History of Portland Township page 348

The Presbyterian Church and society in Portland, was organized at Sharon, in 1839, by Rev. Mr. Wilcox, of Geneseo, Henry County.  The first members were: Deacon Kemmis, Mrs. Kimmis, his mother, Mr. and Mrs. Jeremiah H. Johnson, Mrs.  Nathan Norton, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Getty, Mrs. Durfee, Reuben Hurd and Horace Hurd.  The society was organized in the school house near James Rowe's place and in which the little church, held their first meeting.  It was not long before they were blessed by addition of twenty members, mostly by confession of faith.  The old log school house became too small for the requirements of the church, and steps were taken to build a meeting house.  Such was the energy with which the work was prosecuted that on Christmas Day 1841, it was finished and dedicated, Nathaniel Norton was the largest contributor towards the erection of the church, but all contributed according to their limited means. Mr. Norton soon afterwards donated ten acres of land to the church, and assisted largely in erecting a comfortable parsonage at the cost of $400. rev. Daniel Rockwell was the first settled pastor, and he ministered to their spiritual wants for two, some twelve members being added to the church during the time. Rev. Mr. Bliss, a returned missionary, then took charge and remained for seven years. Following him was Rev. Amasa C. Lord, who remained a year and a half.  Rev. E.R. Martin then became pastor, and continued his labors for seven years. Under his pastorate the church obtained its greatest prosperity, having fifty-one members. Unfortunately, the parsonage, with all the church records, was burned at this time. A new one was however, soon erected.  At the close of Mr. Martin's term, Rev.  Joseph Baldwin became pastor, remaining only six months, and was succeeded by Rev. Wm. Kenricks, who continued in charge for three years.  The next settled clergyman was Rev. J.P. Chambers who continued his labors for three years, after which the church was without stated pastoral supply for six years.  Rev. Mr. Corbett is the present pastor, and during his ministry twenty-five have been added to the church.  It now has a membership of forty.  There is a fine cemetery adjoining the church, and in it sleep a large number of the oldest settlers. There is also a cemetery adjoining the school house on section 14, in which there is a handsome monument erected by the citizens of the town in honor of her brave and noble sons who fell in the war for the preservation of the Union.

On November 4, 1851, Portland voted 21 to 11 in favor of organizing into a township. Organization was completed on April 6, 1852, when the first election for township officers was held.  George Paddock was chosen as the first supervisor. He resigned soon after the election and P. Bacchus Bess was named as his successor. In 1855 and again in 1864, persons owning more than one dog were taxed one dollar for each additional canine.  The township met its quota of men during the Civil War with out paying an extra bonus as many of the township did.

The Presbyterians were active in organizing as early as 1839 when they established a church at Sharon.  The meetings were held in a log- schoolhouse until the society built a church on the northwest corner of section 29 in Congressional Township 19 north, range four east, in 1841.  Dedication services were  held on Christmas Day.  A parsonage was built soon after. It burned at a later date and replaced.  Nathaniel Norton contributed largely to the project, donating both money and a ten-acre tract of land.  Part of the ground was laid out as a cemetery.

page 346

Sharon Church changed greatly with the passing of years, Presbyterians became fewer; members of other faiths attended and the name was changed to People's church.  It was out-grown and replaced with a new church which was dedicated on July 7, 1907, Henry Kempster, Richard Thompson and J.P. Fuller, who attended the dedication on December 25, 1841, were present at the second ceremony.  The new edifice had an auditorium 48 feet by 30 feet in size and an annex 18 feet by 30 feet.  The ceilings, floors and woodwork were hard pine. Seating was furnished by Opera chairs and there were gas lights.  The basement had a furnace room and kitchen.  The last regular service was held in Sharon Church on December 7, 1941, but a Ladies' Aid society remained active and took on the care of the unused building. In 1967, there were 18 members left.  They  have explored the possibility or razing the church and making the handsome pulpit-furniture and woodwork available to needy churches. The "cathedral windows of chipped glass" are generally in good repair although there have ben a few replacements of panes.  The glass has a Jack Frost pattern that tempers the light gently.  Outwardly the church presents a well-kept appearance but the inside is sadly dilapidated because of the leakage where the belfry was removed. A swarm of bees has moved into the vestibule. There is a divergence of opinion on the fate of the white church.  Some of the Ladies Aid believe it should be preserved as a landmark while others take a realistic view on the cost of maintenance and the dwindling of workers caused by the passing of time. The cemetery  is maintained by taxes levied by the township.  It presents a pleasant sight in its well-groomed condition.  The old fence was removed but the wrought and cast-iron arch was left with the name Sharon and the date 1841, where the entrance used to be. Mr. and Mrs. Edward Arnett presented a large tablet of concrete which was installed in front of the arch. It lies against a gentle slope and carried a single mnesic word, Memories.  There is another cemetery in Portland Township. It is know as Sandytown although in earlier days it was called Portland.  The burial ground is located on Section 14, congressional Township 19 north, range four, and along County Route Three.  There are fewer graves than in Sharon Cemetery and, towering over the old and new markers, is the column the Ladies' Aid erected in 1867.

