- Revolutionary War Monument, Marion, Smyth Co., VA (170 KB)
In Marion, VA, there is a monument commemorating the service of the group of patriots who served in the Battle of Guilford Courthouse and the Battle of King's Mountain. Thomas Jefferson said that the Battle of King's Mountain "turned the tide of war in favor of the United States and led Cornwallis to remove to Yorktown and surrender." It was a savage battle and many patriots died or were wounded severely. These soldiers marched in Sept. 1775 to Williamsburg, where Patrick Henry needed help to force Gov. Dunmore to return the gunpowder he had taken from the colonists. My ancestor, Justus (Justice) Hubbell or Hubble is mentioned, as well as Matthew Bishop and Levi Bishop, the brothers of his wife, Waitstill Bishop. Picture courtesy of Connie Lautenbach!

Out of the "Bridal Room" leads the "Bridal Chamber". During the Revolution when it was impossible to get knitting needles, Uriah invented a wire-drawing apparatus which drew out wire by horse power, and it was the first wire-drawing machine in America. Uriah & Irene's son Rodney Hanks (my ancestor) was born in the house and was considered a mechanical genius (as well as his brother Benjamin who made clocks & who knew Aaron Burr.) Rodney also built the first silk mill in America and was married to Olive Freeman. Rodney's sister Philena Hanks married Andrew Meneely, the famous bell maker of West Troy, NY.

- Brosius - Bohner - Miesse - Voss 4 generation pict (230 KB)
This is believed to be a three or four generation picture of my family. My sister and I are trying to sort out who is in the picture. She believes that the dress is later than 1870. One option is: Eva Brosius Bohner 1792-1872,Mary Alice Miesse Voss 1844-1917, Phoebe Bohner Miesse 1820-1905 and the baby, Vivian Venus Voss (later wife of Samuel S. Harrell) 1870-1959.The other option is that Phoebe Bohner Miesse is on the left, daughter Emma (Miesse) Illyes is in the center and Mary Alice (Miesse) Voss is on the right. The baby would then probably be one of Emma's. Her children were Eda Belle b. c. 1873, George b. c. 1874, Vesta Bertis b. c. 1877, Samuel J. b. c. 1879 and Theresa F Illyes b. c. 1882.

- The Descendants of Nicholas Wilder (276 KB)
The first Wilder in America was Martha Wilder, the widow of Thomas Wilder of Shiplake England. Thomas was the great grandson of Nicholas Wilder, a man of German ancestry who probably went to England with the Earl of France that landed atat Milford Haven. This Nicholas Wilder was a military chieftain in the army of the Earl of Richmond at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, which defeated Richard III. As a result, Henry VII presented his friend Nicholas Wilder with a coat of arms and a landed estate in Shiplake England on the 15th of April 1497. This property, known as the Sulham Estate, is still owned by direct descendants of Nicholas Wilder. My own descendancy would be the 15th generation from Nicholas Wilder. The last Wilder in my family was my great grandmother Edith Wilder, wife of Arthur Hoyt Scott, the President of Scott Paper Company. Her parents were Martha Jane Stewart and Brig. General John Thomas Wilder of Civil War fame. Gen'l Wilder's "Lightning Brigade" (part of the Army of the Cumberland) at Chicamauga held off Rosecrans and contributed to a tremendous victory and the saving of lives. Perhaps Nicholas Wilder was whispering in his ear that day, helping to lead him to victory. In addition to this brigade, Wilder was known for the introduction of the Spencer Repeating Rifles and for making the first two cannons used by the State of Indiana in the Civil War. After the war he was a postmaster and built the Cloudland hotel on top of Roan Mountain, TN a lovely area known for the profuse pink blooms of the wild rhododendrums. Wilder was also one of the founders of the Republican Party.
