Family History [photocopy of hand-written account by Cora Belle Campbell 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.

Marriage record shows both were 21, both from Millbury, and both born in England. They were married at St. John's Episcopal Church, Sutton, by the Rev. Benj. H. Chase, rector. Following is a brief history of this church:

The village of Wilkinsonville, the section of Sutton in which the church is situated, was named for mill owner David Wilkinson. He also owned the bank, several houses and the Rising Sun Hotel, where the first Episcopal services in Wilkinsonville took place on June 17, 1825.

The Parish, called the Society of Saint John's, was incorporated on March 10, 1827. Reverend David LeBaron Goodwin, only 25 years of age, presided. Mr. Wilkinson gave $1,000 with which to build the church, and provided a house for the rector and his wife. On June 24, 1828 the cornerstone of the new building was laid. A silver plate was placed in the cornerstone with the church staff names engraved upon it. The church held its first service less than a year later on June 5, 1829. The impressive Ceremony of Consecration was performed by the Venerable Bishop Griswold. Rev. Goodwin remained until 1854 and, during his stay, baptized 257 persons and presented 139 to Bishop Griswold for confirmation. []

Moses Greer Sr. was born on 2 Jun 1744 in Gunpowder River, Baltimore County, Maryland. He died on 10 May 1834 in Franklin County, Virginia. "A letter from the Veterans Administration, Washington, D.C., dated April 9, 1938, gives a great deal of information and it is quoted: "Pension Claim File S-8609, Certificate # 2896 issued December 8, 1832; rate $ 460.00 per annum; commenced March 4, 1831; Virginia Agency. Moses Greer was born in the state of Maryland, June 2, 1744. While residing in Bedford County (that part later called Franklin County), Moses Greer was Captain of Militia, and in 1779, served six months under Colonel James Callaway, stationed at the lead mines in Grayson County, VA. He was commissioned, October 28, 1780, Lieutenant in Virginia troops; served two tours of three months each. Also other tours in Colonel Charles Lynch's and Colonel William Leftwich's Virginia Regiments and was on the march to Yorktown when the British surrendered. His entire service amounted to two years. He was allowed a pension on Application September 12, 1832; then a resident of Franklin County and was referred to as Moses Greer, Sr. (Copy of this pension application in ROYAL HERITAGE OF THE GREERS by Carolyn Beal, pages 137 - 138, which gives Moses age as 88 years in 1832.) After the Revolution, he elected to the State Legislature from Franklin County and at the time of his application, was Presiding Judge of same county. He died May 10, 1843 (sic - apparently Torrence reversed the date, which should have been 1834), leaving children. 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."

"Moses Greer had 40 acres of land in Franklin County, Virginia. On November 10, 1792, this land was to be divided and laid out into town lots to be called "Wisenberg"." (HENNING'S STATUTES, Vol. 13, pages 505 and 586.)

"Moses Greer was a surveyor, farmer and business man. In politics, he was a Jeffersonian Republican, and as such was elected a delegate from Franklin County to the Convention of the Legislature of Virginia which met in Richmond, before the 1800 election. His son, William Greer, kept up a family Bible which is now in possession of Mr. John W. Greer, of Kingston Spring, TN, and from this Bible data for this family is derived. He married prior to 1775, Ann Nancy Bailey, born on Gunpowder River, Baltimore County, Maryland, November 30, 1743. As a matter of passing interest, there is a record in York County, PA, showing that John Bailey, of Baltimore, married January 16, 1812, Miss Hanna Greer, of York. This shows that the York and Baltimore members of the family did intermarry." (GREAR - GREER - GREERE - GRIER by Robert M. Torrence, A.B., F.G.S.P., F.I.A.G; 110 Edgevale Road, Baltimore 10, Maryland, pages 24 - 25.)

Information about the family and descendants of Moses Greer has been recorded in PIONEER FAMILIES OF FRANKLIN COUNTY, VIRGINIA, 1935 by Marshall Wingfield, page 86; DAR Abstracts (369.1 D26L), Vol. 119, page 28; DAR Records #68406; and research notes of L. L. McNees of Ebenezer, Mississippi; GREER KINSMEN by J. B. Bell; and notes of Mrs. Cabel Smith, Rocky Mount, VA and Edna Greer Hatfield.

"Correction on death date to February 4, 1834 in DAR Patriot Index, Sup. #3." (ROYAL HERITAGE OF THE GREERS, 1982, by Carolyn Beal, page 133.)

