3 ?JOSIAH BLOOD (20 Jan 1716/7?Sep 1776) ? Died at Fort Ticonderoga, or perhaps at Mount Independence in what is now Orwell, Vermont, on the opposite shore of Lake Champlain, in September 1776. According to Harris [24?25], ?Josiah had volunteered in July 1776, joining a regiment of NH Volunteers sent to reinforce the army in Canada. In consequence of the retreat of the continental troops from Canada this regiment went no further north than Ticonderoga. Josiah was not a young man, but in his 60th year when the rigors of war proved too much for him and he succumbed to the ?feaver and Ague? shortly after sending this appeal:

?Camp Mount Independence 4th Sept 1776

?Loving wife and children,

?I take this opportunity to inform you that I am in something of low circumstances of health at present and by reason of old age I find myself unable to undergo the fatigues of a campaign therefore I entreat that you would hire a man and send up to take my place as soon as possible & furnish him with a horse so that I may ride home if God should be pleased to spare my life so long. The man that takes my place may have the use of my gun and accoutrements during the term I engaged for. Pray spare no pains or money and I will see that it is paid or order the same paid as my life is at stake if I continue here long. There is no prospect but the army will remain here till our enlistments are out. It is a sickly time at present with the feaver and Ague. So committing myself with my concerns to God and desiring your prayers for me I remain your loving husband and affectionate father till death.

5 A note in Washington County, New York (974.70 W276hs) says, in part, "He (a James Rogers) was born in Londonderry, New Hampshire, April 21, 1763, son of James and Lydia Rogers; at two years of age went with his parents to Baskingridge, Somerset Co., NJ, and there they lived until he was 12 years of age. Then they (1775) removed to Salem and settled on the farm next east of that long known as the "Deacon Stevenson" place. Rogers, James (I1022)

7 According to his daughter Bertha, Cyrus's father was a French scientist whose last name was Ballou. Ballou died shortly after Cyrus was born and his penniless mother gave Cyrus to her brother, a Henry King. Cyrus was raised by the Kings and eventually took the King name. King, Cyrus (I3332)
 
8 According to various records, James' family can be traced back to a John Leonard, born in 1479, who lived in Knole, County Kent, England. Also, we have information of relationships as follows: "February 2, 1732/3, Hannah Dean, sister of Capt. James Leonard (2nd son of James) gave the following account of her relatives: First her great-grandfather was Henry Leonard, her grandfather was Thomas Leonard, and her father was James Leonard, her grandmother's name was White, her mother's name was Martin. James, her father, lived and died in Taunton. Hannah's borthers were Thomas, James, Joseph, Benjamin, John, and Uriah, and her sisters were Abigail and Rebecca." James Leonard of Taunton, Massachusetts, Ironmaster (from the Research and Manuscripts of Elisha Clark Leonard and G. Marston Leonard.)

James and his family came to America in 1645 from Pontypool, Monmouthshire (now Gwent), Wales and settled first in Lynn, Massachusetts and then in Taunton, Massachusetts. He was an iron-worker and in 1652 he and his brother, Henry, "set up a bloomery on Two Mile river," this bing the first forge for the manufacture of iron in Taunton.

James was a friend of the Indian Chief, King Philip, often entertaining him at his home. In October of 1665, King Philip conveyed about 250 acres of land at Mattapoisett Neck in Swansea to James. Tradition says that it was because of this friendship that, at the outbreak of King Philip's War, King Philip gave strict orders that his men were never to harm a Leonard, and conjecture says that because of this, Taunton was not attacked during the war.

James Leonard could not read or write when he came to America but he was able to amass property amounting to 500 pounds during his lifetime.

