Bio and Links
Bio Photo At first the ferry was just a hollowed-out log canoe in which Henry Baker carried wayfarers across the Delaware River from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, to New Jersey. Horses had to swim and tired travelers were put up in the Baker home. Nearly a century later, in December 1776, General George Washington set up headquarters in a mansion near the prosperous tavern that had replaced Baker's house. In The Tavern at the Ferry, Edwin Tunis recreates the people, houses, and artifacts -- indeed, the whole way of life -- of a vital period in our country's history with his lively text and more than 100 meticulous and evocative pencil-and-wash drawings. He depicts the rhythms of daily life in pre-Revolutionary America, from cooking, eating, and drinking to farming and fishing, and describes how such enterprises as flax oil mills and ironworks operated.
Through Henry Baker (1634-1701) and his family, Tunis tells the story of America's growth in the colonial period and the growing dissatisfaction of its citizens with British rule. More than just set the scene, The Tavern at the Ferry chronicles the dramatic story of the events leading up to Washington's crossing of the Delaware and the ensuing Battle of Trenton, a turning point in the War of Independence. The weeks and days before the crossing were full of intrigue, and Tunis follows the stories of such men as John Honeywell, the patriot double-agent, and Moses Doan, the would-be betrayer, as well as those of the tired but determined troops who turned the tide of war under Washington's leadership. Whether illustrating a dance at a country tavern or soldiers marching across a snow-covered field, The Tavern at the Ferry provides the small, vivid details that bring history to life.

The date on the article is after your John Aufhammer in California dies. I'll let you noodle it out. It doesn't sound like this is a posthumous promotion, so I wonder if it fits at all some where. Maybe the one you have him linked to in California is the wrong one?

John Aufhammer, son of Dr. and Mrs. Charles H. Aufhammer, Thorndale, has been promoted to Captain. He is now stationed at Fort Benning, Ga.

John Cowgill; Memorial# 76245182
His first wife was Bridget Croasdale (1671-1701), daughter of Thomas & Agnes (Hawthornthwaite) Croasdale. The Croasdales also came on the ship the Lamb with the Cowgill family and many others under the same Certificate of Removal from Settle Monthly Meeting in England dated 4mo (June) 7, 1682. John & Bridget married 8mo (Oct) 19, 1693 at Middletown MM and had at least 4 children before her death, just 4 months after their daughter Ellin was born. I will be happy to send you a copy of their marriage certificate and Certificate of Removal from England if you are interested. On 20 Feb 1699 he purchased of his brothers-in-law (Wm & John Croasdale) 197 acres, part of a larger tract laid out to their father Thomas Croasdale, and after his decease, patented by the Commissioners of Property, June 28, 1692, to his heirs. This tract was located in Middletown township, Bucks county, fronting on Neshaminy creek, and appears on Holme's map in the name of "Widow Croasdal." ~~ It's been said that John's father, Ralph Cowgill, was arrested and hanged for his religious beliefs just prior to the family's departure for the colonies, however I obtained this information from a personal genealogy which offered no primary source as verification. :-) Claudia

Weir Telford Ingram
Miller Ingram's boy:
William was a Private in Co. E. Unit 99 Ill. Inf.

Weir Ingram was a Pvt. in Co. L. 3rd Reg't. Missouri Calvary.

I believe Weir is in the 1850 US Fed. Census in Clinton Co., Il. Dist. 68 living next to his brother George (spelled Engrum) with their dad James living with "War" and Lucinda.
