Baltis Stone

M, b. 7 June 1747, d. 22 October 1846
ChartsAncestors of Chuck Wolfram
     Baltis Stone also had his name recorded as Bolltus It appears as such in recording his birth in the family Bible.1 He was born on 7 June 1747.2 He was also listed as being born, according to several different published authorities which recorded his age at death as 103 years, 16 days, on 6 October 1743.1,3,4 He served in the military as a private in the Pennsylvania Continental Militia during the Revolutionary War in 1776.5 He was the presumed father of Hannah Stone. I have not seen any documented evidence stating the specific relationship between Baltis and Hannah. He was either 57 or 62 years old at the time of Hannah's birth, and although it is not impossible for him to be her father it is more likely for him to be her grandfather. We know that Baltis lived with Hannah and her husband, and his name is in the family Bible, but without statement as to his relationship. Baltis Stone was a day labourer in June 1818 in Philadelphia.6 He was illiterate, having made his mark in June 1818.7 Baltis applied for a military pension in District Court, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, on 6 June 1818. This was for his service in the Revolutionary War, under the act of 18 March 1818, which authorized pensions for veterans in need.7 Baltis Stone was also known as Baltus Stone. He died of senile mortification on 22 October 1846 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, at age 99 years, 4 months and 15 days.8,9,10 He was buried in Union Cemetery, 6th Street below Washington Avenue, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.11,10 He was reburied in 1906 in Arlington Cemetery, Lansdowne, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.12
     Baltis Stone appeared on the census enumerated on 1790 in Mojamensing & Passyunk Township, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. Baltis is recorded as the head of the family, the only free white male over the age of sixteen years. He lived with two free white males under the age of 16 years and two free white females.13 He appeared on the census of 1810 in East Southwalk, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. In his household, consisting of five persons, there was one free white male under the age of 10 years, one free white male over the age of 45 years, two free white females under the age of 10 years, and one free white female over the age of 45 years.14 Baltis was listed as the head of a family on the 1830 Census in East Southwalk, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. He was likely the free white male, aged at least 70 and under 80 years old. Two others were living with him, a free white male at least 20 years and under 30, and a free white female at least 20 years and under 30 years of age.15 Baltis was probably a free white male, age 90 and under 100, in George Vessels Copes's household, on the 1840 Census in Southwark, 2nd Ward, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. He was named as a 96-year-old pensioner for Revolutionary or miltary service. The unususal thing about this is that he appears on line 4 of page 63 of the census, in the household of Phelix Hill, who does not have anybody living with him who was at least 90 years old; George Copes, on page 62, did..16

Charles Copes

M, b. circa 1767
ChartsAncestors of Chuck Wolfram
     Charles Copes was born in England.1 Charles Copes was also known as ? Copes. He was born circa 1767 in Accomac County, Virginia.2 He married Louisa Wessells, daughter of Elijah Wessells and Sophia Clark, circa 1799.2 Charles Copes was the probable father of Charles Copes and George Vessels Copes. I have no proof that Charles Copes the surgeon was the older brother of George Vessels Copes, but who else could he be? They both were born in Virginia and moved to Southwalk, in Philadelphia County. Charles is recorded in the Family Bible which is in our possession. Why would he be recorded in there if he wasn't George's brother? Would a cousin be included? Doubtful--there were others who were probably cousins already in Southwalk. Presume they are brothers. Charles Copes, the husband of Louisa, is a heir to his mother-in-law and she gives him the suffix of "Sr." in her will. It indicates there is a younger Charles in the same area. It usually, but not necessarily refers to his son. The Charles who later became a Navy surgeon had just been born. The mother's maiden name is WESSELLS which could become VESSELLS in some records. That is carried as George's middle name. Charles was listed as the head of a family on the 1820 Census in Accomac County, Virginia. He was the one listed as a free white male aged 45 years or more. It was a five member household all of whom were free white persons. There were two males under the age of ten years, a female age 10 and under 16 and a female age 26 years and under 45..3

He died around midnight. The mistaken date arises from closeness of the hour.21,22 His obituary appeared in The Atlantic City Press, Atlantic City, Atlantic County, New Jersey, on circa 9 October 1949. It read:
      Harry G. Kline, 69,
Ex-Laundry Operator

     Harry G. Kline, 69, brother of Jay G. Kline, of this city, died on Saturday at his home, 15 S. Fourth st., Pleasantville.

