****Birth: Aug. 22, 1850 Morgantown Butler County Kentucky, USA
Death: Sep. 27, 1931 Karnak Pulaski County Illinois, USA
John Wesley Deweese, the son of Pierson Miller Deweese and Celia Jane Smith, was born on August 22, 1850 in Morgantown, Butler County, Kentucky. John was married twice. His first wife was Caroline Flener, the daughter of Adam Flener and Sarah (Heavern) Billings. They were married on November 1, 1871 in Butler County, Kentucky. John's second wife was Sarah E. (Hood) Bales, the daughter of Albert Hood and Mary E. Kirk. John and Sarah were married on November 11, 1930. John Wesley Deweese died on September 27, 1931 in Karnak, Pulaski County, Illinois. He was buried with his wife Caroline Flener Deweese, who preceded him in death on January 3, 1930. They are buried in the Olive Branch Cemetery in Olive Branch, Alexander County, Illinois. The following obituary is from Chapter IX. "Memoirs" of an unknown book: JOHN WESLEY DEWEESE - As the sun rises in the morning to drive away the clouds and brighten the day with its beautiful rays, so Brother J. W. Deweese rose above the sorrow and suffering of this life to brighten heaven with a well spent life here on earth for his Master. He was born in Morgantown, Kentucky, on August 22, 1850, and died at his home in Karnak, Illinois, September 27, 1931, at the age of 81 years, 1 month and 5 days. - In his young manhood days he felt the need of a Saviour to guide him over the difficult places of life and at the age of 27 years he gave his heart to God. It was soon after his conversion that he felt the call of God to go preach the gosple to a lost and dying world. He began his ministry in Deer Lick, Kentucky in 1892, and from there he went to Hickory Grove, Kentucky. In 1895 he was transferred to the Southern Illinois Conference, and served his Master faithfully in this section of the country until 1916 when he retired from active ministry. He served the following charges in the Southern Illinois Conference: Eddyville, Dahlgren, Mill Shoals, Maunie, Donnelson, Olive Branch, Makanda, Ransey, Clay City, West Frankford, Elkville, Galatia. He was in active service for his Lord for forty years. - On November 1, 1871, Brother Deweese was married to Caroline Flener, and to this union twelve children were born, six sons and six daughters. Five daughtes and one sone preceded him to the great beyond. His companion departed this life some two years ago. He was again united in marriage to Mrs. Sarah E. Bolen of Karnak, Illinois, November 11, 1930. White they were permitted to live together only a few short months, every step of the way was strewn with sunshine and gladness. Great sorrow was brought about through their seperation by death. The most of their conversation during this short space of time was upon the church and the church work. - There remain to mourn his departure a loving companion, Mrs. Sarah E. Deweese of Karnak, Illinois; one daughter, Mrs. Martha Simpson of Diswood, Illinois; five sons, James M. of Evansville, Indiana, Robert M. of Miller City, Illinois; Ray E. of Kankakee, Illinois, Charles E. of Cleveland, Ohio and D. Morgan of Little Rock, Arkansas. There are also sixteen grand children, thirty-one great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. Not only these, but a host of other relatives and friends mourn his departure. The stars shall shine for a thousand years, A thousnad years and a day; But God and I will live and love When the stars are passed away. The funeral service was held in the Olive Branch Methodist Episcopal Church under the direction of his paster Elmer Smith of Karnak, Illinois, assisted by O. B. Allen of Cairo, Illinois, and J. Rue Reid of Thebes, Illinois. The sermon was preached by C. C. Hall, pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal Church in Lawrencevlle, Illinois. The body was interred in the Olive Branch cemetery, near Olive Branch, Illinois. Family links: Spouse: Caroline Flener Deweese (1856 - 1930)

****Chapter Six: Historical Accuracy vs Good Taste: Valley Forge in the 1920s and 1930s
In the 1920 edition of his visitors' guidebook, Dr. Burk described a dam near Washington's Headquarters where visitors could rent small boats and row all the way to a scenic bridge some distance to the south. The waters of this dam reportedly covered an older dam, which had been rebuilt, as Burk put it, "in a most substantial manner." [ In 1896, a newspaper description of the same dam mentioned a white pole and a stone planted on opposite shores of its reservoir marking, "the site of the dam of Revolutionary times, whose exact location was disclosed when a break occurred in the present dam a few years ago." Elsewhere below the water, it was