Chapter Six, Generation Six, Part Three

192. Sophia6 KILTS <See pg. 38> (Johannes5, Johann4, Johann3, Johann2, Hanss1) was born 13 Nov 1829 in Sharon, Schoharie Co., NY, USA, and was christened in Sharon, Schoharie Co., NY, USA. She was the daughter of Johannes Biggs KILTS and Elizabeth SMITH. Sophia died 8 May 1918 in Sharon, Montgomery Co., NY, USA, and was buried 11 May 1918 in Sharon, Schoharie Co., NY, USA.

NOTES for Sophia:

REFERENCE: THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY KILTS FAMILY OF THE MOHAWK VALLEY, David Kendall Martin, 1985.

j. Sophia Kilts born 13 November 1829, married Daniel D. Shafer, had (Stam): Elena Shafer 23 April 1853, living Sharon Hill 1941, married 14 February 1871 John Henry Stam born 12 May 1853, died 18 November 1921.

Wellington Shafer 19 February 1858, died 27 June 1945.

Loretta Shafer. David Kendall Martin is in error in his listing of the above children as the only children of Daniel and Sophia, my great grandparents. They had two more children. (Also, he has the birth order of the children incorrect. Loretta was born before Wellington.) My mother, Florence Z. (Shafer) Witthoft was very disturbed about this inaccuacy appearing in the Kilts book as she had given much time and energy providing David Kendall Martin with Kilts data.

Other children not listed by DKM are:

4. Manillious, b. 4 August 1856, d. 9 March 1857.
5. Daniel D., b. 2 May 1860, d. 6 April 1925.

BAPTISM: Reformed Church, T-Sharon, Schoharie Co., NY USA.

DEATH: Argusville. Was she living with her son Wellington on his farm? If so, place of death is Argusville, Town of Root, Montgomery Co., NY USA.

BURIAL: Slate Hill Cemetery, T-Sharon, Schoharie Co., NY USA.

NOTE: (HWW) In a family letter written by my mother, Florence (Shafer) Witthoft to her children, dated Wednesday, 21 January 1970: (She was talking about the Kilts farms located on the Sharon Hill to Argusville Road.) That stretch of road from "John's farm", (the property that I, Herman Witthoft, remember as the "John Kilts farm"), to the next sharp turn should have been called Kilts Road. All four of Adam Kilts' sons settled there as did three or four grandsons. The "John" in the term "John's farm" was John Kilts, your Grandpa Shafer's cousin, who left the farm to Grandpa when John died. There is a tradition that John's father cheated my great-grandmother Shafer out of what should have been hers when my grandfather died in Illinois.

(This is the first time that I remember hearing about this "tradition". I wish that I knew more about it, but all the principals are deceased now. Herman Witthoft, 25 February 1999)

She married Daniel D. SHAFER 11 Sep 1851 in Cobleskill, Schoharie Co., NY, USA. He was born 21 May 1822 in Cobleskill, Schoharie Co., NY, USA, and was christened 1822 in Schoharie, Schoharie Co., NY, USA. He was the son of Barney (Barent) SHAFER and Polly (Voland) FOLAND. Daniel died 13 Feb 1860 in Mt. Pleasant, Whiteside Co., IL, USA, and was buried 16 Feb 1860 in Mt. Pleasant, Whiteside Co., IL, USA.

NOTES for Daniel:

BAPTISM: Recorded: Reformed Church, T-Schoharie, Schoharie Co., NY USA, in the personal records of Rev. John Daniel Shafer, Pastor. Parents: "Barend Shafer, Polly, his wife". Sponsors: "F and M".

CENSUS: 1855 NYS. Copied from the Cady records and also from original xerox:

1855 Carlisle Census

(Page 133)


DEATH: Town of Mt. Pleasant, Whiteside Co., IL USA. (His cause of death is unknown. Henry Lyker thinks he was probably killed in a horse accident. Herman Witthoft had the obituaries for that time period searched in the records of the Secretary of State, State of Illinois, but there was no obituary according to their search.)

BURIAL: Heaton Cemetery, Section 4, Ward Road, Town of Mt. Pleasant, Whiteside Co., IL USA. There is also a headstone erected by his granddaughter, Florence Zula (Shafer) Witthoft in the Slate Hill Cemetery, Sharon, Schoharie Co., NY, because his burial place and his son's, Manillious, was unknown until we received information on 8 December 1992 from Marilyn Anderson: 610 Locust St., Apartment B, Sterling, IL 61081, Tel: 815-625-2461.

TOMBSTONE: "Daniel D. Shaver died Feb. 13, 1860 Aged 38 ys. 3 ms. and 8 ds."

