7409 When Alma Reinhardt was a young girl, it was her responsibility to gather and dry Mullen leaves for the pipe of her grandmother, Sarah Peters, who's hands were crippled. Sarah could often be found sitting in her rocking chair on the front porch, and smoking her pipe.

7412 When he had nearly completed his medical course he became ill and never finished. He practised without a license a short time at Teeterville, Ontario, as there was no doctor there. Laughlen, James Wilson (I59)
7413 When he was a young man he left home and his family never heard from him afterwards. There were rumors that he lived in Minnesota; also that he lived in Grand Forks, North Dakota, USA, but no definite information about him. He was single when he disappeared. Dr. E. Ross Laughlin.

I found him in Oregon when he signed up for World War I and in Washington where he died. He is listed as single on the 1930 census

7414 When he was about 3 years old his widowed mother emigrated from Ontario to Galdwin, Michigan, USA. He and his brother Fred became wards of the State and were place in the Michigan State School May 14 1890. McLaughlin, Levi (I16928)

7417 When James married, his mother did not approve of Kate and told him to go away and never come home again. He lived near Kingston for a while, then moved to a Farm a few miles north of Orillia, Simcoe, Ontario, Canada. While felling trees in the woods, one fell upon him, breaking his leg. He died from his injuries. Lake, James (I5049)
7418 When John died Sophy married Captain John Walden Myers who was a rich man. They were married by a minister who did not belong to the State English Church so the marriage was not recognized as legal by the government. When John Myers died she was not able to get her share of the property of her Husband. It was reported by Dr. E. Ross Laughlin that when Myers died she was willed a Farm on the 3rd Concession, Sidney, near Belleville, but donated it to her daughter Sophia who married John Billings Hoffnel, Sophy (I1306)
7419 When Lester McKay died he did not have a will and his brother walked in and took everything including the house. His Wife was left with only old age pension to live on. Since women had no rights back in the early 1950 and 60's this easily happened. It looks like they never married as Luella couldn't get a divorce from John Henry. Since there was no common law rights, she didn't have a chance. They lived as Husband and Wife, she used his last name and are buried together. McKay, Lester Hugh (I69)
7420 When my Grandfather (Julian McShane) was 13, his appendix burst and he legally died. His surgeon was quite accomplished and saved his life. His surgeon was his future Father-in-law, Jennie McGarry's Father. And, of course, the rest is history!

7423 When the American Revolutionary War broke out his sympathies were with the Mother Country so he joined the British Forces and fought with them. When the war was ended the Loyalist had their lands confiscated and were treated as traitors. John was married before he emigrated to Upper Canada. He and his first Wife came to Québec, Canada once or twice and apparently returned to New York, USA for some unknown reason. When he emigrated to Upper Canada in the 1780's he was a widower with two daughters, Eve and Catherine. He emigrated to Ernestown, Lennox, Ontario, Canada, Upper Canada and given Crown land by drawing lots.

He was married on Nov 22, 1787 to Sophy Hoffnel. At the time of marriage, he was described as a widower living on the 1st Concession Adolphustown in the 4th Township of Cataraque. He was married in the presence of Hannah Davy. Sophy Hoffnagel was living on the 4th Concession, Cataraqui Township at the time of marriage.

Their marriage was the first by Reverend John Langhorn, Anglican Clergy in that district. John received a grant of land from British Government near Bath, Ernestown, Lennox, Ontario, Canada. John Davy was a soldier in the Royal Regiment of New York, USA. He was on the provisional list of the Land Board of Mecklenberg, Upper Canada in 1786, so he emigrated to Upper Canada before that time.

John and Sophy witnessed the marriages of:
Daniel Morden and Elizabeth Lawson, 24 Dec 1788
John Smith and Sarah Fisher, 23 Dec 1800
A Cemetery transcription says that John Davy died 30 May 1808 age 59 years.

After his death his Wife Sophy Hoffnagel married Captain John Walden Myers in August 1817. They lived in Belleville, Hastings, Ontario, Canada and owned the first brick house in Belleville, which was then called by another name. When Captain Myers died the widow did not receive all his property. She was willed a Farm on the 3rd Concession Sidny Township about 9 miles from Belleville.

