Philo was a carpenter and a joiner.

Philo must have emigrated to Kinsman, Trumbull County Ohio from Connecticut between his 1834 marriage to Sophia and 1838 when Philo Sidney Jr. was born. (It appears Philo Sidney Jr. went by Sidney)   Several of his siblings including Calvert, Selden, Edward Everett and Melissa also moved to Ohio from Connecticut.  When his father died in 1842, he went back to Connecticut and retrieved his mother and two youngest sisters to come live in Ohio.

Kinsman, Trumbull County, Ohio

Trumble County is named for Jonathan Trumbull, Sr. (12 Oct 1710 – 17 Aug 1785) was one of the few Americans who served as governor in both a pre-Revolutionary colony and a post-Revolutionary state. During the American Revolution he was one of a very few colonial governors who supported the American side.  Jonathan’s sister Mary married Joshua, the son of our ancestor Capt. Nathaniel FITCH.  Philo’s wife Sophia POLLEY was Nathaniel’s 2nd Great Granddaughter.

Trumbull County Ohio, Kinsman is in the Northeast corner

This part of Ohio is called the Connecticut Western Reserve.  Connecticut held fast to its right to the lands between the 41st and 42nd-and-2-minutes parallels that lay west of the Pennsylvania border. Within the state of Ohio, the claim was a 120-mile (190 km) mile strip between Lake Erie and a line just south of Youngstown and Akron. In 1796, Connecticut sold that land to investors, initially eight original purchasers, most of them from Suffield, Connecticut, who formed the Connecticut Land Company.

Connecticut Western Reserve

In the 1840 census,  Philo Sydney MINER Jr. (1811 – 1890) was single and between wives in Kinsman, Trumbull, Ohio.  There is no record of an infant in his household so maybe the two year old Philo Jr. had been farmed out to another family better equipped to take care of a toddler.  Philo’s census record directly follows Albert C Miner.  Both Philo and Albert are listed by themselves and 20 to 30 years old.  I had thought that Philo’s next door neighbor was his cousin Albert Miner (1809 – 1848)  (See his page for his interesting life story) who became one of the first Mormons, but no I’m not so sure.  It appears Albert and Tamma were 700 miles away in Lima, Illinois.   I haven’t figured out who else this Albert C Miner could be, but my closest guess is Albert Calvin Miner (b. 1815 or  1829) son of Calvin Miner and Keturah Nelson.

A distant cousin, Harris Miner also lived nearby with two girls and five boys.  Perhaps Harris Wesley Miner, (1808-1858) but this cousin seems to have lived in Stark County, Illinois in 1840 and was buried  26 Aug 1858 Toulon, Stark County, Illinois.  Simon A Polly and Ira Polly who might have been related to Sally Polly also lived close by.

In the 1870 census, Clement was living in Windsor, Fayette, Iowa with James Graham (b. May 1841 in NY) and Adaline A Wilbur (b. Feb 1845 in NY) I thought Adaline might be related to Clement’s brother-in-law David Colburn Wilbur, but haven’t found the connection yet. Adaline’s parents were Daniel Wilbur (b. 14 Oct 1797 Nelson, New York – d. 14 Dec 1881 Wisconsin) and Polly Buck (b. 23 Jun 1802 in Madison, New York – d. 26 Apr 1876) Adaline’s grandparents were Richard Wilbur (1770 – 1843) and Rhoda Miller (1775 – 1861).

Register of alumni: Allegheny College Meadville, Pa. – Clement Wellington Miner, A. M., D. D., District Superintendent, Methodist Episcopal Church, Du Bois, Pennsylvania.

Clement Wellington Miner, A.M., D.D., District Superintendent Methodist Episcopal Church, 11 1 Milton St., New Castle, Pennsylvania

Founded in 1815, Allegheny College in Meadville, Crawford, Pennsylvania has about 2,100 undergraduate students. Since 1833, the college has been historically affiliated with the United Methodist Church, though it is currently non-sectarian.

In 1920 Clement was a Methodist minister living at 111 Milton Street, New Castle, Lawrence, Pensylvania with wife Agnes J (64), daughter Mary E (19), son James C (32), James’ wife Virginia (32) and their son Robert H (2). By the turn of the 20th century, New Castle was one of the fastest growing cities in the country as it became the tin plate capital of the world.

