Descendants of Francis King

Generation No. 1

1.  FRANCIS1 KING was born November 25, 1757 in Frederick county, Maryland1,2, and died October 24, 1830 in Ithaca, Tompkins, New York3,4.  He married MARY JONES October 31, 1780 in Jones family farm, Somerset co., New Jersey, daughter of JOHN JONES and AGNES.  She was born August 15, 1763 in New Jersey, and died May 20, 1844 in Ithaca, Tompkins, New York.

Notes for FRANCIS KING:

The truth as to the origin of Francis King is unknown to me.  The Howland family always said that Francis King was born in Maryland.  This story apparently was widely accepted among various King descendants as all the applications for the SAR and DAR that I have seen say that he was born in Maryland, but no one says where.  The family tradition was that Francis King was living in or around Anne Arundel co., Maryland, about twenty miles from where he enlisted at the time of his enlistment into the American Revolutionary Army.    It was always said that he was born in Frederick county, Maryland.

I have not found a record of Francis King's birth or a family to associate with him.   I  recently discovered  a reference to a Francis King who died a year after our Francis King was born.  He had served during the French and Indian war in Frederick county Maryland.   If this is his origin, it may help to explain why there is no record of him. Frederick county was considered back country at this time, and it is likely that Francis faced plenty of difficult times growing up there in the 1760's and early 70's.  It is likely his time would have been spent learning the practical necessities for making a living,  farming, construction, hunting, fishing, maintenance, and making home brew. Francis King never learned to write, not  even his name.  This is demonstrated time and again in his making his mark on documents he was to sign.

The other story has its genesis in the Banfield Family Reunion and was published in the Cuba Patriot - Cuba, NY 5 July 1928.  It states that when James Banfield was twelve years old, he  and Francis King  were playing on the Royal lands in England.  While playing with sling shots, James killed a royal goose.  In fear for their lives, the boys stowed away on a ship that lay at anchor in London.  They were discovered after the ship sailed and worked on ship board during the passage to America. When they landed, they were sold into indenture by the captain to pay for their transport to the colony.

They served together during the American Revolution,  married sisters, and remained good friends for the remainder of their lives.  While there is good reason to doubt the first part of the story, the second part  is true.  Francis King and James Banfield served together in the 6th Maryland Line during the Revolution, they did marry sisters.   James Banfield married Tabitha Jones and Francis King married Mary Jones, and they both came to Ithaca and lived to the end of their days there.  Their descendants always referred to each other as cousins.

It was also said that James was the descendant of the noble Banfield line in England, and that the Jones were descendents of a royal Welsh line. [It was common in vanity genealogies at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century to make unsupportable claims of noble and royal linage.  Modern genealogy requires supporting documentation to back up a statement of descent.]

There are problems with the goose story.  The first problem with the story is that, according to their grave stones, James Banfield was 10 years older that Francis King.  For this tale to be true, Francis would have had to stow away with James when he was  age 2.   Further research has shown that James Banfield came over on a convict ship and was sold as an indentured convict.  This was a common enough event in those days.  It was the practice to take many a poor person and convict them of a minor offence, and then transport them to the colonies that were in need of cheap labor.  Over 50,000 English men, women and children were transported as ''convicts" before the Revolution.  One quarter of all those of English descent came to the colonies as an indenture, that were used primarily as labor contracts.  James Banfield could neither read or write and signed his will by making his mark.  Children of nobility would have been better educated by age 10 or 12.  His inability to sign his own name suggests a more common origin.

But could the story have been about Francis King and another friend, with James' name replacing the other mans so as to become more "acceptable" to later generations.  I found a Francis King and a John Johnson record bound out for passage from London in the Philadelphia archives.   I have come to believe, however,  that this is the wrong Francis King.   Ours would have been only 16 years old at the time. The term of indenture for this Francis King was only one year and nine months, while John Johnson was bound out for a term of four years.  Terms of indenture were often set by the value of ones labor, and for someone to serve only one year and nine months, they would have had to have a very special knowledge -- not something too likely for most illiterate 16 year olds.

Finally, I have not found any knowledge of the goose story of King descendants whose families were not in the upstate NY area in the 1920's when the story was first published.  Those that left there area earlier have had no knowledge of it, while those in the area have the same story almost word for word.  This further suggests a story of modern origin, and one in written form.  when one studies folklore, one looks for drift in the story over time.  There has been virtually none in this case.

The King and Howland family traditions are that Francis King was from Frederick County, Maryland.   He was born 25 Nov. 1757,  the date copied by his son, Alexander King,  into the family bible that later ended up in the National Archives to support the Revolutionary War Pension application.  Francis enlisted when age 20 on the 25 Feb 1777 at Carroll Manor or Alexandria, Anne Arundell Co. Md.  He served three years in the 6th Maryland Line during the American Revolution.  James Banfield's record can be found there as well.   National Archives records show that he fought in many battles which include:  the Battle of Brandywine, Battle of Long Island, Battle of Stony Point, Battle of Trenton, Battle of Germantown, and the Battle of Monmouth.  Historians will note that both the Battle of Brandywine and Long Island took place before the time of King's enlistment.  This means that Mary (Jones) King, his widow, made an error was applying for her widow's pension, or Francis had earlier service and may have been a member of a State militia.  There is no federal record of his early service.   On 10 Apr 1779 he was promoted to corporal.  Francis King was present on 1 January 1780, and was  mustered out of service on 25 Feb 1780, at or near Madison, New Jersey.

Both Francis King and James Banfield remained in the area,  as they soon became involved with the Jones sisters who lived on their father's farm in Somerset County, New Jersey.    On 31 Oct. 1780 both Francis King and James Banfield were married to the two Jones girls, Mary (b. 15 Aug 1763) and Tabitha (b. 1765) respectively.  The double wedding was performed by the Rev. Abner Sutton, a traveling Baptist minister.   Among others, the wedding was witnessed by Mary and Tabitha's cousin, Moses Barpo who later wrote a letter testifying to the fact in support of Mary's widow's pension.   His letter is part of the record in the National Archives. Moses Barpo's letter tells of the wedding at the farm.  He also states that they stayed on to help run the farm for at least a year, at which time Moses Barpo was married.

I speculate that John Jones, Mary and Tabitha's father may have been in poor health.   This may have been the reason that Tabitha married at a young age to the older James Banfield.    I find no further trace of John Jones, and can only speculate that his wife's name was Agnes, based on the fact that both King and Banfield name children Agnes.   I further speculate that the Jones found in the Township of Wantage, Sussex, New Jersey in 1793 are brothers to Mary and Tabitha.

Francis King, James Banfield  next appear on the New Jersey 1793 Military Census in the Township of Wantage in Sussex county, New Jersey  along with a Moses and a William Jones.   In the winter of 1799 Francis King, Mary and seven children left Wantage to seek a home in the new land known as the "Lake Country" and settled two miles south of Ithaca in a place called "South Hill."  They moved upon the ice a great part of the way along the Delaware River probably crossing over from Deposit to Windsor, down the Susquehanna River to Binghamton and Owego, and then across the country by the old Indian trail blazed with marked trees to there place of destination.  The journey occupied about three week with oxen and sleds.  They had in their team two pair of oxen and two cows, the cows being driven in yoke to make it handier to drive them, and the oxen doing most of the work.  At that time there was but one log house between Owego and Ithaca.

