305 Al White was a popular Milton barber for many years. His shop was on Broadway and was patronized by many of Milton’s business and professional men. He was a stout man and had such a hearty laugh that all who heard him, laughed with him. WHITE, Albert C. (I9462)
306 Albert Cadwallader was born in Milton, Pennsylvania on October 11, 1841. He was the son of Seth Cadwallader and Elizabeth Hammond, who married on February 3, 1824.

During the Civil War, Albert enlisted in Company A of the Third Pennsylvania Militia. He later was appointed agent for the United States Sanitary Commission to distribute supplies to sick and wounded soldiers at the front.

Albert's father, Seth Cadwallader, was engaged in the mercantile business in Milton from 1812 to 1854, when he retired. He was a prosperous merchant. Albert may have succeeded to the family business because he was engaged in the grocery and provision business in Milton until 1879. After the great Milton fire, he conducted a grocery business in the Cadwallader block on Broadway for some years.

Albert Cadwallader married Annie Louisa Supplee on October 20, 1868 in Germantown, PA. Albert and Annie had eight children.

In 1905 he sold the family home at 250 Center Street. In May of that year, his youngest daughter Bertha, who was visiting in Philadelphia, received a letter from her mother which indicated that Albert, Annie, and their son James Albert were living in the Broadway House Hotel. Annie had been in poor health and perhaps they had decided it would be better for her not to try to keep up their big house.

In June, 1905, Bertha received a letter from her mother saying that she and Albert were leaving for a visit to their son Iredell. It turned out that Albert had planned to take Annie to California to spend the rest of the year with their son Austin in Los Angeles. Their first stop was to be a visit with Iredell and his family in Kinzua, Pennsylvania.

Unfortunately, before they started, Annie fell on the stairs and injured her side. After she got to Kinzua, she developed an abcess, which got progressively worse. Iredell was a medical doctor so she got the best of care. But nothing helped and Annie died in Kinzua on September 15, 1905.

Family tradition says that after her mother died, Bertha, who was still unmarried, lived with her father and kept house for him.

Albert Cadwallader remarried in May of 1909 to Louisa A. Crawford, who was a good bit younger than he was. His children were strongly opposed to this marriage. In response to this, Louisa signed an ante-nuptial agreement in which she waived any claim to Albert Cadwallader's estate but was guaranteed an annuity after his death for the rest of her life. Louisa survived Albert by many years and died in 1949.

Probably also in response to his children's feelings, Albert wrote a will and signed it on August 20, 1909. This was a ten-page will and went into great detail. Basically it stipulated three things:

(1) After Albert's death, all of his lands and real estate, with the exception of real estate located at the corner of Broadway and Front Street in Milton, and all of his personal estate were to be liquidated. After his debts and funeral expenses had been paid, the remainder of the proceeds was to be divided share and share alike among his six surviving children. His daughter Gertrude H. Spindell was specifically not to receive a share of this money.

If any of his children died before the will became effective, their share was to be divided share and share alike among any children they might have. If there were no children, the share was to be divided share and share alike among their brothers and sisters.

He further directed that "in no event shall either the present or any future husband of either or any of my daughters take any share or interest or benefit from my estate." He apparently did not trust his daughters' husbands.

Finally, he said that several of his children were indebted to him for monies that he had advanced to them and that the amounts of their indebtedness, without interest, were to be deducted from their shares in the estate.

(2) The lands and real estate at Broadway and Front Street in Milton were to be held in trust for his children. His executors were to distribute the net proceeds from this trust each year share and share alike among his seven children. [In this case, Gertrude was to receive her share.]

The property held in this trust was not to be sold until the last of his seven children had died.

If any of his children died, their share was to be divided equally among their children. If they did not have children, their share was to be divided share and share alike among their brothers and sisters.

(3) Albert's second wife, Louisa A. Cadwallader was to receive out of the income of this trust, before any payments to his children, the sum of sixty dollars each month for the rest of her life, if she did not remarry.

Albert Cadwallader lived only three years after he remarried. His obituary said that he had been in ill health for years and that the cause of his death was hardening of the arteries. He and Louisa were living in the Hotel Milton at the time of his death. It would seem that this remarriage was largely one of convenience and that Louisa probably earned her annuity.

Albert Cadwallader died on May 2, 1912 and was buried next to his first wife, Annie Louisa, in the Milton Cemetery. He left an estate that was estimated at $100,000.

