When but a young man he left home and went to Virginia, where he sojourned untile the commencement of the Revolutionary War, in which he enlisted and remained a soldier until the war closed and the Independence of the Thirteen Colonies was established. After the close of the war he settled in Virginia. To whom he was married was not ascertained, but it is known that in the year 1807 two of his sons settled in Stark County, Ohio, to which place he followed them a few years later. He settled down near his sons and resided there until his death, which took place in 1823. This famous champion of Independence attained unto the advanced age of 81 years. He had a family of six sons, namely: John, David, Peter, Henry, Thomas and Joseph. We have trace some of the descendants of John, David, and Peter, but no record can be found of the others. "

6 "He was not only not a scholar, but he was a very average man," according to his half great-nephew, Judah Asimov (1896 - 1969), quoted in "In Memory Yet Green," the first autobiography of Isaac Asimov.
Isaac explains: "This one, you see, my father saw with his own eyes. It is easier to be a scholar if there is an insulating period of decades between the man who is the subject of the description and the man who is doing the describing."
Judah Asimov (1896 - 1969) goes on to say of his half great-uncle: "In my time, he married and had a daughter. While I was in the United States I heard that she became a physician, but I do not know anything more."

And [his uncle] Samuel has persuaded all of them to arrive to Leningrad, and all of them together began to live in room Samuel. Then David married Victoria Aaron. At them son Konstantin was born.

52 According to Judah's great-great grandson, Judah (Jack) Asimov (1896-1969):

Judah was a great scholar. The name Asimov came to his predecessors whenever last names were given to the Jewish people because he, like everyone in the family, were dealers in rye planted in the fall and kept warm under the snow all winter. The rye is known as "asimy chleb." So the the first dealer was given the name Asimy, and his sons, Asimov.

Judah lived in Petrovichi and, like all the town's people, paid taxes to the land owner. Each person had the right to sell it or transfer it, subject to a tax by the land owner.

Judah exchanged his great piece of land in the middle of town for a "third of land" at the west end of town.

With the money he received, he became a traveling Jewish preacher, walking everywhere. He had written a book advising piety and moral behavior. He gave out this book wherever he went.

62 After 42 years, couple's remains are reunited
By PETE HOLLEY, Staff Writer

Standing over the freshly turned soil of a new grave at St. James' Episcopal Church, Scott Trapnell Hilleary couldn't help but feel an overwhelming sense of relief.

Forty-two years after his stepfather, Hammond P. Dorsey, died suddenly of a heart attack, he reached his final resting place on Friday beside his late wife, Eleanor "Polly" Trapnell Hilleary Dorsey Dosh.

After years of legal struggle, Mr. Hilleary and his brother John Thornton Hilleary, both of Baltimore, successfully petitioned the Circuit Court of Jacksonville, Fla., where Mr. Dorsey was a legal resident, to authorize the removal of his remains from Baltimore National Cemetery and their re-interment in St. James' cemetery in Lothian.

"I feel peace," Mr. Hilleary said. "It's something that's been hanging for 42 years."

Mr. Dorsey was born in 1898 in Howard County, but moved to Annapolis in 1918 to attend St. John's College.

After becoming a lawyer, he operated the former Pine Crest Sanitarium in East Catonsville, but kept a home near Annapolis.

"He was a wonderful person," said Mr. Hilleary. "He could hardly walk around downtown Annapolis without people approaching him and calling his name."

Mr. Dorsey and Mrs. Dosh, a New Jersey native who divided her time between Catonsville, Epping Forest and West Virginia, met several times throughout the 1930s, but it wasn't until 1949, when they were both separated from their spouses, that their relationship blossomed.

In part because of their mutual passion for the outdoors and other common interests, Mr. Hilleary is convinced that his parents' relationship was an ideal match.

"They respected an admired each other, but I think it was mostly just chemistry," said Mr. Hilleary. "My mother used to say it was the stuff the poets wrote about."

Mr. Dorsey was fond of expressing his affection by repeating the same phrases, such as "Honey, I never knew there could be a woman in the world like you."

Mrs. Dosh's two sons looked forward to summer weekends away at their historic cottage in Epping Forest. It was here, hidden within the wooded, 2-acre property overlooking the Severn River, that the boys gained a lifelong appreciation for nature and their parents' love.

"They were very interested in conservation and planting trees on their property," remembered Orlando Ridout IV, Mrs. Dosh's long-time friend. "They loved to bring in specimen trees from their various adventures together."

In 1961 Mr. Dorsey moved to Florida so that he could establish residency and finalize his divorce, which had been repeatedly denied in Maryland the decade before. The shocking move was one of desperation, a final effort to circumvent his contested divorce and free himself from his first wife.

