COMMENT: The Union Chapel and Hinthorn Cemetery, located on the banks of Lake Bloomington, McLean County, IL holds a significant place in the history of the Hinthorn(e) family. The following two articles provide information about the history of the church and cemetery.

CHURCH_AFFILIATION: Lake Chapel Service To Center on Mural
Services at Hinthorn Union Chapel at Lake Bloomington Sunday will be focused on a mural of the Last Supper, an itinerant sign painter's gift to the church some years ago.

History has it that George Swan of Peoria offered to paint a picture for the church in return for a pair of overalls, his board, paints, and whisky. The offer was accepted and he was given a small Sunday school card of Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper" to copy, the Rev. Frank Breem director of East Bay Camp, said.

"What took Da Vinci 10 years to do, he did in a week - very crudely of course," Mr. Breen added. Swan died a couple years later while still in his 20s, a victim of alcoholism.

The Sunday service will center on interpreting the picture in song and story. Mr. Breen will lead the meditation on the four groupings of disciples in the painting, and the meditation on Christ will be led by the Rev. Roger Leham, associate pastor of the Cemtral Christian Church of Danville.

[Note: the article is headed by a picture of the mural and the altar.

CHURCH_AFFILIATION: Loyal Friends Restore Chapel By June Simpson
A country chapel at the south edge of Lake Bloomington owes its restoration to a few women with a strong sense of family tradition.

Hinthorn Union Chapel, built in the first decade of the twentieth century, had ceased to be used for church services in the 1940s.

In 1954 a ladies aid was formed with only six active members. Many of these women were decendants of the Hinthorn and Vandegraft families, pioneers in the Lake Bloomington, Hudson area.

Prime Mover in the restoration of the church interior was the late Mrs. Emmett Hinthorn of 1203 N. Park. She served as the first president of the Ladies Aid. Assisting her was Mrs. Henry Geiger of Lexington.

Mrs. Hinthorn's daughter, Mrs. Alberta Johnson of the Park address, is carrying on her work.

Mrs. Hinthorn's other three daughters, Mrs. Dale Jennings of 1405 W. Graham, Mrs. Francis Canull of 107 S Linden, Normal, and Mrs. Tom Gaffney of R R 3, are also active members of the society.

Land for the cemetery, adjoining the church, was donated on June 1, 1887, by Charles E. Cox, Effie D. Cox, J.W. Aldrich, Flora S. Aldrich, Jackson Vandegraft and Mary Vandegraft. Jackson Vandegraft was the great grandfather of Mrs. Johnson and her sisters.

Land was donated as a free burial ground for descendants of the donors, and for members of the community.

The chapel is called Hinthorn because a member of that family was the first person buried there.

By 1958, after four years of staging ham and chicken suppers and ice cream socials, there was enough money to restore the interior of the nondenominational church. It was wired, lighting fixtures were purchased, floors were treated for termites, sanded and finished, carpeting was bought for aisles and altar, stoves were put in, roofing was completed and draperies purchased.

All this was made possible through the efforts of these few women.

There is no congregation at the church though church services are held in the summer time by the Rev. Frank Breen and Robert Johnson. Persons from the East Bay area attend.

The Ladies Aid Society will hold an ice cream social on July 29 from 4 to 8 p.m. Funds from this will be used to paint the interior of the church.

Note: the article above is accompanied by six pictures

  • Picture 1; frontal view of chapel-captioned, Nondenominatiol Chapel Was Built at Turn of Century.
  • Picture 2; four women inside chapel-captioned, Decendants of Jackson Vandegraft include four sisters, Mrs. Jennings, Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Canull, and Mrs. Gaffney. They presented the planter above as a memorial for their mother.
  • Picture 3; two women-captioned, Mrs. Ed Weber, left is president of the society. Right is Mrs. Charles Arbuckle whose father cared for the cemetery and church.
  • Picture 4; view of cemetery-captioned, Lake Bloomington Lies to North of Chapel Cemetery.
  • Picture 5; Large painting of The Last Supper-captioned, Painting of the Last Supper was done in the church by an itinerant drunkard, who for the paint, overalls and liquor, painted the huge work in one week.
  • Picture 6; view of large head stone-captioned, Jackson Vandegraft, who lies in the chapel yard was an original donor.

