Mokane (Missouri) Herald-Post


Joseph Duncan.
Joseph C. Duncan came from Buckingham county, Virginia, and, after stopping about a year in Kentucky, arrived in Callaway county, Missouri, and located near Readsville in 1830. He and Jarrod May entered eighty acres of land each, being the first land entered in that neighborhood. Joseph C. Duncan had six sons: Frederick, Onslow, Joe, who died young, Jerome, Ned and Merritt, Frederick moved to the state of Oregon just before the close of the war. The father and all his living sons, except Frederick, were known to be in sympathy with the South. Having lived in that part of the country, they loved it and its institutions. Frederick claimed to be in sympathy with the North, and enlisted in the militia, which act his Southern-sympathizing neighbors disapproved as well as all his father’s family. This bitterness continued to exist until after the close of the war, and it may be that it exists to a small extent up to the present time. It was known by very few of Frederick’s friends at the time, that he did this in order to promote peace among neighbors. He believed by doing as he did, he could benefit all his neighbors than by any other he could pursue. It was always known in his neighborhood a short time before when the militia would pay that part of the county a visit, and on such occasions, Frederick always accompanied them. nor was there any murdering or robbing committed on these scouts when Frederick was with them. There were some of the Southern people who still retain reason. Frederick knew this. He would approach some of these, and tell them how suicidal it was to contend without arms with well-armed men and that would surely bring trouble upon themselves, their families and their friends. He also used his influence with the opposite party, trying to persuade them to desist from all lawlessness and cruelties, that it was not the business of soldiers to make war on unarmed men, who were remaining at home and attending to their private affairs, neither was it their business to make war on defenseless women and children. From some cause, probably at his own request, he was discharged from the militia, and soon after moved to the state of Oregon, where he died a short time after. This exoneration of Fred Duncan is written the more cheerfully as the writer had some acquaintance with him both before and during the war, and he always seemed to be a good sort of a man.
The father, Joseph C. Duncan died soon after the close of the war. Merritt was a lawyer and resided in Mexico, MO. He also preached occasionally. Onslow went to Texas and it is believed he died there. Jerome was a house carpenter. He resided in Audrain county, Mo., and died there some years ago. Ned is a physician, and is in Monroe county, Mo. There were two daughters born to Joseph C. Duncan and wife. The elder married Isham McMahan, and a daughter of this couple became the wife of Capt. William M. Scholl. The younger of the daughters of Joseph C. Duncan married Marshall S. Coats. Nearly all the Duncan family are dead, and none of those living reside in this county….
…Elder William Coats was one among the earliest settlers on the prairie to which he gave his name. He preached I at many places throughout the county in the early 20’s. There were several other settlers in this part of the county in early times, of whom very little is known. There were Jackson Petty, Marshal S. Coats, the McCalls, Berrys and several others. Michael Klein was born in Germany near the river Rhine, and he married a woman who was born on the opposite side of the river in French territory. He came to St. Louis, Mo. when quite a young man where he remained about two years and thence to Portland, Mo., where he established a wagon factory, and after remaining in this business for many years, he added to it furniture and hardware. He had the misfortune a few years ago of being burned out, both buildings and stock were destroyed. He then purchased another building and put in a small stock of hardware, and is in that business at the present time. He is now past his three-score and ten years, and is some what broken in health and strength.

