxey, wife of Vernon Maxey: 



"Jan 15th, 1963 



Louise dear. 



It was so nice of you to write me, and I assure you I appreciated 
it so much. 

I had a nice note from Gertrude also, she sent me a small picture 
of her daughter Jane. I know they are proud of her. I have not heard 
from Aunt Sallie for sometime, had not heard of Elsie's death before. 
Had she been sick long? 

My sister had been sick for two years or more. She was in a real 
nice nursing home. They wer all so nice to her , and she did not suffer 
any. She never got over Sam's death & the closing of the store. 

Joan has two lovely children, Curtis, Jr is eight years old and 
Linda Rose is four years old. I thinak Curtis Jr. looks a bit like John 
and is jolly and full of fun. He likes to come over and stay with me 
when he is not going to school. I had a nice note from Margaret Tilman 
also, said Grace 4 family. Bill & family, Parker Si family about 21 in 
all had dinner with her Xmas day, I don't think I would like to cook for 
that many, but guess they all helped. 

Well dear, it was nice to hear from you. 

Lots of love,

MATTOAX PRESBYTER I AH CHURCH 

The following article appeared in the 15 December 1961 issue of the 
Farmville Herald: 

"Mattoax Presbyterian Chruch is located on Genito Road in Giles 
District about eight miles from Amelia Court House. Sunday School rooms 
have been added in recent years. 

In the fall of 1868, six families of Hollanders came to Mattoax 
from Michigan, with the Rev, A. Van Raalte as their leader and 
colonizer. In the spring of 1869, eighty more families came from 
Holland. Thirty of these families settled in the neighborhood of 
Mattoax, and the remainder settled near Amelia Court House. 

A church was organized in July 1869. This was known as the "Dutch- 
Reformed Church of America" . The organization and the installation of 
officers of the church was done by the Rev. Van Raalte and Dominie Bolks 
of New York City, N. Y. The following officers were chosen: elders- Mr. 
Holsobos, Mr. J. Devries, Mr. K. Baltz, and Mr. P. Zuidema, and deacons- 
Mr. G. Van de Reit, Mr. J. Greelings, Mr. P. Van Dyke, and Mr. Donkers. 

In 1870, a Mr. Edward Gleason who owned a farm near Mattoax known 
as "Clifton", gave three acres of land on the south of the Genito Road, 
and about two miles from the Mattoax railroad station. It was given 
with the understanding that it must be used for church and school 
purposes. In the latter part of the same year a log meeting house was 
built on the land. It was built of logs cut by the people and measured 
22 feet by 40 feet. It served the purpose of church and school for many 
years, and was not torn down until about 1907. 

iln December 27, 1780, a preacher was called from Holland, Mich. , 
the Rev. John Huisings. There was a flourishing congregation, but times 
were very hard, and conditions became very discouraging. As a result, 
many of the Dutch settlers left. Some went back to Holland, Mich. , and 
others moved farther west. By 1872, only a dozen of the original 
families remained here. It was difficult to raise enough money to pay 
the pastor and support the church. Early in 1876, Mr. Huisings received 
a call from a church in Nebraska, which he accepted. Vhen he left about 
seven families went with him. 

There were only about five of the original families left to carry 
on the work and to keep the church alive. It seemed that everything 

100 



would come to naught, but a little flicker of light kept burning. Those 
left behind met every Sunday in the church. They sang, prayed, read the 
Bible, and sermons by the Rev, Charles Spurgen were read. Host of the 
sermons were in the Dutch language. Of course these sermons did not have 
the same force and effect as they would have had if they had been 
delivered in person. If it had not been for the goodness of the Rev. 
Hartwell Harrison, who came to preach for them once a month, the church 
could never have held together. He was a Baptist minister and a good 
friend to them. Later a student was engaged to preach for them. 

In the spring of 1885, after due consideration, Mr. G. Van de Reit 
suggested that they unite with the Amelia Presbyterian Church. This was 
agreed upon, and they became Mattoax Presbyterian Church. The following 
were the members: Mr. and Mrs. G. Van de Reit, Mr. and Mrs. Villiam 
Stapelkamp, Miss Josephine Harvie, Mr. and Mrs. M. Zuidema, Mr. and Mrs. 
Peter Zuidema. Elder G. Van de Reit, Mr. and Mrs. V. L. Mason, Mr. and 
Mrs. J. Geerlings, Mrs. W.O. Harvie, Mr. A. T. Leistra. Mr. J. Lelstra, 
and Deacon Villiam Stapelkamp. The Rev. G. H. Denny was the pastor. 

According to Mr. Peter Zuidema, now living in the vicinity, he 
immigrated from Holland with his parents when he was nine years old. 
(He is now in his seventies). There were about 100 families on the 
immigrant train when it reached Mattoax. He said that the Dutch 
minister who promoted the movement to America, and the settlement in 
Amelia was a chaplain in the Federal Army, and saw service in the 
country during the war. As a result, Amelia County was selected as a 
desirable place to plant a colony. 

According to Mr. Zuidema, the original log church, built in 1870, 
was not torn down but was sold about 1907 to a colored man named Jack 
Jones. It was moved about a mile up the Genito Road and located on the 
north side of the road where it now stands, the home of the man who 
purchased it. The logs are now covered with weather-boarding, but in 
all respects it is the same as it was when it served as a church. 

The Rev. George H. Denny was the pastor of the Amelia Church at the 
time of the union of the two churches, and consequently became the 
pastor of the united churches. He was succeeded by the Rev. Joseph R. 
Rennie. who in turn was succeeded by the Rev. D. P. Rogers. 

The next minister was the Rev. Charles W. Kernan. Later when Mr. 
Kernan accepted a call to Morefield. V. Va. , Dr. Christian was the 
supply pastor. The next minister was the Rev. D. D. Wilkinson, who 
organized the Amelia Parish Plan. He was pastor of all the Presbyterian 
Churches In the county, and each church had a student pastor, who came 
out from the Seminary in Richmond and worked under Mr. Wilkinson. When 
Mr. Wilkinson left, he was followed by the Rev. Milton Raid. After a 
while the student plan was given up, and each church was left on its 
own. Mr. Reid staying with the Amelia Church. 

After being without a pastor for a while, the Rev. Harry D. Fainter 
accepted the call November "l3, 1960. He is the present pastor of Pine 
Grove and Mattoax Churches."

LETTER OF PETER ZUIDEMA 

"PETER ZUIDEMA 

3003 Peronne Ave. 

Norfolk, Va 



June 14, 1941 

Mr. W. Vichers, 
Holland. Michigan 

Dear Sir: 

In compliance to your request I am vn"iting a synopsis of the 
Holland Settlement in County of Amelia, State of Virginia. It came 
about in the following manner to the best of my memory. 

In March of 1869 some agent in The Netherlands received a letter 
from Reverend A. C. Van Raalte at the Amelia Court House in Virginia 
telling of the wonderful opportunities there of establishing a Holland 
Colony. That he, Dr. Van Raalte, had been in the South during the war 
between the States and was deeply impressed by the mild and even 
climate, the beauty of the country, the comparatively easy clearing of 
land and it's fertility, and the cheapness in price, as land could be 
bought for from five to te dollars an acres. But, he stressed the fact 
that as all the slaves had been freed, labor was cheap. So he advised 
that those contemplating to come should have enough money to buy some 
land enough money to carry them overe at least one year and not to 
purchase more than they could pay for. Those that came with little or 
no money should either rent land on shares or go to the City, eight 
Richmond or Norfolk, to obtain work. 

Now what Dr. Van Raalte' s reason for coming here was whether he was 
a Chaplain in the Union Army or visiting his son, Ben, who was a soldier 
in the army, I am not sure of. But in the spring of 1869 about fifty 
families left the Netherlands for the New Vorld as they called it. I, 
the writer of this, then a boy of eight years old was among them with my 
father & mother, two sisters and two brothers. The rest went on to 
Amelia Court House ten miles further on, which was located on the then 
known Richmond and Danville R. R. Vhen we arrived we found here were 
some Hollanders already there who welcomed us and provided a good dinner 
for all and boy were we hungry. There also were some at Amelia Court 
House who had previously come with the Dominie from Holland, Michigan 
among whom were a Mr. Brink and family. Veil, we arrived at these 
respective places on the 9th day of May and in the fall some more came 
from Michigan and all were enthused over the prospect of a prosperous 
settlement. According to the traits of true Hollanders they followed 
the example of the Patriarch Abraham of old. The first thing they 
thought of was a church where they could worship the God of their 
fathers according to the dictates of their own conscience and sing the 

102 



good old Psalms in their own tune. 

So, in the spring of 1870 a Dominie Bolks oi New York came here and 
he with Dr. Van Raalte organized a church at Amelia and also one at 
Mattoax. I do not know much about the one at Amelia, but at Mattoax the 
following Elders and Deacons were elected and installed. Elders Henry 
De Vries, M. Hulsabos, Jan Geerlings, and M. Zuidema (my father). 
Deacons Gradus Van der Riet, Klaas Bultje, Teunis De Vries and Pieter 
Van Dyke. Besides these men and their families there were Henry 
Maarten, C. Blink, G. Koster, M. Pluimer, Mr. Mykamp, J. Donkers, T. 
Leistra, Baker Van der Riet, Mr. Bodewyk, H. Koert, Mr. Wierenga, and 
Mr. Biefsma. There were more but I do not recall their names. Now soon 
after the organizing of the church & installation of its officers, they 
got busy building a house of worship. First one hewn of wood, not fancy 
to be sure, but large enough and warm. It served the purpose of church 
service and school. 

Now it seemed all would be well. But, alas, some soon became 
dissatisfied. They either had misunderstood or not heeded Dr. Van 
Raalte' s advice. Many of them came without money and as unskilled 
laborers could not obtain work or at least find work which would pay 
enough to decently live on. So quite a number left in the summer and 
autumn of 1370. Some back to the old country, others to Chicago, New 
Jersey, Iowa, Michigan, and so on. But some before leaving avenged 
their wrath on Dr. Van Raalte and threatened bodily harm, blaming him 
for their own mistakes. Then on top of that 1870 was the driest year 
that had been experienced for many years in Virginia. As a result there 
was a shortage of crops. 

But now let us leave Mattoax for a look at the settlers at Amelia 
Court House. There was not as large a number of Dutch people there as 
there were at Mattoax. The men with their families as I remember were 
Jan Brinks, G. Oldgere, Mr. St. Haver, Oege Spoelstra, J. Veltman and a 
Mr. Leis. There a few others whose names I cannot now recall. But Jan 
Brinks, who was the most prominent and wealthiest of them, and G. 
Oldgers were the two Elders chosen. I do not know who the Deacons were. 
They did not build a house for worship, but held meetings one Sunday at 
one member's home, the next at another, and so on. I was with my lather 
one Sunday at one of those meetings at the home of Mr. Brinks. As a boy 
of nine years then, it was there I saw Dr. Van Raalte, and fine looking 
and mild mannered old gentleman who appeared to me a man in his late 
fifties. There was also at Amelia at that time a Mr. Gillmore who I 
believe was a son-in-law to Dr. van Raalte and also a preacher, as I 
always heard him spoken of as Dominie Gillmore. If I am not mistaken he 
was to be the Professor of the Theological School of Amelia. I remember 
the building well. It was called the Amelia College and was an old time 
building having previously been used for a school before the war. I 
remember only one young man who entered the new seminary as a student, 
and that was young John Brinks who later went to Holland, Michigan to 
complete his studies for the ministry. But the college soon came to 
naught and the building was converted into a hotel. The dissatisfied 

103 



settlers oed so much ado about their disappointments that Dr. Van 

Raalte fearing mob violence went back to Holland, Michigan. This was 
sometime in 1871. A few years later we heard of his death no doubt 
feeling sad and disheartened if not disgusted with the whole scheme of 
which he had fostered such great hopes. I think Dominie Gillmore also 
went with him or went somewhere else, I am not sure, and can give you no 
further information regarding the church at Amelia. 

So now I'll take you back to Mattoax. As stated before, on account 
of failures and disappointments, quite a number left. But there were 
still enough left to keep up the church work. Ve got a preacher from 
Holland, Michigan, a single man by the name of Johannes Huizenga, who 
preached for us Sundays and taught school during the week. He was an 
ideal man for the job as most of his pupils were Dutch and could not 
speak English. He was a great help in getting us to learn the meaning 
of words sooner than we possibly could have without such aid. So 
everything appeared to be for smooth sailing from then on. But again as 
a result of the mistakes that had been made by those who had bought 
land, they had been advised and urged by a man whose name I prefer not 
to name who posed as Hollandche Land Agente (may I explain that it was 
not Mr. Brinks who was also a land agent) to buy about 4 or 5 times as 
much as they could pay for because they were led to believe that land 
would soon be unobainable because of soaring prices. For example, one 
man bought 1200 acres for $25.00 per acre, paid ten thousand cash, 
balance three equal annual installments at 8% interest. Veil, naturally 
to make those payments was as Impossible as fling to the moon on a 
wheelbarrow. So some of those most venturesome farmers lost all they 
had. In the meantime. Dominie Huizenga went on a visit to Michigan and 
a month later returned bringing his bride with him from Zeeland, 
Michigan who before her marriage was a Miss Boonstra. Then I think it 
was during 1876 or 1877 that some more left and went to Nebraska and 
after they had been there a year or so, our Dominie received a call from 
there and accepted. So now we were without a pastor but kept up the 
services in the Holland language by the Elders reading C. H. Spurgeon's 
sermons. Ve then were too few in number to maintain a preacher. Ve 
younger ones had learned enough English to understand the sermons and 
after carrying on half in Dutch, half in English for four more years, a 
Presbyterian minister from Amelia paid us a visit and after having full 
knowledge of the situation, suggested for us to join the East Hanover 
Presbytery with membership and property thus assuring us of regular 
services conducted by a minister. So we called a special meeting of all 
the then remaining members with Mr. G. Van der Riet and M. Zuldema the 
only two remaining Elders presiding. Ve took a vote by ballot over this 
matter and the vote was unanimously in favor of going over to the 
Presbyterian Church and have a certain Mr. Denny for a minister. Soon 
thereafter we were able to build a very nice and commodious church 
building as many of the American people became members and we were in 
much better financial shape than before. The church is now known as the 
Memorial Presbyterian Branch Church of Amelia. 

104 



This being about all the information I am ale to give you about the 
Dutch settlement in Virginia by Dr. Van Raalte, I hope this may be of 
service to you and hope the God of all the earth may ever bless you 
people of Holland and hope that after having served our time here on 
earth, we all hear the welcome voice saying "Come ye blessed of my 
Father, enter thou into the Joy of my Father", the place he now is 
preparing for his saints. 

Sincerely yours 



Peter Zuidema" 



In 1969, the following information was given to Mrs. Elsie Knabe 
about Mattoax Presbyterian Church: 

"In the back of the present pulpit was found a yellowed piece of 
paper with the following notation: 

"This pulpit was made in 1893 by Gradus Van de Reit, from ceiling 
scraps of the present church. Mr. Van de Reit was an Elder of Mattoax 
Church. V. L. Mason, Sr. , also an Elder in Mattoax Church donated the 
heading and corner posts for the pulpit. Deinna and Jane, daughters of 
Mr. Van de Reit, helped their father to build this pulpit. Deinna is 
now Mrs. Irwin Murphy, member of Fine Grove Church. Jane, Mrs. Frank 
Knabe, a member of Genito Church. She with her father and also W. L. 
Mason have passed to the Life beyond."" 



Letter of BOB KOSTERS

Duvall, VA 98019 

"Mrs. Henry Bultje 
Dear Mrs. Bultje 

Vhlle working on my family tree this past winter, I discovered that 
my Great Grandfather (Hendrikus Koster) had gone to Amelia, Virginia in 
1868 with Rev. A. C. Van Raalte and a Mr. Nijkamp and started a colony 
of Dutch Reformed church people. I later learned that there were 4 
other families with this grouip. Ve are now tring to trace a G. Koster 
who also settled there about that time. We believe he is a brother of 
our great grandfather. Ve knew of his existence but have not been able 
to trace his descendants in Holland or America 

My Great Grandfather left Amelia and was living in Patterson, New 
Jersey by the fall of 1871. He homsteaded in Sioux Center, Iowa in 1872 
and most of his relatives remain in that area. My grandfather Gerrit 
Villiam Koster homesteaded in New Holland, South Dakota in 1882 and was 
8 years old when his family went to Virginia. My Father left Dakota 

105 



with his wife and children in 1933 and, we have now lived in Washington 
for many years. 

Pastor Russell Davis of Amelia writes that you are a Descendant of 
the Van de Riets this is interesting as my wife's Uncle Henry Wichers of 
Oak Harbor Washington is also a descendent of those Van de Riets in 
Virginia. His family homesteaded in Dispatch Kansas in the 1870' s. 

Many of the early settlers of Amelia came to South Dakota, Kansas, 
Bebraska & Iowa after they left Virginia. My mother knew Bultjies in 
South Dakota when we lived there, and there are some living in Lynden 
Wash. Possibly these are relatives of yours. 

Some of your early day relatives that went to Kansas in the 1870' s 
(meaning the Van de Riets) dried out and went broke in Kansas about 1887 
and went north to Uew Holland, South Dakota where my mother's 
grandmother and others joined the wagon train and went to Pease, 
Minnesota where they again started a church. My relatives and your 
relatives are still living in that area. 

The reasons I am writing you are: 

1. Any relatives or friends you may have, who might be able to give me 
Information about G. Koster who lived in Amelia. 

2. Pastor Russell Davis says you have a relative in Washington State we 
might contact. 

3. Any information about Hendrikus Koster that might be available 
around Amelia or Mattoax . 

If you can give me any information I would appreciate it very much, 
and if I can give you any information I will gladly do so. I hope to be 
in Amelia some time late this summer. 
P. S. The S was added to Sincerely 

the Koster name by my 
great grandfather Bob Kosters (signed) 

I will enclose some information I got from my brother in Michigan, 
will you please share with Pastor Davis. 

My great grand father came from Rijssen Overisvel Holland"

VRIGHT FAMILY #125 



"HISTORY OF THE VRIGHT FAMILY 

Some of the Wrights have been working on the "Wright Famly Tree" 
for years and have not been able to get beyond our great grandfather. 

According to several stories I have been told, my great 
grandfather, Seymour, and four brothers came to Canada from France. 
Seymour changed his last name to Wright. From Canada, he moved to 
Virginia and settled in Buckingham County. Whether there is any truth 
in these stories, I do not know. 

My great grandfather, Seymour A. Wright was born October 19, 1817. 
His occupation was farming. 

Great Grandfather Wright married Annie Catherine Huddleston of 
Buckingham. Of this marriage, eleven children were born, seven sons and 
four daughters. 

They were Sally Ann Wright who married Berry Huddleston. I do not 
know the names of their children, if any. 

Martha E. Wright was born in 1845. She married Fred Wiggins and 
had three children: Littleberry, Katherine and Clara Scott. 

William Silas Wright was born April 26, 1847. He married Mary 
Caroline Coleman, daughter of Gulielmus and Caroline Coleman and 
granddaughter of Thomas Huddleston. They eleven chldren: Allen, 
Hilride, Mary Shank, Julia Robertson, Lou Howse, Sally Knabe, Kate 
Miller, Emma West, Willie, Fred and Elmo. 

Thomas H. Wright was born in 1849. He married M, H. "Nannie" Heath 
and had four chldren: George, Harriet, Eula Huddleston and John F. 

James A. Wright married Alice B. Childress and had eleven children: 
Jane Jones, Clara Traylor, Rozelia Snead, Seymour A. , Jessie V. Snead, 
Benjamin Harrison, Ottie Cosby, Ruth Jones, Nannie Hopkins Smith, James 
V. , and Tilman, 

John S. Wright married twice. First to Virginia E. Scott and had 
no children. Second to Alice Virginia Hendrick and had five children: 
William S. , Samuel Claiborne, Clara Shank Bailey, Blanch Bangle and John 
James. 

Edward Federson Wright married twice. First to Annie Wiggins and 
had seven children: Annie Madison, Ellen Davis, Agnes Barnard, Leona 
War, Philip, Silas and Isaac. Second time to Gay Clements and had no 
children. 

