Conrad Handlespiker (M)
b. between 1776 and 1778, d. 20 August 1868
Pop-up Pedigree

     Conrad Handlespiker If birthplace of NYC is correct, could have been born in Dutch Harlem, as his father was a tailor there, for the Provincial Tailors, while assigned to the 4th New Jersey Volunteers, in 1778. That also assumes the his birthdate is orrect. Apparently, since Cunrad and Catherina had their 'sin' in about 1770, then it would have to have been before he joined the NJV, and before he had Conrad (Jr.) It seems, by every new record I get to add, that Conrad was quite prolific (as of 28Feb97, I show 16 children!)

NOTES: It seems, with each addtional child added, that this man was quite prolific, but have received some data which may indicate more than just the two Conrads! This one was, no doubt, born about 1776/1778, and there was one who died in Digby in 1868, but I just received from Katy Boudreau (GANS) some Digby Deaths information (5 APR 97). In it, it has a Conrad Handspiker died 1868 aged 70, which would put the birthdate at 1798, twenty years after Conrad Jr., explainind a few of the later births??? Yet to see! One theory is that the '70' for age, should read '90' and was misinterpreted handwriting. Again, yet to see. Would surely match the 1778 date of birth. Another Conrad to consider would have have been the son of John who married in New Jersey in 1808. However, I would hope children of age 10 weren't marrying, even back then! He was born between 1776 and 1778 at New York City, New York, USA. He was the son of Coenradt (Enoch) Handlespiker and Anna _____. Conrad Handlespiker was baptized in 1791. He married Jane Vantassel, daughter of Abraham Van Tassel and Mrs. Van Tassel, on 25 December 1809 at Trinity Anglican Church, Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada. Conrad Handlespiker died on 20 August 1868.

Jane Vantassel (F)
b. 26 June 1777, d. 19 December 1865
Pop-up Pedigree

     Her married name was Handlespiker. Jane Vantassel NOTE: Due to high 'amount' of children, some may be listed twice, due to nicknames. Some may actually belong to a different family. There is much to be sorted out, especially in the first two to three generations from Mr. Henselbekker on down to the split of the 'brothers' in the late 1700's. Some of the children listed may be crossovers from the William and Leah VanTassel family, or, from William son of Wilhelm. Much to be sorted out, but, I hope I've at least accounted for MOST of those living at the time. She was born on 26 June 1777 at New York City, New York, USA. She was the daughter of Abraham Van Tassel and Mrs. Van Tassel. Jane Vantassel married Conrad Handlespiker, son of Coenradt (Enoch) Handlespiker and Anna _____, on 25 December 1809 at Trinity Anglican Church, Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Peter M. (Ham) Hamm (M)
b. circa 1801, d. April 1893
Pop-up Pedigree

     Peter M. (Ham) Hamm Information on Peter, Mary, children and ancestors confirmed or added to by Lois Jenkins, a Clements Township researcher.

Notes for Peter Hamm b. 1801:
He appears in the 1838 census for Clements Township, living in Deep Brook, with one female over 14 (wife), one male under 6, one female under 6, and one female between 6 & 14 in his household. He was listed as a labourer. His children Lavinia, Rebecca & William were baptized 23 Nov 1846 (Clements). His burial record gives his age at death as 92, living in Digby (County??) at the time of his death.

Notes for Peter's wife Mary:
She is probably the Mary Ann Hamm of Bear River who was buried at St. Edward's Anglican Cemetery 25 Sep 1890, age 83.

Children of Peter & Mary/Margaret:
1. Lavinia, bur 28 Nov 1846 age 13 (Clements)
2. Rebecca
3. William, bur 15 Jan 1857 age 20 (Clements)

This Peter, is likely the SON of a Peter Hamm who is listed in Admiral Digby Museum (ADM) family files as being born in Germany (@1739), and came to Nova Scotia, from New York. Married 09-Sep-1794 to Elizabeth 'Bessie' Baker, d/o Samuel Baker and Same record shows them having a son named Samuel. Likely same Peter that died before 1800, the son of Joseph & Christiana Hamm. Also, that Peter (Sr.) came from New York, in 1783. The elder Peter and 'Bessie' also had a daughter, Elizabeth. 'Bessie' and the elder Peter are known to be the grandparents of Capt. Elias Rawding, who was warden for Annapolis, Nova Scotia. Two of their granddaughters also married Rawdings. The Rawding connections can be found in 'Rawding History' by Mrs. Winifred T. Morgan.

Peter (the elder) is also the one listed in the Muster Roll at Bear River, 11/12 June 1784, as follows:

Hulme (or Ham), Peter # in family=1 Description=Waldeck Service Settled In=Bear River

Only Hulme I seem to find in Digby area, afterwards is a James William Hulme, born 28-Jun-1824, bapt. 7-May-1827 at Trinity Parish, son of James and Phebe Hulme, of Digby.

