(Arfakhshadh Arpachshad); `Ability'
Born: abt. 2342 BC Died: 1904 BC

Arpa?ša? ISO 259-3 ?arpakšad; Arabic: '??????', Arfakhshad?; "healer," "releaser") was one of the five sons of Shem, the son of Noah (Genesis 10:22, 24; 11:10-13; 1 Chron. 1:17-18). His brothers were Elam, Asshur, Lud and Aram; he is an ancestor of Abraham. He is said by Gen. 11:10 to have been born two years after the Flood, when Shem was 100.

Arpachshad's son is called Salah, except in the Septuagint, where his son is Cainan (????), Salah being Arpachshad's grandson. Cainan is also identified as Arpachshad's son in Luke 3:36 and Jubilees 8:1.

Other ancient Jewish sources, particularly the Book of Jubilees, point to Arpachshad as the immediate progenitor of Ura and Kesed, who allegedly founded the city of Ur Kesdim (Ur of the Chaldees) on the west bank of the Euphrates (Jub. 9:4; 11:1-7) - the same bank where Ur, identified by Leonard Woolley in 1927 as Ur of the Chaldees, is located.[1]

Donald B. Redford has asserted[2] that Arpachshad is to be identified with Babylon. Until Woolley's identification of Ur, Arpachshad was understood by many Jewish and Muslim scholars to be an area in northern Mesopotamia, Urfa of the Yazidis. This led to the identification of Arpachshad with Urfa-Kasid (due to similarities in the names ??????? and ?????) - a land associated with the Khaldis, whom Josephus confused with the Chaldean.

Another Arpachshad is referenced in the deuterocanonical Book of Judith as being the "king of the Medes" contemporary with Nebuchadnezzar II, but this is thought to be a corruption of the historical name Cyaxares (Hvakhshathra).

214 Audrey Maxine Ellis' Half 72nd Great Grand Uncle

Asher (Modern Asher Tiberian 'Ašer), in the Book of Genesis, is the second son of Jacob and Zilpah, and the founder of the Tribe of Asher.


The text of the Torah argues that the name of Asher means happy/blessing, implying a derivation from the Hebrew term osher (with the same meaning); the Torah actually presents this in two variations-beoshri (meaning in my good fortune), and ishsheruni, which textual scholars attribute to different sources-one to the Yahwist and the other to the Elohist.[1] Many scholars suspect that the name of Asher may have more to do with a deity originally worshipped by the tribe, either Asherah,[2] or Ashur, the chief Assyrian deity;[3] the latter possibility is cognate with Asher.[3]

Biblical narrative

Asher played a role in the plot to sell his brother Joseph into slavery.(Gen. 37:23-36) Asher and his four sons and daughter settled in Canaan.[2] On his deathbed, Jacob blesses Asher by saying that "his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties"(Genesis 49:20).

The eighth son of the patriarch Jacob, and the traditional progenitor of the tribe Asher. However, some Biblical scholars view this as postdiction, an eponymous metaphor providing an aetiology of the connectedness of the tribe to others in the Israelite confederation.[4]

Asher is represented as the younger brother of Gad; these two being the sons of Zilpah, the handmaid of Leah (Gen. xxx. 10 et seq., xxxv. 26). The Biblical account shows Zilpah's status as a handmaid change to an actual wife of Jacob Genesis 30:9,13. Her handmaid status is regarded by some biblical scholars as indicating that the authors saw the tribe of Asher as being not of entirely Israelite origin;[3] scholars believe that Asher consisted of certain clans affiliated with portions of the Israelite tribal confederation, but which were never incorporated into the body politic.[3]

The Torah states that Asher had four sons and one daughter, who were born in Canaan and migrated with him to Egypt,[5] with their descendants remaining there until the Exodus;[6] this seems to be partly contradicted by Egyptian records (assuming a late Exodus date), according to which a group named Aseru, a name from which Asher is probably derived,[3] were, in the 14th century BC, living in a similar region to Asher's traditional territory, in Canaan.[3] Asher's daughter, Serah (also transliterated as Serach), is the only granddaughter of Jacob mentioned in the Torah (Gen. 46:17). Her mother is not named; according to classical rabbinical literature, Serach's mother was named Hadurah, and was a descendant of Eber, but although Hadurah was a wife of Asher, it was her second marriage, and Serach's father was actually Hadurah's first husband, who had died.[7] In classical rabbinical literature, Hadurah's marriage to Asher was his second marriage as well, his first having been to Adon, who was a descendant of Ishmael;[3] the Book of Jubilees contradicts this, arguing instead that Asher's wife was named Lyon (which probably means dove).[3]

Asher's sons were: Jimnah, Ishuah, Isui, and Beriah.