Obituary

The Rev. Dr. Barbara Warren McCall, a pioneering clergy woman in the United Church of Christ, died October 26, 2007, at Pilgrim Place retirement community in Claremont, California. She was 93.
She was born in Holden, Massachusetts, in 1914, the first child of William H. Warren and Edith Brierly Warren. She graduated from Mt. Holyoke College in 1935 and studied at the Chicago Theological Seminary. Barbara and her late husband, the Rev. Dr. Clarence Field McCall, Jr., were ordained together in the Congregational Church of Roundup, Montana, in 1938. They served briefly as co-pastors there. Then, for many years she focused on raising their four children, supporting her husband's ministries, and leading workshops and training events. At the time of his death in 1967, "Mac" McCall was UCC Conference Minister for Southern California. Entering a dramatically new chapter, Barbara was called as interim Associate Minister of the First United Church of Oak Park, Illinois. The following year she joined the staff of the UCC Council for Lay Life and Work based in New York City, and consulted with churches and conferences in the New England region.
In 1972 she was appointed special assistant to UCC President Robert Moss as executive for the Task Force on Women in Church and Society. The Task Force report to the 1973 General Synod addressed the urgent need for the church at all levels to actively empower women both in ordained and lay roles. It advocated the adoption of inclusive language, identified systemic points of resistance, and led to the formation of the national Coordinating Center for Women in Church and Society. Later that year Barbara was named UCC editor of A.D. Magazine, and remained in that role until it ceased publication in 1975. She was a pastoral therapist in private practice in Concord, Massachusetts for several years until retiring to Pilgrim Place in Claremont, California, in 1982.
Barbara's contributions to the Church were recognized in 1973 when she was awarded an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from the Chicago Theological Seminary; and again in 1987 when she received the national Antoinette Brown Award for outstanding leadership by a woman within the United Church of Christ.
She is survived by her daughter, (Dr.) Judith Brierly Campbell and her husband Bruce Suttle of Urbana, Illinois; three sons (the Rev.) Merritt C. McCall and his wife Carolyn of Portland, Oregon; (the Rev. Dr.) Robert M. McCall and his wife Rebecca of Blue Hill, Maine; and (the Rev. Dr.) John B. McCall and his wife Andrea of South Portland, Maine. Other survivors include her two brothers, Henry W. Warren and his wife Mary of Aurora, Colorado, and William H. Warren and his wife Caroline of New Haven, Vermont; grandchildren and great grandchildren.
There will be a memorial service at Pilgrim Place in Claremont, California, in early December. Family and friends will also gather after Memorial Day in the Warren Chapel of the First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, Holden, Massachusetts. Burial will be in the Grove Cemetery, Holden, at that time.
Gifts in Barbara's memory may be made to the United Church of Christ, Women's Ministries, 700 Prospect Avenue East, Cleveland, Ohio, 44115-1100; to Pilgrim Place, 660 Avery Rd. Claremont, California, 91711; or the charity of choice.

A sad timeline emerges for the first ten years of the married life of Elizabeth Jane Campbell. She and husband John had five children, Ann born 1852, Charles born 1853, Harriet born about 1856, John Jr. born about 1858 and Jane born in 1860. John Jr. died after 11 months of scrofula illness in 1859, husband John died in 1860 after five years of consumption, and Charles died in 1871.

On the New York Census for 1865 Elixabeth Jane, now known as Eliza, shows as an employee for James W. Taggard in Chesterfield, New York, and living in his boarding house with daughters Ann and Hattie. In 1870 the U. S. Federal Census shows her as a domestic servant in a boarding house in Manchester, New Hampshire and daughter Hattie living with her. There is no record of Ann's whereabouts. In 1880 the Federal Census shows Eliza living in Bedford, New Hampshire, with husband James F. Heselton, daughter Hattie and grandson John D. Campbell.

Born in Leeds, (West) Yorkshire, England on 15 Apr 1680, the (probable) son of Michael Gilbert (II) and Dorothy Hargrave. Immigrated from Leeds, (West) Yorkshire, England to Maryland about about 1699, the year in which his name appears for the first time in the tax tables of Baltimore county, Maryland. Was first married to Margaret, maiden name unknown, in 1704 in Baltimore, Maryland. Jarvis and Margaret were the parents of six children: Michael, Jarvis, Solomon, Elizabeth, Jarvis and Samuel (I). After Margaret's death in 1715, Jarvis married a second time to Mary, maiden name unknown (some have suggested that it was Gallion, though this name is not proven). Jarvis and Mary were the parents of ten children: Charles (1717-1720), Mary (1719-1720), Hannah (1721- ), Charles (1723-1797), Aquila (1726-1806), Benjamin (1729-1791), Daniel (1731-1809) , Mary (1733-1785), Martha (1736-1799), and Arabella (1738- ). Jarvis died on 05 Jun 1739 in Baltimore, Maryland, and was most likely interred in the Spesutia Church cemetery, St. Georges Parish, Baltimore county, Maryland, where he served as a vestryman.

