Biography* Samuel Gould moved to Brookfield Massachusetts sometime between 1740 and
1747. He was a Deacon of the second church (now the first) of North
Brookfield. He was, in 1748, one of the organizers of the new precinct.

In 470 Years of Service, Stanley H. Fidler writes:

We descend from his oldest son Samuel, born 1701 who married
Mehitable Stiles in 1725. In 1747 he moved to Brookfield,
Massachusetts, about firty (50) miles from his old homestead in
Topsfield. The Stiles family was one of the oldest and most
respected families of Massachusetts, all being prominently
mentioned in military, town and church affairs. Samuel Gould upon
his arrival in Brookfield soon became affiliated with church
affairs as it is noted in Temple's history of Brookfield, that the
following year 1748, a petition dated December 5th, was presented
to the town, signed by sixty-three tax payers, asking that a new
meeting house be build and to be known as the Second precinct and
I find the names of Samuel Gould, Sr. and Benjamin Gilbert on the
list of petitioners and living on farms adjoining.

The senior Samuel Gould died 1791 and is buried by the side of his
wife in north Brookfield. He lived to be ninety years of age.

Fidler also notes that the church organized above was (in 1925) still in
existence and was known as the First Church of Brookfield.

Biography* Nathan Gould was in Captain Woolcotts' Co. in 1757, and was in the campaign
against crown point in 1775.

The birthdate of Nathan Gould is variously reported as 8 January and 18
January 1734. The date of his marriage has been alternately seen listed as
1756.

Nathan left Charlemont, Massachusetts for Virginia (West Virginia) in 1816. He
traveled with Aaron Gould (who, I believe, was his cousin... the son of his
Uncle Moses). Nathan was 82 years old when he made the trip... and he died
within two weeks of arriving.

His brother, Jonathan Gould, fought and died in the Revolutionary War.

His son, Paschal Paoli, was named for the Corsican General (but died young).

In 470 Years of Service, Stanley H. Fidler writes:

Nathan and Martha Gilbert Gould moved to Charlemont, Massachusetts
in 1782 or shortly after the death of Martha's mother Ester
Perkins, aged ninety-one (91). They settled in what was later
known as Gould Hollow. Nathan's father Samuel went with him but
died in 1791, and his body was taken back to Brookfield and buried
beside his wife. Before moving to Charlemont, Nathan, with his
brother Samuel, served in Colonel Nathaniel Wolcott's company made
up in Brookfield in the French and Indian War and fought at the
battle of Crown Point. Martha Gilbert, Nathan's wife, had two
brothers in the Revolutionary War, one of them Captain Daniel
Gilbert lived to be ninety-six (96) years of age, the other Joseph
was a Colonel and fought at the battle of Bunker Hill. When war
first broke out and the alarm at Lexington was sounded by Paul
Revere April 19th, 1775, Colonel Joseph Gilbert headed a company
of minute men and marched to Roxbury.

Church Records of Charlemont, Massachusetts, Church of Christ.

October 30, 1788. The following members of the Gould family
signed the article of the confession of faith approved and voted
by the Church of Christ in Charlemont.

Nathan Gould and Martha, his wife, Aaron Gould, Lydia Gould,
Jeremiah Gould and Nathan Gould, Jr.

A list of church members in 1832, same church, does not show any
Goulds. Conclude they had all moved away although in 1807 over 70
Goulds were living in Gould Hollow at one time.

Under date of August 25, 1791, records state Nathan Gould, Jr.
Olive, the wife of John Gould, Lydia Gould, were received into
fellowship and communion of the church. States also that the
following persons wee received in consequence of letters of
recommendation from the church in Heath.

Nathan Gould and his wife.
Jeremiah Gould, Aaron Gould and wife.
John Gould and wife Lydia.
April 27, 1792, Nathan Gould was admitted
May 13, 1792 Nathan Gould was admitted.

Samuel Gould and Aaron Gould, Jr. and wife Lydia and Robert Young
were admitted.

