"Benjamin and Esther (Furnas) Pearson", (1941) by George M. Pearson.


"The name Pearson is of Norman of Danish origin and means son of Pier or Per. The first group of these sea-roving Vikings bearing our name, resided in Northumberland before the year 1000A.D. Our particular clan settled in Winslow and Mobberly in County Chester after the Norman Conquest. These rugged, sea-faring men, who defied the waves of the North Sea in order to find a better home for their families, brought some rich traditions from the mythic-laden North Country. One story was to the effect that one of their grandmothers was a woman of giant strength and that she slew a sea-dragon with her hands. As a reward for this very unlady like gesture, an oracle promised to provide each succeeding generation of Pearsons with at least one superior woman.
Chester County and City are located in the West-Central section of England. Our Quaker ancestry, good as it is, deprived us of any lineal descent as to a coat of arms. According to Burke's Armory of English families, we could lay the best claim to the Pearsons of Winslow. Their coat of arms is described thus: Per fesse embattled gules and azure, three suns in splendor, or. In good old American this means on a banner, shaped like a shield, three suns are painted in gold on azure blue background. Across the mid-shield is the outline of turret walls in blood red. This coat of arms would indicate that it didn't require too long for the Pearson sea-fighters to adapt themselves to land-fighting. Another Pearson tradition: Adapt yourself to any location.
The Norsemen were regarded as the robber barons of England. The Pearsons even showed mildness here from the fact that they never acquired any very large estates. They were too proud to marry for money and too self-reliant to ever accumulate any large estates. The estates acquired, however small, enabled them to marry among the so-called upper class and attend Oxford. One scholar, who aided the Protestant cause, was Bishop Pearson of Chester, probably an ancestor. Reverend Abraham Pierson, a descendant of the Yorkshire branch of the family, was one of the founders and the first president of Yale University, in the year 1701. A glance at a
map of England and a rereading of the Roman occupation, which terminated at Chester, may suggest that the old Roman roads led the Norman Pearsons to this section. It also enabled them to travel by land when they could no longer travel by sea. This travel urge likely led to the first marital union between a Pearson and a Janney. Janney is another way of spelling Gyney, who were Lords of Haverland and Norfolk and descendants of the Counts of Guynes, who date from Charlemagne. Randall Janney II married Ellen Allrod on July 14, 1602. Their oldest daughter, Elizabeth, married Lawrence Pearson. The name appears in the court records as Pierson.
Lawrence, the founder of our clan, lived at Pownall Fee, County Chester, England, near Winslow and Mobberly where the manors of the early Pearsons were located. He and Elizabeth were the parents of five children: John, Sarah, Thomas, companion of William Penn, Mary and Edward, our ancestor. Lawrence Pearson was an associate of George Fox. Because of deep religious convictions, Lawrence relinquished the violent fighting instincts of his ancestors, and became one of the founders of the Society of Friends, known as Quakers. According toJoseph Besse, as related in his "sufferings of the Early Quakers", they endured almost every conceivable torture but held to their convictions of meeting violence with non-violence.
Lawrence's will is recorded in the Probate Registry, Chester, England, and bears the date of February 21, 1673. The sum total of his assets were estimated at 6 lbs. 0.6. His chief asset was listed as "a bargain of ground from Peter Higinbottum". This item is recorded with great pride to convince my offspring that twice in recorded history a Pearson obtained a bargain from a higginbotham., One, mentioned above, and two, when Ora Higginbotham became and, with the aid of her humor and unlimited persistence, has remained my wife for over four decades.
Elizabeth Pearson, the first, almost attained the age of 60 in an era when most women died much younger than that. Lawrence lived to be 72. They deserve much credit for transmitting to later generations their genes loaded with longevity. Elizabeth died in 1662 and Lawrence in 1673. They are buried in the Mobberly burying ground of Friends.
George Fox and some of his followers believed in a literal interpretation of every statement in the Bible. When they read Isaiah 20 and 2, which stated that the prophet was to walk in Jerusalem, "naked and barefoot", they endeavored to approach the cities of England in the same
manner. The civil authorities were more concerned over their personal "revealations" than they were over their understanding of the scriptures, so they threw them in jail for "preaching against sin in the streets". Lawrence is listed as having served one such sentence. The court record does not state whether it was for the exposition of his text or himself.
Thomas Pearson, the second son of Lawrence, joined William Penn in a protest against the conduct of these Quaker extremists. They advocated a more practical interpretation of the scriptures and endeavored to train each man and boy in some trade, or hand skill, as practiced by the Jews from Old Testament days to the present time... Later we read" William Penn and his fellow Quakers showed that they could practice peace making as well as preach it.
Benjamin West, son of Sarah (Pearson) and John West and grandson of Thomas Pearson, immortalized these first contacts with the Indians with his painting: "Penn's Treaty with the Indians", which hangs in Independence Hall. The Quaker who stands fourth from Penn is supposed to be Thomas Pearson. West was the first great American artist and became president of the Royal Academy of Art in London, succeeding Sir Joshua Reynolds."
Corinne's note input here: Lawrence's date of birth in the history above is unlikely. Elizabeth's is also in question. Also in question of course is the legend of Thomas having come over on the ship "Welcome".

