51 As a youth, John was apprenticed to a scribner in Norwich (20 March 1621). He was later an officer of a corporation in England and had some knowledge of the law, according to his contemporary, Roger Williams. John left England from Bristol on 1 December 1630 in the "Lyon." Winthrop recorded the arrival of a Mr. Throckmorton at Boston on 5 February 1631. John moved to Salem, Massachusetts, soon after his arrival.

A George Throckmorton was listed as a Freeman at Salem on 18 May 1631, and this has been thought to have been an error for John. However, John must have had a brother or other near Throckmorton relative, and it is believed this relative was George.

John Throckmorton was a merchant at Salem and had a landing place on the south side of Salem harbor at Tagmutton's Cove, now in Marblehead. He was at Salem on 23 Sep 1635.

In 1638 John's whereabouts were unknown to his father in England, and in 1640 unknown to his father's executors.

On 8 October 1638 he was one of the twelve purchasers of what became Providence, Rhode Island. Roger Williams had purchased this land from Canonicus and Miantonomi. On 22 April 1639 he bought Roger Williams' interest in Chibachuwest (now Prudence Island), which Roger Williams and John Winthrop had bought from the Narragansett sachems. He carried mail for Roger Williams and John Winthrop.

John Throckmorton was Quaker like the other founders of Providence, Rhode Island. He and his wife are alluded to in a 1 July 1639 letter from Rev. Hugh Peters, minister of an established church in Salem to the church at Dorchester, as having had "the great censure passed upon them in this our church." Peters went on to say that they and certain others "wholly refused to hear the church, denying it and all the churches in the Bay to be true churches."

Because of problems like this with the religious authorities in Massachusetts, on 27 July 1640 John Throckmorton and 38 others signed an agreement for a form of government, which became Rhode Island.

In 1641 he had a case in Plymouth Court.

He went with the Hutchinsons and Thomas Cornell to the Dutch colony of New Netherlands (now New York) in 1642. The records of that colony show him trading with South River (now Delaware) and Virginia. On 6 July 1643 John Throckmorton obtained a grant of land for himself and 35 others from Gov. Kieft of Dutch New Amesterdam (now New York). This grant was at Vreeland, now Throgg's Neck (an abbreviation of Throckmorton's Neck), in Westchester County. The group settled there for a short time, but in September they were attacked by Indians. Winthrop wrote that the Indians attacked the English who dwelt under the Dutch, and killed "such of Mr. Throckmorton's and Mr. Cornhill's families as were at home." He added "these people had cast off ordinances and churches, and now at last their own people, and for larger accomodation had subjected themselves to the Dutch and dwelt scatteringly near a mile asunder." Those who escaped this attack returned to Rhode Island, including the Throckmortons.

Back in Rhode Island, John Throckmorton held many offices. In 1652 he was Moderator. In 1661, 1665-68, 1670-73, and 1675 he was Deputy to the Assembly. In 1667 he served on the Town Council. On 30 October of that year, his letter to the Assembly concerning the estate of his daughter Taylor was referred to the Town Council. In 1677 he was Town Treasurer.

On 27 February 1647 John Throckmorton was granted the house and land at Providence that had been Edward Cope's "and that he shall either bring a discharge for the town from the creditors of said Edward Cope, or else pay into the hand of deputies of Providence L15, in wampum at or before May 15th." On 2 September 1650 he was taxed L1, 13s. 4d.

On 27 January 1651 he sold a house and lot to John Sayles, and on 2 June 1651 he was a Townsman at Warwick, Rhode Island. On 26 June 1654 he sold half of the island of Chibauchuwest, or Prudence Island, to Richard Parker.

In 1644 he was listed as a Freeman at Providence. In 1656 he was at Barbados.

On 24 April 1659 he sold 80 acres bounded partly by Benedict Pond to William Carpenter. On 15 June 1675 he sold 140 acres to Daniel Abbott. On 1 September 1679 he was taxed 7s. 6d.

On 20 June 1659 he entered three ankers of strong waters.

In 1664 he was a Newport, Rhode Island. He swore allegiance on 31 May 1666.

