2757 Joseph Tilson, b. Aug. 3, 1808, in Hartford, Me.
Mrs. Hannah Tilson d. in Hartford, Me., Feb. 8, 1811. Joseph
Tilson and wife soon after marriage went to Hartford, Me., which
was then comparatively a wild country. (Incorporated a town, 171)8.)
He purchased one hundred acres of land in the north part of Hartford,
being a part of the "Thompson Grant." In March, 1811, he bought
17 acres, and in May of same year, 51 acres. In the fall of 1811, with
five little children from three to eight years of age, (motherless), he
moved with a two horse wagon to Halifax, Mass. *With others, he en-
gaged in getting iron ore in Jones Eiver Pond (Silver Lake), at what
i^ known at Peterson Cove in Pembroke, Mass., and in other places.
He m. 2d Betsey Everson of Kingston, Mass., May 22, 1815. In the
fall of 1817 in company with other families from Halifax, he m^o^ed
to Marietta, Ohio, going with horse and wagon, there being no other
conveyance in those days. He left the two sons in Halifax, taking
the three daughters with him. He purchased a farm about three
miles west of Marietta, (owned in 1895 by Kaylor), where he died
(from falling on the ice at the doorstep), March 27, 1849. Mrs.
*In 1751, a century from building of first Iron Works, Joseph Holmes, fish-
ing in Jones River Pond, Kingston, Mass., caught ore on his hook. The bed was
worked and produced three thousand tons, some of which formed balls for
Washington's Artillery. The ore was usually loose on the bottom of the
Pond. A man with a sort of oyster tonsr.s could get half a ton in a day,
which made 250 lbs. of good iron, worth in the rough state about $3.00. The
first cast iron tea kettle was made in C.irver, Mass., in 1670.

Betsey Tilson died, 1850, both are buried in West Marietta cemetery.
My fatiier never knew anytiiing about his sisters after they left
Halifax, Mass. In 1895 I visited Marietta, hoping to get some trace
of my three aunts. I found on record Eliza Tilson, m. Levi Clark,
March 30, 1825. Was informed that a little Clark child lived with
my grandfather. This was as far as I could trace, so I concluded the
mother soon died. I visited the old home place, drank water from
the spring that my grandfather drank from more than seventy-five
years ago. In May, 1897, on my way from New Orleans, La., to
Massachusetts, I again visited Marietta, and succeeded in finding Mrs.
Martha A. Clark, the child referred to above, from whom I got some
history of the aunts that we had not known about for eighty years.
