Madison -- Mrs. Anna R. Shaver, 90, died Wednesday at her home. She was a native of Oneida, daughter of Isaac and Hanner De Groat Griffin. She married Isaac Burgdoff in 1873. He died many years ago. She later was married to Charles Shaver in 1887.

Shaver survives with five daughters, Mrs. John Baker, Clockville; Mrs Charles Colough, Cazenovia; Mrs. Le Roy Holman, Michigan; Mrs. Grace Sabin, Binghamton; Mrs. Isaac Barriger of Oneida; two sons, Orley Burgdoff, Oneida; George Burgdoff, Utica, and two sisters, Mrs. May Mott, Pennsylvania, and Mrs. Lillian Bennett, Oneida.

She was a member of the Madison Methodist church. Funeral services will be held in Madison Methodist church at 2 p.m. Saturday and burial will be in Madison cemetery.
[Paper Unknown - Date Unknown] 
GRIFFIN, Anna Rebecca (I12899)
8816 When did she die? I have found dates that range from 1970, 1973 and 2002.

I have rejected the 1970 date because the only Edith M. HILL (1913-1970) I found was married to Walter P. HILL (1885-1944).

I have rejected the 1973 date because the birth date was in 1910.

The 2002 date is very strange. I know from her Social Security application that she was born on January 7, 1914 in Ann Arbor, Michigan and that she died on October 13, 2002. Her Social number was 363-62-8463. The Social Security Death Index for SocialSecurity number 363-62-8463 has her date of birth as January 12, 1914, her date of death as October 13, 2002 and her last residence Riverton, Sangamon, Illinois. Bingo, right? No, her date of birth is wrong. I found an obituary for Edith M. HILL in the"The State Journal-Register" (Springfield, IL) (October 15, 2002) that proves that 2012 date is for Edith M. Shockey HILL. She was born January 12, 1914 the daughter of James Wesley and Dovie Dixon SHOCKEY. She died October 13, 2002 in Springfield, Illinois. After more digging I found a Social Security application for Edith M. SHOCKEY, she was born January 12, 1914 in Springfield, Illinois. Her Social number was 339-60-9621.

I think there was either a transcription error or a Social Security Administration error.

8835 Willard W. Morgan, who owns three hundred and twenty acres of fine land on sections 16 and 21, Prussia township, is one of the substantial men ofhis locality and is well and favorably known throughout Adair county. He was born in Nodaway county, Missouri, August 6, 1867, and is a son ofWilliam W. and Jane A. (Pierce) Morgan, an account of whose lives appears in the sketch of W. H. Morgan. Our subject, who was reared and educatedin this county, as he was but a small child when the family removed here, remained under the parental roof until he was of age and then began hisindependent business career, renting land, which he operated for six and a half years. At the end of that time he purchased one hundred and sixtyacres on section 16, Prussia township, and began the improvement of his place at once. Later he bought additional land and now owns three hundredand twenty acres on sections 16 and 21, to the cultivation of which he devotes his time. He has resided upon his farm for eighteen years with theexception of two years, which he spent in Oskaloosa, Iowa, where he engaged in the coal business and where he was also connected with a brickfactory. He follows up-to-date methods in farming and his well directed efforts yield him a handsome income annually. In addition to generalfarming he carries on stock-raising and feeds about two carloads of cattle per year. He is also a stockholder in the Odd Fellows building atFontanelle.

Mr. Morgan was married on the 20th of October, 1890, to Miss Ida A. Rice, a daughter of Wilbur and Lavilla (Scott) Rice, natives of Pennsylvania,who came to Adair county, Iowa, in 1899 from Monroe, this state. ... Mr. and Mrs. Morgan are the parents of nine children, namely: Fred, who wasborn July 10, 1891, Grace, born February 4, 1894, and who is now the wife of Charles Rhodes, of Fontanelle; Goldie, born December 6, 1895, who gaveher hand in marriage to William Haughenberry, a farmer of Prussia township; Elsie, born December 4, 1897; Elmer, September 5, 1900; Lyman, September22, 1903; Violet, February 5, 1907; and Irene and Inez, twins, November 14, 1910.

Hehas also been a school director and takes a great deal of interest in the welfare of the public schools. Hisreligious faith is that of theMethodist church and fraternally he belongs to the Odd Fellows lodge at Fontanelle.