(NOTE FROM RALPH TERRY: Some researchers, including Richard L. Greer of Marion, VA, show this Moses Greer to have been a son of Moses Greer, born about 1712. This appears to be incorrect, as shown by other researchers, cited above. Moses' (born in 1812) son, Moses, was born in 1755, according to St. John's Parish Records. This Moses, son of William, was born in 1844, according to his pension records.)

He was married to Ann Nancy Bailey (daughter of Thomas Bailey and Ann) in Jan 1765 in Baltimore, Baltimore County, Maryland. Ann Nancy Bailey was born on 30 Nov 1748 in Gunpowder River, Baltimore County, Maryland. She died on 8 Aug 1827 in Franklin County, VA.

From Marshall Wingfield, "Pioneer Families" pg. 87:
"Moses Greer, Sr., born in Maryland, June 2, 1744, married Nancy Bailey, daughter of Thomas Bailey of Prince George County, and settled in Franklin County; was representative of Franklin County in the Virginia legislature for several terms; was surveyor and farmer; died in Franklin County, May 10, 1834. This Moses Greer is designated Moses Greer Sr., by the Greer family and is the progenitor of the Franklin County family. He was one of the first three Justices of the County Court, and in 1832 he was presiding Justice. He served as a Captain in the War of the Revolution."

"John Hampton Greer states: "at the outbreak of the Revolutionary War, William Greer and his four oldest sons, having taken the oath of allegiance to the King of England, remained neutral. All sons of Moses Greer Sr., who were born or who became of age in the United States went into the Revolutionary Army of America. Shadrack, one of the eldest sons, went into the British Army and was afterwards disowned by his younger brothers."

(by Faryl Fleming)

Our first known ancestors originally lived in the Bern territory of Switzerland in Schwartzenburg, and later lived in the Rhine Palatinate in the Zweibrucken Territory of Germany. Zweibrucken is close to the Saar District in the southern part of Germany near the French border. The largest town in the area is the city of Zweibrucken. Zwei meaning two, and brucken meaning bridges. other small villages in the vicinity of the town are designated as being in the Zweibrucken Territory which is similar to our saying a town is in a certain county or township. I knew very little about Germany when I first started tracing my own ancestors but with the help of my neighbor, who came from Germany at age 13, I have learned a few things which could be helpful to others in understanding the use of some of the names and phrases used in this book.

There are several villages in Germany that have the same name. If they happen to be close together the name is usually preceded by the word Ober, meaning upper or Mittel (middle), or Unter (under) and sometimes Neider (lower). I was somewhat confused by the two words unter and neider until my neighbor told me that "neider was lower than under". The villages of Auerbach, where our own immigrant ancestor's family lived, are good examples of these designations. The name Auerbach is derived from the two words Auer, meaning pheasant, and bach, meaning brook. On an old map of Germany I found Oberauerbach, Mittelauerbach, Unterauerbach and Neiderauerbach strung out along one of the two streams which curve around Zweibrucken. All within just a few kilometers of each other. It was in this area that the church records of our ancestors were found. They belonged to the Reformed Protestant Church which is an offshoot of the Lutheran Church formed by a group of dissenters who disagreed with some of the beliefs of Martin Luther.

The Palatine area was the scene of the so called Thirty Years War. A war of politics, economy and religion which actually lasted over a period of almost 50 years instead of 30. The religious aspect of the war was a struggle between the Catholics, Lutherans, and Calvinists for power. And the greatest cause of immigration from the Palatine areas was the law which allowed each ruler of each small Province to impose his own religious beliefs on his subjects. A change in rulers, because of death or defeat in battle, forced everyone to change their religious affiliation to conform with that of the new ruler, or, to undergo severe penalties which included confiscation of their property, torture, and sometimes death. The minority religions, Mennonite, Amish, Anabaptists, and the Reformed Protestants were the ones who suffered the most for their beliefs. This caused a wave of migration to Holland and from there to England.

England gave sanctuary to thousands of these refugees until conditions became so crowded she started a campaign to induce people to go to America and settle in the Colonies. Some of these people had the money to pay for their passage, others bound themselves for as long as seven years as bond servants to pay for their passage. often this was all they received for the seven years work other than their food and lodging. Occasionally they were given a new outfit of clothing at the end of their term, depending on the whim of their masters. Many families landed at New York or Baltimore, Maryland, most came to Philadelphia and settled in PA., Because of the way the Colonists produced the word "Deutsch", which means German, the Germans in PA became known as "PA Dutch".