Although they settled on the "Military Tract", neither James nor Francis are among the first purchasers of land on the tract.  It now appears that neither received bounty lands in lieu of pay for service in the Revolution.  The Military Tract was made available for settlement in 1794/5 and immediately a great deal of land speculation took place. Property changed hands several times before King purchased his piece of wilderness on South Hill.  From a later land transaction that recently came to my attention, it appears that Moses Barpo and Francis King bought some land together as stated in a land deed transferring property to Jacob King from Mary King, Francis' widow, who states that it was originally purchased by the two of them.  A land sale deed dated 1821 where Mary King, of Tioga County sells 34 acres to Caleb Jessup of Columbia County, NY referred to to a deed from 1799 where James Pumpelly sold 34 acres to Francis King.

They moved to Ithaca with scanty possessions which included the old grandfather clock with all wooden works which is now (1999) owned by Nick Howland.  King also brought the old sergeant's sword that according to family lore is said to have been removed from a dead Hessian after one of the battles.  The sword was used as a cheese knife on the South Danby farm for many years and most recently as the ceremonial knife to cut the wedding cake at Charles B. Howland and Beth Saslow's marriage.  Charles is also in possession of King's powder horn.

Francis King took up land on South Hill, across the road from the school house which is still called the King's schoolhouse.   King's original house burned in 1827, and with it the King Family bible that he kept. His son, Alexander had copied the information recorded in it, and it is this copy of the birth and marriage pages that are included in the National Archive records.   The second house he built is still standing, though much altered.  At this place he ran a tavern for a time (1802 to at least 1807), the first stop for drink on the long haul from Ithaca to Owego, over which goods were carried from the head of navigation of St. Lawrence and Central New York waters at Ithaca, to the Susquehanna at Owego which carried the goods to the Chesapeake and Baltimore.

Francis King had a large family of some 11 children.  He used to call them in the morning by standing at the foot of the stairs and in a loud voice shouting the name of each one, beginning with the oldest and going down the line to the youngest.  It was said to be an impressive catalogue.

Francis King used to tell a story that illustrated frontier humor.  At a dance held somewhere on South Hill, the talk turned to experiences with wolves and stories were told of certain people having been attacked by them.  A young fellow present boasted that wolves held no terror for him and he would like to see them attack him.  Some of the men left the party early and concealed themselves in the woods along the path the young man would take.  He left the party very late and as he was going along the wooded road along, the concealed jokers began to howl like wolves.  The young fellow raised his gun and pointed it first one way and then another but could not see any animals, only hear their howls.  Presently his nerve gave way, he dropped his gun and climbed a tree.  There he remained until daylight, when the jokers showed themselves and began to rag him about his terrors in the night.  He never lived down the story but was always being twitted about the matter from that time on.

There must have been innumerable stories about the Revolution that were told and retold on long winter nights.  One that Francis King's grandson remembered and passed along was that he he often heard grandfather King say that the best meal he ever had was a cat which he succeeded in killing when in camp.  The old man used to add that he had often thought he would kill him another cat some time and see if it tasted as good as that first one--but he had never got around to do it.

Moses Barpo appears in Ithaca, and his wife Anne is buried in the King Cemetery in Ithaca.  I have been unable to trace any descendants, but couse Georgie has.

Notes for SENECA HOWLAND:

It was nearly sunset on a day in the latter part of March, 1805.  The past winter had been severe and the snow yet lay on the ground to the depth of two feet or more.  From the top of Breeds Hill (the old Dug Road, near the southwestern corner of the Military Tract of New York State) might have been seen a newly-chopped road winding up through the woods, the stumps still sticking up through the snow and the logs hardly dragged aside far enough for a team of oxen to pass along.  The snow lay as deep here as elsewhere in the woods and was only beaten down into a narrow path by the boots of some footman who had gone down to Mr. Sheneck's at the Half Way House in the valley (later Morg. Whites) for a jug of "groceries".

Along this rough wood-road two yoke of oxen were slowly pulling a long sleigh up the steep hill that rose westward from the upper valley of the Catatonk Creek.  On the sleigh were piled a few household goods and on them sat two young women, one carrying in her arms a baby seven months old and the other holding a little girl of two years.  The driver of the oxen, who tramped alongside was a young man of twenty-five, slim, straight and of medium height, his beardless face shaded by a heavy cap, beneath which looked out a pair of deep blue eyes.  His whole appearance betokened a long, hard journey.  Behind the sleight walked another young man of nineteen with an axe on his shoulder.

It is needless to say that the two men were Seneca Howland and his younger brother, James; while those in the sleigh were Seneca's wife, Polly Hagermann Howland and her sister, Betsy Hagerman with Seneca and Polly's two children, Levinah Anne (b. 2 Jan. 1803, d. 13 Sep 1805) and Charles Henry (b. 13 Aug 1804, d. 23 Sep 1805).  The family were coming from Fishkill in Duchess County, New York and were just arriving at their new home in the forest after a winter journey of some 250 miles through the Catskills and via Binghamton and Owego.

Seneca had been out the summer before and had chopped a small clearing in the woods and built a log house and barn.  There were at that time only three families in what was then called Haight's Settlement (later South Danby) - Old Haight on the Robinson farm (later known as the Hinds place); Old Nelson, on the Andrew Beer's place; and the Van Kleecks who lived on the flat-iron, as it was called, opposite the later Rankins place.  It took no small courage to bring a family to such a wild country at that time of year, but Seneca's early life had been such as to give him considerable self-reliance.

Seneca's father, Charles, a Quaker, was a wheelwright and he himself had learned that trade while young.  His first start in life, however, was obtained by delivering newspapers.  When about ten, he was hired as helper by a man who had a contract to deliver papers to the country about Fishkill.  In this way he earned $30.00 with which he bought a pony and thereafter carried on a considerable business of his own in delivering papers through the neighboring country.  Apparently, papers were not mailed to subscribers in those days but were sent to agents who undertook their delivery.  Seneca continued in the employment of one Nicolas Power until he was twenty years old, by which time he had saved the sum of 71.6.3, or $178.28.  Meanwhile, when time permitted, he also worked at his trade of Wheelwright and by the time he was twenty-one he owned a shop and five acres of land in Fishkill.  During the next four years he bought various other plots of ground and when, at the age of twenty-five, he moved with his wife and children to the frontier, he owned about twenty-four acres for which he had paid $615.50.

When he was twenty-one, Seneca had been appointed a constable of the township and, as the business of that office was considerable, he became fairly well known thereabouts.  In the village itself lived an old and aristocratic Dutch family, the Van Wycks.  Gen. John B. Van Wyck had recently acquired 6,000 acres of the old Watkins and Flint Purchase in south central New York, and needing someone to look after his interest there, offered the young constable the position on condition that he settle on the tract and act as Van Wyck's agent in the sale of the land to other settlers.

It was thus that the late winter and early spring of 1805 found Seneca moving out to the new country with his family and household goods.  With the help of his brother James, some land was cleared in time to sow crops that season.  But it is evident that his family never fully recovered from the hardships of the long journey through the winter snows of 1805. In the fall of that year his little daughter Levinah Anne, two and a half years old, died and ten days later his little son Charles Henry.  Nor was this all.  In the following winter his wife Polly succumbed to tuberculosis and died on the 17th of March, 1806, just a year from the time she came into the wilderness with her husband and children.   This left Seneca and his brother James alone, for his wife's sister, Betsy Hagerman, had gone back to Duchess Co., a month before Polly's death. But their work forced the two brothers to put all other thoughts aside. Seneca had taken up 400 acres of land and much new ground had to be cleared.  In the latter part of the summer of 1806 brother James, growing tired of the hardships of the frontier, also returned to Duchess County and Seneca was left entirely alone.  During that summer of 1806 he made one or more trips to the little village of Ithaca, and either coming or going (or both) had stopped at the tavern kept on South Hill, some three miles from Ithaca, by Francis King, a veteran of the Revolution who had taken up land here on the Military Tract.  At this tavern he had seen and been seen by the tavern keeper's daughter.  A story handed down in the family relates that when this 18 year old girl, Agnes, first saw the young widower she announced to her family that he was the man she was going to marry.   At any rate, she and Seneca Howland were married 14 Dec. 1806, nine months after his first wife's death.  Thus he obtained a companion in his loneliness and we acquired a grandmother.

