**Harry is the son of Henry Tompkins and Phoebe Ann McMaster.
NOTE: According to an oral history told by Hannah to her grandson Thomas Walker: Hannah and her parents lived for a short time on Beaver Island, Charlevoix Co., MI and later in Petoskey, Emmet Co., MI. Her father was a logger and he moved around northern Michigan following the sawmills for work. The family of 14 was very poor and both parents and older children worked outside the home to make ends meet. Hannah was 11 or 12 when she suffered from fainting spells and was sent to her Uncle and Aunt, Jack and Emma (Hunt) Ferguson for the summer. When she returned home she had put on some weight and no longer had the "spells". Hannah's first husband Harry Tompkins attended Petosky High School around 1902-05 and was on the wrestling team. Harry and Hannah met in Chicago. He was expert ice skater and a barrel jumper. They lived for a time in Chicago, IL, Emmet Co., MI, Saginaw Co., MI, Grand Rapids, Kent Co., MI and Rockford, Kent Co., MI. Hannah and Harry divorced and she sued him for non support. His mother Susan McMaster's owned the Grand Rapids house they lived in and Hannah reached an agreement with Susan that if she deeded over the house Hannah would never ask for support again. In 1928 Hannah had the house rebuilt, the children were placed in the Blodgett Home for Children so Hannah could work until the house was done. Hannah married Tom Callis in 1929. They had two daughters together and his son from a prior marriage living with them and the rest of the children. Tom Callis owned a restaurant in Grand Rapids and after his death Hannah sold the restaurant and moved to a 110 acre farm on 10 mile Rd., Rockford, Kent Co., MI. In 1938 Hannah married Farland Wilson. She ran him off and then divorced him in 1939 when she found out he was stealing and selling the farm animals and equipment. Next, Hannah married Charlie Brown in 1940. He was killed in 1950 when a wagon he was driving had its tongue break and slammed into a tree. Charlie was knocked off and the wagon rolled over him. Hannah lastly married Justin Case. During their 30 year marriage they built and remodeled homes for later sales and they also solely financed the construction of the Assembly of God Churches in Greenville, Montcalm Co., MI and in Rockford, Kent Co., MI.

McCOOL Family
NOTE: This family was primarily in North Carolina and Ontario Canada. Most of this information was graciously shared several years ago by a few researchers including Chaplain Dick McCool. If you have questions or further information on this family please contact me at the email link at the bottom of this page.
PERSONAL NOTE: We were sad to hear of the death in 2007 of Chaplain Richard McCool. On a brighter note, we have received further information from his niece about the McCool family.
12. John McCool Sr m. 1729 Ireland, Olivia (unknown).
Children are:
11. John McCool Jr. m., Sarah (unknown).
Children are:
10. Benjamin McCool b. Ireland.
10. Andrew McCool b. Ireland m. Halifax Co., VA, Ann Torian b. Halifax Co., VA.
NOTE: Marriage proven by Andrew’s 1785 Will. The proof of the parent - children relationship is not so air-tight as the majority of the research, but is the only relationship that fits. Halifax Co., VA is just fifty miles from Hillsborough, Orange Co., NC, the first known location for Archibald and Benjamin McCool. Archibald McCool was a Loyalist, he was a wagon driver and died along with his eldest son (George?) at the Siege of Charleston, SC during the Revolutionary War. Archibald’s remaining family fled to Canada after their Orange Co., NC lands were confiscated. Benjamin was also a Loyalist, but he and his family joined the other McCools in Abbeville Co., SC before moving northward into Pope Co., IL. Benjamin and his first cousin Joseph McCool, son of Adam, moved to a location within twenty five miles of each other in Illinois at just about the same time, early 1800s.
Children are:
9. Archibald McCool b.abt.1743 Ireland d. Siege of Charleston, SC m.abt.1763 Ireland or NC, Margaret (unknown).
ESTATE RECORDS: Estate Records of North Carolina VOL. XVI, 1782-1783: Margaret McCool to Governor Thomas Burke.
To His Excellency Thomas Burke, Governor of the State of North Carolina,
The Humble Petition of Margaret McCool Most Humbly Sheweth:
That your petitioner is a poor woman, and has a large helpless family of Young Children to Support, one of which is Arrived to the Age of been Set on the muster list and has been Drafted. The boy is not Sufficient for the undertaking, nor at any rate fitting for the Service, nor is your Petitioner able to hire a Substitute in his room. Therefore I most humbly implore and Petition your Excellency that you will think and take pity on the distressed as an object truly deserving compassion, as what little work he did at times was the Chief help I had toward Supporting myself and family. I therefore once more most humbly implore that your Excellency will take your poor Distressed Petitioner's Case into Consideration and grant her liberty to have her poor simple boy at home under her own Care, as he is in no wise fitting to be anywhere Else; and your Petitioner will ever Pray.
Signed: Margaret McCool (Written on back in Burke's handwriting): "No order can be taken until some person appears to give satisfaction relating to facts, &c."
FAMILY HISTORY: Archibald and Margaret McCool, before 1776, were living on a fairly prosperous farm in Orange County, NC. The McCool family consisted of four sons three daughters. When the Revolutionary War broke out, this family sided with the British cause, and Archibald, the father, and his eldest son (whose name is not given), joined the British Troops and were both killed in the defense of Charlesttown (Charleston). In 1794, after their farm and possessions had been confiscated because of their loyalty, Margaret McCool, widow of Archibald, made the long trek from North Carolina to the Niagara Peninsula of Upper Canada, no doubt lured on by the promise of free grants of land and compensation for their losses. In compensation for their losses, and because of their loyalty, and the death of her husband and eldest son, the name of Margaret McCool, widow of Archibald, was placed on the United Empire Loyalist List, and she and her family were given grants of Crown and in Norfolk County.