In my research I encountered many words, phrases, and customs which puzzled me and I find that many people are still confused by them. Having since learned the meaning I am listing the most common ones here for the benefit of those who are tracing German ancestors. The German language uses many abbreviations in their writing and those are also listed. The custom which seems to bother most new researchers is the use of the two letters "en" or "in" at the end of a name which denotes the female gender. Our name was spelled Hochstattler in Germany. When written that way it denotes the male of the family. Hochstattleren means it is a female. Sometimes the American clerks used the letters "in". The name Hochstattler is derived from the two words "hoch". meaning high, and "statt" meaning place. The "ler" ending is "he" or "that person". The entire name means "he who is from a high place", or from the mountains. The "att" in the name has two small dots over it denoting a short sound almost like "eh" . The "ch" has a soft sound almost like an f, which is why our name eventually became Hofstatler, then Huffstetler or Huffstutler and even later Hufstedler. 
Hochstattler, Christian (I1536)
Samuel Wood Greer was born on 7 Aug..... 1797 in Franklin County, VA. He died on 4 Dec 1881 in Monroe County, MO. He was buried in near Paris, Monroe County, MO. "On the 11th day of September 1838, Samuel W. Greer and his family left Franklin County, VA in the company with Webbs, Pollards, and others numbering nearly a hundred "whites and blacks" drove over the Allegheny Mountains, through TN and Kentucky, crossing the Ohio River at what was then called Parker's Ferry into Gallatin County, IL, crossing the Mississippi River at Alton, landed in Monroe County, MO, on the 31st day of October 1838, coming all the way in wagons. Samuel Wood Greer lived in Monroe County, MO until his death, which occurred December 4, 1851. He made several trips back to Virginia, and on one of these trips back to Virginia in the year 1860 married his second wife, Nancy Divers, a daughter of Aquilla Divers, who was a son of Rebecca Greer Divers. After the death of Samuel Wood Greer, this second wife went back to Virginia (Franklin County) and married an Old School Baptist preacher named George W. Kelly. Samuel Wood Greer and Frances Dogged (Pollard) Greer are buried on the old Lee Willis farm, about seven miles southwest of Paris, Monroe County, MO." (John Franklin Greer's Record, pages 3 and 4.)

The 1855 Massachusetts census shows John Jr., age 10, was born in England and Mary E. was born in Massachusetts, September 1848. Brierly family tree says he arrived in Boston. 
Brierly, John (I4014)
[From Genealogical and Personal Memoirs of Worcester County Massachusetts, Vol. 2]

Mr. Stone purchased of Gamaliel Wallis, of Boston, ten acres of land situated, according to the deed, in the southwesterly part of Worcester, bounded on the west by the town line of Leicester, every other way by the land of Thomas Holmes and common land. On this ten acre lot there was a house. He also purchased other land amounting to more than one hundred fifty acres, located near his first purchase. In 1757, Mr. Stone with others petitioned to have their estates set off from Leicester to Worcester; all parties consenting, even the General Court, the prayer of the petition was granted.

Although he had been a resident of Worcester since 1752, the change made transferring all his estate within the lines of Worcester caused him to become more active in all matters relating to the welfare of the town serving on many important committees, notably during the period covered by the war of the revolution, the committee for giving instruction to the town's representatives to the General Court, committee for schools, for instruction, correspondence, selectmen, overseer of the poor, and for getting the town's cannon out of Boston, 1774. He not only assisted in conducting public affairs, but with arms and ammunition in hand marched on the roth (sic) of April as private in Captain Timothy Bigelow's company on the Lexington alarm, and was corporal in Captain Hubbard's company, Colonel Ward's regiment, April 24, 1775, to August 1, 1775.

In 1778 the portion of Worcester in which stood Mr. Stone's residence was set off to Ward, afterwards called Auburn. He died there December 1, 1806.

Henry Waterman Warren, B.A. 1865
Born March 18, 1838, in Auburn, Mass.
Died February 21, 1919, in Holden, Mass.

Henry Waterman Warren, son of Waterman Goulding and Mary (Eddy) Warren, was born in Auburn, Mass., on March 18, 1838. Through his father, whose parents were Deacon Samuel Warren and Sally (Goulding) Warren, he was descended from John Warren, who came from Nayland, England, to Boston with Governor Winthrop in 1630. His mother was the daughter of Samuel and Lydia (Hart) Eddy. She was descended from Rev. William Eddy, of Crainbrook, Kent, England, who came to Plymouth in 1630.

