Generation: 2

  1. 2.  Sarah Lord Descendancy chart to this point (1.Mary1) was born about 1658 in Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts; died on 21 May 1727 in Andover, Essex, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    "Sarah Lord Wilson was arrested with several others after a 'touch test' in Andover on 7 Sep 1692 that was conducted under the auspices of the Rev. Thomas Barnard. Her 14-year-old daughter, Sarah, was likewise arrested. Both Sarah and her daughter, Sarah, spent several weeks imprisoned (hellishly). Sarah's son, John, married the granddaughter of Samuel Wardwell. The Sarahs were released on bond and escaped being hanged; however, she and her daughter endured the unpleasant nature of prison life. They appeared in the Superior Court of the Judicature at Ipswich and were cleared in May 1693." [John M. Switlik, citation details below]

[Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Children:
    1. 5. John Daby  Descendancy chart to this point was born on 24 Mar 1741 in Harvard, Worcester, Massachusetts.


Generation: 5

  1. 5.  John Daby Descendancy chart to this point (4.Mercy4, 3.John3, 2.Sarah2, 1.Mary1) was born on 24 Mar 1741 in Harvard, Worcester, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    Or "John Daby".

    Many online sources give this John Darby/Daby, husband of Sarah Hopgood, a birth date of 24 Mar 1741, and show him as a son of Simon Daby (1715-1802) and Mercy Wilson (1717-1751). It's chronologically and geographically plausible. And this John and Sarah did in fact name their first child Simon (b. 20 May 1765). But there are problems with it.

    Henry Stedman Nourse's 1894 History of the Town of Harvard, Massachusetts: 1732-1893, in his list of the offspring of John Daby and Sarah Hopgood, calls this John Daby "John, Jr.". Warren Hapgood's 1898 The Hapgood Family (citation details below) also calls the husband of Lt. Shadrach Hopgood's daughter Sarah "John Darby, Jr."

    And according to Viola A. Derby Bromley's 1905 Derby Genealogy, the John Darby/Daby who married Sarah Hopgood was born "about 1740", a younger son of John Daby (1688-1769) by his wife Hannah (1685-1744). In her reckoning, the John Darby/Daby who was born 24 Mar 1741 to Simon Daby and Mercy Wilson married a Dinah Willard.

    Finally, the 1917 Vital Records of Harvard, Massachusetts, to the Year 1850, in its register of marriages, also calls the John Daby who married Sarah Hopgood "John Jr." (Interestingly, it also calls the John Darby who married Dinah Willard "John Jr.", which creates another problem for Derby Genealogy.)

    Of course, the problem with John Daby and Hannah (now known to have been Hannah Butterick) being the parents of the John Daby/Darby who married Sarah Hopgood is obvious. If John and Hannah's birthdates are as shown in the town records of Harvard, this supposed "John Darby, Jr.", born about 1740, would have been born when his father was 52 and his mother was 55. This is highly implausible. According to Wikipedia, in the United States between 1997 and 1999, only 194 women gave birth aged 55 or over. That's out of a population of about 280,000,000. The population of New England in 1740 was about one million.

    The range of birthdates shown by Bromley for the other children of John and Hannah is 1712 to 1722. It's hard to avoid the suspicion that Bromley was aware that prior sources (Nourse, Hapgood, Harvard vital records) all called the husband of Sarah Hopgood "John, Jr.", and simply parked him as a child of John and Hannah because there were no more plausible local Johns Darby/Daby for him to be the offspring of.

    There's little question that Simon and Mercy Daby/Darby had a son John who was born 24 Mar 1741. The Harvard vital records show a John Daby, "s. of Simon and Marcey, Mar. 24, 1741." Nourse lists, in his register of births, John Daby, born "March 24, 1741", among "The Children of Simon and Mercy."

    It's also worth noting that the Harvard vital records show no birth of any John Darby, Daby, or Derby to John and Hannah Darby, Daby, or Derby.

    Our suspicion is that the John Darby/Daby who married Sarah Hopgood was in fact a son of Simon Daby and Mercy Wilson, just as geography, chronology, and onomastics suggest, and that the idea that he was a "Jr." was introduced by an error in transcription somewhere along the way. We'd like to see the actual materials from which the 1917 Harvard vital records book was transcribed. But suspicion is not evidence.

    UPDATE, 14 Feb 2016: ancestry.com has a handwritten record of Harvard, Massachusetts births, on which we see, under "Daby," "John s of Simon and Mercy" born 24 Mar 1741. No "Jr." in sight.

    John married Sarah Hopgood on 17 Jan 1765 in Harvard, Worcester, Massachusetts. Sarah (daughter of Lt. Shadrach Hopgood and Elizabeth Weatherbee) was born on 16 Jun 1744 in Harvard, Worcester, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    A memoir of his daughter Mary Elizabeth Bingham, by her daughter Barbara Ann Phelps, calls him "Calvin Perry Bingham."

    From The Bingham Family in the United States, citation details below:

    Calvin and his family were with the earliest Mormon groups to move across America. The oldest child of Lucius Augustus, Calvin was born in NY, lived in Upper Canada as a child, and by 1840 when he was thirteen, lived with the Mormon group in Henderson, Knox Co IL. About 1848, probably in IA after the Mormons moved to Pottawattamie Co, Calvin married Elizabeth Lucretia Thorn. He, his wife and her entire family, mother and siblings lived in one household in 1850.

    Between 1853 and 1867, Calvin and his family lived in several different UT settlements. They then lived for about ten years in Montpelier, Bear Lake Co ID before returning to Box Elder Co UT by 1880. After Calvin died in AZ in 1883, wife Elizabeth moved to Vernal, Uintah Co UT where she lived with grown children William and Alice in 1900.