At the Battle of Quebec, Donald and Rob took part in the capture of that strong fortress, and remained with the garrison through the winter. The following summer they were transferred to Philadelphia where after three years of service they were honorably discharged. They settled in New Jersey and began raising their families. When the Revolutionary War began the two friends joined General Clinton in Long Island, NY. Rob did not survive the war and when Donald moved his family to Nova Scotia he took the Monroe family with him.

In his will dated, 1803, a year before his death he wrote of being very sick and weak of body which could be why he didn't show up at the Council Chamber in 1802 for his petition for land.
LAND PETITION: To His Honor Peter Russell Esquire President of the Government of Upper Canada etc. In Council - The petition of Conrad Book, Humbly sheweth: That your Petitioner is lately arrived in this Province from the Jersie's and had brought with him his family consisting of a wife and six children who are now at Nathaniel Pettits Esq. and that your Petitioner has bought a farm of Lar.

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT: In the name of God, Amen, I Conrad Book, in the township of Grimsby Settlement in the District of Niagara and the Province of Upper Canada bring very sick and weak of body, yet of perfect understanding and memory, thanks be given unto God, call unto mind the Mortality to my body and, knowing that it is appointed that all men needs die, Do make and ordain this my last Will and Testament.
Principally and first of all I give and recommend my Soul into the hands of Almighty God that gave it and my body I recommend to be buried in a decent and Christian manner at the Discretion of my Executor hereafter named, nothing doubting that I shall receive the same at the General Resurrection again by the mighty hand of God. And, as touching such worldly estate wherewith it has pleased God to bless me in this life, I give, devise and dispose of in the following manner, viz.---

OBITUARY: Canadian Champion, 17 Jun 1869: Adam Book - We have today to chronicle the death of Mr. Adam Book, senr., the oldest settler in the Township of Ancaster, which occurred at his residence yesterday morning. The deceased came to Ancaster in 1789, from New Jersey. His father took up a large tract of land, 200 acres of which was still in the possession of Mr. Book, on which he has resided upwards of 80 years. The deceased gentleman was present at the battle of Lundy's Lane, and took an active part in the stirring events of 1812 under General Brock. Up to within a few hours of his death Mr. Book enjoyed excellent health, having on the day previous returned from Simcoe, where he had been on business. He was a good specimen of a class fast passing away, whose places it will be well for the country, if they are filled by men of like integrity and industry.