After attending the public school of Holden, Mass., Worcester Academy, the State Normal School at Westfield, Mass., and Williston Seminary, he entered the Sophomore class at Yale in 1862. He received oration appointments and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

His first work after graduation was teaching in the public schools of Nashville, Tenn., but in the spring of 1866, with his brother, Berthier Warren, he purchased a plantation in Leake County, Miss., and there engaged in cotton planting. He remained in the South for ten years and during this period he took an active part in reconstruction. He served as chairman of the Board of Registration for Leake County under the Reconstruction Acts of Congress, and, in 1867, was appointed probate judge of the county. In that year he was also elected a member of the Constitutional Convention of the State. From 1870 to 1875 he was connected with the State Legislature, as chief clerk, member, or speaker of the House of Representatives. In 1873 he was appointed levee commissioner. in 1874, declining an appointment as chancellor for the Tenth Chancery District of the state, he accepted one as centennial commissioner, and on March 27, 1876, was appointed a member of the Centennial Board of Managers for the state. He was a delegate to two presidential Conventions: in 1868, at Chicago, when General Grant was first nominated; and in 1876, at Cincinnati, when Rutherford B. Hayes was nominated.

In 1876 he returned to Holden, Mass., and actively engaged in the tanning business which four generations of his ancestors had carried on, and which at that time bore the firm name of W. G. Warren's Sons. He served for nine years as town treasurer, for seven years as member of the Board of Selectmen, and for two years as water commissioner, and in 1890 was elected to the Board of Overseers. In 1882 and 1885 he represented his district in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. He became president of the Worcester & Holden Street Railway in 1905 and served in that capacity for three years.

Mr. Warren died of heart failure on February 21, 1919, at his home in Holden, after a brief illness. The interment was in Grove Cemetery in Holden.

On November 8, 1877, he married Dora Louise, daughter of William and Mary Ann (Jefferson) Howe, who survives him with four children: William Howe (B.A. 1901); Blanche Louise (B.A. Smith 1904), who married Rev. Alfred E. Alton; Helen Goulding (B.A. Smith 1906); and Waterman Goulding (B.A. Dartmouth 1913).

Warren, Henry Waterman (I70)
[From Alma Campbell's letter]
...the restless pioneer spirit soon drove him westward, and his journey ended at Wilmington Illinois, a thriving country town. Here he met and married Hannah Elizabeth Pennington, a girl of nineteen, who was a helpmeet indeed, and whose alert mind and ready sympathies shared his ideals and aspirations and rejoiced in his achievements...

...On June 16, 1869, she married Merritt Bates Campbell. The day was ushered in by a heavy frost, following several weeks of warm weather, and stoves were brought out and set up for the occasion. The wedding trip of this young couple took them as far as Bloomington and Springfield where they were caught in a heavy rain and father went to purchase an umbrella. Although characterized all his later life by extremely good and accurate taste, he was in his youth slightly color blind, and returned not with the green umbrella, which was wanted, but a beautiful blue one. And for the three days of their honeymoon they plodded around under this brilliant canopy.

Their first meal in their own home was spread on a little drop leaf table, one of the pieces that father purchased at "secondhand" when he furnished the one room in which he slept and doctored his patients for three years.

Family F15
[From Alma Campbell's letter]
At the age of sixteen young Merritt was teaching school in a small town in Vermont, and spending all his spare time reading books borrowed from the old village doctor, this good man thought at first to forever discourage the young scientist, and started him with a long and dull treatise on the brain. But the youth was not to be discouraged, and after returning the book, and proving that he knew enough to talk about it, became an object of interest and was rewarded with more interesting ones, and many pleasant conversations. At nineteen he entered Harvard medical school and after one course of lectures became a medical cadet, and served for the remaining years of the Civil War in a base hospital near Boston. After finishing his medical course of two years, and receiving his diploma from Harvard, he became assistant to a practicing physician, but the restless pioneer spirit soon drove him westward, and his journey ended at Wilmington Illinois, a thriving country town. 
Campbell, Dr. Merritt Bates (I61)
[From Alma Campbell's letter]
In 1873, the family moved a few miles north to the rapidly growing little city of Joliet where for fifteen years, in addition to his general practice, he was physician at the state penitentiary. Observations in this institution led to his first research work, he became much interested in the subject of crime, its cause and cure, and was led to believe that the primal cause was alcohol. He was an intense worker, both physical and mental, and felt that his health and strength were equal to any strain. During this period he sometimes kept at his work three days and nights without sleep. 
Campbell, Dr. Merritt Bates (I61)
[From Alma Campbell's letter]
In January, 1908, father had a very serious attack of pneumonia and although he got up from this, and with his usual energy attended to his business and did a good deal of manual work, he was never well again or free from pain. The previous year he had acquired some ranch land in the new and rapidly developing Imperial Valley and as soon as he was well enough, went down there, taking with him Walter Meack, the son of his cousin Laura. Cousin Laura lived with us during this time, about three months. After this summer father spent much of his time in Imperial Valley, his daughter Elizabeth (Aunt Bess) being with him most of the time. In the spring of 1911 father built a good bungalow on a fourteen-acre piece of land in the little town at Heber, where he died on December 1, 1911.
Campbell, Dr. Merritt Bates (I61)
[From Alma Campbell's letter]
In the later eighties father's health began to fail, great overwork, both physical and mental, with nervous strain began to tell, and he developed trouble which demanded less strenuous work for a time.

