THE WEISHUHN FAMILY CREST

According to the information in "The International Crest Register, Volume XII by Johann Siebmacher", the following registration is under the Weishuhn name.

Old German citizenry from the 15th century relative to the Province of Bayern (Bavaria), have with courage and valor participated in the crusades in the 12th and 13th century.

In the year of 1765, Karl August Weishuhn was a great land owner and farmer.

For his great services for the benefit of the nation, he was honored by the Royal Authorities with a family crest and a letter of heraldry on parchment.

During the Seven Years War (Silesia War 1756-1763) Karl August Weishuhn made available great parts of his land holdings to the hungry and starving people without charge, and for these merits, he was honored and decorated by the Reigning Sovereign.

Descendants of this family migrated to other German Provinces and others to Denmark, Holland, and America.

THE WEISHUHN CREST IS DESCRIBED AS FOLLOWS;

A white shield with a black shaded area on the right, contains a red steerhead with golden embellishments as symbols of purity of character, impregnable, noble virtues and love of fatherland. A free flowing embellishment of dark blue, green and silver surrounds the helmet and shield harmoniously. A jousting helmet in the color of silver and with a black visor, a golden chain, black shoulder band and red sleeve decoration. A banner above the helmet in the colors of red and white and horns in changing colors of silver and blue as a symbol of firm devotion to the fatherland and readiness to help.

Origin of the Weishuhn Family.

In the book,"Etymologisches Worterbuch Der Deutchen Familie Namen" it is stated that the name WEISHUHN was preceded by Withoen and there was a record of a Heinriech Withoen of Hamburg, Prussia in 1275.

The book also states that the earliest record of the Weishuhn name was a Johann Weishuhn, school teacher and later a pastor in Echell, Echzell, (HESSE) Germany in 1542.

Note; Weishuhn translates to white hen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DEDICATION

 

 

I want to especially thank my wife Helen for giving up much of her time while we went on Genealogy vacations for the past several years, and for listening to me ask the same questions and tell the same stories over and over again.

I also want to thank my aunt Alice Weishuhn Schmitzer, my cousins Dorothy Weishuhn Schlaud, Alma Roe, and all of those who have sent me material for this book.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FORWARD

This book is a result of my research of the descendants of John Henry Weishuhn, a British Loyalist during the American Revolutionary War, 1776-1783. The reason that I have only included descendants of John Henry Weishuhn is because I have discovered two other groups with the Weishuhn name in North America. and I have not been able to prove a relationship to either of these groups as yet. I hope to prove that we are all related, and then write another book on all of the Weishuhn's of North America.

The first group lives in Canada with members living in several provinces, but mostly in Toronto, Ontario, and Vancouver, British Columbia. This group are descendants of Johann and Fredrica Weishuhn who came to Canada from Germany about 1850 and settled near Mildmay, Ontario. I have visited with several of these family and am in the process of gathering data from them.

The next group are descendants of three brothers who came from Westphalia, Germany in 1847 and settled around Columbus, Texas. Their names were Edward, Ernst, and Julius Weishuhn. My wife Helen and I went to visit this group at a family reunion in 1978, and had a wonderful time. Again I have not been able to prove that we are related, but I feel sure that we are.

In conclusion, I have spent several years now searching and traveling in the U.S., Canada, and England looking at public records for information about my family. I have also made countless telephone calls seeking information, and I believe that if you meet a Weishuhn, he will be a member of one of the three groups mentioned.

I have also done some research in Germany and found only one name so far. She is Lucia Weishuhn living in Berlin and I have been in contact with her.

The task of compiling a family history is never completed. At some point one must draw a line and publish. With full reluctance and recognition that this point has been reached I decided to publish this book so that copies will be available at the Weishuhn Family Reunion in Au Gres, Michigan on August 2, 1981.

Even though this book is completed, I will continue on with my research because Daniel Webster once said,

"He who Careth not whence he come, careth little wither he goeth"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION

This book is arranged in three parts. Part one is about my great, great, great grandfather, John Henry Weishuhn and his immediate family and covers a time period from the beginning of the Revolutionary War in 1776 and ends with the death of my great, great, grandfather, James Alexander Weishuhn in 1876 in Ontario, Canada.

Part two starts with Henry W. Weishuhn, only known son of James Alexander Weishuhn. It includes information about his family and all known descendants to date. This part of the book is divided into 13 chapters. Each chapter covers a child of Henry and his wife Mariah MARKLE. The census records indicate that there was a fourteenth child but no information about the name, birth date, etc. has been found, so the child must have died as an infant.

Part three is a bibliography of the reference sources used in obtaining information for this book. When a number is seen in parenthesis in the text, the number can be found in the bibliography and the reference listed. (not included)

In the back of this book are several blank pages, and these may be used to write in additions or changes that may be discovered after this book is published.

In addition a supplemental address list of Weishuhn and related names is available on request.

Copies of this book and supplement address list can be obtained at the writer’s cost by calling or writing.

JOHN HENRY WEISHUHN

UNITED EMPIRE LOYALIST, AND SOLDIER

AND HIS FAMILY, 1776-1876

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

JOHN HENRY WEISHUHN U.E.

 

This book begins with John Henry WEISHUHN who was my Great, Great, Great Grandfather. He was a well educated man who could write expertly. I have several copies of letters in his handwriting and they are very well done, with lots of fancy phrases that were used in that time period. He lived in East Florida and had a Plantation of 250 acres along the Nassau River near what is now Jacksonville, Florida. The plantation consisted of 125 acres of Corn and Rice and 125 acres of Pine.

John Henry married a girl whose first name was Jane, and no last name was given, (1). John Henry and Jane had a son, John William WEISHUHN born while living in East, Florida. Jane’s father also had a plantation along the Nassau River which was burned by American Troops in May of 1776. This incident is mentioned in a letter (1) written by John Henry on May 5, 1797, and an interesting account of this military action is recorded in several history books on the Revolutionary War and is as follows;

About the 1st of May, 1776, Colonel John Baker with a force of 109 men of the Georgia Militia marched into East Florida and were supposed to meet up with Colonel Samuel Elbert and two battalions of the Continental Army and proceed to, and capture the fort at Saint Augustine. Elbert’s troops were coming by boat and did not arrive on schedule as planned. Colonel Baker decided to send a detachment of 40 men on ahead toward Cowford, (now Jacksonville, Fla.). Two days later Colonel Baker decide to join his troops at Cowford as Colonel Elbert had not arrived.

On May 17, 1776, Major Mare Prevost and a force of British Regulars plus East Florida Rangers and Indians came across the Americans at Thomas Creek. The Americans were surrounded and out-numbered. Some managed to escape including Colonel Baker, but about 40 were captured. The Indians Fell upon the captives and murdered all but 16 who were saved by Major Prevost and his troops. The reason for this slaughter was because the Americans had captured, tortured and slain an Indian the previous day. Colonel Baker arrived at the north end of Amelia Island on May 20, 1776 with 18 survivors, and met Colonel Elbert. After telling of his defeat, Colonel Elbert decided to abandon the attempt to invade Florida, but he ordered that every house be burned and all of the cattle slain.

JOHN HENRY WEISHUHN U.E.

 

Jane’s father’s plantation was one of those burned during Colonel Baker’s raid and John Henry' s letter mentions that Jane’s father died from grief and sorrow soon after his home was burned.

