52 Relatives in 2018 #15 Abigail Tilton Fillmore Bell (1679-1727)

Abigail Tilton Fillmore Bell

relationship: Her 8x-great Grandmother

Abigail married twice – John Fillmore and Robert Bell.  She had 7 children, one being illegitimate.

Information below taken from Roots Web for John Fillmore https://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=pusch&id=I126662

“December 25, 1711, Abigail Fillmore of Beverly, widow, personally appearing in court, confess herself guilty of ye crime of fornication and charged Timothy Cunningham of Boston, coaster , of being ye father of ye child unlawfully begotten of her body, and made oath of same. It s considered that she pay a fine of ____(no sum mentioned) and costs and stand committed till performed.” (Beverly Historical Records)

Quoting from Charles L. Fillmore:

“This child, a daughter, was named Ruth Fillmore. It is quite possible that Timothy Cunningham, coaster, was an acquaintance, perhaps a former companion or friend, of John, the Mariner . He may have come to extend his sympathy and offer his help to Abigail. Perhaps he came to o often and stayed too late. There is nothing to indicate that Abigail was a promiscuous woman. Despite the unfortunate incident it is apparent that her eldest son, John, held her in high esteem, as did also, her mother, Deliverance (Shaw) Tilton.”

“By her will, made 9 November 1730 and proved 2 July 1733, Deliverance Tilton left to her three sons, 5 s. apiece. To the three sons of son-in-law Robert Bell, deceased, 5 s. apiece. T o her daughter, Sarah, 10 pounds. To John and Ebenezer Philmore and Ruth Kennison, children of my daughter, Abigail, deceased, 10 pounds each.” (Taken from Essex Probate, 319, 393)

Quoting from Charles L. Fillmore:

“Apparently Abigail did not stand condemned indefinitely in the eyes of all. On 7 November 1717, she married Dr. Robert Bell, a physician and widower, who had come from Scotland to Ipswich. The Bells removed to Norwich, Conn., about 1720. Dr. Bell is listed among the physicians of Norwich, and is referred to as, “the father-in-law of Captain John Fillmore.” (A different use of the term from that in present day practice.)” (Information from History of Norwich , Connecticut, by Francis Manwaring Caulkins, pp 224, 634)

Dr. Robert and Abigail Bell had three children, Samuel, born Ipswich, 1719, Benjamin and Deliverance born in Norwich.

Dr. Robert Bell, died on August 23, 1727 and his wife, Abigail died on November 13, 1727.

Quoting from Charles L. Fillmore:

“Abigail (Tilton) Fillmore-Bell, twice married, twice widowed, the mother of three children by each husband, and mother of a child of ‘sorrow’ rather than of ‘love’ entered eternal rest at the age of 48 years 6 months.”

Administration Estate of John, the Mariner, Fillmore:

“March 17, 1722/23, Samuel Balch and Jona. Raymens of Beverly and Levi John Porter of Wenham appraise house and land formerly John Fillmore’s at 45 pounds, and judged it could not be divided.”

“March 19, 1722/23, Abigail Bell, alias Fillmore, relinquishes administration to her son John , carpenter, on his father John’s estate, his sureties were Abram Tilton, carpenter and Wm Young all of Ipswich. John brings in the estate free and clear of all charges. He is entitled to two shares, Eben one, Abigail one and the widow’s thirds. John redeems and buys the whole.”

52 Relatives in 2018 #13 Anna Jewell Berry (1836-1865)

Anna Jewell Berry

relationship:  Her 3x great-Grandmother

This grandmother only lived to be 29 years old.  I’m assuming there was some sort of sickness in the area at the time of her death – daughter Welthy died the day before her and son John died less than 2 weeks after her.

Some time between birth (1836) and 1850, her family moved from New York to Benton County, Iowa, United States.  She remained in this county until her death.

birth: 19 May 1836 in New York, United States

parents:  David Jewell (1802-1872) and Rachel Griswold Jewell (1800-1842)

marriage:  9 April 1856 in Benton County, Iowa, United States

spouse:  Robert Berry (1827-1911)

children:

Alice Berry (1856-1949) married Adam Alexander Fetherkile (1852-1937)
Nancy Jane (Jennie) Berry (1859-1939) married John F Fetherkile, brother of Alex (1856-1937)
Welthy Berry (1860 – 8 August 1865)
John Berry (1862 – 21 August 1865)

death:  9 August 1865 in Benton County, Iowa, United States

burial: Kisling Cemetery,  Center Point, Benton County, Iowa, United States

52 Ancestors in 2018 #12 Lottie Smith Fetherkile (1887-1926)

Lottie Maud Smith Fetherkile

relationship:  Her great-grandmother

IMG_4447 (2)
Taken about 1905/1906 before 1st child born but after wedding.

Lottie was born in Goodland, Indiana.  By 1900, the family was living in Urbana, Benton County, Iowa where she married, had 3 children, buried one child, and died.  When we visited the “town” house, we found her old photo album in the attic.  (Grandma and Grandpa Fetherkile had a farm with a house and a separate house at the town limits.)  Unfortunately, we don’t know who these people are.  I always assumed when we brought it home, my grandmother identified the people.  She may have but no record remains.  I’ve made a couple of posts of some of the pictures from this album.

The story surrounding her death is quite sad.  My grandmother was arriving home on the train for a break while attending Teachers College.  Grandma Lottie was waiting for her on the platform.  Just before the train pulled in, Grandma Lottie collapsed.   Grandma got of the train to a flurry of people crowded around someone – to find out it was her mother. Grandma believed she had an aneurysm.  The death certificate states cause of death was apoplexy.

[apoplexy = any sudden death that began with a sudden loss of consciousness, especially one in which the victim died within a matter of seconds after losing consciousness, wikipedia]

birth:  29 January 1887 in Goodland, Newton County, Indiana, United States

parents:  Andrew Holt Smith (1854-1914) and Katherine (Kate) Mae Burrell Smith

marriage:  13 September 1905 in Urbana, Benton County, Iowa, United States

spouse:  Harry Cecil Fetherkile (1884-1980)

52 Ancestors in 2018 #11 Elizabeth Tilley Howland (1607-1687)

Elizabeth Tilley Howland

relationship:  10th great-grandmother

Elizabeth is my Mayflower ancestor.   She sailed to the New World with her parents and an aunt and uncle.  All of them were Puritan Separatists.  All four of these relatives died during the first winter.  She was then taken in by the Carver family.  Then Mr. and Mrs. Carver died in the late spring of 1621, about 5 weeks apart.

Elizabeth’s future husband John Howland became her guardian as well as guardian for the other servants of the Carver’s (William Latham, age 11 and Desire Minter).

Elizabeth and her husband began their married life in Plymouth, moved to Duxbury, and then to Kingston.  She eventually moved in with her son Jabez after her husband died.  That house still exists and is believed to be the only house left that original Mayflower passengers lived in.
