From The American Genealogist, Volume 26, page 230-32

James Ferris of Greenwich, Connecticut by Miss Harriet Scofield, Western Reserve Historical Society, 10825-10915 East Boulevard, Cleveland 6, Ohio

According to all the published accounts of the Ferris family of Greenwich that possess some degree of accuracy, Jeffrey had a son James, born circa 1643, married circa 1698, whose eldest son James 3 born 12/18/1699.  James 2 is said to have died 11/6/1726, leaving a widow Mary, sons James, Nathaniel and Samuel, and daughters Mary and Hannah.

Aside from the improbability, but not impossibility, of a man marrying for the first time at age of about 55 years, and having the above family, this does not fit three original records that have been found, namely:

→ (1) In the list of estates of Greenwich, Conn., in 1694/5 these items occur:

James Ferris and son                103, 0, 0

James Ferris, Jr.                         40, 0, 0

(The latter was the son of (3) Joseph, brother of James 2, and born circa 1662.)

→ (2) John (1) of the town of Westchester on 6/15/1705 deeded to my loving cosen James Ferris, natural son unto my bro. James Ferris of Greenwich, interest in an estate in Greenwich willed to the grantor by my honored father Jeffere Ferris.

→ (3) In the will of James Ferris who died 1726 in Greenwich, he specifically mentioned land, which he had bought of “my cousin John Ferris”.

 

The term cousin as used in record (2) clearly means a nephew.  In record (3), although the term was not frequently used in the sense of an uncle, it is certainly was not used to designate a brother.

 

It seems evident from the above records that James 2 had an adult son in 1694/5 who was living, probably then unmarried, with his father; that because of this, his estate was listed jointly with his fathers; that this son, James 3, born later than 1662 (the date presumably of the birth of James Jr.,) the son of Joseph (3) but before 1674, and was the James Ferris who died 1726.  One cannot say which records from 1690 outward pertain to the father and which to the son, without further research.  It is certain, however, however that James 2 was the patentee of 1665 and almost certainly the voter of 1688 and the one whose lands, lying in Horseneck, were listed and approved Feb. 1687/8.  But the James Ferris who received the grant of land in Elizabeth Neck, recorded January 2, 1692, and the one who received grants in the summer and winter of 1700, may have been either the father or the son, for it is known that James 2 was living as late as 1705.  In that year he purchased land of his brother Peter and of his nephews Joseph and Joshua Ferris and their relationship is so stated in the deeds.

 


Several suggested might be made for further research.  It seems likely that James 2 had only the one son, but there may have been daughters.  One may have been Deborah Ferris who married 1/11/1701/2, Jonathan Bell, of Greenwich as his 2d wife, as she named her eldest son Francis after Jonathan's grandfather, and her second son, James, perhaps after her own father.  No record has been seen of either the given or maiden name of the wife of James 2, who was married probably prior to 1670. Neither is the surname of the wife of James 3 known but she was called Mary in his will.

 

On 30 March 1719, in a deed not recorded until 14 Sept. 1730, James 3 deeded to his sons, James, Nathaniel, and Samuel (all minors) his rights in land bought of John Foach (Feake? Finch?) of Long Island, then undivided.  Whether this was merely a right in the undivided lands of Greenwich, or land undivided between heirs to an estate and hence a clue to the identity of one of the Ferrises “missing” wives, is left for future research to determine.  The writer, situated at some distance from Greenwich and Long Island, and unable to pursue these problems further at the present time, will welcome investigation, contributions and discussions by others.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From a Scofield letter dated May 13, 1959 in reply to Chaplain Ferris who had asked which James married Mary Merritt - My answer is neither!  There was no such person. James Ferris (one of them - the first) mentioned in a deed, as I remember, his brother Thomas Merritt, and it seems likely that was what someone found and jumped to the conclusion that James’ wife was Thomas’ sister, Mary Merritt.   But Thomas Merritt, who lived very near James Ferris, had no sister Mary.  As it happens, Mary (Ferris) Lockwood, widow of Jonathan Lockwood (died 1688) married second, about Sept. 1696, Thomas Merritt.  He was later of Rye NY. Hence the brothership of James Ferris and Thomas Merritt. I have seen no other possible clue that connects these two men.  Long ago I wrote to the person who inserted the item in the Virkus’ abridged Compendium of American Genealogy about Mary Merritt as wife of James Ferris asking where he obtained the information.  That person did not remember, had not written down the reference.  I have traced ever other such statement back to the same source in Virkus.  As you probably know, Virkus’ work is in very great disrepute, and nothing should be accepted from it without your own verification from original sources or reliable references.  I have checked Merritt genealogy without finding any eligible girl named Mary in that family, for either of the James Ferrises.

From Chaplain Ferris, Volume 4.

A Note: This is important

Prior to 1950, all published accounts gave James, born circa 1642 and James who died 1726 as one and the same person.  From the investigation of the late Harriett Scofield, the above seems much more probable since John Ferris (1), of Westchester, brother of James 1, deeded land in 1705 to James, Ason of my brother James, and in the will of James 2, who died 1726, he mentions land he bought of Amy cousin, John Ferris (1), It would not have been likely for him to refer to his brother as Amy cousin, although it was not uncommon to refer to nephews and uncles as cousins.  James Ferris appears in many Stamford records but it is impossible to determine which is father and which is son or which is the son of John.

Jim -what all of the above means is that in previous editions I have omitted a James in the line. What follows is corrected based on what I decipher the above remarks to mean.   I thank Bill Slagle for calling my attention to this omission.

Alfred Pritchard Sloan, Jr born in New Haven, Connecticut, May 23, 1875, the first of five children of Alfred Pritchard Sloan, Sr., and Katherine Mead Sloan. His father, a machinist by training, was then a partner in a small company importing coffee and tea. In 1885 the family moved to Brooklyn, where it was particularly active in the Methodist Church. (Young Alfred's maternal grandfather was a Methodist minister.) Alfred, Jr., excelled as a student both in public schools and at Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute where he completed the college-preparatory course. After some delay in being admitted to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (which considered him too young when he first applied), he matriculated in 1892 and took a degree in electrical engineering in three years as the youngest member of his graduating class. Mr. Sloan began his working career as a draftsman in a small machine shop, the Hyatt Roller Bearing Company of Newark, New Jersey. At his urging, Hyatt was soon producing new antifriction bearings for automobiles. In 1898 he married Irene Jackson of Roxbury, Massachusetts. The next year, at age 24, he became the president of Hyatt, where he supervised all aspects of the company's business. Hyatt bearings became a standard in the automobile industry, and the company grew rapidly under his leadership. In 1916 the Hyatt Roller Bearing Company, together with a number of other manufacturers of automobile accessories, merged with the United Motors Corporation, of which Mr. Sloan became President. Two years later that company became part of the General Motors Corporation (itself established in 1908 as the General Motors Company), and Mr. Sloan was named Vice President in Charge of Accessories and a member of the Executive Committee. He was elected President of General Motors in 1923, succeeding Pierre S. du Pont, who said of him on occasion: "The greater part of the successful development of the Corporation's operations and the building of a strong manufacturing and sales organization is due to Mr. Sloan. His election to the presidency is a natural and well-merited recognition of his untiring and able efforts and successful achievement." Mr. Sloan had developed by then his system of disciplined, professional management that provided for decentralized operations with coordinated centralized policy control. Applying it to General Motors, he set the Corporation on its course of industrial leadership. The next 23 years, with Mr. Sloan as Chief Executive Officer, were years of enormous expansion for the Corporation and of a steady increase in its share of the automobile market. In 1937 Mr. Sloan was elected Chairman of the Board of General Motors. He continued as Chief Executive Officer until 1946. When he resigned from the chairmanship in 1956, the General Motors Board said of him: "The Board of Directors has acceded to Mr. Sloan's wish to retire as Chairman. He has served the Corporation long and magnificently. His analysis and grasp of the problems of corporate management, his great vision and rare good judgment, laid the solid foundation which has made possible the growth and progress of General Motors over the years." Mr. Sloan was then named Honorary Chairman of the Board, a title he retained until his death on February 17, 1966. For many years he had devoted the largest share of his time and energy to philanthropic activities, both as a private donor to many causes and organizations and through the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, which he established in 1934. Mr. Sloan, as a realist as well as a humanist and philanthropist, looked upon the Foundation as an extension of his own life and work. Although he recognized the inevitability of change that might dictate a different course, he expected the Foundation would "continue as an operating facility indefinitely into the future...to represent my accomplishments in this life." His accomplishments during his lifetime were of the highest order, and in themselves provide the most dramatic and lasting tribute to his extraordinary talent. Through the Foundation, his accomplishments have been extended and expanded. See InterNet for additional info.

[From Bill Slagle, 1997 - These stories come first-hand from my mother and her younger sister, both of whom knew Theodore Isaac to speak to.  As I wrote before, my mother was 19 when he died 1933, and my aunt was 14.  Theodore Isaac Ferris was a tall, thin Ichabod Crane-like eccentric.  He would walk into town from his home on Bedford Street to buy day-old bread to save a penny and to read the newspaper at the public library.  He would speak to little girls, but he did not like the little boys because they made fun of him. Eccentric he may have been, but he was no fool; when he died, they found money in the mattresses and money in the walls.  He was a millionaire in cash and property! He owned all the land on Summer Street where the Ridgeway Shopping Center now stands (when my parents were children, the circus used to set up their tents there.) and the King School, a private boy’s school leased their playing fields from him.] Theodore sold Halloween (now Cummings) Park, in 1927, for $300,000.  This property is a beachfront park on Long Island Sound.

