307 Enlisted at Upper Darby, Pvt. in 1st Co. of Col. John L. Pearson regiment
Military service: Bet. 1812 - 1814, Fought in the War of 1812

1840 Census: No names are listed in the census except Head of Household. The following names have been surmised from research of later census and other records -- Joseph (50); Mary (43); Isabella (19); Sarah (18); James (15); Mary Jane (13); Margaret (10); Eliza (8); Joseph (4); Unk female (<5); Unk female (<5)

(Research):By John Matviya - I was in Harrisburg at the State Archives. The pension records of Joseph Biddle for his service in the war of 1812. The archives have three categories of records for that war: an index of military service; final settlements; and pension records. I used the index to find the microfilm I wanted to look at the pension records (an application). I did not have time to look at final settlements to even see what it was. Our Joseph Biddle was listed in the index (only one Joseph) and I copied the 4 pages of the pension application. Joseph Biddle's application indicates that he was a resident of Allegheny County at the time of the filing, on the 12th of June 1869. He said that he was "duly enlisted at Upper Derby (Darby) (now part of Philadelphia)" about May 1812 and served as a Private in 1st company commanded by Capt John Hall and attached to regiment commanded by Col. John L. Pearson that served until the 10th day of January, 1814" and that he was honorably discharged on or about June 1814. He swore that he had not received any other compensation from the government and made his Mark. On the 3rd page appears an affidavit by one of his two witnesses: William Biddle, who also on June 12, 1869 appeared before the government official and swore that he was a resident of Allegheny County PA and was "well acquainted with Joseph Biddle" and his war service. On the fourth page, same date, both William Biddle and James Biddle swear that they are personally acquainted with Joseph and his service. William made his mark but James signed the document himself.
Besides giving the date of service in that war, the document tells us that in 1812 Joseph was probably living near Darby where he enlisted.

309 Extract from "History of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, A. Warner & Co., Chicago, 1889. Page a648" This extract is exactly as written in the original document -- with nothing added:


John Lynch, farmer, post office McKeesport, son of David and Catherine Lynch, was born in Elizabeth township, this county, Dec 17, 1817. Patrick Lynch, his grandfather was from and married in Ireland, whence he and his wife immigrated to America, location in Elizabeth township, where they both died. David Lynch, who was a farmer, was born in Elizabeth township, and married Catherine, daughter of John Tillbrook. He had six children, viz.: Ann (deceased), May (Deceased), Rebecca (now Mrs. James Biddle), Martha (Now Mrs. James Carroll), Eliza (Now Mrs. William Biddle) and John. John was reared in Allegheny County, and with the exception of three years has always lived here. In 1852 he married Annie, daughter of Abram Leatherman, and after marriage they located on the farm they now own in Versailles township, where they have since lived. They have three children, as follows: Catherine (now Mrs. Charles Jones), David and Abram. David married Lizzie E., daughter of Joseph Ludwick, in 1882, and they have one child, John Howard. Abram, in 1886, married Myra W., daughter of Joseph Ludwick, and they have one child, Anna Lula.

311 Extract from "The Early Pioneers -- Benjamin Custard 1741 - 1826"

"Benny" Castor was one of Sampson P Castor's six children. We are now in the fourth generation in Jefferson - Benjamin Custard's great-grandchildren... We have numerous photos of Benny and his wife, Josephine Margaret Bedell, now Biddle. He lived from 1862 - 1935, and is buried at Stone Chapel. "Benny" is pictured at the beginning of this article. Benny had three children: Bill, Grace and Clifford. Bill never married, nor did Grace. The parchment copy of the survey done by Pennsylvania in 1785 was passed on to Bill. Clifford was in World War I. Clifford 1894 - 1940 had three children, including a son Benjamin. Benjamin, born 1929, had two children, including a son Ben, born 1951, who went to Thomas Jefferson High School the same time as I did. I think that all the Castors in Pittsburgh are part of this lineage, going back 7 generations to Benjamin and Ruth Custard.

