Description:
This data collection contains an estimated 80,000 application files from officers and enlisted men who served in the Revolutionary War in all branches of the American military: army, navy, and marines. The files that make up these records consist of 10" x 14" cards or 10" x 14" envelopes that can contain documents relating to an application for a pension or bounty-land warrant by a Revolutionary War veteran, his widow, or his heirs. The files can contain a wide variety of records submitted to support an application. Information of genealogical interest includes the application itself, which can provide the soldier’s name, rank, unit, time of service, age, date of birth, residence, and sometimes birthplace. He was born on 20 November 1721 at Hingham, Province of Massachusetts.1 He was the son of Joseph Souther III and Content Tower. Joseph Souther IV married Abigail Kent, daughter of Ebenezer Kent and Hannah Gannett, on 22 October 1744 at Hingham, Province of Massachusetts.2,3,4 In the town meeting of 1770 after the "District of Cohasset" had been separated from the original town of Hingham, most residents were pleased that they no longer had to make the long, rugged trip to Hingham to attend town meetings, but at least one Beechwood resident opposed separation from the parent town. "This parish is small," said Joseph Souther. "Too small to stand on its own." Determined to prove him wrong, the citizenry elected their first town officers.5 Joseph enlisted as a Private in Captain Thomas Cartwright's Company of the Regiment of Foot Command by Colonel Henry Jackson in the service of the United States on 28 May 1777.6 Joseph Souther IV appeared on the census of 1790 at Cohasset, Massachusetts.7 He died on 8 February 1808 at Cohasset, Massachusetts, at age 86.8,9 He died on 23 February 1808 at Cohasset, Massachusetts, at age 86.10 He died on 28 February 1808 at Cohasset, Massachusetts, at age 86.11,12,13 He died on 2 March 1808 at Cohasset, Massachusetts, at age 86.14,15 His estate was probated on 2 April 1808 at Norfolk County Probate #17136 - Will, Cohasset, Massachusetts; Transcribed by Richard Dennis Souther from the original Will of Joseph Souther, Norfolk Probate #17136, held at the Norfolk County Probate Court in Dedham, MA.

William Henry Gill

M, b. 23 December 1866, d. 13 April 1932
     Wellfleet Massachusetts, 1890

Wellfleet is an interesting fishing and commercial town in the northeasterly part of Barnstable County, and near the middle of the outer arm of Cape Cod, 106 miles from Boston by the Old Colony Railroad. The stations are Wellfleet, (village and centre) and South Wellfleet; which are also the post-offices. The other villages are Billingsgate, Dog Town, Fresh Brook Village and Painsville.

The population is 1,687. The boundaries are Truro on the north, the ocean on the east, Eastham on the south, and Cape Cod Bay on the west. The assessed area is 5,450 acres; and nearly one half is devoted to woodland; but the actual forest, consisting of oak and pine, is but 833 acres. The territory is about 8 miles in length, and from two to four between ocean and bay. It consists of hills and knolls of sand; and in the hollows between them lie as many as fifteen fresh-water ponds. Of these, eleven are situated almost in a straight line north and south. Gull Pond, the largest and most beautiful, is a circular sheet of water about one half a mile in diameter. Great and Long Ponds are the next in size; Duck Pond, near the centre of the town, is surrounded with fine white sand. The "Pilgrim Spring" is an object of some historical interest. A line of islands, running southerly, and terminating with Billingsgate Island and a very small one adjacent, bearing a light, forms Wellfleet Bay, which occupies the western side of the southern half of the town. From this extend three harbors, having ten or twelve feet of water at high tide.

There is quite an area of salt marsh, yielding hay; and there are several large cranberry fields. The value of the product of the 66 farms in 1885 was $44,289. The largest manufacturing establishment is the Wellfleet Boot and Shoe Factory, which, however, is idle at many times. Carriages, clothing, wrought stone, boats and small vessels, metallic goods, oils and food preparations were constant products. The total value of goods made was $61,811. The curing and preserving of fish occupied 17 persons; 195 were employed in the fisheries. The latter yielded the value of $165,874; mackerel furnishing $160,627 of this amount, and alewives and bluefish most of the remainder. Thirty-six schooners, 91 dories and 42 seine-boats were engaged in this business. The commercial marine consisted of a barque of 1,138 tons, and 10 schooners aggregating 3,073 tons. The mercantile business of the town is transacted chiefly by 35 merchants and dealers. The Wellfleet Savings Bank, at the close of last year, held deposits to the amount of $336,579. The valuation in 1888 was $607,466, with a tax-rate of $15.80 on $1,000. The legal voters numbered 504; and the taxed dwelling-houses, 434.

The town sustains a high school, and others of the grammar and primary grades, for which are provided 9 school buildings, valued at about $6,000. There are a large circulating library and several Sunday-school libraries. The churches are one each of the Congregationalists, Methodists and Universalists. The Indian name of Wellfleet was Punonakanit. It was included in Eastham until June 16, 1763, when it was set apart and incorporated as a town under its present name; which, possibly, may have been evolved from the environment.

Some of the first settlers were Thomas Newcomb, Moses Hatch, William Dyer, John Doane, Thomas Gross and Ebenezer Freeman. The first church was organized, and the Reverend Isaiah Lewis ordained minister, in 1730.

In April, 1717, Samuel Bellamy, a noted pirate, was wrecked in his ship, Whidah, of 23 guns and 130 men, on the shoals off Wellfleet, after having captured several vessels on the coast; only two persons of his crew -- an Indian and an Englishman -- escaping to the shore. Six of the pirates, who had been run ashore when drunk at the same time by the master of a captured vessel, were hung in Boston in November, 1717. The iron caboose of Bellamy's vessel has sometimes been seen at low tide; and pieces of money have been found in the vicinity of the wreck. There is now a U.S. life-saving station on this shore.

