"Centerville is the site of one of the oldest settlements in the eastern part of Crawford County. Daniel McBride first disturbed the wilds of nature by clearing a small patch in 1801 near the northeast corner of First and Erie Streets...Nathan Winton, the second permanent settler, moved with his family from Connecticut, and settled on land constituting a gore and situated in the western part of the borough. He purchased the right of settlement from Mr. Buell, who had located here, made a slight clearing and commenced construction of a dam. Mr. Winton and his son Samuel completed the dam, and prior to 1810 erected a saw mill close to the junction of East and West branches of Oil Creek. They operated the mill for many years."

"Wintons lived near Spartansburg at the time of the 1800 census, Mead Twp.; In Brokenstraw by 1806-1808, but in Oil Creek (later to become Rome) Township by 1810. The following story is told by Wash Winton (son of Samuel) and written down by Mrs. James Bement Clark: 'SAMUEL, still in his teens, left on Brokenstraw Creek in a boat, loaded with lumber, going down the Allegheny, Ohio and Mississippi rivers to New Orleans. He was working among men for wages. Returning, he walked along the Mississippi to the mouth of the Ohio, where he hired out to help push a keel boat upstream to Pittsburgh. Once in Pittsburgh, he set out on foot to reach his home on the Brokenstraw. After his second trip to New Orleans, he boarded a sailing vessel headed for Baltimore. As it sailed from the Gulf of Mexico and turned north along the coast, Samuel found himself in an unexpected adventure. A British man-of-war stopped them, took all the sailors and left the passengers to shift for themselves. Samuel volunteered to command the ship and safely brought the vessel into Baltimore. Once again he was walking home to the Brokenstraw.' "

"An early Methodist society flourished at Centerville, Rome Twp., prior to 1831, meeting at the cabin of Samuel Winton, the school house and elsewhere. Among its members were Samuel Winton and his wife, James Coyle (son of Roger), WILLIAM HASKINS and Roswell Buell. "

Page 223: Nathan Winton of Scottish descent.
NATHAN WINTON was only fifteen when the American Revolution was starting. At that age, in December 1775, he entered the Connecticut Militia and served three months in "City and neighborhood of New York." Then at age 17, Nathan enlisted in the regular army on 5 February 1777, at Stratford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, for a term of three years in Captain Josiah Lacey's Company in the Fifth Connecticut Regiment in the Continental Establishment, commanded by Colonel Philip B. Bradley. His muster roll gave his height 5 feet 6 inches; eyes, blue; hair, dark; complexion, light. Later muster rolls show he was at Valley Forge in March, April and May of 1778. He served in said company and regiment until May 1779 at which time a regiment of light infantry was called for from the Connecticut line to join General Wayne into which regiment NATHAN WINTON was transferred. He then served in a company commanded by Capt. John St. John and took part in the storming of Stony Point, New York. He remained in this regiment until 1780, when he was ordered to join his former company and regiment. Next he was taken prisoner at Bergen, New Jersey, 12 May 1780 and 'carried' to New York and kept in close confinement until the last of January 1781, when he was exchanged and rejoined his former regiment and was honorably discharged 23 June 1781. That same year, in or about the month of November, he again enlisted for three years and served in Capt. Eagan's Company, in Colonel Sheldon's Regiment of Horse where he served until his discharge at Danbury, Connecticut, at the close of the war in 1783."

Nathan applied for his pension 10 June 1820 in Crawford Co., PA and in Certificate #12171 was granted $96.00 per year.
When Nathan applied for his pension he stated the following regarding his health:
'I have been by occupation a farmer, but from my age and infirmities, I am totally unable to obtain a livelihood by labour -- I am blind of one eye, and about two years and a half ago I had both my ancles dislocated by a log drawn over them, which have never yet perfectly healed and I do not expect ever will. Unless assisted by my country, I must depend for subsistance on public or private charity.'

