254 Colonel Clement Biddle engated in the shipping and importing business with his father and elder brother Owen, in which they were very successful, until the outbreak of the Revolution, after which he gave practically his whole time to the service of his country, Owen and Clement were among the first signers of the non-importation agreement, October 23, 1765. He assisted in organizing, and was one of the officers of the "Quaker LIght Infantry" later known as the "Quaker Blues", originally formed to defend the town against the threatened invasion of the "Paxtang Boys" at the time of the killing of the Conestoga Indians in 1763-4, which was re-organized in 1775, for the defense of American liberties and served in the Jersey campaign. July 8, 1776, Clement Biddle was appointed quartermaster-general of the Flying Camp, composed of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and other bodies of militia, with the rank of Colonel, and as such took part in the battles of Trenton, Princeton, Brandywine, and Germantown, was delegated by Washington to recdeive the swords of the surrendered Hessian officers at the battle of Trenton; and during the encampment at Valley Forge was active in securing supplies for the suffering soldiers, have his headquarters at "Moore Hall," Chester County, where his wife and family likewise resided. The next winter was spent with the army at Morristown, New Jersey. October 15, 1776, Colonel Biddle was at Amboy, New Jersey, when he was appointed by General Greene, as an aide de camp, and member of his staff, and during the remainder of that month and November was with General Greene at Fort Lee, on the Hudson. He however, returned to the Delaware with the retreating army across New Jersey, and participated in the heroic crossing of the Delaware on Christmas night, and the capture of the Hessians, as before stated. In the fall of 1781 he was appointed by the Supreme Executive Council, quartermaster-general of Pennsylvania, having served previously as commissary of supplies, and co-operated with his brother Owen, in securing ammunition and stores fo the use of the army in the field, like him pledging his own means to secure supplies, at a time when the state and nation was bankrupt. He was also appointed, November 10, 1780, United States marshal of the Court of Admiralty. He held this office and that of quartermaster-general of Pennsylvania militia, long after the close of the Revolution, officiating as such during the Whiskey Insurrection of 1794. He was commissioned Prothonotary of the Common Pleas Court of Philadelphia County, September 23, 1788, and judge lof the same court in 1791, his commissions being still in possession of the family. Biddle, Clement (I73)

260 Daniel Beedel, Jr. was witness to a deed of Richard Gildersleeve of Huntington to John Boldin of Hempstead dated 1 Mar 1704. There is an entry in Hempstead records for Daniel in a record with his father of 15 Feb 1714, which is also the last record that can be identified clearly with this Daniel. However, according to Tredwell's Additions and Corrections, he was living as late as 23 Jan 1742 [HTR vol 8, pp 270-272, 435, 480]. At the time of the Hempstead census in 1698, he probably resided with his uncle, Robert Bedell, Jr. [NYGB Record, vol 45, p 56]. There is confusion regarding Daniel's placement. Some genealogists list a Daniel Bedell as the son of Robert Bedell, Jr. who married Elizabeth Ireland. This is probably due to his residence with his uncle in the census of 1698 [p 2, col 2]. He witnessed the will of Gershom Smith of Hempstead on 6 Sep 1735 {New York Archives: Wills, Liber 12, p 369. He is listed as a member of the Queens County militia company, commanded by Captain Jacob Hicks, in 1738.

The following undated rights were laid out to Daniel Bedell:

75 1/2 acres in the "south woods" of Hempstead "above Coes Neck in his possession . . . in the propriety right and blank of Mr. Tappen" [HTR vol 8, p 282].

20 acres and 100 sp. rods in the same place, south of Samuel Bedel's dwelling house in the patent right of Robert Bedel [HTR vol 8, p 405].

25 acres and 100 sq. rods located to the south of Thomas Southard's land, 23 3/4 acres "near Abraham Bedel's house joyning to said Abraham bedel's lands," and a lot of 21 acres and 21 sq. rods at Rockaway "near ye Cornell housen," all in the patent right of Daniel Bedell [his father] [HTR vol 8, pp 405, 480]

4 3/4 acres in "south woods joyning to Carmans Swamp . . . in ye possession of Munsey" in the patent right of Robert Bedell, Sr. [HTR vol 8, p 480].