February 6, 1799 the following were among those signing request
for Mr. Eastman to become pastor and Nathan Gould headed the
committee to notify Mr. Eastman. Another Nathan Gould and Nathan
Gould, Jr., also Jeremiah Gould. Mr. Eastman declined, however,
and October 15, 1799 Jeremiah Gould, Nathan Gould, and Aaron Gould
signed a call to Mr. Field.

December 13, 1807 Samuel and Aaron Gould were admitted.

September 1, 1816. The church voted a recommendation of Mr.
Nathan Gould, Mr. Nathan Gould, Jr., and Ester his wife for their
use in their intended migration from this place.

June 29, 1817, upon a request from certain brethren residing at
Randolph, Virginia, for letters to enable them to unite with
others dwelling in their own vicinity in church relation. The
request coming from Randolph, Virginia, dated June 2, 1817. voted
to defer matter to Lord's day after next.

July 13th, 1817, attended to the request alluded to in the above
vote and voted to recommend Lydia the wife of Robert Young.

In Charlemont Massachusetts, Frontier Village and Hill Town, authored by Allan
Healy and published in 1965, the following is written about Nathan Gould:

The 1774 town list shows many other men whose names are still
today borne in the town: Ebenezer Fales; Jeremiah Gould;
Nathaniel Stephen, and Valentine Harris; William Hartwell;
William, Samuel, and Abner Negus; Job Warfield; John, Gershom, and
Nahum Ward, who lived on Buckland side - and Wards are still
prominent in Buckland.

Most of these men came with the Lancastrians - Warfield came from
near Hingham. Joseph Wilder, Jr. owned land along the West Oxbow
Brook, called Wilder's River on the old maps. Goulds settled up
Hartwell's Brook - it was called Gould Hollow. Aaron, Jeremy, and
Nathan Gould came here shortly before the Revolution. Aaron build
a frame house in 1777 and had a tanner in the meadow to its rear.
The old vats and the stone which trundled on the bark to mash it
are still there on Warren Albees's farm. Nathan had a saw mill on
the brook. They were supposed to have been engaged in
counterfeiting and one night in 1808, after hearing that they were
to be arrested, they packed up all they owned and moved out, with
their pigs in their ox carts and their cows tied behind. They
settled in French Creek, Virginia. The church there wrote back to
the Charlemont Church for letters recommending them and copies of
their confessions.

Research needs to be done to ascertain the above dates. If Nathan left
Charlemont in 1808 with Aaron and Aaron arrived in French Creek in 1808, but
Nathan did not arrive until 1816... where was Nathan in the intervening years?

Note that it is reported that Nathan's son Gilbert Gould, daughter, Lydia
Gould Young and son-in-law Robert Young made the trip from Charlemont to
French Creek in October and November 1811.

Biography* B.A. Gould's history puts the date of birth at 25 February 1779. The IGI
lists the christening of a Benjamin Gilbert on 11 July 1779 at Franklin
(Ashfield) Massachusetts.

Gilbert Gould left Charlemont, Massachusetts in 1811 and came with the
Robert and Lydia Young family to French Creek, West Virginia. His sister,
Lydia, was married to Robert Young. Cutright writes:

The glowing letters of the members of Aaron Gould's family to their
Charlemont neighbors induced Robert Young and Gilbert Gould in the
year 1811 to move here with their families. They went deeper into
the wilderness than any others had heretofore gone, settling on
lands once owned by Rev. James Young near Hollygrove.