(5.1.1.5) SYLVANUS FERRIS (AFN: 8RK9-PG) (stone has Sylvenus) a Revolutionary worthy, born August 10, 1737 Greenwich CT and died January 12, 1824 Salem (Lewisboro), Westchester, NY; headstone says he died January 12, 1821 age 86y 5m 2d – 1821 does not track with 86y so think the 1821 on the stone’s photo is 1824; he was about two years old when his father died and his mother was appointed guardian of the children. The mother died 1744 and Silvanus's Uncle Samuel (5.1.3), was appointed guardian of the children and executor of the estate of James (5.1.1). Silvanus served as a Private in Captain Stephen White’s Company of Stanwich, 9th Regiment during the French and Indian War and was called to service during the month of August 1757, when the company marched to the relief of Fort William Henry. Silvanus married September 10, 1761 at Greenwich, Mary Mead (3.5.5.8).  Silvanus and Mary lived in their native town prosperous and happy until the outbreak of the Revolutionary War (1775-1783) when Mr. Ferris espousing the cause of the patriots, became so persecuted by the Tory contingent in and about Greenwich that he decided to move with his family across the state line into Westchester Co NY; he purchased May 28, 1782 of Eli Rundle (Randall?) a farm property on each side of the road leading from Canaan Parish to Ridgefield, located about four miles south of South Salem; moved his family there immediately. The homestead stood nearly opposite a country store and post office which was operated by Silvanus, who made a business of farming, store keeping and entertaining travelers with the homestead being maintained as an Inn until about 1815. It became known as the Silvanus Ferris Homestead and was still standing in 1934 and was beautifully maintained by the owner. The store and post office remained until 1905 when destroyed by fire. Mrs. Ferris, with saddlebags filled with stockings of her own and neighbors' knitting, made annual visits to the city of New York on horseback, disposed of the goods, purchased such articles as herself and neighbors needed, and brought what she could home with her. On one of these visits, Mrs. Ferris pulled a sprout from one of the large black walnut trees north of Harlem Bridge for a whip. When she reached her home she planted it, and an immense tree grew on the old homestead. Mr. and Mrs. Ferris' family consisted of four sons and five daughters. Seven of them were born in Greenwich and two in Salem. Silvanus was frequently elected to public office and in 1783, one year after moving to Lewisboro, was chosen Highway Commissioner. Whether inadvertently or not, Silvanus set fire to a tract of woodland belonging to Thacher Hayes, but at the town meeting in 1811, it was voted that the fine, which had been imposed upon him on that occasion "be given off".  Silvanus was a Presbyterian and always faithful to family prayers at night and morning, always standing when he prayed or asked blessing at the table, his family and guests also standing. Silvanus and Mary are buried in the old Presbyterian Churchyard at South Salem NY (Photos).

Silvanus’ Will:  

The will of Sylvanus left to his four daughters the sum of $40.00 each and "the whole of my beds and beding and clothing except what is before reserved for my wife during her natural life, then to be equally divided between them."   The will was made in 1819, but Sylvanus outlived his wife by about 18 months.  His son, Gideon was Executor and his daughter Molly, wife of Henry Hayes, designated her brother Sylvanus of Herkimer Co, as her attorney to collect:

 

Know all men by these presents, that Whereas Sylvanus Ferris, late of the town of South Salem, County of Westchester & State of New York, by his last will and testament in writing did give & bequeath unto his daughter, Molly Hayes, of the town of Galway, County of Saratoga and State aforesaid, a legacy of forty dollars and a share of bedding and wearing apparel to be paid unto the said Molly Hayes and of the said will made & constituted his son, Gideon Ferris of the said town of Salem one of his Executors as in and by the said will may appear, now know ye that I, the said Molly Hayes & all of my Heirs whose names & seals are hereunto  affixed have made, ordained, constituted and appointed Sylvanus Ferris of the town of Norway, County of Herkimer & State aforesaid our true & lawful attorney for us and in our names & for our own use & benefit to ask, demand and receive of and from the said Gideon Ferris the legacy of Forty dollars and the share of clothing or the amount in money according to the appraisal given and bequeathed to the said Molly Hayes by the will of the said Sylvanus Ferris aforesaid & upon receipt thereof by or payment thereof to our said attorney a full release or discharge from the same to make, execute and deliver hereby, ratifying and confirming whatsoever our said attorney shall lawfully do in the premises.

Personal traits of Silvanus Ferris as stated in letter written by Cyrus Mead Ferris on June 28, 1889 to Charles Ferris Gettemy:  "It may be interesting to know something of the general traits and character of our grandfather, Silvanus Ferris the gist from my own observation and recollection although I was but a boy.  I thought a great deal of him for I never remember of his giving me an unpleasant word, although I lived in the same house until his death over 12 years. Much of my leisure time was spent with him in his room, or in his out of door walks attending to business, etc.  I remember how well he looked.  He was a tall, straight man with a full head of long white hair, always wearing a smooth shaven face, and dark eyes, weighing, I should think, 200 or more, spry and active until a few days before his death, and was always much respected by his neighbors and friends, dignified in appearance, though social and friendly with all. By profession he was a Presbyterian, a Christian man, most always attending church though four miles away, faithful to his prayers morning and night under all circumstances, always standing up when he prayed or when asking a blessing at the table and his family and guest at the same time standing likewise.  He was a man of even disposition never petulant and uneasy, but happy and liked to see others so, never using a word of bad or profane language and for those excellent traits of character I have heard his neighbors say he was Reverenced and respected.

I have been told he never did much hard work after his boys were large enough to do it. My father used to tell a story about his hoeing corn.  He usually sent his boys out to work first, he followed later.  When the horn blew for dinner, he would set up his hoe in the row at the place where he stopped.   One day, while he was taking a nap after dinner the boys played until near time to come out; then, to make him think they had worked, they sat his hoe back a few rows.  He came, took his hoe and hoed the same rows over again to the great amusement of the boys, as they used to tell him of it in later years.

To show how easy he took things, he had a tenement house about 1/2 mile from his home.  One day it caught fire and when word came to him he arose from his chair and reaching for his pipe began to fill it. His wife urged him to hurry, to which he replied, he should light up his pipe before he went.

I speak of this to show his disposition, while grandmother was quite the opposite and called a good thorough businesswoman.

I well remember what pleased him much and he liked to tell of it.  In the time of the Revolutionary War before he left Greenwich CT, the Torries (or cowboys, so called) stole everything they could that was useful, his crops, his horse and a pair of oxen.  The oxen were stolen by a neighbor named Bishop living in Darien, the next town, who years later after became a Quaker quite wealthy and respected, but it so troubled him that when he made his will he made provision that Silvanus Ferris should be paid for one ox of the oxen with interest which he received.  It pleased him to think that the old Quaker dare not die without paying for the ox he had and exposing himself after he was dead."

 (Jim - there is conflicting info on how many children they had.)

            The personal records of his life are meager and not illuminative. Certain it is that he born neither to poverty nor wealth, and it may be that his finest inheritance was a body and disposition that enabled him to achieve an exceptionally long life in a day when this was not easy to attain, and that he was a father of a numerous progeny. Longevity and large families were characteristics of many of his descendants. In the evening of his life he was described by a contemporary as a “tall and straight man with a full head of long white hair, always wearing a smooth shaven face, dark eyes and weighing about two hundred pounds, or more, spry and active until a few years prior to his death, and was always much respected by his neighbors and friends, dignified in appearance though social and friendly with all. By profession he was a Presbyterian, a Christian gentleman… for these excellent traits of character I have heard his neighbors say he was Reverenced and respected.” This contemporary also pointed out that, “I have been told that he never did much work after his boys were large enough to do it.” Born to Silvanus and Mary were:

(5.1.1.5.1.1.5) CHAUNCEY WASHINGTON FERRIS born September 22, 1811 Cato, Cayuga, NY and died February 11, 1889 Hillsdale MI [Jim - Chaplain Ferris spelled his name ‘Chauncey’, but the 1860 census has it without the ‘e’, so I will go with the census, especially since Chaplain Ferris spelled Chauncy, Jr., without the ‘e’; apparently the census was wrong – a document shows his name with the ‘e’]; married 1st September 27, 1838 Julia Maria Smith born January 7, 1817 and died April 28, 1841; married 2d October, 10, 1844 at Hillsdale, Catherine Ann Wolford born June 10, 1816 and died August 22, 1850; and 3d November 12, 1851 Phebe Elizabeth Hedges born April 1, 1822 and died May 30, 1911. Chauncy was one of the earlier pioneers of Hillsdale MI. He built a large brick house there in 1845, at Number 9 North Street.   In partnership with a Mr. Cook, Chauncy open the settlement’s first store.  There apparently was no offspring from the first marriage. Listed in the 1860 census of Hillsdale County, Hillsdale Village; in this same census, there was a Corneluis, age 22 and Luthren, age 7 residing in the household. Speculate that Cornelius was (5.1.5.1.8.5), Chauncy’s nephew. Further speculation is that the Luthren, age 7, might have been a son of Luther, Chauncy’s brother, although there is no offspring shown.]

