LEWIS BUNN, Bloomington; was born September 16, 1805, on a farm in Walnut Creek Township, in Ross Co., Ohio, about four miles from the town of Delphi; his father, Peter Bunn, was a farmer and land speculator; he was a Pennsylvania German, while his mother was an English lady. Lewis Bunn was one of twenty-one children. His father was twice married; from his first marriage sprang eight children, and from his second, thirteen; Lewis was the youngest but three. He received his scanty education in a school formed by the farmers who clubbed together and hired a teacher, to whom they paid $3 or $4 per quarter and board; such a schoolmaster usually taught during the winter months and worked a farm in summer; the schoolhouses were simply log cabins; when he was 17 years old his school days ended; at the age of 18, he was sent to Chillicothe, and apprenticed for four years to learn the trade of blacksmith. He learned his trade rapidly and well, but he was not satisfied with his education, and took private lessons in his leisure moments. When his apprenticeship was ended, he moved to Clarke Co., Ohio, where he stayed three years. In 1831, he was married to Margery Haines, of Xenia, Ohio; his marriage was a happy one, and was blessed by the birth of five children, three boys and two girls, four of whom are now living- Benjamin H., Catherine R., Thomas J., William H.; his wife afterward died. In 1833, he moved to Bloomington, Ill., with his brother-in-law, Dr. Haines. Here, in 1846, he married Lucinda Blevins; by this marriage, he has had five children, all of whom are dead; when he came to Bloomington, he followed his trade and continued at it until 1859, when he retired from business; immediately upon his arrival at Bloomington, he connected with his trade the manufacture of agricultural implements, and in those days he was enabled to make this quite a profitable business. Oliver Ellsworth was for eighteen years Mr. Bunn’s partner; their plows, which they made by hand, were in great demand and were called for even from Texas; they bore the trade-mark of Bunn & Ellsworth, and are still well spoken of.

Dawson Whitlach (or Whitlatch) son of Barnet

SFembla ☆ (View posts)

Posted: 27 Apr 2003 12:57PM

Classification: Query

Surnames: Whitlach, Whitlatch, Lowther

I wonder if anyone has information about my g-g-grandfather Dawson W. "Doss" Whitlach (or Whitlatch.) He was born March 1840 in PA, and his parents were Barnet & Rebecca Whitlatch of Greene County, PA. He was married to Sarah Lowther in 1866, probably in Ohio, and they raised a family in Monroe County, OH. Their children include: Rosalie, Mary Ella, Louisa, Clarinda, George William, Margaret, and Alice.

Dawson's last name is listed in public records as "Whitlatch" but his son and further descendants spell it "Whitlach." This leads me to believe that the family name was pronounced phonetically but kept the historic spelling.

Can anyone can shed light on Dawson or Barnet, or on this branch of the family in general? Many thanks! Stacey

James Locke's Life

Posted 20 Mar 2014 by Chavez Caroline

'He prob. went with his father from Hopkinton to Ashby, (then Townsend,) in 1749. His name appears on a Committee 1763 - and in 1758 he was chosen an 'Informer of Deer.' In 1767, a portion of Townsend, Fitchburg and Ashburnham, was set off and incorporated by the name of Ashby; and at the first Town Meeting, Mh. 30, 1767, James Locke, Jr., was chosen Town Clerk and Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, to which offices he was frequently re-elected so long as he remained in town. May 26, 1769, he was chosen an Agent to confer with Agents from other towns, relative to a petition to the Gen. Court for a land tax on non-residents; and 1768 and '71, he was appointed an Agent to attend the Gen. Court to get a land tax laid on non-residents. In 1769, he was one of a committee to build a meeting-house, and whne completed in 1772, he was on a committee to 'dignify the pews,' His name appears on most of the important committees, and he was one of the leading men in the town until 1773, when he moved to Townsend, and was immediately, according to the custom of the times, 'warned out,' but at the first town meeting held after his removal, was chosen moderator and added to the Committee of Correspondence, which had been chosen the year previous. At a town meeting, June 19, 1775, 'Mr. Locke protested against the proceedings (of the town), the warrent coming out in the King's name.' In 1777, he was appointed 'to take acknowledgments and recognisances of debts,' a member of the Middlesex Convention at Concord, Aug. 1774, and of another, Oct. 1779, and of the State Convention to form a Constition the same year; and a Representative in the Legislature in 1783. Aug. 24, 1775, a warrant was issued by the Council to 'pay James Locke (pounds) 6.11.11., for clothing furnished the army.' During the time he resided at Ashby, he lived on land which he bought of his father, it being the southerly part of his father's homestead. His house, which has long since been removed, stood in the orchard south of the house that was afterwards built byn his brother Jonathan, and which is now standing. His residence at Townsend was about a mile north of the 'Harbor.' He did not labor on his farm for many years in consequence of an injury to one of his hands, but was a land surveyor for a long time. He moved form Townsend to Sullivan, N.H. about 1784, where he d. Jany. 19, 1808, a. 78. Although deprived of the advantages of an early education, his energy and perseverance enabled himto attain a position that gave him great influence with his townsmen, and he left a character behind him that his descendants would do well to emulate.'