And, in his thesis, Morgan M. Brooks:

In 1811, Robert Young and Robert (sic) Gould bought (sic) their
families, making the journey in covered wagons drawn by three
horses. It took seven weeks to make the trip starting from
Charlemont over the Mowhawk Trail to Springfield, Massachusetts, to
Hartford, Connecticut, where it intersects twith the old Boston to
New York post road; thence across the Hudson via Hoboken Ferry;
thence to Philadelphia to Baltimore, where the old Braddock road,
started in 1749, begins. Over this road to Hagerstown, thence over
North mountain, Sideling Hill mountain, Polish mountain to
Cumberland, thence through the Narrows where Wills creek breaks
through the Allegheny mountains; thence over the Big Savage
mountain, Little Savage mountain, Negro mountain, Keyser's ridge,
Deer Crossing mountain, via Fort Necessity, Braddock's grave, via
Hopwood to Point Marion, Morgantown, Fairmont, Webster, Buckhannon,
to French Creek.

Also:

It has been said that the people who settled the French Creek
community were zealously religious- So that their annals are
replete with events and facts pertaining to the religious life. It
is said that from the first, 1811 or 1812, a few families met every
Sabbath for religious worship. Having no preacher they adopted the
custom of having someone read a sermon. This practice they
maintained for half a century in the absence of a preacher. Though
their singing was poor, they persisted in it (French Creek is not
alone in this practice).

They were, of course, Presbyterians, yet a class or congregation
was not organized until 1819.

Because of overlapping landgrants (not an uncommon problem in those times)
he was forced to purchase his land twice.

Gilbert Gould served in the War of 1812 and was a Captain.

During the Civil War, B.A. Gould's history indicates that "the whole
family were loyal to their country throughout the rebellion, although
bitterly persecuted. None ever owned a slave."

He held the office of Elder for 54 years until his death.

A 1930 copy of "The Pioneer" contains an article of Dr. O.L. Perry on "Some
French Creek Reminiscenses". He writes:

Many of the elderly people among us will remember two old veterans
of the War of 1812, Captain Gilbert Gould and Daniel Haines, who
attended services in this church and always sat together in the
corner where the choir now sits. These two old veterans connected
the congregations of sixty years ago with another period in the dim
past at or near the time the first settlers came from New England.
These two old men were heroes in the minds of the youths of that
day.

Gould lived to the age of 98. The cause of death listed in the death
register is "fever". Basic info from Upshur Co. Death Register:

Biography* References to the Frelinghuysen family are found as early as the 12th
century in Westphalia and in the 14th century in Dortmund and Stromberg.

Theodorus Jacobus was baptized on 6 November 1692. Although his place of
birth is frequently listed as "Holland," it seems definite that he was not
a native of Holland, but of Germany. In a preface to a volume of sermons
he wrote "It is hoped that the spelling will be an objection to no one, for
the author is not a Hollander by birth". The Frelinghuysen family
apparently belonged to the Dutch-Westphalian border families who were Dutch
in religion, culture, blood, and sympathies, though living in Germany.

Theodorus Jacobus left Holland in 1719 (20?) and came to America on the
"King George" in answer to a need for Dutch Ministers in the colonies.

His congregation was at Raritan, New Jersey and he took charge there on 31
January 1720. He was a moral reformationist and evangelist. He had many
(well documented) "struggles" with his congregation, who rebelled against
his liberal espousing of piety and he was a forerunner of the "Great
Awakening."

He and Eva had 7 children, 5 of them sons. Each of the sons went into
the ministry and both daughters married ministers. . His oldest son,
Theodore was lost at sea, and two of the others, Jacobus and Ferdinandus
died of smallpox. Of the sons, only John had children (2) and he too died
at an early age.

The New York Daily Tribune, on May 11, 1884 wrote:

Beginning in 1719, for 28 years he had charge of the first six
churches of this region - at New Brunswick, Three Mile Run, Six
Mile Run, Raritan, North Branch, and Harlingen. He lived at Three
Mile Run, and at his death in 1747 was buried in the old burying
ground of the Six Mile Run Church, now Elm Ridge Cemetery. The
monument bears the inscription:

Rev. Theodorus Jacobus Frelinghuysen
born at
Lingen, East Fresland, in 1691

Frelinghuysen's motto was "Lau dem non quaero; culpam non timeo" - I seek
not praise; I fear not blame.

