     Elizabeth Breckenridge was born in 1779 at near McConnellstown, Huntingdon Co., Pennsylvania, USA.1 She married William Jerome Meek, son of Capt. George Meek and Rachel Herron, before 1797; Their oldest son, John B., was born in 1797.2 Elizabeth Breckenridge died in 1820 at Huntingdon Co., Pennsylvania?, USA.
     Reference: Linn [1883:213]: "William Meek died early, leaving John B. Meek and four other children dependent upon the mother. She was a woman noted for great energy of character, untiring industry, and eminent piety..." at Citation.3 She was a mentioned with Capt. George Meek at Citation; Commemorative Biographical Record of Central Pennsylvania, Including the Counties of Centre, Clinton, Union and Snyder; Chicago: J.H.Beers & Co., 1898, p. 124.
     "Capt. George Meek entered the service with his brothers. The father, Robert Meek, owned property in Cumberland county in 1761. The family of George Meek lived near Lewistown (now Mifflin county) in 1780, and he came into Centre county with James Harris on a surveying expeditionin 1784. On the 21st of January, 1790, he took up a tract of land in Ferguson township, which is still owned by the Meeks. His children were: mary, John, Robert, David, William, Sarah, Isabella and Jane.
     "William married Elizabeth Breckinridge, whose family had settled in Huntingdon county about three miles southeast of McConnelstown, on the road leading from Huntingdon to Bedford, and where the father, eldest sister and younger brother had been murdered by the Indians. He settled on that part of his father's tract now known as the David G. Meek farm, and died in 1806, leaving his wife and four sons and a daughter born three months after the father's death. The children were: John B., born June 5, 1797, died in Washington, D.C., November 28, 1868; George W., born September 14, 1799, died May 27, 1877; Reuben H; William J; and Harriet Jane, who married James McCartney, and died in Bolivar, Penn., in 1881."4 EDV-3.

Elizabeth Breckenridge "...One of his sons, William, who was married to Elizabeth Breckenridge, of the Kentucky family of that name was the grandfather of P. Gray Meek."2

Elizabeth Breckenridge
     Notes on Elizabeth as a baby: "In July 1779, 3 miles southeast of McConnellstown, on road from Huntingdon to Bedford, PA, Indians attacked. Father and eldest daughter (14) were killed in the springhouse. Brothers John and Thomas were not home at the time. Her mother with another daughter (age 3) and baby Elizabeth escaped into fields." Elizabeth was wrapped in a blanket, set down in a rye field while her mother looked for food. She later forgot where she laid the baby. A search found her the next day, unharmed. (From book of Centre County history)
     MEEK, JOHN B., died on the 28th of November, 1868, at his residence in Washington City. He was born in Centre County, June 5, 1797, and was the son of William Meek. His mother's name was Elizabeth Breckenridge, of whom the following interesting incident is authentic: In July, 1779, the Breckenridge family, consisting of father, mother, two sons, - John and Thomas, aged eighteen and sixteen years respectively, - a daughter of fourteen, another aged three years, and Elizabeth, then an infant at the breast, re-sided about three miles southeast of McConnellstown, in Huntingdon County, on the road from Huntingdon to Bedford, on the farm in 1856 occupied by Ludwig Hoover. John and Thomas had left the house, when the Indians came upon them, killed the father near the spring-house and the oldest daughter in the spring-house. The mother snatched the infant Elizabeth out of the cradle, and taking the other child up made her escape. She took the path towards Huntingdon, but lost it, and wandered about the woods with her children the entire day and night. Coming to a rye-field the next morning, she wrapped the infant in a part of her garments, laid it down, and proceeded to rub grains of rye for her starving child. Search was made for her, and late in the afternoon of the next day she was found on the edge of the rye-field with the one child, but anguish had so unsettled her mind she could not tell where the baby was laid. Late the next day she recovered sufficiently to tell where she had put the child, and it was found, not having suffered apparently, except its entire face was fly-blown. The infant recovered, and became the wife of Wm. Meek. John Breckenridge became a distinguished Presbyterian preacher, and officiated for many years in the first Presbyterian Church built in Washington City. (from John Blair Linn, "History of Centre and Clinton Counties, Pennsylvania", 1883, p. 213.)3

Elizabeth Breckenridge      Commemorative Biographical Record, p.124: "...whose family had settled in Huntingdon county. about three miles southeast of McConnellstown on the road leading from Huntingdon to Bedford, and where the father, eldest sister and younger brother had been murdered by the indians."4 Elizabeth Breckenridge was also known as Elizabeth Breckinridge. She was a mentioned with Robert Breckenridge in July 1779 at near McConnellstown, Huntingdon Co., Pennsylvania, USA; Linn [1883:213]: "In July , 1779, the Breckenridge family, consisting of father, mother, two sons, - John and Thomas,k aged eighteen and sixteen years repectively, - a daughter of fourteen , another aged three years, and Elizabeth, then an infant at the breast, resided about three miles southeast of McConnellstown, in Huntingdon County, on the road from Huntingdon to Bedford, on the farm in 1856 occupied by Ludwig Hoover. John and Thomas had left the house, when the Indians came upon them, killed the father near the spring-house and the oldest daughter in the spring-house. The mother snatched the inant Elizabeth out of the cradle, and taking the other child up made her escape. She took the path towards Huntingdon, but lost it, and wandered about he woods with her children the entire day and night. Coming to a ryef+ield the next morning, she wrapped the infant in a part of her garments, laid it down, and proceeded to rub grains of rye for her starving child. Search was made for her, and late in the afternoon of the next day she was found on the edge of the rye-field with the one child, but anguish had so unsettled her mind she could not tell where the baby was laid. Late the next day she recovered sufficiently to tell where she had put the child, and it was found, not having suffered apparently, except its entire face was fly-blown. The infant recovered and became the wife of Wm. Meek. John Bredkenridge became a distinguished Presbyterian preacher and officiated for many years in the first Presbyterian Church built in Washing city."

