"The exact date at which any individual came here to reside cannot be ascertained. Among the papers of Mr. Cushing, there is a 'list of the names of such persons as came out of the town of Hingham, and towns adjacent, in the County of Norfolk, in the Kingdom of England, into New England, and settled in Hingham.' From this list we are led to believe there were inhabitants here as early as 1633, and among them Ralph Smith, Nicholas Jacob with his family, Thomas Lincoln, weaver, Edmund Hobart and his wife, from Hingham, and Thomas Hobart with his family, from Windham, in Norfolk, England. During the same year Theophilus Cushing, Edmund Hobart, senior, Joshua Hobart, and Henry Gibbs, all of Hingham, England, came to this country. Cushing lived some years at Mr. Haines's farm, and subsequently removed to Hingham. The others settled at Charlestown, and in 1635 removed to this place. In 1634 there were other settlers here, and among them Thomas Chubbuck; Bare Cove was assessed in that year. To 1635, at the May court, Joseph Andrews was sworn as constable of the place. There was a considerable increase of the number of Settlers, and in that year grants of land were made to upwards of fifty individuals, of which a record is preserved. It was in June of that year that Rev. Peter Hobart arrived at Charlestown, and soon after settled in this place." - from History of Hingham published 1893, pages 201-209 (Thomas Lincoln's younger brother Samuel Lincoln, also a weaver, who came to Hingham in 1737, was the ancestor of President Abraham Lincoln -Ed)

314 Carlos Enrique De Cillo was born Charles Elmore Cosby, in South English, Keokuk, Iowa on 22 Feb 1859, married Margaret Rebecca Reynolds 1 Mar 1880 and had two children with her, and then "died at sea" in 1900, according to his grandson Richard Sheridan Cosby, writing in 1947. If that story was told to his family, Cosby likely faked his own death. Then as Carlos Enrique De Cillo, he married Cora Nayan Hobart, then Tina Champion, and then remarried his first wife Margaret, or perhaps they never divorced.

Ruth 'Chita' O'Connor wrote in June 1976 in the Orange County Genealogical Society Quarterly that her father was "Charles Elmore Cosby (changed to Charles E. De Cillo ca. 1901)," and her California Death Certificate from 1996 reads, "Mother's Maiden Name: Decillo, Father's Surname: Cosby."

Then as Carlos Enrique De Cillo, he married Cora Nayan Hobart, and subsequently Tina Champion, and then apparently remarried his first wife Margaret Reynolds.

Ruth 'Chita' (DeCillo) O'Connor, daughter of Carlos DeCillo and Cora Nayan Hobart, wrote in June 1976 in the Orange County Genealogical Society Quarterly that her father was "Charles Elmore Cosby (changed to Charles E. De Cillo ca 1901)," and her California Death Certificate from 1996 reads, "Mother's Maiden Name: Decillo, Father's Surname: Cosby."

320 Charles Adolphe Baldwin was born in 1861 in San Francisco, California. He graduated from Harvard in 1882. He was an art collector, collecting etchings, paintings, enamels and bronzes. He belonged to the Knickerbocker Club; Groiler Club; Society of the Cincinnati; Sons of the American Revolution and was a member of the Christian Science church. Charles died of a stroke at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs in 1934. Charles' father was Admiral Charles Henry Baldwin (1822-1888), a Mexican and Civil War Veteran, and his mother was Pamelia Tolfree. BALDWIN, Charles Adolphe (I3154)
 
321 Charles and Virginia Baldwin constructed the Claremont, a mansion in Colorado Springs, in 1907, seven years after their initial move to Colorado Springs. The construction was influenced by Louis XIV's Grand Trianon at Versailles and is therefore sometimes referred to as 'Trianon.' The architect, Thomas MacLaren, traveled abroad to study the original before constructing the residence. Mrs. Baldwin sold the mansion to Blevins Davis from Independence, Missouri. Mr. Davis then sold the Trianon to the Sisters of St. Francis Seraph, who later sold it to the Trianon Foundation in 1960. Eventually the building became the Colorado Springs School. Family F1192

MORRIS, Charles (I3178)
 
323 Charles Morris was a surveyor, and under the direction of Governor William Shirley of Massachusetts he surveyed Nova Scotia in 1745 with a view toward British colonization. His survey was sent to the Board of Trade and Plantations in England. A copy of it is preserved in Halifax. In 1749, in conjunction with the military engineer John Bruce, he laid out the town of Halifax. In 1755 he was appointed to the Governor's Council. He was the first Surveyor General of the province and was also Chief Justice of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court. His funerary hatchment is on the wall of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Halifax. He was married to Mary Read, the daughter of John Read, the Attorney General of Massachusetts. MORRIS, Charles (I85736)
 
324 Charles was named for Charles Hannah who was the second husband of Sallie Reed Shaw. Sallie was the widow of Franklin Shaw, brother of Helen Marr Shaw Santmyer.

