Our Jaudon Line to Freda Francis Aikey

"The first four generations of the family spelled the name Jaudon, as appears by the references to their marriaged, but after a settlement in Bucks County Pa, the name was spelled Jodon for quite awhile, although Jaudon was gradually resumed.  Francis Jaudon, son of Pierre Jaudon, the settler, spelled his name Jodon, which form was retained by his descendents." Jaudon Family Of Pennsylvania by Edwin Jaquett

There is a book on our Jaudon line, written by Edwin Jaquett.  It had two printings, one in 1890 and a revised edition in 1920.  The 1920 edition is available on Ancestry.com, the 1890 edition is available for download from a variety of online sources.

He enlisted three times in the Continental army, serving through the entire war, and never receiving a wound. He participated in some of the most memorable events which marked the struggle for independence, and was a sharer in many of the greatest of the hardships which fell to the lot of the devoted patriot army. He accompanied Washington when the latter, on that never-to-be-forgotten Christmas night, crossed the Delaware in order to surprise the Hessians at Trenton, and he shared all the sufferings of the winter at Valley Forge.

This older section of the cemetery has no comprehensive listing of persons interred here, and many headstones have disappeared or been buried.

From The Zentmeyer Genealogy - 
"Robert Strayhorn, a Scottish emigrant from Ayrshire, who according to two published sources arrived in the United States in 1775 from Scotland, along with sons Samuel and Nathaniel.  Anecdotal sources claim Nathaniel and Samuel were born in Ireland.  We have not yet located the record of their arrival in America, nor the sons' births.  We have twice visited Edinburgh and also Ayrshire, Scotland and Belfast, Ireland, and the results of our research have been in a word, inconclusive.  There is a Robert Straehorn in the church records who was born in Ayrshire, for whom we found no death record in Scotland.   Robert was identified as a 'mason' in Ayrshire, and as a 'weaver' upon his arrival in Philadelphia.   Ayrshire and Ulster are only thirteen miles apart and there has been a history of seasonal labor migration going back many hundreds of years, albeit primarily Irish workers going to Scotland to harvest crops.  But Irish linen weaving was labor-intensive, as it was an industry which was late to mechanize, so skilled weavers were in high demand.  And we do know that there was a recession in the Irish linen industry in the mid 1770s, because of competition from inexpensive cotton from the British colonies in America, which could have prompted Robert to emigrate in 1775.  So far, we have found only a single piece of evidence in Ireland for Robert's presence there, a newspaper article from Antrim in the year 1761.  Robert's wife Margaret died alone of 'Asthma' in Ayr in 1784, and while she may have been unfit to travel, we could not fathom Robert abandoning her, until we came across This Article." http://www.zentmeyergenealogy.com/other-surnames.html

Nathaniel Strayhorn 1765-1840

I've always thought Nathaniel Strayhorn was  related to Maria Jane Strayhorn, and recently my mom's dna test connected with Nathaniel - so I'm pretty certain I'm correct, although I have not found the paper trail yet!   Zentemeyer genealogy lists her as a daughter - with a birthdate of 1814 instead of 1822, which would make her 10 years older than her husband Lewis Aikey...  And in the 1880 census, she does give an age that would make her birth year 1814.  In every census prior, her age would have made her birth year 1822...

Probably Heather's Maternal 4th great grandparents

1764 - Olympius Joudon is Born

The daughter of Francis Jodon & Mary Roberts, Olympia,  was born in 1760 and married William Walker - Wm. Walker, of Warrington Township, Bucks Co., in will dated July 14, 1789, probated Sept. 29, 1789, mentions- wife Olympia and children, John and Mary (both young), and appoints his friend John Weir, of Warrington, and brother-in-law, " Peter Judon," Executors. (Nathaniel Strayhorn was a witness on this will)

Olympia married first William Walker, and after his death, married Nathaniel Strayhorn.

1765 - Nathaniel Strayhorn was born
In Ireland or possibly Scotland. His brother Samuel states in the 1880 census that he was born in Ireland, so I think it likely Nathaniel was born in Ireland as well.

Wife of Capt. William Housel, mother of Jacob, Jr. Leah and Mary Housel. (mary's maiden name is given on daughters death certificate)

 Lewisburg, Union Co., 7 June, Capt. William HOUSEL, in his 61st year.
Capt. HOUSEL served five years in the Regular Army of the U.S., part of the time as a private and part as orderly sergeant, and as in active service on the Canada frontier during the whole of the last war with Great Britain. He was taken prisoner in Dec. 1813, together with a small detachment of Americans, and marched to Quebec - suffering much hardship on the road and treated with much brutality. He rejoined his regiment in the succeeding month of June - participated in the bloody battles of Chippewa and Bridgewater (or Lundy's Lane) - and was in Ft. Erie when its magazine exploded during an assault from a storming party of he enemy. At Lundy's Lane, his company was the first in the field, and his comrades mowed down by platoons: yet he passed through the war without receiving a serious wound, and returned to die at the home of his youth.
In 1843, he attended the Volunteer Encampment at Danville to meet his old commander, Gen. SCOTT, who recognized, and gave him a most cordial greeting.
Capt. HOUSEL was a devoted husband and father, a kind neighbor, a brave and unflinching soldier, possessed of more than an ordinary share of military spirit and enthusiasm - but modest and reserved in referring to the incidents of his own military experience, which circumstances will account for the meagerness of this sketch. As his body wasted by disease, his thoughts were turned upon the future state, and he hoped to enjoy it through the Savior's merits.
His remains were borne by the Lewisburg Infantry and the Cameron Guards, followed by a large concourse of citizens, to the Lewisburg Cemetery, where he was interred, on a Saturday afternoon last."

~Obit of Capt. William HOUSEL, "Lewisburg Chronicle", 12 June 1850, pg 2.

Annals of Buffalo Valley
June 7, Captain William Housel died in Lewisburg, aged sixty-one. He served five years in the regular army, was captured in 1813, taken to Quebec, and there was exchanged, and rejoined his regiment. He was in the engagements at Chippewa and Lundy's Lane, and was in Fort Erie when the magazine exploded. He was buried with military honors by the Lewisburg infantry and the Cameron guards.

In the 1800 Census Nathaniel  would be approximately 35 years old.  There are two men between the ages of 26 & 44 in this census - and one female (Olympia) over the age of 26, with 3 members of the household being over the age of 25.  I don't know who the other male is, he would be too old to be Nathaniel's son.  John Walker, stepson of Nathaniel, would have been 11

That leaves 6 children in this census.  4 boys, and 2 girls.
