Justiman Holden
Born: 23 Dec 1644 Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts
Mar.: 6 Dec 1693 Woburn, Middlesex, Massachusetts
Died 1697-1700 Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts
Father: Richard Holden
Mother: Sussanah

From "The Holden Genealogy" by Eben Putnam on page 47, "Justinian, born 1644 aged 32 or thereabouts, Dec., 1676), at Watertown or Cambridge; died 1697-1700; married Mary: (2) Susannah (Dutton) Durrant."

Justinian is included in a deed of land from his grandfather Stephen Fosdick via his parents Richard Holden and Martha (Fosdick) Holden. Page 56 of "The Holden Genealogy:" "Richard Holden and Martha, his wife, conveyed by deed dated 19 July, 1679, to their children, Justinian, John, and Stephen Holden, Martha wife of Thomas Boyden, Sarah wife of Gershom Swan, Elizabeth Holden, Samuel Holden, Mary wife of Thomas Williams, and Thomas Holden, forty acres of land in Woburn bequeathed by will of Stephen Fosdick. Middlesex Deed, 7:297."

From "The Holden Genealogy" by Eben Putnam page 62: "Justinian (Richard), born 1644, at Watertown or Cambridge; aged 'thirty two or thereabouts' 19 Dec., 1676, died intestate, probably in 1699 (living 14 Dec., 1696, but not living 17 March, 1700); married Mary, who died 15 May, 1691, at Woburn.

WITCHCRAFT 1692 Connection
Note: Susannah's first husband died in prison as a result fo the witchcraft hysteria of 1692.
She married Justinian second.

He (Justinian) married, second, 6 Dec 1693, Susannah (Dutton) Durrant, born 27 Feb., 1653-4, at Woburn, living in Dec., 1723, at Cambridge, daughter of Thomas and Susannah Dutton of Billerica, and widow of John Durrant of that place, whom she married 16 Nov. 1670, and who died in prison at Cambridge, 27 Oct., 1692, during the witchcraft excitement.

On page 63 related to Justinian Holden's second marriage: "By second marriage: Susannah, born 16 Oct., 1694, at Billerica. According to the Richardson Memorial, she married Timothy Richardson born 24 Jan. 1687-88, at Woburn, son of Stephen and Abigail (Wyman) Richardson of Malden, and removed to Attleboro about 1714, and had the following children;
1. Timothy Ricahrdson, born 18 Oct., 1715; married 22 March 1738, ALICE WYMAN.
2. Abiel Richardson, born 12 Oct., 1717.

On page 63: "Justinian Holden had a severn-acre proprietor's right in Groton. This was granted him prior to March, 1678-9, but as is the case with his father's original grant or purchase, there is no contemporary record when he obtained it. As early as Feb., 1672-3, the town ordered that the cattle of Richard and justinian Holden should be in the third herd. In Dec., 1673, he and his father were of the 'Town Committee,' evidently concerning lands, and in March, 1674-5, he was one to set part of the town bounds. It is possible that he had already married, at this time, but if so there is no trace of wife or children.

The Sergeant Holden of Woubrn mentioned in Stoake's letter of Feb., 1675-6 (see under John Holden), was undoubtedly Justinian, which points to his having entered the army prior to the attack upon Groton in March, 1676, when his father's family were driven away and sought refuge in Watertown.

He was one of Captain Daniel Henchman's command which gathered at Concord, May, 1676, and proceeded to Hadley, whre they arrived June 14, meeting the Indians in battle at Washakom Ponds en route, and joined the Connecticut forces in a brief campaign on the Connecticut River..." There is more information related to the Indian War.

"This service of Holden was done to the credit of Cambridge. During the period following the close of the Indian War, and his reappearance in Groton in 1680, it has been assumed that he married (first wife). It may be that his wife's father or grandfather was Samuel Freeman. The birth of their eldest child is recorded at Groton in May 1680 and in Nov. he purchased 20 acres there."

There is a lot more information about Justinian on page 63-65.

Father: Thomas Dutton
Mother: Susannah.

In book "The Holden Genealogy Ancestry and Descendants of Richard and Justinian Holden and of Randall Holden compiled by Eben Putnam for the family of Mr. L. E. Holden Vol. I Boston 1923 Pg 47. Justinian, born 1644 (aged 32 or thereabouts, Dec. 1676), at Watertown or Cambridge; died 1697-1700;married Mary: (2) Susannah (Dutton) Durrant. This is where the Durrant name comes in. Perhaps a first husband?

In Reading Vital Records the name is spelled Susanah Dutten.

On page 62 of "The Holden Genealogy" Justinian "married, second, 6 Dec 1693, Susannah (Dutton) Durrant, born 27 Feb., 1653-4, at Woburn, living in Dec., 1723, at Cambridge, daughter of Thomas and Susannah Dutton of Billerica, and widow of John Durrant of that place, whom she married 16 Nov. 1670, and who died in prison at Cambridge, 27 Oct., 1692, during the witchcraft excitement. By her first marriage Mrs. Holden had four children: John Durant, Thomas Durrant, Abigail Durrant and Mehitable Durrant. The last named married, 16 Dec. , 1708, Thomas Skinner, who lived in Malden and at one time and another rented Ten Hills Farm. In Sept., 1721, the "Widow Holden" living in a house of her "son in law Skinner" was warned by the Charlestown selectmen. She was previously warned in Nov., 1720, having come from Malden, and again Dec., 1723, then living with her son-in-law at Phipps' Farm (now East Cambridge). Billerica selectmen authorized the payment to the widow Marshall and Samuel Trull in Nov., 1702, for keeping the widow Holden."

