101 "George Williams, a Welsh Quaker who signed the 1742 petition to divide Prince George's Parish, had no land surveyed or patented in the Frederick County area.He may even have lived a little south of the mouth of the Monocacy River. But he was associating with the Monocacy Quakers when his son Richard Williams was born in their area in 1726. The records of the New Garden Meeting of North Carolina on December 11, 1746 reported the marriage of Richard Williams to Prudence Beals, daughter of John Beals, 'of Monoquosy, Prince George's County in Maryland of Virginia."p. 84.

He probably settled in this area in 1704 when most of the grants were given.
From the book entitled "Colonial Families of the United States, Volume II" by George Norbury Mackenzie:George Williams, a Welsh Quaker (or Friend), arrived at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with a train of Quakers about the year 1690, and shortly afterwards settled in Prince George's (now Frederick) Co., Maryland, and died at Monocacy Creek, in that county, leaving a son, Richard Williams.

122 "In 1828, John Elliott became a citizen of Paris. He was born in Mary-
land, and previous to his settlement here had lived in Belmont and Adams
Counties, and had married Hannah Westlake.

Within a few years after he came, he was the owner of a farm of 200 acres in the northwestern part of the township, where he passed the remainder of his life. In earlier life, he was an ardent Methodist, but he afterward was one of the prime movers in the organization of the United Brethren Church. His politics were Democratic.

Mr. Elliott was twice married. By the first marriage he had two children, by
the last ten, many of whom still live in Paris Township.

126 "In 1918, Dode Lamson and Harry Page Maus constructed an organ for the Quilna Theatre in Lima [Ohio] and, based on its success, established the Page Organ Company in 1923. They eventually sold about one hundred instruments, perhaps half of them to theaters, many in Ohio, but one as far away as California's Catalina Island (where it still serenades patrons of the resort's one-thousand seat Art Deco movie palace) and others to radio stations in Chicago and Fort Wayne. Introduction of the talkies let to a downturn in the business, and destruction of the factory by fire in 1931 sealed the fate of the enterprise."

131 "Jacob, or Jakob as the Swiss record spells it, was born March 29, 1814. Jacob married Anna Stettler on March 17, 1842, the marriage record in Volume A, page 47, of Putnam County [Ohio] Marriage Records, says Feb. 17, 1842, although Walter Hochstettler gave us the date of March.

Anna was born Jan. 11, 1816, in Groz-Hoch-Statten, Canton Bern, Switzerland. She came to America with her father, and her brother, Christian, and two sisters, Elizabeth and Marianna, in 1833. They landed in New York and made their journey by water and foot, heading for Richland County, Ohio. They lived in Richland County until 1841 when they moved to Allen County, settling in Richland Township.

It is presumed that their mother died in Switzerland and that their father died in Richland County or maybe around Mt. Eaton in Wayne County. This information came from Walter Hochstettler, and he had been unable to verify it. He did say that Anna and her sisters were confirmed members of the Reformed Church in their village of Groz-Hoch-Statten in the Canton of Bern, before coming to America. If so, the records might be there and available to any family member who cared to write for them, since Swiss records are kept on a family basis for that time period.

143 "Jane, widow of John, granted a certificate to Rich Square MM, N.C. "where she now lives"; the certificate was placed in the hands of James Watkins to forward."

This suggests some relationship between Jane and James. Some suggest that Jane was his mother, but as she married John Watkins in 1754, she could not have been James' mother, unless my guess that he was born in 1744 is incorrect. Possibly John Watkins was an older brother of James.

144 "Jane, widow of John, Granted Certificate to Transfer to Rich Square, N.C. Monthly Meeting "where she now lives" [from Black Water, VA Monthly Meeting]; certificate place in the hands of James Watkins to forward."

Might this suggest that Jane was James' his sister-in-law?
