1 "Hugh Evans, of Gwynedd, son of Robert, d. 1734, m. 8th mo. 23, 1719, Margaret Roberts, dau. of Edward. He received, in 1719, from his father, a deed for 275 acres of land, in the north-eastern part of Robert's original tract - the part next to the meeting house. He lived probably at his father's house (belonging in 1884 to Silas White) and in his will (dated 2 May, 1734, probabed Oct. 1, same year) makes provisionfor his parents living there. He leaves to his son Robert, the west side of his farm, "with the buildings and improvements; extending eastward to a fence about 20 perches westward of the Great Road," and to his son Jesse the remainder of the farm, eastward of this fence. He names his sons Hugh, jr., and Edward and daughters Anne, Sarah and Mary. He appoints his wife executrix, and names as trustees for his minor children, his brother-in-law, Robert Roberts, his cousins, Evan Evans, Owen Evans, John Evans, and Thomas Evans; and John Jones. Margaret, his widow, m. 1747, Robert Jones of Merion." Family: F7832

4 "No known children of Sarah Boone & Jacob Stover," explains Spraker, "Sarah married Jacob Stover 15 Mar 1715, as recorded in Christ Church, Philadelphia. … possible that she died quite young, and her descendants, if any, are unknown. While she was the first in the family to settle in in the Oley township, she evidently did not affiliate with the Friends Meeting there, as no data concerning her appears in Quaker records. She was no doubt absorbed by the German element into which she married … In 1738 a wife Margaret (Stover) signed a deed for land sold by Jacob to another person, so Margaret was probably a second wife." (Some researchers believe there were children of this marriage, or at least of Stover's second marriage. Proof sources here would be welcomed.) Family: F4209

Although non-Quakers could have been present and witnessed the ceremony, it is unlikely, at that early date, to have had non-Quakers in attendance. The Friends were a persecuted group, and to associate with them would probably have caused them to be suspect. Ann's father, Thomas, and her brother, John, were there and signed the certificate as witnesses. Family: F1228

39 Alexander P. Hussey was remarried September 17, 1862 to Makanoe Kaaikaula Kalei Kauwilaha, according to Hawaii Marriage Book 28, page 19. The marriage was also recorded in Hawaii Marriage Book 78, page 119. The groom was then shown as a resident of North Kohala, Hawaii. The bride was of Hawaiian royalty, a daughter of Nihowehilani and Naweluokekikipaa, according to Beatrice Mileka Hussey Kailiponi. She was born in Kohala about 1838. At age five she was betrothed to the son of a Hawaiian king, but her father objected to the contracted marriage and sent her to the jungle in hiding under the care of an older brother. The brother built a temple for her in the jungle and surrounded it with a stone wall 15 feet high with only a narrow passageway for an entry. He stationed himself above the entryway and killed at least one of the king's soldiers who were searching for Makanoe by lassoing him and hanging him with the noose. Later Makanoe was placed in a school operated by the church mission for her protection. She remained in the school until Alexander P. Hussey made his proposal of marriage. Alexander P. Hussey became a master carpenter in North Kohala District and died there April 9, 1896. He was buried at Nuilii, Hawaii on the northwestern extremity of the island. His wife died there also March 29, 1916. Family: F10036

following story:

1859--Golden Wedding--1909

Thursday of last week witnessed a very pleasant gathering at the home of Stephen and Elizabeth Clendenon, the occasion being the 50th anniversary of their marriage. They were married March 25th, 1859, in Belmont County, Ohio. They moved to Keokuk County in 1864, settling near Coal Creek, where they have since resided. Of the ten children, eight of whom are living, six were present. These were Louisa Wood of Sanborn, Mr. and Mrs I. W. Clendenon of Oskaloosa, Mrs. L. R. Green of Union, Mr. and Mrs. G. D. Pim and Misses Hannah and Lydia Clendenon of What Cheer. The absent ones, Mrs. S. H. Mott of Mankato, Minn., and Smith Clendenon of Lakonta, were each represented by a daughter, Miss Eleanor Mott and Miss Fae Clendenon. Mr. and Mrs. A. Branson of Thornburg, were also present, Mr. Branson being the only surviving brother of the bride of fifty years ago. Her only sister, Mary J. Steer, who lives in Ohio, and who celebrated her own Golden wedding two years ago, though not able to be present in person, sent a written message, and the beautiful lines which appear below. A very pleasant feature of the day, was the letters and greetings from distant friends and realtives which came from may states east and west. Among other gifts was a box of orange blossoms from California. It was a good day, and it would take more than the rough winds and muddy roads of a blustering March day to mar the happiness of such and occasion.

41 Benajah Binford (1790-1858) was born in 1790 in North Carolina. He was a son of James and Hannah (Crew) Binford. He married Judith Binford, his first cousin and a daughter of John and Martha Binford, in 1811. For marrying his first cousin, he was disowned by Jack Swamp Monthly Meeting, but he was readmitted to membership the same year.
