researching: EYRE ROGERS

I am searching for further information on the Quaker Society of Free Traders, specifically membership circa the 1600s. Robert EYRE, b: 30 Jan 1648, the same day that King Charles I of England was executed, apprenticed under a William ROGERS, merchant of Bristol, England. William ROGERS was a Quaker, a soapmaker and a member of the Society of Merchant Venturers (1667). Robert EYRE settled in Bethel twp, Chester (now Delaware) cnty, Pennsylvania circa 1682 and remained there until his death in 1708. His parentage in England is unknown. There was an earlier EYRE/ROGERS marriage and there arises the possibility that Robert EYRE was apprenticed to William ROGERS based on family connections. William ROGERS had two brothers, Francis and George ROGERS, "Irish traders" and merchants of Cork, Ireland. Each purchased 2500 acres of land from William PENN in Mar 1681 but later resold the land and there is no indication that any of the three ROGERS brothers emigrated to Pennsylvania. George ROGERS left two sons and descendants in the Cork, Ireland area. I've found none for Francis ROGERS. However, in 1695, a Francis ROGERS, soapmaker and ship owner of Bristol, also became a member of the Society of Merchant Venturers. And two later Francis ROGERS from Bristol also became SMV members in 1724 and 1748 so there is the likelihood that Francis ROGERS left Cork and moved to Bristol.

Mike Wilson

researching: TROTH

Recent readings of biographies have revealed that there were a few occasions of a prolific couple gifting an infant to a childless couple. One such prominent example is President Andrew Jackson who, in 1809, legally adopted one of his recently born twin nephews. I have used the LDS microfilms tracing the transfers of a suspect couple to different MM's, but there is nothing I've read yet that has documented the births of their reported several children. As there is a possiblility of an ancestor's roots coming from this beginning (same time, place, name, and disappearing twin) where would be records for me to search of the Haddonfield, NJ, Tred Haven, MD and Third Haven, MD MM notes? I can only guess at this point, but the time period would be between 1785 and 1810 and the areas would be in the eastern Cheasapeake Bay shore of MD, north through DE and to southwest NJ. rgds, Mike Wilson --------------------------------------------------

researching: Baker

I have recently learned that a relative from the mid-1800s was Quaker. Her name was Elizabeth Baker. She married Frederick Schaeffer (Protestant) in 1855. They were from Pennsylvania, probably the Philadelphia area. Quite some time ago, I found a listing in a book about Pennsylvania that seems to be related, although I did not note the name of the book and cannot locate it. It listed Elizabeth's father as Jacob Baker. His children were: Margaret (Harden), Susana (Thompson), Emma (Powell), Jacob, Elizabeth (Schaeffer), and Enich or Erich. In keeping with traditional naming patterns from the time, Elizabeth and Fredrick's children fit with these names. I would guess that Elizabeth was born sometime in the 1830s. Jacob's (Elizabeth's father) parents were listed as Michel (or Michael) and Susana Baker. Their other children were Daniel, Isic and Martha. Martha married a Reverend Charles Jones. If anyone has any information on these people, PLEASE get in touch with me. Thanks! Lydia Daniel's children were: John, William, Sarah and Susana. Isic's children were: George, John and Mary. --------------------------------------------------

Friends commonly attended local meetings twice weekly, 1st day and 5th day. In Mass./RI during the 18th Century, almost all Friends marriages seem to have occurred in public meeting on 5th day, perhaps never at 1st day meeting.

Her parents are Benjamin Bradfield and Polly Gibson. I have information from Hannah all the way down to my children. Hannah married Isaac F. Lewis in 1891. I have a copy of their marriage license and their death certificates. My problem lies with Isaac's parents. According to Isaac's marriage license to Hannah, his father's name is Abrah B. Lewis and mother's maiden name is Hadley. On Isaac's death certificate it lists his father as Byril Lewis born in KY, and mother as Sopha Hadley born in KY. James Pollitt, Hannah's brother in law was the informant on Isaac's death, he filled this information out. Here is my problem. I find no information for a Abrah B. Lewis/Byril Lewis/or Abraham Lewis or that is married to a Sopha/Sophia Hadley. Any information I find for a Sophia Hadley has her married to a Byram C. Lewis, both being born in Illinois. I know Quaker's, as my great grandmother and my grandmother, keep pretty good records of family history. But where are my Lewis/Bradfield family records? Who is Isaac's father? Where did James Pollitt get the information? Hannah was living at the time of Isaac's death, she would have known who his parents are, so I have to believe the information came from her?? I am lost as to where to go next. Any help would be appreciated. My families live/lived in Parke, Fountain, and Marshall Counties IN..and Vermilion County IL.

She was converted under the preaching of Jane Wardlaw, a Quaker. Jane Wardlaw preached that the kingdom of God was at hand, and Jesus would return as a woman. Ann Lee began to preach, and was put into prison at Manchester, England for disturbing the peace. She finally "moved to America with seven companions, and formed the first Shaker settlement at Watervliet, near Albany, N.Y.". New Paragraph.