Uancy J. Wright was born in 1854. Died in 1865. 

Philip A. Wright was born in 1859. Never married. Died in 1894. 

Jefferson D. Wright was born in 1861. Died In 1862. 

107 



Mary C. Wright was born in 1865. Died in 1866. 

For a time, Great Grandfather worked as a miller at Cira in a mill 
located on the Villis River near the Buckingham County line. 

After the Civil Var, Great Grandfather and his family moved to 
Amelia County. He and his sons farmed the Jefferson Place until the 
boys began to marry and go on their own. This farm is located on Route 
609 about three and one half miles north of Amelia Court House. 

Great Granfather Wright died March 28, 1898. He and Great 
Grandmother are buried in the Grub Hill Episcopal Church Cemetery. A 
large field stone marks Great Grandmother's grave. 

My grandfather, William S. Wright, son of Seymour and Annie 
Catherine was born February 26, 1847 in Buckingham County. His 
occupation was farming. 

In the year 1873, Grandfather married Mary Caroline "Molly" Coleman 
of Buckingham. He was twenty six and she was twenty two. Of this 
marriage eleven children were born, five sons and six daughters. They 
were Allen (died in infancy), Hilride, Mary, Julia, Lou, Sallie, Kate, 
Emma, Willie, Fred and Elmo. 

After leaving the Jefferson Place, Grandfather and his familiy 
rented several farms before buying one of their own. Tobacco was their 
chief money crop. 

The Williamson Farm located a few miles from Mattoax was the first 
place they lived. Second, they moved to the Saunders Farm, nearby. 
They were made a much better deal on this farm. Both farms are now a 
part of the Amelia Wildlife Reserve. Third time, to the Glenmore Farm, 
near Chula. Mother often told of their long, cold walks to school in 
the wintertime. The school was in the vicinity of Winterham. From the 
Glenmore Farm, they bought a farm near Genito, bordering on the 
Appomattox River. This farm was called "Locust Hill". The original 
house burned in 1907. 

Grandmother Wright, I have been told, was a great seamstress and 
all her daughters carried on this fine tradition and they passed it on 
to their daughters. 

An amusing anecdote my mother used to tell is how her younger 
brothers refused to do any work without her helping them. She had to 
help on Sundays even if she had a date. This evidently passed on to the 
next generation, too. 

Grandfather and his son, Hllrlde, were often seen at the flour mill 
in a green wagon with a fish painted on it. I wondered why the fish but 
found out the wagon was made by Fish Brothers. I always heard what 
grand cooks Grandmother and her daughters were. Just imagine all that 
good homemade bread, cakes and pies. 

Grandfather and Grandmother lived on Locust Hill until their 
deaths. Grandfather died October 9, 1913 at the age of sixty six. 
Grandmother died January 23, 1918 at the age of sixty eight. Both are 
buried in the Genito Presbyterian Church Cemetery. 

Some of the Wright family lived on the farm until it was sold in 
1969. The farm is now a subdivision known as "Genito Mill Estates", 

108 



consisting mostly of trailers and a few houses dotted about.

ELIZABETH BERGER #12 

EXTRACT OF BIRTH RECORD OF HENRY HISSRICH 
(.translated from German) 

"Extract out of the Register of Births of the evangelical pastorage 
Homberg on the Ohm (Upper Hessia Germany. ) In the year ot Christ 
eighteen hundred and thirty five on the 27th of November, in the morning 
at two o'clock was born, according to creditable reports made, to Lorenz 
Hisserich, a citizen and butcher here, by his wife Susanna, born Thomas, 
the third child, a son, the second son and on the 13th of December he 
was batpized and received the name Heinrich ("Henry.")

"#227 Fisk Ave., Avalon, PA., May 25, 1933 

Dear Cousin Frank & Family; 

It was with deep sadness that we received your message informing us 
that Jane had gone home and her suffering was over. Ve had received a 
card from Sallie in the morning stating that her condition was worse and 
when we saw the messenger we thought of you and yours. 

I am at a loss for words at this time but assure you that you have 
the deepest sympathy of Dean, Betty, Reinhard and I and all of our 
family and all relatives up here in the North. Ve phoned them of your 
loss and Jane's gain for Jesus loved her more than we and Betty said it 
is awful sad; all will miss her, but try to realize how she suffered 
and now is at rest. We all feel bad and our hearts go ouit to Gertrude 
and Louise for they will feel it more. 

Frank, comfort ye one another for Jane ran a good race; fought a 
good fight'; and there is laid up a crown for her; and the rest through 
faith must carry on for she gave to the world and the world and 
community is and will be better for lives such as she lived. 

You all tried to lessen her burden and suffering and give her Joy 
and happiness and I know it is going to be hard and commend all to Him 
who careth for all. Trust only in Him and He will give sufficient grace 
for all your needs. Sorry some of us cannot be with you in person but 
will be in spirit and our prayers go out to all. 

Yours with heartfelt sympathy, 
Reinhard and Family (signed)" 

The following letter was written to Gertrude Virginia Knabe: 

#227 Fisk Ave., Avalon, Pa., Var . 23rd, 1937 

My dear Gertrude Virginia, 

Ve were very sorry to learn of your Illness also for Louise and 
hope both are gai;iing strength and are well again. Ve know jue*: how you 
ielt and trust yoa will not liave any raci^e spells this winter. Betty was 

116 



also laid up about two weeks, but she is better a;5aln. ?sinhard stiil 
has a cold and is taking Cod Liver pills. He needs a good rest, but 
they are still workinu, ovei on the South Side, but don't know how long 
it will last. Lucian is working hard, and instead of working them 
nights now they have changed so some work the regular hours and others 
start at 4; 30 P. M. and wpi k until midnight. The girls are feeling 
pretty good again. Howard Hunter had a spell at A.'-.napolis and was 
operated on for appendicitis and v/as over it about two weeks when they 
went down last Saturday a week. He told them he had a cold and probably 
it was best for Zet would have done a lot of worrying. He is getting 
along 0. K. 

Betty and Lucian are going to moved down on our Street; four doors 
below us. Their rent was increased again and also had to pay the water 
rent if they continued there, but they have got this other place and 
although they will have to get a range and refrigerator they will save 
and have those articles for themselves, and be nearer us. Virginia is 
also going to move. 

The Fred Trusts are taking their upstairs and renting the first 
floor to a young couple. Fred has had considerable trouble with his 
limbs, but is improving. Mary and Gertrude are all right. Dean and I 
were invited guests at a gathering they had of their U. P. group last 
Saturday a week. They go around at each others homes when any of them 
have a birthday and all the eats are prepared and taken and they sure 
have a good time. While the most of them played cards I; all alone; 
played with five women at your game of Monopoly and did I get skinned; 
lost everything although I was the Banker; such arguments; but I am 
still alive. 

Sorry you lost some time at work but trust they certainly did not 
dock you owing to sickness. You know I only wanted to pay for postage 
and as far as the nice things we did for you; don't ever forget what you 
all did for me and you know you love to do all you can for those whom 
you think a great deal of and love dearly. Vhat a speech, but no 
bolonia; all true. You'll say cheese it, but I covered the postage and 
a glass of your favorite Cheese. Ha' Ha' thats one on you. I can 
imagine you letting that glass down as if it were a hot potato. Sorry I 
have been unable to find the films as yet. 

Ve would like nothing better than to motor or get down to your home 
someway this summer, but the house will have to be painted this year and 
some carpentering work done before the painting, but lets hope for I 
sure would like to get down again. I believe I will get my light suit 
that I have been wearing this fall and winter cleaned and then I'll look 
dudeish this spring as I meander down the boulevard. Hope the business 
improves for we are getting three new trucks and purchased the strip of 
ground from the Garage out to the Bridge that goes over Lowries Run that 
you went over to reach the Boulevard. The two houses on our street 
Herron Ave. that the flood wrecked area about torn down now and they are 
tearing down the old barn at the end of our property, and it sure makes 
a big difference with that open space. At the dam they have nine big 

117 



piers up where the gates will be and I'll try someday to get a good 
picture of it for you. 

Ve hope you will look fine in your Easter outfit and wish it was a 
brand new outfit from the top of your head to the soles of your shoes, 
for I know of no young lady that deserves it more than our Gertrude. It 
is as you suggest a little bit inconvenient at times to be without that 
which some term filthy lucre, but don't worry I look just as handsome in 
my old suit; providing it is cleaned and pressed; with a nice clean 
shave and smile; and I know you will look very pretty and if you get the 
organdde; we want a picture of you wearing the same, for you know the 
other picture rests on the living room mantel. 

Ve are glad your Daddy is feeling better and hope he will continue 
to grow stronger and hope he could come up to see us. Glad Albert is 
well and that the booklet was received 0. K. How is Mason? Don't he 
write any at all. He might drop a little note sometime when you write. 
Hope he is well and stronger. 

Ve have had some real pretty weather and then some bad snow storms. 
Last week about i'^ inches of snow and the water started up a little, but 
the rain held off and so far it has not reached flood stage. I enclose 
a few cutting of last years flood and a record of the floods we have had 
here. Ve don't want to see anymore. 

Last night Reinhard and I started to clean wall paper and he did 
the ceilings of the Living and Dining Rooms and part of the walls while 
I did the lower parts of the walls. If I was your height or if you had 
been here you might have given me a boost and then I could have reached 
away up to the ceiling. Ve use the Cleveland Vail Cleanser and it is 
fine; it comes in small cans and is a pretty pink color but when you get 
through with it it is a dirty black. 

Vill be sending you some seed soon. 

Give our best wishes and love to all and remember us to all, and 
hope all are well and will have a delightful Easter time. 

Pick out a goodly portion for yourself. 

Until we hear again. 

Lovingly yours. 

Dean A Reinhard (signed) 

Dean has had a little cold In her chest but is feeling better now; 
but will have to hold her down on this house cleaning. 

Are having our annual canvas and dedication services Sabbath. " 

A second letter to Gertrude: 

'•#227 Fisk Avenue, Avalon, Pa., May 27th, 1937. 

My dear Gertrude Virginia: - 

Ifow don' t be surprised that I write you so soon and before 
answering Louise's letter, but tell her I love her still and will write 
soon. I wanted to let you know that I had mailed to you some seed and 

118 



hope you will be able to get time to plant same and that you will have 
success and get some pretty flowers. The Canna seed will take time and 
then you will have to lift the bulb after the frost and then put them in 
again each year. Did I not send you some canna bulbs with the folks 
when they were up? 

I have been very busy; as usual; but Vm. G. Morrison; the one that 
drove the Southern Beauty to the Depot; took a trip to California and 
was gone from Apr. 4th until the 30th and while he was away we had the 
Flood again. That makes three in about a year and believe you me they 
hurt and test the nerves too much for comfort. About 20" to 24" more 
and it would have been up to the Warehouse & Office floors. Had 40" in 
the Yard and almost two feet on the street in front; came in our Truck. 
Those nine big pier gates that they put in at the Dam are not completed 
as yet and they help to give us more trouble owing to the new increased 
seven foot water stage, but when they are finished probably we will have 
some relief. Sorry you had the Flood also and when we heard about it at 
Richmond our prayers went out for you and your charge with the Buss and 
wish you could get some position that you did not have to work so long 
and hard and more compensation. 

We are all pretty well and Reinhard is feeling better since he has 
been to the Doctor twice. That work with irregular hours and different 
eating poisoned him, but he looked better when home Sabbath. He is down 
at Youngstown, Ohio, again this week and will probably finish again this 
week. Wish he could get a steady position. 

Betty and Lucian have moved and are gradually getting things fixed 
up. Kate Thomas helped her some with the cleaning and they are held up 
for their Range. You know the Range and Refrigerator belonged to the 
apartment and they had to get new ones for themselves. They got a 
beautiful Norge and the Range will be a Norge type also. 

I hope you' 11 never forget to write for you know your Northern 
Pappy misses you a lot and would like to do more for you and 1 believe 
you have felt and realize that you have a big place in our hearts. You 
know these five or six years have been hard ones and much repair work 
had to be done on the home and so we finally had to take care of it and 
the carpenters, plumber, tinner and electrician have about finished and 
the painters will soon come. Dean has had her hands full, but she likes 
what had been done; kitchen sink raised and Tylax put on the wall around 
same; white with black markings in about four inch squares. New lights 
in kitchen, living room downstairs and in the three rooms and hall 
upstairs. New door in hall upstairs going to sky parlor; which I forgot 
to take you up to see. You'll like it I know and it will make things 
easier for Dean. When the painters finish I'll get a picture for you. 

Yes, I worked in the garden a good deal and hope to have many 
pretty flowers. Sent Hazel a bunch of Lillies of the Valley as she 
don't have any flowers. The hot weather made them all come at once. Do 
you have any of the plants? 

Sorry Albert is lonesome and homesick and will try to write him 
soon. You know we all liked you in the Organdie and anyone with good 

119 



taste for daintiness and beauty could not help think it was pretty, but 
with the girl OH' my heart. Glad you had a good time and hope you have 
many of them. I have a clipping of Bill Green's that I expected to send 
to you. 

Sorry you are still having trouble with your eyes. Be careful and 
don't work too hard and read late. Don't get discouraged for look what 
I was up against and have worn them for 44 years and was not as strong 
as you. Trust and do your best and everything will be 0. K. Vish I 
could come down this summer, but the way things are going; labor trouble 
and increased prices are hurting things. 

Mary Trust will graduate next month as will also Margaret and 
Harold Fisher, Hazel's two older children and Billy Hissrich, brother 
Lawrence's boy. 

Zet's folks are expecting to drive down to see Howard before he 
goes on his Cruise and they talked about driving down South so you may 
see them this sumer. Wish Betty and Lucian would get a vacation and 
could put Dean & I in along. 

Hope Uncle John is improving and that Bernice and the Boy and 
growing stronger. Give our love and best wished to all. 

You bet if I get anytime and can manage I try to see you and all 
the folks if possible. 

Lovingly yours, 

Reinhard (signed) 

Yes we had a real nice Mother's Day. Program enclosed. Dean got 
goods for some summer dresses and a little money for something she 
desired. Fred Trust's Uncle Fred died Saturday in his 86th year."

JAJVLES cz:lark:e 

James Clarke was a soldier of the American Revolution, as stated in 
Order Book 12, page 315 of York County, Virginia, 16 June 1834, as 
follows: 

"On the motion of Ann Thomas ordered that it be Certified that it 
appears to the Court from satisfactory evidence adduced, that James 
Clarke who is reputed to have been in the war of the Revolution died 
intestate in the County of York leaving as his only heirs at Law Ann 
Clarke and Philmer Clarke. That Ann Clarke has since the death of the 
said James Clarke intermarried with a man by the name of Thomas Tommas. 
That Philmer Clarke is dead leaving as his Heirs John Clarke, Thomas 
Clarke and Clarentine Clarke who has since intermarried with Edward Hogg 
and Robert Clarke an infant: and that the said Philmer has also left a 
widow Lavinia who is now living." 

Unfortunately, the name of the wife of James Clarke is unknown. 



F'HiLi'TER c:lark:e 

Philmer (Filmer) Clarke was born cl785, probably in Warwick (now 

York) County. Philmer' s first wife was Nancy , born about 17S5. As 

the second male child was often named after the paternal grandfather, 
there is a very strong possibility that Nancy was the daughter of Thomas 
Townsend, who was a shoe and boot maker. Thomas Townsend Clarke was 
also a shoe and boot maker, and probably learned the trade from Thomas 
Townsend. Great great granddaughter Hazel May Guss Bradley still has 
some of the shoemaker's tools owned by Thomas Townsend Clarke. 

His second marriage was to Lavinia Lee, the daughter of John Lee, to 
whom he was married 13 July 1824 in Yorkhampton Parish of York County. 
In York County Court, 18 March 1834, the following information was 
given: " On the motion of Walker Hubbard the court doth certify from 
satisfactory evidence adduced, that John Lee, who is reputed to have 
been an officer in the war of the Revolution, died intestate in the 

County of York, on day In February, 1821, and left issue, Aphsa who 

has intermarried with William Scott, Elizabeth who has intermarried with 
Charles Hansford, Sarah who has intermarried with Walker Hubbard, Martha 
who has intermarried with Robert P. Shelburn, and Lavenia who 
intermarried with Philmer Clarke and who are the only heirs of the said 
John Lee. The said Philmer Clarke is now dead and his wife survives." 

Philmer and Nancy Clarke were the parents of the following known 
children: 

1. John Clarke born clSlO 

2. Thomas Townsend Clarke born ciei3 

3. Clarentine Clarke born cl315 married 2 May 1832 York County 

Edward Hogg 

4. Robert Clarke born June 1322

Wills, daughter of George Wills (who died cl837) & Elizabeth (born 

cl800), on 23 December 1837, and married as his second wife, Parkey Jane 
Valthall on 18 September 1844. Thomas Clarke was a shoemaker by trade. 
His son James Philmer Clarke also became a shoemaker, but probably 
because he could make a better living he left the shoemaking profession 
and became a master carpenter. Georgianna died cl843 in York County and 
Thomas died in 1863 in Villiamsburg, Virginia.

John Wesley Clarke died on 15 October 1393 in a tragic boat accident 
on the James River, which was recorded in the Richmond Times: 

"Mr. John W. Clarke Drowned 

A Very sad accident ocurred Sunday morning between 11 and 12 o'clock, 
when Mr. John W. Clarke, of 1506 Beverly Street, was drowned in the 
James River. Last Thursday morning, Mr. Clarke went to the river on a 
fishing trip near Williams Island about 5 miles above the City, and left 
his boat. Early Sunday morning he returned accompanied by his son 
Thomas and Mr. Frank Wasmer, to remove the boat which was in danger of 
being carried down the stream by the high water into the canal. He did 
not have any oars, but getting into the boat, attempted to pull it 
around into the canal by catching hold of the branches of the bushes 
along the river bank. His companions offered their assistance but Mr. 
Clarke said he thought he could manage the boat alone. He had not gone 
far, however, when the willow branch he had hold of broke, and the boat 
drifted out into the current, which is especially swift at that place. 
He was unable to control the boat without oars, and the craft rapidly 
went down the stream, and dashed the occupant over the falls. The 
unfortunate man was seen standing in the boat, some distance below the 
falls, the boat being nearly full of water. He sunk, and the boat 
floated ashore near the old pumphouse. Searching parties dragged the 
river, and made every effort to recover the body, but up to a late hour 
yesterday afternoon failed, as the water in the river was quite high. 

Mr. Clarke was about fifty three years of age and a carpenter. He 
was a son-in-law of Deputy Collector of Customs Robert B. Pettis, and 
was twice married. He leaves a widow and nine children, five sons and 
four daughters. 

Mr. P. L. Clarke, a son of the deceased, who resides in Charleston, 
S. C. has been telegraphed for, and was expected to reach the city

acquaintances and friends,"

"His Body Not Recovered 



All efforts to recover the body of Mr. John W. Clarke, on account of 
whose death by drowning was published in the yesterday's Times, have 
proved futile. Up to a late hour yesterday the body had not been 
located. "

OOTAV"IU;S LEE "IDAVE" OLARKE 

Octavius Lee "Dave" Clarke was born in Williamsburg, Virginia on 27 
March 1868. When he was 7 years of age his mother died, and the small 
family moved to Richmond, Virginia. After he was married to Annie 
Jackson Wilkinson, on their elopement to North Carolina, they moved to 
the Ridge area of Henrico County. 

He was a stone mason by trade, and like so many others in that 
trade, he became sick from stonecutter's disease. As the disease

JOHJf VESLEY CLARKE #1221 

Mary Adelaide Pettis, the wife of John Vesley Clarke, had a younger 
brother and the following account was written by James Kilpatrlck, 
published in the Richmond lews Leader 17 September 1948: 

"A PROFILE 

'Cap'n Jack' Pettis Retires 

After 58 Years of Service 

As State Capitol Policeman 



Veteran Officer, 84, Served Under 15 Governors; 
Velcomed Many Visitors and Served as Guide 



By JACK KILPATRICK 

Capitol Hill's "Captain Jack" has retired. 

After 58 years and five months on the State Capitol's police force, 
J. P. Pettis has put aside his blue uniform and gone to hs home, on Pine 
Street. 

