Dedication:

This book is dedicated to all those who did research before me who made this work easier (or, even possible). For without them, I would have had before me, that which would appear to be, a completely insurmountable task. Some notable authors in our family's history, had works that helped immensely. Late in the 19th Century, Henry Reed Stiles wrote (The Stiles Family in America), and in the 18th Century, Ezra Stiles wrote (The History of Ancient Windsor Connecticut).

I would also like to, dedicate this work to my late father, Burt Jefferson Stiles, who instilled in me a thirst for history, especially family history. All my early life, my father talked about the fact that our family originally came from England, and that we had a coat-of-arms. He also used to tell us about how his grandparents came from Vermont in the middle of the 19th Century, settling first in Wisconsin, and then in Pleasant Valley, MN. He told of hearing his grandmother, Betsey Hutchinson Stiles, relating stories of life in Vermont, such as making soap in a large iron kettle. This kettle is still in the family. All of these tales led me to "check them out", and find out more about this family, to which, I became a member.

LAYOUT OF
THIS BOOK

I have attempted to lay this book out in a user-friendly fashion. Whether or not I have accomplished this, is up to the reader/user to determine. I am only able to layout this work using whatever parameters are afforded me within the confines and restrictions imposed by the Family Tree Maker software program. There are several features that certainly helped in determining this layout, and some aspects of this program made some things more than a little difficult.

If the reader wishes to find information on a particular individual, please consult the Index, and, of course, the Table of Contents.

The Outline Descendant Trees (ODT) for the various individuals were available only for a certain number of descendants, so the user will have to possibly consult different ODT's in order to gain a complete line of descendants, depending on how many are in this book. The ODT contains, in more or less typical 'family tree' form, several generations starting from the individual named at the top. This ODT shows birth and death year, spouse (a + sign designates the spouse, but check to see if there may be multiple spouses), and children.

The Register Report, shows in narrative form, information on the individual named at the top, along with several of their descendants, along with notes on those individuals. It shows birth and death dates and places, along w ith marriage dates and places. (If the information is missing, it may be assumed that it is because the information wasn't available at this time.) Also, note that in this Register Report, preceding generations are noted after the individuals name (in italics), so it can be determined how this individual fits into this family.

The Timeline feature is a mechanism that sort of shows how some of our ancestors fit into the big scheme of world history. Please do not be offended if you or your favorite ancestor does not show up in this area. If the accurate or approximate dates that this person lived were not entered into this work, that person is not fitted into the Timeline.

The majority of the Coats of Arms, as listed in this book, were obtained from the internet, and are not proved to be authentic, as there are various spelling and renditions of some family names. However, the Stiles and Cockrill are probably very accurate, as they have been verified by other sources. I have included the Coats of Arms of the various families, if discovered. If they are not included, it may be because the correct one was not verified as the correct one with that particular family.

OUTLINE DESCENDANT TREES

The Outline Descendant Tree pages are designed to give a kind of overall view of the family for up to 10 generations. It sometimes is a little difficult to follow, but each generation is numbered and all the siblings and their spouses are identified by the same number. On many occasions, it is necessary to use more than one Outline Descendant Tree to get from the earliest known ancestor to the latest known descendant. As you become familiar with this system, it does become easier to follow.

REGISTER REPORTS

The Register Report pages are fairly easy to follow. These pages show up to 4 generations, and data about each individual, such as, ancestors, birth, death, marriage, family, etc. All the entered notes concerning each individual is also shown in these pages, and should be rather interesting and informative. The reader will note, that many individuals may show up on several pages, as they can be found as decendants of many people, such as 4 different grandparents, etc.

FAMILY

THE STILES FAMILY (OUR BRANCH)

Once the intrigue of Family Genealogy overtakes you, there is no stopping it. For the last 40 plus years, I have not lost my enthusiasm for this endeavor. There have been some slow times, some dead ends, some tangential trails, but it has always been fun. In this book, I am going to attempt to tell the story of my part of the Stiles family, as it grew from a small group in Millbrook, in Bedfordshire England, to a very large entity in America, especially the part of the Stiles family, from which I came, the Minnesota branch. I think this book can best be described as a compilation, as I am simply gathering facts and information from other sources

(i.e. libraries, books, internet, family, etc.).

My interest in the Stiles Family history goes back to early childhood, with stores from my father. He told how his father, Winfield Scott Stiles, moved with his family (which consisted of himself, and 3 brothers, and his parents) from Gilmanton, WI, where they originally settled, to Pleasant Valley, MN, by oxcart. And how young Winfield, who was all of 10 years old, and the second oldest child, walked the distance alongside the oxcart. My father also told how his grandfather, William Lyman Stiles, emigrated from Vermont to Wisconsin, to Minnesota, in the early days (by 1865). This was all very intriguing, and fermented into a full-blown desire to find out more about this strange family from which I emerged.

The story of the Stiles Family is rife with stories, ancient and relatively modern. When I really got the urge to dig up information on my family, I had no idea how to go about such an endeavor. In 1966, while working in St. Paul, MN, at the Univac Plant there, I found that there was a book, written by a former family historian, Henry Reed Stiles, called The Stiles Family in America. There was a copy of this book at the Minnesota State Historical Society Bldg., in St. Paul, MN. I anxiously checked it out wondering what it may contain. The book was quite thick, rather old, and beaten up, and when I opened it, all I saw was a plethora of names of Stiles'. I had no idea how to proceed with this, so my next idea, was to look in the index for my grandfather's name (Winfield Scott Stiles). Bingo! His name was listed. I knew my great-grandfather's name was William Lyman Stiles, so I knew this was the right Winfield Scott Stiles. From this meager start, I was able to trace the family back to the beginning of their existence in America, where John Stiles, and his family were some of the original founders of Windsor, Connecticut, settling there in 1634.

(Though there are 4 generations of Stiles' listed in this work before Thomas, the carpenter, in Millbrook, there is very little known, at this time, of those individuals (Edmo(u)nd Styles, Humphrey Styles, Humphrey Styles, and John Styles). They are not neglected in this work, but I am awaiting more research and information.)

The little hamlet of Millbrook, in Bedfordshire, in England, is the origination of the odyssey concerning our branch of the elusive Stiles' family. Millbrook, a small town just north of London, which has been described as the most beautiful in England, with it's small church, and the nearby valley, reputed to be the Valley of the Shadow of Death, in John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, is where our immigrant ancestor, John Styles was born. He was christened in Millbrook church on Christmas Day, in 1595. The church, sits prominently on the highest hill in the village, as it has since its construction in the 15th Century . My wife, Barbara, and I, were privileged to visit this church on July 14th of 2007, and it looks pretty much as it must have then, quiet, picturesque, and unassuming (through the centuries however, some additions have been made). John was born to Thomas and his wife Marie (Mary), along with 4 brothers and 3 sisters. As far as is known about the family, the children grew up in Millbrook, and eventually moved on to their chosen careers, except for the brother named Thomas. Thomas, the father, and Marie, continued to live in Millbrook, and are buried in the churchyard there, both having died there in 1614 (Thomas on March 7th, and Marie, on March 20th). Thomas, the elder, and father of the Millbrook Family, was a carpenter, by trade. Thomas, the son, continued living in Millbrook, also, following his father's trade as a carpenter.

(Below, I am inserting an excerpt describing the little hamlet of Millbrook, Bedfordshire, England, and some of it's history:

"MILLBROOK

Melebroc (xi cent.).

Millbrook, on account of its situation, lying as it does on a range of hills which intersect the parish, whose slopes are covered with woodlands, has been described as one of the most beautiful villages in England. It stands about 360 ft. above ordnance datum, and at its southern end, near Warren Farm, a magnificent view can be obtained of the surrounding country. The land slopes away to the north, where the vale of Bedford begins and falls to 200 ft.

The parish comprises an area of 1,783 acres, of which 373 are arable lands, 595 are in permanent grass, whilst woods and plantations cover 225 acres. (fn. 1 ) The soil is chiefly of a light sandy nature, though on the north side of the village it changes in places to a strong clay, which is worked in pits. The whole of the subsoil is sand.

The principal crops grown are wheat, barley and oats.

Both the Midland and North Western railways run through the parish, the nearest station being Ampthill, 1 mile distant, on the former railway; Millbrook station, 1½ miles away, on the North Western line, is in Marston Moretaine parish.

Nearly three-quarters of a mile to the north of the village, upon the brook from which it takes its name, a water-mill formerly stood. The mill was demolished in the lifetime of the last owner, who died about the year 1840. Indentations in the ground give distinct evidence of the site of this mill and of an adjoining farm, which has also disappeared. An avenue of elm trees still marks the position of the entrance drive. Local tradition also records the existence of a windmill upon the top of one of the low hills to the northward.

The position of the church is very peculiar: it stands alone on an eminence said to be the original site of the cell of St. Albans, founded by Nigel de Wast, (fn. 2 ) which was afterwards moved to Moddry and amalgamated with Beaulieu Priory. Below the church lies a tree-clad valley, which tradition assigns as the spot pictured by Bunyan for his Valley of the Shadow of Death. (fn. 3) From the top of the church tower an extensive view can on a clear day be obtained across the vale of Bedford.

On three pillars placed against the western wall of the church are busts of Lord Holland, his wife and their daughter, who all three lie buried here. On the death of John Earl of Upper Ossory, which occurred in 1818, Lord Holland, who was his nephew, succeeded to the estate of Ampthill, which is situated in the next parish. Lord Holland was son of Stephen Fox, the second lord, by his wife Mary daughter of John first Earl of Upper Ossory, who died in 1751; consequently he was nephew of the great Whig statesman, Charles James Fox, from whom he imbibed those political principles which he was not ashamed to advocate both in and out of Parliament, for Lord Holland was ever the true friend of liberty and peace. (fn. 4)

Another celebrated person who lies buried at Millbrook is Allen, the man of letters, who lived with Lord and Lady Holland. He was one of that illustrious group of literary men who comprised what was then known as the 'Holland House set,' and which included Lord Byron, Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Samuel Rogers and Lord Macaulay.

Formerly the women of the parish used to be employed in lace-making, but now this village industry has died out. (fn. 5)

Millbrook gave a title to Sir John Cornwall, K.G., who owned the manor in the 15th century, and in 1442 (fn. 6) was created Baron Millbrook. His arms, with the insignia of the Order of the Garter, still remain in one of the windows in the north wall of the church.

Amongst place-names are the following:'Great Johnstones alias Shorte Wood, at Kembrach,' 'Lyemede a close in Falway,' Herdon Field, Courtfield, Fordeperor, all found in the 17th century. (fn. 7)

The parish was inclosed by a Private Act of Parliament in 1795. (fn. 8)

MANORS

MILLBROOK MANOR was held as part of the barony of Cainhoe (q.v.) (fn. 9) until it was attached to the honour of Ampthill by Henry VIII in 1542. (fn. 10)

The earliest mention of the manor is to be found in the Domesday Survey, where it is stated that Nigel de Wast held it of Nigel de Albini; it was assessed at 5 hides, worth £3. (fn. 11) The manor follows the same descent as that of Ampthill (q.v.). On the death of Robert de Albini, circa 1233, this manor became divided, part passing to Azeline sister of Robert de Albini and wife of Ralph de St. Amand and part to Isabel wife of William de Hocton. (fn. 12)

Dealing first with Millbrook Manor, which passed to Azeline, it is found that her son Almeric, who held in chief of the king by the service of one knight's fee, (fn. 13) had a gallows, a market and assize of bread and ale in this parish in 1275. Almaric de St. Amand was succeeded by his brother John in 1311, (fn. 14) who, besides enjoying the privileges already mentioned, had the tolls of a fair which was held on St. Mary Magdalene's Day, 22 July. (fn. 15) His son Almaric, then aged sixteen years, succeeded him in 1330, and in 1343 he obtained licence from the king to increase his property in this parish by the exchange of half of the manor of Warden with the Abbot of Warden for the abbot's property in Millbrook. (fn. 16) In 1377 a further exchange was made between Almaric de St. Amand, grandson of the earlier Almaric, and Warden. This time the abbot exchanged land at Millbrook for land in Lower Winchendon in Buckinghamshire. (fn. 17)Almaric de St. Amand died in 1381, (fn. 18) being succeeded by his son Almaric, during whose tenure of the manor a grant was made to Sir Robert de Shottesbroke, probably as feoffee in trust. (fn. 19) With the death of this Almaric in 1403 the family of St. Amand came to an end in the male line, and Millbrook Manor passed to Gerard de Braybrook, whose father Gerard had married Eleanor daughter of Lord St. Amand. (fn. 20) As Gerard de Braybrook was only ten years old at the time of his grandfather's death, the estate was placed in the hands of trustees, one of whom was Henry (Chicheley) Archbishop of Canterbury. (fn. 21) From Gerard de Braybrook the manor passed to his daughter Elizabeth, who married Sir Walter Beauchamp, by whom she had a son William, who in conjunction with his mother alienated the manor to Sir John Cornwall (fn. 22) some time previous to 1428, in which year he had succeeded the heirs of St. Amand in Millbrook. (fn. 23) This distinguished soldier was great-grandson of Sir Geoffrey de Cornewall by his wife the heiress of the Mortimers, Barons of Burford, (fn. 24) and was created successively Baron Fanhope in 1433 (fn. 25) and Lord Millbrook in 1442. (fn. 26) He had already acquired that property in Millbrook which represented Isabel Albini's share of her brother's estate, so that now the two portions once more became united under one lord. Its history here follows the same descent as that of Ampthill (q.v.) until its acquisition by the Crown circa 1524, and was attached to the honour of Ampthill on its creation in 1542. (fn. 27) Millbrook Manor formed part of the dower of Henrietta Maria, queen of Charles I, (fn. 28) and an extent of it exists taken in 1649. There was then no manor-house, and the court was held at Ampthill. The rents of assize, of free and copyhold land and royalties, amounted to £25 11s. 4d.; Millbrook Warren, stocked with game and conies, contained 450 acres, and was sublet by the Crown lessees at a rent of £30; the tenants and freeholders within the manor claimed to have common upon the said warren. A heriot of the best beast was paid by every tenant to the lord of the manor. (fn. 29)

Charles II in 1677 granted a lease of the manor for ninety-nine years to Robert Bruce Earl of Ailesbury, (fn. 30) who in the lifetime of his father Thomas Lord Bruce had been appointed Lord-Lieutenant of Bedfordshire. He represented the county in both the Long Parliament and the Convention Parliament, and after the Restoration held various appointments in the king's household. (fn. 31). He died in 1685.

