    Obituary.

    In the death of Mr. Wesley Eaton the community of Hespeler loses a valued and highly esteemed citizen.

    He was born in Flamboro township, where Carlisle stands, on May 1st, 1838. Fifteen years later with his parents, brothers and sisters, moved into the farm adjoining the corporation. In 1871 he married Mary Ann Master and took up residence on part of the homestead. She died in 1890, leaving a sorrowing husband and eight children. Twelve years before his death he married Mrs. McCready of Hespeler, who was spared to be a helpmate in time of health and watched over him with tender care in his last days.

    Mr. Eaton took no part in public affairs, was looked upon as an excellent farmer, and as a neighbor he was as such in its fullest term, and will be missed by the community. He leaves two brothers, Nelson and Enoch of Hespeler, and four sisters, Mrs. John Washborn, Hespler; Mrs. John Cober, Brussels; Mrs. Joseph Gingrich, of Caledonia; and Mrs. Amos Souder, Waterloo Township. Children survive from first marriage, Herbert, Morris and Stanley, at home: Mrs. John Brickel (Violet), Mrs. Henry Freybourne (Ella), Mrs. John Harris (Alice), of Hespeler.

    Funeral will take place at his late residence, Hespeler cemetery, conducted by the A.O.?.F.W. of which order he was a member.

    • Residence: 1826, Carlisle, Wentworth, Ontario, Canada

    Notes:

    It was ... John Eaton who pioneered in the Carlisle area. On first coming to Upper Canada in 1796, he settled near Brantford A few years later, he moved to Saltfleet where his wife died. On one occasion during his wife's illness, he had gone in search of the doctor, and had been forced to seek shelter for the night in the home of Lavinus Van Duzen. There he met Catherine Van Duzen who was a first cousin of Laura Secord. In 1803, after his wife's death, John married Catherine and settled for a time in Saltfleet Township.

    During the War of 1812, John enlisted in the local regiment. Before the Battle of Stoney Creek, he was chosen to go to Burlington Heights to guide the troops who came from Toronto to assist at the Battle. He also fought with distinction in this famous battle. The Eaton home near the Burlington beach strip became headquarters for British troops, and his horses and oxen were used for transporting army supplies. Like many settlers who lived in this area during the War, John Eaton suffered loss of and damage to his property, and had to go through lengthy procedures to claim compensation from the government. His total loss is recorded as 17 pounds, 5 shillings.

    It is believed that John and Catherine Eaton moved to Carlisle in 1826, although the sale of their land was not registered until 1828. John Eaton purchased two 200- acre lots at the junction of Carlisle and Centre Roads, paying 300 pounds for each lot. The Eatons had eleven children, and to accommodate this large family, they built a 13 -room house on Carlisle Road.

    At first, the village that grew up al the crossroads was called Eaton, or Eatonville. Then it was briefly called Centreville. When the post office was established in 1853, the village name was changed once again to Carlisle, after a town on the border between England and Scotland, a compromise between the settlers from both parts of the British Isles.

    The story is told that when the Eatons moved to Carlisle from Stoney Creek, they brought some pigs which were allowed to forage in the woods. Eventually, the pigs disappeared, and it was believed that they had fallen prey to wolves or bears. However, when John Eaton visited Stoney Creek, he discovered that his pigs had returned to their old home.

    Like many other settlers, the Eatons were loyal Methodists. One room in their home was used as a meeting place for religious services conducted by local preachers. John Eaton himself was one such lay preacher, well -known for always making his rounds faithfully, in spite of winter blizzards.

    Many camp meetings were held in the lovely pine forest on the large Eaton property. Each family brought a tent, or even lumber to erect a temporary shelter. Three services of prayer and praise were held each day in a large tent. Singing was an important part of Methodist worship. There is a story that, one Sunday evening, when the congregation was singing "Nearer My God To Thee", a strong clear male voice at the back took over the lead. At the end of the hymn, the preacher asked the unknown singer to come forward, but he was nowhere to be found He had simply disappeared into the woods, and became known as "the Mystery Man ".