Agnes King was a young woman of great energy and, I suspect from the reminiscences of my uncles and aunts, of a harsh and rather dictatorial character.  From the time of this marriage a new energy and thrift were give to Seneca's fortunes.  His new wife made him give up 200 acres of his land and devote himself to the improvement of the remaining 200.  His property in Duchess County had been sold the winter before by his father-in-law, Hendrick Hagermann, for 550 pounds, equivalent to $1,375.00; but a large part of the money went for the payment of old debts in that place, leaving but $500.00 to pay on his land in South Danby.  During the following winter (1806-7) Seneca visited his friends in Fishkill, the first of several visits made to his old home.

From the time of his second marriage until his death there were few events that varied the steady routine of work.  His son, Francis King Howland was born in September 1807 and from then until 1820 his family increased with great regularity and precision - eight children being born during the first twelve years of his second marriage and three other children thereafter.

In 1810 Seneca was elected Justice of the Peace, and ever afterwards was looked upon by his neighbors as a man who had profound knowledge of the law.  In fact, he was regularly re-elected to the office until his death.  In 1812 he was appointed Ensign of the 95th Regiment of the New York militia.  Five years later he was promoted to Captain.  Later, on the death of the Colonel, he was offered the Colonelcy of the regiment, but Agness would not allow him to accept the command, evidently thinking he had enough to do at home.

In 1827 he was confronted by a serious lawsuit.  Gen. Van Wyck gradually formed a dislike of his agent in Danby.  The two had maintained close business relations for twenty years, but their characters were wholly unlike.  Seneca was kind-hearted, rather easy-going man, not very prompt in doing business.  He had a habit of putting off disagreeable things, a habit not infrequently found in kind-hearted men.  On the other hand, Van Wyck was keen and grasping and insisted on the new settlers living up to the letter of their agreements.  If their payments fell the least in arrears, he kept writing to his agent to have them ejected at once from their holdings, but the latter was unwilling to proceed to such hard measures against his neighbors.  Old Mr. Bingham used to say, "Old Van Wyck would keep writing out 'Fire! Fire!' and Squire Howland would keep writing back 'Water! Water!'"

Thus, partly because of this, as well as because Seneca had not made any further payments on his own land since coming out to Danby, Gen. Van Wyck in 1824 revoked Seneca's power-of-attorney and appointed another man as agent.  He also charged Seneca with poor management and dishonesty; but it was not until 1827 that he brought suit against him the the State Supreme Court for $800.00, a sum he claimed owing him for lands sold by Howland during the latter's agency.  Grandfather brought forward a counterclaim against Van Wyck for $1,000.00 for improvements made on the latter's land, for taxes paid and surveys made thereon and for his own commissions of 4% on the lands sold.  The counter claims were finally left to three referees, who decided that "John B. Van Wyck was indebted to Seneca Howland the sum of $158.36", thus vindicating the latter from any charge of dishonesty.  But the pressure of the law suit together with Van Wyck's demand for final payment for his farm, forced Seneca in July, 1827 to borrow $600.00 for which he gave a mortgage on his land.  Four years later, at the time of his death, one-half of this mortgage had been paid off; but it was not until several years later that the remainder of the debt was discharged.

In 1829 Seneca was seized with a lameness in the knee which soon developed into what was then called the "white swelling" (later known as tuberculosis of the bone).  This was treated by Dr. Beers and Dr. Curtis, but their treatments were unavailing, and a "capping" of the swelling, is was said, scattered the disease into all parts of the body.  He died 26 July 1831, and such an impression had his life and abilities made on his neighbors that many years later a very old man told Arthur Charles Howland, Seneca's grandson, that "Old Squire Howland was smarter than any of his descendants."

Notes for SENECA H KING:

Obit of Seneca King.

It's at the Flat River Library in Greenville, MI, Scrapbook No. 37, pg 30 (the source paper for the obit is not mentioned)

Seneca H. King was born in Danby, N.Y., July 2, 1812 and died at Greenville, Mich., January 14, 1893, aged 80 years, 6 months and 14 days.

He came to Michigan, then a territory, in 1834, and settled four miles north of Marshall.  For a number of years he worked at his trade, a millwright, in different parts of the state, and in April, 1846, he came to Ionia county and located 320 acres of land on section 20, town of Orleans.  This he rapidly improved and developed into one of the finest farms in the county.

Some sixteen years ago he sold his farm and, although retaining his home in Orleans, he spent several years in the west, much of the time in the interest of the Seventh Day Adventist society, of which he was an exemplary member.

In 1883 he settled with his wife in Greenville where, surrounded by the comforts of a beautiful home he spent the remainder of his life in peace and quiet.

Mr. King was a man of untiring industry and strong convictions and, when his plans were formed, no ordinary obstacles stood in the way of his accomplishing them.

He leaves a wife and two sons; and, in his death they lose a kind husband and father, the church a zealous member, his neighbors a true friend, and the community an upright citizen.

Notes for CHARLES HOWLAND:

Charles Howland was born in 1818 and was on of six children.  Charles was Justice of the Peace in South Danby and people came to him to settle their complaints and grievances against their neighbors, arguments over property lines, etc.  Aunt Mary told Emily Hinton Howland that she and Arthur Charles Howland, as young children, would be sent out of the room at these times.  However, they would go up stairs and peek through a hole in the bedroom floor down into the room below.  They must have learned a lot about life and human nature.  Charles had  a farm in South Danby, Tompkins county, New York.  He and his wife are buried in the cemetery near by.

Charles Howland was a man of slight build and he had probably strained himself with the hard work on the farm at the time he died in 1900.

Maria Alida Bassett married Charles Howland on 27 Nov. 1850 in Seymour, Conn.  She was a plain woman in appearance, though not in character.  She was known for her quiet efficiency and skill and for never losing her head in an emergency.  She was often summoned from quite a distance to attend women in child-birth; and Charles Howland recalled anxious men waking them in the middle of the night and taking his mother with them to attend their wives.  His father would drive over the next day or the day after to bring her home.  Maria never lost any of these babies at birth, or did their mothers fail to come through the ordeal.

Notes for ELIZABETH REYNOLDS HOWLAND:

Great Aunt Elizabeth was a small and very quiet woman, but every now and then she would peak up and make a very funny and fitting comment on the conversation much amusing the family.   Like the rest of the family, she attended Wyoming Seminary.

Once, at a meeting of the Ladies Aid Society (of the Methodist Church), the pastor made some slighting remark about Elizabeth's younger sister Mary, indicating that she had not been quite honest in the handling of the Society's money, of which she was treasurer.  Immediately, Aunt Elizabeth rose to her sister's defense and told the minister off in no uncertain terms.   Later, when this was reported in the family, much to everyone's delight, Aunt Eliabeth said in a shocked voice, "Did I say that?!"

After the death of her brother Rufus' wife, Aunt Elizabeth kept house for Rufus and raised Susan, his daughter.  Elizbeth was known for her excellent butter which was never rancid (she kept the churn clean).  She was able to earn about $100 a year selling her butter.  After Rufus' death, Elizabeth and Susan remained in the Trumansburg house.  One night when she was an old lady she got up and may have grown dizzy as she fell down the stairs.  From then on she was bed ridden and appeared not to know anyone.  Susan took loving gentle care of her until her death in 1953.