Tredwell in "Additions and Corrections" notes that Daniel may have been a son Daniel, who is identified in these records as the son of James [Robert(2), Robert(1)]. His sparse evidence for this alternative is based on the fact that Daniel, Jr., son of Daniel(2) [Robert(1)] may have been given cattle with the mark of Robert(2) when he was living with his uncle for the services that he provided to him during his stay. In addition, the Christian name Daniel points to this Daniel as the father of Daniel, rather than to James.

However, the Daniel of this record may have made Daniel [James(3), Robert(2), Robert(1)] his heir because he was his namesake and because of the close relationship that existed between the first cousins Daniel and James who were presumably brought up in the same household for a period of time.

Bedell Vertical Files, NYGBS Library, reviewed 9 Nov 1999: genealogy chart identifies him as son of Daniel citing property deeds, 1713-1714. The same chart identifies his children as James, Job, Daniel, and Ann [which we believe is in error].

The correct identification for Daniel Bedell, Jr. appears to be the following from Scott, Genealogical Data from Administration Papers, p 19: "Daniel Beadle of Hempstead, Queens County, who left several minor children -- Administration (21 Mar 1728) Jeremiah and Richard Beadle, of Hempstead, brothers of deceased." 
Bedell, Daniel Jr. (I080)
261 Daniel's wife in this record is shown as "Delrosa Synder". This is her maiden name, but she was previously married to Charles Forrest and this is the last name (Forrest) that she on the marriage documents when she married on Daniel Keefer. Keefer, Daniel (I1721)

Noteware, Emma J. (I093)
266 Daughter of Jonathan (Rock) Smith, Jr. and Elizabeth (Ellison?) Smith, granddaughter of Jonathan (Rock) Smith and Grace (Mott) Smith, and great-granddaughter of John (Rock) and Hannah Smith, and great-granddaughter of Adam and Jane (Hewlett) Mott. Identified in the Rock Smith Family genealogy, pp 23, 57-58, and 92. [See also Wills of the Smith Families of New York and Long Island, pp 8-9, and 32; and E. D. Harris, The Descendants of Adam Mott of Hempstead, Long Island, NY, 1898, p 1.] Jonathan Smith in his will dated 14 May 1746 left a cow and a calf to his daughter, Hannah, wife of Timothy Bedell [Valentine W. Smith, The Rock Smith Family to the Tenth Generation, 1937, p. 23; Abstract of Wills, Surrogate's Office, City of New York, vol 6, p 185, Liber 16, p 317]. Bedell Genealogy, Queens Borough Public Library, vol 6, Timothy, gives Jonathan Rock Smith, Jr.'s wife's maiden name as Elizabeth Pratt.

Hannah must have had a brother, John, since the will of Elias Cornelius [dated 20 Jul 1751], refers to his uncles, John Smith and Timothy Bedell.

Doherty, Settlers of the Beekman Patent, p 451: Hannah had a sister, Philena.

Reiley, b 26 Mar 1905 in Custer Twp, Antrim County, MI, d 24 Mar 1999 in Bellaire, Antrim County, MI. Forrest and Blanche also had a daughter, Eunice who married Verd Lambert. Eunice and Verd had children: 1) Norma m Dale Barnes, 2) James m Nancy, and Elsie m Don Altheran. Loyd's obituary, Antrim County News: "A 1924 graduate of Bellaire High School, he received a bachelor's degree from Central Michigan University and a master's degree from Michigan State University. He taught school in Alva, Roscommon, Sterling, Bellaire, Rapid City, Alden and Posen. A resident of Bellaire most of his life, Loyd was a member of the Bellaire Community United Methodist Church, Gideon International, the Grand Traverse 29ers Mission Group, the Bellaire Lions Club, Bellaire Masonic Lodge No. 398 and the Antrim County Retired Michigan Education Association.

