"THE MAKEPEACE FAMILY IN ENGLAND"

       'In 1493 the name of Henry Makepeace appears in the Register of the Gild of Knole, in Warwickshire. He was said to have lived at Chepyndorsett (now called Burton Dassett) and his wife is known to have been named Elizabeth. Twenty-one years later, in 1514, Henry became Master of the Gild. Whilst still a Member of the Gild of Knole Henry was also a member, with his wife, of the Gild of Stratford-on-Avon, and in 1506/7 he paid that Gild a levy of 6/8d, and his wife Elizabeth a levy of 20d.

       'The Gild of Knole was founded in 1413 by Master Walter Cook and six other persons. They met in the newly built Chapel at Knole (now Knowle) in Warwickshire. The Hall used by this Gild, or Fraternity, still stands. The fraternity consisted of both Bretheren and Sisters. They were headed by a Master, or Warden, who was elected annually. They were allowed to acquire lands and had the right to use a seal of their own. During the reign of King Henry VIII the Gild was suppressed and all the property sold. This took place between the years 1548 and 1553; the Hall itself being sold in 1550. Shortly before World War I the Hall was given back to the Church, and since the second World War it has been restored.

       'Henry acquired lands, at various times, between 1503 and 1525, at Chepyng Dorset and Fennycompton which is very near to Chepyng Dorset. In 1537 a Bond, signed by Henry Makepeace Junior, of Chipping Bassett, was drawn up. This must refer to a son, or perhaps a nephew for Henry of the Gild of Knole would, by then, have been aged 65 or more and would not have been termed junior.

       'On 2nd December 1537 Harry [Henry] Makepeace drew up his Will and this was proved in the Bishop's Court at Lichfield on 30th April 1538. In this Will he mentions his wife Elizabeth, his son John, his Godson Henry Makepeace and Richard Makepeace, but no relationship is given. An Inventory taken In January 1537/8 describes his house and its contents.

        'The Heralds Visitations of Northamptonshire in 1584 and in 1618/9 give pedigrees of five generations from Henry Makepeace of Knole, Master of the Gild there, and his wife Johanna, and with a son Richard of Chiping Warden (about 7 miles from Burton Dassett). This Richard died on 5th December 1584 aged 68. A memorial in the Parish Church says that he was a Yeoman and that he and his wife Dorothy had three sons and four daughters. The three sons and one daughter are named in his Will which was written on 31st October 1584 and proved in London on 10th January following. The sons were named as Abell, William, and Henry, and the daughter, as yet unmarried, was Dorothy. Another daughter is known to have been Anne who married Ambrose Willis, of Fenny Compton. Ambrose mentions his brother-in-law William Makepeace in his Will, proved 21st November 1590. He leaves his lands in England to his son Richard and he also mentions his Godson Ambrose Makepeace.

       'On 27th March 1596 a Deed was signed by Abell Makepeace, Gentleman, of Chipinge Warden. This Abell drew up his own Will on 16th June 1601 and this was proved in London on 28th September 1602. In this Will he refers to himself as Yeoman. He leaves money to the Church of Chippingwarden and requests to be buried in that Church. The Executrix of his Will is his widow Mary. It is known from the Visitations of Northamptonshire that this Mary was the daughter of Lawrence Washington of Sulgrave. Abell mentions his son Lawrence, still under 21 years of age, and he requests that Lawrence be sent to the Inns of Court in London, there to live as a modest student. He names his married daughters as Lucy, Jane and Amy, and his unmarried daughters as Dorothy (under 21) and Bridget (under 18). He also names his Godson Abell Makepeace and Richard, the son of Thomas Makepeace Ė no exact relationship being given. The Visitation records tell us that Abell had an earlier wife, Katherine Westcote, from Bedfordshire, and by her he had Lucy and Jane mentioned above. Lucy married Basil Trimnell of Stoke, Co. Leicester; and Jane married Richard Butler of Coventry. By his second wife (Mary Washington) he had Lawrence who married Elizabeth, daughter of John Croker of Hooknorten, Co. Oxford, and they had a daughter, born about 1616, named Frances; Amy married Edward Eden of Banbury - from the Visitation of Oxfordshire he was said to be the Town Clerk of Banbury in 1634. Dorothy married James Poultney of London and Bridget married Fabian Cole of Sulgrave - he died before 1653 leaving a Will dated in 1650. Bridget died in 1653, aged 77, when she was of Great Kington now known as Kineton.