54.            iii.    ARTHUR CHARLES HOWLAND, b. December 24, 1869, South Danby, Tompkins, New York; d. March 29, 1952, Swarthmore, Delaware, Pennsylvania.

                 iv.    MARY LOUISA HOWLAND129, b. March 04, 1872, South Danby, Tompkins, New York; d. December 17, 1958, Trumansburg, Tompkins, New York; m. GEORGE VAN KLEECK, December 28, 1903, Tompkins co., New York; b. October 27, 1871; d. December 05, 1943, Candor, Tompkins, New York.

Notes for MARY LOUISA HOWLAND:

As  young woman, Aunt Mary was very pretty with deep blue eyes and curly hair.   When her brother, Arthur, left home for college and thereafter permanently, she stayed home and looked after her parents until their deaths in 1900 and 1901.  Then the first year after Arthur's marriage to Emily Wycoff Berry,  Mary lived with them in New York City (1902-03).

In 1903 or 1904 Mary married George Van Kleck.  The Van Kleecks were among the early settlers of the South Danby area.  George had a farm in Dry Brook, a few miles from the Howland farm.  As a farmer's wife, Aunt Mary worked very hard, helping with the chores as well as caring for the house, cooking, etc.  She told me Uncle George was kind and gentle with his animals and helped them at birthing.  They had no children which was sad because Aunt Mary loved children.  They eventually sold the farm in Dry Brook and moved to a brick house on the outskirts of Candor.  This was a smaller farm but the work was the same.

Aunt Mary was a great story teller and delighted in telling the stories passed down in the family about the life in the rural community.  Farm houses were all a mile or more apart, but everyone knew their neighbors and the kind of people they were.  Social life centered in the church--that is all there was--no phones, no radios, no TV and a 12 mile drive with horse and wagon to Ithaca, the nearest city.  One of the neighbors had a run down farm with nothing cared for or looked after. Aunt Mary told me, that when one of the family died, she went over to help the family prepare for the funeral and for any visitors who might come in.  The house was so dirty she had to scrape the floors with a hoe to get them clean.  It was said of this place that the cockroaches were so big they came out of the house in the morning and sat on the fence and crowed.

After Uncle George's death, Aunt Mary sold the Candor place and went to live with her sister, Elizabeth, and niece, Susan, in Trumansburg.

Notes for GEORGE VAN KLEECK:

George Van Kleek had a sister named Jean van Kleek.  She worked in New York City and never married.  There was also a Neice by the name of Ruth Miller who lived in Ithaca, probably in the 1950's.  This is all my mother could remember of the Van Kleecks.

Carlos is found in the 1870 Census Wichata, Sedgewick Co, KS.  He is listed as age 27, occupation Carpenter and bp. of Virginia.   He appears to be staying at a hotel or boarding house owned by William Greiffautias (or something like that, last name is hard to read).   Amanda and the children are not with him, having remained in Michigan.  They were living with a farmer where Amanda had hired herself out to keep house Orleans Twp, Ionia Co.  This would later result in a law suite and eventually fraud charges on Amanda, but that occured after the death of Carlos King.

In 1871, Carlos B. King was appointed as the Deputy Sheriff in Newton, Kansas.  King soon fell victim to the violence of Newton and was shot to death in the line of duty on 23 September 1871.  King disarmed a Texas cowby by the name of Thomas Edwards in one of Hide Park's dance halls. Later the same evening, Edwards walked up to King and shot him in the chest with a Derringer.  This act was considered to be premeditated but Edwards escaped and was never tried.   In The Kansas Daily Commonwealth, the sotory of king's death is followed by the following statement:

"Thus perished Officer King, than whom there was no better gentleman nor truer friend, and no more respected man in Newton.  Thus does the red hand of the assassin continue to do its bloody work, for the taking of King's life is known to have been a premeditated act, -- plotted by others and accomplished by Edwards."

"The grave of King can still be seen in the Greenwood Cemetery.  Several things can be learned from looking at the gravestone. The first of these is the verification of the name and date of death that is given for King in many books about trail towns.  The second thing that can be learned is that King was a Civil War veteran.  The most important discovery is that King was a member of a Masonic lodge.  On the top of the marker is the symbol used to signify membership in the Masonic lodge.  The lodge in Newton was not formed until 1873.  This means that King was a member someplace else (Marshal, Michigan).   Richard Bartlett points out that in many frontier communities the Masons were the up and coming leaders of the community. King could have contributed to law and order to Newton if it had not been for his untimely death."

Notes for AMANDA ARNOLD:

Amanda King and girls living with her parents in the 1870 census.  It's very hard to read.  Her father is Chauncy Arnold living in Ionia, Ionia Co., MI.  pg 482R  Name of her parents was in the civil war papers.

Amanda would have been about age 23 at the time of her husband's death.

The early years of Amanda Arnold remain undiscovered.  She was 16 when she married Capt. Carlos King on 23 January 1864.   Capt. King must have cut quite a figure in the community.  He was the returning war hero who had been wounded in the Battle of the Wilderness in 1864.

When Carlos was killed in Newton, Kansas in 1871, Amanda and the children were still living in xxx, Michigan.  Amanda was about 23, Nina was 6, and Edith was 3.  She was boarding with _____ Palmer, a successful farmer in the area in exchange for housekeeping.

It was sometime later that Amanda became involved in several plots of rascalry that ended up in court.  The first case involved a suite filed by Amanda by her legal counsel against her landlord at some point after she had moved out.  She alleged that he (____ ______) had proposed marriage, but had not done so and had married someone else.  She sued for the sum of $10,000.  This, apparently, was a long shot.  The attorney with whom she was living is likely to have advised her to withdraw the breach of contract suite and file for a widow’s pension instead to secure a steady income.

The breach of contract suite was withdrawn, and Amanda and her attorney took a new tack to secure an income for her.  She filed a petition under the name Mrs. Amanda xxxx, with the US Government that her former husband, Carlos King, had died as a result of disease contracted during his war service, and not from being shot in the chest by Edwards. Conspiring with others, a number of false affidavits were prepared attesting to his war service, subsequent illness, and that the cause of death was the result of service related dysentery rather than the gun shot wound in the line of duty.  She filed for both a widow’s pension and support for her two minor children.

In the course of the review of the petition for pension, it was discovered that she had filed for breach of contract under the name that she had filed for the pension.  The resulting investigation revealed the following facts:

·       Marriage Certificate showing marriage of Amada King to Joel Palmer is a forgery in the hand of her attorney

·       Medical certification of death of Carlos King the result of dysentery rather than gun shot wound a forgery

·       Affidavits as to the questionable character of Amanda

·       Affidavit from Joel Palmer stating that he had not married, nor had he ever intended to marry Amanda, but that she was a tenant.

She is living with her parents in Ionia in 1900.

In 1909, one Mrs. Amanda E. Chapman petitioned the government in an attempt to collect a widow’s pension, but she was turned down.  Amanda was living in Escanaba, Michigan under the name Mrs. A. E. Chapman on March 16, 1909.

Notes for ELEANOR VAN ETTEN:

At sometime after marriage Eleanor moved to Minnesota. Pg. 170, Van Ettens in   America has a memo of newspaper clipping stating she was residing Minnesota   Masonic Home at Bloomington, near Minneapolis.

Eleanor also was a signer on the first petition sent to Washington requesting Women's suffrage.

