Belle Tait and Julia Tait (Capron [or Caperon]) were Adam's children, and were given out to different homes when mother and father parted and Adam left for Canada. Her uncle David Tait brought Belle to Betty Tait to raise. He did not want her with his boys. Betty's husband, Thomas sent Belle to Limestone [Cattaraugus Co, NY just no of Bradford PA] to school.

Belle was described by her cousin Lizzie Tait as an "ugly little woman." Belle was later Tom's [Thomas Adam Tait, her first cousin once removed] wife. She and Tom were married at Agnes’s [Agnes Tait Snyder’s] house up next to Jane's [Jane Tait Maxwell’s]--at five o'clock in the morning. Two ministers named Copeland and Miller officiated. Afterwards they went on a trip and set up housekeeping up by the chestnut tree on the Thomas Tait family farm.

Later Tom sold out to Harry Fox, and Belle left him. She set up a store in Bradford on Congress Street with all the money, specializing in ladies garments, rigs. Agnes Tait Snyder made dresses and Janet Tait Vining invested in it also). But it did not succeed.

Tom parted from Belle several times, but he always loved her. They just could not get along. Edward, a son, was born later in the marriage and then they parted for good when Edward was about four or five.

Belle’s sister, Juliet Caperon apparently took care of Ed for a while and later he went with Tom to Ohio. Edward was run over by a train in Ohio and died, perhaps 12 or 14 years old.

In later years Belle became a practical nurse, and is described as having had gray, wavy hair.

Belle is also reported to have married again to a man named Nobles and lived in Port Alleghany, Pa. She apparently had three more children. Lynn Nobles was a son of Belle and her second husband. She ran away from Nobles when Lynn was seven years old.

Belle is last recorded as living in a boarding house in West Chester Pa. [West Bradford, Chester, PA, which is west of Philadelphia] in 1938, age 73, on a "mother's pension."

The 1900 census says her mother was b. in French Canada! 1920 says France. This suggests that Belle was not Adam’s son by Mary, but by some other woman in Canada. However Belle’s census data are often inaccurate, and it appears that she was not always truthful.

Joe was 20 months older than his sister Lizzie. He went to school at Babcock [in Bradford, PA]. He worked about the family farm, and like his father, he eventually learned blacksmith trade and set up shop in Littleton (Bradford's early name). He married Johann[a] Edison. Joe boarded at Mrs. Walker’s where Johanna helped out. Son Leroy Tait was born in ' 75 or ' 76. Joe kept his blacksmith shop opposite Mrs. Walker's.

They stayed at Mrs. Walker's some time and then she wanted to move to her mother's farm up Kendall Creek. Joe didn't want to quit his blacksmith business, and furthermore he was in business deals with Mrs. Walker. He rented a house for his wife in town and she stayed there with the baby. Joe went to take the baby riding every day, but his wife wouldn't go along with them. Then she moved to Cuba [NY], even farther from Joe. Joe furnished the place. Ultimately they divorced. (Johanna’s mother and Mrs. Walker were probably to blame.) Johanna’s mother sold out and they all went west. The grandmother died in a dugout in Nebraska where they homesteaded.

Later the family moved to Omaha and Leroy grew to be a nice looking man. He was married and had four girls at Omaha last hearing [before 1930]. He wrote to Uncle Joe at times and even came to Bradford to see him once. Joe lived at Anderson and Leroy visited him there with his family. Joe always seemed to care for him. He refused him a bicycle once, but gave him $500 another time. But Joe left his son Leroy nothing after his death.

Uncle Joe was to marry Grace Henderson, a teacher (Alfred Center [Alfred Station, NY?]) but after a house was built and all, Mrs. Walker caused trouble between them, and said she had another beau at home. She was a beautiful girl.