Federal Census showed Martha as divorced living with daughter Eugenia in Longview, Cowlitz County, Washington and Francis as divorced living with his mother and stepfather in Longview, Cowlitz County, Washington. On September 28, 1931 Martha P. McCullah and Francis N. McCullah remarried in Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri, and in the U. S. Federal Census for 1940 were shown living together in Longview, Cowlitz County, Washington and their daughter Eugenia living with grandmother Eugenia Campbell, also in Longview. On November 17, 1961 in Cowlitz County, Washington Eugenia Hoyt McCullah married Henry Hollister Nash (born September 29, 1922 in Cambridge, Middlesex County, Massachusetts and died January 15, 2000 in Multnomah, Oregon) . Re Eugenia Hoyt NcCullah in the U. S. Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007 the notes show "Mar 1943: Name listed as EUGENIA HOYT MCCULLAH; Oct 1958: Name listed as EUGENIA HOY CAMPBELL; 03 Mar 1975: Name listed as EUGENIA HOYT NASH; 08 Feb 2001: Name listed as EUGENIA H NASH". At the time of her wedding in 1961 Washington marriage records show her name Eugenia Hoyt Campbell. In January 1949 a Northwest Airlines Inc. passenger list from Honolulu to Portland show her as Eugenia H. Campbell. Given the number of times and where Eugenia's name shows as Campbell and considering the events in her natural parents relationship, the question of adoption arises and research continues. Depending if and by whom Eugenia may have been adopted William's line may continue. There are no known issue of granddaughter Eugenia.

Time line for Jane Campbell

1960 - Jane Campbell was born April 12, 1860 in Keeseville, New York. The date of birth shown on the death certificate is April 12, 1861.  The 1860 U. S. Federal Census shows Jane as one month old so 1860 would seem to be the correct year.  The 1900 Federal Census shows her birth as April 1860.  The best date of birth seems to be April 12, 1860.
 
 On the 1860 U. S. Federal Census Jane is shown with her mother, sisters Ann and Harriet, and brother Charles.  Father John and brother John both died in 1860 and 1859 respectively, before the census.
 
1865 - On the 1865 New York State Census Jane is not with her mother who is working for James Taggard.  Ann and Harriet are with their mother and brother Charles has died.  Jane is not yet accounted for.
 
1870 - On the U. S. Federal Census for 1870 Jane is listed as Junnie(Jennie) Manley living in Middlebury, VT with Albert F. and Laura Manley. She is aged 10 and shows born in Vermont which is erroneous.

1882 - Jane's mother's probate records show three heirs, her daughters, Mrs. Anna B. Badger, Manchester, NH; Miss Hattie E. Campbell, Manchester, NH; and Jane - now Miss Jennie C. Manley of Middlebury, Vermont. 

1900 - On the 1900 U. S. Federal Census Jane is shown as Jennie C. Willard living with Albert Manley and Albert M. Badger in Middlebury, Vermont.   Albert Manley, is shown as head of household and widowed. Jennie relationship to him as dau law ((daughter-in-law(no other children of Albert known) or daughter-by-law?)).  Jennie is shown as married in 1888.  Also this was her first marriage per the 1930 U. S. Federal Census.  Jennie's death certificate shows her spouse as Frank Willard age 93 and living.  No trace of Frank Willard has been found in the U. S. Federal Census records thru 1940.  Albert M. Badger's relationship to the head of household shows as boarder.  He certainly seems to be the son of Jennie's sister Ann(Anna) and was born in March 1895.  Jennie's sister Ann died in Nashua, New Hampshire May 19, 1896.  Sometime after the 1900 census was taken he must have been adopted by Jennie as Albert M. Badger's birth record shows him as Albert Willard born March 26, 1895 in Nashua, father as Frank E. Willard and mother as Jane Campbell.  Subsequent records his full name to be Albert Manley Willard.