The veteran police officer, 84 years old on July 29, was offered a 
position at his regular pay as operator of the State Capitol's elevator, 
the State Budget Office said. He at first accepted, and then declined. 
His retirement was made effective September 15. 

Captain Jack came with the State April 5, 1890, when the Capitol 
Square included only the executive mansion, Capitol building and the 
Bell Tower. He served under 15 Governors and loved to tell stories on 
most of them. 
HAD TO CHASE OIE 

For many years he supervised the crew of convicts assigned to 
tending the Capitol Hill lawn. He is fond of recalling that none of 
them escaped while he was in charge, although once in Governor 
Montague's day he had to climb a fence behind the Finance Building and 
chase a fugitve on Main Street to keep his record up. 

Among his favorite recollections is the time in Governor O'Farrall's 
administration that a jockey, returning from the Fair Grounds to a 
stable on Franklin Street, let his horse get out of control. The steed 

138 



crashed head on into a gate near the Bell Tower. It killed the horse 
and hurt the rider. 

"Governor O'Ferrall comes dovra the hill and says, 'Boys, I want all 
the gates around the square taken down. ' That was the end of the 
gates." 

In recent years. Captain Jack has spent much of his time at the 
Capitol's west door, where his bay window and white mustache were as 
familiar as the boxwoods to Capital regulars. There he welcomed 90 per 
cent of the capitol's visitors, directed tourists, answered questions, 
and saw that automobiles kept out of reserved spaces. He is known to 
virtually every politician and officeholder in the State. 

As an authority on the Capitol's grounds, he ranked with the best- 
trained Capitol guides. He once observed that "Constitution oaks" won't 
grow on the hill-at least, 100 of them, planted in 1902, failed to 
survive. He has his doubts on magnolias, too; only two magnolias remain 
of 50 he saw planted in Governor Trinkle's time. 

In World Var I, so the story goes. Captain Jack was charged with 
putting chains on the Capitol's doors to keep out German spies. In 
World War II, he had a somewhat pleasanter time as a one-man welcoming 
committee for thousands of visiting servicemen. 

Last December Captain Jack suffered leg injuries when he was struck 
by a slowly-backing car. He returned to his work in January, walking 
with a cane and resumed his post at the west door. 

He confided several weeks ago, however, that a shift in police 
assignments might mean night work for hiim, and he didn't want to 
attempt it. The alternate job of Capitol elevator operator five days a 
week with holidays off, at first appeared to be the solution. Then the 
Budget Office said he decided simply to retire. 

"It's like cutting down one of the trees," a Capitol worker said. 
"The place won't look the same."

FRANK ROLLINS CLARKE #12242 

Frank Rollins Clarke was born in Villiamsburg on 10 November 1875 
and lived in the same house until his death on 23 September 1951, Vhen 
his father died in 1923 he bought out the interests of his brothers and 
sisters. He learned the trade of a shoemaker, but soon found it more 
lucrative to go into carpentry. After his apprenticeship in carpentry, 
in time he became a building contractor and built a number of houses in 
the Villiamsburg area. On one occasion, he built a house several miles 
from his home, and it was necessary to walk to work and home again after 
working all day! 

Vhen he was offered the job of superintendent of building 
construction and maintenance at Eastern State Hospital, he accepted the 
position which he held until his retirement. He was responsible for the 
construction of all new buildings, as well as maintenance. 

Frank also loved to hunt and trap wild game, some of which he sold, 
with the rest helping out with the family food supply. For other extra 
income he had a Job of firing the furnace for for some ladies who lived 
across the street from his house. His wife, Irene, also did clothing 
alterations for ladies of Villiamsburg, and continued until the time of 
her death at the age of 33. This income was very important to her after 
the death of of her husband. 



JAMES VILLIAM CLARK #122424 

James William Clark was born in the Clark family home on 20 April 
1920. School was a place he went, but admittedly, he confessed that his 
favorite subjects were shop and gym. After being drafted into the 
military service, during World War II, and completing his tour of duty, 

140 



he had the opportunity of going to college under the GI bill. He was 
accepted into the College of Villiam and Jtary, after passing an entrance 
examination, and became the first of his family to get a degree from a 
university. In 1955 he moved to Richmond, where he was employed in the 
accounting department of a paper manufacturing company. In 1958 he met 
his future wife, Janet Sutton Jolly, at a basketball game between 
Villiam and Mary College and University of Richmond. They were married 
six months later at the Methodist church in her home town of South Hill, 
Virginia. He was raised as a Baptist and is active in River Road 
Baptist Church, in Richmond, Virginia 



CLARENTINE CLARKE #123 



Upon the death of her father, Thomas Townsend Clarke, Clarentine, 
being a minor, chose her guardian, as follows: 

"21 May 1832 Clarentine Clarke Infant Orphan of Philmer Clarke 
deceased with the consent and approbation of the Court chose Edward Hogg 
for her guardian. Whereupon the said Edward Hogg together with Lewis 
Hogg for his security entered into and acknowledged their bond in the 
penalty of five hundred dollars for securing the said Orphan's estate of 
indemnifying the Courtt." 
ORDER BOOK 12, page 81 York Co., VA. 

A granddaughter "related some of the Civil War experiences of her 
grandmother, Clarentine Clark Hogg and her family. At the outbreak of 
the war, her oldest son, Enos was at the College of Villiam and Mary as 
an adult student (being 25 years old) or engaged in some other 
educational pursuit. He and the second son, George, who was scarcely 18 
years of age, soon joined the army of the Southern Confederacy. Jackson 
Tolliver, one of the slaves belonging to the family, went with them. He 
cooked and washed for the soldiers, and there was such a bond of 
affection between master and slave, that as long as both lived George 
Hogg would have divided his scant holdings with Jackson if he had need. 

The oldest daughter died, and the mother, with her three young 
children, Tommy, Mary Lizzie and Amanda went back to Viiliamsburg to her 
parents home. During the Peninsula Campaign of the Civil War, this Hcgg 
plantation was overrun, by the Northern soldiers. The home was 
ransacked, and pillaged, the house burned, the fences destroyed, all 
livestock was taken and the once prosperous farm was reduced to ruin. 
Before the mother left for Viiliamsburg she buried the family silver in 
a corner of the garden for safe-keeping from the enemy. After the war, 
it was never found. Whether the Yankees found it, or the freed slaves 
dug it up, no one ever knew. After the war, the land was divided into 
six shares, for the five children and the widow, and in time it was sold 
in small homesites to the freed negroes."

Nicholas Wilkinson was born In the early years oi 1700. It Is 
questionable where he was born, with speculation that it might have been 
in Charles City County, Surry County, or Henrico County. 

The first documented information about Nicholas was in 1735 in 
Goochland County, Virginia, when he was listed on the tithe lists along 
with his brother, William. Nicholas was living in Southam Parish, 
Cumberland County on Mahook Creek. In 1777, this portion of Cumberland 
County became part of the new County of Powhatan. Today the property is 
located south of the James River and west of State Route 522, on the 
North side of county highway #517. Before 1728 the property was part of 
Henrico County. 

While several tracts of land were purchased by the Wilkinson family, 
some were probably purchased before 1727, while the land was still in 
Henrico County. All court records of Henrico County for this period 
have been destroyed, so no deeds are known to exist. It is interesting 
to note that while there is no record of Nicholas buying any land, he 
transferred to son James 200 acres of land on 3 March 1776, recorded in 
deed book 5, page 410 of Cumberland County. When James Wilkinson and 
wife, Jane, sold the land to Charles Woodson on 13 May 1780, the 
property was described in the deed as being the old home place, located 
on Mahook Creek. Later on 10 April 1790 he transferred 25 acres of land 
to son-in-law, Joel Owen. In his will he gave son Thomas 100 acres of 
land, and also 100 acres of land to daughter Mary Owen. While his 
brother William (only purchase of land still on record) bought 350 acres 
of land in 1732 from Agnes Noland, he gave nephew Thomas Wilkinson 100 
acres of land and nephew John Wilkinson 300 acres of land. James 
Wilkinson, a son of Nicholas, only had 200 acres of land, transferred a 
total of 374 acres of land before his death. From the large acreage 
owned by the families, it is evident that they were a family of means; 
and family tradition attests to the fact that the Wilkinson's were 
people "with money". 

Much tobacco was grown in Powhatan County, and this was probably the 
main crop of Nicholas. While he may have sold some of the tobacco at 
other warehouses, he is known to have sold tobacco to the Rocky Ridge 
Warehouse, located in present southside Richmond, Virginia. Unfortu- 
nately, the record shows that part of his tobacco, valued at 10 pounds 
17 shillings and 20 pence, was either lost or stolen from the warehouse. 

While he probably had more brothers, and possibly sisters, the only 
one recorded was William. The only record of William, in Cumberland 
County, concerns the transfer of land to Thomas Wilkinson, the son of 
Nicholas Wilkinson, his brother. Another Wilkinson, Peter, is listed in 
early records, but it is unknown, whether he was a brother, or son of 
one of the listed Wilkinsons. 

During the Revolutionary War, a Nicholas took an oath of allegiance 
to those seeking independence from England. It is not certain if this 
was Nicholas, the father, or Nicholas, the son, but also John, Peter and 

143 



James Vilkinson also signed the oath of allej!;lance In Powhatan County. 

While his wife (or wlve's?) Is not known, Nicholas was the father of 
the following known children: 

1 Joseph Wilkinson was born 12 May 1729 married (1) Mary 

(2) Penelope Parsons and (3) 26 December 1808 Rhoda 
Lockett. He later moved to Bedford County, Virginia 

2 William Wilkinson was born about 1735 married (1) Lurana Perkins, 

and (2) 11 July 1761 Sarah Franklin as his second wife. 
They moved to Mecklenburg in 1770 

3 Thomas Wilkinson was born about 1740, and died in 1819. His 

first wife was Mollie . He lived and died in 

Powhatan County. 

4 Nicholas Wilkinson, Jr. was a private in Capt. John Mosby's 

Company stationed in Cumberland Old Courthouse 

5 John Wilkinson was born about 1745 and died 16 July 1795 in 

Powhatan County, he married Janey . 

6 Mary Wilkinson was born about 1745. She married on August 29, 

1765 Joel Owen. It is believed they later moved to Bedford 
County, Virginia 

7 Agnes Wilkinson was born about 1746. She married on October 28, 

1766 William Owen. They later are believed to have moved to 
Bedford County, Virginia. 

8 James Wilkinson was born about 1735 

On Hay 12, 1786, the will of Nicholas Wilkinson was written, and was 
recorded April 16, 1795. The will follows: 

"In the name of God, Amen. I Nicholas Wilkinson of the County of 
Powhatan be of a sound mind and perfect in my sense and reason 
considering the frailty and shortness of this transitory life and that 
it is appointed for all men once to die and being of an advanced Age

the land and plantation which I formerly lent him provided my son Thomas 
shall pay unto my son Joseph Wilkinson ten pounds and unto my son John 
Wilkinson five pounds and unto my daughter Agnes Owen, wife of William 
Owen ten pounds current money and shall my said son Thomas not incline 
to accept of the said land and pay the said mentioned sums of money then 
my Will is that the said one hundred acres of land be sold to the best 
advantage and the money procured by the sale thereof to be equally 
divided among my sons John Wilkinson, Joseph Wilkinson, Thomas 

144 



Vilkinson and my daughter Agnes Owen to them and their heirs forever, 
but should my son Thomas Vllkinson choose to keep the said land and pay 
the said several sums of money, then I give him my said son Thomas the 
said one hundred acres of land already described to him and to his heirs 
forever. 

Item: I lend unto my daughter Mary Owen the land and plantation 
whereon I now live being one hundred acres during her natural life and 
at her decease I give and bequeath the said land and plantation to my 
grandson Elisha Owen, son of my said daughter Mary Owen to him and his 
heirs forever. 

Item: I give and bequeath unto my son William Vllkinson five 
shillings current money or the value thereof to be paid to him by my 
executors hereafter mentioned to him and to his heirs forever. 

Item: Vill is that the residue of my estate shall be equally 
divided among my three sons, to wit; John Vllkinson, Joseph Vllkinson, 
Thomas Vllkinson and my two daughters Agnes Owen and Mary Owen to them 
and to their heirs forever. 

Item: As I have formerly given to my son James Vllkinson equally to 
any of the rest of my children, I do not now devise anything more to 
him. 

And lastly I constitute and appoint my son John Vllkinson, my son- 
in-law Joel Owen and Vllliam Clarke to be the executors of this my Last

on the oath of Gallio Vllkinson and Susannah Owen, 



Thomas Vllkinson was born about 1740. His wife was listed as 
Mollie, probably a nickname, without the last name, marriage place, or 
place of birth known. He received 140 acres of land from his uncle, 
Vllliam Vllkinson. as recorded in Cumberland County records, on November 
5, 1775. The property was located next to property of Paul Mlchaux, 
Vllliam Fleming and Villlam Vllkinson, located In present day Powhatan 
County. From his father's will he received 100 acres of land, upon 
which his father lived at the time of his death.

In 1305, a neighbor, Joseph Mayo sought permission to build a water 
grist mill on Mahook Creek. As the pond created, would flood some of 
Thomas Wilkinson's land, the matter came up in the January Circuit Court 
of Powhatan County, and is recorded as follows: 

"January Court 1806 

An Inquest taken by virtue of a writ of ad quod dannunm obtained by 
Joseph Mayo uon his application for erecting a water Grist Mill on 
Mahook Creek in this County, was this day returned , read, and ordered 
to be recorded, and is as follows. "Inquisition taken by virtue of a 
writ of ad quod dannunm from the court of Powhatan County, dated 
December 21st, 1805, directed to the Sheriff of the said county,

The will was presented in Powhatan Court 15 July 1819 and ordered to 
be recorded. 

As executor of the will of his father Thomas Vilkinson, Gallio had 
problems as a suit against him on 13 April 1832, which follows, will 
testify: 

149 



"To the Honorable Creed Taylor, Judge of superior court of Chancery- 
-Richmond district. Your complainants William Vatson and Fanny his 
wife, George Watson and Comfort his wife which said Fanny Watson and 
Comfort Watson are daughters of Thomas Wilkinson-late of Powhatan County 
and devisees named in the last will and testament of the said Thomas 
Wilkinson deceased. And also Jenny Corker widow of Robert Corker who is 
likewise a daughter of said Thomas Wilkinson and also a devisee, named 
in his will, Tabitha Evans, wife of Thomas Evans and Judy Cosby widow of 
William Cosby and Polly Wilkinson. All of whom (to wit the female 
plaintiffs) and daughters of the said Thomas Wilkinson and Named in his 
last will and testament which said Thomas Wilkinson deed shortly after 
making the said will. And it appears from the copy the record thereof 
from the clerk of the county court of Powhatan that the said will was 
duly proved and ordered to be recorded by the court of the aforesaid 
County on the 15th day of July 1819 and that Gallio Wilkinson who was 
appointed executor of the said last will and testament by the testator 
was granted a certificate for the obtaining probate of the same on the 
ISth day of November 1819 and he gave security as required by the court 
of the county aforesaid. And your complainants further state that in 
the sd last will and testament of Thomas Wilkinson the testator, he gave 
a great portion of the property of which he died possessed to his wife 
Molly Wilkinson for her natural life and after her decease to satisfy 
specific legatees as named in the said will. And they further state 
that the said Molly Wilkinson is since dead and they have applied to the 
said executor for the portion, or portions which to your complainants 
justly belongs to the said Thomas Wilkinson by his last will and 
testament (and which your complainants prays may be made a part of this 
bill a copy whereof is filed herewith) after several specific devises 
gave to your complainants Fanny Watson, Tabitha Evans, Comfort Watson, 
Jane Corker, Judith Cosby, and Polly Wilkinson and to John Wilkinson (a 
son of the testator) the proceeds of the sale of the personal estate 
after the death of Molly Wilkinson. And they further state that the 
said Molly Wilkinson is since dead the precise time of her death not now 
known to your complainants and that the said Gallio Wilkinson has 
disposed of the personal property as directed in the bill by the 
testator. But the amount of the sales are unknown to your complainants 
and the executor Gallio Wilkinson has refused to give your complainants 
any account either of the amount of sales by him made under the 
direction of the will or any account of the amount of property remaining 
at the death of said Molly Wilkinson and has even refused to pay any of 
the money received to your complainants while your complainants have 
reason to believe that the said Gallio Wilkinson executor has received 
upwards of eight hundred dollars and they further believe that he has 
kept the whole amount in his own hand, and applied the same to his own 
immediate use in direct opposition to the wish of the testator to Just 
claims of your complainants and defiance of all right and justice. Your 
complainants therefore pray the interposition of the court of chancery 
to compell the said executor to make a dividend of the said proceeds of 

150 



the estate their divisee In the clause of will referred to. And that 
the said executor answer and say upon oath what the amount of property 
was sold and whether or not the same has he absorbed in the payment of 
the debts of the estate and what sum remains. And that he be compelled 
full and fair answer to make and to state the amount of the appraisement 
of the property left by the testator at his death. As well as the 
Amount of the sales made by him under the aforesaid clause of the will. 
And your complainants further states that the aforesaid named person who 
are your complainants (to wit) Fanny Vatson, Tabitha, Comfort Vatson, 
Jane Corker, Judith Cosby, Polly Wilkinson 4 John Wilkinson (which said 
John Wilkinson son of the testator and brother to the female plaintiffs 
in this bill died sometime previous to the making of the will were left 
residuary legatees and Joint devisees in the said clause of the will and 
testament aforesaid of all the proceeds or money arising from the sales 
of the personal estate after the death of Molly Wilkinson widow of the 
testator. And your complainants knowing that the said John Wilkinson 
died sometime previous to making the said will. As appears from the 
will itself and your complainants therefore believe in equity and 
Justice and of right that they ought to have equal portions of the 
proceeds of the personal estate which was thus omitted to be 
specifically devised by the previous death of the testators son John 
Wilkinson to the making of the said will. They therefore pray the court 
to compell the said executor to account with your complainants as to 
that portion of the said amount of money which arose from the sale of 
the property disposed of by the s'd executor and unaccounted for by him. 
And that he be compelled to account for the several portions due your 
complainants of the personal estate which was devised to John Wilkinson 
deceased if it be the opinion of the court that they are entitle to the 
same. And that the said executor be compelled also to answer upon oath 
to all the allegations of the bill and to give such a response to the 
same as in the opinion of the court will disclose all the facts relative 
to the several allegations of this bill whether specially named or not., 
so as to enable the court to decree as may be thought Just and equitable 
your complainants will ever pray. 

James H. Simeron for pltf." 
Case 4, Box 33, Powhatan Circuit Court, Powhatan, VA 

In reply Galleo Wilkinson replied to the court:

will and testament and shortly afterwards died; that the will was 
proven, and admitted to Record by the county court of Powhatan on the 
15th day of July 1819, that in said Will the testator makes many devises 
and bequests, and among them the following "Item. It is my will, that I 
give and bequeath to my son Nicholas Wilkinson the other half of my said 

151 



Tract of land, being the uppermost half lying bordering on the main 
River Road, to him and his heirs and assigns forever. Item. It is my 
will that in conveyence of my one half of my tract of land to my said 
son Nicholas Wilkinson that he pay to my Estate the sum of six hundred 
dollars." For greater certainty however your orator herewith files a 
copy of the said will and prays that the same may be taken as a part of 
this Bill- it is marked A. Your Orator avers that notwithstanding his 
diligent efforts to induce the said Nicholas Wilkinson to pay the said 
sum of six hundred dollars he never did pay any part thereof during his 
life, having died some 12 or 18 months since, and his children refuse to 
pay the same still, that he was very poor for many years and died 
insolvent, wherefore your Orator is advised that the said land belongs 
to the Estate of his testator, and aught to be divided, or sold and the 
proceeds divided, among the heirs of Thomas Wilkinson dec, that they are 

so numerous however, that a division of cannot be made without 

entire dest interest of all and each of them; that 

Thomas W. Wilkinson died without issue in the life time of the testator, 
and his (the testator) widow, Molley Wilkinson, has since departed this 
life; that the following children survived him namely: your 1. Orator, 
2. Polly Wilkinson, 3. lessee Wilkinson, 4. George Wilkinson, 5. Fanny, 
wife of William Watson, 6. Tabitha, wife of Thomas Evans, 7. Comfort, 
wife of George Watson, 8. Jane, wife of Robert Corker, 9. Judith, wife 
of William Causby, and 10. John Wilkinson, and 11. Nicholas Wilkinson; 
that Wm. Watson and Fanny his wife are still living; that Polly has 
since intermarried with George Harding and they are living; that Thomas 
Evans and Tabitha his wife, George Watson and Comfort his wife, Jessee 
Wilkinson, and John Wilkinson have all departed this life and their 
heirs respectively are wholly unknown to your Orator personally, nor 
does he know where they reside; that William Causby has departed this 
life leaving Judith Causby his widow, now living; that Robert Corker has 
also departed this life leaving Jane his widow who is yet living; and 
that Nicholas Wilkinson has also departed this life leaving a widow 
Polly Wilkinson and the following children now living, namely; Lisbon

Wilkinson, and Frances Wilkinson, the last four of whom are infants; and 
that George Wilkinson has also departed this life leaving the following 
chldren now living, Deucalion Wilkinson and Preston Wilkinson. 

