She believes it was in the year 1777 but does not remember whether it was in the spring or fall, and she says he served at least one year and died in the service with the camp fever and does not remember where the army was stationed when he died but recollects that before she and last husband could get married she had to prove that her first husband was dead. But from the great length of time she cannot recollect of hearing where he died, she further declares that she was married to the said Robert Nutter in Oct 1775, she cannot state what time her husband Robert Nutter died as she is not positive when he enlisted; that she was afterwards married to Thomas Nutter, 3-15-1781 who died Oct 18, 1835 and that she was a widow on July 4, 1836.

Birth*31 October 1812Samuel Townsend II was born on 31 October 1812 at St. George's Hundred, New Castle Co, DE.1 
Anecdote* Samuel Townsend was a businessman and prominent Delaware Democrat. He was the fifth child born to Samuel Townsend (1781? – 1849) and Hannah Humphries Townsend (1782 – 1829), and his nine siblings included brothers John Townsend, Israel Townsend, and Edmund Townsend. Samuel attended school until he was thirteen and left home at the age of seventeen to work on the Union Canal. After a brief career as a ship captain in the early 1830s, he returned to St. George’s Hundred and began mining ore. He soon found more success in the timber industry and, with his brother John, began acquiring property in northern and central Delaware to further this business.2 
Marriage*July 1835He married Ann Maria Hart in July 1835.2 
Anecdote In the 1860s, Samuel refocused his business enterprises on the fruit industry and became a successful peach grower. He maintained orchards in Delaware and Kingston, Maryland, and exported canned peaches to New York.2 
Anecdote Throughout his adult life, Samuel was a vibrant force in Delaware politics. In this respect historians have portrayed him original, aggressive, and public spirited, as well as a “cross for some Democrats to bear.” Samuel was outspoken and opinionated, submitting frequent editorials to Delaware newspapers and publishing political broadsides. He attended numerous state Democratic conventions and was a delegate to the national conventions in 1848 and 1852. In 1860, he was a key player in the controversy surrounding Delaware’s delegation to the national convention in Charleston and Baltimore. Throughout the Civil War he was an avid supporter of the Union cause, but did not advocate the emancipation of slaves. During Reconstruction, Samuel helped found Delaware’s White Man’s Party, which fought to have the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments repealed. Samuel Townsend remained active in politics and business until shortly before his death on 5 December 1881. He was buried in the Friends Cemetery in Odessa, several miles north of Townsend, Delaware, which bears his name.2 
Anecdote Much less is known about Samuel’s three brothers, John, Israel, and Edmund Townsend. John and Samuel were business partners in the timber industry beginning in the 1830s and worked together for many years. They also did business with their brother Israel, an associate of Dover businessman Martin W. Bates. Israel also served briefly as a paymaster in the army in the early 1860s, but lost that job by January of 1863. After the Civil War he resettled in Capeville, Virginia. Edmund Townsend also served in the army as a quartermaster of the 3rd regiment of the Delaware infantry. He fought in several battles in Virginia in 1864. After his discharge, Edmund, his wife, and their children, including two daughters and a son named James, settled on a farm in Prince George’s County, Maryland.2 
Death*5 December 1881Samuel Townsend II died on 5 December 1881 at Townsend, Delaware, at age 69.1 
Burial*Samuel was buried at Appoquinimink Friends Burial Ground, Odessa, New Castle Co, DE.3

Marriage*12 August 1805Charles Willson Peale married Hannah Moore on 12 August 1805 at Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co, PA.3 
Death*22 February 1827Charles Willson Peale died on 22 February 1827 at Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co, PA, at age 85. Artist. Born in Queen Anne County, Maryland, to Charles Peale who had been, deported to Colonies in lieu of death sentence for forgery and Margaret Triggs. At thirteen, Peale became apprenticed to a saddle maker. He became his own master at twenty and opened his own saddle shop. He taught himself several other trades including watch making, silversmithing, upholstery, and sign painting. About 1764 he began to study art with Gustavus Hesselius, a portraitist living near Annapolis. His business was forced into bankruptcy by political rivals and he fled from creditors to Boston, where he worked for a short time with John Singlton Copley. In 1767 he went to study with Benjamin West in London. Peale studied with West for two years before returning to Annapolis. In 1772 Peale painted a three-quarters-length study of George Washington in the uniform of a colonel of Virginia militia. It is the earliest known portrait of Washington. In Philadelphia, Peale joined the militia and fought at Trenton, Princeton and Germantown. In the field, he continued to paint, executing miniature portraits of officers in the Continental Army. He eventually rose to the rank of lieutenant and served on several committees in Philadelphia and in the Pennsylvania General Assembly. With Copley’s departure for England, Peale might have been the most popular portraitist in the country. His completed works included seven sittings with Washington, as well as portraits and miniatures of Martha Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, John Paul Jones, John Hancock, and John Adams. In 1784 he established Peale’s Museum. He had an interest in natural history, and organized a scientific expedition in 1801, largely at his own expense, for the excavation of two mastodon skeletons in New York State, and in 1802 displayed them at Peale's Museum which was moved to Philadelphia that year. Besides portraits of eminent Americans by Peale the museum contained Indian relics, waxworks, and natural history specimens. Peale invented his own system of taxidermy and was a well ahead of his time in his concept of placing each animal in a simulated natural environment. In addition to taxidermy, he developed a level of expertise in fields such as carpentry, dentistry, optometry, and shoemaking. He wrote several books, among which were ‘An Essay on Building Wooden Bridges’ in 1797, ‘An Epistle to a Friend on the Means of Preserving Health’ in 1803 and ‘An Essay to Promote Domestic Happiness’ in 1812. He was instrumental in founding the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1805 and taught there for several years. He married three times and with his first two wives produced seventeen children, many of whom were named for prominent artists or scientists. He taught all of his children to paint, and three; Rembrandt, Raphaelle and Titian Ramsay II, became famous in their own right. At eighty-three he executed a full-length portrait of himself, now in the Academy of the Fine Arts. He died less than three years later at his home near Germantown, Pennsylvania. Bio by: Iola.1
