He was called Jack by most everyone that knew him so I shall call him Jack from here on to you. Being that he and his father had the same name his father was always know[N] as John. After Jack was gone I had many thing to get straightened up and over into my name and I did most all of this myself without professiona help. Took time but not nearly as long as if I had had hired someone to do it for me. Besides many adjustments that had to be made after 47 years of married life. Then last April my brother who lives here was injured badly in an accident - one leg was badly crushed between the bumpers of two pick-ups. He was getting tools from his company pick-up when another pickup ran into his and caught him between. He works for an untility company and the car that hit him was a Ventura County pick-up. Doesn't seem to be a reason for it at all. However, he has been on crutches since that time and most of the time in a cast. Went to Santa Barbara to a Specialist recently. The hospitalized him again and did some cleaning out of the area and will do a graft in about three months and then will be in a cast again for three months. This is how part of my time has been spent."

    Cash M. Routh has for the past quarter of a century been influential in the development of Nebraska in various lines, and he and his wife now have a very comfortable home in Valley county, where he has developed an excellent farm. Mr. Routh was born in Warren county, Illinois, September 9, 1861, sixth child of David and Eliza (Collins) Routh who were parents of seven sons and four daughters. Both parents were natives of Indiana, the father born in Floyd county, in 1827. He was a pioneer settler of Illinois and Missouri and died in the latter state October 16, 1910. The mother died in the same state, January 21, 1892. The family located in Nodaway county, Missouri, in the spring of 1882. Of their eleven children the following seven now survive: Elza is married and living in Norfolk, Nebraska; Cash W. of this sketch, the only other member of the family in Nebraska; three daughters, Mrs. Harvey Churchill, Mrs. Charles Umphrey and Mrs. Ed McIntire, all of Missouri; John, of Oklahoma; Edward, of Marshalltown, Iowa.
    Mr. Routh was reared on a farm, accompanied his parents to Missouri in boyhood, and lived at home until he attained his majority. He was married in Nodaway county, September 11, 1882, to Miss Minnie Weddel, daughter of Joseph M. and Julia (Bugby) Weddel, and one of their three children. Both parents are deceased. Their son Alfred E. lives in Valley county and their daughter Cora B., (Mrs. Dade M. Quigley), lives in Hayes county. In September, 1885, Mr. Routh and wife came to Jefferson county, Nebraska where they rented a farm for a time and later bought land. In September, 1895, Mr. Routh became connected with the Omaha Van and Storage Company and lived for about ten years at Omaha, In 1905 he purchased the northwest quarter of section fourteen, township seventeen, range sixteen, Valley county, to which place he moved in March, 1907, intending it as a permanent residence. He devoted his place to grain cultivation and stock raising and is recognized as an upright, desirable citizen. He and his wife have won many friends in their new home.
    Mr. Routh well remembers the blizzard of Jannary 12, 1888, when he tried in vain to get his cattle into shelter; however they drifted in a plum thicket in a canyon and none were lost.
    Mr. Routh is republican in politics and a member of the Modern Woodmen of America.

