Interim Report on Archibald Hood Author: John J. Hood Version Level: Original Version Date: July 20, 1999


Archibald Hood was a Scots-Irish immigrant who came to America around 1790 and who left many descendants in Greene County, Pennsylvania, and in Monongalia, Marion and Harrison Counties in West Virginia. This report has been written, first, to document what is known to date about Archibald Hood and what questions remain about him, and, secondly, to make suggestions for the direction of future research. In this report, there will be shorthand references made to published narratives on the Hood family. These resources are: * History of Monongalia County, by Samuel T. Wiley, Kingwood, 1883 * Biographical and Portrait Cyclopedia of Monongalia, Marion and Taylor Counties, published by Rush, West and Company, Philadelphia, 1895 (Although this is a "vanity" history book, Alfred Hood [1825-1899] of Marion County wrote, by far, one of the better histories of the Hood family) * The Smith Hood narrative, written by Smith Hood (1861-19??) using, "..his personal memory and facts gained from others, and from records in the Bibles of John Smith Hood and wife Maria Smythe Hood on Feb. 20th 1948" Birth of Archibald Hood To date, the only source that we have for the birth date of Archibald Hood comes from the 1830 Federal census of Greene County, PA. In that census record, Archibald Hood states that he is at least 60 years old but not yet 70 years old, which yields a birth year range of 1760 to 1770. Given that Archibald Hood's daughter, Eleanor, was born in 1786 (and the date appears to be a good one), it would make it seem that Archibald Hood was born closer to 1760 than to 1770 (that is to say, Archibald Hood was probably closer to being 26 years old rather than 16 years old when his daughter was born). Although there is some certainty of when Archibald Hood was born, the question of where he was born is not as clear. In his 1798 naturalization document, Archibald Hood is recorded as being a , "...native of Ireland...". "Native", in the strictest sense of the word, would imply "nativity", meaning one's place of birth. In a more liberal sense of the word "native", it could simply mean "prior residence". Unfortunately, we do not know (at this time) how strict the courts were in using the word "native". In the Federal census of 1880, respondents were asked to state where they were born and where their father and mother were born. It is not known if any of Archibald Hood's children lived long enough to be enumerated in the 1880 census, but research is underway to track down Archibald Hood's children through their lifetime and locate them (if possible) in the 1880 census. This may provide another clue in the search to discover the birthplace of Archibald Hood. The next reference that is found regarding the origins of Archibald Hood (and published decades after his death) is Wiley's history of Monongalia County, WV (1883). Wiley identifies him as "Archie Hood" and states that he, "...came from White Thorn, Scotland." The author has been unable to locate a town called "White Thorn" on any maps of Scotland, but he has found a town called "Whithorn" in Dumfriesshire, and it may be that the name "Whithorn" evolved into "White Thorn" as the story was re-told over time. The Biographical and Portrait Cyclopedia of Monongalia County (1895) is the next source that provides information regarding the origins of Archibald Hood. This work is a "vanity history" in which "subscribers" would pay to have a historical narrative of 500 words or less published about himself and his family. In this book, Alfred Hood (1825-1899), a grandson of Archibald Hood, wrote the lengthiest narrative regarding Archibald Hood found to date. In this piece, he states that Archibald Hood, "...came from Dumfries [Scotland]." Lastly, from the Smith Hood narrative (1948), it is stated that the "ancestral home" of the Hoods is "Dumfries or Dunfermline" and that it was from this city that Archibald Hood, "...with his wife and two brothers (names unknown) left about the year 1790 for America." In recent years, the Mormon Church has published a compact disc (for personal computers) of baptismal, marriage and burial records of the Church of Scotland. Querying this database for all baptismal records from 1760 to 1770 returned only one record for an Archibald Hood which occurred in the Tarbolton parish of Ayrshire in 1762. Since Ayrshire and Dumfriesshire share a common border, this appeared to be a "match". In an attempt to verify the identity of this Archibald Hood, the author has recently corresponded with Mr. John S. Hood of Kilmarnock who is very knowledgeable about the Hoods of Ayrshire. The Archibald Hood in the 1762 baptismal record married an Ann Connel in 1799, worked as a "coal grieve" (coal foreman) in Kilmarnock and died there in 1834. Thus, this 1762 baptismal record is not for our Archibald Hood. Early Years of Archibald Hood (in the Old World) According to the Smith Hood narrative, the Hoods of Scotland were, "...master weavers by trade." Most families living in Northern Ireland and the lowlands of Scotland in the latter half of the 18th century were engaged in farming, and many had added home-based, linen weaving as a business sideline. Hence, we have good reason to believe that Archibald Hood grew up on a farm in either Northern Ireland or the lowlands of Scotland and learned the weaving trade. He most likely also saw how the modest wealth that the Scots-Irish had made from weaving was confiscated by higher rents demanded by British landlords and higher taxes demanded by the British government. There can be little doubt that Archibald Hood received an education while he was young. When he applied for his American citizenship in 1798, he was required to sign his naturalization record in three different places. Each signature on this document is very neat and uniform, suggesting that he not only did he learn to read and write, but he also had ample opportunity (through his work perhaps?) to practice his penmanship. Most sources agree that Archibald Hood was married twice, yet none of the published sources (i.e., Wiley, Alfred and Smith Hood) ever gives the names of his wives. In the Seals family (Archibald's