9 "Hugh Calkins was a radical, in religion a non-conformist, and living in the troublous times of Charles, the First, soon became satisfied that there were safer countires than England and Wales— for men who wished to worship God according to the dicatates of their own consciences. Accordingly, he with his wife, Ann, and John, their son, then four years old, joined a body of emigrants called the 'Welch Conspany,' and with their pastor, Rev. Richard Blinman, embarked and came to America, about 1638 or 1640. They settled first at Green's Harbor (now Marshfield) in New Plymouth colony, but religious dissentions arising, Mr. Blinman, Hugh Calkins and others removed to Gloucester. Hugh Calkins became one of the first board of selectmen, and in 1650 was chosen deputy to the general court of Massachusetts Bay colony. He was chosen again in 1651, but for some reason he and others removed in that year to Connecticut colony, some say to Saybrook, but he could not have remained there long, as he was soon in New London. The Connecticut colonial records show that Hugh Calkins was deputy at the general court from New London, May 20 1652. In all, he served twelve times as deputy from New London. By order of the general court, held October 3, 1654, Hugh and another were appointed a committee for enlisting men to fight the Naragansett Indians. The records also show that he was a deputy magistrate. In 1660 he again changed his residence to the place where the city of Norwich now stands, then a wilderness and owned by the Mohegan Indians. Just previously a treaty had been concluded, by and between the celebrated major Mason and others with the Mohegan chiefs, by which a tract of land nine miles square around Norwich was ceded to the whites, for the sum of seventy pounds sterling. Hugh and his son, John, were of the thirty-five original proprietors. Hugh appears in the colonial records as a deputy from Norwich to the general court, ten times. He was an active worker there in all measures for the public good; and also at home constantly identified with public interests. He was a deacon in the first churcth built in Norwich."42

Freeman 27 Dec 1642 in Gloucester, selectman 1643-48, rep. 1650-52. In New London, selectman, rep., and town clerk. In Norwich, first deacon, rep.2

Hugh was a Welchman who came to this country about 1640, stopped at Marshfield for a short season, then removed to Lynn, Mass., thence to New London about 1652, and finally to Norwich, Conn., about 1659.43

24 (Research) There was a Martha Eakins b abt 1841 who lived in Burford, Oxford, Ontario (search Canadian Census at Could she be our Martha Eakins? Both were Canadian, but the birth years do not match perfectly. Our Martha's birth year was 1844 in the 1900 US Census and about 1842 in the 1910 Census.  Eakins, Martha (I964)
25 (Research) Need to reconcile conflicting information from the "Hyde Genealogy" and "Calkins Family in America". Hyde Genealogy says that Ruth Tracy Calkins died in 1783 in Lebanon whereas Calkins says that Ruth Tracy Hyde died in 1773 in Norwich and Elijah remarried to Mercy (unknown).  Hyde, Elijah (I607)

27 (Research) This Samuel Martin is a candidate to be the father of Samuel Martin (I27) (b. cir 1759) who married Silence Greene. This question could be settled by comparing Y-DNA evidence from descendants of Samuel (I27) with that of Samuel (I29) or his ancestors. Each DNA donor must also have well-documented genealogical evidence for his descendancy.  Martin, Capt. Samuel (I29)
28 (Research):
I have a tintype photo of a man, woman and child, and the tax stamp on the back is cancelled Sept 13 1864 Freeport Ill B.L. Pratt. Another copy of this photo is identified as "Aunt Augusta". However, G. C. Tanner's book says that Sarah Augusta died in 1852 in San Francisco.

The almost unreadable 1850 US Census for Wayne, Stephenson, Illinois includes the household of Augusta Hall (22), Mary (1), and John Tanner (19). This could be our Sarah Augusta Tanner Hall. Possibly George Hall had died or left. I have not identified the John Tanner age 19. It is possible that he is Sarah Augusta's father and his age was illegible or entered incorrectly.

