123 From: 1909 History of Butler County, pg. 611 - Allen McCall was born about 1807 in Butler County, Pennsylvania. He died in 1867. Allen married Martha Turk of Brady Twp., Butler Co., Pa., a daughter of William Turk.
Allen & Martha McCall were members of Muddy Creek Presbyterian Church. His father, Samuel McCall, was one of the organizers of the church in 1803.

The original farm that had belonged to Samuel McCall eventually belonged to Allen. In 1846 the other brothers and sisters relinquished their claims to their brothers, Samuel McCall, Jr. and Allen McCall. Samuel McCall, Jr. died in 1850 leaving the farm to Allen and his descendants.
Two families of his descendants live there today. Mary McCall Stamm and Emily McCall, widow of Howard McCall..

Allen McCall is buried in Muddy Creek U.P. Church Cemetery, Butler County, Pennsylvania as are most of their children.

FURMAN STEWART, a successful farmer of Washington Township, who is carrying on operations on an excellent tract of 120 acres, was born on his present property in Washington Township, Butler County, Pennsylvania, January 27, 1876, and is a son of William C. and Mary (Stanley) Stewart.
William M. Stewart, the grandfather of Furman, married Rebecca Jane McCall, who was a daughter of Samuel McCall, of Donegal Township, and they had the following children: Samuel M., died in young manhood; John, died when young; Nancy Jane, deceased; William C.; Anna Eliza, married Reuben Heckathorn, of Venango County; Wilson McCall married (first) Sarah Day, daughter of John Day, and (second), Mary Johnce, daughter of Hiram Johnce; and Louisa M., maried Joseph Campbell, of Concord Township.
William C. Stewart was married to Mary Stanley, who was a daughter of Andrew Stanley, of Lawrence County. Mr. Stanley married Elizabeth Heckathorn, daughter of John Heckathorn, a cabinet maker, and they had the following children: John, married Barbara C. Fox, daughter of Michael Fox; Sarah, married Peter Young, of Slippery Rock Township, Lawrence County; Elizabeth, married Mark Mencer, of Indiana County; Ann, married Milton L. McCormick, of Slippery Rock Township; Mary; Jane, who married George Smith of Slippery Rock Township, died in Lawrence County, Pennsyvlania; Andrew, married Isabella Wood, daughter of Gidean Wood of Lawrence County; Rachel; and Cephas, who married Elizabeth Hunt, daughter of James Hunt of Lawrence County. The children born to William C. and Mary (Stanley) Stewart were: Elizabeth Jane, residing on the homestead; William A., married Cora A. McCoy, daughter of Lewis McCoy, of Grove City, Mercer County; Lena, married A. M. Christy, of Washington Township; Mary Eva, married L. M. Dickey, of Butler; John S., married Lydia Ross, daughter of John Ross of Cherry Township, and resides at Butler; and Furman. Both William C. Stewart and Andrew Stanley offered their services in their country's defense during the Civil War, but the former was refused on account of defective teeth after having gone as far as Pittsburg. Mr. Stanley served in the struggle, however, and was never wounded, although he had a narrow escape from injury at Pittsburgh Landing, his cap being shot from his head while he was eating breakfast.

143 Her Green Lawn burial record shows her date of birth as 20 June 1850 in Perry County, making her about 63 at death.

144 Hillery Whittington had married Laura Mae McCall, daughter of Samuel James McCall and Dorothy Caroline Curry. Laura Mae was born in Mercer County, Pennsylvania in 1875.

I, Howard Barnhart, received a copy of the Vandalla Historical Society magazine last month. The feature article was on the Courtney contract to cut 35000 acres of timber in Putnam County, West Virginia. The contract was dated 1890. Mr. Courtney lived in Mercer County, Pennsylvania. He was a neighbor of Samuel's, and sure enough Sylvan (Whittington) tells me, this is the reason Samuel went to West Virginia in 1890. He took with him five teams of draft horses and five of his sons. This is the reason his sons became scattered, two in Ohio, one in West Virginia and others returning to Butler 1894/5 when the contract was finished. At the time they were in West Virginia, Dorothy Caroline (Curry) Samuel's wife, was the camp cook at one of the camps, her daughter was a cooks helper, and since Hillery lived in this area, he was a timber cutter. Hence they met and married.