Peter and Polly are found in the 1881 Canada Census for Clementsport, Annapolis, Nova Scotia, as follows:

Peter M HAMM M Male German 80 Nova Scotia Farmer Baptist
Mary HAMM M Female German 73 Nova Scotia Baptist

There have been other researchers who indicated that Polly was the nickname of Mary Hamm. So, if such is the case, the ages surely work as when Rebecca was born, her father would have been around 33 and mother around 26. Also, unless Peter and Polly weren't in Nova Scotia in 1881, this is the ONLY possible match for Rebecca's parents. He was born circa 1801 at Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada. He was the son of Peter (Hulme\Ham) Hamm and Elizabeth 'Bessie' Baker. Peter M. (Ham) Hamm was baptized on 11 October 1801. He married Mary Ann 'Polly' Peck, daughter of Jacob Peck and Mrs. Peck, on 25 August 1831 at St. Luke's Church, Clements, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada. Peter M. (Ham) Hamm died in April 1893 at Digby County, Nova Scotia, Canada. He was buried on 10 April 1893 at Clements, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Mary Ann 'Polly' Peck (F)
b. circa 1806, d. September 1890
Pop-up Pedigree

     Her married name was Hamm. Mary Ann 'Polly' Peck According to Lois Jenkins, most likely father for Mary 'Polly' Peck (possibly Mary Ann, or Mary Margaret, or Mary Ann Margaret) would be Jacob Peck. Baptized in 1806 by a Church of England minister named Viet(s). Likely the Rev. Roger Viets, who baptized many in Digby. She was born circa 1806 at Nova Scotia, Canada. She was the daughter of Jacob Peck and Mrs. Peck. Mary Ann 'Polly' Peck was baptized circa 1807 at Digby County, Nova Scotia, Canada. She married Peter M. (Ham) Hamm, son of Peter (Hulme\Ham) Hamm and Elizabeth 'Bessie' Baker, on 25 August 1831 at St. Luke's Church, Clements, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada. Mary Ann 'Polly' Peck died in September 1890 at Bear River, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada.

James Russell Purdy (M)
b. circa 1799, d. 8 October 1858
Pop-up Pedigree

     James Russell Purdy was buried at Bear River Baptist Cemetery, Digby County, Nova Scotia, Canada. He Some source show James married a Louisa Potter. Some of THOSE sources also claim she was the mother of Josiah Anthony Purdy. They also include Henry Albert Purdy (which might be true, if James Russell married twice). I've not seen any documents leading me to believe that Louisa was Josiah's mother.

In 1838 Digby County census, James R Purdy is listed as a yeoman living in Hillsburgh Township, listed as:

1 - # males under six
1 - # females under six
2 - # males 6-14
1 - # females 6-14
0 - # males above 14
1 - # females above 14
7 - Total in family (which includes head of family not listed in the breakout, above. He was born circa 1799 at Clements, Annapolis, Nova Scotia, Canada. He was the son of Anthony Purdy and Frances Russell. James Russell Purdy married Louisa Potter before 1826. James Russell Purdy married Eliza Ann Gilliat, daughter of John Gilliatt and Susan (Sukey) Potter, in 1836 at Digby, Digby County, Nova Scotia, Canada. James Russell Purdy married Eunice Morse after 1841. James Russell Purdy died on 8 October 1858 at Hillsburgh, Digby County, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Eliza Ann Gilliat (F)
b. between 1805 and 1810, d. 15 May 1851
Pop-up Pedigree

     Her married name was Purdy. Eliza Ann Gilliat Second of three wives for James. Eliza's date of birth is confused by so many researchers choosing the 'abt or circa' dates of 1805 to 1810. Apparently, some indicate a baptismal date of 1808, which would fit with a birth date before then. Surely she was the daughter of John and Susan/Susannah. She was born between 1805 and 1810 at Clements, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada. She was the daughter of John Gilliatt and Susan (Sukey) Potter. Eliza Ann Gilliat married James Russell Purdy, son of Anthony Purdy and Frances Russell, in 1836 at Digby, Digby County, Nova Scotia, Canada. Eliza Ann Gilliat died on 15 May 1851 at Nova Scotia, Canada.

     Seth Brown Likely died between 1860 and 1880. He was naturalized; Mechanic (1838). He was born on 15 February 1807 at Granville, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada. He was the son of George Brown and Ann Clark. Seth Brown married Jane Elizabeth Snow, daughter of Sylvanus Snow and Mary Lent, in 1838 at Granville, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Jane Elizabeth Snow (F)
b. 13 November 1816, d. after 1881
Pop-up Pedigree

     Her married name was Brown. Jane Elizabeth Snow NOTE: Jane's ancestry is culled from several different sources and many lines are quite possible. The most LIKELY is listed, with Sylvanus as her father and the subsequent ancestral line of his. However, there are also Benjamin Snows who have been previously listed as Jane's father. Until I can find ABSOLUTE proof that Jane's father is anyone other than Sylvanus, his line will remain in place in this database.

SPECIAL NOTE: There may be two possible Sylvanus Snows in the line, however there is as much chance as that he married twice and was just older than usual, when he and Mary had Jane.

In 1881 Canada Census, Jane was living, aged 63, as a widow, with her daugher Mary Dunn in Bridgetown, Annapolis, Nova Scotia.