       'Abellís widow, Mary [Washington] lived at least another 20 years for her Will is dated 31 July 1621 when she was living at Sulgrave in Northamptonshire. From this Will we know that she expressed a wish to be buried at Sulgrave, in the Church or in the Churchyard. This Will names all Abell's children and their spouses names.

Sulgrave Manor, where Abell and Mary lived, is pictured at right.  Because this is the home of the Washingtons from whom our first president descended, the place is now a museum and tourist attraction.

        'Lawrence Makepeace, Abell's son, matriculated aged 15 on 3 April 1601, at Brasenese College, Oxford. He received his degree on 5 July 1603. His father's wish was carried out and he went to London where, in 1612, he became a Member of the Inner Temple. Within a short time Lawrence was using a Coat of Arms and he appeared before Rouge Rose Pursuivant of Arms asking for the Arms to be confirmed to him. This confirmation was refused as the Arms were those of other well known families.

       'William the second son of Richard who died in 1584 occupied lands at Burton Dassett, for his name appears on a Deed dated 11 March 1567. It is fortunate that the Parish Registers of Burton Dassett commence at about this time (1564) for we are able to learn more about the family of William and his wife. Although we do not know when Susan died we do know that she was alive in 1584 and that on the last day of 1597 William, by then a Widower, married a widow, Ann Prophet. William himself died between 25 May 1615 when he drew up his Will and 23 June 1615 when the Will was proved. Two years before he died he was a witness to the reading of the 39 Articles by the Vicar of Burton Dassett. At the time he wrote his Will, William described himself as Yeoman, and he gave his home as North End, Greater Bassett, in the Pariah of Burton Dassett. He asked to be buried in the Churchyard of Burton Dassett. He mentions his wife Anne, his sons William, Thomas and John - who appear to have been born before the pariah registers commence, and Williamís children (unfortunately he does not name them), and various other members of his family. The Inventory attached to Williams Will describes a considerably larger house than that of his grandfather.

       'On 10 August 1635 Thomas, named as the son of William, and his wife Alice, signs a Deed selling a house in Northend. With this Deed is an Abstract of Title naming Henry Makepeace of Chepindorsett as the purchaser in 1526 and 1527, also Thomas Makepeace buying land in 1548/9. It also mentions Henry Makepeace, the elder, of Chepindorset, in 1530 and William Makepeace, Gentleman, in 1620, and finally Thomas Makepeace, son and heir apparent of William, and Alice wife of Thomas. It is this Thomas who apparently went to New England.'

Notes for Richard Makepeace:

extra info on Richard Makepeace family from S. Star at RootsWeb World Connect Project; str@iwaynet.net:

        "The legend associated with the unusual name, Makepeace, is that the name began with the marriage of Joan of the Tower who was the daughter of the king of England, to David De Bruce, the son of Robert De Bruce. (Robert De Bruce was the chief rival to John Baliol to become King of Scotland). Joan of the Tower was given in marriage by her father to the Scottish King to help resolve a military conflict. The young bride was called Joan "Make Peace." (According Makepeace researcher Rober Weaver, Joan was "without issue.")

His will [at LDS] is dated 31 Oct 1584 It names his children Abel and William as executors and Henry, Dorothy and his wife as beneficiaries.