    John and Catherine Eaton were also instrumental in having the first church established in Carlisle. Members of the church began to plan a cemetery in 1836. John Eaton was very ill at the time, and it was expected that his would be the first burial there. However, another local resident, Alexander Kerr, was killed by a falling tree, so he became the first occupant of the new cemetery.

    John died in 1837 when he was 64, but Catherine lived until she was 89. Both are buried in the cemetery of Carlisle United Church. Some of their children married into the Crooker, Tansley, Sutton, Rasberry and Griffin families There are still descendants of John and Catherine living in the Carlisle area.

    On July 17th, 1926, more than 2,000 descendants of this couple gathered at the Eaton homestead for the Eaten- Van Duzen (also spelled Vanduzen, Vandusen, Van Dusen or Van Duzer) Reunion. A very busy day was planned. There was a picnic, speeches prayer, sports events and music. In the afternoon, 32 children were baptized. Of special interest to all was a display of a cabinet and a chest which had been brought to North America by Francis Eaton when he arrived on the Mayflower.

    At Carlisle cemetery, lines of purple ribbon led from the Founders' monument to the graves of all direct descents buried there. At a special ceremony, a bronze plaque was unveiled in honour of John and Catherine Eaton.

    In the evening, guests gathered at the Tudor Eaton farm on Centre Road near Progression Road. A stage had been built for the occasion so that everyone could enjoy the entertainment. The final event of the day was a gathering around a huge bonfire of pine roots.

    It was a wonderful way to celebrate this pioneer family's 100 years in Carlisle. In 1926, it was estimated that John and Catherine Eaton had 2,622 descendants.

    One of their descendants is the Rev. Bruce Eaton, son of Lillian and Fawcett Eaton. Raised in Carlisle, he has spent many years in India, Bangladesh, Zaire, Sudan, Somalia, Togo and Ethiopia drilling water wells for thirsty people. He learned his skills while serving in India, and invented a bamboo filter for wells in sandy areas. His talents have been in great demand by churches of many denominations. John and Catherine would be proud of him.

    HISTORICAL INTRODUCTION TO CARLISLE

    Encouraged by George Baker's little settlement at Centre Road and the 5th concession (known as Bakersville), John Eaton and his wife, Catherine VanDuzen had by 1826 acquired 400 acres of land on the southwest side of Centre Road between the 8th. and 19th concessions. This land was heavily wooded, and it took 40 years to clear it.

    Other families soon moved into the area) and the settlement that grew up at Centre Road and the 9th concession became first known as Eaton, or Eatonville. The village developed into a busy place, for it was on one of the main thoroughfares between Hamilton and Guelph. At one time, Carlisle was known as a favourite watering spot for travellers, having four hotels.

    One of the early storekeepers at this intersection was Talbert Carey. His store, on the southeast corner, was a busy place on Friday nights. That was when farmers would bring him butter, eggs, chickens, apples and onions to trade for other foods The Carey establishment also carried all sorts of dry goods -- boots, shoes, fur coats, hats, lamps and even chimneys, This store was later operated by owners named Mills, Tweedle and Gray. It is still the centre of village commerce.

    On the opposite corner, where the TD bank stands today, was a grocery store operated by Alfred Tansley Later owners here were Mr. Leonard and Mr. Johnson. The post office, in the same building, was for many years operated by Gusty Koella, a lady from Switzerland. Later, the post office moved to the little metal sided building of today. It had originally been a schoolhouse, moved from its site north of Carlisle.

    On the southwest corner of the village, Barney Brown ran a hotel. Mrs. Brown did the cooking, and her meals were famous throughout the area. In 1911, this hotel became a temperance house operated by William Hopkinson. At one time, this building housed the Toronto Dominion Bank.

    Another little settlement sprang up just east of the village. This was Progreston, on Twelve Mile Creek. Believed to have been named by John Knievel to indicate that the latest industrial technology was embodied in the little community. Progreston had a woollen mill, a peg mill, a small coffin factory, and a large grist mill which had been built in 1867 by William Campbell.

    "When the war of 1812 broke out he enlisted as a private in the militia and when the Americans approached Stoney Creek, he was appointed to go to Burlington Heights to meet troops and pilot them through.

    "The most important work done on John Eaton's home was converting it into the headquarters for all lost detachments of British troops who came by boat. He offered food and shelter for officers and men, and his horses and oxen contributed greatly to the transportation of supplies during the war.