Many possibilities on Snow ancestry, but, based on several more complete sources, believe what is listed is correct for Jane Elizabeth Snow. There was a time when it was believed she was part of the Benjamin Snow line, but that Benjamin did not remain in Nova Scotia, and, after a short stay in New Brunswick, seems to have returned to the 'colonies'. Though there is a chance there was yet another Jane Elizabeth Snow, who WAS descended from Benjamin, that woman was not the same as this woman, and, it appears, MAY have died never having married. She was born on 13 November 1816 at Nova Scotia, Canada. She was the daughter of Sylvanus Snow and Mary Lent. Jane Elizabeth Snow married Seth Brown, son of George Brown and Ann Clark, in 1838 at Granville, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada. Jane Elizabeth Snow died after 1881.

b. 4 June 1810, d. 21 August 1903
Pop-up Pedigree

     Martha Strong was buried at Kibling Cemetery, Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA. Her married name was Chamberlin. She Also listed as born in Lebanon or Plainfield, New Hampshire, depending on source. In many sources she is listed as marrying Asahel Chamberlin, son of Amasa Chamberlin and Molly Brisco. However, further research indicates that is VERY unlikely, but better chance that she married Asahel, SON of Asahel Chamberlin and Mary Preston, b. @1812. His father Asahel being the one born to Amasa in 1784. This 'secondary' link may not have been known of at the time the first links were made and/or assumed.

It is most likely this Martha who appears as Martha Chamberlin, widow, age 70, as housekeeper in the home of Frank and Millie Kendall in 1880 US Census for Strafford, Orange County, Vermont. She was born on 4 June 1810 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA. She was the daughter of Elisha Strong and Hannah Moore. Martha Strong married Asahel Chamberlin, son of Amasa Chamberlin and Molly Briscoe, on 6 April 1838 at Sharon, Vermont, USA. Martha Strong died on 21 August 1903 at age 93.

Samuel M. Kimball (M)
b. March 1815, d. 13 October 1856
Pop-up Pedigree

     Samuel M. Kimball was naturalized; Laborer. He There are two markers in two separate cemeteries for Samuel, near as I can tell. The Brown Cemetery on Burpee Hill in N. Grantham has a white stone, complete with the 13-Oct-1856 date of death. The stone in Hilldale is much newer (likely made for Nancy's burial. WAS Samuel initially buried in Brown and then his remains removed to Hilldale at a later date? Is he still buried in Brown, and the marker merely serving as a memorial? It is interesting to note that Nancy would have been buried with Samuel as opposed to Mr. Fisher, but as Samuel was the father of her children, perhaps it makes sense.

If I could prove that the 'M' in Samuel's name stood for Micah, we could make a very tight connection to the Andover/Wilmot Kimballs (Deacon Samuel, et al). If it stood for Merrill, then we can argue the Groton, NH family.

Depending on which record sourced, Samuel was born in Canaan, Enfield, Orange, NH, or Northfield, VT. Guess even his kids didn't know for certain. Perhaps even Samuel wasn't sure.

Surely, when he married Nancy in 1835, he was residing in Canaan, and she in Enfield, and their marriage was registered in Canaan.

Note: no Kimballs are listed in the 1840 census in Grantham, New Hampshire. 1850 and the 1860/70 census were used to figure dates on this family and the Ira Kimball family. In the Canaan, New Hampshire town history, there is listed a Samuel Kimball who married a Nancy Whittaker of Enfield on 31-oct-1835. According to Mrs. Royal, Samuel had three wives and came from the Enfield/Canaan area. Some other research on the Kimballs of Grafton County (from which the directory of 1885/6 came): 'Robert Kimball (b. 16-dec-1786), son of Joseph Kimball of Preston, Connecticut, who settled in Plainfield, New Hampshire in 1765. In 1810, Robert settled in Morristown, Vermont, enrolled in the Vermont militia, and returned to Plainfield about 1819. In 1835, moved to Lebanon. He had two children w/ wife fanny Willis of Wolcott, Vermont: Mary Elizabeth and Robert Byron. It is my assumption, and I know what assuming does, that Robert may have been an uncle to Samuel, and that Joseph Kimball of Preston, Connecticut was his grandfather. The locations make a lot of sense, and the move to Vermont and back make sense, as well. But, unfortunately, until proven, it is just that, an assumption. Another bit of information from Mr. McNamara is on Eliphalet Kimball. In the history of Cornish, New Hampshire, he is listed as also being of Plainfield and Morristown, Vermont, and he had a son Samuel, this son may have been same as Samuel born about 1815, but may also have been his father, this line needs to really be tightened up. Some further census research indicates a possibility that Samuel was of Northfield, Vermont in 1840 with children of the appropriate age it lists Samuel and the total of males/females at given ages, to include head of household: males under 5=2, 20-30=2, females under 5=1, 15-20=1, 20-30=1, with two in the household listed as employed.
Upon searching for gravestone that Mrs. Royal had told me about, it was found in what is now Brown Cemetery in North Grantham, and the name is Samuel M. Kimball, d. 13-Oct-1856 aged 41y and 7m or 11y and 7m, if 41 then that still jives with 1815 year of birth. Must check this out w/ town hall. Some input from the Kimball Association in July of 1993, indicate a Muriel Cole of West Canaan, New Hampshire is descended from Horace and Flora Kimball and that someone has a notion the Samuel was the son of Asa M. Kimball and Miriam Meacham.... This is still just a theory.