John Potter Cook and Chauncey Ferris, his friend, were the third and fourth men to come to Hillsdale. They proved to be the "movers and shakers" for the community during their entire lifetime. These two men, at the age of 20, left their home in Cato, New York to journey to the west with a wagonload of mercantile goods. They stopped first in the small settlement of Jonesville and established the first store. However, by 1834 they decided that Hillsdale offered them more opportunities. In 1838 they set up the first grist mill using the mill pond race as it merged with the St. Joseph River. It was a simple mill using only a millstone and a water wheel to furnish power but from 1838, a mill on this same site has continued to operate to the present time. (The mill was purchased from Ferris and Cook by F.W. stock in 1869 and was operated by that same family for more than 80 years.) One humorous note concerning Cook was, that as the settlement evolved into a village, he was designated as the wrestler to test any newcomer to the area. Together, Ferris and Cook platted much of the settlement which became Hillsdale. These two men, with foresight knew development would be enhanced with a railroad connection. Cook, becoming a contractor for Michigan Southern Railroad, and working with Henry Waldron and Charles T. Mitchell (two more of the early settlers), was able to extend the railroad from Adrian in Lenewee County, where it had ended, to Hillsdale. Recognizing the benefit, the men then erected warehouses along the terminus in Hillsdale in order that products might be shipped from the area. By being instrumental in organizing Hillsdale as a county in 1835, Cook was appointed Treasurer and Ferris became the County Clerk. Ferris also was elected supervisor and served as a school commissioner and as mayor of Hillsdale. Appointed by President Martin Van Buren, Cook became Hillsdale's first Postmaster. The two men were also given the task of building the first frame Court House. Additionally, Cook served in 1845 in the State Legislature and then in the State Senate. He also was elected to two state Constitutional Conventions in 1850 and 1870 when Michigan framed its State Constitution. With his friends, Waldron, Mitchell and Ferris, Cook organized the first bank in the village and then in 1874 established the Hillsdale Savings Bank. Cook labored for his community tirelessly as a member of the Hillsdale Board of Education and the Board of Trustees of Hillsdale College when it was moved from Spring Arbor in 1844. Through Cook's efforts the Hillsdale County Fair was organized and Cook served as its first Treasurer. Hillsdale was well served by the work and the promotion throughout their lives by John Potter Cook and Chauncey Ferris.

(5.1.1.5.1.3.2.1) NEWTON D. FERRIS - the following is speculation based on his parent’s marriage date and the fact that Ira in Cayuga County is an adjacent county to Oswego County, and Newton is identified as being from Ira. The Oswego County NY webpage on www.rootsweb.com has a series of letters from Chauncy A. Smith to his wife during the Civil War. In those letters he mentions Newton Ferris who was his tent-mate. They were in Company F, 111th Infantry Regiment, New York Volunteers. The letters are interesting reading as they depict soldier life during the Civil War. The letter depicts how Newton was captured and it is learned, later died a Confederate POW Camp.”October 18, 1864, Camp before Petersburg: Monday night Mr. Ferris and Mr. Mainard of Lysander came into camp. I was glad to see their familiar faces.  . . . Newton Ferris is tenting with me and I find his company agreeable. . .  I have just come to my tent from a drill. John, my friend was out on fatigue duty in the night in company with Newton Ferris, for those who are on fatigue duty in the night are exempt from drill the next day. Newton had just come in from the post office with the Tribune. I asked him if the news of Sheridan’s last victory was in the paper. He said, ‘Yes,’, so we all sat down in the tent to hear the good news read. While Mr. Ferris has been reading, seven have passed over our camp from the Rebel Battery, and not a great way over eight, but I am thankful that as yet today no one has been hurt.” “October 30, 1864, Newton Ferris said that he had been in the army almost three years and remarked to me that it was about as hard a time as he had seen in his whole service.” He was talking about a march they were on.  “On the 2d day of November, Mr. Ferris of Ira, John Howard of the town of Rose, and John O’Brian of Syracuse with myself were detailed to go on picket about three miles to the left, for the first time and it proved to be the last time for Ferris and Howard. We arrived at the picket line at 6 o’clock in the evening, we were posted and told that we would be relieved in 24 hours and so we were, but not by Union soldiers. This picket that we were on had just been formed without any reserve picket to protect it. The Johnnies had been informed of the situation and they made a raid on our line the next night about 5 p.m. and gobbled up, I should think about 150 of our pickets in good style, of whom I was one. I should judge that there were about four or five hundred of the raiders and when they got into the rear of our picket line they formed themselves into a hollow square, having guards 4 deep all around the square. We pickets were looking to the front of the enemy and not the rear, consequently we were taken by surprise and were not prepared to defend ourselves. The front ranks of this square were in blue clothes that they had gotten from deserters and this too threw us off our guard as they approached us. When they came up to our post they had some five or six big lusty fellows outside of their ranks to disarm us and shove us into the trap with a rush.  ….  When they had their square filled with out pickets they started for their lines acting as though they felt jolly over their game they had played.”  Chauncy later escaped but Newton and Howard did not.

(5.1.1.5.2.1.2.1) ELIZABETH HAYES born Saratoga Co NY and married Charles Knox Fletcher

(5.1.1.5.2.2) WILLIAM JAMES HAYES born November 9, 1795 Galway NY and died November 1, 1849 Sparta, Randolph, IL; July 1833 William and his family left their home in Galway and traveled to Cleveland OH to look over land and visit with Anna’s half-sister, Ursula Cownover Talor.  In July, William left Cleveland and went to Illinois to see if he liked it better than Ohio.  Apparently, he liked what he saw because in September 1833, he and his family moved to Fort Clark (now Peoria) IL.  After his arrival in Illinois, William bought and sold a great deal of land in the area. In 1834, they moved to Randolph County. In 1837 William made a trip back to New York and on his way back to Illinois, he contacted small pox. Three of his children subsequently caught the disease, but all recovered. In 1841, William had a public sale, selling his farm and personal property consisting of: 4 horses, 40 head of cattle, 50 hogs, one 2-horse wagon, harnesses, ploughs, cradles, hay, grain, etc. In 1842, William was involved in the underground railroad. He helped five "indentured servants" (Susan Richardson "Sukey", Hannah Morrison, and Susan's children, Jarrot, Harrison, and Anderson) escape from Randolph County IL. The five had belonged to Andrew Borders, a very wealthy and influential man who lived west of Sparta IL. The route the escapees traveled is not known, but it is known that by September 5, 1842, they had arrived in Farmington IL. An account of what happened to them after that date is found in Fighters for Freedom by Herman Muelder published in 1959. In December, 1842 Andrew Borders was notified by Peter Frans, Sheriff of Knox County that his five servants were jailed in Galesburg IL. Borders and his son, James traveled to Galesburg to claim them. Because Hannah Morrison's term of indenture had expired the year before, Borders made no claim for her, but he did claim Sukey and the boys. However, Sukey was gone when he arrived ("either ran away or was taken away") and he got only her young sons. In February 1843, he sued William Hayes for trespass in aiding his servants in escaping and asked for $2,500.00 in damages.  This was a civil case tried in the Circuit Court of Perry County at Pickneyville IL and judgment was rendered in favor of the plaintiff, Borders for $300.00 in damages plus cost. The case was appealed to the Illinois Supreme Court where the judgment of the trial court was affirmed with costs. This did not stop William from his underground railroad activities. In 1845, he hired a lawyer for his services in the case of "The People vs. William Hayes and Daniel Morrison" for harboring a slave. This case was tried in the Clinton County Court in 1848. William married, November 25, 1819, Anna Johnston (1800‑1861); and born to them were:

There is loads of information on the Internet on Billy Fiske. Born into a wealthy family, Fiske was at school in Europe in 1928 when he and a few other Americans formed a bobsled team to enter the Winter Olympics at St. Mortiz, Switzerland. The fearless seventeen-year-old Fiske was chosent to drive the 5-man bobsled and he drove it to a gold medal. Four years later, he won another gold medal as driver of the winning 4-man sled in the Lake Placid Olympics. Fiske also won the Grand National championship on the famed Cresta Run in Switzerland in 1936 and 1938. Fiske married the Countess of Warwick in 1938 and he joined the British Royal Air Force in 1939 shortly after WWII began. He was seriously wounded on a mission over Europe in June of 1940. He landed his plan in England but died a short time later. The Billy Fiske Memorial Trophy is awared to the national champion 4-man bobsled team. From the London Daily Mail, July 6, 2001: Someone had walked mysteriously down to that shadowy old corner of the cemetery again and put more flowers on Billy Fiske’s grave. The grave was squeezed in under drooping trees. And the sun hardly ever got through to light it up. ‘Pilot Officer W.M.L. Fiske III’ was on the headstone. Then, ‘Born 4 June 1911 in Chicago. Killed in Action 17 August 1940. He died for England.’ What that tells you about Billy Fiske is nothing, because he was the all-time golden boy, and now there is something in the cinemas and his name is starting to be heard. The film is Pearl Harbor and it has a handsome American pilot leaving for England to join the RAF’s famous all-American Eagle Squadron. Then he fought in the Battle of Britain, which is about where the real Fiske comes in. In the 21 Club in New York, after a hard day making another fortune in banking, a friend said the news from London was grim. War seemed certain. Britain was going to need fighter pilots. Billy’s eyes shone like the silver dollars he tossed to the shoeshine boys on Wall Street. A war was a different kind of thrill. His life had been full of thrills, such as waiting at the top of Cresta Run in St Moritz ready to be called for his two minutes of terror rocketing down the ice. He was the best there was for a while. Won an Olympic bobsled gold medal for the United States in 1928 when he was only 16. Another in ’32. There wasn’t a society place in Europe where Billy wouldn’t stop the traffic in the lobby when he checked into the hotel and you should have seen the crowd around him in Monte Carlo, watching his hand hover over the roulette table, clicking a tube of $100 chips. First time anyone heard of him here was when stories came down from Cambridge, where he studied the late Twenties. The stories were of him getting up to 110mph between Trinity Hall and Mlldenhall golf club in his 4 litre green Bentley. Money meant nothing. Billy Fiske did it all. The beauties of Europe’s high society clung to him like ivy. Now the richest cigar smoke in the world held like low cloud in the 21 Club the night that Billy heard about the big fight coming in the sky over Britain. It was something he had to be part of; the biggest thrill of all. No American came with more blue-blood. His father was head of Dillon, Reade, and Co., close to being America’s biggest investment banker. But being American was no good for joining the RAF. You had to be British, though Commonwealth or Empire would do. Anyway Billy got a suite on the Arcadia and sailed for England. That was August 1939. The woman he had met at St. Moritz ball, Rose Bingham, former Countess of Warwick, was his wife now and could open some doors. Billy’s fame took care of the rest. Just how he persuaded Air Chief Marshall Sir William Elliott to take him, no one knows, but when he left the Savoy soon after their meeting in September 1939, Billy was going to be in the war. In his diary he put: ‘I had a quiet Saturday night before the selection board appointment because I didn’t want to have eyes looking like blood stained oysters.’ ‘A natural pilot,’ his instructor said. He qualified and was posted to Tangmere in Sussex. The base was to be burned into the history of the Battle of Britain. The 601 Squadron was there. The Millionaire’s Squadron, it was called. Most of the pilots had parachuted out of the pages of Debrett’s. Max Aitken, son of Daily Express owner Lord Beaverbrook was in 601, and Sir Philip Sassoon, Loel Guinness, William Rhodes-Moorhouse, one of the Montagu bank family.  Now Billy Fiske was around, looking for excitement. Just so petrol rationing wouldn’t spoil running their wonderful cars, Willie Rhodes-Moorhouse was told to fix it. He did: he bought the local garage. Only the tanks were nearly empty. Loel Guinness as a director of Shell and got the company to send a tanker to top them up. This is how these guys lived between bravery in combat. Billy was right in there with them. Billy flew his Hurricane to glory. Ed Murrow, the American radio reported, credited him with six kills. He was a sensation. The day he ran out of bullets, he manoeuvred a JU88 bomber into a barrage balloon. American pilots, civilians, were arriving in Britain and the Eagle Squadron was forming. Billy got word he would be sent to lead it when they were ready. The morning started full of sun over Tangmere on August 16, 1940. There was a scramble at 12.25. Billy flew into a dark sheet of Stuka dive-bombers moving on the base. He engaged them. A good shot form a German tail gunner hit his engine. The Hurricane caught fire. It came smoking over a hedge and belly-flopped back on the Tangmere runway. His lower body and hands were burned. That night he was sitting up joking in bed at the Royal West Sussex Hospital in Chichester. Next day he was dead. Died of shock,’ his commander, Sir Archibald Hope, said in his grief. A Union Jack and the Stars and Stripes were over his coffin when they carried him through the trees of Boxgrove Priory. He was 29 and the first American in uniform to die in Europe in WWII, which seems like a really big movie waiting to be made. On July 4, 1941, a plaque was unveiled to his memory in St. Paul’s Cathedral. Under his name are the words: “An American citizen who died that England might live.”

