She lived a conscientious Christian life, and has gone to live in a mansion prepared for her, eternal in the heaven. The funeral was held from the M. E. Church, the pastor, The Rev. I. T. Johnson officiating. He spoke from John 5:28-29—“I am the resurrection and the life; he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. Marvel not at this, for the hour is coming in which all that are in the graves shall hear His voice and come forth.” Miss Jennie Hanyen and Mrs. I. T.

WALKER

Alexander Walker was enumerated in Tioga Township in 1810 between the households of Solomon Wood and Alexander Harris, which may indicate he resided in what is now Rutland Township. The household included one male under age ten (b. 1801-10), one male of age sixteen and under age twenty six (b. 1785-94), and a female of age sixteen and under age twenty six (b. 1795-94). The columns for female members of the household of age ten and under age sixteen, and sixteen and under age twenty six are not legible for the 1810 census so the females within the household in that age group are unknown. Alexander does not appear on the 1812 Tioga Township assessment list, one of two townships in existence in the county at that date. In the estate of Alvin Bacon who resided in Rutland, A. Walker had an amount of $2.00 against the estate, dated 20 Oct 1813. This probably refers to Alexander but does not necessarily indicate he was still living in the region.

WARNER

Samuel Warner b. perhaps c. 1778 (1814 special assessment) m. Alma Granger b. 15 Sept 1784 Suffield, Connecticut daughter of Elijah Granger and Mary King. There are two men with the name Samuel Warner that appear on a special assessment of Tioga and Delmar Townships, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, dated 7 Oct 1814 when it was submitted to the commissioners of Tioga County. This was a special tax enumeration of the two townships that existed in the entire County at that date. One was listed as age 29 and the other as age 36, both farmers. The list, though alphabetical, is not alphabetical within each letter, and the Samuel Warner, age 36, was grouped with Lemuel Wood, Solomon Wood, and Josiah Woodworth, all Rutland setters. Silas Burrell, husband of Alma’s sister Sarah Granger, appeared on this special assessment at the same time. Samuel appears on the first assessment list of Jackson Township (Rutland Township was created from Jackson and Sullivan Townships in 1828) of 1816 (compiled fall of 1815), with the notation “removed from the state.” Enumerated in Elmira, Tioga County (that portion that became Chemung County) in 1820 where Alma’s brothers Frederick Granger and Alfred Granger also resided, with two males under age ten (b. 1811-20), one male of age ten and under age sixteen (b. 1805-10), one male of age twenty six and under age forty five (b. 1776-94), one male of age forty five and over (b. before 1775), and one female of age twenty six and under age forty five (b. 1776-94). Enumerated in Elmira in 1830 and 1840. They are related to have removed to Stansted, Quebec, Canada.

Gilbert Warner b. 13 May 1808.
Tirzah Warner b. 14 Nov 1811 m. M. Webster Martin, resided Stansted, Canada.

WATTLES

Daniel Wattles b. 2 Mar 1761 (bible) Lebanon, New London County, Connecticut baptized May 1765 Goshen Congregational Church, Lebanon, son of Mason Wattles and Hannah Sluman is nearly always found in records as Dan and not as Daniel, m. 13 Jan 1791 Cyntha Williams b. 16 Mar 1767 (bible) baptized 5 Apr 1767 Goshen Congregational Church, Lebanon, Connecticut. They were evidently in what became Delaware County by 1796 when Dan signed a petition with 111 others in opposition to the State Legislature creating Delaware County. Enumerated in Franklin, Delaware County, New York in 1800 with two males under age ten (b. 1791-1800), one male of age twenty six and under age forty five (b. 1756-74), three females under age ten (b. 1791-1800), and one female of age twenty six and under age forty five (b. 1756-74). They removed to Bradford County, Pennsylvania at what date is uncertain, but Dan appears on the 1807 assessment list of Orwell with 1 house, 6 improved acres, and 1 cow. They were enumerated in Orwell in 1810 with two males of age sixteen and under age twenty six (b. 1785-94), one male of age forty five and over (b. before 1765), one female under age ten (b. 1801-10), two females of age ten and under age sixteen (b. 1795-1800), one female of age sixteen and under age twenty six (b. 1785-94), and one female of age forty five and over (b. before 1765).

