In Reply to: Netherton's 1700's, Lostwithiel Cornwall by Jo Murphy of 289

I have information about Richard and Anne Bennett Netherton. I know only of seven of their children, one of whom was Richard, who was born in 1736. He married Sarah Reskilly in 1760 in the Lanlivery Parish, Bodmin District, Cornwall. They had seven children, one of whom was Samuel, born March 3, 1777. Samuel married Catherine Custis in 1798. They had eight children, one of whom was Richard, born December 22, 1805, into the Lostwithiel Parish. He married Betsy Stevens in 1830. They had six children, one of whom was Henry, born Feb. 12, 1838. Richard and his wife, Betsy, migrated to Ontario, Canada with their family in 1849. Henry married Sarah Walley Netherton, and they had seven children, one of whom was Arthur Netherton (my grandfather). By this time they were living in central Illinois. Henry bought quite a bit of farmland about 40 miles north of Champaign, Illinois, in Livingston County, and eventually divided it among his children. Arthur remained on the farm. He and his wife, Emily Gedelman Netherton, had four children. My father, Arthur Leland, was the youngest, and farmed on this land until he retired, and then moved to Hot Springs, Arkansas. My sisters and brother and I grew up on the original Netherton farm. I have more details, but perhaps you already have this information. Various cousins remain in Canada, I believe.