On 18 July 1672 he wrote a stern letter to Roger Williams, upbraiding him for proposing a debate with George Fox, the founder of the Quaker movement. He wrote two further letters on the same topic. In one of these letters he warned Williams to provide an armor of proof as Goliah did for "G. Fox is furnished with that armour that thou has no skill to make use of; having also the sword of the spirit to cut down thy airy imaginations."

John Throckmorton died and was buried at Middletown, New Jersey, probably during a visit to one of his children. He took up lands in New Jersey, but did not settle there. However, all of his sons moved there. John made his will on 17 March 1683/4. It was proved on 25 April 1683/4.

In 1687 his ratable estate was 2 house lots and 4 shares of meadow. On 1 September of that year his estate was taxed at 3s.

80 I would be remiss in detailing the history of the Tracy family without some mention of Tego (Teague) Tracy. He is one of the first known Tracy's in Maryland. It appears that he landed about 1680. Tego married Nancy James and received a parcel of land called "Cuckolds Point" [I have no idea about the significance of the title of the property]. This property was in Anne Arundel Co. and believed to be near what is known as Tracy's Landing. In the summer of 1988 our family visited the area. There are no more Tracys in the area but the name has stuck and is being used on a new housing addition. Tego and Nancy attended St. James Parish, My Lady's Maner Church in Anne Arundel Co. This church is located at the northern limit of the town of Tracy's Landing and is still functional. It's graveyard is the site of the grave of the first English settler in Maryland. The above was obtained from a typewritten manuscripted by Edward H. WEST, Tracy Families of Maryland, 1960. In it there is a William Tracy who purchased land from one James Wallace. Text as follows:
James Wallace of Prince Georges County to William Tracy of the same county, a tract of land called the "Brothers Industry" 100 acres, for 700 pounds of Tobacco. 7 Aug 1729
(Y - 182)
William Tracy of Prince Georges County for 3137 pounds of tobacco paid by William Hunt of London, Merchant, I promise to deliver to said William Hunt, 3 cows and calves marked with a cross on the left ear and with a Swallow fork on the right ear and 4 young cattle marked the same. One black mare branded on the shoulder with something like two dots, and one feather bed and furniture, 2 pots and pot hooks, 1 pewter bason and 3 pewter plates.
To have and to hold the hereby bargained premises, and I William Tracy for my self and my heirs will defend William Hunt from all claims whatsoever.
Nevertheless if above William Tracy shall truly pay to William Hunt the sum of 3137 pounds of tobacco by the 20th of March next with casks to contain the same, it to be rolled to some convenient landing on Potomack, then these presents to be void. 14 June 1731.
(Mort. Book Q) There is no way at present to be absolutely sure that this William is "ours" but the time matches. The interesting part is that I can't document the linage for anyone before William. More in subsequent years, I hope.