Asenath (Arsenah) Conger & Thomas Goldsmith

I have the following information from: Becker, John (1994). "Goldsmith: A Genealogy Becker, born in 1632, great grandson of Tabitha Goldsmith (1840-1930)." Becker Associates, Concord, Ontario. October 1994. ISBN 0-919387-25-X

Asenath (Arsenah) CONGER b: 22 Dec 1755, Piscataway NJ. dau of David Conger and Rachel Willson (Wilson) m: Thomas Goldsmith c1776 (son of Thomas Goldsmith and Phoebe Gilbert)

Asenath & Thomas Goldsmith removed to Canada in 1786 with two children (Stephen and Rachel) and with Asenath's parents - David & Rachel Conger. Asenath and the children traveled with the Conger family while Thomas struggled to herd cattle through the Wilderness - and losing all but one heifer.

They eventually received land grants in Hallowell Twp., Prince Edward Co., Midland District.

When the first Methodist church was built in Hallowell near Picton in 1809 it was built on the corner of David Conger's farm. The church, known as Whites Chapel, still stands today as an Historical Monument. Stephen Goldsmith, the oldest son of Thomas (UE) and grandson of David Conger contributed his labor as a young man to the building of this chapel and his efforts are recorded in the "day book" kept by Stephen Conger for the expenses of building the chapel.

I also have a note that David Conger's name was struck off U.E. List: OC 28 Feb 1805. - I think that was listed in Reid.

I recommend Becker's work. I received a copy through interlibrary loan. Becker is descended through Thomas and Asenath's first born son Stephan who married Elizabeth Hagerman and also their daughter Sabra Ann Gardiner Goldsmith who married Richard R. Clute.

I have these notes because I'm trying to locate the ancestors of Eliza Goldsmith.
Eliza Goldsmith b. abt 1825. - died 3 Jan 1890 in her 65th year m: Jan 13, 1844 - Aaron Spike Marriage Certificate reads: I certify that I married Aaron Spike and Eliza Goldsmith, both of Portland this 13 of January 1844 By publication of Banns in presence of William Goldsmith and Hester A. Wortman as witness.
My Hand Robert Perry Esq. Witnesses Present - William Goldsmith, Hester A Wortman.

William could be father, brother or other male relation.Hester is unrelated as far as I have been able to determine.

Spike papers also have a reference to a John Goldsmith in Aaron's father's will c1840.

Aaron and Eliza named their children: Phoebe (Phebe Ann); William Bryan; Eliza Phadila Jane; and Mary Ida Maud Spike. William, Bryan, and Mary are all names in the Spike family - also Elizabeth. Phoebe, Phadila, Jane, Ida, & Maud are not found in previous generations of Spikes.

Do you have any information of the descendants of Thomas and Asenath, esp. sons John m: Phoebe Orser and Thomas m: Mary?

Becker makes a reference to a publication "The Descendants of David Conger" compiled by Beach Conger in 1968. I haven't seen a copy of the document yet.

Roy J. Kyger

Born - 1882
Died - 1959

RESIDENCES: 316 Chandler, (probably in Danville, IL)

RECOLLECTIONS: Kyger's Mill Gone But Not Forgotten

Few and obscure are the landmarks today of pioneer days when settlers flooded into the rolling hills of the Midwest.

One of the familiar sights in this area a century ago was Kyger's Mill, near Grape Creek on the Vermilion River, six miles southeast of Danville, [IL] - then a village of only a few hundred.

Amid scenic beauty, the three-story frame building housed a huge grist mill that ground wheat and corn night and day. Through a smaller structure adjacent to it passed thousands of logs to be sawed into rough lumber.

The first mill was built on the site by William Sheets and Thomas Morgan of Georgetown, [IL] in 1835. When Henry T. Kyger purchased the mill in 1850, he enlarged the building, installed new machinery and formed a partnership with the two brothers, Daniel and Tilmon Kyger.

The original Kyger family was Henry T. Kyger and wife, their five daughters and two sons. Of these, two sons and a daughter survive: Mrs. Charles T. Bushong, 602 Buchanan St., R.J. Kyger, 316 Chandler and Willet T. Kyger, Pocahontas, Ark.

Power to run the grindling burrs and sawmill was furnished by two turbine shells driven by water impounded in a large fore-bay or mill race. Water was forced into it by a dam built across the river at an angle to the mill.

