Generation One




1. CHARLES1 WOLVERTON (866) was born circa 1660 at England. He married Mary Leet (867) circa 1697 at Darby, Pennsylvania. He died in 1746 at Hunterdon Co., New Jersey.
He Charles Wolverton was a Quaker . June 6th 1721 Charles Woolverton is written as present on the Bench; This office included also that of Judge. {#13}** ** {#13}From the Book 'Descendants of Andrew Woolverton' by Royal Allen Wolverton page 103 of the Appendix The Breeches Bible {#13}The 'Breeches Bible' was a Bible owned by Charles Woolverton I, in which he wrote the following: 'Charles Woolverton, his book, bought of Hugh Huddy of Burlington, N.J., in the year of 1704, and it cost me thirty shillings, and this I give to my oldest son that he may learn the just man's steps, when I am dead and gone; for in my life, much love I had to read this Holy Book.' Thus, Charles Woolverton inscribed this copy of the Breeches Bible, printed in Geneva, Switzerland, April 10th, 1560. It was printed by Roland Hall and other eminent Protestants who were forced to leave England by Queen Mary, the Catholic queen, because of their religion. This edition of the Bible was dedicated to Queen Elizabeth and called upon her to avenge the wrongs to Protestants during the reign of her predecessor. It's called the 'Breeches' Bible because of the peculiar translation appearing in Genesis, Chapter 3. verses 6 and 7, 'So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, she took of its fruit and ate and she also gave some to her husband and he ate. Then the eyes of both were opened and they knew they were naked, and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons.' This was translated, 'When their eyes were o;need they mad unto themselves, breeches out of fig leaves.' ** ** {#13}During the 18th Century, the Breeches Bible passed out of the hands of the Woolvertons. One hundred years later it was purchased at an auction sale and was presented by the purchaser to one of the descendants of Dinah Woolverton, granddaughter of the first Charles, through his son, Roger. Dinah married a Tomlinson, and in 1938 the Bible was in the hands of Mrs. Francis J Tomlinson of Florida.

'Stew' Wolverton None of the data has been verified by my self J.D.H. _______________________________________________________________ __ ** {#13}Greetings, one and all. I know that things out here have seemed to be rather quiet lately, but I have still been working on the family. I have been working on getting the descendants of Dennis (2) together for David Macdonald, and this has clicked on a number of points of previous confusion for me. One of the things I had dug up was a family history written in 1912 by Linus Woolverton; I have been hacking through a digital version of it for a couple of weeks. I thought I would share its content with the members of the list, as it mentions things of interest to all of us, not just descendants of Dennis. With this in mind, I will be excerpting from it in a few parts (it runs about 30 pages in its original form). Here is some background: Linus was an agricultural scientist with an interest in family history. From about 1868 until 1912, when this missive was written, he sporadically pursued information about the Woolverton family. What follows is a transcribed version of the original typescript. The original is in the possession of my great-uncle, Ralph Woolverton, who also made the digital transcription. At one point, I also had a photocopy of the original, but through 20 years and 8 moves, it has managed to disappear on me. ** {#13}_______________________________________________________________ __ {#13}THE WOOLVERTONS {#13}Charles Woolverton, Gentleman, who sailed from Dorsetshire, England for America about the year 1680, was the progenitor of the family of Woolvertons in America. The family seems to have been an old one in England, appearing under various forms of spelling, as for example, Wolferstan, Woolverstone, Wolverton, and Woolverton. There is a town called Wolverton in middle England, and a station of that name near Sandringham. Woolveraton Park and gardens at Ipswich is one of the largest and most beautiful estates in Suffolk. Perhaps the oldest traces of the name in England appear near Blackgary in the southern part of the Isle of Wight. One family descended from Robert Wolferston or Woolverstone, who made his will in 1492 lived in Staffordshire, England and occupied Statford Hall. In an old Book of Heraldry in the Library of the University of Toronto in 1868 I found a coat of arms of the Woolverton family, which contained on the face three wolfsheads d'argent with broad band d'or, and which I roughly copied. It had as motto: 'Que sera sera.' Another shield belonging to a family of Wolvertons in Wolverton county, Buckinghamshire dating back to the time of Henry III bore arms described as Az; an eagle displayed or over all a bend ga (i.e. a rend bend viz., two lines drawn across, representing a shoulder belt). There are six parishes of the name Wolverton in England, viz., One each in Somerset, Bucks, St. Georges (Bucks Co.), Hants, Norfolk and Warwick. In the Books of the Preragative Court of Chancery, London, England, many very similar names appear between 1650 and 1720 and among these Fraser Woolverton, Stafford, Oct. 1712, Humphrey Woolverton, Middlesex, 1718 Leeds 73), Eleanor Woolverton, Stafford, 1712 (Aston 129), Fraser Woolferstone, Stafford, 1715. At Basingstoke, there is the Wolverton rectory, and the following is a letter from the rector Rev. A. H. Cave, addressed to Dr. Theron Woolverton, Grimsby, Ontario. {#13}{#13}'My Dear Sir: I am very sorry I was not at home when you called here, but my daughters have told me the purport of your visit, and since my return home a short time since, I have been unable to find your name in the registrar books of this Parish. There is another Wolverton Parish in Bucks. The name of my Parish has been variously spelt, sometimes Woolverton. In Domesday Book it is Wolfre-ton, the town of Wolfre, who from his name was probably a Saxon invader who possessed himself of these lands.' Concerning Charles Woolverton, our ancester, tradition is that he came to America about the year 1682 along with Sir William Penn, and that he came from Wolverhampton, England, the 'ham' meaning town; the 'ton' a mound of earthwork for defence, hence meaning The fortified town of Wolfre. This would not conflict with the statement that he sailed from Dorsetshire. Very early records of the family are to be found in some books on the early history of the Isle of Wight, which in September,1909, were in possession of Mr. Mellor, an old resident of Black Gary. Near this place in the Parish of St.Lawrence is 'Old Woolverton' a building so old and so far in ruins that it puzzles the antiquary. The name 'Woolverton House' is on the gateposts; while at Sharewell, near Chale P.O. is a very ancient stone house called the Woolverton Manor House. Here lived in the 14th century, Sir Ralph de Woolverton who owned four hundred acres of land around the house. At Woolverton Undercliff are to be seen the remains of a chapel built by Sir Ralph de Woolverton in 1370 A.D. Sir Ralph also paid tithes for his domaine to the priory of Carisbrooke. In the list of armed men made in the reign of Edward III the name of Sir Ralph appears as having contributed two bowmen for the defence of the island. It would appear from his name that Sir Ralph was of Saxon origin or perhaps one of the followers of William the Conqueror who came across from Normandy in 1066 and apportioned out grants of land to his faithful followers, among whom may have been Sir Ralph of the town of Wolfre or in short: de Wolfre-ton'. During the reign of Charles II of England, there was little religious liberty for Protestants. Many men of strong convictions looked toward America whither some sixty years previous the Pilgrim Fathers had gone and founded a colony. These men were of various parties such as Puritans, Independents, Quakers and Churchmen and among them such men as William Penn and George Fox who secured from the Crown large estates in what is now known as Pennsylvania and New Jersey. No wonder that the example of so many brave men and true setting out for America, led Charles Woolverton to dispose of his property in England and come along with his friends Fox and Penn to invest in American lands. So about the year 1682 we find Charles sailing from Dorsetshire to America. Charles is called 'Gentleman' in the records of that time, which in those days signified a man of such means as to be able to live without work. It appears that Charles was then identified with the Quakers, as we find in Consultation with the Secretary of the Friends' Library in Philadelphia in March, 1912. He reported as follows: 'Charles Woolverton was a member of the Society of Friends, as his name is mentioned in the Minutes of Burlington Monthly Meeting about twenty four times, the first mention being made in the year 1704. The records of Chesterfield Monthly Meeting of Friends show that 9th month, 4th day, 1731, Charles Woolverton produced a certificate from the Burlington Monthly Meeting of Friends and that in the 10th month, 2nd day, 1731, he was appointed overseer of the Friends settled in Bethlehem (Frenchtown) which is not far from where the tract of land purchased by the same Charles was located.' (Col. M.D. Woolverton, Vancouver Barrack, Washington Terr. 1897). There are some reasons for believing of Charles Woolverton having emigrated from England with his brothers John and Gabriel, and after living for a short time on Long Island moved about 1690 to the Pennsylvania bank of the Delaware River from which he moved soon after to Burlington County on the opposite bank. Besides being a man of considerable means, he appears to have been one of the leading men of the community. On the erection of Hanlerder County, he was in 1721 elected one of the first five Justices of the Peace and was thereafter frequently called upon to witness his neighbors' wills. {#13}The following memoranda was furnished by H. E. Deats, Flemington, NJ. 'Woolvertom Memo Furnished by H.E.Deats of Flemington, NJ.' Charles was witness to will of Richard Caine (Keine) of Arnell, Nov.7, 1727. Charles was witness to will of John Mills, of Chesterfield, Burlington Co., April 17, 1709.' Charles bought 1666 acres March 2, 1714 of Wm. Riddle, near present village of Rosemont, Delaware, Hunlerder County. He is said to have come from Wolverhampton, England, but stopped on Long Island for a time. A number of his descendents still live in this county, but not all have the name of Woolverton. There are probably fifty families who have been internamed with them. {#13}{#13}Marriage Licences, N.J.

