    The last Episcopal members to worship within the walls of the house were Jonathan and Mary A., Ruth, Ann, Francis, Jemima, and Melissa West, Azariah Crow and wife, and their daughter. The old building, that is nearly a century old, is a complete wreck, and vandalism will soon destroy the last vestige of it. In the churchyard attached to St. Thomas' Church the following old residents have been buried: Ann Johnson, died Feb. 2, 1819, aged eighty-two years; Edward West, died in June, 1872, eighty-three years old; James Kerr, died March 16, 1865, seventy-two years of age. John Stroud, Sr., died Feb. 6, 1820, aged fifty-one years; Elizabeth Stroud, died Feb. 6, 1855, seventy-five years old; Thomas Dowler, died April 1, 1824, eighty-five years old; Rosanna Chamberlain, died March 9, 1859, in the seventy-weventh year of her age. The yard is in poor condition, surrounded by a dilapidated stone fence. The place is full of graves, many unmarked, uncared for, and over grown.

    From Sharon Kouns: The above paragraph states that Thomas Dowler died 1 April 1824 ...Cloonan writes: I found this man's [Thomas Dowler] will in Washington Co., PA Will Book #4, p. 58, proved 12 April 1824. It named (Mrs.) Elizabeth (Johnson) as his wife. He was buried in the old cemetery (Old West) of the now vanished St. Thomas Episcopal Church. His tomb-stone says he died on 1 April 1824 ae 85. He is listed in the D. A. R. Patriot Index as born 1739. D.A.R. information says he married 2nd a Mrs. Elizabeth Johnson. His will lists a William Johnson as his step-son [Note: A william Johns(t)on - age 30 thru 39 - appears on p. 220 1830 PA, Washington Co., Pike Run Census on the line below Thomas Dowler whom I (Cloonan) call Thomas2.] A 10 Mar 1806 Washington Co deed (Book 1U p 379) transferring 14 acres to Bennet Dowler, a son, gives Thomas' then wife as Elizabeth. By deed dated 21 Feb. 1789 Thomas and his then wife Ales (Alice) sold 181 acres of the grant Woodford to Charles Whitlach. (Deed Book 1D p 379). Thoas' Revolutionary War service is documented at various locations in Pennsylvania archives text, such as 3rd series vol. 23 and 5th series vol. 6 pages 576 and 583. In addition 3rd Series, vol. 10, pages 118 and 252 show a Thomas Dowl(a)r of Antrim Twp., Cumberland County, PA on the Tax Rolls for 1779 and 1780. Vol. 26 page 552 of Third Series doucments Thomas' receipt (3 Jun 1786) of Land Warranty in Washington County, Pennsylvania. The Edward Dowlar shown on Antrim Township, Cumberland Co., PA Tax Rolls 1779, 1780, 1781, 1782 (See Vol. 10 PA Archives 3rd Series, pages 118, 252, 388, 536) could be the Edward who witnessed the deed for the Whitlatch transaction.



    Cloonan: Records of 1801 Orphans' Court, Washington Co., PA show that Moses Morton was assigned the guardianship of Mary [d/o Joseph] Mary is a minor over 14 years of age. [It is of some interest that the wife of Moses Morton was a Mary Dowler, eldest child of Thomas Dowler who settled in Fallowfield township about 1782. The familial relationship of Thomas to Joseph, if any, is unknown.]

    According to Cloonan, Thomas's first wife was Alice Ales?.... the following from History of East Pike Run, Washington Co., PA substantiates that there were Ales in the same location as this family.

    Like many others of the early settlers of the territory along the Monongahela River, Amos Ayles came from Chester County, Pa. Soon after coming here he was so unfortunate as to lose an arm. His family was quite large, and four of his sons, Stephen, Isaac, John, and another one, were engaged in boating and trading upon the river. Stephen married Mary Nixon, and they lived and died in Washington County. Isaac’s wife was Mary Coleman, and their son still owns the homestead. James Ayles married Betsey Nixon. He formerly owned the mill near Greenfield now owned by the Greggs.