Both corn and wheat were ground by stone burrs. Lumber was cut by a "gate-saw" fitted into a huge frame about eight feet high and six feet wide. The sawmill turned out about two thousand feet of lumber a day, considered good in those days. The price was 50 cents per hundred feet, or a share.

Other buildings used in the milling business included a millbarn to house the horses and oxen, a cooperage for making barrels to ship flour, a wheat granery and barracks for millhands.

Henry Kyger sold the mill after operating it more than 30 years, but it continued to be used until the turn of the century when the structure weakened by age, fell of its own weight into the river. Only memories of its existence remain.

John Everly & Julia Ann Henthorn

1 - Samuel EVERLY
sp- Margaret HOARD
2 - John EVERLY
Born - 1802 VA
Died - 1879/1880 Ironton, Lawrence, OH
Note - John Everly

John's father was Captain Samuel Everly of the Monongalia Militia. He was the grandson of Simeon (Simson?) (1762-1846) Everly one of the first settlers in Granville (below Morgantown) in 1814.

OCCUPATION: John Everly was a farmer and teamster.

John and Julia lived 3/4 of a mile south of Ice's Ferry Pike, to the east of
Morgantown, WV. He was a cooper by trade and made nail kegs at his shop at the
mouth of Maple Run.

They had four children.

The Everlys moved to Ohio in 1845.
(Source: Easton-Avery Community History - 1963, p. 81)

Problem: One source gives the birth as 1802 and another 1804, VA. Date of death also may not be correct as 1879.

The Everlys remained in Monongalia, WV until shortly after 1850. Then they
removed to Scioto County, OH, Green Twp., where Julia's brother, Lot, was
living. In 1870, they had moved to Lawrence County, OH and evidently John
Everly died in the area of Ironton, OH between 1870 and 1880.

Problem: One source gave the date of birth as 1804, VA and death as 1870-1880, OH.

Ivan Albert Conger

Researcher Ivan Albert Conger wrote on 23 Aug 1969:

I was the one who gathered all the information for the first copy of our Conger History -- Descendants of Job A. Conger. It was published in March of 1959 after about two years of gathering information. Some of the chapters were written by members of that particular branch and then I put them all together and had them published. Seven of us advanced the money for printing and then we got our money back as they were sold. We still have approximately 30 copies left and with the proceeds from these we plan on getting a family tree made up for distribution.

Genealogy is very interesting and can also be very nerve - racking, due to the many sources of information and the many different dates for one single part. I enjoy it very much but do not have much time for it. I am especially interested because I now am the president of our Shiawasse County Historical Society. This all ties very closely with genealogy. I think it is just wonderful that there have been so many members of the family over the years who have had so much of an interest in getting this information all put together."

On 28 October 1970 he reported that, the descendants of Job Conger and Harriet Jewell met at his house in June for the 8th year in a row. He wrote, "The first year (1963) we had ... 20 people present -- an increase of 8 over 1962. We had 76 this year, an increase of 20 over last year. I had put in a swimming pool. We had many new ones for the first time and many who hadn't been to a reunion for a good many years. I was just overjoyed! They all love to come here to our home. We have a large back yard and plenty of shade. Have a park right behind me if some want to go play there. Everyone really has a ball and says, 'they didn't know what they were missing but will be back again.' Each year they vote to come back without even asking if they can. They just insist! We love it even if it is a lot of work. Besides, with results like that -- 20 to 76 -- how could we ever think of refusing?"

Zackquill Morgan

Problem: Was his first name, Zacquill or Zackquill?

MARRIAGE: First marriage to Nancy Paxton/Paxon in 1755.
MARRIAGE: Second marriage to, Drusilla Springer, Abt. 5 Sep or 5 Oct 1765.

RESIDENCES: Zackquill Morgan built a stone house on his land in Berkeley County, West Virginia before moving in 1773 to the present day Rivesville, Marion County, West Virginia. In 1799, he moved to Monongalia County and founded Morgantown, West Virginia.