Page 347

Ladies' Aid societies in those days were organized to provide necessities and comforts for the men in service.  They served much the same purpose as the local chapters of the Red Cross did in later wars.  They mad bandages and dressings, collected small luxuries and utilities such as needles and thread, paper and writing materials, dried fruits and bedding. The tall monument rest on a base of native stone, There is a plinth of white marble which supports a tapering, square column. At the top, an eagle with raised wings watches from his lofty perch. Even though his beak was dulled by the destructive fingers of Time, his claws still curve fiercely on the globe. The monument shows the erosion of 100 years but it carries legibly the testimonial, "To Their Sons Who Died for Their Country in Grateful Remembrance, Ladies Aid Society, Portland, Illinois, 1867."  Listed in fading letters are the names of 12 soldiers who lost their lives during the Civil War.  They are Eugene L. Besse, Lyman D. Chase, William R. Norcott, Dennis Mendall, Bark Bisby, Robert Emit Adams, Seth E. Langdon, Daniel McNaughton, George Ocoboch (?), Jonathan H. Brown, Carlos W. Martin and J. Delos Timmerman.  The Spring Hill Evangelical United Brethren Church was built in 1887, outside of Portland Township and Whiteside County.  It was then called Emmanuel Church and was located in Loraine Township, Henry County.  About 1893, the building was moved north to the crossroads in the center of section 27, Congressional Township 19 north, range four east, where it was popularly called the Arnett Church after the owners of the adjacent farm.  Services were held there until about 1908 and four years later the building was sold.  It was moved again, that time to the platted area of Spring Hill to a church site obtained from David Urick.  The removal was accomplished by the use of teams and capstans.  It was rededicated as a Union Church, the property of the people of Portland.  About 1930, a society of the United Brethren Church was constituted and the Spring Hill church shared a pastor with the Loraine Church. Extensive improvements were mad about 1954 and the church was again rededicated. Complete services are offered. Presently (1967), the Rev. Albert Atteberry has charge of the Loraine, Spring Hill and Ebenezer Churches.

