1351 Welthian Loring family notes
Thomas Richards and Welthian Loring

Thomas and Welthian came to America in 1633 on the "Mary and John", first living in Dorchester, Massachusetts, where Thomas was selectman in 1633. They moved to Weymouth, Massachusetts in 1639 where Thomas was admitted freeman in May 1640. He returned to England in 1640, 1646, and 1649, and perhaps on other occasions. Welthian was probably the sister of Thomas Loring, whom Thomas called "brother" in his will.

After Thomas' death, Welthian moved to Boston in 1651 where "she was evidently treated as one of the aristocracy."

"In 1653/4 Welthian was threatened with the charge of witchcraft, having in the heat of passion threatened terrible things would happen to those she was angered at, they later falling victim to various unpleasant fates. Thomas Thacher, writing in her behalf to John Wilson and others from Weymouth 27 February 1653/4, indicated that she took Christian care of her children". Welthian brought her maid Edye White to John Winthrop for correction. Among the charges against the maid was that she was "discovering the secrets of the family, one thing she confessed about a maid that drank too much there". In her will she bequeathed to granddaughter "Mary Bradford I leave the worst of my three feather beds."

Welthian Loring: Will: 03 July 1679

"Welthean Richards of Boston ..., widow," bequeathed to "my eldest son John Richards all that my dwelling house and land adjoining scituate in Boston," along with 300 of mine which has been in his hands; to "my son James Richards" 250 of mine which has been in my hands; to Thomas Bradford 5, to Alice Bradford 60, to Hannah Bradford 40; to Mercy Bradford 10, to William Bradford Jr. 20, to John Bradford 10, to Samuel Bradford 5, to Melatiah Bradford 5, to Mary Bradford 5, to Sarah Bradford 5, "these ten above last named being children of William Bradford of Plimouth Colony and my daughter Alice deceased"; to Samuel Hinckley 20, to Thomas Hinckley Jr. 30, to Sarah Bacon 10, to Hannah Glover 5, to Mellatiah Crocker 5, to Bathshua Hinckley 5, to Mehitable Hinckley 5, to Mary Wyborne 5, "these eight last mentioned being children of Thomas Hinckly of Plimouth Colony and my daughter Mary deceased"; to Ephraim Hunt and John Hunt, "sons to Ephraim hunt Sr. of Weymoth and my late daughter Anne," 5 apiece; to "the daughter of Mary Wiborne abovesaid 5, and to her son 10; to the son of Hannah Glover 5; to John Bradford's two children 5 each; to Samuel Hinckley's child 5; to Sarah Bacon's two children 5 each; to "my son James's six children" 20s. apiece; to Thomas Hunt's two children 5 apiece; "more to Alice and Hannah Bradford 5 each to put them in mourning at my funeral"; various philanthropic bequests and bequests of household goods to some of the children and grandchildren named above; "my loving son John Richards to be sole executor and residuary legatee

Richard Scott "of Boxsted, county Suffolk, England, was probably born about 1476, presumably at Glemsford, where his father was living when he died in 1498. Since his father named him executor of his will, he was probably of age, but certainly not far from it. Richard inherited lands in Glemsford, Boxsted, Cavendish, Somerton and Hawkendon, all parishes near Glemsford. He apparently settled on the Boxsted property, for Boxsted was his residence when he made his will, in which he bequeathed his house and lands in Boxsted and Somerton. Richard died probably in April, 1560. There is no burial record for him in the Boxsted parish register, nor in Glemsford. There was another Richard Scott living in Boxsted at this time. He and his wife, Agnes, were buried there on 12 June 1561. This other Richard Scott was probably quite a bit younger and perhaps a cousin. [An abstract of Richard Scott's will appears here.]