John Henry and a partner, Robert Grant (possibly his Father-in-law) also owned another tract of 250 acres of uncultivated land on a branch of the Nassau River. He was forced to leave this property during the war, but he filed a claim to the British Government after the war ended and was paid 60 pounds Sterling for his loss. It’s too bad that the land and military records of East Florida were lost during the Revolutionary War as they would have given me a lot of information about my ancestor.

The first military record of John Henry is in the Muster Roll of the 60th or Royal American Regiment of Foot in the British Army. He was listed as a Sergeant in the 3rd Battalion under Captain Jacob Muller from June 25, 1776 to December 24, 1777. The 60th Regimen was the garrison Regiment of the Fort at Saint Augustine with detachments scattered around at strategic locations in East Florida. Soon afterward the Regiment was ordered to proceed and attack Charleston, SAC. under the command of Augustine Prevost. John Henry went with the Regiment and while on the way, Captain Muller was shot and killed. How long John Henry stayed in Charleston is not known as the records were lost. In his letter (1) he states that he then went to New York.

After arriving in New York he went to Hampstead, England With Captain Augustine Prevost where he stayed from June 25, 1780 to January 24, 1783. He then returned to Camp Newton Creek on Long Island, New York. This camp would be across the East River from midtown Manhattan, where he stayed from June 25, 1783 until September 8, 1783 which was the last muster of the war in New York.

The 60th Regiment was then transported to Halifax, Nova Scotia where they were discharged. John Henry and his family along with a group of other loyalists left Halifax by ship on November 5, 1783 for Chetapucto, Nova Scotia where they were to take up promised land. The ship ran into one of the worst storms of the century and the ship was blown so far off course that they went to Falmouth, England where they spent the winter.

JOHN HENRY WEISHUHN U.E.

 

The family returned to Halifax with the spring fleet and John Henry was given 200 acres of Crown Land in Preston Township about six miles from Halifax. He tried farming the land for two years but the land was barren and the weather poor for growing crops. Finally after much disappointment he rejoined the 60th Regiment in the 1st Battalion as a Private on August 9, 1786 and was sent to Fort Niagara. On August 9, 1787 he was again promoted to Sergeant, and from December 25, 1787 until his final discharge on December 24, 1790 he was Command Sergeant under General Halimand.

After his Discharge, John Henry entered into the Portage business around Niagara Falls. Ships from Lake Ontario unloaded their cargo below the Falls into wagons drawn by Oxen. The wagons were pulled up Portage Road to Chippawa above the Falls where they were unloaded onto ships going into Lake Erie. John Henry and his family lived and owned lot # 5 of the original plot plan of Newark (now called Niagara Falls, Ontario) In 1795 John Henry purchased from William Lyons, Lots 10. 20, and 21 on the 3rd Concession and lots 1 and 2 at the intersection of the Welland River and Lyons Creek in the Township of Willoughby, Lincoln County, Ontario. This purchase of approximately 800 acres was a sizable portion of the town of Chippawa. John Henry built his home on the point of land where Lyons Creek flows into the Welland River and called this land "WEISHUHN's Point". He built a six room one and one half story log house here. It is described as 30 by 40 feet with a fireplace in each room and a large kitchen.

You will read much more about this property when I tell you about John Henry's oldest son John William WEISHUHN.

John Henry had several other land holdings which were given to him for his services in the British Army and because he was a loyalist, he wrote the following letter:

"To his Excellency, John Graves Simcoe, Esquire, Lieutenant Governor and Commander-In-Chief of his Majestys Forces in the Province of Upper Canada in Council.

 

 

 

 

JOHN HENRY WEISHUHN U.E.

 

The Petition of Henry WEISHUHN most humbly herewith.

That your Petitioner has served in the 3rd Battalion of his Majestys Sixtieth, or Royal American Regiment of Foot during the last Rebellion as Sergeant Major. That your Petitioner wishing to avail himself of his Majesty’s most gracious bounty for himself, wife and five children, begs leave to apply for an allotment of land his Majesty most graciously allows; and further begs for an additional bounty the quantity of which your Petitioner most humbly submits to your wisdom, and your petitioner wall ever pray.

Signed H. WEISHUHN

Newark The 4th of July 1794 "

John Henry's Petition was read in Council on Wednesday July 9, 1794 and his Petition was referred to the land board for action.

An interesting item of business took place at this Council meeting that deserves mention. It was decided that the Town of York be established. The Town of York is now called Toronto, Ontario the largest City in Canada.

On July 29, 1795, the Council ordered that John Henry and his family be given 800 acres of Crown Land.

The land that was given to John Henry and his family was as follows;

Lots, 17, 13, 19, and the south half of lot 20 in the 3rd concession of Windham Township, Norfolk County, Upper Canada. (now Ontario)

Lot 5 on the Welland River in the Township of Willoughby in Lincoln County. (now Chippawa, Ontario)

The above lots measure about 200 acres each, so the family received about 970 acres total.

 

JOHN HENRY WEISHUHN U.E.

 

A Command Sergeant is one who is on location at some special post or doing a mission somewhere, usually at another post or fort.

In the first assignment of town lots in the town of Newark (now Niagara on the Lake, Ontario) Henry was given lot # 5. This was a half acre lot and is at the corner of Front Street and Regent Street, in Niagara on the Lake. He later sold the land to Ebenezer Whiting, a watchmaker. Mr. Whiting leased the property while he was in the U.S., for several years. In the meantime the War of 1812 broke out and the Town of Niagara was burned by the Americans, including the house and records. A Mr John Andrew Stevenson was granted the lot in 1818 by the authorities much to the surprise of Mr. Whiting. The matter was brought before the courts on March 15, 1321, however the court decided in favor of Mr.

Stevenson. Niagara on the Lake is just across the Niagara river from old Fort Niagara where the Niagara River empties into Lake Ontario.

Henry went into the Portage business on the Niagara River around the Falls. He first was on the east side of the Old Portage river and the lower landing was at Lewiston, New York and the upper landing was about ten miles up the river at Fort Schlosser, across from Chippawa. In 1796 when the Fort Niagara was taken over by the U.S. by treaty agreement, the British then moved across the River to the west bank. In 1789 the British had built a new Portage road on the west bank from Table rock in Queenston to the Welland River at Chippawa a distance of about 11 miles. The first men to supply teams and wagons for tale new portage were; Adam Vrooman, Thomas Cummings, James Forsythe, Timothy Skinner, Charles Wilson, Henry Weishuhn, John McEwan, Benjiman Canby, David Secord, Irish John Wilson, and Adam Kreisler.

In 1796, John Henry and family moved from Mevvark to the township of Willoughby near Chippawa. He purchased Lots 1 and 2 on the River Welland and lots 19, 20, and 21 of concession # 3 from William Lyons. He built his home on the intersection of the Welland River and Lyons Creek and called the place Weishuhn's Point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

JOHN HENRY WEISHUHN U.E.

 

While living in Willoughby Township, John Henry was the Township Assessor in 1797 and 1802, and was the Township Warden in 1801.

John Henry WEISHUHN died sometime in late 1803 or early 1804. The exact date or place of burial has not been determined at this time. I did make a search of all the cemeteries in the area, and the early death records and could not find out about his death. He probably was buried near his home.

