Milford Township became part of Juniata County when that county was formed from Mifflin in 1831.4 He married Nancy Agnes Mitchell at Pennsylvania on 23 August 1810.5 Edward (Ned) Williams lived; PA, IL, IN Vermillion County by 1836.1 He is included in the biography of David Shirk and Harriet Ann Sangster; David SHIRK, farmer, Waterman, was b. in this township on the same farm on which he now resides, his father, Isaac Shirk, having come to this part of the state in 1826, with his father, David Shirk, when quite young, and located on Coal Creek, he being the second settler in this part of the county. His mother, Sarah WILLIAMS, was a d/o Edward Williams, one of the early settlers in Vermilion Co. Mr. David Shirk is engaged in managing the farm of 156 acres belonging to the estate, his mother and one brother being still alive. His father d. in 1849, of cholera, while on a trip to New Orleans on a flatboat, in which business he had been engaged for a long time. At the time of his death he was on his 21st trip to that port. in 1861, Mr. Shirk enlisted in the 21st Indiana and in Nov. of the same years was discharged. He reenlisted, in 1862, in the 97th Ind. Reg. and served 3 years and was at Cornith, Vicksburg, and the battle of Jackson. He was marr. in Covington to Miss Harriet A. SANGSTER, d/o Capt.

Mr. Shirk has a family of two children: George E. and Sallie B. In politics he is a prominent member of the Democratic party. He does a large business in agricultural implements. Taken from: The 1880 History of Parke County, Indiana. JH Beadle. Chicago: HH Hill.6 Edward (Ned) Williams was census 1840 in June 1840 at Newport, Vermillion County, Indiana; Edward Williams 1 male 5-9 2 males 20-29 2 males 50-59; 1 female 0-4 1 female 10-14 2 females 15-19 1 female 20-29 1 female 40-49.7 He died circa 1851 at Vermillion County, Indiana.3 He 'Zechariah Williams of Pennsylvania, who settled in Edgar County, (now Douglas?) IL., and later became the pioneer hotel man in Newport, Ind.'--from Vera Feaver, who also said Edward Williams separated from his wife proof - Sarah Shirk death cert; will of Amos Williams (Will Book 2, pages 94-95, Parke County, IN, mentions residence of Isaac Shirk which must be Sarah's residence as Isaac was by this time deceased; Edward Williams mortgage deed, Book 9, p. 52, Vermillion County, IN this mortgage deed helps establish when Edward Williams died. The will of Amos Williams, written in 1857, doesn't mention father Edward but does mention mother Nancy William. That's why I say she died after 1857 -- I know she died but have no proof). Will of William Mitchell, Book 3, p. 270-271, Mifflin County, PA, lists daughter as Agnes Williams and helps establish she married by 1816 when will was written. Newport and Vermillion Township -- The First One Hundred Years, 1824-1924, by Harold L. O'Donnell (1968) -- Lot 74. 'Like many other lots the first three purchasers were speculators who helped to cash in on a possible surge of growth. Edward Williams, the fourth purchaser is known to have operated a restaurant there between 1841 and 1847, and a story in the Hoosier in later years told of Williams' granddaughter, a Mrs. McAlister, by that time an aged woman, coming back to Newport and wanting to buy the clock that had been in her grandfather's restaurant. The clock had passed into the hands of Attorney M. G. Rhoads, who as glad to let her have it.' Vera Shirk Feaver wrote 'A fire in 1898 burned this block and the building owned by Ed Williams. We had lunch in the restaurant next door to Lot 74. The Vermillion County Court House is across the street. Lot 74 now has a gift store. We visited here on 7-25-87.' together with his wife 'of the county of Vermillion and State of Indiana' on 27 Jan 1836.1 He was mentioned deceased This account was found in the Mifflin county Historical Society.
It was written shortly before William's death in 1875 and published in the Lewistown Gazette. It is rambling and sometimes hard to follow but I thought you might find it interesting. I have copied it exactly as I found it; however I have numbered the children to make it easier to follow.
" My grandfather, John Mitchell , came to Philadelphia long before the Revolutionary War. He married a lady named Jane Ross, the only daughter of Lord John Ross who was very wealthy. Her father was bitterly opposed to the marriage and they had to flee the country. (Ireland) The father then offered one hundred pounds, under the Old English law for his head, dead or alive. In the course of time the father became reconciled to the marriage and went up from Philadelphia to Carlisle and owned them as his children. John Ross died in Philadelphia, date unknown to us.

Isabella died November 15 , 1811 and John Ross died in 1802, at the same place where his father died, one mile north of Carlisle at the Big Limestone Spring. Another daughter is said to have married a man named Miller. This might have been the daughter of the first marriage to Mary West.
(5) Ann Agnes married Thomas Alexander.
(6) William 1756-1822, married Elizabeth Hamilton on March 23 1780; He died March 8, 1822; She died April 9, 1827, in Clarion county.

Jacob Ashmead's Co., same Regiment, as drummer. He served 2 years; was paid off in Continental money, fetched it home and bought a farm near Lancaster or New Lancaster . He married near Red Rock Church in Sherman's Valley. In 1766 his father John traded the horses he rode over the mountain into Dry valley, looking for land, to a man named Baird for his claim to several hundred acres of land.
In 1781 William sold his farm he bought with his war pay to a man named Davis, and in 1784 he, his wife, and two children, on horseback came over the mountain to settle upon the farm his father had traded his horses for.