Mrs. Eleanor Howland, sister of the Bellingham resident, is the only living charter member of this organization. The first meeting of the Order of the Eastern Star was held in Corning, New York in 1857. Mrs. Howland is now 97 years of age and resides at the Minnesota Masonic Homme at Bloomington, near Minneapolis.

Mrs. Howland has been a visitor to Bellingham on several occasions. Besides the honor of the charter member of the fraternal order she prides herself with signing the first petition sent to Washington requesting women's

suffrage more than three-quarters of a century ago."

Notes for LEVI M. HOWLAND:

Levi was a harness-maker, and moved to Missouri before the civil war.  He was reputed to be "a rampant copperhead during the war."  Franklyn Howland reports that he had six children in his book on the Howland but does not name them.  I have found several names in a Casterline genealogy, but no source is cited and I do not know how accurate the information is.

In 1880, Levi and his wife were living in Columbia, Boone, Missouri.  The initials for the first two children appear to validate the names in the Casterline genealogy.  Additional names are found in the 1880 census. In the 1880 census Levi is listed as L.M. Howland. Levi is identified as a harness maker.

Levi M. Howland is found in the 1910 census, age 73.  He is living in the 6th Ward Kansas, Jackson County, Missouri.  He may be found in series T624, Roll 786, Part 1, Page 174-A.

Notes for RUFUS BASSETT HOWLAND:

Rufus Bassett Howland was born 14 Sep 1851.  He was an intelligent man of kindly disposition and quiet humor.  He was loved dearly by his younger brother, Arthur C. Howland.  Rufus was 20 years older that Arthur and was almost a father to him.  The only time his daughter ever knew of her own father to cry was when Uncle Rufus died in 1923 of cancer.  Earlier Rufus had come to be with the family in Philadelphia in order to have the best medical advice at the university of Pennsylvania.  The family must have been told there was nothing that could be done and he returned to Trumansburg.

Rufus married Eleanor Dale (born 3 Dec. 1855) on 27 Jun, 1878.  There were three children, Susan, born 15 Jan 1886; Charles born 10 May 1888; and Eleanor, born 23 Nov. 1889.  Charles lived only two months, and Eleanor lived five years.  Rufus' wife died 2 Aug. 1892, probably of diphtheria, and he never remarried.  His sister Elizabeth came to live with him and Susan.

Rufus taught mathematics and was dean of boys at Wyoming Seminary in Kingston, Pa. until his retirement in 1917.  Summers were spent at the family homestead in south Danby.  In 1917 Rufus bought the house in Trumansburg and moved there.  Here his brother, Arthur, and family would often join him for summer vacations.  On the five acres, in addition to the large white clapboard house, there was a big red barn, a chicken house, and of course a well near the back door.  The eight members of the family would sit around the dining room table, Uncle Rufus, a deeply religious man, always said a blessing before dinner.  There would be much conversation and a lot of joking.  Uncle Rufus had grown very deaf. Susan, his daughter, always sat on his right and in a quiet voice would repeat whatever he had missed in the conversation.  He was always able to hear her.  Uncle Rufus was kind and gentle with us children and he and my father and brothers would go off on what appeared to be to be very adventurous expeditions.  Dad sometimes called him "reckless Ruffie."

In 1868 Rufus entered Cornell, graduating in Civil Engineering in 1872, the first full four-year class to graduate.  His class gave the University an avenue of elm trees which I can remember and hope have not succumbed to the elm blight.  Upon graduation, he taught for a year in School District #1 and in the fall of 1873 started teaching at Wyoming Seminary.

Children of RUFUS HOWLAND and ELEANOR DALE are:

                   i.    SUSAN DALE5 HOWLAND, b. January 15, 1886, Daleville, Lackawana Co., Pennsylvania; d. January 1961, Trumansburg, Tompkins, New York.

Notes for SUSAN DALE HOWLAND:

Cousin Sue was a quiet gracious lady.  She had the rare quality of listening sympathetically yet never interfered to tell you what you should have done or try to run your life.  As a young woman she was very shy which may be why she never married -- a pity, as she would have made a wonderful mother.  She attended Wyoming Seminary, where she lived with her father, Rufus.

Susan attended Wyoming Seminary Preparatory School in Kinston, Pennsylvania where her father was an instructor.  After she graduated she applied to Wellesley Univeristy.

She graduated from Wellesley and then attended Cornell where she must have studied poultry raising in the School of Agriculture.  In Trumansburg she raised white leghorns in the latest scientific method.  I can remember the eggs being hatched in incubators, the very clean chicken houses, how Cousin Sue would cull the sick chickens from the well, so that the disease wouldn't spread, and often be able to nurse them back to health.  In the big hen house, the hens were very tame and would let your gather the eggs from under them and not peck your hands.  If a hen insisted on sitting on her eggs to hatch them, the hen would be placed in a cage which hung above the floor from the ceiling.  sometimes there would be several hens in this cage.  They were usually cured quickly of remaining on the nest.  Cousin Sue's market was New York City where the young roosters were sent to become broilers and the eggs for sale at the better stores.

Since all the family liked books, there was much mutual enjoyment in books with Cousin Sue reading aloud.  Sue never received any blue ribbons or medals, but she quietly helped others all her life.  she was devoted to her father, Rufus, and nursed him during his final illness.  She cared for her Aunt Elizabeth after she became helpless and eventually for her Aunt Mary.

After Clarence Edward (Ted) Darling's serious heart attack, when he could no longer work, she took us all in and we lived with her nine months.  It couldn't have been easy for her and Aunt Mary to have a family of four arrive--one sick man, and two children.

Trumansburg had no library and Susan started one and kept it going.  One of her friends once told me she had a real cultural influence on the town.  Aunt Ina Geung, a second cousin of Arthur C. Howland, and a frequent visitor at Trumansburg called Cousin Sue, "the Rock of Gibraltar," for her steadfastness and reliability.  In 1959 Cousin Sue came to visit Emily H. Darling in Swarthmore and I thought I would see that she had a good time and we would do many nice things  together.  Two days after her arrival she was in the hospital, diagnosed with cancer and had a kidney removed.  Within two years she was dead.

After Susan's death she was cremated.  Her ashs were taken to Emily's house in Swarthmore as scattered there.  This was told to her son many years later to her son.

Notes for ARTHUR CHARLES HOWLAND:

Arthur Charles Howland was the son of Charles Howland and Maria Alida Bassett.  He was born in a white clapboard farm house in South Danby, New York on Dec 24, 1869, assisted by a neighbor as there was never a doctor on those occasions.  He was one of six children, two of whom died at birth.  His brother Rufus was almost 20 years older and there were two sisters, Elizabeth and Mary.  They were a close, loving family and remained so all their lives, helping each other as best they could in times of need.

Life must have been hard on the farm.  The land was poor and there was little cash.  Dad used to say that because of its remoteness, they lived like and used the equipment of an earlier generation.

Arthur delighted in telling stories about his childhood and the characters who lived on neighboring farms.   Some of these stories are recorded in his Family Recollections which he wrote when he was 80 years old.  One not there was of the terrible tempered Francis Van de Bogart. He had lost his temper and was doing something outrageous and foolish when his wife grabbed the butcher knife and chased him under the bed. She demanded he come out and he answered, "I have too much grit to come out." Dad used to tell about an uncle by marriage, Clark Lounsbury, who used to visit them.  Lounsbury had nine children, seven of whom died in infancy. He never really supported his family.  He was a fanatic abolitionist and later temperance agitator.  Dad would recall how excited Uncle Clark would get on the subject of temperance.  He would froth at the mouth and pound on the table about the evils of drink.