MORGAN, Willard Webster (I29443)
8836 William A. Wells, who resided on section 33, town of Sunfield, was one of the wealthiest farmers in Eaton County, Michigan. He was born inMarcellus, Onondaga County, New York on January 1, 1813, and was the son of Augustus and Deborah (Converse) Wells, natives of Connecticut. Hisbrothers and sisters were Orrin M., Priscilla, Maria, Russell B. and James R. Wells.

William A. Wells was reared under the paternal roof in Onondaga County, New York, and received only a limited education. He was thrown upon his ownresources at an early date in his existence and by working by the month and year provided for his support.He subsequently learned the blacksmithtrade, which he followed for a time. Acting on the advice of Horace Greeley, he came west in 1840, making the journey from New York to Detroit bywater, and from there across the country with an ox-team. In Eaton County, he made a claim of one hundred and twenty acres of land, settlingthereon in the spring of 1841. There was no clearing within a mile and a half of his place and no road near it, but all was in a primitivecondition, untouched by the hand of man. Hisfirst house was a shanty, 12 x 15 feet, built of logs, and the only board in the whole structure wasthat forming the door. With a capital of $30 he began life on the Western frontier and his lot was not exempt from the hardships and trials, whichbeset the path of the pioneer. After seven years a substantial log home replaced his cabin. As time passed, acre after acre of land was placedunder the plow until as the result of his own labors, one hundred and sixty acres of richly cultivated land pay tributeto the care and cultivationhe bestows upon them, while an additional thirty-five acres was also comprised within the boundaries of his farm. His progressive and enterprisingspirit had manifested itself throughout all his work. He and his brother, OrrinM., purchased the first threshing machine brought to the town ofSunfield and also brought the first mower and reaper, and the first fanning mill and windmill.

On the 20th of December 1841, Mr. Wells wedded Miss Mary Chatfield, also of Eaton County, who was born in Oneida County, New York, October 26, 1822.Her parents, Abram and Sarah (Bixby) Chatfield, came to Eaton County in the autumn of 1837, and located inSunfield, where they died, both at theage of sixty-six years. Mrs. Wells was one of the first white women who came to Sunfield Township and her home had been in Eaton County sinceJanuary 1, 1839. She was in every way worthy of the high esteem in which she was held. Her hospitable home showed marks of her care and cultureand the welcome she extended to the many friends of the family made the Wells' home a favorite resort to the people of the community. Six childrenwere born to William and Mary Wells: John, Palmer H., Ellen M., Eva, Frederick I., and William R.

To say that Mr. Wells had succeeded in business hardly expresses the excellent prosperity, which had crowned his efforts, and to his own labors maybe accredited all that he had made. Since coming to Eaton County he never purchased a bushel of grain or potatoes except for seed; had never paid adollar's interest on borrowed money, did not owe a dollar; nor was he under obligations to any man. A wealthy citizen, his property has beenacquired through the legitimate channels of business and in no way forfeitedthe confidence of his fellow townsmen in his business integrity. Inpolitics he was first a Whig and later supported the Republican Party. He was never connected with any religious denomination or secret organizations.

William died May 2, 1903 at the age of 90 years and Mary died March 21, 1897 at the age of 75 years, both are resting at the Freemire Cemetery,Sunfield Township, Eaton County, Michigan.
[The Past & Present of Eaton County, MI
pp. 162- 164, Michigan historical publishing association, Lansing, Mich

William A. Wells was born January 1st, 1813, in Onondaga County in the State of New York, where he resided until 1840 when he removed to Michiganand located the farm upon which he lived until the time of his death the 2nd of May 1903.

December 20, 1841, Mr. Wells was united in marriage to Miss Mary Chatfield. Of this union there were born four sons and two daughters of whom threesons and the two daughters survive him.

Nothing that can be said of Mr. Wells can either add to or detract from the high estimation in which he was held by all who knew him. He was one ofthe few of whom it can truly be said that those who knew him best esteemed him most.

Mr. Wells led a quiet, undemonstrative life filled with good deeds and kindly acts performed without ostentation. He was par-excellence, the poorman's friend. Whatever property he had accumulated was the product of industry and frugality. He never tookadvantage of another's necessity thathe might thereby enrich himself.

We can say nothing higher in praise of his memory then to say: He was a true husband, a loving father, a kind neighbor and an honest and usefulcitizen. If greatness is to take the common things of life and walk truly among them, Mr. Wells was great.

The family wish to extend their thanks to those who so kindly aided them in their sad bereavement, especially the choir from Vermontville whofurnished such fine music.
