56 I'm not convinced that this is the correct Frank M Bilyeu. There is a photo of Frank and his wife--labeled Mary--at George and Sophia's 50th anniversary part in late 1946 (note that Paradine died in May, 1946). However, he is buried in the same cemetery as the parents of George and Frank Bilyeu. Bilyeu, Francis Marion (I076)
 
57 I'm not convinced this is the right spouse for Frank Bilyeu, or even the right Frank M Bilyeu. There is a photo of George C's brother Frank and his wife Mary at George and Sophia's 50th anniversary party in late 1946. Alexander, Paradine (I661)
 
58 I'm skeptical about his being married to Nancy Workman and Mary Jane Coker. Note that his son John then marries a Nancy Workman. I can't help but wonder if Mary Jane Coker & MJ Dyer are the same person. Note, too, that daughter Nancy marries a Dyer. I think someone got mixed up.

64 It was at the height of the tyrannous reign of Carles the First, and the persecutions of Laud, the prelate of the English Church, who sought to exterminate Puritanism at the dissolution of the Parliament of 1629, that multitudes of Protestant non-conformists emigrated to America, seeking refuge in a country where they might have freedom of conscience and worship. The great emigration began in 1630 and continued until about 1640. Among these seekers for religious freedom were Eaton and Davenport's company, "of good characters and fortunes."

JOSEPH NORTHRUP, it is said on good authority, was a member of that company. They came from England in the ship "Hector and Martha, " (or "Hector and Martin") landing at Boston, July 26, 1638. The emigrants of that period were, in great part, men of the professional and middle classes. The bulk, however, were God-fearing farmers from Lincolnshire and Eatern counties. Eaton and Davenport's company were mostly from Yorkshire, Hertfordshire and and Kent. It cannot now be determined from which county Joseph came -- perhaps from Yorkshire' and if of Sir Richard Saltonstall's company, as it sometimes has been asserted, this is highly probable.

Sir Saltonstall's company had spent some time at Wethersfield, CT, having come there from Watertown, Mass., but later came to New Haven. The Eaton and Davenport company, meanwhile, had sailed down the coast from Boston, in search of a good harbor, until they came to New Haven, where they found the object of their search, and remained at New Haven about a year.

In 1639, members from both companies formed the settlement of Milford, CT. The Hertfordshire and Yorkshire emigrants seems to have tended to Milford, while others went to Guilford. Rev. Peter Prudden, of the Saltonstall company, whose wife was from Egton, Yorkshire, went to Milford. He was much beloved, and many Yorkshiremen followed him.

On Nov. 29, 1639, the little company who had come to Milford from New Haven signed a document which laid the foundation for their government of the "plantation." It read: "Those persons whose names are hereunto written are allowed to be Free Planters, having, for the present, the liberty to act in the choice of public officers, for the carrying on of public affairs in this plantation." Church membership was a conditon of admission as a "Free Planter." Fourty-four persons signed as such. Joseph Northup, who was one of the company, was not then a church member, but with nine others was permitted to sign under the names of the full-fledged Free Planters. At a General Court (town meeting), held Nov. 24, 1640, the place was named "Milford." On Jan. 9, 1642, Joseph joined the First Church of Milford (organized at New Haven, Aug. 22, 1639, just before they came to Milford), and thereby became of right a member of that privileged class. He was married to Frances Norton about 1647. He died Sept. 11, 1669, thirty years after the settlement of Milford.

The Governor and company granted a Patent to Milford, dated May 22, 1713. The names of the Northrups, attached to the Patent (the original of which is in the handwritng of Jonathan Law, Esq., afterward Governor of Connecticut) in the order in which they signed, are as follows: John, son of Jeremiah; Zophar and Jeremiah, sons of Joseph; Jeremiah, Jr.; Joseph, James and Moses, sons of Joseph, Jr.; Amos and Joel, sons of Samuel; Daniel and William, sons of the first Joseph.