1905 - Jennie appears in Vermont Probate Court records as Administratrix for the Estate of Martha M. Manley. In her petition for appointment she cites that Martha "on the 10th day of December 1896 at said Middlebury died intestate; that your petitioner is only child and daughter of said deceased; that said deceased left surviving no other heir or next of kin except your petitioner who is the only person known to your petitioner as interested in the estate of said deceased".

1910 - On the 1900 U. S. Federal Census Jennie and son Albert are shown as boarders in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Nothing has yet been found for Jennie and son Albert on the 1920 Federal Census. However an article in The Portsmouth Herald on May 26, 1923 On both the 1930 and 1940 Federal Censuses Jennie and Albert are living together in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

1947 - Jennie died June 23, 1947 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and is buried in Harmony Grove Cemetery in Portsmouth. New Hampshire Death and Disinterment Records, 1754-1947 also shows her name as Jennie C. Willard (Jennie C. Manley); father as Campbell Manley; husband as Frank Willard alive aged 93; and informant as A. M. Willard, Portsmouth, NH. Does showing the father as Campbell Manley refer to Campbell who was the natural father and Manley as the adoptive? father?

The transition from Jane Campbell to Jennie C. Manley has not yet been fully resolved but considering the foregoing it appears that Jane was legally adopted. Jennie seemed to have all the necessary prerequisites to petition the court to be the administratrix of Martha Manley's estate and the declarations she made in so doing. She most likely was with the Manleys before 1865 as she was then no longer with her mother and sisters. In addition there seems to have been some connection between Jennie's mother and Albert Manley. Jennie seems to have continued to be a part of her natural family. In her natural mother's estate records in 1882 Jennie was listed as an heir as aforementioned. She also took in and apparently adopted her sister Ann(Anna) Badger's child Albert Manley Badger. Interesting the child was so named as it could infer a special family connect with Albert Manley.

Re the Manleys: Albert F. Manley was born in Hubbardton, Rutland County, Vermont on March 30, 1818; died in Middlebury, Addison County, Vermont on August 21, 1904 and was buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Pittsford, Rutland County, Vermont. He married Martha Beckley on February 2, 1845 in Weathersfield, Windsor County, Vermont. Martha was born March 16, 1825 in Weathersfield, Windsor County, Vermont; died December 10, 1896 in Middlebury, Addison County, Vermont and was buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Pittsford, Rutland County, Vermont. One further note - on the 1850 U. S. Federal Census Albert is listed as age 31 and Martha age 24. On the aforementioned 1870 census Albert is listed age 50 and "Laura" Manley listed age 45. Correct Albert's age to 52 then the age differential remains at 7 years. Martha and "Laura" seem to be the same person. No other relevant sightings of Laura Manley have been made.


The year following Jennie's death the Veterans of Foreign Wars of Portsmouth, New Hampshire dedicated a plaque in her memory.  In the dedicatory address it was stated "She was a graduate of Middlebury College, Middlebury, Vt., and the New York School of Art". (Middlebury College has no record re Jennie under any of her surnames.)  The 1940 Federal Census Jennie shows as having completed three years of college. 
 

 
No record re Frank Willard has been found and according to her death certificate he was still living in 1947 but her son Albert's obituary in 1954 states he was "the son of the late Frank and Jennie C. (Manley) Willard".  The VFW dedicatory address indicates she was a widow of a civil war veteran which is not in agreement with her death certificate which stated her husband to still be living.