George Valentine Valentine and Downing family information provided by George Valentine (manuscript.)8
George Valentine was a witness to the from Beers [1898:69ff]: "VALENTINE. The Valentines of Bellefonte and their connections have descended from early and historic families of the State. The Valentine family is in direct line of descent from Robert Valentine (1), who died in 1651. His wife was Elizabeth Warren, a native of Lambstown, County Wexford, Ireland, whose death occurred in Ballynocassick in 1695. Their son, George, of Bally Brummel. County Carlow, Ireland, had a son Thomas, who in 1715 married Mary, daughter of Thomas and Mary (Hooper) Parke, of Battytean, County Carlow, and became the progenitor of the family in America. He was born in 1693, and about 1720 came to America, locating in Chester County, Penn. Later he moved into what became Montgomery County of the same State, where his death occurred in 1747. Thomas Parke appears to have been a farmer in Ireland, owning in 1720 land in Ballileau, Ballaghmore and Coolissnactah. In 1724 he came to America bringing with him his family, and located in the great valley on the west side of what is now Downington, where he had purchased 500 acres of land. He died January 31,1738, and his widow on June 2 1, 1749. He was an elder in Caln Meeting, and esteemed by Friends.
     Thomas Valentine and family were Friends, and identified with the Kilconnor Monthly Meeting in Ireland. Of their children, Robert, a native of Bally Brummel, Ireland, married, in 1747, Rachel Edge, of Providence, Chester Co., Penn., and his son Robert, born in 1752, married, in 1773 , Ann Bond. Robert, the son of the emigrant, became a recommended minister in 1764, and traveled considerably in that capacity, including a visit to Great Britain at the close of the Revolutionary war. John Edge, the maternal grandfather of Rachel Edge, came to the country from St. Andrews, Holborn, in the County of Middlesex, England, and settled in Nether Providence about the year 1685. He was an earnest member of the Society of Friends. He had been subjected to heavy fines and imprisonment in his native county for refusing to act contrary to his
conscientious scruples, and on one occasion had to stand public trial.
     From Robert Valentine and Ann Bond came descendants of the name in Centre County. Their children were: Robert married Elizabeth Downing; George married Mary Downing; Samuel and Jacob D. died unmarried; Reuben B. married Sarah Downing; Abraham S. married Clarissa Miles; Bond married Lydia Fairlamb; Thomazine married Reuben Miller: and Rachael married Maj. Jonathan Kersley, of Detroit, Mich. Ann Bond was the daughter of Samuel and Thomazine (Downing) Bond, of West Whiteland, Chester county, and the granddaughter of Joseph Bond, who settled at Bristol, in Bucks county, Penn., in the early part of the eighteenth century; he was a large land owner, and was one of the petitioners for the incorporation of the borough, which was incorporated by letters patent from the Crown, November 14, 1720. Joseph Bond and John Hall were the first Burgesses of the town. The former represented his county in the Colonial Legislature.
