From: Sketch of theEarly History of Capemay County
" Aaron Leaming (the first), of the County of Cape May, de
parted this life at Philadelphia, of a pleurisie, on the 20th June, 1746, about five o'clock in the afternoon. He was born at Sag, near Easthampton, on Long Island, Oct. 12th, 1687, being the son of Christopher Leamyeng (as he spelt his name), an Englishman, and Hester his wife, whose maiden name was Burnet, and was born in New England. Christopher Leamyeng owned a lot at Easthampton, but he came to Cape May, being a cooper, and stayed several years and worked at his trade; and about 1695-6 he died at Cape May, and his land fell to Thomas Leamyeng, his eldest son; the rest was left poor." 
LEAMING, Aaron (I162)
 
2 (Medical):From second Aaron Leaming's manuscript:-
" My father's father, Christopher Leaming, was an Englishman, and came to America in 1670, and landed near or at Boston; thence to East Hampton. There he lived till about the year 1691, and then leaving his family at Long Island, he came himself to Cape May, which, at that time, was a new county, and beginning to settle very fast, and seemed to promise good advantages to the adventurers. Here he went to whaling in the proper season, and at other times worked at the cooper's trade, which was his occupation, and good at the time by reason of the great number of whales caught in those days, made the demand and pay for casks certain.
He died of a pleurisie in 1696. His remains were interred at the place called Cape May Town, was situated next above now New England Town Creek, and contained about thirteen houses; but, on the failure of the whale fishery in Delaware Bay, it dwindled into common farms, and the grave-yard is on the plantation now owned by Ebenezer Newton. At the first settlement of the county, the chief whaling was in Delaware Bay, and that occasioned the town to be built there; but there has not been one house in that town since my remembrance. In 1734 I saw the graves; Samuel Eldredge showed them to me. They were then about fifty rods from the Bay, and the sand was blown to them. The town was between them and the water. There were then some signs of the ruin of the houses. I never saw any East India tea till 1735. It was the Presbyterian parsons, the followers of Whitefield, that brought it into use at Cape May, about the year 1744-5-6; and now it impoverisheth the country."
" Aaron Leaming (the first), of the County of Cape May, departed this life at Philadelphia, of a pleurisie, on the 20th June, 1746, about five o'clock in the afternoon.

John Howland is believed to be the son of Henry and Margaret Howland of Fenstanton, England. One of four sons of Henry and Margaret, his brothers Humphrey and Simon and Arthur went to London and became merchants. The 4th son, Henry and sister Margaret, little is know of them.




John sought his fortune in the "New World" and was a member of the first voyage of the Mayflower. The Mayflower landing at Plymouth Rock in current Massachusetts was by chance, they were headed to Jamestown in Virginia to join the colonists there but ran out of beer!




John Howland traveled on the Mayflower as a servant to John Carver and his family. John Howland was released from servitutde upon the death of John Carver in 1621.




As a freeman of Plymouth in 1633 he served the colony in several important capacities, including assistant governor, deputy and as head of the Kennebec trading post. John's wife Elizabeth Tilley became an orphan after that first bitter winter and they became married in 1623. They would become the parents of 10 children.

Wealthy Olivia Sandlin was the first born daughter into the pioneering Sandlin family,in the territory of Florida.She was born June 30,1936 into the family of Robert and Zilpha Hicks Sandlin who were true pioneer settlers of the territory of Florida. Her parents were married in Camden County,Ga on Dec 22,1822.Before coming to Florida they had one son Jesse Robert Sandlin who was born in Camden County ,Georgia in 1824.When they come to territory of Florida in 1826 they first settled on lands in what was then Alachua County Florida. According to the 1830 territorial census Robert and his family are living near the Sundance River and the St Mary's River which was near Blounts Ferry,Florida .While living here they have their second child ,James Lucas Sandlin born Feb 24 1830. Though-out the 1830's and 1840's Robert Sandlin is acquiring properties in and around Columbia County while at the same time protecting his property and family from Indian raids and attacks.Beginning in 1835 the Seminole Indian Wars break out and Robert Sandlin serves in the Florida Militia as Captain of his own company .Lasting until 1842,the Indian wars were a constant threat to Robert Sandlin and his fellow pioneer settlers,however the family was able to persevere because during this period Wealthy Sandlin's other siblings are born Henry W.in 1838, Wiley D.in 1840,Elizabeth in 1842,Zipha in 1843 and William Yulee in 1851.Florida becomes a state in 1845.On Sept. 1 1856 Robert Sandlin is given a land grant by the newly formed State of Florida of 160.66 acres,for his service in the Seminole Indian Wars.Being a part of the American south and part of the way of life in those days Robert kept slaves to help him farm his plantation. In the 1850 US Federal Census we find Robert at home with his family on the Sandlin homestead less than a mile from the banks of the Suwanee River.Living with him in 1850 is his newlywed daughter Wealthy Olivia Sandlin and her husband Jesse Turner.Wealthy Sandlin was only 14 when she marries Jesse Turner Oct 25 1850 which was common in those days.Wealthy and her husband Jesse have a total of four children.Their children in order of birth are as fillows..

