Benjamin Franklin Hotchkin1

M, (14 May 1809 - 23 March 1873)
     Benjamin Franklin Hotchkin was born on 14 May 1809 at Sangerfield, Oneida County, NY, USA. He was the son of Eli Hodgkin and Elizabeth (Betsey) Drury. He married Jane M. Little at NY, USA, on 20 September 1833. Benjamin Franklin Hotchkin appeared on the census of 1835 at Watertown, Jefferson County, NY, USA. The census lists the family as: NY State Census, Benjamin F. Hotchkin; 5 males inc head of household, 3 females in house; 2 males age 18-45; 2 males elegible to vote; 1 female under 45; 0 females 16-45; 1 female under 16; no marriage of females during yr; 1 male birth during previous yr; no female births; no male deaths during yr; no female deaths during yr.. He was Tanner in 1854 at Watertown, Jefferson County, NY, According to our County and its People, Benjamin opened a Tannnery on Fairbanks street in 1854. He and his sons ran it for about 20 years. After that it passed into the hands of George Parker and Sons.2 He died on 23 March 1873 at Watertown, Jefferson County, NY, at age 63. Obituary in Waterville Times 3 Apr 1873. Birth and death information comes from the Ballard Undertaker book, the 1st Presbyterian Church of Watertown and calculation from cemetery records that say he was age 63-10-9 at death..3,4,5 He was buried at Brookside Cemetery, at Watertown, Jefferson County, NY, USA.

     A real estate transaction listed in Oneida Co., NY records his name as Franklin Hotchkin, Grantee from his father Eli Hotchkin, 11 October 1831, Libr 54 pg 239. He is not in the Oneida Co. 1830 census, but is next found at the 1840 census in Watertown, Jefferson Co., NY. At this census he is called Hotchins and in the 1850 census he is listed as Hachkins and still living in Watertown. Living with him are his wife Jane E., four children and his father Eli Hotchkin, born 1782 in CT. In an adjacent home, lives his brother Josiah Bacon Hotchkin. The census describes both brothers as harness makers. At the 1860 Census his mother Betsey is with his family. These census records show him to be a farmer and owning real estate and personal property, each valued at $8000. Records of the Flower Library, Watertown, NY give his birth and death as 1809-1875 and say that he is buried in Brookside Cemetery, Watertown, NY. Buried with him are his wife, Jane M. and their daughter Annie Herbert. This daughter seems unlikely, as her mother would have been 57 at birth. He appears in several Watertown Directories. At the 1840 Directory he is in business with his brother Josiah at 10 Clay St and resides at Clinton St; at the 1855 edition, he is still with his brother in business at 29 Clinton St; at the 1856-57 editions, his brother is not mentioned but he is in the saddle business at 29 Clinton St. At the 1859-60 and the 1863-64 editions, he is at 29 Clinton and later at Public Square, opposite Woodruff House.
     Alice Edwards Harris, in her family notes calls him Frank, which is also used on at least one Grant Deed. The family were members of the First Presbyterian Church of Watertown and there is a baptism record Hotchkins, B. F. and J -- Harriet Kirk Petrick, 1839; Charles, 1840; Alfred, 1842.

Benjamin Lincoln Hotchkin Dr.

M, (1 September 1852 - 15 March 1929)
     Benjamin Lincoln Hotchkin Dr. was born on 1 September 1852 at Blue Island, Cook County, IL, USA.1 He was the son of William Hotchkin and Ellan Quinn. He married Mary Lydia Windes at Winnetka, Cook County, IL, USA, on 30 June 1885. Married 15 years according to the 1900 census..2 Benjamin Lincoln Hotchkin Dr. appeared on the census of 1910 at Chicago, Cook County, IL, USA. The census lists the family as: Benjamin L. Hotchkin, 57 (1852), physiian, married once; wife Lillie, 49, married once, 3 children 3 living. Children living at nearby address.. He died on 15 March 1929 at Chicago, Cook County, IL, USA, at age 76.3 He was buried at Pleasant Hill Cemetery, at Frankfort, Will County, IL, USA.

