HISTORY. CHAPTER III.

Of John Arnold I have been able to learn but little.  If we judge of him from documents of his time, which allude to his father as 'Captain' Richard Arnold, to his son as William Arnold, 'of Smithfield, Esq.', and to himself as simply John Arnold, 'yeoman', we may regard him as simply a connecting link between his ancestors and his descendants.  It will, therefore, be pleasant to remain in his company, because we know so little of him.  And yet, from positions which he held among his fellow-countrymen, and from works which he has left behind him, he seems to have been a man of more than ordinary parts.

He was one of the organizers of the Society of Friends in Northern Rhode Island, and built their first meeting-house at this place.  He was one of the committee who run our northern boundary line in 1718, and when Smithfield became a town, in 1731, he was the first President of the Council.  He was born in 1671.  Tradition fixes the time of his coming to take up his permanent abode upon his father's lands at this place in 1695, and the records show that this was about the time of his marriage.

The maiden name of his first wife was Mary Mowry, a daughter of Nathaniel Mowry, to whom I have introduced you in a previous chapter. She presented him with ten children, namely - William, John, Israel, Daniel, Anthony, Seth, Anne, Marcy, Susanna and Abagail.  Mary died January 27, 1742.  He remained a widower but a short time, and although arrived at the mature age of three score years and eleven, he again put on the yoke of matrimony.  The name of his second wife was Hannah Hayward.  There were no fruits to this union.  He died October 27, 1756, in the eighty-sixth year of his age.  His remains now repose in the burial-ground on the Vose farm at the Globe Village.  His will was written May 5, 1753.  The following is the

Abstract of Will of John Arnold.
'To his wife, Hannah, one-half of the incomes and profits of the homestead farm.  Also, one-half of the meadow and upland at the Little Cedar Swamp.
'To his son, William, thirty pounds of current money.
'To his three sons, Daniel, Anthony and Israel, five pounds each.
'To his three daughters, Mary Lapham, Abagail Bartlett and Susanna Melvory, one hundred pounds each.
'To his grandson, Moses Arnold, five pounds.
'To his grandson, Noah Arnold, forty pounds.
'To his grandson, David Arnold, ten pounds.
'To his grandson, Arnold Paine, the remaining half of the homestead, and of the meadow and upland at Little Cedar Swamp. Also, the reversion of the other half of same at the death of his wife.  Also, one-half of farm stock.  Also, two hundred pounds current money.
'To his grandson, Nicholas Lapham, his French gun.
'To his son, Seth, his part of the saw-mill and appurtances.
'The remainder of his estate to be equally divided among his eight remaining children.'

Before his death John Arnold presented or sold the larger part of his real estate to his sons - William, John, Israel, Daniel, Anthony and Seth. The reader must pardon me if, in giving the sub-divisions of his estate, I get ahead of my story at times.  The excuse which I have to offer is that it would have been much easier for me to tell my story chronologically, and I have chosen another course for the reader's convenience, instead of mine.

Capt. Henry LOTT [Parents] was born 1 in 1707 in of Newton, L.I., New York, United States. He died 2 on 21 Dec 1784 in Moreland, Bucks, Pennsylvania, United States. Henry married Mercy on 3 Apr 1730 in Pennsylvania, United States.

Other marriages:
JONES, Catherine Kroeson

It is believed that Henry Lott, married a second time, a Catharine (Kroesen) Jones, widow, through the courtesy of Mr. Orville Corson, Middletown, Ohio, we give the following letter to him, from Mr. Frank K. Swain, Fonthill, Doylestown, Pa. : -
you ask would it have been possible that Henry Lott's first wife was a Kroesen? I cannot answer this - Mercy is not a Krewson name. Ac­cording to your book Mercy died Nov. 25, 1747, and I found Benjamin Jones died Dec. ?, 1748.

“This left Henry Lott, widower and Catharine Kroeson Jones, widow, free to marry, which they did, because in a petition of the Jones heirs, in Feb. 26, 1785, speaking of their father's estate, say: 'And whereas the said Catherine Jones, widow of the Testator having again intermarried with a certain Henry Lott, afterwards died without making any last will and testament. ' etc.

“They were asking to have the farm disposed of and the money divided among the Jones children. This could not have been done before the death of Catharine Krewson Jones Lott. Several of her Jones children were already dead and I feel sure the petition was made directly after her death say about Jan. 1785, so as to settle this long drawn out estate (77 years) which she had the use of as long as she lived.

“If she married again she had the right to choose one of Benjamin Jones' farms as her own. As no mention is made of the 250 acres she received from her father Derrick, she must have chosen that tract and disposed of it soon after her marriage with Henry Lott, as her niece Elizabeth Kroeson and husband John Vanartsdalen owned it as early as 1756. Henry Lott was a witness to several Kroeson wills and deeds. If Catharine Jones Lott died say 1785, and Henry Lott died Dec. 21, 1784, the whole thing knits together. Why he did not mention her in his will I cannot see. She was rich herself and that may be the reason, or she could have died first of course.”

(Signed) Frank K. Swain

Capt. Henry Lott, was a Captain of “Associated Companies, Bucks County, 1756,” also served as Captain of the Fourth Associated Company, Northampton twp., Bucks county, Pa., in the Revolutionary War. His will reads as follows:- 1784. Dec. 1. (Just 20 days before his death, he made his will, proved Jan. 10, 1785, and recorded in the Will Book I:16, Norristown, Montgomery county, Pa.) His residence is given as Moorland (meaning Moreland). Five shillings were conveyed to each of the children of his son Peter and his daughter Mary. The remainder was divided equally among his other chfl­dren: Stephen, Henry, Zepheniah, Leonard, and Letitia Carter. Daughter Letitia's share was to be held in trust, she to receive the interest and after her death her share was to be given to her daughter Prudy, wife of Daniel Courson. The Executors were: Zephaniah Lott, Stephen Lott, and Daniel Corsen.
