5. "Historical Background" - Th New England Family: "Probably from the Wells-Bruton group, in 1623 came John Balch to Massachusets and built his home in North Beverly, which is still standing, the oldest house in New England, and held for preservation by trustees representing the family. His son Benjamin lived for 86 years in the house and raised a large family of whom there are many descendants from four sons and five daughters."2

Benjamin Balch Source: Michael Edward Dobson (dobfam4@juno.com): Benjamin was the first male child born in Plymouth Bay Colony. He was born in what was then known as "Naumkeg" (an Indian name) in Sagamoreship. This colony later became Salem, MA. He was a liberal, having inherited his father's spirit of tolerance and independence of thought and action. Was once arrested because he gave a night's lodging to a stranger on foot without the approbation of the selectmen. In a day when parental authority was unquestioned, he forbore to insist upon baptism of his 13 children, leaving it to their desires. He lived in the Beverly house, now an historical site owned and maintained by the Beverly Historical Association and open to visitors.

In "Descendants of Horatio James Balch and Sophronia Allard" by Samuel W. Balch, 1928, we find the following: "Benjamin Balch was born at Beverly in the house built by his father and lived in it throughout his life.

     Gayen Miller is thought to be a son of Robert & Elizabeth Miller (OR, John Miller 1633-1714 and Ann Clibborn 1630-1675). He was a farmer and a Quaker, who married about 1695 to Margaret Henderson, daughter of William & Katherine Henderson. Margaret died in 1743.
     In 1702, Gayen purchased from James Logan, attorney for William Penn, 200 acres on the east branch of Red Clay Creek, including what in 1936 was the northeast quarter of the town of Kennett Square, PA. In 1714-15, he was a member of the Pennsylvania Provincial Assembly. In 1707, he was one of the founders of Kennett Meeting. They purchased a piece of ground in 1710, and built a meeting house. Prior to that, the meetings were held in Gayen Miller's house.
     Gayen & Margaret had 12 children: James, William, Robert, Sarah, Mary, Patrick, Samuel, Elizabeth, Joseph, Benjamin, John, & George--who married out of meeting (to a non-Quaker).

Manor of Steyning or Letitia's Manor
In 1699, William Penn directed Henry Hollingsworth, deputy-surveyor of Chester County, to lay out a tract of 30,000 acres of land for his two children, William and Letitia Penn. This survey included all of the present Township of New Garden and the greater part of Kennett, with several thousand acres in the northern part of New Castle County. The large survey was divided, the eastern part, consisting of 15,500 acres, being conveyed to Letitia Penn, and the western part, of 14,500 acres, to her brother William Penn, Jr. Letitia's tract was confirmed to her by her father's patent, dated Oct 23, 1701, in consideration of one "Bever skinn" yearly and "the fatherly love and natural affection I bear to her my said daughter." This tract received the name of the Manor of Steyning, also called Letitia's Manor, with the privilege "To have and to hold a Court Baron with all things whatsoever to a Court Baron belonging, and to have and to hold view of Ffranck pledge for the conservation of the peace and the better Government of ye tenants holding or hereafter to hold of the said Mannor." Letitia Penn, who had come over to Pennsylvania with her father on his second visit in 1699, returned with him to England in 1701, before her departure by power of attorney authorizing James Logan and Edward Pennington to dispose of land and to have the management of her property here. Pennington soon died and Logan was her sole attorney, until in 1711, having married William Aubrey, a London merchant, Letitia and her husband executed another power of attorney to Logan and Samuel Carpenter. The land described in Letitia Penn's patent included nearly all of the Township of Kennett, excepting a few small tracts already conveyed to settlers, and although for some years known by its manorial name, it soon came to be called Kennett[1].
[1] The name Kennett, it is thought, was suggested by Francis Smith, who in 1686 had taken up 200 acres of land at the mouth of Pocopson Creek, within the original limits of the township, and who had come from Devizes in Wiltshire, England, in which county there is a creek and a village called Kennett. Kennett is first mentioned on the court records in February 1705, when Henry Peirce appeared in court as constable for that township. In 1706, he was appointed supervisor of the highways, and Ezekiel Harlan (son of George Harlan), the heaviest tax payer in the Township, succeeded him as constable. George Harlan and GAYEN MILLER were probably the first of the Irish Friends to secure land in Kennett. In 1702, MILLER purchased 200 acres on the east branch of Red Clay Creek, including the eastern part of the present Borough of Kennett Square.[1]
[1] Kennett Square was laid out and named about 1768 or 1769; for in a deed of 9 Mo., 29, 1768, William Dixson conveyed to Joseph Musgrave a tract of 3 acres in Kennett Township, "in a place intended to be laid out for an inland town called _______ town," the blank indicating that a name had not yet been chosen; and the next year Dixson conveyed to Musgrave another tract "near a place called Kennett Square." Both grantor and grantee in this transaction were of Irish Quaker stock. He was elected to the Provincial Assembly in 1714.[2]
[2]Pennsylvania Archives, 2nd Series, IX, 686 Harlan, as we have previously stated, settled at first at Centre in New Castle County, but soon moved up the Brandywine and purchased 470 acres in Kennett, now Pennsybury Township. While living here he had for his neighbors, over the creek in a great bend, a settlement of Indians. After they had gone away he obtained, in 1701, a warrant for 200 acres in this bend of the creek, the land being granted "in regard of the great trouble and charge he bore in fencing and maintaining the same for the said Indians while living thereon." George Harlan was elected to the Provincial Assembly from New Castle County in 1695, and from Chester County in 1712.[3]
[3] Ibid., 652, 686 Of the forty-three persons taxed in Kennett, in 1715, there were nine Irish Friends, as follows: GAYEN MILLER, 8s. 6d; Michael Harlan, 5s. 6d; Ezekiel Harlan, 12s. 6d; Aaron Harlan, 5s. 6d; Moses Harlan, 4s. 2d; Valentine Hollingsworth, 2s. 9d; James Harlan, 2s. 6d; Joshua Harlan ...
From: History of Delaware County, Pennsylvania by George Smith, MD 1862 and Immigration of the Irish Quakers into Pennsylvania 1682-1750 by Albert Cook Myers, 1969.
"By 1704 Kennett appears to be organized as a township and returns a constable to the court" [source: http://www.kennett-square.pa.us/HTML/manor.htm].

