Subscribed in the presence of me.  April 12, 1845 (indecipherable) E.L.Clerk

Sarah Ferrell was appointed Executrix of Obediah's Will, with a bond of $700.00 and securities recorded as John Musser and Hugh Davis.  Nicholas Masters, Joseph Pollock and James Short appointed to appraise his personal property.  Sarah died before the final accounting.  Thereafter John and Obediah Jr. were appointed Administrators of Obediah's Estate.  His personal estate was appraised on November 23rd, 1847, and in keeping with Court Order was sold in December, 1847.  
The appraisal suggests a comfortable standard of living, with six beds, bed curtains, window curtains, silver pieces, an "Ambose" Bible, 2 hymnals and other books, a clock, a lot of wool yarn, many hogs, horses, cattle, a hive of bees,  table linens, two spinning wheels, two waggons and one carriage, two fanning mills, and a 'rifle gunn,' as well as much corn, hay, oats, and 14 acres of wheat in the ground.  Obediah Jr, bought most of the goods, with Sarah also buying a considerable number of items appropriate to a widow.  Son Lance Ferrell bought the 'rifle gunn'.  Four individuals owed him notes, probably for farm goods delivered.

No final accounting or distribution of assets could be found.

According to the History of Ashland Co.,  G.W. Hill, M.D., pub. 1880, the first organized congregation of a religious society was within the present limits of Montgomery township, composed largely of the residents of Milton Twp.   This listing was under 'Presbyterian'.   It was organized by the settlers of 1815-1816 who were descendants of the Scotch-Irish, mostly from western Pennsylvania.  Among the first 43 members was Obediah Ferrell.  In 1819 a hewn log church, 35x30 feet, was erected 1 1/2 miles west of Uniontown, now Ashland, on what is now the Olivesburg Road. " They had two excellent singers, who were chosen to conduct the music.  They were stationed near the pulpit, on  a platform, where they read two lines of a psalm or hymn, and sang, and the congregation joining as the leaders proceeded to read and sing."  These services - reading and singing, and preaching - began about ten o'clock in the forenoon, and continued until about twelve o'clock, when there was a  recess, after which the services were renewed for one or two hours....  It was not uncommon at that period, for members and others to ride or walk three or four miles, along the forest paths, to attend day and evening meetings."

     20     x.     Jackson Ferrell, born 1817 in Richland Co., Ohio; died December 05, 1879 in Richland Co., Ohio.

Notes for Jackson Ferrell:
For further research:  There is a Jackson Ferrell who appears in a collection of lawyer's papers in the archives of West Virginia.  It has to do with a bill for transportation on the Ohio River in 1855.  The company was Donelly and sons.

Jackson Ferrell worked for the Ohio R. Company when he died of consumption on Dec. 5, 1879, at age 63.  He was single, lived in Rome, Ohio.   Record of Deaths, Vol. 1, 1867-1890. LDS Film #0,398,733, page 164, says he was a farmer by occupation.

An entry in the Final Accounting for the Estate of his brother Peter, dated August 30, 1879, show receipt of $40.00 from the Estate of J. Ferrell.  This could only be from Jackson's Estate if one of these dates is wrong.

     21     xi.     Obediah Ferrell, born Abt. 1815 in Pennsylvania; died Bef. 1876.

Notes for Obediah Ferrell:
Census for Milton Twp., Richland Co., Ohio shows him living with brother Washington Ferrell, Elizabeth (Washington's wife) and Lydia Berlin, (Washington's mother-in-law). Dob for Obediah is 1815, place is Pennsylvania.  He is a cooper.

An entry into the Final Accounting for the Estate of his brother Peter shows receipt of $413.25 on April 13, 1876, from the Estate of O. Ferrell.  If Obediah died intestate and without heirs this would be his brother's legacy according to law.  It would establish Obediah's death at before April 13, 1876.


     4.  Samuel2 Lance (Peter1) was born November 08, 1794, and died 1878 in Beaver Co., Pa..  He married Lydia Jane Brubaker April 1843 in Richland Co., Ohio.  She was born 1810, and died April 01, 1892 in Beaver Co., Pa..

Samuel had moved to Hanover Township, Beaver County, after 1830 and before 1840.  His oldest two sons, John and James were born in Ohio.  He had four children.  None of them ever married, therefore he has no known descendants.  The four children, Samuel and his wife Lydia are all buried together in Mount Olivit Presbyterian Cemetery, Hopewell Township, Beaver County, Pa.

Abraham was the last descendant to die.  His Will left his estate to all living descendants of Samuel's three brothers, Christopher, Abraham and Peter.

     8.  Abraham2 Lance (Peter1) was born 1796 in Beaver Co., Pa., and died April 06, 1886 in Beaver Co., Pa..  He married Mary Magdalena Strauss.  She was born October 12, 1795, and died February 23, 1860 in Beaver Co., Pa..

Notes for Abraham Lance:
From compilation by Becky Gilmore and Jerilyn Schabacker.

Abraham had moved to Hanover Township, Beaver County, Pa., sometime after 1820 and before 1840.  He was a farmer and had four known children.  Two, Simon and Sarah, died as children.  Elizabeth was the only child who had children.  She had one son, Abraham Lance Latham.

Simon and Sarah are buried with their mother.  Abraham, his two daughters, and one son-in-law are all buried together.  After the Civil War sentiments ran very high regarding how the people of the South should be treated.  Abraham had a falling-out with whomever owned the cemetery where Simon, Sarah and his wife were buried.  Therefore he started his own cemetery.  Since that time the two cemeteries have been combined forming the Hopewell-Hebron Cemetery.  Simon, Sarah and Mary Magdalina are buried on one hill.  The tombstones are in very poor condition.  Abraham, his two daughters and son-in-law are buried on another hill.  A small valley separates the two hills.  It is obvious that they were separate at one time.  This information was written by Abraham Lance Latham to a family member sometime ago.

Notes for Mary Magdalena Strauss:
A note on the papers of Barbara Lance "A question might arise in your mind as to why my grandmother is not buried by my grandfather.  During the Civil War feeling bacame so strong betwen Republicans and Democrats that she latter left old Hopewell church and built Hebron.  My grandmother was already departed (I think about 1860) and buried in Hopewell and I did not remove her."

Notes for Peter Lance:
Peter's first wife was Martha Strouss, according to some family records.  It is believed that Martha possibly was the mother of Peter's first four children: Henry T, Elizabeth S, Mary, and Abraham.  Until further proof is found this marriage is herein recorded in Notes for further research.  No records have been found for either marriage of Peter.

Notes for Jane Nicholson:
Files from other Lance family members show a birth date for Jane Nicholson, 1812.  If her first daughter,  Elizabeth, was born in 1821 (March 22), as those same records show, then she was 11 years old at that time.  I have chosen to list the children's birth dates as recorded on those files, and to further research a date of birth for Jane.  Probably was born 1802.