Notes for Margery Ellen Smith:
She survived him. Members of the Pearson family, Thomas, Margery Smith Pearson, Mary Smith and the Thomas Janney family, they all arrived in America aboard the "Endeavor" 29 Sep 1683. The ship was the Endeavor of Liverpool,not London, as some have stated. Thomas Pearson and Margery Ellen Smith were wed at the home of Thomas Janney. Margery must have had an uncomfortable ocean crossing, being about four months pregnant when they landed. She was probably glad to have her sister May along. Thomas Pearson was known as--Thomas Pearson of Marple township, Chester Co PA, Supervisor of Highways in 1684, Member of Council in 1687, and membe of Assembly in 1708. It is said that Thomas was a prominent Friend. ===============================================================
Men and women named Pearson were among the first colonists to settle in Penn's Woods and to join in his "Holy Experiment." Whether any of these are ancestors of the Pearsons who later appear in Carolina and are related to those who went to Ohio early in the 18th Century, has, so far as the writer knows, not yet been determined.
THE QUAKERS. The rise of the society of Friends has been called "one of the memorable events in the history of man [4] The sect takes its rise from the abuses prevalent under the Church of England during the 17th Century. The founder, George Fox, was born in Leicestershire in 1624, and early devoted himself to the study of the Bible, prayer and meditation. He arrived at the main tenets of Quakerism about 1645 and soon thereafter made his first convert. He suffered imprisonment many times, chiefly because he preached against the maintenance of the clergy at the expense of the laity, and because he was opposed to war. In 1651 Magistrate Bennet called Fox "Quaker" because Fox bade the court tremble at the word of the Lord. The members of the sect called themselves "Children of Light". After 1652 they became generally known as "Friends", the name being taken from the words of Jesus: "Ye are my friends if Ye do whatsoever I command you." While he was in America, Fox traveled in the border colonies from New England to Carolina, mostly by canoe and on horseback. He was deeply concerned about the conversion of the Indians. He spent two years here, and after his return to England continued to manifest much interest in the welfare of his people in the American colonies.
Early in youth William Penn became a convert to Quakerism, and when he inherited Pennsylvania from the estate of his father, he invited these who were seeking true religious and political liberty to emigrate to his vast domain in America, and there attempt to enthrone justice and secure happiness. Among the larger groups who joined with him in this "holy experiment" were the English and Irish Quakers, the Scotch-Irish of Northern Ireland, and the German Protestants (Mennonites, Amish, Dunkers and Lutherans) of the Rhine country and Switzerland. Penn was in his colony for two periods, 1682-1684 and 1699-1701. One of his first acts was to conclude the Shackamazon Treaty (1682) with the Indians, whereby Penn promised peace and justice and the Indians declared that they would "live in love with Penn and his children while grass grows and water runs." The pledge was never broken, and during Penn's lifetime not a single Quaker was killed by an Indian.
Unlike the Puritans of New England, the Quakers sought to establish justice and happiness not only for themselves but for all mankind. Three hundred years ago the Quakers sought reforms that have not yet been accepted although they are recognized as steps in the path of progressive civilization. They were peaceful, quiet, and orderly. They opposed the death penalty at a time when capitol punishment was imposed for two hundred different offenses, some of them trivial. The Quakers objected to imprisonment for debt as an unjust limitation of human rights. They preached against vanity, luxury, idleness, waste, and falsehoods. They supported individual liberty of conscience and intellectual tolerance. They advocated equality between and in the sexes, and opposed the priesthood. They practiced plainness of speech, behavior, and apparel, and were temperate and honest. Later they were opposed to slavery and stood out firmly against it during the first part of the 19th Century. But one of the most valuable of their tenets was their obstinate opposition to was, manifested in their refusal to kill, to bear arms, and to give aid and comfort to belligerents. Members of the Society who took up arms in war were disowned. Dean Inge has said that "the Quakers, of all Christian bodies, have remained nearest to the teaching and example of Christ." [5]
FIRST ARRIVALS. One of the first men to bear the name of Pearson to come to America was Rev. Abraham Pearson, who arrived in Boston in 1649. In the same year, "as a student", he was given leave "to join in Ye gathering of a church at Ye Long Isleland", and was a minister at Southampton, L.I., until 1644 when he removed to Branford, CT, and thence to Newark, NJ [6]. Another account [7] gives his birthplace as Yorkshire, England, in 1613: he was a minister at Lynn, Massachusetts, his first year in this country, and removed from Southampton in 1647 and from Branford in 1667. His son, Thomas, removed from Branford to Newark in 1668. These men were not Quakers, for the elder left England before Fox had founded the Society. Had they been Quakers, they would not have been permitted to remain in Massachusetts. In 1659-60 three men and one woman were hanged on Boston Common because they were Quakers. [8]
Many members of the family appeared early in Pennsylvania. There will always be some confusion about the early settlers in this colony because of the destruction of the immigration records at New Castle by the British during the Revolution.
Mobert [9] gives the following story: "Penn went to Upland (Chester) on the 29th of October, 1682. Turning around to Pearson, one of his society, who had accompanied him in the ship Welcome, he said, 'Providence has brought us here safe. Thou hast been the companion of my peril. What wilt thou that I shall call this place?' Pearson said, "Chester," in remembrance of the city from whence we came." This story appears in nearly every history of Chester County, but evidently it is not true for the name of Upland had been changed to Chester before Penn's arrival in the colony, and probably before the coming of a Pearson. Futhey and Cope [10] state that the first name of this man is supposed to have been Robert. Smith [11] says that his name was Thomas, and gibes the following account:
Thomas Pearson, frequently called Thomas Person, with his wife Margery, came from England with Wm. Penn when on his first visit to Pennsylvania. If any reliance can be placed on tradition, it was upon his suggestion that the name of Upland was changed to Chester. He settled in Marple Township on the tract marked "Thomas Perce 'on the Holme' map. His children were Robert, Thomas, Lawrence, Enoch John, Alice, Sarah, and Benjamin, all born in this country. His daughter, Sarah, intermarried with John West and was the mother of the great painter, Sir Benjamin West. His son, Robert, married Catharine, daughter of James Thomas of Marion. Thomas Pearson the elder was alive in 1706. Besides Pearson, some of his descendants took the names Parsons, Persons, Pierson.
In December, 1684, there appeared before the court "Margrett Person who complained against her master, John Colbert, for his ill usage and beating her contrary to law: - the court ordered that she be disposed of for seven pounds." [12] The court on the 1st, 5th month, 1684, appointed Thomas Pearson constable and supervisor for highways for Marple Township. [13] On the 26th of November, 1687, the Margaret, John Bowman commander, arrived from London; among the Passengers were Thomas Pierson, mason and his wife Margaret, late of Poonell (Pownell), Cheshire. [14]
That the records are very much at variance is shown by the following account of the early Pearsons in Pennsylvania: [15]
It was three-quarters of a century prior to the artists' (Benjamin West) birth that his maternal grandparents, the youthful Thomas Pearson and Margery, his bride of a bare six months, came voyaging over the sea to set up their abode in what was then the newly-established Providence of Pennsylvania.
Their old home in England was in the Township of Pownall Fee, Parish of Wilmslow, in the Northeast of the County of Chester of Cheshire. There both were born of Quaker parents in that seething fervid era of the rise of the Society, There also, 2nd Mo. (April) 18, 1683, they were married, in a friends' meeting at the house of Thomas Janney the Quaker minister, later in the year their shipmate to Pennsylvania. The parents of the groom at this time were not living, the father, Lawrence Pearson, having died 12th Mo. (February) 24, 1673, and the mother, Elizabeth Pearson, 6 Mo. (August) 13, 1662; the place of their interment was in Friends' burial ground in the adjoining Parish of Mobberley. The bride, Margery Pearson, who was born 12Mo. (February) 1, 1658, was the daughter of Robert and Ellen Smith. Her sister, Mary Smith, born 12 Mo. (February) 24, 1660, came with her to Pennsylvania, and in 1685 was married under the care of Chester Monthly Meeting to Daniel Williamson.
Thomas Pearson, and likewise his brother Edward Pearson, followed in the footsteps of their father Lawrence and of their uncle Robert Pearson, also of Pownall fee, by learning the mason trade. It was Thomas' bachelor brother, John Pearson, born at Pownall Fee, 7 Mo. (September) 5, 1654, who had made the initial move of the family towards Pennsylvania colonization. He became one of William Penn's First Purchasers in England by receiving the grant of 259 acres of land to be laid out in the Province, the deeds of lease for the end release for the tract being signed by Penn, march 2 and 3, 1681-2, in his London land office, in historic old George Yard in Lombard Street. John accompanied his brother Thomas to Pennsylvania.
The other brother, Edward Pearson, who was married 1 Mon. (March 6, 1671), at Pownall Fee, to Sarah Burgis, did not come over until 1687. Then he made his first settlement at Darby, but later removed to Bucks County where he left a worthy line of descendants.
The Pearsons arrived on the ketch Endeavor of London, George Thorpe Master, 7 Mo. (September) 29, 1683.
As a matter of fact, there were three Quaker Thomas Pearsons, wholly unrelated, who emigrated to Pennsylvania in the days of William Penn:
Thomas, from Bristol, in 1683, afterwards Deputy Surveyor of New Castle County, Delaware.
1.Thomas, from Cheshire, in 1683, grandfather of Benjimin West.
Thomas, with his wife Grace, from Lancashire, in 1698. He died on the voyage. The children figure in the records of Middletown Monthly Meetings, Bucks County.
John Pearson's grant of land was surveyed for him in Marple Township, October 25, 1683, and there he and Thomas proceeded at once to make their settlement… Later John, the brother, formally deeded the tract to Thomas and went to live a little further to the North over the line in Newtown Township.
In 1684, at the Chester County Court, Thomas Pearson was made road supervisor , as well as constable of Marple Township. On several occasions he served in the grand Inquest of the court. In 1686 he was brought to the bar for drunkenness and swearing. This backsliding of his young manhood, however, was of short duration for soon he was participating in other public as well as Quaker meeting service.
In 1689, he became tax collector for Marple, and in 1690, fence viewer. In 1708, he was elected to the Pennsylvania Assembly from Chester County. In 1703, and again in 1716, he was made overseer of Springfield meeting. He died in 1734 on the Marple homestead of his first settlement, and doubtless lies buried in the Springfield graveyard with his wife and others of his family in unmarked graves.
Margery, his wife of Thomas Pearson, was the mother of ten children, all duly recorded in the meeting registers, her oldest child, Robert, having been born 12 Mo. (February) 3, 1683, but a few months after settlement in the new home. From the disappearance of her name from the Chester records in 1721, it is to be supposed that she died not long after.
Sarah, their seventh child, was born at their Marple home 2 Mo. (April) 8, 1697. She, too, like her mother, with ten children to care for and her other heavy house wifely duties as the wife of John West, the innkeeper, must have had a burdensome life. At any rate, she died at the age of 59, in 1756, while her husband kept the inn near Present Newtown Square on the West Chester Pike. She, and her father and mother, were signers of the marriage certificate of her brother Lawrence, of Marple, Tailor, to Esther Massey, daughter of Thomas Massey, of Marple, yeoman,, on 3 Mo (May) 24, 1711, at Springfield meeting. Although no records so indicate, it is possible that she was buried with her Pearson kin-folks at Springfield Meeting in an unmarked grave. Thus unhonored and unsung lies this pioneer mother of a most distinguished son, the court painter Sir Benjimin West, who lies buried in St. Paul's London.