In Book A.A.A. 19 Charles is grantee of fifty acres near Mount Carmel in Burlington County, N.J.,from John Dixon and wife Elizabeth (Chadwick)(her second husband) to their son-in-law Charles having married Mary Chadwick, daughter of John Chadwick, who purchased land in Burlington in 1689. On March 2, 1714, Charles purchased 1665 acres of land in Township of Arnell (vide Book of Deeds B.B.B.P. 429) beautifully situated along the east bank of the Delaware River, a portion of which is still in Woolverton hands, as the farm of Rev. W. H. Woolverton, near Stockton, N.J. This old estate extended from Rosemont nearly to Prattsville. In May 1719 Charles sold 284 acres of this land to George Fox and in August 25, 1745, there was land conveyed to Dennis Woolverton, which he willed to his son Jonathan. The graves of George Fox, Dennis Woolverton, and probably the first Charles, with many others, these early inhabitants are in Rosemont Cemetery. _______________________________________________________________ __ {#13}{#13}Please note that I have left the typographical and grammatical errors intact; I don't know if these have come from the original or the transcription.

He Thomas WOLVERTON (Note provided by William Gorman of Plano, Texas
Thomas Woolverton was born in Hunterdon County, NJ cir 1737 and in 1750, at the age of 13, moved with his parents to Sussex County, NJ. Thomas appears on the tax rolls for New Town, Sussex Co., NJ, in 1773-74. Thomas was captain of his own company of New Jersey Militiamen from October 1775 to at least October 1776. In June 1777, however, he was accused and convicted of "offending against the form of allegiance". He went to jail in Newton, Sussex Co., NJ for six months and had his property confiscated and then sold at auction on 17 April 1780. He was enumerated living in Newton in the Revolutionary Census of 1778-80. For the next three years, his whereabouts was unknown. Since he had a brother, John, who lived in Washington/Greene County, PA, it is highly possible that Thomas & Mary Wolverton and their children lived there during that period. Other theories have them living in New York City, which remained under British control throughout much of the War and was a safe haven for Tories. Then, in July 1783, he and his family, along with the Pettits, Crowells, and Bartons (other convicted Loyalist families of Sussex Co., NJ) set sail from New York for Northampton, St. John River, New Brunswick, Canada aboard the ship "Lord Townsend". The ship's passenger list shows Thomas Woolverton with one female (his wife), 2 children equal or over 10, and 3 children under 10. Since at least one child, Thomas the oldest, stayed behind in PA and another son, James Barton Woolverton was born in NB, we can conclude that Thomas Woolverton had at least 7 children.

