1. JOHN MARBLETOWN1 BOYCE(1ST) was born Abt. 1734 in Netherlands, and died Aft. 1810 in Marbletown, Ulster Co,NY census.
Notes for JOHN MARBLETOWN BOYCE(1ST):
1790 census of Marbletown Twp, Ulster Co John 1st Boyce 1 2 6 (the 2 boys show in 1810 census).
1790 John Boyce Jr 1 0 2 . So with the statements that Abraham is the brother of the John who maried Ann Cantine,
this John Boyce 1st (Senior)in Marbletown seems to be the godfather to my Boice line.
1800 census lots of Cantine's in Marbletown. FOUND THEM ! John Buys Sen Pg 198 Fam 7913 01101 10301 00
John Buys Jr Pg 196 Fam 7057 30010 11010 10. The people around John Sr are the same as in 1810.
1810 census Ulster Co Marbletown John Boise same page as Abraham. 00001 00001 total 2
His boys together same page Samuel Boise 30010(26-45 b 1780?) 10010 tot 6 Robert Boise 20100(16-26
b1784?) 10100 total 5. These are new - not on Lorraine Luke's list from Olive.
2004 From Sharon Scofield, "Beekman Patent pages". John Boice that m Ann Cantine is a BROTHER of Abraham Boice.
2004,Jan there are two genealogies of Boice in the Ulster Co,NY Genealogical Society. PO Box 536, 17 Main St, Hurley
NY 12443. Also the Ulster Co Archives, Kingston, NY 845-340-3415
1. Boice James Hillyer Boice,Jr 1996 2. Boice A tree grows in Ulster Robert Haines 1983 3. Also a bible record
Henry Boice m Abigail Lee 1815 (b abt 1783), son of John Boice b 1760?
From the www.worldconnect.genealogy.rootsweb Ulster & Albany Co, NY Ancestores & Descendents I have about
41 Boice b & d's in Shandaken, Boiceville, Olive, etc Ulster Co, NY.
2004 Feb I obtained a book NY in the Rev by James A Roberts pub 1897. It has in the Albany Co Militia: Abraham Boice,
Abraham Buys & Abraham Boyce. In the Ulster Co Militia : 14 duDubois, Buice, Buoy, Benony Mulks, duBoies, etc.
In the Westchester Co Militia: Boyce, Buice, Bruice, Buyse, Byse, Bice etc. 3 Boyce in Dutchess Co
2004, Sept I have 41 Boice search results from www.family search.org/ENG/Search. About this time I grew tired of being
the only researcher chasing Abraham Boice, and I did not followup to examine the above two genealogies. then in
August 2005 I received the below. Any future searching of local records should be in the area of the Tongore Cemetery. Rt 213, Ulster Co, NY. Marbletown Twsp, which was Stone Ridge.
2005,July a tel call to Judy Boice of Lansing,Mi . She says her family history indicates Netherlands Dutch.Then I found
Abraham & John Boise in 1810 Marbletown,Ulster Co & then Abraham & John Boyce in 1790 Marbletown!! 1800
census - Whoa they are Buys. When did they arrive in Tongore? They are not in the Ulster Revolutionary Militia
although Abraham is listed as a soldier of the Rev. living in Caroline. I am interested in their connection , if any, to
the other pre- 1790 Boyce/Boice ie ships lists, European locations, etc.
2005 August I received 10 pages of Boice genealogy from Ulster Co Gen.Soc, PO box 536, Hurley,NY 12443
The sequence of spelling of the Dutch name by date is: Boyce, Byas, Buys, Boise, Boice, Bois

Notes for ABRAHAM BOICE(BOYCE):
1754 The supposition is that our Boyce,Buys,Boise,Boice are Netherlands into Ulster Co,NY or a nearby county such as Washington or Westchester. . The name means wood - a surname given those who live in or near the woods, or who
handle wood. Is John Boyse 1st the immigrant? It's looking like there are Boice in Wash.Co North of Glen Falls,NY
and in Westchester Co before 1790.
1775-81 Rev. War Abraham Boice, Gen John Cantine & son John Jr. " Soldiers who lived in the Town of Caroline,NY"
rootsweb.com/~nytompki/Military/tsold01.htm. The book "NY in the Rev by James Roberts 1897", Albany Co, NY
Militia Col Abraham Wemple's unit Pg 81- 2 possibles are Abraham Boice & James & Abraham Boyce - enlisted.
Pg 224 in Westchester Co is Abraham Boice. Since there are no Abraham's in Ulster Militia, our Abram must
be one of the above? There is a story that 3 Boice men helped with the capture of Major John Andre who was
involved with Benedict Arnold. There are lots of Boice,Bice,Buice etc in the Westchester Co Militia. You can
readily see how the Beekman papers mixed up our Boice with Buys - all the different spellings.
1781 Eldest son Peter is b. Abraham's 1st wife ? - must die by mid 1780's.
1787 b. Margaret - if her mother is Anna (Amy), she would have been 20 yrs old.
1790 census Marbletown Twp, Ulster Co FOUND THEM ! Abraham BOYCE 11200 U16 Peter, Margaret is 3 yr old fem
Wow, so he is right where Eli said - Tongore area is in Marbletown Twp. These name changes imply a discomfort
level with the English census takers. Now when did Abram & John arrive there, ie deeds and where from?

