Arrived in US 7 June 1836 aboard the Union Is this David D the recipient of this letter the reference to ? Franklin County: A Brother to David D. Hougham, August 4, 1863 SUMMARY: This letter to Hougham from a family member describes Union troop movement from Philadelphia to Reading, Pennsylvania. Pottsville Schuylkill Co. August 4 1863 Dear Brother I reseived your letter yesterday about 10 minutes after reaching here. We left Phil. friday eve at 7 oclock and marched to Norristown 16 miles stoped 2 hours and fed and started again and went as far as [unclear: Trappe] and fed again there and then left and made another halt at Pottstown got there at 9 Sat eve and stayed till Sunday eve at 10. When we left for Reading where we arrived at 7 in movng here we took the cars for Pottsville the weather during the march was the hottest of the season. We left Franklin Palmer and one other fellow on the road sick every where along the road and here we had every thing we could eat. this morning a lot of ladies brought up enough for us all to have breakfast. we had a good trip, but it was an awful hard one. the trip from washington to Phil. was rather long. we ran an extra train and had to wait for orders at every station so as to miss other trains. We are up in the coal mine region and we expect to have business there is 16000 miners to oppose the draft, 800 were drilling 4 miles from here yesterday having left the mines for what purpose we dont expect to stay here long but are going 5 or 6 miles up into the mines or mountains for it is all mountains here there is a mine about 100 [unclear: rods] from here have not had time to go to it yet they are raising a Brigade and we shall probably go to the front when we go from here I did not receive the letters you spoke of only Sarahs and that I answered just before I left Phil. here and got here before I did the trip from w to P was about the same as when we went down only we got quite hungry and stoped at a station where there was 5 gal. cans filled with milk and I [unclear: just took] one of them and it happened to be filled with cream and we had a big feast and have got the can yet and keep it to put water in it is quite handy I dont know as there is any thing more at present all the boys are well and with us except [unclear: Orb] we left him in Phil Gray and [unclear: jap ] was left but came all the way by RR and got here. [illeg.] we [unclear: shall] leave this Co. probably so write to Pottsville
On a board found in the Landmark Tavern building and now on display to the left of the modern tap room: “This window cased by David Douglas Hougham on this 17th day of October 1851. Four carpenters now work on this house. Written by D.D. Hougham. Chartered by Coolidge Brothers & Company, Bouckville. Isaac Forward and his son, Hougham and Henderson – joiners. A great day – not a cloud to be seen. A frosty morning – just the same through the day.” When construction reached the cupola level, Mr. Coolidge used a six-sided design, the entire cupola being about 12 feet wide. Legend states that each side was dedicated to one of the six wives that he married during his lifetime. His fifth wife was alive during the initial construction of the building but died before the structure reached the height of the cupola. Coolidge married for a sixth time in 1851 (Mary Coburn Smith) and this may have prompted the six-sided design. You can see the entire area around Bouckville from each of the diamond-shaped cupola windows. The result of four years of labor was a building unlike any other in the U.S. It has been featured in numerous articles and books and is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Each side of the front of the building is 24 feet wide, for a total of 96 feet of road frontage. The frontage faced the Cherry Valley Turnpike, the Chenango Canal and after 1850, the Rome to Hamilton Plank Road, which ran alongside the canal. The stores on the ends of the building were rectangular in shape, while the two stores in the middle were more pie-shaped. It became the first mini-mall of its day with a different type of store eventually occupying each section. Each store entrance can be visibly seen today. The Post Office for Bouckville was housed in the Cobblestone Store for many years and the first telephone exchange for the community was also headquartered there.

6505 West Cowes Isle of Wight

His maternal grandfather was also a brewer, living in Cowes, in the Isle of Wight. A quaint paper, framed behind glass, was brought out for my inspection. It reads:

"These are to Will and Require you forthwith to swear and admit the bearer hereof, Thomas Blake, of West Cowes, Isle of Wight, into the place of Purveyor of Ale and Beer in Ordinary to her Majesty. He is to have and enjoy all the Rights, Profits and Privileges and Advantages to the said place belonging during my will and pleasure, and for so doing shall be your warrant. Dated this 10th day of March, 1848, in the 11th year of Her Majesty's reign".

The signature is indecipherable. Brewing in those days, Mr. Huffam told me, was carried out with malt and hops only. Sugar was not permitted. If a brewer was detected using sugar he was heavily fined. The customs officials, excise men in those days, had keys to the breweries and could walk in any time of the day or night.

6506 Westley Hougham, the brother of John Hougham, was born March 3, 1820, in Highland County, Ohio. He was always a moral boy, and never cut up capers or shines. He came to Funk’s Grove in November, 1831. He had no particular adventure on the way, except difficulties with the mud, which delayed the family for some time, as they were obliged to make a great many bridges. On his arrival he immediately commenced farming and shaking with the fever and ague. Sometimes he farmed for his mother and sometimes for himself. When he became a “chunk of a boy” he ran wolves and deer and turkeys, and sometimes was successful in catching them and sometimes they won the race. When t he sudden change in the weather in December, 1836, came, he was chasing turkeys about four miles from home, but made good time back, as may be supposed. He was obliged to swim Sugar Creek.
He married, September 5, 1845, Miss Ellen Smith, and by this marriage has had four children, of whom three are living. His wife died in 1854. He married, February 18, 1857, Margaret Ross, and by this marriage has had four children, of whom three are living. Two of Mr. Hougham’s children are married.

