Back to Top of Tiny Tafel


Solomon BURT


Family 1: Elizabeth HOYLE
Notes

!Came from Somersetshire, England in 1848.
Listed in 1850 Census; Greenfield, Wayne Co., MI.
Listed in 1860 Census; Redford, Wayne Co., MI.
BURT,BURTT, (Eng.) Descendant of Bert (bright), who is descendant of Beorht.
!Solomon Burt came to Michigan in 1819, according to the story handed down through the family members in the Westlake branch, and described in a paper written by Warren "Henry" Burt, a grandson, during the 1940's for an historical play put on by some Redfrod High School students, commemorating the founding of Redford Village (formerly called Sand Hill). It was stated by Warren that Solomon Burt was the third settler in the Township of Redford, just as family members had described, after first, Mr. Bell, and second, Mr. Geldard, but he was the first to settle in the Village (now known as Olde Redford and a part of northwest Detroit). It was also stated that Solomon again arrived in 1825, and at this point, one must conjecture that he either went back to England or to Massachusettes to get his family members. Since the Erie Canal opened in 1825 or 1827, transportation between these areas was made a little easier.
Solomon and his family established a farm on 40 acres on the south side of the old Shiawassee Indian Trail, which later became the Toll Road to Lansing, and is now known as Grand River and Six Mile Road. The original Shiawassee Trail roamed at times close to the Rouge River, and Shiawassee Street of Road, from Grand River in Redford to Grand River in Farmington, is a remnant of the original trail. At one time, Shiawassee at Grand River in Redford was called 13 Mile Rd., since it was exactly thirteen miles from that point to the Detroit Settlement. Approximately 16 miles from Detroit, there was a stage couach stop and an inn on the toll roads. It was taken over by Milton C. Botsford and became Botsford Inn, stage coach stop, hostelry, saloon, and local entertainment center where people went from miles around for the dances. In the 1880's this included such people as Henry Ford I and Clara Bryant, who later became his wife.
The Burts were known to be short, stocky people with the gene for red hair and complexion to match. They were all in the business of farming in Michigan, and thus made trips to England for cattle. Some of the family members served on the local school boards. The Burts gave the first property for a school in Olde Redford (Sand Hill), leasing out the land for $1 for 99 years. The school was built on the Burt property owned by the Burts/Gares and Mr. Wilmarth and the Grand River Toll Road. Mr. Wilmarth was the first teacher. AS the years went by, the old school was replaced by a two story brick which eventually became the first Redford High School, then later transformed into the Redford Branch of Detroit Receiving Hosptal, and is now the site of the New Redford Public Library. In the 1930's a newer Burt Elementary was built on the Burt farm, on a 100 year lease and possibly deeded.
One of Solomon's antecedents had been an Advocate in the Inner Temple, London, and the family had come from "Near where King Alfred had burnt the Cakes." (In the history books, Alfred is said to have been a great king during the 9th century and saved Wessex from the Norsemen during a long, bloody battle in which London was burned). It has also been stated that Solomon, or perhaps his father, had a brother who had been a bodyguard to the King in the Royal Guard.

Notes

!Date of death: 9 April 1687[GG]{DO}
!Arrived in New England aft 1643. William was a Quaker and his wife, Mary, was a "vagabond" "travelling" Quaker missionary. Per Little Compton Families which cites the Tallman family records by William M. Emery, "William Gifford, a member os the Society of Friends, is found at Sandwich in 1650. although he suffered the persecutions visited upon the Quakers of that time, he prospered in material affairs and became a large land owner. It is supposed that he was the William Gifford who in 1647 or earlier was ordered by the court at Stanford to be whippped and banished. He lived at Sandwich until his death 9 Apr 1687.
He was there except for the years 1665 - 1670, when he and others became proprietors of Monmouth Co., N.J., by purchase of land from the Indians. In a deed by his son Christopher, he was described as a tailor. On 10 Nov Mr. Gifford bought of mistress, Sarah Warren of Plymouth, widow of Richard Warren, one half her share in the land at Dartmouth, which by deed 6 May 1683 he gave equally to his sons Christopher and Robert. He also owned land in Sandwich, Falmouth, and Rhode Island.