    "Calvin Bingham was the son of Lucius and Sarah Stone Bingham. He was born Sept. 7, 1827 in Fowler, St. Lawrence County, New York. He was the oldest of eight children: four brothers--Benjamin, Augustus, Perry, and Prosper-- and three sisters: Emeline, Lucy, and MaryJane.

    "His mother died about 1849. His father remarried but never came west to Utah. Calvin was baptized into the Mormon church at the age of seventeen in Bannock County, Illinois in 1844.

    "Elizabeth Lucretia Thorn was the daughter of Ashael and Sarah Lester Thorn, born in Monrovia, Cayuga county, New York on March 25, 1832. She was the second child in a family of ten: three boys--William L., Richard, and Isaac, and seven girls--Maryann, Sarah, Nancy, Lydia, Abigale, Barbara Ann, and Elizabeth Lucretia. Her mother died about 1852 and her father re-married Elizabeth Lusk, a widow. They came west with his family.

    "Calvin and Elizabeth were married December 18, 1848 in Pottawatamie, Iowa. Sarah and Calvin were born to them here. In 1853 they and several other members of the Thorn family moved west to Utah settleing in the West Weber area (now known as Uintah). Their third child, Mary Elizabeth, was born here. While living in Uintah, Calvin was called to serve in Col. Johnson's army. They were among the saints that made the move south--leaving their homes to be burned if necessary. On returning they settled in Farmington, Utah, where Lucy Melissa, their fourth child, was born. Later they moved to Three Mile Creek which is now known as Perry, Utah. In about 1857, the Ashael Thorn family moved here too and they built their homes near each other. Barbara Ann, their fifth child was born here. Three years later in 1860 they moved to Hyrum, Utah.

    "Being among the first settlers in Hyrum, they took an active part in civic and church activities. Calvin became the first Bishop of Hyrum and was loved and remembered by people for a great many years. Two more children were born to them here, Anna Marie and Ashael.

    "In 1865 they were called to settle the Bear Lake, Idaho area. They settled in Montpelier where due to very harsh winters, they lost their crops. Very discouraged, they returned to Hyrum, Utah. Their son, William Augustus, was born here in Montpelier.

    "About 1868 they returned to Montpelier. Elizabeth taught the first school in town--teaching out of their small log home. Another daughter, Lydia Emeline, was born to them here. Later, they built a large home on the banks of the creek that ran through town. Their last two children were born here--Orissa Vilate and Alice. Orissa Vilate died at nine months old. Also at this residence, their daughter, Lucy Melissa Bigham Williams, died after giving birth to a baby girl. She was only eighteen years old. This two week old baby girl was raised by her grandparents, Calvin and Elizabeth.

    "In 1878, the Binghams, their married son and daughters, and a large group of other people left Montpelier intending to go to Arizona and settle an area there. But upon reaching Salem, Utah, they decided to stop there for a year or so. The Perry Bingham family and the Robert H. Williams family were among those that settled in Salem for that short time. In 1880, with several other families including the Alonzo Bingham family, Calvin and Elizabeth headed for Arizona again. They stopped in St. Johns, Arizona where their daughter, Anna Marie and husband William were living. They stayed there until 1891 when they moved to St. David, Arizona. Arriving on Christmas Day, they joined others of the original group who had settled that area and started up a freighting business. This business engaged in the freight business between Benson, Tombstone and Bisbee. Although Calvin was a blacksmith by trade, he found freighting more profitable. So he bought a team of large horses to go with the team he already had, and followed this occupation for a little more than a year.

    "Calvin Bingham left his home with a wagon loaded with freight for Bisbee, about 56 miles from St. David. On the following day, May 27,1883, while going down a steep grade, his freight wagon upset pinning him under the wagon and causing his death.

    "His body was brought home by three men from his ward. Funeral services were held in the ward at St. David May 29, 1883. Speakers were Patriarch P.C. Merrill, President David P. Kimball, J.H. Martineau, Bishop Henry Horn, and S.B. Merrill, who all spoke highly of the integrity, faithfullness and honesty of Calvin. After the death of her husband, Elizabeth Lucretia Bingham, with her family consisting of the younger children Ashael, William, Emeline, Lucy Jane, a grand-daughter, and Alice moved to Mesa, Arizona where her three oldest children, Clarinda, Mary Elizabeth Phelps, and Calvin Perry Bingham lived. She had only been there a short time when another sorrow came into her life. Ashael, then 23 years old, had an appendicitis attack and died just four months after his father's death.

    "The family spent three years in Mesa and then returned to their former home in Montpelier, Idaho. Then in 1888 they moved to Vernal, Utah where Lucretia spent the remainder of her life. She was a faithful LDS woman and worked in the Relief Society organization. While in Montpelier she had been called to work among the sick and dying. She helped make burial clothes and to dress and lay out the dead. She underwent many hardships of the early pioneers. She learned to be thrifty and to economize so she could feed and clothe her family. It is said that when she bought a piece of calico, she would tear a quilt block from it for the quilt she was making. She made very nice quilts that were the envy of her friends and neighbors. Thread was expensive, so she would ravel out cloth to sew her blocks together with. She taught her 11 children to be thrifty and industrious too. She passed away at her home in Vernal Nov. 28, 1903 as a result of a heart attack."

    Calvin married Elizabeth Lucretia Thorne on 18 Dec 1848 in Big Pigeon, Pottawattamie, Iowa. Elizabeth (daughter of Ashal Enoch Thorne and Sarah Lester) was born on 25 Mar 1832 in Moravia, Cayuga, New York; died on 28 Nov 1903 in Vernal, Uintah, Utah; was buried in Vernal Memorial Park, Vernal, Uintah, Utah.
