Clare Sentinal - 9 Sept 1910
Herman Snear was born in Germany 3 July 1836 and came to this
country in 1857, settling in Erie, PA. In 1861 he was married to MissConey NITZEL who was also a native of Germany. Their married lifeextended over a period of 39 years, the wife dying in Oct 1900. In1867 they moved to Michigan, settling in Tuscola Co, where theyresided until 1883 when they came to Wise, Isabella Co, where theylived until the death summons came. To them were born ten children,six boys and four girls. Three of the boys, Charlie, Joseph and John, diedbefore the parents. There still survive three sons, George, William andFrank, who reside in Wise. All the daughters are still living: Mrs. Wm.LEOSH and Mrs. James HERSEY of Wise, Mrs. Len WOOD or Gilmore,and Mrs. Wm. JOHNSON of Farwell.
Mr. SNEAR was a member of the GAR, having volunteered for his
adopted country in 1861 and followed the flag for three years.
Since the death of his wife, he had resided with his son George. On
Sunday last he seemed in his usual health and had spent part of the dayvisiting at another son's. When he returned home he lay down uponthe bed and was there found dead, the end coming evidently without astruggle.
The funeral was held at the ME Church in Loomis, services being
conducted by Rev. PARSONS of Coleman, and interment in cemetery atLoomis. The very large attendance at the funeral attested the worth ofthe deceased and the high esteem in which he was held.Date: 23 Nov 2002

Children: Johann 16, Christian 5, Martin 2, Maria 14

1766-1767 Transport List #1
Conrad Herbel, Luth
Wife: Anna Elisabeth died enroute
Children: Johann Peter 17, Christian 6,

1767 Kukkus First Settler List #27
Konrad Herbel
Age 40, ref, weaver of stockings from Belchingen, Braunfels
Wife: Anna Maria 40
Children: Johann Peter 17, Maria Katharina 15
Step sons: Jakob 12, Philipp 9
Stepdaughter: Elisabeth 15

Two children apparently did not survive the transport to Kukkus. And 3 stepchildren were added. Perhaps his wife also died and he remarried another Anna.

Name Konrad Herbel, from Bechlingen, Braunfels appears in Solms-Braunfels Archives asking to be allowed to leave for Volga Russia in 1766.

Stumpp has Konrad Herbel from Bechlingen/Wetzlar, Hesse.
Herpel, Johann Konrad (I10366)
2 weeks old on 1767 census.

Description: Kukkus birth records include the following:
#31, 32. Twins Cath. Magd. [Catharina Magdalena] and Maria Charl. [Charlotta] Beker [Becker], born 13, baptized 20 November 1799.
Parents: Conrad Beker and Catharina Haase from the village Volskoye.
Godparents and witnesses: Joh. Horch, Magd. Beker, Thom. Heizenroeder, M. Charl. Fuchs.

HH 43 in 1798 - these are the parents
HH 42 contains Maria Charlotta Fuchs, a sponsor
HH 30 contains Thomas Hei..., another sponsor, married to Anna Margaretha Becker (my ancestors)
HH 31 has a Becker wife named Magdalena that I suspect is another sponsor

These sponsors might suggest that Maria Charlotta (Becker) Fuchs, Anna Margaretha (Becker) Hei..., and Wilhelm Becker were siblings of Johann Conrad Becker. We know from the 1811 Kukkus census HH43 that Konrad and Wilhelm were brothers. Most likely Anna Margaetha was the child on the 1767 1st settler list.

HH 24 in Stahl am Tarlyk has a Johannes Horch, but I don't see how he'd be connected. I suspect it must be some other Horch that perhaps had a Becker wife.
Becker, Anna Margareta (I3565)
Also, FindAGrave has a specific birth date on son James in Dutchess County 20 Aug 1793 and on son Cornelius in Junius 16 Oct 1795. I have no confirmation of either place or either date.
We do have a Quaker document which states brother Samuel was born in Esopus, Ulster County, NY in 1797.

In the 1800 Federal Census we find John Mills in New Paltz. The census has his age between 26 and 45, which fits with an age of approximate 30. The census show 4 males and zero females under the age of 10. We show 3 males and 0 females within that age range. (the number 4 in the males box is indistinct and could conceivably be a one. By comparing it with other 4’s on the page, I believe it to be a 4). There is 1 other Mills in Ulster County on the 1800 census, that is James Mills (incorrectly indexed on ancestry as James Miler) who is in Rochester. His age is over 45.