     Benjamin's Death Certificate gives a lot of information on his family. It says that his father William was born in Spaulding, England and his mother Ellan Quinn was born in Dungallon, Ireland. William is likely the brother of John, who came to Jasper County, Iowa about 1855. Benjamin was a physician with offices at 31 North State Street, Chicago, according to the 1928 Polk Directory, and lived at 5522 North Kenmore. Irma, who was a steno, is listed in the same Directory as living at 5015 1/2 North Kenmore, and is probabily related. Benjamin's wife Lillian, two sons and a daughter are with him at the 1900 Census, but at the 1910 Census the children are living at a separate address. Lillian's sister Dora Zollman, born Nov, 1861 in Alabama is with the family in 1900. A 1892 Voting Record gives his address as 733 Kenmore, Ward 25, Precinct 16, where he has lived for 18 days, and 39 years in the County and State of IL.

Beriah Bishop Hotchkin
     Beriah Bishop Hotchkin DD Rev was born on 18 December 1805 at West Bloomfield, Ontario County, NY, USA. He was the son of James Hervey Hotchkin Rev. and Rebecca Hall. He married Elizabeth Alice Fitch at Buffalo, Erie County, NY, USA, on 4 June 1827. They were married at the home of Ezekial Fulson.. Beriah Bishop Hotchkin DD Rev lived in October 1829 at Utica, Oneida County, NY, USA. Disclosed by a church letter showing his move to a new Presbyterian Church in Utica. He appeared on the census of 1835 at Paris Twp, Oneida County, NY, USA. The census lists the family as: Hotchkin, Beriah, 4 males, 3 females, 1 male voter.. He died on 13 October 1878 at Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, PA, USA, at age 72.3 He was buried at Marple Presbyterian Church Cemetery, at Broomall, Delaware County, PA, USA.

     He was the owner, publisher and editor of the LeRoy Gazette during 1827 and part of 1828, after he and Elisha Starr purchased the newspaper in January 1827. Papers from 11 September 1828 to 6 November 1828 are missing but sometime during this period, Beriah's name disappeared from the masthead. Hotchkin and Starr also owned a Book and Stationary store in the town of LeRoy. A book called, Our Country and its People, Oneida Co., NY, gives him as the publisher of the Elucidator Organ, for the AntiMasonic Party starting 7 August 1829 in Utica, NY. He edited this publication until 1 January 1833 when he was succeeded by Samuel P. Lyman. He was also the Editor of the Republican Free Press at Herkimer in 1830 according to the Gazetteer of the State of New York. Beriah was the author of many small religious publications, including Soldiers Scrapbook and Infidelity Against Itself. Records of the 1st Presbyterian Church of Utica, NY show his membership by letter from his church in LeRoy, NY on 30 October 1829. His wife was dismissed from the Utica church on 8 May 1833 by letter to the Sauquoit Union Society, a Presbyterian Church.
     Beriah started preaching in Sauquoit during April 1833. After three years at Sauquoit, in August 1836, he accepted a call from the church at Potsdam, St. Lawrence Co., NY. He resigned from that church in the summer of 1845, when his health made it imperative that he seek a milder climate. After a rest, and travel of two months, he was installed as Pastor of the CedarvilleFairton, Cumberland Co., NJ church of the fourth Presbytery of Philadelphia. He moved to the Fairview Church of Chester Co., NJ in June of 1850 and stayed there nine years. After Chester, he moved to the Marple Church of Delaware Co., NJ in October 1859. He stayed at this church until his death on 13 October 1878.
     Beriah was run over by a wagon on the streets of Philadelphia, the injuries causing his death two weeks later. His funeral eulogy says that he completed his studies at Utica, NY under Rev. Dr. Aiken, was licensed by the Oneida Presbytery on 7 February 1833, and began his labors on 1 April 1833 at the Presbyterian Church of Sauquoit, NY. He was a life long advocate of the temperance movement and in 1826, with four or five others, formed the Temperance Society of Utica.4,5

