4 "In the summer of 1827, Okunzhewug, an old woman, the wife of Kishkemun, the
principal chief of Torch Lake (Lac du Flambeau), a man superannuated and blind,
attended the treaty of Butte des Morts, bearing her husband's medal. She was
treated with the respect due to the character she represented, and ample
presents were direected to be given to her; among other things a handsome hat.
The latter article had been requested of her by a young Menomonie, and refused.
It is thought a general feeling of jealousy was excited by her good reception.
A number of the Menomonies went on her return route as far as the Clover
Portage, where she was last seen. Having never returned to her village, the
Chippewas attributed her death to the Menomonies. Her husband died soon
after; but she had numerous and influential relatives to avenge her real of
supposed murder. This is the account delivered by the Chippewas, and it is
corroborated by reports from the traders of that section of the country. Her
singular disappearance and secret death at the Clover Portage, is undisputed;
and whether caused or not by any agency of the Menomonies, the belief of such
agency, and that of the most direct kind, is fixed in the minds of the
Chippewas, and has furnished the basis of their subsequent acts in relation to
the Menominie hunting-parties who have visited the lower part of Chippewa
River. Two women belonging to one of these parties were killed be a Chippewa
war-party traversing that part of the country the ensuing year. The act was
disclaimed by them as not being intentional, and it was declared they supposed
the women to be Sioux. On a close inquiry, however, I found the persons who
committed this act were relatives of Okunzewug, which renders it probable that
the murder was intentionally perpetrated..."

Samuel was an M.P. for London 1640-1660. He was also one of the original patentees of lands in Massachusetts in 1628, and an officer in the Company; was an alderman of London and M. P., in 1640-41; took the covenant in 1643; in 1646 was appointed commissioner for the kindom of England for the conservation of peace with Scotland. His monument in King's chapel, Boston, New England, erected by Florentius Vassall in 1766, sets forth that he was "a steady and undaunted asserter of the liberties of England in 1628; he was the first who boldly refused to submit to the tax of tonnage and poundage, an unconstitutional claim of the crown arbitrarily imposed; for which (to the
ruin of his family) his goods were seized and his person imprisoned by the starcamber court......The parliament in July, 1641, voted him L10,445:12:2, for him damages, and resolved that " he should be further considered for his personal sufferings." Failing, however, to recover the amount of his damages, he petitioned parliament, January 23, 1657, showing that he had endured imprisonment for about sixteen years, and been stripped of his goods; that
despite the vote of parliament,he had not received one penny;" that L2,591;17;6 had been lent to the parliament by him in Ireland, in their great straights;" that L3,328;2;7 were due for the service of one of his ships; and
besides all this, another vessel-the Mayflower, had when laden and manned, been taken and made use of against the enemy "to the overthrow of his voyage and his great losse." His name headed the subscription list to raise money against the rebels in Ireland, and his whole life was indicative of the energy and liberaltiy which characterized many of his descendants. He had one son, John.

60 (The following was copied in part from the newspaper clipping that appeared at the time of her death. I thought it would be of interest to the rest of the Davison family. E.A.D. Simpson)

There is a Family History book in possession of the family which traces “THE DAVISONS” back as far as 1580, in SCOTLAND. (I would like to have a copy of that part.) Later they went to ENGLAND, and in 1639, Nicholas Davison, was sent from London to Charleston, Mass., as agent for Matthew Cradock, a merchant of London, England, who was appointed as the first governor of Mass., but who never came across the water.

Davison ancestors have participated in all of the Wars of this Country and in many directions branched out with honor to the family name. John P. Davison, (the one who later spelled his name Davidson), who was the youngest child and son of Asa Davison, was in the Mexican War, donated the ground west of Minonk, Ill., which comprises the Davison Cemetery.

Mrs. Elsie Lois Davison-McChesney, spent her childhood days in an atmosphere that now seems of another world. In those days, hay was cut with a scythe, and grain was cut with a cradle, and harvest time meant a gathering of neighbors to do the work and to enjoy the wonderful feasts that the good women folk would prepare. They spun their own yarn and wove their own cloth, and in the McChesney home now are articles of cloth that were made by Mrs. McChesney’s mother and aunt. (Sally Parks-Davison, and Fanny Parks.) Then and now seem centuries apart, yet here was a woman, with keen intellect intact to the last, who witnessed this almost unbelievable transition to the day of Radio, Air-transportation and similar marvelous developments.