He also showed me a watch he had, given to him by his grandmother, Dorothy Caroline, at age 30 with quite a story, which probably has quite a bit of truth in it. It is an Illinois Railroad watch, made in Springfield, Illinois, and inside the back cover is six RR inspection marks, or time inspection marks placed by a railroad inspector when working for a railroad. Dorothy Caroline was one of six teenagers (she was born 1843) who was canvassing for Abraham Lincoln. (all girls) At one time, they were working in a city, when a carnival or small circus came to location. The girls ask Lincoln for the afternoon and evening off to attend the event. He refused, advising them they must continue their canvassing task, but that he would remember this event. After the election, he came with six of these watches and presented a watch to each girl. Removing the cover, or rear, the name "A Lincoln" is engraved on the back plate just above the serial number, and watch makers name. Just near the rim is the six RR inspection marks. In the center of the back is the initials "E J C" put in by hand. Since Dorothy Caroline's father was David Curry, and she had no brothers with such initials, the watch may have been carried by a nephew. She had a John and a James Curry nephews.

152 I am not certain that this census record is for the same Louis DIEFENBACH. The immigration years are different (1910 shows 1890; 1920 shows 1893), and the ages are off (1910 shows him to be born about 1850, and age 60; 1920 shows brith about 1857 and age 63). The Census Wards are different, too, but the 1910 shows him living with Carl Joseph DIEFENBACH, and the 1920 Census shows Louis and Margaretha living in their own home by themselves. I need to see the actual census images. Family F324
153 I believe Hannah and Eusebius were divorced in late 1900 or early 1901. The 1899 - 1900 has no entries for Hannah, only Eusebius. The 1900 - 1901 edition has entries for Hannah and Eusebius as well as a William Weethee with tow addresses for the three of them. Eusebius is living as a boarder at the same address listed for Charles Garrison. Hannah and William are living at 17 1/2 Levee, she as the homeowner and he as a boarder. WEETHEE, Eusebius Russell (I964)
154 I had been under the impression based on documents from Graumlich Funeral Home for Carl Diefenbach that Violet's last name was LUBAWSKI, but this obit for her sister shows it to be LUSBASKI. Other records (1930 Census for Summit County, OH) show LUBASKI. Source (S25)

162 I'm curious as to why Joseph married in Scioto County when he was born in Jackson County, although realistically, he could have married at a family member's home. He was born in Jackson County, and while I don't yet know where, the county line is only 16 miles away.

164 Immigration date is unclear. 1910 Census shows 1896; 1920 Census shows 1893. The 1930 Census shows that his mother immigrated in 1889. DIEFENBACH, Carl Joseph (I231)
165 In 1837, David Davis bought 100 acres in joint tenancy with brother Samuel Davis on the south side of Muddy Creek. He served as a Justice of the Peace in the early 1850's. He died young, in the mid-1850's.
Occupation: Farmer, farmed 100 acres west of Samuel's farm.

David Davis had two children (Almira and William W.) by his wife, Susannah, whom he married about 1841. Both children died without issue by 1869. He fathered another child in 1838 (David Porter Davis, 1838-1912) by Ann Graham, daughter of Daniel Graham of Brady Twp. David Porter Davis was raised in his maternal grandfather's home but shared the estate of his father together with his father's siblings.

