AND OTHERS Link: 544036 Year: 1826 Description: Report on the petition of, to build a bridge across theSchoodiac (sic) River from Calais to Saint Stephens Type: GY Access #:41-10 ====================================== Jones DYER Jr. and Lydia KNIGHT had, per the Annals of Calais (p. 21), atotal of 15 children [Kate Douglas Wiggin, their granddaughter, says14]. It seems curious that the first son was named Stephen, and thesecond son was given his father's name. Possibly Stephen was the firstname of Hannah (HARRINGTON) DYER's father? 'His first home was where theAlms House now [1875] stands; his second, on Main Street, near the footof Church Avenue. Being a man of energy and decided ability, he took anactive part in all public affairs, and was for many years the wealthiestman in town' (Annals, p. 21). He was an Attorney at Law, a 'gentleman',and appears to have owned a number of merchant ships over the years -- occupations which made him aconsiderable amount of money. Jones DYER Jr. was successful at Calais, as he had been at Machias,and became a prominent member of society (as pioneer founders often are)who was regularly elected to town offices. At Calais first town meeting,held 31 JUL 1809, he was elected one of the town's two constables(Annals, p. 44), and on 2 APR 1810 he was elected to the school committee(Ibid., p. 47). On 12 JAN 1811 Jones DYER Jr. was chosen as one of threeas a Committee to petition the Legislature to grant to the town of Calaisthe public lands reserved in said town. The financial relief thussought, if obtained, would have been very small and temporary; therequest therefore was probably not granted (Ibid., p. 49). At theCalais town meeting of 6 APR 1812, Jones Jr. was again elected to theschool committee (Ibid., p. 52) as well as the positions of Treasurer ofCalais and selectmen, both offices he was re-elected to at the meetingon 5 APR 1813. The church also benefited from Jones Jr.'s attentions, and the landand the avenue leading to the large, handsome and commodiousCongregational meeting house erected about 1826 'were given in equalshares by Dea. Samuel KELLEY and Jones DYER Esq' (Annals, p. 105), thedeed being dated 9 SEP 1826 (Ibid., pp. 104-5). In 1828 a Dyer's Hall isnoted at Calais (Ibid., p. 149) as being owned by Jones DYER, Esq., andit was there in the same year that the Ladies Benevolent Society wasformed (Ibid., p. 173). The 1810 Calais census shows Jones Jr. (b. 1765-84), his wife (b.1784-94), and children: one boy born 1800-10 [Edward S.], and two girlsborn 1800-10. Other children are shown: one, a girl born 1794-1800, isprobably one of the two daughters of James DYER who were born between1790 and 1800; the other, a girl born 1784-94, may be another of JamesDYERs daughters, one born 1784-90. The family also appears in the 1810Calais census wherein Jones is shown to be born before 1764 as is hiswife, and living with them is one boy born 1784-94 (likely Nathan) andone girl born 1784-94. The 1820 Calais census gives Jones Dyer (not shown as Jr. be[cause hisfather apparently had died and was no longer listed) born before 1775, awoman born pre-1775 [probably his mother, Lydia (Knight) Dyer, in lightof Kate Douglas Wiggin's comments below ], and children: one son born1793-1804, with no daughters listed. This census, with regard to thisfamily, appears extremely incomplete. Many children, later listed in the1830 census, are missed in this census. The 1830 Calais census lists Jones Dyer (b. 1770-80), his wife (b.1780-90), and children: one boy born 1790-1800, two boys born 1800-10, three boysborn 1810-15, one boy born 1820-25, two girls born 1800-10, two girlsborn 1810-15, two girls born 1815-20, one girl born 1820-25, and threegirls born 1825-30. Also living with the family was a woman who was between 90 and 100 yearsold (b. 1730-40) who may have been a relation of Jones's wife but in anyevent had come to live with them since the 1820 census. One of the abovepersons was an alien, and not naturalized, but which is unknown.Although Jones Jr.'s death date is given as 1860, there is curiously nosign of him or his family in the Calais censuses of 1840 or later. 