DESCENDANTS OF JAMES SCHOOLCRAFT

                   =========== == ===== ===========

 

                           Don Norman

 

     The country of origin of the WV Schoolcrafts is not known. At least one writer speculates that the line may have originated in Lancashire County, England, since the name is common there, and other American lines originated in that County.

     It is also possible that the WV line originated in Germany and that "Shoolcraft" was an Anglacized spelling of a German name.

    Another school of thought identifies James Calcraft as founder of the Schoolcraft line.  As of January 1995, there is not enough evidence to connect these two genealogies and James Calcraft's line will be the subject of a paper titled "Descendants of James Calcraft."

 

1.JAMES SCHOOLCRAFT

 

     The earliest recorded ancestor of the WV line on the American

continent is Private James Schoolcraft, a British soldier stationed at

Albany, New York in 1712.  James is known to have gone absent without

leave and was pardoned by Governor Robert Hunter of New York.  James

was in the British Army as late as December 1713.

     James was closely associated with a "Palatine" or German

settlement in the Schoharie, New York area.  He took at least one wife

and possibly two, from  the Palatine settlements.  Only two of James'

children are recorded.

2.CHRISTIAN SCHOOLCRAFT     1.JAMES SCHOOLCRAFT

 

     Little is known of Christian Schoolcraft, except that he remained

loyal to the crown during the American revolution and had three sons

who served the crown in that conflict.  This branch of the family

allegedly fled to Canada after the Colonial victory.

     Perhaps this is a good point to insert a letter concerning the

Schoolcrafts.  This letter was written by Margaret Bush and was

postmarked April 1, 1868 at 33 Courtlandt Street, NY and was addressed

to J.M. Bennett, Buckhannon, Upshur County, WV.

     The letter reads as follows:

          "To the best of my recollection of the famous Schoolcraft

family on this 24th day of March in the year of our Lord 1868, I,

Margaret Bush, sworn and subscribe this is written in my own hand."

     "William and Austead Schoolcraft were brothers, William had a son

Matthew, don't know no more of this line.  Austead had 2 sons, James

1737 who had son James II 1775 who married Mary Carpenter and second

wife was Catharine Bush whom he married when he was 50 years old on

June 18, 1825, performed by Rev. John Mitchell.  Catharine was borne

October 1805 and is the daughter of Adam and Margaret Bush, my

namesake."

     "Austead second son was John 1745 whose wife was killed by

Indians in September 1779.  Their children were John 1761, Jacob 1762,

who married Mary Ann Parsons, Leonard 1763, Lucy 1764, Matthias 1765,

Mary 1766, Martha 1766, Simon 1768, Michael 1769, Austin 1770, Sarah

1772, Polly 1773, Nancy 1774 and Charity 1774.  When Indians killed

Mrs. Schoolcraft eight of her small babies was killed to, Lucy, Mary,

Martha, Austin, Sarah, Polly, Nancy and Charity.  Matthias, Simon and

Michael was captured by Indians in 1781 on Pigeon Roost of Stonecoal,

Matthias was killed and Simon and Michael remained with the Indians.

Jacob escaped.  Leonard was 16 when he was captured in 1779 and made

to run the gauntlet and was recognized many times while making raids

on the whiteman.  Jacob had these children, Aaron, James, Mary, Ann,

John and Permilia."

     Margaret Bush cannot be positively identified, but she is

believed to be either Margaret Bush born 1833, daughter of William and

Mary (Wallace) Bush or Margaret Bush, born 1834, daughter of Paulcer

and Elizabeth (Heckert) Bush.

     If Margaret is the daughter of William and Mary Bush, the

Margaret (Hagle) Bush she refers to as "my namesake", was her great

aunt.  If she is the daughter of Paulcer and Elizabeth (heckert) Bush,

Margaret (Hagle) Bush was her grandmother.

     In either case, we can assume that Margaret's information is

generally correct, because her family was connected with the

Schoolcrafts by marriage.

     There are discrepancies between her letter and other information.

She identifies Astien's brother as William, while other sources list

him as Christian.  Also, Margaret's dates of birth for Astien's

children are at variance with recorded ages and she records Jacob

Schoolcraft as having married Mary Ann Parsons, when records report

that Mary Ann Parsons married Thomas Cottrell Jr. and Rebecca Parsons

married Jacob Schoolcraft.

     These variations do not detract from the value of Margaret's

record; she was probably working from memories of stories told by her

parents and grandparents about events that happened years before her

birth.

 

3.ASTIEN SCHOOLCRAFT     1.JAMES SCHOOLCRAFT

 

     Astien Schoolcraft, a son of James Schoolcraft, was baptized

at  Schenectady, New York in 1720  and was probably born that year.