     In 1815, Samuel, Jacob D., George, Reuben B., Abram S., and Bond Valentine, sons of Robert and Ann Bond, came from Chester county to Centre county, accompanied by Jacob Thomas, and leased the old Dunlop iron furnace erected by John Dunlop in 1802, and in 1821 purchased it. Mr. Thomas withdrew in 1817, and was succeeded by his son, William A. Thomas. They were all iron-masters, and for years were largely identified with the development of the iron interests of Centre County. They built additional forges and in 1824 built the first rolling mill in Centre County. In 1842 they abandoned the old furnace, and built one just outside of the borough of Bellefonte. Many of the sons of these men succeeded them to the business, and some are still connected with it. Referring to these men who built the first Friends Meeting House at Bellefonte, and who by birth were members of the Society, a writer says: "The rise of the Friends Meeting in Bellefonte seems worthy of some notice. It was established by four or five men, who, making no especial profession of religion, yet yielded to a simple apprehension of duty, and built a house for the worship of God. All of them became faithful humble followers of the Lord Jesus, and to one of them was committed the ministry of the Gospel of Christ. Friends Meeting is still regularly held in Bellefonte, and is largely composed of the descendants of those who established it." Of the Valentine brothers who came to Centre County, George, born in East Caln, September I, 1788, died in Bellefonte, July 13, 1857, married Mary Downing, born in Philadelphia, January 22, 1792, died January 27, 1879. issue: (1) Jacob Downing, born at Bellefonte October 4, 1823, died September 16, 1896, in the house in which he was born, it being one of the first houses built in Bellefonte. He was an iron-master, "upright and honest, and lived in accordance with the Quaker faith." He married Deborah Downing, a daughter of Richard and Sarah G. (Mount) Downing, issue: George, Jacob, Louise, Ellen and Robert. (2) Sarah married Dr. George Fox. (3) Eliza married Thomas S. Downing. (4) Reuben B., born in Bellefonte in 1829, where he died in 1871, was an iron-master, and one of the most successful managers of the Valentine Iron Works. He was also engaged extensively in farming, and was a conscientious and upright member of the Society of Friends. In 1857 he married Mary B. Jacobs, who was born at East Whiteland, Chester Co., Penn., a daughter of Joseph and Ann (Bowen) Jacobs, issue: Mary and Emily (deceased); Anna J; Julia (deceased); and Caroline M. (5) Caroline married Thompson Millikin. (6) George married Emily Jacobs (a sister of Mary B. Jacobs), issue: Jane H., Mary D., Sarah W. and Emily J.
     Taking up the history of the Downing family: Mary Downing (who married George Valentine) was the direct descendant of Thomas Downing, who was born in Bradninch, in Devonshire, England, in 1691, and who, as early as 1718, resided in Chester county, Penn., and from whom descended the numerous families of Downings in that county. For generations the Downings were farmers and millers. Richard Downing, a son of Thomas, married Mary Edge, and, of their children, Jacob Downing married Sarah Drinker, of Philadelphia, and they became the parents of Mary (Downing) Valentine. A son of Richard, also named Richard, married Sarah G. Mount, and their daughter Deborah became the wife of Jacob Valentine. Elizabeth Drinker, the grandmother of Mary (Downing) Valentine, kept a diary from 1759 to 1807, which was published in book form in 1889. She was a direct descendant of Philip Drinker (1), who was born in 1597 and died in 1647; came in 1635 from Exeter, England, and settled at Charlestown, Mass. Henry Drinker, the great-great-great-grandson of Philip, the grandfather of Mary Downing, married Elizabeth Sandwith. The latter descended from John Jervis, of Roscoe, Kings county, Ireland, who came to America in 1688, with a son Martyn, and purchased large tracts of land in New Jersey now called Jervis Sound. John Jervis was appointed a justice of the peace of New Jersey. Charles, another son, was court painter to King George II, a correspondent of the poet Pope, and translator of "Don Quixote. "Henry Drinker was an ironmaster and ship owner of Philadelphia; was arrested in 1777 and sent to Virginia under pretense of hostility to the American cause; he was a member of the. common council of Philadelphia, and a large landowner; he was born in 1734, and ,died in 1809. The mother of Deborah (Downing) Valentine, Sarah G. Mount, was the daughter of James Mount, whose father was Ezekial, the son of Thomas Mount, who came from England and was the owner of the land on which the city of Louisville, Ky., was built. He had many slaves, and was a man of wealth.
     Referring to the history of the Jacobs family, Mary B. and Emily (Jacobs) Valentine are in direct line of descent from John Jacobs (1) (the first of the family in America), who in 1700 settled on a portion of the Vanbibber tract of land in Providence, Philadelphia County. His death occurred in 1730. His grandson, John Jacobs (3), was the Speaker of the first .General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. His brother, Israel, was a member of Congress in 1791, and another brother, Jesse, held a captain's commission and served in the Revolutionary war, participating in a number of important battles. Ann Bowen, mother of Mary B. and Emily (Jacobs) Valentine, was in direct line of descent from John Bowen (1), of Whiteland, Chester County, who died in 1715. The paternal grandmother of Mary B. and Emily (Jacobs) Valentine was Mary Brinton, of Thornburg, Delaware Co., Penn., who was in line from William Brinton (1), of Staffordshire, England, who settled in Concord, Birmingham Township, Delaware Co., Penn.,in 1684, and was among the earliest converts of George Fox. He bought large tracts of land in Chester County. He was born in 1630, and died in 1700. His son, William, was a member of the Provincial Assembly in 1666, and died in 1751. Joseph, of Thornbury, Delaware Co., Penn., the son of William (2), was an associate judge of Pennsylvania, and a member of the Provincial Assembly. Reuben B. Valentine, of the Valentine brothers coming to Centre County in 1815, was born in 1793, and died in 1841; married Sarah Downing (a sister of Mary Downing, the wife of his brother George), born June 17. 1797, died November 30, 1843, and their children were: (I) Mary married Dr. Elias W. Hale, a wealthy gentleman of influence, of Lewistown, born June 6, 1824, and died February 20, 1892; issue: Sarah, died young, and Ellen, the wife of G. Murray Andrews. (2) George was killed in a rolling mill at the age of five years. William Valentine died unmarried.