Note: Warnings or warnings out were given to people there first year in a new town. The idea being that the new town did not want to incur any expenses of the new they warned them out of town. This was more to protect themselves (the town) form liability for affording the new person than it had to do with actually leading to the person leaving town. This record does show her many moves as the warning records the move.

WITCHCRAFT 1692 Connection Note that Susannah's first husband died in prison as a result of the witchcraft hysteria of 1692.

So this is very interesting. In my genealogy I descend from 3 Towne siblings: Mary (Towne) Estey who was hung as a witch, Edmund and Joseph. Peripherally, but not directly, I am related to Mary's sisters Rebecca (Towne) Nurse and Sarah (Towne) Cloyse. Now, here is what is interesting. I would not exist if two other people lived and did not die due to the hysteria. In this case Susannah Dutton remarried after her first husband died as a result of the witchcraft hysteria. I descend from Susannah and her second husband Justinian. Also, hung in the witchcraft hysteria was John Willard, Jr. He was the first husband of Margaret Wilkins. When he was hung, she remarried William Towne. And I descend from their daughter Mercy. So as disastrous as the hangings and deaths were, some good came of

Most likely her first marriage to John Durrant and the birth of her 4 children by him were in Billerica, Massachusetts.

Susannah, born 16 Oct. 1694 at Billerica was the daughter of Susannah and Justinian Holden. This is my direct line.

Married: 1640/41 Groton, Middlesex Co., Massachusetts
Died: 5 Dec. 1691 Watertown, Middlesex, Mssachusetts
Father: Stephen Fosdick
Mother: Ann Marre or Harre.

According to Eben Putnam, author of "The Holden Genealogy," on page 47: Richard Holden "married, perhaps as early as 1640, more likely in 1641, Martha Fosdick, born in 1620, in England, died 6 Dec., 1681, at Watertown, daughter of Stepehn Fosdick of Charlestown."
Note that the birth and marriage correspoond to the Ancestral file, but the date of death differs by 10 years. Information about the children begins on page 47. In the will of Stephen Fosdick presented on page 56 of "The Holden Genealogy:"To daughter Martha the wife of Richard Holding 10 pounds, also 40 acres land in Oburne (Woburn), bounded southeast by land of Faintnot Wines, elsewhere by the common--this land to continue to Richard Holding for the term of his life--and if Martha die before her husbnad, then the 10 pound and 40 acres to be equally divided between the children of Martha Holding...."

Also on pgae 56 there is information about a deed. "Richard Holden and Martha, his wife, conveyed by deed dated 19 July, 1679, to their children, Justinian, John, and Stephen Holden, Martha wife of Thomas Boyden, Sarah wife of Gershom Swan, Elizabeth Holden, Samuel Holden, Mary wife of Thomas Williams, and Thomas Holden, forty acres of land in Woburn bequeted by will of Stephen Fosdick. Middlesex Deed, 7:297."

Also on page 56 under children of Stephen Fosdick and his first wife:
Martha, age 38 in 1659; married Richard Holden.

447 Andrew was favored with a sound and vigorous training in his youth. He was well bestowed physically for the mammoth task of the early pioneer, and he entered into the work heartily. He and wife Sarah were admitted to the Church in 1728. He was a husbandman and woodworker, He was energetic and industrious. He was a man of strong physique, as tradition claims that he was of very large size and powerfully built. He was chosen fence viewer of the town at the meeting of freeholders on 3/9/1725. Soon after this he was honored with the rank of constable. It was in his time that the devout colonists were obliged to carry their guns to Church and into the fields when at work, and have them ever ready to fight off the prowling savage. Parker, Andrew (I15724)

On the 15th of March, 1697, a body of Indians made a descent on the westerly part of the town, and approached the house of Mr. Thomas Dustin. They came, as they were wont, arrayed with all the terrors of a savage war dress, with their muskets charged for the contest, their tomahawks drawn for the slaughter, and their scalping knives unsheathed and glittering in the sunbeams. Mr. Dustin at this time was engaged abroad in his daily labor. When the terrific shouts of the blood-hounds first fell on his ear, he seized his gun, mounted his horse, and hastened to his house, with the hope of escorting to a place of safety his family, which consisted of his wife, whom he tenderly and passionately loved, and who had been confined only seven days in childbed, her nurse, Mrs. Mary Neff, and eight young children. Immediately upon his arrival, he rushed into his house, and found it a scene of confusion - the women trembling for their safety, and the children weeping and calling on their mother for protection. He instantly ordered seven of his children to fly in an opposite direction from that in which the danger was approaching, and went himself to assist his wife. But he was too late - before she could arise from her bed, the enemy were upon them.

