First name may be John instead of Thomas. From "Genealogy and History of the Derthicks and Related Derricks", By Spencer and Goodpasture, Gateway Press, Inc. Baltimore, 1986.

Buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Brodhead WI with Derrick family

From "History of Hardin Co, OH",p. 956:

Capt P.C. Boslow, retired, Patterson. Among the pioneers of Hardin County we find and record the name of Capt. Boslow, whose father John was a native of Virginia, but whose father, again in early life, settled in Canada, where John matured and married Mary Condon of New Brunswick. In 1832 he came to Ohio with his wife and 8 children, settling near Cleveland, but he died in 1848 in Green County, WI, and his widow died in Richmond, IN in 1881. Of their 9 children, Peter C. is the 4th, and was born near Hamilton, Ontario, Canada in 1819, but from the age of 13 years has been a resident of Ohio, and since 1845 has lived in Hardin County. The following year, he and H. D. Harrison laid out Patterson, and in the same year he married Harriet Sherrer of Ross County. Soon afterward he opened a store, and for a number of years he was identified with all the leading interests in and about Patterson.

In letter from Michael Cunningham of Gilmer TX to Audrey Delaney dtd 1 Aug 1983:

In 1840 or 1841 May Condon & John Boslow leave Canada and move to Broadhead, Green County, WI. They moved near their cousins who moved there before.

Mary Stewart Condon:

Buried: Greenwood Cemetery, Brodhead, Green Co., WI

Notes:

"Following the death of her husband in 1848 Mrs. Boslow made her home with her daughter Mrs. F. H. Derrick for over 20 years and was affectionately known to relatives and friends as 'Aunt Polly' After the death of Mrs. Derrick she lived with her youngest son, G. R. Boslow, Richmond, Indiana for several years until her death in 1880. She is buried in Brodhead Cemetery by the side of her husband." Ten Eyck source.

She appears on the 1850 census at the F. H. Derrick home in Spring Grove, Green Co, WI.

From Ten Eyck source, chap. 5, p. 37 - "Mary Condon, a sister of Nathaniel B. Condon, was born near St. John's, New Brunswick in 1795. She married John Boslow about 1812. They lived in Canada some 30 years and came to Wisconsin in 1844 settling on the farm 1 1/2 miles south of Brodhead, later known as the Boslow Place."


From Audrey Condon Delaney letter dtd 23 Feb 1990:
Mary Condon, b. 1795, in Pr. William, N.B., dau of Thomas & Ruth Condon. I
have never found Ruth's maiden name but in light of the following I would
safely assume it was Lafferty!! Mary had a half brother John Fitz Stewart
b. c. 1787 then full brothers, Thomas Lafferty, b. 1789, Bryan Lafferty b.
1792, Mary 1795, Johnson Lafferty, b. 1799, & finally Nathaniel Bloodsworth
Condon b. 1803........ Notice how Mary named her children:
Magdalena or Lanie must be for John's mother or grandmother;
Ruth, for her own mother;
Peter C. for John's father;
Thomas Condon for her own father;
Mary for herself;
Johson for her brother & also her husband;
then Harriet, Guernsey, James, C.C., & Ida
...We can not prove Mary's middle name was Stewart, so please ignore that.
(it was old Dr. Arnold Condon who dreamed that one up with no proof)... "

Following info from "Genealogy and History of the Derthicks and Related Derricks", By Spencer and Goodpasture. Gateway Press, Inc. Baltimore,1986:

Birth date and location. Mother of Harriet Boslow Derrick. Spent 30 yrs of married life in Canada and Ohio. Came to Brodhead in 1844. Husband died a few years later.

The Condon Lumber Co. was one of the oldest business establishments in Green Co. WI. Lumber for the first new buildings in Brodhead were hauled in from Milwaukee by ox teams. The Arnold Condon House at 902 1st Center Ave. was built about 1883 and is one of the historic landmarks of Brodhead. House was purchased by Alice Condon in 1915 from the original owner and remains in the Condon family (1984).

