Notes for ZEBULON HESTON II:

From WFT CD#1 Pedigree #2420: Zebulon (2nd) Heston was reported to be a man of considerable account in the religious world. He belonged to the Wrightstown Monthly Meeting of Friends, and stated his desire to appear in the Ministry at about 29 years of age. He traveled many miles in the service of truth. When nearly seventy years of age, accompanied by his nephew John Lacey, he paid a religious visit to the Delaware Indians, westward of Pennsylvania, and was cordially received. At a meeting of worship held on the Muskingum River, Captain White eyes, one of the Indian chiefs, made a speech and presented him with a belt of wampum, thus showing their regard for him and for his preaching. A memorial was prepared for Zebulon (2nd) Heston by the Wrightstown Meeting, after his death on March 12, 1776."


From David A. Fell, 07 Feb 1998 Email: dav249fell@aol.com to Ann Maxson: " Zebulon and Elizabeth lived in Makefield Twp., Bucks Co., PA"

Notes for ELIZABETH BUCKMAN:

From WFT CD#1 Pedigree #2420: In 1682 the good ship "Welcome" departed England, bound for America, under the authority of William Penn. Third on the list of those who embarked with him was William Buckman, of Billingshurst, Sussex, England, who was accompanied by his wife Mary, and daughters Sarah and Mary. William Buckman later married Elizabeth Wilson and the children resulting from this union were David, Thomas, Elizabeth, Rebecca, and Ruth. Elizabeth, the third child of this second marriage, became the wife of Zebulon (2nd) Heston, the "well known Quaker preacher" who died in 1776. It is of interest to note that a list of those who embarked with William Penn on board the "Welcome" was prepared by one Edward Amstrong for a lecture before the Pennsylvania Historical Society in 1851. Additions and corrections to this list were made by Alfred M. Heston, who in 1869 was given a list of William Penn's associates on the ship "Welcome" by his grandfather, Isaiah (2nd) Heston. was a native of Bucks County, and resident of Chester County Pennsylvania at the time of his death (at age 92) in 1870."[carrol4.FTW]

Notes for THOMAS HESTON:

From WFT CD#1 Pedigree #2420: Thomas Heston was a Colonel during the Revolutionary War. He was the son of Jacob and Mary Warner Heston and the grandson of Zebulon (1st) Heston. He married Hannah Clayton in 1775. About 1781, with Thomas Carpenter, he purchased from the Stangeer Brothers the glass works which they had established in 1775. Known as Heston's Glass Works for some years the name was later changed to Glassboro.


Colonel Heston's daughter Bathsheba married a Captain Eban Whitney. It was told of Captain Whitney that he was cast ashore with his ship at or near Cape May, and in passing through the neighborhood of the glass works, on his way to Philadelphia, he saw and became enamored of Colonel Heston's daughter, Bathsheba. He married her and settled there engaging in the glass business with his father-in-law. Captain Whitney and Bathsheba had two sons, Thomas Heston Whitney and Samuel A. Whitney, who became proprietors of the works in 1837, and developed the enterprise into the largest glass works in the country . Thomas Heston Whitney died and management of the glass works, at Glassboro, N.J., passed to his son John P. Whitney.
At the time of his death it was said of Thomas Heston Whitney, "none took a more earnest and patriotic interest in the concerns of the country. Although disappointed in his political aspirations--having been defeated as the Whig candidate for Congress in 1850--he never faltered in his love for his political principles, and when treason struck at the life of the Nation he gave liberally of his abundant means to the Cause of the Union."

1830 Federal Census: Amos and family cannot be found in the 1830 census. The census recorder must have missed their farm.
1840 Federal Census; age 24: Elias is shown to be head of household with no sign of Amos on the census, indicating Amos died sometime before 1840. (We now know that he died in 1829) Amos's name was still on the tax receipt s as late as 1842. The census shows:

1 M 20-30 (Elias)

1 M 15-20 (Titus Heston)

1 F 40-50 (Euphemia)

1 F 20-30 (Ann)

2 F 10-15 (Elizabeth & unknown daughter)

1880 Federal Census; age 64: In June of 1880, Emma, was the only child living at home with Elias and Jane.


Elias Johnson, head of household, white, male, 64, Farmer, born in OH, father born in VA and mother in PA

Jane Johnson, white, female, age 50, wife of Elias, born OH, father born in Ireland, mother in PA

Ema (Emma) C., white, female, 15, daughter of Elias, At Home, born in OH
Cinderella and Loman with child, Olive J. were living in the next household on the census.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is a lot of death information that has been saved on Elias. This is his obituary in the Carroll Chronicle newspaper:

"Dear Sir: We are once more called to chronicle the death of an aged and respected citizen. Elias Johnson died July 10, 1891, at 6:30 o'clock a.m. Deceased was born in Columbiana County, near New Lisbon, on May 18, 1816, and with his parents moved to Fox township, near Mechanicstown, in 1820, where he resided until the time of his death. Deceased had four sisters and one brother; two sisters and the brother survive him. It can be said of him he was an honorable and upright citizen, seeking to wrong no one and his hand and heart were always open to the wants of the needy and none went away empty. He united with the old Snyder M.E. Church near this place 65 years ago and was a consistent member until the time of his death. He was a staunch Democrat all the days of his life, seldom neglecting to go to the election to cast his ballot, but would argue with no one on politics, always claiming the right to think and vote as he thought proper, and giving to every man the same privilege. He had charity for

all and malice toward none. His death was brought on by being thrown from a load of corn fodder, alighting on his head, which caused partial dislocation of the neck and affecting his spine, which resulted in softening of the brain, causing death. The remains were laid to rest in Corinth cemetery, July 11, followed by a large concourse of sorrowing friends. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Billingsley, McMunn and Cummings, all making appropriate and addresses.

He also leaves a wife, three daughters and son to mourn their loss. In conclusion, we can truly say that another kind husband, a loving father, and a good, upright citizen has gone to a better world."

------------------------------------------------

This is an obituary in an unidentified newspaper. The initials AMB appear at the end. These could stand for Anna Mae Barber, Elias' granddaughter:

"Elias Johnston was born near New Lisbon, O., May 18, 1816, and died near Mechanicstown, July 10, 1891. For more than three score and ten years Mr. Johnston lived on the farm where he died; and being a man of industrious habits and exemplary life and character, he was widely and favorably known. As a Christian citizen, husband and parent his praise is spoken by all. He was a member and loyal supporter of the church at Mechanicstown from the time of it's organization. Like a shock of corn full and ripe,

he is gathered home. AMB"

------------------------------------------------

This is another short obituary for Elias from an unknown newspaper:

"Elias Johnston, one of our pioneers, called yesterday. He has lived in Fox township for over 68 years, his father having bought the farm on which he lives from Wm. Ferrall when He (Johnston) was only four years of age."

------------------------------------------------

Elias eulogy:

"Read at Mr. Johnston's funeral by his pastor Rev. A.M. Billingsley.

----------In Memoriam------Elias Johnston, whose mortal remains we are so soon to consign to the cold embrace of mother earth, was born in Columbiana county, near New Lisbon, Ohio, May 18, 1816 and died near Mechanicstown, O. July 10, 1891, aged 75 yrs. 1 mo. 22 days. At about four years of age he came with his father's family to Fox township, Carroll county and has been a constant resident of said township and county, residing on the old homestead, during his more than three score and ten years.
The subject of this sketch was married March 17, 1853 to Miss Jane Crawford. The fruit of this union was four children, three daughters and one son, all living.

It would seem superfluous for me to attempt an extensive biography of Mr. Johnston whose life was so familiarly known to you all. To the memory of only a very few persons is the honor of a written record of their lives given; yet the annals of eternity will show that our lives have not been forgotten. They are in God's own keeping--the past as well as the future.

And though sounding eulogisms may never be pronounced in our honor by men the approval of God's 'well done good and faithful servant' will compensate through all eternity any lack of appreciation on the part of our fellow men. Mr. Johnston's life was passed in rural simplicity, apart from the crowded city or populous town. His the peaceful occupation of tilling the soil, tending his flocks and herds, providing for the wants of his family and contributing his part to the happiness and prosperity of the community.

The beautiful lines of Goldsmith might appropriately be paraphrased in describing the life of Mr. Johnston and some of the lines of Gray's beautiful elegy might fittingly be inscribed on the monument that shall mark his last resting place.

This happy, tranquil life, came to a close in the midst of the year. With the coming of a new day his spirit was ushered into the bright splendors of the eternal morning.

It is a matter of profound regret to all who knew Mr. Johnston that the closing months of his life were shadowed by failure of mutual powers--the result of an injury sustained some five years ago. We naturally (place) much importance to the last words of departing friends, and to be denied these last loving messages is indeed cause for sorrow. But in the case of Mr. Johnston the memory of his faithfulness during a long lifetime constitutes a richer legacy than any final messages could possibly do.

Though, as we have said, Mr. Johnston was a man of simple domestic tastes, yet he was well known in the community and the circle of his friends was large.

Mr. Johnston's public religious life dates back a period of about 55 years. He was number of the Methodist Episcopal church of Mechanicstown, with which organization he has been connected during all it's history, having hauled the first load of material for the building of the church as also for the wood-work of the present Presbyterian church of Mechanicstown.