In tender consideration of the premises, and for as much as relief 
can only be obtained in a court of Equity where matters of this sort are 

properly cognizable your Orator prays William Watson and Fanny 

his wife formerly Fanny Wilkinson, Judith Cosby widow of William Causby, 
former Judith Wilkinson Jenny Corker widow of Robert Corker, deed,

Tachaner Michaux (Seals) 

Alexander Swann" 

The will was presented to Powhatan Court 2nd day of March 1857 and 
recorded. After Daniel Wilkinson declined to be the administrator of 
the estate Tachaner Michaux was appointed administrator. 



William H. Wilkinson was born in Powhatan County, Virginia. He died 
5 July, 1873 in the same County. He secured a marriage license, on 
January 14, 1839 in Powhatan County, and married Mary Elizabeth Cosby. 
He was a farmer all of his life. After the death of his father, he 
purchased several tracts of land before buying the plantation of 200 
acres, where he lived until the time of his death. While not recorded 
on Powhatan County records, his great granddaughter, Geneva Clarke Guss, 
remembered the name, fondly, of the plantation, as being the "Milky Way 

156 



Plantation". In the post Civil Var era. times were hard for William 
just as they were for most in the South. He took advantage of Virginia 
law by declaring his property a homestead, which is recorded in Powhatan 
County court, which follows: 

"Know all men by these presents- That I, William H. Wilkinson of 
the County of Powhatan, State of Virginia, do hereby declare my 
intention to claim as a homestead pursuant to the provisions of the Act 
of Assembly of Virginia approved the 27th day of June 1870, and in 
pursuance of the XI Article of the Constitution of the State of 
Virginia; the property real 8t personal hereinafter mentioned and 
described Viz. 

A certain tract of land in Powhatan County, on which I now reside, 
containing 200 acres, adjoining the lands of Matilda Forsee, Rob Adkins, 
and others- Valued at $6 per acre- $1200. 

Two Mules Valued at $75. each 150. 

Two Cows (3i 1 heifer Do 50. 

One Wagon 10. 

3 Plows 06. 

1 Bureau 10. 

3/4 of Crop of Tobacco 200. 

Total 1626. 

All of which property real and personal, I hereby declare my 
intention to hold as a homestead subject to all the provisions, of the 
Constitution and laws of Virginia. 

In Witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 23rd 
day of February 1871. 

Wm. H. Wilkinson (seal)" 

By the time of his death land was almost without value, and there 
was nothing left for his heirs, except the dower for the widow. He died 
without leaving a will and the property was sold by commissioners 
appointed by the County as follows: 

" In obedience to an order made in this cause at the Sept Term 1877 
we proceeded to advertise the land therein directed to be sold at 
Powhatan Court House at Public Auction as directed by the decree. At 
the first and second offering we were unable to make a sale. At the 
last offering on the 1st April 1878, it was knocked out to Vm. S. Archer 
at the price of $290. There are 170 acres of land the reversion in 30 
acres the Widow's Dower. The land is assessed at $5.00 per acre. The 
Notices were duly posted and the sale well attended. 

We required $70 Cash which was paid and for the balance bonds taken

BEVERLY RANDOLPH VILKINSON #13183 

Beverly's grandchildren remember him as a real gentleman, and the man they 
called "Pappy". He liked to be well dressed, especially in his Confederate 
uniform. He was well liked and respected and thought of as a real gentleman. In 
his last years, he slept on a bread box, on the sidewalk near his store. 

Beverly R. Wilkinson was an infantry private in the War of Secession (the 
Civil War) in Company K, 59 Virginia P.egt. , of the Confederate States of America. 
He enlisted on 20 May 1862 and was mustered out of service in January and February 
of 1865. Family information states that he left service at Appomattox C. H. in 
1865. While in service, he suffered some flesh wounds. Later in life he had a 
great deal of suffering due to a double hernia. 

"Callie", when a young child of 12, fell out of a cherry tree and broke her 
leg, which was later amputated. Afterwards, she used a crutch to assist herself 
in getting around, and was little incapacitated by her disability. 



L. W. REAMS #13356 

Lilburn Washington Reams, in April 1864, borrowed a gun and Joined the 
Confederate Army to guard the railroad bridge across the Appomattox River near his 
home, to prevent its destruction by the Federals. He entered the regular forces 
as soon as he reached the age of eighteen. He was on the James River below 
Richmond when General Lee began evacuation of the city. He was a corporal in 
Captain Tabb's Co., Co. I, First Regt. , Farinholt's Virginia Reserves. He owned a 
large farm in Powhatan Co. , Virginia. He was postmaster at Lilburn Post Office, 
VA. He was a deacon in Red Lane Baptist Church. 

"Washington 

Genealogy of Lilburn Reams 

Made out this 7th day March 1937. Lilburn Reams born in Powhatan Co. Va July 
13, 1846. L. W. Reams' father Dinwiddle Reams was born in Chesterfield Co. Va. 
Dinwiddle's father was born in Chesterfield Co. Va. His name was Erasmus Reams. 
L. W. Reams' mother was Roberta Wilkinson. Her father was Nicholas Wilkinson of 
Powhatan Co. Her mother was a Miss Stoaks. 

I do not remember the name of my great grandfather, but he lived near Michaux 
Ferry in Powhatan on the James River and I think he was Somewhat wealthy. Judge 
Dabny told me that he in Searching the records of Powhatan County found that a 
Wilkinson, one of my ancestors from England took up or had granted to him all 
lands from above Michaux Ferry in Powhatan to Dreweys Bluff below Manchester. I 
suppose that the whole line of Wilkinson of our Wilkinson Kin could be traced in 
the records of Powhatan Co. 

You may be able to guess at what you can not read of this but when I feel 
better I can give you one better written and more complete if you wish. 



My mother inherited some property from her Grandfather Wilkinson, and some 

187 



from her Uncle Samuel Staaks. I supposed that my Grand Mother Wilkinson's family 
were fine people, so far as I have learned. I suppose that two Reamses (I suppose 
they were brothers) came from England and one settled in Dinwiddle Co. , VA and one 
in Chesterfield, VA. There are more Reamses in Dinwiddle than any other place. I 
do not know from which County we sprang from. My grandfather Reams had two Bro. 
Bartlet and John. John was a Baptist Preacher and went to Kentucky and moved from 
there to Chicago. I know of no Reams that gained any great promdnence, nor of any 
that were charged with crime. Some of my Grandfather Reams offspring have been 
highly educated and some now hold somewhat high offices in Va. I have heard of 
one Reams at least that was quite wealthy. I can give many names of people living 
and that I have known that I would not be ashamed of. But it does not matter so 

much as to our as to what we are. I realize that a poore statement I 

might do better but I am not feeling altogether well. 

Your loving father L. V. Reams"

WILLIE D. WILKINSON 133B112 

"The first Wilkinson in Cumberland County was Deucalion Wilkinson who, in 
1855, left the coal mining business in Midlothian and purchased Trenton Mills. At 
Trenton the Wilkinsons operated the mill, a store, post office and later a school. 

Deucalion and his wife, Jane Hunter Bass, had four children. Two were 
daughters, Rosa who married Ellis Putney and Mary who married Clifford Bondurant. 
The two sons were Richard and George Thomas. 

Richard, the older, was in partnership with his father. He never married and 
died within a few weeks of his father in 1860. 

George T. married Sarah and operated Trenton Mills, serving as postmaster for 
many years. George had two sons. Son Hunter ran the mill and later sold the mill 

188 



property. 

Son Villie Deucalion received a degree in Law from the University of Richmond 
but opted to return to Trenton instead of practicing law. Villie married Xary 
Hanes, daughter of Judge J. Garland Hanes of Buckingham. She was educated at the 
State Normal School (later Longwood College). Villie and Mary together opearted a 
school which Mary continued after Villie' s early death in 1891. Villie and Mary 
had four children, a daughter and three sons. The daughter, Mary Frances, married 
J. Y. Clark and they moved to Missouri. The sons were George G. who married Maude 
Stuart, Hunter B. who married Mae Edens, and Villie D. who married Annie Carter 
Adams. George moved to Cumberland Court House and became a partner in Flippen's 
Store. Hunter farmed at Trenton, then worked for the Postal Service in Vest 
Point. Villie, who was born after his father's death, farmed at Trenton, then 
later at Sommerset, his wife's home. Villie and Annie had two children. Their 
daughter, Mary Hanes (Kitty) married Russell Garnett and had one son, Villiam 
Russell, who married Mary Ann Thompson. Their son, Harry Blackwell (H. B. ) , 
married Ruby Blanton and had one daughter, Sarah Adams, who married Arthur Powers, 
by Sarah V. Powers", A HISTORY OF CUMBERLAJ3D COUNTY. 



VILLIAM DUCALION VILKISSON #13B22 

"Vould two young women who met as students at the Farmville Female Institute 
in the nineteenth century have an inkling that years later their paths would cross 
again and that the daughter of one would marry the son of the other? Yet, it 
happened! 

Amy Elizabeth Barber married David Stuart in 1887. On a farm in upper 
Cumberland County they reared a family, one of whom was Maude Blamires Stuart, 
born December 2, 1394 

Mary Hanes married Villiam Ducalion Vilkinson in 1882. They made their home 
at "Trenton" in lower Cumberland County. Of that union, George Garland Vilkinson 
was born on November 17, 1886. 

On October 7, 1913, Maude Stuart and George Vilkinson were married in Center 
Presbyterian Church in Cumberland Courthouse. They settled into village life and 
reared a family of three daughters: Mary Stuart, Elizabeth Hanes and Nellie 
Garland. 

My father's life centered around three things: his family, Payne Memorial 
Methodist Church and his partnership in 0. G. Flippen and Co. - one of the village 
general stores. My mother spent her unending energies rearing us to love life and 
live it fully with respect for true values. She enjoyed her home and made it a 
secure and comfortable place for her family. She was active in church life and 
taught the nursery and beginners' class at Payne Memorial for 25 years. 

Our home was a warm, happy place where discipline was not spared when 
necessary. Visitors frequented our table where political, religious or local 
matters were discussed. These discussions often extended into the living room 
before an open fire or onto the porch in warm weather. It was a stimulating 
environment and one that prepared us to make decisions as we left the security of 
tnat home. 

189 



Mary Stuart left home to attend Blackstone College and then to work in 
Washington, D. C. , for the federal government where she met and married Ernest 
Edward Clulow. They had two children: Cornelia Jean and George Edward. She is 
now living in Texas with her husband Henry Stallings. 

After attending Longwood College, Nellie Garland moved to Massachusetts to 
learn the clothes-buying trade. Her health made it necessary to return to 
Cumberland where she died in 1946. 

Elizabeth Hanes, "Bitsy", attended Duke University to become the nurse she 
had dreamed about for years. At Duke she met Everett Tompkins. They married and 
after six years in Massachusetts came back to Virginia to live in Chesterfield 
County where they have been for 35 years. Barry & Everett, Jr. , are their two 
sons. 

In 1966, George Garland Wilkinson died after a life dedicated to interest and 
concern for Cumberland and its people. 

Maude Stuart Wilkinson remained in Cumberland for a few years and then sold 
the home she had lived in for most of her life since she was eleven years old and 
moved to Richmond. After eight years of apartment living, she now lives in a 
private home with a family who encourages her reminiscing about her long and 
usefullife in Cumberland,

THE OOSBY FAMIILY 

"The family of Cosby is of Saxon origin and is stated by Sir Bernard 
Burke to have possessed the Lordship of Cossibye County, Leicester, 
previously to the Norman Conquest (October 14, 1066). It first became 
settled in Ireland temporarily in the time of Queen Mary, 1553-58. 



ROBERT COSSIBYE 

Robert Cossibye, 1412, (son of John Cossibye, grandson of Robert 
Cossibye of Cossibye County, Leicester), of Hermaston in Lincolnshire, 
was living in 1456. He married Isabel, daughter and heiress of Ralph 
Pare, Esq., of Great Leake, Nottinghamshire, (by Isabel, his wife, 
daughter and heiress of John Blake of Hermaston) and a son and heir, 
John Cosbie. 



JOHN COSBIE 

John Cosbie married Mable, daughter of Agard of Foston, in 
Nottinghamshire, and had two sons. Namely: 

1. Richard Cosbie of Great Leake, whose only daughter and heiress, 
Bridget Cosby, became the wife of Villiam Towers, gentleman of Tunnecke) 

2. Francis Cosbie. 



FRANCIS COSBIE 

Francis Cosbie was born in 1510 and died in 1580, the patriarch of 
the family in Ireland, a man famed for personal courage as well as for 
civil and military talents. Vhen young, he served in the wars of King 
Henry VIII in England. 

His abandonment of his native soil arose from the downfall of the 
Protector Somerset whose daughter, Mary, widow of Sir Henry Peyton, 
Knt., he married. After the disgrace and death of that nobleman, his 
immediate connections were excluded from and deprived of all hope or 
preferment. He went to the low country. Here, in the land of his 
adoption, he soon found the opportunity of establishing a reputation 
which he had despaired of effecting in the land of his birth. 

He, General Cosbie, became an active defender of the Pale against 
the inroads of the Irish; his vigilance, zeal, and success attracting 
the attention of the government, he was appointed by Queen Mary, under 
her Majesty's sign manual, dated February 14, 1558, General of the Kern, 
a position of great trust and importance in those times. In 1559 he 

195 



represented the borough of Thomaston in Parliament, when he was 
constituted by Elizabeth, sheriff of the County of Kildare, being 
dominated in his patent, dated 24th of January in the first year of her 
Majesty's reign "of Evan," now "Munster Evan," which place he held under 
an old grant from the crown and was invested at the same time with the 
extraordinary and unenviable privilege of exercising martial law under 
his own authority solely, and of dealing out such punishments, even the 
most penal, as he should deem meet. 

Francis Cosbie and Mary Seymour, daughter of Edward Seymour, Duke of 
Somerset, and Sir Henry Peyton's widow, had three sons, viz: 

1. Henry, who died in England. 

2. Alexander, inheritor of the estates. 

3. Arnold, who served under Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester with 
great reputation, in low countries, and in 1586, with celebrated Sir 
Philip Sidney was at the battle of Zutpgen, (1586) where Sir Philip 
received his mortal wounds. Capt. Arnold Cosbie remained after the Earl 
of Leicester's return to England and obtained from Queen Elizabeth, in 
consideration of his good services, a pension of three shillings per day 
on the Irish Establishment until he should be otherwise provided fr in 
the Army of that Kingdom. notwithstanding this apparent protection of 
the court, he suffered in two years after, the utmost penalty of the 
law, for killing the Lord Bourke, of Castle Connell, in a duel on 
Finchley Common, the Queen preemptorily refusing to extend to him her 
royal mercy. 

After the death of Mary 18 January 1570 he married Elizabeth Palmer 
in 1575. Their only child was: 

4. Catherine, or Tose, married to Archibald More, Esq., but died 
childless. 

The following account of Francis Cosbie is taken from the English 
Dictionary of National Biography. It will be observed that in this 
article no mention is made of his having any other wife than Elizabeth 
Palmer, who is given as the mother of all his children. 

"Cosby, Francis, (born 1510, died 1580) Irish General settled in 
Ireland in Henry VIII's reign in 1548. Bellingham, the lord deputy, 
acknowledged the resource and courage displayed by Cosby in attacking 
the marauders who infested the boundaries of the English Pale, and ten 
years later, Sussex was an enthusiastic in his commendation. In 1558 
Cosby was appointed General of the Kern and in 1562 was granted the 
suppressed Abbey of Stradbally in Queen's County. In 1565 he became 
Governor of Maryborough and Seneschal of Queen's County. He helped to 
massacre, although the amount of his responsibility being placed upon 
him is doubtful, Rory of the O'Moores, at Mullah, near Atby, in 1567, who 
had been summoned to the fortress on avowedly peaceful business. Cosby 
was not successful in suppressing disorder in Queen's County. Rory Oge 
0' Moore was continually threatening him and took his eldest son prisoner 
in 1566. The murder of Rory in the following year relieved Cosby of his 
chief difficulty, but the outbreak of the Desmond Rebellion in 1580 
caused him new anxiety and he was killed by the rebels at the battle of 

196 



Glenmalure, the 25th of August 1580. He married Elizabeth Palmer by 
whom he had three sons: Alexander, Henry, and Arnold, and one daughter. 
Alexander succeeded to the estates, received additional grants In 
Queen's County, and was with his son, Francis, killed at the battle of 
Stradbally Bridge. The estates subsequently passed to Richard, another 
son of Alexander, whose descendants still possess them. Arnold, Francis 
Cosby' 3 second son, served under the Earl of Leicester in the Low 
Countries. " 

O'Hare in his Irish Pedigrees, states: "After Leix had been formed 
into a country, the following seven families were the chief English 
settlers during the reign of Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth, and were 
called the seven tribes; namely, Cosby, Harrington, Bowen, Rush, 
Harpole, Hetherington, and Hovendon. " 

Francis Cosby, (Cosby Ancestory) as stated above eventually fell at 
the Battle of Glenmalure at the head of the Kern which he valiantly led 
to the charge, although then seventy years of age. 



ALEXANDKR COSBY 

Francis was succeeded by his second son, Alexander Cosby, Esq. , of 
Stradbally Abbey, who seems to have been engaged during the whole of his 
life time in warfare with the O'Moores. Camden, in his life of 
Elizabeth, recounts his being once taken by treachery, during a 
conference with Rory Oge, near Leighlin, and that he was rescued when 
bound to a tree by Harpole, but not before he had received a wound from 
a knife inflicted by Rory. He married Dorcas, daughter of William 
Sidney, Esq. , of Oxford in Kent (grandnephew of William Sidney, Lord of 
Cranleigh) by whom he had fifteen children. This lady, who had been one 
of the maids of honor to Queen Elizabeth and who was second cousin to 
Sir H. Sidney, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, obtained through her 
influential connections at court, grants in <.Leixi so extensive that at 
that period, the family were the territorial Lords of more than a moiety 
of Queen's County. The feud with the 0' Moores enduring, however, in all 
its lawless violence, came at length to issue in 1596, and proved fatal 
to Cosby and his eldest son, Francis. In that year Anthony 0' Moore, the 
chief of the insurgent clans bearing his name, sent to demand a passage 
over Stradbally Bridge, but the requisition being deemed by Cosby as a 
challenge, was promptly and peremptorily denied and preparations were 
commenced, without loss of time, to defend the pass should the enemy 
attempt to force it. The attempt being made by 0' Moore on the 19th day 
of May, the Lord of Stradbally, Alexander, at the head of his Kern 
accompanied by his son and heir, Francis, who had married about a year 
previously (Ellen), daughter of Thomas Harpole, Esq., of Thrule and had 
borne him a son, William, but nine weeks before, met his foe in deadly 
combat on the bridge while the conflict was witnessed from a window in 
the Abbey by Dorcas Sidney Cosby, and her daughter-in-law, Ellen Harpole 

197 



Cosby. For some time the valor of the Cosbys was irreslstable and the 
fortune of the day appeared to be theirs. Alexander, however, pursuing 
his advantage with extraordinary impetuosity received a wound which 
proved at once mortal and instantly turned the tide of the battle. The 
kern with melancholy howling for the fate of their leader began to give 
away, when Francis Cosby fearing that he should be entirely abandoned 
leaped over the bridge in the hope of making good his retreat to the 
Abbey, but the instant that he cleared the battlements he was mortally 
wounded and fell dead into the river. Those scenes, one would suppose, 
would have appalled the new widowed ladies who witnessed them, yet it is 
recorded that Ellen Harpole Cosby with coolest presence of mind 
cautioned her mother-iin-law to retain her recollection of how the elder 
Cosby fell before his son, Francis, her husband, who had by thus 
inheriting the estates, even for a few minutes, entitles her to her 
thirds or dowry. It is not known how the ladies eventually escaped, but 
the infant, Villiam Cosby, was carried off and preserved by his nurse. 
0' Moore pursuing his victory took possession of the Abbey, and after 
sacking committed it to flames, when many of the patents and other 
valuable documents of the family were destroyed in the conflagration. 
Alexander Cosby and Dorcas Sidney Cosby had the following children: 

1. Francis born January 1, 1571, was baptised with much ceremony in 
St. Patricks Church, Dublin, the Lord Deputy standing God-Father. He 
was a Captain of the Kern and fell, as already stated, immediately after 
his father at the Battle of Stradbally Bridge, May 19, 1596, leaving his 
wife (Ellen Harpole, who wedded, second time, Sir Thomas Loftus of 
Killian in King's County), an infant child, William, born 1596, who 
succeeded him. 