Two notes about Albert Cadwallader's will are interesting:

(1) Albert's daughter Gertrude died in 1909 about the same time that Albert wrote his will. She therefore did not miss receiving her share in the first part of her father's estate. Her two children, Hammond and Catherine, started receiving their shares from the trust in 1912.

(2) Albert's daughter Bertha lived to be almost ninety and outlived all of her brothers and sisters. The trust was therefore not liquidated until 1972, almost sixty-three years after Albert established it in his will. Albert's grandson, James Albert Cadwallader, Jr., took over from the original trustees, Seth Iredell and Austin Supplee, who died in 1957 and 1960.

307 ALBERT CADWALLADER was born in Milton, Pennsylvania, October 11, 1841, was reared and educated in his native town, and was engaged in the grocery and provision business until 1879. October 20 1868, he married Annie L., daughter of Andrew Supplee, of Philadelphia, and by this union they have seven children; Gertrude H.; Austin S.; Seth Iredell; Mary Louisa; Kate E.; Bertha May, and Albert.

During the Rebellion he volunteered in Company A, Third Pennsylvania Militia, and later in Company E, Twenty-eighth Emergency Men, and was afterwards appointed agent for the United States sanitary commission to distribute supplies to the sick and wounded soldiers at the front.

In politics he is a Republican, and was elected county treasurer in 1871, the first Republican ever elected to that office in this county. He served five terms as chief burgess of Milton, and has also been a member of the town council. He is secretary and treasurer in the Milton Knitting Factory, and has been a director of the Milton National Bank for several years. Mr. Cadwallader is a member of Henry Wilson Post. G. A. R., and served as quartermaster of the same four years. He and family attend the Presbyterian church.

309 ALEXANDER JORDAN was born at Jaysburg May 19, 1798, and was a young child when the family removed to Milton, where he was reared. He had the educational advantages afforded by the local schools, but they were none too good and he went to work early. Moreover, though little more than a boy during the war of 1812-15, he accompanied the militia in the march across the State to Meadville, Crawford county, as deputy commissary, being absent several weeks.
After clerking for several years in a store at Milton Mr. Jordan entered upon what was practically his apprenticeship to the legal profession, becoming an employee of Hugh Bellas, prothonotary of Northumberland county, for whom he was deputy clerk. During his work in that capacity he did begin the study of law under Mr. Bellas, but he did not study regularly for some time, as his inclination was toward mechanical pursuits, and his leisure, moreover, was limited. He continued to serve as deputy prothonotary under Mr. Bellas's successors, George W. Brown and Andrew Albright, meanwhile carrying on his law studies with such success that he was admitted to the bar April 19, 1820, having passed an examination by Messrs. Hepburn, Hall and Bradford.
He commenced practice at once, opening an office at Sunbury, and rose rapidly in the profession. His diligence as a student, which made his preparation especially thorough, was never relaxed after he entered upon the practice of the law, and much of his success was of the kind that may be won always by industry and patient care. His ability was unquestioned, but he did not depend upon natural talent alone to gain his patronage and prestige or to win his cases. In addressing the court or the jury he used language concise and to the point, and arguments which showed the most painstaking preparation, and his occasional eloquence was the eloquence of conviction, not of flowery but shallow discourse.
Several years after his admission to the bar he received his first public honor, and from that time until the end of his days he was an influence in the judicial circles of his section. In 1826 he was commissioned prothonotary of the Supreme court for the Middle district, a connection which was of great value to him, bringing him, as it did, into contact with the leading jurists of the State. When the judiciary became elective in this State his high professional standing combined with his personal popularity made him a desirable candidate of his party, the Democratic, then dominant in the State,and in October, 1851, he was elected president judge of what was then the Eighth Judicial district, comprising Northumberland, Lycoming, Center and Clinton counties, by a large popular majority. He took the oath of office Nov. 28, 1851, and continued to serve, by reelection, for twenty years. In 1861 the counties of Northumberland, Montour and Lycoming constituted the district. Such continued honors as came to Judge Jordan were not the result of chance.
Many complicated questions affecting large personal and property interests, and involving principles not heretofore considered, arose during Judge Jordan's incumbency; in these important cases his decisions have stood the severest scrutiny and will be an enduring evidence of his ability as a jurist. He was endowed in a remarkable degree with the logical faculty, while his analytical powers - keen, incisive and accurate - grasped at once the essential points in an argument, dismembered of all irrelevant matter. To him the law was an intricate science, and its study was quite as much a source of intellectual gratification as a professional duty. His intercourse with members of the bar was characterized by uniform courtesy, and his rulings were so given as to leave no unpleasant feelings; to the younger members his manner and words were kind, considerate and encouraging.
A professor of the Christian religion, seeking to regulate his public and private conduct in strict conformity with the Christian faith, and to exemplify, by justice and diligence, the harmony of religious principles and professions with the diversified, important and dignified duties of a citizen, lawyer, and a judge, he was for many years an elder in the Presbyterian Church of Sunbury and superintendent of its Sunday school.
Judge Jordan was twice married, his first union, in 1820, being to Mary, daughter of Daniel Hurley. Alter her decease, he married Hannah Rittenhouse, formerly of Philadelphia, who survived him many years, continuing to make her home in Sunbury. Judge Jordan died Oct. 5, 1878, and is buried in the Sunbury cemetery.