1850 U.S. Census, PA, Philadelphia, Walnut ward (LDS film #444,781),p445; on 14 Sept 1850, house 218, family 287 was Jones Dyer, age 74,white, no profession, value of real estate $5000, b: Maine; in same housewas Hermancis Caimill (spelling of both names uncertain), female, age 25,b: Penn. 1850 US Census, Calais Maine - Jones Dyer does NOT appear with Lydia(62), Helen (19), and Josephine (16). Laws & Resolves of Maine Vol IV 1840-41 Chapter 102 Resolve in favor of Jones Dyer Resolved, That the Treasurerof the State be and hereby is authorized to cancel the stock of thisState, or any part thereof, now held by Jones Dyer, and to issue newStock, one fourth to be dated March the 1st, one fourth, Sept. 1st, onefourth, Nov. 1st , 1840 and the other fourth Jan 1st 1841, and to makethe same, with the interest thereon, payable at the Treasury. The termsof the certificates to be the same as to interest, as the certificatescancelled. [Approved October 21, 1840] Unless there was another Jones Dyer in Calais about 1845, then he musthave remarried After the death of his first wife as a Mrs. Sylvia Dyerlisted as the wife of Jones Dyer was on the membership list of the FirstCongregational Church of Calais, ME, on 11 MAY 1845. The following is drawn from My Garden of Memory (1923), written by JonesJr.'s granddaughter, Kate Douglas WIGGIN (1856-1923): 'A man of great individuality and marked business ability was JonesDyer, Gentleman, who conducted his fortunes so successfully that he was able to retire frombusiness at forty years [ca. 1815] and thereafter to wander from place toplace, seeking rest for the sole of his foot, the which, apparently, henever found.' Helen E. Dyer was the 'last but one of the fourteen budson the family tree' and Kate Douglas Wiggin further described hergrandfather as 'an unusually silent and reserved person, and as a furiousand omnivorous reader, his 'Websterian' head -- for so it was alwaysdescribed -- constantly bent over books and papers.' 'In spite of his apparently adequate family, my grandfather took into hishome and cared for two orphan relatives [daughters of his brother, James?-- see Calais census of 1810 above], and, as his aged father and motherwere also under his roof [post-1810], it may well be imagined that mysplendid and heroic maternal grandmother [Lydia (Knight) Dyer] was seldomat a loss for occupation. To his keen business sense, clear reasoning power, and executive ability,Jones Dyer, Gentleman, added what must have been rare in a man brought upon the outermost edge of things, a distinct sense of the artistic andunusual and the instincts of a collector. Whatever he bought for hisfamily was valuable and beautiful, although his restless removals fromplace to place often scattered tot he winds his various treasures. While living in New Haven,Connecticut, at one time, were my uncle [brother of Jones: James, Nathan or Stephen?] was studying law at Yale, grandfather bought from an old French emigré ahouse and its contents which my mother described as the most interestingand beautiful of all that the family had occupied up to that time'(Ibid., pp. xviii-xix). Excerpts from Jones's daughters letters, published by Kate DouglasWiggin, give a vivid portrait of the comings and goings: EMILY -- 'My trunk is packed and I am waiting for father's sloop, theChallenge, to take me to Philadelphia.' JOANNA -- 'When father's ship, the Pilgrim, comes back, he promises thatI may go to New Haven to take further music lessons.' HARRIET [already married, thus post-1850?] -- 'I could go to Boston onone of his ships and make you a little visit in Charlestown.' 'The family lived about the time of these letters in a old-fashionedmansion on Town Hill [Calais, Maine], a residence formerly owned by theHonorable Edward Everett, President of Harvard, and, as there were eightdaughters growing up under its roof, each one, according totradition,something of a belle and a beauty, it may well be imaginedthat, as a misanthropic young uncle [one of Jones's sons, thus KateDouglas Wiggin's uncle?] once said, 'the Hill was black with beaux dayand night!'' (Ibid, p. xx). In fact, 'one of [Helen E. Dyer's] rarememory-pictures was of her elder sister, Sophia, sitting (perhaps notaccidentally!) under the parlor chandelier, its full light shining on herwavy auburn hair, while a bevy of gallants around her rivaled one anotherin efforts to disentangle the 'kinks' in a long, slender gold chain shealways wore about her neck' (Ibid, p. x). That Jones Jr. made and exhausted his fortune seems certain by tworeferences made by Kate Douglas Wiggin: 'if he had not, with truly[Theodore] Rooseveltian fervor, furnished fourteen children asheirs-in-law, or if he had not retired from business at forty, his lessacquisitive grandchildren [herself for one?] might have been quite well-to-do ....' (Ibid., p. 81). And,again, Jones Jr.'s retirement 'was perhaps a noble reaction from thetyranny of trade, though had he wrestled with financial problems a fewyears longer he might, with his talents, have been able to endow his lesssuccessful descendants with abundant fortunes' (Ibid., first page of Chapter XX IV). From this itwould appear that there may have been some resentment within the familythat Jones Jr. spent the money he had worked so hard to earn! Personal Knowledge of JWP. Joseph W.