Raphael METTETAL

Father: Eli METTETAL
Mother: Della DUNNING

Family 1: Stella Mary WESTLAKE
Notes

!Raphael (Ray) started his first greenhouse around 1910 at Schoolcraft and St. Mary Ave. in Redford, on 20 acres he purchased fron his uncle Theophilus Mettetal.
At the time, Stella was studying piano at the Detroit Conservatory of Music, from which she graduated on 2 June 1910. She sold eggs from her parents farm to raise the money she needed to attend. One of her classmates was Della Mettetal Kuster, Ray's sister, who instroduced them to each other. Della, who became a vocal teacher in the Detroit Public Schools, is the author of the 1965 edition of the Genealogical Record of the Mettetal Family (1728-1965).
In the summer of 1920, after their first three children (Raphael, Mary and Robert) were born, Ray and Stella sold the farm in Redford and moved to Canton.
They purchased 20 acres on the west side of Lilley Road, and 80 acres on the east side. The cost of land was less in Canton than in Redford, and it was still close to Detroit, where Ray operated Western Market Stall #100 for many years, where he was known as "Cauliflower King". Other Redford area farmers later followed Ray's example and moved to Canton.
They moved into an old house on the east side of Lilley Road. That fall they added the first of three (Edith, Virginia, and Eli) children to be born while they lived in the old Canton house. In 1924, Ray designed and built a new home for his growing family. Located on the west side of Lilley, the two-story brick house contained oak floors and a fireplace flanked by beveled glass bookcases. It provided the family with five bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms. Ray also added a three-car garage, that was later converted in to an apertment.
While living in their new home, their last four children (Nelda, Esther, Lewis, and Marvin) were born.
Ray was very active with the Masons, becoming Redford's 21st Master back in 1915. He remained active as a Past Master, installing around the state. He obtained two patents; one for a paper mulcher, and one for the design of conservatory benches for greenhouses. He was fond of bowling, horseshoes, billiards, checkers, chess, and playing cards.
Stella taught piano, and was active in the garden club, the Grange, the PTA at Hough School, and the Eastern Star. She taught all her daughters to sew and encouraged them in the 4-H. She also encouraged music in the home.
Ray and Stella were faithful and active church members. Stella played the organ for Calvin Presbyterian, and sang in the choir at Plymouth Presbyterian Church. Ray also sang in the choir, served as alderman, and was Superintendent of the Sunday School. Stella's love for church-going is credited by her children for saving their lives one Saturday night in 1935. With the family asleep, Stella stayed up late washing clothes for the family to wear to church and Sunday School. When smoke began filtering into the kitchen from the basement, she roused the family and everyone got out safely. Ray, who fought the fire until the fire department arrived, was burned and suffered heart damage.
Around 1939 Ray rented one of his fields to the Norhtville Branta Flying Club for use as a landing area. During WWII the Wayne County (now Detroit Metropolitan) Airport and the Romulus Air Base stopped allowing small aircraft to land, and the landing strip became busier. Ray decided to operate it himself, and Mettetal Airport came into being. It expanded to meet the need: an office was built in 1940, then a large hanger was added (which burned down in 1943 and had to be rebuilt), a shop was built in 1942, and T-hangers were erected. Ray got help with the work from sons Robert, Marvin and Lewis and son-in-law Robert Scheppele.
The Civil Air Patrol was active at the airport. Its members looked for downed pilots and missing persons, patrolled airports to prevent theft of planes, and patrolled coastlines. Robert served as clearance officer, and young Raphael was a guard. Ray and Robert Scheppele were members. Robert, along with brother-in-law William Ryan, served as flight instructors, and , around 1946, organized the Plymouth Aero Company. In 1943 a P-39 Air Cobra crashed behind the Greenhouse while Ray and an employee were sowing seed nearby.
Ray raised the old home and two barns on the east side of Lilley in the 1950's, when the house was over 100 years old, using an old road grader. Its spot is now occupied by a commercial building. Ray and Stella retired to Oakland Lake in Clinton, MI around 1950, building a retirement home on about six acres of lakeside property, complete with an underground sprinkling system. They continued to grow and sell Delhiniums and other flowers there, and hosted very large family gatherings with the children and many grandchildren. Ray continued his bowling, horseshoes, and cards that he loved. They donated part of their land so that the United Presbyterian Church of Atonement could be built there.