314 Allen Schreyer - On Sunday evening at his residence, Thomas Street, Mr. Allen Schreyer, aged 73 years and 7 months.

Mr. Schreyer was born in Berks County and when seven years ago moved to Milton and for 84 years was intimately connected with the business and social interest of that town. From 1850 to 1871 he resided in Lock Haven and from the latter date to the time of his decease lived here. Few men were more respected. He was twice married, five children - Mrs. Henry Hoffman, Mrs. Daniel Garman and Mrs. Johnathan Harper of Bellefonte and Mrs. Ivens of Milton, are still living - were the result of the first marriage. Four sons, Messrs. Charles, Benjamin, Hayes and Harry, all of whom survive him and Harry, all of whom survive him and are doing weel, were given him after his marriage the second time. For some time prior to his death he had been subject to “weak spells,” we believe by his physican termed heart disease and at times was very low, yet generally enjoyed rather good health. The interment took place yesterday, a great many people attended. Rev J.F. D'Long, of the Reformed church officiated.

James D. Strine, son of the late William Strine, died at his residence on Lincoln Street, on Saturday afternoon last. The deceased was born in Milton and passed the greater part of his life here. In 1858 he went to Missouri and was there when the war broke out. He joined the 2nd Missouri Artillery and was discharged for disability after serving with distinction for two years. On his discharge he returned to Milton, where he remained until the fall of 1864, when, having partially recovered from the injury for which he was discharged, he re-enlisted in Co. D 7th Pa., Calvary, and joined his regiment, then serving in the Army of the Mississippi. During the memorable year which closed the war he served with his regiment, participating in the battles during the campaign in Kentucky and Tennessee, and doing his full share in Wilson's famous cavalry raid through Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia; during which the command fought many battles and was four months without communication of any kind with the north, subsisting on the country through which it passed. At the close of the war, Mr. Strine returned home and resided in Milton until his death.

For years before his death, deceased was an active and zealous member of the M.E. (Methodist Episcopal) Church of Milton, and, while we mourn his loss, yet we feel assured that, having fought the good fight, he is now enjoying the fruits of the victory with other true soldiers of the cross who have gone before. Peace to his ashes.

334 Bethuel Vincent had recently been married, when he was taken prisoner. His wife returned to her home in New Jersey. Four years after the capture she had heard nothing from her husband. One evening, when she was out with a sleighing party, and had stopped at a tavern, a roughly dressed man inquired if a Mrs. Vincent lived in that vicinity. She was pointed out to him. He stated that he had known her husband in Canada, had lately seen him, and that he was well. He rode with the party in the sleigh, and was disposed to take Mrs. Vincent on his lap ; but she indignantly declined the familiarity, until she discovered that the impertinent stranger was her husband. VINCENT, Bethuel (I2877)
335 Betty and Laurence Hill invited her to their parents' golden wedding anniversary in 1948, but she refused. It seems the Cadwallader family had never accepted her, and she was still resentful after all those years. CRAWFORD, Louisa A. (I9573)
336 Betty's health was declining for the past year. On Dec 18th, 2000, she fell in her home, and was taken to Evangelical Hospital in Lewisburg.

339 Birthplace of Tench Francis Jr. (1731-1800)

Nearby is the site of "Fausley'', the birthplace of Tench Francis Jr., colonial businessman, revolutionary patriot, financier and father of the United States Navy supply corps. A successful merchant in the last decades before independence, Tench Francis Jr. contributed heavily from his personal fortune to support the revolutionary cause. He was subsequently appointed first cashier of the Bank of North America and later headed the commission which laid out the city of Pittsburgh. His appointment as purveyor of public supplies in February 1795 unified navy pursers under a single head and it is from this event that the U.S. Navy supply corps dates its birth.