Kate WIGGIN, however, says (Garden, p. xviii) that he was 'ofgallant little Wales' implying that he was a Welshman by actual birth.He settled, at least temporarily, in Scarborough, MA (now in ME),sometime in the early 1760s. [Between about 1763 and 1765, Jones DYERwent to Machias, ME, in a vessel and, having survived a shipwreck alongthe way, reached shore in a canoe. He became one of the original granteesof Machias, of whom there were fifteen or sixteen.] Kirk McColl, Minister. McColl Methodist Church, St. Stephen,NB - BaptismRecords 1794-1848. PANB Microfilm.

[Abstracts of deeds fromLincoln Co. records at Wiscasset, 1771-1778][Message from Aurie W.Morrison to JWP 13 Nov 1996;] During the American Revolution, Jones is variously reported to haveserved as a sergeant and as a corporal. He served as a corporal in Capt.Reuben DYER's company between his enlistment on 29 JUL 1777 and hisdischarge on 06 DEC 1777, a period of four months seven days, travelincluded. This enlistment was for an expedition against St. John's, NovaScotia, and it continued in service at and in defense of Machias. Acertificate, dated 12 DEC 1777 at Machias and signed by Capt. ReubenDYER**, states that Capt. Stephen SMITH, muster master for LincolnCounty, paid Jones DYER the bounty allowed him for engaging to serve onthe expedition against St. Johns. At the same time, Jones served as a sergeant in Capt. StephenSMITH's company (Col. Benjamin FOSTER's Lincoln County regiment) for an18-day period while British ships lay in the harbor at Machias, and hewas discharged on 10 OCT 1777 when the danger had passed. That Sgt.Jones DYER and Corporal Jones DYER are the same person seems obvious fromthe duplication of commanding officers and geographical locations, not tomention that the name Jones DYER is quite uncommon (only one beingknown). This latter was the same episode which led to Asa DYER (mainP396; 1739-1831) spending 25 days with Capt. Daniel SULLIVAN's company(Col. Benjamin FOSTER's regiment -- the same regiment that Jones DYER wasserving in) which was called out three times for service in the defenseof Machias. Asa was discharged from this service on 07 OCT 1777. The next revolutionary episode in Jones DYER's life was probably themost momentous one for him. During the summer of 1778, Jones wasoperating under John ALLAN (1746-1805), a Scotsman and rebel sympathizerfrom Cumberland County, Nova Scotia, and had been made a captain. Allan,who had been appointed Continental Agent and 'Commander in Chief ofIndians, Eastern Department' in 1777 by the colonial forces, was high onthe British priority list for capture, and the British had placed a `100reward on his head. ALLAN was on an expedition to Passamaquoddy Bay (atthe headwaters of the Schoodic or St. Croix River -- both names appliedto the same river) to keep the trade between the Indians and the Britishsuppressed, and the British decided to lay a trap for ALLAN and thus endhis successful efforts to stop the Indians from allying themselves withthe redcoats. A British sloop from Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Howe(with a compliment of seventy men), posing as a trading vessel fromBermuda looking for a cargo of lumber, attempted to lure ALLAN aboard.Too wary to go himself, Allan sent Capt. Jones DYER and five others inhis stead and they were promptly, but temporarily, captured. How longJones DYER remained in British custody is not known, but it was probablynot for long. This, then, was Jones DYER's first experience with thePassamaquoddy region, an area of much significance later in his life. Jones served two more periods with the colonial forces. One was fora three-day service between 04 DEC 1778 and 04 JAN 1779 [?] again withCapt. Stephen SMITHs company of Col. Benjamin FOSTERs Lincoln Countyregiment at Machias. Asa Dyer was also serving during this period in thedefense of Machias, and his tour was some 5 months 16 days as 1st Lt. inCapt. Thomas ROBBINS's company from 17 JUN 1778 to 01 DEC 1778. Asa DYERimmediately reenlisted on 01 DEC 1778 and is listed on a payroll (dated01 JUN 1779) made up for service of persons engaged for the defense ofMachias, and others employed in the Indian business under Col. John ALLANfor ten days service. Jones DYER's last noted efforts on behalf of theAmerican cause was his participation in a detachment of the 6th LincolnCounty Regiment under Lt. John SCOTT, which spent ten days at Machias,serving from 31 AUG 1779 to 20 NOV 1779 [?]