Beriah Hotchkin Rev.1,2

M, (27 March 1752 - 29 January 1829)
     Beriah Hotchkin Rev. was born on 27 March 1752 at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, USA.3 He was the son of Noah Hodgkin and Hannah Morse. He married Thankful Dickinson at Guilford, New Haven County, CT, on 4 September 1774.4,5,6 Beriah Hotchkin Rev. was a Private, andserved in Capt Hand's Co, Col Talcott's Regt., during the Revolutionary War. He appeared on the census of 1810 at Greenville, Greene County, NY, USA. The census lists the family as: Beriah Hotchkins, 1 male under 10, 1 male 26 to 45, 1 male over 45, 1 female under 10, 1 female 26 to 45, 1 female over 45.. He died on 29 January 1829 at Prattsburgh, Steuben County, NY, USA, at age 76. He was buried at Prattsburgh Pioneer Cemetery, at Prattsburgh, Steuben County, NY, USA.7

     Beriah is the first of a line of early Hotchkin ministers. His grave in the Prattsburg Pioneer Cemetery has the following marker: "Sacred to the memory of Rev Beriah Hotchkin, late Pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Greenville, NY who departed this life January 29 1829 in the 77th year of his age and 44th year of his ministry. Distinguished in life by the virtues which adorn the Christian ministry; he died in the possession of a confident hope of a glorious resurrection through the merits of his savior, Jesus Christ." A marker was placed on his grave by the D.A.R., to his memory with this inscription: "Soldier of the American Revolution 1775- Rev Beriah Hotchkin 1752-1829."
     In 1745 Beriah and his family lived in a home, next to the J. Scoville home, on the north side of Cornwall. Beriah's home is now gone but the Compiler has visited the Scoville residence which is a great old farm home, built with wide wooden planks for flooring, with large gaps where the bare ground can be seen through the floor. The home is still occupied by members of the Scoville family.
     Mary Hoadley Griswold says that: "The Rev C. E. Stowe, in his address at the Wuarto-Millennial Celebration, related that Beriah Hodgkin was consecrated to the Lord before his birth by his mother, Hannah, in a moment of spiritual exaltation, she, who had already lost four children by death; following the example of another Hannah, wife of Elkanah an Ephrathite, who gave her son, Samuel, to the Lord and to his service in the temple."
     Beriah was brought up in the old Fourth Church, which had split off, from the First Congregational Church about 1729. At the time Beriah Hodgkin, in his impressionable years, sat under the fervent preaching of the Rev James Sproat; the church was in its most flourishing period. Beriah Hodgkin was not able to secure a college education but studied for the ministry with the Rev Amzi Lewis in Goshen, NY and in 1794 he was awarded an Honorary MA Degree from Yale University.
     E. C. Starr, History of Cornwall, has a resume of Beriah's life and he says: "Beriah Hotchkin or Hotchkiss, as the name is called in his native place, was born in Guilford, 27 March 1752 (OS), the son of a mechanic, whose five children were all attacked by "black canker" in one day; of these four soon died. A few months later at a sacramental service the mother, a woman of deep piety, consecrated her unborn child to God in prayer, and seventy years later, he could not remember that he had ever spent a prayer less day. In Guilford, he had a superior teacher in the public school; and his mother gave him a book by President Edwards, which determined his theological views. He had read the Bible through in course before he was seven, and in his youth aspired to be a minister of the gospel, but an advanced education was beyond the family means; and he was taught the shoemaker's trade, which in those days commonly included tanning. At this trade he continued until past thirty, when he had a wife and three children, and had moved to Cornwall, CT. At Cornwall he united with the newly formed Second Church and was elected a Deacon, 5 October 1782. Clergymen urged him to study for the ministry in view of the scarcity of men in it, and he was finally persuaded to do so although lacking in education. On a visit to Guilford he was asked to preach in the Fourth Church, in which he had been baptized, and was then called to its pastorate, and ordained, 16 August 1785; remaining until 1789.8 Meantime some of his parishioners had moved to Greenville, NY. In 1789 he visited them, was invited to be their pastor and moved thither in September 1790. His services included five towns, but he still had to toil with his hands to support his family. In 1824, after repeated request to be released, because of his age, he was dismissed at the age of 72 and moved to Western New York where two sons resided. In August 1828, he conducted his last service and died 28 January 1829." E.C. Starr continued to say, "Beriah was an ardent Calvinist, honest, sensible, fair-minded, greatly trusted, a generally successful peacemaker; and that one of his wonted prayers was that he might not outlive his usefulness."
     Mary Hoadly Griswold, Yester-Years in Guilford, has a slightly different story. "In August 1784, the Rev Beriah Hodgkin was hired for six months to preach in the Fourth Church. He remained as pastor until 1789. He sold his home on Fair Street To Benjamin Frisbie, 17 September 1792, reserving his mother's dower right to her, and in 1793 was installed as pastor in Greenville, NY; where some of his people had already moved. At this time, there was no other Congregation minister between the Hudson River and Oneida County. He ministered in Greenville until about 1825 when he moved to Prattsburg, Steuben Co., NY where his son James H. Hotchkin was preaching and he died in Prattsburg and is buried there in the Pioneer Cemetery."
     Rev. Beriah was involved in the formation of the Bible Society of Greene County, organized at a meeting in Cairo, NY, on 8 August 1815. He was the groups first President.
     The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol.86 describes the original name as Hodgkin, then modified by Noah to Hochkin and then further modified by Beriah to Hotchkin. Most Cornwall, CT documents give Hochkin. Beriah was also described in Starr. Beriah was the last of the family to use the name Hochkin. At the 1810 census of Greenville they must have one of their children's families living with them because of the head count.
     The files of the Presbyterian Historical Society, Philadelphia, contain 7 letters written between July 23 1810 and January 29 1823 by Beriah to his son James Hervey. The subject matter is generally of a religious nature, regarding their two churches and the level of religious activity. Another undated letter is to his grandsons Beriah Bishop and James Hervey Jr. commenting on not seeing their names among those joining their father’s church at a recent youth revival. A number of these letters are attached as exhibits.9