1880 Census shows name as Florence F. All other census records shows this person as James F.; all with the same birthyear. The name of the parents and siblings (and their dates) all correlate to the same person with different names. I feel that James F. is correct

326 First called Robert's wife 11 Dec 1667, but probably was married to her before 1644. Blanche died between 1 Sep 1681 and Aug 1698 since her name does not appear in the Hempstead 1698 census. Jim Sabin in his Family Group Sheets on file at the Greene County, NY Historical Library has a last name for Blanche of King with a ? mark, with her father listed as "Robert King?" There was a Robert King in Hempstead Long Island, but he did not have a child named Blanche. Robert King was from Weymouth, Dorset County, England. Bedell Family Descendents List spells given name Blanche.

333 For descendants of Catharine and Thomas, see the file rdjer2cath.

The marriage date given is from the manuscript. The records of the Secretary of the Province of New York list the date of marriage as 11 Jan 1777, and another family history lists the date as 23 Nov 1776.
Peters, Powells of the Hudson Valley sources and notes: 1) alternate given name spelling of Catherine; 2) Walter Burke letter, 9 Oct 1980; 2) Harold Smith Papers, New York State Library, Albany.

In 1790 US Census, Hempstead, Queens County: Thomas Clowes, 2 males over 16, 2 males under 16, and five females.
In 1800 US Census, Hempstead, Queens County: Thomas Clows, 1 male 10-16, 1 male over 45, 1 female under 10, 1 female 16-26, 1 female 26-45, 2 slaves. 
Bedell, Catharine (I034)
 
334 For descendants of Gilbert and Margaret, see the file rdjer2gil.

Relocated to VA. Bunker and Wardwell state that he moved South. Albright identifies Gilbert as having married Hannah Smith. This is probably in error since there is a Gilbert Bedell (Robert-Daniel-Jeremiah-Jeremiah -Richard-Gilbert) who is reported by another source as having married Hannah Smith. A page of notes by Tredwell in the NYGBS Library files states Gilbert was born in 1757.

The central issue is whether this is the Gilbert who married Margaret Hulse, and, if so, when he relocated to Virginia.

This Gilbert fits the age chronology for the Gilbert in the 1800 US Census, Hempstead, Queens County: 1 male 26-45, 2 males under 10, 1 female 16-26.

335 For descendants of Jemima, see the file rdjer2jem.

Went to London, England during the Revolutionary War [C.H. Bedell, Bedell Family Notes, pp 2, 7]. Tredwell, Additions and Corrections, states from Mr. Wardwell that she was born in 1747 and married Lewis Hewlett. Tredwell also records the marriage to Lewis Hewlett in notations made probably after the publication of his articles in the NYGB Record in 1941 and 1942. The marriage to Hewlett does not seem likely. The marriage to Lewis Hewlett is also reported by Bunker, p 173, but not by Peters.

Peters, Powells of the Hudson Valley sources and notes: 1) Walter Burke letter, 9 Oct 1980; 2) Harold Smith Papers, New York State Library, Albany.

Len Metzner in emails of 1 Dec 2001 and 3 Dec 2001 states "our earliest known ancestor, we think worked for Thomas Miles, in fact we are inclined to think that he was brought to U.K. by Thomas. He named his first born child, Jemima and his next child William Miles Metzner after this family. This earliest known ancestor was possibly the illegitimate son of Jemima, by a father yet unknown, but rumoured to be . . . a noble family in America. [ed. note: it is possible that the reference to "noble family in America" may have been confused between Jemima and the father. If the reference was really to Jemima instead of the unknown father, it would tend to support Robert Bedell of Hempstead being the younger son of John Bedell, the Younger, of Fairstead, Essex, England. It is also possible that the father of William Miles Metzner may have been simply indentured to Thomas, and that he named William after Thomas as an expression of love and respect to Thomas and Jemima.]

"In America was a British born officer, Frederick Metzner, who was educated in Germany and returned to join the British Army in Ireland before being posted to the Colonies. In his military career he rose from the rank of Cornet to Lt. Colonel, a rank he held at the time of his death in 1819. Metzner was an Officer of the 16th Light Dragoons in America in 1776. He was stationed in various places in New York, including Eastchester, Westchester and 20 Little Queen Street (now Cedar Street), New York, Kings County, NY. He returned to England in December of 1783. 
Bedell, Jemima (I039)
 
336 For descendants of Joseph and Mariam, see the file rdjer2jsph.

Resided at Hempstead, Long Island, NY [Ceylon H. Bedell, Bedell Family Notes, p 4]. Tredwell adds Joseph, spouse and children in his Additions and Corrections on the suggestion of Mr. Wardwell. He was most likely the Joseph Bedel who voted to send no deputies to the Provincial Congress 7 Nov 1755 [Revolutionary War Papers vol 1, p 185], and on 19 Jan 1776 apologized and swore that he had surrendered all his arms [Revolutionary War Papers vol 54, p 28].