(The following is an excerpt from a school essay written in 1868 by William C. Raymond of Woodstock, NB that includes the names of the first settlers in Carleton Co. (Refer to Vital Stat. from NB Newspapers, Vol. 27)

"In 1783 when the Loyalists landed in Saint John, the whole district contained in Carleton County was an unbroken forest and its only inhabitants were the Aborigines of the country. In the summer of that year, Major B P Griffith with other Loyalists and their families (accompanied by a number of soldiers) were promised grants of land, provided with boats, and three years provisions by the Government. They ascended the Saint John river, propelling the heavily laden boats with poles or towing them with ropes until they landed a few miles below the present site of the town of Woodstock and became the first settlers in the County. Major Griffith occupied the farm upon which his son now resides. In 1790, Rev. Frederick B. Dibblee, a minister of the Church of England, came to Woodstock and settled on the farm now occupied by his son Colonel L. Dibblee. He was the first, and for 36 years the only, minister above Fredericton. His mission included four parishes: Prince William, Queensbury, Woodstock, and Northampton. At that time the families in Northampton were Woolverton, Larlee, Tompkins, Davenport, Bell, Stanley, Campbell, Phillips and in Woodstock, Griffith, Dibblee, Ketchum, Lane, Young, Smith, Upham, Dickson, Clark, Bell, Fowler, Rogers, McGhee, Bull, and McShafrey. In 1795 the first school was built in Woodstock. James York was the teacher for a number of years, with an allowance of 10 pounds per annum. in 1824, Samual Rice, M. D., came from Houlton, Maine and was the first doctor in Carleton
Co."

In 1785, Thomas-3 petitioned for land in Maugerville, Sunbury Co., NB. He was granted 500 acres on 15 May 1789. On 7 June 1813, he was granted 206 acres in Northampton, York Co., NB. His son Joseph B Woolverton was granted 499 acres on the same date, a short distance from his father's land. The Northampton land was farmed for many generations by Thomas-3 descendents. Thomas Woolverton died there on 14 September 1819 and is buried at the Anglican Church, Woodstock, now Carleton Co., NB.

Thomas may have married twice. Note that a Col. Joseph BARTON was also a militiaman and Loyalist from Sussex Co., NJ and there is some speculation that the one wife of Thomas Woolverton was a Barton. The name " Mary Bell/Mary/Polly Bell " occurs three times in the grandchildren of Thomas. This gives credence to the theory that another of the wives of Thomas was Mary Bell. Another fact supporting the two wife theory is that there was a 24 year span between the birth of his oldest son, Thomas b. 1761 in NJ, and James Barton b. 1785 in NB.

His son Joseph B. (an important question -- does the "B" stand for Bell or Barton?) named one daughter, b. c. 1806, Mary Bell Woolverton. She was baptised 4 Jan 1809 at the Anglican Church, Northampton, Carleton Co., NB. Her death, one day later, is also recorded in the church records. Joseph B. Woolverton named another daughter (b. 10 Jan 1809) Mary -- it was she who married Charles Cochran Bull on 30 July 1832. Elizabeth Ann (Woolverton) Rogers, a daughter of Thomas, named one or her daughters, b. 1794, Polly Bell Rogers. This would give credence to the theory that a wife of Thomas was a Mary "Polly" Bell.

However, the Woolverton family of NB used other family names for their children. Most prominently that of BARTON. Almost every generation of NB Wolvertons includes a Joseph Barton WOLVERTON. Other BARTON names are found in the children or grandchildren of Thomas-3 are James Barton-4
WOLVERTON, Catherine Barton ROGERS, Charles 'Henry' ROGERS, Richard 'Barent' ROGERS, and Catherine WOLVERTON. In fact, the use of BARTON names is much more extensive than the use of the name Mary Bell.

(Much of the above information is based on data provided by Mary W. Wallace via internet messages and postings in 2000-2001).



More About Thomas WOLVERTON:
Burial: Anglican Cemetery Woodstock, NB. He

Thomas Wolverton Loyalist.


Thomas Woolverton was the son-in-law of Col. Joseph Barton, the most
notorious Loyalist of Sussex County. In 1777, Thomas along with the Pettit and
Barton families were identified as Tories by the local authorities. He was
convicted under a law providing that any person who aided the British enemy
between April 1775 and October 1776 and did not take an oath of allegiance to
the state was subject to conviction for high treason and forfeiture of his
property.
Thomas spent six months in jail and on April 17, 1780, his confiscated
property in Sussex County, NJ was sold at auction. Where the family lived
between 1780 and 1783 is not known, but they may have gone to Washington
Co. PA to live with his brother John's family until the end of the American
Revolution in 1783.

In July of 1783 Thomas ans family removed from New York to New Brunswick Canada. He immigrated in Jul 1783 to New Brunswick, Canada; Emigration: 1783, Sailed from NY City to New Brunswick with other Loyalist.

23. THOMAS4 WOLVERTON (2289) (Thomas3, Thomas2, Charles1) was born circa 1765. He married Elizabeth (--?--) - Watts-Glendening (2489). He died circa 1808 at Franklin Twp., Green Co., Pennsylvania.
He Thomas WOLVERTON (Note as provided by William Gorman of plano, Texas.)
Thomas Wolverton is the great-grandson of Charles Wolverton (b.1659/1660 in Staffordshire, England) who came to America with William Penn and other Quaker settlers and is the reported progenitor of all known Wolvertons in America. When Thomas' father, Thomas Wolverton of Sussex Co., NJ, moved to New Brunswick in 1783, it is believed that Thomas (aged 19) stayed behind and then traveled to Franklin Twp., Greene Co., PA where he lived with his uncle, John Wolverton. It was there that he met and married Elizabeth Watts Glendening about 1799. Sometime before 1807, Thomas and Elizabeth moved back to live on her property in Virginia. Thomas died sometime between 1808 and 1810. Elizabeth continued to pay taxes on her property in Virginia live there into the 1820s.

The following letter from Mary W. Wallace is a summary of her research into the connection of Thomas Wolverton-4 and Tilman Wolverton who moved to the Republic of Texas in 1843.

To: <williamz@flash.net> (William D. Gorman of Plano, Texas)
Subject: Thomas/Tilman Wolverton
Date: Thursday, July 20, 2000 11:23 AM

William,

The case for Thomas-4 (Thomas-3, Thomas-2, Charles-1) as the father of Tilman Wolverton is circumstantial and unproved, but is a "logical" conclusion based on currently known information. To get to this conclusion, it is necessary to work backward from what is known about Elizabeth (___) WATTS GLENDENING WOLVERTON of Monongalia Co., (W)VA.

