SILAS W. EGLIN #1.8

Nov 2005

        PARENTS
John Eglin and Catherine Dods
        BORN
1806 no baptismal records yet found. It appears that his parents were no longer members of the Dutch Reform Church when he was born and he was baptized in a different religion (maybe Methodist)
He was referred to as Uncle Silas born 1806. (Aber and King in the"History of Hamilton County" page 360 says he was born 1804)
        MARRIED
Betsey Spears who died 29 February 1872 in her 62nd year Age 60 in 1870 Town of Benson Hamilton County census likely born Vermont. Married maybe 1827/8 . A Timothy Spear is listed in the 1820 census of Town of Hope Hamilton County N.Y. and is no doubt her father.(not found 1830 or 1840 census in Hope)
        DIED
Likely 5 November 1891 age 85 years 9 months and 25 days more than likely in the Town of Benson
        BURIED
Both Silas and Betsey are buried in Town of Benson Cemetery # 9 located on the North Road approximately 500 feet north of Hamilton County Road #6 It was also known as the Upper Benson Cemetery.
        CHILDREN

#2.8.1 * Elizabeth Eglin born 1828

#2.8.2 *Mary Jane Eglin born May 1833.

#2.8.3 * William T. Eglin born 19 February 1837

        It is not known what the initial W. stood for in Silas' name (altho the 1860 census lists "H." as his middle initial). His sister Nancy named one of her children Silas Wood Avery and as many of her children were named after members of her family one might surmise that the name "Wood" may have had a family background (Perhaps the maiden surname of John Eglin's mother). Although this avenue has been pursued by David Avery of Ancaster Ontario, an Eglin descendant, nothing has been found.
        Silas was listed in the 1830 census of Town of Hope, Hamilton County (Benson was not formed from Hope until April 1860) as Silas "Eglon" as one male between years of age, one female between years of age and one female child between years.
        Silas was a resident of Albany County in 1832 when his father John transferred title to him of a portion of Lot 5 of Great Lot 8 of the Glen, Beecher and Lansing in the Town of Mayfield. For the property Silas was to provide food, clothing, adequate shelter for John and Catherine for the rest of their lives or in the alternative pay them eight dollars a month.
        Aber and King in their "History of Hamilton County" page 360 refers to Silas W. born 1804 as a son of Peter Eglin, while actually Silas was a brother of Peter's.
        Silas was in the Town of Broadalbin, Fulton County for the 1840 census (which may have included a portion of the Town of Mayfield) one male between 30 and 40 years old (Silas) one female between 30 and 40 (Betsey), 2 females, one between 5 and 10 years old (Mary Jane) and one between 10 and 15 years old (Elizabeth and one male under 5 (William) Also in the family were a male between 70 and 80 and a female between 60 and 70. Were these Silas parents John and Catharine Eglin ? Could be!
        They were still living and somewhere in the area and not found in any other census (Betsy's parents have not been found in the area after 1820)

        Silas was listed the the Town of Mayfield, Fulton County in the 1850 census as Silas "England" #484 age 44 , farmer , wife Betsy age 40. Children Elizabeth age 20 Mary J age 17 and William age 13.
        He was likely living in the portion of Mayfield that became part of the Town of Benson when Benson was created from the Town of Hope in 1850.
        Silas was involved in a number of land transactions in Hamilton County over the years.
        In Aber and King's history of Hamilton County on page 358, Silas is shown living on the south side of present Hamilton County Road 6 just a short distance west of present location of North Street, likely about Lot 6 of the Benson Tract which was once owned by his grandfather Bartholemeus Dods. In as much as he was buried in the North Street Cemetery, he must have lived nearby.
        The 1860 census of the Town of Benson lists, family #564, Silas H Eglin, age 54, farmer, born New York, Benson Post office, with real estate worth $1800 and personal property worth $725, wife Betsy 50, child Mary Jane age 27. He was living next to his brother in law .Hiram Wells (listed as Horace) and his wife Mary (Eglin). Also living with the Wells family was Silas' brother, Thomas Eglin
        Silas Eglin's property is show on a 1861 map of the Town of Benson on page 358 in the Aber and King, history of Hamilton County. His is the next farm west of Hiram Wells on the main east- west road through Benson (Now Hamilton County Road 6) and about 40% of the way from the Town of Bleecker, Fulton County easterly toward the Town of Hope (see jpg of map in Eglin Gravestone Folder).
        In the 1870 census of the Town of Benson, Silas is listed as a farmer, age 64, born New York with wife Betsy age 60, born Vermont, children Elizabeth Brownell and Jane Eglin (see above) and grandchildren Eurette (written as Enrilla) and William. With them lived Samuel Warner age 30 and his wife Nancy age 30 and 3 Warner children.
        Samuel Warner was described as a farmer with real estate worth $1000 and personal property worth $300. (No property listing for Silas)
        Relationship between the Warners and Eglins if any, is unknown . In April 1875 Silas sold his property to his son, William T. Eglin, 90 acres in Lot 7 of the Subdivision of Great Lot 8 in the Glen, Bleecker and Lansing Tract in the Town of Benson. (Hamilton County Land book Book 16 page 238),(see William T. Eglin) (He may have lived on this property in 1861.)
        The 1880 Federal census of the Town of Benson Hamilton County lists Silas Eglin , age 70, widower living with his daughter Mary J. Graydon age 47 and her husband Henry J. Graydon age 60, a farmer.
        Aber and King notes page 373 that a mining claim was filed on Silas Eglin's land in September of 1880 stating there was gold on the property. Although several mining companies were formed nothing seems to have come out of that report.

