Clement RACKLIFF

Clement RACKLIFF is my third cousin five times removed; we are related through Dominicus “Indian Killer” and Hannah “Ruhanah” (TRISTRAM) JORDAN.  Clement and his family were members of the Religious Society of Friends also known as Quakers.[1]  Clement was instrumental in the purchase and building of the Unity, Maine meeting house with help of Benjamin R. STEVENS.[2] Clement’s residence was referred to as “Quaker Hotel”, according to his grandson James Rackliff TABER.[3]  He and his wife Hephzibah would make a yearly trip by horseback to Providence, Rhode Island (approximately 255 miles) for the annual meeting of the Friends.[4]  He was enumerated in 1850 living with daughter Hannah and her husband in Unity, Waldo, Maine.[5]  He and his family were among the first settlers in what is now known as Unity, Waldo, Maine.

Clement RACKLIFF was born 8 April 1774 in Scarborough, Cumberland, Maine.[6]  He was the son of Benjamin and Sarah (JORDAN) RACKLIFF.  He died 16 March 1858 in Unity, Waldo, Maine.  His body is interred at Quaker Hill Cemetery.[7]  Clement married twice; first he married Hephzibah CHASE 4 March 1803 in Waldo county, Maine.[8]  Hephzibah was born 12 June 1781 in Durham, Androscoggin, Maine.[9]  She was the daughter of Stephen and Hannah (BLETHEN) CHASE.  She died November 1838 in Unity, Waldo, Maine.  Her body is interred at Quaker Hill Cemetery in Unity, Waldo, Maine.[10]  Clement married second to Margaret BUFFUM 19 May 1841 in Scarborough, Cumberland, Maine.[11]  She was born 1778 in Scarborough.  She was the daughter of John and Hannah BUFFUM.  She died 15 May 1848.  Her body is interred at Quaker Hill Cemetery in Unity, Waldo, Maine.[12]  Clement was her third husband; she was married first to Remington HOBBY (1774-1805) and second to Tobias VARNEY (1777- ).[13]

  3. Sarah Pope RACKLIFF was born 8 January 1808 in Unity, Waldo, Maine.[21] She married Jacob TABER 27 February 1839 in Unity, Waldo, Maine.[22]  Jacob was born 6 October 1807 in Vassalboro, Kennebec, Maine.[23]  He was the son of Barnabas and Lydia (HUSSEY) TABER.  He died 30 June 1879 in Stoughton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.  He was interred at Maplewood Cemetery in Stoughton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[24]  He is the brother to William TABER husband of Sarah’s sister Hannah.  Jacob married twice after Sarah’s death; Eliza FLETCHER (1827-1906) and to Mary STARKEY.
  4. Hannah RACKLIFF born 5 May 1810 in Unity, Waldo, Maine.[25] She died 9 March 1889 in Unity, Waldo, Maine.[26]  She was interred at Quaker Hill Cemetery in Unity, Waldo, Maine.[27]  Hannah married William TABER 22 March 1837 in Unity, Waldo, Maine.[28]  William was born 19 February 1805 in Vassalboro, Kennebec, Maine.[29]  He was the son of Barnabas and Lydia (HUSSEY) TABER.  He died 25 May 1876 in Unity, Waldo, Maine.[30]  His body was interred at Quaker Hill Cemetery in Unity, Waldo, Maine.[31]  He was the brother of Jacob TABER married to Hannah’s sister Sarah.  He married first to Mary Chase BUFFUM (1806-1834).[32]

  6. James Halleck RACKLIFF born 26 February 1815 in Unity, Waldo, Maine.[37] There is no mention of him after his birth, so it’s possible that he died young.

Joseph C. CALEF

Joseph C. CALEF is my first cousin seven times; we are related through Dominicus and Hannah (TRISTRAM) JORDAN.  He resided Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts and Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[1]  He appears in many court records as few are: 1757 plaintiff in trespass case with James JORDAN; 1758 plaintiff in trespass case with Thomas WORMWOOD; 1758 plaintiff in trespass case with Zebadiah BANKS; 1759 defendant in ejectment case with Gilliam PHILLIPS; and many others occurring in courts outside of Suffolk County.[2]  As a gift he and Mehitable received 40 ½ acres of land from her father in 1758.[3]  He was recorded in the diary of Reverend Thomas M.  SMITH that he visited with Dr. COOPER, Mr. BOWERS, Dr. WINTHROP, John HANCOCK, Mr. BRATTLE, Mr. HUBBARD and Joseph CALEF.[4]  Assuming these are the people we read of from history books, I believe the John HANCOCK was the one who was active in the signing of the Constitution.  And assuming that is correct I believe that Joseph CALEF was at least partially involved in the events of the day.  Joseph’s will and probate were dated 1776, there is an attached copy of his will and probate letter.[5]  Due to the writing I was only partially able to transcribe the will, which is also attached below.  It was said he was an unsuccessful merchant in his day, but due to his real estate holdings his Ebenezer was able to amass a small fortune for Joseph’s heirs.[6]  Most of his sons were active in the Revolutionary War serving in various capacities from guarding coasts to being stationed on ships in the harbors surrounding Boston.[7]

