his head & shoulders severely injuring him, but he was a good swimmer & swam ashore. "Paddy" Jack showed Peter the paper when he came home & Peter passed it to his wife who on reading it said: "that is our George". Peter sent the paper to his brother in law, Conrad Stenger who took it to George Smith's & his son Sam read it & passed it to his father, saying: "Pap, there's your picture" as George looked so much like his father. They wrote to the Doctor or Priest as George had been sent to the nearest hospital which was Catholic saying they would come to see him. George Smith had meanwhile learned that his son was innocent & that his wife had stolen the money & lied to him & he permitted her to live in his house, but had nothing further to do with her. When the Priest read the letters to George, he said he would not see them. So the next morning, he had gone, the hurt being more about his shoulders than his head. Some time after this business as a witness called him to Phila & at a hotel somewhere where the stage coaches stopped, Conrad Stenger at table recognized George & much against his will made him go with him to his father's, but he would not stay over night, only remaining a few minutes & rode on to take next stage coach. He went back to Steamboating. His step brother was sent to the penitentiary out near where he lived & conceiving it was he, George went to the

penitentiary & sure enough, it was the son of the step mother who had wronged him.

Kate says her Uncle Daniel Rotharmel died in June of the year when Sallie Brown was two yrs old, say in June 1866. She then went to her brother's John Turney's at Gbg? & cared for her father & also for a large daughter of John's by his first wife who had to used a wheelchair. Then
V5 Page 80
went to live with her sister Mrs Brown in Pgh. She died there at Peter Bates & the will noted at item 33 Page 253 Book 3 is hers & the notice at item 32 same page is the record of the death of her daughter.
Page 298 Book 3. Kate says Nancy Hough's child by her second husband was very small & that she died out in the country at James Milligan's where her mother, Nancy Hough was then lying sick. James Milligan had married Ginsey Bell, Nancy's daughter by her 1st husband. Milligans, fearing they would have to keep the baby, Rose Ann Pollock took it to town with her & after a week or so, the baby's father Dr Brown came with his sister Anna McConanghy? & took the baby which his sister raised. The baby was called Anna & when she was 14 yrs old accompanied her father & her aunt above named on a visit to Rose Ann Pollock's in West Newton. Nancy Hough soon followed her daughter Josie in death dying at her daughter's Mrs Milligan's when Josie's baby was five months old. Kate says Mrs Hough is buried at Sewickly & she thinks Josie is too, as well as her father who died about the time Josie was born. The Houghs were mad at Nancy, the widow getting the dower interest she did in the estate & put her out of the house when Josie was a week old.
Kate says Andrew Neff lost

I feel well assured that this Christian Merckel is the eldest son of Peter Merckel see his will Page 125 Book 1 & is the great grandfather of Augustus Markle of Medina Co, Ohio born in 1827 & still living who is the son of George who was the son of George who was one of the sons & Exrs of Christian. Corroborative of this was or is Kate's statement that Gideon Markle who was sent to the Penitentiary had two brothers, very nice men who lived up above the Capt Conrad Stenger farm (that of gg father Casper Markle's old farm) "but not far, close by", as told to her by her mother, that these two brothers of Gideon would often come evenings to Capt Stenger's on neighborly visits & when Gideon was found out, they came to him for information which at first he studiously avoided giving them. Kate said one of them had a couple of daughters or more & we see that Christian had five daughters & six sons. It would be natural after the disgrace Gideon brought on the family for them to sell out & go elsewhere which I think Christian has done. Go to Reading & see when he & wife Catarina sold the farm he
V5 Page 82
got from his father Peter & then go again to York Pa & see when he bought in Cadorus Tp.
Page 332 Book 3
Here it appears that Christian Merckle bought land in York Co from Jacob Canto July 28, 1787. His father died in 1785. Kate says her grandmother who was present when the two brothers of Gideon came to ask her father Capt Stenger what he knew of the charges Vs Gideon, was then a little girl. He had told them he didn't know & when his wife asked him what it was they were asking about, he wouldn't even tell her, as he didn't want the knowledge of what he had learned to come out through him.
Page 369 Book 3 Lines 31 to 35.
Kate says her mother or grandmother told her that Gideon Markle had two girls "best dressed in the county" & two boys.
Page 372 Book 3.
Kate says Martha Jane, daughter of Gasper Markle was taken by Uncle John C. Plumer to his home on his promise to educate her. He kept her to do his work & then he failed to keep his word to educate her & when abt 18 went out to Aunt Mary Miller's to live & was reported a good worker by Mrs Miller. She then stayed awhile at Leah Robb's & went from there to school & after her father's death, she went to Mt Pleasant Pa to school & then taught for a time. John Carothers
V5 Page 83
hesitated about marrying her because of her mother's craziness & told someone that he had all kinds of trouble with her after he did until the children were born & then she wasn't so bad.
Page 376 Book 3
Kate says the first wife of John Markle of John was she thinks a Kelly. Says John was sick & was up in Mt P. Tp with his brother, David & died there & was brought to West Newton Cem as was his son David who died on the train. His son Andrew came home sick & died & is buried in West Newton Cem. She says Andrew's son Guz now lives at Monessen Pa. It is now 2:52 PM & I must go in town.

