President William McKinley Jr.1

b. 29 January 1843, d. 14 September 1901
Birth*29 January 1843William McKinley Jr. was born on 29 January 1843 in Niles, Trumbull County, Ohio.2
Relationship Note*William McKinley Jr. and John Rose were reported by the Heaton source to have been first cousins, appearing unlikely to this researcher given the almost 80 year difference in their ages. The Douglas County source reported that William Heaton's "grandfather, John Rose, and President McKinley's grandmother were cousins." If a cousin connection existed between the two, it may be discovered with additional research. McKinley was the 25th President of the United States, from 1897 to his assassination in 1901, and also the last Civil War Veteran to be elected to the presidency.1,3,2
Death*14 September 1901He was assassinated on 06 September 1901, six months into his second term, and died on 14 September 1901 at age 58.2

Steven Meares1

b. circa 1639
Birth*circa 1639Steven Meares was born circa 1639.1
(Witness to Will) Will19 November 1657Steven gave a deposition to the court on 19 November 1657 regarding the note Jonathan Pond of Cambridge wrote to his mother as his will before he left for sea on what would be his last voyage. Steven, aged about 18 years, who lived with the family of Edward Shepard in Cambridge, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England),testified that Jonathan also lived in the house when he was not at sea, and that while he was in Jonathan's room, he saw Jonathan put his clothes into a chest and asked him if he would carry the chest to sea. He said that Jonathan answered no, "I will leave these with my mother, that if I com not agayne, shee may dispose of then, & do so of all that I have, onely that she out of thence first pay my debts, and I have writt my mother a note to that purpose." Steven said that Jonathan showed him the note, and he read it, and that the note presented to the court as Jonathan's will was the very same note. Sarah Pond, "neere 17 years of age", although she was probably a little older, gave her deposition on the same date. She said that she saw Jonathan Pond, her brother, write the note, deliver it to his mother and tell her that he desired her to dispose of his estate if he should not return and to tell his mother "and here is a note to that purpose."1