Mr. Dustin, seeing there was no hope of saving his wife from the clutches of the foe, flew from the house, mounted his horse, and rode full speed after his flying children. The agonized father supposed it impossible to
save them all, and he determined to snatch from death the child which shared the most of his affections. He soon came up with the infant brood; he heard their glad voices and saw the cheerful looks that overspread their countenances, for they felt themselves safe while under his protection. He looked for the child of his love - where was it? He scanned the little group from the oldest to the youngest, but he could not find it. They all fondly loved him - they called him by the endearing title of father, were flesh of his flesh, and stretched out their little arms toward him for protection. He gazed upon them, and faltered in his resolution, for there was none whom he could leave behind; and, indeed, what parent could, in such a situation, select the child which shared the most of his affections? He could not do it, and therefore resolved to defend them from the murderers, or die at their side.

A small party of the Indians pursued Mr. Dustin as he fled from the house, and soon overtook him and his flying children. They did not, however, approach very near, for they saw his determination, and feared the vengeance of a father, but skulked behind the trees and fences, and fired upon him and his little company. Mr. Dustin dismounted from his horse, placed himself in the rear of his children, and returned the fire of the enemy often and with good suceess. In this manner he retreated for more than a mile, alternately encouraging his terrified charge, and loading and fireing his gun, until he lodged them safely in a forsaken house. The Indians, finding that they could not conquer him, returned to their companions, expecting, no doubt, that they should there find victims, on which they might exercise their savage cruelty.

The party which entered the house when Mr. Dustin left it, found Mrs. Dustin in bed, and the nurse attempting to fly with the infant in her arms. They ordered Mrs. Dustin to rise instantly, while one of them took the infant from the arms of the nurse, carried it out, and dashed out its brains against an apple-tree. After plundering the house they set it on fire, and commenced their retreat, though Mrs. Dustin had but partly dressed herself, and was without a shoe on one of her feet. Mercy was a stranger to the breasts of the conquerors, and the unhappy women expected to receive no kindnesses from their hands. The weather at the time was exceedingly cold, the the March-wind blew keen and piercing, and the earth was alternately covered with snow and deep mud.

They travelled twelve miles the first day, and continued their retreat, day by day, following a circuitous route, until they reached the home of the Indian who claimed them as his property, which was on a small island, now called Dustin's Island, at the mouth of the Contoocook river, about six miles above the state-house in Concord, New Hampshire. Notwithstanding their intense suffering for the death of the child - their anxiety for those whom they had left behind, and who they expected had been cruelly butchered - their sufferings from cold and hunger, and from sleeping on the damp earth, with nothing but an inclement sky for a covering - and their terror for themselves, lest the arm that, as they supposed, had slaughtered those whom they dearly loved, would soon be made red with their blood, - notwithstanding all this, they performed the journey without yielding, and arrived at their destination in comparative health.

The family of their Indian master consisted of two men, three women, and seven children; besides an English boy, named Samuel Lennardson, who was taken prisoner about a year previous, at Worcester. Their master, some years before, had lived in the family of Rev. Mr. Rowlandson, of Lancaster, and he told Mrs. Dustin that "when he prayed the English way he thought it was good, but now he found the French way better."

These unfortunate women had been but a few days with the Indians, when they were informed that they must soon start for a distant Indian settlement, and that, upon their arrival, they would be obliged to conform to the regulations always required of prisoners, whenever they entered the village, which was to be stripped, scourged, and run the gauntlet in a state of nudity. The gauntlet consisted of two files of Indians, of both sexes and of all ages, containing all that could be mustered in the village; and the unhappy prisoners were obliged to run between them, when they were scoffed at and beaten by each one as they passed, and were sometimes marks at which the younger Indians threw their hatchets. This cruel custom was often practised by many of the tribes, and not unfrequently the poor prisoner sunk beneath it. Soon as the two women were informed of this, they determined to escape as speedily as possible. They could not bear to be exposed to the scoffs and unrestrained gaze of their savage conquerors - death would be preferable. Mrs. Dustin soon planned a mode of escape, appointed the 31st inst. for its accomplishment, and prevailed upon her nurse and the boy to join her. The Indians kept no watch, for the boy had lived with them so long they considered him as one of their children, and they did not expect that the women, unadvised and unaided, would attempt to escape, when success, at the best, appeared so desperate.

On the day previous to the 31st, Mrs. Dustin wished to learn on what part of the body the Indians struck their victims when they would despatch them suddenly, and how they took off a scalp. With this view she instructed the boy to make inquiries of one of the men. Accordingly, at a convenient opportunity, he asked one of them where he would strike a man if he would kill him instantly, and how to take off a scalp. The man laid his finger on his temple - "Strike 'em there," said he; and then instructed him how to scalp. The boy then communicated his information to Mrs. Dustin. The night at length arrived, and the whole family retired to rest, little suspecting that the most of them would never behold another sun. Long before the break of day, Mrs. Dustin arose, and, having ascertained that they were all in a deep sleep, awoke her nurse and the boy, when they armed themselves with tomahawks, and despatched ten of the twelve. A favorite boy they designedly left; and one of the squaws, whom they left for dead, jumped up, and ran with him into the woods. Mrs. Dustin killed her master, and Samuel Lennardson despatched the very Indian who told him where to strike, and how to take off a scalp. The deed was accomplished before the day bagan to break, and, after securing what little provision the wigwam of their dead master afforded, they scuttled all the boats but one, to prevent pursuit, and with that started for their homes. Mrs. Dustin took with her a gun that belonged to her master, and the tomahawk with which she committed the tragical deed. They had not proceeded far, however, when Mrs. Dustin perceived that they had neglected to take their scalps, and feared that her neighbors, if they ever arrived at their homes, would not credit their story, and would ask them for some token or proof. She told her fears to her companions, and they immediately returned to the silent wigwam, took off the scalps of the fallen, and put them into a bag. They then started on their journey anew, with the gun, tomahawk, and the bleeding.