It was one of the first times Mr. Dorsey had ever crossed the Maryland state line.

When the couple finally married in a civil ceremony in 1963, it felt like decades of struggle and separation had ended.

"He helped raise my brother and me," said Mr. Hilleary. "We thought of him as our father. Everything would have been different if he had lived."

But on June 24, 1963, barely two months into his new marriage, Mr. Dorsey died while driving a tractor to cut wheat on his uncle's 1,000-acre cattle farm in Howard County. He was 65.

To his new wife's surprise, Mr. Dorsey's family had him buried in Baltimore National Cemetery. Mrs. Dosh went on to marry again, but she always considered her second husband the true love of her life.

"I've been married three times," she used to say recalled Mr. Hilleary. "I've had the worst of marriages, the best of marriages and the mediocrity."

So when Mrs. Dosh died in March 2004 at the age of 91, the Hilleary brothers decided to intensify their efforts to reunite their parents. By the end of their year and a half odyssey Friday, the legal and re-internment fees had reached about $12,000.

"The bottom line is clearly that they did love each other and clearly Polly wanted her late husband to be beside her," said the Rev. William H.C. Ticknor, a close friend of Mrs. Dosh who led the re-interment ceremony. Standing over both their parents' graves for the first time, Mr. Hilleary only needed one word to describe how the situation: "closure."

65 Albert “Al” Dani was born on April 7, 1905, on the Cooper Ranch on the Little Sur River. He attended eight years of school at the Cooper School on the Hunt Ranch.

Al was a cowboy first and foremost. He enjoyed ranching, cowboying and working with horses. He was good at “gentling” and “rough breaking” horses. They were also good at “breaking” him. He had two broken ankles among other injuries to prove it.

On February 4, 1935, Al married Neva V. King. After working at the Hunt Ranch, the McQuerry Ranch, farming with Vernon Holmes, and numerous other jobs, Al and Neva moved to King City where Al went to work fo the Heirs Estate of Thomas Doud Ranches. Al and Neva had moved so many times in the first five years of their marriage that Neva told Al, “If you move again, Margaret (10 mos.) and I are staying here!” Al must have believed her as he “stayed on” and acted foreman and superintendent for the “Douds” for thirty-five years. Albert Ivon “Butch” Dani was born to the couple on November 10, 1945.

Al loved to tease, tell stories and outright lies. One of the stories he told children who sucked their thumbs was sucking his thumb was the reason the end “rotted off”. (Actually, his rope “popped” over his thumb and neatly removed the end of it)! He also ”doused” Uncle tony Brazil’s nose with Ben-Gay assuring poor Uncle Tony that it would cure his stuffy nose. Al loved hot peppers. When asked if they were really hot, he usually replied, “Just a little warm.” Numerous individuals can attest that his straight face was not quite the complete truth.

Al loved “kids” and was a big tease, but he was also a giving man. A young woman with children ran into his pickup. Because she was upset, Al told her to forget it. His pickup had so many dents that it’s not clear how many times this happened. It is known that sometimes he gave to strangers and neglected “his own”.

He died on the Ides of March in 1975. Al’s children and grandchildren hope he’s not into too much mischief in heaven. God Bless.

75 Among that striking group of men who in the latter part of the
nineteenth century bore the burden of government and contributed in a
very large measure to the material, political, civic and moral development
of Santa Barbara county, Charles Fernald was a. prominent and
influential figure. For nearly forty years he was a resident of Santa
Barbara and during practically all of that period was actively and effectively
interested in the public affairs of this locality, his alert and
vigorous mentality, his fine public spirit and his sterling integrity giving
him marked prestige throughout this section of the state.

Mr. Fernald was born at Berwick, Maine, on the 27th of May, 1830;
and his death occurred at Santa Barbara on the 7th of July, 1892, in
the sixty-third year of his age. He secured his education in the district
schools of his native state, where he remained until 1849, when, at
the age of nineteen years, he joined the stream of gold-seekers who
were in that historic year crossing the plains to California. He arrived
in San Francisco June 14, 1849, and was soon engaged in editorial
work on the San Francisco Post and Alta Californian. He studied law
and was admitted to the bar. In 1853 he came to Santa Barbara and
on March 14 of that year was appointed county judge, to which position
he was later elected, and reelected, his career on the bench being
marked by an ability and fairness that stamped him as possessing a
naturally judicial mind. In May, 1882, Judge Fernald was elected
mayor of Santa Barbara, and later was appointed United States commissioner
for the southern district of California, discharging his official
duties with distinction and ability.

