William Sewall1

M, #5602, b. 17 January 1797, d. 7 April 1846
     William Sewall was born on 17 January 1797 in Hallowell, Kennebec County, Maine.2 He was the son of General Henry Sewall and Tabitha Sewall.1 William Sewall married Elizabeth Ward Middleton, daughter of Samuel Ward Middleton and Catherine Taliaferro Hooe, on 9 August 1821 in Washington, District of Columbia, the ceremony was conducted by Rev. McCormick, an Episcopal minister, at the Queen's Hotel. At the wedding were present Dr. Thomas Sewall's family and the Misses Mary and Emelyn Webster (also relatives), Miss Mary Webster was bridesmaid and Horatio Ward was groomsman.1,3,4 William Sewall died on 7 April 1846 in Cass County, Illinois, at the age of 493 and is buried in Chandlerville Cemetery, Chandlerville, Cass County, Illinois.5

William taught school, badly, and owned a large farm in Cass County, Illinois, which he managed very badly and was heavily in debt when he died. Eliza ran it successfully until her death.
Another account of his life is rather different, it reads: "On account of his father's prominence and services to the country, his son, father of Mrs. Goodell, obtained a lucrative position in Washington, but on his way thither he was shipwrecked on Long Island sound in extreme cold weather, and, on seeing a woman on board suffering for want of more clothes, took off his coat and gave it to her to save her life. Then, to keep from freezing and the ship was sinking, he had to work the ship pump so long that he froze his hands and was rendered unable to write and fill the office. Then after a long illness he went, at the age of twenty-one, to Virginia, where he taught school, having received a liberal education for boys in those days. It was while thus engaged he met and married his wife in Virginia, which was then a part of Maryland. His wife was a native of Nanjamoy, Maryland, and was the daughter of Samuel and Catharine (Hoe) Middleton. The Middleton's were of English ancestry, and early settlers of America. Both families were prominent in business and social affairs of the State, and many of their relatives were accomplished literary men, while others were distinguished in the law and other professions. Some of the descendants took an active and prominent part in the Confederate army. Soon after his marriage, about 1829, Mr. Sewell removed to Illinois, then a new and sparsely settled country. They settled in Jacksonville, where Mr. Sewell taught school and entered 640 acres of land in Cass county. He taught school for about two or three years, when he removed to his farm, where he continued to reside until his death. He was a very devout man and did much good in this new country. He was a active worker in Sunday-school and church matters, acting for years as superintendent of the former as long as he lived, and was instrumental in building the first church in the community, of which he was the first the Elder. He did more to build up both of these institutions in the early day than any other man. Storms and cold weather deterred him from his duty. To make sure of prompt attendance he would take his kindling wood with him, and his wife her broom, and ride three miles to the village church, then used as a schoolhouse; and while he made the fire, she would sweep and clean up the house before the people of the village had started out.
He and his worthy wife had six children, three of whom are now living. He was universally beloved and respected, and was greatly lamented when he died on his farm, in 1846, aged about forty-nine years."3