The two young males in the household in 1820 were perhaps grandsons and sons of a widowed son who was perhaps either John or Arunah enumerated in the household. They evidently followed daughter Adosha Pemberton and family to neighboring Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania who had removed there by 1818. Dan appears on the 1821 assessment list of Jackson Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania (Rutland Township where they resided not yet formed) with the notation “removed.” Dan again appears on the 1825 assessment list of Jackson Township (1824 assessment list missing). Enumerated in Rutland Township in 1830 with one male of age sixty and under age seventy (b. 1761-70) and one female of age sixty and under age seventy (b. 1761-70).

That he was in the Battle at Fort Griswold when Major Ledyard and a number of men in the fort were massacred; that he was in the Rhode Island Battle and also in the Battle at White Plains. That he never received a written discharge that no documentary evidence of his services. That he knows no person in this part of the country who can testify to his services. For his reputation as a revolutionary soldier and the neighborhood belief on the subject he refers to the Rev. Simeon R. Jones and Solomon L. Smith of Southport and Major Seth Dagget of Jackson Tioga County. He hereby relinquishes every claim to a pension or annuity except the present & declares that his name is not on the Pension Roll of the agency of any State. Signed Dan Wattles.

She stated she was the widow of Dan Wattles who drew a pension and that she was married 13 Jan 1791 and that he died 4 May 1839. Signed Cyntha Wattles. She made several other statements, one of several sentences in her own handwriting, and always signed as Cyntha Wattles.

On 21 Sept 1840 Arunah Wattles, age 45, resident of Rome Township appeared in Bradford County before a justice of the peace and stated he was present at the decease of Dan Wattles which took place at his residence in Rutland Township, Tioga County 4 May 1839 leaving a wife whose name is Cyntha Wattles and who now resides in Bradford County.

On 24 Feb 1845 Arunah Wattles, age 50, appeared in Bradford County before a justice of the peace and stated he was the son of Dan and Cyntha Wattles, that his father kept a family record in which was an entry of the marriage of Dan Wattles to Cyntha Williams and also entries of births of their children and deaths. The deponent last saw the book in the month of October 1824 when on a visit to his father in Jackson (now Rutland) in the County of Tioga where the said Dan Wattles lived. That at the time the said family record was very much torn so much that he had to place detached leaves of paper together to read it. That it was likely to be totally destroyed he made a copy of said record. And, that said record contained marriage of his parents “Dan Wattles and Cyntha Williams was married January 13th 1791.” That all of the entries were made in the handwriting of Dan Wattles.

Cyntha inscribed on Roll of Philadelphia at the rate of $60 per annum to commence 4 Mar 1846. Certificate of pension issued 12 Jan 1846 – total amount $300.00

Cyntha inscribed on the rolls at $80 per annum to commence 4 Mar 1848 and certificate of pension issued 20 Mar 1850.

Satisfactory evidence has been given to the Court of Common Pleas that Cyntha Wattles, a pensioner at the rate of $60 per year and widow of Dan Wattles died 23 Dec 1848, that Arunah Wattles of Rome and Caroline Allen of Wysox and Adosha Pemberton of Lapeer, Michigan are the only surviving children dated 6 Feb 1850 by Allen McKean prothonotary.

On 13 Feb 1850 at a Court of Common Pleas in Bradford County, Pennsylvania, Arunah Wattles appeared and made oath that he was the administrator of the estate of Cyntha Wattles, widow of Dan Wattles, a pensioner at the rate of $80 per annum and that he d. 4 May 1839. That he the said Arunah Wattles, Adosha Pemberton of Lapeer, Michigan and Caroline Allen of Wysox in Bradford County are the only children of Cyntha Wattles, now surviving her, and on behalf of himself and the other children ask for any arrears that may be due them. Signed by Arunah Wattles.

Cyntha was buried in the Wysox Cemetery and her marker reads: Cyntha wife of Dan Wattles died Dec. 23, 1848 81 yrs 8 mos 9 ds. Estate file 709 bond dated 6 Feb 1850, Arunah Wattles, administrator.

