      Pg. 606:
      Amos House was a nephew of Elizabeth Chads, widow of John, and lived with her in Birmingham. He married Sarah,daughter of John and Joanna Townsend, of East Bradford, with whom he made acquaintance when she was learning a trade from home. Going to see her at her parents’ house he asked their consent, to a marriage, to which her father objected because he was not a member of meeting. The mother said, "if Amos House was a member even so, he was not her choice,”whereupon the young man hoped they would at least allow him to talk to her that evening. This request was ungraciously granted, with a hope expressed that they would make short work of it; and this they did by planning au elopement at a nearly day. Sarah lost her life, 1, 13, 1777, from fever contracted by nursing a sick soldier. 
       
      Amos married a socond wife, Martha Edwards, and again, 11,24,1790, Mary, daughter of William and Ann Swayne. His children by the first wife were Elizabeth, James, Phebe, Susanna (m. Joshua Harvey),and Martha (m. Emanuel Darlington); by the second, Mary (m. Mordccai Hayas), Johu (m. Esther Speakman), Benjamin (m.Phebe Trimble); and by the last wife, William S. House (m. Phebe Wickersham).