From the Marlborough Monthly Meeting: 24 Oct 1810 John Mills and wife Abigail of New Paltz, NY requested certificate of removal to the Adolphus Monthly meeting in Upper Canada.
From the Adolphus Monthly Meeting of women: 21 Mar 1811 The certificate from the Marlborough Meeting for Abigail Mills is accepted.
From the Adolphus Monthly Meeting of women:18 Jan 1816. Abigail Mills and her husband John requested a certificate of removal to the Junious (NY) Monthly meeting
From the Norwich (Hicksite) Meeting of women: 22 May 1820 Abigail Mills, wife of John Mills has her certificate of removal from the Junius (NY) Monthly Meeting accepted by the Norwich (Canada) Meeting.
From the Norwick Monthly Meeting of women: May 1830 Abigail Mill's name appears on a membership list. 
Minard, Abigail (I7649)

Conon was born about 927, son of Judicael Berengar, comte de Rennes. He was the count of Rennes from 958 and duke of Brittany from 990 to his death. He became ruler of Brittany after a period of civil and political unrest.

About 973 Conon married Ermengarde d'Anjou, daughter of Geoffrey I, comte d'Anjou, and Adelais de Vermandois. Of their five children, Geoffrey and Judith would have progeny.

Conon died in battle against his brother-in-law Foulques III 'Nerra', comte d'Anjou, at the second Battle of Conquereuil on 27 June 992, having been defeated at Conquereuil by his father-in-law Geoffrey I, comte d'Anjou, in 982. He is buried in Mont Saint Michel Abbey. 
Conon I 'le Tort' duc de Bretagne (I9021)

Herleve, also known as Herleva, Harlette, Arlette, Arletta and Arlotte, was born about the year 1000. She was the mother of William I of England. She had two further sons, Eudes of Bayeux and Robert, comte de Mortain, who became prominent in William's realm.

The background of Herleve and the circumstances of William's birth are shrouded in mystery. The written evidence dates from a generation or two later, and it is not entirely consistent. The most commonly accepted version says that she was the daughter of a tanner named Fulbert from the small Norman town of Falaise, where they lived. Translation being somewhat uncertain, Fulbert may instead have been a furrier, embalmer, apothecary, or a person who laid out corpses for burial. It is argued by some that Herleve's father was not any of these, but rather a member of the burgher class. The idea is supported by the fact that her brothers appear in a later document as attesters for an under-age William. Also, the count of Flanders later accepted Herleve as a proper guardian for his own daughter. Both facts would be nearly impossible if the father (and therefore the brothers) of Herleve was little more than a peasant.

According to one legend, still recounted by tour guides at Falaise, Herleve's relationship to Robert started when he, the young Duke of Normandy saw her from the roof of his castle tower. The walkway on the roof still looks down on the dyeing trenches cut into stone in the courtyard below, which can be seen to this day from the tower ramparts above. The traditional way of dyeing leather or garments was for individuals to trample barefoot on the garments which were awash in the dyeing liquid in these trenches. Herleve, legend goes, seeing the duke on his ramparts above, raised her skirts perhaps a bit more than necessary in order to attract his eye. The duke was immediately smitten and ordered her brought in (as was customary for any wench who caught the duke's eye) through the back door. Herleve refused, saying she would only enter the duke's castle on horseback through the front gate, and not as an ordinary commoner. The duke, filled with lust, could only agree. In a few days Herleve, dressed in the finest her father could provide, and sitting on a white horse, rode proudly through the front gate, her head held high. This gave Herleve a semi-official status as the duke's mistress. She later gave birth to his son William in 1028, and to a daughter Adela who may have been born in 1030.

Some sources maintain that Herleve married Herluin, vicomte de Conteville in 1031. According to these accounts, Robert always loved her, but the gap in their social status made marriage impossible, so to give her a good life he married her off to one of his favourite noblemen.