A lease of the honour of Ampthill in which Millbrook was included was granted on 12 January 1771 to John fourth Duke of Bedford, but he died three days later, and it was not until 11 February 1773 that the lease was renewed to his widow Gertrude Duchess of Bedford in trust. (fn. 32) Lysons (ed. 1806) says that in his time the lease was vested in the Earl of Upper Ossory, in consequence of an exchange with the Duke of Bedford. (fn. 33) This manor henceforward follows the same descent as that of Ampthill (q.v.), passing back to the Dukes of Bedford in 1842 by purchase from Lord Holland's devisees. (fn. 34)

The other moiety of Millbrook Manor passed, on the death of Robert de Albini, to his sister Isabel, and follows the same descent as that portion of Clophill and Cainhoe Manor (q.v.) which she then acquired until 1364. (fn. 35) Between this date and 1428 it was acquired by Sir John Cornwall, who also owned the other moiety of the manor with which its history is henceforward identical. (fn. 36)

In 1346 Peter de St. Croix held a fourth part of this manor of the king by the service of half a knight's fee and finding an armed man for the army in Scotland for forty days, at the cost of the tenant, when required by the king. (fn. 37) During the time Peter de St. Croix held the manor this part of the county was visited by the Black Death, of which he was probably a victim, for his inquisition post mortem is taken in 1349, and states that all the bondmen and cottars were dead of the pestilence and his son and heir Robert died a few months later. (fn. 38)

The little priory of Beaulieu (de Bello Loco) at Moddry (fn. 39) owned land at Millbrook, where originally a small cell had been founded by Nigel de Wast as a cell of St. Albanstowards the close of the 11th century, (fn. 40) but when Beaulieu was founded, circa 1140, as a cell of St. Albans (fn. 41) the two cells (Beaulieu and Millbrook) were amalgamated and the monks of Millbrook were transferred to Beaulieu (fn. 42) ; but this priory was never an important one, and was eventually suppressed in 1428 (fn. 43) onn account of its poverty, when the mother-house leased it to secular priests and assigned its property in Millbrook and elsewhere to Sir John Cornwall 'for

his life and that of his heirs at a quit rent of £10.' (fn. 44)

During the time of its existence the prior had a grant of free warren, in 1293, in all his demesne lands at Millbrook (fn. 45) ; but his estate there could not have been a large one, as at the commencement of the 14th century he was returned as holding the sixth part of one-half fee, and this included not only the Millbrook property, but also that at Clophill. (fn. 46)

In 1287 the Knights Templars owned MILLBROOK MANOR, in which they claimed view of frankpledge twice yearly by charter of Henry III. It was at this date assessed at 3 carucates. (fn. 47) On the suppression of the Templars by Pope Clement V this property, like most of the estates of the Templars, passed to the Knights Hospitallers. (fn. 48) In 1337 it was said to comprise 2 carucates of land, 20 acres of meadow and 10 acres of woodland. (fn. 49) At the Dissolution it became the property of the Crown, who already owned land in Millbrook, and was granted almost immediately to Sir Richard Longe, who acquired at the same time most of the Hospitallers' lands, including Clifton Manor, in this county. (fn. 50) Like that manor, his lands in Millbrook are included in his marriage settlement on Margaret Kitson in 1541. (fn. 51) During his tenure also John Clark and others were accused by him of entering into and depasturing his lands called Nethertemple (fn. 52) ; but no further mention has been found of this property.

The Cistercian abbey of Warden owned property in this parish, the earliest mention of which is in a confirmation by Edward I of a charter of Richard I, who granted a grange at Millbrook in perpetual alms to the abbey of Warden. (fn. 53) This property the abbey, as before-mentioned, exchanged with Almaric de St. Amand. (fn. 54) During the time the abbey owned land at Millbrook the abbot had the grant of a free warren on his property there. (fn. 55)

CHURCH

The church of ST. MICHAEL consists of a chancel 28 ft. by 16 ft. 4 in., a nave 39 ft. 4 in. by 17 ft. 4 in., north and south aisles 7 ft. 8 in. wide, a south porch, and a west tower 13 ft. square.

A blocked 13th-century lancet in the south wall of the south aisle is the oldest feature visible, the south arcade being circa 1340; it may have been moved out from the wall of an aisleless nave. The north aisle was added in the 15th century, and the tower is of the same time; the chancel has been entirely rebuilt during the last century, and the whole church has undergone much restoration.

The chancel has a 15th-century three-light east window, and in the north wall is a single cinquefoiled light under a 15th-century square head; there is a modern window of the same kind in the south wall and a modern priest's doorway.

The north arcade of the nave is of three bays, having octagonal shafts with moulded capitals and bases, and to the east of it is a pointed opening leading into the aisle; the south arcade is of a similar description, but the details show its date to be circa 1340. Above each arcade is a range of three modern clearstory windows, each of two cinquefoiled lights. The tower arch is in three orders, with capitals like those of the north arcade. The nave roof is entirely modern.

The north aisle has an east window of two cinquefoiled lights under a square head, and in the north wall are two 15th-century three-light windows, much restored; there is a blocked north doorway of the same date. In the north-east angle of the aisle is a 15th-century canopied niche, and there is a cinquefoiled piscina, the basin of which has disappeared.

The south aisle has a restored 15th-century east window of two cinquefoiled lights under a square head, and the south doorway is of the same period. A little to the east of it is a narrow blocked 13th-century window, and next to it a modern three-light window. The south porch is modern, and to the west of it is a three-light window, a few stones of its tracery being of 15th-century date.

The tower is built of rubble in three stages, with an embattled parapet, high plinth and buttresses to the two lower stages. There is a modern west window of three cinquefoiled lights, and the belfry windows are also modern of two cinquefoiled lights.

Millbrook Church from the South-east.

There is a chest in the tower dated 1707, and much of the pewing seems to be of about the same date. On the north wall of the chancel is a panel between two pilasters ornamented with arabesque work, and on it is an inscription to William Huett and his wife Mary, who died in 1602. In the north aisle is an inscription painted on canvas to George Lawson, rector, who died in 1684; he had been 'imployed by the Rt Honble the Earl of Ailisbury in severall messages in order to the King's restauration.' There are two bells, the treble from the Wokingham foundry, circa 1450, inscribed 'Sancta Maria ora pro nobis,' and the tenor by Richard Chandler, 1677. The plate is modern, and consists of a silver chalice, paten and flagon. The registers previous to 1812 are in eight books: (1) all entries 1558 to 1650; (2) 1653 to 1689;

(3) 1689 to 1704; (4) 1705 to 1739; (5) baptisms and burials 1740 to 1812; (6) marriages 1740 to 1754; (7) marriages 1756 to 1800; and (8) marriages 1801 to 1812. The registers for 1651 and 1652 are on the cover of the first book and are illegible.

ADVOWSON

The earliest mention of the church at Millbrook is in the foundation charter of the priory of Beaulieu, to whom was granted the right of presentation to the living, (fn. 56) and with whom it remained till the suppression of the priory in 1435. (fn. 57) By 1443 it had passed to Sir John Cornwall, (fn. 58) and henceforward follows the same descent as the manor (q.v.). In 1291 Millbrook Church was assessed at £4 6s. 8d., (fn. 59) and at the Dissolution the rectory was worth £9 17s. 2d. (fn. 60)

CHARITIES

The share of this parish is represented by £188 8s. 6d. consols, with the official trustees, producing £4 14s. a year, which is applied in apprenticing.

Poor's Cottages.

Under the Inclosure Act, 1796, a cottage and half an acre adjoining were allotted to the churchwarden and overseer for the use and benefit of the poor in exchange with Lord Upper Ossory for a cottage and garden settled upon the like trusts by deed, 15 April 1701. The cottages erected thereon were occupied by the poor rent free. In 1842 John Allen by deed granted two fee-farm rents of £4 and £2, charged upon certain lands then the estate of Lord Holland, upon trust for providing shoes, petticoats and other articles of dress to ten poor girls under the age of ten years, the distribution to be made in church before the tomb of the Hon. Georgina Fox, the charity to be called Georgina Fox's Charity. The fee-farm rents have been redeemed, and the trust fund now consists of £200 6s. consols, transferred to the official trustees in 1868.

The fuel allotment consists of 8 acres known as The Moors, allotted to the poor on the inclosure in 1803 in compensation for any ancient usage in cutting peat or turf. The land is let at an annual rent of £13, which is applied in the distribution of coal.

(The above information was obtained in a search on the internet concerning some historical aspects of Millbrook, and, as in all internet information, must be accepted or rejected with that in mind. However, I believe this information to be true.)

(In my incessant quest for more information on the Stiles Family, and the little church in Millbrook, I received the following email message from a Mrs. Elisabeth Roberts, a member of St. Michael's Church, in Millbrook (dated, August 7, 2007). She has access to the Parish archives. Here is a copy of part of that email:

[I thought you might be interested in this extract from the church guide of 1947 written by Miss Mary George:

"The Stylles. During the years the Rev. H.P. Pollard was Rector of Millbrook, a visit was paid to the village by Nr N.R. Stiles and his wife with a friend. They came to look up the home of their ancestors who had apparently left Millbrook for America in the ship Christian (sister ship of The Mayflower) with the puritans who founded the Plymouth colony of Puritons in Massachusetts, USA, about 1625.

In the Registers are various references to the family of Stylles (Stiles according to the American spelling of the name). Thomas Stylles is described as a carpenter in 1614. The family are mentioned from 1581 to 1614 and they include Richard, Mary, John,Henry, Thomas,Christopher,Francis, Joan, Elizabeth and Thomas and his wife Mary, who were intered in 1614. Mr NR Stiles brought with him a large volume which had been written about this family in America, and was able to point out which of the Stylles in the Millbrook Register sailed in the Christian with the Puritans, and became famous "

The Rev Pollard was Rector of Millbrook 1918-1930.]

I am convinced that the above mentioned Mr. N.R. Stiles, is really a Mr. Henry Reed Stiles, and should have read, Mr. H.R. Stiles. As, in his book, "The Stiles Family in America", he mentioned such a trip to the church in Millbrook. I would like to suggest the following further correction: I believe Miss George to be referringto the trip made to Dorchester, later named Windsor, Connecticut, which took place in 1634-35, not 1625.)

Our branch of The Stiles family was first noted historically, when they seemingly were caught up with a desire to investigate emigration to the New World. We find Francis, who was the 4th oldest brother, rallying the family together to emmigrate. Francis, at this time was found to be following his father's vocation, and was a carpenter in London, and was described as a Freeman of London. This privilege meant that he was not the property of a feudal Lord, and had the right to earn money and to own property. This was a much sought after acknowledgement in his skill as a carpenter, and indeed this was a high honor. It is suggested also, that by February, 1634/35, both Henry and John, the older brothers of Francis,were also following in the same occupation as their father, and were also master carpenters and freemen of London. As Francis Stiles, and apparently his brothers, also, had become increasingly disillusioned with their inability to pursue their religious worship, as they wished, they had decided to continue with thier pursuit of possible emigration. (It is not known for sure if their reason for independence was that they wanted to separate from the teaching of the Anglican Church, or if was a desire to be free from the tight reign of being constantly subject to a sovereign King). By this time, in the mid 1630's, Francis had gained the attention and comradeship of Sir Richard Saltonstall. Sir Richard Saltonstall was given a charter from Charles I to the land now known as Connecticut, and was organizing parties of emigrants to start colonies in this new land. Francis, then contacted his brothers with the prospect of emigrating, and on February 15, 1634, with his plans to emigrate, Francis employed his older brother, Henry, to write to the younger brother, Thomas, who was still in Millbrook, to secure the transcript of the family records from St. Michael's Church in their hometown of Millbrook. It is not known if getting one's birth records were a requirement, or if it was to maintain a connection to their birthplace that they secured the records, but whatever the reason, they now had them, and all that was left to do was to swear allegiance to the crown, and get on board for the trip to the New World, and a new life. So, under the authority, of Sir Richard Saltonstall, and with Mr. Francis Stiles, in charge, the Stiles Party was ready to go to the new world. On March 16, 1634, they set sail for America on the ship, "Christian de Lo" (The Christian of London) (Joseph White, master), arriving at Boston Harbor, on June 20, 1634/35. (In 1762, a noted historian, and President of Yale College, Mr. Ezra Stiles, found in the possession of a Mr. Jonathan Stiles, of Windsor, CT., a copy of the transcript of the parish records from the church in Millbrook, recorded from 1564 to 1650, and transcribed by a Rev. Geo. Carter Cardale, of Millbrook, as follows:

1581, Rychard Stylles, sonne of Rychard Stylles, was baptized 20th of June.

1591, Maria Stylles, daughter of Thos. Stylles, was baptized 7th March.

1595, John Stylles, sonne of Thos. Stylles, was Christianed the 25th day of December.

1600, Chrystopher Stylles, the sonne of Thos. Stylles, was baptized the 28th day of March.

1602, Francis Stylles, sonne of Thos. Stylles, was baptized 1st day of August

1604, Joane Stylles, daughter of Thos. Stylles, and Maria his Wyfe, was baptized the the day of Januarie.

1605, Joane Stylles, wife of Thos. S. was buried 22d of Januarie

1607, Elyzabeth Stylles, dau. of Thos. and Maria his Wyfe, was baptized 28th of December.

1612, Thomas Stylles, sonne of Thos. Stylles, was baptized the 7th of February.

1614, Wyddow Stylles, was buried ye 20th of March.)

(Note: not all of the above records were necessarily those of the immigrants, but were all the records obtained concerning Stiles' from the Millbrook Church). With these necessary credentials in hand, Francis and his family members were now ready to depart for the New World. They embarked on the ship, The Christian, a sister ship to the Mayflower, on March 16, 1634, for Connecticut, and a new life, going down in history as members of the founders of Windsor, CT. They arrived later that year, establishing the Stiles Family in America. There is a family tradition that stated that Rachel, the wife of Thomas, was the first person that stepped ashore in what is now Connecticut.

John Stiles, the second son of Thomas and Marie Stiles came to Windsor, CT, when he was 40 years of age, and his wife, Rachel, was 28. They had 4 children; Henry, born in England, John (From whom I am descended), born in England, Isaac, born in Windsor, CT., and Sarah, born in Windsor, CT. There is a family tradition (or legend, or story) that when it came time to board the ship for America, John and Marie's son, John, even though was old enough to wean, that his mother suckled him during the voyage, because of a ship's rule: "that a woman and her child paid only a single passage, but double if [the child were] weaned". (John was then approximately 2 years of age).

John Stiles eventually met and married Dorcas, the daughter of Henry Burt of Springfield, MA. (Apparently, this John was now living in Springfield, MA. John and Dorcas, may have moved back to Windsor, after the first child was born.) (As an aside, there is a family tradition, "that the mother of Dorcas Burt, before she came over , was laid out for dead in England, put into the coffin; but - at her funeral, signs of life appeared, and she recovered, came to New England, settled at Springfield, MA, and here in America had nineteen children, (ten of whom, at least, lived to have families) one of which was this Dorcas"). John and Dorcas went on to have 5 children; Sarah, born in Springfield, MA, John, born at Windsor, CT, Ephraim (from whom I am descended), and Thomas (it is not known for sure where the last 2 were born).

Ephraim Stiles married Abigail Neal, of Westfield, MA, where he settled, and afterwards moved to Springfield, MA. They went on the have 5 children; Rachel, born in Westfield, MA, Isaac, born in Westfield, MA, Ephraim (from whom I am descended), born in Westfield, MA, Abigail, born in Springfield, MA, and Hannah, born in Springfield, MA. From this we can see that sometime between the birth of Ephraim on December 5, 1699, and the birth of Abigail, on March 15, 1704, the family had moved from Westfield, to Springfield.