290 Earliest listing of David is in the Hempstead census of 1698 [NYGB Record vol 45, p 57]. On 9 Apr 1709 he is a witness with his brother, Jeremiah, to the will of Jeremiah Wood of Hempstead [Wills of Queens County, Liber A, p 207 (Abstract of Wills of Queens County, p 53)] This was followed on 26 Dec 1709 when he witnessed a deed of John Bedell to John's son, Samuel [Tredwell, NYGB Record, vol 71, p 247]. David recorded his ear mark on the town books of Hempstead 6 Jun 1711 as "a half [penny] of the fore side of earch ear". He probably married before 1721 (name of wife is unknown), and she died before 3 May 1759, the date of David's will. On 26 Feb 1711/2, Isaac Smith of Hempstead sold to David Bedele (for 70 pounds) 50 acres of land south of the "great plains of Hempstead" at "Sherman's Neck," and he delivered possession on 5 Mar 1710.

Henry Onderdonk, Jr., The Annals of Hempstead; 1643 to 1832; Also, The Rise and Growth of the Society of Friends On Long Island and In New York, 1657 to 1826 (Hempstead, NY: Lott Van de Water, Publisher, 1878), p 68: David listed with his brother Joseph among owners of meadow on a neck called Hungry Harbor who met to fence it according to every man's proportion to keep it from damage.

On 26 Feb 1712, Isaac Smith of Hempstead sold to David Bedele 50 acres of land for 70 pounds. The land was south of the "great plains of Hempstead," at a place called "Sharman's Neck," and he delivered possession on 5 March. In 1715, David Beedell was listed as a private in a company of "horse in Queens County under ye command of Capt. Timothy Bagley."

On 7 Oct 1723 David Beedel was instructed to warn all the freeholders of Hempstead of a town meeting to be held the following Monday. On 25 May 1725, David Beadell sells for 37 pounds to Samuel Hewlett a parcel of the Salt Meado at Hungry Harbor bounded on the east by Mott's Creek, on the south by John Peters' meadow, on the west by Edward Cornell's meadow and on the north by the division between the meadow being sold and Samuel Hewlett's meadow [Hempstead Town Records [HTR], vol 5, p 310In a petition dated 20 Oct 1745, David and Abraham Bedell asked that a highway be run from a point where the Hempstead-Jamaica road touched "West Meadow northward to Great neck path".

Bedell Staten Island Records, p 3: David Bedell witness to the will of Gershom Smith of Hempstead on 3 Sep 1735 [New York Archives, Wills, Liber 12, p 369], and witness to the will of Joseph Carle, Sr. of Hempstead which was proved on 26 Oct 1741 [New York Archives, Wills, Liber 14, p 148].

David was a fuller and probably also a farmer [WNYHS vol 5, p. 313]. He acted as a constable and collector of the town of Hempstead from 7 Aug 1721 until Apr 1735, and again from 5 Apr 1737 to 3 Apr 1753, and probably during the interim [HTR vol 3, pp 27, 33, 39, 71, 77, 81, 89, 93, 100, 107, 118, 129, 153, 177, 259, 261, 263, 266, 268, 270, 271, 473, 474, 475, 477, vol 4, pp 44, 45, 97].

Collections of the New York Historical Society, 1896, "Abstracts of Wills," [Will Book vol 3 [1730-1744], p 346 [liber 14, p 148], David Bedell was witness to the will of Joseph Carle, Sr. of Hempstead in Queens County, proved 26 Oct 1741.

The next three notices may refer to David's son, David:

On 9 May 1751, David, Joseph, and Jacob Bedell, and others, consented to Benjamin Lewis' request that the lane leading to Bloom's Mill be stopped. On 20 Dec 1755, David, Jacob and Daniel Bedell, and others, voted against fencing the plains of Hempstead and at the same time entered a request for a highway to the watering holes on the same. At a town meeting on 19 Apr 1757, David and Jacob Bedel and others declared themselves against "using public money" to have the plains fenced.