U. S. Federal Census for 1940 shows Mabel as a resident of the Oregon State Hospital of the Insane in Salem, Oregon and that she also was there as of April 1, 1935. She is also shown as married, as does John elsewhere in the census.

1940 - Living in Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon shown as married but wife not listed. Mabel shown elsewhere as resident in Oregon State Hospital for the Insane

U. S. World War I Draft Registration Card, 1917-1918, signed by John D. Campbell confirms date of birth and shows his residence as Susanville, Lassenville County, California, and nearest relative as Mrs. Mabel E. Campbell. His occupation was an edgerman at the Lassen Lumber & Box Company.

U. S. World War II Registration Card signed by J. D. Campbell confirms his date and place of his birth. Also would add credence that Mabel was elsewhere as another person was named as the one that would always know where signer was.

Regarding John's father -- No records of his birth have been found in New Hampshire records. It seems his birth was recorded in Oregon by John years later. On that record his father shows as "William James Campbell" and his mother as "Harriet Ellen Rowe". On all U. S Federal Censuses the recording of his mother's place of birth is consistent and correct as New York. However re his father's place of birth the census shows for -- 1880 as no father, 1910 as Texas, 1920 as Kentucky, 1930 as U. S. and 1940 it was not a question to be answered.

Family History [photocopy of hand-written account by Cora Belle Campbell McCall, held by John Brierly McCall. no date but ends with 1934]

Clarence Field McCall was born in Reform, MO. on August 11, 1881 the sixth of the seven children of Kemuel and Maggie McCall. He graduated from Westminster College in Fulton in 1900. Cora Belle Campbell was born in Joliet, Ill. on Nov 17, 1878, the fourth of five children of Merritt and Lillie Campbell. The family moved to Claremont, Calif in 1891. Cora graduated from the University of California in 1901. These two met at the Bible Teachers' Training School in New York in the fall of 1907. They were married in Los Angeles July 14, 1908 and sailed for Japan in the following September as missionaries of the United Christian Missionary Society (Disciples of Christ). We spent our first winter in Osaka and moved to Akita in May, 1909. There we lived for a year in the little Japanese house where Merritt was born on September 16. We spent the winter of 1910-11 in Tokyo and then returned to Akita and lived until 1929 in the big mission home. Field was born there in 1912. Robert was born in a Tokyo hospital on April 28, 1914 and died in Akita on Dec 20 1915. Frances was born in Karuizawa in 1915. In March 1916 we went to America on our first furlough. We spent the summer in Miss. and one year in Claremont and one in Long Beach and returned to Akita in August 1918. Merritt died in May 1920. Field and Frances studied the Calvert Course until we went to Oberlin, Ohio is 1925. They were in school there and when we returned Field entered the Canadian Academy in Kobe where he stayed for three years. In 1929 we went to Tokyo for a year. Father taught in Aoyama Gakuin. Field and Frances entered the American School and Mother studied in the Japanese Language School. In the fall of 1930 we went to Niigata having joined the American Board Mission. Field and Frances lived in the school dormitories after that. Field graduated in June 1931 and went to America to enter Berea College. Frances graduated in 1933 and went to Berea returning home with Field and Bill Murphy who had come to spend the summer. We had a delightful time for six weeks, visited Akita to see our old home and friends and the graves of Merritt and Robert.

In April 1934 while looking forward to our furlough we were asked by our Board to consider going to Micronesia and they suggested that Father should go to see the field and look into the work which he did while Mother stayed in Karuizawa recuperating from a very serious operation performed in the February before.