Notes for JOHN JR BOISE:
1800 census John Buys Jr Pg 196 fam 7057 30010 11010 1 0 so the 3 boys in Rev Juliens pages likely
are Jr's. Not in Sr's census.

The Boyce of Troy township are not related unless they were brothers in Herkimer Co, NY in 1802.
The story goes: David & Nancy (Keyser) Boyce b 1802 d. 1875 Kansas. Came to Troy at age 24, single,
in 1826 and cleared and improved the farm. He is stated as a native of Herkimer Co, NY but the 1870
Census shows him b. HESS (Hesse). Nancy Keyser was b. Pa, and lived in Troy. They had 8 children,
with one name similiar - 'Hiram'. Their 6th child, Joseph G Boyce, b Aug 16,1847 in the Civil War.

1858 Lake Ames Map - NOT there. The farm shown as S BOIS in 1869 is MM COOLBAUGH in 1858! That's Moses
Manley Coolbaugh, son of Catharine Bull Coolbaugh. She is shown on another farm about a mile away.
1860 Census Monroe Twsp Stephen Bois 59, Catharine 57 farmer $900 $300. Abraham & Mary are with them.
1867, July 26 We have a long hand written letter to Uncle Steven & Aunt Kate (Coolbaugh) from George A Boice
in Caroline, NY (this is Caroline Twsp now in Tompkins Co). It refers to the town of Danby, which is
5 miles West of Boiceville. The letter is headed "Boiceville" which is the former name of West Slaterville,NY.
It mentions the following: Uncle John & Aunt Sarah, Becca,Eliz Martha, George White and George Boice of
Mobile,Alabama. So all these years Elaine Heddle has had a pointer to Stephen's brothers / sisters /
nephews etc in Tioga & Tompkins Counties,NY.
1869 Atlas of Brad Co by Beers. I have an original large Atlas. S Bois occupies the farm one mile from the
Monroeton bridge. MM Coolbaugh moves a mile away to the farm of his mother. The deed should be
checked on the Towanda Court house for date and maybe middle initial.

1885 The Bradford Republican , prob Sept 21, 1885. age 84 6 mos 11 da The funeral was in Monroeton at his dau
Mrs Samuel Cole (Margaret Bois). He should be buried in Lib. Corn- Lot #71, but it may be full - with wife Mary,
ch: Edward E, Hiram and dau Juliette. Pictures of these markers are in the 1991 pub of Monroe Twsp Cem.
The compilation of the Wysox cem. starts with the name BOYCE,Stephen then data on Catharine Bull his wife.
It is possible that even tho the funeral was in Monroeton and he owned a plot in Lib Corn, that he is buried
before Catharine in Wysox. Rev. Ed Hoagland was a Coolbaugh, so in his papers at the BCHS should be
Stephens obit. An oddity is that Stephen, Alonzo, Philip & Alverilla Mingos had no gravestone. Maybe there
was no engraver. With Mr. Sam Cole there, he even could be buried in Coles cem.