     Abraham S. Valentine, another of the original brothers locating in Centre county, died August 29, 1862 aged sixty-eight years; married Clarissa Miles, who died March 3, 1857, aged forty-nine years; was a member of the original firm and the inventor of the ore-washing machine since in general use, the adoption of which effected a revolution in the ore mining of this region. He was possessed of great business ability and foresight (being "a man far ahead of his time "), and it was due largely to his inventions and improvements that the Valentine charcoal iron achieved its widespread reputation. At the outbreak of the war of the Rebellion he was one of the liberal contributors to a subscription for the support of the soldiers' families. Two of his sons, Abram and Bond, were in the service for a time. Clarissa Miles, wife of Abram S., was a daughter of Evan Miles, who died May 10, 1838, in his sixty-ninth year, and of Rebecca George (of the family of George's Hill, Philadelphia), who died July 28, 1845, in her seventy-sixth year; both are buried in the graveyard at Milesburg. Evan Miles was the son of Richard Miles, and the nephew of Col. Samuel Miles, of Revolutionary fame. The latter served as a lieutenant in the expedition to Fort Duquesne; was wounded at Ligonia in an attack made by the French and Indians; commanded a regiment in 1760, and at the end of the campaign was left in command of the forces at Presque Isle (now Erie), Penn. He commanded a regiment in the Revolutionary war under Gen. Washington. While leading his regiment at the battle of Long Island, August 27, 1776, he was captured, and while a prisoner was made a brigadier-general for distinguished service. He was no less distinguished in civil life after the war, holding many responsible positions, among them that of mayor of Philadelphia. Richard Miles married Mary Pugh, who was a member of the Society of Friends, and in 1792 they located at Milesburg, Centre county, where both are buried. He was a captain of militia in the Revolution. His Death occurred December 16, 1823, in the eighty-fifth year of his age, and that of his wife, December 20, 1794, aged forty-four years. Richard Miles was the grandson of Richard, one of the brothers who came from South Wales in 1682 or 1683, and settled at Radnor, Pennsylvania.
     The children of Abraham S. Valentine and Clarissa (Miles) were: (1) Anna married S. Stewart Lyon, and their issue are-John; Anna; Clara, the wife of William Jasper Nicholas; Mary, the wife of Ellis L. Orvis; and Rebecca. (2) Rebecca M. married Evan Pugh, Ph. D., who lived only a few months after marriage, and left no issue; he was a scholarly gentleman and distinguished educator, and was the first president of the Pennsylvania State College. (3) Bond, born March 22, 1834, died April 19, 1889, married Mattie Kenney, who died August 25, 1882, in her forty-sixth year; their children are-Evan and Jane (died in infancy); Bond; and Edward K. The father of these was for years a member of the firm of Shortlidge & Co., of Bellefonte, dealers in grain and coal, and latterly he was engaged in the insurance business. "He was closely attached to the Society of Friends, and was very devoted to their teachings. He was a man possessing a pure Christian character, whom everyone honored. His friends were numbered by the hundreds, who looked upon him as a man worthy of imitation, because he followed as near as he could in the paths of divine teaching. He was courteous, genial, and enjoyed being genial whether in social or business life."(4) Abram S., who resides at Atlantic City, N. J., married Eliza U. Natt, of Philadelphia, daughter of Thomas J. and Anne Natt, of England, and their children are-Charles, Arthur and Edward. Abram S. is connected with the Valentine Iron Works at Bellefonte, and for years took an active part in the business interests of Bellefonte and vicinity. During the war of the Rebellion he was for a time in the service, and contributed largely toward the support of the soldiers and their families. (5) Evan M., who resides in Philadelphia, married Mary J. Taylor, of Doylestown, who died. Their children are Harry S. and Abram S. (6) Samuel and (7) Blanchard died in infancy, (8) and (9) Clara and Mary, respectively, unmarried. (10) Henry C. now connected with the Valentine Iron Works, married Sarah, a daughter of Thomas, and grand-.daughter of Judge Thomas Burnside, and their children are-Stanley, Helen, Rebecca and Henry. Henry C. is a member of the borough council.
     Bond Valentine, the youngest of the original Valentine brothers, did not remain in the iron business long, but early turned his attention to the law. His birth occurred in 1798. His early paternal training was such as to instill in his mind those principles of morality which were the guiding and controlling influence of his after life. He became a distinguished lawyer, and served in the General Assembly, 1830-32, from Centre County. In 1842, influenced by conscientious convictions, he abandoned the law that he might devote his life to the public ministry in the Society of Friends. The Friends Review in an obituary notice, said: "His sterling integrity and the well-known simplicity of his character, averse to mere forms, won for him the increased confidence and respect of the community, and his addresses have been marked by impassioned earnestness. In social circles our friend was very attractive, without reserve, original, genial and simple."