James Thomas Hougham, who lives within half a mile of his father’s house.
Mrs. America Ann Boler lives within a mile of her father’s house.

Mr. Hougham lacks half an inch of being six feet in height, when measured in his stocking feet. That was his measurement at Springfield, when he went to see if he would do for a soldier. He weighs three or four hundred pounds, he does not know precisely which. He is stout and pretty active.

6508 WHARRY, HERBERT, Captain, was born in 1857, son of Charles Wharry, Charlton Lodge, Thornton Heath, Surrey, and of Mrs Charles Wharry. He entered the Army in 1876; became Captain, ISC, in 1887; served with the First and Second Miranzai Expeditions (Despatches; Medal and clasp). He again saw active service in Waziristan, 1894—95, and was present at the action of Wano. He was mentioned in Despatches; received a clasp, and was created a Companion of the Distinguished Service Order [London Gazette, 27 August 1895]: "Herbert Wharry, Captain, Indian Staff Corps. In recognition of services during the recent operations in Waziristan". The Insignia were presented 8 December 1895. He died 23 September 1898. Wharry, Herbert (I29037)

6512 When I heard of Sarah-, daughter of-Keziah(Hougham) Hawkes ,1 was sure- -that- I had found my Grandfather's sister Keziah but after much further correspondence and research,found it was my Grandfather's cousin,same name of Keziah, born same village and same year,but about five months difference in ages.Nevertheless-I had found a staunch friend.Our correspondence began about 1925-6,but the extracts are few for the following reason.on

1934.Dec.l0."We never knew the Hougham's,only Uncle Jack,-and the Ovendens.There is only Tom Ovenden living now Annie died a year ago,and Polly has been gone several years.Tom lives at St Nicholas with his son_Tom.— My brother in law Mr Foade died 27 June 1932,on my birthday,he left my sister Annie well provided for."

Sarah's son Jack Dove took up the correspondence,and often sent me extracts from books in the Canterbury library, so the extracts will be from the letters of Jack Dove, son of Sarah and Grandson of Keziah (Hougham)Hawkes.Grandson of Keziah(Hougham) Hawks.

1941 Nov 18 " We do not get much chance to concentrate or write, we have to blackout at 4 P.M. we are having some very noisy nights now,old Jerry has just been over and unloaded some of his bombs ,the explosions shook the house terrible , but they were a long way off. We had, them three nights running.We will be glad when this war Is over.

1943 June 13.Every week we have a drive for something-this week it is gathering scrap iron,and the need is so great that we are told to even pull down the iron railings around the graves.It seems a shame to destroy our church yards that way,but after all they are not doing any good rusting away,they are not lovely,and it seems too bad to fence our dead in,we know that no fence in the world will retain their soul and their poor bodies have wasted away years ago".

1944 Oct 8."My brother has had the roof of his house blown off and all their windows blown out from a flying bomb,but fortunately none of the family were hurt."

1945."Aunty Foade passed to her long rest Sunday May 5th age 83 and was laid to rest May 9th by the side of Granny and Granty Keyes in the Stourmouth Churchyard.In that corner there is now nine of our family all
close together.

NOTE BY M.H.Pratt.-Jack and his Mother kept up a steady correspondence from 1925 and right on through the war, but there was nothing of genealogical value.The letters described the war,and told where the bombs fell which churches or villages suffered from bombs,and especially described old Canterbury and it's Cathedral. The various organizations and ohurch duties that Jack is engaged in. In 1937 I spent a week in their home and enjoyed their company very much,and they are prominent in the Parish Church work,and they showed me through the church and explained it's ancient parts,also the grave-yard-but at that time I did not know that my second grt grd father and his wife were buried there,or that he had 13 children baptised there. The reason that Sarah or Jack could not give me much information was that Keziah Hougham's father had died young and the wife had married again,so the children were raised by the Measday side of the family,and did not know their Hougham relatives.They"knew their Uncle Jack " he was the father of Harriet (Hougham) Elvery, and was their Mother Kesiah's brother,and the Ovendens were the children of their Mother's sister Mary. Added to that scanty knowledge it was not the custom for people in those villages to visit far from home, a few miles was a. long way to them,so family connections were not kept up*

