1 "Creek Holds Bodies of 2 Scouts and Scoutmaster - Fred M Coe Of Union City Area Fails To Save Youths And Perishes - Efforts to find the bodies of the heroic scoutmaster and two scouts who were dragged to their deaths in the treacherous waters of a French Creek whirlpool still proved futile last night. State Police said searchers had not yet found the bodies of Scoutmaster Fred M Coe, 28, of Union CIty, RD 4; and scouts Robert Sadoski, 14, and Harvey Brady, 17, both of Millcreek Township, Erie County. All perished when their canoes capsized Saturday morning while on an explorer expedition. The two-day search for the victims had to be called off again last night because of darkness. Two other Boy Scout leaders and five other youths escaped death in the triple tragedy which occurred a quarter mile east of Pollock Bridge between Mill Village and Waterford. The survivors who were treated at Stem Memorial Hospital in Union City for shock and exposure were: Clyde Watson, 30, Harborcreek, RD 7, field executive of the Washington Trail Boy Scouts; Walter Shenk, 23, of North East, a scout executive; Alan VanderWelle, 16, of North East; Albert R Fuller, 15, of 22 E High St, Union City; Peter Hatch, 14, of 29 W High St, Union City; Noel Magee, 14, of 120 S Main St, Union City; Richard Bisbee, 14, of 24 Hazen St, Union City. Mr Watson, who along with Mr Coe had gone back into the turbulent waters to attempt to rescue the scouts, was suffering from severe shock and was reportedly near nervous collapse. According to the survivors, the group launched their canoes into the rain-swollen creek about 9 am. Two persons to a canoe, they had gone only about 1,400 feet when the lead craft struck a submerged branch and upset, spilling its occupants into the swift current. The sight threw the rest of the boys into panic, according to eyewitnesses, and two more of the light canoes were overturned by the whirlpool. In spite of all being qualified swimmers, the boys frantically fought to grab branches of trees or swim to shore. One by one the other three canoes capsized. The two drowned boys were in one of the lead canoes. After the canoe carrying Mr Coe and Scout Ross [Fuller] capsized, they both grabbed the branches. Mr Coe then said 'I'm all right, I'll swim for it,' according to the scout. Fuller hung onto the canoe after it went over but had trouble keeping his grip. Several times he was forced underwater and was finally saved when a motorist from the nearby highway helped him from the water. Mr Coe plunged back into the icy waters in a vain attempt to save the two boys. After he went in the second time, Mr Watson said, he failed to come back. The surviving official dove into the creek several times in an attempt to save the same youth Mr Coe was trying to reach. The section of the creek is considered the most treacherous in the entire length of the waterway. The depth of the channel where the accident occurred is between 12 and 35 feet. Ralph Manross, a farmer at whose place the scouts had camped on Friday night, called the Stancliff Hose Co of Waterford after the tragedy for aid. Mr Watson and Scout Fuller had hailed a passing car to get to the Manross home. In a matter of minutes, volunteer firemen were searching all along French Creek for the survivors. They were joined shortly by State Police. Within 10 minutes, Fire Chief Rex Scott said, there were more than 100 volunteers looking for the bodies. Volunteers from Cambridge Springs, Meadville, Edinboro and Mill Village joined the others in the grim search. Four of the five canoes were found within an hour. The survivors were taken to Manor Tavern where a first aid station was set up. Mr Watson returned to the creek and remained there for more than an hour, praying and waiting for the others to be found. In spite of trying to remain calm, he broke into hysterical sobs as he awaited the news of all his charges. According to E T Spangler, executive officer of the Scout Council, the creek was calm when the canoes were launched. His statement said Mr Coe, who was scoutmaster of Troop 3 in Union City, and Mr Watson decided that the creek was rising and had ordered the canoes to shore just before the first craft capsized. The drowned scoutmaster, he said, was a veteran leader of a number of canoe trips. He was a nephew of L F Thayer, telegraph and sports editor of The Titusville Herald. Several youths did not make the trip. One of them, Dennis Kennedy, 14, son of Mr and Mrs George Kennedy of Union City, RD 2, came down with the measles last Wednesday and could not make the trip. He was scheduled to ride in the same canoe with Mr Coe." (Titusville Herald, May 14, 1956, pp.2, 8) SADOSKI, Robert J. (I877)