daughter, Nellie, married William Seals), there has been a tale handed down over the generations regarding Archibald Hood's first wife. Mary Elizabeth Turney Tukesbrey of Waynesburg, PA, prior to her death in 1995, stated that the first wife of Archibald Hood was Sarah Newcomer. This first marriage apparently occurred in the Old World, as there is a teapot (or coffee pot) that has been handed down through the Seals/Tukesbrey family, and it is said that this teapot was brought from Scotland by Sarah Newcomer Hood. xt reference that is found regarding the origins of Archibald Hood (and published decades after his death) is Wiley's history of Monongalia County, WV (1883). Wiley identifies him as "Archie Hood" and states that he, "...came from White Thorn, Scotland." The author has been unable to locate a town called "Whably made of nickel and/or pewter and not silver (as it has never needed polishing). Since pewter was not the prized material that silver was for that time period, this suggests that Archibald and Sarah Hood were common folk. One of Archibald Hood's first children was his daughter Eleanor. From the DAR application of Hildred Maye Tukesbrey McKenna, it states that Eleanor (also known as "Nellie" or "Ellie") was born in County Donegal, Ireland on April 24, 1786. Although this is an intriguing piece of information, there is (unfortunately) no reference as to the original source (e.g., family Bible record, death record, etc.). In the 1850 census of Marion Township, Greene County, PA, we find Eleanor Seals listed as being 68 years old (yielding a birth year of 1781-82) and her place of birth being Pennsylvania. Since neither source is infallible, it will require more research to determine the date and place of birth of Eleanor Hood. Another of Archibald's first children is said to be William Hood. The only source that mentions a William Hood is the Biographical & Portrait Cyclopedia (1895). In that work it claims that William Hood, "...was born in Scotland, where he remained;" There is no indication if he was older or younger than his sister, Nellie. If there is truth to this story, then why would Archibald and his wife have left a child in the Old World? He (William) may have been a sickly child and his chances of surviving a voyage across the Atlantic may have been questionable. Although it would be a tough decision, a loving parent would still prefer to have a child alive in the old world rather than to risk watching that child perish aboard a ship and be buried at sea. Dr. Hood has, thus far, been unable to find any trace of this William Hood or his descendants in Scotland. After the birth of these two children, it appears as though Archibald Hood, his wife and daughter Nellie sailed for the New World sometime between 1790 and 1793. Locating the name of the ship on which they sailed may be extremely difficult to discover (if not impossible) as passenger ships' lists were not kept by the nascent American government at that time, and the passenger ships' lists that were kept by the British government have long since been destroyed. Archibald Hood in the New World Once in America, it looks as if Archibald took advantage of the Land Act of 1792 (passed by the Pennsylvania Legislature) which opened up a great deal of land in western PA for sale. It would not have been without risk, though, as this was still the frontier and isolated Indian raids still posed a threat to settlers. Although the Revolutionary War had concluded ten years earlier, the Indians still clung to the dream (with support from British agents at Fort Dearborn) of driving the white settlers in this region back across the Allegheny mountains. The first recorded appearance of Archibald Hood in the new world is in the tax lists of 1793 for the East Bethlehem Township of Washington County, Pennsylvania. Presumably, he would have been clearing the land and living as a farmer. As we will see, this tax record will coincide with other sources that cite Archibald Hood as living in the area of Fredericktown in East Bethlehem Township of Washington County. The year of 1794 was most likely a tumultuous year for Archibald Hood and his family. In the summer of 1794, residents of western Pennsylvania banded together to violently oppose the excise tax that the Federal government had passed on whiskey. This is what became known as the "Whiskey Rebellion". It would be doubtful if Archibald Hood was an active participant in this rebellion since it would be patently unwise for a recently-arrived immigrant to engage in a rebellion against the general government of his new home. Although he most likely did not participate in the rebellion, he may have felt pressure to join from his neighbors as history records that the radicals who initiated the Whiskey Rebellion were not hesitant about coercing others into opposing the tax. Another seminal event in 1794 that would have affected Archibald Hood and his family was the victory of General "Mad Anthony" Wayne against the Indians at the Battle of Fallen Timbers near present-day Toledo, Ohio on August 4, 1794. This ended the threat of Indian raids into western Pennsylvania. After the Indian menace was eradicated in 1794, southwestern PA began to grow rapidly. Archibald must have been able to stay busy, selling saddles and harnesses to all the new settlers as the frontier gave way to civilization. Archibald Hood the Businessman With the frontier region now safe from Indian attack, more and more people began to settle in southwestern Pennsylvania. From 1790 to 1800, the population of southwestern PA grew by 85%. Archibald Hood appears to have been able to capitalize on this growth in population by starting a tannery and a shop for making saddles and harnesses. On November 28, 1796, Archibald Hood advertised in a local newspaper that he would be opening a tannery in Fredericktown. But there was more than just a tannery, as Smith Hood (1948) tells us that Archibald Hood conducted what was called a harness shop and was an expert saddler and harness maker. He taught his son, John, the trade beginning at the age of ten years (which would have been 1809). Father and son would work in the shop all winter and in the early spring travel throughout Greene and adjoining