2. Richard, successor to his nephew. 

3. Charles, born September 12, 1585, married 1523 Mary Loftus, 
sister of the above Sir Thomas Loftus, children of Sir Adam, D. D. 

4. Arnold, born 1591, settled in Caven County and planted a branch 
of the family there. 

5. Mabel, born August 12, 1593, married George Harpole, Esq., of 
Thrule, (Brother of Ellen Cosby), in Queen's County and died in 1632 
leaving issue. 

6. Rose, born in the Queen's House at Oxford in Kent, November 
1582, married Richard, Lord Howth. 

The melancholy catastrophe of Alexander Cosby and son appears to 
have created a strong public opinion at the time and the Queen, taking 
the state of the family into her gracious consideration, was pleased to 
grant by letter-patent, in which the circumstances of the Battle of the 
Bridge are recited, to Dorcas Sidney and Ellen Harpole, the wardship of 
the infant, Villiam, besides conferring upon them pension in 
consideration of the many essential services rendered by their husbands 
to the Crown. Alexander Cosby was succeeded, although for only a few 
minutes, by his eldest son, Francis Cosby, Esq. , of Stradbally Abbey, 
who died young when the estates reverted to his uncle Richard Cosby, 
Exq. , who thus became of "Stradbally Abbey," and in order to repair the 

198 



losses occasioned by the loss of the family records, at the time of the 
burning of the Abbey obtained under conmiission of King James I, for the 
remedy of defective titles, a new title of the same import of the old 
one, which is still extant. This Richard, who was Captain of the Kern 
and esteemed of great martial courage and ability, eagerly solicitous, 
on becoming chief of his line to avenge the death of his father and 
brother, dared the 0' Moores to a pitched battle and the challenge being 
accepted, the contending clans met once more (A. D. 1606) in Glyn of 
Aggnabily under the Rock of Duannamace, when a most bloody conflict 
ensued terminating in the triumph of Cosby, and the total defeat of his 
foes, who were never afterwards able to make head against him. Captain 
Cosby himself displayed great personal boldness and received so many 
dangerous wounds in the action that he could not be moved from the field 
to Stradbally but was carried to Dysert House, then the seat of Sir 
Robert Pigot, where he remained a considerable time before he was so far 
recovered to be enabled to return home. During his confinement, 
Elizabeth, one of the daughters of his hospitable host attended him with 
so much kindness and care that he subsequently solicited her hand and 
she became his wife soon after his reestablishment at Stradbally. This 
union, although in every respect unexceptional, proved to be in a high 
degree prejudicial to the fortunes of the family, for his mother, Lady 
Dorcas Sidney, who entertained a deep rooted antipathy to the Pigots, 
taking offense at the alliance immediately went over to England, where 
she married a second husband. Sir Thomas Zouche and left all her estates 
in Ireland, excepting Fimahee to the Zouches, while she leased that for 
a long time to Sir Thomas Loftus, who became in 1615 the second husband 
of her daughter-in-law, Ellen (widow of Francis Cosby). 

Dorcas Cosby evidently had a very high opinion of her own family, as 
in all grants of land made by her, as well as in her private writings 
she used the name of Sidney instead of Cosby. Among the Sidney family 
papers is a letter from the Earl of Pembroke (Dudley 3rd) to his uncle 
Robert, Earl of Leicester, promising to support Dorcas in her 
differences with Sir Edward Zouche, her husband's son and heir, and 
assuring her that Sir Edward would not wrong her. Sir Thomas Zouche 
died in 1625, and was survived by his wife. Among the fifteen children 
of Dorcas Sidney by her first husband, Alexander Cosby, were two sons 
named John, one born in 1574 and one born in 1589. Both died young. 
John Cosby, the son of Charles, the emigrant was probably named after 
the two uncles. 



<Z:HARLES COSBY 

Charles Cosby, the founder of the family in Virginia, was born 
September 12, 1585 at Stradbally. He married Mary Loftus. Her 
grandfather, Edward Loftus of Swinehead, County York, England, settled 
in Ireland in the 16th century and was one of those who obtained from 

199 



Queen Elizabeth and King James extensive grants of forfeited land. He 
had two sons, the elder Robert, was the ancestor of the Viscount Loftus 
of Ely. The second son, Adam (born 1534, died April 5, 1605) was D. D. 
of Trinity College, Cambridge and Chaplain to Queen Elizabeth. He was 
made Archbishop of Armagh (Primate of Ireland) in 1651 and Lord 
Chancellor of Ireland in 1573. He was knighted 1603 and had power to 
confer Knighthood. He was instrumental in establishing the University 
of Dublin and was its first Provost. He married Jane Purdom, daughter 
of Adam Purdom, by whom he had twenty children, and died April 5, 1605. 
His daughter, Anne Loftus, married Sir Henry Colley, knighted 1576 and 
was ancestress of the First Duke of Wellington. The male line of this 
Adam became extinct in 1785 but is represented in the female line by 
Marquis of Ely, whose fourth son. Sir Thomas Loftus, brother of Mary 
Loftus Cosby, married Ellen, daughter of Robert Harpole of Thrule, and 
widow of Francis Cosby II, son of Alexander Cosby I. Charles Cosby' s 
wife was sister of this Sir Thomas and Anne Colley. She died November 
23, 1623. Charles Cosby was doubtless induced to settle in Virginia 
through his connections with the Zouches who had extensive grants of 
land in that colony. He is said to have settled in York or Varwick in 
1628. 



JOHN COSBY 

John Cosby, son of Charles and Mary Loftus Cosby, was a planter in 
York County, Virginia. He was born in England 1623 and died in York 
County in the early part of 1696, age seventy-three years. His will 
dated September 4, 1695 having been proven in the York County Court on 
March 24, 1696. He owned extensive tracts of land in York, King & 
Queen, and Hew Kent Counties. On November 30, 1657 his young daughter 
Mary accidentally set fire to her clothes and burned to death. She was 
probably the daughter of his first wife, as Sarah Cosby, his widow, 
survived until 1740, which precludes the possibility of her having a 
child born to her prior to 1657. The records of the court of York 
County show that on November 12, 1678, John Cosby, John Sanders, and 
Argall Blackston were appointed Surveyors of Highways for York parish. 
In records of Land Grants Patents of Virginia (Vol. 4, p. 72) appears an 
entry of 700 acres of land in New Kent County, Northeast side of 
Mattaponi River to John Cosby on January 5, 1656 for transportation of 
sixteen persons; in same volume and page is another entry to John Cosby 
of 1,000 acres in New Kent County on the south side of York River, for 
the transportation of twenty people. On the same date, same book, page 
73, is an entry to John Cosby of 800 acres in New Kent County, northeast 
side of Mattaponi River (1200 acres by purchase and 600 acres for 
transportation of twelve persons) . From the fact that John Cosby' s 
widow survived him for a period of nearly 45 years it Is supposed that 
she was not the mother of all of his surviving children, and possibly 

200 



not of any of them although in her will she mentions "her sons and 
granddaughters. " 

The following are copies of the will of John Cosby I and widow 
Sarah: 

"In the name of God, Amen. I John Cosby of Hampton Parish in York

DAVIE) COSBY 

David Cosby, son of Charles and Jane Meriwether Cosby, was born in 
1703 and died in 1770, removed to Hanover County, which eventually 
became Louisa County. He was an extensive land holder and planter. His 
name appears In 1745 as one of the first Board of Vestrymen of the new 
Parish of Fredericksville, created after the separation of Louisa from 
Hanover. In Bishop Meade's History of the Old Churches, Ministers, and 
Families in Virginia (Vol. 2, p. 41-42) his sij^nature appears with those 
of other vestrymen to the oaths of allegiance and adjuration that they 
were required to take. He married Mary (Garland) Overton in 1725. She 
was a dauj^hter of Captain James Overton and Elizabeth Garland, his wife, 
sister of Mrs. John Cosby (Garland and Overton). Mary was born in 1705. 
Her grandfather, William Overton I, was born in England December 3, 
1638, married 1670, Elizabeth Mary Water, a Roman Catholic of 
considerable fortune. The father of William Overton, 1st, Major General 
Robert Overton, was one of the most distinguished officers of the 
Parliamentary Army under Cromwell. David Cosby died in 1770, his will 
being proved in Louisa County on September 10 of that year. She died in 
1785, her last will being proved on February 14, of that year. The 
following are copies of their wills, also of their daughter, Jane's. 

"In the name of God, Amen. I David Cosby, of the County of Louisa

DAVID COSBY 



David Cosby was born in Louisa County about 1728. He was one of the 
administrators of his father's will. He moved to Goochland County, 
probably before 1755, where he spent the rest of his life. 

In the 21st of November 1755 issue of the Virginia Gazette, he 
placed an advertisement, stating that he lived near Sherwood Harris on 
Tuckahoe Creek in Goochland County, and that a mare had taken up by him. 
He was hoping that the owner would claim the mare! 

His first 2 children were probably born in Louisa county, and 
probably the rest were born in Goochland County. During the life of 
David Cosby, we find a variation in the spelling of the name. In the 
marriage record of Nancy Cosby, David's granddaughter by son Charles, 
Charles name is written as Causby, while Nancy lists her name as Cosby. 
In the period of 1775 to 1850, the names are written both ways. In his 
will which follows, son James' last name is spelled is both ways, while 
David and son James is spelled Causby. Some of the grandsons of Charles 
thought that their forbears made an agreement regarding the spelling of 
the name. Possibly the fact that David could not write his name, might 
have caused who wrote his name to spell it as it sounded. Without 
dictionaries many words were spelled phonetically. 

The name of David's first wife has not been found and she was the 
mother of his first two children. His second wife was Mary Johnson, the 
daughter of Charles Johnson and his wife Elizabeth, on 26 January 1757, 
in Louisa County. Charles Johnson purchased 150 acres of land on the 
north side of James River, in Goochland County on 7 August 1728. On 28 
September 1732 he patented 400 acres of land on the branches of Tuckahoe 
Creek. Over the years he bought several smaller tracts, all in the same 
vicinity, and was a substantial owner of land. On 16 November 1754 he 
made the following deed; "for natural love and affection to my son-in- 
law David Cosby 100 acres of land which is part of tract whereon said 
Charles Johnson now lives." The reason is unknown, but within a year he 
deeded the property back to Charles Johnson. In addition to Mary, 
Charles and Elizabeth Johnson had the following children: James Johnson 
and William Johnson. While David was not a wealthy man, in the 1782 
personal property taxes, he was levied for slaves Phil, Robin, Jack and 
14 cattle. 

David Cosby married, as his third wife, Susanna Whitte on 24 
September 1791 in Goochland County. They had no issue. 

His will is recorded in deed book 19, part 1, page 80 as follows: 

"In the name of God Amen. I David Causby of the County of Goochland 
being in a low state of health but in sound mind and memory do

JEREMIAH DAVID COSBY 

Jeremiah David Cosby was born 11 October 1761, probably in Louisa 
County, Virginia, the fourth child of David Cosby and Mary Johnson. As 
we know from oral history, Jermiah, known as Jeremiah and also as David, 
was also known as "blind David". He was quite a fiddle player, and in 
one of the times he was playing for a dance, tragically he was blinded 
which led to his nickname, and also resulted in his inability to make a 
living for his family. He was shot by a Mr. Gilliam, by accident. His 
name was listed in "Virginia Soldiers of 1776". He died in Powhatan 
County prior to 13 Feb. 1813. Through 1817 the property was taxed as 
being a tract of 40 acres or less, joining the properties of John Goode, 
Bennett Goode, and the estate of Vm. S. Forsee on Fine Creek. However, 
there was a new survey made, apparently, which changed the amount of 
land to 55 acres. When the land was first purchased the deed called for 
25 acres of land, purchased by David Causby. Some records showed his 
name David Causby, and others referred to him as Jeremiah Causby, but 
none exist showing him as Jeremiah David Causby (Cosby) . 

He was intestate when he died and the matter was brought before the 
Circuit Court of Powhatan in the Nov/Dec 1832 term by his son Boiling 
Causby. The following petition was presented to the court: 

"To the worshipful Justices of the County Court of Powhatan, in 
chancery setting: 

Humbly complaining then unto your worships, your orator Bowling 
Causby, in his own right, and as guardian ad litem- specially appointed 
by the court to take care of them in this suit- of Agatha Ann, Alfred, 
John Calvert and Elizabeth Causby, infant children of William Causby 
dec'd, and of William, Edwin, and Mary Causby, infant children of 
Jeremiah Causby dec'd, your orator William H. Harrison, and Deborah, his 
wife, your orator Uicholas Wilkinson, who intermarried with one of the 
daughters of Jeremiah Causby, the father of Bowling and Jeremiah Causby 
just named, and others, your orator Judith, widow of William Causby 
dec'd and your orator Ludwell W. , Jefferson, and Mahala, all children of 
William Causby dec'd and now of legal age, and your oratrix Eliza, widow 
of Jeremiah Causby, junr. dec'd- that some time in the year Jeremiah 
Causby, father of your orator Bowling Causby and others above-named, 
died intestate, leaving several children, all of whom together with 
their descendants-wlth the exception of two, viz; David & Lilburn 
Wilkinson who are sons of Nicholas Wilkinson, of legal age, and are now 
beyond the limits of the state named above, and possessed of a small 
tract of land in this county, containing between fifty and sixty acres. 
--That this land has continued ever since the death of the said 
intestate Causby, and now is, wholly unproductive, and that the 
individual share of each one entitled thereto falls much under the value 
of $300 — and that all the parties interested would, no doubt, be 
benefited by the sale, and the distribution of the proceeds thereof: To 
the end therefore, that the two sons of Nicholas Wilkinson, now of legal 
age, to wit: David & Lilburn may be made parties unto, that the land may 

208 



be sold, and the proceeds of such sale be divided amongst them properly 
entitled hereto, may it please your worships to grant any process, and 

make any order, that may be necessary and proper to the .

GAKLAITD COSBY #111122415212 

Garland Cosby, the son of Charles Cosby, was born in Hanover County, 
Virginia about 1759. In March 1776, being then 17 years old, he 
enlisted for 12 months in a minute regiment commanded by Col. Samuel 
Meredith, in the company commanded by Captain James Dabney and was 
discharged December 25, 1776. In 1777 he enlisted in Captain David 
Anderson's Company and was made orderly sergeant. He marched with the 
company to Williamsburg and joined Col. Grayson's regiment and soon 
after became Regimental quartermaster. In 1781 he again enlisted as a 
volunteer in a company commanded by Capt. Hughes of Louisa County and 
was made Lieutenant and marched in command of his company to Gloucester 
County, Virginia to Join Col Campbell's command and was promoted to 
Captain. His last service was in a regiment commanded by Col. Innis. 
After the war he removed to Fayette County, Kentucky, where he lived for 
6 years. Thence he moved to Henderson County, Kentucky, where he died 
prior to 1842. He was married about 1784 to Miss Lucy Polndexter, a 
native of Virginia. She was a sister of George Poindexter who served on 
General Jackson's staff in the War of 1812. 



FORTUBATUS COSBY #111122415216 

Fortunatus Cosby, the son of Charles Cosby and Elizabeth Wingfield, 
was born in Louisa County, Virginia on December 30, 1765. He died 
October 10, 1846. He graduated from William and Mary College at the age 
of 19. On May 19, 1795, he married Mary Ann Fontaine, who was born on 
October 14, 1778. After Kentucky became a state of the Union, there was 
a great amount of litigation arising out of conflicting grants of land. 
Fortunatus saw this as a great opportunity for him, as a lawyer. He 
accompanied his father-in-law to Kentucky, about 1796 settling on 
Harrods Creek, a few miles from Louisville. He moved to Louisville in 
1802. 



FORTDSATUS COSBY #1111224152162 

Fortunatus Cosby was born on May 2, 1801 at the home of his 
grandfather, Captain Aaron Fontaine of Harrod's Creek, nine miles east 
of Louisville, Kentucky. He entered Yale College with the class that 
graduated inl826, but left at the beginning of his senior year having 
been called home on account of illness. He did not return to Yale but 
took his degree at Transylvania University, Lexington, Kentucky. About 
1823, with his cousin Dabney Carr Terrell, a great nephew of ex 
President Thomas Jefferson, he visited that gentleman at Montlcello. In 
1850 he went to Washington under an appointment in the U. S. Treasury 

276 



Department where he remained until 1861, when he was appointed by 
President Lincoln as U. S. Consul at Geneva, Switzerland. He sailed for 
his post in September 1861. When his nomination was submitted to the 
senate for confirmation, some doubt was expressed as to his loyalty, as 
he was from a southern state and had a son and a son-in-law in the 
Confederate army. The senate having adjourned without acting on his 
nomination, his appointment lapsed. He was, however, immediately 
reappointed and confirmed and commissioned on February 18, 1863. He 
only served until October 10, 1863. He remained abroad until after the 
Civil War was over. 

He was a poet of fine quality. He died in Louisville, Kentucky on 
June 15, 1871 in the 71st year of his age. 



ARTHUR F0RTU5ATUS COSBY #111122415216253 

Arthur Fortunatus Cosby was a trooper in the Spanish American Var 
and was stationed and fought in Cuba. The following article is from 
"The Splendid Little Var", by Frank Freidel. 

"One of the wounded men able to make his way back to Siboney was 
Trooper Arthur Fortunatus Cosby. In a dispatch to Harper's Weekly, John 
Fox, Jr. , referred to him as "that wounded courtier. . who, feverish, 
trembling, with a scraped temple, a badly wounded hand, and a bullet in 
his chest, staggered painfully some ten miles, waving off all 
assistance, and confessing at last, as he sat on the beach, in the 
broiling sun, waiting to be taken to a hospital-ship, that if it were 
handy, and could be got without too much trouble, he thought he would 
like a peach, " 

To another correspondent, Cosby dictated a letter for his mother: "I 
have been in another engagement & am slightly wounded-not seriously. I 
was lying in the grass, storming an intrenched blockhouse near Santiago, 
when a ball entered my hat, grazed my temple, went through the fleshy 
part of my hand in 3 places, & lodged in the muscles of the right chest. 
I am not suffering at all." 

Ten days later, on July 12, Cosby again had his picture taken at the 
same Tampa studio where he had been photographed on June 6. 

Trooper Cosby was indeed relatively lucky. Some of the men with 
whom he had fought the day before were being buried in the Spanish 
trenches on San Juan Hill. Along the road stretching back to El Pozo, 
Caspar Whitney saw many grim sights in the gray dawn of July 2." 



CHARLES COSBY #111122415222 

Charles Cosby, ths son of David Cosby and Mary Johnson, was born 21 
October 1754. He married Mary Minter, the daughter of Anthony Minter.

