Macey, Hannah (I4913)
9 "Liza" or Lize as she was known by her friends and family or "Liz" was the eighth child of Alfred and Selina Pester. She was born Resolven South Wales after her parents moved there from Aberaman, Aberdare.

Liza was a toddler, a little over two years old when her family emigrated to Fernie, British Columbia, Canada in 1904. The Pester family travelled on board the H.M.S Manitoba on a trip that took them a week. According to Liza's niece, Nellie Rogers Gusewelle, the family made their first stop in Pennsylvania to visit family who were living there. It is possible this was the Seymour family in Girardville Pennsylvania. The family have a picture dated in the late 1890's of Liza's Uncle Aquilla Seymour and his family. Eliza's parents Alfred and Selina had married in Girardville in 1882 and had their eldest child Jack there in 1884 before returning to England to live.

After their stay in Pennsylvania, along with her family Eliza went to Fernie, Canada travelling westwards from Quebec. While living with Fernie, Liza's older sister, Lizzie got married. Later the entire family moved to Coal Creek, Canada where the men in Eliza's family worked in the coal mines.

In 1908 Eliza along with her parents and brother and sisters, with the exception of Lizzie and Tillie (who had recently married) and possibly Jack, emigrated to Thurber Texas. They entered the U.S.A. at Rexford, Montana and continued travelling by rail through Idaho and on to Texas. A legal document of entry into the United States Of America kept by Liza's brother Jim verifies this route.

Thurber, Texas was a booming coal mining town at the time the Pester family moved there. They again engaged in coal mining. Eliza's father possessed his competency as a coal miner from Coal Creek, BC, Canada.

Many of Liza's childhood years were spent in Thurber. Her mother died when she was around nine years old. Her baby brother William died soon after he was born in 1908. Those children who were not of legal age continued to live with their father in Thurber. In 1919 when Eliza was around 18 years old, her father Alfred died of the Flu epidemic that was raging through Texas at the time. After her father's death, Eliza and her brother Jim went to live with her sister Lizzie and her family on main street in Edwardsville Illinois.

Lizzie and Frank had moved to Illinois early as the Thurber coal mines began to decline. Liza got a job at the shirt factory and worked there for a number of years. Later around 1925 Liza met and married William Rex Hacker who lived in the Collinsville, Illinois area Bill was a world war one veteran and his health wasn't too good. Eliza suffered from a hearing condition brought on from a severe case of measles as a child. Although the couple had no children they were very close to their brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews.

The author remembers both Liza and Bill being "full of fun" and loving to "cut up". Many parties and much dancing was held at their house with friends of the family coming in to play the fiddle and accordion. The author remembers that on New Years after the stroke of midnight everyone went out doors clanging on pots lids and beating on pans with a spoon. Delicious foods brought by everyone were eaten. Later the children were stretched out on Eliza and Bill's bed to sleep until the wee hours of the morning when the older folks decided it was time to go home.

Bill who died on 8/12/1950 preceded Liza by more than 40 years. Eliza, a very independent woman, made her way on her own with the help of her sisters Florrie and Lizzie and their children. Prior to Liza's death her helpers were her sisters

Florrie's children Ronald and his wife Clarice Mary and Jackie. All of Liza's family, parents, brothers and sisters had preceded her death when she died at the advanced age of 90. Eliza and Bill are buried beside one another at Sunset Hill Cemeteries in Edwardsville Illinois.

13 (Research):A Legacy Continues

James Elwood Bartlett was the patriarch of the Lasbury-Tracy family, one of the early pioneers of Englewood.

J.E. and his wife Nellie took the daring step of moving to Englewood from Michigan in 1915 after selling his successful tackle and feed stores. J.E's adventure south lead him through several Florida communities of interest where he purchased land but it was Englewood and Venice that finally settled him down. No one is really sure what the final attraction to Englewood was. The people? Lemon Bay? Or was it simply the price and availability of land that hooked J.E.

Family stories totaled J.E.'s land purchases as well over forty thousand acres that included large tracts of Venice and Englewood. Manasota Key was purchased but quickly resold because of the limited access and the rugged environment. Venice airport military bunkers were purchased and moved into Englewood for housing. Subdivisions were platted, lots were sold while family members grew up and moved away to pursue higher education, marriage and raise families. J.E. had five children, two boys, James and Alan and three girls, Leah Lois and Ruth. Leah B. Lasbury, Ruth Kuykendall and Lois B. Tracy returned to Englewood years later.