In rabbinical literature

According to classical rabbinical literature, Asher had informed his brothers about Reuben's incest with Bilhah, and as a result Asher came to be on bad terms with his brothers, though once Reuben confessed, the brothers realised they had been unjust towards Asher;[3] Asher's motivation is described, by classical rabbinical sources, as being entirely innocent of evil intent, and always in search of harmony between his brothers.[3] He was the very one whose endeavor it had always been to reconcile the brothers, especially when they disputed as to who among them was destined to be the ancestor of the priests (Sifre, Deut. 355). In the Test. Patr., Asher, 5, Asher is regarded as the example of a virtuous man who with singlemindedness strives only for the general good.

Asher was born on the 20th of Shevat 2199 (1562 BCE). According to some accounts 20th of Shevat is also the date of his passing.

Asher married twice. His first wife was 'Adon, a great-granddaughter of Ishmael; his second, Hadurah, a granddaughter of Eber and a widow. By her first marriage Hadurah had a daughter Serah, whom Asher treated as affectionately as if she had been of his own flesh and blood, so that the Bible itself speaks of Serah as Asher's daughter ("Sefer ha-Yashar, Wayesheb"). According to the Book of Jubilees (xxxiv. 20), Asher's wife was named "Iyon" (probably , "dove").

Asher's descendants in more than one regard deserved their name ("Asher" meaning "happiness"). The tribe of Asher was the one most blessed with male children (Sifre, l.c.); and its women were so beautiful that priests and princes sought them in marriage (Gen. R. lxxi., end). The abundance of oil in the land possessed by Asher so enriched the tribe that none of them needed to hire a habitation (Gen. R. l.c.); and the soil was so fertile that in times of scarcity, and especially in the Sabbatical year, Asher provided all Israel with olive-oil (Sifre, l.c.; Men. 85b; Targ. Yer. on Deut. xxxiii. 24). The Asherites were also renowned for wisdom (Men. l.c.).J. Sr. L. G.

Scholarly interpretations

A number of scholars have proposed that the tribe of Asher actually originated as the Weshesh group of Sea Peoples[8][9] - the name Weshesh (or rather Uashesh/Ueshesh - for easy pronunciation, this is usually transcribed into English as Weshesh) can be decomposed as men of Uash in Hebrew, and hence possibly a corruption of Asher.[10]

231 " JOHN ATWOOD was born in St. Martins, London, England, December 24, 1614; died in Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1676 (will probated March 7, 1676), son Nathaniel Administrator; married about 1642, SARAH MASTERSON, born in Holland 1620, died 1701/02 when her estate was probated, son Nathaniel Administrator...." "John Atwood came early to this country and lived in Lynn (then Saugus); returned to England and came back in the 'Hopewell' in 1635. He was Governor Assistant in 1636." (Last sentence lined through by another reader.)
[John Atwood of Plymouth, Mass, page 5]

"Ye Atte Wode Annals," 1928, by Elijah Francis Atwood, page 9. John WOOD is frequently referred to as (alias ATWOOD). Had three (?) brothers, Harmon (Part 4, pg 1, Harmon Line), Stephen (Part 3, pg.1) Stephen Line) known as both WOOD and ATWOOD, and William. William may not be brother. Stephen born by 1620. Of his sons, only Nathaniel had children.

The Hopewell passenger list of 1635 lists three people with the last name of Wood: Elizabeth, William, and John. This is probably William Wood and his wife, Elizabeth Cooke Wood, traveling in the company of John "Atwood" Wood. If so, this John and William could have been cousins. William does not look like he fits to be this John's brother, but he still might be a kinsman further removed.

232 Possibly the only house in Chatham that is preserved in its original form, the Atwood house was built in 1752 by Joseph Atwood, a sea captain and "navigator of unfrequented parts." He moved from Eastham and acquired thirty acres in Chatham, bordering on Stage Harbor and the Mill Pond. According to family records, he built the house in a year when he stayed home from sea. He feared losing his ship while England and France were at war during the reign of George II of England, whose subject he was at the time.
The house is typical of those built on Cape Cod during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; it is unusual in that it has a gambrel roof, a type that was rare on the Cape in those early days. Early Cape houses were an adaptation of the English cottages of Cornwall and Devon, the areas from which the first Cape settlers had come. There are three variations of the typical Cape Cod house: the half house, the three-quarter house, and the full house. The Atwood House is the latter type; its typical first floor consists of a sinkroom, a kitchen or keeping room, a parlor, a sitting room, two bedrooms, and a buttery. The second floor also is typical, having a large open attic and one finished bedroom. The finished bedroom in this house is larger than in many houses of the type and is unique in having a fireplace and the remnants of the original stenciling around the top of the walls. There are three fireplaces on the first floor: in the parlor, in the sitting room, and in the kitchen, (or keeping room) whose large fireplace is designed for cooking. Next to this large fireplace with its iron crane for holding pots, is the brick oven, sometimes called a beehive oven because of its shape. This shape is clearly displayed in a small closet off the sitting room which backs up to the kitchen fireplace and oven, making an ideal place for drying herbs and storing items such as salt and sugar. Another unusual feature in The Atwood House is the built-in corner cupboard in the parlor. In 1833 John Atwood, the grandson of the builder of the house, added a wing for his second wife. This room served as a new kitchen complete with cast iron stove, certainly a great improvement over the cooking facilities in the old kitchen.

