Biography

ChildParent1,1
Birth25 December 1826Levant L. Mason was born on 25 December 1826 in Springville, Erie County, New York. Levant's biography in History of Chautauqua County New York and Its People, Vol. 1,Edited by John P. Downs and Fenwick Y. Hedley, American Historical Society,Inc. 1921, states that he was born in Clarence. Clarence is east of Buffalo, and Springville is south of Buffalo.1
Census30 July 1850He appeared in the household of Bartolomew Belden Mason in the census 30 July 1850 in Ellicott, Chautauqua County, New York. Bartolomew is listed as as Belden Mason (age 46, Tailor), with Mercy (45), Levent (23, Jeweler, Value of real estate $500), Harriet (23), Marian (14), Nancy (12), and Laura (6).

WitnessAugust 1877
Newspaper Item28 September 1877According to the 28 September 1877 edition of the Jamestown Daily Journal, Jamestown, Chautauqua County, New York, ,Mr. Levant L. Mason has received from his brother in law Capt R. H. Pratt, of the 10 Cavalry, a magnificent buffalo robe, which measures ten feet in length and is six feet wide. The hair is thick and fine and resembles that of a beaver. The under side of the robe is painted with pictures of Indians on horseback, an Indian war dance, Mexicans in broad sombreros, riding mustang ponies and a host of other aboriginal devices. Capt. Pratt is located at Fort Marion, St. Augustine, Fla. and is in charge of a band of seventy five Indian prisoners, held there by the government. The robe he presented Mr. Mason was tanned and painted by the wife of White Horse, one of the chiefs confined there, and was sent him as a present and by him it was sold to Capt. Pratt. Mr. Mason has a large number of other Indian curiosities sent him by Captain Pratt, but the robe is by far the most valuable of all and is the best of its kind we have ever seen.

The experiment of civilizing the Indians at Fort Marion is said to be successful to a greater degree than was expected, and they are fast losing the habits and tendencies of barbarian life.
Death13 February 1911Levant L. Mason died on 13 February 1911 in Jamestown, Chautauqua County, New York,1
Burial15 February 1911He was buried on 15 February 1911 at Lake View Cemetery in Jamestown, Chautauqua County, New York.2

Benjamin S. Pickard

M, #2633, b. 1821, d. 13 April 1900

Family: Harriet A. ("Hattie") Mason (b. 12 November 1828, d. 11 June 1903)

DaughterIda Pickard (b. 6 October 1851, d. 29 January 1934)

Biography

Birth1821Benjamin S. Pickard was born in 1821 in Ohio. Or maybe 1825, based on death record from City Health Office, Delphi, stating his age in 1900 as 75. And maybe born in NY, based on 1870 census.1
Census-not found1850Benjamin has not been found on the census of 1850 He probably lived in Chautaqua County, NY because his future wife lived there, and by the following year, he had a daughter, Ida, who was born in Ellington. In 1850, there is a family of Pickards in Ellington: Abram (40, farmer), Sally A (25), John T. (17, farm laborer), Benjamin A (14), Andrew P (10) and Margaret Pickard (age 82). I would guess this could be Benjamin's brother or his uncle and his grandmother. The family next door is Henry Pickard (47, Carpenter & Joiner), Mariah (42), Adam W. (18, Carpenter & Joiner), Sylvenas A. (16, Farm laborer), Charles G. (14), Alonzo C (12), Mariah (9), Fanny (7), Ernest (5) and Abram L. (9/12). Again, Henry could be an uncle. Henry's father was evidently named John, born and raised in Madison County, NY. [from Biographical and portrait cyclopedia of Chautauqua County, New York (1891) writeup on Major Alonzo Pickard, the boy above).] John enlisted in the Continental army in the Revolution, was captured by Indians and taken to Canada, and later released. Came to Chautauqua Cty in 1816. Wife was Margaret Becket. They had 8 children (Charity, Marin, Henry b. 1803, Adam, James, John, Peter, Abram b.1810, d.1896) in the later 1700's and early 1800's). One of those sons could have been Benjamin Pickard's father. John (Johannes) b. May 28, 1760 and Maria Margaret (Garlock) Pickard (not Becket?), d. 30 Aug 1827 in Ellery. There are many links on Find-a-Grave for this very large family of Pickards, but I don't see this Benjamin. Since this is not a direct line, I am not searching further.
Marriageabout 1851He and Harriet A. ("Hattie") Mason were married about 1851 After 1850 census, before 1860 census.1
Census1855He appeared in the census 1855 in Ellington, Chautauqua County, New York. Benjamin is listed as: Benj. Pickard (28, b. Cayuga County, married, resident in Ellington 10 years, Occupation: joiner. Native)
Harriet Pickard (26, Wife, b. Erie County, married, resident in Ellington 7 years)
Ida M. Pickard (3, Daughter, b. Chautauqua County.)
Military Enlistment10 October 1861Benjamin enlisted in the military on 10 October 1861 in Delphi, Carroll County, Indiana, In Company C., Indiana 46th Regiment. Age 32. Notes: Was AWOL 30 Oct 1862 to 13 Jan 1863 and the Charge of Desertion Removed. Discharge date: 13 Jan 1863.