    Angler Drowns In Rushing Lochsa River - Kooskia - The body of Marion Eller of Peck was recovered Tuesday from the Lochsa River, where he drowned while on a fishing trip Monday with his wife.
    Authorities recovered the body shortly after noon above the mouth of Pete King Creek on the Lochsa, about 29 miles from Kooskia. The body had washed up on a small island in the center of the stream. The man had been missing since about noon Monday but the accident was not reported to the Idaho County sheriff's office at Grangeville until late Monday night.
    Mrs. Eller said she last saw her 61 year old husband before noon Monday when he was fishing in the Lochsa about seven miles above Lowell. She had remained in the car reading. She said she searched about three miles upstream and was assited by another party of fishermen. She later called friends in Peck, who with Lester Rasmussen, Peck mayor, formed a searching party late Monday to look for him. Richard Coomer, Kamiah police chief, and others joined in the search and later Idaho County Sheriff Bud Taylor and Deputy Dick Seay also assisted.
    Tuesday Ben Johnson, a skin diver from Kooskia, and authorities returned to the scene, and continued the search. Eller's fishing rod was found about a quarter of a mile downstream from the point where he was last seen, and shortly after noon the body was recovered.
    Eller had been employed as a night watchman at the Riverside Lumber Co. at Orofino for the last 11 years.
    He was born May 31, 1899, at Greencreek, the son of Mr. and Mrs. James Eller, farmers in the area. In 1919 he moved to Waha, where he farmed until 1934, when he moved to Lewiston Orchards. He was employed as a maintenance man for Potlatch Forests, Inc., until moving to Peck in 1943.
    Married at Lewiston - He was married May 24, 1924, to Gladys Duncan, at Lewiston. His wife taught school at Peck for a number of years. He was a member of the Peck Methodist Church.
    Surviving besides his wife are a daughter, Mrs. Dale Corn of Payette; three sisters, Mrs. Francis Peltier of Lewiston, Mrs. Horace Quigley of Portland and Mrs. John McNeil of San Lorenzo, Calif.; three brothers, William and Carl of Lewiston and Arthur of Stites, his mother, Mrs. Dolly Eller of Lewiston, and three grandchildren.
    The funeral will be held Saturday at 10 a.m. at Gilbert Chapel at Orofineo with the Rev. Carl Beal, pastor of the Peck Methodist Church, officiating. Committal services will be held at noon at Normal Hill Cemetery at Lewiston.

Also, she was of the township of Upper Alloway Creek but late of the City of Philadelphia and a widow at the time of her death in 1797.

In a copy of the Men's Minutes of the Egg Harbour-Cape May Monthly Meeting of Friends, I found the following: February 7, 1763, Isaac Somers, son of Samuel Somers requests a certificate to join Salem Monthly Meeting.

    Quakers worshipping at Pilesgrove meeting were members of Salem Monthly Meeting until Pilesgrove was "set off" as a monthly meeting. Therefore, Isaac Somers (Summers) was born under the care of Salem Monthly Meeting. His parents, Isaac and Elizabeth, were married in 1765, not under the care of the meeting, but acknowledged that they should have gone through the proper procedure. Both apologized and regained their membership in 1770. Their children's births are listed in the Salem Monthly Meeting records, including Isaac and his sister Elizabeth who were born before the parents were restored to membership.

  14. [S10627] Erin Courtney, "Courtney," e-mail to Jenny Rasmusson, 9/25/2006, So now we have Isaac and Elizabeth (Davis) Somers in Salem County sometime around 1765. Their children are all listed as being born in Pilesgrove: ISAAC, Elizabeth (1769), Jacob (1771) , Rebecca (1774)and David (1777). The birthdate given for Isaac is 20 Aug 1767. I had originally dismissed him as "our" Isaac because that same birthdate is also given for another Isaac (John+Hannah>Isaac+Unknown>Isaac+Maryann Steelman>Isaac+Susannah Conover. The Isaac who married Susannah Conover died in Galloway Township, Gloucester in 1827. I think it is very likely that someone put the wrong date on the wrong Issac. That is why I didn't put too much faith in this other one because I thought it was the same person....if that makes sense. Also in 1777, Isaac and Elizabeth deeded land to Samuel Lippencott. I couldn't tell exactly where the land was but am checking on it and figure they were still in Pilesgrove. Tons of Lippencotts were in Pilesgrove from early on.

    Dear Sir or Madam,
    I would like to obtain a copy of a deed that is contained in "An Inventory of the Jennings-Clark-Edlridge Family Papers, 1768-1871". As I am not exactly sure what information you might need, I have copied and pasted the information from your website below.