Wellfleet gave 221 men to uphold the Union cause during the war of the Rebellion; and it has erected a suitable monument in memory of those who perished in the service.

Beniah Higgins Gill

M, b. 5 September 1828, d. 5 October 1881
     Beniah Higgins Gill was Seaman / Farmer. He was born on 5 September 1828 at Eastham, Massachusetts. He was the son of Isaiah Higgins Gill and Abigail "Nabby" Knowles. Beniah Higgins Gill was also known as Benniah H. Gill [Marriage record]. He appeared on the census of 18 September 1850 at Eastham, Massachusetts.1 He appeared on the census of 1860 at Eastham, Massachusetts. He appeared on the census of June 1870 at Eastham, Massachusetts.2 He married Sarah A. Sparrow, daughter of Isaac Sparrow and Margaret, on 23 November 1870 at Eastham, Massachusetts.3,4 Beniah Higgins Gill appeared on the census of 4 June 1880 at Eastham, Massachusetts.5 He died on 5 October 1881 at Eastham, Massachusetts, at age 53.6 The 1870 census revealed a "B.H. Gill" residing with "S.A. Sparrow" unmarried and a 3 year old son, Wm. H. Gill. Also residing with them was a Desire W. Sparrow, perhaps a sister of Sarah. Beniah is a Seaman, age 42 born in Massachusetts with a Real Estate value of $580 and a personal estate of $255. Why were they listed with only initials when every other person on the entire census page had a full name? Was it because they were living together with a child and unmarried?

Beniah was listed on the 1880 Federal Census for Massachusetts as being born in Maryland - I don't think that is correct as the Gill family has long resided in Eastham. I've heard his "wife" was born in Maryland - perhaps there was a mix-up). Beniah was noted as a Seaman, but his death record indicates he was a Farmer.

All evidence shown in the 1880, 1900 and 1910 Federal Census for Massachusetts indicates that Sarah was born in Maryland. There is some conflict as to whether her parents were born in Massachusetts or Maryland. Based on her birth date of April 1846, she would be about 15 in 1860 and I do find a 15 year old Sarah Sparrow, born in Maryland who was residing in Washington Ward 4, Washington, District of Columbia in the 1860 Federal Census for Maryland. Parents listed were Kainsey Sparrow, age 60, born in Maryland, Laborer, real estate value of $500 and Mary, age 39, born in Maryland. Younger siblings were John age 11; William 9 and Phillip 8, all born in Maryland. (Until I can find better evidence saying otherwise, I believe these are her family).8

She was The 1880 Federal Census for Massachusetts says she was born in Maryland and both her parents were born in Massachusetts. The 1900 Federal Census for Massachusetts says she was born in Maryland her father in Massachusetts and her mother in Maryland.

Somewhere I got info saying her parents were Isaac Sparrow and Margaret. ??? No proof! She and Desire W. Sparrow were associated.

Woodward Augustus Perry

M, b. 4 April 1877, d. 1 January 1926
1903 at Irene Gregory's house - Wood & Edith use to live with them!
     Woodward Augustus Perry was Engineer. He was born on 4 April 1875 at Rockland, Maine.1,2 He was born in 1876 or 1877.3 He was born on 4 April 1877 at Rockland, Maine.4,5 He was the son of Charles Woodart Perry and Georgie Etta Cables. Woodward Augustus Perry was also known as Woodard Perry (on daughter Ruth's birth certificate). Woodward Augustus Perry was also known as Willard Perry (in Mount Wollaston Cemetery plot map). Woodward Augustus Perry was also known as Wood Perry. Woodward Augustus Perry was also known as Albert Perry (in the 1880 Federal Census). He appeared on the census of 4 June 1880 at Rockland, Maine.6 He married Edith May Dow, daughter of Nathaniel Alford Dow and Clara E. Spear, on 13 August 1902 at Boston, Massachusetts.7,8 Woodward Augustus Perry appeared on the census of 25 April 1910 at Alton, New Hampshire.9 He appeared on the census of 9 January 1920 at Hyde Park Avenue, Boston [Ward 22], Massachusetts.10 He died on 1 January 1926 at Boston, Massachusetts, at age 48.11,12 He was buried at Mount Wollaston Cemetery, Section F, Lot 551 or 552, Quincy, Massachusetts. Woodward was employeed as an Engineer at the Quincy Granite Quarry. At the time of his marriage, he and Edith were residing at 37 1/2 Hanson Street in Boston. Woodward was listed as a Foreman and Edith as a Milliner. They were married by James O. Fallon, Justice of the Peach of Boston. He and Edith are buried at Mount Wollaston Cemetery, Section F, Lot #551 & #552.

He was recorded as "Albert" on the 1880 Federal Census for Rockland, Maine. (Was his middle name "Albert" instead of Augustus? Could his first name also be Woodart in honor of his father and he was called "Albert" to tell them apart and both of his names have been corrupted over time?). His full name [Woodward Augustus Perry] written in his own hand can clearly be seen on the World War I Draft Registration Card he signed on 12 Sep 1918 at the Boston Army Supply Base. Serial #3019, Order #A2287. At that time he was residing with his wife Edith M. Perry at 260 Hyde Park Avenue, Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts and working as an Engineer for W. F. Kearns Company in Quincy. He recorded his birthdate as 4 Apr 1877 and physical description as medium height and weight with brown eyes and gray hair.4 I have personally searched page by page of the 1900 Federal Census of both Rockland, Knox, Maine and Alton, Belknap, New Hampshire and have not found any of our three generations of Perry in any of the records. He was described on 15 July 2010 at 54982383.