— WILLIAM HEBRY COSBY, JR #11112241522244 

The following article is from the Kentucky Historical Society 
Register Volume 57, of January 1959: 

"THE ADVENTURES OF "THE RUN-ABOUT-BOY" 
BY Ross A. Webb 

During the 1840' s and 1850' s the United States experienced an era of 
expansion and development that produced a nation stretching from 
Atlantic to Pacific. This magnificent destiny was, in no small way, the 
product of its adventuresome people who left their native soil for 
greener pastures because of an innate desire for change and a love of 
adventure. A veritable flood tide of humanity had begun moving slowly 
toward the setting sun. It appeared that the whole population of the 
country was on its way west. 

It was during this period that a young Kentuckian, William Henry 
Cosby, reached maturity. Heeding the call of destiny he "threw over the 
traces" and determined upon a life of wandering that was to plague him 
until the end of his days. 

In the fall of 1840 young Cosby first set out for the rich expanses 
of the West. Like so many of his fellow Kentuckians, he had decided 
upon Missouri as the place to seek his fortune. Leaving his home in 
Bourbon County, he traveled by land to Louisville and then embarked by 

279 



boat for Missouri. The Journey down the Ohio and up the Mississippi to 
St. Louis was not an easy one. He was thirteen days reaching his 
destination. Unfortunately, his boat ran on a pile of rocks Just below 
Louisville, and he was detained here for two and a half days. It was 
quite an experience for our young adventurer, for he wrote his mother: 

When we get of the bot Coanenced filing with water very fast fron a hole the rocks 
had snagged in it, , , As we Case down the river Ohio we found 5 boats stuck in one place 
and one or 2 others Sunk-after getting into the Hissippy we Cane on with no trouble at 
all, 

Cosby was fortunate enough to have a cousin in St. Louis from whom 
he was able to secure room and board. "Cousin Ben" charged him only 
thirteen dollars a month, while the standard charge, according to Cosby, 
was usually fifteen dollars a month. Possessing this much security, he 
now familiarized himself with the city. Before long he secured work as 
a clerk in the store of Thomas S. Warner. Cosby was elated with his 
newly found work: "Tho' my salary and future prospects are very good-I 
am getting $240 per annum. .. But if I stay after the first 1 or 2 months 
I am to get 35 or 38$ per month." Evidently Warner was having 
difficulty keeping his help! 

The young emigrant was enthusiastic over the growth and progress of 
the city and reported it in glowing terms: 

This IS one of the oost business places lia in the Vest, [A] Great deal nore business 
[is] done here than in Louisville Ky; There is supposed to be an thousand Houses building 
here now altho tiies are so hard, It is not so large as Louisville but it bids fair to be 
aloost as large again in a few years, 

A year's residence in this western city and Cosby had become a man 
about town. "I have been wondering. . . which would make the Best, or 
which was the most consumate fop, I or Mr. Moffet-who you know is the 
most fashionable gentleman in our City." Afraid that his "Very Dear Ma" 
would not understand such things, he described "one of these gentlemen, 
for instance," he said, "myself": 

A pair of fine Boots with Heels 2 inches high (I begin By describing the aost 
sensible part first (as you have doubley concluded that ny heels have as ouch sense as sy 
head). Toe as sharp as a needle, Black pants and Coat (pants sade Gather stile) Sattln 
(striped) Vest, chekered neck Hdkf, Caster Hat with bell crown, rim circled up at the 
sides and white Kid Gloves. 
What a figure he must have cut! 

In keeping with his new style, he began to move in fast company. 
"Christmas, I spent some 5 or 6 Dollars in riot and Drink. . . fear I 
had begun to foster a love for it." This provided a sobering 

experience, for he concluded that he "had better Join the Temperance 
Society and take the pledge. . . of Total Abstinance." As of the end of 
May he had "very strictly observed" it. 

By this time Cosby had tired of St. Louis, and in the spring of 1842 
he left the social life of the city for the loneliness of a farm in the 
northwestern part of the state. Like many a western emigrant he took 
with him his scrapbook to wile away the hours. 

I'm just aausing myself reading in my scrapbook a yanky Courtship which I have not 

280 



noticed before for Sonetime its quite laughable; -Johnathan, doez you love bilea beef & 
dumplins, -Darned if I dont Seruke; but a hot dumplin ain't nothin' to your sweet, pretty, 
tarnei nice red lipz Seruke -0, la! go away now, you Johnathan, 

Nor was he dependent upon others for his literature and poety. Scattered 
throughout his letters home were snatches of his own poetry: 
Tis night, dead night; and weary nature lies 

So fast as if she never were to rise 
Lean wolves forget to howl at night's pale moon, 

No waking dogs bark at the silent moon, 
Nor bay the ghosts that glide with horror by, 

To view the Caverons where their bodies lie. 

Cosby had come to "Davis" County expecting to establish himself as a 
large-scale farmer, but he was soon disillusioned: "As for me . . . 
being a farmer I cant think of it. You have no idea how difficult & 
laborious toil a farmer has to undergo in Mo." This decision was doubly 
voiced in the same letter; "I should never consent, in the world, to 
commence farming with no other laborer but myself." 

Having faced up to this reality, he now sought another trade or 
profession. After much indecision, he narrowed his interests to law and 
medicine. Of these two, he decided medicine held the greatest 

attraction. He believed that, if he studied energetically for twelve 
months and then apprenticed himself to a practicing physician for six or 
eight months, he should be able to begin practice at once on his "own 
hook" and by "constant study of medicine for 4 or 6 yrs. at leisure 
moments" he expected to do well. 

This decision, and the action which was to follow, did not find 
ready approval from all members of the family. An uncle writing to his 
mother commented on Cosby' s perf idlousness: 

I saw one of Us, Saiart letters to Betty [a sister of Cosby] and as he is a hopeful! 
case, I Bust wish & think that he will make something after a while, If he can quit the 
use of tobaco, , , If a man cant quit the use of Tobaco I profecy that he will not attain 
to imnance and if Wni, does not go Into business I fear that you will suffer hi» to use up 
some of ray funds or yours to prevent you from paying me, , , ,For [the] good old Book says 
that he that will not work neither should he Eat-please try i set him to doing something 
that will make his health improve & not get weaker by Idhness, 

On the other hand the would-be doctor received strong support from 
"Cousin" Walters L. Vatkins; .... "There are a great many fine 
openings in Upper Missouri for good physicians. . . and it does seem to 
me that it is the finest opening for young men of industrious habits now 
in the United States." 

Cosby had by this time removed to New Albany, Indiana, where he had 
enrolled in the school of medicine of Christian College. Here he was 
taught the arts of Botanic Medicine. This branch of medicine had swept 
the country in the 1830's and 1840". It was originated by Dr. Samuel 
Thomson, who had come to the conclusion that all disease was the effect 
of one general cause. All animal bodies were formed of four elements: 
earth, water, air, and fire (or heat). A healthy body maintained a 
definite balance between these elements, but any change upset this 

231 



equilibrium and caused illness. Thomson believed that the lessening of 
the power of heat by the obstruction of perspiration caused all disease. 
Therefore to prevent death one must stop the escape of heat. To regain 
health one must build up heat to its natural extent. To aid in raising 
heat and to promote perspiration, Thomson found the "Puke Weed" or 
Lobelia inflata most useful. 

In 1822, together with Ellas Smith, Thomson published his, . . Few 
Guide to Health or Botanic Family Physician. Its price was twenty 
dollars, and it became a best seller of the day. Many a family head 
became a certified Botanic physician, for with his money he secured an 
engraved diploma conferring on him the right "of preparing and using for 
himself and family, the Medicine and System of Practice secured to 
Samuel Thomson, by Letters Patent from the President of the United 
States, " 

In the 1820' s the son of the founder of Botanic Medicine, Charles 
Thomson, came west where he encouraged the widespread use of the new 
medicine. Among the western doctors to adopt the Botanic System was Dr. 
Alvah Curtis. Curtis became a leading light in the new movement. He 
was instrumental in founding the Independent Thomsonian Botanic Society 
and establishing an infirmary at Columbus, Ohio, and he penned powerful 
articles defending the Botanic System in the Thomsonian Recorder. 

Dissension soon appeared in the ranks of the Botanies when Dr. 
Vooster Beach of Hew York organized the "Eclectic" or "Reformed" System 
of Botanic Medicine. By 1837 a break between Doctors Curtis and Beach 
was apparent. Curtis expounded a Botanic System which he called 
"Physiomedicalism" that was little different from the original 
Thomsonian system. To advance his beliefs, he instructed students in 
his own house, secured the incorporation of the Literary and Botanical 
Medical Institute of Ohio (1839), opened a College of Physicians and 
Surgeons at Columbus (1840), taught at Christian College, and later 
removed to Cincinnati where he reorganized the Physiopathic College of 
Ohio. 

Beach, on the other hand, had fallen under the influence of Indian 
doctors, female practitioners, and regular doctors from whom he 
attempted to combine the best features into a "Reformed" medicine. To 
promote his ideas he wrote widely and founded the Reformed Medical 
Academy at New York. His work and ideas were carried to the Vest when 
Dr. Thomas Vaughan Morrow founded the Reformed Medical School of 
Cincinnati in 1840. 

The controversy between Curtis and Beach was raging as Cosby began 
his preparation for medicine. Cousin Walters, who was one of Cosby' s 
chief mentors, wrote him in regard to this; 

But this much I know that I am an eye witness to the practice of one who takes Beach 
for his guide, , , ,1 do not pretend to be any part of a doctor but when I see. , , Beach 
& Curtis successful in arresting the Progress of disease I Bid then god speed and say go 
it B & C, Beach certainly has as much celebrity at this time as Curtis or any other fID on 
earth, , , 

Despite Cousin Walter's addiction to Beach, he gave the young 

282 



novitiate some sound advice: ". . . as I am some older than yourself I 
will take the liberty of advising you when you have leisure to Read 
Beach as I think you are somewhat prejudiced against him, I have lately 
advised a strong beachite to read Curtis & if you will both take my 
advice you may both be benefited." Then he continued: "I hope you will 
do well and save many from an untimely end use all your influence for 
the cause of Reform and Keep as clear of prejudice as you can." 

Cosby remained at New Albany until March, 1845. Then without his 
certificate, and upon the advice of Cousin Walters, he returned to 
Itissouri. His sister Lucy, on a visit to Sew Albany, wrote home: 

The professors of the college »ere auch pleased with brothers lorals and integrity, 
paid coopliinents to him, and gave hin credit for all the tickets of the institution. 
COr,] Curtis said that brother was well qualified to receive a diploma but the laws of the 
college were such that he would have to attend a second session, brother left in fine 
spirits, except parting with friends, 

The trip west was uneventful. The vessel "Vhite Cloud" landed him 
safely at St. Louis. After visiting his friends and relatives in the 
city, he embarked for Cousin Walter's in Clay County. "We were," he 
said, "10 days in getting to Clay at a passage of $8," and then in a 
spirit of morbidness, he added, "our Boat, the 'Nodaway' sunk on her 
downward passage." 

In Clay County he "settled in a spell" with Cousin Walters, who 
after a week provided him with a horse for travel over the countryside 
to determine where he would locate. To his mother, he wrote: 

I traveled up through the Counties of Platte, Buckhannon, and Andrew into Holt, The 
first 2 reminds me very much of Ky, lands in soil & Timber, being, however, rather too 
broken or rolling, Platte has fine sugar orchards, Andrew and Holt are fine rich 
counties, with about half enough timber; the farther you go north in the upper part of the 
State the aore prairie, 

While traveling about he inquired about the price of land: "I have 
found lands no where, worth having for less than $5 pr. acre and general 
7 & 8 to 15$." 

He was disappointed to discover doctors "on every square mile" 
except in Cousin Walters' neighborhood where a doctor had recently moved 
away. "This vacuum I have determined on helping to occupy not in 
partnership with Dr. Shoot (the Botanic Dr.) but on my responsibility." 

In keeping with this decision he wrote that he was determined to 
purchase a farm in Clay County: "Mr. John Gill has 45 acres which we 
have persuaded him to sell us at 5 dollars pr acre." It was 

predominately timberland, for fifteen acres whch had been cleared and 
"well fenced." It had a "very good hued-log house upon it, worth 40$ to 
build" with a stream and two springs for stock and drinking water. It 
had taken 4,500 rails to fence the cleared land which had cost "50 cts 
pr hundred" and "$1 pr thousand" for putting it up. Breaking the ground 
had cost "$2 pr acre". All these improvements to the farm, Cosby 
reckoned "worth 90$ or 100$." Six years previously Gill had paid $310 
for this land but because of debt now was obliged to sell it for $225. 
Friends and relatives approved his purchase, and so our young hero was 

283 



apparently determined to settle down. "I shall board with the gentleman 
who now occupies the house and land- and will work on it when I get no 
practice and improve it all I can." As it turned out, Cosby' s uncle had 
bought the farm! Writing to Cosby' s mother, his uncle commented: "I bot 
for you a house that will suit you & Vm. Bothe. It is paid for & was 
not Costly." 

Already Cosby was contemplating marriage, if he could get his 
"Pocahuntas. ■ He was hoping to find "a charming intelligent, polished 
lass of the best blood of old Virginia," but as it turned out his 
"Pocahuntas" was to be a Missouri belle named Eliza F. Porter. On April 
12, 1846, these two "loving kittens" were wed. Twelve days later he 
described the wedding in a letter to his mother: 

As Providence vould have it it connensed raining soae 8 days before the appointed 
tine and continued untili the evening of the 11th, The 12 vas, however, a beutifull "sun 
shiney" day but rather coal, Notwithstanding the roads were knee deep with 'hoblolly' 
there were between 7 and 800 persons presint to witness our nuptials, There were just 1 
dozen of us to stand up, all dressed very much a like in white and black, In order to get 
there ve covered ourselves perfectly with wrappers, coats and skirts-the whole affair caie 
off very well-no blunders, an excellent cereaony, good prayer, susic, and a first rate 
lecture; delivered to ayself and Eliza of 40 minutes length-we stood it all remarkably 
well, , , . 

After the ceremony, the wedding part retired to Cousin Walters' for "an 
excellent dinner." "The next day Cousin Jane Gill gave us a very good 
dinner with the same company." 

After two weeks of married life, Cosby spoke with assurance: "We 
have been married now almost 2 weeks-long enough to form some idea of 
married life. If I was asked how I like it, I should answer very much, 
very much indeed. " 

In preparation for this day, he had begun a new house at "Ashnoll," 
but as yet it was not finished. Looking forward to the day of its 
completion, he invited his mother to come to Missouri to visit them. 
Supposedly Eliza shared these sentiments: "She says you must come out 
to live with us-says she will wait on you like her own mother." 

His marriage had distressed his "very excellent and very dear Ma." 
In fact it had disturbed her "nightly reposes," In an effort to console 
her, he again urged her to come to Missouri and forwarded her thirty 
dollars for that purpose. Then he chastened his mother with these 
words: 

But I Bust tell you several things: 1st That I have the sweetest and best wife in the 
world; and intelligent, spirited, kind, affectionate and very industrious and lanageing 
wife, one capable of making a husband happy - 2ndly that my house will soon be in very and 
coDfortable order and that we have plenty of substantial food and clothing to wear. 
To this he had added a "very good stable" as well as a "meat and chicken 
house." Already he had two horses, a cow and calf, and two Berkshire 
pigs. Eliza's stock consisted of "10 or a dozen hens, 20 or 30 

chickens, 1 Gosling or Gooseling and 2 cole-black cats." The doctor 
evidently had done well during the "spell of bad health" that had struck 
Missouri. His prosperity was short lived, however, for now he complain- 

284 



ed: "Our country is quite healthy now. Consequently I have but little 
to do as Physician." 

Some time elapsed before Cosby' s mother was able to make the trip 
from Bourbon County, Kentucky, to Clay County, Missouri. Not until 1848 
did she sojourn west to visit her children and her other Missouri kin. 
Her fears were evidently allayed in regard to her son's marriage, for 
now she spoke with kindness and concern for her daughter-in-law. 

But then a deep sorrow befell Cosby. His beloved Eliza died in 
childbirth in the fall of 1S48. A "darlinR" daughter had been left 
behind. To piece together the ensuing story of heartbreak which Cosby 
suffered is difficult, for little in the way of positive record exists. 
His mother was probably with him at the time, for no lengthy letter to 
Bourbon County, Kentucky, has been found which tells of his distress. 

laming his infant daughter for his beloved "kitten," he placed her 
with relatives in Orange Hill, Missouri, sold all his possessions, and 
returned to Bourbon County. As he mused "at home" in Paris, two choices 
appeared open to him; Either he must find a new helpmate, or he must 
reconcile himself to leaving little Eliza with her mother's relatives in 
Missouri. At first he tried the former course of action. He petitioned 
a Miss C. F. Porter, who was a cousin of Eliza's, for her daguerrotype. 
This Miss Porter flatly refused for several reasons: 

1st 'Because' -2nd The Daguerreotypes do not flatter; (had the request been for a 
niniature, the artist could flatter sufficiently to lake it pass inspection \ I would have 
felt ijore disposed to comply -) 2 There is not an artist in less than 25 iiles -4th the 
possession of such a treasure sight, I fear, tempt you to cease to cherish the aeiory of 
your last wife, as I kno« it merits-Sth & last, it would savor too luch of vanitv for ae 
to send my likeness so far i to a Stranger too, - Now I an sure the Dr will excuse le for 
being obstinate, especially since I have done that which very, very few women can do, give 
five reasons for refusing, either of which I an sure his own sense of propriety will force 
him to say would be sufficient ground upon which to base a denial, 
The qualntness of a Victorian "Ho"! 

Through his sister Bettie, he approached a Miss Rickards whom he had 
met while a student at Christian College at New Albany, Indiana. Here 
again he met with little success: "I delivered your message to Miss 
Rickards, she says she is not in the habit of corresponding with the 
Gentelmen. . . . Next he turned to a cousin in Cartersvllle, Virginia, 
Nannie L. Cosby. He apparently swept her off her feet, for she wrote 
him immediately inviting him to visit her. "I must express myself 
pleased to hear you speak so highly of the female sex-and I will also 
say that I have t a] more exalted opinion of gentlemen who express 
themselves pleased with the society of ladles- than 1 have of those who 
seem never to care for them at all." After expressing sympathy over the 
loss of his wife, Nannie hoped that he might "be successful in getting 
as good a companion again as your former one was. I am disposed to 
think that it is rather an honor (.than otherwise) for them to marry 
soon-and I honor I mean to the female sex, for the gentlemen to show 
that they like the ladies better, the more intimately they are with 
them." Nannie coyly wondered why some "fascinating young lady" had not 

285 



captivated his heart, but then philosophically concluded; "Maybe you 
are like some others in the world, you would prefer a true hearted 
Virginian before any other. ..." Cousin Nannie appeared too anxious 
and little is heard of her again! Meanwhile he flirted with the one he 
could not get, Miss C. F. Porter. 

Cosby did not remain idle all the while. Along with his courting 
and practicing his medicine, he found time to Invent and patent a 
"specification of the Bucket churn." How successful he was in selling 
his invention cannot be determined. 

Always conce.rned about his daughter, he left the period rich in 
letters telling of Eliza. One such letter noted: "She is the 

sprightliest and most interesting child living." Another; "Eliza is as 
fat as a pig and as lively as a cricket." Assured of his daughter's 
welfare, Cosby again began his roaming. This time he traveled to 
Virginia and to the nation's capital. The Washington Monument was being 
built at this time, and he reported its progress in glowing terms. The 
city of Richmond, Virginia, delighted him; "Richmond is not so even and 
regular as Lexington or Louisville, but is a very pretty place & one of 
much wealth. " 

This brief sojourn did not satisfy his craving for the adventuresome 
life, and when news reached Kentucky of the discovery of gold in 
California, it was not surprising that Cosby should be among those who 
traveled west. Writing his sister Lucy from St. Joseph, Missouri, he 
said: " I am aware of your opposition & that of my very dear Mother to 
this course of mine But still I go 1 think it will be the best thing I 
can do & if I have luck I shall return in a year or two, if not I may 
stay longer. I shall try hard for fortune. ..." 