Not forgotten

By Angie BickerLifestyle Editor

SPRING HILL, Ill. — A busy highway marks the landscape now. The rumblings of motorists fill the air where a congregation once stood.  The hoof prints of horses have long disappeared along with wagons that once carried some of the earliest settlers to worship in rural Whiteside County. The Sharon Church located outside of Spring Hill and 4 miles outside of Erie, Ill., is a solemn reminder of days gone by. The church, which was built in 1907, is surrounded by the rustling of corn fields — a life-size Norman Rockwell painting of rural Americana.  Cindy Young, who lives down the road from the church, has mementos her mother-in-law, Jeanette, kept regarding the church’s history that date back to 1841.  Inside a small box, are newspaper clippings, church announcements and an original photograph of the first Sharon Church, which was dedicated to the congregation on Christmas Day in 1841.  Carefully cut-out newspaper clippings give an insight into the importance of establishing the country church. After thumbing through several archival pieces, Young pointed to one in particular that focused on dispelling a distillery business in the vicinity.  “As the story goes, a distillery had been built on what was known as Thunderbolt hill, and to offset that evil the Sharon Church was erected,” Young said.  Another article focused on the dismay one church member felt with the opening of the existing church in 1907. He lamented, in a poem, his dismay and sadness concerning the closure of the original house of God. He vowed to keep his undying loyalty solely to it. The original church, which became too small to hold its growing congregation, “was dragged across the road” and used as a utility shed.  Young then held up an invitation, which looked like it had been printed yesterday, detailing the events surrounding the Sharon Church’s dedication ceremony on July 7, 1907. One can only picture how attendees were dressed in their Sunday best to mark the celebration at 10 a.m.  According to the book, “History of Whiteside County,” hundreds of people attended the ceremony. The church, which was modern in stature, was built under the watchful eye of John C. Meyer and Sons of Spring Hill. The book then details its measurements, a 48 by 30 main auditorium and 20-foot eaves and a ceiling center of 40 feet. The annex, which measures 18 by 30, was utilized as a Sunday school room and league room. The ceiling was made of hard pine along with the floor and woodwork encasing the cathedral windows. The basement was split into two rooms, one for the furnace and the other for a kitchen.  In a 1941 newspaper article commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Sharon Church, it stated there had not been a worship service for 26 years; however funeral services were still conducted.  Since Young and her husband, Neil, are caretakers of the adjacent cemetery, she looks in on the church from time to time.  “For being abandoned that long, it doesn’t look too bad,” she said. The folding opera chairs to seat the congregation are still in the main auditorium equipped with hymnal holders under the seats.  Next to the church lie many of its members and early settlers in eternal sleep in the Sharon Cemetery. The original arch that says Sharon Cemetery, 1841, still exists even though the gate that surrounded the cemetery is long gone. Many markers tell stories of loved ones taken too soon and of their journeys to a new land. The gravestones, many of which are faded and weathered, are of young people and children who never had the chance to grow old.  The tombstone of Esther M. Carney, who died in 1885 at the age of 37 years, 1 month and 12 days reads: “Rest mother rest, in quiet sleep while friends in sorrow o’er thee weep, and here their heartfelt offerings bring, and near thy grave their requiem sing.”  Over the years, Young has received requests for gravestone etchings from family members who are filling in missing pieces of their family’s history.  “One request was from California. He was doing genealogy and needed information,” she said.  In Young’s opinion, the Sharon Church and adjacent cemetery is very rare. She said it’s not very often that both still co-exist. Young said small town and family cemeteries are scattered along the landscape but very rarely do you see cemeteries directly related to a church.  “I just cannot imagine it not being here,” she said.  Young’s mother-in-law, who was a member of the Sharon’s Ladies Aid, took care of the church for years. According to Young, the group looked into getting the church on the National Register of Historic Places at one time but the building was not old enough.  According to the National Register of Historic Place’s website, a property’s eligibility is based on age, integrity and significance. A property can be nominated by property owners, organizations, governmental agencies and other individuals or groups.  To nominate the Sharon Church, individuals should contact the Illinois Historic Preservations Agency at www.illinoishistory.gov or by calling (217) 782-4836.

 

 

OLD SHARON CHURCH, 12 MILES NORTHEAST HERE, OLDEST IN N.ILLINOIS

(Original building was Built and Dedicated in 1841)

Henry county lays claim to one of the oldest rural church buildings in Northern Illinois, although it has long since been remodeled and replaced  a structure on modern lines.  This church is the Sharon church, located twelve miles northeast of Geneseo.  The original building was built in 1841 and was left standing for more than a half century.  At the time it was replaced it was said to be the oldest place of worship still standing in this section of the state.  The Sharon--Presbyterian--church and society were organized by Rev. Wilcox, of Geneseo, in 1839, with ten charter members.  The first church was built and dedicated on Christmas, 1841.  A parsonage costing $400 was built a little later, with Rev. Daniel Rockwell as the first resident pastor.  Many of the oldest settlers of northern Henry county are buried in the Sharon cemetery, adjacent to the church.  R. R. Stewart, one of the member of the original Geneseo colony, worked as a carpenter of the old church.

Republic of Feb.7, 1896;  At her home in Sharon, Loraine township, Mrs. Henry W. Arnett died Monday, Feb. 3, 1896, at 5 p.m., of diabetes, a disease  from which she had suffered for two years though only compelled to take to her bed about three weeks prior to death.  The maiden name of the deceased was Lottie J. Kempster, she being a daughter of Henry and Elisa Kempster, early settlers of Whiteside county.  She was born in Portland township, that county, Dec. 24th, 1860, and was united in marriage with her now bereaved husband Sept. 24th, 1884.  But one child blessed the union and it died in infancy.  Besides the husband, the father, five sisters and a brother, as well as many bound to her by ties of closest friendship, mourn that she has been called hence just in the prime of life.  She was a woman whose social and home life was bright and cheerful, and even when in the shadow of death she bore up with christian fortitude and thought more of others than of self.  Her last days called about her many friends who did all that willing hearts and ready hands could to give her comfort and peace.  Funeral services were held at Sharon church at 12 p.m., Wednesday, Rev. Mr. Rife officiating, and she was laid at rest in the family burial lot adjacent to the church.  The esteem in which she held was attested by the extrordinarily large attendance at the funeral, not more than a third of these present being able to get into the church.

