Two of Phoebe Hutchinson Dring’s sons were particularly close to her…Nathaniel Hutchinson and William. After her death, Nathaniel Sr. sent them to America. They settled in Kansas where they began homesteading 2.5 acres of farmland. It seems that there were advertisements in the English papers about homesteading land in Kansas and many, many English families immigrated there.

The Pilgrim Home in Over, Cammbridgeshire England

Pilgrim House in Over, Cambridgeshre, England.

Shortly after Phoebe died, her husband Nathaniel ran into some bad luck. His outbuildings, barns, stables, etc., caught on fire and burned down. He was depressed over the death of his wife and he was getting letters from his sons telling him how great Kansas was. So he sold his house, called Pilgrim Home, and bought first class tickets to sail to America and join his sons. He took some of his children with him and had to leave the rest in England because his home sold for much less than he presumed it would.

One of the daughters he brought with him was Mary Maria, called Polly. Sailing first class, they were invited to dinner at the Captain’s table. Eventually, the Captain and Polly fell in love and became engaged to be married. Upon arrival in the USA, Polly travelled with her father to Kansas. Their new house was so small compared to their very large Pilgrim Home in England. When Polly saw the new house, she was so embarrassed by it that she refused to ever write to the Captain again.

Nathaniel, and his son, Nathaniel Hutchinson, both homesteaded properties that were side by side. To meet the homestead requirements, one of which required building a home, they built one home direct on the property line, which met the requirement; thus preventing having to build a second home.

Some time later, Nathaniel sent for the rest of his children. His oldest daughter, Frances, called Fanny, had been taking care of the children. She purchased their sailing tickets and took the precaution of placing them inside her underclothes for protection from thieves. During their travel to the port, Fanny lost all her money. She had funds neither to return to Over, nor to buy food and travel beyond their voyage. She made the decision to board the ship and move on to America. Other travelers took pity on them and gave them some of their food.

Both Nathaniel and Nathaniel Hutchinson were instrumental in the establishment of the Uniondale Baptist Church in Clay County, Kansas. The people of the community got together and decided they wanted a church. Then they voted and decided it would be Baptist. Nathaniel was an elder on the executive committee while Nathaniel Hutchinson was a deacon.

Nathaniel Hutchinson married Alice Yarrow in 1884 at the Uniondale Baptist Church. Nathaniel Sr. died in 1886 and is buried at the Uniondale Baptist Cemetery in Clay County, Kansas.

After the Great Chicago Fire that destroyed nearly the entire city, there was a great need for laborers to help rebuild the city. All of the Dring sons moved to Chicago for that reason. All of the Dring daughters stayed in Kansas where they married and had many children. The town of Clay Center, Kansas has hundreds of Dring descendants, although none of them carry the Dring name.

Nathaniel Hutchinson Dring and Alice Yarrow had 11 children in 14 years and adopted a foundling left on their doorstep. Alice died in childbirth with their 11th child. Nathaniel went back to Kansas to recuperate emotionally after Alice’s death. There he met Agnes Cowell, remarried, and had three more children. With 15 children all together, you have to laugh at the reasoning for naming their first child Constance Kate Alice Yarrow Dring – they gave her all the names they wanted a daughter to have because they were afraid they might not have any more children.

Their sixth child, and first son, was Ralph Harold Dring, born March 5, 1890. From the time he was a toddler, Ralph always wore boots. And that became his nickname – Boots. About 1914 Boots was driving a horse drawn wagon with chicken crates on it for delivery. General Electric was having a company picnic on a ferryboat on the Chicago River. Something happened on the water that drew everyone’s attention and all the people on the ferry went to the water side to see what was happening. All of a sudden the ferryboat turned over on its side. Everyone was thrown into the water, which was very cold and people were drowning. Boots happened by about that time, saw what was happening, and threw in the chicken crates, which floated and people grabbed on to them. He saved many lives that day.

Boots married Elizabeth Veronica McGuire on November 25, 1914 in Chicago, Illinois. They went on to have five children, 28 grandchildren, 53 great grandchildren, and 16 great-great grandchildren, with quadruplets to arrive next year.

Boots, being English, always claimed he hated the Irish. But nevertheless, he married an Irish woman and he died on St. Patrick’s Day in 1974.