The constant threat of Indians and sickness from cholera and 
diarrhea made the trip west a difficult one. En route, Cosby wrote 
home; "All have had Dlarrhae 3 of which died from cholera by 

negligence. So far I have done well & expect to get through alive by 
being careful with myself 4 watching my bowels." Sickness became so 
prevalent that he earned anywhere from five to twenty dollars a day 
practicing his medicine. 

Upon arrival in California, he soon was disillusioned: "Gold may be 
found in every bucket of dirt anywhere, but the difficulty is in getting 
enough to Justify one for washing." Later he wrote, "This is a good 
place for a man to make money that will work. But such work Oh my! 'tis 
too hard." To the future emigrant, he penned this advice: 

If thev have been poor h accustoaed to hard labour at *10 or 15 dollars or nonth can 
live upon tough Spanish beef-rancid butter i funky, must bread, can lav down upon the 
earth with blankets for a couch, with fleas k lice innumerable to traverse and suck the 
blood of their weary Hubs, can live in the midst of lawless desparadoes willing and ready 
at any nouent to see injustice, rapine, h murder conraited at any time: willing to have his 
ears greeted hourly with language the grossest & nost vulgar. If they can put up with 
these and many other changes from refined to degraded society, why tell hira he can be 
compensated for it at from »3 to 48 or diem, , , , 
Much of this discouraKement was undoubtedly due to the fact that his own 

286 



fortune was not mounting as quickly as he had hoped: "Ii I j^et one or 
two thousand dollars I shall consider myself lucky." 

In the midst of disappointment, he became ill. Sufferinj^ from a 
stomach and bowel condition, he wrote; "My bowels hurt me all the time 
both night and day. . . ." This condition continued to plaj^ue him and 
in "quest of health" he went to San Francisco. He regained his health 
in the "Bay City" and again began roaming. This time the "run-about- 
boy" traveled to the Sandwich Islands! Cosby was now entirely well. 
"Busy, a pretty well contented, and of course tolerably happy," he 
decided to make California his home. 

It is on this rather happy note that we take leave of William Henry 
Cosby. He has since become dust, but his delightful accounts of life, 
love, and adventure live on. One may shed the occasional tear for him, 
but more often one smiles at the whimsical philosophy of this 
advernturesome spirit." 



LUDVELL WILLIAMS COSBY #11112241522411 

Ludwell V. Cosby, in deeds recorded in Powhatan County, Virginia in 
deed book 20 page 252, and in deed book 18 page 579, purchased the 
property known as Woodberry (also spelled Woodbury) Mills. When the 
property was destroyed by fire 21 September 1948, the following account 
was written in the Richmond Hews Leader, concerning this property: 

"POWHATAN, Sept. 23- Nothing but a burned-out shell remains today of 
Woodbury, a mill believed to be more than 150 years old, which was 
destroyed in a six-hour blaze Tuesday. 

Fire wardens said the fire started at 3 P. M. , in a pile of trash 
near the mill wheel. The wardens were unable to get within 100 feet of 
the blaze for hours, they said, as the flames moved through the 
building, burning furniture and lumber stored inside and cracking the 
stone and brick walls. 

The fire was extinguished about 9 P. M. Damage was estimated at 
between £7,000 and $10,000. 

A landmark for years, the mill measured 42 by 50 feet, with walls 
two feet thick and a massive foundation of stone. Large beams braced 
and supported the gears and stones used in grinding wheat and corn. One 
girder was 18 by 18 inches and 42 feet long. 

The first mill on the site, which probably became the stone part of 
the later structure, was built by John Harris in 1786. In 1801 
extensive improvements were made by Thomas Harris, Jr. 

Woodberry was sold by the Harris heirs in 1824 and passed through 
the hands of several families including those of Moseley, Flournoy, 
Sublett and Cosby. It had been the property of Miss Constance W. 
Johnson for the past several years." 

When Miss Constance W. Johnson bought the property in 1929 she 
secured an abstract of title which read, "All that certain real estate 

287 



in HuRuenot District, Powhatan County, Virginia, containinR 60 acres, 
more or less, consisting of 19 acres of land whereon is the mill known 
as Woodberry Mill, and 41 acres of land covered by the waters of the 
pond known as Voodberry Mill Pond, together with the privileges, 
appurtenances and riparian rights thereunto belonging, conveyed to Miss 
Constance V. Johnson by deed from L. V. Cosby and wife, dated April 6, 
1929, and recorded in the Clerk's Office of Powhatan County on April 6, 
1929." 

John Harris petitioned the County Court of Powhatan for leave to 
build a dam a the February Term 1781, Order Book 1, page 174, and later 
petitioned for a renewal of an order of November 17, 1785, granting him 
leave to erect a grist mill on Jones' Creek and condeming an acre of 
land of Daniel Branch opposite thereto, which leave was renewed by order 
of Novermber Term 1786, Order Book 3, page 56. The Jno. Harris dam was 
probably above the site of the present dam. The present dam was erected 
by Thomas Harris, Jr., about the year 1801, pursuant to orders of the 
Powhatan Court acting under the authority of the Mill Act passed by the 
General Assembly of Virginia December 21, 1792. (Sheppard's Statutes 
Volume I, page 136). 

The jury of 12 men investigating the petition of John Harris to 
build the grist mill, after inspecting the site of the mill reported: 
"If the said Harris should raise his dam so as to pond sixteen feet of 
water measuring the same from the bottom of the stream that in our 
opinion four and one-half acres of land the property of Joseph Salle 
will be over-flowed by the waters in the said pond which we value at 
twenty-five pounds, and also one-half (acre) the property of James 
Martin, for which the said Martin asks no compensation, we are further 
of the opinion that neither the mansion house of any such proprietor, 
the offices, curtilege or garden thereto immediately belonging, or 
orchard will be overflowed, that neither fish of passage, nor ordinary 
navigation will be obstructed thereby, and that the health of the 
neighbors will be annoyed by the stagnation of the waters in the said 
pond." Signed and sealed July 24, 1801. 

"On motion of the said Thos. Harris, Jr. , it is ordered that Joseph 
Salle, the proprietor of land subject to be overflowed by the waters in 
the said pond, be summoned to appear here at next Court to show cause 
why leave should not be granted unto the said Harris to erect a mill at 
the place proposed and in manner before prescribed, he having made a 
tender of the amount of damages assessed by the Jury aforesaid, by 
placing the same on the Clerk's table in open Court." See County Court 
Order Book 6, page 510." 

Joseph Salle objected to the building of the dam and mill stating 
that the stagnation of the pond would endanger the health of his family 
but the Court rejected the argument and gave Harris the right to proceed 
with the payment of twenty five pounds to Joseph Salle.

NAPOLEOU DABNEY COSBY #111122415224111 

Napoleon Dabney Cosby applied for and received a license to run an 
ordinary in Powhatan County on 7 September 1874. On 1 Hay 1876 he was 
granted a liquor license stipulating that the liquor was not to be drunk 
when sold. A further application for his liquor license on 7 May 1677 
gave him the right to sell liquor to be druni when sold at Woodberry 
Mills.

ART MUSEUM 

PLANS SHOVING 

BY GWATHMEY 

Local Artist's Paintings 
To Be Viewed Oct. 27 



290 



Robert Gwathmey, whose naToe in the art world has almost been a 
sensation, is scheduled to let his hometown folk see a cross-section of 
his canvasses at the VlrRinia Museum of Fine Arts Irom iJctober 27 
throu?;h November 13. The exhibition will be previewed next Saturday- 

Born in the city on January 24. 1903. the artist, after j^raduatina; 
from John Marshall Hig;h School and North Carolina State College, bexan 
his art studies at the Maryland Institute of Design, and later was a 
student at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He was awarded two 
Cremon Traveling scholarships in 1929 and 19-30, which permitted of a 
supplementary art education in Europe. 

Returning to this country, he taught at Beaver College and later at 
the Carnegie Institute of Technology. Today, although his canvasses are 
in demand by private collectors, museums and for national exhibitions, 
the Richmond artist teaches part-time at Coopers Union and at the Hew 
School for Social research, in New York. 

Wins Many Awards 

1939 saw him take his first steps on the prize- winning art road. He 
won an award in the "18 State Mural Competition." <.1939), followed by 
one in PM's" Artists as Reporter Competition (1940); first prize in San 
Diego's National Vatercolor Exhibition (1941), and in Artists for 
Victory's "America in the War" (1943); awarded the Rosenwald Fellowship 
(1944); award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters (1946), and 
the third prize in the Pepsi-Cola "Paintings of the Year " exhibition, 
now current in the Metropolitan Museum in New York- 

The artist's work is owned by the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, San 
Diego Museum, the Albright Gallery, the Encyclopaedia Britannica and the 
United States Department of State and some of the foremost art 
collectors in the nation, who have loaned his works for the exhibition. 

Sociologists are unanimous hailing Gwathmey's portrayal of certain 
downtrodden segments of the South' s population. Commenting yesterday 
upon the forthcoming exhibition. Thomas C- Colt. Jr.. the museum's 
director, said; "Gwathmey's work is straightf orwrd. He speaks of the 
South and of its Doorer people with understanding and with the 
democratic responsibility of a Jefferson. But his work is greater than 
mere regionalism and social uplift. His unusual color gains beauty with 
familiarity, and his forms grow in simple strength. They partake of 
humanity, and a universal harmony." 

Highlighting the exhibition will be a discussion of the social 
concept of the artist's work by William Shands Meacham, sociologist and 
chairman of the State Parole Board; Clifford Dowdy, author, and Miss 
Priscilla Crum, the museum's curator of education. This will be held on 
Wednesday. November 13. 

Gwathmey's canvas. "Family Portrait", now in the permanent 
collection of the museum, is to be included in the one-man show.

JEFFERSOH COSBY #11112241522412 

On 19 May 1830, Jefferson Cosby was granted the license he had 
previously applied for which is recorded in order book 21, paRe 242, of 
Powhatan County: 

"On the niotion of Jefferson Causby who has obtained or intends to 
obtain a license for the purpose of selling Koods, wares and merchandise 
of foreign growth and manufacture in this county including Rum, Brandy, 
Gin, Vhlskey and other ardent spirits. It is ordered to be certified 
that it appears to the satisfaction of the court that the said Jefferson 
Causby is a man of good character." 

The following year on 18 May 1831 the court refused the new 
application of Jefferson Causby to sell liquor as he is less than one 
mile from James River, and not in convenient location. 

The following court case in Powhatan County gives much information: 

"To the Honourable John B. Clopton Judge of the Circuit Superior 
Court of Law and Chancery for the county of Powhatan. 

Humbly complaining shew unto your Honor your orators and oratrices 
John Vilson, James E. Vilson, Joseph Ballow and Catharine his wife

his wife now deceased formerly Martha Vilson, by the said Boiling Cosby 
their next friend, that the said John, James E. , Villiam H. , & Vinny 
Vilson, and the said Catharine Ballow, and Rebecca Cosby are children of 
Villiam Vilson, deed, and that the said Mary Ann, Indianna V. and Martha 
C. Cosby are the only surviving children of Martha Cosby dec'd who was 
also a daughter of the said Villiam Vilson dec'd that in the year 1821 a 
certain Villiam Sizer dec'd purchased five negroes of a certain Henry 
Turner for the benefit of Mary Vilson now dec'd late the wife of the

afterwards he purchased another negro man from the said Villiam Vilson 
dec'd named Lewis for the benefit also of the said Mary Vilson dec'd but 
the said Villiam Sizer held and claimed title to the said negroes until 
his death; that by a codicil to the last will and testament of the said 
Sizer a copy of which marked A is herewith filed and prayed to be taken 
as a part of this Bill he bequeathed the said negroes and their increase 
to Francis S. Sampson and Thomas Drake in Trust for the sole interest 
and benefit of the said Mary Vilson during her life, and at her death to 
be equally divided between her children; that the said Sampson & Drake 
are both dead; that on the 12th day of June 1832, the said Villiam 
Vilson now dec'd without any right or title to any of the said negores, 
as far as your orators and oratrices are advised or if he had conveyed 
two of them namely Lewis and Isaac by Deed to a certain Jefferson Cosby, 
as appears by an office copy marked B. and herewith filed as part of 
this Bill; that the said Deed, whatever upon its face may appear to the 

292 



contrary, was founded not In any leRal consideration, and was intended 
merely as a cover or device to prevent the Creditors of the said Villiam 
Vilson dec'd from taking and selling the same, and with the private 
agreement and understanding that the said Jefferson Cosby was to hold 
the negroes solely for the benefit of the said Villiam Vilson and his 
family; that the said Jeffeson Cosby knew and frequently afterwards 
admitted and declared that he had acquired no right in law or equity to 
the said negroes, but that they were held by him for the benefit of Mr. 
Wilson and his family only, yet he now refuses either to surrender the 
said negroes to the children or administrator of the said Villiam Vilson 
dec'd for distribution or payment of debts, or to account for their 
hires and profits for many years past. 

In tender consideration whereof, and in as much as your orators and 
oratrices are remediless in the premises save in a Court of Equity where 
matters of this sort are heard and determined and adequate relief 
promptly rendered to the helpless and oppressed, they pray that the said 
Jefferson Cosby and his children, namely Villiam Thomas Cosby, Robert D. 

Cosby, Branch E. Cosby, Judith Cosby, Polly Cosby, and Cosby, 

whose name is not known but commonly called Tumby, who are the only 
children of his wife Nancy Cosby, now dec'd- formerly Nancy Vilson

surrender the negroes Isaac and Lewis and account for their hires and 
profits for distribution according to Law among the distributees of the 
said Villiam Vilson and Mary Vilson both dec'd or to the legal 
representatives of the said Villiam Vilson dec'd if the court shall so 
adjudge and until a final decrees can be made herein that the said 
negroes be ordered to be placed in the hands of some suitable agent or 
Trustee to abide the decision of the Court; that all necessary process

that finally the said deed of the 12th June 1832 be cancelled, annulled, 
and voided, or such other decree be rendered as the court may decree and 
as duuy bound they will ever pray & etc.

330 Clinton Ave. , 
Broolrlyn, New York. 

My dear Mrs. Holch: 

I received your letter of June 14, 1933. 
for you in regard to the Sizer Family. 



I have done what I could 



Villiam Sizer married Mary Cosby, Sister of Boiling Cosby and 
Deborah Cosby who married Villiam Henry Harrison. They were the children 
of Villiam Cosby who married Judith Vilkerson, Governor of Goochland Co. 
Virginia. They are from David Cosby, whose will was made on December 9, 
1768. He made a will to the following sons: Charles, David, Overton, 
John, James; and the following daughters: Barbara and Jane Cosby. He 
had one Grandson, who was Richard Tomkins. The same Vill probated 
September 10, 1770. Charles and David Cosby his Sons were bonded each 
the Sum of one thousand pounds in current money as executive of the will 
in the Reighn of Sovereign, Lord George the third. David Cosby 
mentioned his wife several times, but never mentioned her name, so in 
line: Villiam Sizer married Mary Cosby. I think the daughter of David 
Cosby. Their Son was Nathanial Sizer who married Miss Flourney of 
Chesterfield County. Father of Beverly Sizer of Old Sizer Tavern. 
Father of Sarah Sizer who married Gary, Brother of Mary Sizer who 
married Hale; whose daughter married a Nelson, a very lar^e family of 
old Manchester. 

I visited a Mrs. Caroline Cosby Vilkerson today, who is ninety-five. 
She said when a young Girl she and some other kin people stopped over 
night at Old Sizer Tavern, which was built in old Manchester, Virginia, 
at Eleventh & Hull Streets and not at Fifth & Hull Streets; which is now 
known as South Richmond, VA. On asking for their bill they were told by 
Vilkersons that they did not owe any bill as they never charged their 
kin folks even if they stayed any length of time. They were always 
welcome. Mrs. C. C. Vilkerson is the daughter of Villiam Ludwell Cosby 
and my Mother; Rosa Cosby Cottrell, the daughter of Jefferson Cosby, 
Nephews of Mary Cosby Sizer, wife of Villiam Sizer. Reuben may have 
been Sarah Sizer Gary's Brother. It was at Eleventh & Hull and not at 
Fifth Hi Hull. It was three story high without side steps, and with an 



294 



Auditorium on top flaor, where they j^ave plays and minstrel Shows. I 
remember cousin Sarah Sizer Gary and the Old Slzer Tavern very well. 
From this you can also see the remembrance of Mrs. Vilkerson. It was 
said after youy once drank of the water of the old well you would always 
come back because of their hospitality. 

I will be glad for you to come to Virginia to visit me. I am not a 
Sizer for my Mother was Rosa Cosby who married Peter Cottrell. I am

MARY M. COSBY & PETER COTTRELL #111122415224127 

Hews of the discovery of gold in California thrilled the nation and 
Chesterf ieldians in 1849 caught the fever badly. The Pacific Mining and 
Trading Company was organized to go in search of the golden treasure. 
In the company of 117 adventurers were V. H. Johnson, Jr. , William M. 
duval, Peter Cottrell and J. F. Cottrell, of Chesterfield. The steamer 
Marrianna was purchased by the company and the party embarked at the 
Warwick wharf on March 16, 1849, headed for the long journey around the 
Horn. Before the ship sailed, William Francis Biship, of Bermuda 
Hundred, booked passage as a passenger. The ship had difficulties In 
crossing Trent's Bar in the James River, but on March 22 the Marianna 
steamed out of Norfolk with another Virginia manned ship, the Glenmore, 
hard on her heels 

For six months the craft raced on around the cape into the Pacific 
and to San Francisco where the Marianna docked three days before her 
rival. There had been many disagreements aboard the Marianna in the six 
months at sea and the travel-weary travelers were so much at odds that 
they voted to disband the company, sell their assets and go off on their 
own to seek the yellow riches of the gold fields. No record of their 
individual progress has been found, but none of the Chesterfield men 
came back with a fortune to spend. Biship, on his return, became 
proprietor of a store at Bermuda Hundred which he was operatinR up to 
the end of the Civil War.

DEBORAH COSBY A WILLIAM HENRY HARRISOH #1111224152247 



William Henry Harrison was amonR the British soldiers who fought in 
the Battle of Waterloo, in Belgium, against Napoleon and the French 
army. After returninj? to England after the war, he was one of many who 
were unhappy and dissatisfied with their lot. With unemployment high, 
the government encouraged emigration, and he came to Virginia. 

In 1818 William Henry Harrison arrived in Powhatan County, Virginia. 
After meeting Deborah Cosby, and after their courtship, they were 
married on November 21, 1821. About 1827 they built their home, 
Middlesex, which is still standing. It was named after his home in 
Middlesex, England. 

In 1843 William and Deborah conveyed li6 acres of land upon which 
present day St. Luke's Episcopal Church was built. The bricks for the 
church were made from clay dug from the tract of land upon which the 
church was built. 



WILLIAM FLEMI5G HARRISON #11112241522472 

William Fleming Harrison was born in the family home of Middlesex, 
in Powhatan County, where he lived until after his marriage to Maria 
Louise Cosby (his second cousin) on November 26, 1853. After the birth 
of their first child he moved, and bought property in the Dover Mill 
District of Goochland County. 

As the Civil War grew closer he organized the Goochland Grays on 
April 10, 1861. On May 20, 1861 the organization was accepted into the 
Confederate Army as Company F of the 23rd Virginia Infantry, and he was 
the Captain. 

The following is a letter written by William Fleming Harrison while 
on duty in the Civil War: 

"Macdowell Thursday June 13th 1861 
Dear Maria 

We are marching on to Huttonville rapidly but very much fatigued 
crossing the mountains you have no conception what we have to undergo 
though we are getting use to it & our feet are hardening we have no 
tents & have to camp out in the open air but we are well provided with 
oilcloths, I laid my arm out on the grass last night in my sleep & when 
I awoke I had scasly any use of my arm but it getting a little better to 
night. I am at a Tavern to sleep tonight we will march to Hightown 
tomorrow ni^ht I want you to write to me at Huttonsville which is 60 
miles from this place we expect to stay there several days to be 
surprised then we will j^o to Beverly St from there to Phillips where will 
have to burn some j^un Powder the boys are all very well. Robert Sanders 
& Smithers are improving very much. Give my love to Ruth & hug her & 

296 



itiss her for me. Your Affectionate Hus. 

