801 The assertion that Isaac moved to a farm in Fairfield in 1792 appears to be incorrect, as the census puts him in Winslow in 1800.  Orsborn (Osborn), Isaac (I1463)
802 The Baraboo Republic - Wednesday, 4 Mar 1874
One of the most singular diseases known to the medical profession is that termed senile gangrene. It is a mortification of living flesh, and generally begins at the extremities, the tips of the fingers, and spreads until the whole body is affected or until death ensues. The prefix "senile" pertaining to old age, or having its origin from old age, is to distinguish it from the ordinary hospital gangrene. But one case of this disease has ever came to our knowledge, and that occurred a few days since near this village, as we are informed by Dr. M.M Davis, the attendant physician. The affected person was Mrs. Wilcox, an old lady aged 95 years, mother of Mr. Norris Wilcox. The disease first made its appearance at the tips of her fingers and had the appearance of a red blotch. It gradually extended over the hand and affected the arm. The sensation led the patient to believe that a dead weight was attached to that side of her body, and to ask that it be removed. As the disease is generally regarded as fatal, no relief could be afforded her, and the gangrene rapidly spread until all vitality had left the body.

803 The Barbour Collection gives two dates for the marriage of Benjamin 1st: 18 Apr 1700 for marriage to Elizabeth Butler and 28 Feb 1700/1 for marriage to Elizabeth Buttler. Family F739
804 The date of marriage is listed as April 4 in the text and April 5 in the figure on p 17 of VOW's Ottman book. Family F69
805 The date of the will on, 7 Mar 1768, is incorrect.  Baley (Bailey), Thomas 3rd (I1992)
806 The dates that Beaman gives for William's will (written 15 Mar 1752, proved 27 Apr 1752)are almost certainly erroneous as they are the same as the dates for son Nathan's will in both Beaman's and Tanner's books. Tanner, William (I138)
807 The exact date of Solomon's death is unclear. The probate documents give it as on or about 19 Aug 1848. A transcript of the death records from the Fulton County Clerk's Office says that he died 27 Aug 1848, while Solomon's gravestone says he died 27 August 1847, but that year is incorrect, because Solomon made his will 25 April 1848.

809 The family bible gave his birthday as 24 March 1796. Simmons, Jonathan Jr. (I144)
810 The family name has been spelled Orsborn, Osborn, Osborne, and Osburn, but Orsborn is what Isaac used in letters to his parents and brother William and on deeds. Orsborn also is the name on the family gravestones in the Oakwood Cemetery in Grass Lake, Michigan, and on the gravestones of Isaac's and Millie's first and second sons Peter, and Isaac 3rd. Orsborn was used on Enos' Michigan death certificate. However, Isaac's brother William used Osborn in a letter to Isaac. [see documents]. Orsborn (Osborn), Isaac Jr. (I414)
811 The family was using the surname Oleson in 1870 (US Census) but was calling themselves Otterness in 1880. We can only speculate why they changed their name, but it is notable that there were many Oleson families in Columbia County where they lived. Otterness would have been a distinctive name. Otterness, Ole Olson (I359)

813 The following is in the brief Osborn genealogy in the History of St. Albans, Maine:
"Isaac Jr., born Sept 15, 1792; m. Millie Saliner (last name indistinct in records)."
I have found no other record of this marriage, and this record probably refers to Mille Morse.

814 The following was taken from

"This is a bio. sketch from "History of Manitowoc County Wisconsin"
by Dr. L. Falge, 1911-1912, v.2, p.459-460.

Arthur D. Knapp, now practically retired, but for many years active in agricultural pursuits in Manitowoc county, was born September 19, 1848, in the town of Rapids, this county. He is a son of David and Hannah (Osborn) Knapp, natives of New York state. They married in 1836, shortly thereafter moving to Battle Creek, Michigan, where they lived until 1847. In that year they came to Manitowoc county, Wisconsin, and spent a short period in Rapids. In June, 1849, they came to the farm now occupied by Arthur D. Knapp. Here they bought one hundred and sixty acres of land from the government. Their trip was made overland in the usual pioneer fashion and arriving at their new home, the father put up a small log house and began clearing his land, living upon it until his death, on October 1, 1897, when he was in his eighty-fifth year. His wife died in 1882, when in her sixty-second year, and both are buried in the Clark's Mills cemetery. They were among the very early settlers of this locality, and suffered from the privations and hardships incident to their times. Supplies had to be hauled by sled from Manitowoc, during the winter months and the journey took from two to three days. Indians were numerous, although not hostile, and Mr. Knapp remembers many interesting events connected with them. The father was a democrat, and very prominent in local affairs, serving as chairman of the town many years.