Clement and Ida had the following children:

i. Clara May Miner (1883 in Pennsylvania – 1971); m. Clement Spencer (1886 Pennsylvania – Aft. 1940 census 1916 Avondale Avenue, Charlotte, North Carolina). In the 1910 census, Clement was a roofer in Warren, Pennsylvania.

ii. John Lynn Miner (26 Dec 1885 Sherman Chautaingua, New York – Aft. 1940 census Overlock Drive, Greenwich, Fairfield, CT); m. Bess Burnham (1884 Pennsylvania – 19 Aug 1973 Maryland) In 1909 John lived in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania when he applied for a passport.  In 1913 John sailed to Hamburg Germany on the President Lincoln.   In the 1920 census, John was Mount Pleasant, Westchester, New York and working as the headmaster at The Harvey School in Mount Pleasant, Westchester, New York.

The Harvey School was founded by Dr. Herbert Carter and his wife Mabel Carter in 1916 as a residential school for boys, enrolling students through the secondary grades. Dr. Carter, a New York City pediatrician, built the school at his farm in Hawthorne, New York. His intention was to provide a country environment and an educational program for his son, Herbert Swift Carter, Jr., who had some physical limitation due to scarlet fever as a child. The school was named for Sir William Harvey (1578-1657), personal physician of King Charles I, who claimed to be the first to describe the mechanics of blood circulation. Dr. Harvey’s discoveries and methods established him as one of the fathers of modern medical science.

John L. Miner was appointed as the school’s first headmaster when its doors opened in October 1916, with an enrollment of four boys. Mr. Miner served the school for ten years before leaving in 1926 to establish Greenwich Country Day School, originally known as The Harvey School of Greenwich.

In September of 1926, forty-five boys assembled in a former barn near North Maple Avenue. They were there because a pair of Greenwich mothers, Dorothy Baker and Jane McClelland, were unhappy with the local boys’ schools and decided to start their own. They enlisted Florence Rockefeller and she had offered a building, one she had planned to use as a carriage house. On the first day of school there were 45 boys. The first headmaster was John Lynn Miner and the uniform was a black sweater with orange stripes with knickers. In 1927 G.C.D.S. moved to the Warner property and the house called the Chimneys and the Chimneys is now The Middle School. It started with 45 boys and now there are more than 800 children. G.C.D.S. is now the largest independent elementary school in the United States.

Greenwich Country Day‘s history spans a period of over 80 years, starting with the boom period of the 1920s and journeying through the Great Depression, World War II, the bomb paranoia of the 1950s, the radicalized political and educational thinking of the 1960s, the turmoil and change of the 1970s, and the growth and progressive thinking of the past two decades. Country Day’s decision to admit girls in 1942 was a touchstone moment for the school that enabled it to grow as a truly forward-thinking country day school.

Today the eighty-acre campus serves over eight hundred students. From simple beginnings, the school has grown to become one that is widely recognized as a leader in the education and development of today’s young people and one that has helped to shape the lives of thousands of people.

Notable alumni include George H. W. Bush, forty-first President of the United States Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, Olympic rowers and social networking pioneers

In 1936 John L. Miner was a trustee along with Senator Prescott C. Bush. George Bush left Greenwich Country Day School in 1936, joining his older brother at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts.

George Bush: the life of a Lone Star Yankee By Herbert S. Parmet

Headmaster Miner was very exacting and a strong disciplinarian.  His office at the top of the stairs was off-limits to anyone without a prior appointment.  His aide Eve Collins, who was in charge of the lower school when the first Bush became a student, was described as very particular as she had to be in order to be working under Miner.  After [the middle school director] Grant became ill, the year Pressy Bush graduated, Miner was replaced by his assistant, an Englishman named George Meadows. [who appears to have been even more of an old fashioned disciplinarian than Miner] … The school was in effect a prep school for the prep schools the boys were destined for such as Choate, Hotchkiss and Andover…. All three [Bush] boys attended from the first through the ninth grades.