The ministers who served the little Methodist Church in South Danby were often ardent but ignorant men.  Even as a young boy, Dad could be amused at the preacher, talking of the sins of the wicked as described in the Bible, declaring in a loud voice, "And Egypt that great city, whar is she?"  Since Arthur was already reading everything he could get his hands on, no wonder his religious skepticism began to grow.  He notes in his recollections the beginning of skepticism at age six.  Apparently he had a pair of new trousers -- probably the first new ones he had ever had. He wore them for the first time going to church. When he knelt for the prayers, he prayed that the knees would not get dirty.  But when he got up he found that his prayer had not been answered.

Arthur and his sister, Mary, attended a little one room school.  When he was 13, there was a very inadequate teacher.  She had been told by the man who hired her not to hesitate to whip the children.  She did a lot of that, but was not well enough educated to teach them anything.  After a few weeks Arthur and Mary grew disgusted.  One day Arthur put a small stone under the window so it would not lock.  After supper he returned to the school house, got in through the window, removed his and Mary's books and took them home telling his parents they would not go back to school unless they insisted.  They must have understood the situation for Mary did not go back until the following term when there was another teacher. Arthur  went to the nearest high school which was in Ithaca (where he lived with Emma Howland King on Buffalo St. in Ithaca) and from there to Wyoming Seminary where his brother Rufus was dean of boys.

Arthur  was not cut out to be a farmer.  When he he helped with the work on the farm, he carried a Latin text book in his pocket and studied paradigms when the horses were resting.  This was at age 12.  He walked three miles twice a week to the home of a neighbor to recite Latin lessons.  When he was nine, his father was having a discussion with a friend on politics and some point in American history came up about with both men were uncertain.  He astonished them by innocently remarking they were both wrong and given them the correct facts.  He was already very fond of reading history.

Arthur would sometimes walk over to Mr. Simms' farm to visit with him. Mr. Simms had escaped slavery and come north from Virginia in 1859.  At age 15, Arthur took notes on Simms' story and the write up was posted on the internet for Tompkins county Rootsweb project.

When Arthur attended Wyoming Seminary,  his job was to ring the bell which awoke the students in the morning, called them to classes, etc. The other boys would sometimes turn the bill upside down and fill it with water.  Arthur soon learned to be cautious.  After graduation from the Seminary, he taught school a year and then entered Cornell, graduating in the class of 1893.  It was at Cornell that he met Emily Wycoff Berry whom he married 3 September 1902.  Much of their courtship was by letter as he graduated two years before she did.  During the academic year 1894-95, he had a fellowship to study at Gottingen and Leipzig; while later Emily W. Berry taught in Corning while Arthur was in New York City.  Arthur lived with a German family and liked the Germans very much, finding them friendly and good company.  The hate against the Germans in this country by World War I upset him, and Hitler and World War II must have shaken him still more.

While working on the research for his Ph.D. thesis, he was hired to index Andrew D. White's Warfare of Science with Dogmatic Theology.  White had been president of Cornell.  He was growing feeble and his site took over the management of his affairs.  Mrs. White paid Arthur  $.15 or $.20 per hour, but began to make difficulty about payments arguing that they were too much, and that she was over paying him.  Arthur's comment in his recollections was that she got a mighty good bargain.  The index was an excellent piece of work and it was the kind of work that took considerable expert knowledge and required much exactness and accuracy. He considered Mrs. White a cantankerous old woman.  One or two of her sisters had the same reputation in Swarthmore, were the family lived, her father having been president of Swarthmore College.  After that time Arthur always thought of Quakers as a tight fisted bunch.

Professors were poorly paid. In 1911, Arthur was made a full professor, he was earning only $2,400 a year, not much even in those days with which to support a family of five.  He added a little to his income teaching in summer school every year, and also with what his wife called "pot boilers" - reading college entrance exams and giving courses at the Villa Maria Convent in West Chester.  The nuns thought very highly of him.  One said, "Professor Howland knows so much.  It is too bad de doesn't know just a little more and become Catholic."

After receiving his Ph. D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1897, Arthur Howland served as an instructor of European History at the University of Illinois for a year and then taught at Teachers College, Columbia University for five years.  In 1904 he was appointed Assistant Professor of Medieval History at the University of Pennsylvania and became a full professor in 1911.

 In 1934 he was appointed to the Henry Charles Lea professorship which post he held until his retirement in 1940.  It was that year that the University awarded him the honorary degree of Litt. D.  His daughter Emily well remembers the occasion.  President Roosevelt the President of the United States appeared upon the stage and everyone in the huge hall rose in his honor.  In those days the President did not appear nightly on a television screen and it was a rare privilege to see him.

When Arthur's successor was called to active military duty in World War II, he resumed teaching as Lecturer in Medieval History 1942-43.  He was also curator of the Henry Charles Lea Library.  Henry Charles Lea was a distinguished historian whose specialty was witchcraft which was also on of Arthur's fields, as he had worked with Lea.  Mr. Lea's Library with its collection of 15,000 books had been moved in its entirety from his home to the University of Pennsylvania.  It is a beautiful room of black walnut panelling with a gallery running around it.

Arthur had a wonder sense of humor, was witty and loved to tell a good story.  He was respected by his colleagues and the library staff and admired and loved by his students.  He was often approached by a former student and greeted warmly.

Arthur held an honorary position as Advisor to the Library Committee of the University Club of Philadelphia of which he was a member for many years.  In 1952 the Committee passed the following Resolution:

"Unaffected simplicity of demeanor, with a sense of quizzical humor ever ready to mellow the established authority of his scholarship, gave a special tang to the personality of Arthur C. Howland, whose recent death deprives the Library Committee of a much valued member.  In hereby registering an estimate of its loss, the Committee especially notes that Dr. Howland wore his academic honors 'with a difference.'  He taught history at Penn and had had charge there of the remarkable Henry C. Lea Library.  But significant as these achievements were, they do not imply a finished portrait.  They do not indicate the measure of his charm.  A historian can be stuffy.  Dr. Howland certainly can be absolved on that score.

You could scarcely have gauged the scope of his accomplishments by his delightful informal commentary on people and books and cabbages and kings.  As a friend (who happens also to be a savant) he will be much missed."

Emily Hinton Howland said of her parents, they were fine parents to their three children, Charles Berry, Arthur Lloyd and Emily Hinton.  Because of being a teacher, Dad was able to spend more time with his children than many fathers.  He answered all questions frankly and honestly and without seeming to lecture and taught us honesty, consideration for others - that is, good morals.  one of the highlights of the day was when he read to us in the evenings.  My brothers loved Treasure Island and similar stories. I remember one summer Dad prepared a treasure hunt for the boys with various clues to follow which finally led to the digging up of the treasure.  I don't remember what the treasure was.  The pursuit of the clues was the fun.  Dad taught us to recognize the various kinds of birds and their songs.  He didn't like to get up early, but I remember one morning in Trumansburg he got up at 5 A.M. to take Budge (Arthur Lloyd) and me (Emily) to Taughannock park to hear and spot the birds.  How the country has changed since those days.  At Taughannock there were no paved roads and no park attendant to collect a parking fee.  A dirt road with grass growing down the middle ran close to the edge of the gorge.  No signs told you to keep away from the edge.  It was assumed you had a little common sense or had a parent with you who did.  There were fossils to be picked up in the gorge or along the shores of Cayuga lake.

As a young man Dad played the banjo and mandolin.   He loved music.  The family used to sing a lot and one of the happy memories of Emily's childhood is of sitting by the fireplace on Christmas Eve singing Christmas carols.