After looking over it last weekend, I realized where my late brother Steve got his engineering genius. When we were growing up he was always taking things apart and trying to build something new. After high school, he went into the Army where he worked on helicopters, and then, while on weekend leave, he was in a horrible accident and suffered a serious brain injury. After getting a medical discharge, he went on to seven different universities and colleges, but he could never pass the calculus tests, and he finally gave up trying to get an engineering degree. But I think you can see where I’m going with this – it took a catastrophic injury to stop him. I think he got a fair share of those Ferris genes!”

(5.1.2.6.4.2.1) MARYETTE FERRIS born c1825; married c1853, Hezekiah Stow (Stowe); one source believes they divorced or he deserted her and the children;

Jim, I do have reason to believe that Hezekiah Stow/e and Maryette Ferris divorced. Here is my information and research so far on the subject. It is long, I apologize, but it is circumstantial, so I know no other way to present it to you. I have an ancestor, Hezekiah Stow/e who married on March 3, 1859 in McGregor, Clayton County, Iowa, Mary Sparks. Mary Spark's parents and most of her 12 brothers and sisters lived in Clayton Co., Iowa at the time. There is only one other Stow/e family in Clayton Co., Iowa at the time and I can prove that they are not Hezekiah's parents. My Hezekiah Stow/e is on the 1860 Clayton Co., IA. census with his wife Mary and infant son, James Niles Stow/e, living right next door to Mary's mother, Elizabeth Sparks and some of Mary's sibs. My Hezekiah Stow/e and family are on the 1870 Pleasant Grove, Olmsted County, MN census living in the same tiny hamlet as Mary's mother and several of Mary's married sibs. On the 1875 MN state census, Hezekiah is missing and Mary is listed as a widow. When I first starting researching Hezekiah Stowe, all I knew about him was what I got from the 1860 and 1870 census records. He was born in New York between 1828-1835. First, I looked for him on the 1850 Federal census. This was before the computer. I used census records at the MN Historical Society, National Archives, and WI Historical Society. For the 1850 census, only the Heads of Households were indexed. I soon found Hezekiah Stowe in Prattville. He was married, so I thought not mine. He was the only Hezekiah Stow/e listed as Head of Household in any State on the 1850 census. So, I figured my Hezekiah Stowe was living with his parents.  I was determined to find him and Minnesota did not have the census records for every State. (I live in MN.) However, the Wisconsin Historical Society Library did have every Federal census for every year for every State. I spent two weeks in Madison, Wis looking at EVERY SINGLE Stow, Stowe, Stone, Stone, Stoe, etc household in every State on the 1850 census. Believe me, Hezekiah Stowe in Prattville, NY is the ONLY Hezekiah Stow/e on the 1850 census in ANY STATE. My ancestor's name is Hezekiah Niles Stowe, so I also checked for any Niles Stow/e, H. Stow/e, N. Stowe, H.N. Stow/e that could be him---NOTHING. So, I went back to the Hezekiah Stowe in Prattsville. He wasn't on the 1860 census, but it appears that his wife was, interesting. He wasn't on the 1870 or 1880 New York census either. On the 1850 census, the Roswell Ferris listed in the household above Hezekiah Stowe caught my eye. Hezekiah named his son, Roswell! Sure enough Maryetta Stowe was living with Roswell Ferris on the 1860 census. I followed Roswell Stowe thru census records and he appeared to disappear by 1900, so I ordered the death certificate for Roswell Stowe, guessing his death date. Sure enough, he died May 23, 1889 in Ashland. On his death certificate it said that his name was Roswell Denis Stowe, he was born in Prattsville, his father's name was Hezekiah Stowe born in Cohoes, N.Y. and his mother was Maryetta Stowe born in Ashland, N.Y. I guessed that his grandfather Stowe might be Dennis Stowe and he was named for his two grandfathers. So, I checked the Cohoes, Albany Co. census and was excited to find a Dennis Stowe there who was old enough to be his grandfather. Next, I wrote to Greene County to look for a divorce decree for Hezekiah Niles Stow/e and Maryetta Ferris Stowe. They immediately sent me an automated reply that said  it might take them a year to answer my request. Sure enough, exactly one a year later I received a standard reply that they found nothing. I don't really trust that is accurate, (for the obvious reasons) and also because I have since learned that the old Greene county divorce records are not indexed. Then, more recently on the internet, I found a probate record for Giles Sutton. His will was written May 29, 1855 and he listed, "to granddaughter Maryetta Stowe, child of my daughter Eleanor, now deceased, $90.00." Also, given was information taken from the newspaper when the will was probated, Feb. 1857, named as Heirs In Law -- in Newspaper Legal Notice: "Maryetta Stowe, granddaughter, wife of Hezekiah Stowe, of Prattsville." So, all this was interesting, but it really didn't help me. I was stuck. Several years went by and one day on the Stowe Rootsweb Surname List a woman from Washington State posted a query. (She got the following information about her ancestor from a partly filled out DAR application --filled out in the 1920's) Her ancestor, Henrietta Stowe Ostrum was born in 1832 in Cohoes, N.Y. Her father was Dennis Stowe and she had siblings named Schuyler/Frank Stowe, Hezekiah Stowe, and Elizabeth Stowe. Henrietta married David Ostrum in Cohoes? and moved to N.J. They had several children (she listed them by name) and then David Ostrum died about 1863 in N.J. or N.Y. Henrietta Stowe Ostrum and her five small children then moved between 1864-1869 to Pleasant Grove, Olmsted Co Minnesota. The woman in the query stated that she didn't know why Henrietta moved West with her five children but she speculated that maybe Henrietta had family there. Well, I almost died! I have been to Pleasant Grove, Olmsted Co., MN because that is where my Hezekiah Stowe lived from about 1861 to his death about 1874 and it is TINY. I checked the census records and sure enough, there was Henrietta Ostrum in Pleasant Grove in 1870 and every year thru 1900. She died in 1906. So, what about Hezekiah Stow/e in Prattsville? Did he get a divorce or just leave, because I believe that he is the same man who married in 1859 in Iowa and moved to Pleasant Grove, MN where he died about 1874. Statistically the chances that it is just a coincidence that Henrietta Stowe Ostrum (who also coincidentally HAD a brother named Hezekiah Stowe) moved alone across the country with five small children and JUST HAPPENED to land in a tiny little town where ANOTHER UNRELATED Hezekiah Stowe (also born in N.Y.) lived, is highly unlikely, especially given how hard a time I had finding ANY Hezekiah Stow/e on the 1850 census in any State. So, this is my research information, circumstantial evidence, so far. I have not been able to find anything additional on Maryette Ferris Stow/e and I was hoping that you maybe had something. Thanks, Nancy

From Laurel Ferris: Here is the only references` I found in Lincoln A. Ferris's sermons to his father and mother. I thought you might be interested in them (embellished as they appear) since the same parents raised GWG Ferris.

