101 "Clyde Elliott Rumsey was 18 in his father's probate of 1905, and 22 when he married in 1909. In 1959 he wrote from Spotsylvania, Va: "We left Michigan in 1929 on account of my wife's health and went to Guilford College, N.C., was in N.C. 20 years and sold out as my youngest boy Gene was a farmer clear through. He was offered good jobs when he graduated from school in N.C., but refused. While he was in the army I sold out and bought up here in Virginia for more work land and timber, as we combine forestry with our farming. The last two years Gene has been County Fire Warden for the State. His division Headquarters are in Charlottesville. As we run beef cattle and hogs, I can do most of the tractor work and he has time off to help with the rest."

His business card gives: "Hilly Acre Farm, / C.E. and G.E. Rumsey / Spotsylvania Virginia, R.R.3 / Registered Berkshires / Breeding stock for sale
at all times / Farm located 22 miles Southwest of Fredericksburg/on State Route 208."

(Miss Alice A. Rumsey of Jackson, Mich, b 25 Apr 1886, who sent information
from Mrs. Clyde E. Rumsey in 1969, said: "I am quite sure the birth date for
Clyde should be 1887, as I think he is a little younger than I." This agrees with the 1900 census, though his birth was entered before hers in Hillsdale VR
for same year.)

"Asa" Nichols, probably a misunderstanding of "A.Z.", and Edna were in Ransom Tp, Hillsdale Co, in the 1900 census. Their eldest of four children was Ava, aged 10 years.

Clyde E. and Ava N. Rumsey were living close to his widowed mother in 1910, in Jefferson Tp, Hillsdale Co, having been married less than a year. He was 23 and a farmer, she was 20." (Rumsey, Descendants of Simon Rumsey
Rumsey, Clyde Elliott (I7931)
 
102 "Edward died at the age of eighty-six years, when on one of his trips his horse fell and so injured him that he died as a result. He spent his last years with his son, Merrill. Rice Harding writes, in December, 1908:

"I am the only living relative who knows where he was buried, and I have a permit to remove the remains and shall do so in the spring, as he is buried in a neglected graveyard. I shall remove him to my lot in Buchanan, [Michigan]."

According to family tradition, like the other brothers, he is said to have vowed vengeance against the English, and made oath to kill as many as he could. With this end in view, he tried to enter the Revolutionary Army, but being only twelve years old, was not allowed to do so, and only got in as a driver of a baggage team, seizing, however, occasion as he could to use a gun against the foe. At sixteen he was regularly enlisted, and at the conclusion of peace, mustered out.

According to the records of the US Pension office, on Mar. 25, 1833, while living at Salt Creek, OH, he made application for pension, which was granted, for eleven months active service as a private in the Connecticut troops. It appears that he enlisted from Lyme, and served under Captain Lord and Colonel Stare. At one time he was wounded and carried off the field, but after recovery, re-enlisted and served until the war closed. He then went to live with his grandfather in Lyme, CT, but eventually moved to Vermont, where he settled at Onion River. In 1810 he left Vermont and went to Ohio, where he already had numerous relatives, settled near Sandyville, Tuscarawas Co., and continued preaching. For a great many years he was a missionary and Baptist preacher, going from place to place preaching to the scattered faithful, being the first minister of that description in Ohio. In 1823 he moved to Holmes Co., OH; went to Henry Co., IL in 1837 and to La Porte Co., IN in 1851. When he was seventy-five years old he rode on horseback twelve hundred miles on a trip to Illinois, thence returning to Ohio, then to his old home in Vermont, and back again to Ohio."

104 "In Bronson Tp, Branch Co, in 1900, farmer Levi Schultz and his wife Sophia had with them their grandson, Verna Leib aged 17, a farm laborer born in May 1883.

When they were married in December 1903, Vern L. Leib gave his age as 21, a farmer. Iva M. Rumsey was 16. Both were residents of Noble, but were married across the state line in Indiana. The names of their parents were given in full. Witnesses were "Sair" Long, perhaps the minister's wife, and Dora Shutt.

In the 1910 census of Noble, Iva Lieb was with her parents, married 6 years (not divorced or a widow), and had had but one child - Mable Lieb who was 5 years old.

In 1920, in Gilead Twp, Branch Co, Mich, George A. Lytle was 42, b Indiana, his wife Iva M. was 32, b Mich. With them were "Bulah" Lytle age 5 years 2
months, and LeRoy Lytle age 1 year 7 months, both born in Michigan, and Mabel B. Leib, daughter age 25, b Mich.