166 In 1850 and 1860, Prudence is living with her parents. In the 1860 census, a child, Malissa Davis, b. 1857, is living with Prudence and her parents (the 1900 census records that she had one child, no longer living). In 1870, she used the surname of Thompson in documents. In the 1870's or 1880's, she probably married Tom Wimer, since in 1889 in a deed (Vol. 105, p. 199), Prudence's surname is Wimer. Tom Wimer was a Civil War veteran , buried in the Davis Cemetery with a military marker along with William Davis. DAVIS, Prudence (I637)
167 In checking the 1930 Census images for Washington County, I found Clarence L FULTON at line 83. His wife's maiden name, according to Mary Fulton's letter, was Claire WILLIAMS. There is a Fred Williams listed at the next dwelling (line 88); Fred is 4 years older than Claire, and they both list their father as coming from Wales. Also, Mary's letter mentions Claire's mother's maiden name was Katharine HESS. Fred's mother Katharine was living with them in 1930. It seems reasonable to assume for the moment that Fred and Claire are brother and sister. WILLIAMS, Fred (I822)

172 In1837, Samuel Davis and his brother, David Davis, purchased 200 acres as tenents in common of property on the south side of Muddy Creek (Butler Co. Recorder of Deeds, Vol K, p. 640). Each brother took half of the property---Samuel the east half and David the west half. The foundations of the houses still exist on North County Club Road in the northeast corner of Moraine State Park. Samuel served as a Justice of the Peace in 1872.

178 James H. McCall and Euphemia L. McCall were married about 1876. They spent most of their married life around Euclid, Pennsylvania. They had seven children. They enjoyed a normal family life for the times. James McCall spent most of his working life in the oil and gas fields of Western Pennsylvania. The last job he worked on was in McKeesport, Pennsylvania. There was a false report of gas being found there.
When the children were old enough to go to work, they either worked on farms or went to the cities to find work. This changed about 1895, when the new railroad went through Euclid. The railroad was bring built to bring iron ore from Lake Erie to the steel mills in Pittsburgh. My father, Loyal B., went to work at 14 years of age riding a horse that pulled a scoop shovel. Today that combination would be called an earth mover.
When the railroad was completed, the other children, with the exception of Mildred Jane and Oscar Lamont, went to Greenville, Pennsylvania. Mable Laverne married a man named Seeley and moved to Greenville to live. The railroad had built repair shops there and Floyd Joe, Roy James and Clair Victor went there to work. Oscar lived in Euclid all of his life working at the general store. Mildred Jane married Dwight Painter and moved to Kane, Pennsylvania. Mildred was a school teacher.
After the Bessemer and Lake Erie railroad was finished, Loyal Bruce worked on railroad construction around Sayre and Emporium, Pennsylvania. Loyal Bruce married Brenda Bessie Seaton in 1904 and moved to Turtle Creek, Pennnsylvania. He went to work on the street cars. Around 1920 he went to work at Columbia Steel and Shafting Company as a millwright. He retired at the age of 72. He died at age 89 in 1970. His wife Brenda died in 196l. My father and mother lived their married life in the Pittsburgh area.
There were two children of this marriage:
Harvey Bruce married Margaret McQuillen: one child.
Aleta Jane married to James E. White: three children
Lorraine, Pamela and James: at home.
All live in the Pittsburgh area.

Robert Seaton married Thelma Williams: three children.
Thelma L. married to Ronald P. Evelhoch: four children of this marriage:
Michele married to Gary Ishler: one child, Derek.
Michael, Patty Joe, and Gregory: at home, all living in the Lewistown, Pennsylvania area.
Valerie A. McCall, Willingboro, New Jersey.
Robert S. McCall II, Berkeley, California.
Thelma W. McCall died in 1956.
Robert S. married Christine E. Crum in 1960.
Written by: Robert S. McCall, son of Loyal Bruce McCall, September 1983.

Note: James Harvey McCall is the son of Euphemia's half-brother, William Wasson McCall. James Harvey McCall is the nephew of Euphemia Louise McCall. Their common ancestor is William John (Little Billy) McCall.