JOHN T. BRIERLY
DIES IN FLORIDA
Widely Known Retired Head of
Brierly-Lombard Co. Made
Home in Holden

John T. Brierly, 74 years old, of Holden, for many years a widely known Worcester business man, died Saturday in Orlando, Fla. Mr. Brierly was born in Millbury April 21, 1854.
On graduating from the Millbury High school he became associated with his father in cotton manufacturing. He held a position in the woolen mill of Ashworth & Jones, Valley Falls, and later became superintendent of the Brick City mill at Cherry Valley. Two years after he associated himself with the Sumner-Pratt Co. of Worcester, a business founded in 1847, being one of the oldest mill supply houses in New England.
The firm of Sumner-Pratt & Co. became Crawford & Co., in 1898, Mr. Brierly being the junior partner, and in October, 1909, upon the retirement of Mr. Crawford, Mr. Brierly became the sole owner. In January, 1910, the Lombard Machine Co., consolidated with Mr. Brierly under the name of Brierly-Lombard Co., with Mr. Brierly as president, treasurer and general manager.
He was a director of the Whittaker Reed Co. of Worcester and the Worcester Collateral Loan Association. He was a member of the Rotary Club and the Worcester County Mechanics association, was a past noble grand of the Anchoria Lodge, I. O. O. F., one of the charter members and a member Regulus lodge of Knights of Pythias.
Mr. Brierly was an active worker in Pilgrim Church, Worcester, until his removal with his family to Holden, where he became a member of the Congregational church of that town.
He interested himself in all town matters, serving on many of the important committees, especially at the time of the installation of the town water system.
After his retirement from business he spent most of his time in Holden until the death of his wife, Julia E. Pierce, in October, 1923, when it became his custom to spend his winter in the South.
He leaves four daughters: Mrs. George W. Field of Scarsdale, N. Y.; Mrs. Eugene A. Copeland of Worcester; Mrs. William H. Warren and Mrs. William J. Jamieson of Holden; 12 grandchildren; a brother Charles E., and two sisters, Elizabeth A., and Mrs. Albert W. Libby, all of Worcester.
The funeral will be tomorrow in Holden at a time and place to be announced.

According to a book "Passages of the Planters", there is a record of a Captain William Traske
as a passanger upon the ship "The Sea Lion" which departed Delft, Holland during June of
1624 to New England. According to the historians Will and Ariel Durant, in "The Age of
Exploration", Captain Traske and Woodbury, Connaut, Balch, and Palfrey (The Old Planters)
were confronted by Miles Standish and company while they were operating a fishing
station, at Cape Ann, Massachusetts, during the year 1624. This paved the way for the Salem
settlement. It is very likely that William Traske made several trans-Atlantic journies during
the 1620's. His arrival at Naumkeag in 1628 on the "Abigail" with Governor Endicott was
probably his last arrival to Massachusetts.

Captain Traske was pivotal in the formation of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He was
named one of the five "Old Planters" of the colony. The others being Peter Palfry, John
Balch, John Woodberry and Roger Conant. These men were all settlers before Endicott's
arrival, and hence were called "Old Planters".

The Bay Colony's original company organizations are slightly vague, since the men of the
colony trained and carried out guard duty from the day the ships anchored. Salem dates
from 17 April 1629 under Captain John Endecott. This date is based on the letter of general
instructions. By 1634 Endecott had been succeeded as company commander by Captain
William Trask. (Ref. Records Mass., 1:386-98, 85, 93, 95, 120; Johnson, Wonder - Working, 19-
22; Shelley, Underhill, 133-4.)

The companies in the Bay proper, covering the 1630 settlements, are all 8 ruled to have an
organization date of 12 April 1631, based on the law requiring training passed by the
General Court. These companies were: Captain John Underhill's (Boston and Roxbury);
Daniel Patrick's (Watertown, Medford and Newtown); Richard Southcot's (Dorchester); and
John Endecott's (Salem). Note that Underhill and Patrick had dual status as both company
commanders and as hired "technicians." By 1635 the force had grown to 800 or so men in at
least five companies: Underhill's (Boston); Patrick's (Newtown); CPT John Mason's
(Dorchester); CPT William Trask's (Salem) and CPT Nathanial Turner's (Saugus).