According to Delbert Henthorn this Zacquill Morgan was from the family of
Morgans that founded Morgantown, WV.
[Note: It appears that he "was" the Zackquill Morgan who founded Morgantown, VA/WV. REH]

The Monongalia Story

Fort Morgan. Most of the details of Zackquill Morgan's life are well documented, but exactly when he built his fortified cabin in Morgantown is an open question. Sometime between 1767 and 1774, he became the first permanent settler in Morgantown, began farming and business operations on a scale large enough to have his holdings described as a "plantation" in contemporary accounts, and erected two or three homes for himself and his fellow settlers. About 1770, or possibly a year earlier, he enlarged one of these into a small stockade. Fort Morgan was about 275 feet north of the northeast corner of University Avenue and Fayette Street, about where the B'nai B'rith Hall now joins a bottling plant [1974]. It was located specifically by the late Lawrence Cox, and is remembered by many local citizens.
(Source: "The Monongalia Story, Vol. 1, by Earl Lemley Core, p. 354)

"The commissioners appointed to adjust claims to unpatented lands in the counties of Monongalia, Yohogania, and Ohio held several meetings during 1781. The first meeting of the board had been held at Redstone Old Fort in December 1779. The meeting of the Virginia commissioners at this site (now Brownsville, Pennsylvania) may have been to emphasize the claims of Virginia to the territory. At any rate, claims were approved of many settlers residing in what is not Fayette, Washington, and Greene counties, Pennsyslvania. (see Monongalia Story, vol. I, chapter VIII).

In April [1781] the board met at the mouth of Elk Creek, in a community beginning to be called Clarksburg. The place was named for the famous pioneer general George Rogers Clark. ... In October a meeting was held at the home of Samuel Lewellin and a final meeting later in the year at the home of Colonel John Evans.

The records of claims approved at these meetings have been largely presented in Vol. I of this work (pp. 156-332), in chronological order as to the recorded date of the first settlement. Several claims had no dates affixed and they
are listed below."
[Note: Two items of interest, concerning the Morgans are extracted below. REH]
  • David Morgan, assignee to Zackquil Morgan, 1,000 acres by preemption, adjoining lands of Zackquil Morgan.
  • Zackquil Morgan, assignee to James Stockwell, 1,000 acres by preemption, on east side of the Monongalhela River.

The War of 1812

"The War of 1812 ...quickly revived the martial spirit throughout the country and especially to the west of the Alleghenies, where the conquest of Canada was regarded as a summer excursion. Monongalia County was no exception. Volunteers rushed to enlist in the Virginia militia; as a matter of fact, most of the membership of the fifty-two companies were from western Virginia. "West Virginians fought on land and sea in all the major battles of the war."

Volunteers who enlisted at Morgantown joined county companies for muster day drill on the county drill grounds on Spruce Street, where one of the most popular drill masters was Captain Zackquill Morgan, son of the founder of Morgantown.

Three Monongalia County companies were included in a militia regiment of western Virginians commanded by Colonel Dudley Evans in the campaign of General William Henry Harrison in the northwest in 1812-13. Commanders of the three companies were Captain Jesse Ice, Captain James Morgan, and Captain Samuel Wilson. "Great hardships were often experienced in their marches. At times the men had to cut bushes to lie on at night, to keep themselves out of the water."

Captain Jesse Ice's company was composed of fifty-nine officers and privates. Captain James Morgan's company included thirty-nine officers and privates. Captain Samuel Wilson's company was the largest, being made up of seventy-two officers and privates." Among the privates in Captain Samuel Wilson's company were Henry Henthorn and Zackwell Pierpoint. They were brothers-in-law as a result of their marriages to Ridgway sisters, Sarah and Dorcas, respectively.

David Morgan of Delaware and Virginia

Birth: 12 MAY 1721 Christiana, New Castle, DE
Death: 8 MAY 1813 Rivesville, Marion, VA
Burial: MAY 1813 Marion, VA, Morgan Cemetery

David Morgan was one of the earliest settlers of the frontier. He was a man of great energy, of character, and of sterling worth.

Later in that same month [April 1770], a settlement was established by the Prickett-Hall-Ice party on the Monongahela River, five miles below the mouth of the Tygart River at the mouth of the stream they named Prickett's Creek. Fearful of being attacked, they petitioned for government protection and, later in the summer, a small fortification called Prickett's Fort was established adjacent to the settlement by David Morgan, built under direction of Col. William Byrd on the Monongahela adjacent to the settlement.
[Amplification Notes: Prickett's Settlement and Prickett's Fort were located at the mouth of present Prickett's Creek, five miles below present Fairmount, [WV] and about a mile below the village of Baxter, Marion Co., WV. REH]
(Source: "That Dark and Bloody River," by Allan W. Eckert, 1995, p. 19)

Problem: The death date of, 5 or 8 May 1813, is disputed by a Bible entry showing 1796. Pat Bugher has the date of death as, 19 May 1813 in Rivesville, Marion, VA. Pat obtain the date from the grave marker which states: David Morgan, Deceased, May 19, 1813, Aged 92. The marker is located in the Morgan family cemetery, on the farm of his son, Stephen Morgan, near Rivesville, Marion Co., VA (WV).

