Almeda CLEVELAND & David FELLOWS of Sullivan Township

1. Almeda1 Cleveland, daughter of Solomon Cleveland and Martha Rathbone*, (#13267) was born 1781. Almeda died 10 JUL 1829 at age 48. Her body was interred JUL 1829 in State Road Cemetery, Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania.

She married David Fellows. (David Fellows is #8126.) David was born 1780 in Connecticut. David was the son of Nathan Fellows* and Hannah Orvis. He married Martha Cleveland AFT 1829. David died 25 JUL 1846 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 66. Death date is in error since David was alive in 1850 census aged 70 years.

His body was interred JUL 1846 in State Road Cemetery, Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. David was listed as the head of a family on the 1810 Census in Tioga, Tioga Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Tioga Township in 1810 included the area that later became Sullivan.

David was listed as the head of a family on the 1820 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. David was listed as the head of a family on the 1830 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. David is 50-60 at the time of this census and the presence of a woman 40-50 indicates that he married very shortly after the death of his first wife in 1829. Two sons and a daughter were in the household. See also Nathan Fellows Bradford County History p. 161. Widow of Nathan (younger) living with John in 1880 census. Questionable death date since he was present in 1850 census.

Almeda Cleveland and David Fellows had the following children:

2 i. Mr. ?2 Fellows (#10833). He married Eliza Unknown (Fellows). (Eliza Unknown (Fellows) is #10834.) Eliza was born 1811 in Vermont. living in James and Mary Fellows household in 1880 as sister in law.

3 ii. Rev. Nathan Fellows (#13971) was born 1800-1810. He married Elvira Dewey. (Elvira Dewey is #13972.) Elvira was born 1815. Elvira was the daughter of Joseph Dewey and Rebecca Unknown (Dewey).

Nathan was listed as the head of a family on the 1830 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Elvira and NAthan were 15-20 and 20-30 with two daughters under five. A Methodist minister, in Dewey genealogy, placed in this family by date and name. May be same as un named Fellows in family with widow, but widow's name does not match the Dewey woman.

4 iii. James Amos Fellows (#8125) was born in Poultney, Rutland County, Vermont 30 JUN 1804. Individual flags: Obituary. James died 11 JUN 1890 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 85. OBITUARY: James A. Fellows was born in Poultney,Rutland, Vermont June 30, 1803, and at the age of six came with his parents to Ward township, this county. In 1815 his parents moved to Sullivan, where he continued to reside until his death on Wednesday, June 11th. He was married in 1829 to Mary Ballard, daughter of Thomas Ballard of Troy who survives him. He leaves also one daughter, Mrs. George Fletcher of Springfield, Pa. and three sons, B. A. Fellows of the state of Oregon, James of Henrietta NY, and F. W. Fellows of Sullivan .. remainder illegible. He married Mary (Polly) Ballard 1829. (Mary (Polly) Ballard is #8122.)

Polly was born 24 AUG 1806 in Burlington, Burlington Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania. Polly was the daughter of Thomas Ballard and Catherine Provin. Polly died 17 FEB 1904 in Mainesburg, Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 97. "Polly, born August 24, 1806, married 1828 Dr. Armenius Fellows and settled at Mainesburg, Tioga county, Pa. She was a very remarkable woman of beautiful life. Her death occurred at nearly 100 years." She also practices ad a physician under the name of Aunt Polly.

James was listed as the head of a family on the 1830 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. I can't put together who the people in this household might be for this year. A man 60-70, a female baby under five, a boy 10-15 and two boys 15-20 were there, in addition to James who would have been 26 but who was probably classed in the 30-40 category, and Mary 20-30.

James was listed as the head of a family on the 1840 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Mary and James had one male under five, one female 5-10, one female 10-15, and one female 15-20 in their household. There is also a man 60-70 in the household, probably David, whose wife had just died in 1839.

In the Census of 1850, James was listed as a head of household in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. James was a farmer with property worth $2500.

In the Census of 1860, James was listed as a head of household in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. James, called Amos in this census, was a farmer with real property worth $1100 and personal property worth $500. Bradford County History gives name as Dr. Armenius Fellows who settled in Mainesburg, and married Polly Ballard.

5 iv. Mary Ann Fellows (#63257) was born in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 1815/20. She married Jesse M. Keeney. (Jesse M. Keeney is #63258.) Jesse was born 1810/20 in New York. Jesse was the son of Jesse Keeney Sr. and Catherine Middaugh*. Jesse was listed as the head of a family on the 1840 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Mary Ann and Jesse lived next door to her brother James in 1840. They had one male child under age five. Two males 15-20 in their household may be brothers of one of them. "Jesse M. Keeney married Mary Ann Fellows, of Sullivan township, and he there joined the Methodist church, of which he was class leader many years and up to the time of his death." His parental family had migrated from the Susquehanna River area near Wilkes Barre, PA where Jesse's grandparents had settled, to Chemung and Cortland Counties in New York and to Tioga in 1823 or 24. Jesse's grandparents were from Connecticut. I can not locate either Jesse or Mary Ann in subsequent census records by any of several spellings I tried. The Keeney Genealogy indicates he settled at Tioga.

Jesse was nephew of Mary Keeney who maried Major Benjamin Bentley for whom Bentley Creek was named. He was also nephew of Ruby Keeney who married Richard Mitchell for whom Mitchell Creek was named. His cousin, Benjamin Parshall was also inSullivan in 1840, and his brother, Elijah, settled in the area named Keeneyville in Middlebury Township, Tioga County PA.

Mary Ann FELLOWS was between 20 and 30 years old in the 1840 census. She lived next door to James A. FELLOWS. The 1883 History describes her as "of Sullivan." I am assuming she is sister of James given their proximity. I also believe that the older man in James' household is the father of both, David, recently widowed. A female 10-15 was present in the 1830 census in David's household.