Ephraim Stiles married first Mary Fowler of Westfield, MA, and they had 7 children (all born in Westfield, MA); Zebediah, Mercy (lived only 1 month), Simeon, Mercy, Experience, Ephraim, Bethiah. Ephraim then married Jemima Meacham, of Enfield, CN, and they then moved from Westfield to Pittsfield, MA, and they then had 7 more children (all apparently born in Pittsfield, MA); Jemima, Elizabeth, Aaron, Moses (who is probably the Moses Stiles whose name appears in a list of Continental soldiers raised in Pittsfield during the Revolutionary War, and served for 3 years), Eli (from whom I am descended), Selah (or possibly Silas), and Rachel. Ephraim moved from Westfield to Pittsfield about 1758. In 1754 he was among those that fled from Pittsfield to Stockbridge for safety before an Indian invasion. He also is among those that first signed the Confession of Faith and Covenant of the "Church of Christ in Pittsfield".

Eli Stiles married Sarah __________. He was in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary period, and served for 1 year in 1776, and for 8 months in 1777. He also enlisted in 1780 "for the war". He is said to have borne the rank of Colonel. They had 6 children; Sarah, born in Pittsfield, MA, Avery Winthrop, born in Pittsfield, MA, William, born in Pittsfield, MA, Rachel (died young), born in Pittsfield, MA, Rachel, born in Hollis, NH, and David (from whom I am descended), born in Hollis, NH. Eli and Sarah moved to Northfield, VT in 1806.

David Stiles married Mary Towne they were farmers and had 7 children; David, Sally, Alvah (from whom I am descended), Mary, Rebecca, Rachel, and Porter.

Alvah Stiles married Sally Flint and lived in Royalton, VT, and had 6 children; Mary Elvira born in Royalton VT, William Lyman (from whom I am descended), born in Roxbury, VT (this may be an error, more research is necessary, as the child born before him and those born after were listed as born in Royalton, and he is listed as born in Roxbury (?)), Sarah, Alvah, Charles C., and Laura.

William Lyman Stiles married Betsey Hemmingway (Hutchinson) (whose first husband was a Hutchinson, who was killed when a tree fell on him, according to family history). They had 7 children, Daniel Lyman, born in Roxbury, VT, Winfield Scott (from whom I am descended), born in Roxbury, VT., Charles Columbus, born in Buffalo Co., WI, Alvah Fremont, born in Buffalo Co., WI, George Ellsworth, born in Buffalo Co., WI, Edward Oliver, born in Buffalo Co., WI, and Chloe Betsey, born in Pleasant Valley, MN. They homesteaded in both Gilmanton, WI (Buffalo Co.), and Pleasant Valley, WI. I was told by Lucy, that in the 1930's William Albert and his wife Lucy (Tubb) Stiles, took Uncle "Wynn (Winfield Scott)", back to Wisconsin to the home place where there is apparently a river named after "Grandpa Stiles". This would have been William Lyman. I cannot verify this river's

existence at this time (2007), as it doesn't seem to appear on any map, and no search has identified it as existing.

This is a listing of the major moves by my ancestors, from Millbrook to Minnesota:

Millbrook, Bedfordshire, England - 1595; London; Windsor, CT. - 1634;
Springfield, MA (Windsor, CT ?); Westfield, MA; Pittsfield, MA;
Hollis, NH - 1774 (?); Royalton, VT; Northfield, VT - 1806;
Roxbury, V T; Gilmanton, WI; Pleasant Valley, MN - 1865;
Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted Co., MN - 1883

This, however, is definitely not the end of the story. It is just the beginning. In my quest for writing this brief history of our branch of the Stiles Family, many other families have been tied into ours. Some of the family names found in this very incomplete work (but not all of them) are: Stiles, Styles, Stylles, Jefferson, Sherman, Hutchinson, Hemmingway, Craddock, Belcher, Oakes, Odineal, Cockrill, Cockriel, Monroe, Munro, Miller, Lillard, and Lackey; to name a few. Some of these names will have their own sections in this work. My sincere hope is that this endeavor may lay the groundwork for someone else's much more comprehensive research project. However, I am not leaving this work. I will continue adding to, correcting, and hopefully enhancing it in the future.

Mr. Francis Stiles came to this country in 1635 on the pinnace Christian, owned by Sir Richard Saltonstall (forefather of all the New England Saltonstalls). Mr. Stiles was a citizen of London and a master carpenter. He was engaged by Sir Richard to lead a group of colonizers to America on behalf of the Earl of Warwick, who had obtained a patent from King Charles I. Mr. Francis (in all probability pronounced 'Frauncis') and his brothers Henry, John, and Thomas, two of their wives and two children, and nineteen other Englishmen cleared the custom house on the Thames 16 Mar 1634/5 and dropped anchor in Boston Harbor 16 Jun 1635, a voyage of three months

His task over here was to build some houses for Sir Richard and his colleagues, who were planning to come over later if things got too hot in England under Charles' persecution of the Puritans.

Mr. Francis didn't get along well with Robert, the son of Sir Richard, and for several years was in and out of court many times against one of the Saltonstalls.

From Dorcester the Stiles party of 27 people moved on to the Windsor colony on the Connecticut River. It is of interest that shortly after building himself a "sufficient house in Connecticut" Francis Stiles went back to England, whether for business or personal reasons I don't know. (Suppose, just suppose, that he had left a wife and daughter named Hannah back there and returned to get them After several months in England, Mr. Francis returned to America for the last time, probably in 1636, and settled down to carry on the business he'd been sent there for." (This is from a section of the Genealogy of the Puritan Settlers of Connecticut, 1852. by RR Hinman.)

One source for the early life of Francis STILES is Francis Stiles in English Records (Hinman Family Association Research Report No. 6) by Barry E. Hinman, dated 17 May 1978. There we read on p. 2, (citing the published parish register in Bedfordshire Parish Registers, v. 20), that Francis STILES was baptized in Milbrook, Bedfordshire, 1 Aug. 1602, son of Thos STYLLES. Other entries in this parish register show that Thomas had a wife Mary in 1604, 1607 and 1612. In 1614 Thomas STYLES, carpenter, was buried on 6 Mar. and on 20 Mar. widow Mary STYLES was buried. An entry for 22 Jan. 1605 records the burial of Joan STYLES, wife of Thomas, but that may be a mistake for the daughter Joan, who was born the prior year. Also recorded as sons of Thomas are Henry, baptized 27 Nov. 1593 and John, 25 Dec. 1595. Thomas is baptized as son of Thomas and Mary, 7 Feb. 1612.

Ten years after his father's death we find the 21 year old Francis in London. On p. 1-2 of the Research Report mentionedabove are extracts from the records of the Worshipful Company of Carpenters. The Court Book, under date of 11 Dec. 1623, records that ffrancys STYLES, son of Thomas of Milbrook in the County of Bedford, carpenter, deceased, is presented by Hugh STANDISH to be his apprentice for seven years, beginning 25 Mar. 1624. A second extract, dated 11 May 1631, records the paying of freeman fees by ffrancis STYLES, he having been made free by his master Hugh STANDISH.

Before leaving the records of the Carpenters' Company we should note the record cited on p. 4 of the above mentioned report. At a Court held on 26 Mar. 1632 Henry STYLES was admitted to the Carpenters' Company by redemption, paying the sum of L5 to the company for the privilege of being admitted without having served an apprenticeship. The Company was induced to grant him this favor at the request of Thomas Lord Coventry, the Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, obviously an important figure. Since Connecticut records refer to Henry STILES, the brother of Francis, as a carpenter, this is apparently the record of his attaining that title.

Francis STILES, aged 28 in May of 1631, was at last free to marry (apprentices were not allowed to do so). Where and how he found his bride we do not know, nor is it certain that Sarah, his widow, was his only wife. That he married someone from London and connected in some way with the Carpenters' Company is of course possible, but it is equally possible that she was neither. As we shall see below it seems that the marriage must have taken place in 1631 or 1632 and that a child was born in 1632. No record of either event has so far been found.

When next we hear of Francis STILES it is as a passenger aboard the ship Christian of London, John White master, sailing from London in March 1635 and arriving in Boston in June. He is listed as aged 35, and he and his fellow travellers have their certificate of conformity to the Church of England from St. Mildred's Breadstreet. With him are: Tho. BASSETT, 37; Tho. STYLES, 20; Tho. BARBER, 21; Jo. DYER, 28; Jo. Harris, 28; Jas. Horwood, 30; Jo. REEVES, 19; Thos. Foulfoot, 22; Jas. Busket, 28; Thos. COOP., 18; Ed. PRESTON, 13; Jo. Cribb, 30; Geo. CHAPPEL, 20; Robert Robinson, 45; Edward PATTESON, 33; Fr. Marshall, 30; Rich. Heylei, 22; Tho. Halford, 20; Tho. Haukesworth, 23; Jo. STILES, 35; Henrie STILES, 40; Jane Worden, 30; Joan STILES, 35; Henry STILES, 3; Jo. STILES, 9 mo.; Rachell STILES, 28.

[Henry R. Stiles, The History of Ancient Windsor (Somersworth, N.H.: New Hampshire Pub. Co., 1976), Vol. 1, p. 44. The names in capitals are those of persons positively known to have settled in Windsor, according to Stiles.]

The History of Ancient Windsor details the story of this company of "servants" to Sir Richard SALTONSTALL, led by Francis STILESon p. 43-59. Suffice it to say here that STILES was a man of consequence, always called Master (Mr.) in the Connecticut records. According to Stiles, op. cit., p. 58, Francis STILES returned to England (probably in the winter of 1636-1637) and came back to Connecticut probably in spring 1637. No record has been found of this voyage, but it seems likely that his wife and child or children returned with him (unless of course they had already joined him on another unknown voyage). He remained in Windsor for some years, but in a deed of 12 Sept. 1647 he is called "Francis STILES, late of Windsor, but now of Saybrook" [Henry R. Stiles, The Stiles Family in America (1895), p. 462]. Henry Stiles, in the latter work, p. 469, citing a court case in the Particular Court of Connecticut, shows that Francis STILES was resident in Stratford in Mar. 1654. Between those two dates he may have been in Windsor again, since on the same page last cited Mr. Stiles quotes a record to the effect that Francis STILLS had 4 children born in Windsor. Since he thinks that Benjamin was the 4th child, and it is known that Benjamin was born around 1651, it seems that STILES must have been in Windsor in 1651.

Conclusion of the above evidence: EH could have met Francis STILES in Windsor, in Stratford, in Saybrook, or, of course, in some other, as yet unknown, place.

The most recent treatment of the family of Francis STILES is that by Donald L. Jacobus in his History and Genealogy of the Families of Old Fairfield (Baltimore: Genealogical Pub. Co., 1976) I:584-585: (This is from:HINMAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION Research Report No. 9 20 June 1993 EDWARD HINMAN IN AMERICAN RECORDS

3. JOHN6 STILES (THOMAS5, EDMOND4, HUMPHREY3 STYLES, HUMPHREY2, JOHN1) was born 25 Dec 1595 in Milbroke, Bedfordshire, England, and died 04 Jun 1662 in Windsor, Hartford Cty., Conn.. He married RACHEL Abt. 1628 in Milbroke, Bedfordshire, England. She was born 1610 in Milbroke, Bedfordshire, England, and died 03 Sep 1674 in Windsor, Conn..

Notes for JOHN STILES:
Copied verbatim from: 'The Stiles Genealogy, The Connecticut Family, by Ezra Stiles':
" John Stiles, the second son of the Millbroke family was baptized in St. Michael's Church, Milbroke,
Bedforshire, England, the 25th of December, 1595; married Rachel ______________, and was forty years of age
when he came to Windsor, Conn.

He had a home lot, next south of that of his brothers Francis, twelve rods wide, along the east side of the highway. In 1663, this was in possession of his eldest son Henry, who resided thereon until 1673, when he exchanged places with John (son of William) Gaylord. In 1660, John Stiles, Jr. had from his father, twelve acres wide, of the north side of Henry's lot, next the ferry road, (Bissel's Ferry Road), which he sold, in 1653, to Nathaniel Bissell. "that I, John Stiles, formerly lived upon."

In the seating of the Meeting-house, at Windsor, in 1659-60, among those who "have paid and were placed in the long seats when they paid," were "John Stiles, Senr.," and his wife, as is evidenced by the 6s. set opposite his name, that being the price for a man and wife.

John Stiles died at Windsor, Conn., June 4, 1662-3, aged 67. His widow died Sept. 3, 1674."

Personal note: I am Gordon Stiles, on July 14th, 2007, while on vacation in the British Isles, my wife, Barbara, and I went to Millbrook, via train, from London. We were able to visit the church in Millbrook where our ancestor, John Stiles, Sr., was christened on Christmas Day, in 1595. It is a small picturesque setting on a hill, where St. Michael's church sits. From that hill, you can look across the countryside and see miles of farmland. There is a plaque on the wall inside St. Michael's, that was placed there by an organization called, The Stiles Family in America, which identifies the Stiles' that came over on the ship called The Christian, to Connecticut, and founded Windsor, in 1634. It was an exhilarating experience. Approximately 40 years have passed since I discovered that my ancestor John Stiles, had been christened in St. Michael's in Millbrook, and now I have seen it.

She was born 19 Apr 1643 in Springfield, Mass., and died 15 Apr 1743 in Windsor, Hartford. Mass..

Notes for JOHN STILES:
Records state that he died in Windsor, Connecticut, and was buried in Springfield, Hamden Cty. Massachusetts.
He is known to have been born in Milbroke (Millbrook), Bedfordshire England, in 1633.

Pres. of Yale, Ezra Stiles, this John's, great-grandson, writes in his Massachusetts Genealogy,
the family tradition, "that a woman and her child paid only a single passage, but double if [the child
were] weaned; and tho' John Stiles was old enough to wean when they came from England, 1634, yt his mother
suckled him [during] the voyage, and so gained his passage."

In a tax list, taken in 1675, for the purpose of raising a tax for the support of the Rivulet Ferry, at Windsor, with a
design of levying it upon such persons and property as would be most benefited therby, John Stiles, is mentioned
as one of those owning "family
horse, and 4 oxen."

4. WILLIAM LYMAN13 STILES (ALVAH12, DAVID11, ELI10, EPHRAIM9, EPHRAIM8, JOHN7, JOHN6, THOMAS5, EDMOND4, HUMPHREY3 STYLES, HUMPHREY2, JOHN1) was born 11 Sep 1827 in Roxbury, Washington Cty., VT, and died 05 Jul 1886 in Pleasant Valley, Mower Cty., MN. He met BETSY HEMMINGWAY 16 May 1852 in Roxbury, Washington Cty., VT, daughter of HEMMINGWAY. She was born 09 Jun 1831 in Brookfield, Orange, VT, and died 18 Nov 1915 in Stewartville, MN.

Notes for WILLIAM LYMAN STILES:
William (Bill) was a stone mason by trade.

