151 Benjamin HEMINGWAY, ME
Joshua | Sylvanus | Josiah

I'm interested in corresponding with others researchingHemenways/Hemingways of the area that became Waldo and Knox Counties inMaine. I descend from Benjamin, who married Abigail Wilson at Camden,Jan. 1814. I believe others at Camden and Searsmont (Joshua, Sylvanus,and Josiah) were his brothers. All present in 1850 Census.

[Note from mm: Benjamin was probably the son of Thomas (Silvenas, JoshuaJr., Joshua, Joshua, Ralph) b. Feb 18, 1753; Private, Mass; d. February6, 1847; m. Elizabeth ...; children born in Royalston, Mass: Joshua b.1777 | Betsey (STOCKWELL) b. 1799 | John b. 1781 m.

Marriage: Elisabeth Eib 6 Dec 1747, Warwick Township, Lancaster Co., PA 1
Died: After 1770, Lancaster Co., PA

General Notes:

I have made the assumption that Edward's Son is this David based on:

1) Edward's Will lists two grand children Elisabeth and Edward, both ofwhom are names of David's older children, althought why he would notbequeath anything to the oldest son, I don't know, althought the secondson is named after him and the older son may have died or no longer beenliving at home.

2) Both Hilton's were located in Warwick Twp.

Hello Ellie -
Check with Charles Bailey at the Odd Fellow Cemetery in Tamaqua. I thinkI saw

address and that of the cemetery is:

West Broad Street
Tamaqua PA 18252

His residence is on the edge of the cemetery.

I'd give you his phone number, but I've misplaced my Schuylkill Countyphone
book. Anyway it's almost impossible to catch him by phone. If you docall,
you'll get a message to leave your number and he'll call you back collect.
Maybe somone else will look up the number for you, if I don't find itfirst.

Walter Reed Jenkins' screed mentions that Oscar Douglas JENKINS belongedto the Native American Party - definition:
(U. S. Politics), a party, about 1854, which
opposed the influence of foreign-born citizens, and those
supposed to owe allegiance to a foreign power.

(U. S. Politics), a party of
principles similar to those of the American party. It
arose about 1843, but soon died out.

186 from Charles D. (Chaz) Andrews:
Before she died, I talked with my mother about Mame Keenan & about my grandmother's (Sarah Elizabeth Quay) middle name. My grandmother's middle name was given to her in honor of the woman who raised Mame. So it's definately Alexander & Elizabeth who raised Mame. I also have further proof of this since Alexander & Elizabeth are buried right next to Mame's grandmother in Phoenixville. Mame was left with her uncle because her father (George A. Keenan) moved to California to be a horse trainer after her mother (Annie Graham--I can't find her at all, this is from my mother's memory) died in childbirth. George later remarried and had children who later visited Mame when my mother was a child. I found George in Phoenixville, listed with his mother Margaret, who came over as a widow from Ireland through New York with some grown children. I found him in later censuses in California with his ever growing family out there. Margaret Keenan (Mame's grandmother) is buried in Morris Cemetery right next to Alexander and Elizabeth Keenan.

William, Esther, Henry, Gideon, Mary, Rhoda came from NC to White CountyTN by 1810. Wm. and Henry received grants of land in Tenn. Henry built abrick home near Sparta as did Gideon. These homes still stand in goodrepair (1999) today. William built a log home near the Duck Pond.Willim's home was being lived in until it burned a few years ago. Theearlist marriage record located for White County is for William's sister,Rhoda, who married John Puckett Dec. 4, 1809. The earliest record ofGideon in White County that I have in my records is a deed between Henryand Gideon dated Jun. 18, 1822.

There is an undocumented story that one of the Lydas was a BritishLoyalist during the Revolutionary War and that his last wish was to beburied in his British Uniform. According to the story, he was buried inthat uniform. Another undocumented story was that Andrew Lyda was aGerman Hessian soldier who liked America so well he decided to remainhere after the close of the war. Some Lydas fought for the American causeso these stories may not be true.

197 Daniel was a mason.

At some time during the period of the Civil War, Bushwhackers came toDaniel Lyda's house with the intention of killing him. The Bushwhackershad their heads covered to protect their identity. However, Danielrecognized the voices of some of the men and called them by name. SinceDaniel's family was in the room and had heard Daniel call them by name,the Bushwhackers left without harming him. The daughter, Emily relatedthis to her family many times as I am sure Alice and Katherine did also.

The Lydas raised sheep and would shear them for wool to weave blanketsand garments for the family. At this time there are four Lydagreat-granddaughters, Virginia Geer Austin, Lyda Hays Martin Briggs,Rubye Officer Brogden and Martha Stewart Geyer. Each of them has a smallpiece of one of those blankets made from sheep on Daniel Lyda's farm.These small pieces of natural colored wool with a deep red stripe aretreasured items. Bark or berries were used to make the red dye. VirginiaGeer Austin also has a quilt that Amanda Meek Lyda had when she startedhousekeeping in 1851.
