Daniel Collett, Sr., the youngest son of Moses Collett, was born February
10, 1752 in Maryland, twenty miles west of Baltimore. He remained at home
until 1772, when, at the age of twenty years he left Maryland and settled
in Jefferson Co. VA on the road leading from Charleston to Harpers Ferry.
He married about the year 1780 to Mary, a daughter of Joshua Haines,( who
died December 11, 1754) and by her had eight sons and a daughter, born as
follows: Joshua, November 20, 1781, Moses, March 28, 1783, Moses, March
6, 1784, Isaac, August 28, 1785, Jonathan, April 25, 1787, Aaron, January
21, 1789, Mercy, September 19, 1790, Benjamin, June 11, 1793 and Daniel,
October 1, 1795. Daniel Collett resided there forty years, and was for
many years a Justice of the Peace in that state, appointed, as they were
in those days in Virginia, for life or during good behavior.It was not
until after he was appointed that he learned to write, his instructor
being a Mr. Hibben. He held his courts monthly, and it is said that more
dignity and decorum attended a Justice's court in Virginia in those days
than are to be seen in the higher courts of Ohio at this day. On one
occasion, the Judge of the courts of Jefferson assessed a fine on each of
the Justices of that county for the neglect to provide and erect sutiable
steps to the jail at Charlestown. Justice Collett paid his fine, and then
took the contract for the erection of the stone steps that now grace the
front of that historic edifice. His son, Jonathan Collett, hauled the
stone and also part of the lumber and timber used in the construction of
the United States arsenal at Harpers Ferry.
Daniel remained in Jefferson County until 1812, or until sixty years of
age, when he sold out his lands and came to Ohio, and settled temporarily
in Warren County. In the early part of 1814, he returned to Virginia and
purchased of James Smith, Sr., the undivided one-half of Survey 1994, the
consideration being $5,895 currant funds of the United States, the actual
number of acres being 2, 358. Mr. Collett returned to Clinton County Ohio
the same year and settled on his purchase.

Pittsburger, Missing for 21 Years, Found

Pasadena, Cal., Oct. 8 - Missing for 21 years, Alexander B. Nevin, first husband of Mrs. W. A. Stanton, wife of a prominent southern California capitalist, and mistress of the imposing Grace Hill estate opposite of the Hotel Raymond, has been discovered through his handwriting.

According to his son, Nevin, who formerly was a wealthy banker of Sewickley, Pa., is acting under an assumed name, as agent for a large estate in Florida. Nevin's whereabouts was learned through the recognition of his handwriting by the postmaster at Sewickley. The postmaster informed Franklin L. Nevin, brother of the missing banker, whose search led him to Florida and discovery of his missing brother. No complications will attend the finding of Nevin, as his wife obtained a divorce before marrying Stanton.

124 An odd site note to Sarah's passing:

He Wants The Widow's Estate

[by telegraph to the Herald]

West Chester, Pa, July 13, 1888 . Some time ago, Mrs. Sarah Brinley McConkey, an aged lady, died here, leaving a fortune estimated at $900,000. which she willed to her nephews. Now Emmanuel Johnson, of Meyersdale, Somerset county, Pa., lays claim to the estate, asserting that he is Mrs. McConkey's adopted son. Today Johnson came here and was shown the will in the Register's office. He looked it over carefully and then said:

"She left me everything. I will investigate this thing. They are trying to keep this away from me, but I'll show them. I have served on the farm she left me in Somerset."

"When did she leave it to you?" asked the Deputy Register.

"The very night she died. It was by secret communication."

"Then you are a Spiritualist, are you?" asked the Deputy Register. Johnson left the office without making answer and has not been seen since.