In approximately 1858, or so, he took his family, which consisted of his wife, Betsey, and his two young sons
Daniel Lyman, and Winfield Scott , to Gilmanton, WI. It is said that he made his way to the Ohio River where
they took a riverboat down the Ohio, to the Mississippi, where they ended up at whatever riverboat stop was
convenient to Gilmanton, WI. He then proceeded to have 2 more children, while living in Gilmanton. In
approximately 1865 (Win was 10), William moved his family to Pleasant Valley, MN, in Mower County. Here 3
more children were born. My father, Burt J., always told of how his father, Winfield, was 10 years old, and
therefore, one of the big kids, and he walked alongside the oxcart, all the way from Gilmanton, WI, to Pleasant
Valley, MN (except for, possibly the crossing of the Mississippi).

"William came from Vermont with his family to Gilmanton, WI by riverboat "up the Ohio River" (quote from
Lucy Stiles, wife of William's son, William Stiles, who used to hear Grandpa (William Lyman Stiles) tell of
coming to Wisconsin and Minnesota) to the Mississippi to either La Crosse, WI, or Winona, MN."

(There is a family story passed down that I would like to enter here. The story is that there was a fellow that used
the name of this William Stiles, that rode with the outlaw, Jesse James. He is said to have been raised by this
William, and taken in as an orphan. His real name is supposed to have been William "Bill" Chadwell. He,
however used the name "Bill" Stiles. He is the same "Bill" Stiles that was killed in the famous Northfield, MN,
First National Bank robbery. I have not been able to coordinate that story with actual records. I see no census
records of this guy living in Pleasant Valley, MN. My great-grandfather, this William Stiles, moved from
Gilmanton, WI, to Pleasant Valley, MN, in about the year 1865, and the raid on the Northfield bank was in 1876.
In the death photos of Bill Stiles (Chadwell), he appears to be about 25 to 35 years of age. That might mean that
he lived with the Stiles family in Wisconsin. Again, I have no proof of his existence, with this family.)

Notes for BETSY HEMMINGWAY:
Betsey married William Lyman Stiles after her first husband, Mr. Hutchinson, was killed when a tree fell on him,
according to family tradition.

Children of WILLIAM STILES and BETSY HEMMINGWAY are:

i. DANIEL LYMAN14 STILES, b. 13 Mar 1853, Roxbury, VT; d. 23 Sep 1928, Jasper, TX; m. (1) NELLIE A. JOHNSON, 02 Jul 1883, Pleasant Valley, MN; b. Norway; d. 18 Apr 1893; m. (2) ALICE STENGLER, 18 Sep 1895; b. Abt. 1865.

ii. WINFIELD SCOTT STILES, b. 08 Jan 1855, Roxbury, VT; d. 19 May 1939, Stewartville, MN; m. ELLA JEFFERSON, 25 Nov 1882, Rochester, MN; b. 03 Dec 1859, Manchester, IA; d. 05 May 1933, Stewartville, MN.

Notes for WINFIELD SCOTT STILES:
Family legends:
Winfield came from Vermont with his family to Gilmanton, WI by riverboat "up the Ohio River" (quote from
Lucy Stiles, wife of William Stiles, who used to hear Grandpa Stiles (William Lyman Stiles) tell of coming to
Wisconsin and Minnesota) to the Mississippi to either La Crosse, WI, or Winona, MN.

When Win was 10 years old, he moved with his family from Gilmanton, WI, to Pleasant Valley, MN. They
came by oxcart. Because he was 10 years old, he walked beside the oxcart the whole distance, reserving

seating on the oxcart for younger siblings and his mother.

Win was a stage coach driver where he met his future wife, Ella Jefferson.

Family legend has it that he met his wife, Ella Jefferson, when he drove the stage. The Tattersall House was a known stage stop. (Winfield drove a stage, and his son, Burt, my father, related a story concerning driving this stage. Dad stated that his father drove whatever the weather, and at one time his hands were frozen to the reins, and when he got to his stage stop, his hands 'had to be pried loose from the reins', to thaw them out. Winfield's hands were all gnarled from driving stage.) According to the 1880 census, Ella is living with her Aunt & Uncle, Mr & Mrs. Perry A. Honeywell, in Minnesota. They are living in High Forest and he is a hotelkeeper (the only hotel in High Forest at that time is the Tattersall House, so speculation tells us that Perry might be running this hotel, where Ella is helping in the hotel.)

In 1899, Win was elected (or appointed, not sure which) to be the constable of High Forest. I am not too sure what the responsibilities of a constable were, but I am sure that Win could handle the pressure of the job.

Notes for ELLA JEFFERSON: According to the 1880 census, Ella is living with her Aunt & Uncle, Mr & Mrs. Perry A. Honeywell, in Minnesota. They are living in High Forest and he is a hotelkeeper (the only hotel in High Forest at that time is the Tattersall House, so speculation tells us that Perry might be running this hotel, where Ella is helping in the hotel.)

Winfield's hands were all gnarled from driving stage.)

In the 1860 census for Delaware Co., IA, in Delaware twp., P.O. is Manchester; Ella is 7/12 years old, living with her Paternal grandparents, William Jefferson, born in NY (aged 62), & Joan, his wife, born in Iowa (aged 54). Ella's mother is already a widow at the age of 24, Susannah Craddock Jefferson.

Ella and Winfield were married at the home of her parents Nelson and Susanna Sherman, in Rochester, MN.

Generation No. 3

7. BURT JEFFERSON15 STILES (WINFIELD SCOTT14, WILLIAM LYMAN13, ALVAH12, DAVID11, ELI10, EPHRAIM9, EPHRAIM8, JOHN7, JOHN6, THOMAS5, EDMOND4, HUMPHREY3 STYLES, HUMPHREY2, JOHN1) was born 04 Jan 1894 in Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN, and died 21 Jan 1975 in Rochester, MN. He met ODESSA MAE BELCHER 08 Dec 1939 in Olmsted County Courthouse, Rochester, MN, daughter of WILLIAM BELCHER and ELLA OAKES. She was born 23 Mar 1915 in Franklin County, VA, and died 25 Jun 2002 in Rochester, MN.

Notes for BURT JEFFERSON STILES: Burt grew up on the family farm, in Rock Dell Twp., where he was born. He was raised as an only child, as his other 2 siblings, had died prior to his birth. His brother Roy George, died at the age of 6, from diphtheria, and the other unnamed brother was stillborn (and is buried in an unmarked grave on the family farm). Roy is buried in the Pleasant Valley cemetery. Some 'growing- up' stories, Burt told, were interesting to me, as a child. He told how his mother had found a rattle snake wrapped up in his blanket with him, when he was still a baby. He told us many times of travelling to Rochester to visit his maternal grandmother, Susannah Sherman, by horse drawn buggy. They would take a weekend to go to Rochester. They would go half way, and stop and have a picnic, finishing the trip in the afternoon, then come back the next day (Sunday), repeating the process. He never tired of telling stories passed down to him by his father and grandmother (his grandfather, William Lyman Stiles, had died before he was born). He told of how his father, Winfield Scott Stiles, as long as he was all of 10 years old, and one of the big kids, had to walk alongside the oxcart, when they moved from Gilmanton, WI, to homestead anew in Pleasant Valley, MN. He told stories his grandmother had told him, about life in Vermont, before coming to Wisconsin in the late 1850's. Another story possibly of interest to readers, concerns a "Jesse James tie-in". Dad always related the story of one of the James' gang, that was killed when the First National Bank, of Northfield, MN was robbed. He used the name William, or Bill Stiles. His real name was supposedly Bill Chadwell. Dad said that his grandfather had taken this Bill in as an orphan, and raised him, and to show his gratitude, he used my great-grandfather's name when he went on raids with Jesse James. I have not, however, found any documentary evidence that he actually lived around Pleasant Valley, MN, or Gilmanton, WI, two places, in which, my great-grandparents lived. This does not mean that it is not a factually accurate story, just that I have not been able to document it.

Notes for ODESSA MAE BELCHER: Odessa came to Minnesota in April of 1938, with her mother, Ella R. Hodges (Oakes). Her mother came from Virginia to Minnesota to meet a man (George W. Wood), who she had met on a 'Lonely Hearts Club'. They had been writing back and forth for some time. Ella and George soon married. Odessa, then married the man who lived across the road, Burt Jefferson (Cap) Stiles. They then had 7 children. Ella and Odessa came to Minnesota in April of 1938, and Ella and George married that same year, Odessa and Burt married December 8, 1939. It was a hard life that Odessa had come from in the hills of Southeastern Virginia. She told of how she received a large scar on her knee. Her and a sister, Oakey, were cutting wood, and the axe slipped and the leg was badly cut, which was kept from their mother, so they would not get in trouble for being careless. They had wrapped it with a 'not so sterile' piece of cloth. It got infected, and her mother knew she would need medical attention, so she had to be taken 'over the next mountain' by mule to the nearest Dr. He then had 'packed the wound', after cleaning it, with gauze. She told of how the pieces of gauze had worked themselves out over a long period of time.

F. Risser, from Stewartville, attended.

He was then stationed at Sault Ste. Marie Air Force Station, at Sault Ste. Marie, MI, for the rest of his enlistment.

On July 14, 2007, I had an opportunity (along with my wife, Barbara), to visit the little church in the village of
Millbrook, of Bedfordshire, in England, where our ancestor, John Stiles, was christened in 1595. This was very
exciting, as it was a completion of a trek, started some 41 years ago, when I found out that our family came from
this little town, before immigrating to Windsor, Connecticut. There is a plaque on the wall in that church, put
there by an organization called The Stiles Family in America, commemorating the Stiles Family Party's
emigration.

Rebecca married Taylor on the Stiles' Family Farm (one mile west of the unincorporated village of High
Forest), in Rock Dell twp., on August 10, 2006. She chose the day of the wedding by looking on the internet,
and determining the best day from weather statistics. Becca also decided the best time of the day was 7:30
pm, because that was the time when the sun would be 'just right' in the sky. It turned out just as she had
predicted. The reception also, was at the family farm on the next evening. There were many friends,
neighbors, and family members present from both sides.

JEFFERSON FAMILY (OUR BRANCH)

I am still researching our branch of the Jefferson Family. I do not have much information as of this time (2007). There were many Jeffersons living in America early in the history of this nation. I have William Jefferson living in Manchester, IA, and identified as a hotel keeper, and migrating to Iowa from New York where he was born, in the special Iowa census of 1886. In the Federal Census of 1860, he was in Manchester also. His son, Daniel Jefferson, my great-grandfather, was killed by lightning, making my great-grandmother, Susanna, a widow at the age of 24, and with a 7-month old baby, my grandmother, Ella.

Descendants of William Jefferson

Generation No. 1

1. WILLIAM1 JEFFERSON was born Abt. 1798 in Cayuga (maybe), New York, and died Bef. 1870 in IA. He married JOAN (JOHANNA) (?). She was born Abt. 1806 in New York.

Notes for WILLIAM JEFFERSON:
In the 1860 census for Delaware Co., Delaware twp., IA, Susannah Craddock Jefferson is 24 years old, already a
widow, and living at the home of her in-laws William & Joan Jefferson, both born in NY. Her daughter Ella is
7/12 year old (7 months).

In 1840 US Census, he may have been living in Tompkins Co., Hector, NY. There is a William Jefferson listed
with a male child between 5 and 10 years of age (my maternal great-grandfather, Daniel Jefferson, the son of
William, would have been about 7 years old in 1840).

In the Iowa Census of 1886, this William Jefferson is listed as 57 years old, and his wife Johanna, is listed as
being 57 years old and he is a hotel keeper. His son, Daniel is also listed as a hotel keeper. His daughter-in-law,
Susanna, is also listed as being in the same household.

Notes for JOAN (JOHANNA) (?):
In the 1850 US Census for New York, Cayuga Co., the town of Mentz, this Joan is listed as the wife of William
Jefferson, and her name is Joannah (either misspelled by census taker, or this was her real name). Born in NY.

In Iowa Census for 1860, she is listed to have been born in IA, this is not true, as she was living in NY in 1850.

Child of WILLIAM JEFFERSON and JOAN (?) is:

2. i. DANIEL M.2 JEFFERSON, b. Abt. 1833, New York; d. May 1860, Delaware County, Manchester, IA.

Generation No. 2

2. DANIEL M.2 JEFFERSON (WILLIAM1) was born Abt. 1833 in New York, and died May 1860 in Delaware County, Manchester, IA. He married SUSANNAH CRADDOCK 10 Apr 1856, daughter of SAMUEL CRADDOCK and SARAH. She was born 01 Apr 1835 in Cayuga Co., Brutus, New York, and died 22 Sep 1917 in Rochester, MN.

Notes for DANIEL M. JEFFERSON:
In the death records for Delaware Co., IA, it says this Daniel M. Jefferson, was killed instantly by lightning in
May of 1860

In the 1886 Iowa Census for Delaware Co., I have this Daniel listed as living at his parents house in Delaware
County, with his wife. Susannah, and he is listed as a hotel keeper, as is his father. He is said to be 23 years old,
to his wife's, 21.

Notes for SUSANNAH CRADDOCK:
In the 1860 census for Delaware Co., Delaware twp., IA, Susannah Craddock Jefferson is 24 years old, already a
widow, and living at the home of her in-laws William & Joan Jefferson, both born in NY. Her daughter Ella is
7/12 year old (7 months).

(The below information was emailed to me from Elizabeth Orsay Balazs, whose credentials are: "Susanna
Craddock & Nelson Sherman were my step-mother Virginia Ives's great-great-grandparents. I will tell you what I
know about Susanna, but I will also copy this message to my step-mother and father, Paul Orsay, to give you
more information. My information came from them in the first place.")
Susanna's Mother died when she was six, and a wealthy merchant named Henderson took her till her sister
Diannah was married. From Rockville she and husband went to Manchester IA in 1857 and lived on a farm till

1860. She then moved to Chickasaw remaining till July 1861. In July 1861 she married Nelson Sherman.

Children of DANIEL JEFFERSON and SUSANNAH CRADDOCK are:

3. i. ELLA3 JEFFERSON, b. 03 Dec 1859, Manchester, IA; d. 05 May 1933, Stewartville, MN.

ii. INFANT JEFFERSON, b. 18 May 1858.

Generation No. 3

3. ELLA3 JEFFERSON (DANIEL M.2, WILLIAM1) was born 03 Dec 1859 in Manchester, IA, and died 05 May 1933 in Stewartville, MN. She met WINFIELD SCOTT STILES 25 Nov 1882 in Rochester, MN, son of WILLIAM STILES and BETSY HEMMINGWAY. He was born 08 Jan 1855 in Roxbury, VT, and died 19 May 1939 in Stewartville, MN.

Notes for ELLA JEFFERSON:
According to the 1880 census, Ella is living with her Aunt & Uncle, Mr & Mrs. Perry A. Honeywell, in
Minnesota. They are living in High Forest and he is a hotelkeeper (the only hotel in High Forest at that time is
the Tattersall House, so speculation tells us that Perry might be running this hotel, where Ella is helping in the
hotel.)

