Marcella Netterville1,2,3

b. 1777, d. 18 November 1865
ChartsDescendants of Thomas Gerrard of Gibbstown, County Meath, Ireland and his Brothers
Father*Frederick Netterville1,2,3 d. 1785
Mother*Mary Keogh4
Birth*1777Marcella Netterville was born in 1777.5
Inheritance* After her father died in 1785, Marcella inherited the family's extensive land holdings.4
Marriage*1822She married John Gerrard of Gibbstown, County Meath, son of Thomas Gerrard and Elinor Carroll, in 1822.6,1,4,2,3
Occupation*Soon after their marriage, John and Marcella began to convert Marcella's 7,000 acre estate in County Galway into grazing pasture. In order to make that happen 67 families, between 270 and 447 persons, "had to be put off their land, their cottages destroyed, all to be replaced by cattle bought at the Ballinasloe fair."4
Historical Note*13 March 1846 Other landlords followed the Gerrard's lead as they began showing that tenanted land could be made far more profitable by converting it into grazing pasture. Then, with the spread of the Great Famine, and with many small farms unable to produce and becoming worthless, more and more landlords began to replace their tenants with cattle. George Charles Bingham, Earl of Lucan, alone evicted 2,000 people between 1846 and 1849 and would become known as the Great Exterminator. Ireland's first official figures of recorded evictions were in 1849, and 16,686 evictions were recorded that year alone.

Information about the evictions was learned from a newspaper article published in the Galway Advertiser. A transcription of the full article may be viewed here.4
(Wife) Death13 November 1858Marcella became a widow when John Gerrard died in 13 November 1858. The couple had no children, and John was succeeded as Heir at Law at Gibbstown by his nephew Thomas, eldest son of his younger brother Thomas.7,8,9,2,10
Death*18 November 1865She died on 18 November 1865 in County Meath. Her primary beneficiary was reported to be Matthew Elias Corbally.1,11,2,3

Francis Newcomb1

b. circa 1605, d. 27 May 1692
Birth*circa 1605Francis Newcomb was born, as calculated from his reported age at immigration, circa 1605 in England.1
Marriage*He married Rachel __?__ in England.1
Immigration*1635Rachel and Francis Newcomb sailed from London to New England with their two children, Rachel and John, on the ship Planter, Nicholas Trarice, Master, in 1635. Francis, aged 30, stated his occupation as husbandman. His wife Rachel was 20, their daughter Rachel 2 1/2 and son John 9 months. Newcomb's conformity was certified and he took the Oath of Allegiance on 6 April 1635.1
Residence*The Newcomb family settled in the outlying part of Boston which became Braintree.1
Religion*16 February 1639Rachel Newcomb was admitted to the church in Boston on 28 February 1635/36 and Francis Newcomb was dismissed to the church in Braintree on 16 February 1639. There was some doubt as to his wife's conformity to the tenets of the Boston faith, however, as on the same date that Newcomb was dismissed, apparently in good standing, a committee was chosen to inquire into the spiritual state of eleven persons in Braintree among whom was "Rachel ye wife of Francis Newcomb."1
Death*27 May 1692He died at Braintree on 27 May 1692 and was reported to have been a "hundred years old". If he reported his age correctly when he immigrated, however, he would have actually been about 87.1

Mother*Rachel __?__2 b. c 1615
Birth*2 March 1640Mary Newcomb was born on 2 March 1640 in Braintree, Massachusetts Bay Colony.3,4,5
Marriage*10 November 1657She married first, as his third husband, Samuel Deering on 10 November 1657 in Braintree. They were married by John Endecott, the first Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.1,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,2
RelocationApril 1661 In April 1661, the two families of Mary and Samuel Deering, along with Samuel's former mother-in-law Mary (Rowing) Ray George and her second husband Peter George, were among the first company of settlers on Block Island off the coast of Rhode Island. The Deering family returned to Braintree, however, before 1670.13,11
(Wife) Death23 October 1671Mary became a widow when Samuel Deering died on 23 October 1671.14
Administration*31 October 1671Mary was granted administration of her husband's estate on 31 October 1671 in Suffolk County. A portion of his estate was to be divided equally among his "eight" children. They were not identified by name, however, and of his children, the births or baptisms of only seven were recorded in Braintree. For an eighth child, Samuel Deering of Wrentham is highly probably. As the first daughter Sarah died young, there must have been another child, probably a daughter, to make up the tally of eight who survived their father.11
Court Action*28 July 1674 On 28 July 1674 Mary was ordered to appear in court to answer the complaint of Joseph Adams and in the meantime not to alienate any of the estate. She presented her account on 27 October 1674 and was ordered to pay 20 shillings each to the youngest seven children as they arrived at their respective ages, "the eldest having had her portion already." If there was any land at Quinebauge (Plainfield, Connecticut) belonging to the deceased Samuel Deering, it was to be divided equally among his eight children.11
Marriage*27 April 1675She married second, as his second wife, George Spear on 27 April 1675.11,2
Death*1 August 1678She died on 1 August 1678 in Braintree at age 38.15

Marriage*27 February 1879He married Isabelle Mary Godfrey, daughter of Hugh Y. Godfrey and Frances E. McCance, on 27 February 1879 in Stark County, Illinois. They were 1st cousins.2
(Brother-in-Law) Death9 January 1897His brother-in-law, Willis L. Godfrey, committed suicide on 9 January 1897 in Peoria County, Illinois, at age 39.3,4
(Brother-in-Law) Illness9 January 1897Long before alcoholism was recognized as a disease, his brother-in-law, Willis L. Godfrey, was likely a serious alcoholic. The newspaper describing the events of his suicide on the evening of 9 January 1897 in Peoria, Illinois, began their story by reporting that his wife, Mary Jane Lovitt, who was not named in the article, had separated from him and had been living in La Harpe for the past year with her brother, Willis Harris Lovitt, his wife, Mary, and their family. It was also not mentioned that Willis and Mary Jane's mother, Leah (Stamets) Lovitt, also resided with her son's family in La Harpe in 1897.

The news article, returning to the evening of January 9, reported that Godfrey had gone into a saloon in Peoria and called for a drink. When he was unable to pay for it, he and the bartender exchanged words, and Godfrey threw his coat on the bar and left the saloon. No one witnessed what happened next, although the supposition was that Godfrey went straight to the Illinois River and plunged in. Eleven weeks later, on Sunday, March 21, his body was found floating in the river and was identified by friends.

Godfrey was twice married. His first wife, Nancy Elizabeth Masters, who was not named in the article, secured a divorce, remarried and was living in Monroe, Nebraska; his second wife, as stated above, was living in La Harpe. Godfrey had been employed on several roads as a brakeman, but could not keep a job "due to his dissipated habits." The article concluded with the newspaper's editorial judgements that, "His evil ways dragged him down and when he did not have the price of a drink of whiskey he went to the river and drowned himself. This sad history is but the old story of the dreadful power of the demon rum."4,5
(Husband) Death7 August 1917William became a widower when Isabell Mary (Godfrey) Newland died on 7 August 1917 at age 67.6
Death*11 July 1928He died on 11 July 1928 in Fontana, Walworth County, Wisconsin, at age 831
Burial* and was buried with his wife in Block 59, Lot 1, Space 3, of Toulon Cemetery, Toulon, Stark County, Illinois.1