I know I had two great-aunts (the Elliott sisters) who went to Alaska during the Klondike gold rush era to set up a mission house, but I don't know much more about them. My parents are dead and I haven't been able to find any family records. I am wanting to become an active Friend but don't know how to go about it. Any assistance would be greatly apprecited. --------------------------------------------------

In a search to find the maiden name of Elijah Walton Jr.'s wife, Mary "S" (per her gravestone), we came across the following 6 notes from the London Grove MM (per PA Hist Soc Abstracts): 5-3-1809 (3 May 1809): Fallowfield complains of Elijah Walton for marriage by a hireling minister to one not a member. Isaac Hayes, John Broomhall, and Joseph Pennock to take an opportunity with him. 6-7-1809 (7 Jun 1809): No opportunity with Elijah Walton yet. 7-5-1809 (July 5, 1809): Report that Elijah Walton endeavored to justify his conduct. Case continued. 8-9-1809 (9 Aug 1809): Committee in Elijah Walton's case continued. 9-6-1809 (6 Sep 1809): Testimony signed against Elijah Walton: Samuel Gitchel and Abraham Rakestraw to offer him a copy. 10-4-1809 (4 Oct 1809): Testimony against Elijah Walton returned and recorded. Apparently Elijah married Mary without strict adherence to Friends rules, and was excommunicated for doing so. Can anyone suggest any records which may help identify when and where Elijah and Mary were married, and more importantly, how we might determine Mary's maiden name? Thanks for any help you can give. --------------------------------------------------

In response to Kristen's 5/26 inquiry about Quakers in Australia: a 1994 handbook called Quakers Around the World says "In 1832, James Backhouse and George Washington Walker [English Quakers]visited Australia and worked among Friends in many areas. As a result small meetings were formed in several states. In 1902...[was held] the lst General Meeting of Australian Friends, recognized as a Quarterly Meeting of London Yearly Meeting." [An independent] Australia Yearly Meeting was established in 1964, and in 1994 had 1032 members in "7 regional,13 local" and 23 other less permanent groups. There was 1 regional meeting in each state. (p.90) Backhouse's 1843 account of his several-year stay in Aust. mentions groups of Quaker settlers in Hobart (where the lst Quaker meeting was held in 1832), Kelvedon, and Launceston in Tasmania; Sydney in NS Wales (lst meeting 1834); and Port Adelaide, S. Australia (lst meeting 1937). In 1985, William Oats published a history of Quakers in Aust in the 19th Cent. called A Question of Survival. Notes I took from a review of it say in his research he found 864 members (adults & children) from the UK who had migrated to Aust. before 1862, plus an additional 300+ with some con- nection to Friends. --------------------------------------------------

My 4th gr-grandparents, Ralph Hunt and Rachel(Campbell) Hunt were Quakers. They were born,grew up and married in New Jersey, they would have been born around 1735-1745. I suspect they were in or around the Maidenhead, NJ; Sussex County, NJ area. No marriage record has been found for them but their first child was born in 1764. In 1765 they moved to York County, PA and in 1772 they moved again to Union County, SC where they joined the Bush River MM. The Bush River MM records are the first Quaker records I have found for them but I believe they were Quakers and was traveling with Quakers on each of these moves. I am looking for the parents of Ralph and Rachel and for thier marriage date/information. Their first child, a son, was named Samuel. If they went by the naming system of that time, Ralph's fathers name would have been Samuel.

researching: Morthland, Master, Vale?, Miller

Two Questions - 1. Many of my questions and that of a distant relative could be answered if we could find the monthly meeting notes for Warrington Monthly Meeting, York County, PA. There were what I hope were copies in the Genealogical Library in the Historical Society of PA in Philadelphia years ago when the security in such libraries was appallingly lax. Even then volumes I wanted were missing, and since then the volumes I had read have disappeared. Unfortunately, I did not take proper notes when I did read them, so all the volumes before 1873 would be useful. I thought they might be at Swarthmore or Haverford College libraries, but neither site seems to want to list the very details like that that would make further research worthwhile. Does anyone know where they are and how they can be accessed? 2.A distant relative and I are trying to connect her progenitor Abraham Morthland to my progenitor Hugh Morthland. Hugh bought a patent from the Penn Brothers in 1743 in Warrington Township. There is no record that he ever attended a Quaker meeting, but most of his eight children joined and married Quakers. Their names - Mary, William, Charles, Agness(married a non-Quaker),Rebecca, Samuel, Margaret, and Hugh. Abraham could be the son of any of the sons, but we think Samuel (married twice) is the most likely. Does anyone have any records of these families? --------------------------------------------------

