         Jonathan b. and m. at Rochester, Ma.  Mary Haskins, born in Rochester (Roch VR1: 185 “Hoskins”), joined the Wareham Church 1739.  Jonathan, Juryman 1752, Deer Reeve 1756, 57, Surveyor of  Highways 1759, 43, 48, 49, 50, 51, 53, 55, 58, 60, 61, 63, 65, 68, Sealer 1748 to 1758 inc., 62.

 Mary Haskins was the dau. of John and Ruth (Atkins) Haskins. Ruth Atkins Haskins is identified in an NEHGR article, by Mrs. John Barclay, as the youngest of “The Ten Daughters of Thomas Atkins of Kennebec (NEHGR 121: 244-45).   Jonathan and Mary both d. at Wareham, Ma.

Joseph 5.7 is a possible son of this family.  He has been confused with Joseph, son of Jeremiah and Jane (Lovell) Bumpus by Charles Bump, and followed by LAB, who said that Joseph who married Ruth Reed also m2 Mercy Haskins but this is proved incorrect by the guardianship papers of Joseph and Ruth (Reed) Bumpus’ daughters Ruth and Zilpha in 1758 which show that their father Joseph was dead by 1758

       At this time I believe it is apropos to insert the BEAR STORY. This is as it appears in the "History of Madison County, N.Y., 1872, by Mrs. L.M.

       Hammond, by: Truar Smith & Co., Syracuse, N.Y. pp. 634, 635 and 636.  This is a true story well written by the author.  It is in reference to

       Jesse (g.p 5.38) and his brother Abner (gp 5.40).

 

                                                                             THE BEAR STORY

           The dangers and anxieties incident to this life were not few, and not the least formidable of these dangers arose from the daring encroachment

           of wild beasts. Encounters with these wild animals were quite common and there were instances where their ferocity proved too much for the

          agility and strength of the hunters.  A circumstance of this kind took place in the northern part of town, August 1802, which produced much excitement

          in this and adjacent towns.

           The tracks of a very large bear had been seen in the vicinity of the house of Jesse and Abner Bump, in the northeast quarter. Abner was a bachelor

           residing with his brother's family. It was a Saturday afternoon, the farm work for the week being done, and there was leisure for hunting; they therefore

           resolved to follow up the trail of the animal whose tracks they had seen quite fresh in the morning, and the fact that flocks and corn fields were in danger

          of depredations from the bold desperado made it necessary to arrest the progress. Accordingly they started in pursuit, following the tracks in the direction

          of Chittenango (Chittenning as it was called) Creek, and near the town line adjoining Fenner they overtook mistress Bruin while following a tributary of

          the creek. She was a splendid animal, in condition of flesh which betokened her familiarity with the farmers flocks and crops of magnificent proportions,

         and moved along with perfect ease and fearlessness after beholding her pursuers. The hunters lost no time to avail themselves of this opportunity for

         attack.  Jesse at once fired and wounded the bear, which so exasperated her that she turned, and exhibited signs of fighting. No time now was to be lost,

         as they were very near the enraged animal and both men were consious of their safety depended upon the surety of Abner's shot. Instantly Abner, though

         in a bad position to make a fatal shot, raised his piece and aimed directly at her side, hoping thereby to cripple her, and thus keep her at bay till his brother

         could reload. Unfortunately the gun missed fired and the infuriated beast was upon him in a moment, hurling her massive body against him with such forced he was precipitated upon his face in, the bed of the shallow stream, which was close by, Simutaneously the bear sprung upon him, and with

         her huge tusks commenced the fearful work of tearing him to pieces. All of this had been acted in a very short space of time, and so quickly, that Jesse,

         instead of finishing reloading, had only time to grasp a club and make a leap upon the bear the next instant after she sprang upon her victim. His blows

         with the club fell heavily upon the unflinching animal's head and nose, while fearcly tugging at Abner's bleeding scalp, but the weapon was rotten and

         broke, and fell from his grasp. The sight of his brother's bared skull nerved him to greater energy, and as the monster's fury had so increased on

         tasting blood, that she seemed oblivious to the assailant's attacks, he enabled to thrust one hand between the jaws, as she opened in her fiendish repast,

         and instantly closed his fingers with a vise like grip around her tongue and drew it savagely forth from her mouth, while with the other hand he caught a

         stone from the creek, with which, heavy and well directed blows were dealt on the nose of the now cowaring brute. A few ineffectual struggles and

         endeavors to get free, and the bear, overcome by pain and the extreme heat of the sultry day fell back exhausted and motionless. Releasing his hold,

         Jesse turned to his brother, who lay insensible, his head in a fearful mangled condition. As soon as the bear had recovered herself, she crawled a

         few rods away and lay down a short time the stream. Anxious for his brothers life, Jesse Bump made no attempt to arrest the animals retreat which

        she soon effected. His lusty shouts for assistance were soon answered by the arrival of some of the settlers but by this time he found himself scarcely

        able to walk, and upon examination his leg was found to have been broken by a crushing wrench of the vicious beast's jaws.  At what time this occured

        during the exciting battle he could never tell. However, there was no disputing the fact as the proofs were there in the marks of the teeth upon his limb.