There is a sepulchral brass at Chipping Warden of Richard, aged 64, Dorothy, and his six sons;

His will is dated 31 Oct 1584. It names his children Abel and William as executors and Henry, Dorothy and his wife as beneficiaries. "

Notes for Thomas Makepeace:

According to researcher Hazel Kendall: "in expedition against Narragansett Indians 1654; sold seven acres 1648 to Roger Williams, called "Dorchester Neck; Makepeaces moved with Gustins to Pennsylvania to Ohio then to Chesterfield, [Madison Co.] IN";

from http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/%egentutor/M_P.html:

       "Thomas Makepeace, gentleman, was known in his time as a man of quite independent opinions. He was informed by the court in 1639, that 'Because of his novile disposition they were weary of him unless he should reform.' He appeared first in records in 1637 in Boston. 'It is agreed that Mr. Thomas Makepeace shall have a house plot and garden place.' [Hanover St. near Court St., was probably not far from where Market Stand was in colonial Boston.] The next year he is shown to have been a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company established in that year. In 1641, he was living at Dorchester where he owned lands; it was at about this time that he married at the First Church, Boston, Mrs. Elizabeth Mellows as his second wife. In Dorchester, he was a supporter of a free school. In 1654, Thomas was in the 'Narraganset Expedition' against the Indians, for which he received pay from the treasury of the Massachusetts Bay. His will on record in the probate office in Boston was dated June 30, 1666. Thomas Makepeace had come from England, according to his statement in his will passing to his eldest son a house and land in England to which he was heir."

Notes for Augustine LeRossignol Jean/John:

information on Gustin and related families from Gustin researcher Walter Nieber, http://familytreeemaker.genealogy.com/users/n/i/e/Walter-I-Nieber/gene5-0006.html;as well as Savage's "Genealogy..." and Hazel Kendall's research;

In Falmouth, Maine, John Jean took a grant of land and later bought more, but after destruction by Indians and French he returned to Lynn, MA. In 1719, he returned to Falmouth where he died.

from http://otc.isu.edu/~cady/genealogy--from the notes of M.E. Bushnell, a great-granddaughter of Amos Gustin:

       "... he [John/Jean] was named after his mother's brother and came to America in 1674 or 75. Coming to America he call himself John Gustine and used Gustin as an abbreviation. He signed his will Augustine. He was a sergeant in Capt. Turner's Co. during the King Phillip's war (Indian war of 1676) He also served under Capt. Beers. He considered himself a sailor and received for his war service land in Maine but after moving there the Indians destroyed everything but one chair."

from "Smith and Deans' Journal":

       'The character of the inhabitants of the middle period was of a superior order. There was among them Augustine Jean the ancestor of the Gustins living here...'

from"Wiltis's History of Portland, Me.":

       'Augustine Jean, a native of the Island of Jersey, afterwards transferred to John Augustine and modified to John Gustin.'

from an unpublished genealogy paper:

       ...came to America as a Capt. in the merchant service in the spring of 1675. Served in the King Phillip's war and received in 1678 a grant of land at Falmouth (now Portland) Maine. He married 10 Jan. 1678 Elizabeth, daughter of John Browne of Watertown and granddaughter of Thomas Makepeace of Boston. She was born March 26, 1657. His name was changed by the early scribers to John Augustine and eventually to John Gustin. He died at Falmouth July 3 1719 the year of his return to that place from Linn, Mass.'

Author of the Cady genealogy site states, "I have a paper regarding the King Phillip's War and it shows that on Feb. 29, 1675-76 that he received pay for services. If this is true, he must have come to America before 1675 or went into the army immediately on arrival."