The STEWARTS of the world are uniting in Scotland, March 31, to Apr 8 (year not given) for the international gathering of the Stewart Society. There will be a seven-day tour of places associated with Mary, Queen of Scots, probably the fost famous Stewart of them all. The Scottish royal family (and later the English) were Stewarts. So was Bonnie Prince Charlie. Stewarts from all over the world are invited regardless of how they spell their names: Stewart, Stuart, or Steuart. On April 8, there will be a Stewart reception at Falkland Place Fifeshire, the Stewart kings hunting lodge.
Unlike many clans, the Stewarts trace their ancestry back to one man - Walter Fitz Alan. He received the hereditary office of Steward of Scotland in the 12th century. Walter, by marrying Margery Bruce, dau. of King Robert the Bruce, founded the Stewart royal line. Even by the 16th century there were a number of rival Stewart families - Lennox, Atholl, Traquair, Bantyne and Ochiltree, and today there are 36 divisions of the Stewarts of Appin.
Mary, Queen of Scots, married her cousin Henry, Lord Darnley who spelled his name Stuart - thus the STUART dynasty. Of 14 Stewart sovereigns, 5 also reigned in England. Two who didn't, Mary Queen of Scots and Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie), still inspire writers and historians.
The Stewart clans helped shape Scotland's history. Visitors can see the room where Mary, Queen of Scots, gave birth to the son who was to unite the crowns by becoming James VI of Scotland and James I of England. This is in Edinburgh, the capital. The place also contains the Scottish crownjewels from the 14th century. During the Cromwellian period, they were hidden in the village church of Kinneff, in Kincardineshire. From the castle, the Royal Mile runs to the Palace of Holyroodhouse associated with the tragic history of the Stewarts. Built by James IV, here are the Audience chamber and private apartments of Mary, Queen of Scots and also the scene of one of the best documented murders in history. The Queen's husband, Lord Darnley, entered her room by a private staircase and stabbed her friend and secretary, David Rizzio. The Queen, pregnant at the time, was held at sword point. The Earl of Ruthven threatened to "cut her into collops" if she stirred.
Bonnie Prince Charlie held brief court here in 1745. At Linlithgow, is the palace of the kings of Scotland. James V and his daughter Mary, were born here. At Traquair House, in Innerliethen, 1,000 years of history lie behind the grey walls. Twenty-seven English and Scottish monarchs have staged or held court there. Bonnie Prince Charlie stopped there in the Jacobite rebellion in 1745. The remarkable Baar Gates have remained closed since. According to legend, the gates will re-open when a Stewart returns to the throne. In the house are a rosary and crucifix of Queen Mary and a cradle used by the infant King James VI. In Sirling is the Church of the Holy Rude, where Mary, Queen of Scots, was crowned in 1543. Of all the royal places, Falkland in Fifeshire is the least altered. The palace, begun by James the II, was a favorite of James V, Mary's father. Before her tragic end, she spent happy days at Falkland. At Blair Castle, Prince Edward stayed in 1745 on his way to Perth.
The Stewart tour route continues via Culloden Moor, the battlefield where the hopes of Prince Charles were finally extingushied in 1746.
The account on the previous page was in the Sunday Oregon newspaper on Jan. 27, 1972. It was sent to Mrs. Betty Marrs by a distant cousin on the ALBERTSON family line, Mrs. Rose Janke of Washington State.
The following was taken from the Sunday newspaper in the Bloomington - Monroe County, Indiana area and written by Mrs. Mona Robinson, (date not given):
The most direct path ran from North and South Carolina through the Cumberland Gap and into Kentucky. From Kentucky 3 paths led into Ohio, 3 into Indiana and 2 into Illinois. Many immigrants to central and northern Indiana came by way of the National Road, while settlers entering southern Indiana from Ohio and Pennsylvania usually arrived by flatboats on the Ohio river. Some were towed up the Wabash to upriver locations. Settlers then built their homes from the wood from the rafts or flatboats, some of which were as big as 20 by 60 feet.
Much Indian travel in Indiana was by waterways since much of the area was marshland - also the rivers and streams here were navigable in both directions.
Later, the settlers also used the rivers to take produce to market in the absence of good roads. Settlers pushing north into Indiana used a number of trails: the Blue River and Buck Creek traces in Harrison county, the Red Banks trail from Henderson, Ky., the Rome trail in Perry county, and the Yellow Banks trail from Rockport. Some of these trails met the Buffalo Trace.
The Buffalo Trace is a very important trail for researchers in our area of Indiana, since two thirds of the early settlers in our part of the state used this trail. Its direct connection with the Warrior's path through Kentucky made it important at the time, and in the 1804 treaty line between General William Henry Harrison and the Indians was based on the location of this trail.

83 Isaac served in the 14th Illinois Volunteer Infantry as a Private.
He enlisted in the 14th Illinois Volunteers on February 27, 1862
and joined the unit just after the Battle of Fort Donelson. He was
with the unit in their march to and during the battle at Pittsburg
Landing (Shiloh). His unit was in Grant's Army that sailed up
(southward) the Tennessee River in February 1862. Fort Donelson
fell Feb. 1862 and the Army moved on to Savannah and eventually to
Pittsburg Landing. Isaac was taken ill sometime in early April
1862 after standing guard in the raining for 12 hours without
relief and was taken to a Hospital boat named the City of Memphis.
The City of Memphis transported him to the hospital in Cincinnati,
Ohio. He arrived at Camp Dennison, Ohio on May 2, 1862 and was
furloughed May 5, 1862. He returned to his unit in late July or
early August 1862 while his unit was below Memphis, Tennessee. In
November he was again taken ill and he was transported to a
convalescent camp in LaGrange TN and then on to another hospital
in Memphis. He was discharged from the Army January 24, 1863 at
Memphis (Fort Pickering). He made his way back to Junction City
(then know as Wolf's Station) upon his discharge. Here, he
enlisted in Company C, 160th Ohio Infantry as a Corporal on May 2,
1864. He was sent to Winchester, Virginia where he suffered sun
stroke and was again hospitalized and subsequently discharge from
the Union Army on September 7, 1864. Then on September 27, 1864 he
was drafted into Co. C 62nd Ohio Vol. Inf. and he suffered partial
sun stroke near Richmond, Virginia. He was discharged for the last
time June 20, 1865.