Following is 1850 Census Index information:

KIMBALL, SAMUEL
State: NH Year: 1850
County: Sullivan County Record Type: Federal Population Schedule
Township: Grantham Page: 120
Database: NH 1850 Federal Census Index

1850 Census for Grantham, Sullivan Co, NH:

KIMBALL:

Ira, 14, m, NH
James, 12, m, NH
Adeline, 9, f, VT
Lynds, 8, m, NH,
William, 4, m, NH
Horace, 2, m, NH

In 1850, Samuel owned 1 cow and 8 sheep, and his land was worth $500.

Other dates/places offered by Family Records of Susan Malcolm SLMalcolm@aol.net for Samuel and family.

Family stories indicate that Seth Glenn West was supposedly 1/32nd Native American, and that the Kimball line was the connection. Thoughts are that either Nancy Whitaker was a half-breed, or, that Samuel Kimball's father may have married a 'half-breed' and that is why little to nothing is known about Samuel's ancestry. With information found on the Whitaker side, my suspicion towards Samuel's father having married the 'Indian woman' are more likely true. That would also work out as 1/32nd for Seth West (and his siblings) as has always been the fraction quoted.

This helps to explain why the folks who seem to know about ALL the Kimball Family in New England have no information available on Samuel's parentage.

In the Purmont, NH cemetery where James T. Kimball (son) is buried, is also buried an Abigail Kimball, wife of Capt. Joseph Kimball, died 26-Sep-1840, aged 66 (putting her birthyear around 1774). COULD she have been Samuel's mother? Grandmother? I would surely assume some relation, though not yet provable. (Jul-2002)

More to follow on Joseph... it appears one born in 1775 or so in PLAINFIELD, may be a good candidate to be Abigail's husband... AND, possibly a candidate to be Samuel's father, making Abigail the possible 'half-breed' of family lore. That Joseph was son of Joseph of Preston, Connecticut, which brings some creedence to the previous theory of Samuel being THAT Joseph's grandson! (little bit of back patting going on)... (Late Jul-2002)

The IF ancestry. IF Samuel's father was Joseph, b. 1775, married to Abigail (possible half-breed), then the following ancestry of Joseph is taken from 'the Kimball book' and related sources:

Joseph Kimball b. 1775

This is how Karla Vince shows the connection from Samuel M. Kimball to Asa Kimball and Miriam Meacham (as of Fall 2003):

Name: Asa KIMBALL
Sex: M
Birth: 8 JUL 1787

Father: Daniel KIMBALL b: JUN 1763 in Warner, New Hampshire
Mother: Polly STEVENS b: 1768

Marriage 1 Miriam MEACHAM b: 14 JUN 1794 in Canaan, Grafton Co., New Hampshire
Married: 7 OCT 1810
Children
Samuel M. KIMBALL b: ABT. MAR 1815 in New Hampshire

Based on information from Jean Kimball and Muriel Cole, and comments from Karla, these are NOT the parents of our Samuel M. Kimball. Relationship was inferred, but not sourced. So, unless information uncovered in the future 'disconnects' Samuel M. from Wyman P. and Benjamin Franklin Kimball, it is believed to at least 80 percent, that he was also son of Samuel and Maria.

Samuel in 1840 Census for Northfield, Washington Co, VT, who's lines read:

2,0,0,0,2.... 1,0,0,1,1,0.......

This proves interesting...
2 boys 0-5 (Ira and James)
2 men 20-30 (Samuel M. and ??? - perhaps a brother? or servant?)
1 girl 0-5 (Adelaide? - a bit early, perhaps)
1 girl 15-20 (perhaps some familial relation? - perhaps a servant?)
1 woman 20-30 (Nancy)

It surely must be the right Samuel, though, given location on children's births in that timeframe. +NONE even in Sullivan Co, NH in 1840, and the 1850 has none in Northfield, VT... makes sense. He SHOULD Asa Kimball prove to be father, the following are some notes on possible Asa connections:

In 'History of Canaan, Chapter XVI', the following is said about Asa and Miriam:

'He had six sons and five daughters: Jeremiah, Joshua, who lived on Town Hill beyond his father’s house; Joseph, who married Sarah Basford; Andrew, who married Abigail Eastman; Elam, who married Polly Williams; and Thomas; Polly, who married William Bradbury and was the mother of Deacon Benjamin; Sarah, who married Amos Worthen; Phcebe, who married Ezekiel Wells; Miriam, who married Asa Kimball and was in want all her life; Betty, who married Moses Worthen.'

'in want all her life'... question is, does this mean she died without issue?

History of Canaan, also provides a marriage date for the two of 7-Oct-1810. It lists her b.d. as 14-Jun-1794.


In Vital Records of Enfield, NH -

Asa, b. 3-Jul-1787 to Daniel Kimball and Mary Stevens
marr: 1st - 7-Oct-1810 at Canaan to Miriam Meacham (b. 19-Jul-1794)
marr: 2nd - 9-Jul-1848 at Canaan to Rosamond Collins

Q: COULD the 'M' in Samuel M. Kimball b. 1815, stand for Meacham???

Q: Does that matter if the statemtent about Miriam in the History of Canaan really mean she died w/o issue? Since Asa remarried in 1848, there's no question if this Asa was Samuel's father, that Miriam was his mother, and not Rosamond.