Though a Methodist in his religious predilections yet he was tolerant of all denominations and would doubtless have adopted Bishop's Simpson's motto--'We live to make our own church a power in the land, while we live to love every other church which exalts our Christ.'

But now the end has come, a new entry must be made in the records of the church and the family bible. A new fact comes into the minds of the people.


Dear friends who mourn, comfort your hearts with the thought that, though the stay of the home is taken away, pain and distress are also over and the joys at God's right hand are his forever more."

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A card of Thanks was sent to the Carroll Chronicle:

"Please allow us through your paper to publicly thank our kind neighbors and many friends for their kindness and sympathy to us in our recent loss of a kind husband and loving father, and should sorrow and trouble enter their dear homes, may they find just such kind and sympathetic hearts to help them as they have been to us."


Mrs. Jane Johnson

Miss Emma Johnson


"Dear father is gone, we see him no more;

He has left this land for the golden shore.

We see the labor of his dear hand,

We miss him in our household band.


We see the path he so often trod,

But 'tis joy to know he rests with God.

That to God above his dear spirit has flown.

God has granted his wish for a home, sweet, sweet home.


Though parted on earth, the time will soon come,

When we shall all be re-united

In home, sweet, sweet home.
Emma Johnson"

The Johnson farm was located about 1 mile NNW of Mechanicstown, and at this time Arbor Road NE cuts through the middle of it. (See map from 1874's and from today.) The Historical Atlas of Carroll County, Ohio, published in 1874, has a map on page 63 which shows section lines and names the present owners of the farms. "E. Johnson" is on the map at S36 T13 R4 SE and S35 E1/2 NE. (Illustrated Historical Atlas of Carroll Co., OH under the superintendence of G.A. Aberhart, page 63; H.H. Hardesty, Chicago, 1874)


Today, the land is still farmed, although the structures appear to be fairly modern (one house, one trailer, several barns). It is possible the house was built on the site of the Johnson home or perhaps was built upon the original foundation.

Notes for LOWMAN MELVIN MARSH:

Lowman was a carpenter by trade and was one of the contractors who helped build the circular staircase in Morgan's Mansion in Alliance. In the 1916 Alliance City Directory, he is listed as a contractor on 345 S. Seneca in Alliance, and in 1929, he was the owner of the Mt. Union Woodworking Shop.


Lowman's granddaughter, Kathryn Marsh Hunter, remembered a family story about Lowman and the construction of the Corinth Presbyterian Church in Mechanicstown, Ohio in 1875. Lowman and his family helped build the church, and at one point Loman climbed on top of the small steeple and did a hand-stand!
When Lowman lived on Arch Ave. in Alliance, his brother Harvey lived next door. Lowman and Cinderella apparently moved to 205 (or 255) E. Wilbeth Rd. in Akron in the 1930's -- possibly living with or near their daughter Olive and her husband Louis Riblett.
1916 Alliance City Directory: "Marsh LM (Cinderella) contractor, res. 345 S. Seneca."

She was born October 5, 1874 in Warren, Lee Co., IA, and died October 23, 1920 in Pasadena, Los Angeles Co., CA.
Notes for CYRUS ESCULE JOHNSON:

Cyrus lived in Ness Co., KS sometime before 1891 (his given residence in his father Elias's will) and took up dentistry. He then moved to Newton, KS and lived there until his death in 1919. The article reporting his death in the Newton, KS Republican states that he "practiced dentistry in Newton for almost 30 years, coming here from Ness county..." so he moved to Kansas sometime before 1886, when he was still in his 20's. Following Cyrus's death, his famly moved to Pasadena, CA, where his widow Jennie Anderson Johnson died just a year after Cyrus.


A descendant of Cyrus's sister Emma, Ann Maxson, remembers Arthur Johnson, Cyrus and Jennie's son, and a teenage daughter visiting her family in the late 1940's or early 1950's.

The Corinth Presbyterian Church records in Mechanicstown, OH show an entry for Cinderella Marsh & Olive Jane on 24 Jan 1880. This seems to indicate a baby dedication or baptism.

Saltsman, a "cousin (far removed)", according to a letter sent by Frank to Olive on January 22, 1946. [Letter from Frank A. Saltsman, Wellsville, OH, Jan. 22, 1946; received from Olive's great-granddaughter Ondrea Riblett Cobb.]
Olive wrote to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's Historical and Museum Commission/State Archives and received a letter in return dated Aug. 29, 1949 giving the military record of her great-great grandfather, Phillip Saltsman, during the Revolutionary War.