Peters, Powells of the Hudson Valley sources and notes: 1) Walter Burke letter, 9 Oct 1980; 2) Harold Smith Papers, New York State Library.

If Joseph's son, John, was already living away from his father's home at the age of 18, this is the likely Joseph recorded in South Hempstead in the 1790 US Census with 1 male over age 16 and 4 females. In the 1800 US Census in Hempstead, this is the only Joseph who fits the age chronology of over 45 years of age with a wife over 45. There is also one male child in the household reported as under age 10. Perhaps this is a grandchild? 
Bedell, Joseph (I042)
 
337 For descendants of Mary and Thomas, see the file rdjer2mary.

Albright gives date of birth abt 1757. Mary is mentioned in her father's will dated 2 Jun 1787. She was also left all her Aunt Hannah Bedell's wearing apparel in her Aunt's will dated 6 Oct 1776.

Richard was lame and had only one eye. Richard is mentioned in his father's will dated 2 Jun 1787. Identification of this Richard in the records is not clear. A Richard is buried in the Hempstead Old Town Burial Ground.

1800 US Census, Hempstead, Queens County: 1 male under 10, 1 male 10-16, 1 male 26-45, 3 females under 10, 1 female 16-26, 1 female 26-45.

340 For descendants of Sylvester and Mary, see the file rdjer2sylv.

Hempstead Town Records [HTR], vol 6, p 357: On 25 Mar 1780, Silvester Beadle of Hempstead in Queens County sells for 260 pounds to Richard Smith 32 acres bounded on the west by the road that leads from Benjamin Lester's place to Samuel Pettit's place; on the south by Samuel Pettit's land; on the east by the land of Samuel Totten, deceased, that now belongs to Stephen Carman and Benjamin Lester. [Compilers note: this suggests that Sylvester moved to Greene County sometime after March of 1780 and before 1787.]

Resided at the South side of the turnpike, Four Corners, Greene County, NY [Ceylon H. Bedell, Bedell Family Notes, p. 2]. Moved to Coxsackie, NY [according to Tredwell, NYGB Record, vol 71, p 374], based on an undocumented communication to Tredwell by Gurney C. Gue. He was on the t Coxsackie Tax Roll in 1787. P.S.B.'s book gives his age at the time of his death as 65 years, which is consistent with the year of birth as 1745. Bedell Family Notes lists his birth year as 1711, which is not possible [Ceylon H. Bedell, Bedell Family Notes, pp 2, 8]. Therefore, we have used Peter S. Bedell's note, which was included in the manuscript, and other sources for the date. He was a farmer.

He is probably the Sylvester Bedell referred to as "cozin" in the will of Hannah Bedell, daughter of Jeremiah (3) [Daniel (2), Robert (1)].

Albright records from his mother's notes that the Sylvester Bedells were located on Bedell Hill that abutted the Houghtaling Patent and the Coeymans Patent. Later Bedell Hill was known as Hotaling Hill, and today it is known as Haas' Hill. Albright and his sister still own two wood lots there that they inherited from the Bedell family.

The Tax List of Coxsackie, 1787, shows Silvester Beedle located on Bedell Hill. The 1810 Census of New York shows Jeremiah, Jr. and William Beadle, and Aaron and Silvester Beagle all as living aroung Bedell Hill. Aaron is obviously Adam, and I believe Jeremiah, Jr. is the son of Thomas. Adam and William were Silvester's sons. Thomas moved to Stanton Hill, which was part of Albany County until 1811. Bedell Hill became part of New Baltimore in 1811. The closest community to Bedell Hill was Medway, Greene County, NY.

Peters, Powells of the Hudson Valley sources and notes: 1) Harold Smith Records, p 206; 2) Walter Burke letter, 9 Oct 1980; 3) New Baltimore Quaker Monthly Meeting, 1813 New York Yearly Meeting Records, Sylvester, deceased 2nd st [21st?] of 1st month 1811, age 65 years; 4) Harold Smith Papers, New York State Library; 5) on committee to inform Foster Powell of disownment from Coeymans Quaker Meeting, 23 Apr 1801.

