Sarah Salmon1

F, b. circa 1620, d. between 1674 and 1710
     Sarah Salmon was born circa 1620 at Saint Bottolph's Parish, London, Greater London County, England.1 As of circa 1630, Sarah Salmon was also known as Susan Jagger Edward Ketcham of Ipswich, Kent, England, arrived Ipswich, Mass., 1625, married 1629 in Suffolk Mass. to Susan Jagger. Died 1625 (sic).' Summary of Helen Ketchum's Research, by Jesse Ketchum, included in letter from Jesse Ketchum to Gary Rolph, May 5, 1972 (research summary made in 1959). No one else seems to know of this Susan Jagger marriage. They have Edward m 1640 Sarah Salmon.
Don't know if Susan Jagger is same as Sarah. Marianne Ketchum, letter of May 2, 1972 to Gary Rolph, says Edward's second wife's name is Sarah -----. Marriane Ketcham, letter to Gary Rolph, July 1, 1972 There was a Jeremy Jagger of Stamford, Conn who had a son John whose daughter Sarah Jagger was born 1670 & she married some Ketchum, but don't know when. No proof that I know of. Ref05 has Sarah Salmon, which I assume is based on some research.2 She married Edward Ketcham at Southold, Suffolk County, New York, say 1640.3 As of say 1640,her married name was Ketcham.4 Sarah, as Edward Ketcham's spouse, resided with him, at Southold, Suffolk County, New York, between 1641 and 1653. "In 1640 Edward sold land in Ipswich to Samuel Boardman according to Goldthwaite's 'Boardman Genealogy.' A short time afterwards, the Katcham family moved to Southold, in the eastern part of Long Island, NY. Mrs. Josephine Frost in 'Ancestors of James Wickham and his wife Prudence Billard' says that the earlist records of Southold were lost. She then enumerates of the several properties of William Wells, one piece was Lt. Budd's land and the highway that separates the lot of Edward Ketcham from it. This proved Edward Ketcham was a land owner in southhold, prior to 1651.".4 Sarah, as Edward Ketcham's spouse, resided with him, at Stratford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, between 1653 and 1655. Edwards next and last residence was Stratford, CT, when he moved in the fall of 1653, before the colder weather of winter had set in. Stratford CT i the town where Edward died, on Jun 8 1655.".4 They witnessed Edward Ketcham's death at Stratford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, on 8 June 1655. "died before 9 Jun 1655 at Stratford (Fairfield County) Colony of Connecticut" citing Seversmith, Colonial Families of Long Island, NY and CT; died 19 Jun 1655 at Stratford (Fairfild County) Colony of CT, citing Ginger (Ketcham) Stork, The Known Descendants of Edwar Ketcham.5,3,4 In Edward Ketcham's will on 8 June 1655 at Stratford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, Sarah, John, Mary, Hannah and Hester was named as an heir.6,4 As of say 1656,her married name was Whitney.4 She married Henry Whitney at Fairfield County, Connecticut, say 1656.4 Sarah Salmon lived; England, Long Island NY, CT.1 She witnessed Henry Whitney's death at Norwalk, Fairfield County, Connecticut, circa 1673.4 Sarah Salmon died between 1674 and 1710 at Fairfield County, Connecticut.4

     James Benjamin Wright Sr was born on 16 December 1781 at Randolph County, North Carolina.1 Jesse, James and Richard was probably a free white male, under 16 years old, in Benjamin Wright's household on the 1790 Census at Randolph County, North Carolina; Benjamin Wright 1 male over 16 3 males under 16, 6 females total 10.4 He married Elizabeth "Betsy" Sears at Oldham County, Kentucky, in 1800.1 James Benjamin Wright Sr and Isaac Bowen p. 14 - 'He was an orphan boy and bound out to work. He had to do as his master's slaves did. He ran off with James Wright to KY, then to IN. He lived with James Wright until he married James' dau. At one time he was one of the largest tax payers in Monroe County. His farm was nine miles south of Bloomington, IN, and joined that of his father-in-law's, James Wright.

