ADAM WELLIVER, John WELLIVER and Christopher WELLIVER, cousins of the above named Daniel, also from Sussex county, NJ, settled in the township about 1780. A large part of Jerseytown is built upon Adam's purchase, which stretched off to the north west. Adam left two sons and two daughters. John's farm lay to the southwest of Jerseytown. There was a family by the name of WHITMOYER living on it at the time of the Wyoming massacre in 1778. When other settlers left they concluded to stay, and in the next spring, at the season of making maple syrup two of the daughters went to the camp and while they were thus absent, the Indians came and killed all the rest of the family and scalped them. It is disputed whether there were three or five thus butchered. They were buried on the old road from Jerseytown to Washingtonville on the left hand side of the road, about half a mile from town, near where Capt William ALLEN now lives. John had a family of four sons and one daughter. Phineas, well remembered in the neighborhood was the youngest. The old farm is now occupied by Samuel JOHNSON. Christopher's land lay south of Jerseytown. A large part of it has been sold off in lots, and are now owned or occupied by William KISNER, John STOUT, Samuel JOHNSON and others. He raised fours sons and three daughters. Russel, who is quite well remembered, was the youngest son. He kept a store in Rohrsburg for a long time and now resides in the west.

"CHARLES WELLIVER of Bloomsburg, at present serving as one of the board of commisioners of Columbia Co., belongs to a family which has been established for about a century. He was born in Montour Twp., Columbia Co. April 11, 1858, son of Evan Welliver, and is a grandson of Samuel Welliver, who founded the family in this section. Samuel Welliver was born in New Jersey and came to Columbia Co. at an early date. Settling at Mordansville he lived and died there. His widow, whose maiden name was Martha Jones, married for her second husband, Samuel Wolf. By her marriage to Mr. Welliver she had the following children: John; Evan; Eli; Daniel; Mary, Mrs. Kilguss; Rebecca; Ellen, Mrs. John German; Lavina, Mrs. High Alberton [sic, Battle calls him Hiram Albertson.]; Margaret, Mrs. Theodore Smith. Evan Welliver was born Feb. 15, 1825, in the western part of Columbia Co., was a shoemaker and was also engaged in teaming. On April 26, 1849, he married Mary D. Guild, who was born Feb. 28, 1831, in Hemlock township, and died April 22, 1883, surviving her husband, who had passed away March 12, 1876; his death occurred in Montour township, Columbia county. They were burIed at Bloomsburg. Mr. and Mrs. Evan Welliver were the parents of children as follows: William B. G., John E., Mary E. (Mrs. Jonathan Pursel), Charles E., Sarah M. (Mrs. C. P. Curtin), Alice R. (Mrs. William Christian), Katie M., Evan D. and Elmer Wood. Charles E. Welliver attended public school in Montour township, and learned telegraphy at Rupert, Columbia county, following that business for a short time. Then he engaged in the carpentry and building business at Bloomsburg, at which he was engaged for a period of twenty years. In 1911 he was elected to the office of county commissioner on the Democratic ticket, receiving a highly complimentary vote-substantial testimony of his wide acqunaintance and popularity. He now devotes all his time to the duties of his responsible position, which calls for business ability and efficiency of the highest order.
Mr. Welliver married on June 25, 1884, Clara E. Rabb, daughter of William and Abigail Rabb, of Bloomsburg, and they have had four children namely: Pauline M., who died in infancy; William E.; Walter E.; and Charlotte B.
Mr. Welliver is a member of the Presbyterian church and socially belongs to the P. O. S. of A. at Danville, Pa and to the Untied Americans and Knights of Malta at Bloomsburg." (History of Columbia and Montour Counties - published by J.H. Beers, 1915 vol 1.p.539)