counties selling their saddles and harness Alfred Hood (1895) described Archibald Hood's business activities in more general terms. Of Archibald Hood he says: "He was an energetic and industrious man and followed peddling on a large scale, handling heavy lots of goods and doing a good business." One would have needed to have been industrious and energetic to engage in business that required travel at that time. Although western Pennsylvania was covered by a network of roads by the time of the War of 1812, most of them were bad and dangerous, providing inadequate avenues of travel and transportation. Records concerning Archibald Hood found in the U.S. Direct Tax for Pennsylvania of 1798 give us an idea of what the Hood homestead was like. Archibald Hood is listed as the occupant and the owner of a home in East Bethlehem Township of Washington County (as of October 1, 1798). The house where the Hoods lived was made of logs, measured 15 feet by 16 feet and was 1* stories tall. It had three windows in it and five "lights" (oil lamps?). A kitchen measuring 13 feet by 11 feet was connected to the house and had a separate entrance. The house also had a stable (dimensions unknown) that was connected to the house. Presumably, this stable also served as the tannery and shop. This home was situated on a lot measuring 21,000 square feet and, although the document does not say so, we may safely assume that this was a lot in Fredericktown. The Federal Direct Tax records also show that Archibald Hood owned a vacant lot in the town of Waynesburg in Greene County. No corresponding records have been located thus far in the Greene County courthouse regarding this lot. Archibald Hood the American Archibald appears to have been initially unconcerned with his citizenship status, as he could have applied for citizenship as early as 1795 under the 1790 citizenship statues which only required two years residency in the country. It wasn't until the harsh measures of President John Adams's Alien Act (of 1798) became law that Archibald sprung into action to get his citizenship (perhaps he was too busy and/or too content with his tannery business to apply for his citizenship earlier). The Alien Act of 1798 was enacted with tha recently-arrived immigrant to engage in a rebellion against the general government of his new home. Although he most likely did not participate in the rebellion, he may have felt pressure to join from his neighbors as history records that the radicals who initiated the Whiskey Rebellion were not hesitant abng Nisi Orins in Washington County, Pennsylvania. On May 15, 1798, Archibald Hood was granted his American citizenship from the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania using the residency criteria of the 1790 law. He was now safe from the threat of deportation. In the oath that Archibald Hood took to be a citizen, it stated that he renounced any and all claims that he may have had to any hereditary titles. Further proof that he was "common". Although he was common, this was not to say that he was without character. Isaac Jenkinson served as Archibald Hood's character witness in the naturalization proceedings, and Archibald Hood would have been hard pressed to have found a better man than Isaac Jenkinson. Isaac Jenkinson had built the first house in Fredericktown when it was founded in 1790, so he presumably knew Archibald Hood from the time that he first arrived in the area. More than that, Isaac Jenkinson was a qualified draftsman and surveyor, a former soldier in the Revolutionary War and had been named by Governor Mifflin to serve as one of five commissioners for Greene County when it was formed out of Washington County in 1796. He was a man held in high esteem by those in his community, and he informed the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania (under oath) that Archibald Hood, "...behaved as a man of good moral character, [is] attached to the Constitution of the United States, and [is] well disposed to the good order and happiness of the same." Archibald Hood in Later Years: His Moves are Mysterious Archibald Hood's 1798 naturalization record stated that he was a resident of Washington County, Pennsylvania. The 1798 Direct Tax for Pennsylvania lists him as being in East Bethlehem Township as of October 1, 1798. From this point onward, he becomes a difficult man to track. There is no Archibald Hood listed in the index for the 1800 census of Pennsylvania. An entry-by-entry search of the original 1800 census may have to be done to assure that the indexers did not make a mistake. In the "Hood" vertical file of the Cornerstone Genealogical Society, there is a letter written by Marjorie Hood Jones dated May 6, 1975. In this letter, she states that Archibald Hood is found on an 1801 tax list for the "Bethlehem" township (presumably, this was the East Bethlehem Township in Washington County). After this, Archibald Hood seems to disappear (confounding his descendants who search for him). Archibald Hood's eldest daughter, Eleanor, married William Seals on July 3, 1806. William Seals was born and raised in Greene County, but it is uncertain where Archibald Hood was living at that time. For the Federal census of Pennsylvania for 1810, Archibald Hood once again eludes the enumerator. His daughter, Eleanor Seals, and her young family are living in Franklin Township of Greene County, PA. There is also a family headed by a Margaret Hood in the Franklin Township as well. This record shows that this Margaret Hood was born between 1765 and 1784, and that there are two young females and one young male in the home. This looks like it could be the household of Archibald Hood. Alfred Hood (1895) named five children for Archibald Hood: Nellie (Eleanor), William, Anne, Isabelle and John. With William supposedly in Scotland and Nellie now married, this would leave two daughters and a son left at home (which is what we see in the census record). However, the problem with this record is that it shows no older male (Archibald) as living in this home. Did the enumerator make an error? Did Margaret (assuming she was Archibald's wife) get made at him and throw him out of the house for an indefinite period? What makes this record even more puzzling is