    "In 1822 John Eaton was one of 5 men who founded the first church in Hamilton. It was purchased at King and Wellington streets for 20 pounds. A tablet in the first church marks this event.

    "John, along with his wife and 13 children prospered. It did not discourage them that when they first made their way through the bush to Carlisle they were forced to unleash the oxen and lead them through the dense underbrush one by one. Once they managed to build their cabin and work their land they would walk 12 miles to the market in Hamilton with a basket of eggs in one hand and a basket of butter in the other. In those days now long gone, a large family was an economic necessity, not a handicap.

    "Their one room cabin was added to over the years to accommodate the growing family and eventually there were 13 rooms. John Eaton acted as the local Methodist preacher and held many meetings and church revival meetings that were held on his land for many years.

    "John Eaton died in 1837 at the age of 64. My mother interviewed an old gentleman, Aszhel Bates, 85, the grandson of Eliza Jane, daughter of John Eaton, who had many stories to tell of Carlisle in the old days. He remembered his great grandmother Eliza Jane recalling, as a little girl, watching the coffin of John Eaton being carried across the 12 Mile Creek by pallbearers balancing on a log.

    "Catherine died in 1874. Stories recall that she was a splendid nurse and people would come from miles around to be treated by her. If they were too ill she would either walk or travel by oxen to their homes. She lived to be 88 and did not have much use for doctors. A few months before her death her son said they had better get a doctor to come and see her. She said "No Enoch, do let me live out my natural life time."

    "Their eldest son, Anson, was heir to their farm so he divided it equally among his brothers. He then went to Waterloo County where he married Lornhama Sutton. They had 11 children."

    and about Carlisle:

    "The newest building in Carlisle is the Eaton Manor, a senior citizen home that overlooks the Carlisle Park and the 12 Mile Creek. The first person to move into the senior citizen home was George Eaton, great great grandson of John Eaton.

    "My great uncle George owns a century farm just west of Carlisle and he has decided to keep it for a year in case life at the "manor" does not suit him, because he is a man of the land like most of the Eaton clan.

    "Carlisle United Church has been an important gathering in the village since the days the meetings were held in John and Catherine's home.

    "In 1839 the small settlement of Eaton was established to the point where the inhabitants felt they needed a separate church to worship, and so for 2 pounds John Morden was hired to build a small wooden structure on the banks of the Twelve Mile creek and it soon became known as the Chapel-at-the-Twelve.

    "Catherine Eaton's name appears on the roll of the first worshippers in the Chapel-at-the-Twelve and again when the first church was built in 1852. The first church was a frame building, painted white and used for church purposes alone. It was a plain oblong building with two classrooms at the back and was erected on the site immediately south of the present church in what is now the cemetery. By 1891 the congregation had outgrown the little white church and the present church building was constructed - a large brick two -storey structure with a balcony. Opening services were held on Sunday, October 11, 1891.

    "A few of the trees planted along Centre Road by John Eaton, my great great great great grandfather are still standing to remind us of the past."

    He migrated from Chester in 1819, arriving in New Hope (Hespeler) in September, with wife and family. He first bought 100 acres in 1821 from his father-in-law, Abraham Clemens in BLB3-10. In 1830 he bought another 200 acre farm in BLB2-1 for £375.

    1831 Assessment: lots: BBF1w BLB2-1, acres: 310, cultivated acres: 120, horses: 2, cow: 3, oxen: 2, men: 3, value: 229, value per acre: .74.

    In 1834 a new set of township officers was created. These were the "fence viewers" whose job it was to settle disputes between neighbours as to the value of fencing provided by a neighbour, i.e. If livestock broke a fence down and caused damage to another's fields the fence viewer would decide if the fence had been up to standard and to what extent the damage was and how much money was owing in compensation. (Prior to 1834 this had been the job of the "Overseers of Highways", who checked roads, fences, ditch draining etc. and decided what maintenance work was needed and who was to help.The Overseer had complete control over who in his division was to help and called upon persons had to go and bring whatever tools were requested by the Overseer.) Fence viewers also had to settle disputes over drainage.