About 1689, Robert Longshore drew up "An Alphabetical List of Lands taken up by Several Purchasers, Renters and Old Renters within the County of Chester, and the Quantityes Certified." Among the holders listed were Thomas Pearson with 350 acres; Benjimin Mendenhall, with 250 acres, and John Mendenhall, with 300 acres. On the 1693 list of taxables for "Marpoole" Township were Thomas Pearson (3 pounds) and John Pearson (2 pounds, 6 shillings): for Concord Township Benjamin Mendenhall (3 pounds) and John Mendenhall (2 pounds, 6 shillings). In 1690, Thomas Pearson was appointed a member of a committee to receive contributions for building a new meeting house for Chester meetings.
A Thomas Peirson was appointed one of the overseers of Cain meeting, at the establishment of that meeting in 1716. The meeting house was built on land given to the meeting by John Mendenhall, in what is now Delaware County. Both John Jr., and Aaron, sons of John Mendenhall, were overseers of Cain meeting. John Jr. later moved to Virginia.
The following three accounts of members of the Pearson family are taken from Smith's , History of Delaware County: [16]
Benjamin Pearson with his wife Susanna and family, emigrated from the town of Rotherham in the West Riding of Workshire, England, about the year 1712, and settled in Darby Township. His wife's maiden name was Burbeck. They were in membership with Friends at the time of their arrival. Benjamin was a very sedate man, strongly British in his notions, and never became fully reconciled to this country. He never would admit that its products were equal to those of England - turnips only excepted. He died in 1763, aged 81 years, the death of his wife having occurred eighteen years earlier. They had been better educated than usual for emigrants in that day, but Benjamin, feeling so little interested in the country, never made any exertions to acquire property in it. Their children were Benjamin, Thomas, and Isaac, born in England, and John, Joseph, Samuel, and Joshua, born in this Country. Thomas, the second son, married Hannah, the daughter of Samuel and granddaughter of John Blunston, and settled in Darby. From their oldest son, John, who married Anne Bevan, all of the Darby Pearsons have descended.
John Person, or Pearson, was an early settler in Newtown Township, and was a brother to Thomas Pearson, or Person, of Marple, and he also had a brother Edward, probably Edward Pierson of Darby. As Thomas and Edward both came from Cheshire, England, it may be inferred that he also migrated from that place. He bequeathed 10 pounds towards building a meeting house at Newtown, and 6 pounds towards "paling-in" a graveyard at Springfield. He died in 1709, without children, and probably unmarried.
Edward Pierson, from Ponnallfee in Cheshire, England settled in Darby Township in 1687. By trade he was a mason and probably followed that business. He was a member of the Society of Friends, but was not as strict a member as was usual in his day. There are reasons for believing that he was a brother of Thomas Pearson, who accompanied William Penn, though his name is spelled differently. He had a son Lawrence, and probably one named Thomas, and another Abel. It is said he removed to Bucks County.
The 1722 list of taxables, with assessed value of their real estate, include the following: Marple - Robert Pearson, 40 pounds; Enoch Pearson, 15 pounds; John Pearson, freeman; Darby - Abel Pearson, 19 pounds; The 1715 list had included Thomas Pearson and Robert Pearson, and Enoch Pearson, freeman. [17]
Which of the men were ancestral to the Pearson families who immigrated to Virginia and the Carolinas during the second quarter of the 18th century, the writer has not yet determined. It is likely, however, that the information is available in the records of the Friends, Historical Society, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, and in Quaker records of removal and settlement.