Leah Lasbury founded Englewood's first Real Estate office in 1951 called Lee Lasbury Realty later purchased by Red Branning then Nathan B. Tracy III and renamed to Lasbury Tracy Realty Inc. Leah was a very active supporter of the Englewood community: she served as the president of the Chamber of Commerce, was one of the founders of the Elsie Quirk Community Library, the Englewood Water District and was actively involved in many organizations, including the Business and Professional Women's Organization and many other community and art organizations. Ruth Kuykendall, the youngest of the family settle into Venice working with her father J.E. as his personal secretary and married Kirk. Lois B. Tracy became a renowned abstract painter. Her artwork and her musings made her one of Englewood's most celebrated citizens. Some of Lois' works inducted into the Smithsonian and Metropolitan Museum of Art. Read more about Lois Bartlett Tracy.

Blood lines may thin but in print, photos and canvas, the Bartlett's, Lasbury's and Tracy's will always be part of Englewood past, present and future.

15 (Research):Architect, Medical Pioneer.
He is considered the foremost American landscape artist of the 19th Century, and was largely responsible for the creation and present formation of New York City, New York's Central Park, of which he was Superintendent and chief architect. His landscape architectural work included Prospect Park in Brooklyn, Riverside Park in Manhattan, Chicago's South Side Park, and the grounds of the United States Capitol building. In 1892 he took over the project of laying out the grounds of the 1893 World Fair in Chicago when its first architect died. Olmstead completed the grounds in time for the Fair, which is now known as Jackson Park. During the Civil War, he resigned his post of Central Park superintendent to accept the post of Secretary General of the United States Sanitary Commission. In that capacity, he helped facilitate the Commission's work, which involved the distribution of tons of food and medical supplies to wounded soldiers and war refugees, evacuating wounded from battle areas, inspecting and maintaining standards in military hospitals, stocking and supplying hospital kitchens, and recruiting and maintaining thousands of nurses. The work he and the many workers under him saved thousands of soldiers' lives. He headed the Commission until 1863, when the exertions of his service caused him ill health, and he was forced to resign. Despite all his architectural accomplishments, Frederick Law Olmstead considered his Sanitary Commission position work the most important work of his life.

21 (Research):EZRA DOANE, SR. The Township of Fairmount contains no citizen who is better known or who has won a warmer place in the hearts of the residents in this part of Pike County than Ezra Doane, Sr. He and his wife are now living in quiet retirement on the homestead on section 11, at which place Mr. Doane has improved and built up a comfortable home. Mr. Doane is now quite aged, having been born September 9, 1810, and the years have dispossessed him of some of his mental activity, but have taken away not one jot of the characteristics of an exceptionally lovable nature. He is still as genial, good-natured and kind as ever, and displays as much consideration for those about him. The spirit which animates his life is that which makes old age beautiful and leads all who witness his acts to wish that they too may ripen with years into sweetness rather than to become crabbed and sour as do many.

Mr. Doane is a native of Cape Cod, Mass., and having had the misfortune to lose his father before he can remember, but little of the paternal history is known. His parents' names were William and Hulda Doane. The elder Mr. Doane was a seafaring man and was drowned while on duty during a storm. He is believed to have been born in Maine, and the family is an old and respected one of the New England States. The mother of our subject came of Puritan stock, her ancestors having settled in the old Bay State during Colonial times and having been prominent in the region of Cape Cod. The men were generally seafarers, and Samuel Rider, the maternal grandfather of our subject, was a Revolutionary soldier. He and his wife, formerly Miss Cobb, lived to be quite old. After the death of Mr. Doane they took their daughter and her infant son, our subject, to their home, and from them the lad received loving care until he was twelve years old. He then went to sea, serving a regular apprenticeship before the mast and afterward performing a seaman's duties on coasting vessels.

Our subject made several trips to the West India Islands and served as first mate for a time. He was offered the command of a vessel, but had thoroughly made up his mind to abandon the sea and refused. About 1835 he came to this State, making his first settlement in Brown County. Some two years later he came to Pike County, and in Pittsfield was married to Miss June H. Mace, a native of Maine, whose parents came of the old New England stock. Miss Mace was the eldest child of her parents, who removed to this State when she was a young woman and settled in Pike County.

After his marriage Mr. Doane and his young bride made their home in Brown County, where for some years the husband was engaged in saw-milling. His mill was located on McGee's Creek and during a heavy freshet was swept away, entailing a serious loss. Mr. Doane then sold his rights and established himself on a small farm in Fairmount Township, Pike County, where he afterward accumulated upwards of one thousand acres of land in the best part of the township. He made his home here from early in the '40s until the spring of 1868, when he removed to New Salem Village, living there some twenty years, He then returned to his former home in Fairmount Township. Through the efforts of a life time as a farmer and stock-raiser Mr. Doane has made a large fortune.