     To his first wife, Lydia, daughter of John and Susannah (Ashbridge) Fairland, farming people of near West Chester, Penn., and of English descent, two children were born, the elder of whom died in infancy; the other is Robert Valentine, who has long been at the head of the firm of Valentine & Co., of Bellefonte. Robert Valentine is one of the prominent and wealthy citizens of Bellefonte. His second wife, to whom he was married in 1861, was Mary Natt, daughter of Thomas J. and Anne Natt, born in England, and their children are: Emily and Julia, the latter being the wife of Dr. Bond, of Baltimore. The homes of Robert Valentine and family, and the family of Reuben B. Valentine, are particularly striking, and are of the several imposing and beautiful places of the mountain town of Bellefonte. The former, a modern built, native stone structure, commodious and substantial, stands on one of the highest points of the town, and is very commanding in point of view. While the other is located a short distance from the town on a beautifully situated farm, "Burnham," this suburban countryseat is surrounded by spacious grounds, and the old grey limestone house, built by Reuben B. Valentine in 1856, is of the Colonial style. with Robert Valentine at Citation.9

George Valentine was a witness to the from Beers [1898:69ff]: "In 1815, Samuel, Jacob D., George, Reuben B., Abram S., and Bond Valentine, sons of Robert and Ann Bond, came from Chester county to Centre county, accompanied by Jacob Thomas, and leased the old Dunlop iron furnace erected by John Dunlop in 1802, and in 1821 purchased it. Mr. Thomas withdrew in 1817, and was succeeded by his son, William A. Thomas. They were all iron-masters, and for years were largely identified with the development of the iron interests of Centre County. They built additional forges and in 1824 built the first rolling mill in Centre County. In 1842 they abandoned the old furnace, and built one just outside of the borough of Bellefonte. Many of the sons of these men succeeded them to the business, and some are still connected with it. Referring to these men who built the first Friends Meeting House at Bellefonte, and who by birth were members of the Society, a writer says: "The rise of the Friends Meeting in Bellefonte seems worthy of some notice. It was established by four or five men, who, making no especial profession of religion, yet yielded to a simple apprehension of duty, and built a house for the worship of God. All of them became faithful humble followers of the Lord Jesus, and to one of them was committed the ministry of the Gospel of Christ. Friends Meeting is still regularly held in Bellefonte, and is largely composed of the descendants of those who established it." Of the Valentine brothers who came to Centre County, George, born in East Caln, September I, 1788, died in Bellefonte, July 13, 1857, married Mary Downing, born in Philadelphia, January 22, 1792, died January 27, 1879. issue: (1) Jacob Downing, born at Bellefonte October 4, 1823, died September 16, 1896, in the house in which he was born, it being one of the first houses built in Bellefonte. He was an iron-master, "upright and honest, and lived in accordance with the Quaker faith." He married Deborah Downing, a daughter of Richard and Sarah G. (Mount) Downing, issue: George, Jacob, Louise, Ellen and Robert. (2) Sarah married Dr. George Fox. (3) Eliza married Thomas S. Downing. (4) Reuben B., born in Bellefonte in 1829, where he died in 1871, was an iron-master, and one of the most successful managers of the Valentine Iron Works. He was also engaged extensively in farming, and was a conscientious and upright member of the Society of Friends. In 1857 he married Mary B. Jacobs, who was born at East Whiteland, Chester Co., Penn., a daughter of Joseph and Ann (Bowen) Jacobs, issue: Mary and Emily (deceased); Anna J; Julia (deceased); and Caroline M. (5) Caroline married Thompson Millikin. (6) George married Emily Jacobs (a sister of Mary B. Jacobs), issue: Jane H., Mary D., Sarah W. and Emily J." with Samuel Valentine in 1815 at Centre Co., Pennsylvania, USA.11 George Valentine was a mentioned with Abraham S. Valentine in 1815 at Centre Co., Pennsylvania, USA; Linn [1883:56]: "1815 - The annals of this year chronicle the arrival of the Valentine brothers and William A. Thomas, as tenants of the iron-works of John Dunlop, deceased. They operated under a lease from Hon. Charles Huston and John G. Lowrey, administrators, until the 1st of October, 1821, when the force and furnace tracts, together with the Galesburg ore banks, as they were called, were purchased by Samuel Valentine, Jacob Valentine, George Valentine, Robert Valentine and william A. Thomas, for the sum of fourteen thousand dollars, at Orphans' Court sale, of the real estate of John Dunlop; the latter's half-interest in the Washington Works was sold shortly after after his death to Alexander irvine, of Baltimore, for five thousand dollars."