12 Along with the normal difficulties of being a pioneer wife, raising eleven children and three grandchildren whose parents had died, Mary ran afoul of the "Witchcraft Delusion" in her later years. When she was about 80, she was standing at her door one day when a rider came by, and his horse stumbled. Although he was not unseated, he heard a half-witted boy cry out that Goodwife Bradbury had caused the problem and had the power of the Devil. Upon questioning, the boy said she had muttered strangely when the rider appeared, and when he was in front of her home, a blue boar ran out of the house and between the horse's legs. Then, she had recalled the boar and sent it to the back of the cabin. On this evidence, the cry of "Witch!" was heard. She was brought to trial with others who were accused. Her husband spoke eloquently in her defense, and over a hundred other neighbors also spoke on her behalf. Accounts vary, but it appears she was convicted, but not sentenced to death or any of the various trials of truth. Perkins, Mary (I632)

15 Anne MARBURY, my 10th great grand aunt (by marriage), was the daughter of Reverend Francis MARBURY and Bridget DRYDEN, and was born in 1591 in Alford, Lincolnshire, England. She married William HUTCHINSON, a merchant, 9 Aug 1612 in London. She and her husband came to America in 1634 with Reverend John Lothrop's group on the ship "Griffin" and settled in Boston.

No stranger to religion, Anne grew up during the persecution of the Catholics and Separatists under Elizabeth and James I. Her father, Rev. Francis Marbury, had been imprisoned twice for preaching against the incompetence of English ministers, though he later became the rector of St. Martin's Vintry, London, rector of St. Pancras, Soper Lane, and finally rector of St. Margaret's, New Fish Street. He was holding two of these offices simultaneously when he died in 1611.

Anne began her involvment with religion quite innocently, using her intelligence to interpret the only book available to her - the Bible. She had followed her beloved minister, Reverend John Cotton, whose removal to New England a year earlier had been "a great trouble to me...I could not be at rest but I must come hither."

The religious climate in the Massachusetts Bay Colony was oppresive. As the colony took hold, ministers emphasized everyone's pious duty to pray, fast and discipline oneself. Noting that the male members of Boston's church met regularly after sermons to discuss the Bible, she started to hold similar meetings for women in her own home. At first the women discussed the previous Sunday's sermons, but before long Anne began telling them of her own beliefs which differed from those of the Boston ministers. She attracted hundreds of women - aided by her reputation as a skilled midwife - and men, too, soon joined her discussion group.

Brilliant, articulate and learned in the Bible and theology, she denied that conformity with the religious laws were a sign of godliness and inisted that true godliness came from inner experience of the Holy Spirit. Anne further exacerbated the local elders by claiming that only two Boston ministers were "elect" or saved, John Cotton and her brother-in-law, John Wheelwright.

Anne's weekly meetings took on a new importance. As many as eighty people filled her house, including "some of the magistrates, some gentlemen, some scholars and men of learning." Among them was Sir Henry Vane, who became governor of the colony in 1636. When Anne, with the aid of Governor Vane and John Cotton, attemped to have her brother-in-law, John Wheelwright installed as minister of the Boston chuch, most of the congregation supported her. But the pastor of the church, Reverend John Wilson, gave a speech on the "inevitable dangers of separation" caused by the religious dissensions, and joined with John Winthrop in opposing her.

What started as a religious point of difference grew into a schism that threatened the political stability of the colony. To her opponents, questioning the church meant questioning the State. Anne's ideas were branded as the heresy of "Antinomianism" (a belief that Christians are not bound by moral law), and her followers became known as "Antinomians". Intended to be derogatory, the term was erroneously applied to Anne's followers, who did not believe that the inner Holy Spirit released them from obligation to moral law.

The colonial government moved to discipline her and her numerous followers in Boston. In May 1637, Vane lost the governorship to John Winthrop. To prevent new Antinomians from settling, he imposed a restriction on immigrants, among them Anne's brother and several of her friends. In August, eighty-two "heresies" committed by the Antinomians were read at a synod, and a ban was placed on all private meetings.

But Wheelwright continued to preach and Anne now held her meetings twice a week. In November, Winthop and his supporters filed charges against Anne and Wheelwright, who were then put on trial for heresy before a meeting of the General Court. Intending to prove that Anne's behavior was immoral, Winthrop described her meetings as "a thing not tolerable nor comely in the sight of God, nor fitting for your sex," and accused her of breaking the Fifth Commandment by not honoring her father and mother (in this case, the magistrates of the colony). At this trial, she parried all questions so well that Edmund S. Morgan, a biographer of Gov. John Winthrop, was led to comment that Anne Hutchinson was the governor's "intellectual superior in everything except political judgment; in everything except the sense of what was possible in this world." Answering deftly, Anne came close to clearing herself of all charges. But suddenly, she mentioned that she had had several revelations. The Lord revealed himself to her, she said, "upon a Throne of Justice, and all the world appearing before him, and though I must come to New England, yet I must not fear nor be dismaied," she said. "Therefore, take heed. For I know that for this that you goe about to doe unto me," she threatened, "God will ruin you and your posterity, and this whole State." Winthop immediately replied, "I am
persuaded that the revelation she brings forth is delusion." The court voted to banish her from the colony, "as being a woman not fit for our society".

