Milledge Woodworth Burns1

M, ID# 2794, (11 May 1864 - )
Father:Silas Woodworth I (1 May 1843 - 25 Jan 1868)
Mother:Bridget Fleming (22 Sep 1839 - )
     Milledge Woodworth Burns was born on 11 May 1864 at Lunenburg Co, Nova Scotia, Canada. He was the son of Silas Woodworth I and Bridget Fleming. Milledge Woodworth Burns married Susannah "Susan" Woodworth, daughter of John Woodworth and Anna Tilbert, c 1886.
      Milledge Woodworth's adoption doubtless left his birth year uncertain. Milledge reported in 1911 he was born in May 1865 but his brother Titus' records show Titus was born in Nov 1865 according to his grandparents' census records and all subsequent records during Titus' life. In the 1871 census the three brothers living in three separate households were ages 6 for Milledge, 5 for Titus and 4 for Silas. However, it is more likely that Milledge was born in 1863 or 1864.

Milledge was adopted by the William Burns family and took that surname as his own. In 1871 he was enumerated as Melburn Burns living with William Burns age 51 and his presumed wife Sarah age 56 and son Avert age 18 in Dalhousie, Annapolis, Nova Scotia. Everyone in the household was noted as Weslyan Methodist and of Irish origins.

Dalhousie where the Burns lived is 40 miles from New Germany where Milledge was born, on the opposite coast of Nova Scotia. What connected the Burns family to the Woodworths is unknown, but the Burns lived 16 homes away from a Thomas MacNayr, age 54, in 1871, and Milledge's grandmother was Mary MacNayr who was 63 that year. By 1881 he was enumerated as Millage Burns, age 16, still living in the same location but the Burns were now noted as Baptists of Irish origin.

By 1891 Milledge was married and residing with his family in Springfield, Annapolis, Nova Scotia. His adopted father William resided with the family. His religion was noted as Church of England. Milledge's wife's brother Enos Woodworth lived two homes away and three MacNayr families were nearby.

In 1901 he was enumerated as Mileage Burns, a Baptist of English origins -- which his wife had listed for herself on the prior census -- living in Nictau, Annapolis, Nova Scotia. In 1911 Milledge was residing in Nictaux Falls, Annapolis and was still listed as being of English origins. In 1921 he was enumerated at Millage Burns living in Belleisle, Annapolis, Nova Scotia and working as a railroad man.

Anna Maria Lord1,2

Charts:Richard Carl Murphy lineage
      Anna Maria Lord's birth place is unclear. Anna Maria's fourth great grandson David Feindel believes she was possibly born in Worcester, Massachusetts about 1749 but record searches there did not provide any leads.

There were no Lord families on the lists of Luenburg County setters from 1749 to 1756, although there were similar names such as Lloyd in 1752 and Loht in 1756, so either the Lord family was already in Lunenburg before the new settlers were brought in or they joined the community through another means.

However, there were a number of Lord families living in Lunenburg Co, Nova Scotia in the 1750s. Philip Jacob Lord was born to Issac and Maria Catherine Lord and Nicolas Lord was born to Isaac and Catherine Lord and the boys were christened in 1754 and 1755 respectively. An Isaac Lord married Anna Maria Ramichen on 28 Mar 1758 at St. John's Anglican Church in Lunenburg. Thus Anna Maria Lord may have been part of one of these early Lunenburg families.

Georg Jacob Feinthel1,2,3,4,5,6

Father:Heinrich Jacob Feinthel (a 1680 - )
Mother:Anna Elise Schmitt (a 1685 - )
Charts:Richard Carl Murphy lineage
     Georg Jacob Feinthel was born c 1710 at Palatinate-Zweibrücken, Germany. He was the son of Heinrich Jacob Feinthel and Anna Elise Schmitt. Georg Jacob Feinthel married Juliana Elisabetha Frankin, daughter of Andreas Frank, on 20 Jul 1745 at Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. Georg Jacob Feinthel immigrated on 6 Sep 1752 to Halifax, Halifax Co, Nova Scotia, Canada. He died a Jun 1755 at Lunenburg Co, Nova Scotia, Canada.
      Georg Jacob Feinthel was reportedly born in Zweibrucken, Germany and later lived forty miles west of there in Frankweiler. There are two towns named Frankweiler in Germany, and George Jabob's Frankweiler was determined by the string of wine district towns transcribed on his wife's birth certificate which aligned with the Suedliche Weinstrasse district. Georg Jacob's birth certificate has not yet been found.