The Colonists of Milford lived at a period when there was danger from hostile Indians. Their settlement was made shortly after the Pequot War. Although they purchased their lands of the tribes in possession, and sought their friendship, yet they soon saw indications of hostility, and as a protection built a palisaide of logs enclosing a mile square, within which they had their dwellings. The Indians became hostile in 1645-6, and guards were kept day and night. They went to church, carrying their rifles with them. The Indians were again troublesome in 1653. In 1700 there was much danger. It was a time of general alarm throughout the country for four or five years. The colonists of New Haven and Milford had all along purchased from the Indians the lands they settled upon, and in every way treated the Indians kindly and fairly, but the hostility of these sons of the forest was awakened by their fears of the growing numbrs and power of the whites, and the dawning consciousness that sooner or later they would inevitably be driven from their ancient homes. If they could have written history, it would go far to justify their hostility.

In 1647, Joseph Northrup married Mary, daughter of Francis Norton, who came to Milford from Wethersfield with the Rev. Peter Prudden and his party. Joseph died Sept. 11, 1669. His will was dated Sept. 1, 1669. It mentions of his children only Joseph, Samuel, Jeremiah and John. Codicil to his will says, "My mother shall have a living in my house as long as she lives" -- perhaps meaning his wife's mother, Mrs. Norton. His wife survived him, and made her will Jan. 24, 1683; mentions Joseph, Samuel, Jeremiah (omits John, who probably was dead), Zophar, Daniel, William and Mary -- the latter two being in their minority -- also her mother Norton. Inventory of her estate dated Feb. 28, 1683. All their children were born in Milford, CT.

The surname Northrup was spelled as here given in the earliest records and inscriptions on tombstones -- rup -- sometimes -rupp, and occasionally roop, and more often -rop, although this last termination was not common at an early period. Joseph, his son Joseph and his sons, James, Joseph and Moses, and most of their descendants, spelled the name Northrup. Northrop, however, was the common form in England.

66 It's unknown at this time whether this is the same Sarah E Seaver, daughter of David Seaver, Jr. David's Sarah was b.1837 & would have been 15 yrs older than Wesley Misener. But note that most of their kids were born in Vernon Co., MO, the county bordering Bourbon Co., KS, & where the Gorses & at least a few Seavers lived in Coal Twp.

73 Letter to St Nicholas magazine, 1908
Vol 35, Part 1, pg 751
Section: "Nature and Science for Young Folks"

Comstock, Nebraska
Dear St Nicholas: When the weather gets warm and the beehives are full of bees they begin to get ready to swarm. They raise a dozen or more young queens, but the old one generally goes with the first swarm. They come out in the air, fly around, and then settle. When they begin to settle a few bees light and the others keeps piling on them and hanging to one another till they all get settled. Sometimes there is no more than a quart of bees in a swarm, and we have had them when they would fill a big pail. Sometimes they will not stay in the cluster more than half an hour, and sometimes they hang all day before they go away. When we go to get them we spread a sheet down in front of the hive and shake the bees on it and they run in. If they light on a tree we sometimes cut the branch off and carry it to the hive. They quite often settle on a tree, and we have had them light on the fence or on the ground. The picture is of a swarm that settled on a sulky-plow seat. My little sister is finishing her breakfast beside them.
--Ailsa B. Amos (age 12)

One remembers while reading this that Ailsa's mother Arabella was known for her beekeeping skills.

74 Mae's name and birthdate is engraved on Sylvia Arnold's headstone in New Hope Cemetery, Kaiser, MO, but evidently she moved to CA before she could use it. Arnold, Mae (I177)
 
75 Many places give his birth year as 1870. However, John's age on the 1870 census is 2 and he is living with his grandparents. The rest of the family is nowhere to be found in the U.S., suggesting that Barbara (Galloway) Love has already died and John W Love has removed to Scotland with the older children. Additional evidence for this is that John W and "Aribella" appear in the 1871 Scottish census. John G evidently followed later. Love, John Galloway (I7)

JOHN WESLEY DOBSON RITES

HERE THIS AFTERNOON

John W. Dobson died at his home in
Eldon, Tuesday, March 27, 1951, and his
funeral will be held at Phillips Funeral Home
at 2;00o'clock this afternoon (Thurs.), with
Rev. B. F. Dinwiddie in charge. There will

1882, near Tuscumbia, the son of Thomas J.
and Nancy Carroll Dobson. He was married

children were born. Mrs. Dobson preceded
him in death December 11, 1917. On May 3,
1932, he was married to Lela May Carrender
who survives him with his two sons, Robert

Kansas City, Kansas and two sisters, Mrs.

