CHAPTER VII.

Love of Country.

Nowhere do we find a more patriotic people than those who have made Overton their home. From the time of the first settlement to the present the same patriotic spirit has prevailed. During the War of 1812 there were but two persons in Overton subject to military enrollment. One of these was drafted, and the other enlisted and served through the "Second Struggle for Independence." In the war of the Rebellion one-eighth of the entire population of the town fought for the preservation of the Union, suffering a percentage of loss exceeded only by two other townships in the county. When war was declared against Spain in 1898, there was no abatement of patriotic ardor and Overton outdid every other township in the proportion of her young men furnishing for the crisis.

The Overton boys were among the bravest and best that wore the blue. Of their number ten were wounded, three killed in battle, one died of wounds, three died in rebel prisons and three died of disease. They served on both land and sea, and fought with McClellan, Burnside, Hooker, Meade and Grant in the Army of the Potomac; with Sheridan, Kilpatrick and Custer in the cavalry; with Grant in the southwest; and with Thomas and Sherman in the southeast and from "Atlanta to the sea."

Overton responded at the first call for volunteers, and Nelson Sherman, yet living, has the distinction of being the first man to enlist from the township. Jacob Hottenstein furnished four sons—George, John, Mandes and Solomon; Henry Sherman, four sons-Daniel (in western army), Henry, Jacob and Nelson; John Streevy, four sons-Alfred, Henry, William and Charles; Daniel O’Neill, three sons-John, Philip and William; Jonathan Camp, three sons-Henry, Levi and Reuben; while Brooks Epley sent his son, John, and went himself.

Overton also has the distinction of having furnished the youngest enlisted soldier from the county, being J. Andrew wilt, who was mustered into service at the age of 14 years, 9 months, and 4 days. Other boy soldiers, whose ages ranged from 15 to 19 years, were Charles Streevy, Edwin U. Heverly, John Epley, Frederick Heichemer, Edward McCann, Watson Molyneux, James Mullen, Edward J. Rinebold, Morris Levering and Albert Molyneux.

One of the most remarkable men to enter the service was Alfred Streevy. He was not only a powerful man but was quick as a cat, and fond of wrestling, running and jumping. In all these feats he had earned a wide reputation before going to the war. The dullness of camp life afforded him ample opportunity to engage in his favorite sports. He ran foot races with the boys, and engaged in lifting, running and jumping contests. He could not only outdo any man in his company, but was the best man in the regiment. He frequently received a challenge from some other regiment in the brigade, and in every instance came out the champion in the contest. It was said of him that he could out-lift, out-run, out-jump or throw any man in the regiment and never met his match in the corps.

Jacob Sherman served four years and one month. He participated in all the battles and engagements of his regiment, never was wounded and was with his company every day, save six, when he was in the hospital. He was in the great battles of Antietam, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Chattanooga, Lookout Mountain, Ringgold, Peach Tree Creek and numerous smaller engagements. Certainly a remarkable record, and the longest term of service of any man from Overton.

James Rinebold was a noble character, whose golden deed should ever live in the remembrance of his kindred and friends. He had a brother with a family of several small children, who was drafted into the service. James, who was a single man, told his brother to remain and care for his family, and he would take his place in the arm. He, accordingly, donned the blue, went to the front, was captured by the enemy and died of starvation in Andersonville prison. What can be more noble than to sacrifice one’s life for a brother and his country?

Brooks Epley had the distinction of being the last man to stand guard over Henry Wirtz of Andersonville notoriety before he was hung. Marion Waltman, who did duty at Fortress Monroe, stood guard over Jefferson Davis during his confinement there.


The only surviving (1910) veterans of the foregoing residing in the town are Daniel Heverly, John C. Hottenstein and Lewis Rinebold. Other veterans are Isaac Bailey (34th N.Y. Inf. And 16th N.Y. Heavy Artillery), Benjamin J. Hausknecht (Co. E, 210th, P.V. and Co. D. 39th Pa. Militia), and Christopher F. Platt (Co., K. 50th P.V.) who enlisted from other localities and moved to Overton since the war.
In the Spanish American war and Phillippino difficulties, the following young men enlisted from Overton; Harry Learn, Joseph Sherman, Richard Sherman, Frank Snell, Alfred Spink, Allen Streevy, Benjamin Streevy and Walter Streevy. Benjamin Streevy served in the regimental band of "Hood’s Invincible" during the Cuban campaign. George Sherman served an enlistment in the U.S. Cavalry.

Some First and Other Things.

--The first child born in Overton was John, son of Frederick Kissell, born in 1818, although Amasa, son of John Heverly, born April 11, 1817, was in fact Overton’s first baby, his mother being only temporarily out of the township when he came into the world.

--The first death in the township was that of Mrs. Christian Heverly, July, 1821.

--The first burial in the township—Frederick Kissell, spring of 1823.

--The first marriage in the neighborhood was in the summer of 1828 at the house of Henry Sherman, Esquire Dyer Ormsby officiating. The happy pair were Daniel Kaufman and Miss Susan, daughter of Leonard Streevy. Kaufman was a half brother of Mr. Sherman and was living with him at the time.

--The first funeral sermon preached in Overton was that of Jacob Heverly in 1826. The neighbors were congregated in a little grove above his house, where they listened to Rev. Elisha Cole of Monroe.

--The first regular Sabbath school was organized at the school house in 1845 by Jacob Hottenstein. However, before that time Mr. Hottenstein had formed classes at private houses and taught them for a short period. Amasa Heverly says: "Mr. Hottenstein taught a Sabbath school at our house a few times, and after the erection of our new barn held it there. This was perhaps about 1835."

--The first secret society, The Independent Order of Good Templars, was organized in the summer of 1854. The meetings of the society were held at the house of Daniel Heverly (3rd) and had a membership of over forty.

--The first horses were brought to the township by Daniel Heverly (1st) when he came in. He also had the first wagons.

--The first orchard was set out by Daniel Heverly (1st), the trees being brought from Northrup Hollow. His son planted seeds and had a nursery later.

--The first framed barn that of Christian Heverly, 1832. The oldest barn standing that of Fred Haverly, erected 1835.

--The first framed house that of Christian Heverly, 1836. The oldest house standing that of Hahlon Chase, erected 1838. The next, the old part (hewed logs) of Daniel Heverly residence, 1839.

--Christian Heverly had the first stove. It was subsequently purchased and used in the old school house.

--Daniel Heverly (1st) had the first clock.

--Henry Heverly had the first cook stove in the vicinity.

--Jacob Heverly had the first mowing machine, the "Wood."

--The first raised bridge across Black Creek was that put up by George Hunsinger and John Molyneux in 1843. It was below the McCann mill dam, near the site of the present road bridge.

--A noted land-mark and place of rendezvous on the huckleberry mountain was the "Three Brothers"---three large hemlock trees, called in memory of Absalom Carr, James Donley and John Miller, half brothers and hunters. Carr is the man who discovered coal on Barclay Mountain. He died on Hatch Hill.

--In 1814 Daniel Heverly was assessed in Towanda township with 20 acres of improved land, 80 unimproved, 2 oxen, 1 horse and 3 cows; valuation $348; tax $2.61. John Heverly, single freeman, 3 acres improved and other land, valuation $124; tax .94 cents.

--In the days of the old Militia, trainings were sometimes held in Overton. At a cavalry, or horse training on Christian Heverly’s flats in 1841, one man was badly injured.