John Henry did not make a will, and on April 21, 1804, much of his property was auctioned off at Public Vendue. An interesting account of this Auction was recorded by the Ontario Historical Society and is as follows:

"An appraisement of Mr. WEISHUHN's property was made by Peter McMickling, John Rowe, and John Hardy and totaled 2l5 Pounds, 10 Shillings. The articles sold amounted to 273 Pounds, 10 Shillings arid are listed below

As was customary in those days, the home and property went to the oldest son John William Weishuhn.

The Family of John Henry Weishuhn and his wife Jane consisted of five children who were John William, Philip Henry, James Alexander, who was my Great, Great, Grandfather, a daughter Sophia and one other child of which I have not been able to find out about as yet. Jane Weishuhn lived until sometime after 1810 but I have not found a record of her death or burial place.

This concludes the information on the life of John Henry Weishuhn. The next chapter will be about John William Weishuhn, oldest son of John Henry and Jane.

JOHN WILLIAM WEISHUHN AND CATHERINE KILLMAN

 

John William WEISHUHN was born in East Florida about 1776. John and his Mother Jane apparently followed his father throughout the Revolutionary War from Florida to South Carolina, New York, and Canada, as did a lot of the military families.

John married Catherine KILLMAN born December 20, 1782 of the Township of Stamford near Niagara Falls. Catherine was born December 20, 1782, the daughter of Jacob KILLMAN, a noted Loyalist. Records of the Killman Family can be found in the local history books of the Niagara area and descendants still live in Ontario.

In 1803 Catherine petitioned the governor of Upper Canada for a grant of Crown Land under her fathers name and was granted 200 acres in the Township of Loughboro, County of Frontenac, known as Lot # 149. Under the regulations of Great Britain, all United Empire Loyalists and their children were entitled to a grant of Crown Land.

Loyalists were those persons who remained loyal to England during the Revolutionary War and were forced to give up their homes and property and flee to Canada at the end of the war. This included civilians as well as military personnel. In addition all loyalists were granted the Title of U.E. (Unity of the Empire) to be added to their surnames if they so desired. This Title also applies to all direct descendants of the Loyalist such as myself.

John and Catherine had a large family, however the number and names were never mentioned in any of John's letters. I should mention that John signed his name as William on several of his letters, which caused me a great deal of concern until I determined what was going on. Also his father, John Henry signed many or his letters as Henry Weishuhn and also his other brother Philip Henry Weishuhn signed his letters as Henry Weishuhn leaving off the Philip.

John and his family lived at the house on Weishuhn's Point until Canada and the U.S. began preparing for the War of 1812. John had continued in the Portage Business that his father had started and made many improvements in the property which will be described later.

THE WAR OF 1812 AND THE WEISHUHN FAMILY

 

When the War of 1812 started between Canada and the United States, the British increased the numbers of their troops at the various forts along the Niagara River. Because the Americans were stationed in large numbers just across the Niagara River, Several other strategic were selected for military outposts. One of these locations was at Weishuhn’s Point. Weishuhn’s Point is about one mile west of the town of Chippawa on the intersection of the Welland River and Lyons Creek. The Welland River heads to the east and empties into the Niagara River and any troop movements by the Americans would be sure to make use of the river. The selection of Weishuhn's Point for an outpost was an excellent location as it could be easily fortified since two sides faced the water and the third side faced to the rear of any attack by the Americans. In other words this plot of land was shaped like a triangle, with one side facing the Welland River, the other side facing Lyons Creek and the third side facing to the rear or west. By 1812, Weishuhn’s Point had a log house, a log barn and an apple orchard with 33 trees. There was also a nursery for new crops. One item in the house was a loom for weaving Flax. The property is described in detail in a letter and it military dispatches.

The British Government decided to build an Outpost here and negotiated with John William Weishuhn to buy about seven acres of WEISHUHN’S POINT for 784 pound sterling. The house, barn and fences were torn down and used for construction of a Blockhouse, Cannon Redoubts and Pickets.

Following are several letters written by General Gordon Drummond to Sir George Prevost the Commander in Chief of the British Forces in Canada. The letters tell about the construction of the fort at Weishuhn’s Point, and in all of the letters the fort is reference to as "WEISHUHNS" . Why this Fort was seldom mentioned in the history books is hard to understand. One thing that stands out in my mind is that the Town of Chippawa was burned to the ground by the Americans and the only place of safety would have been at WEISHUHNS, yet the place was not mentioned until the battle of Mills Creek late in the war.

 

 

THE WAR OF 1812 AND THE WEISHUHN FAMILY

 

 

Sir Gordon Drummond to Sir George Prevost (10)

District Headquarters

Niagara Falls, 11th October, 1814

Sir,-Referring to my letter of the l0th, I have the honor to acquaint your Excellency that I have received a report of General Izard's Division, (which for the last two days had been encamped at Black Rock,) having crossed to the Canada shore. I therefore hourly expect to hear of the approach of the enemy’s united force towards the Chippawa. Of the defenses, which are constructing at the mouth of that Creek, as well as of the whole of the position which the troops will have to defend, the accompanying sketch may give your Excellency some idea. I regret to state, how ever, that those defenses are by no means yet complete, tho they would be tomorrow evening, (if the enemy gives us till that time,) be in a state capable of making a very tolerable resistance.

By that time the platform in the tete de pont would be laid and the abbattis round that work and the picketing round the redoubt at WEISHUHN'S completed and four iron twelve-pounders mounted.

By the enclosed copy of a District General Order, your Excellency will be informed of the arrangement for collecting the troops. One of the principal advantages of their position behind the Chippawa is that it enables me to suffer them to remain undisturbed in their cantonments until the very moment when they may be required to act. Is soon as the enemy moves it is my intention to bring up the troops from Qweenston under the Marquess of Tweeddale, and probably the detachment from the Garrison of the forts, which Major General Stovin has been ordered to hold in readiness in the instructions of which is enclosed. With the force amounting to about ach ash f m t h w y p n o b g x c y z, I should be strongly induced to risque an attack on double their numbers should the enemy, by dividing his force, afford me a favorable opportunity. The aggregate force of the enemy I cannot estimate lower than eight thousand- deserters state it as high as ten thousand. They say that a vast number of boats are to be employed in the expedition, and that twelve pieces of artillary are already embarked.

 

 

 

THE WAR OF 1812 AND THE WEISHUHN FAMILY

 

The impressions which these vast preperations and force of the enemy together with our great numerical inferiority and the non arrival of reinforcements to this division, have produced on the minds of the inhabitants of this frontier has been such as to induce them very generally to abandon their homes and property. I have been endeavoring to induce the militia to come forward but under actual circumstances I can scarcely expect my call to be complied with to any great extent. Nor have the Indians who had returned to the Head Of The Lake or the troops going into cantonments, yet come forward again.

I have said enough to show your Excellency the difficulties of my situation, which the squadron, unless it bring me a strong reinforcement of troops will by no means relieve. I have however ceased to reckon upon any relief depending on the squadron The troops, which may arrive in it may indeed serve to repair my losses, but they cannot now possibly arrive in time to take any share in the contest which I fear this gallant little division will shortly have to maintain against I g p z w p its numbers. While I feel confident that its gallentry and efforts will be such as to call forth the applause of its King and country and every impartial military man (whatever may be the result,) I cannot but deeply lament that any circumstances should have placed this portion of the British Army in a situation such as I have described.

