6101 The federal court in Boston ruled in the case In re Halladjian (174 F. 834) that Armenians were of the White race, and thus eligible to become naturalized citizens. Earlier, Jacob Halladjian and three other people were denied citizenship on grounds that they were "Asiatics".

6102 The first Friends minister of record to cross the Ohio River and preach in the limits of the Northwest Territory was Thomas Beals who was born in Chester County, Pennsylvania, in March 1719, the son of John and Sarah Bowater Beals. From John and Sarah descended a very large number of members of the now widely extended Yearly Meetings of Indiana, western, Iowa and Wilmington, as well as those west of the Mississippi River and to the Pacific coast. Among them are to be found a large number of outstanding ministers in the Society of Friends.

The Beals family moved from Pennsylvania and Maryland and later to Hopewell, near Winchester, Virginia. Thomas Beals moved with this family to North Carolina in 1748 or 1749 being then about twenty-nine years old, and first stopped at Cane Creek. Then, with his family, he moved to New Garden, North Carolina, which was frontier territory. In a very short time he was joined by some other families, and in the year 1753, being then about thirty-four years of age, he came forth in the ministry. How long he lived at New Garden we do not know but presume it was for several years. The next move he made was to Westfield, Surry County, North Carolina. Here he was instrumental in the development of a large meeting. He must have lived at New Garden and Westfield about thirty years, during which time he paid several lengthy visits to the Indians.

In the year 1775, twenty years before Wayne's Treaty with the Indians at Greenville, Ohio, Beals, accompanied by four Friends, started to pay a visit to the Shawnee Indians and some other tribes and, after passing a fort not far from Clinch Mountain in Virginia, they were arrested and carried back to the fort to be tried for their lives on the charge of being confederates with the hostile Indians. The officers, understanding that one of them was a preacher, required a sermon before they went in for trial. Beals thought it right to hold a meeting with the soldiers, which proved to be a highly favored season. A young man then in the fort was converted and, some time after, moved among Friends and became a member and, at a very advanced age, bore public testimony to the truth of the principles of which he was convinced at the fort. After this meeting was over the Friends were kindly entertained and were treed and at liberty to go on their journey. They crossed the Ohio River into what is now the state of Ohio and held many meetings with the Indians with satisfaction and returned home with much peace of mind. Thomas Beals told his friends that he saw with his spiritual eye the seed of Friends scattered all over that good land and that one day there would be the greatest gathering of Friends there of any place in the world and that his faith was strong in the belief that he would live to see Friends settle north of the Ohio River.

In 1781, Beals moved from Westfield, North Carolina, to Blue Stone, Giles County, Virginia, where he lived but a few years. While there, their sufferings were very great in many ways, not only from lack of the necessities of life, but their son-in-law, James Horton, was taken prisoner by the Indians and, from the most reliable information that could be obtained, was carried to old Chillicothe, near Frankfort, Ohio, and there put to death. This move to Blue Stone does not appear to have had the approval of Beals' friends, for Nathan Hunt states that they sent a committee to send him back to Westfield, North Carolina. The little meeting of twenty or thirty families was entirely broken up at Blue Stone.

In the year 1785, he moved to Lost Creek, Tennessee, and in 1793 he moved to Grayson County, Virginia, at which several places Nathan Hunt states that Thomas Beals set up meetings and says that he was very zealous for the support of the testimonies of Friends. In 1799, Beals, who had visited this country twenty four years before, now moved to Quaker Bottom, Ohio, along with other members of his family and in the spring of 1801 he moved to Salt Creek, near the present town of Adelphia.

On August 29, 1801, he died and was buried near Richmondale, Ross County, Ohio, in a coffin of regular shape, hollowed out of a solid white walnut tree by his ever faithful friend, Jesse Baldwin, and assisted by Enoch Cox and others, and covered by a part of the same tree, which was selected for the purpose by the deceased while living. The grave of Thomas Beals was recently Iodated and local Friends have erected an appropriate monument to his memory.

6110 The house in which the Wyburns lived is said to be the house north of the church, known since 1851 as the Manor House, owned and occupied by the Wyburn family after c 1840 but divided by 1909. The Manor House is said to date from the 16th century but has been much altered.

WYBURN, Walter Robert (I6119)
6111 The information about Susanna comes from two sources:

1. Alan Garnell, husband of a Wyburn descendant, Elizabeth Anne Wyburn Willett Garnell, writes that "Susannah Dicker's father was a John Dicker of Crockernwell, and that he kept a Posting House there. John Dicker married a Miss Codnor of Dartmouth..."

2. The transcription of the 1821 of the Population of Cheriton Bishop shows that the first name of John Dicker's wife was Susanna and that she was 46 at the time that the census was recorded in 1821 making her birth year about 1775.

6126 The month is a guess as it is very hard to read on the census record HILL, Edward (I10567)
6127 The most important early settlement in what is now Paris Township was made in 1817, by Abraham Amrine and his sons, in what is still known as the Amrine settlement, about two miles northwest of Marysville. So far as known, it was the first settlement made; assuredly the first permanent settlement. A few squatters may have preceded the Amrines, in the occupancy of the soil of this township, but if so, all traces of them are lost. The Amrine family still has in its possession a considerable quantity of the survey upon which the original settler of this name settled sixty-six years ago.