From her marriage to Herluin she had two sons: Eudes, who later became bishop of Bayeux and earl of Kent, and Robert, who became comte de Mortain and earl of Cornwall. Both had progeny, and became prominent during William's reign. Herleve and Herluin also had a daughter Emma who married Richard Le Goz, vicomte d'Avranches, and had progeny. It is unsure whether Herluin's unnamed daughter who married Guillaume, seigneur de la Ferté-Macé, was by Herleve or his second wife Fredesindis.

Some sources believe that Herleve died about 1050. According to the monk and chronicler Robert of Torigni (d.1186), she was buried at the abbey of Grestain, which was founded by Herluin and their son Robert around 1050. This would put Herleve in her mid forties around the time of her death. However, David C. Douglas, author of _William the Conqueror,_ suggests that Herleve probably died before Herluin founded the abbey because her name does not appear on the list of benefactors, whereas the name of Herluin's second wife Fredesendis does. 
Herleve|Harlette (I9016)
Geoffrey was born about 950, the son of Foulques II 'the Good', comte d'Anjou, and Gerberge de Tours. The _Chronicle of the Counts of Anjou_ describes him as 'stout-hearted and strong and most successful in battle' and tells of his single-handed victory against Ethelulf the Dane, a Goliath-like figure. He was known as Greygown after a witness to the contest picked him out at the French court by the colour of his robes.

He was count of Anjou from 958 to 987, succeeding his father. He allied with the county of Nantes against the county of Rennes, and allied with Hugues Capet, fearing an invasion by the count of Blois. He was one of the men responsible for bringing Hugues to the throne of France.

About 965 he married Adelais de Vermandois, daughter of Robert de Vermandois, comte de Meaux et Troyes and Adelheid/Wera de Bourgogne. Geoffrey and Adelais had a daughter Ermengarde, also known as Gerberge, who would have progeny with both her husbands Conon I 'le Tort', duc de Bretagne, and Guillaume IV Taillefer, comte d'Angoulême, and two sons of whom Geoffrey died young and his heir Foulques III 'Nera' who would have progeny. By an unnamed second wife Geoffrey also had a son Maurice who is not recorded with progeny.

Geoffrey started by making his power-base the citadel of Angers strategically placing his _fideles_ (close followers) in key areas surrounding the city to protect his territories. The lands of the abbeys of Saint-Aubin and Saint-Serge in Angers provided the _beneficium_ (landed estates granted in feudal tenure) for his most faithful adherents. On this subject, which became the family's theme, Geoffrey advised both his sons Foulques and Maurice: 'No house is weak that has many friends. Therefore I admonish you to hold dear those _fideles_ who have been friends.' Although one of the principal methods of Angevin expansion was by the creation of family connections. Geoffrey exerted his control through various methods. His father had controlled Nantes through his second marriage to Adelaide, the widow of Alain II, duke of Brittany, and Geoffrey continued this by making Alain's illegitimate son Guisle, comte de Nantes, accept him as overlord. With an eye towards Maine, Geoffrey took advantage of the rift that developed between the counts of Maine and the viscounts and bishops of Le Mans. About 971 Geoffroy secured the see of Le Mans for his ally Bishop Seinfroy. In 973 Geoffrey had married his daughter Ermengarde-Gerberge to Conon I 'le Tort', duc de Bretagne, but Conon began to oppose Geoffrey and in 982 the two met at the first battle of Conquereuil with Geoffrey defeating Conon.

Geoffrey had influence in Aquitaine through his sister Adelaide dite Blanche d'Anjou's first marriage to the powerful baron Etienne I de Brioude, count of Gévaudan and Forez, and after his death the lands were ruled by Adelaide-Blanche. His nephews Pons and Bertrande succeeded as counts there and his niece Almodis married Boso II, comte de La Marche et Périgord. In 975 Geoffrey had his brother Guy appointed count and bishop of Le Puy. In 982 Geoffrey married his now widowed sister Adelaide-Blanche to the fifteen-year-old Louis V of France, the two being crowned king and queen in Aquitaine. But the marriage to a woman thirty years Louis' senior failed as did Geoffrey's plans to control Aquitaine through his son-in-law. Through his first wife Adelais, Geoffrey for nearly a decade exerted control over the county of Châlons. Through the marriage of his son Foulques III to Elisabeth, the heiress of Vendôme, Geoffrey brought that county into the Angevin sphere of influence. Fortunately at this same time Geoffrey made his son Foulques his co-ruler since he died shortly thereafter on 21 July 987 while besieging the fortress of Marcon.