Burk, Horace     5/20/1808     11/23/1878     70 years.  H/o Sarah  Lot 7

From the Bent Wilson History of Whiteside County 1877.
HORACE BURKE was born in Berkshire county, Massachusetts. He lived in Bennington county, Vermont, 20 years. In 1830 he moved to Erie county, New York, and in 1834 came to Cook county, Illinois, and opened a farm on the Jolict road. He was by trade a carpenter, and worked in Chicago helping to raise and frame the first two-story house in that city. He came to Portland in June, 1834, where he still lives. He lost his entire improvements in the tornado of 1844, and nearly all his stock. He rebuilt, and the weary traveler and emigrant have always found a cordial welcome in his house. It was the place for holding elections from 1836 to 1853. He married Miss Lydia Sprague in 1832, and after her death, married Mrs. Hannah Witt, in 1850. Children: James, Dwight E., Sarah, Georgia, Alice, Julia, and Lydia. Dwight E. is dead; Georgia married Prank Haddaway and is also dead; Alice married Theodore Wyman and lives in Iowa; James married Miss Mary Briggs, Sarah married Win. Harris, Julia married Geo. Curry, and Lydia married Monroe Occobock—the last four mentioned reside in Kansas.

 

Surnames: Burk, Currie, Mosier, Harris

 

I might be able to provide a little info about the Horace Burk family. I'm descended from his daughter Julia who married George Currie. In 1983 I was corresponding with Ruby Egnew who was descended from his daughter Sarah Jane who married William Harris. I do not know her sources, but she said Horace Burk's second wife was Hannah Page Witt. Also, Horace and Lydia had seven children who reached adulthood and two who died in infancy, Helen and Elizabeth.Also, Horace Burk's parents were Horace Burk (b. Ireland) and Sarah Mosier (b. England ?, d. 15 Feb 1855, ae. 78, buried in Sharon Cemetery). I've never followed up on this information. I have a little info on Horace and Lydia's family I can share if anyone's interested. Let me know.  James

Burk, Sarah, wife of H. d. Feb . 15, 1855 - 75 yrs.
Did some checking on the LDS Search facility and found an IGI record for Horace's birth in 1808 which matches. Also found an ancestral file for the family which gives this for Hannah.
Born: 4 Nov 1804 Place: (incorrect).
Died: 1 Aug 1889 Place: , Whiteside, Illinois
Buried: Place: Erie Cemetery, Whiteside, Illinois
Married: 1850 Place: Whiteside, Illinois
So, who is the Sarah, wife of H. Burk? The date of death doesn't fit either Hannah or Lydia. And I checked and Hannah is buried in the Erie cemetery with the 1 Aug 1889 date of death……………..Bob

Re: Rieger Marriages

Ron, I saw a message that you had posted in 1999 on an ancestry.com message board concerning Reigers married in Whiteside County. Bob Mosher included the marriage of William Dail to Nora/Dora Reiger in his reply. William was a 1st cousin of mine - his father Robert Dail had the same father (Nathaniel) as my great-great-great grandfather. If you have found any information about William in your research of your relative, I would appreciate it if you could let me know any of it. The only information I currently have about Nora (which sometimes is also listed as Dora) Reiger is that she was born in 1879 and died in 1946. She is buried alongside William in Sharon Cemetery in Spring Hill in Whiteside County.  Interestingly enough, I have another Reiger on my family tree. Walter Reiger married Lillian Dail, who was born in 1860. Lillian was William's sister.  I look forward to hearing from you. Please let me know if I can provide or research anything for you.   Thank you,  Becky Dail   dailfarm@accessus.net   or   cookiemnstr@hotmail.com

Ron, I saw a message that you had posted in 1999 on an ancestry.com message board concerning

Reigers married in Whiteside County. Bob Mosher included the marriage of William Dail to

Nora/Dora Reiger in his reply. William was a 1st cousin of mine - his father Robert Dail had the

same father (Nathaniel) as my great-great-great grandfather. If you have found any information

about William in your research of your relative, I would appreciate it if you could let me know

any of it. The only information I currently have about Nora (which sometimes is also listed as

Dora) Reiger is that she was born in 1879 and died in 1946. She is buried alongside William in

Sharon Cemetery in Spring Hill in Whiteside County.  Interestingly enough, I have another

Reiger on my family tree. Walter Reiger married Lillian Dail, who was born in 1860. Lillian was

