270 HISTORY OF DURHAM

Ezekiel Turner married, 12 Jan. 1792, Joanna, dau. of Vin-
cent and Susanna (York) Roberts. He was drowned while
mackerel-catching- at age of about 55 yrs. Joanna (Roberts)
Turner was a woman of remarkable character. She was born
1 Oct. 1773- Ihe date on her tombstone is earlier than this,
but it is an error. She had fifteen children. Her home was not
far from the Stone Mill. She possessed a deeply religious nature.
Her faith is illustrated in her daily prayer for twenty years that
her son William, supposed to have been lost at sea, might yet
return to her. One day he walked in with thrilling adventures
to tell of life among the islands of the sea and of hair-breadth
escapes from cannibals, etc. One night, when her husband was
away, the wolves surrounded her cabin. The watch-dog became
so furious that he had to be released and was torn in pieces by
the pack.

Notwithstanding scanty means she was generous in feeding
the hungry and caring for orphans. She remembered the prayer-
meeting on Hezekiah Gerrish's hill, when she separated from
her brother, the Rev. Daniel Roberts, elsewhere mentioned in
this History.

She married (2) 2 Sept. 1824, Samuel Sawyer. Her death
occurred 27 Mch. 1858. Her children, all by first marriage, who
grew up were :

Lemuel m. (i) 22 Jan. 1815 Mary Wormell; (2) 1830 Olive Sawyer.

dren born in Barrington, N. H. He moved to Royalsborough
in 1780. He was a farmer and blacksmith. While in N. H.
the patriots annoyed him by tlieir demands on his skill for the
repair of the locks of their muskets, the fitting of bayonets and
the making of swords, all of which were in opposition to his con-
victions against war and its concomitants, he being a member of
the Society of Friends. So he sold out such of his possessions
as could not be moved, and embarked with the rest of his family
in a coaster. They disembarked at Mast Landing, Freeport.
He drove a flock of sheep through the woods to his new abode
on Lot 2. He died 20 Jan. 1814. His wife died 28 Jan. 1828.

272 HISTORY OF DURHAM

1764 Mary, dau. of Edward and Patience (Carr) Estes. After
living a few years in Falmouth he purchased, in 1782, lot No. 17
of Stephen Hart in Royalsborough. Hart's buildings had just
been burned and Varney built his house on the hill southwest of
John Varney 's blacksmith-shop. The house is now occupied by
his great-grandson, George E. Varney.

He belonged to the Society of F"riends, and their rules pro-
hibited any active part in war. They protested against all taxes,
any part of which was to meet war expenses. Since it was
impossible to discriminate in tax-bills what portion was for war,
some of the Friends refused to pay any taxes at all. When the
collector of Royalsborough called on Nicholas Varney, he per-
sistently refused payment of the amount assessed upon him.
Consequently the sheriff came and seized a new milch-cow, and
sought also to take away her young calf with her. The boys,
unterrified by the officer's badge and ignoring the spirit of the
Quaker principle of non-resistance, mixed those calves up so
that the officer was unable to decide which was the right one;
and finding it difficult to catch and impossible to drive any one,
he went away with the cow alone. The animal was sold, and the
next time the officer came that way he brought the balance of
the sale money remaining after the deduction of the tax-bill.
Neither husband nor wife would touch the polluted currency, and
the officer could relieve himself of the responsibility for the
money only by laying it upon the high shelf at a corner of the
room. There the money remained untouched for many months.
When the next year the officer came round for another collection,
his demand was met only by an allusion to what he had done
the previous year and the statement that the money he had
placed on the shelf then was still there. The officer found it so
and withdrawing from it the amount required, returned the bal-
ance to its former position. It proved sufficient for the third
year also.

The family of Nicholas Varney is here given.