In 1930 the Lytle family was in Millgrove Twp, Steuben Co, Indiana. George was now 52, had been married (his 1st) at age 35. Iva M. was 42, and
had been married at age 24, i.e. ca 1911-12, so this must have been her marriage to George Lytle, not her first marriage. With them still were Beulah M. Lytle 15, b Indiana this time, and LeRoy L. Lytle 11.

In the 1946 estate of her mother, Sarah Ann Rumsey, Iva Lytle was 58, her address given as Rte 1, Bronson, Mich." (Rumsey, Descendants of Simon Rumsey
Leib, LaVerne L. (I8946)
 
105 "In the Detroit City Directory of 1954 Erwin Henry Rumsey lived at 19353
Bloom Ave, and worked for Barns Gulf Service. In 1963 he lived in Warren,
Macomb Co, Mich, a suburb of Detroit." (Rumsey, Descendants of Simon Rumsey
Rumsey, Erwin Henry (I7935)
 
106 "John Rumsey, son of Nathaniel and Betsey (Rider) Rumsey, settled in Matteson Tp, Branch Co, Mich, where he first purchased land in Section 26, in 1846. He farmed and lived there for 20 years. He then purchased a farm of 80 acres in Section 14, Noble Tp, and made it one of the best farms of the region, with a neat substantial dwelling, suitable barns and outhouses, and one of the finest orchards in the township. He was a Menonite, and a Democrat. (BCM)

(John had move to Noble by 1860. Branch Co deeds have not been checked to learn when he first purchased land in Matteson and in Noble.)

John was married in Matteson in 1841, the witnesses being Elizabeth and William Staily. They were there in the 1850 census. John was 27, a farmer for whom no real estate was listed. His wife Maria was 28 and could neither read nor write. They had four children: George 8, Luana 6, Jane 3 and Margaritt 1 year old. They were living not far from his brothers Stephen and George Rumsey.

In 1860, John and Maria were in Noble Tp, P.O. Round Lake. Both were 37 years of age, and he had only $450 in real estate and $250 in personal property. Maria was still illiterate. Their family now consisted of George W. 17, Lowana 15, Jane 13, Margaret 12, Susan 6, and John A. 1 year.

Maria died in 1868, and later that year John married again. But he lost his second wife Eliza Jane before the 1870 census, and had no surviving issue by her. Eliza Jane Peterson was 42 when married, born in Green Co, Ohio, but a resident of Mill Grove, Ind. (Not found there in the 1860 census.) Witnesses to this marriage were Lester Peterson and Margaret Rumsey, who were married
less than a month later, he a resident of Mill Grove. It is quite possible that Eliza Jane was a widow, with Lester her son.

John Rumsey had no wife in the 1870 census, when he was 46 and had land worth $2000 and personal property worth $600. Keeping house for him in Noble was his daughter Mary L."Gibson", who had married "Stuart Gibson" the previous December 1869. (The names should be reversed in this census, Stuart being the last name.) Mary was 26, and Stuart was 29, another farmer. The only other
child still at home was John A. Rumsey who was 12.

Also in Noble in 1870 were Jacob and Mary Imhoof, ages 32 and 26, both born in Ohio. He was a farmer with $1300 and $500 in real and personal property. Their children were Elizabeth 8 and Sarah 6, born in Indiana, and Catharine 4
and Mary 2, born in Michigan.

John Rumsey married the widow Mary Imhoof as his third wife in July 1880, (though the 1880 census taken 25 June had them already married), the witnesses being Eunice Earl and George Cauright. Mary appeared with him in the census that year, though married after the official census date of June 1st. John was "54", Mary 37, and his son John was aged 21. Three of Mary's "Imhoff" children were also with them, called step-children of John Rumsey. They were John 7, Samuel 5 and Annetta 3. Mary had other Imhoof child named Peter (VHR) who never appeared with her in the census, probably born soon after the 1870 census
and possibly died before 1880.

The delayed birth record of Ernest Rumsey, son of John Rumsey and Mary Anglemyre, filed in Branch Co 31 Dec 1941, gave their residence as Greenfield
Mills, (LaGrange Co), Ind, in 1883, though the birthplace of Ernest was in Noble, Mich (VR G:303). (His eldest half-brother George was living there in 1880.)

The death record of John5 Rumsey gave his father's name as Byron Rumsey! John had a grandson of that name who had died five years before, but there are
no known early Rumseys of that name who could have been father of John, earliest b 1847. And the Branch County history named his parents as Nathaniel Rumsey and the Betsey Rider who married (2) Benjamin Stebbins in Marion Co, Ohio. No probate was indexed in Branch Co for John Rumsey.