She was survived by four children, Horace McChesney, of Lone Rock, Iowa; Edward McChesney of Minonk, Ill.; Mrs. Mary Elsie (W.R.O. Cothran), of Mason City, Iowa; and Mrs. Sara Lois (H.W.) Raynor, of What Cheer, Iowa. Her brother, Prosper Harvey Davison preceeded her in death several years ago. her husband, Jacob McChesney died August 28, 1917. They were the parents of six children.

From "The Burke and Alvord Memorial" Boutelle 1864:

"Richard Burke of Sudbury, MA
Born, supposed about the year 1640; died at Sudbury, MA 1693-4. He was probably of Anglo-Norman origin.
He owned land in Sudbury, MA, and also in Stow, MA. 'An indenture made between Henry Loker of Sudbury, Glover, and Hannah his wife, and Richard Burke of Sudbury, Oct. 24, 1670, witnesses that for a valuable sum or consideration Henry Loker and Hannah his wife have sold' &c., 'unto Ri Burke one hundred and thirty acres of land in Pompassitticut, and in the two miles last granted to the town of Sudbury.' [Reg Mid. Co., V7 p.243] ...

He was married at Sudbury, MA June 24, 1670, to Mary Parmenter, born Sudbury, MA (June 10, 1644?) (She was the daughter of John and Amy Parmenter, and grandaughter of Dea. John Parmenter, b. 1588 who was one of the first settlers of Sudbury in 1639?) She administered on her husband's estate, and afterwards married a Mr. Allen."

"Solomon Johnson (Solomon1), b. about 1627, d. at Sudbury 26 Aug 1690. He was an early proprietor of Lancaster, Ma., for in 1652 he deeded his forty acres in "Nashaway Plantation" (Middlesex Co. deeds v1 p41) to
Stephed Day for the three hundred acres (Middlesex Co. deeds v1 p42) excahnged in 1658 (Middlesex Co. deeds v13 p590) for his father's New Sudbury grant of one hundred forty acres, upon which last he probably lived. In 1664 he alienated a moiety of this one hundred forty acres (Middlesex Co. deeds v3 p325), but in 1685 possesed the seventy acres remaining, as a deed from Benjamin Crowe of Stow to Joseph Rice of Marlborough recites that the land sold (originally that of John Wood, Sr. and John Rutter, Sr.) is bounded southward with land of Solomon Johnson, Jr. He married twice: first Hannah ___, who d. 4 June 1685; and secondly, 1 Feb 1686-7, "Hannah Crefts of Natomy" (Watertown records, p. 96), perhaps the Hannah Johnson who married Thomas Frost 9 July 1691.

76 /Blette, dit Sorelle Pierre, was the grantee of Park lot 24, the patent
having been issued in 1834. He died in Owen Sound./
The earliest record concerning Pierre, is the appearance of his name on
the Surveyor General’s map of 8 June 1830. Later in August of that year,
he, and other recipients of land grants in return for service to the
Crown in the War of 1812, signed a petition objecting to the price they
were required to pay to obtain title to the lots.
Pierre and Louis Blette Sorel received land grants in the Military
Reserve on 23 August 1834; Pierre - Park Lot 26 and Louis Park Lot 24.
By 1843, Pierre had ownership of both lots.

/Blette, Louis, was the grantee of Park lot 26, the patent having been
issued in 1834./
There are no other local records pertaining to Louis other than the land
records. It does not appear he ever settled on his lot.

/Blette, Francois. Descendants of his are living in Parry Sound./
There are no records of a Francois living in this area other than a St.
Ann’s baptismal entry where he appears as a sponsor for Marie Blette’s
child in 1841, a time when Marie was known to be living in Owen Sound.

A “Sorelle” appears in the 1820 US census, Michilimackinac, Territory of
Michigan. He is living with an “unnaturalized citizen”. Is this Pierre?

There are other Blette Sorels who appear in the church registers after
1835 but none of them appears to have settled in the area.

Pierre BLETTE DIT PIEROT / SOREL was born about 1810 in Fort William,
Ontario. He lived in Parry Sound, although he was enumerated in the 1861
census in Penetanguishene, Simcoe County, Ontario.