I have a death date of February 17, 1879 in Groveland, Oakland, Co. MI.. Sally was the wife of David Irish who died January 08, 1855 in Ortonville, MI.

Can anyone verify this for me? TIA

From MayflowerHistory.com:

John Howland was born about 1599, probably in Fenstanton, Huntington. He came on the Mayflower in 1620 as a manservant of Governor John Carver. During the Mayflower's voyage, Howland fell overboard during a storm, and was almost lost at sea--but luckily for his millions of descendants living today (including Presidents George Bush and George W. Bush, and Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt) he managed to grab hold of the topsail halyards, giving the crew enough time to rescue him with a boat-hook.

It has been traditionally reported that John Howland was born about 1592, based on his reported age at death in the Plymouth Church Records. However, ages at death were often overstated, and that is clearly the case here. John Howland came as a servant for John Carver, which means he was under 25 years old at the time (i.e. he was born after 1595). William Bradford, in the falling-overboard incident, refers to Howland as a "lusty young man," a term that would not likely have applied to a 28-year old given that Bradford himself was only 30. Bradford did call 21-year old John Alden a "young man" though. Howland's wife Elizabeth was born in 1607: a 32-year old marrying a 17-year old is a relatively unlikely circumstance. Howland's last child was born in 1649: a 57-year old Howland would be an unlikely father. All these taken together demonstrate that Howland's age was likely overstated by at least 5 years. Since he signed the "Mayflower Compact", we can assume he was probably at least 18 to 21 years old in 1620.

John Howland had several brothers who also came to New England, namely Henry Howland (an ancestor to both Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford) and Arthur Howland (an ancestor to Winston Churchill). 
Howland, John (I5162)
From Scots-Irish in Va.-Vol-2: David Caruthers filed a marriage bond to Elizabeth Jackson, dau of David Jackson on 14 March 1786.

From Virginia Marriages to 1800: David Caruthers married Elizabeth Jackson on 18 March 1786 in Augusta County, Virginia.

From Virginia Bond, Marriage, Probate Records 1639-1850: The will of David Caruthers dated 25 May 1810 in Augusta County, Virginia mentions wife Elizabeth, sons John and James and oldest daughter Jean. Book WB12-164 Prove Date 27 May 1816

From his obituary John Caruthers was born in Augusta County, Virginia 4 July 1793.

Therefore, we know that David of Augusta County, Virginia had a son named John sometime after 1786. We know that our John was born 4 Jul 1793 in Augusta County, Virginia. But is there any information to show that they are the same person?

After studying Census and Tax lists for Augusta County (details follow) it would appear that there were at most two Caruthers families in Augusta County-The David Caruthers family and the Thomas Caruthers family. We do not see another John as a head of household. Therefore, it would appear likely that there was only one John in Augusta County during this time period.

1790 US Census: Unfortunately the Virginia census records for this year is missing. A reconstructed Tax list for 1790 http://www.binnsgenealogy.com/VirginiaTaxListCensuses/ shows David Caruthers in Augusta County.

1800 US Census: Unfortunately the Virginia census records for this year is missing. A reconstructed Tax list for 1800 http://www.binnsgenealogy.com/VirginiaTaxListCensuses/ shows David Caruthers in Augusta County and Thomas Caruthers in Augusta County.

1810 US Census: David Caruthers in Augusta and Thomas Careathers in Augusta

1820 US Census: Elizabeth Caruthers in Stanton, Augusta County and John Careathers in Waynesboro, Augusta County. (1 male 26-44 and 1 female 26-44 is consistent with his just marrying Nancy Brown earlier in 1820.)

The date of birth of all of David's children is not known. However David's will shows two sons, the eldest born 1786 and one eldest daughter, Jean, birth unknown. He mentions the other daughters would receive bequests as they come of age. Which would imply they were born after 1794, as the will is dated 1810. So, if James was the oldest child, David's birth date was probably 1766 or before. Which means he was aged at least 50 or more when he died in 1816. This would change to an older age if Jean was the oldest child or if he had started having children later in life.
Caruthers, David (I4001)
How do we know that William Irish of Fairgrove Township is the son of Sally Phelps?