A long and weary journey was before them, but they commenced it with cheerful hearts, each alternately rowing and steering their little bark. Though they had escaped from the clutches of their unfeeling master, still they were surrounded with dangers. They were thinly clad, the sky was still inclement, and they were liable to be re-captured by strolling bands of Indians, or by those who would undoubtedly pursue them so soon as the squaw and the boy had reported their departure, and the terrible vengeance they had taken; and were they again made prisoners, they well knew that a speedy death would follow. This array of danger, however, did not appall them for home was their beacon-light, and the thoughts of their firesides nerved their hearts. They continued to drop silently down the river, keeping a good lookout for strolling Indians; and in the night two of them only slept, while the third managed the boat. In this manner they pursued their journey, until they arrived safely, with their trophies, at their homes, totally unexpected by their mourning friends, who supposed that they had been butchered by their ruthless conquerors. It must truly have been an affecting meeting for Mrs. Dustin, who likewise supposed that all she loved, - all she held dear on earth - was laid in the silent tomb.

After recovering from the fatigue of the journey, they started for Boston, where they arrived on the 21st of April. They carried with them the gun and tomahawk, and their ten scalps - those witnesses that would not lie; and while there, the general court gave them fifty pounds, as a reward for their heroism. The report of their daring deed soon spread into every part of the country, and when Colonel Nicholson, governor of Maryland, heard of it, he sent them a very valuable present, and many presents were also made to them by their neighbors.

464 Arnold Douglas "Pudge" Wyman (August 20, 1895 - March 4, 1961) was an American football player. He was an All-American fullback for the University of Minnesota from 1915-1916 and halfback for the Rock Island Independents in the first season of the National Football League in 1920. He is credited with several NFL firsts, including the first touchdown, first kickoff return for a touchdown and first passing touchdown. Wyman was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1895 and graduated from Johnson High School in St. Paul, Minnesota. Wyman enrolled at the University of Minnesota where he played in the backfield of the legendary Golden Gophers football teams of 1915 and 1916 coached by Dr. Henry L. Williams. Wyman was 5 feet 11 inches (1.80 m) tall, weighed 172 pounds (78 kg),[1] and was one of best passers in the game. From 1915-1916, Wyman and Minnesota end Bert Baston were "one of the greatest forward-passing combinations in the history of the gridiron." In Baston's biography at the College Football Hall of Fame, the 1915 and 1916 Minnesota teams were described as follows:

"Bert Baston was the receiver on a heralded Gopher passing partnership, hauling down the throws of Arnold 'Pudge' Wyman. The two paced Minnesota through the air, while Bernie Bierman carried the ground attack as Minnesota compiled a record of 12 victories, a loss and a tie through the 1915 and 1916 campaigns."

During the 1916 football season, Wyman was laid up for several days with "lumbago." Despite the illness, Wyman was selected in 1916 as a first-team All-American fullback by Walter Eckersall of the Chicago Tribune and a second-team All-American by the United Press and University of Michigan Coach Fielding H. Yost. In the spring of 1917, with the United States' entry into World War I, Wyman was inducted into the U.S. Army at Fort Snelling, Minnesota. Wyman received his commission as a lieutenant and was sent overseas as an artillery officer in August 1917. He was assigned to the Fifth field artillery, where he remained throughout the war. He was promoted to the rank of captain shortly before the signing of the Armistice in November 1918.[10] After being discharged, Wyman returned to Minneapolis in May 1919. In the fall of 1919, Wyman served as an assistant coach of the Minnesota Golden Gophers football team under head coach Henry L. Williams. In the 1920 NFL season, Wyman played professional football for the Rock Island Independents in the first year of the American Professional Football Association, which changed its name in 1922 to the National Football League. On October 3, 1920, the first Sunday in league history, Wyman scored three touchdowns (two on blocked punts and another on an 86-yard kickoff return) in a 45-0 victory over the Muncie Flyers. Wyman is credited with the first touchdowns on a blocked punt and the first kickoff return for a touchdown in league history. Because records are not available specifying the time of scoring in other games, the first touchdown ever in the NFL was scored either by Wyman or by Lou Partlow in a game for the Dayton Triangles. On October 10, 1920, the second week of the first NFL season, Wyman is credited with throwing the first touchdown pass in league history-a 35-yard completion to Waddy Kuehl against Hammond. Wyman also had five interceptions in 1920 for Rock Island. Wyman played in six games for Rock Island in 1920 before retiring from football. Wyman died in 1961 at Minneapolis.

Seeking opportunities everywhere and alert in recognizing them, he went to various places in Minnesota, South Dakota, and North Dakota. Foreseeing the future up-building of North Dakota, he settled in Dickinson of that state.