Life Sketches from Records, Historical and Tradition

In tracing our branch of the Tanner family the writer has not been able to go any further back than to the days and life of Lewis Tanner, who settled in Mecklinburg County, Virginia, not far from 1730 or 1740, or something near one-hundred-and-sixty-years ago. It is shown by the records that his deed for his homestead was recorded in 1750, and this property is still held by his continuous descendants, at the present time owned by Melville Tanner, of Lacross, Mecklinburg County, Virginia: The name of Lewis Tanner's wife before marriage was Margaret Haskins, she having a brother named Creed, and these two names -- Haskins and Creed, are often found in the later families, following Lewis and Margaret Tanner. To this patriarchal pair were born two sons, named Thomas and Josiah. Thomas married Mollie Evans, and they had three sons, named Thomas, Ludwell and David. This Thomas was the grandfather of Wm. M. Tanner, and Ludwell was the grandfather of Mary H. Tanner, Wm. M. Tanner's wife. See T.T.G's. p.45. This family I have had the pleasure of visiting, and have great respect for them as relatives, and enjoy their kind friendship.

Josiah Tanner, second son of Lewis Tanner, as given by tradition, was seventeen years old when he married Martha Wootten, December 1st, 1771. It is not known at this time whether or not Josiah Tanner had any sisters. After their marriage they continued in Mecklinburg County, Virginia, about eight years; they then moved to and located in South Carolina in the year 1779, on the French Broad River, near Cherokee Ford. In and around this part of the country at this time was a bitter contest between the citizens, and S. C. line and partisan soldiers on the one side, and British and Tories on the other. It will be in order now to take up the application for pension of Martha (Tanner) Lemasters and the evidence offered for the establishing of her claim to pension.

These pension papers furnish an almost complete life history of Josiah Tanner from the time of his marriage until his death. These papers are from the Pension Department at Washington, and from the Secretary of State's office, Columbia, South Carolina. This application for pension was made before the Probate Judge of Johnson County, Indiana, August 14th, 1843, and sets forth as follows: That she was 87 years old and that she was married to Josiah Tanner, in Mecklinburg County, Virginia, December 1st, 1771, that her said husband was a Lieutenant in Capt. Cradra McBee's Company of Colonel Williams' Regiment, (Note, afterward Colonel Robuck's Regiment, after Battle of King's Mountain) of South Carolina troops, in the Revolutionary War; that he left home in May, 1780, wounded in the arm at the battle of King's Mountain in October of that year; came home to get his wound cured, returned to the army in the spring Of 1781, and returned finally to his home in the fall of that year -- having been in the service, including the time he was at home on account of his wound, about eighteen months. That he was a pensioner until 1796, while in South Carolina. On the reports of the Comptroller General of South Carolina, one of them dated at Columbia, S. C., October 3rd, 1843, to the effect that on October 5th, 1785, a warrant was issued for the payment of a horse lost in the service for £21. 8s. 6d and £1. 9s. 11d, interest; and on December 9, 1785, another warrant for £76. 3s. 6d; and interest for £5. 6s. 7d for 237 days duty, from June 18, 1780, to July 1st, 1781, "is a Lieutenant of horse" in Capt. Cradra McBee's Company, Colonel Robuck's Regiment of the South Carolina line. Sally Crittenden, further testified, August 14th, 1843, that she was a daughter of Josiah Tanner; that she had often heard her father and mother relate that they were married at the home of a Colonel Rumford, in Mecklinburg County, Virginia, by the Rev. Parson Sample, whom she had seen and heard preach often. That she remembers well of her father going with a letter from General Morgan to Colonel Washington at Charlottesville, North Carolina, to come and meet him at the Cow Pens, and that he (her father) came by home and told her mother where he was going and what for. Mrs. Crittenden further testified that she remembered well, that when her father came home with his wounded "right arm" he had no clothes for a change to put on, for the Tories had plundered their house while he was away. Mrs. Crittenden also testified that she had heard her parents say, that they had no license for their marriage, but that the vows were published three times in the church, (and marriage as before stated.)