believed, were the ruins of the forge that had given the valley its name. There would be no more boating on Valley Creek after 1920, when the park commission decided to "restore" Valley Creek and the area around Washington's Headquarters. Silt had raised the valley floor considerably. The commission razed the mill where Ebenezer Lund had conducted his business, removed the tracks and piers from the unfinished trolley, and then demolished the dam. By November 1920, the park commission's Land Committee reported: "The removal of these obstructions has resurrected the beautiful background of hills along the gorge, and reproduced the wild and picturesque landscape which helped to inspire the courage of the revolutionary soldiers to endure the hardships of that almost hopeless winter." ] A number of area residents held a somewhat different opinion and protested the destruction of the dam throughout 1920. Where there had once been a scenic lake much appreciated by the locals for its beauty and the pleasure it afforded, weeds were springing up in an unsightly lake bed. Some even claimed that the park commission had destroyed a relic of Washington's day because, it was believed, the dam's waters once powered a gristmill that ground grain for the Continental army. Charles E. Hires, who owned property in the area, wrote the governor and demanded that the dam be rebuilt [ ^873, Em- ma Ellis. 189. Albert, b. 7, 12, 1846. 190.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES, GARRETT DEWEES. General List, No. i. Of Garrett Dewees, son of William the paper ma- ker, very little is known except that he was a miller by trade or occupation, and was, in conjunction with his brother Cornelius, an extensive land owner in the State of New Jersey, in Gloucester county. He mar- ried Agnes Streeper, daughter of John Streeper, of Ger- mantown. In Deed Book, H. I., page 94, Philadelphia, Pa., Recorder of Deeds Ofl&ce, is an Indenture bearing date the 27th day of June, 1748, between Garrett Dewees of the township of Germantown, County of Philadel- phia, Pa., miller, and Agnes his wife, daughter of John Streeper, late of the township of Germantown, afore- said, of the one part, and William Streeper of said township of the other part, dividing a certain tract of land for the consideration of twenty shillings. CHRISTINA ELIZABETH DEWEES. General List, No. 2. Christina Elizabeth Dewees, daughter of William Dewees, paper maker, was married February 2d, 1726, to Henry Antes. In the "Perkiomen Region," Vol. I, 84 The Dewees Family. No. 4, December 1894, published by Henry S. Dotterer, is the following : Extract from the Church Record of three High Dutch Reformed Churches of Falkner Swamp, Skippack and Whitemarsh, in Pennsylvania, given this 20th of January, 1736, by me John Philip Boehm. Anno 1726, February 2d, Henry Antes and Chris- tina Elizabeth, bom Dewees, after three required no- tices given, were married at Whitemarsh, and have up to this date had, and under the blessing of God offered for holy baptism, the following children: 20th November, 1726, Anna Catherina, bom 8th No- vember, 1726. 6th October, 1728, Anna Margaretta, bom 9th of Sep- tember, 1728. 5th July, 1730, Philip Frederick, born 2d July, 1730. 2 1 St November, 1731, William, bom i8th September, 1 73 1.

The earliest record fonnd concerning the Antes family in this country is a deed dated 20th of February, 1723, for 150 acres of land in Philadelphia county, purchased by Frederick Antes, of Germantown, from Henry Van Bebber, de- scribed as part of a tract of 25,370 acres in Mahani- tania, in the present township of Hanover. Frederick Antes died in the latter part of the year 1746, leaving a wife and two children, the son Henry, and daughter Anne Elizabeth, who was the wife of John Eschbach. It is believed that Henry Antes was bom in Frien- sheim, Bavaria. On the 2d of February, 1726, after three regular notices given, Henry Antes and Christina Elizabeth, daughter of William Dewees, were married at Whitemarsh, by John Philip Boehm, pastor of the German Reformed Church, in Pennsylvania. The precise date at which Antes took up his resi- dence in Frederick township is not known. On the 2d of February, 1 730, he is described as a resident of Hanover township, the name at that time sometimes ap- plied to the territory afterwards erected into Frederick township, as well as the Frankford company tract. Previous to this he, with his father-in-law, William Dewees, had built a grist mill and a paper mill at Cre- feld, Germantown. In 1730 he was naturalized. On the 2d day of September, 1735, Henry Antes, of Fred- erick township, millwright, bought of John Hagerman, of Lancaster County, weaver, one hundred and