Gayen Miller was mentioned in a land transaction in 1702 at East branch of Red Clay Creek, Kennett Township, Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA,
Memo: per Cook [1902:128-9]: "George Harlan and Gayen Miller were probably the first of the Irish Friends to secure land in Kennett. In 1702, Miller purchased 200 acres on the east branch of Red Clay Creek, including the eastern part of the present Borough of Kenett Square."8

Gayen Miller immigrated in 1702 to Kennet Township, Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA; From Futhey & Cope [1881: 659]: "MILLER, Gaten, with Margaret, his wife, was one of the first settlers in Kennet township, where he bought land in 1702."
From Cope [1901:301]: "Gayen Miller, with Margaret his wife, daughter of Dr. Patrick Henderson came to Chester county and, by deed of Aug. 17, 1702, purchased 200 acres of land in the Manor of Staineing, now Kennet township, close by the present Kennet Square. It has been thought they came from Ireland, but the evidence is not conclusive."1,2,9
Gayen Miller was mentioned in a land transaction in 1712 at New Garden Township, Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA,
Memo: per Cook [1902:325]: "...in 1712 acquired 700 acres in New Garden."9

Gayen Miller was a witness to the will." Potts says "See Will Book A 1, page 10, Chester County records."

State of Virginia.

Margaret Lail Hopkins, "Index tothe Tithables ofLoudoun Co., VA , 1758-1786
Shelburne Parish 1781-1786.

By 1782 Thomas and family were living on Cooper's 150 acre estat e in Loudoun Co., VA
Ref: Loudoun Co., VA Tax Records for 1782 and 1784; Personal Pr operty Taxes for 1782-85-86 and Loudoun Co. Tithable: 1758-1799 , Reel No. 99 at VA State Archives, Richmond, VA.

1788
He remained in Loudoun Co. until 1788, when he moved to Prince W illiam Co. VA. Where he lived gets confusing here because he i s taxed for personal property in both Prince William Co. and Woo d Co. for the years 1804 and 1805. It is possible that Thomas Mo unt moved to Wood Co. in 1804, because both Thomas Mount and hi s son Thomas Mount were in Prince William Co- in 1803, but ther e is only one Thomas Mount on the Prince William Co. Property Ta x lists for 1804 and by 1806 only Wlliam Mount is in Prince Will iam Co. 5

To further confuse the issue, is a deed in Harrison Co. VA date d July 11, 1788 whereby Thomas Mount as the assignee of John Dre w, who was the assignee of Jonathan Folle, paid two pounds to th e Treasury of the Commonwealth of Virginia for a Certificate i n Right of Settlement given by, The Commissioners Adjusting th e titles to Unpatented Lands in the Districts of Monogalla and Y ohagania, for three hundred and fifty-five acres. 6.