The winter of 1888-89 called for a visit to a warmer climate, and he and mother spent part of it in Mexico, where the accommodations were rather primitive, for tourist travel to Mexico was not developed very much at that time.

The following fall father came to California by way of Panama, traveling across the isthmus on a little railway. His health greatly improved, he and mother came the following winter, at which time they bought the first orange grove set out in the San Gabriel valley, with trees brought from Italy by the owner Mr. Loop. This was near Claremont. The location was chosen because of the educational advantages offered by Pomona College, which was just started and had at that time only a preparatory school. Each year a college year was added and the first class was graduated in 1894.

In the summer of 1891 the family moved to Claremont and took up their residence on the old ranch. During that year father bought and planted more land so that at one time he had nearly eighty acres of citrus trees.

[From Alma Campbell's letter]
Mother died at Patton on October 31, 1902, of pneumonia after an illness of one week. Two years later the family moved to Los Angeles where father bought a house at 1608 Orange Street now Wilshire Boulevard. Father was in practice there for four years. 
Campbell, Dr. Merritt Bates (I61)
[From Alma Campbell's letter]
The following year however, he was appointed superintendent of the state hospital at Patton, which was then under construction. He held this position for twelve years, resigning in 1904. The family home was maintained on the ranch until 1902 and during this time from one to three children were always in preparatory school or college. Aunt Elizabeth Campbell, father's sister, lived with us on the ranch from 1895 or '96 until we moved at which time she went to live in Los Angeles. A house was built for the superintendent of the hospital that year and the home was moved to Patton in the spring. For the preceding ten years mother spent most of her time on the ranch but made frequent visits to Patton. Father, on the other hand, spent one day a week at home. During these years he worked hard and was confined closely.

[From "Patton Remembered," pg. ii]
A patchwork of six parcels of land totaling 360 acres and edging toward the foothills north of San Bernardino was selected in the spring of 1890 as the site for the fourth of California's mental hospitals, the Southern California Asylum for the Insane... [later the facility] was named the Southern California State Asylum for the Insane and Inebriates... The first building was completed in 1893. The asylum was declared open on August 1st and received first inmates on August 2nd. Dr. M. B. Campbell was the Medical Director.

Your grandfather, Merritt Bates Campbell was born at Williston, Vermont, November 29, 1843, the eldest of four children. He grew up in a Methodist parsonage, and was trained in the finest of New England culture and tradition. His heritage was not that of material wealth, but of the highest manners, morals and ethics. Plain living with high thinking was the precept and practice of this household.

GOODHUE FAMILY. The earliest date to which the Goodhue family has been traced in England, whence the progenitor of the American family came, is 1280. William and Robert Goodhue (Gudhewen) lived in county Kent at that time. While it seems impossible to find the line of descent there is good reason to believe that William Goodhue, the American progenitor, belonged to the family in Kent where nearly all of this name have lived in England for a period of six centuries. The name is spelled usually Goodhugh or Goodhew by the branches of the family in England. A coat of arms is described as follows: "Or on a chevron between three Griffins' heads, erased Gules, a swan's neck, also erased, ducally gorged gold; on each side of the field a Bee volant. Crest, a young shepherd leaning on the stump of a tree playing the flute, his dog by his side. Motto: Dieu avec Nous. Later arms have been granted since the family came to America to the English branches.

(I) William Goodhue, the immigrant ancestor of all of this surname in America, was born in England, 1612-3. In 1635 or 1636, then twenty-four years old, he came to New England and settled at Ipswich. Massachusetts. He was chosen deacon of the church. By history he is declared to have been a man of more than ordinary intelligence, of deep practical piety and of the highest integrity and wisdom. For many years he served the town of Ipswich in various civil capacities such as moderator, selectman, representative to the general court. He died in 1609. He took the freeman's oath December 7, 1636. He had numerous grants of land in and after 1635. He was commoner in

He resided in Ipswich until advanced in years, when he gave up his farm there and went to live with his son William at Chebacco (now Essex), Massachusetts, where he died 1699-1700.

He married, in England, Margery Watson, of Kent, who died at Ipswich, August 28, 1668. He married (second) Mary Webb, widow, February 7, 1669-70. She died at Ipswich, September 7, 1680. He married (third) Bethiah Grafton, a widow, who died December 6, 1688. He married (fourth), 1689, Remember Fisk, of Wenham, who survived him and died at Ipswich, February 16, 1701-2.