There he organized the First National Bank, and at its first meeting was elected president. The bank's main business was in financing, buying, selling and lending money on ranches. Through his knowledge of human nature and land values, the business prospered from the outset. He had a personal interest in various ranch enterprises and from them reaped a substantial fortune. In 1915 he retired from active management of the bank, but remained its president, as he had been since its founding. about 1905 he had established a winter residence in Daytona, FL, and in recent years he spent a great deal of his time there.

481 As he owned land in Lyme, Conn., perhaps he lived there from 1662 to 1670, and several unrecorded children were born there. He was in Billerica about 1670 and about 1680 moved to Swansea, where a Baptist church flourished under protection of the Plymouth government. At Billerica the town ordered that his house should be a garrison house and he should have two garrison soldiers to defend his mill. He was representative from Swansea, 1689. Capt. of militia, 1690. About 1687, a number of families, including the Barretts, Bowens and others, with "Rev." Timothy3 Brooks as leader, moved to Southern New Jersey and settled at Bowentown, Barrett's Run and Shiloh. The first organized church in Cumberland Co., N. J., was the old Cohansey Baptist Church in 1683. In 1710, "Rev." Timothy3 Brooks and his company united with this church and he continued to be the pastor until his death in 1716. In 1702, he purchased 107 acres comprising the farm on the hill on which the brick house stands which later became the parsonage of the Cohansey Baptist Church until 1786. Timothy2 Brooks moved with this company of Baptists who came originally from Swansea, Wales, to New Jersey, and died in Salem, N. J., about 1712. Russell, Mary (I11225)

Thomas B. Wyman was born at Perry, Ohio, July 14, 1880. As a boy he attended the district schools of Perry Township. In 1895 his family moved to Painesville where he entered Painesville High School, graduating with the class of 1898. Following his graduation, he clerked for two years at The Wyman, a hotel conducted by his uncle at Connelsville, Pennsylvania. While in school at Perry and Painesville he had always been greatly interested in scientific study and in botany in particular and so, in the fall of 1900, he entered the Ohio State University at Columbus enrolling for the course in horticulture and forestry.

Forestry, at that time, was a comparatively new study in the United States and courses were very incomplete. Not being satisfied with the course, which was practically all horticulture, he did not return to Columbus the following year but entered the employ of the Pioneer Trust Company at Painesville, remaining with the bank two years.

In July, 1903 he continued his Forestry course at Biltmore Forest School, Biltmore, North Carolina, graduating from the latter institution with the Degrees of Bachelor of Forestry and Forest Engineer, December 31st, 1904.

In February of 1905 he entered the employ of the Cleveland Cliffs Iron Company at Negatunee, Michigan, as Forester and, at the end of the year was transferred to Munising, Michigan, in charge of the Munising District operations of this company with which operations he was identified until 1911.

In the spring of 1906 he was elected Supervisor of Grand Island Township, Alger County, in which capacity he served seven years the latter two of which he was chosen Chairman of the Alger County Board of Supervisors.

During his experience as Forester with the Cleveland Cliffs Iron Company he had come in contact with the great need for better forest protection and in the fall of 1910 took an active part in the organization of the Northern Forest Protective Association, an organization of private timber land owners, having for its purpose the patrolling of the timber lands of its membership against forest fires and the conduction of a needed publicity campaign to arouse the public mind against the enormous losses annually cause by fires. In March, 1911, he became Secretary-Forester of this Association. The Association continued active operations until 1918 when it secured such increased state appropriations for forest work as would permit of general patrol and lessen the cost to all timber land owners. To put the new patrol system into effect he resigned from the Association and took charge of the work in the Northern Peninsula for the State.

In 1909, finding in his own work a decided need of young men with woods experience, he organized Wyman?s School of the Woods, a practical school of forestry, which school he conducted until 1917 when war conditions made it inadvisable to continue. The school sent many men into private forest work the larger percentage of whom saw service with the Forest Regiment in France during the World War.

When Painesville adopted the City Manager Plan, effective January 1, 1920, he was invited to become the city?s first manager which position he has occupied since that date.

Mr. Wyman was married December 17, 1907 to Lillian Penglase of Negaunee, Michigan and his family consists of two boys, Max and Don, both attending the Painesville public schools.