     Carl Valdemar Thomsen was born on 14 December 1861 in Fredericia, Elbo herrad, Vejlo amt., Denmark.3,4,5,1,2 Conflicting evidence states that Carl was born erroneously, on 14 December 1861 in Copenhagen, Copenhagen (Københaven), Denmark.6 He was the son of Carsten Thomsen and Henriette Catherine Harder.2 Carl Valdemar Thomsen was also known as Carl W. Thomsen. (see also for an image of his christening record.) He was vaccinated against the smallpox on 19 July 1866 in Ngborg, Denmark, at age 4 years, 7 months and 5 days.7 He lived with his parents Carsten Thomsen and Henriette Catherine Harder between 1863 and 1876 in the Fred section of Trinitias parish, Fredericia, Elbo herrad, Vejlo amt., Denmark.8,9,10 Carl Valdemar Thomsen was confirmed on 23 April 1876 in Trinitatis parish church, Fredericia, Elbo herrad, Vejlo amt., Denmark, at age 14 years, 4 months and 9 days.11 He did very good on both parts of his confirmation examination.12 He married Johanne Frederikke Zerakitsky, daughter of Jörgen Zerakitzky and Johanne Lauridsen, on 7 June 1889 in the church, Skjern, Bølling, Ringkøbing, Denmark.1,13,14,15 Carl Valdemar Thomsen and Johanne emigrated in 1889 from Hamburg, Germany. The story I received is that they left immediately after their marriage for the United States, leaving from the port at Hamburg.16,17,18 As of 1890, Carl Valdemar Thomsen was also known as Carl Thomsen. He and Johanne were Lutherans before 1890 in Denmark. When they came to this country, they resolved that English would be spoken. They attended a Lutheran Church once they came here--and the preacher said from the pulpit that it was their duty, in order to uphold the Commandment that you honor your parents,--the congregation being Danish Lutheran--for the people to speak Danish and to give support to the Danish government, to preserve their Danish heritage and embrace all things Danish. It did not go over well with them, especially not with Johanne. They did not come to this country to speak Danish or support the Danish nation, but to be Americans and to speak English. They soon after started attending the Presbyterian Church. Carl Valdemar Thomsen and Johanne were Presbyterians in United States. Carl Valdemar Thomsen and Johanne lived in 1893 in 1937 Cayuga Street, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.19,20,21 Carl Thomsen was naturalized on 2 June 1896 in Courts of Oyer and Terminer and Quarter Sessions of the Peace, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. Conrad Hutt (or Hutli) supported this application for naturalization by swearing that he was well acquainted with Carl Thomsen and that he was a man of good moral character and supportive of the constitutional principles.22 On 20 June 1900 his name was also recorded as Charles Thompson.23 He was a carpenter in 1905.24,25 He was a cabinet maker.26,27,28 In June 1915, Carl was also recorded, in the census, as Carroll Thompsen.29 He and Johanne lived after 1937 in 17 North Wyoming Avenue, Ventnor, Atlantic County, New Jersey.26,30,31 Carl Valdemar Thomsen died at 12:30 a.m. on 26 December 1945 at 17 North Wyoming Avenue, Ventnor, Atlantic County, New Jersey, at age 84 years and 12 days.26 The cause of Carl's death was given as arterosclerosis, otherwise known as heart disease, with a secondary cause of carcinoma of the prostate. The burial record records it as certerio sclerocis.26,31 He was buried on 29 December 1945 in section M, lot 687 center left Greenmount Cemetery, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.26,31 Charles was listed as the head of a family on the 1900 Census at 4545 Bouvier Street, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. He was recorded as being a 36-year-old white male born in December 1863 in Denmark to paents both of whom were born in Denmark. He was married and had been for 11 years. He was a naturalized citizen, immigrating to the United States in 1890 and been here for ten years. He was a carpenter by trade and had not been unemployed during the past year.