Elizabeth ___ m. John WATTS in Maryland. They removed to (West) Virginia where sons Richard, John, and Harmon were born. ("History of Monongalia Co., West Virginia", by Samuel T. Wiley, 1883, p. 601)

John WATTS died intestate in Monongalia Co., Virginia on 27 Jan 1795 leaving his widow and five children, the sons mentioned above and daughters Ann and Susanna. (Monongalia Co. Court Records, env. 144)

Elizabeth WATTS, widow, is listed in the Monongalia Co. personal property tax lists for 1795 and 1796.

Elizabeth WATTS then married Andrew GLENDENING before 13 Sept 1796 when she, as Elizabeth GLENDENING on that date, "failed to give security on the estate of John WATTS". (Monongalia Co. Order Bk 1, p. 58)

Elizabeth does not appear in the Monongalia tax lists for 1797-1800, but she does reappear as Elizabeth WOLVERTON from 1801-1804, 1806/7, 1809/10, 1819-1821. She also appears in the 1809 tax list of Franklin Twp., Greene Co., PA.

In the 1810 US Census, Elizabeth WOLVERTON appears as head of household back in Monongalia Co., Virginia. The likely breakdown of the individuals listed with her is:

female 26-45: Elizabeth ___ WATTS GLENDENING WOLVERTON
males 16-26: Richard, John, and Harmon WATTS
male 10-16: Robert GLENDENING
males under 10: Thomas WOLVERTON (b.c. 1800)
??? (possibly a Joseph, named for his father's brother, b.c. 1803)
Tilman WOLVERTON (b.c. 1807)
Vincent WOLVERTON (b.c. 1808)
females under 10: Eliza WOLVERTON
Priscilla WOLVERTON

In her will of 25 Aug 1826 (Monongalia Co. Order Bk 9, p. 179), Elizabeth W. G. WOLVERTON names her WOLVERTON children Tilman, Vincent, Eliza and Priscilla. It would seem likely that Thomas and the next oldest son had already moved away. Thomas is probably the Thomas of Union Co., IN in 1850 who had a son named Vincent.

So it would seem that Elizabeth W. G. married before 1800 a Thomas WOLVERTON who was from the Franklin Twp. area of Washington/Greene Co., PA. The book "The Tenmile Country and its Pioneer Families" by Howard Leckey includes a Thomas WOLVERTON in a 1789 list of accounts at William Rhodes' trading post and says that the Rhodes' account lists are "almost a census for what became Franklin Township."

Most of the Wolvertons of Washington/Greene Counties, PA at that time were from the line of John-3 (Thomas-2, Charles), brother of the Thomas-3 who went to NB. However, the wives and whereabouts of John's son Thomas and his several grandsons named Thomas are all well documented. I believe that the Thomas WOLVERTON of the 1789 Rhodes' accounts and the Joseph WOLVERTON whose land in Greene Twp., Washington Co., PA was sold for taxes in 1786 (Western PA Genealogical Quarterly, Vol. 2, # 2, Nov 1975) were the sons of Thomas-3, and that they left Sussex Co., NJ, and went to SW PA where their uncle John had settled.

Now, as to the New Brunswick, Canada Wolvertons: Thomas-3 (father of Thomas-4, Joseph above) was accused and convicted of being a Tory in 1779, and his Sussex Co., NJ, property was confiscated in 1780. He and his then family sailed for New Brunswick from New York with other Loyalist refuges on the ship Lord Townsend in 1783 (Thomas-4 would have been 18 and grown at this time). To the best of my knowledge, all of the NB Wolvertons are descended from Joseph B(arton?) WOLVERTON, b. 1780, and James Barton WOLVERTON, b. 1785, sons or grandsons of Thomas-3. For some time, I had thought that these two were the sons of Joseph-4, but no record exists that this Joseph was ever in NB. I currently think that Joseph and James, the ancestors of the NB Wolvertons were children of Thomas-3 and a second wife, possibly a BARTON.

I hope this helps with most of your questions and provides a little genealogical grist for the mill.

The Wolvertons - Limestone County. Texas Pioneers
As Told By William Clarence Wolverton (1867-1955)

My grandfather, Tillman Wolverton, and his wife Aguer (Agnes McVickers) were
born, reared and married in Illinois. note by Wm. D. Gorman on July 19,
2000: Her name was Agnes, and both were born in Virginia, after they were
married they lived for 8 years in Lawrence County, Ohio before moving to
Illinois and then to Texas. In 1842 they joined a group of immigrants with
ox-drawn Prairie Schooner (wagons) and started for the Republic of Texas
arriving at Tennessee Colony (Anderson County) in 1843. In early 1844 they
traveled to the west bank of Plummer's Creek, one mile west of where Mexia
is today. An old sea pirate named John Franks who had been run out of
Galveston Island by the U.S. Government had "squatted" on their land, built
a dugout and covered it with dry buffalo hides to live in and protect
himself from the Tehuacanas, Waco and Coman­che Indians.

Tillman Wolverton traded John Franks two yoke of oxen and a wagon for his
dug-out home and his claim on all the land around as far as the eye could
see. This land (at that time) was in Roberton County, Republic of Texas in
1844. In 1846, Limestone County was created out of Robertson County.
Tillman Wolverton and his fami­ly were one of the thirteen families that
organized Limestone County.

In the spring of 1846 Tillman built four log houses with dirt floors so the
family could move out of the dugout house. In 1848 a log courthouse was
built at Springfield (near Navasota River) the first coun­ty seat of
Limestone County.

Tillman Wolverton started the first stagecoach line to haul United States
mail and passengers from Springfield to Wash­ington-On-The-Brazos. The
Tehuacana Indians were friendly to white settlers and grandfather would let
the men and squaws ride on his stagecoach to help keep the Comanche Indians
from stealing the horses or holding up the stagecoach.

Tillman and Aguer (Agnes) had seven children. One, my father, was John
Wolverton. When the Civil War started in 1860 he left home to fight and when
the war ended in 1865, he was in Homer, Louisiana. It was there that he met
and married Mattie L Evans, my mother, in December 1865. They had four
children - three girls and myself. I was born July 7, 1867.