Numerous Feinthels in Frankweiler church records are incorrectly transcribed online in 2019 as Frinthel because the transcriber could not accurately read Sütterlinschrift -- pre-20th century German handwriting. Dr. Ken Paulsen and his late colleague Dr. Terry Punch, also an expert in the history of Lunenburg families, did extensive research in the original Frankweiler church records which confirmed this and the names, dates and relationships in the Feinthel family.

Dr. Paulsen noted the original Frankweiler church records are clear that on 20 Jul 1745 Georg Jacob Feinthel, son of Henrich Jacob Feinthel of this place (meaning Frankweiler), married Juliana Elisabetha Frankin, legitimate daughter of Andreas Frank. The marriage record does not state from where she and her father came. Both Dr Paulsen and Dr. Punch came to the same conclusion regarding the marriage record of Georg Jacob Feinthel.

Although there was a Juliana Elisabetha Anlag born in Frankweiler, daughter of Johannes Anlag and Maria Margaretha Meyshci, who is sometimes noted as the wife of Georg Jacob Feinthel, there was no record of that Juliana Elisabetha marrying a Feinthel.

In 1749 Bristish handbills advertised throughout central Europe encouraged people to emigrate to Nova Scotia to populate the newly won territory. The handbills required becoming British subjects and paying their own passage from Europe. In return emigrants were promised 50 acres of land to each family head free from rents and taxes for a decade with capped taxes thereafter, with an additional 10 acres for each current and future family member under the same terms. Additionally the advertisement included food maintenance for the family for five years, farm tools, household wares, arms and ammunition, and access to services of a doctor, minister, schoolmaster and soldiers. The handbills also lauded the bounty of the province. To participate individuals were required to get a license from their government and apply in Frankfurt, Germany.

Between 1750 and 1752 approximately 2,400 individuals from Germany, Switzerland and the principality of Montbeliard settled in Nova Scotia. These immigrants came to be known as the Foreign Protestants and shortly after their arrival in Halifax, Nova Scotia many settled in nearby Lunenburg. During their brief stay in Halifax under British protection, many of these early settlers, predominantly farmers and tradespeople, worked on the military fortifications in order to pay for the cost of their passage.

George Jacob, listed as George Jacob Feindell, a farmer age 42 from Deuxponts, sailed from Rotterdam, Germany on 5 Jun 1752 with his wife and children. Deux-Ponts was the French name for Zweibrucken, thus he was noted as being from his reported birth town when he immigrated. Although his family members were born as Feinthels, their names were changed to Feindel at immigration. The Feindels arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia 93 days later on the Gale, which was a snow rig ship, mastered by Thomas Casson. A snow was a fast-sailing, square-rigged vessel with two masts, complemented by a trysail-mast stepped immediately behind the main mast.

The family wintered in Halifax and appeared on the 19 Feb - 15 Apr 1753 Halifax Vituallizing List as: George "Philip," Elizabeth, George Michael, Apolonia, Maria Barbara. The annual Victual List established who the government provided flour, meat, porridge and mollasses rations.

The next step was to move to Merliguesh on the South Shore where the immigrants were granted land. The distance was about 100 kilometers -- a good day's sail under ideal conditions. The transports were loaded on 29 May but bad weather delayed departure until 7 Jun and the settlers arrived on 8 Jun 1753.

After arrival in Lunenburg, George Jacob was granted a small 14 by 18 meter lot in Sebastian Zuberbuhler's Division on Lincoln Street in Lunenburg as shown on the 1754 Division Returns, plus a 20 by 60 meter garden lot labeled as G-12 on the edge of town. To work toward meeting the promised larger acreage, surveyors laid out 30 acre lots and thus George Jacob was granted 30 acres at B-15, First Peninsula in 1753. In 1754 George Jacob received a cow and one sheep which he had to share with another man.