that this Margaret Hood never shows up again in census records. More than that, the Greene County tax records for Franklin Township for the years 1809 through 1815 show no Hoods by any name living in Franklin Township. The first appearance of Archibald Hood in Greene County records is in the 1820 tax records for Franklin Township. Although he appears on the tax record, he again was missed by the enumerator and was not listed in the 1820 census for Greene County. His son, John, also appears in Greene County records for the first time, being on the tax lists for Jefferson Township. It appears that Archibald Hood may have handed his saddlery business over to his son as John is taxed on his occupation (as a saddler) and Archibald is never taxed for an occupation of any kind. In fact, he typically is taxed for only one horse and one cow (and some years he shows nothing). Archibald Hood appears once again in the 1821 tax list for Franklin Township. However, he cannot be found on a document entitled "Numeration of the Inhabitants of Greene County" which was filed at the courthouse in December 21, 1821. He then disappears in 1822. He appears in the 1823 tax list for Jefferson Township and then disappears again. He re-appears in the 1826 tax list for Center Township and is found on Center Township tax records until 1833. During this period, the enumerator working on the 1830 census found Archibald at home (in Center Township). After 1833, Archibald Hood disappears once again. According to Marjorie Hood Jones' letter (1975), Archibald Hood is found on the 1836 tax list for the Marion Township of Greene County. This is the last appearance of Archibald Hood found thus far. He is not found in the 1840 Federal census for Pennsylvania, neither is he found in the 1840 census records for Ohio or Virginia (these neighboring states were checked as a precaution). Given that he had so little personal property, there are no probate records to be found on Archibald Hood in Greene County. It can be surmised that he died between 1836 and 1840 in Greene County. A search of published cemetery records for both Washington and Greene Counties showed no gravestone for Archibald Hood. No search has yet been made for an obituary in the local newspaper. The Children of Archibald Hood Although it has been said that Archibald Hood was married twice, it is unknown when his first wife died and when he married his second wife. Hence, there is no way of knowing (at this time) who the mother of these children are. In addition to that , there is no definitive, unquestionable list of his children. Wiley (1883) only mentions Archibald's son John. Alfred Hood (1895) names his children as being William, Nellie, Isabella, Anne and John. Smith Hood (1948) names son John and two unnamed daughters. The following constitutes the "best guess" so far as to who Archibald Hood's children are. 1.) ELEANOR ("Nellie", "Ellie"): Birthdates and places vary for Eleanor. On the DAR record of Hildred Maye Tukesbrey McKenna, it states that Eleanor was born April 24, 1786 in County Donegal, Ireland. The 1850 census record for Eleanor indicates that she was born in 1781-82 in Pennsylvania. The census records from 1820 to 1840 suggest that she was born between 1784 and 1790. Eleanor married William Seals (1785-1846) on July 3, 1806 and apparently lived in Franklin Township for the rest of her life. Their known children are: James; Margaret (who married, first, Ephraim McClelland, and, second, William Baltzell); Eliza Ann (who married William Zimmerman); Eleanor (who married Henry Zimmerman); Sarah (who married Abraham Baltzell). Apparently, Eleanor Hood Seals died around 1859 or 1860. On December 18, 1860, the county court gave Abraham Baltzell permission to sell * of a lot in Waynesburg belonging to Eleanor Seals (deceased) at public auction to satisfy debts that she owed. 2.) WILLIAM: This is the son that was supposedly born in Scotland and remained there (mentioned earlier). 3.) ISaret Hood never shows up again in census records. More than that, the Greene County tax records for Franklin Township for the years 1809 through 1815 show no Hoods by any name living in Franklin Township. The first appearance of Archibald Hood in Greene County records is in the 1820 tax records for Franklir daughter, Ann, as she is listed in the household of Joseph and Ann Wiley (Ann is 31 years old) in Marion Township, Waynesburgh Borough of Greene County in the 1850 census. To date, nothing has been found on Isabella past 1850. 4.) ANNE: Born about 1797 presumably in Fredericktown. She married Jesse Dollison about 1820. They began raising their family in Greene County, but later moved to Wood County, West Virginia in 1849 and changed their name from Dollison to Dallison. Apparently, their older children remained in Greene County and their younger children accompanied them to West Virginia where they were enumerated in the 1850 census for Wood County. They cannot be found in the 1860 census of Virginia, but a James Dallison appears in Wood County in 1870 and an Alex Dallison appears in Marshall County in 1870. Known children of Jesse and Anne Dollison/Dallison are: Margaret, James, Isabel, Rebecca and Amos. 5.) JOHN: Born in 1799 in Fredericktown. He married Letitia Smith about 1820. They began raising their family in Jefferson, Greene County. In or about 1832, John Hood and family moved to West Virginia. He died at Lowesville, West Virginia on March 21, 1843. John and Letitia's children were: John Smith, William, Maria, Alfred, James, Margaret, Caroline, Letitia, Mary Ellen and Joseph A.. The children of John and Letitia Hood raised their families in the upper Monongahela Valley of West Virginia from Morgantown to Clarksburg. 6.) OTHERS?: Smith Hood (1948) states that Archibald Hood had two daughters, but he did not know their names. He did state that one daughter married an Adamson and the other married a Bell. In the 1830 census record of the Archibald Hood household in Greene County, there is a female listed as being at 30 to 39 years old, and another female five to nine years old. These may be the daughters to which Smith Hood made reference, but there is no way to tell at this time. John J. Hood, PO Box 248, McDonald, TN 37353 e-mail:

[NI1482] Article found in Vermillion County, Indiana:

ALEXANDER MOREHEAD, came to Vermillion County from Ohio in 1819. He was the first settler in Vermillion Township. He staked out the land he wanted, had it surveyed, and built a log cabin north of what would later be the location of Newport. Travel in that area in those days was by flatboat since it was too much of a wilderness for travel by land. So, in 1822, when Alexander felt that the homestead was ready for his family, he returned to Ohio by flatboat and brought his family back with him. In the same year he entered his land in Sections 23 and 25 on the First Land Owners' Map.
Alexander was an active figure in the organization of the county and served at one time (1833) as Associate Judge which was an office in the early days.
His son Samuel left the homeplace and is shown on the 1872 map in the Map Section as owning a quarter section in Section 28, just southwest of the covered bridge. Until 1885 when the covered bridge was built there was a ford there called the Morehead Ford and the bridge was known as the Morehead Bridge. There probably was a house there at one time but there is no indication now. When Samual dided in 1896 he was living in Danville, IL.
Alexander's son Joseph's home was well-known as it was torn down only a few years ago and the chimney is still there. It was about a half mile north of the Main Street bridge on old State Road 63 and across the road from Alexander's original log cabin. The owner at that time was the Dwiggins family, grandchildren of Margaret Morehead Harshaw.
Besides the marriages shown in the family diagram, there is one of Margaret Morehead to Nathaniel Washburn in 1831 that seems very likely to belong somewhere in this family although nothing is known in this regard. However, they are both buried in the Johnson Cemetery northeast of Newport where most of the Moreheads are buried and which originally was Morehead land.