The Pearsons in the South

During the quarter of the Century between 1725 and 1750, many Pennsylvania families moved Southward and Southwestward, along the edge of the Appalachians and into the fertile valleys of the Eastern hills. These were chiefly Quakers, Pennsylvania Dutch, and Scotch-Irish. Members of all three groups settled in the Shenandoah Valley, and in other Western parts of Virginia, in Western North and South Carolina, and a few in Georgia, along the upper part of the Savannah River. The movement progressed Southward, striking Georgia about 1780. These people left Pennsylvania because that colony had begun to fill up, and land became more expensive. In the country to which they moved lay fertile, unclaimed land, which was easily turned into productive farms. Although Quakers were opposed in principle to the institution of slavery, many of the Southern members bought and owned slaves, although they seldom sold them.
Among the early meetings set up in Virginia were Hopewell, in Frederick County, six miles North of Winchester; Fairfax, in Loudoun County, seven miles West of North of Leesburg: Cedar Creek, in Hanover County and Mount Pleasant, in Frederick County, nine miles Southwest of Winchester.
Many families went direct from Pennsylvania to the Carolinas. Among the early meetings erected there were Cane Creek, in Alamance County, fourteen miles South of Graham; Contentnea, in Wayne County, fifteen miles North of Goldsborough; Deep River in Guilford County, twelve miles South West of Greensboro: New Garded in Guilford County, New Guilford College: Springfield, in Guilford County, near High Point; (all of the foregoing are in North Carolina; the following are in South Carolina): Bush River, in Newberry County, eight miles Northwest of Newberry; Cane Creek, near Bush River; and Wrightsboro, in McDuffie County, Georgia, thirty miles Northwest of Augusta. [18]
The name of Pearson appears early in the records of Contentnea meeting. The large settlement of Friends in Alamance, Chatham, Guilford, Randolph, and Surrey Counties, North Carolina was formed by immigrants, not by the expansion of the native element. This stream of immigrants was strong and healthy. It adds a stable element, fortified still further by the presents thrift, frugality, and energy, to the making of the State. [19] The Pearsons seem to have moved on into South Carolina, for the name is not mentioned by Weeks as occurring again in North Carolina Quaker records.
Up to 1762, South Carolina Quakers seem to have come to that colony by the water route. Some have settled in Charleston and along the Edisto River. In 1770, Bush River Monthly Meeting was set up, and received from Camden, where they had previously resided, several families in membership, among the Kellys, O'Nealls and Piersons. However, most of the people of Bush River had come overland from the North, some from North Carolina, and some direct form Pennsylvania. The following extract is from Weeks: [20]
The group of meetings clustering about Bush River was the most important in South Carolina. The origin of this meeting and the time it began cannot be discovered. William Coate was living near Bush River before 1762, and Samuel Kelly, a native of King's County, Ireland, removed to Newberry County, from Camden, in 1762. Other early Quaker settlers were John Furnas, David Jenkins, Benjamin and William Pearson. Robert Evans came from Camden, Probably between 1762 and 1769. Judge O'Neall, [21] author of Annals of Newberry, had a birthright membership in this meeting. His parents were both from Antrim, Ireland, and this would indicate a mixture of races in the settlement. We may conclude that it had the Irish as a base, with a super stratum of immigrants from the States to the North.
In 1779, a body of Friends from a "Distant Land", probably Ireland, settled within the limits of Bush River monthly Meeting, but as they had not regular certificates, Western Quarterly Meeting advised that they be not received as full members. [22]
O'Neall gives a further account of the bush river settlement: [23]
The Quaker settlement was on Bush River and on the Beaverdam. It extended from three or four miles on each side of the river. No finer body of land can be found in South Carolina than that embraced within the limits of the settlement.
When the settlement began, or whence came the great body of settlers, it is out of my power to say with certainty. Certain it is that William Coate, before 1762, lived between Springfield and Bush River, and that Samuel Kelly, a native of Kings' County, Ireland, but who came to Newberry from Camden, settled at Springfield in 1762, John Furnas at the same time, and adjoining made his settlement. David Jenkins, about the same time, or possible a few years before, settled here. Benjamin Pearson and William Pearson lived on the plantation, once the property of John Frost, now that of Judge O'Neall, as early as 1769,…Thomas Pearson, Samuel Pearson, and the two Enoch Pearsons were, among others, residents of this section before or during the Revolution, and were Friends, or were ranked as such by descent…. The following family names appear in the settlement: Wright Brooks, Thomas, Patty, McCoole, Coate, O'Neall, Hollinsworth, Harbert, Parkins, Smith, Miles, Brown, Gaunt, Pugh, Gilbert, Galbreath, Coppock, Reagin, Insco, Spray, Teague, Pemberton, Inman, Babb, Steddam, Crumpton, Cook, Jay, Reagan, Hasket, Longshore, Duncan, etc.
The Quaker community on Bush River was a most interesting one. Small farms, enough and to spare, among all, was its general state. Hard working, healthy, yet an honest, innocent and mirthful, though a staid people, make up altogether an interesting picture… Within the graveyard, South of the old meeting house, sleeps hundreds of the early settlers of Bush River (In unmarked graves, for the Quakers were opposed to the use of gravestones).
Other families of Pearson lived in other sections of South Carolina, and were probably unrelated to the Quaker families. Abstracts from an old account book of the Georgetown District, Cheraws, appear the names of Aaron and Moses Pearson, 1788-1792. [24] Again, "The Pearsons lived East of the Pedee in the Marlborough District, called the Big Plantation. Moses Pearson was a noted captain in the Revolution." [25] These men lived in the Northeastern part of the State, and were certainly of different extraction.