Rockwell jail and Towanda Creek bridge.
1870 Stephen Bois is in 1870 Census, with Alonzo's boys Charles and Warren Mingos working at his farm.
I've had that info for 30 years - couldn't make out the spelling of the farmer?
Notes for ALONZO MINGOS:
Alonzo Mingos(F4) Family Knowledge: none, only research
1818 His obit says b Thompkins Co, NY on April 1. Conrad(F3) has a Date of Deed sale on Oct 10,1817 with Date of
Record both Oct and Dec 1818. I always presumed they moved to Lansing in about Oct 1817, but maybe there is
another scenario for Sarah who is pregnant. Born in NJ on 1850 &1880 census. In logic the NJ entries are odd.
I must believe the obit. There are lots of Alonzo's in this period. There was a children's book in the early 1800's
'Alonzo & Melissa' Pg 153 Bradsby, Hist of Brad Co.
1837,Dec He is the youngest of Conrad's children to come to Liberty Corners (how long did it take to drag
lumber up the hill and build a house? The family may not have arrived until spring 1838
1845,Oct 28 1st land action Bgt from Valentine Strouse MonroeTwsp - $270, but 1867 sale says Durell. Alonzo -
no deeds in original Conrad, Joe & John farms. Valentine's Bro Jonas Strouse m Sarah Mingos, dau of John
in 1843. Valentine bgt this 58 acres (560 x 500 yards, lengths = to a par 5 golf hole) from William Strouse on 30
Dec, 1843. It begins at a white oak corner of a lot of land joining Joseph Mingos and Samuel Dimock. It looks
like on the 1858 map that Joseph is on the East side of the road, but his name is on the West side.
1848,Jan 31 Monroe Twp taxes Conrad, Alonzo and Philip
1850 Census value of real estate $1000 farmer Monroe twsp. Both he & Pursilla b in NJ is odd. Alonzo is House # 30 !
Located him finally. Chris Piatt 29 (Wf is Eliz, dau of Coonrad) is on the West side of the road, Coonrad & Philip 28,
Joseph 27, and John 26. The 1867 sale says Durell, so that this 58 acres is on the East side of the dirt road.
1852,Jan 29 before Justice of Peace Conrad's land application War of 1812
In the presence of ALONZO MINGOS Justice Jared Goodenough
1853,Nov 12 28 acres from Conrad, East side of road. " hand paid" $250. The land shows on the Lake Ames
map across from Coonrad's! After all these years, finally located Alonzo's farm with Pursila & children.
1857,Jan 28 Letter from Alonzo (Monroe Tsp) & Pursila to Abram Bois (where?), mentons Philo. Original with
Elaine Heddle.The letter is in Alonzo's hand writing - same signature as 1851 land application
at Towanda Court House. He is bargaining for farm land for Abram - 50 Acres from Philo Mingos in
Monroeton or the farm of Mr. Hale. Both sellers want about $300 downpayment and a team (horses).
This is the only known artifact of the 1st 4 generations of Menges/Mingos.
1857,Dec Alonzo sold 20 acres unimproved Durell land to D O Holland & Daniel Heman Jun 1858.
1858 taxes dated 26 Nov 1857 Mingus, Alonzo 10 acres imp $100, 15 acres ump $75, house $40, $50 2 horses,
$10 1 horse. These Mingos were not dairy farmers - grain & products.
1858 Map Lake Ames - a J Mingos house was in the new Tow Twsp. South Towanda Twsp came into existance
on Dec 15,1851! Subsequently "South" was dropped for Towanda Township. In Durell is P Mengos &
B Mengos! In Monroe Twsp on the S to N dirt road is A or P Mingos, J Mingos & J Mingos. The Oct 4, 1858 tax
assessment in sequence shows(S to N) David ,Joseph, Alonzo and then Philip. Alonzo is 40 acres imp $360,
30 acres ump $150, house now $100, $50 2 horses, $24 2 cows.
1860 tax assessment dated Oct 3, 1859 David(south), Joseph, Alonzo, Philip and Philo. Alonzo's taxes are the same
as in 1859 except the two cows are only $20.
1860 Census Monroe Tsp shows Conrad with Alonzo, value of land increases to $2500. personal property $100.
1863 1st wife Pursila Bois dies. 1864 Remarries Cornelia S David at residence of H S Hollon, Rev R L Stillwell
1867,April Monroe deed book, Alonzo to Eliza Benjamen. This must be the farm across from Coonrad & Joe -
but I haven't checked the deed. Also Tow Boro next deed book entry, Alonzo from David Pratt, physician
1869 Map Atlas by Beers - WOW Alonzo Mingos on State St. Tow. His 1st move after remariage - near Dr Pratt
at corner of State & Main, and two houses East on State St from his office, I finally found Pursila's parents,
one mile up the hill from the Monroeton bridge. Oct 13,1869 Brad Co Tax Assessment(1870) - Mingos, Alonzo
House & Lot $750, $40 1 horse, $40 Buggy
1870 After 30 years, I still can't find him in 1870 census? His sons Charles & Warren are working on the Stephen
Bois farm one mile from Monroeton bridge. It must be that Alonzo, Cornelia, Legrande, Abram and Wells were
missed in the 1870 Census. Wells is not in 1870 Renova, Clinton Co where he died in 1873. I have searched
Tow Boro Microfilm and Quest Index CD of Brad Co - nothing. A search of 1871 Assessment books in BCHS
proves he was there - Oct 15,1870 House & Lot $750, $50 1 horse. The only thing I can think of is to go to the
National Archives and request to look at the original census pages for 1870.
1871,May Tow Boro Alonzo from Lewis Beach & to LL Beach. Lewis L Beach 57y is a farmer in Springfield Twsp.
Lewis B Beach( son) age 29 is a physician in Tow Boro. Maybe using Dr Pratt's facilities?

"DIED MINGOS AT MONROETON,June 27,Mr. Alonzo Mingos ,aged 66 years.Mr.Mingos was born in Thompkins

there is no gravestone? Stephen Bois d 1885, Alonzo and Alverilla Mingos, Wf of William Mingos. Something
must be askew at Mr Richart's. Alonzo is living 1 mile North of Coles cem, and likely was buried there. In 1880

1984 I placed a marker for Alonzo in Coles cemetery next to Pursila Mingos. It's strange, Henry never knew about
Alonzo or the Liberty Corn. families? And neither Edward or Cornelia put a marker on Alonzo's grave?
Children of PURSILA BOIS and ALONZO MINGOS are:
11. i. EDWARD E.5 MINGOS, b. March 1844, Hollon Hill, Liberty Corners; d. 15 August 1916, Monroeton cem.

Notes for WELLS MINGOS:
1847 On the name. the Wells, Welles are all over Wyalusing. Pioneer settler in 1774 James Wells.
His family came back and settled Wyalusing. Then Charles Fischer Welles, 1st prothonatary and
clerk of courts in Towanda, came to Wyalusing in 1812.They had 10 children. Also less than a mile
across the river is Terrytown, Azilum Twsp. Samuel Wells had 400 acres there in 1800.

The 50th was especially noted for its gallantry in the many battles in which it participated and for its
intense sufferings.It was near Petersburg,Va twice, where his brother Edward was wounded.
1870 I couldn't find him or Alonzo in the Bradford Co census? I have scanned thru over 20 census pages of Clinton Co,
Renova, Pa! This town on the West Branch of the Susquehanna River, 30 miles west of Williamsport, Pa,must
have been a large Railroad Yard. Many laborers, RR men about 25 yrs old, machinists, etc. If Wells went here
to work, he was the 1st of many Mingos to go into the railway business. His brothers Charles and Warren are
working on the farm of Stephen Boice(sp),Monroe Twsp.