After three years in Philadelphia, Pierre went to Wahington, D.C. where through a friend in 1829, he became Steward in th Spanish Embassy and later became Emissary for President Jackson. He remained as Emissary until 1835. In this capacity, he often talked with President Jackson of whom he was an ardent admirer. He was also an acquaintance of Lewis Cass, who at that time was an Secretary of War, and had previously been Governor of Michigan Territory. He also numbered among his friends, Stephen T. Mason - Michigan's first Governor and , Henry Rowe Schoolcraft - ethnologist, author and explorer.
Peter, who was getting lonely to see his brother Frederick (the only other member of his family in the United States until about 1848), and wanting to own a farm - for which he had been saving his wages - listened to his brother's pleas to come to Michigan, which was then a territory. Frederick apprised Peter of the impending sale of 80 acres of good farm land on Schoolcraft Road, one half mile from Grand River. As soon as the papers could be conpleted at the Land Office, Ontario County, New York, on July 11, 1836, Peter became the proud possessor of a farm for which he paid $320.00. This property was acquired through a land patent of land grant from the U.S. Land Office in May 1835, by Irad French. However, the lingering illness of Mrs. French forced him to sell the farm and move to Texas.
Peter had to blaze a trail to his property and made what he termed a "dugout" of logs banked up with sod. There he lived alone until he could clear the land in order to till a garden and raise his own food and corn to feed his cow. He then built a two-story log house. The logs were "faced" on the inside and covered with siding on the outside. To this home, Peter brought his bride; brown-eyed, curly-haired Angelique Martine, and there three of their eight children were born.
Peter cleared and tilled his land, planted a large orchard, raised sheep and cattle, cut cord wood and made charcoal, thich - with his excess farm produce - he drew to market with his oxen and wagon. Angelique carded and spun the wool, knit socks, gloves and mittens, wove some of their wool blankets, raised chickens, made rag rugs and carpets, made their clothes and "dipped" candles. In 1850, Peter built a frame home of seven rooms, in which they raised their four sons and four daughters.
Peter served a term as juror, walking the eight miles each way to the courtroom. He had a strong tenor voice and upon his return home - when he was one-half mile away - he began to sing the "Marseillaise" so the family could hear him and have a hot supper on the table when he arrived.
He was a staunch Democrat like his ideal Andrew Jackson, although he conpaigned for President Harrison - giving stump speeches and singing political songs. He also held the position of Commissioner of Roads for many years.
When Schoolcraft Road was made a "corduroy" road (paved with logs), Peter donated the required number of logs to pave the entire width of his farm. In the 1920's when Schoolcraft was made a macadam raod, Eli Mettetal, Peter and Angelique's youngest son, asked the road crew to watch for any good parts of the old corduroys. Several in good condition were found and given to Eli, who was still living on the property, on Mettetal Avenue. From these logs, he had a cane and a gun rack made. A copper plate with an inscription about Peter Mettetal and the Road Commission is fastened to the gun rack.
Peter spent much of his spare time studying law and medicine. Consequently he was advisor on legal matters to the old pioneer families near him. He often remarked that in those days, people borrowed and lent money "without the scratch of the pen", and many times deals were made in which the money due was paid by the debtor to Peter, although it might be weeks before the creditor collected it. No charge was made for these services but he received what he valued most...their friendship and their knowlidge of his unquestioned integrity.
When Peter was 79 years old, he leased his farm to his youngest son, Eli, who built a large farmhouse near by and he and his wife raised their six children there.
Peter Mettetal remained in his home until September 1904 when he and his wife went to live with their son, Theophilus, on Perry Street in Detroit. That November he walked to Grand River to vote for Teddy Roosevelt, whom he said was the better candidate. Peter was then 96 years old. He could read without glasses and had his first automobile ride around Belle Isle, when 97 years of age. He died in June 1905 and Angelique went to live at the home of a daughter, Mrs. Elizabeth Guilloz, and later with another daughter, Mrs. Clara Smith, where she died in 1911 at the age of 94. Both Pierre and Angilique, and a daughter Eugenie, are buried in the old pioneer cemetery, Bell Branch, on Telegraph Rd., Detroit, Michigan.