Lieutenant-Colonel Harvey to Lieutenant-Colonel Myers

18th October, 1914 9 P.M.

(12) My Dear Myers- On receipt of your message by Lieutenant Colonel Hagerman, the demi-brigade (100th and 89th Regiments and the 104th flank companies) were ordered across to WEISHUHNS with a six pounder.

Major Sparrow conducts them. Of these troops the 89th and 104th are directed to remain in the post, and the l00th and three companies of the 82nd and the gun to move on to your reinforcement and support. With the force you will then have at your disposal the General thinks you will be able to feel them closely, so as accurately to ascertain their strength and the direction of their movement; both points of infinite importance for us to have accurate information upon in order to regulate the force it may be necessary to detach to meet the enemy on the left bank of the Chippawa, should he dare to a empt to penetrate in the direction of "Burlington by the Beaver Dams". I need not remind you that any error we may commit in our calculations on this point may be one of the very first consequence to the safety of this division. General Drummond requests that you will act with caution by not attacking a very superior force with a vastly inferior one, but if you discover that the enemy is endeavoring to establish himself at Cooks Mills and awaiting the arrival of reinforcements, give us information by the quickest possible route, in order that a sufficient force may be detached to attack with the certainty of destroying the enemy. The gun, as the enemy cannot possibly have any, will be a host, but is not to move from WEISHUHNS without your special orders. Colonel Robertson has been detached to Brown's Bridge with his Militia, sending forward an officer to see the bridge destroyed. We shall of course be anxious for constant reports, General Stovin is ordered up with the 90th detachment, and the Marines if Sir James will spare them.

 

 

 

 

 

THE WAR OF 1812 AND THE WEISHUHN FAMILY

 

Sir Gordon Drummond to Sir George Prevost

District Headquarters

Niagara Falls, 20th October, 1814

(11) "Sir- Early yesterday morning the 6th Regiment was passed over to WEISHUHN'S to which point I myself proceeded, for the purpose of being ready to move to the attack of the enemy's force at Cooks Mills should the result of the reconnaissance which I directed Colonel Myers, Deputy- Quartermaster- General to make appear to me to render such a movement advisable. The instructions with which Colonel Myers was furnished are contained in the enclosed copy of a letter addressed to him by the Deputy- Adjutant General, Lieutenant- Colonel Harvey, by my direction and which had been executed by Colonel Meyers and the detachment placed under his command entirely to my satisfaction. The particulars of the affair your Excellency will find in Colonel Meyers report, and I have only to add that the judgement and ability displayed by Colonel Meyers in the Execution of my instructions entitle him to my best acknowledgments. His report of the gallantry and good conduct of the troops, though highly gratifying, is nothing more than might be expected. I have never known them to act otherwise. I enclose a copy of the order which I have issued on the occasion.

It appears that the force which had penetrated through almost impassable roads to Cooks Mills consisting of one Brigade, viz; the 5th, 14th, 15th, and 16th Regiments of General Izard's army, under Brigadier-General Bissell. A reinforcement of two regiments joined them this morning from General Brown's army. Feeling the difficulties of his situation, however, and the impossibility of moving even the common wagons of the country, much less guns, through such roads, and finding a powerful force in his front not only ready to meet him but anxious to entice him into the open ground, the commanding General of the American army has wisely thought proper to with draw this force, which accordingly retreated from Cooks Mills at two o'clock this afternoon, with out even destroying the Mills, although he certainly might have done so on public grounds. I must however, do him the justice to acknowledge that as far as I have observed, he has been studiously cautious by abstaining from his burning and plundering system, probably admonished by the retaliation inflicted at Washington and on the coast.

THE WAR OF 1812 AND THE WEISHUHN FAMILY

 

 

It is impossible for me to say what this army may next attempt, but his failure in his endeavor to turn my right and the great improvement I have been able to make by increasing exertions at the defenses at the Tete de pont and WEISHUHN'S, leave me far less anxious on the subject of being able successfully to repel all the enemy's attempts on this frontier than I was on his first approach, at which period I had little or nothing to aid the gallantry of the troops. The Tete de pont is now a very complete and defensible work. The redoubt at WEISHUHN'S is also in respectable state and the guns are so disposed and covered along the left bank of the Chippawa between these two posts as to render the whole position very strong, and consequently to leave the greatest part of my force disposable to oppose the enemy, should he succeed in turning my right.

In consequence of a succession of adverse and violent winds no communication has yet been had with the squadron, although they have been off the Niagara these three days General Stovin reports that they are expected to get in this evening.

The disappointment I experienced at finding that half the 90th Regiment had been left to struggle through the dreadful roads betwixt Kingston and York, at such a season and at such a crisis was greater than I can express.

I have now distinctly and earnestly to recommend to your Excellency to send up to this frontier two effective regiments in addition to the 90th, one of them to go to Burlington, where their active services will be required, and the other to Fort George to relieve and enable me to send down to the lower Province the following Regiments, viz: the Royals, Kings, 41st, 89th, l00th, 103rd, and De Watteville's (seven) and which cannot move from hence until the arrival of those destined to replace them. I shall communicate with Sir James Yeo on this subject, and urge him to apply his ships to the only service they can render us the remainder of this season.

P.S.- I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 15th.

Sir Gordon Drummond to Sir George Prevost

York, March 11, 1815.

Sir

(13) I have the honor to acknowlege the receipt of your Excellencets letter of the first instant, covering a copy of a communication from Mr. Baker, at Washington, stating that the ratification of the treaty of peace, between Great Britain and the United States of America had been exchanged at Washington on the 17th Altino.

I have given directions that the public expense be reduced as far as possible in all departments, that the progress of all works of fortification be stopped, except the indispensible military cover the for the troops which will be afforded by the completion of the barracks,

And blockhouse at Turkey Point, at WEISHUHN'S, and at Tete de Pont on the Chippawa, at Queenston Hill and at Fort George and Mississaugua. I wait your Excellencys orders relative to Fort Niagara, and Michilimackinac. I have the honor to be Sir, your Excellencys most obedient and humble servant.

Gordon Drummond

This concludes the military dispatches in regard to the fort at Weishuhn’s Point.

John William Weishuhn also took part in the War Of 1812. He had lost his right arm prior to the beginning of the war and could not enlist in the service of Great Britain as a soldier.

He was very active anyway and served as a guide for the troops. In addition he supplied drivers, teams and wagons for the military.

One of his drivers was Nathan Seneca Caswell, a deserter from the U.S.A. Another was Elijah Johnson. The wagons were used to haul ammunition and supplies to the troops and to take the wounded to hospitals that were set up in Schools, Churches, Etc.

One of the great heros of the War of 1812 was James Fitsgibbon an officer in the 49th Regiment of Foot. He wrote the following statement about John William Weishuhn.

"I certify that I knew John William Weishuhn in the year of 1813, when he was one of the most active, brave and zealous defenders of the Niagara during the campaign of that year."

Another incident that happened during the war involved his wife Catherine Killman Weishuhn. She had gone to visit her uncle, John Hodgkinson who lived at 10 Mile Creek. While enroute she was arrested by the British Army as a suspected spy. She was later released through the efforts of Colonel Clark.

While she was being detained someone stole her horse, harnesses and wagon. The wagon was recovered but the horse and harness were not.

 

 

 

 

THE WAR OF 1812 AND THE WEISHUHN FAMILY

In recent years there have been a couple of newspaper articles written about the Weishuhn Fort and the Family and they are as follows.

FROM THE NIAGARA FALLS REVIEW October 24, 1962, page 22

BY FRANCIS J. PETRIE, PRESIDENT, LUNDY'S LANE HISTORICAL SOCIETY.

SITE OF GREATER NIAGARA BOATING CLUB WAS ONCE FORTIFIED MILITARY RESERVE

This military reserve once occupied a little over seven acres of land at the junction of Lyons and Chippawa Creeks at the exact site where the Greater Niagara Boating club is located today.

This point of land was originally given by Crown grant to Captain Weishuhn for military services rendered to the British Government during the American Revolutionary War. The Weishuhns built a house were and named it Weishuhn's Point. During the War of 1812-14 a battery was built on the west bank of the Chippawa directly opposite Weishuhn's (see "site of old battery" marked at top of map) and this came to be known as Weishuhn's Battery.

When war broke out between the United States and Great Britain (including Canada) in June 1812, the main British forces in the immediate area of Chippawa, at Kings Bridge, just a little further north of the present bridge. By the end of the war in Dec. 1814, Weishuhn's Point and Battery were the main means of defense in the area destroyed Chippawa was less prominent. These facts are brought out in General Cruikshank's Documentary History of the War of 1812 on the Niagara Frontier.

Previous to October 1814 no mention is made of Weishuhn's Point or Battery. However in that month on Oct. 19, there took place the Battle of Cooks Mills, the last engagement of the war in the Niagara Peninsula. In an order from District Headquarters, Niagara Falls, Dated October 11 1814 written by Sir Gordon Drummond to Sir George Prevost, mention is made that the Piquetting around the redoubt at Weishuhn's was just about completed and that four twelve

pounders were mounted ready to meet a threatened invasion by the Americans under Generals Izard and Bissell, who were hourly expected to cross over from the US and attack and distroy a flour mill and supplies at Cooks Mills. It further states that one of the principle advantages of this position behind the Chippawa is that enabled the troops to remain undisturbed in their contonments until they were called upon to act.

THE WAR OF 1812 AND THE WEISHUHN FAMILY

Continued;

Apparently this new redoubt at Weishuhn's was less vulnerable to attack than Ft. Chippawa. The enemy did come as close as Streets Creek (Ussher' s Creek ) on October 17 but turned towards Black Creek and Thence to Cook's Mills. Her they were defeated by the British without burning the strategic mills and forced to retire to Black Creek.

A further order dated October 18, 1814, 9 p.m. from Lt. Col. Harvey to Lt. Col. Meyers tells of a demi-brigade being ordered to Weishuhn's with a six pounder under Major Sparrow. some of the brigade was to remain there and some was to go inland and help General Drummond at Cooks Mills. The report states however that the gun was to remain at Weishuhn's. There was now established between Weishuhn's and the Tete de pont a very complete and defensible work. General Drummond reported on October 23, 1814 that he believed that the Chippawa River from its mouth to Weishuhn's could be held by 1500 men with a few field pieces and that they could maintain it against any numbers the enemy could bring.

The aforementioned are the only references as to the Point and Battery being used during that war and its replacing Ft. Chippawa as the fortification along the Chippawa River.

The promotion of Henry Weishuhn, gentleman, to Ensign effective Jan. 25, 1813 of the Third Lincoln Militia, announced by General Sheaffe that same day is the only mention of the Weishuhn family in the Documentary History.

The map reproduced here is dated Sept. 24, 1861 and was drawn by F.F. Taysmore, government land surveyor, Toronto U.C. It clearly shows the extent of a little over seven acres of military reserve at that time.

During the rebellion of 1837-38, when Wm. Lyon Mackenzie and the rebels occupied Navy Island, large bodies of troops were gathered at Chippawa to oppose them but no where can I find any reference as to their using the defenses at Weishuhn's as a headquarters. This is most unusual unless they were allowed to fall into disuse and were abandoned.

The same applies to the Fenian raids of 1866 (June 1-2) Surely such a place as this military reserve as shown five years earlier would be used as a troop headquarters,

THE WAR OF 1812 AND THE WEISHUHN FAMILY

Continued

but no where can I find mention of this fact. Colonel Peacock with 400 men bivouacked at Chippawa overnight on his way to meet the Fenians but it does not state where they stayed. In fact, Colonel Peacock went the long way to Black Creek, along the river and thence inland to New Germany instead of going up the Sodom Road to the same place because the Sodom Road was in such poor state, perhaps the reserve was in the same condition.

Page's Atlas of Lincoln and Welland Counties published in 1876 shows that one Frederick Pirson owned the land occupied by the reserve and that there was a house on the property.

What became of the Weishuhns? Did they sell out to the Government for the reserve? When did the reserve go out of existence and why? These are questions I cannot answer as yet and I would certainly like to hear from anyone who could answer them. This is a scanty history of this historic place, but it must have been some place in its hey day.

Note that the Lyons Creek road still is in the same place and a bridge still crosses at the same spot as shown on the map. A recent visit to this place showed the traces of an earlier bridge immediately beside the present one. Note also the two boundary stones, steam saw mill and other buildings, long since gone. Various lengths, land heights, and water depth of the Creeks are also given.

There is much to be learned from this old map and perhaps the area could be thoroughly examined, (with the permission of the Boat Club) for traces of the old Reserve with the object in view of having the place appropriately marked with a "plaque".

THE BATTLE OF COOK'S MILLS

In recent reports of vandalism at Drummond Hill Cemetery it was erroneously stated that the Battle of Lundy's Lane, fought on Drummond Hill July 25, 1814 was the last one of the war of 1912-14. The battle of Cook's Mills was fought the following October, and though not a very severe struggle, it was important because it was the last stand made by the enemy on British soil.

Continued next page

THE WAR OF 1812 AND THE WEISHUHN FAMILY

Continued

In the early days of settlement the building of Cook's Mills, was the enterprise of two brothers, Noah and Calvin Cook. They built both a saw mill and a grist-mill which greatly benefitted the farmers in that area. Thus a small village was started on the banks of Lyons Creek which was first known as Crowland. The Village is the geographic center of Welland County and when the latter was separated from the County of Lincoln in the 1850's it was proposed to build the county courthouse there.

In comparison to the bloody action at Chippawa on the previous July 5th, and the heroic struggle at Lundy's Lane on July 25th, as well as the desperate siege of Fort Erie the previous September, the battle of Cook's Mills was of minor importance, but both the British and American officers, in describing the conflict, bear testimony that it was well contested on both sides and discreditable to neither army.

Abandoning the ineffectual siege of Fort Erie, which had cost him heavily in both men and munitions, General Sir Gordon Drummond with drew to Chippawa where he strongly entrenched himself. The battery at the end of the bridge near the mouth of the Chippawa and the redoubt which had been built on WEISHUHN'S POINT, where the Lyons Creek empties into the Chippawa, were strengthened and equipped with heavy guns, while the north bank of the Chippawa was supplied with a series of entrenchments and batteries. The infantry were cantoned along the Portage Road from Chippawa, through Bridgewater and Lundy's Lane to Stamford. At the signal of three guns fired from the high ground on Lundy's Lane, detachments from Qweenston and Fort George were to concentrate at Chippawa. General Drummond fixed his headquarters at Niagara Falls.

Against this position moved the Americans under Major General Izzard with a heavy force of fresh United States Troops All the bridges across the small streams were rebuilt which had previously been destroyed by the British in their retirement. They encamped at Street's Creek (now Ussher's Creek) two miles south of Chippawa. The opposing armies thus occupied positions very similar to those which they held before and after the Battle of Chippawa,

three months earlier.

Successive United States Generals had a plan to strike across the country to the westward and attack the British base and depot at Burlington. General Izzard now Determined to find out if this scheme was practicable.

Continued next page

THE WAR OF 1812 AND THE WEISHUHN FAMILY

Drawing back in some haste, from Streets Creek toward Fort Erie, he sent a column under Brigadier-General Bissell into the interior, along the line of Black Creek, with instructions to examine the roads and crossings on the upper reaches of Lyons Creek and the Chippawa, and to seize all the grain and provisions that might be discovered.

Cook's Mills lay directly in this line of advance. Informed by scouts on the morning of the 18th of General Bissell's, General Drummond sent out Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Meyers to find the enemy and ascertain his purpose. They were equipped with a field piece and a rocket company. They were directed to guard the crossings of the Chippawa and to destroy Brown's

Bridge.

Meyers detachment, crossing at WEISHUHN'S POINT proceeded up the Lyons Creek with some difficulty, for rains had rendered the rude track through the forest almost impassable. Arriving at Misener's, seven miles above Chippawa, Meyers learned that the enemy had taken up their position at Cook's Mills, still three miles distant. He established his headquarters at Misener's and sent the Glengarry Corps forward to reconnoiter. During the night they encountered a strong advance picket of the enemy and after a sharp exchange retreated. The next morning, October 19, the enemy were found to be in a strong situation along a ravine running down to the creek and well covered by woods. Lieutenant Colonel Battersby led the British advance and promptly engaged the United States force along their front, at the same time sending some companies by a detour to the right, to turn their left wing. The plan was successful and the enemy’s light troops were driven in, both sides firing heavily and sustaining numerous casualties.

Bissell not to be outdone, sent part of his force across the creek to attack the British left, and a spirited encounter ensued in that quarter. the enemy did not have any artillery while the British were materially assisted by their field gun and rockets.

Neither force advanced from their position in the woods and eventually the contest died out, with both sides r retiring a short distance. The following day Bissell retired first distroying a quantity of grain which he had captured This retrograde movement saved him from another attack by the British. He reported to Izzard the terrible state of the country roads, the destruction of all bridges, and the presence of a strong British force between him the upper crossings of the Chippawa, whereupon Izzard abandoned the idea of an advance in that direction and continued his advance to Fort Erie and eventually to Buffalo.

THE WAR OF 1812 AND THE WEISHUHN FAMILY

 

In the Battle of Cooks Mills the U.S. forces numbered about 1100 men, with the British having several hundred less. The British had only one man killed and thirty five wounded, while the U.S. lost thirteen men with fifty-four wounded. This battle was not a very great military but it did put a stop to the foreword movement of the invasion of the Niagara Peninsula and hasten the

departure of the enemy from Canadian soil.

After the end of the War of 1812, John William and his family continued to live in Willoughby Township. On April 28, 1824 he wrote the following letter. (16)

"To his Excellency, Sir Perigrins Maitland H.C.B.

Lieutenant Governor of the Province of Upper Canada

and Major General commanding his Majestys Forces therin.

The Petition of John W. Weishuhn of the Township of Willoughby in the district of Niagara, respectfully herewith.

That your humble petitioner is a native of East Florida from whence he removed with his parents into this Province thirty five years ago, when a child and remained therin permanently every since.

That your humble petitioner having tendered all the assistance in his power toward the defense of this colony from the beginning to the ending of the last war, on the Niagara Frontier; Having clung to the troops as well as the Militia on all occasions as a useful and intelligent guide, not withstanding the loss of his right arm which he accidently lost prior to the declaration of hostilities, having a large family residing with him at Willoughby, and not having heretofore made application for land.

Your petitioner therefore humbly beseeches your Excellency to make him a grant of such an allotment of waste land, as your wisdom may seem right.

And as in duty bound

I will ever pray

One other item that was probably about her in later years, appears in the book "The History of Middlesex County Ontario". The book states that in 1875, James Alexander WEISHUHN and several others who participated in the War of 1812 are to be honored on the steps of the London, Ontario City Hall and to receive a Pension Check. The book further states that James is to ill to attend the ceremony and is staying at his sisters house in London, Ontario and his son was there to represent him.

JAMES ALEXANDER WEISHUHN

1790-1876

 

James Alexander WEISHUHN was another son of John Henry and Jane WEISHUHN. He was my Great, Great, Grandfather and he was born at Newark, Upper Canada, now Niagara Falls, Ontario.

He moved with his parents to the Township of Willoughby before 1796. Willoughby Township was about three miles above Niagara Falls and the Town of Chippawa is in Willoughby Township.

James married Elizabeth Jane SHAINHOLTS, a daughter of Martin Shainholts.. The Shainholts Family also lived close by in Willoughby Township. I want to note that Shainholts is an anglicized German name of Schornholtz and means "beautiful wood". Elizabeth was also a sister of Ruth Shainholts who married James oldest brother, Philip Henry WEISHUHN.

Elizabeth was born in the U.S. in 1791 in Pennsylvania.

It is not known whether James and Elizabeth were married before or after the War of 1812. In the book, "The History of Middlesex County, Ontario", it is mentioned that James Alexander WEISHUHN from Mt. Brydges served under Francis Emerick of Napier during the War of 1812 and was at the Battles of Lundys Lane and Beaver Dam.

The book also stated that James was given 100 acres of Crown Land on October 26, 1824 for his service in the war. The land was located in Caradoc Township of Middlesex County, Ontario on Lot # 14 of Concession # 3.

In 1842 the Canadian Census of Middlesex County, Westminster Township, lists James and his family living about one mile west of the Village of Glanworth on Lot # 19 of Concession # 7. A search of the land records did not show that the Weishuhns owned the land, so they were probably tenants. I want to mention that the census records list head of household only, without listing other family names. Also the records are on microfilm and were very difficult to read. It did appear that there were seven people living in the house I also want to point out that Canadian birth, deaths and marriage records were not recorded by the provinces until 1869, and finding these records are very difficult.

JAMES ANDREW WEISHUHN

James Andrew WEISHUHN was born on October 31, 1856 in Lobo Township of Middlessex County, Ontario. Lobo Township is south and west of London, Ontario about 20 miles. He was the first child born to Henry W. WEISHUHN and Mariah MARKLE.

McCURDY on November 12, 1927 in Turner, Michigan after a courtship that lasted for many years. Walt and Maude lived in Allen Park, Michigan for several years while he worked for the Ford Motor Company in the steel rolling mill. The basement of his house in Allen Park was a favorite meeting place for the men in the family at holiday gatherings, as Walt usually had a batch of "Home brew" available for sampling. In the meantime Maude would be upstairs cooking up chicken and dumplings for everyone to stuff themselves with.

Walt and Maude later bought a farm near Prescott, Michigan and Walt would work at Fords during the week, and drive "Up North" on week-ends to farm. I remember an incident that happened to us on one of those trips when the left back wheel of his Model A Ford came off in Waterford, Michigan and rolled down the road, hit the steps of an old hotel, bounced up in the air. high and landed on the roof of a Chevrolet, crushing the top. I also remember that Walt and my father knew every "watering hole" between Detroit and Prescott and they had many friends that they had to stop and say, "Hello", to.

Another thing about Walt was that he could dance the "Irish Jig" very good, and whenever ne and his cousin Charley WEISHUHN got together, you could expect to see some good jigging. Yes, the WEISHUHN's of those days were fun loving people.

Walt never lived to retire as he died in his sleep on October 1, 1941 in Detroit, Michigan. He was only fifty years, twenty one days old at the time of his death. His body was taken "Up North" to his farm for funeral services and he is buried in Richland Cemetery near Prescott. He was a Mason and belonged to Lodge # 471 in Dearborn, Michigan.

Maude remained on the farm for a few years and then moved to Flint where she remained until she also died in her sleep on December 11, 1965 at age 73. Maude is buried next to Walt in Richland Cemetery.

IDA CATHERINE WEISHUHN AND DAVID SHOWERS

AND THEIR DESCENDANTS

Ida Catherine WEISHUHN, was the second child and the first daughter born to Henry Weidner WEISHUHN and Mariah MARKLE. She was born on July 3, 1858 in Lobo Township of Middlesex County in Ontario, Canada. Ida married David SHOWERS on November 8, 1878 in Bay County. (Now Arenac County). Dave and Ida were married by George CASCALLEN and witnessed by Lyman ALLEN and Ann CASCALLEN.

Dave was born on August 3, 1850, and his parents were; Michael SHOWERS and Hannah MacPHERSON. There is some confusion about his birthplace, as the 1900 Michigan census record listed his birthplace as Canada, and that he became a naturalized U.S. citizen, however his death certificate states that he was born in Michigan. After examining the conflicting documents, I believe that he was born in Canada and came to the U.S. in 1917, and his father was born in Pennsylvania and his mother was born in Canada in the year of 1816. Dave and Ida first lived in Standish Township, and then to Clayton Township in Arenac County near Melita where they lived on a farm until about 1915, when they moved. to another farm just north of Lansing, Michigan. Ida died in Sparrow Hospital In Lansing on March 15, 1928 from heart failure, and is buried in Markham Cemetery (Also known as Grovenburg Cemetery) in Ingham County, near Lansing on March 17, 1928. Ida was 60 years, 4 months, and 17 days old at the time of her death. Dave suffered a stroke just weeks after Ida died, and he passed away on April 21, 1928. at age 77 years, 8 months, and 18 days. He is also buried in Markham Cemetery.

Ida and Dave had seven children, and they and their families are listed below;

 

 

Dave had a brother Jim.

Stella married Don McKAY. Don was born in Bayport, Michigan on 1879. Don was the brother of Dr. Max McKAY and Dr. Pingree McKAY, Optometrists, from Bay City. He was the owner of Special Electric Lighting Company in Detroit. His company provided lighting for ths Michigan State Fairs, Auto shows, and other exhibitions held in the Detroit area. His company also installed the first electric traffic signal system in Detroit. In addition he was involved in the development of the dial system used on the telephones for many years. It has been said that Don was listed in Who’s Who in America in the 30's.

Stella never had any children of her own, but was a very generous, helpful person, and helped to raise several of the less fortunate family members when they lived in Detroit. Don drove a large Pierce-Arrow Sedan, and I can remember them picking me up and taking me out to dinner several times when I was a young boy. Don and Stella moved to Dallas, Texas about 1950 as Stella had developed arthritis and they felt that a warmer climate would be better for her to live in. Don became ill and suffered for years before he died on 1961. Has body was returned to Michigan for burial in Elmlawn Cemetery in Bay City. Don was an active Mason throughout his lifetime. Stella is now living in the Convalescent Center in Dallas and is very feeble at this time.

 

 

This concludes the information on Don McKAY and Stella SHOWERS.

RICHARD NEVILLE WEISHUHN AND CARRIE ESTELLE ROBERTS

AND THEIR DESCENDANTS

Richard Neville WEISHUHN, was the fourth child and third son of Henry W. WEISHUHN and Mariah MARKLE.

Dick was born at Melrose, in Lobo Township, Middlesex County, Ontario, Canada, on September 29, 1862. He married Carrie Estelle ROBERTS on March 11, 1884 in Prescott, Michigan. Their marriage was the first white couple recorded in Prescott. Prescott was just becoming a village as it had been a lumber camp up to this time. The marriage was performed by Mortimer NOBLE, Justice of the Peace. Witnesses were James GREGG (soon to be Dick’s brother-in-law) and Katie GILROY.

Carrie was born on June 25, 1867 in Belmont, New York.

In the 1900 Michigan Census, Dick and Carrie were living in Mason Township of Arenac County. The 1903 Plat Plan of Arenac County shows the family living on the southwest corner of County Line and Black Rd. The family later moved to Prescott where Dick owned the Richland and the Weishuhn Hotel. He also owned a hotel in Hale called the Hale-Lake-House. He also had a store and a bar in Prescott about 1910-1915. In the 1920's when all the lumber had been cut down, the hotel business slumped. Also people were driving cars now and not riding the trains. Either way, the train dead ended in Prescott and Dick’s hotel was just across the tracks so business was good until the lumber was all cut. Dick and family moved to Bay City, Michigan in 1924. Dick and his sons Harvey, and Cloy went into the auto repair business on Madison Avenue and called the business, Standard Auto Repair. After a few years, the partnership split up and Cloy opened up a Pontiac Dealership in Kawkawlin, Michigan. Uncle Dick and Aunt Carrie lived in a large house at 1200 Madison Ave., and it was a favorite, stopping off place for Weishuhn's heading north from Detroit, Flint, etc.

RICHARD NEVILLE WEISHUHN, CONTINUED

Uncle Dick was in the hotel business for many years. He had a hotel in Hale, Michigan in 1901 and also one at Prescott, Michigan. He traveled back and forth by horse and buggy. His first hotel was a wooden structure (called the Hanlon House) that he bought from Peter HANLON, the father of his son-in-law William HANLON. This hotel was across the street from the rail road station and it burned down. He also had a brick hotel at a later date in Prescott, followed by a grocery store. Florence WEISHUHN told me that uncle Dick had a pair of pet goats that had the run of his place, and they would go into the hotel after her husband Harvey when he was a boy. The old billy goat once butted one of the girls serving the customers and she spilled her tray of dishes. Uncle Dick finally took the goats out in the country and got rid of them.

ISAAC WILLIAM WEISHUHN

Isaac William WEISHUHN was the fourth son and the fifth child born to Henry W. WEISHUHN and Mariah MARKLE.

He was born on December 20, 1866 in Lobo Township of Middlesex County, in Ontario, Canada.

He moved to Michigan from Canada with his parents as a youth of fifteen. He worked in the woods as a lumberjack in the winter months and helped on his parents farm during the summer. The 1900 Michigan Census Report states that he is a Farmer living with his sister, Rosetta and her husband, John THOMPSON in Clayton Township of Arenac County. The report also states that he moved to Michigan in 1876 and that he was a naturalized citizen of the U.S.

Ike did not like the cold climate of Michigan and he moved to Stuart, Florida in about 1911, where he lived the rest of his life. His sister Jennie and her husband and family of Jim GREGG also lived in Stuart and they were constant companions living side by side most of the time. Ike also homesteaded the north tip of Jupiter Island, which is about a mile across St. Lucies Inlet from Stuart. The homestead was approved by President Woodrow WILSON and is as follows;

" GAINSVILLE, 010265

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

TO ALL TO WHOM THESE PRESENTS SHALL COME, GREETING:

WHEREAS, A certificate of the Registrar of the Land Office at Gainsville, Florida, has been deposited in the General Land Office whereby if appears that pursuant to the Act of Congress of May 20, 1862, "To Secure Homestead to Actual Settlers on the Public Domain, " and the acts supplemental thereto, the claim of Isaac W. Weishuhn has been established and duly comsumated, in conformity to law, for the lots, one, two, three, and four of section twenty one and the first one of section twentyeight, south of range forty two, east of the Tallahassee Meridian, Florida, containing one hundred thirty one and forty seven hundredth acres, according to the official plat of the survey of the said land, returned to the ---(99-170)--- General Land Office by the Surveyor General.

NOW KNOW YE; That there is, therefore granted by the United States unto the said claiment the tract of land above described; to have and to hold the said tract of land with appurtenances thereof, unto the said claiment forever.

continued

ISAAC WILLIAM WEISHUHN

IN TESTIMONY THEREOF, I Woodrow Wilson, President of the United States of America, have caused these letters to be made Patent, and the Seal of the General Land Office to be hereunto affixed.

GIVEN UNDER MY HAND at the City of Washington, the sixth day of September, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and seventeen, and of the independence of the United States, one hundred and forty second.

By the President, Woodrow Wilson

By M.P. LeRoy, Secretary

SEAL Recorder of the General Land Office.

Recorded; Patent Number 599314, filed February 14, 1918

at 9:10 A. M. Recorded in Deed Book #99, page 169.

The above Land Patent was one of many land transactions of Ike WEISHUHN. Between 1917 and 1956, Ike owned twelve other parcels of land in the Stuart area.

Ike built a house and a Fish Camp on Jupiter Island and farmed several acres. Wealthy vacationers from the north would stay at his Fish Camp and he would take them fishing in the area. He had a one cylinder gas engine boat that he used to travel back and forth from Stuart to Jupiter Island. Also family members have told me that he had a knack for growing fine vegetables on his homestead.

Ike was a man of strong likes and dislikes. If he liked you, he would do anything for you. As an example he had tenants who he liked, so he didn’t bother to collect the rent. On the other hand, family members have stopped to see him and he told them to leave.

He wrote to his niece, Lena (WEISHUHN) McKAY and her husband Don and asked them to come to Florida, which they did. Don took a job in Stuart and they stayed there three years. Other family members who lived in Stuart at some time or other were Richard (Uncle Dick) WEISHUHN and his family.

Another incident that I want to mention is that he liked to fish and he was with his nephew, Sammy LANE in a flat bottom boat and a large Manatee (Water Cow) came up under the boat and upset it, dumping Ike and Sammy in the water.

 

 

 

ISAAC WILLIAM WEISHUHN

Ike never married.

 

Ike contracted Cancer in his later years and suffered very much. The Cancer was in his Throat and Pancreas and he died in Martin County Hospital on October 18, 1956. His money was all gone and he was forced to give his property to the county to cover his medical expenses. He is buried in the WEISHUHN Plot in Fernhill Cemetery at Stuart.

She was born on October 4, 1864 in Lobo Township of Middlesex County in Ontario, Canada. Jennie married James Franklin GREGG on December 30, 1882 in Au Gres, Michigan. The ceremony was performed by A.E. KEMP, a Methodist Pastor and witnessed by Ellie GREGG and Vinee SCHLOSSER. Both Jim Gregg and Jennie lived in Maple Ridge at the time of their marriage. Jim was born in Mansfield, Ohio on April 12, 1858 and was the son of a Preacher. He is also said to have a twin brother named Colson who had a club foot. Jim had attended college for three years and was employed as a school teacher in Arenac County. Jim also was a surveyor and worked for the lumber companies that were clearing the land in northern Michigan. Jim and Jennie moved to Dupont, Florida before 1900, and the 1900 Florida Census Report listed Jim as a railroad fireman on a private railroad. It was known that he went to Florida to work in the lumbering industry. Jim and family later moved to Stuart, Florida where they stayed for many years. Jim was appointed as the first city clerk of Stuart. Jim suffered from rheumatism in his feet which he blamed on the cold wet woods of the north. In later years he was in so much pain that he could not walk and he had to use rocking chairs to slide around the house. Also the house was a two story, and he had to be carried up the stairs.

Jennie was a wonderful person and helped anyone in any way that she could. She was a midwife and helped deliver many of the residents of Stuart. She also went door to door selling Real Silk Hose, and Mrs Bradleys Face Wash to help with the income. She let her hair grow and it was so long that it touched the floor. Jennie contracted Cancer of the uterus and suffered for many months before she died on April 1, 1925. Jim died from a stroke on December 9, 1928 and both are buried in the Weishuhn Plot in Fernhill Cemetery.

Jim and Jennie had two children and they and their family are as follows.

"Thomas Melrose was instantly killed Sunday afternoon when a tank which he was examining exploded, the end of the tank striking him in the head.

He had cleaned the tank last week with gasoline, then rinsed it with soap-suds and closed it up, intending to use it for an oil tank. It was supposed to have been tested by throwing lighted matches and burning paper into it. While showing the tank to Henry Selman Sunday, he removed the cap and lighted a match for the purpose of looking inside the tank, it is thought. There seems to have been enough gasoline left in the tank to evaporate and fill it under the influence of the hot sun during the latter part of the week, and when it was opened and the flame of the match held near, the explosion resulted. The end was blown out cutting the unfortunate man’s throat and face badly, and then throwing him to the ground. The force of the fall broke his arm, and he was probably extinct when the body struck the ground.

The explosion was heard all over town, and Mrs. J. F. Brown was the first to arrive, and she, aided by Mr. Selman, washed off the blood which was gushing from his eyes, ears, nose, and mouth, and from the severed jugular vein. More help arrived and the body was carried into the house. Dr. Bovee was called, and after examination, stated that death was practically instantaneous. The explosion broke a window in the house and jarred the surrounding buildings. Mrs. Melrose and the children were sitting within four feet of the tank when it exploded, were practically uninjured excepting a few slight burns about the face.

Just how the explosion occurred will probably always remain a mystery, as the tank was supposed to be entirely empty."

Thomas Melrose Obituary read as follows:

"Thomas Melrose was born in Frazer Township, Bay County, Michigan, March 7, 1887 and died at his home in Prescott Sunday, May 2, 1915. He came to Prescott when about 13 years of age and lived here every since. He was married about five years ago to Miss Francis Thompson of Maple Ridge. Two children were born to this union, both of whom survive him. He leaves to mourn his loss, besides his widow and children, his father and step-mother, two sisters, three brothers and other distant relatives and friends. The funeral was held from Baptist Church, Wednesday afternoon May 6, Reverend D. Martin having charge. Undertaker Lutie took charge of the remains after the service, and interment was made in Richland Cemetery.