Family legend has it that she met her husband Winfield Scott Stiles when he drove the stage. The Tattersall
House was a known stage stop. (Winfield drove a stage, and his son, Burt, my father, related a story concerning
driving this stage. Dad stated that his father drove whatever the weather, and at one time his hands were frozen to
the reins, and when he got to his stage stop, his hands 'had to be pried loose from the reins', to thaw them out.
Winfield's hands were all gnarled from driving stage.)

In the 1860 census for Delaware Co., IA, in Delaware twp., P.O. is Manchester; Ella is 7/12 years old, living
with her Paternal grandparents, William Jefferson, born in NY (aged 62), & Joan, his wife, born in Iowa (aged
54). Ella's mother is already a widow at the age of 24, Susannah Craddock Jefferson.

Ella and Winfield were married at the home of her parents Nelson and Susanna Sherman, in Rochester, MN.

Notes for WINFIELD SCOTT STILES:
Family legends:
Winfield came from Vermont with his family to Gilmanton, WI by riverboat "up the Ohio River" (quote from
Lucy Stiles, wife of William Stiles, who used to hear Grandpa Stiles (William Lyman Stiles) tell of coming to
Wisconsin and Minnesota) to the Mississippi to either La Crosse, WI, or Winona, MN.

When Win was 10 years old, he moved with his family from Gilmanton, WI, to Pleasant Valley, MN. They came
by oxcart. Because he was 10 years old, he walked beside the oxcart the whole distance, reserving seating on the
oxcart for younger siblings and his mother.

Win was a stage coach driver where he met his future wife, Ella Jefferson.

Family legend has it that he met his wife, Ella Jefferson, when he drove the stage. The Tattersall House was a
known stage stop. (Winfield drove a stage, and his son, Burt, my father, related a story concerning driving this
stage. Dad stated that his father drove whatever the weather, and at one time his hands were frozen to the reins,
and when he got to his stage stop, his hands 'had to be pried loose from the reins', to thaw them out. Winfield's
hands were all gnarled from driving stage.) According to the 1880 census, Ella is living with her Aunt & Uncle,
Mr & Mrs. Perry A. Honeywell, in Minnesota. They are living in High Forest and he is a hotelkeeper (the only
hotel in High Forest at that time is the Tattersall House, so speculation tells us that Perry might be running this
hotel, where Ella is helping in the hotel.)

In 1899, Win was elected (or appointed, not sure which) to be the constable of High Forest. I am not too sure
what the responsibilities of a constable were, but I am sure that Win could handle the pressure of the job.

Children of ELLA JEFFERSON and WINFIELD STILES are:

i. BABY BOY4 STILES, b. 11 Apr 1891, Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN; d. 11 Apr 1891, High Forest, MN.

Notes for BABY BOY STILES:
This baby was stillborn, and is buried in an unmarked grave on the family farm, in Rock Dell
twp., Olmsted Co., MN.

ii. ROY GEORGE STILES, b. 16 Jun 1884, Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN; d. 10 May 1891, High Forest, MN.

Notes for ROY GEORGE STILES:
Roy George died at the age of 6, of diphtheria. He is buried in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery, in
Pleasant Valley twp., Mower Co., MN.

4. iii. BURT JEFFERSON STILES, b. 04 Jan 1894, Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN; d. 21 Jan 1975, Rochester, MN.

Generation No. 4

4. BURT JEFFERSON4 STILES (ELLA3 JEFFERSON, DANIEL M.2, WILLIAM1) was born 04 Jan 1894 in Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN, and died 21 Jan 1975 in Rochester, MN. He met ODESSA MAE BELCHER 08 Dec 1939 in Olmsted County Courthouse, Rochester, MN, daughter of WILLIAM BELCHER and ELLA OAKES. She was born 23 Mar 1915 in Franklin County, VA, and died 25 Jun 2002 in Rochester, MN.

Notes for BURT JEFFERSON STILES: Burt grew up on the family farm, in Rock Dell Twp., where he was born. He was raised as an only child, as his other 2 siblings, had died prior to his birth. His brother Roy George, died at the age of 6, from diphtheria, and the other unnamed brother was stillborn (and is buried in an unmarked grave on the family farm). Roy is buried in the Pleasant Valley cemetery. Some 'growing- up' stories, Burt told, were interesting to me, as a child. He told how his mother had found a rattle snake wrapped up in his blanket with him, when he was still a baby. He told us many times of travelling to Rochester to visit his maternal grandmother, Susannah Sherman, by horse drawn buggy. They would take a weekend to go to Rochester. They would go half way, and stop and have a picnic, finishing the trip in the afternoon, then come back the next day (Sunday), repeating the process. He never tired of telling stories passed down to him by his father and grandmother (his grandfather, William Lyman Stiles, had died before he was born). He told of how his father, Winfield Scott Stiles, as long as he was all of 10 years old, and one of the big kids, had to walk alongside the oxcart, when they moved from Gilmanton, WI, to homestead anew in Pleasant Valley, MN. He told stories his grandmother had told him, about life in Vermont, before coming to Wisconsin in the late 1850's. Another story possibly of interest to readers, concerns a "Jesse James tie-in". Dad always related the story of one of the James' gang, that was killed when the First National Bank, of Northfield, MN was robbed. He used the name William, or Bill Stiles. His real name was supposedly Bill Chadwell. Dad said that his grandfather had taken this Bill in as an orphan, and raised him, and to show his gratitude, he used my great-grandfather's name when he went on raids with Jesse James. I have not, however, found any documentary evidence that he actually lived around Pleasant Valley, MN, or Gilmanton, WI, two places, in which, my great-grandparents lived. This does not mean that it is not a factually accurate story, just that I have not been able to document it.

Notes for ODESSA MAE BELCHER: Odessa came to Minnesota in April of 1938, with her mother, Ella R. Hodges (Oakes). Her mother came from Virginia to Minnesota to meet a man (George W. Wood), who she had met on a 'Lonely Hearts Club'. They had been writing back and forth for some time. Ella and George soon married. Odessa, then married the man who lived across the road, Burt Jefferson (Cap) Stiles. They then had 7 children. Ella and Odessa came to Minnesota in April of 1938, and Ella and George married that same year, Odessa and Burt married December 8, 1939. It was a hard life that Odessa had come from in the hills of Southeastern Virginia. She told of how she received a large scar on her knee. Her and a sister, Oakey, were cutting wood, and the axe slipped and the leg was badly cut, which was kept from their mother, so they would not get in trouble for being careless. They had wrapped it with a 'not so sterile' piece of cloth. It got infected, and her mother knew she would need medical attention, so she had to be taken 'over the next mountain' by mule to the nearest Dr. He then had 'packed the wound', after cleaning it, with gauze. She told of how the pieces of gauze had worked themselves out over a long period of time.

Children of BURT STILES and ODESSA BELCHER are:

i. ALDEN CLEO5 STILES, b. 06 Sep 1940, Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN.

ii. EDITH MAE STILES, b. 22 Sep 1941, Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN; m. DONALD WHITMORE, 26 Jan 1963; b. 21 Apr 1931, Blue Earth, MN; d. Nov 2001.

iii. GORDON JEFFERSON STILES, b. 25 Oct 1942, Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN; m. BARBARA ANN COCKRILL, 18 Dec 1982, High Forest Community Church, Olmsted County, MN; b. 06 Dec 1947, Columbia, MO.

Notes for GORDON JEFFERSON STILES:
Gordon was born on the family farm in Rock Dell twp., Olmsted County, MN, on October 25, 1942. Dr.
Alden F. Risser, from Stewartville, attended. Gordon attended High Forest District 36 jt. school from first
through sixth grade, then from seventh through twelfth, he attended Stewartville High School, in Stewartville,
MN. After graduation, Gordon enlisted in the United States Air Force on November 29, 1960. Gordon was a
Heavy Ground Radar Repairman when in the USAF. Gordon had Basic Training at Lackland Air Force Base,
in San Antonio, TX, then went to Keesler Air Force Base, in Biloxi, MS, for Radar Repairman Electronics
School. He was then stationed at Sault Ste. Marie Air Force Station, at Sault Ste. Marie, MI, for the rest of
his enlistment.

On July 14, 2007, I had an opportunity (along with my wife, Barbara), to visit the little church in the village
of Millbrook, of Bedfordshire, in England, where our ancestor, John Stiles, was christened in 1595. This was
very exciting, as it was a completion of a trek, started some 41 years ago, when I found out that our family
came from this little town, before immigrating to Windsor, Connecticut. There is a plaque on the wall in that
church, put there by an organization called The Stiles Family in America, commemorating the Stiles Family
Party's emigration.

Notes for BARBARA ANN COCKRILL:
Barbara was born at Boone Co., Hosp., in Columbia, MO.

After graduating from John Marshall High School in Rochester, MN (class of 1966), she enlisted in the US Women's Army Corps. She was trained as an Army Corpsman, while serving her country. She served at Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio, TX.

Barbara went back to school and received her LPN certificate from Rochester Community and Technical School, in Rochester, MN, and worked at the Rochester State Hospital in Rochester, MN.

CRADDOCK FAMILY (OUR BRANCH)

I am continuing research concerning the Craddock Family. I just have bits and pieces. I have found some information, but it is anecdotal, not factual at this time. It would appear that early on bad luck befell this family. Samuel Craddock, the earliest direct ancestor I have found as of this time (2007), was a lacemaker in London. His daughter, my great-grandmother, Susannah Craddock was born in New York, in 1835, putting her father in New York by this time. According to a record obtained by a fellow researcher (Elizabeth Orsay Balazs), which is not verified by this writer, I find the following: "Susanna's mother died when she was six, and a wealthy merchant named Henderson took her till her sister Diannah was married. From Rockville she and her husband went to Manchester, IA in 1857 and lived on a farm till 1860. She then moved to Chickasaw remaining till July 1861. In July 1861 she married Nelson Sherman." According to my records I find her marrying Daniel Jefferson and living in New York, prior to 1860, because the 1860 census records her as already a widow, with a 7-month old daughter, Ella, and living with her in-laws, William and Joah Jefferson, in Manchester, IA. Her husband, Daniel was killed by a lightning strike.

widow, and living at the home of her in-laws William & Joan Jefferson, both born in NY. Her daughter Ella is
7/12 year old (7 months).

(The below information was emailed to me from Elizabeth Orsay Balazs, whose credentials are: "Susanna

Notes for NELSON SHERMAN:
Nelson was a farmer, and he pre-empted 160 acres in Rochester, MN, where St.
Mary's Hospital now stands. It says in his obituary that when he came to Rochester,
the town consisted of 9 shanties.

The acreage that Nelson owned, was used to grow produce, which he sold in the
small village of Rochester. It was called a nursery at that time. I am not sure, but he

may have also raised nursery stock.

Generation No. 3

3. ELLA3 JEFFERSON (SUSANNAH2 CRADDOCK, SAMUEL1) was born 03 Dec 1859 in Manchester, IA, and died 05 May 1933 in Stewartville, MN. She met WINFIELD SCOTT STILES 25 Nov 1882 in Rochester, MN, son of WILLIAM STILES and BETSY HEMMINGWAY. He was born 08 Jan 1855 in Roxbury, VT, and died 19 May 1939 in Stewartville, MN.

Notes for ELLA JEFFERSON:
According to the 1880 census, Ella is living with her Aunt & Uncle, Mr & Mrs. Perry A. Honeywell, in
Minnesota. They are living in High Forest and he is a hotelkeeper (the only hotel in High Forest at that time is
the Tattersall House, so speculation tells us that Perry might be running this hotel, where Ella is helping in the
hotel.)

Family legend has it that she met her husband Winfield Scott Stiles when he drove the stage. The Tattersall
House was a known stage stop. (Winfield drove a stage, and his son, Burt, my father, related a story concerning
driving this stage. Dad stated that his father drove whatever the weather, and at one time his hands were frozen to
the reins, and when he got to his stage stop, his hands 'had to be pried loose from the reins', to thaw them out.
Winfield's hands were all gnarled from driving stage.)

In the 1860 census for Delaware Co., IA, in Delaware twp., P.O. is Manchester; Ella is 7/12 years old, living
with her Paternal grandparents, William Jefferson, born in NY (aged 62), & Joan, his wife, born in Iowa (aged
54). Ella's mother is already a widow at the age of 24, Susannah Craddock Jefferson.

Ella and Winfield were married at the home of her parents Nelson and Susanna Sherman, in Rochester, MN.

Notes for WINFIELD SCOTT STILES:
Family legends:
Winfield came from Vermont with his family to Gilmanton, WI by riverboat "up the Ohio River" (quote from
Lucy Stiles, wife of William Stiles, who used to hear Grandpa Stiles (William Lyman Stiles) tell of coming to
Wisconsin and Minnesota) to the Mississippi to either La Crosse, WI, or Winona, MN.

When Win was 10 years old, he moved with his family from Gilmanton, WI, to Pleasant Valley, MN. They came
by oxcart. Because he was 10 years old, he walked beside the oxcart the whole distance, reserving seating on the
oxcart for younger siblings and his mother.

Win was a stage coach driver where he met his future wife, Ella Jefferson.

Family legend has it that he met his wife, Ella Jefferson, when he drove the stage. The Tattersall House was a
known stage stop. (Winfield drove a stage, and his son, Burt, my father, related a story concerning driving this
stage. Dad stated that his father drove whatever the weather, and at one time his hands were frozen to the reins,
and when he got to his stage stop, his hands 'had to be pried loose from the reins', to thaw them out. Winfield's
hands were all gnarled from driving stage.) According to the 1880 census, Ella is living with her Aunt & Uncle,

Mr & Mrs. Perry A. Honeywell, in Minnesota. They are living in High Forest and he is a hotelkeeper (the only hotel in High Forest at that time is the Tattersall House, so speculation tells us that Perry might be running this hotel, where Ella is helping in the hotel.)

In 1899, Win was elected (or appointed, not sure which) to be the constable of High Forest. I am not too sure what the responsibilities of a constable were, but I am sure that Win could handle the pressure of the job.

Children of ELLA JEFFERSON and WINFIELD STILES are:

i. BABY BOY4 STILES, b. 11 Apr 1891, Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN; d. 11 Apr 1891, High Forest,
MN.
Notes for BABY BOY STILES:
This baby was stillborn, and is buried in an unmarked grave on the family farm, in Rock Dell
twp., Olmsted Co., MN.
ii. ROY GEORGE STILES, b. 16 Jun 1884, Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN; d. 10 May 1891, High Forest,
MN.
Notes for ROY GEORGE STILES:
Roy George died at the age of 6, of diphtheria. He is buried in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery, in
Pleasant Valley twp., Mower Co., MN.
4. iii. BURT JEFFERSON STILES, b. 04 Jan 1894, Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN; d. 21 Jan 1975,
Rochester, MN.

