4   James Jacobus Quick

 

1. Biographical notes:

 

Born 5 January 1753 (probably) near Milford, Pike County, Pennsylvania (in the Minisink region of eastern Pennsylvania).  Baptized 28 January 1753 at MacHackemeck (later Port Jervis), Orange County, New York.  Died 27 June 1847, age 94, at home on his farm at Quick's Bend, Wilmot Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania; interred there in the Quick Cemetery.  Served with the Northampton Rangers against the Tories and Indians during the Revolutionary War.

 

James moved from Milford to Tunkhannock, where he remained a short time.  Probably about 1790/91 James and his family moved to a bend in the Susquehanna River in Wilmot Township that was known at the time as the “Painter Farm,” because Philip Painter/Paynter had settled there before the Revolutionary War.  Henceforth it was known as Quick’s Bend because James and his family were the first really permanent settlers there.  His daughter, Hannah was born there in 1792.  Tradition says James purchased the Quick’s Bend tract of land from the Indians for 4 barrels of eels.  He lived there 3 or 4 years in a little log house on the north side of the small brook that runs through the farm – near the River on the point of the ridge.  He then built a hewn log house on the south side of the creek nearly opposite the old one.

 

Of interest, as early as 1792 Christopher Schoonover, more commonly known by his Dutch name, “Stoffle,” came from the Delaware River region of Pennsylvania to Wilmot Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania, settling near the Quicks.  He cleared a few acres of flat land beside the Susquehanna River, the upland being covered with timber.  His house was on the bank of the River, below the Wilsons.  It was constructed of logs covered with bark or spalts.  Later he moved up the River into the Township of Litchfield, whereupon Cornelius Quick bought his property.  Cornelius subsequently sold the property to James Anderson, who, in turn, sold to the Wilsons.

 

2. Wife: Johanna Hannah Pelton

 

Born 6 May 1756 (per Bible records) at Groton, New London County, Connecticut, daughter of Paul and Mary (Avery) Pelton.  Died 26 December 1851 in Wilmot Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania (head stone reads: age 75 yrs, 7 months, 20 days, which would make her birth 6 May 1749).  Married James Jacobus Quick 31 August 1775 at Milford, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Notes:

 

1. Of interest: Emma Van Noy Biles (see Alexander Patterson Biles page) told Clara Delphine (Irvine) Coles in a 29 August 1928 letter that Ida Quick had wanted to marry John Peet, but her parents opposed the union.  John subsequently moved to Spokane, Washington, where he was employed as a clerk in Lafferty’s Store.  In (presumably) Aug 1928 John Peet was killed in an auto accident in Spokane, but was interred in the Camptown, Bradford County, Pennsylvania Cemetery.  He reportedly left an estate worth approximately $100,000.

 

2. From Marian Elizabeth Biles:

 

a. “It was an old Dutch custom to give each child a Christian name.  Its father’s name for a middle name and often ignoring the family surname, but using the name of town the father came from.  Thus, Dirck Theunisyen Quick would be Dirck the son of Theunis from Naorden (Van Naorden), or Dirck Theunisyen Van Naorden.

 

“Thomas Thomasyen Quick de Matyelaer Van Naorden (or Thomas Quick the mason from Naorden) was in America by 25 November 1640, which is the date of his daughter’s baptism at the old Dutch Church.  Hellegonde was her name.  Thomas took many “high flyers” in early New Amsterdam real estate, hence many records.”