241 Audrey Maxine Ellis' 55th Great Grandmother

Aufidia or Alfidia (flourished 1st century BC) was a woman of Ancient Rome. She was a daughter to Roman Magistrate Marcus Aufidius Lurco and an unknown mother. She was a member of the gens Aufidia, a Roman family of Plebs status which appeared in the Roman Republic and Roman Empire, and became a family of consular rank. Her father originally came from Fundi (modern Fondi, Italy).

She married the future praetor, Marcus Livius Drusus Claudianus. They had at least two children: a daughter Livia Drusilla (58 BC-29) and a son Marcus Livius Drusus, who served as a Roman consul. Livia was to become the first Roman Empress and third wife of the first Roman Emperor Augustus. Aufidia would be the maternal grandmother to Roman Emperor Tiberius Claudius Nero and Roman General Nero Claudius Drusus. The Roman Emperors Caligula, Claudius and Nero were her direct descendants.

Aufidia in Literature and Popular Culture

Deborah Moore appears as Alfidia, the mother of a fictionalized Livia, in two 2007 episodes of the HBO/BBC series Rome. In A Necessary Fiction, she is present when a married Livia catches the eye of young Octavian, and both women are pleased when he insists that Livia divorce her current husband to marry him. Later, in De Patre Vostro, Alfidia lightly questions Octavian's sister Octavia's loyalty to her family at dinner, and is present when Octavian's mother Atia of the Julii finally puts daughter-in-law Livia in her place.

Ansegisel (also Ansgise, Ansegus, or Anchises) (c. 602 or 610 - murdered before 679 or 662) was the son of Saint Arnulf, bishop of Metz and his wife Saint Doda. He served King Sigbert III of Austrasia (634-656) as a duke (Latin dux, a military leader) and domesticus. He was killed sometime before 679, slain in a feud by his enemy Gundewin.

Marriage and issue

He married sometime after 639 to Saint Begga, the daughter of Pepin of Landen. They had the following children:
Pippin II (635 or 640-December 16, 714), mayor of the palace of Austrasia
Possibly Clotilda of Heristal (650-699), married King Theodoric III of Neustria

Pepin (also Peppin, Pipin, or Pippin) of Landen (c. 580 - 27 February 640), also called the Elder or the Old, was the Mayor of the Palace of Austrasia under the Merovingian king Dagobert I from 623 to 629. He was also the mayor for Sigebert III from 639 until his own death.

Pepin's father is named Carloman by the Chronicle of Fredegar, the chief source for his life. His byname comes from his probable birthplace: Landen, modern Belgium. He is sometimes called Pepin I and his other nicknames (Elder and Old) come from his position at the head of the family called the Pippinids after him. Through the marriage of his daughter Begga to Ansegisel, a son of Arnulf of Metz, the clans of the Pippinids and the Arnulfings were united, giving rise to a family which would eventually rule the Franks as the Carolingians.

In 613, several leading magnates of Austrasia and Burgundy abandoned Brunhilda, the great-grandmother and regent of their king, Sigebert II, and turned to Chlothar II of Neustria for support, promising not to rise in defense of the queen-regent and recognizing Chlothar as rightful regent and guardian of the young king. Chief among these leading men were Warnachar II, Rado, Arnulf, and Pepin. The latter two were described by Fredegar as the "two most powerful barons of Austrasia" and they made some agreement with Chlothar at Andernach. However, while Rado was confirmed as mayor in Austrasia and Warnachar in Burgundy, Pepin did not receive his reward until 623, when he was appointed mayor in Austrasia after Chlothar made his young son Dagobert king there. Arnulf, his lifelong friend, was appointed adviser to the new king alongside him.

Pepin was praised by his contemporaries for his good government and wise counsel. Though some enemies tried to turn the king against him, their plots were foiled and Pepin remained on good terms with the king until 629, when, for reasons unknown, he retired (or was retired) to his estates, where he remained for the next decade, until Dagobert's death.

On his death, Pepin came out of retirement to take on the mayoralty in Austrasia for the heir Sigebert III and to oversee the distribution of the treasury between Sigebert and his brother, Clovis II, and his stepmother Nanthild, who was ruling on Clovis' behalf in Neustria and Burgundy. Sigebert's share of the inheritance was amicably surrendered, partly because of the friendship between Pepin and the Burgundian mayor of the palace, Aega. Pepin and Arnulf's successor as chief counselor to the king, Cunibert, Bishop of Cologne, received the treasure at Compičgne and brought it back to Metz. Not long after, both Pepin and Aega died. He was so popular in Austrasia that, though he was never canonized, he was listed as a saint in some martyrologies. His feast day was 21 February.

He left two daughters and two sons by his equally famous wife, Itta:
Begga, married the aforementioned Ansegisel and later canonized
Grimoald, later mayor of the palace like his father
Bavo (or Allowin), became a hermit and later canonized
Gertrude, entered the convent of Nivelles founded by her mother, also later canonized