NEWS: (1972?) Grassie Ladies: Life in the small hamlet of Grassie has been a most rewarding adventure for Mesdames Lydia Elizabeth (Lizzie) Duck, Charlotte (Lottie) Walker and Minnie Irene Duck. A grand total of 250 years has been written in the family album of memories for these three ladies, who have lived in this small community for most of their lives. Family ties and kind neighborhood friends have contributed so much to their reserved ways of country life. Their names can be found on the same family tree, due primarily to marriages associated with their husbands.
Mrs. Lizzie Duck, who was 90 years old this summer, has lived in Grassie since 1912 and still likes to talk about the years gone by. She has three grandchildren and three great grandchildren. "My husband and I had a wonderful and successful farming life, considering all the problems of this way of life," she commented. "I like meeting people and I like my friends to come and see me at my home. These lifelong friends mean a lot to me. "I also like visiting. About 35 ladies from the Fulton Church brought me a birthday cake a short time ago. Now I have three cakes after this big party."
A Saturday evening buffet supper was held recently at Rock Chapel Church hall in honor of the three Grassie ladies. The supper was supervised by Mesdames Frances Sherritt, Jean Black, Ethel Vickers and Edith Vickers.
"I was born in Grassie and lived there all of my life," remarked Mrs. Minnie Duck. "Life has been very good to me for these 80 years, as a mother of two girls and now a grandmother for 11 grandchildren. My grandchildren keep me feeling young again. "I was a public school teacher for 25 years, some before my marriage and the rest after my marriage. I like being part of a big family tree of relatives."
The three ladies are related to one another by marriages and the details of such can be found on the Duck family tree of relations.
Mrs. Lottie Walker, who has lived in Grassie since 1912 and who now is 80 years old, was born in Bracebridge. She later moved to Calgary, Alberta, then to her present home. This home is regarded as being 100 years old. "I like my grandchildren and I think I have had a very pleasant life," she commented. "I enjoy our family life and also like being a good member of the Grassie Gospel Church. "There have been many changes in things at Grassie partly due to the different people that have moved into the community. There also have been many changes in the church since I first started going to it many years ago." Mrs. Walker still likes to reminisce about the days gone by as a girl in Bracebridge. Music for this family party at Rock Chapel was contributed by Larry Duck at the piano and Stan Black and his violin. Charlotte Golwitzer, young daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Golwitzer, blew out the candles on her birthday cake before the cake-cutting ceremony involving the three honoured guests.

10. James Clendenning Sr b. Knowlton Twp., Sussex Co., NJ d.bef. 26 Jan 1797 Newark, Lincoln Co., Ontario m., (unknown).
HISTORY: Book P, pg 265 of the Council of Proprietors of West Jersey (survey return dated March 21, 1774, recorded May 5, 1774). The warrant for this land was originally issued to John Bullen (heir-at-law to James Bullen). That warrant passed through several hands between 1768-1774. James Clandinin purchased that warrant by deed dated March 19, 1774. The land, originally estimated at 200 acres, was originally located in Hardwick Twp., Sussex Co., NJ Hardwick is the next town northeast of Knowlton Twp. The survey was drawn in a very strange shape, as it includes the inlet and the outlet of Sand Pond (a 16 acre lake), but not most of the middle of the pond. Mr. Clandenin and his family settled on about 8 acres in the northern part of the property, well away from the pond. Very literally, this would have been the only area of tillable ground on the entire 200 acres. The site remains rugged yet truly beautiful. The cleared ground extended to the property line, which was the foot of the Kittatinny Ridge (then called Pahaqualong Mountain -- today, the Appalachian trail is located at the top of that ridge). The cleared area went down to a swamp and the Jacksonburg Creek (then called Stouts Brook). There sat the farm wedged in between the rocky geology of the mountain and the swampy forest below. To say the site was isolated would be an understatement. As the crow flies, the nearest neighbor was at least a mile away at the time. This area was one of the last places in Sussex/Warren Counties to be settled, and was primarily forested. A home was built, although we are unsure of any outbuildings. Ground was cleared, and a few stonerows were built. There, a small hand-dug spring exists that we do not yet know if Mr. Clandenin dug, or another later farmer.
On December 11, 1778, the New Jersey Legislature passed an act allowing confiscation of lands held by Loyalists. On March 25, 1779, a judgement was entered against Mr. Clandenin as a Loyalist, and the State of New Jersey became the owner of this tract. (This information was taken from deed book E-2, page 307, Sussex County Clerk's Office.) In or about 1815, the State transferred the land to Sussex County, which sold the land at auction to a Mr. Smyth. In 1825, Warren County was formed and the county line ran through the old Clandenin tract. Most of the property was now located in Hardwick Township, Warren County. The extreme northeastern portion of the property (including the entirety of the plantation) was now located in Stillwater Township, Sussex County. The farm in Hardwick was used during the Clandenin ownership, based on physical evidence discovered from the site during the recent archaeological investigation. Steve Kallesser is currently awaiting the archaeologists' report on the site. The websites below have pictures of the farm today. The bottom picture on this page (http://www.nobebosco.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=31&Itemid=1) shows some of the archaeology team sitting at the old spring on the Clandenin plantation. This picture is also from the Clandenin plantation, looking down towards the swamp. (http://www.nobebosco.org/index.php?option=com_easygallery&task=view&cid=273&Itemid=47).
