Abraham Truax1
b. 16 Jun 1782, d. 28 Mar 1849
Pedigree

     Abraham Truax was the son of Abraham Jacobse Truax and Elizabeth Van Antwerp. Abraham Truax was baptized on 16 June 1782 at Schenectady, NY.1 He married Jane Scott, daughter of John Scott and Dorcas Freeman, before 1806 at Quebec. Abraham Truax died on 28 March 1849 at Mersea Twp., Essex Co., ON.
Abraham Truax was also known as Abram Truax. ‘prayed for land’ in Whitton Twp., QC. He moved to Wheatley, Kent Co., ON in 1834.

In 1834, Abraham Truax, Jane Scott, and 13 of their children left Quebec and headed for Wheatley, Kent County, near Point Pelee in southwestern Ontario. In their original Ontario land petition, they gave the reason why:

“That your Petitioner with a wife and 13 children have been compelled to emmigrate from the Lower Province, in consequence of the death of his son aged 24, who was killed or rather murdered by one, who was tried for the offence and sentenced to a long imprisonment, but which sentence was mitigated, and the offender was at large to the great inquietude of your Petitioner and his family – who in consequence have been compelled to abandon their former residence and seek Asylum in this province, should your Petitioner be fortunate enough in succeeding in the prayer of his Petition.”
– dated Sept. 25th, 1834
(see notes under William Archer Truax for details of the murder)

When Abraham, Jane and their family arrived in Wheatley, this area of the province was almost virgin territory – very little of the land was settled, and there were few if any roads. Quite an undertaking for a couple in their fifties, even with the help of their grown children. A few years later, the family moved a few miles west into Essex County, near the growing town of Leamington. In 1849, Abraham Truax died at the age of 67. In his will, Abraham only names his yet-unmarried daughters and his youngest son, Martin, who he entrusts with the care of his mother Jane. This he did faithfully, and Jane lived with Martin for the next 30 years until her death at the remarkable age of 93.

Jane Scott1

Pedigree

     Jane Scott was the daughter of John Scott and Dorcas Freeman. Jane Scott was born on 15 December 1787 at Quebec.2,3 She married Abraham Truax, son of Abraham Jacobse Truax and Elizabeth Van Antwerp, before 1806 at Quebec. Jane Scott died on 12 September 1880 at Mersea Twp., Essex Co., ON.4,5
Jane Scott was also known as Nancy Jane Scott.

Jane Scott was the granddaughter of two Loyalists:

Walter Scott was a tenant of Gen. Philip Schuyler near Stillwater, Saratoga Co., NY. He was ‘warmly invited to join the Rebelling Americans’ in 1776. When he declined, he and his son John (Jane’s father) were imprisoned for six months, then paroled, at which time they joined with Burgoyne’s advancing forces. They settled at Noyan, QC.

John Freeman, another tenant of Schuyler’s, lived on the farm that became famous as the site of the 1st Battle of Saratoga in the fall of 1777. He and his 13 year old son Thomas also joined Burgoyne’s forces as scouts, and when Burgoyne was defeated, the family removed with the retreating army to St. Johns, QC. Unfortunately there was a smallpox epidemic ravaging the town, and shortly after their arrival John, his wife, and seven of their ten children perished, leaving only young Thomas and two sisters, Mary and Dorcas (Jane’s mother).

William Archer Truax1
b. 13 Mar 1810, d. 01 Jan 1834
Pedigree

     William Archer Truax was the son of Abraham Truax and Jane Scott. William Archer Truax was born on 13 March 1810 at Dunham, QC.2 He was baptized on 14 July 1810 at Dunham, QC. He died on 1 January 1834 at Quebec; killed in a bar brawl.

From ‘The Montreal Gazette’:

Jan. 11, 1834 – “A respectable farmer, residing in Stanbridge, named William Truax, was, on the 1st instant, stabbed with a knife, by one Archelaus Walsh [sic], Jr. of the same place, and almost immediately expired. His assassin has escaped, and has been subsequently seen armed with a gun and pistol.”

Walsh (Welch) was helped by family members to flee to New Hampshire, but he returned to Quebec in the hopes that he would be allowed to remain free on bail until his trial. This turned out not to be the case, and he was placed in custody on January 25th.

Welch was brought up before the Grand Jury in Montreal on March 3rd, and several witnesses testified to the events of that night. Apparently William, the victim, had gone looking for Welch for the express purpose of berating him over his having beaten another man. He found Welch at a local tavern and launched into a verbal attack. When things got a little too heated, William tried to smooth things over by buying a round. Welch refused, and threatened to call the law on William. Soon after this, the fight became physical, and William was stabbed in the belly, either by accident, in self-defence, or intentionally. Welch tried to leave, but someone caught up to him, knocked the knife from his hand and brought him back to the tavern, where William lay dying. Welch appeared remorseful and begged for William’s forgiveness, which he apparently received.

Given the circumstances, the Attorney General agreed to reduce the charge from murder to manslaughter. Archelaus Welch was found guilty and sentenced to six months in jail. However, in their petition, William’s parents claimed that this sentence was ‘mitigated’ (probably on appeal) and that he was set free. Given the circumstances, this is entirely possible.

The de la Granges were a Huguenot family, descended from Omie de la Grange of France. Omie was born about 1625, and arrived in New York in 1656. In 1663, he moved to Rensselaerwyck, near Albany, and worked as a fur trader. He was married to Annetje de Vries. Two of their grandchildren married Truaxs – Lysbet married Jacob, and her sister Christina married Jacob’s brother Abraham. In fact, I have records of no fewer than seven marriages between the La Grange / de la Grange family and the Truaxs. Other descendants of Omie de la Grange later settled near Frelighsburg in Quebec, and the town of Lagrange was named after them.