At left is the plat map of Falmouth, ME, showing the taxable owners as of 1720.  Elizabeth, widow of John, is shown at the bottom while son Ebenezer is show above.

from "Ancestry of John S. Gustin":

       'There is a detailed account of the experiences he had in the King Phillip's War. also told of how badly the people of Marlboro treated the Indians. After the war he was granted land in Falmouth and bought more in Maine. Another passage said that after his marriage he moved to Falmouth and in the destruction of the town in 1680 by the French and Indians he moved to Lynn [MA]. Later me moved back to Falmouth and dated his will there in 1719. The exact date of his death is not known.'

from "Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England":

       'Augustine John had come from the Isle of Jersey and had served in the company of Turner in the latter part of the King Phillip's War. By deed on our record sold to John Brock of the same place all the goods, chattel and house left to him by his father and mother. He married 19 Jan. 1678, Elizabeth daughter of John Brown of Watertown as Bond pg. 145 tells. In 1680 he took a grant of land at Falmouth from President Danforth and bought more but when they were destroyed by Indians he returned to Lynn.'

from "Directory of the Ancestral Heads of New England Families 1620-1700":

       'Huguenot ancestry--Edmund de la Tacq of St. Ownes Isle of Jersey, England progenitor of the family. Augustine Jean Le Rossignol, son of the above of St. Owens born in 1647 changed his name to the present spelling. The name gradually changed to Guston then Gustin and the scriveners turned it into Augustine. John came from the Isle of Jersey, England, in 1677, took a grant of land at Falmouth, now Portland, Maine 1680. He moved to Lynn in 1690 but returned to Falmouth in 1719.'

from "The Ancestry of John Gustin," by Susan McComb:

       'John Gustin was in Marlboro, Mass. during the King Philip's War and served under Captain beers who was killed in a battle. He served under Captain Turner. Captain turner was killed by the Indians at the battle of Falls Fight. John Gustin received land at Falmouth for his war service and purchased land in Maine. He married in 1678. After his marriage in 1678 he moved to Falmouth but the Indians destroyed the town and he moved to Lynn. He moved back to Falmouth after the war and dated his will 1719'

from "The Gustin Family," SLFHL, author not listed:

       'Augustine Jean was born in the village of La Tacq, Parish of St. Ouens, Isle of Jersey, 9 Jan. 1647. The tradition of the sea was in his blood and there must have been the lure of the distant horizon, a heritage of his Viking ancestors--as even before he was 28 years old tradition has it that he made more than one voyage to America on his own ship. In Nov. 1674 his father died severing the last of his home, his mother having died two years before, so the following spring 1675 he sailed to America to cast his fortune with the pioneers of the New World. He settled first in Reading, Mass. where he was known as "Mariner of the Isles of Jersey." However, events were moving too rapidly for men of his adventurous nature to stand by ideally. The King Philip's War was at its height and we find soon in Marlboro, either as a Sargeant or and acting sergeant serving under Captain Beers of Watertown. On the roads to Springfield and Hampton, Marlboro was a meeting place for the different troops. When news came of the disaster at Brookfield, Aug. 4th and 5th, a levy was made in Essex Co., for troops. Those from Salem were under Capt. Lathrop and under Capt. Beers. History says that Capt. Beers and Capt. Lathrop arrived to Brookfield on the 7th where they were joined by troops from Hartford and Springfield to which they marched. They returned to Brookfield Aug. 22 and 23rd, joined Capt. Watts at Hadley. They wanted to destroy the Hadley Indians who were at the fort outside. The 2nd of Sept. while the people and garrison at Northfield were at work they were attacked by the Indians and many people were killed, houses were burned and cattle destroyed. Ignorant of this, Capt. Beers started, Sept. 3rd from Hadley, 30 miles away for Northfield with 36 mounted men and one team of oxen to bring off the garrison and people from Northfield. He camped that night near a stream called Milecreek Brook. The next day Capt. Brooks took most of the forces on foot leaving the horses at camp under guard. He took the team with the stores of ammunition and went until he came in sight of a stream called Saw Mill Brook. The Indians lay in ambush and attacked as the soldiers crossed the stream. Augustine Jean was afterwards in Marlboro. If Augustine Jean was in the engagement he must have remained in camp or escaped. Capt. Beers and 15 others were killed. For service in the King Philip's War, 1675-76 under Capt. Beers and Capt. Turner, John Gustin received land in 1680 from Thomas Danforth, Governor, land of Falmouth, now Portland, Maine. He was granted a fourth lot with liberty in the cove for a brickyard. French and Indians raided the town of Falmouth. The Gustins and the Browns were among the ones fortunate to escape the slaughter. They settled in Lynn, Mass. and their other children were born here. They kept the title on the Falmouth property and they returned before 1720 as his will, signed by him on his deathbed, was dated 6 April 1720. His will is on IDS tape # 0924098 item 20. It shows that three of the children, Sarah, John, and Abigail were in bad grace because their father willed them 5 shillings (62 1/2 cents) each. This was enough so they could not break the will.'