Abraham Amrine was born in Pennsylvania in the year 1761. His ancestors had emigrated to America from Switzerland about the beginning of the eighteenth century. In 1785, Mr. Amrine married Mary Wolford, and in 1801 removed from Pennsylvania. to near St. Clairsville, Belmont Co., Ohio. In 1817, he purchased from Samuel Davis, of Franklin County, the John Overton survey, of 750 2/3 acres, No. 4,066, which, however, contained nearly 1,000 acres, paying for if. $2 an acre. This was at that time a high price for wild land, but the survey was located on a bend of Mill Creek, and the rich bottom lands it contained enhanced its value above that of land less favorably situated. The same year he removed to it from Belmont County, with his Six sons - John, Andrew, Moses, Frederick, Jeremiah and Abraham, Jr.- four of whom were married, and brought their families with them. Mr. Amrine's family consisted of seven sons and one daughter, the eldest of, the family. The other son-Henry- -subsequently removed to Paris Township; the daughter married Joseph Worley, and lived near Wheeling, W. Va.

Mr. Amrine built his log cabin on the hill west of the Newton pike, where the bend is made in the road. To each of his boys he gave 100 acres of land, and the work of clearing the farms was at once commenced in earnest. They had few-if any-neighbors at first, but formed quite a colony among themselves. They-were a rugged, hardy people, fully fitted to cope with the difficulties and endure the hardships of their wilderness homes. They were religious, frugal and industrious, and soon had fruitful farms, while on all sides, for miles, was yet one deep, dense forest. Abraham Amrine, Sr., died November 14, 1849, at the ripe old age of eighty-eight years. His wife, Mary, had preceded him to the grave many years. She died in September, 1823, only six years after their removal here, at the age of sixty-three years. 
AMERINE, Abraham (I5041)
6128 The name "Emmer" is listed on both the 1860 and 1870 Census ELLIOTT, Emmer (I4747)
6129 The name under which he is listed is the name provided by one of his direct ancestors. I have included this alternate name as it first shows in the 1850 Census and is clearly referring to him as the others in the family are those we would expect in the family of Burroughs Westlake. WESTLAKE, Burroughs (I11717)
6130 The nineteenth annual exhibition of the Highgate and District Chrysanthemum Society took place recently in the large and well-adapted central hall of the Alexandria Palace. This was the second occasion on which the show had taken place in this well-known North London resort, and the display was an excellent one… The premier class in the incurved section was for six vases of incurved blooms, distinct five blooms of one variety in each vase… Second honors were secured by Mr. A. Jones, gardener to Miss Wyburn, Hadley Manor, Barnet, who had very large blooms, but less even than desired, and lacking the finish generally expected. His Chas. H. Curtiss and Lady Isabel were very fine, however. WYBURN, Emily (I6120)
6131 The official conducting the marriage was Samuel P. Todd, his half-brother, and the witnesses were his half-sister and her husband, Jennie and Arthur Mussen. Family F629
6132 The Ohio Marriages shows her name as Alverda J. Heskett HESKETT, Alverta J. (I13362)
6133 The only logical explanation of Henry Toggenburger, age 6, being in the 1870 Census is that Ulrich and Catherine named the next son to be born after their Henry died in 1863 also Henry. This is not without precedent within Richland Township, Ohio at the time.

Johannes and Christina Schiferli had two children named Mary and two named William, and in each case it was the next child born after the first Mary and the first William had died in infancy. The only distinction between them was a different middle name. 
TOGGENBURGER, Henry (I10156)
6134 The pension on which she was living was that of her son, Sherman, whose pension she applied for in 1889. MARTIN, Elizabeth A (I4678)
6135 The President of the Union County Historical Society found their marriage license in a box of papers at the society. Family F896
6136 The recollection of John Kelley will ever remain in the minds of those living, as that of a just and honorable man. He was for many years a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and of the Masonic Order.

KELLY, John (I4468)
6137 The record is unclear on this, but since another son was born and named Thomas in 1703, it seems that this first Thomas died in infancy. WEBSTER, Thomas (I14309)
6138 The record says that James had completed three years of college and that his occupation was "actors and actresses." He was an Aviation Cadet, in the Air Corps of the Regular Army. TRESSEL, James Wyburn (I3503)
6139 The record says that Lloyd was a widower at the time of death. BURNS, Lloyd William (I5372)
6140 The Reid Family were living next door to where Henry C. Watkins was living. So this is how Bettie met Henry who became her husband in 1871 REID, Bettie Olivia (I10221)
6141 The Research Librarian at the Bay County Historical Museum identified this as the gravestone of the woman who was Nathan Todd's wife. SOPIER, Mary (Marie) Frances (I4088)
6142 The Rev. B. H. Pitman , the father of Ann Pitman, Osri's first wife, was a man of strong prejudices and thoroughly orthodox, and at some time an Underwood had come under the ban of his displeasure and he would not consider for a moment his daughter taking that name. As there was no objection to the young man personally, a change of name was decided upon and he applied to the Legislature and received permission, when Osri Underwood became Dr. Henry Robert Vaille. VAILLE, Henry Robert (I10263)
6143 The Robbins family were early pioneers in the area known as "the Great American Desert." Kansas was a part of the Louisiana Purchase and had been maintained by the government as Indian territory.In May 1854, Congress passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act, opening Kansas and Nebraska to settlement. There
were 50,000,000 acres of virgin grassland where anyone could stake his claim.

Probably the Robbins came by wagon train. Con Rod drove cattle during this time.

The Homestead Act of May 20, 1862, became the means of securing a title to the land. Any person who headed a household, including widows and males, was entitled to 160 acres of federal land. Within six months of his application, the homesteader was required to have begun improvements for a permanent home. The homestead claim had to be the settler's legal residence for the next five years. After this period, the settler, with the testimony of two witnesses, was able to officially "prove up" on his land.

Simple dugouts in the earth were the easiest homes to build.With their shovels, they literally dug their homes into the sides of the hills, leaving small openings for the door and windows. The caves provided cramped, primitive quarters for the families. Corn-husks were put under the home woven carpeting. 
ROBBINS, Con Rod (I6709)