The average soldiers pay in the Civil War was $13.00 per month. Why George and Edward went to Rochester is
a mystery. Bradsby's history.pg 247, says the 207th Regiment was organized Sept 8th and there were men
from Bradford Co in Co's B,E and G. It certainly took Edward some time to get to Rochester,NY.

Settlers brought them in with their teams for miles around, receiving goods in exchange. The banks of the creek
at Monroeton was literally lined with lumber and shingles.

1936,Oct 26 Towanda Daily Review F.E.Mingos of Monroeton Dies Veteran Station Agent Passes Away at
Hospital in Waverly Fred E Mingos resident of Monroeton, passed away last evening at the Tioga General
Hospital in Waverly,NY. He had been a patient there for the past two weeks and was thought to be recovering
nicely from the operation. Most of yesterday members of his family were with him and were encouraged by
the progress he appeared to be making. Late in the evening, however, Mr Mingos suffered a relapse, the end
coming quickly. ( He had an operation for ulcers.He was flat on his back,medical practice at the time, and died
of a blood clot).
" Fred Mingos was born in Monroeton and was considered one of the highly respected residents of that
community. For the past 30(38) years he was Lehigh Station Agent at Monroeton, also serving the New Albany
station of late.The survivors are his wife, who was injured in an auto accident in-route to the hospital to see
her husband soon after his admission ( Margaret hit a narrow bridge on the way North) : two sons, Henry E,
who is employed at the Humphrey Lumber Yards here, and Carl, who is a student at Mansfield State Teachers
College.The funeral arrangements will be announced later".
My pencil notes from Vera -" Leah was placed in hospital all banged up, broken arm.Margaret had a broken
finger. John had a bruise across his stomach. Margaret got some insurance money."
1936-9 Leah was Exec & Admin for Fred Fred was
a life member of the Presbyterian Church in Monroeton.
As a result, Henry took Margaret there, and John went to Sunday school there for a short while.

The burials are behind the markers
1939,April 8 will probated "He left his entire estate to his wife Leah M, after which it was to go to his sons
Henry E and Francis Carl equally". But Leah lived until 1968 and wrote a new will in 1963.
1975 Margaret Mingos donated Fred's and Henry's masonic jewels to Evergreen Lodge . In turn they were
on display at the Brad Co Hist Soc exhibit.
2003 Fred broke the chain of family history. At age 15 he was at Alonzo's funeral and knew where he was buried.
He also knew all the Mingos deaths in the early 1900's. He did NOT pass this along to Henry?

1898,Oct 5 Mrs. Fred Mingos spent a few days at her home in Chemung, NY - Bradford Republican
1905 Built and moved into what is now 310 Main St. Monroeton numbered the houses after Margaret's
fire in 1976. The fire dept went to 310 Main St first, before going to the apartment on North Main.
1920 Census Leah's mother, Alice W Snell - a widow, is in Monroeton.This 3 bedroom house is crowded.
1920's According to Vera , Leah would tie up Carl in a high chair and go over to the railway station to
help Fred . Henry was living at home and working as cashier at the Towanda station. I have a copy of a
postcard at the railway station with Fred,Leah and Henry in behind large stacks of egg crates.
1933 Monroeton Bank closed. I presume Fred and Leah also lost some money
1936 Leah broke her arm, and was banged up in the accident that happened on the way to see Fred at the
1936 After Fred died , there was a requirement that Leah co-sign Henry & Margaret's mortgage on the
3rd house from the feed mill. According to Vera, Leah wouldn't co-sign, and the house was lost.
They moved, with John, into 310 Main St . 1939 Leah was the executor of Fred's estate.
1940's Leah occupied the front bedroom - she went away for years at a time, being a personal, practical
nurse . I do remember playing casino cards in the front room, and sometimes she was in the swing on
the front porch , as we cared for MARGARET'S CARD SHOP after school. The SHOP was sold in late
summer of 1949 to Jake Housenick. In that front room I acquired a shaped tobacco pipe of Fred's.
1949,Aug On the front porch, Leah gave me for my birthday (Carl bought it), a King cornet. In Sept in a
horn competition with Jamie McPherson I won 1st seat in the Towanda HS band. In 1968 in
Washington,DC I sold the horn for $50. to Dick Wilson for his son.
1949,Aug John was sick with that Phila disease later called Legioneers. Leah was accused of something,
and we moved to Towanda - for 16 years.
1950's Leah did a 6 month stay in Lawrence,Ka that didn't work out well. By the 1950's she had a private
room on the top floor of the Jennings Nursing home. She was able to work in the home, and
entertained in a rocking chair . I remember her giving me several little items in an act of good will.
1963 Leah's will left everything to Henry!
1964 Jeanine took her for a ride to an antique shop in Burlington. Apparently she was in good mental
condition , and she bought Jeanine a small piece . I have no idea if she had any income like a
railroad pension. Probably not even SSI, or social security.
1965 There was a fire at 310 Main, which was occupied by renters. It was bad enough that the kitchen,
which was an addition to the original house, and sat 6" lower than the original building, was
completely rebuilt. The exit to the southside yard was done away with. After the rebuilding Margaret
and Henry moved back to Monroeton!