In 1900, widow Mary Rumsey was with John A. Rumsey in Noble, and called his mother-in-law. She was also his step-mother. She was 55 and had borne 9
children, all of whom were living. This would be her 8 Imhoof children and 1 Rumsey child, though 1 of the Imhoof children had presumably died young.

Her son Ernest Rumsey, aged 17, was called brother-in-law, living with William Henderson and his wife Elizabeth (Imhoof), in Cheshire, Allegan Co, Mich, working for them as a farm laborer. Elizabeth was his half-sister.

Mary Rumsey's death record gave the names of both her parents, residents of Michigan. In the 1880 census their birthplaces were given as Pennsylvania, and in 1900 as Ohio." (Rumsey, Descendants of Simon Rumsey
Rumsey, John (I5492)
 
107 "Lloyd Moses Rumsey had been living with his daughter Loretta Travis, at
1036 Maple Ave, Jackson, Jackson Co, Mich, before his death. Being a veteran
of World War I, he went to the Veterans' Hospital, Ann Arbor when he became
ill, and died there." (Rumsey, Descendants of Simon Rumsey)

During World War I, Lloyd served as a private in the Michigan 338 Ambulance Co. 
Rumsey, Lloyd Moses (I7932)
 
108 "Neil A. Z. Rumsey's maternal grandfather, A. Z. Nichols, was asked for a
first name when he went into the navy so adopted the name Abner. However, Neil
Rumsey's middle initials do not stand for any name.

In July 1964, his daughter Suzanne wrote from 126-B St.Andrews Blvd,
Charleston, SC, 19407, expressing a real interest in the genealogy of Thomas5
Rumsey I had done for the descendants, which those in Michigan had copied and
distributed among various branches of the family. At that time she reported
that she was "a junior at St.Andrew's Parish Senior High School in Charleston,
South Carolina. My brother, twenty-two years old, is a senior at Virginia
Polytechnic Institute at Blacksburg, majoring in Mechanical Engineering. My
sister, twenty-one years old, attended William and Mary College in Norfolk,
Virginia, and now lives in Richmond. I plan to attend Virginia Tech. Since my
father is on construction (tunnels, bridges, and land fills, such as they did
at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, where we lived for three years),
we move quite frequently...."

Douglas B. Rumsey found in US Search on the Internet, in 2003, a Diane
(Sinhel) Rumsey ae 50, daughter of N.S. Sinhel, ae 84, & Ina (Olson) Sinhel, ae
82. These were the only Sinhels in N.C. Gene Elbert Rumsey had reported a 2nd
marriage for Joseph Neil, but did not have the name, and DBR surmised this was
that person." (Rumsey, "Descendants of Simon Rumsey")

109 "Richard married and settled at Canaan, New Hampshire. He was a Revolutionary soldier. According to the authority of a granddaughter, he had a family of ten children." (Otis, Otis Family in AmericaOtis, Richard (I3122)
 
110 "Richard was called of Portsmouth at the time of his marriage to Jane, described as of Taunton. It is not proved that this was the same man who later married Mary Tisdale, but there is every reason to suppose that he was the same. It has been suggested that Jane's husband was of Portsmouth, N. H., because there was a Haskins family near there at Great Island. However, the editors of Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire (pp. 316-317) repudiate this suggestion; no Richard is found in that family or region; and if from there, the Taunton record would more likely have described him as of Piscataqua than as of Portsmouth. On the other hand, members of the William Hoskins family of Plymouth were already living at Taunton, and Richard may have gone in youth to Portsmouth, R. I., no great distance to the south of Taunton.

Richard lived in the South Purchase of Taunton, which was set off in 1712 as the town of Dighton. He was one of the signers, 11 Oct. 1708, of the petition for the erection of a township in the South Purchase. He is proved brother of John Hoskins or Haskins of Taunton and Dighton, and was executor of his will. The name was spelled in both forms at this period both in Bristol County, Mass., and in Norwich, Conn., but Haskins became the standard form in both places, and is used as the preferred form in the printed Taunton Vital Records.

Whether Richard had any surviving issue by Jane is not known. She could have been mother of John and Mercy, evidently the oldest children, but from Mary on they must belong to Mary Tisdale, since Mary was named in her grandfather Tisdale's will, and it physically possible that all the children were by Mary Tisdale.