    In January 1837 Isaac and Jacob Shantz Jr. were appointed Fence viewers for the Lower Part of Waterloo, east of the Grand River, Daniel Stauffer was for Lower Part of Waterloo west of the Grand River, Philip Bleam was for Preston and Adam Winters was appointed for the village of Waterloo.

    By 1861 most of the family had moved from the district and none show up in the 1861 assessment.

    Notes:

    John and Catherine Eaten moved from Stoney Creek in 1826 and settled on 400 acres of crown land. Among the very early settlers in the Carlisle area were the Fords, Eatons, Pattons, Kievels, Hamiltons, McColls, Crookers, Gunbys, Mordens, Adamsons, Binkleys, Hunts, Greens, Mills and Bennetts. As other settlers came a small village grew up and was named Eaton. In 1853 the name was changed to Carlisle. In 1870 there were 150 inhabitants.

    Martha is buried at the Princeton Cemetery, her head stone states she was the widow of John, her age at death was 97 years . The burial site of John is unknown. She died on December 30, 1831.

    It is believed that John and Martha came to Canada about the time of the American Revolution bringing with them a family of 9 children. Only three members of the family have been located. All three sons served in Burfords First Militia along with their father John. Son John settled in Carlisle while Daniel and Elam both remained at Etonia.

    It is possible that John Sr. travelled to the east coast for some reason and died there hence no gravestone.

    From Les Brunton....

    It started with John Eaton on October 31, 1810 when he received a Crown Grant of 200 acres.

    He split this up among his sons Elam and Danial (65 acres each) and sold the remaining 84 acres to a Josiah Dean.

    Elam sold his portion to Henry Prior in 1860. This is the section that I lived in. The old part of the house that is still there is very old. The wooden logs are still supporting the floor boards in the kitchen. Who knows, maybe it has been there since 1810.

    The Petition of John Eaton

    Humbly Shews

    That your petitioner came to this Province in September last, returned to the States and now has come forward with Provisions, Farming Utensils, etc. to commence a Settler. One of his Sons has been two years Settled in Burford, and another has come with your Petitioner and brought
    with him Farming Utensils.

    Your Petitioner has a Family which consists of a Wife and Nine Children, three sons (exclusive of the above two) able to bear Arms all of which will positively be in this Province in October
    next if health permits. Wherefore your Petitioner Prays for a Grant of Land in Oxford to
    accomode himself and them on which he will immediately improve on such relief as to your
    Wisdom may seem meet.

    «/i»From Tim Eaton:

    Here is a wealth of information for the researcher. John Sr. has a wife and nine children. One son
    has been in Burford for two years already, making his entry in at least 1795. The total number of
    sons seems to be five, all able to bear arms, a handy thing if you are wanting to populate the
    frontier with pioneers ready to fight for your country. The son who came with him is Daniel, as
    evidenced by his petition for a land grant, which was dated the same day as his father's.

    Notes:

    In 1809 Abraham Clemens came to Waterloo Township accompanied by most of his family. At the time he migrated he was listed as a mature parent, that is still having dependent children at home.

    He purchased a farm from the estate of Abraham Gingrich at the east end of Preston, Waterloo Co. at Lot 1, Con. 1 on the Dumfries Line. In 1819 he purchased 516 acres in Concession 3, including what is now the town of Hespeler.

    From Hespeler History: " Michael Bergy and Abraham C. Clement(s) were owners of the site of Hespeler. Mr Bergy built the first sawmill and a small foundry. Later he built a second mill which he sold to Mr. Abraham Clement(s). About 1840 Cornelius Pannabaker erected another mill and foundry."

    The Journals of Henry Melchoir Muhlenberg, Vol III, Pg 690: "1785 October 18, Tuesday. United in marriage Abraham, the son of George Clemens, and the daughter of Paul Custer, hitherto unmarried persons of Skippach, Montgomery County, on the written consent and bond of the parents"

    Abraham Pannebaker in WHS 1921, states "his [Abraham's] wife was Polly Custer. Both Abraham and Mary Custer Clemens are supposedly buried at the Wanner Cemetery. Sarah is supposedly the youngest child of Custer/Clemens/Miller family and born abt Jan 1805, based on her age at death so if Mary Custer is the first wife then she would have died around 1805-1807....maybe died in child birth...again Rebecca Miller would not have been the mother of any of the children".