Joseph C. CALEF was born 4 November 1724 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts[8].  He was christened 8 November 1724 at New South Church in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[9]  He is the son of Joseph C. and Hannah (JORDAN) CALEF.  He died 31 May 1776 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[10]  His body is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts[11].  Joseph married Mehitable C. MILLER 12 September 1758 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts[12].  Mehitable C. MILLER was born 27 April 1735 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts, christened 4 May 1735 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[13]  She is the daughter of Colonel Samuel and Rebecca (MINOT) MILLER.  She died 13 April 1790 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[14]  She is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[15]

Joseph and Mehitable had the following children:

  • Samuel CALEF born 12 December 1758 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[16] He died 22 October 1836 in either Kingston, Rockingham, New Hampshire or Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine.[17]  He was unmarried at his death.
  • Joseph CALEF born 12 December 1758 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[18]
  • Ebenezer Winter CALEF born 17 August 1760 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[19] He died 9 February 1829 in Walpole, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[20]  Ebenezer married Sarah Gardner GIBSON 1 or 21 February 1800 at Hollis Street Church by Reverend Samuel WEST in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[21]
  • Hannah CALEF born 1 March 1763 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts[22]. She died 22 February 1855 in Brooklyn, Kings, New York.  Hannah married Major Samuel Niles THAYER 23 July 1793 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[23]
  • Mehitable Miller CALEF born 1 September 1765 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts[24]. She died of consumption 26 October 1844 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[25]  She married Colonel Thomas Balch LEGATE 19 February 1803, there were no children.
  • Stephen Miller CALEF born 9 September 1767 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[26] He married Rebecca EMMERSON 7 December 1807 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine.[27]
  • Robert Jordan CALEF born 9 May 1770 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[28] He died 22 March 1776 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts[29].  He is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[30]
  • Rebecca Thayer CALEF was born 17 September 1772 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts[31]. She died of dropsy 4 October 1858 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[32]  She married Joseph Neals HOWE 28 July 1825 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, there were no children.[33]
  • John CALEF born 27 May 1776 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts[34]. He died 30 August 1777 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[35]  He is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[36]

Elizabeth MITCHELL

 

Elizabeth is my third cousin five times removed; we are related through Dominicus and Hannah (TRISTRAM) JORDAN.  I found it interesting that no family tree found on Ancestry.com, FamilySearch.org or even in The Jordan Family listed all of the children; each only listed two to three children for the family.  It took some interesting search methods to finally piece the family together.  Although not all children have full information, there is enough on each family member to get a good sense of who the family was.

Elizabeth “Betsey” MITCHELL was born 8 November 1775 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine.[1]  She is the daughter of Jonathan and Anna (LOVETT) MITCHELL.  She died 17 June 1856 in Danville, Androscoggin, Maine.[2]  She is interred at McKenney-Murray Cemetery in Auburn, Androscoggin, Maine.[3]  Elizabeth married twice; first she married Luke LIBBY 21 September 1795 in Danville, Androscoggin, Maine, mistakenly listed as 20 August 1796 in The Family Jordan.[4]  Luke was born 1767 in Scarborough, Cumberland, Maine.[5]  He was the son of Luke and Dorothy (MCKENNEY) LIBBY.    He died 13 October 1800 in Danville, Androscoggin, Maine.[6]  He is interred at McKenney-Murray Cemetery in Auburn, Androscoggin, Maine.[7]  Elizabeth married second to Thomas MURRAY 20 December 1801 in New Gloucester, Cumberland, Maine; with intentions filed 27 November 1801 in New Gloucester, Cumberland, Maine; the marriage date was mistakenly given as 17 June 1801 in The Family Jordan.[8]  Thomas was born 29 March 1778 in Gorham, Cumberland, Maine. [9]  He was the son of Anthony and Abiel (HOLBROOK) MURRAY.  He died 12 March 1843 in Danville, Androscoggin, Maine.[10]  He is interred at McKenney-Murray Cemetery in Auburn, Androscoggin, Maine.[11]

Joseph C. CALEF

Joseph is my first cousin seven times removed through Dominicus and Hannah (TRISTRAM) JORDAN.