509 Audrey Jean Wyman passed from this earth to continue on her journey of gathering knowledge and teaching on Thursday December 6, 2012. Waiting to welcome Audrey are three daughters; Ellen Biskey, Mary Vanderpoel and Patricia Wyman, Great Granddaughter Gretta Wyman, her parents Michael and Louise Keasling, her sister Agnes Joyner, brother Daniel Keasling, and ex-husband Richard Wyman. Audrey was born in Exeland, Wisconsin in April of 1924 as the youngest of three children. A few years later they moved to the family farm where her father and grandfather raised work horses. Audrey learned to drive a double team of horses before learning to drive a car. Audrey graduated with a Rural Teaching Certificate in 1944 after attending Eau Claire State Teachers College. It was there that Audrey met her future husband Richard D. Wyman. They married in December of 1945. After graduation Audrey taught in Eau Claire, Clark and Sawyer Counties from 1944 to 1951. She said she was hired to teach in the one room schoolhouses because she could start a fire with green wood. As the children came along, Audrey devoted her time and energy to being a fulltime mother and homemaker while moving to many different towns where Richard was employed as a teacher. In the early winter of 1961, the family moved to "Audrey's Farm" in Wrenshall, MN where for many years they produced pure maple syrup. A courageous woman with twelve children at home, Audrey returned to college full time at the College of St Scholastica, graduating with Honors in 1969 with a Bachelor of Science degree, and an Elementary Teaching Certificate. Audrey continued her lifelong learning process at the University of Minnesota Duluth, and received her Master of Education degree with an emphasis in Indian Culture in 1977. While attending UMD Audrey took a karate class which started a passion for the study of martial arts. Audrey attained the Karate Do rank of 4th Kyu in the Japan Karate Association. As a gifted teacher who had the ability to install a willingness to learn in her students, Audrey taught in the Duluth School District 709 from 1969 to 1981 with a few years at the Indian Alternative Learning Center and Duluth Open School. Audrey became the Indian Tutor for the Indian Education Program in Duluth from 1981 to 1986. After retiring from fulltime teaching Audrey returned to the classroom as a substitute teacher in Duluth MN and Wrenshall MN. Shortly before retiring the first time, Audrey became involved as a Living History Interpreter at various recreated Fur Posts and Historic Sites in Minnesota and Wisconsin and began another career of teaching about the interaction between the fur trade and the Indian way of life. She came to be known as "Noki" (Nokomis or grandmother) to many at the fur post and at living history rendezvous. Through this reenactment of the past she met Elfie Johanson and made a life together in Nevis, Mn. A quest for knowledge led Audrey to try many things and her interests were varied. Writing short stories, gardening, quilting and weaving were a few of her pastimes. As a member of the Duluth Canoe Club Audrey quit whitewater canoeing in her 60's after a particularly harrowing experience. She continued traveling cross country well into her eighties to attend family functions. Audrey was a member of the Third Order of St. Francis for almost sixty years, and found peace and comfort in her strong faith in God.

Audrey is survived by her children Mollie (Cleo) Ashworth of Duluth, MN, Allan Wyman of LaPointe, WI, Teresa Wyman (Dennis Center) of Washburn WI, Brigid (Mark) LaPlante of Hermantown MN, Barbara (Steve Sather) Wyman and Dan (Lori) Wyman of Cloquet MN, Henry (Linda) Wyman of Wrenshall MN, Jerry Wyman, of Nevis MN, John (Carol Korpi) Wyman of Kelsey MN, Sarah (Jerry) Loss, of Elk River MN and Susan (Gary) Zahradka of St Paul MN, Elwynn Johanson her partner of 18 years, and his children Cheryl (Roger) Roshan, Karen (Dennis)Kiewatt, Laurie (Robert) Malloy and Brian (Casey) Johanson. Audrey leaves a valuable legacy to her 55 grandchildren, 49 great grandchildren and one great-great grandson, as well as many family members and friends.

Audrey will be spending Eternity holding Baby Angels in heavens' nursery and teaching in the Angel Grade School.

The family extends a special Thank You to the staff at The Lighthouse of Cloquet for the loving environment and special Memory Care given to Audrey in her three years as a resident.

Josephine remembered going to Joe Vachon's house every summer and to "Orchard Beach" (OOB). John Hill lived at Hills Beach in Biddeford. When asked about Ferry Beach in Saco, she had never heard of it. Harry was born in Lawrence as well as the rest of the family. They never moved back to Saco. She believes they moved because of work at the factories but didn't really know for sure.

She was 4 years old when her grandfather died (Thomas Hill). She remembers because of all the confusion of the funeral and she ran away because she was frightened of it all! She recalls that he was a big man.

Eva Hill was 15 when she was married. Carrie was the baby and lived to 94. She "was really something", was really small.

Thomas and Margaret married siblings.

She remembers going to OOB to buy lettuce- there wasn't a year she didn't go to OOB.

She remembers "Uncle Jim" saying if we ate burnt toast we would get curly hair. Only Uncle Jim had curly hair. He was great with kids.

Mother lived in back of Uncle Vic......Carrie wouldn't tell anything, could have been a scandle there....children born by the truck drivers!!!

(When Josephine looked at the census info we had she saw Carrie and said"there were babies there!"

Jim's wife was always getting him out of the "hoose gou" - lots of drinking.

Deb: "Violetta may not have been Thomas Hill's daughter?
Josephine: "Well, that's what I thought! I remeber whisperings."

Josephine thought Mary Kilpatrick was 69 when she died.
Michael in CA would know where Jeanette lives - probably in NH?
Uncle Ed's daughter got everything in Aunt Carrie's house. Jeanette has a brother, Edward Hill, both still living. (Jeanette was married and divorced)

Aunt Carrie worked in a shoe factory.
Grampa died - he never went to Lawrence. Grandma never married again.
Carlton still living
Lucy was a school teacher
Josephine confirmed that she believed Mary was from Glasgow Scotland.
Josephine graduated from Bates - her father had always told her it was a waste because she'll just get married anyway and that's what she did!

