Charles Clark
I have the obit for Chick Clark and several other articles about him. He was cremated. Another member of the society knows a niece of Sally Clark and has e-mailed her about "final resting place" but so far no answer.
I can scan the articles about Chick and send them or if you give me a mailing address, I can send them. Contact me at my own e-mail address -

RE: Clark
I looked at Howe Mortuary and did not find Chick Clark. I will do some checking the first of the week and see what I can find. I have the complete Mt. View Cemetery records through 2014 and they are not listed.

Sally Clark
Hi Ken,
If you "google" Howe Mortuary Longmont, CO it should bring up their home page - click on obituaries - then click on past obits - click first letter of surname you should be able to find her obit. I did not look for his yet but would imagine it would be the same mortuary. I did a cut & past so you may not be able to read it, but here is it -

RE: Mary Elizabeth (Crumpton) Barham
I guess back in the mid 1800's folks were not nearly as concerned about their age as we are now! I have relatives like that in my tree where there is a 7-8 year swing in the birth year. What's even more confounding is when the death year on the tombstone doesn't match death certificates.
I wasn't able to tell what the month part of the stone read. It is either a 1 or a 4 and I was leaning more towards the 1. Would you like a transfer so you can add info?

Hi Ken,
Remember all the fun we had with Tim Hess. He is not very active but will make an edit correction once in a while.
Thanks again for the headstone photo you took for me for my cousin's son.
I am still doing what I can for our local society. Don't do the photos any more - I leave them to the men who can get around in the cemetery better than me - I fall too easy.

This is my g-g-grandfather. How were you able to determine his burial location? I have never been able to locate any burial record.

Reliance Dennis
Dear Ken,

You said;

Reliance Denes Paschal
A number of trees list Reliance as being buried with husband William Paschall in Bute NC. Do you have any info to share that shows her death in NJ in addition to it being her burial site?

I sure would be interested to know if anyone has excavated the bottom of her memorial marker to obtain the full inscription and, hopefully, some dates.

Do you have any knowledge/record indication which of William's children were borne by which spouses?

Thanks for any help you can provide,
Clarkston MI

I forgot to say that nobody knows where William Paschal is buried much less who is buried with him. I wish researchers would just say unknown since it throws off other researchers who give up searching for the location of the graves.

Reliance died before William went to NC. Reliance inherited from her father Samuel Dennes, Jr., a very prominent man in Woodbridge, NJ. William was having some difficulties in Woodbridge and NY owing people money. Check Clarence's site for the details. William packed up his family and most likely sold the property his wife Reliance inherited and then he left NJ. He did have a servant Richard Glover that ran and we found the advertisement for William to go to NY to retrieve him. There was most likely no future for him in NJ since the land was already lotted out and NC had loads of land and he moved. There is no evidence what so ever that shows Reliance ever left NJ and to be honest her family was so prominent that I doubt if he had left that she would have went with him had she been alive.

My line is:
Rev. John Lathrop
Capt. Joseph Lathrop
Mary Lathrop m. Edward Crowell,Sr married and had all their children in Barnstable,Ma

Mary Crowell m. Samuel Dennis, Jr. her mother had married Samuel Dennis, Sr. after the death of Edward Crowell, Sr.

Mary Crowell and Samuel Dennis, Jr
Their daughter Reliance Dennis/Denes/Dennis.

Reliance's father and grandfather were prominent men in Woodbridge.

1694-5 March 5.
Power of attorney.
Samuel DENNIS of Woodbridge,having married Mary, the widow of Edward CROW, and thereby legally become the administrator of the estate of said CROW, who has died intestate, empowers his said wife to manage the estate for the benefit of her children by Crow, vizt: Mary, Yelvarton, Joseph and Edward; followed by the inventory of the part of the estate, belonging to the children, and the
receipt by Mary DENNIS for it on behalf of her children.

Samuel Dennis, Sr. born before 1650, died 1715-1717 in Woodbridge, NJ, was the son of Robert and Mary Dennis. He m. 1st, Sarah Scullard, with whom he had 7 children and 2nd, on 14 APR 1689, he married Mary Crowell, widow of Edward Crowell, by whom he had two daughters, Reliance and Elizabeth. Mary was the daughter of Rev. Joseph Lathrop, son of Rev. John Lathrop. The subject of Samuel and Mary is confused by the fact that Samuel's son, Samuel, Jr. married his stepsister Mary Crowell Jr., daughter of Mary and her first husband, Edward Crowell.
Ref. "The First Settlers of Piscataway and Woodbridge" and the NEHG Register, V.2, pp 739-745.

