bullet Silvester EVELEIGH was born in 1604. (3040) John Fullerton (390) says he was born in 1603. He was baptised on 16 Feb 1604 in Exeter, St. Thomas, Devon, England.

At age 51, Joseph was a juror at the infamous Salem witch trials in 1692. The jury found 31 people guilty of witchery, largely on the testimony of 150 accusers, who accused others to save themselves. Nineteen people were hung on Gallows Hill and 80 year-old Giles Cory was pressed to death over a period of two days for refusing to enter a plea. Later that year, Joseph and the other jurors signed a letter acknowledging their error and asking forgiveness from the victims of the trials and of God, stating that they were "sadly deluded and mistaken .. and distressed in our minds and do therefore humbly beg forgiveness." Here is the complete text of that letter:

Declaration of Regret:

We whose names are underwritten, being in the year 1692 called to serve as jurors in court at Salem, on trial of many who were by some suspected guilty of doing acts of witchcraft upon the bodies of sundry persons, we confess that we ourselves were not capable to understand, nor able to withstand, the mysterious delusions of the powers of darkness and Prince of the air, but were, for want of knowledge in ourselves and better information from others, prevailed with to take with such evidence against the accused, as, on further consideration and better information, we justly fear was insufficient for the touching the lives of any (Deut. xvii) whereby we fear we have been instrumental, with others, though ignorantly and unwittingly, to bring upon ourselves and this people of the Lord the guilt of innocent blood; which sin the Lord saith in Scripture he would not pardon (2 Kings xxiv.4) - that is, we suppose, in regard to his temporal judgments. We do therefore hereby signify to all in general, and to the surviving sufferers in special, our deep sense of, and sorrow for, our errors in acting on such evidence to the condemning of any person; and do hereby declare, that we justly fear that we were sadly deluded and mistaken - for which we are much disquieted and distressed in our minds, and do therefore humbly beg forgiveness, first of God, for Christ's sake, for this our error, and pray that God would impute the guilt of it to ourselves nor others, and we also pray that we may be considered candidly and aright by the living sufferers, as being then under a strong and general delusion, utterly unacquainted with, and not experienced in, matters of that nature.

We do hereby ask forgiveness of you all, whom we have justly offended, and do declare, according to our present minds, we would none of us do such things again, on such grounds, for the whole world - praying you to accept of this in way of satisfaction for our offense, and that you would bless the inheritance of the Lord, that he may be entreated for the land.

bullet Private John Moorhead EWIN was born on 14 Sep 1836 in Baltimore, Baltimore, MD. (3138)(316) (3139) Date of birth recorded calculated from death certificate. He moved before 1856 to Newburyport, Essex, MA.(3139) (3140) Why did he move to Massachusetts? It was Yankee country. In 1859, John Brown raided Harper's Ferry was and his body would soon be a old "moldering" in its grave. The southern states would soon threaten succession. This may have had an impact on John. He was a Shoemaker on 15 Jan 1857 in Newburyport, Essex, MA.(3140) He served as a 8th MA Infantry, Company A. Died while attending 30th Reunion 1892 in 1861 in Civil War (Union). (3139)(3141) John was the first Newburyport man to enlist. John EWIN joined the "Cushing Guards" which became the 8th Massachusetts Infantry (3-month tour) Company A, all volunteers (149). The 8th was mustered into service on 15 Apr and 30 Apr (150). Why two dates? According to Edgar Spear, John came from a family of southern sympathizers who disowned him as a result of his decision to join the Union.

Ironically, enlisting brought John right back to Maryland. The 8th conducted a three-month tour rebuilding the railway between Annapolis and Annapolis Junction. Upon his return, he was promoted to Second Sergeant. He was muster out on 1 Aug 1861. As a result of the work on the railway. Upon his return, he failed his physical to reenlist because he was so "strained" from his previous tour and had contracted rheumatism. For the remainder of the war, he recruited young men and found substitutes for drafted men who were needed by their families. For his efforts, John became beloved and well known throughout Newburyport. After completing his three-month tout, John was promoted to Second sergeant (149).

8th REGIMENT INFANTRY (MILITIA, 3 MONTHS): One of the first four Regiments to respond to the call after opening of hostilities. Gathered at Boston April 16, 1861. Left State for Washington April 18. Moved from Philadelphia to Annapolis, MD., via Perryville, April 20-21; then march to Washington, D.C., April 24-26, and duty there until May 15. At Relay House until July 29. Moved to Boston July 29-30, and mustered out August 1, 1861 (140). He moved in 1868 to South Newmarket, Rockingham, NH.(3139) He was ill with Rheumatism about 1880.(3139) John's rheumatism, contracted as a soldier, forced him to become bedridden for most of the last 12 years of his life (149). He moved about 1885 to Newburyport, Essex, MA.(3139) He moved back to Newburyport with his wife and two unmarried daughters (149). He died on 21 Oct 1892 in Washington, DC.(3138) (316) In 1892, John was in poor health but badly wanted to attend the GAR was reunion of his regiment in Washington DC. It had been 30 years since John had been in Washington, but going was against the advice of his doctor, who warned that the trip would kill him. He left anyway a week later. It was said that watching the parades, visiting his former comrades, and living in the home of his cousin LeBlond BURRETT, made him quit happy. On 14 Mar 1892, after taking a short walk, John EWIN became very ill. Relatives sent his wife a telegram explaining that John was close to death. Margaret arrived on 19 Mar 1892. Shortly after speaking to his wife Margaret, John Moorhead EWIN died at the home of his cousin, LeBlond BURRETT, at 1831 6th Street Northwest, Washington, DC. The primary cause of death was chronic nephritis (inflammation of the kidneys) and the immediate cause was (UREMIA?). He was buried somewhere in Baltimore with his parents and a brother who had preceded him (149, 160, 200).