Wheelwright was exiled and shortly left for New Hamphire while Anne was put under house arrest for the winter to await a church trial in the spring. On March 15, 1638, Anne was brought to trial before the elders of the church of Boston. When her sons and sons-in-law tried to speak on her behalf, John Cotton cautioned them against "hindering" the work of God in healing her soul. To the women of the congretation he said to be careful in listening to her, "for you see
she is but a woman and many unsound and dayngerous Principles are held by her."

Once her friend, Cotton now turned full force against her, attacking her meetings as a "promiscuous and filthie coming together of men and women without
Distinction of Relation of Marriage," and accused her of believing in free love. "Your opinions frett like a Gangrene and spread like a Leprosie, and will eate
out the very Bowells of Religion."

Then Reverend Wilson, whom she had once tried to evict from the Boston church, delivered her excommunication. "I doe cast you out and in the name of
Christ I doe deliver you up to Satan, that you may learne no more to blaspheme, to seduce, and to lye."

"The Lord judgeth not as man judgeth," she retored. "Better to be cast out of the church than to deny Christ."

Banished from Boston, Anne Hutchinson with her husband, children and 60 followers settled in the land of Narragansetts, from whose chief, Miantonomah,
they purchased the island of Aquidneck (Peaceable Island), now part of Rhode Island. In March, 1638 they founded the town of Pocasset, the Indian name for
that locality; the name "Portsmouth" was given to the settlement in 1639. Here they established that colony's first civil government.

After William's death in 1642, Anne took her children, except for five of the eldest, to the Dutch colony in New York. But a few months later, fifteen Dutchmen
were killed in a battle between Mohegans and the Narragansetts. In August, 1643 the Mohegans raided the Hutchinson house and slaughtered Anne and five of
her youngest children. Only one young daughter who was present, Susanna who was taken captive, survived. (Note: Many older sources insist that ALL of
Anne's children except her daughter, Susanna were killed with her. This is simply not true. Sons Edward, Richard and Samuel were not present, nor were her
eldest daughters, Faith and Bridget, most of whom left numerous descendants.)

The site of Anne's house and the scene of her murder is in what is now Pelham Bay Park, within the limits of New York City, less than a dozen miles from the
City Hall. Not far from it, beside the road, is a large glacial boulder, popularly called Split Rock from its division into two parts, probably by the action of
frost aided by the growth of a large tree, the stump of which separates the parts. The line of vision of one looking through the split towards Hutchinson River
at the foot of the hill will very nearly cross the site of the house. In 1911 a bronze tablet to the memory of Mrs. Hutchinson was placed on Split Rock by the
Society of Colonial Dames of the State of New York, who recognized that the resting place of this most noted woman of her time was well worthy of such a
memorial. The tablet bears the following inscription:

Some twentieth century observers credit Anne Hutchinson with being the first American woman to lead the public fight for religious diversity and female quality. In his 1971 biography, Eleanor and Franklin, Joseph P. Lash reported that Eleanor Roosevelt began her list of America's greatest women with Anne Hutchinson. Anne did indeed use her considerable influence as a woman to test the Massachusetts Bay Colony's religious tolerance which, ironically, had been the reason for the settlement.

19  WINFRED BENHAM, MOTHER AND DAUGHTER
court held in Nov 1692
Winfred Benham of Wallingford being summoned to appear at the Court for examination upon suspicion of witchcraft, was now present, and the witnesses were called to testify what they had to say in the case, and accordingly gave in their testimonies in writing which there read in the bearing of the said Winfred. And she being called to say what she had to say for herself, her general answer was, that she knew nothing of the matters testified, and was not concerned therein. She also gave in some testimonies for herself which were read.