seventy- five acres of land "near the branches of the Perkeaw- ming," in Frederick township, paying therefor two hundred pounds, lawful money of the province ; bounded 86 The Dewees Family. by lands of William Frey and Henry Stadler, land of Andrew Frey and vacant lands. Upon this tract Mr. Antes resided during the remainder of his life, except when temporarily away. Upon this property, the same year, he built, in partnership with George Heebner, a grist-mill. In the spring of 1763, he became acquainted with Spangenberg, of the Moravian Church in America, who was sojourning with the Schwenkfelders in Skippack. Up to 1740 he continued a member of the Falkner Swamp Church, in charge of Rev. Mr. Boehm. At this time a difference arose between pastor and parish- ioners resulting in alienation. In 1741, Antes became acquainted with Zinzendorf. In 1742, Antes assisted the Moravians in building the first large house in Beth- lehem. The colony of Moravian immigrants who ar- rived in the Catharine, came to the house of Antes, July 19th, 1742, and lodged there that night. In 1744, Henry Antes presided at a S3mod of Moravian Breth- ren held in what is now North Heidelberg township. In 1750, the Moravians introduced the wearing of the white surplice by the members at the celebration of the Eucharist. Antes disapproved of this and withdrew from their communion. He died in July, 1754. WILLIAM DEWEES. General List No. 4. Comparatively little is known in regard to the his- tory and public life of William Dewees, the son of Wil- liam, the paper maker. He was bom in Germantown, Pa., about 1712 or 171 4, and married Rachel Farmer, said by many historians to be the daughter of Edward Farmer, of Whitemarsh. But from the accounts that The Dewees Family. 87 are obtained from descendants of the Farmer family, it is likely that this Rachel Farmer was the daughter of Thomas Farmer, and sister of Jasper Farmer, who married Anne Billops, October 17th, 1731. Further evi- dence however would be necessary to establish the fact beyond dispute. William Dewees was commissioned Sheriff of Philadelphia, October 4th, 1773. He was also a Justice of the Peace, and dealt largely in real estate. He died in 1777, and his place of burial is not definitely known. CORNEUUS DEWEES. General List No. 6. Cornelius Dewees married Maria Phillipina Boehm. His occupation was that of a cooper, and his residence Gloucester county, New Jersey. There are many frag- mentary records of Deweeses in and about Philadelphia, but they cannot be connected with any particular family. They may be the descendants of Cornelius. HENRY DEWEES. General List, No. 5. Henry Dewees, son of William, the paper maker, and brother of Sheriff William Dewees, was bom in 1 716. He was a paper maker by trade and owiied and operated the mill formerly owned by his father. Dur- ing the Revolution he manufactured cartridge paper for the army. He was also the possessor of considerable pro- perty, and bought and sold land to a g^eat extent. He married, in 1743, Rachel . He died in 1801, leaving six sons and two daughters. He and his wife were buried in the Upper Germantown burial ground by the side of his father and mother, William and 88 714^ Dewees Family, Christina Dewees. PHIUP DEWEES. General List, No. 8. Philip Dewees, youngest son of William Dewees, paper maker, was not of age when his father died. Whom he married is not known. About 1763 he took out a warrant for a tract of land in Mount Bethel town- ship, Northampton county, Pa. Soon after he removed to Charleston, S. C, where some of his descendants now live. Others are scattered throughout the Southern States, but no definite record can be obtained. One of his sons, Cornelius, married, June 29th, 1770, Sarah Minors, at Charleston, S. C. He became the owner of an island off the coast of South Carolina which bore the name of Dewees island. He furnished the Palmetto logs for the construction of Fort Moultrie, in Charles- ton Harbor during the Revolution. Another son, Andrew, married in 1778, at Charleston, S. C, Catharine Chicken. He afterward took the oath of allegiance to the Spanish Government, and obtained land in Florida under grant from the Spanish Crown, the record of which has been found. William Dewees, another son, married, January I St, 1778, Frances Lovejoy, of Charleston, and second, October 25th, 1781, Jane Rogers, of the same place. He claimed the protection of the British during the Revolution. John Dewees married Sarah Vincent, in 1790. Pennsylvania Records show that Philip Dewees had in 1769 been gone some years to Carolina, and the tract of land in Mount Bethel for which he had ob- tained a warrant, but never paid any money, was re- assigned to Abraham Lewar and a patent granted to The Dewees Family. 