he was a captain in the militia, and a blacksmith by trade. Before 1720 they removed to Worcester, where owing to poor early records, we have little accurate information. John and Deliverance bought 50 acres at Worcester in 1717. In 1748 John was sent to repel the Indians in a battle. John and Deliverance were both living in 1762.
On 15 July 1751 Jonathan and wife Mary sold a tract of land to John Farwell of Harvard, and they were also of Harvard.

Benjamin then married (3) 31 October 1754 Elizabeth COLEMAN, and after 1755 they seem to have left Lunenburg.
Tradition says they moved to Fitzwilliam, NH (Monadnock No. 4) in 1762, and were first settlers in the town, and that daughter Beulah was the first child born in the town, and she was born under a cart body, their cabin not yet ready for occupancy. Family tradition also says Benjamin was an original church member at Fitzwilliam (1771) and one of the first deacons, but church records do not show it. On 03 May 1771 Benjamin started for the mill in Winchester, NH with a bag of rye to be ground; he was drowned while crossing the Ashuelot river at Winchester. His widow joined the church 22 September 1771, but later returned to MA without taking a letter of dismissal .

He removed to Canada in the interest of his business, and settled at Hamilton, Ontario circa 1807.
On the breaking out of the War of 1812, he refused to take the oath of allegiance to the Crown, and consequently was arrested and his property confiscated, which left him destitute with a family of nine children. He was released on his parole of honour, and at the close of the war, after suffering many deprivations, he and his family with other American expatriates, managed to reach Buffalo, NY, and spent the winter in barracks. In the spring following they moved up the lake to where the Huron River (MI) flows into the lake, and lived there several months.

ALBERS, Herman Albert
BORN: Nov 27, 1797, Lengerich
DIED: Dec 2, 1855, age 58, Germantown, Clinton County, IL, St Boniface parish record
PARENTS: Joes Albert ALBERS
EMIGRATION: 1851 - arrived New Orleans Nov 8, 1851 on the ship Olbers
Dietrich LAGER 46 from Hannover to St. Louis
Maria 40, Johannes 17, Bendin 13, Caroline 3
with Herman ALBERS 50 (presumed brother of Maria)
SOURCES: This ID is not 100% certain because Herman's presence in the US is not well documented. He died 4 years after his arrival here. From his age at death (58), a possible entry was identified for him on the passenger list of the ship Olbers. He was grouped with the Lengerich-born family of Theodore Lager and his wife Maria Albers. That same parish's records were checked and a baptismal entry was found there also for Herman Albert Albers which corresponded to Herman's age at death and with the same parents as Maria, wife of Theodore Lager.
Lysander Cyreno Sawyer who resides on section 6, Lee Center Township, was born in Clark County, Ohio, January 11, 1818, and is a twin brother of L. Cyreruis Sawyer, of whom see sketch in another part of this volume. He came to illinois with his parents, and remained at home until he was eighteen years old, when he started out in life by himself. He worked for other people, and was also employed in improving his claim, located on section 1, Amboy Township. lie also worked one winter in the lead mines in Jo Daviess County. He then traded his claim for a farm in China Township, on which he settled, and where he lived almost fifteen years, then purchased the farm where he now lives, and which comprises fifty acres. He has here made good improvements, and has his farm in first-class shape.
In 1850, Mr. Sawyer, in common with so many of the Western people, was attacked by the gold fever, going overland to California with an oxteam, the journey occupying six months' time. He remained in California about two years, during which he had the usual varied experience of the seekers after gold. He was ill a good part of the time, and on this account was not so successful as He might otherwise have been. He returned by way of the Isthmus and came very near being drowned, as the steamer on which he embarked at San Francisco was unseaworthy, but they succeeded in reaching Acapulco, when the vessel completely gave out, the crew and passengers, however, congratulating themselves that matters were no worse. Mr. Sawyer returned to his far in China Township, where he has since remained. He was married in Lee Centre Township in September (28) 1840, to Miss Charlotte Shumway, who was born in Bradford County, Pa., September 19, 1820 where she grew to womanhood.
The father of Mrs. Sawyer, Darius Shumway, was a native of New York State, and her mother, whose maiden name was Catherine Hulburt, was born in New Jersey. They emigrated to Illinois, settling in Inlet Grove, in this county, but on account of sickness remained there but one year, when they returned to their old home in Pennsylvania, where they died. They had nine children, of whom Mrs. Sawyer was the second in order of birth.
Our subject and his wife are the parents of three children; Sarah e., who is the wife of Daniel Corell; William H., a farmer in China Township; and Hiram C., also a farmer, who resides in Sac County, Iowa. Mr. Sawyer is a strong Republican, and has held the office of School Director. Hrs. Sawyer is a member of the Methodist Episcopal CHurch, and is highly esteemed for her many amiable qualities.