In December 1636, with the colony facing war with the Pequots, a regimental organization
was adopted for the colony's approximately 1,500 men. Under the overall command of the
Governor as "chiefe general!" three geographically-based permanent regiments were set up,
each commanded by a colonel and a lieutenant colonel, and each with a paid training officer
(mustermaster). All regiments and companies were directed by the General Court to hold
elections of officers prior to the next Court session and to report the results. Note that
these units predate by six years the regiments of England. The act to execute this
organization was passed on 13 December 1636 (ref. Records Mass. 1:186-187). The
organization of 13 December 1636 with the results of commissions issued on 9 March
1636/7 (ref. Records Mass. 1:186-187). Captain William Trask was part of the East Regiment
which is detailed as:
EAST REGIMENT (101st Egr Bn) COL John Endecott; LTC John Winthrop, Jr. Mustermaster CPT
William Trask Salem: CPT William Trask Saugus (renamed 1637 as Lynn): CPT Daniel Patrick
Ipswich: CPT Daniel Dennison Newbury: CPT John Spencer (NOTE: Missing is Marblehead
which had town status 1633)

On 25 January 1635 Captain William Trask (as well as Peter Palfry, John Balch, John
Woodberry and Roger Conant) was granted 200 acres of land (the whole being 124 rods by
about 1,290) as a gift for defeating the Pequot Indians. This land was situated at the head of
the North River near Peabody Square. Trask was also given two grants in the South Peabody
area including a l00-acre farm near Spring Pond. However, it was the grant that was near
what is now Peabody Square that was the most important. Trask and his descendants built
dwelling houses and at least four mills in this area by ca. 1660. In addition, Salem granted
several houselots in the same area. These grants represented the start of the village of
Brooksby, now Peabody. Peabody's first mill, a grist mill, was built in 1634 by Captain
William Trask near the old mil1 pond at Peabody Square. The pond is MHC Reconnaissance
Survey Town Report: Peabody 8 now filled but originally existed in the vicinity of where
Walks Street crosses the railroad tracks today. Some researchers Say this is the oldest mill
in America. By 1640 Trask built a second mill about 1/2 mile downstream from the first near
present Grove Street. This mill may have been a tidal mill. In ca. 1656 a samp mortar mill
replaced the original Trask grist mill on the pond near Peabody Square.

There is also reference to Captain Trask causing a bit of uproar in Salem. The trouble
erupted on a cold October day in 1634. Captain William Trask was drilling his train-band in
the fundamentals of military operations. Onlookers in Salem saw the men carrying the flag
of St. George proudly. The flag belonged to the king of England and was used by the Royal
Navy. The trouble was that it had been given to the king by the Pope as a talisman of
victory. John Endecott who had been the first governor of the settlement at Salem saw it
and was horrified. Endecott then cut the offending cross from the flag with his sword. The
men in power were worried, fearing the London authorities would consider Endecott’s
action a slap in the king’s face. An investigation was begun and the results were turned over
to the General Court. Endecott was “admonished” and banned from holding public office for
a year. He was then jailed. But Endecott was released the same day
after admitting his errors.

Described as "old school Baptist preacher" in family papers

Moses Greer Jr. was born on 12 May 1768 in Franklin County, VA. He died on 30 Sept 1848 in Franklin County, VA. He was buried in Gogginsville, Franklin County, VA. "Moses Greer settled in Franklin County. He was a Primitive Baptist minister, and baptized Thomas Bailey Greer (brother), Chattin D. Pollard (brother - in - law) and Theoderick F. Webb (sister - in - law's brother). ..... He was born, lived and died in Franklin County. He and his wife were buried at the old homestead near Gogginsville." (Pioneer Families of Franklin County, Virginia, 1935 by Marshall Wingfield, pages 86 and 87, as taken from "The Genealogy of the Greer Family" by Joseph Hampton Greer, pages 2, 3 and 4. His and his wife's birth and death dates and their children are listed.)