In 1863 Mr. Doane met with the loss of his faithful companion, who died when about forty-five years of age; she left eight children, all still living and all married but one. The second marriage of Mr. Doane occurred in the town of Perry, his bride on this occasion being Miss Emily Carter, a lady of education and refinement, true-hearted and noble. She was born in New Canaan, Conn., on Long Island Sound, December 17, 1827, but was quite young when her parents came West. After receiving some fundamental instruction she entered the Female Academy at Jacksonville, Ill., afterward continuing her studies in the State Normal School at Normal. She entered the pedagogical field and taught until her marriage, a period of fourteen years, during which she won the goodwill of pupils and patrons and did efficient work in the cause of education. She is the mother of one living child - Levi S. - who is still at home, but expects in a short time to begin the scientific course of study at Illinois College in Jacksonville.

The parents of Mrs. Doane were Zalama and Harriet (Ayers) Carter, both of whom were born in Connecticut and were descended from the old New England stock of the Puritans. They began their wedded life on a farm in their native State, but emigrated to Illinois in the spring of 1832, settling in Winchester, Scott County. There they remained until 1844, then, buying a farm in Fairmount Township, Pike County, removed hither. Some years later they went to Jacksonville, where Mrs. Carter died in January, 1856, at the age of fifty-five years. She was an active member of the Presbyterian Church. Some time after her death Mr. Carter returned to Pike County and spent the remainder of his days on a farm which he had purchased near Perry. He passed away in April, 1863, at the age of sixty-four years. He was a prominent and worthy citizen and a consistent member of the Presbyterian Church. His early political adherence was given to the Whig party, and he afterward voted with the Free-Soilers and Republicans.

Mr. Doane has filled every township office which is in the gift of the people and has zealously labored to advance their interests in each and every position to which he has been called. He is a stanch Republican and has voted that ticket since the party was organized. He and his wife belong to the Presbyterian Church.

39 (Research):Lois Bartlett Tracy

Lois Bartlett Tracy was born was born on December 9, 1901 and died on April 8, 2008 at the age of 106. Hers is an artist's legacy. Her work hangs in some of the worlds finest art museums. She left the world a more colorful, richer place. Rather than tell you her story, we thought that she could do a better job. This section of the site introduces you to the woman who was called a visionary by many... we called her "Granny".

I was born in Jackson, Michigan on December 9, 1901. By age three my favorite activity was picking up gravel and stones and watching their colors and shapes when placed in jars of water. I spent hours admiring how beautiful they looked. Even now I love rocks. They talk to me. Trees have always talked to me too. I believe my paintings came into being from my feeling one with nature.

Because Mother's health was poor, we could not spend winters in the North. When I was young, we often traveled to Florida by train with a change in Chicago. I remember when I was about six or seven, jumping off the train and running towards the Chicago Museum. There was one particular painting on the first floor to the right that was painted with very thick layers of paint. I fell in love with that thick texture. It left me with a glow of satisfaction. I decided right then and there I was going to be a painter.

For the most part, we children were taught at home but we learned History by traveling to Civil War battlefields where my father paid old men to tell local stories. We learned Geography by learning the names of rivers and cities as we explored them. We had an art teacher once when I was about six, but there was no color. The only material we had was sepia, and that did not inspire me.

College in the 1920's

I didn't have another art teacher until I was a freshman at Florida State College for Women in 1920- '21. Since the College was for women only, all subjects were simply branches of Home Economics. Painting was not taught. We were not allowed to speak to any male, not even the father of a roommate. They would line us up to go to the picture show and count us off as we came out. I often felt like I was in prison. I rebelled against these attitudes towards the education of women by cutting my long wavy golden hair to a short bob. I left and entered Michigan State College soon after women were first admitted there.

At Michigan, my painting teacher just let me go ahead on my own. I started using oil paints and would paint everything I saw. We were both startled by my work. To the amazement of us both, he soon informed me that I was painting just the way those wild men in Paris (Van Gogh, Cezanne, etc.) were painting.

Selling Art in the Early Days

By the time the Depression came along, I was married and living in Winter Park, Florida, attending Rollins College. To help with our support, I sold pictures of palm trees, five dollars a tree. If there were three trees in the painting, it was fifteen dollars. Then I painted the buildings on Rollins campus for my 1929 yearbook.

In the 30's, in Venice, Florida, certain scenes would just cry out to be painted. When a field of cabbages asked me to paint it, I realized that cabbage leaves are just as beautiful as a field of flowers. Mostly, I painted the Florida jungles. In the morning I used to ride out to a Florida ranch on a cow pony (a rather small, tough, horse used to drive the cattle - Florida used to have the second largest number of cattle of all the States). The cowboys would leave me in a hammock and continue on to their day's work. I would paint there all day until they would pick me up on their way back in the afternoon. I would usually have enough done on two 30x 36 or 36x 40 canvases that I could finish them up at home.