JEMIMA McCALL by Edith (McCall) Young
Jemima McCall's life is interesting, colorful, and confusing. Jemima was the ninth and last child of William John McCall and Jane Wasson McCall. Born December 30, 1843 at Euclid, Butler County, Pennsylvania. Her mother died in May of 1850 after a long illness. Jemima was six years old. Jane (Brannan) Currie, young widow of Francis Currie, was keeping house for William John during his wife's illness. He married her shortly after the death of Jane Wasson McCall. We can only wonder what Jemima's childhood was like. Her next older brother, Andrew Black McCall left home because of the mistreatment he received from his step-mother.

When Jemima was 21 years old she had a daughter, Adaline "Ada" D. McCall, born September 21, 1864. Jemima was not married. She worked for and lived with her brother William Wasson McCall and his wife. Sometime later, she met William H.Vaughn (Hunsinger). William was boarding at a big hotel on Main Street in Parkers Landing. He was called William H. Vaughn when Jemima met him. Also known as "Shorty" Vaughn and "Billy" Vaughn--- Vaughn was his mother's maiden name. Jemima said she knew William H. Vaughn (Hunsinger) for two years and was engaged to him for six months before their marriage on July 1, 1871 (not a legal marriage). On September 7, 1872 their first daughter Emily Leona was born in St. Petersburg, Clarion County, PA. The following August 11, 1873 Minnie Jane was born in Boydstown, Butler County. Jemima did not have her daughter Ada with her and
must have left her in the care of her brother William Wasson McCall and his wife Amy McCandless McCall in Clinton Township, Butler County. On February 22, 1877 Ada died of smallpox at age 12 in Butler County, PA.

The following information was taken from depositions that were given to E. L. Howard, George D. Sidman and C. William Malcom, Special Examiners of the Bureau of Pensions in Washington D.C. These records and others are found in the War and Pension Records at the National Archives, Washington, D.C. After the death of W. H. Hunsinger in 1915, Jemima applied for a widows pension on Hunsinger's Civil War service. The depositions are dated from April through October 1916.

Hunsinger's Civil War service was questionable. Hunsinger served in Co. D, 1st Regiment, Pennsylvania Reserve Cavalry during 1864-1865. Hunsinger was supposed to have served with another unit, the 50th Pennsylvania Infantry previous to the above regiment under the name of Hunsinger--- t his could not be proven. In 1861, when he tried to enlist with the 50th Penna. Infantry he was rejected because he was four inches shorter than the five foot seven that was required. Instead he was supposed to have been hired as a hostler for Colonel B. C. Christ of the 50th and was with this unit for two and a half years. His sister Lucy J. Hunsinger, showed a newspaper article published on the occasion of Hunsinger's 73rd birthday. The article states that he was active in many battles and was wounded in the right hand---none of this could be proven in any war records. Depositions were taken from several veterans of the 50th, but they could not remember him. The family members said that he had come home on furlough and decided not to return, and so deserted. His grandfather Vaughn convinced him to re-enlist under the name of Vaughn and avoid prosecution for desertion. Therefore, the only service record on file is that of the Co. D, 1st Regiment, Penna. Reserve Cavalry. He was wounded in the foot while with this unit. While in the hospital he contracted smallpox and was discharged. Hunsinger did not return home after his discharge and his mother thoiught that he was dead. They did not see or hear from him until 1878 when Jemima took the girls to his family home near Wyalusing and Hunsinger followed her there.

Hunsinger was described as being five foot five inches in height, naturally of stout build, very erect, hair turning gray, more on the right side of his head where he had erysipelas following smallpox. Hair brown, eyes gray, complexion fair. The third finger of his right hand was bent toward the palm and stiffened. He was perceptibly lame from the wound of his right foot. Hunsinger "fished" for tools in the wells and was considered one of the best at that occupation. He also put down wells, was a tool dresser and a teamster. He worked for a contractor named Ely. before meeting Jemima he had made a fortune in speculating the oil fields, but had lost it all. His sister said that she could not name all the places that he had lived in the oil and lumber regions. Jemima stated that the population of the oil towns was transient and the people did not become acquainted. She said she and William moved constantly.