Dobson, John Wesley (I142)
 
77 Margaret's date of birth is a real question. The source with the most accurate date--the LDS, citing the 1851 Scottish census--says that she was born in 1826. On the 1860 US census, she gives her age as 30, making her born around 1830. Galloway, Margaret (I46)

80 May have had a brother named Nicholas, and father may have been Henry. Henry Sever/Seever appears in the Monaghan, York Co., PA, taxables lists starting 1779. Nicholas and Michael Sever/Severs/Seever appear in the tax lists and censuses starting 1782/85, respectively.

82 Member of 3rd PA Heavy Artillery. Buried in Loudon Park National Cemetery in Baltimore. In "The Amidon Family", Frank Eugene Best gives his grave as No.1818, which appears to be incorrect. The National Cemetery Association lists him in Sec A, No.1085 and this is backed up by photographic evidence (see http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSsr=41&GScid=109423&GRid=44539461& ). Amidon, William Farmer (I722)
 
83 Most sources spell his name Argyl. However, in our family and on photos it's always been spelled Argyle. My father's middle name was Argyle, after him, and so that's how I am going to spell it here. Hamilton, Argyle Jarvis (I267)
 
84 OBITUARY, BY ALDER SPRINGS CORRESPONDENT: Mrs. Rebecca Ann Crane was born in Miller County in 1842, departed this life March 10, 1922 at the ripe age of 80 years.

She became ill of la grippe on Saturday and only lived until the following Friday, when the death angel called her to her reward. Her parents died during her childhood days and when 16 years of age she was united in marriage to William W. Bilyeu, who was a native of Indiana. To this union 13 children were born, 9 of whom preceded her to the great beyond. Those living are J. H. Bilyeu, Hancock, R. 1; G. C. Bilyeu of Ulman; F. M. Bilyeu of Dixon, L. A. Bilyeu of Meta and Mrs. Mary Alexander of Dixon. Since the death of her husband 10 years ago she has made her home with her only daughter, except occasional visits among the other children. Besides her 5 children, 36 grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren, she leaves one brother, John Crane, of Ulman, and two half-brothers, B. H. and Jerry Crane, of near Tuscumbia, to mourn her departure. But they sorrow not as those who have no hope because of the fact that this mother lived a Christian life 50 years. She was baptized into Christ at 30 years of age and since then, though many trials and difficulties beset her pathway, she withstood all bravely, living a consistent righteous life. Hence forth, we feel assured that there is a crown of righteousness laid up for her, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give her at his appearing. John, the Divine, says in Revelations 14:13, "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord." Also David, the Psalmist, says in Psalms 116:15, "Precious in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his saints."

"Grandma," as she was commonly called, was loved by all who knew her, especially by children, as she was so kind and gentle in her ways to them. She would often tell them war stories and of some of the hardships she endured while her husband served in the Civil War. She had received a pension from the U. S. government since the death of her husband.

Funeral services were held at the meeting house here by Elder H. H. Diestelkamp of Belle, after which the mortal remains were placed in the cemetery near by to await the resurrection morn. 
Crane, Rebecca Ann (I059)
 
85 Obituary:
"Eliza A. Northrop was born in Cornwall, Conn., November 16 1823. She was a descendant of one of Massachusetts' first settlers, Joseph Northrop, who landed in Boston in 1637. Her grandfather, Dr. Joel Northrop was a surgeon in the Revolutionary army. While still a little girl, her sister married the noted Cherokee leader, John Ridge, with whom she spent some time in his Georgia home before the Cherokee's moved West. Eliza married Dr. Uriah Dorman at New Marlborough, Mass, on November 27th, 1845.

In 1853, they moved to Wisconsin where she dwelt at Berlin and Plainfield until the death of her husband eighteen years ago, when she came to the Indian Territory where she has lived the most of the time since. She was among the first settlers in Mounds [OK] which was her last home on this earth.