John Bruce was a landowner, farmer and operator of a grist mill. He died in an
epidemic that was rampant in the Winchester area. John, Sarah and family came
from Scotland after 1724. Between 1737 and 1740, he settled on Opecuon Creek
near Winchester, VA. By 1740, John Bruce and Mary Littler (George Bruce's mother-in-law)
were operating grist mills, sawmills and carding/fulling fills. This 255-acre tract is located
on Turkey Run, a branch of Opequon Creek (headwaters Evan Thomas / Branson Spring).
The SE corner of the 255 acres is present-day Brucetown. Frederick County Highway 667

Title: Memoirs of the Bruce Family by William Bruce
Author: William Bruce
August 6, 1851
Written by William Bruce, Age 75

My first recollection that I have of my ancestors was hearing my grandfather,
James Bruce, telling that himself and a younger brother, George Bruce, came from
Scotland about the year 1740. My grandfather located in Winchester, Virginia.
He was a house carpenter by trade, and I have heard him say that he built the first
frame house that was ever built in that town. About the year 1744 he married a
Margaret McMahon and moved to the north branch of the Potomac in Maryland.
He continued there, following his trade and farming until he raised a large family
of children. My father, William Bruce, was the eldest. He was born the 14th day of
February, 1745. He had two sons younger than my father and six daughters, viz.,
Elizabeth, who married a man by the name of Thomas Anderson; Margaret, who
married David Cox; Jane was married to a William Marshall; Nancy, that married
Samuel Percifull; Ann, who married Samuel Glass; and James, who married one
Polly Runyan, and George, that married the widow Biggs.

My father married a widow Percifull, and the youngest daughter, Sally, married
a Joshua Carmen, a Baptist preacher, a man of excellent character and a considerable
speaker. He moved to the state of Ohio about fifty years ago, raised a large family
and died at a good old age-about eighty-five. From the above enumerated uncles
and aunts there has sprung an almost innumerable multitude. They mostly moved
to Kentucky at an early day and settled in Nelson County.

My father, soon after marrying my mother, moved to Monoghahela and settled about
fourteen miles above Pittsburgh, between the mouths of Peteso Creek and Newels Store,
now Elizabethtown. It was then the haunt of Indians and forts were the only place of
safety for the families of those hardy pioneers. I had two sisters older than myself,
that were born in the fort, and myself, the third child, soon after they ventured to
their farms. I was born the Sixth of August, 1776, one month and two days after
Independence was declared. I can, with the Apostle Paul, say that I was free born,
while our forefathers had to obtain their freedom by their blood and treasure. During
the Revolutionary War, my father was frequently called upon to perform military service.
The first that I recollect him talking about was being stationed at a place then called
Catfish Camp, called after an old Indian chief, near a place now called Washington,
and not far from a place on the Monongahela then called Red Stone. My father served
then in the capacity of lieutenant. The next service he performed was under General
George Rogers Clark. He commanded a company under the veteran soldier to Louisville;
was absent from home some five or six months.
As to my mother's family, I have a very imperfect knowledge. Her maiden name was
Polly Lucas. Her first husband was Richard Percifull. After his death she married my
father. My grandfather by my mothers side was William Lucas. Was my grandmother
a Lucas? What maiden name was I never learned, as she died about my first recollection.
My grandfather Lucas died before I was born. All I know of him is that he was a seafaring
man. I recollect an Uncle Robinson Lucas and two aunts. They married two bothers,
William and Dennis Murphy; moved to the state of Ohio at an early date.

