151 (Research):On 19 Dec 1829, John Million was the executor of David Lamon's estate. Million, John (I21937)
 
152 (Research):Ruthie is found living next to her parents in Frankfort during the 1930 census, but it is unclear if her husband George is the same man as Nathaniel, or these are two different marriages. Also, the children listed with her (Bert and Milton) do not correspond to any of the children known to be from Ruthie and Nathaniel's marriage. Scoville, Ruthie Allen (I6192)

157 (Research):Stephen Scoville was the youngest son of Arthur Scoville. As he was born some eight to twelve years after Arthur's son John was born about 1672, it has been conjectured that Stephen was not the son of Joanna, but of a second wife. This conjecture seems probably, but it should be understood that there is no documentary evidence that Arthur Scoville married a second time, nor any such evidence that a son Stephen was born to Arthur by such an alleged second wife. There is circumstantial evidence that Stephen was a son of Arthur:

1. Stephen named a son Arthur.

2. There is on record at Lyme a deed of Peter Pratt to Stephen Scoville of land in Lyme, dated 22 Dec 1715. This deed was witnessed by William Borden and Joanna Scoville. William Borden was the husband of Arthur's daughter Elizabeth. If we presume that Joanna Scoville was not Joanna, first wife of Arthur, but his granddaughter, born in 1689, daughter of John Scoville of Middletown. It seems strange that a young girl in Middletown should witness a deed execute in Lyme. If this identification is rejected, then Joanna must have been the wife of the first Arthur, and the conjecture of Arthur's second marriage falls to the ground.

3. When in 1735 Stephen (2) Scoville and James (3) Scoville of Wallingford-Meriden were associated in the purchase of a tract of land in Harwinton, James sold and Stephen gave the land to his son Ezekiel. THese facts show clearly that Stephen was included in the family circle, who seem to have had a strong family feeling. 
Scoville, Stephen (I9434)
 
158 (Research):The 1865 census said that Mary Rumsey had had 10 children. The unknown ones are placed in the logical gaps, or where indicated by the census records. Rumsey, Ebenezer (I5330)
 
159 (Research):The 1875 census lists this individual as C.H. Skillen, which likely stands for Charles Henry. Skillin, Henry (I6093)
 
160 (Research):The 1900 census lists William and Edit as son and daughter of Isaac Newton Jones, but states that Louise had only had two children (one of which was living). This leads me to conclude that the other two children must have been from a previous marriage. [Unknown], Ida S. (I6634)
 
161 (Research):The 1910 census lists Matilda's surname as Inhous, though there is no record of here being married to an Inhous. Combs, Matilda G. (I6092)
 
162 (Research):The Ballow Bible states that William was born on a Sunday in April 1784, but the actual date is illegilble. Ballow, William (I6675)
 
163 (Research):The California Birth Index lists Elaine's maiden name as Odrer. McGerty, Elaine H. (I7966)
 
164 (Research):The Callan Family Tree Ancestry tree states her last name to be Boyd. [Unknown], Leonara C. (I7619)
 
165 (Research):The childrens birth and death dates listed are from Victor E. Shelford. The following is a list of the family according to James Spencer Rumsey:

Simon 1749 - 1771
Phoebe 4 Sep 1749 - 17 Jun 1820
John Sigler 1753 - 10 Aug 1829
David 1755 - 2 Jul 1829
Jonathan Dec 1757 - Mar 1834
Moses Jul 1758
James 4 Apr 1759 - 22 Aug 1842
Jemima 1762 -
Ruth 12 May 1764 - 17 Aug 1841
Isaac 16 Sep 1765 -
Nathan 8 Jul 1767 - 23 May 1817
Joshua 14 Jun 1768 - 27 Mar 1826
Nathaniel 1770 -
Jeremiah 10 Oct 1772 - 21 Jul 1861
William 9 May 1774 
Rumsey, Simon (I4936)
 
166 (Research):The claim of descent from Sir Thomas More as shown by genealogists in the William and Mary Quarterly in 1907 was later shown to be based on forged documents. Moore, Col. Augustine (I2594)
 
167 (Research):The marriage of Daniel Corwin to Elizabeth Cleaves in Jan 1723 could refer to Mary's husband, her son, or another Daniel. Mather's Refugees says this was a second marriage for Mary's husband. Rumsey, Mary (I4930)
 
168 (Research):The source from which this family's information comes from states that the compiler is not positive this Henry Mapes and his family was actually the son of Henry Mapes of Orange Co., NY. The marriage date of 27 Jul 1790 was given by the descendants of Henry Mapes and Sally McIlwain and, this being under 25 years from the birth date, he is assumed to be the same person. Mapes, Henry (I5343)
 
169 (Research):The specific date of his marriage was not entered into the Salmon Record, but was placed between entries of 22 Feb and 12 Jun 1753. Rumsey, Simon (I4932)
 
170 (Research):There is a Capt. Roger and Fanny Holcomb buried in the Grassy Hill Cemetery which could possibly be the parents of Harriet. Holcomb, Harriet (I6946)
 
171 (Research):There is a Chauncey and Urania Morris buried in the Grassy Hill Cemetery which could be the parents of Russell Morris. Morris, Russell (I6944)
 
172 (Research):There is a discrepancy between the marriage date cited by Nora White and the dates of Samuel and Nancy's children's birth. Perhaps Nora was mistaken about the marriage date, or 1795 could have been the date the marriage was recorded and the marriage actually took place a few years earlier. McConnell, Samuel (I7178)
 
173 (Research):There is a John (30) and Barbara Rozak (26) who arrived on the S.S. Circassia on 24 Sep 1883 from Austria. While their birth and arrival dates are close to what John states on the 1920 census, they are travelling with a Jack (?), age 5, and Maria, age 8 months, which do not align with the known children.