Another Asa, b. 13-Oct-1794, d. 1871, m. 1819 to Hannah Little, he was a Col in the NH militia. THIS Asa had 7 children.

A Martha Jones, b. 3-Apr-1799 at Hillsborough (d/o Moses Jones - s/o Sgt Solomon Jones), also married an Asa Kimball and lived at Henniker.

There's an Asa Kimball listed in the 1830 US Census for Plainfield, Sullivan Co, NH, on page #293... need to see this source, as if Samuel was son of Asa, at age 15, he shOuld be listed. Image found and listed as having two males 20-30 and one male 50-60, one female 10-15, two 15-20 and one 20-30, and one, 50-60. This fits with possible Asa/Miriam, as both would be of that age. However, no males in the right age group, to indicate Samuel M. as a son of this couple... if indeed, it's even the right Asa. He was buried in ? At Hillsdale Cemetery, Grantham, New Hampshire, USA. He was born in March 1815 at Canaan, Grafton County, New Hampshire, USA. He was the son of Samuel **** Kimball and Maria ?. Samuel M. Kimball married Nancy M. (Whittier) Whitaker, daughter of Nell A. Whittaker and Elvira (Alvina) Carpenter, on 31 October 1835 at Canaan, New Hampshire, USA. Samuel M. Kimball was buried in 1856 at Brown Cemetery on Burpee Hill, North Grantham, New Hampshire, USA. He died on 13 October 1856 at Grantham, Sullivan County, New Hampshire, USA, at age 41.

     Her married name was Fisher. Her married name was Kimball. Nancy M. (Whittier) Whitaker Married, second, after Samuel's death, to a Mr. Fisher or Fischer and was known to son Elwin's children as 'Gramma Fisher/Fischer. Also seen in some records as Nancy Whittier (common variant/misspell of Whittaker/Whitaker.

Of particular interest is an entry in Enfield, NH VR, for Horace F., where it listed his mother's maiden name as FISHER, which indicates this record was entered well after the actual time of birth, and more likely the info was taken from a marriage record, where he happened to list his DOB and his mother's name, at the time of HIS marriage to either Amanda or Flora.

VERY Interesting note in Enfield NH Vital Records, as Nancy listed in birth of Horace F. as Nancy M. Fisher!!!
Listed as Nancy Whittier in record for Emma F. In fact, in two records of Horace, listed in one as Whittaker and the other as Fisher, for his first two marriages.

Samuel and Nancy were married by George Evans

     Margaret Clifford Possibly daughter of Benjamin Clifford and sister of William? This is only based on census locations for these two males, and if she truly WAS born in what is now Grantham. 1800, Benj. in Acworth, Cheshire Co, 1810, in New Grantham, Cheshire, Co, , in 1820, William now appears in Grantham, Cheshire Co, 1830, same William in Grantham, Sullivan Co, though, by 1840, no Benj OR Wm in Grantham area. As she was married in 1822 at Wilmot, and that could be due to her family location OR James', it's hard to be sure.

She appears as a widowed house keeper in 1870 Census for Croydon/Plainfield, NH, in the household of her 45 year-old son, Ezekiel, apparently still single. Reference: NHVR. Her married name was Stone. She was born circa 1801 at Grantham, New Hampshire, USA. She married James Stone, son of Ezekiel Stone and Esther ?, on 28 November 1822 at Wilmot, New Hampshire, USA.

Some of the captains were James Slocomb, Henry Fritz, John Brown, Alex Parks, James Parks, and Elias Woodworth.

Not sure where Henry Fritz fits... is it William Henry Fritz? Or, is it another Henry, of an earlier generation. Statement on Captains indicates they were sailing these vessels in the early 1800's.

Coenradt (Enoch) Handlespiker (M)
b. circa 1750?, d. between 24 August 1803 and 1809?
Pop-up Pedigree

     Coenradt (Enoch) Handlespiker married Anna _____ ABOUT 1770/86 at Mahwah, New Jersey, USA. Coenradt (Enoch) Handlespiker was christened at American Revolution (Loyalist). He was naturalized; Tailor. He 'Muster Roll of Disbanded Officers, Discharged and Disbanded Soldiers and Loyalists, Mustered at Digby, N.S. 29 May 1789' lists 'Handlespiker, conrad 1 man, 1 woman, 2 children abv 10, 1 child under 10, no servants, 5 total. and lists Conrad as 'D.S.' prob disch. soldier.

Below Conrad is listed 'David' (not sure if another Handlespike or just no name known?) 1 man, 1 woman, 1 child under 10, total 3, loyalist settled at Digby.