Richard Hoskins was one of those who contributed money for the Canada Expedition in 1690. He bought 170Ła acres from Samuel and Hannah Waldron, 9 May 1692, and on 19 Feb. 1694/5 bought several pieces of land from Mary Street which had belonged originally to her father, Francis Street. On 2 Sept. 1695, he bought from Joseph Tisdale, whose wife Mary consented. This was an uncle of Richard's wife. On 2 Dec. 1696, Richard Haskins of Taunton, for ¹3 14s. in silver money of New England, sold to Philip King of Taunton, half a purchase right, including future divisions of land. Two acres were laid out to Richard Haskins, 11 Mar. 1696/7, adjoining the westerly side of a brook called Browne's Brook, flanking his own former land. On 29 Aug. 1705, Joseph Tisdale of Taunton, for a horse valued at ¹8, sold to Richard Haskins of Taunton, two or three acres bounded by Haskins' land, mentioning Browne's Brook. Benedict Arnold of Newport, R. I., on 29 Nov. 1705, for ¹300, conveyed to Richard Haskins of Taunton, weaver, certain divisions in the Township of Taunton on the west side of Taunton River.

On 20 Jan. 1708/9, Richard Haskins of Taunton, for ¹11, sold to Gilbert Winslow of Swansea, 1Ła acres in Swansea, a small piece of salt meadow. Samuel Waldron of Dighton, on 22 Feb. 1713/14, in an exchange of land, conveyed to Richard Haskins of Dighton lots 64 and 65 in the upper division, known as Taunton South Purchase but now within the limits of the town of Dighton, each lot supposed to contain between 60 and 70 acres.

On 16 Mar. 1714/15, at a meeting of the Proprietors of the South Purchase, "Richard Hoskins was chosen Clarke for ye South Purchase in Dighton and was sworne to the faithful Discharge of ye office of Clarke," attested by Jared Talbot, Justice. On 1 Mar. 1716/17, Richard Haskins of Dighton, for ¹900, sold to Mr. Daniel King of Scituate, "my Dwelling house, shop, and barne" and his home land in Dighton, his wife Mary releasing her right of dower.

He rendered his final accounting as executor of his brother John's estate, 2 Apr. 1717, and made his first purchase in Norwich, Conn., just a week later.

On 9 Apr. 1717, Thomas Stodder of Norwich, with the consent of his wife Deborah, for ¹604, sold to Richard Haskins of the Town of "Deiton," County of Bristoll, Massachusetts Bay, 199 acres in eight parcels adjoining together "upon ye middle hill . . . . with ye two Dwelling houses and ye Barn."

The inventory of the estate of Richard Haskins of Norwich "who dyed December ye 26: 1717" was taken 21 Jan. 1717/18 by Obadiah Smith, Joseph Kingsbury, and Jonathan Metcalf; and was sworn in Court by his widow, Mrs Mary Haskins, 11 Feb. 1717/18. The house and land were valued at ¹604; other items, including a bill and bond from Daniel King and a bond from James Tisdale, totaled over ¹446. Administration was granted the same date to Mary and John Haskins of Norwich. The order of distribution, 14 July 1719, permitted the eldest son to retain the real estate, by giving security to the other heirs. The widow was to have her third; the eldest son, a double portion amounting to ¹185.13.5; the eldest daughter, Mercy, 50s. with what she had in her father's lifetime; and each of the other seven children, ¹92.16.8Ła. There is a receipt in the file from Joseph Kingsbury to John Haskins "upon ye account of what was du to me from his father," and on 1 Apr. 1718, Daniel Haskins receipted to John Haskins for "six shilins in mony due to me from my fathers Estate." An administration account includes two "Journeys to Dighton 24 days to get in ye Debts at 4s P day." [Probate Rec. New London, B-249; J2-24, 53; File 2522.]

On 20 Mar. 1727, John Hoskins of Norwich conveyed to his brother, Daniel Hoskins, 48 acres on Middle Hill, for what is due towards his portion and also for what is due to him for sister Rebecca Hoskins' portion, as Daniel is guardian to said Rebecca.