It is likely that the Pearsons of Miami County have descended from the Pearsons of Newberry County, South Carolina. The Custodian of Records of the North Carolina Yearly Meeting of Friends is now compiling data on marriages, births, and certificates of removal.
One of the chief tenets of Quakerism at this time was opposition to slavery, although many members continued to own slaves, holding that the slaves were better off under their benign management than they would be if free and thus subject to capture and resale. The laws of the Carolinas were devised to make emancipation difficult if not impossible, but Quakers early followed the plan of giving the slave to their Yearly meeting, and the officials of the Yearly Meeting arranged for the transportation of the slaves to the Northwest Territory or to Canada. At the close of the 18th Century, opinion on the slavery issue differed among Friends, but it became the usual thing for a member to be disowned for selling a slave. Samuel Kelly, perhaps the earliest settler in Bush River, was thus disowned.
Between 1800 and 1804, Zachary Dicks, of New Garden, North Carolina, a celebrated Quaker preacher, passed through Bush River, and spoke to the meeting there. He was thought to have the gift of prophecy, for he predicted a quarter of a century before that within a few years the meeting house at Guilford Court House, North Carolina, would be washed with blood; his prophesy was fulfilled when the Quakers, who refused to bear arms in battle, took over the nursing of the wounded, British and American, and placed them in their meeting house, and buried the dead in their graveyard. At the time of Dick's visit to Bush River, there had lately come the news of the slave uprising in Santo Domingo and the slaughter of many of the white masters. He warned Friends to come out from a slave country. He predicted that in the lifetime of people then living there would be a war about slavery, and that the country would be drenched in blood and hatred. He declared that the institution of slavery was incompatible with the Quaker faith, and urged Friends to take their children out of the south. He told them that if they did not, their fate would be that of the murdered Santo Domingo whites. He urged them to go to the Northwest Territory, which, by the Ordinance of 1787, was forever to be free from slavery. A vivid, dramatic presentation of this prediction is found in Doan's "Bush River."
"Between 1797 and 1799, Abijah O'Neall and Samuel Kelly Jr. bought the military lands of Jacob Robert Brown in Ohio; the great body of it was in Warren County, East of Cincinnati." Abijah O'Neall visited, located the land, and in 1799, in the language of Samuel Kelly Sr.
'Beyond the mountains and far away,
With bears and wolves to play.'
he commenced his toilsome removal to his Western home. When about starting, he applied to Friends for his regular certificate of membership, etc. This they refused him, on the grounds that his removal was itself such a thing as did not meet their approbation. Little did they then dream that in less than ten years they would all be around him in the then far West!: [26] "During the first fifteen years of the 19th Century, more than 18,000 followers of Fox and Penn left the land of slavery, and made for the North to find a home in the Northwest Territory, where the blight of human slavery could never exist." [27]
The warning of Dicke "produced in a short time a panic, and removals to Ohio commenced, and by 1807 the Quaker settlement had in a great degree, changed its population. (After 1807, no meetings were regularly held in Bush River, and by 1822 it was abandoned.) Land which could often since, and even now after near forty years cultivation in cotton, can be sold for $10, $15 and $20 per acre (1859), was sold then for from $3 to $6. Newberry thus lost, from a foolish panic and superstitious fear of an institution, which never harmed them or any other body of people, a very valuable portion of its white population." [28]
The records of the Friends' meetings [29] shows that some people of the name of Pearson came direct to Bush River from Pennsylvania, and others of the name came there from the Hopewell, Virginia, meeting. The minutes of the Baltimore and Philadelphia Yearly Meetings may give sufficient information to trace these families in Bush River to the First Pennsylvania settlers.
The Bush River records show that the Pearsons were given certificates of removal to the Miami meeting in Ohio (Warren Cou

Part I: William and Mary Jane WOMACK of Henrico Co., Virginia.
The ancestor of most of the WOMACKs in America today is believed to be William WOMACKwho was born about 1610 to 1620 presumably in England, County of Norfolk.[1] There are still WOMACKs in that area. On a tour of England in 1970 a WOMACKstore was noticed in Sleaford. William is believed to have come to Henrico County, Virginia between 1630 and 1640. The five sons of William--William, Abraham, Richard, Thomas and John are mentioned in the Colonial Records of Virginia as was the ancestral home being Norfolk, England. There were three daughters Ann, Mary, and Jane.1. William WOMACK, the Immigrant b presumably in England, County Norfolk b 1610/20. d Henrico Co., VA1674/77. m Mary Jane Allen, widow, d c 1685.

There were 11 in North Carolina and 2 in South Carolina. Later they went westward to Tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri and later still to the northwest and farther west. They went south to Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and other states.The WOMACK name is spelled with many variations in the records: WOMACK, Wamack, Wamoche, Wommack, Waamock, Wamocke and many others. The most used pronunciation of the families in North Carolina and Tennessee put the accent on the first syllable as Wom'ack. In a few instances an "r" was used in the first syllable as War'mack.

4 4/7/2016 - Looking into this, it seems that our Henry is not the son of William Berry who settled in Sandy_Beach/Rye/Portsmouth NH.

So I will break the link in my tree. Therefore it perhaps is not important that William Berry (NH) is probably not the same William Berry who settled Newbury MS in 1642.

Need to find who are Henry's ancestors/parents. And are there 2 generations named Henry? That could be a red flag. Maybe I piggybacked off someone's sloppy research? Wouldn't be the first time...

It would be good to know who are our Berry ancestors if not immigrant William.

5 Abraham VAN METER:

From Prouty & Heiken Ancestors

Abraham VAN METER651,652 was born on 13 Jun 1744 in USA, Virginia, Frederick Co.. He died in 1781 in USA, Kentucky, Shelby Co.. Abraham Van Meter, his wife, and four daughters, went to Kentucky with his father but he was killed by Indians soon after their arrival. Abraham's land grant was near Shelbyville and he and his family were stationed with Squire Boone at Boone's fort, when it was attacked by Indians. The Indians were repulsed but Abraham was struck by an arrow: he was only grazed and thought nothing of it, but in a few days became violently ill and died. Another story of his death is that he was killed near the present site of Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville.
Abraham had at least one slave he brought with him from Virginia. This was "General Braddock," who became well-known on the frontier and who earned his freedom through killing nine Indians. He moved from the Severns Valley settlement to Goodin's fort in the Rolling Fork when Abraham's widow, who had inherited him, married Samuel Goodin. The slave was appraised at 100 pounds. On March 19, 1797 he was "set free forever." He afterwards married Becky Swan and lived on a small farm near Elizabethtown. This verifies that the Swans, who came out with the Van Meter party, also brought slaves to Kentucky.

651 Who Was Who in Hardin County - Jacob Van Meter, Sr. p. 159.

(From "Bits and Pieces" of Hardin County History by the Hardin County Historical Society, PO 381, Elizabethtown, KY 42702) comes the Following:

"In 1780 a group of 100 Kentucky Pioneers, lead by Jacob Van Meter entered Severns Valley, Kentucky. It could very well be that 23 of them were members of a group that splintered off from the Van Meter Colony while traveling through the Knobs and settled near present day Boston, KY. The leader of this "break-away" band was Samuel Goodin.