89 him. Some litigation followed on the part of those who claimed to have bought from Philip Dewees, but the re- sult is not on record. WILLIAM DEWEES, JR. General List, No. 20. William Dewees, Jr., was the son of William and Rachel Farmer Dewees. He was bom at Germantown, and at the breaking out of the Revolutionary War, owned a large flour mill at Valley Forge. His father. Sheriff William Dewees, resided in the vicinity of Germantown, where he. built a large stone mansion which is still standing, and on the gable end can be seen the initials, w.^r. • William Dewees, Jr., married first, Sarah, daughter of Thomas and Rebecca (Rut- ter) Potts. They had two children, Rachel, who mar- ried Benjamin Bartholomew, and Hannah, who married Rev. John Boggs. His first wife dying, he married, November 15, 1769, Sarah Waters, by whom he had several children. In 1773, Joseph Potts, of Philadel- phia, conveyed ,o Col. William Dewees an undivided moiety of Mt. Joy Furnace, and as early as 1771 he ap- pears to have resided at the mansion house belonging to these iron works, and to have carried them on in con- junction with David Potts, who for nearly half a cen- tury had sold in Philadelphia the bar iron made there. The forge was burned by the British in September, 1777. Col. Dewees is said to have built the large ovens in the cellar of the house of his cousin, David Potts, who had probably removed from his summer house to the city for security. The mansion belonging to the forge was not burned, but the British destroyed all they could. Many years after the war the family of Col. Dewees, • 90 The Dewees Family. through his son William, a lawyer in Washington, D, C, presented a claim in Congress for indemnity. Col. Dewees died in 1782, leaving a widow and several chil- dren. At the close of the Revolution, Capt. Benjamin Bartholomew married Rachel, daughter of Col. William Dewees, and settled on an extensive farm in East White- land, Chester county. Pa. Capt. Bartholomew died March 31st, 181 2, and was buried at Tredyflrin Baptist Church. The following are extracts from the proceedings of the Council of Safety in the Pa. Archives relating to Col. Dewees : April 23d, 1777. Col. William Dewees requests that he may have a Serjeant's Guard of Militia, Stationed at Valley Forge, he hopes that Continental Troops will not be employed there. If the guard is appointed he desired to know how they are to be victualed. Arms and Amunition will be wanted and may be had of Mr. DeHaven. Kingsess, Dec. ye nth, 1776. I have two men last week two days and this week two days more. Those men tell me the Captains com- complain of Great Backwardness in the people, and also say that Col. Dewees hath ordered a company to Gard the Powder. Lieutenant Col. Dewees liveth near twenty from me and I have not seen him since we came from camp. Jonathan Pascall, Col.

I last thursday rec'd orders to relieve Captain Wilberts Company at this Post, by an equal number of Respectable Militia. On f riday morning I went to Captain Wilbert and showed him my orders & told him I expected to relieve him Sunday or Monday, as I expected the men would have turned out much readier than they did. I went to two of our Captains and several of the men who promised they would march on thursday morning early I went to meet them but they did not come until af temoon,when I rec'd information from Captain Hartman, Verbally, that he was to occupy that Post & that I was to the Camp Immediately. I proposed marching to Philadelphia on Wednesday morning, but the men and officers utterly refused going, as they said they were 111 used and behaved in such a manner as convinced me there could be no good done with them some of whom I had advanced money to out of my own pocket who neither would nor Did return it. In the afternoon of yesterday I rec'd advice from Capt. Wilbert that Hartman's orders were not sufficient for him to leave the Post, and as I had been required to relieve him by Reputable Associators, and I thought it might be of use to relieve them as soon as possible, ap- plied to Col. Thomas. He readily consented for one company of his Batt'n, who all offered voluntarily to put themselves under my command. As I found there could be nothing done with our own Batt'n, I thought it my duty to Except of them and accordingly marched to this Post this day, but met with Capt. Hartman here, who has riot more than four or five men with him, but who insists upon taking Possession of the Post. Capt. Wilbert and his Lieut, is in Philadelphia and the Com- manding officer who is a Serjeant Informs me he has the 92 The Dewees Family. Captain's orders, Not to go from here until he returns.