"In the gray of an October day, long years ago, there came to my hand a telegram, from the publishers for whom I had worked saying: 'Perkins, of Chicago, is sick. Would you like to take the branch office. Will contract for four years at $6,000.00 a year, and give you the bonus of the office. Worth last year $7,800.00 to Perkins. Ought to be worth $10,000.00 to you. Wire us when you will go.' In the same thirty minutes there came a letter from the Presiding Elder, Alfred Coons, of Kingston District, New York Conference, saying: 'I understand you have some months, before entering the Theological Seminary. Would like you to supply the Livingstonville charge until the close of the Conference year. You will have lots of hard work, a good deal of experience, and only God in heaven knows if you will ever get any pay. Write me if it is possible for you to go.' I gave the messages into  my father's hands, he being a 'preacher man' and asked him what to do. His eyes filled with mist as he gave them back, saying: 'My son, you will need to speak to your Heavenly Father about so important a matter as this.' And a lad climbed the stairs and after two hours came again and sent a telegram, saying: 'Impossible to go to Chicago.' And another saying: 'Will leave for Livingstonville two weeks from today." "I am the plainest sort of man and far removed from the poet's hear, yet I journeyed four hundred and fifty miles to walk down a path not longer than the aisle of a church, where, as a boy of seven, I walked on even-tide with my poet mother; and I remember saying: 'Mama, why does the mountain ash flower in the drops of blood?' And my mother said, 'The mountain ash is far from home. Its friends are far away on the mountains and maybe God lets it blossom in red so it can say to them, 'I love you and i remember, and my heart is always with you in the hills.' The grasses are long since green above the grave of my mother. The mountain ash no longer flames in red and the roses have died beside the walk, but they still cast their shadows in my heart."

After leaving school he began teaching, and followed that vocation, making his home on the old homestead.  Politically, George was a Republican. Mary married 2d December 20, 1881 in Prattsville NY, Charles H. Shoemaker.  Born to her and George were:

Mosher born 1853 Greene Co and died April 1, 1950 Alden IL. Henry and Millie lived on the Ferris homestead at Alden IL, where they built a butter and cheese factory. [Jim - I assume Henry is the son, in S. Ferris & Son.] About 1881, Henry conceived an idea for a hay carrier, which he perfected and patented. Hunt, Helm & Ferris were the manufacturers of the celebrated New Star one-way carrier, and the Swivel Reversible Hay Elevator and Carrier (see photos).  These carriers were cast at Rockford and put together in Harvey.  In addition to their carriers, Hunt, Helm & Ferris carried a full and complete line of the latest and most improved hay forks, hooks, etc.  They had four traveling salesmen and their carriers were sold in all parts of the U. S. and Canada.  Prior to the hay carrier, he had patented a farm gate and a flytrap. He became affiliated with local men in the manufacture of farm and dairy appliances. The firm started work in a blacksmith shop, then the basement of a hardware store and later moved to a plant that covered many acres. The firm's name was changed to Starline, Inc., which now is known all over the country for its many labor saving devices for the farmer. (1963). Born to Henry and Millie were:

Howard entered the Starline factory as a timekeeper but soon realized that to obtain an executive position in the plant it would be necessary to obtain more education in the mechanical line; 1900 enrolled at the Chicago Manual Training School, a part of the U. of Chicago. Upon graduating he returned to the plant where he did drafting and pattern making, also filling in as assistant foreman; made superintendent 1904 and continued in that capacity until 1921 when he became assistant to his father as a designing engineer. At the death of his father, Howard became chief engineer, until he resigned in 1948; 1963 was still president of the board and consulting engineer; served as director and president of the Harvard State Bank and in 1963 was chairman of the board of directors; served for 25 years as President of the school board of Harvard Central School and held many other responsible positions in other civic groups.

(5.1.2.6.4.7.2) ELLEN AUGUSTA FERRIS (Photo) born 1847 (as per tombstone) Ashland NY and died 1913 Walton, Delaware, NY; married 1866 in Ashland, Tallman Charles Bookout (Bookhout) [son of William & Lucy Caroline (Hull) Bookhout] (Bookhout as per tombstone) born November 24, 1841 in Roxbury, Delaware, NY and died 1909 Delaware Co NY; buried Walton Cemetery (Photos).  Tallman was a Civil War Vet – discharged July 8, 1864 – member of GAR Post 209. He for many years was identified with the agricultural element of Walton NY and in the pursuit of his chosen occupation amassed a competence. He was a man of great energy, enterprise and financial ability and occupied an important position among the successful and influential businessmen of Walton. He had a liberal education. At the first call for troops he enlisted in defense of his country in Company I, 72nd NY Volunteer Infantry, being the first volunteer from his town. With his regiment he served in Sicles's Brigade, and was active and courageous participant in many of the most important and decisive engagements of the Rebellion among the earlier ones being the siege of Yorktown, Battles of Williamsburg, Fair Oaks, Seven Pines, and the Peninsular Campaign. He was stricken with fever and sent to the David Island Hospital NY where he remained 5 months. Here joined his regiment at Brandy Station VA and was attached to General Hancock's corps at the battle of the Wilderness, but during the 2nd days fight was wounded and left for dead on the field of battle, which, says   Draper, "was throbbing with the wound". He was wounded in the left shoulder and left eye, the ball striking his gun and being shattered, 3 pieces entering his body. He was a courageous soldier and expert marksman and in relating the history of army life often says that, if every Union man had killed as many of his adversaries as he did there would not have been a rebel left to tell his side of the conflict. Among his victims was the rebel who killed the major of his regiment, he shot him 6 times before killing him and being shot at the same number of times by his opponent. He was subsequently sent to the hospital at Fredericksburg, narrowly escaping capture on the way thither. This was within 15 days of the time for the expiration of his term of enlistment, and he was offered a furlough, he proceeded as far as Washington on his way home, but his patriotic impulses were in the ascendant, and he returned to Fredericksburg, starting on foot with hope in striking a train. Arriving at Fredericksburg, he found himself in the rear of Grants Army and followed with his own regiment, which he joined in Cold Harbor. He went into the midst of the fray at that place with his arm in a sling and without fire-arms, but soon procured the latter from the body of a dead comrade. He did heroic duty with his uninjured arm, probably firing as many effective shots as others with the use of both. He next went with his company to Ream's Station at Bermuda Hundred and was subsequently at the siege of Petersburg, this being after his term of service had expired. He was also in the engagement at Weldon Railroad, afterward retiring from active duty, and returned home July 8th 1864. His wound was very painful and gave him much trouble, not healing for more than a year and costing him about $150.00. In 1893, he retired his farm labors and removed into the Village of Walton, where he enjoyed the pleasant leisure to which his previous years of toil entitled him. In politics he was a firm adherent of the Republican party and although not a politician was deeply interested in local and national matters. He belonged to Ben Marvin Post #209, Grand Army of the Republic and was prominent in the Masonic Circles. Born to them were:

HENRY CLAY FERRIS IS RIGHT METTLE FOR SHERIFF JOB

Record As Under-Sheriff Shows His Fitness For Promotion

At the time when gangsters of lesser fame have a way of casually taking leave of prisons of far greater strength and man-power than the Greene County Jail, the man who was second in command of the jail which safely incarcerated eight of the vicious metropolitan Coll gang and three of the slicker Diamond racket men at the same time, may be expected to rate certain recognition at the polls when the ballots are counted in the election of a new Sheriff next month. Since the law forbids the re-election of Sheriff it is the opinion of responsible observers throughout the county that Henry Clay Ferris, undersheriff, upon whom a large share of the responsibility fell in the hectic days of Greene County's own war on crime, is a man keyed to his job and trained in his apprenticeship to the emergencies of the post. It is revealing to note that two of the Vincent Coll hoodlums, transferred to Eastview penitentiary in Westchester county, after entering pleas of guilty here, escaped from there. One, after capture, departed the second time and the other is still at liberty since his first walkout. But artists though they were in the disappearing act, as events proved, neither they nor any other prisoner committed to the sheriff's office during the present administration has departed informally, in spite of the fact that the jail structure itself has been known to be unconfining to prisoners under circumstances of less vigilence. Mr. Ferris aided in the arrest of Jack Diamond in the opening round of the Governor Parks kidnapping case and a few months later was called "to clean up the muss at Aratoga Inn," as Mr. Ferris puts it, after the second shooting of the dapper gangster. These references barely reflect the highlights in a two-year career crowded with duties more perilous and trying than the officers of any previous administration in the history of law and order preservation in Greene County have faced.  It is for this that a Sheriff is selected. And when satisfactory execution of such duties is coupled with the most economical conduct of the office in the experience of the county, little more can be hoped in a man's qualifications for promotion. Worthy of note, too, is the business-like air which has pervaded the sheriff's office, which  in times previous has been known as something of a rendeavous for hangers-on.  In the execution of the civil duties of this office Mr. Ferris points with pride to his satisfactory relations with all with whom he has dealt during the last two years.  "If I win in this election I will do no different," Mr. Ferris pledged himself in undertaking the campaign.  "I have no other business engagements and am free to devote my whole time to the business of the people of the county. I promise my very best in service."  Periodical reports of the State Commission of Correction have been increasingly commendatory in relation to the conduct and maintenance of the jail, the repeated criticism of the housing of village prisoners in the county institution merely redounding to the credit of the administration which is charged with that much more responsibility, Mr. Ferris, like Sheriff Harold R. Every, declares that in the interests of economy, he will assume day and night responsibility for prisoners except for the three months in the summer when it has been found advisable to maintain a night jailer because of the increased calls upon the Sheriff's staff. Born in Ashland, Mr. Ferris was the first supervisor of the town to serve three consecutive terms, and during that period, 1912-18, accomplished construction of the state road from Prattsville to Ashland.  His father Clinton Ferris, had served two terms in the Board of Supervisors and was for many years a Republican county committeeman.  The man who aspires to be the next Sheriff of Greene county has had a varied career as farmer, a foreman for seven years of the