The above records, and the grandfather Tisdale's will, prove that the following children belong to Richard: John, Mercy, Mary, Daniel, and Rebecca. Sarah, Elizabeth, and Hannah were married in Norwich and cannot be placed in a later generation. This accounts for eight of the nine children who are known to have survived; the evidence for Martha is not so good, but in additiona to the reasons stated in The Waterman Family (1-102 to 106) for believing her to be a Haskins, Mary Tisdale had a sister of that name." (Waterman, The Granberry Family

111 "Robert enlisted in Capt. Ely's Comany Mar.17, 1777, and served three years; he then re-enlisted, and deserted July 13, 1782. Later he joined General LaFayette's command somewhere up the Hudson River, and served until the close of the war. To desert was not at that time considered unusual, however, and the men left, joined their companies, or more often returned and planted their farms when they pleased. His sword is now in the possession of his great, great grandson - John M. Otis" (Otis, Otis Family in AmericaOtis, Robert (I3121)
 
112 "Syntha" Rumsey was in the 1820 census of Scipio, Cayuga Co. Her household had 3 females under 10 (Marabah, Lucy, Nancy), 1 female 10-15 (Phebe), 1 male 16-18 (John) and another 16-25 (Isaac), 1 female 16-25 (Jane), 1 female 26-44 and 1 male 45 or over.

In 1843 Cynthia Rumsey of Veteran, widow, sold land on 22 Mar to Wessel Vernooy and others. 
Mosher, Cynthia (I4947)
 
113 "The "Ernes" Rumsey born April 1883 found in the 1900 census of Cheshire Tp, Allegan Co, Mich, brother-in-law to William Henderson, was probably the above Ernest. Henderson's wife Elizabeth was 38, which would correspond to Ernest's step-sister, Elizabeth Imhoof, of earlier enumerations. (See #136)

A letter addressed to Ernest Rumsey at Bronson, Mich, written 21 May 1961, was forwarded to his daughter, Mrs. Genese Teller, RFD #1, Allen, Mich. Her reply gave no specific data, but said it would take some time to get it together, as she had 11 children, 21 grandchildren and 3 greats, with another on the way. Also, her sister Grace had been married twice and had 3 deaths in her family. Nothing further was heard from Genese.

In 1910 Earnest Rumsey of Noble was listed two farms from his half-brother, John A. Rumsey. He was 27, and had been married 7 years to Nellie who was 24. Their two daughters were "Genere" (as it appeared) 5, and Grace 4.

Walter Rumsey of Orland, Ind (#136-14), told me that Genese was about the age of his wife, who was born Dec 1898. But Genese was 7 years younger, and her parents were not even married in 1900. Walter also said Grace was much younger. Walter mentioned only one husband for Grace.

DBR found Grace, dau of Ernest, in the 1930 census of Bronson Village (ED4), living with her parents at age 25, having been married at age 16. She
had a son Ernest M. age 8. (She probably remarried.) In Bronson Twp there were Michael D. and Almira 75 Kashmer, perhaps too old to be parents of Earl. (DBR)" (Rumsey, Descendants of Simon Rumsey

131 (Research):As pointed out by Shelford, "James is a common name in the family. A James Rumsey received a grant of land in Vermont (Recorded in Albany) for service in the French and Indian War. Who was he? [1764, Jan. 16 - Petition of Lts..., James Rumsey,...praying a grant of 16,000 acres of land on the Otter Creek, on the east side of Lake Champlain. (Calendar of N.Y. Colonial Manuscripts - Indorsed Land Papers 1743-1803 (pub. by Weed Parsons & Co 1864), p.383)]

"There were two James Rumseys in the Cornwall township census of 1790, both with three male children under 16; one of these was James, son of Simon III [#23], (whose name was given as Joseph in Mrs. Freeman's list). James, son of Phineas [#44], had returned from Nova Scotia in 1786 but was supposed to have stayed with his father for some time. In 1790 he was not in Ulster County, where he went later. Some of Phineas's grandchildren must have been with him to give three males under 16 years in 1790.

"A James Rumsey was 1st Lieutenant in John Morin Scott's provincial brigade recruited in Ulster, Suffolk and Orange Counties in 1776." (National Archives Folder #95-1 (page stamped #8, written #61), Ser. M246, Roll 73 - "Col Samuel Drake's Regt - 3rd Regt. of ? , Col Drake Commanding. 1st Lieut James Rumsey on command after cloathing for the men, Oct. 5, 1776." This may be the Lt. of
the Vermont land grant - JR)

"There was also a James in the Dutchess militia during the Revolution." (Roberts; New York in the Revolution, p.153,240)

"There was a James Rumsey in the Haverstraw Militia [then Orange Co, now Rockland Co] during the Revolution, where Elizabeth Rumsey was enumerated in the 1790 census with no adult male in the household [but one under 16], and a total of four females." So James3 was probably dead. If living in 1796, he would have joined Elizabeth in the Osborn deed below.