Carrie lived with Carlton Prescott and Margaret - Margaret's still living.
Josephine's mother would get a huge bundle of clothes from Emily Vachon that my mother made over for me. We got some beautiful clothes from them.

FRED WYMAN. In the character and activities of a few men Davenport still carries on in its old traditions as one of the great capitals of the lumber industry of the Middle West. Mr. Wyman is closely linked with those traditions that at one time represented extensive interests in the lumber business.
Mr. Wyman's mother was Anna Phelps, sister of John B. Phelps, who with James E. Lindsay in 1862 formed the partnership long known as Lindsay & Phelps Company, with headquarters at Davenport. This firm built a saw mill in 1866, and thereafter for years figured with increasing importance in the lumber development of the Northwest. It is significant that in the publication issued some years ago, entitled History of 100 Prominent Lumber Men of America, two of the names that came in for special consideration were John B. Phelps and James E. Lindsay. The Lindsay & Phelps Company continued as an organization until 1930.
Mr. Wyman was born at Schroon, Essex County, New York, October 10, 1857, being a son of Daniel and Anna (Phelps) Wyman. He was educated at grammar and high schools at Crown Point and Westport, New York, and also took a course in a business college at Troy, New York. In 1878 he came west to Davenport and began in association and work with the Lindsay & Phelps Company, an association which was continued until the dissolution of the company in 1930.
He is also president of the Southern Lumber Company, with holdings in Arkansas, is president of the Warren and Ouachita Valley Railway Company, is secretary of the Cloquet Lumber Company, with holdings in Minnesota, secretary and treasurer of the Sound Timber Company, with holdings in the States of Washington and Oregon; is vice president of the Richardson Land & Timber Company at Davenport. For many years he was president of the Southland Lumber Company of Louisiana, whose holdings were disposed of a few years ago.
In 1887 Mr. Wyman married Miss Lillie Lindsay, daughter of James E. Lindsay. She died December 26, 1905. In 1917 Mr. Wyman married Mrs. Margaret Blair Lindsay. Mr. Wyman has one daughter, Mrs. Edith W. Wilson, of New York and two grandsons, Richard Wyman Wilson and John Oliver Wilson. Mr. Wyman is a member and trustee of the First Presbyterian Church at Davenport and a trustee of the Y.M.C.A., of both of which institutions he has been a large benefactor. he is also a member of the Outing Club, Davenport Country Club and Chamber of Commerce.

Gellerson, Benjamin Franklin (I55071)
542 Benjamin Brown, JP Family (F1223)
543 Benjamin enlisted in the Revolutionary army at the beginning of the war when he was only 17 years old, fought at Bunker Hill, and continued to serve to the close of hostilities. He was later elected a General in the New Hampshire Militia and was elected Governor of the State of New Hampshire in 1827 and 1829 (From A Merrill Memorial, p. 212).

Taken from The Life of Franklin Pierce, by Nathaniel Hawthorne:

"General Benjamin Pierce, the father of Franklin, was one of the earliest settlers in the town of Hillsborough, and contributed as much as any other man to the growth and prosperity of the county. He was born in 1757, at Chelmsford, now Lowell, in Massachusetts. Losing his parents early, he grew up under the care of an uncle, amid such circumstances of simple fare, hard labor, and scanty education as usually fell to the lot of a New England yeoman's family some eighty or a hundred years ago. On the 19th of April, 1775, being then less than eighteen years of age, the stripling was at the plough, when tidings reached him of the bloodshed at Lexington and Concord. He immediately loosened the ox chain, left the plough in the furrow, took his uncle's gun and equipments, and set forth towards the scene of action. From that day, for more than seven years, he never saw his native place. He enlisted in the army, was present at the battle of Bunker Hill, and after serving through the whole revolutionary war, and fighting his way upward from the lowest grade, returned, at last, a thorough soldier, and commander of a company. He was retained in the army as long as that body of veterans had a united existence; and, being finally disbanded, at West Point, in 1784, was left with no other reward, for nine years of toil and danger, than the nominal amount of his pay in the Continental currency--then so depreciated as to be almost worthless.

"In 1785, being employed as agent to explore a tract of wild land, be purchased a lot of fifty acres in what is now the town of Hillsborough. In the spring of the succeeding year, he built himself a log hut, and began the clearing and cultivation of his tract. Another year beheld him married to his first wife, Elizabeth Andrews, who died within a twelvemonth after their union, leaving a daughter, the present widow of General John McNeil. In 1789, he married Anna Kendrick, with whom he lived about half a century, and who bore him eight children, of whom Franklin was the sixth.

"Although the revolutionary soldier had thus betaken himself to the wilderness for a subsistence, his professional merits were not forgotten by those who had witnessed his military career. As early as 1786, he was appointed brigade major of the militia of Hillsborough county, then first organized and formed into a brigade. And it was a still stronger testimonial to his character as a soldier, that, nearly fifteen years afterwards, during the presidency of John Adams, he was offered a high command in the northern division of the army which was proposed to be levied in anticipation of a war with the French republic. Inflexibly democratic in his political faith, however, Major Pierce refused to be implicated in a policy which he could not approve. "No, gentlemen," said he to the delegates, who urged his acceptance of the commission, "poor as I am, and acceptable as would be the position under other circumstances, I would sooner go to yonder mountains, dig me a cave, and live on roast potatoes, than be instrumental in promoting the objects for which that army is to be raised!" This same fidelity to his principles marked every public, as well as private, action of his life.