        His wrist was badly mangled. He was placed upon horseback and carried to his family.

           Abner was aroused to consciousness by stimulates, but before the means for removing one in so dangerous condition could be got together, it was

        night, while the distance to any inhatation was considerable, and the way through the forest very rough: it was, therefore decided to remain with Abner

        upon the ground, and make him comfortable as possible through the night. The use of stimulates prevented relapse during the ensuing hours, and very

        early Sabbath morning, the news having spread like wild fire, the woods were thronging with people who had come from miles around, anxious neighbors

        hastened to render all the assistance in their power, and the suffering disfigured victim was carried home an a "litter".

        The services of Dr. Jorias Fay of Cazenovia, was immediately procured, who removed the mud and debris from beneath the scalp and sewed together

        the mangled remains.  He then set Jesse's broken limb, and in due time both hunters recovered from their injuries.  The destiny of Mistress Bruin was

        decided a few days after. this encounter. She met her fate from a bullet, shot from a gun in the hand of an Indian hunter, a few miles down the creek.

        She was considered a mammoth prize, and fair trophy of the hunter's superior prowness.

             This is the very rosily written story of the Bear Hunt that was taken on by Jesse Bumpus(g.p 5.38) and his brother Abner Bumpus(g.p 5.40) in the

       Town of Nelson and Fenner, Madison Co., N.Y.

         Newly discovered information today leads to new questions regarding what has been written in previous genealogies on this family. In three of the four genealogies known to have been compiled during the mid to late 1900’s, evidently beginning with Charles H. Bump’s genealogy, circa 1940, and followed by Mrs. John Barclay’s article in NEHGR: 43 (No. 2) (Apr 1967) as well as Lynn Albert Bumpus’ work of 1985, it is stated that Joseph, son of Jeremiah and Jane (Lovell) Bumpus married 1) Ruth Reed and 2) Mercy Haskins.  Mrs. Barclay and LAB both have it that Joseph probably died before his father as he was not mentioned in his father's estate (of 1770).  Actually, Joseph was not mentioned in his father's will (of 1758), and Guardianship records of 1759 for Ruth and Zilpha Bumpus “minor daughters of Joseph Bumpus Late of Wareham,” being the two cited daughters of Joseph and Ruth (Reed) Bumpus, clearly state that Ruth and Zilpha’s father Joseph was deceased.

        In addition, the Revolutionary War Pension application of Joseph Bumpus II (1763-1836), son of Joseph and Mercy (Haskins) Bumpus (WVR) shows, in a written declaration, that his father was still alive after he, Joseph II, returned home from the war. Joseph states in that declaration, evidently upon being asked if he had a written discharge to prove his service, that  he “had a written discharge & brought it home & my father sent it to Boston to get my wages & I  have not seen it since. 

    Guardianship provisions for Ruth and Zilpha, minor daughters of Joseph Bumpus and Ruth Reed, were appointed Nathaniel Ruggles of Rochester on 10 Jun 1759  Joseph who married Mercy Hoskens, at which time their the same father Joseph was given as "late of Wareham."  All other children attributed in previous genealogies to Joseph, son of Jeremiah and Jane (Lovell) Bumpus are the children of the Joseph who married Mercy Haskins and can be found given as such in the Wareham Town Book A. Neither were Ruth and Zilpha Bumpus mentioned in that will of 1758, raising the question why Jeremiah would not have made provisions for the daughters of a dead son, IF Joseph who married Ruth Reed were indeed the son of Jeremiah.     

    Joseph Bumpus, son of Jeremiah and his wife Jane, was baptized at the First Church of Rochester, MA

    on 24 June 1739 with his siblings Jeremiah, Ruth, Seth, Phebe and Benjamin. Joseph Bump and Ruth Reed,

    both “of Wareham”, were married at Wareham by Rowland Thacher on 20 October 1749 (WCR). Intentions of marriage

    for Joseph Bumpus of Wareham and Mercy Hoskens were recorded at Rochester 6 Jan. 1754 (RVR).  

    It is, thus, now open to debate as to which Joseph was the son of Jeremiah and Jane (Lovell) Bumpus.

    He was Deer Reeve 1762, 63, 66, 67; Hog Reeve 1744.