Land deed record:
A warrant for the 318 acre tract was first issued under Virginia entry to Richard
McMahon (later spelled McMachen) who had the tract surveyed on July 13, 1769,
but never had it patented.
On June 4, 1770 McMachen sold the tract to James Bruce for 100 pounds in Pennsylvania
currency. Under the bill of sale the land was described as “a certain tract of land lying
on the west side Of the Monongahela cornered, joining Macfarlane on the south and
William McMachen on the north, being a half mile on the river and a half mile back.

On March 17, 1783 Benjamin Bentley purchased the tract from James Bruce and
George Bruce (no record of title can be found in George Bruce’s name). The land at that
time sold for 40 shillings in gold or silver or its value in good mercantile whiskey.
It is at this point that the tract is described as being in Nottingham township.

Hugh Parrell willed 300 acres to John Bruce in 1748; Parrell engaged James Wood to survey this land (recorded at the time as 402 acres) on 10 March 1735/36. James and George Bruce, sons of John Bruce, commissioned another survey on 26 April 1753. Out of the 402-acre survey, George Bruce received 315 acres and James Bruce received 310 acres from Lord Fairfax on 12 and 14 April 1760. George's 315 acres is on Ash Hollow Run, with part of Shenandoah Hills on the south leg of the land and Fairfax Road (Virginia Highway 7) and County Highway 656 on the southeast section of the tract. James' 310 acres is on the south side of Redbud Run served by Frederick County Highway 656, north from Virginia. Highway 7 on the southeast part of the tract. John Bruce was in Orange County, Virginia by 24 July 1740 when he was appointed to make an inventory of the estate of Michael Sheppard, deceased; Hugh Parrell, Robert Calvert and William Glover were delegated also and any three of them were required to form the audit commission. John was deceased by 1 November 1748 when his will (written 4 November 1747) was proved in Frederick County Court. He willed 150 acres ("the plantation I now live on") to his wife Ann and son George. His will mentioned daughters Margaret Carter (wife of Richard) and William (son-in-law) and Mary Albin.

A John Bruce (son of Thomas Bruce/Bruice) was christened in the Church of Scotland (Presbyterian) on 7 September 1690. In Aber­deen, Scotland, three of John's children were also christened: James on 20 May 1720, George on 27 April 1722 and Margaret on 5 March 1727.

George and his wife Rachel Littler Bruce sold the 315-acre grant land to Robert Rutherford for 150 pounds on 4 April 1761. On 1 June 1761, George purchased 255 acres from his mother-in-law Mary Littler for 200 pounds; this land was part of a 420-acre tract situated on both sides of Evan Thomas Run. By 1740, John Bruce and Mary Littler were operating grist mills, sawmills and carding and fulling mills on this land. The 255-acre tract is located on Turkey Run, a branch of Opequon Creek (headwaters Evan Thomas/Branson Spring). The south corner of the 255 acres is pres­ent-day Brucetown.
George Bruce (b. 1722 c. ) was deceased by 30 June 1800 when his will (written 25 January 1797) was proved in Frederick County Court. He willed the dwelling house and other houses with a one­-acre lot to his wife Rachel Bruce, "for her natural life." He bequeathed the section of the plantation northwest of the Great Road (Highway 667), with grist mill and all buildings, to his son George. He willed the remainder of the plantation on the southeast side of the road, with grist mill, sawmills and other improvements (including present-day Brucetown), to his son James. The will stipulated that James, who was downstream, was prohibited from raising the water level to the disadvantage of his brother George. James was also to receive land adjacent to and on the south side of the Monongahela River. George was instructed to pay his mother Rachel Bruce one-third of the mill and plantation profits and James was to pay her 10 pounds annually for the use of the sawmill. George willed five shillings each to daughters Sarah Walker and Leah Hanry. Al'ter the death of Rachel Bruce, daughter Rebeckah Chenowith was to receive the house and lot. 119
James Bruce (b. 1722 c.) and his wife Margaret sold their 310­acre grant land to Robert Rutherford for 275 pounds on 20 March 1763.