Thompson: The first suggestion of a College for the education of the youth
of the Dutch Reformed Church, is due to Rev. Theodorus Jacobus
Frelinghuysen. The charter for Queens College (now Rutgers) was obtained
March 20th, 1770.

Biography* Pierce's, "Fiske and Fisk Family" records:

From the Judicial Court records of Essex County it is stated that
"The Wife of Thomas Fiske was presented for wearing a tiffany
hoode," and was sentenced to pay 10 shillings fine and two
shillings six pence fees to the court in Oct., 1652. Verily the
court must have had a royalty on another make of "hoodes."

Biography* George Perkins writes that the descendants of John Perkins no doubt
themselves descended from Peter Morley, esq. (alias Perkins) who lived at
the time of Richard II, and was an officer in the household, or Steward of
the Court of Sir Hugh Despenser about 1300 (the name coming from
"Peterkins".

Perkins came over (with his wife, Judith Gates (or Gater)b, and his 5
oldest children) from England on the ship "Lyon". The ship left Bristol
on 1 December 1630 and 67 days later arrived at Nantasket on 5 February
1631. One of the other passengers on the Lyon was the famous Roger
Williams. The following extract from "Prince's Annals of New England"
gives a graphic account of the condition of the colony at the time of
their arrival and also of their stormy voyage.

      As the winter (1629-30) came on provisions are very scarce (in the
      Massachusetts Bay) and the people necessitated to feed on clams and
      muscles, and ground nuts and acorns; and these got with much
      difficulty in the winter season. Upon which people grew much tired
      and discouraged; especially when they hear that the governor
      himself has his last batch of bread in the oven. And many are the
      fears of the people that Mr. Pierce, who was sent to Ireland for
      provisions, is either cast away or taken by the pirates. Upon this
      a day of fasting and prayer to God for relief is appointed (to be
      on the sixth of February). But God, who delights to appear in the
      greatest straits, works marvellously at this time; for on February
      5, the very day before the appointed fast, in came the ship Lion,
      Mr. William Pierce master, now arriving at Nantasket, laden with
      provisions. Upon which joyful occasion the day is changed, and
      ordered to be kept (on the 22d) as a day of thanksgiving.

      [Note: George Perkins writes: This was probably the beginning of
      that now general custom of keeping Thanksgiving day, which is
      observed not only in New England but throughout the country.]

      February 8. The governor goes aboard the Lion riding at Long
      Island; (next day) the ship comes to an anchor before Boston (to
      the great joy of the people) where she rides very well,
      notwithstanding the great drifts of ice. And the provisions are by
      the governor, distributed to the people proportionable to their
      necessities.

      The Lion (had) set sail from Bristol December first, brought about
      twenty passengers, and had a very stormy passage; yet through God's
      mercy all the people came safe except one of the sailors, who had
      not far from our shore, in a tempest having helped to take in the
      spritsail, as he was coming down fell into the sea, where after
      long swimming was drowned, to the great dolour of those in the
      ship, who beheld so lamentable a spectacle, without being able to
      help him; the sea was so high and the ship drove so fast before the
      wind, though her sails were taken down.
     
The Perkins family stayed in Boston for two years (where their youngest
child was born) and then moved on to Ipswich, where John held many town
offices.

The daughter of John Perkins, Mary Perkins (Bradbury), was tried for
witchcraft and convicted in 1692 but her execution was delayed and she was
released when her delusion waned. Her husband and clergyman testified for
her and 117 of her neighbors courageously signed a petition praising her
character. Mary was married to Captain Thomas Bradbury of Salisbury.

The probate of John Perkin's estate is recorded at the Probate Office in
Salem Massachusetts. The will was made on 28 March 1654.