Funeral of Clara Zentmire
Ben Zentmire arrived here Friday afternoon at 3:30 with the body of his sister, Miss Clara, who died at Long Beach, Calif, September 21st. Claud and wife were down from Fort Scott and the sister, Mrs. Flora Lynch was here from El Paso, Texas. Funeral services were conducted at (unreadable) o'clock at the Presbyterian church by Rev. E.L. Torrence and she was laid to rest beside her father and mother in the Cherokee cemetery.
Clara Elizabeth Zentmire was born in Cherokee September 27, 1879. She graduated from our schools in 1894, which at that time included the high school. She then taught in our city schools for several years, going to Texas where she taught three years. In 1917 she went to Arizona where she continued her work as a teacher. Last year she was a member of the faculty of the Northern Arizona Normal School at Flagstaff. While teaching in a summer session at that place she was taken sick and went to the hospital at Lordsburg, New Mexico. Later she went to Long Beach, California where she died September 21, 1921.
She leaves two brothers, Claud of Fort Scott, and Ben of Lordsburg, N.M. and one sister, Mrs. Flora Lynch of El Paso, Texas, besides numerour other relatives. She was a consistent Christian, having been a member of the Presbyterian church for many years.
We have been acquainted with the Zentmire family all our lives and know Miss Clara to be a fine woman who devoted her life to the profession of teaching. She took a great interest in it, and at all times was looking for the opportunity of making herself more proficient in her chosen line. It was not known even by her own folks that she was in such bad health as it afterwards proved to be in. She wrote one of her happy sunshine letters to the Sentinel after she got to Long Beach telling us the news of the Cherokee colony, and we did not even think of her being in such poor health.
We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the brothers and sister. It seems to us as though they were closer together than most children because their parents had been dead so long, and Clara being to older was looked to for advice and sympathy.

328 Cherokee Sentinel, Sept. 4, 1903, page 1:
A Sudden Death
On Monday morning word was passed around that David Zentmire, one of our most respected citizens, who has lived among us for twenty-five years, had passed away on Sunday night at about ten o'clock. Knowing that he had been on the streets on Sunday evening when he went to consult with Dr. Smith about his wife who was down sick, many could hardly believe it true, but later information proved the rumor correct. He had gone home, ate his supper, and laid down on the couch. His daughter, Clara, later suggested that he retire, and she would care for the mother. he acted on her suggestion but after he laid down his wife noticed he breathed very hard and irregularly. She spoke to him and got no answer, and when she turned his head to the light she saw that he was dying. The daughter was called and she in turn called the neighbors. The doctor was called but he got there in time to only se him breathe his last. He had been active and cheerful all day and had not complained in the least.

A universal sigh of sympathy and regret was evidenced by the entire community as the news spread. Mr. Zentmire had, for all these years, been prominent in business circles, and everybody, both young and old, got a pleasant word from him whenever they met him. It seemed that he was a friend to everybody and that everybody was his friend.

He was born in Warren county, Ohio, September 27, 1840, hence he was nearly 63 years old. About the beginning of the war he went to Mason County, Illinois and enlisted soon after in Company K 85 Illinois Infantry, and served until the end of the war.

February 3, 1875, he was married to Miss Emma Carl, and they moved at once to Cherokee and built the house in which he died. His wife and four children survive him.

He had been a Mason ever since he was a young man, and was a prominent member of the G.A.R. under whose auspices he was buried. For several years he has been with the Cherokee Commercial Company.

Funeral services were held at the home Tuesday morning and nearly the whole town and surrounding community were present, the business houses being closed form ten to one o'clock. The services were held by Rev. W.T. Freeland, after which his comrades silently marched to the cemetery and laid him to rest.

