    !Sealing: John died crossing the plains, Susannah, his wife had herself sealed to him in the Endowment House soon after her arrival. She was married for time to Wesley Rose the same day. Susan has listed her husbands information as: John Hathaway, Born April 13, 1806 in Bristow(in the town slot) really looks like Barstow or Barston?, (county left blank), Massachusetts. Ten years later and her forth husband she is listed as being sealed to Isaiah Campbell with no cancelation of first sealing. Since she did this family have sealed the children to this last husband and the first.

    At the church Historical Dept. I found that John and Susan Hathaway are recorded as having come to Nauvoo in the Summer of 1845 from the Hornby Branch, New York bringing a recommend.

    They are listed as borrowing money, in the Perpetual Emigration Fund to cross the plains in 1862.

    They are in the Horton D Haight Ox Cart Company, with name spelled Hatheway.

    John was supposedly a whaler off of the coast of Massechusetts after a few years he went to New York. He met a girl, Susan Ellen Clark, who was working in a lumber camp as a cook who he married.

    Dear Ms. Dodge, According to "Whaling Logbooks and Journals 1613-1928" no logbook for the 1825 voyage of the Martha exists in a public collection. "The History of the American Whale Fishery," by Alexander Starbuck, says the master of this voyage was Sheffel Reed and the destination was the Brazil whaling grounds. The ship returned June 2, 1826, with 1,900 barrels of whale oil. The wife of Capt. Sheffel Reed was Almira Hathaway of Fairhaven, the fifth of eight children of Joseph and Ann Dillingham Hathaway. For additional information, you may want to locate a copy of "Hathaways of America," edited by Elizabeth Starr Versailles, printed in 1970 by Gazette Printing of Northampton, MA. Good luck with your research. Sincerely, Laura Pereira, Library Assistant, New Bedford Whaling Museum
    ------------------------------------ Possible ways of travel from Hornby to Illinois::::::::::
    Two alternatives to the travel route to Illinois from Steuben Co., would have been 1) overland down what today has become the Southern Tier Expressway, which follows what I believe is an old Indian track to the west. From Erie, PA, it might have been faster to sail down Lake Erie to Toledo, then overland to Illinois, which would have been faster than sailing up through Lakes Huron and back down Lake Michigan. The latter lake was and is, very treacherous for sailing, and wasn't for the faint-hearted. A second route would have been similar, going up to the Erie Canal, and doing a packet to Buffalo, then down Lake Erie to Toledo and overland to Illinois. The terrain from Toledo west across northwest Ohio and Indiana wasn't too rough, and there was a well-traveled route which today is Indiana 120 across the extreme northern part of the state. There was also a partial canal system from Toledo west up the Maumee River to Ft. Wayne, Indiana, then cross country on what is today US30.