     Johanne Frederikke Zerakitsky was born on 19 May 1866 at home3 in Ensig, Skjern sogn, Bølling, Ringkøbing, Denmark.4,5,6,7,8,9,10 She was the daughter of Jörgen Zerakitzky and Johanne Lauridsen.1,2 (see also to see an image of her christening record.) Johanne Frederikke Zerakitsky was a Presbyterian. She was confirmed on 4 April 1880 in the church, Skjern, Bølling, Ringkøbing, Denmark, at age 13 years, 10 months and 16 days.11 She married Carl Valdemar Thomsen, son of Carsten Thomsen and Henriette Catherine Harder, on 7 June 1889 in the church, Skjern, Bølling, Ringkøbing, Denmark.12,13,14,15 Johanne Frederikke Zerakitsky and Carl emigrated in 1889 from Hamburg, Germany. The story I received is that they left immediately after their marriage for the United States, leaving from the port at Hamburg.16,17,18 Johanne Frederikke Zerakitsky and Carl were Lutherans before 1890 in Denmark. When they came to this country, they resolved that English would be spoken. They attended a Lutheran Church once they came here--and the preacher said from the pulpit that it was their duty, in order to uphold the Commandment that you honor your parents,--the congregation being Danish Lutheran--for the people to speak Danish and to give support to the Danish government, to preserve their Danish heritage and embrace all things Danish. It did not go over well with them, especially not with Johanne. They did not come to this country to speak Danish or support the Danish nation, but to be Americans and to speak English. They soon after started attending the Presbyterian Church. Johanne Frederikke Zerakitsky and Carl were Presbyterians in United States. Johanne Frederikke Zerakitsky and Carl lived in 1893 in 1937 Cayuga Street, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.19,20,21 On 20 June 1900 her name was also recorded as Johanna Thompson.22 Johanne Frederikke Zerakitsky and Carl lived after 1937 in 17 North Wyoming Avenue, Ventnor, Atlantic County, New Jersey.23,24,25 Johanne Frederikke Zerakitsky died at 8 p.m. on 25 October 1958 in 17 North Wyoming Avenue, Ventnor, Atlantic County, New Jersey, at age 92 years, 5 months and 6 days. The attending physican was Carl A. Surran, M.D.26,27 The cause of Johanne's death was acute myocarditis, due to cerebral palsey and chronic arthritis. She had suffered from cerebral palsey for three years, and from arthritis for ten years.27,24 She was buried on 29 October 1958 in Greenmount Cemetery, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.27,24 On 9 July 1975, Johanne Frederikke Zerakitsky was also recorded incorrectly on her daughter Johanna's death certificate as Johanna Sirsinski.28
     
Johanna was listed as Charles Thompson's wife on the 1900 Census at 4545 Bouvier Street, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. She was recorded as being a 34-year-old (the number 33 being crossed out) married white female who was born May 1866 in Denmark to parents both of whom were born in Denmark.

She appeared in the census enumerated on 16 June 1915 in 113 North Georgia Avenue, Atlantic City, Atlantic County, New Jersey, as the wife of the head of the household. Johanna was recorded as a 49-year-old white married female born in May 1866. She also had been in the United States for 26 years, and was a housewife. They could both speak English, read and write. They were both born in Denmark, as were their parents32. She appeared in the census enumerated on 17 January 1920 in 113 North Georgia Avenue, Atlantic City, Atlantic County, New Jersey, as the wife of the head of the household.