He  married Catherine Countryman in the Schoharie New York area.  The

baptisms of two children are recorded at Schoharie; James in 1743 and

Matthias in 1745.

     Astien and Catharine left Schoharie after 1745 and in 1749, the

baptism of their daughter, Catherine Lisabetha, is recorded at

Tulpehocken, Berks County, Pennsylvania.  Astien's presence is

recorded in Augusta County VA in 1760 and the family was residing in

what is now Highland County VA in 1766.  Astien and his sons, John and

Matthias, all claimed land on the south Branch of the Potomac River in

that year.  Their names also appear on the delinquent tax rolls for

1766, suggesting that they may have encountered financial problems.

     They never received titles for their land and certificates

issued by the Commissioners in Clarksburg, VA (WV) in 1781 indicate

that the family had come to what is now Upshur and Lewis Counties in

VA in 1774.

     Although it is not known whether the Schoolcrafts were in the

Battle of Point Pleasant in September of 1774 during Lord Dunmore's

War, John, James, Matthias and Matthew were all on the rolls of the

militia companies during the period, so they must have played some

part in the campaign.

     Astien was killed by Indians in 1780 in the area of present day

Buckhannon, WV.

4.JOHN SCHOOLCRAFT     3.ASTIEN SCHOOLCRAFT     1.JAMES

SCHOOLCRAFT

 

     John Schoolcraft, a son of Astien and Catharine (Countryman)

Schoolcraft, was born about 1740 in the area of Schoharie, New York

and came to Fink's Run, near Buckhannon Fort, about 1774 with his

family.  His brother James settled on the main fork of Fink's Run in

1774, and John Schoolcraft settled on Stone Coal Run in 1775.  They

each obtained a certificate for 400 acres in 1781 (their land joined

and John's land  bordered land of Henry Flesher).  (The current

highway between Buchannon and Weston crosses Stone Coal Run). Matthew,

another brother, claimed 400 acres on Sand Fork in Lewis County in

1774.

     Although no documentary proof is in evidence, one account alleged that John married Miotoka Nyeswanan, a Deleware Incian pricess, daughter of Bemino, or John Killbuck Sr.

      In the spring of 1779, Leonard Schoolcraft, 16 year old son of

John, was captured by Indians near Buchannon Fort and carried into

captivity.  In September 1779, Indians attacked the John Schoolcraft

homestead on Fink's run and John's wife and eight of their children

were killed and two sons, Simon and Michael, were captured.

     In April 1781, the last three children were fired upon  by

Indians, as they were returning from a nearby "Pigeon Roost" on

Stone Coal Creek.  Matthias was killed, then John and Jacob were

made prisoner.  Thus within two years, this family of sixteen was

entirely broken up.  Nine of the children and the mother were killed

and three boys swept away into captivity.

      Leonard Schoolcraft stayed with the Indians, turned renegade,

and led raids along the frontier.  There has been some speculation

that Leonard was the leader of the group that killed Astien

Schoolcraft in 1780 and that he was also involved in the 1781 incident

when Matthias was killed.  Dennis B. Rodgers, writing in The Hacker's

Creek Journal,  says:

 

     "Based upon his later conduct, we know that Leonard had the

capability for murder.  The evidence is pretty clear that a little

over eight years after his capture, in December of 1787, he was the

leader of a small band of Indians who ventured into the Hacker's Creek

Settlement, seemingly for the purpose of killing Mary Ann Hacker, the

then new wife of Edmund West Jr."

 

     John and Jacob were held in captivity until nearly grown before

they managed to escape.  The boy adapted so readily to their

environment that they were eventually entrusted with guns and a

limited amount of ammunition for which they were required to account

at the close of each day's hunt.  They were able to hoard a few

bullets, and charges of powder, along with some jerky, so one morning

they left as if for a hunt, but started toward frontier settlements

along a well worn Indian trail.  Their knowledge of woodslore made

their trail extremely difficult to follow and at times impossible.

Once they hid in a cavern in a high cliff with a good view of the

trail.  Towards sundown, a small band of Indians passed in pursuit,

and the following evening, the baffled warriors repassed on their

return home.

     That night the boys continued their flight, making a detour and

striking the trail several miles ahead.  When they finally approached

West's Fort (near present-day Clarksburg) they were mistaken for

Indians and nearly fired-upon.  By holding-up their reversed guns and

making signs of peace they were received without incident.  They later

traveled to Wappatomaka, where their father had gone after his family

was destroyed.