from "New England Marriages Prior to 1700":

       'Gustin, John (1647) and Elizabeth Browne (1657) Married Jan 10, 1676/77, Salem/Lynn'

from a list of soldiers fighting under Capt. Beers in the King Phillip's War:

       'Compensation 25 Jan. 1675/76, paid 05 04 06; compensation Feb. 29 1675/76 paid 01 19 04. President Danforth gave him land in Falmouth and gave him the privilege of operating a brickyard.'

from "Genealogical and Personal Memories, Middlesex Co., Mass." by Cotter:

       'He sold his English property in 1677 and in 1680 he received a grant of land in Falmouth from President Danforth. He bought land in Falmouth in 1690. He was driven from his home by Indians and returned in 1719. He was married part of the time and at one time was captain of a vessel. When he died he left a widow and seven children.

In Testimony whereof I Jeremiah Gustin have hereunto set my hand & seal this 13th day of June A.D. 1822."

from "The Gustine Compendium," p. 238:

        'The Gustins were the first persons to erect their log cabins in Clearcreek Township and for awhile formed a settlement among themselves with no neighbor nearer than two miles. Ohio was then an unbroken wilderness, the virgin soil was covered by trackless forests, where log cabins passed for houses, where all men worked with their hands, where all lived on pretty much the same social level where none were very rich and none very poor; such was the condition, and primeval environment, of the Gustin pioneers at Red Lion in the early years of the nineteenth century. During the intervening period Warren County, Ohio (like Sussex Co., NJ of ye olden time), has been the birthplace or cradle, so to speak, of a numerous Gustin progeny.

       'Jeremiah Gustin (1740-1823) with his sons: Benajah, Samuel, Elkanah, Jeremiah Jr., John and his sons-in law:----Campbell and John Stephenson, located and settled upon 1 1/4 sections (800) of land in Clearcreek Township. Patents covering the said tract were granted by the United State (President James Madison), as follows: January 15, 1810, to John Gustin for the 'North-East quarter (160 acres) of Section No. 8 of Township No. 3, in Range No.4, of the land lying between the great Miami river and the Virginia Reservations, in the Territory North-West of the Ohio and above the mouth of the Kentucky River,' etc.; and on Feb. 6, 1811, to Jeremiah Gustin, for 'Section No. 9 (640 acres), of Township No. 3, in Range No. 4, of the land,' etc., etc.,

       'Warren County, Ohio was organized (from Hamilton Co.) May 1, 1803, and was first divided into four townships, the 'Gustin Section' falling into Franklin Township; but in 1817, a new township was formed, named Clearcreek, the Gustin Section falling in the latter.'

from 'Biographical Sketches' in "Beer's History of Warren Co., Ohio" 1888:

       "...Jeremiah Gustin was a resident of New Jersey, but removed to Pennsylvania and lived several years; thence, in 1798, he, with his family moved into Ohio and located in Warren County, where he entered a section of land--sec. 9, Clear Creek Township-- and here opened out right in the woods, having to cut their way through the brush and timber for a road for their wagons to the spot where they cleared and erected a log cabin, with split puncheon floor, and began in true pioneer style; they had only one neighbor, Mr. Crane, nearer than two miles distant; here Mr. Gustin lived and labored till his death, Aug. 31, 1823, aged 93 years."

from "People and Sites of Red Lion" by local historian Bogan:

        'Jeremiah Gustin and family were natives of New Jersey and settled on a portion of land east of Red Lion in 1798. They had sliced their way through brush and timber, making a wagon road to the spot where they built their cabin. Abner Crane was their nearest neighbor, located about two miles away.