Arthur D. Knapp was the sixth of nine children, and remained on the homestead, receiving a good common school education in the public schools, following which he attended the Manitowoc Seminary, from which he was graduated. Following this, he taught school two terms of nine months each, and then began farming, and has followed that line of work ever since. Marrying, Mr. Knapp took charge of the farm, and when his father died he inherited the homestead of one hundred and sixty acres. Later he sold all of it, but twenty-three acres, to the Quarry Company and other parties at a good price. The twenty-three acres he retained, he hires help to work for him, having retired. His frame barn, thirty-two feet by forty-two feet was built by his father, and was the first frame barn erected in that part of the county. The two-story frame residence was built in in 1893. Mr. Knapp and his father cleared and developed the land and made all of the improvements.

On September 8, 1884 Arthur D. Knapp was married to Miss Millie Olson, a daughter of Ole and Bertha Olson, natives of Norway. They married in Norway, and came to the United States about 1853, settling in Sturgeon Bay. There the father died in 1857, but the mother survived until 1903, and both are interred at Sturgeon Bay. Mrs. Knapp was the fourth of their five children, and was born January 11, 1853. Mr. and Mrs. Knapp had a daughter, Georgia B., whom they lost by accidental drowning when she was sixteen years of age. In 1907, they adopted a child, Blanch Leona, born August 15, 1907. To her they are giving the love and devotion they would have bestowed upon a daughter of their own. Both are consistent members of the Presbyterian church of Cato. In politics Arthur D. Knapp is a democrat as was his father, and he has served on the school board since he attained to his majority. "

According to the Presbyterian Church of Cato no longer exists and did not exist at the time the biosketch was written. Here is the history cut and pasted from that site.

"In 1869 a Presbyterian church was established at Cato, the elders being S.D. Robinson, later succeeded by R. McNutt, N. Darling, D. Robinson and 0. Davis. No regular pastor served the church until 1893 when Rev. A. Rederus was called from Sioux City, Iowa. On May 19th two years later he revived the Eaton church at Niles, M. Johnson and W. Tyler being chosen elders. He continued to minister at both places until 1898 when he resigned, since which time the pulpits have been vacant. "

Knapp, Arthur D. (I317)
815 The following was taken from: Portrait and Biographical Album of Knox County, Illinois, Biographical Publishing Company, Chicago pp. 523-524.