A Mrs. Kram also set her cap for Joe. She sent for two new silk dresses--to be wedding or funeral dress--went to meet Joe at junction [Bradford Junction, NY, Just north of Bradford, PA]. Joe always kept fine team and two-seated surrey. He went to see Grace with his team and driver. The driver was killed in accident right at start--near St. James [St. James Place, Bradford, PA]. The horses ran into creek [West Branch, Tunungwant Creek which joins with Kendall Creek], and smashed up. Joe was sick abed over this disappointment. In the long run Grace proved untrue.

Mrs. Walker sent for Kate Batelle to take Joe's mind from Grace. She was a dressmaker. Mrs. Walker never dreamed he would marry again. Romance started and ended in marriage to Mrs. Walker's disappointment. They were married and lived in house in Corydon [township formed from Bradford, PA in 1829]. Glenn was born there and Clara 12 or more years later.

*Like most others at the time, Joe went into the oil business. He left Bradford for Alexandria, Indiana--gas and oil wells. He lived at Alexandria several years and then went to Anderson, Indiana to live. Clara (sister) stayed with them.

Mrs. Walker stayed in Bradford till she [Mrs.Walker?] married to Will Boyleston. She worked at Emen's [?]. Will was off most of the time and enjoyed life. He visited the west, seeing Andrew Tait at Vancouver and Estella and Frank Beam at Aberdeen, Washington.

Joe had gold mine in British Columbia and a ranch in Alberta that he gave to Glenn. His back was hurt in auto wreck, and he suffered internal injuries. He went to Mayo Brothers and thought he was getting on fine when peritonitis set in and he died.

Elizabeth was living in Joe's house when he died--probably in August of 1912. She dreamed Uncle Joe came in with a bunch of flowers from Scotland—he had been all over the old places in Scotland. She cried and cried—had not been able to shed a tear since Joe's death but felt so badly.

*About J.M. Tait and the Oil business: “In May 1880, Book and Rhodes’ No. 15 Tank, on Rutherford run, was struck by lightning and 600 barrels of oil burned, and Stewttheimer’s engine house on East Branch, destroyed. J. M. Tait lost the rigs and tanks at his wells on Foster Brook.”

Joseph Tait’s second wife was Kate Batelle, a dressmaker. They married and lived in house in Corydon [Township formed from Bradford, PA in 1829]. There son Glenn was born and Clara 12 or more years later [perhaps actually ten]. He apparently was schooled went to Culor Academy [Culver Military Academy, Culver Indiana].

Glenn married early and had two children. After his schooling, he went on a trip and jokingly asked a girl to come home with him. She came back with him—no suitcase or anything—and they were married. They lived at home [Indiana?] a while and later set up house by themselves. Glenn became interested in Christian Science and later in New Thought. He traveled about lecturing on these subjects.

Glen apparently inherited from his father a gold mine in British Columbia and a ranch in Alberta.

“By 1917, when the U.S. entered WWI, Thomas Bros. had merged with Morse Corporation, becoming Thomas-Morse. They opened a new factory on south hill and with war contracts employment jumped from 100 to 1,200. Although the school closed for a time due to lack of instructors (most had left to join the war effort) the airport was busy with the test flights of airplanes during the war. Thomas-Morse designed the MB-3, the first postwar fighter ordered in quantity by the military and was very busy in the immediate postwar years. However, by 1929, Thomas-Morse was absorbed by Consolidated Aircraft Co. and moved to Buffalo. The airplane factory on south hill was converted to the manufacture of adding machines.” http://cayugawaterfronttrail.com/?t=74

But Glenn did not stay with the Aircraft manufacturing business long:

They (Tom and his wife Belle Tait) went back to living in East Bradford where Nellie was born. Later Tom went to Nebraska. He wrote Lizzie that she had not storied [exaggerated] about the big crops in Nebraska. He came back and sold washing machines. Tom parted from Belle several times but he always loved her.

When Marian was born [Mar 14, 1847 in Durrisdeer, Dumfriesshire, Scotland], the midwife said she was the nicest of them all --long shapely limbs.
When the family landed in America in November of 1815, it consisted of eight members: Thomas Tait (father), Elizabeth Moffat Tait (mother) John Brown (adopted), Joe, 9, Elizabeth eight years old, Agnes, Marian and Janet.