    New Hanover Lutheran Church, New Hanover Twp. Records of early marriages: "Clemens, Abraham married Mally Miller 27 Feb 1807" (Unverified). Ezra Eby's "Biographical History of Waterloo Co.." says Rebecca Miller. Founding Families of Waterloo Township, 1800-1830, Elizabeth Bloomfield, 1995: List Abraham as accompanied to Ontario with spouse Rebecca Miller. Clemens Family Chronology, William Montgomery: " 1764, ___, Abraham Clemens, born to George Clemens and Elizabeth Carlisle of Chester, Pa. Married Rebecca Miller.

    Notes:

    The Van Dusens, Van Duzens and the Van Duzers are descended from Jacob Van Dusen who came to America about 1621 from Amsterdam, Holland.

    Research has shown that Jacob Van Dusen came from Holland on the second trip of the Mayflower as a member of the crew.

    The Van Dusens of the Hamilton district were millers and farmers during their 180 years at New Amsterdam (currently New York City). Levinus Van Dusen was bom near Hillsdale in New York State about 1750 and married Sarah Humphrey in the year 1773. They lived between Albany and Hudson. At the time of the American Revolution they were Loyalists and, as their property was taken from them, they migrated in 1800 to Upper Canada with nine of their eleven children. They brought in a mill and settled south of Red Hill near Albion, five miles east of the present city of Hamilton. Sarah and Levinus Van Dusen were buried on their own land in 1848 and 1842 (or 1833) respectively.

    Throughout the years, the children of the Van Duzer families have married for the most part into other United Empire Loyalist families and remained on the land as growers or entered various professions.

    Ira E. Van Duzer was one of those who continued to farm. He married the former Eleanor J. Longmire. Together they owned a large acreage on Highway No. 8 at Winona. The existing brick residence on the property was the family home for three generations and was built in 1895 under Ira Van Duzer's supervision.

    Ira Van Duzer was one of the original pioneers in the fruit growing industry in the Niagara Peninsula. Ira Van Duzer started as a nurseryman growing his own trees from seedlings and was the first to export fruit from the area.

    His son, John Byron Van Duzer, was born in Winona on March 9, 1892. He attended school at Winona and the Hamilton Collegiate Institute. After graduating he farmed with his father as I.E. Van Duzer and Son. After Ira E. Van Duzer died in 1922, John Van Duzer took over the intensive fruit cultivationoperation and controlled all the properties.

    Besides farming, J.B. Van Duzer was active in community affairs. He served well in education, his church and several Saltfleet Township services. The Van Duzer descendants continue to serve the public in law and education.

    The Van Duzer home was built in 1895, under the supervision of Ira Van Duzer, at a cost of $4,000. The residence formed part of a 45 acre fruit farm known as Pomona Orchards. The dwelling was constructed in the Victorian vernacular style characterized by elements of Gothic and Classic Revival. The Van Duzer home has many unique and significant architectural qualities. The many steep pitched roofs and the exposed stone foundation serve to frame the brick facade. The main entrance is identified by a two storey projecting bay, capped by a Seriina or Palladian window, in a pedimented gable supported by ornate brackets. The pediment is echoed at the first floor verandah.

    The secondary entrance, at right angles to the main, exhibits a similar treatment with the gingerbread verandah connecting both points. Here the less formal flat facade replaces the two storey bay. The pedimented gable with a Seriina window is still in evidence, as is the pedimented gable below.

    The verandah continues beyond the secondary entrance to the rear, supporting a second storey verandah along half its length. The second-storey verandah may have been subsequently added to the original structure.

    A dining room window on the west facade, with a semi-circular leaded glass segment above, is unique to the fenestration of the structure.

    The interior trim is stately in design and executed in Georgia Pine. Massive newel posts with robust motifs accentuate the staircase, which is finished to the third floor. This is unusual as the third floor was not considered habitable space, but used for storage.

    The banisters meeting the newel posts at each floor offer an interesting solution to railing continuity and make a unique detail.