The circumstantial evidence that the Goodins and the Van Meters did travel together is convincing. Both families were from Greene and Fayette Co., the "Ten Mile Country" of Southwestern Pennsylvania. the early Histories contend that both families arrived at the Falls of the Ohio in 1779 and that both Van Meters Fort and Goodins Fort were established in 1780.
Van Meter, Abraham (I2062)

Lance Stroud and John H. (Pete) Ross
Letitia (Letty) Stroud was born 30 August 1725, to parents Edward James (c1695-1789) and Eleanor Shepherd Strode (c1699-?) both of Shepton Mallet, Somerset, England. Edward James' parents were Edward William Strode (1629-1697) and Susannah Hatchet Strode (c1671-?).
The Strode family fled England to Holland during the Monmouth Rebellion with traditions given in numerous accounts saying that they were descended from Edward Strode, Esq. of England. Reports vary as to the destination and exact date of departure of the fleeing Strode family, with a likely destination of New Jersey on the ship Paysay.
Edward James Strode was part of some of the Strode families and others that apparently left Chester county, Pennsylvania in 1734-35, when they secured a 100,000 acre grant in Frederick County, Virginia (later to become Berkeley County, Virginia).
The children of Edward James Strode were Susannah I, Edward IV, Letitia (Letty), James, John V, and Jeremiah I. The birth place of these children may have been Chester County, Pennsylvania. Edward James Strode is believed to have died in Fredrick County (now Berkeley County), Virginia, 1789.
In 1758 Edward James Strode supplied provisions for the army in the French and Indian War and during this time became known as Captain James Strode. The Strode family had settled in Virginia, along the Opequon Creek at it's juncture with the Potomac River. Here they built a stone fort known as Strode Fort Farm. Stories of heroism on the part of the Strode women have been told concerning Indian attacks in times when their men were off fighting elsewhere.
Letty married Jacob Van Meter, Sr. on 30 August 1741, in Frederick County, Virginia. The Van Meters, a leading Virginia family, was not in agreement about the marriage of their son Jacob to Letitia Strode because of her religious beliefs and on moral grounds. The family felt that the first born child of Jacob and Letitia (Eleanor Clyne, 1742-c1811) was not Jacob's.
The couple remained in Virginia until about 1769, then relocated to Muddy Creek, Greene County, Pennsylvania. In 1779 they traveled via flatboat to their new home in Severns Valley, Nelson County, Kentucky (present day Elizabethtown, Hardin County, Kentucky). Jacob and Letitia Van Meter were involved in the founding of present day Elizabethtown, Kentucky. They were also involved in the founding of present day Severns Valley Baptist Church, Elizabethtown.
Children of Jacob and Letitia were: Eleanor Clyne; Abraham; Rebecca; Elizabeth; Susannah; Rachel; Mary; Isaac; Margaret; Jacob Jansen; John; Alsey; and William. All born in Frederick County, Virginia. Jacob and Letitia Strode Van Meter both died in Hardin County, Kentucky. Their gravesite is located in the Elizabethtown Cemetery.
Edward James Strode was a brother to George Strode III, who is a direct ancestor of Lance Stroud. Edward James Strode was the 5th great-grandfather of John Harlow (Pete) Ross. Jacob and Letitia Van Meter were the 4th great-grandparents of Pete.

9 Don Luís de Velasco (f. 1561-1571), also known as Paquiquino, was a Native American, possibly of the Kiskiack or Paspahegh[1] tribe, from Tidewater Virginia who in 1561 was taken by the Spanish to Cuba, Mexico, and Spain, where he was baptized as Don Luís de Velasco and educated.[2] Don Luís would return in 1571 as a missionary to Virginia, where he apparently participated in the killing of the Jesuits who had accompanied him.
Some historians, among them Carl Bridenbaugh, have speculated that Don Luís was the same person as Opechancanough, younger brother (or close relative) of Powhatan (Wahunsonacock), paramount chief of an alliance of Algonquian-speakers in the Tidewater.

The Bryan(t) family of Stafford County in the mid 1600s and beyond connects to the royal blood of the Patawomeck Indian Tribe through their last chief, Wahanganoche (alias Whipsewasson), nephew of the great chief, Powhatan, father of Pocahontas. The Bryan(t)s and their descendants have multiple lines of descent from Wahanganoche and other members of the Patawomeck Tribe.
The first generation of Indian blood included Dr. Richard Bryan(t), Martha Bryan(t) [wife of Thomas Foley], Thomas Bryan(t), Silent Bryan(t), and others. Dr. Richard Bryan(t)'s son, also a Dr. Richard Bryan(t) (d. 1749, King George Co., VA), married Seth Anderson, also of Indian blood of the royal line of the Pamunkey Tribe, who was also his cousin through the Patawomecks. Since Dr. Richard Bryan(t) Sr.'s wife, Anne (Meese) Redman, was the daughter of Henry Meese, whose first wife is also believed to have been a daughter of Chief Wahanganoche, it is no wonder why the Bryan(t) descendants form the greatest number of the current Patawomeck Tribe, officially recognized by the Stafford County Government.

Anyone interested in purchasing any published material on the Patawomeck Indian Tribe and associated families (contained in the "Monteith Family and the Potomac Indians") may contact the undersigned by the following e-mail address:
I am the current historian of the Patwomeck Tribe and a descendant of the Bryan(t) family in many ways, as well as being a descendant of the Patawomeck lines of Monteith, Curtis, Sullivan, and Roberson. The singer, Wayne Newton, is a descendant of the Patawomeck Tribe in many ways, also. His great grandparents, Albion Newton and Silvester Sullivan, are pictured in several of my books. The Monteith book includes a discussion on the Ashton lineage of England of the Elkins family.
Ralph Elkins' wife was a sister of Col. Peter Ashton, who, along with Henry Meese, was a favorite of Chief Wahanganoche. Peter Ashton brought the immigrant, John Grigsby, to Virginia, who lived on adjoining land to the old chief and left descendants who intermarried with those of Indian blood. Some of the other families touched on in the Monteith book are Gallop, Redman, Finnall, Hansbrough, Newton, Rowley, Rollow, Roberson, Jones, Martin, Owens, Curtis, Doniphan, Bowen, Jett, Butler, Courtney, Foley, Anderson, West, Robinson, Earle, etc.