31 (Research): Was this Maud's husband? Censuses from 1880 -1920 show an Augustus Latham living in Excelsior or Minneapolis, Minn. In 1880 he was 22, unmarried and a rustic chair maker. In 1900 and 1910 he was married to Ora L. who was his age. They appear to have had three sons. He was working in real estate. In 1920 he was married to Grace who was 41; he was 62.

In all the censuses he was listed as born in Massachusetts. One of Maud's papers said Augustus was born in Connecticut.

34 (Research):Constant and Silence probably moved to Bristol, NY about 1800. There were at least two Constant Simmons in Bristol at that time as shown by the following from the Town of Bristol History, History of Ontario Co, NY., Pub 1878, pg 238 - 241. (Transcribed by Dianne Thomas). Found at:

"Constant SIMMONS settled on lot 46, about 1803. His son, Henry P. SIMMONS is an owner not only of the original homestead but of considerable additional lands." [Not our Constant, as he had no son Henry.]

"Contant SIMMONS, cousin to him just mentioned, came to Bristol in about 1797, and located on lot 49, where at present day, John JOHNSON resides. He erected a log house, which in its day took precedence as the finest in town. A tavern was opened, and continued for several years. Father and children passed their lives in the town." [Son Jonathan moved to Ohio in1832].

Simmons, Constant Jr. (I162)

36 (Research):Cothren's "History of Ancient Woodbury" lists several Ann Hurds. Two were born at about the right time, but one died young and the other married Jonathan Smith in 1753. Another Ann (b 1706, married Wait Hinman) could not have had children as late as 1765. All other Ann Hurds were too young. Hurd, Ann (I30)

41 (Research):Family records indicate she had one child. Married name unknown. Martin, Norma (I89)
42 (Research):Family records indicate that Blanche married John Russell and had a son John. Identified this John Russell as Blanche's son because his mother's maiden name in the death cert. index was Martin, he was the right age, and he died in Morrison County. Russell, John Kenneth (I160)
43 (Research):Francis - occupation: Clothier - Francis was a clothier by trade and left a sizeable estate. His will asked that he be buried in the parish churchyard of Titchfield. - Francis Littlefield listed 3 siblings (2 brothers and 1 sister) in his will. Littlefield, Francis (I277)
44 (Research):From Early Families of Schoharie County, New York Birth year 1782 in church record and 1781 in family bible. Ottman, George (I629)
45 (Research):Hannah's surname Osborne is in LFM's notes on the family history, and Maud Latham left a note saying that Hannah's sister was Selina Keeler, wife of Hyram Keeler who lived in Detroit (Hiram was actually her son.) This enabled me to locate Hannah's father, Isaac Orsborn.

In the 1900 US Census for Michigan, Wayne Co, Detroit ward 14, district 150: Selina Keeler b. June 1827 in New York. Her father was born in Maine and her mother in Connecticut. Selina is in the 1850 - 1880 censuses, but her husband was named Peter A. Keeler. Selina had a son named Hiram. 
Orsborn (Osborn), Hannah (I306)
46 (Research):Her last name Nichols or Nickols came from her gravestone and from the Hyde Genealogy.
Her name was given as Bateman in History of Afton (see: ) and as Beatman in Maud Latham's transcription of the Afton Enterprise. 
Nichols, Lydia (I588)
47 (Research):Hugh is in the Pane-Joyce genealogy Calkins, Dea. Hugh (I202)

49 (Research):In 1910 she was living with her son-in-law Dewitt Ottman and his family in New Haven, Olmsted, Minnesota (US Census).

50 (Research):Is this him: Minnesota Death Cert 1914-MN-018731 ?

Minnesota Cemetery Inscription Index
Township: Northfield
County: Rice
Name: Ulysses Tanner
Birth Date: 2 Aug 1832
Death Date: 30 May 1915
Cemetery: Northfield City

The date of death from the Minnesota Death Certificate Index (30 May 1914) differs by one year from that in the Cemetery Inscription Index (30 May 1915).

Also, his birthdate on p 425 of the Tanner book (20 August 1832) differs from the date on p 451 (2 August 1832).

There is another Ulysses Tanner from Cannon Falls, Goodhue County.