Generation No. 4

4. BURT JEFFERSON4 STILES (ELLA3 JEFFERSON, SUSANNAH2 CRADDOCK, SAMUEL1) was born 04 Jan 1894 in Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN, and died 21 Jan 1975 in Rochester, MN. He met ODESSA MAE BELCHER 08 Dec 1939 in Olmsted County Courthouse, Rochester, MN, daughter of WILLIAM BELCHER and ELLA OAKES. She was born 23 Mar 1915 in Franklin County, VA, and died 25 Jun 2002 in Rochester, MN.

Notes for BURT JEFFERSON STILES:
Burt grew up on the family farm, in Rock Dell Twp., where he was born. He was raised as an only child, as his
other 2 siblings, had died prior to his birth. His brother Roy George, died at the age of 6, from diphtheria, and the
other unnamed brother was stillborn (and is buried in an unmarked grave on the family farm). Roy is buried in
the Pleasant Valley cemetery. Some 'growing- up' stories, Burt told, were interesting to me, as a child. He told
how his mother had found a rattle snake wrapped up in his blanket with him, when he was still a baby. He told us
many times of travelling to Rochester to visit his maternal grandmother, Susannah Sherman, by horse drawn
buggy. They would take a weekend to go to Rochester. They would go half way, and stop and have a picnic,
finishing the trip in the afternoon, then come back the next day (Sunday), repeating the process. He never tired of
telling stories passed down to him by his father and grandmother (his grandfather, William Lyman Stiles, had
died before he was born). He told of how his father, Winfield Scott Stiles, as long as he was all of 10 years old,
and one of the big kids, had to walk alongside the oxcart, when they moved from Gilmanton, WI, to homestead
anew in Pleasant Valley, MN. He told stories his grandmother had told him, about life in Vermont, before
coming to Wisconsin in the late 1850's. Another story possibly of interest to readers, concerns a "Jesse James tie-
in". Dad always related the story of one of the James' gang, that was killed when the First National Bank, of
Northfield, MN was robbed. He used the name William, or Bill Stiles. His real name was supposedly Bill
Chadwell. Dad said that his grandfather had taken this Bill in as an orphan, and raised him, and to show his
gratitude, he used my great-grandfather's name when he went on raids with Jesse James. I have not, however,
found any documentary evidence that he actually lived around Pleasant Valley, MN, or Gilmanton, WI, two
places, in which, my great-grandparents lived. This does not mean that it is not a factually accurate story, just that
I have not been able to document it.

Notes for ODESSA MAE BELCHER:
Odessa came to Minnesota in April of 1938, with her mother, Ella R. Hodges (Oakes). Her mother
came from Virginia to Minnesota to meet a man (George W. Wood), who she had met on a 'Lonely Hearts Club'.
They had been writing back and forth for some time. Ella and George soon married.
Odessa, then married the man who lived across the road, Burt Jefferson (Cap) Stiles. They then

had 7 children. Ella and Odessa came to Minnesota in April of 1938, and Ella and George married that same year, Odessa and Burt married December 8, 1939. It was a hard life that Odessa had come from in the hills of Southeastern Virginia. She told of how she received a large scar on her knee. Her and a sister, Oakey, were cutting wood, and the axe slipped and the leg was badly cut, which was kept from their mother, so they would not get in trouble for being careless. They had wrapped it with a 'not so sterile' piece of cloth. It got infected, and her mother knew she would need medical attention, so she had to be taken 'over the next mountain' by mule to the nearest Dr. He then had 'packed the wound', after cleaning it, with gauze. She told of how the pieces of gauze had worked themselves out over a long period of time.

Children of BURT STILES and ODESSA BELCHER are:

i. ALDEN CLEO5 STILES, b. 06 Sep 1940, Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN.

ii. EDITH MAE STILES, b. 22 Sep 1941, Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN; m. DONALD WHITMORE, 26 Jan 1963; b. 21 Apr 1931, Blue Earth, MN; d. Nov 2001.

iii. GORDON JEFFERSON STILES, b. 25 Oct 1942, Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN; m. BARBARA ANN COCKRILL, 18 Dec 1982, High Forest Community Church, Olmsted County, MN; b. 06 Dec 1947, Columbia, MO.

Notes for GORDON JEFFERSON STILES:
Gordon was born on the family farm in Rock Dell twp., Olmsted County, MN, on October 25, 1942. Dr.
Alden F. Risser, from Stewartville, attended. Gordon attended High Forest District 36 jt. school from first
through sixth grade, then from seventh through twelfth, he attended Stewartville High School, in Stewartville,
MN. After graduation, Gordon enlisted in the United States Air Force on November 29, 1960. Gordon was a
Heavy Ground Radar Repairman when in the USAF. Gordon had Basic Training at Lackland Air Force Base,
in San Antonio, TX, then went to Keesler Air Force Base, in Biloxi, MS, for Radar Repairman Electronics
School. He was then stationed at Sault Ste. Marie Air Force Station, at Sault Ste. Marie, MI, for the rest of
his enlistment.

On July 14, 2007, I had an opportunity (along with my wife, Barbara), to visit the little church in the village
of Millbrook, of Bedfordshire, in England, where our ancestor, John Stiles, was christened in 1595. This was
very exciting, as it was a completion of a trek, started some 41 years ago, when I found out that our family
came from this little town, before immigrating to Windsor, Connecticut. There is a plaque on the wall in that
church, put there by an organization called The Stiles Family in America, commemorating the Stiles Family
Party's emigration.

Notes for BARBARA ANN COCKRILL:
Barbara was born at Boone Co., Hosp., in Columbia, MO.

After graduating from John Marshall High School in Rochester, MN (class of 1966), she enlisted in the US Women's Army Corps. She was trained as an Army Corpsman, while serving her country. She served at Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio, TX.

Barbara went back to school and received her LPN certificate from Rochester Community and Technical School, in Rochester, MN, and worked at the Rochester State Hospital in Rochester, MN.

THE BELCHER FAMILY (OUR BRANCH)

The Belcher Family is a very old family, and quite extensive in America. There are many convoluted branches, and it was rather difficult to differentiate the correct individuals. There are a plethora of William Belchers, from, at least two of which, I am descended. Another complicating factor, is the fact that there are three Isham Belchers in a line before the two William Belchers. I believe that I am correct in my lineage determinations. In order to maintain some kind of order to these complicated individuals, I tried to identify them in the following paragraphs, by the years of their birth. I hope this adds some order to what could be a mess otherwise. There is a plus, however to the study of this family. The Belcher Family saw fit to pretty much "stay put", when they finally settled on a farm in Franklin Co., Snow Creek, VA., where my mother Odessa Mae Belcher was born, along with a few generations of Belchers before her. (In some Franklin Co., Land holdings and Tax rolls, I found that Isham Belcher (born in 1763), had purchased Snow Creek land on 27 May 1816. This may have been the same land that his son, Isham, his grandson, William, his great-grandson, William, and his great-great-grandaughter (my mother) Odessa Mae, lived on. I suspect it was.) This helped immensely in my searches. However, the state of Virginia saw fit to complicate things and "muddy the waters" somewhat, by changing the names of the counties, and even the state boundaries at various times throughout the history of Virginia. (This is what is said about the history of Franklin County: "Franklin County was formed in 1779 from parts of Bedford County and Henry County. It was named in honor of Benjamin Franklin. It is bounded by Bedford, Pittsylvania, Henry, Patrick, Floyd, and Roanoke counties. The act establishing the county authorized that the first court be held at the home of Benjamin Seawell. The justices were to determine where subsequent courts were to be held until the courthouse could be erected. In 1779 Lewisburg was established on land purchased by the commissioners for the erection of the courthouse. Louisburg is the county seat." This county was home to Confederate General Jubal Anderson Early, and Booker T. Washington, a slave who became one of the main civil rights activists of his era. During Prohibition, local wits named Franklin County the "Moonshine Capital of the World," a name trumpeted today by the local chamber of commerce.) Fortunately, the State of Virginia had the good sense and forsight not to change Franklin County as many times as other counties, which made the research a little bit easier.

Some other aspects of the Belcher Family that I found rather fascinating, was their participation in the important conflicts that, early on, shaped our nation's history. Isham Belcher (born in 1732) certainly "did his time" early in our nation's infancy. When in the 1750's, France and Britain were fighting in Europe, the war soon spread to North America. The British Colonists wanted to take over the French lands in North America. The British wanted to take over the fur trade in the French held territories. This inevitably drew the colonists into that conflict. Isham enlisted in His Majesty's service on 28 June 1757. (His service is recorded under "Miscellaneous Enlistments for the French and Indian Wars" And, according to a book entitled "Colonial Soldiers of the South, 1732-1774", it is stated that: "Isham Belcher is listed in the Roll of Captain Robert Mckenzie's Company, 1757-1758". It is said that he was 24 years of age at the time, and was 5'10" tall, and enlisted in Amelia, VA.) The war ended in 1759, when British Major James Wolfe captured Quebec. In the peace treaty of 1763, the British got most of the French land in North America. Also, as a result of the war, the British began taxing the colonists to pay for the war, for which, the colonists had volunteered. The son of this Isham, just mentioned, who was also named Isham (born in 1769), was also privileged to serve his country. He served in the War of 1812 He is listed in a document entitled "Muster Rolls and Pay Rolls of the Virginia Militia in the War of 1812", and it says that he is entitled to land bounty under act of Congress, 28 Sept. 1850". The next Isham (born in 1796) is listed with his father, Isham, as having served in the War of 1812. Note that this Isham would have been approximately 16 years of age. Following in the family's tradition of serving his country, William I. Belcher (born in 1828), enlisted for the Civil War, in the Confederate Army. He served in Comany D. of the 24th Virginia Infantry (Company D, was organized in June 1861), and was wounded in the left knee in the Battle of Seven Pines. He applied for a pension on this basis, on 10 June 1896, in Franklin Co., VA.

There is another fact worthy of note. The Belcher Family was able to maintain control of their land before, during, and after the Civil War. This is in stark contrast to some other land holders in the South, whose propertiess were lost and/or devastated in other ways, by that terrible war.

(From information obtained via the internet:

"Surname: Belcher This most interesting surname is of Old French origin, and originated as a nickname for someone of a cheerful, pleasant demeanour or disposition, or for someone considered to be good looking, derived from the Old French elements "beu, bel", fair, lovely and "chere", face, countenance. Variants of the surname in the modern idiom include Belsher, Belshaw, Beuscher, Beaushaw, Bewshire, Bewshaw, Bewshea, Beushaw and Bowsher. The name is also found in the York cycle of Medieval Mystery Plays as a term of address, often derogatory: Herod addresses a messenger, "Bewcher! wele ye be", and when Annas orders a boy who has been bound to be brought in, the soldier announces, "Lo, here is the belschere broght that ye bad bring". The surname is one of only a few names which have retained their original spelling since the first recordings in the early 13th Century (see below). Richard Belecher is recorded in the Hundred Rolls of Gloucestershire in 1275, and Alexander Belcher is mentioned in the Feet of Fines of Essex in 1453. Jonathan Belcher (1682 1757) was governor of Massachusetts Colony (1729 1741), and was one of the founders of Princeton University. He was a wealthy merchant, having inherited a substantial fortune from his father, Andrew Belcher (died 1717). The family were established there by Andrew Belcher in 1654. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Thomas Belcher, which was dated 1219, witness in the "Assize Court Rolls of Yorkshire", during the reign of King Henry 111, known as "The Frenchman", 1216 1272. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.")

Notes for HUGH BELCHER:
The surname Belcher is uncommon and of Old French Origin. The origination of the name came from the old
French word Bel-Chere meaning good companion, or good cheer.
The Belcher surnamed appeared in medieval England after William the Conqueor's army came to England in
1066.
Early derivitives of the name was Belcher, Belche, Belesur, Bellasis, Belsher, Belsire,. Other variants of the name
reached the America's. Belesur is believed to the the original name that our line of Belcher's came from.
The Belcher surname can be found in legal documents in Staffordshire England in the 1100's when Ralph De
Belcher was witness to a deed.
"Historical Collections of Staffordshire" Vol 1. Page 291.

description:

off), and Ermine. The greyhound symbolizes alertness in the discharge of duty. The Chief signifies dominion and
authority, and ermine and vair (fur) authority and honor. Ermine and vair are the oldest of furs of heraldy and

Bio of Isham E. Belcher Written by: Gregory Clyde Belcher

Research by: Gayl Wells and Greg Belcher
May 2002

Their names are not remembered down through the history of the United States.
As common people during the birth of our nation, they lived lives that vanished into the backdrop of time.
Yet to us they are just as important as the founding fathers of America. A clue here and a hint there gives us
glimpse at more then a name. Though lacking important facts about their personal lives, we can piece together
clues and hints and imagine who this person was and how his days were spent.

The lives of men then was often hard and not too long. They and their families faced the constant threat of Indian
attacks on the outlying areas of civilization.

During the 1700's a large portion of people in Virginia wanted to establish farms in an area where most of the
land had not been settled by earlier generations of colonists. A large number of Chesterfield familes began to
migrate to Bedford County, which is now Franklin County, Virginia.
Isham Belcher was among those hardy pioneers.
In 1758, Isham bought 100 acres of land from William Thompson. He also sold the land of Richard Belcher,
deceased, that same year.

Description of Isham E. Belcher

Isham E. Belcher was born 1732 in Virginia, and died Abt. 1798 in Wythe Co., Va.
As a man he would not have stood out in a crowd. He was approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall with rounded
shoulders. (according to French and Indian War records) His hair was light in color.

In the 1750s, France and Britain were fighting in Europe. The war soon spread to North America. British
Colonists wanted to take over French land in North America. The British wanted to take over the fur trade in the
French held territory. This inevitably drew the colonists into the conflict.
Isham enlisted in his majesty's service on 28 June 1757.

Enlistment

The war ended in 1759 when British Major General James Wolfe captured Quebec. In the peace treaty of 1763
the British got most of the French land in North America. Also as a result of the war, the British began taxing the
colonists to pay for the war.

After the war, Isham married (1) Elisabeth Clay 02 June 1759 in Chesterfield Co., Va, daughter of William Clay
and Martha Runyun.

A History of The Middle New River Settlements and Contiguous Territory.
By David E. Johnston (1906).
“The Belcher Family”
Isham Belcher married a Miss Hodges, in Franklin County, Virginia, and came to what is now Mercer County,
then Wythe, in 1796, and settled on what is known as the Waldron Farm, about two miles Southeast of the present
city of Bluefield. He was a nephew of Phoebe Clay, the wife of Mitchell Clay, the elder. Isham Belcher and wife
had a family of thirteen children, eleven sons and two daughters; the sons were Obediah, Isham, Jesse, Asa, Henry
D., John, Micajah, Jonathan, Moses, James, and Robert D. From Isham Belcher, the elder, descended all the
people of that name scattered over a number of the counties of Southern West Virginia. Captain George W.
Belcher, a grandson of the elder Isham, Alexander Belcher and many of that name and blood were bold,
courageous Confederate soldiers in our Civil War.