     The father, John Sr., was reportedly over joyed at the return of

the prodigals, however, he indentured his son John to John Wolf in

1784 and John Wolf dropped a pending law suit against John Sr. The

younger John was set at liberty from servitude to John Wolf by the

Harrison County Court April 19, 1791.

     In 1786, Peter Kinshelo sued John Sr. for almost ten pounds due

on various goods, including a gallon of whiskey.  John's name

disappears from the court records after 1787, indicating that he

either died or moved on to less troubled climes.

     Young John applied for a Revolutionary War pension on July 25,

1833, in Lewis County, claiming service as an Indian spy in Ohio under

Ebenezer Zane.  This claim was denied, on the grounds that John was

simply too young.  (He was 14 at the time of his indenture to John

Wolf in 1784).

     In Volume VII, Issue 4 of "The Hacker's Creek Journal", E.J.

Schoolcraft reports that John Schoolcraft's wife was an Indian woman

named Miotoka Nyeswanan and that a sister of John's wife had married

Jacob Brake Sr. of Hardy County, VA (WV).  He names Janet Cosgrove of

Buckhannon, WV as his source.

     However, a perusal of the Stump family history reveals that

Jacob Brake Sr.'s wife was Catharine Stump.  Catharine, a daughter of

Michael and Catharine Stump, was born in Germany October 22, 1741 and

died after April 9, 1816.

     Of course, this information does not prove that John

Schoolcraft's wife was not an Indian, but it does cast doubt upon the

theory that Jacob Brake Jr.'s activities had any connection with the

Indian raids on the Schoolcrafts.

SCHOOLCRAFT

 

     James Schoolcraft, a son of Astien and Catharine (Countryman)

Schoolcraft, was born in the Schoharie New York area about 1743. 

Apparently, James did not move the Hacker's Creek area until 1784,

although he did make a trip to Clarksburg in 1781 to obtain a

certificate for land on Fink's Run.  By 1784, James was the head of a

family of eight living on Hacker's Creek.  His mother, Catharine

(Countryman) Schoolcraft, was a member of this family.

     James' name appears on the tax rolls for the last time in 1794. 

There appears to have been some sort of tragedy that wiped out most of

the family.  In April 1795, Catharine Schoolcraft, a daughter of

Elizabeth, was bound to John Hagle.  This is probably James' daughter.

     In 1810, fifteen year old John the Baptist Schoolcraft was bound

to George Deakon.  Some believe that John the Baptist was a son of

James and Elizabeth, born the same year that his parents died and that

he was raised by James and Mary (Carpenter) Schoolcraft.

Unfortunately, only one of James' children, James, can be documented.

     Jacob Schoolcraft, a son of John Schoolcraft, was born in VA.

His birth date is not certain, since it is reported as before 1765 in

the 1810 and 1820 censuses, between 1770 and 1780 in the 1830 census

of Wood County Va and 1759 in Hampshire County in his Revolutionary

War pension claim. (#R9268).  He died in Gilmer County, Virginia (WV),

in 1850.

     He married Rebecca Parsons, a daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth

(Bush) Parsons. Jacob and Rebecca settled on the West Fork of the

Little Kanawha River, where at one time they owned most all of Bear

Run.

     James Schoolcraft is believed to be a son of James and Elizabeth

Schoolcraft and is believed to have been born in the Schoharie of New

York in 1774.  He moved to Harrison County VA with his parents about

1784.  A few years afterward, both his parents died and he married

Mary Carpenter in Harrison county in 1795.  Mary was a daughter of

Solomon and Sudna (Hughes) Carpenter.

    According to information from Dennis B. Rodgers, the couple is

believed to have had one child about 1798.  Mary probably died

sometime between 1798 and 1810.

     James remarried and his family appears in the 1820 census of

Butler County, Ohio.  His second wife died, probably about 1820.

    His third wife was Elizabeth -----, whom he married about 1821. 

The family moved to Washington Township, Tippecanoe County, Indiana in

1828 and James died there November 30, 1834. Elizabeth died there June

21, 1860.

West Fork of the Little Kanawha River. Nathan reported his occupation

as ginseng digger in at least one census report, and Coy Norman

remembered how he had seen his grandfather set out "sangin'".  Coy

said that Nathan carried his lunch and a very small, specially made

mattock in a cloth sack.  This mattock took a very small handle, and

Nathan would cut a stick for a handle each day, rather than carry a

handle. Nancy Jane died about 1911 on Tanner's Fork of the Right Fork

of Steer Creek in Gilmer County WV, and is buried in the Cottrell

Simmons cemetery on Tanner's Fork. Nathan died July 5, 1927 (while