"Once married, Dina embarked on a voyage across the North Atlantic. During the voyage a terrible storm arose, battering the boat. Its wooden hull sprang a leak. The pumps were unable to keep up with the flow, and the captain dispaired of saving the vessel. However, Dina calmly sat in a chair tied to one of the masts and prayed for their safety. As she prayed, the water stopped rushing into the hold. The pumps were able to empty the ship of water that had come in. The ship was saved. Later it was found that a swordfish was wedged in the open seam of the hull, effectively stopping the leak. The chair Dina used was called the "Ebenezer chair,' and she used it throughout her life.

Employment* Surveyor 
Biography* Poffenbarger Papers:

Jonas Smith was a surveyor by profession and the early division and location of lands incident to the settlement of Mason and adjacent counties, kept his time completely occupied. His maps and surveys, many of which are yet preserved and of record, are the admiration of knowing ones of the present day.

Soon after reaching Point Pleasant he became "mine host" of Poague's Tavern. Seeing the demand at this important river junction he erected the "Virginia House," corner of 1st Street and Front Street at the head of the wharf and ferry landing. The Virginia House was then the most luxurious hostlery between Wheeling and Cincinnati. It was one of the earliest brick buildings of the town made from hand manufactured brick, with wide halls, a great dining room, larger parlor and spacious bed rooms.

It was in slave times and the graciousness and affability of the host and his charming family were reflected in the manners of every servant. There were then few carriage roads so that except by river most of the travel was done on horseback and a livery stable was of necessity a part of every hotel equipment so that from the time that the guest arrived and threw his reign to the attendant slave boy and was met by a smiling porter and greeted by the charming host, he felt that it was good to be in "Old Virginia."

As the hand of age was laid heavily upon Mr. Smith he decided to retire from active business and The Virginia House was sold to a Mr. Cargill who emigrating to the west, the house reverted to Nathan Smith. He sold it to Col. Charles T. Beal, who owned it and rented it down through its declining years until in the early nneties it was burned and in 1901 the Beale heirs sold the lot to Mr. George Comstock who moved the old Robert Mitchell house from the opposite side of the street in order to clear the grounds for Tu-Endie-Wei Park.

The Virginia House in its earliest days became the social fountain of the old town. Its proprietor Mr. Jonas Smith and his family were people of great culture.

Before coming to Western Virginia in 1814, then considered the "Far West," Jonas Smith had married in New Jersey Dinah Frelinghuysen, a descendant of Theodarus Jacobus Frelinghuysen, founder of the celebrated family of New Jersey, bearing that name, who was not only in 1747 regarded as the most learned and eminent Divines in America, but his sermons were translated and published in Europe. He was succeeded by his son, Rev. John Frelinghuysen. The founder of the family of the next generation was Frederick, who, when but 21 years of age, was chosen a member of the Provincial Congress of New Jersey, and in 1778 represented New Jersey in the Continental Congress. As a Captain of the Militia, he participated at the Battle of Trenton. He was commissioned a Colonel of Militia for his county and became active throughout the Revolution, participating at Springfield, Elizabeth, Monmouth, and at the close of the revolution was chosen to a seat in the Senate of the United States in 1793, resigning in 1796. Theodore, the brother of Dinah, became a distinguished citizen of New Jersey, holding many places of honor among which was that of Candidate for Vice-President on the ticket with Henry Clay in 1844. Of the children born to Jonas Smith and Dinah Frelinghuysen, his wife, Nathan married Ann Roseberry, Nehemiah married Rachel, the daughter of Adam Wetzel, Geo. W. Smith married Miss Staats, of Jackson County. Miss Mary Jane Smith became a teacher as was her sister, Nancy, and after the death of her parents, with her spinster sister, Levinia, erected the cottage on Main street, between 8th and 9th streets now occupied by their nieces, Misses Margaret and Cornelia Smith, where they resided up to the time of their death's, both of which occured in the seventies. While James Smith emigrated in early manhood to Illinois, where he maried and reared a family.

