    121, "[Arriving in Tallmadge, Ohio, in 1816, from Warren, Connecticut, the family of Warren and Lucy Sturtevant] while they were building their cabin, stayed at the home of Deacon Salmon Sackett, an earlier migrant from Warren. [Six years later] in the summer, when a swarm of bees appeared, Mr Sackett hived them and gave them to the boys with the remark that though they probably wouldn't live through the winter, perhaps they would furnish a bit of sweetening. The [Sturtevant] boys tended the bees carefully. Honey and beeswax were cash articles, and with the money they brought Julian and his brother began their college career."