Settling in Limestone County stopped during the war years. After 1865
grandfa­ther Tillman hauled pine lumber with ox wagons from (the) Tennessee
Colony saw mills to Limestone County to build houses. With the help of his
ex-slaves, George Savage and Jack Anderson, it took six weeks to make the
round trip using three yoke of oxen to each wagon. (The distance between
Tennessee Colony and Mexia was about 60 miles as the crow flies)

In 1870 Groesbeck was the terminal of the H&TC Railroad. The land for
Groes­beck was given to the railroads by the Anglins to locate the town. In
1874 the old pine lumber courthouse at Springfield burned along with all the
county records. A county election was held to move the coun­ty seat from
Springfield to Groesbeck, the center of the county and a railroad town
between eight and ten thousand people. (Tillman/Tilman died in 1874 at the
age of 67).

(Martha is daughter of William Clarence Woolverton).


He Tilman WOLVERTON (Note Provided by William Gorman of Plano, Texas.)
Tilman WOLVERTON was born in Monongalia County, (W) Virginia on January 31, 1807 to Thomas WOLVERTON (b. 1761, NJ) and Elizabeth ____ Watts GLENDENING.

Tilman was married twice to two McVickers sisters. He first married ____ McVickers in Monongalia Co., Virginia about 1830 and had one son, Norvell, born there on July 3, 1831. (Source: Wolverton Cemetery marker recorded by William C. Wolverton. Note that the 1850 US Census for Limestone Co., Texas incorrectly list this son as Nevel). Tilman's first wife very likely died after childbirth. On June 1, 1834 Tilman married his first wife's sister, Agnes McVickers in Muskingum County, Ohio (just across the Ohio River from Monongalia Co., (W) Virginia. ( Source: Marriage records for the State of Ohio, extracted from LDS microfiche index page 59,601).

Tilman and Agnes's first son, Vincent, was born there in March, 1837. They continued to live in Lawrence County, Ohio until sometime after the 1840 US Census (Source: The 1840 US Census for Lawrence County, Ohio, page 18, lists "Tillman WOLVERTON" as the head of the household and shows a male between 30-40 (Tilman), a female between 20-30 (Agnes), a male between 5-10 (Norvell), a male between 0-5 (Vincent) and one male between 20-30 (likely a brother of Tilman or Agnes) is taken and then, according to family tradition as documented by Tilman's grandson, William Clarence Wolverton, they joined a wagon train in Illinois in 1842 and arrived in Tennessee Colony, Anderson County, Republic of Texas in the Spring of 1843.

Their second son Mac C. is born in November, 1840 and third son, John B. is born January 14, 1843. Now, according to the 1850 US Census for Limestone Co., Texas, these births were both in Illinois. However, William Clarence states in his family history that John B. was born in Tennessee Colony, Texas (which is consistent with the story of the migration to Texas) and we believe that Mac C. was born in Ohio and that the family did not live in Illinois but merely went there in 1842 to join the wagon train to Texas.

In late 1843, Tilman and his family made the 60 mile trip from Tennessee Colony to a spot on the West Bank of Plummer's Creek, one mile west of present day Mexia, Limestone County. John Franks, an old sea Pirate, a run-away from Galveston Island and the United States Federal Government, squatted on land Tilman had contracted for at Plummers Creek. He lived in a "dug-out" covered with Buffalo hides. In 1844, Tilman traded John Franks two yoke of Oxen and a Prairie Schooner Wagon for his "dug-out," giving Tilman claim to all land as "far as eyes could see".

Tilman Wolverton and family were one of thirteen families that organized Limestone County. The Indian Treaty of 1844 made it safe for the old Parker settlers, the Anglins, Bates, Davis, Polk, Love, Wolveton, Henry and many others to locate on the site and found the town of Springfield as the county seat. In 1846-1848, a log courthouse was built at Springfield by the families and their slaves.

General E. A. Mexia and his sister, Adaline Matilda Mexia, came to this county in 1850, and established the Pedro Varela Eleven League Spanish Land Grant. They sold land claims to Tilman for one dollar per acre. Tilman established the first stage coach line carrying U.S. Mail and passengers from Springfield to the Republic of Texas capitol at Washington on the Brazos. He was paid $500 annually to operate the stage line plus ten cents per mile credit toward his Mexia land purchase. Tilman would let Tehuacana Indian chiefs and squaws ride on the stage coach to keep the Comanche Indians from stealing his horses or holding up the stage coach.

In the spring of 1846 Tilman built four log houses with dirt floors so the family could move out of the dugout house. After 1865, Tilman hauled pine lumber from Tennessee Colony saw mills to Limestone County to build houses. With the help of his ex-slaves, George Savage and Jack Anderson, it took six weeks to haul enough lumber for the houses using three yoke of oxen to each wagon.

Tilman started out in Texas primarily in the business of raising cattle. After the Civil War and with the arrival of railroads and cotton gins, he began to get more into cotton farming. By the time of his death in 1874, Tilman owned many hundreds of acres of land which he passed on to his widow and gave to his children.

On Nov 6, 1860 Tilman gave 100 acres to his son Vincent. On Feb 15, 1970 he gave an undisclosed amount property "for love and affection" to son Mack. On June 16, 1874, M.C. (Mack) WOLVERTON bought estate land from other Tilman heirs listed as Widow of T. WOLVERTON, Vincent and John.

On August 11, 1874 Vincent WOLVERTON paid $300 for a brick kiln and $9/hundred for extra bricks on property owned by Mrs. Agnes WOLVERTON (Tilman's widow).

Between 1875 and 1899, over 50 entries on the Wolvertons are found in the records of the Limestone County Clerk's office involving deeds, bills of sale, lien releases and power of attorney. After the turn of the century, an oil field was discovered under their property and during the 1920's to 1940's numerous oil lease transactions are recorded in the names of Tilman's descendants.

Biography Information for on Isaac Wolverton who came to Hamiton County Ohio in 1812 and to Butler County in 1827 History & Biographical cyclopedia of Butler County Ohio-1882.]