    Ser. 4. Legal Papers, 1768-1803, n.d.
    Deeds, filed in Deeds chart case, 1768-1803

    Isaac & Elizabeth Somers to Samuel Lippincott

    1777
    I received a copy of the deed dated 5/4/1777 from Isaac Somers and Elizabeth to Samuel Lipencott.

    The deed says that Isaac Somers and Elizabeth, his wife, of Pilesgrove Twp.sell the land Samuel Lipencott of the same place. "Whereas William Gerrard and Mary his wife of the County and Province....did sell and convey unto Samuel Somers of Great Eggharbour a certain tract of land situate in Uper Penns Neck in the County of Salem and Province aforesaid bounding on the River Delawy containing four hundred acres be the same more or less and the said Samuel Somers at his death did give and bequeath the same unto his son Isaac Somers by will bearing date..."

    It goes on to say that Isaac and Elizabeth were paid one hundred and six pounds and 5 shillings. It gives a description of where the land was which doesn't make one lick of sense to me except that it started at a stake one rod from the tide bank. It mentions mines, minerals, fishing, fowling, hawking, hunting and a meadow. Must have been some prime land.

    Noting much else worth mentioning. It does appear that both Isaac and Elizabeth could at least write their names as the signatures at the bottom are all different. It's hard to piece it all together because they send me 3 sheets of 11X17 paper. It appears that at the bottom Samuel deeds the land to a Joseph Lippincott in consideration of one hundred and fifty pounds current money on 13th day of December in the year of our Lord 1777.

  21. [S10627] Erin Courtney, "Courtney," e-mail to Jenny Rasmusson, 9/25/2006, After 1794, the family fell under the care of Pilesgrove Monthly Meeting, and the children's births are also listed in that meeting's birth record books- its minutes start in 1794. Pilesgrove MM is not completely abstracted, so a search of its records is more involved. I don't find a marriage for Isaac, the son, before 1800, but Pilesgrove MM is where you should find more information.
    Also, in the "History and Genealogy of Fenwick's Colony", it mentions a Friends Meeting established at Pedricktown, in the township of Upper Penns Neck, it being a branch of Pilesgrove meeting. The Somers are listed as one of the principal families. It goes on to say that the Somers family emigrated to that county from Great Egg Harbor and that one of the brothers purchased a large farm bordering on the Delaware River, not far from Old Man's Creek. Looking at a map of Salem Co. from 1795, Old Man's Creek is in Upper Penns Neck and runs right into the Delaware.

  26. [S10627] Erin Courtney, "Courtney," e-mail to Jenny Rasmusson, 9/25/2006, So now we have Isaac and Elizabeth (Davis) Somers in Salem County sometime around 1765. Their children are all listed as being born in Pilesgrove: ISAAC, Elizabeth (1769), Jacob (1771) , Rebecca (1774)and David (1777). The birthdate given for Isaac is 20 Aug 1767. I had originally dismissed him as "our" Isaac because that same birthdate is also given for another Isaac (John+Hannah>Isaac+Unknown>Isaac+Maryann Steelman>Isaac+Susannah Conover. The Isaac who married Susannah Conover died in Galloway Township, Gloucester in 1827. I think it is very likely that someone put the wrong date on the wrong Issac. That is why I didn't put too much faith in this other one because I thought it was the same person....if that makes sense. Also in 1777, Isaac and Elizabeth deeded land to Samuel Lippencott. I couldn't tell exactly where the land was but am checking on it and figure they were still in Pilesgrove. Tons of Lippencotts were in Pilesgrove from early on.

  6. [S10627] Erin Courtney, "Courtney," e-mail to Jenny Rasmusson, 9/25/2006, At any rate, I've come up with yet another thought about Isaac's parents. I'll try not ramble and lay it out as best I can. My newest theory has our Issac as a descendant of John Somers and Hannah Hodgkins.
    
    First of all, I am truly beginning to believe that Isaac and Hannah were not born in England. There is no mention of it on any of the primary sources. The biographical sketches were several generations after the fact....perhaps there was a fortune but it was John Somers who left England. An article from The Daily Union History of Atlantic City and County gives the following: He was a Quaker who came to Upper Dublin PA in 1681, married Hannah Hodgkins (2nd wife) and then moved soon after to Egg Harbor. At some point somewhere, I know I also read that he was basically asked to leave England because he had become a Quaker and that he came from a prominent family. That might be the whole came from England and left a family fortune thing.