1968,April 7 Henry and Margaret came from Daytona Beach, Fla and stopped in Potomac, Md

1889 The AMA card file says b 1889, but the Brad Co draft says July 1890
1900 He is in the Wyoming Co census, son of John & Ida
1905 John S Mingos living at South Main St, Towanda
1907 Jay Mingos in Monroeton. A letter from Elaine Heddle " Jay was a childhood friend & cousin of Dean A Bois".
The AMA card file says Monroeton H.S.
In reminiscing concerning the township, Supt. Morrow recalled the time back in 1907 when as principal of Monroeton High School he decided to put on a home talent show. It was his first attempt along that line and both he and the actors were a little worried over just how it would go over. Consequently, when some complications arose over getting the hall at Monroeton on the night desired, it did not take long to decide to try the play at Laquin first. That would give them a chance to see how it was before the home folks had a chance to criticise.
The actors and what paraphernalia was necessary were loaded on a train and taken to Laquin. The hall was packed. Men and women came from miles around on horseback and on donkeys. It was a big event up there for shows were few and far between. Many of those in the audience wore the big lumberjack shirts and some were seen to be carrying guns at various locations on their anatomy. There was no way for the actors and actresses to get out of town until the next day. The show had to be good and it was. Its title was "Among the Breakers" – a very appropriate name for a play in a coal mining township. All expenses were paid and there was a small profit. Besides that, the experience there helped greatly and the play was an unqualified success when it was repeated two weeks later at Monroeton.
Among those who took part in the production, a well balanced comedy-drama,
were Earl Hinman, now teaching in Sayre; Leon Crandell, Dr. Jay Mingos,
Robert Musselman, Lucy Drake and Mary Ward.