Actual date of discharge was sent from Mickey Pazurik to Dad,as 18-Jul-1784, 2nd Batt. NJ Volunteers. A Coonrad Hanselpacker was married to Elizabeth Hopkins/Smith, 1808, Bergen, NJ, USA

From same book and volume:
'Handelspike, Conrad, Town of Digby, Block U, No. 25, Botsford grant (2:105)'
and
'Handlespik, Conrac, Loyalist; drew boards Botsford grant (2:117)'

There were four men named Handlespiker: Coenradt, Wilhelm, Phillip and Johannes, who were all in the New Jersey Volunteers, and could have been brothers, or some other relation to each other. Another Hanselpacker, probably related is John, born 25-Jun-1773, and died 6-Oct-1845. He's in the LDS Ancestral File, and the only state of reference for those dates is New Jersey. That particular John was married to a Julia Balmain, born 1783 in New York. They had at least 11 children, including: Magdalene, Margaret, Phillip, William, Eleanor, John, Mary, Catherine, Julia, Ann, David N., and Matilda Jane, between 1800 and 1818. Our Coenradt and his 'brothers' were all members of the 4th Battalion of the New Jersey Volunteers. Mr. Todd Braisted, who heads the reenactment group for the New Jersey Volunteers (as of 1993) has sent me copies of the muster rolls, which I also made copies of at the New Jersey State Library, in Trenton. Apparently, Cunrad and Philip enlisted in the 4th at Staten Island, on 22 January, 1777. They joined into Captain Peter Ruttan's Company, under the Battalion Command of Lieutenant Colonel Abraham Van Buskirk. Many of the recruits came from the Ramapo Valley area, especially near Mahwah, New Jersey. Some of the common names in the 4th were: Wannamaker, Hemeon, Ramsey, Fox, Demerest and Ackerman. He also provided me another copy of the List of Disbanded Soldiers, Mustered out at Digby. Some of the names of note, on that list were
Abraham Van Tassel and several Purdys. Of the Purdys, Abraham was listed as a New York Volunteer, while Joseph, Daniel and Nathaniel were listed as loyalist from Pt. Matoon (wherever that is).
There is a reference made, in the History of Mahwah, New Jersey, to a Cunrad Henselbekker, in the 1770 minutes of the Consistory that reads as follows: 'Cunrad and Catharina Henselbekker fell in the heavy sin of the shame, in that they, through intercourse, had begotten a child. On this acount, they were summoned to appear before the church council, and after earnest representation, this public action regarding them... to which they gave an affirmative answer... and confess to the church and through... confession and prayer.... to make good the given offense, which they also promised to do. Thereupon, they were brought before the church the following Sunday, and after previous exhortation to obtain forgiveness and reconciliation for their great sin against God through the blood of Jesus Christ, they were again released.' At first I thought that this meant that Cunrad and Catharina were later husband and wife, but according to some Presbyterian records, which I have not seen, Wilhelm married Catherina, and Cunrad married Anna. This indicates, since both are named Henselbekker in the book,
that Cunrad conceived a child with his sister-in-law.
From what I can figure, the four men spread out geographically, as follows: Cunrad and Wilhelm went to Digby, Phillip went to Longreach, New Brunswick, and John seemingly left the NJV early, and may have denounced his loyalty, because it looks like he stayed in New Jersey after the war (probably in Bergen County). Other evidence indicates he may have joined Philip, later, in New Brunswick, but not sure WHICH John that would have been.. The name John, amongst the earlier records of this family, in Bergen, gets very confusing, as the oldest record would be of Hannes (John), and he MAY have been
the progenitor of the line in Bergen. This would make HIM (Hannes) the Mr. Henselbekker, who is listed as father of Conrad, William, Philip and John (and probably Michael).

Note: In 'Loyalists in Nova Scotia' by Gilroy, it lists Conrad Handlespike as being '(given) 350 acres of land in Digby-1784 and escheated in 1800.' For Wilhelm, it said he had 100 acres in Digby township in 1801. In Deeds to Digby Co. Index Vol 1 1785-1838 shows 'Handspiker Conrad and wife to Edward Thorpe/Thorne, Digby Neck 1797 Book 1B, p. 705.

Note: Some data on children was sent from Leland Harvie, mentioning notes made by Lois Kernihan, at the public archives some years ago. These dates on Katherina, Susanna, Anne and Mary, and the
burial date for Coenradt, are taken from the Digby Anglican Church records.

Hanselbekker info:
A Rachel Traphagen married a John Hanselbekker on 22Nov1795 at Kakiat inNew Jersey. Married by Rev. George G. Brinkerhoff. Brinkerhoff, licensed in 1788, was the Dominie at Kakiat/Kekeat) and Ramapo, from 1793 - 18??. In Pre-1790 NJ Census found three Traphagens:
Jonathan (Hackensack), Johannes (Hackensack) and David (Bedminster in Somerset County).
This John may be the fourth brother, but no way to prove it, yet.

Add Handselpiker as another variant. As of 6 Feb 97, in e-mail from Brian Middleton, there is no
mention of Conrad's parents at the Admiral Digby Museum in Digby, NS.

Received the Handspiker data, available at the Admiral Digby Museum, today, 26 Feb 1997, from
Charlotte Vardy. Has Conrad Sr. as 'Dutch' descent, 2nd NJV, middle name 'Enoch'. Will try to
incorporate as much data as possible, into this genealogy. The 4th Bn, NJV merged with other units, in 1781, and was renamed the 3rd, still under the command of Lt Col Van Buskirk. Not sure if Conrad and William were among the last of the NJV, who received their discharge on 10 October 1783, but if so, it is likely they departed from NYC to River Saint John, in that timeframe, with earlier individuals having done so in September of same year. My guess is they departed in September.