    I've written Steelman, Scull, and Ireland. Those men settled in Gt. Egg Harbor 1690-1695. The Somers owned the Beach, (now Ocean City, N. J., upper part). Steelman, Scull, Ireland, Somers owned Absecom Beach (now Atlantic City, N. J.). Gloucester Co. at one time extended from the Delaware river to the sea.

Little Egg Harbor (see records) is now Tuckerton, N. J.
    John Scull, one of the "Overseerer" (see record) came to Gt. Egg Har' year 1695. First meeting (Friends) was held in his house. He d. 1745. His eldest child John.

  10. [S10627] Erin Courtney, "Courtney," e-mail to Jenny Rasmusson, 9/25/2006, So now we have Isaac and Elizabeth (Davis) Somers in Salem County sometime around 1765. Their children are all listed as being born in Pilesgrove: ISAAC, Elizabeth (1769), Jacob (1771) , Rebecca (1774) and David (1777). The birthdate given for Isaac is 20 Aug 1767. I had originally dismissed him as "our" Isaac because that same birthdate is also given for another Isaac (John+Hannah>Isaac+Unknown>Isaac+Maryann Steelman>Isaac+Susannah Conover. The Isaac who married Susannah Conover died in Galloway Township, Gloucester in 1827. I think it is very likely that someone put the wrong date on the wrong Issac. That is why I didn't put too much faith in this other one because I thought it was the same person....if that makes sense. Also in 1777, Isaac and Elizabeth deeded land to Samuel Lippencott. I couldn't tell exactly where the land was but am checking on it and figure they were still in Pilesgrove. Tons of Lippencotts were in Pilesgrove from early on.

    Dear Sir or Madam,
    I would like to obtain a copy of a deed that is contained in "An Inventory of the Jennings-Clark-Edlridge Family Papers, 1768-1871". As I am not exactly sure what information you might need, I have copied and pasted the information from your website below.

    Ser. 4. Legal Papers, 1768-1803, n.d.
    Deeds, filed in Deeds chart case, 1768-1803

    Isaac & Elizabeth Somers to Samuel Lippincott

    1777
    I received a copy of the deed dated 5/4/1777 from Isaac Somers and Elizabeth to Samuel Lipencott.

    The deed says that Isaac Somers and Elizabeth, his wife, of Pilesgrove Twp.sell the land Samuel Lipencott of the same place. "Whereas William Gerrard and Mary his wife of the County and Province....did sell and convey unto Samuel Somers of Great Eggharbour a certain tract of land situate in Uper Penns Neck in the County of Salem and Province aforesaid bounding on the River Delawy containing four hundred acres be the same more or less and the said Samuel Somers at his death did give and bequeath the same unto his son Isaac Somers by will bearing date..."

    It goes on to say that Isaac and Elizabeth were paid one hundred and six pounds and 5 shillings. It gives a description of where the land was which doesn't make one lick of sense to me except that it started at a stake one rod from the tide bank. It mentions mines, minerals, fishing, fowling, hawking, hunting and a meadow. Must have been some prime land.

    Noting much else worth mentioning. It does appear that both Isaac and Elizabeth could at least write their names as the signatures at the bottom are all different. It's hard to piece it all together because they send me 3 sheets of 11X17 paper. It appears that at the bottom Samuel deeds the land to a Joseph Lippincott in consideration of one hundred and fifty pounds current money on 13th day of December in the year of our Lord 1777.