Formerly Widely Known as Cattle Breeder; Liveryman 40 years.

Charles H. Campbell, 81, formerly well-known breeder of Jersey cattle and for 40 years liveryman and undertaker at West Rutland, died of pneumonia yesterday at his home there after two years of illness [sic] health. The funeral will be held at the Congregational church in West Rutland tomorrow morning [sic] at 2:30 o'clock with burial in Evergreen cemetery.

Mr. Campbell was for nearly half a century prominently identified with the civic and business life of West Rutland, retiring only when his health failed. He had a wide acquaintance among cattle fanciers and he raised the stock from which many herds of registered animals in this vicinity sprang. He was a frequent exhibitor at the Rutland fair.

Besides his livery business, Mr. Campbell operated a large skating rink in the years when roller skating was a popular sport.

He was a son of the late Rev. Alexander Campbell, born in Chesterfield, N. Y., September 28, 1816, who was one of the founders of the Rutland Methodist church in 1854 and was the first pastor after the society had a church edifice of its own.

Mr. Campbell is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Richard Smith of West Rutland, a son, Dr. K. A. Campbell of Hopedale, Mass., and three grand children. His wife died about five years ago.

Of Theodore the following was written in BRADFORD REPORTER, TOWANDA, PA, MAY 1, 1884, SPRINGFIELD CENTRE (Pennsylvania)  "We will close this letter by giving a brief notice of Springfield’s first and eminent physician, Dr. Theodore Wilder, a practitioner for over fifty years. Dr. Wilder was born in Chesterfield, N.Y., in 1805. He studied medicine with his father, Dr. William Wilder, and after having completed his studies, married and practiced for a short time in New York, then came to Springfield and took up his quarters with Esquire Mattocks. When the young doctor came in his worldly possessions consisting of a horse which he rode and his saddle-bags filled with medicines; and here in a wilderness among strangers who lived miles apart, he is going to build up a practice. He waited many weeks, but yet no patients came. Finally, when most discouraged, he was called upon to visit a gentleman who had been ill for some time, and whose disease baffled the skill of the several physicians who had been called, who at last gave him up to die. The young doctor, however, understood the case and soon had him on the road to health. This soon gave him a great name and his services were sought far and near. He rode on horseback in many cases, being guided only by marked trees, in visiting his patients. His practice, indeed, became very great, which he continued until within a few days prior to his death, which occurred at Springfield in 1882.  He was twice married.  For his second wife he married Miss Eliza L. Bailey, who yet survives him."

He was elected and commissioned a Justice of the Peace for Springfield in 1849.

85 John Greer was born between 1682 and 1688 in Gunpowder River, Baltimore County, Maryland. He died on 15 Sep 1750 in Baltimore County, Maryland. He was buried. "John Greer, as his name is spelled in all of his records, was born in Baltimore County in 1688, as will be proven, and was a planter at the same time speculated in lands to a considerable extent. His first land consisted of the 75 acres which he inherited from his parents; his purchases were from 1718 to 1720 and his sales were from 1714 to 1748. After 1748, his name is not found in Maryland records. In order to verify the above statements, that John Greer was the son of James Grear and his wife, Ann Taylor, and that John Greer was born in 1688, copies of Court Records will follow:

"BOOK T. R. #A, FOLIO 333, TRANSCRIBED FROM LIBER 15, FOLIO 296-71: "John Greer to Walter Bosley: This Indenture, 4 March 1714, John Greer, of Baltimore County, Maryland, planter, has received rent from and sells to Walter Bosley 75 acres, being part of Arthur's Choice in Baltimore County, on the South side of Gunpowder River, called Bird's Run, beginning at a red oak... (The entire description will not be copied, because it is exactly as shown in the original grant from Arthur Taylor to James and Ann Greer.) "Be it remembered that on 4 March 1714, came Ann Harriott, mother of said Greer and Sarah, his wife, both of whom being privately examined by Luke Raven, Gent., one of the Justices of the City Court of Baltimore County, acknowledged all their rights of Dower to the within mentioned, bargained and sold land and improvements on the premises of the said John Grear, likewise acknowledged in open Court, according to the Act of Assembly. Signed John Stokes."