Marian went to school at Smethport [PA]. She was bright, and she studied hard. But she came home and lost her mind.

She had attended May party at Smethport where she was crowned Queen of May and there she thought one Isaac Brown had mesmerized her (he was that kind of man—a hypnotist). She worried a lot about it after coming home and soon had trouble—gradually losing her mind. She hoped to see him again and get the cloud off her mind, but was disappointed. Her father brought her to other hypnotists, but they said she had gone too long and they could not lift the cloud altogether. They got her back to school times, but no farther.

Isaac Brown's uncle came to see her and thought she had been mesmerized but said Isaac was dead. Marian herself agreed. Her father consulted many others, and all thought she was mesmerized.

She was engaged to Tom Hunt. She was a nice looking tall girl with beautiful hair.

Her mother took care of her for years until she died in 1885. After her mother died, they had a woman, Maggie Thompson, doing the housework and Marian stayed home. Maggie wanted Marian taken away and they thought it might help. They told her she was going to Scotland, for she often packed a bag and said that was where she was going. Her father and sisters Lizzie and Janet took her to the Warren Institution and pretended it was a hotel. One by one, they left her, making excuses. As they left in a carriage for the train, they looked back and saw her waving from a window. They all felt so badly, and her father nearly fainted. They all expected her to get well. Still she ate nothing for 10 days, grieving.

Janet and Lizzie went back to see her soon. They found her still in bed grieving; she would not rise or speak. A nurse announced her sister Lizzie had come to visit, and she would not believe it nor open her eyes till Lizzie kissed her. She begged to be taken home saying, "You've come for me." But the doctor said to leave her. She was dressed and they took her for a walk out in the beautiful yard. She was not interested. "Come on," she said, "Gus Snyder is passing by and we'll ride with him." "No," said Lizzie. "There are cars on other side." They ran and got her back in the house and she fussed so. "I knew you were going to cheat me." “They all go thru that,” said the doctor. That was the last they saw of her, for they took her away. Connie Griffith, who later married her father, Thomas Tait was Marian’s attendant.

Marian was there at the Warren Institution for a good while. Her father visited and then decided he'd bring her back. Lizzie and Janet went after her and she spent two days with Elizabeth. Her father then took her home. She sang "Mary across the Wild Moor" as she passed by Foster's. Her father cried. Marian had learned so many beautiful poems and songs and could repeat them by the hour. She used to tire the teachers with her long recitations and deep questions. She couldn't believe she was really back till she played on the organ.

At this time, Belle Miller (her brother-in-law Will's niece) was there to care for Marian and do the housework. She got along so nicely with Marian.

But eventually Marian was taken back to Warren when there was no longer anyone to look after her. Connie Griffith was an attendant at the hospital and later when her father wanted Marian home, he brought the attendant Connie with her. She remained a year or more and then married Marian’s Father. After that, Connie wanted Marian sent back to the hospital at Warren where poor Marion stayed till the end of her days.

Some of relatives visited her now and then but of later years she did not recognize any of them. They sent word to here sister Lizzie and Harry [Harry Fox?] that she was doing poorly. They went out by auto (Howard and B.) {Howard and Blanche Fox?] and found her dying. They stayed awhile but she passed away soon after they left. She died about November 1922 on a Sunday. She was born 1849, March 14th. Age 73. She was brought home and buried in her father's lot.

Adam Moffat married Elizabeth Austin, who lived to be 90 years old. She had 13 children, by Adam Moffat and lived to see them all but three of them die. She, like so many, was a religious woman and knew the Bible by heart.

Her uncle took her to bring up and educated her in London. He was a British general who had four sons. He bequeathed a share of his estate to Elizabeth, but the oldest son had the will changed by codicil because of his large family.

Nevertheless her uncle left her a nice big stone home in Moffat and she lived there all the rest of her life. It was a home for preachers and for her grandsons when their mothers died. She brought up Adam Johnson, her daughter Ann’s [Marian’s] son, who later came to Newfoundland and lived there all his life. She also brought up Adam Moffat, her daughter Ann's boy.