The court having heard and Considered all the evidence against the said Winfred Benham and not finding sufficient grounds of conviction for further prosecution (at present) of the said Winfred, do therefore at this time dismiss the business, yet advising the said Winfred Benham solemnly to reflect upon the case, and grounds of suspicion given in and alleged against her, and told her if further grounds of suspicion of witchcraft, or fuller evidences should appear against her by reason of mischief done to the bodies or estate of any by any preternatural acts proved against her she might justly fear and expect to be brought to her trial for it.

Court held in June 1693

Winfred Benham of Wallingford, her husband Joseph Benham being bound in a bond of 20 pounds for her appearance at this Court for further examination about Witchcraft, he was now called and appeared,
and the Court adjourned the case to their next session, and then upon notice given them the parties to appear, and the said bond to continue for said appearance, which said Benham consented to.
Winifred Sr. was accused of witchcraft twice - the 2nd time her daughter, Winifred, was included. They fled to New York where some of her other children were.†

20 Baptized 8 Oct 1771 in Tavistock Crossman, Ann (I933)
 
21 Born during Mayflower crossing. Hopkins, Oceanus (I2148)
 
22 BORN: About 1556 (he stated he was 63 in a 28 April 1619 Leyden document), probably Canterbury, Kent, England, son of Lyonell
Chilton and his second wife (her name is unknown).
DIED: 8 December 1620, on board the Mayflower
MARRIED: probably about 1586 based on baptism of first known child. Her name is currently unknown. The claim by John Hunt in
The American Genealogist 38:244-245 that his wife was possibly Susanna Furner has been recently disproven on the basis of the
discovery of Susanna Furner's baptism record, which indicates she was far too young (only 12) to be married and having children in
1586. See Michael Paulick, "The 1609-1610 Excommunications of Mrs. Chilton and Moyses Fletcher--Mayflower Pilgrims" in the
New England Historical and Genealogical Register, volume 153 (October 1999) for further information on this.

James Chilton, a tailor by trade, was the oldest Mayflower passenger, and one of the first to die after reaching the New World. He was
born and raised in Canterbury, Kent, England and around 1600 moved to Sandwich, Kent.

By July 1615, and probably as early as 1610, James, his wife, and at least some of his children were living in Leyden, Holland. On 28
April 1619, James Chilton and his daughter Isabella were caught in an anti-Armenian riot and James was hit in the head with a large stone
and required the services of the town surgeon, Jacob Hey.

He came on the Mayflower with his wife and daughter Mary. James and his wife died the first winter, leaving their daughter orphaned;
she probably joined with the household of Myles Standish.

Mary Chilton came on the Mayflower at the young age of 13, and popular legend gives her the distinction of being the first female to
step ashore at Plymouth. She married John Winslow, who came in the ship Fortune in 1621, and was the brother of Mayflower
passengers Edward Winslow and Gilbert Winslow.

34 Col. John Blair
The following thoughts about Col. Blair were written by his descendant, Thomas R. Sparrow.

My fourth great-grandfather was Col. John Blair. His wife's name was Sarah _______. Many Blair researchers have guessed that her maiden name was Kelso as John and Sarah named their second son Hugh Kelso Blair. But, Sarah's maiden name is not proven.

Family tradition had it that Col. John was an officer in the British Army who came to this country in 1776, switched sides, and fought against the British as an American militia officer. In our family we always assumed this to be true and assumed that his family followed him here from England after the war.

In February of 1998, I was in the Vermont Historical Society library and was using the LDS Ancestral Files. I don't know what caused me to do it (because I wasn't researching Blairs at the time), but I did a search on John Blair. Much to my surprise I found a John Blair in Massachusetts in the 1740s. He was married to Sarah Kelso and Sarah and John had all of the children I knew the family to have had, on all the correct birthdates, and all (save one) born in Pelham, Massachusetts. The LDS records showed the son, John Jr., being born in Donegal Co., Ireland.

The library had a copy of the Vital Records of Pelham, Massachusetts. I went to it and looked up Blair births. I found the right number of Blairs being born to John and Sarah on the right birth dates, but the book said the given names weren't known because the page in the original was torn. Some fragments of names were there. The "m" where "William" was supposed to be. The "beth" where "Elizabeth" was supposed to be. The "na" where "Susanna" was supposed to be, and, the "h" where "Dinah" was supposed to be. The only given name listed was "Kelso" in front the "Blair" for their fifth child and their second son, Hugh Kelso Blair.

