Ancestors of Rebecca Lynne Miller

      106. Henry Huntsworth
Child of Henry Huntsworth is:
  53 i.   Sarah Elizabeth Huntsworth, born 1817 in Fairfied Co., Ohio; died May 2, 1895 in Lima twp, Licking Co., OH; married Joshua Wickliff Mar 17, 1842.

      112. Cary Mead, Sr, born 1764 in RUTLAND, VERMONT; died 1831 in APPLETON, GRANVILLE, OH. He was the son of 224. Zebulon Mead and 225. Mercy Cary. He married 113. Judith Sampson.

      113. Judith Sampson, born 1768; died in APPLETON, OH.

Notes for Cary Mead, Sr:
In August, 1832, Titus Knox and Carey Mead laid out the village of Appleton, and named it in honor of Appleton Downer, a lawyer of Zanesville, who had been a large land owner in the township. It is handsomely situated in a beautiful country, near the southern borders of the township, but it never attained to the proportions of a town of one hundred inhabitants, and has been on the decline in later years.

Carey Meade built the first house in Appleton, and there is something of a romantic history connected with it. Mr. Meade had a pretty daughter who married a man named Delong, from the east, and Mr. Meade erected this house for a storeroom, with the expectation that his son-in-law would bring on a stock of goods and become the first merchant of the future city. For reasons very well understood this expectation was not realized, and thus the storeroom-a frame structure, one and a half stories in height-stood empty for a time, and was the only building on the town plat when Mr. Gideon Long and family came to the place, April 3, 1833. Mr. Long moved into this empty store room and occupied it some years. While he was yet living in it Mr. David Messenger, yet living, a resident of Utica, and now a very aged man, came to Appleton, or the site of it, Tented the front part of this building, and opened the first store in the place. Mr. Long, in order to encourage enterprise and assist in building up the town squeezed his family into the single back room of this storehouse. He had, since his advent in the place, been using the upper room of this building for a cabinet shop. A pair of stairs went up on the outside of the building, and here he made tables, coffins, and other necessaries of life and death; and for himself a precarious living. Mr. Messenger must have expected to transact a large business, as he brought on a large stock of goods, for those days, and two clerks. Had the wolves and bears been his customers he would, no doubt, have done a large business, but as the purchasing settlers were few and far between, the two clerks seemed superfluous.

These two clerks took boarding and lodging in the family of Mr. Long in that single back room of the store building. One of these clerks was Mr. Franklin Bryant, who, after clerking some tine for Mr. Messenger, bought the store himself and conducted it several years. He built the second frame house in town, which is yet standing, and is occupied as a dwelling by Dr. Austin. Not being able to fill up that little back room entirely, with his family and two clerks, Mr. Long took in another entire family-Mr. William Van Fossen, wife and one child. Mr. Van Fossen had made up his mind to settle here, and to accommodate him while his cabin was in course of construction Mr. Long admitted' the family as boarders.

The other young gentleman clerk, who was a boarder in this large family with limited quarters, was usually called "Billy," and as he had very little clerking to do, spent most of the time in the woods hunting. Mrs. Long says "he was a good boy-a jolly, whole-souled fellow as ever lived." His last name was Rosecranz, and he afterward became Major General William S. Rosecranz, the hero of Stone River, and the gallant but unfortunate . commander of the Union forces at the great and bloody battle of Chickamauga. "Billy" Rosecranz remained here as a clerk six months, and many times declared his intention of becoming a soldier, and was sent to West Point soon after leaving this place. His father was at that time a resident of Homer, in the adjoining township, and a merchant and farmer.

REVEREND LEWIS RICHARDS WAS ELECTED PASTOR OF THE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF Baltimore in 1784 and remained in that capacity until his retirement in 1818. He recorded in a small brown ledger all the marriages at which he officiated during those years. The record book evidently remained in the possession of the church after his death, and in 1835 Reverend Stephen P. Hill, upon becoming pastor of the church, started to record the marriages which he performed in the same ledger. In 1850 Reverend Hill removed to Washington, D. C., taking the record book with him and continuing to enter records until 1869.

After a lapse of almost a century. Reverend Richards' marriage record book has been returned to Baltimore and now rests among the manuscript collections of the Maryland Historical Society (MS 690). The following marriages represent only a small portion of these records. It is hoped that some interested person will volunteer to transcribe the balance so that they may be more readily available to researchers.