Person SheetNameKing Wahanganoche .Birthca 1564, Caroline County, VirginiaDeathca 1666, Caroline County, VirginiaFatherJapasaw .SpousesUnmarriedChildren“Keziah” ArroyahNotes for King Wahanganoche .(1) Bill Deyo, Tribal Historian, states the following:
Wahanganoche's father was the petty-chief, Japasaw, or more correctly, I-oppasus, who had become the King of Patawomeck by the 1620s. I do not know the wife of Wahanganoche, but I-oppasus had two wives. One whose name I do not know but who was a daughter of Powhatan and I-oppasus' own niece or half-niece. It is possible that she was the daughter of Powhatan called Cahoke or Kaokee, traditionally the ancestor of the Peyton and Roberson families of Patawomeck blood, who was said to have been a daughter of Powhatan. His other wife was Paupauwiske who was known to have had a child, possibly Wahanganoche, as was written about by Henry Spelman. The Curtis family traditionally descends from the Patawomeck Indian girl, Ontonah, left an orphan by the battle of 1666. As the Peyton and Roberson families also descend from her, she may be the link back to the wife of I-oppassus who was the daughter of Powhatan, Kaokee (?). The Bryan(t) family of Stafford County in the mid 1600s and beyond connects to the royal blood of the Patawomeck Indian Tribe through their last chief, Wahanganoche (alias Whipsewasson), nephew of the great chief, Powhatan, father of Pocahontas. The Bryan(t)s and their descendants have multiple lines of descent from Wahanganoche and other members of the Patawomeck Tribe. The first generation of Indian blood included Dr. Richard Bryan(t), Martha Bryan(t) [wife of Thomas Foley], Thomas Bryan(t), Silent Bryan(t), and others. Dr. Richard Bryan(t)'s son, also a Dr. Richard Bryan(t) (died 1749, King George Co., VA), married Seth Anderson, also of Indian blood of the royal line of the Pamunkey Tribe, who was also his cousin through the Patawomecks. Since Dr. Richard Bryan(t) Sr.'s wife, Anne (Meese) Redman, was the daughter of Henry Meese, whose first wife is also believed to have been a daughter of Chief Wahanganoche, it is no wonder why the Bryan(t) descendants form the greatest number of the current Patawomeck Tribe, officially recognized by the Stafford County Government.

From: THE VIRGINIA INDIAN TRIBES: 17TH CENTURY, Leaflet 57, Apr 1933, 2nd Printing Sept 1940, Dept of Indian Art, Denver Art Museum, Denver Colorado: "POTOMAC or PATAWOMEKE. An important tribe in 1600's centering about a town of the same name in Stafford County, Virginia on a peninsula formed by the Potomac River. Population then about 800. Today perhaps 150 mixed bloods live in the neighborhood, about 8 miles north of Fredericksburg."

"The descendants of the Patawomeke Tribe in Stafford have always been proud of their Indian heritage and have passed down thier descent from Chief Japasaw for many generations. They have lived in the same area in and around Passapatanzy (8 miles North of Fredericksburg, VA, now on the border of Stafford and King George counties), the seat of Japasaw and his son, Wahanganoche, "King of Patomeck", since the early 1600's. footnote 8. "A Brief Outline of Recorded History of the Patawomeck Tribe" William L. Deyo, 2000.

Chief Japasaw was a brother to Chief Powhatan, the first Indian leader met by the Jamestown colonists. Powhatan was the father of Pocahontas. Pocahontas's mother was from the Patawomeck Tribe, one of the tribes in the Powhatan Confederacy.

Chief Wahanganoche, King of Patawomke, is last known to have lived at Passapatanazy in 1662 when Capt. Giles Brent and others were reprimanded for assault and false accusations against the chief. footnote 10, above source.

"The family material on the Indian annihilation goes hand in had with the recorded history of the year 1666 when the General Court of Virginia declared war on the Patawomekes and other area tribes, at which time Capt. Giles Brent and others engaged in battle against the area indians. Since he had a personal grudge against the Patawomekes, havng been reprimanded and punished for his charges and assault against Chief Wahanganoche, it is most logical that they were prime targets. This fits with the Curtis ancestor, a Patawomeke Indian girl named "Ontonah", who was orphaned after both of her parents were killed during a confrontation between the whilte settlers and the Indians. The Curtis family raised Ontonah and gave her the Christian name of "Elizabeth". Elizabeth Ontonah married one of the Curtis boys with whom she was raised. Her name was repeated among her Stafford County descendants even up to the twentieth century.
Information about the 1666 war against the Patawomeke Tribe is vital in understanding their fate. The following is taken from the Minutes of the General Council and General Court of Colonial Virginia, edited by H.R. McIlwaine.

Meeting at James City, July the 10th 1666....It is therefore ordered for revenge
of the former and for the prevention of future mischiefs that the towns of Monzation,
Nanzimond, and Port Tobacco with the whole nation of the Doegs and Potomacks be
forthwith prosecuted with war to their utter destruction if possible and that their
women and children and their goods or as much of it as shall be taken to be disposed
of according to instructions as shall be issued from the Right Honourable Governor. And
it is further ordered that the said war be managed by such officers with such numbers
of men and by such ways and means as the Governor shall think fit.

The book "Pocahontas's People", by Helen C. Rountree, states (p95) that in July 1665 (apparently this should be 1666, per the General Coucil minutes above) war was declared on the Patawomekes, and states, "The outcome of the war is uncertain, but the Patawomecks disappear from the surviving English records thereafter." On the same page it is further stated that in June 1666, the English Governor ordered the Rappahannock County militia to attack and exterminate the Indians within reach, with permission to sell captive women and children into servitude. It should be noted that the domain of the Patawomekes straddled the adjoining counties of Stafford and Rappahannock at that time.

The fate of Chief Wahanganoche, King of the Patawomeke was as follows: He was taken to Williamsburg, Va in 1662 and tried by the court there on charges brought against him and others by Capt. Giles Brent. He was acquitted of all charges and was allowed to return home. Chief Wahanganoche was apparently given a silver medallion during this time, by the Virginia Assembly. (Henings Statutes, vol 2 p 142) After the trial, Chief Wahanganoche and his company headed back to Passipatanzy, but the old chief never made it back home. Chief Wahanganoche's silver medallion was unearthed in Caroline County in the early 1860's, in a area that was logically in the path of the chief on his way home from Williamsburg. A letter written on 1 April 1664 by Col John Catlett to his cousin in England, telling of the events of the past year, told of the capture and trial of the "King of Potomek", indicating that he was, in Catlett's belief, unjustly acquited. He told of the death of the chief on his way home after his release and believed that he got what he deserved. Chief Wahanganoche's death is not described, and it is not clear whether it was natural or by murder.

15 Merged 2 people, need to verify all info for her. (birthdays were 32 years apart, marriage date the same to 2 different husbands... hmmm...) Carson, Lydia (I2633)
16 On September 26, 1994, Joseph Daniel was born early. I believe that was because he was so eager to get started in life. He began capturing hearts everywhere he went from that day on.

His first school was Whittier (which was the school that had the first Black principal in Denver, Rachel Noel) and he was so advanced by kindergarten that his teacher recommended that he apply for a GT (Gifted and Talented) school, which he did. While at Whittier, he attended a School Board meeting one night with his father, and someone handed him a sign. His photograph was published the next day in the Denver Post, holding a sign demanding smaller class sizes. Later that year, he was chosen by the superintendant to represent Whittier at a ground-breaking ceremony for the new playground addition.