As of 15 April 1997, finding mixed data on land where Conrad settled. I have one source quoting the microfilm of the Botsford Papers as Block T, lot #25, and another quoting the NS Immigrants books which reference the Botsford Papers but say, Block U, lot #25. Wonder if a Block was part of a lot, instead of the other way around... more to check out!

To date (7 May 1997), have seen three names for the ship that may have transported Conrad and his family, from NYC to Nova Scotia, they are 'Alantha', 'Atlanta', and 'Esther'. Have YET to see a passenger list from any of these ships, but hope to get some kind of proof in the near future.

Some records indicate death date of August, vice June. He was born circa 1750? At Dutchess County, New York, USA?. He was the son of Mr. Henselbekker. Coenradt (Enoch) Handlespiker died between 24 August 1803 and 1809? At Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada. He was buried on 24 June 1809 at United Cemetery, Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Abraham Van Tassel (M)
b. 31 October 1745, d. March 1802
Pop-up Pedigree

     Abraham Van Tassel According to a book on loyalists, Abraham was of Croten Bridge, Westchester County, New York, USA, when he volunteered for service on 4-Jun-1779, he served until the peace without pay or clothing. Drove what cattle of his he could to the Army. Claim: House of his which was burned, and cattle. Memorial: 9-Feb-1786, Digby (Book on Loyalist Claims) Abraham was one of the Loyal Refugee Corps at King's Bridge, New York.

Abraham lived in NYC during the Revolution, and was a Loyalist. He moved his family to Canada after the war, settling with others in Digby, Nova Scotia, later living in 'Prisoner's Cove'. In 1801, he was granted, in a New Grant, 200 acres. Apparently, this land stayed in family hands until 1898, when a grandson of Abraham was living there. In one record, his daughter Jane, was listed as Jan, whether that was in error, and a simple mistake, or done on purpose, is not known to me at this time. But, in other records, it is plain that Conrad Handlespiker married Jane Vantassel, dau. of Abraham. There is another Abraham listed in the earlier genealogies of the VanTassel family, who had a dau. Jane, in 1782, but he was no Loyalist, It is interesting to note, however that he was closely associated with Mount Pleasant, in Westchester County, New York, and that makes one wonder how the name of Mount Pleasant came to Digby, since Abraham, the Loyalist, was one of its earliest 'inhabitants'. He was baptized on 31 October 1745 at Tarrytown, Westchester County, New York, USA. He was the son of Cornelius Van Tassel and Antie Williams. Abraham Van Tassel married Mrs. Van Tassel circa 1775 at New York City, New York, USA. Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Unknown GEDCOM tag: _MILT American Revolution (Loyalist) on 4 June 1779. Abraham Van Tassel died in March 1802 at Mount Pleasant, Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada, at age 56. He was buried on 11 March 1802 at Trinity Anglican Church, Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada.

     Sylvanus Snow was buried at Stoney Beach Cemetery, Granville, Annapolis, Nova Scotia, Canada. He was naturalized; SEE F5. He One of his wives named Mary, died 19-May-1814, in her 36th year. I might assume this to be whichever Mary was the first wife. She's buried with Jabez and Elizabeth, in the Stoney Beach Cemetery. Others have indicated a birth year of 1785 for Sylvanus who married Mary Clark. This MAY indicate, as suspected, two separate Sylvanus lines, but will wait for further confirmation/proof. We surely know that Sylvanus and Mary Clark had a son, Sylvanus, born 15-Jan-1804. He was born on 24 February 1765 at Eastham, Massachusetts, USA. He was the son of Jabez Snow and Elizabeth Doane. Sylvanus Snow married Mary Clark on 2 January 1801. Sylvanus Snow married Mary Lent, daughter of Abraham Adolph Lent and Eleanor Spurr, on 14 October 1814 at Granville, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Pop-up Pedigree

     Reference: HFWEST-1. Jeremiah West Some other source(s) list the marriage date for Jeremiah and Anna as 05-Mar-1813, which is more likely, as listed, the birth date of Jeremiah (s/o Jeremiah and Anna).

Problem I have with the date of death is that it would be the same as for Jeremiah West (listed as Jermiah) and his wife, Mary (no other indications of a 2nd marriage) found in the 1880 US Census, living in Ellington, Chautauqua, New York. He is listed, in 1880, as age 91, born VT, a retired farmer, with his father born VT and mother in CT, which DOES happen to 'fit.' IF this is, indeed, the same/right Jeremiah, then his wife, Mary in 1880, is listed as age 62, b. VT, fa: VT mo: MA.

IF Jeremiah, once husband to Anna Burroughs, and father of Jeremiah, Jr. is same as living in Ellington, NY in 1881, then the following would also hold true:

In 1883 schedule of pensioners for Chautauqua, NY, the following is listed:

22427 ... West, Jeremiah ... Ellington ... act of March 9, 1878 ... $8.00 ... Jun 1878

This indicated the 'cause for which pensioned' is the 'act of March 9, 1878'. Would be interesting to know which War that 'act' related to. He was born circa 1790 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA. He was the son of Daniel Gilman West and Amy (Anne) Pennock. Jeremiah West married Anna Burroughs, daughter of John Proctor Burroughs and Judith Parkhurst, on 5 May 1811 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA. Jeremiah West and Anna Burroughs were divorced on 29 September 1813 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA. Jeremiah West married Polly Morse circa 1814. Jeremiah West married Nancy Haskell circa 1856. Jeremiah West died on 15 August 1883 at Ellington Village, Chatauqua, New York, USA.