W.A. Lee. Among the townships of Knox County, Sparta can certainly boast of her quota of energetic, well-to-do farmers. Many of those who have fine farms in Sparta Township came here poor in pocket, but with the firm determination of establishing permanent homes for themselves and families, and having faith in the development of the country, located and for years have labored to accomplish their desire, and have succeeded. Among this number is the gentleman whose name heads this notice, who is at present residing on his fine farm on section 5, in the township named. Mr. Lee was born in Ontario County, N. Y., Sept. 26, 1822, his father being Amos and his mother Mary (Willard) Lee, natives of Massachusetts and Vermont respectively. The calling of his father was that of a farmer, and the children of the parental household were ten in number, seven of whom are living at this writing -- Elias W., Myron H., William A., George C, Benjamin F. and Thaddeus C. Those deceased are Charles H., Harriet H. and Hannah A. Both heads of the house-hold died in New York State, the mother in 1877 and the father in 1879. W. A. Lee lived with his parents until he was 25 years of age, having in the meantime received a rudimentary education at the common schools, which was supplemented by an academical course. After leaving school he clerked for his brother, and worked on a farm until 1846. It was during this year that he made up his mind to go West and grow up with the country, and following up his determination he came to Galesburg and made settlement. On arrival there he engaged in buying stock, and a year later, in 1847, embarked in the brick business, and was occupied for a year. In 1848 he erected the first meat-market in the present active, thriving city of Galesburg, and conducted the same with signal success until 1853. Selling out his market, he purchased a farm of 80 acres located three miles north of Galesburg, and engaged in that most independent of callings, farming. Subsequently he added another 80 to his original purchase and lived on his land, actively engaged in its cultivation, until 1857. He then sold his real estate and purchased a farm in Sparta Township, of 160 acres, the same being located on section 6, and to which he added an additional 80 on section 5, in the same township, by a subsequent purchase. In 1865 he purchased a store in Wataga, and a block of ground known as the Watkins property. Since he moved to Sparta Township he has engaged to no inconsiderable extent in stock-raising, making a specialty of the Poland-China swine. Mr. Lee has been twice married, first in 1848, to Miss Laura S. Booth, the accomplished daughter, by adoption, of Noah W. Stanley, of New Britain, Conn. She was only a wife for two short years, her demise occurring Sept. 6, 1850, at Galesburg, where she lies buried. The second matrimonial alliance of our subject was solemnized Aug. 23, 1853, on which occasion the destiny of Miss Betsey Knowles and that of our subject were united. She was the daughter of Judge Paul Knowles, of West Avon, Livingston Co., N. Y., and of her union with Mr. Lee two children, George K. and William A., were born. The good wife and kind mother departed this life in 1873. George K., her eldest son, married Miss Kate Bowman, a native of this State, in 1880, and by her has one child, a daughter, Maude. William A. Lee selected as his companion in life Miss Jannie, the intelligent and accomplished daughter of William Patterson, of Sparta Township. Their marriage took place in 1880, and they also have two children to brighten their household - Freddie P. and Betsey K. Mr. W. A. Lee is a self-made man in every sense the word implies. He started in this life with nothing, and what he has he has made himself. In politics he votes with the Republican party, and as a social gentleman and a prominent citizen he is the peer of any. 
Lee, William A. (I727)
816 The household moved during the census and were counted twice. The other location was Detroit Ward 6, Wayne, Michigan Mathews, Roswell (I1006)
817 The identity of Catherine Willse's parents is a long-standing brick wall and much more research is required before I can conclude that this James Wilsey is actually Catherine's father.
The possibility that James Wilsey is the father of Catherine Willse Tanner is based on a public family tree on This James Wilsey (b. 1758) was the eldest son of Gerardus Wilsey and Sarah Pinkney. James married his third(?) wife in 1816 in Otsego County putting him in the right general area for his daughter Catherine to have met John Tanner.
It is notable that John Tanner's sister Roxana married Blenis Willse, who was the son of John Wilsey and grandson of Gerardus Wilsey. If these relationships are correct, then Catherine and Blenis were cousins who married a brother and sister.
The fact that one of Catherine's sons was named James Wilsie Tanner is consistent with the idea that Catherine's father was named James, but obviously could be a coincidence.  
Family F574
818 The identity of the parents of the six Knapp siblings (Samuel, Susannah, Rachel, David, Solomon, Benjamin S.) has not been proved, but they were listed together as siblings in Catherine Labaugh Knapp's will. Many undocumented trees say that their parents were Benjamin Knapp and Hannah. See Benjamin Knapp 3rd (I2097 on this site) Other undocumented trees and A. A. Knapp's Nicholas Knapp Genealogy say that they were Samuel Knapp and Nancy (or Mary) Lyon. It is important to note that the information on the Knapp family of Fulton County, New York (which includes several of the Knapp siblings) in A. A. Knapp's book is replete with errors and inconsistencies. Family F289
819 The marriage of Florilla Keeler and James Becker was inferred from two facts:
1. Florilla Keeler and Florilla Becker are the same age.
2. Carrie Becker, age 10, was living with Florilla Keeler's brother Idus in 1880 and was identified as his niece.  
Family F533
820 The middle name Elmer is deduced. He was Frederick E. in the 1870 and 1880 US Censuses. There was no Elmer, who would have been the same age as Frederick. He appeared as Elmer F. Nellis in the record for his marriage to Eliza Mumby and in the 1910 US Census. He was Elmer on Eliza's death certificate in 1913. He again appeared as Frederick E. Nellis in the 1918 record for his marriage to Mabel Moore and then appeared along with Mabel as Elmer Nellis in the 1920 and 1930 US Censuses. Both marriage certificates name his parents as Andrew Nellis and Marian or Mary Davis.  Nellis, Frederick Elmer (I1019)
821 The Morse Genealogy says "they settled in Gloucesterville, N. Y.". Glousterville is doubtless a mis-transcription of Gloversville, the largest town near Mayfield where they lived.  Family F160
822 The movements of William and his family in New York are unclear. The Family of Dewitt Gilbert and Elma Phelps Ottman states that all of William and Polly's children were born in Oswego County New York, most at Hastings but the last two at Clay. However, his son Menzo's birthplace is given as Schoharie County in is Civil War muster records.

William, Polly and their family moved to Wisconsin in he 1850's and to Minnesota circa 1870.