Dr. Diana Howard tested him for entry into the Polaris program at Crofton (which was Denver's first public school) but his score wasn't good enough to gain entry. Dr. Howard went to bat for him, and called him back the next day. She had a different test ready, and he passed with flying colors! He attended the Polaris program for six years, first at Crofton, then at Ebert. In school he learned to fold origami and to count to 10 in Japanese, and he was befriended by Mr. Takimoto, a prominate business leader, who gave him free edimame beans every time they met, about once a week. He wrote a letter to, and received a reply from, President Bush.

He learned to play violin in first grade, then played clarinet for 3 years, then switched to bass clarinet. Later he learned to play trumpet as well. Outside of school, Joey joined a band called The Jazz Garden, supervised by Jeff Young and sponsored by the African American Leadership Institute, and performed at several venues, including Denver's Race for the Cure, Juneteenth, and Fiddlers Green.

He took Tai Kwan Do lessons and worked up to a Green Belt, winning several trophies and ribbons for his skill in competition. He went on to train in Kun Tao Silat with Guru Aric Fowler. Silat is an Indonesian martial art in which his uncle Randall is a master. He belonged to the Crofton Chess Club. He played online games and designed his own. He was a competitor at heart. It didn't matter if it was strategic or physical, whether it was from another player, Nature's barriers, or his own body's limitations, he met every challenge head-on. Did I mention his passion for basketball? He spent every available moment practicing. Eventually it paid off. He grew to be taller than his dad.

While still in elementary school, Joey took a 700-mile motorcycle trip through the mountains with his father to New Mexico and back.

He was selected to join the Lonnie Porter Leadership Academy (later the Porter-Billups Leadership Academy) and attended for six weeks every summer, successfully completing the program. He went to Morey Middle school and belonged to the school band. He registered for East High School, but ended up going to Heritage High School in Littleton.

Joey became friends with Kyle Flaming, a Realtor and Developer, who took an interest and included him in a camping and river rafting excursion and also in a four-wheeling outing in Moab, Utah. Moab was where he first drove a car, Kyle's Jeep.

Joey played football in the PAL league, and his team, the Disciples, won the division championship, so he brought home another trophy to add to his accomplishments.

Then he wanted to learn to box. When he found that the Curtis Park Recreation Center was closed, he took the initiative to find and join the Denver Athletic Club on 20th Street. There he started lifting weights, which he continued to do for the rest of his life.

Joey attended summer camp every year at the Colorado Mountain Ranch, in the mountains west of Boulder, where he loved to ride and care for horses and go mountain boarding. He was offered a position as a counselor, but chose to spend more time with his friends instead.

Joey is loyal to his friends 100%. Your secret was safe with him. He knew more than he revealed, you could tell by his eyes. He was a natural poker player. He was confident, yet humble. He was a genuine team player, always ready to help, without waiting to be asked, and willing to give credit to others without demanding recognition for himself. He had your back.

When he was 14, ready to go to high school, both his parents became suddenly unable to care for him. His brother Andrew stepped up to the plate and became his guardian. Imagine how Andrew had to go from carefree bachelor to the parental role of his teenage brother overnight! Andrew has my everlasting deepest respect for accepting that responsibility without question or hesitation. Joey was self-determined, and had already been making most of his own decisions since he was about 13. And he made good decisions! Now Andrew says there was nothing else to consider; that's what brothers do, just as he has always been there for both his brothers, from day one and forever.

Through the turmoil Joey stayed in school and graduated. He continued lifting weights and joined the rugby team. (It takes leather balls to play rugby.) He remained in contact with his friends from the old neighborhood and made new friends. He was a true friend and he will always live in our hearts. In his senior year he left Andrew's custody and moved in with James Pagano and his mother Mary Kay, and became one of the family. Later he moved in with Jeff Korona Pollio and his mother Karen, and again was part of the family. Other families gave him refuge as well, Nathan's and Angel's come to mind, and I know there are others who are here today. Words cannot express my gratitude to all of you.

There is an African saying that it takes a village to raise a child. Thank God he found the best of the best and thrived, against the odds. Joey was a winner because he was careful to find the right path to his goals and stayed on that path by sheer determination. He was successful because he wanted to be, and he worked hard to achieve success in all that he attempted. He earned it. He is a role model for all of us. His love for Jesus and his parents and his grandparents never wavered. We will appreciate him more as time goes on. His gifts to us were his personality and his love of life.

Upon graduating high school, he enlisted in the US Marine Corps, which he had planned to do for more than a year in conversations with the local recruiter. Probably the proudest moment in his life was the day he graduated Boot Camp in San Diego. He became an active reservist. He enrolled in college.

He loved the Platte River corridor, he walked, ran, biked, floated through it. Only a few weeks before he died, he had changed his Facebook cover photo to be the Platte River, and his profile picture also had the river in the background. He died doing what he loved, with people he loved and who loved him. He lived life as fully as anyone could, every day, and he was successful. A part of me went with him, but part of him stayed with me. It becomes my duty to recognize and nurture and honor that part of him, so that his spirit can live and grow in my heart forever. God bless you Joey. I am proud to have known you.

GOODWIN, Joseph Daniel (I451)
17 On the war front, the Battle of Stone’s River was now in full swing, with the Union trying to successfully suppress a heavy Confederate offensive.[2]

Lincoln had been planning to release the monumental document that was the Emancipation Proclamation for roughly 100 days. During that time, the idea that the war between the North and the South would end quickly had been sharply erased from the minds of all Americans. Although the anticipated deadline for the release of the Emancipation Proclamation was the main focus around the Country, the bloody war still had to be fought, even on New Years Eve. The Battle of Stone’s River transpired close to the Southern boarders of Tennessee, where, according to one account of a Union soldier, the Confederates swarmed them first, hoping to gain ground in what would end up being an important strategic position.[3] The soldier describes seeing a huge swarm of Confederates, as well as the ensuing panic that followed the sudden charge. The sensation, according to the soldier, was similar to “the passage of a swarm of bees.”[4] Each man had to lie as flat as possible to avoid getting hit with the spraying bullets.[5] It took more than three days to force a Confederate retreat, but with the victory, Union forces were now free to use Tennessee as a gateway that fed deeper into Southern territory. This was in fact the same territory where General Sherman’s well renowned “March to the Sea” began.[6]

The signing of the Emancipation Proclamation had indeed reached the soldiers on January 1st, 1863. Most had to wait to celebrate as the battle was still intensifying, but Union soldiers were still left to remark on what a historic moment this would be. When the battle was over, one Union solider reflected how “before this battle, the outlook for our country was very dark and threatening.”[7] But with the battle won and the Proclamation implemented, soldiers began to see their triumph as an even more important victory than what was originally realized. The same soldier later wrote, “Had General Rosecrans’ Army been defeated…it would have greatly increased our danger