Whether Anna/Anne/Anny was daugther of Judith Parkhurst or Lydia Wright, I've still not completely figured out. Different sources list different mothers. She WAS, however, surely the daughter of John Proctor Burroughs. As of Oct-2002, I have serious doubts he had three wives, but seems others are more convinced.

b. 1788, d. 27 September 1841
Pop-up Pedigree

     John Wilcox Wilcox Genealogy shows John Wilcox b. @1797, but that seems QUITE a stretch if married in 1809. However, given that Esther wasn't born until 1825, perhaps that marriage date for John and Abigail is incorrect? Should John actually BE the one born @1797, his father, John Flavel Wilcox, and that ancestry are located within this database, should that prove correct. I just find it hard to believe he was married and having children by 1809, if he was only 12 or 13 years-old! The John Wilcox who was b. VT in 1797 actually married a woman named Saphrona. He WAS born in CT, but his Vermont connection was not in Orange county, but in Windham County! THEIR children were Eliza, Ellen, Gilbert, Laura, and Augustus. AND that John lived at least until 1860 census!

SURELY the 1830 and 1840 Census records BOTH indicate he was born between 1780 and 1790, and Abigail between 1790 and 1800...

1830 US Census for Brookfiled, VT:
John Wilcox was 40-50 in 1830 Abigakl was 30-40
Had one son, 15-20, daughters: 3 under 5, 2 5-10, 2 10-15, 2 15-20.

Sons: 1 5-10, 1 20-30 Daughters: 1 under 5, 2 5-10, 1 10-15, 1 15-20

The son listed as 5-10 MAY be the John D. in following records. Need to make absolutely sure, before placing his date within the actual database...

5-10 son in 1840 could be John D. Wilcox b. 1834, res. Brookfield in 1850, who 'removes' to Milford, IL by 1860, marries Catherine, b. @1834, has William F., @1853, John D, @1855, and Charles P., @1859.

Abigail Steele (F)
b. 18 June 1792, d. 1870
Pop-up Pedigree

     Her married name was Wilcox. Abigail Steele Fact that John D. Wilcox and family end up in Nashua, NH, agrees with 1860 US Census for Abigail (Steele) Wilcox, also residing there. That said, no reason NOT to believe that John D. b. 1834 is either son or grandson of John and Abigail.

Believe she was same listed in 1857 as having a house at 40 Palm Street in Nashua.

It also makes sense because her STEELE routes were in Weare, Hillsborough Co, NH. She was born on 18 June 1792 at Warren, Washington County, Vermont, USA. She was the daughter of James Steele and Anna Cram. Abigail Steele married John Wilcox, son of John Wilcox and Nabbie UNKNOWN, on 16 March 1809 at Warren, Washington County, Vermont, USA. Abigail Steele died in 1870 at Nashua, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA.

Asahel Chamberlin (M)
b. 7 December 1784, d. 9 July 1869
Pop-up Pedigree

     Asahel Chamberlin was buried at Kibling Cemetery, Strafford, Vermont, USA. He was naturalized; Farmer. He Sometimes seen written/typed as Asahil or Acel.

Though there have been some misleading sources on Asahel Chamberlin, I would like to offer a somewhat conclusive report. Having seen his marker in the Kibling Cemetery, the one on which not only his name appears, but, also that of his second or third wife, Martha Strong. Based on this information, we can eliminate and/or clarify the '2nd Asahel'. The chances of two men of the same name dying the very same day, one being born in 1784, the other on or around 1810, are just about impossible. Also, given the Chamberlin family, just not likely! I suggest, Asahel MAY have married three times, to Sophia Corkins (1806), Mary Preston (1814) and finally, Martha Strong (1838). Though, the stronger possibility is that it was another Asahel who married Mary Preston. The reason for this suggestion is the year of death on Sophia Corkins of 1837, the year before Asahel married Martha Strong. The possibility, of course, still exists that something other than her death led to his marriage of Mary Preston in 1814, but I would find it easier to believe he only had the two wives. Which leaves room for the 2nd Asahel theory, whereby that one DID marry a Mary Preston in 1814. Though, surely not the one born @1827, as mentioned below.

For the sake of argument, until PROVEN otherwise, I will leave Mary Preston as his 2nd wife.

It was likely a cousin of THIS Asahel that was b. @1827 in Thetford, VT, and enlisted in the 18th Regiment of the NH Volunteer Infantry on 13-Sep-1864. Who then mustered out 10-Jun-1865 and who carried a 'P.O' address in Orford, NH. He was born on 7 December 1784 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA. He was the son of Amasa Chamberlin and Molly Briscoe. Asahel Chamberlin married Sophia Corkin on 22 June 1806 at Sharon, Vermont, USA. Asahel Chamberlin married Mary Preston on 22 December 1814 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA. Asahel Chamberlin married Martha Strong, daughter of Elisha Strong and Hannah Moore, on 6 April 1838 at Sharon, Vermont, USA. Asahel Chamberlin died on 9 July 1869 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA, at age 84.