Trinity Church Woodbridge, NJ,

An old cup is still in possession of the parish authorities, on which is engraved: The Gift of Mary Dennis, Widow, to Trinity Church in Woodbridge, December ye 25th, 1760.”

Note: This was the Dennis family's church and their family are buried there.

Samuel Dennes, Sr. grandfather of Reliance Dennis Paschal.

Turning from the barren records of Liber B, we open the Freeholders Book and find that in a meeting of April 7, 1719, another division of the public land was under discussion. This was the fifth division, which was made April 4th, 1720 just a year after the meeting alluded to.

We are reminded in a minute of the meeting of March 25th, 1720 of the death of the venerable Samuel Dennis, who has figured conspicuously in the proceeding pages. He died, probably some time between March, 1715 and the following August. Our reasons for supposing this to be the date are that , as one of the division lot layers, his name is attached to a survey of a lot March 12th 1715, he is spoken of as deceased, his son Samuel drawing the fourth division lot in his name. As he never resumed his duties as lot layer we take it as a strong presumptive evidence that he died in 1715 and certainly his death occurred previous to May, 1717.

He was a prominent public man, and, as such it is fitting that we pause in our narrative to do him honor. He came from New England, probably with Robert and John his brothers.

By reference to the lists of township officers in Chapter XII., it will be seen that he filled many important positions. He was Deputy to the General Assembly in 1675, 1680 to 83’, 1688 and “98-99. In 1699 he was appointed by Jeremiah Basse one of the Governors Council, a post which he held with honor for several years. From 1688 to 1692 he was Town Clerk of Woodbridge. He was elected to the same position in April, 1694, but refused to serve in spite of the earnest solicitation of his friends. In the years 1683 to 1692 he was Town Clerk of Woodbridge. He was elected to the same position in April 1694, but refused to serve in spite of the earnest solicitation of his friends. In the years 1683 and 1692 we find his name in the list of Assistant Justices of the Township Court. It would appear, from te minutes of the Governor and Council (pp. 143-4), that he was President of the Court in 1686-87. While in the performance of his duties in the last mentioned office in 1686, he was arrested, at the instance of Governor, Lord Campbell, for an alleged violation of the law in holding a session of his Court in Piscataway on the third of Tuesday December. The minutes of the Governor’s Council held at Amboy on the 27th of December 1686, contain the following facts in regard to this matter. We quote:

My Lord gave this Board an Account of the Transactions of the Justices of the County of Middx in holding a court at the Town of Piscataway the 3d Tuesday in this Instant month of December, Contrary to Act of General Assembly and the Governors p’ticular proclamation. Whereupon its Agreed and ordered that a wart bee issued out ot the High Sheriffe of the County of Middx, im’ediately to bring before this Coucill on tomorrow morning the Eight of the Clocke, the boddy of Mr. Samll Dennes of Woodbridge, who was president of that court, to answer to prmisses, &c.

The next day the officer appeared before the august tribunal with the prisoner. He was examined as to his offense. He admitted that at the time specified he had held a court at Piscataway; but declared distinctly that he had not acted contrary to the law. He was given a week to find security in L 300 to appear a the next session of the Court of Common Right at Amboy in May to answer the charge; in default of which he was to be “Close Committed to the Goale of Woodbridge:. It is likely that the Governor found out his mistake and discharged the Judge. By the law of 1675 (see Learning and Spicer, p 96), the Governor was right; but by the law of 1682 (L and S, P229) which virtually annulled the former the Judge was right. The third Tuesday in December was, in 1682, set down for the holding of the County Court at Piscataway.

In the House of Deputies on the 16th of March, 1698, Mr. Dennis was elected to the Speaker’s chair, a post which he worthily and honorably filled for a year, when he was taken into the Council by the Governor.

He went down to the grave full of honors, and amid the profound regret of the people he was buried.

This is just a little of how this family was involved in the government of the community. Her brother Edward Crowell, Jr. was just as prominent.

Reliance's great grandfather Robert Dennis

The first Legislature of New Jersey met at Elizabeth on
tile 26th (of May, 1668 ; the first election for Deputies (of whom two were to be chosen from each town) being ordered,
by proclamation of the Governor, on the 7th of April 1668 previous. In this session Woodbridge was represented by Samuel Moore & Robert Dennis, two leading men in the settlement.

Paschal family
Dear Ken,

I read you note on a Paschal Find A Grave site asking about the children of the different wives of William Paschal.

Clarence McDaniel it he ultimate resource for research on the Paschal lines.

Go check his site. He has the official documents, bibles and everything anyone can dig up we send to Clarence.

As far as Reliance. Reliance did not go to NC she died in NJ. Just check out the site. Get a hot cup of coffee and enjoy.
