Blighton Family

Descendants of Tom Blighton

Generation No. 1

1. TOM1 BLIGHTON was born 1755 in Unknown, and died WFT Est. 1784-1846 in Unknown.

Child of TOM BLIGHTON is:
2. i. THOMAS2 BLIGHTON, b. Bef. 1780, Unknown; d. Bef. 1840, NY.

Generation No. 2

2. THOMAS2 BLIGHTON (TOM1) was born Bef. 1780 in Unknown, and died Bef. 1840 in NY. He married NEELTJE CORNELIA ELEANOR SHARP WFT Est. 1811-1845 in Vermont, daughter of ABRAHAM SHARP and JACOBNYNTJI VAN DUESEN.

Notes for THOMAS BLIGHTON:

See "Biographical and Portrait Encyclopedia of Niagara Co., NY" (Gesham Pub. Co., 1892) and Western New York Land Transactions, 1825-1835." Karen E. Livsey.

The list of children is provided by Wanda Thomas (see under Elijah Blighton ). She also passes on a family legend that Thomas' family estate in England was the site of the later city of Brighton.

(From the pages of Beth Anderson)

The Blighton Family

The first known Blighton emigrant to the US from England was Thomas Blighton, probably the son of Thomas Blighton. Several branches of cousins are diligently searching for more records of Thomas, but without much success. THOMAS Blighton was born about 1790, probably in England. He married Neetjle ( Nellie) Sharp, daughter of Abraham Sharp & Jemima Vandozer. She was born about 1769 probably in Vermont. She died 10 Oct 1847 at Machias, Cattaraugus, Cayuga, NY. They had been in Aurelius, Cayuga, NY in 1800 and 1810; Bennington, Genesee, NY 1820 and 1830 and evidently Thomas had died by 1840 when his widow was in Holland, Erie, NY. However, I had another report that stated he had died 9 June 1861 in Machias.

It is interesting to see all the marriages between Blightons, McWethys and Phelps.

Mary "Myrtle", Charles, Oliver, Glen and Bertha.
The Blightons' lived in Iowa (possibly Winterset, since this is where his parents were living in 1881). About 1884, they moved to Seward, Nebraska. Hirams' sister Lydia had married Doras' brother Oliver and were living there as well. Doras' father Peter, sister Mary Beard and brother Fred were all living in Seward about this time too. By 1888, the Blightons' were in Lincoln, Nebraska. Shortly after 1888 they went to Des Moines, Iowa. By 1894 the Blightons' were living in Ames and settled in Palo Alto County by 1900. Hiram was a farmer in this county and later had a restaurant in Emmestsburg. In 1913 they lived in Winterset, Iowa. By 1917 they moved to Meeker County, Minnesota where Dora Passed away at the age of 58. No obituary is available to provide unanswered question. In 1920 Hiram was living in Ayrshire, Iowa and had remarried to Jennie Groves. He lived in Valley Junction for several years at 517 Maple Street. He died in 1934 at the age of 76. Gladys Blighton Freshour remembers her grandparents by saying: "They traveled by covered wagon to Des Moines, Iowa (from Lincoln, Nebraska). They took their milk cows with them. I do not remember much about Grandma Blighton. They called her Dora and she had asthma. I remember her staying with us for awhile, and she bought each of us older girls a doll.