So dependent were these early settlers upon each other for business and social advantages that they became almost like one family, and the intimacy between the families of Jonas Smith and other families in the neighborhood resulted in the marriage among others of Nathan Smith to Ann Roseberry, daughter of John Roseberry a revolutionary soldier of whom we will write later.

Nathan Smith followed his father's profession of civil engineer until April, 3rd, 1855, when he died at 54 years of age. He inherited a heart big enough to not only take interest in all the Smiths, but all of his world, and he inherited and transmitted the admirable traits of the Frelinghuysen's so that through him was transplated to Virginia soil that of the best blood of New England.

In the old cemetery in Point Pleasant, repose the ashes of Jonas Smith and Dinah his wife. Upon the latter's tombstone is the inscription "Dinah, wife of Jonas Smith born May 9th, 1774, died June 22, 1833." Upon the same stone is inscribed the births and deaths of other children than those above mentioned. "F.F. Smith, born Dec., 1811, died June 14, 1822." "Jonas, born Oct 6, 1829 d. May 27, 1835. Cornelia, born July 9, 1832, died June 5, 1835, and the following "Mary Jane, born Dec., 16, 1836, died Dec., 16, 1836, daughter of Nathan."

THe other children born to Nathan Smith and Ann Roseberry, his wife, who lived to maturity were: John Peter Roman Bureau, named for the distinguished French emigrant to Galapolis, Ohio, of that name and daughters, Misses Margaret and Cornelia, unmarried and Maria L., now deceased, who was the wife of Rev. Ulysses Prebble and Flora, the wife of Charles Jones, both of whom are now deceased and Sarah, who married Franklin Guthrie.

Descending from Charles Jones and Flora Smith, his wife, are Charles E. Jones and sister Mrs. Anna Jones (Mrs. P.F.) Ryan, of this place.

The Smith name is preserved here by Col. Smith's two sons, Messrs. Griff T., and Homer Smith.

The marriage of Nathan Smith and Ann Roseberry above referred to, united two of the old and influential families of the county. The father of Ann Roseberry was John Roseberry a Revolutionary soldier who not only participated in the opening of the Revolution at Point Pleasant but distinguished himself throughout the Revolution enduring among others, the hardships at Valley Forge.4

Biographybt 1826 - 1890 The Virginia House, Point Pleasant, Mason Co., West Virginia; Description of The Virginia House from "Looking Backward - Point Pleasent Now and In Retrospection as Viewed by Those Who Know the Story" - Article II, published in the Point Pleasant State Gazette on 29 Sept 1910:

Crossing First Street on Fourth Street, N.E. corner, the Virginia House was built in 1826, by Jonas Smith the first local surveyor of the town. He had after coming her from New Jersey, in 1814, occupied Poagues Tavern. Seeing the demands for a better hotel he erected the most commodious hotel in the Kanawha Valley. It was probably the best between Wheeling and Cincinnati. With true devotion to the state of his adoption, he called it "The Virginia House." The name continued throughout its palmy days, when it was the leading hostlery, later, when it yielded place to the new Klein House, and still later when it became a second rate boarding house, and last when it became a veritable "martin box" for indigent tenants. Finally it was destroyed by fire in the early ninties. The lot remained vacant until 1901, when it was purchased by Geo. Comstock, whoe residence is the old Mitchell house from across the street.

The Virginia House was a two story brick, with centre hall. The upper room was used as a lobby and office. The lower front room was a parlor, and in the rear on first Street opening from the hall was the dining room and kitchen. It often did duty as a ball room. In the palmy days of the old hotel it was, largely because of the proprietors of the family, a social centre. Here the town and county folks were wont to gather and enjoy the festive dance. Here Jonas Smith died. His heirs sold the property to a Mr. Cargill who emigrated to the West without paying for the property. It reverted back to the estate. Nathan Smith sold it to Col. Charles T. Beale, who owned it until fire consumed it and the Beale heirs sold the lot. The building was made of hard made brick, and the brick yard stood beyond J.W. C. Heslops residence on Jones Street. The earth was dug out where Second Street extends back, and into which Jones Street runs. Of course the brick were made in the most primative way. The process was slow and altho the wages were low, as compared with now, the manufacture of bricks was an expensive luxury, and brick houses were the exception and not the rule.