The Comptroller General of South Carolina in February, 1844, further stated, that Josiah Tanner received his pension for twelve years from the General Government; that it was necessary his papers should be authenticated annually, and that he should receive his money in Charleston, which was then the location of the Commissioner of Pensions for the General Government. It will be seen in Martha Lemaster's application for pension that Josiah Tanner was a pensioner until 1796, while in South Carolina.

The above two statements in regard to Josiah Tanner's pension, will verify the tradition of the date of his emigrating to Kentucky as stated in the T.T.G.'s.

This tradition came from my mother Mary (Tanner) Tracy and her declaration was, "I was almost seven years old when we left South Carolina." This indicates that they arrived in Kentucky in the fall of that year, she being seven years old in December following, making it the year 1796.

Another bit of tradition may be worth relating, happening in the mountains after leaving South Carolina; this also from my mother. She says: "I was riding down the mountain on a horse behind my brother, the horse fell and threw both of us, and I started to fall over the side of the mountain, my father being in sight, but too far off to be of any assistance. Turned his back on me, not wanting to see me dashed to death on the rocks below; but luckily I caught hold of a little bush and held on with a scream until assistance arrived and lifted me from my perilous situation."

Again from mother, she says: "after my father was well of the woundin his elbow it was always very stiff in the joint, so much so that he had a knife made with a blade eighteen inches long to use while eating, that he might reach his mouth with that arm."

Josiah Tanner now stands before us a patriot of Revolutionary times, of glorious deeds; he had done his work for his country; peace in hand, he turns his attention to his increasing family, their wants are many, his services for his country are unpaid. After dearly bought peace had come, we find him looking after his dues from his country, he is measurably helpless for making a living by his manual labor. His efforts for his dues were successful.

In 1785, five years after being disabled, he received pay for horse lost in action and payment for services while in the army; also at this time he was further awarded by being awarded a pension to help him along with his infirmity. There is no other history or tradition to write, for the ten or eleven years, when we find him on his way over the mountains to the "Dark and Bloody Ground"; -- the wilderness of Kentucky, and here he tarried for the remainder of his year, where he had a dry goods and grocery business at Bethlehem on the Ohio River. Here for a few years he watched his children grow up to men and women (at least the greater part), choosing their life mates and passing to their own homes.

At this time the bugle sounded "tattoo" and "lights out." This great lover of his country passed to the great beyond, November 1st., 1807. Love to his memory. March 6, 1907. M. J. TRACY.

COLUMBIA, Nov. 13, 1903. Mr. Mathew J. Tracy,
Whiteland, Ind.
Dear Sir.-I am sending you, enclosed herein, a certificate of the service of your grandfather, Josiah Tanner, in the Revo- lutionary War. I regret, after thorough search, I am unable to find the record of Nathaniel Tracy. I find evidence of the service of his brother, James Tracy. As you understand these records are by no means complete, being compiled from Loose Paper, Stub-Books, Revolutionary Pay Rolls, Indents, Etc., over which, for many years, no special care or attempt at preservation has been had.
The two dollars you sent will be sufficient pay for the search required, but $1.07, which the law provides for at- taching the seal to any paper, you should remit.
If I can serve you further I will take pleasure in doing so.
Very truly yours,
TANNER, Josiah (I2600)