William's sister.  I look forward to hearing from you. Please let me know if I can provide or

research anything for you. Thank you,  Becky Dail   dailfarm@accessus.net   or

I just returned from a visit to the Quad Cities, Geneseo, Morrison, and Portland-Whiteside County. It is magnificiently beautiful! My search included viewing the gravesite of Mary Hunt Dannenfelser at Sharon Cemetery and the graves of Frederick and Mary Dannenfelser at Oakwood Cemetery in Geneseo. I also viethe land in Portland Township which was acquired by U.S. Land Grants in the late 1840's; in all it was a successful and very pleasant trip. My disappointment was in finding only a "reference" to naturalization in the basement of the Rock Island County Courthouse.I appear to be running aground on finding and establishing a connection back to the birthplace in Germany; if any of you have suggestions on alternatives available please let me know. A question: Where is located the most complete selection (for the area) of "Germans to America"?? Also, the most likely Passenger Lists for arriving in Rock Island? Does anyone have an idea of what might have attracted them "directly" to the area from Germany?? Thanks for any help, Charlie Dannenfelser

Dear friends, I have visited the website of Tampico Historical Society, and there I found information on the Sharon Cemetery. I can provide you with some corrected information that may be very helpful to anyone doing genealogy research, because there is some inaccurate information there on one of the people buried in Sharon Cemetery. This is not unusual since family last names were often spelled several different ways. Anyway, here is what I am talking about. It concerns someone listed as buried in Sharon Cemetery under the name of Thomas Delpha. This is actually Thomas Delphey. All of the birth dates and other information that you have for Thomas Delpha agree perfectly with the birth date and death date of Thomas Delphey. I was at Sharon Cemetery last month, and the tombstone of Thomas Delphey is right there near the edge of the road, Springhill Road, and it is down near the gravel service road east of the church. The tombstone is in near perfect condition, and all of the dates agree perfectly. It is simply that the last name is Delphey and not Delpha. This was my grandfather, and this corrected information could be important for someone doing research. Best wishes, Bill

James Getty

Birth: Oct. 28, 1803 Salem Washington County New York, USA

Death: Aug. 11, 1864 Helena Phillips County Arkansas, USA

On the 13th of March 1857, while living in East Hamburg, New York, James Getty shot a neighbor he did not like: namely one Daniel Albert. Albert was out working in his wood lot when Getty approached him with a shotgun, and proceeded to fire both barrels into Albert's thigh. He was helped to his house, but subsequently died of his injuries. James Getty was arrested and jailed, and went to trial on the 24th.

His attorney produced witnesses to say James had been despondent since the death of his daughter in 1854, and had been known to talk wildly to himself, weep for days, and on one occasion took a rope to the barn with the intention of hanging himself. Friends said he had inquired whether they had heard any report of his wife being unfaithful, though she was known to be a virtuous woman. James had told people it was his belief that Daniel Albert was behind the rumors. Other than his demonstrable hatred of Albert, Getty was known to be a temperate man. This produced a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity. James was sent to the state asylum at Utica for treatment. Some time passed, and James enlisted in the Union Army. He was wounded at Fort Donelson and discharged; then went to Helena, Arkansas, where he died.

James married 04 Jul 1833 at Springville, New York, Mary Thorne Fosdick daughter of Solomon and Anna (Thorne) Fosdick of Erie County, New York. Mary died at Hamburg, New York, in 1891.

Don't let them say I wasn't born, that something stopped my heart. I felt each tender squeeze you gave,
I loved you from the start.Although my body you can't hold, it doesn't mean I am gone. This world was worthy not of me ~ God chose that I move on.I know the pain that drowns your soul, what you are forced to face ~You'll have my word I'll fill your arms, some day we will embrace.You'll hear that "It was meant to be, God doesn't make mistakes." But that won't soften your worst blow, or make your heart not ache.
I'm watching over all you do, another child you'll bear,Believe me when I say to you that I am always there!There will come a time I promise you, when you will hold my hand.Stroke my face and kiss my lips
and then you'll understand.Although I never breathed your air or gazed into your eyes,That does not mean I never wasAn angel never dies.Authur UK

Huntington, Daisy2/25/1879  5/21/1905

Geneseo Republic May 26, 1905

This community was shocked Monday by the unexpected and extremely sad word that Miss Daisy Huntington, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Huntington, had died at Monmouth, Sunday, from the accidental taking of carbolic acid. Miss Huntington's career has been an exceptionally successful one and her family here and friends had but just learned with pleasure that she had been reengaged as instructor of kindergarten work at Monmouth at an advanced salary and they were looking forward to her coming home to spend the summer vacation when the crushing word came that she had passed away. The blow is especially severe to the parents for whom deep sympathy is felt.  But meager information has reached here concerning the sudden death.  The remains are being conveyed to Geneseo accompanied by one of the teachers associated with the deceased.  If the body arrives Friday the funeral will be held at the Sharon church in the afternoon. We will next week publish a more extended notice concerning the life and work of deceased young lady.