Abstracts of Wills, Surrogate's Office, City of New York, vol 5, p 313: Liber 21, p 322; see also NY Historical Society Collections, 1896, p 313. David died between date of his will, 3 May 1759, and its probate date of 6 Jun 1759. " Page 322. -- In the name of God, Amen, May 3, 1759. I, David Bedel, of Hempstead, in Queens County, being sick. I leave to my son my fulling mill and instruments of fulling, also 100 acres of land adjoining to the same, with the dwelling house and appurtenances. Also 1/2 of all my land and meadow at Hungry Harbor, And he is to pay 1/2 of all just debts and funeral charges and proving my will. He is also to pay 75 pounds to my grand son, Jacob Bedel, when of age, and 25 pounds to my grand daughter, Margaret Bedel, when 18, and he is to pay the interest on both these sums to my daughter in law, Hannah Bedel, so long as she remains the widow of my son, Jacob Bedel.

"I leave to my son Elias, my homestead on which I now live, with all buildings and about 83 acres of land lying between John Durlon and Daniel Comb's land, Also 1/2 of allthat trace of land and meadow at Hungry Harbor, and all my Patent right in Hempstead, And he is to pay 1/2 of all debts and funeral charges and the cost of proving this will, Also 95 pounds to my grand son Jacob Bedell, and 25 pounds to my daughter, Elizabeth Bedel. I leave to my daughter, Mary Bedel, 23 pounds, All the rest of my movable estate to my 5 daughters, Phebe Mott, Elizabeth Alburtis, Hannah Hall, Anne Pine, and Mary Bedel. I make my sons David and Elias executors.

"Witnesses, Peter Fowler, James Burtis, Jr., David Beattie. Proved, June 6, 1759."

[Tredwell, Corrections; Berthold Fernow, Calendar of Wills, 1626-1836].

The following undated patents were laid out to David Bedel:

11 acres in "Shearman's Neck," Hempstead, part of a card of 33 acres, in the right of Jeremiah Wood, Jr. [HTR vol 8, p 396]; 12 acres on the same neck in the right of Jeremiah Wood, Sr. [HTR vol 8, p 349];" and 6 1/4 acres on the same neck in the right of the elder Wood, "joyning to his [David's] farm [HTR vol 8, p 441].

Jacob and David Seaman had a right laid out consisting of 22 1/3 acres in the "South Woods," part of a card of 55 acres and 144 sq. rods on the east side of Rockaway River bounded easterly by a highway "from between John Durland's and David Bedels housen to Langdon's Mill . . . said land lyeth below David Bedels fulling mill [HTR vol 8, p 441].

15 1/4 acres were laid out to Robert Hubbs in the patent right of John Hubbs, being on "the east side of Rockaway River between river and a highway from Hempstead to Langdon's mill and a little above David Bedels fulling mill" [HTR vol 8, p 429]. 
Bedell, David (I058)
291 Earliest notice in the Hempstead records of Robert is 1 Sep 1681when his father deeded him his dwelling house [HTR vol 2, pp 77-78]. In the Hempstead Aug 1694 census, their children are James and Job [NYGB Record vol 45, pp 56-57]. Robert was a farmer. His name appears very seldom on the public records [Tredwell, "Robert Bedell of Hempstead," NYGB Record, vol 71, p 147].

On 11 Oct 1683, the evaluation of Hempstead estates lists Robert Beagle, Juner as owner of 23 acres of land and meadows, 4 oxen, 3 cows, 3 head of other cattle, 3 sheep and 1 horse [Carol M. Meyers, Rate Lists of Long Island, 1675, 1676, and 1683. Saugus, CA: RAM Publishers, 1967, p 74]. On 1 Jun 1697 Robert Bedle Juner of Hempstead deeded a tract of land to Jeremiah Wood, sener. Robert and Elizabeth are listed in the Hempstead census of 1698 [p 2, col 2]. On 10 Jun 1702, Timothy Carele of Hempstead conveyed to his brother, Joseph Carele, and Robert Bedele of Hempstead a lot on "mill river" in Hempstead. The last notice of Robert in Hempstead that appears in the town records is on 4 Aug 1703 when Robert Bedell and his brothers, Daniel and John, made an agreement regarding a meadow at "Cow necke." No record of a will or letters of administration on his estate has been found. A Benia Bedle and Joseph Bedle are listed in 1738 as members of the Queens County militia company commanded by Capt. Jacob Hicks. The parents of Benia [Benejah, Benjamin?] and Joseph have not been identified.