Biography* Mills, William Stowell, V. 56, NE Hist. & Gen Reg:

Austin (also known as "Augustine") Kilham came to America on the
ship "Mary Anne" in 1637 with his wife and at least 3 children.
They lived at Salem for two or three years and at Dedham until
1649. From there Kilham moved to Wenham. It is on record at
Wenham that he took letters of dismissal from the Church in Dedham,
14th of the 5th month of 1649, when "Brother and Sister Kilham
passed the tryall, and next Lord's day were taken into the
covenant" In 1653 when pastor Reverend John Fiske left Wenham and
settled at Chelmsford, Austin Kilham and six other heads of
families planned to go with him; but for some unexplained reason
Austin and one other changed plans and remained at Wenham.

Pope's Pioneers of Massachusetts indicates that Kilham was a "measurer" at
Salem in 1637 and a goatkeeper in 1640. Austin and Alice were admitted to
the Church at Dedham on 28 June 1640. He was made a Freeman on 2 June
1641.

Ancestry of Tommie Glenn Stemm , III
Biography* Records show that he indentured himself as a grocer on 9 April, 1616...
for a 12 year stint as an apprentice.

He was made a citizen of Norwich, England on 15 August, 1628.

Came to Boston in 1637, aboard the "Rose" of Yarmouth, England. W.S.
Appleton's "Ancestry of Priscilla Baker" contains a copy of his examination
before embarking. It reads:

April 8th 1637. The examination of John Baker borne in
Norwich in Norffolcke, Grocar aged 39 years, and
Elizabeth his wife aged 31 yeares with 3 Children,
Elizabeth, John and Thomas, and 4 Sarvants, Marey
Alxarson, aged 24 yeares, Anne Alxarson, aged 20 yeares,
Bridgett Boulle aged 32 yeares and Samuell Arres aged 14
yeares ar all desiroues to goe for Charles Towne in New
England ther to inhabitt and remaine.

He came originally to Charleston, but settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts and
later in Topsfield.

His sons, John and Thomas were "wild" and frequently in trouble with the
law. They were once found guilty of aiding an imprisoned "horse thief" to
escape from jail and were sentenced to "be severely whipt wth tenn stripes
apeece forthuith, & be bound to their good behaviour wth sureties of twenty
pounds apeece till the next county Court at Ipsuich". The sentence was
suspended and, eventually, the fine reduced.

John Baker was alive as late as 2 March 1680, so lived to be at least 82
years old.

Biography* From "Gilberts of New England", edited by Geoffrey Gilbert:

John Gilbert was a soldier in King Philip's War (Bodge, "Soldiers
in King's Philip's War", p 449; Felt, "History of Ipswich, Essex
and Hamilton", p 324).

John Gilbert's tombstone is in a cemetery known as "the Hamlet",
now known as "Hamilton, MA". Deacon John Gilbert left no will,
and there is no record of the settlement of his estate in the
Essex County Probate Court.

The IGI lists his marriage date as 27 September 1677.

Biography* Leonard Hyre came from Benken, (Basel) Switzerland in 1737 along with his
parents.

He went first to Tulpehocken Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania and later
to the Eastern part of the panhandle of Western West Virginia (then Augusta
County, later Hampshire, Hardy, and Grant County).

Leonhard Hyre's will was made on 7 April 1783 and was probated on 17 June
1786 in Hardy County, West Virginia. Possessions listed in his will
include:

1 windmill
8 beehives
cooper and shoemaker tools
2 stills

Swisher:

While a complete corrected genealogy of the Upshur County branch of
the family seems impossible, the Hyres of that County are descended
from one or the other of the two pioneer brothers (John and
Jacob).