The funeral of Miss Daisy Huntington was held at the Sharon church Friday afternoon having been brought here from Portland, Oregon. The remains were accompanied by one of her lady friends of that place.  The parents and relatives have the sympathy of all in their sad affliction.

J.C. Lanphere

J.C. Lanphere was born at Monmouth, Warren County Ill., June 27, 1848.  He was the son of Caleb and Lucinda Lamphere, the youngest of a family of 11  children, all of whom preceded him in death. At the age of four years he came with his parents to Spring Hill, Whiteside county, Ill., where he has resided for the last 72 years.  He was a blacksmith by trade and followed the occupation for a number of years. In the spring of 1864 he enlisted for the Civil War and entered service in Co.B. 140th Regiment, Illinois Volunteers, and received an honorable discharge out of the army at Chicago. He was married to Miss Jennie Mendell Nov. 1, 1868, at Portland. They have lived happily together for 56 years and celebrated their golden wedding anniversary six years ago. There were born to this union three children, one son, Claude, who preceded  him in death, and two daughters, Daisy L. wife of H.P. Fuller, of Spring Hill, and Sadie M. wife of M.C. Martin of Sterling. Mr. Lanphere served two terms as postmaster at Spring Hill and was constable for several years.  At the age of 15 years he was baptized and joined the Methodist church.  Father Lanphere was a kind and loving husband and father, very affectionate to his family, and his home was the place on earth he loved the best. He died a firm believer in God and in immortal life.  He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, two daughters, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren and a host of friends.  Dear father is gone, Oh, how we miss him. No one can take his place, how we long to hear that familiar voice, and view that blessed face.  But the vacant chair cannot be filled, more can we view his face. But blessed that, we’ll meet again beyond, in that better place.

She was found dead in bed Friday morning, probably the result of a chronic heart trouble which had affected her for years. She left town Wednesday apparently feeling as well as usual and her death came as a surprise to her relatives as well as Prophetstown people. She leaves relatives by former marriages as well as her husband, who is her senior by a number of years. She was a lady well thought of and had many friends who will mourn her taking. Mrs. Martin was buried Sunday in Sharon cemetery where a former husband is laid to rest. The funeral was conducted in the Sharon church, many friends from Prophetstown attending.

In 1866 Catherine’s father and mother came to Portland Township, Whiteside Co. and purchased 240 acres of land located on sections 27 and 28.  They resided there until 1880 and then Peter added to his original purchase until he owned 400 acres.   In March 1880, he bought seven lots in Erie, IL., and moved there with his family.  He served as Justice of the Peace from 1880 and was reelected in 1885.  He was a member of the Village Board, and of the Order of Masonry, and a member of the Methodist Church.   In the 1880 census he was enumerated as Wilts; age 52; farmer; real estate = $150,000; personal property = $3100; wife Mary; eight children; also in house are Arthur Welding, 28, farm laborer and wife Mary 26, their daughter Agnes, age 9 months; plus Joseph Kelly, 20, farm laborer; and Frank Armstrong, 22,  school teacher.  His children listed in this census (8) do not all match the names given in the Whiteside Co History.  The census lacks Sarah, Jacob, Mary A, and Margaret that are in the history; but it has Benjamin and Luella, who are not in the History.  Mary Young Wilt died on March 21, 1883, in Erie, Whiteside Co., IL.  One year after her death, 65-year-old Peter married 35-year-old Mary Featherstinein Kearney, NE, on 21 March 1883.  The fate of this couple is unknown.

Catherine “Kate” Wilt married John W. Kelley on May 6, 1871, in Prophetstown, Whiteside Co., IL; the marriage was performed by clergyman George Whitefield Carr.  The couple had at least two sons, Albert (or Ollie) and Frank.  The first mention of them is in the 1880 census, when they were living with Barber and Kate in Portland Twp., Whiteside Co., IL.  Albert/Ollie was born in 1873 and Frank was born in 1875, both probably in Whiteside Co., IL.  Kate remained in Clinton with Lloyd CURTIS until 1900, at which time she left Clinton.  The Clinton City directory for 1899-1900 (p. 61) gives this information: widow of  B. J. Curtis; lives at 945 Camanche Ave with son Lloyd R. Curtis; he works at Peterson, Bell & Co.  Kate’s sons Albert and Frank were not in Clinton at that time.  Lloyd moved to Marion, Lynn Co., IA, where he worked for the railroad most of his career.  On 10 April 1901 Kate married for the third time to Fayette MARTIN, who also married for his third time.  Fayette was the son of Edward MARTIN and Chloe HOPKINS and was born 14 March 1843 in Parrish, Oswego Co., NY, and died 18 June 1925 in Amboy, Lee Co., IL.  Fayette was age 58 and Kate was 43 at the time of their marriage.  Fayette served in the Civil War and was commended for Distinguished Service.  He enlisted as a private on 1 February 1865 in Co., B, 147th Illinois Infantry Regiment.  He was mustered out on 20 January 1866 in Savannah, Georgia and was noted for Distinguished Service.   In Fayette Martin’s history posted on the web, his third wife is listed a Catherine Clapper (Curtis?), with a note that family tradition reports the wife’s name was KATE CURTIS KELLEY.  Fayette and his first wife are buried in the Sharon Church cemetery a mile or so SE of Spring Hill, Whiteside Co., IL.