There was also an unidentified James Rumsey in the 1810 census of Monroe, Orange Co, who was over 45. With him were three males and one female under 10,
one female 16-25, and one female 26-44. James3 (#10) was presumed dead by 1790. It can't be James4 (#23) for he was listed in Ulysses, Cayuga Co, in
1810. And James4 (#44) was in Ulster Co.

None of the above military records have been specifically identified with James, the son of Simon2 Rumsey, who seems to have married rather late in life, perhaps because of an early military career. He was probably already 21 when
he first appeared in court in 1754,

Vol.1), has deeds to Simon Rumsey on pp 337, 378, 379, 380, 371, and he
witnessed a deed from Samuel King to Israel and David Parshall, 18 Feb 1701/2.
In the deed of 2 Nov 1699 Simon Rumsey was termed a mariner. He was one of the
founders of Gnat Farms (VES).

The Diary of Joshua Hempstead of New London, Conn., published by the New
London County Historical Society, Vol.1 (1901), showed the following:

Symon Rumsey's name is entered as Ramsey in the Salmon records and in the
recording of his will, but as Rumsey in the Hempstead diary. 
Rumsey, Symon (I4927)
 
134 (Research):Derrick's Blevins-Morelock Ancestry family tree states her last name to be Waddle. [Unknown], Beulah (I7620)
 
135 (Research):Henry Slade died at the age of 15. Slade, Henry (I1476)
 
136 (Research):I have not been able to find any information concerning Fred Rumsey as an adult. This, coupled with the fact that he is not present in the family photograph taken about 1895, leads me to believe that he must have died at a young age. Rumsey, Fred (I4923)
 
137 (Research):In 1900, only five of Elizabeth's seven children were still living. Paynter, Elizabeth (I958)
 
138 (Research):In the 1870 census, there is a Samuel McConnell listed adjacent to John. Could this be his brother? McConnell, John S. (I4922)
 
139 (Research):In the 1900 census there is a Thomas W. Ballou, married to Alice S., who may be the oldest child of Charles Wesley Ballow and Judith Woodson McGraw. Ballow, Thomas W. (I8101)
 
140 (Research):It is assumed that Irene was first married to Mr. Anderson based on the fact that this is shown as her last name on the 1900 census, though she is listed as being widowed. The estimated date for this marriage comes from the 1930 census where Irene states her age to be 22 at the time of her first marriage. Ballou, Irene Huntington (I6668)
 
141 (Research):It is not know who the 14 year old William Skillin is that is living with Hance and his family in the 1850 census. Skillin, Hance (I6115)
 
142 (Research):It is not known if William is actually the son of James and Martha, but it is currently presumed because he is listed with them on the passenger list of the ship Salem, which arrived in New York City on 15 Mar 1828. There is an appropriately aged William in the 1840 census of James that could be William, but the only William listed in the 1850 census is only 5 years old and could not be the same person. It is therefore assumed that the first William died sometime between the family's arrival in 1828 and the 1850 census. Because the name was reused in 1844, he must have died prior to that time (perhaps between the birth of Charles in 1843 and William in 1844)

An unaccounted for William is listed on the 1850 census of James' brother Hance, but the age of 14 does not point to it being this individual. 
Skillin, William (I7957)
 
143 (Research):It is not known what became of Abigail. There is no mention or record of her that has been found. Rumsey, Abigail (I5077)
 
144 (Research):It is presumed that "Alexander Skillen" listed on the 1900 census must be in error and corresponds to Ella Dover. The fact that her sister and brother are with them (as they were in the 1895, 1905 and 1910 census) and the dates matching points to this being some type of error on the census taker's part. Dover, Ella G. (I4689)
 
145 (Research):It may be that James' will was sent for probate in 1866, but he actually died in 1870? McConnell, James (I5325)
 
146 (Research):James Skillin does not appear in the 1858 New York City Business Directory, so he must have moved to Mt. Morris between 1854 and 1858. Skillin, James (I6098)
 
147 (Research):Julian was a tobacconist for the Imperial Tobacco Co. Abbitt, Julian Hamner (I7661)
 
148 (Research):Louise Beverly Jones' grandmother and her family received Bounty Lands for his service. Smallwood, Capt. Heaberd (I8111)
 
149 (Research):Mary was still living at the time of her son William's death. Dawley, Mary Eliza (I8376)
 
150 (Research):Name: Aaron J. Cass
Location 2: r 834 Walker
Occupation: teamster
Year: 1889, 1890

Cass, Aaron Jefferson (I6089)