Jemima's marriage to William Vaughn (he was still using this name) could not be established. She gave many conflicting statements. The examiner said that she was of good reputation but unwilling to furnish any information that might be inimical to her interest. Jemima stated that she and William were married on May 9, 1870. No record could be found for this marriage. She said the papers were burned in the fire that destroyed Greese City, Butler County in 1876. In another statement she said they were to be married in July of 1870 but that he wanted to postpone it. Then in the following winter they were married by contract on New Years Day. In a statement to the Bureau of Pensions dated May 4, 1898 and signed by him, William Hunsinger, stated that they were married on January 1, 1872 at Parker City by Squire John Scoot (Scott). The 2 was written over and corrected to an 0. He also stated that he was never married before. Jemima said that Squire Scott had nothing to do with it and that she and Hunsinger had just written up a paper between themselves. She wanted to have a ceremony, but Hunsinger said the contract was just as good--- he always had his own way in everything!

William Hunsinger had been married before and possibly twice before he met Jemima. In a depositioin dated May 29, 1916 from Mrs. Josephine N. B. Donaldson (maiden name Bressler), she stated that she and Hunsinger were married on May 19, 1867 in Flemington, Clinton County by Hugh Devling, J.P. A child was born to her and Hunsinger named Leslie on May 1, 1868. When their son was three months old, Hunsinger deserted them and she did not see him again until shortly after the boy drowned in Delaware Bay in June of 1880. At this meeting he wanted to "make up" with her and said that he wanted to live with her, but she would have to wait until he made arrangements. He later wrote for her to come to Bradford, Pa. She made the trip, paying her own way. When she arrived he told her that he had a housekeeper who had gone to Butler and Pittsburgh to visit relatives. he told Mr. Williams who boarded with them that Josephine was his sister. He at once sold his interests in Bradford and they were to leave the next night. But that night Jemima returned with their two daughters. She had been exposed to smallpox while in Butler and returned a week early. Hunsinger called his wife his sister and told the children to call her "Aunt." There was an awful fight. Josephine said she did not wish to live with him and advised Jemima to stay with him for the sake of the children and told her to say nothing about her. Upon her return to Flemington, she obtained a divorce dated June 29, 1882.

From deposition dated April 6, 1916 - Jemima's account of the meeting with William Hunsinger's wife, Josephine:

"After we had moved back from Emporium and were living on the Comstock Lease, soldier (Hunsinger) suggested that I visit my people, then at my old home in Euclid, about 11 miles from Butler, Pa. My step-mother (Jane Brannan McCall) was living there and my half-sister, now Mary Porter. The last I know of her she was at Sharon, Pa. She is a widow and I do not know her husband's name or business, nor the name of any child. She nor any of the family already named will know anything of soldier's former wife. While I was on that visit, soldier had the woman come to our home near Bradford and I found her there, for I returned sooner than soldier had anticipated. The children and I found that we had been exposed to smallpox and hurried home. It was night when we got home and we walked out from Bradford. He had introduced her to Mr. Williams as his 'sister'. Williams said she came about a week after I had gone. And I had been gone five weeks. After I got home he declared before her face that she was never married to him, but she told me that she was."

Q. You have said that he claimed that he had a divorce. This indicates marriage. When did he tell of that?

A. He told me soon after our marriage. I had been told by someone of a former marriage and I asked him and he said that he had a divorce but that the paper had been burned with a trunk. I think was told by John Long who had been a schoolmate. I have heard that he (Long) went to Ohio and suppose he is dead for I heard years ago of his critical illness. He had a sister Margaret, I think who married Luke Stoughton and her old home was at (West) Sunbury, Butler Co. I do not know what has become of her. After two or three days the woman left out house and soldier went with her but returned the next day. I had told him to not come back. All I can say as to where she came from or where she went is that I think that her baggage was directed to Williamsport. No, I do not like to say that. I can not be at all sure. It was a terrible time and I can not remember. No, I can not remember what he called her, other than Mrs. Vaughn. I can not give any further information as to the identity of the woman or when or where they were married.