"In his own neighborhood, among those who knew him best, he early gained an influence that was never lost nor diminished, but continued to spread wider during the whole of his long life. In 1789, he was elected to the state legislature, and retained that position for thirteen successive years, until chosen a member of the council. During the same period, he was active in his military duties, as a field officer, and finally general, of the militia of the county; and Miller, McNeil, and others, learned of him, in this capacity, the soldier-like discipline which was afterwards displayed on the battle fields of the northern frontier.

"The history, character, and circumstances of General Benjamin Pierce, though here but briefly touched upon, are essential parts of the biography of his son, both as indicating some of the native traits which the latter has inherited, and as showing the influences amid which he grew up. At Franklin Pierce's birth, and for many years subsequent, his father was the most active and public-spirited man within his sphere; a most decided democrat, and supporter of Jefferson and Madison; a practical farmer, moreover, not rich, but independent, exercising a liberal hospitality, and noted for the kindness and generosity of his character; a man of the people, but whose natural qualities inevitably made him a leader among them. From infancy upward, the boy had before his eyes, as the model on which he might instinctively form himself, one of the best specimens of sterling New England character, developed in a life of simple habits, yet of elevated action. Patriotism, such as it had been in revolutionary days, was taught him by his father, as early as his mother taught him religion.

"He became early imbued, too, with the military spirit which the old soldier had retained from his long service, and which was kept active by the constant alarms and warlike preparations of the first twelve years of the present century. If any man is bound, by birth and youthful training, to show himself a brave, faithful, and able citizen of his native country, it is the son of such a father."

550 BIOGRAPHY: Died with his brother-in-law Jason Winship, killed by the British troops on their return from Lexington and Concord. (19 Apr 1775)

They were in Cooper's Tavern, in Menotomy.

A Winchester newspaper April 17 1975, Vol. XCIV, NO. 34
From the events of this day have come many tales. The best known is the story of "The White Horseman." The first written account of this story appear in The Boston Pearl and Literary Gazette an "original" written by "a soldier of the Revolution," on Aug. 22, 1835. It was obviously blown-up version of what might have been authentic facts. It concerns an almost supernatural old man on a powerful white horse who harassed the British during their retreat from Concord. The Winchester men who are definitely known to have been at Lexington-Concord or at Bunker Hill are
... Paul Wyman.

Menotomy: Scene of day's bloodiest fighting (source unknown) "A member of one of the oldest families in the town, Jason Winship, 45, a cousin of Mrs. Jason Russell, was spreading the glad tidings of a special family event. Winship's first wife had died in child-bed, four more of his children had died at birth and now, at last, the family had its first son, and he was to be baptized this coming Sabbath. Jason had met with his Brother-in-law, Jabez Wyman of Woburn, to toast the coming event. Tavern keeper Benjamin Cooper had prepared a festive drink, flip, made with egg, sugar, and spices. Wyman, though he had a long ride home with the news of the christening, told Winship: "Let us finish the mug, they won't come yet." But the redcoats were hurrying, and they did come. The tavern keeper and his wife, who managed to escape to the cellar, told how a hundred bullets suddenly tore through the tavern and enraged troops rushed in. The Coopers said: "The two aged (sic) gentlemen were most barbarously and inhumanely murdered by them, being stabbed through in many places, their heads mangled, skulls broke, and their brains out on the floor and walls of the house." The following Sabbath the christening of the infant Jason Winship was held, and the same day in the same meeting house the bereaved families gathered for a memorial service to all the men who had died as the redcoats swept through Menotomy."

569 Birth estimated on Poll Tax records for a widow Wyman
In the Maine State Archives are tax records of Winslow. These could be construed to mean that a young John was the son of a widow Wyman The tax records for 1796 show Moses, James, Timothy and William Wyman For 1798 they show the same people and an additional Widow Wyman, with no male subject to poll tax in her household. The tax list for 1799 has the same list as 1798, except no William; Widow Wyman has a taxed male; there is a John Wyman, for whom the poll has been crossed out with the note, "underage and set to his mother". In 1801 Moses, Timothy, James, John and the Widow are there, she having a poll under 21. In 1805 the tax records show a poll for each of James, Moses, John and Timothy Wyman, and the widow has disappeared. From this record it would seem that the John, son of Widow Wyman in Winslow, would have been born between 1780 and 1784, to have been under 21 in 1801 but over 21 in 1805.

573 birth near Pittsburg Randles, Howard Van Treese (I40154)
574 Birth place is given as Kagawasn on Nellie's marriage entry of the Ontario Marriage Register , Parry Sound District. I can't find such a place on Manitoulin Island which is her birth place according to family tradition. There is however a place called Kagawong. Thus my assumption that the marriage register spelling is incorrect and her birth place is Kagawongon Manitoulin Island.
A search by the Ontario Office of the Registar General done 12 April 1976 for the years 1885- 86-87-88-89 paid for by Sharon Nelson did not find a registration of a birth for Helen Forshew. "This is to certify that we have searched the province of Ontario index and here is no record of a registration for the name indicated in the period indicated."