Second Generation:
1.  Polly Wattles b. 7 Oct 1791 d. 14 Sept 1823 (bible record gives age as 30 years but actual age was 31 years). She was not enumerated in her parent’s household in the 1820 census enumeration and is assumed to have married.

2.  John Wattles b. 29 Feb 1793 m. 14 Apr 1814 Eliza Cash b. 28 Nov 1796 daughter of Isaac Cash and Sally Gore.

Furthermore, the biography of their son David relates he was born in Troy 9 Feb 1821 which would further imply that it was probably John in the household of his father in the 1820 census enumeration.

DAVID C. WATTLES. We here present a life narrative of one of the prominent citizens of North Branch, who was born in Troy, Bradford County, Pa., February 9, 1821, and has now reached the age of a septuagenarian. Wattles Ferry, Conn., was the native place of his parents, John and Eliza (Cash) Wattles.
The father was by occupation a stone-layer and brickmason and the early home of the family was in the county where our subject was brought up. His was not a happy childhood and youth as he became an orphan by the death of his mother at the tender age of three years and when he was twelve years old he was bound out to a man who proved to be addicted to the use of liquor and the unhappy and abused boy ran away and found refuge in Chemung County, N. Y., where at the age of fourteen he found employment.
After spending a year or so there the youth determined to come West, but as he had no money he could not secure passage on a boat. With more than ordinary pluck and determination, he made up his mind to go on board the vessel ands take his chances, and as he fell into kind hands he was brought across to Detroit and having made his way on foot through the wilderness he came to Lapeer County in 1837. This boy had received but slight schooling in the East and after coming to Michigan was able to attend school but thirty-three days when he was sixteen years old. For about seven years he continued working on farms and in 1844 purchased a piece of land. He enlisted in Detroit May 28, 1847 for the term of the War with Mexico, receiving his honorable discharge at Governor's Island, New York harbor August 13, 1848, after which he returned to Michigan. Mr. Wattles was married February 5, 1851, to Mrs. Susan M. Rood of Lapeer. After carrying on farming in what is now Lapeer City until 1854 he came to North Branch Township, where there were two bands of Indians living at the time. From 1869 to 1873 he lived in Lapeer and now has a fine place of four hundred acres on sections 9, 10, 15 and 16. It was in the fall of 1889 when he removed to the village of North Branch. Here he now makes his home although he still carries on farming. In Politics he is a Democrat and has been for a number of years, besides filling at one time the office of Township Clerk (Portrait & Biographical Album of Genesee, Lapeer & Tuscola Counties, Michigan, 1892).

WHITEHEAD

James Whitehead first appears on the 1819 assessment list of Jackson Township. He again appears in 1823. The Church of Christ of Covington was organized by Elder James Whitehead, 7 Oct 1829, with James Whitehead and Hannah Whitehead being members. Enumerated in Richmond Township, Tioga County in 1830 with two males of age twenty and under age thirty (b. 1801-10), one male of age fifty and under age sixty (b. 1771-80), and one female of age sixty and under age seventy (b. 1761-70).  James was living 25 Sept 1832 in Covington, Tioga County when he attested to the character of Andrew Sharp and Lemuel Clark who had applied for pensions for Revolutionary War service.

Isaac C. Whitehead b. 1776-94 was of Salisbury, Litchfield County, Connecticut when he acquired (Liber 4:446) 63 aces on 1 Apr 1818 on warrant parcel 975 from Harris Corey. Isaac first appears on the 1820 assessment list (compiled late fall of 1819) with a grist mill. Isaac was enumerated in Jackson Township in 1820 (that portion that became Rutland) with one male under age ten (b. 1811-20), one male of age twenty six and under age forty five (b. 1776-94), one female under age five (b.1811-20), and one female of age twenty six and under age forty five (b. 1776-94).