Notes for HENRY EDWARD MINGOS:
"My dad is gone now and I hope he is at peace for he worked long and hard for his family"
" Your dad had a host of friends.We did not go around socially, because I didn't belong to the
clubs. But I enjoyed talking to him. He always had a story - talked loudly. I enjoyed him!"
David Gamzon 7/11/1984 age 69 working at Memorial Park
was so impressed with him - how would you like to come down here
with me and learn the lumber
business?. I do not recall ever any unpleasant words passing between us. He meant a great deal to
me in so many ways - so many happy years with one of the finest persons I have ever known".
Edward Overton Sept 15,1972
1914, April 12 joined the Monroeton Presbyterian Church
1916 Finished 11 grades at Monroeton red brick school house. One of his teachers was Flora Woodruff
who lived three houses South of 310 Main St
1917 Hurt his ankle while playing football at Towanda HS for his 12th grade. The ankle gave him some
trouble all his life. One of his teachers was Jean Holcombe, who I also had for Senior English!
1918,Jun Grad Towanda HS. Started a life of work on May 1, 1918 for the S&NY railroad (before grad).
WW1 ended Nov 11, 1918 Armistice. Towanda Consolidated Lehigh Valley Railroad & S&NY were merged
on Nov 1,1918. Lehigh Valley had Gov't control of S&NY until 1920. I have a history book of the
Susquehanna & NY Railroad. 3rd Edition Publ 1939. Henry ended up working for LVRR.
1920 - 1928 clerk and cashier at Washington St. Station,Towanda LVRR - he is no longer with S&NY
1920 I heard he played drums at a local watering hole. He was catcher for Monroeton baseball team.
He was proud that he caught for Jake Northrop, a Pro pitcher who later in life hired out for $50.game.
1923 Mr. & Mrs L C Marcy entertain at dinner party for the 24th birthday of Prof.Walter Marcy. Guests
include (could be Monroeton baseball team) Jake Northrop,Waldo Moulthrop,Richard Rice,Henry
Rockwell,Grover Wheeler, Henry Mingos,Eugene Minier, Ralph Dunfee, Fred Smith, John Madden and
Leo Marcy (played some pro ball for the NY Yankees).
1925, Dec There is a picture of a dinner-dance at Shores Inn, Rt 6 from the collection of J E Meredith in the January
11, 2005 Towanda paper that says that Mr & Mrs Mingos are in the picture. An email from Steve Moore, Moores
Auto, says on the back of the picture - standing from left to right, 2nd & 3rd persons Henry & Margaret Mingos.
Margaret must have been visiting Monroeton for the holidays - they weren't m until August 1926.
1926,Mar 2 H E Mingos of Monroeton purchases a new car.
1926,Aug 17 m. Margaret Delphine Hart in Wilkes-Barre. Best man was Harold Williams. Henry rode the
train to Wilkes-Barre. He also visited with Peg in the summers at Lake George,NY and Atlantic City.
On their honeymoon they took a train trip to Buffalo and Chicago!
1927,April 30 Monroeton Dramatic Club is presenting "Married Life". Members of the cast are Henry E
Mingos, Mrs. Henry Mingos, plus eight others. To be presented in the new Wesly Hall.
1929 Sayre, Westbound yard of Lehigh Valley RR - billclerk
1929 Towanda , baggage master. Master of Evergreen Lodge No 163
1929 " Henry came into Ed Overton's office to collect the Lehigh Valley RR freight bills. In a moment or so
he accepted ( the job), and thus began a long business association". This was very hard work. He opened the
yard at 7:00 am and worked a 6 day week until after WW2. This may have been before the stock market crash
of Oct 1929. In 1945 I would leave my bicycle at the yard while going to 10 cent Saturday western movies.
1936,Oct 25 Fred dies - this is upsetting. Leah would not co-sign the mortgage on the 3rd house from the feed mill.
Henry, Margaret & John move into 310 Main St prob by xmas 1936. Carl coming home from Mansfield would
have disrupted sleeping arrangements. John was occupying his bedroom.
1940's Every summer he would take us to the Wheelerville camp, and we
would pick baskets of
huckleberries , some for resale (.15 cents /qt) at the grocery store. By the late 1940's I don't remember
Henry going hunting at all, but he did take me trout fishing and bass fishing. When I was about 14 yrs
old we went to Canada for a week fishing. Later in the summer of 1952 Rueben Cronshee invited me
to go with Tom Kohn on the same trip to Canada. He worked the Sunday newspapers at Margaret's
Card Shop. Once on a windy day, he had to come save the day - I had papers blowing everywhere.
He was always squeezing out $ by projects, ie blueberries, Sun. papers, tax loss on Margaret's Card
Shop, club Secretaries which he got paid a minimal amount.
1944 WW2 He was an airplane spotter on Sundays, his only day off. And of course,he had a Victory Garden
On the Aircraft Warning Observer Card he is listed as 6' 2" and 205 pds
1940's Reluctantly he drove us to a lot of Hart family gatherings, North Lake, Dallas, and Wilkes-Barre.
1945 Summer Somehow Henry arranged for me to attend Camp Brule as a Lone Scout. I had been doing
some scout work in Presbyterian Hall, Monroeton. Maybe it folded? Anyway I was treated special!
1946,Nov Henry acquired 4 tickets for the Army-Navy football game in Veterans Stadium , Phila. He invited
my cousin Paul Beers to join us, and WOW!, what a game. 21-18 Blanchard and Davis for Army and
Pistol Pete Williams for Navy. It is listed now as one of the greatest college games ever! Navy ran
out of time on the one foot line? As I write this on Jan 19,2003 the last game ever was played
today in that stadium-Tampa Bay wins over Phila Eagles.
1948, summer Henry coached (managed) our junior Monroeton baseball team. We were very good. One year
our record was 22-4. John pitched- won 11 games. He drove Chuck Rubert and I to Bloomsburg for a major
league tryout with the Phil. Athletics.
1948,Dec He took the first vacation I remember and drove us all the way to Key West,Fla. I think it was a
1946 Chevrolet, and we got back in time for me to start as center on the JV basketball team.
I never remember my Dad letting my mother drive.
1949, sum He co--managed with Earl Brown and we entered a baseball team in the Tri-County league.
Halfway to Powell they leveled a woods area and made a ballfield where my Dad said there used
to be one years before. Whatever happened, I played again for the Browns the summer of 1953 on
Browns Hill -my last baseball game in August versus Towanda.The game was forfeited - Earl
Brown gave the umpire a concusion. I hitchhiked to Wallingford, Vt afterward to work as a
lifeguard at Shawnee Leadership Institute
1949,Sept They moved to York Ave ,Towanda then to Chestnut St second floor apt. by 1950. As late as 1956
they were still there. After that they moved to a house on River St.
1950,Feb Humphrey Lumber Yards sold to Valley Lumber Company. (Ed Flynn, William Fitzgerald and Henry
had two shares (tiebreaker). Ed Overton, owner, retired to Cal. I worked as a hand there in summer of 1951.
It just about did me in. He hired my classmates. Ruth Remsnyder was a bookkeeper, Jim Ross did a
summer tour in 1952, and later Chuck Rubert worked there full time! What a guy my dad was!
1950, April 18 William Fitzgerald ,Sr is killed in an auto accident at a bridge in Waverly . Dorothy continued as co-
owner of the Lumber Yards. As an aside Billy told me he and his mother joined the Presbyterian church.
1953, Dec 11 he became a Shriner.
1951-1955 He and Margaret paid for my college education, which was about $1000/yr! I worked summers
and got paid for ROTC in addition to occaisional jobs at State College. On May 8th, 1955 they came to
Beaver House for mother's day. Little did they know what would happen next.
1955,May 10 Henry left Valley Lumber. In a vote Dorothy & Henry elected Henry as Director of Valley Lumber.
Apparently Ed Flynn was livid, and did not offer Dorothy the full value her share of the yards, so she either took him
to Towanda Court or this was tied up in the estate of William FitzGerald Sr. Jerry Fox (a partner of Flynn) must
have then operated the Towanda Yard for a while. Clyde Bennett in Waverly did not get his $Bonus & ask Henry to
be a witness in court for him. During the next few months Henry was looking for a business to buy, and Dorothy
was willing to back him for $20,000 to buy the Ulster Yard, since my Dad's shares were tied up in the legal action.
1955, July 2 Sat.night. As an aside, I was home for the long weekend from Phila, and Billy Fitz & I hooked up
somehow and went to the Keystone Inn & Thompsons in Waverly. Neither one of us seemed to know much
about what was going on. On Monday Henry drove us to Reading for a Hart gathering, and then took me to
Phila. They had breakfast with me on Tues & I went into work at the Frankfort Arsenal at 2:00 pm.
1955, Aug 15 He joins with Robert E Lee, the son-in law of a contractor, to form Wysox Lumber Co. I have a letter
from my mother describing the opening, including flowers from Dorothy Fitzgerald and the 1st Nat'l Bank. It is
very possible that Dorothy Fitzgerald backed my father or co-signed a note for the Wysox Lumber Yard.
1950's Both Henry and Margaret went bowling once a week at the Towanda alleys and later at the top
of the hill in North Towanda. They both played a lot of cards. 500 parties, Hi Lo Jack in the game,
pinochle, pitch, hearts , etc.
1956,Jan They came to State College & stayed at the Nittany Lion Inn for my graduation. Johanna Pomeroy
said they were so proud.
1956, March He arranged with Dorothy Fitzgerald for a loan of $400. so I could buy my first car. They were still in a
legal court action over either the estate of William Fitzgerald,Sr or the sellout price of the Valley Lumber Yards.