It is possible that some of the descendants of Robert, Jr. settled in New Jersey along with the descendants of his brother, John. The only basis for this speculation is a repetition of given names and compatible birth and death dates. The first Bedle (Beadle) noted in Monmouth County, NJ was Jeremiah Bedle, 1658-1738, who is buried at Topanemus [Topanernus?]. See also Joel Bedell [James(3), Robert(2), Robert(1)] ["Jersey Genealogies," Newark Sunday News, 10 May 1918, no. 5985].

Were there additional children of Robert, Jr., who may have settled in New Jersey? There is no direct evidence in the earlier Littell and Treadwell genealogies. While a William Bedle is mentioned as owning the land bordering on the north in a 30 Jun 1699 deed for 70 acres near Spring Hill, Burlington County [from Daniel Leeds to John Antrum of Northampton [NJD -D:406]], the geographic placement and chronology is not consistent with descendants of Robert of Hempstead. Moreover, the surname spelling of Bedle is consistent across several generations for a family not descended from Robert, and said to have immigrated at an early period from the Bahamas.

Charles C. Gardner, Genealogical Dictionary of New Jersey: notes a deed concerning James and Job, sons of Robert Bedell [MCHAM, Miss Brown papers].

However, a Samuel Bedell who appears in Gardner's Notes [Alexander Library, Rutgers University] is geographically consistent with the settlement in New Jersey of others of Robert's descendants, and consistent with the prospect that Robert, Jr. may have had a son, Samuel, who was the father of a Samuel who marries a Phebe. See the notes for Samuel(4) Bedell [Robert(1), John(2), Samuel(3); and the notes under the unidentified Bedell family progenitor, Samuel [b. 1742] who marries a Phebe [maiden name not known].

There are also other Bedell and Beadle families with origins in Morris County and Somerset County, New Jersey who remain unidentified [e.g., Benjamin Bedell who marries Rachel Covert, and Jonathan Beadle]. These families cannot be placed within the unidentified Samuel Bedell family. Given names of male Bedell descendants in these families are consistent with both those found in descendants of Robert[1], John[2], Samuel[3] and Robert[1], John[2], and John[3] branches. This would more logically suggest that the unidentified families are descendants from Robert[1], John[2] rather than from Robert[1], Robert[2]. In addition, Joel[4], son of James[3], and grandson of Robert[2] settled in Monmouth County -- an area inconsistent with the land patents of descendants of Robert[1], John[2].

Finally, a Joel Bedell is listed as a witness to the will of Richard Betts, Jr. of Newtown, Queens County, NY. The witness Joel could not be the son of James since Joel, son of James, was not born until 1823, and the will of Richard Betts, Jr. was dated 26 Jan 1710 and proved 21 Mar 1712 [Abstract of Wills, Surrogate's Office, City of New York, vol 2, p 84, Liber 8, p 88].

295 Eliza was a patient at Allegheny County Home, Woodville, PA for 6 months, sixteen days before she died. It appears as though someone from Woodville signed her death certificate and they have her "given" named spelled as Lidie. Her cause of death is listed as pulmonary tuberculosis. The date of burial is March 11, 1916. The place of burial is Woodville State Hospital, which was founded in 1954 as a Poor House. In 1915, it became a Tuberculosis Hospital.

Woodville was also known as Allegheny County Home for the Insane and Tuberculosis. A diagram for this cemetery is located at the Pennsylvania State Archives and also, the Allegheny County Courthouse Engineer's office. There are 1061 graves with stone pillars showing only a number and no names or dates.

Woodville Cemetery is located in Collier Twp, PA, Near 1-79 and Ridge Road (behind Heidelberg Shopping Center). Additional information about Woodville is located in the Pennsylvania State Archives, located in Harrisburg.