7 Absolom Crossom Russell

We have found quite a few genealogies which include Absolom (circa 1760) originating from Scotland. Some pointing to a village named Crossom. We also have found a Scot tartan (2 versions) and a crest (registered with the Lord Lyons) in the Russell name.

However, looking at the time period that Absolom came to America (before 1791) we find it highly unlikely that he would have gotten off a ship and headed for Alabama. At that point in time Alabama was a vast wilderness and very hostile. The distance from Williamsburg, VA (the most likely port of entry) to what would have been Alabama at that time is approximately 500 miles. On foot or horse back the trip would have taken nearly a month. The native Indian tribes in the area at that time were extremely hostile and typically ambushed and killed settlers.

Absolom's son Absolom was born in Lee County Virginia in 1791. This point is generally agreed upon across many of the genealogies we have read.

The references to a village in Scotland named Crossom are in question as well. We have looked through quite a number of maps dated from 1620 through 1810 and have not found a village, county, parrish, clan or any other evidence to suggest that Crossom was the name of a place. We have found however, a family named Crossom in Scotland close to the time period that Absolom was born. It could be possible that one of Absolom's ancestors married and had children with a female from that family.

We have found considerable evidence in print to suggest that Absolom C Russell Sr. was born in Virginia in 1760. We also have found documents (a land grant) giving this Absolom 100 acres of land in what is now Casey County Kentucky. There is also evidence that at 16 years old this Absolom participated in the American Revolution.

From evidence we have found, research we have completed our conclusion is that Absolom (circa 1760) was in fact born in Halifax Virginia and migrated to Kentucky.

25 Clan/Family Histories
- Russel/Russell

Russell Tartan This name is probably derived from "rous" meaning red and early bearers of the name no doubt had red hair - and were probably of Norman or French extraction. While the name is by no means confined to Scotland, it is within thp 50 most frequently found names in the country.

The name is one of the earliest surnames recorded in Scotland, the first being a Walter Russell who witnessed a charter in Paisley Abbey some time between 1164 and 1177. John, son of Robert Russel of Duncanlaw granted land to found a Hospitatween 1180 and 1220. Robert Russel of Berwickshire was a big enough landowner to be required to sign the Ragman Roll and pay homage to Edward I in 1296.

Russels can be found in Aberdeenshire where Rozel, an English baron who had fought at the siege of Berwick and the Battle of Halidon Hill in 1333, obtained an estate at Aden. The family was described as "Russel of that Ilk" implying that there substantial landowners. As such, Russel is one of the clans and families of Scotland with a coat of arms recognised by the Lord Lyon.

Not all Russells were recorded for their good works. Jerome Russell, a monk, was burned at the stake in the High Street, Glasgow, for heresy in 1539.

There was a significant family of Russels in Selkirkshire in the Scottish Borders and many entered military service in India in the 18th and 19th centuries.

In England, a family which began with a Rufus (another form of Russell), rose to become the Dukes of Bedford. The 3rd son of the 6th Duke of Bedford studied at Edinburgh University where he was greatly influenced by the independent and democc philosophy taught there. He became a great Reformer and was an architect of extending the franchise for the Westminster parliament in the first Reform Act of 1832. His grandson, the 3rd Earl Russell, was also an independent thinker, better known as the philosopher Bertrand Russell.

Russell was the 47th most frequent surname at the General Register Office in 1995.

