101 Aaron Porter Cleveland was reared on the Oblong, now Amenia, New York.

His descendants state that he was a colnel or Lt. Col. in the American army in the Revolution and was wounded but never pensioned.

He left New York state quite young and settled first at Sharon Meeting House, now Delaware City, New Castle, Delaware and that his son, Horatio J.,was born near Harper's Ferry while he was moving to what is now Deposit, Delaware (Broome?) New York.

Either in March 1791 or March 1792, he mysteriously disappeared. According to varying traditions he "went to Deposit village to get a wheel" or"had finished a large building, was paid in Continental money and went to the bank to get it cashed, and that as the last ever heard of him,supposed he was murdered for his money". A later tradition states that he "enlisted and went to Gibralter." Another that "he was a soldier, takenprisoner, and killed," or "went to sea".

115 According to a document found among the effects of May (Rosecrans) Ashley who was the youngest child in the William H. Rosecrans family.

The author was Orin L. Moore of Redding , CA, a long-time friend of Myrtle's. Mr. Moore described the document in a Sept. 20, 1985 letter writtento May Ashley concerning Myrtle's death: "Also am enclosing a copy of something I wrote up to be read at her 100th birthday party where she wasQueen for a day. I probably goofed in my facts here and there, but tried to put it down just as she had mentioned these things at various times."

Transcribed July 13, 1999 by Jerome L. Ashley, son of Della May Ashley.

MYRTLE A. BINGHAM

Myrtle was born June 22nd, 1885 at Eldora, Hardin County, Iowa to William Henry and Jennie Rosecrans who were both natives of Iowa. She was next tothe eldest of 8 children with 2 sisters and 5 brothers. At the age of 3 her parents moved from Iowa by covered wagon to Lexington, Nebraska andlater to Elwood, Gosper County, Nebraska where they settled permanently.

In her early years Myrtle was raised in what was known as a "sod" house. People now use wood products, bricks or stone to build their homes, but theearly day pioneers necessarily used what was available which was the open prairie to cover their basic needs including food and shelter. A woodenfloor was considered to be a luxury at that time. However, these "sod" houses were remarkably comfortable much like the adobe shelters built by theSpanish in early California.

Myrtle recalls when she was young that her father often joined with his neighbors to hunt wolves in order to try to protect their livestock. Whilethis is difficult to imagine in this day and age, wolves were a major problem affecting their food supplies and Myrtle was warned not to stray farfrom the house because of this ever-present danger.

Later in life Myrtle left home when she married a railroad conductor, Ed Roberts, moving to Harvey, North Dakota where they had 6 children, 4 boysand 2 girls of whom only 2 are still living. Her last son Glen who lives in New Jersey is in poor health andthe surviving daughter takes care ofher invalid husband so neither are able to attend this occasion. During the depression, Myrtle moved to Stockton, Calif. with her youngest threechildren to support by herself. After World War 2 she married James Bingham, a construction worker. They purchased a trailer court in Marysvillewhich they operated for many years until her husband passed away.

During her lifetime, Myrtle has seen the advent of electric lights, telephones, radio, Television, automobiles, airplanes and space rockets as wellas 5 wars. Living through an era of hard times and much hardship Myrtle still retains a lively sense of humor as well as an unwavering faith in Godand her church. She has been a member of the 7th Day Adventist church most of her life, being
baptized by pastor Liebelt's father in the Platte river many years ago.

The writer visited her former home in Nebraska approximately 20 years ago. It immediately brought to mind the site of "Tara" as described inMargaret Mitchell's classic epic "Gone with the Wind." All that remained was a large fireplace and many concrete walkways still in good conditionadjoining the house. The large 2-story frame house with its portico upheld by colonnades was gone, but there were yet many tall trees, the remnantsof a well-cared for yard and a running stream of water encircling the houseon 3 sides. Myrtle tells me this was called Plum creek and flowed theyear around.

It was not difficult to imagine the house still standing with children in their old-fashioned clothes running and playing in the yard. Now allthese people are gone with the exception of Myrtle, and there is only an all-pervading silence over this once beautiful home site to mark thepassing of a nearly forgotten era of our history.