Isaac WOLVERTON was an old settler, coming here in the beginning of the settlement of the country. He was a native of Washington County, Pennsylvania, and was the son of colonel Thomas WOLVERTON, who went out as a private in the Revolutionary War at the age of seventeen, and retired at the close of the contest as a colonel. Isaac WOLVERTON came to Hamilton County in 1812, settling in Wayne Township, in Butler County, in 1827. During his sojourn in Hamilton County he was married to Miss Catherine FRAZEE, a native of that county, by whom he had nine children, five of whom survive. All of them are married. William lives in Wayne Township; Thomas lives in Redwood County, Illinois; Jane, wife of John BRELSFORD, lives in Wayne Township, and Elizabeth, wife of Jesse WEST, lives in Richland County, Illinois.
Mr. WOLVERTON was in the War of 1812, holding the rank of major under General Webb, in General Harrison's army, and serving during the entire war. By industry he accumulated a large property, owning at the end five hundred and eighty acres, which he divided among his children. He and his wife are both dead.
William, the son, was born in Hamilton County in 1820, coming to Butler County with his father and mother in 1827. He married Melinda ALLEN in 1850 [sic]. She was born in the township where she now lives in 1829. By her he has had seven children, five of them now living. Sarah is married to George PAULLIN, but the other children-David, Anne E., Mary Jane, and Etna [sic]- live at home. Mr. WOLVERTON has held several offices. He has been treasurer of Wayne township for twenty-six years, from 1854 to the present time. He had some help from his father when he began, but his present fortunate pecuniary condition is mainly the result of his own exertions. He now owns about three hundred and seventy acres, and devotes his time chiefly to farming and stock-raising.

Plymouth was first settled in 1869 by Joseph & William Merrill (brothers), Harman D. Pierson, John Taylor and Isaac E. Zundel. The men and their families lived in tents their first summer, but then laid out a one-block townsite in the fall and three cabins were built for those who stayed the winter. The area became known as "Square Town." In the early 1870's the town was named "Plymouth."

Solomon Warner was the first child born in Plymouth. His parents, Amos and Phoebe Warner were visiting the home of Elizabeth and Isaac Zundel and their son was born January 13, 1870.

Walter Felts was the first school teacher in Plymouth. A schoolhouse was built in 1871, and the school district became known as "Zerahemla."

For many years, Plymouth was part of the Portage Ward. Harmon D. Pearson served as the presiding officer of the Plymouth Branch. The Plymouth Ward was organized in 1884 with Myron J. Richards serving as bishop; Garret H. Wolverton, first counselor; and James H. Hess, second counselor. The areas of Riverside and Fielding were part of this ward.

Plymouth was put on the map in the early 1880's when it got it's first post office. Don Lamb was the first postmaster. Until this time, mail was delivered to the home of Harmon D. Pierson. Garret Wolverton carried the mail from Corrine to Plymouth,and, for a while, Ben Williams carried the mail from Collinston.

Incorporation:
Written 1969 by Nola Star

In 1935 Plymouth was incorporated. $35,000 was raised through government aid to install a water system. In 1936-37 the water was piped into the homes and most of the old wells that had furnished water through the years were filled up. According to information kept by Annice Lamb, the telephone line went through Plymouth about 1900, the main highway was built about 1910, and changed to west of town in 1954, and electric lights came in April 1928.

Mayors who have served Plymouth have been: Orvil Nish, Keith Lamb, Carl Starr, Austin Nish, Clyde Steed, and Jesse Lamb.

Plymouth is a small rural community that lies approximately thirty miles north of Brigham City. It was first settled in 1869 by Harmon Pierson, Isaac Zundell, John Taylor, and William and Joseph Merrell. They lived in tents the first summer, and in the fall they laid out a one-block townsite which was divided into lots. Like Israel of old, they cast lots for their part and each set up his tent on the site he drew. For many years Plymouth was known as Square Town. In the fall, three log cabins were erected.
The area provided good grazing and farming. A reservoir was built, and the water was used to power a saw mill. Much of the lumber was used in the home construction in Bear River City and in the construction of Plymouth's first school in 1871. The school district was known as Zarahelmla.

In 1886-1887 George Mason established a dairy at Mound Springs located about four miles north of Plymouth on land formerly owned by James Cole, a member of the Mormon Battalion. Mound Springs, first settled in 1874, was a stopping place for emigrants. Butter and cheese were made, and the dairy employed seven or eight people.
For many years Plymouth was a part of the Portage Ward, with Harmon Pierson serving as Presiding Elder without counselors. In 1884 the Plymouth Ward was organized with Myron J. Richards as bishop. The ward included what is now Riverside, Fielding and Plymouth. Thomas Archibald was made bishop of Plymouth Ward. When the John W. Hess family and others came from Davis County they settled north of the present site of Fielding, and on June 18, 1891 the East Plymouth Ward was taken from the Plymouth Ward, with Myron J. Richard as bishop in the new ward.

The first post office was in the home of Harmon D. Pierson. Garrett Wolverton carried the mail from Corinne north to Plymouth. Later, Ben Williams of Malad carried the mail from Collinston. A post office was established in the early 1880's, with Don Lamb as the first postmaster.

It is said that the name of Plymouth came from an observation made by one of the early inhabitants. Out for a walk with others, they came upon a large rock, and she observed that it resembled Old Plymouth Rock. All agreed that this would be a good name for the town, and Plymouth replaced the name of Square Town.<p>. He lived in 1850 at Astoria, Fulton Co., Illinois; Living with John & Margart Boyd family.