40 (Research):Marcus F. Towne was born June 21st, 1824, on the farm in Thompson, where his whole life, with the exception of a single year, has been spent. He attended the common school, and for a short period the high school, after which his attention was given to farming. He also became proficient as a blacksmith, and combined this with his other duties. Mr. Towne entered into a co-partnership with his father, and while farming operated a thresher. He also did more or less teaming. Receiving before his father's death a deed of a portion of the farm, he subsequently added to this a valuable tract by purchase. He also owns fifty acres in Woodstock, which is used as a pasture land for the fattening of beef for the market.

Mr. Towne is a director of the Thompson Savings Bank. He has been for many years director and for two years president of the Woodstock Agricultural Society. He is in politics a republican, was for the years 1873 and 1854 a member of the Connecticut house of representatives, has been for seven years a selectman, and for a long period on the school district committee. He has been for thirty-two years an active, exemplary and useful member of the Congregational church of Thompson, and a portion of that time one of its deacons. He was November 29th, 1848, married to Lucy Ann, daughter of Jason Wakefield, of the same town. Their only child, a son, died in his fourteenth year. He was again married July 6th, 1856, to Mary J., daughter of Paul Kinney, of Union, Connecticut. Their children are Lucy A., George V. and Adfer M.

41 (Research):MITCHENER MARCHAND LASBURY - Citizens of Griggsville, both young and old, were shocked and saddened Monday afternoon when the news reached them of the sudden death of M. M. [Mitchener Marchand] Lasbury, known to everyone as "Twin."

Mr. Lasbury was in his usual health when he went to work in his garden Monday afternoon. Coming into the house a little later he had just sat down to play a game of rummie with Lew Hitch, his genial companion who lives in their home, when he was stricken with a heart attack and leaning back in his chair, died instantly.

Mr. Lasbury was born in London, England, April 21, 1864, and was one of twins, his brother dying in infancy. He came to America with his parents Thomas and Emma Wall White Lasbury, when he was three years of age.

The family located in the Griggsville community where Mr. Lasbury had always made his home. He was married to Miss Minnie Pratt on March 8, 1899. She passed away in March 1920. One son was born to them, who died in infancy.

They took into their home , tiny six months' old Margaret Richards, a niece. To her was given all the love and care they would have given their own. It was a sad shock to them when she died at the age of 18.

Another little girl, Katrina Williams, now Mrs. Russell Doake of Los Angles, Calif., was taken into their home, and was a great comfort and joy to them for several years.

Mrs. Emma McConnell, a sister of Mr. Lasbury and the only remaining member of the Lasbury family, went to live with her brother several years ago. The brother and sister and Mr. Hitch have enjoyed a comfortable life in their pleasant home on South Stanford street in Griggsville.

For many years Mr. Lasbury had taken great pride in his ability to make things grow. His truck gardens which he operated as a business a number of years ago, were to him a source of genuine pleasure as well as profit. Even after going into business with T.M. Yates, operating the Pike Mills, his garden was his chief source of relaxation. Few citizens, if any, have been better known in their community than was M.M. Lasbury.

His wit, his hearty laugh and friendliness made him remembered by all who knew him. His greatest pleasure was in making children happy. It was this love of little folks which stimulated his interest in the Community Christmas tree which had been an annual custom the past twenty years. He served as chairman of this organization for the past 15 years, and seeing Mr. Lasbury lead the grand march to the Christmas tree was a traditional a treat to the children as the appearance of Santa Clause himself. Only Monday morning he was greatly concerned as to what they could get for the children at Christmas with the war time shortages.

Another organization on which he served faithfully was the Red Cross. AS president of the chapter he was always on hand when there was an opportunity for the Red Cross to serve. He was a familiar figure to the soldiers who were stationed there during the last spring's flood, providing them with stationery, etc., and arranging for special food to add variety to the regular army fare.

Mr. Lasbury had been a member of the Masonic order for 53 years and was presented a fifty year medal by the Griggsville lodge to which he belonged, and of which he was justly proud. He was also a charter member of the Order of Eastern Star.

Serving as a member of the Library board had been another interest and pleasure. Several times Mayor of Griggsville, he has always been identified with the best interests of the city, and was always an active worker for anything that would benefit his home town.

Mr. Lasbury occupied a unique place in the hearts of he people in his community and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

Funeral services were held this afternoon at 2:30 at the Skinner Funeral Home. As was his wish, Griggsville lodge No. 45, A.F. and A.M. was in charge of the service. A prayer was offered by the Rev. Samuel J. Buck, pastor of the Methodist Church. Interment was in the Griggsville Cemetery.