Secretary of Monroeton Masonic Lodge, Secretary/Treasurer of Monroeton Borough Council and
Secretary for a long time of the Naiad-Linta Fire Co of Towanda.

1950 's letters from Leah to me, she said he called her on the phone
1972,April He cleaned up the basement after Hurricane Agnes. It must have physically done him in. As
Secretary for the Monroe Council he applied for all the Federal aid - lots of paperwork.
1972,April 29 Henry was on the building committee for renovating the closed Pres.Church into a Lodge Hall.
He served as purchasing agent to secure needed materials, labored long and hard insuring the
proper completion of all the planned renovation. At the Pa Grand Lodge for the dedication he
received his 50 year Masonic service emblem. His masonic career included York and Scottish Rites in
Towanda, Williamsport Consistory, Irem Temple Shrine, Wilkes-Barre, and its Bradford Co
Shrine Club. He was very helpful with Instruction, and served 25 years as Blue Lodge Secretary!
1972 He was a lifetime member and maybe charter member of the Monroeton Gun Club at the top of
the hill near Wheelerville,Pa, He was a member of the Presbyterian Church for 56 years most of
the time belonging to Monroeton, although he must have sent his letter to Towanda after John &
Margaret joined there in 1951. He was active in the Towanda Gun Club at Homet's Ferry and the
Monroeton Fire Co.
1972,Jun 11 Dr Tama said he was like a walking dead man. It must have been extremely hard to keep
going. Yet in a letter he just planted his garden,which he did all his life. Yellow corn,cucumbers,
salsify, asters, marygold, and zennias. Margaret and he were just out to a bowling banquet at
Laceyville, and they danced once. When I joined them in late August in Atlantic City, he could
barely walk. How lucky I was to spend a few days with him just before the end.
1972,Sept 8 Henry was burning cornstalkes on the back of the lot and a gasoline can exploded. He was
burned in the face and upper body, but would have recovered in the Towanda Hospital. Dr. Tama
said his case was reviewed by a board. He had 100% blockage of the arteries - arteriosclerocus,
He died Sept 11,1972 of myocardial infarction, and is buried in Monroeton cemetery with two
generations of his family.There were a record number of masons, over 70, at the funeral service
at the Maryott Funeral Home. Over 200 people signed the attendance book!
1980's The irony is that Henry, Margaret, Meredith Bottling Works and Humphreys all ended by fire.
2003 I am reminded of dad every night on TV with Paul Kangas, Business Report at 6:30 pm. He combed
his white hair straight backwards. I'll always remember them. They'll always be in my heart.

DIES IN HOUSE FIRE

The body was removed to the Robert Packer Hospital, but I did not request on autopsy.
Clayton & Jane Maryott handled the funeral. I gave a special hutch which Margaret had
made to them for their dau. I ask for the Eastern Star to perform services, but I should have had
the Rebekah's. It was a closed casket. We had a family dinner at Jack McGuire's in Towanda after
the burial on Saturday. Lea Beers was with us for the whole time.
"Some 6200 Americans die in home fires each year, and at least two - thirds of the deaths stem
from inhalation of smoke and toxic gases."
1976,Dec 6 We spent six days in Towanda, three of which Jeanine sifted through the ashes. The living room
was gutted and the rest of the apt. was smoke and heat damaged. There were no utilities and
the temperature was 14 degrees? Needless to say, this was an ordeal. We stored some pieces of
furniture that we choose to keep in James VanNess's barn ( alsoClass of 1951). Marshall Dawsey,
Polly Moore's ( also class of 1951) husband , was hired to do the probate.
2003 My mother had an immense influence on my life. She and I got along really well, and we had a lot