The Pelham Town Birth records showed a son being born to Sarah and John on February 25, 1754, the same date the LDS record show John Jr. being born in Donegal.

There are other references to John Blair in Pelham records. He is shown as having held a number of town offices including tithing man in 1745 (in charge of making sure everyone got to church and stayed awake while there), surveyor for the west end in 1757, a member of the committee to provide for a school master in 1757, a fence viewer in 1759, a selectman in 1753 and again in 1756, and constable in 1753.

He was compensated one pound, 18 shillings, and two pence for services in the French and Indian Wars as an enlisted man. He paid three pounds, 14 shillings for Pew Number 13 in the Pelham church.

The marriages of a number of John and Sarah's children are recorded in the Pelham town records.

In 1761 the colony of New York granted 31,500 acres as the Cambridge Patent in Albany County. John Blair was among a number of Pelham citizens to take an interest in the newly developing territory. The family moved from Pelham to the area of Salem/Cambridge, NY. sometime in the 1760s and were probably there by 1763. They show up as founding members of the Presbyterian Church there in 1764.

John was made a Colonel in the Albany County, New York Militia during the Revolutionary War. Col. John is listed in New York State in the Revolution thusly ... page 130 - "Albany Co. Milita, 16th Regiment, Col John Blair, Col. Louis VanWoert."

The original commission of his Colonelcy is in the Fort Ticonderoga Museum in Fort Ticonderoga, New York. It was granted April 4, 1778 and passed the Secretary's office July 4, 1778 signed by then New York Governor, George W. Clinton.

Col. John's sword and a "day book" he is said to have kept are also in the Fort Ticonderoga Museum. The "day book" clearly was an artifact of the Blair family as James Blair (the son of John Jr.) and Orlando Blair (the son of James) have inscribed their names in its pages. A mystery surrounds the account of the passage from Gravesend to Quebec. Who was the author? Could it, as family tradition believed, have been Col. John?

If the Pelham Birth Records are correct, and if that John Blair and Col. Blair are one and the same that would mean that Sarah and John went back and forth between America and England several times. Clearly they were among the first settlers of Pelham in the 1740s. If John Jr. was, in fact, born in Donegal, then they had to go back to England for some reason in the mid-1750s and Sarah had to have given birth to John Jr. while they were there. Where were the other children, who would have been 10, 9, 8, 6, 4, and 2, at the time? Did they go, too?

Then John and Sarah would have had to come back to Pelham and have three more children, then move to Cambridge and have their last two children. And, if the writer of the daybook was Col. John, this means that he went back to England sometime prior to April of 1776 at age 56, that he was somehow commissioned into the British Army, and that he sailed back to Quebec arriving sometime in June of 1776. What happened to him then? And how did he go from the British Army to a Colonelcy in the Albany County, New York Militia?

I don't think the above scenario is very plausible.

I believe it is more likely that John Jr. was born in Pelham. I also think it is likely that someone other than Col. John was the writer of the log. He never would have been elected to the Albany County Committee and to the position of second colonel in May of 1776 if he hadn't been present at the meeting -- and, especially if he was out in the mid-Atlantic at the time with twenty British soliders under his command.

The writer could have been John Jr. who was born in Pelham and who may have been sent to England for a formal education. The writer could also have been a British relative, perhaps a nephew, of Col. John. The book could have belonged to some unrelated British officer and could have somehow fallen into Col. John's hands.

Each time I answer a question I am handed several more. But, the whole experience of genealogy is endlessly fascinating to me.

If only it were possible to travel through time ...

Col. John was obviously into politics as some of the documents presented here indicate. Read, for example, some of the public papers of George Clinton. These hint at Col. Blair's involvement with Ira Allen's effort to get some of the counties in New York to join Vermont. They also suggest that Col. Blair was less than enthusiastic about his military responsibilities.

He died in Cambridge in 1789. It is thought that he is buried in the Turnpike Cemetery south of Cambridge, but no marker remains.