"BALTIMORE COURT PROCEEDINGS - LAND COMMISSION, LIBER H.W.S. NO. 2, FOLIO 144, 1732 DEPOSITIONS: "John Greer testified of having been informed, some fourteen or fifteen years before, by his uncle, John Taylor, then Deputy Surveyor, that the beginning tree of Heathcoat's cottage was a bounded poplar tree which stood at the head of the first draft above Nicholas Day's plantation, near to an Indian cabin and that at some small distance from the place where the deponent now stands, being a bounded poplar tree standing near the head of a great drain on the third branch on the North side of the main falls of the Gunpowder River, there appeared to have been formerly made an Indian cabin." (This again confirms that John Grear's mother was Ann Taylor, since her brother, John Taylor was his uncle.)

"MARYLAND HISTORY MAGAZINE, Volume 18, page 21: "In 1738, John Greer deposed that he had been bitten by a rattlesnake in the woods about 30 perches above the mouth of the Long Green River and further, that he was 50 years old at that time." This places his birth as in 1688.

"BALTIMORE COURT PROCEEDINGS - LAND COMMISSION, LIBER W.B.M. VOLUME 16, FOLIO 147: "July 25, 1743, before the Land Commission held to determine the bounds of a tract called, Thompson's Tott, laid out for George Thompson. That thirty years ago, or there about, Mr. John Taylor, who then lived on the South side of Gunpowder River near the ferry and afterward went to Carolina, and if now living is seventy-eight, the said John Taylor shewed this deponent a bounded black and red oak which this deponent now sheweth unto us, fairly bounded by three trees... the aforesaid oak stands on the East side of a swampy stream descending into Momigold Run, now called Honeygo Run." (This is given to establish the birth date of John Taylor, as 1665.)

"ANN ARUNDEL & BALTIMORE COUNTIES - RENT ROLLS NO 1, FOLIO 230: "Greers park, 100 acres, rent 4 shillings, surveyed to John Greer, 3 February 1718, lying on the Great Falls of Gunpowder River in Baltimore County, patented to said Greer, 6 March 1732, Certificate A.M., #1, folio 213, Patent P.L. #8, folio 802. These same 100 acres were transferred to Mark Guishard, 5 April 1748, by John Greer and his wife, Sarah, did not join in the Deed. (T.B. #E., folio 715.)"

"ANN ARUNDEL & BALTIMORE COUNTIES - RENT ROLL NO. 1, FOLIO 259: "Greers Improvement, 58 acres, rent 2 shillings, 6 pence, surveyed for John Greer, 24 January 1720, lying on North side of Main Falls of Gunpowder River.

Patented to Thomas Greer, Liber E.L. #4, folio 410. John Greer transferred these 92 acres to Mark Guishard 2 March 1747, wife did not join in Deed. It is here assumed that Sarah Greer died following the birth of her twin sons, Benjamin and Joseph Greer, born 6 January 1727.

"Consulted Maryland records fail to disclose Wills for either John Greer or his wife, Sarah, so the names of their children have had to (be) established through records to be quoted in each case. Before listing their names, because this is a controversial question, the following references are given:

"SCOTCH - IRISH SETTLEMENT IN VIRGINIA, (AUGUSTA COUNTY RECORDS, page 275) VOLUME 3, page 18, by Lyman C. Chalkley.: "15 September 1750 - John Greer's Noncupative Will: Debts to be paid to William Long, William Neil, John Kennedy and Nathaniel Patterson; son, Alexander, to be bound to a trade; one child to be bound to John Mitchell; one child to be bound to S. D. (sic, evidently Samuel Doak); oldest girl to go to some decent woman to learn housewifery." Executors: John Mitchell and Samuel Doak. Teste: James Corwin, John Mitchell, Samuel Doak, Francis Beatey." IBID. VOLUME 3, PAGE 446: "22 September 1750, John Greer's Vendue: Sold to John Lockhart, John Roseman, Sarah Lynn, John Teat, John Mitchell, Chilpa Kelley, George Buckingham, Thomas Scott, Jane Lynn, Thomas Teat and Francis Beatey. John New." IBID. PAGE 26 (AUGUSTA COUNTY RECORD, page 447): "24 August 1752, John Mitchell and Samuel Doage (sic.) gave bond as guardians appointed for Rebecca, Alexander, Martha and Mary Greer, orphan children of John Greer, deceased, with Surety, Francis Beatey." IBID. VOLUME 1, PAGE 66 (AUGUSTA COUNTY ORDER BOOK, NO. 4, PAGE 331.): "Samuel Doak and John Mitchell, guardians for the orphan children of John Greer, made final settlement, 22 November 1754."