  6. [S10627] Erin Courtney, "Courtney," e-mail to Jenny Rasmusson, 9/25/2006, So now we have Isaac and Elizabeth (Davis) Somers in Salem County sometime around 1765. Their children are all listed as being born in Pilesgrove: ISAAC, Elizabeth (1769), Jacob (1771) , Rebecca (1774) and David (1777). The birthdate given for Isaac is 20 Aug 1767. I had originally dismissed him as "our" Isaac because that same birthdate is also given for another Isaac (John+Hannah>Isaac+Unknown>Isaac+Maryann Steelman>Isaac+Susannah Conover. The Isaac who married Susannah Conover died in Galloway Township, Gloucester in 1827. I think it is very likely that someone put the wrong date on the wrong Issac. That is why I didn't put too much faith in this other one because I thought it was the same person....if that makes sense. Also in 1777, Isaac and Elizabeth deeded land to Samuel Lippencott. I couldn't tell exactly where the land was but am checking on it and figure they were still in Pilesgrove. Tons of Lippencotts were in Pilesgrove from early on.

    Dear Sir or Madam,
    I would like to obtain a copy of a deed that is contained in "An Inventory of the Jennings-Clark-Edlridge Family Papers, 1768-1871". As I am not exactly sure what information you might need, I have copied and pasted the information from your website below.

    Ser. 4. Legal Papers, 1768-1803, n.d.
    Deeds, filed in Deeds chart case, 1768-1803

    Isaac & Elizabeth Somers to Samuel Lippincott

    1777
    I received a copy of the deed dated 5/4/1777 from Isaac Somers and Elizabeth to Samuel Lipencott.

    The deed says that Isaac Somers and Elizabeth, his wife, of Pilesgrove Twp.sell the land Samuel Lipencott of the same place. "Whereas William Gerrard and Mary his wife of the County and Province....did sell and convey unto Samuel Somers of Great Eggharbour a certain tract of land situate in Uper Penns Neck in the County of Salem and Province aforesaid bounding on the River Delawy containing four hundred acres be the same more or less and the said Samuel Somers at his death did give and bequeath the same unto his son Isaac Somers by will bearing date..."

    It goes on to say that Isaac and Elizabeth were paid one hundred and six pounds and 5 shillings. It gives a description of where the land was which doesn't make one lick of sense to me except that it started at a stake one rod from the tide bank. It mentions mines, minerals, fishing, fowling, hawking, hunting and a meadow. Must have been some prime land.

    Noting much else worth mentioning. It does appear that both Isaac and Elizabeth could at least write their names as the signatures at the bottom are all different. It's hard to piece it all together because they send me 3 sheets of 11X17 paper. It appears that at the bottom Samuel deeds the land to a Joseph Lippincott in consideration of one hundred and fifty pounds current money on 13th day of December in the year of our Lord 1777.

    Quakers worshipping at Pilesgrove meeting were members of Salem Monthly Meeting until Pilesgrove was "set off" as a monthly meeting. Therefore, Isaac Somers (Summers) was born under the care of Salem Monthly Meeting. His parents, Isaac and Elizabeth, were married in 1765, not under the care of the meeting, but acknowledged that they should have gone through the proper procedure. Both apologized and regained their membership in 1770. Their children's births are listed in the Salem Monthly Meeting records, including Isaac and his sister Elizabeth who were born before the parents were restored to membership.

[S10627] Erin Courtney, "Courtney," e-mail to Jenny Rasmusson, 9/25/2006, After 1794, the family fell under the care of Pilesgrove Monthly Meeting, and the children's births are also listed in that meeting's birth record books- its minutes start in 1794. Pilesgrove MM is not completely abstracted, so a search of its records is more involved. I don't find a marriage for Isaac, the son, before 1800, but Pilesgrove MM is where you should find more information.
    Also, in the "History and Genealogy of Fenwick's Colony", it mentions a Friends Meeting established at Pedricktown, in the township of Upper Penns Neck, it being a branch of Pilesgrove meeting. The Somers are listed as one of the principal families. It goes on to say that the Somers family emigrated to that county from Great Egg Harbor and that one of the brothers purchased a large farm bordering on the Delaware River, not far from Old Man's Creek. Looking at a map of Salem Co. from 1795, Old Man's Creek is in Upper Penns Neck and runs right into the Delaware.