Betty Jane Hotchkin Clodfelter
     The Clodfelter genealogy calls her Betty Jean.

Betty Jean Clodfelter passed away Friday, November 13, 2009, at St. Joseph Village in Manhattan. She was 83.

She was born May 4, 1926, in Arkansas City, Kansas, the daughter of Macleod and Susie Hotchkin, and had lived her entire life in Kansas; in Winfield, where she attended high school, Plainville and Manhattan. She married Lutie D. Clodfelter, of Winfield, KS, on July 20, 1945. They were married nearly 42 years, until his death on May 5, 1987.

She was also preceded in death by a sister, Maxine Braden, and a brother, Donald Hotchkin. She is survived by sisters, Eunice Tupin of Phoenix, AZ, and Bobbie Riegle of Winfield, KS. Also surviving are her son, Micheal Clodfelter, and his wife Rena, of Lawrence, and her daughter, Linda Schmidt, and her husband Patrick, of Alta Vista, KS. Grandchildren include Tracy Schmidt, and his wife, Hillary, of Manhattan; Todd Schmidt, and his wife Michelle, of Independence, MO; and USAF SSgt. Thomas Clodfelter, stationed at Missawa, Japan. She is also survived by five great-grandchildren: William, Kyler, Kiefer, Katie and Josh.

She worked in various department stores in Winfield and Plainville for many years, but was primarily a homemaker and loving wife, mother and grandmother to her family.

Her favorite pastime was her daily walks. She could outpace and exhaust people half her age, and even when age and infirmity required the use of a walker she could still trot down the sidewalk at a steady clip. All those who knew her and loved her will retain an image of that lean lady in motion.