Notes for Thomas Banks:
[638441.FTW]

SOURCE: Power-Banks Ancestry by William H. Powers

"Thomas, born 13 November, 1707, died at the early age of forty, perhaps from small-pox; the family appears to have been in general very long lived. Thomas' first wife was Hester; she died 12 April, 1732, apparently without leaving any children. His second wife was Sarah. Their children were Hester, born 1735; Ruth, 1736; Seth, 13 July, 1738; baptized the 27th; Thaddeus, born in May, 1740; Sarah, born in 1746. Of his offspring little is known except of the son Thaddeus. The will of Thomas Banks is dated 18 April, 1747. He had confidence in his wife, Sarah, to whom he gives a third of his moveables to be her own forever, a third of his lands during her life, and entrusts to her the tuition and care of his daughter Sarah and allows her the use of both sons' portions for five years. Thomas remembered his first wife; he gives to his eldest daughter Hester 'a looking glass that was my first wife's.' To each daughter he gives one hundred and fifty pounds out of his moveable estate, so that he was a man of substance. He was concerned for the rearing of his children, left so early without a father's care, and entrusts the tuition and care 'of my loving son Thaddeus to my honored father and mother Banks,' that is, to Benjamin and Ruth. His widow and his brothers, Benjamin and Gershom, are executors. The witnesses are John Goodsell the pastor; Joseph Rowland; and Gershom Thorp. His widow married Samuel Odell, 19 September, 1751."

Notes for David Bradley:
[638441.FTW]

SOURCE: Powers - Banks Ancestry by Wm. H. Powers, 1921

"David Bradley married in 1731 Damaris Davis. He and his sons were carpenters. To him was awarded the building of the new meeting-house, erected in accordance with a vote of 4 February, 1760. Raising the funds was accomplished by a levy of ninepence on the pound in 1760, sixpence in 1761, and ten pence in 1762. Toward the end of the year 1761 the pews were laid out by a committee with the assistance of David Bradley, 'joiner,' the detailed report of which is extant. The highest price paid was twenty seven pounds by Joseph Bradley, Jr.; there were so many Joseph Bradleys that he cannot be certainly identified, but he was probably a brother of David. The lowest sum was fourteen pounds paid by Gershom Banks.The sum of David Bradley was 24 pounds. Out of twenty-six pews seven were bought by Bradleys, five by Bankses.
The building was a matter of great pride and stood until it was pulled down in 1845. Its lofty steeple in particular made it a land and sea-mark. On the floor above the belfry was an outside platform for observation purposes. Barber, writing in 1836, says: 'No other spot in Connecticut can show such a commanding, extensive, and beautiful prospect. Seventeen churches can be seen ... Five lighthouses are also seen.'
Samuel Bradley, probably the elder, a cousin of David's, gave a beautiful silver tankard to the church, still in use; the date is 1768. Samuel died in 1772 and David died 13 May, 1772. The inventory of his estate is 125 pounds.
A word more regarding the church in Greenfield. Its most famous pastor was Timothy Dwight, later president of Yale. His pastorate covered twelve years, 1783 to 1795.

SOURCE: Power-Banks Ancestry by William H. Powers

" The family appears to have lived in the northwest portion of Fairfield. At any rate, when the church was organized at Greenfield Hill, Benjamin Banks is first named among the founders. ...Benjamin's prominence in the parish continued apparently until his death. In 1743, when pews were assigned in the meeting-house, which had been begun in 1726, according to the rates paid, the name of Benjamin Banks is second on the list. Joseph Banks also was early of the Greenfield church, he and his family inclining more to the spiritual side; furnishing from time to time a deacon. Benjamin's children were obviously started in their spiritual life in the old parish. But they were not perhaps a devout family. At least Benjamin, Thomas, and Gershom, the eldest sons, were not baptized until 7 February, 1714, several years after the birth of the youngest of them. On the same day their mother Ruth renewed the covenant. Was it then an occasion of revival, forerunner of the great awakening? So far as can be learned Benjamin took no part in public affairs beyond what he did toward establishing the Greenfield parish and in the erection of its church building. His descendants were numerous....Benjamin died 12 December, 1759, very old."