Peter's garden, which he worked and kept weedless until he was past 90 yrs. old, was a gathering place for the farmers in the area. Each kind of vegtable or herb had its own plot of ground, with paths in between. There were large trees bordoring the road on one side of the garden and under them, he kept a chair on which he took frequent rests. As the farmers came from the market or from shopping, they stopped and visited him under the trees. Oftem he would sing some of his old French songs, in a loud, clear voice, while he was resting. He had a habit of talking to himself and when asked why he did that - with a twinkle in his eye - he replied, "When I want to talk to a smart man, I talk to myself."
Angelique's flower garden was a thing of beauty. It bordered both sides of the board sidewalk which led fromthe house to the road. Purple lilacs, pink and red hollyhocks and pink roses flanked each side of the gate. In the garden were many varieties of both annuals and perennials which bloomed in gay profusion from early Spring with tulips, hyacinths, narcissus, violets and daffodils until the frost mipped the last of the chrysanthemums in the late Fall. In the center of each garden grew a 'hen and chickens' enveloped with a metal hoop to limit their spreading. Every family in the vicinity had a similar garden since each housewife exchanged seeds, bulbs or roots with their neighbors.
A small creek ran through the farm. On its banks grew elderberry bushes that furmished millions of purple berries for pies and wine. When the creek ran dry in the summer, horseradish which grew in the creekbed, was dug and grated. In the woods at the end of the farm, were large blackberries. In the middle of a field was a hickory nut tree and bordering the road by Peter's garden, were some walnut trees.
In the orchard were trees with big, red apples and some russet apples that had a flavor all their own; another kind was called the 'pound apple' as that is what they would grow to weigh. Bushels of apples for winter were kept in a root cellar which was made of brick and banked high with sod. When the apples were ripe, the smaller ones and the best of the windfalls were picked up and drawn to Becker's Cider Mill, on Becker Road (now Burt Rd.), where they were crushed into cider; to drink while it remained sweet - then a barrel was kept for vinegar. Also in the orchard were some large cherry trees and a grape patch with blue Concord grapes and sweet red and white grapes. On each side of the path to the grapes, was a pear tree which bore small, but very tasty 'sugar' pears which Angelique pickled whole. Two old pear trees, grown from seeds of pears gathered from the old trees in front of Assumption Church on Sandwich, Canada, stood in back of Peter's house. Angelique brought them here directly after their marriage in that church in 1841.
Upon the death of Pierre Mettetal, twenty acres of the farm on Schoolcraft Rd. were inherited by each of four of his children, while the two remaining children each inherited forty acres of a farm on Greenfield Townline.
In 1868, the Detroit & Howell R.R. purchased land for that railroad to cross the southern end of the eighty acres. Later the Lansing & Northern R.R. acquired the right-of-way, which was later sold to the Pere Marquette R.R. On August 26, 1919, sixty acres, including the streets of Asbury Park, Mettetal, St. Mary's - Mansfield Ave., were sold to Luther S. Trowbridge of Detroit, who plotted it into 367 lots and named it Orchard Grove Park. About thirty acres of this land had been planted with various kinds of fruit trees, berry bushes and grapevines: hence the name - Orchard Grove Park. Until Mr. Trowbridge sold the entire subdivision to the Grand Riviera Land Company in 1925, he paid the former owners to pick and market the fruit for him. The other twenty acres, between Mansfield and Rutherford Avenues, were sold to B.E. Taylor Real Estate Company.
Mettetal Avenue was the name first given to what is now St. Marys Ave. Someone had the name changed, to which the pioneer families strongly objected, and so a petition to have the name restored to "Mettetal" was circulated.(1) When the petition was brought to Eli Mettetal, he asked that the name "St. Marys" be given to what had been Mettetal Ave. since that street led directly to St. Marys Church, and the name "Mettetal" be given to thenext street west(2) - which was done. Only one descendent, Mrs. William Kuster, remained on the property on St. Marys Avenue.(3)
All but Emile, eldest son of Pierre and Angelique, became public school teachers.
(1)As written by Louis Chalvre of Redford - son of an old pioneer.
(2)Eli Mettetal built a beautiful home on Mettetal Avenue and he and his wife spent their remaining years there.