James married Elizabeth Sears, dau of Christian and Cathe rine Sears, in about 1800. They lived a few years with Christian Sears in KY, then moved to Utica, IN. Their third child, David, was born Nov 16, 1806, at Utica, IN. Later they moved to Pigeon Roost, IN. On Sept 3, 1812, the historical Indian Massacre of Pigeon Roost was made. James and Elizabeth had five children at the time, Frankie Ann, Charity, David, Nancy, and Emsley. They lived east of the Indian trail from the settlement and were spared. James was out working the next day whe a man came running to tell him the sad news, that Pigeon Roost had been taken the night before by Shawnee Indians. Sixteen children and six women had been slaughtered. James took Nancy, the fourt child, on horse back to KY, near Louisville, to his wife's parents, Christian and Catherin Sears. James and nego slaves took wagons back to get the rest of the family and the household goods. After peace had been declared, James moved his family to Washington County, IN, then to Monroe County in 1816, when IN became a state. James Wright entered land in Monroe County, IN on Sept 24, 1816, the SE Sec 10, 160 acres. Later he entered eight other tracts of land making 1163 acres. One entry in Monroe County, on Sep 15, 1825, was for 80 acres in Twp 7, N of Range 2 W, SE sec. Lillie Wright Lane White, his great grandaugter and writer of this book, has the sheepsking deed for this entry of land, and it is signed by President John Quincy Adams. James and his brother Jesse Wright, bought land from Thomas Hill and his wife Milley in 1824. James was at one time, one of the three largest tax payers in Monroe County. His farm was eight miles south of Bloomington, IN. James Wright and family attended a log church on John Kutch's farm near the banks of Clear Creek. It was called Lather Wood Church. Later he helped build South Union Church. Many of his descendants were members of this church and are buired in the cemetery there. James was a faithful member of the church, read his Bible, and had family prayers. In 1941, I saw his large Bible and most every page was marked, some written on where he was searching for knowledge of the Bible. He played the violin and sang hymns. He enjoyed life and died at the age of 92. He was able to work until he fell and broke his hip, when coming from the barn after feeding the cattle one cold winter morning. He lived for about three months. He was buried on his farm, a short distance from his brick home, by his first wife Elizabeth. Many of his relatives are buried in this family cemetery. The writer of this sketch was at his funeral there on May 11, 1873. Bloomington, IN was laid off on Apr 10, 1818, and on the third day of the first Session, a log courthouse was orderd built, and the first Jurors of Monroe County selected. James Wright and John Kutch were among the selected Jurors. James Write was Justice of the Peace from 1818 to 1827, inc. James was tall, of medium size, and had blue eyes. He worked hard clearing off the timber and geting the fields ready to tend in grain. Before I saw James' Bible, I was told that he was born at the beginning of the Revolution, and had a stone erected for him with the date of birth as 1775. His Bible gives 1781, which was at the close of the Revolution. James Wright's birth is given in the Ketchem and Kutch Genealogy as 1775, which is a mistake. Genealogy of Richard Wright and descendants, p. 13-14 Hist of Ketcham and Kutch families (1939) has James Wright as son of Jacob Wright, b 1750 in Prussia, a 'soldier of fortune,' lived to the age of 118 years.! 1860 Monroe County IN census index WRIGHT JOHN 31M W IN INDI 499 422 WRIGHT ALFRED 26M W IN INDI 499 423 WRIGHT LEVI 24M W IN INDI 499 424 WRIGHT JAMES 29M W IN INDI 499 425 WRIGHT DAVID 53M W IN INDI 499 426 WRIGHT G G 24M W IN INDI 499 427 WRIGHT JAMES 79M W NC INDI 499 428 KUTZE AMANDA 30F W IN INDI 500 428.11,3

     Noah Webster was born on 16 October 1758 at Hartford, Hartford County, Connecticut.2,1 He was baptized on 22 October 1758 at Hartford, Hartford County, Connecticut.2,1 He was Lexicographer.1 He lived; Noah Webster, Jr. 2-0-4-0-0 (1790 census.)2,1 He married Rebecca Greenleaf, daughter of William Greenleaf and Mary Brown, on 26 October 1789 at Hartford, Hartford County, Connecticut.1,3 Noah Webster died on 28 May 1843 at Hartford, Hartford County, Connecticut, at age 84.2,1 He Webster's New International Dictionary (G & C Merriam, 1950), has this before the title page on Noah Webster, 16 Oct 1758 - 28 May 1843 - 'The significance of Noah Webster's Dictionary and his Spelling Book can be appreciated only when they are viewed against the background spanned by his life. He was born on an eighty-acre Connecticut farm the year before Wolfe's victory on the Plain of Abraham, and lived to see American pioneers penetrate overland into California and Oregon. He was a small boy when the Stamp Act aroused the colonists, and a student at Yale when college classes were dispersed into the interior towns by the menace of British landing parties. He marched with his father against Burgoyne. IN 1785, moved by the incompetence of the thirteen Sovreign States, he wrote a widely circulated argument for national uniion. In 1787 he issued an influential pamphlet advocating the adoption of the Federal Constitution. From 1793 to 1798 he owned, managed and edited a daily and a weekly newspaper in New York City, supporting the Federalist policies of Washington and Adams. Living under the first ten presidents, he witnessed the acquisition of the Louisiana Territory and Florida, the admission of thirteen additional states and the approaching annexation of Texas. Out of his patriotism and nationalism inspired by this sweep of events came the conviction that lusty young America needed its own schoolbooks, its own uniform language, and its own intellectual life. Into the attainment of these ends Webster flung himself with insatiable curiosity and indomitable energy. His American Spelling Book (which taught not only spelling but pronunciation, common sense, morals, and good citizenship) was partly provoked by his efforts to use Dilworth's English Spelling Book while he was teaching school in Connecticut, New York, and Philadelphia. His dictionaries (Compendious 1806, American 1828) were suggested partly by his resentment against theignorance concerning American institutions shown in contemporary British dictionaries. All his life he was a defender and interpreter of the American political 'experiment,' with all its cultural implications. His Dictionaries and his Spelling book grew out of an intimate and vital familiartity with American life. He knew the farm, the law, the city, the school, and politics. He knew the country as a whole - he had traveled (1785-1786) by horse, by carriage, and by sailing vessel from Massachusetts to South Carolina, persuading STate legislatures to pass laws for the protection of copyright. He was a spelling reformer, an orchardist, a gardener, and an experimental scientist. He was admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court.1