Biography Information for HORACE M. WOLVERTON, of Duncan, Stephens county, ex-United States Commissioner of the Chickasaw Nation and formerly a prominent practicing attorney of that place, is now the proprietor of, the Chickasaw Nursery, one of the prosperous institutions of this locality. He has been a leading figure in the Indian country since 1892, coming hither from McNairy county, Tennessee, where his birth occurred May 1, 1872, and where his father is still prominent in the profession which he himself has honored. Horace M. obtained his education, preparatory to his professional training, in the common and high schools of his native county. His first work as an independent factor in the world was as a farm hand, at eight dollars per month. As early as possible he left home and ventured into the seductive country of the southwest. Within the present state of Oklahoma, he stopped first at
Ardmore, Carter county, where he took up the study of law with Ledbetter and Bledsoe, but before his admission to the bar he passed on to Duncan and connected himself with its pioneer fire insurance business. At the same time he continued his law studies. In 1894 he was admitted to practice, and continued his professional work in connection with the insurance business. In 1897 he was appointed by Judge Hosea Townsend of the United States court to be United States Commissioner, and he efficiently performed its duties until his resignation of the office in 1900. He was elected to the City Council of Duncan in 1903, and then served as city attorney for two terms. In 1900 he disposed of his insurance business to Sampson and McClure, and embarked in a modest nursery business. He first planted a few pounds of seed on a few lots in Duncan, the proposed product of the enterprise being mostly forest trees and fruit trees. To the surprise of the projector the demand for the young trees became so brisk that he was forced to look for a larger tract of land and for the purpose secured eighty acres east of town, fifty acres of which is now occupied by the very flourishing Chickasaw Nursery. What was originally but a small, uncertain venture, has been developed into one of the most important business establishments of the county. In polities, Mr. Wolverton is a stanch Republican, and his fraternal connection is with the Masonic order, in which he is a Royal Arch.
{#14} {#14} The Wolvertons comprise one of the old and historic families of America, his first ancestors in the United States being Charles and Mary (Dixon) Wolverton, who settled in Amwell township, Hunterdon county, New Jersey, in the early years of the eighteenth century. James T. Wolverton, the father of Horace M., is a native of Shelby county, Tennessee, where he was born in 1845. At an early age he lost his parents, and was reared as a hard working boy on a farm, who was able to obtain little access even to the primitive common schools of that district. As a youth he served three years in the Union army, was captured and exchanged, being placed aboard the steamer "Susquehanna," and as one of eighteen hundred others started for the north. When a few miles above Memphis the boat was literally blown to pieces, and only about three hundred of the passengers escaped. Mr. Wolverton, as one of the fortunates, drifted down the river about nine miles, was finally rescued and taken to Memphis. After the war he was connected for a time with the retail liquor business at Adamsville, Tennessee, and subsequently engaged in farming. He then studied law, with special reference to the prosecution of pension cases at Washington, was admitted by the department of the interior, and has since been profitably and honorably engaged at Adamsville, Tennessee, as United States pension attorney. One of his brothers, the late Dr. Wolverton, was a prominent Democrat of Oklahoma, and made considerable stir in his campaign against Mr. Markham for national committeeman of his party. James T. Wolverton married Sallie, of the following: James H., county judge of Comanche county, Oklahoma; Horace M., of this sketch; Florence, wife of Coleman Alexander, of Selmer, Tennessee; Georgia, who married T. J.Daniels, and resides in Corinth, Mississippi ; Maud, wife of Frank Bell, of Adamsville, Tennessee, and Eugene, a resident of the same city.
{#14} {#14} Horace M. Wolverton was married in Duncan, Stevens county, April 29, 1894, to Maggie C., daughter of Michael Reynolds, who came to Oklahoma from Rockbridge county, Virginia. Mr. Reynolds was one of the staff officers of the famous Confederate commander, Stonewall Jackson, and located in Oklahoma in 1882. The children born to Mr. and Mrs. Wolverton are: Edith, Dorothy, Hester May, Thomas Michael and Royal Allen. Mr. Wolverton is a Republican, a Royal Arch Mason and a citizen of broad and varied talents, and is a valuable factor in the community of his residence.

Reference: 4002. He In the book, Centennial History of Butler County, Ohio, edited by Bert S. Bartlow, et al, published by B. F.

On this irregular and river-indented tract of land the mills of the city largely stand. F. V. DOTY, a great-grandson of Steven VAIL and now city engineer, has the original writing and plat of the first plan of the city. It is probably the oldest paper, in date, connected with the history of Middletown.' page 283. {#13}'Middletown stood as an unincorporated hamlet or village until 1833, when the legislature, on the 11th day of February, passed an act of incorporation, and on the 1st day of April of that year an election for councilmen and village officers was held, resulting in the choice of the following persons: Mayor. I. T. Gibson; recorder, F. J. Tytus; trustees, D. Leibee, H. VAIL, J. R. Russell, S. VAIL and George L. Wrenn. The following are the men who have served as mayors of Middletown: I. T.

In 1898, two leaders in the yearly meeting put together a 20-man expedition called "The Long Beach in Alaska Mining and Trading Company," leased a seventy-two foot schooner, loaded it with a year's worth of supplies and other material for the mission and sailed for Alaska. Using lumber carried north in the schooner, the men built several buildings to expand the facilities of the mission. From 1902 to 1906, Dana and Otha Thomas continued the work, with almost 1000 converted Eskimos added to the Kotzebue Friends Church during their four-year stay. James and Eva Geary joined the work 300 miles up the Kobuk River from Kotzebue at a site James named "Long Beach"!

He Charlie and Bertha Lived on the William Harrod farm near Doniphan NE. for a number of years some of there children were born there after it became a estate and it was sold. they moved to Wyoming. Charlie and Bertha moved to Gillette, WY in Sept. 1923. They bought a farm about four miles south of Gillette where they ran a dairy -milked cows, bottled milk and delivered there product door to door. The farm was sold after Bertha died in 1967. Harrold Hitt (1998) still owns part of that farm which he bought from the estate. Charlie farmed with a team of horses up to the time he passed away. No tractors to pack down his farm ground.

The Hitt Family Charles and Bertha (Harrod) Hitt left Doniphan Nebraska in September 1923 with five children: Ada 9, Ruth 7, Raymond 'Ray' 5, Harold 4, Doris 9 months, in and old Overland touring car for Gillette, Wyoming to make their new home. Mr Hitt had purchased the Arthur Tipton homestead two and one half miles south of Gillette in 1920. His father James E. Hitt came with him and purchase land four miles east of Gillette. The Hitt family sent their possessions (household goods, furniture, some cows and horses, farm equipment and old buggy and 'old Rover') ahead in a railroad immigrant car, which arrived in Gillette ahead of them. A friend, 'Tater' Ralston came along to care for the contents. Their possessions were put in storage to wait their arrival, meanwhile, the Hitt's adventure led across country camping their way. The first night they stopped at a farmers fresh straw pile to fill ticks (Bertha had made) for sleeping on the ground, with little folks in the car. Many days of travel led them over hills, rough roads, high center trails, fording creeks, and flat tires that were fixed along the road. This gave the children a chance to run and play , while Bertha prepared food to eat. On rainy days, curtains were put on the car to keep them dry, but they came safely through.