Circleville Herald, Pickaway County, Ohio Oct 13, 1915 reads:

Wednesday Afternoon, Dying Two Hours Apart--Mrs. Eccard By Carbolic Acid, He By Aconite--Were In The City Earlier In Day and Both Seemed In Usual Spirits.

Two deaths in one family within two hours, Wednesday afternoon, caused by poison, leaves the impression that Gideon Eccard and his wife were parties to a suicide pact.

Mrs. Eccard was taken suddenly and alarmingly sick about 4 o'clock and went into convulsions; Dr. Heffner was telephone and when he arrived at the Eccard home, on the farm of Mrs. Rebecca Hulse Halstead in Jackson township, Mrs. Eccard was dead and Mr. Eccard was unconscious from an overdose of aconite, self-administered, dying three hours thereafter.

Mr. and Mrs. Eccard took the fatal draughts in the barn where she had gone to assist him with the chores, an empty three ounce bottle that contained aconite was found by Coroner Dunton, near the body. Realizing that his wife was dying, Mr. Eccard, it is reported, took about the same amount of aconite from a bottle used for horse medicine, and called loudly for help.

The sad circumstance has cast a gloom over the entire neighborhood in which Mr. and Mrs. Eccard resided, as they were universally esteemed and respected by all who knew them.

Mary Alice Drake was a daughter of Jesse and Elizabeth (Valentine) Drake and she was born in Stoutsville, March 18th, 1859, she was united in marriage to Gideon E. Eccard in 1878. They are survived by the following children: John, Charles, Turney, Albert and Walter Eccard, Mrs. George Eitel, Mrs. Mae Brown of Jackson township, and Mrs. george H. Groves of Ashville.

Mrs. Eccard is survived by the following sisters and brothers: Mrs. Martha Young, this city; Mrs. Isaac Hatter, Darbyville; Mrs. Amos Stout, Stoutsville; William Drake, Washington township; Robert and John Drake, of this city; Arch Drake, Stoutsville; and Harley Drake of Springfield, O.

Mr. Eccard was a native of Maryland. He followed farming as an occupation and lived on some of the best farms in the county.

Some years since, Mr. Eccard was badly crippled by a horse which knocked him down in the stable and fractured one of his arms in such a manner that he was permanently crippled, and suffered a great deal of pain from the injury, and it is thought that he contracted the opium habit, as he had purchased on several occasions in recent months, laudanum in large quantities, ostensibly for horses injured in barbed wire fences.

Earlier in the day, Mr. and Mrs. Eccard were in the city and seemed in those who met them, to be in their usual good spirits and what caused them to commit the rash act, is beyond the ken of human knowledge.

Mr. Eccard was in his 65th and Mrs. Eccard in her 57th year. They had always been lovers, and came to the city or went to other points together. Since he was crippled, she always assisted him with his chores.

Mr. Eccard was a lover of good horses and he was always the owner of a bunch of good ones, in fact, much better than the average renter; in his early days he was a teamster back in Maryland and when he came to this state he brought horses with him that were the envy of every one who saw them. Some several years since he refused an offer of $800 for a team of beauties that he raised, saying: "It would be like parting with a couple of members of the family." In addition to raising good stock he was one of the best conditioners in the county.

Those nearest and dearest to them are at loss to know the reason for their rash acts.

The double funeral which will be private, arrangements in charge of W. H. Albaugh, will occur from their late residence, Saturday morning at 10 o'clock, Rev. Elliott of the United Brethren Church, officiating, burial in Forest Cemetery.

THIS PER THOMAS BUZARD, II: Gideon & Mary Alice commited suicide together because (the family believes) they were going to lose everything they had. Gideon's father came over from (Munich?) Germany and landed in Baltimore, MD. We believe Gideon was of the Lutheran faith. Gideon & Mary are buried in Forest Cemetery Circleville, OH. The inventory of their will is in Inv. Vol. #42 p. 256.

There is an Alice Marguerite Eccard (born abt 1905, Franklin County), daughter of Charles Eugene Eccard and Josephine Donaldson, who married a Thomas E. Morris (born abt 1905, Franklin County), son of Thomas R. Morris and Mary N. Morris, on March 14, this any relation to our Eccards?

[NI4672] Mary was buried in Forest Cemetery 16 Oct 1915.