Notes

!Jacob patchen was made freeman, Mar.18, 1689, and in 1962 was appointed adminsistrator of the estate of Samuel Grumman, late of Fairfield. 1692/3, Samuel Adams purchased from Jacob Patchen, with consent of his wife, part of the long lot laid out to John Grumman dec'd.
Mar 24 1694'5, his wife renewed her covenant, and Aug.3, 1746, admitted to full communion; Mar.24, 1694/5, her daughter, Mary Brumman, was baptized, with Joseph and Abigail Patchen, children of her second marriage. The will of William Hubbard, dated Oct.10, 1702, probated NOv.25, 1702, reads, in part: "I William Hubbard give my son-in-law Jacob Patchen my cloak and the clothes I now have on and the best pair of shoes I have. And to my daughter Mary Patchen the bed I lie on and the appurtenances thereto. . .All residue one half to daughter Mary Patchen and one half to daughter Sara Bennit. I give the residue of my wearing clothes herein not before disposed of unto my son-in-law Thomas Bennit. I give unto my son William Hubbard meadows at Greenwich."
As there are several mentions made of Jacob Patchen in the Fairfield church records, we give them as of interest to his decendants, although as he had moved to Norwalk, Wilton Parish, before NOv.13, 1746, on which date he "of Norwalk" conveyed to son Jacob, Sr. may have continued in the Fairfield church.

Joseph PATCHIN

Mother: Goodwife ?