Notes for John Banks:
[638441.FTW]

SOURCE: Powers-Banks Ancestry by Wm H. Powers 1921

John was the first Banks in America. His english home is unknown. There were Bankses in Kent and also in the north counties. John was called a lawyer, he may have had legal training in England. In America he is first found in Windsor, where he was town clerk in 1643; in the same year also he was appointed "to size the weights and measures of Windsor." (Colonial Records, 13 April, 1643)
His first certain connection with Fairfield is in January, 1649, when he purchased property of Daniel Frost. He was also an early proprietor of Rye and was representative from Rye for the years 1670 to 1672. He was also connected with Wethersfield between 1643 and 1649. But he kept his home in Fairfield.
John Banks was a well-known figure; for on 29 May, 1654, he was the prosecuting attorney in the famous slander suit against Deputy- Governor Roger Ludlow. ...makes for spicy reading, even today... (A full report of this trial is transcribed in Schenck's History of Fairfield)
In spite of his position as a lawyer, his chief services appear to have been performed as surveyor. Perhaps the two qualifications made a happy combination in the settlement of boundary questions. He was representative to the General Court at Hartford from Fairfield in 1651,1661,1663--1666,1673,1675--1677,1679,1680,1682,1683; from Greenwich 1678; from Rye 1678, 1680. In October 10,1678, Lieut. John Banks is the Fairfield deputy. He was one of the military council in the year of King Philip's War, 1675. He was, in 1677, 1680, 1682, 1683 one of a committee to audit the report of the colonial treasurer; also in 1680 and 1682 to audit the accounts between the colony and Hartford. He was also frequently commissioner. In 1672, he was chosen attorney to defend Fairfield against certain claims made by Simon Couch relative to a land division.
In 1675, Banks was appointed one of a committee to run a boundary line between Connecticut and New York, from Mamoroneck to the Hudson. The greatest distinction probably came to John Banks through his services on the military commission of 1675. Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts were acting in close conjunction and Banks must have been in communication with all who were responsible for the direction of affairs. Serving with him were two others from Fairfield, Jehu Burr and Major Gold.
His services as surveyor were in almost constant demand. He is recorded as fixing the boundary between Fairfield and Stratford, between Stratford and Norwalk, between Hastings and Rye, between Stamford and Greenwich, between Fairfield and Norwalk, between Derby, Woodbury, and other towns; in short the boundaries of all southwestern Connecticut and some portions of the New York boundary must have been fixed by him.
John's will is dated 12 January 1685; his death has been dated ten days later. First wife and children are listed with spouses. Second wife was Mary Sherwood (widow of Thomas Sherwood maiden name unknown). More than likely John had no children by this second marriage, though there is no conclusive evidence. John's three sons were the executors. The estate was large, said to have been the largest in land in the town of Fairfield. Among other chattels (moveable property) are mentioned two Indian boys and a negro woman.

Notes for Richard Lyon:
[638441.FTW]

SOURCE: Power-Banks Ancestry by William H. Powers

"The family seems to have originated in Brabant. For faithful service on the family was granted lands in Petshire, Scotland, in 1091, to which he gave the name Glen Lyon.
Richard Lyon settled in Fairfield, Connecticut. According to a tradition he was the youngest of three brothers, who came to New England probably about 1648 and located first in Fairfield County, Connecticut. The earliest item relating to him is found in the Colonial Records of Connecticut, i, p. 183, where we read in the procedings of a 'perticular Courte' in Hartford, 16 May, 1649, 'Nehemiah Olmstead Pit contra Richard Lyon defendt in an action of the case to the damage of 12 pounds.'
Richard must have been born early in the century. He may have been married more than once; his widow was Margaret. Richard was commissioner in 1669. All of his children were probably born in Fairfield, Connecticut.
There were in Fairfield two Lyons, probably brothers, Richard and Thomas, both well-to-do landholders. Richard was probably the elder. The Lyons were known in Dorchester, Roxbury, and Salem as early as 1635. Richard bought a house and lot of two acres in Fairfield in January, 1654, though he was there as early as 1649. He was made a freeman in 1664. In 1673, is recorded another land purchase. His will is dated 12 April, 1678, about which time he probably died. The will was probated 17 October, 1678, is almost the only source of information about his family. "

Richard lists all this children in his will and calls Elizabeth "Betty" in his will. Researchers believe all children listed in will were the the children of Richard and Margaret Lyon. Nothing was found in records to prove otherwise.

