"The first names found in connection with the settlement of Woodstock are Jacob Miller and his son-in-law, Abraham Brubaker. This settlement was first names Millerstadt after Mr. Miller, and Mr. Brubaker gave the double lot of one acre [Need copy of this deed to obtain date] to Burr Harrison, Taverner Beale, Joseph Pugh, Abraham Keller, Laurence Snapp, George Keller, John Tipton, Jacob Holtzman, Henry Nelso, Frederick Stover, Philip Hoffman and Henry Fravel, "for the use and purpose of building and supporting a church for public worship, a church yard and place of burial for the dead, and such other buildings as may be necessary for the purposes aforesaid." Seven of the names of this deed are the names of Germans representing the Lutheran Church.....The earliest names have been lost, as it is certain that the history of the congregation extends into the past to the time of the visitation of the Hebron pastors from 1748 [Were there records of these traveling pastors?] to the coming of the first regular pastor in the person of Peter Muhlenberg in the summer of fall of 1772.....All the years while these ministers were serving east of the Blue Ridge, the beautiful Shenandoah Valley had no resident pastor for the many people of the Lutheran faith until 1772.

6 "John Coggeshall, progenitor of the family in America, and first president of the colony of Rhode Island, was a member of an ancient and honorable English family, whose lineage has been traced to the early part of the twelfth century, to one Thomas de Cogeshall, the owner of vast estates in Essex and Suffolk, England, in 1135-54. He married, in England, Mary, born in 1604, died November 8, 1684, at the age of eighty. He emigrated from England to the New World in the ship "Lyon", arriving at the port of Boston, MA, in 1632, with his wife Mary, and three children, John, Joshua, and Anne, on Sept. 16, 1632. He was admitted freeman of Roxbury, Nov. 6, 1632, and two years later, in 1634, removed to Boston, where he became a merchant. He was elected President of the Colony of Rhode Island in 1647. While in this office, he was the founder or was largely influential in founding two cities, two states and two separate and independent governments."

On Friday of week before last, the family of D. B. Sebold, living near Mt. Airy, ate some mushrooms for supper. About ten o'clock all were taken sick, but no serious results followed until last Monday morning when the youngest child, George, a bright boy of about ten years of age, died suddenly from the effects of the poison... 
Sebold, George (I42065)
8 "Local Department
On the afternoon of the 27th ult., Mrs. D. B. Sebold and her daughter Ella, of West Amwell township, were returning to their home from a visit to Lambertville, driving a horse to a buggy that they had safely driven on several former occasions. While crossing a small bridge about one-fourth of mile from their home, the horse turned to one side and the wagon went off one end of the bridge about two feet down, when the horse became frightened and started to run. In descending a hill, the buggy was upset and the ladies were pitched violently forward. Mrs. Sebold, it is thought, landed on her head; her neck was dislocated. She was carried into a house near by, and died within five minutes time. The daughter was quite severely injured, though no serious results are expected. The first intimation the family had that something had happened, was the arrival of the horse at home without the wagon. Mrs. Sebold's age was 53 years. She was a daughter of the late Thomas Cherry, of this place, and a sister to Mrs. George T. Gray, also of this town."

9 "Sprague Families in America", by Dr. Warren Vincent Sprague, page 45. Thomas Sprague, after serving in the Revolutionary War, moved to Massachusetts and later to Ballstown, NY. In 1802, he removed to what is now Hannibal, NY, and became the owner of 640 acres of bounty land in the military tract. Here he had no near neighbors until 1805, when a number of pioneers from the Eastern states settled at Hannibal Centre. He and his wife died on the same day and were buried in one grave. Sprague, Thomas Sr (I13382)
10 "Two Samuel and Hannah Hutchinses of Massachusetts and Maine", by David Kendall Martin in TAG, Vol 73 [July 1998], pp. 172-175:

"During the early eighteenth century, there were two contemporary Samuel Hutchinses, one in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts, and the other in Kittery, York County, Maine, who each married a woman named Hannah. The possibility of confusing them has apparently not been recognized by family historians, with the result that the wife of one is sometimes assigned, without comment, as wife of the other-- even by the same author. For example, inDescendants of John Hutchins of Newbury and Haverhill, Massachusetts, compiled by Edwin Colby Byam and edited by Jack Randolph Hutchins, we find that Samuel3 Hutchins (1682-1778), son of Joseph2 Hutchins (John1) and Joanna (Corliss) of Haverhill, married in Newbury, Massachusetts on 4 January 1715/6, Hannah Merrill, daughter of John and Lucy (Webster) Merrill. In 1976 Jack Randolph Hutchins published The Story of Jacob Hutchins of Athol, Massachusetts, Revolutionary Soldier, wherein he placed on a chart of the descendants of Enoch1 Hutchins and Mary (Stevenson) of Kittery, their son Samuel2 Hutchins (ca. 1685-1742) as husband of Hannah Merrill. In Hugh Hutchins of Old England, Jack Randolph Hutchins repeated his identification of the wife of Samuel Hutchins, son of Enoch, as Hannah Merrill; and in Robert Hutchins of Colonial America, he gave the same identification on page 334, while on pages 408 and 410 he noted Samuel Hutchins, the son of Joseph and Johannah (Corliss) Hutchins, as husband of Hannah Merrill.

The answer lies in the arrangement of entries for the vital records entered in the transcribed "Haverhill Town Meeting Records 1643-1724, 2 & 3", when compared with the wills of each of the two Samuel Hutchinses.

One Samuel Hutchins was born in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts, on 20 August 1682, a son of Joseph and Joanna (Corliss) Hutchins, "Mr. Samuel Hutchins of Norwich, formerly of Haverhill in Massachusetts Bay", died at Norwich, New London County, Connecticut, on 15 May 1778, aged 96 years, 9 months and two days, leaving a will dated 23 May 1774 and proved on 2 June 1778, in which he mentions his children Hannah, Samuel, Abigail Fales, and Nathan. No wife is mentioned in the will. The vital records of Haverhill show as children of Samuel Hutchins and Hannah "Marrill": Samuel born on 17 September 1716, Hannah born on 1 May 1717 [sic: 1718?], Nathan born on 1 April 1722, and Abigail born on 1 June 1724. The death of Hannah, wife of Samuel Hutchins on 9 June 1744 is also recorded.

Meanwhile, about 25 miles northeast of Haverhill, the parish records of the First Church and Society of Kittery, Maine, note that in 1714 another Samuel Hutchins was one of the eighteen subscribers to the church's covenant. This Samuel was the son of Enoch Hutchins of Kittery. Enoch had married on 5 April 1664, Mary Stevenson.

Although the year of this Samuel's birth is usually given as about 1685, he must have been born earlier, say about 1677, since he was given a land grant in Kittery in 1699. He and his brother Benjamin were the original administrators of the estate of their Brother Enoch Hutchins Jr., who died in Kittery on 2 April 1706. They were replaced by Enoch's widow on 13 January 1706/7, after her return from captivity in Canada, where she had been taken on 4 May 1705.

The Kittery First Church and Society parish records note on 26 April 1719 the baptism of infants: Sarah Hutchins, Caleb Hutchins, Samuel Hutchins, Hannah Hutchins and Simeon Hutchins. No parents are named, however, the will cited below makes clear these are the children of Samuel Hutchins of Kittery. Given the normal two year interval between single births, this would indicate a marriage date of say 1710.

During the 1720s, this Samuel lived briefly in Essex County, Massachusetts. In 1724 Samuel sold his dwelling in Kittery. On 4 March 1723/4, John Webster Jr., of Salisbury, Essex County, Massachusetts, weaver for £363 sold to Mr. Samuel Hutchins of Kittery, yeoman, the farm in Salisbury "I now live on". On 11 May 1727, Samuel Hutchins of Salisbury, yeoman, for £400 sold this land to Mr. Edward Brown of "Reding". The same day Hannah Hutchins surrendered her dower rights, and both acknowledged the deed. By 30 June 1729, Samuel had settled in Arundel, Maine, where Samuel [his X mark] Hutchins, husbandman, of Arundel, York County, wrote his will on 20 October 1742, naming his wife Hannah and nine children. He died before 28 December 1742, the date his will was probated. His widow hannah died on 9 June 1747. Samuel and Hannah had ten children: the five whose baptisms are given above, and apparently born after 1719: Mary, Lydia, Joseph, Levi, and David, each named in his will, which also names children Simeon, Caleb, Samue, and Hannah. [no Sarah]

Newbury, Massachusetts, vital records note the marriage of Samuel Hutchins to Hannah Merrill, both of Haverhill, on 4 January 1715/6. As we have seen, this marriage has been attributed to both Samuel and Hannah of Haverhill and Samuel and Hannah of Kittery, Salisbury, and Arundel.

