Biography

Birth3 May 1787James S. Herrick was born on 3 May 1787 in New York.1
Marriage9 June 1807He and Jane Diddy were married on 9 June 18072,3
Marriage5 November 1815He and Martha "Patty" Sharpsteen were married on 5 November 1815 in New York2
Relocation1823In 1823, James S. Herrick moved to Maumee, Lucas County, Ohio. from New York state. [HK: Unverified information from an online discussion group: ". His occupation was that of a blacksmith and the family moved around a lot. I found him in Allegany, Ontario & Livingston Cos. in NY, as well as Wood Co., Ohio where he settled briefly in Maumee & Waterville beginning in 1822. Some of his children stayed in Ohio when James went back to NY and they started a branch of the Herrick family in the area." It is interesting that on the 1900 and 1910 censuses for R. H. Pratt, Mary's birthplace is listed as Ohio. Also in the 1870 census, her son Seth's birthplace is listed as Ohio. The later two references to Ohio may have been due to the fact that she lived near her brothers in Ohio in her older years.]4
Relocationbetween 1826 and 1835Between 1826 and 1835, James S. Herrick moved to Livingston County, New York.4
Probate Record8 March 1826James was listed in probate records on 8 March 1826 in Wood County, Ohio, as follows: as Bondsman, with Guy Nearing, for John Eastman, Dec. Administrators docket, vols. A-B 1821-1852 Administrators docket, vols. l-2 1852-1885 Guardian docket, vol. 1 1852-1879
DGS 008/704592. familysearch records for Wood County.
Census1840He appeared in the census 1840 in Rushford, Allegany County, New York. James is listed as: J.S. Herrick, 1 male 5-9, 1 male 50-60, 2 females under 5, 1 female 10-14, 1 female 40-50. Neighbors, Wm. Thomas, S. Wiley, R. Moore, C. Richardson, V. Kelley. Most likely these are Luther, James, Sarah Ellen and Lydia, Hannah, and Martha. So Mary was probably already married, assuming she married before March of that year, because Richard Henry was born in December.5
Residence1846As of 1846 James lived in Rushford, Allegany County, New York, In the 1846 edition of the Herrick Genealogy, p. 20., James' listing is: Rushford, Allegany Co., five sons, four daughters. However, by the 1850 census he is in Michigan, and his daughter Catharine, who was born in May, 1846, is listed as born in Michigan, so he must have moved early in 1846.

The Library of Congress landowners map of Allegany County is dated 1856, so James had already moved to Michigan by the date of this map, but the map is very useful.6
Census8 August 1850He appeared in the census 8 August 1850 in Washington, Macomb County, Michigan. James is listed as: Listed as James G. (age 63, Blacksmith, born in New York) with
Martha (50, born in New York),
Luther (19, Farmer, born in New York, married within the year),
Lucy (21, born in Vt -- this must be Luther's wife),
Sarah E. (15, born in NY, attending school),
Ann L. (12, born NY, attending school -- this must be Lydia Ann),
Ann E. (10, born in NY, attending school),
Albert O. (9, born in NY, attending school),
Catharine (4, born in Michigan),
LeRoy (4 months, born in Michigan -- must be Luther's first), and
Polly Sharpsteen (70, born in NY -- this is the mother of James' second wife Martha).7
Death22 February 1857He died on 22 February 1857 in Columbus, St. Clair County, Michigan,8
Burial24 February 1857He was buried on 24 February 1857 at Kittridge Cemetery in Columbus, St. Clair County, Michigan.

Herrick came to Swanton in 1834; first settled on the West half of Southeast quarter of Section 6 ; and afterwards on the North half of Southwest quarter of Section 7, where he erected and kept a public house the most of the time until 1869. His first wife died before 1840, and he was remarried within a short time. For a few years he worked at the trade of a Blacksmith, a part of the time. Later he manufactured barrels. About 1860 he purchased a stock of goods and kept a country store. In many respects he was a genial and accommodating neighbor. By his first wife he had two daughters. The elder (Amanda) was married with Frederick S. Allen, who died in 1863, from the effects of a fall, caused by the giving way of a scaffolding used in erecting an Elevator building in Toledo. The younger daughter (Armarilla) was married with A. B. Wales. Both now reside in Toledo. W. D. Herrick died in February, 1869. His wife (Laura) died in March, 1888.3
Biography1910In 1910: "In the spring of 1834 Chandler L. Wing built a log house on the west bank of Swan creek, on the southeast quarter of section 7, which was the first dwelling in the township....Within a year after he settled on Swan creek, he was followed by Huntington Larabee, William D. Herrick, David Mills, Philo B. Scott, William J. Ketcham, David Clute, Edward and Harvey S. Flint and a few others, who began the work of reclaiming the land from the wilderness....

William D. Herrick came to the township in 1834 and settled on the west half of the southeast quarter of section 6, and later removed to the north half of the southwest quarter of section 7, where he kept a public house for many years. He also worked at the blacksmith's trade and manufactured barrels. About 1860 he opened a country store. He served for eleven years as trustee of the township, being elected to that office first in 1838, and the last time in 1865.