By 1755 the family was living at First Peninsula in Nova Scotia when George Jacob was enumerated with his wife Elizabeth and children George and Maria Barbara on the Jun 1755 Victual List for Lunenburg County. Daughter Apolonia had disappeared from the list by this time. By 1756 the list only included Elizabeth Fiendell and her children George Michael, Maria Barbara and Conrad, and in 1757 only the three children were listed as Michael, Barbara and Conrad Feindel while their mother was listed with her second husband Frederic Emoneau.

An unsourced account stated Georg Jacob died 17 Aug 1755, and he was not included on the undated 1756 victualizing list which was usually prepared in the spring.

Juliana Elisabetha Frankin1,2,3,4,5,6

F, ID# 2815, (1 Jul 1728 - 19 Mar 1791)
Father:Andreas Frank (a 1700 - )
Charts:Richard Carl Murphy lineage
     Juliana Elisabetha Frankin was born on 1 Jul 1728 at Frankweiler, Suedliche Weinstrasse, Palatinate-Zweibrücken, Germany. She was the daughter of Andreas Frank. Juliana Elisabetha Frankin was christened on 7 Jul 1728 at Frankweiler, Suedliche Weinstrasse, Palatinate-Zweibrücken. She married Georg Jacob Feinthel, son of Heinrich Jacob Feinthel and Anna Elise Schmitt, on 20 Jul 1745 at Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. Juliana Elisabetha Frankin married George Frederic-Melchoir Emoneau on 3 Feb 1756 at Lunenburg, Lunenburg Co, Nova Scotia, Canada. Juliana Elisabetha Frankin died on 19 Mar 1791 at First Peninsula, Lunenburg Co, Nova Scotia, Canada, at age 62.
      Juliana Elisabetha Feindel's young son George Conrad Feindel was christened in Jul 1755 and survived childhood, so it was impossible Elisabetha had another child nine months later, immediately after her remarriage to Frederic Emoneau. Instead, the newly married couple apparently had her baby George Conrad Feindel rechristened as Jean George Emoneau in Mar 1756.

Until 1791 when Elisabetha, her husband Frederic, and their granddaughter Catherine were murdered by Frederic’s godson George Frederick Bouteillier and his brother John, there had been no murdeers at Lunenburg since the Mi’kmaq Indian raids in the 1750s. In the dead of an icy winter the Bouteillier brothers invited themselves to dinner and then to spend the night at the Emoneau home on 19 Mar 1791. When their host went to the barn for hay to make beds for the guests, the brothers followed and, wearing moccasins and using a tomahawk to try to make the death appear to be the result of an Indian raid, bludgeoned Frederic Emoneau to death. Returning to the home, they similarly killed Elizabeth and Catherine, who tried to escape through a window. The brothers smashed a wooden chest where they expected to find substantial money but only got ten pounds. Taking Emouneau's body back to the house, they set the home on fire to destroy evidence of the murders. No remnants were found of Elisabeth's and Catherine's bodies, although Frederic's body was intact enough to provide autopsy findings indicating he was murdered.

The Bouteillier brothers were indicted for the murder of Frederic Emoneau. Throughout the proceedings it was implied although unstated that the defendants were also on trial for the murders of Elizabeth and Catherine Emoneau, although not charged with the latter crimes because of lack of physical evidence. At the trial circumstantial evidence presented by their Bouteillier siblings and Emoneau's neighbors was overwhelming. The jury quickly found the Bouteilliers guilty and the men were sentenced to hang just over seven weeks after the murders. The day before their 9 May 1791 execution, the Bouteilliers confessed to Rev. Richard Money that they had murdered the Emoneau family. Dr. Kenneth Paulson, a descendant of both the murdered and the perpetrators, meticuously researched and annotated the trial transcript and published in 2017 a fascinating account with his analysis entitled "Annotated Trial of George Frederick Boutelier and John Boutelier for the Murder of Frederic Emoneau...."

Juliana Elizabetha (Anlag) Feinthel had a contemporary who was also named Julianna Elisabeth Feinthel and was also married to a Georg Jacob Feinthel in the Frankweiler church records, so care needs to be taken in studying the records. The likely younger woman, was the mother, for example, of Johan Heinrich Feinthel born 11 Jul 1771 in that town.
