WYATT F. CHERRY, who is numbered among the early settlers of Pleasant View Township, now resides on section 30, where for many years he has carried on farming. He claims the honor of being a native of Illinois, his birth having occured near Rochester, in Sangamon County, November 9, 1821. He is the only survivor of a family of five children, with the exception of one sister, Elmira, wife of James Huckleberry, a resident farmer of Sangamon County. His parents were Benjamin and Elizabeth (Strickland) Cherry. The father was a native of Goergia, born in 1790, and upon a farm in that State was reared to manhood. Determining to seek a home and fortuen in the West, he emigrated to Illinois in 1819, and cast in his lot with the early settlers of Sangamon County, becoming one of its pioneers. There he developed a farm, on which he made his home until his death, which occured at the very advanced age of eight-seven years. His wife, who was a native of Tennessee, died at the home of our subject in Macon County when seventy-eight years of age.
In the home of his parents, W. F. Cherry spent the days of his boyhood and youth, and his early years were marked by no event of special importance. After arriving at man's estate he left the farm and purchased a tract of wild land, to the improvement of which he devoted all his energies. After placing some improvements upon it, however, he came to Macon County and bought the farm upon which he is now living, which was also a tract of wild land, upon which not a furrow had been turned or an improvement made. His labors have transformed it into rich and fertile fields, that yield a golden tribute in return for the care and cultivation of the owner. The farm comprises on hundred and fifty acres of valuable land, and is considered one of the best in the township.
On the 20th of September, 1848, Mr. Cherry was united in marriage with Miss Susan Hall, a native of Tennessee, born March 13, 1824. Her parents were Garland and Penelope (Strickland) Hall. The mother died in Tennessee, after which the father left the old home and in 1830 took up his residence in Macon County, Ill., where his death occurred sixteen years later. He was called to his final rest in 1846, when sixty-two years of age. By the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Cherry have been born eight children, seven sons and one daughter. Amos, the eldest of the family, follows farming in Sangamon County; Alfred is a well-known agriculturist of this county; John is engaged in mining in Dakota; Thomas A. is a farmer and carpenter of Nebraska; David is a painter and carpenter and resides in this county; Maggie, the only daughter, is still at home; and George and James are both resident farmers of Macon County.
Mr. Cherry has led a busy and useful life, devoting his attention during the greater part of the time to his business interests. In politics he is a stalwart supporter of Republican principles. He cast his first Presidential vote for William Henry Harrison, and affiliated with the Whig part until its dissolution, when he jonind the ranks of the Republican party. He has never sought or desired public office, yet has served as School Director in his township for a number of years. He belongs to the Christian Chruch. Mr. Cherry is one of the oldest settlers of Pleasant View Township, having long made his home in this community, and it is with pleasure that we present to our readers this record of his life.

- Note: HISTORY OF DELAWARE COUNTY, PA
Francis Chadsey, or Chads, as the name afterwards came to be written, - now frequently and improperly spelled Chadd, - emigrated from Wiltshire, England, early in 1689, with his wife, and resided at or near Chichester until about 1696, when his name appears on the list of taxables for Birmingham. It is presumed that he located on the five hundred acres surveyed to Henry Bernard, or Barnet, early in March, 1684, and conveyed to Daniel Smith, March 28, 29, 1686, which tract included all the present village of Chad's Ford. Francis Chads did not, however, acquire title to the estate until Nov. 24, 1702, and on May 4th of the following year he purchased one hundred and eleven acres adjoining his estate to the southeast, from Edmund Butcher. Chads served as a member of the Assembly from Chester County for the years 1706 and 1707, and about that time, it is believed by Gilbert Cope, he erected his corn-mill, the first in Pennsylvania, on the Brandywine, for dying in 1713 he devised to one of his sons "a half share in my corn-mill." This mill, which is supposed to have been a log building, was permitted to go to decay, until in time its very site was forgotten; indeed, that it had ever existed passed out of the memory of man, until in 1860 in making the excavations for the foundations of the brick mill erected by Caleb Brinton, a short distance west of the station of the Baltimore Central Railroad, at Chad's Ford a log with an old wrought-iron spike was found, with other evidences establishing the location of Chads' mill. That this was the first mill on the Brandywine, as is frequently asserted, cannot be successfully maintained, for as early as May 17, 1689, a petition of "ye Inhabitants of Brandywine River or Creek against ye dam made upon ye creek, wch hinders ye fish passing up to ye great damage of ye inhabitants,"1 shows conclusively that a mill of some kind had then been erected. We know that twenty years before Chads' mill was built, on April 2, 1667, "Cornelius Empson's petition Concerning a Bridg Road and Water mill on Brandywine Creek was Read."2 This mill, however, was in Delaware.