Breakstone & Levine Creamery in Prattsville and a year on a Nebraska ranch. He proudly claims membership in Mountain Lodge No. 259, F. & A. M., and Athabasca Tribe of Red Men at Catskill. NOTE: Henry Clay Ferris born 31 Aug 1885 and married Mina F. Martin. He was a son of Clinton D. and Maggie C. Stewart Ferris, the son of Dennis Alden & Sarah Frisbie Ferris who was a son of Nathaniel & Nancy Goodyear Ferris who was a son of Gilbert and Phoebe Austin Ferris of Sutton Hollow, Ashland, NY of whom the typist of this article also descends.  Annette Campbell

Thomas arrived in this country when he was about 6 months old with his parents and siblings. He stayed with his family until he was past his majority, when he joined his brother Samuel, who had engaged in tanning, in Herkimer County, where he remained for 3 years, when he returned to Ashland, married Angeline, and purchased his father’s farm and engaged in farming. There he remained until about 1855, when he moved to North Settlement, on the farm near the church, where he continued to reside until about 1869, when he purchased the 700-acre farm of Col. George Robertson above Union Society. He resided there until about 1890, when he moved to Windham into the home of his father. About two years later the Robertson farm was traded for Brooklyn residential property, which the deceased successfully managed, and it remains as part of the large estate owned by the deceased. Mr. Branaugh was a man of large frame, with an iron constitution. He was accommodating, kind to his neighbors, and willing always to lend a helping hand. In 1893 he represented the town of Windham in the Board of Supervisors, with the same good judgment and care he always used in his own business. “The death of the wife of Supervisor Thomas Branaugh removes a very estimable wife and mother. She had been a very great sufferer for some months, but bore all with quiet patience”. Born to them were:

MISS JOSEPHINE BRANAUGH DIES AT HER WINDHAM RESIDENCE

The death, last Wednesday, April 7, of Miss Josephine Branaugh, the daughter of the late Thomas and Angeline (Ferris) Branaugh, marks the closing of the earthly existence of another of Windham's lifelong residents. For several months she had been in declining health, suffering with a heart ailment. Miss Branaugh born when her parents resided on their North Settlement farm, now owned by Mrs. Julia Johnson. While yet she was a young girl, the family moved to what for many years was known as the Branaugh Farm east of Brooksburg. During her young womanhood her parents purchased and took up their residence on the property, lower Main St. Windham, where they spent their remaining years. The subject of this sketch will be kindly remembered by her neighbors and friends throughout her native town and by those who each summer were sojourners at Cedar Lawn Farm. They admired her for her various traits of character which she displayed in a modest yet thoroughly sincere manner. Her charitable ministrations, which were many and enhanced by her spirit of willingness and courtesy, will be missed. Her natural gifts were moulded by those attributes which are given by the full development of a wholesome natural life. Hers was an unassuming manner, her influence was for good. She possessed a feeling of tenderness for others in their trials and misfortunes. Her self-oblivion, her happiness with her home and the love for those who shared it with her, were prominent in her life. The funeral of Miss Branaugh was conducted from the house on Monday afternoon at two o'clock, interment was in Pleasant Valley cemetery. The Rev. C. F. Robson of the Windham Presbyterian church conducted the services, speaking very fittingly from John, 11:25. "I am the resurrection and the life." A quartette from the choir of that church rendered two appropriate hymns. The floral tributes were beautiful and in profusion. Henry Branaugh, a brother of the deceased, his son, Birdsall, and his daughter, Miss Dora, are the immediate survivors. Besides these there are many other relatives and friends.

He weathered the crisis with hard work, and later owed just $800.00, which he’s about to pay, as he had marketed 800 bushels of grain to a dealer in Cohocton. When the grain was all hauled, he asked the dealer for his pay, he dealer had taken bankruptcy, and would not even trust Henry to a pound of tea. Again he thought he would lose his farms. But, he was honest, hard working man, so his credit was good and he was allowed time to pay it.

Notes from Annette (Myers) Campbell in her words: “Clista was 75 years old when I born. She died when I was almost 10 years old and I remember her like it was yesterday. She was so sweet and kind to everyone. Granny, as I called her always had to have the same plate, which was white ironstone with a blue-checkered border for her meals, and the silverware had her initial C on it. She never wore any new clothing that was given to her as a gift and when she died it was all packed neatly in her truck. In her trunk, which was a small domed steamer one, she had many letters she had saved from friends and family. I had no idea what became of them, probably thrown away. It would sure be nice to have them now. Granny had a large old wooden rocking chair that I have a picture of her sitting in. When she died it was donated to her daughters church for the ladies to rock their babies in. Home canning was one of the things she liked to do every summer until everything in the large acre garden we had was in a jar. She would at age 84 get up a 5 am to split some kindling for the small wood stove we had in the kitchen. You see, Granny, Grandma & Grandpa Myers, my Dad Emery & Mom Eleanor as well as my brother Ted and myself along with our Dalmatian dog Zenda and always a cat, lived together in one house in Curtis NY beside the bank of the Cohocton River when she died. The only one of her sisters that I knew was Ida, who lived in the old hotel on Main Street in Stephens Mills NY along with her husband Uncle Fred Gesner. Their only child Bennett and his family lived next door to them. We would take her there quite often for a visit. Aunt Ida was a very pleasant, tall, thin woman and Uncle Fred was a joker most of the time. He would use his cane crook around my neck and pull me toward him, which I thought was very funny. Granny’s sister Laura had died before I born but her daughter Eva used to come to our house at least once a year to visit, sometimes for a few days at a time and I grew to love her a lot. Her son Norman would sometimes bring her on a short visit. She was a beautiful lady in manner as well as looks. Her hair was a stunning white and she dressed very well. She looked much like her mother as I can see from photos that I have. Aunt Roxy, Granny’s twin sister died 1926 and I never knew any of her family. I would love to find some track of her grandson Clyde House’s family. He would have been born about 1910 I believe in Alberta, Canada. Clyde and his mother later moved to Anten Mills, Ontario, Canada. I have a postcard dated 1913 from his mother Anna with him sitting backwards on a mule with another small child in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. Uncle Jerry House died about 1941/42 before I born. They had a double stone in Mitchellville Cemetery, but as the welfare took him to Avoca to be buried in Highland Cemetery, they did not lie together. The four Ferris Girls were a family to be very proud of.”  Born to Clista and Emery was:

A high wind was blowing at the time.  Almond firemen assisted by about 50 volunteers carried most of the furniture from the first floor and kept the flames from spreading to adjacent buildings.  A large barn, 100 feet from the house was saved by their diligent efforts.  The home was located on Maple Ridge, opposite the Erie depot.  All the second floor and cellar contents were destroyed.  The house was partially covered by insurance, and the contents fully covered.

(5.1.2.7.2.2.3.1.2) JUDSON ASPINWALL PARSONS born October 21, 1886 Troy PA; Yale 1909; from the Yale 5th Year Reunion Book: “The last two years I’ve spent at Harvard Law School and am now in the office mentioned above (Clerk with Kenefick, Cooke, Mitchell, & Bass, lawyers, Buffalo). In another year I hope to be admitted to the bar. The first three years out of college I taught school. Life in general is very much worth while and steadily becoming more so. It seems to me that the ministers and teachers must have the best time because their workis to watch other people grow and help in the process. For the ordinary man who goes into something else it’s a bit jolting to have the fact thoroughly impressed that you are only an ordinary man and maybe you’ve got to hustle to be a good ordinary man. Every time I go past the news stand down at the Ellicott Square and can afford the luxury, I buy a New York Evening Post and wonder what you’re doing about it. Buffalo has no few 1909 men that one more would be necessary to have any kind of a Class reunion. A man at Harvard is more free to follow his natural bent than a man at Yale. If he is a genius, this is all right, but if he’s a little queer at the beginning, he’s more queer at the end. Yale demands a certain type, and in producing it, may now and then stunt the hair of a Paderewski, but it seems to me her great work is to take apparently unpromising young fellows and in place of their little oddities put some Yale ideals and make them work so hard for these ideals that the oddities disappear, and after a few years out, the results are successful name men. I think Yale is doing a bigger work than Harvard.”

I am not one of the pioneers. There were Congregational churches in Nebraska ten years before I came. I attended the meeting of the State Association of Congregational Churches at Fontanelle in September 1866. The ministeres and delegates attending that meeting were in all thirteen. None of them are now living but myself. At that time I was elected stated clerk, and the minutes of the association were printed that year, I think for the first time. At the same meeting I was elected a trustee of the Nebraska University, the first school of high order which the Congregationalists of Nebraska undertook to sustain. At the meeting of the board of trustees I was elected secretary of the board and clerk of the executive committee. I kept the records of said institution while it lasted. Said records can be found among the archives of Doane College.” *Congregational Nebraska, 1905

Compiled by Colonel Charles V. DeLand, "DeLand's History of Jackson County, Michigan," (B. F. Bowen, 1903), Edmund Ferris biography, pp 646-648. It is with distinctive gratification that we incorporate in this volume a memoir of this honored pioneer of Jackson County, for his name is held in lasting regard by all who knew him or have cognizance of his worthy and useful life. Edmund Ferris was a native of the state of New York, having been born in the town of Genoa, Cayuga county, on the 23rd of December, 1805, and being a son of James Armour and Annie (Brown) Ferris, the former of whom was born in Greenwich, Connecticut, on the 13th of January, 1778, while the latter was born in the same town in Connecticut on the 21st of January, 1780.  She entered into eternal rest on the 9th of March, 1843, while her husband passed away on the 11th of September, 1863.  In the year 1793 James A Ferris, in company with his parents, five brothers and one sister, emigrated from Connecticut to Cayuga County, New York, the family taking up their abode in the village of Genoa, where he was reared to manhood and where his marriage was solemnized, his wife's parents having likewise been early settlers of that county.  This worthy couple became the parents of eight children, namely: Ann, Elizabeth, Lewis, Deborah, Edmund, Lucretia, Calista and Augustus.  The original progenitor of the Ferris family in America was Jeffere Ferris, who came from England and settled in Greenwich, Connecticut, in the year 1640.  He was a descendant of Henir de Ferriers, a Norman, who obtained from William the Conqueror large land grants in Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire, England.