John Davy made a will dated May 17, 1808 and mentioned all his children in the will. They total 13. When John died he had willed east half of Lot 10 Ernestown, Lennox, Ontario, Canada to his son Peter Davy. He willed the West half of Lot 10 to his son John including his gristmill. He willed his son Benjamin 100 Acres in Camden Township. He willed his son George 100 Acres on the 6th Concession of Ernestown, Lennox, Ontario, Canada. He willed his Wife and daughters, Eve, Margaret, Sophia and Elizabeth an equal share of his goods and chattels.

In his will he did not say he had a son William and did not mention that he expected another child, but it is claimed he had a son William born after his death.

7427 While trying to find information on my grandmother's family, I came across your web site. Frederick Noakes was my maternal grandmother's brother. What I was trying to find was other siblings of my grandmother, Lillian Elizabeth Alice Noakes, born 1881 in Tunbridge Wells, England. I know that grandmother and her brother Fred came to the Napanee area when my grandmother was around 19 or 20. I was trying to locate their mother and Father's names and the mother's maiden name. At least, with your information, I know great uncle Fred's Wife's name. Good luck with your search-It is great fun, isn't it? Elizabeth Ferguson wilabet @sympatico. ca Noakes, Frederick G. (I3350)

Pardon the liberty I have taken in embracing the opportunity this day affords to acquaint you with my sincere passion. I have long admired your gentle and amusing manners and your engaging conversation and find my heart quite subdued. My destiny is totally in your power, either to be most happy or most miserable. Do not keep me in suspense any longer, but frankly say if you can love me in return and if you can favour me with your company, we may perhaps appoint the time that will unite us in love and happiness

I remain dear madam Your sincere friend and true, John C Michell

7447 Wife of Founding Father Benjamin Franklin

Deborah Read Franklin played an important role in the founding of the United States simply by taking on the management of her family businesses. By so doing, she allowed her husband, founding father Benjamin Franklin, the opportunity to actively pursue his role in state and national politics in the decades before and after the American Revolution.

Deborah Read was born about 1707 to John Read, a British carpenter, and his wife Sarah White Read. Whether Deborah was born while her parents still lived in England, or after they moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is uncertain. The second of seven children, Read received little formal education. Almost nothing else is known about her childhood.

Benjamin Franklin was born on January 17, 1706, in Boston, Massachusetts. He was one of seventeen children born to Josiah Franklin, a soap maker. Josiah wanted Benjamin to enter the clergy, but could not afford to send him to school. Consequently, when Benjamin was 12, he became an apprentice for his brother James who was a printer.

In 1723, Benjamin ran away and eventually ended up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he met Deborah Read. While in Philadelphia, Franklin became a boarder in the Read household, and soon found work as an apprentice printer.

Franklin became an excellent printer, and the governor of Pennsylvania asked him to go to London to purchase font types and printing supplies. In exchange for his services, the governor promised to help Franklin start his own printing business.

In the meantime, Franklin and Deborah had grown very close, and she had begun to suggest they should get married. He was unsure what to do, and left for England. Unfortunately, the governor had lied, and Franklin was forced to work in London for several months.

Franklin rarely wrote while he was gone, and in 1725 Deborah Read's mother persuaded her to marry John Rogers, a local potter, but the unhappy union soon ended. There were rumors that Rogers already had a wife in England.

Upon his return to Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin borrowed money and started his own printing business. He worked extremely hard and soon received government printing contracts. His business was very successful, and he became well known throughout Philadelphia.

In 1729, Franklin bought the Pennsylvania Gazette and turned it into the most successful newspaper in the colonies. His newspaper contained the very first political cartoons.

Franklin asked Deborah to marry him, but she said that a new marriage was out of the question as long as there was any chance that John Rogers might reappear - they could have been charged with bigamy. On September 1, 1730, the couple entered into a common law marriage, agreeing to live together as husband and wife without formal approval by religious or civil authorities.

In 1733, Franklin began to print Poor Richard's Almanac. While most almanacs of the time contained weather reports and other predictions, his Almanac contained lively writing, interesting facts, and creative sayings - many which are still used today. "A penny saved is a penny earned" came from this almanac.