Q. What of the story you have told of a marriage contract witnessed by Mr. Scott? Is that true or untrue?

A. Mr. Scott had nothing to do with it. We had been engaged to be married for six months but he kept putting off the marriage. In January, 1871, we agreed to live together with out a ceremony. Soldier wrote an agreement and we both signed it. I had it for years but it has disappeared. We had a record in a Bible, as I have said, but that was burned.

Q. When and where?

A. At Noxen, Pa., 17 or 16 years ago. The paper went long before than. No, I never showed it to the children or anyone.

Q. How was your living together explained to people at Parkers Landing?

A. We went to Mr. Furman's and staid a week, telling them that we were married. When we returned to Parkers Landing people supposed that we had been married while away. The Furmans lived at or above Foxburg, up the railroad from Parkers Landing.

When Emma was born a Dr. Dorn at Petersburg attended me. Minnie was born at Boydstown in the lower oil Region.

We were known by the name "Vaughn" until 1880. Soldier was called "Shorty Vaughn."

I will now say that the chief reason for our ceremony at Ebensburg was my wish to have a certificate with the name "Hunsinger" on it. I had told the children that we had had a certificate which had burned. (End of text taken from deposition.)

Jemima McCall and William Hunsinger were legally married February 25, 1901 by J. D. Parish, Justice of the Peace in Ebensburg, Cambria County, Pennsylvania.

Jemima was not happy about being deceived by Hunsinger's name change. The following deposition was dated April 6, 1916:
Jemima: I am the claimant. I heard yesterday testimony by James Hunsinger and Lucy J. Hunsinger. Regarding what was said about soldier's being known by the name of Vaughn. I will say that in October preceding soldier's first application for pension, he went from where we were living at Coleville, Mckean Co., Pa., to where his parents were living, at Wyalusing, Pa., and brought back his discharge. I knew that he had gone for it and insisted on seeing it. I then learned that he had served as Hunsinger. At first I feared that he had committed some crime but he explained that it was merely his army name.

When we were living near Bradford a daughter of Lewis Vaughn died and the soldier and I went to the funeral. While there I was addressed as "Mrs. Hunsinger" by Mrs. Vaughn.

Q. What did soldier say then?
A. He just laughed it off. I had seen the discharge before then, but it made me think that Hunsinger was his true name.

Q. Where were you living when soldier applied for pension?
A. At Emporium, Pa. He said we must go there for him to apply under the name of Hunsinger. As soon as he had made the application he left me and the children there and went back to Coleville. The children had been put in school at Emporium and soldier wrote their names in their books as Hunsinger. I tore out the leaf for I was sickened by the thought that I had lived nine years as Vaughn and must change to another, but he again wrote their names as Hunsinger, having his way, as usual. At Coleville he met a man named_________Comstock, who hired him to attend five wells at Bradford. I think Comstock was from Buffalo. I insisted on his coming for us and he brought us back to Bradford and we occupied a cottage on the Comstock lease, where we had two, three boarders and could have done well, but he drank hard. Later he went to Emporium and got witnesses for his claim. I think he had located them by correspondence. I think he went to other places, also.

While at Bradford, on the Comstock lease, Wine Oliver, husband of the woman who died, was at our house and I asked him about Soldier's name and he told me the truth. About that time I determined to leave him, as he was drinking so, and I learned from Mr. Oliver the names of soldier's parents. I took the children and went, not withstanding soldier's opposition. I did not think he would ever follow me but he was much attached to the children and he came and we never lived in the western part of the State afterward. The only boarder at Comstock lease that I can name was _____Williams, a portly man, who boarded with us until his wife and children, Christian names not remembered, came.