10 Nov 1623 Mr. William Cambden, Clarens.: on the South side of the broad aisle.Son of Sampson Camden, citizen and painter-stainer of London, by Elizabeth, dau. of Giles Curwen, of Poulton Hall, co. Lancaster, and born in the Old Bailey, London, 02 May 1551. He became Second Master of Westminster School in 1575 and Head Master in 1592-3 , Prebendary of Salisbury 06 Feb 1588-9 (although a layman), Richmond Herald 22 Oct 1597 , and the next day Clarencieux King of Arms. He died at Chislehurst, Kent, the 9th, and was undoubtedly buried in the Abbey 19 Nov 1623 , the date in the Register being an error. The inscription on his monument also perpetuates an error, as it records his death in his 74th year, whereas, if the date which he himself assigned to his birth be correct, he was exactly 72 yrs. 6 mos. and 7 days old. His will, dated 21 May , was proved 10 Nov 1623 , the very day after his death, by his sole executor, William Heather, Gent. But little can be added at the present day to the personal history of this famous man, the excellent society which bears and perpetuates his name having exhausted all accessible resources of information respecting him. A few entries from the Chapter Books of Westminster may, however, not be without interest. His name first occurs 16 May 1587 , among certain regulations respecting the College Library, thus: "Item, that Mr. Camden, usher for the tyme present, or the usher or a peticanon hereafter, by the apoyntment of Mr. Deane, shall be keper of the said librarie, who shall have a care to kepe and leave, order and dispose, and safelie performe the same, and for his paynes there imployd shall have yearlie twenty shillings." On 02 Dec 1591 Mr. Camden had the lease of "a little tenement in the Close for the term of his life." Under the date of 29 Jan 1593-4 : "It is decreed that Mr. Camden, scholemaster, and Mr. George Bellott, reseaver, shall have their diett allowed them at our common table, during the tyme of Mr Deane and the prebendaries keping table in the Colledge, and the time of the contynewyng of their two severall offycies." Under date of 10 May 1594 : "Wheras we have receaved hir Maties letters in favor of Mr. Camden, it is agreed by the Deane and prebendaries present that there shall be a Chapter holden the 13 Jun next, being Thursday, for the dewtifull satisfying hir Maties pleasure in that behalfe." And under date of 13 Jun 1594 : "Wee the Deane and Chapter have graunted and passed under our seale the daye and yeare above written, unto Mr. William Camden our Scholemaster, a Patent for his manes Diet during the life of the said Mr. Camden." It may be added that the register of St. Augustine's, London, records the marriage in that church, 04 Sep 1575 , of "Sampson Camden and Avis Carter;" but whether this was a second marriage of the father of the great antiquary, or that of a brother or other relative, it is impossible to determine.

Hi there,
I'm looking for some information about my g-g-grandfather, Dawson Whitlatch. He was in Pennsylvania as a child in the 1850 census but I can't seem to find him or his parents, Barnet & Rebecca Whitlatch, anywhere in 1860 or 1870. Dawson appears again in 1880 in Monroe County with his wife and children and I'm trying to figure out where he was in between 1850 and 1880.
I know Dawson served in Company C of the 92nd Ohio Infantry. Does anyone know when and where this company recruited in Ohio? I wrote to NARA for his records but they didn't respond for about six months so I recently wrote again. But I'm getting antsy...
Can anyone help?
Escaped slaves in the Whitlatch family?

My gg-grandfather, Dawson Whitlatch, son of Barnet & Rebecca Whitlatch, claimed that his mother & grandmother were escaped slaves. In the 1850 census, Rebecca & the Whitlatch children are listed as "mulatto," and in 1860 Dawson & the family he is living with are listed as "mulatto," which seems to bolster his claim. In 1860, there is a Catharine Riggle, age 75, living with Barnet & Rebecca in Belmont County, Ohio. I wonder if this Catharine Riggle might be Rebecca's mother? And has anyone else heard the story of escaped slaves?