       'Jeremiah built a brick house in 1818 and lived there until his death in 1823. His son Elkanah married in Pennsylvania to Hannah Morris and traveled to Red Lion in 1800. They settled on a section of his father's land and reared 15 children, 8 sons and 7 daughters.

       'Samuel, son of Jeremiah Gustin, was born in New Jersey, but was raised mostly in Pennsylvania. The latter was his place of marriage, but in 1791 he migrated to Cincinnati. In 1798, he arranged for his father and other family members to be brought to Red Lion and located east of the locality. He fathered 13 children. Margaret, his second daughter, was said to have been the second white child born in Warren County.

       'Benajah Gustin was the son of Elkanah and Hannah Morris Gustin. He was born in Pennsylvania in 1797, and was about three years old when his family settled in the Red Lion area. As a youngster and in full life he suffered the hardships of pioneer existence. Benajah married Lydia Newport in 1820 and they were the parents of 11 children.

       'Red Lion, like many other small hamlets, never grew to any great size. About all the prosperous villages were fashioned around a body of water, but none flows within Red Lion's vicinity. ...

       'Crane [Abner] laid out the village of Westfield, now Red Lion, in 1817; it was laid out on the "west field" portion of his land.

       'The first business in Westfield was a tavern that was constructed at the northeast corner of the five-point intersection, namely, the Red Lion Tavern, as per a sign of this effect. It faced west and was a long low log house with an attic in which people could sleep. In front was a wide uncovered porch of flagstones surrounded by a row of stones set on edge. A Mr. Holly managed the tavern until 1849. Benajah Gustin then operated the tavern for a few years to pay a debt of $10,000 that ht lost in the hog market. Mr. Gustin was a member of the early New Light Church and never used liquor or tobacco.'

from Gustin researcher Hazel Kendall's handwritten Kendall manuscript,  929.K Anderson (IN) Public Library:

       "Jeremiah... with his parents to Greene Co., PA in 1798 in flat boat to Jarret's Station at mouth of Little Miami six miles above Cincinnati in Warren Co., Ohio. In 1790 he was living in Lower Smithfield Twp., Northampton Co., PA near son Benajah, David Dilts, and Martin Groff whose sons came with Benajah's sons to Madison County, Indiana.

       "Jeremiah entered section 9 Warren County, Ohio, a leafy wilderness 1798."

quote from great-grandson James M. Gustin, Blanchester, Ohio: "My great-grandfather came here from Pennsylvania, came down on a flatboat, landed at Jarett's Station at the mouth of the Little Miami six miles above the now city of Cincinnati." Jeremiah settled four miles west of Lebanon in 1798 acquried an entire section of land which was later divided among his five sons and two daughters.

Folks from miles around took them home and used them for food. The doctors were unable to do much for the victims during this time.'

132. Amasa10 Makepeace (Peter9, William8, William7, William6, Thomas5, William4, William3, Richard2, Henry1) was born 1773 in Norton, Bristol, MA;, and died February 28, 1845 in Chesterfield, Madison Co., IN. He married Betsey Babbitt May 18, 1800. She was born Abt. 1783

from web site "Pioneer Cemeteries and Their Stories, Madison County, Indiana," www.cemeteries-madison-co-in.com:

       The Makepeace family is of special importance to Madison County.  Amasa and his sons Allen and Alfred were the first businessmen and developers in the area.  The father operated a mill, indispensable to pioneer farmers, on Mill Creek in Chesterfield.  He was also the township's first justice of the peace and postmaster.  Allen continued the milling business as well as the selling of general merchandise, and he platted and helped develop the town of Chesterfield.   Later Allen was associated with the first banks in Anderson and was considered the wealthiest man in the county at the time of his death. While Allen focused on Chesterfield, his brother Alfred centered his business enterprises in the Anderson area.  Amasa and son Allen are buried at the Otterbein Cemetery; Alfred is buried at West Maplewood.  The Makepeace family were the pioneers' version of business tycoons; they and their descendents were some of Madison County's early "movers and shakers."