Republic 12-1-1905

Agnes Mead, born near Meadville, pa., May 6, 1819, married to Robert Getty, December 6, 1847, died November 18, 1905, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. E. Huntington, in Rock Rapids, Iowa in her eighty seventh year.  In 1843 she came west to Illinois with an uncle who settled in Whiteside county.  Soon after her marriage, she moved to Geneseo, Ill. where she resided till the death of her husband, September 12, 1864.  Five children were born to them, two dying in infancy, Katie, who was a graduate of Wellesburg and an instructor in the State school for the Mute at Jacksonville, Ill., died at the age of 26, two daughters, Mrs. Waddell of California, and Mrs. E. Huntington of this place with whom she has made her home for twenty-two years, besides these, two daughters of Mr. Getty, Mrs. Fletcher and Mrs. Langdon, both of Brooklyn, New York survive her.  Her going away was a natural and necessary journey, planned on and prepared for through long well lived years, and the folding of her hands the most expected phase of life when the lights burn low in the quiet places where children have been born and reared and gone out to establish homes of their own.  Her mission well preformed and the duties lain upon her kind all done, with the soul development attended upon devotion such as hers, why should she not leave the clay which had served the purpose in the day, and go unbound and better to greater possibility.  And so we mark the passing of our beloved friend and loved one by a date and place upon the world, but we who knew her in her natures years shall not forget the spirit of her kindly greetings nor lose the trace her beautiful earth life has left upon us.  the closing lines of her life were said by her pastor, rev. H.H. Burch of the Congregational church, on Sunday afternoon, at her late home and paid fitting tribute to the ???? record of her years.  Mr. and Mrs. E. Huntington, accompanied the remains to Geneseo, where many old friends of hers and family assembled at the of Dr. Chas. Young, a nephew of Mrs. Getty and Rev. Millard, pastor of her old home church conducted a brief memorial service.  Interment was made in Sharon cemetery.

Judge Charles Riley, of Albron, Neb. Better known to our readers as Prof. Riley, visited in Geneseo Tuesday. His presence in Illinois at this time was occasioned by the death of his father, Dr. John Riley, Sr., which occurred at his home in Spring Hill Wednesday of last week, at the age of eighty-four. Dr. Riley was a pioneer of Illinois, coming to Knox county in 1846. From 1849 until 1853, he resided in Andover township and then removed to Spring Hill where he has since resided. By hi skill and thorough knowledge of medicine he soon won the confidence and esteem of the people. In the Course of a few years, he built up an extensive and lucrative practice, his rides extending to all the adjoining counties for not withstanding the difficultly of traveling in early day. He always responded cheerful and promptly to the calls of his numerous patients. A man of prudent foresight and good business capacity, the doctor purchased land soon after locating at Spring Hill, and has since improved a fine homestead. He was also engaged in mercantile business there for about eight years , meeting with excellent success in this as in his other industries. Six sons survive him, as follows, Charles a attorney in Albron, Neb, John a physician at Exlis, Iowa, George W. a lawyer in Idaho, Bruce, a doctor residing in Goldfield, Iowa, Henry C. who lives on the home farm near Spring Hill, and Lincoln an active practitioner of Wisner, Neb, Dr. Riley always took a deep interest in local affairs and in 1872 he was elected county coroner, and office which he filled most satisfactorily.

The Charles Cleavland (sp?) you mention from your database of family history is the son of Milton Rolland Santee (1860-1936) and Mary Nettie Boda (1867-1931).  He was born in December 1892 and died in May 1976.  I assume he was named for his uncle (Milton's brother) Charles C. Santee (25 Sep 1866-21 Mar 1892).  He's buried at Sharon on the same plot as his parents Martin (1822-1885) and Mary Henry (1829-1902).  Charles was married to Mary M. Sorbeck in October 1891.  Mary gave birth to their child in July 1892 and later remarried.

