    FORT BOSLEY, OR BOSLEY'S MILLS. Northumberland County, Pennsylvania. Fort Bosley was situated in the forks of the Chillisquaqua, at Washingtonville, Derry township, Montour county [at the time it was Turbut Twp, Northumberland County], and was the grist mill of a Mr. Bosley, who moved here from Maryland a few years before the Revolution, bringing his slaves with him. He built the mill, it is said, in 1773; it is supposed he fortified (stockaded) the mill in 1777; upon the Indians becoming troublesome it was garrisoned by troops and recognized by the military authorities as of importance. After the fall of Fort Freeland it became more so, holding the forks of the Chillisquaque and defending the stream below it. The Chillisquaque Valley and its surroundings are among the most beautiful in the State. At Washingtonville, the main stream is formed by one considerable branch coming from the Muncy Hills, following through the rich lime stone lands to the south. The east branch here joins it, making a fine stream that then flows southwesterly to the river. This great scope of fine arable lands attracted settlers early, Bosleys Mills became a necessity, and, situated as it was, within the forks about sixty to eighty rods above the junction of the branches, on the east bank of the North Branch of these streams. It soon became widely known; roads and paths led to it as a central point, and on the Indians becoming troublesome and the mill fortified, it became a haven of refuge at which the wives and families could be placed in safety at alarms, while the husband and father scouted for intelligence of the foe or defended the fort. As Bosleys Mills do not appear to have had a heavy garrison of troops (twenty men at most) at any time, the garrison was most probably augmented by the near settlers, of which there was quite a number. It must have been strong, as we have no account of any attack on the place, lying as it does below the great war path through or over the Muncy Hills, it must have been looked upon by the foe as strong. Col. Hunter to President Reed, dated Fort Augusta, 26, 1779, says: "Your favor of ye 2d Inst. I received by Mr. Martin and I am sorry to acquaint you it was not in my power to send any of the Ranging Company to assist at Guarding the stores up here from Estherton, as what few men Capt. Kemplon had under his command was stationed at Bosleys Mills on Chilisquaqua." (See Penn Archives, 1st Series, Vol. 7, p. 510.) Lieut. Col. Weltner to Board of War, dated: Northumberland, April 9, 1780, says: "I have this moment received an express from the West branch, about 12 miles from this Town that the Indians have killed and scalped one man and two children, took one woman prisoner, but she happily made her escape from them in the night. The country is very much alarmed, and likely to go to the flight as they cannot be supplied with provisions, ammunition or flints, as these commodities being so very scarce. I have manned three material outposts, viz: Fort Jenkins, Fort Montgomery and Bosley's Mills. It is out of my power to scatter my men any more, as I have scarcely as many in Town as will man 2 pieces of artillery."

    Father: William Bosley b: 11 MAR 1712/13 in Baltimore, Maryland (St. Johns Parish)
    Mother: Elizabeth Dimmitt b: ABT 1711 in Baltimore County, Maryland

    Marriage 1 Hannah Bull b: ABT 1737 in Baltimore, Baltimore County, Maryland
    • Married: 18 OCT 1759 in Baltimore County, Maryland (St. John's Parish)
    • Note:
      In the Big Bosley Book there are entries: First wife-Hannah Bull, was the daughter of Jacob & Rachel Bull. Second wife may have been Susannah Price. A marriage between a John Bosley and a Susannah Price took place in Baltimore on July 27, 1785. With 3 deeds calling out the wife as Susannah I think there is a pretty good chance he had a second wife. The ladies who applied to the DAR years ago may have known something we don't know. I had a search conducted in the vicinity of Washingtonville for a grave for Hannah Bosley with no luck. I have not attempted to find the record in Baltimore that might support the marriage in 1785.
