Descendants of John Marbletown Boyce(1st)
September 1005 edition
Generation No. 1

1.  JOHN MARBLETOWN1 BOYCE(1ST) was born Abt. 1734 in Netherlands, and died Aft. 1810 in Marbletown, Ulster Co,NY census.

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 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
Other Boice Immigrants:

          Abraham Cayuga Boice b abt 1775, Cayuga Co, NY 1800 census Cayuga  Romulus  John Boyce,Jacob Boyce. So

Generation No. 2

2.  ABRAHAM2 BOICE(BOYCE) (JOHN MARBLETOWN1 BOYCE(1ST)) (Source: Bois Bible record  with Elaine Heddle.) was born 15 May 1754 in Bible record (Ulster Co to Tioga Co,NY), and died 6 August 1825 in Mulks cem, 71 y 2 mo 21 da (bible).  He married (1) UNKNOWN Abt. 1780.  She was born Abt. 1760 in m abt 1780, and died Abt. 1785.  He married (2) ANNA(AMY) Abt. 1786.  She was born 9 April 1767 in unknown, m abt 1785, and died 19 January 1839 in Straits Corner,Tioga Co NY.

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"
    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?
1797,12 Feb  John Byas & Ann Cantine  b Mathew 1796 Marbletown Reformed Dutch Church
1791-1807  7 more children
1794 Pg 295 Sylvester's History of Ulster Co mentions Abraham Boice as inhabitant of Marbletown
1800 census I brut force scanned all of Marbletown & several other Ulster Twps - nothing. Then FOUND THEM!
         Abraham Buys Pg 197 bottom of page  21110  11010 00 he & Wf are 26-45. U10 John & Abram Jr, 10-16 unknown,
        16-26 Peter. Fem Naoma & Margaret.

         26-45 Anna(Amy). Peter Bise is in Spencer Twp, Tioga Co. This spelling is unique to 1810 census. It sure caused a
         lot of extra time.
1810 census Sylvester White, m to Margaret Boice in 1805, is in Middletown Township, SE corner Delaware Co, NY
         near Shandaken
1812/14  Abraham Boice settled the hamlet of Boiceville, Tioga Co NY which is the former name of West Slaterville (map
          only shows  Slaterville Springs).   It occurs to me now that this could be Jr. -  source Diary in Tioga Co Hist Soc.
           Landmarks of Thompkins Co - ABRAHAM BOICE, JR came in from Ulster county in 1816 and first cleared
           lands in the town of Dryden. T/Caroline historian says Abram Jr came in 1812
1816  Sharon Scofield: "Abraham was an early settler of Caroline and came over the turnpike from Tongue Gore
          (Tongore Cemetery, Rt 213 near Olivebridge across the reservoir from Boiceville) about 6 miles from
           Marbletown or Stone Ridge, NY in 1816 and bought property from Capt.Robison". Source: CharlesF Mulks

1816 Landmarks of Tompkins Co - Caroline. Abraham,Sr bought out Capt Robinson, who lived on the Smiley farm.
          Henry Quick and Moses & Simeon Schoonmaker were then living near.
1820 Tioga Co,NY 3x5 cards  a Jacob Willsey Diary P61 shows Abm Boice, and 1820 P67 Caroline the same three
          that show as Boyce in the 1820 census. Since the area is spelled Boiceville, I will go with that.

1823 Slaterville Post Office. Chapt 15, Caroline Landmarks of Tompkins Co. The Slaterville House
          was a hotel built many years ago and kept at various periods by Zophar T MCLUSKY and
          six or more others. In 1971 when the springs began to be developed, and the reputation of the
         waters became known, W J Carns took this house, renamed it the Magnetic Springs House, enlarged
         and improved it, beautified the grounds, drilled for a supply of the water, and opened it to the public.

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

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.

1869   Whoa! After all these years. S Bois is in Dist 7, Monroe Twsp, 1869 Atlas by Beers -  one mile from the
            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?

        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.

         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.

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

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.
1936  Cemetery plot , the marker faces the Main Street, which was the old direction of the cemetery.
             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,Sept 1 Fred Mingos   Bradford Reporter 9/8/1898  in Chemung, by Rev S B Kieney
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
           Waverly Hospital.
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
          with son John and Jeanine. They encouraged me not to come up to Monroeton for the funeral!
         Apparently there was a written document asking no one to be in the cemetery for the burial?

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.

           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.
1956,Dec  He got someone on New Years day to replace an engine gasket in my 1952 Plymouth so I could
            go back to USAF flying school at Marianna , Fla.  Wow, again he was there for me when needed.
1958  In an unfortunate incident involving Robert Lee, my Dad left (sold out?) the partnership in Wysox Lumber.
1958-1966 Bookkeeper,clerk at Meredith Bottling Works. Margaret did the same job during WW2 while
              Jimmy Meredith was away.
1960's   He drove to Dayton & Kettering 3 times- sum 1961, Aug 1962 and 1965. They loaned me  $3500 to buy
              the Skyline Mobile home, which we brought in through Indiana at night. It exceeded the Ohio cab/trailer
             length of  60'. I used their picture from my 1962 wedding for an article in the Bradford Co History, publ 1995
1965,April  They moved back to Monroeton to his childhood home - now numbered 310 Main.
1967 - 1972 He was part-time bookkeeper at Gulf Oil Co, East Towanda, Treasurer of Towanda Elks,
             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.
1968,April   Leah, his mother, passed away. It's odd, but I never heard him mention Leah or Fred? In several mid
            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.

Cause of Death: blocked arteries
Medical Information: bifocals all his life;wore white socks to prevent color leakage to his bad ankle; got winter head colds;had severe headaches after parties (Cluster headaches?) He was very strong.

           Mom hosted him . I arranged a date for him with Shirley Page.
1955, May  Mother wrote me often while I was in college. Her letter after Henry left the Lumber Yard was a shocker.

           Mrs. Mingos died Wednesday evening of smoke inhalation when her home caught 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
           of laughs. May she find happyness and joy in her eternal life.

Cause of Death: smoke inhalation
Medical Information: high blood pressure, reading glasses, maybe a bleeding problem near the end, cancer in her sibblings.

                                                WHAT IS PAST IS PROLOGUE
       In order to move into the future one needs to examine the past. "Honor thy father and mother that it may be well with thee and that thou mayest live long upon the earth".   'People shouldn't be forgotten' TV 9/28/03 Cold Case

        desease), and I have a diary note that the Dr. advised me not to go out for football. I don't remember Henry
        encouraging me later to go back out for football my Senior year. He had broke an ankle in his senior year at
       Towanda. This 1948 -49 stretch may have been the highlight of my athletics.

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.

                   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.