CHARLES SANTEE

A fatal shooting accident occurred at the residence of Jacob Sauerbach, on the Cook Besse, farm, near Sharon, last Sunday. His son-in-law, Charles Santee, who was the victim, was visiting there that day and about 2 o'clock in the afternoon he and his brother-in-law were examining a gun. They knew it was loaded, and as a precaution had taken the caps off. In some way unknown it was discharged while in the hands of his brother-in-law and the charge struck Santee in the thigh near the groin, causing a wound from which he died at 2 a.m. Monday. Deceased was a son of Mrs. Mary Santee, formerly of this city, was aged about 26 years, and had been married but about six months. It is a very sad affair and the brother-in-law is overwhelmed by grief on account of it. The funeral was held last Wednesday. The young wife and other relatives have the deepest sympathy of friends.

Ms. Pardus,  Thank you for your work with the Sharon Cemetery.  My wife and I were at Sharon just last month to tie a few loose strings together.  Anyway, Martin Santee was my Great-Grandfather.  There is a correction to be made about Martin.  His age at death was 62 years, etc., etc.  He died in 1885 and his wife Mary (nee: Henry) later remarried Dixon Allan but she out-lived him.  On the same family plot is their son Charles Santee who died in 1892.  Charles was married in October 1891 and died in March 1892.  I believe that the broken stone to the south of the large SANTEE stone is for another of their children, Walter J.  Walter appears in the 1870 and 1880 census as does Charles.  That's about all I know about Charles and obviously less about Walter.  Walter does NOT appear in the 1900 census so the inference is that he had died by that time.  I have marriage records for Charles that I obtained at the courthouse in Morrison but have had no luck finding anything about Walter.  I attempted to locate death information (obit) about Charles at the Geneseo Public Library but their equipment was not working properly and they were unable to assist me in locating anything regarding him.  I'd be interested to know if cemetery records exist showing if, indeed, Walter is buried on that plot and when he was buried.  It is my intent to contact the Geneseo Public Library and let them search the newspapers for Charles' marriage and death (since they volunteered).  If I can discover Walter's death/burial date perhaps I can locate more information.  Thanks again for your work at Sharon.

Her friends thought she was gaining up to last Friday, when she was taken suddenly worse. All that kind and loving hands could do was done but she declined rapidly and passed away as stated above. The funeral was held at the Sharon Church Monday at 11 o'clock conducted by Rev. Thompson, of Erie, who preached from the text found in 1st.

The remains were laid at rest in the family lot in the Sharon cemetery. 

Rest on, dear mother, soon we'll meet you

In a world that's free from pain.

Meet around the throne of Jesus,

Never more to part again.

Thought it seems so hard to leave her,

In the cold, dark grave alone.

Yet our savior still will guard her

As he did while here below.

Dearest brothers, sisters, friends,

Let us tread the path she trod,

That whenever Jesus calls us

We'll meet dear mother and our God.

Last Sunday morning Walter Santer son of Martin Santee, of Sharon, was drowned. In company with several other young men, he went bathing in Rock river at the old stone quarry near Benson's. After finishing their bath the boys concluded to ride their horses Into the river. Young Santee's horse either reined in or freightened, reared and fell over backwards burrying his rider under him and probably inflicting injuries that prevented the boy from helping himself out, as he was drowned. Search was continuously made for the body for two days, but at last accounts we had from there it had not been recovered. Walter was between eighteen and twenty years of age and was Mr. Santee's second son.

Sibley, Ray        b. Jun. 11, 1880       d. Oct. 5, 1922

Republic 10-13-1922

Claimed to have been maddened by taunts that he lost his job and the threat of his father-in-law to throw him out of the home of his wife's grandparents with whom he lived.  Blair Denton, 29 years old of Erie shot and killed his father-in-law, Ray Sibley, 42 years old of Prophetstown at the Henry Sibley home in Erie late last Thursday afternoon.  A family quarrel of more than a year's standing said to have been started by the family conference of the father-in-law in the affairs of the couple, was thus ended.  Sibley was shot twice, once though the head and once through the shoulder.  He died almost instantly.  In an effort to save the father life and prevent her husband becoming a murderer, Mrs. Denton jumped between her husband and father but her attempt was unsuccessful.  Her husband stepped back and fired the shots that killed her father, over his head as she was screaming and frantically imploying him not to shoot.  As her father fell, he cried to his daughter to run for help.  the daughter ran from the house to get a doctor and as she passed through the front gate heard another hot fired.  With her fright and fear for her father's life giving her speed, she secured a doctor in a few minutes, but her father died while the daughter and physician were coming.