"In his will, there are some errors or contradictions which are explained only with difficulty. He named his grandchildren Joan and Dorothy Scott. These were the youngest children, twins, of his son Richard. Of all the Scotts in the area, this was the only Dorothy on record, so there can be little doubt that these twins were the ones he was naming. [p. 110] However, Joan died at age 4 months, just a year before the date on his will. Was he unaware of the death of this grandchild? Perhaps he was old and forgetful, and no one had the heart to tell him? Also, he bequeathed to his son William, who had died four months before the date of his will. Was he unaware that his son was gone? Probably the will had been roughed out between February and May 1558, after the birth of the twins and before Joan died and while his son William was still living. Then, just before he died, it was completed and witnessed, no attempt having been made to modify it accordingly. It must be borne in mind that he was probably illiterate, and those helping in the matter knew little about his family. There were two other William Scotts living nearby; first cousins to his son William. Could there be confusion between them? This seems unlikely, for his son William in his will dated 16 January 1558/9 named his brother Richard to be executor. The two cousins had no brother Richard, hence the testator, William, was Richard's son. Also witnessing the will was brother Richard's son, Richard. Indeed, this brother Richard had a son, Richard, which further helps to identify the relationships. This son Richard, however, had to have been a minor. At that time, minors did now and then witness documents. Thus, these puzzling things seem to cast a shadow of doubt. Yet, no other relationship can be deduced."

1357 Will dated 6 Feb 1609

"JOHN FROST of Glemsford and Hartest, Suffolk, England, was born about 1530-35. He was a clothier as we can infer from his will. On 29 January 1558/9 at Glemsford, he married Ann Scott. She was the daughter of Richard Scott of Glemsford, also a clothier. Sometime after the birth of their last child, they moved to Hartest, the next village. There, on 30 July 1588, Anne, wife of John Frost, was buried. John Frost remarried, for when he died, he left a widow named Ellen. He died and was buried at Hartest 6 February 1609/10. His will, apparently a nuncipative one, was dated the same day he was buried, so we can assume he also died that day." An abstract of John Frost's will follows.

"WILLIAM SCOTT of Glemsford, county Suffolk, is the earliest Scott ancestor of this family who can be identified. He apparently died at a rather young age, as his son Richard outlived him by sixty two years. William was probably born about 1450. His brief will names only two sons, to whom he bequeathed his lands in seven nearby parishes, i.e. in Glemsford, Boxsted, Cavendish, Somerton, Hawkedon, Wickhambrook and Denston. No wife was mentioned, but that does not prove she was dead, considering the brevity of his will. In the 1524 Subsidy (tax) list, there was a Clemence Skot, widow, who paid 2s.6d. on property worth �5. Clemence was probably his widow. His son Thomas had a daughter named Clemence, which suggests as much. His will was dated 24 April 1498, proved 29 September following, so he died around late summer of 1498."

"WILLIAM FROST of Glemsford, county Suffolk, England, was probably born about 1495-1500. His wife was named Philippa. William died in the summer of 1549, testate. After his death, his widow remarried on 15 September 1552 at Glemsford, John Webb of Lidgate, which is about eight miles from Glemsford. He was a widower, his wife Rose having been buried at Lidgate on 11 February 1551/2. John and Philippa (-----) (Frost) Webb had a daughter, Anna, baptized in 1553, so it is apparent that Philippa was probably born after 1508. Philippa was buried at Lidgate on 20 January 1577/8 and John Webb on 25 July 1558.

Richard Scott "of Glemsford, Suffolk, was a clothier and was probably born about 1510, presumably in Glemsford, where he lived and died. His first wife, Joanna, was buried 23 August 1556. Seven weeks later, on 8 October 1556, he and Joan Tollington (or Tollerton) were married. She was the widow of Christopher Tollerton of Cavendish, whose will, dated 12 May 1556, was proved 23 September following. She apparently had a still earlier marriage, for she had a son named Andrew James, according to Richard Scott's will. This was, no doubt, the Andrew who was bequeathed 40s. and a cow by Christopher Tollerton, no surname or relationship given. Richard Scott was buried on 5 February 1564/5. He was then designated as 'senior' to distinguish him from a younger Richard Scott also living in Glemsford -- a first cousin once removed. His widow, Joan, remarried 26 September 1565 to Thomas Hayward, apparently her fourth husband." An abstract of Richard Scott's will follows.