187. Some Merchants of Nevis to their Correspondent in London. Wee lay before you the prosseedings of our Councill and Assembly, that you may plainly see what sinister ways and means they take to resetle the Island again, etc. All their publique meetings has cheifly tended to make acts for puting a stop to the due currancy of the Law, without any exceptions of poor or rich, that they may have time to recrute their estates, without any regard to us here, that were fellow sufferers with them. Wee have laboured under great dificulties in oposition to their passing their Act. H.E. has a great regard for the merchants' interest boath at home and here; he will not pass any of their Acts, notwithstanding he intends to send them home without the broad seale. After they made their first Act, which the Generall would not pass, Mr. Fowler went up to Antegua with a petition to the Generall; H.E. very readily granted a Commission for houlding the Courts, notwithstanding the Councill and Assembly put a stop to [that] proseeding, and sent Mr. Bevon, Mr. Goar, Sp., and James Symonds with an Address to the Generall [for] stoping the law. This put a demur till the Generall came down [to] St. Christophers, and then wee proferd another petition, which went down by Dr. Semple; the Generall on sight of the petition promised to come up himselfe and compose matters between planters and merchants, which in two days he did. At his coming up, the Councill and Assembly mett, the Generall entered some Minnuts in the Councill Book with his own hand, that a bill should be prepared by a Commity of two of the Councill and four of the Assembly, and the [? same] number of merchants. The bill was to oblige planters to ajust with and give bond for what was justly due those that were not able to make prompt payment, a time should be allowed them, and those that were able and not willing, [the] Law should proseed against them, and that all debits contracted since our misfortune shou'd be payd. The Generall had a conference of the Councill and Assembly and merchants in the Councill Chamber, and made the above proposals, which the Councill and Speaker agreed to, but as soon as the Generall was gone, they prepared this bill. We heard Coll. Abbott and Thomas Bridgwatter and Mr. Horn was goeing down with the bill to gett the broad seale to itt; Mr. Huffam, Mr. Washington, and Dr. Semple went downe before, and acquainted the Generall with their bill and left some proposals with him, which he aproved of, and when Col. Abbot shoud the bill, the Generall altogither refused to pass any such bill, and dd. to Coll. Abbot the proposalls left with him, and signed the same, and told him he would pass no other Act, but what was agreeable to the proposalls. The publication [? is] up for holding the Courts, but it's so late in the year the Generall thinks itt conveniant to pass it over till the Spring, and then intends the Courts shall be open. In the [? meantime the] planters are using all their interest both here and in England to gett an Act past [? for put]ting a stop to the Law for some time, till they can think of some more effectuall means either to make former debts altogether voyd, or downright to defraud their creditors by private conveyances of their estates to their relations, or one to another, and they to make itt over to their children again; and all this is acted through a pretence of poverty; ther is some of them will not stand to say they are in a better condition then, before the misfortune. Wee hope you will use your uttmost endeavours that the Law may have its due currancy, and that the Courts may be open in the Spring, that we may be able to oblige them to ajust accompts, etc. Signed, Samuel Browne, Chas.

"This is inserted here to prove by wills an error of the reliable historian Hasted, not critizing but to correct a much repeated printer error now 400 years in circulation and which i have not found corrected in print since. By mistakes ( and we all make them) we learn. Thomas was overseer of his brother Stephens will 1556 "of Ash". Then the historians words "of Thomas no more is known". The will of their father shows the vast lands his sons inherited, also locations. We find Thomas at Preston 3 miles from Ash - How?- Through the will of the son Michael's wife mother 1594 April 2 - This shows how inlaws sometimes give us useful references.

One misplaced link ( error) leads to more as also does carelessly kept records and to blindly copy from others without studying the entries is NOT always facts. This record shows how Michael's wife and first 4 children were gived to to his cousin Michael as a 1st wife and no more ever said about them- copied and printed that way yet in 1958. The age of the Michael to whom Elizabeth Joade was given as 1st wife would be only 8 at time of marriage - by his will 1596 is shown he had one wife only and she was Janet Brooke and his one and only childwas in infant son b 1596

The will of Agnes Joade, widow follows - F 179/ 2 April 1594 Probate of Ash next Sandwich - " To be buried in Stourmouth Church near her late husband Andrew Joade" She mentions her sons Richard William Andrew Nicholas daughters Joan and Eve then the spouses and children of each then says " Elizabeth my daughter now wife of Michaell Huffam and Thomas Elizabeth Henry and Richard children of my son in law Michaell Huffam" In all she names 38 descendants. This stsement alone is not proof it does not identify which Michael Hougham but it points to Stourmouth where on the registers we find the son Richard baptized and 5 others after him ( The MIchael who married Janet Brooke was dead by now and left a son by Janet his 1st and only wife) see the wills of Stephen and Thomas with regs of Ash and Birchington, the home of the Joades coupled with the wills of Michael "of Ash" 1596 and Michael of Stourmouthwill 1500-1601 and of his widow Elizabeth ( now) Hougham. In 1617 all in the record ( Ry - the genealogical record of teh Hougham family) Notice in particular Michaels will 1599" to my daughter Elizabeth the money given her by her grandmotherJoade and other Joade relatives" and Michaels will is signed by Peter and Andrew Joade jnr"