William was a cooper in Rochester, Minnesota until he retired in old age and went to live first with Dewitt and then with Sidney. 
Ottman, William (I167)
823 The name Leroy was changed to Westfield Center in 1971.  Simmons, Jonathan Sr. (I146)
824 The number of children belonging to Jedidiah and Deborah is unclear. Richard W. Cook identified three unnamed children baptized on 17 Dec 1772. Based on circumstantial evidence, the website Osborne Origins has provided the names two probable sons (Ephraim and Jonathan), but I have not included them. Family F587
825 The only source for Oscar Napoleon is the anonymous Simmons family record found in the family papers (SimmonsFamilyRecord.pdf). Simmons, Oscar Napoleon (I476)
826 The principal evidence that Susan is a daughter of Martin Keeler and Nancy Northrop is Susan's picture with Nellie Ottman Wilson's note on the back "Susan Keeler Ladd - Sister to - Laura Keeler Phelps". Nellie was Laura's grand-daughter and knew Laura for more than thirty years.

Census data show that Susan Keeler Ladd was living near her sisters Laura Jane Keeler Phelps and Sarah Ann Keeler Phelps in Hastings, Oswego, New York in 1850 and in Grand Marsh, Adams, Wisconsin in 1860. After 1860 Laura and Clark Phelps moved to Minnesota and later still Susan and Era Ladd moved to Iowa. Sarah and Edmund Phelps lived out their lives in Grand Marsh. 
Keeler, Susan M. (I1450)
827 The property description begins "beginning at the northeast corner and running southerly along by the pond till it comes to a creek called Stephen's creek". Rattray says that the head of Stephen's Creek was on the westerly side of Georgica Pond in the Wainscott section of East Hampton.  Orsborn (Osborn), Isaac (I1463)
828 The rose window in the Episcopal Church in Little Falls is dedicated to Kitty. The church was deconsecrated in November, 2015 because of a dwindling membership.  Tanner, Martha Washington (I117)
829 The Thomas Baley who married Rachel Dodge was Thomas Baley the 3rd. Bayley (Baley, Bailey), Thomas 2nd (I2010)
830 Their home was 5148 Lyndale Ave South, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Martin, Kenneth Tanner (I78)
831 There appears to be no evidence that the Amidon family was of French Huguenot origin, as has been claimed.  Amidon, Philip (I189)
832 There appears to be no record of Sarah's birth except in the Rev. G.C. Tanner's 2nd book, but he does not name her parents or place of birth. Circumstantial evidence suggests that she was born to Thomas Baley and Huldah Stanton Baley of New London County, Connecticut. Sarah and Nathan Tanner named their 3rd child Stanton and their sixth child Huldah, the family and given names of Sarah's presumed mother. Neither Stanton nor Huldah was a traditional given name in the extended Tanner family. In fact, Sarah's son is the only Stanton Tanner and Sarah's Huldah was the first Huldah born to a Tanner in either of G.C.Tanner's books on the Tanner family. Sarah's presumed brother Stanton Bailey lived in Petersburgh, New York where Nathan and Sarah lived. In 1773 Sarah's presumed father Thomas Baley and his son Thomas Baley, Jr. leased adjacent properties in Little Hoosick (now Petersburgh) in the East Manor of Rensselaerwyck and were listed near Stanton Baily and Nathan Tanner in the 1790 US Census for Stephen Town, Albany, New York. (Stephen Town was the eastern half of what would become Rensselaer County in 1791 and included the area that would become Petersburgh, also in 1791.)  Bailey, Sarah (I133)
833 There is a biographical sketch of Alexander Rae Davidson at the Manitoba Historical Society Website --
Davidson, Alexander Rae (I119)
834 There is a record of Jean T Cobb accompanied by Karen Jean Bruce entering the United States at Idlewild Airport, NY from Bogota, Columbia on 28 Jul 1955. Thus, Jean married Cobb before that date.  Family F735
835 There is an issue with Aaron and Moses that I do not understand, but have not pursed, as Cleveland assigned the ID 236 to Aaron and 236a to Moses.
Also Cleveland says Aaron could also have been born 7 Dec 1727 at Mendon, Worcester, Massachusetts.  
Cleaveland (Cleveland), Aaron (I1870)
836 There is an issue with Aaron and Moses that I do not understand, but have not pursed, as Cleveland assigned the ID 236 to Aaron and 236a to Moses.  Cleaveland (Cleveland), Moses (I1871)
837 There was a Chester T. listed in Walworth's "Hyde Genealogy", but this was probably Cleoden T.  Martin, Cleoden T. (I66)
838 There was a James Wilsey living in Maryland, Otsego, New York US Census), but he appears to be too young to be Catherine's father.  Family F574
839 There was a marker commemorating his Civil War service, but I found no gravestone for him or his wife Julia.  Mathews, Roswell (I1006)
840 There was no will on file for David B. Knapp in the probate court of Manitowoc County. We did find probate papers for Arthur D. Knapp, but they told us nothing about his father.