90 Mary Breadlove was born after 1805 and before 1810. Her father was a Breadlove who reached majority sometime in between the above dates, but he evidently died before the 1810 Census. I can find no record of the marriage between Mary's mother and father in the accompanying counties in NC. That is not to say that they were not married, but that I have not solved this mystery yet. Mary's mother was known as the widow Breadlove upon moving to Indiana. BREEDLOVE, Mary (I1653)
91 Mr. Ron Rossi feels that there is another genration between Lewis Tanner and Josiah. The dates would lead to that supposition. I have not entered that generation as M.J. Tracy does not included it. To date, I have not seen solid evidence to the contrary of Ron's position. However, I have chosen to follow the line of Mathew Tracy as it is slightly more authoritative. I think that time will probably prove Ron Rossi correct. Josiah was a disabled veteran of the Revolutionary war. His right elbow was hit by a musket ball and he was out of action for approximately six months. He reentered the war in time for the final push in SC at Cowpens which preceded Yorktown by a few days. This is all documented in M.J. Tracy's work on the Tracy-Tanner Families. HASKINS, Margaret (I2605)

Phillip Clem is also shown in the IGI as the father of Phillip Clem, b 1754, NY. I have talked with the person who entered this file in the IGI and she states that this Phillip Clem was born in 1723 in NY and that the Clem [Klum] family of this Phillip came to America with the original Palatines. I have gone over lists of immigrants in the first immigration and could not find a record of that family's arrival. I now doubt the connection because James Clem states that his grandfather knew Phillip and that he was from the old country. Phillip evidently settled in what was to become Henry County, Kentucky shortly after his arrival, again according to James Clem. The region was part of Virginia at the time and was Indian country. One would imagine that life was difficult to say the least as this area was not settled until the late 18th century. I have only one problem with the history of Phillip Clem as listed here. If Phillip immigrated in 1741 or 1747 he would have to have been of majority or close to it. That would make his birth date circa 1720-30. He fathered his last child in 1794. I know that it is possible for a person to produce offspring relatively late in life but this is very late. Even if he was born in 1730 he would have been 64 years old at the birth of the last child. The death of John W. Clem in 1829 would correspond to a large span of reproduction, if John had a normal life span. According to Salts, Phillip Clem appears in a "List of Men Living in Lower District Dunsmore County Under the Command of Joseph Bowman" in "Revolutionary War Records, Virginia" published by Dr. Gaius Brumbaugh. Again Salts, there is also in Harrison County, Virginia, in the 1785 list, a Phillip Clem, with six white souls. Harrison County, Virginia was formed in 1784 and West Virginia was created in 1863. Harrison County, Virginia stretched about the entire width of Ohio from Henry County, Kentucky. My assumption is that Phillip probably moved west after 1785 but before 1792 which is the year that Kentucky was formed.

96 Richard was the eldest son. On 16 October 1650 his father bought him a farm in Gravesend from George Holmes, then on 20 October sold it again to Richard Clough and Thomas Doxy as proxies.

On 18 July 1663 Dirck Stilleweel (a Dutch form of Richard Stillwell) and Annekin Booms were witnesses at the baptism of Pieter, son of Pieter Jansen and Annetie Jans.

On 9 November 1663 Richard Stillwell bought a farm in Gravesend from William Lawrence. Since Richard's first child, John, was born in 1664, it seems he purchased this farm on the occasion of his marriage.

In 1679 he was one of the guardians appointed by his sister Alice's husband, Samuel Holmes.

In 1688 Richard Stillwell was one of the Justices of the Court of Sessions in Richmond County. His brother Thomas was Sheriff. Richard died shortly afterwards. Administration of his estate was granted to his chief creditor, William de Meyer. An inventory of his estate shows a value of £94, 19s, 3p. 
STILLWELL, Richard (I2312)
97 Samuel Wooten served as a private in Capt. Charles Fleming's Co., 7th Va. Regiment, which was also designated as the 3rd Regiment. This unit was commanded successively by: Colonel Alex. McClenachan, Lt.Col. Holt Richeson, and Colonel William Heth. He enlisted 2/11/1778 for one year and transferred Nov 1778 to Capt Henry Young's Co., 5th Va Regiment, commanded by Col. Willliam Russell. Again, he enlisted for the duration 1/1/1779. His name appears on the muster rolls 11/1/1779 dated near Morristown Dec 9th 1779.