DOCUMENTATION: GREAT NEWS! LOCATION OF DANIEL'S BURIAL SITE DISCOVERED!

Letter from Marilyn Anderson, quoted in part: On the mortality schedule for 1860 Daniel D. Shaver is listed as 43 years, married, from New York, a farmer who passed away in February. Daniel and Manillious are buried with another conflict on Manillious as the cemetery record says he was six years old. They are buried in Heaton Cemetery which I have mapped for you. It is on Ward Road where the X is approximately.

The Heaton Cemetery is a very small cemetery on land originally owned by the Heaton Family, one of the first to come to Whiteside County. It is fenced in and very well kept. The first death in Mt. Pleasant was that of James Heaton in 1836. I wonder if this family has a connection with your family as it seems to be such a small private cemetery. I will try to find more on the Heatons.

It lists Daniel and Manillious in Section 4 of the Cemetery as follows: Daniel D. Shaver died February 13, 1860 at 38 years and Manillious, son of Daniel D. and S. Shaver who died 9 March 1857 at age 6 years. (Herman and his sister, Florence, along with their spouses later visited the cemetery and it says of his age: "7 ms. & 5 ds." HWW).

I hope this is some help to you. If you have further help needed, please contact me. If I run into anymore information I will send it on to you. If you ever make a trip to Whiteside I would be very happy to meet you at our Library to show you what information we have and show you how to get to the cemetery.

Please let me know if I have been of help to you.

NOTE: Daniel's wife, Sophia Kilts Shafer is not listed in the 1860 USA Census so she must have moved prior to the taking of the 1860 Census, 17-20 July 1860, Town of Mt. Pleasant, Whiteside Co., IL USA. Henry Lyker says that someone from NY went out to get her with a horse and cutter, but she wouldn't make the trip back to New York in the middle of the winter because she was pregnant with Daniel D. Shafer, born 2 May 1860. She must have left there between 2 May 1860 and 16 July 1860, the day before the census was started. She didn't return directly to New York, but went to Chicago and stayed with a relative for a time. (See below copy of a letter from Mrs. Elizabeth K. Tarpening.) She did return by railroad train to Sharon, NY, and lived with her Kilts relatives on the Sharon Hill to Argusville Road.

LETTER: From Mrs. Elizabeth K. Tarpening, 4628 Lake Park Ave. Apt 2, Chicago, Illinois, to Wellington Shafer:

Dear unknown cousin, 27 December 1926 Just a few lines. If I was to meet you on the street I would not know you and you would not know me. At the same time I claim you as a my Dear cousin and Hallena (Elena), (The word 'and' is erased.) "Loretta, Wellington, and Daniel the same.

What I want to say, I take the Cobleskill Times and I saw the account of cousin Johnies Kilts' death. It broke me all up. Next I got a letter from Lulu - Mrs. Benedict - telling me you were there looking for my address. It is 4628 Lake Park Ave. We moved the first of Oct. in an apartment. How well I remember my Dear Auntie Sophia and how I loved her - your Dear Mother. Now I shed TEARS when she came East with her little family. She was at our house quite a little bit. I was a very little girl. Now I have passed my eightyth birthday. Am in my eighty-first year.

(Page 134)


Wellington, if I understand, Johnie had a Bible with the family record of two or three generations. I would like to have a copy of it. Johnies' father had it - my uncle Conrad Kilts. I have got part of it. There is a distant relative here in Chicago. His father was a nephew of Joshua Kilts. His name is Stanton Kilts. Ed Kilts, Daniel Kiltls' son, can tell you who I mean. He asked my daughter Rena if he didn't come in as one of the heirs.

You must excuse all mistakes. Will close with best wishes for the New Year. Signed: Elizabeth K. Tarpening

This is the first reference I've seen to Daniel other than his birth, etc., in Illinois. He later went to California and died there. Florence Hulsizer has two letters that he wrote from California to his mother Sophia (Kilts) Shafer. Henry Lyker remarked to Herman Witthoft, that he remembers Daniel's brother Wellington, our grandfather, remarking that when Daniel died, Wellington said: "My brother Daniel died and I never really knew him!"
I never remember my mother, Florence Zula (Shafer) Witthoft, speaking of him. (Herman Witthoft)

In going over the Kent Co. death records I came across a Jane Kilts, 1805-1869, born in New York. Her parents were listed as Henry Hill and Mary Hill of Nelson Twp., Kent Co., MI.

I'm thinking she is probably Peter's wife, but it would seem like she should be on your 1850 census records along with Peter. I'm not sure how to connect her. The older Nicholas is the only one in our area the same age other then Peter, unless Nicholas took on a second wife, but none of the census records show that. Or Peter got married after coming to Michigan?"