To Col John Bull, or the Hon'ble Council of Safety, Philadelphia. Deposition of Col. William Dewees, 1777. Col. William Dewees being duly sworn on the Holy Evangels of Almighty God, did depose and say that on Saturday the first day of March last he was at the Powder Mills at French Creek with Col Peter Grubb, who was greatly in liquor and behaved very madly, that among other things he said, that himself and four others could in spite of all the Guards, blow the Powder Mill to Hell, and other words of like import. That he (Col Dewees) then asked him why he did not do it, to which Col Grubb replied, that he did not want to do it, or to injure the Mill, or words to this effect, that the next day when Col Grubb was sober he did not inti- mate any such sentiment as he had expressed the day before, but on the contrary when Col Dewees talked of raising a Company of Volunteers in case of the Militia being again called upon. Col Grubb said he would join 86 The Dewees Family. by lands of William Frey and Henry Stadler, land of Andrew Frey and vacant lands. Upon this tract Mr, Antes resided during the remainder of his life, except when temporarily away. Upon this property, the same year, he built, in partnership with George Heebner, a grist-mill. In the spring of 1763, he became acquainted with Spangenberg, of the Moravian Church in America, who was sojourning with the Schwenkfelders in Skippack. Up to 1740 he continued a member of the Falkner Swamp Church, in charge of Rev. Mr. Boehm. At this time a difference arose between pastor and parish- ioners resulting in alienation. In 1741, Antes became acquainted with Zinzendorf. In 1742, Antes assisted the Moravians in building the first large house in Beth- lehem. The colony of Moravian immigrants who ar- rived in the Catharine, came to the house of Antes, July 19th, 1742, and lodged there that night. In 1744, Henry Antes presided at a Synod of Moravian Breth- ren held in what is now North Heidelberg township. In 1750, the Moravians introduced the wearing of the white surplice by the members at the celebration of the Eucharist. Antes disapproved of this and withdrew from their communion. He died in July, 1754. WILLIAM DEWEES. General List No. 4. Comparatively little is known in regard to the his- tory and public life of William Dewees, the son of Wil- liam, the paper maker. He was bom in Germantown, Pa., about 1712 or 171 4, and married Rachel Farmer, said by many historians to be the daughter of Edward Farmer, of Whitemarsh. But from the accounts that The Dewees Family. 87 are obtained from descendants of the Fanner family, it is likely that this Rachel Farmer was the daughter of Thomas Farmer, and sister of Jasper Farmer, who married Anne Billops, October 17th, 1731. Further evi- dence however Would be necessary to establish the fact beyond dispute. William Dewees was commissioned Sheriff of Philadelphia, October 4th, 1773. He was also a Justice of the Peace, and dealt largely in real estate. He died in 1777, and his place of burial is not definitely known. CORNEUUS DEWEES. General List No. 6. Cornelius Dewees married Maria Phillipina Boehm. His occupation was that of a cooper, and his residence Gloucester county. New Jersey. There are many frag- mentary records of Deweeses in and about Philadelphia, but they cannot be connected with any particular family. They may be the descendants of Cornelius. HENRY DEWEES. General List, No. 5. Henry Dewees, son of William, the paper maker, and brother of Sheriff William Dewees, was bom in 1 716. He was a paper maker by trade and owned and operated the mill formerly owned by his father. Dur- ing the Revolution he manufactured cartridge paper for the army. He was also the possessor of considerable pro- perty, and bought and sold land to a great extent. He married, in 1743, Rachel . He died in 1801, leaving six sons and two daughters. He and his wife were buried in the Upper Germantown burial ground by the side of his father and mother, William and 88 The Dewees Family, Christina Dewees. PHILIP DEWEES. General List, No. 8. Philip Dewees, youngest son of William Dewees, paper maker, was not of age when his father died. Whom he married is not known. About 1763 he took out a warrant for a tract of land in Mount Bethel town- ship, Northampton county, Pa. Soon after he removed to Charleston, S. C, where some of his descendants now live. Others are scattered throughout the Southern States, but no definite record can be obtained. One of his sons, Cornelius, married, June 29th, 1770, Sarah Minors, at Charleston, S. C. He became the owner of an island off the coast of South Carolina which bore the name of Dewees island. He furnished the Palmetto logs for the construction of Fort Moultrie, in Charles- ton Harbor during the Revolution. Another son, Andrew, married in 1778, at Charleston, S. C, Catharine Chicken. He afterward took the oath of allegiance to the Spanish Government, and obtained land in Florida under grant from the Spanish Crown, the record of which has been found. William Dewees, another son, married, January ist, 1778, Frances Lovejoy, of Charleston, and second, October 25th, 1781, Jane Rogers, of the same place. He claimed the protection of the British during the Revolution. John Dewees married Sarah Vincent, in 1790. Pennsylvania Records show that Philip Dewees had in 1769 been gone some years to Carolina, and the tract of land in Mount Bethel for which he had ob- tained a warrant, but never paid any money, was re- assigned to Abraham Lewar and a patent granted to The Dewees Family. 89 him. Some litigation followed on the part of those who claimed to have bought from Philip Dewees, but the re- sult is not on record. WILLIAM DEWEES, JR. General List, No. 20.