Children of Amasa Makepeace and Betsey Babbitt are:

Notes for William Dilts:

the first white settler in Monroe Twp., Delaware Co., IN. 1 1/2 mile NE of Daleville; He came with Thomas Gustin.

William Dilts (1793 - 1874), Richard was older brother. William married Jane Gustin 1815 in Warren Co., OH. William & Jane were pioneers in Chesterfield, Madison Co., IN. (Richard and Mary probably moved to area because Dilts and Gustin families already here. Jane Howe, Mary's mother, may have come with them at this time=about 1840.)

William and Jane built the first brick inn [hotel] in Madison County in 1833. Recently someone purchased the building and refurbished it as a B & B.

info from "The Pioneers of Madison and Hancock Counties" by Samuel Harden;

also from "History of Madison County," Kingman, 1880;

"Anderson Daily Bulletin," November 21, 1956;

from Anderson, IN, newspaper, series "Man About Town," Wednesday, November 21, 1956:

       'Time has nearly ended the monument erected in memory of the first white pioneer settler of what is now Union Township. In fact he may have been the first white man to settle in Madison County, tradition to the contrary, and he was the first to live out his life here.

       'William Dilts lived to see the county change from a place where Indians yet were present to a place where thousands of people lived, from a time of uncertain dim trails to the age of the railroad. And he, himself, became a big owner of the lands and head of a family which now numbers hundreds in this area alone.

       'He died February 11, 1874, and was buried in the old Otterbein Cemetery just east of the county farm. He was buried as was the due of a man of means and his monument was tall. but in only the last few years vandals upset the upper portion of his stone, and now young trees are destroying the base, hereby shown, on which are inscribed the name of William Dilts that of his wife, Jane (Gustin) Dilts.

       'Wiliam was born in Lancaster County, PA, May 13, 1793, the son of Francis Jr., [sic] and Marguerite Dilts. The name then was spelled with a "z" as Diltz. The family probably was numbered among the refugees from the Rhine Valley. He moved with his parents to Warren County, Ohio, in the early 1800s. In Ohio he married Jane Gustin. She was born in September 1791, in New Jersey and died in Union Township April 4, 1876. Time has almost wiped her name off the stone.

      'William Dilts is not listed in the Ohio records for 1820, and it may have been that he was in Union Township in 1819 or most certainly, the next year. Madison County was not formed as early as 1820, so he is not in the state census for year. He cleared land and established a home on Mill Creek where Chesterfield is now...

       'Jane Gustin whose daughter married a Makepeace, goes back in her ancestry to Lawrence Makepeace, purchaser of Sulgrave Manor from his relative Lawrence Washington, who goes back in family ties to about 1,000 A.D. She is directly related to Sir William de Hertburn, Norman knight, who became Sir William de Wesyngton, ancestor of the Washington family.

       '...About 1835, maybe somewhat earlier, he built the famous brick inn, now on the south side of Ind. 32, a short distance east of Chesterfield. This was the first brick structure in the township and the finest inn in the county. At that time it was at the forks of the road, one leading east and another since closed, to the southeast. The house yet stands, but Dilts' stone is nearly lost.'

Samuel B. and his wife lived on the old Gustin place at Red Lion until 1845, at which time they were the parents of six children... The Gustin family came to Madison County, Indiana, and settled on the county line, where Samuel B. cleared up a farm of one hundred acres from a tract he had bought in the wild woods and on which he resided until his death March 31, 1874, at the age of seventy-six; his wife died a few years previously at the age of sixty-eight.