Pierre BLETTE DIT PIEROT / SOREL and Louise LABATTE were married on 23
July 1832 in Simcoe County, Ontario in a civil marriage. The witnesses
were Francois Sicard and Dedine Revol. They were married in a religious
ceremony February 1836 recorded in St. Ann's Church register,
Penetanguishene, Ontario. Louise LABATTE (daughter of Louis Georges
LABATTE and Louise/ Louisa CADOTTE) was buried on 3 September 1848 in
St. Ann's Cemetery, Penetanguishene, Ontario. Pierre BLETTE DIT PIEROT /

Wright Samuel Brown.(Samuel Wright Brown?) was the first son of Deacon Timothy Brown and third wife, Hannah (Burke) Wright of Swanzey, Cheshire County, NH. Hannah was the daughter of Jonas Burke and his wife, Hannah Johnson of Stowe, Middlesex county, MA and widow of Cyprian Wright of Rutland, Worcester Co., MA, son of Capt. Samuel Wright and Mary Stevens. Wright S. Brown is a descendant of William and Susannah White and their son, Resolved, of the Mayflower and is written up in, "The Mayflower Families Through Five Generations, Vol. 13, p. 72, William White."

Wright was born in Ware River Parish, Hampshire county, MA on 1 Jul 1748 when the family had to quickly leave Swanzey to return to his grandfather, Thomas Brown's family farm in MA to avoid the savagery of the French-Indian wars. Swanzey was burned to the ground in the spring of 1747. Timothy and Hannah did not return to Swanzey until sometime in early 1752 after the wars ceased to be a problem. Wright and his siblings,Thankful and Joel grew to adulthood in Swanzey.

Wright had 2 half-brothers; Ephraim, b. 1 Feb 1733/34; and Timothy, b. 16 Apr 1742 and 4 half-sisters; Anna T. b. 23 Apr 1730; Mable, b. 28 Jan 1732/33; Silence, b. 19 Oct 1737 and Ruth, b. 26 Dec 1742 by his father's first marriage to Thankful Olmstead, daughter of Jabez Olmstead and Thankful Barnes of Deerfield and Ware, MA. Wife, Thankful d. 6 Oct 1743.

Timothy, Wright's father, remarried on 8 Apr 1744 to Keziah Cooley Goss, widow of his second cousin, Capt. Philip Goss. She died within a year. He then remarried for a third and final time on 27 Feb 1745 to widow, Hannah Burke Wright. She brought three sons by Cyprian Wright into this marriage; William, Samuel and John. Samuel and John required guardians appointed them. William had to be the age of 14 or older. John died at the age of 10.

Timothy Brown and Hannah Burke Wright had three children of record; Thankful, b. 1746 in Swanzey, NH then called Lower Ashulot; Wright S. b. 1 Jul 1748 in Ware River Parish, and Joel, b. 1750, also born in Ware. (A Hannah was also born, mentioned in the History of Yates co., NY but no recored has been found.)

Wright and Hannah Newland married about 1770 but no record of their marriage has been found. It is not know if she was living in Swanzey before they were married. Also, no records of their children's births have been found either except Isaac, bapt. on 18 Jan 1784, by Rev. John Dempster in Stillwater. This is the first date found for their arrival in Stillwater, then Albany County, NY.

Wright and Hannah, probably the daughter of Joseph Newland and Abigail Babbitt of Norton, Bristol County, MA, left Swanzey, NH probably in the spring of 1783 and relocated to Stillwater after they sold their adjoining farm to Wright's half-brother, William Wright, the above son of Hannah and Cyprian Wright in June of 1783.

When Wright and Hannah sold their property in Swanzey, one of the witnesses to the contract was Rial (Arial) Newland of Stillwater. By 1789, when the farm was paid off, Hannah's name did not appear on the signing off of the property. It is presumed she died shortly after the birth of their son, Arial Newland Brown, born about 1788/89 in Stillwater. Wright remarried Bethiah (Bertha)Olney about 1790. They had at least four children together. Only two are known of this marriage; Wright S. Brown, Jr. b. 1 Jun 1796, in Stillwater who was the second child of the four born. He was born on the same battle field where his father fought earlier according to his obituary and Sarah Marie, b. abt 1799 probably also in Stillwater.

At age 28 years, Wright fought under the command of Col. Joseph Hammond of Swanzey, Cheshire County, NH; Col. Nahum Baldwin's regiment, and under the company of Captain John Houghton of Keene. Wright was "mustered in" on September 22, 1776 with his group in Keene, Cheshire County, NH. He served two and a half months at York and drawing a salary of nine pounds, eight shillings and four pellowing. He participated in the battles at White Plains and at Stillwater, Albany County, NY. He was discharged and left his company from Swanzey, Cheshire County, NH.