Elijah Mount, sold his one twelfth part of this property on Nove mber 7, 1821, to William Martian Jr. for fifty dollars.7
On December 23, 1829, Mary Mount Barnett, daughter of Thomas Mou nt sold one twelfth share of the property to Wlliam Martian Jr . for fifty dollars.8
On July 10, 1837, Hannah Mount Maddox, sold her one twelfth shar e of the land to Wlliam Martin Jr. for over three hundred dollar s.9

When Thomas left Prince William Co., he moved to Wood Co. wher e he had purchased 1,000 acres of land from Henry Enoch on Marc h 12, 1801 10. He subsequently purchased thirty-one and a quarte r acres from John Lockart in 1804.11 On June 6, 1804, the deed f or 1,000 acres from Henry Enoch was rerecorded. 12 However, whe n Thomas sold the land in Wood Co. to his son-in-law, John Barne tt, on March 5, 1807 only one hundred and Twenty one and half ac res remained. The rest of the one thousand acres, or eight hundr ed and seventy eight and a half acres, Thomas had lost in Chance ry Court to James Giflespe and to the heirs of Robert Thorton.1 3 Thomas, on February 25, 1805, gave his power of attorney to Hu gh Phelps to try and recover some of the money he had given to H enry Enoch. 14

According to a document by Isaac Shelbey the Governor of the Com monwealth of Kentucky, signed January 31, 1795, John Holder an d others were granted a certain tract of land containing 60,00 0 acres of land in Fayette Co. in consideration of eight Land Of ffice Treasury Warrants. This land was next to 49,665 114 acre s of John Holder and John Taylor's survey. 16


On September 22,1789, John Holder and John Taylor of Fayette Co . Disirict of Kentucky,
Commonwealth of Virginia and Thomas Mount 53 of the County of Pr ince William Commonwealth of Virginia agree that They would pa y 1,500 pounds to Thomas.

The conditions of the obligation was that John Holder would assi gn six thousand and fifty and one quarter acres of land, part o f a survey of 50,000 acres of land in the District of Kentucky . The land to be laid off in such a manner as to make it equal i n value to the same quality of land in any other part of the sur vey as near as it may be possible to do by disinterested parties , with out any expense to Thomas except that which would have be en incurred if the warrant had been located over his own name.

"Now when John Holder shall comply with the conditions of this o bligation and shall be carried fully into effect, then this obli gation to be void else to remain in full force and virtue in law , signed John Holder and John Taylor." Thomas agreed to bea r a proportionable part of the loss of any land that may be t ak en by prior claims interfering with the respective survey. "I a m to have 6, 055 1/4 acres out of 50,000 acres that is I am to lo ose in proportion as 6,055 1/4 is to 50,000 acres. Signed Thoma s Mount."

It appears from the court records in the case of Thomas Mount v s John Holder etal, that when Thomas arrived In Kentucky he wa s unable to get title to the land he had paid for, nor was he ab le to get his money back, so he sued, John Taylor, Dorthea Combs , Sophia Holder, John Holder, Caleb Holder, Rachel Holder and Fr ances Holder. The Sheriff of Clarke Co. was to summon them to ap pear in Lexington before the Circuit Court of Fayette Co., on Ju ne 3,1806, to answer a bill in chancery against them and other s by Thomas Mount. 17 The bill in chancery was filed by Thomas' s lawyer, Henry Clay. 18

Although the case was filed on March 4,1804, the case was contin ued and continued then on June 26,1817, the defendants in the ca se replied through their lawyer, Richard C. Holder, they demande d strict legal proof that the allegations as set forth in the su it were true. 19

On August 11, 1817, Thomas notified: Samuel Combs and Theordia C ombs, his wife, Richard R. Williams and Catherine Williams, hi s wife, Thomas Jones and Lydia Jones, his wife, Edward McGuire a nd Fanny McGuire, his wife Richard C. Holder, Caleb Holder and J ohn C. Holder, heirs and representatives of John Holder deceased , that he would take their depositions at the home of Samuel Com bs in January in Marysville, KY., on the first Monday of Novembe r 1817. He would also take depositions from Samuel Canby and oth ers on the second Monday of October 1817 at the house of James C hambers in Marysville, KY and would take secondary depositions a t the house of May Taliaferro in Winchester, KY. and so on. On O ctober 7,1817 Elijah Mount 158, swore before the Justice of th e Peace, that he delivered the attorney of the defendants wit h a true copy of the matter and on the same day served Samuel R . Combs, Thomas Jones and Edmond McGuire with true copies and o n October 4, 1817 he served Richard C. Holder with a copy.20