Kate says that Maria Mausberger, a sewing girl who worked or sewed at John Robertson's (son of Uncle John) when he had his second wife told Kate's Aunt Kate that they abused the daughter of the first wife so that she could hardly stand it & the girl told Maria that she was going to run off. Maria asked her to not do so until she was gone as they wd blame her for it. Accordingly, after Maria had gone, the daughter ran off & got as far as Stewartsville where her father overtook her & took her back home & beat her so unmercifully that she died soon after. His brother in law, Wm Plumer said "he was
V5 Page 84
just an old brute like his father". Kate says her mother told her that a daughter by the 2d wife when five months old was very sick & they thought was going to die, but Mrs Wm Plumer took it & it pulled through & lived.
Kate has heretofore told me of the widow Wm Plumer married for his second wife after Sallie Robertson died.
Page 387. Kate says Joanna, daughter of Wm Plumer died in Dixmont & abt which she has heretofore spoken Lizzie married Ault & lived at Scottdale Pa & Kate's sister Adele sewed once for them & said Mrs Ault was a very nice woman. They kept hotel & when Adele was there Mrs Ault's brothers George & Johnston were living with her. It is now 11 PM & we will quit & let Kate go to bed.

This is not the John Jack farm, but he & his wife were buried on it. It was the Clement Finley farm & then his son John Finley's.
Reading to Cousin Kate this morning from the West Newton Times Sun of the 11th inst of the 10th Annual Reunion on 18th inst at Olympic Park McKeesport Pa of the McGrew family, she said the mother of William Newlon ("Billy Nolan") of the Willow Tree heretofore often mentioned
V5 Page 85
in these records, was a McGrew & that there was a strain of insanity in the McGrew family. She said William Newlon had a brother Simon Newlon, who was well do do, but imagined he would come to want & hung himself. They had another brother whose daughter married David Longanecker, oldest brother of Benj Rotharmel's wife. His name was Elijah Newlon. William Newlon, who was called "Pappy" Newlon took sick at the Willow Tree very suddenly & died before 11 o'clock that night. Some thought he had cholera. Kate's mother told her about old Mrs Newlon being a McGrew. William Newlon's wife was Keziah Robbins. Simon was married & was living with his daughter when he hung himself.

Speaking of William Pollock aged 90, from Mexico Mo, Kate said three brothers, Pollocks, married three cousins viz: William Pollock who married Nancy daughter of Polly Bell, Stephen Pollock who married Rose Ann Grier, widow, daughter of Nancy Bell & John Pollock who married Polly, daughter of John Finley. Kate thought that William Boyd, Page 387, who married Nellie Robertson was a brother of Israel Miller's wife. She said they eloped. Nellie told her father that she wanted to go over to Rotharmels which met with his complete approbation & he gave his consent. She did not go to Rotharmel's but eloped with Boyd & her father was so angry she did not go back home for some five years. She was taken
V5 Page 86
down sick & wasn't expected to live when her father with his then wife, came to see her. Nellie told the servant girl in serving the meal to her father & step mother to put on all the broken & cracked dishes they had & the raggedest & worst table cloth on the table. When he was leaving, he said to her: "Nellie, send the wagon over for your things' which she did & Kate said she had plenty of things, beds, bed clothes, clothing etc." By her quick perception even on a sick bed, she thus outwitted a cruel hard hearted father.

Kate says that William Hunter, the bachelor, left his niece Jennie Hunter daughter of his brother David (Mary Jane Hunter born Nov 7, 1850) who nursed & cared for him $10,000. When the twins, Lucetta & Margaret were born to Mrs Hunter on July 7, 1853, she said she couldn't care for both of them, so her sister, Mrs Israel Miller took Margaret & raised & on Feby 8, 1872, she married Thomas Hanna, only son of Henry Hanna, (who however had a whole lot of girls) just a little while before Israel Miller married his second wife. Henry Hanna & Thomas are both dead.

Kate says this is a son of old Joseph & Matilda his wife who was daughter of John C. Carothers. He was much older than her & carried her about when she was a baby. He was married, but once. This son, Nehemiah never married neither
V5 Page 87
did his brother Joseph. Both of them & their parents died in Pgh & all four were brought to West Newton Cem for burial. There was also a Samuel who is also buried in West Newton Cem. He married a Pgh girl who was left g'd'n of their only child, a son & Sam's sister Harriet got it away from her & spent it. Sam's widow married again & started a millinery store & offered Harriet work, which she declined. Kate thinks Sam's son & Harriet are still living. She asked Mary Thompson who died recently at Homestead, what became of these Stokely boys' money, as their father had a lot & she said she guessed it got away when the estate was being settled up. Harriet above mentioned & Caroline, her sister, daughters of Joseph & Matilda went to Phila together & Caroline died there unmarried & Harriet brought her remains to West Newton & she was buried in West N. Cem. This was probably not long after Kate's sisters "Han" & "Sade" died. Certainly before her first fall. Mary Thompson was not related, but did all the sewing for the family when they were rich & had much money to spend.
No 2, William Fulton Stevenson & Elenor Rankin (whose father was a West Newton tax collector) his wife. He was a son of A.F.

Stevenson, when Tom was 6 mos old would come on from Birmingham Pa to her sister Martha's marriage to Hornish. The trip was too much for her.