Family 1: Mary MOREHOUSE?
Notes

!Joseph Patchen-Patching came to America in the ship Hercules as second servant of Thomas Besbeech from Ashford, Kent, England. He settled first in Roxbury, MA, in a place called Newks, near Boston. Removed to Farifield, CT by 1652 and testified as Joseph Sr.,ae.56, in the Benfield case, May 1, 1666.
*According to New England Historical and Genealogical Register, his first wife came from Biddenden, Co.,Kent, and the Castle, in 1638 with husband Stephen and children, of whom the former died on the passage. Another passenger died at sea and left money to Elizabeth for her care of him.
*Jacobus, in The Families of Old Fairfield II part 9, p. 1077 states - New England Historical and Genealogical Register is wrong. Elizabeth Iggleden, not his (Stephen's) widow who came to New England. She came with children Jane, Sarah and John as members of the household of Thomas Besbeech of Ashford, Elizabeth Iggleden's son John became Joseph Patchen's stepson.
*Since Elizabeth brought a son John with her and married Joseph Patchen, our suggestion that John "Eggleden" of Fairfield was Patchen's stepson is probably correct.
*On Oct. 29, 1646 _____Egheden, stepdaughter to Joseph Patchen about 10 years old "Dyed of a paine first in her head then in her back". New Eng. Hist. & Gen. Reg. v.65,p.187.
*Rachel Biggs in her will dated Nov. 17 1646, recorded in Suffolk Co., MA, gives _____ to "poor Goodwife Hill and Goodwife Patching tenn shillings apiece."
*"Goodwife Patchin, a poor old woman," i.e., sick old woman who joined Roxbury Church, Mar 16, 1649 may have been mother of Joseph. Yet his wife Elizabeth must have been considerably, perhaps a decade, older than himself, and in the view of that period a woman of 50 years sometimes qualified for the term "old".
*Nov. 3, 1651, Benjamin Child witnessed a deed for ten acres and a halfe sold by Joseph Patchin of Roxbury to John Dane of the same town (Suff. Deed, 1:145, in Linzee's History of Peter Parker and Sarah Ruggles of Roxbury, MA, p. 382).
*He removed to Fairfield by 1652, was granted a home lot 1655/6, and was one of four 'poor men' whose debts were forgiven by Dr. Pell in his will 1669 (this may have been for medical services). He was living 1689 when his son was still "Jr."
*His second wife also testified in the Benfield case, 1666. Much of his property in Fairfield came into possession of the Edward Adams family, probably not by inheritance. Quite likely there was a relationship, but just what cannot be said; Patchen realty may have been turned over to the Adamses in return for Maintenance.
*His two sons accompanied him to Fairfield, CT, by 1652 where he was granted the home lot on Jan. 29, 1655. In 1658 styled as 'Joseph Pachen, Sr.' and in list of Fairfield landowners from 1649-52. Bought land Apr. 22 and Apr 28, 1658, July 12, 1666, Oct.3, 1672, Oct.4, 1672, May 11, 1681, Nov.9, 1684 (land holder in Stratford CT from Dec.1668-71). Sold land Apr 23, 1671, Oct 3 and 4, 1672, May 23, 1676, Feb.24, 1681. The title Jr. does not appear until after 1681 when Joseph, SR. sells and disappears from the records. Then Joseph Patchin sells land jointly with Joseph Middlebrook, one acre, 1686.
*Schenck's Hist. of fairfield, CT, p.329, No. VI, mentions Joseph Patchin; 334, 1670/1, Patchin, Sr., 4 and 3 acres; 337, grant of part of Old Indian field, 8 acres, Joseph Patchin; 339, division of lots at Compo Neck, Lot #76, 60 acres, Joseph Patchin; 346, Jacob Patchin freeman Mar. 1689/90.
*Joseph Jr., 1680 was apointed to sweep the meeting house. Inventory Dec. 10, 1689; estate insolvent; no land; clothing and tobacco at house of Nathan Adams; administration granted to Jonathan Morehouse. (Fairfield Probate Records, v.3:299.) Henry B. Betts of Danbury, wrote Aug.16, 1911, "In last issue of the (Hartford) Times, a correspondent familiar with Fairfield Records, says - Also repeated references (land Rec.) show that the second Joseph (Patchen) who was unmarried and not bright, died at the home of Nathan Adams and the Adams families took his estate."
*On Oct. 26, 1692, Robert Sillman and Nathan Adams exchange land, lots to run back to land once the property of Edward Adams and Joseph Patchen, both deceased, now owned by Nathan Adams - Fairfield L.R.,v.A:355. Abraham, Nathan, Daniel, David and John Adams and Luke Guire, son-in-law of Edward Adams, divide land of Edward Adams and Joseph Patchen. - Ibid.,v.3:227. Jan.21, 1713/4, have land laid out to Joseph Patchen and agree to divide part of long lots that were Edward Admas and Joseph Patchen's - Ibid., v.B:136.
*Joseph Patchen, Jr. hath made application to the Townsmen, Apr. 27, 1681; he hath a house and land in Fairfield but wants Town help in improving same.
-Ibid.,v.B:136.
*Town paid for his funeral expenses, and on Dec 10 1689, estate pronounced insolvent, but on Oct.26, 1692, when James Everts buys land of Joseph Patchen, SR., now land of Nathan Adams, one of the boundaries is the 'land of Joseph Patchen, Jr., deceased, now the land of Nathan Adams,' 'no lands' on probate record. Everts buys 1/2 acre of Joseph Patchen's home lot, bounded on the north by the Milne Pond, formerly land of Joseph Jr., deceast. Rebecca, wife of Daniel3 Samuel2 Edward1 Adams may have been daughter of John Cable, if so, then aunt of Margary and Abigail Cable, who married grandsons of Joseph Patchen, Sr. Also, decendants of Thomas Morehouse married into the Patchen family at least fourteen times.
*Sometime before Oct.4,1672, Jonathan, son Thomas Morehouse, purchased from Joseph Patchen,Sr., his house on Wolf Pit Plain which sometime had Pretayned to Thomas Morehouse. By Mar.22, 1681, he had purchased from Joseph Patchen, Sr., all his interests within the bounds of Fairfield.
*The first Wolfpit Plain was Sea Side Park formerly owned by the Sasquam Indians.

Notes

!George came from England in 1848.
Listed in the 1850 Census as George WESTLAKE, Redford, Wayne Co., MI.
Listed in the 1860 Census as George WESTLAKE, Detroit Ward 4, Wayne Co., MI.
Elizabeth and George purchased land from the original land grant owner on West Seven Mile Rd. between Evergreen and Southfield and they lived in the original log cabin where their four children were born. Following the birth of Edward in October, 1864, Elizabeth died and the baby was allowed to be raised by Charlotte and Edward Gare. Eventually, George remarried to a friend and neighbor, Sarah Curran and they had two children. They built a large white farmhouse on the site where Sunderland Street runs today. In 1888, George died and Sarah later married William Lewis.
