[3083] BIOGRAPHY: Not for the first time in the former century and a half the heir to throne was of tender years. Perhaps what is more striking is that James was King of Scotland at the age of just seventeen months. A Governor was required to rule, nominally in the interest of the infant king. This Governor was John Duke of Albany, a grandson of James II of Scotland. This governorship led to a bitter dispute as Albany was a staunch Francophile and even spoke French as his first language. This leaning he had towards France was directly opposed by those who preferred the friendship of England. In the end Albany was dismissed as Governor due to him spending more time in France than in Scotland. James now came to power fully. At the age of 14 he ordered the suppression of the warring clans and the destruction of the border raiders. Later he fell out with King Henry VIII of England over his apparent leaning towards France. Once more war broke out with the Scots being humiliated at the Battle of Solway Moss. With no surviving (legitimate) children and close to death he was told of the birth of perhaps the most famous Stewart of all, his daughter Mary Stewart. James had married in Paris in 1537. His bride on this occasion was Princess Madeleine de Valois of France. The marriage was short-lived as Madeleine died just 6 months later. His second marriage, to Marie de Guise Lorraine, brought him three children. Unfortunately both James and Arthur died in infancy. He was survived by Mary however.

[3172] BIOGRAPHY: Just one week old when she came to the throne of Scotland, it was obvious a Regent would have to be appointed to rule in her name. The next in line to the throne, the Earl of Arran was designated this position. In keeping with the political marriages that were common place in this era it was Arran who agreed to the betrothal of a seven month old Mary to Henry VIII's son, Edward. The marriage was not to take place until Mary had reached the ripe old age of 11. This betrothal was not much more than a peace treaty between the two nations. Arran was Protestant in his religion and it was this religious leaning which led to the Catholics snatching away the infant Mary, crowning her Queen of Scotland and denouncing the betrothal. This act infuriated Henry and England savagely attacked Scotland. The Scots became increasingly split between the pro-English, Protestant, camp and the pro-French, Catholic, faction. Upon the coronation of Edward as King Edward VI the English occupied Scotland. Mary fled to France where she married the Dauphin 11 years later. So it was that the Queen of Scots married into the French monarchy rather than the English. Mary's mother, Marie of Guise Lorraine replaced Arran as Regent and with French support drove the English out of Scotland. Scotland now stood as a French colony. Mary returned to an increasingly Protestant Scotland at the age of 18. She led a fascinating life. She was married to her cousin, Lord Darnley. Upon discovering his penchant for affairs she had him murdered. She then married his murderer, the Earl of Bothwell. This led to her downfall as the Scottish people would not accept Bothwell as King. She was therefore forced to abdicate in favour of her only son, James. This was a turning point in the fortunes of Britain as James was to be the first ruler of both England and Scotland. (From Camelot International http://www.camelotintl.com) BIOGRAPHY: Mary, Queen of Scots, was executed on the orders of her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I of England at Fotheringay Castle in Northamptonshire.

[6736] Various sources give John's middle name (and that of his mother) as Goold and Gold. John G. Sanburn purchased a number of tracts of land on the south side of Main Street in Knoxville when it was the county seat. He apparantly planned to subdivide the area but was unable to realize his plans when the county seat was transferred to Galesburg. "In 1832, John G. Sanburn brought a stock of goods here. Down to the time of his death he was a prominent figure in the town's history. He was Knoxville's first postmaster and held many important county and government positions, including that of the first Circuit and County Clerk. He died April 14, 1865." -- History of Knox County, p 857 John G. Sanburn opened Knoxville, Illinois' first general store in this cabin in the spring of 1832. When he moved to Knoxville, the county seat, in 1832 to open his store, he purchased or secured a large portion of all the lots in town. He married Althea Owen and they had seven children. He was the first County clerk, first clerk of the Circuit Court, first Recorder, first Probate Judge. first Postmaster of Knoxville and later in his life, was the Treasurer of the Board of Trustees of Knox College and a trustee of Ewing Female University. He died April 14, 1865, the same day President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. The cabin formerly housing the general store was discovered in October 1963 when a house, owned by Bernice LaFolette was being demolished. The butternut timbers, squared and put together with clay and hay, were uncovered when the siding was removed. The cabin had served as the kitchen of the home. The original roof had been cut into. A neighbor noticed the old timbers and raced over to ask that demolition work be halted until the cabin's origins were researched. When the origins of the cabin were determined, the volunteer-run Knox County Historical Sites, Inc. immediately began to raise funds to move the cabin to its current location near the Old Knox County Courthouse. The cabin was restored the following year. A fireplace chimney was added, made out of native stones gathered from nearby creek beds by local youth. The inside of the cabin was restored to represent a general store from the era. The building is the remaining remnant of Knoxville's log cabin era. -- Knox County Historical Society "To them were born six children, four sons and two daughters." [John Henry died without marrying.] -- History of Knox County, p 868 The father of the subject of this notice was the sixth child in order of birth of his parents' family. He was raised on the farm and grew to manhood in his native county, receiving an academical education at Canandaigua Academy. In 1817 he went to Ohio, where he taught school one year. In 1818, he started West on a prospecting tour in company with some other young men. They made their way to the Ohio River, where they secured a small boat and drifted down the waters of that river to a little above the mouth of the Wabash River. During this trip they visited Illinois, and later he returned to New York, having made the greater portion of the return journey on foot. After his return home he engaged in clerking at Black Rock, which he continued until 1825. That year he again started West and joined an elder brother, who was in the land business at Vandalia, Ill., and assisted his brother, and dealt in land to some considerable extent until 1830. He then came to this county and located at Henderson Grove, where he put in a stock of goods and was the first to engage in mercantile pursuits at that place. He continued to do business there until the county seat was located at Knoxville, in the spring of 1832, when he removed his stock of goods to that city. Mr. Sanburn had been instrumental in securing the organization of the county, being secretary of the meeting which was called to elect a committee to present a petition to the Judge of Fulton County for the organization, and when the county was organized he became the first Circuit Clerk. When the land of this county was placed in market by the Government, Mr. Sanburn entered a tract, which he superintended and had cultivated and improved, although he continued to reside in the city. After continuing in active mercantile business for a few years he retired from the same, and at the time of his death, April 14, 1865, he was the owner of quite a tract of land, a portion of which has since been made a part of the present city of Knoxville. He also owned at the date of his demise a well- improved farm adjoining the city. He was married Nov. 3, 1831, to Alethea Owen. She was born near Geneva, Ontario Co., N. Y., and was the daughter of Dr. Noah and Elizabeth (Gilmore) Owen. Her father having died, she, in company with her mother and brother, came to this county in 1829 and settled near the present site of Gilson. There were seven children born to Mr. and Mrs. Sanborn - Elizabeth, wife of James Fitch, a resident of Cleveland, Ohio; Mary L., wife of E. L. Phillips, of Galesburg; John Henry, died Dec. 1, 1883, at Abingdon; Charles W., a resident of Berea, Cuyahoga Co., Ohio ; Francis G., subject of this notice ; Alethea, a teacher, and Walter G., a resident of Chicago. The father had filled various official positions, among which were Circuit Clerk, Clerk of the County Commissioners' Court, Postmaster and also Assistant Assessor of Internal Revenue. He was a member of the Episcopal Church and was Senior Warden of St. John's Church, Knoxville, for many years. -- Portrait and Biographical Album of Knox County, Illinois; published 1856; pages 658-659
