1 "...as early as 1775 published a poem on slavery, which, condemning slavery as wholly anti-Christian, attracted a good deal of notice. He was the first man in Connecticut to arraign slavery publicly. Elected to the General Assembly from Norwich on that issue, he introduced a bill in behalf of emancipation." Cleveland, Aaron (I444)
 
2 "Among the well-authenticated traditions of the Starin family, also, regarding Philip, is the following: One day as he was at work at his forge, three Indians came in and peremptorily commanded him to drop at once the work upon which he was then engaged and attend to some job for them. Upon his not immediately complying with their demand, one of the Indians plunged a knife into his abdomen, letting out a portion of his bowels. Notwithstanding, however, this terrible wound, he pulled out from the fire a red hot iron bar he was mending at the time, and with one blow laid the savage dead at his feet. Whereupon, the other two Indians fled in the direst consternation. Mr. Starin recovered from this terrible wound, and lived many years afterward."

3 "In 1662, Governor Stuyvesant granted the first patent for land in the Mohawk Valley to Jan Barentse Wemp and Jacques Cornelise Van Slyck, it being the Great Island, or Van Slyck Island, in the Mohawk at Schenectady. Wemp was one of the fourteen original Schenectady proprietors but he died in 1662 and never occupied his Schenectady lands. His widow married Sweer Teunise Van Velsen in 1663, and Van Velsen took Wemp's place in Governor Nicoll's confirmatory land grants of 1667."

4 "Josiah Nelson's wife, Andelucia, was a descendant of the celebrated orator of Revolutionary fame, Patrick Henry of Virginia. Her father's name was Nicholas Henry. Her parents were originally from New Jersey, but they removed from that State to the town of Galway, Saratoga County, N. Y., and afterward to Smithfield, where she was born ; from thence to Cazenovia, in Madison county, N. Y., where her father died, and where she met and married Mr. Starin. All of her family were of Revolutionary stock- Americans to the core-and the male members of the family did valiant service, righting on the side of the Colonists during the War for ndependence. Her father, William Henry, was a second cousin of the author's uncle by marriage, William Henry, who died in 1852, in Wisconsin." --William Stone, THE STARIN FAMILY IN AMERICA.

HOWEVER, I could find no connection between Patrick Henry and Nicholas Henry.

7 "Pneumonia proved fatal for I.N. Springer, pioneer citizen, who died Wednesday afternoon at his home on the Berryman Pike. The aged man, nearing 90 years of age, became ill only a few days ago with a severe cold which developed into pneumonia Tuesday and from the first it was evident he could not recover. The deceased was a true pioneer of the county. He came to Tipton county in 1854, when a young man of 17 years, assisted in clearing a farm, ditching it and doing the other hard labor which the early settlers of this section were required to do to wrest a living from the virgin country. Tipton, then called Canton, was a sprawling village in a swamp with corduroy roads made through the wilderness. Oxen trails were made through the woods and underbrush. Mr. Springer was a man who held the respect and confidence of all. He was a good neighbor, an entertaining talker, especially when he was recalling the early day history of the county from his great fund of personal experience. During the last few years of his life, he was handicapped greatly by failing eyesight and this he regretted very much as he was a great reader and delighted in keeping abreast with the times. He was a member of the christian church and attended regularly when his health permitted. He was the last of a family of six children.
Isaac N. Springer was born in Washington County, Pa., June 22, 1837, being the oldest child of Newton and Sarah (Carson) Springer. He resided in Washington county until about the year 1849, when the gold rush for California was on and many families were emigrating westward. The Springer family came west to Indiana, located in Rush county and resided in that county four years when they removed to Tipton county, settling on 80 acres of land in the south part of Cicero township, within one mile of the Hamilton county line, on what is now known as the I.N. Smith farm. The closest neighbors to the Springer family at that time were Evan and John Young and others who lived at a great distance were Alexander Smith, Henry Eshelman, David Webbert and Louis Beck, all deceased. In 1859, Isaac Springer was united in marriage to Lavina Roadruck, whose death occurred in 1899, following a stroke of paralysis. Of this union eight children were born; Albert N.; Sarah M. (wife of B.F. Chaffin, of Kokomo); Etta M. (wife of John Little, residing near Atlanta); Cora (wife of William Barker, of Kokomo); and Susan still surviving. Three children are deceased. In 1903, he was united in marriage to Mrs. Louisa Goar, widow of James Goar and he and his good wife after disposing of their farm purchased property in Tipton and moved into the city in 1913. Funeral services will be held at the West Street Christian church, Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. W. N. Carroll is in charge and burial will take place at Fairview cemetery."
