EXTRACT FROM COTTON MATHER'S "MAGNALIA"

"In the town of Groton one Elizbeth Knap (Oct., 1671) was taken after a strange manner, sometimes weeping, sometimes laughing, sometimes roaring with violent agitation, crying out 'Money! Money!' Her tongue would be for many hours together drawn like a semi-circle up to the roof of her mouth, so that no fingers applied to it could remove it. Six men were scarce able to hold her in some of her fits, but she would skip about the house yelling and howling and looking hideously. On Dec. 17,her tongue being drawn out of her mouth to an extraordinary length, a daemon began manifestly to speak to her; for many words were distinctly uttered, wherein are the labial letters, without any motion of her lips at all; words also were uttered from her throat, sometimes when her mouth was wholly shut, and sometimes when her mouth was wide open, but no organs of speech were used therein. The chief things that the daemon spoke were horrid railings against the godly minister of the town; but sometimes, likewise, she belched out most nefandous blasphemies against the God of heaven. And one thing about this young woman was yet more particularly remarkable: she cry'd out in her fits that a certain woman in the neighborhood appeared unto her, and was the only cause of her affliction. This woman prayed with and for her, and thus brought her to her senses."

She was bewitched in 1671.
 
Knapp, Elizabeth (I61991)

In 1780 Peter Nothstein served as 2nd class private 6th Co. Associates & Militia Northampton Co., Pa. Entered May 10, 1780, he also served 2 mos. in Capt. Conrad Reder Company, 6th Battalion, Northampton Co., Militia in 1781. This time he sent a substitute. He served under 1st Lt. Charles Craig Nov. 1775 Lt. Craig was wounded at the Battle of Brandywine and never returned to service. He shot himself in 1782. An original paper found in the Nothstein family possession signed by Peter Nothstein reads as follows: Please to settle with John Matth & Beuck the money coming to me for 9 months wages in the regular Army of 1st Pennsio Regement under Charles Craig and also one month Militia wages under Capt. William Meyer of Northampton County and this shall be the discharge during the Service in the regular army. (signed: Peter Nothstein), Witness Present: Georg Lins.

In 1781 Peter is listed on the tax lists in Lynn Twp, on a grist mill, 60 acres, 1 horse and 1 cow in 1788. The Nothstein family moved to East Penn Twp. about 1793 for by virtue of a warrant dated April 6, 1793, surveyed June 4, 1794, there was given to John Kuntz and Peter Nothstein a tract of land situated in Mahoning Valley, Penn Twp. Northampton Co., on the south side of the Mahoning Creek containing 306 acres 142 perches and the allowance of 6%. The land of John Smith bounds it on one side. John Smiths daughters Barbara and Gertrude married Peters sons - John Henry and John. The grist mill apparently was located on Sweitzer Creek with the dam in Weisenburg Township, and the mill in Lynn Township. This grist mill was one of the first in Northampton Co., which is now Lehigh County, and was sold to Abraham Rex around 1794.

Peter died in 1804 without a will and his son Peter Nothstein,JR., John Kunz, and brother in law Leonard Hontz were appointed administrators. He is buried at Normal Square on the hillside cemetery. This site is visited and remembered by the Grand Army and Sons of Veterans, the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and American Veterans of World War II every Memorial Day.

The Nothsteins are closely connected with the early history of Carbon County. Carbon County was originally a part of Bucks County, out of which Northampton County was carved in 1752, and in 1843, Carbon County was carved out of and set off from Northampton County. Penn Township was originally a large tract which was later divided into East Penn, West Penn, and Lausanned Townships. East Penn Twp. was then divided into Mahoning & East Penn. The name Mahoning is derived from a corruption of the Indian words, "Mahon Hanne", which in the language of the Delaware Indians, means, "a stream flowing near a lick". The first settlement in this Township was at Gnaden Huetten, which was founded by the Moravians who were then known as the "Hern Huttens."

His wife Maria Elizabeth died Sep 3, 1843. Her obituary in German appeared in the "Der Friedens Bote" newspaper, Allentown, Pa. Dec. 20,1843 and is translated as follows: Died the third Sept. in East Penn, Carbon Co., Maria Elizabeth born Hans of Lynntown, Lehigh Co., widow for 39 years of deceased Peter Nothstein, in decrepitude and old age of 88 years and 6 mos. with 7 children during her lifetime and 62 grandchildren and 72 great grandchildren.