SOURCE: The Lyon Memorial by S. E. Lyon 1907

" Henry, Thomas and Richard Lyon were three brothers that landed in New Haven. As there lived John Lyne of Badby, Northamptonshire, England, a supposed kinsman, who had come in 1638, with Eaton and Hopkins, as directors and John Davenport, as spiritual guide, to plant an independent colony on the Connecticut coast."

In the book Lyon Memorial, it states that "Henry, Thomas and Richard Lyon (three brothers), Lyons of Glen Lyon in Perthshire, soldiers in Cromwell's army, were on guard before the Banqueting House at Whitehall on January 30, 1648 (9), and they witnessed the execution of Charles I. A tremendous reaction followed the regicide, and many a Puritan and Covenanter patriot of the insurgent army dissappeared from London.
"The three Lyon brothers took advantage of a national privilege. They had kinsmen in Middlesex and Norfolk counties who may have kept them in concealment pending a departure of a ship for the Colonies." William H. Powers author of Power-Banks Ancestry disagrees with this statement and finds it "improbable" and further stating that the dates are against it. In checking the historical facts on Oliver Cromwell, he brought Charles I to trial and had him executed in 1649. According to historical records of New England, Richard Lyon was in this country some time before 30 January, 1649. England's First Civil War started in 1642 and ended in 1645 but then resumed again in 1648.

SOURCE: The Taintor Family by Charles M. Taintor, Greenfield, Massachusetts, 1847

Author states that Charles came from Wales, an exile for religious reasons. There was in this country a Joseph Taintor at Watertown, whose relationship to Charles is uncertain. Charles was in 1643 a deputy to the General Court from Wethersfield, and again in 1646, and was "frequently in office." He was said to have been deprived of a large estate in Wales. Charles was a man of some property in the New World, being engaged in commerce, in foreign voyages.

"The first wife of the first John Banks was a daughter of Charles Taintor. The dates of birth of John Banks' children are unknown, but from their marriages, it is pretty clear that they were born before 1658. In that year, John Banks calls Charles Taintor 'father Taintor'. "

Prof. Wm. Tyler of Amherst is quoted as saying that in 1692 a Thomas Taintor was commissioner for Wiltshire and also in other years.

SOURCE: Probate Court at Fairfield, CT recorded in the Taintor Genealogy.

Oct. 20, 1658. This court orders that the Inventory that John Banks hath put into Court, concerning that estate his father Taintor hath left in Fairfield, shall be recorded; and Thomas Staples is desired to take care of it, until either his heir, executor, or administrator demand it. And it shall be delivered them provided they give in sufficient security that the estate shall be forthcoming, to be at the next Court (that shall follow after such delivery) of this jurisdiction. Pr. me, Wm. Hill, Secretary.

According to the Taintor Genealogy: Charles Tainor, who was a merchant sailor, had been lost at sea with Mr. Jagger in October, 1654. His lands were sold in 1656; hence this inventory must have been of personal property. The name of John Bank's wife does not appear only states "daughter of Charles Taintor."

SOURCE: Powers-Banks Ancestry by William H. Powers

Regarding Charles M. Taintor's children: " His son Charles went to Virginia. Michael, who left sons and daughters, was master of a yacht trading to Virginia in 1653. He settled in Branford where he was prominent. (First daughter was already married to John Banks so only John was mentioned) The daughter Mary, Marie, who probably lived with her brother, married in Branford, November, 1662, Thomas, son of the Rev. Abraham Pierson. A son of the Rev. Abraham and brother of Thomas, a second Rev. Abraham, was one of the ten clerical founders of Yale and in 1701 its first president. Father and son wielded a commanding influence throughout the colony."