Mary Drinker Downing was a witness to the from Beers [1898:69ff]: "VALENTINE. The Valentines of Bellefonte and their connections have descended from early and historic families of the State. The Valentine family is in direct line of descent from Robert Valentine (1), who died in 1651. His wife was Elizabeth Warren, a native of Lambstown, County Wexford, Ireland, whose death occurred in Ballynocassick in 1695. Their son, George, of Bally Brummel. County Carlow, Ireland, had a son Thomas, who in 1715 married Mary, daughter of Thomas and Mary (Hooper) Parke, of Battytean, County Carlow, and became the progenitor of the family in America. He was born in 1693, and about 1720 came to America, locating in Chester County, Penn. Later he moved into what became Montgomery County of the same State, where his death occurred in 1747. Thomas Parke appears to have been a farmer in Ireland, owning in 1720 land in Ballileau, Ballaghmore and Coolissnactah. In 1724 he came to America bringing with him his family, and located in the great valley on the west side of what is now Downington, where he had purchased 500 acres of land. He died January 31,1738, and his widow on June 2 1, 1749. He was an elder in Caln Meeting, and esteemed by Friends.
     Thomas Valentine and family were Friends, and identified with the Kilconnor Monthly Meeting in Ireland. Of their children, Robert, a native of Bally Brummel, Ireland, married, in 1747, Rachel Edge, of Providence, Chester Co., Penn., and his son Robert, born in 1752, married, in 1773 , Ann Bond. Robert, the son of the emigrant, became a recommended minister in 1764, and traveled considerably in that capacity, including a visit to Great Britain at the close of the Revolutionary war. John Edge, the maternal grandfather of Rachel Edge, came to the country from St. Andrews, Holborn, in the County of Middlesex, England, and settled in Nether Providence about the year 1685. He was an earnest member of the Society of Friends. He had been subjected to heavy fines and imprisonment in his native county for refusing to act contrary to his
conscientious scruples, and on one occasion had to stand public trial.
     From Robert Valentine and Ann Bond came descendants of the name in Centre County. Their children were: Robert married Elizabeth Downing; George married Mary Downing; Samuel and Jacob D. died unmarried; Reuben B. married Sarah Downing; Abraham S. married Clarissa Miles; Bond married Lydia Fairlamb; Thomazine married Reuben Miller: and Rachael married Maj. Jonathan Kersley, of Detroit, Mich. Ann Bond was the daughter of Samuel and Thomazine (Downing) Bond, of West Whiteland, Chester county, and the granddaughter of Joseph Bond, who settled at Bristol, in Bucks county, Penn., in the early part of the eighteenth century; he was a large land owner, and was one of the petitioners for the incorporation of the borough, which was incorporated by letters patent from the Crown, November 14, 1720. Joseph Bond and John Hall were the first Burgesses of the town. The former represented his county in the Colonial Legislature.
     In 1815, Samuel, Jacob D., George, Reuben B., Abram S., and Bond Valentine, sons of Robert and Ann Bond, came from Chester county to Centre county, accompanied by Jacob Thomas, and leased the old Dunlop iron furnace erected by John Dunlop in 1802, and in 1821 purchased it. Mr. Thomas withdrew in 1817, and was succeeded by his son, William A. Thomas. They were all iron-masters, and for years were largely identified with the development of the iron interests of Centre County. They built additional forges and in 1824 built the first rolling mill in Centre County. In 1842 they abandoned the old furnace, and built one just outside of the borough of Bellefonte. Many of the sons of these men succeeded them to the business, and some are still connected with it. Referring to these men who built the first Friends Meeting House at Bellefonte, and who by birth were members of the Society, a writer says: "The rise of the Friends Meeting in Bellefonte seems worthy of some notice. It was established by four or five men, who, making no especial profession of religion, yet yielded to a simple apprehension of duty, and built a house for the worship of God. All of them became faithful humble followers of the Lord Jesus, and to one of them was committed the ministry of the Gospel of Christ. Friends Meeting is still regularly held in Bellefonte, and is largely composed of the descendants of those who established it." Of the Valentine brothers who came to Centre County, George, born in East Caln, September I, 1788, died in Bellefonte, July 13, 1857, married Mary Downing, born in Philadelphia, January 22, 1792, died January 27, 1879. issue: (1) Jacob Downing, born at Bellefonte October 4, 1823, died September 16, 1896, in the house in which he was born, it being one of the first houses built in Bellefonte. He was an iron-master, "upright and honest, and lived in accordance with the Quaker faith." He married Deborah Downing, a daughter of Richard and Sarah G. (Mount) Downing, issue: George, Jacob, Louise, Ellen and Robert. (2) Sarah married Dr. George Fox. (3) Eliza married Thomas S. Downing. (4) Reuben B., born in Bellefonte in 1829, where he died in 1871, was an iron-master, and one of the most successful managers of the Valentine Iron Works. He was also engaged extensively in farming, and was a conscientious and upright member of the Society of Friends. In 1857 he married Mary B. Jacobs, who was born at East Whiteland, Chester Co., Penn., a daughter of Joseph and Ann (Bowen) Jacobs, issue: Mary and Emily (deceased); Anna J; Julia (deceased); and Caroline M. (5) Caroline married Thompson Millikin. (6) George married Emily Jacobs (a sister of Mary B. Jacobs), issue: Jane H., Mary D., Sarah W. and Emily J.