Elizabeth and Adam had only one son who lived to be 13 years old. He [fell] over a precipice when fishing with some boys. His father sent him to weeding onions so he'd stay at home and when some boys came along to tease him he went to his mother and teased her till she gave him some bread and butter and told him shortly to go out and not come back--much to her grief when he was brought back injured.

Elizabeth sold her stone house not long before her death and bought a little cottage where she lived with her granddaughter, Charlotte Johnson till she died.

[Adapted by Alaric Faulkner from reminiscences of Lizzie Tait Gallaher, Notes of Stella Fox Beam]
Agnes was the first one married. Truman Snyder was home from the army [Civil War, Private Company: B Unit: 13th Pennsylvania Res. Inf., 1st US Cavalry] on furlough and they were married. He had always admired her from the time they lived in Kendall Creek [SE Bradford, PA] as little children.

Agnes was engaged to George Stockweather who boarded with Uncle Sandy. He had come to be married and all was ready and he did not show up. Mrs. Buck Foster had taken him to see her niece at Smethport [SE of Bradford PA] and he later married someone else.

Agnes was terribly disappointed and a year later married Truman at the insistence of all his relatives. He was not going back till she did marry him--she was only 18.

He had enlisted in the regular army to get a furlough and when the war closed he was sent west to fight the Indians for a year or two. Agnes lived at home.

When he came home her father Thomas Tait made a shoemaker shop above the blacksmith shop and set him up in business. Later he went to Limestone [NY] and worked at his trade. Agnes sewed on buttons. He was a fine shoemaker but did not stick to his trade.

Finally went to Oil City--drilling--good driller. Agnes worked at dressmaking there. Children were born--Fanny a year--Monte six weeks and twins at birth-but all died.

Roy was born in Millerstown, Pennsylvania. They struck oil here and Truman came back to help Grandfather drill his first well--near the line by the present children's home.

He was quite a hunter. Once he went hunting with a New York party because of his father's hounds. Tom and a hired boy served as guides and leader of hounds. Tom and the boy were together when Tom felt tug at pants leg. He turned around and saw a bear! He shot it and claimed it. Then he sent it to New York and got a good price. He and George worked for their father [Thomas Tait] till they were married.

[The Taits and Foxes were pioneer oil producers in McKean County, Pa. at Oil City and the following story relates to their early ventures] The first well was a good one of flowing oil. But the well caught afire when gas was struck and burned the first well and oil. Uncle Tom was drilling when gas was struck and ran up to tell the others at the boiler— Harry Fox, and Joe, and George Tait. They were saved, but Tom was badly burned for he was covered with oil and ran in the wrong direction against the wind. Joe ran after him with a coat trying to put the fire out. Flesh fell off his bones; he was severely burned about the face, arms and hands and in his lungs. Tom was taken to Buffalo to the hospital and they grafted skin on him. The was fitted with a board frame and yoke to hold hands out. It took two years to heal. He was scarred dreadfully and several fingers had to be taken off. George stayed at the hospital nine months with him, for he allowed no one else to dress his wounds. He was badly scarred and maimed, and it affected his lungs. He was never as well afterwards.

Belle Tait was brought by Tom’s uncle David Tait to Tom’s father’s house [Thomas Tait Sr.] as a young girl. She was sent to school at Limestone [NY]. Later she and Tom were married at his sister Agnes's up next to sister Jane's—at five o'clock in the morning. Two ministers officiated: Reverends Copeland and Miller. After their honeymoon they took up housekeeping up by the chestnut tree.

Later Tom sold out to Harry [Fox] and his wife left him. She set up a store in Bradford, on Congress Street with all the money, where she sold ladies garments, or “rigs.” His sisters Agnes, a dressmaker, and Janet invested in it also. The venture did not succeed.