    Important to the preservation, of the Van Duzer House are the original features which include the verandah which connects two entrances at right angles to each other, the leaded glass window on the west facade, and the interior trim and staircase. The exposed stone foundation, the brick facade and the wooden windows are all of interest. The pedimented gables are also of merit.

    Taken from http://www.dragonbbs.com/members/ww8566/SuttonRobertAmbroseGenealogy.html

    James Sutton was the first pastor of Tuckihoe Baptist Church, Gloucester, NJ, in 1771. He resigned to go to Cowmarsh, DE; then western PA. He was the first pastor and one of the six founders of the North Ten Mile Baptist Church in 1773, in what is now Washington Co, PA. He served until 1781, being succeeded by Rev John Corbly for two years, who in turn was followed in 1783 by James' brother David Sutton.

    In 1783, together with Col McClean, James Sutton was appointed a trustee of Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA, by its founding Act of Assembly. One year later, 10/30/1784, when the Mount Moriah Baptist Church of Georges Township was constituted as a branch of the Great Bethel Baptist Church, he was installed as its first pastor.

    In 1787, James Sutton moved to Monongalia Co, VA, where he was installed as the pastor of the Mount Pleasant Church. James preached in Ohio, and is recorded as the pastor of the first church organized in Warren Co, OH in 1797. This was the Clear Creek Baptist Church at Ridgeville, located only a few miles from where David Sutton settled in Warren Co. James also preached in Kentucky. ( by Mary Lou Hermiller)

    From MelodyJBS (Ancestry)

    I have the following additional real estate information on James:

    1758 Bought his home farm in Hackettstown, Independence Twp, Sussex (now Warren) Co from Obadiah Ayers

    ca 1760 another farm in Mansfield Twp

    (Neither deed is on file in the appropriate counties)
    8 Mar 1784 he sold a farm in Mansfield Twp to Jonathan Sutton

    1 Aug 1791 he sold land in Independence Twp to John Sutton, Jonathan Sutton and Joseph Sutton of Mansfield Twp. His wife Hannah joined with him in the deed but was soon deceased as he signed the 1791 deed alone.

    Copies of family letters in possession of Thomas Sutton Higley written by a ggrandaughter indicate that Samuel Sutton was 9 or 10 years old when his grandfather James died...which makes the death date around 1791. No administration of estate because of previous disposal of property. No death record or tombstone has been found.

He was a man of great piety, of indomitable courage and energy of character, and was in possession of considerable means. The principal cause of his emigrating to America was a desire to dwell among his co-religionists, the 'Schwenkfelders', who had formed several settlements in Montgomery and other counties in Pennsylvania at a very early date. In 1734, he and his wife, Maria Krauss, emigrated to America and settled in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, where they resided until their deaths. He died December 16th, 1775, and she died November 10th, 1756. To them was born a family of seven children, the eldest of whom was born on the Atlantic Ocean while coming to America.

    Notes:

    George Clemens, "eldest son of Abraham and Catharine Clemens, was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in 1732. When a young man his father paid him his portion of legacy and he left Montgomery County and went to Chester County, same state, where he invested in real estate in both Pikeland and Charlestown Townships. In 1760-61 he erected a grist mill where he made quite a fortune. He was married to Elizabeth Carlisle. They lived retired for several years when he died in September, 1813, aged about 81 years. To him and his wife Elizabeth were born quite a family but the names of only two sons have been handed to the writer, namely: V Abraham and V George who both settled in the county of Waterloo, Ontario." - Ezra E. Eby

    There is some question as to the date of George's birth. Most sources list it as 1732, but that would make his mother 10 years of age at his time of birth.

    During the American Revolution, he fought with Richard Brown's Company and fought in the Battle of Long Island, 27 Aug 1776. The muster roll of Oct 1, 1776 shows that he deserted Sept 12, which is when George Washington evacuated New York City. Desertion at this time did not necessarily mean cowardice or lack of loyalty to the Revolution. Often soldiers left to help with home harvest. There is no record of George being punished or of having his land confiscated so probably he left the army to help with harvest.

    In 1776 his father's will lists him as executor of his estate.