In 1832, Moses Greer, Jr., was a Justice of the Peace in Franklin County and stated at that time, that he had served several tours under Moses Greer, Senior, against the Tories." (GREAR - GREER - GREERE - GRIER, about 1954, by Robert M. Torrence, A.B., F.G.S.P., F.I.A.G; 110 Edgevale Road, Baltimore 10, Maryland, pages 24 - 25.)

He was married to Susannah Wood (daughter of Stephen Wood Sr. and Ann Smith) on 4 Nov 1794 in Franklin County, VA. Susannah Wood was born on 29 Nov 1776. She died on 29 Nov 1857 in Franklin County, VA. She was buried in Gogginsville, Franklin County, VA.

A deep mystery surrounds Jane, wife of Thomas. He married her in 1640, but the written record by Matthew Grant gives only
the name Jane or Joan. Two of Thomas's sons married COGGIN ladies, but there is little sign that Jane was a Coggin, as some have
suggested. One report (LDS record) has it that Jane COGGIN, b Bedfordshire ENG 1619 was daughter of John COGGIN, b in
Bedford, Bedfordshire about 1593.

It has also been suggested that Thomas BARBER married Jane BANCROFT, widow of John BANCROFT who died in 1637. Jane
Bancroft had ties to Windsor thru her daughter Anna, b 1627, who married 1647 John GRIFFIN of Windsor and Simsbury, and her
son John, born about 1620, who married in 1650 Hannah DUPPER and had a family in Windsor. But Jane BONYTHON who married
John BANCROFT was born in 1573, and would have been way too old to have borne Thomas BARBER’s children. This theory
against the wife being Jane Bancroft was written up in The American Genealogist, Vol 37, p 164, in 1961 by George E McCracken and
more or less disproved at that time. He points out that she would have had to have borne children for too long a time span - highly
unlikely, and also she would have had 2 sons named John and 2 named Thomas - also unlikely. Another account has John
BANCROFT born about 1596, died 1637, m. Jane about 1622. That would have meant she was born about 1606 or before, making
her about 47 in 1653 when Thomas’s youngest child Josiah Barber was born - not impossible, but very unlikely.

It has been said by some that Thomas may have married the daughter of one of the Dutch traders at Old Saybrook, or Hartford,
and also that the one he married was “the first white woman to land in Connecticut”.

One of Francis STILES' sisters was named Jane, born 1605. She married in England and presumably remained there. There
was a Jane MORDEN or WORDEN, age 35 (in 1635), on the passenger list of the Christian; however I know nothing further about
her. It seems she was too old to have borne all of Thomas's children.

There seems as yet no way of knowing who Jane was (an all too frequent problem in genealogy). [~ Windsor Hist Soc:Jay Mack

GOVERNOR ROGER CONANT, son of Richard and Agnes (Clarke) Conant, was born at East Budleigh, Devonshire, England, in 1591, baptized there, 9 August, 1597, and died at Beverly, Massachusetts, 19 November, 1679. Although nothing is known of his early life, he was evidently well educated, as he was in later life called upon to survey lands and lay out boundaries; his elder brothers were graduates of Oxford. A document signed by him as "Salter of London" furnishes strong presumptive evidence that he was a member of the Salters' Company, and had served his apprenticeship in that city, under his brother Christopher, who was a London Salter. The knowledge thus obtained was of much value to him in establishing the " Salting and Fishing Stages" in New England. He emigrated to Plymouth in 1623, probably in the " Ann," which arrived at Plymouth about July of that year. It is known that his brother Christopher arrived by that ship, and he, Roger, states in a petition to the General Court, dated 28 May, 1671, he had been "a planter in New England forty-eight years and upwards," which would fix the date of his arrival early in 1623. Not being a Separatist, he was not in harmony with the Plymouth Colony, and shortly after his arrival he made a settlement at Nantasket (Hull). Here he used the form of service of the Established Church, which was always preferred by him for personal use, though abandoned by the church after the fall of the Brownists in 1629. In this, as in many other cases, he relinquished his personal feelings for what appeared to be the good of the State, and his pacific disposition averted many troubles in the colony.