     Taking up the history of the Downing family: Mary Downing (who married George Valentine) was the direct descendant of Thomas Downing, who was born in Bradninch, in Devonshire, England, in 1691, and who, as early as 1718, resided in Chester county, Penn., and from whom descended the numerous families of Downings in that county. For generations the Downings were farmers and millers. Richard Downing, a son of Thomas, married Mary Edge, and, of their children, Jacob Downing married Sarah Drinker, of Philadelphia, and they became the parents of Mary (Downing) Valentine. A son of Richard, also named Richard, married Sarah G. Mount, and their daughter Deborah became the wife of Jacob Valentine. Elizabeth Drinker, the grandmother of Mary (Downing) Valentine, kept a diary from 1759 to 1807, which was published in book form in 1889. She was a direct descendant of Philip Drinker (1), who was born in 1597 and died in 1647; came in 1635 from Exeter, England, and settled at Charlestown, Mass. Henry Drinker, the great-great-great-grandson of Philip, the grandfather of Mary Downing, married Elizabeth Sandwith. The latter descended from John Jervis, of Roscoe, Kings county, Ireland, who came to America in 1688, with a son Martyn, and purchased large tracts of land in New Jersey now called Jervis Sound. John Jervis was appointed a justice of the peace of New Jersey. Charles, another son, was court painter to King George II, a correspondent of the poet Pope, and translator of "Don Quixote. "Henry Drinker was an ironmaster and ship owner of Philadelphia; was arrested in 1777 and sent to Virginia under pretense of hostility to the American cause; he was a member of the. common council of Philadelphia, and a large landowner; he was born in 1734, and ,died in 1809. The mother of Deborah (Downing) Valentine, Sarah G. Mount, was the daughter of James Mount, whose father was Ezekial, the son of Thomas Mount, who came from England and was the owner of the land on which the city of Louisville, Ky., was built. He had many slaves, and was a man of wealth.
     Referring to the history of the Jacobs family, Mary B. and Emily (Jacobs) Valentine are in direct line of descent from John Jacobs (1) (the first of the family in America), who in 1700 settled on a portion of the Vanbibber tract of land in Providence, Philadelphia County. His death occurred in 1730. His grandson, John Jacobs (3), was the Speaker of the first .General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. His brother, Israel, was a member of Congress in 1791, and another brother, Jesse, held a captain's commission and served in the Revolutionary war, participating in a number of important battles. Ann Bowen, mother of Mary B. and Emily (Jacobs) Valentine, was in direct line of descent from John Bowen (1), of Whiteland, Chester County, who died in 1715. The paternal grandmother of Mary B. and Emily (Jacobs) Valentine was Mary Brinton, of Thornburg, Delaware Co., Penn., who was in line from William Brinton (1), of Staffordshire, England, who settled in Concord, Birmingham Township, Delaware Co., Penn.,in 1684, and was among the earliest converts of George Fox. He bought large tracts of land in Chester County. He was born in 1630, and died in 1700. His son, William, was a member of the Provincial Assembly in 1666, and died in 1751. Joseph, of Thornbury, Delaware Co., Penn., the son of William (2), was an associate judge of Pennsylvania, and a member of the Provincial Assembly. Reuben B. Valentine, of the Valentine brothers coming to Centre County in 1815, was born in 1793, and died in 1841; married Sarah Downing (a sister of Mary Downing, the wife of his brother George), born June 17. 1797, died November 30, 1843, and their children were: (I) Mary married Dr. Elias W. Hale, a wealthy gentleman of influence, of Lewistown, born June 6, 1824, and died February 20, 1892; issue: Sarah, died young, and Ellen, the wife of G. Murray Andrews. (2) George was killed in a rolling mill at the age of five years. William Valentine died unmarried.