[NI4673] Stoutsville News:

JESSE DRAKE was born near McArthur, Vinton Co., O. Dec 25, 1834 and died at his home in Stoutsville Oct. 14, 1902, aged 67 years, 9 months and 19 days. He was married Nov. 6, 1853 to Miss Elizabeth Valentine and to this union were born 6 sons and 5 daughters, all of whom are living, cepting one son who died in infancy.

Mr. Drake moved from the place of his nativity, when a boy, and spent the greater part of his life in Pickaway Co. In the year 1887, he moved to Stoutsville, in company with his wife, who died 8 years ago.

He was converted to God and joined the U.B. Church in the year 1854, and subsequently he united with the Evangelical Church of which he was a member until he was called from labor to reward.

He enlisted as a soldier in the Civil War in 1861, and was a member of Co. E, 43rd Ohio Infantry. He was borne to the grave by six of his old soldier comrades.

His sickness lasted only a few days. His sufferings were intense and all that could be done failed to save his life.

He was a good citizen, a kind father and neighbor and will be missed by all who knew him.

He leaves 5 sons and 5 daughters, also 5 brothers and 3 sisters, and many other relatives who mourn his departure.

The funeral was held in the Ev. church, at Stoutsville Thursday, Rev. W. D. Huddle officiating. Interment at Pontius church beside his wife. "Hushed is the voice we loved so well, Silence reigns instead, How deep the grief we cannot tell Since our dear father is dead.

[NI5010] Yost came to Philadelphia September 29, 1753 on the ship "ROWAN" with his brother Christian. Yost was a non-enroller who was fined by the Committee of Observation in April 1776. Yost's first wife, Elizabeth Ochs, hung herself in 1781.

[NI5020] Robert's wife, Mary, took her inheritance of her father's land (WR11/495) by deed dated April 26, 1793, and it stated that "...Mary Fuller wife to a certain Robert Fuller...". Thus it appears Robert was alive at the time of this deed. Later, when Mary deeded the land to daughter, Margaret, in 1805, Robert is noted as deceased. Robert was sworn in a grand jury in March 1796 and August 1798. The administration of the estate of Robert Fuller was granted to Mary, his widow, September 15, 1800. Scharf's History, page 1530 mentions a Henry Fuller who was born in Frederick County, Maryland in 1800 but was raised to mainhood in Martinsburg, Virginia.

[NI5021] Mary Johnson Fuller received her inheritance of 110 acres on 26 Apr 1793 (WR11/495) and sold it to Henry Staley 27 Apr 1793 (WR11/500). Mary Johnson Fuller deeded her land in Frederick County, MD (original patent to Thomas Johnson in 1784 of 308 A and divided, Resurvey on part of the Resurvey on Stoney Level This parcel of land was left by Thomas Johnson to all his children in his Will of 1778) and Hampshire Co., VA (198 A. known as Hoglin's Survey at Rawlick Gap, the property of Robert Fuller) to her daughter, Margaret Fuller Blickenstaff. The deed is dated 1 Sept 1805 and
recorded 15 Oct 1805. Robert Fuller is noted as deceased in the Deed. WR28/1 The Deed was delivered to Yost Blickenstaff 9 May 1808. NIS has Mary and her son, Francis, incorrectly listed as being buried in
the Main cemetery. They are both buried at the Hawbottom Johnson Family Cemetery a few miles further away.