He re enlisted in Company M, Regiment 126, on 1 Dec 1863. Mustered out on 19 Sep 1865 at Fort Leavenworth, KS. Notes: Sgt. Reduced to Pvt. 17 Apr 1865. Age 39.

Both of these ages can't be right.2
Census7 July 1870He appeared in the census 7 July 1870 in Delphi, Carroll County, Indiana. Benjamin is listed as: as Ben. S., age 49, Carpenter, personal estate of $2500, born in Ohio; Ida Pickard 18, born in New York, and Harriet Pickard, age 46, Dressmaker, born in New York.1

Birth18 May 1926Effie May Archer was born on 18 May 1926 in Connecticut.1
Death13 April 2013She died on 13 April 2013 in San Francisco, California, (obituary)
Obituary17 April 201317 April 2013, San Francisco, California, San Francisco Chronicle Obituary:. Have you ever wondered what happened to your next door neighbor, church member or worker friend?
Effie May McCallum passed peacefully in her sleep at home on April 13, 2013, she was 87 years young.

Effie May McCallum was born in Bridgeport, Conn. On her mother's side the Holly's can trace their roots back to early Colonial America.

She married Eugene McCallum in Madison Wisconsin where he was stationed in the Army Air Force during WWII.

They had four beautiful daughters; Susan, Diana, Sharon, and Jeannie. They also had two handsome sons; Richard and David. They have eight grandchildren and seven great-grand children.

During their married life of 68 plus years they traveled extensively, not only throughout the 50 states but also to

Australia, New Zealand, England, Ireland, Scotland, The Caribbean, South Sea Islands, France, Italy, Switzerland and Egypt.

Effie was very interested in portrait painting and she was also active in singing in the church choir.

Eugene and Effie started up a very successful welding equipment repair company serving the San Francisco bay area. They were known as the "The Best in the West" by their customers.

After being married for 68 years it will be difficult for Eugene to imagine what life will be like without this wonderful, loving, cheerful, vivacious, inspirational, warm, green eyed, beautiful woman by his side and he looks forward to seeing her again in heaven and hearing her sing those wonderful hymns again.

Effie was what you may call an evangelical born again Christian. For those who may not know what the term "a born again Christian means" it is a warm feeling of love to God and Christ to their teachings delivered to us through the Holy Ghost. It is not just living a good life or going to church every Sunday or saying our prayers every night. It is a feeling of warmth inside yourself that controls everything that you do and think and when it does this you will know that you will someday walk with all the souls that have gone on before you.

Her happiest moments, outside of being with her family, was talking about Christianity, singing hymens and living to the best of her ability to do so.

The photo above is Eugene and Effie McCallum enjoying their years of life together as always in their 1955 Ford Thunderbird. They said that they have one on order in heaven.