Wn F. Harrison 
Direct your letter Capt. V. F. Harrison 23rd ReRt Va Vols, Huttonvllle, 
Randolph County, VA" 

In another letter he wrote: 

"Mr. YounR 

Dear Sir 

It is with deep regret that I have to announce to you that on the 
23d of March your Brother Henry was taken prisoner Near Winchester. Ve 
were en^aKed with the enemy about three hours when there was a constant 
shower of minnie balls & the wonder is that our loss was no worse. 
Henry was taken with two others of nry Company Johnson & Boler none of 
them were wounded & but for their making a mistake wouldn't have been 

Captured They mistook the Yankee Cavalry for ours & to them I 

have seen the Northern report of wounded & prisoners & their names were 
amonR the Prisoners and were sent to Fort Delaware. This is one comfort 
for you & your fathers family. Henry is as brave and gallant a man 
although a youth as Rod ever made & his Captain is as much or more 
regretted than any in our Regt he was peaclble & ever ready to do a 
favour for his friends & never have been reported unfit for duty from 
sickness nor otherwise since he has been in the service I wrote to your 
Father as soon as I knew he was a prisoner which was about two weeks 
ago. Let me hear from you. 

Yours very Respectfully Vm. F. Harrison" 

On July 13, 1861 he was wounded at Laurel Hill. His wound was 
evidently serious since he was on leave for sometime. He re-enlisted 
February 28, 1662 while he was still on sick furlough. Probably because 
of his physical condition, he resigned as Captain on April 21, 1862. On 
January 22, 1863 he enlisted again in Company B of the 42nd battalion of 
the Virginia Cavalry, and on July 1, 1864 he was promoted to Captain. 

He was captured at Saylor's Creek on April 6, 1865, three days 
before the surrender at Appomatox Courthouse. He was paroled July 18, 
1865 and discharged from the Johnson Island prison In Ohio. 



MARGARET E. HARRISON & EDMOND ANDERSON HOOKER #11112241522473

He wrote for many people who never knew how to write. He was a school 
teacher. He served as an election clerk for the countv. He was an 
engineer on the boats on the Lynchburg to Richmond Canal. He served In

"WILLIAM OVERTOH CALLIS OF LOUISA COUHTY" #111122415272 

"by Kenneth McCoy Lancaster 

Louisa, Virginia 

The life of William Overton Callls is like that of a many faceted 
prism. He was a dedicated patriot and military officer during the great 
American Revolution, a practical and sensible politician, a devoted 
family man, a frugal business man, and a plantation owner and operator. 

William 0. Callis was born near Urbanna, Virsinia, 23 March 1757, 
son of William and Mary Cosby Callis. Little is known about Callis" 
father, but his mother was Mary Cosby, daughter of David Cosby of Louisa 
Countv. His maternal grandmother was Nancy Overton of Louisa and 
Hanover County Overton families. 

According to information in family papers. Callis was very young 
when his father died. Mary Cosby brought Callis and his elder brother 
to Louisa County to the home of his grandfather, David Cosby, at "Plain 
Dealing." The "Plain Dealing" plantation lay on the Overton Fork of Elk 
Creek in the eastern portion of Louisa. 

It is believed that W. 0. Callis spent most of his youth here at the 
Cosby home and received his basic schooling in Louisa County. The 
Reverend John Todd, just out of the college of Princeton, conducted a 
classical school at his home near the villaRe of Orchid. Callis 

299 



attended this school before entering the college of Vllliam & Mary at 
Williamsburg, Vir3;inia. 

W. 0. Callis was only nineteen when the American Revolution bep;an in 
earnest and at an early date in the war, probably the latter part of 
1776, he entered the regular army. Prior to this, Callis had served as 
Quartermaster Sergeant of the Louisa Militia in the early part of 1776, 
but upon joining the regular army, served as Lieutenant. 

The early part of the war, fought principally in the north, found 
Callis making the trek northward and taking part in the Battle of 
Brooklyn Heights. Callis was also in Washington's main army as they 
made the retreat from New York across JJew Jersey. 

In January, 1777, W. 0. Callis was promoted to Second Lieutenant. 
Shortly therafter he was promoted to Captain of the 4th Virginia 
Regiment, Virginia Line, Continental Army, under the command of Colonel 
Charles Dabney. 

In 1778, Captain Callis was severely wounded at the battle of 
Monmouth, New Jersey. The injury, received as the result of cannon 
fire, damaged his lungs and thus forced him to take leave for recovery. 
To help regain his health, "He went to the West Indies in early 1779 
where he remained through June of 1780. *• 

Although unable to serve at full capacity. Captain Callis was 
retained to serve as aide-de-camp to General Nelson in the early part of 
1781. While serving under General Nelson in southeast Virginia, he was 
promoted to Major. 

One of Major Callis' primary jobs was to obtain information of enemy 
movements around Hampton Roads, Virginia. On the first day of April, 
1780, he wrote General G. Weedon, Commander of the Continental Army 
stationed at Williamsburg, reporting the extent of such enemy movement 
around the Hampton area. Continuing his service under General Nelson, 
he took part in the siege of Yorktown in October of 1781. 

In the remaining months of the war, Major Callis was relatively 
inactive, but he did not resign from his position. At some point during 
this time, he returned to Louisa County wher he received his commission 
as Colonel of Militia. 

For services rendered to his country during the Revolutionary War, 
Colonel Callis and/or his heirs were issued the following land warrants 
or certificates of payment: 

(1) Virginia Auditor reports a certificate for 113.8.0 was issued on 
21 November 1783 to William 0. Callis of Louisa County for pay as 
lieutenant of infantry from 12 January 1777 to 27 September 1778. 

(2) Warrant #6659 for 4000 ares was issued by the Virginia Land 
Office to the heirs of William 0. Callis on 3 December 1824 for his 
service as captain for the war in the Virginia Continental Line. 

(3) . . . land warrant #1613 for 200 acres was issued on 10 November 
1819. 

Returning to Louisa County, after his military career, Colonel 
Callis bought several plantation tracts. The land best known and 
associated with him is that of "Cuckooville, " or as it is known today, 

300 



"Cuckoo Place." or just plain Cuckoo." 

Colonel Callis purchased the Cuckoo land in 1788 from Robert and 
Barbara Barret. This 340 acre tract was described as belnj? situated on 
the head branches of Little River in the County of Louisa and ivinj? on 
both sides of the main road. The main road spoken of in this 
description was the road from Louisa Court House to Richmond. Callis 
lived on the western portion of the property which is known today as the 
"Whitehall" tract. The larger portion of the plantation lay on the east 
side of the road where the larj?e, brick, two story dwell inf^ of "Cuckoo 
Place" stands today. This dwelling was built by the Pendleton family 
who later acquired this portion of land from the heirs of V. 0. Callis. 

On or very near the side of the present day "Cuckoo house." V. 0. 
Callis kept an ordinary. An insurance policy dated 28 October 1802 
reveals that Callis took out fire insurance on "five bulldina;s on my 
plantation called Cuckooville, " It is quite evident that the ordinary 
stood near the present house site at Cuckoo because of two supporting 
facts- (1) the D. Yancey map ol 1804 shows the tavern on the northeast 
side of the main road, and (2) V. 0. Callis purchased from Anthony 
Vinston a 32 acre tract in September of 1800 and this parcel of land, 
which was contiguous to the Callis tract, is described as "beginning at 
a large chestnut oak on the road leading from Louisa Court House to 
Richmond near Callis' Tavern. This 32 acre Vinston tract lay just 
southeast of the present day house and would have encompassed a large 
portion of the field which is there today. This tract would have joined 
the main road near the present Intersection of Routes 33 and 522. 

On 23 October 1782, V. 0. Callis married Martha Vinston. Martha 
Vinston was the sister of Robert Barret's wife, Barbara. Martha died 
the same year that V. 0. Callis purchased "Cuckooville" from the 
Barrets, leaving her husband with three children- 

(1) Eleanor Addison Callis, born 24 July 1784 

(2) Cleon M. Callis born 14 January 1786 

(3) Martha Vinston Callis. born 20 April 1788 

On May 4, 1790 Colonel Callis married his second wife. Anne Price of 
Hanover County. 

The children of this marriage were as follows: 
O.) Lavinia Callis, born 11 February 1791 

(2) Otho V. Callis, born 13 October 1792 

(3) Jane Cosby Callis. born 25 February 1795 

(4) Arthur Callis. born 23 December 1796 

(5) Tobias Shandy Callis, born 17 December 1799 
(.6) Caius Marcellus Callis, born 26 May 1804 

(7) Mary Elizabeth Callis, born 23 September 1806 

(8) Barbara Ann Callis, born 25 February 1314 

In Addition to the Cuckoo tract. Colonel Callis owned two other 
plantations in Louisa County. One, a 660 acre tract named "Cool 
Springs" lying on the waters of Elk Creek, was acquired from Thomas 
Poindexter on 13 March 1786. The other tract also on the waters of Elk 
Creek was that of "Plain Dealing." which was a portion of the David 

301 



Cosby land. In 1790, the estate of Cosby was sold by his unmarried 
daughter. W. 0. Callis, Cosby' s grandson, purchased the house tract of 
330 acres. 

V. 0. Callis found land acquisition and plantation operation to be a 
lucrative business. In 1788, he was the fiftieth largest and fifty- 
seventh wealthiest landowner in the county, which put him in the top ten 
percent on both counts. 

Colonel Callis also found time to work politics into his busy 
schedule. In 1788, he was elected delegate to the Virginia Convention, 
which ratified the Federal Constitution. He voted for its adoption on 
June 25, 1788. 

Callis was very active in state politics until 1800. He was a 
member of the state legislature in 1798 and voted for the famous 
Virginia Resolutions. After his retirement from state politics, Callis 
served as Louisa County Sheriff from 1805-1806, as well as serving on 
many commissions. 

Colonel Villiam Overton Callis died on 30 March 1814 at his home at 
Cuckoo after a colorful and adventure-filled life. His will is recorded 
in the Clerlr's Office of Louisa County in Will Book 5, page 489-490, and 
Will Book 9, page 453. 

The personality of this colonial gentlemen is probably best 
described in an excerpt from family papers which gives a general sketch 
of the Colonel as it states, "He possessed personal beauty and a charm 
of manner, which with his high character and intellectual gifts made him 
beloved not only in his own family but also by a number of friends. He 
was strict in all things regarding the proper bearing of a gentleman."

AZGAD SAPOLEOH BONAPARTE COSBY 

Azgad Napoleon Bonaparte Cosby was the son of Anne Booker Cosby. 
Anne Booker Cosby lived in the Louisa-Goochland County area of Virginia, 
where all the Cosbys living in the area were related. By the process of 
elimination, it seems possible that the husband of Anne and the father 
of Azgad was Preston Cosby (#111122416353). In 1829, evidently Anne was 
a widow, as she transferred by deed property to her son Azgad. The deed 
was witnessed by Robert S. Cosby and William Walton, probably related as 
brother or father of Azgad' s wives, who were Walton sisters. The 
brother of Robert S. Cosby, Charles Rufus Cosby, married a Miss Walton. 
The land conveyed by Anne Cosby to Azgad in 1829, had previously been 
conveyed to Anne Booker Cosby and her sister Elizabeth Jackson Cosby, in 
1810, by their stepmother, a widow Jackson who had married Zacheus 
Cosby. 

When Azgad married the second time to Nancy S. Walton, the witness 
and security were William J. Walton and Charles Johnston. David Cosby' s 
first wife's name was Mary Johnson f Johnston), the daughter of Charles 

302 



Johnson (Johnston), possibly the grandfather of this Charles Johnston. 
The line of Anne Booker Cosby is listed on the following page.

OVERTON FAMILY 

The records of the Overton family exist as far back as the 
thirteenth century with Adam de Overton, of Oxford County, appearing in 
1273 on the HUNDRED ROLLS. However, it is not until the Overton family 
records beginning with John Overton, of Easington, England that the 
Overton family can be traced until the present time. 



JOHlSr OVERTON 

John Overton was born in Easington Parish, Yorkshire, England. His 
son, Robert, installed a monument in the south-east corner of Easington 
Church in honor of John Overton and his mother, Joan. The Overton 
ancestral home, Overton Hall, was destroyed in 1887. He was a Justice 
of the Peace, a position of distinction. While he was an old man when 
the Civil War broke out in England, it was known that he was a strong 
supporter of King Charles' cause. 

The will of John Overton was signed July 20, 1648, along with a 
codicil signed on September 20, 1650. He named the children of his son 
Colonel Robert Overton, and his brother William. 

Tradition holds that he was of the same family as the famous Bishop 
William Overton of Coventry and Litchfield, England. 



ROBERT OVERTON 

Robert Overton was born in Easington Parish, Yorkshire, England in 
1609. In 1632 he married Ann Gardiner, the daughter of Jeremy Gardiner 
of Stratford Bow, Middlesex, England. Unlike his father, he left the 
church in 1650, and he and his wife joined a body of Independents who 
formed a protestant church. Their names were recorded in the church 
book which is now in the possession of the Presbyterian Church, Spring 
Bank, Hull. 

Robert Overton and Ann Gardiner were the parents of John Overton and 
William Overton. 

Robert was a real patriot, and in the "Thurloe Papers" (which 
contain much of his correspondence), he wrote, "If I be called to seal 
the cause of God and my country with my blood, by suffering death, or by 
bearing any testimony to the interests of my nation and the despised 
truths of these times, he is able to support and save me, as the sun to 
shine upon me — If I can but keep faith and a good conscience, I shall 
assuredly finish my course with Joy." 

"He was admitted to practice law at Gray's Inn on November 1, 1631. 
He was appointed deputy to Sir Thomas Fairfax. Governor of Pontrefact in 
1645. In 1647 he was placed in command of a Regiment of Foot Soldiers 

316 



and shortly thereafter appointed Governor of Hull. In the second Civil 
War, Overton's Regiment fought under Cromwell in Vales. In 1650, he 
accompanied Cromwell to Scotland and commanded a brigade of foot 
soldiers at the Battle of Dunbar and was designated Governor of 
Edinburgh by Cromwell. He commanded the reserve forces at Inverkeithing 
with Monck in Scotland and assisted in the subjugation of Scotland and 
the garrisoning of the Orkneys. At this time, Cromwell accompanied King 
Charles I back into England. 

Parliament paid him 400 pounds a year as a reward for his services 
and General Deane designated Overton to command all the English forces 
in Western Scotland. He was designated Governor of Aberdeen at that 
time. In 1653, he succeeded to the family estate at Easington, returned 
to England and became Governor of Hull. At that time he hailed with 
enthusiasm Cromwell's forcible dissolution of Parliament as he was 
dissatisfied with the slow process of reformation under that body. But 
shortly afterwards when Cromwell assumed the post of "protector" and 
dissolved the "Little Parliament", he became suspicious and told 
Cromwell that "if he saw he did design to set up himself and not the 
good of the nation, he would not set one foot before another to serve 
him", and retained his commission on the promise to surrender it if he 
could not conscientiously serve Cromwell. 

In December of 1654 he was arrested and sent prisoner to England on 
the charge of intending to head a military insurrection against the 
government, and placed in the Tower of London, where King Charles II 
wrote him promising forgiveness for past disloyalty and reward for 
service in effecting a restoration. 

After two years in the Tower, he was sent to Jersey and confined in 
Elizabeth's Castle until March 1658. His sister petitioned Richard 
Cromwell's parliament on February 3, 1659, to release her brother, and 
on March 16, after hearing Overton at his trial in London, Parliament 
voted his immediate release and pronounced his imprisonment at Jersey 
illegal. On October 12, 1659, he was one of the seven Commissioners 
appointed by Parliament to administer the armed Forces of England. He 
frustrated Moncks, who planned to bring him back to King Charles, and 
was again arrested and sent to the Tower in 1660. Soon liberated, he 
was almost immediately arrested as "refusing to take the oaths or give 
security". In January 1664, the government again sent him to Jersey, 
and he was still imprisoned there in February of 1668, after which all 
trace of him in England was lost. 

His military career furnished Scott material for his "Woodstock" and 
"Old Morality" and Milton celebrated his exploits in "Defensio Secunda" . 

The custom of the times was to send political prisoners to the 
Barbadoes or to Virginia, and it is believed he was transported to the 
Barbadoes, for Hatton's Christ Church, Barbadoes, 22 December 1679, 
includes one Robert Overton, living there alone, without family and 
without servants, possessing but five acres of land."

WILLIAM OVERTON 

Villiam Overton was born December 3, 1638 in Easington, England, 
family tradition holds that Villiam Overton came to Virginia in 1669 in 
search of his father, and failing to locate him. remained in New Kent 
County, Virginia, 

The following year, 1670, Elizabeth Waters, the daughter of Samuel 
and Ann Vaters of St. Sepulchre Parish, London, England, came to 
Virginia and she and Villiam were married on board the ship November 24, 
1670, anchored at Yorlrtown, Virginia. The cost of her coming to 
America, which he paid, was fifty pounds of tobacco. "At the 1907 
Jamestown Exposition, there was a picture showing the bride being met by 
William dressed in the garb of a Covenanter, showing that the tradition 
was that he had taken his father's position in religion." (MY SOUTHERN 
FAMILIES, by Hiram Kennedy Douglass) Their love story is said to be the 
basis of the famous novel, "To Have and To Hold". Before their 
marriage, William's father, Robert, was in prison and "all of his name 
were under ban. As the faithful nurse of Mary Elizabeth Waters brought 
word of the approach of the soldiers of King Charles searching for 
William, Mary Waters hid him in one of the secret chambers of her house, 
then at midnight wrapped in her red cloak and guided by the faithful 
nurse, she conducted her lover to a vessel bound for the new world, 
aided by the nurse's son, the Captain of the ship. Mary knew her 
Catholic parents would never consent to her marrying a "round head," so 
later, disguised as a gypsy maiden she entered a ship bound for 
Virginia, and, as the novelists sometimes have it, Love, Life, and 
Happiness. Young Overton exiled from all that was dear to him was one 
of the first to board the vessel when it touched at Yorktown to try to 
find some word of Mary Waters. The captain revealed her presence there 
and brought them together in marriage." RECORDS OF LEWIS, MERIWETHER, 
AND KINDRED FAMILIES, by Lottie Wright Davis. It is always nice to have 
two accounts of a wedding! 

On April 23, 1681 William Overton was deeded 4600 acres of land on 
the south side of the Pamunky River on Falling Creek for transporting 92 
people to the colony. In 1690 another deed, for 1690 acres of land, 
was recorded for land in St. Peter's Parish. 

When Elizabeth Waters died, her will, proved July 1700 gave ten 
shilings to Elizabeth Overton, "now in Virginia", and also the same 
amount to her son-in-law, William Overton. 

William Overton and Elizabeth Waters were the parents of: 

1. Elizabeth Overton born 28 June 1673 married Robert Anderson 

2. William Overton b 14 August 1675 d 18 June 1759 married

born in 1690 and died in 1739.

GEORGE OCTAVIOUS GUSS. SR. 
(#1242913 Guss) 

"SILVER STARS HIGHLIGHT CEREMONIES 

The awarding of the Silver Star, three Oak Leaf Clusters to the 
Distinguished Flying Cross, and three Oak Leaf Clusters to the Air Medal 
to Ma.J . George 0. Guss, 4781st Combat Crew Training Sq. , highlighted the 
recognition ceremony held Wednesday at the Silver Wings Club. 

Major Guss received the Silver Star, by distinguishing himself by 
gallantry in connection with military operations against an opposing 
armed force near Hanoi, North Vietnam, last year. Major Guss flew as an 
F-105F pilot, providing surface-to-air missile suppression as sixteen F- 
105 Thunderchiefs rendered a large, extremely vital concrete products 
plant completely unservlcable. 

Although flying over heavy clouds that concealed a missile until it 
exploded behind his aircraft, Maj . Guss remained within the range of 
several active missile sites to suppress the hostile installations and 
decoy the radar-guided missiles away from the other mission aircraft. 
His actions contributed significantly to the successful mission as all 
aircraft returned safely. 

A veteran with 25 years service, Major Guss came to Perrin (air 

410 



force school) In March from an assignment with the 355th Tactical 
FiKhter Win?;, Takhli AB, Thailand. 

He is a native of Glen Allen. Va. MaJ . Guss is married and he and 
his wife and three children live in Sherman."