Soldier's people treated me kindly and they told me more about the change of name. They said that he came home on furlough and being tired of army life did not intend to return, but his people advised him to and Horace and Smith, brothers, lent him money for travel. His grandfather Vaughn told him that if he went back and enlisted he would escape punishment but advised him to take his mother's name of Vaughn. He did so, and was called William or "Billy Vaughn."

While we were living in Coleville and right away after the discharge was got, I talked of the matter with the wife of Benjamin Furman and she told her husband who told me that soldier had not committed any crime but was a good soldier, serving under the name of Billy Vaughn. He said that a better soldier never rode a horse. Mr. Furman told of meeting soldier at some place in the oil country after service and of soldier's telling him, privately to not call him "Vaughn" but Hunsinger.

Q. then, apparently, at that time and that part of the oil country, soldier was known as Hunsinger?
A. Yes, it would seem so. (End of text from deposition)

Jemima must have won her case and collected Widow's Pension for a short while. On July 9, 1917, she wrote a short letter to the Pension Office in Washington D.C. as follows:
"July the 9, 1917 This is to the Pension Department. I want to say that I can't draw any more pension because I am married again. But thanking you for past favors. I was Mrs. William Hunsinger but I am now Mrs. Allen McCall. Prospect, Butler County, Pa."

William Hunsinger died in Dallas, Pa. on October 8, 1915. In her depositions to the Pension Office in 1916, she was still living in Dallas, Pa. She must have returned to Butler County where she married her cousin, Allen McCall of Prospect on May 9, 1917. Allen McCall was a pensioned veteran of the Civil War. Their marriage would not last long as Allen died of his war injuries on November 20, 1919.

It was not long until Jemima married for the third time. She wrote another letter to the Pension Office:
"August 12, 1922 To the Commissioners of Pensions: I was the widow of the late Allen McCall and I have again remarried Nathaniel C. Stevenson, another Civil War Veteran. Thanking you for the past favors, I still remain your friend. Mrs. N. C. Stevenson. 184 2nd Avenue, Butler, Pa. -- Mary Widow, Jemima"

Jemima married Nathaniel Stevenson on July 31, 1922. Jemima was 78 years old and Nathaniel was 74. Nathaniel was a widower with a large family of grown children. He was also a pensioned veteran of the Civil War. Jemima was known to Wasson McCall and Myrtle McClay as 'Aunt Jem.' At the death of Samuel McCall on December 22, 1922, Aunt Jem came to the funeral in Saxonburg from Butler. She was almost 79 years old and had recently married Nathaniel Stevenson. Jemima lived to be 87 years old. At the time of her death she was living with her daughter Minnie Jane Bulford at 11 W. Union Street, Wilkes Barre, Pa. Jemima died November 19, 1931, her husband Nathaniel Stevenson lived until April 25, 1932.

Jemima's daughter, Emily Leona married Peter Frailey and lived at 5 Monroe Street, Endicott, New York. I have no information on her family. Daughter Minnie Jane married William Bulford. They had no children.

"ROCKDALE" - The Wasson Homestead April 1979
The Wasson family lived on the farm now known as "Rockdale" located about two miles (by the road) from the village of Williamson in Peters Township. It was a train stop in the early days of the Southern Branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad. The farm was later owned by the J. E. Baker Company who owned a lot of Property in and around Williamson and operated stone quarries in the area. After the quarries were closed, the Baker Company sold all their property in the area. I believe this property was sold in the late 1940's. "Rockdale" was sold to my grandfather, Elmer C. Meyers, for $4,000.00 (approximately 100 acres). In the 1950's, Bethlehem Steel Company bought all the farms around Williamson and my grandfather sold to them for $28,000.00, I believe. Bethlehem Steel Company is the present owners but the large beautiful stone house, the partly stone barn and all other buildings were destroyed and leveled in 1978. All that remains of the farm are the fields, trees, and the large lilac bushes.