Fact 1: was in possession of tool chest of great-grandfather Jeremiah Gustin;

from web site "Pioneer Cemeteries and Their Stories, Madison County, Indiana":

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the "Makepeace House, 5 W. Main St., [Chesterfield]" is an excellent example of early Federal architecture.  New owners have  purchased the landmark, and in restoring it, have retained the original floor plan and interior features.   A second Makepeace brick house sits across the road to the left.  It was not as fortunate: years ago, it was converted into apartments.  

Built in 1850, the structure above was designed as both shop and home.  It was actually the first pharmacy--or "apothecary" as people in the 19th century termed it--in Madison County.  The shop was on the first floor at the front utilizing the two front doors and each side door positioned around the front corners.  The doors were elevated above street level on purpose.  This allowed customers to drive their wagons and buggies parallel to any door, stop, and obtain their medicines without leaving the vehicle; thus, this was Madison County's first drive-up as well.  The new owners are using the Makepeace house as originally intended.  Their store Country Whispers is on the ground floor with their residence on the second.

190. Allen11 Makepeace (Amasa10, Peter9, William8, William7, William6, Thomas5, William4, William3, Richard2, Henry1) was born September 28, 1802. He married Nancy.

from "Pioneer Cemeteries and Their Stories, Madison County, Indiana":

       Amasa's sons Allen and Alfred actually came to the county ahead of the rest of the Makepeace family and were instrumental in the development of the entire area.  They arrived in 1820 and camped along White River where, as merchants, they sold goods to early pioneers and the Native Americans.  While Alfred actually settled in the Indian village (now Anderson) in 1823 and contributed to its growth, Allen settled closer to his father Amasa in what was to be Chesterfield.  Allen  is responsible for starting a store near the Makepeace grist mill in the late 1820s, platting Chesterfield in 1830, and building in 1834 the second brick house in the township.  Allen Makepeace was a highly successful businessman, so much so that when he died in 1871, he was the wealthiest man in the county, estimated at over a quarter of a million dollars (back then!).  As befitting their financial station in life, Allen and wife Nancy have at the Otterbein the largest memorial.  The plot is surrounded by a wrought-iron fence with gate, added Victorian luxuries.

Children of Allen Makepeace and Nancy are:

271 i. Allen Quincy12 Makepeace.

272 ii. Elvira Jane Makepeace.

191. Alfred11 Makepeace (Amasa10, Peter9, William8, William7, William6, Thomas5, William4, William3, Richard2, Henry1) was born November 03, 1804.

from web site "Pioneer Cemeteries and Their Stories, Madison County, Indiana":

       The first business developers to Andersontown were the brothers Allen and Alfred Makepeace.  As merchants, they arrived as early as 1820--before Berry--to the Delaware village on the Wapihanne/White River and began selling goods and supplies from their wagons to the Native Americans and later to the early settlers.  The rest of the Makepeace family, including father Amasa, entered the county around 1821.  The family began a commercial legacy.  While Amasa and Allen centered their financial activities in Chesterfield in Union Township, Alfred focused on the new settlement of Andersontown.  Alfred's business enterprises over the years helped change the little town into a city.  During his life he amassed a great deal of property and eventually built the U.S. Hotel in 1852, a showcase for its time.  Additionally, Alfred also platted and helped organize the town of Frankton in Pipe Creek Township.  Alfred died in 1873 and is buried at West Maplewood.

For one year after marriage Mr. Gustin and wife lived on his father's land and then for a year on her father's. In 1850 he entered land in the Indian Reservation in Madison County, ten miles northwest of Alexandria, erected a log cabin in the woods among the howling wolves and laid in provisions sufficient to last him a year. He cleared up eight acres of the place and set out fruit trees; then he sold the place for six hundred dollars and for six hundred and fifty bought the farm of one hundred and sixty acres on which he now lives... ...the Gustin family are among the foremost in developing from the forest the fruitful farm that now adorns and enriches the country and which have tended to make the town and township what they are today...'