A Revolutionary War plaque was placed in City Hill Cemetery, Torrey, Yates County, NY by the D.A. R. commemorating Wright Brown's tour of duty in the war. The Revolutionary War grave marker was placed in the Wright Brown family plot after many inquiries into his war record. The D.A.R. marker mistakenly recorded Wright's birth date as 1747 instead of 1748 and also the commanding officer as corporal instead of Colonel in the Rev. War. (Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots, Vol. 1,p. Serial: 12978; Vol 1.)

"Although he had served seven years, Wright sternly refused to accept a pension for his services, to the day of his death, from personal pride and early educational influences" according to his son, Wright, Jr's obituary. Without pension records the DAR had a difficult time tracing his record of service. I don't know where his son got the seven years of service unless his father participated in the French-Indian Wars as well along with his father, Deacon Timothy Brown.

Wright and Hannah Newland married about 1770 but no record of their marriage has been found. It is not known if she was living in Swanzey before they were married. Also no records of their children's births have been found either except Isaac, bapt. on 18 Jan 1784, by Rev. John Dempster in Stillwater. This is the first date found for their arrival in Stillwater.

Wright and wife, Hannah Newland, probably the daughter of Joseph Newland and Abigail Babbitt of Norton, Bristol County, MA, left Swanzey, NH probably in the spring of 1783 and relocated to Saratoga, then Albany County, NY after they sold their adjoining farm to Wright's half-brother, William Wright in June of 1783. William was one of three sons, of Hannah Burke Wright, widow of Cyprian Wright of Rutland, Worcester Co., MA. She after Cyprian's death became the third wife of Deacon Timothy Brown and had three children on record by him; Thankful, Wright and Joel. Other children have not been found but there probably were more.


The son's obituary goes on to say Wright, Sr. fought along side his father, Timothy in the French-Indian Wars but again that would not have been possible because the French-Indian wars were over in that part of the country in 1752, four years after Wright was born. Father, Timothy, died, 3 Jan. 1770 in Swanzey. No record of a will in Cheshire Co., has been found found to date.

Wright,Sr., his wife, Bertha and Wright Jr. and family are buried together in the Brown family plot in City Hill Cemetery in Torrey, Yates County, NY. Adjoining the plot is the grave of Dorcas Annable. She may have been a daughter of Wright's, married to an Annable. Wright was a witness to the will of Ephraim Annable of Providence, Saratoga co. NY. Perhaps Dorcas married a son of his.

Samuel Right Brown, traditional thought to be the son of Wright, Sr.,by his first marriage, married Eunice M. Annable, daughter of Isaac Annable (Annibal) and Lydia Peckham Delano. Isaac and Lydia also lived in Stillwater, having moved there sometime after 1790 but before 1800. Wright was a witness to the will of Ephraim Annable of Providence. This Ephraim, b. 1765 in NS, was the son of Isaac. Perhaps Dorcas married a son of his.

Wright and his 1st wife, Hannah Newland, probably the daughter of Joseph Newland and Abigail Babbitt of Norton, Bristol County, MA, left Swanzey, NH in the spring of 1783 and relocated to Stillwater, then Albany County, NY. They sold their adjoining farm to Wright's half-brother, William Wright. William was one of three sons, of Hannah Burke Wright, widow of Cyprian Wright of Rutland, Worcester Co., MA. She after Cyprian's death became the third wife of Deacon Timothy Brown and had three children on record by him; Thankful, Wright and Joel. Other children have not been found but there probably were more.

When Wright and Hannah sold their property in Swanzey, one of the witnesses to the contract was Rial (Arial) Newland of Stillwater. By 1789, when the farm was paid off, Hannah's name did not appear on the signing off of the property. It is presumed she died shortly after the birth of their son, Arial Newland Brown, born about 1788/89 in Stillwater. Wright remarried a woman by the name of Bethiah (Bertha) about 1790. They had at least four children together. Only two are know of this marriage; Wright S. Brown, Jr.
b. 1 Jun 1796, in Stillwater on the same battle field where his father fought earlier, and Sarah Marie, b. abt 1799 probably also in Stillwater.

No land records are recorded for Wright in Stillwater, only taxes paid on personal property. According to a researcher on the area, this does not mean he didn't own property there. 1790 census for Saratoga Wright is listed as Wright Bacon.