researching: POPE

William Pope, b. abt. 1634 Bristol, England s/o Richard Pope was in Nansemond Co., VA by 1656 and died in Isle of Wight Co. VA abt. 1707. I have read in several places that William was a Quaker. William had among others a son Henry Pope, who married Sarah Watts. I am hoping to find birthdate and verify exact relationship to Henry Pope of Samuel (I) Pope, who died in Craven Co., NC in 1758. This Samuel had wife Sarah and five known children b. betw. abt. 1746 and 1757: Elizabeth, Samuel II d. Barnwell Dist. SC 1818 (my 3d great-grandfather), John, Mary and William. Some sources have it that Samuel I was the youngest child of Henry and Sarah; others show that his father was Joseph Pope, a son of Henry and Sarah which of course makes the latter his grandparents. All info gratefully received. Geoffrey Pope --------------------------------------------------

researching: Campbell

Looking for Great-grandfather. Information I have is from elderly aunts who disagree on some points. Great- grandfather's name is William Campbell. Lived in NYS. Wife's name is Elizabeth Carlos (DeCarlos?). I have no birthdate or death date as they were both deceased before aunts were born (1927 & 1929). According to stories, he played bagpipes, wore kilts on special occasions and would dance jigs. So I would guess he came right from Scotland. They had 4 or 5 sons and 1 daughter. Son William was a fireman is NYC, lost a leg. Son John died in NYC around the 1930's. Son Walt, Verbank area(?). Son Russell Hart Campbell, my grandfather, born 1889 (Bangall, Dutchess Co. NY) died 1966 (Millbrook, NY) place of death was a hospital, Rosary Hill(?) Hawthorne, NY. He was married to Mary Elizabeth Gershey (born in Boston area, baptized at St. Michael's Cathedral, her father was a gilder of books). There was an Albert but aunts weren't in agreement whether he was a son or nephew. They name Lillian as daughter . Grandfather Russell did not have anything to do with relatives. Grandmother said great-grandfather Campbell was a Quaker (She had actually attended a Quaker meeting once, wheter it was with her father or mother-in-law, no one could tell me. [Gram was Irish Catholic with priests for uncles or cousins.]. Have searched throughout Dutchess Co. Cemetaries have come up with nothing. Local records for Bangall/Stanfordville, NY show no information for a couple years before and after my grandfather's birth. My nephew is also searching but we are using same limited information. Any help will be apreciated. Thank you. --------------------------------------------------

Hello, I am looking for information on Samuel Wing Kelly/Kelley/Killey that was born abt. 1770 and died in Dutchess County New York on Mar 9, 1840. I have found records of Samuels marriage to Margaret Hoag in Quaker records nine partners monthly meeting Dutchess County New York. Can anyone first explain to me what Nine partners means?? I know this was in Oblong so I am not real sure if Nine Partners is a town hall name ect..? Also I found a record for a Removel in the same place and was wondering what removel meant? Was it because someone didnt follow the rules or was it cause they died ect??? As you can tell I am not real familiar with the Quaker religion and I totally apologize. But I am trying to learn. I also found Samuel and Margarets parents in the same records but I couldnt find any of Samuel or Margarets childern? I know that Margaret died in 1816-1817 and that leads me to my next question? I know that Samuel remarried a Miss/Mrs. Munger and if she wasnt of the Quaker belief was this marriage allowed? Could she convert? would there be record of this?What would happen if she wasnt Quaker and they got married? Any help with this subject would be wonderful! Again I apologize for all the questions!

I have seen numerous records stating that William Quaintance (b c 1719) married Tamsin Buffington (b c.1723). A recent letter informs that that this is incorrect. The writer offered no proof (yet), but states that Tamson was really a dtr. of George Orson..thus, she was Tamson Orson. In attempting to prove (or disprove) this, I came across a will of Elizabeth Buffington Freeman in which she gives articles of clothing: "To sister Hannah Dean, to cousin Mary Dean, sister Lydia Martin, cousins Mary and Betty Martin, sisters Mary Turner, Phebe Buffington, Susanna Hanson and DAMSON QUAINTANCE, articles of wearing apparel." The will is dated November 27, 1748/9 and was proved 6 months later. Now I am thoroughly confused! Does anyone have documentation of a marriage between William Quaintance and Tamson (Damson?)

I have a question about a very early (and famous) Quaker, Samuel Shaddock/Shaddocke/Shattuck (b. abt. 1620 England; m. Grace; d. June 6, 1698 Salem, MA), and someone I believe to be his daughter. I am descended from Mercy/Mary Shattuck (b. March 16, 1654 Salem, MA; d. April 2, 1710 Beverly, MA) and her husband Andrew Elliot. (Married December 9, 1680 Beverly, Essex, MA). I have some evidence---not enough---that this Mercy Shattuck is famous Samuel Shattuck's daughter. Can you find any evidence for me that the Mercy/Mary Shattuck illuminated above is one of famous Samuel's children? Samuel Shattuck is of course the Quaker who went back to England and obtained an order from the King to alleviate persecution of the Quakers by the Puritans in early Colonial MA. Much has been written about him. email ssmillers@netzero.net --------------------------------------------------
