2708. Caleb Carpenter

Number 1700 in the Carpenter Memorial.  No family listed.

Wayne Carpenter of Findlay, OH provided the update to this family line in a
letter dated 27 May 1998.  Caleb was a farmer and a carpenter.

The following is a letter written June 30 1841 from Caleb & Mary (Ballou)
Carpenter to their son, Marsena B. "John" Carpenter. Handwriting of the
original letter matches perfectly with that of Cyrena (Carpenter) Taylor.
"8 June the 30 1941          Dear Son
i take this opportunity to rite a few lines to you to inform you of our good
health and hoping these few lines will find you enjoying the same blessing we
received your letter of may the 20 about the midle of june we are glad to hear

pleasure of conversing with you we want you to come home and we will tell you
all that you want to hear of Louisville we have much to say to you when you
come home but we cannot express our feelings by nting when you receive this you
will see a cold - senseless thing it can only speak through your lips it cannot
breath a parents love and the ardent desire they have for your wellfare it only
ashures you that your friends live and remember you and want to see you you
cannot look at this and see the display of friendship in their countenance nor
the extended hand to welcome you to their warm embrace we should have rote
before now but we did not know where you was you rote last fall that you
thought of going away from where you was then we have not had a letter from you
since we want you should come home this fall if you ever think of coming home
why cant you as well come this fall as evan I've felt this sorrow of waiting
any longer your friends and relatives are all well at present. we have not
heard from Sopers since last winter Asahe Charles and Lucindia has been to work
in Canada about three months Charles and Lucindia is at home now and Asahe has
gone to montral now Hosea Stafford is in the michigan he does not talk of

6393. Anna Carpenter

BIRTH: Probably born in Guilford, VT or Louisville, NY.

2710. Aaron C. Carpenter

Number 1702 in the Carpenter Memorial on page 244.
Family on page 408-409 (# 559).
NAME: Listed as A.C. in the CM.  This A.C. was born about 1772.

It was assumed that Aaron C. Carpenter born 6 Mar 1770 of VT who married Sarah Ana Demeris was the same person as A.C. Carpenter (no spouse given) # 1702 in the CM was the same person.  Y-DNA testing does not prove this out.  A.C. Carpenter is of the Rehoboth, MA Carpenter line and the descendants of Aaron C. Carpenter have tested as descendants of the Providence, RI Carpenter line.

Aaron C. Carpenter died between 1830 and 1869 in either Portage or Marion county Ohio.

6396. Hiram Carpenter

Number 3635 in the Carpenter Memorial.  No family listed.
Both he and his wife died within a few days of each other in 1839.

6397. Chloe Carpenter

Number 3633 in the Carpenter Memorial.  No family listed.

2712. Edward B. Carpenter

It was probably this Edward who was fined by the supreme court of the Provincial government of Vermont for opposition to the government of that state, claiming to be subject to the state of New York.  He appealed the fine which was remitted on October 24, 1784.  He probably resided in Guilford, VT at that time, but there is no further trace of him since that time.

They lived in southern NY or Northern PA
From early times in America until now there is a break in the family line that none of the dedicated Carpenter historians can mend. The earliest traceable ancestor in our direct line is Edward Carpenter ofwhom the late "Aunt Alliell" writes the following:

Edward Carpenter's parents died when he was young. He was oblidged to live with an Uncle. This Uncle had a son of whom he was proud. He made Edward wait on him. Edward became dissatisfied with his home and stoleaway one morning with his few possessions tied in a small bundle. Settlements were far apart in the days of the early part of the 19th century. So bitter were his feelings against his uncle, he never let him know of his whereabouts. Therefore, we do not know the name of his uncle or where he lived. He met and married Anna Drake in 1802. She was the grand daughter of Princess Anneke Jans Bogardus. This is a mistake to consider her a princess. Tradition has it that Anneke Jans was the daughter of Jan Webber, who was supposedly the son of William of Orange, and an unknown mistress. This is pure fiction, there being no facts to prove the tradition.

So Edward's wife Anna was not of royalty. The land in question on what is now Manhattan Island was willed to the heirs of Anneke Jans Bogardus and they in turn legally sold it to the governor. So actually nobody was cheated out of the land. Aunt Allie continues: "Edward was a great hunter, but he hunted alone. One night one of his friends coaxed to go along for he did just hunted at night. At last he was told he might if he did just as he was told. They went a fourth of a mile into the woods and lay down by a log. Now said Edward do not make asound or a move till I give permission. Edward began to imitate the cry of a panther, after some time the cry was answered. But there was some difficulty getting it to approach, suddenly it placed its paws on the log and its burning eyes looked down on them. The friend could not keep still. He sprang up with a cry, and the panther was gone. They made their way home and never would Edward take anyone with him again on these hunts."

-4- Edward was a Colonel in the War of 1812, but we have no account of this, and the War Department and Archives cannot find his record without more information on him. Edward came to Wisconsin on foot from Pennsylvania with only his gun. We are not sure of when he came or if anyone accompanied him. We only know his wife and sons did not at that time.  Some stories say he came with his daughter and her husband, Nancy and Job Loper, this would have been sometime after 1830 "as that is whenthey were married. Since Nancy was only fifteen when she married, she seems rather young to make the trek across the United States, The gun Edward carried is in the Possession of Billy Carpenter at Eureka, the son of Max. Edward is buried near Eureka. On his gravestone it says he died in 1860 at the age of 75 years, and some months and days. This makes the date of birth being 1784.  If these years are correct he would have died before his wife and son even came to Wisconsin as they came after September of 1864.  Edward and Anna had four children:

JOE: He came to Wisconsin, it is not known when, but lived near Marionon the way to Antigo. Some information has it that he lived near Clintonville in 1388. They, must have had a large -family, as some ofwhich lived in Outagamie County about one hundred years ago.

GABRIEL DRAKE: He married Louise Heavener in 1833 and he came toWisconsin in 1864. He is of our direct line.

JOHN OR CALEB: We are not sure of His wife's name was Kate,they had a son John and did not come west.

NANCY: She married Job Loper and moved to Wisconsin from Pennsylvania.They had a large family. First, they lived in Delhi and later moved to DePere. Nancy was born in 1815, married in 1830 and died in 1373.  Her husband, Job Loper, lived from 1807-1881. ~

Anna Drake

Anna's Uncle is Sir Frances Drake

6403. Caleb C. Carpenter

Came to Wisconsin in 1853 -1858, near Marian.
Lived in Winnebago County 1860 -1866,then to Outagammi Co and Wapaca.
He moved around a lot. Census showed him near Eureka in 1860 with his mother, Anna (Edward had died), wife Harriet, and three children. Further records showed him in 1870, in Outagamie County , near New  London, without his mother, but with wife and seven children.  From there we loose track of him. Family oral history has him near Clinonville in 1880. He diedbet 1895 - 1900 in Birnonwood (? sp.) Wisc.
