born in Pottsville, Schuykill County, Pennsylvania, and after hermarriage to

65 At one time was proprietor of the old White Hall at Church and Gay st.

Great ad in the American Republican newspaper placed by him September 9,1851:

A Chance For $5 - Whoever will return to White Hall Hotel, West Chester,or leave information so that the owner can get, a Large Setter Dog, allwhite, with the exception of a yellow spot on the rump, yellow around theright eye, yellow right ear, and left ear partly so, and having a collararound his neck with the inscription thereon, "I am Tom Quay's dog, whosedog are you?" - will receive a reward of $5.


He may have had more than one wife. Daughter Sarah Ann died at 6 in 1852,born in 1845, 7 years before his marriage to Elizabeth Williams, and hisother daughter is not born until 1854. His wife Elizabeth lists only onebirth (still living) in the 1900 census. So either it's 2 marriages, orSarah Ann was the daughter of a different Thomas D. Quay.

76 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.

81 Bit of a problem with dates on George, or else with the local media.Reported in the Daily Local of 7/4/1917 that he celebrated his 76thbirthday. A year later, 7/16/1918 he celebrated his 66th! In each articlehe is listed as the engineer of the laundry at the county home inEmbreeville, a very specific job. Seems to refer to the same person. Hisobituary in the Local on 10/8/1923 he is listed as 70 years old. Hisheadstone gives his date of death as 10/7/1923 at age 71 yrs, 3 mnth. and1 day.

So in order, we have birth years of 1841, 1852, and 1853. 1852-53 seemsto fit much better with his siblings' birth dates, but I don't know whichone is accurate. Going with the headstone.

82 Born as Jacob Welcomer, changed his name to Fink in 1870's to fight inSpanish American War? Indian War? Tombstone has a Veteran of Sp/Am. Warplaque on it, but he would have been almost 40, and the story goes that he changed his name because he was too young to enlist. Did he fight inboth wars? Fink was his mother's maiden name. His widow asked Ray Fink to change his name back to Welcomer, which he did in 1969


Joseph Whitcome of the right age in Ogle county Illinois in the 1880 census very close to a Jacob Fink who is working on a farm. Says that Jacob is 24 but he would only be 18 at the time.

89 Both Thomas Jr. and Jeremiah served in the Revolutionary War in CaptainBaldiís company of the Braunsweig (Brunswick) Township Berks CountyMilitia, commanded by Col. John Michael Lindemuth, brother of myancester, John Wolf Lindemuth. In the roster of April 23, 1780, Jeremiahis listed in the 2nd Class and Thomas in the 5th.

Thomas Jr. was among the more ambitious of the family. According toMunsell, he was the first settler in what became Minersville, arrivingthere about March 1793 and building a house and sawmill and later atavern-distillery which became known as the "Red House" and was locatedon the southside of Sunbury Street on the present site of St. Vincent dePaul Church. He operated this tavern until his death on Nov. 13, 1813.Some records indicate a birth date of 1767 for Maria Barbara, and that isconsistent with the information contained in the Stimne de Volks obit(..aged 81 in 1848). However, it does not favorably compare with theknown date of marriage of her parents and I think the obit age may be inerror. They had 11 children. Their daughter, Susanna, born Sept. 18,1793, was the first child born in Minersville. The first marriage in thecommunity was that of their son Jacob.

Thomas Jr. was the first justice of the peace appointed for Minersville.On the re-election of Gov. Simon Snyder, Jacob was appointed a JP forhaving cast the first vote for Snyder in opposition to his father (seeMunsell).

Thomas and Maria were apparently members of Friedens (Keims/Repps)Pineswamp Church, Norwegian Township, for I recently found the following:

Thomas Ried, sponsor for baptism of Margareta, daughter of Peter andSusannah Tillman (Dillman in 1820 census), born Feb. 1, 1808, bap. Aug.17, 1811;

Jacob Ried (son of Thomas Jr.?), sponsor for baptism of Daniel, s/o PeterTillman, Aug. 17, 1811;

And, Thomas Ried and wife Maria sponsors for baptism of Joseph, s/oNathaniel and Elizabeth Threler, Oct. 20, 1811, born Sept. 12, 1811.

Though Thomas Jr. was probably the most prominent of the children, he wasnot the only one to leave his mark on his community:

90 Both Thomas Jr. and Jeremiah served in the Revolutionary War in CaptainBaldiís company of the Braunsweig (Brunswick) Township Berks CountyMilitia, commanded by Col. John Michael Lindemuth, brother of myancester, John Wolf Lindemuth. In the roster of April 23, 1780, Jeremiahis listed in the 2nd Class and Thomas in the 5th.

Jeremiah Reed, along with Col. Lindemuth and his son Michael Jr., allreceived depreciation pay for service with the Continental line duringthe Revolutionary War (Pages 254-270, Vol. IV, 5th Series, PA Archives).


Equally as promiment as his brother Thomas was Jeremiah , son of Thomasand Margaret, born abt 1760, died August 1817 in Manheim Township wherehe operated a tavern. According to his will (Sch. Co. Will Book 1, p.41)he had sons Thomas and James to whom he left the tavern. The will alsomentions daughters Phoebe and Esther but not his wife, who may have beendeceased at the time. Interestingly, it also mentions a Magdalena Weaver,"..considered his wife, though they were not married," who was to receive13 pounds annually, three rooms and two cows, and his children by her,Sarah, Jeremiah and Polly. Executors were Daniel Dreibelbies, JacobKrebs, H.B. Hubley and Daniel Graeff. Witnesses were Michael Kantner (forwhom Jeremiah had been appointed guardian in 1803) and William Dreher.The will is dated Aug. 15, 1817.