Hugh Jackson, Jr. & Elizabeth Hayes

Birth: 19 JUN 1744 , Fremanagh, , Ireland
Death: 1 MAY 1812 , Fayette, PA
Burial: MAY 1812 Searights, Fayette, PA, Grace Episcopal

Hugh Jackson, Jr. was one of five children born to Hugh and Mary Jackson, Sr. as listed in his father's Will filed at Annapolis, MD in Book TS I, p. 130.

He was born on June 19, 1744 and died on May 1, 1812 as determined from the inscription on his tombstone located in the Grace Episcopal Church cemetery, Searights, PA. It is not known where he was born, but it was probably Ireland in that his older brother, Robert, was born there. This parents did not come to the colonies until about 1750 according to notes found in the original folder of Albert G. Macdonald.

About 1760 the parents were living in the area around Frederick (Frederick Town), Maryland as the "Calendar of Maryland State Papers," also known as "The Black Book #1," reflects on page 141, that Hugh Jackson (Sr.) and his son, Robert Jackson (Sr.) were among the numerous petitioners to Governor Horatio Sharpe. Hugh Jr. was too young to be a signer. In the same book, on page 194, it shows that Hugh Jackson Senior and Junior and others were petitioners in 1766 to Governor Sharpe regarding the issuing of bills to pay creditors.

Hugh Jackson, Jr. married Elizabeth Hayes about 1770 as their first child, Mary, was born in 1771. Hugh and his bride lived in the Fayette County, PA area as "The Ten Mile Country and It's Pioneer Families," shows the tax assessment list for 1772 for Springhill Township, Bedford County, PA. It further states that Springhill Township included part of the present Fayette County area lying south of Redstone Creek to the mouth of Jacob's Creek. This tax list is also shown in the Pennsylvania Archives, Series III, Vol XXII and in Veech's "Monongahela of Old." The Pennsylvania Archives, Series III, Vol XXII, page 450 lists for the year 1783 the inhabitants of Manallen [sic] Township, Westmoreland County. This lists, Hugh Jackson (Jr.). On page 556 is listed Hugh Jackson under the Return for Fayette County, Menallen Township. (Fayette County was created from Westmoreland County in September 1783.)

When Hugh Jackson Jr. went to Menallen Township, he settled on Dunlap Creek. The Land Grant map for Menallen Township shows the original patents to land. This map reflects that a warrant dated November 7, 1785 was given to Hugh Jackson for 273 acres and allowances. A patent was granted on May 7, 1788 and the tract was known as "Dauphin," and is recorded in Patent Book 13, p. 128. I obtained a copy of the map at Uniontown, PA. It is also available at the Department of Internal Affairs, Harrisburg, PA.

Hugh and his wife, Elizabeth, continued to live in Menallen Township during their lifetime. They had a large family of at least 11 children. The administration of his estate is filed in the Orphan Court Records at Uniontown, PA, in Volume I. Since he did not leave a Will, a petition was entered by his son, Henry. The petition, filed on page 120 of Volume I, reflects the following heirs: wife, Elizabeth; Children: Mary, Robert, Margaret, David, Ann, Henry, Elizabeth, Sarah, Phebe and Rachel. There is also mentioned the five children of a daughter, Rebecca (Jackson) Poland, namely: Ann, John, Elizabeth, Samuel and David. (Rebecca had died before 1812.)

It is interesting to note that sons, Robert and David, married sisters, Margaret and Elizabeth Fuller and that two daughters, Elizabeth and Sarah, married brothers, Daniel and Stacy Rogers.

Hugh Jackson Jr. and Elizabeth Jackson are both buried in the Grace Episcopal Church Cemetery on U.S. Route 40 about 3 miles south of Searights, PA. In 1969 Albert G. Macdonald went to this cemetery and found that the church building had been completely removed and its location was marked by a brick altar with a brass plate bearing the inscription:

  • "Grace Episcopal Church
  • Log Church on this site used before 1793
  • Brick Church erected 1840 used until 1939
  • This altar erected 1965 as a memorial to those whose faith
  • built the church and cemetery"

This property was originally owned by Robert Jackson Sr., a brother of Hugh Jackson Jr. The property consisted of 3/4 acres of the original land grant. It was inherited by Robert Jackson Jr. In 1838, Robert Jackson Jr. and his wife, Margaret (Henthorn) Jackson deeded the property to the Trustees of the church.