While my grandfather lived there, he got permission to run a water line from a meadow south of the buildings to the barn under the railroad line. It was while he was digging this line that he found a skeleton. After research by county authorities, it was believed to be that of John Wasson, the only early settler found that was killed by the Indians. Mr. Walter Sloan of McConnellsburg was a descendent of Mrs. Wasson and knew the history of the family. Dr. E. B. Hall put the skeleton together, analyzed it, and kept the skeleton. For a while it was at the Chambersburg Hospital but I do not know where it is now. The attached articles relate to theWasson family history and the recovery of the skeleton. by: Marla K. Miller

The discovery of the skeleton prompted research into the life of John Wasson and it was learned he had taken up residence in Peters Township during the period of the French and Indian Wars. The farm was located a few miles from the church/fort of Rev. Capt. John Steel at Church Hill near the present village of Lemasters.

A human skeleton unearthed several months ago on the Elmer C. Meyers farm near Williamson was the subject of a scientific paper scheduled for presentation this afternoon in Philadelphia by Dr. William E. B. Hall, resident pathologist at the Chambersburg Hospital.
The paper"Age of Skeletal Remains", was to be read by Dr. Hall at the annual meeting of the American Association for the advancement of Science being held in Philadelphia's Municipal Auditorium.
Correlating his scientific and medical findings with local history, Dr. Hall concludes that the skeleton was that of John Wasson, an early area pioneer, who was tortured and murdered by raiding Indians. He set the time of Wasson's death at 1750 and age at time of death at 45. The paper also described in detail the multiple body injuries indicated by the skeletal remains of the pioneer showing that he was savagely beaten before he was scalped and killed.
Dr. Hall reported the man was brutally attacked with both a tomahawk and war clubs. Marks on the skull and other indications pointed to a violent death; ribs were fractured by blows to the body and one of the skeleton's arms was broken by twisting..
Pieces of charcoal found in the shallow grave with the skeleton, the paper discloses, have been identified by W. W. Ward, an instructor at the Pennsylvania Forest School at Mont Alto, as American Chestnut, a tree widely used in log cabin building in this area in Colonial times. Two metal buttons found with the skeleton have been identified by Mrs. Lilliam Smith Albert, editor of the National Button Society's publication, as of pre-Revolutionary days.
Wasson was probably left-handed as indicated by greater lengths of the left arm bones, the local pathologist notes in his paper. Examination of the skeleton also disclosed that Wasson had been a short, crippled individual raising the question of the possibility that in his formative years he had been a victim of a crippling disease.
In giving background to his paper, Dr. Hall noted that studies in advanced chemical analysis such as spectrophotometry and flame photometry, examination under the microscope for bone petrographic and histologic form and change and radio-carbon dating were applied and correlated with several other sciences and hobbies to establish dating of the bones, their life age and duration of interment.

197 Joseph and Eliza first appear as a separate household in the 1850 census next to his parents. They first acquire their land (125 acres) in 1867 from Wm. Shaffer (Butler Coutny Record of Deeds, Vol. 89, p.221), although they probably had farmed the land on shares since 1850. The farm appears on the 1858 and 1874 Butler County maps. Occupation: Farmer; farm along Muddy Creek in Franklin Twp.

Joseph and Eliza were parents of 7 children: James Madison Davis, (1851-1922), m. Ellen Shanor (1853-1932); Joseph Edmondson Davis, (1853-1921), m. Harriett Moser (1851-1932); Sarah Jane Davis, (1855-1907), m. Alexander W. McGowan; William Bigler Davis (1857-1922), m. (1) Elizabeth Bach, and (2) Margaret Edna Vensel (1860-1929); Josiah Porter Davis (1862-1891); John Henry Davis (1864-1911), m. Mary Minnie Book (1866-1928); Perry Davis (1866-1883).