Knapp, David Benjamin (I305)
841 There were five more deeds registered in which Martin Stover separately paid additional heirs of Peter Morse for the same tract of land. All the heirs claimed an undivided share.

Martin Stover paid:
14 Mar 1825, $72.94 to Marvin Morse of Schaghticoke, a son of Peter's son Amos.

9 Jan 1828, $52.14 to James H. Simond [or Simonds] and Hannah his wife. Hannah was a daughter of Peter's son Rufus.

10 Feb 1830, $96.74 to William Turner and Kasia his wife of Schaghticoke. Kasia was a daughter of Peter's son Amos.

1 Mar 1831, $60.11 to Almira Kazia Morse. Almira was a daughter of Peter's son Rufus.

26 Sep 1834, $71.49 to Alfred Smith and Silany his wife of Newport, Herkimer, New York. Silany was a grandchild of Rufus Morse and a great grandchild of Peter Morse being the only surviving child of Sarah Greenfield a daughter of Peter's son Rufus.

845 This land was sold at Sheriff's auction on 15 Sep 1860 as the result of a legal action brought against David B Knapp, James Fenlason and James McNulty by F. Henry Damon.  Knapp, David Benjamin (I305)
846 This marriage is documented by the baptismal records of their children at the Clarkstown Reformed Church which named the parents as Abraham Thew (various spellings) and Rachel Knep. It is possible that Rachel married first John Cobblay, as there are records for the marriage of Rachel Knapp and John Cobblay on 24 Apr 1760 and the marriage of Rachel Cobby and Abraham Thew on 21 Aug 1761. If so, why was she called Rachel Knep rather than Rachel Cobby or Cobblay in the baptismal records? Were there two Abraham Thews who married Rachels? Family F746
847 This page is based on G.C. Tanner's book William Tanner of South Kingston Rhode Island . . . However, G.C. Tanner's work on William has been found to contain errors. I intend to revise this page as soon as I can. In the meantime, please do not take this page as correct. Tanner, William (I138)
848 This Samuel is a candidate to be the Samuel (I27) who married Silence Greene . However, according to Notices: Genealogical and Historical of the Martin Family he was not listed in the wills of either of his parents, and he is not mentioned later in the book. He may have died young. Martin, Samuel (I1949)
849 This Samuel Martin may be the same as Samuel Martin (I27).  Martin, Samuel (I726)
850 This Sarah Knapp is usually listed as the daughter of Samuel Knapp and Hannah Secor. At the suggestion of Laurel Steffes, a descendant of Samuel and Hannah, I have placed Sarah as the daughter of Samuel's brother Solomon and Sarah Mills for the following reasons: 1. Sarah Knapp Holbrook's son Solomon Holbrook and her daughters and their spouses Achsa Holbrook (unmarried), Sally Holbrook (m. David Wells Tower), Harriet Holbrook (m. Isaac William Tower), Mary Ann Holbrook (m. Jonathan Miller) Nancy Holbrook (m. Jerome Palmer) along with two Palmer children were listed among the heirs and next of kin in the probate papers of their presumed grandfather Solomon Knapp. It is hard to understand why that would be true if they were not Solomon's grandchildren. (See transcript of the will below.) Sarah herself was not named among the heirs in Solomon's will, probably because she had died before Solomon wrote his will on 5 Apr 1848. 2. Sarah was not named in Samuel's will nor were her children or grandchildren even though Sarah was still living in 1838 when Samuel wrote his will as shown by the sale of her land in Watertown to her son Solomon K Holbrook in 1839. 3. Sally Holbrook was a member of Solomon's church, the Mayfield and Broadalbin Baptist Church (Sally was dropped from the church in 1839). 4. Achsa and her sons Marcus and George W. Holbrook lived for many years with Solomon Knapp's son David B. Knapp. 5. Solomon K. Holbrook's name is sometimes given as Solomon Knapp Holbrook and Sarah Holbrook's name as Sarah Mills Holbrook (though sometimes as Sarah Antoinette), i.e., their middle names were the surnames of their presumed grandparents. 6. Solomon Knapp loaned money to his presumed grandson Solomon K. Holbrook.  Knapp, Sarah (Sally) (I2065)