22. FRANCIS CARL7 MINGOS (FREDERICK E6, EDWARD E5, PURSILA4 BOIS, STEPHEN3 BOIS(BOICE), ABRAHAM2 BOICE(BOYCE), JOHN MARBLETOWN1 BOYCE(1ST)) was born 14 February 1918 in Sayre Hosp, Bradford Co, PA, and died 6 November 2000 in Topeka,Ka Hospital, but Lawrence, Ka cemetery. He married VERA RUTH SCHRAG, daughter of PETER SCHRAG and KATIE STUCKY. She was born 23 May 1920 in Kingman, Kansas.
Notes for FRANCIS CARL MINGOS:
Family Knowledge: a lot always went by Carl
1918 b - probably an unplanned child. An awkward age spread between these male Mingos. 15 - 18 yrs difference
between us - down to cousins John and Steven. Leah named her 1st son after her father, Henry Clay Snell.
Where the name Carl came from is a mystery. Francis was his grandmothers name.
1923,Aug I have a picture from Henry/Leah's scrapebook showing Carl , a dog and the antique wooden wagon in
front of the Main St house on a cement sidewalk. The back of a car is in the driveway. The wagon survived until
the 1940's when I was a child. The sides folded up to form a flat top? My guess is this was a luggage wagon
Fred got for Henry from the railroad station.
1930,Dec 25th Doris White of Monroeton gave Carl a book - Catamount Camp publ 1910 by Edward Ellis. I, John F
Mingos, have this childs book, a story of boys on a trip to the mountains
1931,Sept Monroeton HS is still open. I have a 1931 picture of Fred, Carl and Henry in the Monroeton back yard.
Carl is the same height as Fred, ca 5'11". He later became 6' 4". He played tennis at Rice's court in N Monroeton,
and apparently played basketball, although not for Towanda HS. Once he and John Haines set off the Monroeton
fire alarm. Henry was really mad. Frank Rice bought the Mingos farm in 1912 .
1934 Carl went 11 grades to Monroeton School and went to Towanda for a 12th grade, as did Henry. Check Towanda
newspaper in late May/June for Monroeton HS graduates. In his Monroeton class were Mason Smith ( lives in
Monroeton on Canton Ave in 2005), Helene Rice, John Haynes and Carl.
1935,Jun 7 Towanda HS graduation. 52nd annual commencement. While the 2nd episode of a presentation was
prepared, Carl Mingos played two trumpet solos. There is a long article on microfilm at the BCHS from the
Towanda Daily Review. College Prep graduates did not include Carl. Other grad's Helene Rice (Monroeton) ,
Herbert (Bud) Yanofsky and David Turner.
1936,Oct 26 Fred dies. Carl was a Sophomore at Mansfield. So Leah with no pension from Fred had to pay for Carl's
college. That was a good enough reason for having Henry,Margaret & John to move into 310 Main St. But as Vera
said, Leah would not co-sign Henry's mortgage after Fred died. Citizens Bk in Towanda assumed the Monroeton
assets & presumably the mortgage on the third house from the feed mill. The 1910 census says the 1905 house
was mortagage free. At 19 yrs old, Fred's passing must have been upsetting for Carl. Also with Henry's family in
the house, Carl would have been an extra guest when he was home from Mansfield - somehow they would have
had to shift sleeping arrangements. Thus Carl's saying " he did not have a home".
1938,June 27 Monroeton High School closed (9,10 & 11th grades). Students now bussed to Towanda by Russell
White. Source: 1995 Brad Co History, Pg 156
1939 Graduated 4 yr college with a BA degree in music . A search of Penn State Alumni index - Carl did not show up.
His marriage article refers to Mansfield State Teachers college and Pennsylvania State Teachers college.
The marriage article more correctly should say " a Pa State Teachers college" rather than "and". Mansfield Univ
is still noted for its music education!
1939/40-40/41-41/? Taught music in Tunkhannock - boarded at Wilber & Helen Welch's. Taught Jimmy Welch to play
the trumpet in Monroeton on visits home from Mansfield College, which he is still doing in 2005.The Welch's lived
two houses south of the Marcy Hotel. It was prob not required that he have a teaching degree. Enlisted in Army Air
Corp ( likely after Pearl Harbor- during school year?). He flew for a short while, became Lt, then downgraded to Sgt.
and was a band leader for the rest of the war - 5 yrs.
1944,Nov 12 Schrag - Mingos Vows Exchanged Sunday
" In the Zion Mennonite Church, Kingman, Ka Sgt. F Carl Mingos and Vera Ruth Schrag. Sgt Mingos, a music
major, is a graduate of Mansfield State Teachers College & Penn. State Teachers College. He was a member of
Phi Mu Alpha Sino Fonia and was a music instructor before entering the army". No one attended from Monroeton.
1945, Dec 1st Carl was discharged from the 698th Army Band in Washington, DC. I have pictures in my high school
album of Mom & Dad, me, Ruth & Wilson Maury & Carl at Mt Vernon, at the Capitol and at Bowling Air Base
1948 Vera / Carl on the front porch of Monroeton. He bought a King cornet for me as a birthday gift from Leah.
1950's Earned Masters degree at Kansas University. At some time here, Leah stayed with Carl and Vera
when they lived at Tennessee Ave. I have 2 min. of 8 mm film taken in 1957 on my way to WPAFB.
1955 Carl and family returned to Towanda. Steven.age 5, remembers going to the mountain camp.
1960 - 1967 Investment broker, a partner, in Barrett,Fitch and North Investments
1960's He was an active member of Trinity Lutheran ch.& was choir director 10 years. He was an avid golfer (8 hdcp).
He was a President of the Lawrence Country Club & President of the KU Football Quaterback Club.
1968,April Carl and Vera came back for Leah's funeral .They stood on the porch of the homestead and looked over to
the graveyard for the burial. Something to do with a request of Leah?
1972,Sept 14 Vera and Carl come to Towanda/Monroeton for Henry's funeral . They had been in the
Carolina's visiting Vickie and Charles.
1980's Parkinson's Disease began to affect his life.
1968-1998 Became Vice President and Manager of Paine Webber, Topeka, Ka
2000,Nov 6 passed through death to life with Christ at Select Specialty Hospital in Topeka, age 82 9 mos.
He was the 7th longest life male Mingos in this file, and the longest in Alonzo's line.

Vera hosted family and friends at home afterward.
