Note on Husband: Henry AXTELL

b. in Berkley, Mass. June 24, 1715. He learned the blacksmith's trade, and in

1737 married Jemima Leonard of Taunton, Mass., a girl some years younger than

himself. After the birth of the second child, Mr. Leonard resolved to migrate

to the then wilderness of New Jersey. Henry determined to take his young

family and accompany his father-in-law into the western wilds. They located

in that part of Morris Co. that was, nine years afterwards, organized into a

township and named Mendham. They located about two miles southeast of where

the village of Mendham now stands. This migration must have taken place in

1740 or '41, and the township of Mendham was organized in 1749. This is the

first movement of the Axtells toward the setting sun. In the "History of

Morris Co." he was spoken of as "Henry the blacksmith." He continued to work

at his trade until 1754, when he died, aged 38 years, leaving a widow and six

children. Jemima afterwards married a Mr. Lumm, and had several children. She

lived to a great age, more than 90, and died at the home of Mr. Japhet Byram,

a mile north of the village of Mendham. "New Jersey Abstract of Wills, Vol.

3, p 68" "1754, Nov. 26. Henry Axtell of Mendham, Morris Co. will of--wife

Jemima, Children, Henry (under age) Phebe, Hannah, Jemima, Calvin, and

Luther. Real and personal property." Ex. Ebenezer Byram, John Carey, Isaac

Babbitt, and Thomas Briggs of Mendham. Proved Jan. 28, 1755. Witness: Caleb

Baldwin, Isaac Babbitt.

 

Henry may have had other sons of whom we have no record, as Henry S.

Axtell of Bradford, N. Y., b. in 1796, claimed relationship with this family.