Notes for EMILY WYCKOFF BERRY:

Emily Wyckoff Berry was the oldest of five children.  A great deal of responsibility fell on her shoulders.  She won a scholarship to Cornell University, being the only one in her family to go to college.  (Very few women attended college in those days.)  It was a wonderful experience for her and she talked about her friends in the class of 1895 and kept in touch with them all her life.  She joined Delta Gamma sorority.    It was at Cornell the she met her future husband, Arthur C. Howland.

After he graduated in 1893, they corresponded regularly, and he kept many of her letters written from 1893 through 1900.  It is unfortunate that we do not have his to her.  From the letters, we can follow what she was doing and guess what he had written to her.  By 1894 they were no longer addressing each other as Mr. Howland and Miss Berry.

By 1897, Emily had a teaching job in Corning, New York where she taught Algebra, Geometry, Greek and Roman History and French.  She loved the teaching but thoroughly disliked the rough railroad town.  It must have been a lonesome time for both of them.

I remember the story being told of her early teaching experience.  One day her heard a terrible fight going one outside her classroom.  She went out with every intention of intervening if she could, but discovered that it was the school principal administering a little discipline to one of the older students in the stairwell.  She returned to her class and closed the door.

Notes for JAY WILSEY BENEDICT:

Jay W. Benedict and Ella Lorrinda Reed were married and lived on a farm in Willseyville, N.Y. with their three children Bernice (Bea), Archibald W. (Bud) and Helen Reed.  The farm house must have been passed down from Jay W.'s family.  Archibald W. Benedict and Maria Willsey, his parents, had lived there and before them, Maria's parents, William W. Willsey and Harriet Amanda Howland.  William W. Willsey was the son of The Honorable Jacob Willsey who I think may have established the farm and the town of Willseyville.  I and other family members have many beautiful artifacts from the household that can be traced back to Harriet Amanda Howland,  possibly further. 

   

As my Grandmother explained to me, her father Jay W. Benedict ran the local post office ( I have seen photos of him in a horse drawn delivery wagon).  He became ill with an upper respiratory infection and passed away sometime in the early 1920's.  In order to sustain the family with an income, my Great Grandmother, Ella opened a "Tea Room".  Willseyville served as a rest stop between Ithaca and Owego, N.Y.  Ironic that Jacob Willsey was also known to have ran a stagecoach stop there as well in the 1800's.  Ella ran the Tea Room until she became ill in 1925 and passed away.  Grandma told me her Mother had been caring for several ill family members and then went out of town to care for a relative who had been burned while cooking.  Ella became exhausted and ill herself.  Grandma shared her experience of waking up and seeing her Mother's bedding hung on the clothes line and knowing then that she had passed away.  Helen was 12 years old.  It has always amazed me that she survived that heartbreaking event at such a young age.

The children were split up and sent to live with different family members.  Grandma went to a relative's home in Johnson City N.Y..  It was a very sad time for her and she said she had not been treated well there.  Eventually she at some point in her teens, went back to Willseyville and was cared for by Aunt Hattie and Aunt Addie Howland and an Uncle Henry Benedict---who we are not sure who he was related to .  Jay W. was supposedly an only child.  It's not clear who was living at the farm house, however, a close family friend named Frank Manning may have been living there and or caring for the property. 

    

My Grandmother met and married my Grandfather Fredrick Decker in Cortland, N.Y.  When my mother was in her teens the farm was sold to Frank Manning and remained in his family through the the late 1970's.  I remember visiting him at the farm with my Grandmother when I was a young child.  Grandma frequently took the turn off to Willseyville and would take me on a tour of the town when we traveld between Ithaca and Vestal.

                 iii.    HELEN REED BENEDICT416, b. Abt. 1912416; m. FREDRICK DECKER416, Abt. 1930416.

Notes for HELEN REED BENEDICT:

Born Helen Reed Benedict, she was the youngest of three children, now all deceased.  Helen married my grandfather Fredrick Decker.  They were the only grandparents I knew.  My paternal grandparents passed away when I was an infant in the mid sixties.  Helen and Fred were wonderful and attentive grandparents who spent a lot of time with us as young children on into adulthood.  After they married sometime in the early 1930's, Fred and Helen lived in Cortland, N.Y. and had three children; Thomas, Patricia (my mom) and Richard (Dick died in 1997).  They eventually moved to Ithaca when my mom was school-aged.  My Mother and Uncle Tom have wonderful memories of Willseyville as children.  Many time would visit during the summers and stay with relatives- Aunt Hattie Howland and Aunt Addie Howland who lived in a house across the street from my Grandmother's farm.  My Mother especially has warm memories of Aunt Hattie allowing her to pick as many flowers as she wanted to decorate the house.  Both Aunts were elderly when my Mother was in her teens (she is 66 years old this month).  The Aunts had never married and had lived in Willseyville most of their lives.  One or possibly both, were school teachers. 

I need to go back to my Grandmother's childhood to explain the significance of Willseyville.  What I know from conversations with Grandma, my Mom and Uncle Tom may or may not be exactly accurate based on all of our memories.

80.  ESQ. CHARLES BERRY5 HOWLAND (ARTHUR CHARLES4, CHARLES3, AGNES2 KING, FRANCIS1)417,418,419 was born July 14, 1905 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA420,421, and died February 16, 1969 in Swarthmore, Delaware, Pennsylvania.  He married MADELENE TAWS ELLIS422 November 17, 1939, daughter of GEORGE ELLIS and FLORENCE MOORE.  She was born May 04, 1914422, and died 1995 in Newtown Square, Delaware, Pennsylvania.

Notes for ESQ. CHARLES BERRY HOWLAND:

Charles Berry Howland was born at home in Philadelphia, PA.  he was the oldest of three children, and the role of leader was always his for his generation for his entire life.

After his younger brother, Arthur (Budge) was born, there were always the inevitable squabbles between the boys.  Their mother would separate them and administer the disciple she thought appropriate, but the struggle to establish dominance continued until one day when their father prevented their mother's intervention.

Charlie graduated from Law School in 1929, the year of the great stock market crash.  Charlie secured one of the few legal jobs available at the time, and was employed by a law firm that represented banking interests in foreclosures and bankruptcies.

Because his father was a teacher, he was able to spend more time with his children than many fathers.  AH Howland used to read to the children in the evenings.  Charlie and Budge both loved Treasure Island and similar stories.  On summer ACH prepared a treasure hunt for the boys with various clues to follow which finally led to the digging up of the treasure.  Emily doesn't remember what the treasure was.  The pursuit of the clues was the fun.

Notes for MADELENE TAWS ELLIS:

Madelene was a very winsome woman, with dark eyes and dark hair.  She had a gift for artistic talent and was a fashion artist in her early professional career.  When the war came, (WW II) she got a job designing parachutes.   For a time she also painted family coats-of-arms.

Madelene was also the family genealogist.   Much of my family history is the result of her hard work and research. As her talents developed, she began to make a living researching family histories for those who would pay her hourly rate.  She specialized in the Philadelphia and Pennsylvania area.

Madelene also had a pension for gardening.  Her house in Swarthmore was always beautiful, and when not doing genealogy she could be found with a trowel and flowerpot in hand.