Most of our basic information comes from the book by Willis L Irish, “Descendants of John Irish The Immigrant 1629-1963” The full contents of this book can be accessed online at:

According to Willis Irish, Sally Phelps married David Irish; they had 12 children and in 1837 moved to Groveland Township in Oakland County, Michigan. Eight sons and 2 daughters came with them. William was the 10th of 12 children, born 1834 in Fort Ann, New York.

According to Willis Irish, William was married to Polly. They settled in Fairgrove Township and had the following children: Alfred 1862, Sophronia 1867, Mary 1870, Nellie 1873 and Ida 1876. Willis Irish notes that he later remarried to Henrietta between 1876 and 1880. We know that Willis was incorrect on the Polly marriage. A simple review of the census records for 1860, 1870 and 1880 shows William was married to Henrietta. Birth records of Ida and Mary on file with the Tuscola County clerk show Henrietta as the mother. I have not yet found birth records on the other children. The census records for 1850, 1860 and 1870 do show a Polly Irish living in the same household with William. It also shows Polly as 22 years his senior and not as his spouse. My suspicion is Polly is an older sister. Willis does list a Polly born 1832 as a child of David and Sally Irish, but to match with the census information Polly would have to have been born in 1812. Polly remains a question mark, but she very definitely was not Williams’s wife. But in spite of the Polly Irish error all of the information in Willis Irish’s book matches our William Irish.

Sally’s last two children being born in 1843 and in 1846 when Sally was aged 57 and 60. Herb Phelps (a Phelps family researcher) reports that David and Sally were divorced on November 15, 1847 and that she died in Groveland Township on February 17, 1879. The 1850 Census shows David Irish married to Delilah Irish and there are no children living with them. I do not find Sally on the 1850 Census, although I do find her on the 1860 and 1870 Census living with her son Liberty B Irish.

Sally is most likely the person referenced in the quintuplets story. Here is a quote from a Herb Phelps message board post:

“(There was an article in the The Washington Post of March 10, 1808; "The wife of David IRISH of Westfield (Now Fort Ann, Washington Co. NY.)was delivered of five children, two sons and three daughters. They were alive when born , but died in a few hours. They altogether weighed seven pounds and five ounces." Note of this event was also made in the 1810 Census of Queensbury, Warren Co. NY.)
David's wife was Sally PHELPS daughter of Norman PHELPS Sr. of Fort Ann, Washington Co. NY. born July 31, 1785 in Hebron, Tolland Co. CT. They moved to Michigan in 1837 and David & Sally were divorced on November 15, 1847.
Sally died in Groveland, Oakland Co. MI on February 17, 1879”

Another reference:

“David Irish, with a wife and three children, was the last family listed in the 1810 census of Queenbury, Washington County, New York. At the bottom of the page, the census-taker wrote a footnote concerning David's wife as follows: 'This woman is 24 years old and has had 10 children, 5 of which were born at one and the same time.' This may be the first instance of quintuplets recorded in this country."
Printed in National Genealogical Society Quarterly, June 1965, Vol. 53.”

I have attached an image from the 1810 Census, with an asterisk in the David Irish column and a note below which says exactly what the above reference stated.

Some more references concerning this event:

The number of children caught our eye, so we looked at the family. The note is really there, and does appear to be marked for David.

The Irish families living in Queensbury in 1810 are:
Amos Irish
Andrew Irish
Benjamin Irish
David Irish
Jonathan Irish

There is an extremely well presented website for the Irish family at:

We copied the following information from there:
Benjamin Irish
Birth , 16 Mar 1749/50 , S. Kingston, Washington, RI
Father , Joseph Irish, b. 20 Apr 1724, S. Kingston, Washington Co., RI
Mother , Dorcas (Irish)
Group Sheet , F0918

1. Andrew Irish, b. BET 1765 AND 1784
2. David Irish, b. 23 Jan 1783
3. Amos Irish, b. 1786, Amenia, Dutchess, NY
4. Jonathan Irish, b. 27 Jul 1789, Warren or Washington Co., NY

This looks like the family.

It should be noted that though the census says that Mrs Irish had 10 kids, only 3 are living with them.