Albright states that Sylvester's will, probated 20 Apr 1811, mentions his wife, Mary; sons Benjamin, William and Adam; daughter, Sarah; and grandchildren by John Armstrong, Mary, John, Sarah, Pebe, and Abigail. Executors of his will were Thomas Bedell and Sylvester's sons William and Benjamin. Witnesses to the will were Richard Bedell, John Smithe, and G. Smith.

Jacob is mentioned in his father's will dated 2 Jun 1787. The date of birth is calculated from the assumed date of death. The date of death is taken from the gravestone inscription in the Hempstead Old Town Burial Ground. However, there is no direct evidence to tie this Jacob directly to this grave.

349 From his obituary: Edgar "moved at the age of 15 with his parents and four brothers and five sisters to Michigan. He lived in the community 61 years. He was clerk of Kearney township for a number of years. In [President] Wilson's administration he was postmaster at Bellaire and was editor of the former Antrim County Record for 11 years. Mr. Bedell was a member of the Masonic Lodge for almost 39 years. Surviving are eight brothers and sisters, Mrs. Hannah Hatch of Oregon, Mrs. Ella Green of Forest Home Township, D. J. Bedell and George W. Bedell of Bellaire, Mrs. Ada Thomas of Birmingham, Jeremiah G. Bedell of Flint, Mrs. Sara Woodward of Benzonia and Mrs. Marion A. Thomas of Detroit.

History of Northern Michigan, p 1207: "Among the essentially representative and public-spirited citizens of Bellaire, MI, Edgar E. Bedell holds prestige as one whose interest in community affairs has ever been of the most insistent order and as a business man he has done a great deal to advance progress and development in Antrim County. Mr. Bedell was born in the town of Bernhards Bay, Oswego County, NY . . .. For a number of years [his] father was a ship builder for the Erie Canal Company and subsequently he became a captain on a packet line. In 1879 he removed with his family to Michigan, locating in the vicinity of Forest Home Township, in Antrim county, where he purchased a homestead right and where he engaged in agricultural pursuits. Here the father sill lives, the mother having died about 1901. Mr. and Mrs. George Bedell became the parents of ten children and of the number nine are still living.

"Edgar E. Bedell was reared to the age of fourteen years in his New York home and there he received his preliminary educational training. After his parents removal to Michigan he remained on the home farm until 1881, assisting his father in the work and management thereof. In that year, however, he decided to learn the painter's and decorator's trade and accordingly entered upon an apprenticeship under the direction of Frank Bedell, a cousin at Bellaire. He remained at Bellaire for two years, at the expiration of which he went to Ashland, Wisconsin, where he was engaged in the work of his trade for four and a half years. Painting did not exactly agree with him so he returned to Michigan, locating at Bellaire, where he worked in a hardware store for a time. He then entered the employ of Hemstreet & Hinman, grocers, and later he went to Escanaba, Michigan, where he became solicitor for the grocery department of a general store. Two years later, in 1904, he returned to Bellaire. He had erected a modern house before going to Escanaba, and thus again became a citizen of Antrim County. He engaged in painting and contracting and in that line of enterprise succeeded in building up an extensive patronage. In September, 1908, he established a job printing office but in January, 1911, he purchased his partner's interest.

"On the 29th of December, 1896, was solemnized the marriage of Mr. Bedell to Mrs. Emma Noteware, a widow who had one child by her former marriage, . . . Hayward E. Noteware, who is a painter and decorator by trade and who is now associated with Mr. Bedell in the painting business. No children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Bedell. . . . Mr. Bedell is a business man of unusual ability and he has carried to successful completion every undertaking to which he has given attention. He is thrifty and prosperous and in his civic attitude he is always on the alert to do all in his power to advance the best interest of this section of the state. In politics he endorses the cause of the Democratic party and in the spring of 1907 he was given proof of public appreciation in that he was then elected to the office of clerk of Kearney township. He was chosen as his own successor in this office in 1908, 1909, 1910 and 1911. In the last election he had no opposition and was elected by unanimous vote. In a fraternal way he is affiliated with the Masonic order, in which he has been secretary of the local lodge for the past eight years. Mr. Bedell is a man of fine intellect and broad learning and he is kindly and charitable in the various walks of life."