334 Clarence Charles Hobart (1854-1932) was the founder of the three Troy companies that bear his name: Hobart Electric Manufacturing Company (now P.M.I.), Hobart Brothers Company (now I.T.W.) and Hobart Cabinet Company. He was an engineering and industrial pioneer whose companies have provided products around the world and whose creative entrepreneurial genius inspired numerous engineers. The Hobart companies continue to be major employers in the region. Close ties with Wright Patterson Air Force Base have given these companies a major strategic importance in war and peace and allowed them to become leaders in patented technology for the product areas they encompass: welding technology and products; ground power; and kitchen, restaurant and food equipment. The C.C. Hobart Foundation continues to be an area benefactor in community activities. Dayton Walk of Fame HOBART, Clarence Charles (I3175)

David Zentmyer was born at Springfield Furnace, Blair county. His parents moved to a farm near Spruce Creek, in Huntingdon county, where he worked with his father, who was a jobber in lumbering. In May, 1861, he enlisted in Company I, Fifth Pennsylvania Reserves. This company, known as the Scott Infantry, was one of the old militia companies, organized before the war. They were mustered into service at Harrisburg and sent to the front in July, 1861.

At the time of his death he was adjutant of the regiment, with the rank of first lieutenant. He was in active service for eighteen months and took part in many battles. He was killed in the battle of Fredericksburg, December 13, 1862, and buried on the field. Mr. Zentmyer's widow is living in Franklinville.

Robert A. Zentmyer was an only child. His boyhood was spent on the farm; he attended the public school, and when he was eighteen entered Juniata College; graduating in the teacher's and business course in 1882. For five years he was principal of the public schools of Curwensville and New Washington. In 1887 he became assistant superintendent of the Britton Coal and Coke Company of Philadelphia, in West Virginia, which position he held for a year and a half. Returning to Clearfield county, he located at Madera, and for four years was employed in surveying, mining engineering, and as a coal contractor. In 1893 he went to Huntingdon Furnace, as book-keeper and assistant manager of the Huntingdon Furnace estate. This position he held for a year and then took charge of a grist mill belonging to the estate. Mr. Zentmyer's politics are Republican. For thirteen years he has been a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and takes a prominent part in all church work.

339 Daniel is buried is buried in the Old Frederick Cemetery here in Warren Co. Va. It is located near the Waterlick area today. You can read the info on Daniel?s headstone that says he died in 1897 at 77 years old. There is a slight problem there as that reporting of his age would have him being born four years after his father died.

His wife Amelia, as shown on the marriage bond, also know as Millie, Milla, and Mildred Ann, misrepresented his age on every census until he was at home at the time the 1880 census was taken where he stated he was 68. She also changed her age on every census.

Daniel was most probably born in 1812-1813. If he was born later than that date he would have been drafted in the Confederate Army in 1864 when the draft age was 50. He was not listed in the Home Guard as a person too old to serve but still be required to fight if needed.

341 Daniel Zentmyer, a well known farmer of near Kauffmans station, died at his home, Wednesday evening, after an illness of a week from pneumonia. He was aged 77 years, 3 months and 22 days. Mr Zentmyer was born near Quincy, on the farm now owned by H. A. Good. He was reared on the farm. Afterward he engaged in wagoning and for six years drove a large Conestoga wagon between Greencastle and Waynesboro and Baltimore. He used six and eight horses in his teams and his descriptions of his trips and his experiences as a wagonner were very interesting. Retiring from this business he again engaged in farming and 23 years ago moved to the place which he occupied uninterruptedly until his death. Mr Zentmyer was a man of much force of character, of wide knowledge and highly esteemed by those who knew him. In politics he was an unswerving Democrat but never aspired to an office. He was a member of the German Baptist Brethren Church. He was the last of a family of twelve children. He is survived by his widow and these children; Daniel B, Nebraska, David, Altenwald; John at home; Mrs George Unger, Upton; Calvin, Hamilton Avenue, Waynesboro; and J Burns, Hotel Werner, a paternmaker in the Landis Tool Co's shop. Funeral Saturday, meet at house at 10 o'clock. Service and interment at German Baptist Brethren church at Brown's Mills. ZENTMYER, Daniel (I87155)

David told Michael that the charts had been compiled by Robert Anderson Zentmyer, David's father, around 1904 after a lengthy letter-writing campaign to persons having the Zentmyer surname and its variants. I have obtained copies of these charts, which have proven to be accurate and informative. -Ed.