"It is not known upon what date John Greer went to Virginia, presumably to be nearer his older children. While proof is lacking, it is thought the documents, above quoted, apply to the John Greer, born in Baltimore County, Maryland in 1688, who must have married again, some time after the death of his first wife, Sarah, assumed to have died after January 1727, and by his second marriage became the father of four additional children: Rebecca, Alexander, Martha and Mary Greer. His second wife must have predeceased him, since her name was not mentioned in his Will and his children were spoken of as orphans. The fact that his estate was settled 22 November 1754, it is obvious that his youngest child, Mary, had reached maturity, 18 for a daughter, or at marriage, at or before that date. Accordingly, her birth date would be about 1736; Martha in 1734; Alexander in 1732 and Rebecca in 1730, close to three years after the death of Sarah, his first wife. It must be remembered that in Augusta County, VA, at that time, there many others by name of Greer, such as those from Andrew Greer to TN and others from The Carolinas. It is very difficult to segregate them, John Greer, born in 1688, would have been but sixty-two years old at his death, in 1750. This sketch is based on the above conclusion and will credit John Greer with children, thirteen: Their names will follow:" [children and descendants listed.] (GREGOR, MacGREGOR, MacGHEE, MAGRUDER, GRIERSON, GRIER, GREER --- A HISTORY OF THE ORIGIN OF THE ABOVE FAMILIES AND MANY OF THEIR DESCENDANTS, 1954, compiled by Robert M.

"Many compilations on the Greer family show Sarah (Day) Greer's death date from 1742 to 1747. This date seems to have been based on Sarah not signing any deed releases during 1747 and 1748. However, a logical scenario could be as follows: According to the vestry books, in Baltimore County, "John Greer was admonished for co-habitating unlawfully with one Chloe Jones (not dated)."" (ROYAL HERITAGE OF THE GREERS by Carolina Beal, 1985, page 33.) (NOTE FROM RALPH TERRY: Sarah, John's wife, apparently, separated from him and went to live with her son, Aquilla at the Chilimara Plantation (as seen by a land lease record found under Aquilla Greer). John was still in Baltimore County, Maryland where he had four additional children, possibly by Chloe Jones. John later moved to Augusta County, VA. His last four children were possibly born out of wedlock, as they were not accepted by John's older children and were bound out to pay John's debts after his death. As some sources show Obadiah Pritchett to be Sarah's second husband, rather than her first husband, she could have married him after separating from John.)

He was married to Sarah Day (daughter of Nicholas Day and Sarah Lowe) on 4 Mar 1704 in St John's Parish, Joppa, Baltimore County, Maryland. Sarah Day was born about 1686 in Baltimore County, Maryland. She died about 1758 in Baltimore County, Maryland.

The mills built by Asa and Ira Broad, later passed into the the hands of William Howe and Martin V. B. Jefferson, and from 1871 to 1877 were run by the firm of Howe, Jefferson & Austin. Waldo E. Austin, the junior partner, then bought out the interests of Messrs. Howe and Jefferson, and has continued the business to the present time. He uses the mills as a basis for his business as a contractor and builder, preparing builders' finish, and also does mill work, especially repairs of fulling mills and dye vats. He also fills orders for custom work, and carries on a general lumber business. The first tannery in town was about half a mile west of the Center, at the foot of "Landlord Davis'" hill. The exact date of its construction is not known. December 23d, 1789, the tannery, together with seventeen acres of land, was sold by John Watson to Heman Richardson. He was succeeded in the management by his son, Edward Richardson, from whom the tannery took the name by which it was often called. There was for many years a small tan yard on the Hall place in the south part of the town. In 1825 John P. Maynard built a tannery at Eagleville, across the road from the present site of the Holden Mills. In 1840 this tannery passed into the hands of the brothers Waterman G. and Samuel Warren, who carried on the business in partnership for ten years. Samuel Warren continued the business at Eagleville for about five years longer. W. G. Warren, in the spring of 1850, purchased the Richardson tannery, and carried on the tanning business there until 1882; till 1867 alone, for the last fifteen years in company with his son Samuel. In 1874, W. G. Warren, in partnership with his sons, Berthier and Henry W., under the firm name of B. & H. W. Warren & Co., erected the brick tannery at the Center, which furnishes facilities for turning out its specialty, card leather, that are unsurpassed, if indeed equalled, anywhere else in the state of Massachusetts. In 1881, Samuel Warren became a partner, and the firm name was changed to W. G. Warren & Sons. Since the death of the father in 1886, the business has been continued by the surviving partners under the style of W. G. Warren's Sons. In

(pg. 203) 1887 the two tanneries then in operation, with a capital of $3,500, employed four hands, and tanned one thousand and eighty-five hides, the value of the leather being estimated at $5,300. The tannery of W. G. Warren's Sons now employs sixteen hands, and there has been a corresponding increase in the number of hides tanned.