In the 1800 Census, Wright and family are shown living in Saratoga, Saratoga County. He may have moved to Stillwater sometime after 1800.

In 1808, Wright, Bertha and family moved to Benton, Ontario County, which later became Milo, Yates County, NY and living in "The Gore." He purchased 40 acres very close to Lake Keuka's shore. After a few years, he purchased more land and continued to live on the same farm until his death on 25 Apr. 1837. His wife proceeded him in death by 12 years. She died 5 Mar 1825.

The census for Yates County shows Wright living in Benton in 1810 and in Milo in the years of 1820, 25, and 1835. The place of residence was the same, just the name of the village was changed.

According to genealogical records in "The History of Swanzey, NH, 1734-1890, p. 301" by Hon. Benjamin Reade, Published by The Salem Press in Salem, MA, 1892, p. 301, Wright, son of Timothy, had a child who died on 4 March 1780 and a son, Joel, who died on 21 March 1780. This may have been due to smallpox. His mother, Hannah, succumb to smallpox about the same time.

Wright and wife, Hannah Newland probably left Swanzey in the Spring of 1783 when he sold his adjoining property to his half-brother, William Wright. Both Wright Brown and his wife, Hannah, signed the land sale. A Rial Newland of Stillwater, NY witnessed the sale of the property. The final land deal was completed in 1787, but signed only by Wright Brown in Stillwater, Albany Co. NY. This is a good indication that Hannah had died between 1784 and 1787, after the first agreement to sell the property in 1783.

A child, Isaac was baptized in Stillwater on January 18, 1784. This is the last known living record of Hannah to date. No death records or grave can be found in Stillwater.

In 1793, Wright was back in Swanzey, selling more of his land to a Benjamin Hewes. The document says he is of Swanzey. He perhaps moved back after the death of Hannah until 1800 when he is back to New York and was remarried to Bethiah Olney Brown, known as Bertha.

NY census records for 1800 show that Wright was living in Providence, had was one male under 10yr. (Wright S. Brown, Jr.), 1 male between the ages of 10-16, (Ariel N.), one male between the ages of 16-26 (Isaac), one male 45 yrs. and older,(Wright, Sr.), 2 females under 10 years of age,(Sarah Marie, 1 yr. and ?) 2 females from 10-16 yrs. of age,1 female from ages 16-26, and one female, 26-45 (Bertha/ Bethiah, his wife.)

In the "History of Yates County," Wright is mentioned as owning 40 acres in "the Gore", Milo, NY where he became a resident in 1808. According to land records, he bought the south half of lot number 17 in Benton, then in Ontario County, from Thomas and Mary Hathaway for the price of $140.00. The land purchased was witnessed by Lewis French and Arial N.(Newland) Brown.

The 1800 NY Federal Census show a Calvin and JamesBrown, both living in Stillwater, Albany County. Are these his children or brothers? A William Brown was also in Saratoga, Albany County, as was a Thomas. (A part of Albany county became Saratoga county in 1790.)


Wright Brown is listed in the tax list of 1787 in Saratoga district.

On June 5, 1803, Wright S. Brown witnessed the signing of the will of Russell Allington of Northcumberland, Saratoga County, NY along with Andrew Mc Carty and William Angle, Jr.

On April 3, 1805, Wright witnessed the signing of a will for Oliver Perkins. Ephraim Annable and H. Metcalfe were also witnesses. His connection to the above people is unknown. They could be relatives or just friends.

On the Wright Brown monument in the City Hill Cemetery there is another name which can not be deciphered, but is a daughter born ?/8/1820 and died Feb 24, 1884. Who is she?

1813: In Benton, Ontario County, Wright owned a house and 41 acres. It also mentions he was worth $300. and taxed $.21.

1816: In Benton, Ontario County, Wright still owned a house and 40 acres, valued at $400. and taxed $1.4p.

1818: Tax roll for Milo, then Ontario County, listed Wright Brown's total estate including personal property as having 342 acres and paying a tax of $1.02. Arial Newland (N.) Brown, is listed as owning 304 acres and owing $.90.

1818: Arial sold land to Wright and by 1819, Wright is shown as owning 548 acres. Arial no longer lived in Milo. He sold Wright 206 acres. What Arial did with the other 98 acres needs to be researched. Arial moved to Ontario, Chemung Co., also a short time in VT and then to Cato, Manitowoc Co., WI by the late 1850s where he died late in life.
