1154 William and Mary came to New England in 1636 and settled in Dorchester, (now a
part of Boston) MA. He was made a Freeman of the Colony May 17, 1637, was a
Selectman in 1637 (plus 20 more years). He was one of the Feoffees of the
school land from 1663 to 1680, and from 1663 to 1671 he was one of the
Commissioners to try and issue small causes. He was a Deputy to the General
Court in various years between 1658 and 1686.

1155 William Daniels emigrated from England, probably as a young man, and settled
in Dorchester (now a part of Boston). He married Catharine Grenaway. Her
father gave them all his property, and right to the common. They then moved
to Milton, and he built a tavern on the old road which ran over Milton Hill.
Catharine gathered the neighboring Indians around her in her house on Milton
Hill to teach them to read. William and his family were close to the church.
He lost 2 daughters in childbirth, and his son-in-law was killed by Indians. 
DANIELS, William (I3412)
 
1156 William had an older brother, named John, who also lived in Wethersfield.
The Rev. William Goodrich of Hedgesset in County Suffolk, England, calls them
both "my brothers" in his will. The first Conn. record of William is his
marriage to Sarah Marvin. He was deputy from Wethersfield to the General
Court at Hartford in 1662, and also one of the grand jury. He was referred
to as "Ensign Wm. Goodrich" in 1676, just after the close of King Philip's
War, indicating that he may have been in that Indian conflict. 
GOODRICH, William (I3095)
 
1157 William immigrated with his father to Boston about 1635, as a child. He grew
up in the Boston/Dorchester area, and married Ann Johnson here. Soon after
their marriage, they moved to Assonct--later called Freetown. He also owned
large tracts of land on the Taunton River, and resided there in 1672,
according to deed from the Plymouth Colony Records. William drowned in
crossing the Taunton River in a canoe with three other men during a storm.

1161 WILLIAM SHIELDS, Register and Recorder of Union County, is an able official, whose faithfulness in the discharge of his duties has won appreciation from the public, as is shown by his recent re-election to his post at the expiration of his first term of three years. He is a veteran of the Civil War, and is also a prominent business man, having been engaged in wagon-making in Kelly township, Union county, for many years previous to his election as above, and consequent removal to Lewisburg.

Mr. Shields is a native of Union county, having been born June 23, 1841, and is of Irish descent. His grandfather, William Shields, was born in County Down, Ireland, in 1776, and was married in the Old Country to Mary Thompson, also a native of Ireland, born in the same year. His early life was spent at the old home in Kelly township, Union county, where he attended the district school. Through assisting his father in the wagon shop, he became familiar with all branches of the trade, and had already engaged in it as a workman when he attained his majority. The Rebellion was then in progress, the need of soldiers becoming more and more urgent as the resources of the enemy were realized. Mr. Shields enlisted, in 1862, in Company E, 142nd P.V.I., and remained in service until after hostilities ceased, being mustered out June 26, 1865. He saw much severe fighting at Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, the Wilderness, Spottsylvania, Cold Harbor, Bethesda Church, Petersburg and other places which are made forever memorable by that struggle. On March 11, 1864, he was promoted to the rank of sergeant major, and on February 6, 1865, he received a wound, a token of courage and gallantry which was even more distinctive, though less agreeable, than the other.

On his return to the paths of peace, Mr. Shields resumed his business, and continued it until elected to his present office in 1894; his re-election coming in 1896, he entered upon his second term in January, 1897. In politics he is a Republican. He is identified with the Presbyterian Church, and, socially, with the G.A.R. As a citizen he has always been prompt to aid in local advancement.

On December 26, 1867, Mr. Shields married Miss Katherine Angeny, a native of Bucks county, Penn., born September 18, 1844, and seven children have blessed their union, their names with dates of birth being as follows: Esther L., December 26, 1868; Lillian, December 12, 1870; Ellen, January 31, 1873; William Scott, April 11, 1875; Edgar Thomson, September 24, 1877; Charlotte E., May 4, 1880; and James Leigh, January 27, 1885. 
SHIELDS, William (I182)
 
1162 William was born in Lancaster, but his parents moved to Milton because of the
Indian threat at the outbreak of King Philip's War. He grew up here, and
remained in Milton the rest of his life. William married Esther Puffer in
1697. The Boston Newsletter of 28 Dec. 1738 records his death: "Last
Thursday, Mr. Sumner, of Milton, being at Roxbury on his way to Boston, was
very much benumbed by the extreme cold, whereupon he stopped at a house to
warm himself, but suddenly was seized with a fit, and died in a few minutes." 
SUMNER, William (I2611)
 
1163 William was born in Milton, MA. He married Eleanor Daniels in Boston, MA.
They lived in Milton for a few years, then--sometime between 1734 and 1739
they moved to Mansfield, CT, and then to Pomfret, CT. There is no record of
their death in CT. Since their eldest and two youngest children moved to VT
about the time of the American Revolution, they probably also moved there and
died somewhere in VT while living with one of the children. 
SUMNER, William (I2669)
 
1164 William was only 10 years old when his mother arrived in America in 1682.
He started buying land at the age of 17, and by the year of 1712 he had
purchased a total of 650 acres of land. He was a farmer in Northampton Twp.,
Burlington Co., NJ. William and Sarah were of the Quaker faith. 
HAINES, William (I2577)
 
1165 WILLIAM WEIDENHAMER, farmer, was born in Berks county, Pennsylvania, January 29, 1832, son of Jacob and Susannah Weidenhamer, also natives of that county, who afterwards moved to Montour county, where the father engaged in farming and in the mercantile trade in Limestoneville. He was a Democrat in politics and filled various township offices. His death occurred in 1863 and that of his widow in 1887. They reared four sons and two daughters, five of whom are living: Wellington D., of Limestoneville; William; Daniel, of Milton; John A., of Watsontown, and Elizabeth E., who married Emanuel Mouser,of Liberty township, Montour county. Our subject moved to Montour county at the age of seven years and received his education in the common schools. At the age of nineteen years he began boating and has since followed different occupations, principally farming. On January 29, 1856 he was married to Margaret Kurtz, daughter of George Kurtz, of this county, and moved to Iowa, where he was engaged in lumbering and the mercantile business for four years. In 1867 he came to his present farm in Turbut township, where he has since remained. His wife died in 1887 and was the mother of the following children: Clarence A.; Harry; Thomas S.; William; Edward; Ada Gertrude; Clinton Ellis, and George S. Mr. Weidenhamer is a stockholder in the Milton creamery, The Record Publishing Company, the Milton Driving Park and Fair Association, and the Milton Trust and Safe Deposit Company. He has always taken a deep interest in the success of the Democratic party and was once a candidate for sheriff. He has served as school director for a number of years, having been recently re-elected to that office. He was a member of Milton Lodge. No. 256, F. &A. M., and a charter member of the Turbut Grange; he is a trustee of Trinity Lutheran church of Milton, and was a charter member of the Wilkes-Barre and Western Railroad Company. WEIDENHAMER, William Daniel (I5533)
 
1166 William Weidenhammer, son of Jacob and Susanna Weidenhammer, was born in Berks County, Pa., January 29, 1832. At the age of seven years he moved with his parents into Montour County, where he attended the common schools. At the age of nineteen years he began boating, after which he followed different occupations, principally farming, for forty seven years prior to his death on the farm just east of Milton, where he died July 7, 1910. He was a stockholder of the Milton Creamery, Record Printing Company, old Milton Fair and Milton Trust & Safe Deposit Company.