Notes for WILLIAM I. BELCHER:
(Note: Franklin county was formed in 1785 from parts of Bedford County and Henry County. It was named for
Benjamin Franklin. This county was home to Confederate General Jubal Anderson Early, and Booker T.
Washington, a slave who became one of the main civil rights activists of his era. During Prohibition, local wits
named Franklin County the "Moonshine Capital of the World," a name trumpeted today by the local chamber of
commerce.)

my great-great-grandfather, father of William I. Belcher.)

Belcher, William J. D Private Private (Note: The middle initial here is listed as J., however it may have been an I., which is what I have in other records, and his son was William I., possible got mis-written by the military (?).)

(Below is some history of the 24th VA Infantry, to which, my great-great-grandfather, William Belcher belonged, he is said to have been in Company D.)

24th Regiment, Virginia Infantry

24th Infantry Regiment was assembled in June, 1861, with men from Floyd, Franklin, Carroll, Giles, Pulaski, Mercer, and Henry Counties. It served under Early at First Manassas, then was assigned to Early's, Kemper's, and

W.R. Terry's Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia. The 24th participated in the campaigns of the army from Williamsburg to Gettysburg except when it was detached to Suffolk with Longstreet. Later it was involved in the engagements at Plymouth and Drewry's Bluff, the Petersburg siege north of the James River, and the Appomattox operations. The regiment contained 740 men in April, 1862, and reported 189 casualties at Williamsburg and 107 at Seven Pines. It lost 4 killed, 61 wounded, and 14 missing at Frayser's Farm, had 8 wounded at Fredericksburg, and had about forty percent of the 395 engaged at Gettysburg disabled. Many were lost at Sayler's Creek with no officers and 22 men surrendered on April 9, 1865. The field officers were Colonels Jubal A. Early and William A. Terry; Lieutenant Colonels Peter Hairston, Jr. and Richard L. Maury; and Majors William W. Bentley, Joseph A. Hambrick, and J.P. Hammet.

The father of the William I. born about 1828 is Isham Belcher. (From various sources.)

On the 1860 Slave Schedule for VA, William had 1 male slave, aged 58.

1850, listed as living with his parents, in Franklin Co., VA.

Notes for LUCINDA ODINEAL:
In the US Census for 1900, for Snow Creek twp., Franklin Co., VA, taken on
june 8th, Lucinda is listed as being born in Feb. 1833, and is 76 years old,
and the mother of William I. Belcher, the head of the household. (Both of her
parents were listed as being born in virginia.)

In the 1910 Census, William is listed as having a wife, Ella R., my grandmother,
and listed as living with him in that census, is a Morgie Odineal, who is listed as his aunt. I think, therefore, that
his mother, Lucinda's, maiden name may have been Odineal.

Children of WILLIAM BELCHER and LUCINDA ODINEAL are:

i. CHARLES C.13 BELCHER, b. 1855, Snow Creek, Franklin Co. VA.

ii. WILLIAM I. BELCHER, b. 07 May 1856, Snow Creek, Franklin Co. VA; d. 22 Nov 1919, Franklin Co., VA;

In the 1900 Census, for Snow Creek twp., Franklin Co., Virginia, William is listed with his wife of that time, Julia H., age 39, himself, his mother, Lucinda, aged 67, and 2 children, Lula F., aged 9, and William H., aged

4. This census was taken on 8th June, 1900.

According to the census of 1910, taken on April 18, 1910, William was living

I have discovered the following information, but it is very much unverified. If it is checked out and proven true, a lot of my history on the Belcher family will have to be revised greatly:

In 1830 Federal Census for Franklin Co., VA, probably this Isham is listed as Isum.
At that time he had 4 boys, and 5 girls in the household. By these ages, it has to
be assumed they are not all his children, as some are as old as, between 20 and 30,
At this time, Isham is only 34.

In the 1830 Census for Amelia, VA, an Isham Belcher is listed as having a boy under 5
years of age, and a girl of under 5, also. The boy has to be his son William.

Isham shows up on the 1860 Census for VA, but not on the 1870 Census.

On the 1860 Slave Schedule, Isham had one male slave, aged 62.

Descendants of Odessa Mae Belcher

Generation No. 1

1. ODESSA MAE14 BELCHER (WILLIAM I.13, WILLIAM I.12, ISHAM11, BENJAMIN10, RICHARD D.9, JOHN B.8, ROBERT7, WILLIAM THOMAS6, HENRY5, WILLIAM4, EDMUND3, JOHN2, HUGH1) was born 23 Mar 1915 in Franklin County, VA, and died 25 Jun 2002 in Rochester, MN. She met BURT JEFFERSON STILES 08 Dec 1939 in Olmsted County Courthouse, Rochester, MN, son of WINFIELD STILES and ELLA JEFFERSON. He was born 04 Jan 1894 in Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN, and died 21 Jan 1975 in Rochester, MN.

Notes for ODESSA MAE BELCHER: Odessa came to Minnesota in April of 1938, with her mother, Ella R. Hodges (Oakes). Her mother came from Virginia to Minnesota to meet a man (George W. Wood), who she had met on a 'Lonely Hearts Club'. They had been writing back and forth for some time. Ella and George soon married. Odessa, then married the man who lived across the road, Burt Jefferson (Cap) Stiles. They then had 7 children. Ella and Odessa came to Minnesota in April of 1938, and Ella and George married that same year, Odessa and Burt married December 8, 1939. It was a hard life that Odessa had come from in the hills of Southeastern Virginia. She told of how she received a large scar on her knee. Her and a sister, Oakey, were cutting wood, and the axe slipped and the leg was badly cut, which was kept from their mother, so they would not get in trouble for being careless. They had wrapped it with a 'not so sterile' piece of cloth. It got infected, and her mother knew she would need medical attention, so she had to be taken 'over the next mountain' by mule to the nearest Dr. He then had 'packed the wound', after cleaning it, with gauze. She told of how the pieces of gauze had worked themselves out over a long period of time.

Notes for BURT JEFFERSON STILES: Burt grew up on the family farm, in Rock Dell Twp., where he was born. He was raised as an only child, as his other 2 siblings, had died prior to his birth. His brother Roy George, died at the age of 6, from diphtheria, and the other unnamed brother was stillborn (and is buried in an unmarked grave on the family farm). Roy is buried in the Pleasant Valley cemetery. Some 'growing- up' stories, Burt told, were interesting to me, as a child. He told how his mother had found a rattle snake wrapped up in his blanket with him, when he was still a baby. He told us many times of travelling to Rochester to visit his maternal grandmother, Susannah Sherman, by horse drawn buggy. They would take a weekend to go to Rochester. They would go half way, and stop and have a picnic, finishing the trip in the afternoon, then come back the next day (Sunday), repeating the process. He never tired of telling stories passed down to him by his father and grandmother (his grandfather, William Lyman Stiles, had died before he was born). He told of how his father, Winfield Scott Stiles, as long as he was all of 10 years old, and one of the big kids, had to walk alongside the oxcart, when they moved from Gilmanton, WI, to homestead anew in Pleasant Valley, MN. He told stories his grandmother had told him, about life in Vermont, before coming to Wisconsin in the late 1850's. Another story possibly of interest to readers, concerns a "Jesse James tie-in". Dad always related the story of one of the James' gang, that was killed when the First National Bank, of Northfield, MN was robbed. He used the name William, or Bill Stiles. His real name was supposedly Bill Chadwell. Dad said that his grandfather had taken this Bill in as an orphan, and raised him, and to show his gratitude, he used my great-grandfather's name when he went on raids with Jesse James. I have not, however, found any documentary evidence that he actually lived around Pleasant Valley, MN, or Gilmanton, WI, two places, in which, my great-grandparents lived. This does not mean that it is not a factually accurate story, just that I have not been able to document it.

F. Risser, from Stewartville, attended.

He was then stationed at Sault Ste. Marie Air Force Station, at Sault Ste. Marie, MI, for the rest of his enlistment.

On July 14, 2007, I had an opportunity (along with my wife, Barbara), to visit the little church in the village of
Millbrook, of Bedfordshire, in England, where our ancestor, John Stiles, was christened in 1595. This was very
exciting, as it was a completion of a trek, started some 41 years ago, when I found out that our family came from
this little town, before immigrating to Windsor, Connecticut. There is a plaque on the wall in that church, put
there by an organization called The Stiles Family in America, commemorating the Stiles Family Party's
emigration.

Notes for REBECCA ELIZABETH STILES:
Rebecca married Taylor on the Stiles' Family Farm (one mile west of the unincorporated village of High
Forest), in Rock Dell twp., on August 10, 2006. She chose the day of the wedding by looking on the internet,
and determining the best day from weather statistics. Becca also decided the best time of the day was 7:30
pm, because that was the time when the sun would be 'just right' in the sky. It turned out just as she had
predicted. The reception also, was at the family farm on the next evening. There were many friends,
neighbors, and family members present from both sides.

OAKES FAMILY (OUR BRANCH)

The Oakes Family history is as convoluted as all others. Unfortunately, when such an endeavor is undertaken, as to write such a history, all one has for information is what someone else has compiled previously. (Don't misunderstand that statement, however, I am very thankful for any information from whatever source it is derived.) I am therefore going to simply reiterate some history written and compiled by Lonnie L. Okes, Jr. (1950-1956), called " 'Neath the Oaks". (Quoting verbatim.)

"Some years after the Revolution there were born in Virginia two brothers by the names of William and Anthony Oakes.

William was married more than once, and was the father of Joab, George, William B., Daniel, and James Allen Oakes. William's brother Anthony was the father of Abigail Oakes, who married her cousin William B. Okes -- they founded the Southern West Virginia Okes clan. Either the elder William or Anthony had daughters Sally and Betsy; it is thought that William was the one.

Joab and James Allen Oakes lived in Pittsylvania County, VA. George Oakes went to Campbell County, VA., Daniel Oakes went to East Tennessee; some Oakeses live near Elizabethton today. William, who used a different spelling of the surname (Okes), went to Floyd County, VA., and later to Southern West Virginia.

James Allen Oakes was the father of George W. Oakes, who wed Mary Jefferson, grandaughter of Joab Oakes. Joab and James A. were half-brothers. James A. also had a daughter, Almira H. Oakes.

In the Okes papers at Dunn, W.VA., is a letter from Almira to Mrs. Abigail "Oakes" at Dunns --Abigail's husband died in 1887. The letter was dated March 21, 1889, at World's , near Chatham, VA. In the letter, Almira told her aunt-in-law that money left her by the Kirby estate was ready and that she could get it by writing William Overby or going after it. Almira said her mother must go to the court house before April 1 to "fix to draw her pension. Mother can't see one thing. She keeps to her bed most of her time. She draws a pension of thirty dollars ayer on the account of farther (father) getting kild in the War..."

James Allen Oakes was killed in the Battle of Gettysburg, PA., between the Federals and the Rebels during the Civil War. A descendant, the Rev. J.H. Oakes, of Chatham, said he was killed on the second day of the three-day battle.

Among other members of the William Oakes family who served in the Confederate Army were: Samuel Oakes, who was killed: Moses Oakes, who died of a disease: Nathaniel K. Oakes, Joab Oakes, Jr., William B. Okes, and Jesse A. Okes.

The records of the Southern Historical Society contain the following of the Virginia Oakes-Oaks-Okes family who were surrendered in 1865 by Gen. Robert E. Lee; Fred. Oaks, Co. H., 11th Virginia Regiment, First Corps (commanded by Lt. Gen. Longstreet), private; E.W. Oakes, Co. E., 23rd Virginia Regiment, First Corps, private; J. Oakes, Co. C, 46th Virginia Regiment, private; Samuel Oakes, Ambulance Corps, Army of Northern Virginia, private." (End quote.)

I hasten to add here that my compilation of Oakes' ancestry goes further back than William and Anthony, as mentioned above, but not much has been learned about them, except for their names. The accuracy of these names and dates, must be accepted with some doubt and trepidation possibly. Please note the different spellings used in the above accounts of the name (Okes, Oak, Oaks, and Oakes). My thanks must be again given to Lonnie L. Okes, Jr., for the above information, without which, this work would not be possible. (I came upon a copy of this compilation while visiting with Dan and Virgie Oakes, in Penhook, VA, in the early 1990's. Prior to this time, I had no idea it even existed.)

OAKES FAMILY COAT OF ARMS

(This is the armorial description of the Oakes (Oaks) Coat of Arms: "Sable, on the fess engrailed between six slips of oak fructed or, three oak leaves vert." The family crest is as follows: "An oak tree proper, fructed or, encircled with palisades." The family motto is: "Quercus robur salus patriae." ("The strength of the oak is the safety of the country".)

In a booklet entitled "'Neath the Oakes", written (compiled) by Lonnie L. Okes, Jr. (1950-1956), it is stated that Joab Oakes, Jr., "was a soldier in the War Between the States, in Company E of the 42nd Regiment, under Sam Swanson.". (I have found several references to his service with the 21st Va. Regiment, but not with the 42nd, I have however found that the "42nd Franklin Invincibles" was a Regiment from Franklin Co. - Gordon Stiles.)

A grandson, R.M. Oakes, of Rocky Mount, VAL, said his grandfather was knows as Press Oakes, and lived in Martinsville, VA, for some time before his death.

21st Regiment, Virginia Infantry

21st Infantry Regiment was organized in June and mustered into Confederate service in July, 1861, at Fredericksburg, Virginia. Most of the men were recruited in the city of Richmond and the counties of Charlotte, Mecklenburg, Cumberland, and Buckingham. After participating in Lee's Cheat Mountain and Jackson's Valley campaigns, the unit was assigned to J.R. Jones's and W.Terry's Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia. It took an active part in many conflicts from the Seven Days' Battles to Cold Harbor, then fought with Early in the Shenandoah Valley and the Appomattox Campaign. This regiment reported 60 casualties at First Kernstown and in May, 1862, totalled about 600 effectives. It lost 37 killed and 85 wounded at Cedar Mountain, had 3 killed and 9 wounded at Second Manassas, and reported 4 killed and 40 wounded at Chancellorsville. Of the 236 engaged at Gettysburg about twenty percent were disabled. Only 6 officers and 50 men surrendered. The field officers were Colonels William Gilham, John M. Patton, Jr., and William A. Witcher; Lieutenant Colonels Richard H. Cunningham, Jr., and William P. Moseley; and Majors William R. Berkeley, Alfred D. Kelly, John B. Moseley, and Scott Shipp. ]

Summary Combat Narrative US Army Flag WW II Memorial Flag

After arriving in England, the division crossed the English Channel and landed across Utah Beach, France. On 14 Jun 44, the division attacked toward Cherbourg with the 313th and 315th Infantry on 19 Jun 44, and reached the outer fortifications of the fortress-city the following day. The division began its main assault 22 Jun 44 as the 313th Infantry drove against the strongpoint at La Mare á Canards. The 314th Infantry captured Fort du Roule on 26 Jun 44.

The division left Cherbourg and moved south to hold defensive lines along the Ollonde River until 2 Jul 44. The division then pushed down the west coast of the Cotentin Peninsula in driving rain and took La Haye-du-Puits after repelling German counterattacks on 8 Jul 44. It crossed the Ay River behind the 8th Infantry Division on 26 Jul 44 and took Lassey the next day, capturing Laval on 6 Aug 44. It sped past Le Mans on 8 Aug 44 and established a bridgehead near Mantes-Gassicourt over the Seine River 20 Aug 44, which it held against German counterattacks 22-27 Aug 44. It moved forward with the 2nd Armored Division and crossed the Therain River at the end of the month.