        Grace E Woodrick (Dowler) was postmaster following William T. Eglin (who was appointed on 1 August 1871) at Benson Center from July 1884 until she died in December 1890 . Benson Center had a population of 39 in 1890! Grace was very likely the Grace E. Bowler listed in the 1880 census of the Town of Hope, who was a boarder at William Eglin's residence.
        She died age 32, on 13 December 1890 in St Luke's hospital, Utica New York of Bright's disease and buried Upper Benson Cemetery. Her obit noted that she was the daughter of I.G. Woodrick of 19 Second Street Gloversville
        The 1892 State census of Town of Benson Part #1, lists William age 55, farmer and his daughter Bessie age 17 (only).
        Louisa Peck was born 12 September 1859 (Julie Dorman) and was living in June 1917 but did not seem to be listed in the 1892 New York State census of the Town of Benson so William and Louise must have married after the 1892 census was taken. Julie Dorman advises that Louisa 's parents were Charles H Peck and Anna Manderville (Anna was buried in Prospect Hill cemetery at Northville) Louisa had a child)(ren) from a previous marriage one of whom Maude Godfrey. Maude married an U./K Dell, and had a son Al Dell (Ref Julie Dorman)

        Aber and King's History of Hamilton County gives the following briefs,
        Page #369 William J. Eglin (likely meant to be William T. as no William J. has been found to date), appointed overseer of Road District #2 in the Town of Benson shortly after its formation in 1860.
        Page #373 William T. Eglin was appointed postmaster at Benson Center when it was reopened on 1 August 1871. He was succeeded by his daughter Alice T. Eglin on 13 December 1880 who was succeeded on 8 July 1884 by Grace Eglin (very likely William T's second wife).
        Page #381 William T. Eglin, Justice of the Peace left Town in 1917 (age about 80 likely to live with one of his children) On page 358 of Aber and King's History of Hamilton County "a" Wm. Eglin is shown as a resident at about this location (Lot 72). history of Hamilton County Page 373 states that from 1883 when a "William Eglin" was 20 years old and for the next 30 years he was a mail carrier on the Northville, Benson Route (July 1913).

        Julie Dorman, a descendant of William's through his daughter Edna says this William was a stage coach driver) It was noted in the obit of his son William Eglin in March1901 that this William lived in Benson and carried the mail between Northville and Benson.
        Aber and King are slightly mixed on his facts as William would have been over 40 years old in 1880 and 75 by 1913 ( I supposed he could still have been driving)

        As William and members of the family were buried at Upper Benson, it must be assumed that William lived on or near Lot #72.
        In June 1917 William T. and wife Louisa V. Eglin sold (Book # 52 page 220) for $1, 70 acres in Lot 72 of the Benson Tract in the Town of Benson to his son Emmett S. Eglin (a mile north of Benson Center at intersection of Fulton County Road 125 and Hamilton County Road 6).
        The 1920 census lists William Eglin, age 83 living in Gloversville, Fulton County with his daughter Edna and her husband Howard Smith and their family.
        Louisa Eglin was listed as married, a house servant, age 59 in household #31 of Johnstown City Fulton County with head, Joel illegible, Age 52. 1859.