Filed 15th March 1847
William Alexander Miller was born in Blount Co. Kentucky [actually was in Tennessee, TCM], March 24, 1804. He was a farmer and was the first Chaplain of the Missouri legislature in 1844 and 1845 at Jefferson City. He was married to Agness Chelly Mitchell January 21, 1823. To this union were born seven children as follows: Fleming Mitchell, who afterwards became a minister; the second child, Samuel Thomas ... also became a minister; and Charles Donnell .... The others were: Amanda M., George C. H., Finis A. and Robert D.

The following is a letter written by [him] while he was in the legislature:

Jefferson City, Mo.,
Dec. 15, 1844

Dear Chelly and Children,

With a heavy heart I again sit down to write to you. I am in first rate health and as comfortably situated as I can be, but Oh, my dear wife and children I can hear nothing from you. It is a good deal over a month since I left home and I have received one letter, and that written a month since. What is the matter? Do you neglect to write or are the letters miscarried? Do if you please write and do not mark free and mail them at Savanna. I fear there is negligence at Jimtown. I subscribed for the Jefferson Inquirer that you might get all the news, if any of the members are sick you will find it noticed in the papers.

If I knew you were all well it would give me more satisfaction than anything on this earth. If I had my horse here I would start home in a few days, but he is not here and I reckon I can not go. We are not doing much in the Legislature but spouting.

The members from Platte County have been together tonight several hours preparing a Bill to favor the settlers On state lands. I feel great interest in the mater but if I don't hear from home shortly I shall be of no account. Say to the people generally my heart is set on the passage of that Bill. The provisions of which are that the settlers shall have 5 years from the first of April that is $50 the first of April come a year and $50 each year thereafter without interest. I fear it will not pass but will do my best.

Mitchell, attend diligently to business. When you kill the hogs be careful in salting. I expect you had better grind the salt. Economize all you can and take good care of the stock but above everything make the family as comfortable as you can and be especially careful of fire.

Charles, be a good boy and let Mitchell manage. Sam and Mary, attend to your Mother and try to render her happy. Dock, Anse and Bob don't forget me. Be good boys obey your Mother and mind your books. If I shall live to get home to you I intend never to leave you so long again. We will not get ready to leave here before the 15th of March. My expenses will be about a dollar a day. My family shall have the benefit of my earnings. It is 11 o'clock at night everything is quiet in the City and I am left to reflections of home, home sweet home. May the Lord keep you in the hollow of his hand.

Pray for me, give my best respects to all the neighbors. This will be mailed at Sparta. I am your affectionate and loving Companion and Father.

William A. Miller.

[Editor's Note: the children's names mentioned in the third- and second-to-last paragraphs of the letter contain several nicknames, but they are indeed the children listed in the first paragraph by R. B. Miller. "Mitchell" is Fleming Mitchell Miller; "Dock" is George Culver Harte Miller; "Anse" is Finis Ansel; "Sam" and "Bob" and "Charles" are obvious. Amanda M. died in 1842 at age 13, before the letter was written. "Mary" is 18-year-old Samuel Thomas Miller's new bride, Mary Elizabeth Gibbins.]

Hayes, William (I1086)
1374 William Henrie was born about 1795 in France. (Place of birth and parents unknown). He is the great-great-great-great grandfather of Robert Earl Lee III (hereafter referenced as RELIII). In France, William met and married his wife, Marie, (RELIII great-great-great-great grandmother) in about 1823. In France they started their life together and soon a son, William Henrie, Jr. was born circa 1824. It is not known why a choice was made to come to America but by the birth of their second child in 1825, Marie Josephine (RELIII great-great-great grandmother), they were residing in New York so apparently sometime between the birth of William Henrie, Jr. and Marie Josephine, the Henries immigrated to America.

At some point in time they left New York for Prairie du Rocher, Illinois. It is not known when they left for Illinois except for the fact that Henrie, Sr. was a miller and Prairie du Rocher was a strong French community and he may have had an opportunity to start his own mill.