. With the successful end of the American Revolution, Jones settleddown at Machias but it was not long before he was once again infectedwith 'pioneer fever'. Maybe Machias had become too civilized for him,and he remembered the Passamaquoddy area that he had visited soeventfully in 1778. Possibly accompanied by his brother, James (P10; b.pre-1769), Jones set out in an Indian canoe along the coastline andarrived at the mouth of the Scoodic River where he pitched his tent a fewdays later. According to his grandson, Abner HILL (son of Thomas HILL,who lived to the age of 98), 'when he came herre ... not a tree had beencut in the broken forest of green wood which stood on every hand'. Jones soon returned to Machias and brought his family (composed ofhis wife, Hannah HARRINGTON, whom he had married about 1770, and at leastsons Stephen [P9; b. 1770/75] and Jones, Jr. [P7; b. 1774/5]) to thenew homestead. This made Jones DYER and his brother James the firstpermanent residents at Calais -- Daniel HILL was the first settler atCalais, having arrived (as was established by the courts later) on 01 JAN1784, but he did not stay. The DYER family apparently came by water,rather than overland, and landed at a point on the Robbinston Road, twomiles below the later site of the village, where a small stream flowsinto the main river. At this spot, Jones DYER built the first frame house in Calais in 1785, with lumber obtained fromJeremiah FROSTs mill across and up the river at St. Stephen, Nova Scotia(now New Brunswick) -- this being the only mill on the river at thattime. This land, some two miles below what is now Calais, was still inthe hands of a descendant of Jones DYER at least as late as 1866, thoughthe old house had apparently been replaced by one built in 1829 (PikesDiary, p. 49). The 1790 census of Passamaquoddy Township No. 5 (Calais)showed the family to include two males under the age of sixteen (Jamesand Nathan), three males sixteen and older (Jones Sr., Stephen and JonesJr.), and three females (his wife and two daughters). Which one of his daughters (whose names are not yet known) was bornafter this census is also not known. The 1790 Calais census also showshis brother James Dyer as a head of household. The 1800 census of Calais shows that both Jones and his wife wereborn before 1755. His children were aged as follows: two boys and onegirl were born between 1790 and 1800, one girl was born between 1774-84,and two girls were born between 1755-74. Since Stephen Dyer had alreadymarried by 1800, that leaves Jones DYER Jr. (b. 1774/75) and Nathan (b.ca. 1790) unaccounted for, and an extra male born 1790-1800 on hand (aworker?). The girls are difficult to explain, except to point out thatJones wife, Hannah, seems to have been born about 1755. The same censusshows Jones Jr. (b. 1774-84) counted separately from his family, whichindicates that by the age of 24 he had a place of his own. ======================================================= From -- Steve Robbins 915 Green Valley Drive Toccoa, Georgia 30577 srobbins@@toccoafalls.edu 1) The following items are from the papers of Col.

Birth*Justin Dyer was born on 15 July 1829 in Jefferson, Schoharie County, New York; birth date not documented. The year 1829 used here is given by MinnieCohen gravestone reading, but this could be a misreading due to the age of the stone and it is the year 1827, given by the 'Bouton Papers', that is correct. However 1827 would conflict with birth date of Justin's sister, Adeline. Justin is confirmed to be the father of Georgia Dyer in Georgia's death certificate. Justin is listed in the 'Gazetteer and Business Directory of Schoharie County, N.Y. for 1872-3' as farmer and as the 'inspector of elections'.The names of Justin's two children, Stella and Milton, have been taken from the following note to me from Florence (Gallup) Bunn Falconbury,Georgia Dyer's granddaughter: 'Don't know too much about Dyers except Grandma Gallup was a Dyer, had a brother Milton and a sister Stella.'This brief reference is the only supporting source for these children that I have come across.