Elizabeth Hayes
Birth: ABT 1752, New Garden Twp., Chester,PA
Death: 1 JAN 1829, , Fayette, PA
Burial: JAN 1829, Searights, Fayette, PA, Grace Episcopal

Elizabeth Jackson, the wife of Hugh Jackson, Jr. was born in 1752 according to the original folder of Albert G. Macdonald. This was confirmed by the date and inscription on her tombstone.

According to Cousin Jessie Hamilton it was concluded by her sister, Helen Williams, that Elizabeth was the daughter of Henry and Ann (Strode) Hayes and that she was born in New Garden Township, Chester County, PA. Her reference was page 52 of "The Hayes Family," by Royal S. Hayes. Albert Macdonald located this book at the Library of Congress.

Mr. Macdonald also located "The Proceedings of the Bi-Centennial of Henry Hayes, 1906" and searched New Garden and other Quaker Meeting records. These records show that, Elizabeth was the second child born to Henry and Ann Hayes who were married September 17, 1748 at New Garden. It is logical that Elizabeth could have been born in 1752 but no date is given in any of the records. "The Hayes Family," page 52 reflects that Margaret Hayes, born about 1726, and a sister of Henry, married Jeremiah Starr in 1746 and married again in 1769 to John Jackson. Because we know that Hugh's wife was Elizabeth, I believe the reference is in error. Also I doubt that Elizabeth Hayes married Hugh. The above books reflect that Ann Hayes died in 1766 at Wilmington, Del., and Henry remarried in 1768 and lived in Darby, PA. Elizabeth probably continued to live with her father until she married and there seems to be no logical reason why either she should go to Fayette County or why Hugh would go to Chester County to meet and marry.

Daniel Kyger

Daniel KYGER
Born - Abt 1762
Died - 27 Apr 1849 Georgetown, Vermilion, IL
Bur. - Apr 1849 Mc Kendree Twp., Vermilion, IL, Mc Kendree Cemetery

MARRIAGE: Daniel Kiger and Ann Henthorn were married on 9 Feb 1796 in Monongalia Co., VA. Marriage solemnized by James Fleming. [Note: That the surname was spelled, Kiger, on this document. REH]
(Source: List obtained in April 1997 by Monongalia County Clerk, Morgantown, WV 26505 - furnished by Diane Wilson)

Problem: Henthorn/Bell gives the marriage date as: 9 Feb 1796. The marriage is recorded in Monongalia, WV. Others list 2 Sep 1796, which seems to be in error. Probably cause by reading or writing the date 2/9/1796 as 9/2/1796.

12 Feb 1798. James Henthorn, of Mason, KY, by John Henthorn, his attorney in fact, to Daniel Kiger. Cites a 1 Oct 1796 power of attorney authorizing John to sell 1000 acres in Monongalia, now Harrison Co. [WV], on a right hand branch of Big Sandy, adjoining Samuel Lleuellen. Tract patented to Samuel Hanway, 20 Jun 1787, and sold by him to Christian Wireman, 9 Aug 1790; sold by Wireman to James Henthorn, 17 August 1790. Consideration: $1500. Signed: John Henthorn. Witnesses: none. Acknowledged in court. No delivery shown. Recorded: Old Series 1:353-354.

[Note: John Henthorn, brother of James Henthorn, had died in Apr 1786 so John Henthorn, the person holding the Power of Attorney, was probably the son of the desceased John, his son John Henthorn. REH]
(Source: Monongalia County (West) Virginia Deedbook Records 1784-1810 (Old Series Volumes 1-4) by Rick Toothman, Heritage Books, Inc., p. 47)

... September Court 1800 ordered that James Tibs, John Ramsey, Nicholas Vandevort and Daniel Kyger be appointed to view and lay out a road from Ice's Ferry to Samuel Hanway's Mill the nearest and best way and report to next Court to meet the first Saturday in next month. The court goes on to say that they accomplished that task and it is entered in the court record October 1880.
[Note: It is not known if this is the Daniel Kyger that married Ann Henthorn. REH]