If this is true that Sally had ten children by 1810, only 1 of the children listed by Willis Irish in his book was born before 1810. That would mean 21 children!!!! With the last born at age 60. It seems only fair to ask a few questions. Was Sally really the wife who had the quintuplets? Was Sally really having children at age 60? I cannot answer the first question, but I can answer the second.

Job Irish born in 1843 is listed as the 11th child in Willis’s book. He is given id# 3493 in the book. But, reviewing the book we see that Sally’s son Liberty B had a son, also in 1843, also named Job who is id#3499 in the book. It seems odd that the same name would be duplicated not only in the same generation, but in the same year by close relatives living in the same Township. We have not seen this in the family before. The census records for 1850 show only 1 Job Irish and he is living with Liberty B Irish, not David or Sally. I have found the Oakland County Death Record for Job Irish. He died January 19, 1871 at the age of 27y 11m 6d, which would give a DOB of February 3, 1843. The death record shows he was born and died in Groveland Township of consumption. It lists parents of Liberty B and Jane Irish of Michigan. Based on the above information I conclude that Willis Irish was incorrect and that child number 11 was actually a grand child, the son of Liberty B and Sarah Jane Irish.

Norman Irish born in 1846 is listed as the 12th child in Willis’s book. He is given id# 3494 in the book. Willis lists the following information for Norman P: born 7-29-1846 died 9-9-1856, son of J.R. and S.J (we will see what this means, shortly) a footnote states buried in Ortonville Cemetery, Groveland Township, Oakland, Michigan. Reviewing the book we see that Liberty B Irish also had a child Norman P id# 3500 born in 1844 and died in 1915. Again, I find it odd that close relatives living close together would reuse the same name so quickly. A review of the Census records shows only one Norman Irish and he is living with Liberty J. We consult the Ortonville Cemetery Inscriptions copied by Merle Perry Jr in July of 1964. We see only one Norman buried there. The listing reads Irish, Norman P s/o LB & SJ died 9/9/1856 age 10y 1m 10d. s/o means ‘son of’ according to the books abbreviation guide. The age translates to DOB of 7/29/1846. The DOB and DOD match with Willis’s listing for Norman P, son of David and Sally. But, s/o LB & SJ means son of Liberty B and Sarah J. Willis had by some kind of typo translated LB to JR. Based on the above, I conclude that child number 12 was actually a grand child, the son of Liberty B and Sarah Jane Irish.

Therefore, William was the last child of David & Sally Irish. Unfortunately his death record does not list his parents and I have no source records to show Sally as William’s mother. So for now, we must rely on Willis Irish to show William’s parentage.

I have also ordered the complete Civil War pension file records of William Irish from the National Archives. We know he applied for a pension, but we do not know if he received one. If he did, there should be some interesting personal information on file. NARA (the National Archives) says 60 to 120 days to receive anything, or nothing if that is the case.

Jenks, Sophia (I1196)

This town is bounded on the north by Fair Grove, having Denmark on the west, Vassar to the south and Indian Fields east. Cass River flows through the southeast corner of the town, about three sections lying to the south and east of the river. The most of the town is rolling; about one-third perhaps, in the southeast corner, along the river, being level and having a more sandy soil than the other two-thirds, which is generally a clay loam.
This was among the earliest settled towns in the county. The first settlers in the town were Levi Rogers and family, who came in early in 1850. The first blow struck for improvement was by Andrew Jackson Rogers on land which his father had purchased of Townsend North. From Levi Rogers the town took the name of Rogers under which it was organized.
Shortly after came two German families, and about the same time William Jameson, Jonas Belknap, Ezra A. Belknap, John Freeman, S. H. Moore, Daniel Gorton Truman, and within the next two years Patrick McGlone, Ephraim Smith, Frank Fairhan, Daniel Kinyon, King Allen, Hiram Gibbs, Lucius Marvin, James Wing, Henry S.

Until 1852 the only roads were the lumberman’s supply and logging roads, very serviceable in winter but almost impassable in spring and summer. In 1852 a road was laid out from the present site of Watrousville which was cut through in 1853, the people generally turning out and helping to open the road. The commissioners to lay out this road were Jackson Rogers and William Jameson. Martin Miller, of Tuscola, was surveryor.