Notes for OLIVER ALBERT FRANKLIN:
(SOURCE) The Descendants of Peter Franklin

Oliver Franklin, son of Peter Franklin and Rachel Colier, was born in 1863 in Thorntown, Indiana. According to the 1880 census, he was attending school in Union County, Iowa at the age of 17, while living at home. Oliver moved to Madison County, Iowa about 1881-2.
According to a family record, Oliver married Lydia Blighton in 1881. This would mean that Oliver was 18 years old and Lydia was only 15 when they married. The marriage record in Madison County appears to be 1884, and says that Lydia was 18 and Oliver was 21 years old. But this year is confusing, when looking at other records. They were married at the home of Lydias' father. Lydia is the sister of Hiram Mansel Blighton, who married Olivers' sister, Dora. This record gives Olivers' mothers name as Rachel Colin (but probably is Colier, as it's hard to read).
Oliver and Lydia lived in Madison County at least a year. They moved to Nebraska by 1883, according to the newspaper clippings of Olivers' 88th birthday. They had settled in Seward County by 1891. Oliver and Lydia had 2 children who died within a year of birth. It is not known where they were buried in Nebraska.
Lydia was member of the United Methodist Church in 1894 in Seward. She was baptized in 1895 at the age of 28. Oliver was a member of the United Brethren Church. He was a farmer in Seward County until 1925, when he moved his family to Alliance Nebraska. Oliver and Lydia had 10 children: James "Elmer", Jessie, Bessie, Ernest, Vinnie, Albert "Lee", Cora Belle, Willard, Henry "Dwane" and Clara.
Lydia died in 1942 at the age of 75. Oliver died in 1953 at the age of 90. They are both buried in the Alliance Cemetery in Alliance, Nebraska.

MISC. NOTES CONCERNING THE BLITONS, MCWETHY AND PHELPS FAMILIES:

David H. Phelps walked from Wisconsin to Worth County, Iowa. While there he bought timber claim from three Hart brothers. David walked back to Wisconsin, where he divided his claim between himself, Tilly McWithy, Hiram Blighton and two of his sons Permeno and Willard. All these families then went back to Iowa together in 1855. Thus started Phelps Grove - later Called Grove Township, Worth County, Iowa.

First marriage in Worth County was 11 July 1856 between Arthur Bolton and Felinda Blighton.
A son of David Phelps froze to death carrying a mail pouch from Osage, Iowa to Northwood the winter of 1856/57.
In 1857, Catherine Hostetter of Shell Rock in Glenville, Minnesota conducted the first school in Worth County. The loft of Tilly McWethys' log cabin served as the school.
Eliza Evaline Malcolm Blighton "known as Grandma Blighton" by the community, acted as doctor and nurse. A covered wagon had camped out because of a sick child. Eliza cared for the child, but could not save it, and he became the first burial in the State Line Cemetery, then known as Phelps Grove Cemetery.
The Will School District 104 was taught by Miss Eliza B. Leonard, the protege of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Beighley. Also in 1896, A.M. Blightons' sister Emmie taught in District 101. His other sister, Jemima taught District 65 in Freeman Township in 1870.
It is not known exactly when the Blighton clan simplified the spelling from Blighton to Bliton. Uncle Hiram said that he and Aunt Minnie switched about 1910. Aunt Mary Louisa Blighton Wardall refused to change over.
I have also included several obituaries, some articles written about the family, which I think give a lot of insight into the people involved.

Notes for OLIVER RAYMOND BLIGHTON:
(From the pages of The Franklin Book)

Oliver Raymond Blighton, son of Dora Franklin and Hiram Blighton, was born 1888 in a sod hut near Lincoln, Nebraska. His birth name was Michael Oliver, but he always went by the name Oliver. He later took the name Raymond when baptized in the Catholic church. He married Barbara Gappa and they had 8 children: Mildred, Lucille, Gladys, Eugene, Francis, Florence, Marian and Richard.
Gladys (Blighton) Freshour, daughter of Dora Franklin and Hiram Blighton, shares some memories:

"Oliver and Barbara lived on a farm near Cylinder, Iowa. We went to Cylinder School. It was a sad day when our baby brother , Francis died with diphtheria. After that we moved to a farm nine miles from Emmetsburg, Iowa. That is where Florence was born. We lived there when the big tornado hit. We were lucky, but our neighbors lost everything. It tore the house right in half. A kitchen chair held some of the house off of Kitty's mother and it blew Kitty out into the pasture. Oliver sold that farm and we moved to Grandmeadow near Uncle Chuck. Oliver worked a farm for another man and drove stock truck. The older girls did most of the farm work while Dad drove the truck. Later we moved to Hollandale, Minnesota. We worked in the onion and potato fields. We were living in Hollandale when the depression hit. Mildred and Lucille went to Debuque, Iowa to work and I stayed behind to help Dad in the fields. Dad always said the Lord will provide, He may be a little slow at times. Oliver and Barbara moved to Alberta Lea. Dad became very ill and we almost lost him. His appendicitis burst and he developed gangrene. Eugene was only sixteen; he had to go to work for PWA until Dad was well and could go back to work. In World War II, Oliver, Eugene and Earl Wooton worked for the defense projects in Hutchinson, Kansas and Oklahoma. Oliver and Barbara loved to dance. At the time they had a lot of house dances. Oliver had a goods voice . Every Christmas Eve we sat around the Christmas Tree and sang Christmas Carols, then go to midnight mass. He also liked to sing other songs at different times and dance to them for us kids. In the summer of 1922 Uncle Glen and Aunt Marie came to visit Aunt Bertha. I remember going to all the Lakes up North. Clarence Arbogast (We called him "Cap") was there, and later he came to Lodi (California) to visit in the 50's and the younger kids remember her too. Oliver died in 1965 at the age of 77. Barbara died in 1947 at the age of 57".

THINGS I REMEMBER ABOUT DAD. BY FLORENCE BLIGHTON LEWIS

There were times when he would have to hitch hike into town, which was eight miles away, to get groceries and kerosene for the lamps because the truck wouldn't start. This one time he got a ride with this guy and he was driving too fast and he rolled the car and the only thing that kept them from getting hurt was the ditches were full of snow and I guess the car landed on it's wheels and Dad got out and told the guy he would walk the rest of the way. Us kids would sit in the window Watching for him to come across the field of snow. He would have a gunny sack with as many groceries as he could carry and the littler can of kerosene in the other hand. Didn't seem like much but Mom always knew how to cook and stretch the food.
Dad and Uncle Chuck tilled the fields for a while. That was to drain the water from them if we got too much rain. Mostly they sold vegetables like cabbage, potatoes, onions and etc. They had some customers every year and sold to some colleges too. So every summer us kids would work in the fields. Uncle Chuck and Aunt Annie would come up and bring there kids, Curly, Stub, Bette and Dort. But Dort was only about two then. We would have to sleep cross ways in the beds so we would have enough room for everyone to sleep. We would get to go to the free show one night a week. They were outside. Gene had bought his first car 1927 Model T. They didn't go very fast but you got where you wanted to go. So along with the hard work and weeding onions and picking up potatoes was hard, we had some good times too.
I remember that we would get to go to Uncle Chuck's sometimes to Iowa. Dad would pick us up at school and we would have blankets and pillows in the car until there was hardly any room to sit. That was a long trip in those days because the cars would only go about forty miles an hour. We would always have a lot of fun. Aunt Annie would line up all the chairs and play train with us. O course Uncle Chuck and Dad would go up to the bar and visit with their friends. This one time Annie told Chuck to bring a roast home for Sunday dinner and when they came home that night, I can still hear , Annie asked if he brought the roast and he said yeh ( He said the dog got the meat but here's the bone). They had left the roast in the truck while they were in the bar and a dog got in there and ate the meat and had left the bone. At that time there were only Gene, Mary Rich and me at home. The three older girls were married.
Times were hard but we always seemed to have something to eat. Always had a big garden in the summer and canned out of it for the winter. We all were healthy.

Notes for BARBARA MARGARET GAPPA:

THINGS I REMEMBER ABOUT MY MOTHER. BY FLORENCE BLIGHTON LEWIS

She sewed most of our clothes on a treadle sewing machine. She would take coats that someone had gave us and make them over so they would fit us. She made all our clothes, sometimes even our underclothes. I picked up potatoes and bought my first coat when I was seventeen. I would babysit with five kids on this farm and would get paid a quarter and sometimes fifty cents and I would save it up until I got a dollar and that would be enough to buy material to make me a dress. Mom never used a pattern. I would draw her a picture of a dress I saw in the store and she would make it. She even made me beautiful pleated skirts.
She would go and help out women when they had babies. You had to have help because you had to stay in bed for ten days. She always had a kit ready in case she would have to deliver one and she showed us kids how to do it. Guess it came in handy when I was born because my Dad delivered me. Mom had us all at home and she never was in a hospital.
She always made bread and taught me how to do it when I was eleven. She was sick in bed and couldn't do it and we had to make it every other day. She also raised a big garden every summer and we ate out of it and canned for the winter. The worst time was wash day and that was an all day job because we had to heat the water on the range stove after carrying it in from the well and scrub all the clothes on the wash board. Dish towels had to be boiled and in the summer it really got hot in the kitchen. Later Dad finally got a kerosene stove because there was no electricity in the country. The years passes and I went to work at Hormels and was guaranteed twenty four dollars a week. Sometimes we made thirty because we worked on production. I was able to buy Mom her first washing machine and we had electricity by then so we even got an electric iron.
When she finally got time to sit down she done a lot of crocheting and embroidery. She was well liked by everyone. She had fifteen brothers and sisters and one adopted brother. She said there was enough of them to have their own parties. She said there would always be a barn dance at some place every Saturday night. They grew up on a farm. She passed away in Oroville, California. Dale was just four months old and I was twenty two. Richard was only fifteen. Mil and Dad too her by train back to Iowa to be buried. That was what she wanted. I have good memories of my Mom, because she was always there for us.

Notes for FLORENCE MARGARET BLIGHTON:

HOW WE ALL ENDED UP IN CALIFORNIA. BY FLORENCE BLIGHTON LEWIS

Dad, Art, Jiggs and Gene left Austin Minnesota in November, 1944 to come to California to work on defense. They drove Art's gravel truck and towed Gene's because we were still in the middle of World War II and gas was rationed and they didn't give you much. Don't know how much they allowed for trucks but I know we were allowed three gallons a week for the car. Anyway they ended up in Blyth, California. They hauled rock to build battleships or something. Had to back up this long ramp to a box car and then dump it into the car. One night Dad was driving Gene's truck on the night shift and he went up the ramp to fast and couldn't get stopped in time and part of the truck went into the car and he bit his pipe into (always had it in his mouth) and all he had left was the stem in his mouth and he was running around trying to find the other half. They got the truck out and it wasn't hurt and there laid Dad's other half of his pipe on the rocks in the car. I moved in with Mom and stayed with her until December and I left Austin with Jiggs and Grandma Barton. She was going to Los Angeles by train to, I went that far with her and I got a ride from there to Brawly with some relatives of hers. From there I had to take a bus to Blyth. It was night time and the border patrol were taking Mexicans off the bus and there I was all alone and was the first time that I had been farther than Iowa. Bus got into Blyth at two in the morning and I started for the hotel where Dad and them were suppose to be and I discovered there were three Mexicans behind me so I turned around and went to the hotel closes to me and got a room and locked the doors. I didn't sleep. I asked the guy in the hotel how I could find the guys with the gravel trucks and he said they all left for San Bernardino this morning and about that time I heard Art's truck going down the street, so I knew he was still there. Finally Jiggs heard that I was still in the lobby so he finally got there. We never had no Mexicans in Minnesota, I guess that is why they scared me so bad.
Mom and Rich and Mary, Glad and Dee, Lou and Lois came out in January on the train. We had three houses close toge5her all that were made of adobe blocks. They were finished which was good because we all had sold all of our furniture except like blankets, dishes and etc. We left Blyth in March. Art and Lou stayed behind because Art was hauling lettuce. It got so hot that Art had taken the windshield out of the truck and hauled ice in the cab to try and stay cool. Gene had went by bus back to Austin to marry Bette and had left his truck for us. The gas rationing had ended so wee could get gas. There was Mom, Dad, Rich, Mary, Glad, Dee and me and Jiggs. Dad done most of the driving and he wasn't the best driver around and we came through the Grapevine and it was only two lanes at that time and seem like the dual wheels on the truck were hanging over the edge most of the time. Most of us had to ride in the back of the truck and we got to Bakersfield it was hot and being in that steel bed on the truck didn't help.
I remember when we got up into the grape country and the grapes were all pruned, Dad said look at all those stumps, I don't know why they don't clear that land and grow something on that good land. We had never seen grapes growing like that. Soon find out in the fall what they were.
We ended up in Thornton, California and with the war still on there was no houses to rent so we had to move into the Government Camp. We had one room tin huts. The manager finally moved our whole family down to an area they had used for an isolation place but they didn't need that anymore. Art and Lou and Lois came up in April and soon Danny came. Mary had met him in Blyth. She was sixteen and he was seventeen. A couple of months later they ran off to Tahoe and got married. They were seventeen and eighteen the. Gene and Bette came out from Minnesota. We played a lot of poker in those days for entertainment. So we all worked in the fields that year. I was pregnant with Gary and Lou found out she was pregnant with Nancy. She couldn't believe it because Lois was15. A year later Bette got pregnant and wanted to go back to Minnesota. So Gene sold his truck and they went back there. In the meantime we had got us a Graham Paige car and Dad had got a 29 Chevy Pickup. Gene and Bette and Ronnie came back to Thornton. Mom, Dad, Gene, Bette , me and Jiggs (by this time I had Dale) decided to move to Oroville to pick olives.
The guys picked olives ands we stayed home and took care of the kids. Dale was only 2 months old. We were still having a hard time finding a place to rent but Gene and Bette and me and Jiggs found this two room place so we rented it together. I wasn't suppose to have any kids and it was alright for Bette to have Ronnie. The landlord said she would allow one kid. So I had to leave Gary with Mom (they had a two room place in Palermo) and Bette and I would bring the buggy in and take Ron out and put him back on the porch for fresh air and then we would bring the buggy in and take Ron out and put Dale in it and put him out for air. One day we wanted to go for a ride so we wrapped them both in the same blanket and the old girl caught us and made us move. So Jiggs and I and the boys moved in with Mom and Dad and Bette and Gene pitched a tent out in the yard.
Mom died there in the house. Bette ran to the store and called the doc but it was to late by the time he got there. Of course, they couldn't have done anything because it was a blood clot in the heart. Mil and Floyd had moved to California shortly before Mom died. Mil had asthma real bad and they thought she would be better here. Mil and Dad took Mom back to Emmetsburg to be buried. That's what she wanted. They had their plots back there and Francis is buried there.
Finally the war was over in August and there finally was places to rent because the people who worked in the defense plants had gone back to their states. We all moved back to Thornton after Mom died. Jiggs went to work at the Thornton Cannery and we got a cannery cabin and I went to work in the cannery because you both had to work to live there. Dee babysat for me for awhile and she was only eleven and Gary was nineteen months and Dale was seven months. Soon we got a three room cabin there. We moved back to Minnesota when the boys were four and five. Judy was born there. Moved back to California two years later and lived on Forrest St. in Lodi, California. Jiggs had a hard time finding steady work and things were rough for awhile, but my family helped us out and the Don Watson got him a job at Bills Furniture and we moved to Stockton. Dan and Gene went to work at California Junk. Danny built up the Lodi Door and Metal. When he died the boys took it over then ended up selling it. Gene and Bette moved back to Minnesota when Ronnie was about three and Gene opened up his own Junk Yard. When the twins were five they came back to California. Art kept trucking, finally had got a semi-dump truck and hauled a lot of gravel making driveways. His old truck had burned up when he was hauling hay from Galt to Thornton.
Gladys stayed on at the cannery until she met Ed and they moved to the house on Stockton Street forty-one years.
Jiggs went from Bills Furniture to Sears and worked there for a few years and from there he worked for Danny at the door place. He worked for Stockton Elevators for ten years and Claude C Woods for nine years. He had a truck wreck March 8, 1979 and never went back to work because of his asthma.
We lived on Mettler Road for eighteen years.
I want to add a little foot note that I heard my mother say: I cried because I had no shoes and then I saw a man who had no feet.