1-Jessie Robert Turner Jr born Oct 31 1851.Jessie Robert dies at the young age of 22 on Oct 10 1874 and is the first Turner to be buried near his Grand parents Robert and Zilpha Sandlin in the then Sandlin family enclosure at Hopewell.

2--Caroline E.Turner born Oct. 13, 1856,she married Wiley Lee Cheshire on Nov 3,1875.Carrie died May 15, 1919,she is buried at Hopewell in the Sandlin/Turner enclosure.

3-Nathaniel Elonzo Turner born Mar 28 1859,he marries Mary Catherine Cone Smith or(Mollie) on Jan 8, 1880.Nathaniel dies fairly young at the age of 42 on Jun 16 1901,Leaving his widow Mollie Turner to take care of their eleven children.Mollie and her husband Nathaniel are buried at Prospect Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery in Hamilton,County ,Fl.

4-Daniel Kinsey Turner born Jan 16 1861,he marries Georgia Florida Johns on May 3,1885,they move to Lakeland ,Polk County Florida.Daniel dies on Jun 23,1939.Both Daniel and is wife Georgia are buried at Lakeview Cemetery in Lakeland Florida.

When the Civil War breaks out Wealthy's husband Jesse Turner enlists as a third Lieutenant in Company D,9th Florida Regiment on Oct 6 1862. Because of an unknown reason in July of 1863 Jesse Turner is forced to submit his resignation.His Resignation is accepted and he is musted out of his unit at Camp Finegan in Tallahassee Florida on July 10,1863.He returns home to Benton and serves in Captain James L King's Company,Home Guard(or reserves) until the end of the war.Jesse Turner dies May 1 ,1898 and is buried next to his son Jessie Robert Turner Jr in the Sandlin/Turner enclosure at Hopewell.On Jan 8,1904 Wealthy applies for a widows pension for her husbands Jesse's service in the Civil War and the Home Guard,about a year later on July 8,1904 her pensions is approved for $96.00 per year.She ends up applying again in 1909 and 1913.Wealthy lives with her daughter Carrie Cheshire in Lake City until her daughters death in 1919,she then moves to Lakeland Florida to live with her youngest son Daniel Kinsey Turner and his wife Georgia Florida Johns.On April 19 ,1921 Wealthy Sandlin Turner dies and her remains are taken back by her son Daniel, home to Columbia County ,Florida to be interned next to her Husband Jesse Turner at Hopewell.No permeate marker was ever put on her grave,so in the mid 1980's this author and her 3rd great Grandson John Harris put the temporary marker pictured here at her grave site,next to her husband Jesse Turner, which is in the Sandlin/Turner enclosure at Hopewell Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery,Columbia County,Florida.As a child,this author fondly remembers trips taken by the family to pay our respects to our pioneering ancestors.The excitement of driving down the spanish moss lined county road to get the old and mysterious backwoods church and cemetery will always be etched in mind.

John Clay Harris,3rd great grandson of Wealthy Sandlin Turner

Death: 1890
Orlando
Orange County
Florida, USA

He was the son of John Hughey and his first wife and had 10 siblings with his father and mother and 10 more with his father and his second wife Hannah Morris PEARSON

James arrived in Florida from Georgia in 1855 in a covered wagon and settled in the south west side of Lake Lucerne (originally named Lake Lucindy after the wife of Bernard Hughey) His 160 acre homestead stretched from the lake to Parramore Ave. He had a log house at the intersection of Grace and Macy Streets both which have been eliminated as the results of highway construction. A trail from his house ran downhill to lake Lucerne and when it rained sand would be washed into Lake Lucerne. Over the years it formed the "Hugheys Peninsula" on which was built a small home for a pair of swans donated by Charles Lord in 1910.

James was one of the area's first mail carriers and served as court clerk beginning in 1857 until 1880. He established Orlando's first drainage system. Hughey Ave is named after him.

James P Hughey is listed on the Greenwood records as the owner of the plot but there is no record of him being buried here. His wife Susan and daughters are all buried at Greenwood