WOOD

Lemuel Wood b. c. 1746 (1814 special assessment) m. Salome Gregory b. perhaps c. 1746 and perhaps in Ridgefield, Fairfield County, Connecticut where several older siblings were born daughter of Ithamar Gregory and Rebecca Sturges. They removed to Hubbardton, Rutland County, Vermont. “After the close of the Revolutionary War, new families began to arrive, and by the summer of 1784 there were about twenty families in town, among the new arrivals being Lemuel Wood. . .Ithamer Gregory. . .” Lemuel was enumerated in Hubbardton, Rutland County, Vermont in 1790 with two males of age sixteen and over (b. before 1774), one male under age sixteen (b. 1775-90), and three females. Enumerated in Hubbardton in 1800 with one male of age sixteen and under age twenty six (b. 1775-84), one male of age forty five and over (b. before 1775), one female of age ten and under age sixteen (b. 1785-90), and one female of age forty five and over (b. before 1775). A note, perhaps from the family bible, and amongst descendants, relates that Lemuel and Salome’s son Solomon and wife Caroline “started from Vermont for Pa. the 26th of April 1810 and arrived the 14th of May 1810 in Tioga Co.” It is assumed that Lemuel and Salome accompanied them and were perhaps the male and female of age forty five and over (b. before 1765) in the household of Solomon Wood in the 1810 census enumeration of Tioga Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, one of only two townships within the County in existence at that date. Nathaniel Morgan and Sarah his wife of Smithfield Township, Ontario County (that portion that became Columbia Township, Bradford County), Pennsylvania conveyed (Liber 1:198) to Lemuel Wood of Tioga Township, Tioga County, “where Lemuel Wood is now seated,” 200 acres on warrant parcel 1373 (present Pumpkin Hill, Rutland Township), dated 22 Dec 1810. The Ford and Rumsey families settled on adjoining lands on Pumpkin Hill. Lemuel appears on the 1812 assessment list of Tioga Township, one of only two townships in existence at that date, with 200 acres, 2 horses, and 2 cows. Lemuel appears on a special assessment of Tioga and Delmar Townships, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, dated 7 Oct 1814 when it was submitted to the commissioners of Tioga County. This was a special tax enumeration of the two townships that existed in the entire County at that date. Lemuel was listed as age 68, farmer. Lemuel Wood appears on the first assessment list of Jackson Township in 1816 (Rutland Township had not yet been created). Enumerated in Jackson Township (Rutland Township not yet created) in 1820 with one male of age forty five and over (b. before 1775) and one female of age forty five and over (b. before 1775). Lemuel Wood and Salome Wood, his wife, conveyed (Liber 17:434) 100 acres on 13 July 1824, being one half of a 200 acre tract upon which they resided, to Solomon Wood of Jackson Township (Rutland Township not yet created where the land was situated). Both Lemuel and Salome signed by mark. Lemuel appears on the 1825 assessment list (compiled late fall of 1824) of Jackson Township. Lemuel Wood and Salome Wood, his wife, conveyed (17:435) the north half of 200 acres to Solomon Wood, 9 Aug 1826. This is the last dated record found for Lemuel. Salome was perhaps the female of age eighty and under age ninety (b. 1741-50) enumerated in the household of Solomon Wood in Rutland in 1830. Lemuel and Salome are perhaps buried in Pumpkin Hill Cemetery, Rutland Township, which is situated on warrant parcel 1373 where they settled and was perhaps begun by the Wood family. Son, Solomon has the oldest dated marker in the cemetery.

Rumsey, justice of the peace, Caroline Drury of Hubbardton b. 1784 daughter of Caleb Drury and Candice Glazier. A note, perhaps from the family bible, and amongst descendants, relates that Solomon and Caroline “started from Vermont for Pa. the 26th of April 1810 and arrived the 14th of May 1810 in Tioga Co.” Solomon appears on the 1810 census of Tioga Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, one of only two townships within the County in existence at that date, with one male under age ten (b. 1801-10), one male of age sixteen and under age twenty six (b. 1785-94), one male of age twenty six and under age forty five (b. 1766-84), one male of age forty five and over (b. before 1765), one female of age sixteen and under age twenty six (b. 1785-94), and one female of age forty five and over (b. before 1765).