Biography

Research NoteOn Mary Herrick's handwritten list, this looks like Eliza at first glance, but it appears that she wrote a straight line over the "z" to make a "j" and that letter is dotted, so I think she was writing "Elija".1
Birth12 December 1809Elijah Herrick was born on 12 December 1809 in Stillwater, Saratoga County, New York. (Birthplace given in email from Fulton County Genweb Coordinator. I don't know the source.)2,3,4
Residence1823As of 1823 Elijah lived in Maumee, Lucas County, Ohio. "Elijah Herrick, 1823, Swanton."

He was a member of the Maumee Valley Pioneer Association, and his date of arrival in the Valley and place of first settlement were recorded as 1823, at Swanton.

He was also a member of the Maumee Valley Monumental Association. This association lists his settlement as 1822, in Fulton County.

I believe this listing refers to Elijah the son of James S. because the biographical entry of his younger brother Calvin says " Here young Herrick [Calvin] remained until 16 years of age, when he came to Perrysburg, and assisted his brother Elijah...". Elijah, being a son of James' first wife, was 10 years older than Calvin.5
Marriage11 September 1831He and Orra Sophronia Nobel were married on 11 September 1831 in Waterville, Ohio,4
Anecdote18331833: Elijah was one of the men who assisted Mahlon Meeker with his house raising, supposedly the first in Plain Township. "Early in the evening, they began to arrive by the Indian trail in ones, twos and fours until sixteen had arrived. By the first light next morning they were at work, and now as this was the first systematic house raising in Plain township, we subjoin the names of the party as near as Mr. Meeker can recollect: Elijah Herrick, Guy Nearing, Michael Sypher, John Whitehead, John Howard, Epaphroditus Foote, Jesse Decker, Levi Decker, Moses Decker, Nathaniel Decker, James Spafford, Eber Wilson, Charles Wilson, Johnston White."6

Biography19 February 1892On 19 February 1892: On 19 February 1892: Elijah Herrick was born in Stillwater, Saratoga Co., New York December 12th
1809. In 1822 he came with his father to the present vicinity of Waterville on the
Maumee, owing to the unhealthiness of the climate his father soon returned to New
York leaving Elijah and his brother William behind. He worked for a short time
across the river from Waterville and among other things made 4,000 rails at 80
cents per hundred. He also worked at blacksmithing and made the ironworks for
the sailing vessel Antelope built by Daniel Hubble. When about twenty years old
he kept bachelors hall and raised corn on the big flats near Turkey Foot Rock.
In 1831 he was married to Orra Sophronia Noble by whom he had four children,
one of which, a daughter, was living at the time of his death.
He now bought teams and went to teaming, moving many pioneers into the
woods.
In 1836 he moved to Perrysburg and took a contract to haul goods for John
Hollister, taking the most of them up the river to Defiance and Fort Wayne. One
time Asa Miller had goods frozen in at Manhattan which he wished to take to Fort
Wayne, they loaded two teams and Mr. Miller tacking an ax went with them, they
were thirteen days chopping their way through and five days coming back, for
which Mr. Herrick received $100.00 Mr. Miller bearing all the expenses. He also
hauled the first load of goods from the Maumee to Adrian Michigan unloading
them in a log cabin which had a blanket hanging up for a door.
In 1841 he moved to Miami and with his partner established the first line of boats
on the canal between Toledo and Providence. In 1843 his wife died and in 1844
he was married to Abigail Allen to whom five children were born. They lived for a
few weeks at Perrysburg, and came the same year (1844) to the present
homestead in Fulton Township, Fulton Co. When he came to Fulton Co., it also
was very new with a small clearing here and there but he in common with the other
pioneers soon brought it to a good state of cultivation.
Mr. Herrickā€™s school advantages of course were limited but having obtained the
rudiments of an education he was able by his superior natural ability to make up
for the deficiency of early mental training. He held a number of offices and among
others was Justice of the Peace for twelve years.
His was a long and eventful life for a private one, and the period of time over which
the years of his life extended, saw wonderful changes in the physical, and
industrial , social and intellectual life of the county. When he came a boy of twelve
years to the Maumee he found it a vast wilderness abounding in swamp and full of
malaria, he lived to see it cleared drained and made as productive and healthy as
any place in the country. When he came he found it inhabited mostly by Indians, he
lived to see it peopled by persons of the highest intelligence and morality. He
found the country with scarcely any educational or religious advantages, he lived to
see it well provided with schools and churches. In the beginning of his life the best
moods of travel were the stage couch and canal packets at its close we have the
swift steam and electric car and the speediest means of communications was the
fast boy now we talk face to face be the distance long or short by means of the
telegraph and the telephone and _____ ? it is not to much to say that he did his
part to bring about these privileges and blessings.
Several years ago under the pastorate of Rev S. L. Klotzs he united with the
United Brethren Church and in hope of the eternal life, died July 31, 1891, at his
home in Fulton Township Fulton Co., Ohio.
Written by his Son in law Rev. Lucius E. Willson, Feb 19th 1892
Lucius was married to Anna Herrick, Elijah's daughter with his 2nd wife Abigail44