Judge Fernald was the owner of extensive farm lands and was the
first to experiment on a large scale in the growing of olives, to which
he planted a large tract of land and in which he met with - eminent suc
cess. In everything relating to the progress and upbuilding of his
community he took an active interest and was a leader in the promotion
of many movements of inestimable benefit thereto. He was a life
member of the Society of California Pioneers and was affiliated with
the Sons of the American Revolution. Fraternally he was a member
of the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, and also belonged to the
American Academy of Political and Social Science, of Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania.

On May 7, 1862, at North Berwick, Maine, Judge Fernald was united
in marriage to Miss Hannah Hobbs. Noted as a citizen whose career,
useful and honorable, conferred credit on his community, and whose
marked abilities and sterling qualities won for him much more than
local repute, Judge Fernald held distinctive precedence as one of the
most progressive and successful men of his day in this locality. He was
essentially a man of affairs, sound of judgment, keen in discernment,
quick in decision, and his success was the legitimate fruitage of consecutive
and well directed effort. He gave to the world the best of an
essentially virile, loyal and noble nature and his standard of integrity
and honor was inflexible. He was in the truest sense the architect of
his own fortunes and upon his entire career there rests no blemish, for
he was true to the highest ideals in business, professional, civic and
social life.

77 Anna Berman Asimov proved to be a talented actress, according to the written recollections of her husband, Judah (Jack) Asimov.

In 1917, Judah wrote, "For the first show, they selected a play by the name of ìFamily Zvi,î by [the well-known Yiddish playright] David Pinsky. ... We played as amateurs in more than 10 plays, and we were so good that people used to come from the surrounding villages and towns to see us play. Mamma [Anna Berman Asimov] even played in Jacob Gordonís play (ìCHASIE DI YETOMEî) while she was in her seventh month with a baby that we later named Isaac. And nobody could have told that she was pregnant
at that time.

[Note: Jacob Gordon ñ also spelled Gordin -- (1853-1909), was regarded as one of the greatest playwrights of the Yiddish American theater, circa 1895 in NY. His most successful play was ìThe Jewish King Lear,î about a pious immigrant father abused by his heartless American-born daughters. He also wrote ì Mirele Efrosî (1898), known as The Jewish Queen Lear, and ìGod, Man and Devilî (1900), based on the story of Faust.]

"Mamma learned her lines easily, and she did not depend on the box man who used to read in a low voice so that the players did not make mistakes. For some, it was no help at all. But Mamma did not need anybodyís help. She learned the lines and did not make any mistakes because she used to live the life of Pesenue, the pious wife of Hershele Dubrovner in ìGot, Mentsh un Teiflî [ìGod, Man and Devilî]. I am reminded now that she was the best. She never imitated anything, and when it came to laughter she was always first. She used to inspire the whole crowd."

[Note: The play ìGot, Mentch un Teiflî ìexplores whether or not a good and pious man will be corrupted by money. Satan makes a wager with God that he can tempt Hershele Dubrovneróa poor, religious Torah scribeóby handing him a lottery ticket which will win a fortune. Satan then disguises himself and becomes Hersheleís business partner, advising Hershele to open a tallis [prayer shawl] factory and hire the community men to work for a pittance. The disguised Satan also tells Hershele to divorce his barren wife of 22 years [Pesenue] and marry the young and beautiful niece that Hershele and his wife had raised. Hershele follows all of the advice he is givenóand in the process destroys his family, his friendships, and any spiritual values he once had. He learns that life holds no remedies for the damage he has caused.î And the story ends tragically.î]

Anna was born just one block away from Judah, on an opposite corner. In his written recollections, Judah also writes that Anna's mother was the second wife of Anna's father, Isaac Berman. Isaac had "some sons and a daughter, from which I knew two David and Uncle Joseph. I have heard about another son, Mordechai."

Judah also writes, Anna had "three brothers all younger than her." He refers to Anna as the "little sister" of Mordechai.

He says that her older brother, Joseph, had left Petrovichi when Ann was a baby.

The manifest of the Baltic (arriving from Liverpool) lists the family as follows: Juda, Hana Rochel, Aisik & Manis Asimy. It says they are from Petrowitschi.

Here's a bit about the ship:
BALTIC 1903
The BALTIC was a 23,876 gross ton ship built in 1903 by Harland & Wolff, Belfast for the White Star Line. Her details were - length 709.2ft x beam 75.6ft, two funnels, four masts, twin screw and a speed of 17 knots. There was accommodation for 425-1st, 450-2nd and 2,000-3rd class passengers.

In 1909 she rescued survivors of the collision between the REPUBLIC and the FLORIDA off the US coast, in which the REPUBLIC sank. On 12th Dec.1918 she commenced her first voyage after the Armistice, from Liverpool to New York and in 1927 her accommodation was altered to carry 393-cabin class, 339-tourist class and 1,150-3rd class passengers.