Edmund Ferris, subject of this memoir, was reared and educated in his native town, and there was solemnized, of the 8th of April, 1834, his marriage to Miss Catherine Brown, who was born in Chester county, Pennsylvania, on the 26th of June, 1808, and in 1816 her parents emigrated thence to Cayuga county, New York, taking up their residence in the village of Genoa, where she was reared to maturity.  Her father, William Brown, was born September 21, 1767, and his death occurred on the 24th of September, 1833.  His wife, whose maiden name was Catherine Jones, was a resident of the city of Philadelphia at the time of their marriage, which occurred in the year 1800.  She died on the 14th of February, 1831.  Their children were as follows: Mary Ann, Joannah, William, Catherine, Elizabeth, Jane, Rebecka, Lydia and Sarah. In the year 1837, Edmund Ferris removed with his family from the old home in New York to Springport, Jackson County, Michigan, where he became a pioneer farmer and a man of influence in the community, here continuing to reside until his death, which occurred on the 10th of October, 1885.  In the connection, the following is from an obituary notice published at the time of his demise: "Edmund Ferris, an old and retired resident of this township, died at noon on Saturday, October 10, 1885.  The deceased was born in the town of Genoa, Cayuga county, New York, December 23, 1805, and he came to Springport township in the fall of 1836, locating the west half of section 20, where he reside at the time of his death, although he disposed of a part of the original farm, upon which the village of Springport is now located, and purchased other tracts of land.  He wrought out a large and valuable farm.  His first labor here was to assist in building the Mallory saw-mill, on Spring brook, this being the first manufacturing concern of any description in the township.  He built the first house with the limits of Springport, near the present site of Mrs. Fitzgerald's residence, and was obliged to walk four miles morning and evening, to his nearest available boarding place, the home of Herman Landon.  The dismal howl of the wolf often followed him on his solitary walks through the forest and proved an unpleasant accompaniment.  He was a man of sterling integrity and assisted in the organization of the township, in 1838, and he held at various times all the places of honor and trust in the power of his fellow townsmen to confer upon him.  A widow and several grown sons and daughters survive him.  One of his sons Edward J. was a soldier in the war of the Rebellion and died in the notorious Libby prison pen.  The funeral of this honored pioneer too place at the family home at one o'clock Monday afternoon, October 12, Rev. H. P. Henderson delivering a very appreciative address, from Ecclesiastes, ninth chapter and fifth verse."

 In the ensuing paragraphs we make brief mention of the other representatives of the Ferris family who became prominently identified with the history of Jackson County.  Alanson Ferris was one of the early pioneers of Springport Township.  He was born in Genoa, Cayuga County, New York, on the 13th of December, 1814.  His father, Lemuel Ferris, accompanied his parents Greenwich, Connecticut, to Genoa in 1793, and in that locality settled upon a farm, which continued to be his home during the remainder of his life.  On the 4th of March, 1840, Alanson Ferris was united in marriage to Miss Olivia Leavenworth, who was born in the same township in Cayuga County, New York, on the 9th of May, 1810.  In 1842 Mr. Ferris came to Jackson County and located on the farm in Springport Township, which continued to be his place of abode until he was summoned into the life eternal, his death occurring on the 24th of January, 1898, while his devoted wife had passed away on the 10th of November, 1890.  They became the parents of four children, concerning whom we make a brief record as follows: Henry, who was born on the 17th of August, 1841, died on the 30th of July, 1846; Adeline, who was born on the 30th of May 1845, was married to Oscar Smith, September 12, 1866, and her death occurred on the 27th of September, 1882, while she is survived by three children, Henry, Lillie and Rollin; Hiram L. Ferris, who was born on the 9th of February, 1849, married Miss Ida St. Johns, of Ohio, and they are now residents of the state of Kansas; John who was born February1, 1852, married Miss Rose Paine, of Springport township, and they now reside at Big Rapids, Michigan.  Mr. and Mrs. Ferris were folk of noble character and in their sterling qualities of character afforded an example well worthy of emulation by succeesing generations.  They celebrated their golden anniversary in 1890, and Mrs. Ferris' death occurred only a few months later in the same year.  Augustus Ferris Gaylord, son of Lucius and Ann (Ferris) Gaylord, was born in Aurora, Cayuga County, New York, on the 11th of June 1806, and on the 2d of January, 1828, he was married to Lucretia Ferris, daughter of James A Ferris.  He came to Michigan in the company of his father in 1835, and located twenty-seven and one-half lots in what is now the village of Springport, Jackson County.  He then returned to New York, but in 1836 came again and here tarried several months, preparing for the removal of his family to the new home in the following spring.  Lewis (Augustus?) and Edmund Ferris, his brother-in-law, came on in the summer and purchased of him a portion of the land which he has secured, and Edmund Ferris moved hither with his family in 1837, as has been previously noted in this sketch.  Mr. Gaylord brought his wife and four daughters from the old home in New York to the veritable wilderness of Jackson County in the spring of the same year, and here he began in a literal sense to hew out a home in the midst of the virgin forest.  He built a house in what is now the northeast corner of the village of Springport, and there the family resided for several years.  In 1843 he exchanged these lands with John and William Oyer for a tract of land one-half mile north of the village, the farm is now owned by William Brancroft.  He was the father of eight daughters and one son, the latter being the youngest of the family and dying at the age of two and one-half years.  Mr. Gaylord removed with his family to Battle Creek, Calhoun County, in 1852, and there his wife died on the 15th of January, 1856.  On the 23rd of April, 1857, he married Miss Maryette Beebe, and in 1865 he removed to Eaton county, thereafter residing in Eaton Rapids and vicinity until his death, which occurred on the 15th of July 1888.  He was appointed postmaster of Springport in 1838 and retained this office until the time of his removal to Battle Creek.

He had a growth on the brain from which he is said to have suffered severe pain at times. During his illness, his son, Steven Barger, has been in charge of the jewelry store. Mr. Barger born in Oregon Putnam County, on March 8, 1881, the son of Allen Barger Sr. and Catherine A. Tompkins. When he was about six months old the family moved to Peekskill and here he resided ever since. He attended the Oakside School, beginning when he was eight years of age. He continued school until he was 16 years old, when he left to enter the employ of P.A. Peterson, jewelry, 924 South Street, at the same location where his present store is located. As Mr. Barger often explained it, he accepted a "job" and got a position because he worked for the small salary of $3.00 a week at first. During his early days in the jewelry business, jewelers made all the wedding rings by hand as well as the old style cable watch chains and lockets. He remained in the employ of Mr. Peterson until the latter sold out, three and one-half years later to the Robert Valentine, of North James Street. Mr. Barger continued in the employ until Mr. Valentine's death in 1920 when he managed the business to Oct. 1921, and then purchased it. In Nov. 1934, when Dr. Frank P. Tompkins, optometrist moved from the Barger store to the Medical Arts Building, Mr. Barger renovated and enlarged his store giving him considerable more floor space. Mr. Barger was a member of the Harmony Lodge No. 133 Knights of Pythias, having joined it in 1902. He held a number of minor offices there and was Chancellor in 1907. Two years later he was chosen District Deputy Grand Chancellor for the district. Ever since then his interest in the order has resulted in his holding offices in that lodge. He was also a member of Harmony Temple No. 29 Pythian Sisters, the women's auxiliary of the order. He was a member of Delancy Cole Camp No 78. Sons of Veterans, for many years and served as its treasurer. He was adopted into Bald Eagle Tribe No 264 Improved Order of Red Men in Dec. 1917 and served through its chairs and became Sachem of the Tribe. He was a member of Cortlandt Hook & Ladder Co. No. 1 of the Peekskill Merchants Association and also of the Peekskill Rotary Club. He was elected Village Trustee in 1929 and served to 1932 when he resigned declining a re-nomination. He also served a number of years as Town Auditor of the town of Cortlandt and at one time was Registrar of the Vital Statistics. He was a member of the Van Nest Reformed church. Mr. Barger was an ardent fisherman and this was one of his hobbies outside of his membership in the Rotary Club. On Nov. 3rd, 1909 he married Flossie James, daughter of John C. James of Lake Mohegan.

