Fred L. and Minnie (Palmer)Shadduck, Charles G. Shadduck, Vernon
HIRAM SHADDUCK, farmer, P. O. North East, Erie County, Pennsylvania, was born in Greenfield Township, this county, January 14, 1826; son of Joseph and Betsy (Willard) Shadduck, who had eighteen children.
Those surviving are George, Henry, Esther, Nancy, Hannah, Polly, Ann, Lester and Hiram, our subject. Joseph Shadduck had been previously married to Harriet Cass, who bore him Ira, now eighty-four years, the first white male child born in the county; Betsy (deceased), David, and Matilda, who was killed on her way to church by a horse, in Corry. Joseph had in all twenty-two children and 306 grandchildren. He came to Erie County in 1783, and was one of the first settlers in Greenfield Township, took up 460 acres of Government land at $1.25 per acre, and bought 100 acres more near North East. He suffered all the hardships of a pioneer's life, first clearing away one acre on which he lived. He baked his bread (composed of flour and water only) and meat by roasting them in the fire on the end of a stick. He had to build his hog-pens high and strong to keep out bears and other wild animals. One day he found a bear eating his dinner; seizing his gun, he soon dispatched Bruin, and so supplied his larder with fresh meat. He departed this life in 1849, and his personal property brought the large sum of $16,000.
Hiram, our subject, was married at Colt's Station, this township, by Squire Mervin, and has eleven children living and one dead, viz.: Mary E., wife of E. Bower (has five children -- May, Davy, Jennie, Edney and Mark); (Edward Bauer and Mary are in Chautauqua County, New York in 1880 and 1900.

Moore (has one child, Arthur); John J., Lincoln, Fred L., Ethalina, wife of J. Lathrop (has one child, Ellen); Charles, Maud and Mertie, the youngest, who has kept the family record.
As an instance of what unselfish devotion will accomplish, we record the following: When Joseph Shadduck was lying ill, in the depth of one winter, with the snow six feet deep, his wife, Betsy, had to crawl on her hands and knees a distance of half a mile to procure potatoes sufficient to keep the family from starving. She had a large stock of cattle to attend to, and had to crawl to the creek to get them watered.