98 Boris' niece, Serafima Asimova, wrote to Isaac Asimov in 1979 from Leningrad. She said: "Boris was living in Petrovichi for a long time, then he came to Moscow. He was mathematician. Later his sick father -- grandfather Aaron -- came to his house....After the war, Boris lived in Leningrad. He had no family and was alone. Now he is living in Israel."

In 2006, Serafima wrote more about Boris in an email. She said: "(Like his brother Samuel), Boris too had huge propensities to mathematics. It also became then the teacher of mathematics though very much loved poetry, knew by heart Pushkin, Tyutchev, Fet. Perfectly knew Sacred Classic Jewish language so then the Hebrew referred to."

"The daddy [Samuel Asimov], mum, I, uncle Boris and the [maternal] grandfather [Samson Shmulevitch] lived in one room of a municipal apartment in the street Gogol 21, in Leningrad."

In another email, Serafima wrote: "Boris -- measured, slow, lyrical, the mathematician -- the theorist, writes verses in Hebrew. ...Boris lived with Aaron and Hanna - parents. Then, when his mum [Hanna] has died - he has left for Moscow. At Boris since the childhood the right foot was not bent - in game boys have pushed - has fallen, has broken, there was no good doctor, in Smolensk the medical assistant has rescued a leg {foot}, but she {it} has ceased to be bent. War began. ...

"Boris has left for evacuation to Tashkent. Once to me aunt Dvosja [sister of Judah, Boris, Samuel and Rachel] told, that in Moscow Boris married and he had wife and the daughter, but they tragically were gone. It has been told once, but I was more never about it heard. It was not accepted to speak never on this theme.

"[Boris' younger brother] Samuel has decided - it is necessary, that Boris Asimov has arrived to Leningrad, here to Life him it will be easier. ...Samuel has solved - I more sociable, I shall leave, and the room let remain to Boris. ...Samuel has taken all and has returned to a room to Boris. We lived all together in a small room - Uncle Boris, the daddy, mum, [maternal] grandfather Samson, I. It is 1953.

(By 1966) "Uncle Boris has remained in the room. It was very beautiful house in the center of Leningrad, but there it was difficult to live - there was no hot water...it was necessary to heat fire wood.
It is difficult for understanding. A room - in an apartment, where 3-5 more rooms. Another's people live in them. And only one room for uncle Boris.

"In 1968 to uncle Boris gave other room with hot water and heating and in 1974 he has left for Israel.
Uncle Boris is a lot of with me was engaged, he learned me to mathematics, he paid for my music education, and the piano has presented me, drove in museums and cinema. He very much loved me and I very much loved him. Boris was the religious person, he perfectly knew a Hebrew, wrote verses in a Hebrew, every day was engaged in a Torah."

Serafima writes that her son, Alexander -- who has taken the name of his grandfather, Samuel, since moving to Israel -- has inherited some traits from his Uncle Boris: "From Uncle Boris (though they saw only 2-3-times), Alexander - Samuel 1971 of a birth, has inherited love to poetry and the romantic attitude to a life."

In the late 1970s and early '80s, Boris' nephews Stanley and Isaac, and his niece Marcia, exchanged letters with him. He wrote in Yiddish, which Stanley or Marcia had translated. Stanley's secretary, Sylvia Smith, went to visit him. Sylviaibed Boris as living in impoverished circumstances, but unwilling to accept help.

He had a social worker, however, who tried to help him. In a letter to Stanley, Marcia and Isaac, social worker Colin Keye wrote that Boris had an eye operation and that that was the "straw that broke the camel's back." Boris was placed under state guardianship in an arrangement overseen by an American attorney, Arthur Rosenstein, of Hertzl St., Netanya. Boris received help from the Netanya (Israel) Social Services for the Elderly, Stamper ST. 5, Netanya, Israel.

In the last weeks of his life, he was placed in a psychogeriatric ward of this nursing home in Hadera, Israel: "Beit Noach, Shikun Weitzman," where he lived for about 6 weeks, and then died.

2008: (For the first time, Serafima sees the photos of Uncle Boris in his final years. She writes to her cousin, Nanette Asimov): "I have seen his photo and heart mine was compressed, and to eyes the tears have risen. I never saw him by such old and helpless. I knew him, as very courageous, hardworking man, which knew very much, as mathematics and the connoisseur talmud. He very well knew Russian classical poetry and itself wrote verses on ivrit. He very beautifully sang, he had warm baritone - vote, as Violoncello. I shall send his photos, I would like, that near to his surname other photo has appeared still."