William Henrie and Marie had two other children. The third child was Angelique, who was born in 1828 in New York. She married Daniel G. Taylor, Sr. in Prairie du Rocher, Illinois on June 29, 1849 and she died in a steamboat accident in 1858. Their youngest child of record was Juliette who was born in 1834 in Illinois. She married Theophilus F. R. Papin on November 14, 1855 and died around 1887.

It appears the Henries lived in Prairie du Rocher at least by 1830 because William Henrie is known to have purchased a home from a Mr. MacDonald. This home, because of its unique architecture of the French style, was later put on the historic register with former owners names listed, one of which was William Henrie

[THE MAYFLOWER DEPARTS HOLLAND] "The next day (the wind being fair) they went aboard and their friends with them, where truly doleful was the sight of that sad and mournful parting, to see what sighs and sobs and prayers did sound amongst them, what tears did gush from every eye, and pithy speeches pierced each heart; that sundry of the Dutch strangers that stood on the quay as spectators could not refrain from tears. Yet comfortable and sweet it was to see such lively and true expressions of dear and unfeigned love. But the tide stays for no man, calling them away that were thus loath to depart, their reverend pastor falling down on his knews (and they all with him) with watery cheeks commended them with most fervent prayers to the Lord and His blessing. And then with mutual embraces and many tears they took their leave one of another, which proved to be the last leave to many of them." [DEATH AT SEA] "And I may not omit here a special work of God's providence. There was a proud and very profane young man, one of the seamen, of a lusty, able body, which made him the more haughty; he would always be contemning the poor people in their sickness and cursing them daily with grievous execrations; and did not let to tell them that he hoped to help to cast half of them overboard before they came to their journey's end, and to make merry with what they had; and if he were by any gently reproved, he would curse and swear most bitterly. But it pleased God before they came half seas over, to smite this young man with a grievous disease, of which he died in a desperate manner, and so was himself the first that was thrown overboard. Thus his curses light on his own head, and it was an astonishment to all his fellows for they noted it to be the just hand of God upon him. . . In all this voyage there died but one of the passengers, which was William Butten, a youth, servant to Samuel Fuller, when they drew near the coast." [THE MAYFLOWER ARRIVES AT CAPE COD] "Being thus arrived in a good harbor, and brought safe to land, they fell upon their knees and blessed the God of Heaven who had brought them over the vast and furious ocean, and delivered them from all the perils and miseries thereof, again to set their feet on the firm and stable earth, their proper element." [OVERVIEW OF CONDITIONS AFTER ARRIVAL] "But here I cannot but stay and make a pause, and stand half amazed at this poor people's present condition; and so I think will the reader, too, when he well considers the same. Being thus passed the vast ocean, and a sea of troubles before in their preparation . . . they had now no friends to welcome them nor inns to entertain or refresh their weather-beaten bodies; no houses or much less towns to repair to, to seek for succour . . . and for the season it was winter, and they that know the winters of that country know them to be sharp and violent, and subject to cruel and fierce storms, dangerous to travel to known places, much more to search an unknown cost. Besides, what could they see but a hideous and desolate wilderness, full of wild beasts and wild men--and what multitudes there might be of them they knew not. . . . If they looked behind them there was the mighty ocean which they had passed and was now as a main bar and gulf to separate them from all the civil parts of the world." [PILGRIMS PLACE IN HISTORY] "May not and ought now the children of these fathers rightly say: 'Our fathers were Englishmen which came over this great ocean, and were ready to perish in this wilderness, but they cried unto the Lord, and He heard their voice and looked on their adversity . . . Let them therefore praise the Lord, because He is good: and His mercies endure forever.' . . . When they wandered in the desert wilderness out of the way, and found no city to dwell in, both hungry and thirsty, their soul was overwhelmed in them. Let them confess before the Lord His loving kindness and His wonderful works before the sons of men." [THE FIRST WINTER] "But that which was most sad and lamentable was, that in two or three months' time half of their company died, especially in January and February, being the depth of winter, and wanting houses and other comforts; being infected with the scurvy and other diseases which this long voyage and their inaccommodate