They went back to living in East Bradford where Nellie was born. Later Tom went to Nebraska. He wrote Lizzie that she had not storied [exaggerated] about the big crops in Nebraska. He came back and sold washing machines. Tom parted from Belle several times but he always loved her. The simply could not get along. Edward, a son, was born later and then they parted for good when Edward must have been about four or five.

Juliet Caperon [Capron?] took Nellie for years, and sent her to school. Julia may have taken Ed also for a while, but later he went with Tom to Ohio. Edward was run over by a train in Ohio and died (perhaps 12 or 14 years old).

Tom was full of fun and Harry Fox's children always like to see him showing up at the front gate unexpectedly. Tom worked in Ohio of later years in the oil ty drilling [?]. He took sick and died in Columbus Hospital after a mastoid operation. George went out and stayed with him till his death and buried him there.

Nellie had lived with Tom some time before she was married. She had three boys. She lived in Ohio and Canada for a short time and was last in Granvill[e, east of Columbus] Ohio.

Belle was reported to have married again and lived in Port Alleghany [PA] (Grass [?] was his name). Had three children and she died later.

Truman went south for his health. He took up a pine-homestead and later (1884) Agnes and children went down. High waters in the South, but they arrived safely. They lived at Astabula [Ohio] first [and Later] (Sumter County) [Florida] They had an orange grove and even raised pineapples.

Truman worked at the carpenter's trade. Sunstroke when shingling a hotel at Tampa, Florida. They all had malaria and yellow fever broke out so Agnes and the children came home.

I will tell you what I know which is very little detail about the cemetery
and such in western Nebraska. Many years ago when I was researching the
Nichols Tree ---probably around the late 1980's or early 1990's, Bill and I
drove to Curtis to meet with a relative who had extensive records of Abraham
Lincoln Nichols, the brother to my William Herbert Nichols. In fact the two
brothers had been close and even after marriage, they helped one another out
when times were tough. Abe brought his family to Fillmore County to live at
one point because things weren't going well out in Frontier County or
whereever. Abe's wife died when the kids were young and he really had to
rely on his oldest kids to keep things together. The stories I heard were
wonderful and so interesting relating to the family. The lady, Donna Hazen,
drove with us all over the country side showing us the farms where the family
lived. I saw where Cyrus and Helen made their home. Of course it had
changed since they lived there but it was very interesting to see the
different landscape as it is rough terrain out there and not really easy to
farm. Our land is flat, flat, flat. One relative in western Nebraska got
careless and drove his tractor to close to the edge of a deep ravine and
tumbled off with the maching and was killed. No danger of that where we
farm. I guess you could fall down an uncovered well if it was not sealed
properly but that would be the deepest hole you could find. I believe I told
you about the buffalo wallow that is on or near our property where the
buffalo came to cool off in the summer. And it does get hot, hot, hot. But
I digress again---

Donna told us about the Stockville, NE cemetery which is down the road from
Curtis. That is where Cyrus bought the lots if this is indeed true. We were
just too hot and dusty by this time to go and visit the cemetery. We should
have. I looked in my trusty Funeral Home directory and the name you referred
to is still listed. They should respond but since the cemetery is in another
town, they may refer you to the cemetery director or caretaker there. I have
a phone number if you wish to call them. Bill is urging me to get dressed
and get our errands run so I won't take the time to look it up unless you get
back to me. I have found that the funeral homes do not keep records as to
who owns the lots as they depend on the cemetery directors to do this and to
probe the grave site and open the grave for the interment. I have had my
experience dealing with cemeteries since starting to visit them and finding
mistakes, also placing markers on unmarked graves of relatives (all my
expense of course) and correcting the spelling of graves markers. I
discovered the twin sons of Edgar and Lillie Nichols were buried in Fairmont,
NE and the name was spelled wrong. I mentioned it to the director as I
insist on meeting with them regarding the many questions I have---you can
tell I am a BIT PAIN as I do this research!!! So let me know if you are
having difficulty with this Nebraska question as I can call out there at
little or no charge--I think. Bill's cell phone is a flat rate and I believe
I can jump in on a few calls without a problem. Keep me posted. Billie