Notes for ARTHUR LLOYD HOWLAND:

Arthur Lloyd Howland (January 13, 1908 -- November 23, 1978) received his A.B. degree from Cornell in 1929, M.A. from Northwestern in 1931, and Ph.D. from Princeton in 1933. Art began his faculty career at Northwestern as an Instructor in 1933 and retired as Professor of Geological Sciences in 1976. His geological work included many years of studies of the structure, petrology and mineralogy of Precambrian rocks, and mineral deposits of chromite, copper-nickel sulfides, and platinum-group metals. He worked extensively in the field on the iron formations in Minnesota, the Stillwater Complex in Montana, in Newfoundland, Society Islands, and Brazil. During World War II he was associated with the U.S. Geological Survey in the Strategic Minerals Program and the Military Geology Unit, later working part-time in the Mineral Deposits Branch.

For twenty-four years, since 1945 to 1969, Arthur Howland served as the Chairman of Department of Geology, later renamed Department of Geological Sciences. Art's outstanding contribution as Chairman to the growth of the Department in the late 1940s was his bringing to Northwestern faculty such individuals as W.C. Krumbein, L.L. Sloss and R.M. Garrels, each of whom became a distinguished and inspiring pioneer of world renown in his field. During Art Howland's tenure as the Chairman, the Department moved from University Hall to Locy Hall, the building it occupies at present.

The Howland Fund was established on January 22, 1979, from a gift of Mrs. Barbara Z. Wilson, under the name of Arthur L. Howland Geological Sciences Field Study Fund. Over the years, gifts from the alumni contributed to a substantial growth of the Fund principal, the income from which is used to support field-related research work.

Notes for CLARENCE EDWARD DARLING:

I remember my father as being a very compassionate man, the type of person who would stop and help a strangers who found themselves in one jam or another.  He also had a soft heart for animals.  When I was in second or third grade, we were having mouse problems in our rented place near Lake Erie in Euclid.  My father devised a mouse trap from a cigar box, cutting a hole in the side and placing some oatmeal in the box. The box was placed on the kitchen counter where there had been mouse evidence the night before and waited.  It was not far into the evening after I had gone to bed that my father heard small sounds in the kitchen coming from the box.  He crept in and turned the box so that the hole was to the wall, trapping the mouse in the box until morning when he would show me. The next morning, we went to the box and with great ceremony opened the top.  The mouse had vanished and so had the oatmeal, but the mouse had left several small dark calling cards.  It quickly became evident that my father had rotated the box too far, and instead of pointing the exit hole to the wall, he had turned it so the mouse could leave in the other direction on the counter.

He loved hiking, and when he was not working he would take the family for hikes and picnics in parks, or fishing.   This love of the outdoors was passed along to both his sons.

Clarence Edward Darling was a chemical engineer and graduated at Rensselaer Polytechnic al Institute in Troy, New York in 1926.  Shortly after graduating he became interested in applying industrial engineering principles to sales problems and served a number of corporations: (1926-27) Public Service Electric & Gas Co, Newark, NJ.  The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (1927-29); American Standards Association (1929-30); J. Walter Thompson Co., (1930-31); Dobson Engineering Co. (1932);  E.I. Dupont de Nemours, Grascelli Chemicals Dept. (1934-43); McKinsey & Co. (1943-44); Daniel Starch & Staff, General Manager (1945); Barrett Division, Allied Chemical & Dye Corp. (1945-54);

He taught evening courses in Industrial marketing at College of the City of New York.  He was a member, American management Association, American Marketing Association, Chemical Market Research Association; RPI Alumni Advisory Council; President Westchester Alumni Association; F & AM and Royal Arch Mason.  Member of the Town Club of Scarsdale, served on several committees.  Director of Arthur Manor Association and a  member of Community Baptist Church.

They lived in Wilmington, Delaware when their first child was born.  The moved to Scarsdale, Westchester county, New York. About 1952 my father sustained a serious heart attack and the family moved to lived with Emily's relatives on a farm in Trumansburg, Tompkins county, NY.  After a year they moved to Euclid, Ohio, and later to Cleveland Heights, Ohio.

Notes for MINNIE E. CARD:

A VERY SAD DEATH.

MRS. MINNIE KING, OF SPENCER, DIES AT

  WILKESBARRE, PA., TUESDAY MORNING

  The people of Spencer were startled on Tuesday at the announcement of the death of Mrs. Minnie King, nee Card, of this place.  It will be remembered that only a few weeks ago we announced the wedding of Miss Card and Erwin King, which took place the 14th of last month, and on the following day the happy

couple left Spencer to enjoy their honeymoon with Mrs. King's brother, Chas. B. Card, at Wilkesbarre, Pa.  After a pleasant visit and about the time set to return to Spencer Mrs.King was taken with a heavy cold which she thought would soon pass off, and failed to call a doctor until about two weeks ago when she grew worse; a doctor was called who pronounced it typhoid pneumonia.  Mrs. King was conscious that her death was approaching and gave directions as to her funeral and other matters.  She would have been twenty-one years old in May.  Her body was brought to Spencer on Tuesday evening.  The funeral will take place today (Thursday) at Dryden, interment at the Willow Glenn Cemetery of the same place.

   Mrs. King is highly spoken of by all who knew her and all join in expressing their sympathy to the husband and in this his sad and sudden bereavement, and also to the mother, brother and the remaining sister. The father, it will be remembered, died only a few months ago.

   We are seldom called upon to relate so sad an affair as this.  The young bride who went away happy, is brought back in a few weeks a corpse, and to the happy couple to whom life seemed so bright, is so soon broken up and sadness takes the place of happiness to the remaining one.  Again we are called upon to remember that "in the midst of life we are in death."

Notes from the grand daughter of Erwin King and Edith Fulton King:

Erwin tragically lost his first wife, Minnie Card King, a few weeks after their marriage.  His subsequent marriage to Edith Fulton produced one child, Minnie Leora King, born February 7, 1906.  Edith died just one month after Minnie's birth, March 7, 1906.

[Minnie] Leora King was raised by Evalyn Westervelt Miller, a half sister of Edith Fulton King.  Evalyn and her husband, Samuel Jansen Miller, were childless.  Samuel Jansen Miller, of Dryden, New York is noted for the eagles he carved and the violins he made.  One of his eagles is displayed in the library in Dryden.  His tombstone in Willow Glen Cemetery, Dryden, New York says "Samuel Jansen Miller made violins from 1884".

 Erwin lived either alone or with his sister, Florence King Barden until his death in 1946.

Notes for JAMES H. KING:

James King died before 1910 as indicated by his widow marrying again in 1909.

The following obituary appeared in the Thursday, Sept. 1, 1904 edition of the "Spencer Needle"  It would appear that his actual death date--noted as "last Friday" in the obituary would have been August 26, 1904.

  Death of James King.

   The death of James King occurred at his home about three miles east of this village, last Friday after an

illness of only three days, with spinal meningitis.    Mr. King was the son of Mr. and Mrs. John King, of Barton and was 29 years and four months of age.  He was married and has two children, the youngest a babe of less than a year old.  A sadder and more heart rendering scene was never witnessed by those who attended him during the last few hours of his life; to see the life blood slowly ebbing away and she who was a young and cherished wife with her little ones left in the world with no means of support, made a feeling most pathetic to the hardest hearts.

   During his last twenty-four hours it was necessary to take him by the arms and pump the pure oxygen

into his lungs and press the foul air out, in order to sustain life a little longer.  He fully realized his con-

dition and knew that he could remain with his family and friends but a short time but bore it all without a murmur.  Just before the last he called for his wife and children to bid them farewell that they might meet in the land where parting is no more.

   For the past three years Mr. King has been the operator at the East Spencer creamery, and during that

time he has made many acquaintances and none speak but in the highest terms of his manly conduct.

   The funeral was held at the home on Sunday at which a large throng of relatives and friends  ssembled.

Rev. E. N. Sabin officiated.  Interment at Halsey Valley.