    In 1778 he married Elizabeth Carlisle. She was of Quaker descent and well educated. They had two known sons, Abraham and George. Abraham was born in Chester County, Pennsylvania, married Rebecca Miller, and lived in Hespeler, Waterloo County, Ontario. George was born 17 Jul 1777, died 10 Aug 1863 and married Elizabeth Stauffer 1790-1836. They had 18 children.

    Military Service:
    George fought with Richard Browns Company and fought in the Battle of Long Island, 27 Aug 1776.

    Elizabeth was the daughter and heiress of Edward Carlisle. She was a cultured lady and skilled in medicine and was regarded as the doctor for miles around their home. - Ezra E. Eby

    She was probably of English descent. There are no mention of the name in the Mennonite records of either Pennsylvania or Europe. There was in England, close to the Scottish border, a Carlisle city, borough, and county town of Cumberland.

    Notes:

    John bought land at Harrison's Neck in the Passaic Valley, New Jersey, November 11, 1741, and sold his land at Piscataway, Decmber 31, 1741. His will was dated December 17, 1746 and proved December 20, 1750. In 1713, John and 50 others of Middlesex county petitioned to the house of representatives of New Jersey.

His will (dated December 17, 1746) was probated December 20, 1750; so he must have died that year aged seventy-six. The will mentions all his children excepting Sarah. His wife Elizabeth died (according to her gravestone in the Baptist Churchyard at Stelton, Piscataway), May 10, 1731, aged fifty-two years.

    "John Sutton apparently lived first at Hingham, but later removed to Scituate, in the Plymouth Colony, where on 2 Dec 1653 he sold the lands "which the town of Hingham gave to John Sutton, my father." He was therefore of age at this date. Frequently mentioned in the Scituate records, he married ther 1 Jan 1661, Elizabeth House (Vital Records of Scituate, vol. 2, p. 283), the daughter of Samuel House. John Sutton had a large family. Children listed. John Sutton, Senior of Scituate, "aged 70 years or there abouts" in his will dated 12 Nov 1691, mentions the names of his children." ("Proceedings of the N.E. Hist. Gen. Society", Vol. 91, p.63)

    Other Events:

    • Occupation: , , Silesia, Poland; gardener

    Notes:

    The Viehweg at Harpersdorf [now Twardocice, Poland] is the burial ground of about two hundred Schwenkfelders who were forbidden Christian burial in the local church cemetery. Burial in this dumping ground or 'Potter's Field' was a symbol of disgrace to the families of the deceased.

    Then why were they buried there? In the post-Reformation period, efforts were made by both the Catholic and Lutheran Churches to compel the Schwenkfelders to become members and to present their children for baptism. Since they refused they were treated as heretics and severely persecuted. Refusal of Christian burial was part of the persecution. Between the years 1720 and 1741, more than two hundred Schwenkfelders were interred there.

    After the migration to America, Rev. Christopher Schultz, in 1772, expressed the hope that the Schwenkfelders would secure this property and convert it into a graveyard with an appropriate monument.

    Rev. Oswald Kadelbach, a friend of the Schwenkfelders, and a resident of that area, was also desirous that the desecration of this tract be prevented as it was considered a public dump. The local people even came there, gathering loads of soil and exposing the bones of those buried there.

    About ninety years later, in 1861, Dr. Solomon Schultz, who was visiting hospitals in Europe in preparation for his work at the State Hospital in Danville, Pennsylvania, visited Silesia and the Viehweg. Distressed by what he found, he communicated with Schwenkfelders in America. Money was raised, the ground was purchased, and an attractive monument was erected in 1863. The inscription on the monument reads: (English translation)

    'Here rest in God the faithful Schwenkfelders who were buried in this Viehweg between 1720 and 1740.
    The descendants in North America erected this monument in memory of their ancestors in Probsthayn, Harpersdorf, Langenneuendorf, and Lauterseifen.'

    Pictures taken during the 1934 pilgrimage showed a well kept area in a grove of birch trees.

    (reprinted from The Schwenkfeldian, October 1977, pg. 4)

    Occupation:
    He worked in Langneundorf, Silesia.

    Buried:
    He was buried at Harpersdorf in the "Viehwag", a public burial ground or village dump, because the Catholic Church would not allow the Schwenckfelders to be buried in the regular cemeteries.