[NI5028] In 1741, for some unknown reason, Thomas Johnson, came to the little settlement that was afterwards laid out for Fredericktown, in search of land on which to settle and make a home, but finding the land around the little settlement, low, swampy, and covered with alder bushes, he did not think it was healthy. During his stay he met an Indian chief, who when he learned of his mission told him to go with him and he would show him the place to settle, which should always be, beside running water. To the foot of our beautiful High Knob they journeyed, and at its base on the land now owned
by Mr. Thomas Wiles, he cast his lot, nowhere is there to be found a finer spring, and it is the source of Middletown's water supply. On the twenty day of Oct., 1741, Thomas JOHNSON, of Prince Georges Co. was granted a patent for 50 acres of vacant land, called "JOHNSON's Delight", it was a part of the Manor of Care go chrge???) and the rental was to be two shillings. Again family tradition says that his name was Johnstone, but he did not discover until after his return from Annapolis that ???? had been ???, not thinking it worth another long trip to the capital, it was allowed to remain. The 1st March, 1748, he was granted another patent for 255 acres of vacant land, called "JOHNSON's Level"_ on the 14th Dec., 1765 "JOHNSON's Lane Enlarged" for 724 acres-part of "JOHNSON's Retirement" on the 23rd April 1762-for 42 acres, part of the resurvey in "Stoney Level", 25th__ 1768 for 366 acres-"Long Ridge" on the 23 April 1762 for 28 acres. "Stoney Hill" on 10th Oct 1767 for 25 acres. Part of "Full Bottle" on the 27th of Nov 1769 granted George Main for 75 acres "A Stopper for the Full Bottle" on the 16th May 1801, granted Jacob Burhan for 9 acres. Two part of his parcels of Mantzylvania in the 7th Feb 1785 granted to Peter Mantz for 5-7 acres, were all added to the original tract, until the 2nd June 1819, his son Robert JOHNSON was granted a special warrant for a resurvey of the whole tract, which contained nearly 2,000 acres. Their life at the foot of the silent peak, was not always peaceful, for during the days of the Indian outbreaks in 1755, they were forced to abandon their home. They dug long trenches and buried their cooking utensils, wash tubs, and everything possible, and fled to York, PA where they remained for more than a year. The silver knee and shoe buckles, as well as the silver bullins used to pin the hats into cockades, now in the possession of the Misses Mary and Annie Dutrow, all prove that they were gentlemen.12 Thomas Johnson Sr. received his first land patent, "Johnson's Delight" 28 Apr 1742 for 50 acres. In 1750 he had it included in a resurvey called "Johnson's Lane (Land) Between. This was the land given to his daughter, Mary Johnson, Fuller, in his Will of 1778. "Johnson's Level" was surveyed
in 1748 and this is the land he willed to his son, John. Joseph received a tract that had been surveyed in 1755. In his will he provided for 50 pds, to his granddaughter, Elizabeth. This may be the daughter of Thomas Jr. (Source Tracey notes and collection and Pioneers of the Old Monocacy) At Thomas Johnson request, an acknowledgment was made. 28 September 1768, that the report spread in the neighborhood about Mr. Thos Johnson concerning his daughter Mary and Abraham LeMaster was and is false, and that I am sony for what shame given under my hand 27 September 1768, William McKoy by his mark before Thos Price.13 This record can be found at the Frederick County Court House at L/511.

[NI5029] Buried in Hawbottom Johnson Cemetery, Frederick County, MD.11,3 It was noted in the Maryland Gazette that a Benjamin Rogers, his wife, 7 children and Edmund Marle, all of Frederick County, were killled or carried off by a party of Indians Wed. Oct 1 1755. It has not been ascertained that he is any relation to Mary Rogers, wife of Thomas Johnson.. But, an unpublished manuscript by Ida Markey tells of a story of the Johnson's burying their valuables and fleeing to York, PA in 1755 for a year because of the Indians.

[NI5036] Henry died bef 1800 in the crossing at sea. He lived on the border land between England and Scotland and married Janet Somerville, the daughter of a duke, and she was a King's Ward, and as such, could only marry with and by the Royal consent, to do otherwise was a felony, the penalty of which I do not know, so they were clandestinely married and came to America. It was said that one of her many possessions was a herd of hundred white cattle. We do know for a fact that Henry JOHNSON and his wife, Janet, left England and came to America. Tradition says that he died on the passage over and was buried at sea. He left one son, Thomas JOHNSON, who married Mary Rogers of Baltimore Co., that being his home. Henry was purported to have owned the boat that carried he and Janet. Henry died at sea.

[NI5038] There are two Maul sisters in Ross County...Lena and Mamie. Were they Minnie's sisters? I have added them, but will continue searching in this direction.

Info from Cindy Sterling states: "The 1820 census lists a John Diltz living in Muskingum County Ohio -- the children all fit into the age categories listed. Also, on page 807 of "Past and Present of Muskingum County History" by Sutor is a biography of Henry Jenkins. "His mother's maiden name was Elizabeth Dilts, born in New Jersey, the daughter of John Dilts, a pioneer resident of this county."
Second, I have a copy of a Power of Attorney drawn up in Muskingum County Ohio (Aug. 1820) and filed in Hunterdon County of New Jersey (Sept. 1, 1820) in which Wiliam, Morris, Elizabeth Dils and Catherine (Dils) Collins and Arletta (Dils) Owens grant to "their father" John Dils the power of attorney in regards to a legacy left to them in the will of a William Houser of Hunterdon Co., New Jersey.
Therefore, I believe Morris Dilts (Sr.)'s father is a John Dilts(Dils) but I do not have further information on him."