condition had brought upon them. So as there died some times two or three a day in the foresaid time, that of 100 and odd persons, scarce fifty remained. And of these, in the time of most distress, there was but six or seven sound persons who to their great commendations, be it spoken, spared no pains night nor day, but with abundance of toil and hazard of their own health, fetched them wood, made them fires, dressed them meat, made their beds, washed their loathsome clothes, clothed and unclothed them. In a word, did all the homely and necessary offices for them which dainty and queasy stomachs cannot endure to hear named; and all this willingly and cheerfully, without any grudging in the least, showing herein their true love unto their friends and bretheren; a rare example and Worthy to be remembered. Two of these seven were Mr. William Brewster, their revered Elder, and Myles Standish, their Captain and military commander, unto whom myself and many others were much beholden in our low and sickly condition. And yet the Lord so upheld these persons as in this general calamity they were not at all infected either with sickness or lameness. And what I have said of these I may say of many others who died in this general visitation, and others yet living; that whilst they had health, yea, or any strength continuing, they were not wanting to any that had need of them. And I doubt not their recompense is with the Lord." [INDIAN RELATIONS] "All this while the Indians came skulking about them, and would sometimes show themselves aloof off, but when any approached near them, they would run away; and once they stole away their tools where they had been at work and were gone to dinner. But about the 16th of March, a certain Indian came boldly amongst them and spoke to them in broken English, which they could well understand but marveled at it. At length they understood by discourse with him, that he was not of these parts, but belonged to the eastern parts where some English ships came to fish . . . his name was Samoset. He told them also of another Indian whose name was Squanto, a native of this place, who had been in England and could speak better English than himself. Being, after some time of entertainment and gifts dismissed, a while after he came again, and five more with him, and they brought again all the tools that were stolen away before, and made way for the coming of their great Sachem, called Massasoit. Who, about four or five days after, came with the chief of his friends and other attendance, with the aforesaid Squanto. With whom, after friendly entertainment and some gifts given him, they made a peace with him (which hath now continued this 24 years.)" [written in 1645] [TWO ACCOUNTS OF THE FIRST THANKSGIVING] "[BRADFORD] They began now to gather in the small harvest they had, and to fit up their houses and dwellings against the winter, being all well recovered in health and strength and had all things in good plenty. For as some were thus employed in affairs abroad, others were exercised in fishing, about cod and bass and other fish, of which they took good store, of which every family had their portion. All the summer there was no want; and now began to come in store of fowl, as winter approached, of which this place did abound when they first came . . . And besides waterfowl there was great store of wild turkeys, of which they took many, besides venison, etc." "[WINSLOW] Our harvest being gotten in, our Governor sent four men on fowling, that so we might after a more special manner rejoice together, after we had gathered the fruit of our labours. They four in one day killed as much fowl as, with a little help besides, served the Company almost a week. At which time, amongst other recreations, we exercised our arms, many of the Indians coming amongst us, and amongst the rest their great king, Massasoit with some 90 men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted. And they went out and killed five deer which they brought to the plantation and bestowed on our Governor and upon the Captain and others." [EDWARD WINSLOW ON INDIAN AND ENGLISH WOMEN] "[The poor Indian women] sold their coats from their backs, and tied boughs about them, but with great shame-facedness (for indeed they were more modest than some of our English women)." [BRADFORD REMINISCES IN 1630 ABOUT THE COLONY'S SUCCESS] Thus out of small beginnings greater things have been produced by His hand that made all things of nothing, and gives being to all things that are; and, as one small candle may light a thousand, so the light here kindled hath shown unto many, yea in some sort to our whole nation; let the glorious name of Jehovah have all the praise." ____________________________________________________________ Bradford, William William Bradford was one of the leaders of the pilgrims who established Plymouth Colony. He was its governor for more than 30 years. His History of Plymouth Plantation, 1620-1647, first printed in full in 1856, is a