Under the leadership of Palacky a Slavic congress assembled at Prague in the Revolution of 1848, but by 1849, although the Czech peasentry had been emancipated, absolute Austrian domination had been forcibly restored. Due to this, the birth and marriage locations of John and Barbara Razak are placed in the Bohemian province of Austria, as opposed to the Czech Republic. It was not until 1918 that full independence was reached and Bohemia became part of the new state of Czechoslovakia. 
Razak, John (I85)
 
174 (Research):There is a John Skillin listed in the 1870 Census in Forestport, Oneida Co., New York which could possibly be this individual. His date of birth is 1811, he is married to Mary and has two children living with him; Rebecca, 21, and William, 19. These are both commonly used family names and is further evidence that this may be our John Skillin. However, the children are stated to have been born in Ireland, which would conflict with the notion that John's father William came with the family from Ireland between 1819 and 1830. If this were the case, one would expect that John's children would have been born in New York. Skillin, John (I6961)
 
175 (Research):There is a William Skillen shown on a passenger list of the ship Josephine, which arrived in New York City on 15 Apr 1830. The age (18) and occupation (tailor) seem to fit for this individual, but there is no definitive proof that these two are the same person. Skillin, William (I6960)
 
176 (Research):There is an obituary published in the New York Spectator, dated 18 Nov 1843, for a William Skillin. It reads

Died. On Wednesday morning, 15th inst. WILLIAM SKILLIN, aged 81 years.

While this is not a perfect perfect with the existing dates, it is not far off.

In the 1840 New York City Directory, a Samuel Skillin is found occupying 13 Doyers and working as a tailor. It is unknown how this Samuel Skillin is related to the family. 
Skillin, William (I6263)
 
177 (Research):There was another Andrew Rumsey the same age in the 1850 census of Pike Co, Ohio, with his mother Leah born in Pennsylvania, to whom this family could also belong. But the Illinois birthplace of John T. makes the above identification more likely. Rumsey, Andrew (I10088)
 
178 (Research):This individual seems to be particularly difficult to pin down. I have three seperate sources giving entirely different accounts of his years of birth and death, wives and children. Much more investigation needs to be done here to sort him out. Ballow, Thomas (I7108)
 
179 (Research):While the book "The Frankfort Story" states that William Skillin was the son of William Skillin and Agnes Vaugh, other pieces of information point to James and Martha Skillin as his parents. Most notably are the census records which show that William had a brother Charles (whom we know travelled with him to Kansas in 1874) and show the appropriate birth years for both. There is also no record of a Agnes Vaugh(n) or Agnes Skillin in any census records.

Sandy Martinez stated that the lineage of William Skillin was
William Skillin m. Agnes Vaughn
Hance Skillin m. Elizabeth ?
William Skillin m. Agnes McWaugh
Thomas Skillin m. Deborah ?

Again, I can find no census records that support this lineage. There is a Hance Skillin who married an Eliza, but is too young to have been the grandfather of William. Instead, I suspect that through time, family records have become confused and the actual lineage is

i) William's parents are James and Martha Skillin
ii) Hance Skillin is somehow related to James Skillin (possibly his brother)
iii) James' (and possibly Hance's) parents may have been William and Agnes Vaugh(n) or McWaugh (though no proof of this has been found) 
Skillin, William (I3378)
 
180 (Research):William H.4 has been listed in the family for reasons shown. But Harry Hawkins Smith did not include him in his list of the children. It is very doubtful that he was living at the time Peter4 died in 1843, for he is not listed among all the brothers and sisters as heirs. William's death may have been confused with that of his nephew, William H., who died 1850 in Elmira, and is listed in Peter's estate as son of his brother Phineas dec'd. Rumsey, William H. (I5133)
 
181 1566 - Sheriff of Norwich
1590 - Mayor of Norwich
1591-1592 - Alderman of Norwich
1591 - rebuilt "Rackheath Hall" about 10 miles from Norwich 
Pettus, Thomas (I3757)

Edwin John Williams Passes

The Grim Reaper visited Nora on last Saturday and claimed another one of our old timers and highly respected Citizens -- "Ted" Williams, as he was known to most of us. Mr. Williams was one of the early settlers of this county and always took an active part in the affairs of his community. He was an enthusiastic supporter of our county fair for many years, and he could always be depended upon to do his part when duty called.

Edwin John Williams was born in England May 11, 1846, and departed his life at Nora, Nebraska, December 27, 1924, aged 78 years, 7 months and 15 days.

When a lad he came with his parents from England to America. He grew to manhood in Wisconsin. Here he was united in marriage to Agnes Amelia Cherry November 24, 1870. To this union were added seven children, three girls and four boys: Minnie, William and Edwin Williams of Davenport, Nebr.; Clara Johnson of Nelson; Mary Lester of Beaver City; Clyde and Elmer of Nora. His wife died July 10, 1913.

He was again united in marriage to the sister of his first wife, Mrs. Sarah Burrus, October 9, 1915. He spent the remainder of his life at his home near and at Nora. He has been a faithful member for forty years of the Methodist church until his death. He is survived by his wife, two brothers, John William (sic) of Nelson; Tom Williams of Beaver City, who was unable to be present; fourteen grand children, and one great grand child.

The funeral was conducted from the Methodist church at Nora, Monday afternoon at two o'clock. His former pastor D.L. Davis of Cowles, assisted by the resident pastor, A.L. Kellogg, had charge of the service.