The excitement of seeing their new home, an old abandoned house high on the hill, along with a 'tar-paper' shack, which was to become a temporary home, mean while, the family found rest with the Bert Harrod family. Ada and Ruth enrolled in the Gillette schools. The shack was moved onto the harvested wheat field and put in liveable repair, finally the furniture and the family moved into the 12x28 space. Daytime, the beds were stacked to gather in one corner with baby's trundel bed roll under and they were home at last. Rains came, the roof leaked, and mud got deep around the door. Work began , moving the 'big' house from the hill top. It took many hours spent in repair. New windows, doors walls covered with blue building paper, a stairway into the attic foe sleeping room. Alas, snows came, it blew in around the windows and the nail holes in the unfinished attic roof. The shack was then moved alongside to become a parlor and bedroom. The family water supply was hauled in until a well could be dug, With hand pump for family and livestock. Many years later a well was drilled and a windmill setup, still the only running water was carried in a bucket, with the command 'hurry'. During the years a cistern was built for rain water supply. The first winter brought hard work, illness and being quarantined in, but soon spring came. It was time for spring planting a garden and fields. A cave also dug for vegetable storage, later a second cave also served as a cooler for milk and food. There was no refrigeration. The Overland car had been traded for milk cows and horses. Our transportation became the old horse and buggy for many years. In a few years a three room house was purchased at the old Peerless Mine sale. It was divided and added to the 'bid' house for added space. The shack was again moved, this time to ).come a shop and garage.

The family was settled into their permanent home. Soon three more children were added, Charles, Maxine and Norma. As time went along, milking cows became a small kitchen operated dairy. The milk was bottled and delivered each day before school with a team of horses and wagon. The milk was delivered house to house, to restaurant and grocery store. Ada was in charge. There were four Hitts and three neighbor boys on their way to school. However, in a few years the dairy was given up and the younger children were sent to the Harrod school three miles down the stock county trail. They drove a team of horses with a two wheeled cart to school, Ray in charge. Ada and Ruth road a school bus to High School. Ada graduated in 1931 and became a teacher. Ruth's health failed, no more school. Im 1932 and 1933 during the depression we started a dairy, with a car to deliver until Charles went to college and Dad sold out. Ray and Harold never finished High School. The rest of the children graduated at Campbell County High School. Doris was our only college graduate, although Charles and Norma attended college in Idaho for two years. The family grew up and scattered into New Mexico, Missouri, Nevada, Kansas and Oregon With three still around Gillette. Charley and Bertha raised eight children, all living (1990) twenty-four grandchildren, twenty-six great grandchildren and three great great grandchildren (1990).

The Hitt farm was divided and sold in estate settling. Harrold lives on the old George Tipton homestead that his father leased for several years and purchased in 1945. The James E. Hitt estate land was sold in 1938 to State Experiential Farm, and later sold to Campbell County for the County Camplex, a growing community center with Theater, Rodeo and Fairgrounds, and Picnic Area.

The Hitt family grew up working together. They were never rich in money, but God blessed them with a happy life, rich in experience and close family ties.

Biography Information for Roy "Rhino" Hitt - P
1903-06, 1909-16
Oakland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vernon/Venice
Roy "Rhino" Hitt was born on June 22, 1887 in Carleton, Nebraska.
The 5'10", 200lb. lefty threw like a charging rhino. He was inducted into
the PCL Hall of Fame for his 202 wins in 9 seasons.
Seven of those seasons he won over twenty games.
Hitt began his career in 1903 with Oakland, pitching a scant 15 innings
late in the season with a 2.93 ERA.
1904 saw Hitt in two uniforms, with Los Angeles and San Francisco for very
brief appearances in a total of 9.3 innings of work with an orbital 8.68
ERA.
San Francisco stuck with Hitt, who made the club in 1905. Their faith was
rewarded as Hitt's 25-14 record came off of 42 games and 346 innings
pitched. He served up only 69 earned runs and 218 Ks with a smoking 1.79
ERA.
1906 saw Hitt's record with the Seals rise to 31-12 in 403 innings of work
with 85 earned runs, 220 Ks and a blistering 1.90 ERA. His 31 wins would
be a career high.
Following that great 1906 season, in 1907, at age 20, Hitt was called up
to the majors. He played for Cincinnati, where he had a less than
spectacular 6-10 season with a .375 win percentage and a 3.40 ERA.
Hitt returned to the PCL in 1909 playing with Vernon. It was a tough year.
Vernon did not have the kind of clubs that San Francisco produced. Hitt
had little backing him up. He ended the year with a disappointing 15-30
record in 48 games despite a near-career high 194 Ks and a respectable
2.38 ERA.
The following year saw a better ballclub and Hitt return to his old form.
He went 26-17 with his second straight year of Ks over the century mark at
105, and an ERA dropping to a career best 1.68.
Hitt stayed with Vernon until 1912. He was traded to Venice in 1913, where
he continued to win more than twenty games. By the end of 1914, Rhino had
charged his way though five straight 20 game-winning seasons.
In 1915, Hitt was traded back to Vernon. Wear and tear slowed down the
hard-throwing hurler. A 15-11 record saw the first season where Hitt threw
less than 100 Ks in ten years. His ERA rose to 2.51.
The final season of the Rhino came in 1916, some thirteen years after his
brief debut with Oakland. He appeared in only four games before hanging it
up.
Over his career, Hitt pitched 3,117.7 innings with over 1,448 Ks, only 908
BBs and 785 earned runs and a 202-146 record.
He was inducted into the Pacific Coast League (PCL) Hall of Fame in 2004
for his achievements on the mound. Why he was unable to turn on that power
in the majors with the Reds remains on of the mysteries of a distinguished
career.

Mr. Don Pack of Manhattan served the groom as best man. Ushers were: Orville Evans and Maurice Bigger, Student Ministers of Manhattan Bible College.