     Abraham S. Valentine, another of the original brothers locating in Centre county, died August 29, 1862 aged sixty-eight years; married Clarissa Miles, who died March 3, 1857, aged forty-nine years; was a member of the original firm and the inventor of the ore-washing machine since in general use, the adoption of which effected a revolution in the ore mining of this region. He was possessed of great business ability and foresight (being "a man far ahead of his time "), and it was due largely to his inventions and improvements that the Valentine charcoal iron achieved its widespread reputation. At the outbreak of the war of the Rebellion he was one of the liberal contributors to a subscription for the support of the soldiers' families. Two of his sons, Abram and Bond, were in the service for a time. Clarissa Miles, wife of Abram S., was a daughter of Evan Miles, who died May 10, 1838, in his sixty-ninth year, and of Rebecca George (of the family of George's Hill, Philadelphia), who died July 28, 1845, in her seventy-sixth year; both are buried in the graveyard at Milesburg. Evan Miles was the son of Richard Miles, and the nephew of Col. Samuel Miles, of Revolutionary fame. The latter served as a lieutenant in the expedition to Fort Duquesne; was wounded at Ligonia in an attack made by the French and Indians; commanded a regiment in 1760, and at the end of the campaign was left in command of the forces at Presque Isle (now Erie), Penn. He commanded a regiment in the Revolutionary war under Gen. Washington. While leading his regiment at the battle of Long Island, August 27, 1776, he was captured, and while a prisoner was made a brigadier-general for distinguished service. He was no less distinguished in civil life after the war, holding many responsible positions, among them that of mayor of Philadelphia. Richard Miles married Mary Pugh, who was a member of the Society of Friends, and in 1792 they located at Milesburg, Centre county, where both are buried. He was a captain of militia in the Revolution. His Death occurred December 16, 1823, in the eighty-fifth year of his age, and that of his wife, December 20, 1794, aged forty-four years. Richard Miles was the grandson of Richard, one of the brothers who came from South Wales in 1682 or 1683, and settled at Radnor, Pennsylvania.
     The children of Abraham S. Valentine and Clarissa (Miles) were: (1) Anna married S. Stewart Lyon, and their issue are-John; Anna; Clara, the wife of William Jasper Nicholas; Mary, the wife of Ellis L. Orvis; and Rebecca. (2) Rebecca M. married Evan Pugh, Ph. D., who lived only a few months after marriage, and left no issue; he was a scholarly gentleman and distinguished educator, and was the first president of the Pennsylvania State College. (3) Bond, born March 22, 1834, died April 19, 1889, married Mattie Kenney, who died August 25, 1882, in her forty-sixth year; their children are-Evan and Jane (died in infancy); Bond; and Edward K. The father of these was for years a member of the firm of Shortlidge & Co., of Bellefonte, dealers in grain and coal, and latterly he was engaged in the insurance business. "He was closely attached to the Society of Friends, and was very devoted to their teachings. He was a man possessing a pure Christian character, whom everyone honored. His friends were numbered by the hundreds, who looked upon him as a man worthy of imitation, because he followed as near as he could in the paths of divine teaching. He was courteous, genial, and enjoyed being genial whether in social or business life."(4) Abram S., who resides at Atlantic City, N. J., married Eliza U. Natt, of Philadelphia, daughter of Thomas J. and Anne Natt, of England, and their children are-Charles, Arthur and Edward. Abram S. is connected with the Valentine Iron Works at Bellefonte, and for years took an active part in the business interests of Bellefonte and vicinity. During the war of the Rebellion he was for a time in the service, and contributed largely toward the support of the soldiers and their families. (5) Evan M., who resides in Philadelphia, married Mary J. Taylor, of Doylestown, who died. Their children are Harry S. and Abram S. (6) Samuel and (7) Blanchard died in infancy, (8) and (9) Clara and Mary, respectively, unmarried. (10) Henry C. now connected with the Valentine Iron Works, married Sarah, a daughter of Thomas, and grand-.daughter of Judge Thomas Burnside, and their children are-Stanley, Helen, Rebecca and Henry. Henry C. is a member of the borough council.
     Bond Valentine, the youngest of the original Valentine brothers, did not remain in the iron business long, but early turned his attention to the law. His birth occurred in 1798. His early paternal training was such as to instill in his mind those principles of morality which were the guiding and controlling influence of his after life. He became a distinguished lawyer, and served in the General Assembly, 1830-32, from Centre County. In 1842, influenced by conscientious convictions, he abandoned the law that he might devote his life to the public ministry in the Society of Friends. The Friends Review in an obituary notice, said: "His sterling integrity and the well-known simplicity of his character, averse to mere forms, won for him the increased confidence and respect of the community, and his addresses have been marked by impassioned earnestness. In social circles our friend was very attractive, without reserve, original, genial and simple."
     To his first wife, Lydia, daughter of John and Susannah (Ashbridge) Fairland, farming people of near West Chester, Penn., and of English descent, two children were born, the elder of whom died in infancy; the other is Robert Valentine, who has long been at the head of the firm of Valentine & Co., of Bellefonte. Robert Valentine is one of the prominent and wealthy citizens of Bellefonte. His second wife, to whom he was married in 1861, was Mary Natt, daughter of Thomas J. and Anne Natt, born in England, and their children are: Emily and Julia, the latter being the wife of Dr. Bond, of Baltimore. The homes of Robert Valentine and family, and the family of Reuben B. Valentine, are particularly striking, and are of the several imposing and beautiful places of the mountain town of Bellefonte. The former, a modern built, native stone structure, commodious and substantial, stands on one of the highest points of the town, and is very commanding in point of view. While the other is located a short distance from the town on a beautifully situated farm, "Burnham," this suburban countryseat is surrounded by spacious grounds, and the old grey limestone house, built by Reuben B. Valentine in 1856, is of the Colonial style. with Robert Valentine at Citation.8