An affdavit was obtained from Sam Ganby, on October 4, 1819, on e of the witness to the agreement between Thomas, John Holder an d John Taylor, that the agreement was signed at Ballstown, Frede rick Co. Virginia at Charles Smith's house on September 22,1789 , Ganby was at this time a resident of Jefferson Co. Indiana 2 1 Another affdavit was obtained from Sam Granby in Warren Co. O hio on November 1817 repeats his above affdavit.22      On Januar y 8,1818 in Lebanon, Warren Co. Ohio, still another affdavit tak en, repeating what had already stated.23

During the September 1818 of the Fayette Co. Circuit Court, th e Court was advised that Thomas Mount had, "Departed this life" , and that the suit be revised in the names of his heirs, whic h are listed.24      On November 15, 1818, a deposition of John Joh nston, who stated he was well acquainted with the Mount family , lists the heirs of Thomas Mount.25

Finally, during the March 1825 term, the Fayette County Circui t Court pronounced an interlocutory decree. As a result, a surve y of John Holder's 50,612 _ acres was made, by John Wilkerson an d Thomas Hart, and the amount of 6,556 _ acres was marked for Th omas Mount's heirs. The Court, after the survey directed the def endants to transfer the property on or before Jun 1,1826, by dee d.

The land was transferred to Thomas Mount's heirs on June 26, 182 6.27 So now Thomas Mount's heirs have the land their father purc hased in 1795, right? Wrong! On October 7, 1829, the Court of Ap peals for the State of Kentucky, because of errors, returned th e case to the Circuit Court in Fayette Co., for retrial.28 So b ack to the court they went. On February 6,1830, Henry Clay file d an amended bill of revivor naming each of the heirs of Thoma s Mount as parties to the suit.29

On May 24,1830, the sheriff of Fayette Co. went to summon the de fendant to court again.30 On May 24,1830, Henry Clay filed an a mended bill of revivor, naming the heirs of the heirs of Thoma s Mount ie. the grandchildren of Thomas Mount.31 1835.32(?) Ac cording to a publication in The Kentucky Reporter, the case wa s to be heard again on June 24,

Clay had to file still another amended bill of revivor, undate d because the heirs
kept dying. 33

On September 15,1835 the Mount heirs again won their case in th e Fayette Co. Circuit Court, and again a survey of the land wa s taken and again the same area as had previously been awarded t o the Mounts was given to them again.34

The final irony of this whole sordid mess is that on April 8, 18 48, William Beatty, one of the heirs of Thomas Mount and the aut horized agent for several more of them and the attorneys for th e whole of them went forth and demanded possession of the land d ecreed to the heirs from the persons he found on the land. All p ersons on the land claimed that they had bought the land from Ja mes Gay, who had purchased the land from a, Bryant, in 1819 or 1 820, who represented himself and acted as the agent of the heir s of John Cafre. All the possessors of the land refused to deliv er to him, William Beatty, possession of the land or to recogniz e his title or that of the Mount heirs.35 That was the end of t hat.

Thomas, after discovering the 6,050 1/4 acres he believed he ha d purchased but could not gain possession of, moved to near Shel byville, KY, on both sides of Little Bullskin Creek, and purchas ed another "plantation" of 227 acres from a Merfield.36

In Thomas's will dated October 30,1815, proved May 1818, other t han the above mentioned land, he directs that 1500 acres of lan d in Harrison Co. WV and a tract of land he purchased from Danie l Moon, in Franklin Co. KY be sold and the proceeds be divided a mong his heirs. These pieces of property we have not located.4

He married Thomazine Valentine, and had eight children: William, who became a walthy citizen of Kentucky, and whose daughter isnow living in Harrisburg, Penn; Robert V., Isaac; Merdica, who also lived in Kentucky; Mrs. Eliza Thomas; Mrs. Mary Ann Harris; Mrs. Jane Harris; and Mrs. Rachel Miles.
     Robert V. Miller, the father of our subject, was a native of Chester county, and after the death of his father he went to Alexandria, Va., and lived with his uncle, Mordica Miller, until 1815, at which time
he came to Centre county with his uncles, Valentine Bros., and worked in an iron store at Bellefonte..." at Citation.11
Reuben Miller 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.12 Reuben Miller was a mentioned with Warwick Miller and Elizabeth Price between 1763 and 1777 at Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA.13