Simon Hoyt, son of John and Ruth, was born in Dorchester England (Upway is about 10 miles from Dorchester) Jan. 20 1589 and died in Stamford, CT on Sept. 1, 1657 (town records). in 1628, with his brother-in-law Nicholas Stowers and the Spragues also of Upway, he came to America in the ship "Abigail" with Gov. John Endicott, arriving at Salem, MA Sept. 6, 1628. In the summer of 1629, he went the Charlestown as one of its first settlers but in 1630 he was at Dorchester, MA, his name appearing on the Dorchester records as Simon Hoit. He left there between Feb. 10 and April 17, 1635 for Situate, MA. Hinman in his "Catalogue" puts him at Windsor, CT in 1639 where in February 1640 he was granted eighty acres of land on the west bank on the Connecticut River. Removing to Fairfield Co., CT he purchased from John Green a home lost of three acres on March 6, 1649. He later purchased five more acres, but he was in Stamford, CT before his death and the inventory of his estate was taken there.

Simon Hoyt lived in Dorchester and Scituate, Mass. Emigrated 1630 to Windsor, Fairfield, Stamford, CT.

(Regarding Mark Hoyt decendant of Simon and Susanna Smith Hoyt) "He descends from a very old family, which traces its ancestry through the Somerset branch in England, as far back as Thomas Hoyett of 'Sevington Marye,' or Seavington, St. Mary, in Somerset, whose will is dated Nov. 10, 1576. There are evidences that the English family, in turn, derived its descent from a German duke, Von Hoyte, of Westphalia, referred to in Weigel's 'Book on German Arms,' printed in 1696. The founder of the family in America was Simeon Hoyt, one of the first settlers of Charlestown, Mass., in 1628. The emigrant changed his home to Dorchester in 1630, and in 1634 or 1635 to Scituate, removing in 1636 to Windsor, Conn., where he located permanently. There, he became a prominent man in the church and community and a large landholder. His sixth son, Samuel, born in 1643 (mother Susanna Smith), removed to Stamford, Conn. Inheriting the ability of his father, he became a man of high standing in Stamford, and was a Deputy at eleven sessions of the General Assembly, and fourteen years a Selectman of the town. For his services as a soldier in the colonial wars, he received large grants of land.

PERSONAL COMMENT:

There seems to be a lot of disagreement on this John Lyon regarding information of his two wives and children. The LDS Ancestral has two or three different versions and so does entries on the Family Tree Maker. I believe "The Complete Peerage" Vol. V. pg 658 is the most accurate regarding death of John Lyon Lord Glamis the 7th and information on his wife (only one listed) Janet Keith and children. I have included his first wife Joan (last name unknown) because of the information from LDS and FTM. At this point and time, I feel this needs more research to determine the correct descendancy.

Notes for Princess Marjorie Bruce:
[638441.FTW]

SOURCE: Robert The Bruce King of Scots by Ronald McNair Scott, pg. 177.

"His daughter Marjorie was expecting a child in the spring. This was a matter of some moment as his own wife Queen Elizabeth had not conceived since her return from England. On 2 March 1316, when near her time, Princess Marjorie was thrown from her horse and killed. The surgeons who were sent for, conscious of the succession, at once cut upen her abdomen and delivered a son from her dead body. Crippled throughout his life from the injury of his birth, the boy, fifty-four years later, became King of Scots as Robert II, the first of the royal line of Stewarts."

" ....and in 1316, when heavily pregnant, fell from her horse ...and died. She may have been nineteen or twenty.
When she was given in mariage to Walter Stewart she was King Robert's only legitimate child, and the question of who should succeed, if her father died in battle, count not be deferred. In that hazardous year, though a major battle had been won, the outcome of the war was still in doubt, and Marjorie was not declared heir-apparent but only heir- eventual. Should King Robert, reunited with his second wife after her eight years' imprisonment, beget a male child, the succession would be vested in him. If Robert died without a male heir, the crown would pass to his vigorous but reckless brother Edward: that was decided with Marjorie's consent, at a parliament sitting in Ayr. Then Edward Bruce went off to venture for the crown of Ireland, which a minor king of Tyrone had offered him, and got no reward but death for his audacity.
Marjorie was dead, but the infant Robert had survived. A parliament at Scone declared him heir to the throne should King Robert die and leave no son, the infant's guardian to be one of those paladins of the war, Randolph, Earl of Moray, or Sir James Douglas. "