26 "Quite a growth in the settlement of the town was visible during the year 1853. Among the settlers of that year were P. Chapdelan, F.LeBret, Dosite Auge and his son, Treffle, James and W.L. Wescott, T.N.Dailey, Michael Reid, and T.J.McCollum and sons. Mr. Chapdelan bought of Edward Bibaux and Felix Ake, who had come in earlier, the claim in Sections 12 and 13, now owned by James Wescott ... James Wescott soon purchased LeBret's claim right, and built a house sixteen feet square, which he occupied with his brother, W.L. Wescott. In the fall of 1854, the latter returned to their former home in Maine and brought out his family. James Wescott being at that time unmarried, the brothers continued to live together. Along the route, by their house, there was a large amount of travel, and from the time they began to show the first signs of housekeeping, the Wescotts were besought to entertain the travelers. They were soon forced to make a business of this and Wescott's Inn became famous throughout the country as a traveler's rest. Political conventions were held there at an early day. On one occasion, in 1856, a mass convention assembled there, of which John Van Hoesen of Hastings was chairman. Among other features of the affair, speeches and motions were in French, and the worthy chairman was forced to call an interpreter to his assistance. After a few years, W.L.Wescott removed to a claim of his own, while his Brother, James continued to keep public house until 1863. This he did with great success, being unable at times to entertain all who would be his guests. he still occupies his original home, as much distinguished for his private hospitality as he formerly was for hospitality to the public ... "
"In 1866, a flag station without a depot was established on the line of the Iowa and Minnesota division of the Chicago, Milwaukee, and St. Paul railway, near the south-east corner of section 13, on land belonging to James Wescott, from whom the station is named Westcott Station ..."

In another edition of History of Dakota County it is stated that "In 1855 Mr. Thomas (most likely it should read James) Wescott opened his house as a tavern, which is the only one ever in the town. It was called one of the best on the route, and many a weary traveler has thanked his 'lucky stars' that he arrived at Westcott's ere the night set in to expose him to the inclemency of the weather."

The Chicago, Milwaukee, and St. Paul railway purchased the right-of-way for the railroad from James Wescott and proceeded to lay the tracks. However, payment was not made for the land before the first train came through. James sat on a chair on the tracks with a shot gun, stopped the train, and forces it to back up to the last station. When the payment came through, the train was allowed to pass.

Tombstone in Buckfield marked only "Father and Mother", next to Wilson.

Bradbury was a very fun loving guy with a good sense of humor. He was known for his practical jokes on family and friends. He was a small man in stature only measuring 5'3''. He worked his dad's farm and had a farm of his own which Wilson took over later. He raised cattle for both milk and beef. Milk went to the local dairy. Beef was shipped to Boston, along with apples from his orchard. His main cash crop was corn that he sold to a local cannery. He sold pigeons to sell in Boston which he sold as fresh "quail". He worked in town as a butcher, in the winter and was suspected to sell deer meat as veal.
When the train went into the creek it was never set up again for freight. This changed a lot of commerce trading for Buckfield. Getting products to Boston now was impossible. Cash was tight and Bradbury turned to running Rum from Canada threw Smuggler's Notch in Vermont. This was across a lake and Bradbury would keep most of the rum on the outside of the boat connected by ice thongs and if chased would squeeze the top and the rum would drop to the bottom of the lake making it easier for him to get away or at least have nothing to get caught with. He sold his rum to a local pharmacy who had a run in with the town. One Sunday morning the preacher warned his Parrish that anyone who drank could not cross the threshold of his church next Sunday. Later that week the church and the school next to it were burned down. No one was arrested but the pharmacist left town never to return and his accomplice was never revealed. Local gossip has it that Brad was part of this incident. He spent a lot of time with a man named Larry Fisher and they were partners in the rum running.
As time went on his wife Viola left him; traveling with a salesman named Joe Bowles; to Boston. He sold pots and pans and known to locals as a Jew boy. She went to Boston with him and divorced Bradbury and later married Walter Reed. She took Elbert her youngest son with her never to return to Buckfield except to be buried with Bradbury.
Bradbury was a hunter and a fisherman as most men in those days were. He was a heavy drinker and a chain smoker. When he died they gave him nicotine pills so he would lay still and die quitely. He lived his last days living with his son Wilson.
John Linwood Damon Jr. told Brian Edward Damon these stories as he had first hand knowledge of his uncle and talked about him with a smile and a chuckle. He ended each story with the disclaimer " or so I heard".