Obituary, Putnam Courier, Carmel, NY, Sept. 28, 1928: Cortlandt Christian, supervisor and republican leader of the town of Putnam Valley, died at his home on Oscawana Heights, about 8:30 yesterday morning, Sept. 27, 1928, of heart trouble from which he had been a sufferer for about a year. Death came to the well known resident while sitting in a chair following a night during which he had difficulty at times to breathe. Supervisor Christian suffered a severe attack with his heart last January, which confined him to his home for several weeks. During the spring and summer he was greatly improved and active with his general store and farm activities as well as his official duties. About three weeks ago he suffered another attack from which he did not recover. The deceased was a son of James and Sarah Nichols Christian and born near the home in which he died, about 61 years ago. He was reared on a farm and followed that occupation all his life, dealing extensively in horses and cattle for some years. About 35 years ago he opened a general store at Oscawana Heights which he has conducted continuously since then and he also opened a store on the shore of Oscawana Lake a few years ago to supply campers and cottagers at the east side of the lake but in recent years this store has been rented. Mr. Christian during his lifetime acquired considerable property in the vicinity of Lake Oscawana, which he held at the time of his death. Mr. Christian has always been a staunch republican and a party leader of his native town for many years. He served as assessor and tax collector of Putnam Valley for several years, as under sheriff during the term of Sheriff Joseph Barry and was a witness employed by the city of New York in some of its condemnation proceedings in the Croton watershed. Recently he had served on a state road appraisal commission and last November was elected supervisor of Putnam Valley. Mr. Christian's wife, who before her marriage was Marie Barger died about ten years ago. They had no children and surviving him are a sister, Mrs. William Silleck, of Peekskill, and one brother, William of Danbury. Mr. Christian was a man well liked by all who knew him and had made a large circle of friends during his long life Putnam Valley. News of his death reached the county seat yesterday noon and the board of supervisors adjourned out of respect to him immediately after convening yesterday and went to his home Putnam Valley. Mr. Christian attended the Tompkins Corners M.E. church although not a member and was also a member of the Shrub Oak Lodge of Odd Fellows.  Interment will be made in the family plot in the Hillside cemetery.

(5.1.2.9.3.2.4) SUSAN PURDY (c1842-) married 1870 Eugene Beauharnais Travis [son of Dr. Albert Gallatin Travis and Sarah Jane (Satterlee) born September 22, 1844 Kent NY and died November 13, 1908; both buried Hillside Cemetery, Peekskill NY. Obituary, Highland Democrat, Peekskill, NY, Nov. 14, 1908:  Eugene B. Travis, Peekskill's well known lawyer, dropped dead on the porch of the Holman house at Van Cortlandtville yesterday (Friday) morning. He left his house about 9 o'clock and walked to the corner of Hillside Avenue to take the trolley for Peekskill, according to his daily custom. He was apparently in his usual health. Waren W. Dyckman, the surveyor, was working in that neighborhood. A farmer passing in a wagon notified him that a man had just fallen down on Holman's porch. Dyckman went to the spot and found Mr. Travis, who had fallen forward on his face. A copy of his horse's pedigree and a book lay on the porch. It is supposed he had to wait for a car and had stepped on the porch to avoid the severe wind that was blowing. Mr. Dyckman notified Coroner Silleck at once. The coroner went to the scene and had the body removed to Croft's undertaking establishment. Dr. P. H. Mason made an examination and pronounced the cause of death as apoplexy. No arrangements for the funeral have yet been made. Eugene Beauharnais Travis born in Kent, Putnam County NY September 22, 1844. His father was Dr. Albert Gallatin Travis, a well and favorably known physician in that locality in those days. His mother was Sarah Jane, the youngest daughter of Judge Satterlee, of Putnam County. There were two others brothers-Francis Marian, who went to New London, Va., thirty years ago, and who is still there, and Millard Fillmore Travis, who settled in Florida about twenty-five years ago and is yet a resident of that State. Mr. Travis received his early education at the Red Mills Academy and studying long and faithfully at home soon found himself well prepared to cope with the world, educationally. He began teaching in Putnam County and continued in that honorable profession for seven years. Meantime the law appealed to him and he began the study of Blackstone under such noted jurists as J.G. Miller, of Carmel; David Wiley Travis, of Peekskill, and Edward Wells, of Peekskill. He was admitted to the bar in Brooklyn, Dec. 15, 1870. Since that time he had practiced law in Peekskill and was in point of service as well as age one of Peekskill's oldest attorneys. For many years he had his office at the corner of Main and Division streets, but more recently in the Eagle Hotel building, Main Street. Mr. Travis, while he was an all around lawyer, had been exceptionally successful in the trial of jury cases, and when he failed to secure a verdict it was the exception rather than the rule. His appearance before the jury, especially in the summing up, was always the signal for the most careful attention, because it was known that something good would be heard. Mr. Travis was quite a fraternity man. He was a member of Phillipstown Lodge, No. 236 F. & A.M. of Cold Spring, in which he was raised June 4, 1896. He was a very enthusiastic Mason. He joined Harmony Lodge No. 138 K. of P., fifteen years ago and has always been active in lodge work, though never passing through the chairs. He had been a member of the Cortlandt Lodge No. 6, I.O.O.F., for thirty-nine years. His favorite fraternity was the Ancient Order of United Workmen. He organized Dunderberg Lodge, No. 156, A.O.U.W., in 1878. He was its first Past Master and took an active interest in it from the start. He was its first representative to the Grand Lodge and there became at once equally influential. The first year he was elected to the Grand Overseer's chair, three stations from the highest. In due time he was Grand Master of the Ancient Order of United Workmen of the State of New York. Three times he was one of the three New York Grand Lodge representatives to the Supreme Grand Lodge, meeting at Toronto, can.; Detroit, Mich., and Nashville, Tenn., consecutively. Unlike many fraternity men, who having achieved the honors, drop down and out, he kept up his interest in the ranks as he did in the line. Rather, his zeal for the Workmen increased and he was as busy in the local lodge and in the annual sessions of the Grand Lodge of late years as he was when he held high office. He was also a member of the Lincoln Society and of its executive committee; also an honorary member of the Survivors Association of the Harris Light Cavalry  (Second New York), and when they dedicated and unveilied a monument on the field of Gettysburg, Sept. 19, 1892, it was Eugene B. Travis who was selected to deliver the oration. His address at that time was well worthy the commendation it received. Mr. Travis was quite a fireman in his earlier years. He joined Cortlandt Hook & Ladder Co. No. 1, May 2, 1878, but resigned the same year. He became a member of Cul. Engine Co. No. 1, Dec. 6, 1878. He was a member of Peekskill Lodge, No.744, B.P.O. Elks, and at its memoral service, Dec. 1903, he delivered the memorial address in the Colonial Theatre. He was a member of the Westchester County Bar Association and was very active in its work. Every year he was on some important committee; he seldom missed one of its annual dinners and was a frequent speaker there. He was very active in educational work. He was for many years a trustee in the Van Cortlandtville School and not only attended the commencements, but there was hardly a week that went by but he was at the school looking after its interests, encouraging its teacher and its scholars. He gave prizes and awarded honors, and the Van Cortlandtville School lost a dear friend in the death of Eugene B. Travis. Politically, Eugene B. Travis was as well known as he was fraternally and professionally. Born and bred a Democrat, he was carried into the Republican Party like many others during the Civil War. In 1876 he was a candidate of that party against Owen T. Coffin for the office of Surrogate of Westchester County, but with the party was defeated, Mr. Coffin's majority being 2, 865. In the town election on March 27, 1877, he ran on his party ticket for Commissioner of Highways against William Hickey and was elected by the handsome majority of 245, Hickey receiving 837 votes and Travis 1, 082 in the town of Cortlandt. In 1885 he ran for Commissioner of Highways against Adolph Tompkins and was defeated by 267, receiving 1,135 to 1,314 for Mr. Tompkins. The following year he was the Democratic nominee for Member of Assembly in this Third Assembly District. He made a good run and received 3, 083 votes. In 1896 he received in Liberty Hall the unanimous nomination for Member of Congress on the regular Democratic ticket. He made a gallant fight, but was handicapped by the candidacy of Crawford, who ran on the Gold Democratic ticket, and by McKinley's marvelous run. Travis received 12,005 votes and William M. Ward 17,988, a majority of 5,983. He served very creditably a term as Corporation Counsel several years ago, when the Board of Village Trustees was Democratic. In the fall of 1905 he was a candidate for Supervisor of the town of Cortlandt against S. Fletcher Allen, who defeated him by 907. The vote was, Allen 2,208, Travis 1,301. He has also taken an active interest in the party. He had attended scores of conventions, village, town, county, assembly, district, senatorial, congressional, judicial and state. He had been on the stump, where he was a most effective and convincing political orator. In 1884 he stumped the western part of the State under the auspices of the State Committee. He was a good personal canvasser and never left a stone unturned to be elected in an honorable manner to any office to which he was nominated. During the recent campaign he was an ardent Bryan and Chanler enthusiast and stumped Putnam County for the ticket. Mr. Travis was very fond of legitimate sports. He played a good game of chess and was the president of the Peekskill Chess Club when it was in its greatest prosperity. He was a clever billiard player. When he had reached the age where he could not circuit the bases of the diamond very well, there was no greater enthusiast in baseball than he. Peekskill fans all knew that it was for him the once famous Travis Baseball Nine was named, and in those days Mr. Travis would rather watch his beloved club play the game of all games than eat a meal. e was also an admirer of horses, and up at his Gallows Hill place he had been breeding high class road horses. He had owned Tyrant, a son of Dictator; Clay, a son of Electioneer; St. Arnold, the son of Cuyler, and so on. For many years he resided on Smith street, but for the past twenty years he lived on a spacious and beautiful farm up on the historical Gallows Hill, where hundreds of veterans, firemen, Sunday school children and others had enjoyed his hospitality in clambakes, reunions, picnics, etc.  Mr. Travis married in 1870, Susan the daughter of Nicholas Purdy. They had two children, both living-Thurlow and Leila, the latter the wife of Welford Croft, both of Peekskill. Mr. Travis personality was very striking. He stood tall, broad shouldered and with a distinguished military air. His white locks and white mustache and his equipoise at all times distinguished him among others, either on the street or on the stage or in the public hall. He was a fine looking man, and wherever he went was the cynosure of all eyes. He was a charming conversationalist, a good storyteller, a strong public speaker. He was a delightful companion and had made many friends not only in this section, but all over the State. Born to them were:
