53 Found the following obituary on Ancestry.com. It's from the Pella Chronicle, Marion Co., Iowa.

Mrs. Josiah Adams

Pella, April 11.- Mrs. Celia Graham was born in Pickaway county, Ohio, Oct. 17, 1813, and died in Pella, Iowa, Marion County, April 9, 1900, aged 86 years, 5 months, and 22 days.
Early in life she experienced religion and United with the Methodist Episcopal church, of which communion she remained a faithful member through all the years of pilgrimage. For more than three score and 10 years she walked in the faith and comfort of the gospel, having respect unto the recompense of the reward. March 7, 1833, she was united in marriage with Josiah Adams. For 65 years they journeyed together, sharing each others joys and sorrows. Mr. Adams died two years ago.
They were among the pioneers of Marion county, having settled at Knoxville in 1852. At that time there was no railroad west of the Mississippi river, and only a small part of the young state was occupied by settlers.
The last few years of her life were years of deep affliction. Intellectual clouds and darkness were about her, but to her doubtless was verified the promise; "When thou passest through the waters I will be with thee; and through the rivers,they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle up to thee. Fear not, for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by name; thou art mine,"
Her funeral services were conducted at the family home by Rev. J.C. Kendrick, of the M.E. church, assisted by Rev. Peck, of the Baptist church. Her remains were conveyed to the family burying ground near Durham.
Hattie and Maggie Adams desire to express their gratitude to the kind friends who so nobly assisted them during the recent affliction and death of their mother. Words seem formal but bereaved hearts appreciate and extend to all grateful remembrance.

Josiah Adams

Died,at his home in Pella, Sunday evening,March 27,1898, Josiah Adams.

He was born in the state of Delaware on June 5,1807, and was there-fore 90 years, 9 months, and 23 days old at the time of his death.

When 8 years of age he with is parents moved to Ross county, Ohio, near Chillicothe. Here he grew to manhood, and at the age of twenty-six married Miss Celia Graham, March 7, 1833. About 1848 they moved to New London,Henry County, Iowa and in 1852 moved to Marion county, Iowa, In 1835 he became identified with the Methodist Episcopal church and was one of the pioneer workers of the Salem class near Durham. He was a great advocate for the Sunday school.

His wife was converted and united with the M.E. church in early woman-hood, and in about one year after marriage Bro. Adams was converted and very soon afterward became a member of the same church.

We can for a moment allow our minds to follow Bro. Adams from early Manhood down along the years to the time he was called away. We can say in all confidence that no more striking instance of sterling charactor, strong mindeness, strict integrity and honesty of purpose has been presented to our notice. These characteristics presented themselves in all his dealings with his neighbors and all others with whom he came in contact, and as steadfastness of purpose and determined conscientious uprightness stood out prominently in all pertaining to worldly pursuits, so the same traits manifested themselves in relation to his religious sentiments; and for all the years from the date of his conversion down to the time that afflictions came upon him, the church never found a more constant attendant, a truer friend or a more cheerful supporter. For many long years, not-withstanding the perplexities, responsibilities and discouragements of a pioneer life, he never lost sight of the church work that fell to his share, but on the other hand with a persistence that called forth the respect and admiration of both church member and non-professor alike, he steadily and without shrinking discharged those duties, and with a trusting heart was even ready to exclaim, "I know in whom I have believed!"

His long life reaches back through some of the most stirring times of our republic, having had a father in the war of 1812, father and brother in the war with Mexico, and three sons in the union ranks during the late rebellion.

Eleven children, four daughters and seven sons, were born to this worthy couple, of whom two sons and one daughter have preceded him to the other shore. His aged and loving companion survives him, being now eighty-four. Their married life has been a little more than sixty-five years.

The children who survive him are as follows; Wm. Adams, Garden Grove,Iowa; Joseph C. Adams, Oregon; John W. Adams, Monroe,Iowa; Hattie C.Adams,of Pella,Iowa; Mrs. Henrietta Miller, Knoxville,Iowa; Peter McVay Adams, Carus Oregon; and Maggie Adams, Pella,Iowa.

For sometime past he had requested that the text used should be taken from Job 14-14; "All the days of my appointed time I wait till my changes comes," and the hymns shold be "Nearer my god to thee," "Jesus Lover of my soul," and "Rock of ages."
The funeral was conducted at the residence March 29, by his pastor, Rev. C.H. Westfalt, assisted by Dr. A.B. Chaffee, Dr. Stoddard, and Rev. C.L. Coster.

The interment took place in the family lot in Eureka Cemetery.

Berrington, George John (I565)
61 Graduated in 1947 from South High School in Salt Lake City. According to Wikipedia:

"A high school no longer extant—South High School, on State Street—once served the southern part of Salt Lake City. The district built this school during the depression to accommodate about 1000 students from the private LDS High School, which closed in 1931. Located in what became a business district by the 1980s, falling enrollment prompted the district to close South High after the 1987-1988 school year. The district donated the school building to the Salt Lake Community College."

In his High School Annual he wrote his address: 1216 Charlton Ave.

After graduating, he entered the Army. After that he attended college.

Owned and operated a service station in Salt Lake City. Paul, Waneta and Paulette moved to California in 1958 where he became an aerospace engineer. Worked for Litton for a number of years. Invented a device that deployed the reentry parachute for the Apollo spacecraft. On the design team for the ring laser gyro.

62 Having trouble finding her birth record in the Danish archives. The information I have came from Marsha Buck Allen which she got while someone was helping her in the Family History Library. The original source is unknown.

After looking through several pages of birth and confirmation records from Mårup Parish, I suspect that her middle name is really Marie and that her father's first name is probably Jens. (Jens is the Danish version of John.)

68 He was born in Lisburn, (Northern) Ireland. As a young man, he came to Paris to visit his sisters who were attending a boarding school there. He met and fell in love with Marie Anna Labbé, who owned the school. They were separated during the Siege of Paris in 1871, she in Paris and he in London. He helped send supplies into Paris by hot air baloon. The 1871 census shows he was living with his parents in St. Martin, Westminster and it shows his occupation as "porter, out of employ." In the next two or three years, Thomas went back to Paris and married Marie. He taught English in Paris. Thomas and Marie had four children there.

He then married Bathilde (per a note I received from Jane Bathilde Robinson on one of the Ancestry forums - I have no proof of this).

He died at 12 Beckwith Rd., Dulwich, (South London), England. His daughter Jeanne was living at the same address. His occupation was listed as "former commercial traveler."

Notes of Marie Pattison

Death certificate of Thomas Stannus Pattison 
Pattison, Thomas Stannus (I60)
69 Her family moved to Fillmore from Ohio when she was three years old. McGregor, Isabel McIntyre (I10)
70 Her husband's death record shows her as being 71 in 1883. This is consistent with her age of 60 in the 1871 census. She must have been born in 1811 or 1812.
When her daughter Isabelle died in 1902 she was living in the 5th arrondissement at Gay-Lussac 44.
Notes about Isabella and her husband Thomas Pattison, written by Marie Pattison (Mouchet Randall), their grandaugter. (The notes were addressed to her son, F. Paul Mouchet.)

My grandmother Isabelle Greene was an American born Quaker. Her parents lived in Philadelphia and I am very sorry I never inquired about the dates of their birth. (inserted text: Grandfather Thomas Pattison born in 1802, Grandmother Isabella Green born in 1821-your great great grandparents.)
My great grandfather was a wealthy cloth merchant. He and his wife lived in a large house there and were sincere Quakers. I think my grandmother told me that her mother died when she was fourteen and she kept house for her father until she was about 24 or more when he died. Every year he went to England and Ireland to buy cloth, the very best, and when his daughter was old enough she shared those trips by sailboats. Great grandpa Greene relaxed en route and Grandma packed trunks with worldly clothes, even ball dresses. She told me that one trip was especially rough and tough and they were shipwrecked not far from an island (I forget the name). They were saved and luckily there was a British Consul there. The luggage of course was lost but Isabel went back to the beach to find a trunk of hers dancing merrily on the waves and while she watched breathlessly a huge wave cast it up on the sand. It was waterproof and when the Counsul gave a ball for them before their departure, she was the only one wearing her own ball dress and was easily the belle of the ball. I was quite startled when Granny told me it was the best trip of all! Young and a pretty new dress! No, people have not changed much at heart.

My grandmother, after her father's death, became his wealthy heiress. Unfortunately, being a Quaker, he had made a will in her favor but a trusty friend, also a Quaker, disappeared with all cash of which he alone knew of and could not be traced, so Isabel Greene inherited the house and all furnishings and the money left in the house for current expenses. She wrote a very well to do relation cousin who lived in Ireland and following her advice sold everything and went to live with her. She met Thomas Stanus Pattison who was a civil engineer at the time and they were married. T.S. Pattison was outstanding in his profession and later on had an offer to manage the enormous estate of a wealthy landowner. Of this marriage several children were born. Those who lived and which I knew were:

Sarah (oldest) married the lawyer Mr. Hurel.
Marthe - never married.
Lucie - never married
Isabelle married Paul d' Hennin
Thomas Stanus, my father, married Marie Anna Labbé.

When my grandfather retired with a handsome pension he took his family to London where they made their home till they moved to Paris. I was quite small, but I remember that they had a large corner apartment with a balcony. Avenue de al Grande Armie which at that time was very fashionable. I remember visiting them and as I had not brought my doll with me she made one with the little fireside broom. She used to bounce me on her knee saying "Ride a cock horse to Brandbury Cross." I remember that on one occasion we went to wish them good-bye. We were going to the seaside. As we reached the street, waiting for the fiacre (cab) we looked up and waved at them. I felt "funny"; we got in the cab and I became violently sick to my father's great disgust. He asked Maman if I always had to do that to which she replied that I was very sensitive and became upset. (Tableau de famille.)

One day one bell rang and Maman opened the door to a cousin who was crying and saying that grandfather was dying. Then I remember the day of the funeral and someone lifting me to place a bunch of violets, his favorite flowers, near his hands. The place was dark and I had to keep quiet because grandfather was sleeping. I was five years of age and he was eighty. He must have been born in 1802. It is very odd that I do not remember him at all nor ever seeing him alive. I remember the others at that time. My mother loved him and he was very fond of her. He was peaceful and gentle, but once or twice he had become very angry. My mother said it was a "sainte colire" holy anger. They were both poets. He had a small book of verse published and when I was grownup my aunts showed it to me and one was "to my granddaughter." I was to have it but I came to America and forgot about it. I guess I am very sorry.

In the French naturalization papers for Thomas Stannus Pattison, Isabella Green is listed as having been born in 1809, but her age listed in the 1871 British census would make her birth year about 1811.

The 1871 census lists her name as Isabella Johnson Pattison. The Quaker records of her children's births also list her as Isabella Johnson. There are two interesting possibilies. Perhaps she had a husband named Johnson prior to marrying Thomas Pattison. Or maybe Johnson is her mother's maiden name. 
Green, Isabella Johnson (I157)
71 Her obituary confirms her location of birth, but says she was born in 1820. Anderson, Margaret (I63)
72 I found the following note on Margaret Dalzell's family group sheet from Luceal McGregor Lewis' files: "widow one son William." So far I have not found any other information about her, other than her marriage and death records. Neither one gives the name of her parents.

Update 11/2014 - Ella Berrington's birth record was corrected and shows Margaret's last name as Dalzell.

Alternate spellings of her maiden name: Dozell, Dalzel, Bozell

Note that James Armstrong Thome was a well-known anti-slavery Presbyterian minister in Cleveland at the time Joseph and Margaret were married. This is probably the same J. A. Thome who signed their marriage certificate.

78 John Everett first appears in the Dedham 1662 tax lists. He is first styled captain in the town records in 1693 and during King William's War he was called into active service to command a company of men stationed in new Hampshire and Maine to protect the inhabitants from the Indians. His will was dated 8/16/1710 and proved 7/7/1715 (Suffolk Wills 3668). (Source: The William A. Amsberry and Related Families.) Everett, John (I78)
79 Joseph came to the states in November of 1851 with his sister Mary and Mary's two children. They joined Mary's husband, John Thompson. Joseph married John's sister Mary Thompson on March 10, 1858. They had one child: Charles. Mary died in 1862. On March 02, 1864 Joseph married Margaret Dalzell, who was a widow with one child name William. The 1880 census shows them living at 111 Birch St. (now West 50th St., between Franklin and Bridge) with Margaret and 5 more children: Hattie, Samuel, John, Jessie, and Ella. Joseph remained close to John and Mary Thompson and in 1880 helped them build a log home in Middelburg Heights, Ohio. The 1910 census shows him living with his daughter Ella and her husband George Austin. He died in 1916 in Middleburg.

Note: Below date of birth shows as May 11, 1828, but his death certificate says May 11, 1827.

I found the following in Luceal McGregor Lewis' files:

Luceal's notes:
I do not know who G.H. is. This paper was with the ones that Frank Berrington had written. Sounds as though there were two children in Joseph Parrish Berrington’s marriage to Mary Thompson. I wonder if she died of childbirth. They were married 4 years according to the paper written by Frank and he married again very shortly.

The paper:
"Joseph P. Berrington" was born May 11, 1828 at Bedfordshire, England - and passed away January 12, 1916 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ella Austin.
Mr. Berrington came to this country while a very young man and made his home with a sister who resided at Middleburg, Ohio, and while there he assisted them in the clearing of their land.
In the year 1858, he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Thompson, who died four years later. Two children were born to them, one of whom survives, Charles Berrington, of Cleveland, Ohio.
After four years, Mr. Berrington again married to Miss Margaret Dozell of Cleveland, and resided for twenty some years at West 50th Street, Cleveland. Five children were born of this marriage, all of whom are living.
Mrs. Hattie McGregor of Fillmore, California.
Mr. Samuel Berrington of Cleveland, Ohio.
Mr. John Berrington of Cleveland, Ohio.
Mrs. Jessie Kinghorn of Cleveland Ohio, and
Mrs. Ella Austin at whose home the father resided for the last fifteen years, and it was from there he passed into the "Great Beyond."
Sixteen grand-children and four great grand children survive this much beloved grand-father.
He was an example of patience to all those who watched him in his last days - when he sat in the open, watching the birds, and gathering all the happiness he could from nature and his surroundings.
His appreciation of little courtesies were very great, and although he did not hear all that was spoken to him, his face beamed with joy when there was an expression he could catch and respond to.
He was to be about with activity until four days before he peacefully slept away.
At all times since he has made his home with this daughter was he given most tender love and watchful care by her and the kind husband and daughter, who spared nothing to give him all the comforts they were able to bestow upon him, sharing all that they possessed with him; and with all this, there was that kind of affection that helps lighten the load when the years grew large in number.
While these changes seem hard to meet, may we be able to see beyond it that God's Love still protects and cares for those passed from us, - "as he did before," and will guide us into paths of peace that passeth all understanding.

82 Lacy was one of eight children born to Byron and Rebecca Shaffer. She died in childbirth and the three youngest children, Lacy, Maybell and Ralph, were placed in the McKinley Home for Orphans in Los Angeles for a few years. Lacy said that his father got the kids out of the orphanage as soon as they were old enough to work. Byron sent for a mail order bride and after they were married he brought Lacy, Mabell and Ralph home. Byron then went off to Alaska to seek his fortune in the gold rush there.

Lacy married Isabel and they lived in Fillmore, California. Louise was born in Fillmore in 1916.

In 1919, shortly after the Owens Valley aqueduct brought water to the San Fernando Valley, the couple moved from Fillmore by horse and wagon to their newly purchased ranch on Mason Avenue in Owensmouth (now known as Canoga Park).

Although he only had a 6th grade education, he had a lot of knowledge. When he wanted to do taxidermy he got a book from the library and figured out how to do it. He designed a horse-powered threshing machine to thresh beans. When some perch came into the bathtub from the aqueduct water he built a fish pond for them and they grew the fish to full size.

The ranch was farmed until 1955, at which time it was sold for housing development, including the area of Sunnybrae Elementary School. Lacy still kept a grape vineyard on the remaining land. They sold the grapes to the Isabella grape juice company. In the 1960s their vineyard was too isolated from other agriculture and he was unable to sell the grapes.

84 Leon is living at Avenue Daumesnil 46, Paris. Marie is living with her father at Rue Bergere 9. Family F1577
85 Lewis was adopted. One family story says that Lewis was the product of an affair between Helen and another man. The 1900 and 1910 census seem to support this. In 1900 Helen ("Ellen") was shown as not having any children. In 1910 she was shown as the mother of one child, still alive and the relationship of Lewis to Ed Roberts is adopted.

Ed Martin Roberts and Helen Bagley were listed as parents on the record of Lewis' marriage to Clara. He wrote a sports column for a Grand Island Nebraska newspaper, and later for the Long Beach Independant.

The California death index on Ancestry.com lists his year of birth as 1904.

Keller, Henry II (I42)
95 Nancy Kingsbury was the second wife of Caleb Baldwin. His first marriage was with Phoebe Gaylord, of Newburgh.

When the Mormon excitement was at its height, and its teachings were being discussed pro and con at every fireside, Caleb and Nancy became converts of the new faith. There was an element of mysticism in it sufficient to be an attraction to people of intense religious emotion, and it is possible that the former Baptist minister, who lived in that county, and whom they often met, may have been the influence that decided them to leave their comfortable home and its environment of kinship and life-long neighbors, to face what proved to be danger and many hardships.

96 No birth certificate Shaffer, Pansy Frosine (I175)
97 Notation birth record: legitimate per subsequent marriage Barp, Maria Josephina (I150)
98 Note - Marriage date shown is date of marriage license. Family F2141
99 Note - Suzanne supposedly adopted Joe, but I have no proof of this. Mineo, Joseph Angelo (I553)
100 Note that headstone gives year of death as 1897. Lillian Hunter Foutch told me that she and her husband had gone all over the country locating Hunter grave sites and that she and others had added headstones. Since this headstone may have been added 60 years or more after the burial, I give more credence to the obituary. Anderson, Margaret (I63)