Cites following graves included in the Derrick family homestead burial ground:

Ransom Condon, 1841-1862 (civil war casualty?)
Bryan Condon

From "The Condon Clan, Descendants of Thomas Condon, Ontario, and his son Nathaniel Bloodsworth Condon, WI and Allied Lines.: Edited by Mary Poast and Dr. Arnold Condon, published by Condon Family of Brodhead, WI, Aug 5,1983:

Mary's birth date listed as 1795 vice 1796.

Mary Stewart Condon was born in Prince William, New Brunswick, in 1795, the daughter of Thomas and Ruth. She was an older sister of Nathaniel and came with the family to Binbrook, Upper Canada (Ontario). When only 16, she married John Boslow and they lived near the historic town of Stoney Creek. At least 6 children were born to them (may be in error).

The family migrated to the frontier state of Ohio before 1838. In the spring of 1844 they moved again to Wisconsin and became some of the very earliest settlers in Spring Grove, Green County. Several of their grown children stayed in Ohio.

Mary's husband died in 1848, only 4 years after moving to Wisconsin. She then broke up housekeeping at 52 and moved to the next farm where she lived with her daughter, Harriet Derrick, for 20 years. Harriet died and she then moved to Richmond, Indiana, where she lived the last 12 years with her youngest son, G.R. Boslow.

Concerning Mary's children:

1. Mary married James Edward Newson, Jan 11, 1838, in Hardin County, Ohio. They had 6 daughters, one son, and numerous descendants. Michael Cunningham, Gilbert Texas, is the son of the son of the son of the daughter, of the daughter, of the daughter, Mary. In other words, Mary Condon Boslow is his fourth great grandmother. He is only 31, but wrote a book on: "Genealogy and U," also a genealogy column for 67 newspapers. He has a son age 6 and triplet daughters age 4 and works for a steel plant. In 1982 he wrote to the Brodhead Condons requesting information on Mary Condon Boslow. Later he furnished information on Mary Nelson and Peter Boslow.

2. Peter C. Boslow born in 1819, also stayed in Hardin County, Ohio. In 1846 he founded the town of Patterson. Much later in Nov 1861, he formed CO. C of the 82nd and Ohio Volunteer Infantry, was commissioned Captain and served 3 years.

3. Harriet married her neighbor, Frank Derrick, son of Adolphus who came to Spring Grove from Clarence, New York. The Derrick men were highly respected because of their Christian conduct and community leadership. Harriet and Frank had four sons and 3 daughters. Of these, Frank Jr., stayed in Brodhead and was a lawyer and much admired by everyone. He was a tall rugged man who made wonderful impersonations of Lincoln and Uncle Sam.

Harriet's son, Paul, was perhaps Brodhead's most illustrious citizen when he retired there. Paul Derrick had gone to Chicago to learn advertising and went into that business. He started the first nation-wide advertising campaigns, launching Quaker Oats into their success. Later, he was prominent in New York advertising and from there he went to London and had the first American advertising agency there. He was President of the London Chamber of Commerce and presented American society girls to the Queen's Court. After traveling the world, he chose to return to Brodhead where he built and lived in Panda Lodge, a beautiful Tudor style house.

4. Thomas Boslow was 22 when his father died. He probably stayed on the home farm because he was still in Spring Grove at age 37.

Ida married a son from the Klumb family who lived nearby. Ida and J.J. went to Nebraska with Clinton Condon, homesteaded in the same area and lived next to C.C. Boslow according to the map.

G.R. Boslow went to Richmond, Indiana. He was the youngest son according to his Mother's obituary and she died at his home, but was brought to Brodhead for burial.

Buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Brodhead WI with Derrick family. Tombstone reads born in 1795.

Listed in LDS IGI. Birth date listed as 1795.
