John Colman1

Father*William Colman2 b. 31 Aug 1643, d. 27 Mar 1712
Mother*Elizabeth ______2 d. b 30 Jun 1692
Marriage*19 July 1694He married Judith Hobbey on 19 July 1694 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). Their marriage was performed by Reverend Cotton Mather.3,4,5
(Heir) Will25 March 1747John Colman Esq., described as his beloved brother, was named as a beneficiary in the will of the Reverend Benjamin Colman dated 25 March 1747 in Boston. The will gave John, or his Heirs, back his bond for £100, along with the interest due, and also any note or notes hand written by John made payable to Reverend Colman. The gift was made on the condition that John, or his Heirs, would first repay Mr. James Pitts of Boston, thereby cancelling the bond Reverend Colman had cosigned for as John's surety. The will encouraged his brother John to accept the gift as a sign of his gratitude and as a small acknowledgement of his great obligations to him during his youth.2
(Brother) TrustJohn's grandchildren and their heirs were named as secondary beneficiaries in the will and resulting trust of the Reverend Benjamin Colman, John's brother. Reverend Colman's will directed that a Trust for his grandson John Dennie be created. He ordered that the residue of his library be sold and the proceeds, together with his little silver plate and household goods, be added to the bonds, mortgages and monies he left, and that after the just payment of debts and legacies, the yearly income of the remaining personal estate, together with his house in Brattle Street, Boston, his only real property, be used to fund the Trust. He appointed his beloved nephew Benjamin Colman and honored friends Jacob Wendell Esq., John Phillips Esq. and Thomas Hancock as Executors of both his estate and the Trust, relying on their love and goodness to accept the appointment for the sake of his poor, helpless grandson, for his custodial and desired, both worldly and spiritual good. It described, in some detail and with conditions, his instructions on how his grandson was to be raised to manhood.

In order that they might achieve that end, Colman empowered his Executors and Trustees, according to their best judgment, to rent, demand and receive rent, defend his title and property, to let out monies upon bond and to demand, receive, sue for, and recover monies due upon bond or mortgage, to also make necessary repairs and defray every arising charge. Most especially, though, he entrusted them to care for the board, schooling and education of his beloved grandson; to bring him up to learning or to put him to trade or merchandise, as they shall judge most fitting and convenient. And adding that if his nephew Benjamin Colman, or other of his honored Executors could board him and see to his profitable and pious instruction, or take him as their apprentice, it would be his wish.

The will informed his Executors and Trustees that, as a result of Articles of Indenture, or legal contract, agreed upon between himself and his son-in-law Albert Dennie, the natural father of his only branch and grandson, the boy's father had committed to Colman's care and ordering, all that concerned the education and support of his grandson John Dennie. The agreement gave Colman the right and responsibility to do for his grandson as a father for his child and empowered him to provide for him by will and testament as he was now doing. The will then committed John Dennie to the care and ordering of his worthy Trustees and Executors throughout his whole education in non age, requiring him to be respectful and subject to them as to his natural parent and guardian. If John should prove disrespectful, the will empowered his Trustees and Executors to withhold and deny to John, when he came of age, the £3,000 legacy bequeathed to him, and also to deny him from coming into possession of his dwelling house in Brattle Street. If John were to prove to be impolite or disrespectful, immoral or impious in the sober judgment and conscience of his Trustees and Executors, the will then ordered that his beloved nephew Benjamin Colman, who was also a Trustee, be put immediately into possession of Colman's house and land in Brattle Street, to remain unto him and the heirs of his body, and their heirs also lawfully begotten, forever. The will added that if John were to become or remain impolite or disrespectful, immoral or impious when he reached the age of 22 years, then the £3,000 bequeathed to him, together with all that should remain of his personal estate in the hands of his Executors and Trustees be equally divided among the surviving grandchildren, or their heirs, of his brother John Colman.

If, on the other hand, his grandson John Dennie, by the Grace of God, for which he fervently prayed for him, prove himself a sober and virtuous youth, in a judgment of charity, with his parental blessing on him, he confirmed to him the £3,000 legacy at the age of 22 years, and with great pleasure he bequeathed to John his dwelling house and land in Brattle Street, to remain unto him and to the heirs of his body lawfully begotten, forever. However, if John were to die without heirs, then the house and land should remain with his nephew Benjamin Colman of Boston, merchant, and to his son Benjamin and the heirs of their bodies lawfully begotten, forever.