Joseph C. CALEF was born 4 November 1724 and/or baptized 8 November 1724 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[1]   His parents were Joseph C. and Hannah (JORDAN) CALEF.  He died 31 May 1776 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[2]  He is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[3]  Joseph married Mehitable C. MILLER 12 September 1758 in Boston, Suffolk, Maine also listed as intention 21 September 1758 in Boston, Suffolk, Maine, which I believe was a typographical error.[4]  Mehitable was born 27 April 1735 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts other dates listed for her are 3 and 4 May 1735, I believe one of the May dates may be her baptism date.[5]  She was the daughter of Col. Samuel and Rebecca (MINOT) MILLER.  She died 13 April 1790 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts there is also recorded date 30 September 1790 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[6]  She is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[7]

Joseph and Mehitable had the following children;

  1. Joseph CALEF born 12 December 1758 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[8]  He died 29 March 1797 in Scarborough, Cumberland, Maine.[9]  He was a yeoman.[10]  He served in the Revolutionary War for twelve days guarding the shores of Maine in Capt. Jonah Voses’s Co. 1776.[11]  Joseph married Abigail MARR 29 March 1797 in Scarborough, Cumberland, Maine.[12]  Abigail is my second cousin seven times removed; we are related through Roger and Mary (CROSS) HILL.  Joseph and Abigail are not related by blood.
  2. Samuel CALEF born 12 December 1758 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[13] He died unmarried in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine.[14]  He served in the Revolutionary War for twelve days guarding the shores of Maine in Capt. Jonah Voses’s Co. 1776.[15]
  3. Ebenezer Winter CALEF born 17 August 1760 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[16] He died 9 February 1829.[17]  He was a merchant in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[18]  Ebenezer married Sarah GIBSON 1 February 1800 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[19]
  4. Hannah CALEF born 1 March 1763 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[20] She died 1855 in Brooklyn, Kings, New York.  She is interred in Braintree, Norfolk, Massachusetts.  Hannah married Samuel Miller THAYER 24 July 1793 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[21]
  5. Mehitable Miller CALEF was born 1 September 1765 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[22] According to her death record she was born 30 September 1765 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[23]  She died in 26 October 1844 or November 1844 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[24]  Mehitable married Col. Thomas LEGETT.[25]  They had no children.
  6. Stephen Miller CALEF was born 9 September 1767 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[26] He died after 1820.[27]  Stephen married Rebecca 7 December 1807 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine by George E. Vaughan, justice of the peace; intentions filed 26 November 1807 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine.[28]
  7. Robert Jordan CALEF was born 9 May 1770 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[29] He died 22 March 1776 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[30]  He is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[31]
  8. Rebecca Thayer CALEF was born 17 September 1772 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts; although there are three dates listed as her birth date, 17 September 1772, 27 May 1772 and 17 September 1762, I believe that the 17 September 1772 date is the correct date since her birth records are showing that date the other dates are from other records recorded at a later time.[32] She died of dropsy 4 October 1858 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[33]  She is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[34]  Rebecca married Joseph Neals HOWE, they had no children.[35]
  9. John CALF was born 27 May 1776 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts; as with other children in the family there are numerous birth dates listed for him; 1767, 9 May 1776 and 27 May 1776, I believe the 27 May date to be correct since that is the date of both birth records on file.[36] He died 30 March 1777 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[37]  He is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[38]

Solomon B. MESERVE

Solomon is my third cousin five times removed; we are related through Dominicus and Hannah (TRISTRAM) JORDAN.  He is the son of Solomon and Arabella J. (JORDAN) MESERVE.  Solomon and Parmelia were first cousins once removed through Daniel and Mehitable (BRAGDON) MESERVE.  Solomon and his family were enumerated in the 1840, 1850 and 1870 censuses taken in Machias, Washington, Maine.[1]  He was listed as a farmer in both the 1850 and 1870 censuses.  This family was hard to find anything of the children.  I found that son George served in the Civil War and that son Solomon Lewis married, but that is all I could find other than burial information on most of the children.[2]

Solomon B. MESERVE was born 30 April 1798 in Machias, Washington, Maine.  He died 23 May 1875 in Machias, Washington, Maine.[3]  He was interred at Meserve Cemetery in Machias, Washington, Maine.[4]

Solomon married Parmelia MESERVE 27 November 1823 in Machias, Washington, Maine[5].  Parmelia was born 20 December 1802 in Machias, Washington, Maine.[6]  She was the daughter of Joseph Libbee and Elizabeth B. (BURNHAM) MESERVE.  She died April 1888 in Machias, Washington, Maine.  She was interred at Meserve Cemetery in Machias, Washington, Maine.[7]

Solomon and Parmelia had the following children:

  1. Elizabeth F. MESERVE was born 1827.  She died unmarried in 1851.  She was interred at Meserve Cemetery in Machias, Washington, Maine.[8]
  2. Sarah A. MESERVE was born 1832.
  3. Leonard MESERVE was born 1836. He died 19 December 1866 in Steilacoom, Washington.
  4. George F. MESERVE was born 1838. He died 1873 in Machias, Washington, Maine.  He is interred at Meserve Cemetery in Machias, Washington, Maine.[9]
  5. Solomon Lewis MESERVE was born 1845 in Maine. He married Lizzie E.
  6. Leonora B. MESERVE was born 1849. She died 1851.  She is interred at Meserve Cemetery in Machias, Washington, Maine.[10]