27 Deacon Samuel Chapin
Magistrate; Town Commissioner; Church Deacon

(my 9th g-grandfather)

b. 8 Oct 1598 in Paignton, Devonshire, England - d. 11 Nov 1675 in Springfield, MA at age 77
m. Cicely PENNY 9 Feb 1623 in Paignton, Devonshire, England

"The Puritan" - a bronze statue in Merrick Park next to the Public Library in Springfield, Mass. honors one of the town's founders, the Deacon Samuel Chapin. The artist was Augustus St. Gauden and it was commissioned by Chester W. Chapin, Springfield's railroad magnate, in 1885. The statue was originally unveiled on Thanksgiving Day in 1887 in Stearns Square, and remained there for twelve years before being moved to its current location. In moving the statue, the beautiful bronze fountain and pink granite bench that were constructed to compliment the artwork were relocated to other parts of the city. The working model is now owned by the Carnegie Museum of Art.

"The beginning of the Chapin family is altogether creditable. We may well be satisfied that it should start with this genuine old Puritan and what he did, with his fellow pioneers, to open the American Continent and on it found a city and to establish a model Christian Republic. The rolls of heraldry, even if they could show the name linked with royal or princely blood, would add nothing to the true nobility of its origin. It belongs peculiarly to this country, and the sphere of its highest dignity and honor was no doubt ordained to be here. Our chief anxiety should be to maintain and advance its true nobility by lives and deeds worthy of such a father." - Aaron L. Chapin, President of the Chapin Family Association, at the unveiling of the Chapin Statue at Springfield, MA on 24 November 1887. 60

Samuel CHAPIN and his wife, Cicely, came from England with three sons and two daughters in 1635. He most likely came over in the summer, when the passage was the mildest, and probably landed at Boston, which was then, as it is now, the chief port of New England. They probably settled immediately in Roxbury. Roxbury was founded a few years earlier, in 1630, by William Pynchon. It soon became a small village of from two to three score families, most of whom came from Nazing, London, or the west of England. Possibly it was because he had friends among the latter that determined Samuel to settle in Roxbury. Samuel held land as early as 1639, as is shown by the Roxbury land records.

Like most of the early settlers, Samuel Chapin must have been principally a farmer, although undoubtedly he had to turn his hand to many other pursuits as occasion required, which was in fact very often. In 1636 Samuel, then comparatively a young man, was very probably one "of the Roxbury people" who worked on the fortifications at Cornhill in Boston. In the fall of that year the General Court met at Roxbury, thus giving Samuel a chance to see its workings. During his stay in Roxbury the Pequot War took place, which resulted in making it possible to settle with safety in Western New England as at Springfield. The Chapins lived in Roxbury till the close of the year 1642.

In 1636 William Pynchon, then a resident of Roxbury, led a party of about a dozen families to the Connecticut River, where he founded a settlement then called Agawam, but which four years later was renamed Springfield, after his home in England. Most of the settlers took up farming, as there were many fertile meadows along the banks of the Connecticut, while Pynchon for the most part engaged in the fur trade. The settlement grew slowly at first, but by the time the Chapins arrived, it had become a village of respectable size for New England in those days.

As he had in Roxbury, as at Springfield, Samuel was primarily a farmer, but of course here also he had to do all sorts of other things besides. He soon became one of the leading men in the government of the town and held many public offices during his life including Selectman, Auditor and Magistrate and he was Deacon of the church.

Samuel Chapin lived to be an old man and having borne for over twenty years the burdens of government, now in his declining years withdrew from the center of political affairs. He slowly handed over the reins to the younger men in town. Samuel died 11 Nov 1675; according to the diary of his son Japhet, "My father was taken out of this troublesome world the 11th day of November about eleven of the clock, 1675." His widow, Cicely, died 8 Feb 1683.

Samuel had an inventory of his estate performed for his will. The total sum of his goods, not including his land, was over 45 English pounds. His wife's estate was inventoried in 1682 for her will and the goods were then valued at over 100 English pounds.