The division then concentrated in the Joinville area on 10 Sep 44, and the 314th Infantry battled through Charmes 12 Sep 44 and forded the Moselle as the 313th Infantry captured Poussay and the 315th Infantry seized Neufchâteau 13 Sep 44. After heavy combat as the division cleared its sector, the offensive resumed on 18 Sep 44. On 20 Sep 44 the 314th Infantry encountered German fire as it reached the Meurthe River near Lunéville attempting to turn the German flank. A battalion crossed the river near St. Clement the next day but had to be withdrawn. The division moved forward despite intense attacks from the Forêt de Parroy, the 315th Infantry losing and then recovering part of Lunéville 22 Sep 44 as the 314th Infantry faced counterattacks at Moncel. The 314th Infantry frontally assaulted Forêt de Monden the following day in heavy combat and the division entered the Forêt de Parroy. The 315th Infantry was temporarily isolated in fighting at the main road junction there on 5 Oct 44. An all-out divisional assault forced a German withdrawal from the forest with the final capture of the main road junction 9 Oct 44.

The division next took Emberménil 3 Oct 44 and battled for the high ground east of the town 15-22 Oct 44. It was relieved in this area 24 Oct 44.

It rested at Lunéville and returned to the attack 13 Nov 44 with the 314th and 315th Infantry out of the Montigny area which carried it across the Vezouse with the capture of Fremonville 19 Nov 44. The division consolidated north of Strasbourg 25 Nov 44 and fought the Battle of Hagenau 9-11 Dec 44.)

The division reached the Lauter River at Schiebenhardt on 15 Dec 44, to have an important role in successfully defending against the last major German offensive, launched in the Ardennes and known as Operation Nordwind. The division held defensive lines at Wissembourg until 2 Jan 45. It then moved to the southern portion of the Rhine River held by Task Force Linden (42d Infantry Division). The Germans established a bridgehead at Gambsheim and by 6 Jan 45 the division had battled through Stattmatten to relieve encircled elements of the task force. The division remained on the defensive along the Moder River until 6 Feb 45.

The division went into reserve and detached the 314th Infantry to forward positions overlooking the Roer as a diversion for Operation GRENADE 23 Feb 45. The division crossed the Rhine on 24 Mar 45. It reached the Rhine-Herne Canal against strong opposition 29 Mar 45. The following day the 314th Infantry concluded the drive to Emser Canal and the division established defensive positions there until 6 Apr 45.

The division then relieved the 35th Infantry Division west of Gelsenkirchen and attacked across the Emser and Rhine-Herne Canals on 7 April 45. It reached the Ruhr on 9 Apr 45 and moved against resistance east along the Ruhr, establishing a bridgehead at Kettwig 11 Apr 45. It was relieved the following day and reverted to security duty in the Dortmund area where it was posted when hostilities were declared ended on 7 May 45.

9. ALVIN R.10 BELCHER (ELLA RADO9 OAKES, JOAB8, JOAB7, WILLIAM O.6, DANIEL5, WILLIAM4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1 OAK) was born 18 Oct 1906 in Franklin Co., VA, and died 10 Jul 1967 in Greensboro, Guilford Co., NC. He married BLANCH LAWSON, daughter of JOSEPH LAWSON and ELIZABETH. She was born Abt. 1910, and died Bef. Jul 1967.

Notes for ALVIN R. BELCHER:
Alvin changed his name during his early adulthood, to Delbert Clyde Mills, so all of
his descendants are Mills'. My mother, his sister, Odessa Belcher, mentioned
that it had something to do with him possibly being AWOL from the Army.

On his death certificate (Delbert Mills), it says his parents are unknown, and that
he died in Greensboro, Guilford Co., Gilmore twp., of North Carolina. I am sure this is my uncle. He died of
pneumonia after a 2 day illness. His son, Clyde O. Mills is listed on the death certificate as "informant".

10. ODESSA MAE10 BELCHER (ELLA RADO9 OAKES, JOAB8, JOAB7, WILLIAM O.6, DANIEL5, WILLIAM4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1 OAK) was born 23 Mar 1915 in Franklin County, VA, and died 25 Jun 2002 in Rochester, MN. She met BURT JEFFERSON STILES 08 Dec 1939 in Olmsted County Courthouse, Rochester, MN, son of WINFIELD STILES and ELLA JEFFERSON. He was born 04 Jan 1894 in Rock Dell Twp., Olmsted County, MN, and died 21 Jan 1975 in Rochester, MN.

Notes for ODESSA MAE BELCHER: Odessa came to Minnesota in April of 1938, with her mother, Ella R. Hodges (Oakes). Her mother came from Virginia to Minnesota to meet a man (George W. Wood), who she had met on a 'Lonely Hearts Club'. They had been writing back and forth for some time. Ella and George soon married. Odessa, then married the man who lived across the road, Burt Jefferson (Cap) Stiles. They then had 7 children. Ella and Odessa came to Minnesota in April of 1938, and Ella and George married that same year, Odessa and Burt married December 8, 1939. It was a hard life that Odessa had come from in the hills of Southeastern Virginia. She told of how she received a large scar on her knee. Her and a sister, Oakey, were cutting wood, and the axe slipped and the leg was badly cut, which was kept from their mother, so they would not get in trouble for being careless. They had wrapped it with a 'not so sterile' piece of cloth. It got infected, and her mother knew she would need medical attention, so she had to be taken 'over the next mountain' by mule to the nearest Dr. He then had 'packed the wound', after cleaning it, with gauze. She told of how the pieces of gauze had worked themselves out over a long period of time.

Notes for BURT JEFFERSON STILES: Burt grew up on the family farm, in Rock Dell Twp., where he was born. He was raised as an only child, as his other 2 siblings, had died prior to his birth. His brother Roy George, died at the age of 6, from diphtheria, and the other unnamed brother was stillborn (and is buried in an unmarked grave on the family farm). Roy is buried in the Pleasant Valley cemetery. Some 'growing- up' stories, Burt told, were interesting to me, as a child. He told how his mother had found a rattle snake wrapped up in his blanket with him, when he was still a baby. He told us many times of travelling to Rochester to visit his maternal grandmother, Susannah Sherman, by horse drawn buggy. They would take a weekend to go to Rochester. They would go half way, and stop and have a picnic, finishing the trip in the afternoon, then come back the next day (Sunday), repeating the process. He never tired of telling stories passed down to him by his father and grandmother (his grandfather, William Lyman Stiles, had died before he was born). He told of how his father, Winfield Scott Stiles, as long as he was all of 10 years old, and one of the big kids, had to walk alongside the oxcart, when they moved from Gilmanton, WI, to homestead anew in Pleasant Valley, MN. He told stories his grandmother had told him, about life in Vermont, before coming to Wisconsin in the late 1850's. Another story possibly of interest to readers, concerns a "Jesse James tie-in". Dad always related the story of one of the James' gang, that was killed when the First National Bank, of Northfield, MN was robbed. He used the name William, or Bill Stiles. His real name was supposedly Bill Chadwell. Dad said that his grandfather had taken this Bill in as an orphan, and raised him, and to show his gratitude, he used my great-grandfather's name when he went on raids with Jesse James. I have not, however, found any documentary evidence that he actually lived around Pleasant Valley, MN, or Gilmanton, WI, two places, in which, my great-grandparents lived. This does not mean that it is not a factually accurate story, just that I have not been able to document it.

Gordon was born on the family farm in Rock Dell twp., Olmsted County, MN, on October 25, 1942. Dr. Alden

F. Risser, from Stewartville, attended. Gordon attended High Forest District 36 jt. school from first through sixth grade, then from seventh through twelfth, he attended Stewartville High School, in Stewartville, MN. After graduation, Gordon enlisted in the United States Air Force on November 29, 1960. Gordon was a Heavy Ground Radar Repairman when in the USAF. Gordon had Basic Training at Lackland Air Force Base, in San Antonio, TX, then went to Keesler Air Force Base, in Biloxi, MS, for Radar Repairman Electronics School. He was then stationed at Sault Ste. Marie Air Force Station, at Sault Ste. Marie, MI, for the rest of his enlistment.

On July 14, 2007, I had an opportunity (along with my wife, Barbara), to visit the little church in the village of
Millbrook, of Bedfordshire, in England, where our ancestor, John Stiles, was christened in 1595. This was very
exciting, as it was a completion of a trek, started some 41 years ago, when I found out that our family came from
this little town, before immigrating to Windsor, Connecticut. There is a plaque on the wall in that church, put
there by an organization called The Stiles Family in America, commemorating the Stiles Family Party's
emigration.

Notes for REBECCA ELIZABETH STILES:
Rebecca married Taylor on the Stiles' Family Farm (one mile west of the unincorporated village of High
Forest), in Rock Dell twp., on August 10, 2006. She chose the day of the wedding by looking on the internet,
and determining the best day from weather statistics. Becca also decided the best time of the day was 7:30
pm, because that was the time when the sun would be 'just right' in the sky. It turned out just as she had
predicted. The reception also, was at the family farm on the next evening. There were many friends,
neighbors, and family members present from both sides.

STILES'
FAMILY

THE COCKRILL FAMILY

There are many dynamics going on in this family and the related families, as in all families. This is what makes family history and family research interesting. There was a recent change in the spelling of the family name. This was facilitated, according to family stories, by what was possibly misinterpreted handwriting. It seems that when Lowell Ercel Cockriel was becoming interested in 'keeping company' with Anna Josephine Lillard, he had written his name on a piece of paper. It looked to her as if it was spelled Cockrill (the e looked to her like a "lazy l"), and upon finding out much later into the relationship that it was really an e, she, being the strong and independent woman that she was, decided that she started dating a man named Cockrill, and therefore, she would continue to see this man Cockrill, and that was how it was going to be, and it was so. The name then, and thereafter has been Cockrill, thanks to "Mama Jo", who became the wife of Lowell Ercel Cockriel (Cockrill). The Cockrill family was first found in Wythe Co., VA, from there they were in Grayson Co., KY, then cross country to Platte Co., MO, and Edgerton, MO, and on to Cincinnati, IA, and after several moves necessitated by military and school administration assignments, finally ended up in Rochester, MN.

As in all families, occasionally the peripheral families that we marry into, add many interesting facets to our research. This family is no different. (If this were not so, nobody would bother to do family history.) As of the early history of this family, I have very little direct knowledge, as of this time (2007). I will continue researchingthis Cockrill family. We find the Cockriels coming to Missouri before 1860, immigrating there from Virginia (some research indicates Kentucky).

Dr. David James Cockrill, and his father before him Lowell Ercel Cockriel (Cockrill), were both educators. David, being an Elementary School Principal.

LILLARD FAMILY (OUR BRANCH)

The research on the Lillard Family, is a continuing work. As in most American families, who migrated to the Great Plains states, they had more important things to do besides keeping good historical records. I find the Lillard's moving from Kentucky to Missouri, in the mid-1800's.

Notes for JOHN ALEXANDER MONROE:
This is from the obituary of John Alexander Monroe: John Monroe, one of the early settlers of the county, died at
his home south of town, May 24, 1908 after a brief illness, aged 90 years and 9 days.

A short time ago he fell from a load of hay, receiving injuries which no doubt hastened his death. Otherwise he
bid fair to live eight or ten years longer. The deceased was born in Pendleton Co. Kentucky, May 15, 1818, and
came to this county in 1938. Nov. 5, 1857, he was married to Miss Meyers, a daughter of Rev. T. Sanford Myers.
To this union we recall the names of four sons living, viz.: William, living in Oklahoma; Geo. and Frank of this
county, and J. Ed of Nevada, who together with the wife, survive and mourn his death.

He united in 1848 with the Baptist Church at Edinburg and lived a consistent Christian life until called to his
reward at a ripe old age.

The funeral services were held at Edinburg Church, Monday, May 25, 1908, Rev. James A. Rice officiating after which the body was laid to rest in the church cemetery.

The death of Mr. Monroe brings sadness to hearts of many people outside the immediate family. He was a splendid type of citizenship. In all walks of life he was honored and respected for his sterling integrity and worth. It is an honor to be accounted a friend of a man like the late John Monroe.

On July 14, 2007, I had an opportunity (along with my wife, Barbara), to visit the little church in the village of Millbrook, of Bedfordshire, in England, where our ancestor, John Stiles, was christened in 1595.

(Note: This work cannot be copied without the express

permission of the writer, Gordon Jefferson Stiles)FAMILY SURNAMES - MEANINGS

BELCHER-1. English: (of Norman origin): nickname from Old French beu, bel ‘fair’, ‘lovely’ + chere ‘face’, ‘countenance’. Although it originally meant ‘face’, the word chere later came to mean also ‘demeanor’, ‘disposition’ (hence English cheer), and the nickname may thus also have denoted a person of pleasant, cheerful disposition. There has been some confusion with Bowser. 2. English: nickname for someone given to belching.

COCKRILL-English: from a diminutive of Middle English cok in the sense ‘rooster’ (see Cocke). This name has also absorbed some cases of the French cognates Coquerille and Coqueral. Variant spelling of Cockrell.

CRADDOCK-English, from Welsh: from the Welsh personal name Caradog meaning ‘amiable’. A British bearer of this name is recorded in the Latin form Cara(c)tacus and remembered for his leadership of a revolt against the Roman occupation in the 1st century ad.

JEFFERSON-English: patronymic from Jeffrey.

LACKEY-Northern Irish form of the Scottish habitational name Leckie. (Or, Leckey.)

LILLARD- 1. Belgian: habitational name from either of two places called Li(e)laar, in Gavere and Sint-Maria-Oudenhove, East Flanders. 2. English: unexplained.

MONROE-1. Scottish: according to tradition, this is a rare example of a Gaelic surname of topographic origin, the first element of which is probably Gaelic mun, a mutated form of bun ‘foot’, or British minit ‘hill’. In Ireland this name has sometimes been used as an equivalent of O’Mellan (see Mellon) and Milroy. 2. Scottish bearers of this name are descended from Donald O’Kane, who in the 11th century migrated from the mouth of the Roe to Ferrindonald in Cromarty, Scotland. There his descendants, as barons of Foulis and vassals of the earls of Ross, held lands along the Firth of Cromarty.

MOYER-Irish: possibly a shortened form of MacMoyer, Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac an Mhaoir ‘son of the steward’, from maor ‘steward’.

OAKES-1. English: topographic name, a plural variant of Oak. 2. Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Dubhdara ‘son of Dubhdara’, a personal name composed of the elements dubh ‘dark’ + dara(ch), genitive of dair ‘oak’, by translation of the main element of the Gaelic name.

STILES-English: topographic name from Old English stigel, stigol ‘steep uphill path’ (a derivative of stîgan ‘to climb’). Or, from the english word style, where you cross over the fence.