The will ordered his Executors and Trustees, within the year following his death, to make the tender of his house in Brattle Street to his beloved nephew Benjamin Colman for him to occupy and dwell in, instructing him to keep it in good repair until the day of his grandson John reaching the full age of 22 years. His nephew Benjamin was ordered to pay rent of no more than £70 per annum, and that he then surrender it up to John Dennie, or legal heir of his body, or rent it of him or his as may be agreeable to him and them.2

Edward Colver1

Name-SpellingsAnother spelling of the COLVER surname found in our research was Culver. The original spelling of the name, and therefore the "correct" spelling, was COLVER. In early New England, where the name was spelled CULVER, it was usually the spelling used by persons not members of the family, especially in the copying of records or preparing indexes. As members of the family moved away from Massachusetts to Connecticut, Vermont, New Jersey and beyond, CULVER became more common with later generations. For the most part, after the fifth generation, COLVER had been replaced by CULVER.2
Marriage*19 September 1638He married Ann Ellice, daughter of Joseph Ellice and Ann ______, on 19 September 1638 in First Church, Dedham, Massachusetts Bay Colony. Their marriage was the second entered in the records of the First Church of Dedham, which probably at that time consisted of a small congregation meeting in the houses of the members. The Reverend John Allyn was the pastor, having been ordained shortly before performing the Colver marriage.3,4

Birth*10 February 1826Elizabeth Colver was born in Pennsylvania on 10 February 1826.2,1,4,5
Marriage*1849She married Joseph Gist, son of Cornelius Howard Gist and Clara Reinecker, in 1849.3,1
Census 1850*17 August 1850Elizabeth and Joseph Gist appeared on the 17 August 1850 census in District 4, Brooke County, Virginia, in the household of his mother Clara Gist. Joseph, age 34, was a farmer with real estate valued at $7,875. Joshua Gist, age 32 and an M.D., appeared as the Head in the neighboring household with real estate also valued at exactly $7,875, leading us to believe that he was likely Joseph's brother. Also listed with Joseph and Elizabeth, who was age 24, were their infant daughter Louisa Gist, age 1/12, another Clara Gist, age 15, and two male laborers. The younger Clara, while believed to have been a relative, was probably too old to have been a daughter of either Joseph or Joshua, and too young to have been their sister. Her relationship to the extended Gist family has not yet been determined.4
Census 1870*25 June 1870Elizabeth and Joseph Gist appeared on the 1870 census taken on 25 June 1870 in Wellsburg Post Office, Buffalo Township, Brooke County, West Virginia. Joseph, age 50, was a farmer with real estate valued at $64,000 and personal property at $7,180 and Elizabeth, age 44, was keeping house. Five of their children resided with the couple in 1870. Samuel was age 19, Rachel 16, Joshua 14, Mary 9, and young Joseph was 5. Two others, both born in Pennsylvania, also lived in the household. Maria Westlake was age 20, and Robert Patterson was 12.6
(Wife) Death22 November 1892Elizabeth became a widow when Joseph Gist died on 22 November 1892.3,7

  4. [S225] Wikipedia Free Encyclopedia, online at www.wikipedia.org, The Rogerenes (also known as the Rogerens Quakers or Rogerines) was a religious sect founded in 1674 by John Rogers (1648–1721) in New London, Connecticut. Rogers was imprisoned and spent some years there. He was influenced by the Seventh Day Baptists and the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) and opposed the Established Puritan church. Rogerenes initially held to a Seventh Day (Saturday) Sabbath, but over the years began to regard each day as equally holy. Their disdain for Sunday worship often brought them into sharp conflict with their neighbors. Increasingly they adopted a Pacifist stance, including war tax resistance, which further brought them the ridicule of the larger community. Some of the Rogerenes left Connecticut and migrated to New Jersey settling in parts of present-day Morris County. One such group settled in what is now the Landing section of Roxbury Township, New Jersey near Lake Rogerine, then known as Mountain Pond in about 1700. Another smaller group of Rogerenes in about 1734 settled on the eastern side of Schooley's Mountain near present-day Hackettstown, New Jersey. Rogerene worship services continued through the early 20th century in Connecticut. Hereinafter cited as Wikipedia Encyclopedia.

John Colver1

b. 15 April 1640, d. before 2 December 1732
Father*Edward Colver2
Mother*Ann Ellice2
Birth*15 April 1640John Colver was born on 15 April 1640 in Dedham, Massachusetts Bay Colony,1
Baptism19 September 1641 and was baptized on 19 September 1641 at First Church, Dedham.1
Name-SpellingsAnother spelling of the COLVER surname found in our research was Culver. The original spelling of the name, and therefore the "correct" spelling, was COLVER. In early New England, where the name was spelled CULVER, it was usually the spelling used by persons not members of the family, especially in the copying of records or preparing indexes. As members of the family moved away from Massachusetts to Connecticut, Vermont, New Jersey and beyond, CULVER became more common with later generations. For the most part, after the fifth generation, COLVER had been replaced by CULVER.3
Marriage*before 8 August 1665He married Mercy Clark, daughter of James Clark, in New London, Connecticut, before 8 August 1665, the date John and his wife "Marcye" sold land "given us" by John's father.4,5,6
Death*before 2 December 1732He died before 2 December 1732 when his will was filed at Black River, Hunterdon County, New Jersey.7,8