minor classic, reflecting the unusual qualities of the man and the values of the small group of English separatists who became known as Pilgrims. Bradford was born in March 1590 in Austerfield, Yorkshire, the son of a yeoman farmer. He was self-taught. As a young man, he joined Puritan groups that met illegally in nearby Scrooby and was a member of that congregation when it separated from the Church of England in 1606. Bradford was among the 125 Scrooby separatists who sought (1608) religious sanctuary in Holland. When the congregation decided (1617) to seek refuge in America, Bradford took major responsibility for arranging the details of the emigration. The term Pilgrim is derived from his description of himself and his coreligionists as they left Holland (July 22, 1620) for Southampton, where they joined another group of English separatists on the Mayflower. Bradford was one of about a dozen original Scrooby church members who sailed for America on the Mayflower. When John Carver, Plymouth Colony's first governor, died suddenly in April 1621, Bradford was unanimously elected to replace him. He was reelected 30 times. In 1640, Bradford and the group of original settlers known as the "old comers" turned over to the colony the proprietary rights to its lands, which had been granted (1630) to him by the Warwick Patent and then shared by him with the old comers. During the period of his governorship, and especially during the first few years, Bradford provided the strong, steady leadership that kept the tiny community alive. He strove to sustain the religious ideals of the founders and to keep the colony's settlements compact and separate from the larger neighboring colonies. Bradford died on May 9 or 19, 1657. ____________________________________________________________________________________ BRADFORD, William (1590-1657), American colonial governor, one of the Pilgrim Fathers and historian, born in Austerfield, Yorkshire, England. In 1606 he joined the Brownists, a dissident Protestant sect, and three years later, in search of freedom of worship, went with them to Holland, where he became an apprentice to a silk manufacturer. He sailed on the Mayflower in 1620, and after his arrival in the New World he helped found Plymouth Colony. In April 1621 he succeeded Gov. John Carver as chief executive of Plymouth Colony. Except for five years, Bradford served as governor almost continuously from 1621 through 1656, having been reelected 30 times. In 1621 he negotiated a treaty with Massasoit, the chief of the Wampanoag Indians. Under the treaty, which was vital to the maintenance and growth of the colony, Massasoit disavowed Indian claims to the Plymouth area and pledged peace with the colonists. Bradford was a delegate on four occasions to the New England Confederation, of which he was twice elected president. His History of Plimouth Plantation (1856) is the primary source of information about the Pilgrims. Source: Funk & Wagnalls New Encyclopedia Notes for ALICE CARPENTER:ALICE CARPENTER was the daughter of Alexander Carpenter of Wrington, Somerset and Leiden, Holland, she married Edward Southworth at Leiden (MD 10:1). After the death of Southworth, she sailed to Plymouth on the Anne in 1623, and shortly after arrival married Gov. William Bradford as his second wife. She had four sisters associated with Plymouth Colony, Juliana, Priscilla, Agnes, and Mary (Mary Lovering Holman, The Scott Genealogy [Boston, 19191). All the sisters eventually came to Plymouth except Agnes, who married Samuel Fuller, but died before he sailed on the 1620 Mayflower. Alice's two sons by her ftrst marriage, Constant and Thomas Southworth, came to Plymouth after her. Her sister Priscilla's husband, William Wright, mentioned in his will his "brother Will Bradford," who had also been mentioned in the will of Samuel Fuller, her sister Agnes's widower, (MD 1:200, 24).

1383 WWI - Elbert served in a Machine Gun Company with the 103'd Infantry Regiment of the American Expeditionary Forces in France during WW1. In a letter dated Aug 5, 1918 from a field hospital, Elbert wrote that "Somewhere in France" during a machine gun charge into the lines: "......going out into that storm of flying iron with a heavy tripod in one hand and a case of ammunition in the other", while "wiggling thru the wheat, I got a bullet thru my little finger". Later in November, he was hospitalized again, this time in a "gas hospital" in Vichy, France after "a gas shell burst a few yards from me". He related: "The next morning I became acutely sick at my stomach and my eyes began to smart.....and hurt so I could hardly keep them open". "I never had such agony before" With his eyes swollen shut, he experienced the further effects of the gas - "my throat and lungs, which feel burnt. It's like a bery bad cold. Eyes run, nose run, sort throat, awful cough, etc. etc" Elbert received a small military disability check for the remainder of his life due to the negative effects of that noxious gas.