When the wills of these two Samuels are compared with the family record of Samuel Hutchins and Hannah "Marrill" preserved in the Haverhill Town Records, it is clear that the Samuel Hutchins who married Hannah Merrill was the son of Joseph and Johannah (Corliss) Hutchins of Haverhill.

Hannah merrill's family is revealed by Essex County. Massachusetts, deeds where it is recorded that on 26 July 1720 Lucy Merrill, widow of John Merrill late of Haverhill, who had been appointed administrator of his estate on 11 November 1707, deeded to "my son-in-law Samuel Hutchins & my son Nathaniel Merrill", both of Haverhill, 25 acres in haverhill, bounded west by Joseph Hutchins, "my father[-in-law] Nathaniel Merrill late of Newbury did give to my children.

The identity of Hannah, wife of Samuel2 Hutchins (Enoch1) of Kittery remains unknown."

William Hammack died 7 Jul 1730 in North Farnham Ph., Richm ond Co., VA

Called "the Elder" since his father had two sons named Will iam. When William Hammack acquired a title in 1656, it evid ently was to clear title to the land on which his father ha d settled some 21 years before, and William thus became th e "first settler" in Yeocomico Forest.

appeared in America during the period 16-1700,

District G -- This area included: The town of Amity, Leath erville, Lloyds Creek, Dozier Creek, Gray's Creek in the so uthwest corner of what is now Lincoln County.

District GG -- This area is now in the eastern part of Gree ne County near the border with what remains to be Wilkes Co unty.

District H -- This area included: Uptons Creek and Keemp s Creek in what is now the southeast corner of Wilkes Count y. "The tax returns for this district for 1790 have not b een found, ...." except for seven defaulters. "Except fo r these few defaulters, all persons included in this censu s as residents of this district are noted as being in 178 7 or 1791 or both."

Note A - The tax returns for the district in which this tax payer probably resided in 1790 are missing, so there is n o tax record to show that he actually was a resident. Howe ver, the taxpayer is recorded for both the indicated distri ct or the 1787 district from which the indicated district w as made, and for the indicated district in 1791 or a distri ct made therefrom. Therefore, there is an almost certain p robability the taxpayer did reside in the indicated
district in 1790.

Note C - The tax returns for the district in which this tax payer probably resided in 1790 are missing, so there is n o tax record to show that he actually was there. However , this taxpayer is recorded for 1791 in the indicated
district or a district made therefrom. Therefore, there i s a very good probability the taxpayer did reside in the in dicated district in 1790.

* See note C above for WIlliam BENTLEY Jr. This land was lo cated on Upton's Creek and Keemps Creek in what continues t o be (Southeastern) Wilkes County, Georgia today. Upton' s Creek is where Upton Creek Baptist Church was constitute d in 1784, with Peter SMITH as Pastor (Charter Member of th e Georgia Baptist Association. He was also a co-executor o f William BENTLEY Sr's will dated 26th of Feb. 1791) John B ENTLEY was a Deacon of this church in 1785 along with Bened ict HAMMOCK. Gideon ANSERSON donated a total of 2 acres fo r the meetinghouse to the Deacons of the church; John BENTL EY and Benedict HAMMOCK. In 1791, John HOLMES, husband o f Chloe BENTLEY, daughter of William BENTLEY Sr., was ordai ned a Minister. William GREEN was ordained a Minister her e in 1791 as well. This Church was finally moved to Lincol n County, Georgia (in the southwestern corner of the count y almost touching the county line with Wilkes County) in 18 12 and the name was changed to Greenwood Baptist Church.

"Early Settlers of the name Hammock in the Wilkes County (G eorgia) Land Grants were probably the sons of Robert and An n Hammock of Farnham Parish (Richmond County) register.

John, born 1730; Hugh, born 1732; Robert, born 1737, and Be nedict 1740, all were suitable pioneering age. Only one, J ohn Hammock, lived beyond his "three score and ten."

The conclusion the Benedict Hammock was one of the group o f brothers is logical, but he was possibly the son of Bened ict, Sr., of Amelia County deeds. He was certainly closel y related, if not a brother. John, Hugh, Benedict, Robert , and William Hammock were all early settlers of Wilkes Cou nty, Georgia."

Peter SMIT H, Mark SANDERS, Testators. (Volume 1, page 236.)

*GREENWOOD CHURCH was first established, 1784, in East Wilk es County under the name of "Upton Creek Church, " and is s upposed to have been an arm of old Keokee, first Baptist ch urch in Georgia. After a few years it was moved further ea st, though still in Wilkes County, and its name changed t o "Greenwood". This was about 1791. In 1820 it was moved a gain to its present location just over in Lincoln County . Old records do not give names of any of the old heads ex cept the pastors.

"If you remember, Upton Creek, the first name of Greenwoo d church, has more real historic connections than any plac e in Georgia. It was on this creek that the first water po wer, or any kind of power, was started in 1790. In 1791 El i WHITNEY bought the old mill dam and wheel, built his sho p and invented the cotten gin (this in not the spot where h e invented the cotten gin, but he did use this place to hel p perfect it) and ginned the first bale of cotten in the Un ited States.

"In 1810, the first cotton factory south of Massachusetts w as built there and the old rock pile is still there, wher e the old house fell down. On this creek the rich Jew, Abr am SIMONS, whose money founded Mercer University, lived. H is widow married Jesse MERCER." -- Letter of J. Luke Burdet t, Washington, Georgia, March 22, 1935.

Hammock, John Sr (I6059)
13 Smith, Sarah Ann (I12889)
14 (Louis the Fat), 1081-1137, king of France (1108-37). He succeeded his father, Philip I, with whom he was associated in government from c.1100.

He firmly established his authority within the royal domain, suppressing brigandage by robber barons and besieging their castles, and punishing wrongdoers. He continued his father's policy of opposing the English in Normandy and was almost continuously at war with King Henry I (1109-13, 1116-20, 1123-35); he often met with defeat, but his resistance checked a greater English advance.

In 1124 he called up forces from far-flung regions of France; with strong support from the nobles he resisted the invasion of Holy Roman Emperor Henry V, who had come to the aid of Henry I. As a part of his plan for strengthening royal authority, Louis favored the church, liberally endowing its enterprises and selecting churchmen-notably the Abbâe Suger -as his ministers; he was vigorous, however, in enforcing his privilege of interference in ecclesiastical affairs.

To gain support from the towns, he began to grant them royal charters. He obtained a foothold in Guienne (Aquitaine) by marrying his son Louis (his successor as Louis VII) to the heiress of the duchy, Eleanor of Aquitaine . His enforcement of order and justice made Louis popular with the middle classes, the peasantry, and the clergy. Suger's Vie de Louis VI Le Gros (tr. 1964) is the standard monography for the history of Louis's reign.

From court records Perry bought 125 acres on Ash Camp Creek, in 1800, plus other lands; sold in the years 1805, 1811, and 1813, a total of 392 acres on Ash Camp Creek in Stokes County, North Carolina.

Dear Cousin:

Through the request of Father I take my pen to inform you that we are all well hoping that these few lines may find you with the balance of the connescion enjoying the same. Father received your letter the 10th of this month which gave us considerable satisfaction to hear that you were well.

Well Cousin John, Father wants you to sell them oats for what you can get and find some person to make up that fence, have the timber taken care of and none made use of only to keep up the plantation. You wanted to know what was the least he would take for the land. You can sell it for three hundred dollars cash in hand in United States paper of specie. If you can get no more if you can get to sell it, bind the bargain and Father will come and make the deed as the wright is in him. Know Jane has been to Illinois and Indiana and Ohio and got all the facts of the land. She and Father has come to a settlement and Father has a general warrant tee deed. If you should sell, have them bound so they cannot fly when Father comes and if you cannot sell you must rent it out to the best advantage. Father wants you to find out if anything could be got out of Stultz for the rent of that land that he has received or not or whether his property is not in such a situation that it cannot be taken.

Well Proctor you said something about my not writing to you I have nothing of importance to write. I have had a very bad cold for the last week attended with a severe cough. I am not as heavy by twenty pounds as I was when I was there. As for the girls I have nothing to do with them more than to watch their actions they cut some high swills. Sometime tell Cousin Elizabeth thar shop is not here for it I have the best Claim to it. Tell Nancy, Lucinda, Allen, Fountain and William that I want to hear from them all every chance. Well, Cousin John and Proctor there has been some weddings in this settlement. Miss Sally Ganers was married a week or two ago to a Mr. Glades of Limestone County and she is gone in welcome. I say Mr. Gibson and Miss Sarah Erwin is also marrya. Nothing more give respects to all connescion.

PLEASANT HALBERT'S birth occurred in Williamson County, Tenn., in 1811. His parents, James and Elizabeth (Smith) Halbert, were born in North and South Carolina in 1771 and 1788, and died in 1833 and 1813, respectively. The father was a farmer, and in 1795 immigrated to Tennessee, but remained only four years, when he returned to his native State. September 9, 1801, he returned to Tennessee. He was married in 1810, and in 1813 came to Lincoln County, where he spent the remainder of his days. He was father of two children, only one now living--Pleasant Halbert_who made his home with his father as long as he lived. He was educated in the district schools, and October 8, 1833, married Nancy Crawford, who was born in 1810, and a daughter of John Crawford, who was an early pioneer of Lincoln County. Our subject and his wife became the parents of eight children, seven of whom are living: Martha (wife of Dr. J. E. Youell), Margaret E. (Mrs. Lemuel D. Sugg), James C., Mary J. (Mrs. Captain J. H. George), Pleasant W. (a physician and surgeon), Naomi E. (Mrs. S. M. Clayton) and William H. (a physician and surgeon of Lebanon).

33 1880 Miami County Biography
LEVI HOUSER, farmer and stock-raiser - P.O. Piqua; was born in this county May 20, 1823, and is a son of John Houser, now deceased. Levi was raised on the farm and received a common-school education. At 26 years of age, he had accumulated nearly $6 00, which he invested in his present farm of 80 acres, in Sec. 23, Spring Creek Township; this farm has transformed from a wild state to a good degree of improvement, and is now in easy circumstances; for the past few years, his time has been directed to handling stock, which he has made a success. His marriage with Christena Whitney was celebrated March 29, 1849; she was born in Warren Co., Ohio, Sept. 26, 1829, and is a daughter of Francis and Abigail Whitney; Mr. and Mrs. Houser are the parents of five children, viz., Ephraim W., born March 11, 1850 ; Martin J., born Nov. 28, 1852 ; Margaret E., born March 12,1855 ; Samuel A., born Dec. 28, 1860, and Abbie A., born Sept. 3, 1862; Mr. Houser has, for the past few years, resigned the working of his farm to his two sons, and it is now cultivated by Samuel A., who is an industrious and dutiful son.

1900 Miami County Biography
Levi Houser, now deceased, was born in Spring Creek township May 20, 1823, and upon the old homestead farm remained until twenty years of age. He was reared to agricultural pursuits, and on leaving the parental roof he went to Dayton, where he worked on a farm with his uncle for two years. On the expiration of that period, with the capital which he had acquired through his industry and economy, he purchased eighty acres of land in Spring Creek township, and from that time forward made his home upon the property. In addition to the cultivation of the fields he purchased cattle and sheep, and was numbered among the extensive and successful stock dealers until his death. His business affairs were energetically prosecuted and always characterized by the utmost reliability.
On the 29th of March, 1849, Mr. Houser was united in marriage to Miss Christina Whitney, who was born in Warren county, Ohio, September 29, 1829, and came to Shelby county with her parents, Francis and Abigail (Blanchard) Whitney. Mr. and Mrs. Houser were married in Shelby county and their union was blessed with five children. Ephraim, the eldest, now living in Piqua, married Sophia Blalock and they had two children, Lee and Flossie.
The mother died, and by his second wife, Jennie, who was a sister of his first wife, he had four children, --Clyde, Nellie, Harry and Bessie. Martin, the second son of the family, now operates the home farm. He married Annie Schoemaker, and they have two children, Wilson and Gracie. Maggie is the wife of John Brennar, who is living in Staunton township, and they have two children living, Oscar and Earl, while Harry died in infancy. Samuel married Jennie Hammond and they have two children, Forest and Edith. Abigail is the wife of Harvey Anderson, a farmer of Spring Creek township, and their children are Bertha and Annie L.
When Mr. and Mrs. Houser took up their abode upon the farm where the widow now resides it was a tract of heavy timber land, but Mr. Houser cleared away the trees, plowed the land, and in due course of time garnered abundant harvests. Their first home was a log cabin, but in later years it was replaced by a more commodious and modern residence. As the years passed by all the accessories and conveniences of the model farm were added, and the property became a very valuable one, Mr. Houser continuing the cultivation of the fields until his death. He was for thirty-eight years a consistent member of the Baptist church, and in his life exemplified his religious faith. His political support was given the Republican party, and he served as township trustee, supervisor and school director for many years, discharging his duties with marked promptness and fidelity. He died May 6, 1884, and his remains were interred in the Fletcher cemetery. In his death the community lost a valued citizen, his neighbors a faithful friend and his family a loving husband and father. Mrs. Houser is now the owner of an eighty-acre farm in Spring Creek township and also has fifty-six acres in Staunton township, so that she is well supplied with life's comforts. She, too, is a consistent and faithful member of the Baptist church, and the many excellencies of her character have gained her warm regard