Deborah Franklin gave birth to two children. Their first child, a boy, named Francis Folger Franklin died in 1736 at age four of smallpox, a contagious disease that causes fever, vomiting and skin eruptions. Their daughter Sarah was born in 1743.

Sarah married Richard Bache on October 29, 1767, and moved into her parents' recently completed house. The Baches lived there for twenty-five years and raised their seven children there, enjoying the generosity of her parents. Sarah served as housekeeper after her mother died, and later was hostess and caregiver for her father when he returned from France in 1785.

Deborah Franklin did not share many of Benjamin Franklin's intellectual, scientific, or political interests, and, unlike him, she was uncomfortable in social situations. She enjoyed being a homemaker and had a good head for business. While her husband ran their printing business, she was in charge of the couple's book and stationery shop as well as a general store.

When Franklin began his frequent absences on government business, Deborah managed their businesses and sold such items as soap, medicines, chocolate, tea, cloth, feathers and lottery tickets.

When Franklin spent the years of 1757 to 1762 and 1764 to 1775 in Europe as a representative of the government of Pennsylvania, Deborah Franklin stayed in Philadelphia. She had no wish to cross the ocean. Some say she feared that her plain appearance and simple ways would embarrass her husband in front of his elegant European companions.

By 1757, Benjamin Franklin, next to George Washington possibly the most famous 18th-century American, had made a small fortune, had established the Poor Richard's Almanac as an oracle on how to get ahead in the world, and had become widely known in European scientific circles for his reports about his electrical experiments and theories.

Furthermore, he was then just beginning a long career as a politician, during which he would be chief spokesman for the British colonies in their debates with the king's ministers about self-government.

In 1757, Franklin was sent to England to petition the king for the right to levy taxes. He remained in England for the next five years, as the representative of the American colonies. Franklin returned to England in 1764 as an agent of Pennsylvania, to negotiate a new charter, and remained until 1775.

In 1765, the British government, in an effort to raise money to pay off its war debts, imposed the Stamp Act on the American colonists, forcing them to pay a tax on each paper item they used. On September 17, 1765, a number of Philadelphia citizens threatened to attack Deborah Franklin's house, protesting that her politician husband had not fought against the Stamp Act vigorously enough.

Franklin was in England. With the help of some armed relatives, she told the crowd she would not allow herself to be forced from her own home. Soon the angry mob retreated, leaving the house in peace.

Because of the great assistance Deborah provided him, Benjamin Franklin had the luxury of retiring from business early and devoting himself to a career in public life. But it also allowed him to spend many years in Europe without her. The couple sent frequent letters back and forth that mostly focused on personal matters. Only in their later years did the letters become quite brief and businesslike, reflecting their growing lack of closeness.

Around 1773, Deborah began experiencing health problems. Franklin was in England, trying to keep peace between America and England, and he was unable to return to the colonies. In 1774, he wrote her a letter in which, for the first time, he used the tender term "my dear Love," but she was too ill to respond or even acknowledge it.

Her fear of ocean voyages had prevented Debprah from traveling with her husband, so she spent many years alone. She died unexpectedly of a stroke on December 19, 1774 in Philadelphia, while Franklin was in England.

Three months later, Benjamin Franklin returned to America. He wrote to a friend about his wife of many years:

“ I have lately lost my old and faithful Companion; and I every day become more sensible of the greatness of that Loss; which cannot now be repaired.
In 1775, with war seemingly inevitable, Franklin returned to America. Shortly thereafter, he was made a member of the Second Continental Congress and helped draft the Declaration of Independence.

He would have a hand in securing financial and military aid from France during the American Revolution, the negotiation of the treaty by which Great Britain recognized its former 13 colonies as a sovereign nation, and framing the Constitution, which for more than two centuries has been the fundamental law of the United States of America.

Benjamin Franklin was bedridden during the final year of his life, escaping severe pain only by the use of opium, and he died on April 17, 1790, at age 84. He was buried beside Deborah at Christ Church Cemetery in Philadelphia.
